Haish... Anak...anak... Sekali kena diarrhea.. Tau pulak nak suruh mama peluk masa tengah sakit perut nak berak.. Hehe.. But anyway, my mama said, it's normal that she wants to try other food at this age.. Sooner or later, memang dia akan nasi dengan sambal belacan jugak.. Haha.. Tak ape la, ajar sikit-sikit..
Lagi satu, just like at home, she likes to 'tom' the teachers jugak! Aiyo.. 'Tom' teacher to playground, 'tom' teacher to tv room.. They have slot for tv watching in certain time, if I'm not mistaken, 3 times a week.. The teachers pasang la ABC show, or some educational show for the kids to watch.. Tuh yg Fatin suka sangat tuh.. 'Tom wiwi', 'tom wiwi' katanya.. Translation 'Jom tv..'.. Hehehe.. Kat rumah pon, memang I always play some nursery rhymes videos on, like Twinkle2 Little Star, Old MacDonald, etc for her to watch.. Siap la dia menari terkedek-kedek tuh kang.. Hehe..

It's 1am in the morning.. So, this entry gonna be wordless..
Gonna put up some pics from Fatin's expedition in knowing the world.. *world la sangat...*
Haha.. Actually, I tak dan nak update banyak citer pasal Fatin. So, saje la nak letak some pics on her jalan-jalan day.. Here are the pics of her journey knowing animals..
We went to Butterfly Park in Penang the other day.. *Dah lama sebenarnya.. Sometime around April. Maleh nak citer.. Pemaleh sungguh...*
Then later, on Wesak Day, we brought her to Zoo Negara..
Then last Wednesday we brought her to Taman Burung Kl plak.. * Err...tapi nih lom ada picas.. Nanti I update.. Hahaha...*
K lah...Till next time... Wassalam...

Pekabo? I hope everyone is in marvelous condition, Amin.. Alhamdulillah, again, we are awarded another opportunity to breath in this world today..
First thing of all, I would like to ask u'olls, are you familiar with the world 'local'? It's not local = tempatan tau.. When I was a child, I did used this word a lot. 'Local' in this case, meaning 'not original'. I dunno how did that idea popped out during my childhood days, but my friends and I were using it a lot and confident gila maksud dia betul.. For instance, a friend bought a new Nike cap, and we were all like, 'Eh, ori ke local nih?'.. Hehehe.. Maknanya, betul ke Nike original punya, or pelesu punya.. Tapi kinda of weird kan when 'local' was used instead of 'fake'? *Mungkin those children who used proper English at that time referred it as 'fake' instead.. Hihihi...*
So, my entry today is about fake petrol.. Or not original petrol..
A few weeks back, my family and I were having dinner at home.. Suddenly Ayah said not to fill in petrol at Greenwood Shell petrol station. He heard from his surau-geng that, that petrol station is cheating on the quality of the petrol. They added kerosene inside the tank instead of pure petrol.. We were like, "Heh, takkan la kot...".. Ayah said, some of his friends' friend saw the staffs was doing it.. Still, the story was quite hard to believe.. I mean, a lot of questions, one of it, camana the Ayah's friends' friend tuh tau that it was kerosene that was added inside? Kan?
Actually, my sister and I are considered as regular customer la kat petrol station tuh.. Since it is just nearby our house, and we are Shell petrol user.. *Hubby said comparing all of the stations, Shell's petrol is the most economic. Sebab leh jalan more kilometer.. Guess it's true..*.. Ayah memang pengguna Petronas tegar..
So masa tuh, I tak amik port sangat la.. But somehow, after that, I baru teringat, that lately, cik Myvi I performed quite not well.. Macam lambat pick up.. I press accelerator dah jauh baru tukar gear.. *Cik Myvi kan auto.. Tekan minyak je.. Hehehe...* I thought, it's nothing. Just cik kak tuh dah due for service.. Bila dipikir-pikir balik, hmm..., mungkin kah effect daripada petrol campuran kerosene itu?
And coincidentally, about the same time gak, my sissy's car pon facing the same prob. Lagi lah teruk, mengaum-ngaum tapi gear tak automatically changed... Dah la she travels quite far everyday. Ulang alik to Shah Alam nu.. So, dangerous gak la kan? Ada seminggu tuh sampai kena pinjam kete lain la dia pi uni.. Ayah dah siap bawak pi workshop. mechanic kata, gear box dah out.. Nak ganti memang makan at least 5 riban.. So Ayah hold the decision, bawak balik umah dulu.. Dalam masa tengah memikir-mikir tuh, tetiba jadi ok balik.. Smooth je.. Hahaha.. Masa tuh memang pelik bin ajaib.. But maybe, petrol dah ran out, so ayah isi petrol len selain Shell di tempat berkenaan, tuh yg jadi ok balik..
