Writing to share. Just.Share.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Hi, how do you do? I know, this blog has not been on the air yet, but I am not like to like want to be glamour or to be known by people, why? Sometimes, it is good to have something that really subtle and really unknown. Hahaha.. why? Because, when I listen to other people, well, famous people, they usually talk about privacy and how they want to be normal not public figure. Well, once you are famous, there is not turning back. It is either two, be the person you really want to be or fake it. Hahhaha.. that how I see things to famous people. Shoot me eyh? 

As you all know, I have blog and what it the things I wrote in the blog really affect my everything. Who knows? right? Let say, people read my blog, and they somehow interpret things differently than I want it to. What should I say to them? Do I have to write an entry per day to actually say how sorry I am about things that I have said, wrote? Well, I really do not know about that. Hahaha.. *see how happy I am...

*distracted for 30 minutes, looking for light reading,

How is that? See, I been writing this entry for like an hour and I did not finish it yet. Ugh! Ugly. 

Well, things sometimes are not the way want it to be right?

Talking about talents and efforts. Sometimes, people put amazing tonnes of efforts for things that he or she loves, but then, when people with talents come in, they do not need lots of efforts because they have talents gifted by God and they just do it without any hesitation. Sometimes, there are differences between people with talents and people with efforts in terms of quality of jobs that they did. Yup. 

During my skills classes at GiatMara Raub, to be honest, I am half-half. Yup, half gifted and half efforts. Meaning, I really need to give a lot of efforts to prove my gift. Its better that way, yes. I know I have the gift but when I looked around me, there are people who are very gifted and they are really good at it, I mean, sewing. Sometimes, I was jealous, but I took a step back and think. And then, I finish my work. 

Some say, I was fast at sewing but they said that my works were not that great. Well, not that I can't be critised but you need to look at your work first dear, ugh! ugly bitches. ups! hahahha..

Well, I am now pursuing my greatness. 

Assalamualaikum wbt

p/s: my tooth-ache. ugh!

Sewing Project for extra income.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Hi, how do you do all? Well, I am now really juggling between two blogs. yes, I have two blogs that need managing properly. My all time blog would be New Interesting Manuscripts and this is my new blog actually. This The English Journey is where I write my thought in English and polishing my English too. *like I told you so many times right , sorry.

Well, this entry should be published last night but the internet connection was in total bullshit, so, I continue to write it tonight. 

Alhamdulillah, my teacher called me today and she told be that, she has a great project to give to me, it was about sewing, of course. We did it before and it was in small portion but this time, it is big. I mean, two rolls of jersey fabric to make the curtain for wedding. Hiihu.. and the dateline would be before 15th September 2013. I am actually quite nervous and tomorrow, I will be going to GIATMARA Raub to consult with my teacher about that particular project. Yes. I am tomorrow. InsyaAllah.

My teacher asked me to do this project with one of my classmates. He too is good at sewing, so, I will inform him tomorrow about the project. And insyaAllah, we will start it right away. Since that I have sewing machine at home, so, insyaAllah, there is noway I could not work for extra money right? 

So, I will update more later tomorrow and tell you about the progress of the project.

Why Do I Blog?

Assalamualaikum WBT,

People usually ask me,

"why do you blog? is it good.. blogging? What do you write? why?"

Well, slow down girls, boys, one questions at a time eyh? Okay, my actually purpose of blogging was assignment. I have another blog called New Interesting Manuscripts (NIM) and I write almost everything. Before I personalised my blog, NIM, it was actually a assignment blog where I wrote about Public Relations and everything about PR. Then, after the assignment was done, I personalised my NIM.

I started writing about all the things around me, environments, surroundings, friends, family, food that I ate, drinks that I drank, past experiences, Internship, almost everything and I love writing it. To be honest, that time, I did not read others blog and personally, I did not really know how to blog. Yes, there are books about Blog for dummies but hell, I am not buying it, why? So, I just wrote everything that I feel good to be discussed.

Before this, I had hard to actually write things. I did not love writing subject, well, I just did not know what to write, but, when I blog, I found that writing is not that hard. As long as you can relate things, then, you can write. As long as you topic is great and the explanation is amazing, then, you achieved the point already.

So, what is the purpose of me blogging?

I write because I want to share, I want to people experience what I have been experienced. I want them to feel the excitement of my story. Well, even though it is not that excited, but hey, as long as I write, then, its okay.

It is not that hard to write something that closed to you. Something that personal to you. Right?

Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: Love my life.

Getting Rid of Things.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Yes, I get rid of my old broken bed. Single bed. It was broken last year but I ignored the broken part and later after it was broken, I fixed it by placing one small box chair under it and it was okay. Until yesterday, I felt like, "it is time for me to let go". Sad? Naaahhh.. I was happy. Very happy.

