Cuti ke?

Assalamualaikum WBT

Dah lama jugak ye tak update blog ni. Dah 2 minggu cuti berlalu, maknanya dah 2 minggu jugak aku stay kat kampus ni tyme cuti. Apa yang aku wat kat kampus time cuti-cuti nih. Orang lain sibuk nak balik, aku nak pulak stay kat kampus nih. Huk3... Nak tahu sebabnya? Sebabnya... aku kerja part tyme. Hik3. Saje curi sikit masa yang terluang tyme cuti nih untuk buat sesuatu yang bermanfaat untuk diri aku. Aku kira aku wat part time nih untuk cari pengalaman je. Tak lebih dari itu. Dan sekarang aku paham apa yang orang perasaan orang yang bekerja. Macam-macam benda yang aku lalui, pelajari sepanjang aku bekerja. Tak susah nak kerja, tapi nak cemerlang dalam kerja memerlukan banyak pengorbanan. Penat. Ungkapan yang selalu terpacul dari mulut aku tyme kerja. Tapi nak wat camne, itulah hakikat dia. Tu aku tak try lagi membanting tulang kat tengah sawah padi tengah-tengah matahari. Kalau korang betul-betul nak kenal dunia luar, cubalah kerja kalau-kalau ada masa. Aku dah paham dah kenapa orang cakap tyme belajar lagi best dari tyme dah kerja. Huhuhu. Pasni aku kena njoy n bersungguh-sungguh gunakan masa aku tyme tgh study nih. Tapi korang mesti tertanya-tanya, apa kerja aku wat n apa cerita-cerita aku. Kan. Aku tak nak cerita kat sini. Kalu nak dengar, kena jumpa tny aku sendiri ataupun mungkin aku akan ungkaikan sedikit demi sedikit, dari semasa ke semasa dalam blog aku nih. Hik3.

Aku dah abeskan novel Ketika Cinta Bertasbih Episod 2. Episod 1 dah lama dah abes. Buku Episod 2 ni pon aku bc sebab aku pinjam. Hu3. Kalu x, alamatnya, x baca la. Hu3. Sebagaimana biasa, karya Habiburrahman El Shirazy memang tak dapat di pertikaikan. Aku bagi 10/10. Aku rasa semua novel yang aku baca, aku bagi 10/10. Hak3. Menghargai karya. Sudah tentu karya-karya yang diterbitkan dan dibukukan dan dijual bukan boleh diperlekehkan. Setiap karya ada keistimewaannya tersendiri. Tak akan jadi novel tu bosan, novel tu merapu, cerita tu tak best andai kita baca dengan ikhlas dan jumpa dia punya keistimewaan. Kawan aku pon dah kena jugak penagan novel-novel nih. Cuba teka siapa... Hak3...

Oklah setakat ini sahaja... sampai jumpa lagi... Wassalam

Short Stories Competition

MPH Group of Companies has collaborated with Alliance Bank Malaysia Bhd as our main sponsor and the Malay Mail as our official media partner to create a national short story prize in support of the arts and to encourage Malaysian writers to showcase their literary talents. The Prize is also supported by the Reader's Digest, Seventeen Malaysia, Discovery Channel Magazine, The British Council, the National Library of Malaysia and the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage.

We aim to promote the following objectives through the administering of the Prize:

* To encourage reading and writing in the English language;
* To recognise new writers and give them increased confidence to pursue writing as a career;
* To make more widely known the work of rising literary talents;
* To encourage more people to write about their lives in Malaysia; and
* To highlight a diversity of cultures, voices and viewpoints.

We hope that the creation and administration of a short story competition with substantial prizes, courtesy of Alliance Bank, will help foster talented Malaysian writers to move on to publishing books of their own. It is also a platform to encourage Malaysians to write about their lives in Malaysia, overcoming ethnic, linguistic and cultural differences through the common language of English.

Two categories
The competition is divided into two categories: adults and teens. There is no specific theme for the adults category; for teens, the theme is 'Staying and Leaving.' The Prize is open to Malaysian nationals and residents only. The word count for the adults category is from 2,500 to 7,000 words and 2,000 to 4,000 for the teens category. Stories must be previously unpublished and each writer is only allowed to submit a maximum of two entries.

MPH as administrators of the Prize will select a longlist from the entries received, from which the judges will select a shortlist of six stories. The winner of the adult category will receive RM5,000 cash, a laptop and magazine subscriptions; the other five shortlisted entries will each receive a laptop and magazine subscriptions. The winner of the teens category will receive RM2,000 cash, a subnotebook and magazine subscriptions; the other five shortlisted entries will each receive a subnotebook and magazine subscriptions.

~Quotes for Final Exam~

Assalamualaikum WBT.

Since, i'm facing final exams, i do not quite have time to update this blog. Just finished 2 papers. ooo (headache3). 4 more papers still to go.
Wish all of you and me all the best for the final exams. Quotes for me and anyone else whose reading this blog.

It is not the critic who counts; nor the man

who points out how the strong man stumbled,
or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is
actually in the arena; whose face is marred by
dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again
because there is no effort without error and
shortcomings; who knows the great enthusiasms,
the great devotions; who spends himself in a
worthy cause; who at best knows in the end,
the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst,
if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly;
so that his place shall never be
with those cold and timid souls who know
neither victory nor defeat.

~ Theodore Roosevelt (26th U.S. President) ~
