My Princess

One more interesting Korean drama to watch. It is quite typical Korean drama, but I like the actors and actresses in that drama. The story revolves around four different characters : Lee Sul (Kim Tae Hee), Park Hae Young (Song Seung Heon), Oh Yoon Joo (Park Ye Jin) and Prof. Nam (Ryu Su Yeong).

Although the plot is simple, but there are some hilarious moments in it. The story is about a lost imperial granddaughter. She has been found living among the citizens. There is a complot to dethrone her. But, luckily she managed to overcome all the obstacles with the help of Park Hae Young.

The ending is happy like I expected it to be...I do love happy ending.

Leaving them behind...

Bye 2011...Welcome 2012...

What have you been doing through this whole year? You might have a happy ending or maybe a sad ending before you start your whole new year. Believe it or not... you are actually leaving them behind. Although you have encountered so many incidents in your life, leaving them behind is quite a wonderful thing to do.


Why do I say so? Well... some of us might have a terrific year and some of us might have tasted the pain in their life, but overall, life is unexpected. What do you expect it to be? It is unpredictable; for life itself is a journey without knowing which path or route to take in order to survive.

Cekodok Tapai...

Resepi terbaru mak...


2 cawan tepung gandum
1 biji telur
Air secukupnya
1/2 cawan tapai pulut - hancurkan dulu.
Sedikit garam.
Gula secukupnya.

Cara membuatnya:

Selamat mencuba...

Puasa...

Alhamdulillah....

Rasa lega sangat bila sudah cukup menggantikan puasa yang ditinggalkan kerana ketika itu saya masih berpantang. Hanya sempat mengerjakan 9 hari sahaja pada Bulan Ramadhan yang lepas.

Memang sudah menjadi kebiasaan saya dan suami untuk berpuasa sebaik sahaja masuk hari ke-2 di Bulan Syawal (Jika tiada apa-apa yang menghalang).Terima kasih kepada suami saya yang menggalakkan saya berpuasa 6 hari pada Bulan Syawal...maklumlah, sebelum berkahwin, liat sikit nak puasa enam.

Bukan mudah...

Bukan mudah menjadi anak...

1.  Kena perlu sentiasa hormatkan kedua ibu bapa dan kaum keluarga.
2.  Kena sentiasa peka akan keperluan keluarga.
3.  Kena selalu menjaga nama baik keluarga.
4.  Kena sentiasa mendapat izin daripada ibu dan bapa dalam
     segala hal...


Tapi...yang selalu berlaku...

1.  "Ada aku kisah? Hal aku...aku lah yang jaga. Ala...kubur lain-
     lain kan. Masing-masing jaga hal sendiri la.."
2.  "Nak berseronok pun tak bagi! Aku nak jugak merasa
      kebebasan!"

My heartache...does hurt...

Listening to every word uttered by her make me realized that there is a person who doesn't have any feelings towards other people's misfortune. Without waiting any longer, I poured my feelings out towards her - no more asking permission to speak or to judge.


My heart feels like it was being pulled hard enough from its place. It's going to be torn apart - will somehow lose the grip. It was hard for me to endure the pain caused by that person all this while, but she doesn't seem to notice that in the first place.

It is not how you learn something, but how you live your life according to what you have learned. This is  an important element in life for you are not living alone - you are living in a society; a big one. If you are going to act like you know nothing, simply relying on others' hard work on something, you will be considered as a loser. Although you are from a higher educational level than me, your acts are just like small children to me.

My heart does ache sometimes. It hurts a lot. The pain is sharper than you thought it would be. You wouldn't even try to notice it for you are ignorant for that kind of thing. It is not important to you as you are the center of everything in your life. Me, on the other hand, trying hard to smile innocently without having the courage to say that "You are not really good as you think you are!!!"


Believe me, I'm not weak, but I'm afraid if I said something bad, your heart cannot accept the pain I'll cause later. I'm just being a good person here for I know what goes around comes around...

Kenapalah....

Kenapalah...
Ada orang yang suka cakap ikut suka
Suka sangat main hentam saja.

Kenapalah...
Kalau bercakap tu tak toleh kiri kanan
Main ikut sedap bahasa dan gaya badan.

Kenapalah...
Kalau berjanji sukar untuk ditepati
Padahal sering memuji diri sendiri.

Kenapalah...
Katanya belajar terlalu tinggi
Tapi perlukah meninggikan diri?

Kenapalah...
Gemar mencari kesalahan orang
Sedangkan diri sendiri pun banyak kekurangan.

Kenapalah...
Berlagak pandai dan cekap
Sedangkan hanya reti bercakap.

Kenapalah...
Perlu menegak benang yang basah
Kalau nak menghulur bantuan pun susah.

Kenapalah...
Katanya berilmu tinggi
Tapi lagak dan gaya macam syok sendiri.

Kadang-kala hidup ini di atas,
Kadang-kala ia di bawah,
Kalau lah kita sentiasa menindas,
Kelak hidup akan sentiasa susah.

Biarlah senyuman sentiasa di bibir,
Walau hati ini hampir menangis,
Kerana bahagia itu terlalu hampir,
Dan kerana ia tidak layak ditangis.

Jengka oh Jengka....Ep 3

Akhirnya.....selesai juga urusan pembelian rumah di Jengka. Walaupun harganya...emmm....boleh tahan, dek kesusahan hidup tanpa tempat berteduh, membuatkan saya terpaksa membeli rumah di sini. Ada juga yang bertanya..."Berapa lama nak kerja di Jengka ni?" Senang saja saya menjawab..."Sampai pencen, boleh tak?"

Bukan apa, rumah tu kan aset semasa hidup. Anak-anak kan ada, kalau saya dah 'pergi' meninggalkan mereka pun, aset tu hak mereka bertiga. Sewakan saja rumah tu...tuai saja hasilnya kelak.

Rasa sangat gembira apabila pinjaman diluluskan kerajaan.....

Maka, tidak sabarlah untuk memikirkan deko yang sesuai untuk rumah yang baru nanti....

Kepada yang mendoakan saya, terima kasih banyak-banyak...rupa-rupanya perjalanan hidup saya ini dipermudahkan Allah...

Simply ordinary....

It was a quite hectic week...but still, I have to keep track with this week's lesson plan. After having a long tiring meeting last Tuesday, one of my colleagues suddenly said something to me. I was so angry at that moment. It seemed that some of my students complaint about me nagging in the class. I don't really know what kind of nagging it would be, but the way I heard it, I cannot accept that kind of statement.

I'm pretty sure that I have done my 'research' before teaching them, because before starting to teach any group of students, most teachers would do some kind of 'test' to know the students' background knowledge. The same goes to me. It is the same process every single year. This is to help me to provide activities, exercises and tests according to their level of proficiency.

But when I heard that kind of statement, I could not accept the 'nag' word. It is not because it is a big deal or what, but the fact those students complaint to other students (which happens to be in my colleague's class) kills me silently. In English Department, we are just like family - we know everything that happens around us. It hurts me to hear such comments for I have mentioned earlier that they can ask me to teach them in a way that they will feel comfortable in learning English Language.

Human being is just like that, full with emotions and moods. I don't really blame them, but instead of telling the whole world that I'm not good at teaching 'you', why don't you go and find someone else to learn the language. It is not really hard for me to be a mean lecturer here. I just can switch myself to a very intolerant lecturer - then you will suffer the worst. Me, on the other hand would receive my salary just like anyone else in this field without having the guilt of doing so...

