So Long dear buddiest

During this month of September, 3 of my greatest friends have resigned from the company. Based on locations, the guy who seat in-front of me, Asiq, the guy who seat on my right side, Lokman and last but not least, the person on my left side in my office, Ibn.

3 of them are getting better jobs and move away too seek better challenges. After 3 of them resign, it gives me a huge impact where in a team, whenever a team player injured or given the red card, it will cause burden for other players. But it was the right moves, and I am sure you will take the same action when you get the same offers.

On 3 of them, of course Asiq has given me a significant impact, where he's just not my buddies inside the office, but also in what ever activities that we do (except for dating...). We joined all the activities by the company such as sports and recreational activities, as well as outside activities, which consist of jamming, playing live band for the kenduri kahwin, bowling and wayanging.

Lokman is the Japan graduate student. He thought me Japanese, especially I have asked a lot of Kanji characters and also some translating. With his Subaru Impreza, he was well known among all the car freaks; even the pump attendant noticed him. We were planning on moving to a new house a few weeks before his resignation.

Ibn was the senior which in-charge the most difficult project in the company. He was dedicated to his jobs and his job is very manageable. During my initial stage in the company, he has taught a lot of things and a lot of advise. Being a Japanese graduate, he did help me when I facing difficulties in translating Japanese languages. We always ride his Avanza to the mosque for the Friday Prayer.

These people have given me a big impact as friends as well as team mates. However, life must go on. I have to work harder and contribute more. Thanks a lot guys...

Ramadhan is almost at it's end

Ramadhan is almost at it's end. Only a few days muslims people will continue fasting, and then there will be coming Syawal. The day of victory, eid mubarak; or the malays call it as Hari Raya Aidil Fitri.

For this year, I have spend most of my money for the buka puasa. I have attended almost all events which have been planned and whenever there is invitation. Most of them are buffet. To name a few - Man Chalet, Ahlan's Riverside Cafe, Kelab Golf Tanjung Emas Buffet, and just now Classic Hotel Buffet. The classic hotel is the most expensive I have been for this year, but the food did not disappoint me at all.

Last year, I have to go to Japan on the 4th Raya (initially it was 2nd of raya, but after some appeal, it was changed to 4th raya). Now the scenario is not much different. For this year I have to go to Japan on the 5th raya. But now the situation is totally different. My status already changed and I have to leave my wife for 2 weeks. (The old folks said "Sayang isteri tinggal-tinggalkan"). However, there should be some Omiyage or ole-ole I bring back from Japan.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all muslims Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. Happy Eid Mubarak. Maaf Zahir dan Batin. I beg for forgiveness for all the mistakes that I have done. Please do drop by if in case you are around Muar area.

Pegging the Ringgit

Last Saturday, there is a suggestion from the former prime minister on pegging the ringgit. But it was rejected by the new finance minister, and also the explanation was given by the Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Dr. Zeti Akhtar Aziz. I was not very sure about how's really this pegging will work out and what are the impact or the risk if we implement it. (Maybe the concept is it will save our ringgit from dropping to the ground but at the same time it is difficult for the value to increase).

However, after reading the former Prime Minister post in his blog ( entitled Pegging, I found out that once again Tun have come out with some brilliant idea, which is to demand trading to be made in Ringgit Malaysia, not the USD. Some parties should study on this idea and in my opinion, it is not impossible to be done.

My Deepest Condolence...

Budak 3 tahun maut jatuh balkoni tingkat 10

KAJANG: Tindakan seorang kanak-kanak lelaki berusia tiga tahun bermain sendirian di balkoni rumahnya di sebuah pangsapuri di Sungai Chua di sini, mengundang padah apabila dia maut terjatuh dari tingkat 10, malam tadi. 

Difahamkan, dalam kejadian jam 10.15 malam itu, mangsa yang dikenali sebagai Mohd Anas Hakimi Mohd Roshaidi dipercayai terjatuh selepas tubuhnya melepasi pagar balkoni berkenaan. 

Jurucakap polis berkata, ketika kejadian ahli keluarga mangsa berada dalam rumah dan tidak menyedari kanak-kanak terbabit keluar bersendirian melalui pintu belakang.

“Mangsa yang bermain berseorangan terjatuh selepas melepasi jeriji besi balkoni rumah terbabit.

Full story, please go to

Today I took a leave to attend a funeral. My 2nd cousin had passed away yesterday. He was 3 years old and too young and have not yet explored the world. But God the almighty has it say and nobody can stop him. There should be some hikmah on this tragic event. 

I would like to extend my deepest condolence to their parents and nearest family. May patient will always be with you. 

For those who still leave, we should remind ourselves our time will be next. I wish I could end this journey with as a mukmin. And reminder for those who have kids, please watch out your children closely. Ameen.

Independence day parade

I think I am not too late (even now can consider late already) to publish this post. Since now we're still in 'Bulan Kemerdekaan', so this topic is still relevant. :)

Last 31st August was Malaysia's National Day and as usual we will have the national day parade all over the country. For this year, our company (Pioneer Technology (M) Sdn Bhd) is no longer in Muar district. We have moved to another new district which has divided Muar into 2 parts which is Ledang. I don't really happy with this split. Muar has lost a lot when most of the asset was under the Ledang area. But who am I to voice out on this issue. 

I wish not to elaborate more on this matter, so, back to the story. As I said, we are in Ledang - so the marching venue took place in Tangkak. I reached there about 7.00 am in the morning (others reached there earlier; as early as 6.30 am). The event started at 8.00 am. I love to see all the contingent from various sector. I like the uniforms and dressings, the people, the discipline, the teamwork and the spirit.  Jalur Gemilang is every where, and of course, each contingent was been given one for the event. I can feel the patriotic mood inside of me.

I was the committee member for this year, so I didn't directly involve in the 'kawad' thing. My main job on that day was to shoot the best picture from my SLR lense. I have lack of practise lately, so please don't comment to much from the attached picture. 

As usual, Pioneer has won the best marching for the private sector, including the best dress. But for this year, we not just received the trophy, but cash money as well. I am sure the members would prefer cash money rather than trophy, cause they don't earn anything from the trophy. But the company would appreciate the trophy. What can a few hundreds ringgit mean to the multi-national company? So, in this case, both party were happy. :)

I went back to Kluang, to my parent's home soon after the Parade. It was a tiring day, and the best moment of the day was when I grab the pillow and lay down my body on the bed.

Congratulations to Pioneer participant for repeating the great achievement.

Perpaduan Teras Kejayaan

Back in 1957, it was the glorious moment when Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra declared the independence of the county by shouting "Merdeka!" for 7 times. 

Previously, Malaysia or Tanah Melayu was a foremost trading center of the region. The straits of Malacca was known as the most strategic path for traders which connect the east and west of the region. The land has been colonized a few times before it gains it's independence, starting from the Portuguese, Dutch, British and the Japanese. 

After a series of battle of the colonies, Malaya had retrieved his right to rule his own country. It was gain in such a diplomatic way and no other country have achieved independence in such a way before. Since then, the economics climate gradually change from-time-to-time until what we can see today. 

As the person who born after the independence, I can't really express the feeling of the independence. However, I am proud to be part of the country, a part who will contribute to the success of the Nation towards the Vision 2020. 

Happy 51th Birthday Malaysia.
