My Passion Towards Music and K-Pop Industry

I can't clearly remember when I was so into, so fanatic, so totally obsessed with Korean pop music and its industry. You see, Korean pop music is sometimes just the same with the other pop music but to note here is the songs composed got their own impact to listener, plus the lyrics are perfect in rhythm.

The songs composed with different genres and its usually in pop, dancepop, electropop, electronic, EDM, bubblegum, rap, hip-hop, ballad, house etc. For me, I always prefer pops as they suited me well. Before, I really, totally obsessed with pop music, no matter where the songs came from. But now, as I listened to the one from South Korea, I found that my lifetime searching for perfect pop music is from Korea! I listen to songs not based on their lyrics but how the songs got composed, how perfect they blended together. So, I won't mind of understanding the lyrics. 


And when listening to K-Pop songs, I'll always preferring songs from girl groups than boy groups. But I listen to like almost everything. Look. Because of their music! Goodness! Damn perfect. Here I'd follow Girls Generation since early of 2008 with their debut song Into The New World. It was gooood! I haven't noticed this girls before until my brother came home and asked me to watch this one video of their concert performing Into The New World. Since then, I really stan this group in particular until I turned into a SONE (Girls' Generation fanclub). Well, I do really support their musics like seriously and I support each one of them. You know when one of the members Jessica leaved the group, I was so in shocked and sad at the same time. But anyway, seeing their success nowadays including Jessica when she is soloing really make me proud. They are truly the Queen of K-Pop. Oh yes. Forgot to tell you my ultimate bias in Girls' Generation is Kim Hyoyeon. I really love the idol who can sing, be cute at the same time and sometimes being bold, dance perfectly and rap. Yes. That's truly an eargasm!

Next, I really fall in love with this Queen of EDM, Girls' Generation junior, a girl group called f(x)! Their musics, their songs in every albums released are perfect and all-kill! Well, I was late to the party before as I knew f(x) later in 2013, truly stan in late 2014 and Sulli was about to leave the group. I knew them before but never heard their musics. Gosh. I should be listening to them and keep supporting them earlier! And now, I am a part of MeU (f(x)'s fanclub). You know I really like EDM and pop music so much and f(x) brings them successfully! But anyhow, I was a little bit disappointed with how the artists are being managed. They are not being promoted well compared to Girls' Generation or even their new junior Red Velvet. I personally think they deserve more as nobody in South Korean pop music industry ever try or brave enough in singing EDM songs. Their vocals are good, their raps also good, their dances almost kill. What should've being asked for more? They are more than enough! And here my bias in f(x) is Krystal Jung! Yes she is beauty, she is the younger sister of Girls' Generation's Jessica and above all, she and I can be friend together because we're born on the same year. 94 BABIES! Anyhow, EXO's Kai would mad at me, don't you, Kai? Lol I'm just totally freaking kidding. I really like Kaistal relationship! Both them are cute together.

Lastly, the one incredible, the only 4Minute! I really freaking fanatic with this particular girl group! 4Minute for me is literally my life LOL. But anyhow, I was also late to the party. Even later than I'd truly fanatic of f(x). Their first song that I've ever heard was What's Your Name? and followed by Whatcha Doin' Today. And after that, I'd totally crazy with their Crazy song! And as for that, I'd totally fall in love with this group like crazy! Their songs always killing at the beats and as always, I'll keep my head ready for banging whenever listening to their musics LOL. Since then I turned myself as 4NIA (4Minute's fanclub). And later in early 2016, they came with this Hate song. GOSH! I HATE YOU 4MINUTE! I HATE YOU BUT I LOVE YOU! Well, the first half of 2016 was good until this fucking CUBE ENTERTAINMENT announced their disbandment in mid of June 2016. They debuted back then in 2009 on my birthdate which is June 18th and they disbanded just a few days before my birthdate in 2016. I was so fucking sad! I guess their disbandment really took me a whole year to consider their leaving from music industry and no more fucking songs from them in the future. Damn you, Cube Entertainment! Their songs really suit my taste of music well. Anyhow, my ultimate bias in this group is Nam Jihyun! Forever and ever I love Namji so much. She's innocent, her vocals so damn good, can really dances better than you think, always positive, mature personality, and a leader.

