Regret

I will regret this for the rest of my life. 

I hate it. 

Dear myself,
Learn to say No.
Learn to check  first!
Learn to think before act.

:(

*crying inside out* arghhhhh

I am sorry.

  Update: alhamdulillah got courage.  Went back to the shop on the next day to ask for refund.  Got almost full refund.  Except one product is non refundable.  What to do.  At least I have received 80% back my money! Told the salesgirl my principle about boycott.  Alhamdulillah she understand.  (well,  not really.  But ok la) i am proud of myself.  :)

Early morning in Scotland

Assalamualaikum and hi!

I am off to Aberdeen.  Yeay! Well,  not for holiday but to 'babysit' my dear girlfriend. Jangan marah no, dear.  Hehe. 

Here are few things to learn in this journey. 

Edinburgh - Aberdeen

Lesson 1.

Well,  the train station is 15 min walk from the place I stay.  And the train leaves at 5.30am. So,  to be safe, I went out from the house at 5 am. 

I choose to walk.  Why? It is free! *typical a broke student.  Lols* don't worry.  It is quite safe.  The bus is still operates. Many people on the road.  Going home after hangover.  Lols.

Edinburgh is a nice beautiful place. And I love it.  Full with history and heritage.  Buttttt if you want to know a real city.  Go out at around 5 ish in the morning.  And Edinburgh will reveal the other side of it.  The roads are filthy. Vomitus everywhere.  Rubbish left and right.  People drunk. (not everyone.  Some of them) The smell yucks.  Water spills out from cans,  bottles make the pavement looks wet.  It is really not a nice view to see the first thing in the morning!

You can't judge someone or some place or something from knowing only one side of it.  Well,  you shouldn't judge someone in the first place.  There are no perfection.  Look on the bright side. 

Lessons learnt. 

(btw,  thw scenery from Edinburgh to Aberdeen is majestic.  Love it!)

Lesson 2.

At the train station,  I took out my hoodies.  Well, as a precaution, I wear it from home.  Suddenly,  someone say Assalamualaikum.  Ehehs.  I turned around and see a young black man was cleaning the stairs. 

He smiled. And we did some chit chat.  He was from? Sanada.  Leaving his family and work alone in Edinburgh.  He keeps on saying MasyAllah,  SubhnAllah. Reminding me of Allah.  Allahu.  It is sooo beautiful.  May Allah bless him and grant him rezki dunya wa akhirah.  Amin!

Strangers can teach you about life! Be that kind of stranger to others. 

Lesson learnt.

Lesson 3.

At the platform,  while waiting an elderly man (P) who is a passenger talk to the? trainman (T)

P: is there any food or drink sell on the train? It is early in the morning and no shops open out there! (with a raised voice when the trainman starts to shake his head)

T: Sorry,  sir.  No,  we don't. 

P: poor service!

And T walked away and still apologising. (he looks busy)

P looks very angry.  But T handle it well.  It is not that nice to see that.  But the fact that T says sorry,  I feels that it is a right thing to do. 

Sometimes we need to lower our ego and apologise.  It doesn't mean you lose ,  but it means you are brave. In Islam,  the prophet says the most brave man is the one who can control his anger.  The trainman can just say rude words like,  "well sir if you don't like our service,  then don't use our service" .  (Familiar tak ayat ni, lols) 

In Malaysia,  with the issues related to cow's DNA and breastfeed,  politicians etc.  At one point,  I think they should just keel quiet. 

Think before you talk and control your emotion well.  You are intelligent,  so act like one.

Lesson learnt.

That's it for now.  Let's enjoy the view! May Allah bless!

Gereja dan Palestin

Assalamualaikum dan hi!

Tika mana Acheh dilanda Tsunami. Berpusu-pusu ahli geraja datang membantu.  (oh,  ahli masjid pun ada)

Tika mana Gaza diserang,  ahli gereja juga datang membantu. 

Aku bukan ingin menjadi seorang racist,  assabiyah atau sewaktu dengannya. 

Setuju,  bahawa ada juga organisasi Muslim seperti Muslim Care,  Aqsa Syarif etc datang membantu.  Bukan sedikit,  banyak. Sehingga kadang-kala diri kembali ke hidup selesa. 

Agak tersentak tika mana jelajah soloku ke bumi Edinburgh di musim festival yang menggila, ini yang aku jumpa. (rujuk gambar)

Terdetik di hati ingin pusing - pusing bandar bersejarah ini. Dan terlihat gereja di depan mata.  Tanpa fikir panjang,  kaki melangkah.  Ahh alangkah terkejut,  yangku jumpa adalah kempen kesedaran Gaza!

Walau hari-hari mailboxku terima berita tentang Palestine.  Adakah hatiku turut sama terbuka?

Sudahkah anda sedekah kepada Gaza hari ini?

Progresif atau agresif,  itu pilihan anda.  (bukan GHB ye.  Lols)
