Just Another Day

Assalammualaikum.
I feel like writing a lot today so, just bear with me...
Continue reading if u have a lot of time, if not, come back later when u're free k!
=P

While I was Driving
I started my morning like usual, waking up for Subuh, online a while before getting ready to go to IMU.
I was stucked in the jam but as i was early for my class, i wasnt in a rush so my mood wasnt spoiled by the jam.
But my mood was spoiled by other reckless, selfish drivers.

Jeez! They simply cut queue and pretend innocent...
I was queuing up and suddenly a van overtook me from the left and cut the Q.
How dare he.. That's so unfair.
And that's not the 1st time i come across drivers like this, there are A LOT of them.
Dont they know that the road is shared by a lot other drivers?
Sometimes i memorised all the plat nos of the selfish drivers and many times i thought of publishing their plat nos in this blog but i did not.
I am not angry to the extent to tell the whole world who these ppl really are.
It's just that i hope drivers out there, PLS DO NOT SIMPLY CUT THE QUEUE.
Other ppl hv been queuing up for a longer time. Sometimes their irresponsible act results in the car behind them missing the green light.
And that's very unfair..
The car which cut the Q actually owes A LOT to the car(s) that missed the green light because of what he did.
This is not a game where the best car wins, it's all abt respecting other ppl and taking care of the road safety.

A Riddle

While i was driving too, i received an sms from my uncle (not the lawyer uncle).
The msg was:-

"Use 2 digits only to give the largets number... Salam"

Huh? So I asked back if this is a riddle but he said "No, it's math"
I tried a lot of answers: 99, 9 to the power of 9, 9 exp 9, 00 and so on..
But none of it is right.
My whole morning was tickled with the maths riddle.
Given a riddle from my smart uncle, and if i cant answer it, i'll be ashamed of myself.
I spent every free time i have to figure it out.
Even asked my batchmates and they asked their friends and their friends asked their friends.
By the end of the lecture i think half of the auditorium know the riddle but none come up with an answer yet.
So my dear brilliant readers, u think u hv the answer for the riddle?
I managed to answer it after lunch.
What a relieve!

During Lecture

I can say i was a bit stressed up during the 2 hrs lecture because of my divided attention.
I cant forget the riddle but at the same time i need to focus on the lecture.
And one thing i really dislike abt studying in auditorium is the does-not-care attitude displayed by the students.
There are a lot of students who came in late for the lecture.
If it's only one or two, it's still acceptable but at one point, abt 5 minutes after the lecturer started talking, 10-20 students will rush into the auditorium, making sound with each of their step, walking to their seats, sit down, open their bag, find their lecture notes, and then settled down.

Some of them were even talking while walking!
And the lecturer continued with her teaching because there are not enough time to waste.
It's really a disturbed environment, every morning.
During my A Level years, we studied in a classroom.
Students do not dare to come in late because if they do, they'll have to make a "grand entrance" and it's embarassing! And some lecturers will ask the stdnt on why is he late. But in an auditorium, the situation is just different.




Skills Centre


One thing that have been disturbing my mind these 2 weeks is my Skills Centre session this Friday. All stdnts in IMU will have that session every fortnight and we were supposed to sharpen our skills in interacting with patients, doing physical examinations etc etc. Basically it's the practical bit of the medicine course.
But my session last 2 weeks was not pleasant.
The lecturer was very fierce, emphasising that he is a blacksmith.
And he's gonna fry us, shape us, put us on fire, do everything he could to mould us into a good, sharp, responsible warrior sword (he meant doctors).
And he talked abt various types of fever.
Fever with acute onset, fever with fluctuating temperature, fever when the temperature fluctuates in days, in hours. And all these fever brings different meaning.
Each type of fever is associated with different diseases.
But i just couldnt find any further info on what he said.
I managed to scribble some of the sentences he mentioned but, to me that alone is not enough.
And this week, i'm afraid he'll ask me and my group member similar Qs.
Or perhaps he'll just ask what he unofficially taught us last 2 weeks.
And i havent even revise that!

Passion

Today I talked with one of my PBL group member, Tay.
I just got to know that he has a very burning passion for photography.
He showed me various pictures from the photography magazine he had in hand.
And he explained the meaning of each picture to me, with an unbeatable amazed tone.
Although the conversation did not increase my passion towards photography at all but it made me think, ppl can be very passionate in something in his life.
And sometimes, this passion seems just illogic to some other ppl.
Another friend of mine asked why am i so passionate in this Palestinian issue.
My reply was
"because they had been done injustice. And we shdn't be keeping ourself silent."

Well, perhasp he wasnt convinced with my answer but still, it's my passion.
Nobosy can do anything abt it.

