Nak temu jodoh? Mulakan dengan mengemas rumah....

Mengemas rumah adalah satu tanggungjawab kita sebagai seorang manusia. Bagaimana mungkin kita akan ditemukan dengan jodoh jika bilik tidur kita bersepah dan hanya dikemas seminggu sekali? Lebih teruk lagi, berbau busuk.

Mulakan dengan rajin mengemas bilik tidur dan bilik mandi selalu. Kemudian ruang tamu dan dapur. Kebersihan adalah separuh dari iman.

Apa itu iman?

Iman adalah percaya dengan yakin kepada Allah. Kita yakin yang Allah sedang memerhati dan Allah akan membalas segala tindakan kita. Apabila rumah bersih, barulah ada keselesaan, bila sudah selesa, kita akan rajin beribadah. Bila rajin beribadah, barulah kita rajin berdoa, apabila rajin berdoa, YAKIN Allah akan makbulkan. Barulah Jodoh kita akan menuju kita mengikut GPS yang betul.

Ada kata-kata yang menggelikan hati dimana lelaki-lelaki bujang mengatakan bila sudah berumahtangga nanti, isteri akan menjaga rumah dan makan minum mereka. Bagaimana mungkin akan mendapat isteri yang rajin dan disiplin mengemas rumah jika lelaki tersebut mengemas bilik 3 bulan sekali? Orang pembersih pasti tertarik dengan orang pembersih. Jika ada yang sebaliknya, kemungkinan besar salah seorang memang mahu berubah untuk menjadi pembersih kerana penat menjadi pengotor.

Pendek kata, Jodoh akan datang bila kita betul-betul bersedia.

Kita tidak akan tahu bila dan dimana akan ditemukan. Tetapi yang pasti, sebaik sebelum dipertemukan dengan JODOH kita, kita sudah menjadi rajin mengemas, suka menolong orang dalam kesusahan, sentiasa bersedekah, selalu senyum, berbuat baik pada ibu bapa dan keluarga. Mengambil berat akan orang disekeliling kita dan sebagainya.

Allah memerhati samada kita bersedia atau tidak untuk menggalas tanggungjawab besar dalam hidup kita iaitu membina keluarga dan membawa mereka ke Jannah bersama-sama.

Oleh itu, Jom mula kemas rumah!

5 Signs that He is The One

#1 You feel calm when you talk to him or look at him.

The first look can be deceiving, sometimes instant attraction does not equal to love. It is more like an infatuation. It is crucial to be able to identify if it starts with 'like' which can lead to love. You are infatuated if you feel crazily attracted at first sight and you find the attraction slowly diminishes over time.

He is the one when you find yourself at ease whenever you talk to him or look at him. But of course the feelings has to be mutual.

#2 He respects you.

He takes care of your feelings and aware of the things that he can or cannot say. He is brutally honest  yet polite to you.He respects your family and your friends too.

 #3 Both of you share the same values.

 A successful relationship has to start with having embrace the same values. A respectable woman is for a respectable man and vice versa. If family is your priority, then it is more likely you will be attracted to a man who prioritises the same.


#4  Both of your parents agree on your relationship.

Your parents give their blessings to you and the guy that you are eyeing or going to marry and vice versa. Why is this important? Yes, it does not mean that you will not face problems in the future, but it will assist both of you to get through the problems together well.

#5  He wants you to be his full-time companion a.k.a wife.

He knows that he is into you by asking your hand in marriage. How on earth can a man show that he respects you if it is not by asking you to marry him? He expresses his seriousness and is ready to take the responsibility.

When a man wants to love you responsibly, he is the One.

  Remember, love comes in a package and it consists of....

The agreement of two hearts
The Oneness of mission
The Compatible Personalities
The Decisiveness of both parties...

Then you have found the One....

Alhamdulillah  All Praise is to Allah...

Six Thinking Hats- Decision Making Problem Solving Tool

Our college embraces the knowledge seeking culture and we are known as the Imperia Nation. In every general monthly meeting, staff are given the chance to share knowledge. I grabbed the opportunity by sharing with others on one of the famous decision making and problem solving tools known as Six Thinking Hats.

This tool entails the main element which is known as 'Parallel Thinking' and it was introduced by Edward DeBono way back in 1985.

What is Parallel thinking? It is when at any moment or point of time, everyone is looking at the same direction.

Why parallel thinking?
In meetings and discussions, people tend to have their own way of thinking and preference. Therefore this tool helps everyone to look at the same direction at one point of time.

