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 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), 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 )
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.
