On a break

I am finally done with my short semester!

Time to take a break, and do all the things that I’ve been wanting to do. Hoooray!
So far, I’m done watching Glee, and How I Met Your Mother.
The ending of HIMYM isn’t that great, but hey, I could accept it.


Woke up around 8:15am today and quickly put my things in the apartment’s store, and head back home. Driving back home felt pretty quick today because the traffic is pretty smooth.
Ahhh. I’m so happy to be on a break…. except for one thing. Now that I’m back, and my place is still going through the water-rationing, so that’s pretty sucks too. Damn.

My sister isn’t home for the week because she’s in the organising committee for some event thing for her school, soooo more space for me! YAY

Sea Shepherd

Anyone here has ever heard about Sea Shepherd?

Last Friday, I was blessed that Mr Stokes, (The Director of Sea Shepherd Asia) had came over to my university to give a talk about the Introduction to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. I was a part of the committee who organized this talk and my job for that day was to take photos since I’m the Head of Photography. As a committee, as per usual, we were asked to come early and help setting up the place. However, as soon as I got there, Mr Stokes had already set up everything he needed and other members had done most of the jobs already.

I was sort of stunned when Ms Eve (the advisor of the club) called my name and asked me to come to her. I did what she told me and she introduced me to Mr Stokes. “This is Mr Gary and he is a wildlife photographer” I was like, wow. Like blown away.

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER?!?!

I felt shy, somehow. Also felt small… like OMG, he’s like a wildlife photographer and I’m not even a pro photographer to begin with, not even sure what ISO or exposures to use, and like I said, NOT A PRO. And I had to take his pictures…. like what if he sees my photos and it turned out like shiiiit. Okay stay calmmmmm and there… I said “Hhiiiiiii” with an awkward smile, and a little wave.

Then Ms Eve continued, “She’s our photographer and she’s been taking photos.. and she has her own camera… so…” I didn’t listened to the rest and then when they moved on into another topic, I went away.

Soooo basically, Sea Shepherds are volunteers who are animal lovers, and take their part to save endangered sea animals like dolphins, seals, whales, sharks from getting killed and slaughtered.

Mr Stokes showed us some videos about the whale wars, seals getting shot, and dolphins getting trapped and killed in Taiji, it was sad. Not only that, I also found out that , many sharks were killed for shark fin soup. I never knew it was so many. In China, they have like this trading markets selling shark fins from all over the world. YES ALL OVER THE WORLD. Kept in plastic bags and you could choose them like buying anchovies at the market.

Mr Stokes also shared his experience of being a Sea Shepherd and saving the whales from getting slaughtered, and how they stopped other boats from killing these precious sea creatures.
It was amaaaazing. Apart from that, Mr Amin (Director of Sea Shepherd Malaysia) also gave a few speech about corals and how he planned to save them.

There were some Q&A’s after that, and the event ended with a photograph session. One of the amazing thing I heard from Mr Stokes is that, the story where he met this guy who wanted to rebuild sea corals. Like have you ever heard about people planting sea corals?! Like WOW. I didn’t know you can plant such a thing. That was just….. Wow.

mystery such a tragedy

24th of March marks the 17th day of the missing airliner. With this, our prime minister had announced that the MH370 ended in the South Indian Ocean.

This news…. was pretty hard to accept. Especially to the families of the captain, crews and the passengers of the flight.

Though, until this day, no bodies were found, but there were objects found through the satellites that was believed to be the debris, or parts of the airplane.

The Indian Ocean… is pretty big. Like have you watched Frozen? Everytime I thought of the ocean, I thought about that part where Elsa’s and Anna’s parents’ were away and their ship sunk into the ocean.

I hope the authorities will be able to find the black box soon. I know it’s going to take forever to find, and may even take years, but whatever it is, I hope they’ll find it.

I’m sorry, but there are no survivors. I’m pretty sure of it. If there is one, they’ll call for help already.
Maybe, God just love them more.
Maybe it’s just their fate, destined to die this way.
Everyone is going to die anyway. Just a matter of time.

Right now, I just hope that they’re alright up there.
Amen.

Come back home!

It’s the 11th day of the missing airplane.
MH370 has not been found since 8th March at 2.30am on a Saturday morning, Malaysian time.
The airplane itself is known for its safest airplane model that was ever built and ironically, it’s gone. With no news, no plane debris, no bodies were found to give an evidence. The missing aircraft has been the talk, the sensation, and shocking news to the world ever since it was found missing.

When I first heard the news, the first thing came into my mind was, ‘How the heck can a plane be missing? It’s probably crashed somewhere’ which I’m pretty sure most people had the same thought as I was. There were 239 passengers. Missing. The plane was missing from radar. Missing from radar?!? How can it happen? Not to mention the fact that the plane belongs to my country gave me an outburst feeling. There were families waiting for them at the airport, just waiting for them to return, and now, not a single official news had any idea about the plane’s whereabouts.

What worries me is, the passengers in the plane. It’s already 11 days, and there’s definitely no food in that plane. Those passengers could be also taken as hostages! How the heck do we know?!? Hopefully they’re still alive.

Many countries have sent help and rescue team to search for it. We’re just waiting, hoping that something good is coming out of it. Since there were no debris and no bodies were found at the South China Sea, they were expanding their search. It was confirmed by the prime minister that it could be the act of plane hijack. It is possible. MAS can only confirm if it’s a plane crash unless they found bodies and debris. And it couldn’t be plane crash since the rescue had search for days for any debris… and another thing is that, the pilot would send a distress signal and we would have been alarmed that there is any plane crash.

