Ahli akademik sering menganggap golongan 'agama' sebagai tidak akademik atau saintifik dalam method perjuangannya.
Golongan 'agama' pula sering curiga dengan ahli akademik yang tiris ke arah 'logik' dan skeptik.
Aku rasa: peliharalah keseimbangan. Kecilkan ego.
Ya Tuhan, peliharalah aku dari kesombongan ilmu pengetahuan.

Aku sekarang di Hargreave-Andrew Library. Mulanya nak balik awal selepas selesai submit online assignment, tapi tergendala sebab hujan... Hujan! Dah lama tak hujan lebat sebegini. Mula-mula tadi guruh, kemudian petir, dan lepas tu turun hujan rahmat. Komputer yang aku gunakan dekat dengan tingkap, menghadap makmal kimia tingkat dua bersebelahan dengan taman. Beberapa pasangan kekasih mat saleh 'bersidai' di tepi tingkap, melihat hujan turun menitik-nitik, sambil saling mengungkapkan janji kasih, barangkali. Aku senyum. Sejuk! Sejuk dalam kebasahan dan kedinginan hujan perolakan.Sejuk yang menghembus sampai ke dasar hati. Terasa seperti air wudhu' segar yang diambil di tepi sumur sawah...
Barangkali, dalam seminit dua lagi, redalah hujan. InshaAllah. Kalau tak reda pun, boleh redah rintik-rintik hujan kurniaan Ilahi. Biar basah ubun dan jemalaku. Biar basah denyut nadiku. Biar basah dengan titik-titik Kauthar.

Kadang-kadang, dalam kegelojohan kita untuk menggapai kesempurnaan dan kekamilan, kita tanpa sedar masuk ke dalam jurang kekeliruan dan kejumudan yang sering kita cemuh-cemuhkan itu.
Our failure to understand it will cost us another millennia to rise. Again.

Mula-mula, gagahkan juga nak pergi, tapi lepas terhuyung-hayang dlm OT, consultant suruh balik. Ambil ubat dulu, lepas tu balik.
Seksa juga sakit ni. Walaupun tak serius mana.

Memang seronok kalau berbincang pasal ini. Tambah-tambah lagi sekarang dalam fasa memohon dan memilih tempat kerja.
Untuk aku, polisi buat masa ini adalah 'keep it opened'. Mohon sebanyak mana yang boleh, pastikan ufuk sentiasa terbentang luas.
Keputusan kita buat nanti.

A doctor I would wait hours for to see
It was a busy day for the clinic as usual. As expected I had to wait for my turn to see the doctor. In the humid environment, some people were already showing their frustration, so did I.
When my number was called, I entered Room 6, where I saw a young Chinese doctor. I am impressed by the way this doctor treats his patient.
I don’t know his name but from the way he treated me, I wouldn’t mind waiting for hours to visit such a doctor.
He explained in detail everything regarding my disease, and examined me properly even on such a busy day.
No doctor before him used the stethoscope to listen to my heartbeat and breathing, but he did.
All the previous doctors just informed me “semua darah ok”, except this young doctor who explained my blood results to me in detail.
Although it was lunch hour, this doctor continued to see all the patients.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank this young Chinese doctor in Room 6, Klinik Kesihatan Kepala Batas, for his professional service.
Besides, I hope the Health Ministry will send more doctors to the district clinics to meet the health needs of the rakyat.
Kepala Batas, Penang.

Gambar-gambar manusia beratur panjang-panjang untuk mendapatkan bekalan dan membeli barang keperluan sebagai bukti. Jelas di dada-dada akhbar.
Agaknya perkara yang samakah boleh berlaku di Malaysia?
Kalau teringatkan kes duit syiling dan beras bertabur di atas lebuh raya dulu - rasanya tidak.
Dan kita mengaku kita orang berakhlak =)

Masih lagi mengajar,
Sedang aku kini sudah besar,
Dulu wajahnya muda,
Kini rambut memutih kepala,
Ada anak-anak muridnya,
Kini memegang jawatan tinggi,
Tidak kurang pula,
Bergelar usahawan berjaya.
Guruku yang baik,
Masih di situ,
Masih memandu kereta lama,
Masih menuju sekolah yang sama,
Tiada kelihatan jemu,
Dari air mukanya,
Tiada kedengaran bosan,
Dari suara bibirnya,
Dia gigih menggenggam,
Tanggungjawab yang diamanahkan.
Guruku yang baik,
Dia masih di situ,
Berdiri sebagai guru,
Dialah pendidik bangsa!

Kamera Nikon D40x tentunya bukan antara wish-list fotografer-fotografer sekarang, tapi what-the-heck, kamera itu telah banyak berjasa padaku. Ke gunung sudah, ke laut sudah, ke hutan sudah, ke kenduri kahwin sudah, ke Australia, Indonesia, Jepun, Thailand sudah, apa lagi yang aku nak? Badannya yang ringan dan fungsi yang tidak begitu kompleks membuatkan dia adalah sahabat kembara yang sejati.
Oh, aku belum beri nama padanya. Baiklah, namanya adalah Qutb.
Rest in peace, buddy. Lest I forget.

