It's time for me to write in English, because I find my English is rusting nowadays. I had trouble writing a sentence to comment in a friend's blog, damn! This could be due to too much exposure to Mandarin as I have just finished watching "Beyond the Realm of Conscience" A.K.A. 宫心计 from TVB. Fascinated by the unique ancient palace language, my friends and I have been using them in our conversation in Facebook, crazy huh?
Today is not my day; I woke up at 10am and felt that I am in a low-energy state. After taking my breakfast as usual, i start to have stomach discomfort and I fell sick then. I spent my whole evening sleeping. God, the feeling sucks! I could not do anything because I feel very tired and my mind made sleeping its priority, one day has been wasted for nothing. I was supposed to workout my deltoids today. My workout has to be postponed.
Nevertheless, falling sick today makes me feel grateful, well, even though I am sick. At least, I could really rest well at home. If I were to fall sick in Bangi, I am doomed. I will be burdened by the daily chores even when I am sick. I am lucky to fall sick here. Well, that's the advantage of being at home: you will not be forsaken.^^

I am left with the last assignment and this does not even excite me to quickly finish it in order to clear my to-do-list. Biometry and experimental design is not of my subject of interest, so I admit that my bad attitude would block that from my mind. But, the struggle is that, even if I dislike the subject, I still have to sit for the exam, cause there is no way out; it's a compulsory subject for a Biochemistry student. This is not my semester as many weird subjects are on the list: C programming ( Gosh, I totally hate this! I am so not a fan of programming and damn, I have to take this, it's compulsory too!), Recombinant DNA Technology and Biometry and Experimental Design. Flipping through all these notes makes me feel devastated as I don't know most of the contents, especially C programming. I need a very much longer time to really get to know what are all these subjects about and time is running out, but laziness persists in me. I must quickly switch into study mode! *click*
Today is the last session of the TDR lab, better known as the Recombinant DNA Technology practical. Today the session ends 2 hours earlier as we are allowed to visit the Malaysian Genomic Institute(MGI). The visit is quite helpful in assisting me to have an insight of what I really want in future. MGI carries out many researches, namely protein expression, microarray, DNA sequencing and so on. DNA sequencing is totally out of the list as I hate to work with computers from morning to evening. Protein expression, maybe, as it involves microbes. Microarray, quite relevent to cancer research, but I just don't know why am I not interested. Suddenly, I am starting to feel that I am not so into lab work... Previously, I thought I would prefer lab work rather than everything else as I have had bad experiences working with humans (customers), who keeps on bothering me with many unnecessary problems and I though that lab work would bring it to the minimum level. However, currently I have to admit that my thoughts are starting to shake as I find myself getting a little tired for being in the lab for long hours. Imagine in future, it's going to be from monday to friday(or even saturday in private companies), and for how many years would it lasts? Gosh, I am sweating even when I am only thinking of the situation.
So, what's next? Why am I so fickle-minded and unpredictable? I am starting to worry as I only have 3 more semesters to really think about it before I come to another decision-making threshold, again...Think properly.

Why am i so lazy lately? I am craving for sleep, even after getting sufficient sleep. I grab every single chances of evening naps, and yet can't have enough of them. Further more, they are not really naps; they could last for 2 hours+ if my free time permits. ArrHHH, I am so lazy lately.
The weather is getting scorching hot lately, never improved eversince I am back from Penang after the Raya holidays, only gets worse day by day. This type of weather makes people feels dizzily tired, even when you are just sitting there, doing nothing but surfing the net. Is this the perfect explanation for my sluggishness?
The semester is ending soon. Time to start getting serious with my studies, though I am absolutely reluctant of that. Looking forward to going back to my little but fantastic island.

我当然不会忘记，小时候，您逼我吃饭的那很凶的样子。还有，您每逢新年都会做 Kuih Bangkit 来卖，而赚到的钱又会用来买衣服给我们。我不会忘记我五岁那年，您跌倒，跌得头破血流，满地都是血，而我不知所措，只好在神台前大哭大叫，求观音保佑，还好观音慈悲，让邻居路过，听到我的哭叫声，才会把您送到医院去。您进医院的次数还真多，怎么这样？每次都爱弄到大家焦急。还记得那次2005 年，医生说您不行了，赶去医院时看见您心跳每分钟一百八，那种辛苦的样子，看了真是让我当场崩溃大哭，还被同学看到。那时，我真的以为您会离开我们，那种即将失去而无法挽留的心情是言语无法形容的。奇迹似地，您又从获健康，出院了。那次以后，我好像渐渐就忘了要珍惜身边的人。总爱抱着“还有以后”的心态，我说我工作了，要买东西给您吃，可是却一拖再拖，就到我离开家，要去大学的那个时候。那时虽然您已经不太清醒了，我临走前还泪汪汪地跟您拍了张照，若没记错，好象是我们仅仅的一张合照。只可惜，那时，您或许都不知道为什么阿杨在哭，为什么要跟你拍照。那时还告诉自己假期回家时一定要买东西给您吃，可是，万万没想到，我都没机会了。为什么要那么早走呢？待久一些，不好吗？不想看我毕业吗？不想看我带女朋友回来给您看吗?不想要看到我工作的模样吗？怎么不留久一点呢？怎么不要我请您吃呢？

