On Monday morning October 29, 2012, I went to the IKIM office.
I was standing at one of the corridors connecting the IKIM offices.
I went there because my father was going to be interviewed on IKIM.fm’s Warna Pagi, talking about the Seminar Dakwah Nasional.
While waiting, I was introduced to Aunty Siti and Uncle Suffian.
At the IKIM.fm radio station. From left is Uncle Suffian (in front of him is me), Kashah, Kafah and Aunty Siti.
I was given a chance to be in the studio where they recorded the radio program.
And luckily, I was invited to stay in the studio until the end of the live-recording of the interview.
Inside the studio, from left is Aunty Siti, Uncle Suffian, me and my father.
Aunty Siti and Uncle Suffian were very nice and friendly and I really enjoyed meeting them.
I hope to be able to go there again and get interviewed on one of IKIM.fm’s programs like my father

A huge fire destroyed at least 50 homes in a flooded neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens was reported around 11 p.m. Monday.
More than 190 firefighters tried to stop the fire in the Breezy Point section.
The flood water was chest high on the street, and firefighters had to use a boat to make rescues.

Superstorm Sandy made landfall at 8 p.m. just south of Atlantic City, about 120 miles southwest of Manhattan which was already mostly under water while its world-famous Boardwalk was washed away earlier in the day.
It slammed into the New Jersey coastline with 80 mph winds Monday night and hurled an unprecedented 13-foot surge of seawater at New York City.
At least 10 U.S. deaths and one death in Canada were blamed on the storm.
It was a very big storm that an AccuWeather meteorologist said Sandy “is unfolding as the Northeast’s Katrina”.
Authorities reported a record surge more than 13 feet high at the Battery at the southern tip of Manhattan, from the storm and high tide combined.
The center the storm, a combination of Sandy, a wintry system from the West and cold air streaming from the Arctic, threatened to knock out the underground network of power, phone and high-speed Internet lines that are the lifeblood of America’s financial capital.
The New York Daily News reported that water was six feet deep outside its offices in lower Manhattan.
City officials evacuated neighbors of a 90-story super luxury apartment building under construction after its crane partially collapsed in high winds, prompting fears the entire rig could crash to the ground.

Serious flooding was also reported miles north in Greenwich Village and Chelsea.
The facade of a four-story Manhattan building in the Chelsea neighborhood crumbled and collapsed suddenly, leaving the lights, couches, cabinets and desks inside visible from the street.
No one was hurt, although some of the falling debris hit a car.
