the classic IQ test...

i think this result is directly influenced by my 'attachment' to engineering. maths and graphics aaalll the waaay....
bcoz previous tests say i'm better at other stuff...

but I'm certainly going to pursue my studies in Computer Information & Electronics Engineering, nsyaAllah!!!
although it seems very tough and stressful, i like the course for some un-explain-able reasons...

please do pray for me ^__^

*** i need to be infected by examingitis now!!! ***

Take this test!

You have a strong ability to process visual-spatial and mathematical information. These skills combined with your strengths in logic are what make you a Visual Mathematician.

You're able to understand patterns visually and in numbers. That means your mind can create a mental picture for any problem. In addition to that skill, you possess an intelligence that allows you to apply math to that picture, too. That helps you manipulate multiple parts of the picture (or problem) to come up with a solution.

You have many skills that are critical to success and problem-solving. Your talents help you understand the "big picture," which is partly why people may turn to you for direction — especially in the workplace. You flourish in environments where tasks are clearly defined, and you are a whiz at improving processes and making things more efficient. Your ability to detect patterns and your skills in math and logic, make it natural for you to come up with ideas and theories that simplify processes for everyone.

Outside of work, Visual Mathematicians tend to do well at strategic activities like chess. It must be that ability to recognize patterns — both as they are and how they develop. Regardless of how you put your mind to use, you've got a great set of talents. You will be able to envision a clear path and calculate the risks, and more importantly, the rewards, of anything you take on.

s t r e n g t h

I have a very bad headache
for more than 5 days...
altho it slowly started on the first day of 'Eid
and increased exponentially...
it's a combination of what u see in d pic above:
cluster, tension, migraine +
what's not in d pic: pain at the back of the head & neck

one evening,
i was lying on the floor
crying so bad
punching my temple with my knuckles
when i got a very vEry beautiful 'present'...

"semoga Nela tak tewas dgn ujian ni..
al-Ankabut ayat 2
hadiah utk Nela.."

Do men think that they will be left alone on saying,
"We believe",
and that they will not be tested?

Once, I was drowning in my fears
and the twinkle in my eye disappeared
and I had no way to look on
my horizon seemed to have gone
and my whole life, seemed empty and bleak
each day and night, the answers I seek

But when, the darkness seemed so strong
and I couldn`t go on
to the sky I raised my hands
making right what was so wrong
I found the strength to carry on
up to heaven where I belong
In life, there are lessons to be learned
with steadfastness, Paradise is earned
and if, all hope seems to be gone
just hold on till after the storm
and if you ask, what purpose have I
why am I here, and why do I cry?

And when, the darkness seems so strong
and you just cant go on
pray for your helping hand
you`ll see the sun will rise again
you`ll find the strength to carry on
up to heaven where you belong
Coz life is but a journey for us all
we cry, we laugh, we run sometimes we fall
but through it all, always recall
God never gives, a burden too tall

God never gives, a burden too tall

but i still don't know how will i go through the next two weeks...
Assignments --> 22/10, 23/10
Tests --> 22/10, 25/10, 27/10
Final Exam --> 29/10, 31/10, 4/11, 4/11
ya Allah... I need strength and patience...
and a working brain...

appreciation: ^__^ u know who u are
all praises: my Creator

The Law of The Garbage Truck...

Beware of Garbage Trucks
by David J. Pollay

How often do you let other people's nonsense change your mood?

Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day? Unless you're the Terminator, for an instant you're probably set back on your heels.

However, the mark of a successful person is how quickly he/she can get back her focus on what's important.

Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson. I learned it in the back of a New York City taxi cab. Here's what happened.

I hopped in a taxi, and we took off for Grand Central Station. We were driving in the right lane when, all of a sudden, a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car's back end by just inches!

The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident, whipped his head around and he started yelling bad words at us.

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was friendly.

So, I said, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'

And this is when my taxi driver told me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. And if you let them, they'll dump it on you.

When someone wants to dump on you, don't take it personally. You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. You'll be happy you did.

So this was it: The 'Law of the Garbage Truck.'

I started thinking, how often do I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? And how often do I take their garbage and spread it to other people: at work, at home, on the streets?

It was that day I said, 'I'm not going to do it anymore.' I began to see garbage trucks.I see the load they're carrying. I see them coming to drop it off.

And like my Taxi Driver, I don't make it a personal thing; I just smile, wave, wish them well, and I move on.

One of my favorite football players of all time, Walter Payton, did this every day on the football field. He would jump up as quickly as he hit the ground after being tackled. He never dwelled on a hit. Payton was ready to make the next play his best.

Good leaders know they have to be ready for their next meeting.

Good parents know that they have to welcome their children home from school with hugs and kisses. Teachers and parents know that they have to be fully present and at their best for the people they care about.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let Garbage Trucks take over their day.

What about you? What would happen in your life, starting today, if you let more garbage trucks pass you by? Here's my bet. You'll be happier.

So.. Love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Believe that everything happens for a reason.

If you get a chance , TAKE IT! If it changes your life , LET IT! Nobody said it would be easy... They just promised it would be worth it!

