~A touching story~

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.”

I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him.

He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, “Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives.”

He looked at me and said, “Hey thanks!” There was a big smile on his face.

It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.

We talked all the way home, and I carried his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play football on Saturday with me and my friends. He said yes. We hung all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him. And my friends thought the same of him.

Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.

I stopped him and said, “Damn boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!” He just laughed and handed me half the books.

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors, began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship.

Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak.

Graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than me and all the girls loved him! Boy, sometimes I was jealous.

Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, “Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!” He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. “Thanks,” he said. As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began.

“Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach…but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.

I am going to tell you a story.” I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met.

He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn’t have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. “Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.” I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize it’s depth.

Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture you can change a person’s life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each other’s lives to impact one another in some way.

Amazing Sabah!!! ~The Tip of Borneo @ Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, Kudat part 1~


As salam....kesinambungan cerita 2 tahun sudah.....*bapak lama*


Selepas meneroka Tempat di Kundasang War Memorial, kami menuju ke Kudat plak. Kali ni memang unplanned nak ke sana.

Sebelum bergerak ke Kudat, kami menyinggah dahulu untuk membeli barangan sebagai cendaramata berupa sayur-sayuran  untuk keluarga di kampung. Tak semena-mena, aku mendapat 3 kuntum bunga rose. Auuwwww… very rare ok! Anyway, I love it so much.

Kundasang

Selepas membeli barang, kami singgah lagi ke Kinabalu Park untuk bergambar seketika. Kira tempat ni memang  fav kami semua la…


Kinabalu Park



Separuh perjalanan menuruni kawasan pergunungan, kami mengambil jalan menuju ke Kota Belud. Ambil simpang ke kanan selepas Pekan Nabalu. Kiranya jalan shortcut ke Kota Belud –Ranau yang mana kami tak lalu dah Tamparuli. Kira kami gamble ajelah menggunakan jalan ni. Sepanjang perjalanan, pemandangan semuanya menghijau kerana landskapnya berlatar belakangkan hutan. Jalan lebih kurang macam nak ke Kundasang, naik turun bukit dan pastinya sunyi sepi. Cuma sesekali je selisih jalan dengan kenderaan lain. Kakak ipar dan keluarga sudah pun sama-sama menuju ke Kota Belud sebagai tempat kami check point untuk bertemu sebelum kami menuju ke Kudat.


Cuma, ada kisah yang agak kelakar la sebelum kami sampai ke Kota Belud ni. Lebih kurang 30km sebelum kami sampai, tetiba terdapat ada sebuah baut yang agak besar di tengah-tengah. Kami berasa agak keliru jugalah samada nak ikut jalan ke kiri atau kanan. Batu tu betul² berada di tengah². Nak kata ada papan tanda, takdelah pula. Nak sms akak ipar nak bertanya arah, ‘service not available’ la plak. Masa tu pula tiada rangkaian. Hampir setengah jam tau kami menunggu di situ kalau² ada orang tempatan ke atau kenderaan lain yang lalu di situ.

ada batu tengah² tu..............


Tetiba, datang  sebuah kereta…berdesup meninggalkan kami. Tak sempat tau nak berhentikan kereta tu. Sudahnya, aku suruh je en. Syawal ikut laluan di sebelah kiri. Tawakal ajelah. Kalau salah, kira patah balik amik laluan di sebelah kanan la plak. Sebaik sahaja kami melepasi batu besau tersebut, masing² dah tepuk kepala dan gelak. Aduyai……rupanya amik jalan kiri ke kanan, akan bertembung menjadi satu jalan. Iskkk…iskkkk…Setengah jam masa terbuang macam tu aje. Dah la kawasan hutan. Tup-tup, sms masuk bertalu²… “ di mana kamu…kami sudah sampai ani..”…..kikikiki…jawapan standard en Syawal,
 “ kami otw”……

Kota Belud 


Sesampai di tempat pertemuan di Kota Belud, kami mencari kedai makanan untuk mengisi perut dahulu. Lapar sudah. Waktu pun dah agak petang kami sampai dalam pukul 3 lebih. Perjalanan masih jauh lagi nak ke Kudat ni.


makan makan di Kota Belud

Seusai mengisi perut, kami meneruskan perjalanan menuju ke Kudat. Kudat, here we come!!! Chewah…..*poyo*

Kaedah Menyimpan Wang Dengan Jayanya...yeay


Assalamualaikum Semua....


Ramai orang merungut tahun 2014 ni banyak sangat barang² naik...Sampai satu tahap, silap² darah tinggi pun boleh jadi naik....(yang tak bestnya, jadi orang perempun ni....berat je tak turun²..susah bebeno...kikiki).


So, nak share satu tips kaedah menyimpan wang.....Kira macam mitos menabung duit sejak kecikla ni...opsss... Tapi boleh diterima pakai jika dipraktikkan untuk simpanan anak². ^_^

Kaedah ni aku amik dari blog lifeasyouliveit. Memang sangat menarik dan kreatif. Sebab kaedah yang digunakan adalah menyimpan mengikut bilangan minggu dalam setahun. Bak kata orang² tua, simpan sikit² lama² jadi bukit.

simpanan wang


Bermula dengan seringgit, akhir tahun boleh capai sehingga RM1378. Mungkin sesetengah orang, jumlah ni takdelah banyak sangat tapi siapa tahu..? Mungkin boleh jadi sebagai pembakar semangat untuk mendapatkan barang idaman?Atau untuk pergi melancong/bercuti? Bayar roadtax kereta ker kan..?

Atau, siapa antara kita yang selalu gagal untuk menyimpan...? Mungkin nak simpan sebulan seratus agak payah.....Aku rasa kaedah ni simple dan senang...Cuma kena tepuk dada tanya iman....


Ok, selamat menabung semua.... ^___^ . Jadikan ini salah satu azam untuk mengukuhkan ekonomi poket sendiri.....Masih belum terlambat untuk memulakan tabungan......


ppssttt.... boleh juga kaedah ini diterapkan untuk anak² kita (amaun mungkin boleh dikurangkan separuh ataupun suku dariapda jumlah di atas)...Didik mereka untuk menabung sejak kecik lagi........
