My, you, yourself




Hiding from the rain and snow
Trying to forget but I won't let go
Looking at a crowded street
Listening to my own heart beat

So many people all around the world
Tell me where do I find someone like you girl

(Chorus)
Take me to your heart take me to your soul
Give me your hand before I'm old
Show me what love is - haven't got a clue
Show me that wonders can be true

They say nothing lasts forever
We're only here today
Love is now or never
Bring me far away

Take me to your heart take me to your soul
Give me your hand and hold me
Show me what love is - be my guiding star
It's easy take me to your heart

Standing on a mountain high
Looking at the moon through a clear blue sky
I should go and see some friends
But they don't really comprehend

Don't need too much talking without saying anything
All I need is someone who makes me wanna sing
(Chorus)

*Take me to your heart - micheal learns to rock

Semalam yang hangat

Yesterday was a hot and hassle day for me. Sibuk try to figure out this one last bit of step to do and the one that's the most complicated. Anyhow, dah email jennifer and she's kind enough to sit with me next week to help solve my problem here. There'll be solution for this, i'm sure.

Aku actually tgh eager dan excited ngan stage yg aku berada skang. Berbeza ngan kat phase proposal development haritu, yg sumernya abstract..sangat conceptual..tak nampak sgt, yg ni dah ada data, fakta, the realiti. So syok nak tengok apa ada dalam data aku tu. Dan bila ada masalah yg macam ni pon, still aku excited nak mencari jalan penyelesaian dia. Like, apa turnabout yg aku buleh amik to solve this minor issue camtu. Ada lar down2 jugak bila tiap kali dok tak dapat jer calculation dia, tp kejap jer...pehtu up balik utk cuba lagi.

Tambah lagi excited sbb kali ni mmg betul2 data sendiri. Kalau sebelum ni, bila buat exercise, reading, training and all..sumer guna data orang lain..led by trainer, lecturer or paper author tu sendiri...so kita belajar dan ikut cara depa, and the decision made by them. Kali ni, this data is my own thing, so i'll use and utilise them according to what i prefer (yes of course following the rules and procedures) and make my own decision and judgment out of it. Aku rasa it's exciting. Contoh, kalau data tu tunjukkan 2 keputusan yg cantik, A &B..tp aku kena pilih 1, so up to my best judgment why i should choose A or B. Ada flexibility di situ. Apa2 pon, justification wajib cantek laa of kos.

Oklah..boring laks asik citer pasal kejer jer..hishh. owh btw, mmg temperature paneh oo smlm..aircond bilik tu dah tak terasa langsung, tp aku dah request kat opis air cooler kot2 depa ada...hopefully dapat aaa. Selesa sket. Harini pon diberitakan gonna be 40 degree gaks nih.

Take a look


I got this in my email and thought of sharing with you who hasnt seen it yet. Look at how her fingers dance away drawing out...simply mesmerizing! The storyline is presented below this clip, but try have a look and figure out first what she was drawing yea? If you cant, then read the storyline and watch again..



This video shows the winner of 2009s "Ukraines Got Talent", Kseniya Simonova,
24, drawing a series of pictures on an illuminated sand table showing how
ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War II. Her
talent, which admittedly is a strange one, is mesmeric to watch.

The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the audience to tears
and she won the top prize of about $75,000.

She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding hands on a bench
under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the happy scene is obliterated.

It is replaced by a womans face crying, but then a baby arrives and the woman
smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova throws the sand into chaos
from which a young womans face appears.

She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the image
turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier.

This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is looking out on
the monument from within a house.

In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man standing outside,
with his hands pressed against the glass, saying goodbye.

The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine , resulted in one in four of
the population being killed with eight to 11 million deaths out of a population
of 42 million.

Kseniya Simonova says: "I find it difficult enough to create art using paper and
pencils or paintbrushes, but using sand and fingers is beyond me. The art,
especially when the war is used as the subject matter, even brings some audience
members to tears. And theres surely no bigger compliment."

Question of the day:
How do you tell the difference between a fake and real feelings? Try answer that. And share it with me if you're generous enough.

Happy weekend all....have a good one!

Self-love

Semalam balik dari school singgah ker coles japs nak mencari serai...stok abes dah kat umah. Tengok2 mahal kemain $2 sebatang yg haluihh okkey! Kalau selalunyer tu rege dalam $1.50 or $1.70 tu pon aku dah consider mahai...ni nak pulak 2 dollar and halus laks tu. Actually mmg sokmo beli during weekends kat eastgarden tu..99 cents jer sebatang and besor gemok segor lagik..sini serai, kantan, ikan bilis, udang kering mmg mahai..aku tak penah guna kantan dalam laksa aku sejak dok oz nih...owhh lupa eks my sistah dearie tu ada pokok serai kat umah..dia penah offer, tp tak penah gi amik laks...

Neway, harini kepala dan badan masih ding dong bell gaks agiks...smlm togok orange juice bagai nak rak dah hehe..kang beli agik. I think must be the weather laa...hot and cold almost every other day here..gotto drink lots of plain water...hrmm...pesanan penaja ni aku dapat dan ingat sampai skang dari sorang kawan baik star aku dulu..katanya, 'kalau demam, minum ayor masak byk2 kasi drain out panas dalam badan tu'...dan mmg aku ingat & ikut sampai skang, walaupon member tu dah lost from my world already. Kadang2 pesan kawan baik lagi ingat dari pesan mak eks? heheh ehh tapi yg pesanan orange juice/oranges tu pesanan mak aku..pon aku ikut gaks sampai skang and dok war-warkan agik tuh hehehe

Somewhere along there gaks, tingat hari weken lepas masa nak parking keter kat tepi building umah..aku dok laa tak ingat belah mana satu yg free till friday, saturday and sunday. Amran ingat la of kos. So haritu dia kata kat aku..kalau aku la yg bawak keter sini nih, sure dah jenuh kena saman sbb ignorant sangat haha....aku laks kata, kalau aku bawak keter..i can assure u i take heed of where can park, where cannot, and will make sure tak kena saman lah..hehe nak meriak gaks tu haha..bukan apa, kita ni mmg boleh buat apa menda pon.. apa yg laki buley buat, pompuan zaman skang pon buley buat, percayalah...tapi ada kalanya kita nak merasa the feel to rely or lean on people gaks, the feel to have ppl direct kita gaks...nak merasa takyah amik berat sgt itu ini begitu begini..tul dak ladies? being independent is good, but sometimes showing u can be one in almost all occasions may not be that healthy too hehehe ntah apa2 kan...and i guess it might go the same to men as well for similar scenarios.

Anyway workwise, aku still strive on the analysis work. Tapi skang aku alternate dah ngan buat simple or scribble-writing gaks at the same time. Boring gaks la dok nengok data manjang.. berpinor mata dan kepala....lagipon nak kena start tune kepala for writing dah ni coz i've stopped since the last conference paper and that was ages ago if i can remember. Dah few days terjaga tengah malam dan langsung sambung buat2 kejer sket...since orang tak caya aku leh siapkan my very, very first and raw thesis draft by my specified date tu, so i'm gonna prove them that i can! We'll see yeahh..

Note to self:
..in other words, life needs to be played fair...whatever it is, love yourself first.

Detik-detik hati yang berkata

Semalam kat school badan mula rasa tak baper nak sedap...nak sakit2 badan, seram2 sejuk despite cuaca yg paneh smlm..macam nak demam jer...tp aku lawak la ngan apa yg hati aku berkata masa tu..

Detik hati 1:
"..sudahh lahh nak demam laks dah ker iskkkk...."

Detik hati 2:
*Lepas aku kata camtu, mata aku ni buley automatik gi tengok kalendar boleh?*
"..ehh ada apa2 due ker soon ni yg buleh nak demam laks ni.." *heheh*

Detik hati 3:
*tengok kalendar, kosong..meaning takdak apa soon to due yg buatkan aku macam nak terkejor-kejor*
"...owh takder apa..."

Detik hati 4:
"...hehehe to that extent eh..haha psiko betuiii adoiiii laaa"

Summer breeze talk

Tau tak yg harini dah 2 minggu into the new year, 2010 but i still mistakenly write the date with 09 in my to do list EACH SINGLE DAY iskk hehe...tiap pagi bila nak start listing down things to do tu, mestiiiiii buat 09 then owh tukar 10..ish ish, still living in the year that has passed, am i?

hrmm...a day before yesterday, talk on the phone with mom...aku dari sehari2 ker sehari nak tepon dia, nak tepon si farhana..tapi dok lupaaaaa manjang! takder apa, dia cuma tanya bila aku akan habis study nih. iskk cam about the same time jer ngan progress review aku hat smlm eks? hehehe ...then talk about this and that, aku kata aku tengah dok nak apply for study extension (for another 6 months, till somewhere first qtr of next yr). Dia cam bunyi tak baper siok hehe...tp aku assure her, it's not that i want to stay here..it's bcoz i needed the extra mile to finish up my work...(yeah, di samping kumpul2 duit sket, jenjalan plan sket agik..).

Sebenonyer intention aku nak apply setahun agik, coz mana tau depa takmo bagi setahun tp bg less than that, say 9 months ker 6 months jer lagi ker kan. kang apply 6 bulan, depa bagi 3 bulan jer...nayaaaa....hehehe..hrmm..however kelmarin tu aku cakap kat mak aku, nak apply 6 bulan jer agik opsss hehehe...alaa white lie jer...nak bagi sedap ati dia jer hehe...lagipon offer letter asal from this univ mmg 4 thn...cuma scholarship jaa yg dapat 3 thn...so rasa2nya by right cam boleh granted gaks kan extension setahun agik tu? Bukan laa aku nak prolong study nih, kalau buleh mmg nak cepat2 siap...cuma...thought of giving myself ample time to finish up, and do about anything else that's not yet done here...

Tengah nak mengarang ayat baekkk laa ni...

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Just realized

Is it really a surprise that i am able to complete my data collection in 6 weeks? Sounds like one to my ears from all the concern greetings that i've got from colleagues these days. I just realized that i've been pondering on this question for quite a while already. It really struck me, was it really a surprise to all? well..yea, compared to the rest (of about the same timeline, i think i'm bit of a laggard here)..hrmm...

But i cant help noticing how surprised they all were when they got to know that i'm done with my data collection with such speed and about to go into stage 2 of data analysis already. I gave almost identical answers to all who asked, 'blessings and miracles for me i suppose'. hrmm...Neway, they believed me when i said those words coz they say themselves, u should be lucky as there are many others who started earlier than u are still doing it...hrmm.....now that makes me think if there's anything wrong with my data? hrmm..makes me feel nervous about it but i see no major issues with it...there are minor issues, yes but that could be settled i guess (partly settled with fabe's and warat's help). Anyway, look forward to go into the 3rd stage of analysis in the pls, which is where the spotlights should be focused on.

Back to the miracles earlier, i have to admit..i believe in one. Well probably bcoz it has so many times happened to me, alhamdulillah that makes me believe in it...i mean, to me i read miracles as the unexpected rezeki that come my way yea..not something else. Well, it happens..trust me, it does...to everybody...it's just a matter of whether we realize it or not when it happens....



Note to self:
Now let's count on another surprise for them (and miracle yes! :P), that probably i'm able to complete my very first draft of thesis in....say...August this year? okay, okay..perhaps September :-)

Note to others:
If you want miracles to happen to you, say it. Say what u want to happen and say it out loud. And that's what i've come to believe too. The miracles will find you then...it may not come soon, but it will later on!

I wonder how..

The weather's been hostile over here these few days, very hot...it was reported to be around 40 degree or more especially in melbourne, some peeps over there even collapse due to the extreme heatwave. And many of my friends here are not feeling well themselves...have to drink lotsa water...cant afford to fall sick this time, there are so much to do with work.

Talking about work, it is progressing rather smoothly thus far alhamdulillah....well of course not without hiccups i would say...we get hiccups in almost every step of our way, yes?...i've just ironed out a complication with my analysis thingy that's been bothering me since few days back. Transfering data from spss to amos can be quite trying. For the simplest mistake that i make, it affects a bigger job and one lead to another. But thanks to fabe, he's been such a help and yes patiently at that.

I'll be having my annual review interview this coming thursday..hope all will go well, but i think it will as i dont think i have anything at the back of my mind to worry about..let's hope all are gonna be good anyway..

The school is still quiet..i mean, people starts coming in..came back from their hols..but my room only me and cheng left, in fact cheng just came in yesterday after spending 3 weeks in mainland china. Bernardo is not around, he's in canada now doing some courseworks and soonafter will spend some good quality time with his family back home in brazil. He went off on the new year the other day. Btw, my sv is coming in this week..either today or tomorrow cant remember....

Got a free ticket for a 3D movie at imax in darling harbour, thanks to noreen! The other day when i went to see avatar, i saw this 3D movie ad; the secrets of mummies...sounds interesting hrmm?

