Who to follow on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!

Okay guys, It’s me again, and sorry for the late blog updates. It’s been awhile since I logged in my diaries but I have a lot to shares. Personally, I have been asking myself, “In our life, we have to follow the Prophet and God… Considering that they are bringing us to the right path.. What about in internet? Who should we follow?” I mean, it is not like the ‘internet-prophet’ or something, but just people that we follow in the internet to get starting around, to know the trends, to be more knowledgeable in the internet.

Let’s start with Facebook.  First of all, as a muslim, we should follow “I love Allah” page, followed by “I love Muhammad”. They create many statuses that injects a positive responses that may affects our daily life. Secondly, as a fellow Malaysian, we should follow “Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib” page and the opposition leader “Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim” page. The purpose is to let us know better about the current political issues in our country, and by following both of the government and opposition leader. About the religion and politic, we can follow some Ustaz, for example, “Ustaz Azhar Idrus”.

On Twitter, there’s not much to follow, because I don’t really use it and I don’t know, but for example, I would follow Malaysian’s icon for example our own Prime Minister, the Opposition Leader, and some daily islamic quotes!

I don’t use Instagram much so I don’t have any recommendation, plus I don’t think Instagram is a good social networks anyway, since for pictures, Facebook and Twitter already have both functions. I think, that’s all I can simplified for today, since I am not much into Twitter and Instagram, I have to apologizes for the short and short fills on both social networks.

 

A great holiday!

One day, I was travelling on a boat. I was travelling on a Japanese ship to Japan, for my great holiday. Mind you, I am a detective-wanna-be. I always fans of Sherlock Holmes, and this is the best holiday of my life, since I was able to meet someone, who can impersonate Sherlock Holmes accurately with his great deduction and flawless reasoning. For some reason, I walked around the cabin at one particular night, enjoying the breeze. 

Suddenly, I heard someone screaming. I rushed to the voice, and saw the captain of the ship, with a pale look on his face, looking at the empty space on table. He mutters somewhat sounded unclear, “Wh-wh-who did this.. wh-who to-took my wa…tch? My-my-my ring?” I looked at the table, beneath the table, nearby the table. No signs of watch and ring. Suddenly, the guy, Mr. Conan Edogawa came. He asked, what kind of ring, what gem on it, what brand of watch, and how it was missing. 

The captain, murmured.. Diamond, Rolex.

My, that is a hell of valuables! This case is getting interesting. I looked at Conan, wondering what he is up to. He suddenly went outside, and after few minutes, he brought a five men to the Captain’s Cabin. He said, he went to every department, and grabbing the missing person from each section as a suspects. Conan said.. “Now, I need to know your alibi for the last 45 minutes!” 

The Phillipino cook (in a heavy overcoat) : I was in fridge room getting meat for cooking.

Hmm.. no wonder anyone cannot see him, he was alone in the fridge. If THAT’S was true.

The Indian Engineer (with a torch in hand) : I was working on generator engine.

Yeah, yeah. Engine. What’s need to be working on? Too suspicious.

The Srilankan seaman: I was on the mast correcting the flag which was upside down by mistake.

What?? Was it? I didn’t realised. I have to check it later if it were fixed or not.

The British Radio officer: I was messaging to company that we are reaching next port 72hrs. from now, on Wednesday morning at 1000hrs.

Wait.. That’s very near to the captain’s cabin. Most suspicious guy I say.

 

The French navigation officer: I am on night watch, so sleeping in my cabin. 

Oh, but then why no one can’t see you? You had a private cabin do ya?

After a hard thinking, I pointed to the Indian Engineer. You sir, are the thief! Hand me the valuables! But it turns out, he didn’t have it. I glanced at Conan, he was watching as I deducing the thief, and smiling. I did body checks on all of them, and no one of them had the valuables. I was furious! So which one is the thief? After a while, Mr. Conan said.. “Sigh, Nicko. You can’t deduce well, do ya?”

