我的圣诞忧郁 第三章——假期里的折磨

这个嘛,假期真的有几天是在精神地狱里过的。去拍了Pakistan人的结婚典礼……天啊!!!谁来救救我!!!

这个种族的人,结婚都是非常隆重——“重”时间,“重”口味,“重”礼聘,“重”音乐。

“重”时间——结婚的典礼,分4天举行,而且每天的拍摄时间从早到晚!简直是体力的考验。

“重”口味——嗯,美味的咖喱饭……

“重”礼聘——保证你吓倒!你在华人结婚典礼也不会看到那么多金!!金手环、金项链、金耳环,10多套的衣服,10多双的鞋子!!警告:没钱的男人,千万别乱求婚,会“金尽人亡”的!!

“重”音乐——你就进行以下的实验体会吧……

实验:聆听最讨厌之歌
目的(Aim):

亲身体验我的感受。
假设(Hypothesis):
进行实验后,你会与我有同感
变数(Variables):
操纵性变数(Manipulated Variables):播放声量,播放次数
反应性变数(Responding Variables):你的精神是否还正常
固定性变数(Constant Variables):播放软件,播放的歌曲
器具与材料(Apparatus and Materials):
电脑一台、讨厌的歌一首、喇叭以及你的耳朵
DSC00003
像这样!

程序(Procedures):
1)把一首你最讨厌的歌,不管用Window Media Player 也好、Winamp 也好, 把那首歌轻声播放一次,并写下你的心跳率,呼吸常数。

2)现在,再次播放那首歌,以最高声量播放一小时。不,半小时就够了。然后,写下你的心跳率与呼吸常数。

3)比较两组实验的结果。

结果(Results):
实验无法进行到最后。因为你听了十分钟后,已经发疯抓狂。
损失(Loss):
一台电脑被砸烂,花瓶被砸破,墙壁被刮花,2名伤患(时运低,路过无辜被攻击),医药费(对伤患的赔偿),实验对像发狂,国家丧失一个未来栋梁……
结论(Conclusion):
实验对象与我深有同感,不过还是别进行实验为妙……

我的圣诞忧郁 第二章——假期里的计划

我喜欢假期,却又很讨厌它。

喜欢它的原因是——它允许我做我想要做的事情。

讨厌它的原因是——它总会带来排山倒海的惰意,让你做不了计划好的事情。(妈妈的一句话:就自制力不够嘛!!)

然而最讨厌的原因,还是在于当你蹉跎岁月后的那种罪恶感。

当你真的很忙碌,而没办法完成计划好的事情,那么你还可以原谅自己说“我太忙了啦!”。

可是,遇上假期的话,你根本不可能对自己那么说,甚至还必须骂一事无成的自己“你太懒了!”,简直罪恶感倍翻!!

庆幸的是,我还是有些收获的。

去年到台湾旅行,扫购回来的不是衣服食物,而是一堆书。

半年过去,几乎都读完了,仅剩下两本最难的书。

在这个假期,总算每一本读了一半,太不错了!!(内心话:本来计划好读完的,结果只实行了一半……罪恶感,罪恶感T^T

书本的题目吗?我真的有一点说不出口。你自己看吧!



数学少女?!世界第一简单密码学?!

好吧,我承认,那本《数学少女》的封面设计一看就令人以为是宅男家里,堆得到处都的ecchi系(色色系)的漫画。在台湾,我也是因为被封面设计吸引才买的。

不是,绝对不是因为想看色色的内容!!!而是在意这样的数学教材到底深怎样的。

结果嘛,我只能说一个字——好!!!

这本书真的完全超乎我的想象!作者以轻小说的方式,带出了他对数学的想法,以及数学的热爱。通过两个少女,以及男主角的互动,探讨了数学的演算,揭示了学生对数学经常束手无策原因,数学的优美以及其中的魅力。

这本书并没有覆盖全部数学的课题,而只是探讨其中一个,那就是数列(Sequence & Series)的问题。

至于那本《世界第一简单密码学》是以漫画方式呈现,解说密码(Cipher)的基础知识。我们每天上网,可是你可清楚我们所发送的每一封邮件背后的加密、解密的过程?你可能知道电脑只读得懂010011101这种语言,可是你又可知道二位进数(Binary Number System)的独特的地方?相信各位早就把高中所学的二位进数忘了,毕竟生活里没有接触。

(各位,这里你可以省略不读,直接跳第三章,除非你对数学有兴趣。)

数学是很多人都头痛的科目,当问及理由的时候,给予的回答几乎不是“不明白”就是“不懂应用”。

数学并不难,问题在于你是否有认真的理解并且体会。理解是必要的,因为才懂得运用,举一反三。体会是必要的,因为会产生兴趣,才不会还没品尝就倒进垃圾桶。

很多人认为数学会做就可以了。那是没有错啦,考试能够过关就好了。可是,当你遇到一个新的问题,你是否能够用你所学过的知识,去解答新的问题,那就有些困难了。

就举个例子吧:

x+3=5,求x

我相信每个中学生都能解。每个人都会说,把+3搬过去5那里,就会变x=5-3,所以x=2。可是我想要问的是,为什么+3搬到对面去会变成-3?

