One year has just gone by me without even me realizing.. I was looking at the calendar and I was like "gosh, is it over already? where did my year went??" Recalling back, an 8 month break from studies does really make the year go by super fast.. After all, time flies while your having fun.. =)
2009 has been a year of ups and downs for me.. Of happiness and bitterness.. Of joy and sorrow.. Let us review month by month of what actually transpired (if my memory still serves me rite)
- My first working experience (ok, beyond the confines of my home) in Jusco as a Carlsberg promoter.. Really opened my eyes to what is waiting out there.. I made new friends, gained new experience and managed to improve my mandarin.. LOL!! Also not to forget CNY.. Obviously the best rite?
- Nothing much occur here.. Not that I can remember off.. Working for dad, enjoy, lepak, tat's all.. And of course the departure of my friends to their unis in overseas, namely Australia..
- Dreaded moment.. Month where the STPM results come out.. And a real blessing from God that I did well.. Happiest moment in my life after SPM results.. Also the begining of a very busy week of application of unis and stuff.. Farewell to Chia Chi as she leaves for India and also Genting trip which was just fun.. Also, the month where I suffered the worst fever in my life.. =S
And not forgetting my bro's b'day..
- A trip to PD where we got conned (damnit).. Also when the 6th Southern Regionals was held.. Busy busy busy.. Miss Hon Joe's farewell (double damnit) as he was flying off to India.. And my dad's b'day.. Hehe..
- The month where I finally found out the truth about my friends (yes, itz still in memory) but I have already forgive all of them.. Yet, it changes my perceptions about things, on how naive I was.. Best thing is, May is where I turned 19.. However, things when down smoothly in the end.. =) Also trip to Penang, which was probably the best trip of the year.. =D
- Now this gotta be the saddest month in my entire life.. Disappointment, sorrow and anger.. I shall not elaborate on this but if u all really want to know, refer back to my post in June.. Till now, I'm still puzzled over the system.. A system that I have given up hope on.. However, a silver lining emerge at the end of in the end of it.. Entrance into AIMST.. And a shot to pursue my long live dream.
- An interview for a scholarship that didn't materialize and preparations for me to leave my home.. I'm still working thou..
- The big day came and I left Seremban to a place known as Farmer's River (Sungai Petani).. Thank God I was able to settle down quickly.. And so it begins, a new chapter in my life.. Another story to write after once has ended..
- Adjusting back to study mode, learning new stuff and of course, helping out in the Kabadi competition which was by far the best event I participated this year.. Blek.. Also the month where a lot of my friends flew to their respective unis in overseas, namely India, UK and Russia..
- My first test in medical program and also a week break.. Not to mention I went Penang 3 times.. LOL!! End of 1st half of sem 1, begining of the 2nd half..
- Mum's birthday which I was not there to celebrate.. Results out from the first test.. Glad I pass all; wish I could do better.. Got myself involve in more and more activities.. Just keep getting busier and busier.. And also was sick for 3 weeks.. =S
- Organized the Charity Night, which really took it's toll on me.. Attended the 20 Years Anniversary Dinner of Lasallian Youth Movement in Malaysia (a mouthful).. 2 weeks holiday break mark the end of my sem 1 and begining of sem 2 when i resume next Monday.. Christmas time! And an awesome party! Supposedly to prepare for my 2nd test yet here I am blogging.. =p And now we have come to an end..
So here we are, staring at the end of one year, eagerly awaiting the next.. New resolutions are for sure the menu for the day this Friday (somehow, they won't last) and of course hoping for a better year.. =) More experience, more challenges, more fun.. Stay tune and till then
Sunday, December 27, 2009
It was sooooo good to see old friends, some I haven't seen in a few months or maybe years.. XD Plus everyone had a great time.. So thank you all who came to my party.. You guys and gals really make it happening, without you, it won't be a party at all..
Hopefully my next party, more people can turn up.. Of course, those of u who came are sure eagerly awaiting the next one.. Most probably another Christmas party cause CNY holidays is toooooo short for me and during my birthday it'll be toooooo close to my 4th exam.. =(
TAKE CARE AND ALL THE BEST TO EVERYONE!!!
Friday, December 25, 2009
By next Friday I'll be back in campus.. Another week left in Seremban.. Can't say I accomplished much.. Relatives came down.. I only caught up with 1 friend for yam cha.. Another invitation for lunch today.. Btw, Christmas is fattening.. I had 1 breakfast, 2 rounds of lunch and a heavy buffet dinner.. Not to mention the dinner at my place tomorrow.. Gosh.. All those weight I lost are coming back to haunt me.. T.T
And also would like to wish all my friends who are going back to uni to have a safe journey.. Some are taking the bus, others driving and even some by flights.. Hope you all reach ur destination safe and sound.. And hopefully we all can catch up another time in the near future..
Hitting back to the books again.. *shivers at the sight of piling notes*

