my heart wil go on..

From my beloved frens Liana (she's very talented in poetry, yay! yo go gurl)... wanna share wif other:

Maryam sayang...

"...sememangnya hati suke menyimpan,

lumrah hati untuk mentafsir,

namun lumrah hati sukar difahami,

gunakan lisan sebagai penghubung hati,

supaya terungkap segala tersirat di hati,

buat insan yang sentiasa bersemi d hati"

Semoga Allah temukan Jodoh ku dengan insan yg benar2 ikhlas menerima diriku.. insan yg akan ku gelar suami.. amin.

Welcome Ramadhan.. d month of blessing!

"Ya Allah, sesungguhnya bulan Ramadhan telah tiba. Wahai Tuhan Pemilik bulan Ramadhan. Engkau telah menurunkan al-Quran di dalamnya, dan telah menjadikannya sebagai penjelas atas petunjuk dan pembeda antara yang haq dan yang batil. Wahai Tuhan kami, berkatilah kami di dalamnya dan bantulah kami dalam menunaikan puasa serta shalat di dalamnya. Terimalah amal-amal kami di dalamnya."

In just 2 days, we gonna give a warm welcome to Ramadhan..a month in seeking d Nur n Hidayah (actually everyday one can do dis, but during ramadhan d feel is bits diff especially d nite of Lailatul Qada~still waitin for it) from the One, Allah s.w.t. this is a very food opportunities for us to devote our self to d Creator coz dis is indeed a blessing month. Opss.. not forgetting to wish hepi 51st bufday to Malaysia, yay.. 'Merdeka!'. but im more excited in celebrating Ramadhan rather than independent day. if d day after tomorrow is exact day for fasting, it means tomorw nite tarawih is gonna be started.. ~good memories bout tarawih came into my mind~huhu.. (cannot story la).. ok, enough talkin nonsense, let's talk bout Ramadhan..

To make d month differ from other, one should change their behaviour, atitude n outlook especially due to d rules n regulation that need to be follow in order to gain an affective fasting. thus, it can help us in improving our self n hopefully we can be a better person. Ramadhan is a good teacher in self reflection (as i stated earlier in my blog, i wanna improve myself). here r some of d lesson dat i googles from jannah.org dat can be shared to my readers:
  • Lesson 1: Gaining taqwa (fear of Allah) Allah legislated fasting for gaining taqwa, "O you who believe fasting has been prescribed upon you as it has been prescribed upon those before you, so that you may attain taqwa." (meaning of Sooratul Baqarah (2):138) Tawqa in this case means, to make a shield between oneself and Allah's anger and hellfire. So we should ask ourselves, when we break our fasts, 'Has this fasting day made us fear Allah more ? Has it resulted that we want to protect ourselves from the hellfire ?'
  • Lesson 2: Drawing us closer to Allah This is achieved by reciting and reflecting on Al-Qur'an during the night and the day, attending the taraweh prayers, remembering Allah, sitting in circles of knowledge and for those who can, making umrah. The Prophet (may Allah send His blessing and peace upon him) said,"An umrah in the month of Ramadan is equal (in reward) to performing a hajj." (Ahmad & Ibn Majah). Also for those who can, making itikaf (seclusion) in the last ten days of Ramadan, so to leave all worldly pursuits and seclude oneself in a masjid just thinking of Allah, this brings us closer to Allah. When one sins, one feels distant from Allah. That is why one might find it hard to read and reflect on the Qur'an and come to the masjid. However, the obedient worshipper feels closer to Allah and wants to worship Allah more, because Allah forgives and is merciful.
  • Lesson 3: Acquiring patience and strong will Allah has mentioned patience more than seventy times in the Qur'an and has commanded patience in more than sixteen ways in His Book. So when one fasts, and gives up one's food and drink, and one's marital sexual relations for those hours, one learns restraint and patience. This ummah needs men and women that are strong willed, who can stand upon the Sunnah and the Book of Allah and not waver in front of the enemies of Allah. We do not need emotional people, who raise slogans and shout, but when the time comes to stand upon something firm, they cannot do so, they waver.

i need a Break!

i'm still workin on my assgmen~proposal of retirement village~.. it is the toughest assigment yet i ever received.. i googles bout it for three nite, but my paper is still Blank ~dunno wat to write~
Adoi.. where d heck is my ideas?!.. when i red bout retirement village from d internet, it suprised me dat there's gazzilion of it in other countries but not in Malaysia ~i only heard, cheras got one~ but i'm not sure.

