Friday Already Eh?

Assalamualaikum!


Hey Hey Hey it's already Friday! :D



Googgle


     Good day isn't it? It's raining here. Ever since I came home, I remembered that it has always been raining. I like the chill of the rain, the smell of the rain and also the memory that it brought me back. Finally, today, which is Friday, which is just a day left before I'm going back to campus, I finally succeed to bring myself to do the assignment *clap clap. I was thinking to put all of the effort yesterday but then my sister played a good movie. Can't...resist...the temptation...must....watch....it. So yeah, I kinda wasted yesterday with a good movie, watching TV, sleep and went Facebooking. How I wish sometimes I had the feeling to do the assignment once I got one. Sometimes I do imagine, how things will be like if I just try to be good. Like...


  • Doing assignments once I got them
  • Doing extra revision of the subjects that I learned that day
  • Wash my laundry on time by hands no need to waste money on machine
  • Always keep my study table and locker neat and tidy
  • Less Facebooking
  • Spend my money wisely
  • Go bed on time
  • Wake up early in the morning don't have to rush for the bus
  • Exercise, exercise, exerciseee!
  • Be nice to everyone

Yada yada
Bla bla bla
Haha
I WISH

     Wow, the good and cranky me. Cranky? Whatever. Okay, I'm going to start doing my assignments. Hah, baru nak buat?!? Err, yeah. I like to procrastinate. WAHAHAHA XD  You know, there is a LOT to do. Will I be able to get them done before tomorrow? How about literature? You haven't touch the papers yet. And also grammar. And, and, you also haven't prepare the slide for L&S class. What about the reading test after mid-sem break? And, and other subjects? Did you do your revision? Oh, and the assignment that you need to go to school and interview people, when are you gonna do it? And the UPU form, when are you gonna do it? The USM form? And, and, and... Arghhh *scream and panic!

You know,
It's hard to change.
It really is.
*sigh

Arif said that I am shy and have multiple personalities. Multiple personalities people! :/
Pasrah jelaaaa *cry alone in a corner

Oh my it's already 9.30. Ahhh, buh-bhye! *rushing

Gone for good.

Trust

I learned a thing.

YOU DON'T JUST EXPECT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND YOU.

     That's why sometimes I feel that it's pointless to give excuses though sometimes you have a very very very good and unavoidable reason. 

Two probabilities 
- one will keep doubting your excuses and accuse that you are giving an excuse
- well, another will accept it and try to understand.
Case number two, is VERY RARE. Usually your closest friends and family.





What do I expect? I hardly take excuses too :P so...

DON'T YOU EASILY PUT YOUR TRUST ON SOMEONE.

It's better to be hurt by the truth than to gain satisfaction from the lies. 
(David Allan)

What a life.

A Slap Of Reality

     Generally, I've been spending my holiday doing everything except none of it got to do with my assignments. I suddenly realized that today is already Wednesday and I only have like four days to finish ALL of my assignments. Assignments that have me waking up in the middle of the night and a scary thought would run through my mind that I may won't be able to finish all of them referring to my past history regarding them. Shortly, yes, I'm lazy. But of course, after that I just go back to sleep. Duh. In the middle of all this chaos of paying the college fee, filling up all the forms to apply for degree and buying the upu number for that and yada yada, I still find myself unmotivated. Ughhh. 


     Today, when I finally said to myself that, "Hey Nia Ilemor, you're gonna get it done by today!" I've been slapped by the reality. I'm in a big problem. A problem that may stop me from doing everything regarding to my assignments, a problem that may bring me an avalanche of nothingness that will land straight on my brain, literally. Oh my, I can't bring myself to write a good and proper English sentence. I constantly worry about my grammar, I always find mistakes in my translation even after I had a double check on it and I even had to use googgle translate to translate the word 'menumpang' :O  What is wrong with me? Somebody, help me! I just want to get over all of this. Ahhhhh! *scream and panic!

Do you think you are hot?
Yeah, the weather in Malaysia is kinda hot but now that it's 'winter' and I'm drinking a cuppa hot cocoa. Does that makes the answer yes? XD

Update the wallpaper that you are using now?


The story behind this wallpaper?
Kisuke is chasing Ichigo. Aren't the cute? No? Okay fine.

The last time you had pizza?
Err, last night? or is it last week? Maybe last month. Well, I guess it's last year. *shrug

The last song you were listening to?
If This Was A Movie by Taylor Swift.

