星期日的早上

今天起得很早,载了妹妹去报名补习。
现在,补习可是供不应求,还需要提早报名。七点半,人潮已排到楼梯口。
也看到很多“美眉”在排队,哈哈。

之后,我们去了富山点心楼。。。。人多得的可怕。。。。。没位子。。。。。也对,放假。。。。。在外地工作的游子也回来了。他们真会挑,选富山。。。。。

没办法,去名阁(好像不是这个“名”,我看只有文侨比较熟悉。。。。), 人潮更吓人。比富山更满!

还好,在玉满楼找到了位子,那也是搭桌。。。。。
在门口看到一辆豪华 Benz 戴了花圈,奇怪。为何在点心楼前会有新辆车?
原来男家在去接新娘之前,在玉满楼先填饱肚子,或许以后我有幸要娶老婆时也可以这样做,哈哈。
多数,我们都会在新郎旁看到一位“大kam姐”。
今天在我旁边的新郎桌却有一位“大kam佬”,看他有模有样的交待新郎接新娘红包要怎样给。。。。。不错哦,以后我也可以考虑找个“大kam佬”,因为早几个星期前,小叔结婚的那位“大kam姐”非常 “不得水”!

早前说了我们是搭桌的,原来同桌的他们也是因为富山爆满而到了玉满楼。
是玉满楼不好吃吗?
我喜欢富山是因为里面的气氛,有那种传统的味道。看到一些老伯提着鸟笼,不错了。

富山以后会搬到名阁的对面,玉满楼的隔壁。姚德胜街以后早晨可就热闹了,大家会为了吃点心而强车位。。。。。。
我会在富山搬走之前,再去感受那不同的“气氛”,不然以后就没机会了。。。。。

今早,连在名阁旁的时装店也在早上八点开始营业。。。。。不放过任何赚钱的机会!

我现在。。。。。。。

我是个很爱说话的人。

如果课题适合我,我可以滔滔不绝。
我也很喜欢唱歌,但并不唱得很好。

昨天的我,我的声音现在比阿杜更沙哑。。。。。。。
现在的我,没有声音!!!!

我已变成“哑”仔了。。。。。。。。。。。。

Feedreader

Anyone of you ever heard of feedreader?
Do you use it? Or anyone around you using it?
Do you think its necessary for you?

Now I'm gonna share how feedreader works and how will it benefit you especially if you are following many blogs like I do.

Firstly, there are many feedreader software out there but which one suit you more?
Well there are RssReader, Feedreader3 and Mozilla Thunderbird.

In this post, I will demonstrate how feedreader works using Mozilla Thunderbird.

Firstly take as an example, I believe you always the word "RSS feed" on many websites.Secondly on every blogspot, you will see Posts (Atom) at the bottom page. Have you ever wonder what does it for?
Let say if you want to follow a wordpress blog, how? The address will be as follow.

Thirdly if you like me where MalaysiaKini is one of your source of latest news happening in Malaysia? Wouldn't it be troublesome if you have to refresh the webpage every second for latest news? How about if they will automatically update you when latest news posted?
Be the first to know the latest price of petrol in Malaysia?


Now I'm gonna show how thunderbird works as a feedreader. Basically you will have to collect all the respective websites RSS url, then add into thunderbird.
Following the images shown, you have already add one RSS feed into the thunderbird.
Repeat the steps till you finish adding all the RSS feeds.

This is very beneficial for those who following many blogs because you can always ask the software to automatically check all the feed for latest updates within the time frame set. As an example, once in 5 minutes?

I'm following at a minimum of 34 blogs/news now and the numbers may increase throughout the years. And if you have many blogs to follow up, feedreader maybe the "thing" you looking for.

国油大学下乡团

看到许多战友下乡的照片,突然想念下乡前所做的一切,下乡时和下乡后的事情。







大家要加油!

新年要到了,是时候要回去利民加地探望一些老朋友,和我那顽皮的义弟!
他肯定依然那么顽皮!

