HEALTHY REFLECTIONS

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take. When you sit back and look at the decisions you've made in your life, are you happy with the route you've paved?
If you're not, make a change today. The next time you make a choice, ask yourself if this decision will lead you to the path you want to travel along. Set some new goals that will lead you to your dreams and then plan your course.

DAILY MUSLIM WISDOM

Live in this world like a stranger, a wayfarer, and deem yourselves as dwellers of the graves.

- The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Ibn Umar

Once Abu Umamah asked the Prophet about the rights of parents over their children. The Prophet replied, "They are your Paradise and they are your Hell."

- Reported by Abu Umamah

You will not be able to give anyone happiness by means of your wealth, so do it by means of a cheerful countenance and good humor.

- The Prophet Muhammad in Qushayri: al-Risalat al-Qushayriyya

Gratitude for the abundance you have received is the best insurance that the abundance will continue.

- Prophet Muhammad

KANAK-KANAK DI MASJID

Saya mula bersembahyang tarawih pada 18 Ramadhan. Malam pertama di masjid, saya perhatikan beberapa orang kanak-kanak dan orang dewasa bercerita-cerita di luar masjid.

Apabila azan Isya' dilaungkan, masih terdapat beberapa orang bercakap-cakap di dalam dan di luar masjid; kanak-kanak lelaki dan perempuan dengan kawan masing2 berbuat bising. Seharusnya apabila azan dilaungkan, kita sebagai orang Islam, beriman dan dewasa, sepatutnya hormat dan jawab panggilan azan tersebut, dan menjadi contoh kepada kanak-kanak yang datang ke masjid. Berulang-ulang kali disebarkan tentang pentingnya berdiam ketika azan dilaungkan. Dikatakan bahawa, "Sesiapa yang bercakap-cakap ketika azan dilaungkan, Allah akan kelukan lidahnya daripada mengucap "LAAILAAHA ILLAALLAAAH" ketika nyawa nya di cabut."

Yang saya ingin tekankan di sini ialah : Manakah ibubapa kanak-kanak yang membuat bising ketika orang lain sedang bersembahyang? Kenapa dibiarkan kanak-kanak itu bersendirian dengan kawan-kawan mereka? Pada mulanya, kenapalah dibawa kanak-kanak itu kalau tidak dapat dilarang?

Imam yang bertugas juga tidak mengambil berat tentang perkara tersebut. Sepatutnya, imam itu mesti tegas menegur ibubapa yang ada membawa anak-anak mereka ke masjid supaya jangan biarkan mereka berbuat bising atau berlari-lari di dalam dan di luar masjid. Salahkah jika imam itu tegas? Kadang-kadang terdapat ibubapa yang tidak dapat terima teguran, dan ini mejadikan mereka marah dan melawan.

KETAHUILAH : Masjid adalah tempat beribadat bukan tempat bermain!

BAGS..


Bags?? Yes, women cannot do without them. They match their bags with clothes and shoes they wear and some just sling the odd one out without bothering to match with their clothing. And sometimes, they actually look good!
I'm a bagaholic and can't see a nice one. If I happen to see one and like it, it will be playing in my mind until such time I know I can't have it.
Nowadays branded bags come in replicas. For those who cannot afford the genuine ones, will settle for the replica, typically Korean made AAA+. I have my share of those as well. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Coach, Prada, Chanel are very much available from Korea. You can see every Tom, Dick and Harry using those Korean made bags!
As for me, when I decide to buy the Korean made bags, I make sure the model is available from the genuine line. At least, those with genuine taste may not be able to tell immediately that the bag is not original..
Anyway, the bag in the picture is the latest edition to my collection. It's a Vivienne Westwood. I ordered this bag directly from Italy. It's genuine and it cost B$811.50 (USD541.00)

Every now and then I'll be posting one or two bags from my collections. So be sure to check out my blog every few days..

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

Because breast cancer affects women of all ages, it is important that all women, including young women, examine their breasts regularly to pick up any changes. Self-examination is important because if you’re aware of how your breasts normally look and feel, you’re more likely to notice a change if it develops.
In addition to seeing your doctor each year for a breast examination, you should check your breasts regularly. A good time to do this is after the last day of your menstrual cycle or if you do not have periods, the same date each month. Most women find that their breasts are easier to examine just after their period when any premenstrual pain and lumpiness have settled.
You may check your breasts standing up, for example in the shower, or lying down, for example before going to sleep. Your partner should also be alert and look for changes in your breasts.
You can check your breasts by:
Looking at the shape and appearance of your breasts and nipples in the mirror with your hands by your sides
Raising your arms above your head and looking for a change in the shape of the breasts
Feeling for lumps in the breasts either while lying down or standing
Feeling for lumps in the nipples area and in the armpits
You should look out for the following changes:
A lump or lumpiness or even a change in shape or appearance of your breast such a dimpling, redness and appearance of veins
An area that feels different to the rest of your breast or any pain in your breast
Any change in the shape or appearance of your nipple, such as your nipple being pulled in or development of a rash
A discharge from your nipple, particularly if it is bloody
If you find a change don't panic
Most changes in the breast are not related to breast cancer. However, if you do find a change in your breast or a lump, it is important to visit your GP immediately.
Remember, the sooner you see your GP after finding a change in your breast, the better
Your GP will conduct a clinical breast examination to determine whether you will need further testing.
Take control of your health – you can help protect yourself against breast cancer
Unfortunately, many of us will know someone who has been touched by breast cancer, which affects one in eight Australian women1 – but you can help protect yourself against the disease.
More women are surviving breast cancer than ever before due to better testing and treatment. Breast cancer survival is now up to 85 percent1. The smaller a breast cancer is, the simpler the treatment and the better the outcome.


Early detection has been proven to save lives.Be 'Breast Aware' and check your breasts regularly

SIMPLE SUNGKAI

Since day one of Ramadhan, my family and I didn't have any special food for "sungkai" (break fast). All we had was grass jelly, corn, red bean paste, rose syrup and milk, all mixed together in individual bowl. And until today, we are still having the same thing. On days when we have delicacies from the neighbours or my mother, we only eat them after 'Isya prayer. We are happy with these "little" sungkai.

Sesungguhnya Allah tidak suka kepada orang-orang yang membazir di bulan Ramadhan.

To all Muslim readers, happy fasting!
