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!

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
