Mehnah Kepada Mawaddah dan Rahmah
Seperkara yang harus disedari oleh para suami, talak dan poligami bukannya HAK milik mereka, tetapi TANGGUNGJAWAB untuk ia diuruskan sebaik mungkin.
Tatkala seorang suami berkenalan dengan cinta kedua, isteri yang sedia ada sering kelihatan buruk celanya. Serba serbi tidak kena. Cinta kedua itulah ‘penemuan sejati’ yang terlewat tapi belum terlambat.
Suami terlupa bahawa hubungannya dengan isteri pertama banyak dibelenggu oleh tekanan dan bebanan. Ia datang dari tanggungjawab yang sudah terpikul di atas bahu mereka berdua. Anak-anak, harta benda, kewangan dan pelbagai lagi. Semua itu menjadi sumber tekanan, dan mustahil hubungan nampak indah dalam keadaan masing-masing tertekan dan terbeban.
Akan tetapi segalanya nampak indah pada cinta kedua, kerana di situlah ditemui ketenangan.
Baikkah perempuan yang mengambil peluang dari mehnah yang sedang membelenggu suami dan isteri itu?
Perbuatan menzalimi perempuan, apatah lagi dengan alasan-alasan agama, inilah modal yang digunakan oleh musuh-musuh Islam untuk menyabitkan penindasan Islam ke atas wanita. Perempuan sering tersepit di jalan mati, ketika lelaki bersenang lenang dengan pelbagai pilihan di tangannya yang didenifiniskan sebagai HAK, bukan lagi AMANAH dan TANGGUNGJAWAB.
Mungkin jenayah terbesar di sebalik krisis-krisis ini ialah pemahaman-pemahaman yang salah terhadap hak dan peranan dalam rumahtangga, hingga penindasan, penganiayaan dan penderaan fizikal atau emosi anggota keluarga, merebak tanpa jelas kelihatan penyelesaiannya. Hingga suami tanpa sedar menjadi male chauvinist yang dicela Tuhan.
MAWADDAH DAN RAHMAH
Mawaddah itu adalah cinta yang terhasil, kesan dari usaha menyemainya di dalam jiwa antara suami dan isteri. Mawaddah hanya ada antara suami dan isteri, sebagai cinta yang diperjuangkan dalam sebuah rumahtangga. Segala susah payah yang diharungi dengan jiwa memberi oleh suami dan isteri menyuburkan mawaddah ini…
Tidak mudah untuk saya ungkapkan hal ini. Ia lebih kepada usaha meredakan keresahan diri tatkala beberapa kes dengan plot dan jalan cerita yang sama, mendatangi kehidupan.

Mr. X and Miss X are friends. They tried dating but it did not last long since Miss X is not particularly interested in Mr. X despite his charming personality and his outstanding family background. She wanted more than that. She wanted love. However, they remained friends. Until present, Mr. X had been dating a beautiful woman with a kid (divorcee or widow I’m not sure), since. The thing is Mr. X’s mother and family disapproves their relationship especially of her status, reputation and culture differences. Mr. X’s parents is in need to get their son back as it seems that Mr. X’s girlfriend has a great negative effect in his life – I’m not sure voodoo or no voodoo, I’m no judge.
Due to these desperate measures, Mr. X’s mother and sister had been searching for ways to ‘help’ their beloved Mr. X. They have tried spoiling him with riches, offering him anything he wants and even consulted religious people for help. The last resort was to wed him with a young woman, not of his choice and definitely not Mr. X’s girlfriend.
Recently, Mr. X’s sister found great news when she heard that Miss X and Mr. X were friends. She thought it would be a perfect idea to tell their mother to wed Mr. and Miss X, instantaneously. Unfortunately, Miss X has a serious relationship and she would not possibly sacrifice her love and feeling for the riches and all materials he could provide.
Should Miss X sacrifice her love?
Should she choose to help her friend over her love?
Should she put other’s interest over hers?