Ignorance is not really a bliss...

Sometimes being ignorant won't help you in your life. Although "ignorance is a bliss", it is not necessarily for you to be ignorant all the time. There are situations which require you to pay attention and take action after that. If you are being ignorant all the time, you can be an outcast in the society even in your own family.

Examples for you not to be an ignorant person:

1.  During a meeting with your boss and co-workers.

2.  During a conversation among friends - even though you are not really
    comfortable to be a part of the conversation.

3.  When people smile at you whether you know them or not, smile back at
      them. It costs you nothing!

4.  When people say 'Hi' to you, reply it with a good manner although your
      mood at that time is not really good.

5.  When people ask you questions (related to you or not), please answer the questions politely. Don't
      simply walk away from them.

6.  When your partner / spouse / children need something from you (but you are too tired to give any 
      feedback or do anything), why don't you say something that can make them understand that you are not
     available at that moment. Don't simply throw a tantrum; act like a good adult.

7.  Even if you hate the person who is asking you a question, you have to answer it. Show to that person that
     you are not really that shallow minded kind of person.

8.  Know everything that happens around you, your colleagues, and your family - in the office, at home, at
     school and so on (gossip is not really included).

At least, show to the people around you that you are being a part of the society - whether at home or at work. I know that sometimes we need our own space, but still, there so many ways to do in order not to harm other people's feeling.

Awkwardness is not helping...

Have you ever been into an awkward situation before? I'm pretty sure that most of us have been in so many awkward situations in our life. What kind of situation it could be? Well, it depends on you actually; whether you are the one who make things awkward to yourself or rather someone else is doing that to you. 



Being awkward is not really helping me in my life. There are times which I have to pretend that I'm not feeling awkward at all although my heart keeps telling me to at least say it out loud. I'm so afraid to be outspoken - afraid of hurting other people's feeling!

So...these are few methods I've been teaching myself in order to at least run away from any kind of awkward situations faced in my daily life. Hope they can save you too...:

1.    Smile to the person involved...don't say anything. Then just walk away from that person.

2.    If you need to talk to that person, talk lightly - make a quick conversation before leaving that person.

3.    Pretend that you are doing something with your phone - SMS, or make a short call; tell the person that
       you are making an important call.

4.    If you are living in the same house, it would help you if you just stay in your own room...doing something
       that can help to ease your feeling a bit.

5.   If you are in love with that person, it might help the both of you if you don't talk about that awkward
      situation; it will lead to a quarrel later. Just let it be...

6.    Move away from that person - if that person is giving you a headache!

Well, sometimes life is not easy for us...there are so many selfish people that can make our life miserable. Being an educated person taught me how to control my temper, although it is really hard. I know somehow we cannot simply control our emotion or action when facing any awkward moments especially when other people are messing up with our life!!!

Si Penyewa Rumah...

Rasa macam nak naik angin saja bila melihat keadaan rumah kami di Rawang yang ditinggalkan sang penyewa rumah yang gagal melunaskan bayaran sewa selama 2 bulan. Sudahlah beberapa barang kami diangkut pergi, bayaran api dan air pun diminta tangguh bayarannya.



Suami saya hampir mengeluarkan bahasa yang tidak sepatutnya dia keluarkan. Terpancar kemarahan di wajahnya ketika dia sama-sama mengemaskan rumah yang ditinggalkan sang penyewa yang langsung tidak bertanggungjawab.

Mujurlah kesabaran kami berada dalam tahap yang maksima...:)

Saya ingin berkongsi pengalaman walaupun baru menjadi tuan rumah:

1.     Sediakan satu perjanjian sewaan rumah...Ditandatangani oleh tuan rumah, penyewa dan saksi. (Mujur
        kami menyediakannya sebelum menyewakan rumah kepada sang penyewa rumah).

2.     Kalau boleh, lantik seorang agen yang sangat anda percayai...memudahkan anda menerima sewa bersih
        tanpa perlu bergegas ke rumah sewa - maklumlah, penyewa ni macam-macam ragamnya.

3.    Jangan benarkan memaku di dinding sewenang-wenangnya. Habis rumah berlubang sana-sini.

4.    Tetapkan syarat bayaran pada tarikh yang dipersetujui bersama. (Kalau ada penangguhan bayaran,
       hanya setakat 2 kali sahaja...selepas itu, dengan hormatnya silalah keluar dari rumah ya...)

5.    Jika ada sebarang kerosakan di rumah, tuan rumah perlu membaikinya sendiri - jangan sekali-kali
       menyuruh penyewa membaikinya dan menolak dari wang sewa. Tindakan yang kurang bijak...(Mujur
       kami tidak membenarkan sang penyewa membaiki apa-apa pun di rumah kami...)

6.   Jangan membenarkan penyewa menyewa tanpa membayar deposit rumah, api dan air.

7.   Jika memberi notis keluar rumah, beri tempoh dalam masa sebulan sebelum penyewa keluar rumah.
      Pastikan penyewa tidak membuat 'sesuatu' yang buruk ke atas rumah anda. Buatlah 'kunjungan' mengejut.

Pengalaman merupakan sesuatu yang berharga. Jika anda menyewa rumah orang lain, ingatlah bahawa itu bukan rumah anda...jagalah dengan sebaiknya. Jika anda merupakan tuan rumah, bertindaklah dengan adil dan janganlah terlalu memberi muka kepada penyewa. Semua orang ada masalah tersendiri, tapi jangan sengaja membuatkan orang lain menyimpan amarah mereka terhadap anda...!!!

And the differences are...


Being a lecturer here Kolej Matrikulasi is quite different from being a teacher in school. Although my salary is still the same like when I was in school, but I like teaching here...There are advantages and disadvantages for being a lecturer or a teacher, but still, I love teaching so much.

Some of my friends asked me... How do you feel to teach pre-university level students? How do you feel to be away from your family? Will you bring your children along? And the best question was...What is your qualification to be a lecturer? 


To be honest, I cried every single day in the first month working here - being separated from my children make me sad. But...time heals everything. I just can't wait for January to start. They are going to stay with me soon!!!

Back to my topic - The differences are:

1.   Each tutorial is for one hour. I have 15 hours per week; 5 classes to teach.

2.   LCD projector is provided in each room - really convenient.

3.   More time to prepare for lessons beforehand - few gaps between classes.

4.   Maximum number of students : 21 - 22

5.   I have my own place for tutorial (a class)...I just have to wait for my students to arrive...:)

6.   When teaching an 18-year-old student, I just have to know how to communicate well with them. (If they 
      did everything as they're told, good grades for them... but if not, they know what's going to happen 
      to their grades later)


7.   The best part...I have the chances to apply my knowledge that I have learned in university -
      communication, listening, speaking, writing and reading skills.

8.   Here...I have my own cubicle...just nice for working with privacy.

9.   Last but not least...the environment is soooo good here. No more traffic jams, no hustle and bustle every
      morning, no more rushing for my Zuhur and Asar prayer, and my class is only near to the administration
      building. Walking to the class is not tiring anymore.

Despite my working hour is from 8 am to 4.15 pm and other difficulties (should not be mentioned here)...I love my job so much!!!!

Saturday, November 26, 2011

Yeay...

