“If only I could do that”. This one is shoddier than your zit which has a unique way of popping up on thanksgiving or a wedding. We’ve all been through this “if only” phase and sadly it has never worked. It has always left the person drained emotionally and with a bitter mood for days. A friend of mine, who was dumped by her boyfriend never got another one because she thought it was her fault that he left her and regretted it to the point of obsession. Everyone other than her knew that the break-up was not her fault, and that some guys just want to play the field. Many of us think along these lines, “if only I ....., It wouldn’t have happened”. But it did.
We all know that the past cannot be changed. If it could be, it wouldn’t be called the past. Of course, we understand that regret, at times, is unbearable. But you can’t go back and change what has happened. Grieve but don’t well up in it. Regret, but not unproductively. The “if only” regret is unproductive and would not give you any output.
Befriend people who I consider a good influence, but don't expect them to be saints.
They may make mistakes because they don't realize they have the virtues you see in them. Never give up.
Spend a good amount of your time reading about something beneficial towards your intelligence and keep updated about society.

In the Asian, African and Latin American countries, well over 500 million people are living in what the World Bank has called "absolute poverty".
Every year 15 million children die of hunger.
For the price of one missile, a school full of hungry children could eat lunch every day for 5 years.
Throughout the 1990's more than 100 million children will die from illness and starvation. Those 100 million deaths could be prevented for the price of ten Stealth bombers, or what the world spends on its military in two days!
The World Health Organization estimates that one-third of the world is well-fed, one-third is under-fed one-third is starving- Since you've entered this site at least 200 people have died of starvation. Over 4 million will die this year.
One in twelve people worldwide is malnourished, including 160 million children under the age of 5.
The Indian subcontinent has nearly half the world's hungry people. Africa and the rest of Asia together have approximately 40%, and the remaining hungry people are found in Latin America and other parts of the world. Hunger in Global Economy
Nearly one in four people, 1.3 billion - a majority of humanity - live on less than $1 per day, while the world's 358 billionaires have assets exceeding the combined annual incomes of countries with 45 percent of the world's people. UNICEF
Half of all children under five years of age in South Asia and one third of those in sub-Saharan Africa are malnourished.
In 1997 alone, the lives of at least 300,000 young children were saved by vitamin A supplementation programmes in developing countries.
Malnutrition is implicated in more than half of all child deaths worldwide - a proportion unmatched by any infectious disease since the Black Death.
About 183 million children weigh less than they should for their age
The assets of the world's three richest men are more than the combined GNP of all the least developed countries on the planet.
Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger.
It is estimated that some 800 million people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition, about 100 times as many as those who actually die from it each year.
Influence public policy to support poor people. Governments play a key role in allocating resources and adopting policies that influence the lives of poor and hungry people.
Contribute financially to reducing hunger and poverty. While it is, in general, not possible to support individual poor families, it is possible to contribute to organizations that do support poor people.
It is truly a learning experience to all of you. Spending quality time away from the T.V. can help you delve into the minds and hearts of your loved ones, allowing you to help them with any problems they may be experiencing and getting to genuinely know them. Studies have shown that children that eat dinner as a family are less likely to do drugs, alcohol, or be depressed. Just fifteen minutes a day with family can deeply help everyone involved.
Love what I do!
Do what you love- If we can finally admit that we are in need of something to fill the void in our life that eats at us every moment. Do not think that loving a partner, even a distant friend will make you become suddenly happy. Satisfaction is only obtained through the knowledge of realization that only a true passion that will return to you its rewards, and then will satisfy your void and human thirst for fulfillment. Love something, that will give back and that you will not have expectations for! Be in control.
Decide what it is making I feel a bad person.
Everybody's different and we can't be somebody else. Though if what is making you feel like a bad person is a quality, identify it. Sometimes growth requires change. We can always be a better person. Focus on one quality on time, and be consistent with the change you want to make. Over time, little by little you can make yourself that better person. Remember you can't change your past, but you are the only person that can change the person you are in the future. It starts now.
Always think that helping others helps me.
Act as though someone is watching me, feeling good inside and be satisfied with whom I've become.
Make changes slowly.
Try one new behavior at a time. We cannot become a better person overnight. It is a process. You should change your habits and your mind will follow. A habit forms and breaks with one month.
