younger guys versus older women

This isn't really some  revolutionary  topic with me. It's actually kind of old news *for those who knows me* in my own reality. The psyche of ordinary people is that, younger men = stupid ? immature? & older women = more experience? Lax? 

And here i thought when Obama won AGAIN this year, the world has taken a step forward. AND THEN; when Israel and Hamas agree to truce after eight days of attacks in which 162 Palestinians and five Israelis were killed, I THOUGHT we had taken another step forward. 

Apparently i was wrong. People are still as uncivilized and barbaric as we use to be, like in the  reigns of Romans where there were PEOPLE, and there were SLAVES. There was, ( still is) stigmatization back then. It is still here today. I HONESTLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR LABELS? SHOULD WE ALL BE WALKING AROUND WITH A BRAND TAG SEWN TO OUR BACKS THEN?

Can't people, EVER just be people?

I know, for some this might just be another petty issue & unimportant topic at times of crucial moments like today. But, isn't these small things, what makes us who we are. Our beliefs are in alignment to who we are. Indirectly a reflection of ourselves. 

People can go about talking about WORLD POLITICS, improving your IMAN or TAUHID; but if you cannot straighten out such a simple issue like this, then you are in deeper sh** than you thought you were. You can't just superficially dress a wound, if the cut is deep and infected. You need to prescribe some antibiotic (orally) kill all the organisms form inside. Let the wound heal, from the inside-out.  (the doctor  in me giving an analogy)

I know this is some LAME BLABBERING, probably the connection is far-fetched for some of you (LOL). But at the end of the day, it's AN ENORMOUS TRUTH THAT CANNOT BE REFUTED. We LABEL people everyday. 

Allah (SWT) says in Surat Al-Hujurat, "O Mankind! We have created you from a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is he who has most Taqwa among of you. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware." Noble Qur'an (49:13)

Allah stated; that we are all equal. 

(At the end of this; for those people out there who cannot understand why younger man marries older women, it's only because they are listening to what Allah is saying. Everyone is equal, OLD OR YOUNG- EXCEPT FOR THEIR TAQWA-so; WHY SHOULD IT MATTER to you?)

Wallahualam Bissawab.

The lap, before the final one.

As you obviously can see; I've pretty much forgotten all about my 2012's resolution to blog. *LOL*

Well, I passed my phase 3A final exams. (one check on my list) Today, i just finished my first (6 weeks) posting for phase 3B. We had 6 different specialties & i had to sit for an exam at every Friday for each week.  (specialty III; hematology, dermatology, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, palliative & complementary medicine)

At least i got some things on my list done. I went to Cambodia. RM3 (rural medical mobile mission RCMP) held this program called 'Cambodia Relief Mission'. It was a two weeks trip where we went to the rural area in Cambodia to provide medical aids & help increase public health awareness. (stuff like, personal-hygiene, prevention is better than cure, breast CA awareness) (one more check)

I also went to Royal Belum, Tasik Banding for social work with RM3. It was held in the villages of Indigenous people in that particular area. We also had medical check-ups & public health promotion there. (another check :) )

I dont have any pictures from Tasik Banding, but i do have some from Cambodia. Here's what we did;

blood pressure counter

teaching kids hand washing techniques tru colouring :) loads of fun

line up at registration counter

giving instruction to the translator (khmer language spoken there)

Finally; I've one last thing to announce. Haha; I've retired from debating. After Novice & PDO '12 this year, I decided that i haven't done may things, & uni years are running out short for me. 

So, for all of you out there, who are just like me; DON'T wait for the right time, JUST DO IT NOW. There's no such thing as the right time OR the right moment. Make the moment happen. Don;t be making so much damn excuses. 

This is it, the LAP, before the FINAL one.
