Clumsy yet Lucky

Most of the Homo sapiens has 1 bad habit when encounter homework, projects, assessments, assignments, reports, etc. The bad habit will be LAST MINUTE work!

This is what gonna happen if you always complete your work in the very very very last minute:
1. May not be perfect 100%.
2. As the time limit is approaching, you will simply do.
3. You'll take no care even if you feel it's incomplete.
4. Grammar and spelling mistakes everywhere.
5. Produce untidy and messy work.
6. Rush till early morning and no sleep, go to class with no strength.
7. Anxious to get low marks.
8. Gain low mark at the end of the day.

Ok, I admit that I'm one of the Homo sapiens that always do last minute work. It was the worst 'nightmare' that I ever faced. People always give excuses that they had no mood to do their work, until the very last minute, they will rush for it, is that the mood? I've rushed my project till Monday 2am, and ready to save a copy into my pendrive before heading to bed. Before that, I was cleaning the unwanted temporary files on my Desktop. Without anyone's notice, I didn't realise that my folder for my project has been selected. Guess what I hit on my keyboard, I hitted 'Shift + Delete + Enter'.

And wahlah, the 'nightmare' has just began. My heart was like gonna blow! First thing in my mind was, I asked myself to calm down, trying to convince myself so that I can recover it by using certain recovery softwares. Too bad, I can't recover it perfectly. Only manage to recover it for about 70%. The balance 30% I gotta redo it. My tables and diagrams were gone, my drawings were vanished. What to do? Rush again from S to Z (not A to Z, it's the balance 30%)!

Rushed till 4.30am and planned not to go to bed as I gotto get ready for class by 7am, no point for me to sleep. But too bad, the heavy cold rain outside has made me wanna sleep and resulted me to woke later by half an hour compared to normal waking time. And again, rush, rush to class, yet reached too early, ZzZz.

So to all Homo sapiens, please don't do last minute work. If you still refused to change such attitude, wait till you experience it.

Restless Celcom #1

My oh my, bandwidth limit for Celcom Broadband per month is 5Gb while Maxis Broadband is 3Gb. After you exceed the bandwidth of the month, your internet speed will slow down automatically until the following month, as the service provider will reset it once a month.

I, personally using Celcom Broadband in Miri for nearly a year. Think in the near way, 5Gb is kinda big. If you think further, 5Gb is nothing. This is what I mean, look at the image below which I 'print screen' it.

If you can't see and lazy wanna enlarge the image, I'll tell you what am I going to show.

Signal : HSDPA
Network : Celcom
Duration : 162:05:07 = 6.75 days
Volume : 7.4Gb

Ah well, I've on my broadband for 6.75 days streak without even thinking of restarting my connection or laptop. Once you restart, the duration will reset automatically. Now, currently, the duration is still on going. Assume 1 month contains 30 days. I exceeded the bandwidth within 6 days, so I'm gonna suffer for the following 24 days?

Oh well, from what can I conclude is that, I like the connection of HSDPA, reason? If I'm lucky, I can reach 2.0mbps+ for the download speed in the internet speed test. Try it out at www.speedtest.net for free. If in Miri the download speed can reach 2.0mbps, what about in Kuala Lumpur, since it can reach up to 3.6mbps. Gonna try once I go back for mid term break as I didn't bring it back last year semester break. In KL, my DSL connection may only reach 1.5mbps, maximum. Anyhow, the weakness of using broadband is that, it only emphasize on download speed, not upload speed, which means that if you play any online games, the ping must be high and laggy!

Anything else? It's my first time in my life, again, to on my broadband without stopping it! From what you saw in the picture above, the duration is 162:05:07, and now, the moment I'm typing it, is 162:36:44. I'll post the final image once I give up.

Earth Hour 2009

Turn off the lights as well as your computer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1st time in the world's history, Malaysia participated the 'Earth Hour' for 2009. There are totally 88 countries and more than 4000 cities joined the 'Earth Hour 2009'.

Ah, I believe that many residents especially in KL will support 'Earth Hour'. From what I saw last night in Miri, the housing area where I live, out of 10 houses, I think only 1 or 2 houses supported 'Earth Hour', disincluding me of course. No one gave it a damn about it!!!

Well, Malaysians, be supportive for next year!!! Just one hour, it won't kill you. You can die survive for 1 hour even without a candle as well. Safe mother nature as well as your electric bill! If you think one hour is not enough, go for 2 hours or so on, cheers. Do your own "Home Hour".

1st time in my life, I purchased some items online via eBay. Risky? Yes, that's what I wanna try. Tried to purchase some cheap stuffs and proved to parents who don't trust on purchasing items via internet. Within 1 week, I purchased 4 items and received 3 items so far within 24 hours after postage within Malaysia.

Item #1: 2 Ben10 Rubik's Cube, cost me RM24.50 with free postage, have not received so far.
Item #2: 1 Philip Turbo Bass SHE7850 earphone, cost me RM40 with free postage, original price RM79.90 on market, received within 24 hours from Johor, West Malaysia to Miri, East Malaysia.
Item #3 & #4: 2 pieces + 3 pieces of RM20 banknotes, cost me RM254 including postage, received within 24 hours from Miri to Miri.

