Finally, after entering UPM for the past 3 months, our good ol' hostel, K10 finally organized some event that worth participating. They called it "Pesta Tang Lun", which is 中秋节晚会 in Chinese.

Before the show is started, we have all these "historical corners" telling the grandma stories about how the mooncake festival came from. They've also set up these "mooncake corner" to teach the people to make mooncake. I didn't really tried to eat the mooncake they made, since I just recovered from the vomiting-hell-of-food-poison, I dare not to take in any unknown-source-food around. Oh yeah, not to forget the "lantern riddle corner" which is made from hanging the lantern with the riddle at the football goal gate, talking about fully utilizing the environment eh? The Digi people are also there asking people to "FuUuiYoOh!" here and there, not to say they are noisy but they did heat up the place quite well, lol.
Anyway after walking around and some chit chats, the long awaited VIPs have finally arrived and the party starts with the singing of the mamula moon (don't ask me what's that). The organizer prepared so many shows for the audience, not bad I should say, but the opening ceremony is just creepy, look at the picture, burning the word 中秋 there, don't you think it is like some sort of circus show? Then we have the other shows such as the Chinese drums, Chinese yo-yo, corrupted drama of HanYu-and-the-10-suns (the suns actually dancing TuoDiaoTuoDiao there, what the...) There's also this lucky draw there where the prize is a bunch of RedBull-look-alike-drinks that smells like strawberry and taste like cough medicine. The big prize for the lucky draw is a Sony Erricson phone sponsored by Digi, didn't bother much about it since I heard it worth around RM400 only (didn't get the prize say la, what dun bother much about it).

After all the shows we finally get to use the lantern we bought for RM1! We lights up the lantern, walks around the K10 jogging tracks and taking photos around, belows are the photos we took:

Of course, not forgetting the crew behind the big party, thank you guys for everything and every efforts you've put into this big success!

A show to be introduced

I've just finished watching a show called "an inconvenient truth, a global warning". The show is so nice that I’ve decided to write a little from it, there is so many things in my mind now after watching the show.

So, what’s the show about?
Basically the whole show is based on a fella called Al Gore (former vice president of U.S.) giving a talk about global warming. The talk itself is very interesting because it puts up facts and figures such as graphs, statistics, pictures, films, etc. It gives you are very clear view about what is global warming all about (sources, effects, and consequences).

Global warming? What’s so special?
Well let me ask you a question instead, how much you know about global warming? Yeah yeah, ice melting of north pole and south pole, global temperature goes up, sea water goes up, animals extinct, people dies, and so on...
We’re all well aware of all these problems, but may I ask you again, how much or how deeply you know about these problems? The answer from myself before watching the show: none. Let’s see, we are too familiar with these words until we are totally ignorance about it, but when graphs and facts are shown, you’ll know terrible consequences of our ignorance about global warming, I’m serious here.
When we watched the show “The day after tomorrow”, what did we think off? “Wow, such nice show”, “Hope these will not happen in my lifetime”, “Aiya, just a show larh!”. The fact here is: the show is not joking, it might will come true if nothing is to be done now! Wake up larh selfish peoples, please think of you next generation that going to stay on the mother earth when you go meet your ancestors!

Well, any feedbacks after the show?
Too many, can’t really list all of'em down, even I list down all of it I guess you won’t be reading it anyway, so I’ll just talk about one point that really worth to be considered by all my dear blog readers.
I’ve asked myself this question after watching the show: “Why I’m not aware of all these problems all the time? Is it due to my ignorance? Or is there any other reason?” At the instant, I thought of the source of knowledge, education. Let’s recall back is there any subject that we learn that are related to global warming? To be exact, there is, the accursed moral! And to be more exact, only a small piece of it touched the issue.
Now let’s think more deeply, all we’ve learn from moral is all those useless, meaningless, idiotic, stupid, junk, unrecyclable rubbish that are a total waste of human brain storage. What if, we could use the space to store something more significant and meaningful, facts and figures about global warming for example, let everyone are aware of the problem our mother earth are facing now days, would at least make the world a better place, at Malaysia for the least?
Finally, I seldom would give such a long feedback based on a single show I’ve watched, but this one is slightly different, here I wish anyone who reading this and haven’t watch the show would try to search for the show in the market/internet, let alone original or pirated *laugh*.
For a better tomorrow, nobody want a future like the “day after tomorrow”, don’t we?
