brainstorm >> 3

i was inspired to make this post by a post on kepalakotak
it had been on my mind since form 5...
but it wasn't till then that i really looked into it...

so, here's the situation (also known as the monty hall problem)

You're in a game show...
there are 3 doors...
behind one of them is a car...
behind the other 2, are goats...

the host let's you choose 1 door..
if you choose the right door
you win the car !
if you choose the wrong door
you don't win the car!
simple as that...

so, you chose a door....
and you're hearts racing whether you made the right choice or not !

before revealing if you made the right choice or not,
the host opens 1 of the remaining 2 doors...
behind it is a goat!

so only two doors remain, a goat and a car...

the host then gives you the option
of either staying with your chosen door,
or change to the other closed door...

The Question...

What should you do to maximize the probability of winning the prize? Should you stick with your first choice, or switch to the other door?
Or does it not matter?

Feeling low? we tend to sometimes...

Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place?
Like somehow you just don't belong
And no one understands you

Do you ever wanna run away?
Do you lock yourself in your room?
With the radio on turned up so loud 
That no one hears you screaming

When nothing feels all right
To be hurt, To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one's there to save you 

Do you wanna be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more?
Before your life is over
Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With their big fake smiles and stupid lies
While deep inside you're bleeding?

AL-Quran Al-Kareem

Al-Baqarah 1;153
" Oh you who believe! Seek help (from ALLAH )
with pateince and Solah. 
Truly! ALLAH is with those who are patient"

Al-Baqarah 1;286
" ....Allah burdens not a person 
with what he cannot cope with"

someone once asked THE PROPHET. 
"Where is ALLAH?"
He said (mafhum)
"Verily, ALLAH is close to as, 
just as the black and the white of our eyes 
are close together"

Really bored right now... supposed to be studying

This is my obsession and passion... Archery... it's an Art, more than a sport actually... here is a typical recurve bow...

my dad brought me shooting when i was in the UK... didn't take it seriously then though... but it was enough to spark my passion... i got serious once i got into secondary school here... started shooting in form 1... even on the verge of my SPM, i was still shooting... the teacher's were like so against that... "Anas, sudah2 lah dgn koko kamu tu, form 5 ni focus la SPM" ... seb baik result maintain time tu... ada point...

I skiped like 5 weeks of school in form 5... wah!...
latihan pusat MSSPK 1 week,
MSSPK 1 week,
pemilihan for MSSM 1 week,
latihan pusat MSSM 1 week,
then MSSM 1 week...

huhu... bila da abis and masuk kelas balik, agak blur gak rr.... huhu... slow2 cover balik... made it through... really miss archery... it is that sort of thing that gives you 'kepuasan' yang x terkata, seriously .........miss my coach and my team!! we were like family...

here's a target face..

white= 1,2 points
black = 3,4 points
blue = 5,6 points
red = 7,8 points
Yellow = 9,10,10(x)
if you noticed, each colour has a fine line separating it into 2 rings. The 'white' for instance, if you get an arrow, in the inner ring, it counts as 2 points, and an arrow in the outer ring gets you 1 point. For the Yellow, it's a special case. It's divided into 3; Yellow (9), Yellow (10), and Yellow(x)(bullseye).
In the score board, if you get an arrow in the bullseye, you right x instead of 10.. it still counts as 10 marks but it is used to determine who gets a higher ranking in the case of a tie... for instance if 2 archers both get 300 marks, the archer with more x's gets the higher ranking...

there are 3 things the PROPHET (p.b.u.h) encourages us to learn; Archery, Horse Riding and Swimming... only learnt 2 of them... haven't got the opportunity to learn horse riding................. yet.. iA

Mid Term results...

HAMDU LILLAH.... what more is there to say?... 
Tadi result mid term baru keluar... it allocates to 20% of the final term exam, which starts on the 10th feb .... another 15% from assignments and another 15% from practical exam... leaving 50% to the written final term exam..... doakan kejayaan kita bersama in everything... 

thinking back... i'm sure i could have done better... for the mid term... but hey... let bygones be bygones... tapi jgn tidak ambik iktibar dan pengajaran.... huhu.... look forwards, no turning back...

semalam jadikan sejarah, hari ini reality, esok adalah impian..

ALLAH  THE  ALMIGHTY says in the Quran Al-Karim:

surah ibrahim(14) ayat 7

Dan (ingatlah juga), tatkala Tuhanmu memaklumkan; "Sesungguhnya jika kamu bersyukur, pasti Kami akan menambah (nikmat) kepadamu, dan jika kamu mengingkari (nikmat-Ku), maka sesungguhnya azab-Ku sangat pedih."

