Muslim Scholars. This is unbelievable! (Part 2)

I'm back active again on my blog finishing all the drafts that have been left abandoned for quite some time now.
My aim this time is to continue my previous post about the Muslim Scholars back then who did a lot of breakthroughs, especially in Science and Mathematics.

For this entry, I am going to share another three scholars who made a lot of contributions in Science and Mathematics. Their contributions led to what we have and studying today. They contributed a lot to Islam and the whole mankind. This is what we seek for in the Muslim World instead of fighting over power that later becomes an excuse for the Western superpowers like USA and Russia to interfere with national sovereignty. 


His full name was Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Abul-Rayham Al-Biruni. He was born in Haran, Syria in 973AD. His productions exceed 146 titles in more than 20 different disciplines ranging from astronomy to mathematics, mathematical geography, religion, and philosophy. However, a large portion of his works were mathematical-related disciplines which consist of 96 titles. Out of all works that Al-Biruni worked on, only 22 works survived and only 13 works have been published.

Two books of Al-Biruni that can be highlighted here which are Al-Qanun al-Mas'udi (astronomical encyclopedia) and Tahdid (the demarcation of coordinates of cities).

Public Transports Under Construction in Kuala Lumpur

I went to Tokyo, Japan last summer, one of the cities in the world with excellent public transportation systems. Exploring the whole city was very convenient with help from well-integrated railway networks across the metropolitan region.

 In addition to friendly society, the public transports in Tokyo encourage me to revisit the city in the future. The reason is that I can control my budget since travelling by train is not only fast but cheap at the same time. Planning my itinerary for my trip to Tokyo was quick, thanks to their metro systems.

When visiting other countries, I learn from what's good in those countries and try to bring back home those positivities. At the same time, I tend to be so thankful when visiting other less developed countries since we have escaped problems that they are struggling with. These two are some of the inputs I gained when travelling overseas other than their authentic foods. Hiks.

Me being a patriot, migration is the last option for me. Mahatma Gandhi once said, "You must be the change you wish to see in this world". Thus, it is unfair if I am comparing Malaysia with some highly developed countries and migrating there simply because those countries are much better. My principle is that I should work together in making Malaysia even better than those developed countries and avoiding the mistakes done by failed countries. That's it.

Top 10 Schools in KL for SPM 2016

The ranking is based on Gred Purata Sekolah (GPS) or School Average Grade. GPS is used to rank the schools instead of percentage of straight A's students because it counts every single student in that particular school - not only the successful ones.

Hence, all schools should focus on all students to achieve lower GPS (the lower the better).

So, here are the top 10 schools in Kuala Lumpur for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2016

10) SM Agama Kuala Lumpur (SMAKL)

9) SMK St. Mary

The Great Lab Summer Workshop 2016

I just returned from Penang attending  4-day The Great Lab Summer Workshop 2016 (TGL 2016) organized by CREST. TGL 2016 was held at the Crest Office, Sains@USM, Bayan Lepas, Penang from 21st until 24th  July 2016.

The Great Lab (TGL) is an initiative by CREST to introduce students to the Electrical & Electronics (E&E) industry and on top of the summer workshop, there is also TGL Industry Challenge which consists of real industry problems. Students will work in a team to prepare technical proposals for the industry challenge and present the ideas to the panel of judges from the industry such as Intel, Altera, Vitrox, and UST Global.

Enough on TGL, a little introduction about CREST.
CREST stands for Collaborative Research in Engineering, Science, & Technology and it was formed as the catalyst for Malaysia's E&E. CREST will accelerate Malaysia's economic growth by creating a vibrant R&D ecosystem for E&E industry, and bring together Industry-Academia for collaborative R&D.

Don't worry, spiders,
I keep house

- Kobayashi Issa ( translated by Robert Hass)

When I was in secondary school while studying a poem, I look forward to the brief analysis of the poem by my Literature in English teacher. Yes, I took the subject for my SPM back in 2012.

When reading a poem, we are like reading an empty or meaningless passage which sometimes made me annoyed. We understand the sentences but we can't get anything or any message from those sentences. Imagine that! Haha.

Just like the poem I'm sharing in this entry, it has its own meaning. A very beautiful one indeed by Kobayashi Issa. It's too short that made that Haiku (Japanese poem) a very deep one.

Kobayashi Issa.
