Finally the last day of 2010 has arrived.. And it's with great sorrow and joy that I bid farewell to 2010.. Sorrow cause well, there are somethings which I wish I could do but couldn't.. Joy? Oh simple, always look forward towards the future.. XD
So many things happened in 2010.. So many happy and sad memories.. So many trials, struggles, victories and accomplishments.. So much things to pen down but I think my memory is failing me.. Gosh, I sound like im 200 than 20.. Hehe.. Last time round I did a month to month summary.. This time I guess I'm just going to highlight a few points that has really brought the real meaning of the year to me.. =)
FIRST - GOD
Coming to AIMST was probably the best God-guided decision I have ever made in my entire life.. I met new people, people who were so devoted to God, people who really touched my life and really brought me back to Him.. I wasn't a devoted Christian.. I belief in God and all He has done but as to serving Him, helping Him to expand His kingdom I was close to zero.. In AIMST, I met people who really inspired me.. People like Thomson, Victor, Anna, Gloria and so many more, people who I look up to and I'm "WOW, those are great people!" And it's those people that brought me closer to God, that help me grow deeper for Him, to work for Him, to accomplish for Him.. And for that, I am really thankful that this year, it has been one great experience.. =)
SECOND - FAMILY
My family has gone through a lot over the years.. Many secrets that I shall not reveal here, they will probably go down with me.. =) And again I thank God for looking after my family, pulling us through 1 more year.. And to my family, my Dad, Mum and Nelson.. A big thank you to you all.. I can never repay all of your kindness, your sacrifices for me.. Especially my parents, to sponsor me to uni is a big task.. That is one thing I can never never top up..
THIRD - HER =)
At the end of February I got into a relationship with this wonderful, cute, amazing girl in my batch.. She's everything that I've ever wanted.. It was like she was tailored for me.. Hehe.. And I nearly lost her once, because of my attitude, because of my behavior.. And I promise never to repeat that same mistake that has nearly cost my relationship.. 10months have now gone between us and things with us are so much better.. Thank you darling for always being there for me, helping me through all the troubles I'm in and for loving me for who I am (minus the flaws.. XD) I really hope that this love can go on forever for I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!!! BLEK!!
FOURTH - FRIENDS
I made a lot of new friends in campus, strengthen old ones and cherished the lost ones.. My friends are my one source of joy, happiness and comfort.. And the many memories with this bunch of people are the ones that keep my belief in them.. I'm grateful for all of them, for those who helped me, for those who advised and guided me.. Thank you all.. =)
FIFTH - PASSING MY FINALS AND OTHER EXAMS =)
This goes without saying that it's one of the highlights of the year.. Medicine is a tough course and if you don't strive, you will not succeed.. Thus I thank God, my family, my darling and my friends for guiding and helping me through the toughest times of my life.. And passing it is one thing, getting some good results is another.. Everything that has happen is a blessing.. And with this I shall move forward and achieve my dream to be a doctor.. XD
SIXTH - FUN
Thank you 2010 for all the memorable memories I have, all the fun I had with family and friends.. CF Retreat, my huge birthday celebration, Genting and Penang trips, dates with my darling, outings and randomness with those people.. Haha.. All those are cherish-able memories locked in my brain forever.. =D
SEVENTH - FOR EVERYTHING ELSE
Like I said, my memory is failing me.. There are probably 365 different things to write down and I can remember like 20-30 of them.. Haha.. So for all those things that are missing from here, I just wannna say THANK YOU!!! Whatever you are.. (lameness to the max wei.. another thing I picked up this year.. LOL)
So that's probably the summary for one entire year.. Ain't going to start writing an essay here.. Haha.. So this is Jason, signing off from a great year and eagerly awaiting the coming one.. In about 22 hours that is.. Hehe.. ^^
Tuesday, December 28, 2010
Well, I was looking at some random stuff in facebook today.. U know, the usual, photos, comments and some playing the same old FB games.. Hehe.. And i've been stumbling upon something that many people would think of it as nothing.. But to me, I feel something was not right somewhere..
OK, let me start with the word Christmas.. OK, this word itself brings many interpretation to different people.. Some people will take it as another holiday, others a day for parties and relaxing and to some as the joyous celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour.. =)
And thus the topic on Christmas begins.. XD And yeah, I know Christmas has been over for a days, so why I'm posting this up now? I don't know.. Random? A sudden urge? A tuck in my tummy? Can't answer..
