Greetings to all Muslims

Todos Mis Caminos Van a Ti

Posted: January 30, 2006 in music

Entre un silencio entre un te quiero
Estrenaré mis besos nuevos
Una y otra vez como hielo al sol
Yo me desintegro en las garras de tu amor

Llegas a mi te pierdes dentro
Y vivo el todo en un momento
Fuego abrasador mil grados de pasión
Antorchas de cristal se encienden en la noche

Todos mis caminos van a ti
Y en pleno vuelo
Corren mil hormigas por mi piel desnuda
Ya la noche entera se hace muda
Sin respiro sin control
Beso a beso sin temor
Tu y yo amándonos

Todos mis caminos van a ti
Y en pleno vuelo
Corren mil hormigas por mi piel desnuda
Ya la noche entera se hace muda
Suena el tic tac de un reloj
Detenedlo por favor
El tiempo de este amor es cuestión de dos

Me haces llegar al paraíso
En el momento mas preciso
Fuego abrasador mil grados de pasión
Antorchas de cristal se encienden en la noche

Todos mis caminos van a ti
Y en pleno vuelo
Corren mil hormigas por mi piel desnuda
Ya la noche entera se hace muda
Sin respiro sin control
Beso a beso sin temor
Tu y yo amándonos

Todos mis caminos van a ti
Y en pleno vuelo
Corren mil hormigas por mi piel desnuda
Ya la noche entera se hace muda
Suena el tic tac de un reloj
Detenedlo por favor
El tiempo de este amor solo es cuestión de dos

Sin respiro sin control
Beso a beso sin temor
Tu y yo amándonos

Istanbul Video

Posted: January 29, 2006 in Globe Trekker, islam, Istanbul

Below is a video taken on Thursday 1st of Dec, in front of Istanbul University, Istanbul which is situated not far from the Grand Bazaar. The quality of the video is not that good as it was the 1st time for me to actually use my Sony Cybershot T-33 to record a short video.

Should I or Shouldn’t I?

There’s an advertisement in the newspaper for a teaching position post at UTM. I’m undecided whether I should apply for the post. Mom encourages me to apply but the thing is they might send me to Skudai or Jln Semarak branch which is in KL. If successful, that is.

However, I would prefer to teach at IIUM as it’s an international university and government aided so the opportunity of moving forward is brighter! Plus both it’s campuses are in PJ and Gombak respectively.

Well, the decision is mine & whatever it is, I plan to apply for a new job anytime this year!

Progress, I hope

1130 – 1830 Irfan underwent surgery
1930 – Irfan brought out of the Observation Room. He is in pain, but thank God he is conscious and able to move his hands and toes. We feared for the worst as it was a major surgery to the backbone. We are still unsure what is the cause, unsure if it’s cancerous @ cyst or growth. We just hope for the best.7 heart-wrenching hours of wait & anxiety for all of us (either at the hospital or at home). I kept myself busy, looking for articles from journals online for my assignments, mom and dad went to Kajang (Irfan’s house) to check on his siblings (his bro, Shamil will be staying with us this whole week. Mom wants to give him special attention as he will be sitting for his UPSR this year), Mak Chu will be taking care of the other two (his older bro & younger sis).

At a Halt

The surgery has been postponed (due to some emergency cases i.e. accidents etc & the theater being occupied) and Insha Allah everything will go well tomorrow. Irfan’s fine but I don’t know what’s going through his mind, but he’s brave and determined to fight whatever illness he is going through right now.

We haven’t broken the news (about the 2 surgery) to my my aunt Norma who’s in Tokyo, we don’t want to worry her.

Irfan’s going under the knife

Just received this new this morning, so I’ll drive to GH with my one of my aunts & her kids today.

In my previous post, I did mention that he underwent an operation somewhere in early January or late December as he was suspected of/ diagnosed with Bone TB. They have removed a number of cysts located near / close to his back bone. It was a 5 hour torture for all of us. A few days ago, the doctors have found more cysts (2 to be exact) around the same area. Therefore, they have decided to have it removed today.

I don’t think I’m emotionally prepared to face my cousin today. It’s difficult for me to control my emotions as I am a bit tearful.

I’ll better get ready!

A time for change

The recent Palestinian elections have resulted in the resignation of the PM, a Fatah MP, due to the landslide win by Hamas. Was this a surprise? In my humble opinion, I think not. I think the Palestinians had suffered enough and have punished Fatah mainly because they are not able to reach any peace agreement. Or could it be due to corruption??Am I happy that Palestinians have voted for Hamas? Yes! I believe they have the rights to choose whomever they feel will be able to lead the country. There is a need for the wind of change as when a political party is at the helm for too long, one will know the system inside out! Which in the end will bring more harm than good. One may refute my statement, but there are many examples of such in this world especially in poor nations in Africa & Asia, even the developing countries from the other part of the world, there’s no need to mention names!

Edited: 28 January `06

A problem faced between these two parties are one is secular while the other an Islamist. Hence there has been bad blood running between them for years. The question is: How will Palestine will ever find peace when their people couldn’t work together?

Sob Story

Posted: January 26, 2006 in mi familia

*a tear in my eye*No, I’ve not been crying, but I’m about to. It’s very difficult for me to swallow such a heart breaking news which has hit one of my cousins. He has been sick since December. We thought he had muscle strain. My aunt took him to the doctor, and he couldn’t detect anything. A few days later, it got worse. He had difficulty walking. Mom was worried, & suggested that he go and get a body massage at one of the villages in rural Selangor. It didn’t work either. He was suffering, so they took him to Putrajaya Hospital and the doctor suspected he may have Bone TB, so they sent him to Pantai Cheras for a full body scan, that evening he went through a 5hr surgery (backbone) at the General Hospital. Thank God it was successful. He is still warded there. I would visit him occasionally, during weekends. *I am crying now* I’ve just received news today that he might be diagnosed with bone cancer. A part of his lower leg is swollen. He has another MRI scan due after the Chinese New Year. I hope …. he is only 15! I just hope everything will go well. He is supposed to sit for his PMR this year, but I told him to defer from sitting for his PMR this, do it next year when he is healthy, physically, mentally & emotionally prepared! I believe he is strong & determined to fight to stay alive!