Nahhh.

Okay dah, :)

Long Time No Type

Assalamualaikum.


Warning: This post is a total boring mumbling

Ohhh, sem break is here! I'm FREE!!!

Oh-allowance-is-in shocking face! 

 Ahhh, loads of assignments!!!


Cak ku cak! Hai people :D


     It feels like ages since I wrote here. Fuhh fuhhhh *blowing dust Uhuk uhuk. The fact is that, I have been pretty busy last week. With Islamic Week, reading assignment to be submitted, classes' tasks, debate practice and whatnot, I don't really have time to blog and I don't really know what to blog about. So, for Irdina Syamimi Alias, I think I'll update a post. Aww, aren't I the nicest friend/blogger? HAHA. 


     It's sem break now. The allowance is in my bank, ka ching ka ching! I'm home but with loads of assignments. Oh, I couldn't be happier! :D Okay that's a lie. I love the money part but who likes assignment during sem break? So to remind myself not to overjoy this 'looooong' sem break, I'll make a list of what I have to do.

1. Writing graded assignment 1
2. Prepare the slide for Listening and Speaking assignment
3. TED 072 
4. Think of the brief ideas for final drama
5. Granma Grammar
6. Find the information for Islamic class's presentation
7. Prepare for the upcoming tests 

     Oh, I have made a list! *pat in the back. But, will I ever complete the list before this 1/1/2011? *shrug. Don't know don't care. HAHA. Okay, I do care lahhh. I don't really like number 7. Gotta prepare for like what, ermm, 6 or 7 subjects? Oh, I looooooove studying. Really, deeply, madly in love with it. Duh, who are you kidding at? And you still have to get the assignments done? Will I ever have time to go out and have fun? Oh no. *panic voice.  Okay calm down. *breath in, breath out. *cough. Huh. Irony, I would have to put my face before the books and read them but I didn't bring them home except for one. Err, what book was it again? HAHA. 


     I remembered last sem, yes, first sem. We also had tests coming up right after mid sem break. So, I literally stuffed my luggage full of books with a determination that I will hit ALL the books before I got back to campus the following week and aced all the tests! Sounds cool huh? Hah, kidding me. I didn't even touch the book. Not even one and I ended up studying last minute. As always. So taking the lesson from my experience, which my TED 072 lecturer would say, is a part of cognitive theory, I only bring one book home and the book would be lucky enough if I even realized that I'd bring it home. Okay, I still know that I have a book in my bag, but I couldn't bring myself to remember what book is it. Uhh, uhh *thinking real hard. Okay, lame, stop.


     To the people of U.S (UiTM Sekilau) and U.K (UiTM Kuantan) and any students who are in the middle of sem break, have a blast sem break holiday. Forget the assignments and go have fun! Okay, that was a joke. Just a joke okay. Oh, what a real mumble. Again, after leaving blogger world such a looooong time, I found myself thinking stumbling for words, worried worrying about grammatical errors and reading again and egein again for spelling errors.  And this blogger is learning, TESL? -_-"  Be nice to me, don't criticize my English publicly, I'm just a kid! *run and hide in closet.


Okay bye.

Indecipherable

     There are times when he will feel absolutely nothing. Empty may not be a right word to describe this as it conveys a deeper message than the definition of the emptiness itself. Sometimes, in some parts of his life, an indescribable, unfathomable and undecipherable feeling will come, settling in a chapter of his life in a way which he don't even understand. Whatever the impetus is, he will  never be able to identify it accurately. Feeling this, even having a meal which may be a daily part that he always look forward everyday seems like a hassle. Watching a favourite show would turned out to be the playing screen staring at his smooth clueless face. In times like this, he don't bother much to talk much or maybe not at all. He wouldn't bother much to do anything but still, the responsibility that he held kept him going. Just like that. He kept on living through the miserable days, telling himself that this will past, sooner or later.


     As weeks passed by, he still had the feeling. It is as if, living in a world of his own. Other people are just like another extras in a film. Insignificant one. A film where he is the leading role but with no storyline, no dialogue, no heroine and no other leading roles. Just him. Only him. Living in the world by himself. Though life gets him in the hardest way beyond any expectation to survive, he still does. 
     "Tell me, how to feel good?" Silent. 
     "Tell me, what do I do to feel better?" Silent again. 
     "Tell me, please..." 
It doesn't even sounds like a plea to anyone. He doesn't even talk. It sounds more like he was talking to himself, trying to find a solution but never did he take the questions another step further. He just left them hanging there. Solemnity filled the air. Again, he doesn't even care to care much for he was confident, that this feeling, will fade away. Yes, it will. Of course it will and when it does, never will he feel the same way again.




