Banjir

Living in Hulu Terengganu, especially in the province of Kuala Berang, it's normal to have flood on every raining season. I don't think sistem perparitan kat sini teruk. Maybe it's too small to support such a large volume of water, especially masa musim hujan nie.

Anyway, it happens before. Unfortunately it happens again. This is the worst I've ever witness a flood in my hometown. Come again, suppose the government already figured out something extraordinary to overcome this problem, heh? 

 My sisters. Excited tengok banjir...

 The awesome Jabatan Pertahanan Awam!

Me.

Anyway, these pictures were taken on 25th December 2012. My house is not so far away from the scene, and from what I see, this is the worst flood, ever. If I wasn't mistaken, 6k people are transferred from this flood. 6K, that is a lot!

 I wanted to ride that sampan.

 Imagine how deep the water, and these guys are only half their way. Towards the end I think they swim or something.

 This is a school. SMK Tengku Ampuan Intan. And if you can see, ada dua tiang gol, almost completely tenggelam.

 The school management are not going to be so happy.

 Kids. They love the flood. Benda jarang-jarang nampak. Even aku yang tua nie pun excited tengok banjir. Hehe...

 This is not a lake. It suppose to be a normal road. Or as I called it, Jalan Besar. 

 Just my size 13 foot. 

The water is really fast there. Almost sounded like a waterfall.

Oh. The school again.

Now, with the road closed due to the flood, how the hell am I suppose to go to Kuala Terengganu, to get my ticket and go back to Shah Alam? (I'm here on study week leave) I am literally stuck here. The travel path is closed and all I can do is sit my butt out and pray that everything went to normal as soon as possible... 

If it didn't...

May as well take my final exams here in my hometown. Oh god, please don't let that happen. :(

Laundry

I was unlucky enough to get a rent house without a washing machine.

Living as a student, if you don't have washing machine around, your only options are to hand wash, or to go and do your laundry at a shop.

I choose to laundry at a shop.
I just don't have the time to hand wash.
And it's cheaper, and quite worth the pay.

I mean, the shop I go only charges RM4 for washing and RM3 for drying. Total of RM7 which is not bad for a student like me. And I only do my laundry once a week.

One day when I already have an awesome career and have my own house with a washing machine, I will remember back my student days.

How I put all the dirty clothes in a cheap nylon bag, carry it around on my motorcycle with the soap and softerner.

It's quite a large bag, sometimes it blocked my view while I'm riding my bike. And the people staring. Haha.

I am not ashamed of this. Why should I?? Typical student life, definitely.

Lucky for students living with their family. Mummy and daddy will take care of everything... Lucky them.

The End of The World???

21/12/2012.
It's Friday.
Hrm...
Nothing happened.
The Mayans are wrong.

It's not the end of the world today.

I kind of thought so.
I don't believe in predictions.

So.
The end of the world, huh?
Kiamat...
When will it happen?

Would it be tomorrow?
Or the day after tomorrow?
Who knows?
We don't, and I don't think any one can see when it is coming.
But it's definitely coming.
When?
Only He knows...
Only...

God knows.

Just get ready...

Facebook

Just finish last class for this semester.
I am happy about it. Who doesn't?

Anyway, I was thinking, I should Facebook this. Tell all the people how I glad it is now reaching the end.

But then, who would bother to read status something like that?

It doesn't have any impact or anything. Isn't it? My carry marks won't increase in any way by doing so.

But then, what should I really post on the status? Cheesy stuff that people don't really care to read?

I once feel so annoying by these kind of status, but somehow when it was me, it was okay. So hipocrite, right?

I need a Facebook manual.

Cause in the real world, nothing we say can be acceptable by all people.

Suddenly, everyone have their own "Me Rules" that everyone has to follow. If don't, they judge and condemn.

People are so complicated.

Thick and Thin.

I'm not thin.
I'm a thick person.

