Motivation Quotation......

Aku meminta kepada Tuhan setangkai bunga, segar, Ia beri kaktus berduri. Aku minta kupu-kupu diberinya-Nya ulat berbulu. Aku sedih dan kecewa. Namun kemudian, kaktus itu berbunga indah sekali dan ulat itupun menjadi kupu-kupu yang sangat cantik. Itulah jalan Tuhan, indah pada masaNYA! Tuhan tidak memberi apa yang kita harapkan. Tapi Dia memberi apa yang kita perlukan. Kadang kala kita sedih, kecewa dan terluka. Tapi jauh di atas segalanya Dia sedang mengatur yang terbaik dalam kehidupan kita.............................................

Fight for this 'love'


Cheryl Cole - Fight For This Love on MUZU.

credit to my phd mate for introduce this new song......i have to fight fight fight for this journey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too much of anything can make you sick
Even the good can be a curse (curse)
Makes it hard to know which road to go down
Knowing too much can get you hurt.

Is it better? Is it worse?
Always sitting in reverse
it's just like we're going backwards.

I know where I want this to go
Driving fast but lets go slow
What I don't wanna do is crash nooo.

Just know you're not in this thing alone
There's always a place in me that you can call home
Whenever you feel like we're growing apart
Let's just go back, back, back, back, back to the start.

Anything that's worth having
Is sure enough worth fighting for
Quiting's out of the question
When it gets tough, gotta fight some more.

We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
If it's' worth having, it's worth fighting for oh-oh-oh

Now everyday ain't gon' be no picnic
Love aint a walk in the park
All you can do is make the best of it now
Can't be afraid of the dark.

Just know you're not in this thing alone
There's always a place in me that you can call home
Whenever you feel like we're growing apart
Let's just go back, back, back, back, back to the start.

Anything that's worth having
Is sure enough worth fighting for
Quiting's out of the question
When it gets tough, gotta fight some more.

We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
If it's worth having, it's worth fighting for oh-oh-oh

I don't know where I'm heading
I'm willing and ready to go.
We've been driving so fast
We just need to slow down
And just ro-o-o-o-o-oll.

Anything that's worth having
Is sure enough worth fighting for
Quiting's out of the question
When it gets tough, gotta fight some more.

We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
If it's worth having, it's worth fighting for oh-oh-oh

We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
We gotta fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love
It's worth having, it's worth fighting for oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Inductive-Qualitative

22nd meeting

Not too much progress at this moment ..just quick glance explanation the theories to my supervisor, that I will support for my findings...sounds it look simple but it will be hard time for me to do the justification and discussion for this research.Then, after that,I had attended research methodology's class for 8th times(supposedly.... but I did missed 3 times since the class already started on 29th Sept) where will be end on this coming 15th Dec. Actually the class purposely for registered Msc IT student, however, my core supervisor asked me to sit in for ensure my deep understandings on how to research in information system perspectives.So far what I am doing now, just on track within perspective of information system. Now,I'm still struggle to start write up...Normally many people said to start write up stage is very critical part in this 'journey' especially in beginnings...hopefully I will be able to write up soon...not too much left....I believe I can do it insyaallah I can do it......wish me all the best....

Next 23rd meeting- 8.12.09

try to solve my 'barriers'

