Blog Baru

Terasa ingin berblog baru,
dalam bahasa melayu,

suasana di london yang tidak menentu,
dimana haluan yang hendak dituju,

tidak mahu lagi bergantung pada facebook,
dunia yang palsu belaka,
seperti myspace and friendster

tetapi akan berblog seperti biasa,
beribu-ribu gambar dalam flickr,
jumpa saya di sana.

Meet me halfway


it was back then in middle of 2007. i was in the train heading my way to kl central, standing while grasping a handle bar for support. it was packed as usual with passengers some big, some small. i like to take note of people, their eye contact, their movement and grace some sort of personification they embraced. looking out the window, i noticed a reflection. then came a voice screaming my name in the middle of crowded people. "rashaad!". i wonder who would that be. puzzled, disgruntled, i turned around and i was utterly shocked to see my friend, fidzry! i got to know him from myspace, we live in the same neighbourhood, he's staying in london while working as a waiter over there at that time.

"hey rashaad. how are you doing mate?"
"hey fidzry! i'm doing good man."

i only remember that part. the rest was history. and suddenly he took something out off his pocket and gave it to me, a sourvenir. that thing up there in the picture. i'm not sure what it is called.

"hey man, here's a gift from london", with slightly british accent. "thank you very much", i replied. we chat for awhile and the next stop came, i had to make an exit at kl central.

that thing up there is still in my room. and i'm leaving to london in 54 days' time to further my studies ...

So long Ogy!


“A friend cannot be considered a friend until he is tested in three occasions: in time of need, behind your back and after your death” - Ali ibn Abi Talib r.a

Yesterday was the 6th time I went to the airport. I feel it's like my second home. lol. I feel like I know every corner of it, where to park and the least thing to mention is the toilet.

Firstly was Zikri, then Asif, followed by Sofiya, Aidil Radzi and Adlan Wafi. So yesterday was Ahmad Fahim aka Ogy's turn. Almost half of the UiTM Faculty Of Accountancy students were there and I was lucky to be among them because some of Ogy's friends are my friends too and it is a small world anyway. Balik-balik pon jumpa orang sama gak.

Anyway, he's going to University of Hertfordshire.

Ogy, he was my president in class 417/517 at mrsm, my partition mate in form 5, my lepak friend since then. 5 years of friendship, and we can feel the bond. chewahhh.

So, anyway nothing much to say here, just wanna wish you have a safe journey and Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Maaf Zahir Batin.

Looking forward to see you soon.

Cheers.

There's an alien in my room




Today's the 17th day of Ramadhan. I have been contemplating much of what I'm doing. Everyday is the same routine. Sahur in the morning. Break fast at night and after that terawih at masjid negeri. If break fast (iftar) with friends outside, than I'll definitely miss terawih. If tomorrow there's no class then you can see me online until sahur. Basically the cycle keeps on going which is very unproductive and somehow I feel tired, tired and tired. I lost 4kg so far and by the end of ramadhan I'll be skinny dead. Somehow the weight gain doesn't materialise that much nowadays, you just wanna keep it a balance but somehow there's no positive progression with it.





The last time I went out shopping was with Aiman Bomby the week before. We went to Mid Valley and after that to Pavillion for freaking 10 hours! and I managed only to get 1 freaking item from Zara, a Hulk t shirt that I wanted to buy for MTV worldstage. Aiman bought motherfucker a lot of stuff, I swear if i had a car at that time, I had ran over him haha. And ohhhh I saw Natasha Hudson and she's really beautiful .... woohooooo





But the thing that I want to talk about is I have been hempap for the fourth time since ramadhan today. It makes me wonder if the devils are being locked up now, how on earth is this thing able to penetrate me? or maybe things. These things that we cannot see with our naked eyes but only to those who have a really deep faith in Islam or religious something.

Because my datuk can see these things that I can't. Like at one time, this Jin wanted to kiss my nenek and he wacked it.

So just now after sahur I slept again, and I woke up and was unable to make a single move. I could feel this thing sitting on my stomach and gripping my hand with such a massive force that I couldn't able to fight it. I couldn't open my eyes either. The temperature of the room was normal. And I know I was not dreaming because it happened to me before. To my dad, my mum and my sister.






