Petua Untuk Rajin Bersolat

Jika anda ingin jadi orang yang rajin mengerjakan Solat, amalkanlah doa ini. Bacalah selalu Surah Ibrahim: Ayat 40

"Rabbij 'alnii muqiimaSSalaati wa min dzurriyyatii, Rabbana wataqabbal du'aa'."

Maksudnya: "Wahai Tuhanku! Jadikanlah daku orang yang mendirikan sembahyang dan demikianlah juga zuriat keturunanku. Wahai Tuhan kami, perkenankanlah doa permohonanku."

Surah Ibrahim: Ayat 40-43
[40] Wahai Tuhanku! Jadikanlah daku orang yang mendirikan sembahyang dan demikianlah juga zuriat keturunanku. Wahai Tuhan kami, perkenankanlah doa permohonanku.
[41] Wahai Tuhan kami! Berilah ampun bagiku dan bagi kedua ibu bapaku serta bagi orang-orang yang beriman, pada masa berlakunya hitungan amal dan pembalasan.
[42] Dan janganlah engkau (wahai Muhammad) menyangka Allah lalai akan apa yang dilakukan oleh orang-orang yang zalim; sesungguhnya Dia hanya melambatkan balasan mereka hingga ke suatu hari yang padanya terbeliak kaku pemandangan mereka, (kerana gerun gementar melihat keadaan yang berlaku).
[43] (Dalam pada itu) mereka terburu-buru (menyahut panggilan ke padang Mahsyar) sambil mendongakkan kepala mereka dengan mata tidak berkelip dan hati mereka tidak bersemangat (kerana bingung dan cemas).
p/s: M always struggling to discipline myself to fulfill this very important Rukun Islam. Hopefully, I'll get better with it in the future... Amiiin.

It's not just RM10...

I and family went to this Konsert Ria at i-City Shah Alam on Sunday. People said the place is beautiful at nights. So, I was feeling quite anxious to see it. Since we're bringing Zulaika with us, I've reminded mum to pack her stroller, so that I don't have to 'dukung' her all the time. Although, she likes to walk by herself, but at times when she's so tired and there's a lot of people, she'll got scared, and prefer that I carry her in my arms. So stroller is a compulsary equipment for an outdoor outings. While we were well equipped with the stuffs for Zulaika's comfort, we all forgot about ourself.

When we arrived, it was raining. And, we did not have any umbrella in the car. There were always a couple in the car previously. But, sometimes, I will drive my brother's car. So, those things had been moved to his car too. Luckily there was a shop there that sell umbrella. It was the first shop we went and they promote to us the only umbrella they have left on sale. It looks like a good umbrella and it was RM10. Don't want to be so picky, I just bought it.

The umbrella did serve us good in a couple of minutes under the soft raining condition. Not long after that, the rain had stopped and I closed the umbrella. However, not so long after that, it was raining again. Quite heavily this time. Mum tried to open the umbrella. But this time, the umbrella did not open as fully as it should. We both pull up, pull down and do all sorts of pulling and pushing to get that umbrella operated, but failed. We already far away from the shops and we don't have any roof-tops near to us either. We just stand under the umbrella and hold it from under to cover both of us. Feels like in 'Memori Daun Pisang' video clip ..But if I were happenned to be trapped under the rain like that with a boyfriend, maybe syokla jugak kan.. hehehe

While we were under the umbrella, I can't help but cursing that sales-person. What kind of person selling faulty product like that?? Don't even last for 1 hour??!!! Wasted my RM10 just like that...haiyah.. Luckily mum was present when I bought it. So I kind of had asked for permission and agreement to buy it. If not, I will surely kena with my mum..At that time, I had wished that, "OK, kau rugikan duit orang 10 hengget, hopefully nanti kau rugi 100 hengget!!"

OKla, cursing him like that is a little over-reacting la.. Plus RM1o is nothing really. But I just can't tolerate people who doing things for profit. I understand that not all products are perfect. But for a thing that can only lasted for a few minutes. It's just too much and so not acceptable.

