1 Ramadhan 1432 Hijrah. :)

"O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous -"


As we're entering the holy month of Ramadhan, who have wronged me, I have sincerely forgiven you, and to everyone whom I have wronged, please do accept my utmost sincere apology. May this Ramadhan be a blessed one, InsyaAllah. :)

p/s:It takes a big heart to apologize, but it takes a bigger heart to accept an apology.

19 Candles Were Blown. :D

A week ago, today, I turned 19. Now, I know this is on a very delayed note, but hey, better late than never, right? So here's a little shout out to everyone who had made my day.

First off, thank you for the countless amounts of wishes on Facebook. Alhamdulillah, I managed to reply each and every one of it without copy-pasting like what I did last year. And trust me, I tried to answer it a little different from the other, but somehow most of it is best contained "thank you. :D" and only that. =.=

Second, thank you to everyone who texted me on my phone at midnight, up till the next day. Thanks a gazillion. And as for this one, I'm a hundred percent sure I replied each of it differently and I tried best as I could to reply it as soon as i read it.

Third, thank you to Nurul Husna for calling me at midnight and singing me the Birthday song through the phone! Now how many of your friends would do this? Honestly, I'm touched. And thank you sayang for the biscuits, it was tremendously wonderful (despite the fact that I'm allergic to nuts.Haha.) But somehow I ate a lot of it. Thank you buddy. :')

Fourth, thank you to my classmates who sang the Birthday song during Sociolinguistic class. I honestly did not expected that at all. Nonetheless, thank you dear classmates, second year in a row, yet you people have never let me down.

Fifth, thank you to those awesome people who did a surprise celebration for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now this one I shall not speak much here as I'll elaborate on this in another post.

Sixth, thank you to those who wished me in person. Thank you for taking the time to stop and wish me. And to those bunch of Kak Shaq's friends who sang the birthday song in front of the hot dog table. <---(why am I mentioning the venue in detail?), thank you nonetheless. :D

Most importantly, thank you to my sister for being the first to wish me. (Although she actually cheated by wishing a day earlier. =.=), and to my cousin who was the second to wish me. And of course the whole family who celebrated my birthday in Malacca on the 23rd. I love all of you ever so dearly.

Last but not least, thank you to every one of you great souls who had wished me be it on Facebook, through the phone, and not to mention in person. I could mention each and every one of your names but that still won't be sufficient to portray my gratitude towards your kindness. Thank you for making my day.

#1.Take Good Care of Your Heart.

Bayangkan kalau orang pinjam barang yang kita sayang, dan lepas sekian lama dia pinjam, dia pulangkan dalam keadaan yang teruk. Would you like that?

Hidup kita ini hanyalah pinjaman semata-mata. Sejauh mana kita rasa kita telah mencapai dan menguasai hidup kita, the truth is, kita tetap milik Allah. Kita hak milik mutlak Allah s.w.t. and there's no way we can ever change that fact. Sedar ataupun tidak, manusia diciptakan penuh kesempurnaan. Walaupun ada yang dicipta sebagai "kurang upaya" and all those other terms human created to describe these people, hakikatnya adalah we are born perfect. Kekurangan yang datang tu sebenarnya telah digantikan dengan kelebihan yang lain.

We're born with brain and heart. These are the things that makes us all different in so many ways. The heart I'm talking about is not that beating heart, tetapi saya merujuk pada hati. Yes, hati. Ada apa dengan hati? Dalam banyak-banyak parts of the body yang kita boleh rosakkan, this one is the one I've found to be the most not taken care of. Memanglah, siapa yang sengaja nak biarkan hati dia sakit, tapi tanya balik the root question to ourself, why in the first place have I fallen into a heartbreak?

Jawapannya simple sebenarnya. Kita telah menyerahkan hati kita to those undeserving people. Kita rasa ada yang lebih berhak memiliki kita selain daripada pencipta kita sendiri. Thus the statements of "I'm taken by _______" or "Owned by _______" and etc. Bukanlah saya nak kata diri saya ni tidak melakukan perkara sebegini. (Frankly speaking, memang tak pernah pun! I am mine and it shall stay that way. Ahaha! ) Back to business, like I said, kita ni pinjaman, meaning that even our heart is just a lease to us, so kalau kita bagi orang pinjam barang kita, and orang yang meminjam pula memberikan barang kita kepada orang lain, how would you feel? To make it worse, the person they hand it to merosakkan pula barang kita tu. How's that?

Sama sahaja konsepnya sebenarnya dengan benda-benda lain. Kalau kita harap orang jaga barang kita dengan baik, why not kita start menjaga "barang" yang Allah bagi pinjam dekat kita dengan baik dulu? Mungkin dengan cara ini, Allah akan membalas perbuatan kita dengan meletakkan kita di antara orang yang benar-benar tahu menghargai dan melayan kita dengan cara yang betul.


