Happy New Year 2011

Oh my, It feels as if 2010 just kicked in.

And here we are, a few hours away from 2011.

No resolutions, cos I am not one for it.

And I am heading back to IPTI tomorrow. Darn.

Not excited, not looking forward to that at all.

But, you gotta do what you gotta do right?

So, I am gonna go packing now.

I guess, all I wanna say is

Happy New Year 2011

Aquaria KLCC

During my visit to KL recently, I had the opportunity to visit Aquaria KLCC.

I may be so 2000 late but heck, I at least made my way there.

I know some of my friends had been there and I was quite thrilled and excited to witness myself the beautiful sea creatures. Just thinking about being "underwater", immersed in the water world,  it got me very excited already.

So, we bought the ticket, it was expensive but it was worth every cent paid cos I do understand the kind of maintenance needed for this large aquarium.

The truth is I am not THAT interested in seeing fishes or anything like that but being a Malaysian myself, it's kind of odd that after so long, only now did I get to be here. At least, if any foreigner or tourist ever comes up to me and asks me about it, at least I do have some ideas about what that place is about, right?

But yes, it was great to get to visit such new places especially when everything was all paid for. Thanks big sis! Hahahaha

Anyways, I don't know what to write about Aquaria KLCC but one thing for sure, it is a must-see place, I guarantee you. Having visited Aquaria KLCC makes me want to visit the Underwater World in Langkawi, which I heard wayyyyyy bigger than this one. EXCITED!!!

As I said, I have nothing interesting to share cos y'all know there are nothing but fishes, sea creatures and lots of FISHES! 

My lovely sister who paid everything during this trip to KL,from A-Z.
I forgot its name but God knows what he's doing in Aquaria.
More fishes...
and more fishes....hahaha

And oh yeah, if there was one thing that really got me jump up and down about going to Aquaria, it definitely was the walk-through tunnel tank!

I have been wanting to go down "under the water" and yes, it was so COOL!

I also heard the one in Underwater World Langkawi is bigger than this one, and yes, that's gonna be another good reason to go visit Langkawi soon. Hehehehe

Is it a shark? I don't know. Don't ask me.
My favorite, this giant stingray which is 1.8m long and can grow up to 3.3m!
This lonely turtle! hahahaha
More fishes...
I get goosebumps at times when I look at this.
Remember during World Cup where there was this huge commotion and buzz about this octopus?

Yes, I managed to see one real life octopus y'all!

Can you see it? No?

Yes, you could hardly see it because it was hiding in that pot! Shy much? :p

And you all know it's Christmas time, so they had this big Christmas tree put up there too.

One interesting part of our visit was the little demonstration of fish feeding. We were so lucky that we were there just  in time for the fish-feding session. 

They had this little auditorium, as they call it, for the visitors to sit before it and enjoy watching demonstrators/ swimmers/ divers feeding all sort of fishes and sea creatures in the tank.

Check out the stingray, he's everywhere.
Look at the massive crowd. It's school holidays, hence...
Fishes started making their way in front of the audience. It was like they were well-trained or something.
More and more of them coming in...
And more...
And more...haih
And there were the divers carrying with them buckets of food for the fishes, turtles, stingrays and others.
Do you notice that the diver on the left was dressed as a Santa? Now Santa swims y'all!

I just need to share this interesting video I took during the demonstration. Spot the Santa diver and the giant Stingray in this video. Check out what they did.

It's so cute, right? The kids were really entertained.

Ok fine. I was too! Heeeeeeee :D

And this jellyfish, I just had to take these pictures. It was amazing.

So, was it an interesting experience and trip to Aquaria?

Yes, I think it was.

She seemed to pretty much enjoy it...

So, I guess....

I did too!

I mean YES! I did enjoy seeing the fishes!


So, do check out their website here to see the other fun activities they offer at Aquaria KLCC.

Dinos Alive

Remember I wrote about my going to the Dinos Alive exhibition last week.
Maybe the pics did not do much justice to the exhibition, of how exciting it was.
So here I share with you a little amateur video I took during the visit. Enjoy!

What doesn't break you, makes you stronger

My exam result was released officially last Friday.

So, how did I fare?

The result was alright, everyone would definitely say that it was alright but I was dissapointed.


Because, the result did not help me to increase my CGPA, which also means that my chance and pursuit to graduate with a honors first class degree is over! It's over! And I felt so bad.

People asked me, why is it so important for you to get that? And some would say what's the point of getting very high GPA and CGPA if in the end, everyone will graduate and all become teachers with the same basic salary and job?


It's an accomplishment, an achievement where I can proudly tell myself that I have made it. I could make it as well as the others. It's probably hard for some to really understand this but nevermind. Everyone has their own way of looking at things.

