New Year Resolutions! =)

Hello people what's up! It's been a few days of chilling at the beach, enjoying the sea breeze like nobody else's business, in Kuala Terengganu! After 9 hours of travelling on the road, wooohooo finally I'm back at home! =p

The infamous year 2012 is coming tomorrow! Yes it's tomorrow! Are you ready for it, to face the year full with devastating myths that the world is coming to an end, pushing human to the brick of extinction? The upcoming of the year 2012 tomorrow also literally means that today is the last day of 2011! What will you be doing on the last day of 2011, so that it could end the year perfectly, memorably? For me, I will probably just stay at home although I wish to go out somewhere and join the mass to count down, welcoming new year! =) Who says you can't stay at home and count down at home, with your dearest family? =) 

New year resolutions, something seems to be outcast to me, suddenly struck me recently. I thought I should make a list of new year resolutions, to enrich my life even more, to live my life to the fullest. What seems to be alien to me suddenly inspired me, and I was so determined to make a list of new year resolutions. I never made a list of new year resolutions all this while, mainly due to the perception that it would be futile if we forget about it on the second month of the year (which a lot of us do, frankly). 

So here I will make a list of new year resolutions, as well as the ways that I will implement shortly after this, to ensure that those new year resolutions will stick with me throughout the year! My new year resolutions are as below: 

1) Reduce my bodyweight for at least 10kg before my final exam on May/June 2012 
This is definitely not impossible as I've started my mission to achieving this goal! Here is the plan: Eat a few slices of bread, eggs and low fat milk as breakfast; rice (fist size, preferably brown rice) and steam chicken breast (or steam whatever protein source as substitution, take off the skins and fats surrounding the meat), with vegetables and fruits as lunch; fruits as dinner (eggs, milk and a few slices of bread/oat as dinner for post workout at gym). No sweet drinks, no curry, no noodles or kuey teow (mihun is allowed though), no fried stuffs. Eat more vegetables and fruits, and drink water more frequently! =) Wish me luck! 

2) Study for knowledge sake 
All this while, I always study last minute (or at least 2 months before any major exam), after procrastinating and enjoying my life before the realisation strike me that the exam is just around the corner. Most of the students always study just for the sake of exam, not knowledge sake (and that includes me). This is wrong and I shall amend it! I shall start studying for the sake of pursuing knowledge, in other word I should really understand the topics within the syllabus (not by rote learning), if possible outside the syllabus (although not necessary). Learn more beyond the scope of what would be asked in the exam, enables us to understand the topics better with wider scope of knowledge and interlinked information. 

3) Learn trading in the stock market 
It might sound absurd for me to learn trading at such a young age, and I know it is not exactly the right time for me to learn it. I've missed an opportunity for me to learn basics of technical analysis (taught by my previous FM2 lecturer, Mr. Teh), but with my interest abounds, I read about simple technical analysis on Investopedia and Stock Chart. Indeed it is a great site for trading novices like me (although I haven't started trading on real life), cause whenever I have time, I could read on my own, on whatever topics that catch my interest. For this one week holiday enjoying life at KT, I've read some topics about behavioral finance, technical analysis especially oscillators & indicators (MA, MACD, OBV, Stochastic, RSI etc) and some technical terms of finance (such as bond, yield, option, hedge, futures, derivatives etc).

I've been following trading blogs especially my lecturer's one as he consistently update his blog daily. I know by reading alone wouldn't really help me in trading, but that would at least introduce me to the fundamentals of the method. Without any losing experience, nobody will earn money even the geniuses. The first cruel fact about trading in the market is everyone will lose money. Those who do not lose money (including those who win some money) are within the top 20% of the market. Hmm... just wait and see if I could learn something from my new Economics lecturer, Mr. Mohan (he has been trading in the stock market for 15 years now). I will probably learn more after my A2 next year! =) 

4) Travel to at least 5 foreign countries 
Since I would be flying to the UK next year (hopefully if everything goes well), I will grab the opportunity to travel to as many countries as possible, mainly European countries since UK is quite near to its neighbouring countries like France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland etc, if possible US and Canada too! =) 

5) Learn ice skating
After 19 years of life, I never actually try ice skating before! It seems to be so fun although with all those butt kissing the floor scenes for the novices (of course including me)! 

