Adakah ini boikot?

When must the line be drawn? Adakah tindakan PM Turki meninggalkan forum itu wajar? Further question would be, siapakah mereka yang bertepuk tangan selesai Presiden Israel berucap dan perlukah negara mereka yang bertepuk itu diboikot?

p/s: nak komen silakan tapi beradab please.

PM Turki tinggalkan sidang Davos kerana Gaza

30/01/2009 6:29pm

DAVOS 30 Jan. - Perdana Menteri Turki, Recep Tayyip Erdogan bertindak meninggalkan sidang Forum Ekonomi Dunia (WEF) di sini semalam selepas terlibat dengan pertikaman lidah dengan Presiden Israel, Shimon Peres berhubung konflik di Genting Gaza.

Recep berikrar tidak akan kembali semula menyertai forum itu, yang dihadiri oleh elit politik dan perniagaan dunia.

Dalam detik-detik paling dramatik yang jarang dilihat berlaku pada forum Davos, Recep berjalan keluar meninggalkan dewan di hadapan Setiausaha Agung Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (PBB), Ban Ki-moon dan anggota panel lain dengan mendakwa, beliau telah dipaksa memendekkan kenyataannya mengenai perang itu.

“Saya tidak fikir saya akan kembali ke Davos selepas ini kerana anda tidak membenarkan saya bercakap,” kata Perdana Menteri itu sebelum beredar, meskipun beliau malam tadi menyatakan kesediaan untuk menimbangkan semula keputusannya itu.

Recep mengkritik hadirin yang terdiri daripada tokoh korporat dan politik antarabangsa kerana memberi tepukan selepas Peres dengan penuh emosi mempertahankan serangan Israel ke atas Gaza, sehingga menyebabkan lebih 1,300 rakyat Palestin terkorban.

Beliau yang mengetuai segelintir negara Islam yang mempunyai hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel menyifatkan apa yang dilakukan oleh Israel di Gaza sebagai tindakan “tidak bertamadun.”

“Saya berasa sangat sedih kerana hadirin bertepuk tangan selepas tuan (Peres) berucap kerana ramai penduduk (Palestin) telah terbunuh,” katanya kepada Peres sebelum dicelah oleh pengerusi sesi iaitu wartawan Washington Post, David Ignatius.

“Kita tidak boleh memulakan perbahasan semula kerana kita kesuntukan masa,” kata Ignatius kepada Perdana Menteri Turki itu.

Peres sebelum itu mendakwa Israel terpaksa melancarkan serangan ke atas Hamas kerana ribuan roket dan mortar telah dilancarkan ke wilayah Israel.

Sambil meninggi suara dan menuding jari ke arah Recep, beliau berkata, Turki sudah tentu bertindak sama jika roket dilancarkan ke Istanbul.

Ki-moon, Recep, Setiausaha Agung Liga Arab, Amr Mussa dan Peres duduk dalam satu barisan untuk menyertai perbahasan itu dan kesemua mereka membuat kenyataan panjang lebar mengulas mengenai konflik tersebut. - AFP

Turkish PM storms out of Davos' Gaza session, slams moderator

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan stormed out of a heated debate on the Gaza war with Israel's President Shimon Peres at the Davos forum on Thursday.

Erdogan said at a press conference after the incident that his reaction targeted the moderator who, he said, did not give him the floor to speak.   

"My reaction here was towards the moderator. Such moderation will cast a shadow over peace efforts," Erdogan told reporters, adding the moderator gave each speaker around 12-15 minutes to speak but he allowed Peres to talk for 25 minutes.   

Turkey harshly criticized Israel over its Gaza operation which left more than 1,300 people dead. The relations between Turkey and Israel, two countries who have close diplomatic and military ties, have been strained, experts say. 

"I did not target at all in any way the Israeli people, President Peres or the Jewish people. On the contrary, during the panels I attended both at lunch and tonight, I specifically stressed that anti-Semitism is a crime against humanity," Erdogan added in the press conference.  The Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon and the General Secretary of Arap League Amr Moussa had joined Erdogan and Peres in the session which was moderated by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. 

"DON'T THINK I WILL COME BACK"

"I do not think I will be coming back to Davos after this because you do not let me speak," Erdogan shouted before marching off the stage in front of the attendance and the audience. 

During the joint press conference with the chairman of World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab, Erdogan said he will discuss the issue with Schwab when asked whether he will attend the future WEF meetings. 

Although Peres has raised his voice during the session and targeted directly the Turkish Prime Minister, he did not raise his voice because of his respect, Erdogan said.
 

SESSION DISCUSSION

Erdogan criticized the audience for applauding Peres’s emotional defense of Israel's war in Gaza, before the moderator, insisted that the debate had gone overtime. 

Erdogan said Israel had carried out "barbarian" actions in Gaza. "I find it very sad that people applaud what you have said because you know how to kill people," shouted Erdogan before he left. There was more applause when he left the stage. 

Peres, a veteran Israeli statesman who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 for his efforts to reconcile with Yasser Arafat's Palestine Liberation Organization, had told the audience that Israel had been forced into the offensive against Hamas by thousands of rockets and mortars fired into Israel. 

"The tragedy of Gaza is not Israel, it is Hamas," said Peres. "They created a dictatorship. A very dangerous one." 

Ban, Erdogan, Moussa and Peres had all been sitting alongside each other for the debate.  

All gave long impassioned statements on the conflict which left more than 1,300 Palestinians dead and widespread destruction in Gaza. 

The U.N. secretary general had called on Israel to end its blockade of Gaza, again condemned the Israeli bombing of a U.N. base in the territory, and called for Hamas to end its violence for renewed Arab efforts to bring together divided Palestinian groups. 

Moussa, who also strongly attacked Israel, said after the debate that Erdogan should have been given more time as "people are very emotional" when discussing the Middle East.

Alhamdulillah..

Dalam panas ada rahmat.

Alhamdulillah berkat doa, tawakkal dan usaha kami, kami telah mendapat sebuah rumah baru untuk disewa. Terlebih baik lagi, rumah ini mempunyai kelebihan berikut jika dibandingkan dengan rumah sekarang. Tak lupa kepada sahabat-sahabat yang mendoakan kami jua (mungkin doa kalian yang Allah s.w.t. makbulkan).

1. Dekat dengan sekolah cuma ½ km dari sekolah (sekarang ni 1.3km dari sekolah). So bolehlah aku bagi kerja hantar/jemput ni kat wife aku 100% muahahaha…

2. Dekat dengan laluan bas GO ZONE. Maksudnya kat laluan ni bas datang setiap 15 minit (sekarang 30 minit satu bas).

3. Pagar rumah tertutup keliling rumah (macam current house). Mudah untuk wife aku berada kat luar rumah untuk sidai kain ke etc dan terpelihara aurat.

4. Ada bilik ekstra untuk study + 3 bilik tidur (current house 3 bilik tidur dan satu tu aku convert jadi bilik study). So sekarang 2 anak kecil yang masih tidur dalam bilik kami, kami cadang nak masuk bilik yang ketiga. Yeaaaa...(yang tak kawin lagi, please read with caution) !!!

5. Dan probably paling bagus, jarak dengan masjid Wandana tak banyak berubah. Apapun dekat/jauh dari masjid bukan sebab selalu ke masjid hehehe... (boleh tanya mereka yang duduk dekat-dekat masjid).


Apapun kena reality check dulu bila dah betul-betul masuk rumah. Sewa pun bertambah $40 seminggu (jeng... jeng... jeng) so ini semua kena balance balik.

Kot nak tengok rumah tu, boleh JENGUK KAT SINI (sebelum link ni didelete oleh agent).

Nanti dah masuk dalam rumah, aku pos gambar banyak-banyak OK?

