Life of a university student - Part IV

Life was really busy lately, no joke lorh. School has been started for 4 weeks and my blog is still in holiday mode! Omg!

So it is time to put something up. But before this, let us revise some of the old picture I put on last semester.
Yeap, is the wall-climbing activity where we get to go out have pork rice pork mee and escape from the call of their beloved god during the meal time. However after a holiday, we get this:

Shit lorh, of all the place they wish to throw their maintenance money, they threw it here. See the spiked wire on top, and the iron bar in the middle. It looks like nothing but a JAIL! My god... Next year seriously need to consider for staying outside campus!

Anyway, there is always a "leak hole" in any sort of things, look below:
I really salute the people who did this, to bring a saw and cut the iron bar, WaLao! Thus the way to the outside world is clear once again, thanks to some anonymous people who cut the iron bar!


Yes yes, the picture might be small, but take a closer look to the center of the picture. The hostel have new visitors walking around, other than cats; we have chickens as well. Extra dinner plate anyone?


For this one, the picture looks normal, it is me, behind the beach. However the story behind will makes you drop your jaw. Here's how the whole thing like:

6.00am : Wake up 10 minutes earlier, sit in a car and go to Port Dickson in the early Sunday morning.
9.00am : Reached PD, gave a quick speech in the 博营 (UPM Chinese Society Camp) about the debate club and its activities.

9.30am : Went down to the beach after the speech, took the photo.
9.45am : Sit back into the car going back to UPM.
11.30am : Reached UPM and continue my sleep.

My friend went "omgwtfbbq" when I told them the story, can't blame them anyway. So the story of the day would be: "There are many things that can be done in a single morning".


Well this is what I've been playing recently. A microprocessor with 32 buttons and 8 switches that makes up to be one of the early stage of computer back in 1978. So you might think that "Orh, playing with things that invented 30 years ago, sounds easy larh!" but you are totally WRONG! This course subject, microprocessor is killing everyone in the class, thanks to some very smart people and some very smart lecturer.

Sometimes I really can't understand why the people 30 years ago can think of something this crazy, and the people before them, that does things in just 0 and 1 logics that goes even more insane! Don't look down on that stupid board, with the proper software put in it, it could just be anything, from calculator to a computer.

Singapore - Part II

Well the part II is here, nothing much to mention anyway, just about debate, debate, and more debate. Our team successfully bring ourself into the top 4 of the competition. Sadly we lost in the semi-final to some ShangHai university.

Let the picture do the talking here:

<- Topic discussion, everyone looks so serious!

<- The good luck cake for championship!

Nothing better to do, so was making fun of some of the photos I had here...
This one is interesting, after a fierce debate about "Olympic is good for country development", the debaters (who came from Beijing and ShangHai) are requested to sing some song during the Q and A session. Very very touching.

Singapore - Part I

Yipes, went to Singapore for the past few days (28th June - 2nd Julai). Reason of going? Being a supporter and also for meeting my sister. Basically the whole trip is pretty simple, meeting sis, then busy for the debate competition all the way...

So I split the whole trip into 2 parts, the first part will be the day spent with sis and the another part will be talking about the competition alone. So let me start with NTU's hostel, the place where I spend for the nights in Singapore, a ideal study place where all of us dreamed for, thus resulting in showing how shit is Malaysia's local university.

Just take a look at the nice, new-looking, clean, comfortable:

<- Big cabinet
Big table->

Arghh! That really makes us go insane, the hostel is even better than my room! You see: clean toilet, hot water bath, wooden floor, big study table, green environment, free washing machine, amazing canteen food that varies from Japanese food to western food,and also the meeting room with air-con and sofa! Can't see what's so special? Well let's compare with local university's hostel where you get: dirty toilet, cold water bath, simen floor, small study table, noisy environment, 2 bucks for washing your cloths, sicken canteen food, and all the shitty animals that lives with you. Heaven and hell man!

Okay, enough with the environment. Meet up with sis on the second day of arrival, where we'll go for lunch, Starbucks, and some comic festival hosted around the corner. Well let the pictures do the talking here.

Left: The Starbucks Dark Mocha Frappuccino, freaking nice.

Right: Is the Ironman!!

Left: Star Wars fella on the move!
Right: Urh... Some big-head-shorties...

Is me and sis with the red shorties!

Went to to watch Wanted after the festival and some shopping, pretty nice show, you can expect matrix stuff in this show.In matrix you see Neo stop bullets, here you see people curve the bullets, people's mind are going insane lately...

And finally the dinner, went into some Chinese restaurant and enjoyed a really nice dinner, not forgetting the awesome 东波肉 and the duck.