6) Read at least 10 books 
I've bought a number of books from a book fair a few months back at KLCC, and now I'm only reading Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely. Yes I still haven't finished reading it after so many months. Only manage to finish about 2/3 of the book. Would try to finish up Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan by Nassim N. Taleb, The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and some economic books by Tim Harford by the end of the year 2012. =)

7) Learn cooking before flying overseas 
I must learn how to cook before flying off to UK! Well at least to cook some healthy yet simple and tasty diet for myself! For now I only know how to fried stuffs (eggs, fish, chicken, vegetables etc) but I don't really know how to prepare complicated food, or 'quality' food. I don't want to fry everything up, I want something more healthy. Steam food always? That will be plain boring. Shall spice up my diet plan soon! Will check out some recipe book on the Internet soon! =)


So these are my 7 new year resolutions that I've set up for myself! What about the ways to implement it as I've mentioned in the beginning of the post?

1) Be more disciplined in my eating habits and diet 
I should take care of my own health although I'm still very young. It would be too late by the age of 50, to start eating healthy cause everything inside my body would have been literally polluted/damaged should I continue my prior eating habits. Nobody will take care of you except yourself. Love yourself before loving other people.

2) Always bring at least one worth-reading book inside the bag 
Have a book with you always inside your bag would evoke you to read it during leisure time, or while you're waiting for any public transport in Malaysia (since it's quite famous for its inefficiency and time consuming). Of course the book should be book that can provoke more constructive thoughts while reading. By so doing, I will be able to finish at least 5 books by the end of the year, since I can read while travel from Casa to college or vice versa.

3) Stop playing Facebook games (or reduce the time on it) 
Facebook games are in fact very time consuming and not beneficial. I know this would take extremely great self-discipline for me to completely stop playing Facebook games, but this would be a gradual change. Slowly reduce the time to play Facebook games (I'm currently playing Maple Story Adventure), which will lead to complete halt of playing it in the end of the year. Time is precious, and should be used to the fullest for the sake of knowledge pursuit and broadening social network.


There you go, 3 ways to ensure myself sticking to my new year resolutions!

By the way, I went to Kinokuniya at KLCC today with my relatives coming all the way from Penang. I was searching for some books at Finance and Investment section, and 2 books caught my attention so I bought it. I Love Stock (by Pauline Yong) and The Upside of Irrationality (by Dan Ariely). I Love Stocks is the first book I bought related to trading, and The Upside of Irrationality is the book that would be next reading material upon finishing Predictably Irrational (also by the same author), soon! =)

Tonight my family is having barbeque as dinner, with my relatives coming from Penang! Wooohooo! Time to join them for fun! =p Ciao~

Happy 2012 New Year, everyone! =)

Merry Christmas people! =)

Merry Christmas everyone!!! 

I know!!! It's quite late for me to update my blog regarding Christmas! Today is Boxing Day anyway! Before posting some happy posts, let us bow down our head a few seconds to mourn for those who had been sacrificed exactly 7 years ago, due to the Great Tsunami that hit most of the seaside countries in South East Asia. I was just a chubby (I am, still) innocent boy back then, came back from a trip to Thailand a week before the disaster. I couldn't really comprehend everything that every adult was feeling back then. Sadness covered the whole atmosphere and broke through the peace and joy of Christmas Day.

Now, 7 years has passed and it's Christmas Day, again! =) Christmas is not all about Santa Claus; I think the affection of people for Santa during Christmas is overrated. Christmas Day wouldn't be meaningful without Jesus Christ, our Savior. It's the birthday of Jesus, celebrated primarily to appreciate the salvation Jesus has given all of us, to link us the sinners, back to the Holy God. Based on the concept of Trinity (God, Jesus and Holy Spirit as One Entity), Jesus is God in human form. So to be able to reconnect the relationship between sinners and God, God Himself has to send his only Son to Earth and bear the sins for us by dying nailed on the cross, a traditional cruel Roman way of killing the criminals of highest level.

