The first 4 gambar tu kat carvesham Wildlife Park
Untuk menghilangkan rasa jemu the 2 heroes and J-Lo..selalunya weekend we all bawa diaorang keluar le...Baik gak for both of us..lupa lah sekejap tentang yang "beserabut" dalam otak tu..he..he..
Jeng...jeng...jeng....ni haaa...gambar tempat- tempat yang 3 beradik tu suka pegi...of course..knowing them , tempat yang ada animals ..kira happening habih la for them...Tomato Park tu dekat je ngan umah...ada lah birds, ducks etc...
Caversham Wild life Park ni..jauh sikit...tapi 3 beradik ni enjoy sakan masa kat sana...Actually, I tak le minat ngan animals ni..tapi nak buat cam mana ..majority win le...yang lain lain tu ..memang minat abih especially my second hero...Pelik gak I..dia bole enjoy dok kat kandang kambing, kuda/keldai, arnab yang memang ada bau yang amat kuat tu...tambahan plak ada kandang "bab..." kat situ..bau tak yah cakap le...heee...memang tak faham..tu tak masuk bab dok "kelebek" kangaroo berjam jam...haa..bab kangaroo ni..my J-Lo pun jenuh nak control...dia nak pegi tidor sekali ngan kangaroo tu..and dia nangis macam nak pengsan sebab dia tak dibenarkan naik camel..(saiz badan tak cukup lagi)...ishhh...memang le tak paham...
Another place yang 3 beradik ni suka..apalagi..Perth Zoo...bayaran masuk for the whole family $50. Tapi my other half cakap memang berbaloi lah since bebudak ni suka sangat nengok animals..kat Perth Zoo ni diaorang dapat nengok gajah yang sedang mandi and makan..sampaikan gajah tu dok "ber.." pun diorang bole dok tunggu lagi...Then another interesting part..kat sini ada penguin..first time gak le I nengok ..cuma bau hanyir nye..teruk bebenor...Crocodile punya la besar...gerun semacam bila nengok...and ..ada galapagos tortoise (betul ke spelling ni..) yang besar tu...malangnya...I terlupa bawa camera le plak...tapi before balik, 3 beradik ni ada buat plan nak datang lagi...alamak..kopak lagi la poket Papa...he..he..

This morning I went to my second hero year end party. Dalam invitation card tu cakap kena bawa food. Dalam kesibukan sempat le buat karipap for his class. Alhamdulilah, his teachers and friends macam suka je makan karipap..sekejap je dah habis...
During that party, I pun ambik kesempatan beborak ngan his class teacher Ms Crosby about my second hero's performance,education system, their teaching approach etc. Banyak juga ilmu yang dapat dari Ms Crosby.
Tertarik betul whenever Ms Crosby cakap in primary school bebudak tu tak ditekankan content sgt. Maksudnya, diaorg punya subject content. The primary focus adalah to develop confidence dalam diri budak tu. Sebab diaorang percaya bila self confidence tinggi, then critical thinking bebudak ni pun akan develop coz bebudak berani menyuarakan pendapat about anything. As a result,bebudak ni akan lebih bersedia menghadapi cabaran dalam hidup.
Before balik Ms Crosby bagi free voucher untuk dapatkan buku worth $35.00 for summer holiday so that my second hero bole improve on his reading skill.And then dia bekalkan few extra exercises untuk my second hero buat during summer holiday.
Kelakar betul bila melihat dia bersungguh sungguh berpesan agar tidak memaksa my second hero buat all the exercises. Dia berkali kali cakap, in case my second hero nak buat then material dah ada but jangan force bebudak buat homework ..not good for children..
Dalam hati saya teringat kat Malaysia..bertimbun timbun homework diberi ole guru setiap hari...Saya, suami dan lain lain berjaya dari sistem yang penuh dgn homework and exams..Jadi menarik juga nak tengok perkembangan my second hero selepas 4 tahun di sini...Alhamdulillah..Allah memberi kesempatan buat saya melalui pengalaman sebagai seorang ibu di bumi Australia...

