Today's paper

Well, what can I say about today's Macroeconomy paper? I'm glad I know most of the answer but still got confusion there. My health condition does no help either as I have a slight migraine and "bersin" for the whole 3 hours. 

Well, since I can't study during weekends as I'm working and karaoke night doesn't help either. Well now need to prepare for two more papers where I only can study on Sunday because I'm going to attend Pah's wedding in Terengganu. 

Well I'm quite excited about the trip as I can go shopping at Payang Market. The clothes there are beautiful and just want to get ready for Raya. 

Well, I try to study during this trip, if I can!

Pasar Payang, here I come!

Talent or not? That is the question...

Susan Boyle

I've just watch Susan Boyle's youtube video from Britain's Got Talent show. Wow seriously she can sing and it was a beautiful voice.So far around 100 million people already watch the video and now she is an instant celebrity.

Seriously looking at her appearance you will never thought that she can sing amazingly That show talents come in many different faces and physical. I know a friend who has a little bit of weight but can play sepak takraw and still can do the split on the air, seriously.

What is my hidden talent? So far I can't quite figure out yet, but let me tell you what I can't do:s

1. I can't draw - art and engineering drawing. The highest score for my art is C+. We need to draw "Gotong-royong di sekolah" and I drew this guy stiffly holding a broom and looking at the audience wearing hat. One of my friend commented that is one of the best picture I ever produce. Meaning that I never draw something pretty before. I took Engineering technical drawing in Form 4 & Form 5, I have no choice actually, whether you take engineering subject or accountancy and biology, of course i don't want to surgery with frog. During SPM I lost hope for the subject, and I though whatever happen, happen but thank god that I passed the subject.

2. I can't see 3-D picture - for some reason I'm not able to see 3-d pictures. One of my friends used to have a 3-D book and everybody take turn to borrow the book. When it it is my turn, I can't see a thing, they said there is a pirate ship and all I can see is the pattern. I tried everything like put the book right in front of my eyes and slowly bring it away from my face, not working. Open my eyes as big as I can, na'ah..so I just give-up. I still occasionally try to figure out on how to see the hidden picture still not avail, any tips anyone?

That are some of things that I can't do. I think I'm a average cook, I can cook spaghetti start from scratch not the sous comes from the can. I mean I can start from the minced meat to do the source with the tomatoes. I like to try new recipes but the problem is I'm lazy to cook as it cost more and take sometime too do it than just tapau from the gerai.

I'm good with the machine, paper stuck in the copy machines,both I'm the man, I mean the girl. Anything about Excel, I can do the most of the formulas. I'm an avid map reader. If you are looking for a team mate for Amazing Race, call me plus I can drive manual. But don't ask me how to go back to the previous place as I can arrive the new place based on the printed Google map but sometimes I lost on the way
back from the place. Last time, I went to visit centre in Klang and on the way back I lost and almost reach West Port, I thought there will be a U-turn as I go along but noooo. I only one stop away reaching to the seaside.

I do sing in karaoke as with my student card, I do have to pay less than normal charges. Yes, I'm abusing my student card although I'm not a very good student as my exam is less than 6 days away but I'm happily writing my blog. I should stop now.

Bye bye Grissom

Last night, finally in CSI he annouced that he is leaving. I was so shock. I mean I knew he is leaving the show but still…I found it’s hard to believe. This is one of the only show that I never missed a single episode and still exciting after 9 seasons. Last time, I do watch Lost but seriously I’m kind of lost already. Heroes? well becomes zero to me so I just waited for the marathon and watched them in one day. Although I do watch other 2 CSI but so far the original one is the best. Gil Grissom is my favourite character as well as Greg Sanders.

He is the kind of boss that you’re looking for. He has a lot of wisdom, kind of funny and he is kind of mentor to both Greg and Hodges. He is very serious with his work that make him “politically deaf” as he doesn’t care to suck-up to others and just do his own work. He makes working with corpse and bugs seems so cool. If I don’t have a phobia on blood, I bet I want to become a forensic expert like him.

