Victor Merah lagi Murah.

1980yen sahaja. Paling murah berbanding headphone lain yang ada. Biasa dalam 4-5ribu yen.

Kalau tak silap, ini masuk kali ke-4 saya beli headphone. Satu bagi orang, satu kene curik kat Paris(dengan iPod sekali..), satu lagi dah bagi ayahanda pakai kat rumah.

Kenapa beli headphone? Adakah ia satu keperluan? Jawabnya, sangat-sangat perlu.

1-Earphone leceh, susah nak pakai kalau dah siap-siap pakai tudung. Nak cabut, dan pakai balik lagi la susah.

2-Headphone dapat memberitu orang sekeliling yang kita ini tidak dapat mendengar apa-apa pun yang sedang berlaku (dengar sikit mungkin, cuma tidak jelas). Kerana saya pakai tudung, orang tidak tahu yang telinga saya sudah disumbat earphone dan menganggap bahawa saya pura-pura tidak mendengar apabila dipanggil. 3-Kalau masa puasa, rasa lebih selesa kalau tak masukkan apa-apa dalam lubang telinga (^_-).

4-Bunyi headphone lebih surround dan real.

.... itu sahaja buat masa ini. Akan saya tambah kalau-kalau teringat poin baru.

#Apa agaknya yang saya selalu dengar sampai headphone menjadi keperluan...?(^-^)v

Manggis for 38ringgit +/-

Satu, dua, tiga, empat, lima, enam, tujuh, lapan, sembilan, sepuluh.

Sepuluh biji manggis.

Considerably cheap. Why? Normally it would cost 300yen for ONE-said Iman. about 10ringgit.

-Bersyukurlah manggis kat Malaysia murah. Tuhan bagi segala macam buah-buahan kat kita. Raja buah pun kita ada. Apa lagi yang tak cukup..?

(^_^)Alhamdulillah,saya bersyukur.


Teaching Katsu Arabic Letters.

Like every other Friday, where we would go to the cramp school and teaches Japanese highschool kids on how to speak English the right way, I taught Katsu the first 3 letters of arabic. Alif, Ba, and Ta. The rest is history. This video was taken last week, and for today's lesson, I taught him the usage of kasrah, fathah, dhommah, (baris atas, bawah, depan, dll..). He managed. Then, there's -" Hal Anta Tholib?" -"Na'am, ana tholib." -"La, ana ustaz" and, -Syukran -Afwan. He can write them all. Connected. We're using Assalamualaikum - and- Walaikumsalam to greet, and say goodbye. *any other ideas on what else to teach him? I'm not very good at arabic myself, but I'm learning as well. ^-^"

A DVD Player For Me!

I just bought this 2nd hand beauty for 1980yen.

It can record DVD as well.

Ah.. I spent exactly 10,000yen tonight on this, clothes, and a little bit grocery.

Kebendaan.. (*^。^*)

When we entered someone else's class

I was free for the 2nd and 3rd period Friday, when Kouki approached me and asked if I want to join his English History class -the class was in Japanese.

Jori came in later on, and we sat in the last row of the class. As soon as the lecture starts, all the other boys stop talking, and...... they went to sleep. Great-just great.

I had no idea what the teacher was saying, since her japanese was so fast and I just can't hear her voice. No wonder they said that the class is so boring. I started doing my book-keeping, Jori with with drawing, and Koki did his homework.

When the class is about to finish, the lecturer asked them to send in a short report. On-the-spot.

..and, they panicked.

Koki : "Jori, what did she talk about?"

Jori : "How, am I supposed to know. I don't even understand her Japanese. But I can draw you something".

Koki: "You don't expect me to send in a drawing, do you??"


I have no idea what did Koki write for the report, but that is Jori's drawing for Koki, and I'm happy that I finished my book-keeping.

-what a class.

Why She Won't Wear Hijab!

