Funny!


I found this book at the library and my eye catch the funny cartoon cover.

I bet you will agree with me that this book is really funny and interesting to read.

Yup! It is not a heavy reading and I suggest to those who having big headache and facing the most tension life in their day try to read this book.

I can say that some of the jokes are really wise and make me think.

Here, I put one of the funniest humour from the book. ( I am smiling writing this!)

BRUSH YOUR TEETH, PLEASE

It had been a while since the children of the village played a trick on Pak Him.

One day as Pak Him was conducting his usual classes in Qur'an reading and moral behavior, some of his students in the back row began to snicker.

Pak Him knew they were hatching a mischievous plan, but he continued teaching as though he was none the wiser.

Towards the end of class Pak Him asked the students if they had any questions. seeing that this was an opportunity, one of the miscreants at the back of the class raised his hand. "O teacher, would it be in conformity with the Islamic principles of good behavior if one were to eat in the bathroom?"

The student who asked the qustion knew that it was not, but he wanted to show his friends that he was able to confound the clever teacher.

Pak Him smiled wryly and answered, " Of course you may eat in the bathroom my boy, but brush your teeth before you come out or people may think you were eating shit."

Haha so funny!
There are also illustrations added altogether with some of the stories which make the book is a really fun book to read.

The book had been written by Syed ali Tawfik Al-Attas and published by MPH publishing.
You can buy it by spending only RM12 for the book.

So long for now, and enjoy reading..

I Met Him!

I am thankful to Allah for giving me a chance to meet and hear the speech of the most known ulama' Prof Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi.
The speech had been translated beautifully into Malay by Ust Ghani ( YDP SHURA) at the Masjid Negeri, Shah Alam.
Prof Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi firstly shown his respect to our beloved country and told the audience that he had came to visit Malaysia about 8 to 9 times and the first time he came was with the invitation by Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Prof Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi then told us that the story about bird building their nest outside the cave and the spider web being build at the mouth of the cave when Rasulullah s.a.w. was hiding from the Quraish actually have no significance evidence.
Then, he told us the Muslim should be together in Jamaah which is stronger than we are being separated away. Muslim must hold their religion tightly and follow what had been told in the Holy Quran and hadith.
To be truth, I still regretting myself of not being able to understand Arabic very well since I dispirited to further studying the language after getting C for Arabic (PMR). The speech must be said beautifully in Arabic and it is very poor of me cannot understand it in the genuine language.
Prof Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi at the end of his speech had been asked to say some "Doa' " (pray) for the Muslim. It was a very special moment where everybody in the mosque are silent and listening to the sheikh doa' then together we said amin for each doa'. It is indeed make me want to cry and again I am praising to Allah of giving me the chance to meet one of the most known Muslim scholars.
However, after the doa' I have to rush back to my booth which I have to take care off. I cannot see him near enough! (poor of me!)
p/s: It was great if we can met an ulama'! So, how about you?

I am Malaysian

This is just a piece of opinion of me about Malaysia.
I am indeed a Malaysian. I born here and live here until now ( haha no chance to go another country..) But still I believe my lovely country is the best place that I should stay.
Most of us praise their own country.. It is normal and usually based on our long experience living there.. and I am part of those people who love their own country.
However, I am sad with those who still believe that our Malaysian Chinese community and our Indian community does not feel the same like us the Malays.. Hello.. They also part of us! They are Malaysian and I believe that they also have the same feeling as I am about my beloved country.
To be truth, when I am still schooling at SMK Sultan Yussuf, I made friends with all races. Yap Wai Sean, Edwind, Bala, Viki and me have good time together. We purely being friends like there are no barrier between us.
It is different here in the university.. All the races made their own community. They only believes their own race. We are not mingle around among the races and I am confused why does this happen when we become adult.
Where is the pure heart that we have when we sit together and eat together at the school?
We never have bad impression about other races in school.
I love my Chinese chemistry teacher and still looking forward of seeing him.
I love my Indian history teacher and still amaze with a lot of facts that she told me.
I am having great time spending years at Sultan Yussuf!
How come we are being separated too much at the university?
Purely from my heart, I hope we as Malaysian should trust each other and shape the future of our beloved country, Malaysia.

