Thinking Of Becoming A Lawyer..

Yesterday, whilst everyone was tied up watching football.. I was busy researching on my assignments.. (Yeah, right).. Fine.. I was mostly on Facebook.. But I was talking to a close friend who is currently in UIA.. Yeah.. Farah Atiqah.. :D.. Talking to her made me think a lot.. It made me realize.. I'm really going to be a lawyer.. Or at least I want to be one.. InsyaAllah.. I will.. We talked about the steps after getting a degree.. That I should pursue my syariah and masters in UIA.. This is me planning my future.. :).. Hopefully such dreams will come true.. The whole time.. In my mind.. I was thinking..

I'm on my way to become a LAWYER



I'm not scared of it.. It's just.. I never really thought I would have made up my mind after all these years.. You know what I intend to express right? We've been bombarded with questions like, "What do you want to be when you grow up?", "What are your future plans?", and "What will you be doing when you grow up?" since kindergarten..  Every reply I give will often be given without much thought.. "Doctor", "Engineer", "Computer Analyst", "Architect", "Software Engineer", "Game Designer", and even an "Entrepreneur".. Those were my answers which always came halfheartedly.. You don't expect a 10 year old to specifically tell you his imaginary future plans do you? But, those were answers I gave before I entered secondary school.. In secondary school, my answers are more consistent with my interests.. "Psychologist", "Counselor", "Psychiatrist", and "Lawyer".. I found that I was more interested in being a lawyer during my fifth year in secondary school.. Hence, the reason I'm in UiTM Kuantan doing my foundations in law..

I learned more about the Malaysian legal system yesterday.. Especially regarding the procedures needed to start or open a case.. Who are the plaintiffs.. Who are the defendants.. What is the writ of summons, and what is it supposed to do.. Tort.. Civil Law.. It's becoming more and more apparent.. I'm doing this.. I'm on my way..

Thanks Farah.. You've made it all clear.. :D.. What am I to do.. What our plans are in the future.. The various roads I would be required to endure.. Before my dreams can come true.. So here's what I promised.. You are someone who always makes me feel touched.. :P.. I'm serious.. Every single moment I talk to you.. I see my future as, becoming a lawyer.. You always put it straight out.. What am I supposed to accomplish.. What are my goals.. Without you, I would probably be going with the flow.. Not planning out for the future.. I'd probably still be playing around..

No words can describe you.. You are indescribable.. Perfect in your own way.. A shining pearl marvelously glimmering in the bright moonlit sky.. You are a mesmerizing and radiant individual who can strike into the hearts of many.. Your presence alone can influence others.. Thus, I imply you.. Not to change your traits.. For you have won the approval of many..

Tagged By Syidazira Yusoff..

I must admit.. It has been awhile since I updated my blog, and as an effect.. My hands feel pretty numb.. Basically.. I have been, 'tagged'.. So, as a recoil I must write a post answering the questions the tagger has answered.. Since her tag was in Malay.. Let me have the pleasure of translating it..

Do you think you are hot?
    The term 'hot' connotes different implications under different situations.. Since there is no distinct provisions stating which hot is meant to be conveyed in this particular situation.. I shall progress this predicament by setting forth an ideal solution, defining such a word.. My definition of 'hot' is having a relatively high temperature.. In which, if such a definition is brought up, I am nowhere near hot.. ;p

    Update the wallpaper that you are using now?
      Odd as it is, I have no clue as to what this question means exactly.. It could be a fault during the process of translating the inquiry itself.. Although I doubt such an occurrence due to the fact that I have failed to comprehend the question when it was in Malay in the first place.. XD

      The story behind this wallpaper?
        Well, this wallpaper, which you can see, is brightly colored.. It is bright in a sense that it illuminates the page.. Which is what I had intended it to do.. There is your scoop behind the wallpaper.. ;p

        The last time you had pizza? 

        I'm not exactly fond of pizza.. That fact alone should make you realize I do not keep a diary that pertains to the partaking of pizza.. :p

        The last song you were listening to?

        Ellie Goulding - Every Time You Go.. Never heard of it? Well the song on my blog? That's it.. ;p
          Other than finishing this post in regards of the tag, what are you doing? 

          Listening to music.. I guess..
            Other than your real name, what are your other nicknames?

            A nickname is a name that I'm comfortable using even if it is not my real name right? If so, I haven't any worth mentioning.. ;p
              Tag another 5 people 

              1. Ain Romeli
              2. Nabila McFlurry (Sorry.. The McFlurry sort of stuck with you.. :P)
              3. Marea Amad
              4. Cheah
              5. Alia Ilani Nasution

              Who is your number 1?