*taken from A Discussion by A.Q. Alidost A conversation for Muslim sisters: "I'm so tired." "Tired of what?" "Of all these people judging me." "Who judged you?" "Like that woman, every time I sit with her, she tells me to wear hijab." "Oh, hijab and music! The mother of all topics!" "Yeah! I listen to music without hijab…haha!" "Maybe she was just giving you advice." "I don't need her advice. I know my religion. Can`t she mind her own business?" "Maybe you misunderstood. She was just being nice." "Keeping out of my business, that would be nice..." "But it's her duty to encourage you do to good." "Trust me. That was no encouragement. And what do you mean `good` ?" "Well, wearing hijab, that would be a good thing to do." "Says who?" "It's in the Qur'an, isn't it?" "Yes. She did quote me something." "She said Surah Nur, and other places of the Qur'an." "Yes, but it's not a big sin anyway. Helping people and praying is more important." "True. But big things start with small things." "That's a good point, but what you wear is not important. What's important is to have a good healthy heart." "What you wear is not important?" "That's what I said." "Then why do you spend an hour every morning fixing up?" "What do you mean?" "You spend money on cosmetics, not to mention all the time you spend on fixing your hair and low-carb dieting." "So?" "So, your appearance IS important." "No. I said wearing hijab is not an important thing in religion." "If it's not an important thing in religion, why is it mentioned in the Holy Qur'an?" "You know I can't follow all that's in Qur'an." "You mean God tells you something to do, you disobey and then it's OK?" "Yes. God is forgiving." "God is forgiving to those who repent and do not repeat their mistakes." "Says who?" "Says the same book that tells you to cover." "But I don't like hijab, it limits my freedom." "But the lotions, lipsticks, mascara and other cosmetics set you free?! What`s your definition of freedom anyway?" "Freedom is in doing whatever you like to do." "No. Freedom is in doing the right thing, not in doing whatever we wish to do." "Look! I've seen so many people who don't wear hijab and are nice people, and so many who wear hijab and are bad people." "So what? There are people who are nice to you but are alcoholic. Should we all be alcoholics? You made a stupid point." "I don't want to be an extremist or a fanatic. I'm OK the way I am without hijab." "Then you are a secular fanatic. An extremist in disobeying God." "You don't get it, if I wear hijab, who would marry me?!" "So all these people with hijab never get married?!" "Okay! What if I get married and my husband doesn't like it? And wants me to remove it?" "What if your husband wants you to go out with him on a bank robbery?!" "That's irrelevant, bank robbery is a crime." "Disobeying your Creator is not a crime?" "But then who would hire me?" "A company that respects people for who they are." "Not after 9-11" "Yes. After 9-11. Don't you know about Hanan who just got into med school? And the other one, what was her name, the girl who always wore a white hijab…ummm…" "Yasmeen?" "Yes. Yasmeen. She just finished her MBA and is now interning for GE." "Why do you reduce religion to a piece of cloth anyway?" "Why do you reduce womanhood to high heals and lipstick colors?" "You didn't answer my question." "In fact, I did. Hijab is not just a piece of cloth. It is obeying God in a difficult environment. It is courage, faith in action, and true womanhood. But your short sleeves, tight pants…" "That's called `fashion`, you live in a cave or something? First of all, hijab was founded by men who wanted to control women." "Really? I did not know men could control women by hijab." "Yes. That's what it is." "What about the women who fight their husbands to wear hijab? And women in France who are forced to remove their hijab by men? What do you say about that?" "Well, that's different." "What difference? The woman who asked you to wear hijab…she was a woman, right?" "Right, but…" "But fashions that are designed and promoted by male-dominated corporations, set you free? Men have no control on exposing women and using them as a commodity?! Give me a break!" "Wait, let me finish, I was saying…" "Saying what? You think that men control women by hijab?" "Yes." "Specifically how?" "By telling women how and what to wear, dummy!" "Doesn't TV, magazines and movies tell you what to wear, and how to be `attractive'?" "Of course, it's fashion." "Isn't that control? Pressuring you to wear what they want you to wear?" [Silence] "Not just controlling you, but also controlling the market." "What do you mean?" "I mean, you are told to look skinny and anorexic like that woman on the cover of the magazine, by men who design those magazines and sell those products." "I don't get it. What does hijab have to do with products." "It has everything to do with that. Don't you see? Hijab is a threat to consumerism, women who spend billions of dollars to look skinny and live by standards of fashion designed by men…and then here is Islam, saying trash all that nonsense and focus on your soul, not on your looks, and do not worry what men think of your looks." "Like I don't have to buy hijab? Isn't hijab a product?" "Yes, it is. It is a product that sets you free from male-dominated consumerism." "Stop lecturing me! I WILL NOT WEAR HIJAB! It is awkward, outdated, and totally not suitable for this society ... Moreover, I am only 20 and too young to wear hijab!" "Fine. Say that to your Lord, when you face Him on Judgment Day." "Fine." "Fine." [Silence] "Shut up and I don't want to hear more about hijab niqab schmijab Punjab!" [Silence] She stared at the mirror, tired of arguing with herself all this time. Successful enough, she managed to shut the voices in her head, with her own opinions triumphant in victory on the matter, and a final modern decision accepted by the society - but rejected by the Faith: "Yes!" - to curls on the hair - "No!" - to hijab! "And he(/she) is indeed a failure who corrupts it [the soul]!" [Holy Quran 91:10] Subhana'Allah!!! "Nay! You prefer the life of this world; While the hereafter is better and more lasting." [Holy Quran: 87:16-17] "You are the best community (Ummah) raised up for (the benefit of) humanity; enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah." [Holy Quran: 3:110]