Then bila we sat together satu family, we discussed bout this issue again. Ayah pon kata, at one time *not very long la..*, dia isi minyak kat situ, then Perdana tuh pon showing same symptom *Cehh, macam penyakit plak nye.. Gune perkataan symptom.. Hehe..*, lepas dia tukar balik to Petronas, things were better..
Hmm..., takkan la semua kebetulan.. All 3 cars had the same problem.. Bleh jadi pasal petrol.. I'm not quite sure if my brothers' faced the same problem too.. Tapi depa pny kete manual.. Tak tau la perasan ke dak.. Kami yg pakai auto nih yg terasa ketidak-pick-up-an nye.. *perkataan apakah ini? Hahaha...*
So since then, we decided to change to Petronas.. Tak taula it's just psychology ke hape, but I did feel the different la.. Kembali pick up.. Haha.. However, I tak nak la accused without strong proof.. This is just based on our experience.. Maybe coincident *but we think it is not...*..
Therefore, friends, out there, just be extra careful and cautious... It is not impossible that there are some parties who decided to cheat to gain extra profit. And unluckily the victim is us, the end-user.. As for me and family, we decided not to take the risk anymore.. Kami sudah bertukar ke Petronas pula.. Hehe.. Oh ya, maybe it just that particular petrol station yg practiced that unethical act, however, we just want to be in the safe side.. Tukar terus.. Hihihi..
K lah, that's all.. I'm sorry for cerita yg berterabur and huru-hara.. Rasa macam kelam-kabut je entry kali nih.. Wakaka..
Till next time u'olls... Wassalam..

Today, I'm back at the lab.. As usual, berpura-pura rajin buat project.. Hihihi.. Hadoi.. Why la!! I'm so lazy reading all these journals.. Suka cam ni tau.. Kang last minute, baru kelam-kabut.. Farah, I warn you, you better work hard!! You know you are not good *at all* in this project thingy... Berusaha dengan gigih!!! Yoshhh...
Btw, let me tell u'olls a bit bout my master's project.. Which I'm going to write thesis bout it.. The title is 'Development of vision-based sensory system of Quadruped walking robot'. Ha..., amik ko.. Panjang noo... Hihihi..
Basically, what am I going to do is the vision system that acts as sensory system for the robot. Oh, what is quadruped? Quadruped meaning 4-legged. So Quadruped walking robot refers to 4-legged walking robot.. Like Sony Aibo, the cute doggie robot..
Actually, there's a lot of this that has been developed. So, now, I have to specify my research element out of it.. In what particular scope that I want to focus in.. Currently, I have 2 in mind.. One is the how effective the vision system sensory system, combined with some control algorithm, maybe something intelligent like neural Network or Fuzzy, to do the path-planning...
Meaning, let say, the robot is set to walk from point A to point B, but, the middle of the path, there are obstacles, so, how does the system deal with the obstacles and get back to the track. So, to show the efficiency, the result could be the distance variation between the original route with the deviated route. The smaller the difference is, portrays that the more efficient the system is.. Or maybe I can investigate the power consumption instead. Finding the algorithm to do path-planning with the lowest energy consumption..
The other scope is to tackle the vibration problem caused by the walking mechanism. Robots are not like living creatures. when it walks, there will be a lot of vibration. and since I decided to use vision system, i.e : camera system, there will definitely be effects to my images. Ye lah, goyang-goyang, gambar pon jadi tak clean la.. Consequently it will effect the efficiency of the vision system to act as a sensory system la to the robot.. That will be the research element la... Based on discussion with my supervisor (SV), co-SV and my colleagues
*sangat-sangat thankful to them sebab banyak membantu I yg agak lembab nih.. Hehehe..*
, to solve this, I basically need to study human eyes anatomy. Even though we are walking, even running, the vision is never shaking and blur.. Kan? Kan?
*Subhanallah, all praise to the Most Brilliant Creator, Allah.... :)*
Some readings and again.., discussions, I guess I need some sort of smart platform to place the camera on, that is able to absorb the vibration and reduce the shaking-effect to the camera.. The idea is to mimicked the muscles that hold our eye balls.. And of course I need the image processing algorithm that can restore the degraded image..
