Study Week: Balik Kolej + Last Episode Sungjae The Return of Superman

Ko Sungjae!

Hari rabu yang lepas Najihah balik kolej. Sebab hari Khamis esoknya ada kelas statistik. Pada mulanya nak balik hari selasa memandangkan hari Isnin sebelumnya dah balik rumah dari kelantan. Tetapi tak jadi sebab Najihah lambat kemas barang. Perempuan kan banyak nak kena pack. Faham-faham je la. Lagi-lagi jenis orang yang nak bawa balik semua barang macam Najihah. Kalau tak bawa balik mesti tak sedap hati. So, ibu yang tolong hantarkan Najihah.

 

Di sebelah kiri anda adalah gambar keadaan meja Najihah yang sebenar. Memang bersepah. Masa ini nak kemas balik buku yang bawa dari kampung. Di sebelah kanan anda pula gambar Najihah tengah makan nasi goreng cina. Masa ini lapar sangat. Disebabkan terlalu paksa diri habiskan nota, Najihah lupa nak beli makan petang itu. Alhamdulillah ada kudrat keluar bilik pergi kafe lepas maghrib. Semata nak penuhi perut yang lapar. 


Baby Najihah Ko Sungjae! Sungjae dah keluar Return of Superman. I will miss him. Dah besar dah dia. Najihah selalu ikut perkembangan Sungjae. He is a smart boy. Rasa macam nak ada anak. Eh! Hahaha just kidding. Episode last Sungjae dia rewind balik orang-orang yang pernah jumpa Sungjae seperti Alice, 2 orang pengemis dan ramai lagi. Najihah harap Sungjae dan keluarga dapat jumpa matlamat hidup yang sebenar dan berjaya dalam apa jua bidang pekerjaan yang dilakukan keluarga ini. Terima kasih  muncul dalam Return of Superman mengisi masa Najihah. Terima kasih menjadi ubat ketika Najihah stress belajar. Sungjae will always be my number 1 pick on the return of superman! <3

      Carousell’s in-app survey indicated 54% respondents declutter ahead of celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri

      More than 245,000 items were transacted this Hari Raya, with 67% of all items being preloved

Kuala Lumpur, 13 June 2019 – Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing classifieds marketplace, conducted an in-app survey that drew 1,724 respondents gather some insights into the traditional house cleaning or decluttering during Ramadan in preparation for the Hari Raya celebrations. 94% of the respondents said that house cleaning is an annual affair that forges a better relationship between family members.

Parents remained the key drivers to kickstart the cleaning with 35% of the respondents saying that decluttering is mainly initiated by their parents. Meanwhile, the remaining self-initiated cleaning (26%), led by a spouse (19%) or a sibling (19%).

Old clothing (96%), furniture (58%) and kitchen appliances (56%) were the top three categories of items that are usually replaced for the festive season.

“Disposal of unwanted and unused items is gradually reducing as Malaysians are more equipped with the knowledge of recycling and reselling these items on Carousell. While the number of disposed items remain relatively significant, we are encouraged to learn that more Malaysians are utilising our platform to give these items a new life, as well as to earn more during the festive season,” said Tang Siew Wai, Country Head of Carousell Malaysia.

Interestingly, while 28% of survey respondents said they would throw old unused items into the garbage or recycle bin, the majority of respondents (over 54%) said they sold unused items on Carousell while the balance said they would keep it in storage.

Among the top categories listed and transacted during this year’s Hari Raya celebration are women’s clothes, men’s clothes, bags and wallets, which took up a total of 107,077 listings and 40,563 transactions.

39% of those who sold on Carousell kept the money they earned into their savings, while almost 35% said they bought new Baju Raya. A little over 11% of respondents said they gave the money away as Duit Raya.

In early April, the platform launched its Mari Ber-Carousell digital campaign featuring local celebrities Aeril Zafrel and Wawa Zainal, to encourage Malaysians to declutter on Carousell in preparation for Hari Raya Aidilfitri where in less than three weeks, the campaign video garnered over 3.6 million views on YouTube.

“It is heartening to see that the festive season has been a strong driver to reducing waste, while earning some additional income. We encourage more Malaysians to get creative and make decluttering a tradition for every festive season,” Tang added.
