Top 10 in 2009 Calendar

I shouldve posted it earlier, at least before the tick tock at twelve of 1st of January 2010.

Here are, 10 things happenned to me in 2010.

10) A Level Result

The result of my A-Level, Examination of the year 2008. The first half of it was not bad. But in A2, i doubted my pass level. So scared. But this January, Mr Khor my Economics Lecturer said that I passed and can go through LLB. Alhamdulillah. Dont wanna repeat.

9) Strong Message.

I delivered a strong message to UMNO leaders ( esp: DS Najib Razak) due to his 'bow' to the group of people who against the Process of Learning and Teaching Maths and Science in English (PPSMI). Refer the transcript here:

http://afiq-mystoryline.blogspot.com/2009/08/ppsmi-kegilaan-pemansuhannya.html

The group wanted the govt to abolish this process ASAP!! Crazy! I said that in a Annual Essambly of UMNO Ampang. With some handout being distributed, I delivered my speech. Were they litsening? Yeah... Was the points taken to the higher level? Dont think so? Ironically, after that speech i have never called for a meeting. How funny was that. So should I say some nasty in the UMNO Essambly again? Though it was for my childs good? NO! Should I represent my members and attend the Essembly? NO! Should I criticise them? NO! Should I shut my big mouth up? YES!

Ha ha? Would I? Not attending the meeting / assembly can not stop me from saying what should it be. World is moving faster. Internet.... Using News Paper is out dated. Dare to Change!!

8) Shirt-off.

UMNO General Essambly. As soon as KJ's name intoduced as the new Youth Chief, I was in the PWTC put off my Corporate Shirt with the Putera UMNO Logo's on that shirt. I threw it into the nearest dustbin. Very Unlucky, couldnt see the others throwing shoes to KJ. I went back as soon the dustbin say thanks.

7) 10 Kg

Haha in Mei 2009 I started my diet. Took lesser rice, 3 times a week and do jogging every morning i hv no class. My 3weeks puasa was without rice. Now? I'm 70 Kg. Very happy and still work on it. Untill i achieved 65kg? InsyaAllah... :D

6) Jamuan Raya KCD

This was the time I really cant forget. KCD held a Jamuan Raya in Hotel Putra on the 27th Sept 2009. Tun Mahathir was coming with his beloved wife. I recite a seloka for Che Det in loghat Kedah, and apologize him if my accent is not good enough. After I done, Che Det called me and says "buleh pun cakap Kedah" with a smile.

I was incharged for the venue. Was so tired soing that. Not easy..... And I was glad, becoz All are happy :)

5) Akmar.

I made a new friend. A blogger. Not much can I say. May be later. In the year of 2010. Much more would be written about her. :D She, made me continue (a start?) my writing(blogging)... In English!! Thanx !

p/s and also do checking for my language hehehe

4) Comel's 4 A's

I was shocked when he told that he got 4As for his state trial. From there i kept more attention to him. But he only could provide the same result in the real exam. But its ok. At least a boy in Mr Aziz family would have a chance to go to a better school. Like his dad, the product of Sekolah Aminuddin Baki.

3) Dad's Operation

Dad has no more filter in his body. Refer to

http://afiq-mystoryline.blogspot.com/2009/06/ayah.html

I was really afraid if sth bad to be happened. I was not ready for that! Please God. Have Your pity on me.... :(

2) Raya in Kampung!!!

Hahaha after 7 years, finally dad agreed to have our Raya Puasa in Kampung. Best! Not only 1st Raya, but also the first Puasa. All Alang, Oteh, Mak ni went back.. All of them!! Both the first puasa and the first raya. What a Raya this year? Haha Alhamdulillah.

4 Days in Melaka, 3 days in Johor (Holiday and Visit Alang) and after that went back to KL.

In Melaka,

- Wake up at 5am, que up to the bath room.. ergg errgg
- make new friends
- learn about Maulud Nabi (Malam Raya)
- Tahlil Arwah for Atuk, Nenek, Moyang ( 1st Puasa)
- Takbir Raya in Chief Minister House
- Went to TS Muhyiddin Yassin Open House in Pagoh
- Pictures taken by Angah for all family. Its a big family.