And the worst part, when I could feel it's breath on my nostril, around my mouth .. and it touched my lips. Ingatkan benda halus ni perempuan ke ape. Scary giler weyh. Masa tu kalau nak lawan memang tak boleh dah no matter how much effort you try. Then I recited ayat Kursi dalam hati because I couldn't open my mouth. First recition nothing happened, and then 2nd time nothing happened also after awhile somehow this thing left from my bed and I was unfrozen. After that teros bangun lah.



Scientifically, it's called sleep paralysis.

Physiologically, sleep paralysis is closely related to the paralysis that occurs as a natural part of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, which is known as REM atonia. Sleep paralysis occurs when the brain awakes from a REM state, but the body paralysis persists. This leaves the person fully conscious, but unable to move. The paralysis can last from several seconds to several minutes "after which the individual may experience panic symptoms and the realization that the distorted perceptions were false".[5] As the correlation with REM sleep suggests, the paralysis is not entirely complete; use of EOG traces shows that eye movement can be instigated during such episodes.[6] When there is an absence of narcolepsy, sleep paralysis is referred to as isolated sleep paralysis (ISP).[7] "ISP appears to be far more common and recurrent among people of African descent than among whites or Nigerian Africans",[8] and is often referred to within African communities as "the Devil on your back."[9]

This is some excerpt taken from Wikipedia. But honestly, compared to that with this, do you believe dinosaurs really exist? There's a book from Harun Yahya called The Quran Leads the Way To Science that can enlighten this issue.

A professional mistake




Your alarm rings, signaling another brand new day. You get up, looking forward for another new day of challenge, another new day to learn. After washing up, you put on your office outfit, giving you that professional look, one that you believe many out there envy. Breakfast follows (perhaps), and you head off to your office. You’re one of the earliest to arrive, ahead of all your superior and when they come in later, they greet you and you feel all charged up for another productive day. Plenty to do and learn and hence, you are prepared to stay back late to do all that is necessary...(read more)

If you’re currently doing a degree in finance, accounting or law, the above is probably what you’ve been waiting for all these years. You work your ass off (well… most of you) in university because it’s your dream to join one of those big glamorous firms out there in the market. Lawyers and accountants are the usual suspects for this curse. Once graduated, all of them will run like headless chicken towards those big firms. If you’re an accounting student… you want to be an auditor in one of the Big-4 right?

Well, if you do make it, it’s like a dream come true. In such firms, you get a personal computer, maybe a notebook (wow!). All your stationeries are free, and it’s also the first time you step into a ‘pantry’, where you can make your own coffee, just like those nice offices in TVB series. Next, you get an exclusive e-mail, the domain after your name is not the ordinary @gmail.com or @hotmail.com or @yahoo.com… No, it’s not, it’s your-name@a-big-and-glamorous-firm. com. You can’t wait to tell that to your friend. Then comes the feeling of giving a business card with your name on it, and it’s not any other business card, it’s one with your name on it, it’s one that signifies you’re an employee with a-big-and-glamorous-firm. And… the word below your name is not a lowly “accounts executive”… the word below your name is exclusive… the word below your name is… “Associate”. And when your friend gives you the “Wow, you’re an associate with this firm?”… you get into instant orgasm.

3 or 6 months into your job, you will then be experiencing the euphoria of saying… I-am-very-busy… I-have-a-lot-work… I-worked-till-very-late-last-night… I-can't-make-it-for-the-gathering-cos-I-have-to-work-this-weekend. Yeah, it’s an euphoria because to you, it’s a privilege to be busy, it’s very cool to work late, you’re very proud to work in during weekends. When you utter such words, a sense of arrogance and pride radiates from you. You feel great because working so hard means you learnt a lot of things, those not in the professional industry somehow looks lowly to you. You feel big, you feel you’re a level smarter than them. Reality will tend to sink in within 2 years or so, though the duration seems to be getting shorter and shorter now with the younger generation.

First, you will probably ask yourself, how come a graduate like you must do all sorts of donkey jobs such as photocopying, checking invoices, going through pile and pile of documents and filing. You will also be wondering how come your superior whom you once looked up to have to suck up to clients. Oh yeah… most all clients are unreasonable.

