Assalamualaikum w.b.t (Peace be upon you)

Hi there, I'm Sagittarius. You?

Let's talk about astrology. Specifically, the horoscope. No, this entry won't be telling about your sign. What were you thinking when you read the daily horoscope in the newspaper? To some people, it's a must to read the horoscope column. They would wonder 'how their day will be', 'will they meet his/her new love' or for business minded people, will they have luck in their business today, and lots of other people's behavior. To make it worse, some people even start a relationship based on horoscope readings. They believe, their soul are compatible with Taurus, or their relationship won't last longer if they met with a Leo, just to give a few examples.

Do you like to read the horoscope? I do, but not the kind of daily horoscope. I love to read 'Astrological personality traits 'type. Which one are you? Aries, Pisces, Sagittarius? Ask yourself are you happy when you read your traits? I guess most of you are. I know you like to read 'You are a very caring person', or 'You are easy to get along with and you lead a cheerful life' and whatsoever. What about ' the Virgo individual is reliable, industrious, intelligent, and practical, adhering to standards that are quite high in virtually all aspects of their lives'. Very details eh?

Let's face the truth. Do you realize that the moment you started to read the horoscopes, you are not actually seeking your true personality. You are actually COMPARING and looking for the points that MATCH yourselves. For example, let's take a look at Pisces personality. "If you have found a romantic partner in a Pisces, you have a caring, loyal, understanding partner indeed, who truly cares about you at a deep level.  Pisces needs to be needed and if all elements are in place, he will stay with his partner for life, for better or for worse.  He will work hard to provide the best for his family and will never complain as long as he feels his efforts are worthwhile. Pisces has an uncanny sense of what his partner is thinking, an will try to head off problems before they arise - a nice trait to have in a partner.  Pisces is a creative soul and will likely have a home-based hobby or two, and showing interest in what interests him will go a long way towards cementing your relationship with your Pisces partner. "

You will look into yourself, and most of you will agree. 'Haah la...It's true I'm a loving guy, and yeah, I'm good in cooking too'. If that's so, then there's no meaning in looking for your true personality......if that's what you believe. It's already written right?

Astrology in Islam

Basically, Islam forbids it's believers to read or even worse, believing in the astrology forecast. Yusuf Al-Qardawi, Muslim famous scholar once said: Those who denied what they read (horoscope), their Solat (prayers) will be disqualified for 40 days. Even worse, if they read the forecast and even believe it, they will be declared a heretic. Allah said in the Quran: And verily We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the devils, and for them We have prepared the doom of flame (Al-Mulk: 5). Imam Bukhari r.a (famous Sunni Islamic scholar) in his book, Sahih Bukhari reported : "Allah created the stars for three main reasons. First, as a decoration for the skies. Second, as a medium to be thrown at satan and finally, as a guide for navigators. Whoever use the stars other than mentioned above, they're just wasting their time". Learning the star (Astronomy) for the research purposes is allowed in Islam.

Let's take a look of the answer given by an Islamic Scholar in an online forum.

There are two related terms that are often confused with one another, astronomy and astrology. Astronomy refers to the science that is concerned with the observation of the motions of heavenly bodies and reducing these observations to mathematical order, while astrology refers to the study of the supposed effects the movements of these celestial bodies have on human affairs.

According to jurists, it is lawful to study astronomy, for it is useful in predicting the beginning of months and seasons, determining the direction of Prayer, and navigating. They agree that this branch of science be used in determining the beginning and end of the month of Ramadan.
As for astrology, this is haram (unlawful) and nothing but lies. The Unseen is known only by Almighty Allah.

Responding to the question, Dr. Husam al-Din Ibn Musa `Afana, a Professor of the Principles of Fiqh at Al-Quds University, Palestine, states the following:

“First of all, it is worth noting that the Arabs knew astronomy a long time ago. They would predict time through observing the movements of stars.
According to the scholars of Shar`iah, there are two terms confused in many people's minds when it comes to dealing with the question in hand. These terms are astronomy and astrology. Astronomy is the science that deals with studying the movements of the celestial bodies and reducing observations to mathematical order. That science is useful in determining time, seasons, the direction of Prayer, etc.