“There is only one truth. MR SRILANKAN SEAMAN, YOU ARE THE THIEF!”, he pointed at the seaman.

“Why, why me..?!” 

“Tell us, Nicko, in which ship we are traveling.” “We are in a big, metal ship?.. Oh wait, JAPANESE SHIP!” 

“True, therefore, Japanese flag, which is red dot in centre of white flag, is the same even though it’s upside down. So, please return the valuables or I have to apprehend you now, seaman.” And thus, the case was closed. I was very impressed! But there’s one thing bothering me. Why I am not in one of his suspect list? “Because.. I saw a stained mark on behind of your coat, just below the shoulder. Your bottom is very exquisite. I might suggest, you have a bad backbones due to recent surgeries, and therefore you can’t run very fast, or even bows too low. And in this type of ship, they uses short tables, which is very low and therefore must be hard for you to reach it. And plus, you were the first one to arrive, which mean you didn’t have much time to hide it, or you won’t bother hiding. That’s when I noticed your watch, a custom made Pelican, which is more reliquary and expensive than the captain’s Rolex. I don’t think your were the criminal.”

I was dumbfounded. That was a great deduction, no mistakes at all. Even there is nothing special in the whole holiday, this moment of thrilling criminal’s catching is truly a great experience to deal with! 

Why dog is called a ‘man’s best friend’?

Dog is so-called ‘man’s best friend.’ I always wondered why.

Well, here’s a lyrics from a song I’ve found.

 

 

Pain that won’t heal,

Sadness you feel, 

Smiles with hearts’ bitterness that replaced,

‘I’ll never smile again, I’ll never let love in again’,

Don’t ever say such things to me,

A future we cannot see,

All happening meant something in story,

In time the clouds will clear away,

So just please, stay with me!

Who are we, to pass through you?

That answer will find you someday.

-Taken from Bleach OST

D’technolife – UVERWORLD

 

Unless any of you can’t understand it, I will summarize what does the song tell us.

The song meant a situation, where someone you regards as your best friend trying to console you for things that happens in your life. For instance, when you faces bad situations, you are in troubles, you have problems, when you are in pain or such sadness, do you have that one true friend that will stay by your side?

True enough, a human best friend, no matter how good is him/her, they won’t be able to stay by your side all the time, because you, me, everyone of us, is imperfect. But there is a creature that can be regarded as a best friend, yet will stay by your side all the time. That creature is a dog.

I heard one time, a man had a dog. This man kept the dog for 6 years as his companion, since his wife died of cancer. This dog helped him fetched his mail, helped him on simple house chores (getting his remote tv, guard the house, take out the thrash), accompany him to the park, followed him to supermarket, and almost by his side 24 hours a week. One day, the man had a bad fever, and his dog was barking unusually. This causes the neighbour to get irritated and came over, and since the dog won’t stop barking, the neighbour peered over the window, only to find out the man had a stroke. He called an ambulance and saved the man’s life in time, for if he was late by 25 minutes, that man is a goner. Anyway, the dog stayed true and grew old with the man. And one fine day, the man died of old age, and was buried next to his wife. The dog, with sadness filled in his eyes, stayed near the grave without foods and drinks and eventually died beside his master’s grave.

I found it really heart touching since I had a cat, and my cat won’t even come if I call him. And only comes if I am holding their foods. What a selfish cat.

 

My first day in college.

Everything was dark..

Everything was gloomy..

I was left with my only faithful companion, which is Sir Adler,

to journey to this new ground.

This story begins like this. My old residents were crushed, burnt, and I had to flee to the new place. The first time I arrived at this place, Sir Adler and I observed the new grounds. There was a gateway, a huge gateway. Sir Adler observed at the old plaque, it had a carving on it. An italic words which spells out U N I T I was the only one left from the old ruins. It’s okay, it’s look like no one inhabits this place for a long time. 

