National Day of Malaysia

Along all these years of National Day of Malaysia, I don’t really have any celebration or doing anything special to celebrate the biggest day of Malaysia. There’s only once that till now still leave me a good memory is during year 2004 where I’m still in lower six at S.M.K Batu Lintang, Kuching. During that year, our school having a competition to celebrate National that is to decorate our class. With the idea contribute by Chun Yi, Lee Sian, Lareina and Ke Xin ( hope the spelling of the name is correct.) which is making a big Malaysia Flag behind our notice board, we start to plan and buy material. Under the lead of our class monitor, Swee Yong, we only need to stay back after school for two days to finish up this project. The material we used is only newspaper, paint and glue. There are still other decorations that we have done to our class room but this is the one that give me more satisfaction than the other. However, the result of the competition has disappointed me because we only get the prize for most creative decoration but not the champion. Until today I still can figure out what make us not the champion and what make them the champion because their decoration look so normal. Well, this is the cruel part of the competition which we have to accept. The picture below show the Malaysia Flag we have build.

Malaysia Boleh!!!

In the picture above, from left to right: Swee Yong (class’s boss), Swee Lek, Wee Loong and Wee Khiang. I’m the one who sit and seem to be the boss, hehe….

Lastly, again is the slogan that never miss: “Merdeka!! Merdeka!! Merdaka !!”. Happy National Day to all Malaysian and all the best for the upcoming challenges.

DESA Milk Farm, Kundasang

Desa fresh milk can buy from any supermarket in Kota Kinabalu. In Sarawak, this milk can also be found in some of the grocery stall but the price is slightly expensive compare to Sabah. This is because this fresh milk is produce by DESA CATTLE (S) SDN. BHD in Sabah where their milk farm is located in Kundasang. The milk farm is not big but there’s lots of cow. I feel that the number of cows here does not enough to produce the milk for all the local Sabahan and at the same time to export to other state. This might be why not every day we can buy this milk.

The cow is in black and white which is alike to the New Zealand cow. I got no idea what species it is. They can be raise in Kundasang mostly because the weather here is very cool. The milk farm is open for visitors every day from 8a.m. to 5p.m. The entry fees is cheap which are RM3.00 for adult, RM2.00 for kids and student. If you come on the right time, you will have the chance to see their process for producing DESA fresh milk.

The view around the farm is very nice and the air is cool. It is very relax to spend holiday in Kundasang. You can fully enjoy the life in the countryside. Kundasang is located about 2 hours from Kota Kinabalu town. The milk farm is located about 15 minutes from Kundasang’s market.

Beware! There is lots of mine all over the field of the farm.

H1N1 in University Malaysia Sabah

Since last week, University Malaysia Sabah had one confirm case of H1N1. However, this does not bring UMS to the state of temporary shutting down for a week or two like what had been happen for other university in West Malaysia. I got no idea whether the decision of not shutting down is a good or bad. From a point of view of student, we all hope that we can have extra holiday which will also give us a better guarantee for not infected by H1N1. Seem the UMS decide not shutting down, we can do nothing but to accept the consequences.

Anyway I’m not going to talk much about the decision but to show what action have been taken after the decision is made. Seem the student who had been infected is from my faculty, the basic precaution step is being taken. Today, we are given free mask to wear. Of course every one of us went to take it no matter us willing to wear or not. Maybe we all know the seriousness of H1N1, we are all very cooperate with this action taken by the faculty. From the picture, you can see that all of us wearing the mask provided. Please ignore the unorganized lecture room in the picture, it is not the main point. We have already got used to study under this environment

H1N1 does not affect our study mood

Recently most of my friend fall sick continually, this really make me worry for myself. Well, I hope that this H1N1 can leave our ground as fast as possible. Although it bring extra holiday to us but it is not the holiday we really wish for. Here by I hope all of you took care of your personal hygiene and remember to look for doctor if you found that you have any similar symptom of H1N1. Take Care!
