Just Be Kind

Lately I have been wondering what happened to the world today. Violence and taking matter into our hands have become the things people do in the name of justice.

It really bother me a lot when the things that we fight for are more for personal agenda and not for Islam or for Allah. I feel so sick with the news and my Facebook feed with all the news about bullies, terrorist attacks, bombing and many other violence things people do to each other. Besides the physical abuse we also participate in verbal or written abuse. Leaving hate comments on things or people that we don't like for the sake of saying something. If we don't have any good thing to say about somebody it's better not to say anything at all. The art of giving advice has lost on us. We want to right the wrong but we forgot to be nice. 

What happened to just being kind? Is it something that we have unlearned or is it something that we never really learn? Hemmmmm 

We seems to forget how Allah teaches the people before us about slaves. The way Allah band slaves from the society was not by killing all the people that owned slaves at once but by adding "free a slave" as one of the thing that we can do to pay for our sins. Over time there are no more slaves to free. Now we have become a society without slaves. There are many beautiful examples like this in Islam, we just have to look at our Prophet Muhammad. How kind he was to others who wrong him, how kind he was to his children and grandchildren. 

It's something to think about, to think hard and to implement in our daily lives. Just be kind. If Allah can be kind to us than why can't we?

Ramadandaily // Day 07

Day 7 //Ramadandaily
day 153/365

Day 153-365

It's day 7 and it's Friday. Even though fasting I am still doing everything that I can to keep moving and stay active. I am not going to push myself like crazy but I will not be lazy and stay stationary all day long. It is still very important to take care of your health and be fit especially during fasting month. I am trying to watch what I eat during iftar so that I will not feel tired for night time routine during Ramadan.

  • It's Ramadan month is Islamic calendar and Muslims all over the world is fasting
  • My birthday this month
  • School holidays
  • I am doing another round of 21 day fix extreme this month. This time around it's a little bit harder. Maybe because I have not doing this workout in a long time
  • Looking forward to WWDC 2017. I can't wait what kind of new technology they will reveal at the event
  • I am looking at the varieties of apple watch band at Lazada. I am obsess with the apple watch band this month
  • I am obsess with Amos Decker series. I am currently reading The Last Mile the second book of the series.

Day 152-365

One of the best way to beat the sleepiness in the afternoon is to do some coloring. What better way to do them other than on your ipad pro + apple pencil with Pigment app. I just love coloring and this way I can color to my heart content without making any mess.

Ramadandaily // Day 5

Day 5 //Ramadandaily
day 151/365

day 151-365

I am still working outside of the office today. It is always good to be in a different environment and focus on one particular project. A lot can be done and solve when you are not too restricted in a box and punch card. Nobody work like that anymore. We are in information age and we are information worker. We need to be in an environment that support the way we work now.
Even though it's the month of Ramadan and we are fasting that does not stop us from doing our job. In fact it makes us more productive because we don't have to worry about eating lunch or morning/evening tea break session. Food is not the only way we can socialise and communicate.

Ramadandaily // Day 4

Day 4 //Ramadandaily
day 150/365

Day 150-365

I have a user requirement workshop outside of the office today, so I did not have to beat the morning traffic to punch in. I do believe that going to work without have to worry about punching in on time can really help reduce the stress. We are already in the data economy era and we are still follow the traditional economy rules. It's about time we stop focusing on the time we arrived at work and focus more on productivity and outcome.

Day 3 //Ramadandaily
day 149/365

Day 149-364

I am blessed to be alive for the third day of Ramadan and healthy enough for fasting. It's a beautiful morning, the birds are chirping, it's not raining and the traffics are so smooth that it only took me about twenty minutes to get to work. I wish that every day is like this. 

I just love the sight of my office building from this angle. I have been working here for me than ten years and this is still one of the beautiful building, one of a kind and there's nothing like it. Alhamdulillah.

Ramadandaily // Day 2

Day2 // Ramadandaily 
Day 148/365

 Day 148-365

Second day of fasting and I am already in the mood for spring cleaning. After suboh I was so full of energy that I can't stop cleaning my closet. I am determine to make room for new clothes. I have not done any "raya shopping" a.k.a looking for new outfit. I am determine to loose a few kilos during this fasting month before I buy any new clothes. I hope this will be the motivation that I need to keep my weight within the healthy range.

Today I decided to cook for iftar. So we went to Giant Hypermarket to buy a few ingredients needed for the dish. My to do lists was less than 10 items and yet the price for all of them were almost RM200. So expensive and that was at Giant the place where the price should be at the lowest. The things that makes you go hemmm....
