The permanent resident of computer lab is speaking...

So far I'm survive without personal laptop...
So, what comes into me? What am I suppose to do as my bed time story?
No more online manga... No more youtube videos... No more facebook stalking...

I came back to original me.. When the laptop is not my dearest best friend...
A novel...
I'm reading a few chapters of story books that has been on my bedside table for months...

I have no problem writing my thesis in computer lab.. I have all the material with me in my external HDD and also I always back-up my data on Mizzou's student online space.. So, I'm good with my thesis.. Remember guys.. Always back-up! ;-)

The only problem is I have to go to school... Cannot do work at home... Kena jadi lebih rajin dari biasa.. My schedule become:

watch TV
prepare breakfast and lunch or brunch

biking to school - Library

8p.m - 12 a.m:

after midnight:
read novels
watch TV

That's my routine normally... ;-) the time always varies except for the gym time.. it's the same everytime.. :)

ps: my apartment very close to school okie...

We'll be together again...

Evanescence - Together Again

Never thought that I'd be leaving you today
So alone and wondering why I feel this way
So wide the world
Can love remember how to get me home to you

We'll be together again
All just a dream in the end
We'll be together again

So many fears were swimming around and around in my mind
Who would have dreamed the secrets we would find

I've found a world where love and dreams and darkness all collide
Maybe this time we can leave our broken world behind

We'll be together again
All just a dream in the end

Single 2010 dari Evanescence... Lagu ini ditujukan kepada keluarga dan kawan2 di Malaysia... hehehe..

ps: this is my warming up session before start writing my thesis... ;-)

The good :-) and the bad :-( news....

The gap between these two things is just a few hours... So, right now.. I have a mix feeling.. :s

First, the good news...
Yesterday... Finally it's time for me to do the experiment at the cyclotron facility... All my calculation, laboratory experiment is being prepared for this... I'm excited and nervous (a bit) at the same time.. What I'm gonna do if it doesn't works? Then.. when the moment of truth came... YAY!!! It's working.. and it is as I predicted... My advisor suddenly said... "oh, that's mean the calculation is correct".. I'm like.. What??? (but still happy la).. Did he didn't had a confident in me??? huh... c-mon, I'm 100% sure my theory and calculation is correct.. if something going wrong.. is the machine's fault.. :P hehehe... So, I did had a good day.. A very good day indeed...

Here come the bad news... Now I think, maybe it is not good to be too happy.. coz then the bad thing will happen.. :(((

Because I'm so happy... I give myself a break... I play the whole day (play means not doing my thesis - recently always stay in lib or lab till midnight.. huhuhu) and become energetic and can't sleep.. Before sleep, as usual.. surfing the internet and read manga (reading japanese comic is my daily xtvt here).. Suddenly, my laptop go green... the vertical bright green lines appeared and then hang... I restart.. and dang! my laptop monitor color look like being put in the blender... everything mixed together... The monitor have a vertical green background.. ala the matrix.. and then it's hang again.. I cannot use high resolution.. only can be open in safe mode environment.. I immediately back-up all my important data by guessing where certain button was.. because my screen is like being put in watercolor... I did back-up everything... But I'm a bit deepressed with this situation... Right now, I gave the laptop to my friend so he will see if he can help me.. Most probably, the problem is the video card... I won't buy sony again... This is my 1st Sony laptop and I only used it for 2 years... Not enough time to give me problems... Furthermore.. It's VAIO! I bought it because I thought it worth my freaking money!!!

Right now, I'm using my friend's old laptop if I need to do something important.. But I really need my laptop.. EVERYTHING is there.. huhuhu... For time being... I will be a permanent resident of computer lab.. my friend's laptop doesn't has word 2007... and it's slow... But I'm thankful for having it...

Ok.. let's talk about WC 2010

Sana sini orang sembang pasal world cup 2010... Aku yang tengah sibuk tulis thesis ni pun sebenarnya tak ketinggalan.. hehehe.. sebabnya aku mmg minat bola. :p (hehe) So, cam tak logik la plak tak tengok... haritu NBA finals boleh follow takkan tak follow WC plak kan.. well, for ur guys info.. NBA finals (basketball) ada 7 games woo... this year Lakers Vs Celtics... ala Kobe Bryant... kenal? tak kenal takpe.. hehe...