Alrightyyy...

Who would expect that...


.....the thing that binds back is this blitzing thingy?? yeapp this bejeweled blitz game, which is now my current craze..hehe

just started on this one, i was playing quietly....he saw, watched with great interest, be a busy body to play jugak and now we are challenging each other!!

he was wayyyyy down the stairs when i go to sleep last night...but not without his last note to me that said, 'i'll beat your score by tomorrow morning'..which i just shrugged it away...and yes he did!! cessss..i can almost see already his smug face when he wakes up afterwards hrmphh! (yes, he's an owl and i'm sunshine)

he's at nu. 7

and myself at nu. 11..(ok, ok aku lembap i know! :P)..slowly but surely so they say? (yea yea cakap2 org yg slow hehe)

anyways, a bruised heart is a bruised heart alright...so i still lost the laughter in me...i mean, real-letting-go and sincere ones..not quite there yet i guess..but things are going ok..

neway back to the blitzing game, i just cant imagine how those ppl scored up to 300K?? in 1 minute??? must be very smart with their tactical thinking, not so the speed i guess..

Melbourne trip : last day

Day 4: 28/12

Harini check out day and will be returning back to sydney. Malam semalam dah kemas2 ala kadar…mintak permission check out lewat sket harini. The hotel allow but, disebabkan ada few last minute places to go agik, we all check out awal gaks. Everything settled, kali ni kuor ngan backpack kat blakang memasing lah. Amran ngan bag beso dia tu..aku beg kecik jerrr hehehe…

Aku ker southern cross station utk simpan beg kat situ. Sib baik gaks masa nak ke essendon kat southern cross ni haritu terperasan locker tuk simpan beg. Idak kalu sblm tu, dari sydney agik jenuh mikior nih mana nak letak beg2 besar mentara nak jenjalan…goodyyy. Then beli locker rege baper eks 12 dollars rasanya for xl one.


Settled then gi beli ticket express bus ker airport utk petang kang. Sebelah jer ngan southern cross station tu. Ticket dia baper rege eks, 16 dollars rasa per person and will take about 20 minutes to the airport and busnyer ada dalam selang 10 minit. Cantekkk.

Lepas tu terus ker museum dulu…hehehe..ada org tu tokleh tinggai museum dia! Haha. Aku cakap kat dia.. alaa museum melbourne ngan museum sydney apaaaa la sangat bezanya…harus la sama jer kisah history nyer kannn..tp member tu nyer argument, museum perak ngan museum selangor tak sama haha…wokesss laa..gi jugok. Berdekatan ngan museum ni ada carlton garden, royal exhibition centre and imax 3D cinema. Ntah…aku rasa cantik aa this area. Kawasan luas, building cantik...Dalam city jugak, tp bukan dalam area hiruk pikuk of the streets and cars. Best laks area ni..as usual board the tram, kena jalan sket laa..sket jer dalam 5 minit hehe..masuk museum, tgk2 depa ada tgh promotion dinosaurs alive 3D…so masuk hat 3D ni skali. Ni 2nd time aku masuk tgk 3D movie.

day @ the museum

with the lion..owh btw, binatang2 ni betul punyer tau..depa awetkan..

Kuor jer dari nih, kitaorg ker city..jalan area city square dia, federation square dia…snappy snappy..lepak2 kejap..singgah GPO kejap, shopping complex that houses expensive brand names. Gi makan kat nelayan restaurant sat makan, then chalo ker southern cross.
@ the city center

@ the national gallery of victoria (NGV)

@ the GPO

@ the melbourne airport, tidying up our luggage before dropping it off at the counter..

Masa tu just nice jer masa tu kol 6pm dah..terus naik bus and off to the airport. Kat airport, flight delay one hour..patut kol 8.10 jadik 9.10masa ni aku melepak nak terlentok dah doze off..ngantuk gilos…touch down kat Sydney malam dekat kol 10.30 gitu..dari situ terus ke eastlakes jer sbb haritu park keter kat tepi2 jalan kat umah farid.

Selesai laaahh trip penutup 2009. Overall, like I said..a wholesome experience, indeed it was! Tiring one no doubt but I loved it to bits! If I were to do it any difference, I wish to be more prepared for such trip. The End....

Note to self:
Already aiming to go for another trip which should be the first for 2010. A road trip touring parts of tasmania island during the easter hols, see if it happens. Start menabung!!

