Hi fellow Malaysians,
I'm sure most of us are aware of the disastrous incident that certainly tarnished the image of our country. Yes, I'm talking about Bersih 3.0. You could see from the media, either printed or online, the havoc created had caused so many damages towards the public amenities and also a few shops around the area. And a police car too. It was overturned, upside down. People claimed that it was to save 2 person pinned under the car after the police car lost control and hit the demonstrators unexpectedly. Thank god the policemen is alive and currently being treated at the hospital and so does the 2 injured people. I hope all of them will get well soon.
Now, back to the topic at hand. Demonstrations or rally, for me personally, it is a nuisance not only to the country but also to the citizens. Just imagine the shop owners around the affected area. They will have no income whatsoever as tourists and shoppers avoided the city centre. I wonder why did those idiot Bersih leaders didn't take the offer the government gave them. A few locations was suggested like Stadium Merdeka and etc. But as expected, they turned it down. They were adamant to enter Dataran Merdeka for some reason I can't apprehend.
Who have to cleaned up all of the mess after the rally? Yes, the authorities. Using who's money? Yes, the taxpayers money. So, tell me, would the Bersih leaders fork out their own money and pay for the damages caused? Never in a million years. They're selfish anyway. Each with their very own agendas and taking each other advantages for their own greedy intentions. They claimed that election is not clean. Well, do explain 2008 where the opposition (Pakatan Rusuhan) won in Kedah, Perak, Penang, Kelantan and Selangor. That's freaking 5 states and not to mention they captured the 2 top rich states, Penang and Selangor due to the industrial manufacturing businesses located there. And still, they claim the election is not clean.
I'm not saying I don't support their agenda, which is to make the election in this country clean. Of course I want that to happen. No matter who won the election, they must win it genuinely and chosen purely by the citizens. But, I am against the method being used to convey their message. Why can't they do it peacefully like handing over memorandum to the head of the country? Or maybe debate it in the parliament? What is this rallying and demonstrating thing. Is violence becoming a norm for Malaysians to resolve issues? We are heading towards being a developed country. Our infrastructures and economics stance is heading that way but our minds, sadly, are still third world.
I hope Bersih and all of the Pakatan leaders come back to their senses and do the right thing. Be a brilliant opposition which fights for economic progress and promote stability. Not this barbaric kind of opposition. We don't need this here. Best example you say? Look at the Democrats (Obama) and Republican (Romney). They do not attack each others personality but their agendas for the country. Be professional and fight for the people. Don't fight for your pockets.
Note: There are times where I wish I could steal you from there and put you here, next to me :)

People usually don't realize that time flies and it flies really quick. Every single seconds gone won't return no matter what you do to retrieve it back. We go about of our daily lives routines to find source of income to sustain and survive in this evil and 'nothing is fair' world. We wake up each morning knowing at the back of our mind that it is a brand new day and things needed to be done and, I'm sure most of us do, including me, looking forward to be back at home to rest.
Have we ever realized that we're getting older as the days gone by? Some uses their time for beneficial activities and some, let's just say they managed to efficiently waste the time given to us. Don't you know that previously the earth only have 4 hours daily? This is because the earth was spinning fast and what happened to our planet that it now have 24 hours daily? Well the answer lies in the outer space. Million years ago, I forgot when, a huge comet hits the earth so hard that most of the rocks sprung out into the space and as time gradually past, it becomes our moon. That's how the moon was created by the way. Now, back to the earth. The comet struck the earth in the opposite direction in which creates the contrast effect resulting the earth to slow down from it's earlier rotation speed. And until now, the rotation speed remains exactly the same from the day the comet hit the planet.
Back to the topic. People need to realize that if we don't fully utilize the hours given, time will just pass through and at the end of the day, we will ask ourself before we hit the bed, what the hell did I do today? Was I productive? Did I just sit back and watch time flies? What I'm trying to say here is appreciate time and do things that you know worth of your time because time won't come back no matter what you do.

