Kundasang, Sabah ( Sept 2014)


His name is Adam

Yeah. My son named Adam. He was born on 1st December 2013 at 6:53AM. Despite having to wait 53 long dramatic hours due to some delivery complications that my wife has endured, everything has gone very smoothly and beautiful. Alhamdulillah.

Thanks to Almighty God, Allah. Thanks to PPUM staff for their care and support during my wife’s labor and post-delivery. Thanks to friends and family who visited us despite their busy schedules, and wishes from all over the world.

This is totally new chapter and marked as the most important defining moment for me and my wife so far.

That priceless moment, when I witnessed the two loves of my life start getting to know each other all over again, thus makes my poor father’s heart just melted.

Aye. I’m a father now. I officially welcome myself to the club.

Song in my head at the moment:

Alahai Tok Penghulu, Daulat Melayu

National Underground Code - Maju

Mana si tok penghulu,
heboh, sibuk dengan urusan sri paduka baginda,
yang hebatnya hanya pada nama,
yang langsung tak ada pentingnya pada jiwa rakyat jelata,
orang susah, orang papa kedana…

mana si tok penghulu,
sibuk dengan urusan seri paduka baginda..
canang sana sini daulat tuanku,
tapi orang susah yang banyak dekat bawah tu,
depa buat buat tak tau… Continue reading “Alahai Tok Penghulu, Daulat Melayu”

Anyone falling in love this week?

Winters: These men have been through the toughest training the Army has to offer, under the worst possible circumstances, and they volunteered for it.
Buck: Christ, Dick, I was just shooting craps with them.
Winters: You know why they volunteered? Because they knew that the man in the foxhole next to them would be the best. Not some draftee who’s going to get them killed.
Buck: Are you ticked because they like me? Because I’m spending time to get to know my soldiers. I mean, c’mon, you’ve been with them for two years? I’ve been here for six days.
Winters: You’re gambling, Buck.
Buck: So what? Soldiers do that. I don’t deserve a reprimand for it.
Winters: What if you’d won?
Buck: What?
Winters: What if you’d won? Never put yourself in the position where you can take from these men.

Stop making stupid mistakes, Ryanair not so bad after all

Ryanair Boeing 737-800 At Manchester International Airport (wikipedia)

I like to further my discussion with friend regards to his FB post about ‘Ryanair being the worst airline experience’ quoted from unmentioned site.

My take on this, labelling game is lame but something that I can kind of agree with, considering it’s not just a myth.

Worst airline experience? before continue that, one need to understand the very simple facts of buying rules: You’ll get what you pay for. Hence, don’t expect too much and you won’t be disappointed. If you can’t comprehend this simple facts properly, either you are not so adventurous type or simply stupid. Continue reading “Stop making stupid mistakes, Ryanair not so bad after all”

There’s a reason why you can’t sleep at night. There’s  a reason why you eat rice. There’s  a reason why you love your parent. There’s a reason why you longing for an absent feelings. There’s a reason why you haven’t found the right one yet.
