Petua Murah Rezeki dan Hati Tenang

Kali ini saya mahu kongsi tentang perkara-perkara yang boleh menyekat rezeki kita dan menggundah gulana kan hati kita, yang kita biasa buat sehari-hari tanpa kita sedar, supaya kita sentiasa beringat dan elakkan diri daripada melakukannya lagi.


1. Jangan menghina orang. Kenapa? Tahukah kamu dengan berbuat begitu, kamu telah menzaliminya. Apabila kamu berlaku zalim maka kamu adalah seorang yang kejam. Adakah orang kejam hidupnya akan diredhai Allah? Tidak sama sekali. Jadi berhentilah menghina, mencaci, mengherdik orang kerana itu tidak akan membawa apa-apa faedah kepada kamu.

2. Jangan menfitnah orang lain. Dosa fitnah itu amatlah besar, malahan lebih besar daripada membunuh. Kenapa? Kamu menuduh seseorang berbuat sesuatu yang mereka tidak lakukan. Kamu telah memalukan mereka, mengaibkan mereka, jadi adakah kamu fikir hidup kamu akan diberkati oleh Allah? Tidak. Malahan penfitnah ini diberi amaran oleh Allah tentang balasan neraka jahanam. Di atas dunia sementara ini pun para penfitnah tidak akan pernah hidup senang lantaran menganiayai orang lain yang tidak bersalah.

3. Jangan mengumpat. Ya, mengumpat adalah satu perkara yang sukar untuk dielakkan, lebih-lebih lagi orang perempuan. Mengata orang dengan macam-macam perkara hanya kerana tidak menyukainya, jadi kamu fikir dengan mengumpat orang, hati kamu akan tenang? Tidak. Malahan pahala-pahala kamu akan terbang pergi kepada orang yang diumpat itu. Lakukan dengan istiqamah, tidak mengutuk orang selama beberapa hari. Dan kamu akan sedar bahawa perbuatan mengumpat itu boleh dielakkan.

4. Hasad dengki yang keterlaluan, sehingga membuatkan orang yang kamu dengki itu rasa rimas dengan kamu. Bersyukurlah dengan rezeki masing-masing. Allah bagi rezeki lain-lain kepada hamba-Nya, kenapa masih mahu berdengki? Ada orang yang Allah bagi rezeki duit dan harta yang banyak. Ada orang yang Allah bagi rezeki keluarga, suami dan anak yang penyayang. Ada orang Allah beri rezeki ilmu yang luas. Jadi lihat dan renung-renungkan rezeki mana dan apa Allah bagi kepada kamu, supaya kamu reti bersyukur dan tidak iri hati kepada kehidupan orang lain. Orang kuat dengki tidak tahu bersyukur, maka orang tidak bersyukur Allah tidak akan memurahkan rezekinya. Ingatlah!

5. Jangan pernah hilang hormat kepada orang yang pernah memberi ilmu kepada kamu, yakni pensyarah/cikgu/tutor/pengajar dalam apa jua bidang sekalipun. Ilmu yang mereka kongsi dengan kamu itulah yang menjadi bekal untuk kamu terus hidup, mendapat pekerjaan dan seterusnya mendapat duit untuk membeli makan pakai kamu. Sekiranya kamu tidak reti untuk hormat orang yang pernah memberi ilmu kepada kamu malahan mencaci maki mereka, kamu fikir Allah akan beri pekerjaan dan rezeki yang baik untuk kamu? Jangan berangan. Allah Maha Adil. Hidup orang yang tidak menghormati gurunya tidak tenang dan akan susah sepanjang hidupnya, malahan untuk mendapat pekerjaan yang elok pun payah.

6. Jangan memutuskan silaturrahim sesama Islam. Apabila terputusnya ukhuwah kerana perangai kamu yang jelek mahupun keras kepala, maka rezeki akan menjadi lebih sempit. Bayangkan orang yang berniaga tetapi telah putus ukhuwah dengan ramai saudara dan kawannya, adalah menjadi satu kerugian baginya kerana sudah hilang separuh pelanggan dan promosi percuma. Maka dengan itu haruslah kita berusaha untuk menjaga silaturrahim yang ada ini.

7. Jangan berkira untuk memberi duit/makanan kepada orang susah, ibu bapa mahupun kucing yang datang ke rumah kamu. Bagilah mereka duit atau makanan mengikut kemampuan kamu. Dan jangan pernah mengungkit. Allah akan mudahkan lagi rezeki kamu, apabila kamu memudahkan rezeki orang.

8. Jangan buruk sangka dekat orang. Sebelum kita teruskan sangkaan buruk kita tu, cuba bagi 101 sebab untuk bersangka baik dengan orang tersebut. Jika ada kawan kita buruk sangka kat kawan yang lain dan sampaikan kepada kita, cuba bagi 10 sebab kepada dia untuk bersangka baik. Bila orang menegur kesalahan kita jangan kita anggap orang tu berlagak baik. Bila orang kongsi maklumat jangan anggap orang tu eksyen pandai. Bila orang bergurau dengan kita jangan kita anggap dia mengherdik kita. Bila orang buat lawak-lawak lepas kahwin jangan pula kita cakap dia melucah. Selalu bersangka baik sesama manusia supaya hati tenang. 

