Bersemangat di bulan Merdeka

This year august is a busy busy month with so much happening almost all at once.

Theres the end of syaban.

The beginning of ramadhan.

And also our independence day.

So the monthly assembly we had today was a bit out of the ordinary.  hosted by JPS, it was by far the longest & most exciting assembly we'd had for a long time (as exciting as a gathering of bored fidgety people can get la hehehe). putting aside the long mandatory speeches, this time there was the emotionally heartfelt doa by the ustaz (he was moved to tears while reciting it), the lively choir, well executed merdeka pantomine and the rousing finale of jalur gemilang medley by all present.

 A rousing finale of MERDEKA!!


Wah balik ofis dalam keadaan yang cukup bersemangat ;p

It also marked the last aerobic session at the ladies gym that i frequent.  no classes during ramadhan, probably bcos its core customers are mainly muslims. many were lamenting the fact that exercise would now cease to be their priority, but i beg to differ.  hendak seribu daya.  work out in the mornings when the weather is cool and there's still the residue of sahur to sustain you. and go for the max during tarawih, that in itself is both ibadah & riadah :D 


Lets make the most of ramadhan. we might not be around for the next one.

Justiffa,

We may not be around for the next one... so profound and so true. It is what that has coaxed me to do my best every time Ramadhan comes (but whether my best is good enough, that's debatable... hehehe..).

The incident that triggered this happened some years ago. It was the last day of terawih prayers at the mosque near my house. Upon completion of the witir prayers, I turned to salam the old man praying next to me... he smiled and said, `Alhamdulillah, cukup puasa saya tahun ini... mudah-mudahan berjumpa lagi puasa tahun depan.'

Oldstock, yg penting we've given our best, the rest we leave to HIM ;p

Mati itu pasti but its so part of life that we tend to forget its significance & direct effect on ourselves. semoga selalu diberi peringatan oleh NYA. selamat beribadah to u & family :D
