What do you think about ‘Shisha’?

Assalamualaikum and peace to all.....

Now we would like to share an article about Shisha. Do you ever heard or noticed that the shisha is already banned. But why shisha should be banned?

Firstly, you need to know what is shisha is about. What is Shisha? Shisha refers to the flavoured tobacco used in the smoking process using a hookah, also commonly known as ‘hubble bubble’ and ‘narghile’. It is believed to have originated in Turkey over 500 years ago while others claim it came from Syria and India.

The tobacco is soaked in fruits shavings such as apples, grapes and strawberries. A hookah consists of a base, pipe, bowl and hose or a mouthpiece. Tobacco is placed in the bowl, which is at the top of the pipe structure. An aluminium foil covers the bowl and small charcoal pieces are then placed on the foil, which is punctured using a pin to gently heat the tobacco. When smoked using the hose, smooth, sweet-smelling vapour is filtered through the base containing water. It also comes in floral flavours such as coconut, vanilla and rose.

Is Shisha harmful? While many may argue that Shisha smoking is not harmful, medical experts say otherwise as tobacco product in any form contains nicotine and nicotine is addictive. Tobacco products are dangerous as it contains chemicals which are toxic and carcinogenic. The common belief is that smoke is filtered by the water when in actual fact, nicotine is not water-soluble. The water filter is a gimmick hence the smoke is inhaled by a smoker.

That is all thank you....

Everyone face the same situation when came to end of the month. No money left. What should we do? The best thing is planning for your budget.


Cut back on unnecessary expenses. If you are working soon, avoid using credit cards or taking out banks loan.


If you living at hostel, this could cut the cost a bit. But, for those who are living outsides, try to manage a schedule of transporting among your friends.

3- FOOD.

Give up unhealthy habits such as smoking, drinking or eating junk food. Check grocery advertisement for bargain and sales.


Remember, the smart clothes does’t has to be branded one. Keeps your clothes simple and mix-match them to stretch your wardrobe. Buy pieces that will compliment other items in your wardrobe. Avoid clothes that are mark ‘dry clean only’.

Manage your money requires discipline, but it will go a long way in ensuring that you are in control of one of the most important aspects of your life.


Most of us are nervous when we want to be interviewing by someone who we are does't know. But, here some tips to coll down your nervous a bit,perhaps. Lets check this out.


1- DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT.Don’t apply for a job just to earn a living. Ask yourself what sort of career will excite and interest you.(one said: If we work by following what we just like but does't have any talent on the area, we would't survive for a long period at our work place. Interest can be disappear but talent or skill will still in you.)

Attend career fairs to learn about the various opportunities available.

Be aware of the latest business news-local, foreign and about the industry you plan to work in. (Business section in newspapers.)4- TAKE PAINS OVER THE RESUME.
Focus, Think and Write. Think some more, rewrite, proof-read. Then get feedback from your friends or family members.

Communication skills, self-confidence, a positive attitude, creativity, personality and etc.
Ask your family members or friends to help with suggestions on how to improve your image.
Arrive 15 minutes early so that you can catch your breath and get used to the surrounding. This will make you less nervous. If possible, go there the day before the interview so that you can familiar with the route.


The first impressions are powerful; so, you need to look good, speak well and act professionally in front of your interviewer.


Send a ‘thank you’ note a day or two after the interview. The note maybe handwritten on a card, typed or emailed.

Don’t be afraid to follow-up with the employer a week or two after interview. It is an excellent way to get noticed and will demonstrate your seriousness about getting the job.

Last but not least, never give up. The job search will not be easy, especially with a tight employment market. However, proper planning will give you a head’s start even in difficult times.

What is interesting about you? What you can bring to the organization?

We all knew that phrases already. But do we really care about that phrases? Anyone can recognize what is these all about? Yes, you are right. All these are about your interviews that you are going to face soon. Are you ready guys?

After graduation day, most of our friends face the same situation. When would they will be called for an interview? They have the great CGPA. They are active in their own campus. But, still there are not been called by any company. So, what is the big problem here?

The ANSWER is……….all of this really lies on how are you present yourself in the APPLICATION LETTERS.


The originality and professionalism. Every year, all organization got hundreds or maybe thousands of applications and they have to shortlist those for interview. So, how do we want our resume will be different from others?

