I have peak too?

Well, it seems that like accountants, I have peak period too. The irony of it that I’m working on peaks as well.

I think I need to brush up on my mandarin. Communication with a biologist isn’t really working out…especially when it’s nearing the end of the day.

Something good is coming our way after my peak period! :)

Not quite right

That’s how I’ve been feeling for this couple of weeks. It started with the runny nose and coughs, then diarrhea and stomachaches. It could be the dust and the in-my-face air-con in the new office; I think the body will eventually adapt or we move out in 2 weeks, whichever comes first. Or it could all because we just wrapped up another build.

A very tired moose.

Somehow I’m already looking forward to the weekend.

I’m not one to usually complain but I don’t understand the mentality or some people.

When you’re done with your work while others are still working, if you do not wish to offer your help, the least you can do is be quiet and do your own stuff. It’s inconsiderate to say the least to start playing loud music or chat / giggle among yourselves.

I’m not the most helpful person or someone who goes around offering help. Actually I’m not even that great in instructing people on how to do things. However, at least when I’m not doing work, I try to do my own stuff and not be a nuisance.

So has anyone else encountered such inconsiderate people? People who disturbs the peace of a work place or study place where others are trying to be productive. Share your rants!

Down to the last 3 weeks

It’s the time of the sem when everyone’s busy meeting project and assignment deadlines. I felt that this sem’s modules has been one which require consistancy since my day to day work and submissions contribute a fair share to my final grades. Nonetheless, glad to say that I felt I’ve managed them to the best of my ability and most importantly, I enjoyed the doing the things that were outside of theory lessons.

I attended a bioinformatics conference a few days back. My prof asked us if we would like to attend and majority of the class voted for it. (It was a very small class) It was a rare chance and definitely very interesting to attend a gathering of people of the same interests. It also helped me to merge an understanding of why I have to take certain modules.

Hope I don’t burnt out before the exams. Good luck everyone!

Take a breath of fresh air

Just when everything seems piling up sky high and I’m getting ever so lost at probability class, the mid sem break is here to save the day! I’m thankful to have reached this pit stop in one piece.

Many of you would’ve probably heard about the crane accident in NUS. I was walking towards the computing building that day from business and just happened to pass by the entrance to the business building when I heard a very loud crash followed by shreds of glasses landing on the road. Seconds later, frantic screaming people were heard and they were running away from something. I was taken aback as I’ve only watched such events over the news. Gunshots, bomb blast and screaming people; they belong to the news. I moved closer to get a view of what happened and only saw a tree toppled on top of a bus stop. The full story of what happened only came to me that night over the news. It made me fearful and revolted with sadness at the same time. The man who steered the crane so that it doesn’t hit the business building and the bangladeshi who died in the accident. What would happen to his family while many others and me escaped without a scratch? It’s scary how a matter of few seconds meant life or death, carelessness or heroic, disaster or destruction.

On a happier note, spent time with Subby today chatting about things we normally do not have the time nor energy to discuss. I have a networks assignment this semester which asks us to do a email server (like gmail, hotmail). Cool huh? Of course, ours is very much primitive. Just sending of plain text but I’m very much amazed that my programme can extract stuff from my webpage. :)

Ok, still very lazy to upload photos whatsoever. Ciao!
