politics



I believe the Malaysian Government is doing great in some areas on national integration under the 1Malaysia concept; most recently by the condemnation of Utusan Malaysia by Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, Minister in Prime Minister's Department. He condemned Utusan Malaysia, an UMNO-owned newspaper of being racist and outdated, that the newspaper should start recognising that Malaysia is a multicultural country, not only for Malays but for others as well.

KUDOS!!!!!! ALL RESPECT FOR YOU!!!

I hope that the Malaysian government will continue its good governance without looking at creed, colour and/or religion , for example in the Herald case, the stand on minarets in Swiss [Malaysian government should be fair to Roman Catholics as well, as it took them 20 years just to build a church in Shah Alam, and its condition was that the church doesn't look like a church but a factory]. Fairness ?? Malaysian government, do your job well :)

09 holidays part [1]

Holiday has been filled with events, yet at the same time, filled with work.


I went to Penang for my cousin's wedding in November. It was on the 29th, a Sunday. It was seriously one of the most dramatic wedding I've been too as it was filled with much family drama. Like totally drama, right from the moment we reached Penang. Aunt Sheena caused a commotion by walking away, while we were out finding a place to have our lunch. There were many other arguments between my cousins with her bf, another with her husband. There were even 2 wedding cars on the day of the wedding. I followed the the entourage to Taiping to get the bride, then back to Penang. Being part of the bachelors, I had to so some humiliating stuffs;wearing girls underwear, drink milk from a baby bottle, and also passing from one end to another end a cold hard boiled egg in another bachelors pants. All in all,it was fun but really tiring as I travelled from Malacca-Penang-Taiping-Penang-Malacca-KL.


[More pictures of Penang trip to come.]

I went to Pavillion before Ipoh trip and met with Raam's cousin, a chef in The C. Club. Ate really good food and expensive at that.

As for last weekend, I went to Ipoh for a change. I was there mainly for the 20YAC dinner (20th anniversary) and dropped in for the 19th Nationals Lasallian Leadership Convention. Had some "trouble" but Kahon managed to keep it cool. I found out from the start but acted cool about it also. It was regarding my stay at LSC. So I stayed at Kahon's place instead. I enjoyed my time there as I managed to spend quite some time with Moira and Kahon, while getting to meet some Lasallian's that I've not been meeting for some months or years long. Moira brought me to Jusco to watch The New Moon, and dinner at a hawker stall near her place on Friday night. Saturday morning was spent alone, had breakfast at Ipoh Barat, with the famous Ipoh white coffee. Kahon did bring me out to have soya bean and tau fu fah?? Lunch was at KFC with Bro. Michael Kum and Moira. Dinner at 20YAC. As for Sunday, Kahon brought me to have breakfast, then off to LSC. After mass,I followed Moira to Ipoh Parade to get a picture frame. Rushed back to LSC thereafter to the train station. All in all, I am satisfied with my decision to go there. Manage to catch some cool pictures too ;p

lunch with Feli + politics


Yesterday(8/12/09; Tuesday)
Went to MV with Felicita to have lunch at SpaghettiFarm while my sample substrate was cooling down. We basically caught up a little before she went for SuperCamp in Negeri Sembilan, then home for Christmas. Talked about my relationships etc.
What caught my attention about what she said was, I might behave like a younger person, but think like someone much older. Well, coming from someone like her, I am utterly surprised. She herself sounds much more matured compared to me. Most people mistaken her age to be around 24-25 when she is only 22(same as me).
She told me to pray about things. Anything, everything, pray about it. Reminding me that it might sound so "cheezy" and all that but pray about it.
She was being a good friend. Thank you for your concerns, Felicita.


Politics

On another matter, I read from The Malaysian Insider dated 8 Dec:-
I am very disappointed with some Malay quarters who is being so extreme, radical, overzealous people. I think that their minds are so terribly distorted that even Communist seems not that bad. Have a look.

Already in the past, this group of radicals have protested using cow head(1), now the leader of these protesters have characterized Malays and non-Malays as first class and second class citizens. Reason being that before Malaysia was formed, this 'bolehland'(2) was Tanah Melayu.

