Eid Mubarak to everybody. Well… this time Eid is not that much of fun for me. I am away from my family and friends. I am going to celebrate Eid tomorrow in another country far away from my home in a totally new environment! I am terribly missing my home, my family and my friends. I am missing my Dhaka… I am missing the get together of my friends at Dhanmondi Lake… missing my mom’s Eid dishes… missing the Eid salaat with my papa in Dhanmondi Eidgah… missing my little sister… it seems that I am missing everything! But well… this is the life!
Once again… Eid Mubarak to all of my readers! May you enjoy this Eid with your family.
At last the sheep counting is over after keeping all of us in terrible tension for whole two months. I’ve already stated that my little sis has been appeared in SSC examination this year. It has been announced by the Education Board that the result will be published on June 26, that means yesterday. The whole last week we all are in tensed for what will be her result. To our relief by the grace of Almighty, she got A+ in all her subjects, which means her GPA is 5 out of 5. Thanks to Allah for her success. It was too much pleasure for us because she did what I couldn’t in my SSC exam.
In my time, my result didn’t meet my expectation, not even in a slighter chance. I was too shocked after the result that I left Chittagong and came to Dhaka for admitting in college, cause I couldn’t bear that result. I always wanted from my sis what I couldn’t. And now she made it. Thank you little sis.
If you’re reading this article please do me a favour. Just go to her blog and congratulate her for her success. I think she deserve this.
Well it’s not like that Kung Fu Panda was released with Firefox3! It’s my weekend that came with Kung Fu Panda and Firefox3. So the heading should be “My Weekend: Kung Fu Panda with Firefox3”. But… well… I couldn’t resist myself to do that joke! 😀
At last I’ve watched it! Yeap… I am talking about the animation movie Kung Fu Panda. I’ve been waiting for it. And this waiting was over in this weekend. Actually I always waiting for a good quality DVD print. But my little sis could not bear the awaiting any more and she bought it (and of course with my money) though the screen quality of the DVD was poor. The film is surely worth watching. The film is about panda named Po, who dreams to be a kung fu warrior. Only problem is his bulky body which creates the barrier to become a warrior. But things changed when he was accidentally picked up as the Dragon Warrior by the Tortoise Master Oogway (though Oogway continuosly claimed that choosing Po was not any accident). When Po became the Dragon Warrior, it was obvious that he have to face the evil snow leopard warrior Tai Lung, the former student of Master Shifu. Now it’s Pos’ responsibility to defeat him. But one little proble: Po doesn’t khnow the Kung Fu! I was stunned by the opening of this film. It opens with a hand drawn 2D animated sequence which resembles to Samurai Jack. Traditional Dreamworks opening was also changed!
Another surprise for me in this weekend was the Firefox 3. I’ve been a fan of FF for a long time. FF2 was great for using over the IE7. When I was introduced with Opera and Firefox, I barely used IE since then. Though IE7 has some good features which were not included in FF2, I liked FF2 because of it’s ease of use. And now it launches the version 3. First impression after opening the FF3 was just “WOW!”. A cool interface with all buttons in appropriate palces. I’ve not used it so much yet, so can’t discuss all the new features. But one thing amused me, FF3 can zoom the page with text and pictures together.
Well… a pretty good weekend, huh? An worth watching movie and the new upgradation of the best browser in the world.
That was March 2, 2000. I went for my SSC exam, for the first time (and last time ever 🙂 ). That was a big step for me in my life. I was appeared in some kind of real exam which would left its’ ever lasting effect in my whole life. Actually that was not my first time public exam, as I had appeared in government scholarship exams, both primary and junior program. I was used to sit for public exams. But those were not as vast as SSC exam. Just imagine millions of students are attending the same exam in same day through out whole Bangladesh! That’s a tremendous feeling!
In our family there is tradition of giving gifts as well as blessings to the SSC candidate from the elders. Last week before the exam, our house was almost remained packed with the guests who came to visit me. And my duty was to ask them to pray for me for the upcoming exam. Some close relatives came along with sweets and cakes (pithaa). I got a huge amount of gifts, to which I didn’t get much time to pay attention (’cause exam was knocking at door). My all senses were collapsed by the exam. What a cherished memory that was!
Those days were again came back to my memory now a days because of my little sister. My sis is going to appear SSC exam this year, to be precisely on March 27. Exactly one week is remaining. And like my days, well wishers and relatives are begun to swarm our home to visit her. My sis is already in little bit panic about the exam. She is a good student but always is in tense during any kind of exam. Now she is completing her last-moment preparations.
Please pray to the Almighty for her colossal success in the upcoming SSC exam. May Allah help her in this regard.
Today we celebrated Eid in Bangladesh. Unlike the other year’s Eid, this Eid is special to me. It has been years since my father celebrated Eid with us. The reason of his unavailability was his job for which he has to be stay aboard. And he used to not getting his vacation during Eid. This year all four members of our family enjoyed the Eid. Thanks to Almighty Allah for this great oppertunity.
To day me and my father went to Dhanmondi Eidgah at morning to participate in Eid-ul-Adha saalat. After that whole day we were busy to process the sacrificed animals and distributed the meat among the relatives and the poor people. Our home was packed with our relatives after the noon. And who were not able to come, conveyed their greetings by phone. Two of my cousins were with us from just after the Eid Saalat. But above all, it was a special father n’ son Eid to me. I can’t express the feelings of having my father among us in this Eid. It’s just GREAT!! Thanks to the Almighty again.
Though after half a day work I am tired now, I have managed some gap to write a post in my blog. Hope all Muslims will enjoy this Eid pleasantly. Eid Mubarak!!
