Scholarship entry
Monday, October 15, 2007
Haha. Did the title misinterpret something of me? Yes it is.

It is not me who's trying to obtain a scholarship this year, it's my sister who is cracking her head what to write for her scholarship entry. The question is pretty simple. If I'm not mistaken, the question simply ask what is the subject you wanted to study ... why do you want... how relevant and write records of your leadership skills. That is the question printed the Chevening Scholarship entry form. And my sister is now trying to write in a few hours and submit it within tonight ... Oopps.. I don't think she did.

She has drafted her answer and I checked it. But to be frank I don't have the confidence that hers will attract the judges attention. It just lacks passion and determination of getting the scholarship. The judges never met its candidates before and the only way to pass on their message is through the scholarship entry. Imagine there would be thousands of entries ... and tonnes of answers swimming in the pool of selection. I told my sis directly why hers won't be selected and she is of course upset but it's better to hear the truth now then rejected isn't it?

She could try her luck but what's the point if your entry doesn't even have an everlasting impression on the judges. Ok .. we have all seen realities shows like Runway Project. How did the finalists get through? Same thing. The judges look at your design and pieces.

I'm not sure what did my other collegmates wrote for their scholarship entries but mine gave such an impact to one of the judges that she commented that she has never read an entry like mine before. I don't remember what she said because that was like 5 years ago... I only remembered my mum and sis looking at me with a small O when the female prof/judge commented that. Haha... I need to ask my friends what they wrote in their scholarship entry too...

I don't think it's hard to get a scholarship not because I got one before but because I'm a damn optimistic person. For me, if I want to get a scholarship, I need to be true to myself of why I want to get this scholarship and how can I contribute what I studied to my daily life. Answering those questions would also be my pledge of why I want to study the following course. And I still remember mine before I take my degree.

I just gave some of my ideas to my sister on rewriting the entry. And she was surprised that my head worked fast to link up the connections of why she should get the scholarship and her contributions should she get it.

Oh well I will salute her if she got shortlisted by writing her entry in 30 minutes while mine took one month to draft.

Nothing is impossible!

Missy Adventure
Sunday, October 14, 2007
Hang out with jolenesiah, nuttz and xboyz in Sunway Pyramid today. First time sitting down to meet the siblings hailed from Taiping. Had so much fun. Would hang out with them again in the future. We even volunteered to close one eye if nuttz wants to kill xboyz... would be happy if she bribed us ... Haha.

After they left for dinner with their parent. Jolenesiah and I went had dinner and went back to the new wing to see if we could grab something at this store called Lenges because everything there is 40% off the original price. Worth a try but I could not get anything. But jolenesiah got something and almost paid the wrong price!

While dinner we discussed something silly about a new storyline regarding some idiot person discovering the art of vampirism and then spreading this stupid act of vampirism to everyone on this earth until the only one human being is alive. So there goes our story.

So ... tiger .. when do we want to start writing for that?

Manga Marathon
Friday, October 12, 2007
Wow. Today is such a relaxing day for me.

Because I have been facilitating a manga guessing game, I have been doing research on manga. So it means I need to download and read a lot of manga. The manga pictures I posted were unknown to my players. That was because I have been taking from very unheard manga but with storylines that I like. Haha. And some of them are just happened to be in my hard drive. Haha.

I posted 2 more pictures today and they were easily guessed. So today I have been downloading a few manga to read and see what pictures can be used for the game. And also been rereading old manga that I have read many years ago.

It's also a good thing as I could update the manga database in myanimelist.net.

And unbelievable that I napped for 3 hours in the afternoon. And wormx2 called me to torture with his ice cream buffet trip.

I now have lots of manga to read in my laptop. Won't feel bored during the weekends.

Selamat Hari Raya. Maaf Zahir Batin.

Punishment is on your way...
Thursday, October 11, 2007
I was in the middle of my deep sleep when my mum interrupted it in the afternoon. It was 15 minutes to 2 p.m. Quite irritated because I was so sleepy and all I wanted to do was sleep, sleep and sleep and since I was in the Raya mood and mode as well ...

