Item For Sales
Hi, i'm leaving Malaysia Campus soon, so there's stuff i wanna let go off.

Item 1: Fuji Xerox 203A b/w lazer printer

Condition: Fully working, no dent or scratch wat so ever, but not like anyone would care!
Purchased date: august 07
Usage: less than 10 times usage. printed less than 200 pages. one carton of ink could print
2000 pages (10% used)
Price: Rm 80
Evaluation of value: Rm 0.04 per page printed. Printing service at Tiscra cost Rm 0.07 per page.
You do the math. (basically the printer is free!)

I'm guessing that this printer would sell out really fast, so get in contact with me as soon as you decide.

Condition: normal wear n tear, nothing important, we just need the weight right? (plastic-coated)
Usage: Less than a year
Price: Rm 30 per pair.
description:
Evaluation of value: instead of grabbing the rusted dumbbells in the sports complex with tonnes of other
sweating, huge sized guys, you could work out in your room, while watching series, why not ?


Item 3: Ikea study lamp
Condition: working perfectly, classy white look, good for students who studies. clearly not me. or maybe
for my reason, to pimp my room!

Top Malaysian Film Stars in one of the World's Top Leading University, UNMC

12:56 PM
Written by Wahieda Bahtiar
Pictures by Dini Nur Farhana & Zafirah Zakaria


It has been 5 days since the film crew camping in our campus. I've interviewed some of the actors and actresses whom are Raja Farah, Lisa Surihani and Zoey . According to them, this film was stammed from a famous novel entitled 'Lagenda Budak Setan' by one of the popular Malaysian novelist, Ahadiat Akasyah.

The film was shot in the Nottingham University for about 6 days until this Saturday. I've been informed that after the crew finished their shooting here, the crew will continue their filming at the next location which is the legendary island in northern part of peninsular Malaysia, Langkawi Island for another two weeks.

So guys, lets wait patiently for the movie to be finished filming before it is on the screen of the cinema. And don’t forget to watch it in the nearest cinema early next year.

Additional information about the film

Title : Romance (working title. maybe it will be change after the editing process)
General synopsis : It is a film about naughty boys during their teenage life.
Genre : Romance (I think..)
Director : Sharad Sharan
Starring : Farid Kamil, Nubhan AF, Zoey, Que Haidar, Nabil (new comer), Lisa Surihani, Raja Farah, Rozita Che Wan etc
Important info : 2nd debut (if I’m not mistaken) of UNIM to the entertainment world

Exam Blues

3:53 AM
“SILENCE IS GOLDEN”
“NOISE POLUTION MAY BE LETHAL”


Original : firefly
edited by : uncle


its fun when you can hang out like this, but what if your laughter disturbs others?


When you go to the SA to study and you end up listening to the sound of clashing pool balls, laughter, screams and high pitched shrieks, you tend to give up on your studies. By doing so, you decide to go online for just a few minutes when your gut tells you that you need to be more focused on your studies. You stood up, dragged that lousy ass of yours and walk that seriously long pathway to the library.

Upon arrival at the library you are greeted with loud whisperings, those whispers seemed to be as if they were discussing world matters with each other, then you start pondering, why are whispers so loud that it can be categorized as talking out aloud. And the moment you put that heavy ass of yours, you hear another controlled laughter, as if it can’t be heard throughout the whole room. You turned your head and saw no one laughing, maybe it was just you, your mind is playing tricks on you, only now you regretted sleeping late last night just to cover that stupid chapter about noise filtering.

With the perfectly air-conditioned room already starting to make an impact on your body, you start to sneeze and your hands are cold and you are shivering. You start wondering, why the heck is the library this cold, you then look around and everyone seems to be quite warm, maybe it was the skirt that you wore, or maybe that jacket was a bit too thin. You head out to the foyer and looked at your watched and realize that the library’s going to close in 10minits. You quickly pack your bags and went back to SA only to again, receive the same amount of noise you received hours ago.

Knowing all efforts to study in the SA will succumb to a failure, you begin heading to your room thinking about those chapters which might be of importance and of those which you have not covered. And while walking you bumped into a friend who knocks you off you focus (day dream). Started talking and walking and soon enough you arrive in front of your door. All the effort for the day earned you a well deserved nap.

BOOM!!! You could hear some war movie being played and from the sound of it, it’s titanic (2) being sunk. That alone made you wake up, getting cranky upon being forced to get up, you rush to the bathroom for a taste of hot water to freshen up the body and came up squeaky clean and fully refreshed. An after dressing up, you decide to start studying for the paper, two days from now.

