Communication Breakdown

Communication breakdown can be a big headache.

You’re expecting an email from your client, but the email never came. Have you lost the deal?

You’re expecting a sms message from your hubby, but the message never came. Has he reached office savely?

You’re expecting a call from your daughter from the public phone at school, but 10:00 am flies, is she alright at school?

You’re expecting a card on your birthday from a dearest friend, but the postman never came, is she not your best friend anymore?

Please, please, please.. never depend too much on communication. Remember these three words :


Always trust ALLAH for the best, as long as you keep requesting thru your DOA.

Always perform your responsibility with due respect and without asking for return.

Always have backup plans if your ordinary means of communication failed.
Let me think...A pigeon perhaps??

Pangkor Island

I heard in the news recently about Pangkor Island has lost its attraction. I've been there in two occasions. First time, with family, during school holiday and the second one on company trip, weekday/weekend.

As a beach lover, I love the island. Clean beach and well maintained, not too much development, friendly local, lovely seafood, good bargain for souvenirs, good bargains for chalets and hotels, what else...
View the lovely pics I took during my visit last year and recently.. Magnificent!

We have talent!

We always under estimate ourselves. We tell ourselves that we are not capable of doing things, we are not beautiful, and we don’t have the talent. Yes, we always say we are not talented. How many of us willing to speak in front of others or sing a song. We’ll say, ‘Nawww, I don’t have talent. I can’t sing. Suara I tak sedap. ‘ Another example, can you image yourself building a raft, and row to the ocean to fetch a bottle? You will definitely say that you can’t do it, you are afraid cause you don’t know how to swim, you don’t know how to tie a raft, you don’t know how to row and million other reasons, or shall I say, excuses!

We all have talent. It is just that we always like to hide it.

We always like to be down, and be reserved.

Why can’t we be just like this tree? Although alone in the world of green, it stood still at the root, contribute as part of the jungle, standing tall, free and pride.

Cause everybody has talent!

The Gift For You and Me

A good friend of mine called yesterday. She told me the sweetest news I’ve ever heard ever since I came back from Umrah. She is now pregnant after 6 years of marriage!

Allah’ gift is so great. I can feel the rahmat given to her, as if it is partly given to me. Thank you Allah, for giving such a happiness for her and me to share. Alhamdulillah…

Link it to the email I received recently, which reads as below:

Bila Allah cepat makbulkan doamu, Maka DIA menyayangimu,

Bila Allah lambat makbulkan doamu, Maka DIA ingin mengujimu,

Bila Allah tidak makbulkan doamu, Maka DIA merancang sesuatu yang lebih baik untukmu.

Oleh itu, sentiasalah bersangka baik pada ALLAH dalam apa jua keadaan pun...

Kerana kasih sayang ALLAH itu mendahului kemurkaannya…

To my dearest friend makwe, enjoy the feeling dear!
