Procrascorrelation…

What is Procrastination?
Procrastination is putting off or avoiding doing something that must be done. It is natural to procrastinate occasionally.

However, excessive procrastination can result in guilt feelings about not doing a task when it should be done. It can also cause anxiety since the task still needs to be done.

We all are good super when it comes to procrastination. Things that can be done now, esok baru nak buat etc. Kira biasa tu…

My own way around it? I don’t think, I just do it…

My eureka moment was sometime ago while watching one of the Terminator flicks (tak ingat lak yang mana satu).

We all know that robot don’t have emotions and feelings. They’ll just do what is instructed to them. In a nutshell, they don’t think, they just execute it…

Huhu, that’s my eureka moment. Sounds silly maybe, but it works for me…

Double Whammy…

I have a secret…

I know absolutely nothing about those complicatedย  and alien thingy underneath the hood of a car ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Seriously it’s like rocket science for me, huhu…

Thus, it’s no surprise that when I couldn’t start my car last Tuesday morning, the first time that came to my mind – must call my car insurance asking for a tow truck ๐Ÿ™‚

I managed to crank the car a few times. The problem was it wouldn’t start. Nak kata bateri, namumkin. Lampu menyala okey je.

It turned out the culprit was the fuel pump. Rupa2nya, it’s a common problem. Terbang melayang RM700…

Oh yes, the title says ‘Double Whammy’ right?

Last Friday, on the way back to my house from INTAN, I stopped by a shop @ Seksyen 6 to get some groceries. Btw, I was driving my wifey’s car. Once I got back into the car and tried to start it, it wouldn’t. Ketegaq ni, huhu….

This time around, no cranking sound at all. Lampu tak nyala, radio tak bunyi. Rasa macam bateri sudah kong. Namumkin. Just sent the car for maintenance last week.

Turned out, confirmed it’s the battery. Melayang RM175, huhu…

What to do, expect the unexpected ๐Ÿ™‚ and get on with it. Life do has its own ups and downs…

Errr, public service announcement kejap. Gaji bulan Nov masyuk on the 10th. Nice2 ๐Ÿ˜€ …

Bye2 INTAN…

After spending 6 wonderful weeks @ INTAN Bukit Kiara, last Friday marked the last day of the course. All in all, 1 research proposal presentation, 2 exam (Statistics and SPSS) and a few group assignments.

Some of us are already planning to start their studies as early as Jan 2011, whilst the rest most likely during the second half of 2011.

As for me, like mentioned b4, tentatively for now I’m projecting October 2011. Nothing concrete yet of course.

Remember, Change Is Constant. Silap2 awal tahun gak, who knows ๐Ÿ™‚ …

Looking back at the 3 main modules, I enjoyed Research Methodology the most. Listening to the words of wisdom and advice coming from some of the most successful and well respected academicians in their field was definitely worthwhile.

555 @ History…

Over the past couple of months, my fav channel on the tube just go to be 555 @ History Channel. My must-watch programmes…

Pawn Stars 8)

Simply love the series. Informative gilak. You get to learn the history part (of the items being traded – heaps of it) and the art of communication and negotiation. My fav character definitely Chumlee…

This show taught me something valuable. Knowledge is distributed and ubiquitous. Being in their line of business, jenuh la nak amek tau pasal semua benda. When they are not sure about something, they would call their ‘penasihat’. Work smart bro…

Top Shot

Watched the 2-hour premier show last week. Layan beb. 16 participants coming from various background – ada yg x-marines, e-police officers, national shooting champions etc…
