How did earth come to know about how terrible men (humans) would become? Was there actually anything like the situation of the Tolkien's middle earth then? The society consisted of men, dwarves, elves, halflings at war with the orcs and uruk hai. Or did they manage to reach to the peak of civilizations like those potrayed in Star Wars and Star Trek? A technology so advanced, that the wars were extended to the middle of stars, planets and galaxies. And there would always be wars and destruction nonetheless.
Were there any prophets sent to them? Have they been thru their own apocalyse? Have they gone thru their judgement day? Could there really be a civilization of men that had caused such a devastating destruction on earth, as claimed by mother-earth herself, when she denied Jibrail's access to her soil on God's order? I really wonder. The galaxy is too big for us to be alone and Allah is too powerful beyond our imagination, indeed. God almighty.

And I'm in a heartache.
I bought a house with a RM147k loan from Bank Rakyat. The interest rate capped at 7.75%. By taking my pay and age at the moment, my loan tenure was maxed at 35yrs. My monthly installment is RM1060.
No, I am not loaded with $. Just a little,what I considered a smart planning but then I realized that I'm straying and leading a straight way to succumbing to the trap of credit cards. .
Putting that aside, my point is, the issue on my housing loan..
So, after 5 years time, my monthly installments have, well, with simple mathematics, accumulated to, rm1060 x 12mths x 5yrs = RM63,600. Sounds good. That is more than half of my original RM147k loan from the bank.
Before we go any further, I would like to explain a little on how Islamic housing financing works, based on my understanding.
1. The Bank will purchase the house at the said price, RM147k.
2. The bank will sell the house to me where, this will be a bit tricky, with an interest rate, that is based on the value of my house, at the end of my loan tenure of 35yrs.
In my agreement with the bank, it was agreed that in 35yrs' time, my house will have a value of RM300k++..so, that was house they calculated my interest rate of 7.75%...I think.
Nevertheless, even if I am wrong, no matter what explanation i get, it will not change my perception when I proceed with a little maths a bit later on...
I have been thinking of refinancing, for the second time already, to take advantage on the low blr rate currently in the market, public bank is 5.55% (blr - 1.80% for refinancing housing loan = 3.75%, pretty attractive). So I called my Bank Rakyat,
me : may i know the balance of housing loan, my ic num is ......
bank : your balance is RM300k+
me : (duh! ok fine..) may i know my settlement value...? (buat apa hang bagi figure tu.hang expect aku tanya value rm300 ribu tu sbb aku nk settle semua ka? kalau ya pun hang akan bg value lain jugak)
bank : your settlement is around RM141k.
OK, let's do another simple math.
After 5 years, I have paid a monthly installments of RM63,600 for my housing loan of RM141,000, which well, obviously looks like half of my total loan, but subtracting my settlement value from my total loan, RM147k - RM141k = RM6k....
Only 6 thousand ringgit settled after 5 years of a total of RM63,600 monthly installments ?!
RM57,600 gone under the Islamic interests??!
Almost RM60k of my pay for the past 5 yrs....wasted into their pockets....
6 ribu saja settle....
oh dear...I'm feeling heady and tensed...what a STUPID 'investment'...
What's the difference this islamic financing with ah long or ceti ....only cause the banks are registered and them ah longs aren't?
Note : I will be reading more on the complex math behind these nonsense. will update if there's any further interesting finding.

Put this aside, because my attention is directed at this male-fellow from work, who forwarded the the news in an email with a caption :
Kpd bapak2 sekalian & utk peringatan kpd bakal bapak2/mak2, tolong jaga & asuh anak2 pompuan anda btol2 supaya tak jadi mcm berita ni...
Susah nak cari pompuan yg btol2 DARA zaman la ni...btol ka?
I can't help but noticed betapa ceteknya pemikiran this male-fellow(mf) from work. why is it that many are typical so quick at pointing fingers at women and labelling them as "Susah nak cari pompuan yg btol2 DARA zaman la ni...btol ka?".
If we look at the situation above, what I can see is, ada 1 perempuan yang rosak, akan tetapi, ada 5 lelaki yang rosak. Kenapa bukan,
"Kepada bapak2 sekalian & untuk peringatan kepada bakal bapak2/mak2, tolong jaga & asuh anak2 lelaki dan perempuan anda btol2 supaya tak jadi mcm berita ni...Susah anak2 muda nak maintain DARA zaman la ni..."
Here is an article i just stumbled upon on the very same day the email on the news above was circulated.
The sexual harassment of women in the streets, schools and work places of the Arab World is driving them to cover up and confine themselves to their homes, said activists at the first-ever regional conference addressing the once taboo topic.
Activists from 17 countries across the region met in Cairo for a two-day conference ending Monday and concluded that harassment was unchecked across the region because laws don't punish it, women don't report it and the authorities ignore it.
The harassment, including groping and verbal abuse, appears to be designed to drive women out of public spaces and seems to happen regardless of what they are wearing, they said.
Amal Madbouli, who wears the conservative face veil or niqab, told AP that despite her dress, she is harassed and described how a man came after her in the streets of her neighborhood.
"He hissed at me and kept asking me if I wanted to go with him to a quieter area, and to give him my phone number," said Madbouli, a mother of two.
"This is a national security issue. I am a mother, and I want to be reassured when my daughters go out on the streets."
Statistics on harassment in the region have until recently been nonexistent, but a series of studies presented at the conference hinted at the widespread nature of the problem.
As many as 90 percent of Yemeni women say they have been harassed, while in Egypt, out of a sample of 1,000, 83 percent reported being verbally or physically abused.
A study in Lebanon reported that more than 30 percent of women said they had been harassed there.
"We are facing a phenomena that is limiting women's right to move ... and is threatening women's participation in all walks of life," said Nehad Abul Komsan, an Egyptian activist who organized the event with funding from the U.N. and the Swedish development agency.
Open discussion of the harassment issue first emerged in Egypt three years ago, after blogs gave broad publicity to amateur videos showing men assaulting women in downtown Cairo during a major Muslim holiday.
The public outcry sparked an unprecedented public acknowledgment of the problem and drove the Egyptian government to consider two draft bills addressing sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment, including verbal and physical assault, has been specifically criminalized in only half a dozen Arab countries. Most of the 22 Arab states only outlaw overtly violent acts like rape, according to a study by Abul Komsan.
Participants at the conference said men are threatened by an increasingly active female labour force, with conservatives laying the blame for harassment on women's dress and behavior.
In Syria, men from traditional homes go shopping in the market place instead of female family members to spare them harassment, said Sherifa Zuhur, a Lebanese-American academic at the conference.
Abul Komsan described how one of the victims of harassment she interviewed told her she had taken on the full-face veil to stave off the hassle.
"She told me 'I have put on the niqab. By God, what more can I do so they leave me alone,"' she said, quoting the woman.
Some even said they were reconsidering going to work or school because of the constant harassment in the streets and on public transpiration.
But even in Yemen, where nearly all women are covered from head to toe, activist Amal Basha said 90 percent of women in a published study she conducted reported harassment, specifically pinching.
"The religious leaders are always blaming the women, making them live in a constant state of fear because out there, someone is following them," she said.
If a harassment case is reported in Yemen, Basha added, traditional leaders interfere to cover it up, remove the evidence or terrorize the victim.
In Saudi Arabia, another country where women cover themselves completely and are nearly totally segregated from men in public life, women report harassment as well, according to Saudi activist Majid al-Eissa.
His organization, the National Family Safety Programme, has been helping draft a law criminalizing violence against women in the conservative kingdom, where flirting can often cross the line into outright assault.
Discussion of the law begins Tuesday.
"It will take time especially in this part of the world to absorb the gender mixture and the role each gender can play in society," he said.
"We are coping with changes (of modern life), except in our minds."
Now, evidently, even when parents educate their daughters, and the female members of the society educate themselves (thank God for the luxury of a thing called, brain aka akal), when male members of the society are left uneducated, they will still be a threat to the society, a national security issue. How embarassing.
I am beginning to think that sex being a taboo subject in muslim countries are driving the muslim men towards chaos. Aren't they supposed to be the leaders? We certainly don't want to become like the western countries or cities where sexual opportunity is in abundance, this is just inviting God's wrath upon us to happen sooner that it is already feared, no, no.
So what is wrong with muslim men? Have we really taken them for granted while growing up and concentrated more on the girls?
Here's another example of what would happen when we 'forgot' to educate little boys and what they would eventually become. This case was committed by a muslim man on a muslim boy when all the other muslims in the world were celebrating eid. And the biggest slap to muslims worldwide is, this happened in a mosque.
When the police reached the mosque, a man told them that he had come to the mosque for Zuhr prayers and that when he went to the bathroom to prepare for it, he saw traces of blood on the floor after which he saw the child behind the door. The boy’s pants had been removed.
The police, upon entering the bathroom, noticed that the child had been raped. They took the body to the General Department of Forensic Medicine and launched an investigation. Later, a Bahraini national was arrested on the suspicion of committing the crime.
He confessed to the crime during interrogation. He said he consumed alcohol late into the night on Thursday and went to the mosque to perform Eid prayers on Friday and returned home. He continued drinking alcohol and later went out to visit his friend to celebrate the festival.
What about the sons of the fathers? Have cultural rules or norms actually overcomes the teachings of Islam?
- it's OK for men to smoke but not for women. but the teachings of Islam says, anything memudaratkan is haram.
- for men being promiscuous is culturally a stud but women would be a slut. but the teachings of Islam says it is haram.
- a widowed men is hot item in the market but a widowed woman is wrongly labeled by the society.
- it is a culture for men to stare at women but not OK, no, wait, women just don't do that. and yet, the prophet said, lower your gaze and guard your modesty.
- women's circumcision is for the purpose of controlling women's libido, but circumcised men compare the size of their erected penis as they grow up. Disgusting? I think it's pathetic.
While we have pressed the cultural rules and teachings of Islam on the daughters, Have we, due to cultural norms too, neglected the teachings of Islam on the sons of the fathers?
Will we come to a point where there will not be a respectable male, someone we can look up to, admire or at least respect in our society all thanks to this cultural upbringing vs the teachings of Islam in our society?
I'm glad I can still point a few men around me worth a respect. Maybe there's hope after all.

