My Personal Goals

I have been working on my goals recently.. To make sure that I will always be in the correct direction in my life.. Hidup nowadays banyak sangat tempation untuk jadi lazy lazy lazy.. Sedangkan, '"Demi masa. Sesungguhnya manusia dalam kerugian. Melainkan yang beriman dan beramal soleh. Dan orang yang berpesan-pesan kepada kebenaran, begitu juga yang berpesan-pesan kepada kesabaran". Surah-Al Asr'..

Semoga all of us tak satu geng dalam golongan manusia2 yang rugi..

Kenapa kena ade goals?

1. Sebab manusia ni pelupa dan cepat lalai
Baru semalam semangat membara-bara nak buat itu ini, nak berubah, nak jadi orang lebih berjaya tapi lepas few days dah terlupa and kembali leka.. This one tak boleh nak buat apa, because ini fitrah manusia.. Tapi dengan setting goals, at least bila terlalai tu, kita boleh refer balik to our goals and ingat2kan diri sendiri balik.. Get right back on the track.

2. Sebab keliling kita banyak Gundusamy
Teringat lagi masa pergi training baru2 ni, one of the Indian leader said, all the negative people around us dorang panggil as 'Gundusamy'.. Suke sangat bagi negative vibration.. So untuk avoid sume2 ni, baikla kita ada goal sendiri, believe in ourselves, stick to our goals and focus on it.

Cuba ingat balik time2 rase down atau tak happy.. Some of the reasons might be sebab :

a) takde goal dalam hidup,

b) were aiming for a goal we didn't really want,

or c) you were not moving forward to reach your goal.

Here goes my very own personal goals just to share with you guys..

What am I up to..

Few updates from me and my life..I am taking up TOEFL, GRE and ACT Personal Trainer Certification by end of this year 2011.. My way is to squeeze in this three into my daily routine.. A short and comprehensive study of 30minutes per day might just be enough.. i am still looking for a business opportunity that I can develop as a long term business project.. For now, priority goes to my Masters degree plus juggling the work as a research assistant in my former university.. 

I recently figured few things about what I would do in the future.. Will share with you guys in my next post.. 
Hmm.. for now let me share with one of the most remarkable productivity tool I ever encountered to date.. The great thing is that, this GTD(getting things done) tool is so efficient it makes me addicted to it! If you guys are interested to know further, check out :

See you guys in a while, i promise.

I'm Eating Clean.

What is eating clean anyway?? Alrighty. Read on..

There is no fitness goal which you can achieve without first cleaning up your diet.  Changing your diet is one of the biggest challenges when faced with improving ones health.  A majority of people are used to eating highly processed foods on a regular basis and breaking away from that can be difficult.  The good news is, it isn't impossible and once you make it a habit to eat clean, it becomes a part of your life.

In a nutshell, eating clean is the practice of eating whole, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates. It also means staying away from the junk that typically makes up the Standard American Diet (S.A.D) These types of food include man-made sugar, bad fats (hydrogenated, trans-fat), preservatives, white bread, and any other ingredients that are unnecessary. An easy way to remember if a food is clean is: "if man made it, don't eat it."

A person that eats clean generally practices the following:

  • Eliminates refined sugar
  • Cooks healthy meals
  • Packs healthy meals
  • Makes healthy choices when dining out
  • Drinks a lot of water
  • Eats 5-6 small meals per day
  • Always eats breakfast
  • Eating clean can be a major transition for a majority of people due to addictions to sugar, white bread, and fast food. It takes discipline in order to make eating clean a habit but it is possible and has so many long-term health benefits.

I will be compiling several recipes for me to follow.. The best thing about eating clean is that, you should eat more greens and thats what I love the most!! I shouldn't be hard for me because I like veges, so all I need now is solid discipline..

One way to feel good

Ehem. Takmo cakap omputih la kali ni.. Just nak share ape yang jadi masa berhenti kat R&R Tapah baru-baru ni.. singgah dengan niat nak solat Isyak, so sampai sampai jer terus menuju ke surau perempuan.. Fuhh.. Punyela ramai makcik2, akak2 and adik2 seislam nak mengadap yang Maha Esa.. walaupun terpaksa bersesak-sesak, tapi rase excited sebab ramai yang datang solat.. Kadang-kadang kalau masuk surau and tengok lengang jer, mmg rase sedikit tak best.. Time-time gini mmg ramai yg tengah berebut telekung.. Lucky me, bawak telekung sendiri.. Lepas habis solat, tengah lipat2 telekung ade cik adik datang tanye,