Too many medical varsities
I READ with concern the worries of Concerned Doctor (The Star, Dec 10).
I have a daughter who just started on the medical programme in a private university up north. When I first saw the campus I was impressed with the large expanse of open space, the grandeur of the buildings and the excellent sports facilities including an Olympic-size swimming pool.
However, after a few months in this place, my daughter has complained to me about several things which are not right with this university. The lecture halls are cramped and some of them are not really suitable for lectures.
Lab facilities and equipment are shockingly lacking. Because of the large number of students involved (more than 200!), students are divided into groups of 10 or even more to share equipment.
The most frightening thing is the shortage of lecturers. There are departments with inexperienced junior lecturers who deliver lectures without actually understanding what they are delivering!
My daughter assures me that these are not only her opinions but those of other students as well.
In less than five years there will be three batches of students in the clinical years (years three to five). So, there will be at least 600 students being posted to the various hospitals in Kedah for their clinical training.
I believe the two main hospitals are in Sungai Petani and Alor Setar. Will these two main hospitals be able to cope with so many students?
Secondly and even more importantly, will the students receive adequate training? And if not, won’t they be a danger to patients?
Although I am a teacher and not a doctor, I have seen some of the questions set by the lecturers of that university and feel that they lack quality. Most of the questions merely require students to reproduce what is being taught in lectures, and very few require students to think about what they have studied.
Is this the sort of education expected from universities, i.e. to train students to memorise facts and not think?
I agree with Concerned Doctor that too many medical colleges are being set up in this country; in fact, they are mushrooming all over the place. There are now more than 20 universities/colleges in this country offering a medical programme.
At this rate, there will definitely be a surplus of doctors in no time. But what kind of doctors are we producing? Are they trained enough, and will they be good enough just prescribing cough mixtures and painkillers?
I believe the MMC/MQA should do spot checks on all universities (especially private ones) offering medicine and not just during accreditations. They should ensure these universities have adequate lecturers and sufficient facilities.
As a parent I am paying good money for my daughter’s education, and I expect that she receives it! Private universities should not just think of how much money they can make, but also ensure that students are properly trained and educated.
Now for my thoughts on the article.. A lot of the points mentioned above are clearly inaccurate..
1. Lecture halls are cramped with students.. FYI, AIMST Lecture Theater 1 can fit up to 282 students.. Currently my batch has 200 students + 14 repeaters + 15 new students from Andalas.. We still got ample of seats to sit in.. And the sitting arrangement in the lecture hall is properly done, yet some people still complain here and there..
2. Lacking of lab equipments??? PLEASE!! There's only 2-3 students to a microscope, which is the most important tool of all.. Furthermore, by working in this small groups, we can actually discuss the experiment procedures and increase our understanding.. Of course, there were 1-2 experiments where a number of us cramped together but the lecturer let us to do the experiment over and over again so that everyone has a chance to do the experiment..
3. Shortage of lecturers? This is only a temporary problem in only one department in the medical faculty.. And it'll only last 2 months.. Furthermore, we got tons of experienced and very good lecturers.. The medical faculty has no less than 10 professors, a lot more associate professors and a good deal of lecturers.. And if the lecturers are not good to begin with, AIMST will not hire them..
Now for some additional points of mine:
1. AIMST is the ONLY PRIVATE UNIVERSITY in MALAYSIA that has CADAVERS!! No other private uni in Malaysia has that kind of facility.. Furthermore, our anatomy museum is complete, comparable to the major local unis..
2. AIMST is still by far the cheapest private uni to study medicine.. At 220k, the closest competitor is UCSI and that's not even an MBBS degree..
3. 200 students is nothing.. Try local unis, try private unis like IMU and see the amount of students u get in every year.. If u wanted a 1 to 1 session, then by all means please go to that uni that has such a service..
4. The condition of AIMST is much better compare to many other unis, be it local or private.. Yes, I agree the food is terrible at times, however, do try the local uni side and then come back to give ur comment.. THE GRASS IS NEVER GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE!!
There are load of points I could mention but those are the important ones.. Looking back, I never regretted making the move to come here.. 4 months down the road and I'm happy with my life in my uni.. Plus, SP has a lot of great food, if u noe where to find them whenever ur bored with the hostel food.. =p
This is the same quote I used over and over again and thus I'll use it here also to conclude the above letter.. YOU choose to come to AIMST, YOU make your own decision, no one forced YOU or pointed a gun into your head asking YOU to come here, so in the end quit YOUR whining and live with the decision that YOU have made..
That's all folks..

Anyhow, just to add something into my miserable looking blog, here are some highlights of this month that happened so far in my uni life..
10th Dec - Padang Charity Night
People might think, "Oh, another charity night.. Boring!!" Let me tell u something, u all are sooooo wrong.. It was probably one of the best events that I gotten myself involved in.. Well, 2 weeks of sacrificing sleep, studies and er... Laptop.. XD was really worth it in the end.. Hehe.. Turned out to be a real success.. Lots of photos can be seen in my FB profile (of course, those which I am tagged in la..) Plus we came out in TV.. Not bad for a uni event eh.. Anyhow, the concert was just superb.. Kudos to all those who have worked their socks off to make it a very successful event..
12th Dec - 20th Year Anniversary Celebration Dinner
OK, here is another LaSallian event in SMI, Ipoh.. This time, we were celebrating the 20th year of the LaSallian youth movement here in Malaysia.. Originally started in 1989, nobody expected that it'll last that long.. However, when u think of St. John Baptist De La Salle's work about 350 years ago, what's 20 years rite? =p Anyhow, it was a very very memorable event.. Met quite a number of my convention mates back at the dinner, some after 2 years.. Plus I took the opportunity to tour around Ipoh, looking for food.. Haha.. So in the end, was really worth the trip..
16th Dec - Levite's Christmas Gig
Now this just occured a few hours ago.. Levite's is the name of my Christian Fellowship group (I think) and this was the 4th concert beginning since 2006.. (hopefully my history is rite) Anyhow, loads of performances like drama, choir and dances were performed.. Not forgetting an awesome sermon by Pastor Ryan, it was more of a laughing session but the message was very clear.. Totally worth the time.. AMEN!!!
So later at night I'll be going back to Seremban.. Gosh.. Been like ages since I went back.. Later in the morning I volunteered myself to be the 'patient' in an examination for 2nd year medic students.. At least this gives me the opportunity to understand the exam structure..
Not to mention about my exam in another 2 weeks time.. But before that is my Christmas gathering.. Those who want more info pls PM me in FB or SMS me.. That's all for now folks.. Long update huh.. Take care people.. God bless!!
Thursday, November 26, 2009
Time really flies.. I just looked back at my post on this blog.. And it's already more than 1 year since I started the blog.. And now, with me doing this course, the weeks are just moving away.. Like super super fast.. Sooner or later it'll be Christmas, then CNY, a few CAs, etc..
And I haven't study a single crap for 2 whole days.. That's like a record!! LOL!! Yesterday after lab went swimming then went for the Christmas party in AIMST.. I'll try to get the pictures/videos that our professional photographers took during the party.. One word, awesome.. Seriously, my batch has a lot of talented people.. LOL!!
Then today went makan LeBoss.. First time wei.. Not bad la.. Quite worth it, portion is big, so money well spent.. Not to mention last night midnight supper in Sungai Petani (from here onwards it'll be known as SP in my blog.. XD)
2nd CA coming up quite soon.. Haiz.. Another exam again.. Feel like one just over the other day.. =( Oh well, gotta hit the books again.. Yeah rite, not going to happen, not today at least.. LOL!!
Btw, to all my friends who'll be in Seremban during Christmas, 26th December at 7pm, gathering at my house.. Come one, come all!! XD