Nota: the other half kat workstation-city campus
Sila abaikan tarikh kat gambar tu ye-camera dah tak function bab date..he.he..(thanx Fadz)
Sekarang ni baru le I rasakan betul betul makna disebalik ungkapan masa itu emas. dari sekolah rendah sampai ke tua sekarang ni, the ungkapan dah common dah..cuma now rasanya begitu mendalam bagi saya.
Since both of us studying, and childcare kat sini yang mahal giler..both of us terkejar kejar mencari or mencuri masa untuk study.Routine kami lain bebenor dari most of the postgraduates students yang ada kat sini coz majority of them sorang je yang belajor..or kalau berdua belajor pun masuk or register lain masa..cam may be sorang a year a head from the other one..Jadi lebih mudah le nak handle bab bab study ni ..
Setakat ni kami hanya mampu hantar our J-Lo tu dua hari je ke childcare..itupun dah cost $124.20 per week..Dah jenuh pegi jumpa centrelink buat rayuan untuk dapatkan discount..cuma jawapan tetap sama..tak layak..Cuma through friends kami dapat tau ada yang kat Brisbane berjaya dapatkan discount..well..kat Perth ni setakat ni memang belum lagi ada Malaysian Postgrades student yang berjaya..Usaha terakhir pada Monday lepas..jawapan yang sama diterima selepas hampir 3 jam berdiscuss ngan pegawai in charge.. end up kami redha..bukan rezeki kami lah untuk dapatkan discount..
Jadi, now ni tengah adjust timetable baru plak... Untuk the first 3 days..sessi pagi till 3 pm..my other half pegi Uni/Library.. then 3 pm onwards giliran teman le plak.. kalau I nak pegi pagi susah le coz my J-Lo tu meragam..and I have to do the cooking, cleaning and banyak le lagi kerojenye..At least kalau I pegi after the second hero balik sekolah I pun rasa lega lah sikit coz semua dah settle.. Lagi pun , I punya day start at 4 in the morning..My other half pegi keja ..I punya study time le tu..coz anak anak lum bangun lagi..Untuk Friday and Thursday, we can go to the Uni/Lib together..
Tempat belajar pun dah adjust..Since now ni both of us still at the very early stage..banyak dok membaca saje..we have decided yang kami akan guna Library kat main Campus yang sememangnya dekat ngan umah...So tak yah ke workstation kat Perth City tu..
The best part for both of us adalah ,kitaorang attach ngan graduate school located kat Perth City Campus,and dapat all the kemudahan there macam library, paper, computer,printers, pen, pencil and semua le... at the same time kitaorang dapat guna all facilities kat main campus gak..hanya workstation je ada kat City Campus..Kat main campus kami still bole guna computer, buat printing etc kat Business School..Jadi kami diberi Allah 2 alternatives le may be due to the constraint lain yang kami hadapi kat sini..he..he..
Progress??..well ..both of us dah e-mail le apa yang kami nak buat..cuma now still waiting for the feedback from the supervisors ..diaorang ada kat New Zealand attending conference..hopefully by next week dapat le feedbacknye and from there we will work out the next step..he..he..
harap harap timetable baru ni lebih sesuai and lebih practical..he..he..

The first hero, still relax at home. He will only start his schooling next year (February)..wow..cuti panjang dia..he will enroll at Kent Street Senior High School. Dia dah sit for English test. Alhamdulillah, according to his teacher he can join the mainsteam class. Kat sini , yang datang and tak sempat masuk primary school , kena sit for english test. kalau ok, then masuk mainstream, kalau tak kena ambik extra english class.
As for both of us, still struggling finding the right time to study. As for now, my other half yang banyak pegi University. I will do my work (or better word appear as doing my work..he..he.) at home. Malam,bila semua dah tidor, baru lah I bole concentrate sikit.
Tomorrow my other half will start his part time career..apa lagi..jadi cleaner..oopss..I cakap ngan dia ..jgn sebut cleaner, cakap lah "floor engineer"..he..he.. His working time will be from 5-7 am..Monday to Friday(siann...kena bangun subuh subuh jadi cleaner). So I rasa , kami kena adjust lagi our timetable..
Supervisors, alhamdulillah, dah jumpa. Second meeting will be on the 9th January..We need to report on our reading and decide on whatever topic yang kami nak buat. Our proposals yang dah buat ari tu rasanya macam nak kena letak sebelah je...he..he..Susah nak dapat data..Basically, sekarang ni, both of us tengah pening le...he..he..Hopefully, by 9th January we will come out with something..hua..hua...

