Im in the office.
In Accra, Ghana.
A new one from my last visit here.
Well one level higher from my last office.
Im here for my second trip. The walkthrough phase after the first cut-over.
Im scheduled (well, at least i was in the planned schedule) to give presentation and training of the developed system next week.
But now im not sure if i’ll be able to pull anything off. So Elvin might just have to present this alone.
Gyahahahaha. So (i hope) i’m here just for preparation and finish testing all the test cases.
That’ll be just….. super.
Its Tuesday noon in Accra, we arrived here Sunday noon.
I havent been able to shake off this jet lag.
Its 10pm now in Malaysia.
We just finished our lunch in the office.
the room is very small.
Well, it is a meeting room.
And my colleagues of 12 people and I have to share this meeting room meant to cater 10 person.
And the air conditioner is busted.
Demmit. Its freaking hot and humid and it sucks.
I hope i can be back in Malaysia soon. But alas, that would not be the case for me.
Because i’ll be spending the next 25 days here.
Gile is what it is. Its the 3rd day. 8 oclock in the evening. Im sitting here in front of the tv. Watching Rush Hour. In my room that im sharing with my Team Leader, a chinese, in a hotel apartment called Roots in the middle of Accra. In Ghana.

sile bace nih. tengok youtube yang dia post pun ok. sebelum terus baca my post please.
maaf.. kalau saya salah.
tapi aku pun ade pandangan aku sendiri tentang mahathir.
bahawa ape yg mahathir sebut dalam akhbar tu sebenarnye adelah ‘betul’..
Allah tak suruh kita mengagungkan Rasulullah SAW. malah mana2 Rasul pun..
Allah suruh kita agungkan Dia sahaja. dan ikuti Rasulullah. kerana mengikuti Rasulullah itu Sunnah. dapat pahala free kalau ikut. sekadar mengikuti.
aku teringat kisah yg aku baca tentang kejadian selepas kewafatan Nabi SAW. bila Nabi SAW wafat dan Abu Bakar As-Siddiq datang mengkomfirmkan kewafatan baginda, Abu Bakar keluar dari masjid dan terus berkata kepada semua yg datang, (lebih kurang macam nih lah bunyi nye) “kepada mereka yg mengagungkan Muhammad, ketahuilah Muhammad telah mati dan kepada mereka yang mengagungkan Allah, Allah itu tidak mati dan tidak akan mati”
(The Biography of Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq a.s. by Dr. ‘Ali Muhammad Muhammad As-Sallaabee, Translated by Faisal Shafeeq)
so aku nak tanye, adekah Abu Bakar itu menghina Rasulullah? of course lah statement Abu Bakar tu menyuruh umat Islam berhenti mengagungkan Rasulullah. adekah itu dikira menghina Rasulullah?
Rasulullah sendiri tau dia seorang manusia biasa. seorang hamba Allah. cume baginda dipilih sebagai Rasulullah, dari kalangan manusia biasa. dari kalangan Bani Quraisy pulak lagi..
ye. to me mahathir cakap betul, kita sepatutnye bersyukur kepada Allah, dan bukan kepada Rasul-NYA…
By Allah, aku sikit pun tak suka kan mahathir. banyak kesalahan beliau telah lakukan.. tapi bile dia bercakap tentang kebenaran. aku menyokong kebenaran itu..
masalahnye mahathir ni.. dia sendiri lupa statement dia. dia sruh orang Malaysia bersyukur kat UMNO. bodo la tu.. ko tolong la aku banyak mane pun. dah mmg kerja kerajaan untuk berkhidmat utk rakyat.. syukur aku tetap kepada Allah. ko buat salah. salah tetap salah. apehal nak agungkan UMNO kalau dah banyak buat salah? nak bersyukur ape kat UMNO?
its like this.. example of a vending machine…
u put money into a vending machine. u push a button of your desired items. u get the desired items. and you THANK THE CREATOR OF THE VENDING MACHINE for creating an awesome machine.
same la ngn politik.
u pay taxes. u vote for your desired government. u get your desired government. and you THANK GOD for creating and giving humans knowledge to create governments. DUUUHHHH!!!!!
YOU DONT THANK THE GOVERNMENT.. OR THE BUTTONS.. ITS THEIR JOB TO FUNCTION AS WHAT THE CREATOR HAD SET THEM TO DO. the button’s job is to select and claim our items. the government’s job is to help rakyats get better life.