马华怡保东区区会59周年党庆晚会

今天我出席了马华怡保东区区会59周年党庆晚会。
出席最大的原因是因为马华总会长 - 拿督斯利翁斯杰部长是开幕的嘉宾,其次是有一个座位空着,所以不要浪费。反正钱也“捐”了。。。。。。

今天全部都是不熟悉的面孔,除了马汉顺医生。也对,他也是这区附近的活跃分子,到场支持也理所当然。

我到时,刚好在江副部长的后面,害我走得特别慢。因为是怕抢了他的风头,至少我比他年轻,比他少皱纹!(这句,你们不需回应)

总会长去姗姗来迟,搞到那司仪不知如何是好,只好让我们先享用晚餐。
晚餐也特别奇怪,没有鱼翅但有猪肚汤。我也是第一次在宴会喝到此汤。说真的,还是妈妈煮得比较好!

总会长终于到了,他那滔滔不绝的演讲词真的很好。一直说马华要改革,要为人民谋福利!
此话听了进去第一反应当然是说好,但是回想一下好像只有他是说如此。

我在金马仑少年集训营时,大会主席却一直原地踏步,或者在反旧账,或者说一些有的没得。是否他就像马汉顺医生在第三期少年集训营所说的那些枯枝,朽木?

如果是的话,我今天也看到一些枯枝,朽木!
今天的工委会主席也在原地踏步,说一些我们都知道的东西,还不如说一些我们想知道的吧!

马华改革,加油吧!

p/s : 声明我不是马华支持者。我只希望马来西亚会变成一个属于“马来西亚人”居住的天堂!

EBOX

Today, it was a great day.
Initially I expect only around 6 people to turn up.
That's what usually happen, because people tend to "release aeroplane" at last minute. Culture perhaps?

The attendance was impressive I would say, a total of 15 lengchais and lengluis turned up.
Everyone were happily singing, some of them even standing on the bench.


Then, there was a small birthday party for the Zi Ning and Jun Yip.
Now its the time to show the birthday boy/girl and the cake.
Fortunately, it didn't end as Small Pig was given a chance to "involve" too as her birthday also on December.
There are the only couples tonight..........and 13 others most probably are still single (and I'm one of them........)
There were 3 videos taken and I will need sometime to process them before upload to YouTube.
I must say Mandy, Fong Yee and MonQ really sing very well. Don't believe it? Wait for the video.

One thing I will have to avoid in the future. Today I was duet with Fong Yee with the song of 广岛之恋 and when I reviewed the video while at home, I look like a giant beside her.
Its either I have to find a way to "look" smaller asap or I will have to avoid standing beside a small size girl. 谁能救救我?

你是不是马来西亚人?

上个星期,我在金马仑高原渡过了一个星期。
我去了少年领袖集训营。

看到很多,学了很多,领悟了一些我之前找不到问题的答案。
认识很多新朋友,也与一些老朋友相逢。

在酒店等洗手间时,晨晖问我是否是辩论参赛者,我感觉很奇怪。。。。
最后一天临别,有一位营员问我“你是不是马来西亚人” ?

我的华语,真的很怪吗?


有时我不明白为何很多人在每一句最后都加上 “咯” 或者是 “啦”。难道这就是马来西亚华语文化的独有风格?
因为华语书本是没传授这个文化,但很多人却拥有了“它”和将“它”融入英语里,而演变成了 Manglish 。。。。。。

Books

I bought two books today.

Surprisingly, I'm not those people who usually spent money on books.
I can't remember what other books I bought beside textbook.

The books are

The Malay Dilemma, written by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
May 13, written by Dr. Kua Kia Soong.

I'm gonna start some reading on these two books, else money spent will be wasted.

虚伪的人,你们好好笑!

Finally July 2008 semester has come to the end.
Did a lot, saw a lot, and learned a lot.

Saw the hypocrite side of many people, especially those "non sporting" people making fuss on a small matter by involving many parties. I wonder beside the knowledge they gained from the textbook, they don't progress in term of mindset maturity?
I can just look at them, laugh at them as they "combine" to bully a guy. Such a foolish action if u ask me.
Well it just show how human can be, and they are just one of the type that we see often in life.

I foresee a quality semester break ahead.
Doing all the activities I wanted to do all these while, and meeting the people that may give me a clue of what to do next.

虚伪的人,你们好好笑!还没长大吗?都这把年纪了。
但有你们的出现,世界才这么“精彩”!

Mid of November 2008

I have spent few days at home relaxing and studying........its really a great recharge I must say.
I watched a lot of tv these few days.
I watched Andy Murray tapao Roger Federer. Hopefully Djokovic can win the title this year....as Nadal is out for the time being.

