I Pergi Bank 2.0

Side note : Actually this post has been in my draft for quite sometimes. Not sure why this draft yet to be published, (maybe I'm just been busy dealing with the earthlings. lol), but here it is. Why 2.0, because I have published one post about I went to the bank also before this.

-My friend once told me that everyday, God is actually trying to tell us something. We just need to thinks (ponder) and reflects back on all the signs or things that happened to us on the day, on daily basis.

Today (this is like 1 year ago?), I went to the bank because I need to pay for my loan which is I need to bank in the money. So I straight away go to the cdm and do the transaction like normal. After like 2 minutes I finished my transaction. But, I did noticed something weird, that during I'm banking in the money, I feel like someone is behind me waiting for me to finished and it's weird because the cdm besides me is vacant at that time. You know, instead of waiting for me to finished, why dont you just use the empty available machine there right?

And so, I was right. That person is actually waiting for me to finished. I was about to left the machine and he, he by the way is a bangladeshi (i think), were stopping me, with a lots of cash in his hand, and show me a piece of paper. The paper was written an account number, and he was actually trying to seek help to bank in the money that he was holding. Total money to be exact is RM 1700 (thats a lot what I'm trying to say here). I was a little bit sceptical and kinda afraid, you know some stranger seeking help from you instead of other people in the bank.

So, I said to that guy (age more like uncle), you do it yourself. I'll guide you - Something like that la. Now you touch the screen, select language, key in the account number, and so on. When I saw him putting the money into the cdm, I can see that his hand was trembling out of nervousness I guess. You know the feelings of not knowing how to do something and do it for the first time kind of thing. And at that moment, I feel some guilt inside me because initially I did not want to help and i was a little bit stern and not in a friendly manner at all because I was being cautious at the same time. However, I feel relief because I helped.

When the transaction completed, that guy took the receipt and said thank you to me with a wide smile on his face. I smiled back and said no worries and so, I left.

Seems simple, it just an everyday situation that occurs in this world. However, those situation really made me thinks throughout the day. Why, out of quite a numbers of people in the bank, I was the chosen one? I guess God is trying to give me chance to do good.

Kisah Penang Bridge International Marathon Aku

Ok lah aku cerita sikit lah experience aku join Penang bridge marathon ni. This year marked my 3rd year joining this penang bridge marathon. First time i join for 10km on 2017. At that time, aku cuma nak take picture atas jambatan je bukan nak lari sangat pun. Motif sangat kan. Tapi ok lah aku still finished the run before cut off time. Time ni handphone aku rosak sbb apa tak ingat tapi rosaklah. So terpaksa pakai handphone yg abang aku bagi kat mak aku. Pinjam. Tujuan handphone itu nak tangkap gambar sebenarnya. Dah kata tadi nak naik atas jambatan untuk tangkap gambar, apa kejadian kalau tiada handphone untuk tangkap gambar kan? And after marathon finished, i waited for the shop to open at quensbay mall, to buy a new handphone. Yes the struggle is real. Using someone else's phone is not cool. Sobs. Cing! New phone purchased!