For I managed to pass all the 6 papers in my 1st Continuous Assessment!!
Now, I'll take this to work harder and go further in my education life.. It's a great motivation and also a wake up call for me..
Also to all my batchmates who scored extremely well, congrats.. And to those who didn't do so well, don't worry so much.. There's still 3 more CAs to go before our finals.. Let us all work hard together to achieve our dream!!
God bless everyone!! AMEN!!
Thursday, November 12, 2009
There are people in the batch who just solely think for themselves.. Who do not even bother to consult others before they go straight to the people higher up.. Getting other people into trouble.. I pity one of our lecturers, who has struggled so hard to overcome our batch's 'overcrowding' problem.. The lecturer has virtually gave up hope on our batch and it is a handful of us that are trying not to make that happen.. Yes, it's not your fault that the batch is so big, but nobody even asked you to come to AIMST.. You make the decision yourself, so stop whining and live with it..
Sometimes people just don't listen.. I look at our class rep, everyday working his butt off for the class.. Canceling classes, reshuffling them.. I look at our class treasurers, group leaders and material managers; whom everyday try to do the best for the batch.. Not only people don't appreciate your helpfulness towards the batch (expected) but they can criticize, complain and whine all the way.. And the best thing? They won't even bother to take up the post.. So here's my thought, IF YOU CAN'T TAKE UP THE RESPONSIBILITY, STOP YOUR YAPPING!!
To all my batchmates who are or will be reading this, I hope you don't take this the wrong way.. Nothing is perfect in this world and being 'childlish' won't get you very far in this world.. So I hope that everyone will understand each other better from now onwards, at least be thankful that they are some people who are willing to help the batch..

As for the results.. *silence* Not going to mention a word.. Not yet.. Hehe.. Go and guess people.. Adios!!

Dr. Schambaugh, of the University of Oklahoma School of Chemical Engineering, Final Exam question for May of 1997. Dr. Schambaugh is known for asking questions such as, "why do airplanes fly?" on his final exams. His one and only final exam question in May 1997 for his Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer II class was: "Is hell exothermic or endothermic? Support your answer with proof."
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:
"First, We postulate that if souls exist, then they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving? I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it will not leave.
Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for souls entering hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, then you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and souls go to hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change in volume in hell. Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant. Two options exist:
- If hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter hell, then the temperature and pressure in hell will increase until all hell breaks loose.
- If hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until hell freezes over.
So which is it? If we accept the quote given to me by Theresa Manyan during Freshman year, "that it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you" and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then Option 2 cannot be true...Thus, hell is exothermic."
The student, Tim Graham, got the only A.

Time pass really really fast.. I don't think I did much during this holidays except eat, sleep and play my laptop.. Tried to finish my assignments but they are still there, waiting to be touched.. LOL!! And my studies? Don't talk about them, haven't even really began to revise yet.. And I got 3 exams after my holidays.. Great..
Nothing much to update thou.. Other than manage to eat home cooked food (finally), sleeping till lunch time and er... Being very unproductive.. LOL!! Visited 2 friends over the Deepavali, thank you guys for inviting me over.. And also just going out with parents..
To all my friends who'll be having their exams soon, local unis especially, I wish u all the best.. Gambateh!! And to the others who are having holidays, enjoy it to the max (providing u don't have exams after ur holidays.. =p)
Thursday, October 15, 2009
Yesterday received information in the afternoon that our exam for today was canceled (more like postponed). I was like "Again??!!" So was contemplating whether to stick with my current schedule which was to go back tonight or change the ticket.. In the end, I paid 4 bucks for yesterday's night ticket and now I'm back home!! =)
10 days holiday sounds like fun eh? NOT!! I got 2 assignments and now thanks to that postponement, 4 exams when I get back to uni.. Have to study and all.. Haiz.. So much for my holidays.. However, as for now, ENJOY FIRST!! XD
And some might ask, how was the exam? 3 words: Not Enough TIME!! So many questions, so little time.. Gosh.. OK, maybe it's been a while (like nearly a year) I've never sat for an exam.. So it'll take time to adjust.. However, this is an eye opener for me to what is to come next.. After all, 1st CA is supposedly 'the easiest'.
Btw, anyone going for the La Sallian dinner? If anyone is going do let me know.. I so wanna go!! Take care people!!

