Back to my story...
I decided to resign from my previous job and come back to my home town, where my Mom needs me  after my Dad passed away. I will working on new project for my future^_^ Workhard is needed,. no problemo.. struggling is always fun for me! Yay!!

Just like Prophet Mohammed's moving event from Mecca to Madinah. I also moving from the city where I worked in to my home town. For my spiritual point of view, my Hijrah (migration) is from my past where I did something that I not really enjoy it to my future where I'd like to take care of my Mom and make my dream comes true at the same time. To be honest, althought in my previous city I feel insecure, somehow I missed my friends there...

My future is started today. Won't waste time anymore.. won't do something that against my heart anymore...  From now on everything will be different...
