Paking Up

I'll be going back to malaysia on the 1st of dec...
3 more days to go and I'll wont be in sydney no more...

But Wait, it still seems like I still have a lot to do.
1) I have to start on my thesis topic
2) Have to buy some souvenirs and stuffs back to m'sia
3) Clean the whole house
4) Settle my com stuff (format my com, organise my files, burn some files into dvd and etc...)
5) Pack up and prepare to leave for msia
6) Set up some booby trap in the house to deter crime from happening
7) Get to know some politician, druglord, weaponslord and together we can rule the whole world
8) Hope to get some inspiration from the pinky and the brain cartoon...

Oh well, I know point 6,7,8 is a little bit unrealistic, but thats what on my mind lately....
But still even with point 1-5, there are so many things to do, so little time.
And there is this little problem that I'm getting lazier and lazier.
Sigh. The thought of performing those stuff above just turns me off, especially those which requires me to leave the house...

I'll manage somehow...hopefully...

Rainbow's Stairway

Ever heard of the saying: "There is pot of gold at the end of the rainbow"????
I know that there was once this guy who was deeply inspired by this phrase so much so that that fella would chase for the rainbow for miles and miles...
I have no idea who that guy is, but I've read this article about him on the internet ages ago. Seems like that guy is still looking for the stairways of rainbow that would take him to his desire.

Lucky for me, I found the Rainbow's Stairway. It happened when I was walking out from a lecture hall in my uni.

Hhhmmm, perhaps this is a sign, or perhaps this is an omen. Perhaps everything is going to fine, perhaps everything is going according to plan. Well, whatever it is, that Rainbow's Stairway did made me smile for the day.
It also did left me feeling grateful and fortunate. I mean, what are the chances that you get to witness this sight?? (Unless u purposely install a huge prism there to project that rainbow)

Or perhaps it is there to remind me to smile more often.

Oh, by the way, there wasn't any pot of gold at the end of the staircase.
But i did purposely leave the huge aussie 50cent at the end of the staircase, just so that the next person is able to appreciate the sight more and that 'pot of gold'........

I need a change

I sense that there is something wrong with my thinking...
Perhaps I need to reflect upon myself and try my best to change it for the better...

During exam period, I was so focused on studying for the exam, only thinking about studies studies & studies.. My life and time spent back then only revolve around exams... I did try my best to enjoy the moment, to be grateful that I was granted high-class education along with internet, oversea experience, global friends and stuff like that...
Back then I was thinking: "Do not think so much about the uncertain future, just do your best and enjoy the moment! Try to picture yourself in a 3rd person view, and appreciate the moment..."
Now that exams all over, I have nothing to do....
I am now like a lost child in the lonely desert with no directions...

I was so distracted by the thoughts of exam back then that i have no plan or whatsoever after the busy exam period.... Now that holidays are here, I'm not too sure of what to do, or what can I do... My passion and motivation were all invested in the exam. Now that its gone, so does my motivation...

I'm not sure if you guys understand what i'm trying to express, but I just don't feel like doing anything. I have nothing to look forward to for the time being... I don't feel like going out, I don't feel like learning a new skill, I don't feel like sleeping, I don't feel like doing anything at all!!!!
Heck, I don't even feel like breathing... Well, luckily its all controlled by our sub-conscious mind. If not, it'll be such a bruden to control such basic essential routine bio-human work.

Perhaps this is a glimpse of how drug-addicts and hardcore criminals, people with no future feels like.... A bunch of carefree zombie with nothing to look forward to...
I have to change my mindset fast!!! Gotta find a source of motivation soon....

Oh well, I guess that is why the luckiest among people are those surronded by a wall of active friends, always having some activity going around with other people....
(I sure hope someone calls me out or something like that....)

By the way, did you know that I'm have this fear of calling other people??
That's why I seldom use the phone.... Receiving calls are ok to me. But making a call is scary to me... (Probably because I feel that I'm not a quick-wit smooth-talker...)
Damn, I'm weird!!!

Exam Report

KiF's UNSW Exam Report:

Current Status: Completed!
10-Nov -> Thermodynamics B ------ GOOD
13-Nov -> Principle of Control ------- BAD
14-Nov -> Eng Experimentation B --- GOOD
15-Nov -> Computer Networking ---- SO-SO
17-Nov -> Fluid Mechanics B --------- GOOD
20-Nov -> Mechanics of Solids 2B ---- SO-SO
21-Nov -> Machine Design B --------- SO-SO

I think i've perform fairly well this semester. Not too good, not too bad, just average. Hopefully I am able to secure a good grades enough to award me with a 1st class honours. I reckon that my overall grades won't skyrocket up very much or decline by a landslide.
I think I've managed quite well considering that I've sat for 7 core-subject exam within 8 working days. (excluding sat and sun)

1 thing for sure, I wont fail any of these papers, unless:
i) There was a mistake in adminstrative work, or
ii) The invigilators are can't read my handwritting.
Though the second case is more likely to happen, but chances that i'll ever fail any of these papers are close to 0%.
However, if I fail, I'll lose my scholarship, I'll probably have to pack up and fly back to m'sia as I won't be able to afford to study in UNSW anymore. Then, UNSW would have lose a good student, and the world would have lose a potential revolutionair (not sure if the word exists, but what the heck...) Therefore, it is vital that I DO NOT fail in my UNSW academic days.