Malang tak Berbau

I had one of the craziest weekends of my life. I never had went out and came back home at after 2am for 2 weekend nights in a row. At least this years la.. I'm not counting my clubbing years la kan.. hehehe..

I was karaoke-ing with Ayu and frens on Saturday nite at Au2 Jusco Song Box. I always called that place as 'karaoke jamban'..hehehe..To my surprise, they also have a large room that looks like any other karaoke room in Malaysia. So, they do have some posh jamban there. hahahah.. Although the sound system is a bit off, but the song selections, are not too bad. If I want to compare with the the ones I went at Wangsa Walk Mall, this place is much better. At least, I don't have a lot of "laa..lagu nih tak adela..." moment. Had so much fun that night. I sang A LOT!!!! From the latest songs to the jiwang karat songs.. Not just that, I screamed a lot too. All the guys can definitely sing. Was very impressed wih all of them singing all sorts of rock songs. Kalah Awie and Amy Search..:)

My highlight of the nite was definitely not the karaoke session. I don't know what to called this incident really. Since the place is near to Ayu's house, I decided to crash at her place first. We then, pool into a car (which is not my car) to Jusco. Being me, I would usually drive my own car there, since it will be easy for me to go back later. But I decided not to. Maybe because the distance is just so near, so I don't really care or maybe I was so excited to ride on Anem's n hubby's new Honda City car.. hahahah..Half way through the session, I just realised I don't have my mobile with me. I LEFT IT IN MY CAR!!! It's quite usual for me to left my mobile in my car, but not until later, I realise that leaving that lil thing in the car can cause me trouble later. Without my mobile, I don't really know and aware of time. Syok sgt menyanyi, I don't really care, although usually I care, especially if mum is at home alone. 12 midnite is my limit. My brother plak, happen to be at Rawang that weekends for her uncle's -in-law wedding.

They were adding more hours to the supposed original sessions and I just followed on. Not until when Anem n hubby were about to go back, it hit me that I need to go back too. It was already 1am and I can't afford to add in 1 more hour to go back. So I left my GF and the rest to continue and joined Anem. She gave me a lift to Ayu's place to get to my car. At the Jusco parking space, I already took out my car key from my handbag, as in doing the early preparationsla. So, when I got out from Anem's car, I don't have to rummage through the dark to find my key. So, once arrived in front of Ayu's place, I got out from the car and just walked to my car. Anem n hubby already left and I was looking for the key. Then, I realised that MY CAR KEY WAS NOT IN MY HANDS!!! I gelabah2 search for it in my handbag. OH NO!!! IT'S NOT IN THE HANDBAGS TOO!!! Then.. another OH NO!!!! MY HANDPHONE IS IN THE CAR!!! I can't call Anem to patah balik!!!! I was like SHIT! SHIT! SHIT! What have I done to myself?

OK. I told myself. Since Jusco is still near, I can go back there and asked Ayu to call Anem. Maybe she was not yet far away. So, I decided to walk back to Jusco. After just a few steps, I saw a taxi and it is available. Then, I just told myself. OKla, I should just go back home and use the spare key at home to pick up the car at Ayu's place in the morning and go pick the other key at Anem's place later later. Luckily, Ayu's place and mine is like sekangkang kera jer, so, it does not cost me that much. On my way back, I know that mum will surely freaked out, especially now I also don't have my house keys and obviously I need to wake her up to open the door.

When mum's open the door for me, she was like, "What happened? Where's your keys?" I told her what happened. She was, for the first time did not really say anything about it. Of course she had a few questions on the 'how come' part, but she did not flipped. Maybe a bit. But, not that bad. Since I'm like careless all the time. This kind of story did not really surprised her that much. When she asked, how am I going to pick up my car tomorrow.. I just easily answer, I'll use the spare key to pick it up tomorrow. It seems, my 'malang tak berbau' did not end there. What my mum said later, makes me gelabah again.

