in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

It touches your heart somehow when somebody recognises you and you don't feel the same way. For instance, today I was about to pay for 3 doughnuts, I asked 'Berapa ni pakcik'?. He replied back 'Seringgit je doktor'.

That was the not the first time. Deep inside in your heart, you wonder 'who is this person again?'.

I suppose that is the way of life that our old folks used to have. These days it is known as 'please, mind your own business'. Those days, they know each and everyone of the villagers. They care, and are kind to each other.

Kulim, though having a steadily increasing population, currently 300 000, is not really a big town. Well, that is obvious I guess. The town is nothing more than just a small 'pekan'. Hence, the old values and the lifestyle.

Me and YB Gobalakrishnan(Padang Serai MP)

To be honest, I really don't know what the future holds for me. Allah knows where will I be in the next 5 years. Maybe in Kulim, maybe in Kuching or perhaps Kuantan. Should I get sent to these places, Kulim will be fondly remembered. A place full with good memories...

The Wedding


in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Today I had the discuss with my friend regarding wedding, as in what is ideal and fits our culture.

I think we have long blindly followed the custom without questioning it. We have got ourselves into a expensive and tedious affair.

In Malaysia alone, we have Utara, Kelantan, Terengganu and Melaka Malays.The list goes on and on. What fascinates me is that between these small states, the custom varies significantly.

As far as I can understand, you can expect your wallet to thin faster should your partner come from Northern states, in term of spending for the wedding.

I am not a die hard fan of this you see.

Moreover when you see that most Northern Malays are not wealthy in general.

There are many things that you find it difficult to fathom throughout our lives. Some of them, we have just to swallow it in, despite its bitter taste.

till next time,

p/s would love to exchange ideas with you readers.

in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

As you are already aware of, weekend in Kedah is defined by Friday and Saturday. That is not ideal of course. I would rather have 1 standardized system for everybody, and I am pretty sure many will agree.

Anyway, not all weekends are meant to be wasted. Right now, I am stuck in Permatang Pauh doing locum. Do you know Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is from this area? Anwar, come out and show yourself! They have come to see you!!

This whole thing will finish by evening.

Many have opted to do locum to earn extra income. With the amount we are getting, it is sufficient to lead a just comfortable lifestyle. Well, not really, if you work and live in big cities.

For me, the moment we receive our salary, almost half of it will be gone by 1 day. Loans here and there, and bills too.

Imagine if you are 28 and you have a wife and 3 kids to look after.

I admire the older generations who had successfully raised more than 5 kids. 5 is just a number by the way, as an example. The current generation at this point of time, hardly have more than 4 kids. The reason given is high cost of living.

I share the same sentiment.

That is why I appreciate my (relatively) young age. I work extra hard for the future. Do not speculate, it has nothing to do with future kids(yet). I am just saying, for future property investments, car loans and perhaps, getting married? lol!!

Not to forget, investment for the hereafter is right as important as the world. A balance between these 2 worlds is vital for everybody, especially the Muslims.

Ikhlas Tapi Jauh


in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

There is not much to blog about today. I'm in a new phase, where as a Medical Officer, you are no longer required to be there 7 days a week. 5 days is of course compulsory, whereas on the weekend you ought to be there if you are on the on call list.

The past 5 days have taught me a lot. Now as a medical officer, you bear the responsibility for whatever you are dealing with. Mistakes are now not tolerable.

I have learned how to save babies. Still the knowledge needs more fixing. I tend to jumble up everything when panicking. A great advantage that I posses is that I get acclimatised quickly, not everyday though. Alhamdulillah..

Let's chill out a bit.

Kematangan Minda


in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Without the slightest doubt in my mind, Malaysians can call themselves extremely lucky. Too many events have taken place very very recently, from East to West. Japan are struggling with the impact from tsunami, Libyans are still battling for their lives and many more.

Having said that, being lucky we are, we have made our lives difficult unnecessarily. Started from Sodomy Trial, the endless corruption and the latest sex scandal, said to be involving Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

There are 2 group of characters here, 1stly, the group that will blindly believe their PKR/UMNO leaders are perfect. Secondly, the group that will object everything whatever their counterparts say.

