1st paper down

Yeah, back to work. After 4 days (including the weekend) at home, forcing myself to study. Just as what the professor has told us, the paper doesn’t require much studying. It is more of applying the techniques that we have learnt. I almost bored to death yesterday. The paper was at 7.30pm. I finished revision before lunch. Then walked around the house, played the organ, slept and complained to my bf. Not that I’m very well prepared, it’s just that this exam tests our on-the-spot performance and not memorizing work. (Besides, it’s a open book exam)

In the end, I did not have time to finish the 15 marks question (whole paper only 40 marks). Think I should be able to pass, but cannot score… I’m going to choose all the modules that offer open-book. =>

The sky

I think everyone will agree that the sky is blue and clouds are white.

But here’s what I saw outside my bedroom’s window.

Seems like it’s the reverse.

Death Note Ep8 – Just as exciting

Death Note Anime is really exciting. Though I’ve watched this part in the movie but I still find it exciting. Light did his homework with his right hand and wrote the names of criminals on the death note hidden inside the packet of potato with chips with his left hand. He even went to the extent of hiding a mini TV in that packet of chips. I’ve decided not to read the manga, though my colleague offered to lend me the whole set, I prefer to watch the anime with suspense. =p

Bakumatsu OP1

The OP1 of Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto is very unique nice, titled Kouya Ruten. Sounds like ancient time Japan music or opera but mixed with pop musical instruments like electric guitar and synthesizer. The rhythm of the song is extremely nice, it makes you want to march on the spot.

It is sang by the group FictionJunction Yuuka. When I search for this group, I found the ED02 of Gundam Seed (Wheel of Destiny) and OP1 of Gundam Seed Destiny (Honoo no tobira). Seems like Sunrise like her songs a lot. =p All these 3 songs gave you similar feeling, grand and tragic. Just search for her name in Gendou and you can see all these 3 songs. Highly recommended.

In fact the song “wheel of destiny” is sang by the group see-saw. The reason why these 3 songs have similar style is because of their composer. Yuki Kajiura, the composer and music producer of these 3 songs, she is one of the member of See-Saw and they sang the song “wheel of destiny”. Yuki Kajiura is well known for her breakthrough in the animation music for its risky but highly successful mix of synthesizer, opera, and French-flaired sound. She started a project named FictionJunction, which contrary to common belief is not an alias but the name of the project itself. The project involves collaboration with artists such as Yuuka Nanri, Asuka Kato, and Kaori Oda. FictionJunction YUUKA, with Yuuka Nanri as the vocalist, was the most prolific of these collaborations. Bakumatsu OP1 is their latest work.

Prince of Tennis OVA 5 is released

This time it’s about Kaidoh testing his limits. Throughout the 2 hour long match, he did not use his “snake” technique, and though he’s playing a doubles game, he has reached an agreement with Inui that Inui will not help him much in the game.

Looking forward to the next match. Tezuka is the next player!

Impact of GST increment to 7%

It’s everyday topic since last week, whent he government announced that GST will increase from the current 5% to 7%. The main reason for this increment, given by the policy makers, is to help the poor. As usual, there are unhappiness and many people suggested that GST should be not imposed on all goods, but only luxury goods, if we are really helping the poor.

Here’s someone who actually defended the government and support this policy. From an economic point of view, it is a good policy.
