Piala II

Alhamdulillah.

Satu per satu. 

Milik Allah SWT segala pujian dan sembahan makhluk sekelian alam. 

Muta'akhir, aku semakin berminat dgn Paediatric. I think I can do it. 

I know some of you would roll your eyes in disbelief, particularly if you have read my earlier entries; that I have changed my interest for lots of times! From this to that and what not. 

It can't be helped, I guess. I'm still exploring and trying. The game is still young. I have to die-try to know. I'm not a genius; I'm just a guy who would learn from making mistakes and taking risks. Loads of them. Before I can make a correct decision I have to make ten of unwise and stupid ones.  

As such, it takes me awhile to decide; and yes, this might not turn out to be the right one after all; for all you know. 

Dear God, guide me. Let me not go astray. Let me not go to the path of shame and destruction. 

I have made my application into the paediatric training position next year. I have to go for interviews first. And it would not be until the end of September before I might hear anything from them. 

In the mean time, the hospital has just recently (this afternoon actually) agreed to sponsor my Advance Paediatric Life Support (APLS) course. Alhamdulillah. The HR workforce lady rang me and told me the jolly good news. 

APLS is a continuous training course which aims to, as the name implies, train candidates for managing emergency cases in children and babies. It serves both as an education course and a certificate examination. Holding the certificate would certainly helps in improving your credentials in applying for advance paediatric training. 

The available spots are limited and the cost is more than two thousand dollars (I was told). That's why I'm so happy they finally granted my application. 

Next in the tick-box list would be to secure the training position, apply for postgraduate certificate in child health (DCH, University of Sydney) and take the royal college exams before admitted as a fellow (FRACP). But that is still a long way to go. 

Please include me in your du'as dear readers (if any). It's hard and competitive. 

One small step at a time. InshaAllah.

If my wife reads this; I am doing this for our family. Take my hand, please, and let us walk this road together.

Kempen lintas jalan dengan selamat.

Mudah

Ramai yang kata 'Agama Islam ini Mudah'. Setiap kali aku jumpa dgn frasa ini, terbit satu perasaan tak senang dan gelisah dalam hati aku. 

Aku rasa tak setuju dgn perkataan 'mudah'.  Melainkan ada ayat suci Al-quran atau hadis Rasul SAW yg spesifik berkata demikian. 

Kalau mudah, tak akan ada susah payah, perit jerih dlm mempertahankan aqidah ini. Lihatlah sirah, terokailah sejarah. Membaca Al-quran pun hatta ada cara-caranya, dan menerbitkan hukum pula begitu ketat disiplin ilmunya. 

Barangkali perkataan yg lebih sesuai adalah 'jelas'. 

Tapi, bila fikir-fikir balik, it is somewhat 'mudah' juga, kerana semuanya sudah jelas dan nyata, sudah diperihalkan dan diperincikan segenap aspek. Jadi, 'mudah'. 

In a way, perhaps.

Piala

Dah lama tak nampak tiang gol. Kadang-kadang, buat-buat tak nampak. Most of the time, tak nak nampak pun.

Kalau nampak, tak tahu macam mana nak sumbat gol. Kadang-kadang, bila dah tahu, tak mahu pula. Most of the time, tengok saja member lain yang sumbat gol.

Sekali imbas, macam kiasu.

Memang pun.

Tapi, kadang-kadang, tertanya pada diri. Sanggupkah hanya duduk termanggu, sambil tengok orang lain julang piala?

Apa dia?

Ya?




Tak sanggup.

Let's move on.

Saum

With only one more day to go, I'm wishing all muslims a very good and barakah Ramadhan.

Water under the bridge, and everyday is a new day.

Rise up, and shine.

Tahrir and Tamarud

Coorperation would only last as long as the status quo of those involved remain unchanged.

My solidarity for Mr. President of Egypt, Dr. Mursi.

A point that I humbly urge my fellow countrymen to deeply ponder.