Then, BOOM another bomb hits the floor, this time; maybe Kate Hudson was molesting Leonardo De Caprio or something. And you go “SHUT THE F**K UP!!!!!!” and so came a nervous breakdown. The exam stress can do a lot of things to you, especially if you’re a scholarship student, having had to score at least a 60% just to maintain that scholarship, you tend to bury your face in the book whenever there is time (during the exam period).

I wish you all good luck for the exams and I seriously hope you guys will strive to the maximum in the effort to get good grades. Remember to have fun too, but not to the point that it will effect or offend others especially during this exam period.
Final words from me, I’ll soon be leaving this university due to the fact that I’m almost graduating, and to all of you who knows me personally, I would like to say thanks for the good times together and for you support (if you ever gave any) for me in upholding my life in this university. I will greatly miss you guys and hope to always be able to help out in this blog.

Swine Flu Information

11:32 AM
From Mr Paul

What is swine flu?
Swine flu is a group of influenza viruses that causes flu in pigs. Usually infections in humans are uncommon.
The current swine flu which is infecting people is a new strain of influenza A/H1N1. It is not certain how it developed. Its genetic makeup shows parts of human flu, avian (bird) flu and swine flu.

What are the symptoms?
Limited information is available at this stage. It appears that the early symptoms are similar to seasonal flu - cough, fever, sore throat, headache, runny nose, general fatigue and muscle pains. Vomiting and diarrhea have also been noted. Severe cases have progressed quickly (within 5 days) to pneumonia-like illness (shortness of breath and difficulty breathing).

Is this swine flu a severe illness?
It appears that the virus is capable of causing severe disease. However it is currently unknown how likely it is that those who get sick will suffer a severe illness.
Most cases in the United States and Canada to date have been mild. There have been no fatalities.
In Mexico there have been fatal cases, apparently in previously healthy young adults. The proportion of severe cases appears to be much higher than with regular seasonal flu.
Why the disease appears to be more severe in Mexico is unknown.

How is this swine flu spreading?
It is most likely spreading from person to person through infectious respiratory droplets (droplets generated when a person coughs, sneezes or talks.)

How can I prevent getting sick?
Observe good hygiene. Avoid people who are obviously sick. Be sure to wash your hands frequently. Avoid touching your face, and if you do, be sure your hands are clean.
What is the infectious period?
The infectious period for this strain is not yet known. According to the US CDC, infected people should be considered potentially contagious:
• one day before their symptoms start
• seven days after their symptoms start OR as long as they are still showing symptoms (whichever is longer)
Children, especially younger children, might potentially be contagious for longer periods.
What is the incubation period?
The incubation period is the time between exposure to the virus and people developing symptoms? The incubation period for this strain is not yet known.
With seasonal flu, people develop symptoms within about 4 days. However for this new strain of flu, the incubation period may be longer.
US CDC is currently advising people to monitor their health for 7 days after possible exposure.

Is there a vaccine?
There is no specific vaccine against this swine flu as yet. Regular seasonal flu vaccine is unlikely to provide protection against this strain. Nevertheless, those who have not had a seasonal flu vaccine should consider doing so.
As a general good health practice, people should make sure all their routine vaccinations are up-to-date. This includes pneumococcal vaccination for certain adults. This vaccine is usually recommended for all people over 65 years old and younger people with serious long-term health problems (heart disease, diabetes, alcoholism, COPD, emphysema, asthma, cancer treatment, HIV/AIDS).

Can swine flu be treated with antiviral medications?
Preliminary information indicates that the virus is sensitive to the newer antiviral medications oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza). It is resistant to the older medications amantadine and rimantidine.
All travelers (any destination)
People who have not had an annual flu vaccination should consider having one to prevent regular seasonal flu.
As a general good health practice, all travelers should:
• Maintain good personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently. Avoid touching your face.
• Avoid people who are obviously sick.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a mask or a tissue.
• Stay at home if you are unwell.
• Contact your health care provider if you or your children develop flu-like symptoms.
• Ensure their routine vaccinations are up-to-date. This includes pneumocococcal vaccination for certain adults: those over 65, people with serious long term health conditions and people whose immune systems are compromised due to transplants, cancer treatments, HIV/AIDS, etc.
If you are in an affected area, or have traveled to an affected area recently:
• Monitor your health
• If you develop symptoms, seek medical attention. Advise the healthcare facility that you have recently been in an area that has reported swine flu.
• Parents should take their young children with fever or influenza-like symptoms for prompt medical attention.