              Ain is one of my friends in UiTM whom I have known before entering the college itself.. She is also among those whom I still have contact with after MDS.. Yes, the previous sentence is quite confusing.. LOL.. Should I do a biography too? She is a debater.. She is a teslian.. She is a.. Hmm.. Golly, I don't know much about you don't I Ain? HAHA.. Kidding.. She's a dean student.. XD.. She's from Terengganu.. She has a fluent American English accent (which makes me very jealous.. :p).. I think I should stop.. There's no end to this.. Right Ain?

              Say something about the person you put at number 5.

              She is very intimidating.. ;p
                    Number 3 is in a relationship with who?

                    Does she have a boyfriend? I doubt it.. She doesn't seem to be interested in one.. (Don't be mad.. :D)
                      How about number 2?

                      Nabila? Hmmm.. I'm not sure.. Do you have one? Xp
                        Express your love to number 4.

                        Owh.. I can't.. She has a boyfriend.. Lalalala~~
                          Give four facts that you know about the people you tagged.

                          Ain - She is timid, has a subscription to celcom broadband (I wonder how I knew), likes korean songs, best friends with Athirah
                          Nabila - She is not timid, emotionally challenged, oblivious to what others say, wears braces
                          Marea - She is very friendly, religious, very active in facebook (in a good way), likes a particular type of tudung (I don't know what it's called)
                          Cheah - Can be very persuasive, has a pink laptop (or netbook), straightforward, wants things done her way
                          Alia - She is free willed, has frequent deep thoughts, often setting goals, lives in KL

                          There you have it! :D
                          Go! Post you tags..

                            Social Psychology..

                            "Although we generally do a good job thinking about the social world, we are far from perfect in this respect", - Sir Syahril, MTC039 Lecturer.

                            One of the most effective ways in excelling in our studies is to apply such knowledge in our real life, for knowledge without application is like a car without fuel (in this argument hybrid/electric cars are negligible)..

                            One of my favorite subjects in this semester is Introduction to Social Psychology.. I often wonder why subjects in my foundations often connote that their existence is accompanied by a difficulty in describing or defining the subject itself.. Although I understand these subjects do cover a wide and broad scope, it is to my amusement that at certain times it's definitions are in fact derived from the same basic idea that social psychology is in regards of anything to do with relations among humans..

                            This subject has enriched me in two ways..

                            One is that it has verified my intuitions in prescribing accounts of human relations.. Secondly, it has extended the skills that I have all these while, tried to hone.. You see, whether we choose to realize it or not.. We have often applied these skills in our life as we have learned from past encounters and experiences.. Social psychology is actually a tool we use everyday, when we socialize or interact with our friends.. Social psychology is what defines us.. The reasons why certain actions are taken.. The reason why in different situations our actions are different..

                            To me, up until now.. I believe that one of the most controversial issue when it comes to this topic is in regards of judging others.. This subject shed a light on this matter.. It permeated throughout the darkness of uncertainty of judging human beings.. The way we understand others have never been so clear.. The reason why we are so quick in judging others became so clear I now understand the basis of human nature..

                            Attribution, to regard as a belonging.. In this case, classifying a person into characters or personalities we believe suits the individual.. Attribution is quite an intriguing topic as human nature has fixed our skills in this sector based on our past experiences in which common sense is used.. In social psychology, we separate the fact from common sense.. The study of social psychology revolves around the notion that common sense is often a vague foundation to an assumption.. That common sense can be intersecting with each other but still be correct.. Social psychology believes that behaviors can differ in distinctive situations..

                            We often perceive others differently with ourselves.. When they do mistakes we relate their mistakes with their internal characteristics in other words, it is their faults.. But, when such a mistake occurs and we are in their positions.. Quickly we blame external factors, such as it's his or her fault.. Such behavior is understandable in social psychology.. It is also one of the reasons why there are two sides of a story.. Therefore, after this, before judging someone.. We should bear in mind.. All the factors that might have contributed to such an event..

                            Debate.. A Passion..

                            I was as they call it, "blog walking" today and I came across a blog belonging to one of my closest friends in secondary school.. Jazli.. Where he summarized his debate experience during his secondary years with me and the rest of the schools debate club..
                            That's me on the left.. The one in the middle is Kak Sarah.. The one on the right is Jazli.. This is in IIUM..

                            After reading, I began to reminisce the memories which were vividly coming into view.. How we established the debate club.. How we debated in the inter-school debates held in International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).. How we participated in HKSBP.. How debate has defined me so much in my life.. How it broadened my perspectives.. How it enriched my mind.. How debate has become a part of me.. It cannot and will not be separated from me.. One of the reasons which lead me to pursue my foundations in law is debates.. But, entering the debate society in UiTM Kuantan has proven to be quite a bedazzling experience.. Things I have never experienced before in my life have come true.. So what are the most significant dissimilarities you ask?

