Morning Cup Of Coffee

What makes your day cheerful and extremely pleased? My answer would simply a cup of coffee. When I was in college, coffee is more than enough as the morning wake-up call. A good cup of coffee in the morning calms me down, relaxes me and prepares me up to go through the day. I’m not just briefly in love with the energetic effect of this southern Arabia-originated beverage, in fact, I love the delicate aroma, color and wonderful taste, no wonder coffee was among the top agricultural export for several countries in the world. I’m definitely a coffee enthusiast. But the pride soon humbled me when my friend noticed and subsequently told me that I’m addicted to coffee which in turn caused him to thread me "penagih". For some reasons, he got that point right. When I don’t get my daily intake of coffee I may appear aloof and occasionally become agoraphobic. I have noticed a slight decrease in my mood fluctuations whereas slight increase in anxiety. Strictly speaking, this is one sign of a caffeine addiction I get by myself. Damn it. (At least I'm not addicted to morphine)

Well, there are many reasons why people are drawn to coffee. Some teenagers prefer to use coffee to keep them up for a late night of studying, but they also use it to wake themselves up after their short night of sleep. Personally I find that it is hard to ward off this kind of habit. We all knows that caffeine can speed up heart rate, thus making it as the most consumable drink in our society. Coffee may be popular, but its side effects aren’t. However please bear in our mind that too much caffeine can lead to stunted growth or weakened bones and some disorders like insomnia and diarrhea.

Last but not least, one word to describe coffee, SPLENDID!

Why Nerd?

First thing comes through my mind, "am I supposed to write the title 'nerf' instead of 'nerd'?". Coz, I've been thinking that, I tend to be the one who likes playing with NERF™ than becoming the one who loves books and socially akward in general or in colloquial language, we called it nerd. Whereas NERF™ is a toy brand created by Parker Brothers and currently owned by Hasbro. Back to the issue then, I am far from becoming a nerd due to the reality that I play a lot, gossiping a lot, instead of reading. As far as I concern about my study, most of the time I really read the book for the sake of exam, otherwise I rather play some sorts of games or sports during my leisure time like football, computer games etc. I personally admit, that's one of my destructive behavior (Oh gosh, I really need to have a session with counselor). Luckily, I passed my first medical exam despite without distinction and simultaneously there was the first nerd failure.

Nevertheless my gut tells me, "you shouldn't be a nerd and... yet there's no reason to deactivate your email (". lol. I personally feel that to trust my instinct utterly would allow me to live a reasonable existence. There was something else I wanted: to be smart. I preferred to be on the smart side of average rather than the dumb side, but intelligence counted quite more than physical appearance, charisma, or athletic ability. There's a strong correlation between being smart and being a nerd. Frankly, I myself hate the nerd-appearance students and so do the nerdiness within themselves just because, they seldom socialize; at least go playing some sports. It is not due to the fact that I am an Executive Councillor of Sports and Recreation of Medical Student Association who needs to encourage all of you guys to participate in sport activities, it just we're having the same physiological system need to stabilize normal condition within ourselves and build rapport among our colleague indirectly. At last I found out myself that trying to be a nerd just makes my live miserable and BORING.

I just want to stress out that there's an Arabic proverb mentions, "A healthy mind comes from a healthy body".

6 Sept!

Alhamdulillah, A month of fasting had passed us. I wonder have you started pondering what Ramadhan means to you? Hopefully we had given the best shot for that month which is fulled with baraqah. Next, Syawal came with the enjoyment and amnesty for the muslims all around the world include Malaysian people who has celebrated the month with gaiety and sometimes I do think they still celebrating it immoderately somehow. From 'duit raya' to 'bunga api', all of it are wasted from my point of view. A high five to my mother because she didn't give lots of 'duit raya' for those children who tried visiting our house scrounging for ringgit for sure.

Well, there's a lot of stories about Idulfitri and some are pleasurable some are painful. The first day, I spend my time in Selangor visiting my grandfather and cousins of course. We did sharing our stories. Besides Almond London and Dodol, there's a lot of wonderful memories that I could not forget. For instance, the way I slipped in front of toilet mainly caused by a letter which I tried myself to send it to post office quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the scar left behind was pretty annoying! Who does want that scar anyway?