Ayah, tahun depan Raya Melaka lagi kan? Qadha' 7 Tahun!! hahaha


1) Sarah.

Futsal 2009 - i Did It My Way II -

Salam Blogger

It seemed to be an expected outcome when both of my teams, had been setup for last two months preparing for this tournament claimed their success!

Under 15 Tournament organised by Dr.Ho Chee Kit- the manager of Blues FC. We have known each other for 4 years if I'm not mistaken.

10 am

It supposed to be eight of them, but this team played with one man down. They already used to it.

1) Firdaus (GK) (c)
2) Hazwan
3) Syafiq

8) Arif

I was assisted by Jiji Yunos, who also provide us some refreshment in the morning. Thanx.


Here are the chronology of the day. Enjoy them!!

1) 9 am. Waiting SP to be opened.

Still got time for some jokes? Kids..
Mee Hoon was provided by Jiji The River.

2) Both Teams Warming Up - 10am



3) And the first game, begun.

Ke_fu A, with orange shirt start the game first.

They won the first game 4-2 and the second game was goaless.

While Ke_fu B, in red lost the first game 1-8 and made a comeback to hit the opponent 3-0 in the second one.

Ke_Fu C, which is totally under my instruction won both of their game for group stage. Shah hitted the first goal in the second game while the captain, Ahmad stroke two goals to help the team came back from 2 goals down for the second game. In the second game, the opponent was Jerung FC B, the team which plays big tournaments and performed superbly. It was surprised that my boys could manage to do that.


The First Kick Off, Started

Arep with the shoot.



Some words, before they entered into the court.

Hazwan was over the moon with his effort! He scored a goal, with two assists. The team qualified for the second stage. Won 3-0.

3) In the knock-out stage, it was ver unlucky seing both Kefu B and C met in the same match. I decided to give up the match to both teams, now they decide what they gonna play, who's playing, what tactics. I was totally depart from my manager-ship!

I knew what the scoreline should be. Team C won as expected. They came for training, very rare excaping and absorbed all my words during the training. They knew what to do. 3-1.

4) Now, the game would be tougher. Quarter Final.

Ke_fu A vs Jerung B
Ke_fu B vs Jerung A

Both games played in the same court. After Ke_fu A finished, Ke_fu B is going to enter the court, playing with a favourite team, very well known in the Klang Valley.

Like before, nothing much i did for Ke_fu A. No instruction. They knew how to play. Though it was a very difficult tactics they are playing, they managed to win it. The 10 minutes ended with goaless. The penalty (spot kick) will decide. It should be but not yet. No saves by both goal keepers. And now is the sudden death. The referee toshed a coin, and if the side of the coin go for us, we will decide if we wanna take the kick or put or Goal Keeper(who saved none of the kick) into the goal post. I shouted. Choose for the kick!! Dont Play our GK. The coin? On our side. It supposed that any players could take the kick. But the ref made up his mind. The one player-which is Acap must take the kick.


Well, Acap had a very bad time of taking Spot Kick since he failed to hit the net for this kick in The Grand Final Milo- quarter final's game. Which if he did, RM2000 would be in their hands.

Now? All are nervous. Acap of course. As he refused to take the kick earlier, now he had to. And must strike it in. To end the curse. Ha ha ha....

And he scored! And you would wanted to imagine how happy he was. How relief the friends were.

Now the second game. On the shoulder of Team C players, they must beat Jerung FC A-the main team of Jerung FC. Btw, I put my faith on them. They had won 3rd place in Liga Sukan Komuniti DUN Bukit Antarabangsa, which was an open Tournament. Played with all men above their age. What was an under 15 Tournament for them? Huh?

But i didnt through those words to them. I didnt know. This time, I had my full faith to my brother-Comel.

