Double Kantoi!

Kena kantoi! Omg I got caught in the act of doing something.

JinnyboyTV and friends have just released their newest video of #kantoi featuring the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

I really enjoyed the video above since I've faced situations of seeing girls in eateries before. I usually see them sitting in a table in front of me. Normally, I'd keep quiet and steal glances at them until I finish my meal XD. What would you do when you run into a cute girl like the video above?

You guess what? Dan Khoo also has #kantoi!

Opportunity will present itself (Part 2)

I've previously looked at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus for a research project and made an enquiry to a young academic. She replied that she had no vacancy for a graduate student, and I stopped looking at Nottingham Malaysia.

Three months later, she forwarded a vacancy in another laboratory (in the same department) to my email. After looking at the job description and the academic's research profile, I was attracted to the nature and approach of his research and decided to give it a shot.

I was called for interview and what happened afterward is history. I can't thank God much enough for a good timing like this.

I started on 15 September 2014. Glad to be back in science!

What's up, A Pink?

I'm humming away with Mr. Chu since the end of March & following their success of debuting in Japan with NoNoNo and My My. And guess what? The ladies of fairy idols have something for us on 17th of November!

I'm pretty excited with this comeback and see what comes up! Meanwhile, I should get busy with my research.

Opportunity will present itself (Part 1)

After months of waiting, I'm finally proud to say that I'm now a graduate student. My study takes place at The University of Nottingham Malaysia campus in Semenyih, and I'm now one and a half months into my research project.

At the beginning of the year, I blogged about applying to Singapore. The application took me much effort to prepare, I had to read many papers to prepare a research proposal and also sat for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). The application eventually didn't materialise, and I was disappointed with the outcome. But, hindsight tells me things actually turned out to be much better than I've imagined.

My journey from Viewnet Hyperstore to i-Rocks Malaysia was kind of an adventure. While I was explaining a product to customers, the distributor of i-Rocks expressed interest in me, and hence my journey to i-Rocks Malaysia. Opportunity presents itself in ways you never imagined possible. My take home message is, be faithful to your work and the reward will come to you at the appropriate timing.

Had I not worked at Viewnet I wouldn't have met the opportunity.

Working with i-Rocks Malaysia presented new things to learn about, I learnt about the world of gaming, specifically Dota2. I learnt about the special demands of professional gaming. I learnt about mechanical keyboards and their advantages. I learnt about doing public relations. I learnt about managing gaming tournaments. I got to meet people like Summer Liew and Wynnie.

But I've experienced the world class Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. No doubt I contributed to the society in some way or the other and moved things forward. Deep in my heart, I wanted something more.

#Apink my eating idols

A Pink members are now promoting in Japan for their Japanese debut. I really like their Japanese rendering of their hits, for some of their Japanese lyrics are beautiful when put in words.

While promoting the members never stop being dorks that they are.

Especially when they are having their meals!

Can I have one piece, Cho Rong?

I never mind they spoiled their image while eating. I still love them for it, and continue to love them for the idols they are.

And I will fondly remember them forever for being eating idols hahahahaha

NoNoNo (Japanese) - A Pink

I've known about A Pink's plan to debut in Japan for some time in variety show A Pink's Showtime. Now that their debut song is out, I had a listen. The song turned out very good in Japanese! The MV is just as cute as the Korean version.

Looking forward to more A Pink's song in the future! I'll always support them in whatever they do.

Namewee Tokok: Merdeka Q & A

During the course of the video, members of the RED People were quizzed on facts about Malaysia. I can understand that they pretended not to know the answers, that's perfectly fine for the purpose of entertaining us.

But at the end of the video, when members of the public were asked the same questions, I find it a read shame that many of them can't answer the question properly. What's more appalling is that school students don't even have knowledge of the national anthem despite singing it EVERY WEEK during their school assembly.

Has our education gone down the drain? We have a generation not knowing of their purpose in the country, and one is left wondering where the entire nation is heading to.