Hmmm....minggu ke -2 yang menyeronokkan....

1. Akhirnya dapat juga guna LCD dalam kelas...walaupun pun portable. Terima kasih kepada Technician yang bertugas.

2. Selesai akhirnya penerangan Research Writing - walaupun terpaksa memberi penerangan 4 jam berterusan kepada 4 kelas berlainan...fuhhhh....sakit tekak.

3. Kesemua pelajar saya telah berjaya keluar dari kotak mereka....Out of the box....semua idea mereka untuk Research Writing amat memberangsangkan dan membanggakan saya...kelas lain pun belum lagi bagi tajuk mereka  kepada pensyarah mereka...jadi, 5 kelas saya ni amat membanggakan saya....:)

4. Kepada...Shazwan, Faisal, Faizzati, Ain dan Wan...terima kasih...balik dengan saya Jumaat lepas. Rasa sangat senang sebab ada juga teman Ardini yang memang akan kebosanan kalau tak ada orang layan dia...terima kasih sekali lagi....:) (terutama sekali kotak kecik McD tu....)

5. Team Building tidak dapat dijalankan dalam waktu terdekat atas sebab-sebab tertentu...Ardini; Mommy rasa lega sangat-sangat, tak sanggup nak tinggalkan Ardini walaupun sehari...:)


Harap sangat-sangat semua pelajar saya dapat menyediakan Research Writing yang terbaik.....:) dan saya akan rasa sangat sangat sangat gembira dan lega.....:)

Protect The Boss

One more Korean drama to be enjoyed. Full with many hilarious scenes...I repeat...HILARIOUS moments to be watched in the drama.

No Eun Seol (Choi Kang Hee) is the sassy, out spoken secretary chosen for Cha Ji Heon (Ji Sung) who suffers agoraphobia (fear of open spaces, being in a crowded place). Cha Ji Heon is the youngest son of a DN company's CEO. Meanwhile, his cousin Cha Moo Won (Hero Jaejoong) who is also working there as one of the Board Directors has fallen in love with No Eun Seol - not to mention that Cha Ji Heon is also loving her like crazy.

She has her own enemy - Seo Na Yoon (Wang Ji Hye) who is the daughter of a stockholder in DN company. Na Yoon is chasing Ji Heon to be her husband after dumping Moo Won who has loved her since they were young.

While working for her boss, Eun Seol has to help the CEO to cure his son's panic disorder and along that way, there are too many funny moments among those characters involved. I really like this drama for
I believe that no such drama like this one has been produced before. No more unrealistic scenes - there are too many if to be discussed, I'm sure a Korean drama fan should know....

And the ending is so cute......so...have fun watching it....

Macam-macam hal...

Hari pertama semester ke-2...

Merata-rata cari kasut...rupa-rupanya kasut dah hilang. Nasib baik ada kasut lama dalam kereta. Rasa sedih pun ada...kasut tu tak lah lawa mana pun, tapi masih selesa dipakai. Jadi, terpaksalah pakai kasut lama yang dah longgar dan berhabuk....:(

Masuk ofis macam biasa. Sarapan pagi ala kadar...perut masih sakit lagi...kesan asyik membuang dari hari Jumaat lagi. Batuk pun masih ada...rasa sangat tak selesa apabila perut masih berbunyi-bunyi. :(

Jumpa dengan Ketua Unit...sembang sekejap pasal cuti yang tak berapa seronok...dia pun tak berapa sihat... samalah keadaan kami berdua. Cuti semester habis macam itu sahaja...nak gelak pun ada, nak nangis pun ada.

Tiba-tiba...

Ada berita tergempar...belum tentu sah lagi, tapi rasa macam dah sah kot. Kena pergi Team Building kat Rompin hujung minggu depan. :(

Macam mana ni? Anak nyusu badan waktu malam. Kalau bawak pengasuh boleh tak? Takkan nak hantar anak rumah mak? Berperang la dengan anak saudara yang sangat aktif. Macam mana ni? Kalau tinggal anak, mahu bengkak susu tiga hari...sengsara diri ni....:(

Hari pertama semester ke-2....banyak sangat perkara yang merunsingkan....:(

Janganlah berkira sangat....

Rasa menyampah sangat bila ada orang yang terlalu berkira...kalau dengan orang lain, semuanya nak berkira. Tapi kalau terkena batang hidung sendiri, mulalah nak berbaik-baik dengan orang yang dia aniaya...

Saya memang tidak berkira sangat dalam menjalankan tugas kerana niat saya tetap LillahiTaala...tapi, kalau orang lain dah mula berkira dengan saya, huh...nasiblah orang tersebut. Saya pun akan mulalah berkira dengan dia. Bukan susah sangat nak jadi pemurah, tapi kalau kepala kita pun asyik dipijak dengan orang yang suka sangat berkira ni, letih juga.

Kalau boleh, bertugas lah secara profesional. Kalau asyik nak ikut mood, saya pun ada mood baik dengan mood tak baik, tapi saya tidaklah bekerja mengikut mood. Letih kalau bekerja dengan orang yang asyik 'moody' saja...asyik nak ikut angin dia, angin orang lain nak campak ke tepi ke?

Nasib baiklah saya ni makan gaji...kalau tak, mahu juga cabut lari kerja dengan syarikat lain. Kalau dah jadi cikgu ni, bukan senang nak tukar-tukar kerja...

Cuma saya selalu ingat pesan mak saya...Senyum saja ketika orang memarahi kita. Buat kerja dengan ikhlas...insyaAllah,  orang akan sayangkan kita.

Betul cakap mak tu...tapi kadang-kadang saya memberontak juga - memberontak dalam diam. Macam mana pula tu? Hmmm....banyak caranya kalau ingin dikongsi, tapi cukuplah sekadar saya membalas setiap perbuatan mereka yang menganiaya saya dengan cara yang paling berhemah. Saya ni manusia biasa, bukannya malaikat...orang dah buat kat kita, takkan nak diamkan saja. Betul tak?

Makan boleh sebarang makan...cakap jangan sebarang cakap... hati ini mudah terguris...kalau dah terguris...meletuslah perang dingin...huhuhuhu....

Ijab dan Kabul

Tanggal 11.11.11... memang ramai sangat yang mahu mengabadikan tarikh ini. Tak tahulah apa keramatnya tarikh ini sampai Tok Kadi pun tersenyum sendiri ketika ingin menikahkan adik ipar saya yang menjadi pasangan terakhir pada petang tersebut. Bahkan...ada lagi pasangan yang bakal dinikahkan selepas Isyak nanti.

Saya tidak mahu menyentuh hal tarikhnya...cuma saya suka akan kata-kata Tok Kadi sebelum upacara akad nikah dijalankan terhadap adik ipar saya dengan bakal suaminya.

Intipati kata-kata Tok Kadi :
Setiap umat Nabi Muhammad s.a.w yang mampu  berkahwin, perlu menyegerakan perkahwinan. Jikalau mereka mampu dari semua segi namun tidak mahu berkahwin atas apa alasan sekali pun, tidak akan mendapat syafaat Nabi di akhirat kelak.

