Ants OR Dinosaurs



Some facts on Ants & Dinosaurs (cut & paste) LOL!:

1.  Ants - Like all insects, ants have six legs. Each leg has three joints. The legs of the ant are very strong so they can run very quickly. If a man could run as fast for his size as an ant can, he could run as fast as a racehorse. Ants can lift 20 times their own body weight. An ant brain has about 250 000 brain cells. A human brain has 10,000 million so a colony of 40,000 ants has collectively the same size brain as a human.

2.  Dinosaurs - Dinosaurs were reptiles and most dinosaurs hatched from eggs.  The term dinosaur (terrible lizard) was coined by the English anatomist Sir Richard Owen in 1842. No one knows how the dinosaurs became extinct or even if they are extinct, but there are many interesting theories


Good day!  Good day!  Good day!  
ALL IS WELL (I hope)...I ran out of 'How I Met Your Mother' series...God!  I love that sitcom!!! Therefore, I decided to do some blogging this afternoon...Just to keep my rusty brain going...I need to be energetic!  I choose to be energetic and enthusiastic instead of being some lumpy-good-for-nothing-bummer!  As usual...I'll write things that are not in the books...I'll simply write anything that comes across this 'critical-thinking' head of mine...So, here it is...this entry is about THE ANTS & DINOSAURS IN THE WORKPLACE...[one of my favorite chatting topic with my late father...that old chap simply worshiped his job so much... (I miss u ayah)]

OK PEOPLE!  It's all about making choices...You can either be the ANTS or you can be the DINOSAURS at your workplace.  Ants are quick, strong, brainy and cooperative.  Whereas, dinosaurs are untrustworthy (because they're lizards - check out the Al-Quran on why lizards are untrustworthy), ugly, terrible, violent, cruel and ancient!  It's a good thing that dinosaurs are extinct...

So, what's your choice?  Quite recently, while I was driving to work, I listened to my favorite radio channel, IKIMfm.  Some ustaz (Sorry, I can't recall his name & the title of his motivational talk that morning) BUT I remember him talking about 'Making Choices At The Workplace'...bla bla bla...It goes something like this ~ You can choose to be successful or you can choose failure.  You can choose to be highly motivated or lazy instead.  You can choose to be honest or otherwise.  You can choose to be punctual (in meeting deadlines) or procrastinate.  He pointed out so many choices of various aspects in working life.  What attracted me most was this quote "Victory belongs to only those with perseverance"...It's no wonder stories about 'ants' exist in the Al-Quran...Ants persevere indeed! The truth is, the choice is in your own hands...right peeps?
This brings me to another issue at the workplace ~ The issue of CAMP BUILDING!  Well you know...the POSITIVE CAMP Vs the NEGATIVE CAMP.  O please!  Tell me all about it (Eyes rolling up)!  I'm so sick and tired of this!  Day in, day out!  It's the same OLD story... Therefore, I just stick to my principle!  I take pride in what I do.  I do what I'm paid for.  I respect the rules and regulations.  I try my best not to break any rule.  I prefer to be the subservient employee rather than creating headaches to my superior.  I'm not so good at making friends (I really mean, TRUE FRIENDS), so I don't make enemies, etc. etc.  AND I TRY MY BEST TO BE THE ANTS at my workplace :D   (Where are the emoticons??? I need a smiley here!!)

All in all, our workplace isn't the high school...SO PLEEEASE...please wear the right 'thinking hat'.  As for me, my TWENTY years of working experience has taught me to be VERY CAREFUL with LONERS, as well as the ALL-ROUNDERS at my workplace. They are either people with LOW SELF-ESTEEM or 'SELF-RIGHTEOUS plus MANIPULATIVE'. After all these years, I learned that ALL-ROUNDERS are usually bubbly and harmless.  On the other hand, time has taught me to be EXTRA CAREFUL with those 'SELF-RIGHTEOUS-MANIPULATIVE-LONERS' at the workplace BECAUSE they are extremely good at seeking sympathy and once you fall for that, NEXT comes the MANIPULATION and that's definite! Muahahahahahaha! (Evil laugh!) Don't ask me why they're like that because I don't have the answer to that, ahaks!  

That's all for today, I hope you enjoyed reading this entry and to all my Business Communication students, I hope u remember what I wrote in this entry once u venture into  the cruel working world.  Don't be the dinosaurs...BE THE ANTS!  Insya Allah, SELAMAT DUNIA AKHIRAT....Adios and happy working!!!

ASSALAMUALAIKUM & Good Day to my dear readers...

Now, what could be the story this time?  Money?  Nope...I'm just going to make this one short as my mind is practically blank after a long day of marking essays and some peek-a-boo with my Facebook wall.  Today, I just like to touch on a very serious matter ~ DEATH!  Death is a certainty.  No one escapes death once the time comes.  "To Allah (the Almighty) we belong and to him we return" (Holy Quran 2:156).  No one knows for sure of the 'Life After Death' but we can always study the Al-Quran and hadiths to learn about it.  However, before I go further on this matter, I'd like to emphasize that DEATH DOES NOT FALL IN THE JURISDICTION OF SCIENCE.  So, to those atheist scientists out there, if you wanna challenge this story with science, you may leave my blog.  But why that title? Why THE WALLET?  Here's the story...

A few months ago, my husband told me that his colleague had to run to her hometown to attend a funeral.  At that funeral in her hometown, an eye-opening-reminder incident took place right after the corpse was placed in the grave and engulfed with earth again (Muslims belong to the earth)...Suddenly, one pakcik (old man) realized that his wallet went missing.  They searched the entire graveyard to no avail.  Therefore, they concluded that the wallet must have fell into the grave hole while placing the body in the liang lahad...(Sorry, I don't have time to find the English word for liang lahad)

After a short discussion with the Pak Imam, they decided to dig the grave again and look for the wallet.  So they dug the grave and found the wallet.  However, the wallet was not the only thing they found.  To their surprise, they saw the corpse which was initially properly covered with white cloth was already rotting within less than 30 minutes.  The white cloth was already off the body and they discovered ugly bruises on the body.  The body was badly wounded with traces of being terribly beaten and slashed... Those who witnessed were in awe ... They were speechless ... none could say anything, not even a word... They quickly shovel the soil back into the grave and left without even reading the Talkin ...

I do not know that man who died that day... neither do my husband.  I do not know if he was a bad man or not.  However, I came to a conclusion that Allah has chosen those people to witness that incident... Not to shame the dead, but to share this story that proves 'death is indeed certain' and 'the life after death is true'.  No one escapes the torture in the grave...

What confront men after death?  What will become of him in the grave?  Some people think that it's not our business but it is all written in the Al-Quran.  Therefore, it is our business.  Our job is to ensure that we are prepared to face it... When a man dies, three things will follow him to the grave - HIS WEALTH, HIS FAMILY AND HIS GOOD DEEDS BUT ONLY ONE WILL STAY WITH HIM IN THE GRAVE, THE GOOD DEEDS...


I apologize for my terrible English...I wish I could write better but my language has become so rusty :(
