I wanna be like them too

For the past few days, I have been seeing these videos some of friends share on Facebook.

O really wanted to watch them but there was always something that stopped me.

Only today did I manage to watch these videos.

I don't know how to describe my feelings after watching the first video about Wardina. It struck me to think and think and think up until now, at 3 am in the morning.

It was around 6 something pm when I was preparing for Iftar and I took a quick breather and sit in front of my laptop and browse through my news feed when I suddenly saw these videos.

I played and watched it and half way through, there were suddenly tears in my eyes. I immediately pulled myself together because I didn't wanna be seen with tears in front of my sisters who were all here today for Iftar together.

I could relate to all the stories shared by the three personalities. There are so much that I've been missing out in life. Too much worldly stuffs have been going on in my mind and in my life all this while.

And it scares me. It truly scares me. There were so many things which I shouldn't have done but I did. I could relate to the stories they shared in the videos and I found the similarities with them. The mistakes I made, all the sins I committed, the solah I missed!

Ya Allah! The superficial happiness and joy I was and have always been after. It will never end. I wish I could tell you all the things I did before but I am too ashamed of my self. I should be ashamed. I've been wrong with many people, my parents, my family, my friends, and most importantly, with ALLAH. Malu dengan ALLAH. Ya Allah!

But, like what Wardina said in the video, I don't wanna be among the people who will NEVER, NEVER EVER be shown the right path. I don't want to continually be IGNORANT and LOST.

But it's easily said than done. This is what scares me. I am afraid I may not be strong enough and I falter along the way. I don't wanna be the same person I am now or I was before. I want to be a BETTER person like them too.

But how do I begin?

Am I going to be as lucky as them who are now shown the right path?

I need the strength and I need the support too.

Nevertheless, I believe every single one of us can change. I can change. Change for the better. I will not say time will tell and determine when I will change.It has to start now. I need a strong will power to change. It's probably NOW or NEVER.

One step at time, Amir. One step at a time!

My very own bundle shop :)

I always love Junkyard Sales/ Car boot sales/ Flea market or whatever you call it. Or even bundle, as it is famously known here in Malaysia. 

Some people may not like it due to the fact that they are selling some used stuffs or some no-longer-wanted possessions and tend to go euuuw at it. I once thought the same too. I find it kinda funny and strange to be buying some other people's stuffs.

But now, I find it really interesting because I don't see any harm or reason not to buy these secondhand items and goods especially if they are still in a good condition. In fact, you can sometimes find some really interesting items you've always wanted at a really affordable price.

When I was at Urbanscapes last month, I saw lots of vendors selling secondhand goods and I was thinking to myself that it would be really interesting if I get to open a booth or a stall selling my stuffs I wanna let go. This is because I have lots of things to let go especially my clothes. *One of the many reasons is I cannot fit into them anymore. Sigh*

All of them are still in good condition and some of them are used only for a few times.

There are Topman (which used to be my favorite brand. I will write more of that in the next pos), Zara, Guess, Padini and a few others. My sister also has lots of things to let go. So, I was thinking that It would be really nice if I could open a booth selling all of these goods.

But then I wonder, where would it be? Hahaha

There are some daily night market and weekly flea market here in Ipoh and I am considering of opening a booth there. Interesting kan? Nay? Heeee

I also had the idea of just selling off all of these clothes to my cousin who happens to have a bundle store recently opened here in Ipoh.

Am still contemplating because I don't see any reason of keeping all of these clothes anymore. I have very limited space in the closet and I now have no space to put my clothes anymore. T_T'''

I am gonna share pictures of the things I wanna let go here in my blog in the next post.

If anyone of you who happens to read my blog and is interested in any of the stuffs I am letting go, you can just drop a comment in the post. I promise the pictures will be up by Monday next week.

See y'all next week with all the pictures because I am going back home tomorrow! Yeay!


p/s: I hope it is not too late to wish everyone who is fasting, Happy Fasting and have a blessed Ramadhan!

Value of Money

Sometimes all it takes for somebody to really understand the value of money is to experience the life of people who are living in poverty and such devastation of life and, in fact some who live below the poverty level.

I must admit that I sometimes live life like there's no tomorrow.

Without even seriously thinking, I sometimes spend money like it grows on tree.They don't.

I have so many blessings and I realize how fortunate I am to have the life I live now. Therefore, I should never take anything for granted. 

Everyone just gotta see more of the other side of life cos you'll never know the possibilities of what our life could be. We don't wanna end up regretting what we do, do we?

We must really understand the value of money and hard work.

I myself must learn to value and appreciate more of what I have.

50cents may seem so small to me and you and you and you, but it means so much to somebody  out there.

I hope I will constantly be reminded of this. InsyaAllah.
