Tax assignment and Cash Flow Statement

I had wanted to finish my tax assignment and catch up a bit in my studies during this weekend as final exam is just around the corner.

During Friday night, when I was still figuring how to do my tax assignment, I received a call from my old friend. He said that he is in KL. He asked whether I wanted to go Bukit Jalil for the “Pesta Tanglung”. Initially, I was quite reluctant to go as one of my friends who had been there told me there’s nothing much to see. But my old friend said that there are a few secondary classmates joining them. If I don’t turn up, I will need to wait for some time to hang out them. I have no choice but to meet up with them.

Though Bukit Jalil is nearby, I had never been there. Theoretically, I know how to go there; practically I do not know the way there. Therefore, I just try my luck. Even if I don’t go on Friday, sooner or later I have to drive there as I’m going for David Tao’s concert in October.
When I was on my way there, I saw an accident just in front of South City Plaza.

After parking my car, I bought the ticket and meet them inside the fair. The “Pesta Tanglung” is just beside the stadium. They are altogether 6 of them. Two are from NUS, one from LimKokWing, one from IMU and another from UPM. I had not been seeing them for years. When we started chatting, I realized that most of us still remain the same. Same at the sense of, the way we joke, the way we speak and the way we crap.

Of all the Lanterns, I love this dragon the most. It is made using plates, spoons and other kitchen utensils.

This is the world’s smallest Qur-an

I went home quite early at around 12am as I need to wake up early the next morning.
On Saturday, I had earlier planned to go Klang with my friends. There’s a ship, MV Doulus in Port Klang. There’s also a bookfair on the ship. My friend told me that this ship comes to Port Klang once every four year. Therefore income derived from the ship is exempted from income tax as it is a casual call.

There is this one book that really caught my attention.

If you observed well enough, you will realize that “units” are used instead of “RM” on the price tag. I guess this is for the convenience of the seller. When the ship sails to another country, they do not need to change a new price tag. All they need to do is just change the currency equivalent to one “Unit”. In Malaysia, 100 Units is equal to RM8. Therefore that book is RM24.

This is list of Fireman on the ship.

See anything familiar? Haha, Jalur Gemilang is there, there’s a Malaysian fireman on the ship.

I came back in the evening. Was very tired as I was out for the whole day. I watched Astro Talent Quest 2006 before I slept until Sunday afternoon. It’s another day that I totally didn’t touch my textbooks.

Today, after my lunch, I started doing AAP - cash flow statement. When I was half way, my friend called. It’s entertainment club’s treasurer. He told me that he is working on entertainment’s club theme song. He asked me to go over and give him a helping hand. We changed the lyrics of Andy Lau’s “Kick Out A Future”(ti chu ge wei lai) - Shaolin soccer’s theme song. Now the lyric is done. We are now searching for the Karaoke version of this song as we are going to sing it with a different lyric. Hopefully I can get it done by this week. Besides that, Entertainment club will be shooting a second video clip on Tuesday. If everything goes as planned, you would be able to watch it by Wednesday.

My tax assignment and Cash Flow statement? Let’s not mentioned it, it’s not done yet.

I went mid valley yesterday. Though I go Mid Valley quite often, this time I went for a different “mission”- I need to secure sponsors for the roadshow.

Initially I thought I could straight away walk in and talk to the boss or person in charge about the sponsorship. But the first few shops we went in, we were given the HQ telephone number. The staffs said that only the HQ would deal with those sponsorship things.

One thing that gets me mad is this watch making company. I am not going to reveal the company’s name. What I could say is that you could just add the letter "s" in front of the products this company is producing/selling and you will get the company's name. When we called the marketing manager, she said that “We usually would not associate our brand with any local movie, plus your movie is already done. If your movie is still half way, we can ask you to shoot our shop.” When I heard this, I started scolding bad words. I swear that I wouldn’t wear this company’s watch ever in my life. Jia Hao said that this brand is very “Ba4 Bai1” one.

When we was just about to leave, Jia Hao saw someone familiar. When Jia Hao told me this, we were already far away, so we just went back.

P/S : I got a contest form to shoot a 30 second video clip using mobile phone yesterday morning. This contest is organized by The Star. Since shooting the Pepsi ad, I’ve been dreaming of becoming a director, perhaps I need to start with this 30 seconds video clip, huh?

