Random shit

Just read this article about astrologists discovering a planet which is might be habitable. Read the post here,

After reading it, I just had this thought that we are not originally from this planet earth. Possibly, the first generation on earth migrated from their planet as well. They came here with their knowledge and logic about their previous planet and found that they cant apply any of them here on earth and became insane or died because they cant accept the logic of this planet, earth. They remaining ones resort to their primal instincts and forgot about reason. They lived like that for awhile and that was when they start to understand the planet earth little by little, discovering fire, steam engine, so on so forth until today. Now that the human race has achieved knowledge and exploited the earth, the planet earth is dying and probably someday not suitable anymore to be lived in. Then we go in search of another planet like earth. One day we might go there and so, repeat what we have done here on earth.

This shit can be made into a movie! Steven Spielberg! It's your queue!

Start of my last two trimester

This is the first week of my 2nd trimester for my final year and I am already feeling packed. Its like opening a door to another room but that room is filled with water and the water just washes you away.

Anyway, got my final year project title already. I am supposed to make a cyclone dust separator simulation. Was really in a dilemma when I wanted to choose between this (pure simulation work) and making a trebuchet (pure mechanical). I chose simulation instead because I will be able to learn in depth on ANSYS software will I will be using. My uncle did told me the other day as well that engineering has gone in to the stage where everything is done using simulation. So, I believe I better start practicing first eventhough I rather do prototyping.

Training was a bliss. Somehow I am lucky to be accepted into such a wonderful company, OYL R&D. Very well organized and communication between all departments and sections is good. I wonder if I will go there again but definitely this is going to be my standard I will be looking for when I come out and work.

Training in O.Y.L. R&D

Lazy to type so much. Overall, I enjoyed it. People are friendly there, well most of them are. Enjoying myself learning about the stuff I dont really fancy when I was studying fluid and heat transfer. Quite ironic....hahaha. Now I know, with the right people, everything is enjoyable. Well, that is only half true because in the end, it's the attitude of the learner that counts.

The only thing is they treat me like a baby, so concerned about my safety. Small stuff like opening the casing of an indoor air-cond unit (wall-mount), manager ask me to ask technician for help. Guess what...with a little study on an already opened unit and a screw driver, I opened it myself. MUAHAHA. I am no baby, I am no fragile person that small physical stuff can break me, I am...cant find the words. Haha...

I lack self-esteem

When I am faced with something unknown, I always feel inferior. Sometimes I even get myself worried till I think of all the negative things about me and how I will be unable to pull through.

I sent letters of application to companies back in December. Only last month and this morning did 2 companies called me offering a placement. Guess what? I already got my placement 2 months ago but it is not from my own application, rather I asked my university to apply for me. I should have called. My mom nagged and nagged me about this. It is not because I am lazy that I did not call any of the companies. I felt very very inferior at that time, thinking that I am nothing, just a speck of dust. My mom would not understand. Probably she went through this before like 30 years ago, and it would be like a pebble blocking her way but it felt like a sky scrapper blocking my way. Same way with how easy SPM would be for me now than 4 years back.

Lesson I hope I learned is to have more faith in myself. I am not that bad....

Interfaith talk 19: Life after death

*Sensitive issue, please stop reading if at any time you find my review is offensive. You have been warned.*

This is what I summarized from the talk from the 4 speakers.

Religion A:
Aim: To be at god's feet (stop of rebirth)
Drive: Good Karma and rebirths

Religion B:
Aim: To live in heaven with fellow believers
Drive: After life justice and believing in ......(the impression I get is fear)

Religion C:
Aim: Get out of the "samsara" cycle (rebirth)
Drive: Achieving balance, no good karma, no bad karma

Religion D:
Aim: Go to heaven, live in pleasure
Drive: Believe in.... and that pleasure is awaiting

Question I asked: When we are reborn we carry the karma of the past but not our memories. What thinking should we have when we are faced with a suffering that is possibly due to bad karma that we dont remember accumulating?

Answer: We must understand that this sufferings are due to karma and accept it openly, whole-heartedly.

What I think: Probably the speaker is right, when you accept something openly, whole-heartedly, it hurts less than trying to reason out, "why me? what have I done?". That said, it is also not easy to accept suffering unlike accepting joy and happiness.