PANAS!!!

Panas kembali lagi!

Laporan terkini kepanasan di Adelaide (dan luahan seorang musafir) boleh BACA SINI.
Gua sendiri mintak cuti dari supervisor, mintak kerja dari rumah je. Sebab nak hantar/jemput anak ke sekolah. Nak suruh wife tak sampai hati tengok Isa yang umur nak masuk 2 tahun tu kena jalan sekali (dalam stroller) sejauh 3 km pergi balik.
Lagipun tiap-tiap petang jam 4 petang ada house-viewing nak cari rumah sewa baru.
Time panas macam ni, pergi pantai la bagus. Berendam. Macam badak berendam.

Boikot? Demonstrasi?

Ada sorang mamat nak meluahkan perasaan tapi takde ruang. Gua bagi ruang...

ditulis oleh: Aliph al-Turkistani al-Celupi
disunting supaya sesuai dibaca oleh manusia: Abang Ben al-Adelaideani
AWAS! Artikel panjang berjela (sila sediakan secawan kopi panas dan biskut kering untuk celup)
AWAS #2! Artikel PANAS! (sila sediakan air batu nak curah atas kepala)
------------------------------------
Arghh... Gua bosan betul lah ini macam bro… Bukak email aje, ade orang kempen boikot… Bukak YM je... ade SMS orang buat program Palestine... Bukak Fs je ade orang ajak pi demonstrasi... Siap hantar SMS lagi… Adoi…Hmm... Palestine ni bukan kes baru lah... Gua rase boikot ni dah pernah ade mase zaman gua sekolah rendah dan menengah... haha... Gua time tu pon ambil bahagian jugak dalam kempen boikot ni... Tapi macam tak berjaya je... cawangan KFC, McD, Starbuck terus bercambah, Exxonmobil terus gagah, nokia terus maju... dan lain juga terus mara ke hadapan...

Oh... Gua bukan tak sedih, gua lagi sedih... Member gua sorang mamat Palestine, name dia Ahmad, mase malam Gaza kene bomb... dia call gua... dia bagitau, rumah family dia kena bomb... cousin dia, adik perempuan dia, dengan mak dia terbunuh dalam serangan itu... moga Allah bagi mereka syahid... Ha, gua lagi 10 kali lagi sedih... sampai bergenang air mate gua... ade sesiapa yang ade kawan-kawan palestine dekat sini? Gua dapat berita direct dengan suara pilu dan khabar yang tragis... Lu ingat gua tak sedih? Nyanyi sikit, sayu dan pilu, bermain dijiwa ku, hilangmu kini tiada pengganti... yeyergh!!!

Apa makna demonstrasi dan boikot?
Demonstrasi bermaksud perhimpunan manusia untuk menyatakan protest ketidakpuashatian mereka terhadap sesuatu isu. Demonstrasi aman adalah tanpa sebarang rusuhan dan kekasaran. Boikot pula adalah pemulauan terhadap sesuatu. Maksud secara jelas disini demonstrasi aman dan boikot untuk isu Palestin adalah protest terhadap serangan Israel terhadap Palestin dan boikot product dan service US dan Yahudi.

Apa tujuan boikot dan demonstrasi?
Boikot... macam-macam tujuan yang gua penah dengar... gua akan listkan apa yang gua ingat...

  • Jihad ekonomi
  • Melumpuhkan ekonomi US dan Yahudi
  • Memberi amaran kepada US dan Yahudi
  • Cara yang mampu kita bantu orang Palestin
  • untuk merugikan syarikat US dan Yahudi
  • fatwa dari Ulamak terkenal
  • kerana Allah
  • tolong la isi tempat kosong ni...
Demonstrasi pulak...
  • Mengutuk kekejaman Yahudi
  • Meminta setiap pihak membantu dan menyokong
  • Menunjukkan rasa tanggungjawab kita terhadap sesama saudara Islam
  • Menyatakan ketidakpuashatian terhadap Yahudi
  • tolong isi tempat kosong...
Demonstrasi dan boikot ini sunnah ke?
Sebelum gua jawab soalan ni... Kita muzakarah balik...
Korang mesti dah tau makana dalil Al-Quran dan Sunnah kan?

Ibadah?
Ibadah mesti kena ada dalil dari Al-Quran dan Sunnah. Ibadah mesti mengikut sunnah baru Ibadat itu sah dan mendapat pahala...

Contoh:
Mamat Boikot: Hari ni aku ingat aku nak solat magrib 5 rakaat, sebab semangat sangat... Boleh tak?
Mamat demo: Oi, mane boleh... Solat maghrib 3rakaat saje...
Mamat Boikot: Ala, hari ni aku semangat lebih ni... Nak solat lebih sikit... apa salahnya kan...
Mamat demo: Nabi pon solat 3 rakaat je maghrib...
Mamat Boikot: Nabi dah ade banyak amal... Lagi pon dia maksum... aku tak maksum... Lebih tak apa, kurang jangan...

Ha, boleh tak ini macam? TAK BOLEH sebab tak ade dalil dari Quran dan Sunnah untuk solat maghrib 5 rakaat...

Usul dalam ibadah “semua ibadah adalah haram jika tiada dalil dari quran dan sunnah

Apa makana bid’ah?
Perbuatan yang dikatakan “ibadat” tetapi “ibadat” itu nabi dan sahabat tidak pernah lakukan pada zaman mereka... Segala “ibadat” yang baru adalah bid’ah, bid’ah itu sesat, dan sesat itu ke neraka... Oh... Aku petik kata-kata Dr Asri, yang tak sunnah itu bid’ah lah, yg tak Islam itu kafir... Mudah kan?

Apa makna sunnah?
Korang dah tau kan? Bende yang Nabi s.a.w. dan sahabat r.a. buat ada dalil dari quran dan hadis... Ok, korang semua dah ingat balik semua tu? Bagus... Kita mulakan perbahasan mengenai tajuk...

Soalan : Demonstrasi dan boikot ini sunnah ke?
Aku rasa korang perlu tanya diri korang dulu soalan tu sebelum korang nak boikot or pergi demonstrasi...
Adakah ia ibadah?
Ok, Jom kita check...

  • Ada dalam Quran Allah s.w.t. suruh kita buat demonstrasi dan boikot?
  • Ada dalam sunnah Nabi s.a.w. dan para sahabat r.a. pernah buat demonstrasi dan boikot?
Jawapan : tak ada... So, apa hukum demonstrasi dan boikot? Pilihlah sendiri antara tak sunnah, bid’ah atau bukan ibadah... Mungkin boleh diletakkan makruh atau harus... WA...

Mari kita rujuk dalam sejarah Islam... Siapakah golongan pertama yang memulakan boikot?
Jawapan : Kafir Quraish... Mase Nabi s.a.w. awal buat dakwah kat Makkah... Nabi s.a.w.dan para sahabat r.a. telah diboikot oleh kafir quraish di lembah Abi Talib untuk beberapa tempoh... Sehingga ada yang mati kelaparan... Dikatakan Khadijah wafat kesan dari boikot itu... Ada Nabi s.a.w.suruh sahabat or Nabi s.a.w. ajak sahabat buat demonstrasi dekat kaabah or depan umah Abu Jahal?