How can your mood for your exam be spoiled?
Postponement of the exam!
That's right people. For the first time in my studying life, an exam is postponed when it was suppose to begin. It was like WTF!! You studied till your butt drop (OK, being dramatic here) and then BOOM!! That happens.. Haiz.. Seriously WTF la.. Really spoiled my mood for studying..
Then there was the idea of having the exam at 3pm or after Deepavali.. Smartly most of my batch mates said after Deepavali.. I guess they fail to see that after Deepavali, we will be super super super busy..
Oh well, gotta move forward I guess.. There'll be no holidays for me.. I mean figuratively speaking.. Since I got 3 assignments and 3 test to study for during the holidays.. Shit.. Maybe can squeeze in a yam cha or two but depends on how many of u guys will be back during Deepavali..
Time to study again.. Later people..
Monday, October 5, 2009
Kinda sad rite? Gone are the good old days where I can go out to cinemas, mamak stalls, can just play with my friends and 38 around.. I really miss my school days.. And I really miss home.. =( Especially good old home cook food!! AIMST food is getting routine also ---> same taste, same style..
Now with my 1st CA coming up, it's really just hitting the books (or papers) every night till dunno what time.. It's so scary.. Honestly I never worked this hard in my study life, as in every night just sitting and reading.. Don't worry, I ain't going bonkers, I still know how to enjoy every little bit of life I can get right now.. =)
After CA is my 1 week holiday!! Whee!!! So happy.. Get to go back home for a week, finally.. Assignments will pile up thou.. Haiz..
Btw, pictures on the Kabadi competition will be posted up after my CA is done.. Cause:
1) I do not have time
2) The internet in my room is dead, so I'm using a highly unstable WiFi
To those who are having exams soon, especially local uni friends, good luck and do your best!! Guess the same can be said for me.. LOL!! Oyasumi nasai!
Sunday, September 27, 2009
It was a very fun and exciting experience.. I mean to get to know other students from other countries, be friends with them, learn their culture, etc.. And the team I LOed was a bunch of happy go lucky people.. Hopefully my mandarin improves after this.. 1 of them can speak English, thank God, or not really have hard time lor..
Done a lot of things.. Most memorable was going to Penang with them on Saturday afternoon.. Had to make sure everything was running smoothly from start to finish.. I thank and am grateful to Bong Kuan Wen, my fellow LO for Chinese Taipei, for doing a great job.. =) Btw FYI, the whole Penang trip was sponsored by a Dato' if I'm not mistaken.. Including the dinner at a very expensive Seafood Restaurant, Bali Hai.. XD Not to mention that the President of Chinese Taipei Kabadi Association gave us both cash and some souvenirs as a token of appreciation.. Now that was really out of the blues..
It was really tiring and yesterday night was quite piss.. Just because some political fellows came down all of us, the LO, were forgotten.. I mean we had to eat leftovers for our dinner for God sake.. Honestly, Malaysians still need a major change in their ethics..
Got pictures to share but all in my friend's cameras.. Another reason for me to go and get one ASAP!! Arg!! Back to studies.. I never touched my book since Raya.. Later people..
P.S. For those who wanna know what is Kabadi, go Google it, lazy wanna explain.. Even I learned new rules and stuff from the technical officers.. XD
Thursday, September 24, 2009
Cause I became the Liaison Officer for the 2nd Asian Junior Kabaddi Championship 2009.. Held in AIMST, it's from 24th - 27th Sept; but my duty officially starts tomorrow..
I'll be in charge of the Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) Boys team.. Gosh.. And I can't speak Mandarin.. XD Oh well, hopefully it can work out.. Haven't met the team yet but they should be here about now..
So no studies, no FB, no yam cha.. Just work, work and work.. Hopefully the experience that I'm going to get is worthwhile.. Then at least no regrets.. I'm sure it'll be loads of fun.. And tiredness.. =p
P.S. For those who dunno what is Kabaddi, go Google it.. I lazy wanna explain.. =)
Wednesday, September 23, 2009
I mean, it felt like only yesterday that I came back from AIMST and now, I'm back in AIMST.. Luckily today no class.. However, I felt I didn't accomplished much during my time in Seremban.. Guess was going out more than being at home.. LOL!!
Anyhow, my CA is like 2 weeks from now.. Gosh, it's a scary thought.. How long since I sat for a test.. XD Oh well, life moves on I guess.. Just do my best and hopefully I can get some good results..
Btw, last Sunday's MU vs MC game was probably the best derby I ever saw.. And also the best game of the season so far but of course, the season still has a long way to go.. Glory glory Man United!!
Saturday, September 19, 2009
That's right people, yours truly has come back to the Land of Siew Pau.. Reached back here around 8pm last night and then went straight for a movie, G-Force.. Not an awesome movie but still had a nice laugh.. =p
My holiday is a short one thou, it's actually up to Wednesday but by Tuesday night I'm going back.. A few reasons for this thou:
1) Class on Wednesday was canceled after I purchased my ticket.. Grr...
2) Thursday is going to be a long long long day..
3) I've volunteered for the 2nd Asian Youth Kabadi Championship, so that's going to take up a lot of my time..
So going back early seems to be a good thing, at least I can tidur during Wednesday.. Haha..
And coming back, thou for holidays = no holidays for me.. 2 assignments, 12 Histology drawings and a bunch of revision to do.. Not to mentioned my exam is like 3 weeks away.. Gosh, time sure flies.. During holidays was like urg... So slow.. Now, ALAMAK, NO TIME!!
So hopefully I can maximize my holidays.. Yam cha gang, call me out when u guys are free!! XD
Monday, September 14, 2009
Well, reason was simple.. I was doing my entrepreneurship project.. And it took up a lot of my time.. Seriously.. Started on Saturday.. Initially I didn't wanted to follow the group to go and interview this doctor who owns a very successful clinic, but I guess I got bored of AIMST, so I went.. LOL!!
So left AIMST about 3pm on Sat with 6 others in 2 cars.. The venue? AEON Jusco Seberang Prai.. Haha.. And that Jusco is like 3x bigger than our S2 Jusco.. -___- A lot of nice shops were there, I was particularly interested in the food shops.. Haha.. Nando's, Baskin Robbin, etc..
So we met this doctor, Dr. Lim and he gave us a very good interview session.. Very friendly, very approachable.. We had a good time with him, he even gave us his business card and stuff.. Hehe.. And not forgetting photos.. XD
After that just lepak and enjoy kat Jusco la.. Supposedly to come back at 8pm, end up reaching AIMST 11.30pm cuz we lepak here and there.. One of the best outings in northern region la.. LOL!!
Then came the hard part la, doing the assignment.. Did it on Sunday from like 9pm till 2am and just now from 9pm till like 1am.. At last it was done.. Glad it was done, wanted to get that thing out of my system.. Now just a bunch of Histology drawings, 2 Malaysian Studies essays, a Biochemistry lab report and a Malaysian Studies presentation to go.. Doesn't sound like very little.. -.-"
And now I leave u all with some pictures.. =)
Thursday, September 10, 2009
The line was long, like really really long.. Imagine a large square and u have two of it sides fully lined up with people until they lined up outside the cafeteria.. Gosh, I guess special food do attract people..
It was worth the wait thou, Chicken Chop today was just delicious.. A break from the normal food.. Although Monday's mutton is still the best.. Haha..
Btw. the above picture is just a small part of the line, showing that the line was until outside the cafe.. =p
Monday, September 7, 2009
Nothing much happened on Saturday.. Except study, study, study.. Crazy la.. I was never this hardworking.. XD So dunno wanna say how sad my life is or bangga that I'm can study so much.. I think I'll go for the former.. =p
On Sunday, was really my lazy day la.. Off terus.. Sleep until noon, went out for lunch.. Went for a jog then start lazing around.. And there's a nice story about lunch..
See, my housemates decided to go out for lunch, presumably sick of AIMST food ady.. Haha.. So I tagged along.. Wanted to go find some pork.. Long time didn't eat those ady.. LOL!! So away we go, left around 1pm, go searching for 'siew ba' or roasted pork.. Sadly, town had traffic jam (Kedah works on Sundays) and thus delayed until 2pm only find place to eat.. Even bigger disappointment is that the place all finished selling food ady..
So here we are, dead hungry, I was thinking to just hit McDonald's or Riddick's Fried Chicken (RFC) ) *note: I think this is an imitation of KFC* Rounded around town, finally found a small corner shop.. And to our luck, they sell pork rice.. So mission accomplished.. Haha.. Next time we got try RFC.. XD
And today got mutton.. Fuuh.. Syok la, soft and supple.. Haha.. Later got class again.. Haiz.. Malaysian Studies.. Seriously, it's just a repeat of secondary school History.. Except it's in English.. Oh well, what to do, if we don't pass this, we can't graduate even thou if you're a dean list student.. So just study and pass la.. What the heck.. Later people..
Friday, September 4, 2009
Let's see, this week I received 2 assignments, including the 4 assignments from the previous week.. Gosh.. And here I was thinking MBBS has no assignments.. How wrong was I.. =p
A lot of stuff to learn.. Interesting but complicating stuff.. All filling up the empty spaces in my brain.. Sooner or later I'm going to need a secondary brain just to take up all the information..
AIMST is just superb.. No regrets coming here.. Joined Christian Fellowship (CF), a very cool gathering.. A lot of seniors there.. And also making new friends every day.. Just awesome.. =)
So back to studies again for me, some people are scarring the SHIT out of me, saying the fail rate is high, MBBS is crazy tough, etc.. Thank God I have parents who do not pressurize me in doing anything, just letting me be with flow and do the best I can.. Love them.. =D

