Goodbye Good Man~

On Saturday we have farewell party for Joshua, the assistant manager at our company. Hes been working in the company for almost 12 years but he choose to grab opportunity and take challenge to work at other place. I remember the first time I met him two years ago during my first day at the company, with the BIG and most welcome smile he said "Hi, Im Joshua, welcome to the company!".

Joshua is the boss that  is the leader. He loved and respected by all staff and workers. He is very humble, caring, friendly and helpful. As the boss, at work when we do mistakes, he can be very truculent and his voice is loud, but just for a day to recover. Also he never angry to a limit that can pierce heart that his sub can repent without feel discourage. Simple explanation, the sub enjoy working with him with respect and love as boss. Even when the news that he going to quick spread, many feel sad and hope he will just stay. 

Working with him is an advantage because he give his best in every project. As junior in the industry, we always seek his advice about processing, machine, manpower and etc. Always he never disappoint us and he never sting to share his knowledge and experience. I remember there is a day when we ask his opinion about the best way of mixing in large processing, with a kind heart as senior he explain thoroughly this and that. Not enough with that he offer to bring us to visit a bioreactor that miles away from the office and that was my first time visit other branch of the company. 

In office he always cheer-up situation, making jokes, share new info and he himself is always in happy mood. As the top in the office with more revenue, he is the source where we asked for sponsorship. He simply donates RM50-100 for a party, bread and crackers for lunch and chocolate bar that he stored in the ice box. Always there will be funny ways to ask for the sponsorship, anyway the big idea its not about money but more to happy interaction and the happy memories. 

Joshua trademark is the companies car that he use, which also the most popular car in the company. It is a Maroon land Cruiser that was inherited from many generation of bosses and aged about 20 years old. The first user is our director, passed to his nephew, other bosses and finally go to Joshua. It extremely rugged that after many years it still OK even-though the appearance is KO. His car always become jokes for us, how we can recognize it from far away,  how we know the sound and how it is Joshua's. Using that car I remember he sent me home twice. When I said its ok to just drop me at the bus stop, he refused and instead send me till at front of my house. 

Joshua is a business man that he have a phone shop. There is a time when he do sales for some item in his shop and he bring some necklaces, bracelet and kid watch to the office. Many buy form him with very big discount up to 70% which I dont think can pay off the real value. haha.. 

Days before he leave, I can see he is quite sad to leave us. He avoid for a long chat, he make jokes that seems not suitable and he never mad. Its been 12 years with the company, (I think) it is his first job, and he start when the factory is 0. Off course there were bitter-sweet memories along the years and I think it is a hard decision to leave the company. Anyway he made his decision and it is worth as the other party offer MUCH better. That teach me that sometimes we need to make a hard decision, a courage to move forward, quickly grab an opportunity and willingness to take challenge in order to make self-improvements. 

To Joshua, thank you very much for your kind help,  for the sweet memories and of all we gonna really miss you. Im very grateful and glad that as rookie I have learned many things from you. Good luck at the new place and wish you a happy new life. =)

Happy Eid Adha

Alhamdulillah for Allah grace that we still alive to celebrate Eid Adha this year. Eid adha or Eid Qurban is Muslim celebration in honour of prophet Ibrahim for his devotion to Allah's command to sacrifice his first born son Prophet Ismail. When being asked by his father about Allah's command Ismail answer with maturity and willingness to sacrifice his own life for His religion "Father, do what you have been commanded. You will find me, Insha'Allah, to be very patient". With Allah willing Ismail then replaced with lamb for the scarification and both the prophets passed the test.

"O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (son)!" So We gave him the good news of a boy, possessing forbearance. And when (his son) was old enough to walk and work with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I see in vision that I offer you in sacrifice: Now see what is your view!" (The son) said: "O my father! Do what you are commanded; if Allah wills, you will find me one practising patience and steadfastness!" So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead, We called out to him saying: O Ibraheem! You have indeed fulfilled the vision; surely thus do We reward those who do good. Most surely this was a manifest trial. And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice. And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations. "Peace and salutation to Abraham!" Thus indeed do We reward those who do right. Surely he was one of Our believing servants. 
[Quran 37: 100-111]

Hmmm... Dearest son, own life are what the prophet willing to sacrifice for devotion to Allah. Surely we are not comparable with the prophet since they are maksum and siddiq that all their action and dreams are only the truth. Still we need to reflect and take lesson of the history and relevantly apply in our modern life. Ask ourself, what the least we can sacrifice for the sake of ummah and Islam? Money? Time? Strength? Or anything we can contribute? 

Let skip the answer and move on to Muslim issues nowadays. Egypt, Rohingya, Syria and Palestine.  It maybe too complicated to know each detail but good enough if we alert that our innocent brothers and sisters are slaughtered there. Innocent kids, elders, historical places and Islam's honor were abused and killed without mercy. It is now not just about war among religion but more to humanity that even the non Muslim shows concern regarding the issues. So what about us that bound in the name of Muslim brotherhood?

Palestine, lets care and act

The kind footballer do care. May Allah bless..

