terowong gelap

Pujukan buat hati yang sayu...


Terowong panjang. Terowong kelam.
Kadangkala zahir. Kadangkala lutsinar.
Wahai musafir, kamu lebih mengerti pahitnya.
Dan jika pahit itu adalah kebenaran.
Jangan berhenti di pintu.
Jangan mengubah arah tuju.
Larilah masuk dengan laju.
Kuatkan semangatmu.
Kerana telah dijanjikan sesuatu yang indah akan kau temu.

Manis ada hujungnya.
Pahit sama sahaja.
Manis tak datang sekali.
Pahit tak datang selalu.

Wahai musafir, tatkala hatimu meruntun sedih.
Tatkala jiwamu terasa pedih.
Dan air mata tak putus mengalir.
Ingatlah, wahai musafir.
Accentuate the positive.
There'll always be light at the end of the tunnel.
Dugaan yang berat hanya untuk hamba-Nya yang hebat.






"On no soul does Allah place a burden greater than it can bear.
It gets every good that it earns and pays for what it had done."
-Al-Baqarah-

erti sebuah kehilangan


Aku tidak disitu.
Aku tidak disitu.
Sebentar tadi, semasa dahulu.

Air mataku menitis laju membasahi pipi
..menceritakan sebuah kisah duka
..mengungkapkan sebuah kisah penuh nestapa
..menzahirkan bibit-bibit penyesalan yang tak lagi bermakna

Aku tersedar dari lamunan tatkala sedarnya aku kamu tak akan sedar lagi.
Tak ada lagi kata-katamu yang sering aku berontak.
Tak ada lagi permintaan darimu yang acap kali aku tolak.
Tak ada lagi kamu...yang aku...yang aku...
..yang aku sayang.

Maafkan aku
seluruh kewujudanmu tak mampu membentuk aku menjadi insan kamil.
Akhirnya kamu tinggalkan aku seorang guru yang hebat bernama Kehilangan.


I learned the hard way.


Dari Abu Hurairah r.a., Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. bersabda: "Apabila matinya seorang anak Adam, maka putuslah segala amalnya kecuali tiga perkara - sedekah jariah, ilmu bermanfaat dan doa anak yang soleh."
(Hadis riwayat Imam Ahmad)

ramalan cuaca hati


Hati itu tenang dengan kebaikan, gelisah dengan dosa dan kesalahan.

ibu tua


Ibu tua itu
dimamah usia..

Tubuhnya tulang berbalut kulit
Pandangan mata juga makin sempit
Kaki yang dahulunya meredah sawah kini payah digerak
Tangan yang dahulunya gagah mencangkul kini terketar-ketar
Usia menarik kudratnya pergi

Ibu tua itu
ditelan sunyi..

Si teman hidup dah dipanggil Ilahi
Anak cucu dengan hidup sendiri
Kisah duka tidak terkongsi...hanya berdoa di dalam hati
Hari ke hari duduk di jendela menanti pelangi
Hari ke hari menunggu mati



"Funny when you're dead how people start listening"

berapa banyak masa yang kita ada sebenarnya?


Berapa banyak masa yang kita ada dalam hidup ini?

Bukan beberapa tahun mahupun abad.
Bukan juga 365 hari.
Bukan 30 hari atau 24 jam.

Tapi kita cuma ada detik ini.
Ya, detik ini.

Detik yang lalu sudah pergi dan menjadi sejarah.
Detik seterusnya adalah sesuatu yang tidak pasti.
Mungkin saat ini kita masih diberi peluang dan saat kemudiannya tidak.
Mungkin saat ini kita sungguh tinggi darjatnya dan saat kemudiannya miskin hina.
Mungkin saat ini jantung orang yang paling kita sayang berdegup dan saat kemudiannya tidak.
Mungkin saat ini jantung kita masih berdegup dan saat kemudiannya tidak.

Carpe diem.

Dan jika detik ini kita lalai dan leka..
semoga ada detik seterusnya untuk kembali ke pangkal jalan semula.



