yes, finally passed up my FYP 1st draft..this semester we just have to complete abt, 30% of it..since its just two credit hours..next sem its 4 credit hours. passed up on 21st oct..now its 25th d..hehehe wat have i been doing since?
ewwww...am watching House as I type..season 2..yucks..the docs put maggots on the patient to eat the dead flesh.grimy..
back to my topic..FYP (here in utm its known as PSM-Projek Sarjana Muda)..i never told abt my title before right? Mine is "Effectiveness of plant species to reduce crosswind on highway vehicles". hehe u guys might think, "wat's that got to do with aeronautical engineering?"..hmmm. nt sure. haha well got lar..basically mine is of wind engineering...ever wondered abt the "bahaya kawasan angin lintang" signs along our highways? North-south Expressway around Ayer Keroh are one of the locations. what are the measures taken to tackle that problem? it is quite dangerous ma..anyway, im doing a research on by planting some trees at that area, how much can the crosswind be reduced. im not goin to do it experimentally..that'd take up too much time..so im doing simulation (CAE--computer aided engineering) to simulate the real situation. will be using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) to simulate the wind flow at the 'trees', and the best tree species to be used. been experimenting with GAMBIT and FLUENT...well it may seem tat im talking gibberish now..haha i also didn't know what it was about till a few weeks ago..but everything is going good, the presentation is next week. =) hopefully can do well lar..as long as I dont compete with other coursemates...
my draft is supposed to be 3 chapters nia--introduction, lit review, methodology..i thought my 40pages is pretty good d..and standard lar...fuuuh, perosak ekonomi all datang mencurah-curah. haha i think my choice of malay words is wrong, but..never mind..my coursemates under the same lecturer as mine--60pages--70 pages--almost 90pages..crazy..sigh, there's this regulation in our faculty that for bachelor's degree, the total pages cannot exceed 100 pages for the whole thesis. and that includes next sem. so means my coursemates dont have to do d next sem. hehes. chisin wan..got another batch of students (my coursemates as well) that is under another lecturer that tengah saling mendera each other trying to compete for the "most pages award"..heard that one has already exceeded 200 pages (for PSM I nia!!!)..cos their lecturer extended their due date to 27th.. (ours is 21st, and we only had 3days to do after our berlambak tests and assignments ) so 40pages was the best i could muster up..actually could do more, but didnt feel like it d..hehe so these ppl are going to slaughter themselves to death competiting.
next..after that..been watching anime anime anime..watch Blood+!! watch watch watch!! the storyline is pretty good. its about this sorta vampire slayer thing, the girl's name is Saya and there are 3 to die for characters- Hagi, Kai and Solomon..only 50 eps =) of course im still following Naruto and Bleach religiously..but the fillers are really starting to be super getting on my nerves and sien d... thus now i'm reading the mangas =) Good!! when is naruto getting back to the mangas? arghhh..pekchek nia..oh can I recommend Black Blood Brothers also? =)
and..for 3 days..finally i succumbed to it. MAPLESEA (heng, alicia, justin should know..since they are rehabs =P) i started playing after i passed up my draft. hehe. this CANNOT continue!!! level up to 20 in just 3 days!! playing til 7am in the morning for 3days d..then waking up at 4pm. chammmmm..tonite kenot like tat d..i've two coursemates teman me play..they're at levels 30++ d..oh im miniSyzygium by the way (Syzygium is the plant species i picked for my PSM). hehe..
oh..im watchin House also. =)

"Kegagalan sekarang tidak bermakna anda tiada kejayaan pada masa depan"
Dr. Shuhaimi Mansor
This is what the lecturer told us during lecture...trying to motivate us after most of us died horrible deaths in test 1. i got 5/20. hahaha. but i studied the night before, so i reap what i sow. but some that studied whole week also get 3.5...some 7...some 9...basically the range was 2.5-14. only 2 did well nia for test 1. but of course, last night we were slaughtered. AGAIN. ish. i really liked this lecturer cos he had the passion to teach and tried to instill certain values in us. but. oh well, after 8 semesters here, and the ninth coming to an end, being slaughtered in tests is nothing new to me..I am, after all never a brilliant and hardworking student. Imagine last night, nobody could do the test. Nobody! Even our course prodigy was stumped. oh well, I looked pretty happy after the test though. at least it meant I'm not dumb.hehe. "mati bersama-sama", remember? I did prepare for this test though...I started 2 days before the test!! an achievement d, considering the fact i actually studied for it by my study table instead of my computer table. But still..die wat.
hmmm. which makes me ponder.. Study also die, tak study also die...then why study? ish ish.. cannot so negative wan right? I still have many many tests and finals is next month.. my FYP lecturer is complaining that my progress is too slow, hence I need to buck up also..
It's hard to change you know..I've always been like this since young. Procrastination is what I do best. Pushing all the assignments and studies till the due date is what I do most of the time. In secondary school, I hated Chemistry and Physics so much, during the term exams, I actually just used my eraser and wrote "A, B, C, D", threw it and filled in the answers in my answer sheet. I couldn't be bothered to study, since it's term exam nia. but I never get more than 15/40 for my objective papers in these two subjects la. hehe. It's time to repent...with 1.2 sems to go, I cannot afford to flunk any papers or else I will have to extend. *gasp!! is that possible??
Yes Yes, I've pasted motivational quotes on my notice board. But talk only no action also kenot la..
Actually I've nothing to post up wan..but saja bertanya khabar nia..oh last nite after my test, we went to Neway at CS to celebrate Fly's birthday..in advance la. 6 of us lor..me, danielle, fly, eddie, master, soo hoe. hmmm can say that its blardy expensive to ber-karaoke after midnite le..but it wasnt bad. of course, my singing skills is still as bad as ever, since I dont actually sing. More like screaming and yelling out the lyrics?.. Everyone was nice enough not to comment, but I feel like I sound like a very sick dog howling. lol. I seemed to have lost the touch judging monetary value after I spent 5 months in KL. Money suddenly just seemed like..figures. haihs. which is why i have been spending like nobody's business. I've finished up the disbursement Petronas banked in 3 months ago..am basically broke, now waiting for next disbursement nia lo.. Dad obviously wont come to the rescue, since I keep spending on unnecessary things. hehe. okla..wanna go do my presentation slides d..we have english presentation on monday..ta~