                            1. I have never been entitled to be one of the main debaters..
                            In my secondary years.. I have always been the reserve speaker.. Sure.. When a motion is introduced.. The first person they look to when they require information is none other than yours truly.. But in regards of channeling the ideas I was, in simple terms often unappealing.. I wasn't exactly the best conveyor of thoughts.. I usually shy away from such an opportunity.. I was more of the jack of all trades.. I knew every issue.. I could tell you just about anything about any issue then.. They even coined an appellation for me.. "Mr. Facts".. But here in Kuantan.. Most probably because of the format change from Asian Parliamentary to British Parliamentary.. I have no choice but to become one of the main debaters (which mind you is in a team of two)..

                            Adilah, Amani (DEBATer), Me, and Izzati in Sri Puteri
                            This is both the Malay and English debate teams combined in SEMSAH (I think)

                            2. I have never got through the finals..
                            Yes.. During my secondary years.. The finals were an implausible topic.. Never before have we made it through such a level.. I have only dreamed of debating on stage with an audience.. Then again.. I would have only been the reserve looking at the debate in the crowd.. :\.. Bummer.. But, in Kuantan.. Even though the competition was only between two campuses (Jengka and Kuantan).. I was skeptical of the idea that I would be able to reach the finals.. But I did.. The feeling was utterly magnificent.. It was captivating and breathtaking.. The feeling when the crowd cheers for you on stage? It's simply exhilarating.. An experience like no other..

                            The ones in the maroon blazers are from my team.. :)
                            3. The teams..
                            For every competition participated by my secondary school.. Only one team is allowed to compete in it.. But here? There is more than that.. You can send up to 6 teams.. Which is a big number I might add.. But one thing is different.. In secondary school.. Anyone can join the debate society.. But in Kuantan.. You have to pass auditions.. Meaning membership is limited..

                            There are more actually.. :)..
                            Me with Miss Jacqui.. :)


                            Although there are differences.. There are also similarities.. :).. For one.. I'm still the president of the society.. :P.. HAHA.. We still improve our English through the Debate Society as English is the main language used (obviously).. I remember when I was the president of the debate club in my school.. One of the proof that debaters had good English was when it came to the prize giving ceremony.. All the receivers for the highest marks in English in their forms were from the Debate Society.. One of them was me.. ^^,.. Even the English Language Society didn't use English as their lingua franca.. Which is sad to me.. Because there goes the whole purpose of the society in the first place.. My past debate team members.. Namely Adilah, Jazli, Bhavithra, Izzati, Hafiz, Afiq, and everyone else.. Thanks for everything.. You guys helped me find who I am.. :D.. To my current debate team.. Masturah.. Athirah.. Ain.. Syirah.. Izyan.. Cheah.. Alia.. Kimah.. Aber.. and future members.. :P.. Hope we can acheive more in the competitions to come.. :)

                            I despise you..

                            Douchebag.. There I said it.. You jerk..
                            I often find people displeasing but you've brought it up to a new level..
                            It's people like you that prevent me from socializing from your kind..
                            Get a life loser..

                            You seriously think you're better than me? I've never thought of such things but you? You've not only managed to show your unjustifiable, uncorroborated and chimerical assumption.. You've also made it a point to be an obnoxious oaf..

                            God!! Why the heck is this nincompoop here?

                            If there's one thing I've learned in my life that can be applicable here is that we should never look down on others.. Their potential might not have even been tapped in.. But you? You look down on me as if you're god.. What the heck?

                            P/S: This song is for you.. Enjoy.. :)



                            We Hate You Please Die

                            Fear Fills Me With Revulsion..

                            Destiny is a vague subject.. Understanding what it is, is simple by definition.. To acknowledge it? Differs in terms of situation.. Should I have lost a close friend or relative surely only time could mend my broken heart (although I refrain from illustrating such feelings).. But If I lost a pen.. I doubt the duration in which to acknowledge the two destinies would be the same.. Thus going to my point in which destiny brought me to this blog.. It emphasized on the fears that in reality does occur and I felt a need to share my phobias and how it affects my life as an individual..

                            Aquaphobia - Abnormal and persistent fear of water.
                            So in this case what does it mean? It doesn't literally mean water as in taking a shower.. I have no problem with that, but aquaphobia relates to being afraid of water in general.. Some define it as afraid to be under the water in any circumstances.. But in my definition, it means fear of drowning and the fear of something that might kill me lurking in the water.. How did such a fear affect my life?

                            I refrain from swimming in the sea.. Which is troublesome due to the fact that my family often goes swimming in the deep blue sea prominently in vacations.. The last time was in Redang Island if I was not mistaken.. Or was it Pangkor? I also recall Langkawi.. Nevertheless this fear has affected me deeply.. I do swim.. I have the basic knowledge of swimming but the fear still haunts me at times..

