Biru dan Merah

Biru itu raja.
Merah itu permaisuri.


Raja itu merah.
Permaisuri itu biru.

Si merah.

Sentiasa ada.
Walau kadang roh cuma.

Si biru.

Sentiasa menempel.
Walau kadang jasad sahaja.

Yang merah.

Penyokong setia.
Menahan segala.

Yang biru.

Penjejak tegar.
Mengaut semua.

Bila tiada sang merah,

kus semangatnya.

Bila tiada sang biru,

longlai langkahnya.

Okay dah tak tahu nak bermadah.

The point is, gue rindu serindu rindunya by Spoon. Kbai.

Nukilan ketika emo.

Bila terbiasa dekat.
Bila terbiasa bersama.
Bila terbiasa dilayan.
Bila terbiasa dimanja.

Bila tersedar jauh.
Bila tersedar terpisah.
Bila tersedar keseorangan.
Bila tersedar sendiri.

Gundah. Gulana.
Sedih. Sayu.

Si pelahap Subway footlong pun boleh tak habis separuh 6 inch.
Si pelahap unta pun boleh jadi tiada selera.

Si workaholic pun boleh buat kerja tak menjadi.
Si enthusiastic pun boleh jadi lemah semangat.

it's a huge relief for me for now.

I am thankful and grateful.

Kolej Komuniti Jasin Melaka

Assalamualaikum dan selamat sejahtera. *sapu habuk jap* Maaf dah lama tak update due to workloads. Bila ada kesempatan ni, I really need to update at least one post sebab ada yang dah berbunyi tentang ketebalan sawang di muka blog ini. Hehe. :P

Well, I have lots to update actually tapi I would wanna share on me being a lecturer at Kolej Komuniti Jasin Melaka first. Why? Because I'm going through a new phase in life over there (coz I'm in KL right now) and the new experience is very different from what I did before. It's only 2 months and I enjoyed the journey for now. Well, some people have questions. They always ask the question of why. So, here's my answers to the FAQs. :)

1. Why do you change on what you do for a living?
Well, I don't change on what I'm doing for a living. The fashion and entrepreneurship industries are what I get involved into during my study years and I love involving in it so much even until to this very second. It's just that I was under a scholarship during my study years and I got called to serve the government as per the agreement contract.

2. What do you actually do now?
I'm a full time lecturer mainly teaching English subject. I do teach other subjects under the general studies unit too. I also like to da'wah in my own way. So, I guess this is Allah's way of giving me the opportunity for what I wanted to do before. Besides that, I always have my own mission to help the nation. Allah has the best plan for me. He sent me to a place where I can literally help our anak bangsa in lots of ways. May Allah ease my journey here. I wouldn't wanna elaborate more on this because I really don't know what will happen yet but if I ever get the outcome, I will actually reflect and share the beauty of it with you.

3. So you totally quit your business?
I wouldn't say I quit because I'm actually working on a project right now. Even though the progress is rather slow but I will make sure to make it happen. What project? You'll see so stay tuned.

4. Is Kolej Komuniti Jasin Melaka a private college?
No, it's a government learning institution just as other IPTAs under the Ministry of Education Malaysia. You can even apply to community colleges through UPU. But most people are not aware of our existence yet. For your information, we have over 90 community colleges all over Malaysia. It has been over 10 years since the first one was built.

5. What courses are offered in community colleges?
It depends on the community colleges. As for Kolej Komuniti Jasin Melaka, we offer you 4 courses which are Sijil Multimedia Kreatif Pengiklanan, Sijil Sistem Komputer dan Sokongan, Sijil Pelukis Pelan Senibina dan Sijil Akauntasi. There are 3 semesters in 1 year and the courses offered requires the students to complete their courses within 4 semesters. Some community colleges even have Diploma courses.

6. Who can enter community colleges?
Any Malaysian citizen who passes SPM regardless of age, whether it's 18 or even 45. Occasionally, we also offer a special program for any Malaysian citizen who did not pass the SPM to undergo a 2-month course in order to enable them to further their study to the next level (certificate).

7. After the students have finished their study, where can they go?
They can always further their study to the next level. Diploma -> Degree -> Masters Degree -> PhD. Just as the others. Or they can even work. In community colleges, we focus more on skills rather than philosophical  or theoretical approach.

Okay, enough on the FAQs. As I go along my life with Kolej Komuniti Jasin Melaka, I will update you on what's happening now and then. I do update frequently via Instagram. So follow me if you feel this blogpost is not enough (perasan).

