oh KL, how I loathe (love) you so!

I wrote this like 3 days ago, so you do the math =)

Currently... : I'm very tired, but then again, when am I not?
Current location: Bandar Mahkota Cheras
Current music: ...kerana, diriku bukan aku Tiap kali kau menjauh...

I think the whole family is tired after what we've been through today. To make long story short, I wanted to tell the story in points... hope this works.
  • Our streamyx modem broke down last year, so we can't use the wifi at home. We bought a new modem but now a new problem arises... the old wifi router doesn't sync with the new modem. :(
  • After 4 months being away from home, I finally got back to Cheras yesterday (26/4), right after finishing my finals.
  • Deciding that going online with wired connection is such a pain in the butt, so I said to my parents, "let's go out tomorrow and buy this long overdue wifi router," and make my life happier :p
  • So today (27/4) we did go out but it turns out we got lost constantly and my father being fed up with KL roads said that it's better to use the KTM instead.
  • We got on the KTM but my dad got the wrong ticket and we have to stop at Bank Negara station. And here's where our little adventure gets a little too adventurous.
  • When we arrived at Bank Negara, it was pouring heavily. We had to take the rapid lrt to Hang Tuah and from there we change our route via monorail to imbi station to our final destination, the Low Yat Plaza.
The wifi router that I bought is Cisco's LinkSys The Wireless-G Home Router with SpeedBurst. ( No complaint from me so far )

To sum our journey, it goes something like this...

KTM Serdang --> Bank Negara ... interchange lrt/ktm ... --> Hang Tuah ... interchange monorail/lrt ... --> Imbi -->
Imbi ... interchange lrt/monorail ... --> Hang Tuah --> Bandar Tsk Selatan ... interchange ktm/lrt ... --> KTM Serdang
But despite the fussiness of the journey, I had fun. There's a lot of things that I saw and I finally know how to get there by using possibly all public transportation (well maybe with a little help from google maps, Thanks Google!) ...hehe... =)

On our way back, I bought a book! It's Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson worth only RM7.00... lucky me! It's a bit tattered here and there, but I don't mind though. A good read is a good read, no matter how torn up they looked. And I never judge a book by it's cover.

Have not yet finish it since I'm busy online-ing... hehehe

Maybe I'll finish reading it in Sibu, hopefully!
Oh yeah, on our way back, I saw this girl who wears a skirt that's identical to one that I own, standing just right next to me. Oh my... I really am glad I didn't chose that very same skirt that day... pheeww!

After we got back home, it's a Wi-Fi enabled zone...woohoo!

I'm like the Square root of Three

Currently... : busy doing nothing a.k.a procrastinating
Current location : Serdang, Selangor, MY
musique jouant en ce moment: And you know, I'm so wired-up, Don't need no coffee in my cup, Let it all hang out, Let it all hang out.

I'm quite agitated waiting for Monday to come because on that day, I'll be having my last but the hardest paper yet. . . the Statistics and Probability paper. Oh yeah sure, some of y'all might be laughing and feels like statistics is a piece of cake. I wish the brain have a usb port sometimes.

So, in commemoration of the dreaded day (but I'd like to look at it in a positive way though, which is my freedom day), I'd like to plagiarized the Harold & Kumar: escape from Guantanamo bay's poem, the 'Square Root of Three'. Despite the 'bodoness' (translation: nonsensical) of the movie, I had to give credit to the poem recited by Kumar somewhere at the end. The Square Root 3 by Dave Feinberg...

I fear that I will always be
a lonely number like root three
A three is all that's good and right
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign

I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick
With just some quick arithmetic

I know I'll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such as my reality, or sad irrationality
When hark! Just what is this I see?
Another square root of a three
As quietly co-waltzing by

Together now we'll multiply
To form a number we prefer
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
And with a wave of magic wand
Our square root signs become unglued
And love for me, has been renewed

Nice poem right? I really love it! =)
well the 'geek' part of me that is

Between wants and needs

Currently… : studying for finals... pfftt! yeah right!

Current quote : “They can go to college and someone may have a whacked-out $6,000 laptop, but the guy with the iPad will get all the attention.” – Steve Wozniak

Current music:

I got my body and my mind on the same page
And honey, now, happiness is all the rage
It's all the rage

You have no idea how many things that I crave in this world that if I were to list them all, I think I don't know where to stop. Yes, I'm a greedy person, but aren't we all? All of this wants actually changed from time to time. For example, now everyone is talking about the iPad hype and all, so of course iPad is currently on the top of the list. And I don't know for how long it will stay on top because who knows what the next cool thing is going to be in the future.