Unlike the other questions by other students such as, "what is in 'your' heaven?", I think mine is more practical. By asking what your heaven has to offer, are you implying that if the other religion offers a better heaven, I will ditch my religion and join that religion.

This is a personal view, I find it offensive when someone says, I will be punished for not accepting a certain religion when I die.

English English...

Yesterday, I had my Malaysian University English Test (MUET). I was tested on my reading, writing and listening. Considering it is an official whole nation English test, I expect the invigilator to give instructions in English. However, it came to my surprise when she started giving instructions in Malay. I felt awkward, like I was back in secondary school taking some mid term paper. Throughout the 4 years in University, no matter what paper I am sitting for, the instructions were always spoken out in English. Then, an English paper with the instructions spoken in Malay. My lecturer told me that day that Malaysian was once very welcome in England because we were once that good and they can understand us. Not anymore. All I can say is, Malaysia Boleh!

Beauty and Grace: a perfect combination

These two days, I happen to be a working committee for MMU Invitational Taekwondo Tournament. Ah...Taekwondo...the memories...

Anyway, I saw a perfect combination of beauty and grace in this one girl. She is from Koryo, a Taekwondo club in KL. Never heard of this club before but from these two days, I witnessed and learned for myself that they produce champions to represent Malaysia in international games like the SEA games.

On the first day, she asked me "where is the toilet?" and I was a little stunned by her beauty that at the moment I caught a glimpse of her I quickly turn away (my natural reaction when I see a beautiful girl, I dont know why). On the first day she only had one match cause in her category (age and weight), there is only 2 participants (she herself and another girl). She lost that match but right away had a silver in her hands. I caught myself looking at her and for her a...LOT of times on this day. Lol...

On the second day, she joined the open category tournament as well (they dont look at your age, only your weight). I was totally impressed at her performance for the first match. A few kicks to the head and her opponent gives up. The same thing happened on the second and final match. A few blows to the head and her opponent gives up. Anyway throughout this day I stole some looks at her admiring her beauty as well as her graceful performance in the arena. When the day ended though, I felt sad. Dont know when will I be able to see her again...

I felt like a stalker these two days, keep looking at her...Wonder if this is normal or will I one day go mad and really become a stalker. I even thought of seeing a counselor for help...I AM A POTENTIAL STALKER!

MMU Charity Fest 2010: Charity Night 30/12/2010

The charity this time is dedicated to the Persatuan Autism Melaka Tengah.
Autism is a condition that can happen to children as early as 18 months. Children can suddenly lose their ability to communicate for example, a child that was able to call papa/mama suddenly just lose that ability.

This condition is treatable but not cureable. Meaning, children who has this condition can be helped so that they can lead a better life.

They can be extremely good in certain thing, in order words, geniuses. But, it must be discovered early in order to help it develop.

What the centres all over the world do is that, they help parents understand and be able to cope with their child (they can be a pain for those who do not know how to handle them) and also provide training and guidance for the child to develop their communication skills once again. The most important part of all, the centres are opened so that these children are acknowledge and accepted by the community.

"At a glance, they look just like a normal kid, even more pretty and handsome than most of you but the way that they behave is totally different than all of you. They are in their own world" said the leader of the Persatuan Autism Melaka Tengah.

For further info on autism, visit this page. (I dont want to give wrong info)

Someone once told me...

Knowledge is obtained through your own effort and hard work. Keep it up!

"A's" are for God, "B's" are for lecturers, "C's" are for students and "F's" are for animals.

A good leader will always be the first person to arrive and the last person to leave.

Try to smile no matter what, cause you never know when your smile could lighten up someone's day as well as it will lighten up mine.

There are two types of leader, "THE EFFECTIVE - result based without considering the procedure" and "THE EFFICIENT - procedure based without considering the results"

Success is not Final and Failure is not Fatal

Original version
"If it doesn't kills you, it will only make you stronger"
My version
"CHARGE!!! unless you are dead..."

The medium of transfer is not what matters, it's the value of the content!

This is what I told myself: Bullshit lecturer + Insufficient notes = YOU ARE SCREWED!

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you (referring to the whole class) all the luck in your future -Dr Nabil

Share knowledge because it multiplies, dont share money because it divides.

There is time to have fun and there is time to study

Put all your eggs into one basket and watch it

Always ask yourself, "what happened? what actually happened?" - Kok Lin