Saya Pun Melayu ( I am Malay)


I am searching this book (Saya Pun Melayu) at the bookfair (PWTC) last year, but failed then I forgot about it.. Especially when I loaded my bookshelf with other books.

Alhamdulillah after about a year.. I was able to read it! Praise to Allah and thanks to Syud!

I am really exited of reading the book eventhough it is a bit outdated with another book from Zaid Ibrahim had been published. However this is a piece of item that I as young generation reads. It does contain a point of view that we should know and understand further.

I am reading the Malay version since this the genuine language being used to write the book. Yes it has it own value when he write Saya Pun Melayu in Bahasa originally.

With Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah foreword (kata pengantar), the book started with Razaleigh describing the political crisis that happen in the country should be handled not by UMNO alone but all of the rakyat should also involve.

Razaleigh also believe that the younger generation especially those who live at the villages and those who are underprivileged should read it. Besides, Razaleigh want the youth know how the poor people also can survive and challenge for a better future.

Allow me to write in Malay, indeed I am A Malay too.

Pandangan Sisi tentang Buku ini yang menarik:

Saya akan memulakan pandangan sisi ini dengan memberikan isi kandungan buku ini agar difahami oleh anda..

Isi Kandungan:

1. Pendahuluan

2. Bab 1: Letak Jawatan Sebagai Menteri

3. Bab 2: Ketuanan Melayu

4. Bab 3: Siapa Melayu?

5. Bab 4: Raja, Perlembagaan dan Maruah Melayu

19. Bab 18: Sumbangan kaum Bukan Melayu

20. Bab 19: Politik dan Moral

21. Bab 20: Pemimpin yang Saya Hormati

22. Penutup

Pendahuluan buku ini dimulai oleh Zaid dengan memberitahu pembaca bahawa beliau bukan seorang penulis semulajadi (natural) dan ini memang satu permulaan merendahkan diri beliau yang saya anggap agak menarik. Pendahuluan merupakan cara beliau memberitahu pembaca tujuan utama beliau menulis buku ini. 4 tujuan utama beliau menulis buku ini ialah:

1. Meningkatkan minat mebaca di kalangan Melayu.

2. Mengharapkan Melayu mengekalkan semangat toleransi dan sederhana.

3. Demokrasi negara kita adalah demokrasi 'kangkung'

4. Mahu Anak Muda memahami bahawa tidak ada jalan mudah untuk mencapai kejayaan.

Perkara paling menarik pada pandangan saya ialah apabila beliau meberitahu pembaca bahawa isteri beliau memberitahunya bahawa tidak pernah isterinya melihat beliau (Zaid) dalam keadaan sangat muram dan tidak gembira sebelum menjadi menteri.

Pembaca juga didedahkan dengan sejarah politik negara yang diberikan oleh pandangan sisi beliau. Zaid lebih banyak mencampur aduk cerita yang terkadang mungkin menyebabkan pembaca kurang jelas dengan tajuk yang beliau sampaikan. Namun, mungkin itulah teknik penulisan beliau yang mungkin sedikit menonjolkan siapa dirinya yang sebenar.

Bagi saya, memahami penulisan beliau merupakan satu langkah yang baik untuk memahami situasi politik semasa ketika beliau meletakkan jawatan dan pandangan politik seorang yang bernama Zaid Ibrahim.

Pemerhati politik yang lain mungkin sudah lama menghadam buku ini namun mungkin lebih ramai pembaca yang kurang meminati politik belum membaca tulisan beliau, nasihat saya adalah anda perlu mencuba untuk membacanya kerana tidak rugi malah sangat berbaloi.

Antara lain beliau turut meletakkan beberapa gambar beliau yang dijadikan sebagai selitan buat buku ini.

Secara keseluruhan, Zaid Ibrahim merupakan seorang yang mempunyai pendirian dan saya sangat menyukai karakter sisi beliau ini dimana dalam keadaan politik kini di mana manusia mudah mengabaikan pendirian mereka hanya demi kepentingan politik adalah amat ramai. Berani saya nyatakan pelajar politik media sewajarnya sudah membaca buku beliau ini.

p/s: The cover does have it's own attraction! Do you agree with me?
