Lucifer by Shinee

My younger sister, ika, loved artist from Korean and become too obsessed with them which is okay to me. One day, i heard ika singing a korean song by a new band which Shinee. To my surprise, the title is LUCIFER!!! wtf wei!!

I told ika ; "Do u know what Lucifer mean???"
and she reply ; "No, i don't"

I explain to her that Lucifer means devil or fallen angel in english. Or in other words, it means iblis or satan. And ika was extremely shocked! She doesnt know that the song that she repeatedly sings means satan. That was sick! Why would someone create a song name satan in it and make everyone else listen and sing to it. It become worst when i know that this song is already well-known to others and people love it. OMG!! Are you people just blind or merely stupid to listen and sing this song?!

Then, i did a little bit of studying about this song. I found the lyric and its translation. Here goes the translation;


Even if I try to avoid you, I can’t find a place to hide
I’m trapped by you, who I can’t even deny
If it was love, if you really loved me, don’t do this to me
Her whisper is the Lucifer

*If you tie me down and trap me
Then the love is also tied down
The future is also tied down
It can’t grow anymore
Freely empty yourself and look at me
I’ll fill you only, I’ll completely fill you only

Your undeniable spell is the Lucifer
Your undeniable magic is the Lucifer
When I approach you
With your angelic face
Say the reason you live is for me
Say it

When I first saw you, I stopped for a short time
As if someone was tightly seizing my heart, not letting it go (Still)
You took all, all, all, all, all, all of my heart just like that
You make my heart burn out when you’re not here

Loverholic, robotronic, loverholic, robotronic

The love stories I shared with you
You look towards the same places I do
When we feel that we can’t get any more perfect
Only stare at me, you want me more, more, more, more, more, more
Only look at me, you’re the center of everything, thing, thing, thing, thing, thing

Since before, something has been wrong, you’ve been weird
The love I knew left my side, one by one
All I have is you

I feel like I’ve become a clown trapped in a glass castle
I dance for you, who will never be satisfied
You look into me openly, touching my brain
I think I’ve become a fool
I think I’m only getting more and more attracted to you

Loverholic, robotronic, loverholic, robotronic

It’s not that I hate you or that I dislike you
It’s just that kind of stare is a burden is all
I’m not going anywhere
I’ve waited like this by only looking at you

Your stare captures me
As the days went by, it became sharper
I’m tired of your obsession
I’ve been cut a lot, my heart is bleeding
When it’s about time for me to pass out
She comes to me like an angel, saying “I love you”
Even though I knew it was really you
You really confused me

I feel like I’ve become a clown trapped in a glass castle
Leave me alone, when I’m free, I’ll be able to truly love you
Leave me alone, don’t make me sick of you
So I can truly look at you

If you tie me down and trap me
Then love is also tied down
The future is also tied down
It can’t grow anymore
Loverholic, robotronic, loverholic, robotronic
Your undeniable spell is the Lucifer

When i read all this translation, my anger towards this song become worst. Obviously, this song depicted about satan. Telling about satan. And WORSHIPING them. Does people do not realize it? It is purely stated in almost all the line of the lyric. This song is not telling about couples that are in love nor telling about life. Its about SATAN!!

I wonder why in this Islamic country where we're fully banning stuff that are worshiping Satan like Black Metal and we will fight against them. We hate them, we kill them, we terminate them. Lucifer by Shinee is also one of them but it is in other form. Instead of using approach like what Black Metal did, Shinee use a group consist of cute guys or whatsoever to worship Satan. Then, this songs somehow manage to escape and infiltrated to us. To the listeners and become widely popular, with no action from everyone else. It seems that we're doing nothing about it and feels that it's nothing wrong with this song.

A passion to cook

I obsessed to cook! It includes learning on how to cook until to the stage of making it. My obsession starts in this year i presume. Its start so sudden though. When i start to voice out my passion to my mom, she smile on it. After that, my mum brings me and guide me to enter the world of cooking.

So, my journey goes on. I took a baby step to learn it. Seriously, its not that easy or not that difficult to learn it. My mum always said that "Masak nie kita yang buat dia" which means that we are the one that take full control of everything in order to prepare it. If its not sweet enough, add some sugar and if its not salty enough, add some salt in it. Sounds easy to her but damn difficult to me. Haih..

I remember that i always find an excuse to stay alone in the house when everyone else is going out so that i can cook alone in kitchen without no one to intervene me. At that time i will do practical works after enough hearing theoretical stuff from my mum. After finish cooking, i will taste it myself. If i not satisfied, i try again and again and again......

While in semester 6, i have to live in rented house outside UiTM. After going back from class which usually ends at 6 pm, i will rush to kitchen to cook. While i can choose to relax or ease my mind in room after a whole day full of classes, i instead choose to cook.Sometimes, its really tiring but i enjoyed it. What makes me more tiring is when seeing others relaxing while i have to cook. I sometimes wonder, why im doing all this since i can cook only to myself? And why i have to put extra burden to myself? The answers lies in the smile of others when they eat what i cook for them.

There is one moment when i feel like to quit from the world of cooking. One day, i preparing daging masak merah. It was my first time making that dish. I accidentally cut the daging wrongly and makes its hard to chew it down. Although they eat it until it finish, to my surprise, one of my room mate comment that "nie daging ke batu" which totally blew me away.

It was a lesson for me which i thinks that i have to bare with what other says. Despite all that, i would say that my cooking skill have slightly improved since i cook at least 5 times a week for my 6 house mates. Its true when people said practice make perfect. Now, i can make curry, sambal tumis, masak lemak, fried noodle and other Malay food. Although its nothing to be proud of but i do still proud of myself.

Plus, i also discovered one thing. I realized that whenever i cook something i can channel my tension, anger or sadness towards it. Its really weird though. But its good to know that and i know somehow it will benefits me. =)
