..Knowing Where to Tap..

*This is one of my favourite inspirational stories. Knowledge is power, right?

Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed?

The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom. Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars. ”What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!” So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer …….. $ 2.00

Knowing where to tap ………… $ 9998.00

Moral: Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.

..Nasi Kandar: From Penang With Love..

At last dapat jugak makan nasi kandar originally from penang walaupun bukan the famous Line Clear or Kayu or Pelita.

At first En Hubby macam reluctant jugak nak tapaukan balik, takut basi lah, nanti sampai rumah dah lewat lah, takut tak sempat nak beli, tak tahu nak beli kat mana haha banyak betul alasannya.  Tapi the wife memang dah kemaruk sangat kan...

Malam tadi pukul 12 lebih dia sampai, walaupun macam dah mamai-mamai, tetap makan jugak nasi kandar tu..*konon2 diterbangkan khas dari penang lah hahaha.

Pastu pagi tadi, saya tanya en hubby 'kali ni outstation tak de belikan saya apa-apa ke?', cepat je dia jawab 'dah beli nasi kandar tu kan' huhuhu.

P/s: I have a little confession - saya ada satu sindrom ni.  Everytime en hubby pergi outstation, beria-ia saya pesan kat dia tak payah beli apa-apa, jangan membazir, blablabla..  But actually, I sort of hope he'd buy anyway and 'surprise' me.  Gedikkkk, I know.. is it only me or memang semua perempuan macam tu??

..Princess of China..

My current favorite song by Coldplay

Once upon a time somebody ran
Somebody ran away saying fast as I can
I've got to go...got to go

Once upon a time we fell apart
You're holding in your hands the two Halves of my heart
Ohhhhh, ohhhhh!

Once upon a time, we burn bright
That all we ever seem to do is fight
On and on...
And on and on and on...

Once upon a time on the same side.
Once upon a time on the same side, at the same Day
And why'd you have to go have to go and throw it all on my fame

I could've been a Princess, You'd be a King
Could've had a castle, and wore a ring
But noooooo, you let me gooooooo!

I could've been a Princess, You'd be a king
Could've had a castle, and wore a ring
But noooooo, you let me gooooooo!

And stole my star

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
You stole my star la, la la la la laaaaaa

Oooooooh-oh oh oooooooh oh oh oh ohhhhhhhhh
Oooooooh-oh oh oooooooh oh oh oh ohhhhhhhhh

Cause you really hurt me
No you really hurt me
Cause you really hurt me
No you really hurt me
Cause you really hurt me
Ooooooooh no you really hurt me
Cause you really hurt me
Ooooooooh no you really hurt me....

..Get From Instead of Get Through..

I am now reading ''Five Major Pieces To The Life Puzzle'' by Jim Rohn.  I haven't finished reading it yet but there's one point that I think does really hit me in the face.

''Do not try to get through the day.  Try to get from the day''.

I realised that nowadays I kinda live my life (especially my working life) just to get through the day.  Which means I might have been missing so many things or details that I actually could learn from the day.

I need to be more observant, I need to learn more.  And this might help me not to take things for granted anymore.

*I need to finish reading all the books as well.

Hubby: Whitney Houston ni pengacara Oprah tu ke?


Situation 2: Hubby called while I was having breakfast with a friend at the canteen.

Hubby: Awak, dgr lagu ni jap..ni lagu Justin Bieber ke?

*Dia kuatkan radio and I straightaway burst into laugh once I heard the "Love You Like A Love Song" on the radio over the phone.

Me:Bukan Justin Bieber la, tu awek dia Selena Gomez..hahaha

*isn't he the cutest?adoii, cair hatiku hari-hari macam ni...

..New Favourite Phrase..

My niece's (Aisya's) favourite new phrase:

''Kalau awak cakap camtu, saya marah!''

Adoii, garang betul.  Tapi geli hati bila dia cakap macam tu.  Sejak dah sekolah ni selalu cakap 'saya-awak'.  Cute!!

..Surah Al-Waqiah..

Prophet Muhammad said, "Whoever recites Surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty."

Prophet Muhammad said, "Surah al Waqiah is the Surah (Chapter) of Wealth, so recite it and teach it to your children."

Captured this on the way to work this morning.  This was the second time nampak kereta ni, so cepat-cepat keluarkan phone and ambik gambar.

So can you spot the devil on the perodua logo?  Haha.

..Emotion over Mind??..

Don't let your emotion take over your mind's function.  Seriously, you'll waste your time, energy and LIFE playing the victim card or finding ways to blame others.

Relax and take it easy sometimes.  Not everything is about you hahaha.

..Warna Hari Isnin..

No more public holiday until May.

Not that I'm planning for any vacation pun. It's just that being away from work for more than 2 days feels awesome hahaha.

But it's okay, because I'll be going back to hometown 3 times in the mean time. Insya-Allah.

Bertabahlah hati!

..Kuch Kuch Hota Hai??..