Believe it or not, i'm not a High School Musical or HSM in short junkie but yesterday i had to. I don't regret a single bit nor am i making a fuss out of it since its mostly for young people or teens and definitely not me (not to say i'm old) but i love musicals a lot, so why not? I ended up having so much fun watching HSM, and seriously i felt 5 years younger or maybe 10. Erk! Well it does not mean when you reach some certain age you have to ban all the songs, bands or movies you love to love when you were a kid right?
I used to dance to any video clips available. BSB , N Sync, Spice Girls, you name it! We'll (me, sister and cousin) have the video tape (then!) and pause and rewind and forward until it gets so jammed. It's so much fun and i don't need to go for gym or aerobics cos its definitely a workout. Don't you guys do it? If yes, you know what i mean if not, you guys really missed childhood when the pop music was such a hit! When everyone loves Nick Carter and JC Chasez for their babyface cute looks, i chose AJ and Justin Timberlake, just cos they're different.
Ok back to HSM, throughout the movie i really wished that i am Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) or Sharpay (Ashlyey Tisdale) or just any of the extra dancers available. It was so much fun. Plus among all the stick-thin pretty girls, there was this chubby cheerleader who danced so well. She was so good! Usually to relate HSM we'll definitely talk about tthe famous couple, Zac and Vanessa but what we had overlooked is Ryan and Kelsi, the cute quirky choreographer and musician item. I thought they were so cute and talented even without the spotlight on them. I'm not ignoring the fact that Ms Hudgens and Mr Efron were underestimated by me,but they really worked hard to pull each scene together!
So i'm urging you guys to re-discover the kid in you and watch High School Musical 3. If you're to shy, get a copy of the DVD and watch it alone, (You can definitely skip the cute corny part, if you want to) You'll totally agree with me :)

It happened last week when I was in Johor Bahru for work. The normal water sampling yada yada. We started early; everyone was in the mood for work. We laughed our hearts out throughout the journey from Kualiti Ceria’s office to Tanjung Pelepas (about 30minutes drive). Upon arrival, we had breakfast and swallowed a little bitter pill to avoid water sickness (is that what you call it?) Whatever it is, I don’t want to throw up doing my thing on boat, and I know it’s definitely not fun being sick. So I had to take the medicine every time I go on boat even though it makes you sleepy the first 30minutes. [Note: Please get the medicine if you plan on taking the boat, ferry or such]
So after a while of boat-riding, we arrived at the spot (advised by Mr. GPS as we need an exact reading of the location) so we started to throw the Ekman grab for the sediment sample. When the boys pulled it up, they noticed that there’s a malfunction. To say the least, the next hour was spent repairing it on boat, the nomad way. Such chaos! “Tu la, sape suruh gelak je dari tadi, kan dah kena!” is all I can think of.
To make it more dramatic, when the apparatus was ready to do its job, Roro started doing the Phytoplankton and Zooplankton sampling. Another tragedy happened when the net was stucked to the boat’s fan. The boatmen even wanted to dive and get it out, but by the time he was in his diving costume, and got the torn net and there’s nothing left to dive for.
Due to the drama that was happening, everyone was exhausted, moody and I was easily agitated. I sat outside the boat, alone, while he smoked his way out of depression. He was stressed about the net and could not get it out of him since he was responsible for it but Edros said that things were to happen and nothing can be done but to get a new one. So I was okay with it as the net wont cost more than 10 grants would it?
So since both of us were not in the mood, me, being super-agitated with his stress-ness tried to make him relax but turned out fighting and screaming our hearts out (I’m definitely exaggerating), we got into a fight with no reasons at all. Then as we were heading back towards the jetty, the next 20minutes was pure silent between the two of us until I saw a swordfish, in and out of the water.
I was amazed and excited that I wanted to shake him and ask him to look what I saw and since we were ‘not’ talking, I didn’t. I kept it to myself. But Cintahati, quickly turned to me and said “Did you see that? I turned back just to make sure the swordfish was not there to stab me”. I laughed. I thought it was funny that he was being dramatic. But I recalled that there’s this old folk story made to a black-and-white movie “Singapura dilanggar Todak” where the villagers were stabbed by the swordfish. But luckily these Swordfishes are civilized now as Swordfish saves the day!

I’m sorry if I sound without manners. Its not that I don’t have respects for them, but they don’t respect themselves, how could they respect others? They drove so slowly yet on the most right lane. You see what I mean? I was definitely ticked off early morning especially after an episode with my newly-bought Topshop, i wore it once, top which had some color run stains and now had ended up with spots of yellow after some “intimate” moments with Mr. Clorox. Seriously, I’m pissed! Its not cheap, its freaking 100 bucks. Sigh.

