It's all good, even when its not

The train arrived at the platform. An electronic board gave its destination: Klang.

"Nice, the one after this must be heading to seremban"

Then the next one came. There's something about these new trains, maybe its the air conditioning, maybe its the comfortable seats, or maybe its the (now reduced) political propaganda, they just make you want to doze off the moment you sit down.

Im too embarrassed to set off a wake-up alarm in the train, so i hold on to a simple philosophy: allah will wake you up when its time.

As soon as i woke up,i went out to see...that i had arrived in batu tiga. (My actual train was supposed to go to serdang, but arriving in batu tiga meant that i took the train to port klang instead. So i had to ride a train back to KL and take another train heading to serdang)

Husnuszhan (making good assumptions) about why that happened:

- there was a serial killer weaving a butcher's knife in the actual train, so i was spared his madness.

- a man forgot to wear deodorant on the actual train, and i was spared his, err, lack of fragrance.

- my rizq (provisions) of food for the day happened to be in Kl sentral

Nevertheless, i now know how to blog on the train.yay! So everything really is good for the believer.

Sekiranya dia diberikan sesuatu yang menggembirakan lalu dia bersyukur, dan sekiranya apabila dia ditimpa kesusahan lalu dia bersabar. Maka kebaikan baginya” (Riwayat Muslim)
