All the Sadness Around Us

There's so much depression going on around the world but it's not our right to determine which is worse off. What can be compared when the bottom line is that many innocent lives are lost out of green and power. One minute you're just playing on the beach or listening to the music in the plane, and then next minute..you're gone.

Despite the catastrophes that are happening around us, many are still spreading hate around like as though we don't need enough hate already. We can say that we're lucky we're not in a war zone country but who are we to say that we are lucky or even safe. Many also still choose to turn a blind eye over the things that are happening around them because they're not affected. Who would expect the Malaysians from our neighbouring country, to lose their lives travelling above a war zone area declared as 'safe' for travelling. When I first heard the news on facebook merely lesss than an hour after the disaster, I was in disbelief. I was thinking this must be a hoax. How can a land missile just shoot a plane carrying civilians in the sky just like that.

When I checked the television, it was breaking news but the news were so new that they were probably scrambling behind the scenes before they cover the media. 

What is even sadder when I read comments and there are still people who don't seem to understand the seriousness of what is going on around the world, choosing to be some kind of keyboard warriors. We need to start opening our eyes and imagining what if this happen to our loved ones. It's time for us to take stock of what we have and how thankful we are that we are not caught in those war zone countries where every day to live is a blessing. And how we're not on their plane. While anything can happen, it's not up to us to judge which event is more serious. Just think about  the innocent lives lost and dreams are broken, and how they are just like you and me but caught in an undesirable situation.

1st Week of Ramadhan 2014 & 1st Iftar with Classmates

Today marked the second week of the Ramadhan week where the majority of Muslim people fast for one month, prior to the celebration of Hari Raya. This month is rather different because it's the first time I actually spend my time at school when breaking fast. But the school was kind enough to remind the lecturers to give us time to break fast just about 15 minutes prior to coming to class as the class starts at 7pm.

The first day went alright but on the second day, I was hit by quite a bad headache and although I could still function as normal, the headache was annoying. When I got back home from school about 11 plus at night, I ate some food and then quickly took a nap. The second day it got better and I just a slight headache but it was fine. Now I'm okay. So much so, I can stand for one and half hour for cupcakes..sigh..go figure. I learn to NOT go to the cakeshop during the fasting month, haha. It's really terrible! The queue was one thing, but the volume of cupcakes they bought, my goodness. Never ever! haha..

Oh yes, I also had my first iftar (break fast meal) with my classmates :)



They're a really friendly and helpful bunch and I'm glad to be their classmates. Thank God for them.

So now after writing this post, will be going out to buy some cookies for my aunt and maybe one or two bottles for ourselves. 

If you're a fellow Muslim, have a good Ramadhan.

My Second Promotion Ceremony!

It was such great news when I went to office and then my colleague and my manager was all like so excited and I hadn't even time to put down the bag and they asked me to go over to them.

I couldn't believe my ears when I got news that I would be promoted..again! I've talked about this in my previous post so this is a follow up posts with some pictures during the ceremony.

So happy! Will continue to work hard..and hopefully get less earful from my manager too, haha.
