Students strange behaviour

Just another 2 days we will usher the coming of the New Year. In UM, most of our uni student will surely remember the "University Malaya" Big Logo with the Year figure boldly situated below it.

It's rather strange that the place has been there for the whole year and the students rarely go there for a photo shoot. It is always in the last week of the year, then you will see they throng the place like tourists throng KLCC or the eiffel tower. =p

Well, maybe it's because people normally take the place for granted for the whole year. Only when the number 2005 will be replaced by 2006, then people will only start to appreciate it. It's strange that this always happen also in our life. Have you notice that we take for granted for many things in life, until when it disappear, then we started to regret for not appreciate it?

Do appreciate for the things in life. Maybe some are very simple things, but do appreciate it!

A Nice Story with moral values

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge
things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look
at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in
summer, and the youngest son in the fall.

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe
what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted.
The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise.

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so
sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping
with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they
had each seen but only one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season,
and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come

from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring,
the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall.


Moral lessons:


Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest.

Don't judge life by one difficult season.

Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later

Last Basketball Match...

Tonight will be UM 12th college team last basketball match. Some situation has emerged there as we started to play the game.

We realized that some of our players didn't show up at the basketball court, so we only have a total of 5 players to play the whole game. No substitutes and no replacement for the injured and the tired one. The situation become very tensed and the players are in a very tired condition when the game was at the 2nd quarter. Chiew, the couch has to use the "time up" tactic efficiently to give time for our players to rest. But that is not enough to fully recharge the players energy.

However, all the players in the court have tried their best and showed a good sportsmanship throughout the whole game. In the end, we still lose..But we lose with dignity and respect.

The players that didn't show up at the event should earlier inform the leader, couch or manager so that re-arrangement can be made. They really should learn to be a team player, and a discipline one.

Movie night out--Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire


I watched Harry Potter at the GSC Mid Valley tonight. The movie really has visualise the scene for the dragon fight, but it did have "cut" out most of the chapters in the Harry Potter book. I was a bit dissapointed that the competition actually ended in the rush and I was like, HUH???

But anyway, overall it still is an interesting watch as you will see Hadrig first love with the giant teacher and also the first apperance of Mad Eye Moody, also not forgetting the main bad character Lord Voldermort.

If you haven't read the novel, then you might watch this 2 and a half hour movie to catch up on what's happening in the Hogwarts School. I still recommend the novel after you watch the movie, because the movie has left out the part when Hermione established the Elf Protection Club and how she stand up for the elves. =p So you can use some imaginations here. =p

Windows Vista Beta 1 is OUT!!!

Maybe I was not very aware of the update of the popular OS of windows Vista. But last few days when I stopby microsoft website, I found out that the Vista Beta 1 is available for download.

As my PC now is quite an indispenasble tool for my master project, so now I rather not try out the BETA version to save a lot of trouble from being re-format PC, and create a new partition for the OS.

But, as curiosity grows, I tried out the "skin" of Windows Vista, and I might say, I really love it! Attached photos is the GUI of the my OS interface..

KL Open Basketball Competition

Tonight is my first night watching 12th college team compete in the competition. Even though our team members all have final exams to deal with, they all show a very good sportsmanship. All the players have tried their best. I can see that most of them lack of training, some didn't have the accuracy to shoot the long range ball.. But in the all, they didn't give up hope.

Even though our team lose, but they have tried their best, and they have played a very good and interesting game. All the best, and try to practice on the shooting.

The Public Lecture

Today I went for a public lecture from speaker President SHIH of NUS. He talked about how to steer the university to the direction for globalization and also about moving forward. His lecture is indeed inspiring and fresh, especially the way he convey his message to the audiences. He gave a lot of examples in life that can be used to visualize the strategies and plans that NUS has been doing so far.

unfortunately, during the Q & A session, I was really embarrassed by the Malaysian Audiences that asked stupid questions, and some are not even questions... Honestly, I also don't know what is the question??? There is one PhD lecturer that really got on my nerve, he is actually arguing the "illustrate" examples: like green house in the forest and "beautiful mind" movie with president prof SHIH. But that is just merely examples to strengthen his lecture..Nothing much..

