New Life

Life begin at 40 so they say. Yes, I turned 40 last April. Been meaning to blog about it but life was in the way. So many things happened from early of this year (my last post) until today.

For starter, I have a daughter now. Which mean my time are now divided for both my son and daughter. Both are handful. I think it’s because the name that my wife and I choose. We choose Mohamed Thaqif because it means “clever”, “understand easy” and we want him to have Prophet Mohammad’s virtues. We choose Nayla Medina because it means “winner”, “go-getter”, “gracious”, “charitable” and the city of Medina where Prophet Mohammad expand his teaching of Islam. Good name and easy to write on Immigration form when entering a county for vacation.

I’m also venturing into new territory, one that’s so new to me. I’m trying to get out from the normal eight to five routine so I could spend more time with my children. Funny that I read this kind statement coming from a mommy post and seldom from a daddy post. But then again, there’s few of us dad who write blog do we now. Anyway, you’ll be reading about my new venture of mine in this blog also.

Until then.


The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