Pegi cari benda benda yang org tak nak tapi kami amat memerlukan..he..he.. dapat le cushions, toys etc.. yang sedihnya sikit my second hero cakap "mama, kat Jitra adik bagi toys kat org, kenapa sini kita kena beli yang org tak nak"..second hero ni high taste sikit,jadi dia still lagi tak dapat terima why should he buy second hand toys..he keep on saying dia ada banyak lagi toys yang cantik cantik kat umah Jitra..aduss...muga he will get use to it soon..End up dia dapat mainan yang paling mahal..$10..Abang Long ( amat memahami-agaknya dah besar kot)dapat games for $2 and Nina dapat basikal for $5.
Family Fun Day
On the way back dari Sunday Market, stop kat Victoria Park ada family fun day.. waaa..best la bebudak tu..macam macam ada ...macam fun fair kat Msia le..but the best part is semua FREE...happy gilerr bebudak tu main segala mak nenek yang ada..
BBQ @ Joondalup
Lepas Zohor pegi la plak BBQ kat Joondalup (jemputan postgrades kat ECU)..makan makan..borak borak...ketawa ketawa..bebudak le paling best..bila dah kumpul ramai ramai depa main cam kat Msia le plak..the two heroes pun happyle..Alhamdulillah...

Dulu: rasanya tak risau bab ni..alhamdulillah ada je rezeki masuk and more than enough.
Sekarang: Suspen je...really careful on what and how we spend our money!!

Sekarang: Jangan mimpi le!!!
Dulu: Stress bab kerja-eg ISO le apa le, students atitude le and all the clerical works yang entah apa apa
Sekarang: Stress gak...huaa...
Selepas memegang student card, me and the other half meninggalkan segala keselesaan yang pernah kami kecapi dan sedang belajar memulakan hidup seadanya di sini...Muga perjalanan kami sekeluarga di rahmati..Aminn...

After 3 weeks (first comment...nanti may be berubah...he..he), rasanya mudah memulakan hidup di UK as compared to OZ..Kat UK dulu (kenkawan yang ada sekarang pun cakap still sama), kalau sewa umah ..dah ada segalanya...siap bole minta ngan landlord lagi apa yang nak...(my experience le)
sini habuk pun tarak...rumah kosong...semua kena beli sendiri...Kalau yang fully furnshed kat OZ ni jgn harap le mampu nak bayar especially kat WA..harga umah melambung lambung...
Cuma sini halal food mudah...kedai makan yang halal banyak...kat Uni pun ada halal corner...jadi bab ni OZ bagus le..kat UK dulu jgn harap le nak ada halal food in the campus...
well..apa nak buat..here I am..and going to be here for the next 4 years...

Since today is my last day in my sweet little office, many came to say good bye. Among them were the Dr(s) and of course the Dr(s) in the making (friends who are still striving through the lonely journey).They came up with stories, experiences and of course tips on how to face the lonely journey.And I...listened to them dgn penuh suspen and kecut perut. Most of them asked me similar questions; what is my arrangement for my 2 year old daughter?who is going to look after her while I am out to the Uni?Have I made some sort of agreement/arrangement with my other half on "sistem giliran" ? and my answers ;I dont know and NO.Huaaaaa......bole ke survive ni???????

Am I doing the right thing? Can we survive ? can we finish on time? will the children happy living there? are they going to like their schools? is it worth to leave everything that we have here and move there for the next 4 years? Supervisor..ahaaa..another frightening issue to think about? what about house...we will be based at the city campus..rumah must be mahal giler...takutnye...
Basically, tooooooo many questions in my head ..makin hampir...makin suspen and banyak lagi belum settle..especially packing barang barang umah ni...nak suruh maid buat pun sian plak bulan puasa ni...lepas raya la ...2 weeks after raya dia dah kena hantar balik le plak...ish..
Hanya pada Allah ku berserah..muga Dia membuka dan mempermudahkan jalan seterusnya memberkati kami sekeluarga..Aminnn....

But, for polenney ikan haruan...emmmmm...should be immediately followed by something else..orange juice ke apa ke...if not..rasa nak keluar balik le...I still remember seeing Fauziah Latif drink this product dgn penuh ketenangan and senyuman....mesti dapat bayaran banyak ni...he..he..
Alhamdulillah dgn izin Allah these two products help me to heel faster..so kenkawan..kalau ada masalah luka luka lepas operation..why not cuba these two products.."menyiksakan tapi melegakan"..he.he.