Goodbye world cup 2006

It’s almost two weeks that the Italians lifted the world cup. At last, I have successfully reverted to the normal life I usually live. The whole world cup campaign took about a month’s time. However I felt that it’s more like a dream. I could still recall the first goal scored by Philip Lahm. And now, the world cup is in Italy. Everything seems to happen in just a blink of eye.

After Euro 2004, I have this as my “souvenirs”.

For this world cup, the only thing left for me is this stack of Star World Cup Edition.

The first day of the world cup, where Germany thrashed Costa Rica,

The day that I cried

The day that I cried even louder(cos need to wait four more years)

What's happening in UPM??

For those of you that come across today’s papers headline that the MOE is going to set up a committee in UPM “to look into the fracas between two groups of undergraduates” , you might be asking the question – what’s happening in UPM?

I was busy earlier this week so I missed out the news as well. On Friday night, I surf the net and checked some sites only to find out that there are some conflicts between some student organizations in UPM. Those involved includes the Students Progressive Front(mainly Chinese students) and the students representative council(mostly malay students). UPM vice chancellor earlier describes this as a racial issue which he later denies.

This incident started when the Students Progressive Front (SPF) wanted to start a service counter in the hostel for the welfare of the students in 12th college. However they were disturbed by some students from the university student council. Below are the links to the video clip about what happened in UPM on Monday.

Clip 1

Clip 2

So, the next time when you read some news that you couldn’t understand, come and check it online. The news you read in the papers is most probably censored. There are a couple of sites that you could count on, Kit’s blog, Malaysia Today, Malaysia Kini, Merdeka Review, or even my blog.

The making of Pepsi Zizou ad

I had been busy doing assignments for the past few days that I couldn't spare some time to blog about the Pepsi Zizou ad. Now I have only one more assignment to hand in before preparing for my final exam.

This ad started with a crazy idea from me. After the world cup final, football was the only thing on my mind. I find it very "unusual" when there's no football on TV. In short, I couldn't get out from the world cup; sometimes I even woke up automatically at 2am. Out of the blue, an idea flashed across my mind. Initially, I wanted to shoot a video clip about Zidane's headbutt on Materazzi. After putting in some thought, I came out with this Pepsi advertisement idea. I immediately phoned my friend and they agree to shoot this ad.

We took only one day(this Tuesday) to produce this whole video clip. The location of this ad is somewhere near our condo. We went there at about 5pm. At that time, the sun is still a bit glaring, so we started with those off field scene. Our first scene was terrible; we kept NG-ing, at least 5-6 shots for a 5 second scene. Perhaps it's normal for a first timer!

After that, we started shooting those on the field scene. The "one-two-jus" part took us quite a long time to shoot as most of the time our camera man couldn't catch up with our "one-two-jus" pace. So we have to slow our pace down. The penalty shot by our president is also quite a difficult scene as he needed to slip when he fires the penalty. Anyway, he managed it in just one shot, no NG. As for my diving save, I have to admit that it is quite faked. That's because I'm specialized in attacking midfield, not a goalkeeper! The ground is rough and I have to use my hands to support my body from falling. As a consequence, I got some bruises on my palms. Even until now, I could still feel the pain. The referee, though has the least acting part in the video clip acted the best among three of us. Yeap~ he's the best actor in this ad. Anyway, I'm just worried that Coca-Cola might take legal action against him! LOL.

We also get to know some kids playing football there while shooting this clip. Don't look down upon them, you will be surprised that these kids could play some football tricks and their dribbling is good. When FIFA announced Malaysia's football ranking at 146th placing, I thought that Malaysia will never get back to the glorious days of football. I changed my mind when I see the way these kids play football. They are all primary students. If they start some professional training, I believe they can have great achievements in football and make Malaysia's dream to win the 2010 Africa World Cup a reality. Ehem~ did I just say world cup? Actually, I meant Tiger Cup. We took a photo with them. I love this photo very much, not that I look handsome in this photo. This whole photo is taken very nicely; and the sunlight from behind the camera just made this photo looks greater.

