Planted a banana tree

After so long I have been wanting to update on my blog. And today I is all about planting tree. I'll talk about IPhO in later.

Today I went to the kebun of my grand parents. And I planted a banana. It was hard using the cangkul. Now I got one more experience. One year later everyone can eat the banana I planted. haha.

Relativity

http://www.hawaii.edu/suremath/SRspecialRelativity.html#relativity

Now I know how to solve relativity questions.

This past few weeks are very good for me. I had celebrated my birthday in the class, I had gone to great lengths to study and train myself in Physics( at the usual cost of sacrificing the other subjects.) I am to represent the country soon. I am going to Iran! I am proud of myself for being a good guy.

Now I will watch Transformers soon..... after using the free ticket to see fantastic 4 not so long ago.

National Mathematics Olympiad.

This morning I just went to MMU to sit for that.
Below are the questions as I remembered (sorry if the is any mistake in it)

Part A (Only final answer needed)
  1. If a(1)=6,..... a(n)=6^(a(n-1)) find the remainder when a(100) is divided by 11.
  2. Given y is bigger than -1 but smaller than 0 and x is bigger than 0 but smaller than 1 and A="yx^2" B="(yx^2)^(-1)" C="xy^2" D="(xy^2)^(-1)" arrange from smallest to biggest.
  3. A triangle has one 4cm side, the other 2 sides are in the ratio of 1:3 find the maximum area of the triangle.
  4. Simplify log(base2)4 log(base4)6log(base6)8......log(base2n)(2n+2)
  5. Express 580 as the sum of 2 squares.
  6. f is a function defined for non-negative integers and f(2n+1)=f(n) f(2n)=1-f(n) find f(2007).
Part B (Show full working)
  1. f and g are functions defined for [0,2c] where c>0 ,prove that there exist (x,y) which is an element of [0,2c] such that {modulus(xy-f(x)+g(y))} >or= to c^2
  2. Two circles of radius 1 and 2 respectively are touched tangentially on the external. A third circle touches both of the tangentially, making the centre of the circles form a right angle triangle. Find the radius of the third circle.
  3. m,n is a element of the set {1,2,3,4,.......2007} Find the maximum value of m^2+n^2 if (n^2-mn-m^2)^2=1
The time is 2hours and 30 minutes and no calculator is allowed.


I did all of them.
Try them out yourself. If you want my answers or you don't understand what I wrote, leave a comment or message me.




Now I just checked my SAT2 scores and they are
Physics 800
Maths level2 800
Chemistry 790
with 800 as the maximum score, it's not too bad right?
Ok that's all for now until next time, Cheers.

Temu Mesra

This Friday will be the temu mesra day. Parents are invited to come to school and meet the teachers, it is a day of dread to some. To me it's....... neutral.

I have gotten the 4th place in my class, together with another guy. Oh ya and my class just won the P.A. quiz, first place!! And I hope I did myself proud today. I worked with one of my classmate which I didn't like to clean up the hall after that.

Just trimmed my nails

Studying for the Olympiad is not as easy as it looks, but it's a fun process for me. I averaged a 3 days for one past years and now I only got 34 more to do before I go to UKM and Iran thereafter.
For those interested (you can't believe how many people asked me when am I going to go to Iran), I am:
  • Venue: going to Iran on
  • Time: the 12th or 13th of July 2007 to 23rd of July for
  • Event: The International Physics Olympiad (IPhO)
But I am going to UKM at 9th of July then straightly go to Iran. So I am going to "skip" school for about 2 weeks for official reason.

Below is the website where you can get the past years, In case you are interested in how "hard"
http://www.jyu.fi/tdk/kastdk/olympiads/
a material am I studying.

Now...... switching to a different topic, National Mathematics Olympiads will be held on this Saturday.

Sorry to cut it short, but it's time to go to bed......

Study For Glory

I have been studying(and onlining too) these past few days. ok Wish me luck be the Absolute winner!

Thursday, June 07, 2007

In Ukm now Finally got to online

Now I am onlining on the last day.... tomorrow don't count because it's only a test and then I go back. Oh ya, I gotta go back by 2 o'clock. so even if I wanna write a lot here, I don't have the time.
I also gotta remember how many things I have signed in here, it's a public computer.

