Beauty of Mathematics Absolutely amazing!
1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321
1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111

9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888
Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
11! 11 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
Now, take a look at this...
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:
What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%.
How about ACHIEVING 101%?
What equals 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K
8+1+18+4+2! 3+ 15+18+11 = 98%
11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%
1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%
THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

civilisation: evryone is busy, materialistic, rudy rude!!! ..
So, what am i grubling about again?
Well, this is what i went through last Wednesday. I went to the government clinic just a stone's throw away from my place. I was having this bad flu and fever which comes on and off ocassionally. Wanted to get myself seriously checked up fearing the recent H1N1 outbreak.
As usual, walked to the counter anxiously getting my number.. it was heLL crowded..wondered if i had to wait the whole day to get treated!! And there was the HA (hospital assistant). She asked me if i've been to that particular clinic before and i said yes but very long time. I was taken a back when she suddenly raised her voice at me and said how long exactly?!!..i frowned lightly surprised at her reaction, answered in a rather polite manner, " it's about a year. I'm not sure! Sorry!"..Then she just told me to pay a dollar and since I had no change but RM10 with me, i handed her that money and waited for my change. She didn't give me back my change for quite some time. It was someone else's turn already and i thought may be she forgot.
Silently, I asked her, " Excuse me, maam. I paid RM10. My change please..".. This time she went over board!!..At that point i truly felt that I'm another plain human and my patience had its limits. I kept my cool..and took her answers.. calm.
" Why can't u wait? Can't you see I'm busy over here? I'm not gonna run away with your money!!!" and she threw my balance on the table just like that!!
It's either she didn't like me or she has no respect for money?!!!
I collected my cash and walked off without saying a word!!
What a day i thought?!!..
Then, it was my turn to see the doctor. Finally!! After a real long wait!! Now, the doctor..I wonder if he seriously was a doctor cz' his name didn't have a 'Dr.' and he was wearing a pale yellow uniform and wore a tag saying 'Pegawai kesihatan'..Maybe he was another HA i thought!!..True enough he certainly was!!..Just like any other docs he asked me what my problem was..bla..bla..bla..Same old thing..check on breathing..told me to say AAAAhhhHHHH..shined a torch into my mouth and said 'OK' plainly!...Prescribed some medicines that i should take and called up to the next patient.."huh U..what's wrong with u??"..and that was in a rather harsh manner..
my confusions in this case:
- can a HA treat patients..this happens in a government hospital especially when it is crowded..but still..do they know what exactly they are doing????
- even if they have to treat patients regardless the lack in number of doctors..can they prescribe??
- they are not even doctors..i believe that they won't even know what they are doing at times..how dare he mistreat the patients by just 'hey U'ing on them??!!! Well, even if he were to be a real doctor..a good qualified one..didn't his mum teach him any manners. I always believe in treating people the way you want to be treated!..Just because ur sitting on a great seat where people believe one who could save a life, that doesn't mean u can just mis- treat people like that!!..What happen to the Hippocratic Oath that newly graduated doctors take..is it merely another sake of formalities??

the country i was born, bred and live in...
A multi racial country with its people practising their own religion and culture...
Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians and other indeginous people like Iban and Kadazan..
multireligious practices in Malaysia is indeed a unique feature...
this indeed reflects the acceptance of all religious practices and freedom to practice them..
this truth is well enshrined in the national constitution...
in this era of wide spread terrorism, Malaysia has adopted strict measures to curb subversive activities and terrorism in the interest of peace and harmony...
and so it is possible for us to travel the length and breadth of Malaysia, without fear of bombs exploding without warning.....
M'sia is a country with plenty of resources...
there are about 3 million foreigners in this country to make a living...
a stable government with peaceful and hardworking people...
n0t forgetting the Malaysian delight...
truly a heaven for all food loversss...
an array of cuisine....
roti canai, nasi lemak, chee cheong fun, nasi kandar,......m0re & more.......
the darkness has l00med....
this country is not as it was before.....
she has failed to keep her promise...............
not to blame 'her' but her cells that make her up for what she is.......
is it temporary or......WORST......????!!!!!!
I was born in Malaysia no doubt. Although I'm a pure Sri Lankan by bl00d, i'd always love the place i was born in. It was a different situation all together 10 years back. I was old enough..or matured enough to know what's goin on, the people i meet and to remember their perspectives and their sense of patriotisme since then!...
Back in primary, I remember all of us used to take part in national day competitions held in school. For instance, class deco, poster drawing, poem recital, creative essays and much, much more!..At that period of life, everyone was enthusiastic about what they did to show their respective love and loyalty to the country.
However, now, it seems like most of us are lacking in patriotisme. I wonder... what's the price???If at all our thoughts towards the country keep deteorating like that, there is gonna be another dead country on the world map and who knows it would extinct just like that!!..
Think about it dear Malaysians..!!!!
We are truly Malaysians no matter where we end up around the globE..
But we have the same undestroyable style...the MALAYSIAN style...
the way we speak...the way we eat...out thoughts...
our life is merely a huge circle....make a tour and u come back to the same point....'
so dear MALAYSIANsss...st0p pretending...
cz' whatever we do we are still MALAYSIANss..

