Best of both worlds ( 29th December 2009 )


By AidanZ

We talk about changes all the time but very few of us are ready when it came descending upon us. The question is, how well would you embrace and adapt to the changes or you simply resisted it with all your might and power?

Still talking about the recent married life of course, I still remember how not so long ago, I, proudly and a little bit arrogantly, announced to my close friends that I won't change any of my lifestyle after i got married. I remember saying to them, I'm a city boy at heart... to the core, and nothing can change that. Nothing whatsoever!!

And I truly believe that! After all, i have no reason not to. I've spend my almost entire adult life in KL, and I can't just picture myself living in my hometown in Masjid Tanah.

But now, guess who's longing to go back and get settle there? Yeah, it's ME... the city boy at heart... to the core!!!

Funny when I think back of how nervous I was about getting married because i was scared i can't continue with my 'city thingy whatever', yet now so readily to embrace the changes which may alter the course of my life as i see it before.

Is it honeymoon effect? Or is it simply Love?
OR... maybe it is the destiny that lies waiting all this time, and just recently awaken by the sacred vows of marriage?
Hoho, whatever it is, i will keep my eyes wide open and pray to Allah for His Guidance. He knows better of what material i really made of, and will InsyaAllah, show me what's best for me and my family.

As for now, I will have to try balancing life of the two worlds.
And try to get the very best of both worlds...

P/S: Looks like i changed my mind about putting my wedding photo here huh. Hmm, talk about changes..

Me and My Wife ( 28th Dec 2008 )


It's been three weeks since my last post and three weeks also as a married man.
Do i like it? I Love It. As simple as that. No need to elaborate more.

I've been asked to put my wedding pictures here, but i found myself grimacing each time i look at them. In my mind, i said, it's not me. It was somebody else, wearing baju melayu, samping, tengkolok/songkok, while posing and smiling awkwardly, as if wishing he was somewhere else! The only time i really enjoyed posing for pictures was with my friends, and even then, i still look uncomfortable in those attire!

Hehe, my dear wife will 'tarik muka' if she read this. Sorry honey...!

So i decided to put one picture here. Not a wedding picture. But a photo of us, honeymooning at Cameron Highlands two weeks ago. I don't know about you guys but I think it's a good photo, and most important, bring a smile to my face each and every time i look at it...

One picture speaks a thousand words, and for me this is it...

Alhamdulillah... (5th Dec 2005)


By AidanZ

After a very loooong day yesterday, Alhamdulillah... i'm finally a married man.

It was a chaotic, full of emotions... and as i said, a very loooong day.
I would never have guessed, i would feel sad, stressed, yet an hour later, excited, happy, elated, proud and so many other emotions i don't have the vocabulary to write here!

But, as people always say, All's well when End's well.

Here, i want to thank personally to my brother, Aizzuddin and his wife, Wan Zorah for being there exactly on time. As i about to enter my then wife-to-be's house, the sight of them arrived with my beloved nephew, Hasif, and little Husna, made all my nervousness gone and brought a smile back on my face.

Also to my housemates: Alias, Iidil, Pidut and Shah; who arrived during a very long 'khutbah nikah', they gave a jolt of excitement to a rather 'dull' groom, before the aqad nikah, which thank God, only took once to complete.

Not to forget, all the wish-wishers that gave me something to distract my mind off the exhaustions and all sorts of emotions all day long, yesterday.

What can i say. Indeed, it was a very exhilarating moment. The second all the witnesses around nodded their heads in unison and said "sah...!", all while the clicking sounds and flashes of camera focused on every move and facial expressions, i forgot, how nervous or how uncomfortable i was at the time, as relief started to flood inside my heart while at the exact same second, it shouted, i'm a husband now!
Hmm, as i said, exhilarating!

But, as much as i want to spend this morning writing about all the touchy-feely stuff, i still have to prepare for today's kenduri. While I always know i'm not a big-functions-or-being-the-centre-of-attention-kinda-guy, i don't know how much i hate that until yesterday - all the photographers, giggling girls, forced smile, huh, really tiring. But i guess, this is part of the deal and i just have to bear with that a little while longer.
Oh, how much i look forward to being alone... hmm.. you know, with.. hmm.. ok, i better stop now, huhu.

Your tired yet happy friend,

Getting more nervous! ( 1st December)


By AidanZ

3 more days to go till the wedding... and what do you do?

Some of my friends suggest to practice the aqad recitation. Don't embarrass yourself, they said.
While some... well... most of them actually, just happy to tease me about the magical ----- (you know what i mean)

One of my friend recently sat with me and tell me at length about how to treat a wife. Mostly you just have to be firm, Z, he told me. Give appreciation whenever it's due but don't ever hesitate to give reprimand, also whenever it's due.

Another of my friend tipped me to clarify things (all the do's and dont's) from the very beginning. Clarify all the expectations! Don't wait after a few months or by then it might be too late to change things back to where they were supposed to be. Excellent tip, i thought

While another advice came in the form of  'wait and see' kind of approach. Everybody's different, said my friend. Make sure first what kind approach suits best for your wife and then act upon it. You're good at reading people. Should have no problem with that!

