It makes me sad ;((
I don't mind celebrating Raya with friends, but I could not accept the fact that I would have to attend classes on the first day of Raya. I know many of you peeps out there would probably say "Ohh...its just a day.Skip class!!"
But I just couldn't!!
This course is eccentric.A VERY eccentric one.I don't mind skipping other courses, but not this one.Once you do, you'll be left wayyyyyy behind. I mean wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy behinddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd.
That's how behind you would be left out.hahahahaaaa.
Well, I'm doing school work as I'm typing this.Celebrating Raya eve with a class in the morning and school work in the evening!
Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir Batin.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has found the episode, rated PG when it aired on Foxtel last year, should have been rated M.
ACMA said the episode entitled Death is a Bitch breached the subscription television code of conduct because it featured sexual references and violence exceeding the mild level allowed in PG programs.
The authority investigated the episode after receiving a complaint from a viewer who took offence to a scene in which the character Death has sex with a dead girl in the back seat of a car.
"ACMA considers that while younger children may not understand the reference, older children under the age of 15 years may do so," it said.
"And while the sexual activity depicted is considered to be discreetly implied by the animated depiction, necrophilia, even by way of an animated reference, contains an inherent impact higher than mild."
ACMA dismissed Foxtel's argument that the PG rating was justified because the episode was so unreal it could not be taken seriously.
Foxtel will reclassify the episode as M for future screenings and will review the classification of all other episodes of Family Guy.

Everthing in this house is all about raya.Umm...Well,almost.
Baju raya.Well, not brand new.So, checked. ;)
Well, called Mom this morning.They were going for a raya trip (I mean outside KL).For the first time. And that first time will be without me!
The first time in celebrating raya when I would have to rush to class right after meals.

Its because I found out that she has been making free calls! And that was when I downloaded the program, yeah obviously to get free calls too. Who wouldn't right?I mean, its like international calls!! ;)))
And so I tried to call home but no answer.Haha.
I was too sleepy to wait for the local KL time that I went to bed.
I'm now quite in the raya mood now but still uncertain on how to celebrate it ;(
Friday, September 26, 2008
I am totally exhausted right now, having to start my day earrrlyy!!
Ohh..can't wait for Raya since we had got excuse to come in late.Like there's soo much different. We only got 2 hours excuse.Gahhhhh~!!!!
One GOOD quote:
An English professor wrote the words, "Woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed his students to punctuate it correctly.
The men wrote: "Woman, without her man, is nothing."
The women wrote: "Woman: Without her, man is nothing."
You reckon its true?

But luckily a little bit of says from the ex-teachers some sort of made my day.
Monday, September 22, 2008
I do not know why, but I think it was a bless from God that everthing went smoothly well.
Ok I don't mean to exaggerate, but if you were to be in my shoes, I reckon that you would second my above statements.
It started from evening in uni (yeah,I like the fact that uni is not as congested as always because uni break had just started).
And went on till buka puasa and till prayers, and till I'd reach home.
I could not explain in words.It all went purrrrrfectly well and after such a long time I had never felt sooo good.
Ohh..raya mood is slowly taking over. The fact that I would be enjoying raya in class.Hahaa...!!and of course skipping class on raya had triggered my mind. ;)
Approximately about a week till Hari Raya! Hari Raya wayyyyyy far from the family.An eccentric experience for me, but I'll have to adapt innit?
Sunday, September 21, 2008
Nevertheless, I still have assignments to be completed due after the break.
But I can't seem to find myself to get started on my current assignments and I'm sure it will pile up when the class during the break starts.

