HAPPY BIRTHDAY KHADIJAH @ KATY!!!
I'm 19 right now, can you believe it??
I always thought that when we were one year older, we're one year wiser....??
hm...I don't remember who taught me that, but I hope it's true.
I know that I'm not good in judging bad and good, but I'm learning slowly...
I think that I can't understand people the way my friends do, I just accept them as what it is...
It's hard for me to change but I believe that I will change someday, now or ever...
I would like to thank for those who did remember this date....28 March
Thanks for the wish you've given, I really appreciate it...
It's time for me to get ready, I'm going out today....and I'm also be going to treat my friends here PIZZA HUT....wait for me girls~_~

What are the potential effects of global warming in terms of climate change and how they can be arrested?
Global warming is a worldwide problem and it seems to be worsening year after year. The Earth’s temperature continues to rise making the climate becomes more erratic, forcing many species into extinction and making life harder. The ten hottest years on record have occurred in the last 14 years and the hottest of all was 2005. (Al Gore 2006). Some people do not want to admit that this problem is serious. It is true that the temperature is rising but the average temperature is quite stable over some periods of time. (Holli Riebeek 2007). However, they did not notice that these small changes in temperature will correspond to an enormous change in environment. Thus, we have to work fast to overcome the potential effects of global warming by finding a way to arrest it.
The most potential effects that we can draw out are the loss of low-lying ground corresponds to the melting of sea ice at the North Pole and South Pole. This includes mountain glaciers, ice sheets covering West Antarctica and Greenland, and Arctic sea ice. (Holli Riebeek 2007). When they melt, they will release a large amount of water to the sea causing an arising of water levels. People who live near to the sea level, such as in Florida might have the chance to lose their homes and even worse their lives. Not only that, the surface of the Earth also changes where some of the grounds are now gone, wipe out by the sea. Al Gore in a documentary entitled “An Inconvenient Truth” which was release on 2006, said that “A friend of mine said in 1978, if you see the breakup of ice shelves along the Antarctica Peninsular, watch out because that should be seen as an alarm bell for global warming”. The breakup of ice has changed the shape of the Antarctica making it smaller and smaller in size. Other places like Greenland also affected. Tony Blair’s scientific advisor has said that the cause of what’s happening in Greenland right now, the maps of the world would have to be redrawn. (Al Gore 2006). Therefore, we have to find a solution before the land is engulfing with water.
Other serious potential effects are the extinction of plants and animals. Overall, species loss is now occurring at a rate 1000 times greater than the natural background. (Al Gore 2006). The poles may become too warm for creatures that live there. This causes the plants and animals may not be able to adapt to their new surroundings. Some will ended up dead and worst extinct. Moreover, a tremendous increase in heat wave has shown a great impact where many people had died because of it. When the ocean gets warmer, it causes a stronger storm. As the water temperature increases, wind’s velocity increases and moisture content of the storm also increases. (Al Gore 2006). Hurricanes such as Katrina were formed and cause many people to suffer. If we cannot find a solution to this problem, sooner or later more deaths will resulted to extinction, not only to the animals and plants but also humans.
To overcome such problem, people’s attitudes have to change first. It is important that they be more conscious in reducing the percentage of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Use less energy for heating or cooling the house as the use of air conditioner releases greenhouse gases. Other than that, less use of cars or any type of vehicle means fewer emissions and it saves fuels. In addition, try to explore your community mass transit system, and check out any options for carpooling. If things continue as they are, we'll soon be using nearly twice of the energy and getting even more of it from fossil fuels. (Chris Woodford 2006). Forest reserve is also important where it produces more and more oxygen so that the balance of the Earth will be stored. Thus, if we manage to work out this problem, the percentage of carbon dioxide could be reduce and in contrast reduces the Earth temperature.