If you’re an accountant, you will probably realise that there is no such thing called a ‘balance’ sheet. It’s balanced because you did the balancing act so that your big boss can sign on it and certify it as ‘true and fair’. Yeah… signing on accounts, the job that you once dreamed of… isn’t exactly all a bed of roses. You then realise that you will probably never reach that “just-need-to-sign-only stage” but hey… it’s ok, you probably hate that job by now. When you tell your client something, chances are you are just as blur and confuse as them. But you have to act as though you’re an expert because you’re the con-sul-tant. This is just a glimpse of it.

Now, all the late nights and irregular meals will probably caused you to age 8 years in 2 years. Those I-am-very-busy… I-have-a-lot-work…I-worked-till-very-late-last-night… I-can't-make-it-for-the-gathering-cos-I-have-to-work-this-weekend will take its toll on your body and it will show. You will probably look very skinny… or very fat… you will certainly look old and worn out. Working late and spending weekends in the office is no longer a cool thing but absolute stupidity. But hey… you will still have to do it, because there’s still much work to be done.

By now, all your friends who ended up as salesmen or doing other thing except being a professional, those whom you felt superior to are driving anything but a proton. But for you, it’s time to think whether you should buy a proton because your perodua is beginning to give you problem. Of course, if your father is well-connected fella, things can be different. But if you’re not, tough luck. You’ll be wondering how come you’re generally under-paid. Those exposure and learning curve that you once craved are no longer relevant. You want to make more money. But unless you’re a partner of the glamorous firm, money can be a little tough to come by.

At this point of time, probably after 3, 4 or 5 years, you finally realised that document you signed when you first joined the glamorous firm was nothing but lies. Then, you decide to ply your trade in the commercial world, you leave those glamorous firm. You think joining a commercial firm will bring about a good change, not knowing that such move means you switched from being a ‘profit centre’ to a ‘cost centre’. One of the main effect of the switch is that you will be working doubly hard compared to the profit centre, which probably includes a lot of late nights too… but your salary and bonus is much lower compared to profit centre. What does this mean… a story for another time.

One thing for sure… your morning will now be something like…,

Your alarm rings, signalling another day… another weekday. You get up, after snoozing the alarm a million and one times. You hope today is Friday, but it’s not, and you feel like shit. You think of a million and one reasons to take MC, but you realised you have to go to office because you failed to finish the report due today though you stayed till 10pm last night. You tell yourself you need to change job, just like how you have been telling yourself in the last 1 year. Once in office, you’re in a dilemma because you want time to go slower so that you can finish your work but yet, you want time to go faster so that you can leave the office and go for lunch.

During lunch, you will bitch with your colleagues about work and probably the bosses. You will all talk about so many people who seem to be doing so well except for you. You realised you should have done something else while in university. You realised you may have made a mistake in life… a mistake in being a professional… you have made… a professional mistake.









This article is taken from here.


Frankly speaking, this is the biggest mistake I've done in my life by doing ACCA at the very young age. I always wanted to do a degree, more relax and casual instead of pushing your limits doing a professional course. It makes me wonder how can I even cope with the working life next year where I'm myself in need of guidance to face all the obstacles yet still young and fresh. But I hope this mistake will somehow turn into something worthwhile. Anyway what's life without challenges?

aka

I was sitting in the car with X, and she complained how boring my blog is nowadays. I rarely update she said and lately the posts concerned nothing about me, my private life. I admit there is lack of colours of what I'm writing compared to last year, and it is monotonous. She even said, kalau visit sebulan sekali pon takpe in a funny way but I think she really means it. I couln't agree more with her. She's right. Don't you think so?

If it is that so, then I'm sorry. I'm sorry I could not satisfy your feelings and devotion up to certain extent of what I'm expressing. I'm not Raja Petra who can create colours beyond boundaries in writing. I'm neither a writer nor a journalist. But I wish I have the time to write something to cheer up you people but I'm running against it instead. How sad is that?

I don't know whether you want to call it exaggeration but this is just a blog which is so much different compared to real life. You can expect anything out there but here with only small space ... Sometimes I feel my privacy
is coarsely and intrusively invaded but yet I just feel like writing it out and sometimes I have this feeling of 'what the heck I've written here' and ended up deleting it. How funny I thought.

I can't see what's the purpose of having one but just spacing out my thoughts, unbottling it. At first it was black and white, so I coloured it to make it colourful but as time flies by it worn out like it is now. And the thought of pressing the keyboard and put it into writing seems not there, pausing for awhile, thinking and thinking and trying to make it sensible but I'm still not reaching there.