Astrology, on the other hand, is concerned with studying the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs.

Astrologists believe that the movements of stars have an influence on people's lives. Both Muslim astronomers and [religious] scholars refuse the prophecies of astrologists. (excerpted from a lecture given by Dr. Yusuf Marwah under the title “Astronomy and the Beginning of the Lunar Months”)

According to scholars of Shari`ah, it is lawful to study astronomy; they accept that it is used in determining the beginning and end of the month of Ramadan.

The late renowned scholar Sheikh Ibn Raslan said: “The science of astronomy through which the movement of the sun and thus the direction of Prayer is detected is not prohibited in Islam.”

On the other hand, scholars agree that astrology is a prohibited field to deal with. Imam Ibn Taymiyah said: “Astrology that is concerned with studying the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs is prohibited by Almighty Allah’s Book, the Sunnah, and the unanimous agreement of the Muslim scholars. Furthermore, astrology was considered forbidden by all Messengers of Almighty Allah.”

The great Saudi scholar, Ibn `Uthaymeen, said: “Astrology is a kind of sorcery and fortune-telling. It is forbidden because it is based on illusions, not on concrete facts. There is no relation between the movements of celestial bodies and what takes place on the Earth.”

Before the advent of Islam, people would think that the sun and moon might eclipse when a great figure died. During the Prophet’s lifetime, it happened that the sun eclipsed on the same day when the Prophet’s son Ibrahim died. The people then thought that it had eclipsed because of the Prophet’s son’s death. On knowing this, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) led them in the Eclipse Prayer and then delivered them a speech saying: “The sun and moon are but signs of Allah; they do not eclipse because so-and-so died or was born.”

This hadith indicates that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) denied all relation between the movements of the heavenly bodies and events on the Earth. Besides, people who believe in the prophecies of astrologists are easily exposed to a labyrinth of illusions, pessimism, and psychological problems.

There is much evidence from the Sunnah that prohibits resort to or belief in astrology. Ibn `Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) reported that Almighty Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “He who has acquired some knowledge of astrology has acquired some knowledge of sorcery; the more he acquires of the former the more he acquires of the latter.” (Reported by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, and Ibn Majah)

Commenting on this hadith, Ash-Shawkani, a great scholar, said that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) compared between astrology and sorcery because sorcery was known to be forbidden; and so, he who would get some knowledge of astrology would do something forbidden and would be sinful. (Nayl Al-Awtar, vol.7, p.207)

It was also reported by Ibn `Abbas that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “He who uses astronomy for something other than what Almighty Allah has made lawful would be practicing sorcery. Astrologists predict knowledge of the future, and he who does so is a sorcerer, and sorcerers are disbelievers.” (See Meshkat Al-Masabeeh, vol. 2, p. 1296)

Also, Ibn Mihjan reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “I fear on account of my nation three things after my death: (I fear that) their imams (leaders) would oppress them, (that) they would believe in astrology, and (that) they would disbelieve predestination.” (Reported by Ibn `Asakir and Ibn `Abdul-Barr)

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) also reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “He who goes to a fortune-teller to ask him about something, his Prayer will not be accepted for forty days.” (Reported by Muslim)

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) also reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “He who goes to a soothsayer or a fortuneteller and believes what he says exhibits disbelief in what has been sent down to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) (from Almighty Allah).” (Al-Albani said in Sahih At-Targhib wa At-Tarhib, vol. 3, p. 172, that this is an authentic hadith.)

Contemplating the last two hadiths reported by Abu Hurayrah, it is to be noted that mere going to fortune-tellers is a sin that incurs upon a Muslim who commits it that his prayer is not accepted for forty days, and that believing what fortunetellers say renders a Muslim a disbeliever in what has been sent down to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). This is because Allah Almighty says: “Say (O Muhammad): None in the heavens and the earth knoweth the Unseen save Allah; and they know not when they will be raised (again).” (An-Naml: 65)

Allah Almighty also says: “(He is) the knower of the Unseen, and He revealeth unto none His secret, save unto every messenger whom he hath chosen, and then He maketh a guard to go before him and a guard behind him That He may know that they have indeed conveyed the messages of their Lord. He surroundeth all their doings, and He keepeth count of all things.” (Al-Jinn: 26-28)

To sum up, astrology is based on lies and deceit; it has no scientific basis. The astrologists’ usage of computers to convince people that what they do is technological and scientific is nothing but deceit. There is no scientific proof that there is a relationship between the appearance of a star in a specific time and the character and behavior of someone born at that time.