Kasihan pada penulis novel Interlok yang kini jadi sensasi, Datuk Abdullah Hussain. Kasihan kerana dia adalah mangsa keadaan.
Pelik juga, kerana jarang, di Malaysia, sasterawan diberi publisiti hangat sampai sedemikian rupa.
Pelik juga, kerana jarang, di Malaysia, sebuah buku diberi kritikan padu sampai sebegitu rupa.
Sebab, secara purata, rakyat kita yang berjumlah 28 juta ini sebenarnya tak gemar membaca pun.
*Satu muka surat pada 1997, dua muka surat pada 2002, dan dua naskah buku pada 2005.
Memalukan! Entah apa yang kita sibukkan agaknya.

But it did happen. Why?
Well, I don't know. I don't know how to speculate. What I know is that it could happen again.
Up to this writing, some parts of Johor were already under-water, perhaps due to the unceasing and massive rainfall for the past 3 or 4 days. Areas around Johor Bahru like Kulai and Ulu Tiram were all affected, though not as bad as some areas in Segamat.
Even though the magnitude of the flood is not that menacing as compared to 2007, issues like hygiene and food are still very much reverberate with the same intensity. Why? Probably because the number of families that needs to be relocated is pretty much the same, hence the same amount of victims involved.
I went to Ulu Tiram last night under the banner of MERCY Malaysia, an international humanitarian aid organization, to distribute some health goods and stuff related to personal and basic hygiene. In some areas, in addition, we need to set up mobile clinics. We were organized under several teams and were given specific flood centre to attend to.
In my opinion, food is not really a problem, but hygiene is. The condition of the flood centres are really bad. Taking into account that most of its temporary inhabitants were children, senior citizens and expectant mothers, the gravity of the problem could easily multiplied into a dangerous level. Clean water is a scarcity and waterborne diseases are rampant. And these problems will continue to create nuisance even long after the flood has subsided.
Fortunately, the help is prompt this time. An army of volunteers as well as government sector 'flood' in those areas almost immediately, with various kind of aids and goods. It is good and also heart-warming to see that these people stayed up the night just to make sure that the victims are properly taken care of.
Seeing this thing reminds me that maybe there are still some amount of altruism left, albeit a small one, in this so-called modernizing society. That's right, love and compassion towards others are what we really need these days, even though it is harder to get by, day by day.
On a different note, the team is still organizing a mission tomorrow to an indigenous - Orang Asli - settlement in Kahang. I was told that the place is not accessible now by road. They had to arrange for a boat or two to get there with the Jabatan Hal-Ehwal Orang Asli (JHEOA). They need two teams at least for this particular mission; one team comprised of a medical team and another for huminatarian aid. I was told to be on stand-by tomorrow, and if I join them, that means I won't be home for Chinese New Year holidays. Sorry mom! (as if she reads this)
I need to get back to sleep. May Allah S.W.T forgive us for what we have done and bless us with good life.

A decision is made when we have, or appear to have, more than one choice. Usually, we use few factors to help us to decide.
But, factors can only influence. Religion, moral values, certain philosophies, economy, intellectuality or rationality etc. can only, at best, highlight why a certain choice is far more superior than the other one.
At the end of the corridor, it is not them who made the choice. Who, then, is?
Here's a question. Do we really make a decision while we are dreaming? Is there an active role for the dreamer to make a choice of, say, A instead of B? Or does anyone remember solving any mathematical equation in their dream?
In short, is there any thinking process involved in the realm of dreams?
For, as far as I could remember, dreams are likely to be described as narratives; the dreamer is just there to play the prescribed act.
Therefore, does our subconscious mind made those decisions all this while?
What does subconscious state of mind has to do, if any, with our 'true self' - the soul. Are they the same thing?
Does the choice we made in our dream shows who we really are?
I don't have all the answers. Yet. But, anyhow, here is my verdict.
We do make decision in our dream. We don't really realize it simply because we know exactly what to decide in any given dream-circumstances.
No matter how many options we have, we always knew exactly what to choose and precisely what to do. It is as clear as and as simple as choosing between drinking water or eating sand for a lost and thirsty bedouin.
When the choice is crystal clear, perhaps we don't realize we are actively making one, at all.
Why it is not like that, then, when we are awake?
Or, if you like the expansive version, why do we tend to ignore the subconscious voice while making decision in our day-to-day life?
I believe that if we could somehow reactivate our subconscious mind during our conscious state, then perhaps most of those difficult decision we have to make may not seem so difficult afterall.
Who or what controls this subconscious mind? Where does it come from? Where would it return to?
Perhaps Imam al-Ghazali rhm has something to offer.
According to him "man is formed of a body and a heart- and by the heart I mean the essence of man's spirit which is the seat of knowledge of God" (McCarthy 1980).
I think it is time for me to do some soul-searching. I have a strange feeling that the direction of my quest would behave something like a centripetal force.
To the centre - and to the whole universe!

Barangkali Rasulullah (S.A.W) tak perlu berdarah dihumbani batu,
Kalau bukan kerana itu,
Barangkali Sumaiyyah tak perlu menanggung seksa sembilu,
Kalau bukan kerana itu,
Barangkali Muhajirin tak perlu bersusah ke negeri baru,
Kalau bukan kerana itu,
Barangkali pemuda Badar kecut melihat musuh nan seribu,
Kalau bukan kerana itu,
Barangkali alam Melayu akan kekal beku dan layu,
Ya Tuhanku, apakah itu?
