calling to all Perakian

An article published in Malaysia Kini (Mandarin version) recently(。An excerpt of the article is below:

literally, it means:

“calling to university students, youngsters, and potential perakian voters. Please register if you haven’t done so. This is because if the state assembly hall dissolve, we don’t want potential voter can’t cast their vote owing to the late registration. Young generation should realise that, your vote may decide the rise or fall of a regime.”


霹州备战如山雨欲来风满楼, 民联相信法院裁决有利尼查



In my opinion, we should not only let off steam on the poor policies implemented in this country. Instead, we should exercise our right, vote in the election and tell politicians what kind of leadership we demand for. Unfortunately, many youngsters forget about their role.

Of course, please don’t just register and not go to vote during the election. Please spread this message around too, remember: register as voters and go to vote!

Remember, voting is not only the fundamental role we should exercise. In fact, this is an opportunity, a chance to change for a better future. Think about the future of yourself, seniors, future generations, etc…….

Just go ahead, and do it. Every single vote helps.

January 2010

A brief update after the first week of January 2010.


After 3 months of PhD, I begin my research on computer modelling apart from usual wet bench experimental techniques. Also, I also assisted by the 3rd supervisor from the Department of Mathematic and Engineering. Quite happy that I got full support from the graduate school, and It’s a very rare case on which a PhD student is supervised by 3 supervisors.

Other academic commitment  

This term, I am GTA for two modules and demonstrator for one of the year two modules. Note the difference between GTA & Demonstrator:- GTA is more likely to be “assistant” to the course organiser of that module. Mostly, we involve in organisation and administration works, e.g. arranging lecture note, answering students’ queries, assess student works, invigilate exam, etc.

By contrast, demonstrator involve teaching/demonstrating practical classes. It’s a science/experimental based tasks.

As mentioned in the previous post, I am applying associate membership of the UK Higher Education Teaching Academy. In order to qualify, I have to attend few modules which I have finished last year, and follow by an assignment. I hope experiences gained from GTA and Demonstrator can assist me to write a good assignments.


I will be coming back later of the year. Tentatively, scheduled travel across Malaysia, e.g. Sarawak, Penang, Kedah, KL, etc and foreign countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, etc.


I am healthy and fine here, although many challenging tasks awaiting me. I can’t spend much time on social networking sites and also can’t give prompt and details to each comments received, etc. But I ensure I will read every comments to me and also I will read blog post/ tweets from you guys.

Current Issue

2010 is the election year in the UK, anticipating to see the outcome and its impact to international student to us.

There were so many issues happened in home country, and seems our leaders are keen on playing political issues rather than finding solutions to develop the country.

As a result, I urge all eligible voters:-remember register yourself & cast your vote in next GE,get the right people to running the country instead of ruining her.


I celebrated Christmas and New Year in Exeter. Then, few days ago I went to London-Wales. Feel free to find out the following pictures. More pictures will be coming soon.

Trip to Dartmouth

Last year, I followed the Exeter’s International Student society went to Dartmouth. If I not mistaken, we spent ~ 1 hour journey from Exeter to the destination.

Dartmouth is a lovely, small town with nice view. Impressed with the deepwater port at Dartmouth and its narrow street. We also visited Dartmouth Castle.


The following description adapted from a website:-

The ancient town and deepwater port of Dartmouth has to be one of Devon's main tourist attractions. This ancient town has a long and illustrious history with some magnificent buildings set amongst its inquiring narrow streets. Dartmouth Castle (1481) located nearby is an imposing example of the past which still stands today after guarding the mouth of the Dart for centuries. Dartmouth's natural deepwater port, which still provides haven for many vessels, was once one of England's busiest harbours sending out sailors, pilgrims and even crusaders on voyages of discovery and expedition.
