The fourth-graders were having a lesson in arithmetic, and their teacher, Miss A, greeted her students with a very simple question.
"If a man can walk three miles in one hour, how many miles can he walk in four hours?"
So, one of the brightest student of hers, Student B, quickly raised his hand and gave his answer, "12 miles teacher!!"
When Miss A started to smile realizing how lucky she is having Student B in her class, another pupil, Student C popped up his hand.
"Teacher, he might be quite right, but for me, it would depend on how tired he got after the first hour," he answered.
The other pupils burst into laughters. Then Miss A rapped for order.
"I never looked at the problem that way before. I always supposed that man could walk twelve miles in four hours, but Student C might be right. That man may not feel so spunky after the first hour. He may drag his feet. He may slow up."
Right upon her comment, Student D raised his hand. "I think there might be cases where a man tried to walk twelve miles, and he died of heart failure," Student D said.
"Oh my Goodness!!" said the teacher. "I suppose that could happen too."
"Anything could happen in four hours, teacher," said Student C. "We never knew what will happen to us during the few hours ahead. "
"It would indeed," agreed the teacher. "Well children, I think we have learned a great deal about arithmetic today, thanks everybody for your ideas. But remember, in exam, this question still requires 12 miles as the answer." The class ended with all other pupils roared.
Hmm, when I think deeply about this, mathematically speaking, yes, the answer is 12 miles. But in real life situation, it might not be quite right.
We might want something to come out as what it is SUPPOSE to be, but we never knew what is actually waiting for us in future. There might be something comes up that will slow us down, or for the worst case, something that will stop us from doing that forever. Think~ think~

We talked about quite a number of things. But two were thoroughly discussed according to our subject of preferences. Possible dates and budgets. Then I realize that this is not a plain conversation we are talking about. This is about marriage. And it demands deep and huge amount of efforts to make it happen. I think I'm not gonna say anything in details over here. Let it just be between me and him and of course The Almighty. We can only plan. Allah SWT will do the rest.
- Mutual agreement (Ijab Kabul) by the bride and the groom
- Two adult and sane witnesses
- Mahr (marriage-gift) to be paid by the groom to the bride
- Legal guardian (wali) representing the bride
- Written marriage contract
- Qadi (a responsible person officiating the marriage ceremony)
- Khutba-tun-Nikah to solemnize the marriage
Then, when everything above is ideally done, the marriage banquet (walimah) will follow. The relatives, neighbours, and friends are invited to make them aware of the marriage. Both rich and poor of the family and community are invited to the marriage feast. That's all for a complete wedding.
Hmm, how simple is that right? So, I PERSONALLY hope that my wedding would be as simple as this. Tak perlu bermegah-megah dengan majlis yang besar-besaran. No, no such thing like that. Saya mengharapkan majlis yang ringkas, tapi biarlah sempurna. InsyaAllah.

Style jugak pakai baju kelawar macam ni kan. Yang penting berangin. [photo courtesy]
Lepas tu teringat pulak baju Kedah yang nenek-nenek suka pakai tu. The material is 100% cotton and it is made very loose with cute and sweet flower prints pattern. Pakai pulak dengan kain batik. Perghhh, lagi berangin. Tapi I pulak yang tak berapa reti nak pakai kain batik. Boleh tu boleh. Cuma paling lama boleh tahan dalam 10menet. Tu pun dah control jalan ayu gila taknak bagi tertanggal.hahaha. After 10minutes, that's it! Sila pergi tukar uniform cepat! Respect gila dekat mak-mak yang pakai kain batik sambil buat kerja rumah laju-laju tanpa perlu risau kain batik tertanggal dan tertinggal kat mana-mana.hahaha..:p
Dekat rumah tok ada banyak.hehe.. [photo courtesy]