So far all these 4 items were paid via Cash Deposit, MayBank. Condition? As good as what the seller stated. Gonna try using PayPal soon, how soon? No idea. Then, gonna try to purchase item(s) internationally. Believe it or not, up to you.

Beautiful Polymers

2.00pm till 4.00pm is the time for my group to attend Lab for Engineering Materials.

Today was the second Lab session after started 5 weeks of tuition(studies). The task for this second Lab was related to Polymer. Basically, there were 2 parts for this Lab, Part A was 'Resorcinol-Formaldehyde Resin' while Part B was 'Polymerisation of Methyl Methacrylate'.

As for the Part A, all we have to do was *let me copy and paste* stir 1.75 g of resorcinol into 2 mL of ~35% formaldehyde solution in a test tube. Add 0.25 g of oxalic acid into the resorcinol and formaldehyde mixture an stir well. If necessary, warm carefully over a steam bath. After a few minutes the reaction mixture will become very hot and copious amount of formaldehyde fumes will evolve.

As for the Part B, *let me copy and paste* place approximately 1.2ml of methyl methacrylate monomer in a test tube, add 0.02 g of benzoyl peroxide, stoppered the test tube loosely with cotton wool and heat in a boiling water bath. After 20 – 30 minutes, the liquid suddenly becomes very viscous and soon sets to a hard, colourless mass of polymer.

The reaction for Part A was SUPERB fast, don't know how should I describe the reaction and I had no picture to show. While the Part B took a lot of time, plus, my team failed the 1st attempt and resulted we need to repeat the same procedure for Part B. And at last, success, check the pictures below, it's Polymer!

Beautiful huh? It looks like crystal wasn't it? But you gotta know that, IT WAS STINK!!! Like what people always says, 'don't judge a book by its cover'. The smell is very nice harmful and may cause cancer! I accidentally smell it from a distance, OMG.

New Rubik's 360

As I get bored with my studies, so I spared some time surfing the net, doing some personal research regarding Rubik's Cube, for fun. I bet everybody knows what is Rubik's Cube, and guess what I found, yea, as what I stated at the title above.

Based on what I found in the net, Google for sure, Rubik's 360 is being released this year, 2009! Oh well, the inventor is Prof Ernő Rubik, as he is the inventor to invent mechanical puzzles such as Rubik's Cube.

Basically there are 3 spheres in 1 set of Rubik's 360. The biggest in size will be outside with few empty slots, then a middle in size of sphere located inside of the biggest sphere, and the smallest sphere will be located in the inner most. The inner most sphere contains 6 coloured balls. All we have to do is just to get the 6 coloured balls from the inner most sphere into the matching slots on the outer most sphere by shaking them through the middle sphere that has only two holes. Sounds fun?

This is how Rubik's 360 looks like.

Item can be purchased at the official site: http://www.rubiks.com/Shop/Products/Rubiks%20360.aspx

Note that, it has only ONE solution for the time being. Try to do some research about it.

2 nights in Long House

13 till 15 March: 3 days 2 nights, I spent my time at my cousin’s wife’s long house which located at Sungai Asap, Bakun, Sarawak with my cousin and his family. The distance from Miri to Sungai Asap is 267km, similarly from Miri to Bintulu, but the journey to Sungai Asap is 4 to 5 hours! Unlike the journey to Bintulu is just 2 to 3 hours! Reason? Holes everywhere, curving and winding roads all the way from Batu Niah to Sungai Asap.

On Friday, after my 4 hours straight, 3 lectures in a row with no break, I went back home right away, it was 12pm. After preparations were done, we made a move from Miri at 1pm. As estimated, we arrived at the long house within 5 hours.

1st time in my life, I did not bath for 3 days! Yea, I mean it, 3 days! Mainly because of the weather were cold and exist no water heater. Anyhow, I took a bath in the river nearby the long house on the second day. At the same time, we had a picnic by the river. Lucky us, we manage to get some fresh water fish, then we BBQ it on the spot.

Nothing further more I can type, couldn’t express the boringness enjoyments, LOL, anyway, here’s some pictures I would like to share.

Day 1

Image 1: Taken after arrival, 6.19pm. Look at the mist.

Day 2

Image 2 & 3: Taken once I awake, 7.47am. Look at the mist.

Image 4 & 5: The river nearby where we picnic & bath.

Day 3

Image 6: Taken once I woke up, 7.27am. Mist mist mist.

Image 7: Taken from 2nd floor of the long house, used PanoMan in my Mobile.

3rd day, we made a move to Miri at 3pm. Pretty miss there, gonna go there again someday.

Ohya, generally, there are 4 cellular services in Malaysia, which are, DiGi, Maxis, Celcom and U Mobile. Unfortunately, only DiGi is available at there, like what DiGi always says, “Time to Change, DiGi, Always the Smarter Choice” and “I will Follow You”.
