Ilusi Sebuah Pesona

Ilusi sebuah pesona,
Sering menipu pandangan,
Dengan warna warni keindahan,
Sedang ia hanya khayalan,
Tampak indah di awangan,
Terlalu jauh untuk ku genggam,

Mungkin ku hanya pengejar mimpi,
Mengembara di alam magika,
Tertawan dengan kilauan cahaya,
Hingga lupa untuk tersedar,
lalu jauh tersesat dari realiti,
landasan untuk ku berlari.

Lama aku terleka,
Diulit terbuai dalam melodi,
akalku terhanyut cukup jauh,
Warasku terbuang tiada bermakna,
Lantas merasa diri sebegitu terhina,
Tercampak tanpa diberi erti.

Mungkin aku tiada harga,
Tiada bernilai pada sketsa,
Yang dihiasi para bangsawan,
Tapi tetap tak kan ku lupa,
Sang arang batu juga terbuang,
Sebelum ia mekar sebagai permata.

Exploring a New World: Diving Experience

Image taken from this link [link]

Negativity is a disease. It spreads like a plaque and should be stopped before it starts showing their symptoms. Once it grow, then it’s almost impossible to get rid of it.

I always thought that I’m useless. Inferior complex always kill my confidence. I’m losing faith in myself and keep on thinking that can do nothing.

But I realize that the only way to overcome it is by keep on challenging myself. To push against the limit and to move forward even you have to crawl. Well I guess it help a lot.

A month back, during my end of my medical posting holiday, I have a chance to take a diving license. I think it’s an impossible task for me. It’s a costly activity and lot of regulations in order to keep you safe.

Well, the three days and two nights course really challenges me in its own way until I finally being awarded with “Open Water Diver” license from PADI society. It means that I can go deep down up to 18 meters below the sea level and explore the beauty of God’s creation.

It’s really challenging. Spending the first day for a theory part in which I think I never study that hard even during my medical school. Need to digest the whole manual required by a diver before we are allowed for diving.

And I have my dive on second and third day followed with final exam and thanks GOD I passed it with flying color (for the theory part I guess)

To make thing worst, I suffered from diarrhea and sea sickness. It totally drains a lot of energy. And at the end of session, I need to swim without any equipment or support for 300 meters. Not a long distance but enough to drain the whole energy from an untrained and un fit people like me.

But trust me; all of them are very wonderful and it makes you addicted. You really cant stop thinking about going diving again and again and hoping to explore more and more new things. It is beyond imagination.

Have you ever wondered how it is feels to float on the air, jumping and hovering on the air? You can freely twisting your body, went up and down, right and left and did not get hurt from fall. Well, trust me that even though we cannot do it on air due to gravity. Unless we can finally create an anti gravity system. I guess the feeling is the same when you are deep inside the water.

But inside the water. It’s a really three dimensional world. You can do almost everything that you like. You can swim upwards, downwards, twisting your body, rotating to left and right and up and down. You can see the whole creatures from every angle. The fishes, corals, sea urchins, jelly fish, squids, rays, starfish and many more are swimming happily and create a beautiful acrobatic movement. It is something that you must try.

InshaALLAH, I will find some time to go diving again. While I’m stay here in sabah. My next destination would be Mabul, Kepalai, Bohey Dulang and finally the ultimate diving heaven; the Sipadan Island. Yosh!

And hopefully, I can shape my body into a more fit and less weight person so that I can do other adventure activities that I’m hoping to do before I go back to semenanjung; climbing Kinabalu mountain, sky diving, para gliding and water rafting. InsyaALLAH.

Allah Matlamatku, Rasulullah ikutanku, Al Quran pedoman hidup, Syahid impianku.


"Janganlah kamu bersikap lemah, dan janganlah pula kamu bersedih hati, padahal kamulah orang-orang yg paling tinggi darjatnya, jika kamu org-orang yang beriman."[ Surah Al-Imran ayat 139]
