Today I just browse for website to find any latest news. Even i'm now staying in Selangor, I'm keep reminding myself and my family that we are from Jerantut, Pahang Darul Makmur.

Every month (almost)since last 7 years, I will be at my dearest hometown; Kg. Batu Balai, Jerantut, Pahang to meet my father and other family members. 2-3 hours of journey to Jerantut for me is nothing compare to the feel when we reach in Jerantut.

Myself for example, I completed my higher secondary education in Sekolah Menengah Jerantut (Jerantut Secondary School) after finish my Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia (Malaysian Higher Certificate of Education). Then, I continue my studies in Universiti Utara Malaysia (Northern University of Malaysia) in Sintok, Kedah in Human Resource Management (HRM).

I then married with someone which also originated from Jerantut. Even when my wife is giving birth to my first son, we prefer him been delivered in Jerantut Hospital.

In Jerantut, we live in peaceful. Im being neighbouring to Chinese and Indian without any problems. We are sharing same school, football field and ect...