- always feel lazy when the study time come....- have to think my family here(my girls and my spouse) and also at Malaysia...insyaallah I'll get the spirit back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- tendency to being sleepy especially after my girls sleep in the night...hardly effort to stay up or burn in the midnight oil..- now at this moment need time to change my style although it still doesn't work all the time....how?????try to sleep early with them and wake up early..but as I said previously, it need time to achieve it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- not in good health either myself,my spouse or girls - always ask to the Merciful to avoid uncertain 'health' for us......with some effort or prevention action too...
- lots of things to do and sometimes don't know which is the priority....- always plan and plan and keep evaluate the plan either it works or not
- home sick feelings - when feeling homesick compulsory to call my mom...yes...it can be some favourable action too...for me ..I don't know the other people...
- nobody never understand my situation...only family understands me(mom and my sister) but only phone call my bridge with them not face to face(not use skype at the moment)...that is challenge!!!!!!!!- I'm 'redha'...since after I read the TPB and SCT...and Alhamdulillah I can accept with this situation..
- hardly consistent with the planning....so worry with this challenges - keep trying to change not drastically, but gradually since I'm already 30 years(should be more matured) not 3 years old girl anymore......
- don't know how to struggle..if I can, I wish to spend my phd time almost 12 hours per day...but normally plus minus 5 hours only...- I think it's better that I keep consistent rather 'all out' too much..I have to consider my brain and minds too..'they' need to rest for certain time to avoid me become depress or stress.....Phd is not everything in this world but to get Phd really need supports from everything surrounds me......

anybody argue with me or have other solution????..do tell me..I'm do appreciate it............

Theories Theories.....

Challenges time..really need to understand lots of theories for proof the findings...hopefully it goes smoothly....anybody need to share joyful of reading theories.....do email me- norintan79@yahoo.co.uk

At the moment, I try to look further,truely and deeply on -

1- receiver based theory
2- social cognitive theory
3- theory planned behavior
4- social capital theory
5- social exchange theory
6- hermeneutic theory
7- media richness theory
8- theory narrative

This coming Tuesday, I have to explain concisely all these theories to my sv....may all the best for me........insyaallah I'll use all of these theories for my research...is it too much or too little????

Don't give up dear.......

click here to listen the song :
That's The Way It Is

I can read your mind and I know your story
I see what you're going through
It's an uphill climb, and I'm feeling sorry
But I know it will come to you

Don't surrender 'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is


When you question me for a simple answer
I don't know what to say, no
But it's plain to see, if you stick together
You're gonna find a way, yeah

So don't surrender 'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When life is empty with no tomorrow
And loneliness starts to call
Baby, don't worry, forget your sorrow
'Cause love's gonna conquer it all, all

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

That's the way it is
That's the way it is, babe
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is.

Perjalanan doktor falsafah

Adapted from Kosmo....

Oleh IZYAN LIYANA MOHD. DARIF
izyanliyana.mdarif@kosmo.com.my

Mereka yang berjaya menamatkan pengajian hingga ke peringkat Ph.D menceritakan bahawa laluannya bukan mudah dan penuh dengan ranjau berduri. Namun, apakah yang menyebabkan mereka nekad?

Saya perlu bijak menguruskan masa. Setiap detik yang berlalu begitu berharga dan saya tidak pernah sia-siakan. Sebab itu selama tempoh pengajian, kehidupan saya bermula seawal pukul 4 pagi. Celik saja mata saya terus menuju ke komputer untuk menyiapkan laporan tesis. Idea-idea pada waktu pagi mencurah-curah memandangkan fikiran kita segar pada waktu itu.



Menceritakan pengalaman pahit dan manis sepanjang pengajian Ph.D, peminat filem Pirate of the Carribean itu menjelaskan, pembentangan viva Ph.D merupakan peristiwa yang sukar dilupakan.

Ini kerana salah seorang penilai viva telah bertanyakan soalan secara bertubi-tubi tanpa memberi peluang kepadanya menjawab. Lebih mengecewakan penilai berkenaan kurang menyokong kaedah penyelesaian Sharifah.

Namun berkat sokongan dan doa keluarga, akhirnya Sharifah yang telah menerbitkan lebih daripada 40 jurnal berjaya meyakinkan penilai itu dan membuat pembetulan laporan tesis dalam tempoh dua minggu saja.

- hardly consistent with the planning....so worry with this challenges

New workstation...from 714 to 926....