Because i was considered a little bit late to be married, maybe i kinda 'lucky' because i have so many friends that just ready to share their marriage wisdoms with me, and i'm really thankful for that. If only it can make me less nervous...

Huuuu, the waiting... agonizing yet exciting...

It's Not The End Yet (28 Nov 2009)


By AidanZ

Okay, i don't know what has gotten into me, but out of nowhere, i feel like i have to write something in here. Anything...
To be honest, my real last post (by real AidanZ) was way back in Feb, when i did review about "Geng: Pengembaraan Bermula", which you can count yourself, almost 9 1/2 month ago! Somebody can get pregnant and deliver her baby during that period! Phew! During which i also lost about... let say... all my blogging friends... that was quiet many at the time. Hmm, pity...

Although this blog wasn't entirely go dormant, thanks to Mullah and lately, Mas from Australia (who contribute the last 3,4 posts before this one), i for one can say, this blog has never been the same since...

I've been thinking a lot about this blog lately, and of course the most logical thing to do is to resurrect it...

The fact that i can write about almost anything again makes me feel excited. But if truth be told, I was excited before... and I still 'neglect' it for more than 3/4 year! And as if it's not enough, i'm getting married in 1 week period (on 4th December 2009), and obviously, i'll be more unavailable than ever!!

So my friends, for those who still sometimes come and visit this blog; If you didnt see any new entry from me (from now on, i'll put By AidanZ each time i write), please leave a message and remind me about my vow just now, will ya? Maybe i just need a reminder that i can still do this, no matter what. Hmm, I don't know what will happen in the future, but i sense... i will be very... very... very... glad and grateful if i can nail this! Hehe, call me 'cold feet', panic or whatever, i really mean it!

And lastly, wish me luck as i enter a new phase of my life as a married man on the said date...
Please pray for my happiness and most imporantly, to have a blessing and rahmat from ALLAH...!!

Thank You,

Your nervous... yet excited friend,

Shark of Life

My friend, Ms USA send me this story to think about...

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades.

So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price.

So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste.

The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish. So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan ? If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend?

How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh: To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged.

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired & dull, so we need a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving?

Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and taste better...The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a challenge.
If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering those challenges, you are Conqueror...

You think of your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new solutions. You have fun. You are alive!

Lessons of the story:

1. Instead of avoiding challenges, jump into them. Beat the heck out of them. Enjoy the game. If your challenges are too large or too numerous, do not give up. Failing makes you tired. Instead, reorganize. Find more determination, more knowledge, more help.

2. God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but he did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

3. Disappointments are like road bumps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards...Don't stay on the bumps too long. Move on!

4. When you feel down because you didn't get what you want, just sit tight and be happy, because God has thought of something better to give you. When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means. There's a purpose to life's events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.

5. No one can go back and make a brand new start. But anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. So, Show me the SHARK!

Nursery Survey

I received a call from Pendekar Kucing (a friend of mine) today. He told me a about an insident that happened to one of our friend, his baby (2 1/2 month) now is in the ICU because of bleeding in the brain. This happens just after 2 weeks he sent his baby to a nursery. When i heard this stuff i feel so sad, and i believe all mothers will be feeling the same. So, i would like to do a survey, if you have heard or experience any accident involving nursery in our country, please share with me. Maybe with these stories we can do something to improve our Childcare services.

Thank you.

Hi it's me again. Last time i did mention about my friend who is in labour (delivering baby). Alhamdullilah, she got a baby boy at 13th October, 8.23pm. She is a very strong woman. She's in labour for 31 hours. This make me so grateful (Alhamdullilah), because i was in labour for only about 4-6 hours. All the man should be thankful for this, they do not have to feel the pain at all.

Just a summary of what Mothers will be feeling, from start of the pregnancy until the delivering part.

1- For the first 3 months, mother will be extra careful, for the baby safety and extra manja with the husband ;)
2- For the second trimester (3-6 monts of pregnancy), parents will be discussing about the baby's gender, most of the mothers want a girl, and father want a boy, but at last, parents will say, it's ok, as long as the baby is healthy.
3- For the third trimester (7-9 months) esspecially on the 9th month, mother, will be feeling, the pregnancy is already too long and very eager to deliver the baby.
4- During the labour, em, i can't explain that, but the husband need to be very2 patient and be extra supportive to the wife, because she's realy having a tough time.
5-After, the delivery, parents will be so happy with the newbord. But, the mother will say, no more baby. This is the only time i am going to get pregnant, and this feeling will last for about 6 months and maybe can last for years. (This is what they called labour trauma).
6- Finally, your life will not be the same again with the little one. So, for those couples who are still single, or will be getting marry soon, just enjoy your married life before planning to have a baby. Try to know your partner better, as it is very important in buiding a family.

Salam and hi, i am Mizan's mother, Mr. moderator gave me the permission to write in this blog (thank you). So, today is my first entry and also my birthday. I just want to make today more memorable ;).

I just send my son to the baby sitter, and go to the antenatal clinic with my friend. Her due date (to deliver her baby) is today. (So, 3 things are happening today he..he..). Today make me relize how independent i am, i need to handle a baby and a pregnant lady and do my research study all in one time.

