animes vs. movies

It's very, very nice not to have headache for erm 3 days already =) alhamdulillah...

School's starting again next monday, and I'm very nervous because tomorrow my CGPA results will be out. Please pray for the best!
Ya Allah... Please grant me the best result...

Anyways,
This hol is starting to get a li'l bit boring.
But to my surprise, usually hols will get boring after 5 days. This time - two week ^__^
and now I'm 'craving' for computer games and movies. FYI, I don't watch a lot of movies, and I rarely do doing schooldays, so this hols I'm watching Prison Break and Stargate (my favourite fiction movie since childhood haha)... Not forgetting watching Naruto ^__^
I don't know where all my CDs has gone, but none of the games are around to be seen... So I just download some boring stuff from the internet, like- erm, Zuma, Dynomite, Scrabble... It's fun, but I've been playing it for the past year... Oh I really want a strategy game...

Hah! Something interesting!
My e-pal Zafran in Sri Lanka (oh, am I right? Man I can forget things very easily I'm so sorry) was very surprised that we 'teens' in Malaysia are big fans of animes!!! I thought it was a normal thing since many of my siblings, friends and I here grew up with Japanese comics like Dragon Ball and so many more... So it's already like - a culture?? - in Malaysia.
Uhh... That sounds so bad... Foreign influence...

But I personally think animes should be much better compared to Hollywood (and also Bollywood) movies... I mean from the perspective of the impact they bring to our lives... You don't look at or treat anime characters like idols, big figures or a cool thing to be followed. Valueless western lifestyle, trends, ideologies and mind-settings are influencing every aspect of the Muslims' lives in the east, particularly Malaysia - which is, I know you agree, a total destruction.
Unlike animes, you don't follow what they do, how they think and live, their trends and what not... Maybe you'd learn some things, but the negative impacts on us Muslims are much less compared to that brought by the western movies.
I don't say all animes are good, and I don't say all western movies are bad. It actually really depend on how each individual treat it...

So, the most important thing - make sure they don't control you, but you control what's going into your head through your eyes and ears and other senses, and you control your feelings and thoughts, you decide how to live.

So finally I write a piece that's not empty for others.
It's really a reminder for all, especially me.

Ya Allah... Guide me towards You,
every step of my life,
I'll need You...

p/s: Zafran, please don't get offended with any of these. I don't mean to. Thanks for 'opening my eyes' a li'l bit more ^__^

Waah... Budak² perempuan pun tgk anime and main game jugak eh..? Tapi I do agree with you on one thing, the usual japanese anime like naruto kureng sikit impact or effect dier kat muslims macam kita... Tak lah mcm bollywood and hollywood, yang ada *****, dan ******.