Soalan: Siapa pula yang memulakan demonstrasi dalam sejarah Islam?
Jawapan : Khawarij... Khawarij yang memulakan demonstrasi menentang pemerintah Ali bin Abi Talib... Ok, Mase di Mekah, di awal kurun kenabian ramai sahabat ditangkap dan diseksa... ada yang di depan mata Nabi s.a.w.sendiri... Ada Nabi s.a.w. ajak orang Islam buat demonstrasi? Masa di Madinah, selepas Nabi s.a.w. diangkat menjadi pemimpin... Ade Nabi s.a.w. suruh boikot orang yahudi yang pada ketika itu memegang ekonomi di Madinah dan banyak menindas orang Islam...
Takde beb... Ade orang Islam ketika itu buat demonstrasi or boikot? Orang Yahudi juga pada masa itu telah berpakat dengan kafir quraish secara sulit untuk menjatuhkan Islam... Mereka telah mengkhianati perjanjian JPA... eh, silap... telah mengkhianati bai’ah dengan Nabi s.a.w. ... Ada Nabi s.a.w. ajak para sahabat boikot yahudi... sebab mereka mahu menghancurkan Islam... ada tak kawan-kawan?

Mengikut Sejarah, boikot dan demonstrasi telah dimulakan pada zaman Rom... Oh, rupanya tertib boikot dan demonstrasi ini adalah tertib orang kafir, nasrani dan yahudi...

Dalam quran ada kata kan,lebih kurang camnila “jangan menyerupai mereka... ” Aku tak minat nak cari or tulis dalil penuh... Korang sendiri check dan patut tau... Lagi, "mereka tak kan redha kepada kamu selagi kamu tak ikut cara mereka... ” Camtulah lebih kurang...

Soalan : Tapi niat kami baik…kerana Allah... nak tolong saudara kita...
Jawapan: Niat tak menghalalkan cara... Boleh tak Ella nak buat konsert amal? Niat Ella baik, dia nak kutip derma, nak sumbang kepada Aman Malaysia... Niat oranganizer yang panggil Pussycatdoll untuk buat kosert amal baik sebab dia nak penuhkan tabung Mercy... Boleh tak buat konsert amal wahai muslimin dan muslimat yang diredhai Allah?

Tapi ini fatwa Ulamak terkenal, Al-Qaradhawi... Dr. Asri pun setuju... dia pun pergi demonstrasi dekat UK... Aku pinjam balik kata-kata mereka , ”Ulamak tidak maksum... kadang mereka buat juga silap... Tapi Quran dan sunnah tidak akan silap…Kita mohon keampunan untuk mereka...

Apa pandangan ulamak lain?
Ibn Baaz, Albani dan syeikh uthaimin punya fatwa plak kata demonstrasi dan sewaktu dengannya suatu perbuatan yang mungkar... Tapi yang pasti, tiada dalil dari Al-Quran dan As-Sunnah mengajar kita boikot memboikot dan berdemonstrasi...

Soalan : Bagaimana cara mengikut Quran dan Sunnah?
Jawapan : Ha, ini soalan yang patut korang tanya dulu... Ok, kita balik zaman awal di Mekah... Ramai sahabat diseksa, dibunuh dan lain... Ada yang di depan mata nabi... Even masa Nabi s.a.w. di Madinah, masih ada sahabat r.a. yang tertinggal di Mekah kerana ditangkap dan dihalang oleh kafir Quraish... Mereka diseksa... Apa Nabi s.a.w. buat?

  • Nabi s.a.w. sabar,dan suruh mereka pun sabar... contoh pada keluarga Ammar bin Yasir r.a.
  • Nabi s.a.w. doa untuk mereka... Selalu sangat...
  • Nabi s.a.w. buat Qunut untuk mereka...
  • Nabi s.a.w. habiskan harta dia dan harta khadijah untuk tujuan dakwah... Banyak tau Nabi s.a.w. sedekah...

Apa sahabat buat?
  • Pada yang berkemampuan dari segi ekonomi, bantu mereka dengan wang seperi Abu Bakar r.a. menebus Bilal r.a. dan memerdekakan dia...
  • Abu Bakar r.a. member seluruh hartanya sehingga tinggal Allah dan rasul untuk keluarganya dan baju guni berbutang guni untuk dirinya...
  • Umar r.a. memberi ½ daripada hartanya...
  • Uthman r.a. memberi ¼ daripada hartanya...
  • Abdul Rahman bin Auf r.a. melengkapkan ketenteraan orang Islam ketika itu...
Pada pandangan gua, apa yang perlu kita buat pasal Palestine ni... Oh, mudah sangat... Dah baca apa Nabi s.a.w. buat? Sahabat r.a. buat? Jom copy!!! Sebab semua itu sunnah!!!

  • dermalah sebanyak mungkin... siapa yang ada kereta Harga $30k tu, jual lah... Beli kereta $10k je... lagi $0k hantar ke Palestin... or Yang mana tengah kumpul duit nak beli rumah harga $300k tu, lupakan lah... anta duit $300k ke Palestin...
  • Kita bersabar dan suruh mereka sabar... Gua teringat kata-kata Ahmad, “aku doa dan sabar jela... tak boleh buat apa dah... semua ni jadi atas kelemahan sendiri... ” macam mana nak suruh diorang sabar? Carila kawan-kawan Palestin, suruh dia pesan kat saudara mara dia... korang ade kawan Palestin tak? Kalau yang mampu macam para professional yang kaya raya... pergilah ke Palestin sendiri... dakwahkan mereka tentang sabar... tentang pengharapan hanya pada Allah... bukan pada senjata, bukan pada bantuan dari UN... Katakan pada mereka sesunggahnya hanya Allah sahaja yang berkuasa. Makhluk tiada kuasa...
  • Pergi Palestine, korang jihad sana... Jangan main cakap je jihad sana, jihad sini... Gua ada member mau sponser sesiapa nak pegi jihad... sapa nak bagi nama!
  • Salurkan semangat hangat taik ayam sekarang ni untuk tingkatkan amal kita, jauhi maksiat... Yela, kan kita tengah marah,hati panas pasal bengang ngan Yahudi or US kan? So, gunakanlah samangat tu untuk tingkatkan amal... solat 5 waktu di Masjid,dimana azan diazankan, takbiratul ula, di tempat yang besar jemaahnya... Pastu ketuk pintu semua rumah orang Islam yang tak solat subuh berjemaah especially yang rumah dekat dengan masjid... Ajak mereka pi Masjid... buat dakwah pintu ke pintu... pujuk rayu mereka dengan senyuman... pada 1/3 malam, ko pujuk rayu Allah pulak dengan air mata... Kita usaha sampai dengan rakaat solat kita, boleh selesaikan masalah... kalo dah boleh itu macam, ko doa Israel kalah, sure Israel kalah... huhu...
  • Lepas tu, kita kempen dan amalkan beli barangan orang Islam dulu... kalau nak beli sos, beli la sos aminah hasan... nak beli ubat gigi, beli la mukmin... nak beli prepaid, beli la celcom... nak beli kerete, beli la proton... nak pi mkan, pi kedai Swinging Bowl, bukan pi kedai K-nood... ni gua tengok ade gang yang support boikot, tapi dok melantak kat kedai kapir tu... huhu... oh, kapir tu bukan yahudi ek? ekeke... tapi kalau kapir tu bangkrap, dia takde duit, pastu mati tak makan... kalo orang kapir mati, dia tak beli barang US&Yahudi... sebab kapir ni mana support boikot ni dan mereka tak memandang product orang Islam... hehe... Kalau kita semua dulukan barang orang Islam dulu, kita tak payah nak boikot pon... dalam masa yang sama, kita telah melakukan “jihad” ekonomi... Nak beli barang dapur, pergi ke Pasaraya Maju Basri, bukan ke Carefore, Giant, Woolworth atau Coles... Nak beli daging pun, beli kat kedai orang Islam, bukan kedai James, Faisal Tehrani... Tetiba aku teringat 1 kisah ni, masa aku kat KL dulu, aku ada nusrah Jemaah Saudi... Korang tau kan Saudi tak join boikot ni... Tapi pak arab tu punyalah bagus... Masa aku bawak mereka ke pasar, dia tanya aku, where’s muslim shop? Mase tu dia nak beli sayur je... Aku pusing dengan mereka cari orang Melayu jual sayur... Lepas tu, dia beli semua sayur orang Melayu tu... Abis licin... Yang ni abang aku pulak citer, dia bawak pak arab yang sama tu pergi shopping di KLCC... macam kat pasar juga, dia tanya mana 1 kedai muslim... abang aku kata kat KLCC ni just Nasi Bukhara je muslim... Pak arab seorang ni nak beli boot... So, dia usya semua kedai kasut... Abang aku ingat dia usya boot, rupanya dia usya dalam kedai tu ada pekerja muslim tak... pastu dia cakap, kalau takda kedai Muslim kita cari kedai yang ada pekerja muslim... sebab nanti bos dia bayar gaji kat dia... kalau kedai tu bungkus, mana dia nak kerja... kalau boss dia jenis bagi komisen, dia dapat komisen... Korang boleh buat cam ni tak?
  • Kita muhasabah diri... Kita check diri kita... contoh, check software yang kita guna, pirate or original... kalo guna pirate, ko pencuri... boleh kene potong tangan! Sebab harga software mahal! Bukan free... hahaha... ko dah berdosa... check tengok jeans kita Levis siam ke levis original... pastu check kita ikut sunnah ke tak dalam setiap amalan kita? blablabla... kita kene hindari dosa, baru Allah hantar pertolongan... Kalau Allah tolong kita, kita bolehla jugak tolong orang Palestin...
  • korang tambah sendiri... asal jangan boikot dengan demo sudah…