Yeah, when you are getting older, you can't depend to anyone else, you have to learn to do by yourself. Actually, in the past, i am a spoil doughter (since i am the only girl in my family), i always need to ask my mum whenever i want to do anything.  But now, i am a mother, i can't do that anymore..he..he..

Change to other topic now, I just want to wish congratulations to Bagan Pinang voters who had make their choice..and, do not forget to ask the Winner to fullfill their promises. If they did not, use your right and don't afraid to complaint.

Ok, i'll continue other time, as i need to time my friend's contraction...;) bye.

Why I did'n join the Demo.....

By Mullah
Last Saturday, 1 August 2009, I have a 'kenduri arwah' at my house, Subang Jaya. Coincidentally, the date is same with 'Himpunan Mansuh ISA' at Kuala Lumpur. And because of this, I will write my opinion on that matter

Personally, I think that 'Himpunan Mansuh ISA' should not be allowed or permitted in Kuala Lumpur. First, the 'victims' are the petty traders especially the local traders that hope to see their sales rise on Saturday and Sunday. I know that some of you will disagree with me because of this matter but if you were the traders that 'cari makan' there from 7 am - 9 pm, you will understand what business all about. 'Himpunan Mansuh ISA' is not like BERSIH demonstration, that unite all the people in order to seek a clean election and electoral list. Besides that, the BERSIH demonstration is planned ahead of time, if I'm not mistaken, months before the target date. If I were the organizer of 'Himpunan Mansuh ISA', I will organize the demonstration inside the stadium, as the Selangor's Pakatan Rakyat did in Stadium Melawati. Not that I did not support the movement's aspiration, but I think the Government should talk with all interested parties including GMI and Pakatan Rakyat on how to improvise the ISA, that still relevant to our national security. Besides of having 60 0r 90 days detention without trial, the related parties could discuss on how to contain the terrorist or 'threats to national security' in relevant and humane ways.
I know that there are many people support or did not support the ISA. For instance, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim supported the Operasi Lalang during his years with the Government but withdraw his support when he's with Pakatan Rakyat. If we compare to other countries, United States, United Kingdom, Singapore and Israel have security laws that almost similar to us and receive many criticism on their security laws.Hhmmm............ there are many views on this matter... So, how you readers think about this????.......

29052009:Friday Prayer-1245 pm!!

By Mullah

     Alhamdulillah, I could write again after a busy day today. To my dear readers, there is an     interesting story to relate and to think about for this week  

   On Friday, 29052009, I went to OGA exhibition at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) at Kuala Lumpur. So, after a 30 minute going around the exhibition booths inside the KLCC, I went to have lunch at KFC KLCC with my staffs. And after the brief lunch, I went to Masjid Syakirin, KLCC to perform the Friday Prayer.
  As I performed the Tahiyatul Masjid Prayer, I heard some body said 'Assalamualaykum' over the microphone. So, the jamaah answered the greetings back. Suddenly, the Arab speaker gave azan. 'Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar'...... And the jamaah got startled from their iktikaf and some jamaah got confused. But the Arab speaker just went on with the azan......
  Until, the wordings 'Hayya 'Alal Falah', the Arab speaker was stopped and one Abang comforted the Arab person from his doings. The Arab speaker speak back. 'In my country, we perform Friday Prayer at this time'. The Abang said back ' Well, that is in your country. In Malaysia, we perform the Friday Prayer when the Zuhur time comes'. So, my dear readers, who is right and who is wrong???....This interesting story could be related to what Ustaz Zaharuddin wrote in his blog at http://www.zaharuddin.net/content/view/836/72/
  To make the story short, majority of ulamaks opined that the Friday Prayer should be performed after the Zuhur time comes and based on 'hadith-hadith shahih'. But, some ulamaks belief that Friday Prayer could be performed after 'matahari gelincir', also based on 'hadith-hadith shahih'. So, there is no need to debate who is right and who is wrong in this matter. Besides that, We, as Muslims, should open our minds and brains while holding Islamic principle to the core. There are many things to do in little time.... See you...........

Just Another....

By Mullah
Last night, I went to nearby masjid to perform Isyak prayer. When I arrived inside the masjid, there was a ceramah agama, given by a local Ustaz

So, while waiting for the Isyak prayer, I listened carefully to the ceramah and the topic was about nafsu. This Ustaz, was reading the 'kitab kuning' in front of 30-40 jamaahs and as you and I know, some of the jamaah members were really 'khusyuk' until fallen asleep. I didn't knew why they were falling asleep. Was it because of the monotone of the ceramah or the ineffectiveness of the Ustaz to dakwah the jamaah or the physical limitations of the jamaah themselves?? But dear readers, this is not the main point of why I'm writing this article

The main point is when the Ustaz says from the 'kitab kuning' about the Ulamak that didn't remember names of his wife, children and his students ALL THE TIME. Why?? Good question.. The Ustaz explained that the Ulamak was so zuhud and his Heart is tied (ingat) only to ALLAH. Not like us that remembers friends' names, parets' names and so on And that triggers me to think during the ceramah.

