Tips: How To Answer "Tell Me About Yourself"

Saturday, March 25, 2017
Ahoy people of the earth! I hope you guys are doing fine, having fun and living a life full of blessing. Its the second entry for this month, thats someting to be proud of for me. I thought I could never do more than one entry per month based on what happen last year and earlier this year.. Haha..Apparently I'm better than what I thought. 

Anyway, lets skip to the content now okay. Last week, I went to UTM for a clinic for Innovate Malaysia Design Competition. I was there of course to scout for potential talents and also to conduct some interview session with the students/participant of this Innovate Malaysia Design Competition. They are bright students with good CGPA and they have some really good Final Year Project. Any company that manage to hire them later on would be lucky and they would be a valuable asset to the company. Everything was fine during their interview eventhough they have not yet graduated and dont have any prior interview experience but they did okay, their technical knowledge was good and communication skill for most of them is not bad. Its just that, if there is one thing that they can improve during their interview session is how they start the interview. 

Alright, for most interview, at least from my experience as a candidate and also as an interviewer, it will begin with " Tell me about yourself", or "Can you please introduce yourself" or anything that carry the same meaning lah kan.. Now as simple as this may looks it is actually carry a significant something for the interview which is, it sets the tone of the whole interview. If you start with "Ermm, what should I say arr?? Im too nervous I forgot what to say" then you can already tell where the interview is heading for the next 20 minutes. Basically what you answer for this question will steer the direction of the interview and can impact the result. I know there are many, thousands of tips on how to answer this question out there, you can just google it, you might also reach on my blog because you google that.. Haha.. There are many perspectives on this matter, I believe its all good and can be used during your interview session, just pick any of the tips. 

If you ask me, my tips for you is to write it down, memorize it and practice. Doesnt matter if it might sound fake or scripted for as long as you put in good content in the speech, its compact with important information and also you deliver it well with confident. Remember to memorize it! If I am the one who interview you, at least, at least you will get a point for preparing script and for taking your time to memorize it. It is always a plus point for if you put extra effort, in whatever aspect 100% guarantee. Dont worry about being nervous and forgetting the script, you wont. Its not yet a question about how many meter square is the massive Aitken Basin measures, its you are just telling people about yourself. Trust me, you wont forget it. I went to 5 interviews before I land my current job and I used the same answer for all my "Tell me about yourself" question, I script it down first of course and thanks to all the sitcom series that I watched, I managed to act to make it look less scripted not saying that its wrong to look scripted but again, effort triumph everything. My scrip was really simple and I will share it down here.

"Good Morning, first of all, thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to come for this interview for this position. Anyway, my name is Mohamad Hakimi Bin Abdul Jamai. I'm from Sungai Petani, Kedah. I am 23 years old and I am the fifth child from 7 siblings. My father is a retired army, he is currently helping out at the Program Latihan Khidmat Negara and my mother is fulltime housewife. So thats basically about it for my family background, now my education, I did my degree in English Linguistic at Universiti Putra Malaysia for 3.5 years, I basically learn everything about English language and all the science behind the language. I did my internship at Panorama Langkawi where I was attached under Operation and Customer Relation Management Department. What I did was, I handled any customer complaints and assisted any customer in need. I learned a lot of things during the internship. I had a really great time during my Degree years and my greatest achievement would be, I went to Turkey for an intercultural mobility program that was organized by my friends and I under our club, Al-Biruni club. Thats pretty much about myself"

I know its quite long but I was lucky that I was given the chance to finish my intro without any interruption for all the interview that I went to. You might be interrupted, so have a plan B ok. Ofcoz, I didnt say exactly every single word as I wrote but at least it looks more structured and you can ensure that all that they want to hear, is heard. So, guys, write your intro, memorize and practice, if possible try to make it looks natural but if cannot, then its okay. Just do your thing!Harus diingat, this is my perspective on this subject matter so it may differ from other recruiter and from what you have read on some other sites, lets just add this in one of your list of tips for interviews ok? Haha.. Anyway, I hope this is helpful and I hope you land your dream job! Goodluck! Have a nice day you beautiful soul!

Info: How To Make Your LinkedIn Profile "Recruiter Friendly".

Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Salam Muhibbah everyone! I hope everyone is doing fine eventho Im not. Im suffering from some kind of infection on my trachea right now. Just a little bit tho, so no worries. Anyway, Im not going to talk about BR1M or rant about anything.Just want to keep the blog healthy, which also translates to 'boring'. But I dont care its boring as long it could be useful to someone somewhere out there. Well today, this entry is targeted again towards all the fresh graduates out there who are still looking for jobs. I just want to share a bit of what I know from the perspective of a recruiter.