Wanna be on Top?

Today we decided to go hiking and our destination is Broga Hill, located near University of Nottingham, Semenyih. Finally an outdoor activity that I was looking forward to distress. Bryan, Alex, Phei Chuen, Imran and me met up at Indah Villa which is not indah at all, besides our college at 5.30am sharp and we began our journey ... Well, actually not hiking but we planned to see sun rise

Broga Hill is a really nice place to take pictures and if you have a dslr you might as well bring it along, you don't want to miss the fun but it's just that I didn't bring any cameras and I had to rely on my camera handphone, the one and only SE K810i which is really reliable :)

We took 2 cars, me with Imran and the other 2 with Bryan and luckily Imran brought along his hp GPS, so to find the way there was not a hassle. Arrived there at 7.00am and we had breakfast at an old chinese restaurant and by 8am we started walking up towards the hill.

the path turned out to be not safety and narrow and steep but we managed to climb up safely


scenery from above, you can see the small village here. a really breathtaking view.


gua capek



cuak oh gayat esp tempat tinggi


we can almost feel it baby! touch the sky!


haha check out alex. she's like a pregnant woman. lol



we finally reached on top! great effort there!























sometimes suicide is not the answer















pc missed the fun, she couldn't climb up this time around :/
weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

satisfaction feeling after half an hour walking up the hill

overall it was simply the best! lesson of the story, next time bring a camera! We made our way back at 10.30am

Friday, July 24, 2009

Papa was a rolling stone, mama developed a habit


Today, at 4.30pm mummy was crying. I could see the disappointment in her face, like glass shattered on the floor or maybe worse than that. Her flight to Frankfurt is due tonight at 11.50pm but daddy just realised her passport expired on May 26th 2009 just now. JUST NOW! Today is June 20th 2009.

Dad and I went to Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia at PKNS just now to check out whether it was open but we knew already it was closed, heck just to try our luck. For crying out loud, it's Saturday. The thought of using Kiosk to renew the passport came out before that, we thought we could renew it within minutes. But still closed.

I called my friend, Fahim Ogy since his father is working with MAS. The idea was ridiculous; I switched plane with my mum that means I will board the plane tonight and mum will buy another ticket on Monday and catch up with her on Tuesday at Muenster Airport.

"Mane boley switch ticket." A reply from Ogy later on with corrobative support from my dad.

We can cancel or postpone the ticket but since it's through a third party, too much hassle.

Yeah I know already the outcome of it but just trying out my luck. Well, at least Ross switched the flight with Rachel in FRIENDS but why can't we do the same? Heck, I hate this policy.

Twilight


Finally I get my hand over Twilight book at MPH just now. Guess what, I haven't seen the movie either and all the hype about this blockbuster movie makes me wonder. I thought of buying the whole set; New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn but I guess I go about this one first.

A friend of mine, a guy, reads this so I guess at least there's a representative from the other sex side who gave a good review about it. Yeah, sure why not.

Is the book much better than the movie? Well definitely maybe.

Thank you mum and Stephenie Meyer.

Cheers.

Sejarah Bola Sepak


IS HE REALLY WORTH £80 MILLION? Apparently, Real Madrid ardently thinks so and brandished the RM462 million offer to Manchester United, which found it hard to refuse. The English club permitted Real to talk terms with Ronaldo but a final decision won't be forthcoming until June 30.

Semalam Dalam Sejarah

SOALAN :Permainan bola sepak adalah sukan paling popular di dunia. Kenapa didalam permainan bola sepak memerlukan 45minit setiap separuh perlawanan? Kenapa tidak 30 min atau 1 jam?

JAWAPAN :Didalam satu pasukan mempunyai 11 pemain, setiap pemain ada tugas masing-masing. Tugas yang dipikul amat berat. Berdasarkan pada soalan diatas, dalam setiap separuh perlawanan telah ditetap kan 45min. Mengikut kajian sainstifik, ia berdasarkan pada maklumat berikut :-

- Setiap Pasukan mempunyai 11 pemain, didalam satu perlawanan bola sepak, terdapat 2 pasukan bertanding,

-Dua pasukan bermaksud 22 pemain.

