Guys tie self-esteem to achievements. That’s just how male psyche works. If they have no other achievement besides academics, then it is very hard to not feel inferior to a wife candidate who does better.
Therefore men should excel in more ways than one. This is why people with greater Islamic understanding tend to not be so choosy about their wives. It’s because they have the achievement of Islamic knowledge as some to be proud of.
Of course, we then come to another problem. (more…)

Writing is a therapy. It is a way of expressing oneself and a way to improve your language.
Out of the four language skills, writing is the hardest. So, people who write a lot tend to be able to speak a lot better. They can also understand a lot more. They would also be able to articulate their feelings more accurately.
I find that my ability to write has been in decline ever since my final year at university. I guess the stress of having to produce good academic writing at the time got to me.
It was also the time when I was preparing for marriage. It seems that marriage also gives a good outlet for emotions that writing what I feel on my blog doesn’t have a tang anymore.
Or maybe it was really the time that it takes to come up with a good article that makes writing unfittable in my new working life.
Another possible reason is Facebook. That sneaky little web-app that allows us to express ourselves instantaneously and get feedback instantaneously. It kills blogs! It kills the motivation to write long, in-depth articles in favor of short, curt messages in the category of, “In the toilet now, bawling my head off over that ***’ mistake.” Full stop!
Whatever the reason actually is, my blog(s), have not really been seriously updated for three years! And since I am now in the business of language, it would be very apt that I start to write again. At least this blog will be a good whetstone for me to sharpen my language.

I just went to Econsave today, after a long while of not shopping and just eating out.
The thing about always eating out is that pretty soon you run out of choices and variety. Anywhere you go in Malaysia, the food choices are the same at most of the common restaurants. It always falls back to the generic tom yum and “goreng-goreng.” Which after a while, you get bored of.
A question that has been playing in my mind is why is there not much more variety?
I would love to see arab food become more common in Malaysia. Especially the kebabs and the shawarmas.
Or maybe mexican food. The recipes I have seen online makes my mouth water, although i have not yet tasted any.
Heck, even simple Malay dishes (bar the goreng-goreng stuff) are welcome!
My tastebuds have cried so much for a difference that my recently I have taken a liking (more like a love a affair) to Koobideh Kebab of Parsia in Taman U.
So… what about it people? Anyone wants to open a restaurant with a difference?
Don’t forget. Invite me for dinner!

Last night we spent our first night at our new house. Heheh. Yup! We are moving houses!
Rented though. Not bought. We can’t afford to buy one just yet. 🙂
Anyhow. Here are some pics to how off the house. Bland. I know. But bear with it. It’s just a clean up night!
Wokay… It took me some time to actually begin writing this. Though I feel it’s rather because of mood rather than time.
Anyhow, here’s my take on the KBM program. With pics! Heheh. Enjoy.
KBM KI UTM at TIV
So… What the heck do the three letter abbreviations mean? KBM stands for “Keindahan BersamaMu”, which is supposed to mean something along the lines of “the beauty of being with you (Islam/fellow Muslims/God)”.
KI means Kelab Iqra’. Period.
UTM means (although you probably already know) Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. One of the premier government Universities in Malaysia.
The finally we have TIV, which means Tiram Indah Village. Although I’ll have to say that to say the place is “Indah” is very subjective. Speaking literally, it’s NOT beautiful. It is however a good place for training. We also have good rapport with the owner of the place. Thus the choice of place. Oh yeah, the food there is nice! Heheh.
Wokay. That’s over with the backgrounds. (I know, you don’t really wanna hear me babbling about definitions right?)
This time around the KBM event was for the latest additions to Kelab Iqra’ members list.
This put some questions in our minds. For instance, will the new students be able to accept our methods for ice-breaking? Or will they see it as something abominable?