Soalan : Boleh tak kalau nak boikot jugak?
Jawapan : Boikotlah... Ko yang susah nanti... sebab tak boikot pon bukan dosa... korang tengoklah gua makan KFC nanti... =p Gua ada nasihat untuk orang yang nak boikot jugak...

  • Mesti amal dengan istiqamah... Jangan nak hangat taik ayam... Boikot seumur idup... Jgn nak on off... nak amal jangan ikut nafsu beb... Kalau stakat sebulan bulan, baik tak payah... itu namenye hangat taik ayam...
  • Boikot sampai syarikat tu bangkrap or ko mati before dia bangkrap...
  • Bak mai dalil dari Quran dan sunnah pasal boikot...
  • Yang ni extreme sikit, siape yang belajar di overseas especially negara yang sokong Yahudi... Balik Malaysia skang... hahaha... Sebab korang study kat US, UK, Aussie adalah penyumbang utama kepada ekonomi mereka... Korang bagi duit lagi banyak! So, balik Malaysia! Macam tak boleh belajar je dekat Malaysia! Dr. Asri pon balik Malaysia skarang! Sorry Dr. Asri... I like dengar your kuliah even kadang I tak stuju dengan you... hehehe... UK support Yahudi... Apsal nak bagi duit kat UK... Macam kat negara lain tak boleh belajar... Pergi lah Saudi or Negara Islam lain...
  • Korang kena boikot jugak China!!! Baru adil!!! Baca bawah...

Turkistan

  • Korang tau pasal Turkistan?
  • Turkistan adalah 1 bangsa yang 100% muslim...
  • Mereka telah dijajah oleh China tanpa diketahui oleh secara umum oleh dunia...
  • Orang Turkistan sampai skang dijajah China!
  • Mereka dibom oleh tentera China!
  • Dibunuh!
  • Ditangkap!
  • Ditindas habis-habisan!
  • Tanah mereka dirampas!
Kata seorang warga Turkistan kat aku,"Palestine is better than Turkistan. Atleast the world can know about them. They get many helps from the world but no one knows about Turkistan.”
Korang apa tau? Baru pergi 1 program pasal Turkistan dan berani cakap lebih dengan gua. Apa yang korang boleh buat nak tolong orang Turkistan ni? Ha, since korang boikot US&Yahudi sebab tindas Palestin, korang kena la boikot China sebab tindas orang Islam Turkistan!!! Dalam semua orang Melayu, gualah antara orang yang paling kenal Turkistan... hehe...
Why? Gua takda semangat asabiyah macam orang lain... kawan, grouping dengan gang 1 bangsa je... Gua kawan dengan orang Turkistan... Gua tido dengan orang Turkistan... Gua makan dengan orang Turkistan... Gua makan makanan Turkistan... Gua kerja dengan orang Turkistan... Gua belajar bahasa Tuskistan... Gua tengah planning nak usya minah Turkistan... huhu... ni lawak je... =p
Yang penting gua penah safar 3 hari dengan orang Turkistan... So, gua lagi kenal orang Turkistan... menurut Umar Al-Khatab, jika mahu kenal 1 orang tu, safar dengannya at least 3hari... hehe...

Baru ni... Gua punya kawan punya uncle datang dari Turkistan... Apa dia bagitau?

  • Masa hari raya puasa dan korban, kerajaan China halang mereka untuk buat solat hari raya... diorang tangkap sesiape yang nak organize...
  • Sesiapa yang ajar agama akan ditangkap dan dibunuh... Generasi baru di Turkistan kebanyakkan jahil agama...
  • Orang Islam yang mcm warak sikit especially yang berjanggut, ditahan dan di lokap...
  • If ada yang cuba nak buat group underground nak lawan kerajaan China, 1 family akan dibunuh... Beberapa family telah mati dibubuh beberapa bulan lepas...
  • …arghh... aku tak ingat... pendek kata system mereka lebih sistematik untuk menghapuskan Turkistani di Turskistan dan Islam pada Turkistani...
Kepada gang boikot, sila boikot China jugak ek...
Gua ada soalan... Adakah korang confirm 100% semua syarikat yang korang listkan tu sponser Yahudi untuk bunuh orang Islam? Dekat tanak yahudi ade sticker Nestle ke KFC? huhuhahaha. Coles dan Woolworth pon syarikat Yahudi gak... Apsal takde dlm list? Bias la korang! Tak adil... Print ikut nafsu! kuang kuang kuang…

Ending...

Adakah niat korang makan KFC, beli product Nestle, pakai product buatan Yahudi,US dan China adalah untuk membantu mereka menghapuskan orang Islam?
Aku makan KFC sebab sedap... nyam3... =p

Cuba korang bayangkan kesan negative kalau boikot ni berjaya...
Katakanlah exxonmobil, kfc, mcd, ibm bungkus kt Malaysia... Ekonomi Malaysia turut bungkus kot secara logikanya... Sosioekonomi jugak akan bungkus... Ramai pekerja akan kehilangan pekerjaan... Beribu orang akan menganggur... Warganegara Malaysia yang study kat oversea lepas tu khianat perjanjian sebab takanak balik, nak kerja dekat oversea mungkinlah tak terkesan dengan kebungkusan ekonomi dan sosioekonomi Malaysia... hehe... Bila dah takde kerja, orang Malaysia jadi penyamun, perompak dan pencuri... Oh, negara ku…ku... ku...

Oh, ade ustaz cakap bumi Allah luas, banyak lagi rezeki lain... So, gang boikot, sedekah harta anda kat orang yang fakir seperti seperti aku dan orang Pelestin... Korang buat boikot ni mesti yakin tinggi... =p Nanti Allah ganti dengan lebih banyakkan... Yakin la please... Bende tak kene kat batang idung boley la citer... Cube try test majikan tak masuk gaji tengok... Sponser tak masuk elaun tengok... huhu... Nak bagi fatwa camtu pon, tengok la dulu tahap iman umat akhir zaman ni macam mana... Iman sahabat yang bagaikan syurga dengan neraka jauhnya dengan kita pun, nabi tak suruh boikot... Gua rase kalo nabi suruh sahabat boikot, memang takde hal bagi mereka... pikir beb... lagipon kan ada hadis berbunyi camni, lebih kurang maskud dia camni la... ”permudahkanlah, jangan kamu menyusahkan, sampaikan khabar yang menggembirakan, bukan khabar yang menyusah or mendukacitakan...

