Heartbreak...

It was a heartbreaking news and it still is.

First, it was Gaza. The slaughtering is happening and there is no hint that it will end anytime soon.

Then, the MH17. I still cry now and then, wherever I think of the victims and their families. How one of them used to cross path with me some 30 years back.

Power play in this life will not last forever...

I just do not understand. This point of view is absolutely ridiculous. Unless we are an atheist, all of us should be believing in God. Then, why certain quarters act as if they are the God. They thought they are so powerful that they could blind the One and off course,  the people. They are not cheating God, they are cheating themselves. I wish the will come to their senses one fine day before its too late.

Power can only last a lifetime but there are life after death. Do they think they could persuade Him as they do here, in this life? Yes, there are 30 million individuals that could be the witnesses in front of Him. But then again, forget people. The witnesses could be the angels who are with us 24/7. Or our own body. Remember,  although no one have ever come back from death but death is not a myth.

Good luck!!!

These two weeks are examination weeks for year 1. Both students and lecturers are affected during this time. The students are busying themselves preparing for the papers,  while the lecturers are busy marking the papers. All have to be out for a school board meeting this coming Thursday. I am now eagerly waiting for the results so that the students eligible for the distinction viva session could be identified.

I hope for the best!

Sayonara beautiful voice...

Malaysia is mourning for her loss of yet another beautiful voice.

God has gave her a long life as a singer with a series of ups and downs. She had a lengthy list of admirers and fan but not without hatters. But then again, that was an expected way of life of a celebrity.

As a human being, she sometimes made headlines for a wrong reason. But, those attitudes mean she was behaving as a normal individual. Who are we to be a judge of characters?

I respect her the most when she decided to sent her only son to study on religion and away from the limelight. For me, that was the best a celebrity mother could do for her child, although the price that they need to pay was to live separately for many years.

May her soul be at peace. Good bye for now, Sharifah Aini.

From Him we come, to Him we will go back eventually.

She had me

I cannot be thankful enough for having her. She has been living with me for three months now.

Initially,  I was quite reluctant to be close to her,  but she invades my heart effortlessly.

Yes, my life may have been a little bit 'busy' from its flawless schedule. Nevertheless,  it is becoming much richer than it used to be. There is always something to look forward at the end of the day. Her antics make all my troubles fly away because she has made it a rule that after works, it is all about her.

I guess by now she must have known that she had me, wrapped around her claws.

Maru, my smokes coloured cat.

Ramadhan in Malaysia

Ramadhan is here. Tomorrow is the day when all Muslim start fasting. Non-muslim may assumed that this fasting is a difficult task to be performed. Nevertheless, it is not.

In Malaysia, it is like a month of festival ending with an eid. You may find food sold at a stall only during this month. And that too at special 'pasar ramadhan', a place like like market but open early to sell food for breaking fast. Hotels will come out with special buffet offer just for breaking fast. In Kelantan, this is the time where we can find many variety of colek. I will upload a picture of colek if I manage to have one.

But then again, I am not able to go back to my hometown to breaking fast with my mother. All due to the Phase 1 Professional Exam which starts tomorrow. I know she must be sad to be alone. I am sorry but I wish I could make it up soon. I planning to go home for few days to spend some quality time with her.

Lastly, i wish Happy Ramadhan to all Muslims. This is another chances to do good deeds.

I missed you already

A friend who is also a colleague and probably more like a big sister is going to move to Kuantan in the end of July, which means that she will be leaving USM as well. She is leaving a big hole in my life in PPSG and in Kelantan, and need a lot of courage to fill it up.

As I was from Kedah with no relative in Kota Bharu, she was the first friend who I met when I started working in PPSG. And she was the one who introduced me to Ina, my best friend. During this 12 years, many things had happened. We are friends, we quarrelled, we make up. She went for her PhD. I went for mine. She came back before I came back. We did what friend does and it is now coming to the other end of our friendship. It is not the end, end. The end here means that we are not going to see each other as much as we wish because Kuantan and Kota Bharu is like 6 hours drive.

The pain is like a gentle stroke of a pin into my heart. I don't know where to point the pain is, but I know my heart is crying.
