Before I go on with today's entry, let me tell you one thing.
Yes, I'm so angry today.
I'm really furious after reading Pa'chik's blog.
No, please don't get me wrong.
I'm not mad at him, I'm furious after reading the article he pasted in his latest entry.

How low can we go as a Malaysian Muslim?
Just to prove that we are living in a so-called developed country, to prove that we are open-minded, to show the world that we are capable of doing everything.. we have to put Islam away?
MasyaAllah.. I think having one 'Lina Joy' is enough.

Bartenders Whip Up A Storm At Contest

Third placed: Erik whipping up his Belveryna and Eredevleb Framboise Tea Martini cocktails.
THEY shook, stirred and dazzled the crowd as they whipped up two cocktails – a martini and a long drink – within a few minutes at the Belvedere Bartender Competition.

The competition hosted by Belvedere Vodka at Frangipani bar offered an opportunity to celebrate the skill, creativity and artistry of Malaysia’s bartenders as well as Belvedere Vodka’s belief in the art of mixing the perfect cocktail.

Ten bartenders from various five-star hotels and night outlets competed for the title of Belvedere Bartender of the Year 2007 (Malaysia).

The winner will participate in the Regional Bartender Event in Hong Kong with an opportunity to go on to the Belvedere International Bartender Competition in London.

“Each cocktail must feature one of the three types of Belvedere Vodka – Belvedere Pure, Belvedere Cytrus or Belvedere Pomarancza,” said Riche Monde Malaysia Belvedere Vodka brand manager Jeff Chong, whose company distributes the brand in Malaysia.

“Judging will be based on taste, outlook (bartender’s presentation), presentation of drink, aroma and the name of the cocktail.”

Test of skill and creativity: Adzhar straining his cocktail mixture before pouring it into a martini glass.
The panel of judges comprised Moet Hennessy Spirits marketing manager Andrew Khan, Belvedere Vodka regional brand ambassador Sam Jeveons and Klue magazine managing director John Lim.

“We’re also hosting a cocktail party, which will offer guests and Belvedere lovers the chance to have fun and enjoy some drinks,” Chong said.

Riche Monde Malaysia’s corporate clients, media members and celebrities like Marion Caunter, Wong Sze Zen, Stephanie Chai and Will Quah attended the invitation-only event.

Daphne Iking hosted the event while Camelia entertained guests with a few songs.

“Belvedere literally means 'beautiful to see.' A fitting name for such an alluring vodka,” Iking said during the opening of the event.

Delectable: Alvey sampling Adzhar’s Smooth while Iking looks on.
“The moniker is in fact inspired by the historical Belvedere Palace in Warsaw, former home to Polish royalties and presidents. Continuing a Polish tradition reaching back 600 years, Belvedere Vodka is handcrafted in small batches using centuries-old techniques to ensure the highest quality, “ she said.

Mohd Adzhar Ahmad, who has been bartending at Qba in The Westin Kuala Lumpur for two years, was declared the competition’s winner with his long drink named Pomarancza Ozie and martini called Smooth.

Fellow Qba bartender Rizal Junior Johari won second place with his Capito long drink and June’s martini.

Mohd Erik Fiza Zulkifle from The Loft KL was third with his Belveryna and Eredevleb Framboise Tea Martini cocktails.

Vodka fan James Coathup tried Erik’s Belveryna and described it as “fresh, fruity and delicious”.

“This drink is something I’d actually buy. I usually go for drinks like vodka cranberry and vodka lime soda when I’m out for drinks with friends,” the Australian said.

Channel [V] VJ Alvin Pulga, better known as Alvey sampled Adzhar’s Smooth and declared that its smooth taste lived up to its name.

The 1st,2nd and 3rd place are all Muslim.
Good job, guys. 'Well done!'

Don't they have better things to do?
Is getting a job that hard they had to settle being a bartender instead?
Come on, is not like you're making 'teh tarik' or what ok?
MasyaAllah.. MasyaAllah..

If any of you readers think that they aren't doing any wrong, or perhaps you're trying to be positive, thinking that they might just mingle with vodka,beer,wine et cetera without consuming it, [which I doubt because how would they know the mixture tastes good if they don't try it first??] ,well I hope this hadith will make you think twice.
Credits to pa'chik for putting this up, so that I can share with all of you who are reading.

Diriwayatkan oleh Ibnu Tarmizi dan Ibnu Majah;
“Rasulullah s.a.w. melaknat tentang arak, sepuluh golongan: (1) yang memerasnya, (2) yang minta diperaskannya, (3) yang meminumnya, (4) yang membawanya, (5) yang minta dihantarinya, (6) yang menuangkannya, (7) yang menjualnya, (8) yang makan harganya, (9) yang membelinya, (10) yang minta dibelikannya.”

I have yet to give my opinion on a local female actor who decided to shaved her head bald and now this??
MasyaAllah, it's neverending.
People seem proud to show they did something that is obviously wrong in Islam.
I really can't understand this.

I'm sorry this entry sounds so negative , but this I had to do.
I'm tired of reading about what these kind of people did to make others [non-Muslim] even more confused about Islam.
I may not be the best or the most suitable person to write about this, as I know I'm not a perfect Muslimah too, but Subhananallah..
This is just way too much.
I might just punch them in the face if I ever see them on the street.

Oh well, for the record, shaving your head bald [for woman] is HARAM no matter how you put it [unless it's for medical purposes-lah..].
What does art got to do with hukum Islam anyway?
It doesn't make it HALAL, even though that's what you do for a living.
[And daddy showing his support by shaving his head too?? Come on!!!!!]
The same goes for men who wear earrings or chain/choker.
That's HARAM too. Period.
