Karnival Karangkraf 2011



Salam sejahtera diucapkan.....

Mungkin cuti ini permulaan untuk mengisi masa dengan aktiviti berfaedah dan memberi kebaikan....

kebetulan hari ini ada Karnival Karangkraf 2011 di Kompleks Media Karangkraf, Seksyen 15 Shah Alam.....memang menarik dan memberi peluang kepada orang ramai untuk bersua dengan penulis majalah, buku dan banyak lagi...

dan, Alhamdulillah, kamek diberi kesempatan untuk bertemu dengan penulis buku thriller no.1 di Malaysia...Ramlee Awang Murshid....memang saat yang indah bersama beliau,...kamek sempat beli 2 novel beliau dan kedua-duanya ada autograph beliau jugak....salah satu buku kamek hadiahkan untuk ibu kamek......




selain itu, sempat jugak bersemuka dengan penulis lain seperti Dr H.M Tuah Iskandar, penulis buku lain( kamek sik ingat sapa, tapi tangga mukanya kt buku, alu terus mintak gambar....haha)






syukur, dengan diskaun yang menarik, sempat jugak la membeli beberapa buku lain...antaranya buku tentang kisah Rasulullah (sempena Mahabbatur Rasul) dan buku motivasi daripada Ustaz Pahrol Mohf Juoi.........

insyaAllah, buku yang dibeli akan dimanfaatkan sebagai bahan bacaan dikala bosan, sebagai peneman dikala sibuk, dan sebagai kawan dikala sunyi.........sekian



wallahualam...

Holiday, people...?

Salam and greetings again......
hmm, me will be staying in cemara for the holidays..........not feeling sad, but feeling afraid of nothing to do next week......insyaAllah, i'll be focusing on my studies...........trials is getting closer and we must prepare enough for the exams.

Hmm, speaking of exam, the latest issue of Solusi has a column on exam tips....worth reading as it offers tips from the Islamic perspective (instead of typical motivational tips from nowadays books).....

and i'll be planning a post on ethics...somthing about work and professionalism....still on research currently...

lastly, what does holiday mean to you?


a) time to relax and enjoy?
b) time to reunite with families and friends?
c) time to study and revision?
d) time to do your missing routines (games, sleep, binge)...?
e) time to reconcile your relationship with Allah...?

it can be anything.......up to you to decide......

wallahualam...

The book of Eli: agrees and disagrees....

Salam and greetings again.....
Yesterday was a ver y busy day as I created a new history in my life, donating about 450 ml of my blood in the name of humanity....and I feel that I need to donate more blood next time (because it's fun!!!)......just kidding...

Back to cemara, I did some experiment where if you donate blood, you are recommended not to involve in activities; have a rest instead. So, i bought a 100 plus drink and some cupcakes as my energy supply for me to play futsal that afternoon......guess what, the effect was me being tired the whole night........so, my experiment show a negative results......huhu

I decided to watch some movies with my roommate (my cinema is my laptop) just to keep me from doing nothing. and there you go, the movie which was 'The book of Eli'




the movie was 2 hours long....full of weird plots and also some stunning CGIs. Very well designed.haha
One thing I realised was downloaded movies have a moderate satisfaction to the viewers as the file have some problems adjusting the sound with the computer's settings and many more. However, that did not stop me and my roommate from watching the entire story.....

back to the main topic....my agrees and disagree with the film.....( from a Muslim perspective too)

Agree (I don't meant to agree, but I just like the way they do it)

1. The world need a religion to live prosper and ensure survival
2. we must keep in faith to Allah in whatever we done.......
3. Responsibility comes with great sufferings........watch the movie and you will understand

Disagree
1. the actions were too gore and extreme; not suitable for young children (for sure....)
2. the way the world is destroyed: theres a dialog in the movie saying the sun come done and ruined everything (my assumption was a meteor.....). true enough, but not for long as you still can see some "still-standing" houses and so-on.......hmm, what kind of meteor could possibly do that?

3. come to know that Beats by Dr.Dre earphone was used in the film......advertising purposes,right?...good strategy...... (but why I'm disagree with this? ....no idea why...)
4. the film did not mentioned any plots on how did the world turned into that kind of place, why all the people wore sunglasses....and where has all the money gone?...is there a war or something?......huh...........



well, as I said, i want to say something from the Muslim perspective (i think it will be more comfortable if i write this in Malay...)

Setelah mengamati filem tersebut, terdapat banyak sentimen dan sindiran kepada umat Islam......