Some quick facts about the iPad:

  • there are currently 2 kinds of iPad, one with the Wi-Fi and the other with 3G
  • the only browser that works with iPad is Safari. Ouch!
  • videos that's made with the Adobe Flash software won't work on this sucker, so that means no youtubing! gasp!
  • only works with apps or contents provided by Apple and bought on iTunes. Yikes!
  • so basically, you can't run the iPad if the softwares are not approved by Apple. Crap
I haven't seen the iPad advert yet shown here in Malaysia so I'm pretty excited about that!

Steve Jobs with his precious iPad

So, wanting something is not necessarily bad, it gives you the motivation that you need to actually acquiring it. Sometimes, you have to really want something real bad so that you will make plans and work hard for it otherwise it's nothing more than just a silly imagination. Mat Jenin anyone?

Wants can also leads to needs. For example, since I finished my diploma studies, I want to work in big companies such as Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft or Apple... Not necessarily these particular corporations, just as long as it's big and multinational. It would be a dream come true for me. I don't care what positions that they're going to give, I would even succumb to just be the errand girl or even a cleaner just so that I could learn their ways and how to run things. Hmmm...what's this got to do with wants leading to needs? I don't know.

I was just browsing in the uni bookstore looking for something to read, when something caught my eyes... the Newsweek Asia April 12 cover.

I'm not a Newsweek person (I'm more like the Time magazine kind of people) and I've never purchased any Newsweek magazines in the past so I don't know what forced me to buy this issue. Now, for unemployed student like me, spending RM12.00 is a bit too expensive but I bought it anyway. Nothing is too expensive if you consider the knowledge that you can gain from reading it, right? Besides the cover with the iPad is very cool imho.

Quick facts about Newsweek:

  • Launched in 1933 by a group of U.S. stockholders
  • Own by the Washington Post Company since 1961
  • Newsweek is published in four English language editions and 12 global editions written in the language of the circulation region.
  • and the rest you could read up in wikipedia :)
Some other unrelated facts about circulation magazines - AARP The Magazine is the largest circulation magazines in the US, whilst Reader's Digest (my personal fave) and Time were at the 5th and 14th respectively.

Reading is the easiest way to gain knowledge!

My parents came from Sibu today, and I get to hug my mom! That hug gave me my much needed recharge. Oh how I missed her so! I Love my mom so very much!

Currently... : totally dumbfounded
Current location:
Current music: don't forget to click your heels twice, one for right now and one for the ride

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! Something incredibly unbelievable happened today. Ok, so let me start from the beginning. Late yesterday afternoon I was just checking my emails and there were a lot of notifications mail from Myspace. You know, it's been ages since I open my Myspace account and it was just messy. I got a friends request from this band that turns out to be this one guy who called his one man band What Machines Were. I listened to his songs and I can't help but fell in love! With his music of course! It's totally fresh and I dig its style very much. So, I searched for What Machines Were on Facebook and instantly out of pure whim, I just left a comment saying that I love his music. Oh, did I mention? This talented young man is only 19?

Never in a million years have I thought he would comment back thanking me and asking what's my favorite out of all his songs. I said I love them all, even though I only listened to like just 2 or 3 (among them were 'Hello Home, Hello Holidays', Clover, Hectic Times But We've Got This Made and Click Your Heels) He's very nice and I hope he make it big someday. And then I could brag to my friends saying that I know him waay back when he's not so famous... yeah right! He only replied to my wall comment anyway, what makes that so special? I bet dozens of his fans were saying the same thing to him everyday. But still it's so cool of him! If you all got time to spare then why don't go ahead and have a listen? You guys can head here or become his fan on Facebook! I think he also got a channel on Youtube.

The very talented Mr. Evan Tyler
What Machines Were


So, today we had our human physiology paper and I think I wrecked it pretty bad. I don't know what the hell did I answered. I'm definitely Screwed... big time. I just hope I don't flunk this subject. But one thing for sure, I'm so screwed. (>___<)

he's an Insomniac like me

Currently... : I have a big crush on Adam Young's music!
Current location: my dull and very uncharacteristic hostel room
Current music (playing in my head this very moment): "And when you close your tired eyes I'll meet you there" (Oooo...I do hope so mr. Adam!)

Actually, I don't have anything to say or report, but I got this sudden urge to write something (because like one of my dear reader said, "blogging is addiction of self-expression"), nothing in particular and I want to announce that I'm very bored. So...what else is new?

I got a message from an old friend last night. It was a shock to actually receive a news from him as we've never been in any contact whatsoever since like 2 years ago. I thought he's already forgot about me. I guess not. Our conversation goes something like this:

mr. long lost friend: hey you! asleep yet?
me: not yet! why are you contacting me out of the blue? something happen?
mr. long lost friend: aiya! wrong time to sms you ka? i just want to ask how you've been doing?
me: i'm doin' alright, what about you?
mr. long lost friend: i'm fine, i lost my front teeth though...

