Indahnya alam ciptaan ALLAH....سبحا ن الله


10 - SUTHERLAND FALLS [Fiordland, New Zealand]

In a country that holds a special place in our hearts, this gorgeous 580m waterfall is easily New Zealand's most spectacular waterfall and makes our list. Given its remote location deep in the wild and beautiful Fiordland National Park (also a World Heritage Area), it's one of many highlights of the Milford Track - said to be one of the finest walks in the world.

9 - DETTIFOSS [Jökulsárgljúfur, Iceland]

It is Europe's most powerfull waterfall sending glacial meltwaters over its 44m precipice unchecked at a flow of around 500 cubic meters per second. It epitomizes the wild and raw Icelandic Nature and is a favorite amongst Icelandic Nature lovers. Its position at the head of the impressive Jökulsárgljúfur (the Icelandic version of the Grand Canyon) surrounded by three other major waterfalls on the same river makes it a no-brainer for this to make our Top 10 Waterfalls List.

8 - GULLFOSS [Haukadalur, Iceland]

One of the more unique waterfalls you'll ever see in the world, this wild and wide waterfall tumbling on the Hvítá River in two tiers at 90 degree angles to each other is one of Iceland's iconic natural attractions. Part of the Golden Circle of Iceland's main attractions in the Southwest, this is a must on anyone's itinerary. In addition to the falls' unique shape, you can see rainbows arcing over the falls when your timing's right and the weather cooperates.

7 - KAIETEUR FALLS [Potaro River, Guyana]

Said to be one of the tallest single-drop waterfalls in the world, this rectangular-shaped monster (said to be 741ft tall 370ft wide) sits atop the ancient Guyana Shield amidst some of the most pristine rainforest left on earth! Indeed a visit to this world wonder can yield rare wildlife settings as well as the reassurance that there are still places on the planet where nature is still allowed to thrive. Thus, Julie and I had to make room for this waterfall on our Top 10 List!

6 - YOSEMITE FALLS [California, USA]

Even though this waterfall doesn't flow year round, it does flow for a good part of the year and it's one of the tallest in the world at 2425ft. It's the crown jewel of attractions in the incomparable Yosemite Valley and it's easily seen from a multitude of viewpoints and trails. So given its ease of access, scenery, and sheer size, this waterfall makes our Top 10 Waterfalls List.

5 - ANGEL FALLS (SALTO ÁNGEL) [Canaima, Venezuela]

Plunging uninterrupted for 807m (with total drop of 979m) from a mystical tabletop mountain (tepuy) deep in a Venezuelan equatorial rainforest, it is widely acknowledged as the tallest permanent waterfall in the world. Its existence defies logic as its source is nothing but the soggy cloud forest on the plateau of the tepuy. No doubt about it, there's nothing like this waterfall and the adventure to even get to this so-called Lost World (Mundo Perdido) for a chance to see this world wonder is sure to leave you with a lasting impression. 

4 - PLITVICE WATERFALLS [Northern Dalmatia, Croatia]

When it comes to the overall waterfalling experience, it's hard to beat this world famous attraction. While the rest of the waterfalls on our Top 10 List are primarily singular waterfall attractions, this one is really a network of countless waterfalls (some of which are impressive enough to stand out on their own). The waterfalls themselves segregate the many clear and colorful lakes that bring life to this lush and protected ecosystem. Plus, you have boardwalks that take you under, over, and around almost all of the notable waterfalls for some of the most intimate waterfalling experiences to be had. Add it all up, putting these waterfalls on this list was an absolute no-brainer as far as Julie and I were concerned.

3 - NIAGARA FALLS [Ontario, Canada/New York, USA]

Easily the most famous waterfall in North America, this powerful waterfall also ranks as the biggest one by volume with a whopping average of about 750,000 gallons per second (2.8 million Liters per second)! In addition to its raw power, the falls is easily one of the easiest to access and view from all sorts of angles. While its surroundings are a bit less naturesque for many, it clearly makes the upper tier of our list of Top 10 Waterfalls.

2 - VICTORIA FALLS (MOSI-OA-TUNYA) [Livingstone, Zambia/Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe]

Easily deserving of the top spot on this list (though it finished a very close second), it's the largest singular waterfall in the world spanning a width of 1.7km, a height of 108m, and an average flow of 1 million liters per second! It's no wonder this "smoke that thunders" is considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Indeed, it's got power, beauty, and it will make you humble and awestruck.

1 - IGUAZU FALLS (IGUASSU FALLS) [Puerto Iguazú, Argentina/Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil]

With its brink spanning a distance of an incredible 2km in its average flow of 1.3 million liters per second, this falls tops our list of favorites. The falls actually consists of some 275 individual waterfalls and cascades. Catwalks make it easy to get closeup and intimate views and the rainforest surroundings make the scenery feel right for a natural attraction such as this. Put it all together and Julie and I believe this falls is heads and shoulders above the rest (except Victoria Falls) that we've seen!

Kisah sahabat sejati yang membuatkan manusia menangis ?

I think it’s not that wacky or bizarre or whatever if I say that friend plays a very2 important role in shaping someone’s life… Agree ??? Well, maybe certain people will disagree with me. But yeah..never mind.. That is just my thought from what I saw, what I believed, and what I experienced. You’re free to have your own point of view about this. As for me, I believe what I believed is true. Well, I do believe that in our life, we always hope to have one true friend that will always stay by our side no matter what life throws in our way. I’m very sure that you guys have heard of all those stories about friends, friendship etc... Those stories that amazes you with the nice and touching storylines until can make you cry.. Let me share with you guys one story that finally made me realised the meaning of a true friend.



