Hour after class

Nowadays, I’m feeling time is moving so fast, feels like abandoned by time. Road to study is wide open in front of me. Only 3 days left and after that, I will pronounce as Mahasitua. Haha, that’s what they call for me.

In today class, I’m not really interested anymore on Sept intake student, I don’t know why. Why I have to give an ultimatum to them? Are they sinned? Are they innocent? And why I’m always asking and never answer it myself. Hehee, I’m rather being a complicated minded man.

This is a story about a bunch of people who coming from the same group and territory. Yup, that’s right, they come from Terengganu, to be exact, and they come from Kemaman province. They brought here via special intake, very special because they are accept regardless of their qualification. Hurm… Most of them are academically paralyses.

Now, I’m became one of the instructors who take charge to nurture them, to motivate them and to give them a skill and knowledge. What will happen if a man or women don’t have a skill or knowledge, they’re will be slave, right? So, it’s a duty for me to avoid them from being a slave. 

Lastly, I know that’s NURTURING them takes time, sacrifice and hard work.

'Shallow-minded' champions

KUALA LUMPUR: Those who believe that learning English will make a person less Malay have been lambasted as "shallow minded".

The criticism from Universiti Teknologi Mara vice-chancellor Professor Datuk Seri Dr Ibrahim Abu Shah was aimed at those who had in the past voiced their opposition to public universities teaching more subjects in English.

Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka was among those who had said that such a move would cause Bahasa Malaysia to lose its status as the country’s official language.

"The Bahasa Malaysia is our mother tongue and our language; it does not mean that if we speak English we are less Malay," he told the New Straits Times.

Ibrahim said English was an important language in view of the globalisation taking place.

Last week, in the Dewan Rakyat, Member of Parliament for Kuala Krai Ismail Mohamed Said had asked Higher Education Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed for the current statistics on the university’s unemployed graduates

Mustapa had said that the university had only a small number of unemployed graduates compared with other public universities because it produced top graduates who were marketable and spoke good English.

UiTM, which was set up to provide higher education for Bumiputera students, currently has an enrolment of 90,000 students in its campuses nationwide.

Formerly known as the Mara Institute of Technology (ITM), UiTM is an affirmative action university which comes directly under the government.

"Besides English, we also encourage our students to learn a third language like Mandarin or Japanese," Ibrahim said.

He said the university produced about 30,000 graduates a year and they were trained to adapt to the job market.

"We only offer professional courses and most of these courses emphasise the need for English. For weak students who come from rural areas and do not have a good grasp of the language, we provide them with an intensive six-month course prior to their diploma and degree courses," he said.

Ibrahim said this was only applicable to students who did not get a credit for English in their Matriculation or Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examination.

"This method has worked well for students who do not have an English-speaking background," he said.

The university also encourages students to speak English by holding an English language month or week.

"During this period, if they are caught speaking in Malay, they would be fined," he said, adding that most lectures were also conducted in English.

Ibrahim said the use of English in lessons had been part of the university’s system since ITM’s inception in 1956.

"Our programmes are mostly based on American programmes and that is why most of our students speak American English," he added.

He said many UiTM graduates were holding top positions in the country as the university had emphasised on entrepreneurship skills as well.

Ibrahim said 80 per cent of the chief executive officers of plantation companies and 52 per cent of the total number of professional accountants in the country were UiTM graduates.

Father's Day Special

This Sunday, we’ll celebrate our Father’s Day. The day that we’re remember all kindness and sacrifices to raise us. But for me, Father and Mother is referring to only one person, she is Tuan Mariam Binti Mustafa. The one who raise me up since toddler until now.

I Love U Mum.

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

New air to breath

While I’m browsing the internet, suddenly appear my Boss from front door. It was my second big boss aka my KJ’s. Why she came here? With eagerness to see me.
I don’t know why until she asked me.” Nik, kenapa awak amik bidang lain. Knapa tak teruskan bidang asal”. Yupppp… That was the question.

And Why, why, why. Why I choose different course. Cause I’ve fed up, fed up with seniority, fed up with bureaucracy, and fed up with several people in the management office. They’re suck, prejudice and double standard. Now, I’m just ignoring people like that, hell with ‘em.

Why management science instead of computer engineering? It’s the opportunity that’s given to. The opportunity to further my study in computer engineering course have been decline by these people. All the time. So I choose other than that.

Many thing to say, but I don’t have time..
Need to go then.

Suddenly I'm realize who I am.

anak kecil main api
terbakar hatinya yang sepi
air mata darah bercampur keringat
bumi di pijak milik orang

nenek moyang kaya raya
tergadai seluruh harta benda
akibat sengketa diantara kita
cinta lenyap diarus zaman

indahnya bumi kita
warisan berkurun lamanya
hasil mengalir ke tangan yang lain
kitakan merintih sendiri

jangan buang waktu lagi
majulah raih semua mimpi
hapuskan sengketa teruskan usaha
kitakan gagah dinusantara

Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, "I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed." She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar , put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button.

