Another year have passed making me and my blog 1 year older. I started this year with lots of hope and excitement. I even made 10 new year resolution (See post new year resolution! ). Before going to compare the end result with expected result, lets me tell you some major events that happened to me in 2013.

First I mourn for those whom we lost during this year. I specially mourn for my friend Asif’s sister, My friend Sifat’s and Murad’s father. I also mourn for father of my colleague Hasnain Suny, my uncle and my other relatives who have passed away in this year. Inna Lillahe wa inna Ilaihi Rajiun ( To Allah we belong and to Him is our return). May Allah bless your soul to Jannah and give us strength to bear and overcome this loss. I also welcome those little angels who made us feel blessed.

Now it’s something to tell about my blogging. I rarely posted blog in this year. I only posted 12 blogs in this year. it seems i almost gave up the blogging habit. But i always wanted to write blog. Now I can hardly manage time for blogging. But I promise i will write lots of blog in this year. I have so many things to write about.

Now Let me give you a glimpse of how 2013 was for me:

  • I visited Chittagong and Cox’s Bazaar with my friends and family.
  • I went to Mymensingh for the first time for audit purpose during March.
  • I sat for ICMAB exam 3rd time in April
  • I have completed 1 of 3 years of articleship of CA in June.
  • I got an increment in my monthly allowance from my firm for completing 1 year of articleship.
  • I attended my Convocation of Bachelor Degree from North South University.
  • I sat for ICAB exam for the first time after lots of suspense with the exam.
  • I visited Dinajpur for the first time for audit purpose during August.
  • I was selected for EMBA admission at AIS department of Dhaka University.
  • I turned 24 on August and mourned for growing older.
  • Result of ICAB published on August where I passed 5 subjects out of 7 subjects.
  • I sat for ICMAB exam for 4th time.
  • I got admitted in EMBA of Dhaka University and started first semester.
  • I bought a new mobile phone on September
  • I celebrated Eid-ul-Ajha at my native village with my friends and family.
  • I visited Mymensing again on October.
  • My father retired on October  and reappointed on November for 1 year.
  • My relationship was almost broken in November.
  • I sat for ICAB exam for second time in December but all exam was not finished during that month.
  • I lost my new mobile phone after 4 month of use.

Looks like lots of exciting and tragic things happened to me during this year. Now let me compare my resolution for 2013 with actual result.

1. It was my plan to be more religious during this year. I don’t know how to measure this but I don’t think I have achieved the level I wanted to reach.

2. I wished to strengthen my bond with family, friends and loved one. I am sure i certainly did, at least compared to last year. My relationship is now almost 3 year. We had faced couple of odd times and overcame those odds.

3. My 3rd resolution was to enhance time management skill. I don’t think I fulfilled this resolution but I am sure I was almost there.

4. My estimate was to complete 400 marks of ICMAB during this year. But I have completed 300 marks. Now I have completed total of 900 marks to be an ACMA. In my defence, I have not sat for December eaxm of ICMAB. I am sure, I will cross my target in this attempt.

5. My utmost wish was to complete PS(K) level, which is the 1st level of ICAB. In this year i have sat for only once and another exam is ongoing. In my first attempt I have completed 5 out of 7 subjects. In Sha Allah, I will complete rest 2 subjects in on going attempt.

6. I had a dream of having lots of money. So I wanted to grow saving habits. But i don’t think I grew this habit at all.

7. About the weight…..I didn’t lose any weight, rather i gained some. 😦

8. I missed this resolution last year. So I fully achieved it. 😀

9. To be good and expert in my task was my resolution. I tried my best to work on that. Alhamdulillah, I have some improvements in this side. But I’m not that much good or expert on anything yet.

10. I don’t think I have any improvement on “keeping the good habits and giving up bad habits”.

If I critically analysis my performance, I think I will score very poorly. But I sure will continue working on those resolution. Now it’s time for new resolution for new year.

1. I will write blogs and poems more often.

2. I will visit some new places.

3. I will visit my relatives, friends and loved one.

4. I will complete Professional Stage (Application) level of ICAB.

5. I will complete Level 1 & 2 of ICMAB and complete more than total of 1200 marks out of 2100 marks.

6. I will do or learn or own something new in 2014.

7. I will be more disciplined and well planned in financial matters.

8. I will finish at least 5 courses of EMBA in 2014.

9.  I will try to be a better person.

10. I will continue working on my 2013 resolution.

I don’t know how much of it I will meet but I sure will try my best. That’s it for this blog. I don’t have anything else to write about this topic. Wishing you all a very happy and wonderful year. Please pray for me. Happy New Year!!!

