(which I don't have any clue at all of where and when it would be.just keep praying..). Let's make our best du'a and pray hard that Allah places me in a good school ( good: easy for me travel everyday, easy for me to travel back home (mums and dads') and near to my *ehem* future husband soon insyaAllah. plus, a place where I find PEACE. Ameen.)
Please make du'a ye everyone.. :-) May Allah bless.

Why I Keep Diaries....

Salam Alayk to all.

Would like to share something today- why I write diaries? Some people like, but some prefer not to write what they feel or what they experience in their daily lives. I choose the former since to me, writing a diary provides me some time to reflect on myself,  what has happened to me,  the kinds of people that I met and the sorts. All in all, it is such a reflection on my LIFE.

However, based on what I always do, I found out that writing a diary could not be done without feelings. Things that I write should come deep from my heart otherwise I won't be able to write. Not saying that I write well without any flaws- I just simply write, as long as the words are coming from my heart. That is what makes my fingers work (read: write).

The time I write something in my diary is a time for me to talk to myself, and connect to Allah. This is because the moment I start writing, only my heart speaks and only Allah hears. I love to include my du'a / prayers too, in each of my entry - a lot. Hence when I look back and re-read them, I could feel that I am actually 'speaking; to Allah. That's what I treasure most as far as keeping a diary is concerned. A therapy indeed!

I sometimes forget what I have written in my diaries..Not saying that they are not from my heart, but maybe because I simply wrote without deep thinking. They are merely feelings that are turned into words.

A RELIEF.. Yes, I normally feel a bit relieved after  letting everything out of my chest - in a form of a diary entry. The problem gets lighter, the burden seems to disappear, sometimes. No one knows, no one listens to me. But what keeps me moving is - Allah is always up there, waiting for me to plead. Supplications. Du'a (in the form of written words)-A great way to get connected to Allah, other than solat and reciting Al-Quran. Alhamdulillah...

All in all, I am not urging you to write a diary, but I'm just sharing what I personally feel about keeping a diary. There are many other ways to keep you calm when the time is hard and to share the joyous moments in your lives. You choose you way. I have found mine. Talk to myself first (and Allah) through my writing then only I share with the ones I trust and love. A human being, I am.  :)

Disclaimer: This is based on my personal view, nothing to do with facts. =)
p.s: I don't write everyday.  I write in books/on paper that I could reach whenever I don't bring my diary/microsoft word.

I used to be 'them'
And now
I am stepping
Standing in front of them.

this teaches me the meaning of

Make Us Grateful To You Ya Allah.....

Alhamdulillah... Alhamdulillah..Alhamdulillah...

Subhanallah, alhamdulillah, Allahu akbar..
O Allah.. Make me amongst Your most grateful servants ya Allah.
There's no word to describe how grateful I am to You.

For everything you have planned.
For everything You have granted me.
For everything You have given to me.
For everything You have decided for me.
For every tear that reminds me of You.
For every moment that brings me back to You.
For every test that makes me closer to You.
For every second of making me a servant of You.
For everything..Just everything..

Thank You, all praises to You for the countless blessings....

In Surah Ibrahim, verse 34 Allah says..:

And He gave you of all that you asked for, and if you count the Blessings of Allâh, never will you be able to count them.

And in Surah Annahlu, verse 18, Allah says again..:

And if you would count the graces of Allâh, never could you be able to count them. Truly! Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

These are the answers. I tried to count all of His blessings on me but I failed. :')

Reflecting on my past, I should have been more grateful than I am today.
Thinking about what Allah has granted me, I should have become the most obedient servant of Him.
Realising how much sins I have committed, I do not deserve all these....


Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the Most Glorious, and after all, 



Alhamdulillah tsumma alhamdulillah.

On the threshold of....

Salaaam to all.

First of all.
God, please forgive me when I whine.

Last January, upon knowing that I was going to start a 12-week yet-to-predict life in a new place,
I felt:

Quite not ready

mixed feelings.....

Ala kulli haal, I HAVE TO FACE IT. No matter how..

And alhamdulillah.
It has been more than a month, and I have learnt quite a lot- generally about how a teacher's life is both at school and after school . (or to be precise how a PRACTICUM teacher's life is- I have to mention this because the term starting with 'P' here carries some difference to your title, to a large extent.) This is life~

I feel good.
I feel bad. Really bad that I sometimes I broke down.

Sometimes, I don't even feel good teaching the subject.
I have tried, but sometimes things just didn't turn out well.
NEVER MIND. I still have tomorrows, insya-Allah.

Sometimes, I have to 'abandon' the formality- Curriculum Specs, Syllabus etc.
and I believe in FLEXBILITY. flexibility.



Why did I choose English?



- seen at Fulham Cross Girls School & Language College, London -


O Lord, please
Forgive me when I whine....

After all, this is just the threshold, I have yet to enter the real world....


