Salam, good day. Last evening we went out for movie for the first time. For myself, it was after 15 long years. The last time I went out for movie was the showing of 'Jumanji', back in 1995! The kids seems very happy for their first movie outing, Zahra' with her cool, Sa'adah with her un-settle style and Abdul Aziz as always, follow what his sister Sa'adah is doing. Last night we've watched 'Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah' featuring Awie (Abang Usin) as a leading actor. It was a good horror/comedy movie that will make you want to scream out loud. It will not disappoints you, the horror scene is intense whilst the comedic scene is stomach-breaking! 'Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah' is a sequel to 'Zombie Kampung Pisang' (which the kids watch very often at home on dvd). At Q-Lap Cineplex, the pop corn is very good as well:)

Move on.

Salam, good day. With the spirit of hijrah, I was thinking of moving elsewhere. I'd like to share the Friday's sermon on 3 December, "Following the hijrah, Muslims' lives were changed to one more civilised and complete," said the sermon. "Should we analyse and study the hijrah of the prophet from Mekah to Madinah, we will find that the hijrah brought a huge change in the rise and spread of Islam."
The sermon said that the secrets behind the hijrah should be made as a lesson in Muslims' daily lives, as they were among the most important and useful lessons left by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
"Although the hijrah of the prophet will not take place again in this day and age, its message continues on," said the sermon.
The sermon also reminded Muslims that the hijrah was not merely the physical act of moving from one place or country to another, but it could also means a shift of attitude or behaviour from bad to good.
"It is this kind of hijrah that must be carried out by each Muslim," it added.
This is not a resolution, but this is some sort of motivation to urge my self to be more proactive and productive for the years coming. May Allah the almighty guide me:)

'Our people...regard Australia as one of our closest friends and partners in the Asia Pacific Region. There are strong, emotional reasons for this, of course. Itwas the arrival of Australian forces that signalled the end of World War Two for us. This has inevitably created a very special bond of affection and respect between us.'
Titah by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah Sultan dan Yang Dipertuan Negara Brunei Darussalam, Parliament House, Canberra, 15 February 2005.

I need to see the specialists.

Photo opportunity with HE Mr.George Yeo (The Foreign Minister of Singapore), *It was an honour, I'm a big fan. He is on a holiday with a group of Singaporean family and they looks very warm and mutual. Maybe we should one day organise such activity, holiday with your minister. Isnt that sounds good? I'm sure it would help the minister to know more about us and of course support them more.