Alright, I am working as an inhouse recruiter for a Semiconductor company in Kulim. As a recruiter, we are required to utilized all the job seeking platform there is out there. To name a few, we have of course Jobstreet,, Monster, so many others and LinkedIn. I want to talk about LinkedIn! Primarily because I believe there is a lot of ways that you can do to make your LinkedIn profile, urm 'Recruiter friendly'. I wont be sharing things like how to write a good summary on your LinkedIn or things like that. I just want to share literally two tips how you can help us help you to get a job.

As far as I have been using this particular platform, I notice that a lot of the users(job seekers) do not put enough things on their profile. Among the things that they always miss out are their contact number/email and also their CV/Resume. You see, what happens when you dont put this things is that we Recruiter would need to send you Inmails and we'll have to wait for you to check your emails to see the notification and only then you would check your LinkedIn mailbox and then reply. This would usually take 2-3 days which is a waste of time, on your side as well mine. If you could just somewhere on your profile, put your contact number, I could call you right now and save us the 2-3 days. So the 2 tips are Put your phone number and also upload your resume. Simple huh? but many seems to overlook.

So how do we do that? Im glad you ask! its a really simple procedure. Would only take literally 5 minutes (maybe less) to include this information in your profile. Alright, you can include your contact number anywhere that you can input information. For example, they will ask you to write a summary about yourself , you can put it there, they will also ask you to write about your education background , co-curricular involvement, you can also put it there. A lot other sections that you can include your contact number. Let me show you how to edit it if you dont know how.

First, go to your profile. Click the pencil icon.

Go to your summary and add your number/email. Done.

And if you scroll down a bit from your summary, you can already see a function where you can upload your resume, so, urm.. Upload your resume!

Thats it people! Its really easy! if its not easy and effective, I wont recommend it to you. I'm pretty sure LinkedIn wont really appreciate me sharing this kind of information with you guys but this is definitely going to be helpful if you really are fully utilizing LinkedIn as a source. As a recruiter, I always think that I am like a bridge for someone out there to cross over from being unemployed to having a stable income/job, hence this entry.Dont forget to connect with me on LinkedIn too!I hope this somehow benefits you guys. Have a great life, May Allah Bless!


Info: Procedure Pengecualian Pembayaran Balik PTPTN Macam Mana?

Monday, January 16, 2017
Salam Muhibbah semuanya.. Rasanya tak perlu kot aku tulis "Im Back!" kan? haha.. Lepas entry ni, I would probably will disappear again for one year.. So, lets just skip that part okey? Anyway, ada satu benda yang aku rasa penting untuk aku kongsikan dengan hgpa especially para fresh graduate peminjam PTPTN. Aku baru sahaja dapat surat daripada PTPTN yg menyatakan aku dapat pengecualian pembayaran balik PTPTN lepas almost sebulan aku hantar rayuan permohonan aku. Alhamdulillah dapat jugak. Ok, entri ni bukan lah untuk aku menunjuk nunjuk yang aku dapat pengecualian ke apa ka. Im writing this entry is because there is a story before aku apply untuk pengecualian tu. Lets get into it.

Aku pemegang biasiswa JPA starting daripada semester 4 aku masa kat UPM dulu. Jadi sebelum aku dapat JPA tu aku mengunakan khidmat PTPTN la kan. Maknanya aku ada berhutang dengan PTPTN dan aku tak habiskan degree aku dengan PTPTN, tp dengan JPA. Months before aku apply for pengecualian tu, aku ada tanya dekat satu kaunter PTPTN yg dibukak dekat Mines Shopping Centre samada aku kena bayar atau tak PTPTN aku sebab aku tak habiskan degree aku dengan PTPTN walaupun aku dapat first class for my final CGPA. Pegawai tu cakap Yes aku kena bayar balik semua  yg aku dah pakai sebab aku tak tamatkan degree aku dengan PTPTN. So, aku pun balik lah dengan hati yang hampaa dan kaciwa sebab fikir yang aku kena bayar balik RM13,000 walaupun aku susah payah belajar dptkan first class tu. Mostly kawan2 aku yang lain pun mmg fikir mcm tu jugak, so nobody really took the iniative to pergi tanya PTPTN punya pejabat sebab kami percaya lah kata2 abg tadi tu. 