Perkampungan Ikan Bakar Terapung Umbai

Okay, ini cerita masa gue mula-mula dapat khabar berita kena laporkan diri di Kolej Komuniti Jasin, Melaka bulan lepas. Weekend sebelum kena lapor diri tu gue dan si dia pun pergi lah Melaka untuk mencari tempat berteduh dan kenal pasti abang atau kakak kawasan yang available. On the way to tempat kejadian, gue noticed banyak medan ikan bakar. Gue pun meleleh lah air liur lalu teringat member gue ada pernah sebut pasal Umbai. So, gue pergilah yang terapung punya tu. Masa pergi tu kawasan dia besar tapi yang buka kedai cuma 2 sahaja. Satu yang dekat entrance, satu lagi kat hujung belah sana. Disebabkan yang dekat entrance tu ramai, gue pun pergilah yang dekat belah hujung sana. Lapo lah katakan. Tak sabau, bak kata orang Melaka. Hehe.

Nama kedai yang gue pergi tu was Sempoi kot? Tak ingat dah. Gue pun order lah;
- Seekor ikan siakap bersaiz sederhana (separuh bakar berlada and separuh masak 3 rasa)
- Seekor sotong digoreng tepung
- Sebiji kelapa untuk diminum airnya
- Segelas fresh orange
- Sepinggan nasi putih
- Sebungkus nasi lemak

Masakannya sedap tapi tidaklah seperti yang dibayangkan. Sebab ramai bagi feedback macam terlalu sedap. Gue tak kecewa tapi gue anggap perkara ini seperti indah khabar dari rupa. Selepas sendawa kekenyangan, si dia pergi membayar hidangan yang telah dilahap. Semuanya RM53++. Untuk first timer macam gue time tu, agak okay lah kut? Tetapi setelah sebulan bermastautin di sini, baru gue tahu yang gue pergi salah tempat dan harga yang dibayar agak mahal berbanding experience gue makan di medan ikan bakar yang lain. Tidak mengapa. Salah seorang pelajar gue ada beritahu medan ikan bakar yang best di Alai. Seperti yang direkomen oleh makcik gue. Gue juga baru tahu tempat yang orang sebut best sangat di Umbai tu. Nanti gue pergi, gue review ye. Tapi harap maklumlah. Lauk gue sama je. Cuma dapat bandingkan servis, rasa dan harga je lah. Hehe. Okay lah, gue nak minta diri dulu. Bulan puasa buat food review ni agak mencabar iman. Heh. Enjoy the pictures. Sekian.

Pre-Loved & Charity Sale by #AdraLaKayena

I have dreams. Dreams to do charity without any worries of own income. Dreams to build shelters for the less fortunates. Dreams to sponsor children for education. It sort of brings calmness in me. Dosa pun banyak lagi. This is one of the ways I could do to increase my deeds. Some people may be rewarded Jannah due to their deeds of prayers, zikrullah, sunnah, fast, etc. Who knows that I may be rewarded by the act of giving. Wallahualam. I always pray to ensure my intentions are right, there's no riak in my doing my deeds, etc. It's hard when you're doing the deeds with people around you. Those issues may occur. But I know I couldn't make it all alone. We need families and friends to enable our mission to be accomplished. We also can share our rewards together for the deeds done. It's a positive matter that we should invite and encourage people to do. All for lillahi taala.

So, the Adras came out with the idea to help the Syrian family refugees residing here in Malaysia and also the people of Palestine. We decided to gather used and brand new clothes, electrical appliances, accessories, home decorations, books and many more. We also welcome those who wanted to drop their belongings. We learned that raising fund was never easy. We went through challenges in making it a reality. We even thought of giving up and postponing it. But Alhamdulillah, we made it.

We weren't sure of the crowd during the day. But we stayed. Alhamdulillah, we got positive feedbacks. We raised fund to almost RM2000 on that day. Thanks to those who came and supported us. Thanks to Aman Palestine and Mercy Mission too. We also held sharing sessions with sis Ayesha Syahira and sis Maria Elena. What a bless for having them with us sharing their experience and knowledge on Islam.

There will be the second edition of our project but just wait for the details. We have not decided the date and venue yet. Again, thanks so much to those who contributed and came. InshaAllah we'll see each other again. And here are bits of pictures taken at the event day and the day before. Hehe. We had iftar together at sis Maria Elena's crib. Thank you! :)