Monday, May 21, 2007

Going off

I am going off to UKM now. Ok hope I can find an internet cafe there this time.

Tzu Chi

Just came back from there after studying P.A.
I read Buddhism books instead.
Now I remember all that goodness in Buddhism. I had been very dedicated to get myself enlighten, but I had meet some mistakes of not knowing the way to practise Buddhism. I had just realised that if being ignorant of the right way, I give up Buddhism, this is too pitiful so don't give up if you meet a little hindarance on the way, learn the right way instead.

Nothing to say........ ahhhhhh

Nice is life, basking in glory I am.
If you will excuse me for being so blunt, I thank you.
Come in lower 6 has, told them about my going to Iran I have.
Come to congratulate me many friends had.
Now is the life.

Now taking Mid-year exams I am and hope to be the best I do.
Now meditate I do. May all beings be well and happy.
Joy for all.

Update on my life so far

29th April was Sunday, I was blogging at 00:15 in the morning. And then I... was in a holiday mood, since it's holiday for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Monday night, I went to join in the Wesak day procession. It's the second time I followed in a group the whole night, the first time was in 2005.
That night I burned my hands as a result of not heeding the advice of my fellow friends to throw away the wax accumulating in my candle. Nah don't worry, it's only pain and no damage to my hands. I drove back at around 11p.m. after going back to see the rest of the procession even through I am so exhausted after that walking the whole night. Then unwisely, I when to online and missed(I think) my sister's birthday celebration. But that's not all I missed the Further Maths tuition on Tuesday morning! Plus marking the first time I can remember I didn't went to the temple on Wesak day!!!!!!
Well as bad as that seems, I got to watch Spiderman 3 in the afternoon. First day of release and I am amongst the first few thousands(must be) to watch it in the whole world. Well sitting in front didn't do the fighting scenes justice, but I gotta say as a big fan of spidey, the film is not bad, it's very good.
That weekend I went to Tzu Chi with my friend to study.
Then I got sick on Monday night. MC Wednesday and Thursday off and Friday I went to school to update on my homework.

Oh and the most important part happened on Thursday night, the thing that had me worried had been released on 10th of may... I am most modest if I don't say here that I am..........
ah whatever, being modest is good too. Ok now I believe you got what I wanna convey here. Thanks and I learned on Friday that passport making is just a little over 2 hours!

Sick Sore eyes

My eyes are red now and I shouldn't be really sitting in front of the PC now as it hurts my eyes. I had to rest for two days, so I can't go to school tomorrow and the day after.

Hoping but Afraid to hope

Today I just learned that I had to stop being jealous of other people, but that doesn't make me "un"smarter it only proves that I have more space to develop my intelligence. I gotta be like Goku who likes to meet tougher opponents to improve himself.

(Warning I am not in a good mood right now, so my sentence will be heavily mixed with my feelings and incoherent so let it be a challenge to you if you really want to understand me.)
Now I am better suited to describe what happen to me during the past week(23th to 27th). Ok I went to UKM
and does it fills with flies during the night. Not just any flies, those who like to stick around the artificial lights. Ok but UKM is good too, it has nanotech in masters and PhD.(every university has it too.)
Oh well to get to the point I got to play with AC circuits stuff, stuff you don't play with in school. Like the oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, ahh...... but the resistors, inductors and capacitors you got in school. Oh ya I can say that this camp wasn't as mind challenging as the last one. Well having said that I pay the price of not doing well in the two mechanics questions. Mr. Wee did a good job in teaching us electromagnetic. Dr. Sithi as usual make mechanics a tough time to endure. Here's a sample question. Prove that when a tall and short person walks, the taller one will be faster but when they run, the speed is independent of their height.
Try it, hint this he said is Olympiad level and use dimensional analysis.
In relativity class I didn't went there. I went for the IQ test instead. Took me quite a while to finish it too. Just too bad that I knew I could have done better, I got a few wrong. First she told me to state what's missing in the pictures. That's easy enough so long as you keep your calm, I didn't at the last few pictures. Then.... wait I shouldn't be telling you this, if you know what to expect, you will get an unfair advantage in your IQ test and it doesn't really reflect on your true intelligence. Ok before that I took some EQ test too. I tried to be as honest as I can. But the most unsatisfying part is that they ask about "Tuhan". Ya, they don't know that not all religion believes in an omnipotent god. I don't, so I put totally disagree.