Chances that I get to continue my studies in UNSW is approximately 100%.

GOOD -> More than 80% has been done correctly
SO-SO -> Able to finish the exam paper, but unsure of final answer
BAD -> Can barely finish the paper. Included silly mistakes, and messed up the whole paper.

Moments in Life

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real!

When the door of happiness closes, another opens; but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one, which has been opened for us.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

I did not compose this... I got this somewhere in the net...

HappyPeople and MaskRider Video

Have u read my post about HappyPeople and MaskRider??

Guess what, I found the video on Youtube...

Dang, they did not film the lecturer's expression when MaskRider was pulling HappyPeople's pants down. He was standing there stunned with that blank empty expression on his face!!!
Notice how our lecturer turned to the blackboard in dis-belief at the end of the show??
Well, he turned back to us shortly after that and with a wide grin on his face said to us: "Did u guys see what I just saw?"
(By the way, that lecturer of ours, He is a jap!! I'm telling you guys now so that u guys do not have to guess where he got his slang from..)

The video is titled "Got ya pant!" in youtube.

Hard and Smart

Some say hardwork is the pinnacle of their academic success....
"Study hard for your exam, and you'll be fine"

Some say study smart, don't study hard, dont overstress yourself...
"Be smart, don't be a retard"

Well well, of all the people I meet, they will either say 1 of them (either it be study hard, or study smart)....especially during exam period...

Never once I've heard people saying: "Study smart and hard!"

Well then, perhaps I should tell others to:
"Study smart AND hard!"
[Ah yes, the deadly combination which combines the best of both philosophy]

10 November 2006

6 more papers to go....
Wish me luck folks...

Blogging activity will be slow this period....

Till then, enjoy yourselves folks...Remember to be happy everyday... Its still not too late..

Feedback on my last post

Someone gave me a feedback about my previous post:
It's juz too cruel to enjoy people suffer.. I hope u will suffer 1 day and i will enjoy... what do u feel?
---- Lok Kah Fai
Ah yes, Kah Fai, a person who values Righteousness and Justice. I have to give credit to this guy. This guy is just too good.... I'm actually annoyed by 3 short sentences... Finally, I got criticized... Oh well, thats a good experience...

Let me justify my actions.
In reply to that 3sentences:
I have some core believes and some minor believes.
1) I believe that we should enjoy every moment that take our breath away. Every minute, every second that pass us by.
2) I believe that how we feel is 10% affected by what happens to us and 90% affected by how we react.
3) I believe that we humans have the freedom to choose. As long as determination goes, obstacle is not a big factor in our choice of options.

So, when other people suffer (external event),
- I can choose to ignore that and continue to act as if everybody is enjoying themselves as they should have.
- Or, I can choose to feel what they are feeling, and suffer with them.
- Or, I can choose to savour and enjoy the sight.
- Er, I can only think of 3 options...Can anyone suggest a 4th alternative??
Since someone told me that I should be positive all the time, I choose to enjoy rather than to feel their suffering. Sorry for not being emphathetic. (thats just not in 1 of my believe system)

By the way, I'm not torturing them.. Its more like they are doing that to themselves.
So, as long as I'm not doing bad things to other people, I should be fine. I do not wish for them to suffer as well... I hope that they will get better as time goes by... In the meantime, might as well enjoy the sight while it last.
No wait, I should rather put it this way. They are studying too hard, so much so that it seems like they are suffering more than enjoying themselves. I believe that they do that because they are GRATEFUL for the education they are receiving now. (after all, not everyone has the privilige to get into a university) And they continue to work hard just to make their education more worthwhile. So, in fact...I am enjoying watching people who are working real hard to earn a piece of paper qualification.
Remember, I'm merely an observer. I avoid doing things that bring harm...

Wacthing them is more enjoyable than watching a bunch of slackers who care about nothing wasting away their life...
No wait, I think it would still be enjoyable and enlightening to witness a bunch of slakers doing what they do best, doing nothing... Their talents in 'doing nothing' far exeed my level. Place me in an empty room with no windows, no doors, no lights and nothing inside, I'll be bored to death within a few hours... But these guys, they can survive in that harsh environment...

Oh well, I'm suffering from exam period as well....Sleepness nights and all.....
So, folks enjoy all you want as i fall into the pit of darkness... In fact, i would prefer anyone to enjoy than to share my suffering... If they are enjoying, at least it proves that someone is recognising my existance...
The deeper i fall, the higher I will know to rise (assuming that i will rise eventually)
By the way, I'm enjoying my torment as well....while it last. No point sulking over it.. After all, stress and pressure of this magnitude only comes in once in a bluemoon.

