For me, it can be classified as something that we need to understand. Because, this problems may guide us to a better life. Whatever happen in our life, just be understandable and positive because not all our bad is destined.
No one was born to be an evil and no one was born genius. But all of us were born with one target, 'to live a life'. It is about what we want to be or to do to proceed our life. So if things were going bad, maybe it's time for us to look at ourselves.
Just remember one thing, 'life has full of opportunity'. If we cannot see it, then we need to create it. We need to be a winner in our inner selves.
So, what are we waiting for?
Let us enter the new world together and build a new destiny..

Designed by Argentine-American architect César Pelli, the Petronas Towers were completed in 1998 and became the tallest buildings in the world on the date of completion. They were built on the site of Kuala Lumpur's race track. Because of the depth of the bedrock, the buildings were built on the world's deepest foundations. The 120-meter foundations were built by Bachy Soletanche, and required massive amounts of concrete.
The 88-floor towers are constructed largely of reinforced concrete, with a steel and glass façade designed to resemble motifs found in Islamic art, a reflection of Malaysia's Muslim religion. Another Islamic influence on the design is that the cross-section of the towers is based on a Rub el Hizb (albeit with circular sectors added to meet office space requirements).
Below the twin towers is Suria KLCC, a shopping mall, and Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, the home of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.
Petronas, Malaysia's national oil company, set out to build the world's tallest building. Although other buildings such as the Sears Tower have higher occupied floors, a higher antenna, and a higher roof, the Petronas Twin Towers' spires are classified as architectural details and rise to 452 m (1483 feet), giving it the greatest structural height until Taipei 101. Taking advantage of the rules governing building measurements (counting spires but not antennas) has generated controversy over the towers' claim to the title. However, the tradition of including the spire on top of a building and not including the antenna dates back to the rivalry between the Chrysler Building and the 40 Wall Street.
Other buildings have used spires to increase their height but have always been taller overall to the pinnacle when trying to claim the title. In the aftermath of the controversy, the rules governing official titles were partially overhauled, and a number of buildings re-classified structural antenna as architectural details to boost their height rating (even though nothing was actually done to the building).

In MARDI, we had a chance to try the foods made by strawbery. We bought strawbery to bring back to our college.
We also had a chance to go to Honey Farm where there were many flowers and bees.
In the end of our journey, there was our friend, a guy who bought the flowers from Strawbery Farm and gave it to each of us in the bus. It such a romantic scene.
Finally, we go back with happy moments. There were an unforgetable memories for us.
