2012 is going to leave us soon and we are welcoming the new year, 2013.
Alhamdulillah for my 2012, it has been a great year for me, I got several things I've wished for years, thanks to Allah, nobody can understand me better than Him.
The year 2012 marked to be a meaningful year for me. I was 'dirisik' early 2012, got engaged in middle 2012 and now counting days to our big day. Everything happens so fast and I am going to enjoy my last single days with beloved family and friends as much as I can.
Early November this year was also the time I got great news, in terms of my future financial and job security, inshaa Allah, so what I have to do now is struggling to be the best as I can, so that I can give back the best to the people around me. Please pray for me, so that everything I have to do will be easy for me, because I do all of this because of Allah, I continue living because of Allah, so I hope He helps me in everything I do. I have been dreaming to work in an area where I can share my knowledge and passion in research with others, so for sure I will grab this opportunity to make my dreams come true. It is still a long journey to go through before I can be what I really want to be, but with this opportunity Allah gives me, this journey will be easier inshaa Allah, not only to me, but also to everyone around me.
Alhamdulillah I get a very understanding and supportive fiance, he already knows his responsibility in order to make my dream comes true, so what more can I ask for...
In 2012 I am working in my hometown, with parents and family to take care for each other, it is very great. And I decide to continue working here in early 2013 until the month of me getting married. After that I will have to move nearer to my future husband, and do everything I have to do in terms of job and study, to secure my future. I pray that Allah helps me in everything, gives me courage and strength to be able to go through all circumstances and challenges.
To everyone, I wish the best for you in everything you do, do not forget to pray always to Allah, du'a as much as we can. We will be strong by remembering Allah, so in everything we do, do with all our hearts, so we will be content always.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 to all my friends, may Allah bless us in our 2013... Have a great year everyone. ♥♥♥
I always remind myself, everything that I have now is not mine. All of them belong to Allah. The family, the friends, the money, myself, even the knowledge that I own, not exactly mine. They are all belong to our one and only one Allah. And for that I always remember, do not be proud of anything I have, they are only owed by Allah, because Allah knows we need them, and without them our lives will be worse.
When it comes to thinking about death, what always comes to our minds is, what will happen to everyone around us when we leave them. I did that before (thinking about what would happen to my loved ones after I die), until last week, I realized that it was not the right thing for me to do. When it comes to thinking about death, thing I should be wondering is, is my 'pahala' enough for me to entitle me to enter Jannah. 'Cukupkah amalan aku buat untuk bertemu dengan Allah.' 'Adakah semua yg Allah bagi di bumi ini kepadaku, ku manfaatkan dengan baik supaya aku tidak malu untuk bertemu dengan Allah.' Repeating these questions in my mind, obviously I am crying all the time with the answers, because until today I feel ashamed to meet Allah, in my current condition. What I have done to 'mengangkat martabat Islam dan mendidik orang lain untuk tidak mempersekutukan Allah di muka bumi ini?' Everything I do until now is still not enough, compared to what Allah gives me till today. If you do your best to everyone around you before you die, obviously you do not have to think about what will happen to them after you have left. Because you know Allah is with them. Do your responsibilities well to everyone around you, and they will be okay even after you go.
The family that Allah gives me now, I am very grateful, for they always be there for me, help me, support me in whatever I do. The money that Allah gives me, not that much like others, but more than enough for me to eat, pay everything I have to, and never not enough. The love from everyone that Allah gives me, I am very thankful, at least I know what real love is, one of Allah's creation. And the knowledge that I have now, alhamdulillah to Allah, with this knowledge I can help, teach others, and I hope Allah will grant more knowledge for me. The health I have now, excellent health, syukran to Allah, nothing can beat having a healthy body. But above all, everything I have is from Allah, at anytime Allah may take any of them from me, and I have to be ready for that. And whatever Allah will give me after this, I will always remember that they are not fully mine. So for now, I have to struggle with everything I have now, make 'pahala' a lot, because only with that, I will live happily ever after. Jannah is absolutely my goal, but only Allah knows am I eligible to go there or not. I am so afraid to go to the Hell, I always pray I will not be there.. It is scary, even imagining about it is scary.
Ya Allah ku tak layak ke syurgaMu, namun tak pula aku sanggup ke nerakaMu.."
'Mari beramal kerana Allah dengan apa yang Allah pinjamkan kepada kita.' InsyaAllah... ♥
Alhamdulillah, managed to have some fun girls days out with beloved friends early this month (October). We planned to have our island getaway for quite some time, and we made it finally... And this trip was superduperfun!
We went to Pulau Redang (Redang Island) early October, luckily we got the time to go there before the resorts are close due to monsoon season November till March every year. We departed to Redang (by ferry) from Merang Jetty, and the journey took about 45 minutes. As we arrived at our resort, we were welcomed with the Redang's crystal clear blue water, which is so beautiful.
We stayed in Redang Mutiara Beach Resort, a quiet resort that is located quite far from other resorts, which is an excellent resort for those who prefer to stay in a private resort. For those who love a lively happening surrounding, I advice you to stay in resorts located in Long Beach area, as there is where you can enjoy an energetic environment around you. But for people who love to be in a more private area like me, Redang Mutiara Beach Resort is the right resort to stay in!
We took snorkeling full package, for our 3 days 2 nights stay, 3 times snorkeling, and 4 times meal per day. We went snorkeling at Marine Park Centre in Redang too, where most of colourful fishes and corals can be found easily not far away from the beach.
Snorkeling with bestfriends were so enjoyable, and we also grabbed our chances to swim around the beach happily! With the blue clear water by the beach, how could you say no to take a dip in the sea.. We were also lucky to get kind boatmen, which offered helps to us whenever we felt not so confident to go snorkel around the area of deep sea water, as they wanted us to see the magnificent and fascinating fishes and corals in deep sea water area (which is of course very different with corals and fishes found in shallow sea water area) ..
So, overall, Redang must be in your-must-go-place-to-visit list, as it welcomes you with its own beauty and attraction. Make sure you take care of yourself very well as you will be in the water most of the time when you are having vacation in an island. And don't panic while snorkeling and swimming, for you to enjoy your island getaway better. If you are good in diving (and confident to dive), some resorts in Redang also offer Diving Package (apart from Snorkeling Package), so choose any package that suits you best. And if you plan to go for a honeymoon in a romantic island, Redang is the island to go!
Vacation will be more fun when you are going with your besties! Me and my besties are planning for our other next vacations too, so let's enjoy our Mother Nature while we still can. ;-)
♥ Life is beautiful. It's about undergoing the challenges with smiles and patience. In whatever you do, do because of Allah and wherever you go, go with all your heart. And this will keep you in happiness all the time! ♥
