Dear blog,

I'm so sorry that I had abandoned U for so long....From March till April. Firstly, my lappy broke down due to the Window crash.huhu....There goes my rm50 at PAS. Then, there were so many things that I have to deal with within this short period oftime.

I thought that I haven't post anything for just 2weeks, but it seems that it has been more than a month.Hmmmm...what should I post for the survival of this blog??

Actually, things are running smoothly within March till April. All of my subjects for the current semester have all sort of assessments----Quizzes, meetings, Projects, CoCos and many more...Thank God that I managed to survive all this.

Maybe I have a personal matters to be settled with one of my team members. And facing the test, I made a few glaring mistakes due to my own careless mistakes....I'm feeling sorry for myself.

Actually, I one my friend had faced one of the hardest part of his life. He was so depressed and he came to me with tears on his cheek. I was so shocked coz he was such a great person that I knew.

He text me on FB and try to share his thoughts with me, and I as a friend willingly to be there for him. He kept on saying that he was facing the roughest time of his life, but he didnt mentioned what was the thing is all about.

I cancelled my trip to KL to keep on comforting him...

After 2 days, he managed to wake up from his downliness, but he still not saying the rel situation to me...

I will wait till the day come....

Good luck in my Mandarin class today...

Oh My Life

Setelah sekian lama tidak menulis blog dalam bahasa Melayu, biarlah kali ini coretan memenuhi masa dgn aplikasi bahasa kebangsaan dalam kehadiran singkatan2 biasa.

Minggu ni mmg mgu yg agak lembap bagi aku, maklum la cuti 1mgu yg singkat, jadi utk start balik enjin nak study tu mmg makan masa. Hari Isnin kuliah bjalan seperti biasa dan alhamdulillah, wpun byk rintangan dan cubaan, tapi akhirnya kumpuln aku (bsama Nad, Emi n Bahari)telah berjaya melakukan pembentangan dan menhantar tugasan Cik Bulan. Lega 1 perkara.

Selasa-Mendengar dan menilai dgn teliti presentation dari rakan2....Bagus btol sumber diorang, walhal aku cari hari tu mcm nak giler taw. huhu.....Tapi petang mmg x boleh blah. Kelas Mr Santa menyebabkan aku terlelap seketika sewaktu dia duk berceramah kat depan. Dah la aku x salin pon tugasan tu coz aku sampai lewat, then nak kena hantar mgu depan. wah....harap2 dapat la aku mengahbiskan pembacaan 'Ladang Binatang' dan 'Antara Tikus2 dan Lelaki'......Berat lagi kepala aku.Petang g pasar malam....Burp....

Rabu-Kelas Mr Rizal mcm biase, mendengar presentation yg aku sendiri agak blur.Maklum la, lewat lagi. Cumanya yang menarik adalah utk BEL, kami ada assessment discussion dalam group, y dianggotai oleh Bahari, Pamiey, Meri, Iskandar, Safura dan juga Anis. Aku selaku Chairperson tpakse amek sikap tgu dan lihat kerana perlu jadi se'neutral' yg mungkin utk elakkan bias. Kan best klu aku dapat jadi panel......Xpe la, utk the real meetings we will ask Safura to be the Chaiperson, aku plak jadi sub-ordinates....
Habis kelas aku g gunting rambut, then g beli barangan keperluan kat Tesco....Ajak2 org xda yg nak g, jadi biarlah aku naik bus jer...lega dapat shopping

Malamnya aku ada koko....semakin menarik koko ni....Hopefully I can get an A for this....

When People Know Nothing Saying Something....

Persuasion, not compulsion

When federal laws unambiguously prohibit whipping or caning of women, religious laws must not be allowed to do the opposite.

ONE of the small things that I am grateful for is that I cannot be legally whipped or caned for any offence any more. Yes, there are criminal penalties which can specify whipping, but not for those over 50, I am told. Sometimes being old(er) is an advantage.

