998 Days of Happiness

Assalamualaikum and how are you people? It's being a tough life lately because I was busy with my studies in Minden. Now I got a chance to tell you guys what happened throughout almost one year disappeared from blogging. Well, it doesn't matter to you guys, but this matters to me and my best friend. It was a great time spent by this happy couple for 998 days since they met during freshmen.
          My friend met his girl when they attended the same lecture hall in the first semester. He was a latecomer at that time because he entered our university almost one month later than his batch. At first, he tried so hard to adapt to a new culture (because he went from a non-Malaysian education culture). I always spent my time with him all day long and show him several basic information that he can use to survive in our university like bus commuter schedule and so on.
          He is a fast learner and an inquirer student and always keep up to date with his environment including his group assignment (even though he's late). He told me that his girl was his groupmate for a university course and they worked cooperatively and performed better than other group mates. After one semester, both of them studied together and he always took his girl places of interests in Penang because he loves travelling so do to this girl.
          Time goes by, during sophomore, their relationship is getting stronger and sweeter as they rely on each other during happy days and tough times. Both of them were active students but they do not work together because my friend was active in residents' council while his partner joined a youth volunteer secretariat. They share their happiness and tell stories about themselves almost every time even though they were busy with assignments and projects.
          I love seeing them like that because my friend was very happy. He ever told me that his life at that moment was full of stars in the sky or a rainbow after the rain. I felt happy for him because he found a partner that suits his life. His girl is adorable, kind and lovely. She was a kindhearted person and always care about my friend. I can still remember when my friend was ill, she helped him and comfort him by taking him to the clinic nearby. So glad to have her that loved so much at my friend.
          However, their relationship has ups and downs. They seldom fought each other or having little conflicts. Because they love and appreciate each other. I respect their relationship and love to see them together until one day, during junior year. My friend did something bad to her. He actually intended to help his widowed uncle to find a new partner for him during Eid by using a dating app.
          His uncle was unable to access the application, but as he trusted his uncle, he let his uncle do the job. However, his uncle used the application without his notification until my friend got caught by his girl. They had a cold war at that time because after Eid we have a final examination. My friend told me that he wanted to surprise his girl during the 1000th day of the anniversary of their relationship and solve everything on that day.
          Sadly on their 998th days of love, his girl asked for a breakup and he cried so badly. I try to comfort him and ask what's going on. He admitted his mistakes and beg his girl to stay with him. But, it was too late for him to do so. I felt very sorry to him and asked her to tell her for another chance. But, he admitted that his girl always gave him chances but she cannot stand longer. It was the hardest day for him as it was not his intention to be a player. He loved his girl so much. May Allah S.W.T. help him and nurture his broken heart. I might not able enough to cure him, but I will try my best to cheer him up.

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

Assalamualaikum and how are you guys? Yeah, it's been a long time not updating my blog (coughing). I don't care if you guys wanna read what I'm going to write here but, I really hope that this message will give you guys hope and inspiration to continue with your life. As for your information, I love observing people around me. Studying their behaviour and attitudes which helps me to improve myself.
          I met a girl who is slightly younger than me from my campus years ago. She is a nice person. She is beautiful, brilliant and very kind-hearted person. Although her first impression doesn't cover her real appearance as an extraordinary student. Her behaviour doesn't change since I met her and we had shared our life stories and interests together. It was a positive feedback for our relationship as both of us trust each other.
          One day, she told me about her pasts (in the relationship). I didn't expect that she's gonna tell me her private stories as before this we always talk about our campus life and our goals and problems in lives. I lend my ears to hear her stories that shocked me for a sudden. My expectation towards her changes a lot (even though I still accept the truth). Time changes and she wants to make herself a better person.
          I felt sorry for her about her dark pasts and told her to move on to a better life but she's worried about her past that can make her life wreckless in the future. I'm curious about it. I asked her but she didn't tell me. Therefore, I try to figure out what happened to her in the past that makes her scared or anxious about it. By using information technology as my secondary source, I try to study her case.
          It took about months to know her better (her case doesn't interrupt my studies). However, the outcome is precious. It was like solving a jigsaw puzzle which requires analytical and logical thinking technique. Her extraordinary character proves to me that she is genuine and trying to improve herself to become a better person. Until now, I tell her that 'every cloud has a silver lining' which means she should never feel hopeless because difficult times always lead to better days.
          She needs hope and someone to take care of her (even she has her family). I promised her that I will cherish her life and give her happiness. I want to bring her up and make her happy. May Allah S.W.T. ease her and make her happy.

Alam Tanah Air

Dadanya menyapu awan berarak lalu,
Rambutnya mengirai urai mengalun lagu,
Dari puncaknya segar mengalir dingin air,
Itulah gunung tanah tercinta bangsaku,

Dengarlah bisik gemersik sungai jernih,
Burung-burung berkicau melayang di tebingnya,
Di sini ikan bermain di lumut batu,
Di sini petani merasakan nikmat dinginmu,

Pantainya tempat berteduh tiap hati,
Di hujung alisnya gigi air membelai lembut,
Salam dari gelombang membawa suara nelayan,
Laut melambai paut memberi rezeki hidup,

Sawah ladang pepohon dan tanah subur,
Petani kehitaman dipanggang matahari,
Dusun dan belukar yang berzaman-zaman,
Rakyatlah ahli waris pemilik segalanya.

Festival Mahasiswa Anak Pulau Pinang (FESMAPP)

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful. Gratefully, after a long time been silence, here I wanna share a bit of my experience recently, Festival Mahasiswa Anak Pulau Pinang which was organized by Persatuan Gabungan Anak Pulau Pinang (GAPP) Universiti Sains Malaysia with the collaboration of Universiti Teknologi MARA Penang campus. The event was held for three days at Universiti Sains Malaysia. Participated by 9 public universities and 4 private institutions throughout Malaysia. This particular festival is the first ever event made to unite Penangites who are studying in higher institutions in this nation.
          I have learned a lot about commitment and team building from this event. Talk about event management which involves other universities is not a bed of roses. Lots and lots of preparations we have done since previous semester. And the pressure keeps on rising with the burden of assignments, exams and other jobs on us. Although we have done our preparations very well but unfortunately, there still challenges come towards us. Last minute changes from other parties, one of our team has been involved in the road accident, and so on.
Impromptu meeting with my old pal, Mathiswaran.
          These problems that we have faced throughout the event have made us care each other. We are not just only a team but we are more likely as a family. As mentioned by our big brother (Project Manager), Brother Faiz Fateh, this project was planned since three years behind. Alhamdulillah, finally we able to unite Penangites from universities in this country and have made it!
          As I am getting older, those bittersweet moments that I have faced from this event will make me matured. Experiences are the sources of knowledge. They can teach you how to survive in reality, how to be a real human and so on and so forth. Dear readers, let us dive in the ocean of experience by participating any event management as you only live once. Choices are in our hands, you choose, you deserve it. The only you choose what you want to do, DO NOT ever give up! There is always a solution for any problem. Last but not least, every obstacle in our life makes us bitter or better, every problem comes to break us or make us. The choice is ours whether we become victim or victor.

Quote of the Life

Sometimes Allah breaks our spirit to save our soul,
Sometimes Allah breaks our heart to make us whole,

Sometimes Allah allows pain so we can be stronger,
Sometimes Allah sends us failure so we can be humble,

Sometimes Allah takes everything He gave us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.

Make plans but understand that we live by Allah's grace.
