Dunno why but I feel like writing about ambition today. Maybe because I’m feeling quite ambitious ? Perhaps ;P

Anyhow, I think all of you would still remember when your teacher asked you what do you want to be when you grow up? What is your ambition? And at that time maybe you would say doctor, teacher, police, accountant..and the list goes on. My ambition at that time was to be a doctor (now I’m sure that I know and you know that I didn’t became a doctor huhuhu). So just how many of you became what you wished and hoped you wanted to be? I really want to know.

Well want I want to point out here is that was then this is now, that was a dream..and this is reality, 2 different things. Yes of course you can make your dreams come true, but you yourself will have to determine it. Ambition is important but what is more important is your will.Your hard work. Your strive. That is more important.

I am not saying that having an ambition is not relevant because that is your goal. But if you just have a goal, a vision but you don’t do anything, so what will happen?

I remembered one day when I asked my father what was his ambition. He said that when he was little he only wanted to become a clerk. But it turned out that he became a lecturer because yup he did studied hard. So I can say that I am what I am today because of what I have done. I can conclude it as not so good but not that bad either. But there are still room for improvement rite? ;p

Maybe because we are adults now, so we can think realistically on what we can achieve. Like for now it is not about being a doctor..being a ceo or an engineer anymore. It is more on how to live our life. We became to realise that this life is not just about achieving your so called ambition that you dreamt of when you were in school. That is just a small portion of it…so strive to success!!

If we don’t want to be insulted, don’t insult ourselves

Hmm..just want to comment on the film. I have seen this film and I agree it was very wrong of them to make this film and send a wrong message about Islam through this film. Like he used a certain ayat and show the relevance of that ayat with the World Trade Centre incident and so on but what is the ayat before that one and what is the ayat after that?

Thanks to this film, maybe before this we are not so concern about what the westerners think and do to Islam, but by making this film, they are making a point to show that they really hate Islam and will do anything .Me as a muslimah, I want to study the Quran so that I understand it even more.

Today, I read about a comment on this film by the Perlis mufti, I think he had made some good points that we can think together.


He said that we, as Muslim don’t show to them the true meaning of Islam. Islam is perceived as terrorism, poor, violent and so on. This is because this is what they see through the media, this is what they portray to the world so how can we expect them to see the beauty of Islam? As we can see in Islamic countries, there are wars, Islamic countries are poor, we are far behind in economics, education, science and technology. The world is blinded by all this

It is sad but true. It is time for us to stop blaming others and improve ourselves first. Prove to them what we really are.

Like the mufti said, return to the Quran and Sunnah, because we are supposed to be respected and set a good example, not to be disrespected.
If we don’t want to be insulted, don’t insult ourselves.

Ch Ch Ch Changes

Wow its been a loooong time since I last wrote in my blog haha. Been very busy lately. Now that I have been transferred from the Bukit Jalil office to Wisma at KL, since then my life have changed somehow.

Waking up early in the morning…traffic jam…tolls…icy cold office (feels just like being in a refrigerator, trust me)..new makan spot..new pc (love my new pc though huhu)..new friends..and the list goes on… Lots of adjustment to be made since how I work, even how I lived my life had been some kind of habit and to change it sure takes time and effort.

So today I just feel like talking about changes. Because for me myself, I am in the changing process, in this case, the change of work place.

Lets see..maybe we would first ask the question why change? Maybe like me, I am instructed to change (out of my will). Maybe the changes happen because the current situation or from what we can see and perceive is not too our preference. We dislike something. So we change, like what happened in the recent election…major changes in certain states.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad also changed for the better through hijrah from Mekah to Yathrib (Madinah) and hijrah was an important turning point in Islam, Hijrah was the beginning of the spread of Islam.

Maybe we can change unintentionally, without even us ourself realizing that we are changing. Like when I went to my friend’s wedding and my friends say that I look different. I look at the mirror and I still see the old me, nothing different. So, I’m thinking maybe it’s just their opinion or maybe because we haven’t met for quite a while. But bottom line, I don’t feel different and I’m still the same.

It is them that I think are changing haha. With their families – wives, husbands, babies :D

But I think if you realize that you need to change and the change is good for you. Go on. Because God will not change your fate if you yourself won’t change. Change for good.