你答得出来吗?答得出来就说明你已经彻底明白了。能够成为自己的老师,对自己解释,才能够跟别人解释。当然,你的解释必须呈现出来给人家看。

x+3=5

(x+3)-3=5-3

x+0=5-3

x=2

所谓的“搬”其实是左边减3,右边减3。没错,就这样简单,简单得不少人都忘了为什么。很多人都认为这种小事没有必要那么清楚,毕竟考试时都搬对了。可是在我看来,越是往上爬,我们越是要对基础的事情更加清楚,因为基础才是你解决你从来没有遇过的题目的关键。

再来个例子好了。

大家知道质数(Prime Number)吗?也就是只能被自己和1整除的自然数,比方说235711。那么题目来了,1是不是质数?如果不是,又为什么?

我们中一就知道1确实不是质数。可是你可曾想过原因?这就关系到质因数分解的唯一性(The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetric)

质因数分解,就是把某一个数,拆散成一系列的质因数。比方说8的质因数分解就是2 x 2 x 215 = 3 x 584 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 7。这就是为什么1不能是质数,因为如果我们允许的话,任何数的质因数分解的答案将会超过一个。比如:

15=3 x 5

15=1 x 3 x 5

15=1 x 1 x 3 x 5

15=1 x 1 x 1 x 3 x 5

为了保持质因数分解的“唯一”性,数学家决定不把1当作质数。

好吧,最后给各位一个课题。

相信大家都知道Pythagoras Theorem——a2+b2=c2

所以题目是——为什么a2+b2=c2

科技很先进了啦,上wiki搜一搜,答案就出来了。能够证明a2+b2=c2的证据有300个以上,你只要知道1个就已经很足够了。至少你理解了,不是吗?

数学是很优美的,因为它是人类数千年历史的结晶。你不觉得,你每学习一个新的数学定理,并且能够理解它,就已经跟数千年前的数学巨人们对话了吗?

数学对我来说,已经是一种语言了。它是一种谨慎而且全球性的语言。它没有文字,只需符号,可是你在世界上的任何一个角落都可以让人家总会明白你在写什么,说什么。

《数学少女》第三章——ω的华尔兹(The Waltz of ω),一开头就引用了康托尔的话。


——所谓的数学,其本质就是“自由”——

我的圣诞忧郁 第一章——假期里的网路游戏

注意:这个不是小说,只是无聊的生活写照。

第一章——假期里的网路游戏

嗯,假期尾声了,真的好快呢……”我不禁吐出每个学生的心声。

懒洋洋的我,赖在电脑桌前,双眼木讷地盯着手提电脑荧幕,左手食指机械式地上下按着SpaceBar

好讨厌啊~Up Level怎么那么慢……”

荧幕里可爱的角色,正在攻击四周的怪物,扩音器不时传出刀枪碰撞的音效。

假期实在是太无聊了!这种空虚感,促使我打开已经一年没碰的网上游戏NOSTALE。http://nostale.myrosso.com

杀一只怪物需要按两次SpaceBar,每杀一只长0.02%的经验值,要100%的话,必须按……”

一时的无聊,竟然让我问起自己一些琐碎的事情,脑袋开始计算起来。

然而长假的无聊所带来的慵懒症也不是盖的,我根本就没心情算。

算了吧。我决定让这种自我矛盾到此为止。

——叮咚!!——

哦,游戏讯息?

我点了荧幕右下角的按钮,一个通讯视窗蹦了出来。

——喂,庭玉,去哪里找饥饿岩石手兵?我的任务是打猎他们——

哇咧,这家伙还真是精力充沛…==|||

但是也不能怪她。她会沉迷在这个游戏,我也是有一半的责任。

对,我的责任也就停留在那“一半”而已,另一半的责任是她的!

毕竟我找了不少人来一起玩,可是只有她一个人玩了之后就一发不可收拾。

每天准时报道,甚至等级都比我还高了!!

她是谁?这个嘛,同班同学看了都会笑吧……

色色のKKA!

OMG!! The titles says 色色のKKA!!

Nah, don't worry.... Nothing concerning KKA happened in the "OKU TOILET" in UPM , nor did anyone in KKA is involved in any form of crime, at least. (Is returning late at 2.30am to college a crime? Anyone?)

色色might relate to those X stuff in chinese, but it actually means "a variety of" in Japanese. (Pronounced as iro-iro~)

Well, I wonder what happened lately...

Have we been studying too much? (yeah, reading comics and magazine.)

Have everyone gone short-circuit due to the stress? (yeah, BBB=busy being boring...)