Since last week...my workstation office already moved to new place ...which I think is better than old one...although it was the highest level in that building- level 9.......the previous one was in level 7...actually all the phd students from 714 was divided to two different room which initially I bless get room at 526 but the allocation was determined by research institute's staff...so..I just do thankful, although I get 926's room...why?
at level 9- less people than at 526, the previous printer firstly was allocated here..where in 526's room, the research instiitute have to buy the new one which it took time and all student from 526 have to come to 926 for print..... , the higher level..the more beauty scenery of the campus and also I can reduce my weight(through use stairs if I want it..but lift is provided...)

Demi mu mak...I MUST strong...



Aku tetap di sisimu selalu
Di dalam susah di dalam senang
Aku tetap menyayangi dirimu
Begitulah peganganku
Biar apapun yang melanda
Aku tetap diriku bagai dulu

Aku tetap insan yang kau kenali
Kasihku tidak berbelah bagi
Aku tetap memberi yang termampu
Sepenuh jiwa ragaku
Tiada yang lebih bahagia
Bila aku melihat kau gembira

( korus )
Di… duga diuji
Tiada sekali kali aku mengalah
Berundur pergi
Biar… apa terjadi ku tetap
Percaya…
Kasih padamu kasih yang satu
Ku tetap aku

Tak inginku melihat kau derita
Tak sanggup aku merasakannya
Biar hebat dugaan yang mencabar
Aku tidak pernah gentar

Islam and Online Imagery on Malaysian Tourist Destination Websites

Abstract

In December 1996, TIME magazine published an article titled "Finding God on the Web," which projected how the Internet would shape information seeking on faith and religion. A decade later, the Web has become a popular tool for gathering religious information as well as information and imagery related to religious travel. Yet there is little research on religious destination imagery online. Imagery—positive or negative, pictographic or narrative—influences the selection of tourism destinations. This study explored online Muslim images in Malaysia via interviews and content analyses of pictures and text on tourism destination websites' homepages. The results reveal minimal portrayal of Muslim images by Malaysian tourism destination organizations. This study adds to the small body of research, especially in Muslim countries, on online religious imagery and suggests avenues for tourism operators in Malaysia and elsewhere to improve their online image with both Muslim and non-Muslim travelers.

The Benefits of Facebook "Friends:" Social Capital and College Students' Use of Online Social Network Sites

Abstract

This study examines the relationship between use of Facebook, a popular online social network site, and the formation and maintenance of social capital. In addition to assessing bonding and bridging social capital, we explore a dimension of social capital that assesses one's ability to stay connected with members of a previously inhabited community, which we call maintained social capital. Regression analyses conducted on results from a survey of undergraduate students (N=286) suggest a strong association between use of Facebook and the three types of social capital, with the strongest relationship being to bridging social capital. In addition, Facebook usage was found to interact with measures of psychological well-being, suggesting that it might provide greater benefits for users experiencing low self-esteem and low life satisfaction.

Social Network Sites: Definition, History, and Scholarship

Abstract

Social network sites (SNSs) are increasingly attracting the attention of academic and industry researchers intrigued by their affordances and reach. This special theme section of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication brings together scholarship on these emergent phenomena. In this introductory article, we describe features of SNSs and propose a comprehensive definition. We then present one perspective on the history of such sites, discussing key changes and developments. After briefly summarizing existing scholarship concerning SNSs, we discuss the articles in this special section and conclude with considerations for future research

Every Blog Has Its Day: Politically-interested Internet Users' Perceptions of Blog Credibility

Abstract

This study employs an online survey to examine U.S. politically-interested Internet users' perceptions of the credibility of blogs. The article focuses on the influence of blog reliance compared to motivations for visiting blogs in determining blog credibility. The study found that blogs were judged as moderately credible, but as more credible than any mainstream media or online source. Both reliance and motivations predicted blog credibility after controlling for demographics and political variables. Reliance proved a consistently stronger predictor than blog motivations. Also, information-seeking motives predicted credibility better than entertainment ones.

Its the climb....

