Assalamualaikum. Life is like a wheel, one day you are up (happy) and another you will be down(sad). As for me, I guess I am at the nadir or the wheel currently and I feel like it has been stationary there for quite sometime; I am waiting for it to go up.
Currently I am hit with so many dugaan and cubaan. I am still thankful to Him for blessing me with these many trials which constantly remind me how fragile and how undignified I am to Him. May this be a journey in my life that teaches me how Great is Him the Almighty.
To those who have been questioning how I am doing after NS, the answer is hectic but dull. I sincerely miss NS. Life as a medic is truly great, we get to see sick people. Unstable not only on the outside but also the inside. I am thankful that I am blessed with an opportunity to understand my society even more closely. Through the calls that I've responded to, I've learn how fragile one's life can be. Life and death can switch in just a matter of seconds. We are so boastful sometimes, as a Teacher, as a Doctor, as a Lawyer, as a President, as a Singer, as a Leader, as a Rich Fella... We are never complete people; we are imperfect. How great a Teacher can you be without a student? How great a Doctor you can be without a patient? How great a President that you can be without a nation? How great a Rich Fella you can be without the poor? Without the poor, you think you can call yourself rich? Without the sick, you think you can call yourself healthy? Without the unlucky buggers, you think you can call yourself lucky? We all need each other. There will always be someone better than us, and also always there's someone worse than us.
Anyway, I am leaving for a short trip, insyaAllah. I will talk about this trip when the time comes. I am putting everything else to a halt, now concentrating on the preparation for this trip. My hair is getting very long, looking pretty haggard now but everything will change hopefully after my return from the trip and need to prepare for university soon!!!

Assalamualaikum. I thought I would be much more free after my last duty but hmmm I guess not. I am becoming more and more busy. I am most probably not free this whole month. Am really sorry to friends and family members whom I've declined any kind of meetings with. Am truly sorry, Ana Asiif!
Recently, in Malaysia they had this concert in conjuction with Maulidur Rasul, Konsert Malam Sinar Maulidur Rasul which feature Rabbani, Mawi, Ustaz Akhil Hayy, Haji Amy Search, Ustazah Siti Nor Bayyah and best of all Dato' Hajjah Siti Nurhaliza. Thought of going to Kuala Lumpur to catch it but got something important on. Heard that Ustazah Siti Nor Bayyah moved the whole crowd to tears. A BIG well done with a capital 'W' to the organisers and sponsors. Here are some pictures by Minaq_Jinggo.
Anyway, now am preparing and working on a special ORD Blog Entry, so wait up... It is coming soon! Meanwhile enjoy this song by Sami Yusuf entitled Hasbi Rabbi sung in 4 different languages which are English, Arbic, Hindi and Turkish languages, MasyaAllah!

Assalamualaikum. Sometimes I wondered if my expectations of them are way too high, am I expecting too much from them? I don't know why is it so hard to follow instructions and learn quickly... Does to have the basic respect for your seniors and all, need to be taught? Is giving back to me what I've given you so hard? At times, I think I am so strong emotionally to give them whatever they are unable to give me back! Give me the strength and guidance!
Anyway, watched Bride Wars with Kenneth last Sunday after having a lunch to celebrate my father's birthday at Eatzi Restaurant, Yishun Safra! I didn't know Eatzi Restaurant is a halal branch of Jack's Place. Nice food and good ambience. Enjoyed catching up with Kenneth at the MacDonalds!

Assalamualaikum. Yesterday, attended a ceramah entitled "Keganasan, Punca & Penawarnya". by MHDS led by Ustaz TM Fouzy at Bedok Stadium. It began with solat Fardhu Maghrib followed by solat Sunnat Hajat. It was a very meaningful concourse and I was truly glad to be one of the participant. In his ceramah, he did not only talk about the current war in Gaza but also about the war in a smaller scale that we are all facing unsubconsciously. This is the war our hearts is facing. Even a slight ego or angst is actually a war. It is war between our heart trying hard not to succumb to the murmur of Devil. The way we talk to our parents and other family members, is it "peaceful" enough? The way we react to the foolishness and the mistakes our friends accidentally commit? The war in Gaza, I believe, started with just angst and an enormous ego of the various leaders, then translated to fiery speech and then lead to a BIG war. Don't look at the big war and start pinpointing the mistakes-doers that cause it, but look at us, look at our minute war that we are struggling with everyday. This may lead to a big war too. Expel all the angst and ego that we have in our heart. Who are we to have that ego? Who are we to be angry? Who are we to exhibit the arrogance? While we know there is a MIGHTY who grants and bless us with all the wealth, health, strength, intelligence and handsomeness we have. It all comes from Him. We always forget.
Talking about ego, we guys always think that we are better than our partners. Even though we love them, sometimes we think they are disposable, not realising that they are actually an integral part of us. Appreciate them men! Oh wait, after reading this, please do not think that I am attached now. I am not; still single and available. I am saying this after listening to Dato' Siti Nurhaliza's latest soundtrack for Perempuan Berkalung Sorban entitled Batasku Asaku. Guys, this is a song dedicated to you from your dear life partners...
Bila kutercipta dari tulang rusukmu
Mengapa kumampu sempurnakan hidupmu
Bila ku ada karena kau ada
Mengapa kau tak bisa sendiri saja...
Batasku Asaku, OST Perempuan Berkalung Sorban, Dato' Siti Nurhaliza, Attan Hardillas

Assalamualaikum. Just would like to track back a bit, on 10th January 2009, I have finally met up with my Yishun Primary School peeps. These are the people that I have known for quite some time, some up to 15 years already. I have known Huda and Syarif since I was 5 years old. Rashid was in the same class as me all the way in the entire 6 years of primary school education. Am glad that we are still contacting and seeing each other. Usually, we will only meet during Hari Raya to visit Cikgu Sadiah, but Alhamdulillah this year we got to meet again for a non-Hari Raya gathering. It feels weird to see one another not in baju kurung or kebaya like usual. We went to eat at Arab Street and then had a Shisha session after the dinner. To spice things up, Huda brought her old diary where most of us did write our "decorated" and "elaborated" profiles in it. When I looked at mine, gosh I did not know where to bury my face. Many spelling mistakes and stupid stuffs that I wrote! But yeah, it reminded me that I was once a child and childish. Coming up, it will be a YPS picnic gathering at East Coast Park. More interestingly, I will be planning it with someone whom I've known when I was 1 day old. She was born a day later and we both cukur
-ed our jambul
on a same event.