Mum was freaked out in the afternoon because someone had changed the position of the shoe rack. No one has ever changed the position of the shoe rack. No one. Mum's brain gone haywire and panic fumes her head. She asked me why would the shoe rack position been changed. Why would the shoe rack suddenly been so near to the grill door... as if I were some CCTV. I don't know.

I just said our house has been targeted by some idiots. But why the shoe rack? You want to break into my house with a shoe rack? Gosh .. that was what I was thinking when I woke up.

Mum talked to the neighbours. The neighbour on the end of my unit reported to my mum that someone has been stealing her husband's shoes. On the phone mum said nothing on the shoe rack has been stolen. I was just scratching my head. Would someone deliberately pull the shoe rack if nothing is interested on the rack? And what made the person not stealing anything?

I came home today and was quite relieved to hear mum saying "Nothing was stolen." The crime scene was untouched. Mum was pointing to the shoe rack and its proximity to the rack. When I laid my eyes on the rack my hiking shoes was missing.

MY HIKING SHOES WAS MISSING.

I was not really sad or in some gloomy emotions. I just feel what a waste of stealing my shoes. And thank god it's just NZD 13.90 from some shoe warehouse. In spite of that, it doesn't mean I would close one eye on stealing.

We all know STEALING is a crime. Who says that? Society and me because someone who loves us very much worked very hard to give us the money to fulfill our needs. And whoever is that person came to my house took away the gift and money my parents gave me. And that IS a crime itself.

Been murdered again and again...
Tuesday. 10.9.07 12:49 am
I started playing Last Chaos back after a long hiatus because it was just plain boring. All you do is kill and kill monsters to level up. A friend of mine in the game has reached up level 30 while my level is 19. Yes pathetic 19 and my healer character is leveling up much faster than my sexy sorcerer. Stupid sorcerer.

Because I was bored last friday, I played it again. Yea...

I have been playing these few days and I realised I have became a target for people to murder in the game for no reason. On Saturday, I was just running on the ground and somehow this stupid Human character swung his big axe on me and I died. What did I do? I was just standing and enjoying the river view. That's it. The next murder was my character running into the place of werewolf and this bloody rogue attacked me from behind. Coward. And I thought she must have accidentally hit me. Then I realised she was actually trying to kill me. So I ran back to the market place for shelter.

Last night I played again and was murdered again. My character was just sitting under a tree with my pet drake so that I could go to the restroom and found my character lying limblessly on the ground when I returned. This is stupid.

Stupid because I'm a bloody member of a guild called PEACEMAKER. Maybe that's why they killed me.

Boring
Saturday, October 6, 2007
Today is pretty boring after my aunt left to retreat to her own home.

I decided to do some data input data for the other nutang account. Done pretty much except I need jolenesiah to appear online.

We ate durian mooncakes this morning. Luckily mum took out the mooncakes because they are going to expire next Wednesday.

Decided to work on my short story. Tried to do some personality research and thought it was a hassle so ended up doing a test on what kind of thinker I am. The results is:

The Renaissance ideal

The leading thinkers of the Renaissance were not just experts in their own field. The renaissance scholar was expected to master all branches of knowledge.

With his insatiable desire to know everything, Leonardo da Vinci is often held up as the ideal Renaissance man.

You are an Intrapersonal thinker.

Intrapersonal thinkers:
Spend a lot of time thinking about and trying to understand themselves
Reflect on their thoughts and moods, and work to improve them
You understand how your behaviour affects your relationships with others

Like intrapersonal thinkers, Leonardo worked hard to improve all aspects of himself.

Other Intrapersonal thinkers include
Sigmund Freud, Gandhi, Grahame Greene

Careers which suit Intrapersonal Thinkers include
Psychologist, Teacher, Pilot, Child care worker, Explorer, Drama therapist
