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.

Isn’t love ironic? I have not been in many relationships to write about love (or heartbroken) as an expert, but I do have a few things to share. No matter how bad and hellish the break up was, how frustrating the reason was… you don’t deal with it alone… both of you dealt with it in different ways but in the same level of pain. I knew this for sure now. So...Why do I still believe in love? Perhaps because I don’t want to look for excuses just to be alone. As simple as that.

For a girl who has been in such pain because of love, I’m not scared to try and savor every bit of it… It’s not being stubborn and finding excuses just to evade the sadness… It is believing that loving and being in love may shatter my heart and my life but I will always hold it in my own hand.

Having enjoyed the bliss of love… shattered by the pain it can give… It is not that I’m obliged to point out why the “everything” about love can’t be explained nor justified. Love is a complex entity indeed.If you are with someone, it does not follow that you will lose your own individuality. You are what you are and your partner won’t oblige you to deviate from the person you are, unless you let it. You grow with experiences with people and most of the things we learned in life are when we entered a relationship. We learned the basic values of our existence like trust, respect, sacrifice, humility and love. It is not losing your individuality but sharing it… A single person can’t be called an individual if he does not want to be alone and let another person take that loneliness.

I dreamed what most girls wish when I was little… It changes as I grew up and realize that life is not the same way I had it when I was young… If there’s any dream that I would want to happen… that would be sharing my dreams with someone and making what he dreams of come true. It is like building my future with him as he sees his future with me… It is human nature to share whatever they accomplish in life… and they always share it to that special person closest to their hearts… and that’s the real thing… and that’s what makes us feel better…It is so like a fairytale thing but it’s how I want to seize each day of my life… that is not to make my every dream “once upon a time”.

When you are in a relationship, you are always unsure of a lot of things.. but u will go for it… because that’s what you wanted and you know that it’s worth taking. Friends can never replace boyfriends/girlfriends. Being in a relationship can never replace friendship likewise… There are always things that our friends can share with us and there are memories with that someone we love our friends won’t be able to understand.

Relationships are there to bring out the best and maybe the worst in us. It would break us but we will learn from it. Truly, love is not a simple matter. It is about seeing an imperfect person perfectly. Love itself is a universal experience. Yet, every individual occurrence seems absolutely unique because it expresses itself differently. It is important to stand in love, but not fall into it. Isn’t love ironic?
