Attention to all my passengers

Assalamualaikum to all my readers.This is the first post of this blog,so basically this entry is going to touch on a little about myself and the blog concept itself. Firstly about me, my name is Muhammad Iqbal bin Abu Bakar and I am 21 years of age. I was born in Kuala Lumpur and grew up in Klang valley.

I spent my secondary school at Sekolah Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Klang. Honestly I am not the brightest of all students and I even have a lots of disciplinary problem back then,but I still work hard and manage to score 5As in PMR and 5As in SPM. To be frank, I was such a bad student and a naughty kid at my younger age.When I was 7,my step sister and I set our house on fire and get a serious beating from my dad. At 10, I even ran away from home once,but only for about 3 hours and only manage to get myself to the soccer field in front of my friend's house. Then i decided to return home as I was so hungry. The sad part is, nobody noticed that I was missing. At school, I skipped classes(because its fun) and does a lot of other terrible things. It is only when i was in form 4 that I started to be more mature and start to think about life seriously.I realized how childish I was before. I never looked back since and promised myself to be a better person.

I don’t really have a specific ambition. It is because I am still learning myself and there are so many things that I want to do in this life. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have a vision though. When I was a kid I always wanted to become a writer. That might had to do with the way I read some pretty good books and realized how their thoughts can change people’s life. These people find their channel to express their opinion and I was so astonished with their dogma and belief about life. So I said to myself that I can do the same. I want to have a say on how I see things in life and share it with all people. I know that expressing my thought is not an easy task. Sometimes it felt like there is no way I can interpret and converts what I have in mind into words. In this head my thoughts are deep and I want people to know something that they don’t. It is always a great feeling when you know that you can affect people optimistically in their life. So as kid, I carry this dream of mine hoping that someday I will able to pursue it. That is a little bit about me and my background studies.

As for now, I am going to talk about the concept of this blog. Bus of life. That is the blog title and also the concept I am going to use for my blog. Basically, I want to portrait this blog as a bus, myself as the driver and all readers are the passengers. It is quite simple.I want the passengers to hop in my bus and I as the driver, will take my passengers through a wonderful journey. The journey here carry a meaning of all my coming posts and I will take you to places that you never known of its existence.

Personally, I think that my way of writing is quite unique compared to most blogger as I always see things in life differently. In other words, I am offering a point of view that is from different angle from most people. I know that my grammar are dreadful,but please ignore it and pay extra attention on the content. I don't want language to be the barrier in speaking our mind. I have quite a number of blogs before this one and each of them have their own concept. For the subject Thinking and Writing Strategies however, I chose to use the bus concept because I want my readers to feel more closely related to the blog. I also want my readers to get more excited when visiting this blog,as if there is an environment here in this blog and they even play a role in it. I use a lot of other element such as pictures and other widget to add to the bus concept. The other settings like comments,links and posts also will be named as something related to a bus.So to all my passengers, please take a seat. I am about to start the engine,hold on tight as I am going to take you for a journey that will left you breathless.


  1. yeah.. i should buy a ticket!!! i want to be a part of this journey dude..
    seriously your post is interesting.. it keep people curious! who the hell are you actually!

  2. salam,
    frankly, when i first saw you (i could hardly remember when was it), my mind quickly defined you as some kind of the A. Samad Said's clone. I just don't know why. You're unique in your own way. I've been attracted to what u've wrote about the language thingy. Yes, i do agree that we should not let the language to stop us from entrepret our minds to others. We're all in the learning process. So, don't be shy and always try our best to speak. Practise will always make perfect, dude. So, just speak on!
