Tonight will be the unduk ngadau 2011 final and i have no idea who will be the winner. But i have seen the pictures of each of the finalists. It's difficult and it's unfair to determine who will be the winner based on the pictures. There are so many factors could influence the judges who will be the winner. I don't know anything about the criteria but I know that you must be able to speak your native language, wearing native custom and you must be beautiful. LOLZ!!!! Yeah....beauty is the most important thing i guess. So far my prediction based on the pictures gonna be Miss Ranau or Miss Beaufort I like the most. Maybe they look beautiful on pictures i don't know as i said it's difficult to predict based on pictures. But my prediction is 100% based on the pictures i've seen. I also love unduk ngadau Likas, unduk ngadau tanjung aru, unduk ngadau penampang and unduk ngadau Tuaran. Let's see if my predictions were correct. :-)

As predicted in my previous post Salma will be the winner and when i checked youtube last night, guess what?? She was the winner. Fuhhhh!!!!! Overall marks are 85 compared to Shihah and Iqa who only managed to get less than 65 marks. Just imagine, she left the other finalists by 20 marks ahead. LOLZZ!!! That was so funny and really funny because the week before final, Salma was last but managed to climbed and distance herself with the other finalists. Yahoooo...really amazing news you know!!!! Just imagine the other two were just too small compared to Salma for Godness sake. Really!!! I must say that. We will see what will happen to salma in a year time? How about her new single? how about her career? She will be the true champion only when she can retain herself in malaysian music industry. Anyway...Congratulations to Salma and of course Erra for choosing the right protege. First runner up was Shihah followed by Iqa.

Sandwich with cheese, mayonnaise
Two slices of bread
These are all what you need
Don't forget the eggs
I think one of the problem with most people from the west is they tend to eat only salads or sandwich and these meals are not filling at all. As a result, they tend to pinch food or take nibbles in between their main courses such as eating a piece of cake, chips, biscuits, etc. They didn't realise they have consumed more than 2000 calories before dinner time. When they have dinner, they add another at least 800 calories. Anyway..my tips is to eat something filling for your lunch. It's gonna be sandwich but this is very filling if you finish it off with a cup of coffee or tea.

Well, well, well,...what a boring day in Hatfield huh?? I know..i know..really really boring. I don't know what shall i do. I rang my friends and thought they can go out with me but they said no they can't. Each of them still have something to do and some of them actually are working. So i can't really do anything. Mmmmm...this little room is so boring. So this morning i went to St.Albans and guess what...i went to Waitrose...WAITROSE???? yes...i know this is an expensive super market but they said the food quality is so good!.
So i thought, i'll give it a try. Yeah..give it a try. So when i was there i found few Malaysian products (Imported of course). Yuuummmyyyyy!!! I miss them very much. So yeah..I bought some of them and some other silly stuffs really like lemon grass and lime leaves. In sabah i don't have to buy these silly ingredients because they are a lot outside my parents' house. But here, well everything is money. So basically no money no talk. TRUE!
I also bought that baby bamboo or they call it bamboo shoots. In sabah we call it "Robung" or in Malay well known as "Rebung". Shouldn't really buy it but as i said...London is everything is about money. Mmmm....so tonight am gonna cook special fried ice with some meats and bamboo shoots. Also would like to make a sea food salads and red and green spicy prawns. Yuummyyyy..I can't wait.