"Ahmad and Arip play defence, Comel and Azal - Forward"

It was, a tough game. I believed! But Azal was performed, since the Liga Sukan Komuniti. Azal build a great combination with comel. Simple play, very confidence. Azal dribbled a player, and now only one player marked comel. This opponent tried to block Azal's shooting. Hah? Guess what? He was wrong, Azal passed the ball to Comel. Haha I'm not complementing my own brother but he is a very calm player. Once the ball received, he took some breath, look up to the GK. And a simple placing done it. Leading by a goal.

Who would believed? A goal and a goal and a goal and a goal. Its already FIVE!! That was really put the opponent in a high pressure. They couldnt take it. Their junior was defeated in penalty shoot-out and now their main team conceded five goals. 2 minutes left. They were keep trying. My players were too exciting, I really didnt like it. Haziq was shouting to the opponent as soon as the referee blew up the final wistle. And I knocked his head, warn him about his action.

5)Semi

The tireness still there but the organizer called for the semi final game. We must get prepared. Only five minutes break. I called the players to play just like they did in the quarter final. Same players brought in. Its my only mistake. Regardless their fitness, games they have been played, I should considered to bring in fresh legs into the court. They lost to RSP Bangsarian 1-4.

While the first team won above the Blues FC 1-0.

Both loser team in the Semi Final should play 3rd place. They did it again. Won 3rd place.





6) And the Final? Ke_fu Patriot A vs RSP Bangsar



They Drew without goal in the group stage. But in the final, no mercy! Acap again, a simple placing did turn the game into our side. 1-0




Actually, i did it the same way two years ago Adidas Friday Futsal Tournament under 17 2007. Sent three teams, two entered the semi's. Won 1 runner up and 2nd runner up. This was my 1st and 2nd batch of Ke_fu Patriot.



The Second Batch But the GK was from the first team.
Devide them so could have a balance team.


All of them.


Familiar with these faces?



.......They are now, Here.....







In Memories...

I DID IT... MY WAY..

The Day of 28th December



(I should have posted it last night but doing it in English drag me till late at night, too much concern of grammar ha ha ha)



I started the day at 7.30. Really shocked because i missed the Subuh prayer. The phone was out of battery. How miserable will today be? -Its really in my mind everytime i missed that chance, the chance that not all muslims take.

Futsal

It has been a long time since my last referee-ing. (I am a 3rd Class KLFA-Ref).Today was the futsal game. It should be 6 teams but luck is not always at your side. I could have refused to continue but

1) the need of some bucks to start the new year
2) the teams are geared up to kick off
3) It's the new ref jersey of Adidas (bought at Pasar Payang Terengganu) and new watch-B.U.M Eqpt (suggested by two girls nga nga ngaaa :p)

really couldnt make me start the engine and turn back.

With only 5 teams, i got to re-arrange the matches. Its a 10 round games and I have another thing caming up after this mini tournament. Afraid i couldnt make it.

I was so glad that i could handle the matches very well, though the sun directly strikes my eyes (face is my concern :D). The morning one should be the good shine perhaps.

I asked my players-ke_fu patriot to divide themselves into different teams. But this one team imported both of my players, Acap and Zharil. What made they so confident that these guys are gonna help their team to win? In the final they were beaten 1-2 in the penalty after a draw of 3-3.

Nothing much can i say, when the winning team take only one ke_fu player (the captain) and still could manage to defeat the favourite team. Responsibility and beliefs-what lead them to the gold. The Ke-fu player, Azlan believed it is his reponsibility to prove that he can play and to bring other non-favourite players to be on the podium! The other ke_fu players, also have faith in their members. No fear, nothing to lose, just play like they should play-simple game which theyve been practicing in trainings.

I don't take them play only to win, when the members do not perform very well they would be simply kicked out. The values of winning are when you are climbing up the stage with your true friends. Friends who always been with you all the time whenever you are down or you are in the middle of nowhere. The friend you have faith in.


Viva Palestina Appeal to The Egyption Embassy

A friend (again?which friend am i talking about?) texted me last night about these group of NGOs, collided as a solid identity- Viva Palestina Malaysia sending aids support to Palestinians.






