Listerine

Salam,

Just got back from Uni just now, I tell you 4 hours of Contingencies is no good for ur brain bro. Luckily we had a break in between for some lunch (went to Dixy’s hahaha) kalo x mmg aq muntah nombor ar kat lecture tadi huhu.

Anyways, I went to the 99p shop near my place because we were running low on supply of goods at home. So me being the responsible housemate that I am, I went there to get some stuff and one of them being Listerine. Haha ni nak cite skit, aq bought listerine ni sbb nk jage oral hygiene skit, don’t want those bacteria to make holes in my mouth lah snang cite. I find it very important that we take serious care of our oral hygiene because that way it’ll be easier for us to smile and for the others to accept our smile, kan senyum tu satu sedekah.

But lets think beyond the norm, its not enough to just take care of our outer condition ie our oral hygiene but its also important to take care of our inner hygiene. When we talk we (im not saying all, but most probably a lot) usually use a lot of vocabulary that are not nice to listen to. Kalau back home tu for example perkataan “bodoh”, “syal” dll byk digunakan sebagai penyedap pada akhir sentence. Here its far worse with locals using the Fish word if u know what im saying. I guess to a certain extent, we can’t blame it on the individual because maybe its due to the environment, the society at large or even peer pressure, not to mention negative influence from the media. But you can’t put aside the fact that words like that aren’t easy on the ears.

On the other hand, it amazes me how easily the brothers from my university can utter such nice words like, subhanallah, alhamdulillah etc and include them in their sentences. I know it sounds a bit awkward to us but u can’t deny its pleasing to the ears and im pretty sure it soothes the heart. Don’t take my word for it, instead lets try it out shall we? Try inserting some words that praise Allah in our conversations and lessen on the “penyedap kata” as much as we can. Start with small steps and try to make a difference ok keke.

use listerine before its too late hahaha

Walking

Salamualaikum
Once again, its been a while since i’ve blogged and if u’ve read (or are still reading) this lame excuse for blog then u might realise that I’ve been busy with uni work to sit down and write something decent. Fact of the matter is, thats not a good enough excuse for anything; if u can make time now, then u won’t be able to do so anytime soon in the future when life gets real busy. Food for thought i suppose huh….

Anyways, this time my writing to u comes in a different method so to say. No im not writing on a new macbook nor an ipad (i wish though haha tsk2..), im actually writing from Finsbury Park!! Haha hard to believe kan? No not really tht hard when u have an iphone an a wordpress app on it 😛

Well i was just bored sitting at home so i decided to take a little stroll around the housing area, sooner or later i found myself on this bench and i got the sudden urge to write something.

You know its amazing how some fresh air can be so revitalizing for u. Here i am sitting here (alone unfortunately) gazing on the wonders that is the creation of All Mighty Allah. It amazing how when u think about it, that everything fits just ncely from the breeze that blows softly inducing trees to dance and how the animals an people can walkabout peacefully not to mention u can see the warmth and love of families gathered at the park for their evening stroll. It makes you think of how very small u are and eventhough small we still fit and mean something in the whole complex and yet beautiful creation that have been gifted to us :’)

Im just jabbering about really but if there was something that i wanted to say to u ( if anyone’s reading this keke ) is that be thankful for what u have may it be family, friends, good health etc and take some time to gaze upon the world around u coz u’ll be amazed at what u find. Then again wht do i know right haha. Food for thought 😉

PS : did u see the supermoon, reminds me of Bruno Mar’s “Talking to the moon” song, so jiwang jang bluekkkk hahaha. Salam

Eid ’10

Salam warah,

I know its kinda late but a steady and fast internet connection is hard to get when ur at the kampong, so………

SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI

MAAF ZAHIR & BATIN

Yup that time of the year again people, after a month of fasting in the blessed month of Ramadhan its now time to celebrate Eid. Of course its the time for forgiving and visiting family & friends but let us not forget to try and follow up the Iman momentum that we built up during the month of ramadhan hehe

Since its the time for forgiving, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone; I know i’ve done lots of bad things in the past,

i’ve hurt people’s feelings, disappointed lots of friends,

caused unnecessary problems for others,

slowed down people,

was ungrateful,

cynical,

and the list goes on….

