Peek a Boo!

Salamz,
I know.. I know... My bad!!!
with such "lame" reasons I haven't updated my blog at all.
Honto Gomen ne!! (Bow)

I've been struggled with so many things to catch ups...

1. Work trip to Terengganu with my senior colleagues - LRGS project in UMT. Honestly I've miss this place so much. Got the opportunity again to try ICT. :D I really enjoy the journey driving from Penang via Kedah and Kelantan to Terengganu. Such a wonderful journey! The serene and unimaginable looks of flora & fauna! MasyaAllah.

2. Marking 159 student's test. To be honest the overall results was not really convincing. :(

3. Preparation for my sister's wedding. I've been to KL from Penang almost every week. A little brother who loves his sister very much ( am I? )

4.The day that everyone is waiting for. Congratulation to my lovely sister Zalifatul Akmal Zaaba. Alhamdulillah everything went very smoothly. The solemnization was held in our home with Garden theme as her wish. The main event was held in Dewan Merak Kayangan, Jln Semarak KL. I wish I could invite all of you but InsyaAllah when my turn comes :P My mum and dad would be the happiest person on earth that day. I can see that. Alhamdulillah Allah granted me with a beautiful and understanding family. My little sister Nurshazwani Zaaba and my brother in law Mr Fadhil Hakim - u guys worked really hard! Thank you! To my new brother in law - Abg Airee, welcome to our family. InsyaAllah we can't wait for a good news soon :) Some pictures to share with.




K yong - Me - Eno

Sweet Couple isn't it?



And as usual the "Killer questions" will be prompted over and over again such as "You're next? , So dah ada? , when is your turn big guy?, Please call auntie if you want to know someone?, Anak uncle ada yang single! erkk! etc..... (no full stop)..... Big Grin from me. "InsyaAllah, sooner or later my quick answer". My mum always says the time will come when Allah granted. :) Kesian anak laki mama yang sorang ni kan?... 

5. Now I'm back to work.It is like never ending journey. InsyaAllah I am trying my very best to fulfill my responsibilities.  No pain No gain right?

6. Oh my condolences to MH370 family members and friends. May Allah give them His blessings. 

7. I need to get ready to meet my Deputy Dean in an hour. (Sempat lagi tu update Blog) :P Cheers Folks.

Get Ready




New semester is just around the corner
I was appointed to teach the programming course this coming semester.
Data structure n Programming Methods

Programming is not a new thing for me
Although I would say this is not my "niche" area but I am willing to try
Take it as a challenge :)

I just hope that students will ask if they don't understand
rather than sitting there quietly (assuming they understand).

I don't want to repeat back how I used to study programming
during my undergrad.
Because at the end of the day
the majority will only pass the exam
the majority don't know how to apply what they have learnt
the majority will set up in their mind that programming is difficult
and
the majority will let their juniors know that programming is the killer subject!

I want to change this perception or trend
I really want them to participate in class
or come and see me personally if they are still in baffle.
I want them to be confident
I want them to know what is the purposes of doing such thing

It is too early to judge
But based on the early indication (basic level programming exam)
the majority were at B level.
Not bad at all.

So lets target to at least B+ this time.
Mahatma Gandhi used to say "The future depends on what you do today"
InsyaAllah....
Wish me luck.

Selamat Tahun Baru 2014

Assalamulaikum....

Penuh bersawang!!! (Batoks...Bersin...)

When you start doing your work you need to concentrate to one. I remember in my Public speaking class during my undergraduate; Mr victor told us about "put first thing first". Yes I put the priority but seriously too much work to do until I can't even update my blog.... (konon bg alasan kan? )

Helping my colleague to organise an event with "orang asli" in Kampung Tangkai Cermin, Perak. I was so blessed having group of dedicated students. We worked even on Saturday and Sunday to ensure that our "Celik IT" modules at the best level. Guys, I hope I would be able to work with you again. Oh yes, we had really much fun in Kampung. I can see that lots of thing we can do to help these people. They are lacking of much of what we get in big city. I suggest if you could "try" and wear the same shoes like them. berani?

New year resolution? None! Celebration? None! I just stayed at home and tengok fireworks from the balcony. Nice! It was liked 30 minutes show. Non-stop whilst having my cup of green tea.

Oh yes, I went back to Kl to visit my parent. I miss my mum's cooking very much. Mommy's boy :D
Sempat pusing2 and minum2 with them in Kg Baru. We talked about so many things... life, ambition, good old days etc... Memang best lah.... And lots of thing to prepare in KL as well. Adalah macam2 family event :)

Preparation with new material.... Not really sure about lecture for the next semester but most probably "PROGRAMMING" will be the one! Was offered "ALGORITHM" paper as well but at the moment would prefer to focus on one. :) Hmmm.. sometime benda yang kita tak nak lah yang selalunya kita dapat... kan? Good luck lah to me! Yes.. Coding... Phd coding... and now coding again.... Hoh!

Conference paper: My supervisor did asked me about sending a conference paper. But now diam dulu sebab tak dapat ilham nak jawab apa.... ishk.... This is life anyway! Chill!

I remember quotes from Audrey Hepburn "The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters".

Makanya hidup ini indah. Kerana kita yang mencorakkan hari-hari yang kita lalui.... Next mission?

Biarlah rahsia.... :D

Syukran.... I am so pleased!

With my CSCAN group - Thank you for a lovely party Guys
Left- Danny, Dr Li, Dr Ingo, Olivier, Erwan, Najem, Hussain, Me, Ben, Ghasib
Seat- Wahid, Mahmood, Saad and Janny


Alhamdulillah...

After a long wait then it turns out to be good outcome!  I had passed my Viva-Voce.
Thank you so much to my family, supervisors. CSCAN colleagues and friends.
Guess what? I had live my life abroad since 2006. Even though I had a year break in 2008 but the separation period from my family and my country is what I could categorise as "sacrifice"!

To be honest, there are lots than you could imagine the hurdles that I have gone through within these periods of time. I am so pleased and thankful! This great journey taught me to become a better person. I have learnt to become more analytical and to think outside of the box!

Thank you so much everyone for a great support!

The party was held on Monday 17 June 2013. I really appreciate all the efforts by these people! One happy family at home. I am going to miss you guys so much! I'm going to miss the jokes and fun... :(

I am coming home... Yes... home!!! But I will be back again to this Land for another mission. Soon...

Next mission to be accomplished. InsyaAllah.

A friend used to tell me "Let it be.. Just follow the path"
InsyaAllah. I believe in God's will.

Will be back again soon.
Hibernation mode? Sighs...