MCA new line up is something interesting to me too, I wonder how the drama can sum up to in the upcoming few months? Gonna be something interesting. A more competent party is certainly good for the country. They fight fight fight, hopefully we as the citizenship get the benefit.

Manchester United tapao Stoke City 5 -0.
What a great debut by Danny Welbeck, and again Cristiano Ronaldo is superb as usual.

Arsenal slipped at Emirates again, I wonder how the mood of Lam Lam and Yudan now?
Surely a lot different compared a week from now.

学业固然重要,但它是人生的全部吗?

The UTP students' ultimate goal nowadays is to achieve 4 flat every semesters and they will avoid any activities that do not "menguntungkan".

Which mean if it an event where there is no certificate after the completion, most likely no one will join?
Where the activity that will earn them a few pieces of papers will be the only events you see the participation of them, beside that they will stay in the room study?

Are those papers actually can get them a job?
4 flat can get USD5k fresh grad job?

I wonder what happen to them, isn't the world is so broad that we should continue and go discover n learn from it?

Its always good to equip yourself n ready to compete in the market but are they really on the correct path?
Or I just outdated? Haha................

Study is important but is study the everything of our life?

Raya break soon......

Raya break soon at last, its good that I will have around 12 days to spare at home.
What should I do by then? Follow up my ANSYS modelling? Or throw everything aside, just stay at home n relax?

I'm glad I made it thus far, I started to see some progress in my FYP.
Facilities Engineering project is going well so far.
SM and Malaysian Studies project so far, no progress at all. LoL.
After test 1, I started to get lazy when in lecture of Facilities Engineering/Drilling. Time to catchup.......

The weather is very hot lately, before this was raining everyday.
I want CENDOL!

The hottest issue lately will surely on the possibility of a new government in Malaysia?
If it really happen, can Anwar go far? Are those PR people actually have the capability to become Minister?
We just have to wait and see.
Hope for a better Malaysia for Malaysians!

Final year first semester

Yes, I'm back to UTP after 32 weeks of industrial internship.
Thus far, 6 weeks past and many things happened.

During the first week of the semester, I successfully found a lecturer to be my FYP supervisor. To me, he is good and I'm grateful to have him to supervise me.
As Siang said, he is notable the best. I have to admit, Mr. Rahmat is a really good. He provided guidances which surely helps to progress further in the project.
Btw, my fyp title is "Riser Stress Analysis with Finite Element Approach".
I want to achieve great result output at the end of this and next semester for this fyp!

Surprisingly, July 2008 is a special semester.
This intake has more than 100 chinese students, which never happen before.
I wonder what made UTP change their policy?

For the time being, I'm not sure to fully concentrate on study or fyp.
As time goes on, I will need to produce output for my fyp. Especially to Mr. Rahmat as I believe he does have expectation on me. (I just assume)
Then, study been quite ok this semester (yes, it isn't busy at all compared to previous 5 semesters) but still tests are coming...... I want to score this semester......
What should I do? I'm not equip with quadcore CPU. I'm not good in multitasking......
I guess I just have to take it slowly, plan well......
ANSYS, I will fall in "love" you for sure!
Facilties Engineering/Malaysian Studies projects, I love you too!
PCS presentation soon. Mr. Sarjit, I will try my best to get full mark from you.

I have decided to ditch Windows XP for Vista now.
Hopefully Vista will give me some good experience I had on XP.

I did not spent a lot time in sport complex and gym for the past 6 weeks. Physically I'm not fit now..........I need exercise.......Time to sweat more!


Pipelines Last Day - Part 3

To be updated later.

Pipelines Last Day - Part 2

Again, this photo shows how much Cherry likes to take photos. More to come later. Isn't Nazrin look sexy in long hair?