She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the . She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the . She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the excursion and pulled a text book out from hiding under the . She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her bag.

Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night Solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her . Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed." "I'm on my way," she said. She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and the light was on. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside and radios, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.

About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular. "I'm going to bed." And he did...without another thought. Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?

Fuel Price Tsunami

Thanks for G for giving ‘rakyat’ fuel price tsunami, I'm the one who most affected with this. And I know, so many of us affected. Right then, the other price will also increase such as flour, milk, diapers, rice, transportation ticket, chicken and many more commodities.

Maybe we should change our lifestyle as show in the picture below.

4. Kerajaan memberi jaminan harga runcit petroleum tidak akan dinaikkan lagi pada TAHUN INI.

(Skrip sekarang dan akan datang)
1. Rakyat mestilah mengamalkan hidup jimat cermat.
2. Kita akan memastikan harga bahan api antara yg terendah dirantau ini berbanding Singapura dan Thailand.
3. Bila kita susah, kenalah sama-sama susah, bila masa senang, 'kita saling membantu'.
4. Penjimatan subsidi RM13.7 billion 'dipulangkan balik pada rakyat'.
5. Langkah ini adalah 'situasi menang-menang'.

All about friends

After clock in at eight in the morning, I was hurrying to my room. My student already waits for me to brainwashing them. Ahha.. After give a short lecture, I went to my PC and start browsing the web. I’ve got a new Friendster message from Bart, my schoolmate at SMSS.

From his Friendser blog, I’ve jump to another link, they’re all friend of mine when I was studying at SMSS. I saw their photo, I read their profile. They’re all happy and success in their life. With enjoy full look and they’re work well.

But how bout me, I was dump in the land where no one knows me. I only regard myself, help myself. But in this state, I can’t go far. I used to be a hero, to be a zero and now I’m the one who looking for my destiny and goals.

When I remembering past time that I’ve gone through. It’s really make me feel sadden. I wasn’t growing at that time. I wasn’t conscious what I want to be, what I want to find and what I really want. I really don’t know. I only pace what my heart tell, never used the brain to think. Now I’m realizing my self.

How to Remember New Words

Two steps will help you remember new words and add them to your college vocabulary: practicing and building. To become comfortable with the new word, practice using the word in your writing, in your speaking, and in your everyday thoughts. Thinking about new words helps you to remember them. Just memorizing lists of words is not very effective. In order for a word to really become a part of your vocabulary, you have to see it used or hear it used in several different ways over a period of time. When you come across a new word you should ask yourself, "Have I seen this word before, have I heard someone use this word before?" Sound the word out and pronounce it to yourself.

People with poor vocabularies tend to ignore words they don’t know. They just skip over them as if they do not exist. People with good vocabularies, however, are curious about words they do not know. They practice the strategies mentioned above of sounding the word out, asking themselves if they have heard it before and then thinking about the word. They may even use a dictionary to look the word up. It is also beneficial to build a personal vocabulary file that will help you keep up with the new words while you practice them. On an index card, write the word and its meaning, a sentence in which you use the word correctly, and variations of the word.

The following guidelines will help you remember new words:

  1. Practice writing the word and its definition often.

  2. Practice saying the word. Use the pronunciation key in your dictionary to learn the correct pronunciation.
  3. Try to learn the word and its meaning the first time you see it.
  4. Make vocabulary flip cards from index cards. Write the word on one side and the meaning on the other.
  5. Make up a sentence you can understand using the word correctly.
  6. Vary the word: try to make it plural, to change the tense, to add -ly.
  7. Practice the word in conversation, being sure to pronounce it correctly.
  8. Use the word in writing assignments as often as possible.
  9. Repeat the word many times in your mind.
  10. Study a few words each day for several days to firmly learn them. Don’t overload yourself with too long a word list.
  11. Notice the words used by teachers, public speakers, people on TV, etc. If they know these words, why don’t you?

Idle Brain.

Sometime this disease is attack me. So hard until make me feel negative, all about negative thing, negative mind. Alas, I have to wake up. Wake up and never ever weak again. Be strong to fight the unnatural and supernatural. Hehehh..

Actually, main thing that I hesitate to do is think about writing. Writing is about pushing your brain to find the ideas, word and theme. In short, writing is about think, think, think and think.

Situation became worst if my mind start boggling. I have the confusion between the need for education and the need of interest and desire. They keep pushing my brain until I feel sleepy and not doing anything. Hurmm.. Or just do a light reading.

By the way, nearly 5 month I’m not read any book. OMG, what happen to me? I hope and wish 22 Jun 2008 will change everything. Especially my mind set and my perspective of views. Better wait that date..
