Keeping up the momentum


Its been several days that I didn’t write. Indeed, the responsibility that we have today are waaaaaaay much more than the time that we have.

Oh, giving out reasons~~~

Now its my come back now that I literally force my self to get into my creep and started writing. With a cup of chiller coffee accompanying me, hopefully I’ll get much inspiration in this beautiful afternoon.

To pen down something meaningful enough in my life, inshaAllah.

Personality: Peaceful Phlegmatic

This is a topic that I love most! Other than Body Language, of course.

One tip that I learn for improving one’s writing skills is to write about one self and to write about the topic that matters to the writer. And this topic matters to me. =D


So what is temperament? It means ‘Perangai’ if I were to translate it into Malay Language. It relates closely to the personality of an individual, the way they act and react to events. I learn about temperament mostly out of reading online articles, from the iDISC book and Florence Littauer’s Personality Plus. Of all reference that I’ve gone through, I found out Littauer’s piece of work is the best and easiest material to understand and to be practiced by me.

The history started as early as Socrates era, the study of human personality. Socrates, being a physician, one day wonders why is it he deals with humans and yet, the attitude of each patients varies. From there he made some studies about their physical appearance. He founds out some similarities in some of his patients who share similar attributes. From there Socrates categorised his patient into four groups according to the colours of human’s body parts, namely

  • Choleric
  • Sanguine
  • Melancholic
  • Phlegmatic

Being Productive

And today I am going to talk about my self, yes, my very own self. Being a phlegmatic person, I am very productive in a very relaxed surroundings. Whenever I found a hectic surroundings, I will feel pressurised and I tend to procrastinate there upon. Thats how I cope with stress, I guess… Of which is not really good, I believe. How do I overcome it, then?

Firstly, I would look for a Choleric person who love High Pressure. I will do my best to work with them. Then, I will let them lead the way, clear off the pathway towards success and I will obediently follows from their back and directs them moving towards My direction. In order to do this, however, I have to make sure we do have similar destination to reach at.

I will also make sure that I have ample space to work things out my way. I tend to delegate tasks and get the least demanding job in my to do list. This does not work all the time but I managed to get most of the tasks required from me done in a breeze. So, I will be stress free and become more productive! That’s how I deal with my self when it come to becoming Productive.

Global Peace Maker

My biggest strength, thanks to my Phlegmatic attribute, is that I am very patience. I can withstand anger and difficult situation and act as cool as I can even though inside I am having a hurricane and storm (er… what is this suppose to mean?). Well, thanks to this I manage to deal with almost everyone. No matter how annoying that person would be, I’d just control myself and deal with them. And what happen next? Well, if I’m burn out because of this interaction, I’d just get to my own creep and get myself relaxed.

I don’t fancy debating or getting involved in such a provocative situation. Thus, I avoid that situation a lot. And whenever I found there might be an upheaval, I mean, an undesirable condition take place, I will make sure that I become the peaceful agent. Try to cool things down and make everyone feel happy. I’m always more than happy to make everyone gets along well. And there are time I know trying to be a peace maker seems to much of a work. When that time comes, I’ll just pass it off and walk away. Too much of a job to be done is no good for me.

Yeah, thats a lil bit about a Phlegmatic person. I’ll be talking more about Personality, about Choleric, Sanguine and Melancholic as well. And how to deal with them.

So, stay tuned!

Today I have made an achievement~

That is I’ve gone through the motorcycle lane at the Kajang Exit Tol. What an experience!

Well, that is just to share my experience this morning. I shall continue talking about the topic I’ve chosen today.


In my own definition, productivity means the ability of a person (I’d say my ability) to produce a result or outcome from a certain job or task the person is doing. One is productive to me when they sit in the office and he or she managed to complete the task given to him or her at the time he or she is given to complete the task. It could be also a student who do his study and produces a note at the end of his studying session and next, he manage to do the questions in the workbook given to him. So, productivity to me simply means the ability of me to complete my tasks (yes, there are a lot of it!)


One of the best way to ensure constant productivity is that to have a To Do List at your desk. A To Do List in your office or you school should be differentiate with your daily life to do list. This is how I made it and I found that it really help for me to focus on what I have to do at work and at home.

