Winter and it's cold and it's chilly and my luggage's giving me a hard time.


So mad this undersized cabin luggage is good for nothing! Ughh. My previous hand luggage is barely usable cause the poor handle's broken. Look like I hafta carry this frickin box all by myself to the post office tomorrow. With hands. In this kind of weather. GREAT.

Not that I have an option -.-



P/S: Luggage Y U NO BIGGER?!

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!

Fooding vs learning?



Wait till you're deadly starving, you'll appreciate your food more. Wait till your students struggling, they'll appreciate your feedback more. 


You're fungry, yes; but you might not want a big massive chuck of just rice on your place to fill in your empty tummy. Talking from experience, a starvy stomach might crave for a colourful variety rather than a qualitative one-typed quantity. My ideal portion of perut kampong would be of nasi, bbq chicken, a cute scoop of fried veges. and these would defo do the trick. 


The basic same principle applies to learning, you might want to reconsider giving the huge chunks of same-typed feedback provision to your struggling students. A little bit of everything is always the best (I concur). Go for a little tangy oral feedback mixed in a mild plenary or discussion sessions. And add a pinch of peer evaluation pepper for an add-up acquisition taste - your learners will discover the savour at its best. 




I know this seems to be the furthest from legitness sense but the least, that's the learning logic. 






P/s: I'm friggin starving.

Grrrr.

I'm so mad at myself right now. I can stay all night long watching The Voice and Running Man till morning but tonight I can't even manage to finish half of the chapter from this book. Look at the watch, it's not even past the midnight yet! *rage*

Slapping my face off (it hurtss), but it just didn't work on me. Right now I'm having my third cuppa and caffeine is yet to be seen kickin in.

A quarter passed 10. 

If my next cuppa doesn't do the work, please someone just shoot me dead on ma face.

Dinner with Raja Kapoor x

Cooking sambal for coconut rice has always been my massive faux pas. So when I do cook one, I think it's best to keep it remembered (though its taste ... *insert negative adjectives*)


 Nasi lemak is best eaten with telur goreng, I think. Prolly cause it's bigger in size lol.


 Dessert: Nini cokelat celup. Celup! Celup!


Sambal nasi lemak = EPIC FAIL -_-"



Carta Nasi Lemak Di Hatiku (this isn't a song title)

#1 Nasi Lemak Kak Bom kat luar maktab Ipoh.
#2 Nasi Lemak Sambal Kerang pasar malam Pulau Duyong, KT
#3 Mom's Nasi Lemak (lauk ikan aye)
#4 Mana-mana nasi lemak berlauk ikan & sotong
#5 Nasi Lemak FREE (regardless of its lauk. Bila free automatik sedap)
.........
#10 Mana-mana nasi lemak bersambal bilis (bebilis dalam sambal)

Thanks for bringing me home :')



I was so far from You, yet to me You were always so close.
I wandered lost in the dark, I closed my eyes towards the signs,
You put me in my way,
I walked every day, further and further away from You.
Oooo Allah you brought me home, I thank You with every breath I take.

......

Allah I wanna thank You,
I wanna thank You for all the things that you've done,
You've done for me through all my years I've been lost,
You guided me from all the ways that were wrong,
And did you give me hope.

O Allah I wanna thank You,
I wanna thank You for all the things that you've done,
You've done for me through all my years I've been lost,
You guided me from all the ways that were wrong,
I wanna thank You for bringing me home.

Alhamdulillah. All praises to Allah.

Homesick gara-gara google location rumah sendiri. Heh.



Buat kesekian kalinya setelah hampir 7 bulan menetap di UK untuk pengajian tahun ke 2, saya menyerah kalah dan mengaku homesick tahap tujuh petala langit malam ini, tepat pada pukul 12.28 pagi. Semuanya bermula dengan Google Map untuk mencari alamat sahabat yang menetap di Kuala Kubang Kerian, KB. Dan sekarang saya rasa seperti ingin terbang pulang & tidur di atas katil sendiri di rumah. Dan makan nasi lemak di pagi hari bersama teh tarik. Dan mendengar mak berleter sebab adik bangun lambat ke sekolah. Dan menonton Spongebob Squarepants dengan Cenna sambil menjamu pisang goreng kelak abu yang ada biji :S Tidak dinafikan juga keinginan hati yang melonjak-lonjak untuk mandikan kucing gemok yang pemalas kat rumah dan bermain dengan anak-anak buah yang baru.

