what tarot card are you?

as seen on daus' blog. told you i'm a genius.

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

one down...one to go.

as it turned out, the paper wasn't that easy. but i found some funny things in the paper.

during the exam review, the teacher warned us, "do not try to ask any questions to the invigilator. if you do, i will deduct five points from your total score." OK...whatever dude...

so, i was at my seat...and the invigilator said, "you can now start reading your questions..please make sure that the number of pages is the same as what is stated on the cover page."

so i read..

1. This Question paper consists of FIVE pages (excluding the cover page) with FOUR Questions only.

i counted the sheets.

eh...why only four meh? if i ask a question, will i get 5 points deducted for nothing? so i left it, when i saw there were four questions at the back anyway.

spent 10 minutes reading and rereading the questions. making sure that i don't get mislead by grammatical errors. here's one question, verbatim.

Question. 4.
What approach did the company take to implementing the system in term of resources and organizational structure, given the strategic vision of the senior manager? What types of information you think a marketing executives need?

trying to read past the errors was one thing. trying to figure out which "company" the question was referring to was another, since question 1 referred to the company in the case, question 2 referred to TMNet and question 3 referred to AT&T.

really, shouldn't they have someone who vets through the examination questions before they get printed? jeez...

you're wondering how i did? i walked out after 2 hours and 15 minutes...i couldn't see myself writing anything else until 11pm.

i just hope i get through this.

last minute woman

5 more hours to go till my Multimedia Mocketing final.

i've been sitting in this cafe in cyberjaya for the past 3 hours, "reading" my slides...in between surfing and chatting. i'm expecting to be brain dead when the exam finishes at 11pm tonight. so friends, standby to pick me up from the campus OK!

5 more chapters to browse through. yes, browse. because here's the dilemma. the teacher said that if he finds that our answers are following what the book says, he's going to deduct points. cheh. so maybe it's better if i didn't read much. plus the slides are full of grammatical errors anyway and i am struggling to understand the sentences.

wish me luck!

ps: yea, i think i'm so smart, making fun of the class. i hope i don't get below a B minus. heheee.

this is one of the many dream cars of a 6 year old boy i know.

it must be liberating to have dreams that are uninhibited by financial constraints, public perception and impossibilities.

Uptown turned Cowboytown

Too laid back...

Perhaps too much peace and quiet can be detrimental to a person's well being. This boredom is eating me from inside...there's nothing else to do in KL. Well, unless you want to hit the shopping malls...! I'm running out of procrastination reasons, so i'm chilling out listening to music, while attempting to write my 4 page strategic analysis.

Can't wait for Wednesday to come, so I can resume my bitching about the traffic and the noise.

....just finding things to complain about. muhahaha.

Happy Chinese New Year!

i obviously have too much time on my hands.

it was my last MBA class today. we break for a week, then i have my exams. and then, i'm done!!! (apart from the thesis..hehe)

the presentation went surprisingly well, despite us thinking that we had done a shit job. i guess we did get something right then...we all smiled when the professor said, "OK, this is another group that I think made really good suggestions, and have analyzed the case very well."

watching her cry

i watch her cry,
sympathizing for her newfound challenge.
and he kept on smiling,
but i know the fear he feels inside,
as the certain future becomes uncertain.

then she cries again,
and she told me that it has been like a dream.
i held her hand and told her to "be strong",
whatever that means to each of us.

i fought hard for her not to see my tears,
but as i walked away, the tears fall anyway.

Teka teki:
Kancil dengan Banana berselisih, what happens?

Banana gets dents in her body.


Hospital update - The one about the Hotshot doc

Man...new doctor for me today. The doc had a nasal voice, and spoke english in a funny way. I didn't like the way the doc told me, "well...your other counts are ok, but I don't like your white cell count. I donch wants to scare you or anything, but it could be a relapse you know. Now, you have two choices.you could do a bone marrow test, or you could come backs in a month and do another blood count. If I were you, i'd go for the bone marrow."

Suffice to say, that doc instantly made me uncomfortable. It must be the air of arrogance that was so strong inside the room that repelled me. Naturally, I asked where my doctors were; and the answer was, "Well, you better get used to it, because not all your previous doctors will be here forever you know. Plus we all here work as a team. Which is why I have to flips through your notebook here to see what has happened. So, tell me, why did the Doctors decide to inject you with your brother's lymphocytes last time?" haha...iyolah tu teamwork..

Wtf? Rasa nak terajang. Doctors have delivered me many bad news before...but never before they are certain. Never before they have numbers and lab reports before their eyes. And when they do, it never makes me feel angry. Sad, yes. But never angry. But this particular hot shot, yah, made me angry. Uncomfortable.

Well, I hope the low white cell count is only caused by my not feeling well yesterday, not due to a relapse. Hope the bone marrow biopsy will be OK..as the doc said, "Well, I donch want to waits too long..in case it somethings." yup..sempat lagi nak mengutuk. Hahaha..

WBC 2.3 - Lymphocytes 1.3
HB 12.2
Platelets 153,000

Anyway, I guess this is another reminder that we humans won't live forever, much as we want to. We hide our feelings, we suppress our emotions, we procrastinate, we forget to pray, we take things for granted. I say, from now on, everybody should seize their days, because you'll never know when you won't be around anymore. Tell the people who you care about that you love them, tell that crush how you feel, thank God for the blessings you have around you. And then, if you have the money, go out and buy that luxe item that you've been wanting all this while..be it an expensive designer handbag or a pro lens.

ala...like the Ronan Keating song tu...it goes like this"
if tomorrow never comes...
did i say how much i love you...
did i buy the lens i want..
that i thought of everyday
and dreamed of every night....
if tomorrow never comes...

