* Tech Support: Yes, Ma'am.... how can I help you?

* Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love. Can you guide me though the process?

* Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

* Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?

* Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart, ma'am?

* Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

* Tech Support: What programs are running, ma'am?

* Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.

* Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off, ma'am?

* Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

* Tech Support : With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

* Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

* Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

* Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program not run on external components ." What should I do?

* Tech Support: Don't worry, ma'am. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non- technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

* Customer: So, what should I do?

* Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

* Customer: Okay, done.

* Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

* Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

* Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.

* Customer: Thank you, God.

Assalamualaikum sayang. Saat mama menulis ini, kau sedang berada di sekolah. Mudah mudahan kau tenang dan penuh bersemangat menimba ilmu dari guru gurumu.

Dalam seminggu ni, setiap kali pulang sekolah, kau akan memberitahu yang kau menangis di sekolah kerana rindukan mama. Tersentuh hati mama sayang, ketahuilah Kal, mama dan papa teramat menyayngi Haikal. Oleh kerana itu kami hantar Haikal ke sekolah diusia awal dan menempatkan Haikal di sekolah yang bermula awal pagi dan berakhir jam 5.00 petang. Ini bukan bererti mama cuba mengelakkan tanggungjawab dari menjaga atau ingin mengurangkan masa untuk bersama Haikal. Sama sekali tidak sayang. Kami lakukan demi memberi yang terbaik buatmu. Di sekolah itu, kami dapati tersedia ilmu dunia dan akhirat. Kerana kedua-dua ilmu dunia dan akhirat amat penting buat kita sebagai hamba Allah.

Mama tahu mungkin kau merasakan terlalu lama berada di sekolah, membuatkan Haikal kurang senang. Tapi percayalah sayang, semakin usiamu meningkat, Haikal pasti memahami dan mengerti akan hakikat hidup ini.

Sebagai anak lelaki, Haikal harus kuat dan tidak boleh cepat menitiskan airmata. Kerana bila dewasa nanti, kau bakal menjadi ketua keluarga. Jadi, Haikal mesti menjadi seorang yang kuat semangat.

Mama tetap mendoakan moga Haikal terus mudah menimba ilmu dan disayangi oleh semua orang. Moga Haikal terus membesar dalam keimanan. Inshaallah.

Eat Less Rice!
By Dietlogist Prof PC ANG LCE SMJK SG. Petani,Kedah

The human body was never meant to consume rice! You see, our genes have
hardly changed in more than 30,000 years. However, our food choices and
lifestyle have changed dramatically. The caveman would hardly recognise
our food or way of life.

Caveman food was never cooked as fire was not yet tamed. Thus, he ate
only those foods that you can eat without treatment with or by fire. He
ate fruits, vegetables, fish (sushi anyone?), eggs, nuts and meat. Yes,
even meat! You can even eat meat raw if you were starving in the forest.
You have the necessary enzymes to digest meat.

However, rice, like wheat and corn, cannot be eaten raw. It must be
cooked. Even if you were starving in the desert, you cannot eat rice in
the raw form. This is because we do not have the system of enzymes to
break rice down. You were never meant to eat rice. To make matters
worse, you not only eat rice, but also make it the bulk of your food.

In some parts of Asia , rice forms up to 85% of the plate. Even if you
take rice, keep it to a minimum. Remember, it is only for your tongue -
not your body. Actually, rice and other grains like wheat and corn are
actually worse than sugar. There are many reasons:

Rice becomes sugar - lots of it!
This is a fact that no nutritionist can deny: rice is chemically no
different from sugar. One bowl of cooked rice is the caloric equal of 10
teaspoons of sugar. This does not matter whether it is white, brown or
herbal rice. Brown rice is richer in fibre, some B vitamins and minerals
but it is still the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. To get the
same 10 teaspoons of sugar, you need to consume lots of kangkong-10
bowls of it.

Rice is digested to become sugar.
Rice cannot be digested before it is thoroughly cooked. However, when
thoroughly cooked, it becomes sugar and spikes circulating blood sugar
within half an hour-almost as quickly as it would if you took a sugar
candy. Rice is very low in the 'rainbow of anti-oxidants. '

This complete anti-oxidant rainbow is necessary for the effective and
safe utilisation of sugar. Fruits come with a sugar called fructose.
However, they are not empty calories as the fruit is packed with a whole
host of other nutrients that help its proper assimilation and digestion.

Rice has no fibre.
The fibre of the kangkong fills you up long before your blood sugar
spikes. This is because the fibre bulks and fills up your stomach. Since
white rice has no fibre, you end up eating lots of 'calorie dense' food
before you get filled up. Brown rice has more fibre but still the same
amount of sugar.

Rice is tasteless-sugar is sweet.
There is only so much that you can eat at one sitting. How many
teaspoons of sugar can you eat before you feel like throwing up? Could
you imagine eating 10 teaspoons of sugar in one seating?