History proved that astrologists are liars in many situations. For example, when the Abbasid Caliph Al-Mu`tasim wanted to conquer `Amurayah, the astrologists then advised him not to do so at the time he had chosen, but he disregarded what they said. He marched with his army towards `Amurayah and won a great victory.

In this age also, many prophecies of the astrologists were proved to be false. For example, some had foretold that the world would come to an end by the year 1986 A.D., and nothing of the kind took place. Likewise, some had foretold that there would be earthquakes and wars at certain times, and when such times came, nothing happened.

To conclude, celestial bodies are signs of Allah’s Omnipotence and ultimate capability. They have no influence at all on the happiness or misery of people. True is the saying that astrologists are liars even if what they have foretold proves to be true.”


Big hit huh in Malaysia

In Malaysia, this horoscope phenomenon is so famous, that in July 2009, a local newspaper reports, less than a year, more than 10,000 Malaysians joined a workshop conducted by Dr. Azizan Osman, a meta-physicists in Malaysia. He said, the knowledge in numerology (number based forecasting) can also be used to determine your suitable life partner.He was said to show interest in numerology since secondary school. He was then began learning it from his first mentor, a non-Muslim Canadian, T Harv Eker in Singapore. He gained his Science Metaphysics PhD from Gordon University, Florida.

It's a no wonder why ONLY (I repeat, ONLY) Malaysian facebook users joined the 'Hanya dengan log in facebook, duit RM100 akan terbang melayang-layang dari langit dan terus masuk ke poket anda' scam. It's funny though. I just wondering, did Dr.Azizan got his PhD because he believed his numerology. Work people if you wanna be rich. No, I don't get jealous with it.

Care to be a successful person like me? Let's change your money problems into how to gain extra money. Anyone?

Stop chasing numerology illusions fellas!!..There are lot's of other '-logy' in this life. Go learn about living organisms in bioLOGY. Go learn and deepen your understanding in theoLOGY. Save your surroundings and nature by understanding ecoLOGY. Be a productive person or an inventor by knowing the terms technoLOGY. Know the details of diseases in pathoLOGY. You can do some research about your family lineage and history through geneaLOGY. Know which herbs are best consume by our body through herboLOGY.See, there are other '-logy' available in this world fellas. I know, it sounds cool to add '-logy' at the end of a word. The '-logy' suffix carry the meaning, the field of study. But that doesn't make you a professor or a specialist lad...

Mostly sweet things

Most of the horoscope reading are so sweet. That's what attract the readers, because they are pleased with the forecasts.

Let's take Virgo for example.

"Virgo in any relationship will be a diligent, hard worker who once embedded in the friendship will go the extra mile when needed.  Virgos are fairly critical and can tend to be nit-picky, but if you understand and accept this, they will be good friends who will amaze you with their wit and creativity.  Be careful not to step on your Virgo friend's ego, as they may go into a tailspin.  Many a Virgo has retreated to alcohol and drugs to lick open wounds.  All in all, however, your Virgo friend will be an asset and an ally who will allow you to take the lead if you have proven to be a trusted entity in their lives."

Let's make it a little bit realistic.

"Virgo in any relationship will be a hot tempered person, who once embedded in the friendship will go the extra mile to make others respect them. Virgos are bossy, love to bad-mouth and can tend to be extremely picky, but if you understand and accept this, they will be good friends who will amaze you with their problems and their obstinate . They can be a bit clumsy sometimes. Be careful not to step on your Virgo friend's ego, as they may erupt like a volcano. Many Virgo has retreated to alcohol and drugs to lick open wounds. They love to spend unnecessarily. Today they get their salary, by tomorrow they'll be half of it left. All in all, however, your Virgo friend will be an asset and an ally who will allow you to take the lead if you have proven to be a profitable entity in their lives". Who would wanna read such reading?

