Intensive and Rewarding Weeks

These past two weeks, I've been experiencing the most intensive days ever. Almost every night, I stayed with my teammates in PL1,mostly doing project development(sometimes telling jokes). It becomes a biological clock to go for supper together in the midnight(order from MCdonalds' or go to a nearby Taiwan restaurant),continue coding until early in the morning,then sleep until the afternoon and continue the circle again. It is a super intensive, but certainly awarding experience. That would be one of the most valuable memories in my life, to work with these intelligent and passionate teammates. Sometimes, I'm not so efficient, bothered with FYP deadlines and other assignments.However,they help share the pain. I also share my passion and engagement.That is a great time.

Some highlights:
 1. Cat vs Dog puzzle. https://www.spotify.com/sg-en/jobs/tech/catvsdog/
     It is a tough one. Undirected weighted bipartite graph, to calculate the maximum flow.Still have problem solving it.
 2. iOS.

  •  push notification vs pull from server
  •  singleton(One independent Server class to handle all events associated with communicating with the server).
  •  grand central dispatch,block,multi-threads 
  • three ways to push new UIViewcontrollers: 1. presentViewController Modally.2. segue+navigation controller 3. loadwithNIB and using self addsubview to add new view. The third option is the most customizable one in terms of animation customization.
3. FYP report submitted.
     I finished the report in a very short timeframe(about three days). That was rough but actually deliverable. 

4. My Birthday
    Saturday morning, my mum smsed me saying that day was my birthday. I didn't know that because it is in lunar calendar. She is only one person on this planet knows the date.Be grateful.

5. Received the interview chance for douban as a summer internship. Will need to work harder to make it happen.

Need to sleep now, will be having a FYP presentation this afternoon. Good night/morning!

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

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

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
