Colorful life


Hi folks,
Hope you are all enjoying the hot summer days. Well, it depends on where you are. Anyway, either hot or cold, it's all from Allah, so let's refrain ourselves from complaining even in the mildest of remarks. At least to most of us, He does not send a weather that is harmful. 

I am thrilled to be back in my hometown - Penang, yet again. Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah to have a decent shelter to call my own. And the currency rate is good ; ) We have to enumerate our blessings clearly and specifically you know. Oh well, At least we don't belong with those who brag about living in a huge 6-bedroom bungalow but in truth, their house is in a distasteful mess. So, refrain from bragging and more importantly refrain from bluffing your way with an intention to trick women. The prophet salallah alaihi wasalam paid special attention to women's well being. He [pbuh] did not teach you, men, to take women for a ride. Allah knows all that you hide in your hearts no matter how hard you try to cover up. 

It's the auspicious times of ZulHijjah Alhamdulillah. I should start spring-cleaning the house a.s.a.p to prep it for Eid aul-Adha celebrations InShaAllah. And...I am so looking forward to visiting a maqam of a saint in the heart of George Town. 

OK folks, may we belong with those who add colors to a person's monochromatic life. May we belong with those who give hope and put a smile on someone's face.

MSA: I really don't know what to do with the RM17,000 Tiffany ring. Perhaps, I should sell it and donate to your seemingly Islamic NGO project with that Singaporean actress LOL. And the other RM25,000++ worth of Tiffany jewelry too, perhaps, perhaps, perhaps but nahh...there are many better/genuine Islamic projects out there.
Just don't mess with me ever again ya. 
Oh, it's strange why you are working on the Spain mosque donation project when you blatantly abandoned the China mosque donation drive with Sister Mariah before. But I guess she is right in saying that she is old and not as pretty as that Singaporean actress cos that's how you decide to work on "Islamically inclined" projects. LOL. I can't believe you told Sister Mariah I was your P.A. All I knew I went to China because you enlisted me as a volunteer for Yayasan Al Tarmidhi.
Perhaps it's about time you come out clean and offer us an apology. Well, at least to clear your father's good name!

I hope your wife/spy read this and convey the message to you. Wonder what you'll say just to cover up your ill antics.
We noticed the actress pulled down the poster of your Qurban project, the supposedly joint effort between the above mentioned Yayasan and your NGO with her, what happened? 
One new targeted young woman with whom you wish to try out so... many projects! Don't get us wrong, we don't hate you, we just hate the ugly things "gatal" men do on the pretext of working for the religion.

"The signs of a hypocrite are three.
Whenever he speaks, he lies.
Whenever he promises, he breaks his promise.
Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays."
- Prophet Muhammad salallah alaihi wasalam

Selfishly busy


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah
We gotta be selfishly busy loving our lives unless you want to pay someone to live it for you? Lol
My longggg holiday is almost over. Alhamdulillah that Allah continues to bless our time that we have the opportunity to spend it with our loved ones for things that matter most.

I am also grateful that Allah has given me the strength to be fierce about protecting my rights and dignity that I don't hold back when I need to stand up and speak up. If you were to reflect a little deeper you will realize that in regards to our association with Allah, it's always a win-win. Even when it seems like you are losing, He would actually facilitate for you to come out of the 'loss' as a winner. That is why we have to always have husnul zan towards Him, have good expectations of Him. He is indeed fair and All-Knowing, so keep calm, let Him say "Be!" cos it is His prerogative, whereas our task is simply to embrace it as it is.

Keep smiling.
Be grateful and say your thanks to Him a lil extra if He happens to give you a great smile. For there are just so many people around us upon whom Allah has given sufficient provision yet they find it hard to crack a smile. How stingy they are and verily that tightness, their constriction is a reflection of their self-inflicted punishment.

It might also be a punishment from the Lord for the wrongs they did unto others.
So rejoice if you are among those who are blessed with a cheerful countenance.