how come when you film someone, you need them to sign a consent form...or when you take a picture of someone, you need them to sign a consent form for it to be used...but the paparazzi can take pictures of the celebritys, and they don't need to sign a consent form for it.
why is it illegal to put a video of some random joe on tv, but its not illegal to put a video of a celebrity walking into a club?
Actually the reason is because when they are taking pictures they are doing it outside on public property.
You never see paparazzi inside clubs or restaraunts taking pictures and that is because the owner or manager will kick them out.
Odds are if they photo is inside a club or restaraunt it was probably taken by a bystander OR proffessional photographer hired by that celebrity or event promotor
You are allowed to take photos of anything as long as its a public place. If you happen to interview someone then you have to ask their permission to use the footage but if you were to take a video of someone walking across the street then there is nothing they can do because they were walking across a public street which is why its NOT illegal to put a video of some random joe on tv unless you invade his privacy by following him onto private property.
That is why paparazzi don't get in trouble for taking pictures of people outside.
Ever watch "Cops" if you were to compare an old episode with a newer one you would see that they used to follow people into houses and onto property.
What happened is they would get sued alot for violating a persons privacy, so they just told the camera crew to try and stay on public property.
thats why the show started to suck in recent years which lead to its cancellation.

The better prepared you are, the more enjoyable and safe your travelling will be.
- Try to acquaint yourself with the culture and customs of the countries you are visiting. Respecting local customs will help you avoid potentially dangerous situations.
- Call home regularly.
- Take a photocopy of your itinerary, passport, credit cards, traveinsurance documents and important phone numbers and keep them separate from the originals, in case of loss or theft.
- Register with the nearest Australian embassy, high commission or consulate. The registration information provided by you will also help us to find you in an emergency whether it is a natural disaster, civil disturbance or a family emergency. You can do this on-line through Australian embassies, high commissions or consulates overseas.
- Take a copy of the Department's brochure If you are the victim of sexual assault while travelling overseas.
You face greater risks when you're travelling alone. If you decide to do so, you should take extra precautions. In some societies, men may take advantage of you if you have no obvious protector. This could take the form of hissing, pinching, passing comments, obscene gestures and so on.
- Retain your composure and do not react, but remove yourself from the situation as quickly as possible, or go to the nearest police officer.
You could unwittingly find yourself in danger simply by accepting an invitation to go out with a man alone.
- In societies where this is not an accepted practice, just saying 'yes' to an invitation may give the wrong signal and expose you to the risk of sexual assault.
If you require regular or predictable medication while travelling, you should ask your doctor to arrange an appropriate supply. Care should be taken to observe the law in different countries with respect to possession of medications and it is advisable to take a letter from your doctor explaining your condition.
- In some countries, medications which may be readily available in Australia are illegal.
- If in doubt, check with the consulates or embassies of the countries you intend to visit to ensure that your medicines, and the quantities you will be carrying, are legal.
For your convenience and peace of mind, take enough feminine hygiene products and (if you use them) contraceptives to last you if you are headed somewhere where they may not be available.
Avoid becoming dehydrated. This is a common cause of urinary tract infections - a painful affliction when travelling. Dehydration is a particularly serious risk in hot climates and you should drink plenty of bottled water - being careful to check the seal on bottles first.

So far the 15 rulers on our list have held on to their riches, despite controversy ranging from tax evasion to the dissolution of parliaments in Swaziland and Kuwait. As a group, the world's 15 richest royals have increased their total wealth to A$152 billion, up from A$110 billion last year.
At the top of our list is Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej, whose A$40 billion estimated net worth is up sevenfold as a result of increased transparency of his Crown Property Holdings. He takes the top spot from the only other Asian monarch on the list, the Sultan of Brunei, worth A$23 billion, one of only two rulers worth less than they were last year. The sultan, who inherited the riches of an unbroken 600-year-old Muslim dynasty, has had to cut back on his country's oil production because of depleting reserves.

Yeah...I was shocked. Someone fearing that the world would end had first ended her life by drinking pesticide.
A girl, 16 years of age, from India.
Her name was Chayya.
She killed herself after watching doomsday predictions showed on Indian news programs.

