    Admin Updated on March 15th, 2010 ( 4,885 views ) 2 comments

    Teja (Jaya Carnival so called [intlink id="1152" type="post"]Temasya Jaya[/intlink]) week 2 shown two major events that is Futsal Teja and Battle of The Band. In this Battle of The Band, BitterSweet an independence band was invited to perform in this event. Before I go further about Bittersweet and Battle of The Band, lets see a bit about Futsal Teja.

    In my opinion Futsal Teja was something different than other futsal tournament since they were using Rugby grouping style. Usually, only strong teams can maintain in the tournament and go through the final. However, this is different in Futsal Teja. Every team have high chance to proceed in the game by dividing the prizes into Cup, Plate, Bowl, and Spoon categories. If a team got a bad ranking in grouping, they do not need to worry because they can still compete in other categories. Yeah, this is what most football players need. Enjoyment in playing futsal. The prizes is second. Futsal Teja is not something that would Read the rest of this entry »

    If you use wordpress theme, usually there are a place for you to put widgets. Somehow, there is a time when you want to insert something (ex: banner) at other area than the widget. You might find this quite difficult to do especially if you do not have enough skill in CSS and PHP language.

    In this case, you can try to install a Mozilla Firefox addon called Firebug to help you inspect a blog theme. After inspecting a theme, you will have an idea where to put the desired coding for the banner.

    Admin Updated on March 10th, 2010 ( 6,661 views ) 4 comments

    WUS is one of the university requirement subject in USM. WUS is a subject that teach students about entrepreneurship. One of the task that need to be fulfill by students who take this subject is to open their own business and then make complete report about it. Despite that, food and drink business are not allowed.

    Compare to last year and two years before, expo for WUS 2010 (3 Mac) was not held around Lecture Hall anymore but was held at Lembaran Cafe. I am sure the idea to choose Lembaran Cafe as expo base is a good idea since there are a lot of people around Lembaran Cafe than Lecture Hall.

    Okay, firstly lets see the award for The Most Attractive Booth. There it is. Looks simple but the birds origami sure make Read the rest of this entry »

    Have you heard about Amazon? Amazon started by selling books at small scale by using internet as the medium and now Amazon is already a big name in virtual world. Amazon can be said as an online bookstore that can be trusted.

    That’s for the international online bookstore. To buy from Amazon, you need to pay in USD and it might takes weeks before your order arrive. So, before you buy in Amazon, I recommend you to check out a few online bookstores that available in Malaysia first. Not only the price is cheaper (less courier tax), I am sure the books that you ordered will be arrived within a week. Read the rest of this entry »

  • Sony Ericsson K770i

    Admin Updated on March 5th, 2010 ( 41,753 views ) 4 comments

    Due to the need of some original pictures in this blog, I had bought a Sony Ericsson K770i mobile phone. Before this I only use VGA mobile pone (Motorola V36) because I don’t see a need to have a mobile phone with better camera performance.

    At Mac 2010, you can get K770i for not more than RM500. But to get the 5MP original C901, the cost is not less than RM780 (at Mac 2010). Although the prices is much higher than K770i, I doubt that the camera performance will be a lot better. On the other hand, no matter how big the resolution is, at last I will convert it to 500 pixels at most (for blog post). That’s why I choose K770i, the 3.2MP camera already make me satisfied.

    That’s the first rule for choosing mobile phone. Know your needs and budget.

  • Career Fair 2010

    Admin Updated on March 4th, 2010 ( 9,297 views ) 1 comment

    Career Fair 2010 (old name was Ekspen) is held in USM Seri Ampangan (Engineering Campus) from 2 to 3 Mac. This Career Fair is meant to final year students so that they can find related companies to be interviewed for job. Gold sponsor for this event is Shell, the giant company in oil industry. Even on the Career Fair committee members’ shirt has Shell’s logo. Wonder how much they sponsored this event.

    In contrast to Career Fair, there is mini program for secondary school students called FEC. This program is meant to open the student eyes about universities education and courses offer. I think this mini program is very useful so that students will choose course according to their interest.

    So, what’s new in this year Career Fair? To me, 2010 Career Fair looks a little like museum. Why I said so? Read the rest of this entry »
