I went to Singapore to help out and attend my cousin's wedding. Tuesday, my mom, my untie, sis and i went to Bugis street...There are actually two prominent shopping areas in Bugis, namely Bugis Junction and Bugis Village. Bugis Junction is a large, modern shopping centre whereas Bugis Village, just across the street, is a pasar malam -styled (night market) shopping space that has dark, narrow corridors and is crammed with small stalls selling cheap clothes, bags, watches and food. (a bit same with our china town)... i bought myself a bag there..hehe!! Wednesday, my cousin's wedding date. The wedding ceremony is situated at Amara Hotel which near to Tanjong Pagar MRT station...i am the Emcee for the ceremony..damn nervous!!!Luckily not muct mistake i had done...

We also went to Singapore river there take photo...My mom bought a lot of thing for herself and her friends...At night, we went to orchard road to see Christmas tree..Very excited that Christmas is coming soon.. Friday, we went to the Fo Ya Shi temple...i take lots of photo...Due to raining day, we cancel the plan go to Sentosa.Hopefully next time got chance to visit again... Saturday, i m in Malaysia...

Anyway, i am now update this blog for those who wanna know what am i doing recently... i am having semester break now and i actually went to the court for 3 weeks attachment...i learned a lots of new things there as well as gain the court experience... i am currently attaching to a legal firm which situated in Damansara Utama...I will be here for 4 weeks and this is my second week here.