I know it was not easy as the other journey..this journey really push me to be strong..how matter I am..how sensitive I am..how fragile I am..I really need to be strong....Hopefully I can reach the 'peak of mountain' soon..wallaualam..

Furthermore about my research methodology direction...hopefully she will accept what I trying to propose to her.Amin...

Ethical approval on da way....

Last month,I got this email: ....
I have received comments from the Panel regarding your ethical approval
application. Whilst they are satisfied with the way you have addressed
the data protect issues there are still a number of concerns about the
quality of the supporting documents. As a result I have been asked to
recommend that you and your supervisor/s contact Maria Kutar
(m.kutar@salford.ac.uk, 0161 295 3056), who is the Chair of the Panel
and from your faculty. Maria will be able to give you valuable advice
prior to resubmission.

Today,I just managed to meet Dr Maria Kutar to get her advice for the 'polisihing' the supporting documents that I have to edit.Luckily she help me on editing the supporting document.Now wait for my sv's checking before resubmission (hopefully) for the last one....after resubmission almost 3 times...

Try to cheer up my feelings..but erm..seems its still hard...since all of them still in 'jetlag'........

Today, I've settled on signed up the monitoring attendance at my postgraduate office...after this, by every 2 weeks I've to sign-in the simple form....then I've attended the research methodology's master class by Dr Polly.Although I missed her class almost 3 times...hopefully I'll get some benefits from her class(the class is not compulsory for phd student, but requested by my examiner during the IA last May).

My daughters still not going school yet,since they're still in 'jetlag' mode...me too...but today it could be decreased for me(since I can wake up earlier than yesterday)....awaked after slept on 3.30 p.m(now...7.35 p.m..wait for isya' prayer on 7.50 p.m),compare yesterday,I just awake on 2.00 a.m....erm..hopefully our 'jetlag' not too long time...My daughters seems excited going school but, their conditions still not suitable go to school yet , plus still wait from their school of their status...maybe next tomorrow or after school breaks(next week is autumn school break)..Honestly, my feelings still not happy at all...still 'homesick'....I'm already miss my family...although just came back here just few days only.....

Attendance Monitoring...

Now, start from this term, my school has did new regulation for international student - report to school every two weeks for ensure that we're in university..I've to do so this week....erm...just do it..since I'm international student here...

Dear International Student,

If you have already received this message, please treat it as a reminder
of the dates for signing-in.

This week is the first signing-in week.

I trust you are aware of the requirements of the UK Border Agency which
mean that the University is legally required to notify the Home Office
of international students who are absent from the University for a
prolonged period of time without authorization.

Salford Business School have implemented the following attendance
monitoring system which we hope will not cause too much inconvenience.

If you are not registered as an International 'Overseas' Student, please
let me know as soon as possible.

You are required to present yourself approximately every two weeks with
your Passport to the following office:

Maxwell Building Room 626 for Undergraduate students

Maxwell Building Room 225 for Postgraduate Taught students

Maxwell Building Room 602 for PhD/Research students

These meetings will be referred to as 'Contact Points'.

At each of these Contact Points, you must complete the attached Sign-in
form (blank copies will also be available at each of the above offices).

Completed forms are to be handed to the reception staff who will verify
them and check that they contain all the correct information.

Room Move week....

Unfortunately, my school room@ school office was in moving process now...so...I just work at home..just go school for official events only....

I have been asked to let you know that the move from room 714 will
definitely happen next week as previously indicated. Therefore you
will need to be packed up completely by the end of day tomorrow - Friday
16 October. Please make sure that you also empty your desk draws and
pack them up as well. You will also need to empty any pedestal drawers
that you have access to. Can I ask you to lock the draws of your desk
and pedestal and that you let myself or Julie have the keys when you
have done this as it is very unlikely that you will have the same desk
as before.



