Bridge competition

hmm..3 weeks more before the competition and my group don't start anything yet. i don't know either we can make it or not. i'm a little bit worried about the model that we need to construct now..we dont know where to get the balsa wood but thanks to chi lai, one of my friend that also join the competition. he told me where to get it but i'm still worry because he told me that they also have to book the materials because that shop doesn't have much stock. then, they only can get it one week after booking..waa..what i should do?? if i book the balsa wood tomorrow, it means, we can get it and start construct our bridge next week and then we only have 2 week more including the one week hari raya holiday..*sigh* we also need to think about the multimedia presentation and the poster..

and the price for each meter of balso wood is RM4 and we need more than 30. that means, for 30 strips (1m each) we need to pay RM 120..if we can't get from that shop, we need to go to the penang island and my friend say, it cost us RM6 for each meter.. 2 ringgit different, but same grade of balsa wood..nonsense..we must try to get it from the cheap shop*another sigh*

4 weeks before...

proposal submission. we juz do simple proposal, only 6 page if i not mistaken. without any nice graphical pictures of our bridge. juz the normal one using autocad..haha.. when i saw another group done with the nice proposal, our group feel a little down and think maybe we not be selected..and sori for my friends, we don't tell anybody about we join up the competition. i feel a little shy because worried if we not selected for the final..haha.. yela, bila dok bising2 ckp masuk bridge competition and last2 xterpilih then terus senyap kan..malu je..haha. then, if i'm not mistaken, there are only 17 groups from USM that submit the proposal. thanks to our lecturer, especially, as our supervisor, Mr. Mustafasanie that helped us a lot..:)

Artwork Engineer.. gile poyo..haha

1 weeks before...

p/s : this post is juz for suka-suka..*peace*


  1. aha!! did bridge-related project once. sangat tak suka!! haha. maybe sbb ako dak mechi kot. and learning about statics and materials and whatsoever (things related to civil engineering class) is such a hassle. anyhow good luck for the competition pijat!! gambatte!!!

  2. haha..thanks.. xsuka ke..hehe..nk tau x..bridge is one of difficult structures to design and construct..not like a normal building.. mechi n civil mmg la xsama ama..haha. but, if u r a civil student n learn more, then u can appreciate how nice and unique it is..jd civil engineer yg bagus ssh tau but interesting..haha.

  3. haha. pijat. i'm really not into bridges. maybe kalau i'm a civil engineer, then i'll like bridges.haha. but for now, i prefer cars and airplane. lol

  4. haha..betoi2.. good for u as a mechi student, ama..:P

  5. Hey buat cepat. Have you gotten the balsa wood? If money matters, talk to along! :P

  6. isk2..not yet..ssh nk cari..n grade yg kami nk kene booking dlu..maybe nk gi tgk ari ni kayu tu..along nk sponsor ke??haha.. no need la
