BELUM SAMPAI MASANYA

Alhamdulillah, pagi tadi seusai daku menunaikan solat Dhuha, aku memanjatkan doa yang telah diajarkan di dalam mana2 buku Solat Sunat.

"Ya Allah bahawasanya waktu Dhuha itu adalah waktu dhuhaMu,kecantikan itu adalah kecantikanMu, keindahan itu adalah keindahanMU, kekuatan itu adalah kekuatanMu, kekuasaan itu adalah KekuasaanMu dan perlindungan itu adalah perlindunganMu. Ya Allah jika rezekiku masih di atas langit,turunkanlah, jika rezekiku di dalam bumi, keluarkanlah, jika rezekiku sukar,mudahkanlah,jika ia dari sumber yang haram maka sucikanlah,dan jika ia masih jauh dekatkanlah. Berkat waktu dhuhaMu, KeagunganMu, KeindahanMu, KekuatanMu, dan KekuasaanMu, limpah dan kurniakanlah kepada hamba-hambaMu." AMIIIINNNN

Tangga gaji kami T5. Tangga gaji mereka T9.

Gred gaji kami 1-3. Gred gaji mereka 1-5.

Aku stress, kata suamiku. Ye ke?

"If you want to talk to Allah, pray to Allah. If you want answers from Allah, read the Quran.

"Bismillahirrahmanirrahim....

"Katakanlah (wahai Muhammad): Sesungguhnya Tuhanku memewahkan rezeki bagi sesiapa yang dikehendakiNya diantara hamba-hambaNya, dan Ia juga yang menyempitkan baginya dan apa sahaja yang kamu dermakan maka Allah akan menggantikannya dan Dialah jua sebaik-baik Pemberi rezeki". Saba' 34:39

"Apa sahaja yang dibukakan Allah kepada manusia daripada sesuatu rahmat, maka tidak ada yang dapat menahan baginya; dan apa sahaja yang ditahan-Nya (Allah), maka tidak yang dapat melepaskan baginya sesudah itu. Dan Dia (Allah) adalah al-‘Aziz (Maha Perkasa), lagi al-Hakim (Maha Bijaksana). Wahai manusia! Ingatlah akan nikmat Allah kepadamu. Adakah pencipta selain Allah yang memberikan rezeki kepada kamu dari langit dan bumi? Tidak ada Ilah (Tuhan) selain Dia (Allah), maka bagaimanakah kamu dipalingkan?" Al Faathir 35: 2-3

SUBHANALLAH... ALHAMDULILLAH... ALLAHUAKBAR... ASTAGHFIRULLAH...

A SHORT HOLIDAY IN PORT DICKSON

Alhamdulillah,
Longing for spending the nights in a hotel and also spending some valuable time with the kids was granted by Allah SWT when my husband had to go for a conference at Port Dickson. Apart from "balik kampuang AtokNenek", we went to several attractive places...

1. PD Ostrich Showfarm
2. Muzium Tentera Darat
3. Shopping mall (TH value? forgot the name lor!)
4. The beach
5. The swimming pool
6. Cowboy place

Thanks to my husband for letting us to explore PD while he had to go for the boring conference. hehe

Wish to have the next vacation soon...

Last stop before we end our short holiday was Sek Men Maaahad Hamidiah Kajang.
Congrats to my little sister for getting 8A and 1B for her PMR.
You did great!
Syukur Alhamdulillah and be grateful for what you have and had gained...
He knows BEST!

THESIS TEMPLATE WORKSHOP

Alhamdulilllah,

After I submitted my final draft thesis for correction to my main supervisor, I managed to handle a workshop and introduced to them "an easy semi automated thesis template intergrated with IIUM thesis manual (beta version)". I found it very difficult for me to explain my work. Oh my! How can I be a good lecturer if I'm not good at lecturing? How can I present my research to the Kulliyyah and (lucky for us not having any viva, but if i do, how can I face that situation?)

Rabbish rahli sodri wayassir li amri...