*Errr..., kalo korang tak paham, buat-buat angguk je la, macam paham ye... Hahaha... Izinkan la yours truly nak eksen 'terel' citer pasal project yg tak seberapa tuh kat blog nih.. Wakakaka...*
So, tuh la some info on my project... Hopefully I can successfully get it done on time.. Oh, why I chose vision system at the 1st place? Sebab I memang minat in image processing.. In fact last sem pon I took one subject from other department *ECE department..* on Image Processing and Computer Vision.. Seronok belajar mendalah ni.. Harap-harap, it will become 'beronok-ronok' *jama' term for se'ronok'.. Hahaha..* when I get to do the hands-on part of it.. :) Amin..
K lah... Think that's all I wanna share today..
Btw.., u'olls..., KUNGFU PANDA 2 is SOOOOOO AWESOME!!!! Sape lom tengok, boleh la pi tengok.. Sapa tak plan nak tengok movie, jangan lupa carik DVD nanti.. Sangat best ok.. Memang super funny and super creative and superb serba-serbi.. Hubby & I enjoyed our selves throughout the show.. Ketawa terbahak-bahak tanpa segan silu.. Kihkihkih...
Ok.., till next time u'olls.. Good day..

Yay, yay.. esok nak dating.. Hahaha.. *Macam tak ada menda lain yg nak di'yay-yay' kan..*.. But honestly u'olls, lately I'm so excited of having a movie date wif enche suami.. Just the two of us, berjimba-jimba *learned this word from my dearie cuzzy, Ieka Zakaria.. Don't rili know the exact meaning, but I guess maksudnya bersuka-ria kot! Haha..*
Ohh, tapi tetap kesian dengan si tecit kena tinggal at school while her parents having fun watching movie.. Abih camano, kang den angkut budak tecit tuh masuk cinema, org lain baling botol lak kat den laki bini sebab si tecit lak jadi primadona wat filem sendiri dalam tuh.. Hihihi..
Speaking about dating nih, hmm, tomorrow's date going to be our 3rd date.. We are going to watch Kungfu Panda 2.. I heard the movie is super funny.. Tak sabar..
Actually, since Fatin was born, we rarely, no.., in fact we never got chance to date like before... Berdua-duaan.. Usually, I was the one yang refuse to, sebab rasa tak sampai hati nak tinggalkan Fatin.. Plus, before this, Fatin was taken care at home. Jadi, rasa macam kejam lak tinggalkan our daughter to my family while we both having fun outside.. So the plan was never succeed.
Then when Fatin was 9 months, she entered Educare. Things were a little bit easy la.. Tapi, I was busy with classes, assignments, quizzes, exams and etc la.. So no time to 'berjimba-jimba' dengan Enche's Suami..
Now.., that I have finished my courses *I've started my research.. I'll tell u'olls bout my project next time k!*, and Fatin is now 1 year and 3months old *dah agak dewasa..hehe* so, we agreed to make time for Abang-B session.. Hihihi.. Here we are, going to have our 3rd date tomorrow..
And I have to say, date after married is much fun before date before married. And date, after becoming a parent, is better than date as a couple without children.. Reason being? Because..., we tend to cherish each second and moment together that we have to willingly-sacrifice for our lil one..
Ye lah, once we have children, the attention will mostly goes to the children.. Bukan lah tak amik berat pasal the spouse, but I would say, kita akan bersama-sama lebih memberi perhatian kepada anakanda.. So, once in a while, dapat pay and get FULL attention from the bapak, seronok gak kan? Hahaha.. *merapu...*
So ok lah pe'merapu'an for today... Till next time u'olls.. Good day and Wassalam..

p/s - This post is actually written petang tadi.. But since UIA's/only my lab's network was down, no internet connection, so, baru dapat post malam nih.. Hehehe...
Hey, me again.. I’m suppose to read a bunch of journals that were given my dearest supervisor.. But I am SOOOOO DARN LAZYYYY… Hadoi… *Sighing like I never been lazy before… Duhhh!!.. Hehe.. *
So.., since I’m not in the mood to read rite now, so I choose to write instead. Hehe.. Ok kan, my reason of act?? Brilliant! Hehehe..
Today, I would like to write bout the Nur Kasih The Movie.. I mentioned in my previous post, that this movie is in must-watch-list.. And I planned to watch it with my beloved mama.. And YES, we did it!! Hehehe.. Last 2 weeks, my Mama and I went to TGV Wangsa Walk to watch Nur Kasih The movie.. Yeay.. It was fun!! Sebab dah lama tak watch movie ngan Mama.. I think the last time I went to cinema wif Mama was for Batman Return kot.. Lama sangat dah.. Tuh pon, with the whole family.. So technically, this is our 1st cinema date.. Nice!!!
