Writing the literature review


The literature review:

  • -->familiarizes the reader with the depth, breadth and scope of the research topic;
  • -->defines key concepts;
  • -->establishes the body of knowledge that the research will contribute to.

The purpose of a literature review is not simply to describe or summarise the literature in the field. That would be an annotated bibliography. The literature review is an active process of construction. It involves defining and problematising the field within which you will situate your own research. A literature review involves providing a rationale for your selection of literature, drawing points of comparison or conflict between texts, and providing critical commentary on the selected literature. The aim of the literature review is to persuade the reader that your research is informed, coherent, necessary and innovative.

How is a LITERATURE REVIEW different from an ACADEMIC RESEARCH paper

While the main focus of an academic research paper is to support your own argument, the focus of a literature review is to summarize and synthesize the arguments and ideas of others. The academic research paper also covers a range of sources, but it is usually a select number of sources, because the emphasis is on the argument. Likewise, a literature review can also have an "argument," but it is not as important as covering a number of sources. In short, an academic research paper and a literature review contain some of the same elements. In fact, many academic research papers will contain a literature review section. But it is the aspect of the study (the argument or the sources) that is emphasized that determines what type of document it is.

Andai Ku Tahu lyrics

Andai kutahu
Kapan tiba ajalku
Ku akan memohon
Tuhan tolong panjangkan umurku

Andai kutahu
Kapan tiba masaku
Ku akan memohon
Tuhan jangan Kau ambil nyawaku

Aku takut
Akan semua dosa dosaku
Aku takut
Dosa yang terus membayangiku


Andai kutahu

MalaikatMu kan menjemputku
Izinkan aku
Mengucap kata tobat padaMu

Aku takut
Akan semua dosa dosaku
Aku takut
Dosa yang terus membayangiku

Ampuni aku
Dari segala dosa dosaku

Ampuni aku
Menangisku bertobat padaMu

Aku manusia
Yang takut neraka
Namun aku juga
Tak pantas di surga

Andai kutahu
Kapan tiba ajalku
Izinkan aku
Mengucap kata tobat padaMu

Aku takut
Akan semua dosa dosaku
Aku takut
Dosa yang terus membayangiku

Ampuni aku
Dari segala dosa dosaku
Ampuni aku
Menangisku bertobat padaMu

My Life
December 2008 - April 2009 Semester

For this semester, I am teaching only two subjects which are Sociology and Introduction to Communication and Media Studies. I also supervise 3 groups from final semester students(15 students) for professional project. They have planned to go to ASTRO, HITz FM and Media Prima to do their research. For ASTRO (group K), they will do their research about kids program which is Tom2 Bak. They will study the usage of children in the program and to get points of view from the people who involved directly with the program and public. For HITz FM which is the no.1 english radio station in Malaysia, my students (group J)will do research on how HITz FM maintain their popularity as the radio needs to compete with other good english radio stations in Malaysia. My students will go there to look the strategies that they have been doing and will interview the people there. Finally, the last group (group B) will go to media prima to do a research about the new talk show program which is Ally Talk Show. As it is a new program by Ally itself, my students will observe from the beginning until the end of the program. They will get the participants point of view, the public and also the producer itself which is Ally. The purpose of the research is to enhance the program as it is a new trial by Ally. Actually, I am to excited to help my students doing this research as I also will gain much info and knowledge from this research. Although I have checked their proposal for the third times and not approving it yet, I believe they will do their very best and will gain good experience from it.

I am also doing my second semester for my PHD. For this semester I need to travel to UPM Serdang twice a week which is every monday and Wednesday. The class starts from 6pm to 9pm. I will depart from UiTM at 2pm and arrive back at my home around 11pm. I learn Statistics for Communication by Dr. Jusang and also Research for Communication by Dr. Muaati. I learn a lot from both of them and I am really enjoyed for these classes. I want to share this knowledge with my students in Malacca. Moreover, I have prepared all the materials to do my literature review and already started writing it! It is really challenging as I need to do a lot of reading and need to understand indepth for every article that I read. The supervisor for my PHD is Prof Dr. Hj Musa and two commitee members which are Dr Siti Zobaidah and Dr Jusang Bolong. I really hope can finish it in 2 and a half year (2008 - end of 2010)..

