To achieve peace

“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.”

Jonathan Huie

Firman ALLAH SWT: “Jadilah pemaaf dan suruhlah orang mengerjakan yang makruf serta jangan mempedulikan orang-orang yang jahil.”

(Surah al-A’raf, ayat 199)

Binge Reading

Feeling good and happy today. I have managed to read my students’ work. It was a laborious and time consuming task, but, at the same time very satisfying. I feel good since I could carry out my duty to my students. I pray that all students under my supervision will successfully graduate and get their PhD or MPhil.

Literature in Education

It is interesting, the blend between old and new teaching methods. Nevertheless, Malaysian education has embedded literature in the English language syllabus. Literature is a subject on its own. I don’t know much about literature and not very clear how literature can help students learn language since literature is not my area.

Thank you so much to all LA staff members, who have joint the session.


I have learnt a new word, neologism, from a student’s master thesis. It was a good study with interesting findings. And there is a potential to study Malay neologism. What I know, the Indonesian language has a lot of neologisms, for example, lansia (lanjut usia).