Right, enough of spiritual theory! This year's Christmas, I didn't go to any church for Sunday service. I was planning to go to Acts Church for Christmas service, but I've decided to join the family trip to Kuala Terengganu (KT). It was such a rare opportunity that I could find, to spend time with family since most of the time we are separated. Mom always work in the office during weekdays till 10pm when she reaches home; Dad has been working outstation in KT for 3 months; I stay in Casa Subang during weekdays to attend classes or simply go to gym. I prayed to God, and somehow I had a feeling that I should join this family trip, rather than go for Christmas service at church.

So, here I am, in Kuala Terengganu! I came here since Friday morning, with quite a high expectation that I would enjoy tremendously from the trip. One of the the trips that I was anticipating the most was the trip to Kenyir Lake, the largest artificial lake in the world. I've never been to Kenyir Lake, so I was definitely looking forward to it. As for KT, it's like a small town in the middle of a bunch of Malay kampung surrounding it. I think it's even smaller than Kuantan. The majority of population in KT are Malays, as expected. Not much Christmas atmosphere in KT as most of them are Muslim. No Christmas trees, no decorations, no ornaments, no celebration. Just a typical holiday for people in KT.

Despite the dull atmosphere around in KT, I definitely enjoyed myself with my family. My sister have just finished her SPM, so she's here too! =) I think the most important thing during Christmas day is not the Christmas tree, not Santa Claus, not decorations, not ornaments, not Christmas light bulbs; but rather, the relationship between family members, remained peaceful and united. We shall take this opportunity to consolidate the bond with family members, and forgive each other for whatever thing that they might have offended you. I've chose to follow my family to Terengganu (although I realised that Kuala Terengganu is such a boring place), but I've learnt a virtue that I should appreciate my family, that we should stay strong together as a family. Nothing is more important than your family in the end of the day. The sooner you realised this, the sooner you would start to appreciate (if you had not) every effort your family member has done for you thus far.

Impending Christmas! =)

Hello people, I'm back! Sorry for a week of hiatus cause I just didn't feel like writing anything. Oh hey! It's Christmas, in less than 7 days! =) Firstly before that, I've mixed feelings within me, came to know lots of news happening around the world. Kim Jong-Il is dead. I don't know what to feel, whether to be happy or sad. Everyone around the world was celebrating, cheering happily; but back to the country where the nation has lost her Great Leader, everyone was weeping hysterically. Check this out if you haven't.

North Koreans appeared to be sad, whether for demonstration purposes to foreigners or fear of being killed by the ruling authorities should they didn't appear that way. Personally I was extremely disturbed after watching this video. I understand they are living under the ruling of the purest communist country in the world. None of them could escape from the terrorising family of Kim Il Sung (the creator of North Korea), otherwise might face the risk of being shot to death. There were stories told that some of their citizens have their families living in South Korea and they never got to meet them again. 

Those are typical stories. Some even tried to escape from the border of North Korea, trying to slip through into South Korea's territory for the sake of freedom. Freedom, that's what most of the North Koreans are dreaming for. The death of Kim Jung-Il does not mark the fall of North Korea, but just a change of the Great Leaders, exactly what happened in 1994 when Kim Il Sung died. Kim Jung-Un will take over and direct another new chapter of North Koreans' life. What will happen? Just wait and see. Hope that Kim Jung-Un would be nice and North Koreans' life shall improve. This has definitely taught us something, something worth while for us to reflect to. Be grateful of what you have, people! You have freedom, that's what North Koreans are dying to enjoy it. (although not to abuse that freedom) 

Anyway, it's Christmas soon!!! So these few days I indulged myself in Christmas songs. Having volunteered myself in Christmas carolling in college last Saturday in conjunction of Open Day, I knew more Christmas songs and started to sing along! =p Here are a few that you will definitely enjoy! =)

Excellent Advices to be Pondered Upon! =)

Yesterday I've bumped into this article and here I will extract some interesting yet thought provoking ideas that everyone should start practising, including me! This has given me a new insights and definitely helped me to be a better person! =)

1) Stop spending time with the wrong people. 
Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you.  You shouldn't have to fight for a spot.  Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth.  

2) Stop running from your problems. 
The whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time.  This is what ultimately moulds us into the person we become. 

3) Stop trying to be someone you are not. 
One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

4) Stop being scared to make a mistake. 
Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing.  

5) Stop trying to buy happiness. 
Many of the things we desire are expensive.  But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.

6) Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness. 
If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either.  You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else.

7) Stop being idle. 
Don’t think too much or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place.  Evaluate situations and take decisive action.  Making progress involves risk. 

8) Stop thinking you’re not ready. 
Most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

9) Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons. 
Relationships must be chosen wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company.  There’s no need to rush.  If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely. 

10) Stop trying to compete against everyone else. 
Don’t worry about what others doing better than you.  Concentrate on beating your own records every day.  Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.

11) Stop being jealous of others. 
Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own. 

12) Stop holding grudges.
Don’t live your life with hate in your heart.  You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate.  Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.”  It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.”  Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself!  And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too.  If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time. 

13) Stop letting others bring you down to their level. 
Refuse to lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs.

14) Stop doing the same things over and over without taking a break. 
The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.  Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.

15) Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments.
Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.  The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.

16) Stop trying to make things perfect.
The real world doesn't reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done.  

17) Stop following the path of least resistance. 
Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Don’t take the easy way out.  Do something extraordinary.

18) Stop blaming others for your troubles.
The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life.  

19) Stop trying to be everything to everyone. 
Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out.  But making one person smile CAN change the world.  Maybe not the whole world, but their world.  So narrow your focus.

20) Stop worrying so much. 
Worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its joy.  One way to check if something is worth mulling over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter in one year’s time?  Three years?  Five years?”  If not, then it’s not worth worrying about.

21) Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen.
Focus on what you do want to happen.  Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story.  If you awake every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.

22) Stop being ungrateful. 
No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.

23) Stop trying to hold onto the past. 
You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.

Pride! O_O

Yesterday night, when I was driving back home (Myvi) from Casa (near Puncak Jalil/Bandar Kinrara), a stupid reckless driver drove his Honda City so fast and followed my car so closely, driving impatiently. The driver kept changing lane just to cut all the cars in front of him. But what is that related to me? His stupid behaviour provoked me and made me frustrated. As the result, I tail-gated him (after he drove pass me) all the way, until my mom stopped me, and of course followed up by her nagging. Sorry mom, for putting your life at risk. I just realised how stupid and selfish I was, just to give the driver a taste of his action.

Why did I do that? One thing is, I hate it when some stupid drivers tailgating me. I just couldn't bear with their stupid action, of putting every road user's life at risk! The probability of crashing into some objects when he's tailgating others or driving recklessly on local streets is definitely very much higher than ordinary drivers. Others might have emergency brake and he couldn't stop his car on time, and collide into them. Accident. 

I used to drive so recklessly, but I've changed. I don't see the point of driving so fast, just to reach the destination faster by a few minutes, or worst, never reached at all. I was tailgating the reckless driver, and at the same time flashing spotlight on him to provoke him, just the way he did it to me. Come to think of it, it's futile. I shouldn't have done that cause that will only serve his purpose of driving recklessly - to find another driver to race with him. Irrational? Yes. I was being so irrational at that time. 

When it comes to driving,  I can be so illogical, irrational. What actually initiated my intention of tailgating the reckless driver (of course me myself had to drive recklessly to tailgate a reckless driver)? Sad to say, pride. Everything comes back to one deadly sin, pride. I realised that pride within myself is quite extreme. I don't like to lose to others or kiasu (who isn't?), from all aspects. A driver shows his/her pride by driving recklessly, to show that as if he/she was the best. An extreme level of pride will definitely bad for the person, but a mild level of pride is always good (talking of economics). =p 

Without mild level of pride, there will be no improvement. There will be no competitiveness. What can you (and I) do if your sense of pride surge to the extreme level, due to various circumstances? Pride can just haunt you any time, anywhere. Even in a simple conversation with friend, might initiate pride within yourself. One thing that you can do when that (pride) happened to you is, always be humble, all the time! Put God (or any deity that you're attached to) first, and acknowledge that you're not the best. 

