sekadar pendapat

Luahan pendapat untuk PBT dan YB Lipis:

Dirasakan tiba masanya warga Lipis lebih menjurus kearah mesra seni.Terutama bagi mereka yang bertangungjawab terhadap pembangunan dan kemajuan bandar ini.

Definisi seni yang saya maksudkan bukan sekadar berligar dan terhad kepada pertandingan nyanyian karaoke sahaja. Kena lebih jauh dan luas kefahamannya. Lebih menjurus kepada FINE ART(Seni Halus).

Segala pembangunan yang berlandaskan Material semata hasilannya menjadi hambar dan tidak sempurna. Jauh sekali mendatangkan kepuasan serta ketenangan.lazimnya hasilan itu menjadi sangat beku dan membosankan.Tidak ada kesan memuaskan, paling malang lagi ianya akan mendatangkan pembaziran dan kerugian.

Langkah mendekati Seni yang dimaksudkan bukan lah sukar. Saranan saya,sebagaimana setiap tahun ada acara Karnival Lipis, apa salahnya cuba adakan pula minggu seni Lipis umpamanya.

Pengisiannya boleh lah sama2 difikirkan. Sebagai contoh:
1) Pendedahan seni hiasan laman.
2)Melukis landskap lipis
3)Filem pendek anak2 Lipis.
4)Bengkel/forum kehijaun alamsekitar dan sejarah lipis...dan sebagainya.

My 2cents...

angry bird

Since that time, over 12 million copies of the game have been purchased from Apple's App Store, which has prompted the company to design versions for other touchscreen-basedsmartphones, such as those using the Android operating system, among others.

Jika kamu inginkan suasana sebegini kamu perlu menempuh lima buah kampung orang asli. Perjalanannya pula akan memakan masa selama dua jam (45km dari Lipis) dan melalui jalan tanah merah. Jika hari hujan ia akan memakan masa yang lebih lama, lima hingga enam jam! Apa macam. Ada berani? Kalau tak berani mandi je air Sg.Jelai yang semakin keruh atau air paip kat rumah...

break your fast on dates

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is reported to have said: "if anyone of you is fasting, let him break his fast with dates. In case he does not have them, then with water. Verily water is a purifier."

ramadhan 2011

Today is the 1st ramadhan for this year. Ramadan 2011 is the Islamic month of fasting, in which Muslims around the world observe Puasa (Fasting) from dawn to sunset, which means that every day during this month, Muslims spend the daylight hours in a complete fast, refraining from eating, drinking, that is in excess or ill-natured. Because of that, Ramadhan 2011 is also referred to as Fasting Month 2011, or Puasa 2011.

I would like to wish all muslim friends a happy ramadhan. May the guidance and blessings of Allah be with you and your family.

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.
I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called "Yellow".
So then I took my turn,
Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all "Yellow."... coldplay

the king of fruits

Durians are widely known as the king of fruits because of their distinctive large size, unique odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. Some people say that the smell of durians are very pungent. But for me they have fragrant smell.

If you come to Kuala Lipis right now, durians are sold everywhere. Durians season is coming to our town. Durian dah berbuoh!!

catch the rainbow

Location: Terenggun

when i see a rainbow it reminds me about this song...

"When evening falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can't see
Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder
But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me come the dawn
Come the dawn"
(a song by - Rainbow)

morning has broken

Lipis morning sky @ 730 am

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day
- Cat Stevens/ Yusuf Islam