He's Eddie. At first I thought "Eddie" is a Mat Salleh, never seen a Malay use this name though. He's Cofferdam expert, he's the organiser for Pipeline Futsal Day!
And isn't he look macho in these 2 photos?
As usual, Cherry is in the photo again. Hehe.
Ezhani and Taaliah. They love shopping, well basically all the ladies in the department love shopping!
Thanks Ezhani for teaching me on Riser Stress, thanks Taaliah for giving me chances to learn from Bokor.
Now who is the lady in these 4 photos?
She is the secretary of Pipeline Department.
I only met her on the 2nd day I joined RWP. The first day she was no where to be seen, end up I was sitting at Chong's place. Met her on the 2nd day, never know the secretary is so cheerful. She is just so nice to chat with. Her performance during the TeamBuilding drama session was stunning!
This is Mr. Azahari. He's the leader designer of the department. He has more than 20-year-old experience in Pipeline design industry which is MASSIVE!
Sorry to say, when he taking a nap in the office. I did heard some noise though.................
The design team, Kak Min and Salfaras. And again, you see Alvin in the photo......sama kaki dengan Cherry. Haha.
Kak Min was doing breakfast delivery service while I was still there, business was good.
Salfaras just a lovely lady, she speaks softly. Elegant betul !

Pipelines Last Day - Part 1

11th July 2008, the last day of my internship programme in Pipelines Department, Ranhill WorleyParsons. Thus photo session was held with all the members presented on the day!
The main actors of the photos below will be me and Mae!!!

Shaharin, expert in CP (Cathodic Protection) Design. Wonderful person to chat with, very humour person. Very good singer, Pipeline "Rain" we called him. I bet he can dance like Rain too!

Ezwan and Cherry
They were the 2 persons sat in front of me in the office. They love to talk (in another way, talkative!) and I always hear funny stories from them. Ezwan taught me a lot in VIV analysis, which did helped me a lot in preparing the internship report. Cherry gonna be a hot MAMA soon. She went for belly dance class, yoga, etc. And I'm sure that she gonna have few children in the next few years. And you know what..... she is the most prettiest chinese girl in the department!

Adli
My senior from UTP, now working in the Pipelines Department. We played futsal together, in the same team during teambuilding. It was a great experience! And he recommended me to take Mr. Rahmat as my fyp supervisor as he has experience supervising students in FYP related to FEA. Now I feel his word really true, Mr. Rahmat really a "special" lecturer. I can feel the aura from him.
Nazrin
I must say he's one of the most funniest guy in the department. His jokes really help while in tension mode. Beside known as a handsome guy, he more famously known as a "manis" guy. Just look at his photo, he just so sweet!
One of the joke that I remembered from him, "Report susah nak tulis ke? Tak apa......Jangan lah tulis......Guna type lagi best. Tulis slow sangat ni, type senang"

WorleyParsons - Pipeliners

She's Sujata. I get to know her before I join WorleyParsons. Why? Because she replied my email I believe, during the month of October? She been teaching me a lot, as a pipeliner and as a person. She was my mentor throughout the internship period, especially during the time I spent at level 28 project floor. Beside the LCD and windows I'm usually looking at, she was among the people I always talked with. Not to forget Ahmad Fairoz and Shafiza too.........and the lady below!

Ok, from this photo what actually come across your mind? She looks like a DATIN, doesn't she?
I get to know her when I was at level 28 project floor. She was really nice to talk with, the first few days I was there.......I was quiet.......as usual for newcomers........but the passion of them really made me feel like home........
Kak Rus, so how everything going on at KPOC? The office there really nice!

He looks fierce, right?
Actually he very "sweet"......just because he is "manis" looking guy......you will get to see his "manis" photos later on.
I get to know Nazrin well during teambuilding event, we worked in a team and I still remember "rasa rasa sayang sayang hei hei!!!"......that was really hilarious.......I will never forget that
Looking to meet him again soon, somewhere in Ipoh!

He's the "brother" of Sujata in the department. I get to go along with him mainly because he's always with Sujata.......and mainly because we are young people! Same age range, no generation gap.

Ezwan, he always smile. It just fun talking with him, he taught me a lot in VIV analysis. Now he is the VIV analysis expert, surely he will have great time in the office as Cherry is another talkative person!!

Now I wonder the table in front of him, who sitting there now.......

Aker Solutions

On 7th of July 2008, Pipeline department had a trip to Aker Solutions manufacturing plant at Port Klang Free Zone.


Here is one of the photos I snapped using my phone.

Due to "no camera allowable" policy inside the plant, I not able to take photos........but I quietly took one anyway......haha
Ok....you see the stomach of one macho pipeliner......
And the lenglui dressed in white was my plant supervisor, isn't she pretty? That's why kahwin awal!
Ok, this is me........
I'm trying the safety goggle that wore during the site visit.