So why the Six Colours?
The Six Colours of hats represents six types of thinking, also the hats tell directions of thinking.
Each hat can be taken off or put -on. The main point here is to think outside of our habitual thinking.
But remember, the hats do not represent categories of people, some might say 'he is a green hat thinker'. On the contrary, green represents the thinking style not the thinker. Also, it is a constructive form of showing off better way of thinking.

The Six Colour Hats (A Snapshot)

 Blue:control & organization of thinking
White: objective facts & figures
Red: emotions & feelings
Yellow: hope, positive & speculative
Green: creativity, ideas & lateral thinking
Black: cautious & careful

Unity in diversity

My great grandfather crossed the ocean from Bangalore..
In Malaya, married to a beautiful Ceylonese lady whom he'd adore..
My late grandfather, gentle and soft-spoken met a lovely hakka lady..
Built a family and there was my daddy..
Papa,  a handsome Sino Indian man married a very pretty and loving Malay lady..
They had twins and a younger baby..
Had their ups and downs yet they managed it well with the help of the Almighty...
Yes, my twin sister is married to a Bruneian..
And myself to a Singaporean..
But we are proud to be Malaysian..
Not because of Malaysia..
But because of this land has brought our grandparents and parents together from other parts of Asia....
Our differences that's what brings us together..
So that we could learn from one another..
This correlates to a verse in the Noble Qu'ran for us to ponder..
Translation by  Yusuf Ali:
O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

True success vs delusion

You might earn a fortune,
You might live in a mansion,
You might drive a BMW,
You might have many friends who love you,
You might live an upbeat life,
You might have a beautiful wife,
But think again,
All of the above are merely accessories of delusion,
The true dress for success is to be able to take care of your parents with patience and passion,
Those accessories will deteriorate and vanish,
The love n care we have for our parents will forever flourish,
Allah The Almighty will ensure that tranquility sets in our hearts,
Even when we have problems we will never fall apart..

Ujian saringan HIV untuk kebenaran berkahwin tidaklah serumit yang disangkakan..

Saya bersama ibu saya ke Pejabat Agama Islam Daerah untuk mendapatkan maklumat yang lebih jelas tentang prosedur mendapatkan kebenaran berkahwin. Diantara persoalan saya ialah tentang menjalani ujian saringan HIV. Saya sangat menghargai penjelasan seorang pekerja wanita dikaunter yang telah bersungguh-sungguh memberikan jawapan kepada persoalan saya. Tetapi, pekerja wanita itu memberitahu saya lebih baik saya pergi ke klinik kerajaan secepat yang mungkin.Ini kerana mungkin akan memakan masa yang lama untuk mendapatkan giliran diuji darah untuk tujuan mendapatkan kebenaran kahwin. Tiba-tiba saya jadi panik.

Saya dan ibu pun bergegas ke klinik kerajaan yang berhampiran. Setibanya di Klinik kerajaan di Seksyen 7, Shah Alam, saya terus ke tingkat 1 dan mendapatkan borang, kemudian saya menulis nama saya di kaunter di tingkat 1 itu.

Seterusnya, saya ke tingkat bawah dan mendapatkan nombor giliran. Lebih kuraang 15 minit, saya ke kaunter pendaftaran dan membuat bayaran sebanyak RM1 sahaja.

Kemudian, saya ke Kaunter B dan menyerahkan borang saya. Lebih kurang 20 minit kemudian saya di panggil dan di suruh masuk ke sebuah bilik dan darah saya diambil. Jangan takut, bukannya di suntik, hanya cucukan kecil di jari. Pheww....rupanya sekejap sahaja proses nya.

Dalam masa 30 minit lagi, baru nama saya dipanggil dan salinan borang ujian saringan di kembalikan kepada saya. Agak melucukan kerana saya terpinga-pinga sambil bertanya kepada Jururawat yang memberikan saya borang tersebut ' ini sahaja ke kak? dimana keputusannya?'. Jururawat itu tersenyum sambil berkata 'itu sahaja, kamu boleh lampirkan salinan tersebut semasa membuat permohonan, kamu sudah boleh balik'....dengan masih terpinga-pinga, saya dan ibu berlalu pergi.

Pengalaman menjalani ujian saringan HIV tidaklah menakutkan dan merumitkan. Malah para pekerja di klinik kerajaan di seksyen 7 itu semuanya ramah dan mesra. Membuatkan saya tidak berasa tertekan :-)

Jika anda ingin menjalani ujian saringan HIV, bolehlah ke klinik tersebut.
