ONLY THE ENGLISH COULD HAVE INVENTED THIS LANGUAGE

English is a lego language as Malay language is, borrowing from many
different sources to make up for its inadequacy! So, it is not so
logical a language linguistically. That explains its many anomalies
and probably, the British concept of democracy, which is only fit for
the British, but not others. Hence, you have democracy in HK only
after the British had left! And of course, only the British could have
left the White Rajah heritage in Borneo!

=======================================================

We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,
Then shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?

Then one may be that, and three would be those,
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger;
neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England.
We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes,
we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,
and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing,
grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend.
If you have a bunch of o! dds and ends
and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English
should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.

In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
We ship by truck but send cargo by ship.
We have noses that run and feet that smell.
We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway.
And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,
while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language
in which your house can burn up as it burns
down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out,
and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

In closing, if Father is Pop, how come Mother not Mop?

AND IF PEOPLE FROM POLAND ARE CALLED POLES

THEN PEOPLE FROM HOLLAND SHOULD BE HOLES

AND THE GERMANS, GERMS

Milling class...

milling class commences this week and overall it was fun learning how to shape our workpiece using machines instead of our own bare hands like last year... seriously now i realise y germany produces the best engineers in the world (sorry lah those who are in US or Aus or UK doing engineering course) coz i heard the germans learn all this stuff when they were in primary or secondary sch... not like us, now only we get to touch machines... haih

read urself wat this thing is...


different types of milling cutters...


my groupmate who din wear his duskcoat... bad example!
also shown in the pic is FP1, a type of milling machine... and the grey case is used to block the high speed chip which can burn u as soon as it touches ur skin... sth to do wif small size and high speed which produces massive heat energy, go figure out urself... physics, blah!
(we din learn how to block the chips in class, we improvise our own one... smart leh... haha)


my workpiece before it is being shaped... the diagramm on the bottom left is the product... maybe will post it up once i finish my project... hopefully it turn out to be like the diagramm shown... haha

Happy faces...

whenever i feel that the weight of the world is crushing down on me, i always think of the little kids tat i had the privilege to meet during my occasional trip to the longhouses... having simple life and less worries than the so-called town ppl, i think they are the happiest ppl on earth... they can be easily satisfied by even playing games and they really giv their all in everything that they do... so y m i still holding back myself in doing certain things? tat is the most important thing i've learnt ever since i fall in love wif them...

Superman

“Even though you’ve been raised as a human being
you're not one of them. They can be a great people,
Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show
the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good,
I have sent them you… my only son”