Fast forward a few months later, aku dapat kerja and aku dapat surat mengatakan aku dah mula kena bayar PTPTN aku. Aku pun pergilah ke kaunter PTPTN yang di buka dekat Tesco Utara Sungai Petani. Beratur...... Then bila sampai turn aku.. Aku pun isilah borang untuk pembayaran tu, right before aku bayar.. Aku tanya dekat pegawai yang jaga situ, for the last time sama ada aku mmg kena bayar atau tak PTPTN aku tu. Sembang punya sembang, rupanya aku boleh apply untuk pengecualian bayaran balik ptptn tu. Aku pun apa lagi, tarik balik borang yang aku dah isi td tu, simpan dalam poket and senyum. *dalam hati. Then aku pun tanyakan procedure yang patut aku buat. Pegawai tu pun bagilah kat aku Borang Permohonan Pengecualian Bayaran Balik PTPTN. Its really a very simple prcodure actually. Things u need to do/have.

  1. Borang Permohonan Pengecualian Bayaran Balik PTPTN
  2. Salinan Transcript Degree (Disahkan BHEA)
  3. Sijil Degree (Disahkan BHEA)
  4. Offer letter biasiswa (If pemegang biasiswa)

Aku pergi UPM a few days after that, dptkan cop BHEA dan lepastu aku pun submit semuanya dekat pejabat PTPTN dekat TBS. Settle weh. Senang ja. Aku ingatkan tidious kerjanya. Hgpa pun msti ingat byk benda nak kena buat kan? Nope. Simple sahaja. Borang dia pun satu page ja actually. Kalau hgpa nak pun aku boleh emailkan dekat hangpa. So, kepada peminjam PTPTN yg grad first class, jgn buang masa lagi, p cepat settlekan benda ni. Kepada yang sama case macam aku, harap info ni berguna. Ramai weh yang tatau pasal scholarship holder boleh dpt pengecualian jugak ni.. So, now you know, masih ada harapan untuk kita. haha.. Ok, p apply cepat, they will take lebih kurang 1 bulan untuk process application hgpa. Goodluck! Ada soalan boleh tanya kat bawah ok?


Sembang2: Hows Life Treating Me Now?

Sunday, September 11, 2016
Hello you beautiful people! Here I am, back at it again with another not so interesting blog post about myslef. See, eja myself pun tak betoi..Anyway, its been almost three months already I slowly slide myself up into adulthood or working life..If you ask me, I prefer study life better.. Dulu when I was a student, I felt more fulfilled..Why? because when you are a student, you work hard, you sleep late, you spend countless hours memorizing things, you do all these things and the result comes back to you.. You get good result, you learn new things, you grow, all the benefits from your hardship comes back to you.. None goes in vain.. and if other people also benefited from your hard work, still you lose none.. But in working life, its a bit of a different story, you work hard to make some people that you dont even know get richer and you..erm, you dont really get much.. Yes, you will also learn new things, you get your pay also, but it feels a bit less fulfilled than when I was a student.. Call me selfish or apa2, I dont mind. Im just saying my opinion.. Maybe, I am still so new in this new phase of life so thats why I havent really found the satisfaction of working.. Im still positive about this job tho.. Its a good job with a decent salary.. There's nothing wrong with the job Im currently attached to now, its just the whole idea of makan gaji yang I still havent manage to settle myself with yet.. Maybe bila gaji aku dah puluh puluh ribu baru aku nak rasa fulfilled kot.. Weh, since when aku jadi mata duitan ni? Ofcourse I am just saying that in a point of view of a young guy that just three months old in working life.. So you know my opinion tadi tu will evolve and I will grow into a dude that appreciate his work and its effects towards other human being rather than just making equation on how much I gain with the job I do with how much some people gain with how little job they do.. *what the heck am I blabbering here? Lets skip ahead!

Anyway, I have a good news to share here. A good news that I dont really get to enjoy much about. A few previous blog posts ago you can read about how much I was devastated for not getting any scholarship to study overseas for my masters.. I can tell you, I never felt as broken hearted as felt during that time.. I can laugh about it now, but still I felt really lost during that time.. Slowly, I managed to climb up that thorny hill of sadness and make my way up to the moving on part and when I was about to put my dream of doing masters oversea in hibernation mode, I got a news that I am selected for Turkish Buslari Scholarship to study Culture in Sakarya University.. I am truly grateful for God is giving me this beautiful option.. The thing is that now, I have realize a few things that is making me hesitate to go there.. I wont share here because it would be too long then.. All I can say is that, I most possibly am not going to accept this offer.. Maybe the time is again, not right..  

