Student-centred learning

At the beginning of class on Wednesday this week, i asked the students to recall all the announcements I made on Monday. They have to recall in group. This will hopefully



1. Encourage communication among students
2. Inform students who were absent on Monday
3. Encourage students to reexamine what they understood
4. Gave the lecturer time to update his IG.

Pemikiran apakah ini

Orang Islam yang pandai berbahasa Inggeris tak boleh menamakan anaknya Badrul.. kerana ia bermaksud "keburukan bermaharajalela".
Nama-nama lain yang perlu dielakkan ialah
1. Azman - lelaki bon**t
2. Munir - bulan jurutera professional (maksud yg tak masuk akal)
3. Din - bunyi bising
4. Kamsin - mari (buat) dosa
5. Subki - kunci kapal selam
6. Hisham - dia lelaki penipu

Trivia palsu

Dalam banyak-banyak Fina.. Fina yang mana hampir berjaya?
Finalis
Mengapa Raja Adrian digelar King?
Sebab dia suka makan d(u)rian dan durian adalah King of Fruits.
Bilakah Fisya akan turun ke laut?
Bila dia bertukar menjadi fisyaman.

Statistical pick up line


1. "Does it feel lonely being there?"
"Excuse me?"
"Being in the top 1% of the beauty distribution?"
2. "I know i am average; but i can easily identify you as an extreme outlier" (use with caution, this can be an insult as well)
3. "If you are a scale, you must be ratio"
"Why did you say that?"
"When you are not around, my happiness is an absolute zero"
4. "You are significant predictor variable in my 'how lucky am i' regression model"
5. "I want to reject you"
"What?"
"I want to reject the hypothesis that you are not significant in my life"
The above lines are to be used only if both parties had taken undergraduate statistics course.

Puisi: Seri Sakura

Seri Sakura
Pagi masih indah
mengundang purnama bangkit
Dari kesusahan yang memenjara
Kepada kesenangan yang terjanji
Akan tiba pasti
Sakura terpaksa mengubah diri
Menjadi kaktus berduri
Untuk terus berjuang di jelapang kontang
Bergegar kuntum sabar
Dihimpit kedangkalan takrifan sebuah cinta
Dan kesempitan ruang membina warisan
Sesekali berbisik secara sembunyi
berulang menyisir kekusutan
menadah suara serigala
menggetarkan semangat
menuntut kelurusan yang jelas dalam mata minda
tiada penentangan membuta
hanya penduga arus yang ikhlas
Purnama nampak lebih indah
diganding kegagahan setinggi Kinabalu
Sakura mungkin lebih lebat berbunga
setelah membuang segala duri