In order to get a better health, I go to jog three times a week in the morning every tuesday until thursday after Subuh prayer. I jog at Rembia Perkasa which is at my taman area. Then, I need to standby to go to class for teaching.. For my ruh and IMAN, I try to recite Quran almost everyday and will try to khatam every 2 semesters. This is the only way for me to get motivated, good health, prosperity in life and bless from Allah.. Alhamdulillah, I managed to read 15 juzuk for last semester. I also plan to learn Tasawuf twice a month at Pengkalan Rama Mosque in town for me to improve my IMAN and personality as a khalifah.

Kursus Asas Pengajaran (KAP) NOV'08

Thursday, December 04, 2008

On the 24th of November 2008, I went to Shah Alam to attend 'Kursus Asas Pengajaran' (KAP) which is organized by ILQAM. I went there with Mr Azmi which is a Science Computer lecturer from Senawang. We stayed at Presscot hotel in Klang. The course took us for 5 days to finish. There, we learnt about objectives of education, integrity, Outcome Based Education (OBE), Teaching with NLP, e-Learning, Learning styles, Micro teaching, Harnessing Creativity in Teaching and Learning and many more. Among the facilitators who taught us and gave the lecture were Dr. Mohd Mustafa, Assct Prof Dr Faizah, Ms Funny Frances Penafort, Ms Ismie Roha, Ms Norlela Samsudin, Datin Dr. Siti Rahayah, Dr Berhanuddin, Dr. Ruksana, Prof Dr. Alam, Prof Sr. Ir Dr. Suhaimi (MU,VC) and Mr. Marzuki Mohamed. The lecture was very interesting and we gain much knowledge / valuable information from it. The best thing by attending this coure was, we met a lot of friends from other UiTM's branches. I managed to get know a few ustads from Kedah, Pinang and Melaka. There, we also watched movies (Quarantine and Quantum of Solace) at night at Jaya Jusco Bukit Raja in Klang! We also had minum2 at midnight and discussed about our teaching experienced at our own places. Hehee.. Mr Azmi and I checked out from hotel on the 29th of November 2008 and went back to Melaka after we had done our mock teaching. (I think everyone did well for his/her presentation). Unfortunately, they also gave us 2 assignments to do and we need to submit it at the end of December. No more cuti2 for us!
p/s: After this, I need to attend Translations Course from 30/11 - 5/12/2008.

Happy Fasting (2008)

Sunday, September 14, 2008

Hadith Abu Hurairah RA, beliau berkata: Rasulullah SAW bersabda: “Telah datang kepada kamu Ramadhan, bulan yang berkah, Allah telah mewajibkan ke atas kamu puasanya, di buka padanya pintu-pintu langit, dan ditutup pada pintu-pintu neraka, dan dibelenggu padanya syaitan, demi Allah padanya terdapat satu malam yang lebih baik daripada seribu bulan, sesiapa yang diharamkan kebaikannnya, maka diharamkan”, dan pada lafaz yang direkodkan oleh Imam Ahmad: “Dibuka padanya pintu-pintu syurga” sebagai ganti kepada “pintu-pintu langit”. (an-Nasai, Ahmad, dan al-Albani mensahihkannya di dalam Sahih Ibn Majah, beliau menyatakan ia “Hasan Sahih”).

Dari Abu Hurairah Radhiallahu ‘anhu, Rasulullah saw bersabda “Semua amalan anak Adam adalah untunya kecuali puasa, kerana puasa itu untukKu dan Aku akan membalasnya, puasa adalah perisai, jika salah seorang sedang berpuasa, janganlah berkata keji dan meninggikan suara, jika ada yang mencercanya atau memeranginya maka ucapkanlah “Aku sedang berpuasa”. Demi Dzat yang jiwa Muhammad berada di tanganNya, sesungguhnya bau mulut orang yang sedang berpuasa adalah lebih wangi di sisi Allah Azzawajalla daripada bau misk. Orang yang berpuasa mempunyai dua kegembiraan, jika berbuka mereka gembira, jika bertemu Rabbnya mereka gembira kerana puasa mereka” Muttafaq Alaih

Kursus Penterjemahan Am

Friday, September 12, 2008

June 26, 2008

On the 23rd of June 2008, 25 lecturers attended the translation course organized by Institut Terjemahan Negara Malaysia (ITNM) in liaison with ILQAM UiTM Melaka. The course actually takes 2 weeks to finish. By attending this course, the participants will get the certificate to become a certified translator. But, we have to take a test to get the certificate to qualify as one. Thanks to our facilitator Dr. Wan Amizah (br je disahkan dpt doktor td dr UKM, congrats doctor!) who has helped a lot during the sessions. We will continue the course in August for another one week during semester break.

