Qurban = Get Closer to Allah

Salaam.. 
Alhamdulillah I was attending Ayat bil ayat recitation with gorgeous ladies of Hijabers Tasikmalaya and Kang Ipay as presenter. Kang Ipay was super great. He conveyed the knowledge about Qurban very well and it's very easy to understand.

Here I resume some points to learn and practice:
  • All this time, we think Qurban is all about sacrificing animal. Whereas Qurban is only a symbol to 'kill' our love for worldly things.
  • If we are hard for giving or sedekah to another, it means we're kind of shirk people and Allah won't grant their prayers. Naudzubillah. So, shirk is actually not only leaving Allah.
  • Doing bad action to our parent is also kind of shirk and shirk people are impure. 
  • The most substantial thing for us to take for hajj pilgrimage is having God Fearing and someone who has God Fearing is just like the one who has performed hajj.

Let's get closer to Allah by killing our love for everything but Him :)

For Formal Occasion

I'm actually not professionally hijab stylist. But in this time, I just wanna share about how to use pashmina glossy that I sell. Here the steps:

1. Kenakan inner ninja.
2. Pakai pashmina glossy dengan ujung kiri lebih pendek daripada ujung kanan.
3. Sematkan jarum paku bagian pelipis kanan dan kiri
4. Ambil ujung kanan yang lebih panjang dan tarik lewat belakang sehingga berada di posisi kiri.
5. Lipat ke atas melewati pelipis kiri.
6. Rapikan sisi kanan dan kiri dengan jarum paku
7. Sisa pashmina di sebelah kanan, rapikan dengan menariknya ke bagian kiri.
=selesai=
(tampak belakang)
Hope you can easily practice this at home :)

Breakfast and Lunch

I think, it's a big lie when we're continuously working of the same routine and we don't feel bored. Workplace boredom can be as stressful and damaging as overwork. Perhaps more so. If you've been feeling bored with your work, you're not alone. 

Lately, I'm not engaged at work. I just don't belong here. Working as journalist is very me indeed but by the time I realize that's not my passion. I may be good at work but that's not the job I enjoy the most. There's sometimes a mismatch between me and the system. 

I've identified my passion, had values, and known the purpose of my life. Another big dream await to be realized. I don't wanna waste my time to do something that doesn't bring me happiness and (the most important is) comfort. 

Until the time comes, I always try to enjoy and do my best. By the way, this is the quote of Dahlan Iskan for my 'breakfast'. Hehehehe ;P

My big choice fortunately has not been settled =D
And this tenderloin steak is for my lunch

brrrrrr ;p
Bismillah. Bismillah. Bismillah.
I do realize that there's no growth in the comfort zone and there's no comfort in the growth zone and I have to leave my comfort zone to keep growing :)
