All too well.

All too well.

Approaching the end of 2016.

Many things had happened. 2016 had been extraordinary for me comparing what i have now and in the past. was like comparing 2 completely different people.

but there’s one weakness that seemed to stick with me. oh i know the weakness. the weakness that i have eversince high school. the weakness which became a point where other people would say

aahhh so youre still the old one.

pfft….

well, now i know what to do. i know all too well.

but still, the progress that i made this year to build a new character of me is something that i can be happy of. level 1 yesterday level 93 today. well that’s how i imagine my speedy progress of character building. cheh.

well, the journey continues. Final Year….i don’t think my “prime time” has ended just yet…

 

Let’s do this

 

Which type of “S” should your child be into?

Which type of “S” should your child be into?

Sekolah Asrama or Sekolah Harian?

Tu memang soalan yang semua ibu bapa fikir kan, ada yang fikir dia nak hantar anak2 dia pergi asrama sebab kalau hantar anak gi sana anak boleh jadi pandai, ada jugak fikir kalau hantar anak pergi asrama beban aku senang sikit, jimat minyak nak kena hantar hari2 etc

Since ni memang satu topik yang subjektif aku tak boleh sembang panjang sangat, kena playsafe.

Salam,

Days ago people had been sharing the picture of Malaysia’s Father of Modernisation, Tun Dr Mahathir alongside what had he done to our country. It was a long list and I have to say that in 22 years of ruling Malaysia, he had shown the obvious results: Lanskap Malaysia yang Maju

Well, here’s an interesting part for us to ponder upon dear Malaysians. When he was the PM people would constantly say that he is corrupt and gila kuasa kind of guy. Numerous corruption accusations were mentioned by the people.

But, why, why now? why are we only starting to list down his past achievements now when in fact most didn’t agree with him when the KLCC, Putrajaya and Langkawi were proposed at all let alone the LRTs and Monorail tht time. I mean people are trying to say Najib isn’t doing his job as well as Mahathir but the thing is Mahathir did that in 22 years whilst Najib had just entered his 7th year in the office.

Plus the people who are saying that Mahathir is the best  are those of the new generation, those who only learn to know the term Perdana Menteri in 2003 when Mahathir stepped down. They don’t know the struggle of the country when Mahathir was working so hard.

What if I tell you: when Mahathir was building Putrajaya, the previous generations are having the same thing as we are now namely the economic situation, national debt, corruption scandals etc.

What if I tell you: Mahathir built things such as public transport network and transnational highways but Najib is doing the same now.

Public transport

  • Extension of LRTs Kelana Jaya Line and Sri Petaling Line
  • Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), allow me to say, Singapore doesn’t have this kind of transport.
  • Soon the LRT3 and MRT.

Transnational Highways

  • Lebuhraya Pantai Timur (LPT) and soon LPT2
  • Lebuhraya Pantai Barat (In construction)

What if I tell you: Bandar Malaysia is the next Putrajaya, Bukit Jalil Sports Complex will evolved into Bukit Jalil Sports City and there will be another significant tower in the future that will leave KLCC on the ground? What if I told you after a few years Malaysia’s infrastructure evolves significantly?

bandar-malaysia-facts-010116

What if I tell you: When najib dies and god knows who’s the next PM takes over and people aren’t happy with his/ possibly her job then they list down Najib’s Achievements?

What I am trying to say is not Najib is better than Mahathir or Najib will be better than Mahathir let alone what Mahathir had done wasn’t enough.

What I am trying to say here is that our people loves to point out the achievement after the achiever’s time has gone and then go to an easy conclusion like

Najib isn’t as good as Mahathir hence vote for the Opposition

It’s all stucked in a time loop. i heard people would say Mahathir punya corrupt pun ada lah jugak KLCC, now the scariest fact: Najib’s projects are already showing progress.

Will people say the same next? Corruption, Scandals, tapi ada lah jugak MRT siap, LPT settle.

In the end it’s just the matter of time that people’s eyes would be closed towards how corrupt would a person be. ini mcm pukul budak 8 tahun esok bg dia iPad. wht would the kid say?

