Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri

Diam tak diam dah sampai Nuzul Quran bermakna dah 15 hari kita berpuasa. Lain benar masa sekarang di bandingkan masa dulu. Kalau dulu, masa ni dah sibuk beli kad raya untuk di hantar ke rakan taulan dan sanak saudara. Tanda ikatan tulus ikhlas sempena menyambut hari yang mulia. Tapi di zaman sekarang dah kurang dah orang hantar kat raya. Banyak hantar virtual card melalui email atau sms aje.

To me kadang I suka buat kad sendiri. Masa sekolah dulu pernah juga buat kad sendiri, maklumlah nak beli card tak mampu. So jimat la sikit kalau buat sendiri.

A few years back I pernah buat kad. Hmm OK lah dapat sambutan juga... Boleh la komen kad raya I yang dulu.. penuh dgn bunga-bunga heliconia yang amat I minati.

Tapi sekarang alhamdulillah dalam kesempitan masa dengan kerja seharian sempat juga buat Kad for 2007. Mula nya tak de niat pun nak buat card but I thought why not I make a difference this year by sending the card. Terkenang nostalgia lalu. True enough bagi mereka yang kehausan kad raya saya dan ternanti keluaran terhad kad raya saya edisi 2007. Tidak saya hampakan penantian anda semua.

I dah hantar lebih dari 70 keping semuanya to relatives and friends. Dan most of them dah pun terima by now and banyak gak dapat compliment... Terima kasih la atas ucapan tahniah anda semua dan sokongan anda semua - hai macam artis punya standard text aje hehehe.

Dan untuk tak menghampakan semua rakan dan taulan di alam cyber ni. Saya ingin memaparkan kad raya yang dulu dan sekarang untuk tatapan semua dan bagi la komen ye.

Akhir kata dengan rasa rendah diri, salam penuh takzim serta ingatan tulus ikhlas saya ingin mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Maaf Dzahir Batin dari Kami sekeluarga hanyala insan biasa yang tak sunyi dari membuat kesilapan.





My contribution to the society - UTP



Yesterday was just like any other day. But surprisingly I received a request from someone anonymous to add in my yahoo list and as usual I will just accept the request. He is a student from Universiti Tekonolgi PETRONAS (UTP) and he has been admiring my achievement in the Twin Towers and UTP project. So I happened to browse through his website UTPToday something like USToday in US.

Interestingly he has captured some of the article I wrote in my blog about UTP. Surprise surprise!!! He even captured my picture in his blog. So after some negotiation, he agreed to withdraw some of my personal details.. hehehe. Kalau tidak habis la jatuh saham.

Anyway it was interesting to note how student feel about the place that we have built and as usual they could not relate the things that has been constructed with the practical aspects of the usage. He requested me to give insight info of the UTP development and wanting to organise a talk whom I will be the speaker. I am honoured. My desire was to share my knowledge back to the society.

In a glimpse, I am not what I am right now if I had not gone through all the hardship and tribulation in life. Sometime the hardship we faced earlier in our life is a hikmah for the preparation of our better future. Alhamdulillah I have gone through that. But to my dismay not may youngster like to hear lecture about life. They sometimes feel that they know how to lead their life and don't need others to advise them. But I was really honoured there are still someone who appreciate my two cents worth of advise. Thank you Peza.

As requested I plan to write something about the UTP development and perhaps do a presentation after Hari Raya. Maybe I could give a heart to heart talk to those students on a bigger picture of life when I am there. Till then pray for me so that I could give back to the society whatever I know. A word to ponder.. I heard Datuk Dr Fadilah Kamsah once said.." Manusia yang terbaik ialah manusia yang dapat memberi munafaat pada orang lain" Since I heard that I liked to inculcate that into my life. I like to make a differences to other people's life.

So I like to share this with all UTP students when I am there to have the same desire to be a better human being and in a big picture, the better nation and society.

Buka puase at Menara KL

I guess today is the first day I have buak puase invitation. Since I declared take I will not accept any invitation from the last 10 days of Ramadhan, I have been receiving invitation for buka puase almost everyday.