Alright I guess that's all about it. I do stans a lot, from girl groups and also boy groups. But above all, these 3 groups received my biggest fanatics! 

Science Biochemistry Internship | Latihan Industri Sains Biokimia

Okay sebelum itu nak cakap latihan industri (LI) aku dah lama habis, even aku dah graduate dah pun. Tapi memandangkan aku jarang buka dan update blog, kini baru teringat nak update bagi mengisi masa lapang yang membosankan sebab takde satu pun lagi panggilan kerja atau interview. 

Jadi, biasalah bagi semua pelajar universiti mesti akan melalui zaman LI a.k.a internship a.k.a practical di sekitar Malaysia atau luar Malaysia dengan mengikut program pengajian masing-masing. Bagi aku yang dari kos Sains Biokimia, UKM, tempat-tempat LI yang bersesuaian adalah makmal, hospital, klinik, syarikat bioteknologi/biosains dan seangkatan dengannya. Dan aku terpilih untuk menjalankan latihan industri di JABATAN PATOLOGI DAN TRANSFUSI, HOSPITAL KULIM, Kedah Darul Aman dari 26 Jun 2016 sehingga 1 September 2016 (9 minggu).




Mula-mula memanglah agak nervous sebab pertama, risau kena buat task-task yang mencabar, kedua, risau susah nak bergaul dengan warga hospital, ketiga, masih tak dapat bayangkan apa sebenarnya yang akan dilakukan sepanjang tempoh latihan. Tapi alhamdulillah. Hari pertama latihan dapat jumpa dengan ramai warga hospital yang tak lekang senyuman dan sentiasa beramah-mesra bertanya khabar. Jadual latihan diberikan dan dibahagikan kepada latihan di Unit Pra-Klinikal, Unit Hematologi, Unit Transfusi, Unit Patologi Kimia, Unit Mikrobiologi Perubatan dan Unit Serologi. 

Antara ujian-ujian yang dijalankan

  1. Unit Pra-Klinikal - pengkelasan dan penghantaran spesimen yang diterima daripada pesakit atau kakitangan perubatan ke setiap unit dalam jabatan. Senang kan? Hantar je hantar hantar hantar. Tapi senang-senang pun berisiko juga untuk menghadapi urin yang tertumpah disebabkan penutup botol tak ditutup dengan rapat la apa 
  2. Unit Hematologi - ujian Glycogen-6-Phosphatase Dehydrogenase (G6PD), ujian Full Blood Count (FBC), ujian Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), ujian Urine FEME.
  3. Unit Transfusi - ujian Group, Screen & Hold, Cross-Matching, ABO Coombs.
  4. Unit Patologi Kimia - atau dikenali juga sebagai Unit Biokimia. Unit yang menerima paling banyak sampel dan spesimen daripada hospital. Ujian Urine FEME, urin Bence Jones Protein, urin PCI, urin bagi ujian penyalahgunaan dadah, ujian pengesahan cannabis dalam urin menggunakan teknik Thin Layer Chromatography, analisis HbA1c, urin parakuat, T4/TSH/FT4/TFT, vitamin B12 dan folat, analisis gas darah, zat besi/ferritin/TIBC, renal profile, blood urea serum electrolytes, creatinine, calcium, magnesium, phosphate, liver function test, creatinine enzyme, uric acid, fasting lipid profile, fasting blood sugar, 2-hour post-prandial blood glucose, oral glucose tolerance test, fasting serum lipid, albumin, amylase, biochemistry urinary creatinine ratio, lactate dehydrogenase, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase.
  5. Unit Mikrobiologi Perubatan - semua ujian yang melibatkan pemplatan spesimen (kahak, najis, tracheal aspirate, urin, darah dan lain-lain) secara 'culture and sensitization' a.k.a C&S ke atas piring agar bagi melihat koloni bakteria tumbuh atau tidak untuk memudahkan kakitangan perubatan menjalankan diagnosis ke atas pesakit. 
  6. Unit Serologi - ujian Hepatitis B dan C, ujian denggi, ujian melioidosis, ujian HIV, ujian sexual transmitted disease (STD) dan pelbagai lagi ujian bagi penyakit bervirus dan berjangkit. 
Okay boleh kot tera tu. Sebagai kesimpulannya kan, banyak benda baru yang belajar masa internship.Tengoklah sendiri ujian-ujian yang dijalankan dalam setiap unit. Ada yang pernah kita dengar. Ada yang tak pernah kita dengar. Hospital Kulim ini hospital daerah so hospital ini kecil saja tak besar mana. Mungkin kalau dapat internship di hospital-hospital besar atau hospital negeri, berkemungkinan banyak lagi ujian-ujian yang akan dijalankan. Tapi walau bagaimanapun, rasa sangat bersyukur sebab selain dapat belajar prinsip, kaedah, sebab penyalit dan sebagainya, dapat juga belajar untuk memperbaiki kemahiran berkomunikasi, bertukar pendapat dan sebagainya untuk persediaan dunia luar yang maha mencabar.