Effects on Society

If you're in a cold war with your best friend, you might believe it's because your star and his/her star are not matched. If you failed your exam, you might think it's because your reading said "You might not excel in study, but you are invincible when it comes to sport". If you love to spend your money unnecessarily, you have your star to blame. If your child became prodigy at an early age, you would think it as good luck of your child's star. If you don't stand out among your peers, or even worse, you're the black sheep in your group, you wouldn't argue much as you believe, it's your nature to stay low and play safe. If you're in love with a girl you've been waiting for 10 years, but was rejected just after you have the chance to confess to her, you'd believe, her star is not your suitable match.

See, how many 'IF' I've given here. Too many 'if' would mean a lot of uncertainties here. How could you depend on such uncertainties to live? This is why may people find it's so hard to change, and they gave up, and just lead a dull life, doing the same thing everyday again and again. Wake up lad! We are the writers, not the actors. Even if the writer, we're not a freelance writer. We can't do whatever we want. We have the director, the Creator who creates everything. There are reasons why human were created. The more you believe in those reading, the more you WILL be just like what you read. Am I right? It's psychology. People tends to be like what they were told to, especially things that pleased them. Agree with me? We'd feel happy when we read stuffs like "You are a hardworking and very reliable person", but we sometimes don't realize, our job performance are decreasing, in reality. "You are quite charming and attract people around you", yet you're alone.

Whale watching in Muroran

Assalamualaikum w.b.t (Peace be upon you)

One of the activity you can found only in Muroran is the whale and dolphin watching activity. Species of dolphin and whales available are as follows: 

Pacific white-sided dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens)
Minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata)
Dall's Porpoise (Phocoenoides dalli)
Free Willy star - Killer whale (Orcinus orca) Beluga whale
white whale (Delphinapterus leucas)
Harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena).

The trip began at 10:00 after a simple briefing about the safety on board, the Do's and Don'ts blablabla......we board the ship named Beluga, commandeered by an Ainu descendant captain. It was a small boat and the day was rainy. We boarded the small congested cabin of the boat and off the port. The trip was a bit slow as the sea was quite rough and the wind was a little strong. We bumped up and down countless time and some of us got seasick...yeah, she vomited into the sea. Ahhh...wish my camera was ready at that moment lad!

It was harder than I thought to look for a good spot to watch the dolphin or if we were lucky, whales jumping out from the sea. The captain said, we have to look for a spot where birds gather. Chances to find dolphins or whales are higher. We then came to the first spot. It was frustrating. Not a single glimpse of dolphins were there. We waited for about 10 minutes before continuing the search for dolphins.

About 15 minutes later, the captain announced, he spotted another spot. This time I really hoped the dolphins will be there. Finally, all the waiting and seasick were paid off when the dolphin appeared and swam around our boat. Alhamdulillah, I gained another XP for my life! That was my first experience watching dolphins at close range. It was enjoying watching them 'racing' (if you get what I mean). The weather was just perfect. Not too cold, though it was cloudy that day.

That day really tested my quick-photo-shooting skills. (Don't look for the term). To shoot fast-moving objects, in my case the dolphins, you must be prepare yourselves to press the shutter-release button at any moment. This means, forget about saving the camera's battery. When the dolphin popped out of the water, you only have about three to four seconds for a good shot. For this kind of shooting, it's better to use burst mode. This is the best part in using the DSLR, not DS1M. Ok, aku tau memang tak lawak. Burst is a mode in a camera mostly in DSLR. In this mode, several images  can be captured with one press on the shutter. This is used mainly in mixed-light conditions or when the subject is in successive motion. The photographer can then select the best image of the group or arrange them in a sequence to study the transitions in detail.

By the way, all the pictures above are credited to wikipedia and the original photographer. Mana boleh kalah macam ni. I got some pictures too.

Nah. Thanks to those birds for the "ahh... so realistic and alive" effect on this pictures.

p/s: I really hope to take a shot like one in the Free Willy movie. ahhh...really love that movie when I was a kid.

