Learning method

January 31, 2008

People who just get to know me will always think that i am a business student. They will not associate me with engineering. But it is a cold hard fact that i am a freaking engineering student. Haiz. That is the sad truth. Of course, i need to thank those people who imparted their knowledge to me. For my marketing side, they will be Delvin and Natalie because from working with them i have learnt a lot on marketing. I just need people to give me the foundation and from there i can build my own way up. This is also the reason why i am not talented in arts because i will have to start from scratch all the time. I am a people person that is why my learning method will be from working and talking to people instead of books. Which maybe why i cannot be compared to those genius because they can just learnt from those boring books.

Oh and yesterday i let SY paid for our cab fare home. Haha. I am absolutely ok with that since we are such good friends. There is no reason why guys should pay all the time. Hehe. The best thing was that i got to keep the change. I guess i will be the one paying next time round. SY, if you read this pls pls no cab next time. Just kidding. I shall pay the next time round only if you are really tired.

My MB101 groupmates are really ‘zai’. I need not do a thing for the presentation and they have already settled it. Fast and nice. Just the way i like. All of them are from China which may mean that i will not be able to communicate well with them. But it is fine with me. As long as they are good, not like those from ___, only know how to freeride.

Can i just let myself live normally with questions that i cannot find answers to in my heart?

Close Shave

January 29, 2008

What a close one that was yesterday. I almost missed my MB102 tutorial presentation for yesterday because i skipped last week so i did not know it was my group turn this week. It was a good thing i came prepared. I presumed there will be no more presentation after that anymore. Guess what… I am the only guy in my group of 5. Haha. It was not hard to see that i am also the one who has the most knowledge on 102 but i cannot say the same for MB101. After yesterday, i think i may have a nice time for my 102. It is a good thing that i did not joined the other group because it consists of __ and __. If that is the case, my 102 will be living hell. Oh and this week i met quite a lot of old friends like JingHui (my econs mate), Youqing and Kah Wee. Nice to know that they are doing well.

Heading off to meet my 101 group. Oh man. This¬†week is full of presentation…¬†

Never Ever

January 25, 2008

I made a mistake sometime back by trusting someone, only to be hurt by that person for what he has done in secret. I should have trust myself from what i have seen in his eyes. To me, the eyes of a person always tells the nature of that person. Whether will he does anything evil, it maybe an unfair way to judge a person. But it has always proved itself to it that i was right in the end. So i shall never ever trust any person when i see evil in that person’s eyes. Or else, i will be the one getting hurt in the end.

Going down and down and down

January 24, 2008

Oh man, the economy is going down again. Bad news for those who are finding a job this year. What result in a recession? Bad debts? The root to it is still human selfish nature. Why news of things are not doing well. People started to get panic and try to take precautions. Results in panic selling, with that things will only get worse instead of better. As the theory of money velocity goes, it will result in a great loss. So what to do?

Casting Crowns – Stained Glass Masquerade

January 23, 2008

Is there anyone that fails
Is there anyone that falls
Am I the only one in church today feelin’ so small
Cause when I take a look around
Everybody seems so strong
I know they’ll soon discover
That I don’t belong

So I tuck it all away,
like everything’s okay
If I make them all believe it,
maybe I’ll believe it too
So with a painted grin,
I play the part again
So everyone will see me the way that I see them

Are we happy plastic people
Under shiny plastic steeples
With walls around our weakness
And smiles to hide our pain
But if the invitation’s open
To every heart that has been broken
Maybe then we close the curtain
On our stained glass masquerade

Is there anyone who’s been there
Are there any hands to raise
Am I the only one who’s traded
In the altar for a stage
The performance is convincing
And we know every line by heart
Only when no one is watching
Can we really fall apart

But would it set me free
If I dared to let you see
The truth behind the person
That you imagine me to be
Would your arms be open
Or would you walk away
Would the love of Jesus
Be enough to make you stay

Hard

January 19, 2008

The next two weeks will be quite tired because working on sunday and monday morning have early lessons at 8.30am. Sian sian sian. What to do when you have no money but to work. Number is so hard to get. Maybe have to wait a few more weeks before seeing any progress is done. Haha. To be or not to be? I just like my loner self now. Feeding on knowlegde and being emotionless. I cannot find a balance between stuffs. It is always the extreme. A ruthless businessman. Haha.

