"It takes millions of people to complete this world but it only takes you to complete me."

Just forget about the title. It is not at-all related to what I'm going to put in this entry. I simply love it. So, it is February now! Time flies too fast..sometimes I feel like it is still 2009. Whatever it is, I like this February for some reasons.

1. Chinese New Year (CNY) - means holiday...and yeah, I have applied for some more holidays in addition to CNY. I am actually planning to prepare for my sister's engagement ceremony, and going to some nice places (Beaches is one of them of course!). Congrats to my sister who will get married this year. Wish you all the best!

2. I've wanted to buy a new camera since after my internship last two years, but I never did because I already bought one during my internship. Now I think it is about time to buy another one. It will be my fourth camera. Not sure this time it will be another Canon or not. Still surveying what's the best based on my budget & other criteria.

3. I'm happy to share that my work in deviantart: now one of my best seller in my gallery! It all started after three days I posted the work on the site & someone has bought a 36 x 36 inch print of the photo. Now, 5 pieces of the same photo have been sold. Alhamdulillah :)

4. Now almost everyone is on Facebook. It's like you're left behind if you're not on Facebook. I can see some people who update their Facebook status almost every hour, of every day. I'm very impressed! I don't even have idea of what to share on daily basis! I still remember how I loved Friendster about two to three years ago, and now the hype is not there. Will Facebook become like it one day? Well, lets just wait n see..

Enough said. More updates later if I have time + mood. ^_^

AVATAR: One of the best EVER.

If you don't know what Avatar is, let me is an icon representing yourself in cyberspace. LOL, just kidding! Avatar is the new movie directed by James Cameron, the director who produced the epic movie, Titanic in 1997.

At first, I hesitated a lot whether I want to watch "Avatar" after looking at very high rating (8.9/10) given by users in IMDB. Based on my previous experience, a very high rating for a movie sometimes is very overrated.

So, I watched Avatar without a very high expectation, and guess what it was awesome!! The effects, the story line, the musics and everything in it is freakin' amazing! It is such a long time I didn't see such great movie after the Lord Of The Ring and Titanic. It is full of great messages about humanity...about relationship between human & nature; about how wars can devastate human & nature.

It is a must watch movie not just for its CGI effects but it IS a great movie. My rating = 9.0/10. So, in conjunction with this movie, I officially changed my desktop wallpaper to this one:

It will gonna stay that way for quite some time, I think. :P

PETRONAS in now the title sponsor of Mercedes GP

I read about this news in Paul Tan's last night & confirmed it today as it is written in Harian Metro.

"PETRONAS has just moments ago announced that it will be the title sponsor of Mercedes GP! This comes as a surprise after it was widely reported that the national oil company will be ending its involvement in F1 as a team sponsor. The choice of Mercedes GP is also unexpected – after all Malaysia has its “own” team in Lotus F1. The five-year agreement with Mercedes comes after Petronas’ deal with BMW Sauber ended in the just concluded 2009 season. Under this new deal, Petronas will be the title partner to the Silver Arrows works team, which will be officially known as the Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team."

Read more HERE for more info.

In my opinion, of course I think it is a very good move by PETRONAS. It will surely boost the company brand name worldwide since Mercedes, as all of us know is a very famous car-maker. I did admit my desire & passion for one of the Mercedes' cars. Well, who didn't want a Mercedes? 0_o

Some will say that PETRONAS should sponsor Lotus F1 Team because they are from the same country. Well, I think it is not right to say that PETRONAS is not patriotic enough just because they chose Mercedes instead of Lotus Team. Business is business, it is nothing personal. I've seen how 'big' Mercedes is in Germany itself. The "WOW" factor didn't come easily for them. They have BMW and Volkswagen (VW) as immediate rivals from the same country, but they somehow manage to be among the best.

If I own a company, I surely want my company to be associated with other great companies like Mercedes. Lotus F1 should gain that "WOW" factor first, then I think there will be no problem for them getting big sponsorship (might even bigger than PETRONAS) but for now I think the situation is fair enough.

Last time when I heard the news that BMW have withdrawn from Sauber Team, and eventually followed by PETRONAS, I was little bit upset. Now, I should say that I am quite proud & happy with the current news...Mercedes GP PETRONAS. Wow! I wish them all the best in years to come :)

Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha...

Alhamdulillah, Insya Allah aku akan balik kampung sempena hari raya korban esok. Ingatkan tahun ni sekali lagi terpaksa beraya di rantauan macam tahun dua tahun lepas kerana tanggungjawab kerja.

Hari raya korban @ haji memang tak semeriah hari raya puasa (persiapan untuk menyambutnya pun x sehebat hari raya puasa), tapi aku rasa hari raya haji sangat special kerana adanya ibadah korban.

Tiga hari lepas aku akhirnya selamat mengupdate Windows Vista kepada Windows 7. So far so good. Ada improvement sedikit daripada Vista in term of performance and user interface. I like the new user interface walaupun baru beberapa hari digunakan - still adapting myself with it. :)

My current desktop with Windows 7:

Back to the topik, aku ingin mengucapkan
Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha
kepada semua rakan-rakan di mana jua anda berada...semoga berbahagia hendaknya. :)

Cari Jodoh...