Anyway, let's go back to Mentor 5 final. Three the best contestents at last have been selected by the juries and voted by the public. Well, i always miss this performance because i am in the UK but i watch their performances on youtube. First of all, all i can say about them is they do deserve to be in the final. Based on their performances every week, i hve predicted these three will be in the final. The question is, who will be the next mentor's champion? Well..here is my prediction and analysis
Salma will be the champion because - She has the most important asset. Her vocal is the most powerful among all of the finalists. She is a combination of ziana zain and jac. Her performances were consistent every week. She can song many types of songs. It has proven based on her weekly percformance.
Salma can't be the champion if - Well, if i not mistaken she's gonna sing Cinta, listen and her new single. All these songs required her to sing it very carefully and need lots of concetration as well as energy. She might be exausted after singing the first two song. Listen for example requires her to sing the song in a huge range. In fact her new single seems like exploiting her vocal range. So she has to becareful here. Otherwise her performance gonna be a disaster!
Shihah will be the champion because - allthough vocally she is second after salma but i have to say she has a beautiful smooth vocal. For me her voice is so smooth and her new single is 100% fits with her vocal range and that's exactly types of songs she suppose to sing in the final. So bravo to Datuk! Well, she's cute? and good looking? well, yeah..she is of course. So basically her talent and look combined together perfectlly. This could be the main asset of her to win this competation. I believe she will utilise it and make her performances perfect vocally.
Shihah can't be the champion - Well, her vocal is not good enough to be the champion compared to salma. If you look at all the winners from 1st session to the 4th, all of them has really powerful voice. Pija, FiQ, Black, Mohd....you name it...Fiq and Black for example were finalist of juara lagu.
Iqa is the champion because - Well, honestly i see very litle chance for this girl to be the champio. But guess what...who knows? She could be the champion because of eddry KRU. KRU is very popular and used to be one of the biggest names in Malaysia. Many people know them and of course eddry has a huge influence of the malaysia music industry. He is creative and knows how exactly what is the current trends of the music industry.
Iqa can't be the champion - Well, her new single was not as interesting as the other two. I played once each of the contestent's new single and i can't even remember the tune for Iqa's song. In fact, i am a bit worry because there might be a pitching problem during her performance in the final. Her vocal is not that unique and for me her vocal is just the same standard with some of the af students.
So that's my analysis lol! I would say Salma will be the champion, second sihah and followed by Iqa. We will see in mentor 5 final this weekend....

Wel, probably this is one of the most beautiful lakes in England and guess what???? i was here for just a few hours for a lunch when we were driving up tp Scotland that time. Ha...ha.....ha.....We had to take that very long route just because i wanted to see this lake. All i can say is yes the lake is really beautiful but i am sorry because on the pics above it doesn't look very beautiful. But it is actually very beautiful.

Well the font in red colour, that's it. That's the message i got from the European conference organiser. It was in the morning about 9 am. I just got up and with my half asleep brain started on my laptop. I was still very sleepy that time but i don't know why i insisted myself to get up. Anyway, I opened my university's email and i saw there were two unread messages. I clicked the unread messages and i saw one from my supervisor and second one is from the event organiser.
After reading both of the emails i was really happy and posted on my facebook's wall about this news and i got many congratulations wishes from my friends. I am really happy because only God knows how much time i spent my time on it. Only God knows how much effort i put on it. I was really tired and i went to bed 4am every morning and get up at 9 am every day. Yeah, i did lots of things and i feel so proud of myself for this achievement. This is probably one of the biggest achievement i ever did in academic field. I am really happy.

I remember one of my friends who bought an an expensive Rolex watch with a slightly cheaper price. He thought it was a genuine Rolex shop. He paid hell lots of money to his watch. After a year, he went to a Rolex shop and asked for a service to clean the watch. He was very surprised when the Rolex specialist told him that it wasn't a genuine Rolex. Wow!!!! Just imagine he paid lots of money for it and realised it wasn't a genuine. He tried to trace the shop but after a year, the shop has closed.
Anyway, if you are looking for sale of goods and services act or if you are using google search engine, alternatively try to google sale of goods and services act 1982 and you will find lots of them on the internet. However, they are not as clear as whatconsumer.co.uk. I have read it and visited the website. I give it 4.6/5. Take a look guys.

After a disappointment....we were redirected by a local to have the best seafood restaurant in north west scotland. Yeah..i was very excited to have it. Well, this restaurant is really in a rural area and we had to drive probably about 30 minutes in the nearest town. Owh..we had to stop many times to ask the locals there where the restaurant was. This restaurant is very well known and that's why we managed to reach the restaurant. Not so easy but not that difficult. Anyway..I had seafood set and a soup as a starter. WOW!!!! The best sea food set i every had in my whole life. Yummyyyy..everything is so delicious. But....well sorry to tell you guys..but it's expensive. In average we paid about 30 pounds each for a lunch. I think for this price, it's already a dinner price in London. But QUALITY was SUPERB!!!!