Back to my result, I didn't blame anyone for whatever I got because I believe that "you'll get what you work for". I mean, if you really put your effort into something, you'll definitely succeed. If you work hard, you will get an excellent outcome out of it. As they say, "Hard work pays off". So, there is no way that one should blame anyone for his/her failure or whatnot, right?

I started off so badly and that had ruined my whole CGPA. My first 3 semesters were horrible and it was completely all my fault because I didn't work hard enough for it. So now, I bear the consequences myself.

This is how my every semester's GPA and CGPA look like so far,

Next semester will be the last one for me. So, even if I get like a perfect 4.0 GPA next semester, that will not be enough for me to up my CGPA to reach 3.75 which is the least CGPA one needs to get to graduate with honors first class degree in UPM. 

I must say I am really truly dissapointed with myself because I know if I really worked hard from the very beginning, it would have been different, slightly better perhaps.

But, I cannot turn back time. It is fated that way, so no point of complaining and regretting or resenting the past. The damage has been done and I've gotta accept it the way it is.In fact, I should be grateful to God for the blessing. And, I am for that matter. I truly really am.

I also did tell mom about it because I am doing all this for her as well. I felt as if I have disappointed her so much. But she said that she is more than happy for what I have achieved. It made me feel slightly relieved to hear that, though deep inside my heart, I am still disappointed and sad.

But, life must go on. This is not the end of everything. I believe there's so much more to come in life and I gotta get myself ready and prepared for something bigger in the future.

I don't have anything to prove to anyone. All I do is to prove to myself that I can push myself to the limit, that I can do as well as the others. That's all.

I guess, lesson learned and yeah, I look forward to what the future holds for me! :)

Dinosaurs come back alive! Arghhhh!

I know, I know, this may sound so absurd and surreal but I am not lying!

I saw it before my very own eyes, kid you not! It was not even a dream. I did see them in flesh.

They were so huge and they were so aggressive, wild and loud!

But the funny thing was, none of the dinosaurs were interested in chasing and hunting me down. That left me bewildered and confused.

Then only I suddenly realized something.

NO! I was not dreaming or hallucinating! How many times must I tell you that? Daaaa

It just hit me that I was at Pusat Sains Negara in Bukit Kiara Kuala Lumpur, watching 32 magnificent life-size dinosaurs, different types of them including a 16-feet Tyrannosaurus and a 23-feet tall Apatosaurus. Big huh?

Me, awed by the size of these dinosaurs! Haha
I hate how he looked! :p
Although they might just be replicas, but let me tell you, lots of kids were frightened by these dinosaurs, including my 3 year old nephew. He kept asking is father to bring him away from the dinosaurs. It was so ironic because he was the one who was so excited about seeing these creatures. ~too much of watching Ultraman of course,daaa~

The fact that they were really moving and making real sounds of dinosaurs made these kids really afraid that some of them actually cried. Huhuhu

Note the sign, DO NOT TOUCH because they bite! Hahaha
I was just thinking to myself, what would happen if these dinosaurs were still alive?

They would eat us alive definitely! Argh!!!

So, will Ultraman come and save us? hahahahahaha, so cartoonish! LOL

This exhibition is called Dinos Alive. The same exhibition took place in Bangkok in 2006 and the Philippines in 2008 and this year, they brought all these dinosaurs to our country.

Real human-mankind mother and baby with Mama and baby dinosaurs.
I would have died if they were real!
I didn't really like this one. So ugly!

I was really excited for God knows why. Hahaha. They looked kinda real though. No surprise why my nephew was so scared of them. LOL

Since it was my first time at Pusat Sains Negara, I took the chance to really explore the entire place.

Goodness me, they were so many things which I would consider too scientific, cannot go one seriously. I couldn't just figure out how certain things worked and what most of the things exhibited and showcased there were for. Obviously SCIENCE is forever not my thing. I never got A for Science subject in any of my exam.

 Nevertheless, I did enjoy myself playing with some of the things there. It was fun, they were like toys. LOL

I didn't know what she's doing at Pusat Sains Negara but she was cute because she danced and sang! Just look at the microphone. LOL
And all these cuties, they danced too! LOL they were so damn cute I just gotta take pictures with them.
Pardon my sheer shameless vanity. LOL. Just FYI, this is called cloning room.
Despite the fact that I despise Science subject in school, be it Physics, Chemistry or Biology, I actually really enjoyed myself being there at Pusat Sains Negara.

So for those who do like dinosaurs and are really interested in checking those dinosaurs out, make your way down to Pusat Sains Negara. But no worries. The exhibition will only end in May 2011, so you still have a lot of time to go there. The dinosaurs will patiently wait for y'all, I believe. LOL.

 Do check out their website here for more information about the Dinos Alive exhibition.

Now, I can tell people that I have seen Dinosaurs "alive"!

And I've been to Pusat Sains Negara!

I'm so proud to be Malaysian! ~not related at all, I know~ hahahahaha