4Minute Act. 7 UNBOXING!

As I went home back from UKM to attend my graduation ceremony, a day later I got a call from Abang Posmen that my parcel is ready to be deliver from the post hub. And my excitement is high! There is the one and only parcel I know and I did ordered for it all by myself just for self-reward for finishing the study and for graduation. 

It is 4MINUTE ACT. 7 album!!!

Okay you may want to yell at me and said its just a waste of money or what but hell no its not. Its pretty late to buy it now since 4Minute have already disbanded. I really love 4Minute and I thought that if I don't buy the album now, this shitty CUBE ENTERTAINMENT might stop producing the album later. Apart from that, I don't find that buying this album was such a waste of money as I noticed that all the songs in this album are freaking lit, bop. You know when the first title track Hate is playing, you just want to bang your head hard like never before. Their beats are the best. Well, its from Skrillex anyway. Yeah.


Okay so it came just like this. Freaking huge, right? It was damn huge just for 5 tracks but anyway I don't mind at all. As you can see on the front part, this gigantic, classy, dazzling red logo of 4M could deceived you. Its freaking pretty tho. 

This album consists of 5 track lists:
01. 싫어 (Hate) *Title
02. No Love
03. Blind
04. Canvas
05. 싫어 (Hate) (Inst.)


Okay I've opened it up. There's photobook too but it came with bunch of separate pages, not a book. CUBE. Jeez. There's too many pages and I won't upload them here because I was so freaking lazy. But anyway here I show you the photocard. I was expecting to get a photocard of Nam Jihyun or Heo Gayoon as both of them are my bias, and Nam Jihyun is my ultimate bias, but anyway I don't mind at all as I'm truly OT5 4NIA you bitch. Don't you dare judging me. 

And I got KWON SOHYUN photocard!!!

This maknae is cute! Recently I've heard she got herself signed with a new label to proceed with her new career - acting. Let's hope for the best! We 4NIA always be with you! 



Okay that's all about it. Guys. Please have a look at the physical album of 4Minute Act. 7 (their 7th mini album aka last album before they disbanded), and if you won't mind, please spend some of your money to buy it. Its not that expensive. LET'S MAKE CUBE ENTERTAINMENT choked and felt wrong of disbanding them. They are freaking talented and how could CUBE misjudged them? You were worng, CUBE! These bitches are going to slay better without you! 

#Tribute4Minute Thank you 4Minute! Thank you Nam Jihyun (you're my ultimate bias. I love you!). Thank you Heo Gayoon! Thank you Jeon Jiyoon! Thank you Kim HyunA! Thank you Kwon Sohyun! I love all of you!

Graduation Gifts!


Oh they are cute and pretty, wasn't they? LOL. Anyway, I really appreciates all the gifts and I'm so freaking happy! 

Those smiley with 4 bars of Cadburry chocolate were given by my Bulan Sabit Merah Malaysia's juniors. They wrap the gift box just sooooooooo freaking nice and made me rethink to open or not for almost 3 days! Goodness! 

Then this elegant, gorgeous black neck-tie! Thank you, you! I really loved it! Heh you know my fav colour really well LOL. This tie is so damn gorgeous I don't think I can wear it. Oh yes let's keep it nice and tidy in my show-off rack. When people come, they will ask "OMG who gave you this freaking pretty tie?" And I won't answer them and made them repeat the question like crazy bwahahahahaha. 