I'm okay with that.
One day I will lose it.
Probably when I'm too concerned with my appearance. Or simply if I want to improve my look.

But, I have something to say to people who always assume thick people like me is unhealthy, that I don't take care of my health.

I just did a health screen. From the end of my hair till down to my toe.

I am healthy. Really healthy. It's confirmed. Probably healthier than those thin people out there.

I see many people thinner than me have health problems. Not all of them. And not all thick people is unhealthy.

Take note, okay.

Condemned.

One of the worst thing in the world is to be condemned by a higher level people. I feel the pressure today.

They say,
Everything is not right.
Everything is not accurate.

Maybe it's my fault.
I would admit it.
Although it's a group effort,
I feel the blame is on me.

Meeting Siti Nurhaliza

I was suppose to accompany my friend to see Siti Nurhaliza punya event at Watsons. Something about shopping and donating money at the same time. It was at Watsons inside the SACC Mall, two days ago.

So, I, of course have never met Siti Nurhaliza before in my life. And she's like the biggest singing sensation in Malaysia since the 90's. So, I was also excited about this.

She's pretty. Soft spoken and also very friendly. I did not go crazy and screaming and shits. I was like normal. But yes, I do push around people to be at the front. Heheh. And I am a big and tall person, really sorry-lah for all the people behind me, cannot see.

Stand there at most one hour. Take hundreds of pictures. My friend is totally starstruck at the moment. And my friend actually managed to shake Siti's hand and from that moment he cannot contemp his happiness. Glad for him. He really loves Siti.

I didn't take any picture together with Siti. Suppose to buy a RM150 worth of Simplysiti product to have pictures with her. Nah, it's ok. I'm not wearing any makeup because I'm a guy and furthermore, I'm broke. Hahaha.

Tq.

Atonement

I'm not the kind of person who would stay in front of the laptop and watch a random movie. Even my favourite movie. The feeling is just not the same as watching at the cinema. I'd get bored so easily.

Should get a home theatre system when I have a career in the future.

So, back to Atonement. I copied this movie from a friend like four months ago and for quite a long time I'm not bothered to check it out.

Until yesterday. Quick click and there it is. I don't even know what "Atonement" meant when I first saw it. But, the beautiful accent and view in the movie keeps me watching.

Oh I love the way the actors speaks. It seems so real and attractively cute. I wish I can speak British English.

Also, little did I know the storyline was going to be so intense. I cursed a bit here and there. It's good. Cause I got into the movie so much, and forgot that it's just a movie.

Towards the end, I was left speechless. It's just so epic and powerful and seriously sad. It could not be any better. I'm glad I keep this movie around.

This movie were out like years ago. It was based on a book. And I'm probably the only one who just saw it. And watching again is a must. But I'm kind of procrastinating on that because it will leave such an impact. Hard to accept but a brilliant movie.

Have you watch it?

Big Foot

So...
If I lose weight, does my feet gradually become smaller in size?

Having a size 13 feet is nothing to fancy about.

My father, my poor father. Spend so much money on my foot alone. This is not America. This is Malaysia. We don't have American sizes here.

The last time my father bought me a leather shoe, it was RM300. It's the only brand with large sizes and that's the best price they could offer.

Living in Terengganu, it is very hard to find my footwear. Now that I live in Selangor, guess what, it's still hard to find my footwear. Sighhh.

Foot. Oh my foot.

Hey Readers.

Hi there.
I was on a hiatus for a while. I didn't have the time for blogging. So I stopped. It was like six months ago.

I didn't care to blog since.
I didn't remember to blog.
I forgot the feeling of able to express anything I wanted.

So, a few weeks ago, I saw this friend of mine updating her blog from her Blackberry. Somehow, I managed to sneak a peek into her phone and got her blog's URL address.

Went back home, spending the next few hours reading her blog. She had such an artistry side, which I've never know before. It's cool.

