Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for stilling in my pain but for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not look for allies in life battlefield but to my own strength.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom.
Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone;
But let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.

Rabindranath Tagore

Cigarette Paper Propeller - Amazing! - The best home videos are here

I first learned this trick from Avner Eisenberg at The Celebration Barn Theatre. Later I realised that it is quite economical to use this when interacting with the audience rather than twisting the baloon animals. I am not really keen with animal balloons because it will create queues rather than interactions. With this simple and cheap cigarette paper I can interact with 50 people with just RM1.20 ( I pack of ZigZag paper cost about RM1.20 at newsagents.

SMS from Mak

My mom just learnt how to use SMS.

Imagine my horror when she SMS me this few days ago,

"Mak nak buat sepat"

aaaaa? I called her and asked what she really meant by the SMS,

and she just said,

" Ooo.mak nak buat cermin mata.. Dah rabun!"

And the other day, another SMS sent shock to my heart,


OK I get it. I will get VCD of Mukhsin once it will be on the market and send it to her pronto by Poslaju as promised.

Yesterday, she sent to my brother in UITM Seri Iskandar who was spending his weekend in KL this message,

" Pukul berapa flight balik?"

Even though we knew well enough there's no such airlines flying to Manjung for that matter.

Aduhai Mak..........

Belasungkawa: Nazrah's mom

Ican't help to control my tears when reciting this yesterday.

"Ya Allah! Ampunilah dia dan kasihanilah dia dan sejahterakanlah serta ampunilah dosa kesalahan dia. Dan muliakanlah kedatangannya dan luaskanlah tempat masuknya (kuburnya) dan bersihkanlah dia dengan air salju dan embun, bersihkanlah dia dari segala dosa dan sebagaimana kain putih yang bersih dari segala kotoran dan gantikanlah baginya rumah yang lebih baik dari rumahnya dan gantikanlah isteri yang lebih baik dari isterinya dan gantikanlah keluarga yang lebih dari keluarganya dan peliharalah (hindarkanlah) dia dari seksa kubur dan seksa