It's rather funny considering all the things we would do, of how much time, depth and complexity of our emotions, we spend on developing and maintaining our relationship with that significant stranger.
- we spend more quality time with him/her
- if something would go wrong with that stranger, we would throw tantrums over the slightest thing or even nothing at all to other people who already love us unconditionally (unlike that stranger) how very ungrateful, spoilt little bastards we are
- our face lit up in the presence of the stranger but we'd feel indifference around those who already love us unconditionally...ready to show our tantrums because that stranger is not around us instead.
Seriously. I am fucking. sick. of the people. who terlalu sibuk, melebih-lebihkan segala boyfriend, girlfriend sampai yg simple tasks as described below pun tak boleh nak buat. in fact, tak terasa nak buat langsung. terlalu bodo. tak reti nak appreciate the unconditional love given to them by other people selain daripada orang yang asing tu. yg dia dok siboooookkkk sangat dgn masalah frequency dengan orang asing tu so boleh align dengan frequency dia baru boleh panggil boyfren/girlfren. benda yang patut focus, yang jadi tanggungjawab, tak jalan. tu lah org kata, yang dikejar tak dapat, yg dikendong keciciran. jangan sampai orang2 yang sayang hang dah tak peduli pasai hang, hang baru nak sedaq what's actually important in your bloody life.
bila boyfren tak dak, girlfren tak dak..gatai gado sikit ka, rasa mcm semua org lain bloodyfool menyemak ja dlm hidop dia. pantang tegoq sikit. tak boleh nak buat lawak sikit, mula la nk melenting. jangan jadi haram jadah mcm ni.
Bila seronok, aku cari....pasanganku
-Bila sedih, aku cari....Mak
-Bila berjaya, aku ceritakan pada....pasanganku
-Bila gagal, aku ceritakan pada....Mak
-Bila bahagia, aku peluk erat....pasanganku
-Bila berduka, aku peluk erat....Emakku
-Bila nak bercuti, aku bawa....pasanganku
-Bila sibuk, aku hantar anak ke rumah....Mak
-Bila sambut valentine.. Aku bagi hadiah pada pasanganku
-Bila sambut hari ibu...aku cuma dapat ucapkan "Selamat Hari Ibu"
-Selalu.. aku ingat pasanganku
-Selalu.. Mak ingat kat aku
-Bila-bila.. . aku akan talipon pasanganku
-Entah bila... aku nak talipon Mak
-Selalu...aku belikan hadiah untuk pasanganku
-Entah bila... aku nak belikan hadiah untuk Emak
-"Kalau kau sudah habis belajar dan berkerja...
-bolehkah kau kirim wang untuk Mak?
-Mak bukan nak banyak... lima puluh ringgit sebulan pun cukuplah".
-Berderai air mata jika kita mendengarnya. .......
-Tapi kalau Mak sudah tiada....... ...
-MAKKKKK...RINDU MAK.... RINDU SANGAT....
I've admitted, I suck at showing my affections to those i love and care about. But for those who noticed, I would shower my affections with materials. i buy things. i want them to be happy with gifts. this is the way i show my affection. something you will have to deal with. if some cannot appreciate anything that is me, then i would stop eventually, without hesitation. after all, why waste? i am not buying anyone's affection. it's your loss.