Korang dah tengok dah movie tersebut? What do you guys think? Hehehe.. Ok, personally, I think, that movie is good.. However, it is not as excellent as the series.. Still, Nur Kasih series tatap menjadi pujaan hati ku.. There was too much tests and obstacles for Nur and Adam.. And, I think, there’s too much to tell in the movie, but the time is not enuf, jadi, they tend to cut the story short, make it, unelaborated. This is my personal opinion la..
Nonetheless, I still cried agak dasat at certain scene.. *Pssttt.., Mama sampai pow my tissue tuh sebab tissue dia abih.. Hehehe…*. The most heartrending scene is the conversation between Adam & his mother after he finally gave up and decided to go back to kampung. Oh.., he was sick by the way (for those who haven’t watch it or not planning to watch it.. Hihihi). So Adam was asking for his mother forgiveness and mintak halal makan minum sume la.. Ye la, he was a bad son at one time.. So the things that his mother said really made me sobbed.. I don’t really hafal the script la, but, it sounds something like this..
“Adam tak ada dosa dengan mak. Kalo pon ada Adam berkasar dengan mak, kecikkan hati mak, masa tuh jugak mak ampunkan Adam. Itu tugas mak, untuk ampunkan dan restukan anak-anak.. Mak tak nak anak-anak mak derhaka pada mak dan tak sempat mintak ampun pada mak.. Sebab tuh mak ampunkan siap-siap…”
Huhuhuhu… So…..sad… Reminded me of someone.. Masa nih mmg both of us crying sampai hingus-hingus la.. Hahaha.. I think everybody in the theatre kot.. Oh silap-silap.. There was a man, who sat one seat next to me, dia tidur while his wife/girlfriend tengah nangis.. *I sempat lagi dok sibuk hal orang tuh! Hahaha..*
The rest was ok la.. But the ending is.., hmm.., I think, confusing.. I dunno, maybe the director intentionally wanted the audience to predict the ending… I dunno whether it’s only me and mama yg macam tercengang-cengang with the ending, but, memang ada question mark la! Sebenarnya Adam meninggal masa tua ke masa muda tuh? Confused! Hahaha..
Satu lagi, macam agak tak puas hati, sebab finally, after what she has been thru, she got Alzheimer?? I mean, the she is Nur.. Tak best la gitu… Sebab Nur that I know (of coz from the series la..) is a tough and strong-hearted woman.. Takkan la lepas Adam meninggal, she lost herself? Haha… *Ehh, banyak sangat cerita, pi la direct sendiri!! Hehehe…*
But as a whole, the movie is satisfying and worth it! Tak nyesal tengok.. The video quality is superb.. Very nice..
And one more thing that I adore much in the movie is the moral value.. In the movie, Adam & Nur opened, something like rumah kebajikan where the teenagers, spoiled teenagers to be exact can come and learn Islam. And there was a scene where Adam invited an Ustaz to be a speaker to the teens.. When the Ustaz arrived, he suddenly refused to be the speaker, looking at the condition of the teens.. The girls were not covering the aurah, the boys and the girls sitting next to each other.. Pendek kata, tak ‘Islamic-environment’ lah..
So Adam was trying to tell the Ustaz that these teens, deserve a chance.. They were jahil, not in the know! So they need guidance who can show them, what is right and what is wrong. And to let them attracted to Islam way of life, we can’t force them, we have to show love and care to them… TANG! I say, the movie NAILS IT!!! I totally agree with the argument! Sangat correct!
Islam is not ONLY for the ustaz and ustazah.. Islam is not ONLY for those you stays in the masjid.. Islam is not ONLY for those who already knows Islam.. Islam is not ONLY for those who are already in the correct path!
Islam is for all.. And every human being on this earth deserve a chance to know Islam.. And we all, who have a little bit of knowledge about Islam, should NOT be skeptical to those who are not as lucky as we are.. Tak boleh pandang serong.. Tak boleh anggap diorang tak guna.. The very least, we pray for them, that someday, they will find the light…
I memang respect the script writer.. I think she did research and she really understand the very basic of Islamic muamalat..
Guess that’s is for Nur Kasih The movie review.. Of course this is only my personal view.. Haha.. If you ask me, out of 5stars, I give 4 stars for Nur Kasih The Movie..
Ok, that’s all.. Till next time.. Bye…
Wassup, wassup? Hope u'olls are in great health and condition. Let us all be thankful to Allah who has granted us another beautiful day to live.. Alhamdulillah..