Beberapa hari lalu, aku YM dengan member aku sorang ni... aku tanye pasal boikot ni... dia tak jawab... tapi dia cakap... pakcik dia kata, “Kalau orang tempat aku teruskan boikot... kedai runcit aku bungkus la... dahla kedai runcit sekarang ni bukannya untung sangat... diorang boikot pulak barang aku jual…kalau aku bungkus, siape nak bagi anak bini aku makan nanti...?”
Korang nak bagi makan kat anak bini pakcik ni nanti?

P/s : Gua rasa gang boikot ni poyo je... Hangat taik ayam je... Korang tengok la nanti... dah lama sikit... diorang qada balik la makan KFC , Nestle dan lain... Macam boikot yang dulu jugak... Orang US&Yahudi tersengih tengok korang sambil cakap,"nila jela yg diorang mampu buat... lemah sungguh orang Islam... hehehe... diorang boikot sekejap je... kita takyah risau... diorang hot hot chicken shit je... huhuhahaha gelak yahudi!
Wallaualam...

Ahhh... sudah...!

1. Semalam gua meeting dengan supervisor. Meeting yang kritikal sebabnya sebelum ni kami dok prepare nak tulis untuk techical journal. Bahannya nampak macam untuk dua technical papers tapi tak decide lagi sebab masih dalam rangka.

So the last week, gua prepare la dua paper tu. Satu sempat siap jadi draft lagi satu sempat jadi detailed structures. Lepas meeting sejam setengah dengan dua supervisors gua, depa decide boleh jadi 2 papers. Yeaaa... Satu tu definitely akan dihantar ke Journal of Constructional Steel Research.

Ahhh... sudah...! yang pertama, supervisors gua kata ada lagi 3 journal papers kena prepare sampai gua habis nanti (Dec 2009 insyaAllah). Nampak memang best la, dapat produce banyak technical papers tapi preparation, Ya Allah!

2. Ahhh... sudah...! yang kedua, mak mertua gua tak berapa sihat kat kampung. Orang belah wife gua dok tanya bila nak balik, bila nak balik... huhuhu...

3. Ahhh... sudah...! yang ketiga, petang semalam gua dapat telepon dari tuan rumah. Beliau kata rumah nak kena roboh sebab nak bina rumah baru. So dia bagi masa 2 bulan untuk clear the house. (Sebenarnya tuan rumah gua ni baik, tapi maybe cara gua tulis ni nampak macam brutal... tapi sebenarnya tidak - so maafkan gua).

Gua mesorat dengan wife gua diatas ujian-ujian yang dihantar kepada kami ini. Dan kami pun more or less dah buat initial decision. Tapi kami akan bagi cooling off period untuk pikir dalam-dalam sebelum be firm on that decision... Doakan kami.

Lagu sampel: MASTER JEDI

Proses pembikinan lagu untuk band LANGSUYR berkadar dengan teknologi. Dulu kena lepak bawah kuarters, mengajar lagu dengan gitar kapok. Sekarang berbeza dan makin canggih. Semua pakai PC je.

So mudah je, detail aku tak explain cuma lebih kurang je.

1. Dapatkan software untuk merakam instrumen.
2. Dapatkan software untuk program drum tracks.
3. Dapatkan 'interface' untuk channel instrumen ke dalam software dalam (1).

Walaupun kalau nak pakai fully software pun boleh tapi tak METAL la kan? So, kena ada la gitar karan, bass gitar dan juga penting, microphone yang rekoding standard (ada orang pakai earphone je tapi bunyi cenonet le).

Untuk (3) aku gunakan ZOOM G9.2tt guitar multieffects yang build in interface tu. Contohnya, macam ni. Gitar ---> ZOOM ---> notebook. ZOOM jadi medium dan juga pre-processor.

Cara rekod.

1. Sediakan drum track. Kemudian masukkan ke dalam software rekoding.
2. Masukkan bass gitar track.
3. Masukkan gitar track.
4. Masukkan vokal.
5. Mixing/balancing
6. Convert all the above jadi mp3.
7. Hantar kat bandboy. Everyone happy!

So ini ada satu sampel lagu LANGSUYR yang cadangnya nak masuk dalam album BULLET (yang dah setahun siap rekod tapi tak rilis lagi - sila tanya syarikat rakaman CLockwork Records) tapi sebab banyak sangat lagu, maka tersisih la lagu ni. Apapun, inilah sampel yang aku edarkan kepada bandboy yang lain untuk dengar dan bagi komen.

Sila layari sini untuk streaming http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=727810&songID=6006116

Semua instrumen dalam rekoding ni aku yang buat termasuklah vokal (aku tau, suara tak sedap tapi takkan nak suruh Halim BROTHERS nyanyi kot? Mahal kena bayar tu).

Oh ye, jangan lupa tengok sekali liriknya. Best!

MASTER JEDI
Lagu: Bentara
Lirik: Bentara

Bermula al-kisah Luke dan si Yoda
Terganggu dengan firasat Leia
Calrisian ditipu Vader
Nyawa Han Solo yang tercatur

Perangkap yang sudah mengena
Tersenyum puas sang Emperor
Cengkaman yang mengakhiri
Legasi famili terpedaya

Di Hoth pejuang tertewas
Keunggulan Stardestroyer menyerlah

Stormtrooper berhamparan merata
Leia mampu melawan
Dibantu android dan Chewbaca
Bersama Millenium Falcon mereka terbang

Tatkala Luke menentang Vader
Tidak menyangka siapa Dia
Tidak bersedia dengan kenyataan

Light saber bersabung
Menerangkan kegelapan yang menyelubungi
Dua insan yang mempunyai hubungan silam

Luke, akulah bapamu!
Bersama kita menguasai galaksi
Itulah takdir yang ditentukan
Untuk kita berdua

Tidak... kau bukan bapaku
Namun di hati Luke merasakan kegelapan menyelubungi

Imbangan mula terganggu
Dengan peristiwa yang berlaku

Yoda dan Obi-Wan berkabung
Benarlah firasat si tua Emperor

Mungkinkah sejarah Anakin berulang
Menyusuri riwayat legasi Skywalker?
Galaksi gundah gulana
Menangisi si Jedi yang terpedaya

Aad satu lagi lagu dengan tatacara rekoding yang sama boleh download dari sini http://krenmaut.blogspot.com/2008/07/sudahkah-anda-bersedia-dengan-nasyid.html

Seorang sahabat yang lain lebih detail eksplanasinya KAT SINI.

Student foreign legion

Korang tak pernah tanya pun kat gua, apsal gua tak tulis benda-benda berkaitan akademik ataupun industri pendidikan sedangkan gua adalah orang yang terlibat?

Apsal lu orang tak pernah tanya eh? Syok baca Metal je eh... takpe gua start bebel pasal akademik/industri pendidikan OK?

The Advertiser (suratkhabar popular sini) melaporkan hari ini bahawa South Australia punya ekspetasi student foreign akan mencecah 30,000 akhir tahun ni. Ia merupakan nombor terbesar dibandingkan dengan negeri-negeri yang lain dalam Australia. 30,000 tu SATU negeri. Sini ada 6 negeri dan dua mainland territories (entah aku pun tak tau apa).

Ia merupakan 29% penambahan dari tahun 2008 dan adalah di atas average nasional iaitu 25%.

Kalau kat Malaysia macamana agaknya reaksi? Sudah tentu pening kepala kan? Makin banyak Indon la, makin banyak Bangla la, makin banyak Afrikan la, makin banyak Arab la...

