As the title goes, this post is randomly from my experience this past few weeks ;D

Situation 1 :

This is definitely the shopping season as Hari Raya is only days away. As usual, the whole family will go to the shopping mall and this causes the Situation 1 to happen : Kids screaming, wailing and rolling on the floor crying =.= It is super annoying to me (now I just look like I hate em) Well,I do like kids, but not annoying ones. I mean, I know those kids are feeling stuffy as well and they might be tired and hungry, I don’t blame them, but I blame the parents. The parents please control your child! ni tak, lagi yang parents nye duk try2 baju and simply ignores the poor kid =.= come on lahh. Especially in enclosed shops, the noise is doubled.

Alhamdulillah Ramadan, kena banyak bersabar….*inhale exhale*

Situation 2 :

Couple wearing couple tees everywhere! Okay this one for me is quite funny. You know what, I think the only ones that feel oh so romantic and cute and sweet wearing same clothes are just the couple themselves.haha. Rasa macam nak cakap “ alololololo,suweet sgt la tuuw?” hahaha. Well,maybe it’s just me . Who knows you might feel the same as those couples kan?hahah. The most funny was the Superman tshirt couple. I had to look away in order not to offend them. Terasa pulak nanti, padahal  tade pape punn XD
this is the exact shirt i was talking about- i added the red lines to make it similar though. :D

Situation 3 :

Fill ALL the parking lots! Gahhh,if you’re 5 mins late,no, 1 min late you can never find a parking spot. okay,over. Takdelah tak jumpa tapi lama gak lah, dlm sejam je.huuu. That day I went to Alam Sentral, Shah Alam. Seriously, it’s like there’s no hope at all to find a parking space. Pusing punya pusing kitorang lalu lah tepi handicapped punya area. Guess what, nobody took advantage of that empty space. They just drove by. Faith in humanity restored! 

Memang masa tu kosong, tapi cuba bayangkan if 6.5 mins later a handicapped wants to park there. Tak ke dah teraniaya orang tu. Nampak kecil je action tu tapi besar akibatnya.

Situation 4 :

The smell of food that makes your stomach go “gurrrgurrrrkrukkkkrukkk” T.T What else can I say? I know you feel me,bro.huhu. Hey, that day I was listening to Hijjaz - Sifat Mahmudah. And a few of the lines are about sabar. It goes like this : Ujian yang menimpa, sakit dirasa. Tapi dapat ditahan perasaannya, hanya bermain di dalam sahaja, di luar tidak nampak terang nyata. That made me think. I think this is why people always remind us not to say “I’m hungryyyyy T^T” or anything related. It’s about having the patience. If we’re patient with this hunger test, we won’t announce it to the whole world. We contain it in our heart and stomach. You get me?

Salam Ramadan to all. May this Ramadan be better than the last. :)

Hm, sorry i forgot to mention what AAACU is. =.=

AAACU - Asian Association of Agricultural College and Universities .

The vision:
Human resource development for sustainable agriculture in Asia to contribute to human welfare, dignity and quality of rural life

The objectives : 
-To facilitate international cooperation among the member institutions to enhance the effectiveness of programs in agricultural education, research and extension services;

-To share experiences and information regarding new development in agricultural education and research through conferences, seminars, newsletters, website, etc.;

- To represent the agricultural education systems in Asia to the regional and global organizations and governments in Asia.

Those who attended were the representatives of their Universities which are the member of AAACU. 
They came during their summer break for a 10 days stay in Malaysia. Knowledge was passed on through lectures and field trips. 

That's the AAACU Summer Programme 2013. :D
It was awesome.

AAACU - say whut?

"Our differences can make our life wonderful or horrible? Depends on the mind of the person."

Look at the title. That was my reaction when I first heard about this programme. It sounds like someone sneezing, "aaacu!" "god bless you" . =.= Plus, I found out that this programme eats up 2 weeks of my semester break!Whut?? I thought I was gonna have a bad time. Guess I was wrong. So wrong. :)

Well, I'm not gonna scribble every-single-tiny-thing that happened,just the important parts.

Enough said on the first time meeting them, I was REALLY awkward and trying my best to converse with the international students. Oh yea, they were from Korea, Japan, Philippines, Thailand and Guam. I thought these 2 weeks are going to be long and my forever alone time.

The next day onwards, we started our ice breaking session and went out for field trips. As days passed by, we learn a lot from each other. There are certain parts of ourselves that are different; our religion, beliefs, the way we eat, dress, respect and even study.
To some, these difference will create a huge gap, but it actually build a bridge between us.

When more questions are asked and answered, we started to learn and understand the different cultures between us. This create mutual understanding and makes it easier for us to communicate. Personally, I think it's awesome having friends of different cultures. It opens your eyes to things you've never seen. And somehow, helps you to better understand yourselves.

All of us are created as an individual that are different from each other.That's what makes this world more interesting.

We use English as our language medium, but there are certain times when we're lost for words. Body language gets into action,yeah :D And it's fun trading our language, we learnt the basic conversation of all language. We get excited when they speak in Malay, they get excited when we speak in their language XD

One important thing that I gained is inspiration. I was really inspired by the knowledge they have on their countries' agriculture; development and history. It gives me more drive to really learn on being the greatest horticulturist ever lived! XD  Also, we learnt how this world is affected by our actions in grasping the title of developed country. One thing for sure, we should stop pointing fingers and start thinking and putting ideas into action to save the mother nature.

Overall, it was a fun, knowledgeable, memorable and exciting experience for me.

Ouh yeah,for field trips, we went to lots of places like UPM Farm, UPM Equestrian Centre, Floria Putrajaya (3 times.haha), Alamanda,Putrajaya(movie day out!), UPM food service lab (we cooked!), Hatchery Farm in Puchong, UPM forest reserve (SISFEC), Batu Caves, KLCC Tower - Up to the bridge and 86th floor O_O, Central Market, Malacca City Centre, UPM Agriculture Park - herbs farm and mushroom house, Homestay in Kg Sg. Sireh, Firefly Farm in Kg Kuantan, The Mines(bowling) and back to UPM.

During the homestay, I experienced a lot of my first time : homestaying with a foster family, walking on Palung at thepaddy field, fishing with a bamboo(traditional way), catching eels with my two BARE HANDS, playing the traditional Gasing, riding an old bike(the heavy one) in the middle of sugarcane field and fell off =.= , batik painting and origami using coconut leaves.

It was really tiring yet enjoyable. I loved every single second of it. Still loving it :D

the happy faces of AAACU participants <3