Did some stuff back here.. Here's a small summary:-
Reached Seremban at 5.45am.. Now I had to transfer bus at the Nilai rest stop for the bus I was sitting on was bound for Johor.. Luckily I was awake, if not I'll find myself in Johor.. LOL!! Went a very early morning breakfast with my dad.. First pork in 2 weeks!! XD After that balik tidur lah.. Since I only slept for like 4 hours on the bus.. XD
Woke up just in time for lunch, went to Domino's for pizza.. Hehe.. Quite nice.. Love it.. After that more sleep and later dinner at Kah Soon, a Chinese Restaurant and my 2nd all time favourite place.. =p Later at night had yam cha with friends.. Finally met up with Hon Joe, just before he flew back to India.. His two weeks holiday seemed very short.. LOL!! Then watched the MU vs Arsenal game.. MU won!! Syok!!
Today went to church then lunch was fish ball mee.. Hehe.. Came back and did some studies, sleep again and now here I am blogging.. Later going out with my friend for a drink.. Tomorrow I'm leaving at 11pm, hitting back SP around 6am.. Straight off to lectures from there.. Geng rite? =p
So guess that's all for now.. Happy Merdeka and Happy Holidays to all my friends!!

Anyhow, things are heating up now.. Learning more and more stuff and doubts are beginning to creep in.. Yet it's very interesting.. I'm sure the clinical experience will be totally new to me and all my batch mates but for now, we need to concentrate of passing the first year and subsequent years.. =p It's a loooooong journey I'll say..
And I'm leaving for Seremban in about 7 hours time.. Bus at 9.30pm but need to go there early.. Will reach Seremban probably around 5.30am, maybe earlier.. U know how bus people are at night.. =S So see u all real soon!!

And where your love has always been enough for me;
I'm not running from, no, I think you got me all wrong;
I don't regret this life I choose for me;
But these places and these faces are getting old;
And I managed to find a church here in SP.. Not really my denomination but guess can't really complain.. After all, worshiping God is the most important thing, everything else comes second.. So yeah, am relieved to managed to find one..
Third week is beginning soon.. And gosh, how time flies.. By next week it'll be a month I'm already in AIMST.. Then Raya will come followed by my first CA and after that 1 week break for Deepavalli.. Arg.. Now time move so fast.. Holiday it moves sooooo slow.. -.-" That's life I guess, time flies while ur studying and flies faster when ur having fun.. (not for me thou.. haha..)
So see u all guys and gals next week!! (if there is anyone left in Seremban that is..)

