Currently obsessed with rossa's hit: ayat-ayat cinta OST (song uploaded at sidebar). Can't wait for the movie release! You may have a peek at the trailer : http://ayatayatcintathemovie.com

Rossa - Ayat-Ayat Cinta

desir pasir di padang tandus
segersang pemikiran hati
terkisah ku di antara
cinta yang rumit...

bila keyakinanku datang
kasih bukan sekadar cinta
pengorbanan cinta yang agung
ku pertaruhkan...

maafkan bila ku tak sempurna
cinta ini tak mungkin ku cegah
ayat-ayat cinta bercerita
cintaku padamu
bila bahagia mulai menyentuh
seakan ku bisa hidup lebih lama
namun harus ku tinggalkan cinta
ketika ku bersujud...

Synopsis: Ayat Ayat Cinta is a beautifully portrayed Islamic love story -- a tale of a virtuous Muslim protagonist who overcomes all obstacles of life maintaining pure ideals.

Fahri bin Abdillah is a poor, intelligent student who wins a scholarship to complete his graduate degree at Egypt's esteemed Al Azhar University. Very disciplined and dedicated by nature, Fahri embraces his life in Cairo, completing his studies and translation of religious books with full enthusiasm, exactly according to pre-determined targets.

Only one goal is left unattempted: the pursuit of marriage.

For Fahri is innocent and pure, and doesn't believe in the concept of relationships prior to marriage. He is inarticulate and shy around women. All his life, only two women have been close to him -- his mother and grandmother.

Life changes drastically in Egypt for he suddenly finds himself surrounded by four beautiful, distinctly different women.

Maria Girgis, a shy, open-minded Coptic-Christian neighbor who is attracted to the teachings of the Holy Al Quran, finds herself falling in love with Fahri (a fact she only reveals to her diary).

Nurul, a student at Al Azhar like Fahri, is the Muslim daughter of a renowned Indonesian cleric. Fahri feels unworthy of her and thus ignores his feelings for her, leaving her confused and guessing.

Noura, an abused Egyptian neighbor, develops strong romantic feelings for Fahri, who in turn simply sympathizes with her situation. His romantic rejection destroys her and eventually leads to a false accusation of rape.

Aisha, a German Turkish student in Cairo haunts Fahri with her beautiful eyes. Following an incident on the metro where Fahri defends her against narrow minded bigoted Muslims, both immediately develop feelings for each other.

As the story unravels, the protagonist makes the audience face the daunting decisions he himself faces, and forces us to marvel at his undying loyalty to the true ideals of Islam as he ultimately makes the choice of a lifetime.

ps: Salam Qurban Bayram; Eid-ul-Adha buat semua!! Raya kali ini tak terasa sangat..mungkin sebab bahang musim peperiksaan yang makin hampir..huhu. Jealous dengan family yang tengah beraya di kampung :(

pps: Haritu ayah saye kena demam denggi. Biiznillah, sekarang die dah pulih..alhamdulillah.

ppps: Doakan kami lulus semua subjek dengan cemerlang yee!! ;)

InsyaAllah, panjang umur, we meet again in 2008 ^_^

Lotsa love,

Doctor, the clock ain't stop clicking...

In The Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


It took me, like, nearly half a day to summarize the whole thought lingering in mind - the do's and don't's, plus the shoulds and shouldn'ts. Of what the input should be, and how the output might seem.

I'm a 4th year student, and at my place, many regard it as the so-called 'honeymoon' year. Not that we could wiggle our toes 24/7, but perhaps because - well, compared to 3rd year, the schedule is like 5 times less hectic. And some students might as well get over the bridge. Literally saying, they'd just take it for granted.

'course, I'm one of those who, alike the others, would love to 'cherish' the beautiful moment. Married couples would be endlessly persuading the juniors, "kalau nak kahwin, kahwinla time 4th year. Meeemangg sangat honeymoonnn".. which is irrefutably true. One married couple is currently in my group - and yeah, nothing can be happier than seeing them being happy =)

Then again, you've still got the remaining years. Sebelum housemanship pun boleh lagi. Kan kan kan?

But that isn't the main issue.

Time is precious. Masa itu emas. Juga umpama pisau..andai kita tak dahului masa, ia akan memotong kita.

Some cycles in 4th year are so light, you can even sulk your eyes by watching movies non-stop. You could just simply do that.

