Being in it's 3rd year, we're hopeful that more people will join in this event.. WWF Malaysia has done some serious promoting and stuff.. So on 28th March, for just an hour, from 8.30pm till 9.30pm, do make a stand and turn off all your lights (except essential ones) and hopefully such an act will do something to stop global warming..
La Sallian movement is also participating in the Earth Hour movement.. For more info visit their website at http://lasallianfriends.blogspot.com/

This is the time where we choose our own separate ways.. Where the road splits and all of us have our own calling to go to.. So far I got 3 friends leaving the country, and all 3 heading for the same destination, INDIA.. Nice country, with nice food.. Hey, I love Indian food ok.. Here, I would like to wish the best of luck to you all, especially the 2 who'll be flying off next week.. Another one, well, have to wait until Sept.. Sad...
As for me, I've applied numerous unis.. Locally la.. Hopefully I can get into one of them.. The wait will be a long one, only out in June, around there.. So well, while waiting, I rot at home.. Haha... Another chapter closes, another one begins.. I'll miss secondary school life, yes, to me F6 is still secondary school.. Will I have the same fun in uni, the same memories? Probably not, the things I hear from my seniors is that u dun really have much time to enjoy in uni.. Looks like the next few months is my final chance to make a last hurrah!! Well, at least I got the Genting trip to look forward to.. Lalala..
And WTH and WTF is wrong with MU???!!! SOBS!!!

My point being here is that back when we were primary school, the only thing that scared us is UPSR.. So out of our 6 years there, it scares us for like a few months? Then in secondary school we worry about PMR.. Once that's done is SPM, and about the results.. When the results are announced, some are joyful, others are bitter.. However both of them are still in a dilemma.. The joyful ones now have to decide what they want to do.. A Levels? Form 6? SAM? Overseas? The bitter ones too have their own set of problems.. Diploma? Form 6? Matriculation? So it's a never ending problem.. As life progresses, it just gets even worse..
Now I myself is in this situation.. Unlike F5 where you still enter a Pre-U programme and still managed to delay your decision making by at least 1 year, this is not the case once you finish Pre-U, in my case STPM.. I am grateful that God has given me good results and the fruits of labour has shown.. However, a question remains.. Who shall I become for the rest of my life? I am meaning occupation here, of course I'll be just me la.. Those of you who know me know very much what I want to do.. However, in this competitive and bias world, not all plans in life go according to what we want.. I'm confused about the universities I want and also my back up plans shall my primary plan go astray.. There's always the option for private but I do not want to burden my parents, they have struggled a lot for me already and the only way to repay them is to lessen their burden.. Overseas? Well, a possible destination but does is it any different from our private institutions.. Cheaper perhaps.. Recognised? Hope so..
Only less than a week to submit my application form to the UPU and I'm still unsure of what to choose.. Shall I just give it a shot hoping for the best? What happen if it backfires? Where does that leaves me? I need advice.. I need help.. I need a miracle..