"Allah hanya meminjamkan mereka pada kita seketika, hanya kita yang leka dan tidak tahu menjaga mereka dengan baik. Sebab itulah Allah mengambil mereka kembali. Kalau tak suka, pulangkan."

p/s: A rather Islamic post now, don't you think? Didn't intend it to be that way, but I reckon since it turned out to be one, it'd be a good reminder for you and myself as well. :)

A Stranger's Soul.

We're all just so preciously human.

This is what makes the heart beats faster at those thoughts. (This is what makes the cold shoulder felt.)

This is what makes the world spins. (This is what makes us all aliens inside of us.)

This is what makes the sky blue. (This is what shatters our dreams.)

This is what makes us dive the deep blue ocean. (This is what makes us drown in imaginations.)

I walk the pier to what seemed the longest walk taken, between you, the ocean and the sun, we can make something sink just to breathe the air. It's just water.

Defying the ironic thoughts of how little things could contradict each other in a much less understood way would be a thoroughly vain yet harmless attempt.

This is what makes the distance between us.

(Please be human to me.)

Day #3 : Your Idea of the Perfect First Date.

My first rule to having a perfect date is to NOT have any awkward feeling with each other. By the time you're reading this post, you should have figured out that I've a degree in awkwardness. Yes, I do. (And yes, I made up the part of having a degree in such field as it doesn't actually exist. -___-)

Number two, the easiest way of actually spending time with someone you barely know or you have just got to know in person is basically by going out with a bunch of friends. Going on a double date would fit nicely. But the bad side of going on a double date is if you have a friend that would shun on you, or make fun of you and your partner, now that would be honestly irritating.

Third point! The first date is also a time to start being comfortable with each other, NOT the time to get intimate with each other. Get it? So going to enjoyable places like the movies, theme parks and whatever else is enough as to satisfy the venue. Going to closed places where the two of you would actually get tempted to touch each other is a huge NO! Kissing on a first date would add to a double no.

In a nutshell<---(now this sounds so much like my debate text), my idea of the perfect first date is basically being able to feel that you're in a safe zone while spending time with your partner. Come on, what's the point of being with someone if you're there just to get judged? If they're gonna take you for a long-term relationship, make sure they've seen you at your worst. :)

Day #2 : Your Favorite Movie.

I have always been into cartoons and such, but I have to say my all-time favorite is NOT a cartoon, it would be Miracle In Lane 2, a Disney Movie starred by Frankie Muniz. This was the time when Disney made real good movies, not just for-kids-to-watch movies. Know what I mean? *winks* I'm not gonna elaborate on what the movie is all about and etc. Rather, I'll post a link for that purpose down here.

*Click here for the full synopsis, review, cast interviews and all the whatnots.*

The main reason why I love this movie is because it's based on a true-story, which means the storyline and the ending is logical, the dreams it captures are graspable. Another thing is that, did you notice how cute Mr. Muniz is in the movie? *drools* :D

Day #1 : Your Favorite Song.

I have been listening to music all my life, thus choosing one in particular to be a favorite tune of mine would be utterly ridiculous. But here's a few of my all-time favorites.

#1.Words by Bee Gees.

Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you near to me
Don't ever let me find you down, cause that would bring a tear to me
This world has lost it's glory, let's start a brand new story now, my love
Right now, there'll be no other time and I can show you how, my love.

Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life, I'm here if you should call to me
You think that I don't even mean a single word I say
It's only words and words are all I have to take your heart away.

#2.Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be okay
Though my skies are turning gray

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

#3.Akrab Persahabatan by In-Team.

Buang yang keruh ambil yang jernih
Dendam hasad dengki mestilah dijauhi
Ukhuwah dan mahabbah kita jalinkan
Bina keharmonian

Sesegar hijau daunan
Begitulah kita diibaratkan
Tiada siapa yang bisa memisahkan kita
Antara kita semua

#4.Hold On by The Jonas Brothers.

When you love someone

And they break your heart
don’t give up on love
Have faith, restart
Just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

When it falls apart
And you're feeling lost
All your hope is gone
don’t forget to hold on, hold on

#5.Go by Boys Like Girls.

Get up and go, take a chance and be strong

Or you could spend your whole life holding on
Don't look back, just go, take a breath, move along
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
You could spend your whole life holding on

Believe the tunnel can end, believe your body can mend
Yeah, I know you can make it through 'cause I believe in you
So let's go put up a fight, let's go make everything alright
Go on and take a shot, go give it all you got

There you go, 5 of my favorites. I know the title says favorite song which particularly means singular, but I can pick none of my numero uno favorite thus the picking of my Top 5. And yes, I do listen to the lyrics, not the songs. :)