It's such a long time I didn't do anything about this blog except accessing the links to my friends' blogs at the right side. I really admire some of friends who can keep their blog updated all the time and their entries are really fun to read. Care to give some tips? :)

About the title, it's NOT me who is going to "cari jodoh". It's not in any way related to me. It's actually a song by "Wali Band" that I recently enjoy listening to as suggested by my desperate little brother weeks ago :P. Memang kelakar sikit lirik dia (ada jugak part yang aku tak setuju, cth: apa salah ibuku???), tapi lagunya memang catchy. Video dia pun kelakar... I love how the guy finally manage to "cari jodoh" at the end of the clip. Layan...~ ;)

You can watch the video HERE

Wali Band - Cari Jodoh

Apa salahku apa salah ibuku
Hidupku dirundung pilu
Tak ada yang mau dan menginginkan aku
Tuk jadi pengobat pilu
Tuk jadi penawar rindu
Tuk jadi kekasih hatiku

Timur ke barat selatan ke utara
Tak juga aku berjumpa
Dari musim duren hingga musim rambutan
Tak kunjung aku dapatkan
Tak jua aku temukan
Oh tuhan inikah cobaan

Ibu-ibu bapak-bapak
Siapa yang punya anak
Bilang aku aku yang tengah malu
Sama teman-temanku
Karna cuma diriku yang tak laku-laku

Siapa yang mau bantu
Tolong aku kasihani aku
Tolong carikan diriku kekasih hatiku
Siapa yang mau

Back to *, **, ***

Ibu bapak punya anak
Bilang-bilang aku aku yang tengah malu
Sama teman-temanku
Karna cuma diriku yang tak laku-laku

Back to ***

Last but not least, my latest work in deviantART:

Feel free to comment (here or there)

See you later, then :D

Berhabuk lagi berdebu.

Sudah lebih 3 bulan tanpa apa-apa blog update. Sudah berhabuk, berdebu dan segala macam ber.. lagi blog aku yang tak seberapa ni. Aku sebenarnya ketandusan idea untuk menulis. Selepas tamat belajar di UTP, aku hanya duduk berehat dan bersenang-lenang di rumah. Mak aku pun cakap, rehat2 sajalah setelah penat belajar selama ini..lepas ni kena kerja dah tak ada masa nak rehat lagi...aku setuju saja =D

Last month, I went back to UTP for the UTP 9th Convocation ceremony. Dapat juga menerima scroll daripada Tun Dr. Mahathir. Bukan apa, aku dulu mula-mula masuk UTP asyik berangan-angan untuk menerima scroll daripada Tun. Famili aku, kecuali dua orang adik aku semua berkesempatan datang meraikan majlis konvokesyen aku. Alhamdulillah, segalanya berjalan lancar.

bersama mak dan ayah selepas menerima ijazah.

bersama best buddy at the evening after ceremony.

As for career part, alhamdulillah, I am now part of Vinyl Chloride (M) Sdn. Bhd. (VCMSB), a PETRONAS subsidiary company. Being appointed as a Process Engineer, responsible for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) process technology, I'm not really sure about my exact scope of work so far since I was there for only three days (of briefing and induction program, etc), but I think it will be very challenging. I'm quite nervous. To think of it, will I be able to cope really well with the working environment later? Apa-apa pun, aku sentiasa berharap dan bedoa semoga segala yang aku lakukan nanti aku mendapat keberkatan daripada-Nya. Insya Allah.

As for the blogging part, I'll try my best to update it whenever I have time and ideas. and mood too. Kepada semua teman seperjuangan, aku doakan semoga kita masing-masing dapat mencapai apa yang diimpikan, dan semoga perjuangan kita sentiasa mendapat keberkatan daripada Allah. Amin.

Selamat berpuasa semua. =D

Alhamdulillah. Unofficially graduated.

Alhamdulillah. Today, I completed my last final examination paper and final year project oral presentation. I'm fully satisfied with both. Everything went well, much better than what I expected in my mind earlier.

I went to the multipurpose hall for the final examination at around 8.15 am. The examination started at 9.00 am, but I was too excited to finish it up once and for all. At 11.30 am, I went out of the examination hall. My fingers were still a little bit cramped all over at that time cause I tried to write as fast as I can. I rechecked the paper only once and that's it. I want to stay longer, but I had another thing to catch up with at 12.40 pm - my final presentation.

One of my colleagues, Zaid was still presenting his project when I arrived at the presentation venue. At 12.10 noon, he completed his presentation. I started my presentation at 12.15 noon and ended it at 12.45. Got few questions mostly from internal lecturer. External examiner was really kind and supportive. He gave a few recommendations on how to improve the project. I think this session was much better than the poster presentation last month. :)

As soon as I completed my presentation, I called my mother. I was really happy and satisfied the moment I said "Mum, I've finished everything today". (in my own dramatic dialect, of course). Oh, btw I still have to print the final reports and give them some "hardbound" touches. :P

I'm very happy right now but deep in my heart I know I'll be going out for the real life journey after this. To think of it further will make me worry so much but for now, thank you Allah for giving me chance to complete my study with a happy ending. I couldn't have done it without time, good health and spirit that You've given. Alhamdulillah.