Then, aku rasa motivated and inspired to try for half marathon 21km. Aku ni jenis suka cabar diri aku sendiri and bila time nak execute tu aku akan macam ah just go for it lah. Apa nak jadi jadi lah kind of thing. Because I know I can do it. And so, i registered for my first half marathon on 2018 which is last year. Everytime I started something, I always macam ok I will practice to run consistently, secara istiqamah gitew. TAPI semuanya dusta belaka. Tak pernah consistent. I. DID. NOT. PRACTICE. AT. ALL. Bahahhahha. But ada lah few times aku pergi jogging and joined a few fun run. So, when the marathon day, macam biasa me being me, i'll just go for it the kind belasah je lah attitude. Lol. Flag off pukul 3 pagi so kitorang pergi dalam 2 pagi something lah. Ya Allah tak tahu pulak nak masuk parking kat queensbay tu jem strawberry berry nak hoi. So almost 30-45 min jugaklah nak masuk parking tu and of course we were very late. Bayangkan kitorang tengah dok jem nak masuk paking ni, then dengar hon flag off tu and nampak orang dah start lari. Siot betul. Kitorang dah lah macam lambat lagi je nak masuk parking ni. And obviously ramai jugak yg akan start lambat jugak ni.  So bila dah parking tu, berlari-lari anaklah kami ke starting point, ye kena start from starting point tu to scan the timing dekat bip kita tu and memang time tu dah lambat giler kitorang start. Macam aku cakap aku memang tak practice langsung, baru start lari pun aku dah penat and rasa nak pengsan dan macam-macam lah perasaan time tu. Aku duk lari kejap jalan lari kejap jalan, pastu ada pakcik start lambat gak tapi dia memang lari lah, and sempat tegur aku, time ni aku tengah jalan, 'eh apa jalan ni lari lah, jauh lagi perjalanan ni dah lambat ni' kata beliau. Aku pun lari laju potong pakcik tu, pakcik tu kata 'eh laju pulak' pastu dah potong pakcik tu aku start jalan balik. AHHAHA. Pastu pakcik tu potong aku balik and suruh aku lari lagi. Sebab time tu baru dalam 2 or 3 km kot. And at that time dah macam started nak hujan dah rintik-rintik hujan. Pastu aku pun lari lah sikit-sikit, sebab marathon kan bukan walkathon. KahKah. Then suddenly hujan started to turun dengan lebatnya. It was pouring cats and dogs. Kilat guruh and perasaan gemuruh sume ada pakej. Time ni aku cam ah whatever lah, jalan je lah sebab nak lari memang dah takdak tenaga. Hujan lebat kot dah lah tak nampak jalan kasut penuh air seluar basah melecet abeh kakiku. Syok gak mandi hujan time tu. Ada 2 kali jugak aku nak terkencing aku kencing je sambil jalan tu, sebab kan tengah hujan lebat. BAHHAHAHHA. Along the way tu memang ramai yg stuck kat bawah jejantas, diorang stay kat jejantas sebab hujan memang lebat tiada belas kasihan punya. But aku teruskan jugak aku jalan je laju-laju. Time sampai dekat finishing line tu lebih skit dari cut off time so still eligible for medal. Well memandangkan aku start lambat, actually my timing not that bad lah considering hujan lebat itu pun adoi. But waktu nak ambik medal tu ada drama lain pulak. Aku pelik kenapa ramai sangat beratur nak ambil medal, like sangat ramai. Rupanya depa cancel 10km punya run atas sebab hujan (padahal time ni hujan dah tak lebat) and asked the 10km participants to straight away take the medal. Dah bercampur yg half marathon dengan 10 km punya queue bercampur aduk sbb aku tatau pergi beratur dekat 10km tu. Ye lah mana aku nak tahu depa cancel 10km punya run. By the way, 10km flag off 6.30 am, and half marathon punya cut off 6.30 am. Maknanya di sini sepatutnya, bila half marathon dah abeh cut off, 10 km baru start run lah. Sebenarnya nak amek medal half marathon tak perlu beratur pun, kena pergi dekat queue lain. Then bila sampai dekat kaunter nak ambil medal tu depa buat perangai tak nak bagi pulak sbb katanya dah lepas cut off. Kepala hotak berjambul betul. Padahal yg melambatkan tu sebab 10km punya orang and management pun hauk jugak tak reti nak manage the crowd. So yg Tak dapat medal for half marathon ni riot ah depan kaunter tuh. Weyh hujan lebat gilers kot. At least  we ran and finished the run during the bad weather. But the 10km participants did not even start the run but can entitled for the medal. Where is the logic still wanna talked about cut off time? Funny. And after the riot, haha, they finally distribute the medal. So, waktu ni handphone yg aku beli time penang bridge marathon last year, rosak! Masuk air hujan of course! So kejadian dan kisah begini yg menampakkan aku seperti seorang gadget geek yg menukar handphone every year. Wadehek sangat. 