Lectures began but not at full force.. Yet something tells me I'm going to be in a lot of shit for this course.. Starting already got assignment and stuff to memorise.. Haiz.. Makes me wonder what did I get myself into.. Yet, something will forever keep me going and that is... I'M ACHIEVING MY DREAM!!!
Nothing much on updates so far.. Just that have to study hard and smart.. My books arrived today.. That's a big relief.. And they don't cost cheap.. That's the sad part.. However, looking at a positive side, it's going to be a lifetime investment.. Hey, if we can spend few hundred bucks on a girl that probably won't be with you in a few years time, why not spend it on books which can be your companion for the rest of your life?? LOL!! Hopefully those words won't come back and haunt me..
And I managed to DL FIFA 09 into my notebook.. OK, now that could be bad news.. *self control needed, self control!!!* Gotta run now, assignments on Malaysian Studies are due soon.. Later people...
Thursday, August 13, 2009
Yesterday was the longest day yet.. Full timetable from 9am till 10pm.. Of course lots of in between breaks.. And met many many new seniors, not to mention made a bunch of new friends.. It's not easy knowing all 192 people in my batch k..
I did say the best part of yesterday was the games orientation with seniors.. Remember what we did in F6? Something similiar.. 8 groups, 8 stations, scattered around the uni (running was hell) and with crazy seniors.. LOL!! Had loads of fun.. Dead tired too.. Plus was soaked to the max cause of rain+kena poured water cukup-cukup.. Anyhow, it was still a nice experience la.. Plus all the cheers until my voice also gone ady..
Today was visitation to the Clinical Skills Lab (CSL) and Multi Disciplinary Lab (MDL).. CSL is like sooooo cool.. U get to practise and test yourself with all the mannequins there, making sure u dun do the same mistake on a real patient.. That we have to wait to year 2.. And I really hope I can pull it through.. So much to learn, and they say 1st year is the worst.. So we wait and c k.. *prays hard*
After this post, I dunno when my next post will be.. Classes starting, a lot of shit is going to happen and a whole new experience.. So to my avid readers, be patient k?? Till the next post, bye ppl!!!
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Today is when our orientation finally kicked off.. With a few speeches and later meeting up with seniors especially from batch 9 & 13.. Then division into orientation groups and meetings and etc.. Gosh, even before starting my course already started busy ady.. For now la.. Haha..
So how I find AIMST so far?? After exploring every loop and corner, it doesn't seem that huge in the end.. But it still big la.. And many facilities are available.. My roommates and housemates are very nice people.. Can get along so far.. I'm adapting fine for now.. Wait la till classes begin..
Speaking of classes, I received my timetable today.. Gosh.. It's soooo full.. From 8am till 5pm.. And then later got extra compulsory LAN and elective subjects.. That'll be from 5pm till 7pm.. O.o Gosh, going to suffer like shit.. But I asked for this course, it's a course I wanted to do since 8 years old.. So shouldn't complain now rite?? LOL!!
Tomorrow is going to be a full day.. From 9am to 10pm.. Orientation day mah.. With the works.. So yeah, maybe for the first time I can't online.. I've been onlining for like 2 hours a day.. LOL!! So until for more updates, bye!!!
Monday, August 10, 2009
And my room?? Thou it's four to a room, it's pretty big.. Enough space to store everything.. So it's kinda cool.. And kinda worth the monthly rental.. Food is alrite, at least it's edible.. Everything else looks nice.. It has a Grand Hall, Olympic size swimming pool, track and field with full soccer pitch, futsal court, gym, basketball court, the list is endless.. Not to mention the equipment is top notch..
Just kinda excited about it.. Starting studies and all.. This whole week is just going to be orientation.. Gotta wake up early tomorrow.. Arg.. No more sleeping in for me ady.. Haiz.. But this is what I wanted to do from young, and now I gotta chance, so I ain't going to waste it.. Oh well, at least the internet speed connection here is pretty fast.. Beats my house streamyx.. LOL!!
More updates to come soon, if I have the time.. =p
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
Well, I'll be leaving this coming Friday.. Evening to be exact, cause have to wait for my bro to finish.. Orientation begins the following Monday.. Going down to Ipoh to visit my uncles and aunts, then heading down to Kulim to stay at my cousin's place.. From there only I head down to AIMST, that'll be Monday morning..
So how are preparations so far? Kinda slow I guess.. I got most of my stuff.. Now just wanna pack them into the bag.. So lazy la.. =p Will get it done I guess.. I heard got people semangat pack stuff about a week before their uni started.. I think I'll do it the day before I leave.. HAHA!!
What am I to expect? I dunno.. It's a new chapter, a really BIG NEW chapter in my life.. Uni is something I won't take lightly.. After all, with all the advised my family, friends and relatives have given to me, I certainly won't want to disappoint any of them.. I'll definitely miss my family, my friends and all the fond memories that I had back in secondary school.. Life has to move on I guess.. And from then on, I'll be looking at it from a different perspective, the undergrad perspective..
That's all for now I guess.. Hopefully I can link up with an internet connection once I reach that.. That lone LAN port is MINE!!! MUAHAHA!!! XD
Saturday, July 25, 2009
Oh well, SPI has really changed.. New hall (OK, now old ady), new toilets, new computer lab.. Gosh, they seem to be doing everything after my batch left.. It's dejavu I tell u.. The same case happened when we left SPI Primary.. Seems they have something against our batch.. >.<
The Canteen Day was nice.. Lots of food, games and events going on.. Well, the event was actually some YB who came to our school for visiting.. Not to mention there was some kind of education fair in the courtyard.. Sponsors?? Ain't sure.. Mostly who came are students but the car park was full.. Met many old friends, juniors especially.. Unfortunately only 4 people from my batch came.. And I was the only Sixth Former there.. How sad.. And Anidha is currently teaching in our school.. Haha!! At last, she finally graduated as a teacher and came back to her Alma Mater.. XD
Still, was a pleasant visit back to the school.. Seeing teachers and all.. Won't be my last visit thou, since I still fetch my bro back from school.. 2 more weeks people, 2 more weeks and Jason Tan won't exist in Seremban already.. Instead he'll be reincarnated in Kedah.. LOL!! Sounds so gay..
Thursday, July 23, 2009
IMU called me up today to inform me that I didn't get the scholarship.. Of course most people would be disappointed but I wasn't.. I think the it's because 95% of my mind was already made up on AIMST.. And even if I got the scholarship I would really have to see the terms and conditions.. So at least, thanks IMU for finally clearing my doubts..
Two weeks more before I begin a new chapter in my life.. What would I expect from it? Will I be able to handle it, let alone finish the journey? All these questions can only be answered when I'm there and studying.. It'll be a very busy a few weeks for me, so I might not update much, but I will when I get the time..
So off I go then, to prepare for the journey awaits me.. And hopefully 5 years down the road, my dream will be finally realised.. =)
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
So what's the worst movie that I've watched so far?? Here it is.. TADAA!!!!
Utterly disappointing.. Well, I kinda expected it since the book wasn't all that great.. But somehow the book turned out to be better than the movie.. The movie was very very dry, there was not thrill into it and mostly it's about romance with one or two decent laugh scenes.. 5th movie was better (and I was already hating the 5th movie)..
No magic, no fighting, no action, no nothing.. And when u have the Harry Potter craze fans saying bad things about this movie, u'll know it's going to be sucky.. Some say it was a teaser for the upcoming 7th and 8th film.. Oh, those two films better be 10x better than this piece of shit.. After all it's going to be a two part film, 2.75 hours each solely on the 7th book.. And the 7th book rocks..
Why I watched it? For fun I guess.. However this is one movie that's not making my DVD racks this year.. Well, guess they won't be a movie that as disappointing as this for the year.. Next up on the list.. G.I. Joe.. Now that'll be interesting..
Alas, it was not meant to be.. Not only we spent 3 hours sitting there waiting patiently, I even lost a fishing rod!!! T.T Technically, the Pating fish stole it.. Here how it went down...
*me sitting by the rod, looking at it*
*fren walks over* "eh, u got bread ah?? (it's bait)
"got" *rod suddenly moves, falls to the ground*
"shit!! the rod!!" *both of us staring at rod as it drops into the lake*
*bye bye rod*
Damn man.. and it was my fren's lucky rod too.. Caught so many big fishes with it.. However, nearly lost it so many times too.. Like 3-4 times?? Feel damn bad la... Shit like this do happen thou.. So what's next? Buy new rod lor, share the cost lor.. Luckily the rod and reel now on discount, 40% and 30% each.. So only have to come out around RM 60 for the new one.. Oh well, at least I get 50% ownership on the new rod!! HAHA!!
Lesson of the day: The next time I see a Pating fish, I'm going to spear hook it!!

What manga I'm following?? Well, started with Naruto.. I only started watching the anime before my Trial STPM.. Pretty dull rite? Since it came out like 4 years ago.. Still, after watching all 220 episodes of anime, I still couldn't get enough of it.. So I started on the manga, Shippuden and guess what.. I finished the entire series (where it has stopped currently) in 10 days.. LOL!! That means I was doing 30-40 a day.. Haha..
So OK, was very sad.. Cause now, have to wait every week for a new one to appear.. Every Friday to be precise.. Then I was thinking, maybe I should start another one.. And I heard my friends said that Bleach was very good.. Not as good as Naruto but good enough to read.. So I started it and now I got hooked again.. >.<
Oh well, guess I'll just continue with Bleach.. Haha.. Later get started on One Piece, thou I dun feel like starting it, my friend said it's more cartoonish.. Will see how.. Time to catch up on Bleach.. Plot thickens now.. Later!!

