Another day of winter: Battery

Thursday, December 1, 2011

The other day, I was watching an episode of Type-Moon's Carnival Phantasm when a character from that episode mentions about "Enerloop" batteries.

Honestly, that was the first time I heard about that brand.

Anyway, time goes by, and a friend of mine recently ordered a set of batteries online.
And to my surprise, he ordered Eneloop batteries!!... Oh! The brand actually does EXIST, so I said with excitement. (with a minor difference, i.e the spelling is different compared to the one in anime: Enerloop vs Eneloop.)

Since I am also coincidentally in need of rechargeable batteries to power my noise cancelling headphones, I told myself... Why not? Moreover, I heard that these batteries last substantially longer than conventional rechargeable batteries.

Long story short, two days ago I went online and bought a set of Eneloop batteries with chargers for CAD 29.

Today, this came to my door... =D

8x AA + 4x AAA + 1 Charger for CAD29.
Woot woot woot!!

Another day of autumn: It's cold!!!

Saturday, November 5, 2011
The temperature is getting crueler. I can feel challenging days ahead of me.

The number of shirts that are comfortable for me to use has been drastically reduced by 50%.

My nose and ears start to feel numb within 1 minute each time I go outside.

Yeap, winter is coming.

I need the HEAT!

Ya Allah, please assist me so that I continue to have the willpower to get through the semester with my best.

Another day of autumn: No skip class... yet ^^

Wednesday, October 19, 2011
I'm proud to announce that I haven't skipped any class yet for the semester.

(No oversleep etc, a problem since my first year)

This is only a personal achievement. I'm not saying that skipping class is totally disastrous. In fact, most people in my class sometimes HAVE to skip certain class to attend job interviews. Every morning I can see a couple of people smartly wearing coat in class, trying to look professional.

Even the instructor mentioned that every student is responsible to cover the material discussed in class themselves. So, basically, most of the effort is done by the students. Attending class would be just more helpful and it avoids the frustration of tracing back in-class notes from peers.

Yeah, so I hope this routine will be retained for the rest of the semester.

My new friend. lol

Another day of autumn: In-between assignment blog post

Friday, September 30, 2011
To be more precise, "blog post in between assignment breaks". haha.

First, it feels good to be home. Fifth home to be exact. -__-"

Secondly, I would like to wish a big appreciation and thank you to my family because they convinced me as always that "there is no place like home". << this home refers to the one we are currently staying in Kuching.
Lol, I doubt any of my family members knows my blog, haha.

Thirdly... I enjoyed my spring/summer break so much. ^^ Thank you guys.

Here's a sneakpeak of me in front PC. Haha.

This is me as I write this. LoL!

Haha. Okay. Back to my assignment!

Another cloudy day: Got an Int. Driving License!

Saturday, August 27, 2011
With 3-4 days towards Eid Fitr, everyone seems to be rushing like there's no tomorrow.

Today I supposed to help my parent looking for stuff to decorate my house with, but I took the day off. Anyway, no one's at home when I woke up, so I feel lonely, hence I thought about updating my blog. Haha.

Okay. So What happened recently?

Yesterday,... I went to JPJ to get my international license.

There were not many people at JPJ yesterday.

It didn't took long before it was my turn. I guess people are busy preparing for raya instead huh.

And soon after that, I get my own International Driving License! Yeaaaayyyy!!
The driving license, full with stamps and signatures
The sad part is it costs RM150.
Additionally, since my normal driving license is also expiring, they need to renew it first, adding rm30 to the total.
So, there, RM180 flew.

To be honest, I have little interest to drive oversea. I just want to be able to drive legally when I am needed to.
Of course, I do want to try driving from the left seat, but that's all it gets. No more than that. Haha.

p/s: Hrmmm...  I think I saw a picture of Canadian friend with a Lamborghini on facebook the other day.. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. **drool**

Another cloudy day - Mental preparation

Saturday, July 23, 2011
It has been 3 months since spring summer holiday started.

At first, I was worried that I will waste the long holiday with useless activities. However, alhamdulillah, at home, I can always find the needs of doing some meaningful stuff. So far, yeap, I am satisfied.  Not to mention that I can unleash my driving powaaa!!

As a side note, automatic trans. > manual trans. I want to enjoy the ride, not the sound of my engine -_-.

