...: WELCOME 2011 :...

It is the time to really say good bye and 'ta ta' to 2010, 2011 is coming in less than 24 hours from now. And forsure, there will be millions of ringgit will be burnt today, 31 December 2010 to celebrate a new year, for fireworks. GOOD BYE 2010, WELCOME 2011..!!

In the newspaper already reported that there will closures to some road in the city, starting from 5pm on 31 Dec 2010 until 6am on 1 Jan 2011, for celebrating new year. The roads are Dataran Merdeka, Bukit Bintang, KLCC, Bangsar/Telawi and KL Sentral. Also, most probably there will be another roads to close phase by phase. The fireworks are as usuals, about ten to thirty minutes, then no more.

It depends on the individual to celebrate it or not, to celebrate with families or friends, think of the best way.

The 2011 comes with hope, brings happiness to everybody, hopefully. May this coming new year will give us strength to face a challenging decade until the year 2020 and beyond it. WELCOME 2011..!!

Many of us hoping the year 2011 will brings more happiness, brings more luck and give us so much time to make our ambition a reality. This new year may give us so many sweet moments if we appreciate what we have done before and what we have right now. Lets think about our future, what we have done before and what we do right now will result in the near future whether we will success or not. What we haveright now will not show who we are in the future.

Therefore, we have to act, before we act, we have to plan what we are going to do and then we do what we have planned. After that, we need to check whether we have done according to the plan or not, if not, redo, if yes then proceed to the next step, act to what we have done according to the plan. Hopefully this new year will brings us more joy and a lot of happiness in our life and could be a turning point to us to be more passion and patient in everything that we will do including working and studying, where ever we are.

It's been twelve months gone for the year 2010, in a few days, there will be 2011, a new decade of our life will begin in less than two days. So many things happen to us along the year 2010, some of them were very sweet moments and some of them were the moments that we will not to recall them again, otherwise it will hurt us. Whatever it is, life must go on. Maybe some of our ambitions were not achieved and maybe only half of the ambitions come to reality. Luckily for the SPM candidates, they are happy because the BIG test is over, and i believe that the momentum of their feelings are still there, always happy and thinking nothing, no more readings 'Sejarah', Biology, no more memorizations and no more maths exercises, but they are still thinking to work, to feel what the workers feel. Congratulations for them for finishing the tests. Now we can say GOOD BYE 2010.

The year that engrave my history and my story, people always say like this because througout the year, there are such happy moments happened in their life, so many things that can make us feel very happy, and also, there were a few sweet dates in the year 2010, such as, 20 October 2010 = 20102010,also 10 October '10 = 101010. So sweet right..?Hmm...It's been chosen to be the date of some couples to get married on those dates. soooo sweeettt...! Praise be to Allah. Because of HIM, we can still breath and can still choose the date happily. If we want to see sweet moments and also not-so-sweet moments which had happened in the year 2010, there will be such a long story, so many things happened in the last twelve months. Let by gone be by gone, we have to proceed our life into the next challenge decade with some new technologies, and we need to prepare ourselves the new ideas to improve our life in the near future, in less than 48 hours.

There are something waiting for us, something which is more interesting, something which is better. The year 2011 is coming and it is very near to us right now, and normally many of us are celebrating a new year with fireworks.

:: sHaRiNG is CARing ::

Good afternoon & Salam to all,

Hopefully you are in the good health and enjoy your time with families. I am here today just want to share something with you. This is about my students who come to me during consultation hours, seems like they are worried about their quizzes and their exams (mid semester exam) which already passed and as usual, some of them got higher marks and there are also a few of them got not-so-high mark. Its maybe due to their own preparation and depend on their own effort.

Alhamdulillah, thank God because with His permission, all of have done a good job, however, you can still improve it in the next quizzes and in the end-of-semester examination which is very near, just around the corner. I do not want anything from you, what I want is you can draw result with a flying colors, this is quite important. Until today, I am happy for you because within less than two months some of you already exposed their talent and willing to expose their ideas to me and to their beloved classmates. Here is the evidence of their commitment:

These handwritings are from those who are discussing in my office. Congratulations to you and all your friends. Hopefully, all of you may try this in the next session when we meet again, InsyaAllah after your holiday, hopefully. This is actually for your own good, for your future as professionals.

