Petua cantik : Macam mana nak jadi cantik?


"Ain, macam mana nak jadi cantik?" 
"apa? cantik?" 
"ye la. macam mana nak jadi cantik?" 
"What do you mean? Okay, how you describe "cantik" itself? "
Okay, i'm speechless. Apa yang menerjah benak fikiran aku, nak jadi cantik kena tahu dulu apa makna cantik bagi diri kau sendiri. Try tepuk dada tanya "apa makna cantik? macam mana aku describe "cantik" tu? "

Kalau pada pandangan kau bila orang cakap cantik je kau terus fikir "cantik - putih, tinggi, langsing, comel, kaki panjang, leher jinjang" tu maksud nya kau jadi fizikal sebagai ukuran kecantikan seseorang. Ada sesetengah orang, keperibadian menjadi ukuran kecantikan seseorang - cliche . Ada orang fikir cantik tu gaya, personaliti, pemakaian sesorang menampakkan dia cantik. Maksud cantik pada setiap individu berbeza dan bila makna cantik berbeza mesti cara nak jadi cantik pun berbeza. Ye dak?

Bagi aku semua orang di lahirkan cantik selagi kau sempurna fizikal takdak kekurangan cacat cela, kau kena bersyukur lah.

"Laqod kholaqnal insaana fii ahsani taqwiim"
maksudnya : "Sungguh, Kami telah menciptakan manusia dalam bentuk yang sebaik-baiknya." ( Qs. 95 : 4 ).
Bagi aku kecantikan wajah rupa paras bukan segala-galanya as long as kau punya adab tata-susila tertib akhlak terjaga. Biar rupa buruk jangan perangai macam beruk. Try bersyukur dan terima diri kau apa adanya. Nak jadi cantik senang je, aku ada satu petua selalu senyum. Kalau kau selalu senyum, tipu la takdak orang tertarik dengan senyuman kau tu. Tipu lah takdak orang turut bahagia bila nampak kau tersenyum gembira. Senyum boleh buat kau nampak cantik, periang, gembira dan yang penting awet muda gittew! :)

Kecantikan fizikal akan hilang dimamah usia tapi kecantikan akhlak kau will last forever. Cantik fizikal tak berguna jugak kalau inner beauty takdak. Macam buah epal yang nampak masak merah sedap di makan hakikatnya adalah sarang ulat. Daripada kau duk fikir duk banding-bandingkan kecantikan diri kau dengan orang lain, baik kau berusaha mencantikkan dalaman kau tu. Tapi walaupun dalam tersangat penting penampilan kau nak kena jaga jugak, jangan lah serabai sangat biarlah sentiasa nampak kemas jangan over biarlah sekadar sedap mata memandang.

"Allahumma kamaa hassanta khalqii, fahassin khuluqii."maksud: Ya Allah, sebagaimana Engkau telah memperindah kejadian (fizikal) ku, maka perindahkanlah pula akhlakku (HR. Ahmad)

When Love Arrives - Sarah Kay & Phil Kaye


Demmm.. I love this poem so damn much..

I knew exactly what love looked like- in seventh grade. Even though I hadn't met love yet, if love had wandered into my homeroom I would've recognized him at first glance. Love wore a hemp necklace. I would've recognized her at first glance, love wore a tight french braid. Love played acoustic guitar and knew all my favorite Beatles songs. Love wasn't afraid to ride the bus with me. And I knew, I just must be searching the wrong classrooms, just must be checking the wrong hallways, she was there, I was sure of it. If only I could find him.

But when love finally showed up, she had a bow cut. He wore the same clothes every day for a week. Love hated the bus. Love didn't know anything about The Beatles. Instead, every time I try to kiss love, our teeth got in the way. Love became the reason I lied to my parents. I’m going to- Ben’s house. Love had terrible rhythm on the dance floor, but made sure we never missed a slow song. Love waited by the phone because she knew that if her father picked up it would be: “Hello? Hello? I guess they hung up.”