It appears that the last month of holiday will coincide with the month of Ramadhan. I am wishing that the month will help me further in preparing me for another 2 years of journey oversea. To be specific, I need to ensure that I am secured physically, and mentally.

Physically as in health obviously, and mentally as in to have the will-power to keep working. Insyaallah.

As for my dilemma of whether I should celebrate Eid Fitr here in Kuching, yes, I think I would. Thanks to those who put weight on that decision.

So... yeah, later.

(p/s: I am currently playing Steins;Gate visual novel for PC. It is in Japanese language, but I manage to find an active translator(ITH, Atlas, TA) to help me translate while reading. Anyone has any info on it, or is interested can drop me a message =D)

Thoughts - Influence

Monday, July 18, 2011
Last few weeks, my sister uttered something like this during our conversation about our viewpoint to everyone around us.
"The only thing I cared for is my own belief on matters"
and I replied something like this,
"Good, that is a strong and important statement that will help you..."

Of course, being not-in-a-tv-or-movie this conversation was, a moments later I regret and wished that I would have said something potentially more beautiful .. like

"It is good that you are able to think like that. Only strong people can say those. However, for now just keep it. Be a good girl and listen to your parents. The time will come in the future where you will be in trouble and at that moment, that hold will help you."

Oh well... I hope they will eventually grow up eventually as fine ladies. Haha. No really I'm serious.


From my point of view, I am actually glad I manage to be a person that they can feel comfortable to talk with, and they actually are willing to share seriously about their life how they see it (aside from complaining about how bad they hate maths in school -__-").

...and that is like a DREAM COME TRUE for me.

One of the reasons is being able to share.

Like I said to my friends the other days, I think the best satisfaction is when you can deliver your experience and knowledge to other people, esp. the next generation, and see them grow up along with your passed thoughts.

Another cloudy day - mood swing

Monday, June 27, 2011
Today I wake up finding myself alone at home, without tv, food, water , and bright sunshine.

Well, of course I could turn on the tv if I want to, or.. I could go to the kitchen to eat stuffs, or I can just go outside to enjoy the view.

But I think I like it inside the house. It feels soo quiet that I can recognize all sources of sound wave that reached my ears. At least that's what I thought.
Maybe I should've mentioned that I live in a moderately busy town, Matang Jaya.

Combining the 2 factors above, results in a magnificent observation of my surrounding.

I can somehow feel a stressed woman driving a car on nearby road heading to school getting her child.
I can somehow feel a satisfied mechanic downstair who managed to start the engine of his client.
I can somehow feel how birds can chirp all-out with every person nearby ignoring them.
I can somehow feel a truck owner finally reached his destination, then looking for his customer.
And many more.


It is not in my interest to talk about something out of the blue. Here is my reason.
A while back, I talked about how similar life is to RPG, and how everyone other than me is no different than NPCs.
Well, I must admit though, these 'NPCs' are amazing. They accomplish their own work. They work independently or dependently with other 'NPCs'.

Unlike NPCs in RPGs, there is one special attribute in the people around me.
They live their life like me. A dynamic life, full of objectives and emotions.

Hrmm... so I don't know how to end this post.
I just hope that they all do the very best in their life, and for specific case, as a community that lives in Malaysia, will continue to help each other. ^^

Another cloudy day - I miss recording videos

Thursday, June 23, 2011
i have been in Kuching for a month now.
So far, the town is very lively with events, not to mention the illegal ones. Haha.

That aside, I'm pissed of with my decision back before my departure from Canada to just forget buying a GoPro camera.


Now I'm left in Kuching, with probably many more events to come, but without any equipment to record the events.
I'm sad...

If there is a cat without nails, that cat is analogous to me.
If there is a car without taillights, that car is analogous to me.

OMG it rhymes!

Oh well, might be good as well to just take as many pictures as I can. *sigh*

[p/s: I believe today is the first day of summer at north America =)]

Thoughts - Dependencies.

Friday, June 17, 2011
Irregularity in behavior... how do we come to the conclusion that something is irregular?

What if the irregularities will be something common in the future instead? Then by that time that behavior will no longer be irregular.

So, being regular is actually time dependent where the past is put as reference to compare what is set as current. Here we have a duration of time in which after a specific behavior persist, that behavior will be considered as regular.

Okay cool.

The question.

What is the range of the duration?
1 month?
1 year?
10 years?
Or dependent with something else?

