Lost No More

Last weekend was ermm..a busy one, fulfilling one? To put it simply, I did lots of things. Activity filled weekend. Saturday morning started with Subuh prayer of course, followed by a short nap until 8am before I headed to Kelab Komuniti Taman Tasik Cyberjaya near MMU Cyberjaya for a game of basketball. The last time I played basketball with a bunch of strangers was August last year, before the fasting month.

The weather was great (in fact, too great) for an outdoor basketball game. Thanks to my SESMA buddy Raf for inviting me. The last time I went to Cyberjaya to play but it suddenly rained as I reached the Sports Arena, Cyberjaya. So I really, really am thankful that it didn't rain that day.

That sure reminds me, I had to rely on Google Map and my memorizing skills to get to MMU. And it was night back then. I really didn't like that feeling of being lost. Not sure if the road I took was right or wrong. Then, before I knew it, I was driving around Putrajaya on my back home. And I have no idea how on God's earth I ended up taking a highway to Kompleks Sukan Negara, Bukit Jalil but from that point I knew my way back already...only to be caught in the traffic jam at the expressway's exit to Selangor Turf Club or as I say it, "Lumba Kuda" hahaha...

That was last time. Thanks to the GPS I have now, moving around to meet up with friends and family has been much easier. Driving back home last Saturday night after another round of basketball at Subang, I didn't feel a slight worry.

And it sure got me thinking, in life, if we are lost or feel lost, shouldn't we do something to get back on track? For Muslims, we have lots of things to be used as or things to do that give us guidance, reference. It's normal to feel lost sometimes. You feel down, and upset as if the whole world has abandoned you, not helping you to get on track. But after some times, you realise, how are the world to know if you are having trouble finding direction? In the end, you have to let them know. Like me, I asked the car dealer -

"Eh, Encik Ariff, ada GPS sekali kan dalam pakej kereta ni?"
"Ada, brand Proton."

Google Maps. That's my place. Come come. I belanja..roti canai. hehehe

to keep being in the same spot of feeling lost or not, that's up to us to decide.
