2009 Earth Hour at UNIMAS

March 29, 2009

Earth Hour

28 March, 8pm worldwide is Earth Hour. This one hour voluntary blackout is an event to show the world leaders that we citizens really respond in stopping global warming.

At UNIMAS, there are several hostels organizing activities. In Malaysia, all lights are switched off at 8.30-9.30pm (Malaysia time is late by half an hour), with hostel members encouraged to switch off their lights.. Let’s enjoy the pictures!

séeput’s holiday (homecoming trip ver.)

November 27, 2008

I look like superstar when posing like this

There was joy and sorrow as the very last of the final examination is over. the exam is extremely hard to swallow and the holiday may give people time to forget it.

Holiday is not complete without homecoming. My hometown is a six hours’ away from my university using land transport. Usually i use express bus or coach not only because it is relatively less expensive, but it also allows me to have a nice sightseeing. The road to my hometown passes through villages and most of them are very unique.

This time i’m quite rushed to go home as i planned to avoid crappy bus service. Journeys by better buses are not that often. On that day, the cab i reserved earlier also arrived earlier than expected, ie 15 minutes to fetch me to the bus terminal. That time, i just finished taking shower after moving lots of stuff off my hostel room. So what to do, i quickly rushed; outfit myself, styled my hair in less than one minute (my new world record!) and with my belongings (readily packed) rushed towards the nice uncle waiting for me.

The cab was lightning fast. It reached the bus terminal in 15 minutes while usual trips may take half and hour. This driver is very skilled. I am able to make it to the bus i wanted as i arrived earlier, and board it without problem.

During the trip, the bus usually stops at a rest center. At the center there’s a small diner and place for people to sell local products such as fruits and vegetables. This time i’m lucky because it’s fruit season. Rambutan, durian, corn and many more fruits are sold. The seller are very friendly!

At the rest point i went to the toilet. To my surprise, i just realized forgot to zip my pants since i depart from university! No wonder today the taxi driver, the ticket booth attendant, the bus driver and the auntie selling the fruit look so friendly and give warm smiles!