Yeah! I love dependencies! ^^

Another day of spring: Home sweet home, Sarawak.

Tuesday, June 14, 2011
Apparently I skipped a month this time. Oh well.

Okay so here is a summary of what happened since my last post.

Another day of winter: A week prior to Final Exam.

Friday, April 8, 2011
Good morning!! Wow. Dust is everywhere!


There is only one more week before the my first final exam paper, and three weeks before the last.
BIG QUESTION, looping in my mind right now is this; what can I do to make this 'one week before exam' different from the 'one week before exam' that I've had countless times before?

Study harder? I've done that... even though it is speculate-able of how much 'harder' I've been through for the past years.

Study on the very last minute? I've done that too. The worse to date is to start revision 30 minutes before my paper -.-. (Don't try this at home, kids)

Partying in MMORPG the night before exam? I could be proud of this easily.

Of course, another question that leads to the previous question is; why do I want something different now?
Simple, yet meaningful question.

There is only 1 extreme of outcome that people like to have in their exams, that is the highest mark possible.
That's where the problem lies. For the last centuries, (lol) my marks has been.... what you may call... average, expected, foreseen, even before you registered for the course.

There is no problem with that really. Like a buoy at the ocean. Under state of equilibrium, the buoy must be floating on top of the water, and be at the lowest altitude in the atmosphere. That is to be expected.

What I am thinking right now is... analogicaly... if I am able to create some sort of seawave, or wind turbulent, or any anomalies that can disrupt that equilibrium, hence lifting the buoy into the air. Yeah!!

Within this 1 week, what can I do? Hrmm.

[p/s: I sent my camcorder back for manufacturer warranty repair last Wednesday. This is the first time I do such thing. It was exciting to learn how that is done ^^. I hope they correct the problem before I get back to Malaysia. If it does, I'll finish the Boom de Yada project in Malaysia insyaallah. Yea!]
[p/s/s: Winter is closing it's curtain. Can't wait to start posting with 'Another day of Spring' as the title. =)]

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Oh crap! Bored to death.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Look at these people. Are they that bored? *sarcasm*

Another day of winter: Reading week

Tuesday, February 22, 2011
This week is holiday for the university. It is called the Reading Week; which I believe intended to allow students to prepare for their oncoming midterm exams.
In my case, I had 2 of my midterms before the reading week. They were so-so. Will the reading week help me in the remaining 3 midterms? I hope it will. In fact, I'm counting on this week to keep up with my studies.

My main target however is only one; Sleep. I must replenish my sleep hours which has depreciate much for the past 5 weeks.
I also want to revise the way I do my assignments, reports etc so that it could be done earlier and I could have a good sleep hours.

I probably have posted about sleep hours many times in this blog. Haha. That is probably one thing that I am still struggling to manage.

I guess that's all. This Wednesday I'm going to join my friends for a trip to Calgary... about 600 km to the south. I hope it will be a comfortable trip. lol.

[p/s: I think starting my post title with series name sounds more manageable. Like 'Another day of' series is for post about life and so on. I'll come up with others as I post about them]

Another day of winter

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Outside, the nature seems struggling keep itself warm. So far, not a week has passed with a steady temperature. I'm not in a position to complain though. I like it that way. Everyday the road to school is different. One day, it feel rocky, another day it could be slushy, some other days it could be icy, some other days it is muddy. Well, that is winter for you.

Now, 10pm, sitting in the university cafeteria-like building (it's called CAB) wondering what is the plan for tomorrow and the consequent days. I'll have my first midterm of the semester in 4 days. I wonder if I studied enough.

Alhamdulillah, so far I'm still keeping my first-day-of-the-term momentum. I hope I'll continue to do so.

Academic aside, I will probably fly back home in a couple of month. Haven't done any booking yet, since the flight fare is still beyond acceptable price. Right now, the big issue is... what should I do at home?
I don't want my 2 month in Malaysia to wrap-up with me playing ps3 most of the time. Oh yeah, btw, I'm getting a ps3. RPG ftw!

Guess that's all. I'll also update my 2011 resolution very soon.

All the best~(to myself obviously)

Fixed "Versus Malware"

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Two days ago, this blog site has been labeled as 'Attack Page' by Google. I got a few complaints from my peers that their websites also received the same warning and saying that it originated from my site.

