Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim,


Allahumma Solli A'la Saiyidna Muhamad, Waa'la aa'li Saiyidna Muhamad.

رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

I hate schools (readers, please do not cultivate this negative feeling, it is indeed wrong), but I love learning. To learn, I discover to my delight, is easier by talking, reading and observing, which all leading to contemplating. But attending a lecture could be totally different from attending school. I used to be a truant student before, well, I will be more than understanding if my students skip classes in the future. If I ever teach.

I've read many books penned by Jeffrey Archer, the most beloved one is Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less. Genius, entertaining and truly wonderful. Lately I've been reading one of his collections of short stories, titled And Thereby Hangs a Tale. At first I couldn't comprehend his messages through the stories, is it skeptical? Or is it a praise for a humanity? I find it unsettling, but choose to ignore it nonetheless. This kind of stories used to drive me to the wall, feed my frenzy curiosity until I quench my thirst through googling it. But nowadays, I just suppress it, let it lingers longer in my mind. However, there is one particular tragic story that strikes a chord deep within my heart, because it is a true story. Caste-Off. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

The wind lady has stopped visiting us today. It feels strange, and the day has been somber again. But I'm off to Bowburn this late afternoon, insyaAllah. Scary name, isn't it? The only place where the rent is cheaper considerably in Durham, or perhaps in the entire UK.

The mega-protest in Egypt is getting worsen, with the ex-government-soon-to-be resorting to many sickening tactics to scare the civilians and the protesters, and justifying the future involvement of UN, World Bank and the USA (who else, then?). Mubarak's announcement to step down this September, promising the flourishing economy etc etc are a lie. Many people, I notice , always put their faiths on the politicians' words. Easily sway, aren't we? Let's be honest, shall we, the economic picture, especially the rosy ones, may not depict the real economy. Be wise.

I have a conviction on my methodology. Wow. I could never believe it that I am finally able to write that.

Must dash!
Love, always.
