half way there

aha, the 3rd paper is finally done and this means I'm half way there...Yay!
2 more papers then bye bye 1st semester.

Another cool paper of short and concise notes. Majority of the question directly from the notes but my brain got mixed up with some things so might lose a few marks here and there.

All in all, it was good la. Test our thinking powers by using our own examples...

Apparently i hurt/injured my supraspinatus (SSP).
Dr asked me, "Now not exam time ah?" I nodded yes "but today no exam paper for me :P"
examine me, inquire more about the injury, ask me to do some movements, identifying where the injury is.

"Oh, you're sports science ah, which part of the shoulder do you know?"
I only know the deltoid, LoL.
"The function of the deltoid is (something about moving shoulder up and down if i recall correctly) anyway it's the rotater cuff that's injured. Just level 1 only, so nothing to worry la"
She brought a plastic rotater cuff and showed me Subscapularis. Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus and Teres. "After your physio, come see me ok"

Just a minor pain on my right shoulders.

Phisioterapist turn now, cik Faizah: OK, pain on your right shoulder, SSP. Did you fall down?
me "i play rugby..."
cik Faizah, " I mean, not during sports"...NO..."Did doctor ask you to rest?" ...nope... "Hah? Dr tak suruh you rest?"... "Dr ada ambil x-ray tak?", "Tak juga?"

Put hot pack 15 minutes then teach me 4 exercises to repeat 10 times. ok done.

back to see the doctor,
The doctor strap my shoulder with kinesio tape. My doctor is a very funny and friendly one.
Dr Stella said, "This tape Lee Choong Wei wore and lost to Lin Dan, but got other athletes who wore this won gold medals..." haha.
This tape reduced the pain and so the doctor told me, "Kinesio tape inhibits your muscle, meaning rest your SSP muscle so that it can heal faster. No pain doesn't mean you're cure ok."
I'm suppose to leave the tape on for 3-5 days.

The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion. For more info on Kinesio taping visit

movements during exam ;P

aha, the 2nd paper for me.
not much notes to read as this class was more to practical learning and many practical test.
The paper was quite cool la as it was structured, fill in the blanks, matching and then identifying.
The first half of the paper was pretty straight forward from the notes but the second half of the paper was crazy as none of it were taught in class nor in the notes. Only 1 guy from my class surely aced the paper as it is his area of sports.

Look at the diagram and then state what is the exercise called and which muscle is working. When it came to this section of the paper, you could see all the sports students doing the action to identify which muscle is involved. LoL. It's quite funny to see students who are in an examination actually imitating the exercise movement on the looked like we were sending signals to each other. Bicep curls, leg curls, flexion and extensions of arm and feet, adduction and abduction of arm, bending elbow, ect. :D

Anyway, i feel really glad that the exam is only 40%.
30% from practical test and 30% from assignment. So, no matter what, it's a guarantee pass la.

the start of examinations

My first semester exam...
UM examination officially started on Monday but today only i sat for my first paper:
Information skills aka Kemahiran Maklumat(km). It's the university paper so it's not subject related la but must pass this subject so that can graduate wor.

This year i took 1 university subject only.
Next year I'll be taking 2: Tamadun Islam n Asia(Titas) and English 1.
A big difference in the university papers is that it is compulsory for all UM students to take and PASS, but it will not disturb our overall grades. We also won't know whether we aced it or just passed, cause all we will know is that we pass or failed. Cooler thing is it's just 40 question objective.

Ok, coming back about KM paper.
The lecturer my group got was great, Pn SABARIAH. She's very strict but she's very good in teaching this subject. A really simplified method and really relevant tips like:
1. if you see MANY NUMBERS AT THE END, automatically it's ARTICLE JOURNAL
2. If you see "PAPER PRESENTED AT", automatically it's UNPUBLISHED CONFERENCE Paper

I like the fact that this class has computer objective quizzes too. Here i can check much i understood.
I'm not much of a top student, just an average one in this subject but her tips and the quiz really helped me a lot.