First, I swept all dusts and such, then, I took of all about 12 pillows, Yes! Just for me. 12 pillow. Call me crazy. Then, I asked my mum, * I need mum's agreement on this, So, I asked her,

"mum, kalau buang katil adik tu boleh tak?" *yes, adik means little brother, huahuahua..

Mum answered,

"Buang je lah, lagipun dah tak elok kan?"

Green light, received clearly! Thank you.

Then, I took the pelapik off and then the bed. I was very happy and now, even though I do not have bed but my room has bigger space. Huahuahua.. which its amazing. You might surprise if I show you my room. It is small. Very small but I am happy. Really happy. Yes.

And, now, I am actually waiting for my brother's wardrobe and he wants to buy new wardrobe, so, I asked him to give it to me. Hahahha.. he said, "okay". but you have to wait for me to buy new wardrobe.

I was like, thank you Allah, even though, its all hand-me-down-things, who cares? I dont! Why should I? I am no cheapskate but I am trying my very best to actually not to buy new things that no necessary, why? because I just think it unnecessary. That is all. Nothing more.

Well, try to watch Extreme Cheapskates on TLC 707, hell!! hahahha

Well, my mum called me already for lunch. So,

Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: hehehehe

Usain Bolt STRIKES Again.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Well, as we all know, the Meteor Rain was shown tonight right? Who saw it? I missed the time and when I saw the news, it was already 11.35 pm, so, sorry, I could not share with you the experience, but remember the Super Moon phenomenon early this year? I saw that! It was amazing!!! Yes! It was.

And if you are like me, taking things in a bit here and there, last night, if I am not mistaken, there was a sport event called IAAF Diamond League, in Moscoww 2013 and Usain Bolt was one of the athletes, of course right? And to be honest, his victory in 100M was like the highlight of the night. Do want to see his amazing photo finish. You have to see it. Like, you have too. Here it is.

See that amazing picture taken by the photographer? *I got this amazing picture from Yahoo. To be honest, it was very irony. Usain Bolt won the race and the bolt stroke during his winning. Like, Usian Bolt Strikes Again. I mean, talking about sport headlines right? Amazing. Human meets nature. #pow

Well, that is all from my part, I am still amazed with the scene. Amazing. Love it.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

p/s: The photographer must be in ahh moment right? ahhaha

What Do I Want To Do In My Life?

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Sometimes, I do questioned myself,

"What do I really want in this world?"
"What do I want to do in my life?"
"Why do live?"

Yes, these are just a few of plenty questions playing on my mind. Yes. Well, sometimes, I have things on my mind, what do I want to do, but again, the execution of those ideas were just not right. I do not know why. 

Well, as you all know, I am just a Kampung boy from Malaysia. I did not learn English language from outside of this country. Yup, some learned from England, America, Switzerland, Australia and such. Whatever. I did not. I learned it from television and teachers and readings. Yes, I read. But then, when we have this opportunity to learn, some of us just did not make the best of it, but then, after learning Psycholinguistics, I know now. Not all can acquire second language. Well, for those who happened to be able to learn second language, applaud yourself for making such amazing achievements. Congratulations.

To be honest, I do not have any English experiences after my uni life. Unlike my friends, they have the opportunity to practice their English in term of communicating, like Ayuni, she is working with Al-Hijrah TV, Belle, she is working with BERNAMA in Economic teams, Dean, who is now a lecturer, Wan Zul, he is working with The Red Warriors team (Kelantan FC) and soon-to-be a MA student, Zakiah, who is know a lecturer too, Tony, a personnel in A'Famosa Hotel, and so many others. I am so sorry for not mentioning your names. You are not forgotten my darlings, *like they read my writings. hahaha

I do want to pursue what I want to do. Yes, I want it, but know, I have the opportunity and I am going to grab it. Yes, I want to pursue a career in business, yes, Fashion Business. I want to create my own fashion line using my own name, Akmall Razlan, collection, sort of, but I want just my name of my clothes. 

I am now 26 years old, people say, you should be working now. Yes, I am, I am working my in my own ways to make my living. I going to earn money with the way I know and skilled best! This raya, I am promoting my sewing skills to my kampung, first raya, I wore a baju melayu with pants ( I made those), then second raya, I wore a thobe (I made it too), and people asked me, "Did you sew this on your own?", and I said, "Yes, I did". "Nice", Well, thank you. Yes, thanking other people for praising does not make your standard lower.

Yes, to be honest, I am happy now. Thank you. Thank you Allah, Thank you parents, thank you family, thank you friends and thank you all. Love you very much.

Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: You are the winner, for a lifetime, if you seize that one moment in time, just MAKE IT SHINE!