Mid Term Test

This is the first class to have the mid-year test. I have no idea how good or bad will I do this time since I was so busy doing other unimportant things. x_x

Its the English propaganda class where we have to learn different words and terms that are used in business and politics advertisement. -They're pretty hard to memorize,but I found it rather interesting-minus the excessive information on America.

By the way,Petronas has been worried about how our studies are going. I don't think getting a 4 flat or a Dean's List is impossible, but even getting a 3 pointer is VERY HARD enough. This is Japan, excuse me.

Everything is in Japanese. I will say that I still-am having problem with the language; that is use by the teachers and the text book.

I heard a saying, "Our hard work and effort matters the most rather than the result". Is that really so?

What about, "No matter how hard you work, if the result is bad, then there's still no point of doing whatever that you're doing".

Ah, I totally disagree with the later.

What ever it is, I want to make it through. All this test and exams are made to make me stronger I suppose. Not only in studies, but in life as well.

*written from phone@F棟の2階!

Are we really that unuseful?

Im in a middle of my first period, Monday class; where the sensei is talking about life after University. What would one want to be? Knowing that its hard to survive in the living games nowadays.
-Even if you have graduated, they industry may don't need you at all.
-Young people have no experience, thus this makes them 'unwanted'.
(He has been talking for the past one hour. Too much input to be written..)
Im having berbelas2 kelas in one semester. Great. Just great.

She came in bangin through our door when we were about to finish our morning prayer. She was mumbling, non-stop about the noise that my washine machine made. Its no doubt that its my fault for the stupid sound that it made in the so-called "middle of the night". But our prayers has got nothing what-so-ever to do with that.

What does she have against we praying??

She said that she's going to complain to the homeowner about our morning prayer that looked too suspicious, as if we didnt sleep all night long.

What do you expect to see??

She jerked her head through our front window the next day. Wondering that we'll be praying again at noon. Crazy.

"You people make me sick! Your prayers are sick! This is Japan, so stop your so-called prayers and do what Japanese do!"

Excuse me, God is everywhere. Don't be so bias-prejudice-racist-sterotyping...(what else?) Argh! this is so stressful! She can hate us, but never ever insult our religion.

Plus, she said that there was a weird smell made whilewe were praying. Apekah?! Ingat kita solat ada pakai kemenyan ke?

I bought my tickets already~! I know, its too fast! I just came back from Malaysia less than 2 months ago! This is crazy! Again, I will be going back for 2 months; 4th of August, untill 22nd September. It's long! Too long! wah! theres so many exclamation mark! haha..! I am planning to pay Australia a visit this time. I've been wanting to go to America, but since they have the swine flu thingy there, I guess maybe next year. ^-^" So, where in Australia? -Brisbane; Gold Coast -Sydney Any other suggestion? I don't remember where are my friends studying at. Adelaide? This time, 2 Japanese friends of mine are going to Malaysia on the 25th! Yay! (Iman got one already, and she's recruiting for more~ maybe the whole class of 10 people) Any idea of what to do and where to go? *Its still to early for me to be happy about summer, but I really can't help it!

English Class.

I only had first period today, and Iman joined my 1 hour and a half movie class. We watched Enemy of The States and Other People's Money non-stop. Iman wished she had a movie-report class that sounds rather easy and hassle free.(Which is so not〜)

I went to her university afterwards; Chuo Dai which is 45 minutes away bytrain. (OMG, the journey almost killed me! Her department is so far away from the main gate, and we had to climb so many stairs!)

Her english teacher was quite nice; she's from Sydney- no wonder her english is so different from my American teacher.

One of the topic we had in the class was "Special Friend".