Friday: 13 June 2008

I just got an offer letter from Universiti Putra Malaysia to further my study in Doctorate Program with thesis (Mass Communication). The program takes 2 to 5 years time to finish it... For this program, I need to attend the class. For this coming semester in July 2008, I am planning to take Trend and Challenges in Mass Communication class by Prof. Musa and Advanced Communication Theory by Dr. Narimah. The class is on tuesday, which I need to travel to UPM once a week. I might be getting busy starting from next semester as I need to attend the class, do assignment, do presentation and the most crucial part is to teach my beloved students. Luckily, for this semester, I will be teaching the same subjects. Wish me luck to take this challenge which I must go to work and study at the same time, the same thing what I did during my master...

Samsung SGH-E840

June 12, 2008

Today, my sister and i went to Dial @ Fone shop at Terminal Melaka Sentral. There, i bought a new hand phone. The actual price was rm769. After negotiating, i managed to get the price rm699.. Actually, i didnt want to buy a new hand phone. But, as the previous handphone dah selalu rosak dan 2 biji nombor dah hilang, finally, my sister pun dpt meracuni fikiran abangnya to buy a new hand phone. "Thank u so much sis as u have succeeded in persuading me to withdraw my money from the ATM machine and bought a new handphone at that moment"... If not, until now, your brother will still be using that orthodox handphone... hahahaaa...

Induction in Kampung Gajah, Perak (113/08)

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Hello there. It has been a long time i didnt write my blog. This is my first blog for year 2008...

On the 14th of May 2008 until 29th of May, I attended the induction for new lecturers for my batch 2006. There were 108 new lecturers attended the induction and 7 of them were from Melaka. There were a lot of
activities that the lecturers needed to do such as LDK, organizing dinner, sports and a few seminar from morning until night! I was the only lecturer from faculty of communication and media studies. The good thing is, i can get to know many other lecturers from other faculties and from other branches. We learnt a lot during the induction. There, we discussed about general order, budget, income, allowance, rules and regulations as government servant and etc.

We need to pass the exam to become the government servant. Although we were pressured as they gave us only one day to study, we managed to do it well. Thanks to the organizer mr Huzaifah (pengurus pusat latihan) who always supported us during the induction program. Ok, got to go to work now!

Delegates from Brunei Darussalam

Monday, December 24, 2007

Monday, on the 24th of December 2007, the delegates from Brunei visited UiTM Malacca campus for relationship purpose. It was also due to the respond from them as the International Business students have visited them in their country before. I was chosen by Corporate Relations and International department once again to entertain the guests here. Most of the delegates were people from Persatuan Kampung Melayu Islam (PESAKA) in Kampung Tuntung. They had also brought their family members here to look around Malacca. In UiTM, I brought them to look along our new building, showed them our dining hall, mosque, library and finally to the lake. We took a few pictures there as a token for their memories. They were very excited and was overwhelmed. Hehehe... I briefed them about the history of Malacca and told them a little bit about the varieties of culture in Malacca . I also explained to them about the students and faculties here in UiTM Lendu. At mosque, after zohor prayer, I met a few new students. They asked me "Abang dari fakulti mana?" And then I said, "Saya pensyarah dr Fakulti Masscomm", U amek course ape? They said, masscomm. I told them, nanti kita jumpa ek. (nak kena tu panggil sy abg. mwahahahahahhaaa...siap korang!)

At the end of the tour, we exchanged our email, phone number and address as they were very interested to come again here in Melaka. They had also promoted their country and invited me to come there one day. I just simply said, Insyaallah...You'll never know when you'll have the opportunity to travel around.. As our Chief Minister have said, "Visit Melaka means visit Malaysia". I think it is true as everything in Malaysia started from Malacca. This is a very good experience for me to entertain guest from abroad. Luckily, they can speak Malay language and made it easier for me to explain to them clearly. Their language sounded like Sarawakian. I only speak in English if they cannot understand the Malay words that I used to communicate with them..

p/s: tomorrow i need to handle new masscomm students around 120 of them. Then, I have workshop until Friday. It means, no more cuti for me! Next week I am going to start teaching once again until this April 2008.

These 3 days.....

