Value of Time

To realize the value of ONE YEAR,

Ask a student who failed his or her final exam.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH,

Ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK,

Ask an editor of a weekly magazine.

To realize the value of ONE DAY,

Ask a daily wage laborer who has six kids to feed.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR,

Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE,

Ask a person who missed his or her train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND,

Ask the person who survived an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND,

Ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

- Quoted from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey

Recently, I added a new widget on this lovely blog which is the Followers. But I dont know its function. I added it because most of my friends have it too. I already use google reader to know whether my friends had already updated his/her blog or not.

What?! There are no followers yet? OF COURSE. So, you know what's your job right? Okay, thanks in advance. =) And I will follow all my friends' blogs. Oh yes, I'm still considering to change my blog's template. Black maybe?

Result kami


Keputusan SPM09 baru diumumkan pada 11 Mac 2010 yang lepas. Hari yang penuh debaran itu telah kami semua lalui dengan pelbagai ragam. Ada yang menangis kegembiraan dan pelbagai lagi. Alhamdullillah, seramai 37 orang pelajar berjaya mendapat keputusan straight's A dan saudari Nor Aliza Mohamed diumumkan sebagai pelajar terbaik Negeri Terengganu. Beliau mendapat keputusan 12A+ dalam peperiksaan ini.

Apa yang membanggakan, berdasarkan kiraan saya, daripada 37 orang yang mendapat straight's A, 17 daripadanya adalah XY. Yup, itu adalah satu pencapaian yang membanggakan. Keputusan SPM09 juga menyaksikan sekali lagi subjek EST (Easy&Simple Test?) menjadi penyebab kegagalan pelajar untuk mendapat keputusan straight's A. Dalam kelas 5 Bukhari, 10 daripada kami tidak berjaya mendapat keputusan straight's A disebabkan subjek ini.

Jadi, nasihat saya, janganlah ambil subjek EST ni. Selain itu, SPM kali ini juga memperlihatkan penggunaan sistem penggredan yang baru. Klik sini untuk maklumat mengenai sistem gred baru ini. Analisis rasmi mengenai keputusan SPM09 masih belum dikeluarkan oleh pihak sekolah.

An essay that I wont forget

The Passengers on the bus

The passengers on the bus watched sympathetically as the attractive young woman with the white cane made her way carefully up the steps. She paid the driver, using her hands to feel the location of the seats, walked down the aisle and found the seat he'd told her was empty. Then she settled in, placed her briefcase on her lap and rested her cane against her leg.

It had been a year since Susan, thirty-four, became blind. Due to a medical misdiagnosis, she had been rendered sightless, and she was suddenly thrown into a world of darkness, anger, frustration and self-pity. Once a fiercely independent woman, Susan now felt condemned by this terrible twist of fate to become a powerless and helpless burden on everyone around her.

"How could this have happened to me?" she would plead, her heart knotted with anger, but no matter how much she cried, protested, ranted or prayed, she knew the painful truth that her sight was never going to return. A cloud of depression hung over Susan's once optimistic spirit. Just getting through each day was an exercise in frustration and exhaustion. And all she had to cling to was her husband Mark.

Mark was an Air Forces officer and he loved Susan with all of his heart. When she first lost her sight, he watched her sink into despair and was determined to help his wife gain the strength and confidence she needed to become independent again.

Mark's military background had trained him well to deal with such sensitive situations, and yet he knew this was the most difficult battle he would ever face.

Finally, Susan felt ready to return to her job, but how would she get there? She used to take the bus, but was now too frightened to get around the city by herself. Mark volunteered to drive her to and from work each day, even though they worked at opposite ends of the city.

At first, this comforted Susan and fulfilled Mark's need to protect his sightless wife who was so insecure about performing the slightest task. Soon, however, Mark realized that this arrangement wasn't working, it was hectic and costly.

'Susan is going to have to start taking the bus again' he admitted to himself, but just the thought of mentioning it to her made him cringe, she was still so fragile and so angry. 'How would she react?' he admitted to himself again.

