I really have a deep respect to Malay entrepreneur. Often when I met one, my heart mixed with envy and respect. Envy to their courage in mastering their own destiny and respect to their restless hard work to become who they are today.

Today, I had a valuable visit to one of the well-known cloth diapers (CD) product in KL. I’m not quite sure what other products can be found from this company but when it comes to CD, Lunatots will always come along with it.

Office of Lunatots

It was my wife Saturday’s morning to-do list actually. As usual, I will be her best companion in everything and I will always included in her to-do list no matter what. So in my mind, that Saturday event was a routine. I never realize it was something remarkable until I stepped into the Lunatots office.

I met the owner, the designer, and the founder of Lunatots brand and had a wonderful chat that day. The business run by both husband and wife who are still young and still below 30 (at least for another 3 years..hehehe). They are both from IT background and formerly worked for IT Company. The wife started this business as a part time job and decided to work full time some years afterward. The husband then follows his beloved wife footstep.

In my typically complicated engineering mind, I was thinking how on earth 2 degree holder from IT background can ended up selling diapers and make a living..?? I got myself stressed thinking about this the whole day. I can’t find any logic answer for that. And for that kind of thinking, I’m still leaning to Lotus (I’m working here) for my income. For that kind of thinking, I never success leaving my comfort zone all this while. I jumped out from my comfort zone once, but I decided to jumped in again as I don’ have the guts to do so.

That is why, I have a deep respect to Syazwan and Suraya. Today, they have 3 branches of Lunatots in KL and Selangor area. By selling diapers, there have 3 branches around KL and Selangor….3 Branches..!! OMG.. I’m stressed…

It's pay day...

Salary again, an increase of numbers in my account compare to yesterday. The exact same thing did happen last month, and the month before and the month before the month before...heheheheh....That's how when you're working for some company that is not your own. You will wait for the pay day.

I'm happy to receive my salary now. Knowing that a huge percentage of it wil go directly to my pocket and not to the bank. I don't have to pay for my credit cards and this is the second month that I don't have to pay my hire purchase (car) loan anymore. Feel so relief.....

Thanks to the book that I borrowed from my frenz that help me to create my healthy financial attitude. Started with a simpke step at the beginning, I never realize the outcome will be this good. Although it is still a very long way to become a millionaire, I'm just as happy as a millionaire already. Less debt to pay and a lot of extra salary. Alhamdulillah...

So, it is time to reward myself and the family who stood strongly behind me all these years. A nice dinner with a nice surrounding will be a good place to hang out.

My dissapointment

I thought I'm gonna have some vibrant pictures of Putrajaya Hot Air Baloon recently. Purposely planned to snap some pictures during Saturday nite. I took my family on Saturday evening in hope that we can reach somewhere 8.30pm at the baloon area. All the baloons will be on ground at nite but they still keep it in shape by turning the burner once in a while. I wish that I could snap few pictures of glowing baloon. Against the dark nite skies with the right angle and exposure, I will find my way to get the shot that I dreamed.

What I sketched in my head never actually materialize. I never expect the road was so jammed pack that nite. I failed to keep my shcedule on time which due to the traffic. Instead of walking near to the baloon, we ended up walking inside Masjid Putrajaya. I just screwed up...

I only manage to record one scene from that dissapointing nite. And from the scene, this is the best picture that I can get. I just only leaned to the nearest wall. My hand shakes quite a lot....I hate this picture..

2 Major Things

I’m not sure what kind of situation that I have put myself into lately. It’s kinda advanced for me and I’m still quite surprise with what has happened.

The first situation was in my office. We had a meeting with Head of Engineering (aka our big English Man boss) and he just table down a brief explanation on the current and coming project. Then come to the Q & A session where it lasted for more than 2 hours. I suddenly became talkative during the session. Then, I mentioned about hiring the right contractors suitable with their salary to work in Lotus. Not just ordinary English man who only know how to talk but never walk the talk. This problem has been a cancer in Lotus and our big boss do nothing about it. In fact, he seems like backing all the useless contractors every time when shits happened.

Then, I was called into his office personally the next day. He asked for names of people who are not competent…and so I did. All the English man who never walk the talk but like always, he defended them. At least I speak my mind.

The second situation was in my neighborhood. A neighbor of mine was having a big fight and in the brink of divorcement. I was called to become their peacemaker. This is totally new for me. Never in my life I imagine this things would come to me one day. Furthermore, this couple has been married for the last 20 years. Both of them are older by more than 10 years compare to me. Luckily, I managed to calm the couple down but I believe the problem is still unsolved. I wish all the best to my neighbor.

2 things where I never imagined would be part of it. 2 things where no text book or school will teach you, not even in any syllabus. I appreciate the experience that I gained this time. Frankly say, I’m not that good to received all these exposure in life, but this has been some experience for me. Alhamdulillah, Allah has chosen me to be part of his plan.

Mak Apan hilang

I took this article from my email. I wish I could meet the original writer...

Pagi tadi di opis, dalam pukul 9, sedang gua kaver line klik fesbuk sikit sikit, Apan mundar mandir belakang gua dengan muka kusut masai.
Dari tadi gua tengok Apan hilang punca di sekitar sektor operasi. Muka macam ada masalah.

"Lu kenapa ni Apan?" - Gua tanya demi meminta kepastian. Gua dengan Apan ni kira ngam juga la. Budak Kedah, umur muda sikit dari gua dan tak berapa hensem. Kalau tatap muka dia lama lama boleh naik menyampah juga.Dia baru setahun kerja dengan kompeni gua. Sebelum masuk sini, Apan banyak hendel bisnes sendiri dan selalu rugi.

