Hello, everyone! We meet again in this blog! This week, we were given the task to write about 1 free topic and another guided topic, which went by the question, 'what would you do if you had all the power in the world?' But it looks like my friend Afiq had the topic first before me! Never fear, though... I still have some aces, or should I say topics, up my sleeve! So enough waiting... this week I'll be showing you all a sample of an essay. Not just any essay, it will be a guided essay! ;) Here's the questions for that essay:

[Start of questions.]
You have been nominated as a SIFE student ambassador for your university. So let us know:

1) What kind of contribution and efforts you have done for your team and SIFE?
2) What other contributions that you can offer if you are selected as the student ambassador?
[End of questions.]

Hence, here is a sample essay on how I answered those questions:

[Start of sample essay.]
Hello, my name is Nik Hisham bin Nik Ismail Azlan and I’m from the Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute of Chemical and Bioengineering Technology (UniKL MICET) SIFE team. I am currently one of the Program Managers of the team.

First of all, you have asked me what I have done for my university’s SIFE team. Let me be honest with SIFE Malaysia. I’m only in my second semester here and as you may have guessed, I am a new member. However, that does not mean my contribution is proportional with my fresh participation. As soon as I was accepted as a member of my university’s SIFE team, I was involved in the current Orang Asli project, where I was able to share my ideas like how to approach the orang asli and such, based from my experience. (I will explain more about my past experiences at the end of this essay, as I don’t want to digress.) I was also involved in the field trip to the orang asli’s village for both research and data collecting, and execution of projects. Recently, (near the end of the last semester, to be exact.) my university’s SIFE team organized ‘Techno Day’ which is similar to an ‘Open Day’, and was participated by the university’s students. It was successful and is now recognized by the university to be held annually. I was in charge of the organization and students’ participation. Now, as I have explained to you previously, I have been given task of succeeding and continuing the Orang Asli project and currently planning out everything we will be carrying out this semester with my newly elected committee.

For your next question, which is ‘what other possible contributions that I can give if elected a student ambassador’ is that, to put it simply, I can pretty much do almost everything and therefore contribute a lot of things. I don’t mean this in a prideful or boastful manner, but by personality, I like to try new things. I have done so many exciting things in my life, from jungle trekking alone to being a promoter for my friend’s uncle’s tuition services during the holidays, stuff that normal people wouldn’t even bother to do. To be honest, why I’m saying all these things instead of directly answering your question about ‘what I can contribute’ is because I can’t possibly imagine what I can contribute to SIFE Malaysia, as I’m not clear about what you people want at the moment! But be rest assured, I am prepared to be molded into anything, and I am prepared to contribute as much as SIFE Malaysia deems possible. I am willing to learn new things, and volunteer for anything that help makes this world a better place.

Which is why (in reference to my last sentence in the previous paragraph) I will now explain a bit about my past experience. I’m sorry, I know SIFE Malaysia didn’t ask for this part, but I’ll make sure it won’t be a waste of your time to read this. Since secondary school, I have been very interested in lending aid to people both inside and outside my community. I have dreamed to make the world a better place despite all the damage and misery that is being done. My recent highest participation in humanitarian aid (international level) is a humanitarian aid project held at Jogjakarta, Indonesia, which was done during my foundation study years. The project was called ‘FISH FOR LIFE 3’. Progressing on, that is how I came to join my university’s SIFE team. In the early days before my participation, I saw SIFE as an organization that helps people in many terms and ways, be it financially, educationally or physically. That is why I chose to join my university’s SIFE team. As time passes by, I learned that it also teaches me about business and economy, which is a big bonus for me, being a chemical engineering undergraduate. Nonetheless, it hasn’t deterred my motive of helping and lending aid to others. I really look forward to what I can contribute to the world on a larger scale and being a student ambassador for SIFE Malaysia would be a very good stepping stone.

Thank you very much.

If i could rule the world...i would..

if i could rule the world..i would... many things i want to do if i really have the power to rule the world...
both of good n bad idea have in my head right now...hehe..
but for sure i will rule the world only with the good things..
first of all...i will sweep away all the meaningless war,civil war or any kind of war from the surface of our beloved planet... EARTH!!
could you all imagine the world without war??
the world without conflict...
the world without blood spill..
the world without starving...
the world without disease cause from bio weapon..
the world without hatred...
the world full with love, full with kindness, full with care..

owh...if all of them can really exist in this world..
the korean will not be divided by two idealisme and will be known just as Korea not South Korea and North Korea like now..
and kids at Somalia may go to school and become a doctor..
and each youngsters at Palestine may have a laptop rather than carry an AK47 on their shoulder..
and also peoples at Afghanistan and Iraq can sleep well at night without worrying their house will be bomb by B21..

war did not bring any good to the world....the benefit is only goes for the one who start the war..but believe me..this kind of person is really a coward person..they will  ask their soldier go to the war zone and fight for themand tell them that they are fighting for a justice and them will sit at their table n eat luxurious dinner with their stingy corporate friends who sponsored the war. While their soldier are dying,hungy, and  have to kill or be killed just want to survive at the world's hell that been created by their animal like leader they toast a whiskey for every one of their soldier are killed..

what a nonsense scenario...really..if i have the power to rule the world..i will stop all the war, banned all the weapons and declare truce to all over the world... i will make this world become more discrimination, races hatred, starving, fear, and many more that make the world become weak...we are HUMAN..we are the CHOOSEN ONE to rule the least...we should behave to be like a true ruler..i will lead all the human to the new era where all the human are same..are equal..have the same right..and then..we will see the world that only exist in our dream become a reality in front of our own eyes..believe me..and world will become a heaven once more...hehe

My Aspirations for the Year 2011

Hello, everyone! Thank you for spending the time to come to this newly-formed blog. As you have read in the title, this blog is based on the ramblings of 2 technical communication students! Anyways, if you find this blog appealing or has the possibility to entertain you more in future, >XP feel free to follow us! Alright, time to keep on reading!

