It's still in mind... but when is it?

I have been thinking quite for a long time to stop blogging since managing two blogs doesn't fit me well. Poor management I would say. For that side I have already a focus which is my "photo collection + book reviews". But here I don't have any focus. 


I still have the feel that I want to make use of this blog to share some materials for Literature Component (perhaps some useful ESL activities) to be downloaded for free. 

Whatever it will be just wait and see whether I will walk my talk... :)

The Adorned Nearest Skies

 And, indeed, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lights.. (67:5)

Tomorrow, as NASA advertises, we could see wonderful view of Venus and Jupiter at the western night sky with unaided eyes.Three clear celestial objects (including the moon) are visible if the sky is clear. I'm really waiting for this.

Screen capture of Stellarium software: This is how tomorrow's western night sky at my place will look like. At 20:04:48, on Sunday, March 25.
Weirdo I am?:
I love to observe the sky since I was in primary school. Teachers told me that ancient people used the stars to guide their routes. It was amazing for me to know that those twinkling in the sky can really help us to find the point that we want to go. 

I don't know why some people find that observing the night sky (or stargazing) is kind of weird thing to do. Some friends of mine think that I have been very much influenced by science fiction movies such as Star Wars (I admit that I love the movie but it is not the main reason).

As sama' Ad Dunya:
The reason is the excerpt from the Quran above. The description on how God adorned the nearest earth sky with billions of stars amazes me. As long as we can see the stars, it is the nearest to us and beyond that perimeter should be another level of the heaven. This indicates that we are too far from reaching the first heaven. As far as I know, with the available modern technology, at the present time we have never reached the nearest star.

Lay HAy Zee Hee

Lazy to care for a vast Kingdom
OK. OK... I admit... I am not that active at blogging compared to previous years. It's a wake-up call actually when a friend of mine had asked about the latest entry that I've posted... (which I've no answer for that) From his view, I am now in the "bondage of laziness" He expressed that in a Malay idiom of "Hangat-Hangat Tahi Ayam" which means I was only enthusiastic in the beginning (blogging in specific) but has lost the enthusiasm in a short period.

He could be right but not really described my condition. I do have many things to write on but the time limits me. I had to deal with many important things on my work as a teacher (in Malaysia's environment). I'm holding some important positions such as dealing with students' personal data which requires detailed attentions and has taken over the management of ICT department (even though I'm a language teacher). That's the situation right now.

Hey! It's a post already! THANKS FRIEND! :)

New layout for has come out with a new layout. I haven't update my blog for quite a long time. Time factor is the best reason for that. Knowing the nature of being a teacher in Malaysia, further explanation is not needed. My comment on the new layout and style is "IT IS CLEANER" and I need time to explore the new features.

Discovering TUMBLR.COM

While is offering a new image. I also am exploring a new type of blog which I can access via my Blackberry in easy and simple way. Blogger does not have mobile version for Blackberry so far. So, when I am not in front of my lappy, TUMBLR is my preference. My TUMBLR can be accessed here
