A year and over hiatus? Well, hellooo!


Salam,

Really it has been awhile (I mean a WHOLE lot while) but I guess ever since I got back in Malaysia I was too caught up with stuffs of schools, life-socials, schools and more of schools that I couldn't be bothered to spare some time to leisurely write, just like I usually did when I was in Cov.

Guess that's pretty much expected, no? Ha.

Well let me just roughly sum up what have you been missing out on (more like what have I been up to lol) for these past years, in forms of pictures :) Hopefully they'll justify my absence cause I really wish I could've come back much sooner and write more. So yay feast for your eyes! *throw snapshots*

Retrospection.


Hearsall Common - January 2013.

For the past few days I'd been running here and there trying to keep myself busy. I went to search for comfort food, comfort breaks and comfort friends away from home in hope that I won't get back to the reality. But the thing with comfort stuffs is that they are just temporary distractions; they are there as attachments, not for mending your problems. I remember roughly the same time last year I was dealing with the similar phase, but I'm not quite sure how I went about and went over it. I wonder. 

But I'm glad that He made me back at home safe and sound regardless how reluctant I was. I think He knows that I will only come to my senses when I'm settled, and guess being back home isn't a bad thing afterall. It gives me time to think. To reflect. To ponder over what had happened and why they were meant to be in those ways. 

'When we miss a plane, lose a job, [lose a person], or find ourselves unable to marry the person we want, have we ever stopped to consider the possibility that it may have been for our own good? Allah tells us in the Quran: "...but perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.' (Al-Baqarah: 216). Yet is so difficult to look beyond the surface of things. And it takes great strength to see beyond the illusion, to a deeper truth - which we may or may not understand. 

Often Allah takes things away from us only to replace them with something greater.'

- Yasmin Mogahed, 2012.


Whatever the lesson is, I believe that things happen for reasons. And above all, He knows best. :')






Meh.



Salam and hi,

I'd been on a hiatus for quite awhile. Been working on my other blogs and left this one unattended for months. Now that I'm finally having my 5 weeks break, I think at least this blog deserves a new hi-back entry. A short one.

It's the 1st of April. And right now I'm on my 3rd Easter break, at home in Coventry. Since I don't seem to have much plans for this holiday I might spend the rest of the break reading, finishing my books, baking or cooking something new. I might read Holden Caulfied again, for the 3rd time. I miss him like whole lot. That kid. :) Or might go on a cat hunting around Earlsdon to find some furrballs to play with. Anyway it's Easter, I should go out and play and laugh. But it's just that the weather is being topsy turvy like mad it puts me off. It puts everyone off, in fact.  -.-' Oh such a bore. 

Once I'm done deciding what to do with my break I'll let you know. For now, I'll read some books. 

Have a good Easter break everyone. 
Wherever you are, just take care and stay safe.

This.is.deep. T.T


Rasulullah (saw) bersabda: 

"Sesungguhnya Allah SWT murka pada tiap-tiap orang yang keras hatinya (orang yang tidak mahu mendengar nasihat dan tunjuk ajar tentang agama) lagi sombong (berbangga dengan dirinya, darjatnya, kedudukannya dan segala sesuatu yang dia merasa yang dia lebih baik dari orang lain dan menolak kebenaran), iaitu orang yang senang di kalangan orang ramai dah suka bertengkar di pasar,  (mereka ini), seperti bangkai di malam hari (kerana tidak bangun solat malam, berzikir, meminta ampun kepada Allah SWT, dan membaca Al-Quran) dan seperti kaldai ketika siang hari (kerana hanya memikirkan tentang makan, lupakan tanggungjawab terhadap Allah SWT dah lupa dan lalai mengerjakan perintah dan suruhan). Pandai (bijak) dalam ilmu dunia, namun bodoh (jahil) dalam ilmu akhirat." [Hadith Ibn Hibban]

Mesir, lain kali aku datang.


"Kalau ada rezeki, InsyaAllah tak ke mana." (Abah, 2012)

2 3 hari jugak contemplated nak cancel winter trip to Egypt atau tak sebab dah lama mengidam nak pegi sana. Tapi recent crisis in Middle East kinda put me off sebab firstly, Abah was against the idea of me going there and he's really worried about my safety.  Secondly, my friends in Alexandria pun cakap the same thing:  Cairo still OK masih selamat untuk tourists sebab jauh from Gaza but they did not recommend Sinai cause it's next to the Israeli's border, and with the riots are still going on, it's really really risky. 

When the Palestinians and Israeli's finally agreed for a ceasefire yesterday I was soo positive that things are going to be OK, and that I might just as well continue with the plan to Egypt. But then when I got home  from a long Friday and read about today's news from the Telegraph about today's riots in Tahrir Square in Cairo over Morsi's recent decree, I know things gonna get ugly for at least a week or 2 in there. So that was when I finally decided that I should forget Giza & Sphinx for my winter. 

So now that the flights are cancelled, no camels no desert for December, looks like I'll have the winter all for myself. Hahah!
