Affectionately to our Brothers and Sisters in Syria and Egypt (if you happen to come across with this write up), I pray to our Almighty Allah that you be granted with strength, might and patience in your struggle and resistance against the tyranny and cruelty of the oppressors.
May you cries and doa be heard by the Almighty, Insya Allah...
"Justice Is Lost
Justice Is Raped
Justice Is Gone
Pulling Your Strings
Justice Is Done
Seeking No Truth
Winning Is All
Find it So Grim
This is a re-post entry which for a purpose, I will simply republish this article again and again on each and every year. :-)
sighting of the moon, it is expected that the 7th of August 2013 will
be the last day of fasting in this holy Ramadhan month and next comes the
"Hari Raya Aidilfitri" - the holiday to celebrate the conclusion of
fasting throughout the holy month.
In celebrating the festival, as for the case, here are some "IF" advises for us to ponder :
Drive extremely fast if we are impatience to meet the Almighty and furthermore what is the value of other people's life?
There will be lots of policemen out
there, so, opt to drive exceeding the speed limit if we sympathized with
the summons collection they made last year.
Do not be that considerate on the road if we are paying more road tax and driving bigger vehicle than the other road users.
Spend frantically as seems that there is no tomorrow if we feel Eid-Ul Fitri will no longer be celebrated next year.
Eat a lot especially the food with
tonnes of coconut milk if we feel the Ramadhan fasting has really
caused us our weight to shred and we extremely regretted for losing much inches on the
Wear round neck t-shirt with Iron Maiden print on it, faded jeans
and a baseball cap on the first day of Eid-Ul Fitr if we think that visiting our parents,
relatives or friends looks cooler than wearing the complete traditional
"baju Melayu", "baju kurung", etc.
Go to the movies if we feel we can still
visit our parents, relatives, friends, etc. afterward either during
Chinese New Year, Deepavali, Christmas or perhaps Hari Gawai.
...... and the list goes on. :-)
Thus, to all friends ...and foes too, ha..ha..ha.., I take this opportunity
to seek forgiveness and may all of you and your family be blessed by
Allah the Almighty with great health,
prosperity and happiness here and thereafter.
Wishing all of you Happy Eid-Ul Fitr and see ya...
It has been a while since my last writing. To tell you the truth, by no means, I have somewhat suddenly lost my passion to write but the spirit kept on calling so strong and that today I begin writing again Ha..ha..ha.. :-)
By the way, last Saturday as to begin my story, for the first ever time, my son Ilhan asked me to describe the job that I am doing as a human resource practitioner. To tell you the truth, I have been waiting for such a question to arise one day from my kids so that I can picture them that making a living ain't easy as they see.
In general, he knows that I am a human resource practitioner but he had no idea what the heck I do day in and day out. Bearing a sarcastic smile and expression on my face, I replied by telling him that what I do every day is to hire and fire people, without elaborating to any extent what it actually means. He dropped his jaw and was astonished to hear my response, ignored me and he then continued assembling his Lego set which I got for him during my last business trip to the States.
As he ignored me, I then picked up the book "Doctor In The House" written by one of my inspirational figure Tun Dr. Mahathir thinking of to finish up reading it as I had read more than ninety percent of the book but I decided to put it away as my son's question moments before suddenly ticked my mind. His question actually made me realized that I had for quite some time practicing human resource since day one and soon it will be approaching twenty years. Hell yeah! It was a very long time indeed. Throughout the years I have seen and experienced so many things. The ups and downs had all the way matures me progressively. It was never boring though some people say that managing human has never got an end.
All in all, I had never regretted and I knew I made the right decision opting to do something that other people might not want to do and I guess I have fallen in love with the things I do.
As for the case, Metallica is coming to town soon, I love them but not their job. Hell yeah!!! :-)