Movies personal review...1998 and 2010 productions

Assalamualaikum w.b.t

THE SIEGE (1998)

The Siege was a movie released in 1998 starred by the famous Denzel Washington and my all-time favorite Bruce Willis. Yeah, 1998! The time where Bruce Willis still got some hair on his head.Though it's a bit out of date, this movie leaves a very deep impression to me. This story starts with a bus taken hostage in the American soil which was later found out to be a bluff. The so-called Arab Muslim terrorist 'attack' aimed to warn the American government of their foreign policy against the Muslim worldwide. Denzel Washington played as Hubbert Anthony, an officer in the FBI. His partner Frank Haddad apparently comes from Arab family, speaks fluent(?) Arabic and mostly act as a translator. The tension started to rise when another have been hijacked, but this time the terrorist are serious. They blew the bus when Agent Hubbard tried to trade himself with all the hostages in the bus. Then the story continues as the whole government agencies working together to catch the culprit. I don't know what happen in 1998 as the word Malaysia were clearly said by Hubbard in the movie. Ohh..ohh I guess they're just jealous with Malaysia as we were able to withstand the Global Recession, thanks to Malaysian's Prime Minister at that time, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

Arab descendants were being placed in a stadium which served as a temporary detention center. Now, in order to arrest the culprit, they rounded the whole Arab community. Look at today's conflict in Middle East region. First, they blame Mr. Osama whom I believe there are lots of people out there believe, he caused the sparks of War on Terror led by USA. Ever heard about a military term called 'False Flag Operation'?.In brief, it's an operation carried on to deceive the world public about the main objectives and how they're being carried off. Same goes to Iraq today. US claimed the late Saddam of possessing Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and yes, they somehow managed to get the support of the world to wage war against Iraq. Until now, the occupation reached it's seventh year and yet, not a screw of a WMD missile ever been found by them. Uhhh..... what a shame. Have you watched the latest 2010 movie, 'Green Zone' starred by Matt Damon? If you don't I urge you to do so. The story's setting was the dawn of the war in Iraq and how the False Flag Operation played a significant role to justify US military action against Iraq. Of course it's a Hollywood production....maybe that's why I don't really believe that story. Well, put that aside first and just take the essence of the story okay?

In this story, a Palestinian man takes a role as a double agent for both America and the secret Arab terrorist organization he joined. At 00:38:49, the CIA agent Sharon Bridge/ Elise Kraft said: "Mine, yours, the Israelis, the Saudis (when referring who's in charge fro the Palestinian man). Everybody in the Middle East is sleeping with everybody else". So, I can assume they're trying to say they got hands in all parts of the world, including your organization. At 00:39:23, Elise asked:"how many people you got in Hamas?". Or what about at 01:08:46 where Sharon said: "Because he was part of the operation to destabilize Saddam Hussein with me".Well, it's a no wonder why the conflicts in Middle East are still there. In order to stay longer on the Arabian soil, American hidden hands creates fake conflicts, riots or maybe even conduct assassination, so that Arab country will turn to them for protection, and they'll get their continuous oil source, enough to fuel whatever war they like. So, don't blame people who don't practice car pool, or people who don't use the public transportation. Blame those countries who consume so much oil everyday, for war. Winning people's heart and mind? won't works against those Arab infidels. As one of the Senator said at 01:02:05:"You don't fight a junkyard dog with ASPCA rules. What you do is you take the leash off your own bigger, meaner dog."If you get it?

At 00:57:53, the president of the Arab Anti-defamation League vowed:"...we will show our commitment to this country."Arab...they were the US black sheep close allies. Look what happened to Arab countries today. Still, striving for peace. Saddam was once US ally. Who backed Iraq during the Iraq-Iran war? In 2003, they found Saddam can no longer be used. So they just barged into Iraq and overthrew him. At 01:31:19 Hubbert said to Sharon: "You told me that you trained them. Trade craft, subversion. That's what you said wasn't it? You're leaving something out aren't you, Sharon? You taught to make bombs". So, their weapons are turning against their back. Uhhh...whatever. Well I give this story 8/10 for it's good action and plot.       


