happy mother's day!

My mother is one of the most positive people I have ever known, and I have learned so much from her throughout my life. No matter the situation or how bad things appeared, she always looked on the bright side. Her entire world as a housewife might be caving in, but it was still a 'great day'. Have you ever been around people like that?

I called it 'active hope'.That kind of relentless hope is contagious. She always happy-delighted that Allah had given her a brand new day- and she know that, tomorrow was going to be even better.

One year ago, I received my SPM result and with self-cofidence, sure, I thought I will get straight A's....but,unfortunately, I just got 9A1 and 1 B3...huh?....I thought B3 is a biology subject but, it was an English subject...!...English?..

While my parents hugged me and said" Congratz" many times, I keep asking myself...why English?...I'm not a loser in English, I used to get highest mark in my class before..and for sure,i cant apply for any scholarship to pursue my study at overseas..

I began to sulk and then I began to list all my success from PTS (Penilaian Tahap Rendah) until PMR, results were always - flying colour-I was a perfectionist before- how tragic it was for me, I tend to climb to the peak of Everest and that day, I was buried in the ground.

I let my negative comments pour out of my mouth while Ibu just looked at me with an upbeat smile, the same she always had, and after I finished my pity party, she simply replied, "Well, you had a great life, my son- You always tend to get good grades, and wow, 9A's,,what a great gift..! and everyone is happy with ur result"...yeah..i can see my abah with his happy face, my friends, my teachers..hmm.."i dont know,Ibu, maybe, u'r right"
now, I always want to improve my English and one of my alternative ways is through blogging.=)

And when I didn't get JPA scholarship for PILN and just get it for local university, Monash University,Sunway...I started to think my dream is over..but, she said " There are thousands out there want to get JPA scholarship, but Thank God.. you get it and also get a chance to pursue your studies as medical student rite?"..then, I asked JPA to change my scholarship for Monash U to IIUM..wooh..

What an amazing way of thinking!.No matter what circumstances comes along,that woman always has a great attitude.

Did she recognize the reality of harsh situation and struggle?..Sure she did! her childhood,she just a daughter came from very poor family, and she managed to achieve her dream to become a teacher...!

What she chose to do about those situations was something else entirely.She chose to have hope that a better day was coming, and to believe that God always has everything under control. I realize now that I actually grew up in a household with a motivational person. She continually saw the positive side to every difficulties in life.

Although her food and lifestyle choices have not always been the best, my mother is getting older now but she is still experiencing vibrant health. I believe much of that good health is due her amazing ability to control her thought life. She tell herself what she is going to think, rather than allowing circumstances and problems in life to dictate her attitude.

A positive attitude won't give you everything in life, but it will bring you more than negative thinking. The way we think is a choice. So if you have a chance to choose one attitude or another, choose to be positive.We become what we think about. A person is what they think about all day long.

Our thoughts have tremendous power. if you sow a thought, you reap an action, if you sow an action, you reap a habit, if you sow a habit, you reap character, and if you sow character, you reap a destiny for a lifetime.

What we continually think about today determines who we will become tomorrow. What does that means to us?...It's simple- we have to change the way we think..!..Controlling our thought life is extremely important..!

p/s: thank you,Ibu, I will be a good son for you, happy mother's day everyday!

Break the siege..!

salam and heya..!

it's been awhile i didnt post any post for this week.okey, i dont want to post about 'Iron man 2' or ' Rossa Concert'

I just want to post about my family,my brothers, my sisters in Gaza.=(
Poster above is about event to help Gazans that always in poor condition. There is some info about this campaign and also siege that make Palestine like a cage.

Lifeline 4 Gaza is a collaborative effort between Malaysian NGOs to join an international campaign to break years of Israel siege on Gaza. They are working along with Free Gaza Movement who is based in Cyprus, IHH in Turkey, MERC and Kispa Indonesia, and other NGOs from USA, Greece, France, Sweeden, Germany, Italy, Venezuella and many more.

The flotilla is expected to depart Istanbul on 15th May 2010, comprising 20 ships and cargo boats to be laden with building supplies, generators, medical equipment and educational materials. They will sail through the Mediterranean Sea, carrying members of Parliament from countries around the world as well as high-profile journalists and human rights activists.

why break the siege?

The siege or blockade of Gaza started in June 2007. The blockade was supported by the governments of Egypt and the USA, among other nations. It consists of a land blockade along Gaza’s borders with Egypt and Israel, and a sea blockade maintained by the Israeli navy from three nautical miles offshore. It immediately followed the 2006-2007 economic sanctions against the Palestinian National Authority following the election of Hamas to the Palestinian government.

Prior to 2007 blockade, Israeli military has already imposed blockade of the Gaza Strip and closure of the Gaza International Airport, following the The Al-Aqsa Intifada which broke out in September 2000. The blockade worsened after the creation of a ‘buffer zone’ in September 2001, that would seal all entry and exit points in the Palestinian Territories. After 9 October, 2001, movement of people and goods across the ‘Green Line’ dividing the West Bank from Israel, and between the Gaza Strip and Israel, was halted, and a complete internal closure was effected on November 14, 2001.

More than 1.5 million Gazans have been cut off from the outside world and struggling with desperate poverty. The ongoing siege or blockade of Gaza punishes the entire population, young and old, by restricting the entry of food, medical supplies, educational equipment and building materials, oils, and virtualy any other basic supplies that are essential for a living.


I know someone will said,"naah, for sure, Israel or Egypt will block those supplies for Gaza"Maybe there is high possibilities this supplies will be blocked by Egypt or Israel, but there is also possibility this supplies will be transferred into Palestine. The most important one is, we as a human that always protect other human's rights, have show some efforts to help them.

