My apologies…

Dear Friends,

Being human, I tend to err. In fact, I find myself in error most of the time, either with strangers or friends. Statistically though, I run afoul with friends and myself more than with people I don’t know. Probably this is a incurable defect in myself due to my incredibly small amygdala which is a part of the brain that controls human’s ability to socialise with others. Read the Star for a glimpse of this study.

Sorry #1: Im actually sorry!

Of Israelis, stickers and us…

Dear WordPress,

The situation has turned for the worst for both our brothers in Palestine as well as those in the ships carrying humanitarian aid. Yes, pick up any of today’s papers and you’ll know the story. I won’t be repeating those stories here. I’m writing here however on yet another lament of our Muslim brothers and sisters in Malaysia on their lackadaisical and wimpy attitude towards the Palestinians’ plight.

New Commodity Called Friends – Final

Tuan WordPress,

Seperti mana yang telah saya paparkan sedikit ulasan dan pengalaman saya berhadapan dengan senario masyarakat Melayu Islam Malaysia dan kegilaan mereka terhadap wang mudah (easy money), saya akan menutup isu ini once and for all. Namun sebelum itu, molek juga saya huraikan kenapa saya begitu bersikap hyper sceptical dan anti terhadap golongan ini.

Pertamanya, hendaklah kita semua sedar akan kedudukan kita di dunia ini (khalifatullah) dan matlamat hidup ini (menuju kejayaan dunia dan akhirat). Bukanlah saya ingin uar-uarkan bahawa penulis merupakan golongan yang confirmed an-naajihiin wal faaizin (orang-orang berjaya). Kerana pengakhiran hidup ini tiadalah siapa yang tahu melainkan Dia yang Maha Esa. Moga-moga kita semua tergolong dalam orang-orang yang menemui husnul khaatimah (kesudahan yang baik).

Adoi!

Dear WordPress,

This posting is with due respect to the Malaysian medical fraternity. I know most of them are hardworking and honest in their duties. I really give them the Official EPI Tabik Spring for jobs well done and the unworldly hours they have to endure daily in discharging their solemn duties. I can’t even begin to fantasize holding a job with such heretic schedules and pressure.

Lip Service… it’s just too cheap

Tuan WordPress,

Kalau diperhatikan diri aku sendiri ini, banyak sangat kelemahan dan celanya baik rupa dan amalan. Justeru tulisan aku kali ini aku tujukan kepada diri aku sendiri mudah-mudahan ada perubahan dan peringatan. (Sengaja aku tulis Bahasa Melayu kerana kali ini memang tahap kesabaran di bulan mulia ini betul-betul diuji).

Bangsa Melayu ku ini cukup mudah melafazkan kata-kata yang selalunya berbentuk lip service. Dengan kata lain, bila melihat musibah menimpa orang lain, asalkan tak perlu buat apa-apa atau tak perlu bersusah payah , memadailah sesetengah orang ini untuk berkata “Oh kesiannya…, tak patutnya, isk isk isk ada ke macam tu, tak baik buat macam tu…” dan sebagainya.

Rumah Amal Limpahan Kasih

Dear WordPress,

This morning as I began my morning by reading yesterdays’ Malay Mail (it’s the boss’ so it’s actually yesterday’s news ‘leftovers’), an article caught my attention. It is regarding a charity home for orphans situated in Puchong. The paper did an interview with the operators of the home and found out that the home needs some financial aid to buy land for expansion purposes. The seller of the land also has given them a discount of RM100,000 out of the RM300,000 market price. Nice!

RALK an acronym coined by the operators themselves, is asking for public donations in forms of subscription to its ‘waqaf share lots’; a fund raising mechanism popular nowadays which each lot (1 square feet) sold to the tune of RM150. In real sense, donations to such a worthy cause certainly entails ‘dividends’ and in this instance a guaranteed one. RALK also is providing care to not only orphans but also poor children, single mothers and simply put “everyone who need help” according to Mrs. Rabaah Abdul Aziz, the wife of Ustaz Md Zawawi Ramlihe the principal of RALK. The duo is further supported by a number of volunteers as they manage RALK’s day-to-day administration.

Rayuan Ramadhan 1430H- Updates

Dear WordPress,

This is an update on my posting regarding JIM’s efforts to organise a Ramadhan relief programme. Today they held a media conference and thus official launched its programme. I do hope it will garner enough support from fellow Muslims in Malaysia. I wish we organise something similar to a soup kitchen but for Muslims.

A soup kitchen according to Wikipedia, it is a place where food is offered to the hungry for free or at a reasonably lowprice. Frequently located in lower-income neighborhoods, they are often staffed by volunteerorganizations, such as church groups or community groups. It is called also a bread line or meal centre. I read once that a charity in Kuala Lumpur is doing just that on certain days. Interestingly enough, the charity which run the soup kitchen not only serve hot food at its centre but also go around handing packets of freshly cooked meals to homeless and the less fortunate in KL. What’s more it is halal food although the organisation is not of Muslim background.