See the kid in Man Utd jersey? His friends called him Ronaldo, the handsome Ronaldo that get Rooney sent off, not the fat one. The way he plays football looks exactly the same as Roanaldo. Our president said he wants to shoot a video clip on him. I'm not sure how serious he is about this.

I edited the clips from 9pm until 1am in the morning. Our president kept urging me to speed up while I'm editing. This made me forget to include a slide for our camera man. A hundred thanks to Ah Bin, our camera man. After finish editing the clip, we immediately upload it to youtube. The whole ad is nearly 50 MB and this took a very long time to upload. We leave it for our friend to upload the clip as we have 8am class the next morning. The only thing I remember during tutorial class the next day is that our president patted my back and told me that

"Our video clip was successfully uploaded!"

Two third of the world’s intelligence is captured in this photo!

This is the most classic photo ever taken in mankind history. All the world’s top brains are in this photo. To name a few, Albert Einstein, Schrödinger, Heisenberg, Neil Bohr, Lorentz, Max Planck, Marie Curie are all in this photo. It is the 5th Solvay Congress, Brussels, October 1927. The meeting was dedicated to quantum theory.


From Schrödinger’s cat to Zhemin’s lie

Quantum mechanics is one of the hardest topics to digest in physics. It is very abstract and it deals with probability. When someone mentioned the Theory of Relativity, straight away you would associate it with Albert Einstein. However, in Quantum mechanics, there are a group of scientists, namely Albert Einstein, Schrödinger, Heisenberg, Fowler, Dirac, Compton, Broglie, Born, Neil Bohr, and Max Planck contributing to it.

Though the Theory of Relativity is as tough either, we could simplify it in one sentence.
“When a particle travel at a very high speed, near to the speed of light, the length of the particle will increase and the time will become slower.”
But, there is no way you could “summarize” the quantum mechanics in a sentence.

Schrödinger came out with a very famous experiment in quantum mechanics. We call it the Schrödinger’s cat. In this experiment, Schrödinger put a cat inside a sealed black box. He also places a radioactive particle beside the cat. Once the radioactive particle is exposed to light, it will decay and emit radioactive wave that would kill the cat. This happens in a very short time frame that once you open the black box, the cat dies immediately. Therefore, the question is – Is the cat alive? You know that if you do not open the box, the cat is safe and alive beside the particle(since it is not exposed to light). But how do you verify this? Open the box? The particle would be exposed to light and the radioactive wave would kill the cat immediately. Quite a dilemma, isn’t it?

Now I have another theory similar to Schrödinger’s cat, I called it Zhemin’s lie. In this experiment, I will make a statement(first statement) – “I am going to tell you a lie”. The main question we need to tackle in this experiment - Is my first statement a truth or a lie? If your keep silent and do not ask me any follow up question, my first statement becomes a lie(since I do not need to answer anything, I am not telling a lie). However, if you ask a follow up question, then I will make my second statement. Since in the first statement, I said that “I am going to tell you a lie”, therefore, I will tell you a lie in the second statement, and this makes my first statement a truth.

Confused? Don’t worry, study more about Schrödinger’s cat and you will understand more about my theory later. After all, Schrödinger’s cat is the basic of Zhemin’s lie.

Friendship forever?? Friendship forever!!!

Friends are family that you choose, so the saying goes. Most of us acknowledge the fact that friends are important and that a life without friends is a sad one indeed. Having friends that you can turn to, have fun with, do crazy things together, and reveals secret to is a must for most of us but can friendship really last forever?

There are times that a friendship needs to face some testing. May it be something to do with $, falling for the same opposite sex or any other conflict of interests. However, things are hard to understand when friendship is questioned due to a small minor issue. Things like borrowing a pencil, mistakenly signed the wrong attendance sheet, being late for a date or perhaps not answering a phone call, just to name a few. The question is whether friendship is build on a soft fragile foundation, that a small issue would bring years of friendship to an end.

