♥ Sejam Untuk Bumi..??

2 ♥ comments

Dear blog,

I am sitting in my work station, doing nothing (no audit for this month~yayy kot?) and i think, yes, lets ramble about the Earth Hour.. errr, Sejam Untuk Bumi.???

I think what some people don't get about Earth Hour is that its purpose is to render awareness rather than save our planet only in that measly hour. I believe we're all conscious that one hour is infinitesimal in comparison to the months and years that we've spent desecrating our earth.

An article from The Star claims that Earth Hour is a mere publicity stunt and to some extent, I agree. However, as commercialized as it is, the international NGOs are not to be blamed. If people really do believe just one hour could save the earth and not act beyond it, then isn't it the fault of the people for not knowing better? This one hour is supposed to serve as a starting point in the creation of habits, of reminders. The impact of the world coming together in support of something is supposed to open eyes and inspire minds. It's a stepping stone towards Earth Hours, Days, Months, Years and Forever.

As for it being gimmicky, well, it is something that was conjured by an advertising agency and let's face it, the mass love publicity stunts. It's a strong communication channel and as long as it isn't capitalizing or built on bad intentions, I don't quite understand the problem. Wanting good PR isn't a horrible thing. You, me, corporations—everyone needs it.

So no, I won't try to be a nonconformist and fight Earth Hour. In fact, I'll be switching off as many things as I can come Earth Hour, only because it has trained me to be more aware of the electricity wastage around me, more and more each day. Peace.

♥ Of Rain and Smell.. =)

6 ♥ comments
Dear blog,


I am really interested with err, rain..? Since that its raining all day long.. But why does it smell nice after the rain...? kind of refreshing! Is it to do with a load of positive ions ?...or is that something entirely different that gives u a sense of well being after a thunder storm? I always thought it was because it washed all the dust and particles away and gave everything that just washed fresh!! I really don't know why it really smells good! The nice smell that I'm thinking of is strongest just as rain shower begins. It can be quite strong as the first drops are hit the ground and still more intense if preceded by warm sunshine. The smell always takes me straight back to a game called "batu seremban" I was playing 18 years ago in my school yard.. how nice.. (feel like trying to swallow those airborne.. hehe)..

Ok then i came across this informative article when i was googling about
rain! One of many beautiful creations of Allah!

"Most people notice a distinctive smell in the air after it rains. It's frequently linked with spring, as the smell of fresh cut grass is associated with summer. You'll find it in a lot of poetry and also on many inspirational lists of things to be happy about. But what causes it?

As it turns out, the smells people associate with rainstorms can be caused by a number of things. One of the more pleasant rain smells, the one we often notice in the woods, is actually caused by bacteria! Actinomycetes, a type of filamentous bacteria, grow in soil when conditions are damp and warm. When the soil dries out, the bacteria produces spores in the soil. The wetness and force of rainfall kick these tiny spores up into the air where the moisture after a rain acts as an aerosol (just like an aerosol air freshener). The moist air easily carries the spores to us so we breathe them in. These spores have a distinctive, earthy smell we often associate with rainfall. The bacteria is extremely common and can be found in areas all over the world, which accounts for the universality of this sweet "after-the-rain" smell. Since the bacteria thrives in moist soil but releases the spores once the soil dries out, the smell is most acute after a rain that follows a dry spell, although you'll notice it to some degree after most rainstorms.

Another sort of smell is caused by the acidity of rain. Because of chemicals in the atmosphere, rainwater tends to be somewhat acidic, especially in urban environments. When it comes in contact with organic debris or chemicals on the ground, it can cause some particularly aromatic reactions. It breaks apart soil and releases minerals trapped inside, and it reacts with chemicals, such as gasoline, giving them a stronger smell. These reactions generally produce more unpleasant smells than bacteria spores, which is why the after-the-rain smell isn't always a good one. Like the smell caused by the bacteria spores, the smell of chemical reactions is most noticeable when it rains following a dry spell. This is because once the chemicals on the ground have been diluted by one downpour, they don't have the same reaction with the rainwater.

Another after-the-rain smell comes from volatile oils that plants and trees release. The oil then collects on surfaces such as rocks. The rain reacts with the oil on the rocks and carries it as a gas through the air. This scent is like the bacteria spores in that most people consider it a pleasant, fresh smell. It has even been bottled and sold for its aromatic qualities!

These are a few common rain smells, but there are also all sorts of other scents after it rains. There is lots of aromatic material that the moisture and impact of rain can stir up, and the moist atmosphere following a downpour is particularly good at carrying these particles through the air. So, when you talk about the after-the-rain smell with a friend, you may mean one thing while your friend is thinking of something else. You'll both agree, however, that the air has a much stronger aroma to it after a good rain".

That's interesting and makes sense. Subhanallah.

♥ Happiness Is In My Heart to Stay..