In a nut shell, it is very likely that rising temperatures will lead to more frequent heat waves in the future, and virtually certain that the seas will rise, which could leave low-lying country awash in seawater. Moreover, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will continue to increase and Earth will continue to heat up. In other words, global warming will become worse. Warmer temperatures will alter weather patterns that can cause more droughts, rain and even natural disasters like hurricanes. Without drastic action, global warming cannot be resolve. Therefore, it is important that we take good care of our world, the place where we live so that the next generation will not suffer from what we did before. Thus, let us work together for a better future.
Today is my friends birthday, Hafiz. I met him during the JPA interview in Kuantan. He was an MRSM student, if I not mistaken, and he took engineering course. He made it to get scolar from JPA but it was only in Malaysia, I now he works hard for it and compared to me, I think he was better. He asks and answers a lot. What I don't understand is how come he didn't get the scolar to overseas but I do. At first, I really think that I don't deserve it but maybe it is fate that brought me here. Maybe there was a reason for I'm here that me, myself can't understand. Let's put that aside as I'm going to tell you what did I talk with him this weekend, well actually we haven't talk for quite a long time!
It starts on Monday, when I planned to go out on this Sunday, that is 28 March, to celebrate my birthday with my old friend. I don't know what had came up my mind that I was thinking to invite Hafiz along. At first was because I mistakely press a button on my handset were I kept most of the imporatnat date and it shows 27 March. What I know is at that date is Earth Hour of this year. I don't remember his birthday actually and that's when I came to ask him out on Sundays. I told my friends about this on Tuesday and they seem to feel uncomfortable. I think I understand that but I really want Hafiz top join us. So I try to message him that night through the yahoo messanger and he seem to disapointed, he had invited two more of his friend. I was pity to hear that but I suggested him to come along but we will not be going in the same direction. He seems to aggree, I guessed. The next day, that was Wednesday, Sarah called me up. She said she want to change places, she doesn't want to go to Mid Valley so she suggested The Mines. So, I asked my friends in INTI how big is The Mines, but no one knows the exact picture. So, I asked Sarah, does Mines have Jusco?? Well, I was planning to buy something there as Jusco's sale was on until the 2nd of April!!
We had a long talk, me, Sarah and Syikin, and at last we come to a conclusion that we will be meeting at Midvalley. Ah! I forgot to tell you at first there were five were going, but the other two had a problem to come as their place (their study place) had no nearest public transport, in other words, it is hard for them to go out as their place is quite deep into the woods.
Okay, back to Hafiz, he demanded for Sony mp3 player for his birthday, he asked it from me for quite a long time, since with met I guess, and he never give up to ask. Guess how much is the minimum price of the mp3, it's RM200!!! I never bought a present that expensive. So I told him sorry I can't, why not I treat you for a lunch?? He says NO! I said to him that it is too expensive for me to buy such thing to him, at first I was thinking of giving him a shirt or maybe a tie, but then I feel it is good for a lunch as he once asked me for it, and it is not that expensive~_~
He says okay, fine....
I know he was dissapointed again, but when I think of it, I'm not his girlfriend or what so ever, I'm just a friend of coincidence that we met during the interview, that's all. He never asked me to be his girlfriend so why do I care much, not I like him or what, it's just because his date was near to mine and I like that (March).
What ever, I just want a happy happy birthday on this weekend. I don't want anything to spoil it, it's my first time celebrating it with my friends outside...
See all of you tomorrow and HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAFIZ!!!!!

It is not because I'm going back home eventhough I really want it too, but I have made my own plans and I hope it will go on well.
Well, I never had a celebration with my friends before, so I ask my friends to go out on this weekend but I didn't tell them the reason at first. I'm surprised that they still remember the date. ~_~
I'm glad they did, I'm not asking anything but it's enough if there are someone out there who really remember the date without I'm telling them. For some, I kept on give some hint but they seem to ignore it, maybe it is only my feelings but I still think that they don't really remember me. ~_~
I think it has been a quiet long I didn't post anything into this blog ever since my last post on the text production that ms. dil asked me to do. Here I am, during my free time, it's hard to get one this days...haha
The reason obviously because I'm quite busy right now, my final exam is just around the corner and I still have a lot to study. I know how lazy I am last semester and I was hit hard when I receive my last result. Now I know how people were so into it and I'm not. What I mean is that I never been so serious in my life, I learn because I want to and some of them because I had to. I tried to put on a target so that I will try to achieve it and I hope I will. Pray for me~_~.