There are two types of people that I personally do not admire. The first one is people that always put friendship at stake. This type of people would warn you to do or not to do something they like/dislike else they will break the friendship. I see this people as not knowing and appreciating the true meaning of friendship. To me, friends are like RPC shares – once a friend, always a friend. Therefore, the number of friends that you have could only increase as you grow older. A friendship is not something that you could measure quantitatively. A strong friendship could not be calculated by the times you go outing in a month, how many times you go for tea together, the number of secrets you shared together, how many words you speak to each other everyday, or how many games of FIFA you played together. Friendship is something very abstract; it is something deep inside the heart. You might not be seeing each other, you might not be talking to each other yet when you face any difficulty, you know that your friend would definitely be there for you.

The second type of people that I find it disturbing is those that always take things seriously. They could always make a joke on you but you are not allowed to pull a small prank on them. This is a typical “head they win, tail you lose” situation. No matter what, you are always the biggest loser. They enjoy teasing/joking with others when it comes to things that do not involve them. Yet when people do the same thing to them, things wouldn’t be the same.

Taking into account the world population, the probability for a person to meet a stranger and later become friends is very low. In fact, the probability is approximately equal to zero. Just imagine that it takes so many “what if” to make it impossible for two strangers to meet up with each other. What if your friend does not enroll in the same education institution as you? What if both of you are not arranged in the same class? What if your friend doesn’t start talking to you on the first day both of you meet up? What if you are not born in the same country as where you are now? What if your parents decide to migrate to overseas when you are four years old? What if…..What if…..and it is a never ending “What if”. Therefore, the next time when you decide to stop befriend anyone, think twice! There are a few things in world that men would never complain that he possesses too many of it. Money is one. Friend is another.

This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
  • "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us "universe", a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

Public Lecture by Nobel Laureate Professor Yang Chen Ning

I had an awful presentation on RFID this morning. Please forgive me, I woke up 10 minutes before the class started and was in a hurry to get to school. In fact, I should have some “rehearsal” with my group mates before the class starts. Anyway, it’s over.

I rush to Hotel Le Meridian after tutorial as I am attending Prof. Yang’s lecture. The lecture starts at 2pm. I anticipated a large crowd to attend this lecture so I went earlier. When I reached there, to my surprise, I am the first person. So I snapped some pictures of the hotel and a photo of mine in front of a giant mirror.

The title of the lecture is : Science and Technology in the 21st century. Prof. Yang started off with Benjamin Franklin in the 18th century. He then showed a photo of him taken together with Rabi and Lamb. It's a black and white photo. He said that Lamb was the oldest living Nobel Laureate for physics. He then touched something about MRI-Magnetic Resonance Image. He also mentioned some other names like Hilbert, Godel, Turning and Von Neumann. After that, he went into Quantum Mechanics. He stressed that Quantum Mechanics is one of the most important fundamental for a computer. This is because men develop semi conductor from Quantum mechanics and computer chip comes from semi conductor. I first heard about Quantum Mechanics from Bro. Oh, one of my secondary school teachers. It was a very interesting topic and I get some books to study about it. But it’s too hard for me to understand the Quantum Mechanics theory.

Prof. Yang then talked about Biotechnology. He mentioned that the Double Helix report is the most important report ever in Biotechnology. I managed to copy some of the quotes of the Double Helix report. However my handwriting speed couldn’t cope with his lecture pace so it’s just half hanging.

“It has not escaped our notice that the specific pairing we have postulated immediately suggests a possible copying mechanism….”

It was Q&A session after the lecture. I get the chance to ask him some questions. It was my pleasure to get the chance to interact with a Nobel Laureate. Initially, I wanted to ask something about Theory of Relativity but I don’t think I know much about Einstein Theory so I changed my mind. I asked about the Manhattan Project instead. I get to know from the fliers that he was in University of Chicago in 1946. Enrico Fermi – the father of atomic bomb is actually Prof. Yang’s lecturer. I asked him to share his experience of the Manhattan Project since he was in University of Chicago at that time. He said that during that time, USA and China are on bad terms. His family members are all in China; therefore he said that he was “smart” enough to stay away from that project. He also defended Enrico Fermi’s decision to develop Atomic bomb for USA saying that he was left with no choice since he do not want the Atomic Bomb technology falls into Adolf Hitler’s hands.