Just as Mark predicted, Susan was horrified at the idea of taking the bus again. "I'm blind!" she responded bitterly "How am I supposed to know where I'm going? I feel like you're abandoning me".

Mark's heart broke to hear these words, but he knew what had to be done. He promised Susan that each morning and evening he would ride the bus with her, for as long as it took, until she got the hang of it. And that is exactly what happened.

For two solid weeks, Mark, military uniform and all, accompanied Susan to and from work each day. He taught her how to rely on her other senses specifically her hearing, how to determine where she was and how to adapt to her new environment.

He helped her befriend the bus drivers who could watch out for her, and save her a seat. He made her laugh, even on those not-so-good days when she would trip exiting the bus, or drop her briefcase. Each morning they made the journey together, and Mark would take a cab back to his office.

Although this routine was even more costly and exhausting than the previous one, Mark knew it was only a matter of time before Susan would be able to ride the bus on her own. He believed in her, he used to know before she'd lost her sight, who wasn't afraid of any challenge and who would never, ever quit.

Finally, Susan decided that she was ready to try the trip on her own. Monday morning arrived, and before she left, she threw her arms around Mark, her temporary bus riding companion, her husband and her best friend. Her eyes filled with tears of gratitude for his loyalty, his sincerity, his patience and his love. She said good-bye, and for the first time, they went their separate ways. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, each day on her own went perfectly, and Susan had never felt better. She was doing it and she was going to work all by herself.

On Friday morning, Susan took the bus to work as usual. As she was paying for her fare to exit the bus, the driver said "Boy, I sure envy you" Susan wasn't sure if the driver was speaking to her or not. After all, who on earth would ever envy a blind woman who had struggled just to find the courage to live for the past year?

Curiously, she asked him "Why do you say that you envy me?" The driver responded "It must feel so good to be taken care of and protected like you are". Susan had no idea what the driver was talking about, she asked him again "What do you mean?" .

The driver answered, "You know, every morning for the past week, a fine looking gentleman in a military uniform has been standing across the corner watching you when you get off the bus. He makes sure you cross the street safely and he watches you until you enter your office building. Then he blows you a kiss, gives you a little salute and walks away. You are one lucky lady" .

Tears of happiness poured down Susan's cheeks. For although she couldn't physically see him, she had always felt Mark's presence. She was fortunate, so fortunate, for he had given her a gift more powerful than sight, a gift she didn't need to see to believe, the gift of love that can bring light where there had been darkness. You don't love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.


Tell me what do you feel after reading this story? Why I post this story? Well, some of my friends may understand and I dont want to answer this question directly. If you want to read the modified one, you can refer to English 1119 SPM 2009 paper 2 at summary section.

If you want to know, it is all about my 1119 paper.

If you still want to know, then ask me. LOL. Yes, I really cant tell it here. To be frank, this story makes me worry for about 3 months, but Alhamdullilah, the result is good.

Ibu atau anak?

Seorang lelaki berjalan mundar-mandir di lorong hospital, gelisah akan keadaan
isterinya yang akan melahirkan anak sulung mereka.Setelah beberapa jam ia
menunggu, tak jua terdengar tangisan bayi. Tiba-tiba,seorang doktor berjalan
tergopoh-gopoh keluar dari ruang persalinan menuju kearahnya.

"Bagaimana keadaannya doktor?" tanyanya penuh harap.

"Maaf encik, kami sudah berusaha, keadaannya amat kritikal. Si ibu sudah tak
sedarkan diri! " jawab doktor itu.

"Jadi bagaimana doktor ?"

"Kami tak mungkin dan berupaya untuk menyelamatkan keduanya, tapi masih ada harapan. Kami hanya punya satu pilihan, menyelamatkan si ibu, atau menyelamatkan si bayi!"

Lelaki tersebut kebingungan, dan tak dapat berkata-kata.

"Maaf encik, setiap saat amat berharga, tolong cepat untuk membuat pilihan!"
desak doktor itu.

