Smiley Face In The Sky

Definitely the first time I'm seeing this appearing in the night sky. After my Japanese class I saw this in the sky:

I didnt take this picture..just got it from the forums...hehe..I dont think you will be able to see the other star clearly due to the size of the picture

The stars are Venus and Jupiter. The brighter one is Venus and the fainter one is Jupiter. And the moon of course!

Code Geass - Boku wa, Tori ni Naru (I, Will Become a Bird)

Personally I find this song very touching. Sung by Kuroishi Hitomi from the anime Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch R2(Lelouch of The Rebellion R2).

Here are the lyrics..

When I just cant find my way
You are always there for me
When I am out of my way
You are always there for me

When I just cant find my way
You are always there for me
When I am out of my way
You are always there for me

Like a bird in the sky
You set me free
You give me one heart
Like a star in my night
You'll always be a part of me

When I just cant fly my way
You are always there
You are always there
You are always there for me

In my darkest dreams
I hear you call me
You give me the reason to live
In my dirty heart
I hear you call me
And you reach out to carry me away

No one can save my soul
Only you

Like a bird in the sky
You set me free
You give me one heart
Like a star in my night
You'll always be a part of me

Kurai tsuki anjisuru
Sono hikari no saki de wa
Futashika na sonzai no
Boku no yume ga umarekawaru

Isogi ikiru kedo
Gomen ne

Tori ga sora o tobimawareru you ni
Boku wa jiyuu ni ima nareru n da

Boku wa jiyuu ni ima nareru n da

Tori ga sora o tobimawareru you ni
Boku wa jiyuu ni ima nareru n da

Like a bird in the sky
You set me free
You give me one heart
Like a star in my night
You'll always be a part of me

Like a star in my night
You'll always be a part of me

Definition from Wikipedia:

Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection. The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure ("I loved that meal") to intense interpersonal attraction ("I love my girlfriend"). This diversity of meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states.
As an abstract concept, love usually refers to a deep, ineffable feeling of tenderly caring for another person. Even this limited conception of love, however, encompasses a wealth of different feelings, from the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love to the nonsexual emotional closeness of familial and Platonic love to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love. Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.

I am not sure why my friend asked me questions related to this. I am neither a romantic person nor really experienced in this matter.
Is there true love in this world? How do we know if we have found it?
Seriously, I have never given a thought about it. Is it that important?hmm...

Well, I think that every person defines true love differently. Some might say it is like that and some might say it is like this. So, I feel that the most important thing is what you think true love is.

One of my friends said that, "We love someone because we want something from that person."
True??hmm..Perhaps. Yes, we 'love' someone because we want their money/become popular/etc. So, what if you had all the money in the world or become the most popular person in the world. Will you be happy??
Dont forget that there is such a thing called "unconditional love". This probably only exist between parents and children. They love us without expecting anything in return and want us to be successful in life.

So, what is love then? Does it really exist between two strangers? I think it can.
Ever felt when you meet that person all your problems and sorrows just kind of drains away. Doesnt matter how sad or depressed or tired, just seeing that one person seems to make all your problems go away. Even just by listening to that person's voice you feel your burden has lighten a little. And always looking forward to meeting that person.(I think I'm talking crap here...but give it a thought)

I'd say that my one and only relationship was a failure. There wasnt really anything in it so it ended after a short while. So, I hope it doesnt happen again if I ever get into another relationship..hehe..

Humans are like this:
When they have something they take it for granted thinking that is will always be there, but when they lose it they regret it.

Maybe we should count our blessings and appreciate whoever or whatever that is around us and not take anything for granted.
One thing is for sure is that if you truly love someone you will never want anything bad to happen to him/her and wish the best for him/her. I think when it comes to love..everyone is selfish..nothing can be done about that I guess..haha

The Brain

What weighs about 3 lbs and uses about 20% of your body's energy??
Your brain of course.

Definitely the most complex part/organ of the human body. It controls the whole body consciously and unconsciously. The main part of the brain, which is the largest, is called the cerebrum. It is split into two hemispheres: left and right.

Left hemisphere:
uses logic,detail oriented, facts rule, words and language, present and past, math and science, can comprehend, knowing, acknowledges, order/pattern perception, knows object name, reality based, forms strategies, practical, safe and controls the right side of the body.

Right hemisphere:
uses feeling, “big picture” oriented, imagination rules, symbols and images, present and future, philosophy & religion, can “get it” (i.e. meaning), believes, appreciates, spatial perception, knows object function, fantasy based, presents possibilities, impetuous, risk taking and controls the left side of the body.

The two halves of the brain "communicates" via the corpus callosum. It is sort of a highway for the brain signals. Females have larger corpus callosum compared to men.

I am writing this because I Googled "brain usage" today and found out that the information I have was WRONG. The information was from the TV series Heroes(TV shows cant be trusted these days...sigh..). The information was that the human brain only utilises 10% of the brain. However, the fact is that the human brain uses more than that(close to 100% I believe).