Perhaps some feels like doing it all together, which means having all your Daily To Do List combined with your Office or School To Do List would really help you motivated to be productive. I’d say whatever works with you it works. So long you are productive with the method you used, you are good to face the day and the World. =D

Alrighty! That’s it for today~~~

Depression, anyone?

So life is continued on this beautiful day. I had a nice day today, sent my wife to a course for Little Caliph (LC) kindergarden and had my Double Shot Caramel Capp here in Gloria Jean’s (GJ) Kerinchi and surfing the net at the same time. A newly opened outlet. Alhamdulillah, I got to know the owner is a Malay Muslim and as far as I’m concerned the majority of the GJ franchiser in Malaysia are Malay Muslims. We do have alternative for good coffee, so, please boycott the lady in green outlet. *smirk*

Many things have gone through my mind. And I decided that i should write about how…. to overcome depression. I guess.


Overcoming Depression: My Version

Well, its not a topic that many are capable of comprehending. As many people went through depression without realising that they are actually depressed. For this very reason, many burst out when things go beyond their control and they just went mad.

Well, this topic that I brought up is because of an incident that took place in Bangi, where a father who was unemployed for about a year, lived under depression and burst out by slaughtering his daughters. 2 was critically injured and his youngest daughter died. May Allah SWT rewards the young lady with Jannah, and May Allah SWT forgive the father’s sin.

Read here.

Many theories from many people went out. Perhaps, due to the economical challenge, may be because of the living cost that is spiking nowadays, may be because of yada yada, one are prone to being depressed in this modern days. No only the adults, the young ones are prone to depression as well. Its just the degree of bursting out differs from one another. Oh, I’ve read news report of a 12 years old girl hang herself because she didn’t get straight A’s for her UPSR. That is so sad, because she have been depressed for so long that she burst out resorting to taking her life away. A healthy mind person would have not been so depressed for having such result, from my humble opinion.

Oh well, let me start talking about how to overcome them. The causes are too many to be stated here. Go hit the keyboard and start googling about depression and its causes. Read up all the medical journals, You’ll know the answer to the Question ‘WHY’ are they depressed. I’m just sharing my own version of overcoming Depression, from my Own Experience. *smile*

Yes, I was there and I am coming out of it.

1. Acknowledge

The biggest challenge for a depressed person is to admit that they are depressed. At many instances the depressed person are not aware of their depression, thus, the denial. So long the person denies the depression, so long that person would be running away from it. Running away from a situation is not helping at all. Face it, the situation will eventually pass by.

I first found out that I was depressed when I noticed that I was unable to share my feelings to my friends and family. I started to feel I want to go far away from where I am, start afresh and meet new people. I want to talk to strangers and forget my old life. And it doesn’t help. I just have that kind of feeling and thought brooding in me everyday.

During that period, I woke up and started to think ‘Why do I have to face this? All of these??’. And I do not know the answer to that. I started to sit on my own, secluded my self to a corner of my rented house and do my own activities. Mostly reminiscing my old happy kids life. Beautiful aye?

Then, I just knew it something is not right somewhere. I was in UNSW when I was depressed. Every time I passed by the Student Help Center, there is a call within my heart. Yearning to be heard of, telling myself I need to talk to someone. And there I went, on one fine day, to let out my heart. I cried in front of a Counsellor and I just knew it that I am depressed and it took a lot of strength and courage to actually burst my feeling and thoughts out to the Counsellor.

And you know what? Writing this post about depression and about myself, is a part of the plan on coming out of depression. Alhamdulillah, I am capable of acknowledging my self for the challenge and experience I had previously. Self acceptance is VERY VERY IMPORTANT in this process of coming out of depression. At least, I know it works for me. *smile*

2. Get Help

One would need to climb out of the valley of darkness. On their own limbs, on their own strength, one their own will. Yes, others could assist, others could help to shed some lights and show one the path towards freeing one self of depression. Yet, the reason why one are still living haunted by depression is because One DID NOT ALLOW ONE SELF TO GET SOME HELP. Yes. They refuse any help from anywhere and anyone.

