Long story short, I bought my first jeans for the first time after 20 years of living.
I only wear slacks or thick cottoned slacks (which I can only find at Wisma Satok, Kuching so far) before.
I find side pockets are more convenient to me. They are especially larger and comfortable for me to fit devices.
I also like how I can move freely with them. I can do an instant turning-kick or a downward kick some more without having to adjust my legs here and there. Well, objectively that is true.

でも ね。。。(however...)
Naa.. of course I don't expect myself to wear what I brought from Malaysia for the whole time I'm here, can I?

So, today I decided to find new slacks.
I went to West Edmonton Mall.
... were looking around.
... were looking around a bit more.

Turned out... there is NO thick-cottoned type that I always preferred.
Perhaps there are stores that I haven't visit yet inside there.

...incidentally, I got into this one store.
To make things further short, I like the specific type of JEANS they offered, which suits my needs and upcoming needs, so I bought them.

Done. Off to sleep.
Tomorrow, ... I mean, later today, if I wake up early enough, I want to go there again. Finishing the incomplete ;)

[p/s: I think I saw myself wearing jean in a picture when I was small. I don't count that one. It wasn't my choice.]
[p/s2: Sometimes I pity myself for seeing things so objectively. Haha!]

Season shift...

Sunday, May 23, 2010
Fall to Winter...
Winter to Spring...

I'm amazed just by observing.

I had absorbed the idea of urbanization before, which is how cities emerge over time.
I also understand when technology advances... more equipments and gadgets are able to assist people.

But to make appearance of a place to change, those two are simply slow...

Today... everything is green. The next day, everything is white.
No matter my house or your house. No matter the sky-scrapper or shelter for those who can't afford a house..
Not just to the place, but to the people as well. Everyone changes their attire to ensure maximum heat.
No matter they are professionals, or those without job.
No matter they are adult, or just babies.

Today, everything is white. The next day, everything simply change.
No matter if you are blind or deaf, you feel the changes. Indeed a BIG change.
It doesn't take a century for that change to occur. Not even a decade.

It just takes ONE NIGHT for everyone to feel the difference.

...and yet people are not involved in the process.

Yours truly,

[p/s: イア~... I was rewatching Clannad After Story when I reached episode 22 where a song that mentions about season change is played in the background; Chiisana Te no Hira. So, I thought myself that somehow what Nagisa-chan was talking also applies to the city I currently live in, hence my post. XD
Here is the link to that scene]

My first free fall. Not quite, but it feels so!

Sunday, May 16, 2010
Today I decided to follow my friends to go to Waterpark at Edmonton, located inside West Edmonton Mall. The place is somewhat similar to Sunway Lagoon at Subang Jaya, but I don't know which one is better though. The last time I went to Sunway Lagoon is when I was 10.

This picture covers about half of the place.

I never play with any long ramp before. Even at SL, I was too small that my parent didn't allow me to try any. 
GUESS WHAT.... my first water slide in my life is on the highest and the steepest ramp in RED as shown in the picture! SHEET! 

How was it? ...
I let my friends go first. They slide really fast. The water splash looks so cool as they slide across. Well, I just want to anticipate how would it feel before I try it myself. Then it is my turn.
So I sit on the ramp... move a little bit to get myself moving. Suddenly... ! 

 ---Bullet-time starts---(On top)
"I'm not moving yet, let me move a little bit"
"mgh=(1/2)*mv^2... mgh=(1/2)*mv^2..."
"Oh.. still not moving,... lemme push a bit..."
"I think I'm moving now"
"It is quite high isn't it... so I will move faster soon"
"Owh sheet!!!"
---Bullet-time ends---

I underestimated the ramp...

---Bullet-time starts again --- (Midway)
"Aahh! Am I sliding??!?!?!?!?!"
"Aaaargh! How long has it been???????"
"Aaaaa! Am I at the bottom yet??????"
"Ah! I want to hold something.... this is too FAST!!!"
"Aahh! I didn't feel a thing on my back!!!!!"
"Am I on anything?? The ramp didn't BROKE right?!?!?!?!"
"Isn't there anything I can hold onto?? Anything?!!!?!?"
"...Ya Allah, I am at your mercy... T_T....whatever, help me!!!"
"Argh!!! this is TOO FAST!!!!"
"This should be one of the Killing Machine for Discovery Channel, aaaarh!!!"
---Bullet-time ends---

"AAaaaaaaaaAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!", all the way to the bottom, then,

I was FREEFALLING!!! SHEET! I thought I can at least feel the ramp's normal force acting on my back. I thought wrong!!! There's only a slight sensation of water splashes on my back. Not bad... not bad...
Then at the bottom I start laughing to myself. Haha. It was actually fun lol!!

