Hmm. Today got a wake-up call from a friend. Asking me my result (Of course for my Exam). Suddenly, it makes me sick! Nervous and my heart beats so much faster at unusual speed. Ha!
After all the fussed I've been through in order to check my result, finally I've mouthed Alhamdulillah (Praise to ALLAH). Well, at least to me the hard work to the result me got pays off. Once again Alhamdulillah.
Recently, I got a gift that makes me happy and my days worth.=)
Thanks. Yes, to you=)
And speaking of holiday, my father said "Let us test and drive". Well, sort of. The thing is, I've just upgraded my license from P and my sister just got her P license. Well, that's why we called it test and drive. =D

Having ate this. Makes me sick for a few days. FEVER! huhu That reminds me the article below.=) Let's read!
Already talks about 'eat'. This is the Etiquette for Eating and Drinking (Taken from: http://www.islaam.net/main/display.php?id=1213&category=126 )
A Muslim considers his food and drink means to something else. They are not a goal and pleasure in themselves. He eats and drinks in order to keep his body healthy so that he may worship Allah the Almighty. This is the worship that will make him qualified for the honor of the life and happiness of the Hereafter. He does not eat and drink for the sake of eating and drinking and its desires. Therefore, if he is not hungry, he does not eat. If he is not thirsty, he does not drink. It is narrated that Allah's Messenger (SAW) said:
|"We are a people who do not eat until we are hungry. And if we eat, we do not eat to our fill."|
Etiquette Before EatingA Muslim should try to make his food and drink pure by preparing them from the permissible, pure sources that are free of any taint of the forbidden or doubtful. Allah the Almighty said:
|"0 you who believe! Eat of the lawful pure things that We have provided you. (2:172)|
|“Allahs messenger (SAW) did not eat upon a table or from a platter. ( Al-Bukhari)|
|"I do not eat while reclining. Instead, I am a servant, so I eat like a servant eats and I sit like a servant sits. (Al-Bukhari)|
|"Allah's Messenger (SAW)| never found fault with any food. If he desired it, he would eat it. If he disliked it, he would leave it." (Al-Bukhari)|
|“Eat your food together, for you will thereby be blessed in it.” (Abu Dawud and At-Tirmithi who said it is Sahih)|
Etiquette While EatingThe person should begin his eating by saying: Bismillaah "In the Name of Allah." Allah's Messenger (SAW) stated:
|"If any of you is about to eat, he should mention the Name of Allah. If he forgets to mention the Name of Allah at the beginning, he should say, 'In the Name of Allah over the beginning and the ending.'" (Abu Dawud)|
|"If a person eats any food and then says, 'Praise is to Allah who fed me this and provided for me without any strength or power on my part,' all of his previous sins will be forgiven." (At-Tirmithi)|
|"O young man, mention the Name of Allah, eat with your right hand and eat from what is close to you. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)|
|"The blessings descend from the middle of the food. So eat from the edges and do not eat from the middled "(At-Tirmithi)|
|"When one of you eats, he should not wipe his fingers until he licks them or has them licked." (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)|
|"You do not know in which part of your food lies its blessing." (Muslim)|
|"If a morsel of food falls from any of you, he should take it and wipe it clean of any dirt and then eat it. He should not leave it for the Shaytan." (Muslim)|
|"A human does not fill any container worse than his stomach. It is enough for a human to have some morsels to strengthen his back (keep his back straight). If he must eat more, then it should be one-third of his stomach for food, one-third for drink and one-third for breathing." (Ahmad)|
|"(Begin with) the eldest, the eldest."|
|"Begin with) those on the right, and those on the further right. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)|
|"The one who gives drink to the people should be the last of them," (Ahmad) that is, the last of them to drink .|
|"If the hands are stretched to the food, I will not be the quickest among them, as the greediest of the people is the quickest among them."|
Etiquette After EatingOne should stop eating before he becomes full, thereby following the example of Allah's Messenger (SAW). This will keep him from suffering debilitating indigestion and gluttony that takes away one's intelligent thinking.
|"O Allah, bless us in what You have provided for us and increase it for us. “(Abu Dawud)|
|“May the fasting break their fast with you, may the pious eat your food and may the angels invoke blessings for you." (Abu Dawud)|
