SSP : School Band and Wind Orchestra.

I'd always have fond memories and usually feel nostalgic whenever I see school band playing or marching...remembering own experiences with the rest of the band members, practising songs, marching in the hot sun, performing at events and competed in schools' competitions and I love it when we traveled on the bus in our yellow and blue uniforms, white boots, black caps, white gloves and all...

not forgetting, me and my dear friend completed the "set" with ponytails ..hehehe...

Anyway, in May I had the chance to go to the finale of Wind Orchestra among the boarding schools with some friends...all the 9 schools in the final were good, these 13 - 17 years old boys and girls really worked hard to reach this stage. I believe all of us were proud of them.

And I'm happy that my former school became the champion..yeay..yeay..


and also "Best Conductor" for this girl...(clap clap clap)

Listening "live" at Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) to these girls playing gave me goosebumps...

Here's the video/link from youtube (here) of them playing "Vesuvius" during the competition.

The girls are currently in Sydney Australia at the invitation of Australian International Music Festival(AIMF2013) for some performances and compete in the event between 7 -14th July 2013.

All the best to them..may they gain wonderful experiences there.

Virtues of Fasting

Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of God (pbuh), saying:

"Allah said 'Every action of the son of Adam is for him except fasting, for that is solely for Me. I give the reward for it. The fast is a shield."

"If one is fasting, he should not use foul language, raise his voice, or behave foolishly. If someone reviles him or fights with him, he should say, 'I am fasting,' twice."

"By the One in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, the [bad] breath of the one who is fasting is better in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection than the smell of musk."

"The one who is fasting is happy at two times: when he breaks his fast he is happy with it, and when he meets his Lord he will be happy that he has fasted."

(This is related by Ahmad, Muslim, and an-Nasa'i)

Ramadhan Mubarak to all my muslim relatives and friends wherever you are. May the blessings of Allah SWT be with you..May Allah SWT accept our ibadah and may we become better Muslims..amiin. .

My calender and "Aliens in d house"

I'm not sure if my boss is nervous or irritated whenever he sees me holding my desk calender these days... :-D ...

Recently he "caught" me holding one and asked whether I was planning another holiday,

mmmm... luckily then I could say truthfully that I was checking something that was work related...(but I did point out that my next leave would be for Eid celebration in few weeks time....hehe.)

Not phobia with calender I hope... haha...

Anyway...last weekend I was in my hometown for a short break before the fasting month..and one of the activities that my nieces did was playing dough.

Enjoy them! :-D

I said its "Alien" in our hometown.. a sweet looking one  :-)

Slightly angry looking errr..."Upin"

I love them all...thank you to my nieces..Ain, Sya and Balqees.
