What Burns My Spirit

Warning! This post has ramblings, If you do not approve of an individuals complaining, please do not carry on.

Some people have asked me this.

What?

What?

What?

What is it that burns my spirit to strive in my studies? Although I am far from being a success, people still want to know. You know what? I'll tell you anyway.

The thing that burns my spirit is thinking about those who have pushed me down so hard that it makes me want to show them that they are nothing. I am constantly on the run of proving them that I am better than them. To tell you the truth, as much as I aspire to smack them in the head, I find it more pleasing to show those blundering idiots a piece of my mind through laughing when I reach the top. I know it sounds somewhat devilish but that's what moves me.

I've had countless people who have either harmed me verbally or physically, and the outcomes of which I seek are often visible. They say,

"What goes around, comes back around."

"What you give, you get back."

Rarely do these individuals escape from my belief in karma. They often end up worse than what they had done to me. I'm not going to lie. It always feels good. I do not easily forgive people, especially those who have humiliated me. Instead, my output is through shutting up and humiliating them silently by proving that they have nothing to be proud of, and that they can reminisce on the things they have done to me and regret it because what's done is done.

Am I one of them you ask? Seriously, don't worry, most probably you're not one of them. Cause if you are, you won't be asking that question.

What Happens Now?

I have to say.. I've abandoned this blog for awhile.. I guess I'm at loss for words here.. Its like having writers block.. Ideas do not flow to me as frictionless as before.. It devours a much more devastating time limit as before.. You know that moment in life.. When your fingers are on the keyboard and there's nothing you can do about the abyss of obscure conceptions which arise in your head.. It's not that no such thought has emanated from your mind.. It's just.. It takes time to comprehend what you want to expound exactly..

The presence of ideas itself do not promise a means of exhibiting it.. What is present doesn't always have to be seen.. I'm surprised you've been reading up to this point..

Enough with the ramblings..

To the very impetus that you are reading this.. What happens now refers to my question onto what will happen to us now? I ask myself whether such a inquiry is appropriate.. We are often mesmerized by what we are going through that sometimes we forget the future is unknown.. Don't we realize that what we have now may perish tomorrow? That what we have today might not appear tomorrow? That our lives are something of uncertainty, and that anything goes..

This post does not wish to provoke a feeling of uneasiness.. Rather.. It aims at being a catalyst of living a life that has value..

I've had colleagues who have complained that this is hard.. That is hard.. But from what I see.. They do not invest their time in improving what they deem as hard.. Then why do they question such a predicament? They have brought it upon themselves.. They have failed to understand the fact that what they do today will effect tomorrow.. Isn't that just obvious? But why do they still play around like fools?

The government gives them support.. Allowances.. Not for them to fool around.. The money is given as a responsibility.. To use for the sake of their future.. How dare they question the amount if the effort they put into studying is minimal.. 

So I really have to say.. If you want something.. Do something..

That's the easiest way of obtaining something.. My way is different maybe.. But who knows if you can use my method and succeed better?

Time To Register Courses!

Hah! Gotcha! ^^,.. Well, I'm sorry for surprising you like that.. But seriously.. Maybe this will make you think about it..


Well.. You know the message that pops up when you click the register course button? The..

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please try again, before you contact system admin."

Well, I clicked it and another screen came out.. It said for matriculation registration.. So I clicked it.. And then that thing came up.. I was so nervous.. Then I realised that there wasn't any groups registered in it.. -.-".. Bummer.. But the subjects were the right ones.. Maybe its a sign that registration time is near?

Uncertain Future

Before I move on to why the title is like that, let me apologize for not updating my blog these few days.. :).. Sorry guys.. Been busy on my other blog..

"I don't know what my plans are for the future", "What will be, will be", and "I'll just go with the flow". Have you guys ever heard of these phrases before?