Then, I started to remember the feeling of blogging. It is somehow enjoyable and satisfying. I was never concerned whether my blog have readers or not, or the number "0" at the comment section. If I do get comments, it would be awesome but, my point is, it was just so good to see my own writings and sometimes I feel like there's another side of me that I didn't know appears in the blog.

I really do. I usually writes on paper, and things that I wrote didn't actually seems like I am the one who wrote it. My friend said it so. 

So, few days ago I decided to go back on blogging.
That leads to this.

Thanks whoever reading this. I really appreciate it. Cool.

Nite, again.

Hungry and Calories

Eat less they say...
And I did.
And I still don't lose weight.
In fact, I might gained a pew pounds.

2 or 3 weeks ago, I did this nutrition presentation in my class whereas my topic was about healthy menu development.

And part of the presentation, I have to teach the whole floor on how to calculate the number of calorie burned in a single day of a person.

So I did it based on my on weight, and, oh well. My body is burning 16,764 kcal per day and if you wonder how much is that, it is almost 2 kilograms of fat, protein and carbs altogether.

It's true. And if you ask me, how come I'm still fat if my body burns that much of calories per day?

Easy.

Cause I ate the same amount of calories everyday. Yes. I do. I eat. I eat a lot. So, if I want to lose some weight, I should lowered my calories intake and watch what I ate.

But, somehow my weight is almost the same, means that I do take that much calorie everyday.

I'm slowly changing my eating habits, ok. It does scares me a bit. These days people said that obese children are likely to died first then their own parents. I do not want to be in the same situation.

Eat well ,okay. Oh yes, if you wanted to count your own calories burn, try googling something called "Basal Metabolic Rate' (BMR) for short. From that BMR, count your RMR.

Hope that helps. Nite.

Students

Honestly.
22 years of living, these days are probably the hardest of being a student.
I'm not nagging, but there is a whole bunch of work needed to be done.

I am exhausted. Really exhausted. Is it my fault? Is it the lacking of my management skills? Probably.

But still. I won't let a "student" life slow me down. I still find time to do things that I love; and I don't mean studying.

Music. Ohhh, it's the best therapy in the world. When I found the right beat, it's normal to see me nodding around, dance a bit, kot, and hit the replay button mercilessly. Hahaha.

Internet, oh I don't even know where to start. It is probably one of the greatest invention in the world. Don't you agree?

Friends. They understands. That's why they are awesome. And in such painful time, when they are around, you still can find so many things to smile about.

Nite.

The Test


Late update? Like I have so many time to write to you. But thank you for reading. :)

Next week, there will be test on Food Science, Hospitality Procurement and also Kitchen Planning and Design.

Since next week starts tomorrow, I should be very worried now. But, I'm not. Haven't studied yet. The first test would be food science, it's the day after tomorrow. I hate this subject. Science is not my forte. Writings, English and music is my forte.

Ah, it's just some random test. It's not the final. However, I should be really worried about hospitality procurement. The last time I didn't scored at all. I got like 1 over 70. That's not something to be proud of.

I will start studying tonight. As a matter of fact, I already read some slides on food science; Lipids and Emulsion. During the diploma days, this would be really fun and I can like memorize this in 30 minutes. Nowadays, it's harder than ever. Probably something I ate.

When the clock struts 11 tonight, I will have to fetch my friend from work. So, that means more hanging around and loitering after that. Probably will be serious about this around 1am in the morning. And now it's 9.41pm. 

Tomorrow's class started at 2.30pm, so I've pretty much time to study. Somehow, this laptop needs to be on hibernate, and out open the thick and annoying textbooks. I hate textbooks. Hence the name, text. Too much of it. It's like I'm trying to improve my skills in reading. I can read, and I do it well.

How I wish there are more pictures and diagrams and charts like that. Would be way easier to study that way, and definitely less yawning and complaining. Reality sucks and people who wrote these textbooks, sucks! They should be arrested and jailed for making studying a pain in the ass.

I have my thought, I would say anything more from now on. 