My second hero came back from school with few other stories about his new girlfriend.. telling me everything about the girl..nampak benor dia suka kawan ngan budak ni..actually he has been telling me about this girl for the last few weeks...cuma sebabkan busy I never have a chance to see or meet this girl..or may be I tak ambik kisah sgt about cite girlfriend dia ...and today my second hero ulang lagi ayatnye.."mama belum lagi jumpa girlfriend baru adik..dia pandai" and then he proudly said adik dah tunjuk kat Mak(his granny)..
I asked him what did Mak (granny) say?..confidently he claimed that Mak said o.k..he..he.. I bet my mum tak perasan pun budaknye...
Then , i decided to ask him...your girlfriend tu putih ke? (because dari Tadika lagi my second hero cukup memilih untuk berkawan..)cikgu Tadika pernah complained about this.. During his Kindy days dia hanya nak main or sit with budak budak yang berkulit cerah je....slowly he said "tak putih tapi adik suka kawan sebab dia pandai"...oooops...so now I know ...he has included another category in his list..
Adusss!! I still remember his two favourite girlfriends kat Tadika - Misha and Sophia...and now Amalina....by the time he reach 25 thn I can't imagine how long the list will be... Doa I ..muga dia akan berubah bila besar nanti...he..he.. kalau tak fening...fening...

Kenkawan, adik kakak ,pok cik mok cik out there lets talk about harga barang...heeeee..gerrrammm betul when it comes about this issue..
Having 3 children yang sedang membesar and a husband yang not fond of eating outside food..going to the market has become my routine...lately, I realised that harga barang..mak datok!! naik mencanak canak..make me wondering..are there any actions taken by the "menteri" to control this accelerating trend! For instance, ari ni je, a kg of crab is RM22.00, a kg of ikan kembung is RM8.00, a kg of ikan terubuk is RM 20.00 and a kg of ayam is RM7.50..and the funniest thing is that the penjual ayam siap informing me that next week the price will be RM8.00 perkg...aaaikkk..awalnya dia dah tahu berapa dia nak jual next week!!
Aduuuhhh!! wahai pak pak menteri ..please turun padang..don't just ask rakyat ubah cara hidup...how to ubah cara hidup if ikan kembung pun dah RM8.00/kg.
Another thing..last time when the government announced harga minyak naik, immediately harga barang lain pun naik...but now when the government announced harga minyak turun then why suddenly semua diam...why not harga barang yang di naikkan dulu tu turun or back to the original price..
I bukannya apa..cuma nampaknya trend rakyat msia sekarang ni macam naik bus le....they don't really like the conductor and driver bus yang memandu sambil tido...but they cannot change the driver and the conductor...takut takut nanti ..they decide to change the bus instead! tak ke haru tu....

I just bought a new laptop..it is going to be my new best friend and my additional anatomy...he..he..so far I don't have any..everytime I need to use it.. I will just show my "sedih" face begging for sympathy to my other half..and the best part is.. it works! but I think that political strategy of mine cannot be applied anymore...in a couple of months both of us are going to embark on a very challenging journey where the additional anatomy has become a mandatory!

Well friends just want to share ..miracle does happen in life!..the most important thing is keep on "berdoa"..because Allah juga yang menentukan segalanya... dan Allah juga yang Maha Mengetahui...
My eldest hero will be sitting for his UPSR this September...Worry??.. rasanya I am the one who is experiencing all the feeling..he..he..and when he came back home last week with his trial exam result suddenly I felt like all the butterflies in this whole world are flying and enjoying themselves in my stomach...he..he..
Hari Anugerah Kecemerlangan..
Last week we were invited to Hari Anugerah Kecemerlangan...My second hero dapat hadiah...but he was quite upset with the hadiah (voucher buku) as he was expecting something else..he..he..
Happy Birthday ...
Happy Birthday to my "drama queen"...She is two years old...to my youngest sister:Achu..where is the cake!!!you promise to buy a birthday cake ..the chocolate moist from Secret Recipe... they are waiting for your cake!!
Saturday, July 26, 2008
OK today I would like to write about this phrase "cerdik pandai"... what ever written is my personal opinion. To me ..people is said to be "cerdik" based on few reasons... the more merits you get in exam...the more As you collected in exam..the more trophies you get in school or university...the more awards you get in your life...the higher level you can achieve in your career...all these will qualified you to be in the group that we called "cerdik"... No doubt..many fall in this group!!
But this does not necessarily mean you are "pandai".When you are "cerdik" but you refuse to understand certain simple issue..you don't want to listen to others..you failed to rationalise simple things..you block the great mind of yours from digesting simple problem...and the worst thing is that when you do not want to admit that everything happen in this beautiful world is controlled by Allah...sian...sian...so I will then classified you in this special category which I , myself called "golongan cerdik tapi tak pandai"...he..he..he...

