I was about to do my teaching planning for the day about fractions, then I came across yahoo.com Hot Topic that there goes this one professor (DeTurck) from the Pennsylvania University saying that fractions are all obsolete and doesn't help much in learning mathematics.
Quoted from the news
"DeTurck is stirring the pot again, this time in a book scheduled to be published this year. Not only does he favor the teaching of decimals over fractions to elementary school students, he's also taking on long division, the calculation of square roots and by-hand multiplication of long numbers."
Whew...if this is agreed upon more mathematicians then I don't have to be teaching fractions today..Haha..lagi sikit kerja. Can blog more then..ehehe
How To Hide An Unwanted Erection
this site is even better than youtube.com...click videojug.com
I love EVA! well, she is my idol anyway. But the hairstyle made she looked like that she is still living the Marilyn Monroe era. The colour of the dress is also very subtle and it really matches her skin tone. Kudos eva!
Owh and this! The wrong world of wearing Blue. It left the whole world feeling blue as ever. Yet, Amanda Bynes (left) still know how to show off her slender body but NO NO NO to this star of Hairspray. If you have big upper body especially the shoulders, DON'T wear a off-shoulder dress again la.See now, you look like a "nangka bungkus"
The Greek inspired dress or other culture inspired dress seems to be such a hit on the red carper these days. Just look at Angelina Jolie and Sandra Oh. Some fashion critics said Sandra's dress is just a NO NO. But for me it is a very creative one trying to incorporate the hanbok into an evening dress. There is room for improvment definitely but the idea if infusing culture and couture is just SO fabulous! I am just hoping one day I can see a KadazanDusun inspired dress to be walking down the red carpets in Tinseltown. SOMEDAY~maybe...
Found the calculator from Dazeree's blog. But, the value! It really bothers me a lot..murah juga. But not to worry la I guess. No one wanna kidnap me la like dat. Ransom money can't even pay for one car, let alone a mansion.ahahaha

I called it the land of political absurdity
Full of ludicrousness amid stupidity
First in the pipeline is Mr. Badawi
The country's fifth Perdana Menteri
Hailed from notable ulama's family
In that spirit he created a new Islam Hadhari
The so-called modern Islam resembling
When the original Islam turned awry.
He loves to travel in style like big celebrity
Making grand entrance in any opportunity
So he insisted a private jet paid by Treasury
He got it despite hullabaloo by bloggers community
He said the government didn't purchase it out rightly
The government is leasing it from SPM, a GLC
For him, this is a good strategy
By doing that he thinks he can save money
Oh yeah, he thinks people believe his story.
seems to be his favourite city
Last December he opened Nasi Kandar Puteri
And then went on sailing trip with Todt of
Back home worst flood hit Johor Kota Tinggi
17 died and 90,000 evacuated in that tragedy
But yet, the jet setting PM was outside the country
He might use key.
Badawi has son-in-law by the name of Khairy
He married Badawi's daughter Nori
Recently both blessed with the baby
That has longest name in the country
I can only remember the last name, Khairy
This young chap is Pemuda Umno deputy
Claimed to have "protection" from Mr. Badawi
So he is gathering support from Putera and Puteri
At the same time accumulated wealth aggressively
Through ECM Libra and some crony
Media was at his helm through NST
Now he has potent tools – money, media and machinery
And his father-in-law alias Perdana Menteri
Meanwhile Hisham is putting up a new strategy
His keris wielding attracts flak of Malay supremacy
It backfires especially to Chinese community
His reasoning draws conclusion that he is puny
Najib is not convince Hisham to be his deputy
Najib may consider a big mouth Nazri
Provided that Rosmah is okay to work with Nazri
You know why lah, Najib takut bini.
We don't have to elaborate the story
You have to come here to enjoy the absurdity
We have quite a few funny ministers and MP
Such as hilarious Work Minister Mr. Samy
Before Hindraf he represents Indian community
The longest serving minister that heads MIC
In press conference he got agitated quite easily
When Umno conference was held on
He said no "open house" as sign of hostility
He twisted the decision maybe after talking to Indrani
This MIC leaders share similar trait and personality
The latest one was Cameron Highland MP Mr. Devamani
He has broken ranks with fellow BN MP
When he accused government not doing enough for Indian community
After meeting with BN Whip, he regretted and say sorry.
Let me continue my story
Well, you probably have heard it already
About the biggest anti-government rally
Not exactly same scale as 98 Reformasi
more than 40,000 flooded the city
To protest unfair election practice against EC
Dirty ruling party tactics are legendary
Short-notice on Election Day is customary
Just a day before Pak Lah was basking in glory
In annual affair of UMNO general assembly
Full of hypocrisy and puji-memuji
Pak Lah shouted it loud "don't challenge me"
Despite threats and warning from Pak Lah and Khairy
People are defiant and take no heed from Badawi
They chanted God is Great, Daulat Tuanku and Reformasi
November is a month of illegal assembly
School holidays thus parents are quite free.
The rally was given wide publicity
The rally was headlined in and BBC
Foreign media questioned our brand of democracy
Water cannon and tear gas were fired indiscriminately
Umno leaders are in denial state naturally
Such as Zam who head the Info Ministry
Zam was trembling uncharacteristically
In an interview that becoming laughing stock in the country
Scrambling for words and chew out frantically
He can't censor it as we are in digital technology
You can just or easily.
Well that is one example of political absurdity
What do you expect from half past six menteri
Some are in complete ignorance and dreary
Some will resort to unthinkable publicity
Giving broom as reward never in history
Some will slaughter cows in parliament for kenduri
To celebrate the matrimony of our own
Another stupid joke by backbencher MPs.
You can't find this in your country
A journalist like Michael Backman will agree
So many things to write for your Daily
No wonder he keeps coming here for juicy story
Malay tabloids prefer to write about ghost and celebrity
That's saleable among ordinary
Maybe they got sick of constant spat by political party
They prefer to idolise people like Siti or Mawi
ooo..i work for the government as well okay..posted this just to share and let others judge for it. Those eligible to vote, take time to ponder..tidak lama lagi pilihanraya tu...ahaha. With the promise of development coming to Sabah under the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC). Everything is put to stake now, each side is trying to put their best foot forward to win the hearts of the people especially in Sabah.
GOOD or BAD, you decide :P
But today, STAR.com.my reported this pula...
SUNGAI PETANI: A Year Four pupil died of head injuries after a basketball pole fell on him while he was playing in his school.
Abdul Azim Abdul Haris, 10, from SK Sri Wang near here, died at about 7.20pm at the Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital, about seven hours after the incident on Tuesday.
Housewife Suriah Zainol, 38, said her son was playing basketball with his friends after school when the incident happened.
She said she received a telephone call at about 1.30pm from the school informing her that her son was injured after a basketball pole had fallen on him.
She and her husband, Abdul Haris Ahmad, 42, then went to the school and rushed their son, with the help of teachers, to a private hospital here.
Her son, who was unconscious, was later transferred to the Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital at about 4pm.
He died without regaining consciousness.
So, mana yang betul ni?