As we all know that the ONLY person who is 'paling zuhud', 'paling beriman', 'tok guru segala tok guru', 'paling alim' among us (makhluk) and 'Kekasih ALLAH' is Nabi Muhammad SAW. And as we all read, discuss and think, Nabi Muhammad SAW remembers his wive's names (Siti Khadijah, Aisyah), his daughters' names (Fatimah) and his Companions (Abu Bakar, Umar, Ali) and as we all know that we are umat Nabi Muhammad SAW. So, I ask you, dear readers, whom to follow??? And the answer is Nabi Muhammad SAW. So, how this Ustaz can says that this Ulamak is special and his Heart is so pure that he only remembers ALLAH ALL THE TIME and did not remembers other names, while Nabi Muhammad SAW, 'Kekasih ALLAH', remembers his wives' names, his daughters' names and Companions' names???

Hhmm.... It is very hard to find a good, qualified and modernized Ustaz in Manjung, Perak. A Good Ustaz can give dakwah EFFECTIVELY, cater to YOUNG MINDS while not neglecting the VETERANS' ATTENTION. A Good Ustaz that can PROFESSIONALIZE the ULAMAKs and 'ULAMAK'size the PROFESSIONALS. Until we can produce and educate these so Good Ustaz, then there Just Another visit to Masjid........... See you...........

The Day That Federer Cried

By Mullah

Yesterday, Sunday, 07062009, the World witnessed 2 Histories in the making. One was when Federer became the 6th person to achieve Career Grand Slam at French Open 2009, after Andre Agassi did it in 1999 at the same venue; French Open 1999. Secondly, Federer tied with Pete Sampras' record of 14 Grand Slam, earlier than Pete did it and we, the supporters, think about it. But then, History is History

Yesterday was the day Federer cried after defeated Robin Soderling, a new, arising Giants-killer in Tennis World, in 3 consecutive sets: 6-1, 7-6(1) and 6-4. He landed both his knees to the clayground, the same ground that saw Federer became Runner-up from 2006-2008 and now, the same ground that saw Federer completed his quest to become 'the best tennis player in history'. Soderling said it and we, the viewers, already knew it.

Hhhmm..... so what is after French Open 2009???. My plan is to finish reading 'The Undercover Economist','The Night Train to Lisbon'n and to assist my Company to get the Integrated Management System (IMS) this year.. Hhhm.... after that.. let's see when the Wimbledon 2009 starts....

Nasi Ganja dan Silaturrahim

By Mullah

Assalamualaikum and Good Morning. So long that I haven't update this blog until I discussed with my bro, Aidan, to make a 'comeback' here. After almost 3 months hiatus, I prefer to write about 'Nasi Ganja' and 'Silaturrahim'. 'Nasi Ganja' is not a 'drug rice'. Hahahahahaha. But, it refers to 'Nasi Kandar' and in this entry, I would like to suggest YOU to try Nasi Kandar at Restoran Venggey Sdn Bhd.

Last Wednesday, my boss and I went to Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), Ipoh to submit some documents to the DOSH officials related to our yard. After a brief discussion, we went to Restoran Venggey to try the 'Nasi Ganja' there for lunch. At first, I thought 'What is Nasi Ganja??'. After I went inside the restaurant, then I realised that this is the most popular Nasi Kandar Restaurant in Ipoh. Hhmm..... So I tried Nasi Kandar plus Ayam Kurma, vegetables and telur masin, and not to forget, a glass of Milo Ais to quench my thirst.Hhhmmm.... The taste is so delicious after a few 'suap' and I noticed that Nasi Kandar here is different compared to others because they add puddina paste to the rice. Hhmm...... So good and delicious
So how about 'Silaturrahim'. 'Silaturrahim' is the short name for Restoran Silaturrahim at Teluk Murroh, Larut. This restaurant, my friends, is famous for its a lot of 'lauk-pauk', plus 'ulam' and drinks such as Sunquick Mango and Pegaga Ais. Hahaahahaha..... I know that you, readers, are HUNGRY for details about this restaurant. Restoran Silaturrahim opens everyday except Friday and I just went to this restaurant yesterday, 16052009, with my housemate. I tried Nasi Puteh + Kari Ikan + 2 vegetables + telur masin + tembikai and Sunquick Mango. After the first 'suap', I told to my housemate, that THIS is SEDAP (DELICIOUS) and the price is REASONABLE LOW. For my plate, they charged me just RM 7.00 and I didn't mind about the price UNLESS it comes with GOOD QUALITY..... Hhmm..... So gang, what are you waiting for?? Let's go to try some Nasi Ganja............................. Hehehehehehe

Next: Hawkerant and Iced Milo

Geng: Pengembaraan Bermula


It's official!!

Our local film industry is reviving with the release of Geng: Pengembaraan Bermula!
For the first time in my life, i watched a Malay film in theater and came out really proud, and with a big wide smile on my face too! And not only once, but twice!

Of course, it helps greatly when you entered the cinema with no high hope or expectation - oh come on, Malay film?!! Sorry! - but Geng really delivered... and i tell you, it delivered BIG time!!!