Last sunday was my granny 80th birthday...since she is now staying with my mum, so my mum hosted a birthday party..ooops...birthday kenduri for her. Main menu: mee kuah(yum yum yum..sedap sesangat) so to my sister kat Kuching - sorry le you missed this special recipe , + macaroni bakar ( my sister in law showing off her cooking talent...he..he not bad...next time buat lagi no..) + doughnut + apam + lompang + fruits + air hulk (the green syrup)...
the only thing that make my second hero upset was..no birthday cake!!!...he complained how come having a birthday party without a birthday cake...he seriously think that it was very unfair to his Nek not to have one!..
So all her anaks, cucus and cicits (I put everything in plural form kay...he..he..)gathered at my mum's house...deep down terfikir gak..will I have a chance to celebrate my 80th birthday!

Yesterday I got to know the whole story behind the "hindi series" ... That person informed (or may be updated ) me with the details including the name of the producer,director, co-director and the main actor/actress ...based on the clue given ..I can basically guess the source of the story (reliable source)...I was amazed with the information/details given to me...
I am not going to reveal anything here about the truth behind the "hindi series" as I myself has been pretty bored with this issue..but i just want to highlight that I have learned a lot about life and people while going through the "hindi series"...
Firstly,just to clarify things ..after what had happened my husband and I never ever make any attempt to find out about the story behind it (yang tersirat le ni)...but again unexpected things happen in life... We received many phone calls and e-mails from close friends and also new friends...and through the conversations they somehow inform us ...usually they put it in a very nice way... may be psychologically they do not want to burden us more with this issue..
But yesterday, this person explained clearly the story behind it (from A to Z)...why??.. this person felt that we need to know...we deserve to know...we should know...and we are very naive about what is happening around us... and it is time to wake us up!! he..he..
Now , What I have learned:
1) In life, some people ..they will do/use whatever ways just to make sure that they get what they want.
2) Machiavellianism and office politics seems to have relationship...this is interesting...my husband and I have carried out two research on Machiavellianism..but so far never thought to include office politic as one of the variables..may be this will be a good research prospect..he..he..
3) many of us "terlupa" about the judgment day..whatever kita buat kat dunia ni even sebesar hama pun akan di persoalkan kelak...
4) The "hindi series" incidents revealed to me clearly on my husband's principle in life...He said clearly to me "Jgn sesekali kita mengambil hak org lain hanya untuk memastikan kita dapat apa yang kita nak"..he said..even if we get what we want...kita tak dapat pastikan adakah org yang teraniaya itu menghalalkan apa yang telah kita ambil....
5) Keep on berdoa..muga both of us tak termasuk dalam golongan yang menganiayakan org lain...
Our feelings and reactions towards the story (yang tersirat):
1) Bohong le.. kalau cakap tak ada rasa marah , kecik hati and rasa amat tidak adil atas apa yang berlaku...
2) But we understand about concept "rezeki" ...
3) We also understand that decision making juga dipengaruhi oleh ethical ideology /theory yang banyak mempengaruhi the decision maker...
Inilah realiti kehidupan...dunia..dunia...he..he...

Last Thursday we were invited by the school for a special (parents-teachers)meeting..The meeting was scheduled at 11 o'clock... A big problem to both of us coz Thursday is a working day...Not to upset my son and trying very hard not to give bad impression to the teachers ...one of us has to attend the meeting...and as expected..of course I am the one who attended the meeting...(meeting ngan cikgu ni kira masuk dalam fail meja seorang mama le...)
At first I don't really know the purpose of the meeting (only a simple invitation letter was given)..I was 30 minutes late (need to settle my lecture first )...When I arrived ...the teachers and parents were in the middle of discussion on how to make sure that most of the students score 5As in the coming UPSR...
After 15 minutes listening to their discussions ...somehow the panic and confuse feeling overtake my whole biological system...all of them (referring to those who were actively involve in the discussion) were so engrossed with the idea that getting 5As is the MUST for the children...MANDATORY...as if UPSR is the "life and death" issue...
Oh Please... we are talking about the 12 years old children...they are just kids..Nobody seems to care about how they feel and the pressure these kids are facing at school...they have to fulfil the school's target as well as their parents..don't you think at this age we are pushing them tooooo much!
Well, don't get me wrong.. I am a mother too and of course I want my son to excell ... I also have the same dreams like other parents BUT I strongly feel that the current system sort of forget that we are dealing with children...and I still believe that schooling/ learning should be fun !!! then the children will appreciate more... and personally I don't think that our current education system provide this... we are so concern about producing thousands 'As"...and most people (including teachers!!! )think that the ability to collect "A" is the primary indication of the children's capability...
So, to the teachers and parents out there..may be it is about time for us to think critically about this issue...All of us have our dreams and want the best for our children..but at the same time please don't forget that they are just kids and let them enjoy their childhood...
entah le...just giving opinion...
Plan for the day...I am going to cook nasi beriyani ayam + kurma daging +.... have to cook early coz I have my PJJ class today. The menu is for lunch...
Dinner?- why not we go to Kuala Perlis ...Seafood...emmmm...sedap gak...wait...have to check homework the two heroes first...kalau tak banyak..then we can go there...if not...kena buat plan B le plak...