Namun tidak begitu di Australia. Semua foreign students dijaga dengan baik. In fact, majoriti dari mereka mudah diterima untuk jadi Permanent Resident (PR) sebaik saja dapat sijil. In fact, memang polisi Australia nak sekat student asing ni terus kerja dan hidup kat Australia.

Sebab utama, human resources memang tak cukup kat sini.

Apapun, bertambahnya student foreign kat sini takde pulak bertambah kadar jenayah. Apsal jadi lain kat Malaysia?

Anyway, dulu tak salah gua Malaysia ada ura-ura nak jadi education bagi negara Arab dan Asia. Tak tau apa cerita. Kalau jadi, setahun katalah 100,000 foreign students datang nak belajar kat IPTA/IPTS. Korang rasa camana?

NROCINU Keamanan CD

NROCINU merupakan sebuah fenomena tempatan. Langkah mulaan mereka dengan susah payah, kurang diterima di kalangan peminat Metal underground tempatan di atas ‘pendekatan’ mereka yang dikatakan terlalu mengikut idola mereka, CROMOK. Tambahan pula nama NROCINU itu sendiri adalah terbalikan Unicorn, sebuah perkataan yang berkait rapat dengan album pertama NROCINU. Mungkin kebetulan tetapi kebetulan yang terlalu sukar untuk dikatakan sebagai accidental.

Namun setelah menjuarai rancangan TV Rock Unite dua tahun lepas, langkah berdikit tersebut nampak menjadi larian pantas. Memenangi bukan sahaja wang tunai RM100K, tetapi ribuan peminat baru hasil dari promosi hebat rancangan tersebut, NROCINU mula bersiap untuk rakaman album pertama, sebagai salah satu hadiah dari rancangan tersebut. Namun beberapa aral melintang, antaranya hadiah wang tunai yang tak kunjung tiba dan album yang tidak siap menyebabkan peminatnya ternanti-nanti. Mungkin ini akibatnya apabila terjun ke dalam ‘kilang’ muzik mainstream.

Keamanan, album pertama NROCINU akhirnya muncul juga. Rakaman yang dijaga oleh otai rock tempatan, Mus (MAY) dan dirakamkan di Sinar Studio ini menampilkan 11 buah lagu yang percaya atau tidak, 100% lagunya dihasilkan oleh NROCINU sendiri! Ini suatu perkara yang menyegarkan apabila memikirkan yang NROCINU bukan lagi sebuah band Metal underground, tetapi sudah memasuki kelompok gergasi muzik tempatan; XPDC, JINBARA, etc.

Musicianship tahap professional. Begitu juga kualiti rakaman yang bagus hasil dari tunjuk ajar producernya. Lagu-lagunya pun well-executed. Metal yang dipamerkan tidaklah seekstrim SIL KHANNAZ ataupun KOFFIN KANSER namun tidak se’popular’ XPDC; menjadikan album ini letaknya antara dua kategori tersebut. Mungkin sedikit sukar untuk mencuri perhatian peminat ekstrim Metal tempatan akibat dari beberapa liriknya yang terlampau radio-friendly seperti Kepuraan, Keliru dan Luahan bahkan ‘menggelikan’ bulu roma seperti Kenangan Di KuiTTHO (huhuhu…). Berontak, satu yang sinonim dengan Metal seakan-akan hilang, menjadikan liriknya seolah-olah ditulis dengan kesedaran bahawa tali leher si korporat sedang memerhatikan. Berontaklah sikit.

Dalam industri muzik mainstream yang berpaksikan duit dan duit lagi, album pertama NROCINU menjadi pertaruhan yang kejam. Jualannya bakal menatijahkan dua resolusi; 1. NROCINU progress dengan natural, terima kasih atas jualan yang memberansangkan atau 2. NROCINU tunduk dengan kehendak ‘pasaran’ yang sejak azali dicucuk hidung oleh tarikan media mainstream. Yang pasti, kelompok underground Metal yang pernah NROCINU sibuk harapkan sokongan tetap berkeras dengan pegangan mereka. Sekali anda berpaling tadah, kepulangan anda tidak diharapkan.

Mungkin menyedari akan itu, tiada bentuk ‘pengiktirafan’ dari NROCINU kepada band-band Metal underground yang pernah mereka kongsi pentas sempit dan lusuh bersama-sama tak berapa lama dulu. Sedangkan menyatakan itu di dalam skrip terima kasih adalah sesuatu yang ‘perlu’ sebagai mesej untuk mengingatkan bahawa kita sama-sama berjuang atas landasan muzik yang sama, walaupun berbeza cabang. Namun, mesej NROCINU adalah jelas, ini langkah ke hadapan dan tiada lagi pandang belakang – selamat tinggal losers!

SIL KHANNAZ Berdiri Antara Panji-Panji CD


Jika disimpulkan bahawa peneraju Metal underground tanahair sekarang ialah SIL KHANNAZ, maka tentu sukar untuk mencari alasan untuk menidakkannya. Sejarah band ini pun sudahmenjangkau 20 tahun. Suatu yang sangat lama jika dibandingkan dengan band jump-in-the-wagon, atau bahasa popular sekarang, band cendawan.

Tetapi lama itu mematangkan. SIL KHANNAZ yang bermula dengan album Conception Of Madness sepuluh tahun dahulu, sudah berumur dengan tenang. Setiap rilisan mereka, jika diperhatikan betul-betul, seusia dengan anggotanya. Mereka tidak berpura-pura 10 tahun lebih muda. Ataupun tidak juga terkesan dengan ‘kehendak’ peminatnya. Sebaliknya, mereka mengarahkan. Itulah yang dikatakan band yang sebenar-benarnya ‘berjaya’. Kerana ‘mendidik’ pendidik itu satu perkara yang sukar. Tanyalah kepada mereka yang bergelar sebagai guru.

Dengan album Berdiri Antara Panji-Panji, SIL KHANNAZ seolah-olah telah mencapai apa yang dikehendakinya. Sesuatu yang boleh dikatakan 100% SIL KHANNAZ. Muzik Metal yang dimainkan, walaupun kekal sebagai muzik yang dipandang serong oleh industri muzik tempatan, namun intipatinya adalah muzik ekstrim Metal tempatan. Ianya tidak terlampau ekstrim, yakni tidak terikut-ikut dengan acuan Barat tetapi pada masa yang sama tidak pula berkompromi dengan nilai-nilai yang dipertahankan selama ini. Dengan lain perkataan, album ini adalah ‘focal’ point untuk dikatakan sebagai ekstrim Metal – Made In Malaysia.

Intravena Tantrika merupakan track mula yang memberi semangat. Melodi gitar melodic melekat yang diselang-selikan dengan belitan tangan kanan si drummernya menyebabkan kita tidak berbuat apa selain mengangguk tanda setuju dengan apa yang dihidangkan. Mastica Ibni Israel pula merupakan satu track yang sinis selari dengan apa yang pernah diutarakan oleh LANGSUYR dengan lagu Sunut – bahkan ini bukan sinis, tetapi memang ditujukan terus ke batang hidung mereka yang berkenaan. Manakan tidak, SIL KHANNAZ merupakan antara band yang paling terkesan dengan fenomena Black Metal tanahair suatu masa dahulu. Ruang tidak diberi maka apa yang lebih berkesan dari menyelitkan kemarahan itu di dalam satu track di dalam album?

Kenapa dan mengapa mereka lekat dengan muzik sebegini dihujahkan dengan baik sekali melalui lagu Teras Besi. Sememangnya muzik sebegini merupakan sesuatu yang berkait dengan cinta dan minat, bukan kerana kekayaan ataupun pengikitirafan. Ini kemudiannya disimpulkan dengan perhubungan rapat antara penggeraknya dengan istilah ‘brothers of Metal’.