Mahatma Gandhi is one of the five humans on the planet who has impacted my life profoundly. He was a messenger of peace; his language nourished reconciliation, and his actions encouraged co-existence. Whether it is the conflict between Hindus or Muslims or with the British, his words mitigated conflicts and directed one's thoughts and actions towards solutions.
He was one of the most powerful leaders we have had in the last two centuries. He did not want anything for himself, nor did he want to control anything or lead any one. All he wanted to do was create a society of mutual respect and co-existence. Every one always wonders how did he get to make people listen to his message of non-violence? The answer is simple; People knew, he gained nothing from what he does, but instead they gained from his effort. Indeed, those who are un-selfish have invincible moral strength. Nothing frightens them or cows them down. You will find the same commitment and moral strength in Moses, Jesus, Krishna, Rama, Buddha, Zoroaster, Mahavira, Confucius, Nanak, Baha'u'llah, Mother Teresa and so many other great souls. Muhammad is my other mentor who had all the power on the earth during his life time but lived a simple life, and told his own daughter that she ain't going to get a free pass to God, she has to earn it by doing good deeds, i.e., doing things for other's good. Every one of the above teacher's strength lie in one simple thing: Their sense of justice was strong as a mountain and they were absolutely un-selfish.
Mahatma Gandhi's non-Violence movement is a model that will last for centuries to come. Every great teacher listed above has taught the same message over and over again. The idea is that there is a balance of energy in every human, doing bad things deflates that energy and doing good things recoups it. Fighting out may bear the result for short run, but in the long run, the fighting and the avenging continues. Whereas the non-violence method of achieving the objective is sustainable, justice ultimately brings lasting peace, and non-violence sustains it, violence disturbs the balance.
"The art of leadership consists in getting people to do what you want done because they want to do it"
It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.
Mahatma Gandhi, Indian political and spiritual leader (1869 - 1948)

part of my musical collection..
yeah kinda delayed by the heavy rain..took a cab 2 masjid tanah and then a bus to the central..since we were new to the place we had no idea where we were goin and what we were doin at that time..all we wanted to do is to go to a temple..
the temple that we ended up in is situated in gajah berang where we found out that it is on the way to the central and we should have got off the bus at that particular place/..like i mentioned we were new to the place...n0t anymore.!..at least i think we r!..hehehe...the temple was simply huge and gorgeous!..felt awfully satisfied as we all felt a missin piece in our life here..regardless that there are not much chances of practising our religious activities here...its just the situation and lack of facilities like temples around the place we live at!..me, losh, mullai, guna(j0e) and yeah r0se!..v didnt want 2 turn rose down after coming all the way so we walked to the nearest tamil methodist church and after all it was a sunday mornin and it wud be the best time 4 her to go to church!...owhh...should have seen that expression on her face!!...she was sooooooo delighted!..and yeah we know how it feels when you need that kinda spiritual support especially when ur away from home and ur loving family..
just as we were waitin outside the church..it came to my notice that we were just at the mouth of jonker's street!!!!!...heaven...!!!!!...losh was telling me about that place as she went there before with her family..and yeah i did hear some awesome stuffs about that place..always wanted to go there!!!......
and guess what........
galz will be galz...hahahaa....
another shopping CRAZE!!!!!..
actually didnt want 2 miss the opportunity as u know we need sum time to relax after all our heavy study weeks!!!..(yeah ryte: sounds more like an xcuse aight)
however v didnt regret...had loads of fun...
the very first thing we looked for is F00D!!!!...u know...melaka's quite famous for its cendol...n we were in heaven alright!!!..i dont quite remember the name of the restaurant but it was rather built in a classic baba nyonya style..food is self service...it was lunch time so v decided 2 have something sufficient enough to replace all that energy we used up during the long haul walks!!!...hehehexx...it wasnt tired newayz!...FUN!!!..and yeah back to our lunch...i had noodles with some special sauce and fish fillets in it....owwhh gosh...y mention??!!>....afta so long some good.. tasty.. mouth watering dish!!!...it was simply delicious..my friends had something similar to that and one had asam laksa...reminds me of the typical tomyam soup that i usually dwell for...hehehe...it was good...spicy and nice!..the soup especially...makes ur throat burn as it sips in...owhh its like ecstasy...lurve that touch....n finally time for desserts!!!...there were 5 of us and we were all quite full after a satisfyin meal..so we decided to 'start off' with 2 bowls of cendol 1st...DEFINITION OF CENDOL: SUPERB...NEVER TASTED BEFORE...WORTH IT AS THE COCONUT SYRUP IS THICK AND SWEET..BROWN SUGAR SYRUP IT ALSO QUITE THICK...RICH IN OTHER INGREDIENTS DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF CENDOL THAT U GO FOR..FLAVOURS: COCONUT..BABA NYONYA..MANGO..LONGAN..ETC...AND YEAH NOT FORGETTING THAT THE FRUITS INCLUDED ARE OF BIG CHUNKS..BUDGET: RM2.50-RM5..its that kewl!....we ended up eating 5 bowls!...cendol craze was in d' air!!!
half heartedly we left the shop...(duh!...v spent almost 2 hrs in that small area plungin into our food like hooligans,...haha,,,..also to mention, the crowd that poured in always kept the place busy and a lil stuffy...but seems like no one minds such a situation when the food is FANTABULOUS!!!!..
since we were in jonker;'s street..no point leavin without gettin the feel of the place 1st...so..besides the f00d available there...its the place itself..crowded...busy...new faces...many colours....hawker stalls...cheap stuffs...n yeah not missin the collection of boutiques...varities of a wide range and of a reasonable price...for a moment i felt like i was in little india in penang( the best place i usually shop for my deepavali outfits and for
any other special occasions)..situation in both these spots were more likely the same..
we walked and we walked n we walked tirelessly..untill v reached stadhuy's buliding..y not walk to mp..just a lil further passing by kota a famosa and crossing dataran pahlawan...YES v did!!!...all the way to mp to get some oreo McFlurry frm McD..hehehe...naughty gals as my mum mentioned wen i told her bout my fun adventure hahah...then left central at about 4.30 and finally reached kmm..excited...and lil exhausted!!..but we were more relaxed...felt gr8 as it ws a wonderful outing...in addition to spending quality time with my best friends!!!./...at least a memory v made..something to look at when i turn back to my past (in the future).
it was indeed a memorable day for me and as well as my friends!...
moral of the story: make full use of the chance u get in any circumstances!!...
Eg:...that;s what we did...supposed to go to temple and turn back to college by n00n..bt jonker's street tempted us in..hehehexx....and y not...???!...once in a while is no harm!!!...in fact its better for us as we gt to relax our mind...hehe.v didnt want to waste a trip s v;ve came all the way!
likewise...v all should make full use of a chance we get provided its beneficial to us.. :D