Sometime rasa rugi gak gi makan kat luar ni coz I don't eat that much anyway. Tapi pergi hanya sekadar meraikan aje.

Sambil makan sempat gak posing kat atas dgn background towers..





Interview By Discovery Channel



At last we local had the chance to tell our part of story on our involvement in the construction of PETRONAS Twin Towers. They inverviewed my boss my staff who were very much involvement in making the Towers to what it is right now. It was a pain staking work to ensure everything was made right. I am glad to be part of it as part of my contribution in putting Malaysia into the world's map.

I remember when I did my degree in UK, those British don't even know where Malaysia is and surprisingly they know where Singapore is. At least now when I travel all round the world and told them that I am from Kuala Lumpur, they straight away relate to the Twin Towers. Thanks to the vision of our leaders in making us a pride citizen and nation.

This interview was held mid of last year... while my boss and my staff were still around since they get a better opportunity recently. Maybe my turn will be next.

A chat with Masnoor


Finally i had a chance to have a chat with Masnoor, a friend and a neighbour who used to be my classmate when I was in University. It was a meaning chat about the reality of life... about family and the future of the children. Cam ne nak cari duit to give the best to the children. I think I have to make a big step in my life to move forward and change something for my future.

Last night was the first night gi solat taraweh kat mesjid di Kampung. Suasana sungguh mengingatkan aku semasa di bulan Ramadhn semasa aku kecil2 lagi. Moga kita semua memperolehi keberkatan di bulan yang mulia ni...

So who ever managed to get the limited edition of the card... hargaila kad tu.. dan bagi yang tak dapat, anda semua tetap dalam ingatan cuma mungkin tak tau alamat aje........ Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Dzahir Batin.And I always like this Hari Raya song by Saloma, Fazidah Joned & Sanisahuri

Stand by Me

Shayne Ward Stand By Me Lyrics

Nothing's impossible
Nothing's unreachable
When I am weary
You make me stronger

This love is beautiful
So unforgettable
I feel no winter cold
When we're together
When we're together

Will you stand by me
Hold on and never let me go
Will you stand by me
With you I know I'll belong
When the story gets told

When day turns into night
I look into your eyes
I see my future now
All the world and its wonder

This love won't fade away
And through the hardest days
I'll never question us
You are the reason
My only reason

Will you stand by me

Hold on and never let me go
Will you stand by me
With you I know I'll belong
When the story gets told

I am blessed
To find what I need
In a world losing hope
You're my only belief
You make things right
Every time after time

Will you stand by me
Hold on and never let me go
Will you stand, stand by me
Will I be a part of your life
When the story gets told

Stand by me
Stand by me
Won't you stand
Stand by me
Stand be me

Come on darlin'
Say "I want you by my side"
Say "I need you here with me"
Stand by me
Stand by me

Another Busy Weekend




I had another busy weekend. What I did was to prepare a CV on the blog. I did it. It first mooted when more and more of our staff are leaving the company. I am just waiting the right time and the right company. But I have kept my CV handy. However, to send those CV with pictures of my previous project gonna make the file very big and most often the file could not get through. I was think of a more effective way, now that we have the technology of posting the pictures in the net. Thanks to my dear son for making it possible.

So what I did after sahur was to upload my CV and the picture of my previous project in to my Blog. After completing that I went to repair my TV monitor till about noon and continue on my rendezvous to take pictures of my previous projects. At the end of the day I had some photoshoot in Putrajaya with my one and only green Waja in Malaysia.

I managed to break fast at home with my family...

On Sunday I spent most of the time, writing Hari Raya cards and today is the day to post all the card. Hopefully it will reach the recipient on time. Selamat HAri Raya Maaf Dzahir BAtin to all my visitors.

I did it

Well, I always get nervous when I had to do a presentation. But once I started.. Main bedal aje..Overall I think I did OK. A lot of questions and answers.