One can only wonder, why even in this 21st century, mindsets such as this still exists. I study in a university filled with Malays. My laboratory supervisors are both Malays, my friends in my lab are Malays mostly, all of which are certainly most kind and thoughtful, what more friendly. All of us view each other first as friends, lab mates first; we never view each other by our race, colour, creed or religion.

What is more disturbing, this radical protesters do not even know how to differentiate race and religion.
"By questioning Malays supremacy, he is questioning the Sultan’s supremacy because he is the head of Islam," said Ibrahim.
Does this show how "wise" people err? Enough said.






footnote;
(1) Cow is a sacred animal in the Hindu religion. Initial protest with the cow head was to protest the relocation of a Hindu temple to a Muslim majority area in Shah Alam, Selangor.
(2) 'bolehland' comes from the slogan "Malaysia Boleh!" loosely translated as Malaysia Can! 'bolehland' is meant as insult or rather sarcasm where in Malaysia, everything and anything goes.

jokes

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad.'

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.


Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.


I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.


But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it' s not only the passion...Dad, she's pregnant.


Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.


Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.


In the meantime we will pray that science finds a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.


Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren.


Love, Your Son John



PS. Dad, none of the above is true.. I'm over at Tommy's house.


I just wanted to remind you there are worse things in life than the Report Card in my desk drawer.


I love you.


Call me when it's safe to come home.

recent past

Last Sunday,

Nicholas, didi and I went out for a movie. Was supposed to meet didi at church before going to DP for a movie... but I overslept. Fast forward.... Nic booked the movie already. I thought we would have some time to eat first [spend time] but too bad, we didn't. Nic and didi ate waffels and I had popcorn for my lunch.

The movie was Blood:the last vampire.

Movie review- to me... the review looks nice, the action was not bad... until the end.
Pretty ridiculous.
Anyhow, managed to spend some time with my beloved didi. Not what I planned but sufficient.
No closure though...

The week went past VERY fast and I didn't get to talk to my didi yet.
And well, seconds turned into minutes, minutes turned into hours, hours to days and now days turned to a week since that fruitful day.

Saturday has been... sweaty... since I lost my "virginity" to the freebie... :P
My friends and I played freebie in the MMU field. It was alright.

So now its Sunday. Hours from now I have to wake up to go to church. Hoping to see didi once again. Was rewatching Step Up 2 earlier on, then chatted with Nic followed by some reading on Psychology while listening to some music. This lyric struck me... especially after the words ..."you want somebody" ...by David Archuleta.

You're reaching out
And no one hears you cry
You're freaking out again
Cause all your fears remind you

Another dream has come undone
You feel so small and lost
Like you're the only one
You wanna scream cause you're desperate

You want somebody, just anybody
To lay their hands on your soul tonight
You want a reason to keep believing
That someday you're gonna see the light

You're in the dark
There's no one to call
And sleep's your only friend
But even sleep can't hide you
From all those tears

And all the pain and all the day
You wasted pushing them away
It's your life,it's time you face it
....
I realised that I have made didi an important part of my life. And I've made my world revolve around him. Sometimes I feel I try to hard. A lot of time I think wayyyy too much. I guess like in the song, I'm simply desperate to find meaning in my relationship with my didi. I'm simply desperate to find a reason to keep on believing.

Gestalt Psychology is true when psychologist saw that humans tend to see the bigger picture and not the individual parts. In addition, they saw the process of imposing meaning and structure on incoming stimuli as automatic and outside conscious awareness.

My conversation with Nic revolves too much around my brother. I should let go. Not what I believe in, but my over thinking. Here's a shout out to Nic for always being there, being the 'somebody' in my life, supporting my relationship with his best friend. Also to friends like Moira, for guiding me to see the individual parts of my life when things don't go my way.

I'm a desperado...
I guess we all are in some way or another ; just to feel important.

Are you a Physics major ????

Are you a Physics major?

