Thinking and wasting time

哇,我好像用我头脑用太多了,所以当我在思想时,每当我一倒上床,我就不知不觉地睡着了。然后自己起来才发觉自己已睡了三十分钟,“时间过得好快”的念头立即闪过我的头脑。哈哈。 非常感谢主,使我们的那prototype能过应用,没有什么不适。现在大家正在为那真正的system在抓头发了。哈哈,我们昨天讨论了一个下午,从四点至七点多,把工作分好,希望星期五能够交上我们的assignment 2。哈哈。

其他的科目看来也不是什么我可以放下不管的。也要时时盯着,这样就不会两败俱伤了。哈哈。求主继续的带领我和我的组员能够分工合作,大家欢喜快乐,能够把自己分内的事在deadline之前做好。哈哈。

下面的图案我只是放好看罢了。哈哈。

Great to see it working...

哈哈,昨晚我test我们group-pql的code,看看是否能给一些我自己所作出来的成绩。感谢主,一切都好。哈哈。非常高兴,现在只剩下另一边还没做好,所以我也不断努力想办法帮助他们。希望他们做得顺利。我也一边思想那真正的东西了(因为我们现在做的只是prototype,是给我们适应,还有推动我们去思考那project。那老师还跟我们说这只是个试用品罢了。哇,一个试用品就弄得我们想了好多天才想到个办法去了解和implement。Lecturer还说他会在下堂lecture说怎样做那“分字”功能,但是跟我教group-pkb的是有不同之处。只盼望不要把我那group-pkb搞乱了才好。哈哈。因为当我们深思时,我们会忘记了一些我们曾经了解的,那就是我所谓的挣扎,哈哈。 我也挣扎了很多天,才想通的,看来我的第一,二年的基础没有建好,才会如此的不确定我所思想的。

今天Delina姐妹来到NUS,跟我们在NUH Enclave享用午餐。我吃了一碗面粉馃(找不到“米”之旁,只好委屈一下,希望读者谅解,哈哈)。跟science canteen一样的,那面粉馃是四方的,但这个好像比较大,哈哈,从ntuc买的吗?哈哈。要依靠圣灵过圣洁的生活,过主所喜悦的生活,呵呵。听了两堂“青年营-靠圣灵行事”主题和两堂专题,今晚就听最后一堂。若你也要听的话,不妨到一下网站:

Fisherman Church of Christ基督渔人团契

我会把它加在我sidebar的其中一个link,这样大家就不用找这个blog entry了。哈哈。也是从那网站来的,是关于基督徒应否庆祝圣诞节。哈哈。好了,我要去洗澡,读书了。

First tutorial of the sem

今天有我这个sem第一个tutorial。还好啦,哈哈。回到家就继续的做我那3215的prototype,好不容易想明白了一些事情。非常感谢主,当我正在发愁如何向老师交代这个prototype时,主不断的安慰我,并赐给我的组有智慧来应付这个功课。我弟弟,我与ck昨天花了一个傍晚(2pm至5pm)一起不断的思想如何把我们的query subsystem分工合作。终于,感谢主,使我们能够把我们那system分成query preprocessor,query evaluator和query tree。虽然query tree没有画在architecture上面的,但是它是个非常重要的棋子。我负责query preprocessor,我弟弟拿query evaluator,还有ck拿query tree。我还非常高兴他这次很努力地想了个alternative方法去做他那query tree。哈哈。

哇,刚才我们又有个全体(六人)meeting在science canteen,讨论了那group-PKB的工作,以及试着让他们(三人)能够将他们的front-end subsystem和PKB分工合作。好不容易,经过了许多挣扎,我们终于站同一条线了,他们终于明白了。只不过我还不知他们的implementation会是怎样的。但是最关心的乃是最后的成绩嘛,哈哈。现在我有的忙了。要把今天meeting所说idea/concept记录下来email给其他人,让他们可以refer。哈哈。对了,我还有seating plan还没画的,哈哈。

好了,不说多多了,赶快去做事情了。哈哈。

PGP Aircon canteen food X$X

I just dun understand why no one EVALUATES pgp aircon canteen food? How come there's survey around the campus asking how's the faculty canteen, but not asking abt pgp's aircon canteen? OSA keep changing the stalls in the faculty canteens, but how come NOT doing something about PGP AIRCON CANTEEN?! The price are "flexibly HIGH" (the price is not fixed and it is expensive)... why? why? why? I have to remind myself to write that in the OSA survey from now on... the worst stall I is... (excluding the malay stall and the indian stall) the Chinese cuisine. Everytime... the price is different... now, with 1 meat and 2 vege, it was $2... later... $2.10... now is $2.30... think the next time I call from that stall (if I ever will), it should become $2.50 le. THE FOOD HAS NOT BEEN CHANGE... NO SINGLE IMPROVEMENT... I would rather go to eat the chinese cuisine at Varynice (a food court in clementi)... the price is as SIMILAR to the food outside liao. I thought the food in the campus should be be cheaper as in the rent in the canteen should be cheaper... but NO... if they push the price so high... at least make an improvement to their food, at least we think worth it mah... but... NO too... cabbage is tasteless and the RICE is dry and hard... as if it was yesterday's rice!

