the duck and the devil

~~something i got from my Dad~~

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm.
He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods.
He practiced in the woods, but he could neverhit the target.
Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner.
As he was walking back he saw Grandma's pet duck.
Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed it.
He was shocked and grieved! In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the woodpile, only to see his sister watching!
Fatima had seen it all, but she said nothing.
After lunch the next day Grandma said, 'Fatima, let's wash the dishes.'
But Fatima said,'Grandma, Ahmed told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.'
Then she whispered to him, 'Remember the duck?' So Ahmed did the dishes.
Later that day,Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, 'I'm sorry but I need Fatima to help make supper.'
Fatima just smiled and said, 'Well, that's all right because Ahmed told me he wanted to help.'
She whispered again, 'Remember the duck?'
So Fatima went fishing and Ahmed stayed to help.
After several days of Ahmed doing both his chores and Fatima's, he finallycouldn't stand it any longer.He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.
Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, 'Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you.
I was just wondering how long you would let Fatima make a slave of you.'
Thought for the day and every day thereafter?
Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done... and the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness,etc.)...whatever it is...
You need to know that Allah was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing.
He has seen your whole life.
He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven.
He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.
The great thing about Allah is that when you ask for forgiveness, He not only forgives you, but He forgets.
It is by Allah's grace and mercy that we are saved.
Go ahead and make a difference in someone's life today.

Share this with a friend and always remember: Allah is at the window!

a bit of this and that

life has been nothing but a rollercoaster ride for the past few weeks. i'm not is it bcoz of the pms-ing or what actually. i was stressed a few days and i was happy a few days and then i was sad for a few days. one thing that contribute to my sadness and happiness is 'him'. but it's all okay now. boy, he sure knows how to make me feel happy again. =D thanks baby. long distance relationship have taught us sooo many things..i think most of it is how to be patient and cooperation.

i watched made of honor and i feel like...aaaa..that's so sweetttt..ehe.that's the thing, this movie was showing how we, humans, tend to take for granted of certain people and relationship. we will only realized about it when they are not around. so here i would like to remind myself how lucky i am to have great people around me. thank you all.

yetserday i was watching the oprah. it was about what would you do...they acted out some scenes and see how the public response to it. it was good. there was one of the scene where, a muslim girl (actor)steps into a doughnut shop and wanted to buy some doughnut but the seller (actor) didn't want sell to her and asked her to leave the shop. not only was he doing that, he said some stuff that was kinda discriminating religion and stuff. the shocking part was that most of the public refused to help the muslim girl. some even agreed to the seller and asked her to leave the shop. then there was 2 teenage girls who stood up. they got angry at the seller and telling him that she has the right and the war was not her fault and some other stuff. the end was when one the girls demanded to talk to the manager of the shop.i was like..gosh..what's happening to all the adults???why are they being so racist? so mean? is this how you show good examples to your children? well there was some other scenes like, women being beaten up in the park, a drunk driver who wants to drive, how popular girls bullied those nerdy girls..and etc. there are still some nice, caring humans in this world. this show can be an eye opener to the world. i think it's showing on ABC, What Would You Do..not sure about the time.

it's like less than a month to the trip. really excited. a reminder to my roomate, please renew your passport..ehehe..

debates and kampung

Yesterday i watched the debates between Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Datuk Shabery Cheek.
It was a good debate between two political parties..i was impressed by how Datuk Shabery Cheek managed to stand up his points and how well Datuk Anwar handled critism and stuff. Conclusion..it was even. both parties stated their arguments well. =)

i'm glad that Petronas is doing well..not because i graduated from the university under it's wings but it is one of the top companies in Malaysia. HUGE SUCCESS! and yes it's been listed in the Fortune 500 so tell me why is it that i shouldn't be proud of it. keep up the good work...and to my friends yg keje Pet tuh..slamat bekeje.eheheh..ok i'm turning into my wacky mood.

i just ate like 5 pieces of mata kucing..sedappp...i wish i could eat more but it's too risky cause i might have asthma attack. so better control myself.

let me ask you a question, is it wrong to have a crush on someone else while you are already in love with another person? i mean it's just a simple crush..maybe you like the way that person smile or the way the eyes sparkles...is it wrong? does it consider to be unfaithful????

so weekend was spent in Gopeng. ate durians, langsat, and etc. it was raining da whole day so not much of fruits picking activity. but overall was damn nice and relaxing. sometimes i imagined my atuk and opah was there..miss them. since it was raining da whole day, i end up wearing those phua chu kang rubber boots when collecting the fruits. my dad said i was like a german...german???why that??i should have taken pix of myself..ehehe..

so there's like another 1 month and 1 week to our bandung trip. all jiggy inside.ehehe..i want to eat...eat..eat..and spa.........not really sure about shopping cause i dont know how good the quality there..if i see something nice than i'll buy. i might buy some telekung and kain2 there. next plan holiday????well, huda and i are planning to go to krabi island...ehehehe..no shoppin..just relaxation.nice....
