Student go for STYLISH uniforms ^_^

FASHION TREND: More students opting for tailored 'cool-looking' outfits

Mass-produced school uniform

 WITH only three weeks to go before the new school year begins, students are going the extra mile to keep up with the latest fashion trends.
Many students today prefer splurging on "cool-looking" uniforms than buying cheaper mass-produced ones, even though schools enforce a strict dress code.
"Personally, I prefer comfortable shirts made of 100 per cent cotton and slim-fitting pants," said Muhammad Amsyar Muzamuddin.
The 16-year-old said he was willing to work on weekends to earn enough money to buy tailor-made school uniforms.
"I find the ones sold in regular shops and supermarkets to be unfashionable. That's why I'd rather spend RM300 every year to buy custom-made school attire," said the SMK Methodist ACS Sitiawan student.
James Gabriel Fernandez, 16, agreed that most male students his age could be very self-conscious when it comes to their appearance in school.
"Most of my friends don't want to be caught wearing oversized or baggy trousers. They prefer slim-fit or skinny pants."
 School prefect Priya Puva, 17, from SMK Aminuddin Baki, said female students were no less fashionable and some girls would flaunt school rules to look good.
"I normally catch female students who wear custom-made pinafores which are above the knee. Some students also wear body-hugging baju kurung which is disallowed."
 Priya added that some of the most popular accessories bought by female pupils included colourful friendship bracelets and trendy sling bags.
Meanwhile, parent Helen Fernandez, 51, said she spends about RM240 yearly to buy brand new school uniforms for her daughter who studies at SMK (P) Pudu.
"We visit a tailor shop every year to get my daughter's new uniform done. She can be very particular when it comes to the material used for her pinafore."

December Quotes ^_^

If the world doesnt end on December 21st, 2012, I have a feeling there will be a lot of babies born on September 20th, 2013.

Im thankful for the regular things like my wonderful family and my health. But this year, Im so thankful for our troops coming home this December. I like to think of all the moms and dads who will be putting their arms around their hero sons and hero daughters and all the hero husbands and hero wives who will be in the arms of their spouses, and children holding on tight to their hero moms and hero dads, some for the first time.

Cuz old man winters arrived, the temperature just dived. November just died. December's alive.
And I go back to December all the time.
* ****
They run away to another country cos they thought things would be better for them up there in the month ofDecember they got married in Chicago and it was all the same everywhere they went heads will turn.
I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind.

Back in December I decided to become a donor. Two factors swayed me. My brother-in-law received one from his dad; he lasted four and a half years until he died of pneumonia, ... I was very close to him for a brother in law. That was 30 years ago, and it's still in my mind after all these years.

Will you love me in December as you do in May, Will you love me in the good old fashioned way? When my hair has all turned gray, Will you kiss me then and say, That you love me in December as you do in May?

Why people love Music? ^_^

People love music for much the same reason they're drawn to sex, drugs, gambling and delicious food, according to new research. When you listen to tunes that move you, the study found, your brain releases dopamine, a chemical involved in both motivation and addiction.
Even just anticipating the sounds of a composition like Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" or Phish's "You Enjoy Myself" can get the feel-good chemical flowing, found the study, which was the first to make a concrete link between dopamine release and musical pleasure.
The findings offer a biological explanation for why music has been such a major part of major emotional events in cultures around the world since the beginning of human history. Through music, the study also offers new insights into how the human pleasure system works.
"You're following these tunes and anticipating what's going to come next and whether it's going to confirm or surprise you, and all of these little cognitive nuances are what's giving you this amazing pleasure," said Valorie Salimpoor, a neuroscientist at McGill University in Montreal. "The reinforcement or reward happens almost entirely because of dopamine."

Malaysia Champion Again! ^_^

JAKARTA: Malaysia defended its gold medal in the SEA Games football after defeating Indonesia 4-3 through penalty shoot outs in the finals held at Gelora Bung Karno stadium on Monday night. Both teams ended the full 90 minutes game tied at 1-1 and had to go into extra time.

Malaysia wins gold

Malaysia wins gold, Najib tweets congratulations

Malaysia are champions of the Sea Games again!   Baddrol Bakhtiar's winning penalty in a 4-3 shoot-out win ensured Malaysia retained the football gold medal following a tense final against Indonesia at Gelora Bung Karno yesterday.

 After full-time and extra-time ended 1-1, it came down to the lottery of the penalty kicks as goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat's save from Ferdinand Sinaga set Baddrol up for a grand-stand finish.

  The win revived memories of 1979 when Mokhtar Dahari scored the goal which sank Indonesia 1-0 in the Sea Games final in Jakarta, which also happened to be Malaysia's only other back-to-back successes.

An ecstatic coach Ong Kim Swee also   finally revealed his secret pep talk: "They don't respect you, they don't respect our flag, they   don't respect our King and they don't respect your parents. If you allow this to happen, then you are cowards. You must teach them what being Malaysian is all about.

 "We beat them not once but twice in front of their fanatical crowds. We showed them how it is done."

 He added: "It was a tough job in selecting players as we have faced so many injuries but no matter who I picked to  play they gave it their all.

"As a coach  I did not have to tell the players what to do. They already knew the situation so when it came to the penalties, they showed good character and attitude."

  But it did not start well for the Malaysian players, perhaps shell-shocked after the bus carrying them into the stadium was attacked tentatively.

  Indonesia, bidding to end a 20-year gold medal drought in football, started at a furious pace as Fahmi was put to work immediately.

As early as the third minute, Fahmi went low to parry Titus Bonai's pile-driver before coming off his line to deny Andik Vermansyah two minutes later.

  But there was little Fahmi could do with Indonesia's opener in the sixth minute when Gunawan Dwi Cahyo rose high at the back post to nod in a corner.

  To Malaysia's credit they did not fold as Asraruddin Putra Omar had a point-blank header blocked by goalkeeper Kurnia Meiga in the 13th minute.

  Indonesia had a goal disallowed for offside four minutes later before Irfan Fazail wasted an opportunity when his shot was deflected after Kurnia had dropped a harmless-looking cross.

  Malaysia were not to be denied though as Baddrol whipped a cross in which Asraruddin stooped low to head into goal, the ball rolling across the line, in the 35th minute.

  Eight minutes after half-time, Malaysia should have scored on the break but Ahmad Fakri Sarrani went for goal from a tight angle when a teammate was better placed and had his shot saved.  

  Two minutes later Irfan scuffed his attempt from inside the box before Fakri wasted another chance in the 65th minute when he shot wildly after being played in by Baddrol.

  Up at the other end Oktovianus Maniani turned two Malaysian defenders before firing into the side-netting before Baddrol had Kurnia at full-stretch to turn his free-kick away in the 85th minute.

  That forced extra-time when Indonesia again had a goal ruled out for offside as the two tired teams struggled to create chances, leading to penalties.

   Gunawan hit Indonesia's second penalty against the post before Fakri fluffed his. Then came Fahmi's brilliant save before Baddrol ensured Malaysia won the Sea Games football gold for a sixth time.
