Okay, a few reminders so that I don't stall the engine again.

1. When coming to a temporary stop, press the brake gently, then on the clutch, only then fully brake.

2. If the handbrake is used, to move again, press the clutch fully, get in gear, give signal. Press a little on the accelerator, release clutch halfway and hold, then release handbrake. Release clutch a bit more, and go on with the accelerator.

3. To change gears, slow down, not stop, then press the clutch fully, change gears, and release clutch.

4. Must I remind myself, that the left foot is not always on the clutch, it's on the clutch only to change gears, coming to a stop and using low gear.

well, today, I did better turning, a few mishaps did happen, I wasn't good yet at braking properly, a few times the engine stalled, and when I panicked, I nearly ran into a few cars. Oh yeah, I drove myself home, with help from the instructor of course.

At the simpang empat with the traffic lights near carrefour, my engine stalled, good thing nothing bad happened, I was starting to panic.

oh yeah, and before braking, always check to see if there were people behind you, and when turning, always check if there were any cars coming. Use the sideview mirror to see if you makan jalan or not.

I didn't practice at the circuit since it was closed, so we just went around Section 5, naik turun bukit. Okay, that's about that for today. End of lesson two.

All in all, I have to.... relax...

Taming Tigers

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Of Engineering and Life

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.

Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