Sir Adler and I proceed cautiously, for the enemy may be lurking around for the opportune moment to catch us off-guard. I was tired due to the long journey, and I had to rest any time sooner or my legs will fall off. After a long walk, we finally reach a deserted small town. This place was called UV (abbreviations for UNITI village) and the population is very small. I went to the reception, and registered us as the residents under fake name, to hide the fact the we were hiding here. We registered under Nick and Adli, which sounds like common country name. We had to carry our luggage to our room, what horrors! So inconvenient! I am a king! Why should I carry my own luggage? There should be a bellboy to help us, but since this town is deserted, it is very hard to pay for workers. Well, at least that explains the broken toilet and sink. I had trouble suiting myself to this humble apartment.

Nonetheless, it is a very good hideout for the time being. I attended the school as a brilliant disguise. Well, my first day wasn’t very bad. I came to a deserted place, encountered a strange looking old man, dealt with broken toilet and sink, enjoyed a very unsatisfactory dinner, joined a dull commotion about keeping safety amongst the livelihood and went to study as disguised at some ancient looking village called K.U which stands for Kolej UNITI, and then gathered a merry group of young talented man, the knights of round tables, which I state here as their undercover name. Arham, Fadzli, Adnin, Gawan, Hamdan and Zul. But nevertheless, I have to stop writing now. It is getting very dark, and I am writing this memoire in case I won’t make it through the year living here. I’ll write more if anything special happened. 

My favourite festival!

In the world, there are many types of celebration, festival and gathering. As a normal human beings, I, myself have my own favourite festival. But, I won’t be blogging about national, culture or traditional festival, we leave to reporter. Instead, I am going to blog about modern festival. Yes, as some of the readers may have figured, I am deeply in love with music and light festival.

Light festival consists of bunch of fireworks display, the neon lights, and lots more. They say, pictures bound to say thousands word. So I included some of the light festival photos.

 

LightFestival2

As reader can see, the festival of light is very fascinating! It involves a lot of light display (obviously…) and the show of fireworks in the night. It is truly amazing, especially the colourful display with a background of the black night. Furthermore, the festival of lights always been held at the opportune time of the years, especially around the holidays.

So, most families can hold a great family gathering and it will help strengthen the family bonds between each other which is truly amazing, isn’t? Feel the love and peace! I am really looking forward for this festival to be hold in my own country, Malaysia! This is truly a festival I won’t miss.

Now, for the second festival, which is the festival of music. Festival of music consist of many great producer of music around the world, and staged at almost around the world, and from many type of  genre of music, especially the house, electronic, rock, pop, and much more. It is considered as the great gathering of music producers and it is very enjoyable.

Music festival is one of the great celebration, especially it is held nationwide. Almost all the time, people will come to release stress and have fun with friends and families.

Most of the people said, music festival is one of the idiotic culture developed from teenagers partying and jumping, dancing and get a little bit tipsy, but I believe this type of festival holds a stronger, bigger purpose. What I am trying to state here is, music is a universal language. Music can reach into the listeners heart easily, and it can be used to drive personal emotion. What if, for example, you hate someone but you don’t want to tell them directly? You send music to them. What if you want to express your love feeling to your crush? You send them music. What if you knows a plot of embezzlement in a huge company? You send music, indirectly to tell people about it. What if you want to send messages to politician, to country, without being a traitor? You make music, you sing it!

Music is a universal language, and it communicate under one true mission : Peace!

As you, readers can see in the pictures, there’s a lot of people in the festival. But they are united. They are, under the influence of music. Even though there’s black guy, white female, ginger boy, asian dude, from all round the world, we are united by music. Well, at least that is what I feel.

Well, that’s the summary of my two favourite festival. If there’s a chance, I want to write longer, but that’s that for now. Till next time, NickiiHolmes-kun.

Global Warming – What’s with it?

Global Warming-1

What is global warming? I bet every of us knew this topic too well, so I shouldn’t get into details. Instead, I want to story how I met my girlfriend. But don’t get it wrong, it is still about the global warming-related!