"Kunci spare tuh kat Ajimla.." my mum said. I was like OH NO!!! SHIT!! SHIT!! SHIT!! all over again. I obviously cannot asked him to come back home, since the wedding is tomorrow, which mum and I will be going. With that Myvi car. Which is now stranded in front of Ayu's house. My brother will surely be busy with all sorts of preparations. You knowla, kenduri kat kampung.. most of the stuffs are not outsource. I was also worried that Ayu will need to drive out to go somewhere tomorrow, since my car is blocking the way now. So many things on mind. Cursing myself is one thing. To think of how to settle it tommorow is another. My brain at that time was no longer working as efficiently as it should. So, I just told mum, I'll settle it tomorrow, and went straight to bed.

It was really crazy. If David Teo is reading this, he surely can make $8M box-office movie out of this.. hahahah.. I never thought that, that night will be such an eventful night for me. siiiigh... Malang memang sangat sangat tak berbau.

p/s: Thanks to Anem and hubby kerana sanggup bersusah payah tolong hantarkan kunci keta imah hari Ahad tuh.. jasamu sangat2 dikenang. To my sayang Ayu, thanks for the fun nite and parking space free for the night.. hehehe..

I feel that, lately I've been surrounded with problems and sadness. Not just my own. But others too.

Last week, we lost yet another significant male figure in the family. Allahyarham Zainal b. Mas'od, my late father, younger brother. He was the eldest uncle in our family after my father's death. And, he was just 50. This news is such a big blow to the family. In the span of 6 years, the family had lost its 3 leading man. And recently, one of my aunty had been diagnosed with a kidney failure as well. I really pity nyai, since she has to face all of her child's pain and deaths in front of her eyes. One of my aunty even mentioned that, she can't bear to go through anymore death in the family anymore. Yeah.. I can understand that.. Loss is just too painful..

Now, I'm seeing one more problem in front of me. And living with me as well. Once in a while. This problem come in a form of 3/4 years old girl. That's what the parents told us la.. Although I doubt so. Because I think she probably be already 5/6 years old. Doesn't matterla what her age is. Her father related to me while the mother is not. Plus, not Malaysian. You can guessla where her mother comes from. My mum had helped the parents to care for the child while the parents are working. I don't kow what the father is really doing but the mother is a factory-worker who do like 24hrs work-shifts and stay over at the factory-hostel. So, the child will stay with us like everyday until the parents come to pick her up at whenever time they feel convenient. Just imagine, how she was put under strangers house before for days and days. There's a lot of stories behind this la, on how the father left his former wife and 5 childrens (with 1 is an OKU) and also he had cut the connection between the other family as well. So, we have not known what had happened to him and his life with this new wife. Although we had the assumptions that the wife had used some 'guna-guna' to this girl's father, but it does not looked like, the wife is living the easy life too. With the kid's identity is still unknown, with the parents marriage certificate is in the blurr, (obviously the nikah was not performed under Jabatan Agama), the kid has no birth MyKid..her age is increasing and obviously will need an education at some point. I have no idea where the future of this child is. Wow..headachela.. I can't really handle this kind of drama in my life. It's just too messy and I don't think I want to be involved.

So, here, I'm just stating the major setbacks that are happening rite? Just imagine that I have a lot more on my plate to settle. My thoughts are keep on bombarding with all these issues. And this definitely is not doing good at all for my 'Law of Attraction' practice. That's why sometimes, it feels good to be out from home and work and have good time with friends. It definitely feels good to be out from problems once in awhile :)

Law of Attraction

Continuation from the seminar I went last Saturday.. I was drawn into this 'Law of Attraction' concept. I can't really explain about the quantum physics side of it and how this relate to the universe and gravity and how our thoughts can meet each other and stuffs. But a few highlights that I can point in here...

"Birds of a feather flock together"
Law of attraction states that like attracts like. "Whatever you want, wants you"

"you can change your life because you can change the way you think"
The Law of Attraction simply says that, everything you have in life, you attracted to yourself because of the way you think.

“If you do not attract what you want to be, you will be what you are, FOREVER”
– Ankur Sancheti

"your thoughts are extremely powerful"
Thoughts are a form of mental energy that travel at the speed of light. They are so fine that they can go through any barriers. This is why, for example, you can think about a person, sometimes at a great distance, and in the next moment, he phone will ring and that person will be on the line. Your thoughts have connected with that person the moment you thought of them.