Been practicing for a good two weeks, the team (me, my cuzzies and my friends). The concert was divided into 4 main parts. First, introduction *with warming up songs*,then praises, adoration and closing..
But the most interesting part was the adoration. Damn, for me, it was a bit creepy. First time when I was singing, some people started crying. Then other songs proceed, things getting more and more intense till a few fainted. Second time I sang, towards the end of the song, someone went into a hysteria, shouts so sharp and piercing. The hysterical shouting went on until the next song...whew. *meremang bulu roma o*. And unexplained, I cried after singing my song that time. Touched by the holy spirit...*maybe*
not bad for someone who almost wanted to be an atheist before huh? God has His own plans maybe

But, now it is my portable hard disk, 3 of my picture folders are all gone *the pictures inside, the folder is still there* and 1 folder, the songs all gone inside *poof! just like that*. All the folders is still there, its just that the data inside the folder is gone. The last time I checked when I plugged it in with my laptop, it was still okay and intact. NOW, no more...wawawawawa..Could it also be I have plugged in the portable hard disk to an infected pc or laptop?
Anyone, help me..please!!!
Renaldo Lapuz...I mean WOW..haha..funny in a way but he is truly my hero..*grin*
if you watch his audition from the start till the end, you will know what I mean. I never seen such innocence in my life. the judges laughed at him at first, but he just smiled and control his composure..
the singing started...and man, those TV people was laughing at him, but he kept on singing. *Yes, I know his singing sucks but still who have the courage and strength to face the 3 tough judges of American Idol especially SIMON*
...and he really do love Simon.. Simon on his hat, Simon on his head, Simon all over..he adores Simon..hehehe. *I thought everybody don't like Simon, but some people do love him also.hehe*
Renaldo Lapuz..my hero of self esteem..*I heard that he is Asian too, Filipino to be exact..is that true?*

this song is so powerful, it really gives me goosebumps everytime we sing it.
been practicing almost every night for our own upcoming Tuaran Youth Day; a journey to the Sabah Youth Day. which is also to coincide with the happening of World Youth Day in australia in July. The practice is for the concert on the evening of 26th January. So anyone who can drop by and give support are most welcomed!
I really salute the composer of this song because it really do have such power to move people( well, at least for me).
Try paying attention to the chorus part
Receive the power, from the HOly SpiRit
Receive the power, to be a light unto the world.."