Back to Question of what we can sacrifice? Speaking as an average person these might be the little things that can be done.
  1. Money & strength:  An average person might not contribute much but the sum of all us can be very huge.
  2. Time: Taking time to learn and alert of what happening can motivate individual to understand and contribute more. 
  3. Knowledge: With IT generation internet playing a big role in curving the mind of peoples. I respect some of the so called keyboard warrior that use their knowledge, intellectual and skill to give awareness and educate internet users worldwide. Still be careful of the doubted source.
  4. Doa: It certainly will be very beneficial physical and spiritually. To Allah we seek for help, as He is the Almighty God that has all power, the most Merciful and the most Wise. 
  5. Boycott: It is a simple thing to do that can give huge impact to our enemy. Start with ourself as an example and then slowly imply with family, friends and those who close to us. 

Little scarification by not eating or using boycott product, 
might save a life of our brother

Remember them ALWAYS, In Shaa Allah, Amin..

I visit a blog and the banner is 'we care Palestine, boycott Israel product'. His blog is like mine that write anything generally and more like a diary but still the main banner is about love Palestine. That shows how he care about Palestine and he want to remind anyone not to forget Palestine and what the least we can do. I respect that and how that small banner can move heart and educate people. Like him, me too want to change my main banner to 'love Palestine' and to show that I care about them.  In Shaa Allah it will become my reminder and encourage me to care about them always. Amin..

So for Eid Qurban this year, reflect of what we can contribute to Islam and how we could help our brothers and sisters. Hopes the little thing we do is helpful and the sincerity can reach any heart to contribute and care more.

We Say "10Q 4 Ur VisiT!'

Few days ago, sis come to visit us. Alhamdulillah, she arrived safely and she was here for 6 days. The 6 days are so meaningful for us and become another story in my life. Thank you Allah for giving me another chance to meet sis,to be able eat her cook, to be able chat with her, being nagged by her, another present and another argument during the 6 days. Alhamdulillah!

Ok, just what sis do at our house?

Shes nagging, Nagging and NAGGING!
"Why these things not here?"````
"Why you not put it there?"
"Dont you notice your instant noodle has expired?"
"Did you bought all the food stock to give to the charity?"
"Update this and that..."
"Think about this and that..."
"Its time to shalat, go shalat!"........................."Its subuh, WAKE UP!!!!!"
"etc, etc, etc & bla bla bla......"

Shes cooking
Fried Chickens & Sauteed Eggplant
The fried chickens was marinated with salt, honey and grated ginger... The chickens was over-burned and taste bitter, the sauteed eggplant is all black. Anyway, I enjoy the fried chickens but will never forget how sis fry it!

Salted Sliced Sausage and Yam Soup
After a very long time, I really enjoy her cook! The Salted Slices Sausage is the recipe that mum tough us and it was delicious! Yam soup is combination of PAMA instant mee hoon, some spices and yam cubes, it also amazingly delucious! Yam, yam , yummy~ =)
I help her making the soup and I learned that when making yam soup use pan that has cover. So after the water is boiled, cover the pan and it will only take few minutes for the yam to soak and soft, or else it can take hour for the yam to soak.

The sausage, only these left when I take the pic

Chickens Rice
Sorry, Im not very impressed with the result but I agree it is 100x better compare to my cooking skill. hehe.. The rice was much oily but and weak chickens flavor. The chickens was very delicious but just like another delicious fried chickens. The soup was not bad but much differ from what made by professional. When I asked and suggest that she use chickens cube, she answer that its all because the sup bunjut not aromatic and saaid chickens cube is all MSG.

The chicken rice =)

Sis, sorry for the rude comment. I just being sincere and hope you can improve your cooking skill.
Peace (- _-)V

We went shopping for what mum asked and what granny need. Dried fish, anchovies, browning sugar, maruku miller, present for her pupils, etc. Another day sis and aunt went as early 6am shopping at pasar minggu. Congrats to them, I rather at home. hehe.. 

Cats and dogs
This is what I remember she said to them
Labu: "Quite a unique soprano voice, he so heavy and a feet biter"
Olen: "She really a Queen, the face so innocent but she the real bandit"
Monsta: "He all black cat, including the lips. The eyes so beautiful and he is very polite"
Troy: "Momy just where you want to put your kids?"
Troy's generation: "Shumaker, konti, helmet and poll.. funny name"
Dogs: While the dogs were cutely stretching and scratching, sis say  "Help me! help me! look at the dogs, he gonna bite me!" and then she continuously recite doa. Just dont know what doa she recite, but the dogs dont really care about her presence and not barking.

The most sincere present from my cats

Sis gave foods to them all and thus the cats love her and the dogs not treat her as stranger. The cats even give her present of appreciation. She got her computer mouse all bitten! =3

During the farewell, like always I hate being left because it feel so lonely. I love my family and wish to be with them always. Living here so far without them is quite sad but so far it still bearable. Maybe I need to work hard and earn something to make it worth and like they did, me too will always remember them in my doa. In Sha Allah.

I got present, a cute key chain. 10Q sis! =)

p/s: Thank you to aunts and Naty for helping while sis at here. We really appreciate it. Alhamdulillah =)
