A Story to live by

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a

before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.

you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

before you complain about life - Think of someone who died
too early on this earth.

you complain about your children - Think of someone who
desires children but they're barren...

you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or
sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.

whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.

And when
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who! wish they had your

before you think of pointing the finger or condemning
another - Remember that not one of us is without sin.

And when
depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on
your face and think: you're alive and still

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: 'When a man dies and his
relatives are busy in funeral, there stands an extremely handsome man by
his head. When the dead body is shrouded, that man gets in between the
shroud and the chest of the deceased.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) bersabda : 'Bila seseorang lelaki
itu mati dan saudaranya sibuk dengan pengebumiannya, berdiri lelaki yang
betul-betul kacak di bahagian kepalanya. Bila mayatnya dikapan, lelaki itu
berada di antara kain kapan dan si mati.

Selepas pengebumian, semua orang pulang ke rumah, 2 malaikat Mungkar dan
Nakir, datang dalam kubur dan cuba memisahkan lelaki kacak ini supaya
mereka boleh menyoal lelaki yang telah meninggal itu seorang diri mengenai
ketaatannya kepada Allah. Tapi lelaki kacak itu berkata,
Dia adalah temanku, dia adalah kawanku. Aku takkan meninggalkannya seorang
diri walau apa pun. Jika kamu ditetapkan untuk menyoal, lakukanlah
tugasmu. Aku tidak boleh meninggalkannya sehingga aku dapati dia
dimasukkan ke dalam Syurga.'

Thereafter he turns to his dead companion and says, 'I am the Qur'an,
which you used to read, sometimes in a loud voice and sometimes in a low
voice. Do not worry. After the interrogation of Munkar and Naker, you will
have no grief.'

Selepas itu dia berpaling pada temannya yang meninggal dan berkata,'Aku
adalah Al-Quran, yang mana kamu membacanya, kadang-kadang dengan suara
yang nyaring dan kadang-kadang dengan suara yang perlahan. Jangan bimbang.
Selepas soal siasat dari Mungkar dan Nakir, kamu tidak akan bersedih.'

When the interrogation is over, the handsome man arranges for him from
Al-Mala'ul A'laa (the angels in Heaven) silk bedding filled with musk.

Selepas soal siasat selesai, lelaki kacak mengatur untuknya daripada
Al-Mala'ul A'laa (malaikat dalam Syurga) tempat tidur dari sutera yang
dipenuhi bauan kesturi

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: 'On the Day of Judgement,
before Allah, no other Intercessor will have a greater status than the
Qur'an, neither a Prophet nor an angel.'

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) bersabda :'Di hari pengadilan, di
hadapan Allah, tiada syafaat yang lebih baik darjatnya daripada Quran,
mahupun dari nabi atau malaikat.'

Our holiday photos

They have 3 pools in this resort. The main pool was pretty but bit crowded with lot of children, we prefer the south pool, not many people using the pool as they all were more busy sunbeding. We had the pool for ourself.

One of the activitie the resort organised was towel folding. Yusila & I book for this class. This were our creations. We were good.

The jacuzzi pools at women section. The left pool is fill with cold water and the right is the one you want, the water temp was about 43c, hot and relaxing. Yusila and me had a very relasing time in the pool after a day shopping at Phuket town.

After using the jaccuzi at the gym, we had a little walk around the resort, we found a little cart selling art using dry cow skin, the craft is just like the wayang kulit puppet. Loves it, Yusila bought me a couple for my belated birthday present. I also bought some for myself.

Madura Spa, Merriott Phuket. Very posh. We tried the thai massage for 60 minutes. They clean our foots using milk and sea salt, than nest to the massage, it was relaxing.