Dear blog,

I know i am caring.. I help others and spread out a lot of sympathy. My life aim maybe is to serve the people.. But my weakness is that i forget about myself, my own needs. All my time is hold back for my friends and family. I am always there for people in trouble. Ready for any emergency. I make a lot of sacrifices just to be a good human, insyaAllah.. But i do realize that every woman has her needs, her longings and a destiny.. hoping that i won't loose myself in work or curing other people's souls.. I will have my own problems in my life..

Another problem is that i don't say my opinion when it's right and important to say it. People trample onto my soul if i always so kind and lovely and helpful. They will play on me. Though i should try to relax more and enjoy my life, i should not loose the gift that was given to me to help others. Not everyone is created this way... i am unique and rare! ~alhamdulillah..


Happiness is in my heart to stay.

♥ Master of My Emotions..

0 ♥ comments

Dear blog,

How do I change? If I feel depressed I will calm myself down. If I feel sad I will smile. If I feel ill I will double my labour. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions. And of course, all these are God's will - Allah s.w.t.

Dear blog,

Hari gembira untuk rakan sepejabat saya, Puan Tina. Dia telah mengkhabarkan berita gembira untuk dikongsi bersama saya. Dan semestinya saya juga ternanti²kan berita ini. I am even excited as she is. Hihi. Alhamdulillah dia berjaya menambah generasi. Generasi pertama bagi mereka pasangan suami isteri. Tahniah ye Tina. Saya pun turut gembira. Gembira macam yang pernah saya rasa dulu². Seronok rasanya. Saya tumpang gembira. Teringat waktu saya dulu. Seronoknya! Syukur alhamdulillah. Doakan saya pula seterusnya, insyaAllah.



Betapa bermaknanya penunjuk (tester) tu dalam hidup saya. Gambar ni pun saya rakam sejurus selepas test. Sampai sekarang saya wrap tester ni dan letak dlm handbag saya, saya bawa kemana² saja saya pergi. Walaupun saya selalu tukar² handbag saya, saya tetap akan bawa skali tester ni bersama saya. Sebab ini bukti Adib wujud dalam diri saya. Sebab saya nak rasa Adib sentiasa dekat dengan saya. Dan memang dia akan sentiasa di hati dan jiwa saya. Dan menunggu saya di syurga nanti, insyaAllah. Benarlah, harta yang tak ternilai adalah anak²..

Dear blog,

Eh tolonglah. Tolong buat kerja sendiri, jangan nak menunjuk depan saya! Saya buat kerja saya, sikit pun tak ganggu, anda nak dengki dalam diam itu urusan anda. Anda nak tunjukkan yang anda pun dapat kerja yang hebat (atau mungkin lagi hebat daripada apa yang saya buat), aduh, kesian sungguh saya rasa! Saya rasa kesian yang teramat, kenapa dia perlu minta tolong dan pandangan saya semata-mata nak khabarkan kat saya secara tak sengaja bahawa dia dapat kerja tu, yang lebih kurang macam saya dapat?? Seronok sangat gamaknya dapat buat kerja yang dah lama diidamkan tu. Ya Allah, tolonglah. Kenapa perlu ada orang sebegini rupa dalam hidup saya! Ya Allah, limpahkanlah kesabaran saya! Ya Allah, kenapa saya ikutkan rasa marah saya..


Memang dulu mungkin dia pernah mencipta kehebatan, tapi tak setiap masa kita di atas.. kalau betul awak hebat, sila selesaikan sendiri, jangan ganggu hidup saya, tolong. Kalau betul benar² hebat, kenapa tiada siapa yang iktirafkannya pun?? Saya sedih dan kesian dgn dia. Sibuk mencari identiti lagi, walaupun sepatutnya sekarang bukan masanya. Kesian.. anda perlukan pujian, pengiktirafan, untuk teruskan hidup anda. Sambil tu anda terpaksa mengaku sendiri kelebihan anda walhal tiada apa pun yang boleh dibanggakan sangat. (!) Astaghfirullahal'azim. Emosinya saya. Maafkan saya. Saya tak suka bila ada perasaan sebegini. Dah lama benar rasanya tak rasa macam ni. Ya Allah, saya taknak titik² hitam bertambah di hati saya.

Saya rasa geram hari ini. Kenapa saya perlu hadapi semua ini di hari Isnin? Saya terus ke surau secepat yang boleh. Saya perlu tenangkan diri saya. Saya perlu sejukkan muka dan anggota yang lain. Yang paling penting hati saya. Sejukkan hati yang rasa bagai tercucuk beratus jarum terus tetiba ada bintik²hitam muncul. Saya berdoa semoga hati saya bersih dan terus kenyal untuk berdepan dengan keegoan orang lain.

Saya tak tahu apalagi yang akan saya depani lepas ini. Mungkin saya perlu lebih positif? Sebenarnya, saya sudah tak selera untuk ambil tahu apa² berkaitan dengan dia lagi.. buleh? Cuma, saya harap dia tak datang ganggu saya sambil tunjukkan keegoan dia. Nampak baik, innocent tapi sebenarnya mungkin, tidak!

Ini kata² yang terlalu ikut perasaan. Maafkan saya. Beginilah resam dunia. Doakan semoga saya berjaya melawan rasa amarah saya ini.