The other reason that I won’t be legally whipped is that I am not a Muslim and therefore my personal behaviour is not subject to syariah courts, which can hold me liable for offences such as drinking alcohol and have me caned.

For me and for millions of Malaysians of all races and religions, Feb 9, 2010, was a sad, black day in the history of our country. On that day, three women were caned legally for the first time ever in this country. They, all Muslims, were caned for engaging in illicit sex, an offence under syariah law, it was announced.

It is shocking that such sentences are being meted out for such offences. While religious laws may allow for such sentences, it is possible for judges to mete out lower sentences, especially when such “offences” are of a very personal nature and harm no one else.

When there are loopholes in religious laws which allow such punishment out of all proportion to the “crime” committed, and which go against the sensibilities of most Malaysians, then it is incumbent upon the Government of the day to use the legislature to do the needful. Otherwise it abdicates its responsibility.

Illicit sex means sex out of wedlock and if we are all not hypocrites, we will admit that it happens all the time, among both Muslims and non-Muslims. To prescribe caning for such an offence is something that most Malaysians are likely to consider just too much.

It also opens the door for caning for more minor offences in the eyes of religious officials, such as drinking alcohol. In fact one Muslim woman, who has refused to appeal her case, is currently awaiting a caning sentence to be carried out after she was found guilty of drinking alcohol.

That case attracted international attention and made it to the front page of two international financial dailies – The Wall Street Journal and The Financial Times – on the same day last year. The current case, announced on Wednesday, is already beginning to attract world attention.

With three women already having been caned for illicit sex, the way has been paved for more caning of women in the future. That will not endear Malaysia to Malaysians, let alone foreigners who are inevitably going to equate us with the Taliban. And who can blame them?

And are we going to go further down the slippery road and cane women for dressing immodestly too, as has been done in some countries?

There are already indications that Malays, especially women, are migrating and leaving their homeland, not because they don’t have opportunities here but because as Muslims, their personal freedom is restricted – and there is danger that it will be curtailed even more.

Yes, it has been said the three women did not suffer any cuts or bruises following the caning but that is scant consolation to those who have to undergo such humiliating punishment on top of the intrusion into their personal affairs.

As if the caning was not bad enough, alarmingly they spent months in prison. One of them is still serving her jail sentence and will be released only in June.

All three were found guilty of committing illicit sex by the Federal Territory Syariah High Court, which issued the caning order between December last year and last month. Perplexingly, they were not made public at that point of time. The public had no idea of the caning before it was done.

Also, it was not clear if the women had exercised their full rights under syariah law by appealing the court’s decision.

These are behaviours which should not be treated as if they were criminal offences; but they have been. The offenders have not only been caned but also jailed, which is rather harsh punishment for something which did not harm anyone else and was done in privacy and behind closed doors.

This is clear indication that there are laws in our statute books – both syariah as well as civil – which are outdated and need to be revised in keeping with the times and the recognition that individuals have personal rights.

Personal behaviour between consenting adults that do no physical harm to them and to others should not be legislated. This is in keeping with the development of personal rights throughout the world, and anything that takes away these rights is a step backwards.

Religion is open to interpretation, man interprets it and man can – and does – make mistakes.

Even if religious rules are flouted, we should have a system which does not mete out punishment for offences, and focus instead on rehabilitation and counselling. That will be in keeping with the universal tenet that there is no compulsion when it comes to religion.

Custodial and punitive sentences by religious courts should be limited via statutes because personal behaviour of adults is often involved and there is no hurt or harm to any others arising from such behaviour.

Religion is about persuasion not compulsion, about faith not certainty, and that is the way we should keep it. Otherwise, bigotry is going to get in the way and we won’t be following the tenets of religion but of those who choose to interpret it the way they want to.