2 days 1 nite

Tuesday, 6 January 2009....

the original plan was to go yesterday (Thursday)... but seeing that there's kelas tafaqquh Thursday night (which was cancled), and wednesday was a holiday, we decided to go on Tuesday.

we arranged to go when we finished our lectures at 2pm, but we went at 2.30 seeing that Afiq had some stuff to settle (assingments... love them)... and we had to pray 1st neway... 

he said his house was a little further than mandarah. We went by Tramco (it's a public tranport here, a van). we had to transit 3 times before getting there! First from manshiyyah (my place) to mandarah. Then to tobiyah and finally mo'diyyah. the latter, we didn't even get there, we just went in that direction, and got down in the middle of nowhere... seriously... altogether, it sumed up to about one and a half hours... then said rest of the way would be on foot. He told us to wait beside the road... ingatkan nak ambik apa... dia ambik basikal!... that means there still quite a distance that needs to be covered... huhu

His name is As-Soffi... a gardener that works at Alexandria University... we got to know him at the IT centre where we normally have our Zohor prayer... while waiting for the azan, we normally have a chat... eventually, he invited us to his house... so there we were.

this is the distance we had to cover... and this picture was taken like one thirds of the way, behind me was a considerable distance. 

this was on the following day... 
it's like a trend here... all the buildings are like built half way... they complete a few stories, and leave it that way... so that later they can add another story if they need to do so... besides, rain is rare occurence in egypt... his house was one story... the roof was open and we lepak kat atas roof... he had a chicken and duck pen up on the roof... he said is was for the eggs and meat every now and then.... it was winter, so the sun was just nice... in summer, the roof is the last place you'd wan't to be! that cute thing on my lap is his daughter, Asma.

This was the night before. As-Soffi had his friends over. we watched ong-bak together and had "shai">>> tea ... you could also say we talked the night through, cause we didn't really watch it, it was just sort of a background thingy......... It was funny though, you know the language barrier thingy... yeah, i would like say something, and they would shake their heads and frown their eyebrows (gesture of 'What?')... and when they said something we would do the same thing... huhu... our hands would do all sorts of gestures to get what we were trying to say through... haha... it was at this time I appreciated my 3 months at UKM, persediaan. kursus bahasa arab.... huhu... imagine if i came without it!!!............. We were instantly a hit amongst them... they adored us... haha... 

When we first arrived, we were in a very rural area, your typical arab village, orchards, farms, sheep, goats, chickens.... we got a very welcome greeting... i was introduced to the members of the house... it turned out As-Soffi had 2 wives, his dad passed away, his mum was live and kicking and his eldest son Hassan, was turning 6 years old (the one beside me).... As-Sofi told us to teach hassan English... huhu... how could i decline... turns out he went to school..... he brought us his books and showed us what he had learned... typical kindergarten english.. peice of cake... after that, he showed us his computer.... As-Soffi had been trying to install microsoft office on it but didn't know how... we did it for him... 

Coincidentally, tuesday was the 9th of Muharram. the day before hari asyura and we were fasting. so As-Soffi had the pleasure of treating us to 'iftar'>>>break fast... on Sunday, during our egyptian culture class, Prof. Maha said that if you get invited to an egyptian's house, just go and eat!... she couldn't be more true.... huhu... the food was nice, but we were stuffed!!... the thing is, 'aib kalau dia hulur makanan kita x ambik... this picture is just the side dish... yeah, rice is just a side dish... the main dish is 'eeish>>>roti arab.... comparable to roti nan or capati... it's not like the roti arab we have in Malaysia... and each peice was the size of 2 and a half dishes in the picture... (the dishes with the meet and the 'mee', plus half of the fish plate)... with effort i finished mine... then he gave me another one! ... i was so full i couldn't finish any of the dishes... so i gave a shot at the soup (at least i'll finish 1 dish i thought) ... with a lot of effort i did... and he filled it right back up!... during this time, i had told him many times i was full, "you haven't eaten yet, Anas" would be his answer. wtfish! ... i gave up telling him, and gave up eating... finally he lit the red light.... phew!
I imagined the ladies would come out and collect the dishes once we were done, but nope, he lifted up the whole table and brought it to the kitchen!....
it's an arab thing here, when they have guests, the ladies will not eat together with... they'll eat once we're done... it's to respect the guests...

i learnt later from akhtar that if you don't want anymore, don't finish it... tea for instance... to us kalau x habis 'aib rite?... coz membazir... but to them, if we finish it... means x ckup.. nak lagi... so dia akan refill....  biar je cawan tu separuh penuh... jgn habiskan.... xpe.... 'musy musykilah'>>>>no problem