                             Source

                            Aichmophobia - the morbid fear of sharp things, such as pencils, needles, knives, a pointing finger, or even the sharp end of an umbrella.

                            I assume the description did the job well.. So I'll continue to the part where I tell you how it affects me.. Well this predicament affected me during my childhood the most.. Nowadays the strain is felt but is much more insignificant than before.. In my younger days just by looking at a pointed object my eyes would feel as if the object pierced through my juicy eyeballs.. Is that a good depiction of how it affected me?
                             Telephobia - A psychological condition in which one experiences extreme fear or avoidance of using the telephone. The fear may be more intense with regard to either making or receiving phone calls.

                            My case is the latter.. In which I fear making or receiving calls.. I'm not sure where this started.. But ever since I can remember.. I had this problem.. To me.. This is the most perplexing fear of all.. Because I never know the exact reason why.. I just don't like calling or receiving calls especially from those I don't know.. Especially? Not only you say? Yes.. Even if I know the person calling.. I still have a problem answering the phone.. I know.. It's bizarre.. But, it's true.. I remember countless girlfriends I never called before.. Just talking in person or messaging was my principle then.. But now.. I am slowly getting rid of my fear.. Maybe you should call me up.. See if I answer.. :P

                            I suffer from more types of phobia but those are the ones that affect me the most..

                            Taking things too seriously..

                            There are some things in life we often take too seriously.. This diagram perfectly illustrates what I am trying to convey..


                            Yes, I realize my sense of humor is somewhat salacious.. But, I concede the fact that the youths of today have a lascivious mind, ergo further intensifying the subject matter.. Among the things that people take seriously are for instance is theories about the world ending in 2012.. One in which states that the ancient Mayans predicted such a predicament.. That their calenders only went up until 2012.. Here's something that might make you think otherwise..
                            Another argument that can be brought forward in this topic is understanding the usage of hyperbolic words. For example, "Practice makes perfect".. While one can argue that this is not true due to the fact that nobody is perfect.. The idiom was coined to encourage people to practice to reach an ideal level of skill.. The fact that perfect exists as a destination is understandable.. But the reality is that reaching such a destination is quite preposterous.. Another thing that we might argue based on the idiom is the definition of perfect.. Is it flawless? Or is it simply skillful? Based on the skill, often the idiom when subjected to different situation bears different answers due to the figurative or literal understandings that might emanate in the course of that argument.. This exemplifies the topic that I have brought forth today..

                            Another thing in which I have often had a problem with is when individuals fail to realize the figurative or metaphoric ways of articulating feelings in a song.. They would say things like this song has no meaning when in fact, they failed to realize what the song is trying to portray.. An example, Lady GaGa - Telephone (feat. Beyoncé).. The song is trying to say that Lady GaGa wants to enjoy her life but, obstacles are always diminishing her from doing so.. That was what I heard from the song anyway..

                            But, GaGa told MTV News that this song is about her "fear of suffocation." She explained: Something that I have or fear is never being able to enjoy myself. 'Cause
                            I love my work so much, I find it really hard to go out and have a good time." Gaga added that the phone in the song isn't just a physical phone, but also somebody in her head telling her to keep working harder and harder. "That's my fear - that the phone's ringing and my head's ringing," she explained. "Whether it's a telephone or it's just the thoughts in your head, that's another fear."

                            See? Even I have a problem relating to taking things too seriously..

                            Now what to do?

                            STOP taking these things too seriously..

                            Debate Auditions..


                            Simple but full of meaning.. Due to the fact that we are in need of more members in the debate society.. We are holding an audition session.. As usual my contributions to the society are very microscopic.. Other than setting the date.. I have no other aid except picking out the topics required for the auditions.. Thanks a bunch to Wan Nurhakimah Balqis.. Fatin Nasihah Jamaluddin.. Masturah Mohamad and to the other debaters for helping out in the preparations for the auditions..

                            UiTM Shah Alam..



                            Some of you might have known the fact that I went to UiTM Shah Alam for the UiTM Intervarsity Championship Debates or in short UiTM IV.. Basically I killed two birds with one stone.. Firstly, I was made aware of the debate community with its more complex being.. Secondly, I got to tour around in UiTM Shah Alam (hopefully my next stop after completing my foundations)..

