Lord Denning

To those who studied law before, Lord Denning is a name that you wont miss. Lord Denning was perhaps the greatest law-making judge of the century and the most controversial. He played a great importance to English law by criticizing and developing it. Loads of his judgements were quoted in various cases. He died 6 weeks after his 100th birthday in 1999.

Going Home!

  • I might be going back to Malaysia earlier! I’m going change my flight from 30th December to 18th December.. weee!
  • I just booked a room in Halifax hall for my winter break. We have to move out from our hall during the winter break for 1 month and then move back in again a month later! shesh man, damn troublesome. Halifax hall is quite nice but the only problem is that they only have one telephone for each corridor, seems that I need to share with my corridor mates. It cost me £58.20 for 5 days, shesh man!
  • Uneventful Day

  • Didn’t do much today. Woke up just in time for my lecture then spend 3 hours in the library studying! weee!
  • I bought cornflake and crisp bread from Somerfield today. *yummy*
  • My mum called me today. She just bought a new car. However, she complains it’s too small for her.
  • Alan Teo’s Birthday 2001

  • It’s Alan Teo‘s birthday yesterday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
  • We had Alan‘s birthday dinner at some Indian restaurant at Glossop Rd. It’s a pretty nice place. They decorated the place something like a high-class restaurant. However, the vitiating problem is the prices. I had a plate of rice with 3 pieces of meat, couple of shrimps and a spoonful of spinach that cost me £8!! After dinner, we went to the union’s bar and had couple of drinks. Nothing much happen, we didn’t get Alan drunk. hehe
  • I lost £5 to Juleun just now! We had a bet on who is going to win the drinking contest between halls. I sided Tapton hall and Juleun supported Ranmoor. The hall that gets the best position wins. It seems that Ranmoor won the 2nd place and Stevenson hall won again for 50 consecutive years!
  • I just found out that my server has been hacked. I even found the backdoor and files left by the hacker. I guess they hacked by exploiting ssh 1.2-47. shesh, and yet the admin hasn’t fix the fucking server yet!
  • Stratford-Upon-Avon, England

  • I went to Stratford-Upon-Avon organised by MASSOC today. It was pretty good. We visited Shakespeare’s museum, birthplace and Nash’s house (great grandson in law of William’s home). Stratford is beautiful. There’s this river where we picnicked and played captain ball. The place was beautified with the falling leaves of autumn and obese geese and ducks with the swimming swans. Although MASSOC is a Malaysian and Singaporean society, other people from other countries went with us, for example, Hong Kong, Japan, China and oh yeah, Ian the guai lou (British guy). The town is quite small but seems cosy maybe because most of the buildings are Tudor houses. Some of the houses were turned into shops. There is this shop selling teddy bears. Outside the shop lies a teddy bear that is ½ head taller than me wearing a British guard uniform.
  • Speaking of Ian, he’s a friendly and funny guy. He never cease to amuse me. He calls himself guai lou (it’s caucasian in cantonese) and could speak Japanese. Apparently he picked it up when he was in Japan during summer. One thing I like about him is his friendliness. Sadly I would say MASSOC is a society filled purely with Asians (no doubt that everyone is asian). Ian didn’t even mind at all, he turned up with no regret. He thanked us as we were departing to our rooms saying that he treated him like a king today. sweet guy 🙂
  • Coincidently, there had a fun fair in the town. It made the whole town so lively! They even had fireworks weeee..! We went home at 6pm and we were given Nasi Lemak for dinner as soon as we reach Sheffield *yummy*
    Some facts I picked up.

  • Stratford is 2 ½ hours away from Sheffield.
  • William Shakespeare‘s parents were John Shakespeare and Mary Arden.
  • He was born on 1564 and died 50+ years later.
  • The higher the ceiling of a Tudor house the richer the owner is.
  • Insane people are classed as criminals during the 16th century till the 18th century. There were jailed and beaten up.
  • Nash married William’s granddaughter, Elizabeth. Elizabeth was 18 and Nash was 36 years old. Eventually Nash died and Elizabeth remarried.
  • Elizabeth never had any children from both of the marriage. Elizabeth was the last descendant of the William Shakespeare family.
