save the internet

This is an interesting ad, and I would say, effective.

Q: What’s with the internet neutrality and why they want us (public) to sign the petition?

A: The internet is under attack by huge telecoms like AT&T. Americans across the country are fighting back, but does Washington, DC care? Or are they going to sell out the internet regardless? Musicians like Moby care because your ability to download and listen to music from iTunes and videos from youtube could be in jeopardy. The only way to save the internet from these big companies is through NET NEUTRALITY.

OK. I know this doesn’t have any relation with other country but this ad is cool and funny.

Watch this video to see Moby bring the issue of NET NEUTRALITY to Congress.

This cool video has been made by these genius people:

series of events

This week is a lovely week. Half term for UK students. It means, a week of holiday. Luckily we can celebrate raya for the whole week. Below are the events according to chronological order:

Monday: Raya
Wednesday: DeepaRaya Feast
Thursday: International Nite
Saturday: Concert of Plymouth Respect Festival
Sunday: Plymouth Respect Festival

So, I didn’t finish my report for EIT yet. Luckily my friend (I’m sorry I don’t know who) asked Mike to give an extension for the assignment due date. Whew.

English-Bahasa Melayu translation

Translating English to Bahasa Melayu is quite difficult. Currently I am volunterring to be one of the translator for Ubuntu’s The Dapper Drake project and it seems that I have lost the skill of translating English to my mother tongue. I just realised all this while I don’t call computer gadgets in Bahasa, but English. I never once called a mouse as ‘tetikus’ and so forth. O wait, last time I referred computer stuffs in Bahasa was in my Friendster blog. Which is way months ago, before this blog exist.

With the help from my master cry4freedom, a widely used dictionary in Malaysia had been downloaded and I used it a lot in helping me to translate English to Malay. The software is called Al-Yassir. If anyone interested to download it, scribble it in comment area since the file size is 59MB, pretty big eh? Ok. Honestly, I don’t want to upload it if nobody wants it. What’s the point innit?

Right. Here’s one of the challenge, I had taken an hour to translate this;


I asked my friends, google, etc. I just do not know what ‘under score’ is called in Malay. But my friend gave me an idea and I finally translate ‘under score’ as ‘garis bawah’. Whew. Thank you Halwani.

Another challange; click the link below:


Number 38: Acces denied. Do I translate it correctly? Is it ‘laluan dihalang’ or ‘tiada kebenaran masuk’? I can feel my brain cracks a bit as I was doing this translation job.

Number 37: I think I did it correctly. However, you can correct me if I am wrong

Number 38: This one is tricky. Nothing done. Is it ‘tiada apa dilakukan’? or ‘tiada tindakan dibuat’?

OK. My humble point to volunteer in this project is to lift up my mother tongue’s notion of correctness, but I think I end up messing it. By the way, I had fun chatting with my master about Malay translation of computer terms.


PS: I am so confused with ‘hard disk’ and ‘hardware’. I thought it is ‘cakera keras’. I am totally wrong. Hardware is ‘perkakas keras’. *sigh*

Eid 2006 update

In UK, we already celebrated Eid Mubarak, one day earlier than Malaysia (Monday, 23rd). So far, I haven’t shed a tear yet although there are many challenges and problems I encounter. I’m trying not to have any emotion attachment, as a Jedi is prohibited from doing so. Feeling will prone you to dark force.

Here’s the report of Eid in Plymouth, 2006.

Eid eve: cooking, playing sparkle.

Q&A: Raya @ Eid 2006

Pertama kali beraya jauh dari family. Siapa agaknya tolong mak di dapur (?), siapa tolong mak basuh pinggan (?), siapa temankan emak kalau mak tak pergi solat raya (?), etc.

Soalan streotype: Apa perasaan?
Jawapan saya: Sungguh mencabar soalan ini ya. Pelbagai perasaan dialami seperti seronok; kerana kita mmg kena seronok masa hari raya, sedih; pertama kali sambut raya jauh dari keluarga, biasa; kerana sudah 22 kali sambut hari raya. Juga, sedikit rasa

Lagi soalan streotype: Sana (UK) puasa bila?
Jawapan saya: Mungkin hari Ahad (22/10/06) atau Isnin (23/10/2006)

S(ainee semakin malas menaip nampak gayanya): Seronok tak beraya di UK?
J: er, aren’t we supposed to be happy during hari raya?

S (and I’m not sure whether this is a question): elleh, sane raya tak best. takde lemang ketupat dan rendang.
J: hello? snap, snap. which world are you living? why are you saying like we’re living in antartica?have you heard anything called globalization? and even if you’re in Michigan, Tokyo, or Jordan, you can still eat those kind of stuffs OK?
PS: Go fish yourself.

ainee is a rock chick

I had fun playing drums today (and I still feel like playing it again). Well, if i have a band, I would play the drum. Spreading my anger via the drum sticks (not the chicken body part ok?). BTW, thanks for visiting my blog, Dienka.