Sunday, December 16, 2007

On the 11th of December 2007,my friends
and I had a meeting with Associate Professor Sabariah at Dewan Kuliah 1. It was about collecting data of poor people in Malacca area. Dr. Hanim (the URDC coordinator) briefed us on how to collect data and how to fill in the form. The total number of poor people that the state government has is about 3250 people. The lecturers need to meet all these poor people and verify the data in a week! My team and I needed to cover in Serka
m area which has more than 230 poor people there. The next day, Mr Fazlul (our new masscomm lecturer) and I started to do the interview with these people. We managed to cover 10 houses in Pantai Tedung area. Most of these poor people are very old and some of them are handicapped. They receive money between rm190 - rm300 only from welfare department every month. It made me realize there are still a lot of unfortunate people outside there who need help and attention from others. I feel sympathize towards them on what they have been through in order to survive. In doing this research, we needed to stop regularly to ask local people how to get to the places. We also tried to get help from Tok Sidang and JKKK to find out their residency area. It was really challenging as we needed to pass through the forest and it was raining heavily at that time! At night, I brought my younger brother and sister to Jaya Jusco to had dinner at Sushi King. After having dinner I hangout with Mr Razif, Mr Ridzuan and Mr Diza at mamak stall until 130pm.

The next day, Mr Fazlul and I only managed to cover 6 houses. We got lost for a few times. I also took this opportunity to see the forest, paddy field, river and so on which I cannot see it in my resident area.
It made me feel very relax and excited too! Actually, we started doing this research at 9am and finished at 6pm. After maghrib, I went to Tesco as I had to go to a friend’s farewell party at Shakey’s Pizza. My friend (Sha) will resign from UiTM tomorrow as she is going to do her master next year. After the celebration, my friends and I went to Pulau Gadong to play futsal. We played futsal for an hour and stopped at 1130pm. Then, my friends and I went to mamak stall and hangout until 1pm.

On the 13th of December 2007,Mr Rushdi, Mr Shahril, Miss Mayu and I went to Faculty Communication and Media Studies in Shah Alam to get the course file, notes and books for next semester. I also met Dr Maria Muda to check my phD proposal as I need to submit to UPM next month. After meeting Dr Maria, I met Assc. Prof Dr Kiranjit Kaur who was my ex-lecturer during my degree and master at UiTM. I chose her as my referee as she had taught me 3 times and we have known each other for 8 years. She encouraged me to do my phD but at the same time she advised me to do phD at UiTM also but I rejected it. (sory Dr. Kiran, I cannot accept it as I had studied in uitm for 7 years since my matrix, degree and master) I want to change my study environment. We went to kopitiam section 7 for lunch. Then we went to Shah Alam Mall to buy unnecessary things. Hehe… Sharp at 5.00 pm, we went back to Malacca and arrived around 6.30pm as we need to continue doing our research tomorrow morning……….

Permanent Head Damage!

Saturday, November 24, 2007

On the 22nd of November 2007, my friends and I went to Tanjung Bidara for picnic. Then, we had lunch in Pengkalan Balak near the beach. After eating, we prayed zohor at the nearest mosque there.. At 2.30 pm, my friend called me as I had meeting with my boss around 3pm. After finished the meeting, my workmates and I departed from UiTM to go to MBO in Ayer Keroh to watch a movie. After watching the movie, we had windows shopping at Jaya Jusco. I went back home after praying maghrib at JJ. Finally I had something to do to release my tension and to feel my free time.

I am planning to do my 'permanent head damage' (pHd) next year. During this semester break, i am preparing my proposal which I tried to combine media and sociology as my research. I am also preparing to present the paper in Bandung, Indonesia at international conference next year. Another research that i am going to do is to study about Nurin's case which I want to look the people point of view through blogs. I dont know either I can do and finish all these research or not. But, I will try my best to make it done. Insyaallah...

Pesta Sungai Melaka 2007

Saturday, November 17, 2007

On the 7th of November 2007, Wednesday : My friends, my parents and I went to Pesta Sungai Melaka which is near bandar melaka at night. I departed from Alor Gajah to take my friends after breakingfast at Hanib Restaurant. Then, we gathered in bachang (my home). We moved to town together with my parents and arrived there around 9.30 pm. Unfortunately only one of my friends and I had a chance to ride the kapal after waiting for 2 hours. But it was really worthless as both of us were really excited riding that kapal. After taking some pictures, we went back home. I sent my friend in Taman Dimensi and I arrived at my home almost at 2.oo am. It was a really tiring and exciting day till I forgot that I needed to mark so many my students' exam paper which i have to submit just another few days.
hahahaaa ^_^v

p/s: Actually, I had finished marking all the exam paper when wrote this journal. Most of them did well for their final...