Somehow, I got the second task of my technical communication class, to blog about 'My Aspirations for the Year 2011'. (Serves me right for doing this late. Afiq is lucky, yaw! :P ) Yeah, sounds exciting, huh? I hope so, for your sake. Hahaha. Well, lets start off with the definition of 'aspiration'. Aspiration in context of what we will be talking about is:
  • a will to succeed
  • ambition: a cherished desire
But in other terms and context, aspiration could also mean:
  • a manner of articulation involving an audible release of breath
  • inhalation: the act of inhaling; the drawing in of air (or other gases) as in breathing
(source taken from

which we will not be talking about, since these definition is 'not in context' to what my tech. comm. lecturer wants us to discuss about. :P Also, just in case you all are still confused about what 'aspiration' is, to put it simply, it's hope or ambition. Still don't get it? Join my tech. comm. class. :PP

Thus, continuing on with the blog, what I aspire for this year, huh... I hope to improve my CGPA, or my exam results. I really hope to do well, and my concentration to achieve this goal to be unwavering. Therefore, to achieve that, I think I must:

I must 'WORK HARD & BE NICE TO PEOPLE'. :D Because even if we work hard, but are introverts and do not help other people who needs our help, then we'll be going nowhere. You can't gain success alone, and even if you do, your success will not hold any meaning since you won't be able to share it with other people. And that pretty much 'sucks', according to common language nowadays. (Please do not ask me the meaning of 'sucks' in this context, do your own research.) To put it simply, let us all work hard and be nice to people at the same time. I really want good exam results! I want to make everyone who knows me proud! My family, my friends, my financial sponsors... (not just MARA, you know. :P ) I will work really hard for it! Go, go, go NIK HISHAM! ROAAARRR! 4.0 for GPA this is semester is NOT IMPOSSIBLE!

But also learn to relax, ok? Please don't take it too seriously like this:

I think that's enough rambling for one post. My lecturer will be checking this post, you know. You're not the only one reading it. She says it should be 'not too short or too long'. :P So there. (It's not that I'm lazy or anything, but to be honest, I'm pretty stumped of ideas this morning. Probably because I haven't had my breakfast yet. :P I do have other hopes, but in the meantime, lets just stick to what we always hear about. :PP ) Thank you so much for your time. Till we meet again in the next post, stay tuned! :D

p/s: I don't know what my friend's, Afiq, aspiration is for this year. :P Ask him yourself. Be polite!

raise your hand if you don't know who is the man inside that picture!!!
i'm sure all of us know who is that...TUN DR MAHATHIR MOHAMAD..our forth prime minister and probably the greatest among the great prime minister that Malaysia had since the early 1957..

yeah maybe all know what he have done when he become a prime minister of Malaysia, even people at north pole know what he have achieve at his time.. but do you really know who is he long before that??? 

yup..most of us just know Tun Dr M as our prime minister but when be ask about him before he become a politician..most of us will said..ha???common answer rite.. now i will tell a little bit of him before he become a politician.he was born at his parents' home in a poor neigbourhood of Alor Setar, Kedah  on 20 December 1925. Tun Dr. Mahathir did his early and secondary education in his home town. In 1947, he gained admission into the King Edward VII College of Medicine in Singapore and graduated at 1953.

then he opened a private clinic at Kedah with name MAHA CLINIC and i believe this clinic is still open for public to get treatment but of course not Tun is in there waiting for you..hehe...this clinic was become very famous among people at Kedah because of the generousity of Tun..he charged patient differently followed by the patient's background..such as, if the patient come from a poor n hard family sometimes he will give a free treatment to them..andd sometimes he will go to the village that far from town to give them a proper treatment because we know at that time, the villagers are hard to get the proper treatment at town because they did not have transport n also poor..huhu..

Tun has been active in politics since 1945. He has been a member of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) since its inception in 1946.He was first elected as a Member of Parliament following the General Elections in 1964. However, he lost his seat in the subsequent General Election in 1969. Owing to his keen interest in the country's education, he was appointed Chairman of the first Higher Education Council in 1968, Member of the Higher Education Advisory Council in 1972, Member of the University Court and University of Malaya Council, and Chairman of the National University Council in 1974 and bla3 more in politic arena until he was appointed as the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia on 16 July 1981 and stepped down as Prime Minister on October 31st 2003.
and i think i didn't hv to tell what he have done as a prime minister of Malaysia because we all grown up in his time..all we know today is because of him..and i can say that we are the Tun Dr Mahathir generation and i proud of it..maybe some of us will said that they hate Tun but that is their own opinion rite...for who are agreed with me..together we read this poem and think about it..this poem was written by Tun because he really2 love all of us...