"Believe the genie in you"
Sometimes, we can hear people complain about their hardship. "Why bad things always happenned to me?" "Why I can't get the job that can give me 1 year bonus?" "Why I always got short of cash?".Law of attraction does not distinguish between what is good or what is not. The genie in you would answer, “You attracted it, so, you are given”, “Your wish is my command”. In fact, the worse your life might seem, the higher the probability that the genie is working hard of fullfilling your every fear (emotion), thought (expectation) and insight. Thus, we need to always check on our thoughts and attractions, what we attract should be in sync with what we want.

I believe that Law of attraction can be applied in every path of our life (be it attracting a dream life, to attract wealth, money or abundance, to attract a dream job, to find a perfect soul mate, to make a better relationship, in nutshell to get what you badly want). Unconciously, I already applied law of attraction in most of the path of my life, both the positive (what I want) and negative (what I do not want) side of it. Since, I'm more aware of it now, I should, from now on to start visualise on the things that I WANT ONLY and attract those that I want, so it can be true one day. Insya Allah....

I Dreamed a Dream

I went to a seminar yesterday. The topics were mostly inpirational and motivational stuffs. The 'Yes-You-Can!!' type, if you know what I mean. One of the things that really get to me that day was when the speaker showed the video of Susan Boyle when she was auditioning for the Britain's Got Talent show. I watched some of her youtubes before but not this one. I really got the chill when she sang in that audition. I almost cried my heart out watching it. It was just so inspirational. It is a perfect example of 'never judge a book by its cover'. I learned that, one, you can find inspirations from unexpected source. It's not always that skinny - peferct skin - super intelligent woman can inspire you to be confident. Two, it's never too late to chase your dream. If you belive in yourself, the ability and the talent that you have, when the opportunity presented in front of you, you should grab it. Three, I should never make fun of other people's dream and goals. We can always say to people dearest to us, saying that his/her dream is ridiculous.. like "Jangan nak berangan la...", "Cermin diri tu dulu" and so on and so on. Like thinking, only people who were smart in school can be successful and millionaires. Girls who are beautiful and hot can get a rich and good looking husband. How that can be so wrong at times..

I'm a Victim?

I was actually trying to psycho-analyse myself. I don't know... living in this difficult world and era.. people are living in desperations and are willing to do everything and anything to survive. I always feel like I'm being used all the time. Sometimes, I don't mind being used because what I did was just an act of kindness or respect to that person(s). But, there definitely time when I feel very uncomfortable and doubting the motives of other people's towards me. I start question myself. Am I the victim of many manipulators in this world?

I, like most of people who does not have any formal knowledge on something, turn to Wikipedia to help me get the answers. hahaha.. Okla kan.. I can't afford psychiatrist ma...

According to Braiker as quoted in the Wikipedia, manipulators exploit the following vulnerabilities (buttons) that may exist in victims:
1. the "disease to please" - I think I have this 'disease'. At least my mum dah puas manipulated me on a lot of things since I like it so much to please her.. :p
2. addiction to earning the approval and acceptance of others - Not so much on this. I'm not a person who cares so much whether ppl 'approve' me or like me or otherwise. If they don't.. too bad la kan..
3. Emotophobia (fear of negative emotion) - Shit! This's such a big words. Some Wiki page is exist to further explain this to me. hmm.. fear of negative emotion? I pass..
4. lack of assertiveness and ability to say no - yeah.. I have a little of this other disease as well. I'm a 'YES' woman. Anything can one. People ask this and that.. I gerenti can do one.. But only to certain things la kan.. Good manipulators will know my weak spot and I will not be able to say 'No'.. huhuhu.. this one is scaryla..
5. blurry sense of identity (with soft personal boundaries) - I laugh of to this one coz a lot of people said that I'm blur.. hahaha.. not sure if my blur is related to this blurry sense...whatever.
6. low self-reliance - hmm.. I'm quite independent really. I don't think I rely on other people so much.
7. external locus of control - external 'locus' means that the person believe that their environment, some higher power, or other people control their decisions and their life. This is quite tricky. . I'm thinking harder about this 1. I feel like what I choose to do in life basically are what I want. But, if what I want is actually already been controlled by other people, let say my parents, then I can't really 100% believe that I control my own decisions and life?

