Helen Keller

Assalamualaikum,

I decided to find a quote from Helen Keller; after the inspirational quotes on this blog showed a quote from her which says: When you do the best you can, you never know what miracle is wrought in your life, or in the life of another.

While browsing, I was so surprise to find tones of websites under “Helen Keller jokes”. At first, I thought the websites quoted jokes from Helen Keller. Unfortunately, the websites actually amass jokes regarding Helen Keller.
The first joke wrote: How does Helen Keller drive? One hand on the wheel and one hand one the road!
The other said: How do you Punish Helen Keller? 1- Rearrange the Furniture 2- Give her a basketball and tell her to read it. 3- Tell her to find the corners in a round room.
And another one: Why does Helen Keller have holes in her face? She tried eating with a fork.

I can tell that these people were having fun joking on her like that. The jokes sounded more and more offensive as I read, so I stopped.

Obviously they are aware of whom Helen Keller was and yet, they showed no respect at all. First, she was deaf and blind. Secondly, she was a great human being. None of these two facts touches their souls or make sense in their intellect.

Some jokes are better left untold.

Wassalam.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