Today, my dear beloved friend Nur Nadira Nadzeri better know as Nad celebrates her 24th birthday at some Petronas training centre. Due to sympathy (not!), i've compiled a few clips for her, birtday songs mainly, as i'm not able to do a videoclip like ET did which i thought was brilliant! But, Nadlove, if you're reading this, you have to turn on all the clips and you'll know why?! Everything resembles you. Haha!
This one's from Mariah Carey since i remembered those days when we sang her songs together :) but she sings the birthday song for Muhammad Ali, but what the heck!
Then this one is by Beyonce at her concert, somewhere, singing for a 15 year old girl in pink. You're not 15 and you're definitely not wearing pink now, i think!
The orang utan looked so cute singing the Birthday song so i didnt want to leave him behind. Chomel kan? No he definitely doesn't look like you un less you feel like there's resemblances-lah. Don;t be mad ok cos you need to play the last clip.
There you go, a nice birthday song for you. How do you like it? Hehe, Nad we've got a date this 29th November, no more excuses ok!

Sad thing was, i had to buy in Singapore since Kiehl's have not reached our shores,then, and i thought of not getting it since it'll be a hassle if i finish the bottle and need replacements and what not. Then after less than 3 months of 'thinking', it was already in KL, so i excitedly visited Kiehl's at Pavillion and, my, was i happy to get my facial care there. I had the Yerba Mate range (facial cleanser, the toner and moisturizer) and also the Ultra Protection Water-Based Sunscreen SPF 25. It was not as expensive as the others i've tried, and i thought it was reasonable enough to pay MYR350 per set (Yerba Mate cleanser at MYR85, toner at MYR110 and moisturizer at MYR50).
The herbal Yerba Mate products, is suitable for all skin types. Formulated with an extract derived from Yerba Maté, an extraordinary South American herb, to help maintain a healthy-looking, youthful vivacity. Enriched with this uncommon herbal tea extract, our lightweight, foaming cleanser gently, yet effectively removes excess oil and residue to help reveal skin's natural radiance.
The Yerba Mate sounds fun to me and the moisturizer and sunscreen is not sticky like some others i've tried. So two thumbs up for Kiehl's. During purchases, Kiehl's will offer you 3 random samples for you to tryout other products, which i thought was a golden idea for me to test out more of their products. How cool is that?
Then again, till today, their 'golden' idea, had made me a Kiehl's collector. Every visit to KL i would definitely visit Kiehl not because their product doesn't last long, they do (my Yerba Mate facial cleanser had lasted for the past 9 months) but i just had to get other products, to buy something new or re-stocking. I was interested in most of the products but i can't be too greedy, can i?
After the Yerba Mate range, i slowly collected one product at a time and last 2 weeks when i had the Water Quality Workshop at Marriot Putrajaya, we stopped for Pavilion, but this time Kak M and Roslee was there too, and like any other time, i'll definitely stop by my face's fave shop, Kiehls. This time, I got myself the Brightening Botanical collection; the Spot treatment, cleanser as well as the moisturizer. So that makes me Kiehl's crazy.
Then again, last Friday when we stopped by Pavilion from JB, Elly wanted to get her own Kiehl's range, perhaps after envying my less-blemished skin, she finally got her facial care, the Blue Herbal Treatment for blemish-prone skins. The whole set costs only at RM425 inclusive of the cleanser, toner, moisturizer, spot treatment and sunscreen. And i'm definitely sure its worth buying since it'll last more than 6 months (usually more). That means MYR71 per month, MYR2.37 per day and MYR1.18 per use. How good is that? So the next Kiehl's visit, i'm definitely getting Cintahati that!
In the future i'll definitely try more of their products, perhaps all of it since i've tried most of the samples which works like a magic wand. I'm sorry i can't specify 1 particular item that i love as each product i have, i will never leave it behind. To those of you whose a Kiehl's-user, i know u're with me and those who wants to try, get the mini-bottles and try, u'll know what i mean. If u get the facial care, please do not leave he spot treatments and sunscreen behind!