What Is Your Animal Personality?

Take this quiz!


Make A Quiz More Quizzes Grab Code

cuba la bagi pigeon ke.. yg chumeyl2 sket arr huhu o_O" ade ke crow pnye personality mcm ni?? intelligent----~~??? (i never know crows are intelligent)

huhu... FYI, i used to hate crows like anything coz they seem to be so ugly n dirty n disgusting... ye lah, all crows in the South East Asia like to mess with the rubbish bin and dumping places and those kind of stuff...

anyways, actually for the past month i've been thinking A LOT about this very true attitude of mine --- "poking my beak into places it doesn't belong"...
since I've started walking on the path of life 'with the end in my mind', i've received comments about myself, directly and indirectly. basically, those sentences and expressions can all be concluded simply into one statement: "Please mind your own business, because I can lead a merrier life without your interference".

well, i don't know if I'm exaggerating with the statement, but really... u get what i mean right? in other words, i mean, what makes you feel really contented and happy - if it's not the sense of accomplishment - when you get to share with people you care for - about things you get in this life - especially the greatness of Allah and sweetness of iman - ??? hey, i'm not trying to sound good here...

hmm... but i really hope my dear friends in my life will read this piece, especially those who misunderstood my intention due to the ugly nature of what-i-associate-with-crows... but i guess they'll be too busy to visit my blog...

so, dear readers, any advice? ^__^

huhu... i really hope...
the effort will be counted as a bunch of good deeds...
ya Allah...
please help me through this life...
for You have created me with this responsibility...
and only You have Power over all things...

i don't want to say goodbye!!! T__T

Ramadhan akan tinggalkan kita semua sehari lagi...
Entah akan berpeluang bertemu semula
dengan Ramadhan tahun depan...

Ya Rabbul-Izzati,
Semoga kami tidak tergolong di kalangan orang yang rugi...
Terimalah segala amalan kami ya Allah...
Terimalah semua doa kami ya Allah...
Terimalah tiap titis air mata yang kami tumpahkan ya Allah...
Semoga curahan air mata kami dapat menyimbah api nerakaMu
dari membakar diri-diri kami ya Allah...

Ya Mujiibu-du'a...
Perkenankanlah doa-doa kami...
Berikan yang terbaik buat kami di dunia ini dan di akhirat kelak...
Kuatkan diri-diri kami...
Agar kami dapat terus melangkah ke hadapan...
dan terus hidup...
hanya untukMu...
hanya keranaMu...
ya Allah...

semoga diberi berpeluang bertemu lagi...
Ramadhan yang penuh barakah...

Ramadhan 1428

towards the final destination...

Everything - Every Single THING - in this world
belongs to ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY...

My phone accessory the Palestine flag from Syria... (lost)

My phone bought in Makkah... (stolen)

and above all...
My 20 years of life... (still available, ALHAMDULILLAH!)


announcement first:

my phone (and my Dad's Canon digital camera) got stolen yesterday morning. so I would like to inform everyone that you'll not be able to contact me via phone for some time... It's also nice if you can e-mail or IM me ur phone no. if you think I'll need it ^__^


I turned 20 last Friday, 5 October 2007... and it's making me feel all tensed up... every second that passes by means I'm nearer to the end... yet, what have I done in this world to prepare for the next???


but alhamdulillah, I'm still alive today, I'm still a Muslim today, and I'm still given the chance by Almighty Allah to venture on this earth and prepare myself for the next eternal world...

Utmost thanks to my Beloved Mother Laili for everything you've given and taught me for the past 20 years... And also to my Respected Father Johari for everything you've provided to make my life better...

Great appreciation to my VIPs who never stopped supporting me and pray for me and advice me and helped me in every way they can and to be a better person... and yeah, healthier too... ^__^ thanks for everything ya!! may Allah bless and bless and bless you all forever...

Thanks to my Engineering colleagues who bashed up a surprise party for me and two other (a-year-older) birthday girls Geeb & Syira in d middle of d night while I was cracking my head completing my 20-pages workshop case study. Da blueberry cheesecake and Domino's Pizza... and not forgetting the candles and the clear night sky with stars... was really cool and made me relax (a little)! Paan need d pics!!!

And friends, I would like to apologize for every single wrong deed I've done, and especially for not being able to reply your birthday-wish messages. I was really busy for the week(s) and got really exhausted. And now I can't recall all your names here bcoz I don't have my phone anymore... I mean, yeah, it's one of my harddisks...

Anyways thanks to everyone who prayed for me. I hope the increase in my age is a reminder to me and everyone, that as every second passes by, we are surely nearer to six feet underground... Let's all strive our best to prepare for the eternal Hereafter...

ربنا اتنا في الدنيا حسنة و في الأخرة حسنة وقنا عذاب النار

"Jadilah khalifah yang tabah...
Never, never give up!!!"

Sebuah Pertemuan ^__^

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

"Indeed, the Believers are those who,
when Allah is mentioned, feel a tremor in their hearts,
and when they hear His revelations rehearsed,
find their faith strengthened,
and put (all) their trust in their Lord "

... Sebuah Pertemuan ...