Of course my favourite episodes featuring the miniature killer, which is chilling and you can’t wait to know who is the miniature killer is. His favourite quote is “dead can’t speak for themselves”. I also like his relationship with Sara Sidle. I think they look cute together. He likes to ride rollercoaster (like I am, after being force, of course) and sensitive if the victim is children or teenagers

I can’t wait to see him for the last time next week. But I guess he leaving the show while he was on top to rekindle with Sara. Boy, I’m sure going to miss his witty sense and his bug knnowledge. So, bye Gil Grissom…hope to see you as guest star in CSI again.

Feel like kicking my a**

It started on Saturday morning, a day before my last class for this semester. I already my law assignment, just waited to be printed. I'm quite happy with it as I though I've done the best that I can.  So now what I have to do is to print out Macro home test that my instructor just send out by e-mail at 12am and to do Macro assignment.  So, I wondering where do I have to go to pringt both assignmnet and home test? At first I went out to buy my lunch at Bangsar's McDonald. I try to look around there wondering would there a be a printing shop or something but failed. I should have known better as that area is a "bangsar kaya" area not like my place"bangsar mioskin" where you can get a burger for RM 1.50 (used to be RM1) at pasar malam. Of course most people there and laptop and computer with printer. If there "kurang kaya" there will go to Starbucks, buy a cup or two of lattes and use the free wifi. So i thought I just try again at my place. Luckily or( unlucky) for me there's a digital image shop near the 7E that I can print them but it will cost me RM 1 per sheet and mind you it is black and white printing. I though what a heck, I desperate already. 

Unfortunately she can only print the home test as the law assignment I forgot to save in Microsoft Word format. Yes, I used a free software, Open Office as a substitute for microsoft office which i think is very useful and free as to install microsoft office home addition I need to fork-up more money which is I have a little right now. So I thought I will come back around 6pm to print it again.

I went home eat my lunch and busy working with the home test. After a little break, I stop for a while for Hannah Montana. I know what everybody think but seriously the girl can act and the show is very funny. Then I taught I want to continue to do the test and just print the assignment after 6.30pm as I thought the shop usually close at 8pam or something. Imagine to my surpise when the shop closed already and it is only 6.45pm. Where the heck I have to go know. Two choices, Midvalley or KL Sentral. Well I don't want to drive to Midvalley looking for parking and pay RM 3 just to print 2 sheets of paper, so I thought better to go to KL Sentral.

Well, lucky for me, in KL Sentral there is a shop that we can print document and it only cost RM 0.40 per sheet for black and white printing. Then after that, the rain  start to pouring down and I was stuck in KL Sentral. I just mad at my self for not driving as I went there by train. I still haven't complete the home test, assignment and read for the law test tomorrow. So what do I do? Having my dinner day and praying the rain will stop soon as If I just go through the rain, my law assignment will be wet.

The rain stop, finally and come back at home around 8.30pm. I decided to skip the macro assignment as I do have 3 hours in afternoon before the class started. Then I stated to read the law book which occasionally my eyes went to tv wathing Saturday Night Live. The show is funny. Well I though maybe the whole class will plead for the instructor to have open book test, so I just stop and go to sleep.

First class, Law. I found out actually I 've a wrong question and immediately try to do 5 minuted before the class. When the lecturer when in, I went to her to address her my problem and she just look my two pieces of assignment and start to blabbering how some people (meaning me) didn't listen what she has saying in the class. She shows my assignment as "what not to do during the final exam". Some of my classmate actually do the 2 questions assigment in 10 pages front and back with the colourful cover and binds. Then it hit me, what was I thinking, I wasn't thinking as student at all, I'm thinking as a working adult. During my student year last time I did do my assignment my coulourful printing cover and binding. I guess I just forgot. Actually while she is blabbering I was standing in front and actually I didn't feel shame at all, I feel relief that I know this before final exam, imagine if I did the answer during that time?

