Khalifah Institute Dinner And Talk

I was enjoying my dinner.

On March 26, 2011 or 21 Rabiulthani 1432, I went to Khalifah Institute‘s ‘Dinner & Talk’.

The event was held at the Dewan Perdana Felda, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The talk was entitled, ‘Do Your Best’, by Bro Idris Tawfiq.

Bro Tawfiq is a British Muslim writer who now lives in Egypt.

[Here is his blog – http://idristawfiq.com/]

This is the second time I met Bro Idris Tawfiq.

Bro Idris Tawfiq and me before the event.

I first met him in 2009.

I also met Uncle Ustaz ‘Uthman El-Muhammady, who was one of the guests of honour.

Uncle Ustaz 'Uthman El-Muhammady sits on the left of Bro Idris Tawfiq.

Over there I helped my father to set up the camera and distribute the flyers of a new book, ‘A Map of  Trengganu’ (AMoT).

I was busy helping my father.

I also help the volunteers to pack things up after the program.

A Map of Terengganu is written by Awang Goneng or Uncle Wan Ahmad Hulaimi.

It is a sequel to the best seller, ‘Growing Up in Trengganu’ (GUiT).

I reached home at around 12:48 AM 🙂

I was very tired but I could not sleep until almost 2 AM 😉

Anti-Nuclear Protests In Tokyo And Seoul-Photos

I think that nuclear power is very dangerous.

Nuclear power is very dangerous because if there is an accident at the power plant, it can cause nuclear radiation like what is now happening in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Nuclear radiation is dangerous because the effect can be something like the effect of a nuclear weapon or an atomic bomb.

And if a nuclear power plant exploded, it can be as bad as being hit by an atomic bomb.

Nuclear power plant is an efficient and clean way to produce electricity but it can also become a disaster of mass destruction that can kill and harm lots and lots of people, animals and plants.

It will take a very, very long time to get rid of the nuclear radiation from the atmosphere, soil and the water system.

Go Green 🙂

I think we should use more wind turbine and solar power to produce electricity.

South Korea, a major global supplier of nuclear plants, will carry on with its nuclear plans despite the crisis at a quake-hit nuclear complex in nearby Japan, a government minister said on Monday. Nuclear power accounts for 31.4 percent of South Korea's electricity generation needs, and the world's fifth-largest oil importer has a target to increase that to 48.5 percent by 2024. It has 7 reactors under construction, with plans to build 6 more and bring to 34 the number on-stream by 2024. REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak

A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit Myanmar on Thursday night.

I read in Yahoo News that Myanmar state radio announced Friday that 74 people had been killed and 111 injured in the quake, but was updating the total frequently.

This is the latest disaster that hit Myanmar.

Myanmar is also known as Burma.

A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit Myanmar on Thursday night, March 24, 2011.

Myanmar is also known as Burma.

This is a disaster.

The earthquake was centered at the north of the town Tachileik in the mountain along the Thai border.

The quake was felt in Bangkok And Hanoi.

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand while Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam.

Myanmar state radio announced Friday that 65 people had been killed and 111 injured in the quake.

It also said that 244 houses, 14 Buddhist monasteries and nine government buildings were damaged.

Road and bridges  were also damaged.

In Chiang Rai, Thailand, a woman was killed and some people were injured by the earthquake.

Cracks were found in buildings including the hospital and the city hall.

On Friday, March 11, 2011 a magnitude 9.o earthquake and tsunami hit Japan.

I am very sorry and sad for all the victims, their families and friends.

The CAL 2

Please click here for ‘The CAL’ Part 1.


Written and illustrated by Ahmad Ali.

————————————————-

The CAL managed to defend Calovinia from Arguay. The king of Calovinia was very happy. The king asked his servant named Urban to give The CAL a few bags of gold and golden coins and also three holiday tickets to the White Chestnut Beach.

White Chestnut Beach

At the White Chestnut Beach, they met Kolilama the purple monkey. When it’s time to go back home, The CAL invited Kolilama for a sleep over at their office in Vateli Street, Calovinia.

The next day Meranda went on a secret mission to the moon. During her mission she discovered  a new planet. Meranda named the new planet Zackron.

Planet Samanine (left) and Planet Zackron (bottom right). Zackron's moons named Honti (middle), Peddol (above left Zackron). Sackremin (above right) was the biggest star around Planet Zackron.

After her mission was over, she called the others and brought them up to Planet Zackron. Bek took a picture of the new planet and gave it to a newspaper reporter. The reporter worked for a popular newspaper named ‘Smeilys’. The reporter came to their office to interview Meranda about Planet Zackron.

The next day, Lia went out to buy ‘Smeilys’. On the front page of ‘Smeilys’, The CAL saw the picture and the news of Planet Zackron. They were very happy.

The news about Planet Zackron was on the front page of 'Smeilys'. 'Smeiys' was a very popular newspaper in Calovinia.

 

The End 🙂

 

Las Manos Magicas

I like to perform magic tricks like my big sister Kaman.

Anyway I was always upset because Kaman would not teach me the tricks 🙂

So I was very excited the first time I watch ‘Las Manos Magicas’.

I watch ‘Las Manos Magicas’ on NTV7.

‘Las Manos Magicas’ means ‘The Magic Hands’.

The show teaches us how to do magic tricks.

I read in the internet that ‘Las Manos Magicas’ is originally in Spanish but now it is translated to other languages and in English the show is named ‘With The Magic Hands’.

The first episode that I watched was a trick to make a coin ‘disappear’.

In Malaysia, Las Manos Magicas is aired daily on NTV7 from 8:30 to 8:31 am.

I like to watch the show because it teaches me how to do simple and interesting magic tricks 🙂

The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguin of Madagascar.

I watch ‘The Penguins of Madagascar’ on TV3.

The story is about four penguins going on adventures.

I love to watch ‘The Penguins of Madagascar’ because it is so funny.

At first the four penguins usually lose to their nemesis; but after that they’ll try very hard and they’ll win.

The first time I watched The Penguins of Madagascar’, I thought that it was the ‘Madagascar 2’.

The first episode that I watched was ‘Roger Dodger.

In Malaysia, ‘The Penguins of Madagascar’ is aired on TV3 every Saturday at 9:30 AM.

The protagonist of this TV show is Skipper.

Skipper is the leader of the group and who plans of how to solve problems that they face in their adventures.

The deuteragonist is Kowalski.

Kowalski helps Skipper to analyse the situation, draw plans and invent things in solving problems.

Rico is the tritagonist.

Rico’s job is to keep and carry useful things.

He swallows them and keep the things safe until Skipper needs them.

Anyway, sometimes when Skipper asks for something very important like a torchlight, Rico’ll give him silly things like playing card or a torch light.

And the second tritagonist is Private.

Private doesn’t have any specific role so he’ll do anything that Skipper asks him to do. He is very friendly with King Julien, the lemur.

 

Skipper
Kowalski
Private
Rico

Other characters in the stories are:

  1. Marlene
  2. Maruice
  3. Mort
  4. King Julien

Aftermath Of Japan’s Earthquake And Tsunami In Photos

Reports said that more than 10,000 people died after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and a huge tsunami hit Japan on March 11, 2011.

I am very sad to see the aftermath photos of the disaster.

It must be very hard for the victims.

Most of them lost almost everything including their families and friends.

I hope they will be strong and may tomorrow be a better day for all of us.

And we should learn a lesson from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Disaster.

So we should not be greedy and we should build more huge wind turbines and wind farms to produce electricity.

Do not destroy our Earth and Go Green.