Bottomline: I choose to enjoy life no matter how sucky it may seem, no matter what it throws at me...
Peace!!! No offence..

Exam Period

Exam is coming soon.
The official starting date of exams for my uni, UNSW is on 10/11 (this friday).

I have no idea why, but I love to see people torturing themselves during this period. Sleepless nights, short temper, frequent complaints, curses, and the likes....

Aren’t those what students usually do during exam period?
They rather stay up till 6am studying, Maggie mee everyday, stoning in a sitting posture for hours. Man, that’s bad for the body…
And they claimed that time is always against them. (Isn’t it amusing how TIME is what we have the most, not to mention the most precious of all, yet the one that we use most inefficiently)

If you give them a light poke while they are really focusing on memorizing something, and u get see a living human-volcano exploding. Then they use ‘excess-stress syndrome’ to justify their actions. Sometimes if I’m lucky, I get to see the worst anger and frustration anyone can reveal.
It’s amazing how willingly they are to remove that fake mask which they have been putting on all this while.

Intense pressure and stress brings out the worst in people. Let me savour the sight while it last. After all, times such as these don’t happen frequent.

Dang, I just love the sight of people suffer through self-torture.
Hehe, I'm regard myself as an observer.
I'm not evil....am I??

HappyPeople and MaskRider

Humans are interesting!!

Last Wednesday, I was in a lecture theater attending my class. The lecturer was explaining something about system control and later went to the black-board and wrote something down.

Its the perfect time to tell grandmother stories to the person next to me when the lecturer is not looking in our direction. Just when I was about to get into the climax of the story, a very well-build person came into the lecture theater from the front door, the door next to the black-board. He had six packs, a very mascular chest and interestingly he had his front body painted green.

Well, we all had our eyes on him as he was topless only wearing a short trek pants (like those Bermuda shorts). Lets just call him HappyPerson1. And so HappyPerson1 walked casually into the theater, until he was next to the lecturer. The lecturer was oblivious about HappyPerson1, he was too focus on writing his stuff on the board.

Then, HappyPerson1 turned his back against us, lifted up his arm. Initially I thought he was some punk looking for some trouble. As he was facing the lecturer and standing in close proximity, I really thought that he was gonna give a punch to the lecturer. But no, I was wrong, he lifted both his arm up, just like how an angle would open up its wing.

Then the lecturer noticed his presence, turned around, and looked at HappyPerson1 with a gaze of confused state. The lecturer must be thinking: “Who the heck is this topless person doing in my class?” The lecturer stood there stunned for a moment still trying to figure out what is happening.

Suddenly, this masked guy, (lets called him MaskRider1) ran into the lecture theater. As he was running into the theater, he too lifted up his hand giving that ‘peace’ signal. Then he ran towards HappyPerson1. Everyone (the geeky students) in the theater was having their eyes fixed on this MaskRider1. Man, everyone must was questioning if this guy has an AK-41.
Ok, this is the interesting part. Just as MaskRider1 reaches HappyPerson1, he pulled his pants down. HappyPerson1 still with his arms spread out, is now topless and bottomless. Well, he was wearing a G-sting. So yeah, still considered bottomless. Anyway, MaskRider1 quickly ran out of the theater while HappyPerson1 still standing there giving us a fashion show. HappyPerson1 maintained that pose for bout 5secs. And when HappyPerson1 thought that fashion show is over, he wore back his pants and casually walked out of the theater. Wait no, it was more like he was walking like a turtle. Just before he went out of the theater, he lifted up his arm, and gave us the ‘peace’ hand gesture.

And the geeky students were all laughing hard. Subsequently, we hear people outside the theater burst in a real loud laughter.
And the lecturer turned to us and asked: “Did u guys see what I just saw? Did u guys enjoyed the show?”
One guy shouted back: "Is that all? We don't want to see what we already have!"

If u asked me, they came into the wrong lecture theater. I mean, this is an engineering class. There is like 150 students with only 5 females here. Well, it would be more enjoyable if that was a business lecture instead of an engineering class.

Last week of uni, and I’m guessing that’s how HappyPerson1 and MaskRider1 way of releasing stress. Man, that was 1 lecture worth attending for.

Oh, did i mention that "Humans are interesting"?

Welcome to Austria

I find this very amusing..
Austria is home to a town called 'Fucking.'
The sign reads: "Bitte — nicht so schnell!" in German
In english, it translate to "Please — not so fast!"
Hmmm...'Fucking' ....'Kids'.....'Please - Not so fast!'......Can you see any relation between these words?? Are you imagining something now??

Anyway, this is a real sign board in a real town known as 'Fucking'.
I'm serious!!!
To read more about it: Welcome to Austria