Well now you should now where did I do the EQ test. On Wednesday night, in Zu Ming and Kent Long's(the one who went to the Olympiad last year in Singapore) room, while watching Alien Resurrection. Ok I am sorry to have brothered them at so late an hour. Here I express my feelings of sourness.

Now to the people. People that I share rooms together. There were 4 Muslims, including Adel.
they were in one room. And now the rest of us, nine that is share 3 connected rooms. Connected by toilets. It so happens that 7 out of 9 of us are from Penang. So since they wanna sleep together in 2 rooms, I agreed to switch places with them and I got a Kedah roommate. Well my Kedah roommate wasn't too happy about the penang guys, so I guess I got somewhat influenced by him. (Oh ya all 15 of us are males.) Which I resist and I actually befriended them. Well I do agree they had an "air" of arrogance about them but maybe it's because they are considered the best in their school and they had a lot of friends together which makes making new friends unnecessary. So if anything harmonious is going to exist it was up to me. And I say I didn't did quite a perfect job with that. Only a good enough job so that I could have showered using hot water (you see their toilet near their room has hot water but mine hadn't) but my roommate didn't showered a hot shower during the whole the camp so I feel quite sorry about that. I guess typing it down doesn't clear the karma I have now.

Interlude: They said they were going to videotape us during the experiments during the last camp, but they didn't mentioned it at all this time. However I managed to looked up and discover that they had 4 hidden cameras in the lab. The cameras are white and hemispherical shaped on the ceiling. It seems that I was the only one who noticed the cameras since when I told the others about this they didn't know. The book store in UKM Pustanika wasn't quite good since it doesn't have SAT and TOEFL books unlike UM.

Sooooo now Let's go to more practical things. On Thursday I sat for the IQ test and shortly after that went for the practical test. 4 hours for 4 experiments. And I didn't finished one of them. they require 5 readings but I only got 2 and sent in 1. Too bad lah. And after the test we were free for the night. I went on to venture UKM. Well I went on to the one way lane to the law faculty and had to go through a forest by foot on the road. Well as expected I had to come back by the same lane..... I ran back. That night, I got a late dinner and slept relatively early.
However I woke up sometime around 7 and slept back! So I wasn't angry at anyone went my roommate was panicking about being late. I calm myself down and walked there, being late for 30 minutes for the 4hours theoretical test. I considered myself to do quite well in controlling my feelings so I didn't think it was being late that make me didn't know how to do all of the questions.

Ok now I am chatting with Siraj. And I better say I enjoyed the camp too before I change my mind about it. Ahh.. yes the title, I hope I can go to Iran, cause the chosen 5 will be notified by 10th of May and they will go to Iran, representing the country and meeting Stephen Hawkings!
But I am afraid to hope cause I don't think I can be in the top 5 looking at my performance.......

Finished Manga

I just finished Pretty Face. It's a nice manga. I wish that it has a sequal.

I wanna see Spiderman 3 when it is released. It's gonna be a blast with 3 villains to fight, this movie is gonna win the Oscars.

UKM

See you there I am gonna do it.

How do you blog?

How exactly do you post in your blog? I post when I have the mood to write something cause I wanna make each post readable and meaningful. I also post whatever I feel into the post, so I only wanna post when my mood is good, no point remembering the unpleasant times in my life.