OK.. Something just really pissed me off just now.. I can't believe how inconsiderate people are these days.. Especially parents.. I was like WTH!! when a friend of mine told me her problem..
My friend didn't meet her parent's expectations with her recent STPM results.. To me her results were quite OK.. After all she did managed to get more than 3.00 which is the requirement for most courses in unis this days.. And not like she failed or what.. Her mum was OK with it, of course my friend felt bad about herself for failing her parents but she got over with it.. And her mum too.. My friend admitted that she didn't put full effort, so her mum forgave her.. Problem started with her dad.. Her dad scolded her non-stop when he got back from overseas.. From day to night it was non-stop hammering and bickering.. U thought it'll be over in a few moments but no.. This has been going on until like now.. Her dad compared her to her other friends who did better, in a way saying she's the worst and all.. This is making my friend miserable, feeling like want to runaway, hating her dad.. I pity her for that.. After all she did, thou not her best, she did give her best shot at it.. And this is how she gets 'rewarded'.. Scolded, compared, mocked..
Another friend of mine did somewhat better.. She scored over 3.5 in her STPM CGPA and was very happy with her achievements.. After all, that is what she has targeted.. Yet her parents can come tell her, your target so low ah? Why can't scored higher? Why he/she can do it, why not you? I'll say this, WHY DUN U TRY IT FOR URSELF??!!!
Most parent's today do not understand what their children go through.. Do u think STPM is a breeze? Do u think by studying we can ace the exam? Is life really that simple? NO!!! STPM is hell.. And not only that, every single thing u do is hell.. I got some friends who even did well and yet still get reprimanded from their parents.. To me, the parents want something to show off.. Oh.. My son got 4 flat.. My daughter got into NUS.. RUBBISH!!! You parents might have all the plans in the world for your children, u can plan their studies, career even marriage.. But not all things in life go according to plan.. NEVER!! I'm glad to God to have understanding parents, who know the cycle of life.. However, how many parents are there out there similar to mine? Many? A few? Some? I do not know..
Parents love forcing their children to do something that they want.. How many students, don't go far, my friends, who complained their parents are forcing them into courses that they don't want or even shooting down their dreams and hopes for the future.. It's always their way not ours.. I can't tolerate this kind of people.. This is OUR LIFE, OUR FUTURE, OUR WAY OF HANDLING THINGS!! U can guide us, give us advice, protect us.. But to a certain extend.. How long you all will be here? Forever? Till the day we grow old and die? NO!! If you ever forced your child to become something that the child hates, you'll end up destroying not only your dreams and aspirations but also your child's future..
Parents are suppose to be the pillar of strenght for their child.. They should support their child's dreams, not crush them.. Give them moral support and guidance, not helping them to self-destruct.. You think you all might know what's the suffering we go through especially like STPM exams but you don't!! The stress, the trauma, the phobia.. It goes to a level where you want to kill yourself.. I myself publicly admit this, I've reached to a point where I just wanted to give up but I stayed strong.. So DO NOT PRESSURE US!! We are already under a lot.. That's all I'm asking for all the children out there..
Now about unis.. Am so confused now to what to choose.. I have a heading, now is only whether I can get it or not.. Thou my result is good, the competition will be forever stiff.. And not to mention about the competition from the matriculation students.. The unfairness in that.. That we have to work out butt off while they do 1/3 of what we do and get what they want while we suffer the dilemma.. Anyway, who said this world was ever fair? Choices, choices and dilemma.. Not a very nice combo.. Oh God please help me!!

Now for another major task.. Choosing a uni to study.. I pretty much have a heading to where I want to go, just now is choosing the right uni.. Damn, the problems never end.. Luckily I got 2 weeks for that.. Now I'll just sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labour.. =D

What's so bad about learning Maths and Science in English? My batch was the final batch to study these subjects in BM and when we went off to college, matriculation or F6, we did it all in English.. Of course for us it was a bit hard to adept, since these subjects were thought in BM for quite sometime.. However most of us quickly adapted and it didn't created a barrier that would prevent us from the full understanding of these subjects.. In fact, statistics has shown that there's no drop of students passing Maths and Science when it was thought it English, whether it's primary or secondary school. So why make an issue over something that's turning out well? The Chinese wants the medium be Mandarin again, the Malays obviously the Malay language.. Let me point out that no matter what medium the subjects are thought it, the learning process will still be the same.. Just because it's English and some people cannot grasp the language doesn't mean it's a bad thing for everyone..
For God sake, if we ever reverse the teaching of Maths and Science to Malay, we might as well ask UN to remove Malaysia from the face of the Earth.. I'm not saying learning Malay is a bad thing, it can come in handy sometimes.. However, how far are we going to get into the future? Where will the recognition be for our University graduates in the future? All the creditability that we have earned when we make the big change back in 2003 will just disappear and we'll be back to the stone age.. Our 2020 Vision will sound like 2120 Vision.. These people want to convert back to their own mother tongue for their own convenience.. They haven't thought about the consequences of the action, what impact it'll bring to the country, the future generation, the education system.. Millions will have to be spent to revamp the KBSM again, and with the economy so bad, we'll just be cursing Malaysia to a deeper grave.. And when our students leave F5 and try to go overseas, or even private unis back here, they did be a lost, and that time they'll suffer even more..