Terlalu banyak hikmah perkahwinan mengikut pandangan Islam. Suka untuk saya kongsikan di sini walaupun mungkin ada di antara pembaca yang sudah mahir dengannya. Saya sekadar ingin berkongsi ilmu sahaja:

1. Meramaikan umat Nabi Muhammad s.a.w : yang dilahirkan dengan sah dan mengikut nasab keturunan yang baik-baik.

2. Mengelakkan maksiat : bagi semua pasangan yang mampu dan berkeinginan untuk mendirikan perkahwinan.

3. Merapatkan hubungan sesama insan : apabila berkahwin, kedua-dua keluarga pengantin akan bersatu dan akan menjadi satu keluarga besar.

4. Mengejar pahala : sama ada dalam hubungan antara suami isteri, hubungan anak-anak dengan ibu bapa atau pun ketika berbuat setiap kebaikan untuk keluarga tercinta.

5. Mengejar syurga di akhirat kelak : setiap perbuatan isteri, suami dan anak-anak yang berunsurkan kebaikan akan dikurniakan pahala berganda; walaupun membawa segelas air kosong kepada suami yang dahaga.

6. Mengukuhkan modal insan : anak-anak yang dibesarkan dalam suasana yang penuh kasih sayang bakal menjadi pemimpin yang disegani apabila mereka dewasa kelak.

Cukuplah setakat di sini. InsyaAllah, jika setiap pasangan yang baru berkahwin atau pun yang sudah lama berkahwin (namun masih bahagia) mengamalkan apa yang disuruh dan meninggalkan setiap larangan, hubungan mereka akan sentiasa berkekalan dengan izin Allah S.W.T. Perkahwinan itu sesungguhnya amat diraikan dan dinantikan....

When the 'maid' is not well

It is okay with me when other members of the family are not well for I will always be there to nurse them. But when I'm the one who suffers from a bad cold, I felt useless.

Now, I'm feeling quite better after five days staying in the bed with my little one. She is not well too. Last Sunday, after celebrating Aidil Adha, my head was suddenly spinning and I can see things double. My forehead started to feel warm and my mouth felt dry.

I slept through the afternoon with my three kids and my brother had the same symptoms like I did. He also suffered from a bad cold too. After taking medication, my fever didn't seem to be better. I couldn't eat much for all the food eaten were tasteless. I guess, I'm the last person to be affected after all my family members have been affected with this fever earlier than me.

Lucky me...my husband was on leave last Monday. He was the one who helped me out to do some house chores.  I couldn't even stand properly...so he has done all the cooking and cleaning. Thanks to him, this house 'maid' can rest for a while.

Being in bed for five days was not so amusing. I don't like to feel useless and helpless for I know I can take care of everything. But still, I know that getting sick is normal for human being. How we encounter it might be different from each other, but I know that we have to get well for us to be stronger again - to face our own battle in life. Like my friend used to say ... Life is a battle; be strong, be tough to face the battle.


And now...I'm happy to be healthy again....

Pulut Pagi


Resepi ni belajar dengan mak tersayang....


Bahan A
7     cawan beras pulut (basuh dan rendam semalaman)

Bahan B
2     cawan santan pekat
1/2  cawan air
1     sudu teh garam
Panaskan atas api kecil...jangan sampai mendidih

Cara-cara membuatnya:


*** Panaskan air di dalam periuk kukus terlebih dahulu sehingga mendidih.

1.Kukus beras pulut. Dalam 10 minit - 15 minit...ambil sedikit dan rasa. Jika rasanya lembut dan
   tidak terasa beras, boleh diangkat.

2. Tuangkan ke dalam besen. Gaul Bahan B bersama pulut tadi ... masukkan santan sedikit demi sedikit
    sehingga digaul sebati.

3. Kukus semula pulut yang digaul dengan santan tadi sehingga masak - anggaran masa 10 - 15 minit lagi,
    sehingga benar-benar masak dan lembut rasa pulutnya.

Dicicah dengan inti kelapa manis:

1   biji kelapa diparut - ambil putih sahaja.
1   ketul gula melaka (dipotong-potong)
Sedikit garam
Sedikit gula pasir
Sedikit air bagi melarutkan gula

*** Masukkan semua bahan tadi ke dalam kuali dan kacau hingga rata. Masak hingga kering. Manisnya :
       mengikut citarasa masing-masing.]

*** Sesetengah orang sukakan ikan masin / ikan kering / sambal ikan...nikmatilah pulut dengan citarasa anda.

NOTA:

1.  Untuk pulut kuning, rendam pulut bersama air yang dicampur pewarna kuning telur (semalaman). Cara
     mengukusnya sama sahaja dengan di atas.

2.  Untuk pulut pagi yang berwarna coklat :
     - masak gula melaka bersama sedikit air
     - kukus pulut dahulu (seperti di atas)
     - gaulkan gula melaka dan santan bersama pulut sehingga rata dan sebati
     - kukus sehingga masak
     - Pulut ini dimakan bersama kelapa parut putih yang digaul sedikit garam.

Saya tidaklah berapa pandai memasak pulut, tapi ingin berkongsi dengan rakan-rakan yang sama seperti saya (yang kurang mahir memasak pulut). Selamat mencuba...

When the other half is not well...

I just returned home from Pahang yesterday. I was sad to watch my son's face for he was not feeling well since Thursday. I bought him some traditional 'kuih' or sweet treat and he just gave me a weak smile. His forehead was still warm and I couldn't help myself to feel sad for I was not there to hug him through his sleepless night.

After fetching my daughter from school, the four of us (me, my twins and my 4-month-old daughter) went home. We waited for my husband to have a dinner with him. My twins were delighted when their father took us out for a dinner. My son seemed quite well last night.

But then...my daughter started to cough and she seemed to have a cold. We went back after buying few things at the store. The night seemed to be a long night for me...my daughter started to have a fever too - after my son recovered from his.

This morning...my husband suddenly told me that he has to see his doctor - he is not feeling well too. Oh my...my three beloved people are not feeling well. My youngest daughter has only a slight cold. Me? I'm started to have one...but I have to force myself to get better. I have to nurse my family. If I'm not well...who is going to feed them? Who is going to nurse them to be healthy again?

My husband doesn't have to go to work today...but seeing him lying helpless in the bed makes me sad. He is always there to help me. He is not the kind of person who gets sick easily. Still...a human is a human...being sick is just a part of our nature.

Now...they are still lying in the bed. I'm taking a short break before making some porridge for tea-time later. They have to be strong again....

Myung Wol The Spy

One more Korean drama to feed my addiction...the story is full with drama and comedy. There were some hilarious moments which I like so much. Watching this drama makes me quite happy and it helps me to relax a bit.


Han Myung Wol is a North Korean spy, works together with Choi Ryu, Han Hee Bok and Ri Ok Soon to 'marry' a famous actor / singer - Kang Woo. Their order is to bring Kang Woo to the North after their marriage - to get both nations united again.

By the way...the story revolves around six main characters...Han Myung Wol (Han Ye Seul), Kang Woo (Eric), Choi Ryu (Lee Jin Wook), Joo In Ah (Jang Hee Jin), Han Hee Bok (Jo Hyung Ki) and Ri Ok Soon (Yoo Ji In).

Despite her job as a spy, she is actually quite naive when it comes to her ability to seduce a man to marry her. So many funny incidents along her attempts to get Kang Woo to fall in love with her. The story went well till the end of it. And...I really like the ending....:)

Have fun watching it....

