Cheap War

Insulting other people’s faith, religion, culture, race, and everything in your way will never make you any better. It makes you as bad as your insult.
The moment you insult others thinking that you have the right to do so because you are better than them, you are actually downgrading yourself even lower than your insult.
For me, this type of psychological war is cheap. You are getting nowhere. The ability to irate people is not recognized as skill. It is attitude problem.
These kinds of people, they feed themselves with the response they get. They more irritating you are, the more excited they become. Before you know it, they get new things on you.
Do not satisfy them by responding unwisely. Do not let them have you. Most importantly, do not be a monster to defeat another monster. It is not worth it.

Ramadhan, Bertemu Kembali

"Marhaban Ya Ramadhan", begitu hati mahu memulakan bicara. Tapi tiba-tiba hati terdetik, yakinkah bertemu dengan Ramadhan kali ini? Kemungkinannya esok atau lusa, tapi ajal pasti tiba tanpa dapat kita duga...
Ya Allah, Dalam syukurku untuk usia yang Kau sisakan di penghujung Syaaban ini, kumohon kesempatan untuk bertemu dengan RamadhanMu. Semoga terlerai kerinduan ini. Ya Allah, Dalam syukurku untuk usia yang Kau sisakan untuk bertemu kembali dengan Ramadhan kali ini, kumohon kesihatan yang baik dan kemudahan untuk beribadah sebaik-baiknya... Semoga dapat kurebut rahmatMu, keampunanMu dan pembebasan daripada nerakaMu.
Amiin, Ya Allah.
Selamat kembali wahai Ramadhan bulan kemuliaan. Selamat menjalani ibadah puasa kepada semua Muslimin dan Muslimat.

Breaking Off Flower

Breaking Off Flowers
Written by Lee Kyu Bo, a famous poet during Goryeo Dynasty who lived from 1169 to 1241 from Rooftop Prince Ep. 1 Credit to: Drama Haven
"The peony blossoms hold dew, like grains of pearl The beautiful lady breaks off and picks the blossom, and passes before a window Holding onto a smile, she asks her husband Is the flower prettier or is my countenance prettier The husband teases her on purpose, saying For prettiness, I would say, the flower and its stem would win The beautiful lady became jealous at the winning of flower Stepping and destroying the flower with its stem, saying If the flower is prettier than concubine Tonight, sleep together with the flower"
* I particularly love Bu-yong. And this poem reading scene is one of my favourite ^______^ *

Kembali dan Kesedihan

Kematian bawa melihat Allah yang Maha Hidup. Kehilangan bawa melihat Allah Yang Maha Ada. Kesedihan ini buat penghapus cinta kepada dunia...
Kudrat dan upaya kita sekadar kudrat segumpal tanah. Memang tidak terdaya dan tidak tercarikan kekuatan itu. Allahlah Yang Maha Membantu. Dialah Yang Maha Memberi. Allah akan beri kekuatan itu kepada kita.
Kita tidak pernah bersendirian dalam berhadapan dengan musibah. Kita ada Allah Yang Maha Penyayang.
* Another friend lost her father this evening. Daripada Allah kita datang, kepadaNya kita semua kembali. Losing a parent, losing someone, is hard. Kekuatan daripada Allah sahaja yang mampu membantu kita mengharunginya. Semoga Allah mengampunkan dosa kedua ibu bapa kita sama ada mereka masih hidup ataupun telah meninggal dunia. Amiin Ya Latif. *

Sumbangnya Dejavu Di Kinabalu

Terasanya belum pernah lagi perkata di atas dijadikan sebahagian daripada status FB. But I just could not help myself from using that term when this drama goes from cheap (it's a Malay version of Summer Scent, duh!) straight into the drain.
It bothers me when they make it look so original like "idea asal by bla bla bla" when it clearly a remake. Fine. We have seen remakes of great drama and movies. I could live with that and not that I'm gonna stick to watching it anyway. [Being able to write about it does not make me a 'fan'. How can you ignore when you are sitting with a group of people watching it?]
Yang menjadikan drama ini bongok ialah bila banyak sangat adegan-adegan yang clearly against our culture, not to mention, Islam. To name some - Inara in Ammar's bedroom hanging her pictures, Ammar and Nadira spending their night together in the middle of a bonfire(?), Nadira and Ammar alone in a room (where Nadira supposed to…

Common Gynaecological Problems in Women - A Health Talk

I attended a health talk on Common Gynaecological Problems in Women by Dr. Narinder Singh from Island Hospital, Penang in conjuction of Agilent Health Week. I must say, he is one cute ObGyn! He even models a uterus himself to better illustrate what's going on inside there in certain health condition. Haha. You could only imagine how a guy did that up to Victoria Secret level and not cheap porn.
To wrap up today's session:
1) Know your body, girls. If something goes wrong or does not look or feel normal, go to your doctor. Don't just talk to your girlfriends.
2) To whom it may concern; never miss your pap smear.
3) Don't frighten yourselves from getting information about your health condition. Be curious, be cautious. We have advanced health technology; you just need to reach for the help.
4) Skip buying more shoes, handbags or garments you don't really need and spend the extra money on HPV vaccination - per the doctor. Didn't I tell you he is a cute ObGyn? ;)

A Crush Heart Break

Crush heartbreak is still a heartbreak. It still hurts. Well, not that hurt hurt. I usually laugh through it and make a 48 pt bold note not to steal the tiniest glance at the target, ever again. Usually life goes on as per normal and you’ll get over it. By ‘usually’, does not mean it happen that much. But you got my point, right?
Saying it out loud, me.

Pejuang Pena


Hari ini Hilal Asyraf menukilkan bacaan yang menyentuh hati saya. Karya beliau yang terakhir kali sebagai seorang bujang - esok beliau akan bernikah. Yang menyentuh hati bukan kisah cinta beliau. Tetapi kisah bagaimana LangitIlahi dilahirkan untuk perkenalan para pembaca sekelian. Juga bagaimana kelahiran LangitIlahi itu sendiri 'melahirkan' seorang Hilal Asyraf.

"Semua itu membentuk kehidupan saya.
Kehidupan yang sukar menjadi lebih ringan.
Kehidupan yang sepi menjadi lebih terisi.
Dan Allah SWT izin, kehidupan saya sendiri mula berubah."

"Allah SWT memberikan saya potensi, maka saya bercita-cita untuk tidak membazirkannya."

Forza Azzurri -- Congrats & Thank You

Whoa. What a game!
Almost drop my jaw for the first goal. Bit my fingers for the second goal. Lost my words when Thiago Motta left the game. Experienced vertigo for the third goal. Lie down for the fourth.
Full time: Italy 0 - 4 Spain ( Silva 14' | Jordi Alba 41' | Torres 84' | Juan Mata 88' )
Football heart break is genuine heart break. Especially when two sweethearts fight against each other. Can't you two just be in one team?! (sincerely me, being silly~)

It is heart crushing to see Buffon leading the squad for their silver medallion. It is epic to see Casillas with the trophy. It would be more epic to see Buffon with the trophy ^_____^ v
Winning EUFA EURO 2012 is important for both Italy and Spain. Italy to wins after 44 years and Spain to wins their third European title consequently. My darling Azzurri has given their best; but best men win (better men win?). La Roja definitely deserve the title. We have seen how determination being redefined by Spain in World Cup 2010. They…