I like exploring Google Maps. and if you ever explore the Earth map, you’ll notice that there are “melted overflows”(as i say it.. haha.. dont know the term for it) region, geographical view on Asian continent. namely in the China region. there are these regions that looks like they melted away from the Himalayan mountains.
i’ve watched National Geographic once about the creation of Earth. they said that Earth was formed after 2 planet collided. one of the planet split-ed into two. 1 part combined with the other planet, forming Earth. and the other part became the, now so called Moon.
and with that, my theory of the “melted overflow” region might have been because of this event. that the melted region was once the ‘Moon’ planet. also forming South East Asia. but there is another question, how te heck did it melt? why did it melt? why not just break apart?
below is the screenshot of what i’m trying to say. focus IN the red line (click to enlarge)
and recently i found a hadith (well actually i’ve heard of this 15 years ago) about the origin of Fire on Earth, i dont know if its hadith sohih or not. but you can read it here. (sorry its not in english tho)
Dari sebuah hadis ada diceritakan Allah SWT telah menghantar malaikat Jibrail bertemu malaikat Malik untuk mengambil api darinya bagi kegunaan Adam a.s untuk memasak. Malaikat Malik pun bertanya “Wahai Jibrail ! berapa banyakkah yang kamu mahu ? ” Sebesar buah tamar, jawab Jibrail. Kata Malik tahukah kamu, kalau aku berikan api neraka sebesar yang kamu mahu pasti akan hancur lebur tujuh petala langit dan bumi kerana kepanasan.”
Kalau begitu separuh buah tamar, kata Jibrail. Jawab Malik, “Kalau separuh darinya nescaya langit tidak dapat menurunkan hujan walaupun setitik kebumi dan segala tanaman akan musnah.” Malaikat Jibrail lalu memohon pertolongan dari Allah SWT untuk mengetahui jumlah yang betul. Allah SWT lalu berfirman, “Ambillah sebesar biji sawi.”. Pergilah Jibrail mendapatkan api itu kemudiannya api itu dibasuh dahulu dengan 70 buah sungai disyurga. Setelah itu ianya dibawa kepada Adam a.s dan diletakkan di atas puncak gunung yang tinggi. Tiba-tiba cairlah gunung dan tinggalah hanya sedikit maka api itulah yang digunakan hingga sekarang.
actually, the one i’ve read/heard before was that.. our fire today is just but a little spark that flew away from the melted mountain.
Jibril put the ‘washed’ Hell fire on top of the largest/highest mountain (maybe the ‘moon’ planet was sticking out of Earth too much, it looked like the highest mountain).. and so the mountain melted. and wallah.. Only the Himalayan mountain were left, South East Asia was formed. and just because Adam a.s. wanted some warmth or wanted to cook his meal.
explains why the Gobi desert is so dead. explains why the Middle East is so full of sand. explains even the map. does it not?
malas malas malas. tu la. malas solat lagi. last last sume mende aku malas. dah la keje melambak. itu pun malas. parah dah nih.

One thing i love about reading manga is because the authors or translators will in some way slip a little history of Japan or any other true stories. and that in some cases, those history may end up in movies.
and when i watch those movies, I feel proud of myself for knowing something that others might not know.. huhu.
something like the coming movie, 47 Ronin (click to watch trailer) scheduled to be in the cinema on the 24th December. There’s a reason why the movie were scheduled to come out at the end of the year. Because in TV Japan, they will air the movie about “Chushingura” at the end of every year. Chushingura is about 47 samurai warriors led by Ooishi Kuranosuke to avenge their disgraced lord during the Edo period.
this is an info of 47 Ronin in IMDB.. gues, what character will be played by Hiroyuki Sanada?
and its all because i read the manga “WAGATSUMA-SAN WA ORE NO YOME”.. lol. its a useless manga about a boy occasionally time traveled to his own future. lol. how can it be informative right?
when you watched Pirates of the Caribbean.. have you ever heard of the name BlackBeard before? well.. if u read the manga One Piece by Eichiro Oda, you’d knew that Edward D. Teach was BlackBeard. and that he is part of the Famous Pirates history.
I never knew that Chad is a name of a country.. until i read Bleach..