Car Wash

On my way back home, i dropped by a petrol station to wash my car.
And one of the worker (looks like an Indian) took my car key.
I dropped my remote battery in the car once, and i havent find it since then. So i wanted to warn the worker that if they saw the battery, do not suck it into their vacuum machine. I need it back.
So the conversation goes:

Me: Saya ada battery dlm kereta, nanti jangan vakum ye...
Worker:
Ha....? Ok ok... (But with a very inconvincing facial expression)
Me:
Awak tau cakap bahasa melayu x?
Worker:
Kakak? Kakak?

Sweat...! He's not local. No wonder he doesnt understand me.
After some signal language, he pointed to his colleague.
So i asked the same Q, "Awk tau ckp melayu x?"
Then the man pointed to another friend. Haiz...
There was a chinese man waiting for his car to be vacuumed. And he laughed seeing me trying to communicate with the workers.
So i asked the third man the same Q;

Me: Awk tau ckp bhs melayu x?
Him: Tau tau...

At last, Malaysian!
So, he said ok after i explained abt my battery and he gave me a convincing face.
But at the end, i still cant find the battery.
Either they sucked it in or they did not vacuum the car thoroughly.
Haha..

Radio Antenna

I need to bring all readers to a few months back scene.
I parked my car under a tree, a short one.
And while i was driving out of the parking, reversing my car, suddenly i felt my car being heavier.
As if something is stopping my car from moving, and the force came from the roof.
I felt weird but i continued pressing the pedal and moved my car out of the parking space.
At that time i was in Shah Alam sect 18, in front of Giant.
Abt 50mins later, I reached home and as i walked out of my car i saw a disaster.
My radio antenna was lying flat on my roof!
It broke..! But there was still some attachment but, it cant function anymore.
And it was very hideous.
So I decided to rip it apart and i was left with a very short 1/10 antenna on my roof.
And then my bro came, he unscrewed the whole antenna and my car roof was naked.
And it remained naked for months.
I then stopped listening to the radio.
But that wasnt a problem because i had the device which i can plug into the socket in the car, and put my pendrive in so that i can listen to the songs in my pendrive.
And i survived with that device until few days back.

Few days back, the device (i forgot what is it called) lost its function.
Cant be used anymore.
So i need to revert back to radio to get the least bit of entertainment every journey i took.
And it was making me fed up to listen to songs half here half there. Know what i mean?
I mean, the transmission is very bad because there is no antenna! So sometimes i can hear the songs, sometimes nothing intelligible.
So after washing car, i went to a car accessories shop in the nearest town.
And i was "Ohh.. So this is where those guys bought powerful speakers, sophisticated accessories, and modify their cars"
I was alone in the shop, well of course i was a bit scared but hey, it's not dark outside. I can still scream if something were to happen, Allah forbid.
So i met the salesman and he showed me two antennas.
One long and one short.
The short one was RM 78. Way out of my budget.
I thought it will cost less than RM20.
Then seeing my horror-strucked face, the man reduced the price.
He said he can sell it to me for RM55. Again, another salesman slashing off price like what EMO Bookstore did.
But it's still beyond my budget.
So i asked the price of the long one.
It was labelled RM38 and the cheapest the man wanna go is RM35.
I pleaded for M20 but he wont give in. I didnt bring enough money, I was not even sure if i have RM30 in my purse.
Then i asked RM10 reduction, from RM38 to RM28 and at last he gave in.
He put it on my car for me and when i was supposed to pay, i realised i have only RM17 in purse!
Then i remembered a RM10 note i slipped somewhere in my purse for emergency. Well, this is an emergency and i managed to find the RM10 note.
And i told the man i have only RM27. And i showed him my empty purse.
He laughed and said "ok-lah".
Lucky me...
So i went back home, my car washed, with a new radio cord and an absolutely empty purse.
Hahaha...

For the past few days

For the past few days since i came back from Atikah's hse, i hv been humming the Fire Burning song from Sean Kingston.

Somebody call 911
Shawty fire burning on the dance floor
Whoao


And this is all because of Harith, Atikah's cute nephew.
Hahaha.. He liked that song so much (perhaps it's his uncles and aunts that teach him to like it) that the song is always played in the house.
And it sticked in my mind till now.
But only those 3 sentences.
I dont know how to sing the rest.

I did a word count for this post. Up to the sentence before this, there are 1, 944 words!
Almost reached 2000!
And i took approximately an hour to compose this post.
Today i really feel like telling a lot of stories so, this is it.
Hope ur eyes are not tired yet.
=)

Thanks for reading!
Cheerio!

    Thanks for the lyrics!
    But it's kinda hard to match the lyrics with the melody, i hv a major problem with that so i'll just stick to that 3 sentences i know. Haha..

    Well, i hope i'll be able to answere better if anyone ask me similar Qs abt palestine again.

    I did not see $ signs in his eyes but i know for sure the sign is somewhere hidden behind his smile. Haha..
    Charm? No no no..
    It's just a sadden + horror-stricken + no-money face of mine that won the day.
    Haha..