Rice is always the main part of the meal.
While sugar may fill your dessert or sweeten your coffee, it will never
be the main part of any meal. You could eat maybe two to three teaspoons
of sugar at one meal. However, you could easily eat the equal value of
two to three bowls (20-30 teaspoons) of sugar in one meal. I am always
amused when I see someone eat sometimes five bowls of rice (equals 50
teaspoons of sugar) and then asks for tea tarik kurang manis!

There is no real 'built in' mechanism for us to prevent overeating of
How much kangkong can you eat?
How much fried chicken can you eat?
How much steamed fish can you eat?
Think about that!

In one seating, you cannot take lots of chicken, fish or cucumber, but
you can take lots of rice. Eating rice causes you to eat more salt. As
rice is tasteless, you tend to consume more salt-another villain when it
comes to high blood pressure. You tend to take more curry that has salt
to help flavor rice. We also tend to consume more ketchup and soy sauce
which are also rich in salt.

Eating rice causes you to drink less water.
The more rice you eat, the less water you will drink as there is no
mechanism to prevent the overeating of rice. Rice, wheat and corn come
hidden in our daily food. As rice is tasteless, it tends to end up in
other foods that substitute rice like rice flour, noodles and bread. We
tend to eat the hidden forms which still get digested into sugar.

Rice, even when cooked, is difficult to digest.
Can't eat raw rice? Try eating rice half cooked. Contrary to popular
belief, rice is very difficult to digest. It is 'heavy stuff'. If you
have problems with digestion, try skipping
rice for a few days. You will be amazed at how the problem will just go

Rice prevents the absorption of several vitamins and minerals.
Rice when taken in bulk will reduce the absorption of vital nutrients
like zinc, iron and the B vitamins.

Are you a rice addict? Going rice-less may not be easy but you can go
rice-less. Eating less rice could be lot easier than you think. Here are
some strategies that you can pursue in your quest to eat less rice:

Eat less
rice-cut your rice by half.
Barry Sears, author of the Zone Diet, advises 'eating rice like spice'.
Instead, increase your fruits and vegetables. Take more lean meats and
fish.. You can even take more eggs and nuts.

Have 'riceless' meals.
Take no rice or wheat at say, breakfast.. Go for eggs instead.

Go on 'riceless' days.
Go 'western' once a week.

Take no rice and breads for one day every week.
That can't be too difficult. Appreciate the richness of your food. Go
for taste, colours and smells. Make eating a culinary delight. Enjoy
your food in the original flavours.

Avoid the salt shaker or ketchup.
You will automatically eat less rice.

Eat your fruit dessert before (Yes! No printing error) your meals.
The fibre rich fruits will 'bulk up' in your stomach. Thus, you will eat
less rice and more fruits.

It's your life. Decide what you want to eat! But eat less rice!

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera pembaca budiman. Puisi ini tidak sekali-kali terarah kepada mana-mana pihak.

Tiada benci
Slogan pilihan
Apakah gaya,

Kawan paling baik,
Itu terhasil,
Benarkah batin,


Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera kepada para pembaca budiman. Rancangan “Tanyalah Ustaz” siaran 2nd - 4th April membincangkan tentang ujian dalam islam. Jadi, di sini saya ingin berkongsi dengan para pembaca beberapa infor yang dapat saya ambil dari rancangan tersebut. Ceramah dalam rancangan kali ini diberi oleh ustaz Roslan. Seorang penceramah bebas.

Ujian boleh diturunkan kepada kita dalam 3 bentuk: al-iktilak, alfitnah, almehnah.
***Al-iktilak (suatu bentuk bebanan) yang diuji keatas kita. Contoh: menghadapi penyakit kronik, kehilangan harta benda atau kemalangan. Samada ianya diberi kepada kita maupun keluarga.
***Alfitnah ialah suatu ujian yang diberi kepada kita berbentuk fitnah (cerita kurang tepat atau sama sekali tak benar).
***Manakala almehnah adalah ujian yang berbentuk kematian. Ianya terjadi kepada orang yang paling kita sayang.

Menurut penerangan ustaz Roslan lagi, ujian dan azab ada perbezaannya:
***ujian adalah suatu musibah untuk menilai sejauh mana tahap keimanan dan kesabaran hambanya.
***azab suatu kejadian yang lebih berat, impaknya lebih beesar dan dahsyat. Allah boleh menurunkan kemusnahan mutlak yang melibatkan seluruh masyarakat setempat atau sejagat.

Seseorang yang tidak beriman tetapi masih diberi rezeki dan kekayaan melimpah ruah orang ini diistilah sebagai (istijuraj). Tetapi ingat, orang-orang seperti ini sama sekali tiada keredhaan dari Allah.

Mudah-mudahan kita mendapat sedikit ilmu dari perkongsian ini. Bersamalah kita mempertingkatkan tahap keimanan dan kesabaran kita.

