Iftar at UM



I am looking forward to have at least a day iftar with my uni friends. I have my own reason for that. I called one of my friends to ask about it and hopefully there will be an iftar for us this year.

Unfortunately, he said, seems like no one plan to have it. I was like, seriously? Every year korang buat kot. How come this year tak ada?

However, Thank you Allah, he said, our prof will arrange iftar for her department and she invite all alumni to joint, "Kau tak baca wasap ke?". Ya, I am the most non productive group member. But that's not the point, the point is we will having an iftar this year, score!!

Story short, in the day event, which is last two Friday, suddenly me keep on open the alumni group wasap from the early morning. Just to ensure I will be updated with all non informative text from others actually. Never mind. After solat Jumaat, one of my friend start asking who will be going tonight? Raihan? Specifically he mentioned my name. Wow, feel like I am the important character. But I don't reply him and I just act normal because I want to surprise them.

They said, they will be coming early, around 6, just to make sure we will have some time to lepak and borak, we have been not seen each other quite sometime by the way. And most of the member who confirm to joint was so excited in the chat group because this time we will have an iftar at UM, this is like homecoming moment.

Just like most of the previous gathering, I'm the one who first arrived. Padahal aku keluar lambat dari office. Never mind, they still surprised when they saw me. I guess.

We had a lot of sharing, talking, laughing and eating moment. I really appreciate this meeting. We recall our memories in this faculty, the building had change a lot, we can't even remember where the wash room and the surau. As usual, me and one of my friend who still single jadi bahan. I don't mind, its create a situation, I mean a memorable and fun situation. Tak boleh gurau, duduk surau lah..

When we merantau and apart from our family members, friends are our family then. I hope this friendship will last until jannah. After the iftar, I go straight back to kampong, to spend time with mak and abah pulak.

Until next time.

Day 2

Seriously bro? You don't even post about day 1, now you jump to day 2?? and about what though?

Just nothing. Saje buat gempak. Like I just faced a new phase in life and try to update a daily basis progress which I don't have any actually. Just a typical daily dull life.

Here the things by the way, someone had become a radio karat in my office. Some colleagues started teasing at me and said "I knew already.." "Don't want to tell me haa.." and they keep giving cynical smile when we were bump while walking to surau or toilet.

To tell you the truth, I don't like it. This is not part of my plan. Not even close. Plus, I don't even know who is the radio karat. I was look at some people and gave them a suspicious looking eyes, hope they gelabah with my serkap jarang, but all of them make an innocent faces.

Oh man.. Malu saya dibuatnya~~

However, as what we learned in ugama class, things happened as kehendak Allah and there mus be a reason why, right. InshaaAllah, aamiin.

Pray for me. Untill next time.

Ramadhan Kareem

Hi. Seems like I really don't have much time to spend for this blog. Oh wait, I just read my previous entries and WTH?! how come my admin wrote with those grammar? Like not even me, people will notice rightfully "This is not him.. I know.. I know.."

Oh man, I need to go to English class.

Anyway.

About this Ramadhan, it is totally different if compare with my previous years. Alhamdulillah, its much better and mature. Our boss organized a daily hadith Qudsi and taddabur (I'm mot sure how to spell) classes. Even though in the first class people was so sleepy but the Ustaz keep on talking like the crowd pay full attention to him. Tergangguk hangguk.

However, I am glad that I've got a good point in each day. Nampak tak? I use 'A' kat situ, hahaha. Well, you better grab one than nothing, right. Because the speech that the Ustaz given was to make the point concrete and people can feel and understand easily. As listener, we have to be wise to catch what is the main point.

Day after day, the crowd including myself become more well behave, we do pay more attention and asking questions, most of the time the session which should take half an hour become one hour and its still not enough. Well, dah rasa berdosa with issues given, macam macam lah nak tanya, if the shoes fit, as the saying goes..

The more we learn and get to know new things, its much more we don't know.

So, lets try to spend some time to learn about our ugama. Its for our bekalan in akhirat.

Until next time.

Home

I don’t have much things to share since I am not doing something can be share excitedly. My life since past 2 years was so lame and flat and dull. I just go with the flow and do things whatever people at my age doing.

Such as by a house.

Buying a house is a big deal right. Its involved a high commitment especially for people like me, we are depending on the big loan amount and it almost cover the total price of the house, which mean we don’t even have much money to pay a down payment, sigh. Also it will tied you like for the rest next whole of your life. It need a lot of process as well and phases.

But how this by house things can coming to my mind?

I was lucky I have great best friends who encourage me to think about to get a house. And of course they are older than me. The best part is the way they talk about it, doesn’t make me pressure at all. They just make me to think by my own self, of what I really want about what kind of home I like to have. To be frank, I spent a year to review how does the property industry in Malaysia or Kuala Lumpur is going. I went a lot of property exhibitions, show house event and go to the website about property. I compared a lot of property in terms of price, space, location, developer, privileges, type of property, ownership of land, future surrounding and many more.

When I look back, seems like it’s an evolution of myself, from the beginning when I attended property exhibition, I was zero knowledge and no one approached me. I am serious! Even though I am the potential buyer but at that point of time I really don’t understand who are they looking for? Eventually I become more voice out, straight away ask about the price, be more firm of what I know or what I want. Then the agents started approached me when they saw I had a long conversation with another agent.

This process also need a cost in a huge amount like 500 to 1000 which you’ll losing it, depends on which developer you are liaise. As for myself, I don’t have any experience on how to buy a house at the beginning, just totally based on my friends experiences. Hence when I found a good house which I had consider a lot of things (I guess), I booked one apartment. Yeah, it’s kind of achievement in my life. I booked a house man! I will have a very my own home. That time I already imagine me open the door after coming back from work and seat at my sofa and watching TV and with cool air form the air conditioner.

However my loan was not approved. But I guess it was a blessing in disguise which I think that property will not good for me. I have overlook at some point and I glad it wasn’t approved, even though I lost some amount like I said just now.

My dream house was broke.

Since then, I become more particular at every single things, but for sure it won’t be a perfect one. I noticed that after a lot of visits on a same properties, the price increase significantly! Who the hell control these market price man?!  Then I started to plan what I want. I have to do a checklist and budgeting. I list down what is my target property and I do analysis at every single factor, and again there are still have pro and cons. At the same time I start calling KWSP, banks and lawyer as well as my friend to get more clear picture of how to by a house.

So, at the second time I booked a house, I was jot down all the chronologies of all my activities when I bought it. This is very important for me to make a follow up at respective parties involved like agent, bank and lawyer. Just like I said, I’m doing this based on other people experiences, if they said they take two weeks to get feedback from the banks, then I assume mine will be the same and I put a timeline what the next date for me to follow up. Its easy for me to keep track and I want to ensure that I will not miss a step.

It’s an interesting experience and I am very happy when its all done. I am waiting the property to be complete in 2018. Now, I already start paying the loan interest.
