When People of The Book Fight...

Christians and Jews are listed as People of the Book in the Quran. Because these religions originated are funneled through One God and through the same prophets. That is why Moses, Jacob, Joseph, David, Noah, Abraham are listed in the respective religions holy books. However, as years passed, the interpretation of God has 'developed'... Jews were a lot more associated with teachings of Moses, Christians with Jesus and Islam with Mohammad (PBUH). but they are basically the same teachings... as they rooted from the same prophets and God.

Religious war took place since the beginning of time and yet till now... somehow religion that brings the idea of peace and harmony has resulted in violence and wars. I don't want to be discussing the reasons... the reasons might not be the issue of spreading the religion but maybe imperialism.

but i do want to discuss the reason why this blog arises. recently, the High Court has agreed to allow the Catholic weekly magazine, the herald to use the word Allah in its articles. However, the question arises from there... Why Allah? are we preaching about the same God?

no, we don't! Allah is the term we use to refer to God in Islam... while Catholics refer to Holy Trinity (where i was told that Catholics believe that God comes in 3 forms) - One God(not Allah), Holy Ghost and Jesus Christ.

we Muslims don't believe that God comes in any representations. He is One... and He is Allah SWT... definitely not the same God that is referred to by Catholics.

The Herald said 'Allah' is used to replace the term 'God' in Malay... however, if the word 'God' is translated into Malay... the word can be as 'Tuhan' where it is more general... by using 'Allah', it will definitely cause confusion... because it is definitely not the same God as the Catholics believe in. hence, there are many Muslims who do not agree when this was commissioned.

And again... religions that should deliver the teachings of patience is a virtue has turned humans against each other. Someone burned a few churches down last week... and then mosques are also being vandalized. To prove what exactly? vandalism and arson can prove nothing... but only to make matters worse than it already is.

what is the point of fighting for your religion but go against your morals and ethics and also going against the teachings and principles of a religion (regardless of Islam or Christian or Judaism)in the first place? I am pretty sure that there are definitely other non-childish, sinless way to be heard...

where are our Muslim lawyers and leaders??!

Two is Definitely Better than One ;)

I'm in a sappy mood so sue me... :P

Boys Like Girls : Two Is Better Than One

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life
And I thought hey
You know this could be something
'Cause everything you do and words you say
You know that it all takes my breath away
And now I'm left with nothing

'Cause maybe it's true, that I can't live without you
Well maybe two is better than one
There's so much time, to figure out the best of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two, is better than one

I remember every look upon your face,
The way you roll your eyes, the way you taste
You make it hard for breathing
'Cause when I close my eyes and drift away
I think of you and everythings okay
And finally now, we're leaving

And maybe it's true, that I can't live without you
Well maybe two is better than one
There's so much time, to figure out the best of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two, is better than one

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life
And I thought hey

Maybe it's true, that I can't live without you
Maybe two is better than one
There's so much time, to figure out the best of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking

Oooh I can't live without you
'Cause baby two is better than one
There's so much time, to figure out the best of my life
And I've figured out with all that's said and done
Two, is better than one

Two Thousand and Nine

2009 marks a significant year for me... not that i asked for a less complicated year or a better year. it has just been an interesting yearbook... and i'd look back on it anytime :)

the most embarrassing moment to date
i'd simply answer it was sometime in March 2009, where i broke down during a presentation and hyperventilated in front of an audience of 20 people or so. and conveniently, it happened in the middle of an exhibition hall, so that helped to further amplify my squeaks throughout the whole space. it was just so uncontrollable and no one came to my aid, i guess they were completely awed by the display (or they were worried i might turn into Incredible Hulk soon :P). for the first few days, it was too much of an embarrassment to talk about it. but when life gives u a lemon, give life a 'twist' ;D so after a while, i just make a joke out of it... just to get some lightness into the situation :) but to be honest, that was one of the most horrifically embarrassing episodes i wouldn't want to be in again... everrrrrr!

being an architect had been my ambition for 13 years. so in late April 2009, i finished my 5-gruelling-years-that-took-me-6-bloody-years-instead course and acquired a degree in August 2009. having that ambition helped me focus and help me know what i want and work towards it. why had i picked this ambition? i was a lot into arts... i wouldn't say i was gifted but i had passion for it and my mom sent me for art classes and that improved my art skills. and having my dad in the construction industry does influence me a lot. i guess architecture is a combination of both science and art... hence i took a profession that has both subjects that i am really passionate about.

