End of 1st week

Another week of no-tutorials left... have to make use of these days to work on our hyp, because when the tutorial comes in, we're be busy... We have to attend 3 Maths modules' tutorials (currently still balloting).

Lecture Theatre confusion
Yesterday, we (Tung Ngie and I) went for our QF3101 lecture at 4pm in LT21. As the time approached 4pm, we can see some students taking out their lecture notes... but surprisingly, it wasn't the same lecture notes as us. It had "Receptor Signal" written on it. We started to look around and found there are some familiar faces (that was our 2nd lecture of the module) we saw during the 1st lecture, but there are some unfamiliar faces as well. Haha... not long... a lecturer came in and it wasn't the lecturer for QF3101, but PP2106. Haha... everyone is confused... and it is either we go or they go. Our lecturer, Dr Tan, reached just in time before the PP2106 lecturer chased us out. Don't worry, no rough talk, just some quiet talk (all the noises came from the students)... after some phone calling in and out, our lecturer decided to compromise and let PP2106 to have one hour of lecture, and we would return at 4.45pm. (Looks like their lecture time is shorter as it has been delayed at the beginning, then 4.45pm chased out by us)

Anyway, this morning we went to check their timetable, their venue is LT33, instead of LT21. Maybe the lecturer has been using that LT for PP2106 and didn't realise there's a change in the venue. Most surprisingly is that the students are as blur as the lecturer? If not, how come the students also came to LT21? Haha... strange... anyway, our lecturer said that won't happen again. Haha...

How's my HYP now?
Well, I did quite a number of stuff for my HYP during the break and I really thank my Lord for that. My holiday has not been wasted. Haha... it looks as if I have finished my project, can start writing report (only that I don't know what to write)... but after I met with Dr Martin Henz (my co-supervisor), I got myself into some exploration to do. I need to look at Tcl/tk and GTK on how form can be represented in a higher-level manner, represented in JSON or other Javascript data structures. Haha... that's what I have been doing the whole morning... plus the last 2hrs. Then maybe there's a meeting with Michael Clark again coming Thursday (not yet confirmed). I don't know what Michael will bring out... but I am assured that I got something to demo for my HYP. Haha...

Has been reminding myself not to be lazy this semester, the last but busy semester, 22MC. Hehe... so have to work hard, try to absorb what the lecturers' said, especially MA3245 and QF3101. Requires a lot to think... oopz, I left out CS4271. Yesterday my brother and I checked out the Science Co-op during the 4.15pm-4.45pm time span (after the LT confusion). We found the textbook for ST1232 and CS4271... and they are really expensive... $66+ and $80+ respectively... wah... terrible... we haven't buy them of course... haha...

Anyway, back to the exploration... I feels like I need to write something that assembles GTK+ or Tcl/tk... but I am alone... those two toolkits are made by their respective TEAMS. Haha... I am not Zhuge Liang (Kong Ming)... haha... tomorrow Sunday... start of next week...

New haircut (chinese)

终于剪了头发,忍了那长头发好久哦,哈哈。因为新年来到,所以到处百货公司的商品都起价了,到处可以听到新年歌(可能他们把新年歌当作服务,让我们边买边听,服务费算在这些商品了,所以起价了。)连我们所去的理发店也起价了,那老板说只有这两个星期是十块钱,过后会改回八块钱。哈哈。好会做生意,没关系啦,只要把我那长头发修了就好。

前几天都不能file for graduation,不能毕业!哈哈,糟糕了,全都怪我一时declare了一个minor。过了几天的查考波折,还进了我们SOC的办公室,终于今晚可以file for graduation了,可以毕业了。哈哈。这个semester有一个HYP以及四modules:CS4271,MA3245,QF3101和ST1232。没办法了,一切惟有交托我主。

好快的明天就是星期五了,快要一周过去了。星期二那天晚上,我们还约了敦廉一起再varynice吃鱼头炉(红斑鱼肉,因为我们没一个喜爱吃鱼头),在加两碟菜,总共五十元。还不错,我吃得好饱哦,把我自己说要吃少的警戒话全都抛至脑后了。

好了,没什么事了。只是不断为我们(敦义和我)的HYP祷告,非常的担忧,因为我们自己不是很清楚我们的HYP在做什么的,意义是什么等等问题。只是老师说做,我们就去做。唉,做得不知意义。哈哈。

再见,晚安了。

Missed Flight 22 hrs

This is the first time I missed a flight... 22 hrs ago some more, haha... it was the flight I took from Miri to JB. I thought it is Jan 12 4pm, but... it really was Jan 11 4pm. Haha... so what to do? Bought a new air ticket, for Jan 13 4pm.

When my family and I reached Miri airport around 2.30pm on Jan 12, the Airasia counters were super quiet, EMPTY! Very different from all those time I took Airasia flights. My dad and bro went to look at the departure notice while I continue guarding our luggage near the counter. One of the Airasia crew looks "packed up and ready to go home", came out. Before we approached him, another lady asked him how come the counter is not open when her flight to KK is 2.45pm? The crew told her that they closed the counter 45 minutes before the boarding time, so the lady was late by 45 min. The lady looks stunned, then ask some more other questions, e.g. what should she do now? The crew told her she can buy new tickets to KK, because the next flight is Jan 13 (the next day) 8.30am plane, at the Airasia ticket counter. Then the lady went back to take her luggage. My bro, then, approached him and ask him whether there is a plane to JB, he said that there's no more flight today. The flight to JB only available on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Then we checked the receipt again and it clearly written there... "11/1/2008"... stunned, haha... oh well... then we hurried buy a new tickets for three of us, (me, my bro and liche) for tmr. Well... looks like we missed the plane by 22 hrs... haha... worse than the lady... haha...

Anyway, been enjoying myself very much at home that I have gained around 5 kg. Sad, sad... haha... but I think it is better than previous time, 8kg. Haha... Time to get fit again, yeah... haha...

Here's some photo how we disturbed our sister when she didn't want to get out of bed...


Covering her up with her blanket and her dolls...

Earthquake! Run for your life (you can see the dolls are falling)...

There she is... break out of the blanket... but...

Still don't wanna get out of bed... MISSION FAILED!

Haha... that's all for now... =P

Last week in KB

It has been a great 1-month holiday at home. Done a great deal of things for my honours year project, but hopefully it is in the right direction. Haha... now thinking how to improve my form object class. Poor TungNgie, still thinking hard on how to implement his project. Too bad I can't help him. All I can do is to pray for him, only our Lord can help him.

TungLieng came back from Dec 22 till Dec 30, but we didn't manage to get a family photo taken, haha... However, he was ill when he got back the 2nd day, food poisoned, that leads to fever... TungNgie got stomach pain, then fever too after two days later... then I "felt" feverish too on Dec 26, but managed to get well after a "full-body" cover up sleep. Haha... anyway, thank God that He healed all three of us before TungLieng returned to Singapore on Dec 30. Haha...

Nothing much except being joyful in the Lord's house. Have to remind myself to read and memorise God's word, pray for the churches and every brothers and sisters. Also, to all my friends whom haven't believe in Jesus Christ.

That's all for now.