Gotta get some vitamins now. Tata.

spot on

Sze punya, originally uploaded by nadi0.

i had my last monday class today. no more having to rush after work to school. and no more having to listen to lectures about how malaysians are so negative that we'll never amount to anything in life.

it took me more hours last night looking through my bird park photos than reading my journal articles. i ended up skimming through 5, and only properly reading one. it must be my lucky day today, because when he opened up my CD and randomly picked an article, he picked the one I actually read!! woohoo...! It was worthwhile spending the time editing the bird photos instead. hahaha..

the topic i chose was the power of blogs, and its possible usage within corporations. maybe i should write an entry about how the module didn't teach me much at all. muhaha..but i'll be kind lah since i'm so happy.

here's a picture of my friend's lens, taken from my home studio experiment...it has got nothing to do with this posting.

shooting birds

Peacock, originally uploaded by nadi0.

tired from doing my website assignment all day, i decided to go to the Lake Gardens. My drive by shooting attempts didn't produce satisfactory results, so i went to the bird park to shoot some birds instead. No worries, no blood was spilled.

hehe. more pictures on my flickr page.

yah. it's now 11.45pm, and i still have my journal articles to be read. I'm a master procrastinator..!! argh...!

talk to the hand...

talk to the hand..., originally uploaded by nadi0.

coz the head ain't in focus!!!

still have journal articles to read, group project to finish, a discussion at 11am tomorrow, ...and i'm still up doing nonsense. come to think of it, i was up the whole day doing nonsense, when there are still more immediate matters to be attended to.

i'm really not sure how buying two clamp spotlights from IKEA to build my home studio would help me answer my exam questions, but it sure is better than staying home, reading my textbooks!

just 3 more weeks, i need to focus!! i wish my head could focus like my camera does when it is set to a wide aperture; subject in sharp focus, and all distractions get blurred into the background. (paham ke korang analogy ni? hahaha)

...is when someone, or something, occupies your mind day and night, and it makes you feel good thinking about it.

or some might call it obsessive-compulsive. i call it love...passion...when you're deeply interested in something, or someone.

and by my definition, i think i'm in love. with something...or could it be a someone? he he he...

what's your definition of love?

diversion tactics

dang...i always find reasons to procrastinate whenever there's something important due, for example my individual project that's due this monday night that i haven't started. things that have been diverting my attention:

1. sudden addiction to surfing flickr
2. sudden need to reorganize the music on both my hard drives
3. sudden interest in editing and reorganizing all the photos on my hard drives

can spend all night editing photos, cannot spend even 5 minutes to read the journal articles...

1) that brilliant sunset today (did anybody see it?)

2) the ipaq I used to capture the sunset, since I didn't have a proper camera


ps: the sunset was so nice, that it took me 1.5 hours to reach
cyberjaya today, when it usually only takes me about 40 minutes. :-)
note to self: carry the little camera everywhere so you don't miss
stunning views like that!!

nadio machiavelli

here's an email i received a while ago..it was in regards to an MBA assignment that my group had to submit.
NB: Would anybody pls inform me, Is Nadia a prime Minister of any country where we live as illiterate people or she is the CEO of any organization where we are serving as 3rd / 4th graded employer? She should realize that, If we are not so, then she failed to show minimum courtesy in her last mail.
what i wrote in my last email was that if he didn't submit his portion, in all fairness, we would take his name off the group list. wasn't that courtesy enough, considering he hadn't done a single thing? he submitted his work 2 days later, 1 weeks after it was due, and he wrote about BMW. He obviously didn't read the case study, since it was actually about Mercedes!! When the assignment was over, he wrote an email to us, saying that he'd like to pull out of the team. Nobody bothered to reply his email.

Lesson learned: act like an illiterate, you get treated like an illiterate.

I know what i did sounded cruel, but here's something i read in Machiavelli's The Prince:
''A Prince should therefore disregard the reproach of being thought cruel where it enables him to keep his subjects united and loyal. For he who quells disorder by a very few signal examples will in the end be more merciful than he who from too great leniency permits things to take their course and so result in chaos and bloodshed, for these hurt the whole state, whereas the severity of the Prince injure individuals only.''
sometimes you need to be cruel to be kind. :-)

weekend random thoughts

...i want to go take pictures in melaka, a famosa, the zoo, etc etc.

...u can spend lots of money to make the exterior look good, but it doesn't matter if it's still not properly working on the inside. i'm talking about my banana boat...hehe. well i guess it applies to other things in life as well, eh?

...4 more weeks to freedom from my MBA classes. but it still won't be over yet until my long-overdue thesis is finished. but at least i won't have to endure the weekly 3.5 hour "malaysians are a bunch of negative thinkers who have no hope to become successful" lectures.

...i want to go take pictures of the KL Eye again...from a different point of view.

...what's up with people who spell "buffday" instead of birthday? cute kah?

...Zinio is awesome.

...the moon, it's so round and beautiful tonight.

...time flies. i miss the last couple of weeks of my life. it was uncertain, nevertheless, it was beautiful.

...i want to go to Melaka...eh, did i already say that? oh ya i did.

...Radzlan's Work on Sundays is an excellent, catchy song. (lan, u better pay me for promoting your songs)

...i need to drink more water.

...need to hit Padini tomorrow to get more of those 50% khaki pants.

...bloody hell, it's 3.30 AM. this staying up habit of mine can't be good for my skin or my health..crap.
