juicy lamb, chicken, and seasoned rice

the tok imam at the masjid told us this one story last night. he liked the story so much that he has told the same story thrice in the past 3 Ramadans.

the story goes something like this...
one day, a teacher told his/her students that they were about to go on a field trip somewhere in the mountains...
and they were told to collect some rocks along the way. but then the teacher continued, that they'll regret it either way; whether they collected as many rocks as they could, or if they didn't bring anything home at all..

so, off they go...
through simple observation, (to simplify matters, the Hawthorne effect is considered to be absent..lol), the students could be classified into 2 groups... the lazy ones who were so lazy that they didnt pickup even a pebble home because they thought that they'll regret it anyway, so, why the extra effort?
and the 2nd group, the more adventurous and rajin ones, who out of curiosity took some rocks they found along the way home...

and when they got back, to their amazement, all the rocks turned into precious stones; rubies, emeralds, diamonds... you name it.

so, it was true, as the teacher said earlier, either you did what was told or not, you'll still regret it...

in conclusion, the tok imam said that the case is relevant to the month of Ramadan.. so, we need to do our best.....

anyways, i still think that a differrent outcome can be observed if the teacher were to told the students about the not-so-precious rocks turning into rubies and emeralds in the 1st place..
or will it still be the same??...

selamat beramal, berpuasa dan berbuka.....