Am I the favourite victims of the manipulators out there? I don't know.. What do u think?

5 Months Recap

Wow!!! It's been awhile.. (I'm not too sure if 5 months can consider as awhile though).. So much stuffs that I had missed to share in here.. one probably my trip to KK.. had so much fun.. Ate a lot!!!! Got to see the magnificent Mount Kinabalu.. Once there, I feel like, I one day, want to climb it.. Need to get my stamina in place first.. huhuhu.. and partner(s) to climb with too..

Some of you may already know about this.. that my mum moved out from our house in Wangsa Maju to live with Opah at Bkt Sentosa in July.. live in separation with Zulaika was really tough.. I almost broke to tears everytime saying goodbye to her on Sunday.. So sad to see her crying and wanting to follow me back to KL.. Not only that, I also thought that life would be super-jolly not living under the same roof as mum, but it was not so much the case.. I was too complacent with mum around in the house doing all the dirty laundry and housekeeping and cooking etc etc.. To get myself to do-everything-yourself routines were super tough.. I was so kind to give mum my car.. well, for groceries shopping and stuffs.. Thus, I was relying on public transport to go to work and anywhere!!! what i can say is.. KL public transportation system is SUX!!!! Big time! Particularly the bus and komuter.. I just can't remember how many hours I had wasted on just waiting.. well..

2 weeks before Hari Raya, I decided to stay at Bkt Sentosa to support my mum caring for Opah - with Opah was not at her usual strength, and Zulaika with her 'ragam', an additional little cousin who my mum 'accidentally' baby-sit.. plus it was still Ramadhan month and most of the aunties will only come near to Hari Raya.. so, my mum was really in need for an extra hands.. So much chaos.. Lots of family drama.. I can't believe that the few weeks I stayed there were the last few weeks of Opah as well.. Yes, she's old. But she's healthy. I did not expect that her time has come.. Although I did had my share of tension-breakdown staying with her, I felt so blessed that I had the opportunity to care for her during those last moments.. Experience that I will cherish forever..

Now, life is back to normal.. Everybody are now back in Wangsa Maju and that's why, I can have the time to actually do this.. hehehe..

Train Story

Since it's a wedding season and everybody from my age and younger are getting married, the subject of my marital status, popped up as the main topic of discussion again. Just when I think I'm off the hook, the wedding season is coming..siiiiiiigh.

My mum thinks I missed my train already. And I can't blame anyone but myself that I decided not to take the earlier train(s), given the fact that she's aware of a number of trains that had passed by. She knows that some had made the stop. She also knows that, not only I refused to get on those train(s), I would make myself as far as possible from any train station if I know the fact that the train(s) had made and will make the stop for me. Made myself unavailable..sort of. hahahah..

What can I do... At that time, the ones that stopped were LRT-type train, i.e. guys with 'ready to get married now' status But, I prefer, KTM Senandung Malam train instead, i.e. guys 'not ready to get married yet' status. So, I can't really blame myself of not ready to take the LRT train. They're just too fast for me that they scared the hell out of me. But now, it's a different story la kan..hehehe.. I would be crazy to still prefer KTM Senandung Malam.. hahahah..

p/s: It took me 8hrs to get to JB by train!!! Mmg giler!!! Tak taula bila Malaysia nak capai tahap ader keretapi laju ke negeri2 di Malaysia.. huhuhu

As open minded as I am. I'm totally in the 'No sex before marriage' team. Not even a person as hot as Brad Pitt can tempt or seduce me to cross over. perrrgh.. Easy for me to say la kan. Since nobody in that hotness level had ever tried on me any way.. hehehe..

There were people (mostly guys who want to get into my pants la kan..), who will debate about my choice about this matter. Their argument is that I won't do it (the sex before marriage) because of the religion. And, if I'm not Muslim, I would do it. See.. how guys can manipulate your mind and make you surrender? If they can't seduce you.. they will argue with you.. huhuhu.. What I can say.. it's not easy to resist temptations, I tell you.. But, there reasons why I still survive.. SO FAR.. hehehe..

