Debate Vice Canselor Cup USIM : Day 1 and Day 2

Yesterday was totally an exhausting day for me; in fact nothing better than the day before it. But the last 2 days were such a big day for me, because the VC Cup in USIM for debating were actually on the run. 


Here are what our English debating team had been facing since the last two days. Breaking our back just to win.


26 / 2 / 2011, 09:45 a.m. FSU, First Round


We were allocated to be against FPQS B (Faculty of Quran and Assunnah) in the first ever match. Wow, being against seniors was one thing, but debating over Faculty of Quran and Assunnah students were totally another thing. Winning seems to be out of our range. Impossibility. 


And the motion given is,


"The House Believes That We Should Stop Sending Our Athletes Overseas"


Impossibility, again.


But, we were actually over-estimated them, and eventually underestimated ourselves. We've given our best shot against them. And we unexpectedly won with kinda big gap; 11 on the margins! And I was selected to be the best speaker in that round. The judicator must be kidding!


Alhamdulillah. First ever winnings!



12:00 p.m., FSU, 2nd round


We were tossed, and allocated to oppose another FPQS team; FPQS B Team. Again, against seniors but we were now start to believe in turning impossibility into possibility. Probably fueled by the previous winning. Perhaps, yeah.


And the motion was,


"This House Would Demolish All Paid TV Channels"


This time, we were kinda confident with ourselves. Our self-esteem obviously helped a lot. And yes, we won again, with my team mate, Afifi to be the best speaker. Alhamdulillah. 



2.30 p.m., FSU. 3rd Round


Last round for the day. Quite tiring, but we still have to get through this. ( I didn't know debating was this exhausting, really) And we were tossed to oppose the brainy Medic Faculty students; FPSK A. 


We were nailed!


This time, the motion was;


"This House Believes Baby Dumpers Should Be Sentenced To Death Penalty"


This actually had brought some hopes, coz we were quite prepared for this motion. However FPSK was fierceful, and quite thoughtful. They're not anticipated to be this good! They gave kinda good points and often "facepalmed" us in our own points. They did such a very good rebuttals. 


But we were saved when the judicator realised that there was ONE point that they've taken so lightly that we've been earlier mentioned. And for that reason, we won again! 


God mercy us! Alhamdulillah! That night we have a tight preparation to face the next day. For sure, tomorrow'll gonna be a real tough day.


27/2/2011, 09:00 a.m., FSU, 4th Round


I didn't feel good today. Coz you know what, we were nominated to be against the biggest rival in this tournament; of course FSU A (Faculty of Syariah and Law), which means that they'll be using all the acts and laws they know as Law students. In fact, they looked exactly like a team of lawyers, with the case and coat they were in.


And as the Science Tech students, what do we have? Nothing comparable. They were far a better team obviously.


The motion we got this time was;


"The House Believes That Imam Muda TV Programme Degrades The Religion"


Oh God, we feel doomed already. That's kind of tough motion. Winning is a miracle. Totally.


As expected, we lose to them. But its okay, coz we were prepared to lose to them. Plus I personally think it would be unfair if the judges think us to win against them. FSU's were obviously dominated the game. 


How we were going to win debating with a team of lawyers when we are only a Science Tech students? You can make a joke out of that!

11:00 a.m., FSU, 5th Round


This was the last match of the day; indicating as it was the elimination stage. In the end of the day we shall know which team shall be qualified to quarter final next week. And for that, we couldn't afford to lose this last match.


But you know what, we were tossed to be against our own friends from PT A (which all are Tamhidi students just like us). This was worse than facing FSU, coz we, no matter what, must've to face our own friends! Urgh,  must do the best!


And the motion was;


"This House Would Abolish Duty On Imported Cars"


Ahh, this would be risky! Coz both teams, KKNC and PT A, knew the same exact points! We've disscussed together last night, FYI. And how we're gonna go rouge, and turn against each other within the same points? 


Then we had a really good debate. Both teams were equally fierce and combative. But unexpectedly, we lose to them with just ONE margin! What a close call! 


And then as we waited for the announcements for which teams were going to proceed to the quarter final next week, based from the team rankings, we were all got into our own nerves. Of course nobody wnted to get eliminated. That'll just gonna be a great loss we've came this far up.


Minutes later, we were announced and the result was..



We've made our ways to quarter final! Most importantly all of our Tamhidian teams; KKNC, PT A and PT B, all successfully proceed to quarter final! Alhamdulillah..


