This is no ordinary village.It is the restaurant belonging to Pullman Hotel,Putrajaya.When I peeked to check the price,I told myself that the only things I could afford is to take photo of this nice 'floatinf' restaurant and free smell if I come at night!By the way, the ambience around this area is very conducive for walking,running,cycling and boating.Have a good weekend to all.
Saya kira kita semua sudah dapat menjaga solat setiap hari,insyaAllah.Ada satu perkara yang saya ingin berpesan kepada diri saya dan rakan2 pembaca ialah kita sentiasa peka kepada aspek untuk usaha berterusan dalam pembaikian dan pertingkatkan mutu solat kita dengan menyemak kembali cara kita bersolat,bacaan kita dan khusyuk kita semasa bersolat dengan membaca buku2 dan belajar dari ustaz/ustazah.
Sama2 kita sentiasa menjaga tiang agama...Yang penting solat kita diterima olih Allah swt.Jika ditolak,kita amatlah rugi..
Sesungguhnya Tuhanmu (wahai Muhammad) mengetahui bahawasanya engkau bangun (sembahyang Tahajjud) selama kurang dari dua pertiga malam, dan selama satu perduanya, dan selama satu pertiganya; dan (demikian juga dilakukan oleh) segolongan dari orang-orang yang bersama-samamu (kerana hendak menepati perintah yang terdahulu); padahal Allah jualah yang menentukan dengan tepat kadar masa malam dan siang. Ia mengetahui bahawa kamu tidak sekali-kali akan dapat mengira dengan tepat kadar masa itu, lalu Ia menarik balik perintahNya yang terdahulu (dengan memberi kemudahan) kepada kamu; oleh itu bacalah mana-mana yang mudah kamu dapat membacanya dari Al-Quran (dalam sembahyang). Ia juga mengetahui bahawa akan ada di antara kamu orang-orang yang sakit; dan yang lainnya orang-orang yang musafir di muka bumi untuk mencari rezeki dari limpah kurnia Allah; dan yang lainnya lagi orang-orang yang berjuang pada jalan Allah (membela agamaNya). Maka bacalah mana-mana yang sudah kamu dapat membacanya dari Al-Quran; dan dirikanlah sembahyang serta berikanlah zakat; dan berilah pinjaman kepada Allah sebagai pinjaman yang baik (ikhlas). Dan (ingatlah), apa jua kebaikan yang kamu kerjakan sebagai bekalan untuk diri kamu, tentulah kamu akan mendapat balasannya pada sisi Allah, -sebagai balasan yang sebaik-baiknya dan yang amat besar pahalanya. Dan mintalah ampun kepada Allah; sesungguhnya Allah Maha Pengampun, lagi Maha Mengasihani.
Let me share the good news with my friends: I passed the test to be a licenced amateur radio operator yesterday[exam taken on 15/12/2011] and soon I am looking forward to get my callsign and join MARES.Alhamdulilah.Two situations that motivate me to take examination and use radio communication.First ,when a natural disaster happens and I love to be where the action is-to know what is going on and to contribute anyway I can.Second, when I go cycling where we need to communicate with our group members as we move along the trail...
The two cases I mentioned above are event management examples where communication is very important to ensure its smooth and optimal operation.Anything can happen during an event.Safety is number one!
Honestly,I was scared to take this exam.It has been more than 30 years since I took professional interview to be registered at a P.Eng.I was worried whether I could still comprehend some basic electronics,do simple calculations and retain some memory.Thank God,my brain still works albeit slowly.I am grateful to Allah swt for His mercy on me and my thanks to all my friends who gave me the notes to study[Fahroe Ibrahim] and advice to follow.[Ruslan Latiff].Thank guys.
Today,MCMC issued me AA and approved my callsign 9W2PAD.In the World of Hams,I will be known as Nine Whiskey Two Papa Alpha Delta beginning today.To my friends who already have your callsigns,kindly let me know...I am new in this World of Hams.Kindly give me some assistance as I am learning to 'talk' the new language and please forgive me for my unrefined manners...
A young 12 yr old girl, Kamilia is in need of your help please. She's in the UH Paediatric cancer ward with critical luekemia. She needs A+ blood type donors, preferably men under 50 to harvest white blood cells from.
This is the message from Kamilia's mum:
"Salam to all. My name is Rina. My daughter, Kamilia has AML leukemia. A week ago she developed complications due to pneumonia. Her body is unable to fight the infection as she has no white cells. Doctors have given the maximum dosage of antibiotics but it has yet to show results.