"Mak gua hilang la.." - Apan berbisik perlahan.

Gua punyala terperanjat!

"Mak lu hilang?, bila hilang?" - dada gua tiba tiba mengepam keluar masuk laju laju. Berdebar tak payah cakap la, kencang macam kuda.

"Petang semalam..dah cari merata tak jumpa".

Apan berlalu meninggalkan gua menuju ke bahagian budak budak human resource. Gua tak tahu apa benda yang dia sedang fikir dalam kepala. Gua nak tanya lebih lebih risau kena pukul pula.Apa yang gua tahu sikit sikit, mak dia memang duduk rumah tak kerja, ayah dia kerja penolong kanan lagi dua tiga tahun nak pencen.


Kira kira lima belas minit kemudian, dari jauh gua nampak Apan berjalan semula masuk ke sektor operasi. Kali ni muka dia tak kusut macam tadi dah, sebaliknya ceria macam muka Lan kumpulan the typewriter.

"Mak gua dah jumpa.." - kelegaan jelas terpampang di bibir Apan.

Gua cepat cepat bersyukur:

"Alhamdulillah...Jumpa kat mana?",

Dan dengan penuh keceriaan, jujur, ikhlas, tawadduk serta wajah disinari warna warni rama rama yang tiada belas kasihan pada gua, Apan membalas padu:

"Dalam sinki penteri."

Gua terus tendang kompiter sampai bersepah atas lantai.

MUG la Apan..MUG..!!, pronunciation macam jahanam!

Sia sia gua berdebar. Pagi pagi sudah bikin hati membara.

Maulidur Rasul

Hari Sabtu bebaru nie, Taman aku ada buat sambutan Maulidur Rasul. Ramai la jugak yg datang untuk perarakan. Sepanjang perarakan, selawat ke atas Nabi junjungan kita Muhammad SAW tak putus2 dari bibir setiap peserta. Alhamdulillah…Kemudian ada ceramah, dan disusuli dengan makan tengahari. Majlis pun berakhir dalam pukul 11.30 pagi.

Sebenarnya, ada banyak pendapat berkenaan dengan tarikh kelahiran Nabi kita. Yang kita maklum, 12 Rabiulawal. Ada pendapat yg mengatakan 8 Rabiulawal, 9 Rabiulawal. Dan ada juga pendapat mengatakan Nabi lahir pada bulan Ramadhan. Berlakunya perkara ini disebabkan Nabi sendiri pun tak sambut Maulid Nabi. Begitu jugak para sahabat pada zaman Khalifah Ar-Rasyidin. Ini kerana sahabat akan buat apa yg Nabi buat. Kalau Nabi tak buat, mereka akan takkan berani nak buat.

Selepas zaman Khalifah Ar-Rasyidin dari tahun 11Hijrah/632M hingga 41Hijrah/661M kerajaan Umaiyah pula berkuasa. Bermulalah perlantikan Khalifah secara keturunan sejak dari itu. Pemerintahan berlangsung sehingga 132H/750M.

Kemudian, Kerajaan Abasiyah pula berkuasa. Perlu di ingat bahawa pemerintahan Islam mempunyai jajahan yg besar. Makanya, boleh kita andaikan ada kerajaan pusat dan ada kerajaan negeri. Kerajaan Fatimiyah adalah kerajaan yang memerintah Mesir pada masa itu. Kerajaan ini, Banyak didukung oleh golongan Syiah dari elit Ismailiyah. Byk upacara yg disambut oleh Kerajaan Fatimiyah yg bermotifkan politik. Kebanyakkannya untuk mendapatkan sokongan yang lebih dari golongan Syiah agar kerajaan dapat berdiri kukuh.

Disinilah permulaan sejarah sambutan Maulidur Rasul. Setelah lebih kurang 300 tahun selepas kewafatan Nabi, barulah sambutan Maulidur Rasul disambut dalam masyarakat dan asal maksud sambutan tersebut pula banyak bermotifkan politik,bukannya tuntutan agama. Jadi persoalannya, sambutan Maulidur Rasul kita di Malaysia sekarang nie, kita ikut siapa…? Kumpulan Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah tidak pun mengamalkan sambutan ini. Hehehehe…

Tapi tak salah kalau nak sambut Maulid Nabi. Pandai2lah kita cari pengisian agar sambutan ini selari dengan tuntutan agama. Agar tidak sia2 dihadapan Allah nanti.

Nak sambut boleh, tapi masyarakat perlu difahamkan bahawa perkara ini bukan tuntutan agama. Takut2 nanti anak cucu kita ingat bahawa sambutan ini diwajibkan oleh Allah ke atas umat Nabi Muhammad SAW. Bila itu yg terjadi, maka terbebanlah atas bahu kita kerana menyembunyikan perkara sebenarnya.

Byk cara sambutan ini dilakukan mengikut tafsiran masing2. Di Grozny, Chehnya…Maulid Nabi disambut dengan letupan mercun dan bunga api. Kat Malaysia, kita sambut secara perarakan. Sekarang nie, dah ada pertandingan perarakan dah pulak. Terpulanglah pada diri masing2. Sebaiknya, kita amalkan kehidupan Nabi sebagai tanda kita sayang pada Baginda.

Note : saya masih mentah dalam sejarah daulah Islamiah nie. Kalau fakta saya tak betul, tolong bagitau saya..saya akan semak kembali..