MSA - I repeat, go on, live with a clear conscience if you can. Allah is fair in His reckoning.
By the way MSA, I know now why you once asked me how come I don't have eyebags. Cos you see plenty of them at home : D

18 days off | Off the beaten path


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah my 18-days holiday has just begun. Hmm...not quite a holiday cos it's punctuated by two exams but yass...the rest is holi holiday YaHuuu Allah Kareem indeed!

A reminder for me and you to be brave and be daring to take a different path.

Towering genius disdains a beaten path.
It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.
- Abraham Lincoln

Happy blissful Friday!

A smile is your best curve ; )

Pocketing prosperity


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah!
For an awesome evening listening to people's success stories. You know you have the right attitude when your heart expands and grin from your right armpit to your left armpit just hearing about a person's success stories. LOL.

It's important to have the right attitude about wealth and prosperity. The experts say it's not about creating wealth, it's about tuning oneself to the frequency of wealth, it's about being in the same wave with fortune. In other words, we gotta psychologically pocket it before it makes way to our pockets or purse. I know it doesn't make sense to some people but do ponder, meditate and reflect. I have been trying to internalize it as I am open to new ideas and possibilities.

This small sharing is for my nieces and nephews so they would give it a thought. But of course, they would still be hoping their aunt would 'belanja' (treat) them lol.

I can't wait to finish my exams and go chill with them my loved ones.

May Allah make us more grateful for all His gifts bestowed upon us in the past, present and future.

Felicitations! | Kudos!


Felicitations to all the great French men on the pitch in Moscow tonight, and of course to all French men and women for their victory. What else can a fan say? : D

Twenty years ago, I told my then partner who was a footballer himself, that I saw something about France early in the 1998 tournament, that they might end up winning the World Cup, but he dismissed my women's instinct. Poor guy LOL. 

This year, again my instinct proved right and I am so very happy especially for all the visitors of this blog from France cos they are the all-time second highest country-visitors to this blog, after Malaysia.

Croatia as a smallish country with a mere 4 million population yet this young nation could be so skillful, brave and talented on the world stage the way they performed tonight, for that they truly deserved a hats-off. Kudos!

If there's one serious takeaway from the game, especially for our youth, amidst the fun, is that health can create wealth. Cos if you really polish your physical performance you could excel in your chosen field. Of course, mental performance is a subset of one's physical prowess. So let the youth take heed and use their youth-time wisely and always move forward. 

If I could turn back time, I would undo some mistakes I did during my youth phase. I am just grateful that Allah has given me plenty of opportunities to redeem myself and I think regardless of our age, every day should be a day to better ourselves in every way possible because it is even more sinful to think that you are already good and have got nothing to be remorseful about. So, embrace life more positively and move forward. 

There's one French proverb we all should try to learn:
Qui n'avance pas, recule.
"Who does not move forward, recedes.

Anyway, let's have scrumptious croissants for breakfast this Monday morning. 

Je t'aime!

How can I not love France when they have got a lovely place called Chateau Eza! Let's see who will take me there ; )

The tough gets going


Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
It's time to study, study and study for exams.
But first, when the going gets tough, go Haagen Dazs : )
Also to treat my dear mother who loves it, who doesn't?

"Tough times never last but tough people do."
Dr Robert Schuller

I am okay despite that a-wee-bit stressful look before the ice cream arrives at our table.

"How beautiful to find a heart that loves you
without asking you for anything
but to be okay."
- Khalil Gibran

To all the wonderful and kind hearts out there, who continually wish me well for my exams and all my undertakings, who pray for me from a distance - may Allah bless you with a lot more bounties than what you have wished for me.

"Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love."

Like a tree


So today I had to appear like a tree for a campaign at work.

I am reminded of the sayings of the Lord:
A good word is like a good tree 
whose root is firmly fixed 
its branches high in the sky.

Go green!
Save a tree!

Behind every cute tree
there stands a ghost LOL