kalau aku bela sekoq dua nie, confirm extremists akan chop aku paling glamer witch or paling teruk bela hantu. (padahal aku bela burung hantu)
ada ka patut, ciptaan tuhan mcm nie...pantas ja certain people link to hantu setan iblis.
when i was younger, 1,2 year old when my dad was on training on the job, i lived alone with my mom. there was also a family of owls in the ceiling and they were within view. mom used to lift me to watch them owl family, and they were staring back at us. i can imagine words like, "there's daddy owl, mommy owl and baby owls.." hehe...and then many many years later, i found myself neatly imitating the 'owl dancing' in one situation* that got me wondered to myself, "where did/could have i learn(ed) that".. until dearest mommy reminded me of my 'bird watching' activity back when i was 1 or 2. phews. takut ada kenan owl pulak :p (ntah ntah comey plak kan)
NO, the owl dancing is not the part where it turned it's head 360 degrees nor when it swallowed a whole mice and vomited the fur+bones balls a few hours later. And these acts are the facts of owls that I revealed to my youngest sister when she was 11 or 12 i can't really recall, she was finding it hard to believe, thinking i was bluffing as michievous as i always am, although i was having my brother as my ally, she immediately googled, and voila, was it an amusing fact indeed. I was quite surprised that not many people know this. Maybe having owls as such a taboo fact makes us ignore these amusing God's creation (created for us to woo His powers), same goes with black cats, darn it my black persians were very gorgeous with thick shiny hair and bright yellow eyes, exquisitely well built! And i've had two promotions at work while with them.
So people, kurafat, is kurafat. Tolong jangan sanjung benda2 mengarut mcm nie. Tuhan cipta benda2 sekeliling kita so kita perhati, amuse with kuasa Tuhan and melahirkan rasa rendah diri, bukan cipta and spread kepercayaan khurafat. Bad things come from devil and devilish people. May God forbid.

Here they are..
I don't know if the colours of the meal has anything to do with the kitties colours, coz, pepper tak lalu sardin and bewls tak lalu ayam rebus...
If you still remember, this is regarding the death of Teoh Beng Hock, political secretary to Selangor Executive councillor, Ean Yong Hian Wah, had been summoned to the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) offices to be questioned over irregularities in the disbursement of state funds on July 15th. Next day, he was found dead on the fifth floor service corridor of the building.
So, satu Malaya excited dok kata ini musti kes bunuh coz this guy terlibat dgn pendedahan kes salah guna duit kerajaan negeri.
And then, pihak2 yg bertanggungjawab running the autopsy on this guy announce satu Malaya kata, haish! kami confirm ini kes bunuh diri.
Satu Malaya kata, ada ka kes bunuh diri mcm ni??? Gagah p bunuh diri kat bangunan pusat siasatan rasuah tu. Tak sempat2 nk balik dulu ka? Yenna dey??
The Sun news Oct 22, 2009 - A Thai pathology expert told the Teoh Beng Hock inquest yesterday that there was an 80% possibility that Teoh's death was a homicide and there is only a 20% likelihood that his death was a suicide. The expert, Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand, the director-general of the Thai Ministry of Justice's Central Institute of Forensic Science has testified that there were several injuries found on Teoh which were inconsistent with a fall from a height. They were :
1. the anal injuries, which were of a penetrating nature;
2. evidence of handle bruises which indicate physical strangulation on Teoh's neck; and
3. the fracture found on Teoh's skull was more consistent with that of a blunt force impact than transverse force from the fall.
I am no expert, and we all watch CSIs, although the 'experts' say they all mengarut, but based on the 3 arguments presented by one of the experts themselves, they appear to be very basic.
I mean, yeah, these are the things that should be checked during the autopsy, right? Any abnormalities on the body. I don't know how they dismissed the injury no1, maybe they rule that out as this guy involved in some kind of sexual activities? I mean, what makes them rule out the possibility of penetrating the guy's ass with a broomstick?
And then the injury no 2. that is so friggin obvious. How could they rule out homicide when such injury of strangulation on the neck is evident. How?? Takkan dia bunuh diri style mencekik leher sendiri sambil terjun?
And then based on the first 2 injuries, i might conclude, injury no 3 is too complicated for the Malaysian 'crime scene investigators' to see.
Or, as I mentioned earlier, are they corrupted? or just not good at their job?
The homicide evidence is 80% not 50% to be dismissed.
For muslims, yes, we believe in Qada' and Qadar. But this is not a matter of tak boleh terima someone died. Kalau asal mati saja dok mendabik dada bg alasan percaya Qada' and Qadar, anyone can plan a plain 'perfect murder'. Coz well,
"I find something fishy here."
"Hey, don't say like that. We must percaya Qada' and Qadar".
Then are you saying, "do not investigate on everything fishys?" Does an act of investigation something fishy is against our rukun iman? Logic ka? Lain la kalau mcm kes, aku tak percaya anak aku dah mati walaupun based on the genetical 'investigation' itu mmg anak hang yg mati, aku masih tetap tak percaya aku nk p cari bomoh kampung, bomoh siam, bomoh exorcist semua. Yang tu buleh tak nk suruh dia mengucap and remind her on rukun iman percaya Qada's and Qadar.
I think, just like how we have misinterpreted the words, "Insya Allah", it is the same way some extremist misinterpreted the "percaya Qada' and Qadar".
While we should promise with, "Insya Allah," and believe in Ketentuan Tuhan melalui Qada' and Qadar, God says, "I will not change a person's fate if he/she does not work on changing it".

Allah Ta’ala berfirman kepada Nabi Musa a.s. , “Sesungguhnya Aku ini Allah, tidak ada Tuhan (yang hak) selain Aku, maka sembahlah Aku dan dirikanlah shalat untuk mengingat Aku.” (Thaha: 14).
Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
Dengan nama Allah yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Pengasih
Al hamdu lillaahi rabbil 'alameen
Syukur kepada Allah, Tuhan sekalian Alam
Yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang
Maaliki yaumid Deen
Yang memiliki hari pembalasan
Iyyaaka na'abudu wa iyyaaka nasta'een
KepadaMu lah kami berlindung/menyembah dan kepadamulah kami meminta pertolongan
Ihdinas siraatal mustaqeem
Tunjukkanlah kami jalan yang benar
Siraatal ladheena an 'amta' alaihim
Jalan orang-orang yang telah Engkau beri nikmat
Ghairil maghduubi' alaihim waladaaleen
Dan bukan jalan orang-orang yang Engkau murkai
Ameen - Perkenankanlah.
Ketuhanan is Godliness. Pengakuan ketuhanan is, kita hamba, at God's mercy di dunia dan di akhirat. Maka Al-fatihah dibaca dalam solat as our pengakuan ke atas ketuhanan Allah dengan meminta perlindunganNya di dunia dan di akhirat.
Kita hamba, tapi bukan apartheid. Kita tak disebat bila ingkar, kita tak dikurung, kita makan bila kita nak walaupun tak lapaq, we sleep whenever we feel like it even when we are not sleepy or just because we are bored, we breathe, we hear, we listen, we see, we watch, we walk, we run, we spend, we waste time, when ever we feel like it. Lucky slave. And yet, have we zikir subhanallah walhamdulillah recently, for these things that we, lucky bunch of ungrateful slaves, daily do?
Kita selalu ignore benda2 basic pasal Ketuhanan, apatah lagi pasal akidah. Pastu dok bising-bising pasal kes murtad. Tak payah kelam kabut bising takdak tok guru. Ambik dulu quran, recite and read the translation dulu.
This goes for me and for all of us. May we be equipped enough to bring up our kids in these world nowadays.

