Rumah Nur Hikmah

Assalamualaikum everyone..
I have always wanted to share this video with u all.. but too bad YouTube blocked this one due to copyrights issues. :(
2 years ago (27th January 2009), I went to this orphanage to take a look at the condition and meet the kids there.

It was terrible. They eat in trays ...but the food is not enough. Even if they are still hungry, they are not supposed to add.
They fight over so many things, especially for other people's attention. Some of the kids are OKU(disabled) and didnt go to school.

They came from different background. Some of them are not even orphans(!!), but their parents abandoned them

and let them stay there. Some of them were abused, too. And became retarded (may Allah punish those who did this cruel thing!).

One of the boys told me that they dun have much, but they are grateful because more kids are suffering much more than them. I had to fight my tears hearing his words.

Please everyone. Help us (Young MERCY) to help them. Donate in anyway u can to make a difference. If u live nearby in Selangor, just visit them and be grateful of what you have (or not have) in your life...

I made this special video to raise funds for them 2 years ago.. But insha Allah, I shall visit them again soon and see if the condition there has improved or otherwise. May Allah bless these kids and those who play their roles to help them. Only Allah can reward your sincerity..

Memories of Raya...

It has not been the best raya, but I think as we grew older, that's just the way it is.
The fun is less (no more mercun, fireworks or even that pop pop thing), and yeah,
the duit raya just got lesser than ever. I am not whining ok. Just stating a fact.
huhu.I know I posted this late (its not syawal anymore) but I just one to treasure
one of the moments that make me recall that this year 2010 raya wasn't so bad at all. :)

*with my siblings~ the sisterhood of travelling shawls :P*
*with our cousins and cousin's child*

*house-hopping to open (or not open) houses*
*with my grandpa~ the cutest being in the world!*
TQ for still remembering my name and recognizing my face Tok Ayah dear.
He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease few months ago.
My heart shattered upon knowing this. :'(

The other day last week, I was late to class. I forgot that we had a session with this particular professor who is very very very particular about punctuality. She repeated this issue many times during our first briefing. I was having my usual Monday blues at that time, but I thought I could still make it on time to our campus in Cyberjaya from Kajang. The distance is exactly 30km and I usually take 25 minutes to arrive. The class was scheduled to start at 8.00 am and zero second.

I departed from my house at around 7.11am, but I was so shocked with the heavy traffic jam at such timing. I was stucked at Sungai Ramal for more than half and hour and I was sweating with worry, despite the aircond. There was nothing I could do except prayed the class got postponed somehow. I sped my way to Cyber after the jam but tough luck, I reached at around 8.07am. Parking the car and running to the class at 3rd floor took another few minutes, so I ended up in class after 8.10am.

She was smiling when I knocked the door with my apologies. And oh, I was fined RM2 for being late! About 4-5 of my colleagues came later than me, too. And fined RM2 as well. To make it worst, when she asked me for my logbook to sign my attendance, I just realized that I did not bring the one and only thing that I must bring!! I told her that I might have left the book in my car, and she said go get it now. I prayed hard that the logbook is somewhere in my car....but it was not. I could not find it anywhere. I feel like driving back to Kajang to take the logbook and come back, but too bad in about an hour, we had to rush to Klinik Kesihatan Dengkil for a briefing.

I really couldn't believe my luck. Without the logbook signed, it is considered that I did not attend the class at all. That noon, I drove back to Kajang to get my logbook since we had another session at 2 p.m. And guess what..No logbook at home, too!! :( I feel so devastated. I wasted my time and oil for nothing. Now I have to pay RM15 for a new logbook. Just great... Suddenly when I was about to get out of my car, I felt like bringing my little notebook along to reply any emails or orders. When I opened the zipper, I had to scream when I saw the logbook inside!

So after thinking about it, this is how I shall rephrase my post, not by the sequence of unfortunate events, but by the things that I am thankful for, with His grace.

#1. RM2 FINE: I was speeding like nuts on my way to college since I was late, but thank God, although I was 10 minutes late, I still managed to come in one piece (not involved in any accident). And yes, I have learnt my lesson not to come late ever again!!

#2. THE LOGBOOK: I thought I lost it. When I gave up seeking for it and was about to head to the Admin to buy for a new one, I unexpectedly got it back. :) Kat dalam keta tu jugak le buat sujud syukur..huhu.

