There are several things that can remind me of the good old times. Videos, pictures and musics, smells and tastes or flavours. Out of these things, songs and musics are the most significant ones. It is human mind concept of memorising the past events where the brain will associate one thing to another as much as possible. For instance, when you are at an open house, there happen to be a cultural song, so, whenever you listen to that song again in the future, the brain will bring you the picture of the event to your mind. But this is only the case, of course, if you really like the event, or really hate the event. If you have nothing interesting in one particular event, chances are you won't remember a thing because the mind refuses to.

Seperti juga yang banyak dilaporkan oleh akhbar rakan-rakan di FB, Kelab Seni Orator SDAR tidak berjaya membawa pulang piala paling prestij dalam kejohanan SBP ke SDAR. Pasukan BM SDAR tewas di tangan SSP. Namun, kekecewaan sedikit terubat mengenangkan pasukan Bahasa Inggeris buat kesekian kalinya berjaya memegang piala PPM.
Mengenangkan kekalahan itu jugalah, hati ini bercampur perasaan suka dan duka. Tapi, agak-agaknya perasaan duka itu yang paling tebalnya. Namun begitu, kupasrahkan juga kerana peraturan Allah itu lagi besar dan lebih banyak hikmahnya.
BM SDAR diwakili oleh Luqman Sufyan, Thalhah Azfar dan Syahmi. 3 mereka di tingkatan 5 dan Syahmi di tingkatan 4. Terus terangnya, yang tingkatan 5 itu adalah form 1 aku (junior batch Warisan 048). Bagi aku, 5 tahun bersama mereka merupakan kenangan yang paling indah mengatasi keindahan2 kenangan yang lain. Setiap seorang daripada mereka mempunya kualiti dan karakter yang tersendiri menyebabkan aku terpaut kasih dan terikat sayang dengan mereka. Tidak pernah lagi rasanya seorang form 5 akan ada perasaan ni pada junior mereka. Tapi, semua ini disebabkan aku melihat sendiri perkembangan mereka semenjak mereka tak hebat sehingga menjadi sehebat ini. Mereka membesar di depan mata aku dan itulah pengalaman yang paling sangat terindah buat aku.

Earlier this week, UNESCO has finally recognised Palestine as a country with a unanimous vote from the members. With that regard, Palestine is now a state member of UN organisation. The inquiry has been made several months ago for Palestine to be included as a state member of the UN.
Katanya sukan nadi negara. Majulah sukan unutk negara. Maka, dengan semangat kesukanan jugalah, perlawanan akhir Piala Malaysia 2011 akan menemukan Negeri Sembilan dan Terengganu. Jujurnya, saya bangga juga dengan skuad Hobin Jang Hobin ni. Tak sangka-sangka 2 tahun berturut dah masuk final (setakat yang saya tengok lah).
Hi everyone. I hope there are still people reading my blog. Haha. So, as the title sounds, Citra Malaysia 2011. It was the Malaysia's biggest cultural event ever made in Brisbane, Queensland. This year's would be a landmark event for the many coming years. I was given an opportunity to perform in the event. I was singing 4 songs of the 60's or people in Malaysia called it, pop yeh yeh..! I feel honoured to perform in such a big event. In fact, that would be my first time performing in front of the crowd, besides the one during SDAR Open Day in 2008 (that was silly). Well, I must say that the event was a success. Not to forget my performance was so energetic, I managed to get almost everyone to dance along while I was singing Keindahan Pantai by A. Romzi. For the first time in my life, I felt like accomplished! Haha.. Now i know how Beyonce fells after every performance! Chewah!
There are things that we sometime take for granted. A lot of things around us.. we just never realised that. Once we realised we had taken something for granted, we will regret everything. But the problem with regretting is, we will never make it to the past and perhaps repeat it all over again so the mistake won't happen.
As I grow up, there are a lot of things that have taught me about life. Some of them teach me about responsibility and accountability, self-motivation and etc etc… Even better, the more we make a full use of those lessons, the better person we will be. It is just a matter of time. If we cannot make it right and prefer to be silent and a watcher instead of an actor, then we are at loss.
When we are in a foreign land, far, far away from our homeland, I have learnt that we must not in any way insult the foreign country. One thing for sure, we are already a foreigner and being a foreigner, insulting the country seems not to be a good idea. For instance, we have to admit that different country, different place, different land are all having different culture, tradition, and even food and cuisines. Doesn’t matter what are the dishes that they have every day and night, what are t heir activities in the day up to at night, as long as we are there, we must accept to learn and understand their way of life and respect them for what they do. I mean, as long as those behaviours are morally acceptable, I don’t think there is a reason to not to accept it.
I know that some people might say, we as a Malaysian must be proud of our country, and never to lose our identity as a Malaysian. Yes I get it. But it doesn’t mean you have to be proud all the time that you refused to acknowledge other people’s differences. I mean, as a student, that is the point the Government sending students abroad so that we are not only confined with so-called Malaysian way of life. Some people might have done so much better than us that we have never known about it.
Well, practically speaking, I do admit that the use of water in toilet is not Aussie’s way but Malaysians, well, considering the needs of Muslims for cleanliness. So, not having water pipe in toilets doesn’t give us a reason to condemn their way of life because if the cleanliness is the concern, there is always a way to use water, well at least sufficient enough for the needs of Muslims to clean themselves after toilet time. But do you know, even without the use of water in their toilets, their toilets are still smelt much less stinker that those we have in Malaysia? Even better, their floor is much cleaner and whiter than most of toilets in Malaysia. This made me wonder that even in the absence of water, in which we know it as a cleaning agent in cleanliness, they are still visitable. In fact, I think the use of water in Malaysia’s toilets is the factor why we have such a bad condition even for a public toilet. Or can I say, it is people’s mentality that makes it a difference? If that is so, which people seem to have a higher class of mentality? We should ask ourselves then.
That will be one of the examples that I can draw from my 4 months stay in this land. And the lesson I have learnt from it is the ability to accept people’s social state without being judgemental. We cant straight away jump to the conclusion that they are not civilised, not ethical, and many other things. And speaking of ethics, do you know that they will really stop their car at the zebra cross whenever there are pedestrian crossing over the streets? And even if there is no a zebra cross, they will still stop their vehicles and let the pedestrian go first? How’s that? Can we just compare it with our ethics back then in Malaysia? There is a huge gap I shall say.
Well, I am not to praise Aussie too much and back mouthing my own country. I never intend that. I just want to let you know that the value of respecting people and accepting people as what they are, are very important. Comparing and condemning are two different things though, and yet, we have to be careful with what we are saying because we will never know what are their feelings when they are in Malaysia. Could be even worse than we thought it was. So, learn, and adapt, and at the same time, stay Malaysian.