Tulisan di atas adalah nukilan ikhlas daripada hati saya. Andainya ada tersilap atau terkasar bahasa pada mana-mana bahagian, ampun maaf saya minta daripada kalian. Semoga peringatan saya di atas dapat memanfaatkan semua pembaca. Wallahu'alam. Wassalam.

Myvi 10niversary Celebration

Pada hari Ahad yang lalu, iaitu pada 24 Mei 2015 suami saya mengambil kesempatan untuk menyertai gathering rasmi pemilik Myvi se-Malaysia yang dianjurkan oleh syarikat Perodua. Acara ini bertempat di Setia City Mall (SCM) Outdoor Park dimana ia diadakan 2 hari, iaitu hari kedua khusus untuk para peserta mendaftarkan diri dan mengambil goodies limited edition yang disediakan. Acara ini diadakan oleh Perodua untuk mencatat sejarah dalam Malaysia Book of Records sebagai gathering terbesar Myvi di Malaysia.

Sebenarnya kami pergi ke SCM agak lewat memandangkan suami saya pergi menghantar adiknya yang mendaftarkan diri di Asasi Universiti Malaya pada pagi hari yang sama. Dia hanya sampai di rumah usai menghantar adiknya hampir jam 12 tengahari. Melalui sms Perodua juga dinyatakan pendaftaran bagi para peserta Myvi Nation hanya sehingga jam 12 tengahari. Kami hampir membatalkan hasrat untuk pergi kerana sudah terlambat, namun kata hati kami membuatkan kami pergi juga kerana kami hanya mahu cuba nasib, andaikata sempat mendaftar ianya rezeki, andaikata pendaftaran sudah ditutup maka kami akan berjalan di SCM sahaja.

Kami bertolak pada jam 12 tengahari ke SCM dari rumah kami dan perjalanan mengambil masa kira-kira 30-40 minit. Sesampainya disana suami perlu menunjukkan sms yang diterima kepada staf yang menjaga pintu masuk sebagai bukti dia adalah salah sorang peserta yang betul. Kami tiba disana pada pukul 1 tengahari lebih kurang dan kami bersyukur kerana meja pendaftaran masih dibuka. Jadi suami cepat-cepat mendaftarkan diri dan diberi t-shirt Myvi 10niversary (kena tukar pada masa itu juga di changing room yang disediakan) dan voucher untuk mengambil lunch yang disediakan oleh KFC. Kami makan lunch tersebut, serta menyuap lunch kepada anak kami sebelum masuk ke SCM untuk menunaikan solat.


Kami sempat melawat beberapa booth Perodua pada waktu itu dan mendengar pengumuman pemenang cabutan bertuah yang membawa pulang sebuah kereta Myvi 10niversary limited edition (orang Perak yang menang, tahniah! Rezeki kamu).


Pada pukul 3 petang, para peserta diminta untuk pergi ke meja pendaftaran sekali lagi untuk mengambil goodies bag yang disediakan. Goodies bag yang ditunggu-tunggu ini diisi dengan minyak hitam Perodua, kad Touch and Go dengan isian RM100, voucher servis Perodua RM180, keychain Perodua dan macam-macam lagi (sebab itu suami saya mahu pergi, dia pengguna tegar TnG sudah semestinya ia sangat berguna kepadanya). Majalah Lisa juga ada di kawasan pendaftaran dan para peserta juga diberi majalah Lisa secara percuma.


Sebelum pulang ke rumah, saya sempat bertemu dengan rakan saya, Aisyah, yang kebetulan berada di SCM juga membawa anaknya bermain bubbles disitu. Selesai semua urusan, kami pulang ke rumah dengan hati gembira.

Kami berharap agar dapat menyertai lagi gathering rasmi yang dianjurkan syarikat Perodua pada masa akan datang, kerana kami amat sukakan goodies yang diberikan! Bertepatan dengan tema Myvi 10niversary 'Think Loved Ones, Drive Safely' kami berharap semoga pemandu-pemandu Myvi sentiasa memandu dengan cermat dan berhemah di jalanraya, pandu cermat, ingatlah orang tersayang, insya-Allah.

Online Shopping Malaysia - 5 Safe Tips For You

ONLINE SHOPPING MALAYSIA – 5 SAFE TIPS FOR YOU


Online shopping has been getting so popular here in Malaysia for the past few years and it is now a trend that most shoppers have picked since then. Why? Because online shopping can be a convenient and fun activity which is perfect especially for those who already have a job or career. When I say this, we know many of that with tight schedule and the need to juggle everything to keep it in order; we just don’t have the time to do what we all love – shopping. It cannot be denied that finding time to shop is hard especially whenever you are busy; there were times when you need to pamper yourself with things that you like. But you just can’t do so because it means you have to go out to the malls, to the crowded places and bad traffic. Shopping is not going to be on the top of your priority list. However, you could actually pamper yourself and buy things that you like by shopping online.