I read History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi.. and it mentioned a theory that the ancient martial art Kalari Payat may have been the true origin of Asian martial arts such as Kung Fu, Muay Thai and Silat.
kesimpulannye. aku bace manga. hahaa

masa Raya Haji lepas. aku pegi Maghribi. also known as Morocco nowadays. went there with my family and my dad’s friend’s family. Pak Cik Setu..
seminggu aku kat sana. bole tahan la, unik, different. the locals there master two languages, Arabic and French. not so many with English. so I had trouble communicating. but not my dad and his friend though. yeah. my dad can speak Arabic. awesome.
1 night in Casablanca where we visited the Hassan Sani (Hassan II) Mosque, 7th largest mosque in the world. By God, it’s big. and stroll along the Corniche
another night in Rabat where we visited PakCik Jamal, dua pupu kitorang yg jadi Malaysian Ambassador in Morocco. pleased to be served Malaysian food after 2 days of Tajine. bweh!.. lol. PakCik Jamal bawak kitorang jalan2 naik krete Diplomat.. visited a great Souk(a market place) in Rabat.
then 2 nights in Marrakesh. went there by train.. it was horribly hot in the train even when it was cold outside.. visit buncha places.. the famous Jemaa El Fna, and some monuments.. Spice market. We were supposed to celebrate our Raya Haji here. but i got sick and my family cant find the mosque for Solat Sunnah Aidil Adha. bad tip from a local. the mosque was closed.
then 2 more nights back in Casablanca where we spent the 2nd day in Morocco Mall and strolling along the Corniche again. then searched for coffee houses. not much fun when i was still sick when we got to Casablanca.
this is what i wanted to blog about. about me getting sick in Marrakesh. and my dad’s super power. lol. well. not super power. anyone can do it if they know what and how to do it. but yeah. it felt like my dad had this super power. lol.
The first day we arrived in Marrakesh. i slept in early that evening and woke up at 2am next morning. then something felt strange. something was playing with my bed. and it aint my brother that was sleeping on the bed next to me. so i decided to enchant the Kursi 3-4 times. and pppooofff! the bed stopped moving around. Alhamdulillah. and that’s when this ill feeling came to me. i stayed up all night with a heavy headache and heavy gasses in my gut.. lol. i burped non-stop, my stomach growled and i farted that night. my joints were aching like crazy. i cant move without these misrable feelings of pain. when Subuh came.. I felt it getting worse. my family left me in my room and went out for Solat Sunnah Aidiladha (in which they didnt had the chance actually.. lol). i stayed in bed until the time to check-out of the hotel.
after checking out, we were waiting for our taxi. that’s when i told my dad what happened last night. so Ayah told me “to give it to him”.. yes, i’ve heard of this from my mom. ayah did this sometimes when my mom got sick. mom said the illness went away, but because Ayah pulled it into him. so Ayah contracted the illness to himself.
so Ayah said to me to come and hug him. we hugged and he was mumbling the whole time (later i asked him about it and he said dia baca ayat Kursi).. by Allah. when Ayah said “Now! give it to me”, i felt something was trying to get out of me. i felt it. my headache was lightened. but somehow i realized I cannot give this illness to Ayah.. and i thought hard “Do not go! do not Go!.. no way u’re going into Ayah” and we released each other. By Allah, i would not burden my father anymore than i already had. but i knew Ayah pulled some from me.. because my headache was gone when we un-hug.
how’s that for an experience? that’s the first time i felt it. but now i know why Ayah would hug me when i fell sick when i was little..
so now i know, u may get sick just from walking too far behind your family. u may also get sick when coming back from office or school or even class. not because of viruses or bacteria. but from djins following/tormenting you when u dont even know it. it is not necessarily because of sihir. not necessarily because of someone feeling hasad (dengki) to us. but we live in the same world with them. and they may want to tease us. and always remember. “sebaik-baik jin itu adalah sejahat-jahat manusia” literally means, the worse of humankind is the softest of the djins. meaning, no matter how bad you are as a human, it is merely, the least of badness for the djins (makes you wonder how really bad can they be?). may Allah guide us. and may we prevail in His test. and makes we wonder the power of Kursi. baca dan paham isi kandungannye.
i repeated Kursi for the whole day and never fell sick again that day. Alhamdulillah.
