Recently I have found out that my father is written my muslim name in his handphone contacts. I don't have any idea how he know that since I have hide it as well.
Family always blame on me, they said I have long forgotten how they raise me up. I am only remain silent. My father even said he lost one son already, it's time to adopt a "anak angkat". I don't know they found him already or not, I am just keep on live my life as muslim.
Everytime I ask my father meet me at restaurant, we are having lunch together at mamak stall or malay's restaurant. His eyes are fulfilled with emptiness on me.. I know what in his mind, just like how he critics Islam a lots since I was small.
"Do you know why everyone needs religion?" My mind flashed back those old times, while I was form 4. He love to chat a lot with me, I always listen to what he said silently. I nodded for waiting his answer.
"Religion may let us feel safe and hold firm to it, so we won't stray away and believing in other religion. Our heart need to hold firm with it so we are not lost." He insisted.
I am fully understand why my father said like that, He is very religious in Buddhism religion.. But I also have a question deep in my heart. "What about if what you embrace now is the wrong path, but you still insist to walk on the wrong path till forever?"
The question never come out of my mouth.
When I have found the right path, I realise that the path I chosen is long forgotten by peoples. It's what Allah swt showed, and it's even mentioned in every prayer's Doa.
Tunjukilah kami jalan yang lurus.
(Surah Al Fatihah Ayat 6)
I am walking alone at the Islam path among my family.
Whenever someone ask me:"Are you embraced Islam together with family?" I would just smile and say no, it's self decision. Among all the relatives and family member, I am the only one who embrace Islam.
I am walking alone, I don't care what peoples critics about me.
I know it's the right path, and I never give up in protect my faith and heart. No matter how hard is the path I am passing through, I know I have found the path of light.
When I realize Allah swt is looking over me and everyone, thus I am not alone anymore.

What frustrated a lot nowadays is do reverted muallaf need to change IC? EPF? Bank Account? From what I know, first they need go to Pejabat Agama and filling Borang Memeluk Islam. Then Pejabat will give a Kad Akuan Masuk Islam. However every state's Kad Islam is different. Like my Perak one is stated Nama Islam, Nama Asal, No. KP and Tarikh Islam.
About IC, Pejabat Agama Perak only advised me go to change IC on my own. Which mean OPTIONAL... Pejabat Agama does not change any muallaf's IC forcefully through their Jabatan, but it's for those muallaf self initiative to do it. Of course there's many people have to hide their Islam identity as they may get fired by employer or being thrown by family.
Tidak ada paksaan dalam agama (Islam), sesungguhnya telah nyata kebenaran (Islam) dari kesesatan (kufur). Oleh itu, sesiapa yang engkar kepada Taghut, dan ia beriman kepada Allah, maka sesungguhnya ia telah berpegang kepada tali yang teguh, yang tidak akan putus. Dan (ingatlah), Allah Maha Mendengar, lagi Maha Mengetahui.Islam does not wipe away our name. It's still stated Nama ASAL as acknowledgement. The best proof is the Kad Islam above. But most people have been misunderstood about it.
(Al-Baqaraah ayat 256 )
From what I know now, there's a way for muallaf to embrace Islam silently without change IC first. But as for marriage with Muslim, so far I don't have any information about that..