Jengka oh Jengka....Ep 2

Setelah hampir 3 minggu mencari rumah untuk disewa atau dibeli...akhirnya mungkin ada rezeki saya kali ini. Cuma yang ralatnya...harganya lebih kurang dengan rumah di Kuala Lumpur, lagi mahal daripada rumah saya di Rawang.

Borang pinjamahan perumahan kerajaan telah selamat dihantar kepada peguam pemaju, dengan harapan dapatlah pinjaman 100%. Doa dan harapan sajalah...moga-moga urusan kali ini dipermudahkan Allah S.W.T.

Rumah yang mungkin jadi milik saya kali ini Semi-D tetapi tidak bercantum mana-mana bahagian pun dengan rumah sebelah - hanya berada dalam satu pagar. Tanah yang ada kalau ingin ditambah, bolehlah dibina dua buah bilik lagi. Tapi bak kata suami saya...material yang diguna pakai sewaktu pembinaan memang berkualiti dan agak mahal, maka sebab itulah harga rumah melambung sebaik sahaja rumah-rumah di kawasan itu siap dibina. Untunglah mereka yang sudah menempah rumah dari awal lagi (walaupun terbengkalai dalam jangka masa yang agak lama juga).

Maka...tidak jadilah saya membeli rumah di Temerloh yang harganya agak murah berbanding dengan di Jengka. Prospek rumah untuk disewakan agak tinggi kelak kerana pelajar-pelajar UiTM yang keluar masuk saban tahun menyebabkan saya tidak ragu-ragu untuk membeli rumah di sini. Manalah tahu...saya mungkin akan 'ditendang' ke negeri lain pula ....hehehehehe....:)

Kawan-kawan....doakanlah agar urusan kali ini lancar. Tidak sanggup rasanya hidup berkelana tanpa tempat berteduh dan berjauhan dengan keluarga....Aminnnnn!!!!!

Saving Natural Resources

While babysitting my 4-month-old daughter, I couldn't stop thinking about my 'Baju Kurung' which is my formal attire to work - three pairs left in the closet. I have to start ironing at least ten pairs for the next two weeks; not to mention ten different 'tudung' or scarves that have to be matched with my baju kurung.

But today, I'm not going to share about my baju kurung...I just want to share some tips in saving natural resources : electricity, gas, water and others.

1. Iron your clothes in bulk.
    - Especially if you have formal attire to office that needs ironing. It helps a lot to save your money and
       electricity too.

2. Use semi automatic washing machine.
    - You can control the level of water and save energy too.

3. Use shower while bathing.
    - Saving a lot of water and it is kind of relaxing too...

4. Carpool 
    - Help in reducing air pollution and save your money too...

5. Use watering can / watering pot
    - To water your plants. It helps you to control the amount of water used for different types of plants.

6. Walk to the nearest place
    - If the shop / office / school or any places that you have to go is closer to your house, just have a short
       walk. It helps you to exercise too...

7. Use text messages / e-mail / yahoo messenger
    - Or any methods that suit you to convey a message. It will save more money and energy too...

8. Bring your own shopping bag
   - No more PLASTIC BAGS!!!!

9. Recycle...
    - Either sell those recyclable items (to get extra cash) or reuse them to save our planet.

10. Green office
     - Using e-mail : meetings, announcements, letters and so on

11. Bring your own food container
      - Ask the food seller to put the food in the food container...more hygienic

There are so many ways to help us to save our beloved mother earth. Start doing you part before it's too late. I know I have done mine....So, when will you start yours?

Baby-faced Beauty

I have finished watching Baby-faced Beauty - a Korean drama which has 20 episodes. The story is quite relaxing for me to watch. It has all elements - comedy, drama, and some slight intense moments in it.

The story revolves around four characters - Lee So Young (Jang Na Ra), Choi Jin Wook (Choi Daniel), Ji Seung Il (Ryu Jin) and Kang Yoon Seo (Kim Min Seo) and there are also few strong characters in this drama.

The story is about Lee So Young who is 34 years old but accidentally has to lie about her age in order to get a job as a designer at a very established clothes designing company - The Style owned by Ji Seung Il. Many interesting incidents happened to her and Choi Jin Wook from the beginning of the story to the end of it.

For those Korean drama fans...this light drama should be watched because it is quite interesting to watch and I like this drama for it is not so heavy for me. You should try to watch this drama to ease your tension at work or for a fan like me...I'm just addicted to Korean Dramas....I have to feed my addiction for my own sake....:)

Hikmah senyum dan sabar....

Mengapa terlalu banyak hati untuk dijaga? Mengapa terlalu banyak perasaan perlu diambil kira? Mengapa perlu berhati-hati semasa berbicara? Terlalu banyak persoalan sebegini seringkali menghentam perasaan dan minda saya.

Sebagai insan kerdil, saya tidak lepas daripada membuat kesalahan. Malah kadang kala diri ini juga sering ditindas oleh segolongan manusia yang mungkin dari segi pangkat dan darjatnya lebih tinggi daripada saya tetapi zahirnya tetap manusia biasa di sisi Allah S.W.T.

Namun...saya tetap perlu menjaga budi bahasa dan tertib bicara walaupun ketika itu perasaan marah meluap-luap dan keinginan yang tinggi untuk membalas perbuatan mereka yang kurang berhemah dalam pergaulan. Saya kurang pasti akan kebolehan mengawal amarah saya (panas baran sedikit....) tetapi pesan emak yang sentiasa saya pegang.....Biarlah orang menyakiti hati kita dengan perkataan, balas sahaja dengan senyuman. Nescaya orang itu yang akan rugi.

Itulah hikmah kesabaran dalam menangani isu kehidupan saya seharian yang sentiasa berdepan dengan pelbagai jenis manusia. Sabar dengan kerenah suami dan anak-anak....sabar dengan kerenah pelajar-pelajar...dan sabar dengan kerenah pihak atasan. Siapalah saya untuk membentak-bentak dan bermasam muka.

Kadang kala sakit di hati tiada siapa yang nampak....mujurlah ada tempat mengadu (terima kasih ya suamiku).   Kepada golongan yang suka menindas orang lain dan kurang berhemah dalam mengatur bicara....sedarlah bahawa anda telah melukakan perasaan orang lain. Walaupun mereka mampu tersenyum, tetapi luka di hati sukar untuk dirawat. Tindakan anda itu akan meninggalkan kesan mendalam dan kemaafan sukar untuk diberi...

Mungkin saya juga hipokrit juga...tetapi saya perlu menjaga hati dan perasaan orang lain walaupun perasaan marah itu membuatkan saya terseksa sendirian. Kalau saya membalas perbuatan mereka dengan kata-kata berbaur marah...mereka akan mengingati saya sebagai seorang yang pemarah. Jadi, biarlah orang mengingati diri saya sebagai orang yang sabar dan mampu untuk bertoleransi...jika saya sudah tiada kelak.

InsyaAllah....

Pindah lagi....

Bulan ini baru masuk bulan ke-5 saya berada di Jengka, Pahang selepas ditukarkan ke Bahagian Matrikulasi. Saya ke sana hanya sekadar membawa pakaian dan keperluan yang penting sahaja - ibarat berpindah sehelai sepinggang.

Nasib saya agak baik kerana ada juga insan-insan yang mengasihani saya dan menawarkan tempat tinggal yang selesa. Kadar sewa yang agak tinggi menjadi beban kepada saya yang terpaksa membayar pelbagai jenis hutang (memang tak dapat lari pun...) dan jika hendak membeli rumah pun, harganya menyamai rumah di Kuala Lumpur.