And love grew, stretched like a trampoline. Love changed. Love disappeared, slowly, like baby teeth, losing parts of me I thought I needed. Love vanished like an amateur magician, and everyone could see the trapdoor but me. Like a flat tire, there were other places I planned on going, but my plans didn't matter. Love stayed away for years, and when love finally reappeared, I barely recognized him. Love smelt different now, had darker eyes, a broader back, love came with freckles I didn't recognize. New birthmarks, a softer voice. Now there were new sleeping patterns, new favorite books. Love had songs that reminded him of someone else, songs love didn't like to listen to. So did I.

But we found a park bench that fit us perfectly, we found jokes that make us laugh. And now, love makes me fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies. But love will probably finish most of them for a midnight snack. Love looks great in lingerie but still likes to wear her retainer. Love is a terrible driver, but a great navigator. Love knows where she’s going, it just might take her two hours longer than she planned. Love is messier now, not as simple. Love uses the words “boobs” in front of my parents. Love chews too loud. Love leaves the cap off the toothpaste. Love uses smiley faces in her text messages. And turns out, love shits!

But love also cries. And love will tell you you are beautiful and mean it, over and over again. You are beautiful. When you first wake up, “you are beautiful.” When you've just been crying, “you are beautiful.” When you don’t want to hear it, “you are beautiful.” When you don’t believe it, “you are beautiful.” When nobody else will tell you, “you are beautiful.” Love still thinks- you are beautiful. But love is not perfect and will sometimes forget, when you need to hear it most, you are beautiful, do not forget this.

Love is not who you were expecting, love is not who you can predict. Maybe love is in New York City, already asleep, and you are in California, Australia, wide awake. Maybe love is always in the wrong time zone, maybe love is not ready for you. Maybe you are not ready for love. Maybe love just isn't the marrying type. Maybe the next time you see love is twenty years after the divorce, love is older now, but just as beautiful as you remembered. Maybe love is only there for a month. Maybe love is there for every firework, every birthday party, every hospital visit. Maybe love stays- maybe love can’t. Maybe love shouldn't.

Love arrives exactly when love is supposed to, and love leaves exactly when love must. When love arrives, say, “Welcome. Make yourself comfortable.” If love leaves, ask her to leave the door open behind her. Turn off the music, listen to the quiet, whisper, “Thank you. Thank you for stopping by.”

PCS : Persuasive Presentation - The Water Birth


TOPIC: The Water Birth.

PURPOSE: to persuade why you should use water birth method.

Should you use water birth method? If you say no, why you do not want to have water birth?

Lets be the one that answer the entire question why your answer no supposedly to be a big yes. And now I will explain why the answer should be yes.

1. What is Water Birth?
2. History of water birth.
3. Benefits:
·         For Mommy
·         For Baby

4. Criteria use water for birth
5. Past Research

Now, I will try to explain you why you should say yes to use water for birth. First of all, what is water birth?


1. What is Water Birth?
-          Water birth is the process of giving birth in a tub of warm water.
-          Has been proven to provide pain relief for the mother and a less traumatic birth experience for the baby.
-          Has been used in the United Kingdom, the United States, Europe Japan and including Malaysia (since 2009).

2. History of water birth
-          Pacific Islanders have practiced water birth since before their meeting with European explorers; and it is believed that the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt were birthed in the waters of the Nile.
-          1st water birthing in 1803 in France, and was developed as a medical technique in the 1960s by Russian and French researchers.


Besides that, the benefits of a water birth for a mother and a baby go beyond the simple relaxing qualities of water birth.

3.0Benefits of water birth
3.1 Benefits of water birth for a mother.
-          Warm water is soothing, comforting, relaxing.
-          The water used :
·         To increase the mother energy.
·         to reduce stress-related hormones
·         relaxes the pelvic floor muscles
·         allowing the mother’s body to produce endorphins which serve as pain-inhibitors
·         The perineum to become more elastic and relaxed, reducing the incidence and severity of tearing and the need for an episiotomy and stitches.
-          Since water provides a greater sense of privacy, it can reduce inhibitions, anxiety, and fears.
-          Buoyancy promotes more efficient uterine contractions and improved blood circulation resulting in better oxygenation of the uterine muscles.
-          Less pain for the mother, and more oxygen for the baby.
-          The effect of buoyancy lessens a mothers body weight, allowing free movement and new positioning.
-          Immersion in water often helps lower high blood pressure caused by anxiety.
-          In addition, as the laboring woman relaxes physically, she is able to relax mentally with greater ability to focus on the birth process.
-          Study in Canada - 100% women who birthed in water use no pain medication.
-          Fewer birth canal injuries, vagina, perineum and vulva
-          Can speed up normal labors, sometimes resulting in less than a two to four-hour.

