Damm, the same thing happen as I expected, early in the morning woken up by those noises. Crap, next time I will never buy a house on a second story unless I have no choice. Read the notice they pasted downstairs. This will go on till end of June. They are doing improvements works on the pillars. I don’t know why the fark they need to improve on the pillar, as if it will collapse. Waste the tax payers’ money by doing this type of rubbish job, much as well use the money and donate it to the Courage Fund. Brainless RC
Went out to eat lunch with my mom, ate the minced pork noodle at Bestway building, sudden craving for it. LOL. Came home printed out all my MMAD stuffs, at least 100+ papers have been used for this task. LOL. Went to bind them together later forming a think stack of notes to study. Spend the next 2 hours studying all the notes except tutorial. LOL
Woke up by the noise that is coming from downstairs. Don’t know what the fark the workers is drilling. All the way from 9.30am to 1.30pm couldn’t get a quiet sleep. It sucks staying on 2nd floor especially with all those noises that are coming from downstairs.
Spend the afternoon doing my webpage and playing a little bit of America’s Army before taking a very short nap in the late afternoon.
Lian came my house in the afternoon to study for MMPJ, left my house at about 3.45pm. On the bus then I realize that i didn’t remember to do alot of things. Bring last semester exams paper, take my SP exams letter and drink my essence of chicken. The only thing that I am luckily about is leaving the house in time because as as soon as we reach school, the rain started to fall.
MMPJ exams start at 6pm, but delayed all the way to around 6.20pm as this is our first exam of the semester and because of the SARS thing, lecturer got alot of stuff to say. Thought they will give us a digital oral thermometer, didn’t know is a mercury thermometer. SP so rich also cannot afford a digital thermometer. Furthermore we need to bring that thermometer for every exam we are taking, if not we need to buy it at $10. Crap.
Woke up at 1pm today again. As usual, did the same old stuff as what I did on Saturday. Study for MMPJ. Study till the evening, before taking a rest. Watch Speed on Channel 5 at 7.30pm, one of the old and repeated movie shown on Channel 5.
Ate my mom’s home-cooked western food for my dinner. Baked potatoes, corns, carrots, beans, pork chop, ham, sausages. Woo, so nice. LOL
Slept till 1pm today. Ate lunch before start studying for my MMPJ. 13 chapter lectures slide to read. It is quite alot. So much information to remember. I hate to memorize stuff. It is not practical at all. But luckily the exam paper will be based on case studies. Evertime study 1 chapter, the chapters before it all forgot. Sigh
Played abit of MechWarrior 4 : Mercenaries in the late afternoon to destress myself(as if I have been stress out). LOL
Had VB lecture in the morning. Lecturer went through last semester exams paper. The paper was quite easy but abit tricky.
Went to Marina Square later. Ate the minced pork noodle there for lunch. Actually everytime we went Marina Square I would want to eat the minced pork noodle there, but Lian don’t really like it, so end up not eating it. LOL. This time she say I sick so she give in to me. LOL
Went to school for 3 lessons today TBCM, MMPJ and VBAS. Got an A for my MMPJ assignment after checking it with the lecturer.
My VBAS interview start at 2pm right after lunch. Was hoping to go first then can leave earlier and hoping that my lecture lecturer will interview us instead of our tutorial lecture. But so bloody unluckily we are the second last group and interview by out tutorial lecturer. That lecturer interview us 1 by 1 instead of a pair, wasting so much time. Actually my schedule is 3.50pm and I thought I can leave by 4pm, but that lecturer drag till almost 5pm. So end up waiting 3 hours for my turn to be interviewed. CRAP
Half-Life 2, the rumors that have been going on for the past week and I have been following it closely. They are not rumors, it is true that Half-Life 2 will be out by the end of this year, rejoice guys. Here are some points taken from Planet Hal-Life & CS Nation:
» Half-Life 2 is scheduled for a September 30th release. » Yes, you’re still Gordon Freeman, and yes, the story assumes you went to work for the G-Man. » Half-Life 2 takes place in a European city called “City 17.” » Headcrabs will be back! Although some of the Xen aliens will be your friends? » Barney is back. And so is Half-Life’s original writer, Marc Laidlaw. » While the new engine has all sorts of fancy features, it’s still designed to work on lower-end machines. Apparently a 700mhz processor and a video card capable of running DX6 is enough, although a 2ghz with a GeForce4 is recommended. » The girl in the promo art is named Alyx, a daughter of a scientist who factors into the story somehow. She’s not playable. » Scripted Sequences will be more interactive. » Half-Life 3 is planned, so expect another cliffhanger ending. »The eyes of players are dynamic, and accurately track objects in the real world, jumping to various objects of interest as well when nothing is happening. » Eyes also feature true reflections. » While a number of “Barney” security officers will be around, one main sidekick is planned. » Full facial animation, based off of muscle-movement studies, gives natural expressions as well as automatic lip-synching. » Fully realistic physics engine for fluid movement, falling, and collisions. » All players will no longer walk “through” corpses, but rather step on and over them. » Advanced fully dynamic particle system. » Vastly improved AI system with intelligent pathfinding, threat analysis, and multiple prioritized objectives. » Expected to be published by Activision.
Woke up in the afternoon. Bought lunch back from my house downstairs coffeeshop. It has been months since I ate the Wan Ton Mee there. Miss it. By the way, my house area got 2 coffeshops, 1 is famous for its Lor Mee and the other is for its Wan Ton Mee and Western Food. =D
Started studying for my MMAS at 3pm till about 6pm. Of course with breaks in between. I got short concentration power of only about an hour or 2. Touched little bit or IGRA only. Wrote down all the important codes in my book as it is a open book test. Took a short nap after that.
