happiness is..

 بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

Persinggahan ini sebentar cuma. 
Ada tujuan, ada panduannya. 
Tersurat sedia buat tiap jiwa.
Rezeki ada di mana - mana.
Maka, pungutlah. 

Destinasi itu di hujung sana. 
Kalah menang itu lumrah.
Hati itu ingin pulang ke taman-Nya. 
Bawa fitrahmu bersama.
Maka, bersegeralah. 

Berlumba mencari chenta-Nya. 
Genggam rindu-Nya. 
Apa bukti kau bilang kau chenta andai tidak diuji sebegini rupa?
Kerna tiada makna apa yang ada andai chenta-Nya tiada bersama.

'Be in the world as if you were a stranger or a traveller along the path.'
(HR Al Bukhari)

Ini, definisi bahagia dia.

who you are?

I stare at my reflection in the mirror
Why am I doing this to myself?
Losing my mind on a tiny error
I nearly left the real me on the shelf
No, no, no, no, no,no

Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

Tears don't mean you're losing
Everybody's bruising
Just be true to who you are
Brushing my hair, do I look perfect?

I forgot what to do to fit the mould, yeah
The more I try the less it's working, yeah, yeah, yeah
'Cause everything inside me screams
No, no, no, no, no

But tears don't mean you're losing
Everybody's bruising
There's nothing wrong with who you are

Yes, no's, egos, fake shows like whoa
Just go and leave me alone
Real talk, real life, good luck, good night
With a smile, that's my home, that's my home, no
No, no, no, no, no

Tears don't mean you're losing
Everybody's bruising
Just be true to who you are

She's faced the hardest times you could imagine
And many times her eyes fought back the tears
And when her youthful world was about to fall in
Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears

And a sorrow no one hears
Still rings in midnight silence, in her ears

Let her cry, for she's a lady
Let her dream, she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower growing wild

And if by chance that I should hold her
Let me hold her for a time
And if allowed just one possession
I would take her in my arms, to be mine

Be careful how you touch her, she'll awaken
As sleep's the only freedom that she knows
And when you walk into her eyes, you won't believe
The way she's always paying for a debt she never owes

And a silent wind still blows
That only she can hear, so she goes

Let her cry, for she's a lady
Let her dream, she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower, growing wild

Let her cry, oh, she's a lady
Let her dream, 'cause she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower growing wild
She's a flower growing wild, she's a flower growing wild

-never push a loyal person to the point where they no longer care.-

so close yet so far apart

بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

Face to face and heart to heart
We're so close yet so far apart
I close my eyes I look away
That's just because I'm not okay
But I hold on, I stay strong
Wondering if we still belong

Will we ever say the words we're feeling
Reach down underneath and tear down all the walls
Will we ever have our happy ending?
Or will we forever only be pretending?
Will we always, always, always be pretending

Keeping secrets safe
Every move we make
Seems like no ones letting go
And it's such a shame
Cause if you feel the same
How am I supposed to know?

one step closer?

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

when the wound heals, the mind ripens.

so the heart can't express?

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

dear butterfly, 
butterfly fly away please.
when the right time comes.

so let go. 
If your heart is with Allah, nobody could break it.

Because Allah always listens. 

Give your wish to Him, and then forget. 
And know that He does not forget.

tears are words the heart can't express.

the quest offshore!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

a couple weeks back. 
3 months as it was.
45 minutes from the clinic.
30 minutes from this bridge.
this 750 meters bridge. 

Behold, Pamaguan!

this is where it all begins.
there, they're waiting.

the journey begun there and then.
the sun shines brightly, the wind blew softly drifting the memories way away.
let the love flows baby~

3 hours on the road ( err.. road?) then off somewhere again.
visiting from house to house, greeting and meeting the villagers.
frankly, it was exhilarating being with them.
still is.

the excited looks of the children here waiting to be sent home after-school. 
all ready to go. home, of course!

now isn't this the sweetest goodbye?

indeed, absence do makes the heart grow fonder.

how messy a mess can be?

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

Everybody comes with a baggage,
we'll just have to find the ones who wants to help us unpack. 
I repeat, the ones who wants to help.

be kind!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

kindness is a mark of faith and whoever is not kind has no faith. 
(narrated by Muslim)

better to have a heart without words than words without a heart

February 24, 2013

no, nah nah!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

truth is, 
everybody is going to hurt you. 
you just have to find someone worth suffering for. 

the only time you are running out of chances is when you stop taking them. 

loud & clear!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

it's best to stay quiet.
the silence can speak volume without ever saying a word.

life is a balance of holding on and letting go.

maybe tomorrow?

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

Some hearts hear each other—even in silence. Sometimes what's separated in this life, is joined in the next.
Yasmin Mogahed

Marry someone who will make you fall in love with Allah every single day.

la isla bonita~

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

what can you do when your good isn't good enough?
and all that you touch tumbles down
my best intentions just keep making a mess of thing
i just wanna make it somehow.

so i throw up my fist
throw a punch in the air
and accept the truth 
that sometimes life isn't fair

i'll send out a wish
i'll send out a prayer
and finally someone will see 
how much i care

there's still beauty in the broken.

harry potter?

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

Getting married is difficult these days. No wonder a lot of people opt out for the easier alternative.

Dumbledore was right.

"Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy." (Dumbledore in "Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire")

there are times that what's right isn't always the easy one.

January 8, 2013

oh oh!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

get it?
never mind. 

The secret of happiness is to have good attitude AND bad memory.

road untraveled_

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

Weep not for roads untraveled 
Weep not for paths left alone 
Cause beyond every bend is a long blinding end 
It's the worst kind of pain I've known 

Give up your heart left broken. 
And let that mistake pass on 
Cause the love that you lost wasn't worth what it cost 
And in time you'll be glad it's gone. 

Weep not for roads untraveled 
Weep not for sights unseen 
May your love never end and if you need a friend, 
There's a seat here alongside me.

(Roads Untraveled, LP)

they don't know!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

let the world speak. 
they don't know much.
He knows better, you know that right?

That moment when the emotion is too intense that no words could express it, and all you could say is, "Allah."
Because only He knows.

"But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not."

[Al Baqarah: 216]

It is not the load that is bothering you, it's the way you are carrying it.

won't be easy!

-بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ ﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

If it's amazing, it won't be easy.
If it's easy, it won't be amazing.
If it's worth it, you won't give up.
If you give up, you're not worthy. 

Treat women the way you want your sister, mother, wife, and daughter to be treated. 
It's that simple.