*mode: melayan hati lepas my sister's family went back to Kemaman. rindu pulak suasana riuh-rendah itu :(

So, mari distract hati.

Tadi petang bukak facebook, ramai orang update pasal Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ni. I'm not a fan of Hindi movie but I did watch this movie back then. Tengok kat dewan sekolah kott.. haha, hebat tak hebat lah penangan movie ni kat sekolah dulu.

Anyway, ada satu lagu hindustan yang I suka - Dil Kya Kare *terror tak I ingat tajuk lagu tu :p ngee. Haha, actually baru lepas google "filem Kajol and Ajay Devgan" and this one does ring the bell :p

Tapi serius, lagu tu sedap bagi saya :)

..Of The Controversial KFC..

Have you heard of the newest KFC incident (KFC staffs beat up the customer)?

In KFC facebook page, there were a few statements from KFC indicating they were investigating the incident blablabla

And I did read some of the comments - it's funny when some people took it as a racial issue though.

As for me, if I were the customer, I won't bother waiting in the first place kalau dah nampak queue panjang melingkar macam tu. I mean, banyak lagi kot KFC outlet lain, or other fast-food restaurant, for that matter.

And if I were the staff, err... beating up the cust?!! Haih - I can never be in his shoes-lah haha. But seriously, as a muslim, that is not the way to react no matter how much he's been provoked, regardless the long working hour or how little he earned there.

(According to the comments I read, the customer started to lose it and did yell some racist remark to the staff after having to wait for 1 hour for the chicken. However the video didn't really show the whole incident).

Well, of course it's easy for me to say. I'm not the kind whose easily overwhelmed with anger.

So I'm pretty sure I won't become one of them.

But anyway, I just had lunch at KFC yesterday :p

..Mee Rebus Terengganu Style..

Ginilah rupa mee rebus terengganu.  Lebih kurang macam mee sup.

Yang saya buat ni saya letak daging (nak letak ayam pun boleh), telur, sayur sawi, tomato and cili dalam kuah sup tu.

Tapi dari segi rasa agak kuranglah.  Adoii.  Frust sungguh.  Kena tunggu balik Terengganu baru leh jumpa ni, kat Johor mee rebus dia lain.

..Ikan Bakar Sekinchan..

Kedai makan ni area Danga Bay, tapi dari jalan besar tak nampak sebab dia deret belakang (deret belakang Maxis Centre tu yer).

Last last week we went there. Not bad jugak ikan bakar dia.

Mula-mula pilih ikan dulu yer. Tapi kat sini dia memang masak bakar je. Tak ada sweet sour ke, stim ke, 3 rasa ke :p

Kitorang makan simple je - pari, ikan cencaru dengan sayur campur (brokoli, cendawan, asparagus). Rempah bakar dia memang superb. Cumanya pari tu rasa agak hanyir-hanyir sikit.

Tapi En Hubby tak berapa suka so nampaknya no more next time.

..Putus Kali Kedua..

Tak sampai sebulan tukar tali, dah putus lagi.  Yang pelik sangat tu, mesti putus kat sink toilet kat office.  Why???!!!

Tak sempat nak selamatkan semua batu-batu kristal daripada meluncur masuk saluran sinki tu :(

Frust sebab saya suka sangat jam ni which En Hubby yang hadiahkan masa dia pergi Hong Kong last year. 

Even masa pergi tukar tali last month, orang Swatch tu pun cakap design ni memang tak tahan sebab dia just pakai tali tangsi tu je tuk ikat batu-batu tu. 

For this time bolehla tukar dengan tali lama, kalau putus lagi jugak, give up lah.

..Just A Thought..

Rasanya tak perlu dipertikaikan kenapa 'company tak buat sambutan Maulidur Rasul'.

*Tuan punya company bukan muslim pun.

Apa erti 'sambut' Maulidur Rasul cuma pada 12 Rabiul Awal setiap tahun kalau dalam kehidupan seharian tak jadikan Rasullah sebagai contoh pun?

Semoga kita semua sentiasa diberikan panduan dan hidayah untuk sentiasa berusaha menjadi Muslim dan Muslimah yang baik. Insya-Allah.

..Tips to Reduce Headache..

I read this somewhere, dah lama jugak tapi jarang sangat praktikkan. Actually article tu pasal remedies for sinus, tapi saya cuba masa sakit kepala, Alhamdulillah lega. Tapi masa breathing tu jela tak sakit.

Caranya, masa bernafas, inhale thru nose. And exhale thru mouth. Dan masa exhale kena lebih lama dari masa inhale.

Ada satu cara lagi, pun sama jugak. Masa buat je sakit kepala tu hilang, bila stop, rasa sakit balik.

Cara ni saya jumpa secara tak sengaja zaman studi dulu. Bila sakit kepala, saya urut-urut bahagian lengan (dekat dengan area siku), memang tak rasa sakit masa urut tu. Saya pernah cuba kat En Hubby, dia pun kata hilang sakit sekejap.

Bolehlah try kalau tak tahan sangat and jenis tak makan pain-killer like me :)
