Epilog : After the aftermath and The Eid Epilogue

  • It has been a beautiful journey, I have made the comeback thinking that was it, but in fact it wasn't, yet again I am tested in ways I could never imagine.
  • When I first got the news, like most human beings with rational natural feelings, I cried and was literally breaking down, that was by far one of the difficult times in my life, but you have to let it out and then put your emotions aside, only then you understand, the purpose that you have been blessed by this sort of tests.
  • And all the credit is due to Allah, and only the mistakes have been mine.
  • One other thing that still bothers me till today, is that the number of people who thinks I am still there (Indonesia), those whom dropped by my place and wished me well and gave their insights and advices before I took off, those who came by to the kenduri and was telling me the usual this and that's.
  • So I've decided, until and if they post me a question, I would only tell them what they needed to know.
  • This year's raya was quite dull because of this, I blame myself for being difficult, hopefully this will all go away soon.
  • And having said that, I received good news a few days after I had been sent back.
  • I had a previous offer accepted from Mansoura University,Egypt before I left for Universitas Padjadjaran, but I declined thinking that I was going to make it in Bandung, but I didn't.
  • So here I am, again, I got a second chance in which I am very very thankful for, I know that this is not the end of my hardship, because I am about to experience a whole new challenge, and that I pray and hope that I am up for it this time around.
  • I will be leaving Malaysia for the second time running, next Wednesday, 30th of September, I will be off to embark on a journey and hopefully attain not just my degree, but also I am looking to make better myself, spiritually and mentally in 5 years time!
  • Once again, thanks for all the relentless support and all the prayers from each and everyone of you, I really appreciate it! Keep it coming, and lets all strive harder for our successes!

Epilog : Beautifully Bountiful

  • Ramadan saban hari saban pergi dari kita semua. Pasti dalam bulan yang mulia ini, setiap seorang punya cereka sendiri, ceritera yang menarik tentang betapa indahnya Ramadan.
  • A few days back, I logged on to facebook, only to find the above scrumptious picture of fried chicken was posted by a friend of mine as his profile picture.
  • Sedap kan? That's exactly what I thought when I first saw the picture. Dahla anak jarum jam baru terengsot-engsot ke arah pukul 3pm, doo-gaaa-an.
  • Perut memang berderau-derau merembes segala jus yang patut, salivates your senses la bak kata makcik yang menjual surat khabar di kawasan berhampiran Tesco tu.
  • Jadi petang tu, aku rasa nekad nak cari ayam goreng macam tu jugak, be it beli kat bazaar Ramadan ka or any shop.
  • Then I remembered that I promised myself that I would go jogging that day, jadi aku ketepikan, dengan segala pilunya. niat membeli ayam goreng tu. I went jogging instead.
  • Malam itu, aku berbuka dengan bubur lambuk. Sesudah berbuka, maka bersiap-siaplah untuk solat terawikh, di mana bulan puasa kali ini, aku ubah-ubah masjid/surau.
  • Aku singgah surau kuaters polis berhampiran rumah aku kali ini, dapat ziarah sahabat aku sekali,ehehe.
  • Guess what, lepaih terawikh habes, I was told the more for that night was KFC!!!
  • Then I smiled, in my heart I knew that I delayed my fried chicken cravings and was duly rewarded, dapat dua kotak lagi tu :D
  • Well having told you that story, what about you? Whats your Ramadan story?

Quote(s) : George Carlin

" The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class does all of the work and pays all of the taxes. The poor there? They are just there to scare the shit out of the middle class..." - George Carlin

"Forget the politicians, politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have the freedom of choice, You DON'T!... you have no choice!!
You have owners, they OWN you. They own everything. They own all the important land. The own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the senate,the congress and the city hall. They got the judges in their back pockets. They own all the big media. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying for their cause. It's because they want more for them than less for us." - George Carlin


I admire his relentless fighting. For all that he fought for, for all he has said, had already been seen in today's generation.
I could understand why he said all those things, and for all of you who still have your blindfolds on, please, look at everything in a different perspective, see the world for what it is.

Here's the video excerpts of George Carlin's speeches..
