For those who already follow my Twitter, you might already know that one of my uncles died of heart attack on the second day of Eid ul-Fitr. This is a newspaper report about him. This is just a remainder how in the God's will, everything lies. Even though it is the time of happiness in celebrating Eid ul-Fitr, we still need to remember that everything could happen in this world, no matter when and where. May God bless his soul. Amin.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police deputy internal security and public order director Datuk Jamaluddin Khalid died yesterday. He was 56.
Jamaluddin, who was in Johor to celebrate Hari Raya, collapsed in his hotel room.
He was taken to Kluang Hospital but attempts to resuscitate him failed.
Jamaluddin will, perhaps, be best remembered for his association with motorcycles, both as a lawman and as an aficionado of big bikes.
A former president of the Superbikers Association of Malaysia (SAM), he spearheaded a campaign against illegal racing, together with then federal traffic chief Datuk Supian Amat when he was Supian's deputy in 1998.
They went on a two-week campaign which saw 54 hellriders being slapped with jail sentences.
He went on the offensive against illegal racers again when he became the city's public order and traffic chief in 2004.
Jamaluddin's previous posting was as the Sabak Bernam district police chief, preceded by stints as the Petaling Jaya deputy chief and Selangor deputy traffic chief in the late 1990s.
He is survived by his wife, Datin Posiah Abu Bakar, and three children.
