From observation: Lesson #1

If you are 25, a degree holder and hold a career as a professional, and you are not knowledgeable about even the simplest general knowledge (like 'Who is the current DPM?' It's not even 'Who sat in the position of the United States Secretary of State before Condoleezza Rice?') even a school-goer knows, it is definitely NOT COOL.

Do not exaggerate on your ignorance. It is obviously not something to boast about.

People may not think your mind is too occupied on something else; people would just think you're dumb. Even a pretty face won't be able to cover it.

So don't show your dumbness just to appear cool. It won't work. Especially with me. It won't elevate my impression on you.

Well Ira. I found worse.
A few days before the international release, a friend of mine who live in KL did not have the faintest idea that Quantum Of Solace is actually a Bond movie.
Hahaha.

Have a safe trip. :)

Hmm, mebe ur fren ingat Quantum of Solace tu ada kena ngena dgn Quantum Leap kut en. Dayat.. haha.

Hmm je Kyoko?

Thanks En. Dayat. I dunno what to expect nevertheless.

desh said...

Yes.. Quantum of Leap... Or Quantum of Physics. Haha.
What remains mystery here is why at the end of the movie Bond said to M, "Well M, you were right about Vesper."
What did the guy tell or did not tell Bond right after he said, "Please make it quick."

Ira.
I'm sure you will experience a great point of view of another culture. :)

hmm.. Quantum Leap.. followed that tv show during primary school years.. haven't got the faintest idea what it was about. Leaping from people to people. Living other lives.

Just went thru SPA General knowledge exam. no idea on how to answer all questions. who determined Malaysia acts are general knowledge?

Sharifah Zahira Syed Iedin said...

I think it is called general knowledge when everyone is expected to know that particular thing, it is called a general knowledge.

Some acts in Malaysia can be called general knowledge, since some of them are so overrated. Like ISA.

all the best for ur SPA exam results Muspa!

Ira,

Sesungguhnya, siapa-siapa yang menidakkan keperluan Ilmu dan Pengetahuan, akan di-siksa dengan anak anak yang dungu.

Hehe.