Anyhoo.. I now know how to apply for uni overseas, I know what scholarship are available out there, I know a little bit the trick during interview, so I can always try my luck next time.. Right? The message that I learn from my own failure and ups and cries is that, I can plan and I can plan as much as I want as deliberately as I can but Allah is the best planner.. He already has you life calendared out the best way it possibly could be.. So, just put trust in Him. Have faith.. InshaAllah you will be fine..Alright you wonderful beings! See you in another not so interesting post.

Sembang2: Im Here Now.

Tuesday, July 19, 2016
Hey guys, what have you guys been doing?  I hope, sesapa saja yang reading this blog. Wherever you are, you guys are doing fine.. Happy with your family.. and always be grateful for the fact the you are still alive. If you read my previous entry, I mentioned that I was going to go for a training under Malaysia Airport right? That was my plan at first.. Guess what, God was also planning something for me.. Ofcoz la something better kan.. I was like 80% sure that I wanted to go to the Malaysia Airport training when I got a better offer from a company based in Kulim Hi-Tech Park.. It is close to home and I get to carpool with my brother in-law. Thank You Allah. I have always wanted to settle down somewhere in SP or at least nearby because I want to be able to take care of my mak and abah. Im just so grateful that I get a job yg nearby dengan rumah. Boleh la merasa makan masakan mak every weekend..Hehe.. Yes, aku very anak mak.. Kalau boleh nak duduk bawah ketiak mak sampai what to do, this is life.. Mak has to learn to let go, and I have to learn to make she feels okey of letting go. Anyway, I have been working here for almost a month now.. So far, I have been given only small tasks and one trip to organize.. Its really a blessing that  all my colleagues are very helpful and very patient with me. I am still in my transitional phase not just from students life tp working adult life.. But also from jobless life to notjobless life.. Which has only one slight different. Iaitu? Tidur.. During jobless, aku tidoq umpama seorang CEO yg dah punya 213435 buah syarikat.. Tidur lebih dari cukup, bangun tidur bila matahari melambai pergi diiring azan maghrib (hiperbola semata k.) You get my point right? So, even after almost one month working there, I am still so sleepy at work.. When I get sleepy, things that they teach me, is slowly.. Very slowly getting picked by me.. I really hope that they know  this and that they dont think that I am purposely lembab belajaq. 

In my previous entry, I also mention about sambung my studies to Turkey under Turkish government scholarship right?  I am still waiting for the result of the interview.. but my heart is saying that even though I get it, I should stay.. First, because of the political condition in Turkey now and second because I like it there at my company now. Plus, this company also provide scholarship for their employees.. but still I dont know what is going to happen in the future, because as I am planning my future now, Allah has already planned something that is so much better that mine.. Lets just wait and see okey?

Pengalaman: Turkish Scholarship & Malaysia Airport Training

Wednesday, June 1, 2016
Hey guys *whoever still read this blog.. I know I know, I failed big time trying to write here daily.. I kinda saw it coming actually.. But nevermind, I guess after this, I'll just write whenever I feel like writing without emphasizing that I want to write here everyday. You know, actually, I was doing ok about writing daily if you read my previous entries, I was almost used to it.. But then, something happened which was, I didnt get the master scholarship that I was hoping and praying for quite a while.. I was devastated and kinda lost a little bit.. I had only one plan that time, which was to get the scholarship and do my master oversea. There was no plan B.. I know, its pretty stupid right? You what stupider? I rejected two job offers just because I was hoping (believe) that I would get the scholarship. I was so lost and full of regrets and disappointed all the at the same time. Fuhh, it was a really long month. 

Enough with that, im now back on my two feet and after one month and a half, I believe I have moved on passed that "time". And life is slowly unfolding itself for me.. and so far, it is looking pretty good.. I am now waiting to go on a training with Malaysia Airport and I just got an invitation to attend an interview for Turkiye Buslari Scholarship.. I guess, had I not been in the situation that I've mentioned in the previous paragraph, I wont feel as grateful as I am right now. So, thank you Allah for making me have a little taste of failure so that I can appreciate every little rezeki that you are giving to me now. The interview will be held on 7th June and I'm moving to Sepang on 15th June..Wish me luck for both of those and I'll update here if there's anything new ok?

Movie Time! : Review Cerita Captain America: Civil War

Friday, April 29, 2016
Semalam aku xtulis apa2 kat sini.. Adoyai, dah dua hari dah terskip.. Btw, semalam tu aku x tulis ada sebabnya.. Aku plan nak tulis malam semalam, tapi tetiba pulak malam semalam adik aku Iman Syippo (dia ni Youtuber), minta tolong aku jadi cameraman untuk video baru dia..So, xsempat  nak tulis kat sini.. Video Iman Syippo tu dah diupload pun dekat Youtube, boleh la p cari nama Iman Syippo kat youtube sana...