It's been a while since I've last updated my blog. Again! There are a lot of contribution factors in which prevented me from frequently updating my blog and one of it is of course a hectic lifestyle. My normal days would consists of working from the morning until the evening and then my night life starts. Usually I have 'Me Time'/sports/leisure activities during the nights of almost every weekdays such as futsal, badminton and hanging out with my friends. You know, for health and maintaining stamina purposes because I've always hold on to my ultimate principal and I hope I can hold on to it until my very last breath which is 'You're wealthy when you're healthy'. In life, it is without a doubt that money is important because you must be fucking kidding if you think money is not important. How are you suppose to survive with it? By eating grass and living under the trees? But, health is equally important because without it, no matter how filthy rich you are, you won't be happy with life. So, I'm contempt with living the normal everyday life, safe in mind knowing that, god's willing, healthy and have a good and positive people around me. I will always strive and push myself to reach my goals in life.
Regarding the title of this post. It's sad to see some kids or some teenagers nowadays disrespect the elderly by saying harsh words to them or even showing that 'please kick me in the face' look. It just boils my blood and sometimes it makes me feels like really want to kick them because I can't believe how rude people can be towards each other. Not mention the elderly. These stupid and pathetic kids needs to realize that without the elderly, first of all, they won't be on this planet and secondly, they won't be able to enjoy the luxury and commodities that this life has to provide. It is the responsibility of the society to educate and nurture them to understand the value of appreciating what you possesses and respecting the older generations. These people are your parents or even your grandparents for god sake. Look at me, I don't have a single living grandparents alive from both side of my parents and how wish I've contributed more to them when they were alive. I know I tend to be quite stubborn when I was growing up and they tolerated with it although I know I shouldn't have done that. They are the reasons why we're living comfortably and doesn't have to suffer much like how they used to.
Conclusion of this is if you treat the elderly negatively now, I'm sure god will do the same to you when you're older. I know you have to forgo some of your ego to respect people but trust me, when you do that, there's always a hidden reward waiting to surprise you in the near future.

Hi to all,
First of all, I would like to wish all of the Muslims out there a happy Ramadhan. It's the holiest month in the Islamic calender due to the fact that Muslims are required to fast from the earliest morning until late evening just to show our love towards Allah, God Almighty. I can still recall what my mother said yesterday 'All of the responsibilities done is for us. Only fasting is for Allah'. Meaning activities such as praying, charity and etc. are done to gain blessings from Allah but fasting is done as it is compulsory to do so. The rewards are not yet known but I'm sure it's a lot.
Breaking fast is normally done in the late evening between 7.00pm to 7.30pm. It's called Maghrib as it is actually a call to perform the 4th prayer of the day but in the month of Ramadhan, it is also a call to break the fasting for the day. With that fact, people would normally prepare their meals/dishes prior it. Sometimes, or should I say most of the time, the table would be packed with food and drinks. That's what happen when you can't control your 'wants' rather than your 'needs'.
Later during the night, it is encouraged to perform the Tarawikh prayers at the mosque with fellow Muslims. Each night have different rewards depending on which night does the prayer is perform. You have two options which is either to perform 8 rakaat or 20 rakaat plus 3 rakaat for Witir. Some of my father's friend, including my father, perfrom 8 rakaat during the weekdays and 20 rakaat during the weekends. For me, it's only 8 rakaat throughout the entire month unless I am motivated for some unknown reasons. It has happened before.
To conclude, I would like again wish a Happy Ramadhan to my all of my friends and remember, although it's fasting month, it doesn't mean all of our activities have to stop. Hehhhhh.

Yesterday, 17 July 2011, I went to Shah Alam Botanical Garden to participate in this event called the Jacob's Walk of Life. The purpose of this event is to promote healthy lifestyle among Malaysians. My day started with a phone call to wake me up at around 5.40am. If it was not for that call, I would have dozed off until the evening. I was horrifically tired because of the activities that I did on the previous day. Thank you so much to PFZ for that wake up call. I'm sure you're horrified listening to my voice upon waking up. Took my shower quickly, start the engine and off I go to pick up PFZ and her friend Meera. Promised to arrive at her house at 6.10am but being me, the typical Fais Azlan, I arrived at 6.30am. 20 minutes late.
Quickly rushed to Masjid Shah Alam to meet with Shida and her husband to lead and show the way to the location of the event. I didn't even know that the place existed before I finally able to see it yesterday. A nice place to enjoy the nature's treasures. Basically we (Me and PFZ) walked for roughly about 1 and a half hour enjoying the scenery along the way. The tress were freaking tall. I mean I have to stretch my neck up to see the leaves! And owh, OMG, the hills were very steep! We have to force ourselves up the hill. Not to forget the unbearable heat that made us sweat from top to bottom.
Upon reaching the finished line, we quickly line up to get the goody bags for us and our friends. As usual and expected, I was used as hard labour to carry all of the goody bags and hand them over to everyone :P Damn, it was freaking heavy. PFZ and her friends chit chatted for about half an hour while I went to check my BMI at the event main assembly area. After that, both of us and Meera went to eat before sending them home. Thought my day had ended? No no no. Send my car for washing and head home. Rushed myself to shower and got ready for my friend to pick me up. And off to Wangsa Maju we go. We have a football match with one of my friend's work colleague's team. I feel asleep all the way. We won the match 4-2. It was a tough one but we managed to get the result we wanted. I even scored a goal! Using my head! But sadly it was offside.
Match ended and we all headed home. As Reza was hungry, we hang out for a while at Makbul to quench our thirst and fill up our stomach. Chit chatted and went back home to get some well deserved rest. Overall, it was a fantastic day as I managed to spend time with PFZ and Meera in the morning and my close friends in the evening :) Alhamdulillah.