27 years old, 2007
To all my friends and my beloved students,
thanks for the wishes,thanks for the nice cards,thanks for the celebration parties,
thanks for the cakes and presents,thanks for everything.
I really appreciate it... May Allah bless all of u.

July.... hmmm...

On the 9th of July 2007, my friends and I celebrated my mum's birthday at my house. Before the celebration, my friends and I went to Tesco to buy some food and drinks (KFC and cake). I also bought tudung bawal to give to my mum for her present. Actually, I didnt plan the party. My parents were so happy and surprised on what I did that night. Wish u all the best mum! May Allah bless u with good iman, happiness, good health, prosperity and longevity.

On the same day, it was the first day i started teaching my students after a long final semester break. For this semester, I teach Sociology, Intro to Mass Media and Principle of Public Relations for part 1, 2 and 3 students. For new part one students, welcome to UiTM. ^_^v

On the 25th of July, I watched a movie "Love is Cinta" with my officemate... emm.. not bad. But I dont like the storyline, there was an angel which is not logic and a person who had died, alive!... Just like to see the way they made the film look very touching and a nice environment in Indonesia. As a Malaysian, I don't think people can accept that kind of story. But if it was made in western, I do think people can accept the story. I also had watched "transformer" with my bro this month. But I was sleeping when I was watching the movie as I was so tired... I need to watch it once again next time!

p/s: Last month, I bought a new laptop. I really want to have my own laptop since when i was a student. Finally I have it and I am going to use it for my teaching tool in class. I also bought a very cute house at Rembia Perkasa. I need to deduct my monthly salary a lot for that house. huhuhuuu...

Surah Yasin

Surah Ya-Sin is Known as the Heart of the Qur'an. Listed below are the benefits and virtues of learning and reading this beautiful Surah.

1. The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people' [Bazzar]. (S.Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Tafsir-al-Sabuni Vol.2)

2. The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'Whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur'an ten times.'[Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

3. It has been reported by Aisha (radiAllahu anha) that the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that there is a surah in the Qur'an that intercedes for its reciter and forgive its listener. Know! It is Surah Yasin. It is called 'Mu'amma' in the Torah. It was enquired, what is Mu'amma?

Currently listening to...

Ruang Rindu - Letto

Di daun yang ikut mengalir lembut
terbawa sungai ke ujung mata
dan aku mulai takut terbawa cinta
menghirup rindu yang sesakkan dada

jalanku hampa dan kusentuh dia

terasa hangat oh didalam hati
kupegang erat dan kuhalangi waktu
tak urung jua kulihatnya pergi

tak pernah kuragu dan slalu kuingat
kerlingan matamu dan sentuhan hangat
ku saat itu mencari makna
tumbuhkan rasa yg sesakkan dada

reff :kau datang dan pergi oh begitu saja
smua kutrima apa adanya
mata terpejam dan hati menggumam
di ruang rindu kita bertemu

Visiting Oldfolks (Rumah Kenangan)

Thursday, on 10th of May 2007 (23 Rabiulakhir 1428), I went to Rumah Kenangan in Cheng with mr Antashah and few of students from uitm. There, we had a heart to heart conversation with them. I felt so pity to them as most of them have family (children, brothers and sisters) who were not willing to take care of them. Some of them volunteered to come here just to make sure their children (husband and wife) didn't get trouble with them. If they are lucky, their family members will visit them once in a month. But most of them are still waiting for their family members to visit them although they know that they will never ever come here to visit them.

My questions are, what is happening to our society now? Do they realized that they are doing something that can hurt them so much! Always make them feel so lonely, sad, useless and feel so pressure with the situation they are facing now! Do their children know that these elder people had sacrificed a lot to make sure that their children will be somebody or at least have a life? Did they forget that who are they now is because of them?

These people who are ignoring their parents (elder people) should not live in this world. They don't even feel that they have responsibilities towards them. I really hope one day, their children will make the same thing towards them. Actually, i really like the petronas advertisement during last time raya 2006. It has a good moral value. I still remember the phrase, "abah jgn lupa pakai lampin tau". What u did to your parents, one day, your children will do the same thing to you.