Blogthings says that if I were a rocker, I would be a glam rocker. Something like Scissors Sisters+Suede+Duran Duran. LOL.

Ainee is a Glam Rocker!

You put the “show” in rock show with your larger than life self.
No doubt, you are all about making good music…
But what really gets you going is having an over the top show.
Glitter, costumes, and wild hair are your thing – with some rock thrown in!

O yeah, I had finished the recording and copied it in the CD. There are 3 parts:

I: last week’s work. using garbageband software of macbook and some people said it sounds good (I send it to 3 people only, heheh).

II: experiment:not much. very short. don’t know what to say.

III: using keyboard to record “doe a dear” song. sounds like kids playing for school caremony.

The testimonials from the 3 people:

ina (my housemate who gave me the music notes for ‘doe a dear’s song): eh, okei la tuh .

blusmurX: bagaimana intro boleh begitu hebat sekali?
blusmurX: why why?
blusmurX: oh
blusmurX: talented.
blusmurX: tp seriously , u’re talented.
blusmurX: boleh la collab dgn i pasni.

alilXaki (19/10/2006 20:06:28): awal2 sounds mantap
alilXaki (19/10/2006 20:07:38): huhu
alilXaki (19/10/2006 20:07:43): yg awal2 serius mantap

unveil the veil


I have posted 3 entries for different blog today (check out my profile if you want to read them. IF.). This is the third one. Bear with me. O yeah, I mess with 3 people also, eh wait, aren’t they mess with me? Three. A magic number for this week.

Why do I choose “unveil the veil” title for this entry? This is an entry, or reflection I would say, for Marrick’s poem. Well, I feel what Marrick wrote was quite true though it’s politically opinionated which has made my ears went red. For me, the veil can be the object which covers you, and also your attitude for being a hypocrite. Yes, the hijab and the hypocrite person. Since 9/11 (remember the show ‘rescue number 911’? is it just a coincidence?) the world (majority) relates islam with terrorism. Marrick isn’t wrong. He even says he has Muslim friends who don’t have any characteristic of terrorist. The way he thinks like that is because media is showing that kind of image of Islam. I don’t blame them all. I feel sorry for them as they do not know much about Islam.

More news about veil wearing in UK.


I really feel like beating a drum tomorrow (literally and figuratively). I want to express my anger. Dienka also said “Owh, you look like this but actually you like rock eh?”. Yeah. I love rock music, big time. It expresses my anger and love most of the time. Not long-winded like a rhapsody or symphony. I’m not saying that they are not good but they are so not-focus music piece. You know what I’m saying. It’s like a person who wants to say that he wants to go out with you but goes on like “Do you have anything to do this weekend? Are you going out to anywhere? Do you have any plan? Will you go out with si polan and si polan? Bla3”. Quite annoying innit? Just talk straight to the point laa macha!


Yesterday’s creative writing session was quite ‘pain in the brain’ (Daisy, 2006) at first, but when it comes to practical session, I feel like I did a good job. She said “good” and “superb”. Huu~ Dienka also says that the poem which I send for the Respect Festival is good. She said it’s strong. I don’t know how’s that. I really don’t know. What I wish is for the best as it (the poem) speaks out for me.

Another interesting that happened to me yesterday was Marrick did an Egyptian hieroglyph of my name. Mine looks nice. I’ll asked from Marrick the paper next time and scan it and paste it in here. Insya Allah. I never knew my name looks nice in Egyptian hieroglyph.


Another event which is happening right now is the preparation for Eid or Hari Raya. It’s quite cold right now and I can’t wear baju kurung justlike that, needs long john inside to make me warm. This gives me an idea to design a baju kurung which can be worn in cold-climate country. Don’t know when the prototype will be published, perhaps in a very long time.

i had but i cancel it

I was about to write about something, but shit happens (it always happen innit?) and what I want to tell you people is, I felt positive and cheerful all day. Suddenly, this fated evening, shit happens and I had burden and torture Azwan as I yelled and screamed and crying (erk, sum mo his nick is cry4freedom what~) to him. Haha. Sorry dude. You’re the victim since you know about it. OMG. I can’t believe it. I thought I just gained profit from Amazon, and I thought I’m going to have a series of fortunate events, but suddenly, shit happens and kaboom~ I feel sorry for the people who come to my blog and read this crap. So bloody sorry. And you too Azwan. Hwargh!!
