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."
