Drive Carefully, Unless You Would Jeopardize Others.

I was taken aback. To death.

Why? Because 2 accidents happened-- two days in a row, in front of my eyes; with the other one I experienced it with some other friends, precisely at about 11.30 noon just now.

Plus, I never experienced a car accident until today.

Accident #1:

I was talking about taking my driving license with my sister when suddenly a car hit the road divider and nearly fell into the drain. It was the first accident which I mentioned earlier.

Accident #2:

My friends and I were in the 4-wheels car. My friend was driving in her lane when we reached a t-junction where without a proper signal, another car from the lane beside suddenly turn right into her lane; heading into the junction. What else could be expected? Collision of course. BAM! Our car hit his; left the door quite a huge damage and several scuff marks. (The rest? I can say that it's in a good progress).

Thankfully, both are minors, though.

Moral of the story: If you happen to be the witness of any accident, regardless of how careless or how 'funny' the accident could be, please don't forget that; Allah's watching. (This is for me, especially)

Innalillahi wa innailaihirajiuun. (We came from Him, and we shall return to Him)

P/s-increasing my phobia, after all...nauzubillah.

Rule # 1, We Are Family

Salam alayk..

Just now I got the chance to watch "The Ron Clark Story". It is really a great story. I can't forget the scene where Tayshawn is been hit and punched at face by his foster father. Alas..I enjoy watching it since I get so many ideas on how teaching is actually about--reality can't all be written,anyways.

So, here's go the details...;)

The Ron Clark Story (also known as The Triumph in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, the UKand the Philippines) is a 2006 television film that premiered on TNT on Sunday, August 13, 2006. Based on the real educator Ron Clark, it centers on the title character, a teacher from a small town, who moves to New York City and tries to make a difference in the lives of his students, despite nobody, including the students themselves, believing in them. The film was sponsored byJohnson & Johnson.<---unfortunately, i can say..:(

The Ron Clark Story follows the inspiring tale of an energetic, creative and idealistic young teacher who leaves his small North Carolina hometown to teach in a New York City public school. Through his passionate use of special rules for his classroom, highly innovative teaching techniques and an undying devotion to his students and helping them cope with their problems, Clark is able to make a remarkable difference in the lives of his students. For one young girl trying to attend school while helping to raise her siblings, he offers a chance for her to overcome her situation and become one of the class' top students.For a young man with a penchant for graffiti, he offers an ideal outlet for artistic expression.

Even when he is almost overcome by pneumonia, Clark continues to work with his students, hoping that he can raise their test scores to an acceptable level, or possibly even higher. However, when Mr Clark returns, he finds out his class did not deliver the goods but he remains optimistic about their chances. The kids sit in the state exams and a few days later, Mr Clark takes the kids to see the Phantom of Opera. In the end, Principal Turner reveals that Mr Clark's class got the highest average in the state and Mr Clark was regarded by his students as their best teacher in the world.

Additional notes:

Ron has written two books. The first, called The Essential 55: An Award-Winning Educator's Rules for Discovering the Successful Student in Every Child (2003), is being published in 25 countries. In 2004 he followed with The Excellent 11: Qualities Teachers and Parents Use to Motivate, Inspire, and Educate Children.

In December 2008, Oprah Winfrey donated $365K to Ron Clark, for the Ron Clark Academy [you see, he has just found a learning academy when in Malaysia we have Singing Academy..<---you know it better than me.
] and for his profound dedication in teaching.

I hope I can be a really patient teacher like him. I think New Yorkian youngsters are very unimagined teenagers. I wonder how are the youngsters can act in future if at the moment, they can already treat their teacher like that!

But one thing I am sure is, if I practise it here in our country, the people would just straight away mad at me--to go into your student's house without their parents' permission at the first place! LOL..

Alright, I think that's all for now.

I'm Too Busy...

Everyday as I wake up at dawn,
My mind starts working the moment I yawn

There are many things to do, oh dear!
That's why I hastily perform my Subuh prayer

I didn't have the time to sit longer to praise the Lord,
For me rushing out after prayer is nothing odd...

Since school, I had been busy every minute,
Completing my tutorials and exercises to submit

No time did I had Allah to pray.
For Allah, I really had no time to spare...

When I grew up and started my career,
Working all day to secure my future

When I reached home, I preferred to have fun,
I chatted on the phone but didn't read the Quran

I spent too much time surfing the internet
Sad to say, my faith was falling flat...

The only time I have left is weekends
During which I prefer window shopping with friends

I couldn't spare time to go to the mosque
I'm too busy, that's the BIG excuse...

I did my five prayers but did so quickly,
After prayer, I didn't sit longer to reflect quietly

I didn't have time to help the needy ones,
I was loaded with work as my precious time runs...

No time at all to visit a sick Muslim friend,
To orphans and elderly, I hardly lent a hand

I'm too busy to do community service,
When there were gatherings, I helped the least...

My life was already full of stress,
So I didn't counsel a Muslim in distress

I didn't spend much time with my family,
Because I thought, doing so is so extraordinary...

No time to share with non-Muslim about Islam,
Even though I know, inviting causes no harm

No time to do Sunnah prayers at all,
All these contribute to my imaan's fall...

I'm busy here and busy there,
I've no time at all, that's all I care

I went for religious lessons, just once in a while,
Because I'm too busy making a pile...

I worked all day and slept all night,
Too tired for Tahajjud and it seemed not right

For me, earning a living was already tough,
so I only did basic deeds but that's not enough...

No time at all, to admire God's creation
No time to praise Allah and seek His Compassion

Although I know how short is my life
For Islam, I really didn't strive...