The pictures as you can see above were taken last months. I was busy with my thesis that time achieving my fourth objective i guess. Yeah! Even though I spent my 3 days time in Scotland that time but it was never a waste. In fact i am so grateful had the chance to see the country. It was really a lovely country. I think the landscapes in Scotland were prefect. I would really love to live there but one thing certainly can turn me off is the cold weather. Am sorry but i just don't like and i never like the cold weather. Spring is fine for me but winter is horrible. For me, when winter comes, it seems like you can't do anything outside unless you are already get used to it. But someone like me, no way and no chance to love it. When winter comes all i can do is to sit indoor and do boring things over and over again for 3 months. Gezzzzz..i really cannot take it. But i love Scotland especially the landscape.

This picture was taken last month (again! yeah). I was kind of busy that time but i don't know why i still managed to climb a mountain in the middle of my dissertation. In fact, I had a day tour of north west Scotland and all i can say is WOW. Probably one of the most beautiful landscapes i ever seen in my life. I love beaches so much but I must admit that I love forests and mountains as well. Scotland has all what I wanted to see which i never expected it really. That's on the picture is me standing on the bank of the river and they are using this river as a hydroelectric power to supply the some of the areas over there. I just love the landscape and if it was not cold that time i felt like i wanted to take my clothes off and jump into the rive and swim with the fish. LOLS!

This is me at my first jogging this year LOL!
I have been jogging in the last few days after i finished my thesis. Now i just need to re check and make sure everything is all right. Here is my current report of my last jogs;
1st attempt in average i did 2.6KM = 25 mins Note: I thought i was dying. After a half kilometer, i felt i wanted to vomit on the ground and i felt my head was dizzy. Arghhhh...it was terrible. In fact i felt my tummy was aching and my legs were painful. Jesus!!! it was horrible
2nd attempt in average i did 3KM = 22 mins Note: Well, i felt the same exactly like when i did it first time. But the difference is the pains were not stay long. At my first attempt, the pains stayed all the way when i was running. It was terrible. Arghhh...Because the pains didn't stay that long, i managed to go a bit further and made 3KM instead of 2.6.
3rd attempt in average i did 3KM = 18 mins Note: Much better this time. I didn't stop many times. I think i only stopped twice in 3 KM and managed to shorten the time to 18 mins instead of above 20 mins. Yippieeee...that's great.
I can't wait to do my fourth attempt. He..he..he...he..

Talking about Road Traffic Compensation, I don't really know which one is the best as i am also new here in the UK. However, few days ago a friend of mine who is currently living in London emailed me a link about his accident consultant. Based on his review, the company guarantees 100% compensation without any hidden costs. All you have to do is to follow these four simple steps (please click the link). He had two accidents since he moved to London years ago and he always happy with the services provided by the company. They are very efficient and effective! And the most important and I really like is about the fact you don't have to pay anything whether you win or loose. Would you like to give a try? I will certainly give it a try.

Here are some of the pictures form the Royal wedding. I didn't attend the wedding tho but these are pictures of my friend of managed to attend the wedding. Yeah..he did attend the wedding. I was busy with the thesis so i thought instead of going there i better finish my thesis. He..he...he...well i managed to finish my thesis at 4 pm. YES....if u look at those pictures don't you think the he looks so old for his age? How old is so actually? Honestly i really thought he is early 30-ish and the girl looks matured as well. I thought she is around 30 or maybe 31. Sorry maybe they are early 30-ish..but i thought they were in the middle of 20-ish...mmmmmmmmm

Isn't is lovely jogging on a beach?
Yes..what can i say? It is very low at the moment and i have tested it. Oh dear.yesterday i went for a run and guess what. I did in average 2.6 KM for 25 minutes..that was really bad tho. I must admit it was the slowest time i ever recorded in my life. But what do you expect after spending months in my room doing my dissertation and all of the sudden o went for a run? I felt like i was vomiting on the ground. I had headache as well. For goodness sake it was terrible. Anyway..i want to go for a jog as well today but the weather seems so terrible yucks. You know what i mean, it's windy and miserable LOL! Yes it is actually..really miserable. I wish i was jogging on a beach...must be very nice tho. I really like it. But i live in the middle of a town. Mmm..no beach :-(