Still the same topics but this part i want to elaborate more about how to achieve dean list (well i survey how people with dean list do every day), i hope that this piece of advise will somehow help you though. First, i do notice this kind of people revise their studies every day (especially at night) and challenge themselves to the toughest when it come to doing homework (tutor, assignment at whatever that can be done). Next, they reduce their social and playing time by a lot so they can spent more time studying (its kind of hard for me though but i tried it and find it quite interesting habit to do). Also, the most important part is that the never stop themselves to be close to Allah S.W.T by praying (for example recite the Al-Quran, and pray so that they could be bless with confident and intelligence). Hmm..i think that is all i can elaborate about how to achieve the dean list.So i hope you guys can practice the "key of success" and achieve your goal as clever student...Thank you ^^
Based on my result this semester there is still a chance for me to get a dean list, im quite adapt to the surrounding of studying but got some problem with memorizing. Some of the people prefer memorizing instead of calculation like me but its their studying style and cant do much about it actually. By the way, subject for my first semester its kind of tough because i hard transfer all the easy stuff early when im in diploma, but i guess its pretty neat when come to year of studying. Instead of 4 years i can "cut" myself into 3 years of studying instead. Back to the main topic, as a degree student i have dedicated myself to be more responsible and determinant so that no more "lolly-gagging" and day-dreaming. So as a conclusion, less time to play and focus more on the studying. I heard people often said that "if you put yourself to the limit,sure you got yourself a medal" and for simple "determine + hardworking attitude = success in life". So there as pretty good chance to get dean list for this semester....(I hope ^^)
As we mark World Humanitarian Day today, the biggest humanitarian challenge in the world is the drought crisis in the Horn of Africa - which could become a catastrophe. But it's a catastrophe we can all help prevent. If we learn lessons from the past and act fast, we can save hundreds of thousands of lives. And we can stop droughts like this having such an impact in future years.

Second, minutes, hour, day, and even a few week had pass by...So didn't you guys notice anything?
Ramadhan is almost come to the end (well not really "that" end XD), and this part is where the miracle happen. As foretold at the 10 days before end of Ramadhan there is going to be a really special night called "Malam Lailatul-Qadar", this is where ALLAH S.W.T as mentioned in the HOLY BOOK OF AL-QURAN is being sent to earth on that night.
As the entry mention earlier, the Ramadhan month isn't just for the delightful food but it is where Muslims are to be tested in both physical and mental.This is where they enter into a period of decipline and worship. Ramadhan are very famous with the “Tarawih" which is performed only during Ramadan of the Islamic calendar after Salāt of Isha'a. People of Muslim believe it is customary to attempt a khatm "complete recitation" of the Qur'an in Ramadan by reciting at least one juz' per night in tarawih. Tarawih prayers are considered optional, not mandatory. A majority of Muslims also also regard Tarawih prayers as Sunat al-Muakkadah.
It is recommended that Muslims attend the tarawih prayers in the mosque (after 'isha, the last evening prayer), to pray in congregation. This is true for both men and women. However, one may also perform the prayers individually at home. These prayers are voluntary, but are strongly recommended and widely practiced.
It’s that time of year again, where from afar you can see the smoke and smell the delicious aroma of the meat, ikan bakar and ayam percik wafting all over the place and you discover that your stomach isn’t a bottomless pit. Yes, the bazaars are back. The celebration of the holy Ramadan festival brings along a unique experience that can be enjoy by all Malaysian. During this festive season one can get to sample a variety of authentic and delicious Malay cuisine which is freshly prepare for the Muslim to break their fast.
You can find your favorite food, whether it is the traditional Malay dishes, like nasi kerabu, nasi berlauk, nasi dagang, nasi beriyani or traditional cakes or kuih, like kasui, popia, kuih pelita, lepat pisang and popular drinks, like cendol, coconut, sugar-cane and cincau. You can also find Kelantanese dishes of ayam and ikan percik, and evergreen Malay dishes like gulai masak pedas, rendang tok, opor daging, ikan kari, ikan patin masak tempoyak and other favorite dishes. The dishes are not easily found in one place during normal days but popular at bazaar.
Ramadhan is coming. It is prosperous month and it is a month for all the muslims to seize their lust. Ok, that's a blessing, but how we're gone to overcome this ramadhan season? I believe there's a lot of challenge we have to face in our fasting month.