Akhirnya, dengan berat hati lelaki itupun berkata dengan nada sayu, "Doktor,
saya sangat bingung. Saya serahkan sepenuhnya kepada doktor. Tolong lakukan yang terbaik!" pintanya.

Doktor pun bergegas kembali ke ruang persalinan. Nampaknya dia sudah
berpengalaman menangani masalah darurat atau kritikal seperti ini dan dia tahu
apa yang harus dilakukannya.

Ini adalah salah satu contoh, bagaimana keyakinan beragama boleh mempengaruhi keputusan disaat genting.

Bagi seorang doktor beragama kristian/katolik, ia akan berusaha menyelamatkan si anak, dan mengorbankan si ibu.

Bagi doktor muslim, ia akan berusaha menyelamatkan si ibu, dan mengorbankan si bayi.

Memang benar, dua-duanya adalah pilihan yang sukar, tapi itulah jalan terakhir dan muktamat.

Mengapa ia boleh berlaku seperti demikian?

Dalam ajaran kristian, setiap manusia yang lahir sudah membawa dosa, doktrin ini dikenal dengan "dosa waris" atau "dosa asal". Manusia yang lahir sudah menanggung dosa Nabi Adam dan Hawa. Untuk menebusnya ia harus mengikuti seorang penyelamat yakni penebus dosa (Ketua Paderi atau Pope).

Doktor Kristian itu akan berjuang sedaya upaya untuk menyelamatkan si anak, agar dia dapat lahir dengan sihat dan selamat walaupun sebaliknya terpaksa mengorbankan si ibu . Doktor berharap, setelah anak itu lahir ia akan mendapat kesempatan untuk dibaptiskan, untuk tujuan menebus dosanya. Jika si anak meninggal sebelum dibaptiskan, anak itu akan masuk neraka. Sebab, dosanya belum sempat ditebus.

Dalam ajaran Islam, setiap manusia lahir dalam keadaan fitrah/suci. Doktor muslim akan berjuang menyelamatkan si ibu, kerana dia tidak bimbang yang bayi akan masuk neraka. Dengan terselamatkannya si ibu, insyaAllah setelah sihat kembali akan dikurniai kekuatan untuk mengandung lagi dan mudah-mudahan mendapatkan ganti yang lebih baik, yang lebih soleh. Sedangkan anak yang tak sempat terselamatkan, biarlah ia kembali kepada Allah dalam keadaan suci. Mungkin lebih baik sekiranya bayi itu tidak dilahirkan di dunia yang penuh tipu daya ini agar hidupnya kelak tidak menjadi orang yang tersesat.

Demikianlah, dalam keadaan serba salah lelaki itu tak sempat untuk memastikan agama doktor tadi. Dan ia sudah berserah sepenuhnya kepada doktor itu.

Di dunia ini ada banyak agama dan kepercayaan. Pemahaman kita terhadap ajaran agama yang kita anut, akan menentukan jalan hidup kita.

Itu sebabnya amat penting bagi kita orang Islam menentukan yang bakal menerima kelahiran anak kita adalah seorang doktor muslim.

Sejak bangun tidur, kita sudah dihadapkan kepada pilihan.

1. Meneruskan tidur, atau bangun solat subuh?
2. Untuk lunch dahulu, atau solat zohor dahulu?
3. Setelah habis kerja, adakah terus pulang ke rumah, atau singgah ke gerai kopi/disco dahulu?
4. Ikut terlibat melakukan pecah amanah, atau dimusuhi rakan sekerja?
5. Menyegerakan berkahwin, atau menundanya dulu?
6. Hidup mulia di sisi Allah, atau mulia dalam pandangan manusia?
7. Dan banyak lagi.

P/S : Kita akan sering dihadapkan pada pilihan-pilihan yang lebih sukar, dan melibatkan akibat atau natijah yang sangat ditakuti. Kesimpulannya, perbanyakkanlah muhasabah diri dan tambahkan ilmu dengan majlis-majlis ILMU. Mudah-mudahan selamat kita semua di dunia & di akhirat. InsyaAllah