看着笔记簿的 To-do-list 上的功课慢慢地在增加，有一些tutorial及 assignment。实验又慢慢的全都开始了，从这个星期一开始，我一个礼拜要上四堂的实验。每次最快也需要两小时多的时间，再加上还有一天是九到五都在实验室里。做实验报告都做到手软了。。。

It was a very fun day. First, we had a warm-up session which involved some free dance, and I was like "oh my God, I'd tried to avoid dancing and now I have to dance?"... But turned out, I love it...They played some random musics and we have to move accordingly to the music, each of us are given a chance to lead the dance. Too bad I got a slow, traditional Chinese music >< So sweat...-.-"
After that, we played a game, sumthing like hide-and-seek, but not exactly the same. This is to test how fast could we react... luckily i made it to the last few before losing, hahah... Then, my favourite part is up - the catwalk session. We are asked to walk in a very confident way and to behave like a supermodel, and the judges were there to observe our level of confidence...
The real audition followed. The chi kek part was this...a 2-minute background music was played, and we have to cry within that period of time... I cant...hahah... I thought I could cus I am quite emotional, but I failed. I was amazed by the spontaneity of a few girls who cried rightaway when the music had just started to play! Now I totally believe that a professional actor/actress has the capability to cry spontaneously... Well, seeing is believing.
Finally, we were asked to form a group of 2 for the interview session. Because there are odd numbers of contestants, I was in a group of 3. We are being interviewed by 4 teachers, and 1 of them asked :" Are you willing to cut your hair or even ugly-fy yourself for a character?" and I answered smoothly a yes...And now, I am a bit worried...hahah... I answered this question a little too soon without further considerations... We are required to sing a song as this year's performance is a musical show, so we are tested and considered based on our singing. After the interview, we have to put on a short act for about 1 minute and the story was about a quarrel, a quarrel between a parent (mother/father) and a son/daughter. For my group, we did the story of a son and a daughter quarrelling with their mother... We came up with quite a different story because we have 3 members and luckily we were given enough time to present the story well and the judges understood.
I think I did okay in the audition. I have no experience in such performance and I hope I am given a chance to try this once in my life...*Praying for the best, result will be notified within the next week*

Hatchlings are kept in a big blue tank for a day before being released into the big blue sea. This helps to increase their survival rate in the cruel environment.
Baby turtles close up.
This is my first time of getting to see baby turtles. Too bad we are not allowed to touch them.
Coming back to hometown allows me to spend more time with my family. I accompanied my mother to the dragon boat practice; an activity ran by the Cancer Link centre. I knew dragon boat all the time but never really have the chance to participate in this water sport. I am a fan of water sports and this is my chance to give it a try. Despite of the hot sun in the evenings, I found myself fell in love with dragon boat rowing. It’s a strenuous exercise and a good form of cardio. Definitely asking for more, but too bad, the practice is only once a week, so I only went there for about 6 times. I am looking forward to the year-end holiday for more dragon boat rowing. Consequences of this sport is that I've become even darker, but never mind.

T-shirt and shoes are from my dearest mummy, others are from friends. The picture does not show my complete present collection, sorry about that. I received another wallet from my dad and another t-shirt from my uni friends. Thank you!

The 3-week job was good as i did learn quite a lot from it, despite it's a short period of time. seen many new things tat i've studied b4 but nv really see them, eg. HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography), GCMS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer), LCMS (Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometer), fluoroscent HPLC and many other machines used in the analysis of biological n chemical samples, tableting machine and dissolution machine. Too bad thr is no electron microscope in the lab, so i dun hav the chance to see tat. Too bad i could jus see the machines but din really use them before. i also witnessed how they carry out BE (bioequivalence) study in GH.
Holiday has started 3 weeks ago. but it seems to me tat it has jus begun as i was working in may n now tat i've stopped working, i truly feel the freedom n leisure of a typical holiday...well, one good thing is tat i can catch up my pace with the series i hav once watched n stopped watching. but i afraid tat i might run out of series to watch. anyone has any good series to suggest?