Now Christmas as Christians know it is the birth of Jesus Christ.. Of course this is not His real DOB, or so I am told.. According to my pastor, he said the Eastern Orthodox church states the real DOB of Jesus Christ is somewhere around 6-7th Jan, but again I'm not sure.. So we all know how he was born and how the stories go.. In a manger in Bethlehem.. My friend posted up a very good story, here's the link.. Go read it if u all have the time.. =) http://mysayfortoday.blogspot.com/2010/12/no83-merry-christmas.html
As I was saying, it is a joyous celebration.. Now, in the internet I bumped into pictures of people getting drunk, or posting up saying they are drunk, etc.. Now I was wondering to myself, it's Christmas.. OK, it's normal for us to have a relaxing time, taking it easy, attend parties.. I mean I do that myself, but after what I've been through I felt something was not right somewhere.. I mean at least I don't drunk myself crazy.. However, some people felt it was alright to do so.. Drowning themselves in the joy that this world has to offer, the bad side that is..
Now here I am thinking, is it right? Is this how we celebrate the joyous day in Christian's life? Mind u, these are the same people who go to church every week and worship the Lord (or so I think , I really hope they do).. I can't help but noticing that all this is wrong.. My pastor told me once that most of us are hypocrites, if not all of us.. True enough.. One day we go to church, sing praises to Lord, listen to the sermon, say Amen and be gone with our ways.. The other 6 days? We do things that is wrong, etc.. And I have even one person telling me, "Look, you can't even come to the party? To give face to people? What's so great about the church anyway?" Well, FYI I attended my church's dinner instead of a Christmas party.. I wasn't going to argue, no, I didn't even wanted.. These people have openly challenge God, so they'll face judgement from the Almighty..
In short, I'm not against all those parties or what.. But I was telling myself, even if we wanna to indulge ourselves in this 'joy', may we do it in modesty.. Don't go drunk on the eve and then can't wake up for Christmas service the next day.. To me, I live by this principle, if we can have all the time in the world to eat, sleep, game, party, why can't we have sometime with God? May we be reminded of the true reason for Christmas, not take it as another festival where we can lose ourselves.. God bless us all.. =)

And how have your Christmas been people? =)
Once again, another year bids us goodbye, while another is going to say hello.. 2010 is leaving, 2011 is coming.. And well, I guess the next post after this will be about my summary of the year 2010.. Hehe
The 1st week of my holidays is pretty quiet.. OK, not that quiet since my relatives came down for a week but pretty boring as in I was on the lappie most of the time? LOL!! I really need to find a better way to spend my life instead of sitting in front of my laptop 24/7.. Haha.. Hopefully this week will be better since i'm having tons of yam cha sessions.. LOL!!
Apart from that, I haven't started my Special Study Module (SSM).. What in the world is this u might ask?? Say it's another fancy word for assignment.. Haha.. Basically we do a report, dunno how long about things that we probably won't learn in medical school.. It doesn't have to be medically related, it's just a study/survey/experiment on stuff that you like.. LOL!! And what am I interested in? Male menopause.. Wakaka.. Something rather interesting, since it might affect me in the future!! Haha!! Probably will post it up once I'm done.. XD
So very little update from me.. Actually a lot but I'm lazy to type it out.. Plus most of them are personal, if it's not me, it's my friends, family, etc.. So until the next post.. =)

It's holidays people!!! TEEHEE!!!!
Well, I got back from AIMST yesterday and Seremban hasn't change one bit.. OK, the new Tesco Extra is running, the building near T2 has gotten taller and er.. Nothing else? Oh yeah, that old abandoned building in Kemayan Square has been cleaned, guess NS is dead serious about getting that city status.. Haha.. Until those 2 buildings go together with the Aedes pond, it'll be a long way.. XD
I was looking back at the year, 2 more weeks before the year ends, before 2010 bids goodbye and 2011 makes its appearance.. In 4 months since my 2nd year began I've completed 3 systems namely Cardiovascular, Respiratory and Gastrointestinal.. 3 systems in 4 months!! 3 freaking exams together with an extra uni paper in 4 months!! WTH!!! It's like time passes by super fast.. Now I'm halfway done with 2nd year, the next system going to be Central Nervous System.. Gosh, 18 lectures in the first week itself; I'm going to go bonkers..