We have all seen what happens when religion – no matter what religion – is carried to extremes and hijacked by bigots. We don’t want public flogging, we don’t want arms chopped off, we don’t want people to be stoned to death, and we don’t want people to be burned at the stake.

We have already moved way past that. Let’s not allow a small number of religious bigots to take us back into the dark ages. And for that, we all need to stand up and speak up when our individual rights are trampled upon.

Managing editor P. Gunasegaram is appalled by the number of sins committed in the name of God.

Terkenang akan dikau....


Sesungguhnya tidak ada yang lebih menyayatkan
dari melihat bangsaku dijajah
Tidak ada yang lebih menyedihkan
dari membiarkan bangsaku dihina
Air mata tiada ertinya
sejarah silam tiada maknanya
sekiranya bangsa tercinta terpinggir
dipersenda dan dilupakan

Bukan kecil langkah wira bangsa
para pejuang kemerdekaan
bagi menegakkan kemuliaan
dan darjat bangsa
selangkah beerti mara
mengharung sejuta dugaan
Biarkan bertatih
asalkan langkah itu yakin dan cermat
bagi memastikan negara
merdeka dan bangsa terpelihara
air mata sengsara
mengiringi setiap langkah bapa-bapa kita
Tugas kita bukan kecil
kerana mengisi kemrdekaan
rupanya lebih sukar dari bermandi
keringat dan darah menuntutnya
Lagi pula apalah ertinya kemerdekaan
kalau bangsaku asyik mengia dan menidakkan,
mengangguk dan membenarkan,
kerana sekalipun bangganya negara
kerana makmur dan mewahnya,
bangsaku masih melata
dan meminta-minta di negaranya sendiri
Bukan kecil tugas kita
meneruskan perjuangan kemerdekaan kita
kerana rupanya selain memerdekakan,
mengisi kemerdekaan itu jauh lebih sengsara
Bangsaku bukan kecil hati dan jiwanya
bukankah sejak zaman berzaman
mereka menjadi pelaut, pengembara
malah penakluk terkemuka?
Bukankah mereka sudah mengembangkan sayap,
menjadi pedagang dan peniaga
selain menjadi ulama dan
ilmuan terbilang?
Bukankah bangsaku pernah mengharung
samudera menjajah dunia yang tak dikenal
Bukankah mereka pernah menjadi
wira serantau yang tidak mengenal
erti takut dan kematian?
Di manakah silapnya hingga bangsaku
berasa begitu kecil dan rendah diri?
Apakah angkara penjajah?
Lalu bangsaku mulai
melupakan kegemilangan silam
dan sejarah gemilang membina empayar
Tugas kita belum selesai rupanya
bagi memartabat dan
memuliakan bangsa
kerana hanya bangsa yang berjaya
akan sentiasa dihormati
Rupanya masih jauh dan berliku jalan kita
bukan sekadar memerdeka dan mengisinya
tetapi mengangkat darjat dan kemuliaan
buat selama-lamanya
Hari ini, jalan ini pasti semakin berliku
kerana masa depan belum tentu
menjanjikan syurga
bagi mereka yang lemah dan mudah kecewa
Perjuangan kita belum selesai
kerana hanya yang cekal dan tabah
dapat membina mercu tanda
bangsanya yang berjaya
Dr. Mahathir Mohamad

SUBANG JAYA 21 Jan. - Sudah tiga tahun, Tumi Wongsoruju tidak bertemu anak perempuan tunggalnya yang membawa diri tanpa sebarang berita ke Semenanjung.

Jarak yang jauh ditambah pula dengan kesempitan hidup, membuatkan wanita berusia 52 tahun yang tinggal di Kuching, Sarawak itu tidak berupaya mencari anak kesayangannya.

Namun kerinduan yang tidak tertanggung lagi, akhirnya mendorong Tumi berhutang dengan saudara-mara bagi membeli tiket penerbangan ke Kuala Lumpur untuk menjejaki anaknya.