Another point is the veggie stall... though the auntie is kind... but when coming to the price... boom... 3 vege!!! $2.30! come on... one of them just a MOCK MEAT! Is still vege, rite?! So... dun know why... this one I don't dare to say much like the chinese cuisine because the vegetarian stall in Varynice is also very the expensive... so... wanna ask is... "why in the world they make vegetarian dish so EXPENSIVE???" unless the cook think it is RARE to have someone to cook vegetarian dishes!!! So.... that's PGP AIRCON CANTEEN FOOD... and... how I miss the OLD NON-AIRCON CANTEEN (I specify the OLD coz I not sure the non aircon canteen will be reopen or not... even if it reopen, I scare that the price will be as FLEXIBLY HIGH as the aircon canteen)

X$X -> means no good and expensive. Don't get me wrong.

First non-rainy day of the Week

今天可是要感谢神,终于有一天没有像平时的那么多雨了(刚才我在tiong bahru吃完晚餐后,下了点毛毛雨),哈哈。也感谢主今天是个平安的一天,今天的节目便是十一点与我NUSHO的25th exco(我的batch)在mcD吃午餐,过后就回到家作功课,冲个凉,刚才八点与敦义,立智和敦廉meet up去tiong bahru market吃粥。

说到正午在mcD,我们十一个人,所以我们把六张桌子合了起来,就聊天等其他人。首先有kahying,hwachin,xuehui,我弟弟和我,然后winson不久就到了。等多几下,荣华和diep也抵达了。因为有些人没吃早餐,肚子特别饿,所以他们就先开动去排队了。changkiat那时才到。大家买完后,坐下来,又吃又聊天,给我们嘴巴训练得够饱,哈哈,ferry就进来,参与我们一份。Winson好像有事情,补充了体力就忙他的去了。我们几个还在忙着finish我们所买的,也顺便等我们的好久不见的雅亮,哈哈。(他上个sem到美国exchange)哈哈。我吃完后,把在桌子上的垃圾都丢进垃圾桶,return tray,这也多亏了hwachin,哈哈,向我们显明她在mcD,penang作part-time所学到的,看来她“收获不浅”!哈哈。“不久后”我们的star来到了,每个人都好奇要听他的american accent,哈哈。这种东西哪能躲得了的,哈哈,他买了他的午餐,就边吃边跟我们述说他在美国所见所闻所体验到的。哈哈。我们其他人那时就让我们嘴巴休息(因为等我们star的时候,我们有说有笑的,话题似乎说完了。哈哈),启动我们的耳朵来“监视”我们的star在训练他的嘴巴,哈哈。最后,我们把镜头转移到changkiat,我们打算今天就帮他庆祝他生日,early生日。哈哈。Hc,xh和ky还送他一个“hamper”,没有啦,是“礼物”!哈哈。

下午到家就吃一粒pear,完成那我没完成的作业。不知是昨天或今天早上又在我人生上加添了两个作业。哈哈。希望明天可以把它们都做完,呵呵。看来我弟弟正在忙“想”那Soiree poster,我很想帮,但我不知如何帮上忙。k了,我要去睡觉了,明天得早醒去教会。

Week 1 almost done...

Week 1就要完了,必定会怀念的,因为到了Week 3就开始有tutorial或lab了。下个星期(Week 2)则是要开始作功课,在Week 3要呈现的。所以这个week是最闲着的(但一有东西做时,就是超忙了),哈哈。

这个星期,看到一些cluster mates的旧面孔,也有新脸孔(因为有不同的exchange student;旧的不去,新的不来,嘻嘻!)最糟糕的是那厕所捣蛋者也回来了,虽然我心里有怀疑一人,但是还是忍了下去。他每次不拉水的,甚至做大后。有时还把toilet paper在洗手间乱乱丢,浪费极了,不知纸是怎样来的家伙。看来那犯者不是那些exchange students了,cluster leader贴在墙上的忠告都防止不了那犯者,依然任他逃之夭夭。