                            So.. Let me explain the part about the debate community.. So prior to this debate competition.. I was only exposed to the DC cup held in UiTM Jengka.. This competition is joined by only two campuses.. Kuantan and Jengka.. So when we debated between each other.. It was apparent our difference in debating skills were very little.. So.. What happened in UiTM IV? Well.. It's like comparing and contrasting the difficulty in answering UPSR (DC) and SPM (IV).. So IV was joined by various institutions of higher learning not only limited to those in Malaysia.. The debaters comprised of many races and ethnics from various countries and backgrounds.. Some Malaysians.. Some were from Uganda.. A few from Iran.. Others, places where you could only begin to imagine the whereabouts of their countries.. Yes.. There were many foreigners.. When we were there.. We realized not only was our debating skills very mediocre.. But our English skills were nothing to be prided of.. Because the English skills possessed by the other participants were obviously on another level.. Some of us had a hard time understanding them.. Even though I didn't have that problem.. I had difficulty replying to their arguments.. I could have replied using simple words but due to their rich vocabulary.. I struggled to keep up with their colorful wordings.. The outcome was pure devastation.. Not only did I confuse the adjudicators at one point.. I confused myself.. It truly was an eye opener to me.. As if I woke up hearing a deep hoarse voice whispering into my ear saying, "You are nothing"..

                            Now.. The touring part.. Well basically.. I learned more about my law program.. In which only about 20% of students in the foundation program will be able to continue in the Bachelor of Legal Studies (BLS) degree after completing their foundations.. Even if you do finish your BLS.. The entry into the degree needed to become a lawyer or LLB is limited.. So basically.. As lecturers, seniors, and various other sources have stated.. UiTM law graduates are very marketable in a sense that they are more preferred over UIA law graduates due to the fact that to obtain a law degree from UiTM is more difficult in comparison to getting one from UIA.. This explains why pre-law intakes are high in UiTM because the outcome in the end is very low.. Promising highly skilled lawyers.. Okay.. Now UiTM Shah Alam.. The campus surprised me for its gargantuan size.. It was enormous.. The buildings.. The area covered.. They were all beyond my expectations.. Which is good actually.. Traveling in the Rapid KL buses which were frequent made the commute there very satisfactory..

                            Basically.. UiTM IV has made me understand that I am part of a bigger system.. In this bigger system there are students who perform better than me in certain fields.. This made me feel that I shouldn't walk on this earth thinking I am already good.. I should be thinking that I can be better.. I shouldn't look down on others because there are better students than me.. That I should try my best to overcome my weaknesses even if it means that I will have to swallow my pride and go hand in hand with my rivals.. That we should fight not against but with.. That the world is bigger than you think.. UiTM IV made me a better person..

                            P/S: Farah Atiqah.. I am holding on to your plan.. Hopefully it will come true.. :).. The truth is without you the atmosphere in the class has changed drastically in my view.. I often wonder how will I cope with your absence.. I shall follow your advice and I shall strive for excellence.. My spirits will be centered upon your plan.. Always.. I hope we do not lose contact.. You've always been there supporting me in semester one as I have been behind you as well.. But keep this in mind.. I'm still rooting for you in Kuantan.. Keep up the good work.. Hopefully everything goes as according to plan.. I am anticipating the day we both turn up as lawyers.. InsyaAllah..

                            The Beginning Of A New Chapter..


                            As I stepped out of the vehicle I could only begin to imagine the uncertainty of the future.. It was akin to predicting ones own death.. A mystery which shall encompass the individual till the time such an occurrence befalls upon us.. As I settled the registration of my stay in the campus.. I held the key given and said to myself, "This is the beginning of a new chapter".

                             
                            XXXX
                             


                            I stood there baffled by the condition of it.. Never before have I witnessed such a desolate room.. My parents advanced in.. In their eyes, a glimmer of hope shone.. "Our destiny is often shaped by our surroundings.. Fear not of this godforsaken room.. For we shall revamp it to a more habitable space for you..", said they.


                            Just as they foretold.. The room was soon purified of its former being.. The toilet now shimmering, spotless as can be.. The floors were sheathed with a layer of vinyl carpet.. The omitted shower head in the lavatory was replaced by one capable of delivering more than 5 types of water discharges..
                             
                            After that.. They left.. Leaving me to pioneer my destiny..

                            The Stories People Tell..

                            When an incident occurs between two people and should it be that only one person is to be at fault.. Most likely there will be two versions of the story told.. Both backing up themselves.. The method the individual depicts the incident is going to convince others that he or she is innocent.. This is a very mediocre occurrence.. To better illustrate what I am contemplating on.. Here is a brief fictional tale that in reality might just occur.. Pick one recount of events then contrast it to the other one..

                            Two students were quarreling.. In the end, they stopped speaking to each other.. They were the most popular best friends in the class and often were the center of attention.. When they were fighting the class split in two.. Both sides supporting their leader's (namely either one of the popular boys) story..