Indonesia's "unlucky" president blamed for quake - just google this line and you'll find the results.
SUPERSTITIOUS Indonesians are blaming their 'unlucky' president - not shifting tectonic plates - for the latest fatal earthquakes in the disaster-prone country.
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono - popularly known by his initials SBY - has long been burdened by murmurs that he carries with him the shadow of cosmic misfortune.
A string of natural and man-made disasters since his election in 2004 - including the Indian Ocean tsunami that killed 220,000 across Asia - has seen quips that SBY stands for 'Selalu Bencana Ya', roughly meaning 'Always A Disaster'.
Macam la the person boleh control bencana alam? Helo, nama pun bencana alam. Or in other words, the wrath of God. Tuhan marah. Dengan sapa? Dengan hampa/kita lah.
Nama saja negara org islam paling ramai di dunia. Nama saja agama islam agama rasmi. Pemikiran macam christianity. President hampa tu bukannya jesus (kononnya) menanggung dosa hampa semua. Kalau bencana alam = tuhan marah, meaning tuhan marah dekat semua orang. Bukan sekoq dua saja.
Many occurrence in the Quran, something like this - if we travel the earth, we will learn on the evidence of civilizations more powerful that anything that ever existed being torn down for defying Allah's Godliness. When will we ever learn?
It may sound a bit soothing to say and thank God that malaysia, tho' surrounded with the areas/countries/lands of the Rings of Fire, it is not touched by the ring at all. but does that give us a green light to live in sin, as reported continuously in local celebrity blogs? Will we really be excluded at all?
I have read before that before Islam jatuh, there will be a time where Islam will be at its peak, with strong leaders and centre of the world. I have prayed to be in this moment, but then we learned that the time could already be in the 16th century. And given the moral decadence nowadays, it could be true.
The judgement day, it is sooner that you think.
And this statement was sent down in the Quran some 1430 years ago.

PUTRAJAYA Sept. 21 – Menteri Luar, Datuk Anifah Aman berasa pelik dengan sikap media Indonesia yang enggan menerima penjelasan akan isu tarian Pendet yang telah mencetuskan insiden anti-Malaysia di negara itu.
Sebaliknya, para pemberita Indonesia terus mengulangi isu itu di surat khabar, kata beliau kepada pemberita di rumah terbuka Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak di Seri Perdana, di sini, hari ini.
Beliau berkata, Malaysia telah pun menerima penjelasan Discovery Channel mengenai kontroversi tarian Pendet itu dan penjelasan itu juga telah disampaikan kepada kerajaan Indonesia dan mereka juga telah menerima penjelasan itu.
Beliau berkata, Malaysia tidak pernah mengakui tarian Pendet itu adalah tarian Malaysia dan ianya adalah kesilapan pihak Discovery Channel.
Anifah berkata beliau telah membuat penjelasan dalam pertemuan dengan rakan sejawat dari Indonesia, Hassan Wirajuda pada Khamis lalu.
Beliau berharap selepas pertemuan itu, yang telah berjalan dengan baik, segala masalah yang dihadapi oleh kedua-dua negara akan dapat diselesaikan dalam cara yang terbaik.
“Saya telah perjelaskan dalam sidang akhbar (di Indonesia) bahawa Malaysia tidak ada masalah dengan Indonesia,” katanya.
Pertemuan dengan Hassan Wirajuda itu adalah berikutan insiden anti-Malaysia dan laporan media yang negatif terhadap Malaysia di republik berkenaan.
Keterlaluan tak i nk kata depa ni mmg tak guna. agak keterlaluan maybe. but dari dulu sampai sekarang mmg jahat. masa msia dapat independence dulu depa punya la hasad dengki buat perang saraf jadi standard communist. punya la jahat. geng pecah rumah pun depa. before this, 10yrs ago, it was still safe to walk here and there in our country, masuk saja bangsa nie since 1990's, dok dlm rumah sendiri pun tak selamat. pastu, ofcoz, pemuda malaysia pun dgn pantas belajaq benda2 pelik depa nie.
yes, dalam semua bangsa, tak semua baik and tak semua jahat. i may begin the explore that there is a possibility that there could be a good jew out there. but when we mention jewish people, we would always link them with men slaughtering of the muslims. they are always bad. we would (we should, we ought to) as possible as we can, stay away from anything that is linked to the jews or anything that's directly funding the bullets and artillery of the jewish wars against the muslims (McDonald's and Starbucks, people, tak mati pun kalau tak makan benda2 nie, but kita yg dok tolong fund bullet utk yahudi belasah org islam. % of the profits mesti kena bg kat "mr mcdonald's", ha situ la duit kita dok belasah burger and coffee depa p).
back to what I was saying, when we mention bangsa indonesia...what would we usually associate them with? while we take my auntie's maids to be part of the families, salam, sembang, gelak, bagi duit raya etc, and tho' their artistes make better music than us malaysians, i'd always associate the rest with 'kekacauan', ruckus, lost, extreme. It's very pitiful and may God forbid, with all the sinful lifestyle we, the leaders and people, post here in our home country will we become like them. And now, with their 'much ado about nothing' attitude over the, i believe, deliberate error by the discovery channel to provoke tension between malaysia and indonesia makes them more pathetic and sickening. While they should be targeting the discovery channel, the folks on the famous tv company now is sitting back and watching the ruckus they has managed to create in the south east of asia. mmg bangsa indonesia ni dungu. melayu, islam jatuh sbb adanya bangsa2 dungu mcm nie lah. sama mcm negara2 arab yg bodoh lagi dungu. bergaduh sesama depa while europe and US bersatu in economy, military and what not. Jangan kita pun jadi bodoh dan dungu sama sudah. So far, Malaysia jarang sekali melenting or jadi mcm cili padi whenever yahudi tak guna like discovery channel and George Soros cuba provoke. Nasib baik kita tak ambik IMF. kalau tak jadi mcm indonesia. as i said many times before, choose the leader that would cause us less damage. Yes, pemuda UMNO corrupt, pilih leader yang sah2 dibuktikan rasuah but dapat warning saja becoz dia kroni PM. tapi, apa akan jadi kalau kita pilih leader yang nk ambik IMF dulu tu? makan batu and pasiaq la anak2 kita. takdak la kawen hantaran sampai 7,8 ribu. Macam Tuhan dah cakap dlm Quran, "lelaki boleh kawen 2, 3 or 4, dgn syarat hampa berlaku adil. tapi, hampa tak mampu, Aku lah yang maha adil" still ramai yg choose nk kawen lebih dari 1. Try la mcm mana pun, kita takkan boleh berlaku adil. Try la mcm mana pun, xdak pemimpin se-ideal Nabi. So, i would certainly choose pemimpin that would cause me less damage. Aku xmau mkn batu dan pasiaq, jadi hamba america and yahudi, silap2 boleh jadi mcm iraq. Yes, Saddam was hamba America who received military aids to fight against other Arab nations, until he went wild and against his boss, and look what has happened to him, to the country..forever be hamba yahudi, they will.

