A Humbling Experience

Dear all,

I believe we have to work and play hard. 
We have to experience life and live it to the fullest.To work as if we are going to live long, and to pray as if we are going to die tomorrow.

When I was in Tarragona, a place they called the Balcony of the Mediterranean, I heard a faint voice of someone reciting Quran after Suboh in my next room. I was so surprised. In my four days in Spain, there were hardly Muslims around us. Therefore, chances of hearing someone reciting the words of God in a hotel room in Spain was indeed very slim. We listened harder. The recitation was steady and composed. It made us longed to hear more. It made us feel safe and secure..

(To be continued)

God Almighty

Dear all,

I was still in Spain when I wrote this entry. Truly humbled with the experience I was in. Amazed by the beauty of it.
I wish you too will be able to travel far someday. Not to show off to others that you have been to other places. But to realize how beautiful is the creation of God, the Almighty. To enable us to appreciate our country more because we come to understand that nothing in this world is perfect. And to know that life has a lot more to offer other than wealth.

From Spain with Love

Tired of exams?Think are indeed lucky!

Dear all,

I was trying very hard to finish my power point presentation for my upcoming conference and yet I failed to do so. After spending days trying to finish my workload and personal errands, I have to admit, I am now running out of passion to finish this last piece of work.
I needed inspiration...
Or perhaps I have already started missing you guys hehehe :-)
Suddenly I remembered my blog which I have personally dedicated to all of you.
And so, tonight I shall send in an entry before my departure day.
Here it goes.

I want you to know that I totally understand your plight.
Your endless assignments, quizzes and tests are killing your spirits, burning your creative minds while in the pursuit of your first undergraduate degree.
I am not sure whether it is due to the type of courses that you are in (which is science based)but believe me dear..... SEIZE THIS MOMENT .....and live every minute of it.

Surprise? Why do I say so? Because trust me, what you are experiencing now will never come twice in your life (unless of course, you pursue your study to a higher level).
Even that wont be the same. Cause at that time, the challenge is even greater with your commitment to your family and working life.
This is indeed the best time of your life. In the spirit of EAP, (you know what I mean)
these are my arguments hehehehehe.
Firstly, no matter how tired you are, you can simply doze off. You don't have to worry whether your child will later wake you up from your slumber cause he or she is thirst for milk.
Second, you don't have to deal with the load of laundry which will then require you to iron, fold and keep them in three perhaps four separate drawers.
Third, thank God you don't have a refrigerator to manage in order to make sure there is enough food for everyone in a family. Whether your sauce, eggs or fresh vegetables have run out, this is still non of your business.
Fourth, you wont experience moments like this. You are about to OPEN that lecture notes or reference book, when suddenly the baby will scream for attention or it is time to change a wet nappy.Hem.........what do you think? Enough arguments guys?? Any counter-argument?

Therefore, study hard and don't grumble.
Remain steady til the finishing line.
Because where you ARE right now, would ONE day be, one of the best time in your life! Cheers.
