    Monday, October 17, 2011

    Whining and complaining about your life will not make your life better, but why are you still complaining? You have a lot of things that others don’t have yet you complain. Wake up Azara Nur!

  2. Tapir and his usual self

    Wednesday, October 5, 2011

    The thing about Tapir is that he hates being alone. Really hates it! So one day we came back from work, both of us went straight to each other's PC. Didnt mean to ignore him it's just that he wants us to come to him instead of him coming to us, well that's just too bad!

    Anyway, this video is really funny! caught him talking and eating at the same time. This is not something new though, it's just so happen i had the camera around me then so i just put it on the floor and leave it there. Because i know as soon as i leave him alone with the food he'll start complaining... ahahaha

    Enjoy the video!

  3. Inspirational speech

    Monday, September 19, 2011

    This is an old video i watched years back.


    Hello, I’m Severn Suzuki speaking for E.C.O. – The Environmental Children’s Organisation.

    We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds from Canada trying to make a difference:
    Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg and me. We raised all the money ourselves to come six thousand miles to tell you adults you must change your ways. Coming here today, I have no hidden agenda. I am fighting for my future.

    Losing my future is not like losing an election or a few points on the stock market. I am here to speak for all generations to come.

    I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheard.

    I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go. We cannot afford to be not heard.

    I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in the ozone. I am afraid to breathe the air because I don’t know what chemicals are in it.

    I used to go fishing in Vancouver with my dad until just a few years ago we found the fish full of cancers. And now we hear about animals and plants going exinct every day — vanishing forever.

    In my life, I have dreamt of seeing the great herds of wild animals, jungles and rainforests full of birds and butterfilies, but now I wonder if they will even exist for my children to see.

    Did you have to worry about these little things when you were my age?

    All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want and all the solutions. I’m only a child and I don’t have all the solutions, but I want you to realise, neither do you!

    * You don’t know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer.
    * You don’t know how to bring salmon back up a dead stream.
    * You don’t know how to bring back an animal now extinct.
    * And you can’t bring back forests that once grew where there is now desert.

    If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it!

    Here, you may be delegates of your governments, business people, organisers, reporters or poiticians – but really you are mothers and fathers, brothers and sister, aunts and uncles – and all of you are somebody’s child.

    I’m only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, 30 million species strong and we all share the same air, water and soil — borders and governments will never change that.

    I’m only a child yet I know we are all in this together and should act as one single world towards one single goal.

    In my anger, I am not blind, and in my fear, I am not afraid to tell the world how I feel.

    In my country, we make so much waste, we buy and throw away, buy and throw away, and yet northern countries will not share with the needy. Even when we have more than enough, we are afraid to lose some of our wealth, afraid to share.

    In Canada, we live the privileged life, with plenty of food, water and shelter — we have watches, bicycles, computers and television sets.

    Two days ago here in Brazil, we were shocked when we spent some time with some children living on the streets. And this is what one child told us: “I wish I was rich and if I were, I would give all the street children food, clothes, medicine, shelter and love and affection.”

    If a child on the street who has nothing, is willing to share, why are we who have everyting still so greedy?

    I can’t stop thinking that these children are my age, that it makes a tremendous difference where you are born, that I could be one of those children living in the Favellas of Rio; I could be a child starving in Somalia; a victim of war in the Middle East or a beggar in India.

    I’m only a child yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on ending poverty and finding environmental answers, what a wonderful place this earth would be!

    At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us to behave in the world. You teach us:

    * not to fight with others,
    * to work things out,
    * to respect others,
    * to clean up our mess,
    * not to hurt other creatures
    * to share – not be greedy.

    Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do?

    Do not forget why you’re attending these conferences, who you’re doing this for — we are your own children. You are deciding what kind of world we will grow up in. Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying “everyting’s going to be alright” , “we’re doing the best we can” and “it’s not the end of the world”.

    But I don’t think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities? My father always says “You are what you do, not what you say.”

    Well, what you do makes me cry at night. You grown ups say you love us. I challenge you, please make your actions reflect your words. Thank you for listening.

    This speech was given at the UN Earth Summit that took place in Rio de Janeiro 1992. After almost 20 years. Our world is still the same!

    Look what happen to this seal

    This is the man who's responsible for the cruelty. He was sent to jail for two years for willfully ill-treating 23 seals by clubbing them to death with a pipe near Kaikoura on November 26.

  4. Hold my hand

    Tuesday, September 13, 2011

    When we do something, there’s no need justification to why we did it. I think the more you say the more people will try to prove you wrong. I learn it the hard way.