Mistakes are unpleasant to make and it is the hard way to learn. I had made some mistakes in my life so I would like to book it down in the form of what I learned from it.
  • I learned that one should respect other peoples' privacy especially in one's blog where everyone can see it.
Perhaps this is a reminder of the words with great power comes great responsibility. With the internet around, we actually had great powers. Before the internet, the only way to tell everyone anything about you is through TV,radio,newspaper(which you can't get in unless you're important or famous), or by mail or phone(but this is only limited to some friends not all) or by books you published(but not everyone can write a good enough book to get published plus it takes money).
Blogging is the way people expresses their feelings to everyone and anyone in particular. Blogging can be long or it can be short and it is the advantage of it.
And about the responsibility part, be sure not to defame anyone in your blog if you really wanna vent out your anger, you may describe the incident you are angry with but don't mention their real name to protect their privacy.
Ok now I got no more mood to write and I'll just stop here.

IPhO or IChO?

Sorry for not posting for so long. Well from the title you can guess that I selected for both IPhO and IChO! So now I got to choose between those two cause International Chemistry Olympiad Second Camp(UM again) is on the 22nd of April to 25th of April while The International Physics Olympiad Third Camp(UKM new place!) is on the 23rd to 27th. Before I tell you which did I choose, you can read about what happened in the past few weeks and think about which would I choose.

After coming back from the last camp, I did went to MMU and lost badly in the Chinese Chess Competition which shows that I have a lot to learn some more. And nanotech is offered by MMU Cyberjaya. Well the Monthly test was worse than the first one. I got the 10th position in class by the grades but 5th by percentage. No matter now I gotta prepare for the Mid year test.

Now on the 7th of April, a Saturday morning, I when for an archery competition and lost badly(again) well on the night I went to a Buddhist charity concert of GBS and had a good time there I sold my 5 tickets(out of 10) to the audience there. Oh speaking of tickets there is a Fusion Fest tomorrow at Ping Ming School Hall, I will be one of the Rovers who are in charge in the hall. So Anyone who hadn't buy their tickets please do so from High School Upper 6.

On the 14th, (another weekend) I went to Royal Selangor Golf Club (near KLCC) for a MIT conference where the ex-MIT malaysians come to advice us on how to enter this prestigious University. My cousins were there too. William and Jia Long both are quite close and I am glad. It seems that being in the same class has that effect.

Another week had past and on tuesday, I got a message that I can go to IPhO. I went to the school library and returned Lady Luck(which I hadn't finished yet) to borrow up to two physics books. And on the next day I borrowed two more physics books from the library to read before the camp. Haha and now am I busy with reading. Just earlier today I got the news of IChO and now my fellow loyal readers I leave it to you to guess which one am I going to opt for. Leave it as a comment please and thank you.

Don't be afraid to be yourself.

I had just read Angel Dust, a manga. I learned to never be afraid to be yourself, to win, to be the best, even if it means having a lot of people jealous of you(just don't show off). This is inner confidance, this is real power. I shall be the best of me.

Back from IPhO

Now I am back...... With lots of things to tell but first, we start on Monday. On Monday, I just found out that Adel got selected to go with us too to the International Physics Olympiad training camp.
After school, At about 3-something p.m. we took off in a van. It has 2 seats in the front, 3 rows of 3 seats behind it, and when the bonnet is empty, an extra 4 seats which makes it a 15 seater.
Cool is it not? Well we took the old road to Port Dickson, no breaks ,no tolls. After arriving at there we are introduced to a new friend from Selangor. Then 2 more guys arrived from kedah. So us 8 guys are roommates. The first lecture is by non other than Mr. Wee from our school, he taught us about thermodynamics about engines, the second law entropy and the third law of no way to reach 0 Kelvin.
Next came the quantum mechanics, the lecturer gives us Schrodinger equation and on the third day how to draw graphs. That's the day Yip Feng and Gilbert came. Then came Dr. Sithi who trained us in problem solving in classical mechanics. Amazing that most of engineering is composed of this section. Some question are quite hard but overall it's good. He encouraged me to do my best in the Friday test, saying that I have the potential. Thanks to him my damped spirit is revived to blazing goodness. Wednesday evening we walked on the beach. The next day came Mr.Chin who taught us some simple Tai Chi exercises then another guy who was supposed to teach us modern physics which consist of
* Quantum mechanics
* Theory of relativity
* 20th and 21st century physics, in general including nuclear physics.
but we only managed to cover special relativity and some outline for quantum mechanics and this eats up the 3 hours that Madam Chin was supposed to take, shortening her lecture to 2 hours only. And do she assume that we had finished our syllabus for the form 6. That night I had to study a lot about electromagnetism, the circuits, and optics. So the monopoly I brought wasn't played.
Just Imagine my spirit sinking when I see that I can't solve the second half of the 60 objective paper cause it is in electromagnetism and nuclear physics I tikam about 20 questions all in C. The second paper are practicals where we are expected to draw graphs and do error analysis. I can only draw graphs, not analyse the errors. So goes the 3 hours that we are given to finished it, in misery. I was so convinced that I will not be selected for the top 5 that I didn't really did my best but then toward the end of the test, Mr. Chin told us that they are choosing 20 out of 55 students! Great, even now I am wondering whether I did good enough to get selected for the next camp.
After that we were given some papers and the closing ceremony was held. I took this chance to group together the guys who took Further Maths called networking, nice too the guys there said the camp should go beyond the 5 days, but create networks of physics preferably. Then it's back home as we know it after a lunch. Ok so I got it out now I will be going on with my life. Enjoy the pictures below.