Today is my first day of exam! I found no words to describe how tension i am! Yesterday night i slept at about 2:30am and today morning i woke up at 6:30am.. Everything is just because of the Jurisprudence paper! I think, the jurisprudence paper is meant for those students who are very good in English and have ton of ideas. The studies of Jurisprudence is all about the legal philosophy and I actually not really like it. Why? Hmm.. The reason i don't like this subject is because i am not really good in English and i cant express my opinion in English fluently. I am thinking...how good if i can write in Chinese!Haha~ Anyway, i learn a lesson. That is : - " I need to improve my English and my writing skill! " (Thats why i am blogging in English! ^o^) Although I am nervous and stressful, but i am glad the exam is started finally. Once it start, i know where is the end! Haha.. Jia You!!! :) Good Luck for all my friends who are having the exam too! All the Best ya! Lets Gambate!! Fighting~
Separate LRT coaches for men and women is a new gender issue that hotly debate recently. In my opinion, it is not appropriate as it is difficult to separate the crowd. As we all know, during the peak hour, there is always the situation that women more than men. If this is enforced, some of them may miss their trip. This will be a waste of time. It will be more complicated for the passenger to choose the coach. On the other hand, what's going to happen with potential tourists especially the mat sallehs? Obviously, they will feel weird with our cultural and if they are in one groups(men and women) it will probably discourage them from take LRT. Malaysia will reflected as a very conservative country and apperently show that we are practising and enforcing the islamic conventional morality. Come on.. we are multi-racial country... Such rule will ‘smear the reputation’ of a city... What is the root of the problem? Gender sensitivity. The community must be educated to respect each other. Segregation is not the answer. Men are everywhere. Sexual harassment can take place anywhere as well. Instead of focusing the gender issues and coming up with mind of numbing rules, it would be better to think of ways to educate boys and men on being respectful to women. I think, introduce gender sensitivity at all levels of education, primary, secondary and tertiary is a must!
After a week of the marathon study, i decided to take a break when one of my coursemate- Sok Ting told me that she got the tickets of 988 live Concert! So, yesterday night we spend our whole night in Sunway breach!!!Unexpectedly, we met a lot of UM friends...Haha!!Undergraduates nowaday are so passionate with the concert ya!!What more fantastic is we saw the artists came out from Sunway Hotel and i like crazies who just keep press the camera's capture button!Btw, too bad the artists walk too fast and i cant really capture a nice photo... The concert was really crowded but enjoyable!
It’s not been a particularly eventful day, but it’s probably for that reason that I’m feeling the need to do an update right now. Life is too monotonous...everyday keep doing the same thing!Sigh!! Haha, as the above title, obviously you can guess where am i now. Seem everyday, i will come over to hang around at the library. Well, i am actually appreaciate that we have a nice library at this Law School. But too bad its always so cold ...almost frozen even got 2 sweater!!Perhaps we are at London now!Haha~ (Just another cold jok from Nicole-my hardworking coursemate who study together with me in library...) With exam season coming soon, and the inevitable increase of studiers in the library, i become more stress and nervous! 3rd years, not a year of relaxing...it entails a lot of reading and brain storm. Not much time left, i feel that i really need to swot for the exam. I asked around my coursemate and seniors as well to give me an idea of the topics probably coming in the exam. This had me a little concerned, as you never know what's coming in the test and questions tend to be kinda tricky. Hopefully the exam question not too difficult lar... Hmm...ok lar...I need to go... THE HORRIBLE TEXT BOOKS ARE WAITING FOR ME TO OPEN THEM ...
Recently, as SPM result had been released, the issue of whether Matriculation or STPM to take become the hot debate topic. Many students seem like no direction in their future. As usual, I have been littering my two cents here and there in few forums that i used to visit. There is also an article which wrote by myself have been published in Nan Yang Siang Poh last week.
I decided to copy one of my ramblings over from recom's forum. In the following, I modified the text a little bit to make it more coherent and reader-friendly. All aboard! Off we go...
The question posted by the forumer sound:
For those unfortunate souls who failed to obtain straight A1s in SPM, do you intend to go for matriculation if you are offered a spot?Would you opt for STPM instead?Or would it be A levels?Since our chances of getting jpa are pretty slim, let us discuss about the possible ways to continue our education..As for matriculation, can we be guaranteed a place in a public uni of our choice with a course we want if we manage 4As?
As a pioneer of matriculation's chinese student, who are doing my 3rd years in UM currently, i think matriculation is the best and easier pathway to enter local university. With reference of the past few years record, it is true enough that a large number of the matriculation students get places in local universities. Thus, it is not suprising that we often heard that students who do matriculation are guaranteed of places. I am not going to elaborate on matters deemed sensitive. The poor STPM students despite getting very good results have to fight it out among themselves to secure places for critical courses.
Anyhow, some people may contended that study STPM will be more easier when they further their tertiary in university. There is also some comment of STPM student is smarter or more execellent than matriculation student. For me, that is pure rubbish! After you sucuessfully entered University, you will realize that everyone is start from zero!(Especially for my course!)
To tell the truth, i got a friend who previously same matriculation with me, did his Pharmacy Degree in UM now. He is one of the Top student in that particular course!!! So, don't simply believe the rumours that STPMers is more execellent! There are intelligent students who originate from the Matriculation system. Even smarter than STPM students. Apparently, if you're intelligent, it doesn't matter which system you originate from. Besides, noone is going to ask whether you are originated from STPM or Matriculation after you complete your degree...
After the reply, I also get some feed back. One of the forumer contended that matriculation syllabus is very easy if compared to STPM. Here, i would like to quote his word.
"matrics student study the PRE-U course in a YEAR or less than it i would say, whoile STPM students need to undrgo 1.5 yrs of strenous day..do bear in mind, how r them suppose to cover up all the sllybus in less than a yr? i personally doubts the QUALITY and depth of knowledge gained in matricualtion...many of my frens who were stpmers, insist that while there ARE some BRILLINAT matrics student in Uni, but sadly to say, most of them STRUGGLE while in Uni, cuz the knowledge they gain in MATRICS are not adequate, so my main qustion is..how can we claim that the std of matric is on par with stpm? if it is, then y matrics is not INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED and considering the fact thta many MATRICS student dpget 4.0 flat and the absurd ratio between matrics and stpm top scorer do makes me ponder( im not BIASED ,btw), is the std matriculation on par with STPM... and i would like to plead..do plz show some respect to f6 students who have managed to get a spot in local Uni, they deserve ou respect..." To certain extent i did actually agree with him but personally i think that if you want to score a distiction no matter in matriculation or university, you have to equip yourself with some extra knowledge and studies assiduously. There is actually some student who studied in matriculation but always demand themselves to reach the STPM level!If they themselves do not swotted or hard study, they are definately going to suffer during their 1st years in University. I admit that Matriculation syllabus is far more easier than STPM. (My sis use to be Form-6 student last time...and i myself had also compare the both syllabus before) However, i did come across some point of view of the undergraduate, they opined that there are actually not much difference of level for Matriculation and STPM student... But, undeniable, for medicine course there is still a vast gap for matric student to battle and catch up. Anyhow, as far as what i have seem in UM, matriculation student still not left behind the STPMers. Although some of the matriculation student will struggle for their studies when they notice that some of the syllabus yet covered but what benefit them is they already adapt the uni life. STPMers may not able to accomodate themselves to the change quickly. Matric will never echo to STPM. But it is an easier pathway to get a place in local University.
Matriculation or STPM? You have to play your cards right.
Hey...what are you doing lately? As for me, i am battle with tons of school work. Many replacement classes were to be held and even weekend have lectures nowadays...Oh ya..is my jurisprudence lecture. Whole batch of 3rd years were obliged to attend the jurisprudence lecture during Saturday and Sunday...We hv no other choices because our beloved jurisprudence lecturer Dr. Badariah had called to the judicial commission...She is a judge now!!Life is so unexpected!! Lecturer yesterday but a High Court judge today~ Now, our juris class will takeover and conduct by a part time lecturer... Frankly, almost a month time abondon jurisprudence...and this weekend have to attend the lecture... i really can't adjust and tune my mood to study for it~ Dunno whether can catch up the lesson or not? Hmm..you think the lecturer will able to complete the syllabus on time? I m uneasy in my mind about the upcoming final exam now~ Oh~ feel helpless~ As you know, Law is really not an easy subject and my studies entails a lot of hard work.... After the incident nearly being barred from doing attachment, i am now feel so stress! Nighmares about failing exam and restraining from proceed to final year~
I finished the last episodes of the drama of Hanakimi yesterday..I know a lot of people have actually finished it early than me but i m still very exciting...For those who haven't watch this drama...you must go and download ya~Although download is infringed of copyright but it seem common now...Just ignored the copyright lar... i don't think it will have any enforcement of the law ...The story of this drama is actually very spacial (at least different from other drama la)^0^~They called it "most man drama" Haha :PThis story is about a girl(Ella) transfer to a boy's school for her studies... then..what will happened? Sorry, i not going to tell you, go and watch it yourself..hehe
i saw Bridge to Terabithia last week with YLS concert friends after the reunion dinner.. Although many of them contended the movie is bored but i like this movie however. The story is full of the cretivities and the two children found their own palace with the imagination... In such imaginative world, they become brave and they start to change in their own personality. The little guy very cute because he look very innocent...haha~He like drawing and he tend to draw out many character which he do not has. I like the girl in the movie very much. She very pretty and passionate.. but too bad she perished about the end of the movie.. Anyhow,at least her spirit forever stay with the little guy..not too frustrated~ but overall its seem like sth uncomplete... Maybe is my own desire to see the little guy to success in sth about the drawing..haha~