Kalau nak ukur achievement, semua boleh achieve tak kira lah siapa kau, Mahathir atau Najib, kemampuan itu tetap ada, Negara tetap ada sesuatu utk rakyat. tapi kita sebagai rakyat kena sedar, statement

Corruption, Scandals, tapi ada lah jugak MRT siap, LPT settle.

or

Mahathir punya corrupt pun ada lah jugak KLCC

cuma lah satu alasan untuk menghalalkan skandal2 dan ketidak tulusan manusia dengan hanya menutup mata dengan projects.

Kita sebagai rakyat malaysia kena pandai tarik rambut dalam tepung, kena bijak, kena hati2, rambut dapat, tepung x sepah. infrastruktur ada, kerajaan pun bersih. Insyallah.

In conclusion hujah yng panjang2 list tu bukan x betul tapi x padu, smash x tajam lah katakan. kalau nak ckp psl list, tk lama lagi, najib will have his own list. haha tggu je.

DISCLAIMER: This post does not reflect that Najib reign is flawless (eg: scandal, staggering amount of debt, high cost of living, insignificant increment in wages) but this post is meant to open our eyes about the fact that we cannot directly compare Mahathir’s  and Najib’s premiership. Because the people’s wants and needs had change and we live in 2 different time. 

Contoh kalau nak compare dr segi bangunan Najib pun ada. maka kalau nak compare sekalipun bukan dengan cara compare bangunan secara terus.

The truth. bitter.

The truth. bitter.

ada shaja yang menyebabkan aku terasa sedikit lega dan agak happy duk uni luar negara berbanding locally.

Maaf, aku mungkin bermulut bisa tapi ini hakikatnya.

  1. duduk study kat malaysia ni maklumlah, seniority x beragak, tgk saja musim orientasi. mcm2 denda kne ada. lagu sorak kanak2. malah siap yang kena pukul pun ada. Tak faham juga. kalau x buat pada budak junior kata nya budak junior manja. i mean is it that simple tu define manja?
  2. kat sana musim orientasi xde pun nak bersorak2, ber cheer2, tapi best je ada mcm gerai2 fundraising, gerai pendaftaran kelab, taklimat, tour uni, sama je but minus part seniority tu.
  3. Mentality boring. kat sini contoh nya lah budak uni menang something. mengharum kan nama uni. “malangnya” dia perempuan. dan dia tak bertudung. faham2 lah apa yang akan jadi nanti.
  4. kita x bosan nak mencari kelemahan orang supaya kita tak terasa ditinggal kan. oh aku x menang apa2, mcm dia tapi aku tutup aurat so in the end aku lebih baik. or kita semua sama. tu je lah yang kita fikirkan. kat sana, regardless what you wear diorng professional.
  5. tu belum lagi dengan pergaulan. kita ada lah masa dimana kita akan ‘berpasangan’ maklumlah, sedangkan ibu bapa kita pun ada yang bercintun di uni. tapi ramai pasangan yang di pandang ibarat sudah berdosa confim neraka.
  6. ada yang hanya lah berjalan dengan opposite sex, takde hubungan apa pun, kawan/rakan sekelas, tapi dah kena judge macam2. disuruh nya jumpa bapa lah suruhnya kahwin.
  7. kahwin? omg. cringeee.

bila aku balik malaysia aku yakin dan aku tahu. betapa budak2 yang grad harus kita hormati, usaha murni, institusi pendidikan yang baik malah keikhlasan menuntut ilmu yang dia ada.

tapi aku yakin. di balik wajah itu, ada wajah yang dia terpaksa lalui dengan perkara2 di atas. kesian.

2016, tapi junior kena cari 10 tandatangan senior.

2016 uni menang taekwondo, malangnya x pakai tudung.

2016, kena nyanyi “beat the rest be the besstt oh yeah oh yeah”

uni dah bagus, fasilitas dah mantap, lecturer dah hebat. mentaliti pelajar pun kena lah setaraf.

aku mungkin tersilap, kang ada pula yang kata

kau apa tau, duduk sini pun tak, menda dah xda lah weh!

kalau benda dah takde alhamdulillah lah. good for everyone

OFFENSIVE

OFFENSIVE

2016, millenniums after the dark ages of oppression towards expressions. People nowadays are living in the life of dreams where the best thing is that you can express what ever you feel no matter who you are, men women, doesn’t really matter.