I’m very sorry especially to my friends because i often (without fail) disappoint them. For being the idiot that i am and for not cherishing the friendship that we have as much as i should i sincerely apologize. For being to caught up with what i was doing and not spending time with people around me who care about me, i am terribly sorry and ashamed. I hope you find it in you heart to forgive me and still be friends…… hmm agak over kut kan? tapi tu lah, the reality is i usually let people down (including myself) and i apologize for that.

just a lil bit of love with abg Baby!!

Well enough of that mellow stuff, I’m really happy because i got to spend time with my relatives back at kampong. Its amazing how just meeting someone and just having a chat with them after a long time can be so refreshing and fun! So hope all you guys have a splendid raye with ur family and friends wherever you are in the world :). Till next time yeah, owh telupe lak sok nk balik London :'(……

adik

Adik: Abang lets go and solat at the mosque today
Abang: Oh really, why?
Adik: I just want to, can kan?
Abang: Okay sure…..
Subhanallah, has my little brother changed for the better? or is it the bigger brother who has remain stagnant and hasn’t grown. Muhasabah mode :  [ON]

flip flop

Salam warah,

Hows ramadhan people? Haha as they say time flies when you’re having fun, well i guess the same thing applies when you’re fasting in the blessed month of ramadhan.  Perhaps even more so during ramadhan, so cherish the few time left we have before we part ways again with this blessed month because you never know this maybe our last…..

Hey whats with the sappy sad atmosphere, lets hype up a bit. Actually today something funny happened to, albeit it was a bit embarassing but i think that this is a really serious situation that needs the immediate attention of everybody (cewah ayat nak bez je jang ni). So its like this, I was travelling back home via the country’s ever slow and crowded train service (yeah u know what im talking about, the blue and yellow one..) when this event happened.

Well first and foremost i have to say, we Malaysians should be more courteous to each other. Where’s the ” please “, smiles and so called budi bahasa that we’re oh so famed for having? Because seriously the train was jam packed to the brim and it was uncomfortable for everybody especially to the ones who had to stand up. You would think that the law enforcers/ responsible people in charge of handling the situation inside the train to be a kind fellow who speaks in an adequate way towards the society right? I mean they just like scolded the people to move in forward, “masuklah dalam lagi, tunggu ape lagi tu” we amongst the favourite phrases used. Okay, call me over reacting but im sure that there was a better more friendly way to go about the situation. When i say friendly that doesn’t necessarily means without be strict and serious about the matter in hand. Haish, maybe its nothing much but i was thinking that what the other people would have thought of it especially the foreigners.

Anyways, the number of people where decreasing as the train reached the transit destination. So as the doors where slid open, people were rushing out. At first glance i was quite impressed because the people outside were queeing and waiting for us to get out of the train. Being me i let other people out first and also maybe the fact that i don’t like being pushed around and being surrounded in the “sardine tin” situation, i let the others out first. That was the crictical mistake! As people we going out, the people outside were starting to flood in. So like it or not i had to brace through the storm of eager men and women trying to rush for a seat. In all the pushing, squeezing and shoving, i suddenly felt something missing. As if a part of me was taken away, i felt incomplete (okay over kut jang!!), tengok2 aik mane selipar aku??? In the confusion, my slippers slipped from my feet and was carried away in the stampede of the rushing people. So there i was, like an idiot with only one slipper another feet barefooted. Thinking back, that was a really hilarious situation i mean just picture it it looks so pathetic with everyone busy walking around there i was one feet without the sandle. I could only smile, but inside it was more of like being sad. Not so that i had to embarassingly walk around like that with some people staring, but at the fact that how the society hasn’t changed at all. Where’s the patience and virtues that we’re supposed to be famous for? Has it all gone and became history, or is it just words that mean nothing said as a campaign that dies out into space.

okay i couldn't find a suitable picture, my bad....

