Out of ideas of what to cook for dinner? Dining alone? Salad makes an awesome, simple meal for one, or side dish for two or more!

Fifi gets a haircut!

These pics were taken way back in 2007. Went thru my stash of pics and saw these...found them quite cute and funny so I'm gonna post it here ;P

Was one of those days at home with nothing better to do, when I noticed aunt was giving Fifi a haircut. Judging by the growly sounds the furball was making, she wasn't too pleased with it...kekeke..

Business Idea and Business Plan Competition

by Volvoxx On September 24, 2009 10:17 PM 0 comments
Usually, CyberP would require students to sell stuff (usually food) for about a week, and your marks would be based on your profit and what not...but for this year, FBL students are required to write a business plan instead. Since CyberP is not offered to FET this sem, I decided to join FBL students instead.

We started the whole business plan not expecting anything...just needed to do it as a part of our coursework (cuz in CyberP, its all about coursework. No midterm, no finals)...mana tau end up top 10, and winning the whole damn thing. Damn it was good.

Home Cooked

I'm just gonna post pics of food I cook for now....

...cuz I'm too lazy to write long long bout anything else.

...that. And I forgot to take any pictures of the BBQ we had last another day...maybe I'll throw in some marinate recipes along too.'s some stuff I've been cooking lately. Of course, its not western everyday. Its just that I pay a little more attention to presentation for the western-type dishes. Chinese dishes just cook, serve, nom,  *burp* ...  :9

Seriously now. Stop it. It's getting really really annoying. And childish (ok wait I are one.)

Catching up

So I got lazy...and busy. Haven't posted anything since a week ago :P ...Was supposed to post something bout the GACC thought sharing thing, but ended up just dumping pics to Khurshid and he did the job instead.. :P ...

To make up for the lack of pic in this post...I'm gonna post some OOT pic of some Korean meal we had last week when Shindee was around. Been ages since I went to Tok Su Gong..and its as good as ever.

The usual side-dishes. Lovely variation.

I dunno wat to call this. Taste a bit like steamed eggs, but cooked in earthernware.

BBQ Pork Ribs

The delicious kimchi soup with sausages and luncheon meat and noodles. 
Extremely overpriced. I made this once. Cost less than RM15.

Happy and stuffed =3 ...we were all looking like dat.

That would be Shindee, interpreting the Korean news for us. .../facepalm

So anyways...all the food aside (its making me hungry). What was I busy with? My FYP report ler. Damn thing...40+pages of random ramblings..and another 40 pages just codes. Codes look horrible in Times New Roman. Period. Was gonna shrink them to size 6 or 7, shrink the paragraph spacing, then use some sans-serif fonts like Calibri or sumthing that looks nicer in a pile of junk codes...but noooo...Appendices have to be in Times New Roman, Size 10. =.= Looks horrible. Anyways...that's done. All that's left is the presentation, final report....also my 1 more assignment..then finals. Ugh. Ah least I get to breath for awhile now.

What else have I been up to? I mentioned last week, I had to go beach training at Tanjung Bidara today, with the taekwondo club and cocu students. Waking up was surprisingly easy, well no thanks to my stupidly abnormal sleeping habit these days (I sleep twice a day now. 3-4 hours each. I wake up at 6-7am and I cant I stay up...then I get all sleepy and drowsy at noon.) ....having your body practically coated in sand is....unpleasant. Not being able to just jump into the water after the training was kinda disappointing (sir said, "Next time la we play water" WHY!?)...50cents paid to shower after the training was probably the best 50cents I've ever spent. The scenery was great....shame I dare not bring my cam since I wasn't gonna be watching my bag all the time. The training was great tho. Wish I had a better partner.

Can't wait for tmr (errr..tonight). GACC09's appreciation buffet dinner at Seoul Garden. Ahhhhh the last time I went there was GACC08's appreciation..was it? Hahaha! Free meal, is awesome as always.

Unexpected turn of events...sorta.

