SOLAT TIME IN MASJID




I have seen many beautiful scenarios and happenings in the masjid-before,during and after the solat.Most of the photos were taken when I only have mobile camera.I don't think it is appropriate for me to bring my Fujifilm XT1.On certain occassion,I may bring my compact camera Lumix LX5.


Herewith I am sharing about the effect of light  on various part of the masjid and also and the time-before,during and after the solat.
It can bring out the hidden beauty of masjid's features which may been hiddep for anothering generation.

TYT MOBILE RADIO TH-UVF8

Last Sunday 21/2/2016,I used my old Quansheng mobile radios to facilitate our group riding from KL City Hall to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.Sadly,these 3-year oldsets had gone kaput due to battery problems.So I informed this matter to our Putrajaya Cycling Club facebook group.I was planning to buy new sets  TYT TH-UVF8 when I saved enough money.




As they say,God works in mysterious way.On reading my predicament,Mr Desmond Goh,a fellow rider, offered to buy one set for us.Then,another set by Mr Loh and later a few other cycling group members offered some contributions. Within two days,I have collected RM910.I plan to buy 4 units and each one costs RM250.We need four sets and two of us keep two sets.Either one of us must be present at each ride so that at least two sets are available at any ride.If there is no more contributions,I will top up the balance.Thank you all my friends for your care and generousity.

To get and program these portable radios,I seeked the help of my good friend Kamarul Azhan.He is an electronic engineer and ex -Sapura General Manager.Last night,he delivered one unit and taught me how to use it.The other three sets we have to wait.The shop ran out of stock-very popular among amateur users.For my cycling,we are using Citizen Band 477.xxxx so that everyone can use.In my case,I can use other approved frequencies like 430.000 because I am licensed by MCMC.My callsign is 9W2PAD.

Almost every week I ride with my friends.And most of the time,I ended leading the tribe-not because I am a good rider at the age of 63 years old but more of my knowledge of the cycling lanes in Putrajaya.Way back in 2008,I started to cycle here.Then I joined a few cycling groups and ended being appointed as a committee member of PIPR-Putrajaya Inter Park Ride set up by Perbadanan Putrajaya.We started small with 20 riders and the climax was when we managed to attract more than 3000 riders to cycle in Putrajaya some three years later.I was glad to be working together with Tuan Mohd Niza to promote cycling as a healthy lifestyle.

Usually about two dozens of riders join me for our relax Sunday ride.They have diiferent levels of ability,capacity and experience to ride.Managing this group of diverse people need planning ,managing and control as we ride on the public roads and gardens.Communication while we are riding is critical in ensuring the group remain together and have a safe and fun  ride.We can plan the best route but anything can happen on the way and we need to communicate all the time.It is an event management training for me a few times a month.

GOOD SHOES FOR WALKING


Last night I took my mother for a walk at Alamanda Shopping Complex,Putrajaya.I come here almost once a week.It is about 10km from my house in Bangi.Many friends thought that I live in Putrajaya because of the photos I took and uploaded and not to mention about my weekly cycling activities there.To be honest ,I love to live in Putrajaya but as of today,I cannot afford the price of houses there.May be one fine day..

Both my mother and me are very particular about our shoes-for business or for pleasure.We like good quality shoes made by Clarks and Hush Puppies.They are a bit expensive but we buy them when they are on sale with 30 to 50 percent discount.

As we were window shopping,we came near a Hush Puppies Shop.My wife took my mother into the shop.To cut the long story short,my mother ended up with a pair of new shoes.She told told me now she can walk better-inspired by new shoes!

While waiting for my mother choosing her shoes.my prying eyes landed at one pair of nice sandals.I like them but the shop did not have stock for my size.Thank God,I saved RM200.Such is life.Sometimes,I win and sometimes I lose.