Harini, aku nak tulis sedikit review untuk cerita Captain America:Civil War..Aku pergi tengok cerita ni malam pertama cerita ni keluar.. Panggung x penuh tapi ramai jugaklah orang.. Aku ni bukanlah peminat tegar filem2 Captain America ataupun Avengers, so sebelum tengok cerita ni, aku xdelah letakkan harapan yang tinggi-tinggi untuk cerita ni jadi sangat2 bagus.. Tapi, lepas tengok cerita, MINDBLOWN. So, apa yang mindblowing sangat tu? Haa.. Meh aku share kenapa aku rasa Civil War ni actually cerita superhero Marvel yang paling best setakat ni.

Jalan cerita, ok jalan  cerita untuk Civil War ni agak menarik sebab dia ada banyak sub-plot yang disusun dengan sangat baik.. Plot utama cerita ni, pada pendapat aku adalah, tentang seoarang lelaki Sokovia yang nak hidupkan 4 orang lagi winter soldier macam Bucky (Kawan kepada Captain America). All other sub-plots, revolve around plot utama tu.. Termasuklah plot, Iron-Man bergaduh dengan Captain America yang mana pada mulanya dicetuskan oleh Perjanjian Sokovia. Nak tau apa dia perjanjian Sokovia tu? Korang kena pergi tengok sendiri k.. Hehe.. And satu lagi yang aku suka tentang jalan cerita Civil War ni ialah, ada sedikit twist kat hujung2 cerita..Aku mmg suka cerita yang ada twisted ending.. So, yeah, this one has that.

Character. Character2 dalam cerita ni di tonjolkan dengan jayanya.. Captain America and IronMan masing2 dengan ego masing2.. Hawkeye being sarcastic as he is.. senang cerita, semua character hidup and kita penonton ni akan bagi perhatian dekat semua hero2 dalam cerita tu as if depa semua watak utama dalam tu.. Annddd... Plus point untuk Civil War ni, depa masukkan Spiderman, Antman dengan Black Panther sebagai penambah perasa dalam cerita.. Aku tak tahu orang lain rasa macam mana, tapi aku sampai ke hujung cerita even sampai dah balik nak tidoq masih teringat scene diorang lawan ramai2 dekat airport yang melibatkan Spiderman dengan Antman.. Aku rasa, that is the best part of  the movie la.. In fact, that is the best moment of all Marvel superhero film.. Haha.. Over pulak aku kan..

Secara keseluruhan, filem ni mmg very well done la.. Rasa macam nak p tengok sekali lagi ja.. Seriously guys, this one is very2 good..I would give a 9/10 rating for this movie.. In fact, I believe IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes pun akan bagi rating yang tinggi untuk filem ni.. So, go watch it now! Oklah, sampai sini dulu k.. Jumpa esok!

Jom Tengok!: Lambaian Terakhir Short Film

Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Guys, today's entry is going to be so short. As I've mentioned in a few entries back, I have just finished my degree a couple of months ago.. As it was our last time being together as batch mates, my friends and I decided to make a short film about our last days in UPM. This short film is actually the continuation of the first short film that we produced two years ago. The first short film is called Temuramah Bersama Pembunuh and it got like quiet viral in UPM. So, since people seems to love the kind of short film that we produced, we decided to make a second one. Which is entitled Lambaian Terakhir.. It was so much fun shooting this short film and our editor/director put so much effort into this little project of ours. So, whoever is reading this entri, lets watch this short film with me will you? Leggo!

Tips: Things To Do When Visiting Langkawi

Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Hey, its me again! Still on the mission to write on this blog every freakin day! Will I make it? Absolutely no. Because I have already skipped one day which was supposed to be day 4. But nevermind.. Lets make it up! We can do this! Now, today lets talk about Langkawi Island.. Which is also known as the Pearl of Kedah or is it Diamond of Kedah.. Well, in Bahasa Malaysia it is called Permata Kedah.. So, what actually do I want to share here? Well, I actually did my internship in one of the tourist attractionS in Langkawi, in a company called Panorama Langkawi Sdn. Bhd.. This is the company that runs the famous Langkawi Cable Car.. I was there for almost three months, so I can share with you guys a little bit about what to do in Langkawi.. Im not going to share like an itinerary or any kind of schedule whatnot. Im just going to list down the things/place that you should do/go when in Langkawi.

