Some of my interests are

So my LinkedIn profile states that:

Interests: Information Security, Network Security, Networking, Social Engineering, NMAP, C, Web Technologies, Internet, Linux/UNIX

 These are my interests true, but professional interests. I would like to see myself as a person having quite a handy bit of knowledge on one, or many of them. 

I really want to include stuff like

1) Cooking
I would love to create something and relish it.. Yumm

2) Piano Playing Like An Expert
I can key a few seconds of "Fur Elise", "Turkish March", and millions ob bollywood hits. But I would like to be able to play on real big big big piano when everyone is looking and people go like "Wooow Wooow"

3) Kashmiri Songs
Something I set up a website for. This goes in direct relation with my interest #3. So I sing Kashmiri songs while playing my paino (instrument) on a violinishhhhh tone... AaaaaaaAAaaaaAaa

4) Robotics and stuff
Watching a robot jump around is cool.. Yaay or nay?

5) ART
Best for the last. I love to sketch, and draw stuff.. I am good at copying stuff, as in see something in front of me, and then try to sketch it. I am bad if it requires guess work. Maximum I will come up with are abstract shapes and few trees..


Ixnay on the oggieday

I just came to know there is a language game called as "Pig Latin" in English. 

Here is how my name sounds in it:

Aziqay Amoonmay Shrafay..

Which is kind of cool.

Somethings are better left unsaid

I am walking around in one of the buildings of Kulliyah Of Engineering. I passed by one guy who used to be my tutor few years back for "Differential Calculus". Without a second thought, I presented a smile and gave Salaam. Then I asked him a question that should be never asked.

Brother, have you finished with your PhD?

His smile shook, and his eyebrows twitched. He replied, " Umm, in the middle of it."

I realized I wasn't supposed to ask that question. I was better off asking him about his pay or if he was a girl; his birthday or phone number.

Lesson Learnt.. Master is going to be fun.. :S

My first class after Bachelors

My first class at IIUM as a masters student.

So these are my fellow students. They look pretty normal.

One of them has been my lab demonstrator few years ago for 'Digital Logic Design'.  I remember her as the person who wanted to find a good boy for her sister. (She thought I was social, knew many) I remember that day as the start of a long phase of having to avoid her.

One of them kept interrupting the Professor. Too proud eay? I have never witnessed this kind of audience. He just wanted to interrupt everything. Well, maybe its normal at this level. All I know is that we used to be silent lambs during our bachelors. Counting the seconds till the end of the misery.

One thing I couldnt fail to notice was the abundance of foreigners. During these last few years in my computer major classes, I have seen none in my class. I am the only guided (misguided) guy to have the courage to chose this major. Everyone else was Malay. All assignments with them, all presentation, all group projects with them. I had learnt to appreciate their uniqueness (Unlike other foreigners here who find them weird). Now they are all non-Malaysians. I feel alone.

I was the only one wearing blue jeans.