That aside, things for me has been pretty good lately.. My relationship is improving.. Had a nice date with her before I went back, it was birthday.. So HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY DARLING!!! BLEK!! Things around campus has improved too.. Slowly I can see changes coming about in campus, hopefully this won't stop.. Serving God is always a joy.. The Christmas night was held in my campus, a first wei.. Hopefully that is a sign of salvation into my campus.. XD And the CF Retreat is coming up in Jan, followed by a few events like Hosteller's Night and Mega Cultural Night.. Going to be busy busy busy.. In the CNS system.. Wat the... -.-"
Back home, my relatives came down for a week.. My bro is missing thou, off to camp.. His results are coming out, I'm more nervous than he is.. Haha.. AND, I GOT A NEW HANDPHONE!!! Well, not that new actually, it's a second hand from my cousin, but who cares.. A major upgrade compared to my old one..
INTRODUCING THE SONY ERICSSON W890i
Yup, that's my new toy for now.. 3.2megapixel camera, 9hours talk time, 3G, up to 4GB memory; it pretty much have everything that I wanted.. Best thing is it's free!! XD So yeah, I'm like a young boy given some new toy.. Yeah yeah, bunch of u are thinking i'm a hypocrite right now as I always condemn SE, but hey, when it's free u gotta take it.. Still not changing my stance thou, NOKIA FOR LIFE!! XD
That's enough wordy updates for now.. Time to hit some Dota, FIFA 11 and catch up on some series I've been missing.. So as they say, EXIT, STAGE RIGHT!! Chao ppl!! And HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! XD
Friday, November 19, 2010
Wow, I can't believe it's been more than a month since my last post.. I guess this blog is really dying.. Actually, I have so many things to type out, but I'm just so oh lazy.. What to do, getting internet here is also a drag, dah lah my room 1.5 years no internet, the admin pulak buat tak tau until I really made noise last week.. Hopefully things will be resolved by this month.. XD
On studies, nothing much.. Finish Respiratory System exam, now starting Gastrointestinal System.. One after another, only been 3 months and I have done 2 exams and my 3rd is coming in a month time.. Sometimes I wonder why did I enter into this course? Then I say to myself, "Shut up Jason, this is what you wanted your whole life, you practically cried over it" *yeah, I did* So here I am, learning medical stuff, which is pretty awesome at times.. As in it really intrigues you how the body functions and how great is our God, for He created us to the finest of details, the greatest creator..
I'm more active in CF now.. More events are coming up and I'm 'in-charge' for 2 of em.. The Christmas Night and the CF Retreat Camp.. Somehow coming to AIMST has really improve my spiritual maturity.. Of course I'm still way off but compare when I was back in secondary school, I would say I'm more active now than ever.. And it was all down to that one faithful rainy day, when my friend Mei-Dree 'drag' me to the church, SPCC, even thou it was raining cats and dogs.. If she hasn't done that, I would probably back slided in AIMST like so many others.. So thanks Mei!!
So many other things pen up.. My relationship has its ups and downs.. I know I'm not the type of boy that you want and I probably can never be that kind of person.. I always have flaws and I always screw things up.. I just wanna thank you for being patient with me, putting up with my nonsense.. I just want you to know that I love you very much and I really hope things will just get better for us in the future.. Especially after a few events.. =)
So I guess that's all for now, 3am ady.. Time to hit the sacks.. Good night world!! God bless!! =)

Something interesting I found on my friend's blog that I've decided to share with you all.. I think it kinds of most relationship issues that's going on today.. =p Long story short, basically a guy's and gal's point of view of an incident..
Her Side of the Story
He was in an odd mood when I got to the bar, I thought it might have been my fault because I was a bit late but he didn’t say anything much about it.
I don’t remember doing anything to make him upset, but I could tell there was something wrong. The conversation was quite slow going so I thought we should go off somewhere more intimate so we could talk more privately.
We went to this restaurant and he was STILL acting a bit funny. I was getting really worried, what did I do? What was bothering him? Was he mad at me?
I tried to cheer him up, but started to wonder what was bothering him. Was it me or something else? I asked him if he was upset with me, and he said “No”.
But I wasn’t really sure.
So anyway, in the cab on the way back to his house, I said that I love him, and he just put his arm around me! I didn’t know what the hell that meant because, you know, he doesn’t say it back or anything.
