Pak Google, the modern wizard

I have no favourite site in particular; but in terms of internet traffic and cache memory, Google dominates my tunnel of high-speed fiber optics (a jammed up 'tunnel').

Google..with the "I'm feeling lucky" button *ahem*

Every time when I reach out to the window of web browsing, Google always pops out and say "May I help you.....what do you want this time around?" Google is my personal wizard; it can magically search for links, scholar papers, pictures, road directions, and even translations that I thought harder to understand than the blue language of Navi (Pandora's native language).

Apart of the word "Google" which represents the web search engine (wizard), it has become a verb that used by us in everyday lives. Sentences like "I'm googling a picture of your mother in AMSTERDAM.." or "ask Pak Google (modeled from our national laurate Pak Samad) for answers lah!" ..... imagine the wonders of Google can do for you!

I shall not promote Google (which I wish I get paid for it) anymore, go ask your friendly Pak Google if you have any mysteries to solve!

Relay For Life 2011 KL

For the event coverage, My groups mates and I (comprises of me, Aiphos Hoo, Hazwan and Amir) went to the Relay for life charity walk in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in Bangi. In conjunction with the assignment given, we've joined the walk as well (it's for a good cause, why not right?).

Relay For Life is an over-night event, to celebrate and commemorate the lives of cancer survivors as well as to remember the lives of loved ones who have lost the battle. Citizens from all walks of life have come together to join the community in the fight against cancer. This noble idea of Relay for Life came from Dr Gordan Klatt Washington, who jogged for 24 hours to raise money for his patients. This idea was then organised into an annual event, held around the world to commit this noble act.

When we got the event at first, we were shocked as we were surrounded with people in yellow. We were somewhat intimidated and wondered if we were in the
Bersih 3.0 (eh cepat-nya nak rally lagi?) Luckily, the
Honorary Advisor of the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM), Datuk Zuraidah Atan brushed off
rumors on stage when the event was officiated.

Bersih 3.0?

The event was officiated at 6pm. The event's message emphasized on "Celebrate, Remember, and fight back!", dedicating to patients in fighting cancer. Moving on, after the opening ceremony, we've joined the mass on the walk around the stadium. I saw all walks of life came together in the walk, I even saw some Americans and Singaporeans walking with us. A lot of companies played their part in this relay, walking together with their colleagues to show they pledge to cancer patients.

At 8.30pm, the highlight of the event, Luminaria took place. Everyone lit up a lantern around the stadium, honouring patients fighting cancer, encouraging them to reignite the spirit of fighting, just like the strong flames of fire lighted. We went home around 9pm, after walking countless rounds and got tired! As soon I got home, many parts of my body aching, forcing myself to lie and sleep through the whole night....what a day.

It was nevertheless a worthy experience, a reminder to myself to exercise more often! And of course, to stay healthy!

Intoduction & opinions on the first class

Judge me and you'll have no time left to love me...

As one said, nobody knows you better than yourself; but quite frankly I’m not sure of myself of who I really am. Ocean of people, and no one is born the way like you are, and god created everyone fairly and uniquely….bla bla bla, cut the crap.

Yes, there are plenty of terms to describe one’s personality and character as a whole, but I’m not sure which category that I fall into. Allow me to explore myself as we move on in the blog post.

My full name is Tan Sian Hoo (formally introducing as Tan, I assume most people can't remember my full name), and I'm a proud local Petaling Jaya, city boy. I'm a chinese ethnic, and born as the only son in my family; got whole lot of pressure to carry the family bloodline. I was educated in a national chinese primary school, hence my fluency (not so) in mandarin, with cantonese and hokkien dialets to tie with. I was then educated in SMK Damansara Jaya, where I've mingled in the high social elite people there. For tertiary education, I've enrolled and graduated in SEGi University College, with a diploma in Mass Communication. And now I'm pursuing a degree in the same field, in the same university college. Besides busying studying, I've also employed as P1 customer service personnel, and as a new property project consultant.

A proud diploma graduate *ahem*

According to Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test, I'm somewhat extrovert and had a good social life so far, but yet quite reserved inside. I'm also fall in to the group of sensing (S), thinking (T), judgment (J), which means that I'm a quite practical and logical guy (I hope). Being in the working field of customer service and real estate, I've endured myself to socialise and complete every task given, as the responsibilities given are tough, my subjects are really hard to convinced and satisfied.

As for the comment on the first class, it was dull at first as we were given technical facts of the evolution in technology in modern history; it was informative yet repetitive. I'm thankful that we have a young and unorthodox lecturer who I can acquire new knowledge in a newer perspective. The debate spied up the class, it was exhilarating yet disquietude experience for me.

How would you perceive me? What do you have in mind about our first class? Drop it in your comment box!
