  • A little bit more about the masters class

    The MSC program that I am attending is called MSC in Reliable Embedded Systems. It is offered by university of leicester. It is a 2 year part time program covering 6 modules. Each module is done in 5 days, Saturday till Wednesday. That means I need to take leave on 3 working day. Every year, […]

  • 5 more to go

    Wife saved up this phrase for me for one week “one down, 5 more to go” she is referring to the module that I have to complete for my masters. Yes, I am taking masters. For those who knows me, you are probably saying.. geeze finally. I have been talking about it for about 5 […]

  • first time in 7 years

    I am going back to school. After 7 years away from school, I am going back to school. Part time masters class. Masters in science.

  • Queen Victoria Market – Melbourne

    Know a place by visiting the market. That is what I did. QV market is HUGE. They sell everything there and they are more known for selling souveniers there than your produce. They do have a relatively small wet market which sells seafood and meat. I could have mistaken the wet market for supermarket and […]

  • A different angle

    As an effort by my department to improve our so called soft skill, the boss bought each of us Strengths Finder 2.0. It cost something like RM75 per book, but here is the thing, the value of the book is not in the book. The value is in this passcode, sealed at the back of […]