First, the ferry fees from Kuala Kedah to Langkawi is RM23 as up this very moment, that is price. Meanwhile, from Kuala Perlis to Langawi, the fees for the ferry is RM18. From Kedah to Langkawi would take about 2 hours and Kuala Perlis to Langawi about 1 hour. Below are the things that you should do when in Langkawi.. These list down below is very brief, there wont be any explanation on price or closing/opening hours and things like that ok? 

1. You must rent a room/hotel/motel/homestay near Chennang Beach.
2. You must go to Langkawi Cable Car.
3.You should do the Island Hopping.
4.You Must Go to Pantai Kok, Pantai Pasir Tengkorak and Teluk Datai.
5.You have to walk on the Chennang Beach at night.
6. You really need to go to one of Langkawi's Night Market. 
7. You also need to walk on Pantai Kok in the evening.
8. You must try Langkawi's TomYam.
9. You must ride/drive around the whole island of Langkawi.
10. You have to buy some really cheap chocolate at HIG.
11. You Must Hang Out at Dataran Helang in the evening.

Yeah, there you have it. 11 things you must do when you come to Langkawi. There a whole lot more attractions in this beautiful island but those that I have listed for you are the things that you must do if you want to say that you've come to Langkawi. Oh, I miss the moments when I was there. Everything was so much cheaper and all the scenary was just incredible. Okey, I wanna go cry now. See you tomorrow.Assalamualaikum.

Tips: Petua Awet Muda.

Monday, April 25, 2016
People say, You are as old as you feel.. Its true. very true indeed. Tapi kata-kata tu is applied to the spiritual/psychological part of yourself only. Betul tak? Sebab tak kira semuda mana pun kita cuba untuk rasa, tubuh fizikal kita tetap akan menua. Kedut tetap akan muncul. Gigi tetap akan rapuh dan jatuh. Badan tetap akan membongkok.. Or. Is it though?  Yes it is.. Proses penuaan pasti berlaku, dan walaupun kita tak boleh nak hentikan proses tu dari berlaku, kita masih boleh buat sesuatu sebenarnya untuk perlahankan kadar kelajuan proses itu.. Dalam entri kali ni, aku kan kongsikan sedikit tips nak kekal awet muda yang aku dapat daripada pemerhatian aku terhadap mak aku sendiri. No no no. ini bukan sebab aku takdak idea nak tulis apa kat sini mahupun sebab aku malas nak baca kajian2 saintifik yang ada kat luar sana.. Nope. Bukan sebab tu. Tapi sebab aku sendiri dpt tengok macamana mak aku nampak muda jauh dari umur dia. Dan bukan aku sorang ja yang cakap cmtu, tapi ramai lagi yang setuju.. Kalau nak bandingkan mak dengan rakan2 yang sebaya dengan dia, mmg nampak perbezaan yang jelas..Kawan-kawan dia ramai yang dah beruban, gigi dah reput2 dan paling tak sedap nak sebut, penyakit dah berangkai-rangkai. Alhamdulillah mak masih selamat dari semua tu. So, apa yang jadi amalan mak?

1. Minum air campuran Kurma+Kismis+Daun Pegaga setiap pagi. Aku taktau sejak bila dia start amalan ni.. Tapi it was quiet a long time ago.. Aku percaya yang sikit atau banyak, mesti amalan dia yang ni ada memberi kesan jugak dekat keawet-mudaan dia ni. Nnt kita sama2 rungkai apa sebenarnya khasiat disebalik semua campuran dalam jus yg mak dok minum ni.

2.Jangan kerap minum ais. Mak kalau waktu makan, dia mmg jarang sangat minum air sejuk. Kontradik sangat dengan anak dia ni yang memang penggemar air sejuk kronik. To be honest, I believe I need some kind of a therapy to save myself from this addiction.. Anyway, back to Mak, yeah dia memang tak gemar minum ais.. Mungkin itu rahsia gigi dia masih tahan kuat. I dont know.

3.Makan all sorts of ulam every meal. Every single meal. Menurut mak, mak memang suka makan ulam sejak dari kecik sampailah sekarang. Ulam raja, petai, jering, daun mengkudu, ahh semua jenis ulam la dia taram.. haha.. Kadang tu, dia makan nasi berlauk ulam sahaja dicicahnya dengan budu. This must have something to do with her being awet muda.

4. Jangan lap air wuduk. Aku selalu lap muka aku setiap kali lepas ambik wuduk and kalau mak perasan, mak akan tegur jangan lap air wuduk tu. Banyak kelebihan air wuduk tu kata mak.. So, itulah sedikit yang aku boleh kongsikan on tips awet muda ni.. I dont know whether this is scientifically correct or not, but this is what I observe from my mom. Orait. hope this help u guys somehow. See you tomorrow.

