In Case You're Wondering Why...

Assalamu'alaykum my dearest fellas 💕

Hi :)

Bahasa Melayu lah ya, senang. hohoho
Alhamdulillah, being selected as a Taaruf Committee again untuk intake 2015/16. *wuwuwu suka suka*
Last time, I'm in Catering unit. This coming event, I'll be in Registration unit. Dua unit yang berbeza I tell ya. 

Induction & Prep - kami berkenalan. There're 10 of us and most of us are second year. I said most. Ya Allah, semua baik-baik sangat. uuuu  (May Allah bless y'all).  

The theme for last intake's taaruf program was from our unit! Alaa yang "The Glory of Islam starts with you" tu. Hmm macam tu lah time induction. Get to know people, reset mindset untuk start working, team building, then by evening of 2nd day, dah start get into business. 

Buat apa je? Banyak weyh sebenarnya. 
Meeting, meeting and meeting. Kami diberi handout menus, tentatif program untuk prepare mana untuk dinner, mana lunch and all. Then kami bahagi tugas. Siapa handle VIP, siapa handle mineral water, siapa handle pantry, handle makanan committee, makanan students and etc. 

Taaruf - VVIPs and VIPs' refreshments, students and committees' full course meal  three times a day, mineral water for students and at the rostrum, together with other types of job yang bukan in Catering pun. Like bila habis kerja Catering, we have to help the other units macam SPETA or PrepTech for instance.  

Masa intake 2014/15  which is my friends' intake, (ya, I'm a year advance because my foundation was only a year and theirs was two years). Juniors are sebaya, tapi ramai je yang panggil "kak". Tapi sebab tak larat nak cakap "weyy aku sebaya korang jee" and a lot more work to do, aku sahutkan aje. haha

Ok here's a confession to make. Kawan-kawan aku semua tahu masa foundation dulu aku jenis yang susah nak take part dalam activity society. Medcy pun sekadar nama je. Sumbangan apatah lagi participation pun aku tak pernah apart from main badminton dalam MEST [Medcy Sports Tournament]. itu pun masa final semester. One year packed gilos! Ok gebang. haha.. Aku try sign up untuk Taaruf committee for that intake pun sebab nak jumpa kawan-kawan aku. Bukan sebab nak menyumbang sangat pun. Huhu.. Tapi bila aku kenal, aku buat kerja dengan all the committee, I was like "wow, tahun depan boleh try lagi." Tolonglah, aku rasa bukan aku je yang macam 'attached to' if the other word to use is 'addicted to' for being the committee. Believe me, ramai yang dah jadi komiti akan reapply again next year. Ramai, tapi bukan semua. Bukan sebab event ni level universiti, tapi sebab pengalaman yang sumpah best. Sumpah best. And bila aku voice out yang aku nak jadi lagi untuk next intake, my roommate who knows me quite well since foundation cakap "setahu orang, Adib ni bukan jenis yang nak participate in many things, tapi kenapa untuk Taaruf ..? " 
IDK the answer haha, aku cuma boleh rasa. Dan rasa tu satisfying. 

gitulah ceritanya. 

REGIST (registration)
Induction & Prep - okay ni based on my observation. 
Regist ialah unit yang agak "paling busy" masa induction and prep time. But no worries, habis registration on first day which is the registration day, kerja budak-budak Regist habis dulu. Khalas! 

Liaise dengan mahallah authorities - untuk student placement. Liaise dengan OCD, OSC, finance - untuk macam-macam. Liaise dengan itu ini untuk itu ini. Prepare borang-borang, susun perjalanan ribuan new intake to make the process smooth. Last time, the head of this unit sangat tegas. Aku tengok seorang yang tegas la bro tu. Professionally working. Not only him, but all of them. Yelah, kita perlu kepala yang mantap. And Regist unit has too many important stuffs to play with. Not an easy work la I may say.  

Ohkayyy I need to ask Kak Hajra for more. :) 

Taaruf - First day of Taaruf. semua committee akan insomnia malam sebelum ni. Final touch on this, the last masterpiece on that and what not. Regist akan simulate the registration day, nights before the actual day. Biasanya SPETA akan ada satu part of the big hall yang bila students finished register, they have to take the umbrella, bag and Taaruf kit prepared by SPETA unit. Tak tidur malam diorang masa Prep. 

Habis registration, I believe kerja pun habis. Then tolong unit lain macam Catering and PrepTech. Maybe ada yang tanya "apa yang best nya?" .
Oh please, serving nearly thousand of people including the parents and helping other staffs in a big big event like this adalah sangat-sangat best to me. 
dan aku korbankan cuti berbaki dua minggu plus minus just for this. Ini kalilah~  

Kalau rajin, aku cerita lagi. kalau rajin. heh. :P

find me. hiks. 

even ada lagi sebulan, even komiti pun masih bercuti huhahuha.