I have read somewhere a Malay guy said, "why we must bother about Palestine-Israel issues?, if Palestine didn't against Israel, i'm very sure this world is in peace"...jokes!, come on man. okey, why Malay people want a freedom from Britian at 1957?.hmm, if you read history books, for sure, we dont want to be oppressed by those Britian. We want our own rights to manage our country by our own system, same goes with Palestine, they want to live peacefully and want their own rights.

For Muslims, please never insult someone who want to do some deeds because i have heard someone said "Those who just pray for our brothers at Palestine is nothing, they didnt help Palestine,"huh?. Please,who are you to say that, this deed is better than another deed.?

Only Allah knows the best.

قُلْ كُلٌّ يَعْمَلُ عَلَىٰ شَاكِلَتِهِ فَرَبُّكُمْ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ هُوَ أَهْدَىٰ سَبِيلًا
Say: "Everyone acts according to his own disposition: But your Lord knows best who it is that is best guided on the Way."

Ertinya : Katakanlah: ""Tiap-tiap orang berbuat amalan menurut keadaannya masing-masing"". Maka tuhanmu lebih mengetahui siapa yang lebih benar jalannya" ( Al-Isra : 84 )

oh, we can help our brothers and sisters in Palestine using many ways.

1) Lend your hand, i mean physically help. You can go to Palestine to help using your own skills.If you're a doctor, you can give a treatment.

2) Money.If you cant go to Palestine, you can give your money even only RM1.

3)Pray for Palestine will be free.

4)Attend any event or programme that supports Palestine.

5)Through writing whether in blog, fb, sms, email , books, or just a poster.

6)Give a sermon or speech about Palestine issues if you capable to do it.

7) Boycott the products made by the companies that support Israel.

p/s : I realized I'm not a pious person , but i want to do my best as a Muslim. Help Gazans.!,

[Get ready for final exam and camping]

oh dubai....

Dubai is quite popular because it have many high building and among them, it have tallest building in the world,Burj Khalifa.

But seriously, Dubai is planning to build this huge, talking statue for the Zaabeel Park. And I think there's a discotheque in the head.

Called al hakawati (the storyteller), the naked Dr. Manhattan/Jolly Green Giant monolith will ironically contain a children's library in the feet, some elevators, and will—get this—move as it recites stories to passers-by.

Dubai has outdone itself again.*sarcasm

p/s: first, tallest building, now tallest statue (berhala), end of world is coming soon :(

Why do you want to become a doctor?

"Why do you want to be a doctor?"

This is the most frequently asked question when we went to interview to enter Kulliyah/Faculty of Medicine.

"I want to help other"
This is the most common answer given by us. Gold standard answer.
But most of the time, most of us are NOTHING!!

"I want to help the poor, they deserve better treatment."

It is a standard answer from medical students. A good way to help the poor is to remain in the government service as they simply cannot afford to go to the money-sucking private hospitals. Unfortunately, when they are asked about the reason to reject JPA scholarship......

" Ishhh,need to bond to the government for 10 years, so long, dont want la. Wanna be free."
or, when they are asked whether to remain in the government service......

"Government? Cannot stand the workload,so many on-calls some more, I want to sleep,wanna to private after the compulsory service.
or, when ask to go to the ulu-ulu(rural) area to help the poor.............

"Ha?? NO cinema, NO KFC, NO Shopping malls, NO entertainment, can bored to death, u know....KATAKAN TAK NAK!!

Another standard answer given by medical student is:

"My family member had cancer and I couldn't do anything at that time, so, I want to be a doctor so that I can prevent this. "
Does this sound familiar to you?
If that is your answer
yet you are so obsessed with clinical practice
show very little interest towards medical research, you are going to the wrong direction.

When facing some terminal or serious diseases, it depends on the researchers who work behind the scene to develop the new treatments.
They only prolong the patient's life, and the result is still the same death

Another answer:

"It's my ambition since I was a kid."
Come on, how on earth can you decide that when you are still very much dependent on your parents for most of the decision.
Obviously, you get the idea from the sample essay in which you need to memorize when you were in primary school.
"Apakah cita-cita kamu?"
"Cita-cita saya adalah menjadi seorang doktor yang berjaya." Get it?

Another answer....

"Parents force me to study medicine."
Your parents might force you, yet, you still come to the medical school with happy face and very motivated. Yea, when there is no good answer, just blame the parents je, very easy answer.


Okay, why is it so hard to tell the truth?

" I want to be rich!"

" I want the title, DR. , glamour la!"

"Doctor has higher status, people respect me!"

"Doctor BEST, easy to tackle pretty chicks!"

Some doctors told us that becoming a doctor is not the way to be rich.
After office hour, they were spotted sitting comfortably in BMW, Mercedes... (--,)y
Yea, of course not rich, they are comparing themselves to Robert Kuok.
Some of you might say, "I can still help others by working in private hospital."
Yea right, they pay a huge amount for your service, basically, you are just selling your skill to them.
They pay for what they deserve but not at the mercy of your kindness.
furthermore, they can sue you if you don't give a good service. Have you ever heard that a kind Samaritan get sued because he/she is not giving a 'good enough' help?
"I sincerely want to help you, yet you sue me because my help is lousy?
I don't doubt that, indeed, there are some students who really have the heart to help others and also to improve the medical services in our country, good for them and I salute them.
how many of us are actually one of them? Are you?

Well, after almost 4 years in medical school, try to ask yourself the same old question again,

p/s; im still wondering why I want to become a DOC...for me,,THAT'S MY FATE..hoho..amiinn....