And suddenly a few months later, I registered for half marathon for 2019 early bird registration some more. Clap. This time for real, well thats what i think and i hope. But as usual, aku pun tak tahu this year macam perasan busy sikit. Dah lah tak practices, any other fun run pun tak join. Aku cuma join KL New Year run je 10km. And thats all. Pastu bila dah sampai bulan november mula aku gelabah sebab tak praktis langsung. After aku balik dari Japan tu, aku start praktis run dekat spice after work. First day stamina aku ke lautan pacific aku run 1km like that and jalan 1km like that, total 2km. Second day, stamina aku semakin kembali ke jalan yg benar menemui tuannya yg sangat memerlukannya. Stamina wise good, aku ran about 4km then i stop because i hungry havent had dinner yet. Third day, aku balik kerja lambat, so tak praktis. Fourth day hujan pulak, and aku balik lambat jugak. The next day aku dah prepare nak pergi Krabi so tak praktis. So balik dari Krabi memang dah tak praktis lah sebab a few days later dah marathon day dah. Kahkah. Lawak apakah yg sedang aku cuba lakukan? Basically takyah campur tolak sebab memang 2 hari je total days yg aku praktis for half marathon. GILA. Oh aku malas nak cerita tentang ketiadaan elektrik kat rumah aku yg membuatkan peti ais aku, ah no i cannot it was so heartbreaking and smelly erk. Because of the no electric at my house, aku tidur dekat rumah Mak Pak aku kat Taiping lah. Maknanya kitorang kena bertolak dari rumah awal lah sebab nak parking tu karang jem strawberry berry and aku tak mahu dah flag off lambat. BUT we were late again. but not as late as we were last year lah. This time macam late dalam 15-20 min like that. The weather was good no raining at all eventhough we got baju hujan in our race kit. I managed to finished it before cut off time and got the medal without any drama and this year we also got finisher tshirt. Cool. This time handphone aku behaved well. Still standing strong. Lmao.

Panjang pulak story aku kali ni, ye lah 3 tahun punya cerita kan. Apa yg syok join marathon ni for me lah is dia punya dugaan waktu hang nak habiskan run tuh. Macam this 21 km kan, waktu kat atas jambatan dalam 5 km more to go tu hg dah memang kronik rasa nak give up dah weyh kaki sakit jari cekam, melecet and you name it. Itulah masanya yang kita kena push diri kita another level punya, mindset game playing strong this time. You wanna proceed or you wanna quit? Something like that. Waktu ni lah kepalahotak aku duk bermain-main kat dalam ruang legar otak tuh,'why am i doing this?' haha. But the moment hang sampai kat finishing line tu, fuh satu achievement and satisfaction feelings yg bahagia yg akan dirindui.

Ke Puncak Bukit Larut Ke Kita

Sebelum aku pergi jelajah and cerita pasal tempat orang, baik aku cerita keistimewaan tempat aku sendiri yakni Taiping the Heritage City also known as the Rain Town. Sebab Taiping ni selalu hujan and antara bandar paling lembap kat Malaysia ni, sebab tu dipanggil Rain Town. Dan antara tempat yang famous kat Taiping ni of course lah Bukit Larut @ Maxwell Hill. Aku dah banyak kali dah hiking kat Bukit Larut ni tapi sampai half way je aku putus asa and turun balik. Sampai lah suatu hari yang damai dan tenang, tetiba datang semangat untuk cuba menawan Bukit Larut. Lalu aku mengajak adik aku si Pipah dengan Nomi, "Jom esok Bukit Larut. Kali ni sampai puncak! ". Mereka yang pantang diajak, jom aje lah!

So malam tu kitorang prepare lah beli nugget, coklat and air untuk bekalan esok nak hiking. Esok paginya, siapkan bekal nugget and we're ready to go. Dalam pukul 7.45 camtu jugak sampai kat Bukit Larut sebab ada singgah isi minyak lah apa lah, and lepas parking kereta terus start mendaki. Kitorang hiking ikut trek jalan tar je sebab boleh jalan dengan santai, and tak payah risau pacat. Kahkah. Ada trek jalan hutan jugak tapi tak mampu lagi aku nak ikut jalan tuh sebab memang mencabar lutut betul. Lol!


Tengah jalan tu jumpa pulak air terjun memang rasa tenang je dengar bunyi air terjun tu. Rasa macam nak mandi. And sampai kat sini memang dah start rasa sejuk je. So kitorang stop jap,take a moment to enjoy and appreciate the nature and of course tangkap gambar!


Lepas lebih kurang 3 jam, kitorang sampai di puncak Bukit Larut! Memang penat tapi kepenatan yang best! Rasa penat yang kita akan rindu bila balik and tidur atas katil. Yes, itu yang aku rasa. Dari atas ni kitorang boleh nampak rumah kitorang! Padang lapangan terbang tekah sudah semestinya!



Sebelum nak sampai puncak tuh terjumpa pulak dengan kawan baru John from France. Bonjour! Then boleh pulak kitorang lepak kat atas puncak sekali, and syok dengar pengalaman dia travel merata. Inspired me in many ways. Lepas tu dia teruskan dengan hiking ke atas lagi ke Gunung Hijau, kitorang turun balik je. Nanti lah cuba tawan gunung tu pulak. He he he.


