Something is Wrong

I've got to reflect on the things happened yesterday. I'm pretty worried about the FB app when Prof mentioned in the class that our team has got no designers or web programmers. So are Yingbo and the other two members. One senior in the class suggested that people with the foreseen picture in mind and most passionate becomes the leader. Yingbo came up with the idea and she knew most of the app we are going to build, she undoubtedly became the leader. Since we both lives in RVR, I was assigned the job of developing the pages together with her.After discussing for a short while, we immediately developed a page in the first evening.

I'm pretty free yesterday except one lecture in the afternoon and one make-up lecture in the evening. I should have developed 2-3 pages in the morning, but I didn't.  I was wasting some time on project team grouping in another hypermarket project. Though I spent half an hour studying the syntax of PHP from W3, the fact is that I did not make a single page. Yingbo and I agreed to meet each other in RVR@ 8pm. However, the hypermarket project team had a meeting after the lecture, I didn't come back until 9pm. The FB seminar group also decided to make the 3 app choices@10pm but things turned out that we went nowhere discussing online.  I just wasted one hour chatting online with the seminar members while Yingbo was trying very hard on the app page. That's so bad about me. Really need to apologize to Yingbo. This should be the first-priority thing, but I just keep on doing other stuffs! I'm free on Wednesday, hopefully I will really make a change today.

UI seems to be a core selling point for apps in evolving platforms like Facebook. Xiangyun showed us a flash page he developed before and that looked really cool. Pity thing is that we cannot set another page layer on top of the flash page. We have to bid on him for the UI design. The DB schema has already been built last weekend and Mingzhe is working on it.

  1. I'm pretty worried about the FB app when Prof mentioned in the class that our team has got no designers or web programmers.

    It's actually acceptable to get someone outside your group to draw things for you. :-)

  2. Thank you for your suggestion, Prof. Leong. We'll try to make it on our own first, at least the first version...I think our UI designer is pretty good. He has already made an animation page using JavaScript.DB has been settled. The rest are in good progress.

    May I know is it allowed to use open-source codes to implement some functionalities like Autocomplete?

Time to Write sth about the NOC Israel

After more than a month's waiting, I received an email today from the Financial Aid office saying that I am not permitted to go for the NOC Israel programme. 

Dear ShaohuanI refer to your appeal to participate in NUS Overseas College (NOC) Israel.As spoken on 6 November 2012, we understand that you are very eager to attend the NOC and we had submitted your appeal, together with the appeal from NOC to the sponsor.  However, we regret to inform you that your appeal to participate in NOC Israel is not successful.   The sponsor has advised that you look for an internship locally instead, if needed.We wish you all the best. 

Actually, I was informed by the NOC coordinator that she has been informed by her colleagues that the sponsor officially rejected my appeal(together with Prof.Ben's and NOC's appeals) on 21st Nov. She tried to confirm with her colleagues whether the decision is final or not, hoping to help me for the last try. However, I guess the result won't be positive…

Learning Public Speaking

In the past few weeks, I've been exploring the methodologies of public speaking that work for me. It takes a lot of trials and errors until I finally see some progresses. It would be good to share my thoughts and experiences so that people see my posts can have a more confident and effective start for public speaking.

Firstly of all, you need to overcome the fears to public speaking.  The common excuse I take is that I'm an introvert person. You have to be an extrovert person to master public speaking. However, that's not true. Public speaking is a skill, it can be trained and mastered. It may take some natural talents to be a super-influential speaker. But for a normal person to hit a point to deliver your messages clearly and powerfully, it's doable.

One of the inspiring talks I heard from an introvert speaker is Susan Cain's "The Power of Introverts". Susan says that introverts sometimes can deliver deeper thoughts than the extroverts.

2018 New Year Resolution

This year, let me try to draft the new year resolution based on the Willpower Instinct:



Step 1: List down the best things of the past year.
1. I proposed to my fiancee when she and her mum visited Singapore in July. We were then registered as officially married on her birthday on 28th Nov in Beijing.
It was really the most important event of my life so far. After years' of long distance relationship, we finally made it. Though it will still take her another half year before coming to Singapore, we were both thankful that we really made it.
2. I bought my own apartment. It was a tough process to look for properties. I was so happy when I received the keys. Before that, I shared with my bedroom with my room mates for 3+ years.
3. Fooyo's sales was quite satisfying. We has two big customers, one in the Tourism Industry and another in the Logistics Industry. The products we produced were pretty pioneering and beneficial to the industry. 
4. Fooyo successfully settled our office in …