But, it just doesn't feel right.

When I was 11, I nearly got whipped by dad for not being able to answer some mathematics problem. Cried terribly at that moment. It was 11pm at night, and an exam awaited me the following day. I could barely watch tv - let alone my all night fave series. Dad taught me to respect time. He taught me to stay up, to set my priorities right.

If dad saw the current me watching movies per se a quarter of the day, I bet he'd be upset. But, thing is, he isn't with me. And he couldn't see.

But Allah could. He sees me every time, everywhere, and He knows my exact doings. Won't He be sad if I did the supposed-not? Allah did not give us 24 hours for nothing. Which is precisely why, when drifted, I'd remind myself - you should be revising, kiddo.

Alhamdulillah, I'm already in my clinical years. At some times, in the past, I would have second thoughts of quitting med school and teach English to school kids. Mesti comel kan. Kih kih kih =P.

But, I don't think that could, would, or should happen at the present. It's just way late.

Sometimes I would have awful thoughts and pictures of how my life would presumably be in the future. Shadows of doubts that you'd just love to cast (speaking 'debate-term'-ly).

Back in high school, I always wished that my life would be of like mum's. Get her 'single' marital status altered into 'married' by the age of 22. But, I guess it might not fit me well. Mum and dad won't let me get hitched before med school ends. Huhuhu. Takpela, saya redha. They know me well, and know what's best. Mesti ada hikmah kan.

Then again, I'd be picturing myself getting the title before HOship starts. Lepas tu ke hulu ke hilir menjawab on-call dengan perut yang boroi, berbadan dua. Berpakainan 'maternal clothing' (did I ever tell you that at outfit stores, I always end up getting hooked at some maternal dress? Kadang2 bila di kaunter bayaran baru tersedar..huhu). Mesti comel kan. Hehehe ;P

If all goes smooth sailing, I'd get the 'Dr' initial ahead of my name in 2 and a half years. Yup. Which also signals the beginning of HOship. And the though of it really terrifies me. It's at this moment when you'd be pressurized to the fullest. Sometimes, I wonder if I could even be a doctor. As in, like, leave home and kids for more than half a day, abandon all the holidays you've been craving for.

My aunt, a Masters graduate, rejected countless of accountant job offers, most of which required late night returns. Said that none of them suited her timetable, and that nothing is more important than being at the side of her kids, watching them grow, whats more at the critical stage of a kid's age when identity-seeking is the major agenda. If you learn by heart, and not define knowledge by money, you'd see why I made the decision, she says. On the other hand, my neighbour's mum, an Associate Professor, left the highly-profited job to take care of her 10 children.

Which makes me think - am I gonna be able to be that, a good mum and wife, as my mum?

When I filled in the JPA form years back, i scribbled pharmacy as the course of choice. Dad saw the former, and - well, he didn't frown, but the smile he gave wasn't his usual smile. Said that he'd wished to be a doctor ever since, but didn't excel biology well enough, and would love nothing more than to see her first daughter accomplish that dream. Dad also proposed the option of lecturing medical students - something substitutable if ever i felt like laying off my hands from patients for a period of time.

Well abah, I'm on my way half through.

If ever anything happens, I'd put my family first ahead =)

ps: This article makes a good tip-off. Suggest you guys read it.
[Saifulislam: Kenapa Mahu Jadi Doctor?]

pps: Ayah saya tak garang, tapi tegas, lebih-lebih lagi dalam hal kerjaya dan keluarga. Dan dia seorang yang penyayang dan sangatttttlaa humorous...jadi janganlaa takut yee..hehehe :P

pps: Kawan-kawan jangan lupe, apa-apapun kita buat, niat utama ialah lillahi Ta'ala. Dia yang Maha Berkehendak, Maha Menentukan, dan ape terjadi sekalipun, pasti ada hikmahnya...arasso? =)

Burnin' d kitchen's oil..

Salaamun alaik..

It's 29th October, and little do we realize that raya has already made its half move. Weekends would be hectic with open rooms piled in a row, and round li'l tummies just get - well, bloated.
If, you know what I mean.

For our open room, I was so-called elected as head chef for the chicken rendang. Whacked up some great time with chillies, chicken and all, and the room and kitchen just can't get any messier. Been sittin' in front of the stove from 10pm till 630am. After all, it's just a once in a year event.

