Aktiviti rabu...

(source: Yahoo)
Semalam...sempena ehsan Orange utk pelanggan2 diorng...rabu adalah hari movie kami berdua...sbb..beli satu dpt free satu..pastu upgrade skitt dpt duduk kat premier seat..Yeaah...masih jimat lagi...Semalam layan citer penyiasat org putih british yg bernama Sherlock Holmes...yg telah ditambah2 dgn kemachoan si Holmes kasi umpphhh lagi!!! mmg menarik..plus...ada Jude Law yg comel tu....ker sbb aku minat ngan si Robert Downey Jr. (RDJ) nie??? heheheh...mmg aku minat giller ngan mamat nie...dr era dia muda2 lagi..mata dia tu yg paling menawan....dia lebih kurang sebaya dgn lg satu aktor yg aku minat giller gak..si Johnny Depp gak...ooh mesti tengok citer baru Alice in the Wonderland version Tim Burton..yeaahh!!
Berbalik pada kisah RDJ nie...tengah2 dok top..dia ada sedikit bengong..mcm kebanyakan artis hollywood yg xleh adapt ngan public attention..mcm si Britney..si LiLo...ramai lagi...mamat nie telah masuk dlm 'lubang gelap"..kuar masuk court..etc..rehab..bla..bla..kejap timbul..kejap tenggelam..tp..few years back..rasa dia dh matang kot..pastu dh boring kot femes sbb kuar masuk court...jadi dia serious balik ngan career dia...aku mula tengok citer dia semula..dlm Iron Man..dan dlm Sherlock Holmes..dia mmg cool...ermmm...cuma ada gaya lakonan sedikit lebih kurang mcm en. Johnny...errrmm...x kisah laa...janji best!!! ok..welcome back RDJ!!!!

Banyak mana yg baru cukup??

Minggu lepas...aku tengok documentary nie...Kevin McCloud slumming it...mamat nie cuba menyelami kisah kehidupan mereka2 yg tinggal di kawasan paling errmm...serabut+kotor kat Darabi, Mumbai..kawasan slum...yg telah diceritakan dlm Slumdog Millionare yg femes tu...

Mula2 tengok..mmg kembang tekak habis...campur x percaya yg ada manusia yg boleh hidup dlm kawasan yg sebegitu x hygenicnya...dgn xde proper facilities..dr segi air, elektrik..perparitan..dan yg paling obvious..pembuangan sisa manusia..isshh..senang citer..jamban laa....selamba je..buat aktiviti harian..kat tepi2 parit..longkang..mana2 yg sempat laa org kata...Kevin pun pening masa mula2 masuk kawasan tu...aku pun leh bayang betapa tengitnya bau udara kat situ...adeh...selain tu...mereka2 nie...hidup harmoni bersama2 sampah-sarap...dan haiwan2 lain...yg suka menetap kat kawasan mcm tu..cik TI..kus...kusss semangat aku...

lepas tengok 2 episod...banyak yg aku leh belajar dr mereka2 yg gagah lagi perkasa:
1. mereka nie..leh kata kan survivor habis laa...salute kat depa nie!!!

2. utk gembira...material etc x menjanjikan kegembiraan dlm hidup (huhuhu...terharu aku tengok diorng boleh happy ngan hidup diorng yg serba kekurangan...OOoohh..rasa diri nie kerdil)..diorng x perlu kan iPod..x perlukan branded clothes..x perlukan designer items..utk happy...mcm mana tu???..tp diorng happy..aku tengok pun..aku x berapa nak percaya..tp tu laa hakikatnya..diorng mmg happy!!! Kevin pun kagum ngan keceriaan yg dia nampak....adakah aku boleh jadi setabah diorng2 nie??? tanpa semua materials yg ada skrng??? semuanya mmg bermain dlm kepala otak aku nie...huhuhu...

3. bukan diorng mintak hidup diorng mcm tu...tp diorng make do dgn apa yg diorng ada....just imagine...dlm rumah yg sebesar ruang tamu kat umah kebanyakan org skrng..boleh memuatkan 21 org ahli keluarga..dari 3 generasi..MasyaAllah..kat situ laa dapur, ruang tamu, bilik tidur...yet sorng pun x mengeluh...jelas kelihatan...yg diorng happy...adeehh..umah yg aku duduk skrg nie..pun..kira ok sgt2 kan..huhuhu...diorng mandi kat luar rumah jer..kena beratur nak g berak..mcm citer P.Ramlee dolu2..

4. do not under estimate a person...walau pun diorng nie duduk kat area yg mcm gini..rata2 g sekolah..83% diorng ada pekerjaan...yg pasti..leh speaking London..ok..

