Show some Manner Please!

Warning!



Have you ever get pissed by some stranger because he jump/cut queues? How about some dude who talks loudly on his cellphone at public places. Or some lady who scowls at you for being polite or abiding the rules?



Of course, no matter what we hear from foreigner tourists about how polite, friendly and courteous Malaysian are, I seldom find these sort of people. Maybe you can only find polite people near tourist attraction. Or maybe I'm stuck in a place where no tourist will visit.



I like going to KL(Kuala Lumpur) using the public transport. I do dislike the STAR/PUTRA/Monorail though. The door open and close too fast. Because of that, people rushes to get in and out of the LRT(Light rail transit). Once, I wanted to get out of the LRT but couldn't because of the swarm of people rushing in. Let us get out first then you'll have more space!



But there was this uncle who was nice and stern ^^ He shouted saying let people out first and even resorted to block the others from entering. +50 marks uncle! -10 marks to some makcik who force herself in.



I'm sure people who visits KL more often then the washroom have more stories to tell. Lets look closer at my place now. I find people who hog the corridor impolite. They walk in a group, talking and taking all the width with them. When a person comes from the opposite direction, none of them would shift to the back or front and let the other person pass.



This happens to me a few times. I had to stop to tell them to move it. Some of them will throw weird looks at me. Please, sharing is caring.



It might not be a big deal. It started small and doesn't bother you so much. But after having it repeated again and again, you'll get sick of it. I sure did.



Now, time to go and study~

Autumn Sleepiness

Stock image

Or is it winter already o_O? Staying in a country like Malaysia means no fall or winter, just summer all year around with the occasional thunderstorm.

I still have 2 more papers to go, but due to some unknown reason, I have a week gap before my next paper o_O

Eh, so what to do to fill in all those free time? Here is my list of things that I'll do when I'm too free;
  • Stay in the library. The only place that the merciless heat can't reach(except during blackouts). The air-conditioner is turned on full blast all the time. Not to mention the only place I can surf the internet without Mr. Company Violation ruining my fun. Also a nice and cozy place to fall asleep.
  • Do some cleaning. This can be the room, the trash, laundry, the computer, or sorting and deleting all the junks that i manage to accumulate inside the hard disk. The last one is the easiest to do.
  • Messing with the PC. It's always fun to try out new stuff. What better(and cheaper) way than trying out freewares? Just make sure the recovery disk is nearby.
  • Watch videos. Not many people share stuff that I'm interested in. I just manage to find some direct download, and have been going to the library everyday(since study week) to download it. Then go back to my room to watch it. Yes, the library is my second home~
  • Play games. Nothing beats playing games and let it sucks your life away over and over again~
  • Sleep. When all else fails, just crash onto the bed and shut your eyes. Hopefully you'll fall asleep soon after. And pray you WILL raise again >_<
Well, that wasn't enlightening at all. Maybe having too much free time freezes my brain altogether, since it doesn't know what to do XP

Trying to Cheat

Quote from Wikipedia on cheating;

Cheating is defined as an act of deception, fraud, trickery, imposture, or imposition. Cheating characteristically is employed to create an unfair advantage, usually in one's own interest, and often at the expense of others. Cheating implies the breaking of rules. The term "cheating" is less applicable to the breaking of laws, as illegal activities are referred to by specific legal terminology such as fraud or corruption. Cheating is a primordial economic act: getting more for less, often used when referring to marital infidelity.


Books



It's exam week, and it has been pretty tough. Most of us will spend most of our time forcing our brains to absorbs all those notes, formulas, algorithm etc as much and as fast as they can. But sometimes, when we can't do it and becomes depress and tries desperately to find an alternative. One of is is by cheating in exams and test.



(Un)Fortunately for Reiki, she seldom succeeds in cheating.



Yes, Reiki failed in cheating during test and exams. Some of the tactics that I tried was;

  • Sign language. I tried asking Q45's answer using hand gesture, and all my neighbor did was bop her head slightly, saying, "What?!"
  • Peeking at other candidate's paper. But my eyesight is so bad I can't even see the other's OMR answer sheet.
  • Asking for answer verbally. Sometimes my whispers are so soft my friend ignores me complety. Even if s/he heard and tried to help me, s/he have to repat the answer a few times, and I still couldn't get it till the invigilator comes around.
  • Listening to others. Sometimes other people cheats and share too. So I tried to follow them, but their whisper was inaudible.

  • Hidden notes/formulas. I tried writing some notes on my hand during primary school. I accidentally washed it with soaps during recess. I made another attempt in university, this time writing it on paper and hiding it. Only I forgot where I put it and couldn't find it till now.

Just a few attempts in trying to cheat. I know other people who successfully cheat. Oh heck, they were able to exchange answer booklet!



Dang, someone teach me how to cheat!

Hoping Like a Kangaroos

Exam week! ZOMGIMGONNADIESCREWIT!!! o_O!!!

Sennheiser MX400

*Ahem*Well lets talk about Kangaroos. I mention that I won't buy anymore stuff online. Well, I just receive my Sennheiser MX400 on Monday ^o^ I can just ask my dad to bank in the money than repay him later XD

Took quite a while for this item to arrive. Probably because I live in rural area(LOL!). Poslaju, Skynet and GDex comes here more often than Kangaroo courier.

Speaking of the item itself, I'm pretty impress with it. The music is much louder and has more bass in it. The earphones also feels lighter. Better than my Sony and cheapo Philips earphones. By the way, both the Senn and Sony earphones has similiar designs o_O.

Tokyopop is tasteless and offensive?

I can't remember what was Tokyopop's address so I Google it, and lo and behold, the Company Policy kicks in o_O It was just a Google search...

My 2006 Resolution

Alice-chan in a pinch

Just like Alice-chan from Aria, I didn't succeed in my resolution yesterday, or today for the matter.

I have exams next week. I'm supposed to study this week. But no, I haven't done a single reading. I've been told off by my friend and sis, yet here I am watching The Third- Aoi Hitomi no Shojo, amaze with Bogie's awesomeness. Oh man, a flying tank is so cool!

*Ahem!*Back to topic; I haven't succeed in most of my resolution. I postpone my work, did my project last minute, forgot to take out the trash and do the laundry, didn't do this, didn't do that... Well, it’s starting to bug me now. So I was wondering, what should I do so I may stay focus? How do you guys study during study week? What is your preparation for exams?

God knows that Reiki rarely study. Oh heck, go ask my fellow friends and colleagues. And they ask me how I study... Of course I don't. That's how I flunk my papers each time o_O

I'll try putting more effort, but even that will tire me easily. Maybe I should buy a power-bar for starters...

Sunday Dinner

Well, after some misadventure with forgotten quiz, test, assignment and meals, I am finally free from class, all thanks to study week

Aikido grading last Sunday. I had to attend a dinner the same day too. God I was so exhausted that dinner wasn't as interesting as a good night sleep.

But of course, Reiki still loves food, and everyone commented that I look 'berselera' eating (^^);; Our table was the most 'tak malu' one; We were the first to ask for seconds serving, we asked for more servings shortly after that, and even opt to 'steal' some foods from other table o_O!

I did took some pictures, but since there was not much lighting, the pictures turns out blurry and bad. Until I learn how to use Photoshop, you wouldn't get any from me XP

My eyes are tired from playing games too much...