I understand the move will take most of next week to organise as the
porters will move the desks and your boxes out of 714 on Monday and
Tuesday (they cannot do full days as they have other duties throughout
the day) and into the new rooms. On Wednesday and Thursday the
technicians will move your computers. Hopefully the rooms will be ready
by Friday but that will only be if things go smoothly - let's hope so.
If you can stay at home for the week that would be the best option but
if you do need to come in and use computers then you can use the open
access areas on the 5th floor or come to see myself or Julie for access
to the postgraduate room 517 where there are a few desks that are not
being used at present
.

always worry in my journey....

Phd journey is tottally different than bachelor and master degre especially in independent research...and some people said this is the lonely journey....I admit that I've met some people who are doing research quiet similar with me but I still feel lonely .....why ??because the objective and target are totally different and what I worry now although I've in data collection stage but actually the works are not totally complete yet...insyaallah I'll do another pilot syudy for my second study where I've done for my pilot study for study 1 last nov..how big gaps that I have...this is maybe the study 2's location is at my homecountry, meanwhilde for study 1 was here, Manchester.I also have a few reason why it have big gaps about the time of pilot study for both of study.....I think I shouldn't reveal yet here....about the main fieldwork..erm..not totally settled yet...wish me all the best for second pilot study which scheduled around early Oct, insyaallah.....it means that???????????????????

will moving....

My office will being change to faculty office..so last wednesday and friday, I and my friends have to tidy up with keep it all our stuffs in huge boxes at our workstation for moving to another office soon..when and where still in question mark????...hopefully I 'll get new office at level 5 ..same level with my sv's office, although the office was on right end of level and my sv's was in left end of level..it doesn't matter...rather than at level 9..if something happend at lift...waaaaaaaa..too high to climb up..at the moment my office was at level 7 where normally I used lift to arrive it..and not too much us stairs(mana tak montel...syg kuar peluh....aiya...)
but definitely maybe on that time I was away already to somewhere...where??where????soon ..I'll explain in another entry...

Closing to approval....

After 2 weeks resubmit to ethical approval team, today I got the another respond to do some minor ammendments refer to appendixes that I had included with the form...erm actually I requestioned back to that person since the question are not clear with the 'high level' term for me...hopefully this is last one ammendments...I will do some ammendments for my appendix A only due to the statement which 'they' claimed not make sense( I always weak in doing make sense statement-my challenges too) since I always write what thrown out from my mind without think too much...erm..it seems that I have repolish my writing skills more and more....

Thursday, August 27, 2009

more 16 months 4 days

If I look at ticker factory besides this entry..my journey just leave more 16 months and 4 days BUT I never feels that I could finish within the time...maybe I have to add another 6 months or ....maybe another 12 months???erm...why I said like that???since lots of things that I have to do soon and I just remember few words about my journey ' onak2 duri yg telah dan bakal ku harung ni kdg2 terlalu sakit utk ditelan..terlalu pahit utk di kulum...terlalu payau utk dijamah'....

Insyaallah my report will have eight chapters and at the moment I couldn't start on my writings yet since my data collection still not settle down, during my interim report I just have three simple content of chapters where I feel just 5% from my whole report soon..erm..sometimes I feel worry too.......maybe after Oct, I will start looking back my literature review....and furthermore about the theory that I have to study...... I just manage can understand basically one theory where I have to look forward another 5 theories to suit with my findings....after I got the analysis solution I have to validate my findings before come out with the findings..then recommendation and conclusion chapter which will not easy as what people assume??really..the most hard part too I think...all in all in phd works everything must have justification..without it...is not phd ..walalhualam....

unstable emotion

when too much my things will meet deadline...my emotion not stable...mix feelings and unexpected fel will come out inside my heart...erm..sometimes I like this songs..maybe can reveal my feelings now....

reviewer....

hikmah of accepted journals...
today I was appointed to be a reviewer to one of paper related with my phd research and I was given 49 days to review the paper...hopefully I can finish my responsibilities within 10 days insyaallah....this is my first time being as reviewer, although no benefits in term in money..but the knowledge inside from the paper is more valuable.......wallahualam.....