It is a good practise to share our knowledge with the society.. Itu la rasa nya bakti saya kalau la boleh di kira bakti untuk masyarakat Malaysia. To be frank I supposed to be a lecturer tapi mungkin bukan jodoh saya... and semalam I met someone form University East London who want me to give a talk about the towers to them. Probably this is the begining...

A Very Special Love....

I love this song very much when I was a teenager and I still love the song now.. and I Dedicate this song especially for you....

A Very Special Love By Maureen Mc Gorven


I never believed in love
I was deceived by love
I never had much luck with lovers before
And I couldn't compete
I seemed just part of the street
To be walked on by everyone but then

Then I found a very special love in you
It's a feeling that's so totally new
Over and over, it's burning inside
I found a very special love in you
And it almost breaks me in two
Squeezing me tighter
But I'm never gonna let go

You're not like the rest
I know you're one of the best
You give more than you should and take nothing in return (in return)
Stay always with me
And I always will be
The one person that you can count on always to love you

And I found a very special love in you
It's a feeling that's so totally new
Over and over, it's burning inside
I found a very special love in you
And it almost breaks me in two
Squeezing me tighter
But I'm never gonna let go
But I...

Found a very special love in you
It's a feeling that's so totally new
Over and over, it's burning inside
I found a very special love in you
And it almost breaks me in two
Squeezing me tighter
But I'm never gonna let go
(repeat and fade out)

Kau Persis Mutiara Di Hati Ku - Anak-Anak Ku Yang Amat Ku Sayangi

Mereka mutiara di hati ku... Mereka pandai mengambil hati orang tua... Sayang Mereka. So semalam sempena my birthday we had some photo sessions, so ape lagi semuanya keluarkanlah bakat terpendam ala-ala model gitu... Well I was surprised to see their modelling talent hehehe.

My eldest daughter Deanna, is very obedient and she wanted to be an Architect. An Ambition in me that never get accomplished. I gave her the name after Princess Diana. Deanna means My Deen or religion.Being the first, she was the most beautiful gift from Allah during our first year of marriage.



Batrishya being the second get her name after Princess Beatrix. That very day when she was born was the moment that I could not forget in my entire life where my wife gave birth to her at home. I was the "Bidan" bidang terjun. I was panicked not knowing what to do and the only number I remembered to call was 911. But now she has a soft heart, so dear to me and caring as well... She loves cats



Balqis being third get her name after Princess Balqis. I remember when she had Kawasaki... I thought I was going to loose her... But thank god we were early to her the treatment and she is alright now. Through her I learnt the art of patient, true love and to be a love giver .... I also learnt that whatever we have in this world is temporary and it belongs to Allah and he may take it whenever he wants. Jazzakallah..



When Jeehan was born, I running out of names. Don't know what shall I put. My boss suggested Jeehan since she was born on Deepavali Day. Coincidently my mom in law suggested the same. I guess she was gifted with that name. Jeehan means victory and I guess it was our victory when we finally went to Mekkah to perform our Umrah. She was the only one who have been abroad and to Mekkah coz my wife was pregnant at that time. Alhamdulillah.

Later I found that Jeehan is the name of the Empress of India i.e. Shah Jahan's mother. I didn't realised that I managed to have my daughters named after 4 princesses...



Leila Nadjwa was born at almost dawn. I was running out of name...and I don't think I could think of the name of another princess.While trying hard to dine her a name. I received a call from the Specialist Hospital telling me that she had some complications. She was placed in the incubator ofr 3 days until, the specialist hospital had to refer her to the general hospital. We were mad with the Drs at the specialist hospital but we got no choice. We concurred to transfer her to GH. At the GH, the Dr who was attending to her told me that she was in critical state. She had to be warded in the NICU due to pneumonia. The Dr mentioned that the chance of survival was low and asked me to pray... However the Dr suggested me to speak to her coz she saied, my new born understands... I did what I was being told.. Alhamdulillah after praying hard she recovered gradually after more than a week...

Looking back, that was the lowest moment in my life... and I gave her that name meaning "Whispering in the Night". Coz I whisper to her every night while she was in the hospital and tell her not to leave us....





