Vote for my electives today at 4.30pm, they are IGRA[Interactive Computer Graphics], VBAS[Visual Basic Programming] and PCT[PC Technology], sent in my electives at 04:31:13pm. There are no guarantee that you will get what electives you choose, it is based on 3 criterias(in order), 1)Academic performance, 2)Aptitude and 3)First come first serve. Hope that I can get into the electives I wanted. Hehe
After the electives went to Suntec with the my girlfriend for dinner at the foodcourt then later went to Esplanade for a walk as usual. Saw 2 of my past semesters teacher at Suntec, so coincidence. Hehe
During IWED practical, continue on our assignment 2, finally, the INSERT statement bug is solved thanks to the lecturer’s help. I didn’t know “date” is a reserved word in asp, and that is the bug. LOL
During CANI lecture, our lecturer taught us how to use 3DS Max particles system, the effect that can be produced from that system is fantastic but requires a lot of time to tweak the settings so that it will be at its best.
What an “exciting” Monday, last minute announcements saying that for our next semester elective module (IGRA) will not be teaching C, but JAVA. Here is the quote, “The implementation language for IGRA is JAVA, not C++ as you have been briefed earlier”. This sucks, how can JAVA take over C in games development. JAVA is only good for creating mini games like Yahoo Pool and WAP Games, maybe SP thinks that there are a shortage of JAVA programmers nowadays. Sad, very sad.
I am still in a dilemma whether to choose JAVA which I hate, but can manage, or Design which I cannot manage but do not hate it. Sigh. Life sucks when you have to make difficult decision.

Nothing much to update for today. Did DEUI evaluation for Ai Lian, Hui Juan, and Alvin, and my own DEUI assignment is evaluated by Jacky, Wei Quan, and Hui Juan. DEUI is a crap module.
Adjusted the time of this post abit so that it can be kept within the day. Went to school in the morning to do entreneurship presentation slides, which is due on Tuesday. Later on went with my girlfriend to Marina to walk walk. On my way there, I saw my classmate, Lynn, being interview by MTV Screen on TV Mobile. Queue for about 30 minutes just to eat the famous minced pork noodle at Marina for lunch.
Watch Bourne Identity at GV Marina, not a bad show lasted for about 120 minutes. Later on went to Esplanade to “appreciate the moon (direct translation from Chinese)”. Left there at about 8pm for dinner at Long John Silvers at Marina.
