27 years old, 2007
To all my friends and my beloved students,
thanks for the wishes,thanks for the nice cards,thanks for the celebration parties,
thanks for the cakes and presents,thanks for everything.
I really appreciate it... May Allah bless all of u.

July.... hmmm...

On the 9th of July 2007, my friends and I celebrated my mum's birthday at my house. Before the celebration, my friends and I went to Tesco to buy some food and drinks (KFC and cake). I also bought tudung bawal to give to my mum for her present. Actually, I didnt plan the party. My parents were so happy and surprised on what I did that night. Wish u all the best mum! May Allah bless u with good iman, happiness, good health, prosperity and longevity.

On the same day, it was the first day i started teaching my students after a long final semester break. For this semester, I teach Sociology, Intro to Mass Media and Principle of Public Relations for part 1, 2 and 3 students. For new part one students, welcome to UiTM. ^_^v

On the 25th of July, I watched a movie "Love is Cinta" with my officemate... emm.. not bad. But I dont like the storyline, there was an angel which is not logic and a person who had died, alive!... Just like to see the way they made the film look very touching and a nice environment in Indonesia. As a Malaysian, I don't think people can accept that kind of story. But if it was made in western, I do think people can accept the story. I also had watched "transformer" with my bro this month. But I was sleeping when I was watching the movie as I was so tired... I need to watch it once again next time!

p/s: Last month, I bought a new laptop. I really want to have my own laptop since when i was a student. Finally I have it and I am going to use it for my teaching tool in class. I also bought a very cute house at Rembia Perkasa. I need to deduct my monthly salary a lot for that house. huhuhuuu...

Surah Yasin

Surah Ya-Sin is Known as the Heart of the Qur'an. Listed below are the benefits and virtues of learning and reading this beautiful Surah.

1. The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people' [Bazzar]. (S.Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Tafsir-al-Sabuni Vol.2)

2. The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'Whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur'an ten times.'[Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

3. It has been reported by Aisha (radiAllahu anha) that the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that there is a surah in the Qur'an that intercedes for its reciter and forgive its listener. Know! It is Surah Yasin. It is called 'Mu'amma' in the Torah. It was enquired, what is Mu'amma? The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'it embraces the person with the goodness of this world and removes the dismay of the Hereafter’ [Hashiya of Tafsir Jalalalayn , pg 368].

4. On the authority of Ma'qil ibn Yasar from the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'Recite Yasin on your deceased'[Abu Dawud, Nasa’I,Ibn Maja][Imam Nawawi, Al-Tibyan li-Hamalati’l-Qur’an pg 168].

5. The Prophet said, 'Whoever recited Surah Yasin in the night seeking Allah's pleasure, Allah would forgive him'[Ibn Hibban, Darimi 3283/A, Abu Yala, Tabarani, Baihaqi & Ibn Mardawaih]

Currently listening to...

Ruang Rindu - Letto

Di daun yang ikut mengalir lembut
terbawa sungai ke ujung mata
dan aku mulai takut terbawa cinta
menghirup rindu yang sesakkan dada

jalanku hampa dan kusentuh dia

terasa hangat oh didalam hati
kupegang erat dan kuhalangi waktu
tak urung jua kulihatnya pergi

tak pernah kuragu dan slalu kuingat
kerlingan matamu dan sentuhan hangat
ku saat itu mencari makna
tumbuhkan rasa yg sesakkan dada

reff :kau datang dan pergi oh begitu saja
smua kutrima apa adanya
mata terpejam dan hati menggumam
di ruang rindu kita bertemu

Visiting Oldfolks (Rumah Kenangan)

Thursday, on 10th of May 2007 (23 Rabiulakhir 1428), I went to Rumah Kenangan in Cheng with mr Antashah and few of students from uitm. There, we had a heart to heart conversation with them. I felt so pity to them as most of them have family (children, brothers and sisters) who were not willing to take care of them. Some of them volunteered to come here just to make sure their children (husband and wife) didn't get trouble with them. If they are lucky, their family members will visit them once in a month. But most of them are still waiting for their family members to visit them although they know that they will never ever come here to visit them.