                            Popular Boy 1's Story

                            "We were both hitting on this beautiful girl.. We made a bet to see who could steal the girls heart.. As time went by.. I was apparently winning as I was very persuasive.. But, most probably out of jealously Popular Boy 2 told her that I already had a girlfriend.. Obviously.. I don't.. Why would I want to get another girlfriend if I already had one? It's not like you guys don't know I'm single all this while.."

                            Popular Boy 2's Story

                            "We were both hitting on this beautiful girl.. We made a bet to see who could steal the girls heart.. As time went by.. I was intrigued by a message that came out on Popular Boy 1's mobile phone.. Since the message popped out without me doing anything.. I couldn't help but notice another girls name.. I decided to check it out.. It turns out he already had a girlfriend.. By now I wasn't interested on the bet anymore.. All I cared was that the girl isn't cheated on.. So I told the girl we were fighting over what I found out.."

                            So.. Basically.. There are two sides of the story.. Which one is true? A little on both.. You see Popular Boy 1 had a girlfriend but he was thinking of breaking up with her the minute he got a new one.. Popular Boy 2 did read those messages but his mistake was to ask Popular Boy 2 about the matter.. So who is at fault here? You make the decision.. My point here is that you mustn't judge a person based on what you heard from other people.. Before you go on judging others.. Get to know the person first.. Because you never know the person unless you talked to the person personally.. So what you might have heard about me before.. There might be truths.. There might also be lies.. But keep in mind.. Have you really known me that well to judge me?

                            Timetable..

                            Today.. As usual boredom was the main agenda.. So I thought to myself.. Maybe I should do something beneficial.. Something others can benefit from.. Then I remembered.. What about timetables? :).. Since the timetable wasn't constructed properly for us to view the time line of it all.. Maybe it was best if I created one that we could all rely on.. :D..

                            Then I got to work.. Copy paste.. Copy paste.. First from the portal to notepad.. Then from notepad to the word processor.. Then construct the table.. Followed by print screen.. Open paint.. Paste.. Dup.. Dup.. Dup.. And.. There.. ^^,..


                            So I made the timetable.. Yeah!! Which is very simple.. Since I thought there wasn't a good enough reason to make it nice, mind you.. The next step was to post it in Facebook.. Done.. :D..

                            So what's the big deal? Well.. What did I find in the next course of 5 hours? Every group made their own timetables too.. That didn't bother me.. What bothered me was that theirs were nice.. -.-".. Oh man.. It was like a competition.. "Who can create the nicest looking timetable for their group?".. That sounded like what the competition is.. I sent my entry too early.. HAHA..

                            Okay.. Back to the timetable.. :).. It's really nice to see that classes are now only up until 7PM in contrast to the previous 11PM.. -.-".. I can tell you.. those classes make you very sleepy.. Another thing that was nice was that there are no classes on Friday! :D.. Just like last semester..

                            So after creating the timetable.. I felt that I was nearing the end of the semester break.. That I was nearing university life again.. Lectures.. Study groups.. Assignments.. Studying.. Books.. No Facebook until 5PM.. Wow.. :).. Can't wait..

                            Owh.. Before I forget.. I'm getting pumped about UiTM IV too.. This debate competition is going to begin in the first week of lectures.. That's like seriously efficient for the debate team.. Hehehe.. Many thanks to Masturah Mohamad and Wan Nurhakimah Balqis for their good work in preparing all the necessary paperwork whilst I laze around at home.. HAHA..


                            Saturday, 13 November 2010

                            My MUET experience..

                            I was thinking of another song..
                            But, this one seems more clear cut of what I feel..

                            "You got me defenseless, intoxicated senseless
                            You cut me so deeply, I must confess

                            Baby I can't breath, when my arms are around you
                            Baby it kills me cause now that I found you
                            Your love is like a weapon girl, I can't live without you
                            You're so beautiful, it's tearing me apart
                            You murder my heart"


                            So basically.. I'm not sure if I did good or bad.. Because for one thing.. I couldn't differentiate between false and not stated.. -.-".. If its not stated.. Doesn't that mean that it's false? If it's false.. Usually.. Isn't it not stated? Then.. The writing.. Question 1, I did 199 words.. But here is the problem.. I didn't talk much about figure two.. How do I? Figure 1 was about the years 2003 to 2008.. Figure 2 was about 2008.. -.-".. So I only touched the surface of Figure two stating that there is a co-relation where the higher the this the higher the that.. Sounds like science.. A hypothesis? XD.. I was going to talk about the cumulative frequency.. But I was reaching the limit of 200.. So I finished early..

                            The next question had a minimum of 350 words..So I asked for another two or three papers for it.. I think I exceeded 1000.. -.-".. It was about arranged marriage? Err.. So I kept stating my opinion that in our society where the minds of individuals are more open and liberal minded, arranged marriages are almost unheard of.. I gave examples and such but.. Someone told me such practices are still common.. Well.. I don't know..