Ketika diri mencari sinar
Secebis cahaya menerangi laluan
Adakalanya langkahku tersasar
Tersungkur di lembah kegelapan

Bagaikan terdengar bisikan rindu
Mengalun kalimah menyapa keinsafan
Kehadiranmu menyentuh kalbu
Menyalakan obor pengharapan

Tika ku kealpaan kau bisikkan bicara keinsafan
Kau beri kekuatan tika aku diuji dengan dugaan
Saatku kehilangan keyakinan kau nyalakan harapan
Saatku meragukan keampunan Tuhan
Kau katakan rahmatNya mengatasi segala

Menitis airmataku keharuan
Kepada sebuah pertemuan
Kehadiranmu mendamaikan
Hati yang dahulu keresahan

Cinta yang semakin kesamaran
Kau gilap cahaya kebahagiaan
Tulus keihkhlasan menjadi ikatan
Dengan restu kasihMu oh Tuhan

Titisan airmata menyubur cinta
dan rindupun berbunga
Mekar tidak pernah layu
Damainya hati yang dulu resah keliru

Cintaku takkan pudar diuji dugaan
Mengharum dalam harapan
Moga kan kesampaian kepada tuhan
Lantaran diri hamba kerdil dan hina

Menitis airmataku keharuan
Kepada sebuah pertemuan
Kehadiranmu mendamaikan
Hati yang dahulu keresahan

Syukur sungguh di hati ini
Dikurniakan teman sejati
Menunjuk jalan dekatinya
Tika diri dalam kebuntuan

Betapa aku hargai
Kejujuran yang kau beri
Mengajarku mengenal erti
Cinta hakiki yang abadi

Tiada yang menjadi impian
Selain rahmat kasihmu tuhan
Yang terbias pada ketelusan
Sebuah kurniaan untuk kehidupan
Bernama Qur'an

terkenang saat berkenalan semula denganMu...
aku mohon...
mohon dengan sangat, Ya Rahman...
supaya ditetapkan,
dan dikuatkan diriku...
untuk terus melangkah di atas jalanMu...
Ramadhan 1425
Ramadhan 1428
ya Rahiim...
mohon dengan sangat...

I ask myself tonight!

I ask myself tonight!
By Sound Vision Staff Writer

"Oh how swiftly, it's mid-Ramadan now
I sit here, wondering and thinking
Have I spent my first days of Ramadan fruitfully?
Or have I wasted
the time unknowingly?"

Ramadhan comes, for a short month it's
Will I ever meet the Ramadan next year?
Allah Oh Allah, help me
guide my heart through
For only You know, if I've devoted enough to You."
-excerpts of the poem "Not done enough this Ramadan" by Udiana Jamalludin

Ramadan, as usual, has flown by. Despite planning beforehand, many of us may have gotten caught up in a routine after accustoming ourselves to the change in schedule the blessed month brings.

This may have affected our initial plans to increase our worship, contemplation and to seek Allah's Forgiveness and Mercy with greater fervor. But the last ten days and nights of Ramadan are still ahead for us to benefit from. Ask yourself these questions and see what you can do to make the most of what's left of Ramadan this year, Insha Allah.

1. Have I kept pace with the amount of Quran I wanted to read, or have I fallen behind?

2. If so, how much do I have to read on a daily basis the rest of Ramadan to catch up?

3. Have I tried to attend Tarawih regularly, or did I use weak excuses to get out of it?

4. Did I ever pray the night prayer?

5. Did I try praying my five daily prayers with more sincerity, concentration, and focus than usual?

6. Did I invite anyone over for Iftar (breaking the fast)?

7. Did I help any needy person, even a panhandler or beggar, when I was fasting?

8. Did I regularly seek Allah's Forgiveness and Mercy with sincerity, fear and hope?

9. Did I encourage my family to fast or participate in regular opportunities for more rewards that come with Ramadan (i.e. good deeds in general, but also Tarawih, more reading of the Quran, etc.).

10. Did I memorize any more Quran than what I knew before Ramadan started?

11. Did I try to be more patient in Ramadan than I normally am?

12. Did I try to control my anger, especially while fasting?

13. Did I try harder to avoid backbiting and slander?

14. Did I constantly check my intentions, to make sure that my good deeds were for the sake of Allah alone, not to impress others, gain their favor, or to show off?

15. Was there even an atom of pride in my heart?

16. Was I quieter and more contemplative?

17. Did I cry in my prayers?

18. Did I read more Islamic literature apart from the Quran?

19. Did I make sincere repentance to Allah, really feeling sorry for my sins?

20. Did I forgive those who hurt me?

21. Did I avoid hurting anyone with my attitude, words, intentions or actions?

22. Did I give any more Sadaqah (charity) than I normally give?

23. Did I share the message of Ramadan and Islam with a non-Muslim?

24. Did I share the message of Ramadan and Islam with a non-practicing Muslim family member or friend?

25. Did I feel annoyed at being hungry while fasting or did I rejoice?