(hahaha its not i dont wanna make any comments of this, but it will take too much in this posting to tell you about the chronology of this event. Therefore please do visit akmarr90.blogspot.com

She also delivered good points. :D )

Finished at 1.30 pm, i rode my bike and start wandering around with empty stomach.



The Mosque

After had a cendol pulut I - the favo dish, at Memanda and knowing Zuhur has arrived, I hit to The Masjid Darul Ehsan right after my 'breakfast'. (Or also known as TAMAN TAR Mosque- The witness of my 10kg's Calories Burnt! Kakaka)

Alhamdulillah, i performed my part. Its now for Him to decide if He wanna accept my prayer. Totally His right. Then I heard some noises, arguments which i couldnt hear very clear. I saw four men arguing about Syiah,Saidina Ali, and Muawiyyah. They were REALLY INTO that discussion. About the facts, and I heard that "yesterday, the ustaz said this is the history. So we should bla bla bla". Then one of them left. Maybe had no more interest in the topic. Haha...and three of them? Were continuing.

I walked to my "big" bike. (?) Thinking and smiling, if I could join them. If I would be in that circle. Arguing about The Sirah and Sunnah. Not politics, money, malaysian artists, gossipping. Hmmm.. I was, and slowly pulled out. Sometimes i do. Meet Ustaz Faizal (my former teacher in SR Agama) and talks about religious. Haha even though he usually meet me with political concerns. How could i separate from that image? The image of "afiq-umnos". And some friday nights, i'm having discussion with KCD's members. Religious input also would be part of the discussion.


After Asar

Reached home at 2.30, tried to avoid falling asleep. Hahaha sleep in the afternoon would affect my memory. So read something online and my untie called, asking if i could fetch her at 5.30pm. I was so tired but couldnt let her come back on her own by cab, fetching 3years old intanfrom her sis's house. Too much of an after-office-hour for a mother. And i decided no futsal this evening. She was happy. Intan was happy and was so noisy in the car. Hahaha.. "Along gemuk..Along Gemuk"

There's an opinion, or may be a sunnah which i'm not really sure. What are the relevance of haram performing most Solat Sunat after Asar? Only few are allowed. Some friend said it is time for us to go out and have some refreshment, preferably walks with family. Is it true? Tun Dr Mahathir does it. One of his officer said all of them have no rest after Asar. Either he mentioned or not about his plan for the day, they must be on standy mode to go out with him. Of course with his beloved wife. :)

So.. Soon after send Untie and Intan home, (haha their house is infront of mine) i went to the futsal court watching those guys playing. And my stomach couldnt take it, a cendol pulut was not enough for a day!! Haish.. Looked for my helmet, and went to Farzana ordered Mee Kung Fu.. I was surprised that Farzana changed its name. Its now "Al-Saj", an indian guy bought the restaurant. A lot of promotion. Beriyani Ayam etc- and for sure No Rice Thanks. :p

Luckily the kitchen maintained the same. All are mamak. But it is now part of my consideration to not have Teh Tarik KCD at Farzana anymore. It is just about the confidence. To eat in a non-muslim restaurant. duh?


Hmmm so my day went off with half of this posting written.

A friend (again?) is acting as my English teacher tonight, will be checking and correcting my errors in this posting. Hopefully the posting after this would change, to be the better of course.

~Ikhlas, afiQ

What Makes Muhammad Afiq?

Salam.

I was asked, what makes Muhammad Afiq? Since i am so negative-thinking, or u may say down to earth, i'm always wondering if people can easily get along with me.(what makes it so important as long as Allah loves me?). Some says about the skema of me, afraid of my angry-face (? haiyaa).

After my schoolship then i heard some rumors, about some girls, interested in me.(huh?) I then conclude that it may because of i was the Head Student. Yeah that post huh? The most popular post beside school's athletes. So its not me. The position does. To be the girl of a head student? Nothing to do with Muhammad Afiq.

This friend who i just knew about a month ago, delivered a different perspective of my thought. Asked:" Then, What Makes Muhammad Afiq? There must be some quality, inside you- what makes you a head student. Thats why you was there. Somebody found it. You may not realised."