I'm not feeling very well to night, I'm not sicked but I felt uneasy. I tell you about it....
Last night, I dreamt about my brother, I'm not too sure if it was really him or my imaginary but I really think he was my brother, and I was shocked on what I did to him. My heart feels nothing when doing it, I....cut.....my....brother's.....forehead!!!!
I cut through it and I can see clearly the brain....urgh...I don't know what I'm doing but I kept on cutting is not a good word, I slice him maybe....and then I heard his voice, "It hurts" Then, I stopped my heart said he's still alive I have to cut him dipper....
What a dream and I don't want something like that to happen, well I do love to read thriller novel and I enjoy the way the killer kill 'things' and sometime I can't help myself imagine it, I also watch CSI a lot Vegar, Miami or New York, I watches it all, but the most thriller series that I like is Dexter!
He has two faces good and bad, different during the day and night, but he only hunts for serial killer!!. Well that also makes him into one....He is so mysterious and hard to understand with, he doesn't have any feelings, I hard to get to see him crying or laughing. If he do, he just looks like pretending to be sad or happy....watch it!
What I'm saying??
Whatever....maybe my head had gone wrong and I think I need to get some rest.....'o'
by the way my watch shows 12.00 a.m.....well not quite it has pass 12.00 meaning.....~_~
IT IS MY ROOMATE'S BIRTHDAY.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS!!!!
Monday, March 22, 2010
For those who understand what it means, please remember it~_~
I hope it to arrive quickly...
By the way, Earth Hour this year is not on that date but it is on 27 March....
I remembered last year celebration, gladly I'm not in dark, my family and I were out that night, for dinner.
The shops nearby slowly falling into darkness as the clocks tick at 8.30 p.m. if I not mistaken....
I can wait for Earth Hour this year, how it will be in INTI??
No one is talking about it....hm...
I didn't see any banner in INTI about it either....hm...
Anyway I'm just hoping for something to happen the next day of Earth Hour....~_~
see you soon my beloved 28 ~_~

It is really a quite atmosphere here in INTI. I felt bored and I planned to go home. Well the reason why I'm here is because I want to use the internet. ~_~ There are some works that I had to do using the internet especially the text production task that Ms. Dil gave me last week and also few web pages for me to look up. I'm afraid that I will not learn much if I was in my home right now.
My brother just bought a new PS2 games and I seem to addicted to it. Well don't be surprised if I manage to beat the guys in class when playing with video games. I do like them but it gave me hard time to stop. ~_~
Same goes to the games I've played in Facebook, especially Farmville....
I manage to catch up with my friends during the sem break last year...hehehe...
But when I realize how bad I did in my last semester exam, I tried to overcome thus addiction. One month without Farmville = No facebooking!
I did it but it does not last for long....huhu..
ok...ok...back to the point...
I'm planning to go back to Putrajaya....~_~
bye2 INTI, see you this Sunday :p

"We were operating on the presumption that nothing's there," said NASA ice scientist Robert Bindschadler, who will be presenting the initial findings and a video at an American Geophysical Union meeting Wednesday. "It was a shrimp you'd enjoy having on your plate."
"We were just gaga over it," he said of the 3-inch-long, orange critter starring in their two-minute video. Technically, it's not a shrimp. It's a Lyssianasid amphipod, which is distantly related to shrimp.
The video is likely to inspire experts to rethink what they know about life in harsh environments. And it has scientists musing that if shrimp-like creatures can frolic below 600 feet of Antarctic ice in subfreezing dark water, what about other hostile places? What about Europa, a frozen moon of Jupiter?
