Facing your fear


Finally, community health posting in Tampin has come to an end. Hopefully, we'll be able to go back by tomorrow. Tapi bila fikir balik, rase cam takut lak nak tinggalkan Tampin ni.

...Why is that? Probably because we had so much fun here in Tampin and this posting felt almost like a loooooooooooong holiday for us all. Like a fantasy world we build to get away from what's waiting for us in Ampang--all work with no play

Forensic posting + GP posting + CH posting = H.O.L.I.D.A.Y *sigh* What happy times they are...

Janjiku pada mama

Year 1994:2.30 pm

"Nanti, kalau ude ngan aishah dah besar mesti hantar mama kat rumah orang tua, kan?"

Aku terkejut. Statement mama just came out of the blue...but I know it got something to do with the drama we were watching together that evening..

I said, "Takdelah. Knape mama cakap camtu?" "Haah. Takkan kitorg hantar mama ngan abah kat rumah org tua," adikku petah berkata walaupun umurnya baru 5 tahun.

She hugged us real tight and I swear I could remember her smiling.


1995: it was late

I was excited about---something (forgive the bad memory) and in all my frivolity and innocence, I asked my beloved mother, "Apa impian mama?"

"Mama ingat satu hari nanti, mama nak travel satu dunia. I want to see the world."

Amazed by her resolution, I replied, "Kalau ude dah besar nanti..dah byk duit, ude bawak mama melancong satu dunia. Kite gi same-same."

Mama tersenyum.


Will I be who I was then?

Narrated by Abu Hurairah; a man came to Prophet SAW and said:

"Oh Messenger of Allah, who among the people is most deserving of my good company?" He said, "Your mother." He asked, "Then who?" He said, "Your mother." He asked, "Then who?" He said, "Your mother." He asked, "Then who?" He said, "Then your father."

(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Useless ego


WARNING! Ini adalah luahan kebencian aku terhadap seseorg.

Kenape wujudnye sesetengah org yg fikir that the whole world revolves around them? What makes them above others? Is it because he's a man? or because he thinks he's a know-it-all? Mane pergi kebebasan individu yg konon2 nye diperjuangkan?..bile kene kat batang idung sendiri,mula lah merengek..mangsa keadaan lah,dizalimi lah...


Ya Allah, forgive me for hating one of my muslim brothers for the next 5 minutes..

But i just can't understand what are they thinking..who are they to impose their personal ideas and perception to others? JUST LEAVE US BE..and the funny thing is--they seem to think that people change things just because they said so..perasan nye..

How's that? Take it like a man and say it to my face if u dare.

5 weeks have passed in Tampin---good thing my sanity is still here,eh? Here's some tips on how to keep your sanity while staying in Rest House Tampin..

  1. Bring ear-muff/ear-plug to block out unpleasant singing from upstairs
  2. Get a driving license--fast and beg your parents to buy you a car
  3. OR keep your friends who have their own car close
  4. Visit Melaka and go eat ikan bakar in Umbai
  5. Take a dip in Tampin's very own 'onsen' in Gadek
  6. Bring a broadband with you--your dad's or your own

Words of wisdom for today,

It takes great effort to build something, but it only takes an instant to destroy it.

Criticize in life


I admit it's easier to criticize others rather than to try and understand them..and even if we try to, it's frustrating (and waste of time) if the other person doesn't reciprocate (T T)..

Lately, i realised that the more we understand our friends,the harder it is for us to be frank about things..kalau kat realiti tv show,the judges don't really know the contestants and that's why diorang boleh bagi really harsh comments..for friends,well--you can't really do that..nanti mesti ade yang terase hati (at least bdk pompuan kot)...So? what can we do kalau kawan kite buat salah? do we just stood back and watch? hoping that one day she'll come to her senses? tp org slalu kate, kalau sayang kawan kite tegur,jgn biar die terus hanyut..*sigh* easier said than done...

And the longer we knew each other,the less respect we have for one another..i find this especially true..why? after 5 years, do we suddenly take things for granted? a simple 'thank you' or 'please' is almost non-existent when you're friends..they are only used by those who are acquaintances..kite amek kesempatan atas kebaikan kawan kite..mentang2 la die penyabar,tak cepat melenting,we look down on them--as if we are better than them..mase tgh buat survey kat Tampin ni, i thought to myself; "kalau dgn org luar i can be this nice,why not to my family and friends?"

It is much more valuable to look for the strengths in others-you gain nothing by criticizing people's imperfections.
