I hate iPhone

Ok, maybe that's too harsh... Maybe I just don't like it. After ~5 days using it, I do kinda feel that way even though I really hope otherwise. 

Yeah, finally last Sunday, on Hari Arafah 1437H, I bought an iPhone! I bought it at Machines, IOI Mall Putrajaya. I fasted that day, but didn't feel hungry cos kenyang main henfon baru 😜.

My iPhone...

Why? Just like old folks say, "Curiosity kills the cat". I guess it doesn't kill me, but it surely makes me stressed. Yes, I'm curious. I want to try it. Just like I told JD, it won't be so bad isn't it?? If I don't buy it now, I don't know when I will since I'm not interested with iPhone 7. Furthermore, I'm a geek at heart. I love gadget. So naturally I'd like to have an experience with iPhone myself especially when its users keep telling people that iPhone is the best 😏. Tak pakai, tak tau. Ok let me use it then. I'm neither Android nor Apple fangirl. So I won't simply say Android is better without trying iPhone 1st. & I won't simply say iPhone is the best just because it's Apple.

2 days after, Soya.Cincau wrote this... 

The best thing about the iPhone 7 launch isn’t the iPhone 7

Exactly, right on point!

Now back to why I don't like this so called 'exclusive-premium' smart phone. iPhone got so many limitations! For Apple fans, they call it simplicity. Yeah right 🙄. Simplicity should be by your own choice not because you're stuck. But that was expected. iPhone can't be customized etc. I know that fact. The thing is, I always read that iPhone, unlike Android, offers many & polished apps. I believe that. I'm satisfied with Android apps. I thought iPhone would have better apps. But I was so wrong. Even simple basic apps like keyboard, notes & alarm clock are worse. I'm not satisfied with the built-in apps. Fine the store should offers the better one. I don't mind to pay. I have installed & uninstalled various apps just to find the right one that suits my usage, still couldn't find the one that at least if not better, on par with what are offered in Play store. Seriously. What apps that you Apple fans are talking about? 🤔😤

Maybe they are talking about games apps. If that's true, no wonder people say iPhone is for budak² baru nak up (BBNU). I don't play games. My smart phone is like my mobile organizer. I jot down everything in my phone, even update my blog using it, just like now, so I need a friendly keyboard. I utilize the calendar to set my personal & work appointments/activities. I want my alarm clock to be reliable to wake me up in the morning not depends on the ringer volume. Don't tell me I don't know how to use it. I'm a tech-savvy ok. Only 5 days experience maybe beats months of other iPhone users, which I think many of them only use it to make calls & get connected to social medias... & play games. Don't suggest me to jailbreak or rooting, I like my gadget as it is.

I guess enough for now. I can go on ranting about the bad sides of iPhone. My friends once told me, once I used an iPhone, I'd like it. The other friends said once you used iPhone, you won't change to other brands. Yeah, right. Some people think it's 'cooler' using iPhone. In summary, macam lah best sangat pakai iPhone ni 😒. To be honest Apple's fanbois/fangirls are annoying, just simply obsess with the brand. Janji iPhone. Skrin kecik, 16GB storage pun takpe 😛. I know it's not the best smart phone even before I bought it. But I thought it'd be on par with Android flagship  - lacks here & there but still wins in some aspects. But right now I have to say iPhone dah tertinggal beberapa tiang di belakang when even the apps lack of features.

Tengok lah.. Maybe I'll update again my experience using iPhone after a month. Still 5 days is too early to make a final verdict, I know 😌. Who knows I might change my mind later. But sshhh don't tell JD about this. He'd say, "I told you so...". Err really hope I'll change my mind.

Selamat Hari Raya Haji 1437H

Lamanya tak update blog, for someone yang berazam untuk frequently update blog.

2 hari lagi kita akan menyambut Hari Raya Qurban. Esok hari Arafah.

Semalam, ketika perjalanan pulang ke rumah dari ofis, dengar Ikim, diceritakan perihal korban. Qurban ialah penghampiran... Maknanya lebih mendekatkan diri dengan Allah. Ia adalah ibadah bukan adat. Tapi zaman sekarang, sebab dah terbiasa kot macam lupa ianya adalah ibadah untuk mendekatkan diri dengan Allah & ibadah korban dicemari unsur² negatif seperti berebut bahagian. Berkorbanlah ikhlas kerana Allah. Yang tidak berkorban tetapi membantu pun ada ganjarannya kalau ikhlas kerana Allah bukan semata² nak dapat daging percuma.