"They are looking at the equivalent of a drop of water in a swimming pool that you would expect nothing to be living in and they found not one animal but two," said biologist Stacy Kim of the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories in California, who joined the NASA team later. "We have no idea what's going on down there."
Microbiologist Cynan Ellis-Evans of the British Antarctic Survey called the finding intriguing.
"This is a first for the sub-glacial environment with that level of sophistication," Ellis-Evans said. He said there have been findings somewhat similar, showing complex life in retreating ice shelves, but nothing quite directly under the ice like this.
Ellis-Evans said it's possible the creatures swam in from far away and don't live there permanently.
But Kim, who is a co-author of the study, doubts it. The site in West Antarctica is at least 12 miles from open seas. Bindschadler drilled an 8-inch-wide hole and was looking at a tiny amount of water. That means it's unlikely that that two critters swam from great distances and were captured randomly in that small of an area, she said.
Yet scientists were puzzled at what the food source would be for these critters. While some microbes can make their own food out of chemicals in the ocean, complex life like the amphipod can't, Kim said.
So how do they survive? That's the key question, Kim said.
"It's pretty amazing when you find a huge puzzle like that on a planet where we thought we know everything," Kim said.
I just got back to inti last night, my family are now at Putrajaya and as I want to use the internet, I went back to INTI. My family have no plans for this holiday so I think its better for me to be here, I can't study at home as I will keep on playing with my brothers, I'll become too lazy to do homework, sleep+eat+watch movie+play+shopping=my holiday, so I had decided to go back to INTI, do my english and some studies, and I found out there are still other SAM students who haven't or didn't going back!
I felt lonely in this room but get to use with it, as I am always been left alone when Qila had gone back....
1 week is a short period for me, so I think that there's no point of going back. If I stay here I can use the internet at ease without my brother disturbing me, I can do my blog without my mum watching it, and I can open my facebook freely....haha~_~
I mean is that I can do my work at my time, I don't like to be force to study and study, there's time where I want to go out, or facebooking, or study, or anything that girl alaways do.....haha
Sometime the "force" give me a big pressure, and sometime I needed it when I was too lazy to do work so I want to be forced. but I realize that what I really want is my own time, I know that I can't manage my time wisely, I always follow my heart wants, sometime I could control it but sometimes I fail. It's hard to control our own desire, I always desire everything in this world untill I tend to forget myself.
I know it's dangerous to be like that, and I keep on telling myself, remembering myself, who you really are?
ok...enough with the stories, I have to get back to my work.....
have a nice day~_~
I had a consultation with Ms. Dil last Friday on how to improve my english not just for the sake of the paper but for talking with people in english too. She gave me some websites for me to do my own exercise on vocabulary, and comprehansion. I have high hopes that I could improve my English by this year eventhough there's no much I could show how I improved but I know I had improved. Learning is a long journey and I always said this to myself, learning is bitter but the result is sweeter, I'm not sure if this is someone's quote but I knew this by myself and I always said that to myself when I feel down.~_~
Something to share :
Last friday, while I was waiting for my friend to fetch me up from the Inti bus stop, a Nigerian guy talk to me.
I was scared not because he might be dangerous but I'm afraid that I can't respond to him as my English was bad. He talks and I respond ( a little ), he asked and I answered, we talk for a long time, asking for each courses, families, life in malaysia (INTI), and i even exchanged numbers with him! I don't if it's a right thing my friends who saw me that day said that I was too careless maybe because they affraid something bad happen to me as they said that we can't trust them. I don't know what to say as that time I was thinking that it's good to have friends, a foreigner, either his a black or white...
I remebered one thing, about what he said to me, "I'm sorry, you talked to fast", haha...I talked too fast as I want to finish the conversation quick, I'm going out to Seremban that day, visiting my old school TKC. I was curious to know what's the result for 2009 spm.
About what I said just know, Is it wrong to give my number to him???
He tried to call me before but I didn't answer......I know it was rude but I kept on thinking what other people said including my mother......~_~