我从我lecture回来后,在我书桌旁整齐了一下,把printer搬到桌子底下,使我有比较大的桌子空间。哈哈。

我正在读这本Hudson Taylor的autobiography。这位戴德生先生我也听过不少关于他的事,他是一位传道人,主藉圣灵感动他去把福音带到中国。那时候还是十九世纪中段,around 1850年。这本书描写他是如何成为信徒,后来藉着祷告的生活,成了门徒。圣灵感动他有一个意念到中国那里传主的福音。我才读完9 chapters,戴德生先生才到达中国的上海,学着那边的语言,面临那时候的地区混乱战争。有几处是非常感动的,譬如戴德生要离开他的祖国(英国)时,与他母亲的那段情节,非常的感人,使我联想到当神叫亚伯拉罕从他父家出来,到那他所不认识的迦南地去。他们两人都不知道他们所要去的地方是怎样的,但是他们就凭着他们对主的信心,去那主吩咐他们去的。要知道主是不会抛下他的儿女的,只要专一的信靠他,依赖他的权能,对他要满有信心,他自然会带领我们通过一切的难关。这也使我想起了诗篇23篇。

在他正在准备去中国时,他不断的训练自己,不再睡好吃好,依赖着主的供应过每一天的生活。他也从这些日子学习了祷告的功课,也建立了对主的信心。哈哈,感触挺多的。哈哈。愿主带领我不只读读就算了,要从这位戴德生先生学习那砌而不舍的精神及那信心依靠主,无论在欢喜或似乎绝望的情况。

有时我觉得剪了这样的头发也挺凉快的,哈哈。没有那厚厚的头发的感觉。哈哈。

Just started...

昨天在六点钟,我才有我这个sem的第一个lecture。那只是个introductory lecture,没什么大不了,整个1.5hr都在说admin,关于module和learning tip。哈哈。那课过后,我就有口琴练习。哇,好久没吹了,哈哈,快要生锈了。哈哈。

我今年打算背金句,但是我不懂自己能够持续几久。我相信依靠主,求主帮助我,我必能持续到底。哈哈。所以我就打算造着我教会所给的2007经文小纸背。这两个weeks是歌罗西书3:1和腓立比书1:23。

我看了这个月的月讯学习了很多,其中有一文章关于作主日学老师该有的态度。我在读着的时候,也正在检讨我自己,主日学老师是个不简单的工作,是个作牧羊的工作。在月讯最后几页有弟兄姐妹参加营会的分享。这个营会只可惜在我考试期间,很遗憾的,我不能参加。但是感谢主,当我读弟兄姐妹的分享时,看到他们从营会收获不浅,我便快快得到教会的网页寻找那被录下来的营会的信息。感谢主你赐给我们如此的服务,让那些不能参加的也能够听主您所带给我们的信息。我到现在听了三个主题,委身做主的门徒,委身做主的仆人,以及委身做主的朋友。我也勉励弟兄姐妹能够去听。

好了,今年立志一切信靠主,求主保守,求主使我不偏差。愿主也带领各位弟兄姐妹,remind我自己要多为其他人祷告,要胜过我那又懒惰又自私的老我。这一切必要靠主去行,单单我一人的力量是不能够的。

Start of Week 1

Last day of my holiday... after back from church, I just watch some novel online... check on Yahoo! Sports abt NBA matches... then... do some exercise then bath... haha...

Receive a book from my bible study grp teacher abt Hudson Taylor... a great missionary, going to China to preach about God's word... someone we have to learn from. Another person from bible is Caleb, son of Jephunuh. A brave person. Today morning service talks about Numbers 13:1,25-14:11, abt God asked Moses to send 12 spies to the Land of Canaan. Out of the 12 spies, 10 spies discouraging the Israel assembly not to go because the enemies are powerful. However, the other 2 spies, Caleb and Joshua, son of Nun, encourage the assembly to believe in God whole-heartedly, have faith in God, go get that land that God has promised the Israelites. All 12 spies are able to testify that the land is a land that flows with milk and honey. They also see the strong forts build around the city, also the giant and powerful enemies. However, Joshua and Caleb saw more than the other 10 spies. They saw God's promise, God's will and God's presence with the Israelites all along. This can be reflected upon our life when we meet an obstacle while we are walking our spiritual path. The bible contains a lot of God's promise for us to grab hold, but we have to read the bible to understand God's will and also His promise to us, so will you pay the price to read? Haha... many of us know that God's grace is wonderful, we want God to give us more grace, more talent... but when God says in order to get the grace, we hav to pay the price, we have to work to get it, many of us shun from this... many of us dun want to pay the price... just like the Israelites... they know that the land of Canaan is a land that flows with milk and honey, very nice... but... God says they have to fight the Canaanites in order to obtain it... they complaint that why God bring them out of Egypt... (they are slaves in Egypt)... they didnt see God's promise and God's miracle that has been working among them... they take all those God did in front of their very eyes for granted... same to the people now... Jesus has sacrificed his body for our sin and to save us from God's wrath, also break our bond with Satan, but men take it for granted, do not want to receive the salvation God has prepared for all men. It is sad... but God's work has not stop. Gospel is still spreading and the bible still remain unchanged for more than two thousand years.