Me and mr. Long Lost Friend
Me with mr. Long lost friend somewhere back in 2007

and the conversation goes on for some time until he doesn't reply my message anymore. I think he passed out. Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you're doing well now. Hope to meet you soon buddy!!

I think that's all I got for now. No idea what to write anymore so I better go, minding my mind and tending to its needs.

Sorry for this sort of 'unstimulating' blog post. Until next time...adios!

Currently... : I still can't use my brain properly since I've fried it on the test this morning
Current location: where you want me to be...as long as it's not in some sick fantasies...ewww
Current Music: Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream... (bum bum bum bum) make him the cutest that I've ever seen (bum bum bum bum)... gee I LOVE this song, seriously.

I know...

I said I'm not going to blog until I'm finish with my finals, but I can't help it! Blame my fingers for clicking the new post button and typing these words.

It's just that I played around with the google translator just now and It's sooo funny to read the translated version when I used it on my blog. OK, so first of all, to all people out there who are not familiar with Malaysia, we have all kinds of different dialects here. Literally, each states (13 states altogether, and I'm a Sarawakian, peace!) has different dialects or language albeit Malay or Bahasa Melayu (BM) is the official one. But it's uncommon for us to use Malay in our own community unless we're talking with a non-native (and by non-native I mean those who are from another state).

So, the language that I use in my blog is naturally, a Sarawak Malay language. There's a very BIG difference between our dialects and the official one.

For instance, in BM (Malay) when we want to ask someone... hmm... let's say,
'How to go there?' is 'Bagaimana untuk pergi ke sana?'.

But if I were to speak in Sarawak dialect, it'll become 'Camne (pronounced Cam-Nei) nak/mok pegi ke (sometimes we don't add 'ke') sia?'. And if it's a Sabah dialect, it'll be 'Gimana mo pigi sana?'... I guess?? Hehehe...I'm not sure since I got an F in Sabah language. Si Tom! Sila komen!

I can't believe I almost forgot!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BROTHER! Mr. Arnie schwarzenegger Hasri Ahmad... May Allah bless you and our family always! Love ya bro! Tapi sikit jak la, kecuali mun awak cia makan!

I'm grateful to be ALIVE

Currently... : I just had the biggest bizarrest experience of my life
Current location: luckily, not six feet under...yet
Current music: HELP I'M ALIVE my heart keeps beating like a hammer (thank god for that! hehe)

Today is the last day for class for this semester... I can't believe that it's almost the end of my 1st year as a upm student. I had some good and some bad experience where I just keep the good memories and throw away most of those that were unpleasant. I hope, I could remember my first year for as long as I can. Like what I did yesterday where I had a class trip to Yakult factory in Seremban and it was a very good experience. I get to learn a lot of things too.

So what's with the biggest bizarrest life experience that I'm talking about? Well today we had a physiology class. And I was so excited about it because for the first time, I can go and see the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. It's true what most of them said... their faculty were very scenic and pretty. It's like we're at a different place altogether...Nice! There were lakes and everything and it's really quiet and peaceful... I would love to stay there...huhu. So after admiring the faculty and all, we were gathered to this one place near the anatomy room...and lo and behold! There were 2 F-ing cadavers in the F-ing room, when I saw through the window. It's like... a shock you know... I've seen a dead body before, but this is completely a different thing. I swear I never swore like how I did when I saw the bodies. Seriously... I was scared shit.

Not long after that the lab assistant instruct us to come in and gave a briefing about what we were about to witness. Many of us leave after she said that she doesn't force us to see the cadavers but I just stand there. Half of me wanted to go, but the other half wanted me to stay and make this as an experience just like what the lab assistant said. So they showed us the cadavers that's been preserved in formalin, which I'm telling you, has quite strong and pungent odor...uugghhh! Some of us opt to touch the bodies since they allowed us to do so, but me and my friend Sare decided not to because I think that seeing the bodies is more than enough and let's just leave the touching part to the medic students...haha.

That's actually not our lesson for today. Our professor urge us to come and see a real dead bodies because there's a big difference between the real and an artificial one. We could see what's inside our body and everything, the small and large intestines, the brains, the liver, kidneys and all. I've never seen a real life body trays before and today I think is the closest thing to a Sara Sidle that I can be, like in CSI... (^_^) But if I were to be given a choice, I never wanted to go there ever again... even the hallways looks eerie and haunted!

Currently... : tgh bingung sebab ada presentation ptg lak
Current mood: Angin, ribut taufan!
Current music: I wish I could be as cruel as you, and I wish I could say the things you do, but I can't and I won't live a lie, No, not this time

ATTENTION to the owner of this phone number: 0176191213

I just would like to say, CONGRATULATION, you are OFFICIALLY on my SHITLIST!

If I found out who you are...

You'll definitely know the consequences of hurting other people's FEELINGS.