As a sociology lecturer, I always discus about this issue. I always remind them to remember their responsibility as children towards their parents. Some of my students has done this research to study in details about the problems. They have done their observation, interviewed them and given questionnaires to the public.

I also always think what will happen to our society for another 10 years from now? I am really sure they are becoming more advance, liberal, open minded and more success. But, how about in term of their attitudes and ethics? Are they becoming better? You think about it...

p/s: after that, we went to Pengkalan Balak beach for breakingfast and celebrated mr antashah and his student birthday. Thank you for inviting me. I am really appreciate it.

What did I do today?

-helping my mother cooked before going to university.
-taking my friend from his home for breakfast (just accompanying him for drink) early in the morning at Water Lily, Medan Selera.
-marking my students final exam paper at my office.
-monitoring (*skodeng) my friend who was invigilating at LL. hehe..
-meeting with masscomm dean and program coordinator from Shah Alam at director's meeting room. (a few of them!!!)
-entertaining the guests from Shah Alam by showing them all UiTM Melaka area such as new building and new facilities here.
-visiting one of my friends' child at Melaka General Hospital in the evening. Pity him...
-bringing a few of my officemates to Mamak stall near to my house for high tea.
-jogging with my parents and doing aerobic at Stadium Tun Fatimah
-writing a blog now!
-calling/chatting with my bestfriend.

Delegates from Saudi Arabia "Ahlan Wasahlan"

Saturday, 5th of May 2007, the delegates from Saudi Arabia visited UiTM Malacca campus for academic purpose. I was chosen by Corporate Relations department to entertain the guest here. Most of the delegates are master students who are studying here in Malaysia. They also brought their family members here to look around Malacca. At UiTM, I brought them to our new building, showed them our dining hall, mosque, library and lake. They were very excited. Hehehe... I also gave briefing to them about Malacca history and storied to them a little bit about Malacca culture. I am so expert for this as I am teaching sociology subject, and I explain to them in depth about Baba and Nyonya here in Malacca. Then, we moved to town. I showed them to our UiTM city campus in town. We went to level 16 at City Campus. Once again they felt so excited as they can see the whole town and sea from there. Actually, that also was the first time for me went to level 16 at city campus. I also felt the same thing. huhuhu... Level 16 is a room for UiTM director, Dr Mizan. The room is very nice. Lastly, I brought them to the biggest shopping complex in Malacca, Dataran Pahlawan in Bandar Hilir. We took few pictures there, said good bye and left them there for shopping. I know they will buy a lot of things and hopefully they will enjoy shopping there. This is a very good experience for me to entertain guest from abroad. Fuuhh... that's all. -end-

Yesterday (The Beatles)

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they\'re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I\'m not half the man I used to be
There\'s a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, I yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go
I don\'t know she wouldn\'t say

I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go
I don\'t know she wouldn\'t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

Picnic at Pantai Puteri...^o^ hohoho

Yesterday, on 28th of April 2007 (Saturday), a few of my friends and I went to picnic at Pantai Puteri in Sungai Udang, Malacca. We departed from Alor Gajah at 10am. It took us almost 40 minutes to arrive there. There, we brought our own food such as curry puff, spaghetti mi, mee hun, junk food, some drinks and other necessary stuff such as dam, pillow and a ball. We swam happily more than half an hour. This is because, I have not been at sea/beach for quite some times!.... huhuhu... Then, we played dam ular (snake and ladder game) for another half an hour. I won for the second place. Yippie!!! We ate there during lunch hour. Luckily, the guys didn't need to prepare the food. The food was prepared by ain, poche and mil. My friends ajib, azam and naza just bought food at Tesco last night. Hahahaa... Is it fair? The place was quite nice and peaceful. There were a lot of family members brought their kids there. I felt so relax and relief a lot after struggling marking my students' assignments and facing a lot of obstacles in life..hua hua hua... Ok la, I am going to sleep now. Good nite.... -_-zzz

p/s: Tomorrow on Sunday, I need to invigilate Diploma Pentadbiran Awam students (part 4) at 9am but need to be at uitm at 8am -_-; fuuuh... so tired maaa..