love life
i'm not a type of person who easily falls for someone. i don't believe love comes that easy. it's not that simple. and i don't believe that love can be dimissed by a break-up... i think it's forever embedded inside of u despite how bad it turns out in the end. Because u gotta love something that's 'real' and 'worthwhile'... and that happened to me for the first time ever in November 2009...

with the exception of first topic, i hope to continue my diary in 2010 :)

See you in 2010! feliz año nuevo!! God bless :-*****

i ridiculously took a vow - from now on, the only money i take out from my bank account is only to pay off my car n the minimal necessities to survive on monthly basis...

but if i dont religiously keep it, what consequences do i get other than not getting what i want by having the vow in the first place.

what caused this inspiration is that i miss someone terribly... even just the thought of it makes me almost want to cry. but i had to be strong... because i dont know if it's worth it... besides, i have to be in my right mind to be productive at work.

never have i expressed any sort of (rather) intimate feeling for someone... well, my next vow is that this will be my first and my last... for which, i hope n pray that all goes well and there's a better tomorrow for us... even if we had to part ways :)

Things we do but never question

Recently, the feud between Malaysia and Indonesia escalated. Initially, in the 1960's (if i'm not mistaken) Indonesia did not conform to the idea of creating a new country - Malaya (now known as Malaysia). Perhaps that started the feud.

And soon later, came the issue of Indonesian maids who were abused by Malaysian employers and the Indonesian republic is trying to instill the idea that if Malaysians are to hire Indonesian maids, we need to comply new conditions - that the maids are to paid minimum of RM800/month and given a day off every week.

Well, they got to acknowledge this. Indonesia has the highest percentage of Muslim, almost 90%! Which makes the country has the largest Muslim population. So the maids (which mostly are Muslims) that gone work overseas can choose between a Rm1700 in Korea and Rm450 in Malaysia, where they don't have to take care of dogs or cook pork (which are both most banned animals to make physical contact with in Islam).

Now even the littlest issues like the Indonesian beauty Manohara's scandalous marriage to Kelantanese prince and currently, the Discovery Channel documentary coverage on Malaysia mistakenly took a Balinese dance as one of Malaysia's cultural traits.

As a result, there are huge confrontations done by the Indonesians (particularly students as Malaysian MEDIA reported that they were PAID to do so) and even rumors that Malaysians are being chased out of the country. In addition to that, Indonesia recently suffered massive earthquake that cost hundreds of lives and millions of dollars. And Malaysia sent volunteers flew in to help. and so rumor has it that the people in Padang actually threw stones at the volunteers.

Have they forgotten one question? - WE ARE ALL FROM THE SAME DESCENDANTS - the MALAY archipelago region.

Not to forget, the MEDIA who acts as the informer, the middle person... they are capable of feeding us false stories and that could add fuel to the fire. Media does not really play a part to help resolve our disputes. (Mind you, i just don't trust the media nowadays...)

The feud between Malaysia and Indonesia has yet reminded me of another feud.

Malaysia and Singapore.


Think about it.

for we hope of a better tomorrow...

Fire Stone

Back in high school, where most of us are still immature and of raging hormones, i used to pick up a lot of petty fights with friends. the littlest things are made a huge fuss and we ended up not speaking for days.

so i had a quarrel with my friend when i was sixteen. the matter was perhaps so small and insignificant because i have no memory what caused the quarrel in the first place. but i remembered being ridiculously annoyed and so was my friend towards me. instead of trying to resolve our differences (because we REFUSE to talk to each other), we confided into a middle person.

but the middle person fed us false stories that made the quarrel even worse. the person back stabbed me to my friend and the other around. and somehow, we found out that the middle person was not being fair in arbitrating the quarrel. instead, the person actually added fuel to the fire.

my friend and i managed to resolve our dispute in the end, without the help of the middle person.

so when i first vote for the 2008 election, the politics in Malaysia has somehow became what i went through in high school.

two parties with different views on a matter and is further provoked by a middle person -


let's hope for a better tomorrow...