- Setiap pemain membawa bersama mereka 2 biji bola kecil, bermaksud 44 biji bola kecil kalau dicampur 2 pasukan tadi.

-satu biji bola lagi ada ditengah-tegah padang.

-jadi kesemuanya 45 biji bola yg ada didalam separuh sesi perlawanan.

-45 biji bola = 45 min

2 min masa tambahan kita ambil bola yang dibawa oleh Pengadil

Moral

Jika kita nk tambah masa perlawanan, kita kena lah tambah pemainnya sekali. Baru Seimbang

Please lah, please lah!

I just started my exams. Frankly speaking, I think it was hard. Really hard. I don't know whether I can pass or not. F8 audit and F9 financial management both are on the border line. 50-50. First it was audit. Well the spot questions did not come out exactly. I almost thought that I had it in my hand, then when I opened the questions paper, to my disappointment, the first question, the same topic repeated again from December 2008 sittings, which many of us could have just ignore. Thought that it had been tested so it would not be the same again. Overall, it was average but also quite hard possibility of passing still there Insyaallah.

The second day went on with a drag, it was the best effort it could be possibly be, short notes every here and there, I think I was more prepared in F9 than F8. So I entered the exam hall with a better feeling that this exam, F9 will be much better than F8. It started like heaven I tell you, the first question I did okay. Weighted average cost of capital, Capital structure, Modigliani and Miller Model. Then I opened the second question. I thought hey biar betol this is ACCA exam question? NPV, IRR, Payback maybe part a) was little bit hard.

And the third question, to my horror it was the toughest one, 25 marks, I tried to do, I tried again, then I stopped for awhile. I was stonning there for awhile, the paper was there, waiting to be written. But it was hopeless. I skipped. Then, the final question 25 marks. Bapak susah! Half and hour before exam finished, I thought I had better do something, at least write something. I was loosing the hope already thinking for sure I am going to fail this paper. I skipped all the calculations and attempted the theory parts. Betol salah tak tau lah.

I really hope I passed these papers. All papers. Please lah, please lah!

Penn State Malaysian student found dead below Abrams Falls


Al-fatihah. I got this news from my friends who are studying there.

By Iva Butler

A college student who was to fly home to Malaysia next week was found dead at the base of Abram's Falls at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Nublan Zaki Norhadi, who was 20 years old, was with a group of about 30 college students from Penn State. This was not school-sponsored, but a trip planned to the Smokies by the students themselves, said Bob Miller, Smokies public information officer.

They arrived at the Abram's Falls Trailhead at 5:30 p.m. Sunday and got to the falls at 6:20 p.m.

Miller said it is unclear whether Norhadi was wading on the series of steps and was swept away to the base of the falls or if the jumped in and was swimming and them swept away by the strong current. Thanks to recent rains, the water at the falls was higher than usual, which made the current even stronger.

"Two of his buddies attempted to rescue Norhadi, but were also being swept away and had to be pulled out by other buddies," Miller said.

Swimming is not banned at the falls but there is a sign warning of the strong current and hazards at the falls, he added.

"It would have taken a strong swimmer to get out of the current and the other students said Norhadi was not a strong swimmer," Miller said.

Abrams Falls is located 2.5 miles up the trail that starts off a stub road in Cades Cove that is located to the right just before the Cable Mill.

The body was found at 1:30 p.m. Monday 30 feet down by the Blount Special Operations Response Team (BSORT) divers, Miller said. They arrived at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the falls. Three pack mules were used to carry in their equipment.

The park does not have a dive team. The man had been reported missing at 7 p.m. Sunday.

In April 2004 a 14-year-old from Vine Middle School in Knoxville drowned under the same falls.

Bikinis and blunders


As much as I hate Adam Lambert, frankly speaking I think he deserves to be crowned the next American Idol. He deserves it 77.777%. I am judging this based on their much anticipated performance yesterday.

But the darkest horse of all emerged as the champion, Kris Allen. The judges did not give their standing ovation like the one given to Adam last time, and even Kris Allen was still in the state of denial when the result was announced. Too humble I guess.

After all the two of them are the best competitors we have had so far compared to David Archuleta and David Cook of last season.

I honestly think America's Danny Gokey fans, who possibly defected to Kris's side after Gokey left and effectively bridged that million-vote gap between Adam and Kris.

