A Little Holiday

Hello everyone,

Yes i know. i broke my promise to write more. i said one post a day right. i'm very sorry about that. since my final exam weeks last week i was still trying to give my head a break. i didn't post anything during the finals also. i'm very sorry about that. at first i thought i can write during the week. but 12 hours of straight studying is exhausting. like seriously exhausting. i think after Mathematical Methods in Physics exam, i can only find enough energy to just study. i couldn't find that extra energy to write anything.

Anyway, now i'm trying to make up for my mistakes of not writing. since it is my holiday right now, i will maybe use as many energy i can muster to write here. but i think the reason why i dont know what to write is probably i kinda figure out topic like 5 minutes before i write. so during this holiday i think i'm going to write stuff better. figuring out topics to write before hand. therefore here is a list of what i'm going to write during this holiday:

  • Games i play (I have some games i pick up that probably i would like to recommend playing.)
  • Movies i recommend
  • Science stuff (this need more preparation)
    • Dark Matter
    • Time travelling
    • quantum locking
    • mathematical or computer modelling
    • etc. (this is just a rough draft, if i found anything interesting i will write it here)
  • Sports commentary (i not much a jockey, but it is my blog so i would really like to give my 2 cents on soccer or any other sports. hehe)
  • Photography-i have left my camera for such a long time now. so i would really like to start again. maybe walk around KL find some subject to photograph. 
    • People
    • Architecture
    • flora and landscape
I guess that should be it for now. i catch you guy later. want to watch Li Na vs Cibulkova in Australian Open.

p/s: wow, i owe you guys and myself 20 posts. i will try to do it!!

Freaks. I forgot (5/1/2014)

Hello everyone,

Oh shit. I forgot to post something. I'm very sorry i cant say anything today. Just too busy studying for Mathematical Methods for Physics. It is a paper i'm really scared of. Anything can happen. Anyway, wish me luck for tomorrow. I'm trying to do my best.

Sleep Deprivation (4/1/2014)

Hello everybody,

4th post. Almost thought of skipping today because i went blank on what to write. i was roaming the internet for hours (just kidding, only 15 minutes). then i turn on youtube and i stumble upon this Head Squeeze video about sleep. I let you guys watch it first, very informative.

Now, i hope you guys already watch it. Why i got curious about this video is because its the finals right now here in UiTM Arau, Perlis Malaysia. Since it is a well documented that a lot of students really like to stay awake late at night to "study". i did it a long time ago back when i was studying in Canada. Therefore i will conclude right now that staying up late to study is BULLSHIT!!

Now here is why. As said in the video that sleep is important for everyone. it help body functions. injuries also heals faster during sleeping. without sleep, human are prone to make erratic decision and error in judgement (pretty the same thing yet i refuse to change it). Other effects of sleep deprivation are depression, memory problems, the weakening of immune system and increase in perception of pain (you'll feel pain easier). This facts are extracted from WebMD. click on it to know more. even worse sleep deprivation might stop muscle growth (no wonder i'm short). Lack of sleep even get to be a form of torture by certain individual and it was an effective move. 

Personally, I totally agree with what James May have to say. Sleep deprivation really stuttered my decision making. the worst i've gone without sleeping was 72 hours. i think it was around that much. i did it twice already my whole life and i've regretted ever done it. i stay awake by drinking coffee and energy drinks. mainly red bull. i thought that by staying awake i can be more productive in order to finish of assignments and lab reports. How wrong was i. after reading back things i wrote during the period of sleep deprived, it was like reading a report written by a 10 years old in the middle of Pahang National Forest. it was that bad. And also, i almost got hit by cars on my bike when i was sleep deprived. Conclusion, staying awake more than 24 hours or even 18 hours is not for me. 

So my advice to any youth, or adult if you want to listen, get your sleeps. it is always better to sleep and have a fresh mind than staying awake and thought that you were being productive. plus, lack of sleep might endanger your life or even worse life of others around you. therefore, go to sleep everybody. 

Good night and Sweet dream.