We finally got back to his place and I was wondering if he was going to break up with me! Why didn’t he want to talk about this? So I tried to ask him about it, but he just switched on the TV. Why would he rather watch TV than talk to me?
Reluctantly, I said I was going to go to sleep, hoping he would get the hint that I was upset and wanted to talk. I was so hurt that he was out there watching TV while I was in here going through emotional turmoil.
Then after about 10 minutes, he joined me and we had sex.
I thought that maybe he would open up after we shared an intimate experience like that, but he still seemed really distracted. So afterward, I just wanted to leave because I was so upset, but I just cried myself to sleep.
He didn’t even notice how upset I was! I don’t know, I just don’t know what he thinks anymore. I don’t know what to feel anymore. I’m on emotional overload. I’m so confused. I don’t think he loves me anymore.
Why does he have to play mind games with me? I mean, do you think he’s met someone else???
His Side of the Story
MU lost. Felt kinda tired. Got laid though.
You make the conclusions.. XD
Well, I have lots to blog about but just no time to pen it down.. Well, today I've finally decided to do one of my blog entries that has been bugging me for quite some time.. It's something called politics..
Now before u all going to say "Oh gosh, here's M'sia politics again", let me clarify that this time it's about university politics.. Yes, the politics at my university.. I'm pretty sure most of the unis in Malaysia have their student council elections rite? And of course everyone wants to win, nobody likes to lose.. Well, here at my uni, I finally saw for real how dirty politics can get..
There were 2 teams having a go at each other.. One was my friend's team, their members carefully selected.. The other a team which was hastily formed to counter my friend's team.. So it was a typical Malaysian style politic for you, banners of "VOTE FOR ME" around the cafe (and other places), manifestos and of course the dirtier side of politics.. What I meant by dirtier side is not that both the team were killing each other or what.. To me, both of the groups were having rather clean politics.. It was more of the supporters who were having a go at each other..
The day of the election came and the opposite team won, with the president winning a landslide victory.. Post-election shows 2-3 reasons why my friend's team lost..
1) There were just too many people who didn't wanted my friend.. U know what happens when u dun want BN and just vote the opposition? Same case here, but at least from what I know the winning team are really down to business.. At least that's a positive sign. =)
2) Majority of the people who know/supported my friend never really went to vote.. Gave excuses like lazy, line to long, go class whole day.. Bunch of lame excuses if you ask me.. The voter turn out was below 40%.. And to me, if you want to vote, you'll vote no matter how cramp your schedule is.. Sadly, my generation don't really see the importance of it.. Don't have to go far, a simple evaluation of lecturers is sometimes very difficult to conduct due to that attitude..
3) The election, in my opinion, was conducted rather poorly.. There was not much information about the location and time of the election.. I only knew about it in the afternoon prior to the day of the election.. So much emphasis was placed on the candidates that the EC simply forgot about mentioning the date and venue like a few days earlier.. Furthermore, many students who were eligible to vote were either away or having hospital classes or in Alor Setar.. So there's your majority of your voters..
Now, this is the 3rd Student Council Election in my university and I'm rather surprised by the whole process.. Even until now, some people are still talking about it even thou it's been like 2 weeks since the election..
However, there's one thing that I saw that totally confirm my opinion that politics in the uni is just same as in the country.. A very degrading video was posted about my friend in Facebook.. So degrading that a police investigation was required.. Now, it's only a uni level election but do you see the connection? We've been train from young to back stab each other, to 'kill' off each other and thus this is what you get at the national elections.. A very sad scenario indeed.. Remember the phrase "Don't point a finger at anyone, cause 3 fingers will be pointed back at you"? To whoever who did that, you know who you are.. God know who you are.. And believe me, God don't take this things lightly.. Something will happen, maybe not now but something will.. I won't be surprise if one day somebody is hand-cuffed by the police in my uni..
So that's the end of one of my many ramblings I have installed for you people.. Many more but I have to pick them carefully, as some matters are still ongoing while some has been resolved and it's best that we forget about them.. CHEERS!! =D
Sunday, September 26, 2010
So many things to update, but with my busy 2nd year life, I guess I can only do it after my Cardiovascular System CA.. That's coming this Thursday.. Only 3 days left and I still haven't really study.. Oh gosh.. So.....

This was inevitable, my blog goes on hiatus when I am back in University.. Haha.. Kinda like a first year dilemma all over again.. LOL!!