The new car ..of course much much smaller than the old one...but bersyukur lah ...anak anak pun nampak o.k...alhamdulillah dgn rezeki yang dikurniaNya...
Hopefully by next year we can buy another car (second car)...senang sikit nak pegi keja and gilir ambik and antor anak ...Muga Allah murahkan lagi rezeki kami...Amin...
After 15 years in service..their actions really "hurt" me...Kalau I/we ada buat mistake yang nyata...then it is fine to punish us..but till this moment we failed to recall anything yang kitaorang buat salah...We did realise about the "double standard" decision made by them...at the same time we also realised that they have the power to do so...But just to point out ...to us "it is not a fare game at all"..
Hari ini berlalu dengan penuh rasa terkilan...But ...may be ini yang terbaik buat kami...Allah juga yang Maha Mengetahui...Hidup mesti diteruskan...

Just came back from Kuching..Went there to visit my sister and of course for a vacation..cuti sekolah le katakan..Thank you to my beloved sister and her hubby..We enjoyed our stay there especially the "nasi ayam steam" and the "Tea -C Special" (betul ke spelling ni?)..Ari ni pun dok teringat lagi... Our visit to Elephant tu pun best..Sorry kalau membuatkan umah you all yang ala ala anjung seri tu betukar jadi tongkang pecah..

But ada satu unexpected called ...well..actually I still dok besedih hati about that lousy reason...out of the sudden..I got this called..macam tau je I dok runsing...he..he
To the caller , banyak yang nak cite sebenornya...dalam kepala dah plan nak cite semua..but when I heard all the good news from ur side..I decided not to talk about it...entah le..rasanya that's me always hiding my frustration or may be I really appreciate ur effort and do not want to spoil the conversation...the truth is I am happy with your achievement in life..really am happy. The following song is dedicated to you and thank you for ur "Doa".
Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
Whats too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So its the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were..
The way we were...

It seems quite a long time since I did my last posting to this blog. Actually, I am feeling down, depress and confuse. Confuse with everything around me, depress with everyone's action and feeling down with the unsolved situation.
o.k where to start my Hindi story...lets begin with the offer of scholarship. We were offered to do our PhD in NZ. Immediately after knowing this result we e-mailed our CV and research proposals to all (8) universities in NZ. Then we knew that only 3 universities provide expert in our area of studies. Out of these 3, one dah penuh la plak(supervisor dah ramai student)....we then proceed with formal applications to the other two universities. However, till today we still didn't get any offer letter not even "conditional" offer letter from these two universities.
At the same time, we were given the cut off date (23rd May) to at least submit "conditional offer letter" to our sponsors. We have e-mailed and phoned the two universities and persuade them to speed up the application process. The responds were not promising at all. They said,the normal process will take at least 6 months..(now dah 4 months ) meaning we have to wait another 2 months before we can get any letter from them or may be if we were from the Bolkiah family the respond wil be different!..he..he..(by the way, I don't understand lamanya NZ nak process..I got my unconditional offer letter from Essex Uni kat UK after 2 weeks sending my research proposal to them..malangnya teman idak le dapat scholar ke UK..he..he)
Since both of us already got unconditional offer letters from Australia..we then proceed with the appeal to change our placement..instead of going to NZ we appeal to go to Australia. Verbally, we were informed that they have agreed to send us to Australia. But till now, we haven't received any black and white regarding this matter. Without the confirmation letter , the financial guarantee letter will not be given to us. Therefore, we cannot send our "acceptance of offer" to the Australian University. In short, without the confirmation letter , nothing can be done . Based on the unconditional offer letter, the registration date is in July...(2 bulan lagi Beb!!)..and of course, a lot more to settle...
Since our story is similar to the Hindi movie.. Alaa....the familiar storyline..where the handsome hero from the rich family falls in love with the pretty but poor lady..both of them will be forced to go through the hardness before the can get married and live hapily ever after...so I really hope our ending will be exactly like the Hindi movie.."happy ending"..
As for now , my doa is that "muga Allah bukakan and permudahkan jalan bagi kami sekeluarga" Amin.....

