New Year 2009


In just few minutes away, the year 2008 will come to an end. The Israeli attack on the weakless Palestinian depicts the end of the this year. Yes, the world certainly condemns the act. But the Israeli are stubborn and cruel. The Palestinian only uses stone and their body to attack and defend themselves, while the Israeli uses all their might, the Merkava, the air strikes and etc. I believe not all Israeli supports this attack. The Israeli government to be blame. The American government does nothing. The attack is just like an elephant crushing an ant.

For the Palestinian, we can only offer you moral support. We asked god to forgive us to not being able to be there with you. Only our prayers and moral support we can offer. I would like all of you to read this blog from our Tun M. Very interesting.

Anyway, have a happy new year. May it be a year that is just nice to all of us.

P.s: The world economy is in turmoil, with the drop of US Dollar, we have to be prepared.......

New Year Resolution.........


Nampaknya tahun 2008 dan 1429 hijrah dah nak sampai ke penghujungnya. I think this is the first time for me that these new years coincide together(The Gregorian and the Hijrah calender). Yela, dua2 datang dekat-dekat. Jadi sepanjang tahun ini apa yang telah capai? Is it for the good or the bad? Memang tahun ini penuh dengan warna-warninya. First time duk umah sewa, akhirnya dpt gak memandu secara halal, learn new things and also making new thing and etc. Kalau tengok listnya memang endless. Jadi, what does next year hold for us? Well, its something that is worth looking for. Getting better grades and becoming a better person is just a normal resolution being repeated from year to year. So, kita berdoa agar apa yang kita hajati akan terlaksana dan tercapai. Amin......

Jadi jangan lupa untuk baca doa akhir dan awal tahun. Kalo doa akhir tahun, selalunya dibaca lepas waktu asar till maghrib, apabila masuknya waktu maghrib maka bacalah doa awal tahun..

Semalam, kita dikejutkan dengan kemangkatan Almarhum Tuanku Jaafar, iaitu agong malaysia yang ke-10 dan Yang Di-Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan. Semoga rohnya dicucuri Allah SWT.

Apa pun, saya ingin mengucapkan selamat menyambut kedatangan 1430 Hijrah. Semoga kedatangan anda penuh dangan warna-warni........

P.s: sorry for using the rojak style language. I don't usually do that somehow.....

Books......... of Pendragon n Menzies 1421

1421.jpg (53 KB)

Been out of the limelight for quite some time. A person had been curious why I haven't updated this blog. Being busy is not the answer, it's just that I don not have a slight idea what to jot down here.

Anyway, thanks to EOP, I've got to find a book to read and review. During the holidays, I did bought a book from the Pendragon series. The book was written by DJ MacHale. The cover and the synopsis was very interesting. So, after doing a lot of thinking, I bought the book without any regret. It turn to be otherwise. After just reading 3 chapters, I began to dislike the book. The plot was okay, but the way and the language didn't satisfy my taste. The storyline was about a boy who is good student with the complete package being transported into another world to become their saviour working together with his uncle to defeat Saint Dane. Anyway, I've only read the book halfway due to my dislikement. So, today, I've ventured out to find a book worthwhile to be read and review.

After doing some thinking for about ten minutes, Gavin Menzies's 1421 The Year China Discovered The World won my heart. I've been longing to buy that book. I first postponed it due to the lack of funds in my wallet. In this book, Menzies described on how the Chinese are the first explorer of the world rather than Columbus or Vasco da Gama who did that a century later. His fascinantion of the topic began with the discovery of a very ancient map of the world produced in 1424. The map almost depict the European and the African continent with an additional mysterious island labeled Anthila and Satanazes. The words are in Portugese. Anthi which means other and ila for island . Satanazes means Devil's Land. 

I've only read chapter 1, so I can't further elaborate about Menzies's work. Well, if you are an avid history fan, you'll surely love this book.......................

Its the season again


We are having a gloomy month when we are approaching the end of 2008. Many joyful, sorrowful, shocking event we have seen this year. But, now its the rainy season. Most people believes that rain is a blessing. In Malay its "Hujan Rahmat". Even the Pahang's Jabatan Bekalan Air moto is 'Air itu rahmat' or in English, water is a blessing. With rain, it'll replenish our water reservoir and also allow the paddy farmer to start planting paddy back after the harvest season. Anyway, that is not the issue here.

What I''ll be writing is about the flood and the landslide at Bukit Antarabangsa. Yup, Terengganu, Pahang and Kelantan had been hit with the flood. Not forgetting the small area in Johor. Lives were lost. Houses covered with mud, electrical appliances soaked with water, savings were lost( some don't know what a bank is though). Those the were damaged cause. Don't forget the psychological aspect, some were badly traumatized. Some kids enjoy it to the fullest. Having fun playing with the water. This morning we've heard another landslide, this time at Bukit Antarabangsa, where most rich people live. The landslide was to be believed caused by the heavy rain. Lives were lost, houses, belongings gone in a instant. Sadness and sorrow will fill the hearts of those affected.

Now, let us wander, who are we to blame? The government? The developer? The engineer? The PBT? God even? In actuality, it is us who should take the blame. Its our attitude which might have caused this tragedy. The hills were trimmed down, logging of timber, land clearing to pave way for development, natural reservoir destroyed, who did this? Us again. Its just an application of the cause and effect law. For example, when we destroy the forest, where's the rain water gonna go? Normally the trees will sap in the water, while reducing the amount to absorb by the earth. Now, with the trees gone, where does it flow? Well we have the sewage to regulate the water flow. If its clogged, fill with rubbish, the water can't go with the flow and making it  go elsewhere. If its near a housing area, a flood is going to occur. Some folk in the village, didn't have the concern to create a drainage system. If they had, some are filled with overgrown lalang. A flood happen, and they'll blame the authorities for the cause. In a logical sense, why the PBT had to be concern with the matter as it occur due to their own negligence. Its our attitude which is the cause of this.

Just because of one idiot, those near to him will suffer also.........

Happy Eidul Adha!!!

Di dalam ruangan yang sempit ini, saya ingin mengucapkan takziah kepada Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran , Dato' Razali Ismail yang telah pulang ke rahmatullah. Beliau meniggal disebabkan serangan jantung.

Takziah juga diucapkan kepada Allahyarham Pak Ku Shadat atau nama sebenarnya Ku Nafiah Ku Aman. Saya pernah berjumpa dan sempat berbual dengan Allahyarham ketika beliau masih hidup kira-kira 4 tahun yang lalu dalam sebuah majlis. Beliau merupakan seorang yang sangat senang didekati dan mampu menutur pelbagai bahasa. Memang tak kering gusi kalau dok bersembang dgn dia. Lagunya yang paling terkenal ialah Vespa Haji Samad, Proton Saga dan lagu kegemaran saya, Anak-anak Mata. Lagu-lagunya semua berunsurkan nasihat yang ditujukan kepada semua lapisan masyarakat. Kehilangan Pak Ku Shadat pastinya akan dirasai dalam arena seni yang berfokuskan lagu rakyat/ seloka rakyat. Walaupun beliau kurang dikenali oleh generasi baru, namun karyanya tetap kedengaran di majlis keramaian (kenduri kahwin, majlis berendoi dan lain-lain) terutamanya bagi orang Utara. Pengakhiran hidupnya penuh dengan derita.

Semoga roh mereka berdua dicucuri rahmat Allah. Amin.