Terdapat dua orang sahabat baik di sebuah kampung. Sejak kecil lagi, setiap perkara yang mereka buat akan dilakukan bersama-sama. Dari meredah hutan, memancing, belajar dan apa-apa sahaja sekalipun, mereka akan melakukannya bersama-sama. Pendek kata, dimana ada sahaja, akan ada mereka berdua. Seawal usia remaja, negara mereka telah dilanda satu peperangan. Ini telah memaksa semua remaja untuk melibatkan diri dalam bidang ketenteraan bagi mempertahankan tanah air. Tidak terkecuali, dua orang sahabat ini. Mereka memasuki bidang ketenteraan bersam-sama. Pada suatu pagi yang hening, tiba-tiba pihak musuh telah menyerang markas tempat tentera ini. Maka suasana yang pada mulanya hening menjadi hingar bingar. Kdengaran buyi tembakan mush memecahkan kesunyian pagi. Pihak musuh yang menyerang telah menembak membabi buta. Maka, tunggag langgangla lah pihak tentera tadi termasuk dua orang sahabt tadi. Sesampainya mereka di markas rahsia. Sahabat tadi mendapati bawah sahabat baiknya tiada di situ. Maka dengan rasa kelam kabut, dia bergegas meminta izin kepada ketuanya untuk keluar kembali ke tempat peperangan untuk mencari sahabtnya tadi. Tapi ketua itu telah menolak seraya berkata " Untuk apa engkau kembali ke sana, sahabatmu telah mati dan engkau mungkin akan ditembak musuh. Sia-sia sahaja. " Oleh sebab terlalu kasihkan sahabatnya. Maka, dia tidak mengendahkan arahan kaptennya tadi. Selang setengah jam kemudian, dia pulang dengan ada kesan tembakan di bahagian perut. Ketuanya melihat seraya berkata. "Kan aku dah kata hanya sia-sia je" Sahabat tadi menjawab " Tidak sia-sia wahai ketua, aku dapat  mendengar kata-kata terakhirnya" Kapten tadi mendengar sambil berkata dalam hati "Hanya cakap kosong". Namun, oleh sebab rasa ingin tahu yang tinggi, maka ketua tadi datang semula kepada seraya bertanya. "Sebenarnya apa yang dia telah katakan kepada kamu sehingga kamu sanggup untuk menggadaikan nyawa kamu kepadanya? "Jawablah sahabat tadi sambil berkata " Saya tahu kamu akan datang kembali mencari saya" Itulah kata-kata terakhirnya sambil tersenyum puas.


 It’s not easy to find someone who is willing to accept us of who we are without arguing anything.. It’s not easy to find someone who will stay with us in joy or sorrow, in happy or troubled times. One day, when we have find our true friend, treasure them and appreciate them while we still have time cause maybe we won’t be able to find someone like them anymore.. As for me, there are no ‘TIPS’ that can help us to find a true friend. They will just come and stay (if God wills).

Have you tied your camels???


As Salaamu 'alaykum and peace to all,

Have You Tied Your Camels? An Inspirational Story about Action and Trusting God

That day I received an email from one of my darling aunts. She has been sending me emails for years, and her emails are always a joy to 'click on'.


Somehow, my aunty never fails to receive emails that carry very interesting and worth pondering content. And she always, always forwarded them to this hyperactive niece of hers.

Thanks Mak Usu*!

She reminded me of a Spanish proverb that said,

“Only an Aunt can give hugs like a mother, can keep secrets like a sister, and share love like a friend.”

She sure can and does!

And that day, she sent me this amazing video below.

SubhanAllah, amazing, isn't it?

Watching the video, especially at the cornering section, I almost stopped breathing out of nervousness!

From the look of it, it simply look impossible to do, you agree?

I personally thought that the truck driver couldn't pull it off.

But, surprise, surprise- HE DID! SubhanAllah...

With careful calculation, and one 'round of tyre' at a time, coupled with patience he did what is thought to be impossible.

Immediately, this video clip reminded me of a hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) :

One day Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, "Why don't you tie down your camel?" The Bedouin answered, "I put my trust in Allah." The Prophet then said, "Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah" (Tirmidhi).

Indeed, tie your camel first, and then trust Allah!

The truck driver did show us that he tied his camel by carefully estimating and slowly making his way around the curve instead of just bulldozing his way through.

He made me ask myself- have I tied my camel today? Have I put in my efforts before saying I cannot do something and say it is Allah's will that I cant do it?

What about you my friends?

Have you tied your camel with the strongest rope possible before saying you leave it to Him, our Lord?

Think About It..

~Life is Wonderful~

taken from the lyrics 'LIFE IS WONDERFUL'-JASON MRAZ

' life is always wonderful when you have these : SABAR, SYUKUR and REDHA...'

p/s : here's the thing...
someone came up with the v-clip on facebook and said : 'when time gets hard...or thing seems to turn out the way you dont want it to be... take a deep breath and sing this song...'

u know what? i kinda follow the advice and it ain't that bad...pretty works for me :P

so peeps...instead of cursing...griving...crying...or lamenting your life... sing this song and get a life! if you think your life is pathetic...think again. there's tons of people out there are facing a way harder life than you.

cause Allah wont burden you beyond your capability dude!. He will test you with something you can bear and handle.