2. Benefits water birth for a baby.
-          Provides an environment similar to the amniotic. (Avoid shock – air )
-          Easier more gentle transition from one womb of water to an external womb of water, weightless, warm, wet and soft
-          Decreased trauma at birth
-          More blood to baby due to better blood circulation in mother
-          Baby doesn't receive the invasive stimuli to induce breathing, which results in less crying, babies after birth resulting in a calmer, more alert state
-          More safe than unsafe alternative in childbirth
-          Bacteria is dissipated in the water reducing infection to baby
-          Cord cutting after birth is delayed until it stops pulsating
-          Less problems with breastfeeding after birth
-          Less trauma to mother means less trauma to baby


So what do you think about water birth? Before answer my question, I would like to tell you the criteria to use water for birth and show you some evidence to prove that why you should say yes to water birth.

4. Criteria use water for birth
-          Be healthy with no complications of pregnancy.
-          Be having only one baby who is presenting head first.( not inverse)
-          Be at least 37 weeks pregnant.
-          Not be a carrier of, or infected with HIV,
-          Hepatitis B or C virus.
-          Not be excessively overweight.
-          Not have broken your waters for longer than 18-24 hours (unless antibiotics have already been started).
5. Past Research
*a few snapshot and picture

Childbirth is always challenging. It is no small thing to bring a new soul into the world, no small thing to suffer so that another may have life. But birth is not meant to be unbearable. We are not meant to suffer so completely that the experience leaves us feeling less of a woman, instead of more. Should we choose water birth as delivery method? Why do not have a water birth? So according to this evidence; proven that water birth has lots of benefits and basically no negatives.
Based on my points earlier, I would like to persuade you to use water birth as the method of birth.

Question and Answer Session.

1.       Are there any concern about water birth method is being used?
2.       What are the situations are not ideal using this method?

Practice Session

1.       I have been practicing alone in my room, in the night, by myself.
2.       I would need more improvement to persuade people because i still find it hard in finding the right tone, and i seem to be quite nervous when i forget what to talk about, or everytime i realized i was reaching the time limit, which ends up ruining the whole presentation.

Time Limit.

                I still can’t quite stay within the time limit, due to the nervousness and a lot of stuttering. Moreover, i need to consider which type of visual that i am going to be using during the presentation.

KLIK for the slides :)

Dalam asyik mengatur langkah
Terkadang kita diuji dan sampai satu tahap kita rasa ujian itu begitu berat
Kau tidak mampu menahan hingga kau terduduk dan menangis
Saat itu jangan di seka air mata mengalir

Menangislah kalau itu kau perlu

Menangislah kalau itu pilihan kau ada
Menangislah kalau itu yang kau mampu 

Menangis bukan bermaksud kau lemah
Menangis bukan bermaksud kau kalah
Kau sudah cukup kuat
Kau sudah cukup tabah
Kau manusia bukan robot sudah tentu kau ada perasaan

Kalau menangis mampu mengubah kau jadi manusia yang lagi kuat
Kenapa perlu takut dengan airmata?
Kalau menangis mampu membuat kau kembali kepadaNya
Kenapa perlu takut untuk menangis?
Kalau menangis mampu menjahit sejadah Iman yang kian terkoyak
Kenapa perlu malu menangis di depanNya?

Dalam asyik mengatur langkah ada yang tersasar
Tersasar hampir menuju kesesatan
Saat itu kita cuma mampu berharap ditunjukkanNya jalan pulang
