Random Dialogue With Further Maths 1 Teacher! XD

Student: Teacher, will we actually use Pure Maths(Further Mathematics) in our real life?
Teacher: Not really.
Student: Then why do we learn it?
Teacher: Erm... For the BEAUTY OF MATHS!
Student: Oh, why do we need to learn all these formulae?
Teacher: To DERIVE EVEN MORE FORMULAE!
Student: LOL! XD

Further Maths rocks!

Finally, Mr. Peter—my Further Maths 1 teacher has finished teaching the very first chapter of Further Pure Maths—Summing Series/Summation. At the very first glance of this chapter, I was like “WTH~ So damn hard!”, but now, everything seems to be easy for me cause I finally got to hang on it—the style of the questions, that would usually being asked in the exams. Now only I understood why my seniors kept on saying that Summation is the easiest topic in the Further Pure Maths, cause apparently it is quite easy, if you try to understand it and familiarize yourself with the questions and “style” of the questions and answers.


Oh yeah, I just had my second Maths test today and fortunately I was able to answer all those questions, except for the bonus question, which wasn’t really important anyway. The question was comprising of 3 sub-questions, and I almost got the answer for the first question, which would finally link me to my second and third questions’ answers! What a waste! But then never mind la, it’s a bonus question anyways, right? :) It doesn’t really matter on the total marks anyways. 


Alright gotta go now! See ya! Signing off~

Hectic week!

Hello everyone, I'm back! Had a hectic week indeed due to the various tests for Economics and Physics, as well as the typical killer -- Further Maths that gonna make me lost within the deep sea if I didn't study after class. Now only I understood how's the feeling of doing a Maths question for over an hour and two pages long, with a laptop in front of me of course! =P Summing Series still rocks babe! XD Although I admit that Further Maths is incredibly tough, still I like to do it! No idea why, maybe it's the passion towards Maths lies within me I guess. There was a day which I had to attend three classes of Further Maths continuously (one class per hour) and it did blow my mind off. I was like suffocating when I came out from the class! See the power of Further Maths? XD No worries, I still love you, Further Maths! Oh, I think I was really stressed out this week due to Further Maths and the tests given by my Economics and Physics teachers, which made me laughed like a mad fella when my friends did some random jokes, to release tension stuck beneath my head. My friends all looked at me, as if I just came out from Tanjung Rambutan or anywhere like that. Oh well, laughing is one of the most effective ways to release stress, ain't it? But hey, those jokes were really hilarious you know! XD 

Oh yeah, forgot to introduce you all with my new house-mates, who are Manveer, from Ipoh; Weng Fei, from KL; And Faizzul from Sarawak. To describe them, hmm... let see... Manveer is the one who I mentioned before in my previous post -- the Sikh who was gonna be my roommate, and apparently he is my roommate now! Oh well, wanna tell you all that he is indeed a guy fulled with the sense of humour, and his expression about something is so damn funny! LOL! HAHAHAHA!!! XD Opps, gonna be mad again! Sorry peeps! XD About Weng Fei, he is a guy who loves banana so much that he eats banana every morning for his breakfast! LOL! XD He's even holding the Taekwondo Black Belt Second Dan! Wootz! Don't play play~ Next, Faizzul! He's the only guy that I know who knows how to solve 5x5 version of Rubik's Cube! OMG! I only know how to solve the 3x3 version, but not this! Apparently 5x5 version is so much complicated that the 3x3 version, and hopefully I can get to master it in this one-year time from him as my house-mate! Oh yeah, they are all studying ICPU programme in Taylor's as JPA scholars and would be flying off to Canada next year to pursue Engineering; And their dream university is the University of Toronto, where I heard that the engineering courses offered there are among the best in Canada. So yeah, good luck to them then! Thanks guys for cherish up my life as my house-mates! xD 

It is indeed very interesting to find out about life of studying ICPU from my house-mates! Just their second day and Manveer has his very first coursework to be completed within a week! And for the others, they had their very first diagnostic tests of Advanced Functions and English if I'm not mistaken. Oh yeah, and all of them have to buy the original books as their lecturers are prohibiting the usage of photocopied books -- my most preferable choice, as the original books or even second hand books are so much more expensive than the photocopied one. They have to buy the books on their own expenses as JPA doesn't cover the book fees. So yeah, when they brought back their new original books, they were like taking care of it cause the books are really expensive and costs at least RM200 each, and Manveer even smelled the book, saying that it's the smell of success! XD  They even have new graphic calculators for the subject of Advanced Function, and they started to tease A-Levels student cause their lecturer said that A-Levels' life is some sort of dark ages, which is 100% exam based programme, whereby ICPU comprises of 70% coursework and 30% exams. It was really funny when Manveer frenzied that they can even download games and gadgets from the Internet into the calculators, as it was written at the cover. But then, when he said, how to use ah? XD HAHAHAHAHA!!! I was laughing like mad cause his expression was really hilarious! Oh well, typical modernised Sikh indeed. XD 

Alright, gotta go now! Stay tuned peeps!

