Is it possible?

Hi.

This is a problem statement.

Can someone be a hypocrite and anti-hypocrite at the same time?
Can someone be honest and dishonest at the same time?
Can someone be a racist and an anti-racist at the same time?

Is it at the exact same time or like a double-faced agent like in the hollywood movies we watched?

What do you think?

Iowa State University at Night

This is where my lab class was that night.

My department's building, next to Coover Hall.

I don't know what this is. Water reservoir, maybe?

This looks like a typical spot for a photo, right?

The Parks Library.

The building's design (up) is quite interesting. Guess what. That's the back door.
The front looks normal.

I thought only Malaysians leave everything anywhere we want.
Or was this done by aliens aka nonimmigrants?

Cacing Kepanasan

Salam.

Dah lama dah Risham tak kemas kini blog ni.

Mula2 memang Risham tak paham. Tapi bila orang dah cakap macam tu, baru sedar. Baru tahu maksud dia.
ha.... Memang tak senang duduk lah Risham. Tapi takde lah macam cacing betul kepanasan.
Rasa tak sedap hati je lah.

Growing up

Joe asked his dad, "Dad. Why do i always feel some attraction to girls, repelled/hate another girl, feels like the world is full of hypocrisy, have the urge to find myself, what am i, what's my purpose of living, like i am the only non-hypocrite person on the planet, my methods are the best or the only way to do it, i'm the only one being rational, i'm the only one who thinks before i act, i want to be popular, i want to be different. Sometimes i feel like that person is talking bullshit, hypocrite, seems religious but actually a devil inside, only wants things that will benefit himself and all. Why is that, dad?"

The dad answered, "It's easy. You are just growing up."

Perfect For You

No. This is not Perfect For You by SNSD.

Online quizzes, assignments and all. It's great if it has no deadline. If it does, it is kinda sucks.
Have to check every now and then.

Haih.....

Belum Tentu

Salam.

Apa yang bagus sangat? Dah hebat sangat? Kalau balik, tak ada sumbangan, tak guna jugak.

Kalau tak sempat balik? Kalau balik awal?

Kita disuruh kerja seperti hidup seribu tahun lagi. Bukan berlagak seperti akan ganti Ananda Krishnan dua tiga tahun lagi.

Tak payah lah nak gelabah. Kalau esok mati?

Dah. tak payah nak gelabah sini.

HUH

Salam.

ini bukan Hit Ur Heart aka HUH yg 4Minute nyanyi. sekadar kiasan. menggunakan akronim. bukan ACRoNYM MouseHunt. bukan. Multi Level Marketing aka MLM.

baru-baru ni kita disajikan dengan berita mengenai syarikat MLM yang kantoi. MLM ni bukan baru. dah lama dah. cuma sekarang ni rakyat Malaysia dah bijak pandai. mcm ada seorang pensyarah aku dulu cakap, "Malaysians are not dumb anymore". betullah apa yang dia cakap tu.

pada pandangan risham, semua ni rentetan daripada kesedaran rakyat Malaysia sendiri. tak kisah lah kesedaran apa. sivik ke, tanggungjawab mengundi ke, politik ke, tak kisah. yang penting sedar. walaupun bukan semua yang sedar, kira baguslah ada yang sedar kan? mcm ada sorang pengetua ni penah cakap kat aku, "dalam setandan pisang, mesti ada yang busuk".

ada yang masih terjerat dengan MLM ni. risham pun agak terkilan. MLM ni sebenarnya bahaya. mcm yang baru kantoi ni kn, agak2 brape ramai yg menyumpah pengasas beserta upline diorang? kalau tak buat apa2 kira baguslah. kalau ada yang asal zaman nenek moyang dulu camne? tak ke aniaya camtu.

kalau yg ajak kawan, boleh putus kawan. laki bini bercerai-berai, adik-beradik anak-beranak beramuk. nak? risham tak nak....

Hari ini diberitakan bahawa Wadja Enterprise telah berjaya menembusi alam maya. Mengorak langkah perlahan-lahan, bagai bayi ingin berlari. Sebelum berlari mestilah berjalan, sebelum itu berdiri, dan sebelum itu merangkak. Begitu juga halnya antara Wadja Enterprise dan alam maya ini.

