Seems like I’m not updating this blog for a long time. A week busy with Minggu Haluan Siswa in University of Malaya + no internet connection in my room finally I’m connected!
Yesterday I went to Low Yat Plaza to upgrade my phone’s firmware. I know that I’ve a great phone, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. It does everything that iPhone can; from internet browsing to GPS system that can navigate me anywhere that I want.
Well, after upgrading the firmware (V20.xx -> V50.xx), I noticed that there were many features that I missed out before. Haha, maybe because I’m lazy to upgrade it myself.
I just finished read about CultureShock! Germany, a survival guide to customs and etiquette. The book which is one of CultureShock! series is a dynamic and indispensable range of guides for those who are looking to truly understand the country, Germany itself. The author, Richard Lord share all the information necessary for anyone to stay or study abroad in Germany more effectively.
Here is the synopsis of the book;
CultureShock! Germany dispels the stereotypes and explores the realities of unified Germany, giving readers an insight into its varied people and customs. Find out how a makler can help you locate the right accommodation, be aware of the importance of health insurance and prepare yourself for the short German work week that comes complete with an annual 30 days of holiday. Understand what it is to be an Auslander and take advantage of the practical information on how to fit in and settle into a country that is still recovering from the scars of World War II and the separation of east and west. Learn to appreciate the various versions of wurst and the different types of beer. CultureShock! Germany is the definitive guide for anyone who wants to settle well into German society.
The book is really worth to read, personally for me. I like to read about other customs and etiquette from different places/countries. *Hurm, maybe because I like to travel too; to different places of course!
By the way, Happy Teacher’s Day to all my teachers.
This coming 22nd of May will gonna be the first ever WordCamp in Malaysia. I’m really excited after I go through the agenda, full-packed with a lot of activities. Oh, I really want to join the camp but unfortunately on 22nd of May, I have works to-do since I need to register at University of Malaya on 23rd.
Here is a short brief about WordCamp, taken from WordCamp Central:
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.
Interested? Why not put aside the money factor and join the camp. Haha. I wish I could, but I can’t.
It’s hard to believe that I’m not UTPian anymore. Well, yesterday was my last day in UTP. During 5 months here, I really enjoyed my life. I met a lot of friends from different backgrounds, races and even geographical backgrounds. Sabahan and Sarawakian also nice to be a-friend for me.
But, it was the past and became memories for myself. We can’t back to the past and need to continue our life in future. Yeah, I’m a positive thinker. Day before yesterday, I still at Kelana Jaya for self-reflecting. I was thinking about my future and what I want to-be. Alhamdulillah, Allah swt shows the best for me, I guess. I got an offer to continue my studies in University of Malaya for Foundation in Physical Science.
Hurm, I think I will take the offer since I’m not hoping too high for MARA PILN results. Well, we need to change sometimes even though we are in the safe places.
Don’t ask me why I left UTP but please ask the question to Petronas itself.
Normally before I even started writing a post the first thing that comes into my mind is that what will I be writing about? Will this be another stupid ramble of mine or will it be something beneficial to others?
Many stumble upon this question and started to crap about anything without considering the title or the idea that they should follow. Maybe something like misguided while rambling or simply lack of ideas.
