ICoLIS 2010 -due posting..

My goodness!!...i jst noticed tht i still have draft post which i havent complete and post it on my blog. below is my draft which i did & saved as of 26th of Nov, 2011 (almost 3 months ago!!).
anyway, i jst posted the draft without any editing and add up on the last part with few photos. u might find this post a lil bit boring...so..here it goes! ;)

--------------------- start here----

Last posting i promised to update my blog with mini report of my experience attending the ICoLIS 2010...unfortunately i delayed it till today which is 2 weeks after! delaying things! it is sooooo ME! huhuh my bad! memang dh rasa melambatkan or melekakan pekerjaan adalah sinonim sgt dgn diriku...MasyaAllah...x tau dh aper nk jadi dgn hamba Allah nih.
well actually the day after the conference i was really excited to do simple write up about what i felt & experienced during the 2-day input & info sharing, but each time whenever i get to be online, first thing that i will do is checking my facebook, twitter & 2 emails. once i get carried away with the so-called social site with most-number-of-users-globally, i tend to forget everything tht i had plan of the day!!!..well twitter is my most-update non related with my social activity feed...i simply use it as to keep updated with the current news on almost EVERYTHING!

anyhoww...am still trying to minimize my daily time on both of these tools! as my thesis deadline is jst around the corner! and i hv yet to submit ANY complete chapter to my sv! YA ALLAH...please give me strength to do this i the last minute! (yup, that's my style--> a-last-thrilled-minute-job).

ok, back to the ICoLIS2010...actually during the conference i have tweeted bout things happened but not in a details & reflection manner...jst as an update on who's presenting what & what's not..so if your searching for those tweets, use this hastag #IC0LIS2010. but i guess the highlight of the conference were more one Open Access Issue...which am personally not really into it in the big picture. but somehow interested with the issue where there are institutionals & professionals who still have restricted their mindset into this open access especially when it comes to THESES & DISSERTATION. " however, am glad tht i am one of UM students where they already have taken an initiatives to make selected theses & dissertation available online and downloaded via this link http://dspace.fsktm.um.edu.my/.

photos from the events by the organizer can be reached here.

and here is the link photo of me during the Q&A session on the last day of the event! :)

July - month of frustration

Been in hiatus (for blog only) about 3 months...maybe because facebooking...which it is consider as a micro-blogging tools as well...
...July is jst not my good month...:( -sigh- due to:
1- unable to reach my set target of submitting my completed thesis draft (5 chapters)
2- submitted only 2 chapters therefore cant apply for wave fees
3- hv to pay rm837 for ths sem (due to reason no 2)
4- still cant really get my thinking hat onto chapter 2 the literature review..
5- no photoshoot outing

anyway, to cheer me up...i reupload my lil girl pic which was taken last month. so here it goes..

Pelita

Am still struggling to do my Chapter 1 & 2 of my thesis.
Last week, i havent get myself back on the database. i really need person to help me with the database but cant afford to pay much for such job.(another 2000 plus biblios to clean up!)
feeling so depressed as have nothing much to achieve in my project. sometimes distracted by houseworks, but i think most of the time by those updates in twitter....(not to forget my facebook notification) because i felt guilty if i dont have at least an info about librarianship and information literacy a day(yes it is related with my thesis). but of course other updates that non-related with my thesis dragged myself to get to know deeper about it especially politics! :P dont worry am not a politic junkie! :D

today, i got this link to this video via one of twitters tht i follow cant remember his name, but i know he's one of Hujan's fan...and i search for the lyric as well.
so enjoy this and sing along with the lyric!


A.P.I- Pelita (Lagu Tema Hooperz)

A.P.I- Pelita(Lagu Tema Hooperz)
Verse_1
Tak pernah sesaat daku meragui
apa yang telah daku temui
slama ini,
Verse_2
Tak pernah sesaat daku menyesali,
apa yang telah aku nikmati,
apa ku alami,
slagi hayat di kandung badan,
Korus:
Takkan ku menyerah kalah,
walau mimpi ku musnah,
harapan ku hancur,
sayapku patah,
kan ku pancarkan cahaya,
seperti pelita ke srata dunia,
yang gelap gelita
sehingga hembusan nafas
yang terakhir.
Verse_3
tak pernah sesaat ku mencurigai,
apa yg telah aku kecapi,
stakat ini,
Verse_4
tiba saatnya kan ku tangisi,
pada yang pergi, takkan kembali
Kembali lagi,
ulang Korus.
Bridge:
Slagi jasadku belum terkubur!
Slagi tubuhku, belum ditimpa uzur!
pantang datuk nenek moyangku,
Berundur!
Ulang Korus x 2
Akan Ku Pancar Cahaya Seperti Pelita,
Ke Srata Dunia,
Seperti Cahaya…….

dissertation & fried fish

so far i havent start to draft my chapter 1. i already has list of point to be included but when i started to write something, my mind seems cant work at getting the words to be typed at Ms Word, hence i still stuck at the list of points. so i continue with importing the thousands of biblios from the online databases to endnote.

i tried to keep the motivation as high as i could by reading more about how to do thesis/dissertation...and i landed myself that this site, which i think quite informative for those who never done any thesis/dissertation writing. 'Writing The Thesis' by Mark C. Griffin, though most part of the article is about writing for PhD thesis, i think it is still relevant for master thesis...one part i like most is about writing a draft, where the author included another reading material for reference:

Joe Wolfe (How to Write a Ph.D. Thesis) offers the following observations in regard to the editorial process:
"As you write your thesis, your scientific writing is almost certain to improve. Even for native speakers of English who write very well in other styles, one notices an enormous improvement in the first drafts from the first to the last chapter written. The process of writing the thesis is like a course in scientific writing, and in that sense each chapter is like an assignment in which you are taught, but not assessed. Remember, only the final draft is assessed: the more comments your adviser adds to first or second draft, the better."

well, that's about my study. on the other side of my world of course most of it about my daughter who's have lots of questions playing around her mind asking for answers (and of course her mom would be the first person to know what the question is..). last night when we had dinner which one of the meal was fried fish, mya asked me this one simple question:

mya: ma, why is the fish died?
(refering to the helplessly but eatable fried fish on the plate which i was eating not her)
me: because the fish was no longer in the sea water, it cannot live elsewhere than sea...(my mind was equip with the taxanomy of the fish that breath using its gills etc..and hoping there's no 'why' question following the answer)
mya: NO! you're wrong! it is because you already FRIED the FISH!
me: ~almost choked on fish that i was eating!~ and therefore CASE closed!

Sal's engagement @ Sg Buloh

I supposed to blog this month ago! but btw, there's nothing such 'too late' so, here goes the story.

i was 'hired' by Sal as her photographer of the day. can consider this as my first engagement photoshoot assignment. it was her big day even though it was celebrated as simple as she planned. but we really had fun that day as most of us gathering except for nanim! - it's ur lose nanim! :P

me & Emi was arrived bit late, and by the time we reached sal's house, sara - the makeup artist was there already doing her task - aper lagi make up la...:P. 10 mins after, nad was there with her 2 lil sisters...and she started her setting up for hantaran right away....tht time was about 12.15pm..if im not mistaken laa...

seriously i felt quite unclear of what i need to shoot...but luckily with friends like emi & nad..they gave some ideas on what i should capture on other than the subject herself (Sal, of course). anyway, here some of my fav photos which i uploaded in my facebook:


original compo - using 50mm lense
cropped & minor edited using picnik.com

the ladies - from left Sara (make up), Nad (Hantaran), Sal (the lady boss), me (photo) & Emi (advisor?)