With the results of the search I "played" with my brain a little bit. Testing whether which side of it is more dominant. Look at the image below(got from here):

If you see it spinning clockwise means you use more of your right brain. If it is anti-clockwise means left brain. The first time I looked at it it was spinning clockwise but I sort of made it spin the opposite direction as well. Next test was from this website.
My results:

Your Brain Usage Profile:

Auditory : 28%
Visual : 71%
Left : 52%
Right : 47%

You exhibit an even balance between left- and right- hemisphere dominance and a slight preference for visual over auditory processing. With a score this balanced, it is likely that you would have slightly different results each time you complete this self-assessment quiz.

You are a well-rounded person, distinctly individualistic and artistic, an active and multidimensional learner. At the same time, you are logical and disciplined, can operate well within an organization, and are sensitive towards others without losing objectivity. You are organized and goal-directed. Although a "thinking" individual, you "take in" entire situations readily and can act on intuition.

You sometimes tend to vacillate in your learning styles. Learning might take you longer than someone of equal intellect, but you will tend to be more thorough and retain the material longer than those other individuals. You will alternate between logic and impulse. This vacillation will not normally be intentional or deliberate, so you may experience anxiety in situations where you are not certain which aspect of yourself will be called on.

With a slight preference for visual processing, you tend to be encompassing in your perceptions, process along multidimensional paths and be active in your attacking of situations or learning.

Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are, perhaps, a little too critical of yourself -- and of others -- while maintaining an "openness" which tempers that tendency. Indecisiveness is a problem and your creativity may not be in keeping with your potential. Being a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more immediate, obvious and the more functional

I guess I use both sides equally?? More brain facts here.

Mid Autumn Festival 2008

To anyone(friends, family, etc) who reads my blog..

May you,
find the lantern that will illuminate your life.
May you,
find the lantern that will light up the path infront of you.
May you,
find the lantern that will stay alight no matter the condition.

If you have found it don't let it go even if it goes out,
you should bring it back to light the way it brought light to your life.

Happy Mid Autumn Festival.

May you always be well and happy.

Don't ask me how I wrote or came up with it because I just felt like writing it after reading an SMS.

To the person that I replied to,
this could be slightly different from the one you received..just a little edit..hehe.

It is a truly sincere message from my heart.

Looking back at it..I am wondering myself how did I came up with it.

Feel free to leave a comment in the comments part or the chat box..hehe

No I do NOT like them..but they seem to "LIKE" idea why...they have a grudge on me?? or my blood is delicious perhaps?? o.O||

I duno how many of these tiny lives have I taken...I just took another when writing this post..

I'm staying on the 3rd floor of this condo thinking that there wont be a lot of mosquitoes...but I was least one will enter my room EVERYDAY...even the bathroom has mosquitoes...gosh...they/it must come when I'm studying or playing games or reading online..

The mosquito repellent that I brought is basically attracts them instead of keeping them away...are all repellents like that??...and where do they normally attack?? LEGS!!...

The mosquito/insect "repellent"

How do I get rid of them?? using the most traditional HANDs...might hurt a little if I miss the fact..I find them to be quite "intelligent"..they seem to know when I'm going to attack them and dodges my clap!!...I can only get rid of them but not keep them away...sigh..

I guess that's all for now...need to continue studying...hopefully they or another of them doesnt come to feed on me....

Beijing Olympics 2008: Closing Ceremony

As usual..superb coordination...the closing was another great show put up by the host country, China. Though it was short..only lasting 2hours, it was quite good but not as great as the opening. The best part of the show was the memory tower part. One word to describe that part...AWESOME.

However..the songs featured sounds quite weird to me..Most of the Chinese stars like Wang Lee Hom, Kelly, Jackie Chan? o.O etc, made an is quite obvious that ALL of them are lip-syncing..I guess it cant be helped?..

When the athletes came like kids..haha..All of them just cant resist the camera..

A short performance by performance from Britain was kinda strange..even the song sang by Leona Lewis was strange..Wats with all the weird/strange songs in the closing??!

Pics...grabbed from the official website..cant find the pic of the tower with the flower..

Double decker bus from London?

The Mayor of London waving the Olympic flag as the president of IOC and Mayor of Beijing looks on..

The memory tower

Im not sure what message does this tells but great picture if viewed from the top of the stadium

Finishing off with fireworks display

Well..i guess it is goodbye Beijing and hello London in 2012..

No doubt this is the best Olympics ever!..

Went and watch Wall-E today with a bunch of friends at Pavilion KL. Luckily, the only girl in this group suggested and wanted to watch it if not...duno when only I can watch it..takes a few months before DVD quality comes out, oook....

We started from uni deciding what kind of transportation to take to Pavilion. At first we decided to take the LRT/Monorail but then it was still early since we are watching the 3.20pm show so we suggested the 'very efficient' bus. After a bit of debate it was about 1 sumting hitchhiked the course rep's car to the LRT station with taking the bus in mind. However, the decision changed the last minute back to the original LRT/monorail plan because who knows how long will it take to reach Pavillion.