Maka...saya terpaksalah mengemas rumah di Rawang untuk membawa sedikit perabot dan barang keperluan lain ke Jengka. Kebetulan pula, rumah di Rawang sudah ada penyewa...maka kasihan pula dengan penyewa yang terpaksa bersesak-sesak dengan perabot saya (maklumlah...niat di hati nak tinggal di Rawang sehingga pencen).

Jadi...dengan rasminya saya akan menetap di Bandar Pusat Jengka (Bandar Tun Abdul Razak) sebagai ahli baru negeri Pahang....Alhamdulillah...kini sudah tempat berteduh yang selesa dan rakan-rakan serumah yang sporting lagi baik hati.

Dan yang paling seronok...saya menghantar Ardini ke rumah pengasuhnya yang tidak jauh dari rumah warden (saya menetap di rumah warden) dengan hanya menggunakan stroller sahaja...tidak perlu membazir minyak kereta. Suasana yang nyaman pada waktu pagi amat menyeronokkan buat saya dan si kecil. Walaupun kerja dalam waktu pejabat, saya tidak rasa terbeban kerana saya hanya perlu fokus terhadap pengajaran dan pembelajaran tanpa ada kerja-kerja lain (yang menyusahkan saya selama ini...)

Alhamdulillah....doa saya dimakbulkan lagi....:)

Planning for a short break...


Thinking of living far away from twins makes me a bit frustrated. I can't entertain them as a mother should do. So, by having few days off from my work, I'm planning to have a short break with them - no more work and no more thinking about continuing my unfinished work.

So...where should you go for a short break? Even for only a day or maybe only for few precious hours with your precious children? Working mothers would like to have a rest on weekends just to relax themselves although during that two-day-off they still have to do their usual chores.

Here are some activities that you can do to entertain your children:

1. Go for a picnic - seaside, river side, or near to a waterfall. Don't forget to bring their favourite food
    along.

2. Do a window-shopping activity - it would be fun because you need to relax your mind and your brain.
    Don't concentrate on buying things because it is for you to walk slowly especially if you are in expensive
   clothing department - just enjoy the scenery of expensive clothes that you could not afford to buy...:)

3. Have fun at a theme park - children would love it so much...you can just watch them playing happily or
    you can join them too. Being a kid is a bless....

4. Have lunch / dinner outside - select a good restaurant. It is good for family gathering because the
    atmosphere is so relaxing. Eating with family is one of the easiest ways to be connected to each other.

5. Watch some movies - at home or in cinema...let them chose the movie that they want to watch. Buy them a
     big size popcorn and the favourite drinks...they will enjoy sitting there with you.

6. Go shopping for groceries - kids love doing this. Let them push the trolley be a grown up for a while. Ask
    them what to buy...at least what they like for dinner. It shows that they have the responsibility as a family
    member. It's quite different from window-shopping. Just make sure you follow your budget for that month.

7. Bake a cake / make some cookies - they would enjoy it very much. Let them be the chef for a while. You
    are there just as a helper for them. They would brag themselves for days if their cakes / cookies turn out to
    be delicious.
8. Ask them...Where do you want to go? What do you like to do?...without hesitating, they would love to
    answer your questions quickly.

Hope you would enjoy your day with your beloved ones - I know I will!!!!

Practice makes prefect...

When my students asked my permission to practice for their Speaking Test this week, I felt overjoyed. Their enthusiasms make me jumping to the air - this is what I have been waiting for since day one of becoming a teacher.

They know that they are having troubles with speaking, so by asking my help, I felt that they really look up to me as a teacher. Although I didn't feel good last night (for having a mild cold), I tried to entertain and help those students.

Many students out there are having difficulties in Speaking Test for MUET but most of them are not asking any helps from their teachers. I do believe that only by practicing, they can succeed the test especially if they don't use the language in their daily life.

I have the same problems way before I succeeded as an English teacher. Thanks to all my English teachers since primary school up until my English lecturers in Universiti Putra Malaysia, I have been quite good with the language itself.

So, I will try my best to help my students this week in practicing their MUET Speaking Test. I hope they can converse comfortably without having any nervousness while speaking in front of their friends and not to forget the Examiners...

All the best....!!!!

49 days...

My tears kept flowing through my cheeks last night - after the last episode of 49 Days (Journey of a soul). I have watched these long 20 episodes for 1 week (busy working)...and the story is quite sad and so many lesson to be learned. It's not that I believed those things so much, but the true meaning that lies in the story makes me so sad...

The main character Ji-Hyun's (Nam Gyu-Ri) involved in a car accident and caused herself to be in a comatose condition for a period of time. Koreans believe that souls have 49 days on earth before they can continue their journey to another world 'above'. So, she met the Scheduler (Jung Il Woo) who helped her to finish her unfinished business - whether she is going to live again or to be transported to another world.

That's when she has to possess Yi-Kyung (Lee Yo-Won) to complete her journey to become alive again because it is not her time to die yet.

This story involves so many big names in South Korean film industries. The moment that I remember is when Ji-Hyun said that she wants to leave a good remark of herself towards her family and her friends. She doesn't want them to feel sad for their lost - they should cherish the time being instead of being demotivated from the lost that they suffer.

 Although the story is quite sad and deep in their emotions, but still I can relate it to myself as a human being...we cannot run away from death. You might 'cheat' death few times, but when the time comes, you don't have any choice - you cannot run away from your destiny whether you are old or young, healthy or sick and not to mention if you are good or bad.

If you are a Korean drama fan, you might like the story...although the ending is so pitiful for all the characters involved. The story gave me strength to live my live to the fullest.....

Mentally and Physically PREPARED

The thought of living together in Jengka made me happy, but something good has happened to my husband and he asked my permission to stay working in Kuala Lumpur. I was quite sad at first...


Later, we have discussed really thoroughly about our family matters. So, we have come to our final decision - we are going to live 'separately'. Not in a bad way, but for the time being I will live with my three children while he is working in Kuala Lumpur. Every weekend we will see each other either in Kuala Lumpur or Jengka.

I have never been apart from my family before, but now I have to be mentally and physically prepared. I guess some people out there have the same problem like mine, so I would to share some tips that help me out in case I miss him so much....or if you miss your loved ones too.

1. Give them a call - every day and every night.
    Just to hear their voice will make you happy. Ask anything although they are simple questions. 

2. Say that you love them so much.
    It is to show how much you love them and there'll be no regret later if something bad happens to either of 
    you - not that we ask for anything bad to happen...but still, showing your love means a lot to your loved 
    ones.

3. Send love messages every day.
    Just like people who are in love, it is not wrong for married couples or even parents to send love messages 
    to their loved ones. Just to show their love to each other.

4. Set time to spend some quality time between you / with your children.
    Have dinner together, go shopping, or even bring your children to the park. They miss you a lot and taking 
    them to a park or any places shows that you concern about them.

5. Remember special dates.
    Birthdays, anniversaries, or any other important dates in your family should be remembered although you 
    cannot be together with them to celebrate it. You might celebrate it later, but still, call them during that 
    particular celebration.

6. Buy something when you are visiting them.
    It is not necessary to buy expensive things - just some chocolate bars would make them jumping to the sky. 
   The important thing is for you to arrive safely, but stll...children love something to eat or to play with. Not to 
   mention your spouse....