I groaned and whined that I had to wake up early Saturday morning (had to wake up early last week cuz we went KL - end up didn't sleep, had to wake up early today for CyberP Business Plan competition presentation - end up didn't sleep either, have to wake up early next Saturday for TKD beach gimme back my saturdays!)...meh that the lecturer's making us attend SIFE and her event by enforcing a 80% group member attendance to secure 10 points for her subject....never knowing that my group was participating for the competition. I thought the competition was 'whoever who wanna join, can join' thing...and not by selection of top 10 business proposals submitted. We were only told that we were in contention like...the day before the event? So the core members of my team quickly whipped out a simple presentation and presented our product today.

The last group presenting. There was about 200-300 audience
thanks to my lecturer forcing us all to go for the sake of coursework points.. :P

When the competition began, I thought that it'd be rather tough competition amongst all of us since other groups have rather refreshing idea too...and their presentation was quite good too....but some group's idea was plain...boring. It's not new...its even already existing in Malaysia so I dunno why they even qualify...w/e la...

Soon it was our turn to present our product and proposal/presentation....

...and the judges loved it!

From the questions they asked us during the Q&A question, as well as the way they had asked it (they weren't just asking questions just for the sake of 'tembak'-ing our was seen with other teams)....really showed that they had genuine interest in our product and that it actually had lotsa potentials in their eyes. It was then that I was more convinced that...we can do it after all!

Soon all 7 consolation prizes were given out. 3 more were given to creative ideas by other students who did not make it to the top 10 (prolly proposal not as detailed or sumthing)...and so it was left with the final 3. At this point, its for sure that we'll each walk back with at LEAST RM50 in hand. When they announced the 3rd place, and it wasn't us...we all went "Yes!" ...damn jahat rite? XD

When it was finally time to announce first place....we were all damn jumpy and excited cuz somehow we knew it could just be us. *drumrolls* (no really....the students drummed the tables)...and my lecturer went "You remember the group who brought a little small bottle for their presentation?" ...and we just started cheering loudly. omg omg omg we really did win RM1000. We laughed at our friend cuz he had already began calculating how much each of us would get if we won RM1000/700/500 before the event even began...cuz there was 9 of So we decided to give RM100 each, presenters get more (which I totally don't mind cuz...we didn't do a thing for the presentation).

"Shit la give us this damn big thing for wat? Wat're we gonna do with it la?"
"Sleep on it la...jadi tikar"

So there. It all began with me registering for CyberP under FBL's group...and registering late/skipping first week which means...I didn't have a group till week 2....and these fellas approached me and another girl (cuz they only had 4 in a group then) to join them.....and somehow we just worked well together...eventho I never knew them. Our team won fastest team to finish the Entrepreneur boardgame-thingy we were forced to play...and won the business plan competition. Gotta admire the enthusiasm of my fellow junior groupmates la cuz they rock! I'm so lucky to be a part of awesome groups for both my CyberP and Moral....eventho they're all juniors and are people whom I barely know before I joined them. Glad that I had been able to mix well with them too. :)

There's only 2..very bad quality pics in this post cuz...I didn't bother to pack in my camera...and other pics are with my groupmates.

We had GACC's thought sharing thingy later that I ended up in my semi-formal attire from 8am till..12midnight that day. Urk >.< ...I'll save that for another post another day. Gotta get back to my FYP report for now...since I didn't have a chance to work on it at all today :P

FYP - Almost....

by Volvoxx On September 4, 2009 7:21 AM 0 comments
I'm finally done with the software part of my FYP. Compiling, assembling loose codes, fixing and standardizing links...KAUTIM! 

Yey! to finish up the damn report and do my slides....


Sorry I'm not gonna give out the link to the application just yet. Scared some things might screw up or what not...but here's a screenshot of roughly how the application is like. No flash no graphics la... :P 

Of course...all my so called 'supervisees'...are either my alter-egos, my bf, or my sister (lol kena jadi mangsa XD)

Basically, it's a facebook application that enables students to keep their supervisors updated on their FYP progress. Supervisors can also post announcements as well as update students on the dateline of report submission/presentation and etc. Pretty simple once you get over the application structure, and figure out how to use facebook to build the application (so so stupid at first).

It was fun working on it...but I'm glad to get it off my mind....even if its just the software part XP
