Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys In the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.

Poems written by WIFE and HUSBAND.
I wrote your name on sand it got washed.
I wrote your name in air, it was blown away.
Then I wrote your name on my heart & I got Heart Attack.
God saw me hungry, he created pizza.
He saw me thirsty, he created Pepsi.
He saw me in the dark, he created light.
He saw me without problems, he created YOU.
Twinkle twinkle little star
You should know what you are
And once you know what you are
Mental hospital is not so far.
The rain makes all things beautiful.
The grass and flowers too.
If rain makes all things beautiful
Why doesn't it rain on you?
Roses are red; Violets are blue
Monkeys like u should be kept in zoo.
Don't feel so angry you will find me there too
Not in cage but outside, laughing at you

I think twice.
Few weeks back everytime I read news or watch TV, I feel shivers on my spine. People are fighting over religions and racism issues, here and there they parade on strikes over burning of Quran or Bible, people are protesting the construction of mosque or the demolishing of the temple. Everyone have their own saying. Everyone think that they have their rights and they are better than the others. But everyone forget that we are infact all human.
I am enthusiast to talk about the US Pastor, Terry Jones with his gimmick to burn Quran and cancelled it not long after that, or about the Islamophobic issues of building a religious center in Ground Zero, Manhattan. But I dare not. My country even small have our own racism issues that we have to deal with. I can just close my eyes or deafen my ears like always everytime I face this issues but I think we have enough of that. We are our own angel and demon. It is true that human are born capable of things. We have the power of mind and words and we are all well aware of that. But it seems like we human always take these two lightly. Resulting in war, riots and worse people being killed. It is not people known by us. But what if it is? Will we think about it more deeply then of our action?
Lets not go too far, let just look around us. I have this blogger friend of mine, she is just 16. Still in school. She added me on my facebook after been following my blog. Lastweek she posted on her wall that Malays are pig. I were shaken to read it. She watched this clip about a guy being hit and run by Malay guy. Later on few peoples commenting on the post and fighting over the races. Sadly all are so young. Where are these youngsters learn how to be so pessimistic on races. Thus, we all our own angel and demon.
It is true that the kindest word of all is the unkind word remain unsaid. Religions teach us to be careful on the acts and words of our ownself. It is weird when people talking loudly on prejudism or racism in the name of religion whereby no religion ever promote it. In Quran clearly stated, "O mankind! We created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know and honor each other (not that you should despise one another). Indeed the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most righteous." Chapter 49, Verse 13 and clearly we do not force others to believe what they do not believe; "In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Most Beneficent, For me is my religion, and for you is your religion" (Al-Kafiroun: 6). Hence, we are in fact our own angel and demon.
My daughter asked me again today; "Who am I?", after her friend's parents refused her to play in their house because she is not one of them. After long pause, I said, "Asked your friend to come and play here then. In our house. I don't mind, we are all Malaysian. I see you and I see them as kids. You are all the same to me. And you, you are what you think you are. If you think that you are Malay then you are one. If you think that you are Indian, nobody can't say you are not, because in the end all of us just going the same way".
Maybe she doesn't understand what I mean. Yet. But I am thankful for the power of mind and words bestowed on me. I am thankful for the country that I share with others but still able to breathe the fresh air. I am thankful for the history lesson I learned in school that war doesn't solve anything and if you blind your eyes on the colours of the skin, the origins of people, something great can be work out together.
Maybe next time when people get into trouble in the news, instead of asking whether they are Malay or Chinese or Indian, I will ask are they fine? Maybe next time when people write racism article I will just delete it instead of pass it to others like rubbing salt to open wound, Maybe next time instead of saying I am Malay, I will say I am Malaysian. For the end of the day, I am the one who can decide to make this world better or to ruin it, for in the end heaven is the place on earth, for in the end I am the angel and the demon.
Imagine there's no Heaven, It's easy if you try, No hell below us, Above us only sky, Imagine all the people, Living for today, Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too, Imagine all the people, Living life in peace, You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one, I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will be as one, Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man, Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world - John Lennon : Imagine

Disturbed in heart and mind
By Marina Mahathir
The Shah Rukh Khan hit movie ‘My Name is Khan’ holds a pertinent message for us: there are only good and bad people in this world; there are no other differences.
IT’S very strange, but as we enter our 54th year of independence, what I least feel is independent. It so happened that I had to travel far recently, to a land where the air was a lot cleaner.
I felt that I breathed a lot easier but I don’t think it was just the air. Once you get away, the air just feels so much less toxic.
Indeed, in the month of Ramadan – the month of reflection and restraint – we find instead more toxicity than ever.
From school principals who spout racist nastiness to politicians and media who insist on poisoning what is already a poisoned well.
Instead of the serenity one hopes to feel at this time, in order to feel closer to God, all I can feel is the disturbance in the heart and mind that comes from living in an environment of hate.
It’s not that I’m lacking in loving friends, family or neighbours.
I live in a lovely street where we know one another and help each other out.
My friends are the kindest in the world. I feel blessed to know all of them.
But I open the newspaper or switch on the TV and there is nothing but anger and sadness.
How can we call ourselves independent when we are so caught up by hate, none of which seems to have any real foundation at all?
A few thousand kilometres away, the rhetoric of hate has become mainstream.
No American politician worth his salt, especially if he’s standing for election this November, will avoid talking about religion, affirming his own and besmirching others.
A rally by the most rabid right-wingers to supposedly “reclaim honour” drew 87,000 people.
The direct result of all this hate-mongering was the stabbing of a
When we look in horror at these events on the other side of the world and feel indignant and self-righteous about them, do we think how we might ourselves contribute to the same treatment to others?
We see how badly minorities are treated in those countries and see no irony in treating our minorities the same way.
Is our empathy only meant for those of the same faith as us?
In Surah 21, verse 92 of the Quran, God speaks: “Verily, [O you who believe in Me,] this community of yours is one single community, since I am the Sustainer of you all: worship, then, Me [alone]!”
And again in Surah 33, verse 35: “Verily, for all men and women who have surrendered themselves unto God, and all believing men and believing women, and all truly devout men and truly devout women, and all men and women who are true to their word, and all men and women who are patient in adversity, and all men and women who humble themselves [before God], and all men and women who give in charity, and all self-denying men and self-denying women, and all men and women who are mindful of their chastity, and all men and women who remember God unceasingly: for [all of] them has God readied forgiveness of sins and a mighty reward.”
In both these verses, and in fact in the entire Quran, God does not speak of particular races but simply to all humankind. We are all equal before God.
How is it that we missed this simple message?
If we knew it, would we be spreading toxins instead of love and respect for one another?
Do we have the independence of mind to believe, rather than to follow those who claim to know what’s good for us but in fact are poisoning us bit by bit?
I just watched the Shah Rukh Khan hit movie My Name is Khan for the second time.
Everyone, regardless of race or religion, has a chance to be good and bad in the movie.
Censoring it, in fact, was a great disservice to Muslims and missed its central message.
When the Shah Rukh Khan character was a child, his mother told him a truth that he held onto all his life: there are only good and bad people in this world.
There are no other differences between human beings.
Perhaps we should make all our politicians watch it.
They might learn something not very new. They might learn that most of us can tell who’s good and who’s bad.