Once upon a time...
...you can still see the bell....
Do read. Recommended.
" BUKIT MERTAJAM - Pusat Urus Zakat (PUZ) Pulau Pinang mengutip RM33.5 juta bagi pelbagai jenis zakat, antara Januari hingga 15 Disember lalu. Pengurus Besarnya, Dr Azman Abdul Samat, berkata jumlah itu dijangka mampu mengatasi keseluruhan kutipan tahun lalu RM34.3 juta. "Kita optimis mampu mengatasi jumlah zakat tahun lalu berikutan nilai perbezaan hanya RM800,000 saja. Jadi, mereka yang belum berzakat digalak berbuat demikian," katanya.
Tak faham la apa yg dibangga-banggakan sangat dgn kutipan juta-juta tu, as if org2 PUZ tu yang membanting tulang bermandi peluh and talking as if itu duit 'keuntungan company' depa. kenapa? Duit2 tu org2 Islam yg berkesedaran utk menunaikan rukun islam depa and it just so happens that PUZ is a Pusat Urus Zakat. If dapat duit juta-juta, jangan dok bangga-bangga selagi Malaysia tak bebas fakir miskin. What they should have done is do more kempen kesedaran utk org2 Islam lain. Lagi bagus kalau kami boleh nampak mcm mana fakir2 miskin ni improve their lives. We would like to know if PUZ able to teach a man to fish, so he can fish by himself for the rest of his life. We don't want to hear u boasting on how much money people have assigned you to do your job. That is not your money.

Have we ever enjoyed buying, giving things unconditionally to other people only to find out the action soon carries lesser meaning on the receiving end?
Of course. Sooner or later it will become less significant. There would be less appreciation on the receiving end. The value depreciates. Like, ada takdak sama saja.
Heck, even an unconditional love bears an Anakku Sazali.
At some point when people don't appreciate it they way they use to, u just need to stop giving.
If you're such a philanthropist and you can't help it, find someone else to spoil.
They say be careful what you give. I'd like to say, be careful on how frequent you give. Both has its own undesirable effects.
Too Much of Something is bad enough,
But something's coming over me to make me wonder,
Too Much of nothing is just as tough,
I need to know the way to feel to keep me satisfied

There is a saying that goes, "It takes a good friend to share your sorrows but a greater friend to share your happiness."
It may sound ridiculous, but some folks just can't be happy at their friend's successes. Some friends are only there for each other when they share the same plight(hardship) and instead of feeling genuinely happy for their friend when they find success, they feel bitterness and jealousy.
Don't be someone that's only in for complaining about life. When your friend hits it big - celebrate with them. When they are interviewing for a new job - root for them. When they want to find new love - be gracious and supportive when they find it.
Now, where do you stand with your friends?
There is nothing better in the world than having people who support and care about you. Go out of your way to show your support for your friend.
Don't visit me when I'm sick. Don't even visit me on calamity events. I will come to you. I know I have plenty of friends who would listen to me. In fact, from the article above, I now know that I can even seek sympathy from anyone even those who hold grudges on me. Don't come to me then.
But be there when I am happy. Celebrate with me when I succeed at something. Remind me of the good things I could have done if I won some prize money. Because good things are best shared. Don't give me a cold shoulder when I succeed at something. Don't envy me if (you/other people find) I'm smart, witty or intelligent. Don't hold grudges over my few abilities and hit me with low remarks and pass it as a joke. We all believe in Qada' and Qadar. Something that looks good on me may not be for you. I twist and turn in restless sleeps because my brain won't give it a rest but a 6-hour sleep is already good for you. Good things are tests from God. Will we use the gifts from God on the good path?
Don't envy me if (you find) I'm smart, witty or intelligent. I'm not asking anyone to keep up with me. Like you, I do see other people as smarter than me, and like you, I don't usually label myself as one and there are those who don't see me as smart as you thought I was. Don't hold your grudge if I won an argument. It usually is never an argument and it is always about finding the truth. Don't hit it on me if you think I'm right. And especially, don't hit it on me if you're frustrated with your life. In fact, try not to hit on anyone at all.
Do unto others as you want others to do unto you.
I love Jusco's Pearl magazine. Worth a read. And it's free.

"Jadi bukankah ketentuan syurga atau neraka itu hak mutlak Allah SWT? Bagaimana Nik Abdul Aziz boleh keluarkan kenyataan begitu, jangan ikut sedap otak sendiri," tegasnya.
kenapa la org boleh taksub sgt dgn politik. bukan ka sifat taksub tu dilarang? tsk.
- 22 August 2009 ; Adakah pemimpin PKR masuk syurga?
''Kalau benar Islam yang dibawa UMNO tidak membawa ke syurga, kita nak minta Nik Aziz keluar fatwa bagaimana pula perjuangan PKR yang tidak sama sekali dilandaskan atas perjuangan Islam.
''Adakah pemimpin PKR seperti (Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim akan masuk syurga? Bagaimana pula Wan Azizah? Begitu juga dengan Khalid Ibrahim dan Azmin Ali. Adakah mereka semua ini akan masuk syurga," katanya.
Nik Aziz Isnin lalu mengeluarkan kenyataan bahawa penyokong UMNO tidak akan masuk syurga kerana parti itu mengamalkan ajaran Islam palsu.
UMNO tak ajaq aku sembah benda lain selain Allah. So far, kerajaan sekarang telah menyediakan kemudahan beragama untuk aku (and kita semua) - kemudahan sembahyang di merata-rata (highway, masjid2, the pavillion), food chains yg halal (JAKIM), tadarus al-quran and ceramah etc on TV (agama lain takdak tau), azan yg bergema (di S'pore tak boleh azan). The rest on rukun islam and rukun iman is up to each of us la.
About hukum hudud, PKR and DAP dah setuju ka in the first place? Ingat DAP nk bagi hampa memerintah ka kalau pakatan hampa menang?
- 22 August 2009 - Isu Syurga:Penjelasan Nik Aziz
Mursyidul Am Pas, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat hari ini menjelaskan mengenai hujahnya semalam yang mempertikaikan keputusan Jawatankuasa Muzakarah Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan bahawa ketentuan memasuki syurga atau neraka adalah hak Allah sepenuhnya.
Kenapa dok sibuk pasal syurga or neraka..kenapa tak sibuk pikiaq pasal pembangunan ummah, crime rates and of course, amal ibadat, sedekah and ilmu yg kita bg kat org lain? Kenapa sibuk pasal urusan Tuhan? Kita akan jadi para juri ka? Nabi2 dan rasul2 pun bukan juri kat akhirat nnt. Kenapa ada yg berlagak nk set group sapa masuk syurga sapa masuk neraka?
We are wasting time. We are wasting a lot of time and energy. This is such an insult to our well being.