But don't you think Adam is the most overrated Idol of all time?

What was your favourite moment on the American Idol finale?
a) Kris Allen winning
b) Kara surprising Bikini Girl
c) Security taking away Tatiana
d) Queen with the finalists?

Open Letter to Ku Li

Ku Li,

It is time for you to quit UMNO and join PR.
That will show that you are really sincere to the people of Malaysia.
Leave the UMNO and their cronies with Corrupted Najib.

I don't think that Najib at all will agree for the SNAP election.
In the short period the people of Malaysia already hate because of his dirty tricks lead Perak in the mess.
I believe he is the person who plot the downfall of PR government in Perak.

Leave him alone, Ku Li you come out of the dirty UMNO.
Many will follow you and join PR.







On the lighter note, she was buried as a Muslim today, regarding my previous post.

Reader Discretion is Advised. It Contains Issues of Religion


Mum told me just now about her UiTM friend, if I'm not mistaken her name is Elaini who's mother just passed away yesterday. Elaini currently doing her PhD in New Zealand and she has a home at condominium Section 9, Shah Alam. Mum couldn't go for Elaini's mother's burial. This story was told by mum's friends and I was told by her moments ago.

Elaini's mother is a chinese converted muslim when she married to Elaini's father. She's a Sabahan if I'm not mistaken. She fell sick 2 months ago and Elaini brought her mother to live at Section 9 while she's studying in NZ to take care of her. So, Elaini's husband with her son/daughter take care of her mother here.

Anyway, Elaini's father divorced her mother when Elaini was younger. Elaini has a brother.

This morning, my mum's friends visited them at Section 9. Yang tolong mandikan jenazah husband dia and anak dia. Jenazah siap dimandikan dan dikapankan.

Pagi tu, I think a relative of them from Sabah, he's a Christian came to their home all the way from Sabah. He wanted to take the jenazah with him and buried as a Christian.

And that guy and the family members had a really massive argument. Really, Elaini's friends were hopeless and they couldn't do anything because is was a family issue.

Anyway, her mother is a muslim and I do not know whether her mother practised as a Muslim.

Wallahuallam.

And that relative from Sabah wanted her to bury as a Christian and he even called MAS Kargo to pick the jenazah this very day.

I do know how's the issues resolved but if I'm not mistaken again, Elaini's brother managed to come to an agreement with elaini's husband and relative from Sabah that their mother will be buried as a muslim in Sabah not at Shah Alam.

Aku tak tau macam mana nak cerita, I guess I lost many points there but MAS Kargo arrived at that place with a coffin. The coffin was carried by 2 Indians and the very sad part was when Elaini's mother was put into the coffin by them, and it was nailed and to be sent off to Sabah this very day.

And when they had the argument with the relative from Sabah, the family members contacted the JAIS and JAIS was helpless. Diorang tanya lah macam mana nak settle this problem and the JAIS fellow said if her mother's IC card stated Islam and she should buried as Islam. Of course Elaini's family wants her mother to be buried as a Muslim but what about the siblings of Elaini's mother who claimed that she's not a Muslim anymore? And diorang call banyak kali lagi and JAIS was helpless and they just ignore the phone call.

When mummy told me this, memang sedih lah, bulu roma sume naik .. Normally I listen to this in news but when I am facing this in front of my eyes, tak terkate weyh. As a Muslim, I'm very saddend by this.

Tonight Elaini will retun to KLIA from NZ and straight to Sabah.

Al-fatihah.

P.S. I love You


To my dearest mum,

Happy Mother's Day,
I do not know how much I can express here,
but one thing for sure you will always be in my heart,
Happy Mother's Day again.

p/s: Sorry mummy I stepped on your laptop last time and it cracked.

Loves,
your son

Picture insight: We bought a coaster holder for mum, thought it would be much used for her. :)

Sudden Realisation

I feel quite ashamed of what I'm writing, nothing concern anything about Islam. Well, maybe a little. I wish I could write something to remind myself, my friends and the community at large about how we go about with our life, a reminder to us not to forget the Almighty and pray 5 times a day.

I didn't know my uncle has a blog too, yes my very own uncle, Ustaz Abdul Halim Abdullah. I'm really very proud of him.

A walk to remember

Faiz, please my trials start tomorrow and to make things worse I can't even concentrate on my studies. I had this feeling just now, and this heart beats fast.

