As a muslim, how do you get married in Malaysia? Especially in Selangor?

What are the procedures of getting married in Malaysia?

I had a look at the website of Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor and there seems to be a heck lot of processes that a couple needs to go through. Why the red tape? Why make it so difficult?

For those who have gone through this or about to go through this, share your thoughts below. It’d be interesting to have a discussion about this matter.

How to open up your own tuition centre or become a private tutor in Malaysia?

I’ve got a few questions that need answering. For those who know, please share yeah? Share your knowledge with the rest of us.

Who reads my blog?

Sometimes, I wonder how many people actually pay attention to my blog and who are these people.

It also scares me to death that there are a lot of professionals and intellectual people out there who may have stumbled upon this blog πŸ˜›

Entah apa dia orang fikir agaknya.

Apparently, after my blog came out in The Malay Mail (link), my dad also reads my blog now. Adoi.. sekarang kena banyak censorship la πŸ˜€

Pa, if you are reading this, may I redirect you to this entry here. << tekan sini πŸ˜‰

One thing for sure is that I try my best to voice out my ideas and thoughts. Kalau korang tak suka, peduli apa. Bukannya korang kenal aku pun πŸ˜‰

Anyway, just out of curiosity, do write in the comments section about who you are and where you come from.

Would you consider education/study loan as a bad debt?

What are bad debts? Well, refer to a previous entry on what I’d consider as a bad debt. Basically, when you take out a loan to purchase things that has no ability to yield anything towards your wealth-making journey, then that’s a bad debt. That’s my interpretation anyway.

Anyway, think about this situation. How about if you take out a loan to further your studies or skills? Would you consider that as a bad debt?

Now, let’s put a spin to that scenario. How about if you already have other qualifications and you are already working? Would the loan then qualify as a bad debt? For example, you already have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and you’d like to fund your MBA studies through study loans. What do you guys think?

Reason I’m asking is this. As a lot of you might already know, I want to become a pilot. Unless an airline can take me on, the only way I can become one is by funding the training myself.

If I stay here in Australia, I can work (assuming somebody will actually hire me) and pay my flight training on an ad-hoc basis. If I return to Malaysia however, I need to train on a full-time basis, thus coming to the need of having a huge lump sum to fund the training. The only way to get that huge sum of money is through financing. Now the million-dollar question is, am I willing to include a RM250,000 long-term loan on my balance sheet?

Oh, by the way, ditching the flying bug is definitely not an option that I’ll ever consider.

Islamic Financial Planning

I’m interested to learn more about Syariah Finance and Islamic Financial Planning. Not so much of making a career out of it or even issuing fatwa or anything but rather for the sake of knowing as well as maybe doing it on a part-time basis.

Do you guys know where to start? Perhaps good books to read, courses to do, people to speak to, and etc.

Apply First Aid Course & Barista Course

I went to a couple of cool courses in the past month. One was the “Apply First Aid” Course and the other was a “Barista” course.

1. Apply First Aid Course

Pretty good actually. They taught us how to do CPR on adults and babies, operate the defibrillator, and also how to treat some common medical emergencies.

Definitely a fun day!

Dude, can I have your assignment from last semester?

Baru-baru ini, aku terima satu permintaan yang teramatlah pelik. Kawan aku di universiti minta assignment Company Law aku dari semester lepas. Kononnya, nak buat rujukan (i.e. utk ambil jawapan laaaa) sebab dia buat subjek tu semester ni. Dia kata, soalan lebih kurang je.

“I want high marks for that subject”, kata dia.

Banyak cantik pakcik oi. Aku susah-susah buat kau senang-senang je nak salin jawapan? Kalau nak aku tolong boleh juga tapi ni nak ambil jawapan terus?

My Public Mutual Investment Updates (20.08.2009)

I had a look at my Public Mutual online just now and it seems like things are somewhat recovering.

I’m about 10% away from point of breakeven.

I find it rather hard to believe that it recovered rather quickly. If things can rise this quickly, I’m sure that things can go down again just as fast.