5. yg paling Kevin terkejut...crime rate sgt2 rendah kat area nie....errmmm.....

6. Bersyukur dgn apa yg ada.....Alhamdulillah...rasa mcm kita nie dah susah..tp kat luar sana tu...mmg ramai yg kais pagi makan pagi...

Kalo korang leh layan documentary nie..mmg betul2 eye opening laa org kata...aku dr mula tengok smpai ke sudah..mcm2 reaksi n memek muka ada..hehehe..tu yg my abang cakap sepanjang dok tengok citer nie...dia cakap..x lalu..jgn tengok laa..tp aku nak tengok gak..sbb sgt2 menarik...leh search dlm internet...

oraits..adios..

90/10




The 90/10 Principle by Stephen Covey

Discover the 90/10 Principle. It will change your life.

What is the 90/10 Principle?
10% of life is made up of what happens to you.
90% of life is decided by how you react.
What does this mean?
We really have no control over 10% of what happens to us.
We cannot stop the car from breaking down.
The plane will be late arriving, which throws our whole schedule off.
A driver may cut us off in traffic.
We have no control over this 10%.
The other 90% is different.
You determine the other 90%.
How? By your reaction.
You cannot control a red light, but you can control your reaction.
Don't let people fool you; YOU can control how you react.
Let's use an example.

You are eating breakfast with your family.
Your daughter knocks over a cup of coffee onto your business shirt.
You have no control over what just what happened.
What happens when the next will be determined by how you react.
You curse.
You harshly scold your daughter for knocking the cup over.
She breaks down in tears. After scolding her, you turn to your spouse and criticize her for placing the cup too close to the edge of the table. A short verbal battle follows.
You storm upstairs and change your shirt.
Back downstairs, you find your daughter has been too busy crying to finish breakfast and get ready for school. She misses the bus.
Your spouse must leave immediately for work. You rush to the car and drive your daughter to school. Because you are late, you drive 40 miles an hour in a 30 mph speed limit.

After a 15-minute delay and throwing $60 traffic fine away, you arrive at school.
Your daughter runs into the building without saying goodbye.
After arriving at the office 20 minutes late, you find you forgot your briefcase.
Your day has started terribly. As it continues, it seems to get worse and worse.
You look forward to coming home, When you arrive home, you find a small wedge in your relationship with your spouse and daughter. Why? Because of how you reacted in the morning.

Why did you have a bad day?
A) Did the coffee cause it?
B) Did your daughter cause it?
C) Did the policeman cause it?
D) Did you cause it?
The answer is D.

You had no control over what happened with the coffee.
How you reacted in those 5 seconds is what caused your bad day.
Here is what could have and should have happened.

Coffee splashes over you.
Your daughter is about to cry.
You gently say, "It's ok honey, you just need, to be more careful next time."
Grabbing a towel you rush upstairs. After grabbing a new shirt and your briefcase, you come back down in time to look through the window and see your child getting on the bus. She turns and waves.
You arrive 5 minutes early and cheerfully greet the staff.
Your boss comments on how good the day you are having.
Notice the difference?
Two different scenarios.
Both started the same.
Both ended different.
Why? Because of how you REACTED.
You really do not have any control over 10% of what happens.
The other 90% was determined by your reaction.
Here are some ways to apply the 90/10 principle. If someone says something negative about you, don't be a sponge. Let the attack roll off like water on glass.
You don't have to let the negative comment affect you! React properly and it will not ruin your day. A wrong reaction could result in losing a friend, being fired, getting stressed out etc.

How do you react if someone cuts you off in traffic?
Do you lose your temper?
Pound on the steering wheel?
A friend of mine had the steering wheel fall off!
Do you curse?
Does your blood pressure skyrocket?
Do you try and bump them? WHO CARES if you arrive ten seconds later at work? Why let the cars ruin your drive?
Remember the 90/10 principle, and do not worry about it.

You are told you lost your job.
Why lose sleep and get irritated? It will work out.
Use your worrying energy and time into finding another job.

The plane is late; it is going to mangle your schedule for the day.
Why take out your frustration on the flight attendant?
She has no control over what is going on.
Use your time to study, get to know the other passenger. Why get stressed out?
It will just make things worse.
Now you know the 90-10 principle. Apply it and you will be amazed at the results. You will lose nothing if you try it. The 90-10 principle is incredible.
Very few know and apply this principle.
The result?
Millions of people are suffering from undeserved stress, trials,problems and heartache.
There never seem to be a success in life. Bad days follow bad days.
Terrible things seem to be constantly happening. There is constant stress, lack of joy, and broken relationships.
Worry consumes time.
Anger breaks friendships and life seems dreary and is not enjoyed to the fullest.
Friends are lost. Life is a bore and often seems cruel.