#3. COINCIDENCE:And one pleasant thing that I remember happened that day was I coincidentally wore similar cardigan with the same colour as Wafaa. Yes, unlike most people who don't like wearing the same thing as your classmates, we are different. We take pictures to commemorate such event! I know its weird, but hey it is fun la! :P


Ramadhan is nearing the end, but I just feel like sharing this pix with you guys :)

Bila kita memulakan sesuatu...
Kadang-kadang kita lupa letakkan niat
Kadang-kadang kita lupa baca Bismillah
Sebab tu bila ada masalah,
Kita cepat menyerah...

Bila kita berniat...
Kadang-kadang kita lupa letakkan usaha,
Kadang-kadang kita tunggu disergah baru hendak mengolah,
Sebab tu bila kerja tak menjadi,
Kita mula angkat kaki...

Bila kita berusaha...
Kadang-kadang lupa pula hendak berdoa,
Siang malam kerah tenaga dan masa...
Sebab tu bila kerja masih tak sempurna,
Kita mudah putus asa...

Bila kita berniat, berusaha dan berdoa...
Kadang-kadang kita lupa pula untuk bertawakkal pada Yang Esa.
Bertawakal pun pada bicara tapi di hati masih buta.
Sebab tu bila dilanda masalah,
Kita marah tak tentu hala...

Bila kita berniat, berusaha, berdoa dan bertawakal...
Kadang-kadang kita tetap alpa,
Nak sebut Alhamdulillah pun payah,
Berdoa pun sekali sekala,
Bersyukur sekejap cuma..

Sebab tu bila kita berjaya,
Allah datangkan ujian dan musibah...
Supaya kita ingat dan kembali ke jalan redha,
Tetapi kita kecewa sampai mencari jalan mudah..
Membenci diri memusuhi nadi.

Kita manusia ciptaan Allah,
Bernafas di udara yang sama,
Bila lemah Allah itu ada,
Bila derita Allah itu bersama,
Senang, susah, sedih, gembira...
Allah takkan lupa pada langkah kita.

Kadang-kadang lebih suka dicintai,
Sebab itu kita lupa menyintai Yang Maha Menyintai,
Kadang-kadang kita lebih suka menyendiri,
Tapi lupa Allah sedang memerhati...

Original article from:


Its a good reminder even though its old news... A very good article which takes 2 minutes to read. Sent by a friend of a frieBoldnd who had about 25 or 30 years in the field with such emergencies. Its about Heart Attacks And Drinking Hot or Warm Water.

For those who like to drink cold water [I AM one of those people :P...], this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and can lead to hypertension and heart attack. It is best to drink hot or warm drink after a meal. Now I am going to start drinking hot tea again like I used to every single day when I was younger. (Ouch!.. I meant when I was in high skool okie.. I am not that old yet..arrghh). And by the way, tea is a good antioxidant! I will post more on this since I am a tea-addict! :)

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack

A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that NOT EVERY heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting . Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms... 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we have to survive.

ART is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature,
film, photography, sculpture, and paintings.

In my case, art can be a spontaneous product of boredom :P, which ends up in this portrait of half of my siblings. I simply used Microsoft Powerpoint to add those colourful clouds before I copy pasted this into Paint and air brushed a bit our silhouette to hide my messy croppy works. I know this piece I called art was flawed, but hey,a picture with someone who matters can't go wrong rite. hehe (^_^)...
Me, Irah & Halim

I spent almost 2 hours (have I mentioned I was bored?) just for this one pix. Why? To be honest, recent events somehow made me realise that I should really treasure my siblings (and the whole family as a matter of fact). A dear friend of mine lost her younger brother in an accident a couple of weeks ago. He was only 22 years old..When I attended the funeral, I had to fight myself not to break down to be strong for her. Despite facing countless deaths at the hospital, that was my first time actually to go to the cemetery and tengok orang tanam jenazah depan mata. I did not managed to do that for my grandparents or any relatives.

It broke my heart seeing the grief of the whole family for yet another lost of their loved ones. May Allah give you all strength to face this. Death is certain, but I can not imagine having to lose any of my siblings :( ... Ok I have to stop now. Started crying again... Bulan puasa nie dh memang x cukup air (dehydrated..).. Okay. Happy fasting to all Muslims. Semoga Ramadan kali ini tidak berlalu dengan sia-sia kerana Ramadan akan datang masih belum pasti akan dilalui oleh kita.
