After the Rain

What a moving song by Najwa Mahiaddin, which was officially released yesterday afternoon on her Facebook page.

The song is very much relevant to Malaysia's current political drama as well as the sad episode of MH370.

We may all fall down
But we all get up
Hold your head up Malaysia
After the rain comes the sun
You may listen the track at https://www.facebook.com/najwamusic/videos/10152863787606184/

Thank you Najwa for a beautiful and soulful song.

Redang Island Trip 2015


Thank you Nazrol for inviting me to join his trip to one of the most beautiful islands I've visited to date.

This is my second time to Redang Island, after my first one in 2012. We stayed at the same resort i.e. Redang Lagoon Resort. It's not posh but you don't have to worry about the food, because it's halal.

And this time, we took speed boat from the Merang Jetty, not the Shahbandar Jetty in Kuala Terengganu because it reaches the island faster from here - only 45 minutes.

If in the previous trip, I bumped into Fauziah Gous and Iqram Dinzly filming a telemovie there, this time around I was told by Ziana Din that an AF alumni was there staying in the same resort as us. He's the newcomer, Aman Aziz.

Anyhow, it was a pleasant and relaxing trip and I did enjoy my stay in one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Guys, let us preserve this treasure for the generations to come.

Murah Hati dan Kelangsungan Hidup

Sehari dua sebelum Aidilfitri, para netizen berdiskusi di Facebook tentang seorang ayah membawa tiga orang anaknya menaiki motorsikal pulang ke kampung.

Seminggu kemudiannya, viral lagi di Facebook tentang seorang peniaga yang pemurah, mendermakan sebuah kereta Iswara kepada keluarga ini untuk kegunaan seharian. Itupun, setelah puas memujuk si ayah selama dua jam untuk menerima pemberian ini.

Sekarang, tertanya-tanya benak ini apakah kereta itu bakal menyelesaikan hal ini - pulang ke kampung dengan selamat.

Hati ini juga tertanya-tanya, ke mana suri rumah keluarga ini? Adakah mereka mempunyai anak-anak yang lain? Tidakkah mereka juga pulang ke kampung untuk beraya? Bagaimana ya? Satu demi satu soalan datang tanpa jawapan.

Pada aku, masyarakat perlu disedarkan tentang bahaya menunggang motorsikal berempat sejauh 300-400 km itu. Mungkin si ayah menunggang dengan cermat tetapi ada juga kemalangan yang berlaku ekoran kelalaian pemandu yang lain. Aku tidak pernah menunggang motorsikal hampir 20 tahun tetapi aku pernah memandu lebih jauh daripada itu. Sedikit sebanyak keletihan tetap dirasa.

Mungkinkah itu adalah pilihan yang paling ekonomikal tetapi faktor keselamatannya bagaimana pula?

Aku rasa isu sebenar adalah kos sara hidup. Jika betul telahanku, pemberian kereta tersebut belum tentu akan membantu keluarga ini ke sana ke sini dengan murah dan selamat.

Aku rasa lebih sesuai bantuan diberi dalam bentuk pemberian tiket bas ekspres kepada keluarga ini. Jika sesiapa mempunyai maklumat lanjut tentang keluarga ini, mungkin boleh dipanjangkan kepada aku supaya boleh diusahakan inisiatif #TiketBasUntukPulangKeDesa.

Apa-apa pun, aku berdoa kepada Allah taala semoga keluarga ini diberikan perlindungan dan kelapangan hidup.

Melbourne property inflated, bribery involved, says The Age on Mara deal

Jika benar, mereka inilah pengkhianat yang sebenarnya. Mereka khianat amanah bangsa dan negara.

#TolakPerasuah
#BenciRasuah


Vendors for Dudley International House in Melbourne have admitted in a sworn testimony that they inflated the price of the property, rubbishing claims by Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) that it paid lower than the market rate for the property, The Age said. The Australian paper's regional editor and journalist told The Malaysian Insider the.... http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/melbourne-property-inflated-bribery-involved-says-the-age-on-mara-deal

Baby hatches aim to reduce infant dumping

Baby hatches, a place for parents to anonymously leave infants for adoption, are aimed at reducing the rate of baby dumping cases in Malaysia and saving the lives of newborn babies.

KPJ Penang Specialist Hospital chief executive officer Abd Aziz Abd Rahman said many still threw unwanted babies into garbage bins, toilet bowls, drains or lavatories despite baby hatches being made available.

"Dumping babies is one of the easiest ways by a couple who commits adultery and illegitimate pregnancies in this modern life, but they must not dump in disgusting areas.

"Many are still not aware of baby hatch places amid phobias and panic thus throwing the baby into garbage bins. The spirit of having a baby hatch is to help save babies' lives," he told reporters today.

According to Abd Aziz, a baby hatch was opened in KPJ Penang last year but had yet to receive any babies due to a lack of awareness of such a service. He added that the act of leaving a baby in the hatch was not a criminal offence.

He also expressed hope that illegitimate newborns could be left in a safe environment as they did not ask to be born but nevertheless had the right to live.

Currently, nine KPJs offer baby hatches, namely KPJ Tawakkal (Kuala Lumpur), KPJ Seremban, KPJ Ipoh, KPJ Johor, KPJ Kuantan, KPJ Penang, KPJ Perdana (Kota Baru), KPJ@Damai (Kota Kinabalu) and KPJ Kuching.

Abd Aziz said seven babies were saved by baby hatches at nine KPJ hospitals since the programme was launched in 2010 by non-governmental organisation OrphanCARE Foundation.

He said KPJ had an integrated standard operating procedure for the managing of the baby hatch collaboration with OrphanCARE, including lodging a police report within 24 hours after the incidence report was made to OrphanCARE.

Abd Aziz said the baby would then be released to police, OrphanCARE and representatives of the Social Welfare Department for future adoption which had a long waiting list. – Bernama, June 22, 2015.