The dishes? Nasi impit, dried chicken rendang, mee jawa, kuah kacang, air sirap limau, cookies, sweets and some wee bit of 'kuih cornflakes'. Tapi ade yang terkurang..maaf yee yang tak dapat :P

Menu Rendang Ayam Kering (doing it my maktok's way) :

Kisarkan bawang merah, bawang putih, halia, lengkuas, dan serai. Masukkan ke dalam periuk/kuali. Tumis. Masukkan cili boh/cili kering yang telah dikisar. Tunggu sehingga pecah minyak. Untuk mendapatkan warna yang lebih 'umph', tunggu lama sedikit.

Masukkan ayam yang telah dipotong kecil-kecil. Kacau. Kemudian, tuang santan pekat. Masukkan asam keping, daun limau purut, garam dan gula secukup rasa. Kalau mahu pedas, boleh masukkan sos cili; jika tidak, bubuh sos tomato (tapi tak perlu banyak).

Sejam yang terakhir, boleh masukkan kerisik dan serai/daun kunyit untuk menaikkan bau.

Selamat mencuba!

ps: pastikan api tidak terlalu kuat, dan perlu kacau selalu supaya tidak hangit. Untuk hasil yang memuaskan, tunggula 5 jam ye =)

Tadaaa!! Rendang ayam, anyone?? ^_^

Eid Fitr wishes from Ukraine...

Salam alaik..

Sending warm wishes to my dearest family and friends, and to all readers..

Ramadhan pergi mengundang penantian
Syawal tiba lakar kemenangan iman
Dari jauh kususun sepuluh jari

Memohon maaf andai ada tersilap kata, tersalah bicara

Ku hanya insan biasa, punya kelemahan diri

Allah jua Maha Sempurna segalanya...

Of course, raya abroad differs a lot from raya locally. You don't get a fistful of green envelopes you crave to open, and the 'who-gets-the-most-duit-raya' marathon - well, there ain't any. Like I'm still qualified to even receive them anymore. Ngehe~

I have uploaded some little snapshots of our initial 3 days of raya. Just so people will know that - well, raya overseas isn't that dull and solemn as stereotyped-ly thought by some folks, and we're striving hard to make any space available seem jovial as can be :) . Thanks to openhouses, nasi impit and rendangs, the spirit is still there. And of course, every empty lane has somehow transformed into runways for baju raya show-offs' :P

SUK jr girls (with farhana's hubby) at the 1st morning of raya

Juadah makan-makan kami di hari pertama: nasi tomato, ayam masak merah, kuah kacang, nasi impit, lodeh, puding jagung, kek butter strawberry (kek tu saya buat dengan Tira..hehe)

Malam tu kami main bungapi dengan seronoknye!! :)

Openhouse di bilik SUK sr girls. Seperti biasa kami di 'adik-manjakan' - dahla datang awal, makan banyak pulak tu! Pelahap betul. Menu: mee jawa + puding roti + agar-agar nenas..sedap menjilat jariii~~~

Candid photos taken by fana's hubby. Nak buat macamane, baru sorang sahaja di kalangan kami yang dah berkahwin, terpaksalah suaminya melayan kami semua yang banyak kerenah nie :P

Openhouse di bilik 907, 1st hostel. Sibuk sungguh tuan-tuan rumah melayan tetamu, sampai tak menang tangan. Seawal jam 5 pagi dah mula tanak nasik dengarnye. Menu: nasi warna-warni, ayam percik, ayam masak madu, agar-agar, apple flan, puding karamel, air sirap bandung.

Suke pulak tengok spongebob yang tergantung tu..hehe~

Gambar memang tak best kalau xde Tira. The hottest babe in our group!! You can see her wide grin - she just can't stop smiling :)

Raya Grand Celebration: Nasyid Performance from the Hizbullahs'. Ada juga persembahan tarian zapin dan sketsa, tapi gambar kurang jelas untuk di upload.

Roomies forever. Were always with me through thick and thin, and will be (unless one of us gets hitched in the near future :P). Yang kanan sekali dan bertudung bulat tu, sudah pun bertunang. Tunangnya yang menyanyi nasyid, berbaju biru :)

Keena, Achot, Aishah & me..D gurlz of 831, 5th~

ps: nanti kami insyaAllah nak buat openhouse..datanglah yee!! :)
