…strength of mind can be stronger than you think

= About the Writer =


SUBTLE_FORTITUDE: unexpected inner strength to endure pain (physical, emotional, spiritual pain) … Names are du’as, hence this is what I pray to gain, InshaALLAH…

The world’s becoming a tough place to live in, and inner strength is what’s needed to be strong…


I’m a girl whose lived in two different worlds and trying to utilize  my experiences and perspectives being in both lands in a never-ending search for TRUTH.  My main goal in life:  To gain ALLAH’s supreme blessings.


No need for a long biography… 🙂

AGE: 24

LOCATION:  Kelantan, Malaysia

PLACE OF BIRTH: Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA

I am a TESLian.

(that does give me some credibility doesn’t it? 🙂 )


I’ve discovered that it’s my deepest passion in endeavoring this field.

EDUCATION is the root in developing our own people (MALAYSIANS – yes, that includes the Malays, Chinese, Indians, and others of this country) as civilized people… Is it not? –> Education comes in different forms – we’re surrounded by it. It all begins on how we educate all layers of society.

Yup! that’s us: you, me, the Government.

I also like to observe people –> personalities, habits, interests, etc….

oh, and one other detail (just incase you didn’t catch it from my entries)…

I’m a Muslim American-born Malaysian! 🙂

    Thumb up for another Malaysian! It is rightfully said that at this time of the century, we should not be racist but should open our mind to be just MALAYSIAN. Just look at USA how advance they are…gone were the days of racist in USA…there are only Americans in USA. Likewise there should only be Malaysian in Malaysia if we want to progress. Otherwise carry on living under the coconut shell lahh….FOREVER!

  2. True, my friend, true…

    Islam doesn’t teach us to be racists. You know what, when I was in the US, although I wore a scarf (hijab) and looked a bit different from my fellow peers, I was still considered a part of them, yes an ‘American’. My friends, teachers never discriminated me for who I am, what I wore, my stands in life. And over there, there was no difference AT ALL between a black and a white, and an Asian (among my circle of friends that is). But here, if a person is a bit dark-skinned, they are sometimes bound to be called names. Which is sad.

    That’s one positive thing we can learn from the Americans. I’m still proud to be a MALAYSIAN!! 😀

    …Education of the young – formal and informal – can help change all this. It can start from the home.