Berbekalkan duit poket RM150 dan alamat sebuah kawasan perumahan di Serdang dekat sini, dia menyusuli anak perempuannya itu.

Membuang rasa malu dan takut, Tumi yang berasal dari Taman Duranda Emas di Jalan Kuching-Serian memberanikan diri menagih simpati orang ramai untuk membantu mencari rumah anaknya yang berusia 33 tahun.

Setelah puas bertanya, dia yang tiba di Semenanjung kelmarin berjaya menemui anak kesayangannya itu hasil bantuan orang ramai dan anggota dari Balai Polis Seri Kembangan, malam tadi.

Namun, perasaan teruja dan gembira bertemu anak yang cukup dirindui bertukar menjadi kenangan pahit yang tidak mungkin dilupakan sepanjang hayatnya.

Tumi bukan sahaja dihalau bahkan tidak diakui sebagai ibu oleh anak perempuan dan menantunya.

Biarpun bersungguh-sungguh meyakinkan mereka dengan menunjukkan sijil kelahiran anaknya, wanita itu dan suaminya tetap berkeras enggan mengaku Tumi sebagai ibu.

Terkilan dengan sikap anaknya itu, Tumi yang tidak mempunyai saudara-mara di sini akhirnya berputus asa dan bersetuju mengikut anggota polis ke Balai Polis Seri Kembangan.

Simpati dengan nasib Tumi, wartawan Utusan Malaysia dan Kosmo! bersama jurugambar sepakat berkongsi mengeluarkan wang untuk membeli tiket penerbangan dan duit belanja bagi membolehkan dia pulang ke kampung halamannya hari ini.

Dengan kerjasama anggota dari Balai Polis Seri Kembangan, Tumi berjaya mendapat tiket penerbangan pulang ke Kuching menaiki pesawat AirAsia pukul 7.40 malam ini.

Sementara itu, Tumi ketika ditemui dengan berlinangan air mata memberitahu, selain mengubati kerinduan, tujuan dia datang ke Semenanjung adalah untuk memujuk anaknya itu supaya pulang bersamanya ke Kuching.

Katanya, ini bagi menyelesaikan urusan tuntutan hak penjagaan cucu lelakinya hasil perkahwinan anak perempuannya itu dengan suami pertama.

"Sebelum berkahwin dengan suami sekarang, anak saya pernah mendirikan rumahtangga dengan seorang lelaki berketurunan Bidayuh.

"Mereka mempunyai seorang anak yang kini berusia 13 tahun. Kanak-kanak itu dijaga oleh saya selama 11 tahun sebelum diambil oleh bekas menantu yang mendakwa sudah memeluk Islam selepas mereka bercerai," katanya.

Tumi berkata, dia nekad menuntut hak penjagaan cucu kesayangannya itu kerana bimbang akidah kanak-kanak itu terpesong memandangkan cucunya kini tinggal bersama keluarga bekas menantunya yang beragama Kristian di Kampung Tijirak, Kuching.

Katanya, anak perempuannya itu merupakan anak tunggalnya hasil perkahwinan dengan suami pertama. Perkahwinannya dengan arwah suami kedua yang merupakan bekas tentera berasal dari Lenggong, Perak, tidak dikurniakan cahaya mata.

Tumi yang tinggal seorang diri dan menghidap sakit buah pinggang memberitahu, mereka tidak pernah berselisih faham namun dia terkejut apabila anaknya menghilangkan diri bersama suami barunya ke Semenanjung tiga tahun lalu dan langsung tidak menghubunginya sehingga kini.

"Biarpun sedih mengenangkan anak kesayangan yang dikandung selama sembilan bulan enggan mengaku saya sebagai ibu tetapi saya tetap memaafkannya dan berharap dia kembali ke pangkuan saya satu hari nanti.

"Malah, saya ada membawa sepasang baju kurung baru dan sehelai selendang untuk dihadiahkan kepadanya," katanya yang tidak dapat menyembunyikan rasa terkilan dengan kejadian itu.