The Eating Place, we had our dinner, lunch and breakfast here.

Me and My Lego haha my roomates were speechless too when I took out the lego.
Mat Gaya wanna pose with my lego creation.

Mr. Chin teaching us Tai Chi I had learned something new too. I guess he didn't noticed I played Tai Chi in the morning too two out of four days.
Roomates at the last day (that's this morning)

Busy and happy life

For the past few weeks, I had gone to a leadership camp, joined a scrabble competition in KL, when to KL to play monopoly with my cousins....
Well let me make this chronologically correct. After a week of Chinese New Year, I studied for a week finding out that I didn't get the no.1 but fall off at no.6. That weekend I when to the leadership training camp somewhere near Taman Rama-rama. In the camp, I got "humiliated" by one of the trainers but since I didn't felt like humiliated, I didn't mind much. I didn't get much reading done on my complexity through. And in an unrelated case, I betrayed my friend who let me take his place ...... so sorry Alex.
Ok now after another week of schooling, there's the march holidays. I started off with the scrabble competition which brings me to KL and I had an opportunity to play monopoly with my cousins in Puchong.And did we rediscover the joy of it! After that, I wished to play it again so at the next chance (it so happens to be another weekend) I went back and did it.
Now one week after school reopens, I am starting yet another weekend now I'm gonna busy myself for the float for Wesak day. I do think myself as a weekender.
The juice is still here, next week I am going to the Physics Olympiad training as promised(with Calvin, Kevin, Zu Ming, And Ai Yun) hahahahahahahhahahaha. After coming back I am going to enter a Chinese chess competition for the weekends in Multimedia University Melaka. Then comes the next monthly Test. hahahahahahaha looks like I hadn't study for it. Maybe I got some time....
All in all there's a couple more things here, first I got some taste of lego building for the lego competition, and you can bet it's nice to be able to handle sooooo cool things like gears, long sticks..... well you know. Second, to complete the Olympiads, I volunteered for the Maths Olympiad. Nice considering I gonna meet my cousins in University Melaya(again) when we go for the competition. Lucky for me through, I got my team of 4 very soon(all of them are my classmates and males) and 2 of us(including me) got Further Maths to back us up. And you bet I am very happy right now.

Just for fun

Yesterday was extremely long, I went to 13 houses with 20 over classmates and friends. I wore a batman shirt (just the logo in front) and a bag with a girl's picture which my cousin said is for girls.

My robotics life

Attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My cousins are coming down tomorrow and Now I am reaaaaaaaaallllly excited and going to get the last drop of dirt out of my previous fall after SPM
and reaaaaaaaaaaallllllllly get into the mode to celebrate as the great Stephen Hawkings says "one has to grow up well enough to know that life is not fair, one just has to do one's best in the situation one's in".
And I realise that the total happiness of my childhood is gone, and the unsatisfactory happiness of the human life is the best I(as a layman, untrained) can experience so this will indeed make me go into taking Buddhism concept into my life to experience once again the untainted, wholesome happiness.
Now at lease the closest thing I have in life that reminds me of my childhood are my cousins it's been quite a while since the full set of us(6,3boys 3girls) can reunite and talk................ it's the best time of the year.
Oh right now the other thing that reminds me of my childhood happiness is LEGO! Now I am recruiting my team members to enter a lego robotics competition. Ok that all for now, as bugs bunny says "that's all folks."