So what's new that has been going on? Nothing much, except for the Merdeka celebration that occurred during the eve of Merdeka.. It was happening in AIMST, with the Ramadhan Bazaar, performances, parade and even a car parade!! And the whole night was just totally awesome.. Glad to see that AIMST is moving forward in trying to make the university more student orientated.. =) Hopefully more activities will happen soon..
On a personal note, I managed to study a few lectures over the weekend, so thats's a good sign.. And Raya is coming, the holiday that is.. Haha.. Potong stim rite? 2 weeks class then 1 week break.. Haha.. Overall, I'm loving every bit of year 2, I mean the new things we are studying and the practicals.. Haha.. Other than the part that we don't have time to study (or for me at least), everything is just great.. =D
So what's next?? Well, that's left to be seen.. As the saying goes."Cherish the past, enjoy the present, embrace the future" or something like that la.. Haha.. So till my next blog post, this blog is now on

This is a very good article from a younger generation and a great granddaughter of Tunku Abdul Rahman. A very well expressed opinion of how all Malaysians should be treated.
IF THIS IS THE VOICE OF YOUR YOUNGER GENERATION IN MALAYSIA , YOU WILL BE BLESSED.
Sharyn completed her Diploma in Advertising from Taylor's College, and then left motherland to pursue her BA degree majoring in Media Studies and Anthropology at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. While waiting for her graduation in May 08, she interned briefly at M&C Saatchi Wellington, a global advertising firm. Upon returning to Malaysia, jobless and relieved of rent payments, Sharyn stumbled upon Wild Asia through The Star which sparked her interest to learn more about nature and environmental causes. Armed with a communications background, Sharyn works on the Wild Asia website and editorial, translating geek terms into laymen language, easily accessed and understood by visitors regardless of their backgrounds, be it scientific, business, the arts or just plain interested.

This is a great piece. She has all the qualities of her great grandfather. Tunku has reason to be proud of her!

Both my parents are Malay. My mum's heritage includes Chinese, Thai and Arab, while my dad is Minangkabau. Due to my skin colour, I am often mistaken for a Chinese.
I'm happy that I don't have the typical Malay look but I do get annoyed when people call me Ah Moi or ask me straight up "Are you Chinese or Malay"
Like, why does it matter? Before I used to answer "Malay" but now I'm trying to consciously answer Malaysian instead.
There's this incident from primary school that I remember till today. Someone told me that I will be called last during Judgement Day because I don't have a Muslim name. Of course, I was scared then but now that I'm older, I realise that a name is just a name. It doesn't define you as a good or bad person and there is definitely no such thing as a Muslim name. You can be named Rashid or Ali and still be a Christian.
I've heard of the 1Malaysia concept, but I think we don't need to be told to be united. We've come such a long way that it should already be embedded in our hearts and minds that we are united. Unfortunately, you can still see racial discrimination and polarisation. There is still this ethno-centric view that the Malays are the dominant group and their rights must be protected, and non Malays are forever the outsiders.
For the concept to succeed, I think the government should stop with the race politics. It's tiring, really. We grew up with application forms asking us to tick our race. We should stop painting a negative image of the other races, stop thinking about 'us' and 'them' and focus on 'we', 'our' and 'Malaysians'.
No one should be made uncomfortable in their own home. A dear Chinese friend of mine said to me once, "I don't feel patriotic because I am not made to feel like Malaysia is my home, and I don't feel an affinity to China because I have never lived there.
I know some baby Nyonya friends who can trace their lineage back hundreds of years. I'm a fourth generation Malaysian. If I am Bumiputra, why can't they be, too? Clearly I have issues with the term.
I think the main reason why we still can't achieve total unity is because of this 'Malay rights' concept. I'd rather 'Malay rights' be replaced by human rights. So unless we get rid of this Bumiputra status, or reform our views and policies on rights, we will never achieve unity.
For my merdeka wish, I'd like for Malaysians to have more voice, to be respected and heard. I wish that the government would uphold the true essence of parliamentary democracy. I wish for the people to no longer fear and discriminate against each other, to see that we are one and the same.
I wish that Malaysia would truly live up to the tourism spin of Malaysia truly Asia. Malaysians to lead - whatever their ethnic background. Only ONE NATIONALITY MALAYSIAN. No Malays, No Chinese, No Indians - ONLY MALAYSIANS. Choose whatever religion one is comfortable with.