This latest story was literally 'Unthinkable'. I usually love military-based action movies and sometimes romantic comedy story. For me it's important to change your movie genre occasionally so you don't always get too serious after watching the action movies and you don't always think 'I'm the hottest guy' after you watched romantic movies. Now, let's get back into the topic. Unthinkable is an American  suspense thriller directed by Gregor Jordan and starring Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Sheen and Carrie-Anne Moss. The film was released on 5 November 2009 in the United States. It is rated R due to strong bloody violence, torture and language (thanks Wikipedia). The story began with a white man claiming himself as an American Muslim and he had placed three nuclear bombs somewhere in three major American cities. The man starred by Michael Sheen (character name: Yusuf) is of course not a Muslim in the real world.One of the supporting character, the Yusuf's wife (Jehan) was a Pakistani born woman who married Yusuf. After facing some marriage problems, she then attempted to leave US with their two children, just to find out their visa was denied.

In the anti-climax part of the movie, the interrogator, 'H' (also the torturer) demanded Yusuf's wife and children as a last resort to force Yusuf to reveal the locations. At first, he mocked to torture Yusuf's wife, in front of him. To the surprise, H finally slitted her throat in front of Yusuf. Without apologizing, he then continued to torture Yusuf as the time was running out. As a last desperate move, H called his last aces, Yusuf's children. As the story's title itself, H claimed what he was going to do was unthinkable, to torture Yusuf's children. The attempt was failed by the military officer standing by around. From this incident, H clearly said: "If that bomb goes off, they'll kill millions of people, including kids. What's the difference of killing this two kids?". That's how they deal with us. To justify their act, they just use any approach, any technique deemed 'necessary' to deal with all kinds of threat. That's how they manipulate the world. Through fear and overwhelming power. Winning is everything. They know human's weaknesses. Any ways to achieve the victory were deemed allowable. It's OK to cut the Muslim terrorist fingers and pulled out the nails. Well what about water boarding? It's alright...they're the World's Peacekeeper. You think they remember or even care to know about the murder of Marwa El-Sherbini? I don't think so. Thousands of Palestinians have already been killed in the West Bank conflict. Any intervention from US? No. Freedom? Liberty? Bullshit with that. Minarets in Europe can cause unease among European? Hijab and veils robbed women right? Now answer this? Why do you think all those mentioned above happen only (or should I say SOLELY) to Muslim and Islam? Are they trying to hide something? The truth maybe. Look around us. Watch the news. Read the newspapers. Ever found shocking headlines such as "US warned 15R4E1 against Gaza blockade" or "Vatican condemned massacred of Muslims in Ambon, Indonesia". Almost NO is the answer. Search Wikipedia if you want.

Now, I'm not trying to spark hate and anger among religion. Islam and Christian came from the same source. We all believe in the same person (Isa- Peace be upon him). Why should spread hatred among us. Think again who would profit from the world's conflict and instability. Who waged the World Wars. Who owned private military company. Who are the world's weapon manufacturers.  I just want you all out there to peel out your eyeball and free yourself from all these hidden propaganda. It's okay to watch movies you like, as long as you know how to filter what is good and wrong. It's okay to have a strong faith in your religion. But, be a true believer and find the truth. Know the history of your religion, why you should this or why you shouldn't do that. Don't just follow. You have the right to know not just believing without a basis.

Lastly, think of this question. Why there are tests, examinations or assessment in this world? Some of you I believe would answer, to pick the best choice, because that's the main objectives of exam. Now, what will happen if those exams were gone, no rules or restrictions and human can live freely without boundaries, limitless. What will happen you think. Now, relate it to Islam's situation. Why Islam is the only religion labeled as terrorist, provoked for being the Axis of Evil, blamed for 'forcing' women to cover from head to toe or other accusations.... Why other religion have never been heavily criticized by the world. No one blamed Buddhism for the meditation to focus your inner soul, or Hinduism for piercing your body to carry Kavadi? They would say, "It's their religion. It's unique, just let them practice their religion freely". But ironically, they said Rules in Islam which protects woman's privacy and prevent injustice are just impracticable and out of date. Think back about the first question I asked before. Have you been tested with the real test yet? Or is it your life is just too smooth. Everything's fine and you're doing so good. Well, think again.