1- 1-Your Cover Latter.

Your cover later is your first point of contact with your potential employer and experienced HR personnel can get valuable information from this. A cover latter should be treated as Business letter. Therefore, all of them must have an overall impression of professionalism. Or in other words, you have to ensure that the position that you are applying is applicable to the organization.

The original letter shows that you are committed and your comments demonstrate your understanding on the organization and understand the position that you are apply.

BE AWARE with writing the company name did not match to the address. This is the

common mistake that graduates always do. The employer will suddenly think that we just try our luck and not serious to attend the position.

2- 2- CV(Curriculum Vitae) or Resume

The CV of fresh graduates is screened using 5factors.

a) a) Overall appearance

b) b)Layout

c) c) Affiliation and Activities that are relevent

d) d)Education and Creadials

e) e)Experience (part-time work or work attachment programme)

Your CV must be impressive and the most important thing is all your data must be TRUE. It is goes to your cover latter. Powerful but TRUE.

Spend time to ensure all of your imformtion that you provide is accurate. This may help you from get into “BLUR” situation during the interview. Once again. PLEASE AVOID from letting your friends to write you CV. Do it yourself. Your ORIGIN. Even though you have the impressive CV it will be show up during the interview. Believe me. Do not ever do this way. PLUS. If you try to do your CV in English, get it right.


We all scared to be in an interview. But, after all we have to remember that the interviewer is human too. They also know if we are scared. Therefore, I will share with you what are they looking for form the interview session. There are three fundamental that they are looking at.


The qualification must be related with the position. But sometimes, the experience is more important than the qualification.


It is all about your attitude. being qualified doesn't means you are enthusiastic enough about doing the job.


This is required you to adapt and flexible in your work place to be able to match with the organization's requirement.

AVOID answering the interviewers question by using YES or NO. This will make them keep increasing their judgement when they have to continuously dig for information.

Answer questions honestly and please do not go around several bushes before getting to the point. Listen very carefully for what is being asked and answer the question correctly.


Sometimes, interviewers like to ask you about you personal interest or hobbies. Here, is the hint. They are trying to look at your passion and hope that they will experience your enthusiasm. that what they want you to bring on when you are working with them. They are also looking at the time constrain when your hobbies brought into the picture.

Besides, the participation in a team sport also important as they look either you are capable in handling work in your team soon. It will be more credit if you are the adventurous person. It is good for the overseas posting, While, for those who like drama or even acting, are less to be shy and good at speaking in public.


Knowing your strengths and what you can offer an employer putting across ahead of other candidates. Knowing your weaknesses also might help you when the interviewer ask you about these.

2 Question that they might ask you.

1- What course gave you the most satisfaction?

2-What course did you find most difficult?

Most candidates able to answer the first question. But some of them are tend to abrupt for the second question. Here the interviewer are trying to find how you solving the difficult part of the course not the course it self.

so, it is the same goes when the interviewers ask you about your strengths and your weaknesses. They just want to know how you identify and dealing with it.


Dress Professionally. when you get there and the environment is casual, you can always dress down.

REMEMBER, no matter how prepared you are, luck and fate does play a certain role in the process.

On 11th of March 2011, world has been surprised by the forth highest earthquakes in the world since 1900 happen in Near the East Coast of Honshu, Japan with magnitude 9.0. Many of us (Malaysian) has take apart and show their sympathy and concern for Japanese people but a tiny of us still make this natural disaster as a joke and does't care about others feeling.

Today, in The Star Online there is review of a press conference with the Japanese Ambassador in Malaysia. He

Besides, there are also a review about the current situation in Japan and a massage which transfer around,

A nuclear power plant in Fukumi, Japan exploded at 4:30 AM today. If it rains tomorrow or later, don’t go outside. If you are outside, be sure that you have rain protectors. It’s acid rain. Don’t let it touch you. You may burn your skin, lose your hair or have cancer. Please pass, stay safe and remind everyone you know.

BBC FLASHNEWS: japan govt cnfirms radiation leak at Fukushima nuclear plants. Asian countries should take necessary precautions. Remain indoors first24hrs. Close doors n windows. Swab neck skin with betadine where thyroid area is, radiation hits thyroid first. Take extra precaution, radiation may hit phil at startng 4pm 2day. Pls send to ur loved ones.”