My questions are, what is happening to our society now? Do they realized that they are doing something that can hurt them so much! Always make them feel so lonely, sad, useless and feel so pressure with the situation they are facing now! Do their children know that these elder people had sacrificed a lot to make sure that their children will be somebody or at least have a life? Did they forget that who are they now is because of them?

These people who are ignoring their parents (elder people) should not live in this world. They don't even feel that they have responsibilities towards them. I really hope one day, their children will make the same thing towards them. Actually, i really like the petronas advertisement during last time raya 2006. It has a good moral value. I still remember the phrase, "abah jgn lupa pakai lampin tau". What u did to your parents, one day, your children will do the same thing to you.

As a sociology lecturer, I always discus about this issue. I always remind them to remember their responsibility as children towards their parents. Some of my students has done this research to study in details about the problems. They have done their observation, interviewed them and given questionnaires to the public.

I also always think what will happen to our society for another 10 years from now? I am really sure they are becoming more advance, liberal, open minded and more success. But, how about in term of their attitudes and ethics? Are they becoming better? You think about it...

p/s: after that, we went to Pengkalan Balak beach for breakingfast and celebrated mr antashah and his student birthday. Thank you for inviting me. I am really appreciate it.

What did I do today?

-helping my mother cooked before going to university.
-taking my friend from his home for breakfast (just accompanying him for drink) early in the morning at Water Lily, Medan Selera.

Delegates from Saudi Arabia "Ahlan Wasahlan"

Saturday, 5th of May 2007, the delegates from Saudi Arabia visited UiTM Malacca campus for academic purpose. I was chosen by Corporate Relations department to entertain the guest here. Most of the delegates are master students who are studying here in Malaysia. They also brought their family members here to look around Malacca. At UiTM, I brought them to our new building, showed them our dining hall, mosque, library and lake. They were very excited. Hehehe... I also gave briefing to them about Malacca history and storied to them a little bit about Malacca culture. I am so expert for this as I am teaching sociology subject, and I explain to them in depth about Baba and Nyonya here in Malacca. Then, we moved to town. I showed them to our UiTM city campus in town. We went to level 16 at City Campus. Once again they felt so excited as they can see the whole town and sea from there. Actually, that also was the first time for me went to level 16 at city campus. I also felt the same thing. huhuhu... Level 16 is a room for UiTM director, Dr Mizan. The room is very nice. Lastly, I brought them to the biggest shopping complex in Malacca, Dataran Pahlawan in Bandar Hilir. We took few pictures there, said good bye and left them there for shopping. I know they will buy a lot of things and hopefully they will enjoy shopping there. This is a very good experience for me to entertain guest from abroad. Fuuhh... that's all. -end-

Yesterday (The Beatles)

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they\'re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I\'m not half the man I used to be
There\'s a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, I yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go
I don\'t know she wouldn\'t say

I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go
I don\'t know she wouldn\'t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

Picnic at Pantai Puteri...^o^ hohoho

Yesterday, on 28th of April 2007 (Saturday), a few of my friends and I went to picnic at Pantai Puteri in Sungai Udang, Malacca. We departed from Alor Gajah at 10am. It took us almost 40 minutes to arrive there. There, we brought our own food such as curry puff, spaghetti mi, mee hun, junk food, some drinks and other necessary stuff such as dam, pillow and a ball. We swam happily more than half an hour. This is because, I have not been at sea/beach for quite some times!.... huhuhu... Then, we played dam ular (snake and ladder game) for another half an hour. I won for the second place. Yippie!!! We ate there during lunch hour. Luckily, the guys didn't need to prepare the food. The food was prepared by ain, poche and mil. My friends ajib, azam and naza just bought food at Tesco last night. Hahahaa... Is it fair? The place was quite nice and peaceful. There were a lot of family members brought their kids there. I felt so relax and relief a lot after struggling marking my students' assignments and facing a lot of obstacles in life..hua hua hua... Ok la, I am going to sleep now. Good nite.... -_-zzz

p/s: Tomorrow on Sunday, I need to invigilate Diploma Pentadbiran Awam students (part 4) at 9am but need to be at uitm at 8am -_-; fuuuh... so tired maaa..