There are many ways to prepare your mental and physical to make you strong enough to face the days without your spouse or your family. I try so hard to be a strong wife and mother - for I know that sooner or later, I would be living alone too...waiting for my judgment day to arrive. So, I better prepare myself mentally and physically to become a better person.

Jengka oh Jengka....


Minggu pertama selepas tiga bulan bercuti merupakan  minggu yang paling sibuk. Susah hati dengan anak... susah hati dengan silibus pelajar dan susah hati dengan masalah rumah sewa (di Jengka ini...rumah sewa amat sukar kerana biasanya 'disimpan' khas untuk pelajar UiTM yang disewa mengikut kepala). 

Akhirnya saya terpaksa menempatkan Ardini di sebuah Taska setelah agak sukar mendapatkan pengasuh di bandar ini. Memanglah naluri ibu itu agak tepat...taska itu tidak dapat memenuhi kehendak saya sebagai seorang ibu. Maka, saya mula mencari taska lain sambil berdoa agar saya mendapat pengasuh yang lebih menyayangi Ardini seadanya....Hampir seminggu saya mencari pengasuh dan juga rumah sewa di bandar Jengka ini. 

Minggu kedua...Isnin...saya menempatkan Ardini di sebuah taska lain dengan harapan menggunung supaya dia lebih selesa. Hati saya masih lagi kurang selesa. Kebetulan pula perbualan saya dengan seorang kakitangan di sini amat menggembirakan saya kerana isterinya ingin mencari bayi untuk dijaga. Pucuk dicita, ulam mendatang. Saya sangat-sangat gembira kerana doa saya dimakbulkan. Ardini tampak selesa dengan pengasuhnya malah dia sudah mula ceria seperti sebelum dia dihantar ke taska.

Yang pasti...saya lebih selesa menghantar anak saya kepada pengasuh yang dapat menumpukan sepenuh perhatian kepadanya daripada menghantarnya ke taska yang hanya bergantung kepada jumlah bayi yang ramai untuk mengaut keuntungan. 

Alhamdulillah....urusan anak sudah selesai. Masalah rumah pula memeningkan kepala saya. Usaha akan saya gandakan...moga kali ini urusan saya akan dipermudahkan Allah....

Doakanlah saya supaya tabah mengharungi hidup mendatang bersama kembar dan si kecil ini tanpa ditemani bapa mereka yang terpaksa bekerja di Kuala Lumpur mencari rezeki di sana....

'Walking' for a good heart


Tired of your hectic life in the office? Try having a short walk in the evening... it might help you to ease your stress a little bit. But...try to walk in a slow pace. Breathe in and out slowly while walking. This can help the oxygen to go directly to your heart and then to your brain.




Some people like to use the elevator although they are going to the first floor...why not climbing the stairs for a change? It helps to burn out your calories - especially after having lunch. Try to climb the stairs slowly and breathe in and out slowly. It is actually helping you out in many ways to be a healthier person.

I like to have a short walking too. Being a teacher, I have to walk to each class every day. Sometimes walking can be so tiring, but I just consider it as an exercise because I don't really have time to exercise at home. So, if I have walked to classes every single day, I hope that my heart is getting stronger day by day.

If you don't really have time to exercise, why don't you try walking in the evening? You could walk to the nearest shop instead of riding your bike. Sending your kids to the school can be an exercise if you are walking with them (only if the school is near to your house). There are many ways to promote walking habit in your daily life. This doesn't require you to spend money to buy expensive machine to help you to work out. Walking is actually a great way to release your stress, especially if you are walking in a green area - it will provide plenty of oxygen for your lungs.

So, why don't you try walking for a change? It might help you to live longer....

Taking credits on other people's work....

Today’s topic is quite interesting because it happens all the time to some people out there. It is not because they are weak, but because there are some people who have thought that they can simply bully others in pursuing their goals...without knowing that whatever they did along the way might have hurt other people’s feeling.




I’m talking about taking credits on someone else’s work...by putting your name on it. It happens a lot these days either you are working or studying. It could happen to those who are working hard night and day to finish off the important proposal and at the end of the day, the boss will take the credit of the brilliant work.
Does this sound familiar to you? Well...if you are working in group, it is not wrong to take the credit for what you have done...but if the work is done by other person and you are the boss / manager (or any other name for your post) who is presenting the work and somehow put your name on it; it shows that you are actually having the pleasure of taking credits of other people’s work.

If somehow the work is being criticized...you will automatically put the blame on that poor person. That is why this kind of thing is not really acceptable in our modern world. If you have the guilty of what you have done earlier, you should not be ashamed to take the blame after taking other person’s work.
We are working as a team...or you are a person who likes to be an outcast and works alone in your isolated world? It is your own choice...but for sure, taking credit on someone else’s work is not tolerable at all!!!

Packing your things....


Packing clothes and other important items can be hectic sometimes. So do I. So here some tips from my experience on how to pack your things accordingly (especially on those who can't decide what to bring to any occasion).


1. Don't pack your things overnight. You might miss out some important items.

2. Focus on the occasion - a short course, seminar, field job,  and so on. You might need a pair of formal attire each day. So fill in the bag with enough attire - a pair for each day. Don't forget to bring one or two extra formal attire...you don't know what might happen in the future. If you are going for a trip, you need to fill in your bag with leisure attire.

3. Sort out your items - toiletries, undergarments, trousers, t-shirts, shirts or dresses, and night garments. You may distribute them into smaller groups according to how many days you are going to stay later on. You might find it handy because it helps you to organize and not to over bring your items.

4. You may need to bring one or two extra undergarments, t-shirt and trousers...it might be necessary if something unwanted happens during your trip or other occasion you're attending.

5. Put your toiletries in one small bag and another small bag or case for makeup items. It is much easier for most men out there...they don't have to bring so many things. Don't forget your medicine if you are on it and make sure you put the medicine closer to you.

6. Check your cash money, don't show up your cash...hide it somewhere safe. Nowadays, credit card is essential when you are travelling far away from your country or even in your own country. It is much safer than bringing your money bag.

7. If you are bringing your kids...it is the same, but they need more clothes than you do. You might need more bags to fill in their items.

Enjoy packing? Don't do a last-minute-job. You have to pack your things carefully so that you don't have to turn back just to get the things that you left at home.

Me? I'm going off to Jengka today with my three-month-old baby. I have to go to work far away from my husband and my twins for the next two months before they join me in December. Can't wait for us to be reunited again as a family.....

Pandir betul la....

Setelah bersusah payah....akhirnya dapat jugalah Pak Pandir membeli kereta idaman. Kereta apa? Biarlah rahsia....

Kisah 1:

Sedang syok Pak Pandir membawa kereta...dia ditahan oleh polis traffik

Pak Pandir:   Encik...kenapa saya ditahan? Saya tidak membuat kesalahan pun...
Polis:            Pak Cik...cuba pak cik ingat balik, berapa laju pak cik berdesup kat lebuh raya tadi...
Pak Pandir:  Oh...biasa saja tu...(Tersenyum bangga)
Polis:            200 km sejam pak cik cakap biasa?
Pak Pandir:  Kalau saya bawa perlahan...bila nak sampai kampung? Kampung saya jaraknya 500 km
                   tau...sepatutnya meter ni boleh pergi lagi jauh tau...!!!
Polis:           ????


