Arrived

After a long travel back to Malaysia, I finally arrived at my house around 5:30 AM, July 3rd. Then on the same day, my mother and I drove to Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) to meet with a professor (who is also the Timbalan Dekan). Upon meeting him, he asked about what happened. 

What surprised my mom is how nice he was (somehow living in the US made me expect everyone to be nice like that haha). He didn't ask too many questions, and he is being very simple and direct. Then he told us on the documents that I need to give him, and that's about it. He also said that the chances of me getting into UKM are okay, and he will help in any way possible. 

I am happy that I can take Mathematics course. My mom, she couldn't be any happier. I like it when Professor Shahidan said that Mathematics is the basic of almost everything, and the career opportunity is very broad. I have a few careers that I would like to try, but that can wait. For now, I really hope that I can be enrolled in UKM, taking Mathematics course. 

I am very happy that almost everyone around me is very supportive to me. My family and friends especially, never said anything like "you're a loser" or something. Thank you everyone, I am very thankful that all of you are very open-minded and very supportive. If you are in Malaysia, let's meet! If you are still in the States or not in Malaysia, let us meet again somewhere in the future.

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Finally, I reached Disc 2 in FFVIII. Still on the way to rescue Squall from the torture room. Speaking of Squall, remember the time where he was stabbed by icicle spear from Edea? There's an interesting theory where Squall was already dead at that time (Aerith died after being stabbed by Sephiroth's Masamune once, too). Everything that happened after that was, you guess it, just a dream. Click here if you want to read the full theory.

EDIT: One theory also states that Square had some other plan for Aerith. Here's the link.

Let say this theory is true. During the start of Disc 2, we were brought to the dream of Laguna. So it is a dream, inside a dream. Looks like Square had done it way before Christopher Nolan's Inception!

*ehem* anyway, most fan's theory are awesome to read. But no one can truly justify and give best explaination on where the hell do Necron in Final Fantasy IX came from. There were no hints or whatsoever about him, and suddenly he appeare…

My Essay About Globalization and Video Games

This is my essay for the English 117, but I edited some of it so it is not totally the same as the real one. It may not be as good as you expect, but do read and comment if you have time. Thanks!
Globalization: Among Video Games and Its AudienceGlobalization is an ongoing processof increasing theconnectivityand interdependence of the world'smarketsand businesses. Globalization had its effects towards the industries among the world, including the gaming industry. Throughout the years, globalization had affected the video game industry, positively and negatively. In my opinion, globalization had made video games to give more positive impact to the audiences worldwide. Distribution of video games internationally and connection among worldwide players online are the effects of globalization on audiences of video games. Video games are distributed all around the world because it proves more benefit. Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 are some of the consoles that making its way to the global m…
