Event with Orphanages: Attitude of Gratitude

Of all the "attitudes" we can acquire, surely the attitude of gratitude is the most important and by far the most life-challenging.
(Breaking Through To The Next Level, by Zig Ziglar)

Alhamdulillah, the planning for this event went well. Yes, definitely there are lots of rooms for improvement. But, thank you very much and congratulation for KSIT team; En Nasa, Kak Yus, Sya, Nadia, Zaza + husband, Linda + partner, Munzir, and all children who are the special guests on that day. You all add up an important value in my understanding of what gratitude really means. I'll remember this special day all of my life. Good luck to you children for your bright and most promising future. May Allah be with you always. Amin.

1- 7th of Aug. (I/C's Birthdate)
2- 22nd of Sept. (BirthCert Birthdate)

CONFUSED? Me too. So, don't ask why. Hehe!

Anyhow, I dedicate my special thanks to those people who had never failed to impress me of their love and kindness. I pray the very best to us all and may Allah's blessings become our great companion all the way to success.


Furthermore, one special number did occur, today in history of every 100 years. It falls @ 12:34:56 7/8/09. Where was I on that time?

I was in the car, driving all the way to Rumah Anak Yatim Taman Medan with Pn Maznah to meet Hjh Kamariah, the caretaker of the orphanage home. This visit is specially to confirm on the Saturday event @ The Woods Resort, Ulu Yam, that we had planned a month earlier. Too many things in my head at that moment, but Pn Maznah reminded me to smile while she snap a photo of me ngam-ngam few seconds after "that moment".

The program has been planned earlier. But before that, we had rekee few other orphanage homes to reassure our service meets the right target of people. Rumah Amal Limpahan Kasih @ Kampung Aman, Puchong, the 1st home we visited for this purpose was not so bad at all. I was so grateful to see they have a proper system in place, effective scheduling for the children, one stop centre for collecting incoming donations from various places, as well as functioning as the distribution centre for other home branches and single mothers. Plus, they have also operate one nursery, selling flowers and plants, located at the same area of the house. This maybe has become part of their side income to support their financial needs.

Well.. that's all for the special day. I just pray for everything being planned work as planned. Amin.

Jejak Furqan

Menyusuri sebuah jejak warna yang dulu pernah menghias puisi seorang pemuja, demi sebuah cinta.

Desir angin tua menyapa kalbu yang masih kebasahan oleh hujan panas yang pernah datang entah dari mana.

Membawa kenangan dan pengharapan. Sedikit pun tak bertitah 'tuk mengusik pedih luka, atau mengundang tangis yang bersembunyi di balik kesegaran embun-embun pagi di taman ini.

Justru ingin bertanya jawab, pada saksi-saksi yang tak pernah buta dan tuli, tapi selalu bisu itu. Adakah berguna sebuah sejarah kekalahan pada seorang pejuang yang miskin (jiwa)? Seberapakah kudrat yang ada untuk mengkambus awan hitam yang menari-nari di balik tembok pemisah antara haq dan kebathilan? Ternyata jawabnya ada dalam setiap hela nafas yang menghembus, silih berganti antara malam dan siang, antara kalah dan menang.

Sang pemuja berlari kencang mengejar dan dikejar oleh pemasung waktu dan cita yang tertinggalkan. Hingga jejak kembali ia ke taman ini, tempat mula percobaan dan tantangan, penguji iman dan amal. Siapkah ia menapak jalan semula, sedang bekal diberi ibu hanya seberkas pelajaran dari sebuah sejarah kegagalan...?

p.s. nyum nyum, banana split (of Dairy King, Selera Putrajaya Food Court) is one good ending for this poem :-)
