Hello readers, as I told ya last time I got B for my Physics. And so for yesterday, my lecturer told us to complete an assignment which soon we will be rewarded 3% , once in a life time dude! So the due date is today and I completed ze assignment as I woke up for Sahur this morning. The question given is just simple, why can't we create energy? That's all. So as you read this, make up your mind and try to find the answer. But as for me, this is what I have answered for the assignment.

Why can’t we create energy? Why?
As been asked by Dr. Huda
For many years (since 2010), I’ve been studying Physics I know that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. It is energy properties itself. I think if we can create energy, then it would against the laws of Physics which sounds creepy for me. Energy can only be transforms into another form, and we as human only generate the energy. Let me give you an example, water in a reservoir has its own potential energy, and man invented mills at the dam to let the water pass through the mills and generate kinetic energy and converted it to electrical energy. That is why I concluded myself, man can only figure out how to get the energy, generate and intensified but not CREATE energy. So I hope I already answered Dr. Huda’s question.

I hope this answer will be accepted, as this sheets only depends on my common senses and simple-thinking. Whatever it may be, Good job Maghia !


Thank you, Datuk Lee Chong Wei !

On that night, there was no heartbreaking, but only regret and pity.
On that night, many people cried, not because they were sad, but because they were full of pride.
Datuk Lee Chong Wei lost the game, but he will always be the best in our hearts. He is so upright, strong and brave.
We have been waited for 50 years and Chong Wei showed us a wonderful performance. He was so close, yet so far from the gold medal.
When Lin Dan frantically took off his shirt and gladly ran around the court, our Datuk was in great disappointment and self-accusation. It was so sad and painful to see him sitting on the floor with tears in his eyes.
On the award podium, when Li Dan turned and waved to the audience, our Datuk held his head so low and wiped his tears. I believe that many Malaysians had cried together with him at that moment.
Chong Wei, it was indeed too heavy for you to carry the hopes and expectations of all people across the country. However, you did not let us down. You insisted without complaint even though you were still suffering from your knee injury. In the finals, which was described as a century duel, you brought Malaysia to the eyes of the world while showing our children the true meaning of never give up, fight till the end, and feeling proud even in defeat. You also showed us a dream and justice, as well as the spirit of Olympics!
The battle was earth-shattering and fantastic. Would we be able to watch another match as good as this in the future?
In the Wold Championships last year, Chong Wei lost to Lin Dan after bitterly struggled for more than an hour. This time, Chong Wei was so close to the gold medal. Unfortunately, he again lost to Lin Dan, who is more domineering and stronger in terms of psychological quality.
You might said that it is unfortunate for Chong Wei to meet a strong opponent. However, if there is only Lin Dan but no Chong Wei to challenge him, the world of badminton will be much less fun and passion.
Indeed, it is a regret for Chong Wei as the Olympic gold medal now belongs to Lin Dan. However, Chong Wei has added weight and bonus points to the honour. The greatness of Lin Dan is shown because Chong Wei is strong enough to compete with him. Both of them are standing on the peak of the world of badminton. Therefore, the applause belongs not only to Lin Dan, but as well as Chong Wei.
Last but not least, I would like to tell Chong Wei that, you do not have to say sorry, as you have tried and done your best. Thank you for giving the world the stirring 79 minutes. You have not only won yourself respect, but also won the country and the people a great honour. The world badminton history and Malaysians will always remember the excitement and touching moments that you brought!


A true story about a nurse converted to Islam because of her patient, an Alzheimer’s patient.

"My name is Cassie, I am 23 years old. I graduated as a qualified nurse this year and was given my first position as a home nurse.

My patient was an English gentleman in his early 80s who suffered from Alzheimer’s. In the first meeting, the patient was given his record and from it I could see that he was a convert to the religion of Islam, therefore he was a Muslim.

I knew from this that I would
need to take into account some modes of treatment that may go against his faith, and therefore try to adapt my care to meet his needs. I brought in some ‘halal’ meat to cook for him and ensured that there was no pork or alcohol in the premises as I did some research which showed that these were forbidden in Islam.

My patient was in a very advanced stage of his condition so a lot of my colleagues could not understand why I was going through so much effort for him. But I understood that a person who commits to a faith deserves that commitment to be respected, even if they are not in a position to understand.

Anyway after a few weeks with my patient I began to notice some patterns of movement.

