Ulasan buku: Macedonia ~ Alexander Agung : Hijab Raja Zulqarnain

Alhamdulillah…. usai membaca Macedonia ~ Alexander Agung : Hijab Raja Zulqarnain! Benar-benar bermanfaat dan menarik perhatian. Saya tidak sabar untuk menghabiskan pembacaan sehinggakan lunyai buku ini saya kelek ke hulu ke hilir. Kemuncaknya, saya habiskan bacaan ketika mertua sibuk mengemas setelah selesai majlis pertunangan adik ipar. Menantu contoh sungguh… opss! Baik punya cover. Sambil tidurkan anak perempuan saya yang baru berumur setahun, saya belek helaian demi helaian terakhir.

Fuhhhh.. memang pengembaraan minda ke dimensi yang lain. Takjub dengan pembawaan Tuan Web Sutera. Karya pembuka mata dan jiwa. Siapa sangka karakter Alexander yang dipaparkan di layar perak itu bertentangan sekali dengan yang diceritakan dalam kitab Al-Quran. Hujah-hujah yang dibentangkan secara naratif mampu membuat menguatkan keinginan seseorang untuk mencari kebenaran. Padanlah ada yang benar-benar terkesan dan menerima hidayah.

Tidak dapat disangkal, ianya adalah sebuah novel di mana ada adaptasi dan tokok tambah untuk menyedapkan jalan cerita. Tetapi saya suka ambil isinya. Isinya tetap berlandaskan kebenaran. Pengaruh novel sejarah seperti ini pernah menyebabkan mahasiswa menggunakannya sebagai bahan rujukan (cerita benar ini! karya Dr. FT). Sudahnya, zasss… kena pancung dek pensyarah. Samada boleh atau tidak dijadikan rujukan, itu perdebatan di lain waktu.

Bab kegemaran saya adalah berkenaan Yakjuj dan Makjuj kerana saya tidak banyak ketemu bahan ini. Sungguh! Sungguh takjub. saya bersetuju dengan hujah Alexander Agung itulah Raja Zulqarnain.
Tahniah, Tuan Web Sutera. Tahniah kerana berjaya membongkar hijab ini. Saya teruja untuk memburu bahan bacaan dari penulis lain berkenaan skop yang sama.

Rowing – the preparation

Rowing needs more training than any other sports.. The passion, the will & the sacrifice. Rowing also defines athlete’s body more than other sports.. The benefit is more, injury is less.. To be perfect in rowing, it takes years of experience & training…
Preparation for competitive rowing is quite different from normal training. The mentality, the physical workout.. the ergo tests & water test… something to be missed when you are out of field.

Competitive rowing : training for it is like pyramid system.. Initially, lots of endurance & aerobic workout.. then intermediate (add some speed) & finally few weeks towards race, pure speed work & short training period…
Also, it requires 3 factors to compliment. Training, nutrition & rest. Failing to have one of these will not do good for the body as well… Hence, we need to plan well & get the best out of it.

Dongshan River Water Park has been chosen as the venue to host the event which will be held from 2 – 9 November 2009.The selection was made following the Asian Junior Rowing Championships which were held earlier this month in Hong Kong. Voted by more than 20 Asian member countries,Taiwan was chosen over a bid from Singapore. This will be the second time that the Dongshan River Water Park has hosted an international event. In 1995 the venue held the 7th Asian Rowing Championships. The Asian Rowing Championships are held every second year and were last held in 2007 in Chung-Ju, Korea. The Asian Junior Rowing Championships, which are held yearly, will take place at the same time in Taiwan. Dongshan River is considered one of Taiwan’s top scenic spots. It is an ecological reserve and contains more than 340 different species of birds. It is an artificial canal and is popular for dragon boating events. The Yulan County bureau hopes that bringing the rowing championships to the area will help stimulate rowing in the region. Yulan County is on the east coast of Taiwan.
The World Rowing team values feedback.