:La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah:

School and me so far

Salam Alayk=)

Alhamdulillah. I'm now blending myself in the reality of  a teacher's life. So far so good, with so many things- good and bad, yes- but Alhamdulillah I'm now in the midst of the processes to make me stronger. Ya Qawiy, make me strong and keep me steadfast in this challenging field..... 


Today, we had our cross-country race.
Here are some of the pictures of us.

the briefing and warm-up session

with them =) before leaving the stadium


Nothing much to say

May Allah grant them good health, peaceful minds, and success in their upcoming test. 

p.s: Tahniah Rumah Hijau =)

Assalamualaykum =)

Alhamdulillah I am now in the midst of my 5-day 'mid-practicum briefing' in the college- This gives me a 1-week break from school.

Alhamdulillah, I have been in school for 4 weeks; indeed a critical period for me to just adapt myself with a lot of things- managing students, getting to know the teachers and staff, getting used to facing traffic jam, etc. Alhamdulillah, hopefully all will get better as time goes by.. 8 weeks to go , insyaAllah.

Alhamdulillah Allah has gifted our family with a new member, born on the day I left my kampung and came back to IPBA. Ahamdulillah Facebook allows me to see her from afar. =) But she is now having jaundice, insyaAllah may Allah heal..Allah is the BEST Healer..

Puteri Sofea with her little sister..

Puteriku Sayang,

Disebalik bersih wajah mu disebalik tabir diri mu 
Ada rahsia agung tersembunyi dalam diri 
Itulah sekeping hati yang takut pada ilahi 
Berpegang pada janji mengabdikan diri 

Malu mu mahkota yang tidak perlukan singgahsana 
Tapi ia berkuasa menjaga diri dan nama 
Tiada siapa yang akan boleh merampasnya 
Melainkan kau sendiri yang pergi menyerah diri 

Ketegasan mu umpama benteng negara dan agama 
Dari dirobohkan dan jua dari dibinasakannya 
Wahai puteriku sayang kau bunga terpelihara 
Mahligai syurga itulah tempatnya

It's a matter of TIME =)


Sudah terlalu lama blog ini sunyi sepi tidak ber-update. Tiada sebab yang khusus untuk dinyatakan.=)

Alhamdulillah, life is getting much more interesting with lots of things going on. Alhamdulillah, Praise be to Allah for I have finished my studies in the UK, and now I'm back for good. Another semester left to finish my degree at Teacher Training Institute. (I'm doing a UK-Malaysia twinning programme). I was excited knowing that I am back to see my family and relatives in Malaysia tercinta, though it is undeniable that I doubt if I could go back to UK in the future.. All the good memories remain in my heart, with the hope that I could go back to that beautiful place with my loved ones in the future, ameen...

I am now in the midst of my final semester of my degree programme- getting ready and gearing up to start my life as a trainee teacher at a school in Kuala Lumpur. My practicum will begin in two day's time, Allahumma yassir wala tu'assir ya Kareem..Please make du'a for me and all of my coursemates.. (May Allah bless you and answer your du'a)

How time flies, subhanallah. I still remember the day I first arrived here- full of tears and fear, with a bit of excitement upon certain good things I found in this very place called IPBA. It was like 5 years back- 2007. Yesterday, we collected all the assignments we did over our Foundation years (July 2007-August 2009) from the B.ed Office. Subhanallah, walhamdulillah. La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah. Looking at those essays / coursework made me feel grateful to Allah for He is the One who gave me strength, patience and steadfastness to continue this jihad (study). I could not believe that I went through all the difficulties and the sorts upon achieving what I was expected to do. Though I'm not in the group of top scorers in my batch, I am still grateful that He gives me strength to continue this path... (Doing English is not really my first choice, but I love to be a teacher/pendidik)

Today we got our last semester's exam and assignment results. Alhamdulillah 'ala kulli hal. The lecturer in charge of  Examination Board  (who used to teach me 5years back) 'read' the results to me and said something to me before I left the room. "Ema, I'm still waiting for 'this' (showing something in her hand) from you". I just gave a smile, not knowing how to respond to that. =) And it was actually a wedding invitation card from a friend of mine. Insya-Allah, soon when the time comes, (which I don't even know yet) I will surely let you know , Ma'm. (Bisik hati).Allah knows best. =) Please make du'a. 

Sometimes we need our own 'wait time' to look back and forward- to reflect and to plan. But one thing for sure that we need to bear in mind is - Allah is the BEST PLANNER and DOER. Allah boleh buat apa saja untuk hamba-Nya. Most of the time, Allah pleases us with things that we don't even ask for. Subhanallah, Walhamdulillah. So who are we to have su'u dzhon (buruk sangka) to Allah. Leaving things to Allah, redha , and keep putting faith and trust in Him really makes our days blissful Insya-Allah.. (This applies to anything we face and we do in this temporary life). 

May Allah of us be blessed, ameen. =)
