Farewell to Todd

Left one is my summer bed and the other one is my winter bed. (yeah~~~ my roommate left already, but quite miss him a lot, since I missed a chance to know more about Malay people)

My desk, very messy~~~~ and I am BEING watched!!!! Every room, every corner and some areas in UM compound are established with this CCTV surveillance system, but I think some of them are FAKE!!! Why am I saying so?? Because I saw 8 cctv in my tutorial classroom and this classroom twice smaller than our U6S2 classroom!!! It’s really incredible!!!!

My ‘ancient’ faculty….. both outside and inside are OLD!!!!

Same as last week, this week also very busy, every night has activities inside or outside the campus, made me really exhausted……

Ya, at first, I have a great experience that have to share with you guys, that is I attended a public lecture of a great world philosopher who came from Oxford University last Thursday. He is Frederick Antony Ravi Kumar Zacharias a.k.a. Ravi Zacharias, an Indian-American. I think some of you might know this man.

His speech was really impressive, I have to be honest to say that I only could understand 30% of his words, thanks to my poor English. But anyhow, I was still able to catch his core idea and gained a lot eventually. His topic was “The three great challenges to religion and society.” Well, what are challenges??? Ravi said: Secularization, Pluralization and Privatization. That’s all what I got from his 90 minutes speech. (the photo is not with me, so I will show you later)

Emm… the most memorable and touching event in this week is….. a farewell party of my first international friends, they are Todd and Dave~~~They will flight to their respective countries in these following days. (Todd guy already on board right now, and Dave is going on next week), time is flowing so fast and unperceptive~~~~

The farewell party was held outside campus:

Guys, guess what are they doing??!!?!

They were playing the MALAYSIA version’s FEAR FACTOR!!!!

That is eating a durian flesh~~~ (%#%#!$@#^)

Huh!!!!!! What’s the fear factor, it’s very easy!!!!!

But for mat salih, they rather jump from 88 storeys of KLCC than eat a small piece of durian fresh. You can observe it from their face. It all thanks to durian’s disgusting stinky smell. (in their points of nose) Hey, Todd and Dave, hoped no offensive to you guys :p

The Chinese saying: there never have a party that never end. 天下无不散之宴席Yeah, it’s right. It’s really heavy to say farewell to friend, but I believed that we will meet one day somewhere in the world, maybe in US or UK....

Last but not least: What is this??!?!??!

This is the most irrelevant subject for me. Tamadun islam and tamadun melayu (Islamic civilization and Malay civilization) this is a new syllabus of TITAS for current first year, it totally excluded all the tamadun asia. (Asian cilivization that including Chinese, Indian and Japanese civilization)

Why were they doing so??? Are they really think that 500 year-old Malay civilization is far more superior than 5000 year-old Chinese, Indian and Japanese civilization?!?!?! And what are the differences between the Islamic civilization and Malay civilization besides skin colour and language?!?!?! Is Malay civilization a civilization of Asian or Islamic?!?!? Is it more appropriate to use Malaysian civilization instead of Malay civilization?!?!?! Is it unfair to non-Malay Malaysian?!?!?

Guys, feel free to discuss this topic!!!! Never afraid of that AUKU!!!! Boon and Waijin, are you guys required to study Tamadun Singapura some kind of thing!?!?!?

Finally, I have nothing to say to that idiot prime minister of japan, Junichiro Koizumi, who prayed to those notorious war criminals of WWII at Yasukuni shrine during the 815 VJ day, the most sensitive day for Chinese and Korean. This time japan really missed the final chance for reconstructing the relationship with china and korea. Sigh, the road for japan is getting uneven.

Ok. Stop politic. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DEAR ZIZI!! Sorry this time bro couldn’t celebrate with you…. Emm…. Wait until September holidaylah~~~~~
