Most people already know how to get/acquire money, but still, most people struggling to manage their money. These blogs really helped me on managing my financial life:

Currently, I’m into the idea of curation. All things should be curated. Why you asked? There’s too many things to read and consume! Plus I’m not going to spend a lot of time on the internet, that would make me missed my wonderful life, which is real life.
My first project with Gaddafi, curaqion, is about curating good and fascinating article on Quora. That went well, for now. Except now we need to provide paid subscription to make sure this project sustained for a long time.
Alright, back to newspaper. Ah newspaper, a medium that has so little good information, many unwanted things, bullsh*t news, celebrity gossips, and of course, advertisements, a lot of it. But we can’t really complain, don’t we? All newspaper is just like that.
So, enter the world of curated content. Imagine a newspaper that provide a useful, insightful news on locals, education, foreign affairs, technology, and sports. However, cramming all that topics would be too ambitious, so maybe we should start with local news first. Paid user will get daily news by email, and normal user can view the content on the website for free.
The updates will commence on the evening. Because I hate people who use their working time to do other things while working.
Great right? But the problem is, we need to update the website each day. Unless we hire a editor, this idea would become useless.
I’m glad that I shared this. Maybe I should do this again, given that I had an idea to share.
This month’s featured article, “What is so great about Jay-Z”.
He is a hustler in the truest sense of the word, and his hardcore work ethic has brought him success in every arena in which he has applied himself.

Most people take the safe route, because they’re afraid of being different and failing. If you do nothing amazing but you go with the crowd, then you don’t look stupid. But then you miss out on the amazing.
If you never stand out from the crowd, you will always be average. And that’s fine, but the people who stand out are the ones who make a mark, who innovate and discover, who learn the freedom of exploration and invention.

Take all of our digital publishing nuts and springs, bits and bolts and spread them out on the old table. Climb our ladder and look down and ask yourself:
“What can I build for subcompact publishing?”
We need this, perhaps?

You know who you are. You want to do it all and won’t let go of the controls, even for a moment. You want to please everyone and typically put your own needs on the back burner to do so. Perhaps you don’t see enough of your family, or your stress doesn’t allow you to enjoy the time you do have with them.
The key is to find the balance. Enjoy your life while you experiencing your adventurous journey.

Since I am not a computer (certain people think I am), attempting to multitask is a complete disaster. Right now I’m busy with Hasnah Bakery company profile, which I need in order for me to apply for a shop lot here in Seberang Jaya.
I am glad that I bought a DSLR earlier, and creating a PDF is now much easier for me, thanks to curaqion. But I need to make this fast, at least until next week, preferably by Monday. Why that fast? I need to finish up curaqion #3, remember? We got 8 or 10 more days to dateline.
Thing is, we are really busy. Both of us got our own job to prioritize and yet, we still love doing side projects in our free time (which is rarely during this time). We believe making something we love is better than making something that we’re told to. Nonetheless, we still need to work in order to live at this rate, haha..
Do what you love the most, and you will thank me later.

Got news from one of my friends this morning, the UPSR passing percentage for our school is 100%. This year, we only had one candidate. It is either 100% or 0% passing rate for us. Since no news is good news, the student didn’t want to continue his study in secondary school, which is a normal thing for them, but what-the-hell thing for most of us.
Most people will blame the teachers, the system, and of course, the government. But only a few would ask what really happened that drives the students to make the decision.
I pray that he will realize and change his mind by next year.

It is time to get serious.
Despite for not having a solid product or services, I do think that MentariWorks has such a cool logo, at least for me. But how about you guys?
Azraai once told me that MentariWorks should become an indie publishing house, which is great actually. However, curaqion is still new, and I really don’t want to ruin it by making it complicated. Better if we let it grow independently, I think.
But, what if MentariWorks become an indie clothing company? Will people wear shirts with MentariWorks logo on it? Crazy and a little too naive, I know.
But one thing for sure, I don’t want MentariWorks to ever become a web design & development company anymore. I just had enough.
Yes, this is just a rant. :-)

I need to go back to school on 24th December, so that sums things up. I got plenty of free time to work on everything.
Being busy is not an excuse for you to live an unhealthy life. Plan your time wisely. Make time for working out & other activities.
Food for thought.
Everything = Family & friends, curaqion, wedding, & Hasnah Bakery. In that order.

It is fun and exciting to work on this project.

The reason why most people thinks learning programming is really hard. Me included, what a shame.