After the whole lecture ends, Prof. Yang has a press conference in the VIP room. I somehow managed to get into the VIP room. Do not ask me how I get into there, it was by chance. The reporters asked him something about the renewed energy. Maybe tomorrow we can read about the full reports in the newspaper. I do not hear any reporters asking questions about whether his wife is pregnant. It seems that Malaysia’s reporters are very “obedient”. After the pc, I wanted to take a photo with Prof. Yang but he left very quickly. If I managed to take a photo with him, maybe I will withdraw from UTAR tomorrow and enroll in a physics course.

I rush back to campus to attend my finance lecture after that. My mind is just full of the physics theory – Quantum Theory, Theory of Relativity, Einstein, Stephen Hawking…. that I couldn’t absorb anything in the finance class. What the lecturer said about Foreign Direct Investment, Joint Venture and etc just couldn’t go into my mind.

Prof. Yang is having another lecture tomorrow in UM about his theory – Symmetry. I’m still considering whether to attend since this topic is too technical for me. Maybe I will go cos the desire to take a photo with prof. Yang is still burning wild in my heart. Though this is not the most interesting lecture I had attended, it is certainly the most high profile lecture I had ever attended. Most importantly, I regain my love and affection towards physics – the subject once I thought could be my career.

p/s : Entertainment club is currently working on a Pepsi ad. It might be ready by next week(I use the word "might" as it is subject to uncertatinty. I will post it as soon I finish editing the whole video clip. BTW, Entertainment club's president had come out with his own blog. Click here to see what he wrote for his first post.

UTAR dance

I got this video clip - KMB dance, from my cousin quite some time ago. If I'm not mistaken KMB stands for Kolej Matrikulasi Banting. There are this three guys dancing a weird dance with Leon Lai's song as background music.

And now, my friends had come out with a UTAR version. I call this UTAR dance.

Some description of the dancers.

Lead Dancer : known as Utar's Jay Chou. Used to be the lead singer whenever we go KAraoke. Play fantastic guitar and is coming out with his DIY album very soon. He is currently preparing for the Astro Talent Quest 2007.

Supporting Dancer 1 : He is UTAR's entertainment club president. He is also directing the video clip - UTAR shaolin soccer. Had become one of the most popular celebrity in UTAR since performing the Shaolin soccer video clip live in UTAR. He is also the very first Accounting Society vice president who had the ambition to acquire the YOGA club.

Supporting Dancer 2 : Another great singer from UTAR. Had won all the big big small small singing competition in Malacca. Famous for Eason and Jacky Cheong's song. He definitely had a great vocal and now he is looking forward to diversify his career by this debut dance.

P/S : If any talent-scout came across this video clip and would like to sign the above future super star for album recording or acting in any music video, feel free to contact me through mail.

Have you ever seen a player failed to score a penalty when there is no goalkeeper in front of the goal? I fail to score one this morning.

I was taking my account mid term exam this morning. I walk in the exam hall confidently as I (feel that) was well prepared. However, when I was to pass up my answer script, I found out something fishy. I did a very stupid mistake – I calculated the pre-acquisition profit wrongly. This affects almost the whole consolidated Income Statement and Balance Sheet. When my pre-acq profit is wrong, my goodwill is wrong, then total impairment loss is wrong, so is my accumulated profit and loss, and the Minority interest. If there is one thing I hate about account, this is it. A small innocent mistake would lead to disaster, affecting the whole financial statement. Of course, I didn’t cry like the English players(losing to Portugal on penalties) after exam. My next exam is four days later, not four years later. However, I feel bad after exam, really really bad. I kept asking myself how I did such mistake.

This whole week certainly hasn’t been my week. I was kept busy with all the assignments, presentations, and preparing for mid-term test. I have virtually no time for leisure. I haven't finish reading some of the June issue magazines that i subscribed and now the July issue is out! In fact, I have to scarify some of my sleep to complete my assignment on time. Does England elimination from the world cup put me in a bad mood? I have no idea, maybe yes, maybe no. However I did have some sleepless night after England was knocked-out from the tournament.

After today’s exam, I think I will have to call off my plan to go Jalan Bukit Bintang for the world cup final tomorrow. I don’t want to utter any bad words after my taxation exam on Wednesday. I definitely need some motivation right now. Hopefully things will become better after I attend Prof. Yang’s lecture. I am looking forward to meeting him hoping that I get inspired by him.