Today was possibly the best fishing trip yet.. Why? Cause we (Rahul and me) caught 2 big fishes from our usual hunting ground.. And when I mean big, I mean big, weighing more than 1kg.. One was a Pating fish which was caught by Rahul and another is a Cat fish (Ikan Keli) caught by me.. And yeah, not to forget the two small little Tilapias we caught, too small for anything thou.. =p
Was really fun and exciting catching those fishes.. Not to mention the struggle we went through.. Made our 3 hours seem well worth it.. Alas, could have caught more.. Another Pating and Keli managed to get away while we were reeling them in.. Oh well, u can't have all of them..
And this time, I managed to get some photos.. =D So enjoy!!
That's all folks!!

The PPSMI is scrapped, Science and Maths are going back to Malay and other vernacular language.. How will this affect us? Well, maybe not me since I left school already but I really pity all the younger generations.. This is really turning us backwards, after so many arguments and debates about this.. Seriously shocking move!!
And where do we go from here? Try to conquer the world with BM?? Yes, BM is the national language and is used in many official functions and events.. However, the international language now is English.. That's the reason why our 4th PM proposed the PPSMI.. And in a few months with the new management, the whole thing is scrapped.. Wasted is 6 years of hard work, funds, training, etc.. And totally we'll be heading back to the stone age..
And here are some quotes (I deem it really unreasonable) by our DPM:
- Gap between rural & urban students has widened since PPSMI started.
- PPSMI would take 15-20 years to see effect; must consider repercussion on students.
- Make sure early formative years ie primary have the best teachers, then will see effect in 2-3 years vs 15-20 years.
- We realise PPSMI not working earlier, but have to be fair, so allow 1 cycle to finish.
- Decision made objectively for future of kids, not politics.
Seriously it doesn't make sense, any of the quotes.. I really don't know where we're heading man.. Sooner or later people will realise it's another mistake and it'll be reverted again.. KNNCCB BIG TIME!!!

This morning I attended my IMU Scholarship interview.. Set my alarm to ring at 7.30am, it never did, dunno why.. Ended up waking at 8.10am and was like SHIT!!! By the time I reach the train station already 8.50am, took the 9am train.. Inside the train was like "am so going to be late" kind of mood.. Luckily I managed to reach IMU around 10.15am.. That includes 5 minutes of "seperti rusa masuk ke kampung".. Seriously, I reach Sri Petaling station I was like totally blur, how am I to get to IMU.. Luckily I saw the bridge that crosses over to the back building..
Went it, sendiri pandai-pandai go find the Reception Area (found it somehow.. =D) and go wait there la.. Ms. Jacinta came out to take my certificates for verification and I just waited and waited and waited to be called in.. Turned out there were 6 people being interviewed today and I'm the 3rd person.. Some some other candidates and me Gerard Geethan of SJI.. So long never see him ady, like since 17th NLLC.. So was like catching up on good times and stuff..
Then my turn to enter for interview, there were 4 interviewers there.. All deans of different departments.. Started out quite nice, they are very nice and happy-go-lucky people, joke around and all.. Make u quite relax, don't really feel the tension.. Could be a test thou.. I personally divided them into 3 parts, 1st is about general stuff like where u stay, which school u go to and all.. Then 2nd part is verification of all the stuff I've written down, they just want to know more about what I do and all.. The 3rd part is where the challege starts, scenerarios where u as a 'doctor' would face and how would u overcome them..
It was quite hard and also make me feel nervous but then I just answered all their questions, fumbled once or twice (hope they didn't noticed) and well, it just happens la.. Last question really caught me off guard thou.. They ask me to give a 5 minute 'syarahan' (yeah, in BM) about AIDS.. LOL!!! Totally was cracking my head on how to form the words and all.. I think I did ok.. And the interviewers look happy, don't know if that means anything..
Anyhow, the interview is done for.. Now I just wait for the results which will be out somewhere end of the month.. If I do get this scholarship it's truely a blessing from God.. He has helped me a lot and I thank Him for everything that He has given to me.. Like my Pastor said, when one door is closed, other doors might be open until u find the right door to enter.. And now the waiting begins...

Same old, same old.. Preparing for uni, counting the days of boredom left, eat, sleep, do the normal human stuff.. Plus my working days are practically over.. Of course, lately I've been hooked on manga.. Proof --> I finished the entire Naruto Shipsuden series under 1 week!!! Now I guess I'll have to start on something new, maybe I should reach Bleach.. Haha.. Finish that in 2 weeks.. LOL!!
Wonder how all my friends are doing in uni.. Are they able to adapt? Will they enjoy it there? Well, guess they should be fine in their respective courses and unis.. Although I did get some early feedbacks.. The dorm sucks, there's lacking of facilities, orientation cacat, this and that.. Well, I guess nothing is perfect in this world, and after all we're looking at local uni.. Maintenance might not be top class.. And so is the service.. I read a comment by a reader on Tuesday.. Seems that they was a technical glitch at one of the universities, a top one some more, delaying the registration process by up to 6 hours.. LOL!!! And thoughts that we learned our mistake after the USM fiasco..
Speaking on the USM fiasco, that could be one of the many reasons why some students *ahem ahem* couldn't get a place in public university.. Thanks to that glitch, some 4500 students had to be given a place because the gov promised to do so.. This 4500, acording to reports, are just people who made the minimum requirements.. So well, since they had to give, the 4500 deserving students who were supposedly to get a place were left out cold.. One of the teachers commented, "It's the gov problem if USM screw up, they can't make the students pay for their mistake. If they make a promise, they should find a way to keep that promise without jeopardising other students." Nicely said, guess that will be one of those comments that would never make it up top..
And MU signed Michael Owen.. What's up with that?? OK, look at it as this way, MU signed him for free and at a reduced wage structure (heard it was a pay as u play basis).. And if Owen can rediscover his form that made him such a feared footballer 5 years ago, then yes, it's seriously a good signing for MU.. What's next for MU?? Maybe they should sign some very good players in very needed departments, like Joao Moutinho, Sergio Aguero and Douglas Costa.. Then maybe we won't miss CR that much.. Haha.. And anyone noticed, that in this bad economy, Real Madrid is spending money like water.. Imagine if all those millions were used on a better cause for humanity.. Think about it.. =p

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU IN YOUR RESPECTIVE COURSE AND UNIVERSITY!!
HOPE YOU'LL TOTALLY ENJOY IT THERE!!
TAKE CARE AND KEEP IN TOUCH!!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!

