A Short Memo

(Wrote on Sunday)I bought the air tickets for my parents to visit SG during the Chinese new year. It is the greatest thing for this week. My mum is very difficult to persuade when money gets involved. Thankfully, I saved enough money to buy them the whole trip without her feeling any pain:-) My father won't leave his work for travel unless that's a big holiday like the Chinese New Year. For both of them, it is really a good time to visit. One of my high school teacher and her college friend are also going to come. It is pretty challenging for me to manage these two teams in parallel. A good approach is probably assign enough freedom to them and let them spend more time playing by themselves.

Personally, I'm fairly anxious about the last semester. Quite a number of things to do and some of them are pretty challenging. I don't know how hard CS3217 is going to be for me. The fundamental thing is that I shall prepare enough time for it. The bad thing is that I still got some other pretty time consuming stuffs to do. e.g., the mobile checkin system for a hospitality startup company(hopefully will finish within 1 month), FYP(thankfully some other people recently joined the project and will help take some job),parents' visit(<=10days,shouldn't affect me too much),job interviews. The good thing is that I will have no choice but to spend a lot of time on it and I know I am going to be technically stronger after surviving the course.

Giant buildings are constructed from small bricks. It really depends on how much time and effort I will be spending on each task. As from this week's performance, I would say it's fairly unproductive. After deactivated Renren, my daily time spent on social networks has decreased dramatically. However, after moving to the new hostel, I reactivated it agin and the time I spent on social networks has increased. Maybe I shall build an app some other time to help users better manage the time in social networks(e.g., help store and organize the news feeds so that users can check every few days/weeks without missing any important feeds).

One friend invited me to cycle around SG, I'm very interested.

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 Shaohuan I 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 b

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 succ

IPAD/FB Seminar- Thoughts on Pulse News

Monday's presentation was full of interesting sparks. Of all the eleven teams, only one chose to present FB app, which is Sims Social. The others all chose to present ipad apps. That's not so surprising as Ipad(Tablets) is the most recent platform and there are a lot of blank spaces for us to fill in. The ten ipad apps shared in the seminar covers various fields like e-payment, news-media, education. What surprised me most is that many of us find education a very promising area for mobile app development...As ipads are being utilized as an educational tools in various educational levels, education is really going to be a great pie. Wait, I need to finish comments for my assigned app first. Pulse News, a news media app with good social features. News media are getting more social and mobile and probably "cloudy" in the recently years. Organizing news media contents can be a promising area since there are always interesting things happening around and people just have