Tertarik dengan entri Jazlin tentang tanggungjawab. Mungkin ramai yang tahu maksud tanggungjawab tetapi belum sedar akan kepentingan dan bagaimana ingin melaksanakannya dalam kehidupan seharian. Bagi aku, tak kira tanggungjawab itu besar atau kecil, semuanya sama. Masing-masing punya peranan tersendiri. Mungkin bagi kamu suatu tanggungjawab itu kecil, tapi bagi aku tanggungjawab yang sama itu besar maknanya.

Tanggungjawab bila menggunakan barang orang lain, yang aku rasakan makin dilupakan dari semasa ke semasa:

1. Kalau nak guna barang orang lain, pinjam dengan elok jangan main ambik saja. Mungkin tuan punya barang itu memerlukan barang itu pada masa yang sama ia di"kebas". Yep, I used term "kebas" sebab itu memang hakikatnya.

2. Dah pandai pinjam, pandailah pulangkan balik. Jangan biar tuan punya barang yang terhegeh-hegeh mintak balik.

3. Dah pulangkan, at least say thank you/terima kasih. Tak hilang gigi walau sebatang kalau perkataan itu diucapkan walau beratus kali.

This is not in any way related to Jazlin experience, it is from my own experience staying in hostel starting from Form 4. Ingatkan bila dah masuk Universiti, mentaliti orang yang berpelajaran tinggi tentang tanggungjawab lebih mantap, tapi ternyata happens all the time over and over.

Ini baru tanggungjawab tentang menggunakan barang orang lain, belum lagi menyentuh tentang benda lain yang lebih besar. Mungkin bagi kamu hal ini kecil, tapi bagi can change how I think about you, overall. (I'm no judge, but I can evaluate people according to my experiences with them).

Malas dh nak fikir pasal hal ni.
Buat serabut saja.

Almost the end [Part II]...

I'm going to sit for my last final examination starting from this coming Monday (May 11). Still doing head banging in front of my computer. Gotta study real soon.

FYP Presentation = Final Paper

The final year project presentation schedule is out now (latest updated on May 6). Nothing much, except that my presentation will be held on the same day as my last exam paper with 40 minutes gap. Nice..~. Before this it clashed with each other but due to my complaint the slot is now changed. I'm thinking of going out from exam hall earlier that day, but only God knows if the exam paper is going to be manageable.

My Latest Artwork

I want to share something, this my latest work in deviantART:

I'm thinking of doing a cat poster after this if I have time. Ah, lagho nya aku...

May 10

May 10 is coming, and I can't run from thinking of my late grandfather who passed away 5 years ago on the same date. I wish that he is with me right now, giving me chance to at least say thank you for all the love and encouragement that he gave me since I was a child. I don't know how I can repay him for what he has done except to pray that he will always be blessed by Allah.

Reality, it's too sad to be true but you can't avoid it anyway cause it's real as it is.

Anyway, good luck to all for the coming exams!

Home sweet home: Almost the end....

I'm at my home right now, the best place on earth. My best buddy drove us home as usual. Thanks best buddy - I want the photos of me (you, and kak G) and the flowers (cumilnye..) later. Don't forget aaa...

I had the best chicken rice (nasi ayam) in the world just now. My mum & sis cooked it knowing that I'm coming back today. They didn't told me's a surprise as usual. Cool. :D

This will be my last holiday before completing my study. It is almost the end of another chapter in my life as a student in UTP. About five years ago, when I first joined UTP, I had a feeling that it would be very difficult to survive competing with so many great students. Being chosen is a great thing, but being the survivor among the fittest is another thing.

I think I did survive but I've never regarded myself as a good student. I didn't study as much as some of my friends did. I didn't buy many textbooks cause if I bought all of them, I'll not read anyway. Some of the books that I bought weren't used at all. I wasn't really close to any lecturer as opposed to one my senior's advice to get close to the lecturers. I didn't pay much attention in the class and I missed "some" of my classes for some unreasonable reasons. Now that there will be no more classes in the future, I did regret not attending some of the classes before, how ironic.

I attended my last class yesterday. It was Gas Process Engineering. Majority of the students were not there because of other commitments (presentations, reports, etc). I went just because I didn't want to miss my last class in my schedule as a student. For this reason, I was quite happy. In fact, I was really impressed to see my lecturer's willingness to teach even though there are not many in the class. I should have had his spirit to learn from the first day in UTP! Haha :P

Wow, it's quite long. I never talk about myself and UTP so much in the blog before this. Enough for now, good luck to all UTPians who are going to sit for their final examination starting from next week (May 11). All the best, May Allah be with us during our struggle to achieve the best results. :D