Due to the enormous workload involved in physics classes combined with stress and lack of sleep, physics students often forget (either by accident, defense mechanism, or intentionally) what their major really is.

Thus, as a physics major, I took it upon myself to create a small list of indicators to help us all remember what we really are.

YOU MIGHT BE A PHYSICS MAJOR...

if you have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.

if you enjoy pain.

if you know vector calculus but you can't remember how to do long division.

if you chuckle whenever anyone says 'centrifugal force.'

if you've actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.

if when you look in a mirror, you see a physics major.

if it is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are working on a computer.

if you always do homework on Friday and Saturday nights.

if you know how to integrate a chicken and can take the derivative of water.

if you think in 'math.'

if you've calculated that the World Series actually diverges.

if you hesitate to look at something because you don't want to break down its wave function.

if you have a pet named after a scientist.

if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.

if the Humane society has you arrested because you actually performed the Schrodinger's Cat
experiment.

if you can't remember what's behind the door in the science building which says 'Exit.'

if you have to bring a jacket with you, in the middle of summer, because there's a wind-chill
factor in the lab.

if you are completely addicted to PhysLink.com.

if you avoid doing anything because you don't want to contribute to the eventual heat-death of
the universe.

if you consider ANY non-science course 'easy.'

if when your professor asks you where your homework is, you claim to have accidentally
determined its momentum so precisely, that according to Heisenberg it could be anywhere in the universe.

if the 'fun' center of your brain has deteriorated from lack of use.

if you'll assume that a 'horse' is a 'sphere' in order to make the math easier.

if you understood more than five of these indicators.

if you make a hard copy of this list, and post it on your door. If these indicators apply to you,
there is good reason to suspect that you might be classified as a physics major. I hope this clears
up any confusion.

Issues, religion

In Greece, it was reported that 1000 Muslim immigrants from Muslim countries marched through the city of Athens when a Greek policeman was said that have torn the Quran and trampled on it.

Respect should be given to ALL RELIGION to coexist. Respect should be given to ALL Holy Books. Respect is the foundation on which human vision of true peace rests. Therefore, on that
basis, the Greek policeman has err in his conduct as a government officer and more so as a human being.

However, this Muslim immigrants did not only congregate and have a peaceful demonstration. They destroyed several shop windows and also 5 cars. This bothers me. While ALL RELIGION promotes peace, the Muslim faithful seems to be ignoring this fact and acting like bullies and hooligans. These acts has over and over again tarnished the face of Islam. It is because of these people that Islam is seen and portrayed as a religion of terrorism. This clearly justifies, on the part of the rest of the world, our being "Islamophobia". It seems like where the is Muslims, there are violence and terrorism.

In truth, I do not blame human's shallow mindedness, 'rational deduction' or whatever you might call it because it does seem true. As for me, I think that Islam being a new religion and is fastest growing in our age is clearly going through what the Catholic Church has gone through over the timespan of 2000 years. The phase of 'becoming powerful and influencial' by the number of faithful [majority], and because there is no clear ONE 'administration' in Islam, politicians have over and over again influenced religion for their own benefit. This is no alien thing in the Catholic Church since before Renaissance.

What surprises me is the 'Christophobia' on the part of Islam at times to Islamize anything unislamic or Islamize anything that is Christian in nature. This attitute of "converting" is acceptable to me if we were living in the middle ages but I think people should mature already since we are in a modern technological booming age.

It is more surprising to me that even the secular West feels that way, that is it has to deChristianize its Christian roots and foundation using its 'philosophy' of separation of Church and State. I do agree that there is a need for the separation of Church and State as the Church CANNOT replace the State in its day to day administration. This does not mean that total "privatisation of religion" but the Church must concern itself with faith related administration, taking care of its flock, promoting 'faith in action' and helping her faithful to incorporate their faith into their daily living. The Church cannot replace the State as a secular institution, elected by the people for the people, to govern secular business and stately affairs.

More provoking is its double standard on Christianity and other religions namely Islam. While the West is deChristianizing, it shows no attempts to stop Islam from doing the same that the Roman Catholic Church has been doing all these while ; protecting Islam and hitting hard on its "philosophy" on free speech, freedom of religion etc. When the Roman Catholic Church attempts to speak out on issues, politicians goes on the defence and issues statements that is purely of hate. Just look at hot issues such as abortion, homosexuality, condoms, etc. This is certainly a troubled world.

I am not here to defend the Christian stand on things because it is not my intention to do so in this post but I myself do not agree with some teachings of the Church just yet, probably due to ignorance on my part. However, I try to be as open as I can to the Churches teachings, concepts and philosophy, the what's and the why's of the Churches teachings as the Churches wisdom is of 2000 years old, far surpassing any of our age. Not only that, the Churches teachings are a continuation of what Christ taught.

Coming back to the point, Islam in general, I believe promotes peace. It is people that influences history for their own benefit at the expense of ruining beautiful religions. In this modern technological age, I think Muslims have done SO BADLY in holding up and protecting its image as a peaceful loving religion. All this reminds me of a wise man's [Mahatma Ghandi] saying that sounded like 'Jesus is good but Christians are not' {not his exact words but has the gees of it }.

PERAK CRISIS; my ranting [2]

Today, justice has been served to the government of Perak Darul Ridzuan.
The high court of Kuala Lumpur has delivered justice when it pronounced that
Pakatan Rakyat Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin
is the
TRUE MB.
The BN government should be ashamed of itself for having displayed
undemocratic ways of power grab of the State Assembly
and also of the Perak state executive powers by
POLICE FORCE.
Shame on the police force for being impartial in carrying out its duty.
I am out for JUSTICE.
I am out for PEACE.
I am out for TRANPARENCY.
Saya ANAK MALAYSIA
Saya BANGSA MALAYSIA
Long Live Malaysia!
Daulat Tuanku!

PERAK CRISIS; my ranting


I am clearly saddened by the
UNDEMOCRATIC, CHAOTIC, FORCEFUL
power grab from the Barisan Nasional Government [that forms the federal government] in the state of Perak. First grabbing the seat of government of Perak and as of yesterday forcing and illegitimately upseating the Speaker of the House using police force.


More saddening is the Regent of Perak, who had waited for 5 hours in the VIP room did not do anything at all to stop the commotion that was going on in the house.
The government whichever is legitimate should call for a fresh poll returning the power to choose its government to the people, what more commonly called the "PEOPLE POWER".
Malaysian government should take heed from the countries surrounding us and how they are doing. Take a look at The Phillipines. They aren't doing too well and there are numerous black past of power grabs and also corruption there. Take a close look at Thailand. Riots have been going for years. Take a look at Indonesia. All these are our neighbours. We are better, be the "bigger man" BN government and call for a fresh poll!
There goes the 1Malaysia concept of our newly elected Prime Minister with these undemocratic power grab.
I am just starting to believe that just maybe what my Prime Minister is saying is what he really wants : for a BETTER MALAYSIA

REMEMBER PEOPLE OF MALAYSIA...
REMEMBER THIS AND TAKE HEED

JANGAN MUDAH LUPA

Remember this and bring this to poll in the next election and VOTE WISELY

MEDIA OOOOO MEDIA.... DONT BE BIASED!!!

Here I insert a picture taken at Science Faculty of University Malaya way back from the time when the UNDEMOCRATIC POWER GRAB had taken place...and when UM [ WHICH SUPPOSED TO BE APOLITICAL] organised a demonstration supported by the VC and its deputy to Sultan Azlan Shah, the Sultan of Perak.

Experiments that I've done :D [part 1]

Experiments I've done :D


basically viscosity experiment revolves around raising the temperature of the oil and see how fast the oil flows out of the apparatus.



the 2 experiments above revolves around light :D ... lolz .. light shines and readings are taken


theoretical physics laboratory- this experiment, we just construct the molecules


micro processor lab- learn programming... C , linux etc
FTIR- like those in CSI series. we put in the sample and from the results we obtain we can determine what the sample is
