The Naming System


Many different parts of the world have different naming system. The most common naming system is putting our family name right after our given name or reversed, putting our family name first and then our given name. However in Malaysia, we don’t do that. We don’t have a family name. We only put our given name and our father’s name. In between them we put ‘Bin’ for male and ‘Binti’ for female. But, people in Malaysia nowadays start to NOT put the Bin and Binti for some unknown reason and it creates problems. But first, let me tell you how our names in Malaysia look like.

Male name – Ali Bin Abu

Female name – Nurul Binti Ahmad

As you can see, the ‘Bin’ and ‘Binti’ is between our name and our father’s name. However, most of us don’t have only one given name. We mostly have two or three given names. So our names mostly look like this:

My Take on Love


Love is such an important thing towards people my age. I see many people going into and out of relationship many times. My take on love, however, is that I think it’s meaningless. I believe that falling in love, or at least having a relationship at my age is a complete waste of time. Why? Because most of the relationship established would not last that long anyway. Eventually, all the couples today would break in a few years, I guarantee it. There are reasons why I feel this way.

I’m a Terrible Teacher


I never EVER want to be a teacher. Why? Simple, because I’m freaking bad at being one. I can be an average teacher if the people I’m teaching have a pretty strong fundamental knowledge of the subject or they are just fast learners. However, If they don’t have any basic knowledge or talent, well, this is when you can see that I’m in fact a terrible teacher. Let me give you some examples.

The World of ‘Cables’

computer cables

Cables. We are living in a world where we can’t survive without these ‘cables’. What are cables you may ask? Well, it means a group of people who has the authority or power over something. For example, you want to apply for a job but your academic requirement isn’t sufficient. But you coincidentally, know someone from inside the company. They then help you to somehow bypass the requirement needed and get you a job in the company. Basically, you use them to get a job from the inside. These inside people are called cables. I don’t know if anyone out there uses this term the same way as we do but here in Malaysia, we meant it that way. Now, I’m going to talk about one particular organization in my college that are apparent on having these kinds of people.

Kung Fu Panda 3 Makes Every Sense


I love Kung Fu Panda. From the first movie to the last. I follow them since I was a kid. Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2 don’t get much complain from my acquaintances but this last movie, they complain a little bit too much which annoy me. They say that there is not enough fight scene, not enough joke and that some things are just way too convenient for the plot progression. Because I’m so irritated with them, I write this essay explaining why they are all wrong. I believe that the points I’m about to give will not be found anywhere… unless you search it on the internet.

Warning: This essay contains minor spoilers. Read at your own risks.

Why I Hate Formal Debate


School debate is probably the worst thing anybody has ever thought of. I despise it. When I was at school, I entered an English debate competition between classes and I really hated it. Well mostly because I’m not fluent in English and when it was my turn to speak, I stuttered and barely speak anything… Oh man that was a really bad experience. Anyway, I hate debate because it just doesn’t really make any sense. It doesn’t actually discuss about the problem at hand. They go round and round trying to prove that they’re right and the other party’s wrong, even if they have to make up some stuff. Did you know that Empire State building was actually built three thousand years ago by Mongolians? Well now you know. You can confirm this fact in the 3rd edition of the Oxford dictionary on page 274 line 68.

Enough blabbering let me just demonstrate how ridiculous a debate actually sounds.
