Salam Akhir Ramadhan dan Aidil Fitri

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. dan salam sejahtera,

Yesterday, I was so relieved I got my laptop back after more than one week of its absence. The best thing is, although the warranty has expired for about a few months back, HP replaced the motherboard for free since this is the 2nd time it failed within less than a year. Though the machine I can say is not the best quality you can get on the market, but the after-sales service is among the best I've ever experienced! Alhamdulillah.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the Muslims visitor of my blog a Happy Hari Raya, may this ending of Ramadhan is full of Allah's blessings to us all. Have a safe journey 'balik kampung' to those who are going to, and to those who is going to work over the holidays, don't feel sad. Your 'rezeki cuti' may come later or next year, insya-Allah. Jangan lupa balik rumah sendiri dan tempat kerja lepas raya ni udah la yer!

Difference between Focusing on Problems and Focusing on Solutions

Case 1

When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found
out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow
down to the writing surface). To solve this problem, it took them
one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at
zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface
including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing
to over 300 degrees C.

And what did the Russians do...?? They used a pencil.

Case 2

One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was
the case of the empty soapbox, which happened in one of Japan 's
biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint
that a consumer had bought a soapbox that was empty. Immediately
the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which
transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery
department. For some reason, one soapbox went through the
assembly line empty.

Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste,
the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with
high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the
soapboxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not
empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they
spent a whoopee amount to do so.

But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed
with the same problem, he did not get into complications of
X-rays, etc., but instead came out with another solution. He
bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the
assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soapbox passed
the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.

Moral: Always look for simple solutions.

Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problems

Always Focus on solutions & not on problems

Mobile Phones - Problem with your mobile web browser?

Recently, I was having problems with my N82 web browser. Before this, it works perfectly well, almost at par with any IE7 or Mozilla Firefox browser on a PC. Suddenly, a few days back, the web browser starts to behave weirdly and some texts or fonts doesn't appear as shown on these screencaps far below.

I almost cracked my head thinking, what went wrong? Is it because I hacked my phone so I can install any unsigned application? Or is it because I changed the product code so I can view any arabic characters on my phone? Or is it infected by virus or something?

I tried all possible methods: Scan the phone using my mobile anti-virus and also my PC anti-virus - my phone is clean. Un-hacking the phone - unsuccessful. Reinstall the phone firmware - nothing changes. I almost reset it back to the factory setting, or even worse, reformat it again, luckily i didn't, for it is gonna be a very time-consuming & tiresome process! Then, i tried to find answers by googling it on my alternative mobile browser - the Opera Mini. Wallaweh...I found the possible cause and solution HERE. And..the best thing is, it works like a charm and now everything goes back to normal...hoorayyyy....and err...Alhamdulillah!

Let me paste some of the Q&A on the website that helps me in solving the problem:

Q: I can't see some texts when i open web sites in my mobile browser . you can see the screenshot in this link :

Reply 1: Have you recently installed a Ramadan application? If so, try uninstalling it (and contact the developer for fixing it, if it is to blame).

Reply 2: yes.i installed the quran application . but when i trying to delete it ,come in screen unable to delete files . how can i delet this application???

Ahh...don't waste time! Let me jump to the answers that help me in solving the problem:

SOLUTION: You don't need to format your phone or uninstall Quran application. I had the same problem on my Nokia N95 8G and I resolved it as follow :
- from c:\windows\fonts on my PC , I copied arial.ttf,
verdana.ttf, tahoma.ttf to e:\ressource\fonts on my phone
- restart phone

Both Quran and web-Browser applications work fine.

From stupid hawkers to stupid drivers...astaghfirullah!

Today is the 8th day of Ramadhan, means it has been 8 days the Muslims had been fasting. 22 more days to go, insya-Allah.

Almost every day, I went to the Ramadhan bazaar nearby my house. Not to complaint, but I guess some of the hawkers is something like the Malays said 'melepaskan batuk di tangga'.

Why do I say so? Ye lah, kalau nak berniaga tu biarlah bersungguh. Jual makanan tu biarlah harga berpatutan, rasa pun biarlah masuk di tekak. Dah berapa kali aku terkena, udah le tak murah, rasa plak macam nasi nak diberi kat ayam makan je. Ye la, nama je nasi ayam, tapi kita manusia yang nak makan! Tau tak wahai peniaga, tak halal duit pendapatan menjual camtu?