Kisah 2:

Pak Pandir memandu perlahan di satu kawasan kampung. Dia berhentikan keretanya apabila melihat papan tanda.

Mak Andeh:   Kenapa lama sangat awak berhenti ni? Mana ada apa-apa kat sini?
Pak Pandir:    Huish...kau mana tau! Kau tak ambil lesen kereta. Kalau kita nampak papan tanda ni...kita
                      kena tunggu sampai selesai...
Mak Andeh:  Papan tanda?
Pak Pandir:   (Menjuihkan bibirnya) Tuuu.....
Mak Andeh:  Sampai kiamat pun tak jalan Pak Pandir Oiiii.....sekarang ni cuti sekolah la....!!!!!


Kisah 3:

Mak Andeh:   Berhenti sekejap. Nak ke tandas sekejap.
Pak Pandir:    Mana ada tandas kat kawasan ni?
Mak Andeh:   Tu...stesen minyak tu. Berhenti la sekejap.
Pak Pandir:    Kamu ni kan...sah sah lah tu stesen minyak!!! Bukannya tandas!!!
Mak Andeh:  Aishhhh!!!!!

Dilema seorang saya....hehehe...


Pagi tadi sempat lagi saya bertanya kepada suami saya..."Sudah gemukkah saya?" Seraya tersenyum dia menjawab..."Sedang-sedang saja..."

Mungkin bagi sesetengah wanita yang baru melahirkan anak tidak mempunyai masalah untuk kembali ke bentuk tubuh asal, tapi saya agak susah untuk kurangkan berat badan. Maklumlah, metabolisme rendah, darah rendah dan kalau berat badan naik sikit saja... lutut akan menjadi mangsa.

Masalahnya, selera makan makin menjadi-jadi semenjak anak ni kuat menyusu. Dahaga dan lapar yang datang serentak membuatkan saya agak susah mengawal pemakanan saya. Orang kata, menyusukan anak ni mudah kurus...hmmm...selera saya makin naik ada lah...

Saya suka apabila badan saya ringan kerana mudah untuk bergerak ke sana ke mari. Lagi pun berat badan ideal saya sukar untuk diperolehi sejak usia saya masuk ke angka 30 dan ke atas. Menjadi ibu yang bekerja agak susah bagi saya jika berat badan melebihi apa yang saya target. Bukan niat untuk kurus...tapi niat untuk lebih sihat dan panjang umur untuk membesarkan anak-anak saya.

Jantung kita perlu dijaga...makanan memang nampak menyelerakan dan kadang-kadang saya kalah dengan sepotong kek coklat...(memang tak tahan dugaan... tapi nafsu mengatasi segalanya)... tapi saya selalu berfikir, tak salah untuk menikmati hidangan sebegitu sekali sekala untuk membantu saya menangani stress saya di tempat kerja atau di rumah.

Nasib baik suami memahami, dia suka menegur dalam nada bergurau supaya saya tidak berkecil hati dengannya. Dia suka menggunakan ayat..."Dah okay dah...tapi kalau turun sikit lagi ... lagi nampak cantik..." Terima kasih banyak-banyak kepada Suami saya yang menjadi pendorong kepada saya untuk kekal sederhana tetapi sihat....

Bagi saya....Kurus tidak bermakna sihat...badan besar tidak bermakna sakit...asalkan diri kita tahu menjaga kesihatan demi kepentingan orang yang tersayang....

A mother's heart....


I'm a little worried of my newborn baby... she has the tendency to choke up during breastfeeding or drinking the milk from a bottle. My twins didn't have the same problem and they were taken care by my own mother since they were two months old. 

And now, thinking of sending her to the day-care center makes me more worried than before. I try so hard not to think negatively about those centers... but reading some terrified news on the papers makes me nervous of letting outsiders to take care of her. She is just a small baby with no bad attitude (compared to the twins when they were on her age). She likes to smile and she only cries if she's hungry or needs her diaper to be changed. And sometimes she will sleep for a long hour without drinking any milk. So, I'm worried if she'll be neglected by the person in-charge of her at the center. 

But, being a working mom is not easy. I'm pretty sure that most working mothers out there would have the same worries like me. I don't have any choice but to leave everything in God's hand. InsyaAllah, Allah will take care everything for I'm working hard to build up a strong foundation for my three kids.

For mothers out there... we need to pray hard for our children's safety when we are working hard outside and they are under someone else's hand.

Hikmah menggunakan tangan

1. kenapa kita gunakan tangan?
- Mengikut cara Rasulullah s.a.w,beliau akan menggaulkan lauk dan nasi dengan tangan kanannya dan kemudian membiarkan sebentar, lalu Rasullah saw akan mengambil sedikit garam menggunakan jari kecilnya(yg last tu), lalu Rasullah saw akan menghisap garam itu. Kemudian barulah Rasulullah makan nasi dan lauknya. Mengapa? Kerana kedua belah tangan
kita ada mengeluarkan 3 macam enzim,tetapi konsentrasi di tangan kanan lebih sedikit dari yg kiri. Ini adalah kerana enzim yg ada di tangan kanan itu merupakan enzim yang dapat menolong proses penghadaman (digestion), ia merupakan the first process of digestion.
Mengapa menghisap garam?
Kerana garam adalah sumber mineral dari tanah yg diperlukan oleh badan kita.
Dua cecah garam dari jari kita itu adalah sama dgn satu liter air mineral. Kita berasal dari tanah maka lumrahnya bahan yang asal dari bumi (tanah) inilah yg paling berkhasiat untuk kita.
Kenapa garam?
Selain dari sebab ia adalah sumber mineral, garam juga adalah penawar yang paling mujarab bagi keracunan, mengikut Dr, dihospital-hospital , the first line of treatment for poisoning adalah dengan memberi Sodium Chloride, iaitu GARAM.
Garam juga dapat menghalang sihir dan makhluk-makhluk halus yang ingin menggangu manusia.
2. Cara Rasulullah mengunyah -
Rasulullah akan mengunyah sebanyak 40 kali untuk membiarkan makanan itu betul-betul lumat agar perut kita senang memproseskan makanan itu.
3. Membaca Basmalah -(Bismillahirrahma Nirrahim).
Membaca Basmalah sebelum makan untuk mengelakkan penyakit. Kerana bakteria dan racun
ada membuat perjanjian dengan Allah swt, apabila Basmalah dibaca maka bakteria dan racun akan musnah dari sumber makanan itu.
4. Cara Rasulullah minum. -
- Janganlah kita minum berdiri walaupun ia makruh tetapi ia makruh yang menghampiri kepada haram.
- Jangan kita minum dari bekas yg besar dan jangan bernafas sedang kita minum.
Kerana apabila kita minum dari bekas yg besar, lumrahnya kita akan meneguk air dan dalam proses minum itu, kita tentu akan bernafas dan menghembuskan nafas dari hidung kita. Kerana apabila kita hembus, kita akan mengeluarkan CO2 iaitu carbon dioxide, yang apabila bercampur dgn air H20, akan menjadi H2CO3, iaitu sama dengan cuka, menyebabkan minuman itu menjadi acidic.
- Jangan meniup air yg panas, sebabnya sama diatas. Cara minum, seteguk bernafas, seteguk bernafas sehingga habis.