As mentioned by a reader of the The Star Online,

"Another local analyst covering the utilities sector said that while Malaysia was not subjected to natural disasters such as earthquakes, Malaysia was still open to calamities such as severe floods."

we are lucky not to be in the " Ring of Fire" area, not to worry for any natural disaster but our government will ensure that IT will be a greatest disaster for us. What is your thought??

"To Cheat, or Not to Cheat"

Assalamualaikum and peace to all…

This week we would like to stress about “to cheat or not to cheat”. Cheating is about dishonesty comparable to stealing and lying. In real life, especially in student life, we always heard about cheating while taking the exam or test. This selfishness occurs because the students want to get a good mark and result. They want to achieve it without work hard and even to gain the knowledge.

They do not want to improve or establish themselves. By doing that, they think they will be saved from any failure but in reality, their facing the risk, or even fail in the examination. The attempting to get the answer from other student or any prohibited notes during test or exam might be caught. That was an example of cheating in our life, so nowadays we have to be liar sometimes. Why we say so? It is because to protect ourselves from any exploitation from other dangerous but not likes an examination cheater.

As recommendation, make sure or be careful whether the lecturer is noticed that you are cheating and get caught. Plus, the notes are in your hand. Then, they will notify to your professor or your dean of your actions and automatically you will get punished that effect to your future and wasting time of your life. The best policy is not to cheat.

That is all from us thank you………….=)

My Top 5 Awesome Things.

Assalamualaikum and peace to all….

What you love is a sign from your higher self of what you are to do." Some people will say that what you wear is what you are. It just the same but, there are also a question that what you will choose, either quantity is important or the quality? For me myself, both are not important at all. The most important for me, what I wear and what I own is must be comfort, efficient and nice just for me.

The most awesome thing in my life is my N95 Nokia phone. its maybe sounds normal for others. But, it is my highest priority in my life. As a daughter that lives far away from the family, the only way to connect with my family is just by using phone. It is also special because it is my birthday present for my 19th birthday. Even though most of my friends used recent model of phones, my phone is enough for me.

Next is my watch. It is a gift from a friend. As a person who really cares about punctuality, watch is the MUST accessory and I have to wear it wherever I go. If not, something is just missing in me and I will not comfort with myself for that entire of life.

Then, the third awesome thing of mine is my laptop. I cannot finish my assignment or any task if I don’t have it. It is very valuable for me. Everybody knew that laptop is very kind of important thing during studying right.

Then is my Hyundai accent car, this car really helps me in order to finish my job, travelling, or even to get my extra pocket money. I really love it very much.

Lastly, is my calculator Casio 350, I already used it since I was in form two which my age was 14 years old. Can you imagine how long my calculator being my friend and service for me but now I cannot use it anymore because I need more sophisticated and full of functions calculator. Therefore there a lot mathematical and complicated calculation that I have to face this time so I need the suitable calculator, but the old one would not being forgotten.

Students must vote during the 'Students' Election' because..

Assalamualaikum and peace to all….

"Voting is the first act of building a community as well as building a country"-John Ensign.

Look, how important voting is important for a us. It is the same thing goes to our last
"Student Election " . As a student, it is our responsibility as one of the community in MICET to vote to choose the respective leaders to be our representatives. we have to think wisely that their decision will affect us in a good term or else. Besides, after all the voting has been counted, and the representative has been selected, we have no right to complaint for the decision.The last thing is, we are capable to voting , so, why do are decline to do it?

All of our representatives have their own planning on the future for the community. Sometimes, their decision are just for their own good and benefit. Hence, there is nothing for us. But, if the leader is hardly willing to be the representative for the community voice, the goodness will reflect to us.

Referred to the point before, if their decision is no benefit to us the community, we cannot complaint. It is because of we are not voting at all.
The last reason is you are able to voting on the day. We have no excuses not to attend and fulfill our responsibility. The voting ceremony is held in the MICET. We doest need to have a vehicle to be there. The time duration for voting also in a long period. So, there is no reason not to attend and voting for the right representatives.

As the conclusion, we, as the student of MICET we are the person who are make the decision for our own future.