UiTM Sports Day

Friday, 20th of April 2007, surprisingly my futsal team (AGOI) the combination between masscomm lecturers and english lecturers won the futsal game. At the first round , we defeated pak guard team 3-0. Then we got draw when competing lecturers from faculty of business 1-1. The next rounds, we won all the games by defeating Faculty of Art and Design 4-1, Library Department 2-1 and at final match, which we continued at night, we won against Maintenance department for 4-2. The total of futsal teams that participated were 8 teams. We played 5 games which 4 wins and 1 draw. We were also surprised as Dr Mizan (pengarah) also came during the game to support all the team players. Congratulations to all my team members. Although we didn't really prepare for the games, yet we still can win because of the high spirit of team work. Well done!

p/s: we played just for fun. I was really excited and enjoyed the game so much! \^o^/

T_T .......jogging !!!

Today, once again I went to jog with my father. This time, I managed to make 3 rounds! Mwahahahaaa... After jogging, I did aerobic for 15 minutes. There, at Stadium Tun Fatimah, they provide the fasilitator for aerobic three times a week which are on monday, thursday and friday. The conclusion is, I am ready to play futsal tomorrow with a very high spirit. Jeng...jeng...jeng... U just wait!

p/s: I almost finish marking all my students assignment. Yippiee!!! ^o^

Walking or Jogging ???

Today, after doing some works at my office, i decided to go to jog. Actually, i decided to go to jog yesterday, but unfortunately, I had a meeting with pengarah until 6.00pm!! Finally, i have time to go to jog at Tun Fatimah Stadium near to Malacca town. I went there at 6.15pm with my beloved father. The place is very nice. I managed to jog for 2 rounds only. I felt very tired and exhausted. Most of the time, I just walked there..hehe.. It only took 40minutes je to jog there. I also tried to take some pictures there but unfortunately, my hand phone battery was very low. Next time, I will take few pictures and put them at my blog. Mwahahahaaa...

I also realized that my stamina is very low. Last time, when I played Futsal with my students during Fesscomm Day, I only can stand for 10 minutes only! That's why the lecturers lost when competing with their students. No doubt about it! We played just for fun ok. "Kasi can kat korang menang" :)This coming Friday, I still have another Futsal competition among academic and non-academic staff in uitm. So, I must start training now to improve my stamina. huhuhu... Starting from today, I will try to jog at least three times a week. I want jogging, to be part of my habits. Thanks abah for accompanying me to jog today. I really appreciate it!!!

Marking Time !!! chaiyo x2!

I just feel want to write something... Actually, i have just arrived at my home. Last two days, I visited my grandparents in Gombak. Alhamdulillah, both of them looked very healthy. I also went to Jaya Jusco at Wangsa Maju for window shopping and ate at KFC with my aunty and causin. I didnt have friends at my grandparents house area. So, i just spent my whole time with my family members.

Starting from tomorrow is a study week for uitm students. Study week for students means marking week for lecturers. I still have a lot of assignments to mark. I have done marking for Sociology and Mass Media subjects. Except for fundamental critical thinking and writing subject, i still have a lot to check. This is because, this subject has no final exam. But yet, there are a lot of case studies, journals and other writing assignments that students need to do. Hopefully my students have done well for their assignments.

After marking all these assignments, i need to invigilate students examination. I heard that i need to invigilate students at UiTM Bandar campus as i stay in town. So, for those students who want to see me, make sure u make an appointment with me first. Lastly, insyaallah I will let u know your on going assessments by next week.regards,mr rauf 16.4.2007 / sunday / 9pm ^_^p/s: i feel so bored staying at home. cant wait to go to office 2moro and do some works. hehe...
