My Lucky Stars (Origami)

I love to make some creation from paper, it's called origami. It's really a fun thing. Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, ori means "folding" and kami means "paper". This art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished model through folding techniques. The famous origami model is the Japanese paper crane. I usualy make this model. There are also some simple models, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make sophisticated designs. Generally the design of origami begin with a square sheet of paper whose one side may be different pattern, prints, or colors.

This time, I've done another model of origami. It's called lucky star. I made it from a strip of paper, it's about 9 to 11 inches long by half-an-inch wide. Making this strip can be done by cutting a piece from the long end of a sheet of printer paper/ A4/ HVS or you can get the strip paper from book store. The lucky star origami is easy to make, first make a knot near one end of the strip. Then, flatten the knot, but don't fold it tightly. After that, flip the knot over, and tuck the loose end into the back of the knot. Wrap the long end around the star. Flip the lucky star over, and tuck the loose end into the back side. The last step is pumping up the star, place your thumbs and forefingers on side of the star edges. Inflating the lucky star is exciting!

It's easy to do. So, why don't you make your own lucky stars?

Keep The Children Healthy during Ramadan

Shaum/Sawm is one of The Five Pillars of Islam. Ramadan (a complete fasting), we do the fast for about 29 or 30 days in a row. It is the Holy Month for Muslims. Those twelve years old and above must complete their fast from dawn to sunset.  I've started to teach my child to fast from the last two years when he was 6 years old, even he's just done his first fast for only a couple hours, at least he tried. There are many even as young as four or five are encouraged to fast for a few hours a day during Ramadan by their parents. It's to begin appreciating the significance of the Holy month of Ramadan. Alhamdulillah , I'm very grateful, this Ramadan my son now is 8 years old and so excited about following Ramadan completely.

Conducting A SWOT Analysis for Business

I’ve been dealing with business for more than 3 years. Conducting a SWOT analysis for my business after years of operation is a great practice. It allows me to consider my business position, identify areas of improvement, and capitalize on opportunities for further growth.  SWOT analysis holds significance for several reasons in business. It’s a strategic planning tool used to evaluate a business venture, project, or in this case, any situation that requires strategic assessment.
