Tom Yum Yum

Tom Yum Delight

On Sunday, the Uztaz brought the Islamic Society members for Tom Yum lunch somewhere in Seremban. The food was good, the company was excellent and to top it off, I bought two ringgit worth of banana fritters from across the street and finished it all. *Burp!*

Not so long ago, UCL’s Islamic Society made headlines when Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to bomb a plane on the way to Detroit on Christmas Day. Since then, news was that hundreds of Muslim students’ data were sent to the CIA.

The original purpose of any Islamic Society for that matter is to provide support for Muslim students. For example, if you are studying abroad for the first time you will want to know how to get your prayer times, purchase Halal food, find the nearest mosque or company to celebrate Aidilfitri and Aidiladha away from home.

However, there are some people out there who take advantage of this group of people to spread their revolutionary crackpot ideas.

Advise to all Muslim students out there, whatever talks or debates you attend, take it in with a pinch of salt. Do not swallow the ideas they are trying to get across, whole. Give yourself some time to think about it. It is not merely whether it is right or wrong. Reality is not just black and white-there are grey areas too. So think hard, and reflect.
