For the past few weeks until 6 December we was instructed by UTM to work from home due to Johor Bahru district has been announced as red zone area. Actually I do prefer to work at office rather than at home. Hopefully the Covid cases are getting better and we are able to back to our normal life. Amin
It was declared by our Prime Minister that starting from 9 November until 8 December all states excluded Pahang, Perlis, and Kelantan will be declared PKPB. UTM had announced that all staff needs to presume their work from home and to check in the attendance daily by using UTM smart. Hence, automatically as a lecturer I need to conduct my classes online and attended all the meetings and web binar series online. It is quite difficult for us to apply this new norm but hopefully, everything will be under control. Pray to Allah SWT may COVID-19 resolved and all the students will be able to go back to the faculty and attend the class physically. I had to prepare all my things and my home office at a proper place and decoration to ensure the mood to work from home will be revitalized.
It was a role for every lecturer in IPTS and IPTA to have the list of students as a mentee. For this semester, the faculty had assigned me, 18 new students, to monitor. The role of the academic advisor is to ensure that they will groom and monitor the students in terms of academics, personality, and skills.

Today, our FREE course discussed the methods of Microsoft Powerpoint 365 by using video. We have learned many option and content to enhance our power point slide presentation. Thank you Dr Azmirul and Dr Grace for organizing the event. Thumbs up.
I went to Forest City, Gelang Patah, JB last week for a family gathering. Sometimes we need to have some space to rest our mind and energy after busy with our workload at office. The place was nice and pleasant with beautiful scenery. Of course, I will plan our trip to Forest City again.

Assalamualaikum everyone. On the 3rd August 2020 I had registered myself as a new lecturer at AHIBS, UTM. I am very grateful to be given the opportunity to work as a government university lecturer with the title of research university (RU). This is the opportunity that I ‘ve been waiting for so long after my 8 years of services with private college and university.
I hope I can build my career here until my retirement age and deliver the best for Malaysia’s education industry.