Sepuluh buah lagu yang disajikan dalam album ini ialah wajib beli bagi mereka yang mengaku mereka sebagai ‘penggerak’ Metal underground tempatan. Dimanakah lebih patut bajet 1 CD 1 bulan anda jika tidak kepada album ini? Jika ada band yang lebih layak dari ini, mungkin juga kita boleh berkira-kira. Masalahnya tidak ada!

2. Hakikat Dan Seru 04:56
3. Berdiri Antara Panji-Panji 04:45

Tajuk baru dalam perbualan

Sejak dua menjak ni bila borak dengan kawan-kawan, selain dari tajuk utama bertanya khabar etc etc... ada satu tajuk baru yang timbul yang sebelum ni tak pernah timbul.

Cerita pasal blog!

Wife aku pun melaporkan hal yang sama.

Yang tak pernah ada blog, sekarang dah mula memblogging.

Yang garu-garu kepala camana nak hias blog pun ramai juga. Time jumpa-jumpa tu la tanya camana nak buat camtu, camana nak buat camni?

At least kat Adelaide ni situasinya camni la. Tak pasti pulak kat Malaysia camana? Ke dah merebak? Kasi laporan kawasan masing-masing, aku nak kumpul data. Untung-untung boleh buat PhD!

ANTHRAX Among The Living CD

Dulu aku ada topi yang mana depannya aku kelepet ke atas. Di bawahnya ditulis MOSH. Itulah influence dari band Thrash tersohor, ANTHRAX!

Malangnya scene Thrash Metal di Ipoh ketika itu (late 80s - early 90s) kurang bagi perhatian kepada band Thrash Metal US. Yang ada cuma Metallica, other than that, nothing else. Mungkin masa tu, German Thrash Metal lebih popular i.e. Kreator, Destruction dan Sodom.

Tapi aku peminat ANTHRAX sungguh ketika itu. Dengan topi, even pakai seluar beach takat lutut tu. Seorang senior tolak printed shirt ANTHRAX gambar kartun bandboys masa tu, aku pakai dengan bangganya masa daftar kat MRSM Muar nak masuk Form 4 (1991). Mungkin for that reason, aku dapat nickname "Thrash".

Anyway, Among The Living adalah album tersohor ANTHRAX. Dalam poll METAL HAMMER's Thrash special issue, album ni dapat nombor 9 dalam senarai 50 album terbaik. Aku harap dapat tinggi sikit tapi saingan tinggi; SLAYER Reign In Blood (no 1), MEGADETH Rust In Peace etc... OK la tu no 9.

Jangan tanya kenapa aku ada dua CD yang sama tapi tak serupa...

Yang menarik tentang album ni ialah kesemua lagunya catchy. Riffs gitar memang thrash kental. Dan kesemua lagunya memang ditulis untuk stage show, fist flying, headbanging and mosh breaking anthems. Dengan erti kata lain, Thrash Metal in its perfect form. Cuma satu komplen, panjang sangat (lebih 5 minit) dan aku terpikir-pikir, jenuh juga dalam show ketika tu mamat yang pergi gig nak banging.

Bila selak di wikipedia baru perasan yang album ini didedikasikan kepada mendiang Cliff Burton (METALLICA). Memang ramai orang sayang mendiang ni. Selain ANTHRAX, Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH) juga mendedikasikan lagu In My Darkest Hour (So Far, So Good... So What!) kepada mendiang.

Show dalam tour album ni pun gila best. Aku pernah memiliki videotape (Speedy Video), tour ANTHRAX ketika album ni. Of course, sekarang dah hilang ke mana. Kalau tak hilang pun, sure berkulat (maklumlah, videotape). Antara lagu yang aku ulang-ulang tengok dalam video tu, Caught In A Mosh.

Highlight show tu sudah pastinya Scott Ian (gitaris). Masa tu aku rasa dialah paling menggila atas pentas. Tak pasti sekarang usia dah lanjut masih agresif ke tak macam dulu.

1. "Among the Living" (Anthrax) – 5:16
2. "Caught in a Mosh" (Anthrax) – 4:59
3. "I Am the Law" (Anthrax, Danny Lilker) – 5:57 <-- lagu sempena watak komik Judge Dredd 4. "Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.)" (Anthrax) – 4:54 5. "A Skeleton in the Closet" (Anthrax) – 5:32 6. "Indians" (Anthrax) – 5:40 7. "One World" (Anthrax) – 5:56 8. "A.D.I./Horror of It All" (Anthrax) – 7:49 9. "Imitation of Life" (Anthrax, Lilker) – 4:22 Oh nak tau kenapa Dan Spitz (gitaris) quit main dengan ANTHRAX? Beliau mahu meneruskan minat kembar beliau, iaitu pembikin jam KAT SINI.

MEGADETH Megabox Single Collections CD (Japan)


Lama dah perhati boxset ni kat eBay. Tapi masa tu tak berduit. Tiba-tiba satu hari tu, berduit pulak. Apa lagi, bid sampai maksimum yang ada kat Paypal huhuhu... Nasib baik ending bid tak berapa tinggi.

Boxset ni special dalam banyak hal. Salah satunya, ia hanya dirilis di Jepun. Kat negara lain takde rilis. Collectors pasti tau nilai rilisan 'rare' dari Jepun ni. Especially yang limited edition.


Dalam boxset ni ada alat tulis Megadeth hehehe... Kenapa alat tulis, aku pun tak tahu. Adakah kerana peminat di Jepun kebanyakannya pelajar sekolah/universiti? Diberi pensel mekanikal, pemadam (yang hitam tu) dan pembaris segitiga. Aku try tulis pakai mekanikal pensel tu. Yes it works! Tapi sorry la nak pakai (anak aku dah mintak nak pakai masa aku bukak pakej ni depan dia). Sorry bud, next time I'll buy one from BigW.


Then, booklet yang setebal 52 m/s. Dalam rilisan Jepun ni, kadang-kadang kita harap dapat baca Jepun sebab biasanya ia ditulis dalam bahasa Jepun. Dalam booklet ni sendiri, lebih separuh ditulis dalam Jepun. Lirik ditulis both English dan Jepun. Lepas tu ada additional liner notes untuk setiap lagu; malangnya ditulis dalam Jepun je... huhuhu...

Kalau pikir dari segi memperkenalkan Megadeth kepada new fans, memang bagus la. Very detail (dari pemerhatian aku) tulisan Jepun tu menulis. Even sejarah Megadeth pun ada dalam booklet tu. Kronologikal pulak tu!


Gambar tak berapa menarik. Gambar band yang biasa je.


Lirik yang ditranslate. Amacam? Terjemah lirik ni dalam Bahasa Melayu.


Next, sticker band members. Takdenya nak tampal weh!


Now the real content. Actually, aku tak kejar CD singles ni sangat. Freebies tu yang penting. Sebabnya, banyak CD singles yang aku dah ada pun. Beza cuma probably tracklisting yang berbeza.

Yang aku perhati, walaupun diberi 5 CD, yang sebenarnya setiap CD singles tu cover 2 singles. Contoh gambar atas tu, Wake Up Dead singles dan Mary Jane singles 2 in 1. Untungnya, setakat yang aku tau, singles dua ni tak pernah dirilis dalam bentuk CD. Yang ada probably 7" dan 12" record je. So kira rare jugak la ni. Only rilis in Japan dan dalam Megabox ni je!