because, most the time..it is so darn hot here in this country...well, maybe not in some parts of the country..let's say..cameron and genting highlands, fraser's hill or at least Taiping..the wet-est place in M'sia. Well, the place where I'm staying and some 200km radius around it is confirmed hot.
I go out for lunch, every-day. it is my socializing session and the highlight of the day and we would walk under the scorching hot sun, most of the time with an umbrella above our head, climbing the bloody hill up to our office. it would be a near-cramp situation inside the elevator and it is so darn uncomfortable.
sweaty shirts and that uncomfortable feeling of the heat of the sweat escaping the pores thru the threads of our dampen shirts and jeans...suddenly the materials seem to be too thick and you'd feel like taking it all off and just sit on the floor under a blasting fan. That would be as devastating as wishing and hoping for something so near yet so far a way...especially when the image of your bedroom is just a 5 minutes drive away..so very tempting.
So i would usually dream of something else instead, just to take the edge of the utmost discomfort of the process of the after effect of walking under the scorching hot sun for 10 minutes...something so far fetched so i wouldn't be too frustrated at not being able to reach for it.
so each time i walked thru the scan-in turnstile, i have always hoped to have some kind special ability to transfer the 70% of the heat of my body thru my pores onto the cold metal turnstile and in return absorb the cool charges off the metal (imagine the transfer flow of the -ve and +ve ions at the interaction of two objects).
and secondly, i'd imagine a closed chamber of cooling gas of nitrogen or CO2 or whatever gasses that are feeding the air conditions with cool air stronger and windy-er than the office temperature, that would be activated as soon as i stepped my feet inside it. it would definitely send down the chill from the based of my hair follicles down thru every tiny pores under my feet. What a bliss.
(They say the best inventions are derived from needs...which are derived from problems...)
And soon, we will always notice some new spots of pigmentation and uneven skin surface on our faces...and we'd buy some expensive skin products to make them go away.
While in other parts of the planet, people die of heat waves.
"Bagaimana kamu masih boleh melakukan maksiat sedangkan kamu tak dapat bertahan dengan panasnya terik matahari Ku." hadis Qudsi. Referring to a received mail :
Ketika Allah menjadikan Jahannam, maka dinyalakan selama seribu tahun, sehingga merah, kemudian dilanjutkan seribu tahun sehingga putih, kemudian seribu tahun sehingga hitam, maka ia hitam gelap, tidak pernah padam nyala dan baranya. Demi Allah yg mengutus engkau dengan hak, andaikan terbuka sebesar lubang jarum nescaya akan dapat membakar penduduk dunia semuanya kerana panasnya.
Demi Allah yg mengutus engkau dengan hak, andaikan satu baju ahli neraka itu digantung di antara langit dan bumi nescaya akan mati penduduk bumi kerana panas dan basinya.
Demi Allah yg mengutus engkau dengan hak, andaikan satu pergelangan dari rantai yg disebut dalam Al-Quran itu diletakkan di atas bukit, nescaya akan cair sampai ke bawah
bumi yg ke tujuh.
Demi Allah yg mengutus engkau dengan hak, andaikan seorang di hujung barat tersiksa, nescaya akan terbakar orang-orang yang di hujung timur kerana sangat panasnya, Jahannam itu sangat dalam dan perhiasannya besi dan minumannya air panas campur nanah dan pakaiannya potongan-potongan api.
Api neraka itu ada tujuh pintu, tiap-tiap pintu ada bahagiannya yang tertentu dari orang laki-laki dan perempuan. Pintu yang selalu terbuka, setengahnya di bawah dari lainnya, dari pintu ke pintu jarak perjalanan 70,000 tahun, tiap pintu lebih panas dari yang lain 70 kali ganda.' (nota kefahaman: iaitu yg lebih bawah lebih panas)
Di dalamnya pintu ke7, paling bawah, orang-orang yg berdosa besar dari ummat Muhammad yg sampai mati belum sempat bertaubat.
"Bagaimana kamu masih boleh melakukan maksiat sedangkan kamu tak dapat bertahan dengan panasnya terik matahari Ku."

I, for instance love the feeling of unwrapping my birthday gifts. Especially when it is accompanied with a surprise birthday party...such a pleasant feeling of happiness, excitement and appreciated.
And a promotion at work is also right there at the top. Let alone a bonus!
We'd hope for a promotion at work. We'd anticipate a surprise birthday party..planned by other people for us..
Don't we just love a pleasant surprise... ;)
If we love it so much, have we ever tried to ponder on the possibility of wishing and hoping for a more pleasant surprise from God the almighty? God has promised and we have always heard, "janji Allah itu benar.." Allah is true to his words.
Sesiapa yang bertakwa kepada Allah (dengan mengerjakan suruhanNya dan meninggalkan laranganNya), nescaya Allah akan mengadakan baginya jalan keluar (dari segala perkara yang menyusahkannya), (2) Serta memberinya rezeki dari jalan yang tidak terlintas di hatinya dan (Ingatlah), sesiapa berserah diri bulat-bulat kepada Allah, maka Allah cukuplah baginya (untuk menolong dan menyelamatkannya). Sesungguhnya Allah tetap melakukan segala perkara yang dikehendakiNya. Allah telahpun menentukan kadar dan masa bagi berlakunya tiap-tiap sesuatu. (3). Surah 65 - At-Talaq Ayat 2-3/Ayat Seribu Dinar.
So, sit back, keep your faith and pray,
Rabbana atina fid-dun-ya hasanah, wa fil 'aa-khirati hasanatan waqinaa 'adhaban-nar
Tuhanku, kurniakanlah aku kebaikan di dunia dan di akhirat, dan selamatkanlah kami dari siksaan api neraka.
Our Lord! Grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the chastisement of the fire.
A reminder for me too.

I have something to say that is a total opposite of the current issue.
I once had a malay supervisor who stabbed me on my back and a change to a Chinese supervisor after that recognized me professionally and pushed me for promotion.
And worse, tho' not many got thru to my skin, I have had been on the receiving end of some hurtful words being uttered by my fellow malays.
I knew a malay who was ready to apologize to another non-malay over something that is unnecessary because she is right (thus innocent) and the non-malay is just making a big fuss and gossips, probably because she was too embarassed after being caught of doing something 'wrong'...but, when the malay uttered some hurtful words to another malay, don't even bother to 'ready to apologize'. period.
I also once knew a malay who enjoyed calling other malays names based on their physicals just for his amusement, even at public eating places where he happened to hang around with his friends and anyone of us happened to pass by.
'Doraemon, 'kengkang' or 'panjang' are not the kind of names I would appreciate being called upon. And having been on the receiving end of these names calling, it is fair that I do not indulge on seeking amusement on other people's conditions as well as I knew that this, annoying and can be hurtful.
I also know that there is a malay who sold another malay to a group of non-malays over a blog thread which contains a statement that goes something like this, "....bising dengan bahasa urdu depa..." with the sole, sincere intention of creating a racial riffs between my fellow malay and the non-malays (what else??).
If the non-malays are smart, they should have realized that the bast*** is the person who forwarded the blog thread to be printed by them non-malays. This bast*** is the one who should be exposed to all. The bast*** is the one who should be dunk in the toilet. I hope that this she-bast*** is reading this. Don't ever once think that we don't know who you are.
Urdu is a very popular language of the subcontinent , second only in the number of speakers to Hindi.
I have been warned and told of stories of how ugly a workplace can be amongst the different races living under one roof, one management. However, the riffs are often clearer within the one race itself. Oh, people gossiping...boycotting....how annoying...!
Anyways, with respect to the issues on the newspaper, here's,
an interesting view on racism.
Everyone of us is somewhat a racist.
Everyone of us have got to embrace this...jangan malu-malu in fact..
I agree with writer, I don't hate or curse you because of the colour of your skin. Is it usually because of your actions.
I have no issues sitting together for meals, carpooling, sitting side by side, with other races. I have so far, never justified any injustice put upon me by the management of where i'm working at by the colour of my bosses' skin.
I believe in trying our best to put - not taking relationships for granted and respect - in place of our actions. Do not take respect for granted just because I am another malay just like you or because we are friends or because we are family.
Karma itu wujud, becareful.
With that, I would like to take this mood, also with the arrival of our special month, Ramadhan, to seek apology on my actions and words especially that might have hurt or scratched anyone involved, my words above and in some threads in this blog may also be a reflection of my own actions.
It's the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." It is the ultimate norm of high morality in our culture. Sure there are other morals by which we live, but this one phrase embodies our most cherished value: that we should treat people as we would like to be treated.

