Weekend during Ramadhan

Time moves so fast…unnoticed! Really!! I just realize it today after viewing my calendar. What to say, today is already 12th of Ramadhan and raya is just less than three weeks more to go. Ohh, I really hate to think about raya; not because I have to spend a lot for the kiddos' ang pau but the traffic flowing out from KL will be so terrible and nightmare. Experienced it last year and years before. Stranded in the middle of the North-South Expressway; somewhere in Tapah I think. Stop it! I really hate to recall those bad experiences I encountered. They really haunted me….

Yesterday as usual, I went for outing in One Utama for movie before heading to Standard Chartered Tower for my workout session. I didn't plan to buy anything but since I got 40 bucks vouchers from Nike, I just used them all to buy another tee; look nice and I just spent less than 50 bucks for such a nice Nike tee. Thanks to Sportsland. Well, I have another 50 bucks vouchers from Studio R. Let see what I can get with that amount. J

Felt a bit tired during my workout time; maybe due to dehydration but it couldn't stop me from enjoying my sweet workout time!! Well, just to mention here that I assume my workout rountines as usual during this holy Ramadhan and I feel more enthusiastic doing so. Fasting month is not meant to freeze all the routines and activities we normally do in other months. Ramadhan, conceptually can be defined as a school (madrasah) that educates (tarbiyyah) us to be better persons. Its true and I always belive that we should become stronger, more enthusiastic and highly spirit during this holy month but unfortunately, majority of Malays (always referred as Muslims in Malaysia although it's not 100% true) have different definition on this holy month. It's the month to spend more and waste money and other resources. It's the month that weaken us thus we have to sleep and rest more. I don't think this is the spirit and objective of fasting in the holy month of Ramadhan. Definitely, it's totally wrong!! Watch out, dude! I'm giving tazkirah here. J

Back to the main topic. After my two-hour workout session, went to the night market in TTDI. Too many things there especially varieties of foods and colourful delicacies and made me feel a bit stimulated. Anyway, I didn't back home empty handed but with a few small bags/containers of look-good foods (I couldn't taste them what!!). Whatever it is, I still missed my "kanji". Very very much……

Hey, I make a comeback again!!

Damn it!!! It has been so long from the last posting…what a lazy me!! Not even a single line posting; wake up…wake up. Not to say I was so busy in the last couple of months but I would regard this as "laziness syndrome" and I am affected. Maybe I was overdosed by certain elements; something related to hedonistic culture maybe. I have to admit that I missed blogging so much but something seemed like tied me up from doing so. Nah! Just another excuse to put the blame on others. Well, this is what we always do rite?? Or prefer to do. Okay, enough is enough and I admit my weakness for being inconsistent on blogging and abandoned my 'baby' this long. What a great lost to me as many events took place in the last few months and I lost the chance to record any. Those memorable and unforgetful events just passed without a single acknowledgement in this blog.

Maybe some of you wonder what encouraged me to make another comeback this time. I resist to stop blogging at least for the time being until I get the mood back but as wise people said, once you keep on waiting and hoping for the mood, you are waiting for nothing. Whatelse can I do if people around me especially my colleagues are so passionate with their blogs. Last time as I could remember (my memory is getting bad these days!), only me and my senior in this blogging world. But now, it seems like mushrooms after a rainy season where everyone starts to blog. Not to name any but I can see colours around me. U name it!! Pink, blue, yellow, green are everywhere. Pink especially; seems like pinky waves invade my office as I can see pink everywhere. Anyway, when we pray, we ask from The Almighty to bless us with "pink of health". So, don't you agree that pink is everywhere?

I got so many things to mention here but my excitement, enthusiastic and eagerness made me forgot everything. What a weak memory again! I still need time to get back the pace and momentum as last time. Yeah, I need to continue blogging if I want to keep my standard of English. Else, the same thing will happen to me as what had happened to my French last time; saying "au revoir" without my own notice. A great loss to myself and the government who spent a substantial amount of money for me to learn the language.

Finally from bottom of my heart, I would like to take this opportunity though it might be a bit late to wish all my Muslim brothers and sisters, Happy fasting month of Ramadhan. May this Ramadhan brings us Rahmah (mercy of God), Maghfirah (forgiveness of God) and Najah (salvation) respectively. Insya Allah.