After that, i had to go out and buy a new pair of flip flops at the store near the station. Okay i know it sounds that I’m over reacting but i really felt as if i was walking around naked hahaha. Even the salesman at the store was shocked, ” Eh saye ingatkan bang x pakai selipar that hehe” aduh kemaluan2….. Seriously this was a really odd and yet memorable experience for me. It goes to show that we still as a society have a long way to go, and that we need to work harder for the sake of the next generation. People just remember, be more patient and courteous especially during the month of ramadhan. As they say, “sabar itu sebahagian daripada Iman” so why don’t we try being a bit more tolerant and patient with one another. Im sure it’ll do wonders. I personally remind myself before speaking to all of you guys and i personally blame myself for being inadequate and for not being able to react to the situation or anticipate that the situation could have been that bad. Just a few things that we should ponder, jzkk 🙂

selipar baru!!

City University New Students 2010!!

Salam warah,

haha hows everybody doing lately? Its ramadhan for the the muslims so that means FASTING, yeay!!! That time of year again for us to build our Iman and upgrade ourselves to become better muslims hehe. Anyways just wanted to put a small shout out to some special people 🙂

CONGRATS TO THE NEW STUDENTS OF CITY UNIVERSITY LONDON (you know who u guys are hahaha)

Seriously looking forward to go back to London and start the new season/semester. Arghh im considered a 2nd year student already, yeah i feel old and don’t even get me started on the pressures of studying hahaha haih. All that aside, tahniah again to the new 1st years may it be the actuarial science students or economics and finance students. By the way if you’re going to City University or going to study in London in general and you need a helping hand like for example things to bring, what to do when u arrive, etc please don’t hesitate to contact me (if there are still people reading this mediocre blog anyways, haihs). Well i guess thats it for this time, see u guys round and happy Ramadhan 😀

PS: u can contact me by commenting on this post or adding me in facebook but please private message me first or else i won’t be bothered to reply huhu.

Hmm

Salamualaikum,
Today we just finished our final paper for the week, ECONZ!! Alhamdulillah did it, hopefully things will turn out ok. After that we went to play footie, and i hve to say it was quite refreshing being able to play after a long time. So granted i played my socks off but now im starting to regret it haha this body’s not what it used to be 

Anyways after the game as usual we hung around for awhile and something interesting caught my attention. I don’t think i’ll th whole situation, just the jist of the whole conversation;

Friend A: Ko buat penih dow?

Friend B: Lek ar kat UK r bile buat cmni kt Msia mane buleh hahahaha

Then it struck me, thats rather funny what he said as though to imply that because now were in Uk we can do whatwas not seen as the “norm” back home. Come to think about it whats so different? The weather? People? Time difference? Really does this allows us to do such things? Actually what he did wasn’t really that big of a deal but the mentality is just surprising.

Maybe its like, okay here there’s nobody to watch over me so i can do whatever i want. What happens between this four walls stays here. Or what other people don’t know won’t hurt em right?? Thats how we would normally think, me including. But we tend to forget that the Creator, who is the Lord of the heaven and the earth is constantly watching us and that we have angels over our shoulders writing down our every move. We tend to forget that when we do sins in dark places, alone where nobody can see us we feel safe. But know that verily Allah is always watching us. Come the day of judgement who will stand to prosecute us? No one else but our own body;

Eyes: Did u know what he made us see?

Legs: Did u know where he made go?

Hands: Did u know what he made us do?

