I am not going to talk more on how creative japan creates entertainment for their children and also adolescence, not only in japan but through out Asia. In this post, I will expressed my amazed about one particular creation in Japan entitled Death Note.
Earlier, I was not truly aware about this Manga that was published in Japan few years ago. I have heard about it from my friends saying that it was the best Manga he ever read. I did not give a damn about it. Later, last years suddenly the Movie Death Note was release and it was inspire from the Manga Death Note. I read the article about the movie in the news and it was so convincing so I went to watch the movie in the cinema.
The movie was amazing. Better than any detective or spy type of movie. Truly amazing. I give the first movie of death note the ranking 5/5. Surprisingly, lots of my friends who already read the Manga said that the movie was only ‘ok’. Not following the real storyline of the comic. It is more to inspired by the comic and not adapted from the comic.
The second movie of Death Note ( The last name) or the final episode of it was released a few months later at February 2007 here in Malaysia. I went to watch it again because it was sequel from the previous movie. I did not really satisfy about the second movie. I only gave 3/5 for it. Watching the second movie make me things, why they said Death Note is the best anime. Even bleach can beat Death Note if you watch the second movie.
Later I was informed that death Note anime was released earlier in japan and there is still on going collections of the anime to be downloaded in the internet. Thus, I find for it and even ask borrow from my friends to watch the anime that is ‘the real story line’ of Death Note.
The first 9 episodes… my comment is… my rating is 6/5. It was really that great/ Clean shot storyline with cool music. The anime was truly amazing.
9 episodes is not enough for me. I was really excited to know more about Death Note. Thus I realized that the comic was already completed in publishing in Japan. Thus I went from there to here, wandering around trying to search for the comic and finally I found it from one of my friends.
I started to read the comic on Monday and finish it the next Monday. Only 108 chapters consist of a full packed truly amazing story. At this particular time, I have become one of the fans of Death Note.
Why is the story so amazing? Better than the other anime in Japan. And it was given an honor to become the Best Manga in Japan 2006. I never doubt about the awards because Death Note deserved to be the best. I have been informed that death note was created by a novelist. Later it was transcripted into a graphical illustration to become Death Note. A graphical novel of Death Note also had been released in Japan.
Now my intention only to death note. Even though I have read it until the last episode but I still want to watch the up coming anime. Because it was really ‘live’. At this time, I have the same opinion with my friends, Death note The movie was totally crap. They were destroying the real story of death note.
Death note is the best.
What is Death Note?

With a pile of work to do, a thousand words and facts to remember, with unfinished work everywhere, and the final examination is 3 days away, I considered my 21st birthday the worse birthday I ever had in my life.
Would it be memorable? Of course. I will remember this time forever in my life. It is normal for u to remember the great time of our life and the worse part of it. I’m expecting my 21st birthday would be the most exciting birthday in my life. Just because I feel it was really cool to be 21. It make you step further to the real world of an adult. Not a kids anymore. So I planned to hold a great party for my 21st birthday and that is 6 months ago. After 6 moths past, and my birthday was around the corner, I was a little disappointed because my birthday was not in a holiday. So I guess I have to celebrate it with my friends here in my University. But guess what, just 2 weeks before my birthday party, an announcement about our final exam was made and the final exam would start on 26th or march. 3 days after my exam. Plus there will be no study week for us and the last class is on 21 March. On 22nd March we have research proposal presentation and on 26th March ( that is on the exam day), we have to submit our written proposal to the lecturer. Great activity to ruined up my birthday party.
Stucking here with the works and 4 modules consisting Neurology and mental health, Heamatology and endocrine system, gastrointestinal system and clinical epidemiology, to be study only in 3 days before the exam.
Plus, on 23rd March, that is on my birthday, there will be a module test on Clinical Epidemiology with 20 marks carry up to the final.
There goes my 21st birthday.
Singing a birthday song along with my roommate for myself at 12 am 23rd mach 2006, I celebrate my first second of my 21 with reading a full facts paper for my clinical epidemiology paper. I was thinking, why it become so hard like this. So tough for my first minutes in my 21.
This is the intro I guess. The intro to my adult life. So I guess it will become this hard and tough for me for the next-next year. Thinking that I would enter Clinical years in Hospital later, this must be it. This must be as tough as I could imagine.
So what so special about 21st birthday? There is nothing special about it but it is meaningful, cause at the time where I was very stress and tense, there always be someone out there and in there with me. Thinking that I would never fight alone. This is the best part of my 21st birthday.10 am 23rd march 2007.

I always define my life is busy before. Because i felt that before this i never feel that busy. So i think that is the terminal defintion for me. The terminal defintion of busy.
Since last week, my life change a bit. Or more precisely, my definition of busy is altered. This is because i have enter the second stage of busy ( or stress)
Busy seems to have this kind of grading. A stage. Same as super saiya level in dragon ball. Before this busy means class everyday with tons of things to study and revise at night. but starting from last week, we have lecture everyday until 5 pm, plus we have research proposal to be propose. we have drama practice, awe have language class and even now when i'm writing this blog, i'm in my school computer lab with some of my group member still tryinf to force our eyes to open and finish our research proposal. And in next week is our module test and i havent study anything.
3 days after module test will our final year test. With no study week and full schedule for research proposal at night, i dont know what to suspect for my final.
Also next week will be my Language class oral test. So another thing to be considered now. THis is what i call the second stage of my busy life.
To say that this will become my terminal definition of busy will not be possible again. THis is because, we have been told that our senior in the hospital were 100% more busier than us. Thus, i conclude that they will be more stage of busy coming soon.
I dont know what will happen to my brain after this. I think i will never have a normal thinking like a normal person anymore after entering this school. I even can't think when to stop working and when to sleep. Everything start to become no border for me.
I have no regret.