FYI, retirement village is not like an institution for elderly but it more like community setting which is very good for elderly to be independent. it is a preventive treatment approach to improve d quality of life, n decrease d disease and disability in elderly. very excellent way.. i hope dat one day i can booked one ~if i live alone~ huhu

i realised dat why it is hard to start an elderly- enviromental-friendly retirement villages in malaysia.. dat's becoz it needs lots of investments ~no money, no talk~ hoho.. but i belive one day malaysia will have plenty of dis villages to accomodate our elderly. dis retirement village will filled wif facilities n modified goods that suitable for elderly to use without d help of others ~d tru meaning of life, live independently as long as we can~

my lecturer Dr yau or Dr lee (forgoT which one) said once:
if you have a choice, which one wud u pick-

"to put life in years or to put years in life"

My choice definitely wud be to put life in years.. mcm lg nasyid, apa la gune idup 1000 tahun, kl x semayang x bermakne, hoho.. d Quality is more important rather than quantity. If my life is meant to be 30 years only, i would make sure dat it wud be meaningful as a person n as a khalifah Allah. So plz do think bout ur choice.. pick wisely.

part II: together we stand!

try to learn something bout everythin n everythin bout somethin

pic of me n my course mate
Sambungan dr intro.. nak share ckit la my experinces from d 1st time i stepped into OT ukm till now. At first, i'm very blur2 bout where my my career goin to be end up.. (umi wants me to be a pharmacist but i'm not qualified enough to be one), so i'm just try n error on my UPU application.. n BOOM, here i am, my fifth choice.. hohoho. but now i'm very glad dat i've made my choice, no regret at all. REhab is fun!

OT is all bout restoring, maintaing or adapting a disable people's function in activities of daily living, so that they can perform independently in their max abilities. Rehabilitations r really improves one's quality of life. sometimes people like to take things for granted, most of daily actvts r look very easy, but even when u have a fractured iust at one little finger, it thus cud affects ur lifes. ~during my posting in orthopedic units last sem at hosp klang, i've seen lots of people with minor injury, but yet it affect their daily actvties~ x besh la kan kl suddenly people doing thing for us..

other than orthopedics, OT also include geriatric care, pediatric, neurology, medical n also last but not least psychiatric (takut.. must collect all d strength n knowledge be4 posting, hoho). d main domain of OT r work, play n leisure. These three elements r d basic things of rehab in OT. we want them to be able in doing things that they wanna do instead of things dat we want for them ~no point if they r not interested in d actvity~ clients is our main priority!

greatest OT in d making!

poem from liana_lily

titisan embun pagi jernih memancar cahaya,

menanti fajar beralih pagi,

embun itu segar kekal d sebalik kelopak2 pengorbanan,

sesekali embun itu jatuh menitis ke bumi,

namun ad kalanya ia tegar hingga hilang menjadi rintik2 ujan yg menjanjijakn pelangi indah,

sesekali pelangi menyepi d sebalik awan,

mengharapkan angin membawa awan pergi,

namun semuanya lebih mudah dan beerti jika kita berdiri d jalan yg suci,

jalan yg diredhai lg d berkati... InsyAllah.

p/s: semoga kemengan d pihak kami.. d world need a change.

IntRo: together we stand!

pic taken during family gathering at Tebing Tinggi. Very syok woo, x puas sngt jumpe d whole families of tok ki awang n tok Midah.. 1st time, wat family gathering.

For intro.. nak story a bits la bout d power of human soul. We should respect someone by their soul n not d look, d color, d condition etc, but sees them as there r, n try to accept them. Mcm tok nenek slalu kate la, don't simply judge a book by it's cover. We can never ever shuted people from talkin bout us, so, just plug ur ears n live life to d max without forgetting our Creator, ALLAH.

Taking an Occupational Therapy (OT) programme have opened up my eyes, heart n soul. It is like a wake up call for me dat a person should be respected by their soul. Lots of disable people have been treated improperly. Believe me, dis is tru, me n my other coursemate had been menyamar as an OKU (assigmen for communication subject) n i can see some of d people still treated them badly, but there is still some people who really have a pure heart.. ( taxi driver don't want to take our money) ~ we feel very ashamed becoz lying to him.. huhu. my other fren was being sindir by one of d citizen saying dat "kl dah x nley jln tue, duk je la umah.. xyah sesusahkan orang"... kurang ajar kan, dahla xnak tolon.. pastue ley plak sarchastic camtue..

But it's good to menyamar as OKU coz we can know how their feelin's n it makes us be more aware bout others. but i still have lots to be improve as i'm still in process in reconstruct myself.. haha, muhasabah diri la kirenye.. still have lots to be learn. ~self reflection~. I know lots of people didn't know bout OTs Role, so i'm here to promote my career.. haha. We help people to help themselves :). i'm in my 3rd year takin OT Bsc (hons) in UKM.. Stil got 1 n 1/2 yeras to go.