 Picture from the top. Almost half of the red ramp was so steep that they aren't visible from that view. See?

I at least tried to anticipate the ramp earlier... but I didn't anticipate for the pool waiting for me at the bottom at all.
It took me a while to realize where did I fall at the bottom. I wasn't sure where should I go. 
"Should I swim? or should I just walk? but which way? Ah, the security patrol is asking me to get out of here. Ah! I'm stuck."
I guess my mind was still on the ramp lol. So I had Akmal to help me. Ahah! Thanks!

So, that was my first. We tried several other ramps after that. I can feel Adrenaline Rush working inside me. Ahaha! Only after that I realized the first ramp I said earlier was categorized as Extreme. Among others include Intermediate, Easy, Advance. Lol. 
*Rasa nak ketuk je kepala diorang ni. Ade ke bagi naik yg paling extreme dulu -.-*
Then we spent the rest of the time playing with artificial wave at the large pool. Never thought people enjoy being hit by wave that much. Somehow that doesn't make much sense to me.. -.-.

To conclude, I want to go there again!! To Ariff, Akmal, Cimi, and Ejan, thanks for bringing me along today! =)

One interesting fact from destination360.com
"The West Edmonton Mall holds the world record for the largest mall in the world, and employs over 15,000 people. The mall attracts around 55,000 people a day, totaling to about 20 million visitors a year!"

p/s: Like Akmal in his blog said... today we saw a lot of thing we shouldn't -.-.... "kene wat solat taubat"

How am I doing.. hah!

Monday, May 10, 2010
There are quite many things happened recently. Well, that statement is always true. The thing that make it different is when you get involve with them. Hah!

Chronologically, i had my final exams, then 4 months of holiday follows which contains a lot of other stuff.

A little bit of comment about the exam. I would say it was like a common nightmare. Apparently Shahronizam of 5 months ago saved me. I feel some kind of failure, but at the same time satisfied. Failure because, my study strategy wasn't much of help, and satisfied because, somehow I manage to follow my own strategy. AHAH! I wonder if they cancel out each other. XD
I guess I have to email an apology letter soon.
Effectively, one of my Project Hatachi resolution failed because of that. HOWEVER, that's not the end. It is just the beginning. Just like npc in many games has said, "knowing your weakness is knowing your strength". Currently devising my plan for next term.

Then, apparently, my housemate, Sadid bought a PS3. I'm glad++. Haha. The pros n cons of him buying it is more balanced than me buying it, hence solving a few dilemma I had in my mind.

Then,  I bought a set of Bose Companion 2 speaker. Honestly speaking, it is the sweetest 2.0 speaker I ever hear in my life. Hearing music never felt such fuwafuwa as that before. Worth every cent of my money spent for it.

Then,... I went to Emaan Award. To my senior, Bebee and Ariff, thank you very much. Only Allah knows best how much you two inspired me. anatatachi no egao... zettai ni itsumo oboeteru! hontou ni arigatou! mata shourai!! \(^∀^)メ(^∀^)ノ

Then, I discovered Nanami Madobe for Windows 7. Voiced by a legendary seiyuu. Thumbs up for Microsoft Japan!

Then I went to 2 BBQ events. Eaten lots of carbon. Haha! I was thinking,... some snacks are offered in BBQ flavour. What do they mean??? BBQ has specific flavour??

Then, I manage to sleep early 7 days straight. -v-

Then, thanks to Arizan Nurhizman, I rediscovered a skill I thought lost in After Effect CS3. 

Tomorrow, next term's first class starts!
Eventhough they said that I only have to pass the course, I won't slack off. It has been a while inappropriate wavelength of light fly with me. I am going to aim for a wider range of visible light. Definitely!