UiTM Sports Day

Friday, 20th of April 2007, surprisingly my futsal team (AGOI) the combination between masscomm lecturers and english lecturers won the futsal game. At the first round , we defeated pak guard team 3-0. Then we got draw when competing lecturers from faculty of business 1-1. The next rounds, we won all the games by defeating Faculty of Art and Design 4-1, Library Department 2-1 and at final match, which we continued at night, we won against Maintenance department for 4-2. The total of futsal teams that participated were 8 teams. We played 5 games which 4 wins and 1 draw. We were also surprised as Dr Mizan (pengarah) also came during the game to support all the team players. Congratulations to all my team members. Although we didn't really prepare for the games, yet we still can win because of the high spirit of team work. Well done!

p/s: we played just for fun. I was really excited and enjoyed the game so much! \^o^/

T_T .......jogging !!!

Today, once again I went to jog with my father. This time, I managed to make 3 rounds! Mwahahahaaa... After jogging, I did aerobic for 15 minutes. There, at Stadium Tun Fatimah, they provide the fasilitator for aerobic three times a week which are on monday, thursday and friday. The conclusion is, I am ready to play futsal tomorrow with a very high spirit. Jeng...jeng...jeng... U just wait!

Walking or Jogging ???

Today, after doing some works at my office, i decided to go to jog. Actually, i decided to go to jog yesterday, but unfortunately, I had a meeting with pengarah until 6.00pm!! Finally, i have time to go to jog at Tun Fatimah Stadium near to Malacca town. I went there at 6.15pm with my beloved father. The place is very nice. I managed to jog for 2 rounds only. I felt very tired and exhausted. Most of the time, I just walked there..hehe.. It only took 40minutes je to jog there. I also tried to take some pictures there but unfortunately, my hand phone battery was very low. Next time, I will take few pictures and put them at my blog. Mwahahahaaa...

I also realized that my stamina is very low. Last time, when I played Futsal with my students during Fesscomm Day, I only can stand for 10 minutes only! That's why the lecturers lost when competing with their students. No doubt about it! We played just for fun ok. "Kasi can kat korang menang" :)This coming Friday, I still have another Futsal competition among academic and non-academic staff in uitm. So, I must start training now to improve my stamina. huhuhu... Starting from today, I will try to jog at least three times a week. I want jogging, to be part of my habits. Thanks abah for accompanying me to jog today. I really appreciate it!!!

Marking Time !!! chaiyo x2!

I just feel want to write something... Actually, i have just arrived at my home. Last two days, I visited my grandparents in Gombak. Alhamdulillah, both of them looked very healthy. I also went to Jaya Jusco at Wangsa Maju for window shopping and ate at KFC with my aunty and causin. I didnt have friends at my grandparents house area. So, i just spent my whole time with my family members.

Starting from tomorrow is a study week for uitm students. Study week for students means marking week for lecturers. I still have a lot of assignments to mark. I have done marking for Sociology and Mass Media subjects. Except for fundamental critical thinking and writing subject, i still have a lot to check. This is because, this subject has no final exam. But yet, there are a lot of case studies, journals and other writing assignments that students need to do. Hopefully my students have done well for their assignments.

After marking all these assignments, i need to invigilate students examination. I heard that i need to invigilate students at UiTM Bandar campus as i stay in town. So, for those students who want to see me, make sure u make an appointment with me first. Lastly, insyaallah I will let u know your on going assessments by next week.regards,mr rauf 16.4.2007 / sunday / 9pm ^_^p/s: i feel so bored staying at home. cant wait to go to office 2moro and do some works. hehe...

When I saw you standing there

I bout fell out my chair
And when you moved your mouth to speak
I felt the blood go to my feet.

Now it took time for me to know
what you tried so not to show
Now something in my soul just cries
I see the want in your blue eyes.

Baby, I'd love you to want me
The way that I want you
The way that it should be
Baby, you'd love me to want you
The way that I want to
If you'd only let it be.

You told yourself years ago
You'd never let your feeling show
The obligation that you made
For the title that they gave.

FessComm 2007 ^_^v

On 8 of April 2007, once again, KOMED from Malacca organized one big event for mass communication students. It was held at Padang Kawad, UiTM Malacca campus. The event started at 10 a.m which was a little bit late.Game_b It was officiating by the Coordinator Progam, Puan Noraini Yusof. Some of the games that KOMED organized are Battle of the bands, Masscomm idol, Futsal, Freak Factor, Sukaneka and etc. All the masscomm lecturers came on that day. Unfortunately, not all masscomm students attended during the event. We had so much fun during the event. I also participated some games with the students. I really hope this activity will make the students' relationship between part 1 and part 2 and between students and lecturers become much more closer. Congratulations to all KOMED members as they have succeeded organizing this event. Hopefully this event will be held for every semester.
