An SPM student was sponsored a new iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil after his Twitter post went viral and caught the attention of Muar MP, Syed Saddiq.
On 30 December 2020, 17-year-old Danish Haiqal Shajehan, who is also a student of the Royal Military College (RMC), tagged Syed Saddiq in a post and jokingly asked for an iPad. This comes after Syed Saddiq managed to raise more than RM380,000 for poor families in Muar after vowing to go bald.
“I’m not even asking for a laptop, just a secondhand iPad would do. Hahaha just kidding,” Danish wrote.

In the post, he also included a screenshot of an article by mStar that tells the story of how he uses an iPhone 7 to make study notes after his hardcopy notes kept getting wet due to the rain.
“I used to always make notes on paper, but they always get wet due to the rain. So I do it virtually, more people can benefit,” he said.
“I used to use my friend’s iPad at school, but now that I am at home, I can only use my phone.”
Danish added that it is challenging making notes on his phone as the screen is very small. However, he said that the end result allows him to review the lesson more efficiently.
“Usually a note takes more than two hours. It’s difficult because my hands are sweating,” he said, adding that digital notes are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
“Before this, when making notes on paper, I used a lot of colourful pens. Now I don’t have to use a pen, and it is unlimited.”
After his post went viral, Syed Saddiq reached out to Danish and took him out for a meal at SANTAN, Midvalley before buying him an iPad Pro.
“Keep up the good work. “Serve to lead”, which is the motto of RMC. I do not ask for much, just continue to make ‘power’ notes for poor students,” said Syed Saddiq, who is also a former student of RMC.
Danish told WORLD OF BUZZ that he was very excited during the meet up with Syed where they both talked about their experiences as Old Puteras. (Old Putera (OPs) are former students of the Royal Military College).
“I was so excited at that time. We shared a lot of our experiences because both of us are Old Putera. We talked about his experience being a Putera during his intake and I shared my own experience,” he told WORLD OF BUZZ.
“My first impression of him was that I thought he was quite short but yeah, he was tall.”
Following the meetup, Syed Saddiq reveals in a post that he bought KFC for his fellow brothers at RMC.
“RMC made me who I am today. I am eternally grateful to all the staff and teachers,” Syed wrote.
Keep up the good work, Danish! Your notes are truly amazing!