Of course, the top reason of it is religion. I've done a lot of the 'small' sins (dosa kecik) myself, which if accumulate them all, can considered as 'big'..huhuhu.. So, I definitely don't want to touch the 'big' sins category. Apart of that, I always think of consequences in any of my actions. What good things I can get out of it? Thinking about it, I say, I would probably get nothing more than the pleasure of the moment. Whereas if I join the opposite team, I would put myself in jeopardy of degrading myself.. getting myself pregnant accidentally.. and in the most unlucky situation, I may get AIDS.. plus, if anything happenned, my parents, my family would get the shame.. Even if I put the religion factor aside, thinking of all the wrong possibilities that can happen, turn me off completely. Even the thickest condom in the world can't throw that thoughts away.

That's why, I don't understand why many young girls out there would dare to put themself in jeopardy of all that consequences.. Maybe they just being a total idiot or lust get the better of them. Who knows eh?

My bigger concern now however, not about the decreasing number of virgin girls (especially amongst Muslim/Malay girls). I don't think I care enough if they are virgin or not. They big enough to think what's right and what's wrong. Doing it (the sex), itself shows that they are already an adult. Although they might not have a brain like one.. But, I am concern about the increasing number of babies being thrown away to death. Really sad to watch the news and see all the horrifying pictures in the newspaper. How can a person do such cruel thing? What's the point of going through the 9 months pregnancy period, then 'murder' it? It just didn't make sense at all. Stupid right?

I understand, in this situation, we can get scared and panic. That would be what I'll feel. However, they would have more than sufficient time to really think about what they want to do. About the baby and themself. At least 7 months to really think and make a decision. Put you baby in rubbish dump or flush it in toilet should not be the options. Don't be afraid to go to the families/ parents. If not, they are organisations that can help and assist. Berani buat berani tanggungla kan..

What goes around, comes around eh? I don't know if I really believe in Karma. But, sometimes, fate does happen in that way. Buat baik dibalas baik..buat jahat dibalas buruk, katanya..

I feel like I've been unkind to a lot of people (guys) in the past. Maybe unconciously done. I may have break the hearts of many. Some may be forgiven and let the past be bygones. But perhaps, they are a few who had cursed me and I'm not out of it yet. Like Mahsuri with her 'padang jarak padang terkukur selama 7 keturunan'.. huhuhu.. matila if I'm cursed until 7 keturunan..

I'm always been labelled by this lot of people as sombong, jual mahal, takde parasaan etc etc. I always like to deny it, because I think I am not. But, since lots of this words had been thrown to my face, I start to doubt myself. To my defense, sometimes, I'm cold towards certain guys because I don't want to hurt their feelings or give them false hope. In some cases, I did still hurt their feelings and sort of offended them. "Ala.. poyolah imah tu. Macamla aku nak kat dia sangat" attitude.

So, I was thinking.. maybe I repelled guys so much. Now, guys are repelling me?

My Top 10 Love/Romantic Movies

This post was meant for Valentine's Day theme..obviously I'm way behind schedule..hehehe.. Apparently, I have so much time thinking of the Top 10 list of my favourite Love/Romance/Chick Flick Movies when what I should be doing is.. list out my Top 10 potential Valentine date?

10. Titanic
This film is just a must have in anyone favourite love movies-Top 10 list regardless of whether they really like this movie or not. It's a typical "antara 2 darjat" love story really..Only that, Leonardo is still cute and you can see Kate Winslet naked (you can practically see her naked in most of her films anyway but still...with that huge blue diamond necklace, it's just soo different and special.. :p) However, I love tragic. Happily ever after love story is just lame and 'yucky' at times. So, watching a sad-ending movie once in awhile can be refreshing..

9. You've Got Mail
I love Meg Ryan!! She's definitely 1 of the queen of romantic movies of all time. Sleapless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, Addicted to Love, French Kiss.. I love them all!! It's just that I love this 1 more.. The cyber-virtual relationship thingy does it for me I guess..