做生意就不同，当然，我们要实际，我不说《珠光宝气》里那些大集团的生意，我们说小型的。我本身对饮食很有兴趣，也对这方面有稍微的研究。我总觉得人们可以不买衣服，不去玩乐，不去看电影；但他们不能不吃。而且，我发现到，只要你卖的东西价钱大众化，就算经济不好，人们还是会光顾。不信吗？看看 Kim Gary 及 Oldtown。这两间连锁店已经是很好的例子了。我不管在槟城或吉隆坡，经济好坏，每次经过这两间店都看到来客如云。Kim Gary 还离谱到要排长龙。

Well, here's a thing about college. Everything has its pros and cons and the one thing I like about college is that you have more friends and it is near to my faculty, because it is inside the campus. Because I am staying in college, I get to know many people from different facs, and we even have like our own family there. It gives me the slight feeling of belonging, which I have been seeking ever since I am here. The time for me to walk from my college to my fac is only about 10 minutes, so this allows me to go back to my dorm to have a nap in the evenings after lectures. Haha, I know I am like a pig, just can't help it, sleep is important, okay...And also, the fees are kinda cheap over my college, in fact, the cheapest of all, the rate is RM2.50 per day! RM2.50 only!
The cons of staying in college are, well, way more than its pros. Below are the list:
1. You might get a sucky roommate. But luckily, I have a good one.
2. The food they sell in the cafe is awful and unhealthy. Trust me, my hair (not my pubic hair! =P) has been dropping like hell since last semester, and I finally realize that the culprit is ajinamoto!
3. Sharing toilets and bathrooms with 32 people is insane. Maybe because I am the type of fussy person, so I always feel ridiculous to share toilets n bathrooms with so many people. I enjoy shower very much and this sharing thing has stopped me from enjoying my shower because there is only 3 bathrooms, 1 has got no dorr, we are left with 2, not to mention one of the door is spoilt...it sucks.
4. Cold water kills me! Imagine, you have class at 8am and you are having cold water shower, it's fucking freezing cold! I always have flu in UKM because of this!
5. The bathrooms are always filled with water. The drain is always blocked, it makes the bathroom so damn messy. Ironically, a bathroom is a place for you to clean yourself, but the place itself is so filthy.
See! It's so fucking disgusting! eeee...
6. I can't cook in my dorm. There is no refrigerator, I cannot store meat, chicken, fish...fruits need to be eaten within 1 day! Even if I can cook using electrical cooker, I will have to go in and out of the room so oftenly that it disturbs my roommate, because the tap is outside.
7. The furnitures are limited and we cannot change its positions. Sometimes it is hard to arrange things because of its fixed position.
8. The lights are dimmed. I always feel that my room is very dark even with the lights on.
9. This is the worst of all: we have to move everything out from our room for every semester holiday! This is a shitty rule. I bring many things to make myself feel like I'm at home and to live a better life and this rule sucks! I was like crazy last semester, moving my things away, luckily my senior is kind enough to help me.
So, after analyzing the situation, I have decided to move out! Maybe the rental fees could be a little bit higher, but there are a lot of advantages. Bottom line, the 9 disadvantages about college I've mentioned above will not a problem anymore. The only problem is that I must have a mean of transport, that's all. So I planned to bring a bike here for the coming semester. I must try to ride again, because it has been ages since my last ride. LOL...
Hopefully, my parents would understand the reason I decide to move out and agree with me.
I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THE COMING SEMESTER!!! Yippy...

Last semester, i saw a female cat, pregnant, n i was thinking damn...more of these little bullies r on their attack...n poof, 5 kittens were given birth, luckily, 5 of them were collected n sent off, i dunno where they are now, but i dun think they were killed, cus MALAYS LOVE CATS in a very unreasonable way, if not over the edge sumtimes.
Anyway, today, i was surprised when i saw A kitten near the garbage bin of my block, just one...weird, cus they normally give birth to more than one. a very young kitten, its legs barely step frimly on the ground, crying miserably for food i supposed...

i went for the countdown in KL, wif my college-mates...we went to pavilion, though some of them would prefer to go to sungai wang, bcus we want to AVOID THE STUPID SNOW SPRAY...AGAIN! haha, cant believe tat im always trying my best to avoid the spray...so sick of it, i dun wan to hav the penang xmas countdown-all-over-again feeling in KL...
and now, it's rainbow-coloured!!!
we had dinner at sakae sushi...
we stayed overnite in KL, cus the crowd was terrible, n we were unable to go back right away...
i had a great time lastnite, so i guess it was a good ending for 2008...well, bye 2008. lots happened last yr. first, my mum was diagnosed wif cancer, then i left penang for the first time to come to UKM, then my grandma passed away.im sure those things would have changed my life. hopefully things will fall into place soon n my mum will recover completely n there will b no relapse for her cancer...i also hope tat i wil b able to maintain my effort for the coming semesters n jus do well in exam n be healthy. i also hope i could achieve the goals i hav set n were not achieved in last year. all the best to everyone! im sure 2009 will b a great year for all of us!

I am probably going through a transition state of life and i face black and white. Sometimes i think that i am independent and mature but other times i feel like i'm a kid. i'm not as courageous as people might have expected me to be, because i'm still learning on how to be a better man, and i'm not one yet. 成长中的“男孩-男人”，虽然自知年纪已不小了，但我发现我还处于少年及成人的边界。不够成熟，偶尔很任性，会无心地伤害身边的人。 我不是你想象地那么勇敢，因为我置身于人生的转折点，对未来有无比的期待，同时也感到渺茫与恐惧。我有我的雨天，也希望有人能够体谅我的雨天，因为我的心是伦敦。