All those freedom and human rights with constitution have your back with the breath of democracy. Yeah kid, go talk, go move, go do whatever you want. freedom. yeah, real crazy innit?

you see, with the freedom of speech makes you roaming thru the world, guess what, here comes another freedom. the freedom of movement of information. the internet facilitates this kind of freedom, and it also creates another platform of expression.

you see, with the freedom of movement of information, a lot of people can see what’s your expression right? well that’s cool, people can hear other people’s preach. all the good things can be shared into millions of people. But i guess every sunshine must have the cloudy days as well.

the risk of the internet

it’s easy you know, to express what you feel, what’s your take, your opinion and stuffs. You’re going meet the people agree with you, say, you post something on Facebook. some people comment on the post, they’re agreeing with you, some people don’t, but some people can also be offended.

This is what the risk is all about, the easier, the faster your expression went around, i believe it is also easier to have the possibility to offend other people.

 

I suggest that’s where ethics come in, yes we are free to express, but we have to be careful about it, we should try our best to also not offend anybody.

does that mean people are now more sensitive?

might be true, but that’s not the case, the case here is that we shouldn’t be ignorant whether or not people are sensitive, but hey we must be careful and don’t over-express ourselves.

don’t let the freedom of speech trap you becoming an unethical person,

express with care.

remember, it’s easy to offend people nowadays.

ps: sometimes instead of expressing, i tend to choose being silent, sometimes listening/observing has its own upside as well you know. don’t get me wrong, im up for freedom of expression but there are times tht stay quiet can be more beneficial.
cheers.

Into a different chapter: I go

Into a different chapter: I go

Hi everyone, I hope you well, it’s been a while since the last time i updated this blog. I honestly miss writing here whilst telling the world what I’ve been through and what have i learnt along the way.

IMG_7627
Organizing an annual sporting event here in London. It was a tremendous experience

 

This time I want to write one short post about my life update. LOADS had happened

-London International Model UN Conference

-Organised a sport event for Malaysian Students across London/UK

-Got elected as Vice President of Model UN in my uni

-A trip to Wales

I don’t want to tell each of everything briefly or else this post would be TL;DR but each experience/ event/ occurrence that i’ve been through has their own lessons that i can bring along. Not to forget, each with a message saying that I am now one step forward into a new chapter in my life. A chapter so different which can make me realise that all the things i thought i can do, are actually very difficult. A good example would be “Organising a Sports event”. It seems doable based on my capabilities but once i experience it, it was very rough and tough. Being a project manager was one hell of a job that i experienced in my second year.

IMG_7755

I have to say i did a lot to sacrifice during my time to manage the sports event. I couldn’t go backpacking across Europe (well i did go to Cardiff visiting my friends but thats about it), I don’t have the free time to enjoy during my spring break and this sacrifice was like a message to me,

It’s different now.

I remember  that one day i said to myself, when i was ever so busy preparing for the sporting event.

On this day last year, I was in NYC.

IMG_0042

Hence, it was a message that now, I have other things to do, i need to put away some fun and at the same time face my responsibility.

I’m not saying that budak2 lain backpacking, jalan2 time spring semua xde tanggungjawab tak function jgn jd mcm diorng etc

But what i’m saying is that

diorng punya gaya hidup, diorng punya dimensi masa, nampak gayanya aku x boleh ada yang sama,

malah apa yang aku hadapi sepertinya berbeza dan aku harus menerima hakikat.

Aku dan apa yang berlaku pada ku, dan mereka dgn apa yang berlaku pada mereka.

satu yang ku pelajari, jalan ku sudah punya simpang baharu, yang aku sendiri pilih. 

It’s different, but I chose this path. So that one experience is gained after the other. Maybe i might have no chance to travel more, but i might have the chance to experience something else which i can put it in my mind and heart.

Life has so many ways to be learnt; not just via travelling

Well i guess that’s it for now, hope you enjoyed reading this post and some pictures that i put along the way.

With the High Commission of Malaysia to the UK and Ireland during the sporting event. I was at the right

May ALLAH bless
