Dunia itu BULAT!

Hello readers,
(mcmla ade readers, blerghh!!)

Anda tahu dunia itu bulat?
Mestilah tahu kan, blaja geografi, sains, math, kimia, dll, mesti ckgu prnah ajr dunia itu bulat kan.

Tp, penekanan kt sini, bukanlah psl kebulatan bumi ini, tp kebenaran disebalik kata2, kita akn hadap apa shj yg telah kita buat. Let say, u take a dump on a spot, then u walk away. One day, for sure u will walk by that same spot. Only time will tell how quick or how long till u get back into that exactly same spot. Betul ke tidak agk2nya teori ni?

Secara bahasa mudahnya, ape aje yg kita dh buat, kita akn terima balasannya. Kalau baik, baiklah. Kalau xbaik, bersabarlah. Bezanya, cara anda tempuh that same spot.

Adekah anda akn drag another people?
Adekah anda akn just pass by dan biarkan berlalu?
Or anda akn bersihkan apa yg anda dh tinggalkan?

Fikirkan, apa yg telah anda lakukan, baik atau buruk?
Sanggup nk tempuh balik that spot??

Me Day - The Race

Lets get back to speedster story..

Still remember the tergolek2 n berpusing2 word? hold on just a little more.

U can pass this paragraph as it only contain details about the circuit.

So, I was back in my kart after Chau pass it back to me. Going on full attack mode! getting out for first corner, release the throttle a little and hard right. Back full throttle after kart stable and go full throttle for turn 2, and slightly hard left for turn 3 to touch the vertex point. then, straight ur handle and maintain near to the wall in turn 4 right side maintain throttle full. This is part where u should be very brave to cut corners and keep ur kart as near to the side as it is a very sharp two close corners. Next, release the throttle and get ready to have a smooth left turn 5. maintain mild throttle to prevent speed lost and get all the way to farthest right side of the track to regain full speed. Next turn 6 will be high speed right corner, don't even think to release 1mm on your throttle, keep full. try to attack vertex point again and get wide on the exit. but remember, turn 7 is an S turn with turn 8 and turn 7 is quite near to the end of turn 6, so here I do a hard late braking, but need to remember not to spin here, quite numbers of people spung on their braking. I did spung also on my first run. So, after clearing S turn for 7 & 8, full throttle and get wide to gain full speed until next turn 9. Here where the part I still didn't figure out on how to tackle. Hard braking will sure help to maintain car balance, but I kinda feel like losing speed entering turn 9 is not a good idea as turn 9 wasn't really a hard right after full speed before. But going mild on throttle also result into too much entering speed which bring to some drifting action happen, speed lost of course. Next turn 10, hairpin left side and there u can enter pit at the end of turn 10. Turn 11 is another right side hairpin and slow in fast out for turn 11 is a good idea as u will be in long straight until turn 1 again.

That's how I tried to maintain racing line and prevent speed lost or drift. It may not be the best practice as it is only my opinion as a first timer in real life racing.(not first timer in gaming obviously.haha) After done around 7 or 8 laps, I give sign to Chau to change driver but he asked me to keep going. No idea why, but as he refused, then I will enjoy more. HAH! I feel like I performed better in this last part and I saw people start to get back to office area rather than pit side and I figured the race will come to an end nearly. So, I keep passing several other driver while figuring out to tackle this track more.

Before entering turn 1, it was quite a long straight, so u will enter turn 1 in full speed. I locked on a driver in front me and managed to pass him from outside just before entering turn 1 with full speed. Entering turn 1, my kart misbehave. It understeer badly. Then, I saw front left tyre goes off and I stucked at the side of the track on the grass. The driver I passed before slow down and have a good laugh at me as I'm still trying to figure out what had happen. Following the driver, MY TYRE passed me!

hahahahahaha..then I had a very good laugh and some $#)'0%!"#`+>*!")'#%!

I was really enjoying myself until this happen. I will be recorded as retired maybe. The track staff arrive with his motorcycle to pick me up and he also gave me this weird look. wattahek happen to u man? I can read that from his face. We share laugh as he give me ride back to pit area. On my way to pit area, the checkered flag waved sign the end of race. I retired on last lap. Chau saw me coming riding a motorcycle and he asked me;

"What happen man?"
"My tayar tecabot?"
"Serious man, my tayar tercabot on turn 1, forced to retired"

Then, Kak Wati come and asked;

"Eh2, ape jadi?"
"Tayar tecabot kak!"