Hopefully, all ao you will come to our discussion session well prepared so that you can easily can catch up what we will discuss. I hope that you can be independent because you will be the future leaders. Everybody is looking for you, the IIUM graduates. I know you can do it very well. Keep up the good work..!!

Sure some of you are already at home especially for those who are living in KL-Selangor region. For those who need to travel about 3 hours and above, please enjoy your trip, always calm and please always pray to HIM. Most probably some of you was already in the other country such as Singapore, Thailand or maybe Hong Kong, enjoying holidays with your beloved families. Enjoy your holiday and spend time with them.

For those who are not going anywhere during the holiday, you can actually enjoy it with your loves one, your family, in home. Not all of us can go and enjoy the holiday in other places other than his or her hometown. Actually, visiting (going back to kampung) parents is the most useful holidays, without them, we are not here. Please remember that, they are willing to do anything just for us, their sons & daughters, their children.

Therefore, we as their children must give them something, I am sure that they do not want money from us, they do not demand us on the material, they are not materialistic, they are our parents, what they need is LOVE. This is what they want and demand from us. So, as children, we must be very thankful to them for taking care of us until we can learn very well, and some of us already working as doctors, lawyers, architects and the other professional field in Malaysia and also in the other countries. Please remember our parents, give them LOVE as they has given to us long time ago.

:: LRT..? MRT..? ::

What are those things..?What is LRT? What is MRT..?Most of us did not really aware about what our government is looking for and what actually our government plan to have in our country...There are also KTM Komuter, Keretapi Tanah Melayu, ERL, KLIA Express, and also Monorail. So many public transport in KL which are using the same type of railway except for Monorel. from its name we can already identified that Monorail is a transport with one rail, mono = one. In ther near future which is less than five years time, our country will have another public tranport called MRT planned to have route from Sungai Buloh to kajang in Balakong. Most probably, the stations will be more than ten "pit-stop" or stations. We can only just wait and see what will happen to our country and lets together we wait for this MRT, I heard that it can have four hundred over thousands at a time will be using this new public transport when it finish.

:: aLL tHe BesT ::

Normally and usually, we will say something to our frens and family especially when they will having tests and examination or anything like interviews. Some will say, "Good luck for your exam tonight..", and some would give to you another words, "All the best..!!" or maybe your frens are speaking arabic, "Bit-tawfeeq". There are so many words and ways of wishing your colleagues to do the something or tests in their best way after putting the effort to study and redise what to do in the tests.

In addition, I believe that most of us wishing their frens intentionally and personally because of their prayer, to show that we are concern about them, pray for them to have the best result after they do the tests in their best way. 

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my students and their frens the very best of luck in your mid semester exam which will be held tonight. After studying for a few weeks, this is the biggest test ever after having two small tests. I am trying and doing my best to help all of you. I knew that all of you are seeking the highest grade in the subjects. I am praying that all of you can do it better as compared to our previous two small tests. These are the tests from human being, there will be tests from our Creator, ALLAH the Almighty, He is giving us the tests everyday and everynight, its depend on us how to face the tests. The way you answer the tests will show your preparations and your readiness. We cannot always find excuse by saying, "I am not yet ready for the test". Actually, we must always be prepared because we do not even know any tests from Allah the Almighty, its the same concept here. Therefore, we must always be prepared for the tests. ALL THE BEST & GOOD LUCK..!

Salams & Hi everybody...

I am here again to express my feelings..I feel upset because of some people in our place here did not really aware, is it? Or they aware but because of their mind set and always thinking that there are no such people here with this sticker at the car.

What is the purpose of our administration create such parking lot? The parking lots are special for them, the parking lots with labeled especially for OKU. If there any cars parked at those sepcial parking lots without this sticker, it will really embarassed, of course they are normal persons and they need to feel ashamed to others. I don't really know about their feelings, but I think and I guess, they just want to have easy access and there are no parking lot anymore which is near to the entrance. Some of them asked, "Is there any OKU here..?". The answer is, "Of course there are OKU's, if not, there will be no such parking lots built here."

Therefore, for those who are stealing those parking lots, please set your mind, don't think short, think of the others most because they are special to us. Please be aware, do not take something from the others, only you can make it difference. Do not take the things that belongs to others. Let us together respect the others' properties. In this case the parking lots especially built for the special. I know you can make it!