I hate this year Idulfitri when it comes to pack my stuff into luggage for oncoming registration day. Hereinafter, the story of a medical student begins. It is the ladder that I must climb with no doubt and complaint. I admit, it is utmost pathetic to leave my beloved home after all 6 months I'd been dreaming, rambling, bullying my sister and other things whether by accident or design. Yeah, 6 September. I'll remember it. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim..

Am I too lazy?

Frankly, I don't read a lot of books during this precious holiday. Even the newspaper that my father keeps buying almost everyday, I don't take benefit from that. Yet, the medical terminology that I thought I can finished in this 2 months holiday, regrettably I'm not managed to memorize it. My brother just finished his degree and then he gave me a book titled "Easy Steps To Public Speaking". I agreed that the book was quite interesting and very inspiring. I managed to read it only 5% despite the book was quite like a thin ice! Am I too lazy? Oh man!!

I tell you my vital secret. Guess what? When I'm completely boring, I prefer to sleep. Every now and then, having such a wonderful dream makes me feel "yeah, this is my real world". I do realize that it is a destructive habit that we supposed to keep it away. I like dreaming to be far from ordinary. It is quirk of human nature that most of people are not contented with what life has offered them. And I do agree up to a certain point that, we must accept the kalimah "Alhamdulillah" and always put that harmonious word in our daily lives.

I hope that, oncoming Ramadhan, I'll become better than I am today. No more sluggard things. No more so-called setan. And no more sleep-a-lot habit. I remember a remark from a senior of mine before we did our maghrib prayer, "Anggaplah Solat ini adalah yang terakhir". Hereinafter, I would like to use his remark for oncoming Ramadhan Al-Mubarak because I found it very motivating for me to make my ibadah khusyuk. Insyaallah. Guys, let's make this Ramadhan better than the past.

"Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa." Qur'an (2:183)

"Indeed, We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months." Qur'an (97:1-3)

A dreamy smile

Alhamdulillah, I've just finished my pre-medic course and I'm quite satisfied with it. There's a lot of things that I learned and it contribute me a lot towards positive personal growth. From my colleague to lecturers, they are all awesome except for the hot college and no sleeping pillow. Insyaallah I'll pursue my studies in this local university on this September. I surely don't care about others perception about Uitm. The phrase 'every mushroom cloud has a silver lining'. It simply means every single thing on earth has their own goodness and so do the scarcities. I personally hold on to the phrase as my principal in life.

Today's my first day at home and yet I'm still fuzzy what should I do in 2 months holiday before going to college. Hurm. I should be happy because I can gather around with my 7 family members at home. Next month my sister will taking a flight from University of Al-Azhar back home. After that, we can see everyone's smile and have an unforgettable Ramadhan's activities together. I always waiting for that moment. =)

What I should do on my holiday? Should I spare the times with my laptop's games, friends or even falling sleep all the time? Absolutely NO!! I need to focus on my future study. Of course there's still some hours to spare for that meaningless and waste things. Below are the list that I would like to do:

  • memorize some medical terminologies that were suggested by senior
  • learn more English vocabularies 
  • get some kemejas perhaps
  • watch a few movies such as Green Lantern, Transformers etc
  • yeah games!
  • spare time hanging with friends  
  • puasa and hari raya
  • .....

p/s: I'll update the list from time to time. =)

All Things Bright And Beautiful

Assalamualaikum (peace be upon you),

Hye guys... It's been a long time I'm not updating my poor blog. I'm just thinking how to spend my precious final week in Shah Alam before going back home. A friend of mine invited me to join him to Kuala Lumpur. wow! but still don't have good plan what we'll be doing there. Any suggestions? Hurm.. before that, I need to sit for an OSPE exam. I'allah there'll be no problems with that because it just a preparation exam. We just don't take it seriously. But still need to pass the test entirely.

Honestly, I do get bored and stressed with all the books. And then, I think about how to handle this stress. Sometimes, playing computer games such as Call Of Duty and Fifa 11 makes me better. I'm absolute an addictive gamer. Yeah.. a MAD gamer too.. When I'm completely boring, I like to put on my earphone listening to Owl City's songs. It sure does enjoying me. The lyrics are cute, mindless and atmospheric. With other musics I focus on it, but I don't need that for this leisurely Owl City's. I'd like to mention that, I've learn a lot of vocabularies too from this United States-originated singer

Seriously my watch shows 2.45am yet my eyes don't even get tired instead it still tickling me so that I can't fall asleep. Sometimes I feel like such an insomniac. I'll try drinking warm milk. Hopefully it makes me feel weary and sleepy. Good night then.