"Ni telekung surau ke? Nak boleh?"
maka dengan selambanya aku jawab..
"eh, tak.. ni akak bawa sendiri, sori ye"
dengan muke kachiwa, adik tu pun beralih kat sorang akak depan aku and tanye soalan yg sama..
"Ni telekung akak ke?"
akak tu pun dengan selambanye jugak menjawab..
"A'ah telekung akak, nah amikla guna. Dah guna nanti tinggal je kat sini.. akak wakaf jela.. kat sini cam kurang telekung jer"

Cube teka ape perasaan aku? Adeh rase cam kene tampar kuat2.. Malunye kat Allah, malunye kat diri sendiri, malunye kat Rasullulah saw.. Tercengang sambil maki hamun diri sendirik.. Tak gune betol aku ni, bagi jela.. orang tu kan musafir cam kau jugak, bukan jadik miskin pun kalo ko bagi die gune.. Klu tak nak tunggu die, tinggal jela telekung tu kat situ.. tak belajar agame ke ape, sedekah tu kan pahale  berpanjangan.. raser nak sekeh diri sendiri laju2 kat situ jugak.. Seminit lepas tu, adek girl lain datang tanye, dengan tanpe berfikir sesaat terus reflex impulse aku bagi die telekung pink ak yang dah siap berlipat tu.. and larik laju2 dari surau tu dengan rase puas and lega.. 

So pengajarannya, kawan2.. jom kite memperbanyakkan telekung kat surau2.. masuk surau time takde orang, pandang kiri kanan, letak telekung kat rak, pastu larik.. sedekah ni feel die lagi best bila org tak tau.. tp takyahla setiap kali pergi surau sedekah telekung.. kang pape kedane pulak ekau.. Okbai.

Revamping My Life

I think I really need to revamp my life in total. I am not happy with my current situation. Especially financially. I just came back from a 5 day vacation in South Korea. It was fun and all, but still, lack of cash in hand, restrict many activities I've been hoping to do there. Yes, of course, that includes shopping.. :( 

I am demanding an income of minimum 10k and above, but I am not happy with myself. I feel I did not work hard enough. Yes, WORK HARD is the word. Hell to the phrase, "work smart not work hard".. Albert Einstein himself work hard enough before he managed to carve his name as world genius. I feel terribly sorry to my family, especially my dad and my dear baby. They both work like crazy night and day. But their capability is of course limited with this enormous family with millions of liabilities.

In Korea, while wandering around Myeongdong street in the freezing weather, I thought to myself, how much of this life we would lose only because the lack of cash. Because the life has so much to offer. I am living in Malaysia, and what about the rest of the world that I haven't stepped my feet on? Don't I want to see and experience them all? We don't deserve this. We are given the chance to live this life for once (well unless if you believe in reincarnation..) so we gotta live the life to the fullest. Spend time with our parents in the best resort the world could probably offer, spend more time with our kids at their favorite theme parks, buy our loved ones gifts that will bring tears to their eyes.. And the only thing that separate us from these beautiful dreams is MONEY

In front of Anyang Station, Gyeonggi-do, Seoul, South Korea
*Debut picture of me in this blog =) *
I am very glad to be born a Muslim. I very am and I thank God for this greatest gift. But I don't think I will be able to present myself a successful Muslim if I am incapable of helping those in need especially my family. I don't think I will be a good Muslim if I did not work hard enough. These days I feel so hopeless and feel I am back again to the lowest point of my life.. BUT!!!! I PROMISE you my love, every single soul in my family and every one on earth that I will emerge as somebody everyone can depend on. Ameen

i love airports!

Delayed for another hour. Something should be done regarding this Mr. Fernandes.. Aishh.. For me, this is my first experience using this airline.. Was a loyal customer of Malaysian Airlines for years.. It's a good thing when u have a cheaper option when your financial aint so good. But hey, we understand that it's a low cost, no frills airline, but it is just illogical to directly link that to a 'not so punctual' airline kan. So yeah, just another rant from another customer who needs to reach her destination on time.

Dad dropped me at the aiport this morning and I insist him not to wait for me because I know he has lots of things to do.To my despair, the earliest flight available to KL is at 2.55pm.. So I have to wait for four hours and now a sweet additional one hour because of d delay.. It supposed to be really boring but once I entered the boarding area, I said to myself 'hey, I do love this place!' Ladies loitering around the shops, kids dragging around their tiny luggage, men checking out the planes..I just enjoy the view.. Lets check out some pictures I managed to snap throughout the way..

Snapped from the in-flight magazine.. Thought that
this might come in handy if I ever to visit Paris.. :)

On this new year, I am going to be 25 years young.. The biggest thing that I will work the most on is me being a perfectionist.. I know being one will absolutely carry me nowhere.. Some reasons why i should stop being a perfectionist..a) It makes people unhappy since it’s impossible to achieve perfection or be perfect. b) It causes procrastination because striving for the unattainable makes it hard to get started. c) It creates self criticism and low self esteem because perfectionists are never happy with what they’ve done.
