Isn't it ironic... don't you think?


Assalamualaikum. Salam 100 Penulis.

Suddenly i remember one of my practical teacher that taught English when i am in form four. He's also an ex-student from my school. I still remember when we were learning English literature titled The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant, the most important thing that he highlighted was the presence of Ironic in life. That was the first time i know what irony is about. 


Do you guys know what is ironic actually?



An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

This is some of the examples of Ironic that i took from the lyrics of Ironic by Alanis Morisette. It is simple as that. But, when you turn back your memories, you will find so many ironic things happened to your life. No matter how small that thing is, but still, ironic happens in your life. 

It is not your will. It is written in your fate. Nobody can't run from having ironic things happen around him/her.   

It is the matter of how you deal with it.

Live you life on your way. Live happily. ;D

ironinya hidup ni mmg bnyak yang menyedihkan nn..hehehe mgkin kalau sedih lebih mengingati tuhan? atau part of ujian? atau cara kita handle hidup tu

ironically. of course. ironinya hidup ini in a humorous way. menyedihkan, menyakitkan - but it at the end of the day, thinking of all those thing, i just wanna laugh. sad, but i'm laughing. how ironic.

Alanis-one of the coolest female rockers of recent time. Lagu nie one of my favourites. I think almost everyone can relate to the lyrics of her song.

memang terlalu banyak ironi dalam kehidupan kita.. tapi kita masih x sedar2 tentang tu. paling sadis, bila ironi tu sebenarnya dah bagi sign untuk kita berubah, tapi kita langsung x merasainya..

dan..itulah apa yang saya rasakan sekarang..