This cute teddy bear holding a roll of degree certificate and wearing a mortar board was from my pretty sister. It came with a bunch of roses but she later took it and I don't like flower anyway hahaha. Anyway,I was really grateful and thankful as my sister really did spent everything, I mean everything! The train tickets. The studio albums. The flowers. The foods. The everything. She's the best! 

And those with labelled 4M was my self-reward. I did pre-ordered myself an album of 4Minute - Act. 7 from Valoa Records and it arrived to my home address one day after the convocation. I really love 4Minute and their music and their disbandment made me cried deep down in my heart. They debuted on my birthdate back then in 2009 and they disbanded almost on my birthdate in 2016. Screw you, CUBE ENTERTAINMENT! 

But anyway, well, this convocation pretty amazing and turned out even lit with those pretty gifts. Thank you everyone! Love you guys. 

Graduated!

6 tahun di SK Permatang To' Kandu. 3 tahun di SMK Bandar Baru PERDA. 2 minggu di SMS Kepala Batas. 1 tahun di MRSM Beseri. Kembali semula 1 tahun di SMK Bandar Baru PERDA. 1 tahun di Kolej Matrikulasi Pulau Pinang dan akhir sekali 3 tahun di Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

Penat lelah berhempas-pulas tidak cukup tidur memikirkan masa depan dan menelaah pelajaran, berkat doa dan ilmu daripada mak, arwah ayah, cikgu-cikgu, keluarga, sahabat-sahabat dan kawan-kawan, akhirnya aku dah sampai sini. Terima kasih semua. 

Acah baling topi nampak classy padahal dah berpeluh macam apa lagi time ni

Kejayaan ini adalah tidak seberapa tapi alhamdulillah. Akhirnya dapat juga menggenggam segulung Ijazah Sarjanamuda Sains dengan Kepujian (Biokimia). Dulu masa zaman UPSR, Sains dapat gred B. Tapi siapa tahu degree Sains juga aku pegang LOL. Allah sudah plan baik-baik punya. Kita cuma merancang dan Allah yang menentukan.

The only BSMM junior yang suka kacau dan masuk campur hal-hal peribadi LOL itulah lepasni tak jumpa dah buat FYP Mikrobiologi elok-elok 

Banyak liku dan cabaran yang telah dilalui. Ada satu masa tu ya Allah. Rasa fade up sangat dengan kos Biokimia, terutamanya bila kena buat final year project. Entahlah kenapa stress sangat masa dulu sampai terdetik dalam hati nak tukar kos di saat-saat akhir, lebih kurang 2 bulan sebelum tamat pengajian. Tapi alhamdulillah. Ada kawan-kawan yang sentiasa membantu membetulkan pandangan aku teruskan perjalanan yang hanya tinggal beberapa tapak lagi, terutamanya kawan-kawan dari kos sendiri dan dari Bulan Sabit Merah Malaysia. Terharu dan bangga sebab ada kawan-kawan yang bersama susah dan senang. 

Okay sekejap ini gamaknya macam dah kumpul geng-geng otai blog suatu masa dulu kahkah sekarang semua dah sunyi menyepi masing-masing busy (left to right: Dini - medic, Adila - dentist, Aina - plant biotech, me, Zue - economy)

Biochemist gentlemen asalnya ada 5 tadi tersesat seorang ke tempat lain jadi tinggal kami berempat (geng-geng ponteng kuliah LOL I'm sorry) (left to right: Raja, me, Saufi, Aizad)

Ditambah lagi terharu bila kawan baik yang dari kelas, di universiti yang lain, berkejar-kejar ke UKM sebab nak sambut konvokesyen. Walaupun hanya dapat berjumpa untuk sementara tapi truly appreciate it! Terima kasih inshaAllah esok-esok dia konvo, kita balas a visit pula okay hihi.

So I think that's all about it. To those future Biochemists, good luck! Make our #BiokimiaUKM and #HebatAnakMuda proud. Okay. Konvo dah konvo dah, ni nak cari jalan bayar hutang PTPTN pulak dah! LOL. Tanam anggur ni gaji masuk lambat sikit.
