Muqaddimah - Introduction


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful,

As-Salaamu 'Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh.

Welcome to my new blog. My name is Ahmad Affendy and I am here to share all I can about my life. Insha-Allah (if Allah wills), I will be writing and posting many things that matters to me, and hopefully, to you to.

I will be posting articles, photos, videos and reviews. I will be writing about my home, my family, my country, my religion, my school, my hostel, my travels, my holidays, my past, my future, my studies, my friends, and even my food as long as it is newsworthy!

I will write mostly in English, but watch out for posts in Bahasa Melayu (my mother tounge) and other languages I am currently studying. I will add honesty, passion, love, analysis, spirit and interest in my writing so it becomes alive!

I really wished that I has stopped procrastinating and started this blog earlier. Right now, I am in Grade (or Year) 11 and its Malaysian equivalent Tingkatan 5. This will be a crucial year for me since I have IGCSEs coming up in May. I will be doing as much studies as possible but whenever I have a tidbit of free time, I will write something here.

To reach out to a global audience is not easy, and I will not be expecting many readers in my blog, but I hope this can count as a starting point for achieving my dreams to become a journalist. This blog will help me improve my journalistic and writing skills important for my future career. I am a human being and I will make mistakes from time to time, but do point it out for me because from there I will improve. I accept constructive criticism too, and this can also help me greatly to improve my skills.

I think I have written enough for my intro, because I don't want to bore people with long lengths of anecdotes (some of my friends can't take it!). If it is too long, I apologise as I am new to blogging. Please leave a comment below and if you are my friends from school, see you there!


  1. New blogger too? Persistence is key, is what I keep telling myself. As for your page.. I can't seem to find a "Follow" button anywhere for non-blogspot users; it'd be great if you could add one somewhere. Your dreams will stay just dreams if you don't pursue them. No feedback can be really demotivating, I know, but just write anyway; someone's bound to read it at some point. Best of luck! :)

    1. Hallo aspacewithin!
      Thank you for your encouraging comments on this blog. It really warms my heart knowing that someone is interested in reading what I write, because I am finding it difficult nowadays due to a busy schedule and almost zero response from anyone. Since you asked about how to follow me even though you use WordPress, you can follow the instructions on this link: . As of now I can't find a special widget to serve non-Blogspot users, but when I find one I will add it to my blog layout.
      Again, thank you for your thoughtful feedback and I wish you all the best \(^_^)/

    2. Oo thanks a lot for the link! Totally useful :D and thanks for dropping by at my blog too! Any feedback is always welcome~
      I'm sure there are many other people interested in what you write too, you may just have to find them first :P
