When September Ends

September month seems to be passing by a little too fast I feel. Yesterday seems like the beginning of the month and it is the end of the month already today. It feels THAT short! Perhaps the reason behind this feeling came from those continuous exams and assignments. I had my two weeks worth of holiday break due to raya celebration but datelines all due right after the holiday. All lined up, one after another. That calls for work during holiday -.- Nope, the line has not ended. Still have exam and assignment and presentation waiting. RaaawwrrRR. As they said, student's life will always be the best. So, let me "ENJOY" the excitement and fun (NOT) while at it. Nuff said. Here are just some shots throughout the whole month. A bit here and there :)

True 1Malaysia exists in Sabah

HOW many Malaysians have been to Sabah?

I have been to several cities like Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tawau and several other small towns several times and I always get the same feeling: people there are seriously united. They communicate with each other in Bahasa Malaysia, with a heavy accent ending with a “bah”. Even though they are Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans or others, they speak similarly. To those who have never set foot there, I suggest you plan a holiday there instead of to other countries and I can assure you it will be worthwhile.

Born in Penang, later educated in Kuala Lumpur and working in Johor Baru, I got used to the fact that if I wanted food, I will go to a “Mamak” restaurant, Malay restaurant or any fast food outlet. Chinese or Indian restaurants won’t cross my mind as the food there is not “halal”.

I could remember the very first time I went to Sabah, it was time for breakfast and my friend, a Sabahan and also a Muslim, brought me to this typical Chinese looking restaurant which we normally see in the peninsula. Over here, it is obvious that I, as a Muslim, won’t be able to eat the food there because of the “halal” factor. But to my surprise, the patrons there in that restaurant were mostly Muslims. The food served was normal “nasi lemak”. I was quite skeptical at first and when I tried to get an assurance from the owner himself, he proudly said: “We Sabahans understand each other well.”

Thinking that the morning scene in the Chinese restaurant was a coincidence, I suggested to have lunch in another Chinese restaurant. True enough, the scenario was the same: most of the patrons were Muslims.

At night, it was time for a “feel” of the night life in Tawau and we went to a popular “dangdut” outlet. Again, I was surprised to see many Chinese there. In Peninsular Malaysia, “dangdut” outlets are normally filled with Malays.

When it comes to food, Sabahans have shown us the true meaning of unity in terms of a simple meal. Whether it is breakfast, lunch, dinner or even supper, they are united as a people and they eat at a same table.
We sometimes just forget the basics of being a truly united nation.

It is so easy to slur another person, another religion or another race on various websites these days, but is this what we want to do as a responsible citizen?

I feel the way to understand 1Malaysia is by starting to look at how Sabahans live.

I am a proud to be a Sabahan ;)

Remember, remember, the 11th of September.

Weird Coincidences: 

1) New York City has 11 letters
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.
3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to
destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.
4) George W Bush has 11 letters.
5) The two twin towers make an “11″

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state.
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers.
6+5 = 11
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911.
9 + 1 + 1 = 11.

Sheer coincidence. .?! Read on and make up your own mind:
1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year.
Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.
Sheer coincidence. .?! Read on and make up your own mind: Now this is where things get totally eerie:
The most recognized symbol for the US,after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Koran, the Islamic holy book:
“For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace.”
That verse is number 9.11 of the Koran.
Still unconvinced about all of this..?! Try this
Open Microsoft Word and do the following (TRY THIS FOR REAL)
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.
2. Highlight the Q33 NY
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS 1.

I found this from another website and thought that this is rather interesting. You think? :P