Happy Birthday to Mobashra

Happy Birthday to Mobashra!

It was summer 2008 when I first saw you in MKT202 class. Again in fall, I saw you in ECO134 class. We did classes for 8 months and yet we hardly talked.

In spring 2009 i joined NSU YES!. In the orientation program i saw you again. I found you in facebook from club’s group. I added you and started to communicate on regular basis.

It didn’t take much time before we started chatting in messenger. And that is when we became friends. As days went by, our friendship grew stronger. Since then we did many things together. We share so many memories.

You were and are always helpful to me. Till the last day at university, you helped me. You pushed me to where I’m right now. I’m grateful to have you as my friend. Soon you will graduate and start a whole different life. I know you will do just fine. And I wish you good luck.

And for today on you birthday, I wish you a very delightful, enjoyable and memorable birthday. Happy birthday Mobashra! Happy birthday to you, my friend.

Thanks for the party invitation. I will not miss it for my life. See you in few hours. He he he….

Pohela boishakh 1

Image via Wikipedia

Today is the first day of Boishakh (First month of Bangla year) . Which means today is the first day of Bangla New Year! In every culture, New year is celebrated with joy and festive mood. Same thing happens during Bangla new year.
From the early morning people get together wearing red & white panjabi and other cultural dresses for the “Mongol Shova Jatra” which is a procession of wishing good things to everyone. During this procession people bear different cultural symbols and other things in order to make the procession look festive. So bright and color is present in everywhere.

Different cultural event is organized throughout the day to celebrate the “Pohela Boishakh” (1st day of boishakh). Concert is one of them. The first song that is  sung is “Esho he Boishakh” (Come, Boishkh) to receive the Boishakh. Another important part of celebration is eating Panta vat a traditional food in Bangladeshi villages.

I had seen people taking preparation to celebrate the Bangla new year. But I had no preparation. I had only one plan and that is to study 14 cases and make myself prepare for the Strategic Management (MGT489) final exam. But last night my Aunt gifted me a nice red Panjabi which make me to think of attending the new year celebration. Also my friend requested me to join with then in the afternoon. So I decided to study in the morning and attend the celebration at noon.

Though I didn’t join in the celebration in the morning, I enjoyed the Jol khabar (one kind of food with sweet, Yogurt, banana & rice) in the morning and Panta vat at launch. 😀 I was at Dhaka University Campus with my friends enjoying ourselves and celebrating the day. I was there till the evening. It was too awesome.

Well, now I’m back to the point where I were. Got to study hard to make up the lost time…:( I’m sure I’ll be able to cover all the chapters and cases by due time. Just pray for me.

Oh! I forgot to wish you guys! Wishing you Happy Bangla New Year 1418 ! শুভ নববর্ষ (meaning, happy new year)!

Wishing Happy Birthday to my friend Sazid Raihan

 

Today was my Friend Sazid’s birthday. So before writing anything else, let me wish him once again (as I already did it twice :P)  . Happy Birthday my friend!!!

We celebrated his birthday at Banani KFC . Well we means me, Zaman, Tihan, mahmud & his friend Fahad & Minhaj. Although Mobashra joined with us but she had to left for her problem. Also Tihan’s girlfriend Rakhi was there for a while.  It was a great party. It’s not possible to write everything here. Just know there was lots of fun, lots of photo sessions and also a little discussion on meshed potato.

There is good news. While in the party, our Nerd guru Anwar Zaman have developed a theory on birthday. I can’t resist myself from giving it here.  Zaman’s original theory on Birthday says –

“In the Birthday of great people there will be heavy rain,heavy storm will occur,all this thing happen because in this day sky lost it most valuable star.” [theory first published on : Zaman’s Facebook Status, September 28, 2010.]

Very much thankful to Sazid for the party and the great fun time I had. Also thankful for giving Zaman the opportunity to develop a great theory.

N.B. I enjoyed the moments with Mobashra while we were looking for the possible gifts for Sazid. She really have good choices. One thing I’ve learned is that I’m very bad at selecting birthday gifts. 😦