1. Mengenai plot filem yang mengisahkan seorang lelaki yang sedang cuba menyelamatkan Bible yang terakhir daripada dimusnahkan. Dan dalam filem itu juga memaparkan masyarakat yang tidak mempunyai agama...amat sedih dan pilu melihat mereka kembali kepada keadaan jahiliyah...cuba fikir balik, adakah ini bermakna Al-Quran tidak diselamatkan, atau hilang dalam cerita itu....pada akhir filem mempunyai satu babak yang memaparkan lelaki meletakkan bible sebelah Al-Quran....seolah-olah mengejak umat Islam yang mereka telah berusaha menyelamatkan tamadun dunia daripada musnah....hmm, dimana umat Islam yang lain....adakah Al-Quran itu naskhah yang terakhir dalam dunia itu?...amat marah dan sedih melihat filem ini...........

video



2. Hidup yang tidak tenteram tanpa agama......pernah terbaca dalam peristiwa-peristiwa sebelum kiamat dimana roh orang beriman dibawa pergi oleh angin dan tinggallah orang kafir dan tidak beriman di dunia....mungkin inikah yang filem ini cuba gambarkan...dan menggunakan bible sebagai motif cerita ini untuk menyelamatkan manusia.....pada pandangan kamek, sudah tiada sesalan ketika itu kerana mereka tetap dalam golongan yang tidak beriman....

3. pengorbanan lelaki bernama Eli dalam melindungi buku tersebut; kamek mencontohi semangat Eli dalam menjaga, melindungi, menghafal dan mengamalkan apa yang dalam bible tersebut.....cuba kita pula buat filem ini dengan menggambarkan semangat orang Islam dalam mempertahankan Al-Quran.....bukankah kita seharusnya menjaga Al-Quran, melindungi kesuciannya, menghafal ayat-ayat suci yang terkandung, dan mengamalkan ajaran Al-Quran dalam kehidupan seharian.....satu lagi sindiran buat umat Islam,.......

4. akhir sekali, kehidupan jahiliyah yang dipaparkan dalam filem......bayangkan umat Islam tanpa pegangan yang kuat, ditambah pula dengan perasaan nafsu dan amarah yang melampau...dan tidak mengamalkan Al-Quran.......dan cuba bayangkan apabile Al-Quran tiada di muka bumi........manusia berebut mencari buku yang dikatakan memberi kuasa dan pengaruh......(dalam filem ini, ada babak yang memaparkan lelaki yang membawa bungkusan penuh dengan buku seperti kamus oxford , da vinci code dan macam2..., tetapi semua buku itu tidak memberi kepuasan kepada ketua bandar tersebut, kerana dia menginginkan sebuah buku yang amat berkuasa, dalam filem ini, buku itu adalah Bible)....

5. kuasa yang cuba digambarkan apabila manusia percaya akan bible....dalam filem ini, Eli memang seorang yang kuat, kebal, hebat bersenjata bila memiliki buku tersebut....cuba renung balik...filem ini 'sengaja' memeberi kita sedikit gambaran bahawa Bible itu mempunyai kuasa.....hmm, terpulanglah kepada sesiapa yang ingin percaya....kerana tujan post ini bukan untuk menghina, tetapi memberi peringatan kepada umat Islam.........

well, think again........

and i like this quote...from Eli ..." when you walk (ni tambah sendiri), walk with faith, not with mind".........ada benda tersirat di situ...sekian, wallahualam,.....

Experiment unit 6

Haha, its my first post for this year....better start with a new target because I will having my A level trials and also final exam in the upcoming months.

Well, instead of being glued to books, I need to complete the Biology Individual Investigation for Unit 6. The marks will contribute about 10 percent (cannot remember) to the total final marks. So far, the experiment works with my spinach seedling had started to grow, and I am expecting more seedlings to grow so that my experiment can continue without any delay.

The experiment? Is to investigate the optimum concentration of Potassium in yielding the maximum growth of Spinach. Sounds cool, isn't it?

As usual, there are many apparatus and materials, even a long procedure that need a lot of precautions to be considered, and we need to finish it by end of April this year.


Hmm, more events this january......

next week tuesday: PMC interview..........hopefully my dreams will come true, InsyaAllah.....
19 January: Blood donation in INTEC.........will ask my parents if they allow me to donate this "royal" blood.....hihi
rest of january: nothing else, just study!!!! and futsal


and also live as a good Muslim (until the end of my life)...........
