kecantikan seorang wanita

Jauh melebihi pemandangan terindah di alam fana
Jauh melebihi puisi terindah di dunia
Jauh melebihi segala pemandangan dilihat mata
Jauh melebihi segala yang mampu ditulis pena

Tiada yang mampu menandingi
Tiada yang mampu mengalahi
Samada hari ini, esok atau berabad lagi
Keindahan keagungan ciptaan Ilahi

Tiadakah kau tahu
Tanyalah segala tuan si hamba
Tiada keindahan di dunia ini yang mampu
Mengalahi kecantikan seorang wanita.

How to quit smoking .

We come to the age old question of: How to quit smoking.

I was a heavy smoker. A true legend. I used to smoke a pack a day. 20 sticks of ciggies. Sometimes more. If I was hanging out with the boys, one pack would be gone in a few short hours. About 24 days ago, I decided to quit smoking. So I did. I didn't stop gradually. I stopped immediately.

So how did I quit smoking?

A. Nicotine patch.
B. Nicotine gum.
C. Chew pen.
D. Khidmat Bomoh
E. Non of the above.

The answer is E, non of the above. Here's how I did it.

I woke up from a nap. I looked outside the window. In front of my house is a field with a playground smack in the middle. The sky was bright blue and clear. It was like I just saw the most beautiful painting in the world. The sound of children laughing and my mother cooking downstairs were like music to my ears. My phone buzzed. It was Fiona. She just woke up and sent me the sweetest text ever that made me smile oh so wide. I took a deep breath, closed my eyes, exhaled and thought to my self: This is life.

Two seconds after exhaling I started coughing. My chest was hurting, my throat felt like it was on fire and my eyes were watering. After a few bouts of disgusting smoker's cough, I finally managed to straighten up and gasp for air. Than it struck me.

The smoking's got to stop.  Because if it doesn't than there is a good chance the wonderful life I'm living right now, won't be wonderful as wonderful in a few short years. That's IF I still have a life to live with when that time comes.

You want a magic drug to help you to quit smoking? There ain't any. From my personal experience, nicotine patches, gums etc are pure bullshit. You want the secret to quit smoking? Here's the secret mate.

Love. That's the all elusive fucked up drug everyone is trying to find. When you love yourself and the people around you enough to stop killing you and them slowly with poison, believe me mate, you're gonna want to quit. Trust me, I did just that.

How to be TS Tony Fernandes.

He bought QPR. Why on earth would anyone buy QPR. I know the team has a colorful history but in recent years, where has the club been and what good would it do to spend hundreds of millions of ringgit on a club that has nearly no fans outside the UK?

A business analysts said this: " I cannot see why he bought QPR. It has no business prospect"..or something along that line.

Good old Tony simply replied: "That's why he still remains as an analyst".


He bought an ailing airline company with debts amounting to millions and millions of ringgit, turned it around to be a mega successful company, started his own formula one team and now, he bought over a newly promoted EPL club.

From his track record, I can make one simple conclusion:

To be as successful as Tony Fernandes you have to be brave and think out of the box. However, you will also need balls the size of Australia.

Kudos Tan Sri. Hopefully I can be like you one day.

Help me find God.

The moment I was born my father took me into his hands and gently whispered into my ears the first words I would hear as I entered this world:

Allah Maha Besar. God is Great.

As I grew older my parents called religious teachers to our house to teach me how the read the Holy Quran. My parents taught me how to fast during Ramadhan. My parents taught me how to pray. My parents taught me how to begin everything I do with the phrase Bismillahirahmanirrahim which means In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

I did all diligently. I remembered when I was 6 or 7 years old, every time before I go to bed, I would stare at the wall and thought to myself the horror of judgment day. The horror of not dying as a Muslim, the horror of dying without Iman. I was petrified. As I grew older, it all changed. I was no longer afraid of God. I was no longer afraid of the Almighty being that brought me into this world. I forgot that as easy as He brought me into this world, it would be equally as easy for Him to kick me out.

I have seen many people around me changing for the better. I have seen alcoholics and drug users turning their life around because of one reason and one reason only. And that reason is Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

Come to think about it, I never lost God. He has always been there for me, blessing my life with his grace. Blessing me with everything I have today. I just forgot about Him. I forgot about My God that has given me everything good I have in this life.

Its time I went back to my God. Kembali kepada Allah SWT.

This Ramadhan, My life will be turned around Insyallah.