Once upon a time..during my school days..there was a guy who really hate me . Reason(s) for the hatred?...sorry - never resolved till now. My only logical answer is his biological system does not suit mine ...so there was no "chemistry" between us...but again ..it was a long..long..time ago..
Recently...he accused me with something that I did not mean to be and the horrible part is he used the very very very very rude word! The point is whatever I have written in the "posting" was my way of having fun with my close friends and definitely he is not in the list! If he misinterpreted it may be due to the differeence in our wavelength. Again as an educated and matured adult he should learn to accept opinion from others..
Many has indirectly pointed out his "beyond border" attitute..but again ..knowing him...all effort become worthless....
Well..to that "special" guy I hereby officially announced that your name has been deleted from my database!!!
1) Agreed 120% with KA..we did not practice ...pinjam kata kata budak AF6 "redah je..."how could we get a good result...but at least I am better than my other half in the sense that at least I know the format of the test earlier than him...he asked me about the format a night before the test...lagi blurrrr....he..he...
2) Our level of English is getting worse......we managed to get better result during our A-level time..may be it is a sign of an old age..he..he
So need more practice for the second attempt!

To the BN..I think they should by now get the signal given to them and really have to work out on few issues...I believed few important issues like harga barang ,harga minyak, corruption,scandals should be tackled in a more constructive ways..They should learn to give more intellectual reasons...not like "harga barang naik...ubah cara hidup" or " harga minyak naik...other countries pun naik gak"...these kind of answers are no longer relevant ..People hunger for a more concrete reasons ..with fact and figures...and this is what the BA did...they provide kononnya "fact and figures"...and they make a gain out of it...
Another thing...the oppositions carried out their campaigns seriously and "full heartedly"...Not to say BN did not do the same...but on the surface it looks like most of the BN takes thing so lightly....On top of that, I think "kedegilan" few of the "un"wanted leaders to step down worsened the situation...
As for the BA...you might now enjoy your "extraordinary" achievement...but mind you...now you are given the responsibility...you are obliged to answer for any dissatisfaction in the next election...you have at least 4 years to prove what ever you have promised...so..best of luck!
ok bloggers gotto stop...remember.."politician is like a diaper..need to change regularly"..he..he
Many called to ask about my IELTS test...thanks for all the concerns, supports and of course your vote of confidence..but deep down in my heart ...that test was a frustrated one...he..he..
In short I think the best way to describe my performance for the four stages was: listening was o.k, reading was a disaster,writing ..well.. very challenging..speaking.. not bad...conclusion-very slim chance for me to get band 7.By the way, NZ universities why did u need band 7? and not 6 or 6.5 like other Australian universities....
My next plan...may be I want to try TOEFL...some said this test is easier than IELTS but the most interesting part..they said it is cheaper...he..he..but again I have to check the requirement..Do NZ universities accept TOEFL..anybody out there wants to share their experience or give me some input about TOEFL....help me!!!!

Recently, God give me the opportunity to meet few of my old friends.I haven't met some of them for more than 20 years.They were the one who shared my happiness and sorrow during my schooldays. We grew up together in one of the boarding schools .Now most of them have become somebody in their selected fields.Somehow I feel proud to have friends like them. But again , life is not always rossy for everybody.So to my old friends, the following poem (which I came accross in the internet) is dedicated to all of you.
Potrait of a Friend
I can't give solutions to all life's problems,doubts,or fears.
But I can listen to you,and together we will search for answers.
I can't change your past with all it's heartache and pain,nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys,triumphs,sucesses,and happiness are not mine;yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make,nor to judge;
I can only support you,encourage you,and help you when you ask.
I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,from your values,from me.
I can only pray for you,talk to you and wait for you.
I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change,room to grow,room to be yourself.
I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.
I can't tell you who you are.
I can only love you and be your friend.

Salam to all Malaysian out there...hope I am not that late to write about our PRU...Well..at last the PM declared the "date"..Of course after going through so many speculation ...this coming 8th of March will turn out to be another "hari ini dalam sejarah" for us Malaysian...
The big question is... have we make up our mind?he...he... bet not an easy task right..I still remember when I was young my father used to drive me around my home area to see the political parties put up their flags....somehow I did enjoy seeing the scenery ....the colourful flags and the posters just make my kampung more lively...he..he..
As I grow older, I come to understand that election means more than having colourful flags and posters...election is the time where we Malaysian should exercise our power...power to choose the leaders /government that we want....
So, my last words to all Malaysian " tepuk kepala...decide nak pangkah yang mana"...