The same goes with this story,

1) A cement mixer was asked what is he doing for living- answer "Cement Mixer"
2) A contractor setting up an aircond and claimed himself as an contractor
3) A man, setting up doors in a mosque. "When asked what do you do for living?"
He claimed "I bulid a mosque"

And it became so motivated to do simple things with a bigger picture in mind. Once you motivated(Keep you starts) you'll find the way of keeping its going - habits

So it is a good thing when we could get a different way of view to describe something, which would affects our conclusion.

So What makes Muhammad Afiq? Past Experiences I should say ;)

Thanks. Salam

Sibuk, Kemahuan, dan Hala Tuju.. Entah.....

Salam Bloggers. Dah lama tak menulis, dah dua raya tanpa berita. Kenapa agaknya?

Kesibukan memang satu alasan. Itu antara jalan paling selamat untuk keluar daripada satu persoalan, tanpa sedar ia hanya mengundang lebih persoalan. "Apa yang disibukkan?" Kalau mahu berikan sedikit kelapangan kepada sesuatu, kesibukan tak lagi menjadi alasan. Sama ada Mahu, atau tidak...

Tiga persoalan yang sering menjadi pertimbangan kehidupan.

1) Dimana kita sekarang
2) Mana halatuju kita
3) Bagaimana untuk ke sana?

Kita lupa sebelum hadir soalan pertama, kita perlu bertanya "Dari mana kita datang dan bagaimana kita berada di sini"

Persoalan yang tidak nampak penting tapi memberi makna kepada kata-kata seorang Ahli Sejarah

"Mereka yang tidak belajar dari Sejarah akan didera dengan mengulangi kesilapan lampaunya berkali-kali"

Toleh kebelakang untuk memperlajari kesilapan adalah mustahak, sebelum kita melangkah ke hadapan tanpa mengulangi kesilapan.

Berkait rapat dengan apa yang ingin dirungkaikan, pada mulanya blog ini dibuka hanya untuk berkongsi tentang kisah hidup penulis.

Namun seperti apa yang dilihat, ia sudah bercampur dengan hal berkaitan politik, walau sedikit. Rakan-rakan yang mengenali penulis, terutama dengan nama panggilan"afiq umno" tentu tak ralat dengan permasalahan ini. Blog ini adalah untuk penulis berkongsi kisah hidup seharian dan apa pengajarannya untuk masa hadapan.

Sekarang terkeliru. Atas tujuan apa penulis menulis. Tujuan blog dibuka.

"Blog" adalah hasil daripada perkataan Web Log yang disingkatkan. Dengan kata lain ia adalah buku Log di Laman Web. Buku Log boleh dirujuk sebagai 'Diari Seharian Seseorang'.

Mengapa menulis sekarang? Jika selama ini penulis melawat Blog-blog politik seperti Blog Datuk A Kadir Jasin, Nobisha, Che Det (dah pasti), dan Blog-blog yang dinaikkan bagi tujuan Politik semata-mata, baru-baru ini penulis diperkenalkan dengan seorang penulis blog yang menceritakan warna-warni kehidupannya. Menarik, padat dengan cerita dan tidak meleret. Sudah tentu beliau penulis yang bagus. Menggunakan bahasa Inggeris pula.

(Penulis tidak begitu hebat menulis dalam bahasa Inggeris. Bukan malu mencuba, cuma bila menulis sesuatu , penulis berfikir dalam bahasa melayu dan kemudian cuba terjemahkannya ke Bahasa Inggeris. Tunggang terbalik ayatnya.)

Bagaimana beliau sangat mudah menceritakan detik-detik indah warna warni kehidupan sehariannya? Sedangkan penulis sukar untuk berbuat demikian? Mungkin,

1) Kehidupan kita punya jalan berbeza. Hidup, darah daging penulis bersama politik dah sebati. Itu jalan yang ditempuhi sepanjang 21 tahun di muka bumi. Dia tentu menghadapi jalan cerita berbeza, yang menterjemahkan kehidupan sehariannya pada hari ini.

