In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

     Everyday, it takes around 15 minutes for me to walk to the office building due to the expensive parking fee. Well, I take that as my daily exercise; 30 minutes per day. Quite healthy eh? But still, there won't be much changes for someone as skinny as me. At least, I won’t be sleepy for the whole day. LOL to that. (Now I talk like some computer geeks or mIRC nerds )

     Familiar with Damansara? Nay for me, 'cause you know, Damansara is like a place for Beverly Hills kind of people and it's quite far from my home and the university. Why would I go there when the parking fees are soooooo expensive???? Except for Tesco & The Curve, where I park my car every day. Lol to that again peeps. (I'm not going to install mIRC  )

     15 minutes of walk is not just good for your physical health, but sometimes it sharpens your brain, at least for those who like to think based from observations.

all the way to the office

c0ol. Still under construction

this is where I work

     Throughout these 15 minutes, the buildings around here, I say modern compare to those at the central KL. The concepts used for some buildings are weird, but somehow are unique. You won’t find any of this around KL for sure. Obviously, it must be WAY EXPENSIVE.

     As for the cars, Porsche Cayenne is quite common here. Seriously. Merce, BMs and quite a number of Sciroccos too. You wanna show off your fully modified turbo charged Satria Neo or perhaps the latest Neo GTi, this is not the place. Walk away dude, or else ya gonna get smoked.

this is rare. around 7.40 a.m. where have all the cars gone? clearly KL folks prefer to get caught in traffic jam rather than waking up early. lol

all the best guys

     Tall buildings, mega malls, well designed house, superb cars. I see no end to human creativity. Creativity? Is that the right word? Or should I say, satisfactory. Yeap. It is as if there is no limit to human satisfaction.

     Back then in 1950s, a car that can reach up to 60 mph can be considered as a supercar. Wow. If I have a time machine and bring my Kelisa back to those time, obviously it will be the fastest car since it can reach up to 100 mph. As car evolves until recently, 430kph is no longer a dream for multi-millionaires. Pity mine.

     The same goes for buildings. Back then during the age of Kesultanan Melayu Melaka, a Sultan resides in a wooden palace. And now, the Sultan of Brunei owns a Boeing 747 worth a hundred million dollars, and then he re-designed it as a home at a cost of more than 120 million dollars.  *God I wish I knew what's going wrong with this world

     For current man-made marvels, Porsche Cayenne and buildings around city can be considered as the latest or expensive to own. 10 years later, the next generation will laugh at us for the craze of owning those antiques.

     So, for this 15 minutes walk, I learnt something; What satisfy human really?

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
I heard the Prophet saying,

If the son of Adam had two valleys of money, he would wish for a third, for nothing can fill the belly of Adam's son except dust, and Allah forgives him who repents to Him.

[Saheeh Bukhari , Volume 8, Book 76, Number 444]

1. If you have time, try to ponder upon the bold words; 'except dust'
2. Related article, Saya nak masuk Hizbollah  (to those who can read Malay)
3. Prophet sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam  used to say, Kun fid Dunya ka'annaka ghariibun ow 'abirus sabeel  (Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a traveller on a path). This reminds me on how little the world can offer compare to what Allah has.

Wallahu'alam bis sowab..