My Second Week in Taylor's! ^_^

Want to know any update about study? Hmm, well I think I'm coping well with Economics, Physics and Maths now, but not so pleasing for Further Pure Maths, which is still within the chapter of Summing Series for now. Just that I don't really comprehend about how this series can suddenly change into another, the process works just great for me! For Further Maths Mechanics, I think I'm having fun with it! Not much problem encountered for now. Oh yeah, I had just completed my first Maths test which covered the topics of Quadratics and Function, and I think I did well in it, but I got it wrong for second question, out of 6 questions. Never mind, let's let bygones be bygones. Up next, Economics and Physics test next week! Need to study it since Economics is a totally new subject for me, and apparently I need to understand and memorise some economical terms and theories, and try to apply those in the daily life. Hopefully I will do well in it! =)

The Malaysian Studies a.k.a MCQ, contrary to what I have heard from my seniors about its boredom, is indeed quite a fun subject due to the overwhelming sense of humour possessed by the lecturer, Mr Ari. It is quite a fun subject in the class, cause the lecturer loves to make jokes and keep the class alive! He even carried out "political campaign" in the class, urging students to vote him as the next Prime Minister of Malaysia! LOL! XD Quite funny, isn't it? =P Also, the multicultural breast feeding to develop the sense of oneness among the people of Malaysia to support the idea of 1Malaysia initiated by our PM. Haha! XD But, after I downloaded the course documents from the Blackboard 7 at the Taylor's Student Portal, I was quite surprised by the loads of notes that I have to read up. Apparently these notes are going to take off my time gradually and might affect the allocation of time for other subjects such as Further Maths and Economics. Anyways, hopefully I can utilise my time wisely and score these upcoming exams! Wish me luck peeps! =D

Life at Casa Subang! ^_^

Oh hey everyone! I know I know, I've been so quiet for all this while, or maybe just a week! =P Just to update myself, I have already relocated my apartment unit from A-17-06 up to A-19-05! Oh gosh, it's even higher now! Apparently some of my friends are envying me, saying that it will be cold at night and that's awesome since no air-cond is available in our apartment units, at least not for bankies. Undoubtedly, every benefit comes with a price that should be compensated, which is its downside! I have only one bankies house-mate, which is Harry Kumara, and he, or more precisely we, kept on complaining about the time we have to spend every day just to wait for the lift to reach our floor and take us down! Also, we have to wait for the lift to stop by one floor and another just to pick those people up, especially during peak hours (7am in the morning and 4pm in the evening).

Oh yeah, finally I changed from middle room to MASTER bedroom! Wootz! That's so so so awesome that I got to stay at larger room, and ostensibly it comes with a bathroom in it! Just that it don't have the water heater, and I have to endure the coldness of the water every morning if I were to use the master bathroom to take my bath! Nevertheless, I have get used to it and it's a good news for me! That's the advantage of me staying in the hostel for 2 years in the secondary school since I have to bath with cold water every morning! Wootz! Try to enjoy the shower of cold water pour down on me and surely I will have fun! XD Oh yeah, I will be having 3 new house-mates, who are JPA scholars and studying ADFP/ICPU in Taylor's. And I'm going to have a new roommate, who is a Sikh. I was hoping for a Chinese, but then since Miss Sonia, the manager of students accommodation arranged it in this way, never mind then! Just befriend with him and it should be alright! =)

First Week at Taylor's! ^_^

Amigos! I'm back to my home sweet home finally, after a week staying at Casa Subang and studying at Taylor's Subang! It was a really great experience that I had in this whole week, and apparently I met lots of new friends as well. Oh yeah, I'm now in PE11, a class specifically designed for students who are taking the subject combination of Further Maths, Maths, Economics and Physics. And guess what, I'm the class rep, again, and I have to do lots of works involving photostat notes and exercises! Why me??? >.< Never mind, at least I can get some remarks at the testimonial in the end of the programme! Met lots of new friends, and there are a few international students in my class - from Singapore, Taiwan, and Korea! They are really amiable, and I'm glad that I'm in the same class with them for these one and a half years.

Since I'm studying A-Levels for 2 years programme, I would then have to repeat my third semester in my forth semester, and hopefully it would be a much relaxing programme for me as compared to other peers cause I would learn the A2 Level syllabus twice! Well, for now everything seems to be okay, and the myth of Further Maths being tough is no longer a myth anymore! I have attended the class few days ago, and apparently it wasn't that easy! There are 2 FM teachers in my class in which one of them (Mr.Peter) is teaching Pure Maths, and the other one (Mr.Teh) is teaching Mechanics and Statistics. Despite both of them are overwhelmed with the sense of humours, eventually I still have to struggle with my Further Maths cause it wasn't an easy subject! So as to my peers who are taking Sociology, have fun with it too! xD I'm totally having fun with FM now! xD

Okay, here's my daily schedule for these 2 years, or at least, for this week:

6.00-6.30am            : Wake up from the bed.
7.00-7.30am            : Ride on a shuttle bus from Casa Subang to Taylor's.
8.00am-10.00am    : Class.
10.00am-10.55am  : Break.
11.00am-1.00pm    : Class.
1.00pm-1.55pm      : Lunch break.
2.00pm-3/4.00pm : Class. (except Friday, which the class ends at 1pm.)
3/4.30pm                : Ride on a shuttle bus in front of Taylor's back to Casa.
5.00pm-7.00pm     : Online/study/sleep/exercise/playing games
7.00pm-8.00pm     : Dinner time.
8.00pm-1.00am     : Online/study/playing games.
1/2.00am                : Sleeping time! xD

What you guys/girls think about my schedule? Pretty bored, isn't it? Well, this is life! Have to install more games for me to play! Oppss, oh yeah, Further Maths kill! Okay okay, going to study now! xD

Favourite Music! =)