Me?

What others see from your style

You wear whatever you please, you are probably confident, stubborn, strong-minded and independent. Deep down, however, you think that you are being excluded from society. You wish you belonged, but as you don’t, you’re going to follow your own rules.What your nightclothes reveal

You’re a romantic person at heart. You are imaginative but your temper can sometimes get in the way of your happiness.What others see from your ties

You are kind and friendly. You are an uncomplicated person and enjoy exciting activities.What others see from your belts

You are a lonely and demanding person. You are hardworking as well as intelligent, and can be passionate when in love.What others see from your shoes

You are a person who loves simplicity and is sincere and open. You are pleasant to be with, easygoing and always in a good mood. You neither want to control nor be under someone else’s control. You don’t care much about how you look, and know that it’s what’s inside someone’s heart that’s important.What others see from your earrings

You are probably an independent and strong-willed person. Fairness is important to you, and you always stand up for what you believe in. You are friendly and get along well with people.The last analysis

You are probably a romantic and passionate person. You are sensitive and lonely when you aren’t in love. You can be somewhat self-centered, but you are honest and sincere to others. You like to make a good impression of yourself and worry about what others think of you.

Our Voices were heard

January 17, 2008

At least, the upstage has been a hit. Our voices have been heard. Finally they are reviewing our EN104 grades. It is not fair for me to get a C+ because those who got A were far less capable than my team. It is by pure luck they lead the game. No real skills needed. It is like so unfair to the rest of us who have the ability to do some much more. I managed to gather alot of people to send in appeal letters to NTC to ask them to review the grades. In a business world, you will not need to maintain contacts with so many people. Just get to know the core personal and everything will be fine. Just like this time, you want a mass appeal just sms those core personals and the rest will be passed down. Save efforts and time plus a bonus of efficient.

Expectation

January 16, 2008

Expectations. Just what are these? Everybody has an expectation on all sorts of people and things that are related to their lives. It is a kind of hope or opinion form after getting to know someone or something better. Yet how often is our expectation fair to the other person for instant? Is our expectation based on accurate data of that person or is it just some ‘false’ information that we preceived it to be true? After so many storms, i have sort of given up of forming an expectation on others. Because this will often fail as the ‘data’ given to me by others are not 100% true. People in this world are just living with a mask on each day. How often are we true to our own feelings? Trying to be a person which is not your true self is the most tiring job one can ever have.

Emo eMo

January 16, 2008

Just came back from cell and late night supper. It seems people are getting emo over some issues in their lives. The thing about being EMO is a mind set problem after my so many years of ’emo-ing’. If it is about the work environment, there is a lack of purpose and passion in it and no like-minded friends to look forward to at work. Maybe one can think of how to pray for and get those people in your workplace to know Christ. By changing to another mindset, then things will be different. Of course, it will be easier said than done. Somehow a first step must be taken if not one will be suffering in depression.

It seems SY has a BGR problem after so long. It is always the second guessing issue. Not knowing what the other party is thinking about. Too shy to make the first move for fear of rejection. At the end of the day, things can also be changed with a new mindset. Do not focus the problem between just you and that person. Instead bring God into the picture and ask what is Thy will. Shift your attention away from the outcome and focus on the process itself. Doors will be opened and answers shall be given.

It is always good to have goals, aims and desires in life. But always learn to balance them. Do not be consumed by them. Oh well, due to the supper, i missed my chat time with Lorna. It’s ok cos learning is my main focus now. In a stage of learning to take things not too lightly yet not too much.