Congratulations to all!




Few snaps :)









Meet us in quarter final next week ya :)

Debate : Fluently Outspoken

Being outspoken is superb if you were to be a debater. I gotta say that I'm not a good debater, coz I'm not in too much sort of a critical minded person, I can't speak fast and fluent, and worst I sometimes cannot remember some absolute words in emphasizing my stand, even when debating. I would like to get rid of all of these weakness but I don't know how :(


This girl amazed me. I admired her talent, really do.



I wondered when on the world am I ever gonna be in her level :(

I'm so not an English debater!!

For the first time in a lifetime, there's a reliable Internet connection here at my hostel. Yeah the connection is damn that poor, yet its still better than nothing isn't it? Plus its free. :)

But there's something else bigger than that came to happen here. After I returned to my campus and got my mid semester examination results, my English paper shocked me out. For the first time here, I got 9.0 for English!

(and that's a true bitch ass slap there to me!)

But soon there's something else worst than that; I was proposed to be in the English debate team by our English lecturer! 

Urgh?? What the heck?? 

BBBUUUUUUUURRRRRRNNNNNNEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDD!!!

That was a strike, but sooner I learned that there's an audition to get into that team, and I felt saved already. (Of course I planned to give my worst shot there, so I wouldn't by any chance, will have to risk my chance to pass the audition.) 

And after the audition, I was very sure that I wouldn't get it. Coz the motion I was given was really sucks and I did gave them somekind of weird cockamy ideas of mine. And of course others points are obviously better than mine. Yes, just like I hoped to.

But friends..Surprisingly, unpleasantly, and unexpectedly..





I GOT IT. -______________________-

Mike, The Headless Chicken

I bet none of you have heard of such a news like this. This kinda awesome! I found this on http://www.funnymos.com







"Mike the Headless Chicken was a Wyandotte rooster that lived for 18 months after its head had been cut off. Thought by many to be a hoax, the bird was taken by its owner to the University of Utah in Salt Lake City to establish its authenticity.
On September 10, 1945, Mike’s owners, Lloyd and Clara Olsen, decided that it was time to slaughter a group of birds, some to sell and to prepare others for themselves. Mike was one of them. Olsen failed to completely decapitate the bird, missing the jugular vein and leaving one ear and most of the brain stem intact.
(WTH??)
Mike was still able to balance on a perch and walk clumsily; he even attempted to preen and crow, although he could do neither. After the bird did not die, a surprised Mr. Olsen decided to continue to care permanently for Mike, feeding him a mixture of milk and water via an eyedropper; he was also fed small grains of corn. Mike occasionally choked on his own mucus, which the Olsen family would clear using a syringe.


mike

Being headless did not keep Mike from putting on weight; at the time of his beheading he weighed two and a half pounds, but at the time of his death this had increased to nearly eight.
Once his fame had been established, Mike began a career of touring sideshows in the company of such other creatures as a two-headed calf. He was also photographed for dozens of magazines and papers, featuring in Time and Life magazines. Olsen drew criticism from some for keeping the headless chicken alive.
Olsen’s success resulted in a wave of copycat chicken beheadings, but no other chicken lived for more than a day or two.
Mike the Headless Chicken is now an institution in Fruita, Colorado, with an annual “Mike the Headless Chicken Day”, the third weekend of May, starting in 1999.
Events held include the “5K Run Like a Headless Chicken Race”, egg toss, “Pin the Head on the Chicken”, the “Chicken Cluck-Off”, and “Chicken Bingo”, in which chicken droppings on a numbered grid choose the numbers."


This kind of tragic, isn't it? She could even walk without her head!  -___-


 Well, nothing seems to be impossible.

=)

Punctuation Is Powerful!

Punctuation can make a world of difference! So have a respect :)




Now you know why punctuation error is one of the offence that could grade you down to C in your English paper.. =.=

Why Durians Are The Strongest Fruit On Earth?

Why durians are said to be the strongest fruit amongst others? Way to think;



Strong shells? NOPE. Coconut's shells are obviously harder.

Big-sized? NOPE. They surely can't beat watermelons in size.

Extreme survival? NOPE. They can't live in insufficiency of water.

Sweet taste? A BIG NOPE. And why the hell is it taste got matter with this? Go away!






So why? Well..








Can't you see the 6 packs??
Hehe..


Nice Push Ups Eh?
