Crossed The Finish Line But Nowhere Near $2K

It was a tough race last Wednesday. 28 teams took part with $2K up for grabs. Yet, Team RESCO To The Rescue only managed to become the 11th team to reach the finishing point, taking 1 hour and 33 minutes in process. Nevertheless it's worth the effort. We tried our best. UBD's Amazing Race 2009 is sure a race to remember. Good job team and organizers!

Raya with RESCO. It's A Wrap!

Last Wednesday, 14th October 2009, RESCO organised an open house raya celebration, taking place at Dewan Asrama Perempuan, Kolej Kediaman Siswi. The turnout was unbelievable. Judging by the number of attendance that we received, it can be considered a success compared to last year's. Thanks to those who made an effort to come down to RESCO's raya open house celebration and made this event a huge success.

In our effort to make the simple event a happening one, we organised various quizzes as well as lucky draws with many prizes to be won for the audience to take part in and the response that we received was very very encouraging.
Among the things that RESCO held during the evening was the 'scratch and win' competition whereby there were 2 $5 Easi and 2 $5 recharge cards to be won. Those who can put in the recharge card numbers and recharge the fastest, well, of course, gets his/her account recharged.
The highlight of the evening, Zulkamal won the male's best dress award. Congrats Zul!
More pictures? Macam biasa, ask E-jat or Syaza.

It's makan time! Dr Hj Ramli Hj Tingkong (second left), our guest of honor for the evening.

First time meliat camera ka Piz? Kay! Get your own drink, will ya?

Raya celebration is more meaningful if celebrated along with various ethnics and races =) thanks for attending.

Some even made efforts to dress really nicely for the simple event. It's people like you that really put colors to the event! Thank you.

RESCO would once again like to thanks all those who are directly and indirectly involved in making this event a huge success. Hope to see you again in a similar event next year! Andai ada kekurangan atau salah silap pada malam itu, kami memohon seribu kemaafan. Yang baik itu datangnya dari Allah, yang buruk itu datangnya dari kita sendiri jua.

Big Belated Birthday Shoutout!

This belated birthday wish goes to Diyana Ambong, our F1 block captain. Happy 22nd birthday Dian! Your high dedication towards RESCO is tremendous and will always be appreciated for years to come.
Dian. Celebrated her 22nd birthday on the 15th October 2009, marked with fire crackers and E-jat tegugur ke lungkang. Hope you had a blast Dian!

RESCO Raya Roadtrip Concluded In Tutong

Finally, RESCO raya roadtrip is over, sadly though. It has been a great raya fun with these bunch of cool people. Some 18 RESCO members turned up and joined in the crew for Tutong roadtrip. Before, we went for raya in Tutong, however, we singgah sekajap at Zulkamal's place di Kg. Ayer. Apa nama kampung nya lagi tu Zul??
What's interesting about beraya di Kg. Ayer is we have the chance to experience a boat ride. Bagi orang darat, ni bukan nya peluang yang selalu ada. Nya orang putih, a chance not to be missed. I gotta say, I love the breeze that hit my face everytime the boat cruises with speed.
Anyway, the houses that we visited that day are as follows: Zulkamal's, Mizah's, Himahafizah's, Juen's, Arina's, Rysah's and last but not least, Aya's ( I didn't miss any names did I?). All but Aya, had open houses. Jangan ucap inda kanyang.
Here are some of the pictures during the day. For more of the pictures, ask E-jat or Syaza.
At Zulkamal's before moving on to the next destination

Ko ganya tau tu apa yang ko buat atu Jis.

Time the guys sembahyang Jumaat. The ladies did lotsa things of their own, including.........

Hilmi punya cover album baru. Dapatkan di pasaran sekarang.

I like this picture. It's perfect. This was at Juen's by the way.
With regards, Syaza Syazwan.

Yet Another 21 Club Member

Last Friday, 9th November 2009, RESCO celebrated Hamizah binti Julaihi, our vice-president's 21st birthday. The surprise celebration took place at her own house without her knowing much about it in the first place. Let the pictures do the talking of the brief event.
Mizah (yang menutup mulut nya ah), got so surprised, she bursted into tears. Laki-laki baju purple senyum-senyum atu si Azhar. Puas ati nya surprise plan nya success ah.