When night fell, it was freakin' cold... you could see your breath as a mist outside... kluar asap!... we said we would like to go back on wednesday at around zohor... 'meshi'>>>alright was the answer........We slept at 'bout 11 that night after watching ong-bak... (11 is kinda late here in egypt since isyak is at 6.30 now)

the next day, was hari asyura... we said we would like to fast, so they prepared sahur for us... i was more stern this time in saying i've had enough... it was (really2)2 cold... even inside the house cakap keluar asap... waktu mandi, dahla air sejuk... bbrrrr.... satu badan aku kluar asap... kluar2 beku.... haha.... after subuh baca jap, then tido.... bangun around 9... jadi tutor skli lagi kepada hassan... then at 11 As-Soffi told us that one of his friends from yesterday, yahya (4th pic, 1st from lest) said he wanted to treat us to iftar that day................ (no way!) esoknya dah la lecture, balik kul brapa kalo ca2... dia nak jugak... huhu.... susah betul ktorang nak tolak pelawaan dia... pastu yahya tu datang pulak... jenuh laa kitorang cakap ada banyak keja, esok ada lecture, kat manshiyyah pun ada wat 'iftar jama'ie'>>>buka puasa ramai2.... dia nak jugak... alasan 1st kitorang dia jwb, balik malam tu buat laa, second dia jwab malam tu balik laa... esok gi laa lecture, alasan third dia jwb diorang buka puasa sana, anas ngan afiq buka puasa sini.... dia nak jugak simpan kitorang.... err... thanks but no thanks.... jenuh kitorang cuba jelaskan.... last2 they reluctantly agreed with us.... yahya keluar dari rumah, merajuk agaknya...  haha 

At Zohor (12pm) we went to the mosque with our bags... said our thanks and goodbyes... we were a big hit amongst the villagers too, especially the sheikh..... when we finished prayer... we got quite a bit of attention.. the kids were as if meeting a movie star or something... seriously... they surrounded us and smiled at each other... maybe it was because of my charm... ahakz.... kidding!.... i played along, asked their names and how they were doing.... neway as we made our way out of the village, quite a bunch followed us... the crowd grew and grew.... they don't see foreigners often... then we made our way home.... 

after that was not so memorable
arrived at the hostel around asar 3pm...... 
food poisoning! ... (must of been something in the food)

There is this thief... he steals stuff... one day he went stealing... while doing so, he met another thief... he was also stealing stuff... he says to the other thief... "you take that and that"... "i'll take this and this"...
they got away... and never met each other again..

simple story....

the 1st thief should of at least told the second thief that stealing is wrong... shouldn't he?

it has been stressed many times in the Quran by THE ALMIGHTY, and in the hadiths by THE PROPHET

"ta'mur bilma'aruf wa tanhau 'anil mungkar" >>>> ajaklah kepada kebaikan dan tegahlah kemungkaran.
it is the responsibility of each and every one of US, since the moment we were brought into this world as khalifah...

so the thief just now, got 2 sins i.e number one = stealing.... number 2 = tidak menegur si pencuri kedua yang tengah mencuri (wajib menegur kemungkaran)... kalau dia tegur pencuri kedua... dia balik dengan membawa 1 dosa je i.e mencuri...

what i'm trying to say here is... don't say "alah, siapalah aku nak tegur orang" if we keep that kind of mentality, our ummah will never rise up... it's not a question of if kita layak atau tidak untuk menegur, persoalannya, bukankah memang kwajiban kita?

you see... ISLAM penuh hikmah... kalau kita tegur orang... mesti lah kita rasa segan paling tidak kepada diri sendiri kalau kita sendiri buat perkara yang kita tegur tu... so it is as a motivation to ourselves to become a better person (publisher take note here!!!)... Subhanallah...

“Patutkah kamu menyuruh manusia supaya berbuat kebaikan sedang kamu lupa akan diri kamu sendiri; padahal kamu semua membaca Kitab Allah, tidakkah kamu berakal?” (Al-Baqarah: 44)..

you see? how beautiful the way of life brought to us by ALLAH is (ISLAM)

WAIT there's more... Islam dosn' just tell us to 'do this' and 'do that'.... islam tells us HOW to do it..
in this case... dlm menegur orang... how is it done??...

'please tegur kalo clap, this is as i remember it'
sabda Nabi ; "waman raa minkum mungkaran, falyughairuhu biyadihi, faillam yastati' fabilisanih, faillam yastati' fabiqalbihi wazalika ad'afuliman"
>>>>>>barangsiapa di kalangan kamu yang melihat kemungkaran, hendaklah kamu mencegahnya dgn tangan, sekiranya tidak mampu, hendaklah kamu menegahnya dengan percakapan, sekiranya tidak mampu hendaklah kamu mencegahnya dengan hati, dan itulah selemah-lemah iman...

tangan means authority that we have... percakapan is just as it's written and what is meant by hati is that we hate perbuatan mungkar itu, dan mendoakan hidayah kepada si pelaku kemungakran itu... subhanallah
also, the hadith ends with 'dan itulah selemah-lemah iman'... so what does that mean? think 'bout it...