Sorry guys. I hope I didn't cause any major reduction to traffic to your websites. However, I can assure you if it only originated from my site, then there was no actual malware-spreading going on. It was just a warning because of bad link.

I removed those bad links and things should run back smoothly now. ;D


Tuesday, February 8, 2011


Tuesday, February 8, 2011
I wonder. What is the thing that motivates thinking.

I can for example, turn to a page of my math textbook and think nothing of it.
On other situation, I can turn to that same page, and starts to wonder what does the bunch of text/equations mean.

Well, yeah, I can certainly say that in the second case I put my thought on it as an answer.
However, that is where the problem is...

What is the process before that?
What is there between looking at sentences/equations and thinking about it?

Is there some sort of 'switch' that when turned on, ACTIVATES thinking? If there is, how do I turn on the switch?
In computer analogy..., how do I start writing on the input buffer?

If I know that, I can probably do what people call PAYING ATTENTION more effectively.

Happy New Year 2011

Friday, January 7, 2011
Today, January 6th is my birthday according to Solar Calendar. It also marks the beginning of 2011.

Last year, I made the resolution of getting A's and finish a diary. The path of getting all A's was harsh to me so I didn't get it, but I did try my best. Diary? Heh, I got a better picture diary. =D. It's cooler.
My Hatachi project is still ongoing with a little bit of additions.
As I grow up, I find keeping resolutions are very useful especially if you got it written somewhere. It probably works just like writing the 'Objective' section in your experiment report. It helps me to keeping track of what I want to do 'in overall'.

Daily life is full with infinite of sub-objectives. It varies from large event of going to supermarket to buy food to very small event of hitting the space bar on the keyboard. Who knows the number of events you have done in one night. They are all relative and depends on what can be considered an obvious events with cause and effect.

In between those events are choices. "What letter should I press next". "Which transport should I use to get home". Etc. These are the one that is affected by the larger objectives you have beforehand, which could be, "Typing my name" or "To get home as fast as I can".

Extend it a little bit more, you can see where the yearly resolution can come into play.Having yearly resolutions is not a must, but a indeed good addition to your life.


So I made my own cake on my own birthday. Of course, I don't expect anyone to make one for me. So, rather than I have a dull night, might be good to have a homemade cake to eat aye? Haha.
Cheesecake! =D

So, I believe another resolution should take place. Unfortunately, I feel uneasy with the exam I just went through. And I can't define my course of action completely without knowing what will happen in the near future. Therefore, I will postpone the new year resolution till next month that is when everything should be settled. Will update this post again. =D Ganbaru!

p/s: Miss my p/s section T_T.
p/s2: Will probably continue to blog this year. I've collected quite a lot of skillz and it is a waste not to share. Hahax.
p/s3: Should I buy a ps3?


Hello blogger. It has been a while since my last post.
What happened was I was trying to focus more on my studies. I eliminated a few online activities and ended up including blogging as well.

Fall 2010 term has passed. There are a total of 5 more terms to go. The next one, Winter 2011, will start just next week. I'm not sure if I did well or not. I hope I did. Relatively I have put more work in my studies throughout the term.
Homeworks never fail to be sux, but promising to aid understanding as always.
The best part is surely working with foreign student(or me as foreign student working with local students you could say ;D) in group projects and labs. In Mec E we have been taught to expect different type of people in a group and ways to work with them. I must say, it works! The idea of group as a separate entity than the individuals who make up the group is very interesting. You could have the person you hate the most in the group, but still be an efficient group. Might post up something on that later.

However, I doubt the final exams did me much good. One of the courses, statics should be the subject I'm ace on but the its exam was consecutively held after another exam. It was really tiring, so I don't think I gave my best on that. :(
The reexamination procedure on Academic Calendar doesn't seems to allow my conditions though. I guess I will have to check it out with the people in charge in person.

I believe these are BIG hints that Mara will contact me again soon =_=.
Ya Allah please help me go through this with peace.

Right now I'm thinking the course of action I should take. The nonconsecutive classes is good, however the cons is there as well. Yeap! The 8am is an obvious obstacle especially during Winter months. My inspiration right now: comparing to the people, lecturers, and a few local friends who have to wake up at 5am and commute a longer distance than I do, I am an absolute jerk to complain. Haha.

That's all about school I guess.

Then,.... continued in next post with different title. =D