A depressed person tend to think that ‘I get this’, ‘Everything is under my control’, ‘I know what I’ve got to do’ and so on. However, without they realising it, they actually are circling around their thoughts when they started to think only them have the solution. In many instances, they make decision on their own while they are having clouds and mist and fogs in their mind. Seriously. One thing led to another, one event causes another to happen, more decision seems to add more fuel towards the fire of depression in one self.

Many big decisions in my life are affected by the depression I had. Withdrawing my studies from UNSW, getting into MAHSA College and withdrawing from it, starting a company with a partner and deciding to being self employed in the early career of my life, all of these events cost me a HUGE investment of my money, time and energy. And I learn A LOT from it. Yes, I choose to look at them as an investment that makes me a better me, that helps me to overcome the depression that I had. And Alhamdulillah, as time passed by I saw solutions and more way out.

My life is getting better, Alhamdulillah. Thanks to my family, Mama and Ayah (Daddy) for being there when I call out for help. Thanks to my siblings who shows undivided support when I was at the bottom of my life. Thanks to all Ikhwah for simply being there and share your thoughts when I ask about anything, Thank You for everyone who are in my life now. You are my resources, You are my strength to face the days and may Allah Bless your life for all the good deeds you gave to me. =D

One will need to seek help for overcoming depression. If any of you who are reading this know a friend of yours are depressed, or have some sort of symptoms showing that they are depressed, do offer a helping hand to them. They need it. And they just need someone to show them the way out. And remember, the process of lending your hands to them are not like eating grapes and definitely a piece of cake! A depressed person, they are very delicate and you have to handle that person with car. TLC. Tender Loving and Care. =)

3. Submit

One submission to Allah SWT, the creator of the universe is very helpful. Bowing your head to Him makes you realise, things happen for a reason. There are Wisdoms behind all occurrences. So long one believe in Allah, believe in the Greater Power that Creates the Universe, so long one will have faith and will keep moving forward. When no one is there, Allah is very close to you. He hear your thoughts, He listen to your rant, He understands you more than you understand yourself. Thus, your submission to His Will and His Power and His Wisdom, it really helps you to move forward.

There are many instances that I decided to do something stupid and out of mind. Alhamdulillah, since my early days I’ve been thought of the importance of Solat (Prayer) and the importance of Zikrullah (The Remembrance of Allah). Mama and Ayah are not Ustazah and Ustaz (Religious teacher). They just want their kids have a basic foundation of Islam, thus, teaching us all the basic stuff about Islam. Things they are not capable to teach me, such as Mengaji Quran (reading the quran well), they sent me to learn from an Ustaz and Ustazah. Holding dearly to those principles thought in my early days, it appears to be very helpful nowadays. =D

Many people lose faith, lose hope of life, because they made themselves as the Rabb, the Helper to themselves. Everything is on their own. They fail to realise about the Bigger Power, The Ultimate Creator that creates things and occurrences for reasons. At time, uncomprehend-able. And after sometime, the wisdom are well understood. Thus, if one decides not to submit to the Will of Allah, they are prone to being trapped in the abyss of depression.

Let me hear it out from you!

Alrighty, Thats it! 3 points on how to overcome depression, my own version. If I were to talk about the technical part of overcoming it, such as doing calisthenics workout to burn off excess cortisol hormones and such and such, that would be very lengthy. And I believe its not really practical to everyone as every soul differs from one another. I’d prefer to talk about the main Ideas on how to overcome depression and these are the points that I’ve been practicing so far. If any of you, my readers, have some opinion about this matter, you are most welcome to share your thoughts with me.

Perhaps any of you have some questions about it, I may offer some answers to you. No, I am not an expert nor a doctor that can cure depression. I’m just a person who experienced depression and came out of it, and I would like to offer my hands to help others to understand it as well. Be it to help your friend or to help yourself directly. =D

Talk to you soon!

Politics in Malaysia…

…is like a playground with full of enthusiastic players in it as well as bystanders. The playground is filled with energy and the bystanders are laughing looking at many scene that took place in that playground. No doubts, there are scene that makes one felt like throwing up, there are scene that makes people feel bad, there are scene that makes people awed for a while and back to feeling ‘What a fool of me to really believe things are as such!’.