Wall-E(the main character obviously) stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter - Earth Class. In my opinion, it really is quite a cute robot especially those eyes...It is the only one left on earth...all other Wall-Es are not functioning anymore. He/It has a pet cockroach which can withstand quite a beating(still not dead even though being squished by Wall-E). Wall-E's gf...EVE(Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator) was sent to earth to search for plants.Well, she/it wasnt Wall-E's gf until later la...haha..It seems that the design of EVE is inspired by Apple products..well er..seems quite like it though..

Here are some screenshots of the movie..not captured by me but obtained from the official site..

Wall-E and his pet

Awww....look at those eyes....

Wall-E and Mop..cute robot obsessed with cleanliness

Wall-E and his Rubik's cube..Eve solved in matter of seconds...

Eve probably has electrical current running outside her body? o.O

Charging his batteries

The 'dance' in outer space

Wall-E at his home

The people who created this movie really did a good job. The human character/attitude portrayed by the characters closely match real human's attitude. There is one part where Wall-E wakes up from his slumber..his attitude is exactly like humans..haha..

I think there is a hidden message in this movie...that is..the rubbish lor..

Sooo..after the was raining slightly..umbrellas up! and we made our way to the monorail station. When the monorail arrived we thought it was packed..but when we took the LRT..the LRT carriages was packed like sardines in a can!! Cant do anything about it so we boarded it anyway..and the really heavy rain came. We got of at respective stations..and it was still really raining cats and dogs..and I have to walk back from the station. No choice lor...reached home with shoes that were quite was a great movie and I think everyone had a great time

Exhibition On Diseases

This exhibition was held today at UTAR organized by the whole Biomedical Science course(Y1 - Y3?). Although I wasnt involved in it, I would say that it was quite a success. Quite a number of people turned up for it. Surprisingly, even some lecturers or staff of the faculty came.

The diseases highlighted were genetic disease, heart disease, cancer and skin disease(?). One part of the exhibition promoted organic foods. Somehow it was the most popular among the students probably coz of the lucky draw.

Here are some pics. They are not that clear coz i dont have a proper camera phone is old phone mar..want clearer pics sponsor me a digital camera lor...heheh..

Some guy checking out the genetic disease part..

One of UTAR's counsellors checking out the genetic disease board..

er...very blur..those in green probably did the cancer part..

Free health screen?..not sure..but blood pressure is being taken

Some guy getting facial treatment.. o.O

This is the organic foods part...Look at the amount of people!! o.O
She seems kinda happy..and looks like somebody i know.. o.O

Organic foods team and their lecturer..

The team of 'specialist' on genetic diseases...

This is what I got..3 OLD issues of Galaxie magazine and a cookbook??

PC Fair 2008

I went to PC Fair by Pikom at KLCC today with a bunch of friends. I was packed with people. REALLY packed!! Crowd control was bad. Plenty of ways in but so little exits.
Initially we were suppose to go in a group but eventually some of them turned up late so we split into two groups. I was in the group the went to KLCC first.

The LRT was like a can of sardines. At every station/stop, no one was getting down. When we reached we made our way to the exhibition area. Frankly, the exhibition that I've been in Ipoh is nothing compared what is available here.

The first booth I visited was the P1 booth. P1 is the first company to offer WiMax. WiMax is something like wireless broadband. There were so many people there so my group left the booth(or rather I left the booth) and head to the next exhibition area.

The next area is specially dedicated for sound systems. The whole hall was fill with all sorts of sound systems with heavy bass music playing at every booth. Sound systems are really not my thing and I think it is not that important part of upgrading my PC. So, after one of my buddy bought a headset we left the area.

The next area was all about computers (laptops and desktops systems). I find the most interesting part of this area was the Intel booth. They were promoting their new breed of 45nm processor. I got a free gift from the booth just by participating in the 'activity'. Collecting stamps(chop) after listening what they want to promote at each station. The free gift was...a microSD card reader...with no card... =.=||

An awesome machine at the Intel booth

So we moved on and met up with the other group. Not long after that my group left me with the other group.. =.=|| and we are splitted into two groups again...So we continue to the huge exhibition halls at the ground floor.

Lots of people leh....

We practically spent most of our time here and it is the most packed area. Plenty of booths and one strange thing is there are multiple booth of the same company/brand(duno why leh...).

There is this narrow passage named Hall 3. This is where a lot of people got stuck. See the pic. We got stuck here as well as the we can only exit from Halls 4 & 5.
Jam packed!!

Just to get the LRT ticket home takes a long time. The place is packed. Luckily got back to my condo before it became dark.

It was really nice but it really needs better crowd control. Everyone is packed like sardines at Hall 3. My legs are quite sore now because hardly got to sit. Literally walked the whole day. The pics are not that clear coz I dont have a proper camera and the phone camera is really bad.. =(

Piano Playing Cat??

Is this for real??or just a cat randomly hitting the piano keys?? o.O