Great story line, graphic, sounds, characters, 'acting', did i mention story line?, and best of all, great dialogue - which almost unheard of from a Malay movies, except P.Ramlee's, of course - all mixed up and help Geng become the most enjoyable film you can ever asked, especially for families.

It's hard to find anything you will dislike about the movies. And i tell you, i'm one of the greatest cynic for Malay film industry! I mean, who can resist such cute characters, in the form of Upin & Ipin, and even Rajoo and Sapy! With nearly perfect 3D-animation in a very low budget of merely RM 4 million, i really salute the Les' Copaque team for bringing Geng to theaters. One word: GREAT!!

Oh, wait! i do have one thing i dislike about the movie! The song in the middle of the movie. The scene was playing greatly, as the 'kampung' scenery was shown perfectly and the music, especially from the harmonica fuelled the mood nicely, and suddenly this song came and.. bamm, not good enough...!
But, mind you, that's the closest thing i would able to recall on any negative thought throughout the 1 and 1/2 hour movie!

The best scene? and i'm sure everyone would agree is the part of 'roller-coaster' involving Upin, Ipin, and Rajoo. The suspense, the graphic, and especially the humor?! huu, top-notched! Perfect!!! You know, I chuckle everytime i recall that part!

Ok, i better stop now! This is what happened when i got too excited. Heck, i can write about it non-stop!

Lastly, for what is worth, i would say, we no longer need Saiful Apek... and.. and... who else eh? ha, and the crappy Prof Madya, for our film industry. In fact, with their brand of ill-humored-with-very-bad-storyline-it-makes-me-want-to-puke (sorry for the language) for a movie, they in fact, killed the industry. What we need is these fresh guys (like the Les' Copaque team), willing to try something new and have the sense of what a great movie should be...!

P/S; don't get out too early once the movie finished. Wait for a while...

My close friends would know one obvious fact about me. I hate riddles, teka-teki, whatever. For me, it's too unpredictable! Some riddles just need simple logic to solve, others will require wild imagination. And i somehow, found that very hard to follow. Too far-fetched, i would say.

But, i for one, never short of appreciation for good stuff, especially hillarious ones. So, although, i will never get to answer any riddles that has been thrown to my face, i will always laugh as soon as i was given the answer.

And, i can't remember ever laughed harder than i did recently for these two riddles:
Some of you may have heard of these, so just bear with me and let me have my fun, ok? Hehe.
(To sustain the originality of the riddles, i'll write in Malay)

Kenapa patung Tuhan dalam kuil Hindu, bermata bulat?
Kenapa patung Tuhan dalam tokong Cina, matanya sepet?
Dan, kenapa pula tidak ada piano dalam masjid?

Ok, the last part is weird, but who cares, right? After all, it's just a riddle.
So, here come the other one...

Banyak-banyak binatang, binatang apa ada telur di tengkuk?

So, take a deep breath....
And here ae the answers...

For the first question,

Kenapa patung Tuhan dalam kuil Hindu, bermata bulat?
Kenapa patung Tuhan dalam tokong Cina, matanya sepet?
Dan, kenapa pula tidak ada piano dalam masjid?

The answer is,

Patung Tuhand dalam kuil Hindu bermata bulat, sebab perempuannya semua pakai sari... seksi
Patung Tuhan dalam tokong Cina matanya sepet, sebab, asap dari colok pedihkan mata depa, so, mata jadi sepet, hmmm.
Last sekali, kenapa takde piano dalam masjid? Jawapannya... letak selipar kat masjid pun hilang, ini kan pula letak piano???!!!!!

I remember laughed really hard - even when i write this. Maybe because of the piano, kot.
I asked why piano, and when my friend said he didn't know, i laughed even harder!

So, for the second question,

Banyak-banyak binatang, binatang apa ada telur di tengkuk?

The answer is,



And, i laughed soooo hard, i almost got stomach ache!

Thanks to my good friend Alias for the riddles. Maybe part of why i found the two riddles were very funny because of the way he phrased them, i don't know. But i still remember, i even asked him for more of those!!!

If any one of you have good/fun riddles, do come and share ok. Just don't forget to provide the answer so i could have a good laugh over it, heheh...

Here We Come..

By Mullah

Here we come again..... Election is around the corner. One is in Perak for Bukit Gantang Parlimentary Seat and another is in Kedah for Bukit Selambau State Seat. PAS MP for Bukit Gantang died because of heart attack and the PKR Assemblyman reportedly has resigned from his post. Hhhmm....... After the fiasco in Perak last week, we will encounter another 'election fever' months. Not one but TWO elections at one time.

For me, after reading comments in Malaysian Insider online news portal, one reader's comment still stuck in my mind. One reader said that 'God has spoken' and InsyaALLAH, we will see the hikmah behind these elections. BN and Pakatan Rakyat will go all out to win these prize seats and at the same time, we will see that Datuk Seri Najib Razak will become our 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia in April 2009. Pakatan Rakyat also, under the leadership of de facto leader, Anwar Ibrahim, will strategise new things and methods to win these elections after the political fiasco in Perak last week.
Hhmmmm.... But I afraid that we forgot the one of the IMPORTANT things to do in this tense time that is HOW to overcome this ECONOMIC DOWNTURN that affects every one of us, including the PR and BN hard core supporters. I heard that many factories closed and will be closed in future (including Flextronic) and this will affect us BADLY if no necessary measures take place. Hhhmm... that's all for now... See You......