                            Friday, 12 November 2010

                            MUET Last Minute Tips..

                            As the title suggests.. I'm going to give some tips based on what I have read, heard, and seen.. :P.. I know.. I'm not that good.. But my principle has always been, teach others to teach yourself.. If I tell all of you what I know.. I'll be able to retain more information for later.. :D.. So here it goes according to the sequence of tomorrows tests..


                            Reading (800/3)

                            Okay this test component is the heaviest of all the other components.. About 40%.. So you should really work hard on this.. It takes about an hour and a half of your life.. :P.. There are 45 questions.. 29 being 3-option questions and the rest 4-option questions.. The fun part about this component is that the answers are multiple choice.. So you will see the answers when doing the test.. Now the problem will probably be identifying the right one.. :D.. There will be six passages taken from various sources..

                            In this component.. As I was told.. The most important thing is to UNDERLINE the important parts.. How do you do that? Okay.. First.. Read the passage swiftly as the passages often are very long.. Then read the questions.. Now you know what the questions want.. Read the passage again but this time.. Underline the parts you deem as important in regards of answering the questions.. Make sure you understand what the passage is about though.. Sometimes we read but we don't have the slightest clue as to what the passage intends to deliver to us.. Then you can answer the question confidently.. If this doesn't work then cross out the wrong answers one by one just like you did in secondary school.. :P

                            Writing (800/4)

                            This component will take you one and a half hour to finish.. It consists of two questions.. Whereby question one is interpretation of information which is based on specific stimuli provided and is usually needed to be at least 150 words and not more than 200 words.. Question two on the other hand is extended writing which is based on a given topic requiring the participant to write at least 350 words.. The questions may request the question to be answered in genres of a letter, report, essay, or an article.. This component makes up 30% of the test..

                            To me.. This is the hardest component.. The first question is usually presented with visuals in the form of graphs and data.. Now the first thing you need to check is what does the question request? A report? Article? Letter? Or an essay? Then you should scrutinize the the visual.. Look at the title.. Understand what they are all about.. See the scale/unit of measurement carefully.. Then look at the trends (increase/decrease).. Because later you will need to talk about these things.. Examine the relationships of the text and visuals.. Here are some words you can use to describe the graph:

                            remain steady
                            fluctuate
                            increase slightly
                            decrease dramatically
                            decrease slightly
                            increase rapidly
                            rise dramatically
                            plunge
                            drop suddenly
                            stay the same
                            go up a little
                            go down slightly

                            Often you will be forced to draw conclusions from the data.. Then after you write it all.. Check for errors..

                            Question two on the other hand is harder as it requires more of your thought on a a topic.. Highlighting what the question wants might help you answer the question better as you will be made understood your task to among things, recount an event, describe, discuss, argue, contrast, compare, explain or even analyze. After you know what the question demands.. You should take a minute or two propagating ideas.. Then you move on to the essay.. Basically you should divide the essay into three sections.. Introduction.. Body.. And conclusion.. As we were taught.. The thesis statement should be written in the introduction.. The body consists of the main ideas in which each paragraph is included a topic sentence with supporting details.. Other tips include using transition signals such as furthermore, finally, whereas, on the other hand and the like..

                            Listening (800/1)

                            The last time I checked.. There were three parts.. This paper will weigh you 15% of the 100% marks you will have to strive for.. So for this part.. It shouldn't be that hard.. Don't get frustrated if you think you did bad in the end.. Because you still have the reading and writing parts which weigh about 40% and 30% respectively.. Obviously the audio will be repeated twice.. I think we all remember that part though..
                            So the thing is.. You have to first know what you want to find out.. Before the audio is turned on.. If I am not mistaken.. They will give you about one minute to read the questions.. Now.. When they say this.. Do not skim the questions.. Read and understand what the questions wants.. This is so that you won't get caught up during the audio is played.. When you know what to look for.. It would probably be easy for you to spot the answer..

                            Usually the answers are in order but, you never know.. So pay attention to everything the audio says.. In regards to what the answer should look like.. You shouldn't worry too much because there are usually more than 5 answers to a question.. As long as the answer has the meaning that the question intends us to have.. For example, if the audio says "The cat was eating lasagna".. And the question was.. "What was the cat doing?".. The answer could be.. "Eating lasagna, Consuming lasagna, Take nourishment of lasagna, and even Devour lasagna".. So long as the answer has the same meaning needed to be conveyed.. Now do keep in mind of the NOT MORE THAN THREE WORDS.. They're not there just to be decorative in any sense..