Another fact i don't understand is why people who got higher than me in the mid-test wants me to teach them. I mean they got higher marks than me in the subject thus should by right understand better ma.

haunt the road

ahh, almost one week without a blog post. Proof that I've been studying? Nope..hehe.

I've been haunting the roads lately. Yea, haunting as in Ghost haunting. The reason being, my file where I keep my notes slip down from the vehicle on the way back home. My notes for 1 subject gone, just like that. My mom's van door has a gap or space at the side of the door...I'm not sure if all vans are like that...hmmm.
Just haunting the road, searching for a glimpse of my file, I sort of know that this haunting is in vain. But, there's a part of me who doesn't want to accept reality that the file is gone. You know there's a song by whitney houston.
"There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles

You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe"

oh well, Tough luck! better luck next time.
a lesson to remember: always keep a close eye on your things and don't rely too much on technology.

SCC 7s


team Malaysia

my first try :)

I scored My first INTERNATIONAL TRY! Woohoo!

We traveled by car to singapore on thursday night and stayed at Rucksack Inn on Hong Kong street.

Singapore Criket Club (SCC) International Rugby 7s tournament.
Friday morning, we walked under the rain to the PADANG, <--that's the venue name wor. Malaysia played against Indonesia in our first game. We won with scoring 45-0. That means 9 tries...yeah, including my try! My first try as a National player! Fuyoh...but, 18 points gone because we failed all 9 conversions, the field was too wet for the ball to bounce ma.
Malaysia and Indonesia

Our second game was with Singapore. We lost 29-0. It was kind of my fault la, the Singapore girls used the gap that I created as a winger.

The next day, I played the hooker position (don't think nonsense ok!) , Woah, susah betul, I barely managed to get a single ball out of the scrum. I was kind of lost when we had to realign cause I seldom play as a forward too. Sorry, team Malaysia. XC
An India player tackled me at the neck...ish ish ish. Another time, after I tackled one Indian girl, another Indian girl sat on me and I couldn't move. The referee kept saying "Tackler, roll away. Blue tackler"...I was stuck there la, how to move leh? Haiz...
Anyway, India beat us by 10-0.

The bowl finals(5th n 6th place). We faced Indonesia again. I scored my second try! Wow...
But, i must admit that Indonesia improved a lot when we faced them the 2nd time. We won by 37-0 thus winning the bowl and securing the 5th place in this SCC rugby 7s tournament.

Oh, it's time to study now...My final exam starting on 22nd Nov and ends on 3rd dec.
Time to face the book instead of facebook-ing.

My room mate, Akiko said I'm an emo person...
Then Jodie said I'm sentimental cause I still write letters.
According to Akiko,, Only Emo people can write letters...O.o, impressions...
Most of my college mate who knows me knows that i'm a bit anti-baju kurung...So, every Wednesday they get surprised when they see me wear Baju Kurung.

Yesterday, somebody asked me to smile but don't show my teeth...It was hard. It took a lot of shots to get the shot..hahahaha
Maybe cause I seldom smile nowadays...Most of my smiling pictures can see teeth wan...I guess it's also because of the "Cheese"...can see teeth when we say cheese.

my classmates call me Rihanna.

Rajah Mountain

The mountain we climb. Navy Fomdex (Fitness Orientated and Mental Development EXercise)

It took about 1 and a half day to reach the peak, more than 16 hours. We camped at night. Ate ration or in malay "rangsum" which is the army food. Hiked in the dark. We could see the first world hotel(the colorful hotel), Genting Highland from the peak of the Rajah mountain.

Walking and walking for so many hours...when will we reach?

I used to love outdoor activities but now i don't understand why i don't enjoy physical activity so much anymore?

more info on d mountain:

Gunung Rajah, Bentong, Pahang
Gunung Rajah ini, satu-satunya gunung di Bentung. Negara pernah gempar dengan berita pendaki-pendaki dipanah petir di puncak gunung ini suatu masa lalu.