To all students out there...I think it is good if all of you focused on your study rather than wasting time doing this 'political'things. Let the politician deal with political issues. They are paid to do this.You can seriously put yourself in the political arena after graduating. Mind you, good academic background will of course provide extra credit later in life including in politics. If you failed, don't dream that people will vote for you. This is politics and not Malaysian Idiol or AF.
Perhaps universities should be more lenient by providing proper place for students to express their opinion including political opinion. Talking about political issues and involvement in politics are two different things.A "free zone"where students are allowed to make their own speech about anything might be a good start. After all,ability to speak in public and express their opinion in a more constructive way are good even if they do not want to be a Menteri Besar later.

then i have to pay RM 8.00 for a kg of ikan selar kuning...We are not talking about luxury food here..we are talking about a very simple kampung style kind of food..not to mention about harga chicken and beef..RM 50.00 a day to the market is nothing now!..
I always think I am among the fortunate to have the opportunity to work and stay in a "kampung" area..definitely based on the low cost of living...but now that thought might not reflects the reality anymore...what can I do ? well ..nothing much except exercising my "power" during the next election....ha..ha... when will that be?

why do i write about these three words? .. well, lately i realised that some of us do not care or couldn't be bothered to care about our kawan, rakan, teman or sahabat...whether we like it or not ..we tend to become very insensitive,intolerate,self centered in our daily actions including our actions toward the three groups listed above...i have met people declared to be your kawan one day and yet act like they never knew you the next day...and people yang hanya akan 'berkawan" if only that other person brings benefit to her/him...As for me I still percaya no matter who you are...you are still hamba Allah... and always tell my self "ular yang menyusur akar tak akan hilang bisanya"...
So to all my kawan, rakan, teman and sahabat out there...if you somehow realised that I have become a very insensitive and self centered person ... please "wake me up"....maklum lah saya pun manusia....

Few days ago..i heard one Dr (sorry can't remember his name) talked about the maximum weight yang bole budak bawa...he said the maximum weight yang bole budak angkat is 10% dari berat badan budak tu...If not..later in life budak tu akan dapat masalah backbone...
As a parents of course that satement risaukan I....my eldest son at the age of 12 baru 26 kg...meaning that dia HANYA bole angkat beg with the mximum weight of 2.6kg...the reality..there are days yang dia have to galas beg lebih kurang with his own weight!!!...
During the taklimat bersama waris session on the first day of school..the headmistress said parents MUST make sure the students follow strickly their timetable...bring only those books yang nak guna... so that no more complaint about beg berat....
The next day I personally check my son's timetable to ensure that he brings only the necessary books to school..but ...balik je sekolah..he complained one of the teachers marah him coz he didn't bring one of the books...the crazy thing about it is that subject /book is NOT listed in the timetable for that day..... So... Cakap Tarak Serupa Bikin.....
I wonder why the Kementerian did not provide locker to the students...kalau computer yang harga berjuta bole bagi...rasanya locker will not cost that much....OR maybe anak anak menteri tak complaint coz most of them may be go to the private school which definitely have different environment...
Conclusionnya...bila la BEG BERAT ni akan selesai......

Malaysia Boleh!!!!...rasanya that the best remark to respond to the latest "kisah benar" created by one of the top persons in the government. His pengakuan of being a "romantic" hero in the video has bring a new phenomena in this country ...apa taknya...our new generation will have the impression that if u make something immoral...the best way is to publicly declare it so that u can somehow turn urself to be a hero and don't forget to bring along your friends to back you up....heran...ada plak yang dok back up.....
so don't waste our time trying to control and educate our teenagers about the danger of having free sex and the tendency of getting AIDS...the most influential person in that field dah bagi a good example....what a remarkable start for the new year....or is this the new way of celebrating New Year!!
"the most important thing now is that my family has accepted my apology..."Hey old man...I would like to remind u ..in case u have forgotten this phrase due to your old age...to forgive and to forget are two different things...(the first one easy, the second one not that simple maaa.....) so best of luck to you!!!
next one...don't try to switch the focus of the issue....to highlight that u didn't create the video urself...it's someone else creative work!...luckily u didn't blame the Feng Shui of that nostalgic hotel room....whoever did it and with whatever reason is secondary...the point is u shouldn't do that immoral thing especially at your "golden age".
Well Malaysian...Happy New Year....
