To My Brother, Zareef

I couldn't find other good image, so deal with it :p

I know it is TOO late to wish for a good luck in your exam, but I do hope you will do your best in your last paper tomorrow

I didn't saw you online, so the good luck wish is also delayed :p

If you got good results, then I'll treat you with something nice when I get back to Malaysia someday~(maybe a Wii?)
Don't worry if you don't get a good result, but make sure you don't make the same mistake for SPM

You know, you always make our house feel more alive
So I guess things will be much more different if you are the one who go to US instead of me

Make sure you perform all the prayers
Make sure you study harder for SPM in the next two years
Make sure you are close to dad, not like me
Make sure you keep mom accompanied, so she won't cry whenever she thinks about me
Make sure you don't make sis mad at you
Make sure that my PS2 is not covered with dust, because I still love my PS2
Make sure you do other things rather than stuck in front of the laptop playing DotA
Make sure you tell mom if you have a girlfriend

...and other things that you feel you need to do

You gonna have three month of holiday, so make full use of it

You still hold the responsibilities as the last son, so I hope you can show that you can be even better than myself

Hope there are some change in you when I come back to Malaysia

Love ya~

Your not-so-helpful brother,


  1. SIGH. I wished, as a big sister I could've been more helpful from the start. No worries, for SPM, I'll be watching him.

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…

Death in the Community

All of my housemates returned to their parents' house this weekend since we have public holiday on Monday. I stayed because my mother is not home and I have exam on Tuesday.

I don't mind being alone (isn't it weird for an attention seeker?), but it is too quiet in the house so I went to the nearest surau for Zuhur prayer. To my surprise, there were a lot of people there, and the main prayer room is full, compared to the usual only 3-4 rows of jemaah.

The prayer went as usual, and I think I had more peace being surrounded by people (hoho). After the prayer, the imam announced that we will be making a prayer for the recently deceased (solat jenazah). No wonder there are a lot of people.

Looking at the scene, I can't help but remember the day when my father passed away. His body was carried from Kluang, Johor to Shah Alam, and brought to a surau nearby for solat jenazah. Today's event reminded me that a community is very important for our well-being. Just imagine, ran…