Orang kan happy-happy, ia tangis-tangis tia pulang.

Mizah and Azhar begambar with Mizah's birthday gift yang si laki-laki bagi. Guess what? Nama patung nya si Yuri. Pandai you pilih Azhar.

Oktober Fest For Juen!

Our birthday man for the month of October, Hj Muhd Zuwaini bin Hj Aliyani, a.k.a Juen.
Position: M4 block captain

RESCO Raya Roadtrip: Destination KB

Second day of our raya roadtrip went just great, just as planned. In fact, we finished off earlier than expected. Houses that we went to are as follows: Eqah's, Azrina's, laki-laki nya sembahyang Jumaat sekajap, Azhar's, Syaza's (me), Bakrin's, Efna's, Amoy's and last but not least, Aziz's.
Of course, before heading to KB, we paid our due to Maya by visiting her place first. As for the rest, let the pictures do the talking. For more of the pics, ask Syaza or E-jat. Pictures also will be posted here upon request.
At Bakrin's. A candid taken by E-jat, which somehow, I find it beautiful. Warden, buleh ni udah di jadi kan gambar easi kad $100.

A group photo at Maya's.

Pinky looking pretty in.....maroon? Oh well *wink* This was at Azrina's by the way, prior to Jumaat prayer.

Hilmi, although educated, somewhat find it hard to distinguish the differences between a microphone and an electric fan.

Blindfolded and sing:
Nenek nenek si bongkok tiga
Siang ngantuk malam berjaga
Cari cucu di mana ada
Nenek ku kawan dengan anak raja
OK, aku pilih yang atu. Tuu..

DID YOU KNOW? All the 8 houses yang kami aga di KB semua nya open house! Semua orang kekanyangan berabis!
p/s: banar nya ku kan buat opinion poll "the best RESCO Raya Couple" tapi gerenti sudah si Azhar sama si Mizah manang kan. Jangan marah~ :p beibun~

RESCO Raya Roadtrip: Brunei Muara Series

Memang sudah tradisi RESCO time aidilfitri. Memperuntukkan certain hari untuk beraya ke rumah-rumah ahli-ahli nya. 1st November 2009, Khamis pukul 8 malam, kami beraya ke rumah-rumah ahli RESCO yang tinggal di kawasan Brunei Muara mana-mana yang sampat atu. First destination, Pinky's house. We were asked to stay hungry by the tuan rumah the day earlier supaya kami buleh makan banyak-banyak di rumah nya. Dangar nya, ia ada masak.
Wall photo of Pinky at her house, our first destination of the evening.

Perut sudah kenyang, hati ada banyak senang, muka ada banyak senyum.

That evening, hujan turun dengan lebatnya. Memang mencabar. Among other problems we faced were kereta si Hilmi masuk lungkang dapan rumah si Ejat, putus convoy sekajap (ani biasa la) and lag a bit behind schedule. But overall, the trip was ok.

Sesi bergambar beramai di rumah E-jat.

Final destination (macam thriller seram ja bunyi nya) of the evening, Hilmi & Hilman's house.
The initial plan too was to visit Maya's place at Sg. Akar but time wasn't on our side. Highlight of malam atu was the girls sampai hostel ngam-ngaaaaam pukul 11 thanks largely to the heroic attempt by the guys to become Brunei's first F1 drivers.

Credits to E-jat for the pics. For more of them, please do ask for the pictures from Ejat or Syaza. Thank you.

Dari KB Ku Pohon Seribu Kemaafan

Alhamdulillah. Raya is closely approaching. Ibadah puasa kitani pun akhirnya lengkap. See you Ramadhan, welcome Syawal. Semua umat Islam gembira. Miskin kaya, tua muda, and not to mention, syaitan jua! Keluar dari lokap jua akhirnya. What, banar jua tu. Anyway, Bulan Syawal. What are you guys really look forward to time raya ani? Duit raya? Some of us at this age might still get it, some jadi tukang provide duit raya tia pulang. Pakai baju baru? Well, probably. Most of the case, cematu plang jua. But as for me, raya is more than that. Raya is the time kitani bermaaf-maafan. Susun sepuluh jari, salam orang tua kitani, our brothers and sisters, colleagues, friends and relatives, basically people around us.