When other people are being prideful, there's nothing you can do other than giving them advices. What I've learnt from the experience above is that, do not follow what they're doing! It's good to have certain level of pride but not to the extreme spectrum. Of course the pride I'm referring here is only individual's pride, not other types of pride. Get it right! =) 

Till then, ciao~ 

2 Weeks Experiences in The New Class! =)

Listening to: The more I seek You - Kari Jobe

It's been two weeks since I joined the new class! Most, if not all, of my new classmates are quite friendly to me, gratefully! Thank God for that! Within the first few days I've recognised and remembered most of my classmates' names! =p Okay to be frank, I was trying to memorise. That's why I could remember their names fast, and blend into their group easily? =) How? Facebook does the trick! Adding someone into your friend list in Facebook will definitely improve your ability to remember names. Well it works for me, at least! =p

Okay why am I keep writing posts about PE1? I don't know, just want to share my thoughts with everyone, how I spend my time in the new class and so on. During break time I tend to hang out with a group of new friends, and a large portion of them were from Catholic High School, PJ. Haha I was supposed to go there, but I didn't. My younger sister did, anyway. Most of them tend to play ping pong (at Wisma Subang) after eating lunch (during break time), and I join them every time they go! I'm interested in playing ping pong too, cause my dad is quite good at it! But he never taught me. I found my ping pong skills improved over these two weeks. =p That's quite awesome! haha! =)

Jojo Pan Mee, char siew (roasted pork) fried rice, famous pork noodle, and Subway (on Friday cause there is a breakfast set at our break time) are among the regular food they have every week. Crap, until now I haven't tried the pork noodle cause usually we need to wait very long (at least 40 mins) for the order to come. 18 months in Taylor's and I haven't tried eating pork noodle even once! So much to be a Taylor-ian. Epic fail. =/

How are the lecturers doing? My first post about the new class depicted quite a lot on my new lecturers. After 2 weeks, here's the real one! My classmates are not really satisfied with my FM 2 lecturer (Ms.Wong) and Physics lecturer (Mr.Subra). Not to offend anyone, but I don't know, my friends just don't really like their approaches of teaching? I should first clarify about Mr.Subra. Indubitably he's good, especially at doing notes. I think his notes are quite detailed and awesome. He even has all this notes handwritten, good job for that! =) But I think he's not really attractive at teaching. His way of teaching is mundane, boring. He's not 'sharp' enough at answering questions asked by students? That's what they said. Hmm.

Ms.Wong? I don't know, but my friends kept complaining about her. One of my classmates said she's okay in teaching mechanics, but when it comes to statistics, fail. She asked students to look at examples at the textbook (A Concise Course in A-Level Statistics by J.Crawshaw and J.Chambers), and explained from there. But unfortunately the students disliked this way of approach. They said they could even read from the textbook at home, if that's the case. How Mr.Teh (my previous FM2 lecturer) taught me was really awesome! He entered the class (without textbook and only one marker pen? *gasp* ) and started to teach, by writing formulae on the board and explaining the concepts to students.

I think this way is more effective cause students had to listen attentively to his teachings, otherwise will not going to understand what he said. He then selected a few exercises from the textbook and asked students to attempt it. Sometimes he asked students to take questions from past year papers and attempt it. See? Isn't it more effective than Ms.Wong's way of teaching?  I think so. For me, I can understand what Ms.Wong was trying to teach cause I have learnt those in Mr.Teh's class. But how if it's new to the students (my classmates)? I don't think I could understand too, if I were in their shoes. =( Hmm, for other lecturers, they are all quite awesome and doing great! =) Keep it up!

That's all for now! Ciao~ =)

Interesting videos! =)

I've bumped into these two interesting videos in Facebook, which I'm going to share with you all! I bet some of you have already watched one or two of these videos, but here I am going to share my thoughts with you! =)

First video is quite hilarious yet partially (or absolutely) true? 

okay I believe lots of you have watched this video cause it's spreading insidiously like wild fire or epidemic in Facebook! So many of my friends shared this and me too couldn't help but to share! =p The script was quite funny overall, from Batman to Columbus! This is what the guy in the video ranted about being in a relationship with a girl, and he really sounded so experienced. I couldn't help it but in the end of the video I laughed so loud and even my housemates were looking at me, as if I were crazy! =p 

But, are they (what he said throughout this short video) true, partially or entirely? I will say partially, because in my opinion all girls are different. In the video he stereotyped all the girls to be the same, and ironically a lot of things he mentioned fit what we (guys) always hear in the real life! Firstly, in the video, it was mentioned that a guy has to worry about his girlfriend's happiness all the time once they are in a relationship. I think it might be true to a certain extent, but a guy shouldn't care about his girlfriend's happiness ALL the time! Yes you love her, and want her to be happy! But a mature girl wouldn't create too much demands just to make herself happy while making her boyfriend not happy? The result if this rule is broken, the video above depicts it very well. 