We are trying something fairly new now. What we need are white cells from donors. Procedure is that there will be a briefing by the specialist for the potential donor before we can proceed with the blood donation.
Should you be keen, some of your time will definitely need to be invested as its not as straight forward as a normal blood drive.
Why we prefer male is because their veins are bigger and the machine is highly sensitive. O+ is acceptable too. If that's ok with you, then do call me at 012 9196 955.
So does anyone fit the bill? If you or anyone you know are willing to assist, please call Rina.
FYI, I got this message from my niece, Aishah, Rina's friend.
Appreciate if you can forward this message to others.
Amsterdam is embarking on an ambitious experiment to attract foreign creatives: An invite-only, public/private-funded school and accelerator for international creative minds, leaders, and entrepreneurs. THNK: The Amsterdam School of Creative Leadership opened several weeks ago with an initial class of 30 drawn from across Europe, the United States, China, India, Israel, Mauritius, and South Africa. Classes and mentoring at THNK are held both in Amsterdam--in a home base inside a converted gasworks--and via telecommuting once participants return to their home countries.
THNK's program lasts 18 months and has a €39,500 tuition fee. The first six months of the program are spent in short, week-long intensives in Amsterdam and telecommuting; after that half-year period, participants transition into a more conventional accelerator program where faculty assist them with their projects of choice. To Amsterdam's credit, they've recruited some interesting faculty members for the program. Faculty members are primarily Dutch but also include other European and American experts. The organization's advisory board includes Stanford d.school founder George Kembel, Creative Commons vice chair Esther Wojcicki, Dutch architect Ben Van Berkel, and designer Marcel Wanders.
For Amsterdam, THNK is a slick business development project that simultaneously doubles as soft diplomacy. The thinkers and doers who will be joining in THNK's activities will be connected with local entrepreneurs, artists, and firms--whom the city is doubtlessly hoping will be back in the future. THNK is a public-private partnership that is supported by the Dutch government, the City of Amsterdam, the Province of North Holland, Vodafone, McKinsey & Company, KLM Airlines, and a host of other private and public entities. McKinsey and Vodafone aren't participating merely to be good philanthropists: Both firms have large presences in the Netherlands and doubtlessly expect that the accelerator will provide development opportunities and future potential. Although Amsterdam has a robust presence in the high-tech and design worlds, it has been overshadowed by London and Berlin as of late.
I was here for the first time yesterday and met my old classmate Mr Lee when we were in TIKL in 1969!I was really impressed by his prowess to run 6km on a hilly trail like this garden!I would be happy and grateful if I could walk 6km in 60 minutes!
By the way,my wife and me got a pleasant suprise that the garden is almost full of people and I am glad that nowadays more and more people are health conscious.The hefty medical expenses at private hospital is one great contribution.My riding buddy used to say that it is more fun to buy a new bicycle to ride than paying rich medical consultants at private hospitals.I could not agree more.
I strongly recommend to my firends who live within 30 minutes drive from Bukit Jalil to come and walk/run here.Easy access,ample parking,nice views(like mini FRIM to me),safe and friendly environment.
I got my first iPad on 16th March,2012 and yesterday I spent more than 2 hours exploring or rather playing with it.In the morning,I have my business breakfast meeting with my friend and managed to show him how convenient it was for me to use it for my project management coaching session.My friend prepared all his notes and presentation in his PC but he did not know how to get them on his Samsung tablet.A friend of his recommended that he send his files to himself and read it on on his Samsung tablet.I was happy to show him how I did it using Dropbox and I can download any files whenever and were ever I need them.Thanks to MHI for his tips.
My first use of iPad2 was to read emails.Formerly I used my smart phone but the letters get smaller as I get older.Now,I use iPad more than my smart phone to read and reply my email when I am on the go.I am still old fashion.When I am at home or in my office,I still prefer the good old pc.I think it is the keyboard!When I could save more money,I want to get a mac pro!
From my few days experience,iPad is a great content consumption gadget and I love it.The format and style are great!What got me looking for hours at iPad is the photos from all over the world!
Last night,I tried to play online game Let's Draw with Nazley.Not bad and I like it.Next week,I plan to explore more into other areas of my professional interests.I can't play all the time because I need to earn money to pay my bills.
