Training at AKRINE 23-24 January 2010

It has been a while since I last update my blog... a year! wow.

Anyhow one of my friend, Ikram commented that I should put up something regarding my recent training in Kuala Lumpur. So Ikram... here goes..
My training was different than any of my oversea training whereby I went there under my own expense..going alone.. and for Islamic Healing Practice particularly regarding ailments connected to jinn and withcraft.

I have been following a blog; - AKRINE (Akademi Rawatan Islam Nur Ehsan- run by Ustaz Majid) for quite a while and thus made a decision to go there for the 23-24 Jan training.

Its was quite a leap of faith to go there alone as I have never went to Kuang, Selangor. Only upon landing at KLIA around 10pm I received a sms from Ustaz Majid stating directions to go there.

Anyone interested to go there here is the exact copy of Ustaz Majid's sms to me. "Sampai KLIA, naik kete api ke KL SENTRAL. Pas tu naik komuter arah ke rawang, turun sg buloh. naik taxi ke akrine rm 12. LOT 2894, LRG BERINGIN, BT 17 KUANG. Msuk lrg beringin 2km, hga jumpa signboard akrine."

Along the way I simply put my trust & faith to Allah, as a lot can happen... To cut the story short, Allah made my journey easy.. got to the right commuter train, got out at the right place, got a taxi driver that knows where the place is..(actually he knew the other Healing practise 'Pusat Rawatan Islam Manarah' which is on the same road).

Reach there just before midnite (ikram, you might remember exactly?).. I'll continue my story another time but here are some of pictures of the training..

Who is the fairest of them all?

My wife always tease me that among my wife and my 3 kids, I am among the 'fairest' of them all.
ha ha ha.. Pictures below were taken just after I got back from my escapade at Batang Duri Temburong which makes me even more fairer as compared before.

Well.. what to do.. !! Anyway yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary (love you Sayang) and celebrated it with a dinner at Charcoal. hmm.. love those lamb shanks.. Time sure creeps in quite fast as now we have 3 kids under our belt.

May Allah continue to bless us. Amin..!

After a long hiatus....

Wow.. was it that long that I didn't blog or even read others..?!!!

It was such a frantic period of my life so far,..starting off with my dearest friend, Jimi: Pg Hj Abdul Azmi, who was hospitalised & sedated for nearly a week end of last February.

It was such a shock to me and actually disbelieved when my fren Zul told me about Jimi. Visiting him while he was still unconscious, I could only offer my prayers for his speedy recovery. Alas, Allah has granted him recovery and he was soon out and about. Alhamdulillah...

In the midst of all that, I have just joined a course organised by Darusysyifa' Warrafahah (an association closely linked with Darusyifa Malaysia) teaching Islamic healing practises. I was not just a participant but also the videographer. The whole course span for about 4 to 5 months.

Of course, office work put a great weight in limiting/stopping me from blogging. This was added by my company decision to move/swap position with another senior manager with a completely different portfolio or technical know-how. Wish me luck....

The biggest impact felt was from my subordinates. Sorry guys.. it has been great working closely with you all. Still there was a huge chunk of my previous work need to be given to the customer thus I am essentially doing two jobs until my other collegues can get a rein over it.

Well, it would be boring to read my blog if theres no pictures in it. Thus here are some pictures taken during my 3 days (10 to 12 April) in Batang Duri Outward Bound Brunei Darussalam. It was a mix group of AiTi, TelBru & Alif Technologies.

The course was beyong expectation.. no kidding. ('Macam kan mati, rasanya' - Bruneian expression)

But overall it was enjoyable. And the funny thing is.. if my company organises another one, I surely would join again!! ('Nda jareh')

Grinning to go for 2nd round.. siok eh. Note: Current weight 80.5kg

'Confidence drop'. This was done before we did the flying-fox.

Pump-up to go for the trekking.

All smileys before the trek.

Doa before the trekking.

Was still able to smile...

FYI the trekking took 5hours. My back pack was around 20kg & I nearly 'kepisan'. This was the most grueling experience ever..

After camping in the wild, next day we prepared to go for kayaking (another 3hours experience). Unfortunately no one bring a water-proof camera. :(

On our way back to BSB. Note: Current weight 78kg.

Lady at the gate: B&W rendition

Old News: partial eclipse

On the 26th January 2009, me, my wife and Raudhah were eating out at KFC Yayasan whereby I noticed quite a number of people gathering just outside on the footstep. Luckily a fren of my wife mentioned that there will be a partial eclipse happening. Duhh..! Been busy with work that I miss on whats happening. Luckily I brought along my brand new Camera.. hehe.

Captured a few photos of the small event.

An interviewer and interviewee on the steps of Yayasan

FYI those two guys did not turn into those two eggs. (Eggs left by the man without the cap). I overheard people mentioning that eggs would rotate by itself when there is an eclipse. Beats me..

As you can see the bloke really did not turn into an egg. hehe.. RTB also there to capture the event.

The special telescope placed inside the tent as it was still raining.

Leaflets regarding the eclipse were distributed. Made a new friend 'Sulaiman from Fire & Rescue unit'

The crowds..

Sorry dude.. I also could hardly see any silhouette of the eclipse as the sky was still gloomy.

I'm not sure whether you could get any photo of the eclipse using that camera.

At last I could see the partial eclipse. Well.. its actually a computer simulated model on what you should actually see.

At the end, it did not turn out as good as I expected or maybe I wasn't even expecting it at all as it was just another outing with my family. Sorry Sayang as you have to go around shopping without me at Yayasan with Raudhah.

Sarah Najihah Binti Haji Emran

It has been a while since I have not been back to KB. I have met my dad last night and he inquired about my little ones. That reminds me that so far only my youngest has not been featured in my blog, thus here is the photo of her.