Don't tell me you know how much it hurts, because even I don't know how to weight the feelings on scale.

Ho Yeah!





     Getting in sem 2, I couldn't think of anything else except scoring better grades. Nerd much eay? Haha. I take it pretty seriously as it is a responsibility, towards my family. A family that has been rooting for me no matter what. It is not easy. To maintain it is a thing, to get a better one, is another thing. Well, that's just how life is eay? When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Thinking about the fact that sem 2 which is my last one here is tougher, I have once thought about leaving Debate Club since it needs commitment. A lot of commitment. But then, after I went to IV the very first weekend of Sem 2, I come to think about it again. How shallow my knowledge is about this whole thing, how stupid I look when I don't know anything. I decided that I should learn more and here I am. I'm staying.


     It's not going to be easy. With loads of assignment, study, reading task, movie going, YES sale and yada yada, how am I going to cope with everything? The fact that I'm the type of person who procrastinates, lazy and oblivious kinda scares me myself. haha :P  Sem 2 makes me think a lot more than usual. But I don't even know what I'm thinking about. People's perspectives scares me more. I hope I will not lose focus. Oh Allah, guide my steps. Don't let me go astray. I'm living a scary world of today. I just pray that I'll stay this way. Or maybe even better. Sem 2, seriously, please be nice to me. Just three simple goals, I hope I can pull it off purrr-fact-ly. Forget Muet, think of this first. Gonna enjoy this sem better. Yup. I will :)


p/s: I miss you so much!

Sem 2

Three Simple Objectives.

Better grades.

Better shape.

Be good in debate.

That's all.

Begin Again


Assalamualaikum. Hello people.

Done packing, done tidying up, done with the hectic journey to Kuantan. DONE. 

"How's sem 2?" 
......................

     So far everything is unpredictable. My classmates are unpredictable. My class's timetable is unpredictable and the bus's schedule is unpredictable. Or maybe it's just me, trying to find a way to familiarize myself with this new life. Kinda. Again. It almost felt like going back to Sem 1. New residential place, new class, new classmates and new timetable. But still the good old friends and people :) How challenging is it? My roommates are all in the same one class that differs than mine. 4B versus a C =.="


Unsheathing the sword of patience and focus for Sem 2. I wish it works as simple as this.

     Not having even one roommate who is in a class with me is pretty challenging. Who would wake me up when I have early morning classes and they don't? I hope I won't miss the bus. Haha :P  No (roommate.classmate) to ask about assignments or class schedule because I am obviously pretty forgetful and oblivious to things around me. If I am lucky enough, there will be IV about by the end of the week and I haven't done with reading. Great. I really hope things will go just fine because so far, I don't really like with how my mind is reacting to this. Assimilation. Huh. Please stay positive oh me.

     So far, everything is just fine. I only need to get myself get used to this new environment. I got a feeling that though we have many things changed around here, this won't differ much from how it was. Just mundane. There's a good and bad side to everything right? I hope it's true. Let's just see how it will go. I know it's gonna be good. It has to be good. It better be. I'll get used to this just like I always did right? In the end of this semester, I will not have myself regretting for anything. I will try to pull this off. I will :)


Hello Semester Two. Please Be Nice To Me. 

Last sem in Foundation, last sem here. I can only promise that I'll try. I still remember. I always am. Still keeping the promise, no matter what. This I promise you :)

Breaking Up With Sem Break

     One month back, having a one month sem break without friends to hangout with is totally boring! But now, just one more day to go back to Kuantan, I felt like I haven't had enough break yet. HAHA. And why is that so huh? But anyway, it is what it is. Sem 2 is here. What choice do I have? Can I have more break? Everybody's home, except Mr.A but I still wanna spend my holiday with them! This is just so not fair :(  Why do I get sem break when people don't and why do they got sem break when I don't? Okay nia.ilemor, don't put a question mark on that though this is a parliamentary democracy nation. Let's go back to enjoyenjoy study mood >.<


Huchi huchi! me want rest more like maow maow >.<

     Last night I skyped with Mr.A  and I thought that his face looks like when Mr.Hamster eats kuacikuaci or veggieveggie or whatever it is and put them in his mouth making his cheeks looked full. 