I had no idea it was going to be about boyfriend/girlfriend. T-T"

(Yikes,I just realized that my post really sounds like a primary school essay-!〓)

So anyway, we had to practice english as if english is our 2nd language- well it is. Its just that the teacher said that the class is to good for us. Which I do not agree on. Instead of saying what is good for us, she should be thinking about what good can we bring to the class. I mean, by having Iman in her class, Iman can also share-teach other student as well.

They're just having conversation like,

-What do you want your to friend to have?

-What type of boyfriend you are looking for?

-Why do you think people break-up?

They're just having an easy-fun-relaxing class just by talking to each other. That's great isn't it? Compared to mine, where we discuss too much about current propaganda and politics~ Ah, I've had enough of America!

Kouki finished his puzzle. It took less than 2 weeks I guess. I thought that he was out of his mind, starting a 1000 piece set puzzle in the middle of the night, when we paid him a visit.

But Kouki is Kouki. He'll go through all out to get what he wants.

He finished school early on Friday, and went back to finish this. Haha, lawak la. He sent me this picture when I was in the middle of a lecture. Adoi~ dahla phone tak silent.. T-T"

The sky part was so hard to figure out, we almost went crazy when we helped him to do this.Jigsaw puzzle is fun-- but, its hard to stop. We bought one too,

and its driving us crazy.

Thai Dramas

We had Thai for dinner. 4,500yen for 4. The Tomyamkun was superb, but... I guess I had too many things(and drama) going on my mind that the taste doesn't stick in my memory. Basically, I really didn't do anything today. Yet, I'm feeling pretty much exhausted figuring out myself and my past. What is in the past, should stay in the past. I've had enough of it, yet it still comes around, haunting me to repeat stupid mistakes. I want my Thai moments back. The soup, and the fried rice. The mushroom, and the shrimp. The laugh and the spiciness. I don't want to think about the uncertain. Memenatkan kepala, hati, dan perasaan; and what a waste of time. #The strawberry-chocolate oreo ice-cream was very good though.でも、二度と会いたくない。マジで。

What did I do today.

This is the view from the 7th floor of tower B, a very small stairway where I would pray most of the time.

Unfortunately, there were times when couples came to hang around for 'private' conversation,and left me wondering where to go next..

Still,I like this little quiet spot.
A place for me to ponder and reflect my day.

We are too small.We are nothing when we're down there.Powerless when we think we are, yet able to change the world when we think we can.

But God has made everything ready for us. Looking fromup above at what we are doing now, its too shameful.

Ah.. tell me what did I do today.

From 1st period, straight to the last 5th period, I just can't wait to go back and get a good rest.

Ah.. tell me what did I do today.

Ada apa dengan India.

Two girls came to me when I was having lunch alone at B棟 and said,

"Are you from 総合文化?"(Sougo Bunka- a name of a department here)

"Are you from India?"

"Sorry........Excuse me, what??"-too shocked. Then, when I was on my way home with a friend of mine, an uncle from another floor bumped into us, and asked,
Of course we were shocked,
"Eh... what??"
"Are you guys from India..?" "No, we're not. We're from Malaysia" "Ah... Malaysia? Oh.. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu( having the same meaning as 'nice to meet you')"
Seriously, do I look like an Indian today? Sekali, boleh lagi di maafkan. Twice?? Ini adalah sungguh tidak masuk akal.

Lovers Rock Restaurant



Our...3rd? 4th? time having dinner at this restaurant. Since Kouki introduced us (me and Iman) to this restaurant, we have been going this place everytime we pay Kouki a visit at his Cram School in Sagamihara.
   Heavy dinner? Well, it is more to, satisfaction guaranteed I supposed. We had various of Italian meal in a night, and yet we paid so little since Kouki has a 3000yen discount coupon with him if we dine with 4 people and above. Pasta, spaghetti, salads... 肉だめなんで、ベーコンも抜きでお願いします~

My 2nd saatiwan(or most would call it Baskin Robin..)in a week. They're having the special 31% off for Golden Week, since last week. It ends tonight though. Once in a while, to have an expensive ice-cream for late night supper does help me feel indulge. When was the last time I spend so much on food? 60bux per meal..still okay. 200bux for a dinner at Malay-chan was absurd! They sell a piece of beef curry puff for 8bux! 8bux per piece! for a curry puff! 冷凍品なのに! Anyway, I still love my Saatiwan.

even though they cost abt 12bux (after 31% discount) for the smallest one.

My Dinner
