Who Am I?

Sheffwed‘s name is taken from a famous football club called Sheffield Wednesday.It used to be a footballing ‘giant’ but now the so called giant is slumbering in the championship division. How I wish the giant would wake up soon and stamp its authority in the English Premier League where it duly belong.

I am using the pen name of TheDreamer for this blog. I took the name TheDreamer (El Illusionista) as it is best describe this blog. Every success, every goal, every achievement in life starts of with a dream. A distant dream it may be, but step by step it will surely become a reality.

This blog is where TheDreamer will share it’s opinions from its point of view.Life through TheDreamer‘s eyes. Care to share as well,will you?

“Today’s feat was yesterdays dreams. Today’s dreams lead to tomorrow’s success.”

Waiting for bus in Sheffield

I was born in Kuala Lumpur but raised in the far reaches of where fish and chips were their traditional food.Where football is their way of life.Where grim and cloudy weather paint their skies for most of the year.That is the place where I spent most of my childhood days. But at the same time always yearning for the place where I called home. A heart craving for motherland. I got my wish at the tender age of 12.

I first started my life as student way back in 1991. This is when I first attended kindergarten. Back then, I was 5 years old.According to my PakCik, I excelled during my early years enough to top the class and even got top of the 6 years old class.So, I begged my parents to let me enter primary school when I was 6 years old.I had to wait another year to start school. I then entered school for one year and then `furthered my studies` in England. After roughly 4 years there, I went back to take my UPSR exams in Malaysia. After that I continued pursuing my studies in Malaysia until now. I am currently furthering in yet another overseas country.This time I headed east instead of west.These are my schools,

Taski Mutaqqin, Sri Abim Kajang (93), Greenlands Junior School (Sheffield) (93-97), King Ecgbert School (Sheffield), SK Jalan Enam (98), SMK Bandar Baru Bangi, SMKA Maahad Hamidiah Kajang (99-03), Pusat Persediaan Teknikal ke Jepun (PPKTJ) (04-05),ย  Nagaoka National Institute of Technology (Japan) (06-09), Muroran Institute of Technology (MIT) (Japan) (09-11)

Never in my wildest dream, did I imagine of going to Japan. Anime, manga, all those super innovative works, the complexity of Japan was just not for me I thought. As I was brought up in a totally different culture and way of life, I see the far east as something far from my reaches. But as it is in life, GOD has a plan for us. I applied for Germany but got Japan instead. Ironic.

Then I had to endure 2 years of preparation learning about the Japanese language as well as their culture in which I had to pass the final exam in order to be merited to fly. Another 3 years of college life awaited me in Japan. There I had to obtain my diploma and then fight with the Japanese to gain entry to the 3rd year of University. Alhamdulillah I was accepted to Muroran Institute of Technology where I am now. I am currently in my final year.

Sports. It has always been my passion. It ranges from the famous to the absurd sports. I love them all. During the IPIJ SummerCamp 2008 in Japan, with Ustaz Hasrizal I asked this question as part of the ice-breaking session:

What was the 1st sport that I took seriously when I was young? Feel free to answer. ( Refer here )

1) Football

2) Gymnastics

3) Swimming

From quite a young age I have come to love football. The beautiful game as it is called. I would memorize all the countries with their capital cities in the world just to know the nation competing for the World Cup. And my love and passion for football has always and will always be up there at the top.

    Wow, that must be a good experience for you then. Hope you dont mind me asking, where in the UK did you go? And for how long?
    For me, the experience of studying in the UK is quite interesting as it is different from the system that we have. To say the least, studying in UK is quite fun actually. You would agree with that rite?

    Anyway, thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s been my pleasure. I’ve visited your blog and its really nice. Really informative and interesting. Please feel free too come by again.

  16. Salam,
    We went to Winchester. Small, old town. my father was an army officer so we stayed in the army camp areas.
    I must say school in UK was rather fun. Even the going to school part on the double decker.
    No boredom during school hours. we moved around from one class to another for lessons. The subjects were exciting. Banyak hands on. Pottery,wood work,metal work,drama etc.
    But I was wearing a scarf even way back then in 1980 and of course it made some heads turn when I walk by. But I just ignored it. I guess they got used to it after that.
    Just one bad memory.When i was going down the stairs of the double decker bus,some boys pulled out my scarf just to see if i was bald or not!Huhuhu
    Maybe i didn’t notice before,but we have one more thing in common.
    We went to the same school!What a coincidence.
    But I’m way your senior. I also went to Maahad Hamidiah.We were among the first to move in the present school building.
    I was in Form Four then. U can start counting my age now.Hahaha.
    Nice to know you by the way.

    1. Salam,
      Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

      Wow, going to school for you back then was also an adventure ๐Ÿ™‚
      I totally agree, the education over there are far more interesting. A lot of hands on subjects which I really enjoyed. When I first got back to Malaysia, I was in for a shock. It was like having to perform in a pressure cooker at such an early age. I love the time when each day, the teacher would read books to us. And we would gather and huddle up listening to the stories.

      Sometimes, the boys still do that pulling scarf thing. And I felt for the girls then, because they always make jokes about wearing the scarf. But gradually they just drop the act as they didnt get the response they wanted. Ahaks.

      Hamidians ๐Ÿ™‚ The school has changed a lot since I last visited it. More new buildings which I think spoils the landscape of somewhat. I have lots of fonds memories studying in the school. I miss Maahad. Do you come to the school once in a while also?

      Hope to hear from you again soon.
      Nice knowing you btw.