Through the years seeing them growing up is a great pleasure to me and my wife. I always wish that they will achieve success in this life and life hereafter.. Be someone significant.. Coz "Orang yang terbaik antara kita ialah orang yang dapat memebri munafaat kepada orang lain" I love you all girls and you all the pearls in my heart. Bak kat Mila.. Kau Persis Mutiara...

Aga Khan Award


Hai tak habis2 cakap fasal Aga Khan award. Tadi tengah hari sibuk dok entertain receipient of the Aga Khan award who visited the towers. Tapi masa tu tak tau siapa mereka. I thought they are some of the people attending the function tapi rupa nya mereka tu penerima anugerah.

The function was held at PETRONAS Philharmonic Hall.Being in there reminds me of the days of my involvement on the project. I was involved briefly on the design coordination issue of the hall and also managed to visit the factory of the pipe organ in Germany. It was the first pipe organ in Malaysia and it was interesting to see how pipe organ was constructed. A detailed and delicate process. It was another building design by Cesar Pelli.


Another surprises I had for the night was the project I was involved with previously namely the PETRONAS Twin Towers and Univeriti Teknologi PETRONAS both won the Aga Khan Award in 2004 and 2007 respectively. This year out of 394 nominee, 27 were shortlisted and only 9 receive the awards.

I remembered the late Tan Sri Azizan who mooted the project once asked, "What it takes to win a Aga Khan Award". Now his dream has came a reality... I strongly believe in the power of dream... So don't waste your time continue have big dream and set high goal to reach your dream. Insyallah if you strongly believe you will achieve it....You will achieve it one day... The only thing is you have to do is have clear objective, stay focus and be positive.






Tonight was a very inspiring night for me to see the effort we had so far is being rewarded. I am glad to be part of the project team to make the vision into a reality. I am also glad to know Lord Foster in the function and had some pictures taken with him and his wife....

This memorable date will be captured in my diary and the nation has also captured it by launching the first Day Cover and stamps for the occasion..

Invitation to Aga Khan Award


I am honoured to be invited to attend the prestigious Agra Khan Award tomorrow at the Philharmonic Hall. This is an architectural award design by Fosters and Partners for the University Technology PETRONAS. And again I am only involved in the masterplan of the project and the construction of Canselor complex. It was an exciting and interesting experience to be involved in a project designed by renowned architect like Fosters and Partners.

Tak dapat award dapat jemputan untuk hadirkan diri ke majlis tu pun dah cukup alhamdulillah... So how do find my Canselor Kompleks.. Kalau senang tu pergi la ke Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS untuk menyaksikan sendiri salah satu senibena yang mengkagumkan di Malaysia.

A Weekend Break in Bangkok




Well Everyone is waiting for the opportunity to have a good weekend. We have ours last weekend and this time around is the trip to Bangkok. I managed to redeem my enrich points and we got it free for me and my wife. Unfortunately the airport tax alone is RM370 each. We stayed at a decent hotel which cost us RM100 per nite and the hotel's location is right in the middle of Middle eastern people i.e. arab. Cam kat Timur tengah lak. So we have no problem with the food and the mosque is right opposite of our hotel.

The first day, we went around KL riding on Tuk Tuk. Tergoda sampai tempah 3 suits and increase my ring collections. It is a lovely blue topaz. We also went to a night market. Hai going shopping u really have to decide what to buy. The next day we went to chak chu chak market, it was so huge and lost of varieties. Mabuk tengok pokok bunga, bought some heliconia, water lilies and artifical orchid for office decoration.



Well sediakan duit aje la bila nak ke sini... All in all it was an interesting trip. Met a few celbrities, Eric Leong of Casa Impian and Suhaimi Baba, film director.

So this week my destination will be to Tioman. Hope fully lepas raya nak gi Negeri Di Bawah Bayu... Teringin sangat ke sana... Ingin ke dasar laut nya dan ke puncak gunungnya.. Ingat lepas ni buat satu lagi persatuan la... Persatuan Melancong.. Ade sape nak join... Oklah ini la sedikit coretan dari saya... Nantikan saya di episod akan datang...