Have we forgotten,

“Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, hendaklah kamu semua sentiasa menjadi orang-orang yang menegakkan keadilan kerana Allah, lagi menerangkan kebenaran dan jangan sekali-kali kebencian kamu terhadap sesuatu kaum itu mendorong kamu kepada tidak melakukan keadilan. Hendaklah kamu berlaku adil (kepada sesiapa jua) kerana sikap adil itu lebih hampir kepada takwa dan bertakwalah kepada Allah, sesungguhnya Allah Maha Mengetahui dengan mendalam akan apa yang kamu lakukan. (5:8)”

We ought to analyse all the information that is fed to us.

Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Jika datang kepada kamu seorang fasik membawa sesuatu berita, maka selidikilah (untuk menentukan) kebenarannya, supaya kamu tidak menimpakan sesuatu kaum dengan perkara yang tidak diingini - dengan sebab kejahilan kamu (mengenainya) - sehingga me...njadikan kamu menyesali apa yang kamu telah lakukan.(al-Hujurat:6).

We must also continue researching the best answer to the question we want the most, the truth. The quest is never straightforward, and that is the reason why victory is sweet.

We don't live forever, and there is no guarantee that we will see sunset tomorrow.

Sex Video


In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

A lot have been said on the sex video scandal, largely unofficially linked to the leader of Pakatan Rakyat.

With the recent unconvincing Sodomy 2 trial, and its chronologically inchronological, one would question to what extent will Malaysians go and assassinate one political career.

Fair enough, it could be DSAI. It could also be anyone.

Have we forgotten this verse,

Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Jika datang kepada kamu seorang fasik membawa sesuatu berita, maka selidikilah (untuk menentukan) kebenarannya, supaya kamu tidak menimpakan sesuatu kaum dengan perkara yang tidak diingini - dengan sebab kejahilan kamu (mengenainya) - sehingga me...njadikan kamu menyesali apa yang kamu telah lakukan.(al-Hujurat:6).

We are not that perfect anyway to constantly expose one's weaknesses.

I can confidently say many of the Malays have done little reading on our political scenes. Mostly will follow whatever their parents support, as simple as that. Yet, when it comes to argument, they will act as if they know everything.

That is what I call....ah, nevermind.

in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Today is day number 6 of my long awaited holiday. This leave is a bit special in a way, that I get to meet up a lot of friends. Sometimes I feel like capturing all these moments on camera, so that I get to remember these forever. Weird enough, the only camera that I have is my iPod (if that is counted in).

I too was fortunate enough to have the chance to travel to Melaka yesterday. It was a day trip, so now you can still imagine how tired I am now. The last time I stepped foot there was perhaps 6 years ago, attending Zahrul's brother's wedding.

Melaka has changed a lot. It is much more beautiful now, complimented by its outstanding landscape. The food wasn't as good as expected. I can't complain much though, it was only a one time experience.

There is more to tell, unfortunately time is not on my side now.

I sympathize the Japanese. What they are going through is not easy to imagine. In a blink of an eye, they have lost everything. Everything from shelter, food and other basic needs of life.

Not a few have the heart to make jokes out of it. The likes of Ultraman, Shin Chan and Doraemon have made into the Tweetlines (headlines). For that reason, we have become famous worldwide for the wrong reason.

Berita Harian with their cartoon, and now, our so called First Lady, has gone out of her mind. How unwise more could you be by correlating climate change, green technology and tsunami?

The evidence never lies.

Please, enough making the headlines inappropriately.

I think if, at this time you really have no idea what is taking place in Japan, you are the most ignorant person(s) in the world.

It really needs no further telling, videos or images to imagine the amplitude of the event. I do not subscribe to Al Jazeera, however thanks to P1 Wimax, Al Jazeera online streaming is now a possibility.

I really hope more help will come, hence more lives can be saved. We have had the experience of Acheh, and losing 200 000 of your fellow countrymen is really bitter to take.

For my fellow Malaysians, please, leave politics aside. We may have different ideologies, but we should/MUST stand together as 1 in this. 1 nation, 1 Malaysian, by whatever names you can think of, we must offer the best we could.

If anyone has links to any relief efforts/accounts, do post here. I would like to play a part as well.

It's probably too late already, however better late than never in volunteering yourselves for the good of mankind. With the title Dr in front of my own name, I make it an aim to join Mercy Malaysia in the near future.

I hope to hear more good news when I get up tomorrow, InsyaAllah.

I pray to Allah to grant them safety.

till next time,

p/s this is unnecessary. We have moved on. Many times we'll go "fernando who''. Yet you keep on talking about us. N to run down Atletico Madrid, yeah, very smart of you bro.