"Demi masa, sesungguhnya manusia itu sentiasa dalam kerugian"
-Al-Asr-

jauh


Berduka lara bila berjauh dengan'nya' tapi boleh tak sedar bila berjauh denganNya.

*istighfar*

udang


Sedangkan kalau masak udang yang sudah ditanggalkan kulit, hilang manisnya bila nak makan. Apatah lagi kalau....

ps - ini bukan petua memasak.

I rasa I dah jatuh cinta dengan Halia

Yes, Mr. H iaitu Halia =) Lately I jadi suka makan makanan berHalia. For example, ayam masak halia, bubur ada halia (and lobak masin!! sedap!), ginger soda, sup ada halia (I buat sendiri) etc. Sebenarnya nak bagitau I jumpa resepi Ginger-Glazed Shrimp....again kat rachaelraymag.com. Dari tadi I duk promote Rachael Ray nampaknya...

Anyway cara2 nak buat Udang Masak Halia nie sonanglah yang amat =

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons ginger preserves
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves (daun ketumbar ye sayang)

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until partially cooked, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the ginger preserves and cook until the shrimp are pink and firm, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat and toss with the lime juice and cilantro; season to taste with salt and pepper.

I rasa yang nie, dalam 15 -20 minutes boleh siap nie =) I rasa kalau I buat yang nie, cilantro tue akan diabaikan pastu ginger preserves digantikan dengan fresh ginger. Agak2 masih sedap tak ye....

Cucur Cauliflower... wow!

The title of the recipe is actually Cauliflower Fritters so direct translation nye jadi Cucur Bunga Kubis. Hahaha. Kelakar la pulak. I love Cauliflower =) Masa dekat Akasia, nak order makan boleh tulis je atas paper. Biasanya apa yang I order would be Nasi Putih + Ayam goreng kunyit+carrot+cauliflower. Heee~

This recipe is from rachaelraymag.com juga =) Kena cakap, kalau tidak jadi plagiarism.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 1/4 pounds), trimmed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • One 10-ounce bag salad greens (can I just ignore this =D tak suka sayur)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Steam the cauliflower until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, mash and let cool for 10 minutes. Stir in the flour and egg, season with salt and pepper and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Roll 1/4 cupfuls into balls, then flatten into patties, to make a total of 12 to 14. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry the patties until golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Serve with the salad greens tossed in olive oil and the lemon juice.

Do the Math - 15 + 10 + 15 = 40 minutes untuk prepare pastu goreng2. Around 1 hour or lebih baru boleh get everything ready la.

I love Salmon..SALMON not SALMAN or Salman Khan =)

Ikan salmon memang mahal tapi sedap =) Kalau ada butang LIKE dekat ikan salmon, dah lama I tekan. Haha. Resepi #2 nie sebenarnya Garlic-Dill Salmon. Masih dari rachaelraymag.com. Terkial-kial jugak aku cari dictionary tadi nak tahu apekebendenye 'dill' itu, rupanya jintan =.="" Jintan tue cemana? I pun tak taw :D Yang mcm bunga tue eh? NVM, nanti tanya my father. Haha

Ingredients:

  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 1 3/4 pounds total)

Directions:

  1. In a medium baking dish, combine the garlic, orange juice, lemon juice and dill. Place the salmon, skin side up, in the marinade and refrigerate for up to 3 hours. Preheat the oven to 375°. Discard half of the marinade and bake the fish in the remaining sauce until cooked through, about 15 minutes.


Kan dia cakap refrigerate up to 3 hours. I think itu sangat best sebab pagi2 tue dalam 9.30 boleh start buat pastu 9.45 ltak dalam fridge lepas 3 hours, 12.45, masukkan dalam oven then set untuk 15 minutes pastu boleh keluar amik anak sedara I dari skola pastu balik, lunch dahh ready!! =D Macam best~

Marinated Flank Steak...macam sedap!