Ramai orang tangkap gambar kat sini. Terutama orang yang datang naik Jip. So kitorang pun nak jugak! Lol!


View dari jambatan goyang ni pun cantik jugak. Nampak bandar Taiping dengan mata burung. Gitew!


Selfie sikit. Sila abaikan eye bag, jerawat and muka penat. Haha!


I will come again definitely. Hiking ni best. View yang cantik dari atas puncak nih, memang berbaloi dengan penat yang kita dapat semasa mendaki.


Take a moment to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature.



Dalam sejam jugak lepak kat puncak and recharge balik energy, so time untuk turun pulak. Waktu naik tadi ambil masa dalam 3 jam jugak, tapi waktu turun ambil masa dalam 2 jam macam tu je. Waktu turun ni tak rasa penat sangat, tapi lutut and kaki memang sakit. Haha. Aku rasa naik turun ikut trek jalan tar ni dalam 26 km jugak rasanya. Rasanya lah, tak sure sangat. Tapi yang pasti ketinggian Bukit Larut ni dari paras laut adalah 1036m.

Definitely will come again! Tinggi pendakian, Luas pemandangan!

Muzium Taiping 3D Art !

Rasanya last aku pergi muzium Taiping waktu aku form 2 or form 3 kot. Yearsssss ago. Sebab wakil sekolah masuk pertandingan melukis dan mewarna rama-rama sempena pameran rama-rama yang diadakan oleh pihak muzium. Dan artwork aku kena display kot kat muzium selama beberapa jangka waktu sepanjang pameran rama-rama diadakan. Walaupun, saguhati sahaja. He He He.

Jadi kenapa tiba-tiba aku cakap pasal muzium ni?

Ok kejap. Haritu aku jumpa Gambit. Hensem nye lahai. Tapi tak sempat nak tangkap gambar. Isyh.

Ok berbalik kepada muzium. Actually hari tu aku nak pergi jogging kat Taman Tasik. So on the way nak pergi tu memang akan lalu kat muzium and tiba-tiba my adik nampak banner kat muzium memberitahu sekarang tengah berlangsung pameran art 3D. Menarik bukan? Jadi keesokan harinya, kitorang pun pergi ke muzium untuk mempelajari sejarah negeri Perak. Erk ok tipu. Sebenarnya nak pergi tangkap gambar je dengan 3D art yang akan berlansung sampai September ni je weyh! It was since September last year until September this year. Memang berbaloi dan best sebab yuran nak masuk cuma 2 Ringgit Malaysia. Yas saya ulang, cuma 2 Ringgit Malaysia!































So guys, tunggu apa lagi? Datanglah melawat Tepeng weyhh. 3D art ni sampai bulan september ni je weyh kat muzium ni! Berbaloi dengan harga tiket yang cuma 2 ringgit sahaja untuk warganegara Malaysia. Jom melawat Taiping! :D

Melaka La La La

Assalamualaikum

Ok last week seperti yang semua sudah sedia maklum, malaysia cuti umum sempena pertabalan agung. Cuti jatuh hari isnin, makanya rakyat malaysia mempunyai long weekend untuk diisi dengan aktiviti yang berfaedah. Berfaedah disini terpulang atas dasar pemahaman dan pemikiran individu masing-masing. Jadinya, aku bersama teman-teman sekerja aku 2 orang bercadang untuk pergi short trip ke Melaka. Dan seperti yang telah aku khabarkan pada post sebelum ini yang aku akan cuma pergi ke tempat yang aku belum pernah pergi lagi untuk lawatan. Tempat makan seperti coconut shake Klebang adalah trip berulang dan berkecuali kerana rate 4 bintang telah diberikan. Kah!

So sila lihat gambar sahaja dibawah bersama penerangan yang sehabis baik akan aku berikan untuk pengetahuan pembaca-pembaca yang budiman sekalian. Heh Heh Heh. Oh mahu aku tekankan disini, gambar tidak mengikut turutan aktiviti yang aku lakukan semasa di Melaka. Harap maklum. Moga bermanfaat jugak buat kalian disana. Boleh lah ambil idea kalau nak pergi trip ke Melaka. Combine sekali dengan post aku sebelum ni - Melaka Trip


Sampai je Melaka kitorang terus pergi makan dekat roti canai kayu arang for breakfast. Ramai gila orang. Roti canai dia dibakar atas dapur kayu arang. For me rasa dia ok je like normal roti canai. Tapi teh tarik dia takdak buih. Macam tak tarik pun. Haha. Jadi nora bagi 2.5 bintang.