Till the next time, peeps.

Student Portal Berwajah Baru

Hell yeah!!! This is the kind of thing that I never expected to see... Student Portal now looking fabulous with new layout and image!!!

I mean, check it out peeps!

Beautiful!!!


See what I mean, bila bukak je page Student Portal, it's so organize, nampak teratur, nampak bersih je... Dulu, ingat tak cam mana rupa portal tue, sorry aku tak sempat snap gambar portal lama, cause I didn't expect the portal akan berubah wajah... :) Anyway, dulu punya version, fuh, very messy, ada banyak warna, semua tak bersusun, really, nampak cam meja aku yang tak kemas... Now it's all beautifully organize! I LIKE!!!

Look at this login page!!! Awwwwwww!!!

Terasa ada kesungguhan ntuk login bila nampak login page ini... Login tanpa ragu-ragu! OH!

Hahaha... Okay, maybe I over excited about the new layout... However, you cannot deny that it look so much better now... Students yang banyak berurusan kat student portal like me, really appreciate this new layout, sebab yang lama,,, not interesting, at all, whatsoever. Hahaha.

Nice isn't it?!

Akhirnya, boleh la kata yang orang UiTM yang handle page nie buat keje sket... Usually, masa kat portal lama, banyak news-news and announcement yang lapok, sampai aku bleh ingat apa dia tulis, walapun announcement tu bukan ntuk aku...

And aku banyak dengar komplain pasal Timeline di Facebook! Hey, it's new. Get used to it. I think it's pretty too...

Hati dan Perasaan

It's so hard.
Susah nak jaga hati orang.
Especially hati kawan-kawan nie. Yes, I am still not over it. The last post, I wrote about relationship with few of my friends.

What ever happens in Shah Alam, was never right and always seems wrong. What happens in Dungun, stays in Dungun, and how I wish it happen the same in Shah Alam but it didn't.

How I miss everything in Dungun...

I might lose one or two, but I thank god for other friends that stand by my side. I appreciate each and one of them. 

It's true, it hurts me more losing a friend, rather a friend losing me; at least that's how I see it. How I hope it's not true... I always crawls back to a friend, whenever he/she tried to avoid me due to quarrel or whatever. I always would be the first one to communicate.

Come. I'm offering peace and friendship here... Come...


For some reason, I can't do it any longer. I don't want to crawl anymore. Sometimes, it's nice to see people show that they need me. And that's what I think I needed to see. 

And I think this comic strip says it all.
.

susahnya nak jaga hati orang... haishhh...

First Update 2012.

FINISH.
One semester in Shah Alam. One truly hard semester here. Let me tell you something real here, and not a myth.
Back in my diploma days, seniors used to tell us that we would be learning all the same thing that we already learn in Dungun.

"Sama je cam diploma. Belajar balik benda sama je..."

"Nak sambung degree ke? Baik pilih course lain dari buang masa amik DCA. Benda sama je kot!"

Okay. Now that I, myself already been there, let me just tell you that... They lied.

It's so exciting to be there, cause dalam kepala nie like "haha, aku budak degreeee!"... but the subjects are really hard and I sometimes rasa cam everything is out of control.

Talk about gastronomy or human nutrition... HUH!!! Antara subject yang buat aku pening kepala...

So, exam dah lepas. Wonder how I did. Hopefully I pass... *Finger-crossed*.

What else did I learn this semester for the past 4 months in Shah Alam?

I found that, the people that I met three years and a half ago, might just not be the same person today. People change. I can see the person with my own very eyes, but I cannot see the one I know before.

Apart of that, I also experience betrayal. Yes. It hurts and not many were by my side when I was in need. Well, lesson learnt, I can't be everyone's perfect friend. And so does other people. I am really open and accepting that people can change, drastically, and I also have no problem losing a friend rather than continue to be hurt.

Hope to I make myself clear, to whoever reading this. :) Hope u guys can relate my story to urs. TQ
