Syaja... You ada delivery ye kat depan...

Bukan 1, bukan 2, tapi 3 buku Pramoedya. Though it is not The Mute Soliloqui, but I'm not complaining :p

It is a pleasant surprise to see the parcel I received not in a box (since I'm expecting delivery from supplier as well). So, straight away tersengih2 sebab dah tau what I'll be having!

Even better when I realize I receive not just 1, or 2, but 3 Pramoedya. Woohoo... And when Ibu Adam come back from Singapore, it will add up to 4 books to gobble.

Special thanks untuk Encik Famil (in fact thanks sgt2), for spending some times to search for the books (though the toko buku sebesar ATM kiosk, is it?). Couldn't say anything more... SUKE... :)

YOGA Haramization

I might be conservative in a way, but yea... guess a lil bit liberal...

I just can't understand how they can haramize the Yoga but, they couldn't arrest AYAH PIN which for me clearly deviate from the teaching.

Yoga is basically a form of exercise, like chi qong, tai chi (to name a few). It always when the practitioner want to climb the higher spirit of it, they start to recite weird chanting, mantra, and stuff like that. There are many muslim out there practicing Yoga, neglecting the chanting. Does this makes Yoga haram?

Even silat have the mandi bunga, mandi minyak rituals and all sort of doubtness. Why it is not been HARAMIZED? Not to include "Pendamping" and stuff.

Prevention is better that cure. True. But, instead banning/ haraming the exercise, why not implementing other measures (FIRST, before implementing the haramization) that feed the same purpose like;
1. Educate people about Aqidah
2. Educate people about Solah
3. Create new stylish exercise (well, we like to be in trend :p)
4. Or prepare muslim yoga / exercise center (without mantra / chanting)
On point no. 1 and 2, I bet many don't understand the secret behind every posture during Solah. Solah, is also a source of exercise. Every step lies spiritual and physical meaning (some of the yoga posture, macam posture solah).

This kind of information should be shared so that everybody would perform the 5 times prayers plus the sunnah with spiritual and scientific understanding. Kalau tak, tak kan la kite jumpe ramai yang puasa tapi tak sembahyang. why? simply sebab puasa bole kurus... lol

Bukan la pulak nak mengajak orang sembahyang untuk exercise sahaja, but not everybody see things from the same point of view. sometimes, we could not agree even in one small minor thing. So, mulakan dengan yang mudah, lama kelamaan, dedahkan kepada yang lebih dalam.

It just my 2 cent. maybe 50 cent. I like yoga, as much i like tai chi and chi qong. this haramization is quite shocking since banyak lagi mende perlu diharamkan.

Additional notes:
1. Give alternative version of yoga, says Perlis Mufti

2. Hope the haramization process, goes parallel with the process of enhancing Muslim awareness about Aqidah. Once we all understand the same baseline, then the implementation of haramization will give effect.

Book Review: Saya Terbakar Amarah Sendirian

Tittle: Saya Terbakar Amarah Sendirian
By: Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Andre Vltchek, and Rossie Indira

Special review for FJ.

For those been reading Pak Pram's book, there is nothing new in this tittle. It is more like a recap for his previous works, narrated in form of discussion by Pak Pram, Andre Vltchek, and Rossie Indira.

It just a bit of here and there of his general thinking about KUDETA 1965, pembentukan & kemusnahan budaya di Indonesia, a lil bit bout regim Soeharto, how Soekarno dijatuhkan... And of coz, future.

Nothing much elaborated in details bout his idea, unlike his other books. But then,for beginners like me, this book is sufficient to help me to have general idea bout who he was and what he was thinking.

I think whatever happened in our country now, is a slight repetation of what happened in Indo in the year 1965. Maybe tak seteruk itu, but the plot is pretty much the same.

Be Original!!!

Selepas kejayaan hebat Ayat Ayat Cinta (sebuah novel cinta islamik), kini gedung buku dilambakkan dengan buku buku yang membawa genre yang sama.

If it is only its genre, it may be accepted. But what if they even copy / alter a bit the concept, the cover page, even the titles are almost the same.

These are the titles:

1. Kasidah Kasidah Cinta
2. Surah Surah Rindu
3. Zikir Zikir Cinta
These are the cover page (Note: All are women with hijab. It is good, but stop the exploitation dooh...):

Oh come on, Encik Producer, people won't read the same thing over and over again. It's like "HELLO???"

Penderaan Mental

It was really a mental torture to browse all these in less than 1 hour...

Fine... better an hour than never kan...

At last manage to get a copy of Pramoedya.

And Dilema Melayu (not too late to study this I think).

And Islam, The Misunderstood Religion.

Bet there will be next visit. Thanks Chowrasta!

P/S: Mekasih ya because sudi nunggu gwe depan kantor pak polisi.