Finally the day comes, when the Lord calls for me,
and I stood before Him with my life's HISTORY

I feel so guilty because I should have prayed more
Isn't that what a Muslim lives for?

To thank Allah and do more good deeds
and the Quran is for us all to read...

Now at the Judgment Day, I'm starting to fret
I've wasted my life but it's too late to regret

My entry to Heaven depends on my good behavior
but I haven't done enough nor did proper prayer

My 'Good Deed Book' is given from my right,
An angel opens my 'book' and read out my plight.

Then the voice chided me...

"O You Muslim servant, you are the one,
Who is given enough time, yet not much is done"

"Do you know that your faith is loose?
saying "no time" is only an excuse"

"Your "Good Deed Book" should be filled up more,
with all the good work you stood up for"

Hence, I only recorded those little good deeds

As I say this, I know your eyes will mist
I was about to write some more, you see

But I did not have, the TIME to list....


Moral of the story: be a morning person, not a mourning person

Tidak Mahu Sambut...Hari Tua

takleh lupa gambo ni..tangkap guna camera hp yg dah dalam kenangan..masa ni adik umur 2 tahun setengah..
gambo terbaru..4-year-old Mujahid

Ada jemputan dari saudaraku untuk sesuatu yang sangat penting..9/10/09

Kebetulan, kawan ajak pergi open house raya dan pada masa yang sama, kawan suruh pergi sebab nak buat sambutan majlis hari lahir sekali.. Dan aku , on the contrary, insyaAllah memilih untuk menghadiri jemputan saudaraku..[erk?] Ya Allah, dua-dua sama penting. Kawan dan saudara..

Esoknya [10/09] angah minta aku ke UIA. Bawakan jubah yang dijahit ummi sewaktu cuti yang lepas; dan daftar lesen, katanya. Ada pesta konvo juga di sana.

Ya Allah, aku sudah jadi seperti student UIA celup lagaknya. Masuk kali ini [insyaAllah], sudah kali keberapa aku 'mengembara' ke UIA.[Angah ingat tak..? rasanya lebih dari 6 kali..squatting kat marhalah angah lagi..(exaggerating~)]Dan 10/9 aku tetap perlu mengajar di Seksyen 19. Mungkin dalam pukul 5 baru boleh bertolak ke UIA. Sebelum tu kena naik bas dari Seksyen 18, ke Seksyen 2. Kemudian dari Seksyen 2 ke KL Sentral. Oh, ada alternatif lain! Mungkin patut naik KTM sahaja dari Seksyen 19, ke KL Sentral. Kemudian naik LRT ke Gombak.

Semalam abuya call, dan memberitahu; adik bongsuku demam. Demam rindu barangkali. Pada kakaknya ini.[haha]. Rumah sunyi sepi sekarang. Semua pulang ke tempat belajar masing-masing. Tentulah sunyi adik. Teringat sewaktu aku sampai di rumah pada 19/09 pagi. Lebih kurang pukul 5 pagi. Adik masih tidur pada waktu itu. Kemudian aku lihat kakakku yang lebih dulu bercuti di rumah sudah bangun untuk sahur. Kami berbual-bual di dapur. Adik yang sedang tidur, terjaga [mendengar suara aku barangkali], terus memanggil namaku. Meluru dia ke dapur, mencari aku. Sayu nya hati aku. Adik yang makin membesar. Pampers , dan botol susu sudah tiada lagi di tangannya. Sekarang adik dah pandai, tanya abang dan kakaknya; ALLAH DI MANA? KENAPA TAK NAMPAK ALLAH?

Memikirkannya, aku rasa ini salah satu bukti fitrah manusia yang sememangnya merasakan pergantungannya dengan Pencipta. Serta bukti manusia sememangnya telah mengikat janji dengan Sang Pencipta sejak di alam rahim lagi. Sebab itu, manusia yang kusut jiwanya, yang masih tercari-cari, yang jiwanya memberontak akan kembali damai dengan mengingati Allah, dengan mengingati bahawa semua masalah kembali kepada Allah. Allah akan membantu hamba-hamba-Nya.

This soul is a servant,
Upon the promise, "Alastu bi Rabbikum?" "Qaalu, Bala Syahidna."

This soul is created from a drop of disdainful water,
Chosen from the millions

This soul then born into the world,
Without even know how to read and write

This soul then becomes a daughter
For her beloved parents

This soul has the responsibility
As a sister, among her siblings

This soul seeks for knowledge
For the sake of her religion and nation

This soul is a companion,
Reflection to her friends around

This soul,
One day,
Shall return to Him,
and sees her Creator...

Semakin menginjak usia, semakin rasa diri ini hampir untuk menemui Pencipta-Nya. Dah berapa banyak bekalan nak bawa ni? Rasa-rasa cukup ke tidak? Semoga sempat mempersiapkan diri sebelum menemui-Nya..Amiin.

!!Ada dua dokumen on the way untuk disiapkan. Satu untuk kak diyana dan satu untuk kak zulaikha. Dan ada baanyak lagi tugasan menantiku di hadapan;

*Lesson Plan
*Test Construction
*Micro Teaching
*Creative Project
*PTE Test
*PTE Group Assignment
*Arabic Video Project
*Career Counseling [Presentation]

Doakan kejayaanku..sahabat-sahabat, dan sesiapa sahaja yang melawat blog ini.
Terima kasih!

p/s: Mencari..dan terus mencari..cinta Ilahi..sehingga kutemui..[pinjam tagline blog ummuhusna..]

Dulu dan Kini...

...banyak bezanya, bukan?