Anyway.. Since I "heart" Messi.. Aku mesti la support Argentina kan... and since I "heart" Barca.. Aku secara automatic support Spain.. I bet you guys.. half of Spain's international is Barca players... And since I'm here in USA.. Secara automatic juga aku support team USA.. :-D

Yay! Argentina won all games... Messi blom score lagi.. but his magic is there.. I'm waiting for him to outshine everybody ;-)... (ps: Messi (10) :p)

Spain play like Barca... seriously... actacking football? beautiful football? great players.. hehe.. (ps: barca: Xavi (8) Villa (7) Pique (3) not in picha: Iniesta (6) Puyol (5) Pedro (18) Valdes (12) and all of them except Valdes had played on the group stage ;-))

Just now I'm screaming so happy/relieve/excited when Donovan scored.. Seriously.. they deserved it! And I really wish that England lost!(I'm sorry England's fans... ) But well, they go through as well... And at the end of Donovan's interview today, he said.. "Hi Bianca!" Sooooo sweeeet ~~~{@ (ps: Donovan (10) )

Anyway, I really think that USA team is not good.. (so-so only) huhuhu.. how they won group C is a mystery.. RO16.. that is as far they can go.. imho.. :p Some of my friends here really don't like team USA.. because they are so 'proud'.. Well.. it's their country and their TV.. What do you expect right? Do you know how many replay of USA goal on espn??? hehe.. and the "UnStopppAble" quote.. LOL... but again... it's their nation.. it is so much better than a boo from your own fans (remember England vs Algeria game?) of course I'm talking about England... And how Rooney supposely better than Messi? urghhh.. cannot stand England...

Ok.. Now, I'm back to thesis writing.. ;-)

Field Of Innocence

"Field Of Innocence" - Evanescence

I still remember the world
From the eyes of a child
Slowly those feelings
Were clouded by what I know now

Where has my heart gone
An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun
Always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

Where has my heart gone
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything

[Latin hymn:]
Iesu, Rex admirabilis
Et triumphator nobilis,
Dulcedo ineffabilis,
Totus desiderabilis.

Where has my heart gone
An uneven trade for the real world
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything
Oh, Where

Where has my heart gone
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
Oh I... I want to go back to
Believing in everything

I still remember.

Suddenly terasa nak attached lagu ni... I like this song.. the melody and the lyric..
Anyway, I chose this youtube file as a reminder of the anime that I'm going to watch after I'm done with my thesis... Cannot wait..

So far, my writing going on OK level.. I think I can meet the dateline... (harus tu.. oppss bukan harus tapi wajib... hehe) The experiment is in the final stage... Hopefully everything going to be OK... My life here is just the same as usual... My diet plan.. well, it has progress but I don't know if I can reach the target.. I hope I can but somehow I'm a bit frustrated now.. Seriously, sometimes I feel bored with it.. but well, let see guys...

Biking xtvt...

It's summer!

Day time is long.. night start almost at 9pm...
Since day become longer.. day time xtvt also become longer.. and seriously, I don't know how to prevent my skin from getting darker and darker... I tried sunblock cream, but apparently my face is sensitive to sunblock :( my face became very dry and itchy.. huhuhu.. Now, I'm just using normal moisturizer with spf 15... I don't know more discovery, it seems that my face only accept cream face from clinique product now..

Back to topic... My main xtvt here is biking (apart from doing research la)

The reason is, gym close earlier... the shuttle to my lab is not on service in summer, I got to bike there.. seriously, the hill is killing me... and my gang here like to bike... ;-)

Here some pics..

At the lake close to katy trail next to my apartment area

You need 1929.6 calories per day to maintain your current weight without exercise.

You need 1840.3 calories per day to reach your goal weight slowly and maintain that weight without exercise.

If you reduce your current caloric intake to 1429.6 calories per day you will lose one pound per week without exercise.

If you increase your current caloric intake to 2429.6 calories per day, you will gain one pound per week.

Exercise and Calorie Needs

If you exercise for 30 minutes each day, you may increase your caloric intake to 2143.6 calories per day and still maintain your current weight.

If you exercise for 60 minutes each day, you may increase your caloric intake to 2411 calories per day to maintain your current weight.

If you exercise for 30 minutes each day, you will be able to reach your goal weight with 2043.5 calories per day.