Mr.Hamster eats veggieveggie


     He fired back, "Ewah ewah, sedap tehh oyak ko aku, aku kelih muko mung tuh koho bulat. HAHA" *use Google translate for better comprehension* Ouch. That kinda hurts =.=" Thank God you're my brother. Haishhh. Okay fine, I'll go pack my things now. Sorry Mr.A but I really think that your face looks like Mr.Hamster eats veggieveggie as in the picture. But no worries, you still look good :) (err, kalau tipu sikit takpe kan?) My oh my. See nia.ilemor? Mr.A is right. Look what has sem break did to you! I don't wanna have hamster's cheeks though it's very cute but one month is more than enough. Ouhh, tata TV, tata wireless connection, tata nice pretty morning view, tata refrigerator, tata washing machine. Tata titi tutu, I'll be missing you! Hye, it rhymes! :P  Oh, it's already sem 2. Last sem for TESL foundation programme *sobsob* Hey, what's up with that sad mood? Okay, back on track, Hello Sem 2! :D

Oh Cammie !

Assalamualaikum!


     Having this camera is one of my biggest wish. Oh, I wonder when can I have one of these? >.<  When I type MINE, then it's MINE, no share share. HAHA. This thing is not as cheap as cakelat kedberi you know. Well, not for me =.="  Ka ching ka ching $$$$ !


Canon EOS 60D

     I'm not really a camera savvy person. I don't even know much about cameras but I do know this is the latest member in the Canon EOS family and it produces great pictures! I always wanted to learn the techniques on how to snap good pictures. Pictures that tell stories but maybe snapping me is enough. BWAHAHA. *Oh, perasan lagi :P  I know it's not easy to be a good photographer and to produce good awesome amazing pictures but I would really want to give it a try. Of course it needs knowledge, skills and talent. The fact that I am a lazy homosapien doesn't help at all. I don't even have a good camera to begin with. But then, having a good camera is not enough, you need skills. Haihhsshh =.=" 


     But you know, if you are really good in this, I mean really good, you can take photos for weddings. Oh, that sounds like me. Duh. I know people who are about my age and working as part time photographers during holiday. Can you hear the sound? Can you smell it? $$$$ Ka ching, ka ching $$$$ . HAHA. Oh, of course money is not everything but everything needs money *eh, apa kaitan?* But anyway, when I was blogwalking, I found this blog about a photographer and I found a cute picture. I don't know why, but I think this froggie is super duper cute *serious! People, meet Mr.Brown Froggie :D  Will I be able to have a chance to catch pictures as cute as this? >.<


     Oh, don't you think this is such a cute little creature? Unique isn't it? Oh cutie cutie little froggie! I was wondering what kind of frog is this so I asked abah, 

     "abah, ni katak spesies apa?"
     
"Oh,ni lah katak melompat"

   =.="
Okay, now I know.

foot.note: bud bud! I'll be waiting :D

No need tutorial, he posed naturally. It comes naturally. Kan abam? :D

Abam: These are my brothers. They're on their way to pose just as well as me. They're doing well aren't they? :P

Dedicated To Mr.Muet

I felt like singing to my dear Mr.Muet.


Come one, come on don't leave me like this.
I though I had you figured out.
Can't breathe whenever you're gone.
Can't turn back now.
I'm haunted.

Somehow, I think the lyrics Haunted fit Mr.Muet perfectly.

I need luck. I really do.

Sample Report

     Although it's a little bit late, but I guess it's better late than never. This is a sample question 1 of Muet and a sample answer.




Click for better view


     As you can see, the A is Analysis and S is Synthesis (as I pointed out in my last post) That is how we form the A and S structures. Kinda.It wrote there, safe intro. The student missed one thing, which is to conclude/analyse the graph generally. He should wrote for example :
 Generally... (and then make a general overview)


     The mistake here is that, this student separate his analysis. If he put the comparison in a sentence, it would be synthesis. And also, he didn't point out his conclusion till the examiner took the last paragraph as content. To be on the safe side, just write, as a conclusion/to conclude etc. Write more synthesis for better marks. Compare the data in a sentence.