May God bless His children and everyone in this world hear about this good news, this gospel, about this salvation God has prepare for us with the blood of Christ, His one and only Son!

Steamboat night in PGP

昨天当我放好laundry,我就开始清扫房间,总算干净多了。后来义告诉我那CS3215要用C#的。哎呀,我们必须要自己学用,所以就拔书出来读,还有从internet上找资料。我们还install了visual c# express edition,不知是否对的compiler。哈哈。现在能做得就是看看c#和Java的相同之处,这样我们可以relate。

到了五点多,我那时dryer也弄好了,所以下去拿了上来,把每件衣服放进衣橱,就和义打算去廉那里搬一些steamboat家伙以及utensils过来。但是我们到了bus stop,雨点渐渐得掉下,越来越大,越来越急。当巴士来了,义漏了他的ezlink card,所以只有我去廉那里拿东西。哇,超大的雨,躲在雨伞下的我,还是遭到风吹雨打,衣服和裤子全湿透了。在廉那里休息了一阵子,用纸袋装所要带的东西,就等雨转小。

在雨小了,廉和我便拿着东西搭巴士183往pgp去。我回到房间换了件衣服,就与我两个弟弟去那steamboat之地。我们吃得好饱,甚至被逼玩zhong ji密码来吃完大部分的东西。哈哈,看来买太多了。但是那汤最棒了,哈哈,非常好喝。哈哈。玩完后,大家又洗碗。我们就陪廉到bus stop等巴士。他明天九点又得去做义工。哈哈,hope he enjoy。

现在还没有有照片,下次才放上去吧。哈哈。糟糕,吃如此多,得运动多了。哈哈。

Back in Singapore

上次忘记post了:那天星期一和二是去年我吃榴莲吃最多粒了,哈哈。(把那算在去年,因为去年一整年我嘴巴一点都没沾到榴莲。哈哈。不错啦,蛮好吃的。哈哈。

昨天12点,爸爸带我们到美里,吃了午餐,去富丽华一趟,然后就去飞机场。在那里等了很久,因为去JB的飞机被delay了一个半小时,甚至比我们要迟的班机去kuching的比我们快上飞机离开。哈哈。到了我们在新加坡的住处,我们就unload我们的行李,搬回房间。我弟弟跟我们不住在一起,所以我们四人本来打算放好东西,就陪我弟弟搭巴士去他房间,然后四个人就到附近的小摊子享用晚餐。但是天不作美,下着一场大雨!哈哈,哇,所以后来只有廉和我去廉那里,因为雨太大了,我就在那里过夜。哈哈。今天早上回到房间,收拾一些东西就与几个朋友包括我弟弟(义)在内,去clementi办理事情。哈哈。

看看我房间,挺肮脏的,哈哈。心里有打算打扫抹地,但是身体却懒惰,哈哈,可谓力不从心。哈哈。

Wrong hairstyle

看来我又一次的拜访了一个错的剪发师,把我头发剪到不是我所要的。但是没关系,我也没什么不高兴,只是不喜欢罢了。头发太短,站了起来,好像变成spiky hair了。

今天是我在汶莱最后一天了,明天要坐飞机到新加坡了,为开学预备一些事情(第一个紧要的就是选科目了)。哈哈。回想这个假期就要过去了,时间过得好快。关于Java Swing GUI,我有看了一半书,也学了不少东西,但是关于J3EE,我就只读了一些在网上的资料,但是没有正式的试过,所以还是不明白,不了解,哈哈。

这个假期,唉,应该增加了不少kg,糟了。到新加坡要self-discipline,逼自己去运动。哈哈,要向那40kg的目标朝去。哈哈。我也看了不少哆啰A梦的漫画及卡通dvd,哈哈,挺好看的。前天我也uninstall microsoft office,install openOffice,和mozilla thunderbird。哈哈,不错啦。呵呵。

又是新的一年了,正是好快哟。哈哈,看看现在该做什么,哈哈。
