Assallamualaikum w.r.t and Greetings
Its been a very long time since i last visit my blog and was quite surprise to see my blog is still here.
I have been very busy with facebook hehehe
When i go through my previous posts, wah i think its embarrassing but never mind just let it be.
In this posts, I just want to share my most memorable pictures/memory on my visit to Jeju Island
Koreans use small pail and small towel for shower. Look at the picture above. If you are not use to it, bring your own towel.. heee.
My hotel provide breakfast, i think its traditional breakfast in Korea.
Rice porridge, kimchi, kimchi, green algae, bread, strawberry jam and yogurt drink.
We visit the traditional village, the uncle in the picture explained to us that in the old days, the Koreans keep pig pen next to the house, and the toilet is on top of the corner of the pig pen. The pig will eat the faeces.
He then brings us to see the pig pen with the toilet and the pig. I did not take any picture unfortunately.
More Korean food, i love lunch and dinner. Delicious ....
My motel or hotel or inn .. not sure
Some of beautiful scenery around jeju island
beautiful scenery and delicious food .. but i can not afford to shop. three times more expensive compare to my homeland ...

Assallamualaikum w.r.t and greetings dear,
Its been a long time since my last entry. been busy with facebook ..huhu. My husband said if i don't spend so much time on facebooking, i probably finish reading one or two good books which will benefits me more ..
I want to write about the unfortunate incidents fall on my beloved country Malaysia. Our national carrier MH 370 went missing on the 8th March 2014 with 239 people on board.
We have tried our very best to find the missing aircraft and to console the families concerned but our effort was not appreciated. The foreign media ridicules, slander, insult our government and people attack our government from inside and outside Malaysia (this include Malaysian as well - most likely the opposition party).
I think everyone who helped have worked very hard and very sincerely. I don't expect a thank you but insult, slander , bashing etc is totally uncalled for.
Being a small country with medium level technology i suppose, we have requested for help from neighboring countries, as well as country which have the technological means to locate the missing aircraft. In total, we manage to get 26 countries to help us. We are very thankful for the support from these governments.
The search and rescue effort take quite some time, and the stress is quite tremendous especially on the families concerned, and also on Malaysian (the patriotic one like me ..he he) as well.
why am i writing this ..forgot already ..haha
i want to say, through this misfortune i can see and appreciate my moslem brothers and sisters. Some are very religious and perform solat hajat to overcome this ordeal. The moslem bomohs also want to help (they are also moslem eventhough they deviate from the true teaching of islam) and perform strange ritual while citing quranic verses ..hehe. Some moslem are very into technology while others keep saying we are being punished for our sins, and we should mend our ways. Some says, this is Allah way of showing that Allah is greater than any technology and we should go back to Allah for help. Me, i believe we should pray to Allah for help and use the best technology available. And i also believe, there are several moslem like me ..hihi. However, all of us want to help.
What i am trying to say in a very convoluted way is i love the moslem and proud of being one, eventhough moslem can be very exasperating at times.
And on why Malaysian try very hard in this MH 370 incidents, i think we want to show the world that we are good moslem and Malaysian are good ...hehehe. of course this is only my opinion.
p.s.1 we really do pity the passenger of MH 370 and their family though and the help we give are sincere.
p.s2 what i write here is my personal opinion.

Assallamualaikum w.r.t. and Greetings ...
IN THE NAME OF Allaah, THE MOST
GRACIOUS, THE MOST MERCIFUL
Allaah, The Exalted said: " Say you (0 Muhammad ): "This is my way, I invite unto Allaah (i.e. to the Oneness of Allaah - Islamic Monotheism) (with sure know/edge), land whosoever follows me (also must invite others to Al/ah i.e. the Oneness of Allaah - Islamic Monotheism) with sure knowledge. And Glorified and Exalted is Al/ah (above all they associate as partners with Him), and I am not of the polytheists. " (Al Qur'an 12:108)
Moslem is a happy soul ... the reason for this is due to two (2) things: 1. The faith (Aqidah) 2. The prayers (Solat)
1. The Faith ie Aqidah
The connection between the creation and the creator in Islam is most beautiful. The creator is God also known as Allah s.w.t..
Allah describe himself in the Quran
Quran Surah 112 Al-Ikhlas (The Unity)..
Say: He, Allah, is One.
Allah is He on Whom all depend.
He begets not, nor is He begotten.
And none is like Him
Everything comes from Allah s.w.t. ..both good and bad things come from Allah s.w.t.
Quran Al -Anaam 17
And if Allah touches you with harm, none can remove it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He is Able to do all things.
The reason why moslem is a happy soul :) ..
1. The beautiful bond / connection with God Allah s.w.t.
2. The fear of Allah (Allah s.w.t. is most powerful)
Regarding the bad things that happened, If we are contented with what Allah give us (redha), everything that happens (good and bad) will turn out to be good things. Refer to Quran Surah At Taubah 59
Quran Surah At Taubah 59
Would that they were contented with what Allâh and His Messenger (SAW) gave them and had said: "Allâh is Sufficient for us. Allâh will give us of His Bounty, and (also) His Messenger (from alms, etc.). We implore Allâh (to enrich us)."
And my personal favourite is :
(1) La Ilaha Ilallah - There is no (other) God except Allah.
(2)Quran Surah Ali Imran :173
Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)."
** Notes :
** I do not how to express / explain the essence of all the above, However if we master all the above ..we will become strong, confident and achieved peace, tranquility and success .
**However, all these are my personal belief/view and I may make mistake in interpreting the teaching of islam

Assallamualaikum w.r.t. and Greetings
Today is Saturday 24.03.2012 at 22:32 Hr.
My latest observation to date :
1. Everything that happened in our live is not a coincidence.
2. Everything that happened in our live is from Allah s.w.t. (God) and it is a test. We may or may not realize it.
My point is when other people do something unjust/unfair/cruel/etceteras to us .. it is actually a test from Allah s.w.t. (God) to us ..wallahu aklam
Hopefully by knowing that, we know how to handle anything and everything that happened in our live ..
And many times we also become the test for another person(s ). We may or may not realize it ..heehee
NOTE : please note that this article is based on my personal observation and conclusion. I have not checked with the quran or hadith.

Salam w.r.t. and Greetings.
Just to share a few funny incidents which happened to me which is closely related to the power of thinking... May be ..
8.30 am was intructed to attend site meeting which i have no idea of (since i am not involved in the project). so i am just replacing my boss who is not available. mood :(
8.45 am - on the way to my car come across a few people and one person make remark that increase my tension from merely tolerable to dizzying full blown tension. The guy said something like "this is bla..bla ..bla .. bosses sending junior officers to attend meeting with top bosses ..bla..bla..bla..".I retorted back that junior officers must be more aggravated being sent to such meeting.
9.00 am - in very dark mood. decide to use a new route to the site. Made a mistake ..drive straight into an express bus depot and all the way to the end of the bus lane. Got stuck in the bus lane since there is an express bus at the end of the lane waiting for passengers to fill up the bus. Now have to reverse driving to exit from the bus lane and eventually the bus depot ...argh.
9.10 am - my new stress (having entered the express bus lane by mistake) made me forget my old stress (having to attend the site meeting which i do not want to and being critised by another person for attending such meeting i.e. being not the right person to attend bla..bla..bla)
9.20am -decide to laugh about my stress and as my mood reverse, everything become better for me. The meeting was fun and i decide to check the project site .. :)
3.00pm - my new tenant called to ask for EOT to pay the deposit and rent .. mmm ..ok laa.
3.30pm - my Hrmis went wrong .. mmm
I am still in good mood.
I just need Coffee or Caffeine ..