     Generally, it is very hard to get band 6 for Question 1-Writing The Report. A band 6 essay would have to be one that have no mistakes at all. Flawless and perfect. Now that's Band 6 but it's not impossible ;)  It turn out to be that many students didn't know that Question 1 is writing a report. It has always been like that. But I didn't know whether if the format would change. Question 2 is more like a usual essay.


16 hours to go >.< Good Luck!

Meet Mr. Listening

Assalamualaikum! Howdy people? :D


     One word to describe now: lethargy. Today has been pretty busy, went to miss A's house for a little hangout study group from about 11 till 2. Settled unsettled business and got home at about 3. Then, after 4 we had to get to madam S's house for our last meeting. Phew! Dropped by miss N's pizza house and when I got home, gotta go to my aunt's house. Ada eat-eat :P  Then, now when I got home, quickly online and trying to get this post done. Okay, that's introduction. Haha XD 


Cut the crap and let's get to the crux nia.ilemor!

     Okay, Mr. Listening is pretty busy so we will only meet 'him' for about 30 minutes. 30 minutes. For Teslians, it is more like our TSL 021. Just slightly different. It has three parts. 
Part One : (1-8) 8 questions, 8 marks. 
Part Two : (9-14) 6 questions, 6 marks. 
Part Three : (15-20) 6 questions, 6 marks. 
*this info is based on MID MUET 2009 Paper. Don't rely on it since I don't know whether it has the possibility for any changes or not.


RULE NUMBER ONE: READ THE RUBRIC

     Beware of these rubrics: for example, NOT MORE THAN THREE WORDS. Okay seriously this is like so important because once you break the rule, your answer is considered wrong at that very moment you write the answer more than it instructs you to. If the rubric says three, than three or less words than that it is and if the rubric says five, then five or less than that it is. The main point is, don't write your answer more than the rubric told you to. There's no such thing as half marks or whatsoever. See, Mr. Muet is soo jual mahal kan? =.="

     Between the three parts, I would say Part 3 is a little bit harder. But don't worry, you can pull it off just fine if you listen well :) You know, for every single question, the examiner would have like more than 1 answer. Up to 8 answers maybe, depending on the question and you need not necessarily write the answer as exact as what you hear. For example, the speaker said: 
     "....at first we refuse to have the programme since it costs money and it is not a top priority..."
The question asks: The board was not keen on having the programme. What were the reasons?
What would you answer? Your answer could either be:

-It costs money (as exactly as you hear)
or
-costly
or
-Expensive
or
-Not cheap
or
-Costs more


     Maybe in a question, the speaker mentioned about amenities but it happens to be that you kinda not sure how to spell that right. You could use facilities. As long as your answer brings the same message, then that would be fine :)  What happen when you spell it wrong? There's two possibility. It could be wrong OR it could be right. For example, the answer is MUET. 
Case 1: you accidentally spelled MUTE. 
Case 2: you accidentally spelled MUAT.
In case 1, it is wrong because the word MUTE bring another meaning in English. In case 2, the answer is right because the word MUAT has no meaning in English. Weird right? I know.


     When you write your answer, be careful of your syntax. Yes, it matters. It doesn't really concentrate on grammar but your sentence have to MAKE SENSE. For example: 
Answer: Have candidates to reapply - the syntax somehow sounds wrong because of the word 'have'. The word get sound better. The word have kinda clash with the need of the question. You know, that kinda syntax. 


     Also, be careful of objective questions. tricky bad questions >.<   There's this question where the option of answers are all right but you just have to choose the best. The same goes for reading. Well, kinda.


How Will The Exam Goes Like?

     Of course, the audio will be repeated twice. For every part, it would be repeated twice. The first one is to answer the question and the second one is to check your answer. But sometimes, the audio is pretty fast that when you are still writing the answer for a question, it already mentions about the answer for the next question. No need to worry, just go on writing the answer, cover it up back on the second play of audio. If you're trying to catch up with both two, you might end up having incomplete answers so be careful. When you first get the paper, ONE MINUTE will be given for you to read the question. Then the audio will be played and then repeated once again. Then you would move on to Part 2 and then Part 3.


     Personally, I think the listening part will be a little bit challenging. First because it is held in a biiiiiig hall, next to the hall is a buuuuusyyyy road. And the audio is sometimes confusing. I can only dig my ear and pray for everything to be alright. And also, to cover it up with other papers *shudder* Okay, I think that's all. Hope this helps, break a leg :D