It really is not impossible if a person only lives on his/her surrounding of boyfriends/girlfriends fever, akademi fantasia/1 in a million fever, and all other bimbo-istic fevers.

Karpal sedition trial: Reporter says she does not know Karpal's political party
By YENG AI CHUN
KUALA LUMPUR: There was a sense of disbelief in court Friday morning when a reporter said she did not know the political party which Karpal Singh belonged to.
RTM reporter Eliani Mazlan, 26, who took the witness stand on the third day of Karpal’s sedition trial, during cross-examination by Jagdeep Singh Deo.
Jagdeep: Do you know which party is Karpal Singh from?
Eliani : I am not sure.
Karpal who was also present, could not help smiling in amusement when she said that.
Jagdeep then proceeded to ask her if she was a voter. She said she was.
Jagdeep turned to the court and said “You cannot be a Penangnite,” drawing laughter from everyone. Karpal was alleged to have uttered seditious words against the Sultan of Perak at his legal firm in Jalan Pudu Lama between 12pm and 12.30pm on Feb 6.
Earlier, Jagdeep asked Eliani if she knew who Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was.
She replied that he was PKR president.
Jagdeep: Do you know PKR is part of a bigger party?
Eliani: I am not sure.
Jagdeep: Have you heard of Pakatan Rakyat? There are other component parties in Pakatan Rakyat. Do you remember?
Jagdeep: There is PKR, DAP and PAS. That is Pakatan Rakyat. You do remember that Pakatan Rakyat won five states in the previous general election and there was a political tsunami. Agree?
Jagdeep pointed out that even though Karpal and Anwar are from the same party, Karpal has his own views about party hopping.
Jagdeep: So we can summarise that Karpal is not one who behaves personally but is with principles.
Eliani: I am not sure.
Jagdeep: I would suggest that is the reality of Karpal.
The witness who was only two months into her job when she went for the media conference in Feb, also told the court that she was not sure of the term ultra vires.
During the barrage of questions, Jagdeep asked her if she was sure Karpal said he would sue the Sultan.
Jagdeep: At page four, paragraph two of the video transcript, Karpal said: “In fact, I’ve stated very clearly that ‘we’ will sue the Sultan together with the new State Government as defendants if they persist. Are you sure? Karpal said he would sue the Sultan? What does it say?
Jagdeep: It is not I.
Eliani: But it could mean himself.
Jagdeep: We could mean I? Is that what you are trying to say? What was said in the transcript?
Jagdeep: So you agree that ‘we’ is not ‘I’?
Jagdeep: You agree that your understanding is completely a misunderstanding?
Eliani: I am not sure.
The trial continues later Friday in the afternoon 2.45pm.

just to live.
no, pills won't burn your fat or your cholesterol.
nor any type of garments..
or creams... or drinks..
it doesn't work like that.
it just, does not work like that.
you want to make a child, you've got to have an egg and a sperm.
you want life, exercise is what you do.
When are we going to realize. A bloody diet alone will never work.!
There's only one solution as in there is only one religion.
EXERCISE. FULL STOP.
all of us, when talking to each other, have been wondering...how could this possibly be...what could have possibly trigger this..on many of us at the same time...but when think of it, we can't recall any emotional stress or pressure at the moment...it's been quite puzzling...tho still, we don't usually pressure ourselves about it..it may make it worse..
and then, suddenly, today, about 10minutes ago, it occurred to me that all of us are currently having the same period at the moment, and it all became clear to me that, the women are having the same condition, that is highly likely have triggered some stress in some kind of way even without us realizing it..
and that is..i think the women would agree that the period cycle going haywire situation we are all currently facing at the same time as of now is a symptom of the pressure to ganti puasa last minute before the actual bulan puasa...
and it all make sense now...
silently, i really hope this is the case...and things will be much better during the bulan puasa itself..

"Perempuan takkan boleh berdiri sama tinggi dengan lelaki. Darjat lelaki lebih tinggi dari wanita."
How it annoy me so much with some of these women who can't wait to submit themselves to their men. Surrender their mind and soul. Suddenly their life, their mind, their soul are defined by having their men, without which, they feel incomplete. Forgotten they have, that
The prophet Muhammad pbuh was sent to raise the status of women. Men and women are made in justice, with respect of each other's status in Islam. The difference between the two is their responsibilities.
But then again, speaking of darjat can be quite controversial. But much ado about darjat amongst us humans, might as well we spent the time arguing on improving our darjat in God's eyes instead. Just do what must and should be done and as God has promised, you should be fine. What is there to achieve when we hail our men too high when all of us are sinned slaves of God actually. Lain la kalau laki hang disebut as bersifat maksum oleh Tuhan kan.
Respect each other's responsibilities and most of all, appreciate them.
I remember having injured my bicep after a few rounds of long lobs strokes with the state coach. It really hurt. And I have a doubles semi final later. My final game of the year, of the tournament. And my coach was not helping at all.
I remember sitting in the middle of the big hall of some 16 busy badminton courts. I prayed silently...i tried to make a deal with God with the exchange of my pain. I prayed long, i prayed hard.
And the pain disappeared 10 minutes later.
I moved, i swinged, trying to feel for any visible pain. It was just gone. Like it was never there before. I was somewhat perplexed. My heart was unrest.
So i played my last game, and lost, but i didn't feel the game. My mind was more occupied of something else. Some that had just happened.
It was 1992. That was the last real tournament of my life.
I was, of course, very young, but now I know, I, as a slave, am in no place to strike a deal with God.
It was a few years after that. Something happened. Sad news. Everyone was young, I was young.. but old enough to begin to learn to accept sad news.
So I prayed..long and hard..I prayed, I want to stay single to take care of my parents. I understand that parents would lose their rights on their daughter once she's tied. Their well being matters most to me. Make me strong to care for them. Make me able to. They raised me. I can never repay that. The least I can do is care for them, even only when, they don't have anyone else to go to. Even when I am their last resort. I just can't be selfish by tie-ing myself, my life to a stranger.
Maybe when we're younger, we're less sinned. We're more innocent. It is much easier to get your prayers through the thick and thin of your sins. But God, being the most Gracious, all I had to do, is ask.
Ask, that is our faith for the God-liness of Allah. Believing that He has the power above all to grant all that we desire. But in the end, tho, pray for what's best for us.
God, forgive me for my ignorance.
"Wahai Tuhanku, bimbinglah aku untuk selalu bersyukur atas kenikmatan yang Engkau berikan kepadaku, juga kepada kedua orang tuaku dan agar aku melakukan amal yang Engkau redhai, dan masukkanlah aku ke dalam rahmat-Mu bersama hamba-Mu yang soleh." Surah An-Naml (Semut) 19.
p/s : I hate it when they moved to SP. I used to bring them ole-ole from work every evening. It has always meant something to me.
For those whom are still single, don't fret, don't push, have faith, maybe you are meant to do something else, maybe just for the meantime.
For those who asked why I am not married with one-kind of tone and muka yang sengaja berkerut-kerut like you are above everyone else, have some faith, if it was meant to be then it would have definitely happened already. It's Qada' and Qadar,the 6th fundamental of faith.