If people ask me, i would answer,

let them do what they want... for now!
let them savour this 'victory'... for now!
let them celebrate this brief accomplishment... for now!
let them parade their stupidity and foolness... for now!

But if you ask me, what's actually the question?
I might ask you back,

Is it matter? The answers above served about everything that happened in our world right this very minute!

Israel invaded Palestine
BN invaded Perak

The only difference is the religion! And pardon me, even that sometimes, counts so little nowadays...!

Manjung - My Workplace

By Mullah

On this time of writing, Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, 47, ADUN for Pangkor, will become the 11th Perak Menteri Besar after a two day political turmoil in Perak. As I said to my workmate yesterday, that Malaysian politics can put US politics in shame. And he agreed. Hahahahaha. Today writing is about my 1 month living and working in Manjung, Perak, started from 5th January 2009 - 5th February 2009

I started my journey to Manjung on Sunday, 4th January 2009. Driving alone through Meru, Kapar, Jeram and had an hour rest at Kuala Selangor. After 2 hours driving, I reached Sitiawan and then proceed to Lumut, to meet my friend there. Just to share with you that Manjung is a district comprising Seri Manjung, Lekir, Segari, Lumut, Pangkor and Sitiawan. In fact, Manjung is a second fastest growing district after Ipoh in Perak. Apart from that, Manjung has many prominent and 'hot' places like Pasir Panjang: area of Datuk Seri Ir Nizar; Pangkor: area of Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and Lumut: area of Deputy Finance Minister.

My first rented house was with Assistant District Officer (ADO) of Manjung and of courselah, I lived in Government Quaters for 2 weeks before moving to Seri Manjung with my friends. Life rhythm here is medium moving - not too slow like life in kampungs and not too fast like life in Kuala Lumpur. People here enjoy life at the fullest, if I can say that, and enjoy the outdoors more than the indoors. If you're kaki pancing, I can recommend to you several places to go and if you want to go to air terjun, many places are nearby like Ulu Kernas. Hhhmmmm....... Basically, InsyaALLAH, I plan to settle down here with my family and enhance my career life here with the company... Ooh..... I forgot to tell you my company's namelah........The tagline for my company is 'Beyond Boundaries'....... See you................

Political Turmoil in Perak

By Mullah

This week is a political turmoil week in Perak. We can see that this problem rooted back last week, when ADUN Bota, Datuk Nasarudin Hashim, 'jumped ship' to join PKR and then, jumped back to join UMNO yesterday

Yesterday, DPM, Datuk Seri Najib, announced that BN Perak had a simple majority to form new Perak Government with the help from 3 so-called Independents - ADUNs Changkat Jering, Behrang and Jelapang. Pakatan Rakyat Government, led by Datuk Seri Ir Nizar, responded back that BN has cheated and abducted their ADUNs to form new government.... Hhhmm..... So how to solve this problem??? According to Professor Shad Saleem Faruqi, the Palace will play important role to solve this uncertainty once and for all and if you ask me, the best way is to dissolve the Perak State Assembly and call for a fresh election in Perak. So, less than a year, we will have another State Election in Perak and this 'election fever' is not cooling down. End this year, we can expect the Sarawak State Election and many surprises will be out for our 'entertainment'.... Hehehehehehe

When Champion Meets Legend

By Mullah...

Last night was a night to remember for all worldwide tennis fans. Before that, Assalamualaikum to all readers from me and this is my first posting in English. As we predict it, the final match of Australian Open 2009 is a great match in the modern era; between Federer, a legend in the making, and Nadal, the great Champion of the moment

I, as Federer fan, will always respect the challenge from Nadal and his time will come to become a legend in his time. But, for me, Federer is 'the great player of all time' as Vijay, the commentator, said last night in the Starsport. Just a short of 14 Grand Slam titles that equal Pete Sampras' record, Federer has time to make it equal or even break the record. Pete Sampras even declared it in the New Straits Times that Federer will make it 15 Grand Slam titles. Hhmm.......... Enough praise already for Federer. So how about Nadal??? I, as a tennis fan, respect the attitude, on the court and off the court, of Nadal. As the current No 1 tennis player in the world, Nadal, is the undisputed Champion of Roland Galos for 4 consecutive years in a row, from 2005 to 2008. As the title said, he is the Champion and no words can describe it. He has many years in front of him and let see when this 'Matador of Melbourne' becomes a Legend.... Adios.............

Asshole, Australian Open, and President Obama


First of all, pardon me for 'the bizarrest' title for an entry so far yet for this blog. As you can probably see, all three are actually not related and i just want to touch every subject as briefly as i can...
I've to admit, after a very exhaustive 2-3 weeks of watching - and writing - about the bad news of Israel-Palestine issue lately, i feel kinda relieved to write about something else in this blog. Not that the Middle-east issues are far gone by now - because they never will - it just feels so good to write about normal stuff again.

