Homemade

Let us learn the word 'homemade' today. English class abit ar.

home⋅made

[hohm-meyd] Show IPA
–adjective
1. made or prepared at home, locally, or by the maker's own efforts: The restaurant's pastry is homemade. Breakfast at the farmhouse always meant homemade preserves.
2. made in one's own country; domestic: I prefer a homemade car to one of those foreign models.
3. made, contrived, or assembled by oneself; not professionally made or done; amateurish: the plain look of homemade furniture.

Origin:
1650–60; home + made


Well, this is not purely random. I was having my family dinner cum younger sister's birthday celebration. Then this manager of the cafeteria was explaining the dishes to a foreign customer while me and my siblings was taking our food. When comes to the dishes of 'kampung style fried rice', this manager translated it as 'homemade fried rice'. That was embarrass enough, but he further explains what does 'homemade' means. This is a rough line what he said.

"This is homemade fried rice"

"Homemade means ladies get married and stay at home to cook"

*pointing at a waitress* "This lady is not married, so she cannot cook homemade fried rice"

Then i can sense the coldness and a few chirps of the crows. As a Malaysian, how embarrassing was that, especially working in a hotel, fulamak.

Tho it's quite malu, but my family had a real laugh at this throughout the whole dinner.

The kits.

I feel like doin this after shopping in Al-Ikhsan. Top 10 fav national kit for 2010.

«2» USA home


«1» Russia home

Auf Wiedersehen

I have been late for 15 days. But i think tributes are not necessary have to be done when something happen, things can be done when u want to, anytime.

As those who follow sports, you might know that a tragic just happened 2 weeks back. German national goalkeeper, Robert Enke lost his life by committing suicide. It's really sad to hear that news, even worst after knew his story.

Enke was one of the late boomer that only establish himself in the national team at the age of 29. FYI, he left at the age of 32. Having different stint at various clubs such as Carl Zeiss Jena, Moenchengladbach, Barcelona, Fenerbahce and Tenerife before he settled down in Hannover96 in 2004. Earning his captain armband and impressed German National Coach, Joachim Leow. He was then about to guarantee himself as the first choice man-between-the post and definitely will be called up for next year's World Cup.

Just when the highlight of his career was about to begin, a huge burden hit on his shoulder. He and his wife, Teresa lost their daughter in 2007 who suffer from heart birth defect. Since then, he suffered from serious depression. Eventhough, Enke, being a pet lover, who has 8 dogs, 2 cats and a horse, as well involved in animal right campaign, the lost of his daughther kept haunting him. Due to that, he drove his car to a train crossing station and waited for the train before he was run over by the train.

Sometimes, even being a psych student, i still don't really understand why do ppl give up their live so easily, especially this case. All these while i do have some issue with the Germans, due to the fact that a couple of them are sheer arrogant, namely Oliver Kahn. Since he was retired, i do put hope for Enke or Hildebrand who is MIA. Being at that stage of achievement, Enke probably still can't reach his security needs through the Maslow Hierachy of need. Or probably, his security needs just taken away in sudden, that probably lead his to lost his mind. But it's seriously a waste, such a talent, such a dad, such a human but is resting in peace up there right now.

May you R.I.P, Auf Wiedersehen, Enke.



"This can and must not be true. Robert was such a great bloke. I don't know how I will tell my wife. She is very good friend's with Robert's wife. I feel for his family." - Kevin Kuranyi -

“Robert Enke will never come back to this stadium where he conquered our hearts, you were a number one in the real sense of the word. This is why our hearts are so heavy.” - Martin Kind -

“For him fairness was always an important part of life. His death is an immense loss. We will miss him, as a first class sportsman and an extraordinary man." - Joachim Leow -

Do you smell what I'm cooking?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

This 'ah' is totally different from yesterday night's 'ah'

It's a sign of relieved. LOL

Yes, u're right! A whole huge burden was totally rubbed off my shoulder. Thesis is done! Next up, thesis defense, but who cares anymore? some talk cock skills could just easily get it over.

But let's talk bout thesis! Well, the process was awesomely awful! But it's sure relieved when it was done. Especially printing out the whole stack of words, u just can't seems to get it over. And while having 8am class earlier, you just can't wait to throw the 2 documents into the submission box.

But NOW, it's all over. RAWR

Nevertheless, just gotta thank God that it's over.

Thank you all my friends who gave moral support throughout both thesis 1 and 2.

Thank you my parents who keep telling me 'keep it up' and 'how many words left?'

Thank you my younger sister who borrowed me her laptop to do my thesis in my room.

Thank you those who helped me with my data collection.

Thank you coffee who keep me awake to work on my thesis. Now i only start to appreciate coffee.

Thank you those cold nights that i went through. *sarcastic

Thank you Dr. Rotter and Dr. Eleanor help allowing me to use the scale and also being so generous by posting me the article.

Thank you my co-marker who gave a tip or two.

Thank you my supervisor, Ms. Siew Ju Li for being so helpful throughout both theses. Without her, i can't get my scale. Without her, i might got convinced to change my topic which could cause a huge havoc. And of course, without her, i don't even have a supervisor. Ha.

But the person that i have to specially thank her and i want to specifically name it out is my dear friend Mandy Kok. Seriously appreciate what she had done for me or perhaps not only me, and i'm one of THEM. Don't think i will even get through this without all her helps. SPSS la, proofreading la, design la, APA la, citations la, data analysis la and etc etc. She sacrificed all her time just to help me or us throughout these while. Not like she got nothing to do, but she just did it. Hence, u deserve a special shout out here, Mandy Kok. I just couldn't think of how to repay ur kindness.

Oh, last but not least! thank you facebook, youtube, skysports, footytube, blogger, msn, gmail chat, and liverpoolfc.tv, without you all, my biological clock won't get screwed!

But anyway, arrivederci thesis!

The last till it's Monday

Geez, time is going tick tock without even asking your permission. I'm getting abit paranoid because my motivation definitely hasn't arrived yet.

Even though every single minute could/might inspire me to write a few words for my thesis, but i do still spend some time to check my blog here and then. But everytime i see the latest post, or rather previous post from now on, it ain't help me to push myself till next monday. Not at all.

Hence, the lyric that i always found strength came into my mind. Again, not to be surprise, it's from the song 'You'll Never Walk Alone', Ha.

"Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart"

To all who are fighting with time for thesis, all the best, remember to walk on and may the strength be with you. cheers.

Soul or a Soldier?

I GOT SOUL, BUT I'M NOT A SOLDIER.

I COME IN PEACE.

Thursday, November 5, 2009

The result:



We won but not good enough to qualify. But definitely effort was there. By far, today's game was probably one the best game throughout the league. Well done lads.

As for now, it's time for a lengthy rest for me and my injuries. I have been reflecting abit on this league, and i realize it's not so healthy for me after all. 2 ankle injuries with a spine injury since the first game, nope, definitely not a good one for my future. Hence, it's time to give myself a break. No competitive football and ONLY purely for fun.

Bye from now. YNWA!