Secondly, shopping. Trust me, guys do not like shopping so much! And even if they 'do', they do it for the sake of their loved one. Of course their loved one could be mother, sisters, girlfriend and so on. okay I'm stereotyping all guys here, but GENERALLY most guys wouldn't spend hours and hours strolling around the mall for nothing. Guys are very systematic and they only go shopping to buy things they need, and not what they don't really need at that time. Window shopping might seem interesting for girls, but definitely not for guys! They rather play video games at home or do whatever they like (hobbies, interests, etc). So girls, try not to drag your boyfriend to the mall! But if he really do want to accompany you, let him be! This proves that he loves you more than you do! Appreciate him more! =) 

Thirdly, about texting messages and phone call! I don't have much comments on it, but it seems typical for couples to text each other frequently in a day. In my opinion, text each other 3 to 4 rounds is more than enough actually! I've learnt from my mistake that I made a year ago, and now I've became more experienced. Do not text a girl too much even if you really miss her or want to chat with her. This will only make you look stupidly desperate and you might even scare her off. Text her once a day, and if she didn't reply, don't text her for a few days. If she doesn't bother to text you after more than 2 weeks, don't bother to continue your pursuit! There's a very high probability that she's not interested in you. Alright this is the process of chasing over the girl you like. But what happen if you're in a relationship? Lots of girls that I know prefer talk to each other face-to-face (if not, talk to each other on phone just to listen to each other's voice, or Skype!), instead of texting via phone or chatting via any mean (Facebook, MSN etc). So be smart, guys! =) 

Oh by the way, I like this quote from the video. Behind every successful man, there's a woman. True! But behind every unsuccessful man, there's also a woman! Anyone can tell the number of unsuccessful man is much much higher than the number of successful man in the world! =p So funny yet thought provoking! Sounds true, but I think this was just part of his rants! He was blaming the girls... haha foreveralone. =p Last one, every discussion with a girl is called an argument! =O *gasp* Warning: Do not argue with a girl! you will never win (if you're a guy LOL!) I've no comment on this, but I think you (guys) should fight for your right and freedom to speak out your thoughts if you really think yours is the absolute truth. To be in a relationship (or marriage) is not easy, but this one word is very powerful and it could possibly hold your relationship firmly to the end, TOLERANCE! Think about it. =) 

Enough of the first video, gosh I've written so many thoughts on it! =p Now it's the second one, a thought provoking yet extremely touching story. Too bad if you couldn't understand Mandarin. 

But I will give a brief story on what the video is all about. This video is about a lovely father who loves his daughter so much, trying to leave something to his daughter when his life was ending, soon. Yet he didn't want his daughter to know about it, so that she could grow up more happily, optimistically and mentally stronger. The father used to play 'hide and seek' with his daughter and he said in the video, that he's going to hide from her for very very long period of time, this round. He asked his daughter not to search for him, and asked his daughter to look after mom, to make sure that mom doesn't cry frequently (Otherwise they will be considered as losers). So he asked his daughter to make sure mom lives happily always, by making her laugh (when she's sad thinking of dad) and proud. He said, her daughter can only ask her mom about where he has been hiding, after eating 10 birthday cakes. So there you go, the game started. The daughter grew up after 10 years, to be a cheerful girl. She finally knew that her dad is dead, but she was very very proud to have such a great dad, so great that his love miraculously transformed her to grow up as a mentally strong girl. When your life is going to end, what can you leave behind? 