Salah ngan Allah, boleh lagi mintak diampunkan, salah sesama manusia...

Ko rasa ko hebat sangat mo panggil orang babi... Mulia sangat ka ngko tu?? well, aku rasa haiwan yang ko sebut tu lebih mulia dari kau.

This is dumb

Currently... : I'm reading claymore 102
Current location: somewhere between Thailand and the South China Sea...go figure
Current music: Out of sight, out of mind, out of reach, start over... is no way to begin...

It's 3.16 am right now, and I have class at 8 am...gasp! Why do I stay up so late??? I don't know the answer to that myself... maybe I'm just dumb... I don't know... I'm tired.

So today, I just realize something. We have a motivational speak by one of our dear lecturer and one of the motivation speaker or trainee said something that struck me pretty deep... every moment we faced with a choice. It's either we take it or we don't... but every choice is MY choice...get it? It's like every wrong turns or bad decisions or if we find ourselves in a bad situations, sometimes we blame other people and make up lots of excuses unaware that actually there is no one else to blame but ourselves. So why do I study? That's one of the question that he asked us. What's the purpose to go to university and be a student? It's a simple question but try answering that yourself... Why and for what purpose did you DECIDED to do the things you do.

I'm not exceptionally clever or anything like that, in fact far from it. I'm humble because of it, so I would like to say that I do regret some of the past decision that I take earlier in life, and I have no one to blame but me. I should have and could have done much much better if only I realized it sooner then. But, I can't regret what I can't see in the future...it is my decision so I better go with it and do my best. Yes, it's going to be a thorny road where I'm going, yes, I might be lost somewhere along the line and yes, I don't know whether I can stay on-board the ship and reach my destination safely or not...but I do know that every single thing in my life is due to MY choice, and no one else...

So I've gotta stop making excuses, stop feeling sorry for myself and stop being miserable just because things don't go my way because I'll never be who I wanted to be if I keep doing all that, and I want to be a great person, insyaAllah...

This is dumb, and I said dumb twice already, and I'm ranting and no one cares anyway. So, I'm signing off! Later!

Oil and Water just don't mix

Currently... : I have no idea what to do
Current location : ?
Current music : It is time for you to laugh instead of crying - Yes it's time for you to laugh so keep on trying

It's so hot. I swear my sweat could flood the whole of upm...heck the whole of KL prolly. I wonder what will happen in the near future. I can't take the heat, it's getting too extreme nowadays. The hot season is getting too much to bear especially in the afternoon. I know, I'm whining again, but hey! It's really really really hot!

So I fell asleep late yesterday afternoon, and can you guess what happened after I woke up ladies and gents?? If you guessed I won a million dollar then, you're wrong but I'd really love for that to actually happen... but back to reality, yes, no water...again...Ugghhh!!! I hate when we're short of water supply...apa upm x bayar bill ka or what? hmmm...Bengang aku bengang! Lucky the toilet on the other end have some water left so I quickly showered to get rid of all of my dried sweat and frustration. But what makes me even more furious is when I see that girls who knew how limited the water supply is, but they're acting like a spoiled princess instead and takes like what seems like a 5 hours worth of shower. Gee, why don't you bring your whole royal family too. What a spoiled princess wannabe! Why don't you just go back to your own castle wherever that is!

Hey there!

Currently... : I'm playing with my baby
Current Location: Semarak
Current Music: silence...

Assalamualaikum and Salam satu Malaysia... :D

It's been a long time since I visited this blog, haven't I? Oh my, I've neglected quite a lot of things this past few months. It's not that I wanted to, it's just that time was just too jealous of me! I don't know how to describe my life for the past 4 months... a lot has happened and I just don't have the energy to explain. So let's just leave it behind and leave it as it is, a history.

I'm staying with my sister-in-law's family tonight. I was originally doesn't plan to stay but I think life's too short for hesitation so what the heck! Even though I have like lots of assignment to finish, I don't give a rat (and I have a feeling that I'm gonna regret this later). So today, or should I say yesterday, I was with them and we went from KL Sentral to Low Yat Plaza. I think we've spent about 5 hours in Low yat... and there's a lot of things that they've bought. As for me, I just telan aik liur jak la and window shoppiing... :p After that we spent for another 2 hours or so in Time Square, just wandering around... and I bought new clothes! 2 very nice clothes mind you! hehe...

And then, they brought me to klcc to watch Clash of the Titans. Nice movie... I wish we've seen it in 3D though. Might have been a lot cooler. But beggars can't be choosers and in my case, I think tengok yang 2D pun aku dah syukur Alhamdulillah... heeee...

So, all in all, today is a very penat day, very tiring and I think I should go to sleep now as the clock is already 2.12 am...so I'm gonna do just that and am signing out now! Adios peeps!!!

p/s I wrote this early this morning...something's wrong with the line so I can't post it then...
