Many people would spend their sundays well tucked away in bed in sweet slumber to enjoy a day in peace.In my case,who's technically a hobo but dignified one,mind you,spent it like any good christian( and I am muslim).I spent the day sunday for the benefit of others in greater need and GOD is my witness =p

The story comes with pictures and you are strongly encouraged to read :)Collapse )

Hello dear LJ-licans,

I guess the subject can shed the reason why I'm writing this entry into my journal.Whenever I submit a new entry it always does give a submission of guilt,and I must admit,I do facebook
www.facebook.com/saintoctober more than coming to livejournalsaintoctober.livejournal.comon  daily basis as I used to since I started blogging.

I would be so enthralled to see comments from LJ-friends on my recipe blog,on poem entries, and entries on my life and happenings in Bangladesh ,in Singapore and kitchen.However,that died out as I found my new admiration in facebook as I have discovered long lost friends networking with me again after eons.I am afraid to say livejournal doesn't accomplish that.

Then,again,Livejournal isn't about just networking,it's about writing! first and foremost.Keeping a journal and it has so much to offer to those who has the art in their language to post their hobbies,interests and various subject matter that cannot be disclosed without censorship or locked entry to friends only.

After typing the first three paragraphs I tried to put this entry under a cut and I failed to do so, as I can't seem to cut and paste the above into the box. I most unfortunately, pronounce myself guilty of neglecting LJ for so long and I paying the price for it....more so for any one who bothers to read this poop.

What's been happening? ---

I am trying to create a business solution for rural people in remote villages of Bangladesh who doesn't have access to electricity. Solar power lanterns which is more portable and cheaper than getting an entire solar power system who couldn't afford it in the short term.
The trouble is I couldn't get the Bangladesh customs to release the goods as the clearing and forwarding agents still want to make money of my duty free goods
www.nbr-bd.org/customs.html and they got the custom officers in the cargo warehouse to tell me my goods aren't solar power equipments even though the only way these solar lanterns generate its power source is from the sun. Just read how many times I typed solar to explain my situation.It is that solar!  what's happening...Collapse )what's happening...Collapse )

That is that in Bangladesh,and the work is still in process.In the meantime,I'm in Singapore because I've started to grown a certain fascination in this country for all its promises.If I do get the job I applied for and I do hope I get it,I can become this island's Permanent Resident which entitles me to a certain priviledges. Particularly, I can travel between Bangladesh-Singapore without the requirement of a visa for a number of years..and yes..years with and an "s".

So,I certainly hope things move towards a more positive direction from this point on.In the meantime,I shall enjoy my tae kwon do and attempt to lose 10 kgs. oh, I weigh 70 kgs now, I gained 10 kg more from 60kg since my time returning to laziness and eating only my mom's cooking and ordering takeouts. Dhaka is truly a life of sheer luxury.

I know I cannot be forgiven for my sins of being away from this wonderful world of livejournal for so long,but I had my reasons - university,family,thesis project,volunteer work,paid work,RELATIONSHIPS!
Yup,yup, I had it all in one gush of a tidal wave and learning how to swallow it all and I am sure it is hard for those around me too.

I am back today not to throw my life crap on you all but to say something interesting.
Its about an impression I grew about business and pioneers who with their self-made business made significant changes in people's life and the world.

The following is an article I wrote for my class project during my masters in entrepreneurship course in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.I hope you could all provide more insights and thoughts on how you view the world of independent businesses.

As I see it,we are all entrepreneurs in our own way,as we all seek an individual journey to find our way to reach our destination....wherever that might be.

21st February is not only Mother's Language Day but before and still now it was Language Martyrs Day.
To find out more please visit:


Unfortunately,I won't be in Bangladesh at this moment.
Its just shameful to know how far people can act upon their selfishness and foolish meaningless pride.
how people still see others as being lower than them and that one superior than others.
Its good to be individualistic but not at the expense at relinquishing others as inferior.
We are all human yet as people we all have our unique identity which makes us all knowing each other differently so special..so exotic and wonderful.

Lets not judge negatively people for their difference,whether it be by skin colour,state of origin,status or whatever!
Show respect and acknowledge people as we are human. Learn to live in peace. Have a friendly heart. Be open to accept before you deny.

This is for the sake of admitting that I have been neglecting my journal with great remorse!

However,its not without reason.Life is getting tougher followed by the unthinkable decisions I have placed myself in taking.

As much as I would write a lot more but time doesn't permit me to do so do at this moment.

Hopefully the following days to come,I shall update on my current standing in life.

LJ-licans...do you remember me???????