Cuba teka umur mak.

Sembang2: Apps To Edit Photo?

Sunday, April 24, 2016
Hello guys, its been 6 days already! Everything is going pretty well now here on this blog. Starting from random thoughts, then suddenly yesterday I shared something that might be useful to some of you guys out there.. What bothering me is actually what language should I use when writing here in this blog. English or Malay.. I would very much prefer to use Malay because it is much easier as it is my mother tongue language. But then again, I want to use English because I dont want everything that I've learned during my 3.5 years of degree just fade out like that.. Then it hit me, I can do both! I'll just write in both language, like one day in English and the next day in Malay. There is no problem in that right? Hehe.. So, As for today, I am going to write a little bit about photo editing.. I like to edit photo. I like doing it so much that I can do it all day long.. I'm not saying that I am good at it, but what Im saying is that, I love doing it. I've learned photo editing since I was in high school. 

I started with stupid lame ass software that I have already forgotten the name. I did some really horrible editing back then. But its fine, that is how I learned, heck that is how everyone learns. Slowly I improved, like really slowly. So, I am writing this entry today to help you guys to skip all the time that I spent in the "Bad editing phase", and jump right into "Not Bad Editing Phase". How to do that? Well nowadays, we dont just have computer software to edit photos, we also have our mobile apps to do those things right? and some of these mobile apps can really do some incredible job. I'll just list down below the name of mobile apps that I have been using in my editing, not just for fun kind of editing, but I have also used some of these apps to make real money.. I'll just list them down below, and you guys go check them out and learn how to use them ok? Here we go!

2. Moldiv
3.ProCam XL

So, there you have it. Those apps are my favourite when it comes to graphic manipulation work. Its really complicated if I want to explain how does each of them work, so I suggest you guys go and download the apps and try it yourself! They are very user friendly as well. So, Goodluck! I think thats all for now, we'll talk again soon. I close this entry with some of the picture that I have edited using the apps that I have listed above.

Pengalaman: Macam Mana Nak Tau Jika Ada Jin Di Dalam Rumah Kita?

Saturday, April 23, 2016
Semalam tak post entry.. Tetiba hilang mood untuk menulis kat sini. Well actually sebab semalam memang tak dak idea langsung nak tulis apa. Di tambah pulak dengan rasa malas yang luar biasa. So, kita ambik cuti sehari. Hehe.. Hari ni aku tulis dalam bahasa melayu sebab isu yang nak aku kongsikan kat sini berkait rapat dengan orang kita lah. Sebenarnya around the globe pun benda ni berlaku sahaja.. Tapi sebab aku orang Malaysia, jadi aku lihat pada skala itu lah. Seperti mana yang anda boleh baca dekat tajuk diatas sana tu "Macam Mana Nak Tau Jika Ada Jin Di Dalam Rumah Kita?", itulah yang aku nak kongsikan dengan anda semua. Aku bukan sahaja sahaja nak kongsi cerita sebab nak raih pageview ke whatever tapi benda ni recently ada berlaku dekat saudara terdekat aku. So, aku terasa nak berkongsi sedikit. So, apa yang berlaku?

Ceritanya begini, ada sepasang suami isteri yang baru pindah ke sebuah rumah di Kulim. Pada awalnya tiada apa yang berlaku kepada mereka, namun setelah beberapa bulan tinggal di rumah tersebut, si isteri mengandung. Dalam tempoh awal kandungan tersebut, si Isteri bermimpi mcm2 perkara aneh. Mimpi ular, situasi seram dan macam2 lagi. Dan Si Isteri ni terasa badan lemah-selemahnya sampai tak larat nak buat apa2 kerja. Ya, mungkin ada yang akan kata, "biasalah, perempuan mengandung memang selalu lemah", aku jugak katakan benda yang sama. Tapi dalam kes ini, si isteri hanya rasa lemah yang teramat itu, apabila berada di rumah mereka di Kulim itu. Bila mereka pulang ke rumah mertua di Sungai Petani, badan si isteri tidak selemah itu. Kebingungan, ibu si Isteri yg tinggal di Sungai Petani bawalah anak perempuannya itu bersama suami bertemu dengan seorang ustad.. Setelah di bacakan ayat ayat suci Al-Quran, Ustad itu menerangkan bahawasanya, rumah mereka di Kulim itu telah ditambat seekor "anjing" di dalamnya.  Lalu, ustad itu tanyakan pada suami isteri berkenaan, "nasi dekat rumah cepat basi tak?". Jawapan mereka YA..Maka ustad itu bertambah pasti memang ada yang tinggal disitu selain mereka. Sebenarnya si Suami dah lama perasan yang nasi di rumah mereka cepat sangat basi. Berbeza sangat dengan nasi yang dimasak di rumahnya yang lama. Sekarang baru terjawab kenapa hal itu berlaku.  