At first I thought it was some copied motions he’s seen someone doing, but I saw him repeat the movement at particular time; morning, afternoon, evening.

The movements were to raise his hands, bow and then put his head to the ground. I could not understand it. He was also repeating sentences in another language, I couldn’t figure out what language it was as his speech was slurred but I know the same verses were repeated daily.

Also there was something strange, he didn’t allow me to feed him with my left hand (I am left-handed).

Somehow I knew this linked to his religion but didn’t know how.

One of my colleagues told me about paltalk as a place for debates and discussions and as I did not know any Muslims except for my patient I thought it would be good to speak to someone live and ask questions. I went on the Islam section and entered the room ‘True Message’.

Here I asked questions regarding the repeated movements and was told that these were the actions of prayer. I did not really believe it until someone posted a link of the Islamic prayer on youtube.

I was shocked.

A man who has lost all memory of his children, of his occupation, and could barely eat and drink was able to remember not only actions of prayer but verses that were in another language.

This was nothing short of incredible and I knew that this man was devout in his faith, which made me want to learn more in order to care for him the best I could.

I came into the paltalk room as often as I could and was given a link to read the translation of the Quran and listen to it.

The chapter of the ‘Bee’ gave me chills and I repeated it several times a day.

I saved a recording of the Quran on my iPod and gave it to my patient to listen to, he was smiling and crying, and in reading the translation I could see why.

I applied what I gained from paltalk to care for my patient but gradually found myself coming to the room to find answers for myself.

I never really took the time to look at my life; I never knew my father, my mother died when I was 3, me and my brother were raised by our grandparents who died 4 years ago, so now its just the two of us.

But despite all this loss, I always thought I was happy, content.

It was only after spending time with my patient that felt like I was missing something. I was missing that sense of peace and tranquility my patient, even through suffering felt.

I wanted that sense of belonging and a part of something that he felt, even with no one around him.

I was given a list of mosques in my area by a lady on paltalk and went down to visit one. I watched the prayer and could not hold back my tears.

I felt drawn to the mosque every day and the imam and his wife would give me books and tapes and welcome any questions I had.

Every question I asked at the mosque and on paltalk was answered with such clarity and depth that could do nothing but accept them.

I have never practiced a faith but always believed that there was a God; I just did not know how to worship Him.

One evening I came on paltalk and one of the speakers on the mic addressed me. He asked me if I have any questions, I said no. He asked if I was happy with the answers I was given, I said yes.

He asked then what was stopping me accepting Islam, I could not answer.

I went to the mosque to watch the dawn prayer. The imam asked me the same question, I could not answer.

I then went to tend to my patient, I was feeding him and as I looked in his eyes I just realized, he was brought to me for a reason and the only thing stopping me from accepting was fear…. not fear in the sense of something bad, but fear of accepting something good, and thinking that I was not worthy like this man.

That afternoon I went to the mosque and asked the imam if I could say my declaration of faith, the Shahadah.: lā ilāha illà al-Lāh, Muhammadun rasūlu Al-Lāh. There is no god except Allah, Muhammad is Allah’s messenger.

He helped me through it and guided me through what I would need to do next.

I cannot explain the feeling I felt when I said it.

It was like someone woke me up from sleep and sees everything more clearly.

The feeling was overwhelming joy, clarity and most of all…. peace.

The first person I told was not my brother but my patient.

I went to him, and before I even opened my mouth he cried and smiled at me.

I broke down in front of him, I owed him so much.

I came home logged on to paltalk and repeated the shahadah for the room.

They all helped me so much and even though I had never seen a single one of them, they felt closer to me than my own brother.

I did eventually call my brother to tell him and although he wasn’t happy, he supported me and said he would be there, I couldn’t ask for any more.

After my first week as a Muslim my patient passed away in his sleep while I was caring for him. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon.

He died a peaceful death and I was the only person with him.

He was like the father I never had and he was my doorway to Islam.

From the day of my Shahadah to this very day and for every day for as long as I live, I will pray that Allah shows mercy on him and grant him every good deed I perform in the tenfold.

I loved him for the sake of Allah and I pray each night to become an atoms weight of the Muslim he was.

Islam is a religion with an open door; it is there for those who want to enter it…. Verily Allah is the Most Merciful, Most Kind.

* Note * Our sister Cassie passed away October 2010 Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon, after she gave da’wa to her brother, who had accepted Islam Alhamdulillah"
