It's been a very d beri2 while since my last post. It's already the end of the 1st half of the 1st semester 2009. Dun wanna keep my blog 'bersawang' for a long time. Got lots of stuff to share, lots of thing to say, too tired and too busy to write. Oh, lets also blame my mental-block illness in writing for not updating the blog (that is, if there's someone who actually cares about me updating my blog :p). It's been already a week of a 2-week holiday for Auckland Uni. students (yahoo!!(what kinda hols with lots of asmnt and lab reports to write huh?..haha)), so I'll try my best to take this opportunity to update the content of this blog. I'Allah :). So to break the ice, I'll talk a lil bout my papers this semester. Yosh!!
I'm doing 4 papers this semester, and oh..all physics. Erm, physics is not a physics (so far..) unless you're immersed (voluntarily or forcefuly) into the realm of labs. Oohh yess..the labs. I got 2 3-hour labs per week and 1 3-hour lab fortnightly. So, I got this lab craze every 2 weeks, where my week will be filled with 3 3-hour labs (terbaek kan..huhu).
PHYSICS 211 (Analytical Techniques in Physical Sciences 3):
One serious class to substitute Maths 253 and Maths 260. This is basically a Maths course, taught in a physical science point of view. So you don't have to prove theorems for no apparent reason (in physics PoV of course :p). This is the smallest class for me so far, 15 students enrolled for the class, bout 13 appear regularly for lectures. We're gonna endure one 3-hour MATLAB lab fortnightly, 8 assingments, and finally 2 tests. Why do I took the chances of taking the course which no one tried before? Well, 1stly, obviously I'd wanna avoid Maths 253. 2ndly, I'd wanna reduce the burden for next semester for this course also equivalent to Maths 260, which I have to do next semester. 3rdly, to teach myself the sense of independence, try to do something which no one did before, hence, try not to depend on others so much. Wish me luck :).
PHYSICS 213 (The Geophysical Environment); Physics 230 (Materials and Waves) and Physics 240 (Networks and Electronics):
Nothing much to say bout these courses, they're precluded in our 'schedule' prepared by the university. The interesting part for Physics 230 and Physics 240 is, unlike 1st stage Physics (e.g Physics 150, 120) stage 2 physics labs don't depend on the course per se (do I use this word correctly :p?)(i.e. you're not assigned to different experiment for a single subject (240 and 230)). You do the same lab for both papers. The only thing is, maybe there's an experiment or two which you are required to do in order to pass the paper (this info is especially intended for our physics juniors..take note :) ). Oh, as I'm doing physics 230 and physics 240 in one semester, I'd have to do 2 lab sessions per week (1 session = 3 hours). So, there goes my weekdays. The training to become a physicist (be it a physics teacher, or wherever that may require my service later :) ). Oh..regarding the subjects which I intended to sacrifise this semester..erm..
Physics 230 and Physics 213. 2 out of 4 subjects isn't a good decision kan. So..waahh!!gotta strive for all subject la camnih..yosh!!
p/s: Thanks to Sho, the one responsible for introducing this heart touching memories of high school song to me (ooh I'm not gay jz becoz I say heart touchin yeah..huhu)

Cheers :D :D
m goin away 4 a moment from my study desk, n my dear assignment (yes, assignment(s)..on d 1st week of skola..haiih~). Surfin the net, readin ppl's blog, and I found this from Shahida's. How funny I wont feel sleepy doin this test, unlike bout 5 mins ago, while doin my asmnt..hahaha. So, this's d result and my comment :D. Yosh~!!:
Your view on yourself:You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties (Me..an efficient problem solver?).
The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:You like serious, smart and determined people (Somewhat yes). You don't judge a book by its cover (sometimes..), so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style (Definitely..!!). This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes (again..me..attractive to others??).
Your readiness to commit to a relationship:You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person (gotta finish d studies n work 1st la..huhu). And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might see that person (Will I?).
The seriousness of your love:Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive (am not so straightfwd..melayu le katekan), so you will find yourself with plenty of dates (Plenty of dates? yes..in Ramadhan. Ramai org baek sedekah kurma kat surau..).
Your views on educationEducation is very important in life (No doubt!!). You want to study hard and learn as much as you can (There's a big chasm dividing WANT and WILL..I want? yes!! will I? That's gonna need a lot of effort..yosh!!).
The right job for you:You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income (So rite :D). Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life (So rite :D).
How do you view success:Success in your career is not the most important thing in life. You are content with what you have and think that being with someone you love is more than spending all of your precious time just working (haa? correct correct!!).
What are you most afraid of:You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear (No Comment).
Who is your true self:You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice (waah..dasat2..hahaha).
People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues (zat so?). Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve (I humbly agree..huhu).
Test taken from here.
How great is Allah.
He created the universe, which revolves according to His will, unaffected (in a bigger aspect) by our insignificant (relatively) being.
How great is He, The One who created the universe which moves beautifully and continuously, even when we sleep.
How great is He, Who don't need any time to sleep nor rest. He, who always exists.
He, Who owns all the knowledge and powers.
And we, are His servants, who strive to even know ourselves.

There's a story of this guy, who was approached by this beautiful young lady. He was then asked, in a provocative way (somewhat..hehe), "Why tudung? Not all the 'tudung'ians (i made up this term :p) are good. There're loads of them who were as bad or even worst than those who didn't wear them" (wallaweh~). This guy looves~ givin analogies. To him, it shows the extent of his understandings towards the situation.
He somehow remembered an analogy given by brother Shah Kirit in a talk he attended while he was in college. A brother asked brother Shah Kirit, "Why a good non-muslim, who lives his/her life sometimes better than a muslim, being the best ever friend one could ask, the best ever kid parents could ever dream of, and being such a good human being, be sent into hell, while he/she's only slack was JUST not acknowledging the deity of Allah and Muhammad as His messenger?"
Brother Shah Kirit replied (summerised version :p):
"There's a person who saved a big chunk of her salary in a bank account for the benefit of her future. Who each and every month tried her best to discipline herself to keep her budget tight. Who endured the hardship of living with small expenses, just for the sake of a bright future. She deposited the money each and every month, and never missed a single month to do so. By the time she wanted to withdraw the money, to enjoy her savings, to her shock, her bank account was empty. "What's the problem?" she asked. Well, it's eventually came to her knowledge that the account she used to deposit the money, was not hers. All these years, she put the money into a wrong account!! How then could she enjoy the money she painstakingly saved..rite?" (*ignore technical issues from this analogy :)). The person in this story, couldn't use her savings, instead, suffered the consequences, JUST because she put her money into a wrong account.
Back to the issue of aurat, with a bit of twist from the analogy (my version :p..yosh!!):
"There's a person who wanted to save her money into a bank account. She created an account with a bank of her choice. Like most of the people (including me..), she hardly read the terms and conditions. "As long the moneys are safe" she thought, so do most of us :p. Unlike the previous story, she make sure she put the money into the right account. Sometimes, she saved more than any of her colleagues do. By the time she wanted to withdraw the money, she was shocked when she recieved her bank statement. She looked at the bank statement with mixed feelings, as the figures printed in the paper was much less than what she expected to gain. She read a letter attached to the bank statement:
"We are sorry to inform that your money has been deducted every month to pay the penalty fees as you keep on breaking the terms and conditions of our bank.""
1) Do remember to choose the right bank.
2) Do remember to save in the right account.
3) Do read and understand the terms and conditions of the bank of your choice.
4) Try our best not to break the terms and conditions, as the consequences will be faced by, well, none other than us.
Cheers :D :D.