Full oF EXperience...
in a nutshell it was simply GREAT!!!!..
wish i could work longer...
till the day i checked f0r my matric results online. Man!!! I made it!!! My parents were making a great big deal about it but i was not excited at all; duh!..it is not even in the list. Well, it was supposed to be the last option though. But, truthfully never wanted to do matriculation. I wanted something better for myself, I always did! Usually it is me who brain wash my parents but this time it was the other way round! They some how convinced me about the programme and i don't know..i had and still have second thoughts till now. I wonder if i am at the right place!
As usual, i enrolled myself in KMM, i rather mention it as MMC (sounds prestigious: turns me on Melaka Manipal college)..or Melaka Matriculation College, on the 10th of May. The place was not my type definitely!!..So wanted to make a u-turn and hit back to Ipoh...a place i call HOME!!!I could dream on it at least!
So back to registration, it went fast and i got into my room, cleaning things up and settling down. I was the first one 2 check into my room, so, i got the golden chance to choose the best spot for myself. Ideal: A bed by the window which faces the south and when i wake up i face the EAst. PERFECT! Then, came in my lovely looking room-mates. First meeting aint have anything much to say as i was still clinging on to my mum and my little brother (owh! so miss them!). Leaving them ( the two i mentioned especially) was tough as i am quite attached to them. The atmosphere went a little sentimental-heartbreaking-(heavy downpours). I thought for a moment if this is the life i had always looked out for! =(
The whole miserable week was some boring and surprisingly hactic orientation week. It was so BAD that i cried almost evryday being homesick!..i wasnt the only one who thought so, my friends did too! We equally felt that this wasnt the right place for us. Thank god i have nice aunties and uncles who kept boosting my spirit as it slipped. They consistently SMSed me throughout the week motivating me. It did help a little.
Besides i was also kept alive by my 'noisy', jovial friends. They are the closest people i have right now and they are just the best! We often hang around and crack silly jokes and burst out laughing like mad at the cafeteria especially (Don't mind us girls). At least we kept ourselves busy and in that way we won't really think of the hardship that we went through!..It was a good practicable, physchological activity!..
..well being my very first post i believe i touched on emotions a lot because that was one of the aspects i was weakest at!!..
wait till i chalk down my next entry..*sayonara
P.S.: also missing school!!!!!!!! t00 many wonderful memories. Wish i had a time machine.=p
~~~~~those were the dayzzzz~~~~~~~~~
