I think I haven’t post this yet?
man, such bad memory I have! heeeeeeeeeee~
well, I can always check my older posts but… laziness FTW! lol

anyway, I still haven’t been taking new photos
it’s not that I’ve been staying home; I did went out but hrmmmm… its never the right time for photos – EXCUSES, SHUT IT!

aaaanyway, here is the location for most of my Summer 2011 shots which can be found on my page, Noradila Photography @ FB

that’s just BUSHES!
it was near my place; so I usually went there when I need to do my groceries shopping which is nearby as well 😛
I’d never dive into the bushes if it were in Malaysia – snakes! OMG! 😛

here’s a photo from the bushes above 😛
all the photos of flowers are from that bushes since I had no time to go to proper parks haha

I kind of miss taking photos of the nature
I’m not sure where in Alor Setar with awesome flowers apart from places that sell them haha
would they let me take photos of it without buying a single one? hrmmmmm~
kenyit2 mata, flirt2 sikit boleh pass ke? lol

there’s no butterfly farm here BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

but Alor Setar has nice museums for photoshoot haha
too bad the weather these days ain’t that great

nak amik gambar! nak! nak! nak!!! 😦

oh my~
random post! 😛

What’s your SECRET?

Standard

A few days ago I was asked this question…
How to become as clever as you?

I was speechless
was that a compliment or an insult?
I take that as a compliment; so, thank you for saying that I’m clever
korang rasa macam nak sepak I tak dgn statement I yg xbley blah ni? ekekekeke~

If you think I’m bragging, being so stuck up… seriously that is not my intention
there are things that you are better than me, obviously! 😉

how I wish I’m one of the top 3 geniuses in this world 😛
if I were, I’d try to get a country of my own or owning the world heeeee~ lolamboiiiii bkn main!
too bad I’m not and I’ve met tons of people who are way much better than me; be it in education, skills, life experience etc etc

during my undergraduate years, there is this one guy whom I think is brilliant!
he just graduated last year as he did an integrated master, MEng. I heard that he’s starting his PhD this October in another uni
good for him, I wish him best of luck since he deserves it! 😉

when I first knew him, I found him annoying; but when I got to know him, I got envy of his brain!
he’s not a show off person, well, I don’t think he was showing off; it was more like… he likes to help and teach other people especially when you ask him to explain some stuffs (or when he thought that you seem to need some help)
I’m an ego person, full with pride; so, being taught without I’m asking for it pissed me off lol

we once had this maths assignment during our first year and incidentally, he saw me in the library and joined me to do it together
I’m okay in maths but I easily forget things – including, if you were talking to me, try asking me what I was saying 5 mins ago, I more likely to have forgotten what I was saying lol

anyway, back to the story…
I was flipping through some books and the lecture notes to refresh my memory but him!
oh my goodness! he could solve it within a minute! It wasn’t a hard question, not that easy either
I was pretty much pissed off; why can he do it while I was still trying to refresh my memory?
that totally woke me up; HELLO ADILA? YOU THINK YOU CAN GET GOOD MARKS WHEN THINGS AIN’T AT THE END OF YOUR FINGERTIPS? DEEP TROUBLE, ADILA!

so I was saying something along this line… “Woah! that was fast! you’ve revised that chapter already?”
and… guess what!
he came to classes prepared; read what the lecturers are going to teach in the next class beforehand and revise what has been taught every single night!
hats down! how many people do that? I bet only 1 out of 100 students would do that! – I didn’t either lol once a week was what I did ehe~

I did worked as a teaching assistant before, assisting the 2nd year students in Software Engineering subject
…a lot of students didn’t read the lab sheet beforehand, didn’t try to understand what was required and didn’t bother to try things out
I was once asked to explain what the lab sheet was about to them when they didn’t take the initiative to try it themselves
worse, there were students whom only bother to understand the content of weeks of the lab sheets at the end; when it was nearer to their assignment deadline
is that the attitude to get excellent mark? YOU’RE SO DEAD. PERIOD!
I can’t sit the exams for them, right?

I don’t know about genes or whatnot but I am certain that no one is good in something without putting any effort in it
do you think it’s fair when someone tells that friend of mine, OMG YOU’RE A GENIUS! when the truth, he worked his ass off every single day, cramming things into his brain until he can know things without flipping the books anymore?

if you have the drive, motivation and aim, InsyaAllah you will succeed
if you don’t succeed, that just means you didn’t put enough effort
does it make sense to fail in something when you have worked extremely hard? NO!
…well, things could happen unexpectedly

anyway, I just wanted to show off some graduation photos of my fellow friends that I took in July ehe~
the above story was just as a reminder and advice to those who think that they can’t get good results because they are not born as a genius 😛
this friend of mine is also going into PhD starting this October or was it in January? lol
brilliant guy 😉
and oh, this is not the guy I was talking about previously

btw, the graduation for my uni this year was at Westminster which is so near to the Parliament, London Eye and Westminster Abbey
totally the best location for photos! 😉

here are some photos that I finally had my hands on 😛

and here are some other graduation photos of mine
Noradila Nordin BEng 1st Class Hons
Noradila Nordin Graduation
Dr Dina Nordin MBBS (Lond)

Gerrrrrraduation!

photo above is the Barts graduation today 😉
(hrmmm… I wonder why the colours turn out a bit yucky in here? it looks good in facebook)
I won’t be posting other photos of the graduation as it’s not mine (unless I get the permission to but I don’t think I’d post if up here)
pray hard that I’ll be graduating this December AMEN!

anyway, it been a while since I last take photos of people (DUH!)
I came to realise that candid, event type, is so not what I’m good in
…just when was the last time I took photos during an event? xD lol
I think, the newest was during my sis friend’s engagement
I didn’t get much practice in it so it’s not my strong point

I suppose that I’d only accept individual photoshoot next time since I have confidence in that
I’d do events if I’m just a backup since I don’t want to spoil someone’s event

anyway, I’d be having individual/group photoshoot this Thursday – I think?
my friends of the same department are graduating! w00t!