It has to have its unique significant action scene.
1. Fox character scooping Mr Tumnus in her sports car in Wanted.
2. Fox's 90deg body bending at waist level with her "ahh..!" on the car chasing and train ride flicks.
3. Trinity's 'jumping kick'. Oh yeah. Damn kewl.
4. Neo's bullet dodge body bending.
I do not enjoy Die Hard and Terminator in particular. There is too much guns pumping and explosions with no significant scene worth remembrance.
The helicopter scene was kewl in the Transformers 1. Everyone remembers the bad cop car. Too kool. Too kool.
And Optimus vs one of the bad guys on the high way, transforming and 'flying' slo-mo...too damn kool..too damn kool...
The Sam on top of the building scene...Megatron was kool..
and then there's the Transformers 2..
I'd remember the bad-cat Decepticon..
and Optimus transforming in the hangar..but still a bit to fast to give that effect..
and then....cricket sounds...i mean i love and enjoy the movie and all but i can't effectively recall other scenes. Someone to refresh me would be helpful.
Yea, the fighting scene in the forest was good but i can't help but notice that 'kool' effect was just not there...
And the scene in the dessert...tsk..the movies gets you tired due to the actions and anticipation, but at the end of it, i couldn't help to feel like something is missing...that kick, that umph..i guess lacks the kool factor..
It's called Transformers so, I was expecting more dramatic transformation scene..even during fighting (or especially during fighting) would be something unique..something significant worth remembrance. That would be the something kool that I'd fluently recall at any moment...
p/s : 1 . harry potter 6 is too simple...I'm dissatisfied..I'm reading the book now..
2. G.I Joe coming soon - can't wait !

The Chinese (China-ese) can't pronounce Ryan Giggs properly...(giggle...giggle...) they called him, "Lion Gigger" ....
That gave a really different meaning. I can't think or imagine what other words would be..shees...mainly because i don't speak their language.
When I say God is being fair, I meant, China is fast becoming an economic giant in today's world. Around 5 or 6 years back, many multinational companies (MNC) shift their investments in Malaysia and moved to China, where, as we know the labour costs is cheaper and with proper quality control, they'd produce the same quality as they do in Malaysia.
A few years after than, even the Chinese starts investing out of their country..in simple word, it means, they are rich, have done enough investment in their own country, and ready to venture out. If I am not mistaken, we borrowed money from them Chinese for either the Penang Bridge expansion or the second bridge. Correct me if I'm wrong.
However, considering Singapore's labour costs is as high as many 1st world countries, Malaysia is still the destination of choice for foreign companies investments over China, due to the fact that English is our second language. Unlike the China-ese, we pronounce, Ryan Giggs, as it is. Phew. Imagined if there is no communication barrier between the China-ese and foreign investors. What will be left of us? God is fair.
Now that we are seeing it that way, isn't it ironic that we are controversially 'moving backward' by teaching those crucial subjects, Science stream subjects and Mathematics in Bahasa instead of English?
Seriously, my parents were educated in an English medium schools back in the 60s, not only that I am thankful for that as we were introduced to this language at an early age, but it is also about self empowerment of having to master more than one language. In fact, if you asked me, I think every student should learn Tamil and Mandarin in schools. Seriously, why not?
And as a matter of fact, my parents and my family are more malay than those who make such a big fuss about teaching these subjects in English. We know our history, we speak malay, we eat with our hands, we have tea with banana/jackfruit/potatoe fritters but no such thing as hi-tea with cakes and puffs and we can definitely curse in malay.
Bahasa Malaysia is a Bahasa Kebangsaan, we have made it compulsory to further our studies in higher education by passing with highest marks in written and oral exams. But speaking of moving forward, English is the worldwide communication language, where books, reference items, conventions are made widely available in this language. We want to move forward!
Or...there is a 'conspiracy' to make certain people rich by granting these certain people with the translation or printing rights of text books and reference materials into Bahasa?
Hm, one may never know.
I have heard of a story of a certain individual who were granted the rights to import and distribute african coffee beans to the local market and made a fortune out of it. Of course he could if he were the only or among a few individuals with the 'AP' certificates.

F1 scene :
1. Ferrari - Driver Filipe Massa(1st runner up 2008 champion behind Lewis Hamilton) was injured. details. The funny thing is, they have to call back on Michael Schumacher to replace him. The former champion retired in 2006. Tho I've never seen this before but I'm kinda excited. haha
2. Honda - no more in 2009 race. They pull out of the racing scene due to the economic recession. The manager, Ross Brawn baught the team and rename it to Brawn GP. Honda former main driver now Brawn's, Jenson Button, I don't know, somehow, the situation struck something in him and he went on to win 6 championship races out of 10 races so far this year, looks like he was playing the fool during the previous years championships.
3. News as of today...BWM is pulling out of the race after the 2009 season is over...and rumour is saying that the next team will be TOYOTA...
1. Wimbledon final !! Roger Federer vs Andy Roddick...what an epic..God, the anticipation was killing me. They played up to the maximum sets of tennis, and Fed could not, and i mean, just could not break Rod's servis. And when he finally did, he won it at a record of the longest set ever for men's championship, 16-14. The tournament marked his WTA spot back to no1, passing Nadal and most of all, his 15th grand slam win, passing the 14 grand slam titles mark he just shared with Pete Sampras after the French open 2009. Yesterday NST, Pete was saying, he thought he had set a record whom he thought he would never see anyone breaking, but alas, records are made to be broken. It did 7 yrs after that. There's still another grand slam to come, US Open.
2. Nadal was injured, excluded himself from the French and Wimbledon Opens. Expected to return for US Open, Aug 31st-Sept 13th.
3. Tho winning 2 grand slams this 2009 season (Aus and Wimbledon), Serena Williams still is not able to grab the WTA no 1 spot from Dinara Safina, who still is the no 1 without winning any grand slams so far. I find this weird. I am intrigued with their judgement. In fact, Serena is too.
where can i begin...
1. Man U lost to Barcelona in my they-played-like-a-bunch-of-monkeys thread.
2. Christiano Ronaldo moved from Man U to Real Madrid with a world record transfer of 80mil pound..crazy people. He is a Nike ambassador but Real is endorsed with Adidas. That should be interesting. Man U did not 'buy' anyone significant but 'hired' Owen who was clubless after the end of last season. Manchester City is on a spending spree...Liverpool, Chealsea and Arsenal are saying that without Ronaldo, they now have a definite chance at the premier league...(he is that good...)
I am definitely anticipating the new season in August.
I would love to follow NBAs but it's on weekday mornings...12hours different from here to New York dats why.
Any other sporting events worth to follow?