Came back from Ipoh on Saturday.. It was a very nice trip indeed.. The purpose that I went up there was to attend the Hillsong's concert at Syuen Hotel, Ipoh.. Haha.. Mission accomplished! Or partly only as I was at the concert for only 2 hours.. Can't complaint much since I was not the driver.. LOL!!
Also we (me, Wen Shan and Kenny) went up to Cameron Highlands.. It was just for the sake of going up I guess, haha.. Sadly, Cameron is no longer as cold as it used to be.. 25 degrees.. I'm like WTH!! It rained thou, so that at least make up for the not so cold weather earlier on.. Hehe..
Not to mention that I met a few new friends.. All thanks to Kenny and Wen Shan.. Met people like Hoho (i think that's his name, LOL!!) Vern, Kah Ling, David.. Very nice people, very random people also.. Haha.. Not to mention some of them are very well to do.. =S God really blesses those who follow Him truly.. =)
In the end, it was an awesome trip.. Haha.. Seriously, if those Ipoh people weren't there, we did be bored till death.. LOL!! Very short summary for a 4 day trip rite? Lazy to type la.. Haha..
*stares at the calendar, next Monday class begins.. sigh..*

I always wonder can u restart something that u just have restarted.. Of course I don't mean computer stuff.. I basically mean about life, studies, relationship, etc
I am a person who is firm by my decision.. I rarely waver.. That's how I got into med school to begin with.. However, I also belief that everyone should get a second chance, may it be your friends, relatives, the druggie outside your doorsteps.. And I guess when it comes to choosing the two, it becomes a really tough decision..
I was put into that situation recently.. I had to decide whether to stick to my choice or to give that person a second chance.. On one hand, I felt I shouldn't waver.. On the other, I felt vulnerable.. It got me thinking for weeks.. After all we've been through, can I really go through it again?? Is it possible??
I guess I will have to find out for I have chosen the latter.. And I'm sure more than ever that I have made the right choice.. Thank you for giving me a second chance, I'm sure things will work out.. And work out it will.. =)
Well, one thing leads to another and as I said, everything happens for a reason right?? Today a few things happened that really affirms my trust in God..
Lately, an untoward incident has occurred to my family.. What supposedly was sweet in the end became sour and bitter to swallow.. A deal that went bad, people who went back against their word and above all, to be blamed for everything.. And here is where I worship Him, Him above all who has guided my family over the years and will forevermore.. For only through His grace and glory and wisdom that we're fighting back the evil; fighting against all odds in order to protect ourselves..
Ever occurred to u when u wanted to do something but u have some doubts, something pops along just to let u know, "Hey, let's just continue with it k?".. The same thing happened.. And I am positive, it was the voice of God that has helped us to go through all the circumstances that has befall upon us.. So I pray that everything will be alright and this event can be put to rest once and for all..
Also, another interesting story I would like to share is that my mum was suppose to attend a church meeting in the morning.. Thing is she thought it was night.. Even the whole family thought it was night.. Somehow or rather, my dad decided to call up the Pastor who was away for no reason really.. And he just asked, "So the meeting is tonight?" and the Pastor replied, "It's in the morning!" So there u have it, have not my dad called the Pastor, my mum would have thought the meeting is at night and she would have missed it.. Another working from God?? God works in mysterious ways, we will never understand it but whether we believe it or not, it's a different issue.. And I am for one to vouch that I truly belief in Him, in whatever the situation..
Praise the Lord for guiding me, my family, my friends and all the people on this planet.. Praise Him forever.. Amen!

Well, this week has been one hectic but fun and crazy week for me.. Yup, after all the planning, toiling, obstacles and challenges; my AIMST friends managed to come down to Seremban.. Haha.. 5 days they were here, 5 days that went by so totally fast.. Time flies when your having fun; thus I conclude time slows down when u r not having fun.. XD
The 6 who made it were Adrian, Thurini, Hooi Yim, Shamineey, Nicole and John.. Well, John came on Tuesday afternoon, the others Monday night.. Haha.. Had great fun with this random bunch of people.. Went jalan-jalan in Seremban on Tuesday together with Eric, A Famosa and Melaka on Wednesday where we were joined by Betty and Faisal and finally to Midvalley and KL where we met Jit Kin, Kang Wei, Chia Wen, Yi Cheng, Diing Sheng and Joey.. Also not forgetting my parents and my younger bro who were in the mix for most of the trip.. Friday was more of a relaxing day where we end up in Port Dickson before they all went back at night to Penang..