It was a great feeling, seeing old friends together again, some I haven't seen since I left school at the end of 2006... And as usual, we turn a nice western restaurant into a typical mamak stall... Hats off to the waiters and waitresses who patiently took our order and serving our food, they'll probably be thinking "I need a raise!!" LOL!!!
And as usual, we crap all the way from A-Z.. And Paulians are always famed of talking about any topic under the sun.. For example, a few of us started talking on economy, then to politics, then to something else and later to anime and finally to where is our next place for yam cha!! LOL!!! Told ya we're crazy... Also not to be forgotten are the pictures that we took, although most of them look dark and some are blur.. U can find them all Faidhi's & Narvin's FB profiles..
Totally awesome man yesterday, an evening not to be forgotten.. And sure, we'll plan a better reunion, this time try to get the whole class together... And find our next restaurant/mamak/stall to torture!!! HAHAHA!!! *grins evilly*

1. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: 'I am very rich. Marry me!' - That's Direct Marketing
2. You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a gorgeous girl. One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says: 'He's very rich. 'Marry him.' - That's Advertising
3. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day, you call and say: 'Hi, I'm very rich. 'Marry me.' - That's Telemarketing
4. You're at a party and see a gorgeous girl. You get up and straighten your tie, walk up to her and pour her a drink. You open the door (of the car) for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her a ride and then say: 'By the way, I'm rich. Will you 'Marry Me?' - That's Public Relations
5. You're at a party and see a gorgeous girl. She walks up to you and says: 'You are very rich! Will you marry me?' - That's Brand Recognition
6. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: 'I am very rich. Marry me!' She gives you a nice hard slap on your face. - That's Customer Feedback
7. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: 'I am very rich. Marry me!' And she introduces you to her husband. - That's demand and supply gap
8. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and before you say anything, another person come and tell her: 'I'm rich. Will you marry me?' and she goes with him. - That's competition eating into your market share
9. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and before you say: 'I'm rich, Marry me!' and your wife arrives. - That's restriction from entering new marketsAnd among all of them, number 6 looks possible almost every time.. HAHAHA!!!
Some asshole wrote it in Wikipedia and that drew a storm.. Luckily the moderators removed it, there's nothing to back it up!!
Phew, can breath easy again.. Looks like Harry Potter will still remain the same!! =D
The King of Pop, Michael Jackson passed away on Thursday after suffering a cardiac arrest.. He was a great singer and a good dancer.. Just at times controversy has been the downside of his career.. He'll forever be remembered as one of the greatest singers to ever lived.. And yes, his songs will be played even 50 years from now.. Goodbye Michael, may u rest in peace..
Another death and this I just stumbled across, don't know how true it is.. Rupert Grint, the actor who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, passed away at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, UK after reportedly suffered a massive stroke.. How true is that I'm not too sure myself, could be a fake, but if it's true, then it's yet another great loss to the industry..
Two blows in like 24 hours, that's gotta be hard to stomach..
*God I wish Rupert's death is fake..*

First off, I managed to watch Transformers:Revenge of The Fallen yesterday.. I thought no one will watch the movie at 10.30am, being a school day and all.. How wrong I was.. The cinema was packed to the brim!! OMG!! And how was the movie?? Quite good.. Hats off to the producing team, the cinematography, CGI effects, sound, movie plot was awesome.. Have a few very funny moments and one very nice fight scene.. Although some hardcore fans might be wishing for more.. In the end it all depends on the audience, for me, I wish the last major scene would like be extended.. (won't spoil it for those who haven't watch it)
After lunch, I went fishing with Rahul.. Back to the same old place, the Rasah Kemayan Acturial Pond.. Luck wasn't on my side I guess, caught one small tilapia, but Rahul definitely had loads of luck, he caught about 7 fishes including one medium size one.. And we, being all excited and all, when to try our luck at the big pond.. And wouldn't u believe it, we managed to hook the big 'pacu' fish.. And man it was huge!!! Only for one small problem, it got away!! Had such a strong pull, Rahul was struggling to pull it up.. Sadly, we had to let it go, or not the whole rod might have been lost.. Oh well, guess it wasn't man to be, but if that was caught, fuuh!! BIG BBQ DINNER!!
And lastly... The best news I've received after that sad UPU result.. I GOT ACCEPTED FOR ADMISSION INTO AIMST TO STUDY MEDICINE!!! Woohoo!!! One of the student affairs operator called me up to inform me that I was accepted.. I hope I listened correctly and it wasn't a dream, I was fishing when they called up.. So now just have to pay my deposit and I'll be off to this place:
If everything goes well, I'll be leaving for their Semeling campus in Bedong, Kedah on 10th August.. Now I'll pray hard and hopefully I'll be able to get a loan.. HIP HIP HOORAY!!!
And yeah, USA freaking beat Spain man... 2-0!!! I was like OMG!!! Now will be the Brazil-South Africa match.. I'm betting for a USA-South Africa final.. Man I hope I'm right.. =D

Carlos Tevez is leaving Manchester United and possibly to local rivals Manchester City.. I wished he did stay at MU, he was quite a player, not the best but his determination, personality and work rate is just amazing.. And I was certain that with Ronaldo's departure, he would stay since the opportunity for him in the first team will like brighten up.. Alas, although MU was willing to meet the £25.5 million needed to secure his services as well as making him one of the highest paid players in MU, Tevez has other plans of his own..
So what now? Ronaldo gone (never gonna miss him one bit) and now Tevez.. Suddenly it looks like everything is going from bad to worse for MU.. Their two key players over the last two seasons suddenly disappear.. Have no fear, Alex Ferguson is here.. I'm sure he'll do some nice purchases during the summer.. There are talks that a £30 million bid was put up front for Karim Benzema.. Not to mention the £17 million for Antonio Valencia and also possibly Ribery.. Marcel Desailly has urged Fergie to bid "as much as it takes" to purchase Ribery.. The former French international has put him as the top two wingers in the world, the other being, you guessed it, Ronaldo..
The summer transfer rumours has been buzzing a lot (I'm just talking about MU).. Here are a list of potential arrivals and departures.. (some sound pretty bizzare if u ask me)
and the 3 stated above - Antonio Valencia, Frank Ribery and Karim Benzema
and of course the two who already have left - Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez
Gotta agree with me, some do look ridicolous.. Oh well, they still be 2 months of buzzling activity especially when the window opens in July.. Let's just keep a close watch and see what happens.. =p