2) Apakah politik tiada warna warni? Sehingga tidak boleh dimasukkan ke dalam diari seharian? Adakah semestinya bercerita tentang jogging, futsal, kelas, TV dll?

Politik lebih penuh warna-warni. Tapi warna-warni belum tentu indah. Ia boleh jadi perit, seperti peritnya ia sekarang. Minda politik ini bermain setiap hari. Entah apa yang mampu hentikannya. Jika ia mampu dihentikan, mahukan penulis menghentikannya? Dan jalani kehidupan tanpa politik (yang akan mendapat reaksi pelik daripada kawan2 yang mengenali diri sebagai afiq umno)? Penulis pernah berjanji, walau bila politik sudah menjadi bosan dan bukan lagi pilihan kerjaya, politik sebenarnya bukanlah pilihan dari dulu kini dan sampai bila2. Ia adalah keperluan. Penulis harus sedar bukan semua orang terutama yang muda ambil peduli soal ini (walaupun tak semua patut berpolitik tetapi ambil tahu, dan sedikit kebimbangan mengenai apa yang berlaku) dan pada umur 21 bermacam pengalaman politik penulis lalui. Kadang kala terasa kepenatan.

Teringat kisah semasa Sekolah Menengah.

Dahulu semasa berada di SMKDAR, dipilih menjadi pemimpin adalah sesuatu yang perlu dipertimbangkan sehalusnya, kerana kegagalan bertanggungjawab ke atas kepimpinan, gagal melunaskan amanah akan mengheret kita ke golongan Munafik (apabila diberi amanah maka dipecahkan). Ya, tidak seperti pemimpin sekarang tidak perlu fikir panjang bila mengambil peranan sebagai pemimpin.

Kepenatan dan tekanan penulis lepaskan apabila pasukan koir sekolah mencari ahli bagi menjayakan Bulan Budi Bahasa peringkat Parlimen Ampang (Itu pun pada bulan Jun setelah banyak tugas kepimpinan diserahkan kepada Diana-mewarisi kepimpinan pelajar SMKDAR). Melalui koir, penulis berpeluang menghiburkan hati sendiri. Bercampur dengan pelajar biasa, tiada protokol, tak perlu risau tentang hierarki walaupun pelajar lain masih memandang penulis sebagai Ketua mereka. (Sampaikan nak mencari ketua koir pun cikgu masih mempertimbangkan penulis. Penulis menolak kerana tujuan penulis ke team koir untuk lepaskan tekanan)

Dan hari ini dengan beberapa tanggungjawab (role) di beberapa organisasi besar, apakah penyelesaian atau cara melepaskan tekanan? Mencari sedikit ruang bagi diri sendiri selain sibuk dengan tugasan di Kolej? Menulis jalan terbaik?

Tun Dr Mahathir menjadi penulis yang hebat sehingga umurnya 84 tahun dan beliau tidak menulis mengenai diri beliau. Beliau menulis perkara kritikal. Menganalisa dan mencari jawapan penyelesaian. Jika itu yang perlu penulis ikuti, itulah yang penulis sedang lakukan cuma mediumnya adalah melalui forum dan Web portal bukannya blogging.

Kerana berdasarkan maksud asal Blog-Web Log. Pada asalnya berperanan sebagai diari internet untuk dikongsi bersama pembaca. Cuma sesetengah menggunakannya untuk tujuan politik cyber, atau mungkin kebanyakannya.

Apa yang penulis bimbangkan, apabila gagal menetapkan hala tuju bagi sesuatu. Apa tujuan asalnya? Blog ini? Tiada tujuan jelas, ditambah dengan kelewatan untuk dikemaskini.

Apa pun, yang positifnya malam ini saya menulis. Terima kasih kepada kawan yang memberi inspirasi.

Berpolitik sepanjang hari bukanlah perkara yang menyeronokkan, namun tak dapat dielakkan penulis. Harapnya selepas ini blog ini akan lebih tersusun dan sedaya upaya cuba mengelakkan kecelaruan politik mempengaruhi sebarang penulisan di Blog ini, InsyaAllah.

Salam..