Coconut Shake Klebang memang thorbaekkk. Aku bagi 4.5 bintang. Kalau rasa nak selesa tak serabut ramai orang, kena mai awai. Kedai dia bukak pukul 11 pagi. Memang wajib cuba. 



Yang ni pulak sebenarnya nak pergi tangkap gambar kat pasir-pasir tuh. Tapi tak tahu pulak kena jalan jauh bebenor. Kalau korang boleh nampak kat hujung jalan nih ada macam bukit-bukit pasir tuh kan, ha yang tu lah rasanya. Dah lah panas terik nak mampus. kalau nak pergi kena prepare bawak air, spek hitam, dan payung. Aku and my friends memang tak larat nak jalan, so kitorang tangkap gambar kat jalan batu-batu ni je lah. Lawa jugak kan. Hiks!



Ha, yang ni pantai klebang. Tangkap gambar lawaaa. Time kitorang pergi ada orang tengah photoshoot gambar kahwin. Boleh jugak kalau nak main layang-layang kat sini sebab angin bertiup dengan budi bahasa and ada jugak orang jual layang-layang kat sini. Kitorang datang sini saja lepak nak ambil gambar and nak buang masa sambil tunggu time nak check in hotel. Ngeh3.



Kalau datang Melaka of course lah kena pergi dekat bangunan-bangunan peninggalan sejarah kan. Ni salah satunya lah.



Kalau suka tempat tinggi and nak tengok view Melaka secara meluas boleh datang dekat The shore Sky Tower. Kalau nak naik atas ni kena bayar Ringgit Malaysia 25 seorang dewasa. Best lah view cantik and angin bertiup sepoi-sepoi bahasa nyaman and tenang je rasa. Tapi rasanya kalau pergi tengok sunset lagi marvellous. Lepas tu stay tengok night view perghhh lawa siot. Next time.



Kat sky tower jugak nih. Aku suka tangkap gambar dok bersila macam nih. Stylo je nampak. Please jangan muntah.



Sebelum balik kitorang singgah coconut shake klebang lagi tapau coconut shake 2 cup sorang. Dah lah murah sedap pulak tuh. Ringgit Malaysia 2.70 je weyh secawan. Queue panjang sebenarnya, tapi gambar nih selepas berapa minit tunggu baru kedepan sikit camnih. Yang beli semua stok beg plastik besar-besar and bercawan-cawan. Masyukkkkkk!


Actually ada a few lagi places yang kitorang pergi makan but tak ambil gambar sebab tak berapa nak memuaskan hati dari segi servis and dari segi rasa makanan itu sendiri. Mungkin tak kena dengan selera orang utara cam kitorang nih. Lol. Well whatever it is, aku still suka Melaka the way it is. Teringin nak pergi melawat sekolah lama. Tapi apakan daya tak berkesempatan. Maybe next time.

Ok itu je lah cerita Melaka La La La aku kali ni. Kemana lepas nih? Tungguuuuuu ecewahhh!

Ehem sekarang ni kena plan pusing Malaysia dululah. Ehem masalah ptptn lah nok. Hiks.

Kbai !

Melaka trip

I wanted to go to Malacca again since I really freaking missed the Klebang coconut shake. My friend had 3 cups of coconut shake at that time. Everyday must have coconut shake or else you feel something incomplete in your life. LOL! Last time I went to Malacca to attend Bella's wedding and I did not manage to go to some other places due to time constraint.

Places that I have already visited:

Malacca Strait Mosque

The mosque, front view



Ship museum

Inside of the museum. I would suggest to get the audio instruction as it will be a lot more interesting



River Cruise at Malacca River

Malacca river view from ship museum

Submarine museum


Aisyu and sam in front of the submarine museum



Taming Sari Tower

View from Taming Sari Tower

Hurm, what else yaa? I supposed to write about the trip on this blog the moment after the trip as the memory still strong at that time. Well I supposed. Too late babe. I did not include here where we ate because I TOTALLY FORGOT. Kah! It was last year la bro. Please understand.

And..! Recently me and my colleagues went to Malacca for a short trip. I just go to the places that I haven't go. So will blog about it later.Maybe tomorrow. Don't worry its not going to be next year. I guess. Erk!
