nerve-wracking actually..

Heay guys,

I'm writing this entry right after my STAT 200 final paper. The final was in Pollock Testing Center and now, I'm just up stair in the computer lab..

So, how did it go? Hurm..
Surprisingly, I noticed that the final was cumulative when I had my breakfast at DD this morning. I was in a total shock! I took a deep breath, avoiding myself from a panic attack! haha..

So, dengan tenangnya, I went through all of the lecture materials and thank God, sempat 'flip through' sume. And there was one Arab guy, sitting beside me..tanye course ape..and i told him that I'm having a final in one hour time..and he said, you shouldn't be studying at this moment, just have your mind relaxed katanya..**dlm hati, tolong jgn menyebok boleh tak!!!**

but, what he said is true..there's no point for me rushing into the lecture notes at a very last moment. So, I walked out of DD and walked straight ahead to Pollock Testing Center. Arrived there like quarter past 11. Dlm hati still ade this rasa bersalah sebab x sempat nk faham betul2 all the materials. And I took out my lecture notes, and had myself reading for the very very very last moment!

Quarter to 12, I checked in and started my exam already!! I was surprisingly nervous!! Doa banyak2 and Alhamdulillah, dpt jawab sume. Am crossing finger for the result. Based on the final, I'm pretty sure I'll get an A in this course. And I hope my expection turns out to be true. Amin!

2 more finals to go:

Wish me luck guys, cause I need it!

Found this..

I found this picture after intentionally looking for it in Ustaz Azhar's blog archive. Taken during my visit to SMSM last July, with Pet, Dol, Zul and his lil sis..Sweet memory =)

Dusta Berkalang

Heay guys,
It is always raining lately here in State College. I hate it tho it reminds me of Seattle thus reminds me of Twilight..*woot woot!!*

And everyone is busy revising for the final. My first final is going to be on this Sunday, at 12pm, Statistics. Haven't done any revision just yet. Currently concentrating on those tougher courses: Geochemistry and Hydrogeology.

I am sitting by myself in the library, trying to focus on those radioactive lectures. It is tough, really tough. So, to loosen up a lil bit, I shift my attention to a laptop next to me, and God knows what am I doing..haha.. and now after series of 'youtube'ing, I found myself updating this blog.

Confession: It's hard for me to get over of the semi final juara lagu result for balada. It sucks man! So, I go for 'etnik kreatif' now. hehe..and one of the songs that will be competing in the final would be 'DUSTA BERKALANG'. I have never heard of this song before. I suppose it is sang by the winner of Akademi Nasyid, Aiman. I searched for his performance on Youtube, and layaaan jap. And guess what? I like it! I like the melody and I like the lyrics even more. This song is composed by Hafiz Hamidun and the 'puitis lyrics' is written by non other than Ahmad Fedtri Yahya.
I personally think this song can win the category, given Aiman gives a strong performance to outshine Mawi & Heliza.

Okay, this is the wonderful lyrics..enjoy!

Aiman - Dusta Berkalang Lyrics

Semua yang nista
Semua yang dusta
Tidak kan bertahan
Tidak kan tersimpan

Jadi debu berhamburan
Mencari mangsanya
Permainan mayapada
Begitu al-kisah nya

Kanan kiri berkalang
Pantas cari lindungan
Usah rebah hati

Manis racun dunia
Ramai insan tertawan
Rawan tersiksa

Ranumnya sang bulan
Merdunya seri bayu
Hanyalah puraan
Di alam khayalan

Dalam ombak hidup
Kita yang layari
Jangan kau tenggelam

Di arus masa
Harus kau kemudi
Pulang ke hakiki


I think you guys should enjoy Aiman's performance during the semi final, and tell me what you guys think of it.

p/s: I better study ya'all!!

And he was just amazing!

Heay guys,

So finally it was John Legend concert last night! And one word: AMAYYYYYZIINGG!!!!!
I was totally blown away by his stage presence and his unique husky voice! The opening was grand - he walked through the crowd all the way to the stage. I love his slow ballad songs..the rendition was so powerful with he himself played the piano. The peak of the show was definitely when he sang Green Light, his single from Evolver. The response from the audience was so overwhelming- they sang and dance along with Legend. Some other facts:

-Raphael Saadiq sang as the opening act. He was good btw.
-The opening song was 'Used To Love You'. And I like the 'hola hola hola' thing.
-He picked one girl to 'Slow Dance' with him on the stage and he gave her a rose! Other girls in the audience were so envy!
-The backup singers were fantastic!
-All the audience sang Ordinary People with him. It was nice! But shame on me for not knowing the words =(
-He did charity too! He urged the audience to donate $5 to Show Me campaign.
-The last song was 'If You're Out There'. This song is so meaningful. During this song, the screen projected many faces of inspiration including Barack Obama.
-John Legend is from Ohio and we booed him! But he wished Penn State luck for the Bowl thingy. Again, he said he loves Buckeyes and got booed! LOL
-The concert took one a half hour.

It is definitely worth my $20!! The best concert I have ever attended to date. Sorry Carrie Underwood =)

And he is the truly Legend!

pictures!!! enjoy!
p/s: go listen to 'Ordinary People' and 'If You're Out There'. go now!
btw here's 'If You're Out There' video, performed during the Democratic National Convention 2008.

I serang Guess first, and then Calvin Klein. That were the 2 main stores where I shopped, plus Quicksilver..That was it! haha..then we sambung shopping kt downtown and I bought myself a Lacoste shoe..hehe..dah lame mengidam tuh penaaaat sgt sampai dh x boleh berjalan dah..haha..sebab we all tak tido for more than 25 hours y'alls!