Cubaan pertama telah berjaya dilakukan hasil biaya Kementerian Kemajuan Luar Bandar dan Wilayah atau nama glamornya, KKLW dan tunjuk ajar para pegawai SIRIM Berhad Malaysia. Silalah lawat di SINI.

Bulan Mengambang

Salam.

Orang kata, bila malam bulan mengambang, ada semacam tenaga datang. Orang berkelakuan pelik. Mungkin sebab tu lah muncul cerita Dragon Ball dan cerita-cerita yang menggunakan bulan mengambang.

Risham sebenarnya memang tengah tak ada idea nak taip apa. Isu memang banyak. Macam-macam isu boleh Risham komen. Lesen judi (cuba baca komen Dr Ridhuan Tee dalam surat khabar hari ni), ulama masuk UMNO, FELDA bangkrap (muka depan Suara Keadilan isu 24 Jun 2010), 15 ahli parlimen ada rancangan untuk MB ('ada rancangan' maksudnya samada nak tazkirah ke, gulungkan ke, pergi jumpa sekali ramai-ramai ke. 'ada rancangan' tak semestinya bermaksud tindakan yang buruk-buruk belaka).

Entah macam mana hari ni Risham terasa nak kemaskini laman ni. Tapi tetap tak terasa nak komen isu-isu yang dah disebut di atas.

Iklan Cyber999 dah disiarkan menerusi syarikat televisyen tempatan. Kalau tak silap, alamat emel yang diberitahu ialah : cyber999@cybersecurity.my. Kalau salah, sila semak komen-komen di penghujung hasil taip kali ni. Kalau ada, kemungkinan ada insan yang prihatin tolong betulkan. Kalau tak ada, saya harap anda yang membaca cukup prihatin dan sanggup membetulkan kesilapan Risham untuk kebaikan kita bersama.

Sekian.

After Clearance Obtained : F-1 Visa

Salam.

Hi. Last Friday, not today, i received an email from the Embassy of the United States of America. They have finally obtained the clearance they need to finalize my F-1 Visa Application. Then i was thinking. Do i need to answer some more questions? Do i have to?

So last Tuesday, i went back to the Embassy and nothing happened. I just need to wait for about 5 minutes and then my number was called to Counter 2. I passed my passport along with the yellow letter they gave me on my first visit there. I received a green card, not the Green Card for USA nationality. Just a card with some instructions on how to collect my passport as early as Wednesday from 3 to 4 pm.

So, the passport can be collected at the VFS Application Center at 19th Floor, Wisma MCA, Jalan Ampang. It is a small office but serves the function well. One more thing. Everything is recorded in their building or premise. For security purposes.

For now, i'm waiting for a few aspects to settle. Why? I simply want them to be settled ASAP. No reason behind it. Don't even think of asking me why. I simply want them to be so.

2. mm/dd/yy

F-1 Application Walkthrough : Malaysian Edition

Share on Facebook
Salam.

Hello guys. F-1 is an academic visa issued by the Government of the United States of America. Here's a little walkthrough for those first-timers.

1. Pay all the fees applicable. In my case, SEVIS fee and the DS-160 application fee.
    SEVIS fee is USD200 and the DS-160 is MYR462. Take a picture with white background. You can just go to the photo studio and ask them for a USA visa picture. The picture printed will be 2" x 2". If they don't give you a CD, ask for one. You'll need the softcopy of the picture for your DS-160.


2. Before you proceed, please make sure you have your I-20 issued by the university, with no errors. In case of an error, have your university issue a new corrected I-20.


3. SEVIS = FMJFee.com (some site/letter refer the same site with different names)

    You can pay the SEVIS fee here.
     Please make sure you have a printer online. You will need to print the temporary confirmation page and bring it to the interview. Alternatively, you can print to file, or save the webpage to print later.


4. DS-160 = CEAC
    First, go to an Alliance Bank near you, and ask for USA visa application form. It is the one with the US Embassy crest on top. Pay the MYR462 in hard cash and keep the Alliance Bank receipt. You'll need it at the interview.


5. Go to VFS home page here and click the "How to Apply for Non-Immigrant Visa" link at the sidebar on your left. Alternatively, you can just go to the DS-160 page directly, here.


6. Follow all the instructions and fill the DS-160 as accurate as you can. There will be a "Comment" section in the form. You may want to boast about yourselves there.