8. Never Been Kissed

I read the novel first and loved it. I can relate to the story at that time with me never been kissed..waiting for the right guy..and the perfect kiss and all..hehehe.. When I got to know that a film was made based on this novel, I was so anxious to watch it. Since the movie is included in my Top 10 list, it means I love the movie too.

7. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
This is definitely my favourite Hindi movie. I love classic Indian settings. I like the chemistry between Salman and Aishu in the 1st part of the film.. Salman is in his goofy-foolish self who falls for a beautiful-naive Aishu. When you think that they will end up together until the end of the film, then bammm! Aishu is marrying Ajay Devgan plak. I set my mind to hate this Ajay character as the penyibuk in the story but nooo.. Sanjay Leela Bhansali chose to make his character as angelic as possible...go bring his wife Aishu all the way to Italy to unite her with her true love, katanya... but only for Aishu to really realise who her true love is at the end of the story.. I definitely had cried a river over this movie.. hehehe

6. Jerry Maguire
"You complete me"
When at almost an entire movie you think that this Jerry Maguire guy is a moron and a jerk.. he said this 3 lil words that practically change everything. Who won't fall for that huh? especially when a guy as cute and charming as Tom Cruise appear in your living room and confess that 3 magic words in front of your close friends and family?

5. He's Not That Into You
It's either Love Actually or this movie. I like this kind of movie whereas the story not just revolve around the leading man and woman. So, you would have the romantic couple, the funny ones, the break-ups ones, the sexy one.. all in a movie. The ensemble cast are great as well. The movie is about modern day relationships and how men and women often misconstrue the intentions of the opposite sex which I and a lot of people out there can relate to the story in this movie. The movie sort of self-acclaim that they are not 1 of those cliche chick flick film.. and I definitely agree.

4. A Walk to Remember
I admire any woman character who can influence a guy to be a better man..better person. It's such an accomplishment to be a reason behind any man's success or good life. Same as Never Been Kissed, I've read the novel before the movie came out. Since I loved the novel so much, and Landon Carter is just sooo sweet, this movie made it to my Top 10 list. I loved the soundtrack as well.

3. Memoirs of Geisha
You can do and be willing to do anything to be with the person you love. I can't imagine myself, falling in love with someone that obviously out of my league and do everything that I can so that I can be closer to him.. to get his attention and to be worthy of him. At times in the movie, I do feel like, "whyla this girl need to go through all those hassle just for a guy".. but I guess that's what makes it romantic. Sometimes it's not just guys who do all the efforts right?

2. Stardust
This movie story a journey of a boy (who then becomes a man) in a pursuit of a fallen star, to prove his love for a village beauty. Whose on earth would do that kann?? At first you may think it is ridiculous.. it is stupid and naive ("she just saying that to blew you off, honey.."). But, put all the magical nonsense apart.. his intentions and actions are 'meltingly' sweet.. and totally romantic.

1. Pride and Prejudice
I'm a sucker when it comes to vintage romance stuffs.. especially the British ones.. The falling in love part..the dating part.. the meet up part.. the proposal.. all look so in etique.. very gentleman-ish.. All this elements are very evident in the movie which I like. Apart from that, like other adaptation films, I like the movie because I like the story, i.e the novel and the characters.

This is my first 2010 blog entry?? After half-way of February?? huhuhu.. I actually have a lot of things that I experienced last month which I would like to share and write about.. So, the next few new entries would be dedicated to those stories.

However, I do have a blog post draft on the issue of "Allah" being used by non-Muslim... I don't know what had happenned there that the writing got stuck half-way.. My lack of knowledge makes me feel that I don't have the right to express what I feel in this matter. In 1 thought, I would think that "what's the big deal?". In my other thought, my mind telling me that "Allah is the name of God (Tuhan) which I and all Muslims worship. Does the non-Muslim worship the same God that I do? If they are not (which I believe they are not), then why use Allah?".

Whatever confusion this issue had over me, whether it's wrong or right to allow non-Muslim to use "Allah"..the only thing that I certainly know is right...with my believe as a Muslim, God=Tuhan=Allah.