I hope that I wont be that foolish girl

Happy moments.....

It was a very memorable night today. After we had our dinner somewhere in Section 11, we are quite hazy on our next agenda of the night.

So to burn our calories, we decided to go for karaoke at Ole2 Sec 18. This was the 1st time that we had Jeme in our car, enjoying dinner together and went for a few songs at the toilet (Karaoke Jamban la)

WOW!!!! 11 songs were really a challenge for us. We had been singing most of the recent Malaysia songs such as 'Masih Jelas', Harapan, Dan Sebenarnya....and many more.

TQ to Azman, Bhari and Amrie for making my day.....

Nights fellas!!!!=)

I Hate My Day!!!!

The situation that I'm referring to would be yesterday.

My class started early in the morning up until 12noon at the faculty. i can put my concentration upon the lectures and I dont know why.

Then I dashed to pusat Kesihatan UiTM upon my weekly checkups on my high blood pressure. Praise to Allah, everything seems to be fine without anything suspicious. Well...i am control on my dietary taking everyday, coz i have to save a lot of money b4 the allowances *ka-ching*

I help myself a plate of plain rice with tomyam at PKNS as i have to sent my letters on my medication back to my hometown(What a tiring journey!!!). Within Allah's will, I had been blessed to go and pay my tithes aka Zakat at the Pusat Zakat Negeri Selangor. Alhamdulillah....may I have a peaceful mind and being able to do it again next year.

The waiting for the bus to Seksyen 17 was a tiring moments. T529 was nowhere to be found till 2.15pm.....WTF!!!!A lot of my time had been wasted here....if only i have my own car....

When i reached INTEC, i put myself in the library to indulge with all the journals that we should be finding in groups. Huhu....what to do....

My Day Out

After a while staying in College and going for classes, yesterday was the day that i had it all just for me. I went to the UiTM Health Center to do my BP checking and i met the doc as my cough was getting worse. But unfortunately, I was having a fever.....Am I???? and my BP was ok.....Off to PKNS.

PKNS: The Post Office was jammed with people, and i have to wait more than 50 people that came b4 me. But it's ok, as long as i know my bonus for ASB. Alhamdulillah, I will save it up for my 2nd degree later on. Then I went to Mydin Sec 17 to do my shopping. Came back at 6pm.

At 8.30pm, went out with Laily to Ali's Corner as our routine meetings. But the shocking thing is that Hanis called her saying that she wanted to meet us at Pok Li. Ery and Bashir was also present. We had a nice chat, revealing back the old good memories of bing a school students. Playing UNO and everything, but the issues of our reunion come into place.

Well...let just the time decide when will all of us have the opportunity to meet each other again....I LOVE all of my friends....May Allah bless us all!!!

Part 4 2010

Alhamdulillah...Within Allah's will, I had the ability to come back to UiTM Shah Alam to continue my studies. Well...everything seems to be fine now, but have not meet all of the lecs as it is still the early part of the sem. I had been lucky to book all of my books for this sem from my friend(now a senior) which i had known her since the years of matriculations.

Personally, i would say that I had homesicks earlier, as i was the one who had taken care of my Grandma (Wan) during the break. I had tried my best to fulfill all of her wishes, and being far away from her is not an easy tasks. I pray to Allah that He'll grant her (Zainab Sulaiman)with a good health, a healthy minds and let her be under His blessing.

I am also quite flattered that I have friends that can always help me especially upon the transportation factors. As most of you did't know, I failed to pass my license test b4, so my bro will not get me a motorbike. It has been a tough life in Shah Alam. It would be a big tasks to board the UiTM buses as it doesnt follow its own schedule, but Meri n pamiey had borrowed their siblings transport just to let me n Berry take a ride too.....Their deeds will only can be repay by Allah....Amin...

Task are see U all next post...Bubye....=)