Disk one:

1. Wake Up Dead
2. Good Mourning/Black Friday (live)
3. Devil's Island (live)
4. Mary Jane
5. Hook in Mouth
6. My Last Words

(Live tracks were recorded for the Tommy Vance Show on Radio One in London, in 1986)



Disc 2 pulak consist of tracks dari single Anarchy in the UK dan No More Mr. Nice Guy. Anarchy in the UK ni pun tak pernah rilis dalam bentuk CD kat mana-mana. Lagu Liar (Penipu) tu best. Dia kutuk bekas gitaris dulu yang dituduh banyak mencuri harta band hehehe...

Disk two:

1. No More Mr. Nice Guy
2. Anarchy in the UK
3. Liar
4. 502


Disc ketiga menampilkan singles dari album tersohor mereka, Rust In Peace. Artwork menarik ada macam nak lawan Eddie (IRON MAIDEN). Unfortunately, lepas-lepas ni dah takde sangat gambar Rattlehead ni.

Disk three:

1. Holy Wars... The Punishment Due
2. Lucretia
3. Interview with Dave Mustaine [BACA TRANSKRIP KAT SINI]
4. Hanger 18 (AOR Edit)
5. Hanger 18
6. The Conjuring (live)
7. Hook in Mouth (live)

(Live tracks were recorded at the Wembley Arena, London, October 14, 1990)


Disc 4 pula menampilkan singles dari album Countdown To Extinction iaitu Sweating Bullet dan Foreclosure of a Dream. Sweating Bullet ada diulas DI SINI.

Disk four:

1. Symphony of Destruction
2. Peace Sells (live)
3. In My Darkest Hour (live)
4. Foreclosure of a Dream
5. Symphony of Destruction (Gristle Mix)
6. Holy Wars... The Punishment Due (General Schwarzkopf Mix)

(Live tracks were recorded at the Cow Palace, San Francisco, December 4, 1992)


CD terakhir jumpa menampilkan singles dari album Countdown To Extinction. Maklumlah, album paling laku, so promote lebih sikit. Pakej istimewa Skin O' My Teeth ada diulas DI SINI.

Disk five:

1. Skin O'My Teeth
2. Lucretia (live)
3. Skin O'My Teeth (live)
4. Sweating Bullets
5. Sweating Bullets (live)
6. Ashes in Your Mouth (live)
7. Countdown to Extinction (live)

(Live track 2 was recorded at the Music Theatre, Alpine Valley, Wisconsin, May 23, 1992)
(Live tracks 3, 5-7 were recorded at from the Cow Palace, San Francisco, December 4, 1992)

Untuk keseluruhan list CD singles MEGADETH yang aku ada/sedang cari, sila layari DI SINI.

Trip Australia Pt 5: Sydney Aquarium

Ni dah part 5. Untuk siri sebelumnya boleh rujuk SINI.

Sydney Aquarium adalah destinasi seterusnya. Kami beli tiket sekeluarga untuk dua venue. Package. Lagi satu venue, kena tunggu Part 6.

Hari ni ramai juga orang kat sini walaupun weekdays. Mungkin sini memang tourist spot kot? Sibuk sungguh.

Sumaiyyah ni kalau ramai-ramai dia pemalu. Bila tinggal dengan aku je baru la nampak keceriaannya. Gambar tu dia tengah perform specialty dia, spin! Spin... spin... spin...

First time nengok kapal salam parking... hehehe...

Sydney Aquarium ni macam kat KLCC tu la. Cuma pada pendapat aku, kat KLCC tu lagi cantik kot. Mungkin sebab Sydney Aquarium is amongst first of its kind banding kat KLCC yang 'baru'. Mungkin dari lokasi Sydney Aquarium lagi autentik sebab memang tepi laut sedangkan kat KLCC tu tengah-tengah bandaraya KL.

Gambar kat dalam ni manjang tak jadi sebab dim light. Susah nak cari yang menjadi. So sori la gambar tak berapa cun.

Penguin terkecil di dunia.

Ikan bilis? Ataupun spesies yang sama... sebabnya, kecil dan halus.

Ni namanya kura-kura... (sotong la...)

Ni on the way masuk ke aquarium yang ikan berenang atas kepala tu...

Punya la ramai orang tengok. Weekdays tu hehehe... Diorang tak jalan pun. Statik kat situ sambil menikmati pemandangan atas kepala.

Jaws!!! Jerung memang wujud kat Australia ni. Kalau ada nampak kat mana-mana beach, suratkhabar akan bagi warning tentang sighting tu. Sebabnya, banyak kes kematian/kecederaan kena baham dengan makhluk Allah s.w.t. ni.

Ni namanya sotong... (penyu daaa...)

Ikan pari besar gila. Lebar satu depa ni. Boleh jamu makan 20-30 orang kot. Panggang dengan sambal. Slurrpp... yummy!

Cun eh? Gambar tak cun tapi the real sight memang cun.


Next Part 6: Sydney dot dot dot...

100 himpunan amalan-amalan sunat dari hadis sahih

Kalau tak mampu nak amal semua, ambil la 4-5 yang senang untuk diamal. Dah terer amal yang 4-5 tu, boleh upgrade lagi iaitu tambah lagi 4-5... Doakan aku sekali ye supaya aku pun dapat amal...

Ilmu tanpa amal tiada manfaatnya. Untuk karkun, banyak juga adab dalam ni yang boleh boleh dirujuk masa buat muzakarah adab tu.

100 Established Authentic Sunan!

1. Sleeping on Wudu The Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam told al-Baraa` bin ‘Aazib, radiallahu ‘anh, If you go to your bed, then do your wudoo` (ablution) as you would do it for prayer, then lie on your right” [Agreed upon, No. 6311.]

2. Reading Surat al-Ikhlas, al-Falaq and an-Nas before sleeping: From ‘Aishah radiallahu ‘anha, the Messenger, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam used to recite “Qul huwallahu ahad”, “Qul a’oothu birrabilfalaq” and “Qul a’oothu birrabinnaas” every night when he went to sleep, then wiped his face and whatever he was able from his body, beginning with his head and face, and what faces him from his body, three times”. [al-Bukhari: 5017]

3. Doing takbeer and tasbeeh when going to sleep: ‘Ali, radiallahu ‘anh narrates that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam said when Fatimah asked him for a servant, “Shall I not lead you to that which is better for you than a servant? If you go to your mattresses, or rest to sleep, then say Allahu Akbar thirty-four times, and say subhan Allah thirty-three times, and say alhamdulilah thirty-three times, for they are better for you than having a servant” [Agreed upon: 6318 & 6915]

4. Supplicating when awoken from sleep: ‘Ubadah bin as-Saamit, radiallahu ‘anh narrates that the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam said: “Anyone awoken in the night and says: Laa ilaha illa Allah, wahdatu laa shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul hamd, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay`in qadeer, alhamdulilah was-subhaan Allah, wallahu akbar, wa laa hawla wa laa quwata illa billah, then said, Allahumma aghfirli or invoked Allah, he will be answered, and if he does ablution and prays, his prayer will be accepted” [al-Bukhari 6313]

5. Supplicating once awake with the following supplication: Alhamdulilah alathee ahyaanaa ba’da maa amatana, wa ilayhin-nushoor (Praise be to Allah Who granted us life after death, and to Him we will be ressurected) [al-Bukhari, 6312, from Huthayfah bin al-Yamaan, radiallahu 'anh]

6. Rinse water and sniff in one go: ‘Abdullah bin Zayd, radiallahu ‘anh narrates that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam said: “Rinse water in your mouth, and sniff it with one hand (in one go” [Muslim:555]

7. Ablution before Ghusl: ‘Aishah, radiallahu ‘anha narrates that the Prophet of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam: “Used to, if he wishes to wash from janaabah (complete impurity), began by washing his hands, then would do ablution as he would for salah, then he would enter his fingers into the water, and would touch the roots of his hair with it, then would pour (water) over his head with his palms, and then would let water cover his entire body” [al-Bukhari: 248]

8.