9 months ago, I was at the college’s hall and was ‘abducted’ from my sleep, by being forced to listen to a ‘Global Warming’ campaign and, honestly, I think everybody came reluctantly or just there for the attendance. But still, I am glad for the aftermath, I ended my solo life after a few months. Ok, the story is like this..

One fine afternoon, I came and sit through 2 hour of the most boring speech of my life. No, I am serious. It was boring to the maximum, and if it wasn’t for the girls, I would have the most devastated and exhausted looks on my face. Since our college has like, a triple ratio of girls to boys, I would have to take a good care of my appearance, wouldn’t I? Nevertheless, after the boring speech, we have to go to the back of the hall and sign our attendance there, on a piece of paper. I was like.. Oh how brilliant! Around 400 students and only 3 printed papers stapled together were given out!? I think.. we spent like half an hour waiting for our turns..

It was a long queue, but by time I reached the paper to sign my name, I quickly snapped a pen from random girl around me. I don’t care. I don’t think she will remember my face, or I don’t think she cares. But after I tried to sign it, it turns out to be, the pen was worn-out. I came to a blunder house. I don’t know what to do, I put the pen on the table and walk away as if I didn’t care at all.

Who knows, that girl, whom her pen being snapped out of her hand by a stranger, fated to be mine a couple of months later, and the stranger was me. I never knew this, until we talked and exchanged stories about our early days in the college. For real, I would have been really ashamed, because from what I thought, no one will remember my face, or even cares. But she did remember, and she cares. She said, she were trying to find a working pen for me, but I ran away. Sigh.. it is a good memories.

I can’t forget to remember about it, every time I’m asking to borrow pens from girls, especially ones that looks like her. So, thanks for the ‘Global-Warming’ campaign! I appreciated it! And save the world, go green! Thank you for reading.

Creepypasta : The Keyboard

18th January 2014, Friday, 5:32pm

My friend asked me to accompany him sleeping at his house. We lived about 2 blocks down the road of Smith St. I was doing an errand for my mother when he texts me asking me to come by tonight because his parents are away. So I decided to sleepover at his house. 

7:17pm 

I packed my bags, my laptop, my Razer Deathstalker Essential keyboard, my Steelseries SENSEI mouse, and my Siberia v2 headphones. We are going to have a LAN party. As a teenage boy as myself, we are often indulges in computer games, and often spending times playing Defense of the Ancient together (Dota in short). On my way to his house, I grabbed a carton of Monster Energy Drinks, oh yes, a carton, because we usually stays up very late and sleep the whole day. 

8:29pm

I arrived at his house. Another two of my friends arrived earlier than me. They are playing a match against some Russians, and I wouldn’t say it’s a good idea since usually, Russians are bad at Dota. Now there’s 4 of us, we were waiting for the the last man, our point man player, waiting for him to arrive and party with us. Basically, it’s a 5-man-game and it would be incomplete if there’s only 4 of us.

9:27pm

It’s the time for the next match. Suddenly I felt my phone vibrates. It was a text message… from Alex. I couldn’t make up what Alex trying to say. “kboard .. m3..m1.. fn2.. num2..3″. I showed to the others this message Alex sent to me. They couldn’t figure it out either. All we can make out is ‘keyboard’ and some numlock 2 and number 3.. other than that, we can’t figure out anything else. But my anxiety made me think, what does m3, m1, fn2, num2 and 3 means? Could they be related to the ‘keyboard’?

11:12pm

The guy that we’ve been waiting finally arrives. We were very anxious since he arrived so late without telling us. He said, it took him a while to dig it through the traffic. We laughed at his joke. No shit, the traffic is REAL bad at around 10pm, aye? Nonetheless, we wait him setting up his gaming gear and get his head in the game.

