My emails are generally short and concise. In some instances, it is just a three-letter acronym email.At this point, I have a writer’s…

Reflections after 15 years

My first blog post is on 3rd February 2005. That is almost 16 years of blogging. It started on mohamadfazli.blogspot.com which was then migrated to mohamadfazli.com after I bought the domain. It started as a personal sharing space. More for me to write down my ramblings then progressed into a place where I share my…

Based on the comment from PSD deputy director-general (Development) Datuk Suhaime Mahbar, the introduction of the allowance in 1992 was because some of the roles that were offered by PSD was not attractive enough.

Sometimes you wonder

Whether the decisions that you make is the right or the wrong one. It’s never easy to be honest but sometimes we just need to you just to take a leap of faith. I usually leap first before thorough thinking. Not the best thing to do but at least I am decisive. Being decisive to…

This is annoying

I was in a rush just now and was buying a new iPad. I should have looked properly. I do remember that I asked for a cellular model, but ended up getting the WiFi model. Sigh. This is super annoying, but its ok la. Using a 4G model is good, but when I roam its…

I always strive to wake up at 4.30am every morning because it’s the best time for the recollect my mind…

Haze

Crazy bad haze in Malaysia now. The API – I think it’s way more than what it has been published.

Crashing Ringgit

in the past couple of weeks – we can see that ringgit to US dollar has been crashing like mad. I remember us having a $1 to MYR3.5 earlier this year. That’s generally ok but still expensive to be honest. In the recent weeks – that rate has been going up and up, to about…
