Bumpy Ride

Yesterday,I finally do something about my life.Fetching up my bike from a relative house in Tanah Merah.Its quite far from my place approximately 180km distanced. Since the bike was rarely used,nobody really care about the road tax.Consequently, I have to take the old road, through the jungles and mountains(that sounds so cool rite =P) in order to avoid police roadblock.

The journey started by filling up my tank(my bike's tank,not literally my tank hehe) at Petronas. Since I saw the fuel was still at half of tank, I decided just to top up for RM3 because I don't want the fuel to be too much.I played my music player and hit the road.

From Tanah Merah to Jeli,the traffic was smooth.Sometimes I had to slow down to increase the volume of music because the sound of the engine was too loud.By doing so,I have to reach my left pocket while my other hand handling the bike,while moving bout 60km/h.Sometimes the handle got shaky when i did that.

The worse was yet to come.The road from the turn I took towards Dabong was awful. Its an old road and rarely fixed.To make it even more challenging,it was raining and I so happened to be not wearing any sweater or rain coat.Mandi free huhu the road was quite slippery and every time I accelerated the bike got shaky again.

When the rain finally stopped,I was really grateful. So I continued the journey happily.Until I reached Kg.Star.This was where my bike starting to act like a crazy horse.When I tried to go faster,the bike went forth and slowed down repeatedly.I was starting to worry because at that moment,the place is kinda a middle of nowhere.I tried to push the bike a little further,at least till I was in more civilized zone.

Alhamdulillah,with my newly transformed 'ride', i reached this small station gas called Petronas huhu(I'm not promoting k hehe) I checked out what was really the problem and it turned out that the bike was out of gas.Lucky me that i stopped at the gas station.

So I filled it up again and with do'a selamat this time,I resumed my journey.There's no problem whatsoeva till I reached home at 6.
Moral of this story are:

1)Pay your road tax
2)Get a new bike if possible
3)Always baca do'a b4 you travel
4)Don't be too stinky to fill up ur tank

So hopefully you guys can learn from my experience huhu this is the road that I've taken

Last Friday,I went to a tazkirah by this ustaz(sorry i have problem remembering names).There's one guy ask him about how many raka'at terawikh should be done.Ustaz said according to Imam Hassan al-Banna,if 8 raka'at can make you all happy,then do 8.If 20 can make everyone satisfied, then do 20.But if either both 8 or 20 can't make everyone happy,then don't do it at all. Because the hukum of unity(ukhuwwah) among muslim is wajib(compulsory) compared to terawikh which is sunat.

So fellow friends, if we see nowadays,unity is not really our priority. Many of us are more individualistic.One obvious example,politic in our country. To those who went to orientation for oversea students sponsored by MARA, you should know how agonizing it was. Anyway, i remembered YB Hj Noh said something like 'kita buat ni blablablablablabla utk orang melayu and blabla some more". The point is, they do...... whatever they do for us just for the sake of malay people.But if they really want to see the malay prosper, have they ever talk or negotiate with the other side of malay,keADILan or to be more specific with Anwar Ibrahim.

Yeah,I know they may do muzakarah with PAS but the things is,PAS is not the one controlling PKR.In fact PAS status in PKR is starting to be uncertain.Umno must accept the fact that people don't trust them anymore. Why not share the power instead of brawl with each other.If this goes on i'm pretty sure we will lose the only thing we have,power.

Ok,may be i'm being too idealistic or naive.But yeah, I am naive.I'm naive because I don't understand why is it so hard to put all the hates behind,to share power for the sake of our people,if that is their real intention to be in politic that is.

So fellow friends, for we are the next generation,I hope we don't do the same mistake as our leaders have done.We still have a long way to go.After this,everyone of us may participate in different organization,parties but do not forget who we really are.