19th January 2014, 12:06am

We just finished a very satisfying but exhausting game. The opponents were tough, but we finally won it. It took us our mental and physical energy so we lays wasted for about 10-20 minutes. I usually go for a smoke after a game or two, and a sip of canned drinks. But then something weird happened, we couldn’t find Alex anywhere. I usually ignores him, since he always dozes off earlier than us, or maybe he went outside and chatting with his girlfriend, or maybe he is taking airs by walking around the house compound. 

12:12am

After a bit of chit chatting with my friends, I remembered the text Alex sent to me. Actually, I never remembered about it, but in a glance, I saw Alex’s keyboard and it had those buttons. M buttons, standing for micro button, and FN buttons standing for functions. I was wondering, why Alex send me those.. creepy message. Since he isn’t around, I get on his laptop and tried the keyboard. I randomly type anything on the wordpad. At first, it works like a normal keyboard. But the thing get stranger when I randomly pressed the extra buttons on the keyboard, a series of random word appeared like someone typed it. A lot of “come to my house call Jimmy beneath farther beneath above im alone” and alot of word that doesn’t make senses appeared. I stopped. I think I know where this leads to. I erased the random gibberish, and then I typed in the order as in the message. The result was shocking, but still we doesn’t know what it’s means. “Come to my house Help me I’m trapped Beneath 3″. At first, we were stranded with questions but, after few time reciting the phrase, we finally made out what does it says.

12:43am 

I grabbed my car keys, and was about to reach for the door knobs when Alex open the door. He asks me where I’m going. I, tongue-tied, stutters and could only murmur a voiceless mimic of smoking a cigarette. He stared at me and blocked the door. He puts up his phone and showed to us the text message he sent to me, and said.. “So you’ve figured it out..?” His soulless eye looked right through me and I were startled. All my friends were sounds asleep. I was shocked, and I took a glance over my friends. All of them were finished the canned drinks that were poured in glass, so it must be a case of sleeping pills or something. I felt dizzy..

8:47am

I woke up the next morning the sounds of police alarm blaring over the neighbourhood. I boot up my laptop, and logged in my Facebook. I read my news feed.. 

“ALEX, 19, WERE FOUND DEAD BENEATH THE TREE. HE WAS BURIED AND SUFFOCATES TO DEATH. THE POLICE REPORTS SHOWS THAT….”

Funny, that name sounds familiar..  Do I know him? 

 

Why I choose DKTM?

Hello guys.

I am Nickdzul. Ever heard of the saying..

“You know my name, but you don’t know my story.”

Well now, the purpose of this blog is to let you guys know my name, and my story.

 

I don’t want to start this blog with introduction to myself, as it is too mainstream. Instead, I’ll write about the course I am taking this year, which is DKTM. DKTM is an abbreviation stands for Diploma Kejuruteraan Teknologi Multimedia. So, I am a multimedia students. Nice to meet you guys. So, why the hell in the world, I chose Multimedia? Multimedia isn’t a prime line, high top career, or a hot and vogue stuff most teenagers prefer. But why did I chose it?

So let me tell you a little bit about my past time. I used to play RuneScape as my favourite past time, spending my time playing the game MMORPG-ly (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) and almost had no time other than computers. As my side career other than RuneScape, I also play Dota, which is a competitive gaming consider to RuneScape. So, my life 80% is in the interwebs. If I am not playing, then I am handling the forum, or talking in the chatroom, or even webcamming, and voice chat, or blogging, and even marketing. Almost everything I did it on the computer.

So, as time passes by, I gradually improve my English interaction skills, my computer technology knowledges, my gaming skills. My childhood was none other than computer and internet. That’s why I require the assistance of spectacles. Nonetheless, back to the topic. I had been learning on computer since I was 10, so there’s a lot of thing that did not surprises me any more. But I never touched the animating, multimedia skills section, which I am going to do in this courses. Of course, I never liked them. But I took this as a challenge to finally face something that might give me troubles. I’ve been winning all my whole life, because I always chose something that I loved and really wanted to do. Now, will I win again?