                            There are variables though during the whole listening tests.. Such as how the sounds turn out.. Is it clear? Are you going to be in a comfortable listening area? Does it echo? Now this I can't help.. This part is up to where you take your test.. Whatever it is.. Pray to god it's going to be fine.. :)



                            So.. That's it.. :).. GOOD LUCK!!


                            Owh.. Sorry guys.. Speaking?

                            It Blew My Mind!! :D



                            Seriously!! It did!! :D.. I don't know about you guys.. But every movie I watched always had a part that was boring.. Usually part where long dialogues were present.. But seriously.. This movie.. No boring parts at all.. The story was amazing.. It was fun!! It incorporated something I have not seen before.. It was like watching a movie which is a game.. Because it always had the game feeling in it..

                            Here's the synopsis from IMDB:

                            "Scott Pilgrim plays in a band which aspires to success. He dates Knives Chau, a high-school girl five years his junior, and he hasn't recovered from being dumped by his former girlfriend, now a success with her own band. When Scott falls for Ramona Flowers, he has trouble breaking up with Knives and tries to romance Ramona. As if juggling two women wasn't enough, Ramona comes with baggage: seven ex-lovers, with each of whom Scott must do battle to the death in order to win Ramona. Written by Jim Beaver"
                             This movie is a must watch especially for the avid gamer.. There wasn't a moment that I didn't laugh.. It was all very ludicrous!! Some reviews of the film even said that the movie made people too much!! HAHA..

                            The whole idea of the movie.. Just made me happy.. I can't stop laughing and smiling.. :).. I'd love to tell you about the movie.. But you'd better watch it by yourself.. :D.. If you guys want to download it.. Here is the link.. Enjoy!!

                            Programming.. I Think.. -.-"..


                            Well.. This is true isn't it? :P.. But this isn't what this post is going to be about.. My post today is as the title suggests, about programming.. More specifically.. Facebook programming.. Well.. How did I start looking at such an idea? Here's the answer.. Have you ever wondered how some people make those via BlackBerry or via iPhone or via Nokia 3310 Facebook status updates without having the phones? (with exception to the Nokia 3310)
                            Well.. My curiosity wasn't intrigued enough to venture on the question.. Until..

                            *Drum roll please*

                            A new Facebook status came up via Lawrian Group X UiTM Kuantan.. This made me go.. Wow.. They made applications just to update their statuses? O.o.. Then my urge to study the FBML or Facebook Markup Language suddenly sparked..


                            :D.. Sorry.. It has always been a wish of mine to do this.. Hehe..

                            Okay.. So for about two to three hours.. I was studying on the methods of creating an application on Facebook.. The commands were simple enough but the language seemed to be very complex.. (Mind you, its been awhile since I programmed anything) So I thought to myself.. Is this really worth it? There are so many things needed to be done.. In the end I'm only going to update my status through it.. -.-".. So I gave up..

                            That's not the end obviously.. :P.. I had to ask this particular girl, who developed one of these applications for her group just out of curiosity .. I was amazed at how she mastered such a feat.. So I asked her.. How did she do it? At first she was laughing.. Then she told me something I never thought of before..

                            The application was made by her.. Yes.. But the programming was done by a third party program from another application in Facebook.. O.O.. You can do that? Yes.. You can.. So then she told me the steps to get to the application.. And in ten minutes.. I updated my Facebook status with an application I 'developed'.. HAHA..

                            The moral of the story? Sometimes we need to be humble and ask for directions instead of pretending to be a snob and figuring things out for ourselves.. I said sometimes.. :P.. Because at other times.. We might have learned more than we would if we asked..

                            When Life Gives You Lemons..


                            Life is a journey. There are obstacles here and there but we need to savour the time we have before it's all over..

                            To tell you the truth most of us take things for granted.. What we have now.. Might be something we won't be able to have forever..

                            We get angry because our internet connection is slow.. We go berserk if the food isn't delicious.. We curse for the world to know when our relationships don't work out.. We even get mad if we don't get to watch our favorite TV show because somebody is watching something else.. I could list down all the things we get mad for but it would be endless.. We think we have the worst life in the world..

                            Seriously?

                            That's why we have to think our life is bad? That others have a better life?

                            Maybe we should look at these people..



                            According to the United Nations about 25,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes. This is one person every three and a half seconds. One.. Two.. Three.. There someone dies of hunger.. And we complain about food not being delicious.. Stop complaining..


                            60% of Mumbai's more than 18 million inhabitants live in slums.. This means that 10.8 million people there live in a thickly populated, run-down, squalid part of a city, inhabited by poor people.. Remember Slumdog Millionaire? Yeah.. It's real..

                            So before you go mocking about how your life really is on Facebook.. Think about the 80% of the world population that don't even have internet access..
