Just Do It

May will end very soon, I should really thank Allah that I've survived and passed through everything well, assignments, deadline at work, and the ache I suffered for these almost three weeks.:D To be more focus on preparing my thesis for the next semester, I joined a research group promoted by my lecturer. I already felt free to say goodbye to the office yet then they even gave me a promotion which I have always been afraid of. But there's no escape. Everything has been appointed and no way back. So let's just do it all best.

Tests & Trials

Amongst all of these days' hustle and bustle, I feel so grateful that I was still entrusted to be tested. Tests and trials in this life would bring us to a higher level after we've passed it well with huge humility. I know I am not good at this, so that Allah tests me with so many. Then keep smiling, keep fighting! Cause eventually someday, we all will be back to only we originally belong to. :)

Silently Quick

I have so many things in mind with so many words to say..
But perhaps keeping it inside would be just okay for now..

Pictures! I've came back from a short visit to my father's hometown to attend my cousin's wedding party. And I would like to post some photos here, once I have all of the assignments done. :)

Keep Me Strong

Ya Allah, please keep me strong in faith, in believing that You wouldn't give me tests that I couldn't bear.. that everything happens for a very good reason. There's always place to hide from people's eyes when I'm weak, but I know You always watch me from a distance.. I want to keep strongly believing that the way You are directing me to is the best way You've chosen for me that I can only walk through..

New Beginning

So many things that happened in the beginning of this May make my world spinning upside down. But above of all, I really should thank Allah for all the trials He brought into my life, so that I can learn how to be more patient and get closer to Him. I always know, that He is all the places where I should run back to..

I am truly inspired with the words from sister Fairuz's blog post:
"When you give up something you love dearly for the sake of Allah (swt),
the Most Gracious, Most Merciful will indeed replace that which you have lost with something even better. something you can't even imagine. something so beautiful it makes you cry at the thought of how Generous our Lord is. Those who are patient will be rewarded, inshaAllah."
Well, she's right.. left what's supposed to be left behind, don't forget to breathe, life will still continue, life will still go on. We'll be fine. We have Him, our friends and family supporting us. Alhamdulillah. :)

Lesson learned.
I never thought before that our trust can be easily betrayed by people we care the most just for the sake of the inability to resist seduction of the potential others. That's insane. Totally can't be justified. But we're human after all, right? We forget, we make mistake, we neglect... sometimes. But there must be another new beginning to fix and improve ourselves moving towards better direction. Good people belong to good people, I believe that with no doubt.

Lesson learned.
Where there's hardship, there's ease. 

Lesson learned.
Family is the one who can truly understand you, they know what's good for you and what's not just in case you can't see things clearly.

Lesson learned.
Trials brought into our life are not here to fall us down, but He gives us trials to test the deepness of our faith. To know who we really are.

Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe" and they will not be tried? But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars.
Al-`Ankabut 2-3

From how we react to the trials, Allah will know what's hidden in our heart to the one that happened, the one that is happening, and the one that will happen. Trials, will give insight to the truest side of human being, are we faithful enough or not?

I'll be patient, I'll be sincere. I am genuinely ready to embrace a very new-never-too-late-beginning! :)

Not Again

Do you know that, sometime, there's a song out there that could perfectly picture a particular story in a phase of our life even before we recognize it does really exist when we've listened it for the first time? This one did well for me for now, but not so long again.

Come What May

Mayyyyyyyyy comessss?! Who screams like that? Meee! 

I am so excited yet a little bit scared, because in the end of this month I'll have to cope myself with the end of semester exams where all research assignments are due to. My team's researches mostly focus on the development of our campus's teaching hospital project.

But before, the annual top ten architect award ceremony night will be held in the second week! Always love the crowds and the preparation work. :D

And above of all, my family has arranged a very short trip to a place we've known for so long since it's the place my father was raised, but we haven't visited it for yearsss. I-CAN-NOT-WAIT!
