A visit to confirm stroke

Today I was blessed to know that my dad survived a minor stroke.

It was unusual for my dad to allow me to take him to see a doctor. It was because my mom has suspected some crookedness at his mouth and his speech was a bit slurred. We thought that it was just a symptom to an incoming stroke but when we went to the clinic my dad was immediately referred to emergency department that we actually went around six after taking food, rest and pray.

Then the doctor confirmed that it was a stroke that had already happened, most probably before waking up on the Saturday. The CT scan revealed that a small part of his brain was damage during the stroke but Alhamdulillah it did not result in any dysfunctionality of his body.

At the moment, we are still waiting for the monitoring of his blood pressure and further advice by the doctor.

Once bitten, twice shy

It is not I don't wanna be a ceo. It is just that I don't wanna go that process once again. 

Nonetheless, I would try other ways to be a ceo. I want to prove that I can beat the system. 

It is up to me to be the best. 

So good that I am not dispensable.

Tersedak dua kali dia!

I saw NJZ today at her workplace. No, I did not planned to see her. No, it was not coincidence. But there was a function at her workplace that I attended. Yes, I talked to her during tea break. I went to her table casually and she was so surprised seeing me that she almost choked, twice and then blushing a bit. But we were fine, we chatted like an old friend. She was nice to me as I was nice to her. She started work last month. Early week of October this year. Her workplace is conveniently located near the ktm station as she took the train near her house in Kuang (kuang kuang kuang, pun intended). Just one stop before the last stop i.e. Rawang. I was funny most of times as she laughed a lot. 

Later it was I'll see you later as the function was over, she said.

Kita bako. Kita bako

Ada seorang mamat dalam cerita Zombie kg Pisang yg tanganya selalu digerak-gerakkan dan tagline mamat ni ialah "kita bako, kita bako", kini tangan anakku Ahmad Ali sentiasa bergerak sedemikian. Ini rasanya perkara biasa apabila dia mula dapat merasakan kawalan terhadap tangan dan jari-jarinya. 

2hb September yg lepas, anakku kini Alhamdulillah telah berumur 5 bulan. 

Semoga beliau sentiasa sihat dan membesar dengan jayanya insyaAllah ameen.

Ten Years Ago

Ten years ago I was only 21 years old. Still stuck studying to earn a degree in the US. I was alone, petrified in an alien surrounding, missing my parents and yearning for Malaysian food. I was high on cheese, in fact I bought a complete cheesecake, one pound or more, only to be consumed within few days. There were days when my diet was just cereals and milk. Only once a week i would satisfy my craving at an indian all you can eat buffet serving halal briyani rice with  relevant meat and veges. Or sometimes we will opt for all you can eat chinese buffet. Or was it this year that i started working as a waiter in a turkish restaurant? The memories i fondly cherish earning money for a living or rather for exploring the US. Or was it because i had to repay someone due to something i have done? Was i a bad boy? Bad boy bad boy what do you wanna do when the cop comes for you. I was lonely because i was yearning to have someone to love other than my familyor friends. I was looking for a lover which seemed far away. Was it this year that i have met someone somewhere when i was with my boys doing the lust triangle exploration? Was it this year that i stalked a girl which were way beyond my league?

Today I am a dad and a husband to a wonderful wife and mother.

Renewing Malaysian Passport 2014

I arrived really early to KL's premier immigration office. At first I thought the immigration office was at the government complexes at Jalan Duta but oh boy was I wrong! The office was nearby Publika (opposite actually), inside the Kementerian Dalam Negeri Complex. Parking was free and i can park anywhere i want unless it has been designated for government officers. 

 When i arrived around 7.20 there were some people waiting outside. About 7.30 am the officer signalled to us to enter the compound. People gushed through the unlocked door. I guessed the door was already unlocked prior to my arrival but people just waited outside. Perhaps they were told so. 
 These are payments for the passport. If you are a disabled, then the passport is free provided that you have an official card to confirm your status. Well, for me, i would have to pay RM 300 for a passport to last for five years. 
 So i got this number, meaning that i was the twelfth person (categorized as regular) (there would be another set of counter to cater for special people like pregnant ladies, old people, people with babies and disabled). 
I came to the immigration office without filling any forms and bringing any photo. As you can see, each counter is equipped with special device to take your photograph. I just brought my IC and my old passport and of course enough cash. My number was called after about 15 minutes. So i went and gave the officer my passport and my IC, then she told me to look at the device (camera) to take my photo. We did several attempts as I was told that my eyes were not looking directly at the camera lense. The whole process took about 10 minutes. Then I was told to wait for my number to be called again. 
My number was called after about twenty minutes. I had to go to the payment counter to make the payment. I got the receipt as follow and was told that my passport will be ready after an hour. 
 And so i went to get something to eat downstair at a nearby cafe. 
The food was OK. Typical malaysian breakfast. After killing some time, about an hour, i went back to the office and noticed that the earlier number had not been called. So i waited for some time while playing with my iPad. Suddenly there was an announcement saying that they are experiencing some problem with the computer system and now that the passport processing will take more than an hour to be completed. So i continue waiting and playing with my iPad.These are the counters where they will be giving out the completed passport. At about 9.45 am, my number was called and they gave me my new passport and asked me to double check all my particulars and then signed at several places including inside the new passport. At about 9.50 am, I am a free man with my new passport. Now i can go travel!

All in all, in took me about 2.5 hours to get my passport done! Well done and keep it up my beloved government officers!