    People LOVE passing judgment, that’s human!

    I read newspaper everyday, and what I hate about reading them is this uneasy, discontented feeling you get reading about how unkind human can be. Sometimes you wonder what’s going on in their head that they did what they did; Rape, manslaughter, stabbing and injuring woman, snatching people’s handbags, recent acid splashing and cruelty.

    Should we blame the parents or the government? Or is it our fault as a community? If I am to reason every crime committed, I bet I’ll be in a mental house! I think what we should is not ponder on the why but instead we should start thinking about how we can help reduce the crime.

    I think the most we can do is either voice out our concern to the media and help in any kind we can. But we cannot take justice into our hands.

    I think the two ‘boys’ who went into hiding are scared. I am not sure if they have repent their sin or not but they are being immature. They should face the public and apologize because what they did is unforgivable to some, as we’ve read cats lovers’ respond on their apologies on facebook.

    I think people want to see them crying and pleading publicly, maybe if we hear the ‘sad stories’ coming out of their mouth we’ll be more forgiving? Even then if we still cannot forgive them, what more should they do to make you forgive?

    I think it’s just a sad case of not wanting to forgive, EVER!

    This is a case of abandoning pets to death. Is it so much different from committing the crime with your bare hands? Should we start defining cruelty? Cruel, not so cruel not cruel… Any act of cruelty is cruel. It’s the same like forgiving. You cannot be selective in forgiving.

    I couldn’t imagine myself in a state of belief where we choose who to forgive or what types of crime to forgive.

    It’s the same thing as voicing out your opinion, we are finicky when it comes to what should or shouldn’t been said publicly.

    Justification to why we forgive, why we don’t want to forgive, why we do this etc are just too dreary.

    Bottom line. Somebody commit a crime, we forgive or we don’t. It’s as simple as that.

    It’s also the same thing like asking people to care about animal cruelty, asking people to start voicing out on behalf of these voiceless animals.

    It’s very hard to convince people to forgive, like it is asking people to care.

    Look what happen now after the government launch of No Plastic Bags on Saturday? We still see majority of people asking for plastic bags. Same goes to anti-smoking programmes.

    It’s hard, people refuse to listen.

    You want people to care, but you don’t want to forgive. It works both ways. God almighty is watching, we should do all we can to improve ourselves. We shouldn’t stop learning, learning to care about living creature, learning to be more forgiving.

  5. Dissapointment

    Thursday, September 8, 2011

    You care, you read.
    You see something is wrong.
    You stop reading. But you still care...
    You just don't want to face the negativity surrounding the issue you care.

    But you still want justice, you still want to read...
    But you don't want to get hurt.

    So, what should you do?

    Don't care?

    I'm tired and I'm sad. I care too much it hurts.

  6. Petknode Fiasco

    Wednesday, September 7, 2011

    I urge everyone to stop sending negative, bad, snide remarks to Petknode Cat Boarding. No I am not their accomplice, staff nor family member. I am just a fellow Muslim and Human being, who is also a cat lover and have about 30 cats. Have conscience and compassion, we are born flawed and fallible. God made us that way so we have some sense of humility. Both the owners had shown some sign of remorse by issuing an apology; it’s enough for me because that shows they are still human. Whatever we do or say will not bring back the dead nor return health to all other cats that were ill-treated. What we should all do now is move forward, stop pointing finger here and there, instead ask yourself, what can you do to help stray or feral cats? Do you adopt a stray cat or buy one? If you point your finger at someone, REMEMBER there are 3 more pointing at you!

    Let us all be Kind and Forgiving.

    Happy Eid!

    I post this message on my FB and i tagged Petknode Cat Boarding. I guess it was a mistake on my part for believing that humans are capable of showing compassion. Well yeah i know it's hard. No one is saying it's easy but at least u should show respect to people who are trying to look things from a different perspective.

    I'm not a bandwagonist, i dont go with the flow. I refuse to be in the crowd filled with anger and hatred. To be negative and stay that way is easier, hands down! We are define by the choices we made so i choose to stay positive. =D

    I felt sorry to people who fail to see the bigger picture

    The SECRET (Law of Attraction)


    Mother Teresa was brilliant. She said, "I will never attend an anti

    war rally. If you have a peace rally, invite me." She knew. She

    understood The Secret. what she manifested in the world.