Yang baik itu dari Allah. Yang salah sesungguhnya dari kelemahan saya sendiri.

Hari ini Jumaat 2nd april.

Lama rasanya aku tak menjenguk taman memoriku. Entah apakhabar agaknya bunga-bunga kenanganku. Lantas aku memejamkan mata. Perlahan aku membuka pintu taman memori. Harum semerbak tertusuk kedalam rongga hidung.

Kini aku berdiri dikelilingi bunga-bunga kenanganku. Aku memandang ke setiap penjuru. Kesemua bunga masih kelihatan mekar miski kedapatan warna yang agak pudar kerana sukar dirawat dek duri yang terlalu berbisa. Alangkah indah bunga kenangan yang ku gubah di zon kanak-kanak. Lalu aku mendekati penjuru yang menempatkan bunga-bunga kenangan zaman kanak-kanakku. Ku bilik satu persatu. Hati melonjak riang. Semuanya masih segar. Jelas terukir zaman kegemilanganku di alam sekolah rendah. Aku dipilih sebagai pelajar cemerlang (best girl) dua tahun berturut-turut. Semua mata kakitangan sekolah tertumpu kepadaku. Kalungan tahniah ku terima dari rakan taulan. Yang paling gembira saat itu, guru kesayanganku. Takrif cemerlang waktu itu merangkumi: pelajaran, sukan dan tingkah laku. Alangkah manis dan bahagianya detik itu.

Sejenak kemudian, aku berppaling ke penjuru di mana terletak gubahan bunga zaman remajaku. Aku masih boleh tersenyum puas. Miski zaman itu, aku tidak aktif bersosial. Namaku tak seharum anak remaja yang lain. Pun begitu, masih kedapatan kalungan bunga kejayaan zaman itu. Setiap kali menerima keputusan pepereksaan utama, namaku turut tercatat di atas. Entah di mana silapku, kakiku tak terlangkah ke menara gading. Aku tak langsung berminat untuk melangkah ke situ. Miski keputusan STPM mengizinkan untuk aku ke sana. Saat itu ayah ibuku, insan yang paling terkilan. Maffkan anakmu ayah ibu.

Senyumku mula terhakis bilamana mata terarah ke penjuru gubahan bunga alam dewasaku. Longlai kakiku melangkah menghampiri penjuru itu. Mataku mula berkaca tika tanganku mengangkat satu persatu gubahan tersebut. Zaman dewasa terlalu mencabar kewibawaan insan seperti aku. Di celah-celah gubahan bunga yang penuh berduri, teserlah sebuah gubahan yang sungguh indah. Yang sehingga kini masih ku nikmati. Miski bunga itu dihadiahkan oleh seorang insan yang kurang menyerlah. Namun pemberian itu sungguh berarti buat diriku. “ya Allah, sungguh besar kurniamu. Terima kasih ya Allah.” Satu kebahgian telah menghilangkan seribu kedukaan.


assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera para pembaca budiman. maaf puisi ini tiada kena mengena dengan yang masih hidup atau yang telah tiada. sekadar karya ringan penulis.

Bila langkah
Tak lagi seiring,
Bila kata
Tak lagi senada,
Lalu tetutup
Ruang yang terluang.

Tiada lagi
Naluri serasa,
Tiada lagi
Interasi dalaman,
Tiada lagi
Komunikasi jejari.

Yang tinggal kini,
Cerita semalam,
Buat koleksi
Muzium alam.

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera kepada para pembaca budiman. Kali ini saya ingin berkongsi dengan para pembaca tips kehidupan alam barzah yang saya kutip dari Rancangan “tanyalah Ustaz”.

Pertama: Umat islam dilarang sama sekali mendirikan sebarang binaan di atas kubur. Cukup sekadar meletakkan sebuah batu nisan atau sedikit batu bata untuk mengelakkan tanah dari bergerak. Binaan akan menyebabkan ahli kubur lebih tersiksa.

Kedua: orang islam wajib berdoa supaya matinya kelak dalam keadaan dan suasana yang baik. Kerana kita akan dihidupkan kembali seperti mana keadaan kita mati. Contohnya: ditakdirkan kita mati sedang berada di kelab-kelab malam, maka kita akan dibangkitkan kelak seperti berzinah seumur hidup. Atau sekiranya kita mati sedang meminum arak walau pun sekali, maka kita akan dibangkitkan kelak seolah-olah kita minum arak seumur hidup. Maka, marilah kita sama-sama berdoa agar kita semua mati inshaallah dalam keadaan dan Suasana yang sebaik mungkin.

Sumber: rancangan “Tanyalah Ustaz” siaran 28 – 29 Mac. Terbitan tv9.

Mudah-mudahan kita bersama mendapat sedikit munafaat. Inshaallah.