It seems like KKA first year students are doing extreme 色色 things lately... ("a variety of" extreme things, I mean.)

It all started with someone's weird idea. There is this guy, who is extremely "变" (pronounced as "Hen" in japanese, meaning STRANGE), on one night, prompted that all the 6 chemical guys should do something with their hair. And the rest of them ended up being the victims below...

That's the CHICKEN KING!!



He made them into 公鸡头!Then he even prompted the girls to tie up ponytails on the same day! However, I am not allowed to post those pictures here... (I might get killed...)

Who is that guy? Well, I don't want to tell now. You should know since his photograph is not in the "victim list".

And then it was Mid-Autumn Festival, and College 10 and 11 were organizing the TANGLUNG FESTIVAL. 1 Comment: Damn Boring.... (sorry, frankly.) So i just post some pictures which relates to the event... Barely....

Hooray for the KKA guys in PROTOCOL!! They are... handsome...

There's this very beautiful cloud that evening~!

Then again, that very same guy, due to his boredom, proposed something else again.

God said "Let this world has lights!" And there are sun and stars in this world.

He said "Let KKA has PESTA TANGLUNG!" And there was.....

Tea and Mooncake Party that night!

What are you "NO-ing" about with such face? =.="

Whoever took this photo must be a very very very DESPERATE person...
And whoever is in this photo must be a very very very 博大金菇 person...
Her mouth must be full of mooncake~!
Such much for the "on-diet" campaign... @.@

Why do I have the feeling that he looks like WU GANG?
(I mean, when he get caught deforesting illegally?)

It's LUCKY that MOSAIC is applied here.. Phew...
(No one wants to die young, killed by her BF, right?)

Yay! It's the "FILL IN THE DIALOG" Contest~!
The one who comes up with the most creative wins!

Still, it's the traditional teapot which makes the best tea! Bad Manners! Bad Manners! SIT POLITELY! Hong Peng, go find yourself a GF please...
Instead of asking me to feed you! NEWS FLASH: Coming in, MUAR BOMBER cutting the mooncake ELEGANTLY! =.=" Brewing tea using a MUG just spoil the elegance of it...
I haven't heard of any ghost story in UPM yet... But these guys are REAL!!






You just can't do it without a LANTERN on such festival!

And on the same night, we celebrated "sometwo's" BDAY!

Happy Birthday, JJ and WINNIE!

Ghost? =.="


People often say that the most BEAUTIFUL moment lies with the cake!
(Whatever that means...)

Present's time and....
TADAA!! High quality and hand sewn BRA!!
Hmmm... Just don't pay attention to the person wearing it now.
Pay attention to the golden initial -W!
I sewn it, for god sake~!

Group Photo~!

And then, that guy, due to his boredom, dragged the rest of the guys, into KURSUS TEKNIK TALI DAN PERTOLONGAN CEMAS, which on that day, they were the only Chinese attending...

Bukit EXPO is beautiful~!

There, they learned...


Flying FoX~!

Then due to boredom waiting for their turn... They mastered...


"Sleep wherever you are!" Technique~!

Master Kidnapping Technique!

TELEPORT!

And they even....

Produced their own MV!

Then, due to his boredom, he asked the guys to attend the Jamuan Hari Raya of the KKA.


Boss~!
Boss~!

Naked Boss~!
(The guy who is living on 1st floor was late that day... This is a punishment...)

Well, in the end, that guy is punished! >.<
DON'T CUT!!

Haha, they are just dragged around by me a lot lately, due to my boredom. Of course, I am dragged here and there too.

TITAS pameran...

Not mine....

Yes, ours!

Our topic was ADAT MINUM TEH CINA...
And I don't see what this photo to do with it...

On our way back from the TITAS pameran, we get our chance to....



Take some OLD MODEL BUS!!
This is the real TITAS!!

Talk about studying, We CHEMICAL ENGINEERS are so advance that we took up QUANTUM PHYSICS!


That's one of the EXPERIMENT~!

Eversince, we have just got even extreme. It was Wednesday night, and we, 14 of us, went outing to the MINES. I don't mind going out on Saturday, but Wednesday?!

We earned some salary there by helping with PIZZA HUT CM!
(Low budget CM....)

Then the 14 of us watched SURROGATES!

It was a great movie! We back to college around 12am, but... We still don't have enough of it!

Climbed the PAGAR and went out to MAMAK stall... When we got back, it's already 2.30AM!!

Why are you all so happy? It's 2.30AM, you know?!

I wonder if it's just the wind, or the clouds, we've been liking the Fac's scenery lately..


Wind O' Wind, take me Away!

Here's some photos of it...







There's just too much to write... Maybe Next time~!

I think I will end it with...

FRISBIE DANCE~!
(DANCER: HONG PENG)

That's all for 色色のKKA!(This blog is so colourful that it makes my eyes pain...)
