school holidays was officially over yesterday. today is just another day. wake up early and manage to be in school on time. assembly as usual.
looking back, there was nothing much i did during the break. not going anywhere except for my cousin'n wedding in Malacca. The groom is on my side and the bride is gorgeous with tiny winy waist hahaha. i should remember what i said about her in another 2, 3 years. hope she's still have that waist..so bad of me..just kidding!!
this thursday i have another project with my supervisor. this time we will headed to Taman Negara. lets read the history of Taman Negara. Taman Negara was declared for conservation in 1938 and has become Malaysia's premier national park and the largest in the country covering over 4343 square kilometres (434,300 hectares) of primary forest, spans across three states Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang - and is situated in the centre of the Peninsula Malaysia. Taman Negara is the most extensive protected area of pristine, lowland, evergreen rainforest in the country.
Taman Negara originated from a Pahang State Legislation in 1925 and in the district of Jerantut. Over 1300 square kilometres of tropical jungle in its natural state was designated "THE GUNUNG TAHAN GAME RESERVE". This became the National Park in 1938 when the Sultan of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan set aside the present area, and named it the "KING GEORGE V NATIONAL PARK". After Independence, the name was changed to TAMAN NEGARA. The stated purpose of Taman Negara is "to utilise the land within the park in perpetuity, for the propagation, protection and preservation of indigeneous flora and fauna". With so much to see and do, a trip to Taman Negara is a must on your itinerary.
well, i'm not going just for the fun of it but doing my second research. i cant wait for the boat ride. i heard we need at least 3 hours to reach Kg.Bantal the settlement of the indegenous people of Batek clan. we will staying there until sunday so no facebook, blogging, or chatting for me. see u next monday only!!bye..

My heart goes to those who has been affected very badly by tsunami especially in Japan. i pray to god it will not happen here in Malaysia even thought nothing is impossible nowadays. i cannot imagine the sorrow and despairs of the people who had lost their family members and their belonging. oh god please ease their pain in whatever way You can give them.
me too having a tsunami right now. i had made a terribly bad mistake and i had to pay for the consequences especially in monetary terms. but please god give me a second chance to rectify this problem. i made lots of mistakes in the past but this is the biggest so far. tomorrow is the D-Day for me and i hope i can get through. please give me the strength.
whatever the consequences i am still grateful that my problems are not as bad as whatever happened in Japan. the total lost is so huge, peoples had lost their family members, their property and many things. i cannot imagine how they are going to rebuild their life back to normal.i pray to god, give them the strength to face the world after this.

hi all..nothing much to share except yesterday actually was International Women's Day..lets do some reading what exactly it was all about...
IWD is now an official holiday in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal (for women only), Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother's Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women's and society's thoughts about women's equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that 'all the battles have been won for women' while many feminists from the 1970's know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women's visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think that women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women's education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men.
However, great improvements have been made. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so the tone and nature of IWD has, for the past few years, moved from being a reminder about the negatives to a celebration of the positives.
Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women's craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more.
Many global corporations have also started to more actively support IWD by running their own internal events and through supporting external ones. For example, on 8 March search engine and media giant Google some years even changes its logo on its global search pages. Year on year IWD is certainly increasing in status. The United States even designates the whole month of March as 'Women's History Month'.
So make a difference, think globally and act locally !! Make everyday International Women's Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.

our prime minister and ministers
these kids are from Semai Group
they performing their cultural dance for this program
arent they cute?what an experience! eventhought i'm still fatique, tired and having a backache but i was enjoying my stay in Pahang. we managed to visit 2 villages. that was in Kg. Runchang and Pos Betau in Pahang.
overall they lived below poverty. they have a basic necessities. with no electricity and clen water. they dont even bother about educations eventhough they been provided with schools with good infrastructure. but the problem is they dont have good transportation to go to school.they kids was eager to learn but most of the time they couldnt catch up with the syllabus. they speak their own language so bahasa melayu is their second language. so you know how difficult for them to grab the subject.
but they love entertainment. they can sing well and most of them have good voices.so the way to tackle them is with song. you can see how lively they are when they sing a song. you name one song they can know. amazing! maybe we can introduce something like learning through a song for them? hope the education ministry can do something about this so they can be better in their academic achievement.