Ok, first, the asshole thing...

Last night, i got an SMS from my good friend, Din a.k.a iceman telling me, "You better pick up or call back... or this is the last time you hear from me again!". And when i looked up, i realized i have about 3 missed calls from him...

So i called him back straight away, and after the normal greetings were over, one of the earliest word i heard from him was "Asshole!". Whoa! Never in my life had anybody called me that, and of course naturally it made me mad!
But about 15 seconds after that, i realized... ouch, maybe i deserved that! Turned out, Din just read this blog and he found out that i was getting engaged almost three weeks ago and it really hurt him that i didn't tell him about it.

I tried to downplay the issue, telling him i actually didn't tell anybody about it, except my bro, Aizzuddin and my housemates. It's no big deal, i said. But he countered back, saying he's not anybody! He's one of my oldest and my best friend! We've known each other for 9 years, for God sake!

And at that, my friends, i felt silent and i completely lost any argument left in me. I realized my mistake and for about 10 minutes after that, i can only listened to him berrating about how unfair and 'cruel' i was. I know he wanted me to feel guilty and i tell you, he's very good at it...!

So, last night i apologized to him couple of times through the phone. But somehow i knew it's not enough. So here, once again, to Din, I am really.. really sorry for being an 'asshole'! You're right. As a friend, i should do better than that. And as a friend, you deserved better than that...

On the bright side, i'm actually lucky he didnt call me 'asshole' in Malay! That will be nightmare, don't you think?

Now on Australian Open...

It has been so long since i last mention about my favourite sport in the whole wide world here, and it's the high time i started mention about it again...
As you may already know, the first Grand Slam in Tennis calendar this year begins with Australian Open which is already under play from yesterday, 19th January until 1st February, next Sunday.

As usual my favourite player is Nadal and as the World No 1 player, the pressure is on him to lift his first Australian Open. The challenge will come from the likes of Federer, Djokovic and Murray and it will be an interesting two weeks to see 'The Big Four' of tennis compete with each other to take the honour of winning the first Grand Slam of 2009.

Lastly on President Obama...

Today is the D-Day for United States of America and may i suggest here, for the world in general...!
Because, this is the day that the President-elect Obama will become President Obama, the 44th US President, replacing the disgraceful and - pardon me for my word here - the shitty, war-lover George H.W. Bush.

While i acknowledge that USA is not in the high list of our favourite country in the world, mostly due to their unexplainable support towards - again, pardon my word here - the shittest country of all, the Israel; we have to admit, what goes on in the US is very vital to the world.

As the most powerful nation in the world - so they called themselves - the president of USA is unarguably the most powerful man in the world. And this man, Barack Hussein Obama is about to become one today...!

I've followed almost every step of this man, rising towards the position he is now, and i can tell you - at least up until now - if there's even a glimmer of hope to see some improvement to Middle East issues, this man may be able to do it. He's fresh, honest, and so far still rational with his policy on America's foreign affairs, which is very important to the rest of the world...

Well, i know, it's too early to tell whether this man is really the Agent of Change and Hope he promised to be. So, together with the rest of the world, i'll wait rather hopefully for this man to make history and to do some good for the rest of the world. I tell you, even if he's only half as good as what he promised to be, we will witness some good changes on the way USA handled the Middle East crisis...

After 22 days and more than 1150 Palestinians lives later, finally Israel agreed to a unilateral cease-fire against Gazans and Hamas.

Sadly however, the Zionist will stay in the Palestinian territories, amidst warning from Hamas to keep fighting until they leave.

I would love to stay optimist and think that at least no more Palestinians will die from the Zionist offensive actions.

But... this is Israel we're talking about!! They are the most despicable human being that lived on earth. They are bloodsucker and children-killer! Which is only a few from a long list of crime they already committed!

This is the time the Arabs and Muslims all around the world to unite and do something before this very fragile truce between Israel and Hamas will be under threat, and the Zionist starts killing again...!!! NOW is the time!

World leaders, Arab leaders, Malaysian leaders, and each one of us, individually; we have to keep the awareness of this issue at full height at all time!

It is the high time we do not repeat our past mistake and our 'hangat-hangat tahi ayam' attitude!

Right now, the sentiment of support-Palestine and hate-Israel, is so high. If we really want to achieve something, there's no better time for it!!
Don't wait until a week or two weeks later... (Just look at the landslide issues last month, hmmm...) Melayu mudah lupa!

That's why, in this opportunity, i want to urge and beg everyone to keep talking about our Palestinian brothers and sisters...

To all bloggers, please dedicate an entry or two to comment and have a say about this issue! Please, my friends!! Any words and discussions will do. InsyaALLAH, The Almighty will accept that small effort as ibadah...

And please.. please.. make a strong statement against the violence of Israel. Please remind people of what had happened, what is happening, and what will undoubtly happen again!

Keep this issue fresh in the mind of our people. In some way, do what the Israeli did with their children! - that the Palestinians/Muslims are no more than animal, and it is halal to kill them!!!