Mengapa we are encouraged to forgive and forget time raya? It is because raya is a festive month celebrating penat lelah kitani berpuasa menahan lapar, dahaga and syahwat. So raya is designated to celebrate our victory menempuh semua dugaan atu with orang-orang yang kitani sayangi. Imagine celebrating raya bermasam mua. Inda jua best tu bui. I mean, that's my theory. But it makes sense right?? Of course forgiving is never easy. It takes great courage to do so. I admit, I myself still ada menyimpan perasaan dendam at some particular people for the wrongdoings that they had done to me which I think is unforgiveable.

I have mixed view of how I'm gonna see my raya this year. Meaningful, because alhamdulillah, I live to this day. During the fasting month, I went out for sungkai a lot of time with a lot of people. Sungkai with my RESCO colleagues, with my ex-SMSA mates as well as ex-St. Margaret friends and not to mention sama family and kekasih hati. Kupon pun banyak angus. Which makes me realise, I am surrounded and loved by so many great people. Apa membari nya ku iski kan raya. I also spent a night dalam bulan Ramadhan ani berqiamullail di masjid UBD with some UBD people which of course, I managed to make some friends with. Memang ngalih tapi ya Allah, bermakna rasa me. Up to this day, I really miss qiamullail. Mana inda, that was my first time berqiamullail di bulan Ramadhan. May Allah panjangkan umur ku so that aku dipertemukan lagi with such an experience.

Di bulan Syawal ani jua keiskian ku untuk beraya bertambah as I try to live up kembali trend mengirim kad raya yang sudah lama terkubur dek zaman IT ani. Thanks to my bro E-jat for giving me one. I love u as my brother and friend. Inda ramai kawan yang ku anggap sebagai abang ani. Lebih-lebih lagi aku nada abang. Terharu nya aku time kau bagi aku kad raya atu Allah saja yang tau. That's you in the picture!

Ramadhan ani jua quite a number of tragedies yang ku dangar. Orang kana baham buaya and a very good friend of mine, Allahyarhamah Raihana Hazwani meninggal dunia due to stroke just recently (al-Fatihah buat mu sahabat). So I suppose (which I think is a 110% guarantee) the families of the deceased akan menyambut raya tahun ani dengan penuh suram, more or less. Me, having also lost a good friend, of course ada merasa sedikit kehilangan. Which makes me feel like wanna limit myself from having too much fun this coming raya. All and all, such tragedies sedikit sebanyak ada jua membawa keinsafan and kesedaran. Orang selalu menasihatkan agar berhati-hati di jalan raya takut ada perkara yang inda diingini terjadi before and time raya ani. It turns out that Allah tries to tell us that kematian buleh terjadi dimana-mana and however He wants it to. Ya Allah, panjangkan lah umur ku serta orang di sekeliling ku, Amin.

To conclude this 'telampau-panjang-jua eh-buring-ku-membaca' post I would like to call upon my friends, mana-mana yang bermasam mua and bertegang urat sesama rakan seperjuangan atu, please do set that aside altogether. We jernihkan mana yang keruh, we start on a brand new page, all in the name of the month of Syawal, if not for me. I love you all my friends, you know who you are.

Seikhlas hati jua ingin ku memohon ampun dan maaf andai ku ada terkasar bahasa atau menyinggung perasaan sesiapa saja. Maklum, manusia, inda terlepas dari melakukan kesilapan. And pada yang pernah buat salah arah ku jua atu. Baaaah, apa lagi. Jangan ego, minta maaf tah jua! Ku maafkan plang udah ni, tapi still! xp <--kamu tau ni Hilmi, Hilman.

Dengan penuh hormat, cinta, kasih dan sayang,

Syaza Syazwan.