Ya, jadi begitulah dilemma hati saya sekarang walaupun tak sedar diri assignment masih belum siap. Tak ape, mari lah kita layan perasaan kemas notes sambil dengar lagu raya dulu. 



Sekiannn.

:S


Aku kata "astaghfirullah" tapi hati masih gemar akan maksiat.
Aku kata "wa atubu ilaih" tapi jasad masih melakukan dosa yang sama.
Aku kata "wa nadimna ya Allah" tapi kesilapan lalu masih ku ulangi.

Aku kata"subhanallah" tapi aku tak mampu menghayatinya.
Aku kata "alhamdulillah" tapi aku masih tidak bersyukur dengan kurniaanNya.
Aku kata "Allahuakbar" tapi cintaku lebih kepada dunia.

Aku kata "ma fi qalbi ghairullah" tapi masih ada ruang di hatiku untuk insan yang tidak halal.
Aku kata "aku tak layak ke syurga, tapi aku tak sanggup ke nerakaMu," namun aku hidup di dunia seakan-akan aku kuat untuk rasa pedih api neraka.

Aku kata aku ingin mendekatiMu,
Namun amalku tak seiring dengan kata-kataku.

Aku malu dengan sepasang mata kurniaanMu ini,
Kerana air mata yang mengalir seakan-akan sia-sia,
Aku malu dengan tangan yang sudah lelah mengelap air mata,
Kerana tingkah laku pemiliknya yang tidak menggambarkan kesal,
Bahkan aku malu dengan sang burung yang berkicau,
Kerana aku insan yang dinodai dosa,
Sedang sang burung tidak disentuh walau sekelumit dosa...

Birmingham with them girls.

Sushi trip to Birm with house mates, Along and Kak Yati, last Thursday. At last, we had someone dear from Malaysia to celebrate the Easter break with us. :) Nothing fancy I'm just gonna share some snapshots and let them all do the talking! xxx


 (I think I'm starting to like using X-Large pictures for my blogspot really.)


Kak Yati (middle) in her Chloe's model pose. LOL


If it weren't Along asking, I didn't know Woktastic has non alcoholic sweet soy sauce really. 


 16 plates: Probably the biggest self achievement in life ever.


Miso-soup-trick: Eat the salmon slices and throw the rest of the rice chunks into the soup. It works! :3


Sony focal lens was throwing tantrums the whole day I almost banged the whole body on wall -_-'


Lightroom 4 experimentation. With Along as the model. 


 Trash.


Another trash. *delete*


Us :) 


Photowalking around Birm after hours spent at Woktastic. Kasi can tourists camwhore pula :)


But still, these three vainpots...



Victoria Square, Birmingham.


 Rainy and sunny evening within an hour. Subhanallah :)


Birmingham Cathedral. 


p/s: Wishing you two a safe & sound journey home and thanks for everything! :D

My prayers are with you :)



Seronok sangat tengok rakan-rakan Warwick yang lain tengah busy packing dan buat persiapan terakhir untuk menunaikan umrah this Monday :) Jealous pun adaaa. Walaupun saya tak berkesempatan untuk join, saya doakan yang terbaik untuk mereka semua dan berdoa agar Allah swt permudahkan segala urusan mereka ke Tanah Suci. Moga selamat pergi dan pulang, InsyaAllah :') To those yang bawa doa rakan-rakan dari bumi UK dan Malaysia, saya ucapkan terima kasih banyak-banyak dan mendoakan yang sama untuk kalian. Moga Allah swt balas jasa dan budi baik you guys semuaa :') 



p/s: Tak sabar nak tunggu turn diri sendiri pergi lawat Rasulullah swt pulak! InsyaAllah, soon. Aminnn :D

Grieve not, Allah swt is with us :)


If you put Allah swt first, you'll never be the last. 





Up to no good.

It's been weeks so hi to the fives back. The 'One Day One Cake' campaign's still on but that one shall come later, the updates.


I don't really have much to say tonight but it's just that I somehow feel that I sort of lagging behind stuffs and am totally up to no good for the past few weeks. The ultimate laziness of living a sluggish life...blurghh, sure I'm a total loser. Besides Running Man and dramas and Gossip Girl eps, I see no improvements in writing and reading, what more in speaking... -____-"


Anyways, I still owe you some snapshots taken in last Feb and March. I'll start with the previous Warwick MNight 2012.

Lookin forward for a bigger event next year! :)