On that day, when we are witnessed all the things we tried to hide, when regret and repentence is all to late what will be left for ua to do. When the hellfire and paradise is shown “live” in front of us, and our book of deeds are given to us shall we receive it with our right hand, or our left? Subhanallah i hope to receive it with my right and be permitted into the gardens of paradise and to be amongst the pious. This is just a self reflection, no more than that 🙂

Greeting from Briset St

Salamualaikum,

Hahah feels so weird to actually sit down and start writing this blog again. It’s been almost two months here in London and I think this is the first time Im writing in my blog. Well you can say that its been very hectic here in London no thanks to CITY UNIVERSITY LONDON giving its actuarial science students loads of work (online quizlah, class test, homework, coursework la and never ending classes!!!!). If this is how my first year is going to be, I can’t imagine how hectic 2nd year will be. Well kalo pikir skrang pon xgne buat pening kepala je bek rilek2 dulu, take things one step at a time 🙂

As you may or may not know, Im living in the uni’s halls of residence for my first year and I have to say it really SUCKS ASS! To any juniors yang nak ke City Uni and planning nak duk halls, let me give u a piece of advice; JGN DOK HALLS especially Liberty Court!! Macam ayam dow kat sini dah ar mahal and the rooms are small, not to mention the facilities are zero. Baik korang g cari rumah ar duk kat UK nanti lagi heaven, dah ar murah ramai member lak tu and bole download!!! Dah ar download limit kat sini about 400 MB je se-24 jam ( like What the Shit?? ), for a Mat Download like myself I find this so annoying and irritating! nak download lagu pon tersekat haih sabo je la Jang, ni la cubaan dan dugaan duk luar negara. Tu ar sape suro blaja kat London bek duk rumah je blaja kat UiTM kang sonang hahaha. Takpe2 sume bende ade hikmahnye kite wait and see je……

Learning Actuarial Science is really no joke, its difficult and requires you to be very diligent and hardworking. Now im getting second thoughts on my decision to follow Abang Shan, but since Im already here I might as well finish what I started. Owh staying in London is nice except the weather which is nowadays always raining and cold. Looks like winter dah semakin hampir, harap2 ade snow la taun ni bole nak berjakun main snowball or buat snowman hehehe. I miss my family and friends back home very,very,very much like they say distance makes the heart grow fonder. Speaking about the heart, nowadays i feel quite lonely especially when im sitting in my room alone like this. Sorang2 dalam bilik mane x rase lonely ye tak tapi nak buat camne, ni la reality duk kat hall so once again aq nasihatkan junior2 yg akan ke luar negara kalo bole korang g cari rumah dengan member2 korang and put halls as your last resort. Okay la looks like thats it for today hopefully the semangat utk tulis blog akan trus mekar dalam hati yg sunyi ini heheheh. So till next time Salam sayang dari Jang 🙂

Last time….

Salamualaykum,

Sunyi je malam ni,

semacam tau je perasaan ati aq haih…

Dah la tu Jang, tak bek mengeluh2 ni org ckp cepat tua. Unfortunately what to do, I’m really feeling torn in two. Im excited to be going to London to study but yet I’m saddened by the fact that I have to travel all the way across the sea to do so. Mane x sedeyhnye, I have to leave many things that I cherish behind most notably my family and friends.

This past week has been one of the most memorable days of my life. I went back to Muar after ntah how many years for raya, got to meet up with my old friends from SJ and hung out, went shopping alone for the first time haha, aduh sius bahaya gi shopping sorang2 ni, u never know how much money’s slipping out ur wallet huhu. This week theme die ialah “Last”, this time everything that I done seemed to be the last time that I was going to do it. Last kopek ar bak kate dak2 asrama,

LAST FUTSAL

I was touched that the guys gi tempah court kat Sports Planet utk main futsal buat kali terakhir di SJ, yeah I know sounds like no big deal tapi for me yang x slalu gi main bola (sejak balik dari KMB) it was really a big deal. Best la main ngan member2 lame, Ding, Hairi, Syafiq, Anip, Acap and Adek. Walaupun badan agak sengal2 sebab ditolak2 oleh carlos “emo” tevez, tapi I was very happy that we played together. Penat ar main, macam bese I was “pancit” pretty quickly, lack of match fitness lah brader. We played at 1am and finished around 2.15 am. Pas abis je main, lampu kat tempat tu sume start tutup, and since we were the last group there only our light was on. Sayu je suasana mase tu, semacam tau je taukey tu yg aq xlame lagi kat situ. Last time main futsal ngan dak2 subang.