Built in a tunnel 100 metres below ground in a complex straddling the French-Swiss border, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is designed to accelerate sub-atomic particles to nearly the speed of light and then smash them together.
The collisions will briefly stoke temperatures 100,000 times hotter than the sun, fleetingly replicating conditions which prevailed in split-seconds after the "Big Bang" that created the universe 13.7 billion years ago.
In this seething primordial soup, novel particles may lurk.
Discovering them could resolve mysteries clouding our understanding of how matter is constituted and came into being, scientists say.
"It's about acquiring knowledge for humanity about the behaviour of fundamental matter," physicist Daniel Denegri told AFP.
"We expect to make discoveries that could be rather spectacular."
Shortly after 9.30am Wednesday (1730 AEST), the first protons were injected into the 27km ring-shaped tunnel at the headquarters of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).
It has required nearly two decades, six billion Swiss francs ($A6.64 billion) and 5,000 scientists, engineers and technicians from nearly three dozen countries to bring the LHC to fruition.
Wednesday's operation began a long and cautious commissioning process, testing equipment and procedures, before starting experiments a matter of weeks from now.

The Show was more than what I had expected. :D
Had got 2 showbags, since the items listed in my wishlist was rather dissapointing.
Anyhow, at least I managed to save on that bit. :))
So I was walking at the exhibitions when a booth interests me.
A booth selling a wardrobe space saver.
Apparently, I found myself having a conversation with the seller before he even actually promoted on the item he was selling.
He had asked me what am I current studying and so I answered him.
At that moment of answering, he gave me an 'oh-no-you're in SERIOUS-trouble' gesture (he had dunked his face into his arms which were resting on the rails of the clothes line).
I was like, what? What's wrong with that?'
And then he answered, "You should learn politics with that".
And that was when I discovered that he was quite knowledgeable on Malaysian issues of politics. He had travelled quite a number of times to Malaysia.
He had told me that everything, well, almost everything is political driven.
Haha. I was impressed because it IS somewhat true.
Yeah, apart from that, like any other non-Asians, he said that the food is good and loved it very much (he was from Perth).

Anyway, I think this post would be a different one.
Something that has got to do about myself.
I've been tagged by missaussie.
Needed some time to contemplate on what to write on the "15 weird things/habits/little known facts about myself".
OK so here goes nothing!
1. I loooove mangoes and mangosteens! and buying Mango.Evrything that has got to do with the term 'mango'.
2. I used to name myself of different names from what I have now, which I have never told anyone.
3. Communicating with the senior who sat on the very same place as I did during high school years (I was in Form 1 and she was a Fifth Former) by leaving short notes under my desk. (Well, she did to!)
4. Tend to shop more and more clothes and when I find out that I still have other rarely-used clothes because I forgot they even existed.
5. Loves travelling even it requires me to travel one whole day on a tuk-tuk (bicycle driven carriage, or whatever you called it)
6. I'm prone to itchyness due to skin sensitivity because of weather change, etc.
7. I love big bags as I could shove everything inside it and later getting trouble to look for little little things in it. When I'm comfortable with it, I'll use it everyday to school and even going out.
8. Hates changing wallets because I won't get the same feeling if I were to get a new one. I'm used to all the compartments in my same ol' wallet. I dont care how old it would turn out to be.
9. I have a scar on my forehead (and used to associate myself with Harry Potter, except for the lightning scar part). Hahaa..Good ol' timessss.
10. I get inspirations when I bathe.
11. A passion on looking for new bedsheets, pillowcases, duvet, quilt covers, etc. It gives me the excitement when sleeping because of the different colours.
12. I like going to hospitals. Getting the smell of it.
13. I edit pics when I'm bored.
14. Go shopping alone when I'm relieved after putting effort on a helluva work/assignment. I'll tend to take all the time in the world trying on clothes etc. etc and making up my mind and looking at different shops of the similar item and more and more.
15. I sometimes don't even know what I write or post. ;P
So, I'm tagging:
