Assalamualaikum, ini adalah tutorial yang pertama. Rasanya hampir semua orang tahu apa itu blog tapi jangan terkejut kerana masih ada yang kurang tahu bagaimana untuk membuatnya. Rata-ratanya bertanyakan soalan yang sama semasa berchatting dengan saya di facebook. Ada banyak laman web yang menawarkan kemudahan untuk blogging.

Nick Vujicic

Ever heard of Nick Vujicic? Before you said anything, let's watch this video first.

Ok, you have watch it. Now how did you feel after watching this video?

His name is
Nicholas James Vujicic or known as Nick Vujicic. He was born on 4th December 1982. He is a preacher, a motivational speaker and the Director of the non-profit organisation Life Without Limbs. Born without limbs due to the rare Tetra-amelia disorder, Vujicic had to live a life of difficulties and hardships throughout his childhood.However, he managed to get over these hardships and, at seventeen, started his own non-profit organization Life Without Limbs.

Throughout his childhood Nick dealt not only with the typical challenges of school and adolescence such as bullying and self-esteem issues; he also struggled with depression as he questioned why he was different to all the other kids surrounding him; why he was the one born without arms and legs. He wondered what was the purpose behind his life, or if he even had a purpose. As Nick grew up he learnt to deal with his disability and started to be able to do more and more things on his own.

In 2005 Nick was nominated for the "Young Australian of the Year" Award, which is a large honor in Australia, recognizing a young person for their excellence and service to their local community and the nation, as well as their own personal accomplishments. Nick recently made the massive move from Brisbane, Australia to California, USA, where he is the president of an international non-profit organization, and also has his own motivational speaking company; Attitude Is Altitude.

People say to me, "How can you smile?" he says. Then they realize there's got to be something more to life than meets the eye if a guy without arms and legs is living a fuller life than I am.

Maher Zain

Maher Zain, a name that recently got very famous and popular in Malaysia. I was a fan of him before the phenomenon of him exploded. Around April 2010 i started to listen to his album Thank You Allah. At that time i didn't expected such supports from Malaysian's fans. But then when the news about his concert will be held in Malaysia, that was the time when i really heard his name on news, radios and such. Even more he even came to IIUM Gombak for a special performance during the Palestine concert specially organized for the CONVEST10. Anyway, i really like the whole album and of course my favourite although it's hard to choose but i really like Always Be There, Hold My Hand,Thank You Allah and The Choosen One.