|You're a Romantic Kisser|
For you, kissing is all about feeling the romance
You love to kiss under the stars or by the sea
The perfect kiss involves the perfect mood
It's pretty common for kisses to sweep you off your feet
it fell down from the ceiling to the cold-hard-cement floor. poor thing! it was a baby, baby kitten. After that, I can hear the mother cat mewing from the hole of the ceiling.
The baby kitten was still alive when my friend lift it from the floor and put it on a box, so that the dogs wont go and eat it. The kitten's breath is shallow and it didn't make any sound.
Anyone who studied maths can count the amount of impact that the kitten had gone through. The height for man alone can kill sometimes and most cases can result in severe injuries...and now this, the impact can shatter every bone in its body and smash the organs inside as well.
We can't do anything with the kitty as well, and the mother cat didn't bother to go down and check out its baby. So, before we left the place to proceed with our scheduled program, I took a look at the kitty.
It was so heart-wrenching for me, I guess the kitty was in severe pain. But it can't mew, just shallow breath...and the pain was so intense that the kitty "terberak" to tahan the pain. saliva was coming out from the mouth. maybe the kitty is only a few days old also because the umbilical cord of the kitty is still attached to it.
I said a silent prayer so that the kitty wouldnt be in so much pain. I am not sure wether the kitty died or not but I just hope it didn't suffer so much.

been getting comfy with the new daily routine that am doin now. life as a school teacher. not that, i am not proud for being one of the many educator in this nation, but i just hate politics at work place. and it is something that i can't run away from.
first, i was given to teach Maths and after agonizing about it for about a week, my prayers had been answered. i could teach science and biology for the upper secondary. more work to do, but it is my forte, so there is not so much of a problem doing things that you love.
then come the change, an order from your superior to teach another subject which I dreaded the most. Maths. again. aduh..still in planning tapi this breaking news really bothers me a lot. and just because I don't have the seniority in my post I would be on the top of the list to be kicked around like a ball. *Damn
whatever the reason is, I just can't get it. Why there is no chance for me to prove that I am worthy for my job?
Tuesday, January 15, 2008
but i just cant help not to be complaining about this, because I just don't like my legs. My friends describe it as a "footballers legs" and yes I do have a very noticeable and significant calf muscle especially when am wearing heels...ugh so ugly!
*do u notice that these stars also not-so-very-the-tall..hihihi*

This is your captain Hiten Raja speaking.
Welcoming both seated and standing passengers on board of Air India.
We apologize for the four-day delay in taking off, it was due to bad weather and some overtime I had to put in at the bakery.
This is flight 717 to . Landing there is not guaranteed, but we will end up somewhere in India. And, if luck is in our favour, we may even be landing on your village.

To make your free fall to earth pleasant and memorable, we serve complimentary DARU and Wada pau.
For our not-so-religious passengers, we are the only airline who can help you find out if there really is a God.
We regret to inform you, that today's in-flight movie ( Ghar Ghar Ki Khani and Kyuki Saas bhi ) will not be shown as we forgot to record it from the television.
However, for our movie buffs, we will be flying right next to , where their movie will be visible from the right side of the cabin window.
There is no smoking allowed in this airplane. Any smoke you see in the cabin is only the early warning system on the engines telling us to slow down.
In order to catch important landmarks, we try to fly as close as possible for the best view. If however, we go a little too close, do let us know.
Our enthusiastic co-pilot sometimes flies right through the landmark.

|You Are an Ice Cream Cake|
Surprising, unique, and high maintenance. *note the high maintenance ppl! am I?
You're one of a kind, and you don't want anyone to forget it. *this is SO VERY TRUE..ahaks
You're fun in small doses, but it's easy for people to overdose on you! *muahaha
I was given to teach Science Form 4 and Biology for both upper and lower Six. But I was told they MIGHT be some changes in the very near time soon.
then when I did the handover of the class with the last teacher in charge of the subject. I was told that I still look like a "budak"aka student.
During the last "merentas desa" activity at school, I was in plain clothes, so being a new teacher, not all the students know you. So I heard the kids were saying that I am a Form Six student.
I am a teacher now but I am not seen as one...
|You Act Like You Are 21 Years Old|
You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.
You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.
and since yesterday, my right eye keep on twitching. Anyone can explain about this? It is on and off, but what could be causing it? Not enough sleep? My mom said it may be caused by this situation; that I still got things that should be bought. Means there are more shopping to be done..
what the heck? and she said the solution is to put anything red over my eyelid...hmmm..what la? red eyeshadow...?

makan makan at anjung-dunno-wat-the name dat..sana tanjung lipat ba..apa tu nama dia?
and here we were being silly at the AIC..what a way to spend my last day of working there
the day I received the letter to change my career and be a teacher, really made everything different..
for I have been waiting for quite some time for that notification and at the same time took the time off to withdraw from the academic world. then i took a plunge to try my hands on hospitality and tourism industry
it wasn't that bad and I was at the verge of making a decision that I would leave the prospect of being an educator forever.
(picture blogging in action!)
and on christmas day...all were looking SOO fine! (manage to go for christmas day mass that day though had to rush for work after that...no public holiday for me on that day!)
it was a blast! a JOYOUS christmas and AMAZING new year
