Silent Treatment and Isolation...

Assalamu'alaikum (Peace be upon you)...

Human is a social creature...
We need each others' company...
That's why when someone is antisocial, he/she is considered as abnormal...

But what about silent treatment or isolation?
It is one of the worst type of punishment that it's being used against a serious offender in the prison...

Should we use it against certain people that we don't like?
Should they use it against us?
These are the ethical issues that demand answers...

One thing for sure, the person who is put under silent treatment can try to identify his/her wrongdoings and try to make amends...
or he/she can just ignore the silent treatment...
The second option sounds more convenient...

But for how long?

Just like ignoring the silent treatment itself, solving conflicts that you don't even know the cause is almost impossible...
Especially if it's a one-sided effort...

Life's so complicated, isn't it?

How Maple got it's name...

Once upon a time, there was a boy.
His name, Maple.

Optimistic, determined, hardworking, independent.
Those are not his qualities.
But, he's creative.

One day, he met two people at a food stall.
A guy and a girl.
They were arguing about Mathematics and ICT.
The guy stressed that Mathematics is better than ICT, whereas the girl argued that ICT is more important.

Then, Maple got an idea.
He proposed the idea of combining the two (Mathematics and ICT) into a much better and more important entity.

At first, they disagreed. But when they came to their senses, they eventually agreed.

Because of the original idea was Maple's, the pair decided to name the new entity "Maple".

Who could have thought that things like this could happen?

Future is made of dreams.

A short and simple survey was conducted among a few readers on the authenticity of this article.
The result is shown further down below.


What do you think?

Kalau takut...


Kalau takut terbakar,
Jangan main api.

Kalau takut gagal,
Jangan mencuba.

Kalau takut hantu,
Jangan tengok cerita hantu.

Kalau takut bola,
Jangan main bola.

Kalau takut jatuh,
Jangan naik basikal.

Kalau takut luka,
Jangan main pisau.

Kalau takut semua,
Baik jangan hidup.