Ok, today I wanna share something bout touching.. Ar, ar, ar.., don't get me wrong, touching bukan sebarang touching, tapi, touching the screen... Hehehe... *bajet suspen la.. Kehkehkeh..*
As we all are very much aware that the touch screen technology is very much utilized nowadays. Especially in mobile technology.. Skang mana main tekan-tekan butang tersembul.. Apa barang.. Skang main touch-touch je...
Ohh, sila tahu, I am among the 'out-dated' who is still using the tekan-tekan butang tersembul tuh.. Hahaha.. Yeah.., memang pathetic.. But it's okay, as long as I can still make a call and sms and amik gamba buah hati I si tecit tuh, and etc, syukur Alhamdulillah... :) Pakai tepon canggih pon, kalo untuk anakanda tercinta celup dalam bubur dia, tak guna gak tak...
*Silalah percaya.., she did dipped my dearest phone in her porridge bowl.. Kesian, Sony Ericson W705 I makan bubur juge.. Hukhukhuk.. Bertabahlah wahai handphone...*
Actually, tadi I surfed on Nokia website. Saje..., gatal-gatal.. Haha.. In case Sony Ericson W705 can't hold the penderaan by Fatin Amani anymore, at least I have some model in mind utk dibeli.. Hehehe... So tetibe rasa nak tau about this touch screen technology... Then I google la 'touch screen phone technology' and got me to this interesting page..
Oh.., rupa-rupanya, this touch screen technology is categorized into 3.. Resistive, Capacitive and Infra-red..
Resistive is the most common one. It's cheaper in price. The concept is simple. The screen is built in 2 layers.. In the middle, there are something called spacer dots that restraining the layers from touching each other without the presence of pressure. So when there is pressure, the circuit is completed and the current flows.. Usually, this resistive method does not offer multi-touch function..
The second one is capacitive method. This one just use 1 layer that covered with electro-conductive material.. Pros, allows multi-touch, and more durable as compared to resistive. However, it is higher in price and we can't simply touch it with everything, for instance, with glove.. Reason being? Current tak leh flow.. Glove kan insulator..
Last skali is infra-red. This is the most hi-tech one la for the time being. There is not much phone's model that using this technology. Coz the price different from the other 2 is very the banyak.. But the advantage over the others are, it can be touched by everything, and most durable...
So, tuh la some info that I wanna share wif u'olls today.. At least we've got some ideas on what type of touch screen we want suitable with our budget kan? Hehehe.. Nanti nak beli phone, jangan lupa tanya apek yg jual tuh, nih guna resistive ke capacitive ke infra-red.. Hahaha...
K u'olls.. C ya'..
Eh btw, if let say, suatu hari I nak beli phone.. This is going to be my choice...
Smart tak? Nokia C6-01.. Nak beli smartphone canggih-canggih macam Sony Ericson Xperia X10, IPhone 4, HTC, or Samsung Galaxy S2 tak mampu..., yg nih pon ok la.. Hahaha... Mengukur baju di badan sendiri.. Hehehe...
Ok... Bye... Take care and have a good day... :)

I was blogwalking just now and something just caught my attention.. This 'Networked Blogs' thingy... Actually, I've seen this quite some times in my friends blog., but I just ignored it. *IYo..den yo yg ketinggalan zaman.. Tak tau mendalah nih utk apa...*
Dunno why, I feel like trying it out tonite.. *hahaha..,gelakkan diri sendiri,,!*
So just created it and linked it to my fb account.. But the fact is, I dunno how is this thing functioning and camano den monitor... Hahaha...
Whatever!! Hantam saja lah labu... Just give it a try lah! Esok-esok ada time, I explore lagi.. Hahaha...
To u'olls who are expert in this thing, hope you can share some info... hehehe... :)
Ok, bye.. Nite all.. Wassalam..
Budak ngengada ini is back!!! Hehehe.. *Bajet ada org tunggu la...*
Alhamdulillah, now things are in better shape.. Actually, my situation, to be exact is in better condition.. Though it is not 100% settled, but, InsyaAllah, it will, as time flies...
Moral of the story of what happened is, bergantunglah hanya kepada Allah.. kerana Allah tak pernah mengecewakan.. 'Iyya kana' budu wa iyya kanas ta'in' = 'Kepada Mu kami sembah, dan kepada Mu kami memohon pertolongan'...
So InsyaAllah.. Lepas nih I akan update story.. *err...subject kepada kerajinan juga..* Hehehe...
C ya all around... Wassalam....
