Hari Raya Gathering, SM Sains Sembrong

AlhamduliLlah, on the 9th September 2011, SM Sains Sembrong successfully organised its first Hari Raya gathering. It was a simple yet very meaningful event. Several important personalities from various departments in Kluang were invited to the function but only a few of them came. We also invited the Darus-Syifa' group from Melaka to perform rituals for the safety SM Sains Sembrong and its occupants.

Tasteful food was prepared by the school's very own chef, Cikgu Rafi. Thanks for the wonderful food, Mr Rafi. Boleh masak lagi lain kali. Hehehe.

Enjoy some of the pictures taken during the event.

Samura International Cultural, Sports and Education Festival 2011

My last photography related task for SM Sains Muar - video production showcasing SM Sains Muar profile in conjunction with the first Samura International Cultural, Sports and Education Festival. The video was produced using Apple's iMovie. It was the first time I used iMovie but everything went smoothly as iMovie was easy to use. Next project - video about SM Sains Sembrong using Adobe Premiere. In the meantine, enjoy the video on SM Sains Muar.

Moving Into New Home

On Saturday, 28 August 2011, my wife and I went to SM Sains Sembrong to send some furniture to our new home. I have asked the Senior Assistant whether furniture for the teacher's quarters is provided. His answer - "should be provided but not necessarily supplied". Hmmmm.

At about 6.30 p.m., we went to Kluang city for breaking fast. The line was not long but some customers were undecided what to eat, thus it took a little bit longer to serve them. Well, we finally did break fast even though about 5 minutes late.

After breaking fast, we went into the Parkson supermarket. Initially, we only wanted to do window shopping but finally we ended up buying 2 pillows, a comforter and a few other things for the new home.
Afterwards, we went to window shopping at an electric shop. There, we bought a refrigerator and a washing machine. As it was already 9.30 p.m., the shop can only deliver the goods on the next day. My wife and I decided to spend the night at the new home as it was inconvenient to go back to Muar that night and came back again on the next day.

Since we were spending our first night in the new home, I performed the ritual of entering a new home. After the Maghrib-Isya prayer, I recited the Surah Al-Fatihah, Ayatul-Kursiyy, Surat Al-Ikhlas, Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Nas several times while going round every space and room in the house. May Allah bless the new home and save it from any disturbances either by the seen or the unseen ones.

After the Subuh prayer onn the folowing day, I took the early morning air to stroll around the area nearby. I visited the boys' hostel, the dining hall, the surau and the teachers' flat. I also managed to have a short conversation with the security guard for the hostel area.

Before leaving for Muar, my wife and I took the opportunity to have our pictures taken around the house. Enjoy the pictures below.

Congratulations to Yulis and Faizal for the successful completion of their wedding ceremony on 1st May 2011. May your happiness last forever.

I was given the opportunity to shoot their wedding ceremony, starting with the solemnisation on  April 30th and the reception on the May 1st. It was a joy to work with both of them. Thanks for giving me the job, for the tasty food and the fun while shooting. Thanks also to Bro Wanz for giving me hand during the reception.