    So if you’re anti-war, be pro-peace instead. If you’re anti-hunger,

    be pro-people having more than enough to eat. If you are anti-a

    particular politician, be pro-his opponent. Often elections are

    tipped in favor of the person that the people are really against,

    because he’s getting all the energy and all the focus.

  8. Weekend plan

    Friday, June 10, 2011

    It's almost noon. I am so excited about going back Melaka. I miss my babies so much, it's unbearable. I really hope we'll be moving out to a bigger house soon, definitely not another apartment! i want a landed property. I don't care how much it'll cost as long as i'll be reunited with my children.

    But i'll be staying for only a day as ikmal's grandmother not feeling well, so i thought of spending saturday night at his parents' place. Keep his grandmother company.

    I seems to have luck on my side. I've been lucky in so many things. I am grateful to Allah for His Blessings. I hope it continues. Amin.

  9. It's not over

    Saturday, May 21, 2011

    So... Bye bye Masterchef. My husband went to it's audition in KDU. To be honest, I am disappointed with their way of judging. I mean this is a cooking show but the final say for the first audition rest in the hand of the personality judges.

    If a person can sell his cooking but fail to 'sell' himself then he fail to proceed to the next stage.

    Well. That's just sucks. All three chef judges gave such approving comments about his cooking. especially about his home-made pasta, which to me is perfect. The chefs even anticipated to see him again for the cook-off where supposedly if he passed the first audition, he needs to cook the same dish in front of the judges within an hour.

    imagine his horror when after all these compliments, all the excitement he faced in the first audition room were crushed when the second room judges (which we guessed were consist of people from Astro) rejected him. Two of them said no, without even glancing at his dish. The only judge who said yes is the only one tasted his dish.

    It's really really hard to digest all these, you cant understand what it feels like rejected boldly after all these while I had been watching him cook passionately everyday, listening to him talk about food any chance he got and most of all dreaming together of all the wonderfull things he will be able to learn from the chef judges if he's in the programme.

    Do you how expensive it is to enroll in a professional cooking class?

    Well, but that's that. I actually persuaded him to email them asking whether the cook off invitation on Sunday by the chefs are valid, but they said no. But if he wants to try again he can come tomorrow and go through the process again.

    We discussed, as much as I want him to be in the programme, I couldn't resist the thoughts of maybe God has other plans for him. Maybe it's His way of saying he's worth more than just being a reality TV show winner. I know he's great with cooking, I got over 20 kilos of prove hahaha and with the chef judges compliments to reassure that, I guess he prefer to stick with what had happened instead of trying to prove himself of something obviously already great.

    My husband is not a joker and he certainly is a very quiet man. He's observant, which I think what makes him a great cook. If his timid personality that cost him his Masterchef dream then I think it's not worth pursuing. Don't you think?

    However, I will not deny that a certain part of me still wants him to go and try again, not to win the second room judges over but to let the chef judges know that he's serious about his cooking passion.

    I don't know. I'm sure you notice the contradiction in everything I've written but well I am human, it's very hard to resist on being imperfect.

    The most disappointing thing ever to me about Masterchef Malaysia is that they sort of focus on famous people like Ary Malik and Zery Zamry, I think Ary is or was an actress (I don't watch TV) and Zery Zamry was previously on another reality TV show (Project Runway)

    These people made real good bucks, I'm not sure about Ary Malik but Zery Zamry is a successful fashion designer.

    Again I know you probably think I'm ranting because my husband didnt get through and I am probably eating my heart out trying to point his failure on to others. Well, I actually don't care what you think... ahahaha... I never had any problem with people disagreeing with my way of saying things and I shouldn't start now kan? :p

    Well, that's about it... it's too depressing to be discussing about this whole Masterchef affair.

    My husband is totally calm and content, it's really funny actually. I mean everyone around him, are frustrated and angry with the programme but he's just... well.. being himself. He seems to not affected, not that i surprised... I know him. Unlike me, he's actually the last person you'd imagine offended by this whole thing.

    If it was me rejected because of my personality I will be damn furious. I mean who are you to judge whether or not my personality suits your TV show!!! Tapi there, it's obvious... It's THEIR TV SHOW... I guess they hand-picked persons who they think can sell the programme.

    Just look at Akademi Fantasia... aha!!! It's all drama lah...

    OK OK... I'll stop.

    Sorry if anybody offended by this post, this is merely my thoughts out loud. Posting them online kinda give me a satisfaction... a some sort of relieve if there's others who agree. or not.

    anyway. wish us luck with everything else. bye.
