sharing is caring #1

This is something that I found in Facebook. Something that we should do and make it as habits no matter what we do or where we are. Something very simple and easy :)

1. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim - bila nak lakukan sesuatu
2. Alhamdulillah - apabila selesai lakukan sesuatu
3. Astaghfirullah - jika lakukan sesuatu yg buruk
4. Insyaallah - jika ingin lakukan sesuatu pada masa yang akan datang
5. Laa hawla walaaquwwata illaah billah - apabila lihat perkara yg buruk
6. Innalillahi wainna ilaihi rojiun – apabila melihat @ hadapi musibah
7. Lailaha illallah - bacalah sebanyak mungkin

Meskipun Ramadhan semakin hampir untuk meninggalkan kita, but that doesnt mean we have to stop doing all the good deeds we have been doing during this holy month. Kita manusia biasa yang penuh khilaf. So, let us together.. spreading the love and do good deeds. By the way, Facebook is not so bad either.. If we use it wisely.. It can be a good medium for good deeds too :)

early ramadhan gift

The biggest congregation for all Dungun teachers was held last week. If Im not mistaken if all of us showed up that day, there would be approximately 2500 teachers altogether. The whole lot of us..

The purpose was to meet the MB of Terengganu who has this ambitious desire to meet all teachers of Terengganu face to face, one by one. Impossible as it may sound, it was made possible as he came to district by district. Dungun was the last and with no other choice but held during Ramadhan. Apparently, his visits wasnt with empty hand but with a souvenir for every teacher. An 8GB pendrive for each teacher.

I, when heard about this for the first time was a bit reluctant only to meet and receive an 8 GB pendrive. Its not like it's first appearance. A 128MB pendrive only, was as expensive as $130-$150. Today, it is one of the most common IT tools that can be found almost anywhere with cheaper price and bigger memory size. Anyway, as an obedient government staff, I changed my mind and thought why not I gave it a shot. I might not be able to experience a big gathering like this anymore next time (sebenarnya kalau tak datang, kena buat surat tunjuk sebab).

It wasnt a disappointment at all. Each of us receive this petite pendrive.. beautifully crafted with swarovski crystals.. the ladies were the happiest I tell u.. who doesnt like the blink blink stuff? if possible from tudung till shoes.. most of us, teachers want to decorate them with beads and crystals.. blink blink kiasu I may say :)

The men's was slightly different from the ladies. Ours was a pendrive necklace but their's was a keychain and a bit bigger in size.

Im loving mine so much but Im not any meticulous type of person that I dread I might lost it someday so I exchanged it with my male pal for the keychain one as he wanted to give the necklace to his wife.

I think the MB of Terengganu and his clan did a good job. It was very thoughtful of him to get each of us such a pretty pendrive which is rare and hard to get anywhere. If its any kingston pendrive might as well we get it ourselves and not to hassle and waste our time, energy especially in finding the parking for the gathering that day. I tell you.. it was a mess.. people parked their car almost everywhere. It was the worst scenario ever. Luckily I decided to carpool with some friends but we waited for almost 20 minutes for someone who parked in front of us to move his car. Oh well.. once in a while..

Ramadhan Already!!

I cant believe myself that I was able to abandon my blog for more than 2 weeks but I wasnt purposely want to do this. Have been wanting to update day by day but failed to do so. Like last week, I was involved with a 3 days course + tasks that due on end of the week. All this job craps...

Forget to mention that last week, my PIL were coming down town to spend time with MM and I. It was very fortunate that it is now the fruit season, here in Terengganu. We had fruit feast almost everyday!

Our journey to and fro from dungun-klang every weekend finally took its toll on us. Both MM and I had this coughing and body aching for almost 2 weeks but we are ok now. Alhamdulillah..

Almost forgotten.. it was our 5th anniversary last month. Alhamdulillah.. It was such a bliss though we have yet be blessed with any kid but we are happy. To commemorate the day, we exchanged gifts. MM gave me a diamond ring and I gave him a nokia hp to match with mine. Rezeki tuhan bagi.. tak putus² :)

Finally came Ramadhan. Syukur. That we still be given the chance to feel the blessing and we decided to spend the weekend here instead of going back to Klang. It has been a while that we last felt the fresh air of our home during weekend. Though the first 2 days was quite a melt down because it was pretty difficult for me to wake up early for sahur and prepared better meal for my MM but he didnt complaint at all. Anyway, I think it will get better in time. Like today I managed to wake at 5am and prepared some instant parathas with reheated fish curry (tak baik membazir). It was quite good though MM said the curry was a bit salty :( Just got to be better.. work harder of course..

On the night before first puasa, we went to the mall to get some stuffs for the kitchen and among the things that we bought are those spices above. Lots of spices and that means I am so excited! I canceled all my tuition class just to do the cookings for this fasting month. I have no choice but cook since PARAM is not so close to where I live and being a school teacher I was given a lifetime privilege to be home early so I have a lot of time to prepare for breakfast. Even though I was so excited to cook, I do keep some instant food for emergency cases :)

on another note.. ada orang tanya since we went grocery shopping on the nite of the first ramadhan, so tak terawikh la kan? wrong! tak boleh ke kitorang laki bini terawikh berjemaah kat rumah? haaaa.. sendiri mau ingat ye..
