Random updates..

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.


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.
By The Tunku's Great Granddaughter

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.

Guess I can say I'm looking forward to MBBS 2nd year.. New things to learn, new experiences, new friends to make (on this part, I mean juniors to bully!! XD) And also, to spend more time with HER!! =D Seriously, I feel that we're going stronger.. Guess that 'cool down' period wat good for the both of us.. Let's hope it last for a lifetime k.. =)

So here's to me, a 2nd year medical student.. Haha.. And I still haven't pack.. LOL!! But as I begin my new journey (well, a continuation actually); my blog will be inactive again.. Unless I find time.. Seriously, this is like the most active month for my blog.. LOL!!

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..*

A second chance..

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.. =)

God works wonders!

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!

The end of all things good..

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

Police forum..

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.. =)
