Results: #adidasBloggerCup


www.ruxyn.com had the privilege to participate in the #adidasBloggerCup campaign and ended in 3rd place after 4 weeks and 8 questions! A fellow Gooner, Mogan, who entered the contest from my blog has also won a jersey. So happy for him! Thank you everyone who joined this contest and I hope you had fun as much as I did :) 

On another note...



"Good things come in small packages" Well, that does not mean you can't upsize the good thing right? :P Chatime's Supercups promotion. RM9.90 per cup but got this at RM15 during happy hour. Happy or what?

Will be lining up some updates right after I finish my last paper on Wednesday. Stay tuned!

Hi, July

We are just days away from FIFA World Cup finals! I'm not sure how many crazy fans out there have been staying up to watch all the football matches. I'm rooting for Germany! I hope Holland goes through to the finals so that Germany can whack them. :P

I haven't watch any match cause the hours are just too crazy, I need sleep - especially since I have four classes at 8am in a week the whole semester. I'm glad the first semester for year 3 has come to an end (almost, finals not over yet) in less than 6 weeks cause the lecturers have already stopped teaching. Then I reflect back, what have I learn, what have I been doing?!


*insert unrelated picture*


Internship has been rather good so far. I'm so glad I took up this internship because I really love my supervisor and my "colleagues". Having given the opportunity to brainstorm for ideas even as an intern is great, but I think having flexible working hours is even greater. I love the freedom given :P Thank God I didn't have to do the "typical intern jobs" like making coffee, stapling or photocopying. You know, those horror stories about interns being bullied and stuff.

Somehow, I've been doing a lot of social eating in the last few months. I'm trying my best to cut down. 80% of my expenditure goes to food. Eating out is costly nowadays cause one meal typically costs about RM20. :< Gone are the days where I can have a nice meal with drinks for less than RM10.

Kkkkk... life haven't been very exciting aside from internship.

Anyway jie, so glad you're around. Happy belated birthday.

First Look: Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 10400mAh




Finally got myself Xiaomi's Mi Power Bank. Many thanks to Debra for helping me secure one exclusive unit at only RM 36! It was difficult to get a unit directly from Xiaomi because they only sell limited units at a certain time and it's usually sold out within 1-2 minutes after the sale period is open. Crazy? Smart marketing tactic nevertheless, creating so much hype.



The items you find in the box are pretty straight forward. The power bank itself, a (pretty short) micro USB cable and a user guide. Unfortunately, as you can see, no charger is included but for RM 36, I did not really expect to find one.

I've yet to really use the power bank yet. I hope to make a review soon after this. I hope.

Till then!

Knowing Yourself

Is it me or do I see many psychology majors in my uni are planning to take a different path right after they finish their degree? Some that I've noticed include venturing into music, entrepreneurship, the Youtube trend (making videos) and photography. So it leaves me wondering, why do these bunch of students took up psychology in the first place?

Actually I've asked this question many times to friends and acquaintances that I've known. And most of the answers were, "I want to know myself better". I was really surprised because it was not something that I would have expected from people who are studying about human mental functions and behavior. You mean the main reason they have took up this course was because they wanted more information about themselves? 

After almost three years now, I guess they finally know themselves better (thanks to the course?) and also they finally know what they want because like I said, they are looking forward to a different future after degree. One thing that I observed from these individuals are the fact they are not interested in the course anymore, even going as far to say that they are beginning to "lose the passion" for psychology.

Their passion in different things besides psychology is obvious. Just take a look at the things they posted on Facebook. Like many people, they are looking to make a name for themselves. These are students who are actively involved in various activities in and out of university, seeking new opportunities. And then it leaves me thinking - aiya, they should have taken up communication and I wonder why they did not. Many things that these people are doing are very much related to communication and media. 

Anyway, just penning my thoughts here. My friends and I from the communication department are on the right path because what we plan to do after this is related to our degree. On a side note, I think communication students got to be prepared because if the psychology students are sticking to their plans, they will be out to steal our jobs :P