I'm not sure whether they could understand my talk or not.

But the feedbacks were:
"If I need help, can I see you?"
"Good work Cikgu! Did you learn how to do the template by yourself or did you go for a workshop?"
"If I've already written my chapters, should I use the template in the chapters first and then combine it in the final template or the other way round?"

Guess I did a good job as my husband told me.

Things to be improved:
1. Need to have an example of a chapter with tables and figures for the students to work on.
2. Email the dropbox, the template and the chapters before coming to the workshop.
3. Only interested people are invited.
4. We need to charge them later, and further plans can't be written in this blog. hehe

Sharing is caring.
La yuhibbu ahadukum hatta yuhibba li akhiki ma yuhibbu li nafsih.

May Allah accept the sharing as one of our good deeds. Amiiiin.

CONFERENCE

Alhamdulillah,

I went to a conference yesterday and today.
It was inspiring to listen and watched how some of the presenters were very passionate of what they are doing and at the same time made their researches possible for the sake of producing products and add new knowledge to the ummah. Subhanallah.

The conclusions that I learned from this conference are:
  1. Be passionate of what you are doing.
  2. Be confident.
  3. Nobody know what you are doing and cannot understand what you are telling on the stage, so, bring the difficult terms into layman for easier understanding.
  4. The research that you are doing must be very interesting to allow the audience would pay their best attention during your presentation, i.e breastfeeding, breech delivery, recitation of Yaasin in ICU patients, nutrition and pregnancy and obesity.
  5. If the research can produce a product and then be commercialized or a technique that benefits the people, the research has very good impact towards the audiences.
  6. Nobody is perfect, accept their defects.
  7. The presentation would be better if the slides has dark background and white fonts/the other way round and only 2-3 short sentences in each slides
  8. Have more pictures and describe the pictures instead of having long sentences written on the slides
  9. Have videos, that'll be very interesting
  10. For my next presentation, I think I should have:
  • 1 slide of title
  • 1 slide for lit review
  • 1 slide of problem statement
  • 1 slide of research question and research hypothesis
  • 1 slide of methodology, best to show in flowchart
  • slide of results should be only graphs and pictures. The explanation of results and discussion no need to write on the slides, instead give them at your best speech!!! (haha, can I do it???) While presenting this, make sure to point to the graphs so that people can understand the graphs that we already put up on the slides.
  • 1 slide of limitation
  • 1 slide of conclusion
  • 1 slide of recommendation

Tadaaaa.... Hopefully the presentation will not be next week! haha


  • 1 slide of

AURAT

Allahuakbar...

People think that I'm ex IIUM.
Why?
Because of "tudung besar" that I'm wearing.
Not up to date fashion.
Still wearing the old tudung.
haha.

I wanted to wear the tudung with pins, the thing is my pins are gone...

I tried wearing the tudung with awning, current fashion, but I feel strangled with the tight tudung around my neck.

Or is it just what I feel people might think of me?

I should be afraid of what Allah thinks of me... right?

Well, that's not very easy in this world of fashion...

But insyaAllah it can be done. :)

3 SUPERVISORS

Assalamualaikum,
Last week, had gotten comments from my main supervisor.
She just corrected typo grammatical errors.
So just do correction to make my thesis more presentable.

Today, received comments from my lab supervisor.
So many comments to be swallowed.
So many improvements need to be done.
So many corrections to be corrected.
SubhanalLah..

O Allah...
Please Allah strengthen my body and soul to do my very best.
To produce my FIRST THESIS ever in my life!

When will I be getting comments from my idea provider supervisor, the last supervisor?

Oh Allah, please put me in the place that I'll be able to handle.

Please Allah, help me to accept criticsm because they are for me to make the best out of myself. Amiin.


p/s:I'm not strong to accept critics. It makes me so scared because I did so many mistakes. :( But, it's the time for me to change in this sacred month of Muharram 1433H! InsyaAllah. I can accept critics....