During daylight, muslims are ordered not to eating and drinking. That’s one tough job, but what if there are some of your friends were not fasting. Oh yeah, that's one tough day for you to overcome it. So, what did I do to overcome this situation? Simple, just go to mosque and take an
Class. That’s one daily task for the student even in this ramadhan. The class was still going on. I know some of you will have to walk to go to their class. What makes it challenging is that you have to walk under hot scorch sun. I bet your throat is like barren lands that extremely need tons of water.
Developmental reading disorder also called dyslexia, is a reading disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols. The disorder is a specific information processing problem that does not interfere with one's ability to think or to understand complex ideas. The problem is inside the brain, but it doesn't mean the person is dumb. Most people with dyslexia have normal intelligence, and many have above-average intelligence. Dyslexia makes it tough to read and spell. Plenty of smart and talented people struggle with dyslexia. With some help and a lot of hard work, a kid who has dyslexia can learn to read and spell. Consider the lists of famous dyslexics hereunder. Those famous people are great examples. Their stories can improve self-esteem, belief in one-self, and pride. They can motivate everyone with a learning disability.
Thanks for reading our article. Although it not much, but I hope you all can feel what we want to express. OK, for this topic entry, we will start with some of the simple question, Ready?
Please answer this:
Is electrical energy is important for you?
How often do you use the electrical appliance for 1 day?
Finally, have you all been experience electrical disturbance?
I confident you all can answer for those first 2 questions. But I also assume that you were provoked by the third question. Generally, power disruption can be happening to all over the places in Malaysia. Maybe some of you may be positive thinking by assuming that “Oh, maybe the TNB men just doing their common upgrade or maintenance”. Yeah, it is good that some of you were positive thinking, but what if this power disruption frequently happens in your place. This event can sure make your lappy fried their processor. For me, power disruption is SUCK!!!. Why? This is some of the info that I can give you:
Every 80% appliance in our home was electrical power.
Even your source of entertainment in your house is using electrical power.
No air-cond or fan, that absolutely makes you hot and going to berserk.
The worse part, can you see where the heck you are going in a pitch black situation?
So, why this power out-age happens? There are many causes of power failures in an electricity network. Examples of these causes include faults at power stations, damage to electric transmission lines, substations or other parts of the distribution system, a short circuit, or the overloading of electricity mains. Power failures are particularly critical at sites where the environment and public safety are at risk. Institutions such as hospitals, sewage treatment plants, mines, etc., will usually have backup power sources, such as standby generators, which will automatically start up when electrical power is lost. Other critical systems, such as telecommunications, are also required to have emergency power. Telephone exchange rooms usually have arrays of lead-acid batteries for backup and also a socket for connecting a generator during extended periods of outage.
Has anyone experience living in the hostel before?? any difficulties?? well now i tell you about the dirty little secret in our college. hmmm.. imagine life without water.. how are we suppose settle our hygiene problem.. this really tough i tell u.. where are we gonna dispose our "excrement"?? especially for those with "high" metabolism. there is a time where i accidentally see a cute little "chocolate pudding" in the toilet bowl.. and i was like "OMG people drop their "BOMB" without flushing!!?".. how uncivilized this people are.. did they know the use of flush?? well, actually it's not their fault but the college instead. i know some of u guys had experience this before, but what i'm going to highlight in here is the management of the college is too sloppy.. why didn't they take immediate action regarding this issue..

Wow!!!! so many people on registering day. got some over here and there wandering around near every available MICET counter. "Miss, what do I need to do before proceed to the registration counter" asked me and my fellow friend to the assistant committee. "First sort all your document according to the requirement" she said , then we started wandering around.. AGAIN, AGAIN and AGAIN. Yet finally I got our spot to sort all of our document. while at the table, I can see many familiar faces and yet they "SUFFER" the same problem in finding spot for document sorting. Even we are the "EX" student we being treat like a "freshie" student. Half an hour pass by, i'm already finish with the registration matter and "OMG it's finally over!!!" I think.
Next journey is to "DRAG" all the belongings into my "LUXURY" dorm. "Arghhh" What the heck is this about. 3rd floor?? Why there is no lift or escalator?? But i'm grateful that there is a place for me to stay. I don't know what's gonna happen in the future, but hopefully it would gone well. Although we always complaint about the college weakness, we hope that our college will take action for their own goodness. (yeah, i'm suppose so). Well, thank you all cause willing to read my 1st entry. got to go. Need "recharge". Bye