Feeling Down (3/1/2014)

Hello everybody,

3rd of the new year and the 3rd post for the year. doing great with schedule. Alhamdulillah. But unfortunately, i dont really in a mood to write right now. remember when i said i had a final today. yeah, it crushed me. it crushed me so hard i loss appetite to eat dinner. i literally don't know what to eat tonight and any food turn me off (not in a sexual way). i  even went to watch some cooking videos and still cant get any desire to eat. it SUCKS!!!

anyway, that will be all for today. sorry i cant be more informative today. i promise i'll be more informative tomorrow and maybe the day after. i need to blow off some steam by maybe watch some movies or something. i'm thinking The Dark Knight (favourite movie ever).

My favourite movie of all time. But i've never seen this poster before. it's cool.

Nasi Goreng Tomyam (2/1/2014)

Hello everybody. 
I almost forgot to write here today. It is only the 2nd day and i've already forget to write things here. But dont worry. Now i here and i want to write. 

Today, not many things happen to me that i can teach you guys. I'm in my finals week in UiTM Perlis, so not much running around learning new stuffs. So how about i talk about the things i need to learn for tomorrow. Wait, i forgot to say that tomorrow (3/1/2014) i have an exam. Nondestructive Test (NDT)

So NDT is a simple yet a complex course if i need to put it simply. As you might know, anything that got design and make need to be inspected. But the inspection need to be done nondestructively, because somebody going to get mad if the component were destroyed during inspections. Mainly, we need to learn about 5 main NDT techniques which are Liquid Penetrant inspection (LPI), Magnetic Particle inspection(MPI), Radiography, Eddy Current testing and Ultrasound. I dont want to go into details but i can put into one sentence summary on all the tests.

1) LPI- It uses the concept of capillary action of liquid where the penetrant dwells into surface cracks to show where cracks are. 

2) MPI- it uses the concept of magnetic fields, by using ferrous dust on a ferromagnetic material to check cracks by magnetizing the specimen. 

3) Radiography- to put it very simple, it is X-ray inspection. 

4)Eddy Current Testing- it uses the concept of induced magnetic field and induced electric field. (I want to say more but i'm limited to one sentence)

5) Ultrasonic Inspection - basically the things that doctor do to pregnant woman to check for fetus growth only being done to solid materials to check for cracks inside the specimen. 

So that should give you a general idea on what  my final exam tomorrow will be about. Honestly, it looks simple enough because it is just applied physics. But it is so general i'm afraid they might get into details on the concept of each testing which as big as physics can get. So anyway, wish me luck. Going to need it. 

P/s: I cook today, Tom Yam fried rice with crackers and fried chicken. Maybe tomorrow i can talk about food.

A Post A Day (1/1/2014)

Hi everybody,
It has been a long time since i write anything. But this year i want to make something crazy. I want to post something here daily. This will be my new diary. A place for me to pour everything in my heart. Talk about being gay right. But i think this might be good for me. I have thoughts and ideas that were left unattended. So maybe by writing daily i can probably let it all out.
For the first day of 2014, i thought i'll talk about my new year resolutions. Last year resolution did not go so well.
i) i did not get any 4.00 GPA last year on my two semester.
ii) i did not manage to lose weight till 60 kg last year dispite my cycling.
iii) i had a terrible a break up with my ex-girlfriend, Illani Ramlee
iv) i'm still a nobody in UiTM Perlis.
As you can see, i cant say that 2013 have been great for me. But my academic has been good for me, althought i believe i can do more. Maybe i was too happy with being in love, i feel like i can do anything when i set those goals. Damn, what a mistake. I wont make that same mistake.
Therefore, this year i think i might keep only one resolution from last year. Here are my new year resolutions:
i) I want to keep my dream to get a 4.0 GPA. I know i can do it. And i believe i can do it. Pray for me. I can handle physics.
ii) I want to be better.
Haha. Such original idea right. "Be better" only. Like u never heard that one before right. But i'm serious. I dont want to put to much pressure on my shoulder by putting too many resolutions. So i will only want to get a 4 flat. That's all. I know i can do many more things but this one is the only thing i care about. Being the best boyfreind and all that means nothing to me. But showing i can hit a 4.0, i can show the world i'm not an idiot.
That's all for now. I'll get back to you guys again tomorrow.
