Komen orang itu teguran Allah

"...Orang komen, orang kritik sebab dia sebenarnya minat kat kita, dia sayang,dia nak betulkan. Sebenarnya, kalau Nabi dapat wahyu dari Allah, teguran dari Allah, maklumat dari Allah, ilham, semua petunjuk. Tapi manusia ni, kadang-kadang Allah bagi ilham melalui komen-komen orang. Jadi, bila Allah nak didik kita adalah melalui teguran. Kebanyakan orang boleh belajar dari teguran negatif. Puji-pujian ni jadikan dia orang seronok. Memang kita perlu terima hakikat orang komen sebab dia minat. Dan yang tersirat ialah komen daripada orang ramai adalah sebenarnya teguran dari Allah..."

- Dato' Dr. Haji Mohd Fadzilah Kamsah

A reason, a season, or a lifetime...

taken from

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or
a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you
will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON . . . It is
usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have
come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you
with guidance and support, to aid you physically,
emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a
godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason
you need them to be.

Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an
inconvenient time, this person will say or do something
to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realise is that our need has been met, our
desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you
sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON . . .
Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount
of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things
you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional
foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the
person, and put what you have learned to use in all
other relationships and areas of your life. It is said
that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

AJL27 prediction...

I didn't watch any of the three episodes of Muzik Muzik semifinals but got to know the 12 finalists from the internet. There are couple of songs that I've never heard of (sorry for my ignorance), but I can say that most of those qualified to the final have good (or above average) quality. Frankly, I've never heard (and don't know how the song sounds like) of Tanpamu and Lagu.

And most notably, we will see lots of newcomers or fresh faces in our entertainment industry, like Jimmy Palikat (one hit wonder, duh! and the song to me is more like BN-theme song as there is a video on youtube showing Najib Razak danced non-stop to the song in one hari raya function), then we have Amir Jahari (who the hell?!), Bed Room Sentuary (some parks or what?), RJ (Royal Jelly?), Mojo (frankly I was quiet disappointed after googling and saw the face of the vocalist! it doesn't commensurate to the 'jambu'ness of the tune of the song). The only old-timers we will spot in the final would be Azlan (& the Typewriter) and Amy Search.

These are the songs to be contested in the final, the AJL27:
Idola – Azlan & the Typewriter
Pelangi Senja – Stacy
Terukir Di Bintang – Yuna
Anak Kampung – Jimmy Palikat & One Nation Emcee
Ombak Rindu – Hafiz & Adira
Tanpamu – Amir Jahari
Lagu – Bed Room Sentuary
Teman Pengganti – Black & RJ
Ku Akui – Hafiz
Simetri – Hazama & Amy Seach
Andai Ku Bercinta Lagi – Mojo
Patah Seribu – Shila Amzah

Some of them have been my favorite local songs, namely Pelangi Senja, Ombak Rindu and Patah Seribu, which I think all three would be a chance to be one of the top-three winners. Others that may provide strong challenge probably Terukir di Bintang (it's more a laidback song but Yuna never did well in AJL - and I'm not a fan of Yuna, still remember her appearing in Fisherman's raincoat in one of the finals), Ku Akui (well, Hafiz always delivered but I think this has got to be the weakest songs from all his songs in any AJL finals), and Simetri for the prowess of the song but Amy sounds more like a back up singer here.

If I've got to choose one winner, I'd go with Pelangi Senja or Patah Seribu.

Ok ok... just one! I'd go with Pelangi Senja.

*Anugerah Juara Lagu 27 will be held on 6th January 2013

Our greatest honor...

"Notre plus grand gloire n'est pas de ne jamais tomber mais de se relever à chaque fois que l' on tombe"

(Our greatest honor is not that we never fall down, but that we pick ourselves up again each time we fall)

Ada Mu

Merenung ke luar jendela
Melihat kebesarannya
Mensyukuri segala nikmat
Yang dikurniakan di dunia

Kau berikan ku kekuatan
Tuk berpegang pada jalan
Walau penuh dengan cabaran
Ku tahu ku adaMu Tuhan

Kerna kau yang satu
Yang setia bersama ku
Dikala ku jatuh ku bangkit kernaMu
Ku tahu ku adaMu disisi ku selalu
Bantulah hambaMu mencari keredhaanMu

Ku tahu ku adaMu
Ku adaMu selalu

Kerna kau yang satu
Yang setia bersama ku
Dikala ku jatuh ku bangkit kernaMu
Ku tahu ku adaMu disisi ku selalu
Bantulah hambaMu mencari keredhaanMu

Ku tahu ku adaMu
Ku adaMu selalu

ku merenung ke luar jendela
Melihat kebesarannya
Walau penuh dengan cabaran
Ku tahu ku adaMu Tuhan