To go back to La Salle Centre, Ipoh was like walking down memory lane again.. I look back at my own convention, 17th NLLC 2007, noticed how much has the Centre has changed such as new wiring and attached bathrooms at some rooms.. And how fast time flies.. I missed all those good time I had with my new found friends, the stuff we did.. Thou it lasted for only a short period of time, yet the memories will be a lifetime..
Anyway, it was my 2nd FT meeting since the 1st one back in 2008.. Jerald Joseph was the speaker for this FT meeting and the main theme was on human rights.. And to put it simply, he is an awesome speaker.. He got us thinking, does everyone know his basic rights? Many people out there are exploited just because they are ignorant to this.. Don't have to look far, just look at the foreign workers in the factories.. I've actually worked with some of these people when I was working in Jusco.. These people are simple people, earning an honest leaving, yet they are pushed to the limits of man to do things like stacking up stock, carrying heavy items and etc.. Sometimes for no apparent reason they get scolded by their bosses, as the boss tries to find a way to release their anger..
Looking back, it's true that we need to be aware of these rights.. And we need to help others to realise it too.. We can't just stand on the pavement, just being onlookers as somebody is beaten for no apparent reason.. I'm not saying that each of us should be Superman, but we should challenge the boundaries, take the lead and make a difference.. Jerald has open our eyes to the cruel world out there, now it's left for us to answer the calling..
In short, it was nice to go back for FTs again.. Each time it's a new experience, new adventure and making new friends.. And with the regional OTs coming up, it's our responsibility to pass down these knowledge to younger La Sallians.. Keep the spirit burning brightly in our heart and soul.. VIVA LASALLIANA!!!

PETALING JAYA: The Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) results will be released next Tuesday.
Malaysian Examinations Council public relations officer Khawari Idris said students could obtain the results from their schools from 12 noon onwards.
“Private candidates will receive their results through the post,” he said in a statement.
Students can also check their results via SMS by sending “STPM (Their MyKad number)” to 39003 or surfing www.mpm.edu.my from the same time onwards on March 10.
An analysis of the results will be available on the same day, he added.
A total of 53,638 students sat for the examination last year.
However, I think towards the tail end of the movie, it just stopped abruptly.. I was like WTH!!! It just ended, at the part when Benjamin was sitting on the roof, saying "What if I could fly?".. Damn.. I don't even know what happened to him, did he died? Did he get reborn? I consulted the person-in-charge and all he can tell me is technical problem.. HELLO!!! I paid for the movie and you giving me half cook stuff.. WTF!! Plus during the movie, the sound was like fading, something like you get when you watch pirated DVDs.. I was like er.... SWEAT!!
Damn la MBO, hopefully you guys buck up.. Anyway, the movie was nice.. A bit boring cause of the slow pace but the way it's potrayed was quite good.. No wonder it won 2 Oscars.. Go watch it if you don't know how to spend 3 hours of your day..

Add of your own question(s)
The country where education is very highly politicised.Also a country where Malays are literaly spoonfed from their moment of their birth up to their deaths.Even if you are the no.1 student in Malaysia,you won't get a place in a public university of your choice if you are not a Malay.A Malay can beat you to the seat even if he's a freakin' retard.That is guaranteed.

 Favourite sport? Soccer
A game in which you actually have to be able to run for at least 90 minutes straight (unlike 'American Football' where they stop 'playing' every 2 minutes). It involves speed, strength, skill as well as a shit load of practice and dedication. If you've never played it and you're bashing it anyway, get the fuck off your ass and try to do anything close to what the professionals can do. It's harder than it looks, jackass.
"Lazy fuck: Hey look at me, I'm a lazy fuck that has nothing better to do than sit on my ass and make fun of things I know nothing about!
Soccer player: *Punches lazy fuck in the face*" (i took the 2nd defination, much better..)