*Adik ni takde kena pengena dengan peniaga yang hampeh. Mereka berniaga sate. Sedap.
Kakak dia pun cun...hehe! Gambar masa bazaar tahun lepas. Sori dik tempek sini.

Today afternoon, I rushed to my mum's place to settle a few things there. 5.30pm, rushed back home towards Cyberjaya. Mak oi...MRR2 (hiway 'mau repair 2 kali') jem tak hengat! Kalau ikut Jln Tun Razak & Sg Besi pun lagi teruk aku rasa.

Nak dijadikan cerita, selepas bayar tol RM1.30 berdekatan palace of the golden horses tu, kereta memang dah berderet. Biasala, lepas susur mines & seri kembangan baru reda tu. Ada satu amoi bengap, bawak waja sorang2, dok himpit kereta aku dalam jem tu. Nak cilok kanan dalam jem tu. Punya la bangang (dah la amoi, sure tak puasa, aku ni puasa, sabar je le) sampai bergesel side mirror dia kat tepi pintu aku. Apa buta ke, kereta aku jauh lagi besar sebelah dia. Lain la dia memang depan sikit dari aku ke, leh la aku bagi dia masuk, ni mmg betul2 kat sebelah. Dasar amoi tak basuh anu! Ikutkan baran aku, nak je aku turun lempang je muka dia yang macam tonyok tu, tapi dia plak yg marah hon aku kuat2? Kalau dah makan babi tu, perangai pun macam babi, salah sendiri nak marah orang lain. HERAN AKU!

Sebagai muslim, aku ambil tindakan buat tak tahu je. Sabar, aku tak rugi ape. Nasib baik angin aku hari ni angin melayu. Kalau angin keling tadi, dah kena cabul dah kot amoi busuk tu!

*Hai...tak pepasal susut pahale pose aku hari ni, menyumpah punye pasal! Cobaan...

51 Tahun Merdeka dan Ramadhan Al-Mubarak

Salam Ramadhan dan tidak lewat untuk salam kemerdekaan Malaysia ke 51 tahun buat para pembaca dan pengunjung blog saya ini sekelian. Pada saat saya menaip nukilan rasa ini, masuk hari kedua Ramadhan. Alhamdulillah, saya rasa sebagaimana saya sendiri, segalanya dapat diharungi dengan baik oleh anda semua, insya-Allah.

Melihat perkembangan terkini tanahair, dari pilihanraya Permatang Pauh, penurunan amat sedikit harga bahanapi, bahang yang suam-suam kuku sambutan kemerdekaan ke 51 negara, ke Ramadhan yang baru sahaja bermula, membuatkan saya terfikir pelbagai perkara, terutama masa depan kita di negara ini, lebih-lebih lagi generasi Bumiputera akan datang.

Saya tidak berniat untuk membakar api perkauman, bukan juga menyokong mana-mana pihak apa lagi para pemimpin, sekadar memberi peringatan kepada semua pihak, baik apa bangsa dan agama sekalipun, jangan terlalu leka dan alpa, dan jangan pula dijolok sarang tebuan. Suasana dalam negara kini baik dari segi ekonomi mahupun politik, tidaklah sebaik dahulu saya kira.

Buat bukan bumiputera, sama-samalah kita kongsi kuasa, kongsi kaya, jangan hanya suka nak kongsi raya. Jangan lupa asal-usul anda. Jangan cuba nak jadi kaduk naik junjung. Bangsa yang nampak lembut seperti kami tidak bermakna kami ini lemah. Kami sangat tak suka jika kejadian keris, parang, lembing terbang tidak bertuan berulang lagi. Ingat, kami masih mampu.

Buat Bumiputera, jangan hanya diulit sukaria. Usahakan agar segalanya masih dapat dikekalkan, mahupun ditambah, bukan semakin berkurangan. Jangan kerana nak dapat populariti atau kepentingan peribadi, sanggup menikam bangsa dan agama sendiri. Jangan takut untuk bersuara, jangan jadi pengecut dan bacul di tanahair sendiri. Takde maknanya!

Ingatlah semua, negara kita adalah tanggungjawab kita. Biar kita berbeza pendapat, fahaman, anutan, warna kulit, perpecahan hanya akan merugikan semua. Saya betul-betul berharap, negara yang diwariskan kepada saya oleh moyang, datuk dan ayah saya ini, dapat saya wariskan kepada anak, cucu dan cicit saya. Moga Ramadhan ini membawa kesedaran kepada SEMUA!