Melbourne trip: day 2 & day 3

Day 2: 26/12

Harini pepagi kami dah kena kuor sbb nak return our rental car, walaupon masih penat. Sib baik leh return keter kat city jer instead of kat airport. Lepas setel2 tu, jenjalan sekitar main street kat city tu. Amik2 gambo and then kami ke Melbourne central.

RMIT University
State Library of Victoria

Melbourne Convention Centre

Southern Cross Station

Ingatnyer nak ke DFO Melbourne sbb after DFO gold coast, Melbourne nyer dikatakan murah gaks kalau nak banding ngan Sydney. So I heard. Mmg tak tau mana hala laa kan of kos, so kejap2 stop google address and trains needed to go there guna phone jer. Adoiiiiii sure mahal gilosss phone bill aku bulan ni weii…sikit2 google ikut tepon jer. Tapi bersyukur byk coz it sure helped a lot! Tengok2 DFO nyer kat essendon, about 30 minutes outskirt of melb city. Kami ker melb central, makan dulu...then beli tiket yg $6.80, for one whole day trip. Gi lah mana nak gi pon, tp idak la sampai buley cecah ker GOR nun kan.

Dari melb central tadi naik train, tp tah camana eks aku pon tak baper ingat..yg yer nyer ada silap train kot.. haa yer lah aku silap tunggu kat platform so silap naik train. So benti kat next stop, southern cross station. It is a big station for trains macam ala2 KL central nun laa..turun then gi kaunter info tanya. Get the right route, platform then baruuuu la naik train yg betui hehehehe. Dalam stgh jam kemdian, sampai kat essendon station. Tu diahh macam tempat terpencil jer suburb ni. From here, naik bus ker dfo..yg dalam 10 minit jer la and bus betoi2 benti depan DFO entrance dia. Easy lar gaks kalau nak ke sini. Amran yg gigih benonyer nak gi sini, I dunno why..dalam dia bukan kaki shopping..tp kat melb kemain semangat agik nak jenguk factory outlet sini.

Slamat sampai and jenjalan sini…boxing day sales kan..sales la merata2..tp aku mmg takdak aim la nak beli apa2 kat melb nih. So after awhile, kitaorg balik semula ke city via the same cara..bus + train. Sampai jer city, terus ke hotel sbb aku mmg pancit aaa..penat banget..padahal masa tu quite early lagi..kol baper eks…kol 4 gitu kot…penat dari semalam agik and this morning bangun awal. So balik hotel refresh ourselves, then aku bantai tidooooo…terjaga around kol 1.30 pagi gitu kot..tokleh tidoq lak sbb tido awai tadi. Amran pon terjaga gaks..so kitoarg turun gi cybercaf√© kat kedai sblh hotel ni, 24 hrs. Sempat gaks la surf cari food outlets, some train routes and other places to go. Then balik semula.

Day 3: 27/12

Masuk harini aku dah buley pickup on the tram city circle, its routes and places to go. So confident dah la masa ni, jadi takde dah la sesat larat hehehe..so here goes some of the piccas.

Parliament House of Victoria

Waiting for the tram in the heart of the city..nak ker Harbour Town Shopping Centre laks, another factory outlet kat melbourne. This one located at the Docklands. Tram tu benti betui2 depan shopping centre nih.




Ni dia FO dia, layout of the buildings sebijik cam harbour town kat gold coast nun.


Dah selesai meronda, kitaorg merewang laks kat Docklands area tepi2 laut. More or less like darling harbour gaks laa ni..


Kebetulan ada sunday market masa ni...so ronda2..



Charms by the aborigines, carved from bones.


Docklands area..



Yarra river


Lepas tu kitaorg gi Eureka Skydeck, naik ke tkt 88 depa and get a view again of the city. Naik atas ada entrance fee, and kalau nak masuk the edge ~ a transparent box yg terkeluo dari bangunan ni sket utk merasa dok di tpt tinggi and can see right thru ke bawah..ada another fee dia..baper tah, 10 dollars kot..aku tak masuk yg ni...lepas ni kitaorg pon balik ah..good thing about jalan during summer ni, siang dia panjang...so macam byk tpt leh cover in a day kalau larat and boleh plan cantik2 la kalau kena gayanya...


Wokessss...tu jer dulu, next entry will be on the last day.
