Look for this movie. Starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. Watch it. I found it inspiring.

Seriously, watch it, it'll be a 2 hour worth of your time. I promise.

Well, let me give you the gist. It's about the struggle of Nelson Mandela after he secured the No. 1 post in South Africa. It's about unifying South Africa.

Now, in our context, let's not go that far ie national level. Let's start with your own race. Yup, your very own race. Try to forgive and forget. After all, that's what Islam taught us.

Watch it ok.

Tak ujan pon

We went to a friend's wedding in Sungai Petani yesterday. Met some old friends from Labu. It was great. It's not easy to meet up nowadays since we all have our own lives to concentrate on. So a mini reunion like yesterday was a blessing.

A friend commented on Akif hairstyle:

Syed : Waa...ada style la rambut dia....
Aku : ehehh...style hujan beb
Syed : aahah...Noh Hujan!!!

Suddenly Akif responded.....

Akif : Tak ujan pon abah!!! - sambil tengok ke langit....

ehehehhh....Akif...Akif lain kali jangan menyampuk cakap orang tua

Only 32

Yup I'm 32 years old today. A couple of years ago, I freaked out about being in the 30s group. But today not anymore. Still feeling young and free :)

Anyways, having a birthday is meaningless without family and friends. And Alhamdulillah I'm blessed with both. So, to those who sent their wishes through FB, SMS and orally, I can only thank you. You guys made my day.

To my wife, thank you for the lovely Birthday Card :)

So now, for next year, I've decided not to make any resolution. I think new year's resolution is overrated :) The most important thing is to live your life to the fullest. But of course I'm hoping that faith, fate and luck will always be on my side. Whatever comes, I hope I could go through it with bravery and dignity.

See you guys. And thanks for all the wishes!!!!

American Pie

I've seen the latest American Pie : The Book of Love

I'd rate it as 'OK la'.

I still believe that the original American Pie is the best. I don't know why, but it seems that the recent versions of American Pie have lost its touch.

I missed the original casts. They were hilarious.

However, the latest American Pie is still acceptable. Thanks to the hotter and sexier chicks :)

Bagi can la

The truth hurts. Yup, it's true. Especially to those who are afraid of their own shadows. They would do anything to stop the truth from being told. Hence, the spin that the truth is actually an act of brainwashing.

Brainwash. It sounds scary huh? Especially if you are living a lie. Why? Because defending a lie is actually a struggle. So, the solution is ..... stop the lying.

If you want a person to stop the brainwash, you too must do the same. It has to be mutual.

Ok la, let me shoot straight to the point. Stop brainwashing our children. Stop training them to be racists and bigots. If you are one, fine, it's your decision. But let your children decide on their own.

Let our children and their generation decide what they want from each other. Stop planting the seed of racism in their minds. Let them learn the meaning of living together, to appreciate the unique existence of their friends.

Don't teach them about colors. Let them see their friends as one color no matter how brown, yellow or dark their skins are.

Friendship has to be laced with sincerity. With sincerity, respect will follow. Let them care and help each other.

Stop the selfish agenda of your community and embrace the agenda of the country. The truth is, this country has a lot to offer, enough for everyone to share. Whether we like it or not, everyone is here to stay. If you can't accept that. Please...by all means find another country that suits your needs.

Do not question the formula we've been practicing for the past 5 decades. It works. There's no need to downgrade or upgrade it. Our formula is unique. It suits us just right. So please..... appreciate it. Give our children a chance. Give this country a chance.....

p/s : sori la....this entry is quite berterabur...:P

The Elusive Gold Medal

Can't wait for the final match tomorrow. Malaysia vs Vietnam. Hope we'll triumph over them.

I think everyone knows that Vietnam is a good team. They did beat us in the group match. But anything is possible right?

As a fan, I do understand that winning and losing is part of the game. But the players too must understand that the fans demand nothing less than an impressive display. We want to see our team to play beautiful and smart football. If we win, it's a bonus, a job well done. If we lose, I reckon the fans will understand.

Moreover, the fans' expectation do not stop here. We want to see the team be elevated to a higher level. World cup would be too far fetched, so take it slow. The Asian Cup for example. Our participation is long overdue. It's a good chance for football to draw the fans back to our empty stadiums.

Don't give us hope. We've had hope inside of us for a very long time. And believe or not, despite the glamor of EPL, we still long for a formidable Malaysian football team. Deep inside our hearts, we want it to happen. So make it happen you guys.

For tomorrow's game, I'd say it's a 50-50 chance. But the voice inside of me is saying that we might be celebrating tomorrow. MIGHT. Hope we will.

I can't wait to see the Jalur Gemilang being hoisted. I can't wait to hear the Negaraku being played in the background. Mannn......that would be so emotionally awesome. And when that time comes, I'd sure be standing up and sing along in my own living room. Hope I wont cry :)

So all the best you guys!! Make us proud ya!

BTN@Balik Pulau

Amid the hot controversy regarding BTN, I just got back from one.

From 3rd to 7th of December I was in Balik Pulau attending BTN course for Master/PhD & Sub-Specialist for oversea candidates. It was awesome. Seriously.

This would be my 3rd BTN and 4th of such course. This one was different from the ones I attended before. It was full of information and fun too. I don't know, maybe because I'm more matured (MATURED ok not old) now then I was before. So, I could really appreciate the information fed to me and my friends.

Some say that the government uses BTN to brainwash our hearts and minds. But in reality, the ideology that we have today, is a result of us being brainwashed from the day we were born. We were brainwashed by the environment, people and gossips around us.

We always use our emotion rather than our brain to interpret anything. Why? We simply do not have the knowledge. We are too dependent on third parties whose credibility could be questioned. So, BTN provides these knowledge. It's up to us whether to use it or not.

I felt that the course had taught me of who I am and my purpose in this country. Sometimes, we are proud of what we have contributed to this country, but in reality, there are a lot more for us to do. This country needs us. We just cannot take her for granted.

Remember, we took her for granted once; and we paid it with 446 years of colonization. Now, we are given a second chance. If we still screw this up, we might lose her forever.

I'm proud that my friends from the other races too acknowledge the benefit they get from BTN. They say that now their views about this country and the constitution are much more clearer. They are now more patriotic than ever.

I've said this before, and I'd say it again. I love this country. This is my Tanah Air. This is my Tanah Pusaka. This country is my 'warisan' and the 'warisan' of my children. OUR children. Don't make them pay for our mistakes. I was born here and I hope to die here. I would defend her with all my life and soul.

In my way of course....
