The cool moves I had around uni

Inspired by final things to do before uni life ends, I kinda gave it a thought as to what have I done worth to be nominated for the Chemoster's craziest moves in UTP.

Well, I certainly sick of the routine I have here. Things like classes, assignments, meals, naps, basketball, sleeps, get-aways js keep looping day in day out.

Here goes:

1. First hang-over.
It's an after-prom party. We joined in and clubbed at Voodoo. It's my first visit. Nice beats, packed, pretty much happening. On a dare from ZP, had a few rounds one-go of pure Tequila. Shake the body, checked the floor, get low sorta things. In the end, puked a little, passed out, but yea, I had a great deal of fun! Unfortunately, some crooks snapped my stoned face. Damn..

2. Birthday prank 3 yrs back.
It's at the nitez of my birthday, the dudes asked to play basketball. Din sense anything amiss, I tagged along. At one point of the game, C.K, the pale-looking frail guy collapsed to floor after something (forgot). I was taken aback and dashed to him trying to wake him up. After much effort and some time (15mins), he remained unconscious. I knew nothing about first aid, but I knew well that this was getting critical. The others ain't did much too. In desperation, I asked someone to call a driver to send him to hospital. It's Chong (not mistaken), which then followed by the scene that Xi Yi holding a cake. Then only I realised that it's a show specially tailored for me. I think them Oscar stars and it's a sound plot too! They GOT me. This should stay with me for many many yrs!!! Thanks!!!

3. Silly offence in front of security in the noob year.
Was with a fren (w.k) walking towards IRC. He forgot to bring his matric card which may be punishable of something. Forgot about the reason, I handed him my matric card and had his Tailor college matric card instead. It so happened that the security confronted us. She found out that I was using matric card of other Uni. She condemned me that this could b a sign of disloyalty to UTP sorta stuff and made it like a big big deal. Being a noob, we din process much, we freaked out and kept admitting to the misconduct and apologising. That's how noob we're! No different than a plain sheet of paper!! I would have sounded her back if I were being selamba a lil more.

List goes on...

4. Awesome stunts regarding tests.
Once, I went for OM test knowing absolutely nothing, not only I lost track with the lecturer, nor I did a lil revision about it. Was too occupied. Of course, I was gonna cheat. The funny part is that it was Reja whom I peeped the answers from. He is a Turkmen who did pretty badly in academic but he seemed confident with his answer. Will find out whether it pays or not to buy him in time of trouble. The phrase that best describes my situation : "Ji Dou" in canto.
It's a big joke too about EIS test I had recently. I spared js a couple of hours going through the past year. Again, was too occupied. However, I actually nailed the paper. Study smart actually pays in this case. The funny part, it's Bayram (another Turkmen) who snatched over my question paper on which I circled my answers and passed me his question paper. I was left in suspend for a while. "Everybody" saw it but the invigilators. What's a stunt.

5. Bombastic club annual dinner
It's perhaps in my 2nd year when I organised the ICC club annual dinner which was at ballroom in Clear Water Sanctuary Golfclub. The dinner's arrangement is somewhat a breakthrough in the context of utp's culture, which I would say very much dominated by malay's culture. We divided the dinner into 2 sessions. First half is pretty much official as we had award giving and dining in presence of the rector. Prior to the second half, we sent off the rector and pumped in some good energy with Auntie Mable band performing live. Pushing aside the tables to make up some space for a dance floor, everyone was sort of got high and moved along. At points, it might go a lil wild. But it's definately awesome watching them having so much of fun.

Soon to leave uni

I got my final exam slip this afternoon, marking that I'm a soon to leave guy. Sadly, many deadlines are lining up yet, thanks to that I'm a chemical engineering student.

Roughly speaking, it's been 5 yrs me dwelling in this place. Here I had my ups and downs. I entered the uni as a totally independent entity as I knew nobody at all. Over time, I mingled around and found some dudes who share the interests of mine. During the freshman years, this was kind of easy as people were going to the same classes, and yea we knew each other little. We cooked maggi in the middle of nite and chat-chit yet went to classes the next day morning. That's fun.

As time flips, various factors kick-in leading to grouping, separation, alienation and stuffs. At some points of time, I sort of losing a lil sense of belonging, but yea friendship is something to be valued, managed and treasured on, I wouldn't say I've championed it but I guess I'm doing pretty well. Cuz I know well that being stuck in a deserted place like this or probably anywhere u go, friends or the companions are what cherish u.

As I've come along, shits happenned occasionally. But believe me or not, they do turn out to be sweet reminiscenes.

I constantly feel that this place way sucks but yea looking back in time, I did have quite some blast, ironically. I make new friends, I've grown up a lil, leaned a bunch, exprienced a variety of stuffs, and etc, all thanks to UTP.

I'm certainly looking forward to the day I'm leaving, and I hope that the remaining days are beautiful that no heatwave, no projects, no tests, sorta things. Dream on lar...

Pulau Redang is no longer meant for general public

Yet another controversy popped out in a place where nothing is impossible, the bolehland. I bet 100 bucks that you are for certain amazed to learn this.

Pulau Redang is set to be a high-end and exclusive tourist destination. Source.

Among the specifics given by Terengganu MB:
- Only hotels rated five-star and above will be allowed to be built.
- Hotel rate shall cost no less than US$500 (RM1599) a night.
- As a measure for curbing environmental destruction and indiscriminate littering.
- Budget tourists are asked to opt for Pulau Kapas and Pulau Perhentian.

Am thinking if there is conspiracy of making it a private island?? Like Pangkor Laut owned by YTL group which is exclusive and niched for the affluent class of people. Of so many preventive measures to abate the environmental damages as a result of massive tourism, do they actually need to resort to a move deemed as desperation.

Check out what others say about it.
Elitism is being practised openly
Resolve problem by raising money beyond everyone's reach

Quickiy book your flight to visit Redang or later you will be charged RM1600/nite.
