My body is not as fit as it used to be, especially when comparing my stamina now and before. Ever since I finished high school, I never jog or do any long-distance activity. Just now, I went to the SERF and jog, but I couldn't last long :( But doesn't mean I want to give up. I don't have any particular reasons for doing cardio training, except for losing weight. By the way I just saw my friend's latest picture at Facebook, and my God how he has...grown. Remind me to not increase my weight any further.

There are two things that I constantly do (well, almost constantly): weight training and swimming. Weight training is specifically for volleyball, and swimming is just for fun. But swimming with my friends does has its good points. One of them is it motivates me to do more muscle training in order to swim faster, and also increase my stamina to swim longer. Volleyball is not that tiring compared to other sports (it's rare to be overly sweaty, especially when we usually play at most three rounds per game), so I don't intend to increase my stamina for the preparation of volleyball.

I didn't realize this, but my weight has decreased from almost 80kg last year to only 73.3kg today! I was kind of surprised.

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…