Also, please.. please proceed with Israel/US-boycott campaign! We do not want to contribute in however slightest in their campaign against Muslims and Palestinians, don't we?!! If that means sacrificing our favourite food or product, so be it! Seriously, it's nothing compared to the agony of the Muslims over there...!

And lastly, please continue to pray for the long-waited of Palestine glory and the annihilation of Israel. This last two weeks, we can listen to Qunut Nazilah everywhere. In the mosques. At home. But just like other things, soon it will fade out... until the next war begins...........

O Palestine...


As i write this entry, the latest count of dead body in Palestine has increased to more than 850... and still counting...
And still, there's no sign - nothing at all - that the demonic Zionist will recede or withdraw from Gaza. Instead, they bulk up their army with significant - and very worrying - numbers by day as they increased their air and ground assault towards Hamas and the civilians of Palestine!

Israel Laknatullah will have their large chunk of punishment from ALLAH The Almighty for what they did - and still do - to the Palestinians and to Islam generally. They are the symbols of Satan in this modern world and no word in any language can describe the magnitude of their evildoing.

Curse Israel!!!!!

Curse Zionist!!!!!

Curse their Allies!!!!!

Curse them for what they did to the children, women, and civilians of Palestine!!!!!

AND Curse the Egyptian Government a.k.a the inexplicably rotten Hosni Mubar
ak for not allowing all the helps from all over the world to enter Gaza to help those people!!!!!

ALLAH The Merciful will make them pay for what they did!!!

O My Muslim Friends!!! In the wake of this sad and grieving situation that befallen our brothers and sisters in the Middle East; let us strengthen the resolve of our hatred to Israel and her allies!


Harden our heart towards them as they harden their actions towards the Palestinians!

Sharpen our tongues and criticism toward
s them as they sharpen their weapon for the Palestinians!

Toughen our standing and resolutions towards them as they toughen their doings on the Palestinians!

And Tighten our wallets towards their products and economic prowess as they tighten their grips on the land of Palestine and their claws on the throat of the Palestinians!

Please my friends! Whether we realize it or not, we're in this together. No one is excused! The one who excused him/herself is the one Rasulullah said:

"None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself." - Sahih Bukhari.

(Taken from amirmukhtar blog. thanks Mir!)

Let's pray for them...

They need our prayer...

Let's Boycott!!!


As i write this entry, the death toll of our Palestinian brothers and sisters has increased to more than 650 and counting...
As all the world leaders trying to show that they care (as if they really care!!) about the humanity crisis that is gripping Palestine, nothing seems to be able to halt the movement of Israel regime, which in its tenth days today... and still has no sign whatsoever to stop anytime soon!
Oh, have they no heart?!! Killing all those women and children like mad animals?!! Destroying hospitals and civilian houses like uncivilized heartless being?!! No, i bet they don't! Not after what they have done since thousands years ago until now!
And what the Muslim world do? Stare... maybe feel sorry a little bit and then.. nothing!

Hmm, wrong! We can still do something. However little and insignificant it seems. Let's boycott Israeli and Israeli-related US Companies! Come on my friends! This is the least we can do to help, not to mention the sad truth that it's the only thing we are able to do actually.

Below, i listed down some of the companies. i got the list from PPIM website. Go and have a look if you have time.
  • McDonald
  • Coke Cola
  • Danone
  • Starbucks
  • Maggie
  • Nestle
  • L'Oreal
  • Rexona
  • Kit Kat
  • Sprite
  • Sunkist
  • Intel
  • IBM
  • Gap
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Kleenex
  • Kotex
  • Maybelline
Let's pray to Allah to give strength to the Palestinian to face this battle with Israel Laknatullah...

Please my friends, let's do this! We owe this to our Muslim brothers and sisters out there...

'Happy' New Year 2009?


Last night is the new year's eve and i was one of the thousands of people 'gathered' at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara to 'celebrate' the New Year. Oh, how i wish i wasn't there...!

A meeting with an old friend of mine - Zid from Sabah - turned to half-nigh
tmare... Yeah that was what's in my mind at the time.
After dinner at Dome about 11 pm, the three of us - with Nasri - were then stuck in a sea of people on the street of The Curve. And to be honest, i was sort of claustrophobic last night as we wriggled, squirmed and fidgeted our way out from the thousands of screaming fans as one Chinese singer - i don't know who the hell is the guy! - sang on the stage.

Lucky, no bad incident happened although several push-pull situations occurred, and after about 45 minutes, we safely escaped from the crowd. 45 minutes... for just about 50 meters walking distance! Even in the dark, our faces were flushed and sweaty as we stared at each other while shaking our heads several times. Huu, that was really.. really something, we said to ourselves.

Although we ended up watching the sky for the amazing 'fireworks show' - which can actually be seen from my house not far from there - i know for sure, i don't
want to be there next year or the years after...

The next time i wish to experience such things, may it be at the appropriate place and time
As i said to Nasri soon after our 'great escape', "macam buat umrah, sesaknya!"

Here i attach some pics i snapped in the rush of everything that was ha
ppened. They are a bit blurry, as did my mind and my conscience last night...
