[14 to 20 Jan 2013]
On Monday my sister and I travelled all the way to One Utama to redeem her prize. She won a shopping voucher and a blanket from Uniqlo :D When we went to the store one of the staff told us that we should be collecting it at the management office instead of the store. However she directed us to the wrong direction and we were annoyed. We eventually went to the customer service counter to ask for directions. Thank goodness we weren't late for our appointment and my sister managed to collect her goodies. THE BLANKET IS SO FLUFFY I CAN HOLD IT ALL DAY.
Later, looking for the bus stop was a challenge. It's our first time going to One Utama and we had a hard time hunting the bus stop. I am not going to go into how awful the bus services are. It's just awful. Anyways we waited for quite some time before a bus showed up and we could finally go back to the apartment.
On Tuesday my sister and I went travelling again. We went to the centre that I did my internship last year to get my testimonial and certificate of completion signed. I was really thankful that my supervisor was really nice to me and was willing to sign :D However things didn't go too well for Justina. My supervisor said that she didn't complete her internship so she's not able to sign the certificate for Jus :/ There's nothing that I can do about it. Also, I was told that the centre would never accept any interns from my Uni anymore. Not that my Uni will be sending interns to their centre as well but then I felt like we kind of ruin our Uni's image. My supervisor reassured that I did fine during the internship. Oh well. I wonder how am I supposed to tell my Uni supervisor. After getting all my stuff done we can finally go back to our hometown in the afternoon :D
A video went viral on Facebook. It was about a forum faciliator (also a president of a non-governmental organisation) moved away a Uni student's microphone and not allowing her to finish her opinions. The facilitator even repeated the word 'Listen' 10 times so that the student was unable to respond. The facilitator also repeated 'Let me speak' and it's the most annoying video I have ever watched. There was no respect shown to the poor student and the student was also condemned as having no respect and have the least education. In the video/forum, human rights issues were equated with animal problems and peaceful demonstration was equated with violent street rally. I have no idea how a brainwashing forum can be held in a University.
The video was meant to be presented in a way in which the 'disrespectful' student being awakened/enlightened by the facilitator. However things didn't go as predicted and it stirred up a huge discussion among Facebook users and especially University students.
The general election is coming. I'm pretty sure about that :b