The best thing about online shopping is you can do it whenever wherever you want. This advanced retail therapy does help me, at least until now. But I also learned there are tips for online shopping you must follow to ensure your information and money stay safe. These tips would help you to have the best online shopping experience possible. Let me share with you 5 tips for safe online shopping Malaysia.


With just a few clicks you can get everything you want delivered to you. Yes it sounds fun and easier – without you ever leaving your home. But you must know before you start entering your card information online it can make you vulnerable to cyber criminals.

1. Safeguard your devices - because using outdated software means, to put in perspective, is like leaving your front door unlocked at night. So update your devices to make sure they have the most recent security software, operating systems, programs and apps.

2. Make sure you only enter network that is secured. Do not log on to unsecured wireless networks and most importantly with your mobile device.

3. Look for the lock! If you have ever noticed the closed padlock symbol on the web browser’s bar actually means that the site is secure. Only enter your card information on a site that is secure.

 
4. Online ads can be more than interesting for some with amazing calling of great discounts and promotions. But there are illegitimate ads are actually traps set to compromise your device. So be wary of online advertisements.

5. Credit/debit card is one of the safest forms of online payment because these cards allow you to seek for refunds. So don’t buy things online from sites that ask you to send cash through mail or money-writing service.

I hope the tips I give to you above help you a lot in doing more secure online shopping. Never let we lose our money for nothing. Happy online shopping to everyone!

Getaway: Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson

I first found out about Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson hotel when I was browsing the Facebook newsfeed, where suddenly I saw a tourism page promoting this hotel currently having soft launching with promo price until end of May 2015. Looking at its affordable promo price (plus I was in the mood for a getaway), I asked my husband if we could try to find a free weekend to stay there. And alhamdulillah, my husband gave the 'greenlight' on that Friday afternoon, few hours before we packed our bag and traveled to Port Dickson, as we booked the room at ~12 noon, only 3-4 hours before we checked in. We did not plan few months or weeks earlier. It was a sudden trip, to be honest.

DD and DH picture as we arrived there

So we spent our nights at the hotel. We booked the Executive Pool Villa room type. What makes me interested to stay at the hotel is that, each hotel room has private pool, where hotel guests do not need to share a big pool with each other like other hotels. Each room is also equipped with a steam room so it is easier for guest to swim and sauna-ing whenever we want.


My daughter enjoying the in room pool

As a mix version of Grand Lexis Port Dickson and Avani Sepang Goldcoast , the hotel has some similarities with both hotels. The design which hotel rooms are built on the sea water in the shape of hibiscus flower is the same as Avani Sepang's palm tree shape. The difference with Grand Lexis is that, Grand Lexis' pool is more private as the pool area is covered by walls on its surrounding. For Lexis Hibiscus, the pools in most of the rooms are more open to the surrounding, the glass wall is transparent, where people in the sea or at other rooms can see you swim in it. So at Lexis Hibiscus, if you are Muslim women and you want to swim, make sure you bring swimsuit or swimming cloth that covers your body properly. In the future there will be more private rooms in this hotel, which is still under construction. So if you would like to go to this hotel and prefer rooms with more private pool, it is better for you to wait for this hotel construction to be completed first, as there will be more type of rooms available.

Room view from my camera phone

The main area in the room was designed to perfection, it consists of 2 king beds and 2 sofa beds so each room can be occupied up to 4 adults + 2-4 kids. The TV program can be chosen from the normal TV to current events happening at the hotel to a range of movies available for free for you to watch. I took my time to watch The Impossible movie when I spent my night there as I did not get a chance to watch this movie earlier. About the toilet, it is awesomely designed too, where you can find a glass floor between the main area and the sink. My daughter loved the glass floor so much that she spent few hours sitting at the glass floor to see the sea water under the room through the glass floor.

My daughter and her beloved glass floor

As the construction of this hotel was not fully done yet when we stayed there, we could see the main building and the in the sea restaurant still in progress. There is also on going construction on the beach near this hotel which I expect to be done soon and I am confident that that beach will be a beautiful beach for sure. To go from one place to another (eg: from lobby to the room) is also no problem, like other 5 stars hotels, Lexis Hibiscus provides buggy service which you can call at anytime you want to use the service.

The room rate we got did not include breakfast, but worry not as there is Roselle Coffee House in this hotel that provides breakfast buffet at a very affordable price, RM25 per person. Many types of food available so you may spend 30 minutes to 1 hour to taste and eat all food available there.

So as a conclusion I can say that staying at this hotel made me happy, changed my mood to be better and I can feel that it really worth my money to spend my day in the hotel. If you have a chance to go, do so as soon as possible, as the price may be higher after the hotel is complete and launched officially. You can book your room at Lexis Hibiscus web

Ongoing promotion till June 2015 (pic from hotel website)

To those who are going to go to the hotel and reading this entry, I want to wish you all, enjoy your stay at the hotel! Take care. Xoxo.