It was like soooo fun.. All the things that we did, playing Mafia, Donkey, pillow fights and the oh so randomness of tricking Adrian that we're going Genting.. Haha, sorry bro! =) And when they left, haiz.. The place suddenly felt soooo empty.. No more noises, no more shoes lying around, no more jumping on the bed to wake people up.. =( All good things have to come to an end; but u know when u get sooooo accustomed to the care-free life, u wished it did stay like that forever..
So to all my friends who came, thank you.. At least u all made my holiday and I'm sure I made yours.. Until the next random trip to somewhere else, I'll be sitting at home and growing moss.. Pictures better be up.. XD

Attended a forum between police and residents yesterday.. First time attending such a thing.. Thought would be boring at first but at least I managed to increase my general knowledge about common stuff.. Furthermore, the OCPD of Seremban is a real joker.. Can really crack jokes, not to mention he can speak at least 4-5 languages.. Cool!! XD
Well, here I am to share a few things that most of us (including myself) didn't know..
1) If a unfamiliar and suspicious person enter your area, like say Taman, and if u r an RT member; u have the right to ask him "What the hell are u doing here?" If he ignores u, u can call the cops immediately.. It seems this is the Rakyat's rights.. (didn't know got such right also.. LOL!!)
2) Police can enter your house without a warrant.. This country ain't like Hong Kong, US or UK where a warrant is needed.. All they need is somebody with the rank Inspector and that's that, they can enter your house..
3) Say a thief enter's into your house, he was threatening your life and u acted in self-defense, accidentally killing him.. Now I know there's a saying 1 hit is self-defense, 2 hit is murder.. Here, regardless u hit him 100 times, ur still innocent cause u felt threatened.. LOL!!
4) Be careful of nearby syndicates.. Since my readers are mostly from Seremban, here are some new updates.. There's a Chinese syndicate who dress like professionals, drive big cars and come to your house to ask u for directions or something.. Also, there's an Indian syndicate who go from house to house with children, offering peace prayers for your house.. Next is a Malay syndicate who ride on motorbikes, with backpacks and also ask you for directions.. Advice: DON'T LAYAN!!
5) Identifying fake policeman: This no need to be said much, I think we all know how don't we? Plus there was an article about it.. Just a thing or 2, if u want to be sure it's the real deal, u can ask him to show his ID to you.. After that u can take it and ask him some questions like what's his ID Number or what's his rank (got some special rank there) or even if he is married or not (now tat's cool).. If he fails any this, TADAA, he's a fake!!
6) Police do more rounds at your neighborhood than your parents do.. So don't complain "I never see policeman patrolling my area before".. They have a complicated system but every single detail of their patrol is log on.. So if u have any doubts, u can go to the HQ and ask them yourselves.. =p
7) SMS syndicates, phone syndicates.. U know the one that sends you "Taniah, sim card anda telah menang bla bla bla.." shit?? Just ignore it.. Also, there seems to be a new one; now they call you saying that they are from a bank and u got some problem, need to call a number to clarify.. The moment u call that number, u are instantly tranced and then you are blur.. When u come around, u find your savings disappear.. This was a testimony from a guy yesterday.. Sadly, nothing can't be done except to ignore it if u find it suspicious or u don't even have an account with that said bank..
8) On ah longs, some of u might wonder how come the all out war against them has really slowed down and the posters are back up again.. Apparently the police are not in charge to take down the posters, that's for the City Council to do it.. Police only assist them... However, they did say if u find anyone sticking those posters, not the motor vehicle number and give it to the police.. They'll handle it..
Lastly, our police force is very wide awake, they are not sleeping on their jobs.. In fact my respect for them has increased thanks to yesterday's forum.. They really know what's going on, they just need time and for the Rakyat to cooperate with them in these criminal matters..
Another thing I noted was that all the top brass are very well mannered and down to earth people.. They're not arrogant like some of the normal policeman are.. Guess that's why they are the top brass and those arrogant policeman are still normal policeman.. Haha!!
Hopefully those feel things I noted yesterday would help you all in any aspect of your life.. =)
P.S: There are a few more but they are personal things, like threatening, getting police reports, etc and hence they are not put up here.. =)