Part Of My Eid '15

Assalamu'alaykum people of the world ♥

Eid is less than two days from now. Roads and high ways are filled with cars and other means of vehicle. Peoples are hoping to be safely arrived to their hometown from the city. 
Raya prep is getting to the max. Raya songs berkumandang di corong-corong radio. :P

I'm sitting at the front hall of my house, tryna write something that can boost my writing pattern and ways of arranging my thoughts into words. I'm done with my prayer and now wearing face mask while writing a nonsense post using my laptop on my lap. face mask? 
Konon raya nak muka flawless tanpa sebutir jerawat, ceh! (dream on,kan?) 

This time, raya will be celebrated with my dad's part of family. Last time, the eid was celebrated in my house where all my mum's siblings and relatives gathered here - penuh rumah aku. Well, the more the merrier, kan kan? *suka*

Lagi satu, raya kali ni lebih produktif la aku boleh kata. We made 4 types of raya cookies - Cornflakes cookies, Suji Rainbow cookies, Melting Moment / Swiss Tart and Pineapple tart. huha! 
My sister's not at home during most of Ramadhan last year, so the only 'sumber tenaga' left were my mum and me. We only managed to make Cornflakes and Tart Nenas only - yang lain kuih tunjuk. haha
This year, my so-called adik is here, helping me to make mum's raya cookies production more than the previous years as a dream come true. Alhamdulillah, we made it ! (gedik-gedik suka hati aku lah)
Sebelum dia enrolled in A-level lah masa untuk mengerah tenaga dia~

So here they are... kuih raya rumah ceq

Swiss Tart :)

Suji Rainbow Cookies :)

Will share the recipes later, :) 

Bibik Feveret.

SEVEN REMINDERS from a sinner.

Assalam 'alaykum. 

Monday - Ramadhan 19

This holy month of Ramadhan has come to more than its half. Tomorrow we'll start counting the blessing of the last ten nights of Ramadhan, attempting to obtain the night that is better than a thousand months. 

Alhamdulillah, I've been blessed with the chances to perform in the last eleven-ten days of this holy months and I'm really really really grateful. Cause usually I can't. hoho 
Keep praying so that we can perform really well, in the pink of health and strive in Ramadhan to make it our turning point - to be a better practicing Muslim onward.

Seven simple yet not so easy to do/not to do during Ramadhan:

1. Do not backbite people - especially when you're online. Be it Instagram or Facebook. Backbite people won't make you better than them anyway. If you like 'em, double tap. If you don't, scroll faster. Don't be such a hater.

2. Try to talk less - the more you talk, the more nonsense it can be. So shut the mouth. There's reason why your ears are two and your mouth is one.

3. Lower the gaze - If you're a man, this practice should be implemented asap. Because guys can see what girls don't if you know what I mean. *smirk* . Then if you're woman, lower the gaze can help the mouth to not to talk bad about someone you're looking at. Dosa perempuan banyak berasal dari lisannya. 

Let me give you a situation. 
You're wandering at a bazaar, looking for your craved food since sahoor. Ceh! Letting your eyes went wild, with women dressed like it's not Ramadhan or guys wearing shorts shorter than it should be or someone doing something you don't really understand what the geez of the actions and so on. You'll start to think dirty -  you'll start to feel annoyed - you'll be distracted from your Ramadhan goals!
Hence, lower the gaze then the mouth will behave.

4. Make the most of it - Ramadhan comes only once a year, bro. This year's could be your last Ramadhan. And its thirty days fly way too fast! Pahala pun berlipat ganda kan. Moga Allah izin :)

5. Turn yourself into a better version of you - Some Muslim do change their way of presentations during Ramadhan to respect the holy month. Some stay the way they are. It depends on individuals to make the change permanent or temporary - but the efforts of making the change is what matters. At least they tried, have you? 

6. Be friend with Quran -  Quran is a book/mushaf consisted of science and signs. There're history, legislation, cures, tranquilizers, ideas of knowledge and signals. There are two sources in Islam that if you hold on them as long as you live, you won't be astray; Al-Quran and As-Sunnah. This sentence may be cliche' for some people, but it is a guarantee made by Allah. 

7. Do not wait, do not hesitate, do not be afraid - of giving advice, of speaking good language, of reminding others. The words you said may be your witness of your action. 
Belum cukup baik~ Nak tunggu bila ya baru baik?
Yang cakap pun 2X5~ At least aku tak tunggu sampai 2X10 macam kau baru nak beringat-ingat.
Kubur masing-masing~ sebab kubur asing lah kita saling mengingati. dekat mahsyar nanti jumpa balik, jangan nak tarik-tarik ya? 

Little by little, change. 
Dramatically, its dangerous. abrupt withdrawal may occur. 
Sikit-sikit tapi tidak terlalu sedikit, ubah bearing, tukar orienteering, looking for better direction. 

Akhawat sinner.