This kind of people really reflect their childish, immature mind. I would to give you people a piece of advice: Next time when got a chance to ask questions in public lecture, try to prepare before asking, and ask relevant questions only. Please...You are representing the Malaysian top university lecturers, if you cannot improve our dignity, try to uphold it ok?

My PC is back Online

After about 12 hours of ordeal, my PC is finally working back to normal and online! Well, just don't ask me whether I'm using the genuine Windows XP because I don't know... or I pretend not to know. Haha...

BTW, will share a story after attending the public lecture in UM from President SHIH from NUS.

Money, is it really important? Is it really a life changing factor?

Perhaps today quite free at part time, I suddenly have a thought and question for myself..

Is money really important in our life? Some might say yes, in the sense that in this reality world, everything has to be paid by money, either in credit card or cash.

But does money buy faith and trust? And can one buy happiness and health? Some might argue that if we got money, we sure can buy things that lead to happiness. But I'm sure that happiness "created" by money can't last very long..

But all of us can't deny money did change the way we live... We work and work and work just to make sure that we earn money... For what? Is it merely for food? This is also true, because come to think of it, we ain't practicing barter system any more, like i trade my rice for your mutton...hehe..

But is that all? Or do we need the money just to pay off the bills?

I, myself also very confused by all these... Yes, I need money to buy food, pay utilities bills, and to buy a hand phone!!! But is all these will be a good enough reason to have lots of money...Well, i might say that's not the reason... My reason to earn and save money is to have a stability in life and have a good living.. Not worrying whether I will have enough money to buy food or not, or whether have enough allowance for my parents and loves one...

Mmm.. now that I've definite the meaning of why earning money, How do I earn like Bill Gates leh?? or at least like Vincent Tan??

Well, this blog site really come in handy expecially when you want to travel to Penang island or vice-versa. In the blog, there are 4 cameras that take live snapshots of the traffic condition on the bridge. But there are only 3 cameras that functional when I visited the blog though.. Anyhow, it's still very useful. =p

Build to order notebooks in Malaysia??

Build to order (BTO) notebooks have started to take off in our own shore!! I just read this through The Star.

It's rather an interesting thing as you can fully customise your hardware in your laptop, like DIY PC. It advertised that the whole unit started from RM3,000. It's quite an competitive price for a notebook. Well, if the deal is really good, build quality and customer service, then I think the market sure will accomodate this BTO notebooks.

Check out the website to know more: www.btonotebooks.com.my

the midnight story

this is my first attempt to write a blog or should i call diary of myself... =p

It's kinda feeling a bit weird because I create this using my close friend pc rather mine pc which is just a few steps away.. But what to do...my pc didn't hv the LAN line to connect yet... sigh...
Anyway, this is the first time in my uni life to surf the net in the mid night... It brings a feeling of dejavu from my high school life. Haha, for a lesson of history for you all, during 1997 in Malaysia we saw the internet dial=up boom. We all teenagers (now still is, mind you) are crazy bout icq and irc. We can actually chat about virtually everything on the net till late in the night..or should i say late in the morning 4am??

Now very long time didn't do it..until now. Well, if you tell us that you have a blog in 1997, we all may though you may want to say u have a dog, just that u pronounce it wrongly. Haha..
Well, things have been change a lot lately.. not only the technology, the people around us too... My friends around have started to work, some even have planning to start a family... some accidently have a baby ( just kidding dude! ).. some have married. It really makes me feel a bit nervous.

But i didn't rush to get all the things in life done quickly, I just wanna take it one step at a time.. Wanna make most of my moments in uni life to be the sweetest..
gee, i think my "essay" just sway away from the main title here. Terkeluar tajuk pula!!!
Well, goodnight and take care you all!!!

I will post more of stories and photos in the near future.. but not too near for my comfort la.. haha! =p
