Well, World's is a tournament, where the universities from all around the world (hence the name World's) enters the tourney for debate.
I checked yesterday, and there's 391 teams!! Whoa!!!
Been uptight lately due to loads of decision to be made. Who to be sent there, confirmation, flight tickets, bla bla bla. But all's been good. All done in the end!!
While i'm kinda worried that we ain't prepare no shit, but heck, i'm pretty confident with our capabilities. So just chill...
Things to make u jealous:

Shit... Damned bored sitting at home. Been on a Dota/CS streak for like, gosh i dunno how long.
The latest news is down right scary man.... Hindraf associated with terrorist group? The Tamil Tigers? Walaueh.... Is it the truth or just the gov spinning the media? hmmm...
Fly FM's got some kinda, well, catchy ad's lately. Heard the Digi's latest one? It sounded really really gay.... "Jonathan! Omg, U look grreeaaaatt..." Keep your ears up on tht... Haha!
Another one was the S'pore package thing, "My husband la, never let me drive.." Sounds really like Rosie, but high pitched. Hahaha....
Sigh.... Hands itchy but went googling for Destiny Gundam again... Aiyo it really rocks la.. But got no money to buy ady.. All went to fix my car. Shit....
Normal Master Grade is at RM 160.. Extreme Burst mode is at RM 240. Wat's the difference?
The translucent wings, extra parts, chrome coat. Do all the these worth the extra 60 bucks? (Do all these plastic junk worth 200 bucks???) Yeah i'm sure some will be asking me the question in the bracket...
If it's just the extra parts, i guess i'll settle for a normal MG Destiny. If the Burst modes give a better body articulation, then yeah!
But it's my obsession!! I've got really weak points for gundam and sport shoes. WTF...
On the other hand, Strike Noir looks great as well.
During the Raya hols i almost, ALMOST buy this. Too bad i couldn't find the ATM. The boss give me a 20% discount, so it's only at RM 125. Otherwise it's 155. ARGH!!!
OH well... Tht's it about my obsessions... Nay.. I don't expect ppl to give me gundams for my birthday nor any other occasions. Fuck it's super expensive la.
But it'd be nice though to receive it as a gift... hahaha

Well duh, i don't think it's viable for me to name the post directly as to the big issue happening in our beloved (?) country. Well if u still don get what i mean, read the title fast.
From what i've gathered, the issues raised was these:
1. Temple being demolished
2. They demanded to be compensated, from the UK gov for bringing in labour from India during their occupation in Malaya. Specifically, they demanded RM 1 million for each person, thus amounting to RM 4 trillion (tht's alot of zeros).
3. A more transparent election.
The gov argues:
1. The rally was illegal.
2. The rally disrupts peace, especially the traffic.
1. Gov, esp Pak Lah, is really pissed.
2. The Indians, though not all, are really pissed too.
3. The shopkeepers where the rally was held, are even pissed-er. Their shops were practically wrecked.
4. Drivers (like me) are pissed with all those roadblocks.
Conclusion? Everyone is pissed off. And for what reasons? Urgent and important issues, yes. But not to the extend till to take it to the international level. When the Hindraf leaders brought the issue to UN, as well as ICJ (International court of justice), I feel this is really too much.
1. Gov have left the Indians out especially in the economic growth.
2. Gov has oppressed the Indians.
Gov denies both accusations.
When i first read of it, i felt like laughing out loud. Like WTF... Newsflash guys, like they're not the only one left out. Nay, i think the better word is that 'not focused upon'. But we're doing ok too. And on the second accusation, they've yet to prove the oppression of the government towards the Indians.
But the thing is this, when an average Malaysian, especially the Indians for this case, read of such accusations, they're gonna get pissed. While the claim is definitely questionable, not all are gonna realise it due to the tension caused lately. In the end, most will just accept the fact that gov are oppressing the Indians, without asking for any proofs or whatsoever.
Well, IMHO, such issues can discussed WITHIN the country. What's the point of bringing this issues to UN, and ICJ?? Such disgrace to be placed upon Malaysia, especially by Malaysians ourselves!
A more transparent election? Hear hear to that. That is something everyone of us wants. While PAS claims of the 4000 phantom voters in the past election, they too have yet to present their prove.
What i feel we should be doing, is to ease off the tensions. Posting up bulletins which pretty much screams "HATE" is not helping out. Some UMNO dude suggesting that those involved in the rally should have their citizenship revoked, that is not helping either. Both actions are bound to create further tensions.
What we should do is, understand the whole situation. What i've said here doesn't necessarily points out the whole issue accurately. BUT, we really gotta help ease the situation, by not provoking any parties. No dudes not listening/not talking does not count. Expression of opinions are definitely important, as long as it is just and not too one-sided.
A'ight. Enough talking here. Feedbacks welcomed.

I’m pretty sure some of us, in fact, many of us have come across such situations. Situations, when u wanted something or someone in particular, but just couldn’t have it. Problems like he/she doesn’t return your feelings, or inseparable differences, or anything of that sort. Simply put, rejections.
Many faced and came across rejections before. Even more have been on the evil side, the one who does the rejection. So, it’s not really foreign now eh?
What happened lately was this (it’s not unto me, but to friends who are close to me), how unfamiliar events cause them unable to react, and put them in quite a confused state.
To simplify the story, I’ll use a third person point of view, i.e. her.
She was content living alone, living a single life. She was carefree, and being able to do things she wants without any constraint or obligations to any other parties (except to the police of cos).
But then, she has her own desire, her feelings towards a particular man. She wanted to move on and take it to the next level with this man. But due to some circumstances, she was unable to.
But what I’m wishing to discuss is this part.
Came along this other guy, who adores the girl, who loves the girl for who she is, and respect her in whatever she does. In fact, he’s almost everything she wanted the man (the one she liked) to respond. But in the back of her mind, she seems unable to rid of the man. Everything the guy did, she compares him to the man.
While she’s upset that the man gave her some illogical reasons, e.g. of different financial status, bla bla bla, she resorts to the same thing. She gave pretty much unreasonable reason to the guy, for unable to accept him. No time, no money, bla bla bla.
The very problem that most of us face is this, at times we wanted something so much, we tend to brush aside other things that came along. So focused we were in pursuing that initial item, that we forgot to look at the beauty of these ‘side’ things. Who knows, the thing that we wanted so much in the first place, wasn’t as good as we thought it were. More often than not, because of the difficulty faced to achieve it, we tend to believe the end result will be worthy of the effort we’ve put in.
Not the case.
However clichéd this sounds, we should always appreciate the ones around us. Or rather, right in front of us.
So yeah, I pretty much talked on the same damn thing to my friends who come across to such situations. I feel, we should instead of placing all the attentions on the ones we had crush on, why not give the ones who’s feelings are sincere a chance.
In fact, why not give yourself a chance? A person, who’s willing to change for you, respect you, love you for you, why not give both of each other, a chance? I mean, such person doesn’t come along very often. And when he/she does, are you just gonna let him slip pass?
Happiness, I believe, doesn’t fall from the sky. It is instead, something worked out mutually and together.
The reason on how a couple stayed strong together, isn’t because of the number of happy moments they have. But instead, the number of unhappy moments, and how they overcome it. How they communicate, and work things out together. That, I believe, is how couples get stronger and stronger as the years pass.
I’m writing this post because I felt some of us, were unable to see the goods in life, which are right in front of them.
Of course I might be wrong, but I have my reasons. If u say otherwise, let’s hear it.
Hear ye hear ye indeed.
