"'s the moon (don't have to tell). captured from the top of a ferry...night breeze swept by, leaving the coldness behind. nah-this capture is worthy~Subhanallah. (not feeling cold anymore).

found this

this philosophy: sharing ur feelings especially the bad ones with others shows that you are strong because you do not want to keep it to yourself, as it will damage your emotion even more




starting new. i've lost all my older posts, i have accepted the fact and i will not turn back. okay let's see..

here's something...

a friend said, "our past influences who we are today." she wiggled her fingers few times (i'm not sure why she did that) and continue, "i mean our personality". and i replied "yeap, true!" 

varied personality
varied level of empathy

because we are human beings. and Allah has created us that way. be grateful. wisdom is always there.



here's a question to ponder on,

"Do introverts deserve discrimination from extroverts??"

sounds like an  i-don't-have-time-for-this kind of question but please keep on reading and you'll see the impact it,insyaAllah.

let's define...
introvert = a quiet person who is more interested in their own thoughts and feelings than in        spending time with other people

extrovert = a lively and confident person who enjoys being with other people

(taken from Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary-must state the source,huu~)

Well,here's a story for you guys...

i went to visit a friend today. She's a close friend of mine. Beware, she's a brilliant figure! She shared with me something that should not happen to her as an introvert.Lemme call her as "SHE",yeah2...

"Last year,at our english camp...i really had a rough time,"she said calmly while stroking her favourite novel. i studied her face to find any streak of emotions but found nothing. "well...i think you have something to share,please do so," i gave her a smile, hoping she woud spill everything out. She adjusted her sitting position and breathed heavily. "'s like this, you know that i'm an introvert,right?"i nodded immediately."you remembered they separated us in many groups?"then she paused. Looking down at the floor,still holding the novel. Really, the floor shined as if someone had just mopped the whole room, but i can't smell any detergent aroma. Perhaps they used brands i never have known...ugh! why am i thinking about detergents??where am i just now? Okay2...then i nodded before i said, "yep, they sure, whats the juicy part?" i felt sorry for urging her but i couldn't resist the curiosity that was swirling vigorously in me. "my groupmates...all of them are outspoken, sociable,i'm kinda sinking down a deep hole when i'm with them."she explained. "Real introverts,huh?" i provoked. "yeah, i didn't really mind them, i did my part as a team member but when 'it' happens, i really have a hard time to accept it you know,"again,she adjusted her sitting position. She must be so affected by this particular event. Yeah, it was shown on her face now. "something bad must had happened,yes?"i searched for shines of joy in her eyes but it's cloudy inside there. She nodded quickly and said, "one of my group members said something like, 'she's so quiet! how is she going to be a teacher later? just walk into class, ask students to open their books and stay quiet again!,' and then all my groupmates joined him laughing out loud .."She finished the story with a long exhale of carbon dioxide (duh~)...she was affected, deeply affected. The moment of humiliation and embarassment. Who could have tolerated that kind of talk? She's strong, she just walked away from the crowd without saying a word. She knew, deep inside her, there is nothing wrong of being an introvert.

So, whats the answer for the question above?

everyone  deserves a space,
everyone deserves to be themselves...
mind other's feeling...
empathy helps every soul to live...




Silence doesn't necessarily denotes that one is stupid. sometimes a person who chooses to stay silent is actually a thinker, his/her mind is busier than the mind of those who speaks a lot, talk more and think less. and that doesn't necessarily mean that the person who talks a lot is a brainiac. when the person who's been thinking speaks, it could cause the brainiac's jaw to drop open. Moderation is in need. (^_^)

who's the winner? quite upset. western perspective-prove yourself. eastern perspective-just stay consistent,go with the flow, Allah loves me.

hey3! get up and swayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy~okay.

collected data for my first week-oh yeah! oh yeah! drum rollssss enthusiatic, outspoken, learning in context, casualties and relaxation. 

i had fun time with children today. theory has been proven-casualties and relaxation swiped  boredom away.mum always practises that,go mak!! yeah i indulged into their world through drawings. they draw the world which exist in their minds, ouh it is the world we adults have left for a loooooong time. tsk...childhood is never a regret. i cherished mine though.

Besides, it's a channel for their imaginations to communicate to us~plus, they loved to talk a lot and explained their little figures one by one in their masterpieces (prompt with questions if you want more explanation). hey2 did i say masterpieces? yes they 'are'! not 'were' materpieces---because i just love their 'hands on' proofs or little hands artwork. their creativity will develop if their natural skills and talent are tapped, supported, scaffold...which are=creativity, through the strategy of combining their imagination+our scaffolding and time and patience = children will develop their problem solving skills, insyaAllah)

-one example-Irfan had finished his drawing and seemed to get bored. So i asked Safi to teach him about the "1,2 som" game.(you know that game don't you?).Safi loves that game as well. hahah simple game but could be fun if carried out in a small group with small children as their are sooooooo easily distracted by EVERYTHING around them (me too). when Irfan had understood about the rules, they started to play, chanting "1,2 som! 1,2 som!",laughing hard together. then, there was this great moment where Safi had won because she used the 'bird' sign instead of Irfan who used "water". Because of creativity, he had proven his problem solving skill by saying, "but the water can swallow you!tsunami woahhhhh" (along with facial expression). 

so who wins, then?