Well maybe if you read my previous post, you'll know what I'm talking about. Disturbia

Just now I was at college, and the day before my cousin called me. He's in form 5 now studying at smkdu. He said he's going to my college today to have a visit to look at the environment here with his classmates. It's a school trip anyway to my college. I thought hey sure why not to meet him there.

So today during lunch break I met him at the cafe. I was looking for him and later near San Francisco Coffee I bumped into some of his friends. They all know me because we have met last time at Faiz's open house during raya. They were taken aback to see me there. I said hye to them and asked them where's my cousin. Somewhere near there, I was assured.

I was walking towards the bookstore and to my surprise she was there. I casually smiled at her and she smiled back at me and was surprised also to see me here. Then I bumped into another friend of him, Amir he's 200cm tall and finally Faiz just a few metres from where I was standing.

We had a chat somewhere there. Long time no see kinda talk. Lets get straight to the point.
Okey, again I'm in this awkward situation. I wanted to talk with her and at the same time I didn't want. But I don't want to loose this opportunity. Really awkward weyh. I couldn't imagine. Okey, anyway she looks like Sharifah Amani. Get the picture?

So, when I looked back at the place she was sitting, she has gone! "Faiz dia kat ne?" I was looking around and finally I saw her sitting at the photostate shop. At that time it was 12.30 something and within minutes they had to go back. I was like malu sangat weyh. He and Amir were sitting beside me. I was really reluctant to go and planned to ask my cousin to say hye to her from me inside the school bus later. They were pushing me to go there. Really pushing me on.

Suddenly I saw her just baru berdiri and tengah pakai bag. Alamak! I was like fark. It's now or never.

Finally I gained my courage to walk towards her, it was a momentum. Every step I took, this heart beat even faster.
and finally I was walking beside her and we were chatting.

Oh, and she wore baju kurung sekolah. sangat sweet.

:)

Tonight I'm going to make a wish facing the stars,the moon & the deep blue sky,the land,the water,heaven and earth with a glimpse of shooting star

This will be my last post ... as a teenager. sorry readers for the lack of updates or maybe lack of ideas. i just can't help it that i have to face the reality that i'm going to be 20 in few hours' time. erk. 20? no, i don't look like one? yeah great. 20 years have passed just like that and i feel like i was born yesterday. erk tipulah tu. but what the hell i've been doing for all these years?

i cut my younger sister's finger when she was 2 at that time i was 4. i've been in accident when i was 6, got hit by a motorcycle when i wanted to cross the road, mata lebam wow. i accidentally kicked an old man walking down the street in london when i was 6 also and he fell down. i did not apologise. i hantuk my head on the the front windshield of dad's car because i was mad i didn't get my ice cream when i was 2 and the windshield cracked.

haha my friends pulak, "rashaad bila nak ada gf?", "rashaad, i wonder who's that lucky girl?", "rashaad, tak sabar seyh nak tgk gf kau", rashaad this, rashaad that. ye la ye la nanti i'll find one and place it in facebook and tag everyone. happy? my mum pulak, "rashaad you better dont have any gfs until you finished studies." i was like erk. erk. when the right time comes mum ... erk.

i think i'll change for the better this year. i don't want to dependent too much on my parents. i'm determined to finish my acca in one shot and i want to graduate by june 2010 insyaallah. with this qualification i want to work abroad and left alone this home. muahaha.

what about friends? yeah they are awesome cool. but one thing i like about my smokers friends, they are undeniably supportive and give good advice to me not to smoke. i was like "hey you think i should smoke? nampak cool sikit and senang buat kawan" and their replies are "jangan weyh buang duit je" i was like haha. ye lah satu hari satu kotak mana tak nye.

tonight i'm going to make a wish facing the stars, the moon and the deep blue sky, the land, the water, heaven and earth with a glimpse of shooting star upon the hill facing city of anggerik ... i wish that i ...

Talentime


I got my personality test from this site http://www.quizbox.com/personality/test82.aspx

Some is true, while the others ... *caughs* haha

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You prefer to get to know a person very well before deciding whether you will commit to the relationship.

The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

Your views on education
Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:
You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.

Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

Kiss me thru the phone

Feels young again, phewit! Finally I managed to retrieve class 3 Cemerlang SSAAS's pictures from my Nikon SLR. Been using that for more than 15 years. The quality of picture is okey. The only shop that I know that still provide 'cuci film' is at Section 3. Anyway, it was taken 5 years ago for our class page section in SALAM and 'Under the Tree' is the best one though.

So what happen to these friends? They are scattered all around the world. Here, India, Egypt, Australia, England, France and USA. I lost track but the possibility of reunion is remote. I mean for the time being. Well anyway we still keep in touch though. Majority of them have Facebook so add them yah and kiss them through the phone. :P
(Soulja Boy)

Okey, the confession part, rindu giler syal! Till we meet again.

"Be cool. Stay out from school."


Art class. Artistic seyh!


Kembar.


Anyway, Mahfuz is going to France on the 13th of April. Doa selamat will be held on the 11th.

Who's your Idol?


It's not just about politics, it's about freedom of speech. It's about the freedom of expressing your raw opinion. It's plain as you can see to explain your inner feelings without having any second thoughts.

Stop. Rewind.

Lately I'm too lazy to blog. Not that I don't like too but I really can't see what's the benefit of doing it. I feel like writing in malay where I can say whatever I want. Freedom of speech. I have this negative thought of people reading it will have a bad perception of what I'm writing, not really bad lah but where's the privacy anyway where strangers read your blog? And they start gossiping about you and tell their friends to read your blog and this friend of stranger's left the computer and out of the blue came the father who reads your blog and he just realised that this blogger is actually his friend's son at work.

And you know the blog updates where you can see your friend's latest posts? This is another problem. People start clicking it on it especially if the title is something cheesy catchy like "My dad has a new girlfriend" which is actually a GPS!

Oh talking about American Idol, this season is getting hotter with a lot of surprises as the phenomenon continues. With a new judge, Kara DioGuardi who wouldn't love her?! The judges have their say after every performance, but it's the viewing public that determines who will advance to the next round of competition and who will go home. As for me I'll vote for Kris Allen and Megan Joy. The worst contestant so far is Adam Lambert. He's utterly annoying and very corny especially for his last performance. He's better off sooner or later biatch!

The Battle Has Just Begun




Syukur Alhamdulillah, I barely able to let my breath down when I got another good news, I passed all my 3 papers of ACCA. Phew just relieved to tell you, after the bugging waiting of slowing internet connection in library, hella almost 300000 students onlined at the same time worldwide, same web page, what do you expect? Well, at least ACCA website beats you Malaysiakini this time around from the exploited Perak crisis lived through the coverage. From the eager sensation of waiting to the dissapointment of not being able to get through the web, we frowned, we nagging and we start refreshing the page, again and again in the hope of light that what we'll see is what we want.

For those who didn't get good results don't be dissapointed because that's not the end of it and for those who got good results, congratulations but don't be too comfortable as the saying goes, the good things won't last forever. I know some might be devastated with their results but cheer up! Buckle up, keep working hard and don't give up easily. Tomorrow is a brand new day. Failure or success we still move on. After all the battle has just begun.

A loser is one who wins at the beginning, loses in the end but never gets up. A winner is one who falls numerous times,but gets up each time he falls.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Dad just celebrated his 53rd birthday. Joyeux Anniversaire dad! So we decided to celebrate at Hotel Concorde just now. It was quick. Mummy booked a place there and for all we knew the next thing was to get ready. We bought a photo frame of a school bus where there are pictures of us now & then, when we were younger. It was really awesome weyh! Sorry Aisha, too bad Imaan didn't want to take any pictures at all. Mengade-ngade!

Anyway the present was supposed to be mum's as well because qada' ganti her birthday last december and I had to find all the pictures by myself, digged the old photo albums and passport photos. Phew!


The food was quite nice but mamak still the best do. haha.

budak gemokkkkkkk

Anyway there's a guest group performed from Indonesia. You can see it at behind. I forgot the name of it. They sang a birthday song for dad. I requested for Manbai Kau Ilhamku. *cries* ;p, Azraa requested for Kenangan Terindah from Samsons. Gler jiwang. Mummy was like "What???". hahaha. Well she knows Mamma Mia though :P

Performing birthday song .. yeyyo!

video



Nah, we didn't have any birthday cakes. Later we celebrate at home again.

awwwwwwwwww