I'm pretty sure you have. So what's my point? Well.. My point is.. Those phrases are "cool" and all but I have a feeling that the individual who uttered these very phrases aren't really planning for their future.. Which to me isn't a big deal since you are not me.. But to me.. If I said those things.. I'd be probably be really going nowhere.

"Those who fail to plan, plan to fail"

Seriously.. If you don't plan your future now.. You ain't going nowhere.. I know how hard it is sometimes.. You get scared.. You freak out.. Just the thought of not achieving what you put to mind could be devastating.. But, at least you have a goal.. I'm really sick of my friends (some of them) who tell me, "Hey! God has a plan for all of us. So lets kick back and enjoy the show!". If you say that I hope god gives you a smack in the head. Cause you didn't even care to put in much effort into it.

If a guy runs in a race. Will he run passionately if he doesn't know what he'll achieve when he wins?  I doubt it. He'll be taking his time strolling around cause he doesn't have a goal to achieve. In fact, he'd probably be taking a nap enjoying the show.

Bla.. Bla.. Bla.. Yeah.. I sound like a big babbling oaf right? LOL.. Whatever.. Cause this is special for you guys who think that you shouldn't plan for your future.. I mean, be prepared with an umbrella before it rains (sediakan payung sebelum hujan) You might not know what the future might hold but it's a good thing if you have a plan anyway..

I just thought this was funny.. ^^,

Humpty Dumpty Used as Authority In Court?


Believe it or not. This isn't an April Fools Prank. Humpty appears in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass (1872), where he discusses semantics and pragmatics with Alice (Alice In Wonderland).

  “I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’ ” Alice said.
    Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!’ ”
    “But ‘glory’ doesn't mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.
    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master      that’s all.”
    Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. “They’ve a temper, some of them—particularly verbs, they’re the proudest—adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs—however, I can manage the whole lot! Impenetrability! That’s what I say!”

This passage was used in Britain by Lord Atkin and in his dissenting judgement in the seminal case Liversidge v. Anderson (1942), where he protested about the distortion of a statute by the majority of the House of Lords. It also became a popular citation in United States legal opinions, appearing in 250 judicial decisions in the Westlaw database as of April 19, 2008, including two Supreme Court cases (TVA v. Hill and Zschernig v. Miller).

In Liversidge v Anderson [1942] AC 206, Lord Atkin said,

"I know of only one authority, which might justify the suggested method of construction. 'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less'. 'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.' 'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be the master, that's all.' After all this long discussion, the question is whether the words 'If a man has' can mean 'If a man thinks he has'. I have an opinion that they cannot and the case should be decided accordingly."

So, is it applicable in Malaysia?

In other parts of the Commonwealth such as Singapore and Malaysia, the courts have generally followed the majority decision in Liversidge. In Singapore, the case of Re Ong Yew Teck saw the arrest of a man under the Singaporean Criminal (Temporary Provisions) Ordinance 1955, which granted police officers the power to arrest and detain anyone "whom he has reason to believe that there is ground to justify his arrest and detention under s. 47" of the ordinance. The detainee appealed, arguing that the phrase "has reason to believe" meant that an objective test of reasonableness was to be used, citing Nakkuda Ali. Justice Chua rejected this argument, and accepted the majority decision in Liversidge as persuasive precedent. In Malaysia, the case which established the subjective test of reasonableness for executive actions was Karam Singh v. Menteri Hal Ehwal Dalam Negeri. The case, heard by the Federal Court in 1969, remains as binding precedent in Malaysia. In the case, the appellant had been detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA), but the statement of the Home Minister giving the grounds for his detention provided only one reason, even though his detention order had initially stated there were more. It was argued that the Home Minister had taken a "casual and cavalier" approach to the detention, and that because the allegations against the appellant had been unduly vague, the Home Minister had acted in bad faith, thereby voiding the detention. The court held that the detention was good, because it could not assess the actions of the executive, applying the subjective test of reasonableness as Liversidge had.