This disappearance, has been such a mystery to the history of aviation. It was thoughtful of the nation from around the world sending heartfelt messages, and praying for the safety of the passengers, and hoping it to come back by putting up banners, paintings and murals. However, I still couldn’t stand the fact that there are some people who made stupid jokes about the missing plane, and brought up political issues in this. It’s so stupid. This disappearance has nothing to do with the government and politics. Don’t blame the government why the plane has not been found. In fact, there are other countries who took part in this search and rescue mission, in directly, you’re blaming them too. Stop playing the blame game, and do you think it’s so easy to search a plane? Why don’t you do it instead of complaining and just sitting at home doing nothing?

When people give up on Scientific and logical reasoning, they tend to look for other things to obtain an answer. Like probably, it is invisible, or something supernatural happened. This is where the part of the ‘bomoh’(s) and talisman came in. It has been the talk of the world since it had media coverage on it. Other countries thought that we’re ridiculous and ‘couldn’t handle the situation well’ and it was quite embarrassing. With our own people talking bad about our government, as well made our country looked…. pathetic. We are embarrassing our own country. My goodness! I hope people should just.. stop and just pray to God. The Almighty knows everything and what is happening to the plane.

There were plenty of fake news on the internet. Theories and speculations made by people that was partly true, some were entirely untrue. Right now I’m just going to wait for the official reports made at the press conference. You can’t entirely trust social medias about this. I read some and they were really ridiculous. Some even said they’ve found the plane already. Oh really? Then where is it? There were even attention seekers who took advantage of this tragedy for fame. Like that girl on twitter who claimed that her mother was in the plane and she gotten plenty of retweets and heartfelt messages while her actual mother is at home. Seriously? What if your own mother IS IN THAT PLANE. Then you’ll be sorry.

I really hope that MH370 will come back. Dear God, please give us any signs of it. Anything. It will put an end of any speculations and fake news, and the hope of our people.

week 2 

I came back from meeting, and my stomach grumbling like mad. The last meal I had was at 11am, and noticing the time I got back.. that’s like 8 hours since I ate anything. No wonder I’m that hungry.
As I made my way to my apartment, climbing up a few flights of stairs (yes I’m taking the stairs now, since my new apartment for this semester is only at level 2.) taking my keys out and trying to unlock the annoying door. The door is freaking annoying. Like seriously, I had some trouble with the door. Sometimes it’s easy to unlock, and some of the days, it made you looked like you’re trying to break in someone’s house.

Fortunately, this time, wasn’t so difficult to unlock the main door, thank goodness for that, or I’ll be spending some time stuck outside my own house. The moment I came through the door, I saw my housemates, Aida and Hawa. They asked me if I had eaten, and with my hungry tummy and tired face, I said ‘No’. Guess what? They offered me food right away ! Told me to sit down and eat. Like.. right on time. As if they know what was going through my mind, and my tummy that was begging for food. I was seriously hungry. I’ve never had a housemate like this. Okayyyy, maybe once. She was my roommate and that was few years ago during my foundation year.

I honestly, looooove my new housemates. I’m so glad that they’re the type who wants to hang outside their room and have a conversation with you. Unlike my previous housemates, they’re really like to be stuck in their respective room, and you won’t see them like… for a few days, or not ever… unless you accidentally bumped into them when you’re on your way to the toilet, or leaving the house to go to class. Other than that, no. They’re not interested to listen about your life or what so ever. They only asks you to pay the electricity or borrow your electronic devices, like an electric kettle or something like that. It was preetty boring, and sometimes lonely too. When I’m in the house, most of the time I thought I was alone, because it made no difference. Whether they’re at home or not.

My other friends lives with people they’re familiar with, and with that they get to be with the same housemate for the rest of their education lives here, unlike me. No one offered me to live with them, well there’s one who did, but she’s kindaaaaa like the person you seriously can’t be housemates with or you’re going to be stabbing her in her sleep.

This semester, I’m only taking two subjects; Engineering Economics (pretty much like accounts) and MS (it’s actually history that you learned in highschool, such a boring subject). Don’t want to take up core subjects. I just want to do something, or keep my head busy with something. I’m not ready to handle such kind of stress and this time. I’m supposed to be on 5-months holiday anyway, but I choose to be doing something that is supposed to be beneficial for my education purposes.

Sooo. My housemate, Aida. I met her before. I remembered that time when I took Dynamics, and I always have to wait outside before entering that class because there was a Statics class going on, and when the class ends, I saw her. But she never noticed me before. (Well to be frank, she doesn’t notice people around her). Then, there’s Dijah , Hawa and Naza whom I have never met before. It took some time to be friendly with Dijah and Hawa. And after some time and a few conversation, I’ve started to think that they’re nice people. Naza is the tallest in the house and she has just finished her first year. Not sure how old is she, because I didn’t asked and she’s not really the hanging with your housemate type. Prolly she’s shy or something. Plus, she’s not always around, or when she does, we don’t know that she’s around.

Classes has already started since last week. Econs was not bad, just that it’s a bit boring this week because my lecturer is away for 2 weeks and there was a substitute took over the class. As for MS. Boring. uh boring. We’ve pretty much learned it during highschool, so it’s like repeating the subject all over again. Last Monday, my group has successfully done our presentation (yes on week 2, that’s pretty quick right?) sooo there’s only one group assignment left to be done before week 6. Next week there’s going to be a quiz and we also have tests, but it’s an open book test. More like open source test actually.

Today is my friend’s birthday. I photoshopped a picture of her head and put it on Sandy Cheeks body. She asked me ‘What app did you used to do this?’ “No app. Just photoshop ;)” Lol. Technology nowadays has applications for almost everything.. so I’m not really surprised that she asked.