Air Terjun Camang
Kawasan rekreasi air terjun ini sering dikunjungi orang ramai. Walaupun jalan berturap ke air terjun ini agak sempit namun kemudahan tempat letak kereta yang disediakan cukup besar. Gerai-gerai dan kemudahan awam lain turut disediakan disini terutama pada hari minggu dan cuti umum. Pendaki boleh bermandi-manda di jeram deras tetapi awas air pusar dibawah air terjun ini.

Trek ke gunung ini mula dari jalan balak tinggal 1KM sebelum tiba ke Air Terjun Camang. Namun bagi pendaki yang ingin memulakan pendakian dari Air Terjun Camang, boleh memintas trek balak tersebut dengan mendaki bukit di belakang Pejabat Ranjer hingga ke trek balak. Walaupun trek untuk mendaki bukit ini agak mencanak tetapi rata-rata sepanjang trek balak adalah landai sahaja.

Formasi gunung dilihat dari permatang

Setengah jam berjalan pendaki akan melintas satu penempatan baru orang asli, trek balak agak mendaki sedikit, awas anjing yang datang ke arah anda. Seterusnya pendaki akan melalui zon pokok orkid ungu yang tumbuh sepanjang tepi trek hingga satu kawasan lapang (bekas kongsi tinggal). Kenalpasti trek ke gunung memandangkan ada beberapa simpang disini.

Trek kemudian agak redup tapi masih di bekas trek balak, checkpoint seterusnya cuma bekas tapak khemah kecil (kem site pertama), dari sini pendaki boleh melihat puncak G. Rajah, beberapa langkah kedepan ada anak sungai merentangi trek. Beberapa minit perjalanan seterusnya ada satu simpang denai tidak jauh disebelah kiri.

Sebelum & selepas air bah di atas air terjun Naning

Setengah jam kemudian pendaki akan bertemu sungai berjeram. Pendaki perlu meneruskan pendakian dengan melintas sungai ini. Awas juga, air sungai ini akan menjadi deras apabila hujan dihulu. Walaupun sungai ini bukan sungai Y tapi pertemuan sebatang sungai lagi disini seperti huruf Y.

Air terjun mini, sumber air terakhir

Air Terjun Naning/Nading
Air terjun ini merupakan checkpoint seterusnya kira-kira setengah jam dari cross sungai pertama. Kem site berada seberang sungai di bahagian atas air terjun Naning berdekatan dengan sungai. Air sungai dingin dan nyaman tapi awas air sungai akan menjadi begitu deras apabila hujan di hulu. Trek dari air terjun ke agak landai, pendaki tidak perlu menggunakan tangan mahupun dagu untuk memanjat.

3-5 jam trekking dari Air Terjun Nading, pendaki akan tiba puncak satu permatang, jika cuaca baik dan cerah pendaki akan nampak dinding batu yang membentuk formasi gunung Rajah serta puncaknya. Berada diatas puncak bermakna pendaki perlu turun ke lurah sebelum mendaki kembali. Cabaran seterusnya adalah mendaki dinding batu 90 darjah tegak. Tali yang sedia diikat membantu pendakian.

Sumber air terakhir (Last Water Point) berada tidak jauh dari trek, deruan air terjun mini boleh didengari. Hanya beberapa langkah dari trek pendaki boleh pergi mengambil air bekalan. Setengah jam berikutnya pendakian agak mencanak, pendaki perlu menggunakan tangan untuk memanjat dan memaut pada akar-akar yang merentangi trek hingga sampai ke puncak.

Batu sfera di puncak
Puncak G. Rajah
Kem site puncak berada tidak jauh sebelum pendaki sampai ke puncak gunung. Panorama di puncak menarik dengan sudut pandangan 360 darjah serta angin di puncak bertiup dingin. Puncak ditandakan dengan satu batu tanda seperti bola / sfera terbenam ditengah batuan di puncak.

Air Terjun Chamang - rumah orang asli - 1/2 jam
rumah org asli - kem site pertama - 1 jam
kem site pertama - coss sg pertama 1/2 jam
cross sg pertama - Air Terjun Naning - 1/2 jam
Air Terjun Naning - puncak permatang, 3 jam
puncak permatang - last water point - 1 jam
last water point - puncak Rajah- 1/2 jam.
