MH17: Lesson in Life

Assalamualaikum,

Terjaga dari tidur pagi tadi dengan bermimpikan Abderrahman, anak kepada Allahyarham Ahmad Hakimi Hanapi, Pembantu Juruterbang MH17. Imej anakanda Abderrahman yang didukung rakan bapanya ketika solat jenazah pada hari Jumaat semacam terlekat difikiran. Jatuh sayang kepadanya...

Kesemua 298 mangsa yang terkorban dalam tragedi MH17 membawa cerita dan pengajaran yang berbekas di hati. Tapi entah kenapa, kisah keluarga Allahyarham Ahmad Hakimi, isterinya Asmaa dan anakanda Abderrahman terasa lebih dekat dan lebih peribadi. Instead of me reaching out to them, I feel like they are reaching out to me...

'Perkenalan' dengan mereka membuatkan aku mahu menjadi hamba Allah yang lebih baik. Aku mahu lebih dekat dengan Allah. Aku mahu kutip lebih ilmu untuk mempersiapkan diri di jalan Allah.

Kata-kata bapa kepada Allahyarham Ahmad Hakimi umpama seal kepada banyak perkara... Ya, apa yang terjadi ini telah membuktikan betapa Allah itu Maha Pengasih dan Maha Penyayang. Ya, apa yang terjadi ini adalah kesan dari perbuatan tangan-tangan kita sendiri.

Melihat bagaimana mereka berhadapan dengan tragedi ini amat bertepatan dengan ayat "hanya dengan mengingati Allah hati akan menjadi tenang". Sungguh hati-hati yang dekat dengan Allah berbeza dari hati yang jauh daripadaNya.

Aku mahu jadi golongan yang sentiasa melihat kasih sayang Allah dalam semua keadaan, lebih-lebih lagi dalam musibah. Aku mahu jadi golongan yang sentiasa bersangka baik terhadap Allah. Aku mahu jadi golongan yang mendapat bantuan Allah.

I don't know how to end this entry. I am sorry that we meet in this sorrowful event. But I am grateful to Allah that we meet and you taught me a great lesson in life. I might forget them at one point in my life, but the lesson learnt will forever engraved in me.  Semoga setiap kebaikan yang anda semua ajarkan kepada kami Allah beri balasan yang sangat baik.

Doa kami untuk anda semua, 298 jiwa, waris serta kenalan.

Nota: Kita semua mempunyai keinginan. The flaming desire enough to push us to make a deal with the devil. Tapi keinginan bagaimanakah yang sanggup dibina di atas kehilangan dan kemusnahan orang lain? What type of desire so superior that drenching the world in blood looks okay?

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…
