Earth Hour

What was I doing during Earth Hour?

I have no idea. Simply because I don`t even realized that Earth Hour came and go. Troubled with my Final Year Project, I had very little empathy towards anything at all. Environment, something that I quite passionate about, took a back seat. Simply put, my 'Earth Hour' had simply faded.

I was talking to the mechanic from the Exhaust modification workshop. Hoping to get some information on the structure of the exhaust system, I questioned him about the catalytic converter. I was surprised that he answer he just usually take it out and throw them away.

*the catalytic converter ensure all the black fume and harmful emission is converted into carbon dioxide and water.

Of course, in doing that you gain a little bit of efficiency and power in the engine, at the expense of the environment. I could have at least contributed and attempt to convince him not to do so. But the lack of knowledge probably prevented me from saying anything. So much for studying Internal Combustion Engines, Thermodynamics and Heat Transfers.

You know all those common folks sayings that studying so much at university is actually pointless. At this point, they are quite right.

Screw journalism liability :)

I`ve almost stop writing anything here since I relaunched Nexus. It`s ironic that I tried to make document events for everyone else, I completely forgotten about my own. Now that I had to let go of writing for the school press to finish up my Final Year Project, I suddenly had the urge to write here again.

There are plenty of things that I should have pen down. My trip to cameron highland, langkawi and genting to name a few. I almost forget what it`s like to write something without trying to be politically correct. Or without caring who my audience is.

Best of all, all it takes to write these few paragraph, is mere 5 minutes :) Yay. I should start blogging. again ;)

This space is my simple escape from the harsh reality. Expect lots of random rants and whining apart from the daily reporting of things going I`m going through.

Take nothing seriously, leave comments, or just a simple hi. The world is getting smaller by the day, why not know each other now. Have fun ya all.

Alex