9 important point why we must be motivated....

Adapted points from one of my 'subject' blogs....very good for me at the moment....


1.Motivasi diri sendiri adalah tenaga yang mengangkat diri seseorang itu ke sebarang tahap yang diingininya.


2.Orang yang benar-benar berjaya sentiasa sedar akan tanggungjawabnya dalam motivasi diri sendiri. Dia memulakan dari dirinya sendiri, kerana dialah yang memiliki kunci penggerak dirinya.

3.Alasan yang lumrah yang menyebabkan kegagalan seseorang itu ialah kerana mengabaikan sama sekali tenaga motivasi diri sendiri.

4.Adalah mustahil untuk memotivasikan diri orang lain, sebelum kita belajar memotivasikan diri kita sendiri.

5.Peluang akan berada di mana-mana bagi seseorang yang mengerti dan mengunakan motivasi diri sendiri.

6.Orang yang bermotivasi diri sendiri melibatkan diri, orang-orang biasa hanya berjanji.

7.Pada asasnya apa yang kita perolehi dari hidup ini bergantung kepada bagaimana kita menyesuaikan apa yang kita mahu dengan motivasi diri sendiri.


8.Tenaga motivasi diri sendiri datang dari satu tindakan rancangan peribadi teguh dan pelaksanaan rancangan tersebut dalam kehidupan anda setiap hari.


9.Jika kita tidak dapat memanafaatkan tenaga anda dan potensi anda sendiri maka mental kita akan terlantar sepanjang hayat..

Enabling Knowledge Conversion through a Sense of Virtual Community: A Case Study of Blog Community Conversations
By: Fa Martin-Niemi, Dr. Richard Greatbanks

Over the past decade, blogs have become an increasingly popular media for both personal expression as well as social networking. Initially used as a public forum for personal diaries, blogs continue to grow in variety and purpose. Blogs are now used as information sources, public forums for debate, and have even entered the domain of knowledge management (KM) as a location for communities of practice (CoP) discussions. Due to the virtual nature of the environment, and independent of face-to-face (FTF) interactions, blogs transcend many traditional barriers to participation, such as geographic location. Moreover, blogs have extended beyond communication tools to become virtual communities complete with their own social behaviours, and offering benefits inherently found within culture-sharing groups. Considering blogs from a KM perspective raises an interesting question; if blogs are virtual communities, do they provide an environment for knowledge conversion which has previously been considered the sphere of place-based communities? This research investigates blog conversations, specifically looking for evidence of enabling conditions for knowledge conversion from both tacit-to-tacit and individual-to-collective perspectives, within a blog context. The research methodology uses an adaptation of virtual ethnography to observe the extent to which blog posts and corresponding comments exhibit a sense of community between members. A collection of blog conversations were analysed to identify sense of community traits which also demonstrate a potential for knowledge conversion. This thematic analysis resulted in the identification of two major themes, enculturation and learning. Both these themes are underpinned by sense of community characteristics such as identity, common language use, influence and trust. In addition to revealing a sense of community among members, the findings of the study also confirm the knowledge conversion potential of blogs and their community.

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart

You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know Will melt away

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

It's a long road
When you face the world alone

No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
God knows Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Post again this song (had published here on 17072008)......Jawapan dipersimpangan...

Perjalanan hidup ini sangat panjang....
bagaikan kembara yg tiada hujungnya
Di sini ku berdiri di persimpangan
Jauh pandangan yang kini ku renung

Oh di manakah kau yang ku cari
Dalam kembaraku ini
Mengapa kau singkir ku ke tepi
Bagaikan ku tak berharga lagi

Perjalan hidup ini yang mencabar
Menguji segala kekuatan
Dalam kembara yang penuh debar
Ku berpegang jalanMu oh Tuhan