Does this describe you? If so, do not be discouraged. You can be different!
Understand and apply the 90/10 principle.
It will change your life.
"Sharing is caring"

Secerah Pawana....




Secerah Pawana
Album : Nasyid Nostalgia The Zikr
Munsyid : Nazrey Johani
http://liriknasyid.com


Seindah sedamai pantai melambai gemalai
Begitulah hati merindu kasih yang padu
Bagaikan pepasir basah disimbah lautan
Begitulah perjuangan ini
biar basah dengan iman dan ukhwah

Kita ingin segalanya indah
Sebersih pasir pantai memutih
Seindah dan secerah pawana
Berseri ukhwah dipupuk kasih

Kita ingin segala terlerai
Dengki dan dendam kesumat musnah
Biar keikhlasan berbicara
Di dada hati luas saujana


:~ teringat dok nasyid ramai2 ngan adik2..masa on e way balik kampung utk raya puasa..masa tu lalu ikut jalan lama lagi....dok menjerit2 riuh-rendah dlm keter..smpai ayah aku..ugut nak baling keset nasyid nie dlm Sungai Tapah..kalau asyik nyanyi jerit2...lepas tu..semua jd sopan..kejap jer...lepas sejam dua..boring..jadi balik....hehehe...the good old days....

Patut laaah...

Aberysthwyth terkini...


Southampton TownQuay....






Mula2 dulu...bila aku dengar ayah aku dok borak2 ngan geng2 masa kat UK..mesti topik yg terkeluar...pasal cuaca...diorng asyik sebut...UK weather...apa kebendanya laa tu....pasal cuaca pun leh jadi topik....walaupun...citer tu dok ulang..ulang..dan ulang...tapi...aku x pernah bosan dengar diorng dok berborak pasal era diorng belajar kat UK..smpai kan...aku leh ada bayangan dlm kepala otak aku nie....walhal..mana pernah jejak lagi kaki...semula...tu yg selalu kena perli ngan my abang...mcm pernah pergi jer....huhuhu...pergi mmg laa pernah...tp dh x ingat daaaa..... :P





Cuaca yg diorng selalu gambarkan....gloomy....kalo x gloomy....hujan...sejuk..angin...sbbnya...Aberysthwyth, Wales...terletak kat tepi laut...yg jauh dr bandar besar...paling dekat pun Swansea...rasa x beza banyak dgn Southampton....yg dekat dgn laut....sekali angin tiup...mak aaiiii.....smpai ke tulang hitam laa org kata.....mak aku pernah citer..angin tiup kuat sgt...diorng siap bergantung kat tiang letrik..hehehe...dlm kepala aku..mcm citer kartun jer....tp mmg angin kuat pun kat persisiran pantai Wales tu...





Antara aktiviti ayah n mak aku..dgn kengkawan diorng selalu x pernah miss ialah...waktu musim ikan makarel...adalah menjala ikan...punya laa banyak ikan...kasi tebar jala (awas!!! aksi ini hanya termampu dilakukan oleh org Malaysia sahaja..hehehe)...smpai dh x tau nak buat apa dgn ikan...keropok..ikan kering etc..punya laa excited tengok ikan dok 'serah diri' kat tepi laut tu....tamak punya pasal....mmg dpt banyak..sekali menjala berpuluh2 makarel menjadi mangsa....that was 30 years back...kelakar pun ada dok dengar citer diorng...tu laa antara modal diorng kalau berjumpa...walaupun memasing dh pencen..dan bercucu etc....tp..aku mmg salute diorng punya friendship...hingga ke akhir hayat..al-fatihah to arwah uncle ishak...sbb masa tu..Malaysian x seramai sekarang...sbb tu kot ukhwah diorng tersangat akrab...tu aku punya teori laa kan ;)





kembali pada kisah cuaca nie....mmg aku notice masa aku dok jaga kaunter kat kedai charity tu...modal utama nak mula conversation ngan customers...mesti weather....hehehe...x kisah laa..sama ada sunny ker...rainy ker....even xde apa2 pun...leh jadi pembuka cerita....aku pun apa lagi...ramah tamah laaa..especially kalo layan mereka2 yg veteran...yg suka dilayan bercakap...nie dh agak lama aku x jenguk kedai...ingat tunggu x baper sejuk sgt...leh laa aku menjenguk diri...sejuk giller kedai tu...xde heater...malas nak g terjenguk kat kauter sejuk2 gedi mcm skrng nie....jalan pulak asyik frost jer.....OOhhhh summer....aku rindukan mu........muaahhh!!!!
