How do I even begin?

This book was mentioned on a podcast I was listening to recently. I originally planned to buy it once I’m back in Oxford (sometime in September inshaAllah), but failed to overcome my craving and ended up purchasing it last weekend.

The Big School building is 111 years old this year. For some reason this reminds me of Bilbo Baggins, who slipped on the One Ring and vanished from sight during his “eleventy first”, or 111st, birthday party.
I like how the clouds provide a dramatic background to the basketball backboard here.

To a normal person, this may not look like much. But to an MCKK boy, a pack of this ‘Nasi Goreng Ayam’ from So’od is worth more than a shipment of Musang King durians.

Strange to see the park below which is normally teeming with people, but is now so empty thanks to, well, you know what…

My first ‘solat Jumaat’ in four months, alhamdulillah. Thank you to the mosque committee members for making all the necessary preparations for congregational prayer.

I’m really happy with the Portrait Mode on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. Sure it may not give the most technically accurate picture, but the results are very pleasant to look at (which is arguably more important).
This here is Besar, or rather Besar 2.0.
When I was a kid, my family used to have a grumpy cat called Besar (which means ‘big’ in Malay) because she was considerably larger than the 2 kittens we also had at the time. The cat in this picture belongs to my mother-in-law, but she looks similar to my old one (the cat, not my mother-in-law!), so to keep things simple I’ve named her Besar as well.

Check out this beautifully-designed paper cup by Starbucks. I immediately asked if they sold a mug with the same design on it but unfortunately the answer was no.
Never skip leg day.
