Wanna be the fastest message texter in the world?

I was reading the articles in the newspaper when I stumbled upon an interesting article.

------------------

"The 27 year-old, from Salford, Greater Manchester, smashed the previous record for a wordy phrase by almost 10 seconds.

She wrote ''the razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human'', in a super-fast 25.94 seconds.

The official Guinness World Record is currently held by American Franklin Page, 24, who wrote the same passage in 35.54 seconds in March this year.

The record, which remains subject to Guinness approval, was smashed by Ms Thompson using the Galaxy S's ''SWYPE'' key pad, which enables users to input text without their fingertip leaving the screen.

Ms Thompson, who works for an insurance company, was shopping with her boyfriend, Chris Davies, 23, when they visited a Samsung roadshow and she was invited to have a go at breaking the record.

''I used to send a lot of text messages - 40 or 50-a-day to Chris alone so we both knew I could type fast," she said.

''But since we moved in together and I started my job I haven't been texting as much and, you could say, my fingers were out of shape.

''It's a real shock to find out that I'm the fastest texter in the world.

'But using SWYPE helped. Everyone should give it a go and see how easy it is.''

Ms Thompson used a Samsung's new Galaxy S smartphone when she shaved the 9.6 seconds off Mr Page's record, also achieved on a Samsung device.

The company said it allows people to send text messages at speeds that were never before possible.

The record will now be assessed by the Guiness Book of World Records. "

-----------------------

Go ahead and try to type ''the razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human" in less then 25.94 seconds.
Maybe you can beat her! Haha

I did it all by myself.

This post is about what I did on my 2nd day of work :)

FYI, my office is situated in my lecturer's office. So, she bought a new desk for me because there were no other empty desk in there. Thank you Dr!

Here we go now. Ta-da!

Before

You see the toolbox there? That belongs to my lecturer. And and the hammer. Belongs to her too. Hee. The point is, I use them okay.

Used to play as carpenter girl when I was little. I am not that typical little girl who like to play with barbie dolls only bah. I climbed trees, who doesn't? I broke my leg once during sports at school. I twisted my ankle twice when I climbed the garage at home to tie something on the roof (the ladder slipped) and during a football match at school. I am not a tomboy nor girlie and I think I am both. You can make me play rough. I can be as sweet as an angel. Bahahaha~

After (to be exact, after 2 hours) =_="

I don't like to read instructions or manuals. Really. I like to just jump into it and do it following my heart and instinct at the same time.

But in this case? I had too. Darn. Takut tersalah pasang skru and etc. Hee~

Yup. I did it all by myself. Haha. So proud of it. My own desk.

But sadly. I have to say bye to this desk soon. Why? I will tell you when the time comes :)

My First Day

Today was my first day working as a research assistant in UMS. As usual, on the first day you will be greeted with 'Wah. Orang baru' , 'Welcome to the club my friend' and etc. No exception for me as well. I was even asked to introduce/ greet everyone officially during the meeting but luckily our boss understood me well. Everybody knows who I am already bah so no need for introduction okay.


 At Esther's table for the day.

I will be taking care of our experimental fish in UMS hatchery for about 3 to 4 months. Then, if our experiment already started, we will move to IPMB. So, here I come :) Have to arrive there by 7.30 in the morning for the morning class and morning meeting. After the meeting, then I will start to do my work. Tank cleaning, change water, feeding and etc.. Hmm. Teringat dulu zaman under-graduate. But this time no Macy and Intan. *sigh* There will be only me and me alone. Ah Yau will only be back here on 13 September. Both of us will pursue our Master under the same lecturer :P Wee~

Hopefully I will be blessed with patience, perseverance and passion (Ya. The 3 Ps) so that I can go through this 2 years without any issues at all. Amen.

Have to write a proposal for the post-graduate application which will be closed at the end of the month October. Work with it Steffy! Come on. You can do it. But.. but.. but.. I think the hardest part will be the 'Literature Review'. Oh no. Have to R.E.A.D more on lipid. Darn. I love you so much nutrition *sarcastically*

Beginning to work as an RA and starting from January will work and do Master at the same time. Give me the strength I need please.

Oh ya. During lunch hour, I went with Looi. Where else we eat if not Kingfisher. And guess what? She gave me a ride on her motorcycle! It was FUN!! Huahuahuahua~

Will update more about my work and study next time. See ya!

Rapunzel. Rapunzel. Let down your hair.

I never thought that I would want to do hair extension. Never in my mind I consider about that. What they did to the hair is before they attached the fake hair, they will first divide your hair into a few sections (starting from below), they braid it and your original hair will be clipped to the fake hair.

Sections by sections, braid by braid, continue to do it until your upper head and voila! You will have a longer hair and it will look natural if the person who did it knows how to do it very well (of course!)

So, 2 days ago, Marcie and I went to Centre Point/ City Parade (what's CP stands for now? No idea. Haha) to do hair extension. We went to a shop named e-Noveal situated at the Ground Floor near a money exhange counter and after around 45 minutes, magically our hair transformed. Hee. We paid for only RM190 (RM150 for the hair + RM40 for the service of hair extension) Hey guys, it's quite cheap ka? I don't know but according to Marcie if you go to the saloon, they will ask for a minimum of RM200++ kan?

Before and after pics here we go :P

Steffy's before

And yes, people didn't seem to notice it. Even my family didn't ask me anything about my 'longer' hair. Our friends too. Hoho~ It looks natural bha.

Oh. Oh. Oh.

Oh dear. How long have I abandoned you blog? Hee. FYI, I'm currently at the state where my mind is wandering here and there. Thinking of this, thinking of that. Hm.

However, I know that everything will come to an end and finally I'll know what's the reason of things happening the way it is happening right now.

I am unemployed and yes last week I was in Labuan working with at my aunt's restaurant. Due to homesick, I went back home at the very last minute. Haha. Only stayed there for 8 days and then homesick? What.. I can't believe it but yes that's what happened. What can I say :) I am definitely not a 'anak manja' ok. Muahaha

Perhaps I will be continuing my studies by taking a Master's degree. Is that how we call it? Within this week I'll be discussing about it with my lecturer in UMS. Yes. UMS. I don't prefer to go far away from home. Wanted to but next time la bah. It shall be a 2 years studies and then I am going to be a lecturer. That's the plan. Do help me God. Amen.


xoxo