One out of many scenes that we have in the political arena of this beloved country Malaysia is the one that took place just recently. Mr Raf calls it ‘The Kajang Move: Towards the Conquest of Putrajaya’ (I make up my mind so that it sounds like a movie kinda worth to watch). When the ADUN of Kajang from PKR step down from his position, many rumours took place. For instance, there are bickering between PKR members (as if its a secret previously…. duh…), Dato Seri (DS) Anwar Ibrahim is going to be the Menteri Besar (MB) so that he could prove to the people if he can a State exceptionally, why is it not possible for him to do the same for the Country? (*stare*) First it was Khalid Ibrahim that denies it, whereas in the press statement he was the one who announce that DS Anwar Ibrahim is taking that seats.

Speaking like a snake, aye?

Perhaps what was reported in The Star was denied by KI, later on by DS Anwar, on the point that DS Anwar is going to get that Kajang seats in order for him to become the MB? The thing left is for us to wait and see, will the Move really sounds like the rumours that are filling the air right now (can you actually smell the kinda stinky air here?) or will it be something else? I wonder…

I wish not to drag this thing further. All I can say is that I have a vision. In my vision I saw the people did the right thing, to vote for the best leader. A once promising leader of the world, today he could be as low as a pauper. So, why should we clinging too much to the past (read: old timer politician) when what we could have done is look forward and work together with the young promising leaders?

Personally, I believe that a promising leader is a leader who upheld Islam as the greatest and non others or anything that are higher than Islam. Think about it.


p/s: I am disciplining myself to post a post daily. =D

Burn more calories in less time

This is how I am going to get back my 65kg ideal body weight.

I am currently weighing at 74kg


Surpass the Limit


In order to cut fat, you must burn more calories than you consume. However, many times the calories we burn from exercise just isn’t enough. This is where the after-burn effect comes in.

Last week I was given the responsibility as AMPACoordinator for AMPAC Bandar Baru Bangi Center. This responsibility comes at a time which I thought pretty challenging, if not very, considering on my financial and life status.

Firstly, probably I am going to have my role as the Jawatankuasa Latihan dan Kepimpinan (JKLK) of PEMBINA continued for another 2 years.This responsibility requires me to attend to the needs of the oragnisations as well as the members from all around Malaysia. I have been holding the position for almost 2 years and from my observation, plenty of my KPI was not achieved. I could have come up with many reasons for that, yet, I decided to take 100% responsibility towards it.

However, as time passed by, I have a feeling that I become more dull on maneuvering the position. The morale was low and I wish I could have done better, I wish I could gain back the spirit that I have during the early days of taking the responsibility as JKLK PEMBINA. Today it feels just so far from me. Since I am now an AMPACoordinator and I have to put more energy and time invested here in AMPAC, I saw a bleak future for me being with Jawatankuasa Pusat (JKP) PEMBINA.

Secondly, I’m just married and I am doing my best to stabilise my family condition. Not that we are living in a poor condition. Its because of my income is just enough to maintain our life. Living in Kuala Lumpur appears to be much more challenging than where I have been living so far. Some more, now I have to sustain a living for 2 persons, not only or myself anymore. I know that I have to do something to gain more. And I am kinda in a dilemma. To fully focus on what I am doing best right now, that is pouring 100% of my time and energy investment with AMPAC, or to look for something else to be done.

Yes, I know I have to be grateful and content to what I have right now. I really know that. The thing left for me is to Walk the Talk, to practice what I believe. There are times when I felt so cornered that I resorted to mood swings. Well, when this happen, I myself feel sorry for the person who are at my surroundings at that time. I mean no harm, its just that I just feel like to relinquish the burden by doing as I wish. Man, this gotta stop before I really kill someone (of which, my self. huhu)

Mainly all I can say about having this responsibility as an AMPACoordinator is that I saw a room for improvement, many lessons and experiences to be gained. May Allah give me strength to push my self to the limit, to grind my mind and to harden my soul in order to become a real fighter, a real Mujahid.

Cause no diamond is made without High Pressure and High Temperature condition. That is what also required to give birth to a high quality men.

Let this verse from the Quran motivates me to strive harder and be patient.


وَلَا تَهِنُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ
“Dan janganlah kamu merasa lemah, dan janganlah kamu berdukacita, padahal kamulah orang-orang yang tertinggi jika kamu orang-orang yang beriman” (Ali-Imran : 139)
