Salam...Marilah kita bersama-sama berdoa semoga Tuhan akan memberikan kesejahteraan dan memberikan kekuatan semula kepada our beloved Tok Det a.k.a Tun Dr. Mahathir (penulis tahu, tak semua sayangkan dia tapi penulis adalah seorang yang mengenang jasa!), yang kini sedang berehat di IJN selepas mengalami masalah sesak nafas akibat jangkitan paru-jangkitan selepas mengalami serangan jantung pada akhir tahun lepas. Penulis berharap Tok Det akan cuba untuk mengurangkan aktiviti-aktiviti yang dijalaninya sekarang.

Tok Det, biaq pilah, Tok Det kena rehat banyak-banyak. Kalau manusia itu bodoh, dia akan jadi cerdik bila dia dengaq kata atau dia mau dengaq kata orang. Tapi lani, ada orang tu terlalu bodoh sampai beruk pun jadi pandai kan?

TUA : Aku tak sihat

MUDA : Tanda kau dah dekat..

TUA : Memang, aku dekat! Dekat dengan waktu dan keadaan,

MUDA : Siapa cakap?

TUA : Keadaan..

MUDA : Kau lupa, aku sebahagian daripada waktu dan keadaan, aku adalah waktu dan keadaan!

TUA : Kau jual waktu, kau jual keadaan..

MUDA : Persepsi, itu semua persepsi.

TUA : Tapi, keadaan tak mencerminkan sebaliknya!

MUDA : Itu dah pun menunjukkan, kau dah tua…dah hampir waktu tahajud!

TUA : Tapi tidak secuai engkau!

MUDA : Cuai?

TUA : Kau relakan zaman mengambil semua!

MUDA : Itu khabar angin..khabar angin.

TUA : Demi masa, sesungguhnya manusia itu dalam kerugian, kecuali bagi mereka yang tahu.

Maka Muda terus hilang dalam kemudaannya dan hanyut dalam keadaan…

Salam..Dear Bacalah readers (If there are any!). I came across an interesting quotation by Martin Niemoller about the aggression and the torture that had been carried out by the Nazi armies during the painstaking period of World War II.

When the Nazis came for the communist,
I remain silent;
I was not a communist,

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat,

When they came for the trade unionist,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist,

When they came for me,
There was no one left to speak out.

I hope the quotation can be best described for the situation the Bloggers are facing currently.


Salam…TO all my fellow Bacalah readers (If there are any!). Today is my second day in CMCF (Communication and Multimedia Content Forum of Malaysia) as a research officer. It is quite ironic, a blogger working in a company that plays a role as a watchdog for KTAK, in monitoring all activity pertaining to bloggers!

I will write more, as soon as I have new stories to share with my fellow bloggers. As for now on, my pledge is to uphold the truth no matter how hard for people to swallow.

Rezeki ada di mana?Rezeki ada di sini sana..

Adalah sebahagian daripada itu,
Maka dengan gembiranya,
Aku mempunyai rezeki,

Maka Tuhan benar-benar Agung,
Dia Maha Mendengar,
Aku bersyukur,
Dan kepada Dia Syukur ku itu,

Maka itulah kisahnya..