Masa kecik2 dulu kalau gi punggah almari and kantoi dengan kakak mesti kakak kasi ayat nie "Haa....what are you doing??", and I would answer confidently (siap grinning lagi) "I'm doing nothing!". Haha Grammatically wrong and kakak would always always correct me.

Okay, enough of Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah. Alkisahnya, these days I'm basically doing nothing =D So today Cikgu suruh belajar masak (T_T). Dan memandangkan I masih amatur dalam bidang masakan compared to Cikgu, I can start with masakan yang guna bahan sikit sikit saja. So, tadi I tanya Chef Google, ada tak recipe 5-ingredient je. Chef Google pun suruh I tengok rachealraymag.com dan I jumpa la several recipes yang I rasa I nak try (bila nak try tue....I tak pasti..heee~). As mentioned above, yea above, pi scroll sampai kat atas tue, this is the external hard disk for my brain. So, di malam yang indah ini, I nak save beberapa recipe =)

One of them is the Marinated Flank Steak!

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup bottled teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 pounds flank steak
  • 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard

Directions:

  1. In a baking dish, combine the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce and garlic. Make 1/4-inch-deep cuts about 1/2 inch apart on both sides of the steak, cutting diagonally across the grain. Rub both sides with the mustard and place the steak in the marinade. Refrigerate for up to 3 hours, turning occasionally. Preheat the broiler and line a shallow pan with foil. Broil for 6 minutes on each side for medium-rare, basting once on each side with remaining marinade. Let rest before slicing across the grain.

sweetness of faith

Adakalanya kita mencari.
Dari dasar laut hingga ke puncak gunung.
Mencari sesuatu yang kita tidak pasti apa itu.
Mungkin ini.


Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said :
There are three qualities that if a person has them, they will taste the sweetness of faith. These three qualities are:
1. One loves Allah and His messenger more than anything else.
2. One loves another for the sake of Allah.
3. One hates to go back to disbelief as much as he hates to be thrown into the Hell Fire.

forgotten love


When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let ...her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her! With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again. In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage. This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request. I told Jane about my wife's divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully. My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outsidethe door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her. On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger. She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily. Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head. Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day. But her much lighter weight made me sad.

On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind...I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore. She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart. That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push thru with the divorce.

-- At least, in the eyes of our son--- I'm a loving husband.... The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves.
So find time to be your spouse's friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage! If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you. If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Tak mustahil suatu masa kita lupa bahawa kita masih sangat mencintai seseorang yang pernah kita sangat cintai. Dalam meniti arus kehidupan yang mencabar, kadangkala kita lupa untuk melihat, untuk benar-benar melihat teman kita. Kita lupa untuk mengucup dahinya, memegang tangannya dan melangkah bersama
sepertimana yang kita lakukan pada mulanya dulu
...seperti yang kita janji kita akan lakukan selalu.




The worst reconciliation is better than the best divorce.

daerah ini


Daerah ini...
penuh dengan keindahan
memberi jiwa sebuah ketenangan
sebuah ketenangan yang lama dicari

Daerah selesa ini...
baru ku terokai semalam
ingin ku jadikannya tempat tinggal diri yang naif ini
buat hari ini...buat hari esok..buat hari seterusnya hingga nafasku terhenti

Daerah selamat ini...
namanya Disisi Kamu
maka rangkullah aku dan jangan pernah lepaskan
kerana apa maknanya berada di Disisi Kamu tanpa kamu disisi

the blessing


It's a beautiful gift
that many received
yet many had to wait for years for it too
and some never even get.

I heard some gifts were being flushed away
Some were stabbed repeatedly
Some ended up in dumpsters
Oh yes, some were hit...and strangled

I read that many gifts were repacked too
and left by the roadsides
..in front of somebody's house
..beside a drain
and many other places I couldn't imagine.
Some were lucky to be picked up by strangers
Some returned to where they came from

Children are a blessing to be cherished, aren't they?
