Going once, going twice…

Round one of the bidding exercise ended without much hiccup. It seems like once you get the hang of it and you have an idea on what modules you want to take, its simpler.

Anyway, these are the modules I’m taking this semester:

  • CS1102
    Data Structures and Algorithms
  • CS1105
    Computing and Society
  • CS2106
    Operating Systems
  • EG1108
    Electrical Engineering
  • MA1505
    Mathematics I

One semester down, many more to go X(


Tis the season to be jolly

Two weeks into the holidays and Christmas is coming up, lets see how I’ve been doing lately.

Met up with the old gang at Loof for some get together on the 9th. Seems like everyone is doing quite well. Tried to fix Kaisuan’s new phone but seems like somebody superglued the battery panel to the phone… Even enlisted Rain’s colleague to open but no one seems to be able to crack open it. Went to Geylang for supper when we can’t find any movie to catch. Daniel was kind enough to give me a ride home, since he had to drive Rain home and I live quite near her.

Most of holidays I’ve been stuck at home, since my mum got one of her friend to come over and paint the house. I’ve been relegated the duty of housewatching as her friend can only come over after his work and I have to be present to let him in. Still, I did manage to catch Casino Royale with Kenny. He got some free tickets from Vivocity, apparently somebody was giving them away by the bulk, but the tix were valid only after the 7th and only on Monday to Wednesday. Which practically leave Monday and Tuesday to watch the show since the run is ending. Anyway, quite a nice show without all those impossible technology gadget bullshit that the previous show has. And not to mention the Aston Martin DBS, my dream car *drool* (The DB9 is my dream car actually, the DBS’ older brother). Not much air time for the car though, it only appears mainly stationary and for a short while.

Got employed by a friend to help her do some electronic stuff for her model or project or something… Think I spent something like 9 hours on the soldering and stuff… Don’t feel like doing anymore electronic for the rest of my life… Sheesh…

Module bidding next week, the signalling of the start of a new semester. Already decided on what 4 modules to take, can’t make up the fifth one. Hopefully I can get what I want.

I wanna play a game

“Suffering, You Haven’t Seen Anything Yet”

Watched SAW 3 yesterday with Hairol and Ngiap. Quite a gory show, especially the first two murders, although its not as bloody as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.  I believe SAW 3 is the goriest of the trilogy, I don’t remember cringing that much when I watched the first two shows.  As usual, Jigsaw is clever and crafty in his setup, even in his deathbed. Quite a meaningful movie. (Kinda weird to associate meaningful with a horror flick, huh?)

After the movie, I met up with my army buddies and went to The Mind Cafe at Boat Quay to play board games. Quite a cosy place and the staff there were really friendly. Played a few games like Taboo, Citadel, You’re Pulling My Leg etc. Had a great time there, this proved that you don’t need booze to enjoy yourself.


After Action Review

Finally the exams are over and lets see how I’ve fared:

  • CS1104
    Should be ok, didn’t screw up much. But don’t think I’ll do very well either.
  • CS2301
    Hopefully I can bullshit my way pass the exams. Did quite well for my CA.
  • MA1301
    I need divine intervention for it… Divine intervention of epic proportion…
  • SSA2202
    Same with CS2301. Hopefully I can bullshit my way through
  • LSM1301
    Man… The MCQ was hard… Hopefully I can pass my finals…

So there we have it…
Uni stuff is so hard…

Anyway… Time to put everything behind and relax a bit for the holidays… I’ll worry about it after the 27th, when I get my results