Good laugh thrown.

Chau added;

"Damn man, u were gaining positions. We were on 4th then suddenly went down to 5th, that's why I asked u what happen."

So that's why they refused to change driver. I was gaining a good lap time and positions. We were on 8th before I stepped in. Maybe I can get to 3rd if only my tyre didn't tecabot and I can finish my race. hahahahaha..still laughing until now.(now mean until this post was made)(and maybe days later)

I sat down and the news of my tayar tecabot already flew around. People see me and laugh, I knew it! haha. But I'm not ashamed as sure I had real invaluable time racing, only my kart gave up on me and cannot withstand anymore G's.hahaha. Not my fault. This made the day for everyone with good ending, tayar tercabot!

As I'm sitting down and rehydrating, heard the speaker call up for my team name. `Entahla kot` was given by Kak Wati. I thought it was about the accident so Kak Wati stepped up to the caller. Next, she came to me and spoke;

"Amir, u got 3rd best driver award! Nice one."

All I can think is about the accident and they are giving me award for entertaining everyone.haha..fine! Then the price giving ceremony held, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place was awarded with a plague for every driver. Only if my tyre didn't tercabot, then I can get that 3rd place.haha.

Then, award for fastest lap time.

"In 3rd place, with lap time 1:17 (not really sure the lap time as I'm not really focusing), we congratulate, AMIR!!" (applause)

Oh, my name! Alhamdulillah, I was awarded.hahaha. I stand up with a lag because I not really sure if its me that they call. Hardly to believe. With everyone congratulate me, I already feel like a winner. Not bad for first timer for sure yeah?

Until now, I can still imagine my tyre passed me at the side of the track.

Tergolek2 and bepusing2 je tayar tu....*sigh

Me Day

This story should be made yesterday but I was too tired.

Yesterday was really `me-day`. It all started from 00:00:00 29 March, until 11:59:59 29 March. The whole day was absolutely unforgotten. oh yeah, It was my mother`s birthday too. 

Hepi Beday Mak!!

1. Night owl
It was my last night shift. So, no sleep at office. Last day for John in my team.(John-the-know-everything-guy office mate). He got promoted. I beat him in pool 2 day straight.hahaha. He is my teacher at pool and I beat him.kepuasan. Working night shift was no problem for me at all as I`m already night owl.

2. Guitar pro wannabe
After get back from work yesterday, (I drove averagely 60 km/h all the way from office which hard to believe) I straight to get myself a nasi lemak from `bu`(pronounce as ibu in Indonesian) at the corner. Her nasi lemak is good by the way. While eating nasi lemak that morning, got reminder it was my mum`s beday. totally forgotten! I promise myself to sing a birthday song to her last time, so I get my guitar, googled for some chord and make a record, sent into family`s whatsapps group. Alhamdulillah mama enjoyed it.

3. Car enthusiasm
It all started a day before when someone in my car`s group posted on secondhand aftermarket part for my car. I was planning to buy something for my car anyway this month (a boost meter perhaps), but the deal was too good to refuse. Contacted the deal-guy and booked my item straight away. After having some sleep (3 hours maybe) I packed all needed item for the next event and drove to Sekolah Kebangsaan Rantau Panjang Klang where the meeting point is.

Odw to meeting point, I stopped at petronas to get myself an energy drink and some roti coklat. There, I met with another ver9 guy who happen to follow me into petronas to greet me. (lucky to be in subie`s community) He offered me another part for my car at very good price. After share numbers and a handshake, we both drove away. Texted him to consider his offer and will asked for other opinion about this.

Ok, back to rantau panjang story, I promise to meet with this guy at around 1, but it was 1 by time I drove into highway, so need some flooring to catch back lost time. Managed to get there but didn't even bother about time as already late. Meet with the guy and himself own a forester. Had a quick chat about car and grab my item, straight to Autobacs Klang Sentral. I remember that I promised to buy a car perfume for my cousin which can be only bought there. Autobacs is a good place to be lost in, but I was kinda rushing and busy texting so not really got great time to get myself lost there. While texting, my phone remind me to get back on road for next event. Maybe I'll come here again next time. Definitely.