Fernando Torres insists he made the right move to leave Liverpool for Chelsea, after admitting 'all he cares about is winning trophies

"I knew I was an idol for the Liverpool fans, but it wasn't the same any more. The institution was in chaos with the sale. There was all this talk of possible projects," he said.

"In many ways it reminded me of Atletico Madrid - a great history, many ideas but without money, it needed time. I don't have that.

"People aren't honest in the world of football. You can't say the truth or be clear with people. It's a business and nobody is anyone's friend."

Missing us, are u?

Kicau Kicau


in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

I strongly recommend all my blog visitors to join me at twitter. Yeah, it makes you slightly anti social, but getting 1st hand information is very handy.

For instance, the Anwar Ibrahim's Sodomy trial can be followed closely through updates from The Malaysian Insider. It makes no sense to compare the info obtained in comparison to Utusan Melayu.

Besides that, I have become the followers of some high profile individuals. To date, I am following DS Najib, Khairy Jamaluddin, DSAI, Azmin, Tony Pua, Kit Siang and not to forget, Juliana Evans (pretty,isn't she?) .

Their constant updates make me glued to my Bold.

Still, with the never ending technology inventions, I still spare some time for futsal, gym, movies and occasionally shopping.

My 3rd genuine Liverpool jersey. All the way from UK bro!

Work wise, though not the best, I have been maintained good standard.

In less than 24 hours, my housemanship is over. Woohooooo!!!

till next time,

p/s I stand strongly by my opinion that Utusan Melayu and Harian Metro are the inhibitors to the intellectual development of the Malays.

The Future


in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

It was a turbulent weekend for me, a mixture of joyful, nerve wrecking and also frustrating 2 days.

Yesterday was the last working day a House Officer for me. Officially it will all be over on March 10th, however I am taking leave for the last 3 days. It has been a long 2 years for me. Some have said time flies fast, but that does not seem to be the case for me. With so many ups and downs, I think I have become a better person.

The older you become, the more challenges you will face. It is a scary thought that it's you, yes YOU, need to be on your own 2 feet as age catches up. More responsibilities are placed on your shoulders, and your decision may affect millions. Even worse for me, as a doctor, they will come to me asking to save lives, as if I am God.

The tall order of to keep everyone happy is also another tough task to carry out. It needs no further elaboration here. I reckon maturity is an entity that we need to have, or rather develop, to be a leader, of your family to the least.

I guess what I am saying is now that I have reached a higher level of my career, I need to strive harder, to be better than what I am now.

I still have 5 more days to go, before I will be called as Medical Officer.

Putting that aside, the weekend, yeah. What about the weekend?

Started off with a bang, the committee members and I managed to gather our schoolmates to a reunion get together on Saturday. It was our first meet after 10 years. These people still look the same, some have gotten fatter, some have lost so much weight that they looked like 'mat pit'. Nevertheless, it was an event to remember. One month of hard labour haver paid off, and I couldn't help but to fall asleep while my sisters enjoying Hantu Kak Limah at 9 pm.

The next day, I was back at Kulim. A few of us gathered at Nassmir to watch Liverpool-Man Utd game. 3-1, what a night. Fernando who still echoes now and then. He is gone, and who needs him when we have Luis Suarez. Andy Carroll was given his long awaited debut, almost marked off with a superb assist to Dirk Kuyt. Kenny Dalglish, Happy Belated Birthday to you sir. You can't be more right, there is this belief in Anfield now. The fun to watch Liverpool is back.

There was another news that broke the heart of Malaysians on the same days. The people of Merlimau and Kerdau had had their say, and they voted for BN. I do not blame the defeat entirely on these relatively education lacking citizens, but rather partially must be finger pointed to Pakatan Rakyat. The entire mechanism is a mess.

Please rearrange the lines. Malaysians need a stable and strong opposition, if not a new government.

For everything that happens, there will be a reason behind it. I have fallen before, I refused to acknowledge the future can be entirely differently that you could have imagined. Allah knows best.

Restless Soul


in the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

I reached KL at roughly 8 pm. It was a long journey, as I had to go to Penang to fetch my sister, and next to KL, it had taken me more than 4 hours to be home.

I am obviously exhausted. It is 1 am Friday morning. I feel restless. Something is troubling my mind. It isn't preoccupied with anything specific though. I don't know. I can't explain it.

For whatever it is, I still have to be thankful to Allah. Without his bless, I wouldn't have reached home tonight.

God willing, I shall be successful in getting some sleep tonight.