LAST VISIT WAN CIK

Because we didn’t spend the first of Eid in Rawang, we decided to go visit Wan Cik that day to see how she was doing. As usual Wan Cik was on her wheel chair watching TV but I was surprised to see Abang Baby there as well. It’s been a long time since I met him and boy does he look chubbier than before;

Aiman : B, sal gemuk semacam je ni? X pose ke hahaha

Abang Baby : Hati senang mah…. 🙂

Just as we we’re about to leave as I was “salam” ing Wan Cik, she said;

Wan Cik : Man, blaja kat London elok2. Ingat kat Wan Cik ye, nanti Aiman balik Wan Cik dah tak de…

Words that brought tears to my eyes. She’s practically a new person she has a new healthy heart, new leg, clear eyes. I’m sure that she’ll be able to live a longer live, but only Allah knows for certain. I hope that Wan Cik is always healthy and that when I come back, she’ll be at Rawang waiting for me with that cheerful smile.

Last Lepak Kenchana (LLK)

Haha walaupun baru dua kali lepak kat sini tapi the second trip was the last one for me. Last makan nasi lemak ayam special kat kenchana sambil tengok Man Utd kalahkan Stoke kat big screen, thank you Man Utd for leaving me with a nice farewell present huhu. Ni la merupakan last time aq lepak ngan Ding atau lebih dikenali dgn name Haziq Nordin and x juge dilupekan Syafiq Stamos. Ding has been my friend since primary school. We went to the same tuisyen together, played football together and always hung out together whenever we have free time. We went to different MRSM but kept in contact through the years. Memang dah lame aq kenal Ding, dan Ding is one of my close friends. Sedeyh aq tgk die drive away after hantar aq balik rumah, InsyaAllah I will still keep in touch with Ding and all my other friends even if im far away. Distance makes the heart grow fonder is something that I’ve always believed in.

Eventhough banyak bende last dah berlaku this week, many other new things will hopefully come in the weeks ahead. Once a door closes another door opens, and i looking forward to new opportunities and experiences in a new place. I’ll treasure the memories as it’ll keep me warm in the cold streets of London.

That time of year again :D

Salamualaykum,

First and foremost, i’d like to wish all muslims a very….

HAPPY EID MUBARAK

Yeah, Ramadhan has already left meaning that its raya time huhu. Congratulations to those who’ve completed their fast perfectly during Ramadhan you deserve a pat on the back, for those yg x pose penuh tu ha pandai2 korang ganti nanti eh huahuahua. Tommorrow, the big day and im going to go to Muar to celebrate raya with my father’s family. Truthfully, this is the first time we’re going to Johor for raya so im feeling pretty much a mix of emotions haha. Well hopefully things go well and we’ll drop by to see Wan Cik in Rawang when things are over in Muar.


Haih, i dunno bout you guys but raya for me has lost its grandeur and excitement as I grew up. I suppose thats how it is right, we grow older, have other responsibilities and priorities in our lives. U can’t expect things to stay the same forever right? The only constant thing in this world is change, may it be for better or for worse. Nonetheless I’m still greatful to be spending raya with my family here in Malaysia. Who knows this could probably be the last time I spend raya with my family for some time. Having said that, you’ve gotta live the moment, treasure the time you have and create fond memories for the future. For my friends yang raya kat overseas tu, sabar eh jgn sedeyh. Okayh what raya kat negara orang, new experience mah haha!!!

Now that Syawal is here I can’t but feel regretful because Ramadhan has gone and i’ve probably didn’t spend it the best way that i could’ve. Its true what they say, you don’t know what you’ve got till its gone but hopefully we’ll live long enough to welcome Ramadhan again next year and hopefully it’ll be much better for us as time passes by.

Well, famous last words before i leave you all to syokaya raya;

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri

Maaf Zahir dan Batin

0-0, ok?

Buckle up, drive safely and eat moderately 😛