Salah satu trip yang aku teringin nak join ialah trip korban di luar negara seperti di Kemboja atau Vietnam. Suka baca kisah mereka yang ikut trip korban ni. How Muslim di sana looking forward for it bukan semata² sebab daging percuma, malah mereka memang jarang makan daging. Sanggup menyeberang sungai & melalui perjalanan jauh untuk mengambil daging.  Sesuatu yang baru melihat ibadah korban di negara orang di mana mungkin tak semeriah Malaysia tetapi cukup menginsafkan. InshaaAllah one day, bila anak² dah besar.

Teringin juga menjalankan ibadah korban di kampung sendiri. Buat masa ini belum diizinkan kerana tiada plan untuk pulang ke kampung. Kekangan cuti yang singkat & jalan jem. Hehee lame excuse but so true... 😅. InshaaAllah...

Pastinya juga waktu ini akan terfikir bila lah giliran untuk menunaikan ibadah haji. Moga2 bila waktunya tiba akan dipermudahkan urusan dengan kesihatan yang baik.

Persiapan Syawal 1437H

Seperti yang diduga, Sabtu lalu badan terasa penat kerana nak datang period. Elok esoknya, Ahad seawal 7 pagi memang red flag pun. Kerana penat hari Sabtu tu, plan nak masak sup tulang selepas berbuka, terpaksa dibatalkan. Since Ahad tu memang dah tak boleh puasa, jadi masak lah sup tulang. Maknanya tahun ni 9 hari kene ganti puasa. Paling banyak dalam sejarah ni.

Malam ini malam 30 Ramadhan. Malam terakhir Ramadhan tahun ini. Rasa sayu pulak hati.

Hari ini aku masak agak banyak lauk untuk berbuka. Biasanya akan ada 3 jenis lauk je. Tapi hari ini ada 4. JD pun tegur. Masak lebih hari ni sebab ini lah kali terakhir aku masak untuk berbuka puasa Ramadhan tahun ni. Esok akan berbuka di rumah Mak.

Persiapan raya tahun ini boleh dikatakan kurang berbanding tahun lepas. Seperti biasa sejak ada anak dara 2 org ni, aku akan menempah baju dengan Mak Long. 3 pasang sorang. Aku pun 3 pasang juga. Target tahun ni nak beli ready made online sepasang je sebab baju raya tahun lepas pun ada yang tak pakai lagi. Tapi end up 2 pasang. Ok lah tu, tak lari sangat. Yang sepasang lagi tu pun murah je kalau nak dibandingkan dengan harga baju sekarang yang rata² rm200++.

Tudung raya tak beli. Ada lah beli tudung baru. Tapi bukan lah untuk raya & harga pun murah. Tahun lepas takde kasut raya, jadi tahun ni beli 2 pasang, pun yang murah juga. Somehow berkenan yang murah. Selamat bajet.

Beg raya last minute baru rasa nak beli. Sebab PMS lah tu. Khamis lepas, hampir nak beli beg preloved dari kawan, tapi rupanya bukan saiz yang aku nak. Petangnya selepas training, gi Alamanda masuk butik Coach, takde plak yang berkenan. Contact seller kat IG, dah nak balik kampung beraya pula 😢. So takde lah beg raya. Hehee tapi memang nafsu nak beg raya tu sebab PMS je. Tak pernah² sibuk nak beg raya.

Kuih raya pula memang target tahun ni no kuih raya untuk rumah sendiri. Beli kuih raya untuk Mak & mertua saje. Untuk rumah sendiri, beli kerepek² cukup.

Baju raya casual budak² sebelum puasa dah beli. Jadi masa puasa takde lah sibuk nak shopping beli baju anak². Shopping untuk diri sendiri tengok kalau ada masa. Tak beli banyak pun baju budak². Nak cari baju Honey susah sikit sebab saiz badannya yg bam bam tu. Takpe lah janji ada baju baru.

Untuk rumah takde yang baru. Teringin gak nak beli karpet baru sebenarnya. Tengok lah hujung minggu time raya nanti kalau ada masa & masih ada mood nak berkarpet baru.

Asalnya niat di hati teringin gak nak buat open house tahun ni. Tapi sebab badan tak kurus² tak jadi lah. Lame betul excuse kan. Tapi betul. Tak mau lah JD sorang kurus. Nanti orang tegur dia je. Lagipun pressure cooker Noxxa kan ada. Tahun ni kita utilize dia dulu.

Alhamdullilah tahun ni memang kurang sikit berbelanja. Since berbuka pun 25 hari masak sendiri, jimat gak belanja tang tu.

InshaaAllah, semoga bertemu lagi Ramadhan tahun hadapan.
