Ketupat direbus dipagi hari

Buat santapan di Aidilfitri

10 jari ku susun rapi

Maaf dipinta seikhlas hati

Selamat Hari Raya untuk semua muslimin dan muslimat di seluruh dunia! Maaf zahir dan batin untuk semua salah dan silap, dalam sedar ataupun tidak.

Tapikan.. is it just me atau raya sekarang ni dah tak semeriah dulu? Rasa macam ada benda yang missing. Mungkin sebab dah besar kot dan sepupu-sepupu ramai dah ada keluarga sendiri, dah bekerja. Dah tak ada minat nak main bunga api atau mercun pun. Adoi, miss those days.

Apa-apa pun, ada satu benda I still look forward to. Sampul duit raya PETRONAS! Bukan nak bias ke apa tapi sampul duit raya dia dari dulu memang lain dari yang lain. Cantik dia lain macam sikit. Silap hari bulan, mahal sampul dari isi! haha… GST dik, GST.

*dulu iklan raya PETRONAS pun best2, ada yang lawak, ada yang syahdu. Tapi la ni.. lepas orang yang selalu wat iklan2 tu meninggal, dah kurang kick dah. Jadi hangpa save-lah iklan2 lama tu, buat tunjuk kat anak cucu. Evergreen tau!

Makanya, selamat hari raya, selamat penuhkan perut dengan seribu satu jenis kuih raya, selamat berpuasa enam raya, selamat kutip duit raya dan berhati-hati di jalan raya! Semoga berjumpa lagi di Ramadhan yang akan datang, InsyaAllah…

Japan Escapade – Tokyo days (sequel)

Resuming previous post, we are still exploring Tokyo. But this time around, a bit farther from perhaps the world’s largest megalopolis. On our 3rd day, we head east for a fresher breeze (eh, it rhymes!)

Day 3 – Mt. Fuji, Lake Kawaguchiko and Shinjuku

  • Back when I agreed to travel to Japan, only two place I had in mind; Tokyo and Mount Fuji. Both very contrasting in nature. Tokyo, to experience the ever hectic life of the Japanese people while Fuji, for anything but. So glad that I had the opportunity to experience both during my maiden visit.

26th on the 26th!

2ne6 A week into my 26th-hood, nothing much has changed. Not that it should, just that looking back at the year before, felt that I haven’t achieved much. Felt that my life has been nothing but stagnant. Glimpse into the yesteryear then brought me to question, what have I achieved in life, really? I know perhaps it’s a little too early for the topic at this age but I can’t seem to push it away. Achievement to me is many things. From being able to do something you’re passionate about, being able to put smile on people’s faces, and more importantly being able to feel content with self. I want to make change, impact other people’s life (in good ways, lah,,) and be someone that my family can be proud of. Somehow in many, felt that I fell short. So here’s all the things that I want to achieve (also some words of advice) for future self to look at at times, to reflect. Continue reading 26th on the 26th!

Japan Escapade – Tokyo days

Japan Ichiban!

I can’t really recall when did I first heard about Japan. Was it from the first car that my dad bought years ago (it was a grey Toyota Corolla) or was it from Doraemon? Gotta be one of them (pretty sure it’s the latter considering I have little to no interest at all when it comes to car :p). Either way, 20 years later I found myself exploring the heart of this sugoi country. Had the chance to explore two of its biggest cities – Tokyo and Osaka – and honestly, you should too!

This time around, the travel pack is quite unique as none of us had actually  travelled together before. There were six of us – three UM seniors (Adi, Abul and Shah), one officemate (Afnan) and Adi’s former colleague (Achid). I first thought it’s gonna be a challenge for some but hey, turned out we bond just fine. Anyway, as many had requested, here’s our itinerary for the visit.

Itinerary jepun

Now isn’t that cute or what? Everything is so small here.

In total, we were in Japan for 10 days (including the arrival and departure day) and the stay is divided into 2 main parts – Tokyo and Osaka, 5 days each. We arrived at Narita Airport, Tokyo on April 24th and depart for Malaysia from Kansai Airport, Osaka on May 3rd. And yes, we took the slightly more pricey MAS over AA just to experience the luxury (full service for a difference of only RM100 at time we purchase our tickets, it’s a bargain!).

To the Land of Kangaroos and Koalas (part 1)

Salam/ peace be upon you,

1361931536_AAXlogo_165x165It all started last year. November, to be exact. AirAsia had this crazy sale and a close buddy of mine, Fareez happened to came across it. Well, not that he just “happened” to “came across it”. He practically spend most of his free time searching for cheap flight tickets like it’s his pastime! Anyway, we managed to bought tickets to Gold Coast for just RM757. Definitely a bargain! Then again, we need to curb our excitement fast since the travel date’s almost a year from the day we bought the tickets. Urgh… the wait!

Cinta?

Salam/ Peace be upon you,

Cinta?

Cinta itu both indah dan menyeksakan. Serius. You don’t have to be in a relationship pun to know that. Yes, that extra attention and care from a certain someone tu buat cinta nampak indah belaka. Well, it is. Then again, equal percentage of being afraid of losing that very person, or betrayed of trust given buat cinta jadi sangat menyeksakan, kadang, sampai menggilakan. And like some things in life, cinta itu terlalu kompleks. Mungkin antara yang terkompleks sekali.

To say or not to say – The Media

Salam/ Peace be upon you,

“For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels”

– Frank Sinatra

This might get me into hot water but whatever. I speak my mind. Recent political “development” in this country has been very chaotic. It’s rather difficult to talk or discuss about politics honestly without risking losing friends and even sometimes family, when both are on opposing sides. The very reason why some decided to disregard politics altogether.
