Alhamdulillah, its show time!

2.00 pm
Pejabat MARA Negeri Selangor, Shah Alam.

Destiny here I come,
Allah guide me through,
Faith keep me strong,
Brain, do come along!

Ohh dang, please don't tell me I recycled my resume.

Am I Bright Enough To Shine In Your Space.

Heres to the end of a week sent to test my metal. I've been tried and measured and I find myself sadly lacking. It seems my senses are so used to just feeling APATHY and BOREDOM, I can't deal with anger, rejection and hurt anymore.
No one is to blame, except this post SPM lifestyle.
Needless to say, everything came streaming down last week, tears, mucus and blood.

Well, that's that! Let the dead past bury its dead.

Count your blessings merciful Lord gave you a brand new week to redeem yourself and make amends.
Although, he kept the flu to remind you NOT to cry on the phone all night with the AC on at 16 degrees because of a boy. Comprende pas?

Watched Discovery Channel do a feature on Istanbul, (where I'd love to be taken to!). Lahanat punye sekular government. Until recently, it was illegal for women to wear the hijab to universities. BBC reported that they have eased the ban saying that now everyone has the right to get an education but the secularists are expected to rally against the constitutional amendments made.

"The changes state that only traditional scarves will be permitted in universities, tied loosely under the chin. Headscarves that cover the neck are still banned, as is the chador and the all-enveloping burka."

Turkey is a Muslim country, with strong secularist influence, a state that largely views commitment to faith and the wearing of the hijab as being "too Islamist" and a sign of "political Islam". To me this is utter nonsense!
Commitment to faith is commendable, not punishable.

Ya Allah, I guess we live in a twisted times, where right and wrong have been muddled and mistaken. When seeing things like this, you ask yourself, what can you do? It is our right to practise whatever religion we choose, and that itself means we can follow the teachings prescribed by that religion.

You talk about preserving human rights, but you know nothing about it.

They say, 'Oh, poor girl, you're so beautiful you know'
It's a shame that you cover up your beauty so.'
She just smiles and graciously responds reassuringly,
'This beauty that I have is just one simple part of me.
This body that I have, no stranger has the right to see.
These long clothes, this shawl I wear, ensure my modesty.
Faith is more essential than fashion, wouldn't you agree?
This hijab, This mark of piety,
Is an act of faith, a symbol,
For all the world to see.
A simple cloth, to protect her dignity.
So lift the veil from your heart to see the heart of purity.
They tell her, 'Girl, don't you know this is the West and you are free?
You don't need to be oppressed, ashamed of your femininity.'
She just shakes her head and she speaks so assuredly,
'See the bill-boards and the magazines that line the check-out isles,
with their phony painted faces and their air-brushed smiles?
Well their sheer clothes and low cut gowns they are really not for me.
You call it freedom, I call it anarchy.'

Thank god I live in Malaysia.

Who you calling tech challenged?

So I don't own a Twitter account,

And 24 hours ago I didn't own a blog,

I'm not any closer to owning an IPhone than I am to getting active on forsmspring,

But it doesn't mean I'm technologically challenged!

Having an FB account suffices right? Ingat aku baru keluar gua ke ape?
I'm no social butterfly here, I don't need many places for you to follow me or anything, I get that different people flock to their own forms of fun. So it wasn't very nice (or politically correct) for you to say I'm tech challenged. To each his own kan kan kan? Ala, but I'm so gullible, and this blog's existence was partly cuz of what you said. We gotta keep up with the parade right?
But I'm drawing the line at blogs, the rest.... it's going to take more than insults to get me on em!

laineee says:
you did??

laineee says:
but you have facebook!
maybe you just need to be more active

If Ee Laine agrees too then who am I to object. Hello blogging *applause*

Outta Thoughts? Wanna borrow mine?

Those who are so lost in their thoughts are like that because it's unfamilliar territory. The five that have been stewing in my upper storey,

1. 250,000 kids die of hunger worldwide daily.
(And here I was worrying about going on a diet...)

2. Average age for a Malaysian to lose their virginity is 9 years old.
(I always knew I wasn't an average Malaysian! 18 and proud of it!)

3. Hibernating animals are confused, their waking up to find winter isn't over and face freezing and starvation. (Blame global warming on yet another issue, next thing you know, it'll be snowing in KL and Asians would die first)

4. Names of MARA interview candidates due out on the 30th, interviews scheduled 14-16th April (Please God, don't tell me I recycled my resume, knowing me, I'll only find out at 11.30pm on the 13th of April)

5. Leeches, mossies and colon cancer love to date people who have A blood.
( I really can't find any significance, perhaps the antigens of A blood appeal to the bad things in life? This is really genetic pilih kasih, aint it?)

I shall stew over these some more, it does seem sometimes that I have nothing better to do....