7. When finished, print the CEAC or also known as DS-160 confirmation page. It is also needed for your interview.


8. Repeat step 5 and go to Step 3 in that page. Schedule your interview. You will need the date on the Alliance Bank receipt to schedule your interview. If you encounter an error, do not panic. Try a different browser. I encountered an error in Firefox but it was ok using IExplorer. You will be asked to download a PDF file, which turns out to be your interview appointment letter. Print it. You'll need it later.


9. On the day of the interview, present your IC and your interview appointment letter to the security at the counter. Queue up and wait for them to open the gate and call you in.
You will go through the metal detector portal. Do it just like you're doing it in the airport. Try to avoid wearing belt with metal buckle. It would be tedious. If you're ok, you need to keep your electronic gadgets at the guard house. It is a good idea to just bring a phone. Leave your MP3 player and cameras at home or in car.


10. After the guard house, proceed to the main building and go through another metal detector. Take a number, and wait in the waiting room situated to your right.


11. First call, show your interview appointment letter. Hand in your number, DS-160 confirm page, SEVIS confirm page, Alliance Bank receipt, one photograph, and your current passport.


12. Second call, scan your fingerprints. All your fingers. Hands only of course.


13.Third call, interview. Most common question, "What are you going to USA for?". Other questions? Depends on the staff behind the glass of the counter.


14. Verdict. If you get a visa, you'll get a yellow card with instructions on it on how, when, and where to collect your visa and passport.
If you get a yellow A4 paper, the staff will tell you what is wrong with your application, and they'll call you for another interview. You don't have to pay the MYR462 again.
If you fail, well..... i didn't see anyone failed to get a visa this morning, so i don't know what they will tell you.


Here's the short version :
Get photograph
Pay SEVIS and Alliance Bank
Fill DS-160
Schedule an interview
Go to interview
Collect visa and passport


Checklist to interview : 
1 photograph
current passport
previous passports you still have (if applicable)
I-20
interview appointment letter
Alliance Bank receipt
CEAC = DS-160 confirm page
SEVIS confirm page
FAS letter from JPA (if applicable)
TOEFL score report
SAT score report (if applicable)
transcript : if asked, tell them the final transcript is not ready yet. past semester grade reports will do


Important sites to visit : 


It's shocking how the truth hurts so much.

Online Classroom

Have you thought of getting a certificate online? It’s easy, time saving, and also money saving. You don’t need to pay for the transportation. You only need to pay for the internet service. In addition, you can do a lot of things at the same time. You can shop online, send emails to friends, surf Facebook, and go to classroom at the same time.

Obtaining your Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is now easier than it ever does before. You can study right in the comfort of your own house.
Looking for other certificate? Maybe this will interest you. Doctor of Education (Ed.D.). Still not good enough? Maybe this will interest you. Master of Public Health (MPH). All three can be done online.

All you have to do is enrol, and start attending classes from home. The certificates given out online are as good as the one you obtain from attending a conventional way of studying, literally going to class. You can expect to have your raise in just around 12 months’ time. Studying online also helps you manage your time efficiently as you don’t need to travel back and forth to the classroom from your house.

Online classroom is very suitable for you if you’re looking for education in a revolutionary way.

Kerang dan Kepah

Kerang dan Kepah.

Kerang tanya pada kepah, " Tiba masa nanti, kau agak kau dapat keluar tak dari sini?".

"Dapat.", jawab kepah ringkas.

"Kau pasti?", tanya kerang lagi.

"Pasti. Apa pasal pulak kau tanya?", kepah menanti jawapan.

Beritahu kerang, "Minggu lepas, lala tak sempat keluar dari sini."

"Kesian", kata kepah.
"Tapi aku akan usaha bagi dapat keluar dari sini.", sambung kepah.

"Bagus. Jangan sekali kau putus asa. Alang-alang menyeluk pekasam, biar sampai ke pangkal lengan.", ujar kerang semangat.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Demikianlah perbualan antara dua spesies yang kini bermandikan ais, dan bukannya air. Dua spesies yang menanti tangan-tangan manusia, dan bukannya tangan-tangan ghaib. Dua spesies yang kini menanti anda untuk membebaskan mereka daripada terus berada di situ.

Berilah mereka peluang untuk menjelajah dunia, seperti anda.