Studying, Valentine's, Chinese New Year

Now I am studying Bell's theorem. I read about it in The Brief History of Time and at that time I seem to get it but now I struggle to remember how exactly does it works.

Just today I had received back my Chemistry test papers. I got a 40 over 50, surprisingly the second highest in my class! I feel quite bad that Zu Ming did quite badly in Chemistry, it makes me not too satisfied at the heighten probability of getting the first in my class. My Maths......... too bad can't get 100 cause lost 1 mark(translate to 2 marks) in paper 2.

I hadn't updated on what happened on Valentine's day yesterday. I told someone else to give Ai Yun the gift worth RM7.90 (it's a chocolate,8 pieces of them). And just before physics paper I told her that I was the one who gave it and .................... Hard to write at this point.
Well after physics paper she gave me back the gift. So I didn't actually wasted my money. Now I had to root out all the carvings I put into any kind of love fantasy and to put it this way, I am relieved that she had done so.

Soon it will be Chinese New Year. I will give the Chocolates to my visiting Cousins.

Being a good guy

I am going to be better and better evah and every day.
I am going to be good with each passing second.
I am going to retain the goodness in me no matter what may happen to me.
I am going to stand against evil even of it is in abudance around me.
I am going to turn all insult and bad saying towards me to flowers that remind me of my shortcomings.
I am now calm, because I know being good does not need energy, it needs skills that are trained over time.

Happy birthday to Ruby lin and my dear cousin

HiHi just wanna tell my dear good cousin's 18th birthday today now I am chatting with them cool huh? the internet.....

Now I will like to extend my birthday wishings to my idol and crush, Ruby Lin Xin Ru who is 31 years old today. I hope that she will at least notice this blog and leave a comment on it (ya right fat chance). Well hope she's enjoying her birthday now and if I am given a chance, I would like to .......marry her? No, fall in love first then marry her.....(this has got to be a fatter chance)

Ok now, about my cousin, he is call house dragon, or Loh Jia Long. He is one of my best friends and cousins and is currently studying in Taylor's KL.

Now about me......
I am getting the hang of form 6 social life, being popular but not self centred. Now I had just participated in the cross country of my school, running about 5km around Melaka town. Since I ate a lot for breakfast, I couldn't run fast, luckily I took the advice of Jessie who told me to walk for about 1 km first then jog, then run. So, I did just that and my friends from the first two check points told me to run. Anyway if I hadn't done this, I would have gotten less (I mean more that 45) than 45th for the 1 class (upper6 boys and form 5) boys. Overall it feels good. Now wait I am being self centred here...........whatever
I am going to Pysics Olympiad with Ai Yun soon, what to do leh?... My friends are trying to influence me to go for her, while she had told me not to be infuenced by them. This is a good chance. I shall do it, sorry Ai Yun and Ruby Lin. For my cousins had told me to. Well I just hope I can deal with the consequences if there is any.
This is it for now. May all beings be well and happy.

Stand in for good

It is dangerous to have an archenemy, whenever the enemy becomes good, you become evil. It is better instead to stand in for good and ignoring the ones who are evil because evil is not them, only that they have evil.

Anyway I am quite glad that I finally found out what's wrong with my library card. Soon I will be able to borrow books. Hahaha. Akimov look out!!!

Now I have the cool responsibility to decorate the physics board!!!!!! Thanks to the teachers, now I can finally shoot off to fame!!!!

One more thing, since you are so patient, I will share with you how to be happy. Look at the bright side of life in the present, like appresicate that you have two good eyes and can see this passage. Anyway just keep on looking at the bright side of life but don't overdo it cause it does takes a lot of effort and energy to think fast and long.

Ok last but not lease, live life for your self.