Then we have a quiz and a test which is without open book. Great, I've said. I'm screwed!. Actually, I can't think anymore as I fell like really want to kick myself for the assignment. Test is one question with 100 marks and Quizzes with 5 questions, 10 marks per question.
After 15 minues watching all the students staring at the questions with blank espression, she said that we can open the text book. Me looking at the questions again doing the mistakes by answering the quiz and being thought the lesson just now, so I elaborate  the answer as long as I can with the example of cases and only manage to aanswer 2 questions only while for the 100 marks question I only manage to answer I think around 10% only as I miscalculated the time given. 

Seriously, I can't imagine what is my carried mark for law, if I can get 20 marks I willl be happy already although I need to study super extra hard for my final. I really feel that I need to score in law paper as a revenge. Then finally, the lecturer gives me a second chance to do the assignment but need to send on that day. Still during my Statistics class I can't really concentrate as I can't let go wht just happen. I knew I could do better in the test and Quiz. 

As fo Macro assignment, still I can't completed for one page as I under underestimate the number of questions. Finally, I submitted without the last page as the class started already the lecturer asking for it already.

On Sunday night, I stayed up to 2am doing the assignment as I was like copying the text books with all the cases and and it is quite hard as I already sleepy. Finally manage to e-mail the assignment after 2.30am and I do thing the laptop and broadband that I've got on tha week are the blessing from god. I don't know what to do if I don't own them.

I know it is quite long but I think the moral of the story is stop lagging the works. All the assignments was given like two weeks ago and I just thought I can do all of them in 2 days. One of my resolution this year is to get dean list as I never been one. I did almost get last time during my student year, so I really need to study hard for the 3 papers. This is one of part of my life that I can control na do domething about it. So wish me luck and especially will power as I really need both of them.

My trip to KK

Well, it has been so long since I updated my blog. Why? Maybe because I'm quite busy nowadays since I better write reports than updating blogs if you know what I mean.

So I've been offered to travel to KK to support new centre, well, at first I quite hesitate as I'm really don't want to give PO to public as I'm quite shy or I would say, "pemalu orangnya" but since this is the only state I've in Malaysia I've never been, I'm thinking what the heck.

Since I'm going alone, I though it would be a great adventures, nevertheless it is. I arrived at KK airport around 10pm and waiting for my luggage for almost 20 minutes. I'm quite worried as it is quite late and I'm a girl and alone. The CSI effect comes to me.

The taxi driver was driving very fast. Seriously, he never stop at the roundabout to peek or something just go through like nobody business. I'm glad I get to the hotel safely.

My hotel situated near the shopping mall and the room is soooooo cold, seriously. It is 22 celcious and it is still cold like in the freezer. My hands felt almost numb as I keep playing solitire on the company laptop which somehow can't connect to the internet. 

The staff there quite sweet trying to figure out what is wrong with the connection. He tried to change the network wire, plug-in and plug-out and even take off the connection plug out of the wall and inspected. They never suspect that actually it is the laptop problem which is really frustrating.

I didn't manage to anywhere except to work as I don't know where to go. I did go around the shopping mall, and I would say it is more standard than midvalley and a little bit lower class than The Garden. They do have a free bus to the town and when I tried to register, it is full already. Luckily, because that afternoon it was raining like cats and dogs and for sure I unable to comeback to hotel before going to work.

Overall, it was quite interesting journey. I manage to buy some brooches for my sister, my umi and myself at Pasar Filipino.  The crystal there is quite cheap and I wasn't thinking when I purchased the things because they all beautiful although when I get there, no electricity at that place. But it is ok, so I know which crystal that bling the most without the help from the lamp.

I would definetely comes here again to go around town and snorkeling at Sipadan Island. Just need to find a right time and right partner as nowadays everybody save their money for weddinglah or too busy datinglah and all sort of excuse they can thing of.

So, I guess I will updating my blog frequently as I already purchased a new laptop with celcom broadband. I think it is a need as I'm a student now and I can't rely for office to do my assigment (which I never did, honestly).

So, keep on blogging.

P/S: I was quite sad that one of my favourite AI, Megan contestant was out today. She is sooo beautiful and quite unique.
