the only reason why i won't forget michael jackson

it happened in 1993..after my PMR (it was the 1st yr known as PMR and the new system of education for form three has been applied) (ehh..why it always happened during our years aa?? UPSR punn kita kena dulu, PMR punn kita jugak..hmm..)


nobody cared about us..nobody was bothered with whatever we were doing..they were all buzy with their studies and coming exams - final year, SPM and STPM!! so we were all like u r free and do whatever u wanna do, as long as u r inside the schoolgate..hehe..

so, as to show that the teachers still doing their job, many activities were held..like drama, nasyid (sekolah agama mana blh buat pertandingan karaoke..), pantun&syair competition, and i also forgot whatever i had that time..i was living in my-friends-own-world!! i think they also had netball competition between classes..there were 3 ummu habibah, ummu kalthsom, ummu salamah and ummu umairah..i was in 3 ummu salamah..

seriously..i couldn't remember any of the activities..i juz remembered we were moving from library (school library) to maktabah (hostel library - it is a library in arabic..;))..took the attendance..and then i think we were soooo free..(but i knw there's one eye that always following me and my other 11 frens - she's the reason why the whole school looked at us as we were such a trouble group in that school)..

but i do remember this one activity..english nasyid..every class need to present a nasyid but in english..the funny part is i also what was the song that sang by my classmates..seriously..i tried and tried and tried..nope..i totally forgot..besides, it was like 16 years ago!! (maaaaaaaaa..so old ahh?? that long?? waaahhhhhhhhh..) and i still remember the song that won that english nasyid competition..the 1st time i heard it, i also like it..and i definately know that this song will win..

whoever in 3 ummu kalthom that chose the song, congratulations..u were such a brilliant, who think outside of the box..i nvr thought that we actually allowed to do that..please know people, in 1993, it was hard to find an english nasyid..seriously..we juz had ..aaa..what was that group name?? the nasyid group from wat, smap kajang?? huwaaaaaaaa..i'm getting older..need to eat kismis aa balik nie...

the song was heal the world by no other than deceased michael jackson a.k.a allahyarham mikael..it has deep meaning and everytime i heard this song i remember the nasyid competition..and it reminds me whatever me and my friends were doing being a teenager..hahahha..so naughty..or we were juz being normal and other peoples were soooooo muslimah solehah..

we might not be the best that she hoped and wanted us to be, at that time..but gals, today we are someone and somebody that we should proud of..and these all were not because of her..we had our time and we cherished our moments..we did make our school a better place for us at that time..seriously, we did...

Heal The World lyrics

little girl talking

((i think about the gererations
and thay say thay want to make it

so that thay thay thay know it's a better world for them
and i think thay can make it a better place))


There's A Place In
Your Heart
And I Know That It Is Love
And This Place Could
Be Much
Brighter Than Tomorrow
And If You Really Try
You'll Find There's No Need
To Cry
In This Place You'll Feel
There's No Hurt Or Sorrow

There Are Ways
To Get There
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
Make A Better Place...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

If You Want To Know Why
There's A Love That
Cannot Lie
Love Is Strong
It Only Cares For
Joyful Giving
If We Try
We Shall See
In This Bliss
We Cannot Feel
Fear Or Dread
We Stop Existing And
Start Living

Then It Feels That Always
Love's Enough For
Us Growing
So Make A Better World
Make A Better World...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

And The Dream We Were
Conceived In
Will Reveal A Joyful Face
And The World We
Once Believed In
Will Shine Again In Grace
Then Why Do We Keep
Strangling Life
Wound This Earth
Crucify Its Soul
Though It's Plain To See
This World Is Heavenly
Be God's Glow

We Could Fly So High
Let Our Spirits Never Die
In My Heart
I Feel You Are All
My Brothers
Create A World With
No Fear
Together We'll Cry
Happy Tears
See The Nations Turn
Their Swords
Into Plowshares

We Could Really Get There
If You Cared Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
To Make A Better Place...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

You And For Me

You And For Me
Make A Better Place
You And For Me
Make A Better Place

You And For Me
save it for our children
You And For Me
heal the world we live in
You And For Me
save it for our children

ehem...(nak bangga sket)

i am the one who proposed that song and lent my MJ album (rasanya kaset je kot) black & white milik arwah ayah su ku for that nasyid purposed.
the reason why i proposed mainly because the meaning is so meaningful and the melody is soft and doesn't really sound like MJ.

mc na solo dok kalau tak silap and yes i remember that very2 much.
