Cendol

I thought I knew the phase that person is in now, as the conversation went on.... I could read what was his concern.

As he was the one who initiated every single topics.
We talked about young Muslim guy who doesn't pray.
Young Muslim man who is successful in career, but for so many years have been giving in their life to the so-called social demands to the extent of drinking beer, wine, etc.

End of it, I received his card.... a Project Manager at the age of 32, working in a civil works construction company.

Then he reached out his hands, offering a hand-shake.

"I never give a chance to myself, for such lecture. Thank u for being honest"

Lecture???

"Then honestly, I dont shake hands with guys bro"

Three people who were listening while enjoying their cendol asked "How?"

I said No.
He said Yes. *mataterbeliak*

"Kak, muktamad?"
"I believe we both have no time for uncertainties. So.... Yes, muktamad."

Well, that's just a little bit of 'fun' on our last day before Ramadhan came in.

Entah apa rencana Tuhan... bila akhir2 ini, kerap sangat jumpa dan kenal dgn manusia yg betah dgn sikap dan kebiasaan yg dulu kita rasa macam di luar batasan yg boleh diterima akal. Tapi peliknya, they are so honest about who they are and what they do, and are quite open to accept criticism.

Dunia ini benar2 tempat ujian.

Bijan

The colours are bright.
Though some of the dark sides are still visible.

But somehow the darker shades made the lighter ones become more noticable.

I declared at the early stage about the limitation...and it turns out well in every occasion. It works the way it is supposed to.

In the middle of a challenging situation, you are suddenly enlightened by the way they portrays the recognition towards you being your pure self.

Dan saya sangat bahagia dgn segelintir dlm komuniti kecil ini, yg benar2 bersifat melindungi.

Though you have to say no to a lot of things they're offering, it was really an honour when they ended up saying. "I like you. I still like you"

Cinta pandang pertama tu wujud. I mean it in a bigger context. Kadang2 just by their way of saying hi and look up to you in the first meeting pun, you know u gonna like them eventually.. even without having to see each other everyday...even without having a close relationship, it is possible to guess, who you gonna be comfortable and confident with, dan siapa yg mampu utk buat kita lebih menghargai diri sendiri, bila dia ada bersama kita.

And a turn-off factor was being told. Then I am like constantly 'pancing' from everyone on how true is that, though I know it's not something with any scales. It's just a firm yes or no. I wish I tersalah dengar or something but...

Haha. Terimalah hakikat.

Things are not perfect here. But I feel much better. Alhamdulillah 😊