I felt so touched and almost cried after watching this video. I don't know, I just feel the urge of sharing this video with everyone. What you can learn from this video is definitely a tremendous one. Appreciate your loved one when they are around. Life is fulled of obstacles and problems, true, but don't ever let those problems affect your relationship with your loved one. What you leave behind (when you are dead) to your loved one, will definitely influence their future lives. You love them so much, and want them to live happily even with your physical absence in the family. Love can melt everything, and a true love can exist even after your loved one passed away. Remember, when you're dead, you will present in their (loved one) memories, always! =') So don't be too sad if someone you love passed away recently. He/She will always live in your memory! Be happy always, and your loved one will definitely be happy too in the other spectrum of the world! =')

Updates for the past 5 days! =)

Wooohooo I'm back, finally! After 5 days of leaving my blog rotting on its own, here I am again! Haha just kidding for the rotting part. yeah I was quite busy these few days, and you know you actually need motivation to keep your blog updated? One post will normally cost me 1 hour of time, and that 1 hour could be used to do so many things. Well maybe not that many but still... time is GOLD! So, why am I still updating my blog then? cause I love my blog!!! okay and my readers too haha! =p

okay so what have I done for the past 5 days? I will lump everything together to this one post although with quite a different name. On Friday, I attended one of the cell activities called Homes by Acts Church. My assigned Homes is SJ10, and guess what, that's the most awesome place you can be in Friday night! Okay that's what everyone says haha! =p Last week was the final Homes for the year 2011 so we took that opportunity to celebrate upcoming Christmas! I am quite a shy boy (sad to say), and even to give a testimony requires a whole lots of guts from me! I had a great testimony to share that day, but I wasn't courageous enough (again? =/) to speak out! Oh my gosh, the time for testimony just passed on and it was time for announcement, followed up by Word sharing by one of the Homes leaders, Sister Katherine.

By that time Katherine was about to share and discuss the Word of God, I still haven't shared that testimony! =( Thanks to Samuel who was sitting beside me, he knew that I had something to share with everyone so he told Katherine about it! =O Gosh, everyone's attention was on ME! Now I had to share, and I somehow had the guts and the ability to share out everything! Praise the Lord for that! =) I was quite happy cause all this while I wasn't brave enough even to speak out. I always try to sit in one corner and indulge in my thoughts. Okay many times I don't even know what to think about, but I always have something to think about. Something random. Reflections on what I've read up, and what I've learnt so far. Reflections on all the decisions that I've made. Oh back to the story. Later we exchanged presents and I've got two chocolates (Hershey Kisses and Toblerone) as my Christmas present hurray! =)

On Saturday, I attended ReComers gathering at KLCC and unfortunately not many people could make it. Only me, Casper and Nikki Quah were there. Kamilia was there too but she went off cause she had other stuffs to do. We were then waiting for Jern Siong in front of Kinokuniya, and while waiting for him, I decided to take a look at Kinokuniya! Gosh, it was really great to see so many books that I'm sort of interested in there. Even books in risk management, technical analysis, technical indicators, etc are there! Too bad I couldn't buy any of them cause it was too expensive, costing around hundreds bucks each! =O Jern Siong couldn't make it in the end, so three of us went on to eat lunch at the food court and later watched Puss in Boots. Funny movie I will say, and I like the 'oooooooooooooooooooo' *covers mouth while looking around* LOL!!! Check this out, and the funny part is at 1:53 - 1:54! Wahahahaha! =p

On Sunday, I went shopping in Jusco with my family!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeee gosh I bought 7 clothes cause there were 50-70% discount during the happy hours! Awesome... until my mom said that would be our new clothes for Chinese New Year 2012! O.O But it's good enough! Now, it's time to slim down a bit! =p

Sunday night - After months of holidays, finally I'm back to study! I had a Further Maths 2 test today (Monday), on two chapters mainly on Sampling and Estimation, and Hypothesis Testing! I could choose not to sit for it and my new FM2 lecturer permitted me to do so. I don't know why, I just feel like I should sit for this test. Although it's been months since the last time I touched Statistics, but this will be a great opportunity to revise these 2 chapters! =)

This morning I was quite excited cause it's the D-day! Haha just kidding! Yeah cause it's the first test I'm taking in PE1 !!! From this test I noticed that many of my classmates are very hardworking and tend to take tests seriously! They even skipped the break time just to study for this test! It was 1pm and the test began. I can do most of the questions (just on time) and everything went well for me! Just hope that I didn't press the calculator keys wrongly haha! =p

That's all for now! I shall update more frequently! Ciao~ =)

Favourite Music! =)