4. Speedster
My company arrange this Go-kart Endurance Race 2015 and I quickly signed up my name. (although it was after deadline.haha) I remember first time I drove go-kart back in high school days. It was an accident.hahaha. long story cut short. I was kinda nervous to get into kart again. After some flooring from Klang to Shah Alam Stadium, managed to be there just about time. The adrenalin was already pumping in since morning so maybe that's why i get excited this whole day. Oh, maybe the energy drink before boosted up a little too :P

So, after some briefing about safety bla bla..20 minutes of testing session start. Oh man, this was the nervous point. Three drivers in my team and Kak Wati, not really a kart driver, also in. She refuse to race after testing session so it was me and Chau for all 90 minutes endurance race. Lets get back to testing session.

I was the third driver as Chau really do the leader thing and I am newbie for this. I got a three laps testing session. Everyone else was damn fast for sure! The moment I get in that kart adrenalin pumped up. Sure I was very slow in first lap, just to get to know the circuit and stepped more for 2nd and 3rd lap. Yeah, spung in both 2nd and 3rd lap.hahaha. But it was good spung actually..get to know the kart well. So, not really a good qualifying time. My team was in 12th place for starting grid.hahaha. Last place!

So, Chau decided to let me be the first driver for flying start lap. HAH! baru kenal siapa aku!haha
Green flag waved and I was all the way behind.hahaha. Damn they were fast! I need to have 10 minutes session before can make driver change. I was very slow compare to other in this 1st 10 minutes interval but managed to pass some driver. (They spung or accident happen actually, but let me keep myself cool here.hahaha) I tried not to spin and try not to lost lap time. Then, the pit was open and I was the first to get in.hahaha.

By the time I get into pit, I don't even bother to know our placing. Chau stepped in and he wanted to do around 5 to 10 laps before passing back to me. During this stop i get to see how other take their corners and learn some from their driving style. So, my 2nd session start and this time I tried to step less on brake and more to taking G's into action. Sure this time was faster than 1st session. Then, I decide to change driver again. Chau stepped in and now I wanted to know our placing. It was 8th with 2 laps behind from leaders.haha. My fastest lap time was around 1:29 and fastest lap time recorded at that point was 1:19. Wattahek, 10 seconds!! So I decided I will just get out again and have some fun. no need to try and beat other. yeah..really amir??

Ok, Chau pass the kart back to me. This time I decided to enjoy more, worry less. ATTACK MODE ON!! Adrenalin pump like crazy! late braking or no braking at all!! In this 3rd session I managed to figure out how this circuit work. all the braking point, flooring point, release point. Having extra G's to my body is no problem because the kart was indeed small and at worst, I will only spin. no tegolek2 or berpusing2. oh! remember this tergolek2 n berpusing2 word. good thing happen next.

I guess I will stop here for now. Will continue again for this 29th March post again very soon.

Adrenalin pumped like crazy man!

Salam Jumaat

Peringatan mudah sempena hari Jumaat ni

Bahawa seorang lelaki masuk masjid pada hari Jumaat, sementara Rasulullah saw sedang berkhutbah, lalu orang tersebut melangkahi orang banyak; Maka Rasulullah saw bersabda, “Duduklah! Kamu telah menyakiti (orang yang dilangkahi) dan datang terlambat.” [Sahih Ibnu Majah]

Kadang tu, kita pulok naik geram tgk org2 mcm ni. dhla dtg lmbt..Khatib tgh berkhutbah, selambe dek je dia melulu masok masjid nk jugak saf depan. mmgla bagos dpt saf penuhkan saf tu, tp klo smpi menyusahkan org lain, pikior le sikit yop.

“Apabila kamu berkata kepada teman mu, ‘Diamlah di hari Jumaat, imam sedang berkhutbah!’, maka kamu telah berbuat sia-sia.” 

[Sahih Ibnu Majah]

Ade pulok, yg smpi menolak bebudak yg tgh dduk. cmne la bebudok tu nk seronok dtg mesjid klo dh nk smyg pn kne tolak2 ke blakang. Cmne la nk lahirkan generasi terbilang gitu.haha

SubhanAllah, ini la perangai manusia kita ni.

Bace surah Kahfi le kejap moh!