Itu adalah kisah terbaru yang aku lihat sendiri yang berlaku kepada saudara terdekat aku. Sebelum ini ada lagi cerita lain yang berlaku pada saudara terdekat juga, lebih kurang perkara yang sama namun ustad yang lain. Juga, beliau menanyakan benda yang sama, " Nasi dekat rumah cepat basi tak?". Aku pernah terbaca dekat satu artikel tentang hal ini lama dahulu, tapi aku sangat skeptikal ketika itu dan tidak percaya dengan info yang aku dapat itu. Tapi sekarang, setelah dua kali aku berhadapan sendiri dengan perihal seperti ini, memang ternyata ada betulnya apa yang aku baca dahulu. Btw, cepat basi disini pada kadar yang bagaimana kan? Berdasarkan pengalaman yg terjadi pada aku dan keluarga, kalau nasi yang anda masak basi dalam masa cuma separuh hari (12 Jam kebawah), mungkin anda boleh cuba rujuk mana2 ustad. Kerana normalnya nasi boleh tahan lebih lama dari itu jika tidak terdedah, Jadi sekarang, jika ada yang tanyakan pada aku atau ada dikalangan anda yang sedang baca blog ini mencarikan jawapan kepada soalan "Macam Mana Nak Tau Jika Ada Jin Di Dalam Rumah Kita?", aku tanya pada anda nasi kat rumah cepat basi tak? Harap info ini berguna. Harap anda semua selamat dalam lindungan Allah. Assalamualaikum.

Sembang2: Scholarship RESULT is OUT!

Thursday, April 21, 2016
Its day 4! I think im going to be just fine writing here everyday for a couple of weeks or so, but after that, Im going to have like an intense little battle with my laziness before writing here.. We'll just see how it goes. As for now, I'll just be writing like a daily journal here, but Im planning to make various type of entries in the future, where I'll be discussing about some things(tips, movie reviews,infos) that are significant and could be helpful to you guys out there. But, for now, this is the only thing that I can offer, so bear with me ok? I am getting there.

Anyway, yesterday I did mention that one of the scholarship results was going to be announced right? Well..the result is as expected laa.. I dont get the scholarship.. If get it, I would have started this entry with something like "Guysssssss I got it I got it I got it", but no. I dont get it. So, yeah. To be honest, I am quiet sad. To be really honest, I am really sad. Why? because I have been hoping to get this one like super badly.. Thats why it hit hard, when I got the email saying that I didnt get the scholarship. I know it was my own self to be blamed because I put my hopes too high for this, but I am just a human being like everyone else, Its hard to content myself from hoping to get the scholarship. Now, after a good sleep last night, I woke up fine and feeling better about it. Maybe Allah has a better plan for me. Nope, not maybe, but I am sure He has a much better plan for. I'll share it here as well when it happen. Haaaa, despite not getting the scholarship, I still hold the offer letter from Glasgow University and I am still trying to contact Yayasan2 in Malaysia that might be able to fund my studies and if you who read this know anyone or any yayasan that is looking for students to be sponsored, do tell me ok?  I think thats about it for today, I end this entry with a new song that I amateur-ly produced yesterday, it is called Lagu Untuk Hangpa (Song For You Guys). Ok, see ya tomorrow! Assalamualaikum.

Despite of having no significant event happening in my life these days, I will try to make an entry in this blog every single day. Lets see how I'd do ok and cut me some slacks if my entry is not that interesting yes? haha. Well lucky for me, today, I do have something to tell you people (based on my calculation, they is 10 of you who's still reading my blog XD). As what I have told in my previos entry, I am now waiting for the results of my scholarships to come out this month and guess what, one of the scholarship will be announced today! Fuh.. Applicants were told about this news at about 4 o'clock today. I havent got the mail yet, so I dont know yet whether or not I get the scholarship (Finger cross so hard, they almost break). The scholarship that'll be out today is called Erasmus Mundus. Its a very interesting scholarship and a very loaded one as well. I'll share about it in another entry ok? Anyway, I'll definitely share with you here about the result. Good or Bad, I'll let you know. #Pray4Kimi.  I leave it all to Allah now. He knows exactly where to put me and what to give me, so yeah.
