This probably it.

I think this is probably one of my purposes. Fixer. Have you ever thought why sometimes you had to go through so much be it bad or good compared to others? Well in my opinion it is so that you have enough to help others. It feels good. I’m not saying that I have everything it takes, but maybe I have a bit more. Who knows. Here goes.

Purpose.

It feels like forever since my last post.

Life has been busy. Or at least it was me who jumped into matters which consumed so much of my personal time. What for? I was looking for a purpose.My purpose was looking for the ultimate purpose. Did I find it? I did and in fact it has been there since Allah knows when but it was made oblivious due to my own oversights.

This ultimate purpose has its own way of linking itself to everything that I do. All the time. I am glad that it works how it works.

This ultimate purpose is endearing, enlightening, empowering. This has been my strength. The fuel for my ambitions. The force which pushes me everytime I run, the spirit which holds me up whenever I fight for a cause.

The ultimate purpose. Just hold on a little longer. I will take us there. Just please don’t stop being my ultimate purpose. I will take us there.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri dan Maaf Zahir Batin.

Picturesque Words.

How can words be picturesque? When there’s nothing that those eyes could see? The answer: When those words stirred wonderful emotions. When they invoked wishful thinking, utopian ambitions. In a world conquered by emotionless machines, emotionless corporate system i.e. flying birds, computers, gadgets, politics etc, these words brought out the humanity from beings who are mono-toned by routines,  necessities to advance to the next level in life or even to feed hungry mouths.

A few months ago, I discovered a person by the name of Khalil Gibran. His quotes were different. What do I mean by different? I’ve read a lot of quotes, and I have to say not many of them would draw me in as Khalil’s did, some were simply exhibiting usage of bombastic words to explain the simplest element of life or its motivation. My preference might be different than yours. So read his quotes and ask yourself. This is where I go to when my memory couldn’t recall those picturesque words ->Khalil Gibran’s Quotes . My personal favourite would be “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. ~Khalil Gibran”

I believe.

When I first joined APR, my training school before I became an engineer, Mr Amirruddin told me, when an aircraft engineer talks, he would try his best to avoid the phrase ‘I think’. An aircraft engineer must know what he is talking about and therefore must first learn and understand what he is going to talk about, what he is going to convey. Hence he emphasized the phrase ‘I believe’. I believe that such defect have certain causes. I believe the repetitive fault codes are pointing to a common snag which is yet to be documented and et cetera. When an aircraft engineer lies, he puts lives in dangers which almost certain would cause fatalities.

*****

I believe humans are born good.

I believe humans prefer to do good.

I believe we are all capable of achieving our dreams provided we are willing to do what it takes.

I believe that there are no born losers.

I believe that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I believe that there is always a peaceful solution to a conflict.

I believe that Allah looks after those who remember Him.

In chasing my ambitions, I have only me and the Almighty. I believe in Him and I believe in me.

Never stop believing.

Room for a busy mind.

It has been close to 2 weeks since I first started my new job function. So far so good. I am getting more and more motivated as each day passes by. I am trying to catch up with all the knowledge that this industry has to offer. A very demanding task for the body and the mind that I could hardly think of any personal wants. In a way, that’s good. I am less dreamy and more in touch with the reality of who I really am. But, I do feel distanced from one of my favourite past time activities. Writing. Writing meaningful passages.

Also reading. I need to allocate some time for non-work related reading. Novels, stories. They help a lot in improving how I write and what I write.

Till meaningful passages flourish again. Have a wonderful life everyone.

Happy Mothers’ Day.

I am not ashamed to admit that I choke everytime I listen to this song. Powerful lyrics.

A song for Mama by Boyz II Men

You taught me everything
And everything you’ve given me
I always keep it inside
You’re the driving force in my life, yeah
There isn’t anything
Or anyone I can be
And it just wouldn’t feel right
If I didn’t have you by my side
You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You’ll always be you always will be the girl
In my life for all times

Chorus:
Mama, mama you know I love you
Oh you know I love you
Mama, mama you’re the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin’ you is like food to my soul
You’re always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did
And you took up for me
When everyone was downin’ me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on
There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You’ll always be
You will always be the girl in my life
Chorus

Au revoir…

On Thursday, one of the expat engineers came to the QA office to bid farewell to us and to the aviation world. “That’s it for me I guess, I’m done with the aviation. Time for me to go back to my family in Canada”. He’s 65 years old.

I couldn’t believe what I heard. I’ve never thought of leaving the aviation industry. When I was in diploma, I told myself, once you’re in aviation, you could never leave it. It is an industry developed and inspired by passion unlike any other. “Come on Bob, you’re only 65!” my boss told him. He just chuckled a bit, “Nah, I wanna go back to be with my family”.

Leaving the aviation…Those 3 words struck me in a place that was rarely struck. I looked at my boss and uttered,”Wow”. He just shrugged his shoulder. “All the best with your future endeavour Bob”, I said to him whilst shaking his hand. The grip was inspiring and in a way saddening. The grip was as if it spoke of this message, “Son, my time is up, you are the future of aviation, if not the world, then maybe here, where your heart and home is”.

I love aviation so much. It’s a world which lifted me away from the pains in my past life and it created a stronger new me, capable of facing challenges in whatever form they wanted to come. I could always turn to aviation for hope, and strength. For that, I’m forever bound to it.

Au revoir Bob, merci for everything you have done for the aviation industry…

Nemequittepas. The English translation for the title of this song is “Don’t Leave Me”.
