Power of Confession

The second half of this semester goes really fast. It is indeed the exam week now.

In the past week, I experienced the most intensive reading week in my four-year's university life in NUS.Actually, the last three weeks are the most intensive weeks in my whole life. I guess I will never forget these sleepless days, staying overnight with the passionate and super intelligent team mates.

Some highlights:
1. Wednesday's Project Demo.
Our app turns out to be very popular. Though we didn't know that we were supposed to provide a project id for voters to vote until the project showcase was almost finished, it is still encouraging to find out that we received very good feedback from the few only voters.

All positive!
I have problem to sleep over time for meetings or lectures. This app really helps to address the problem by integrate some games in suitable difficulties and nice group event message!! 
Interesting app
Interesting idea
"Very easy to use and a lot of interesting functions.
You can think about increasing the number of games."
very nice idea, cute yet functional and sleek interface. Very smooth animations which make the app look very polished. Hope their app can make it to the app store!
very nice interface, good idea and cute implementation. Very nice!
nice one
"Very interesting and creative!
It is extremely useful for group meeting, in my opinion."

Our team is planning to polish the code after the exam and post it to the app store. We can make it!

2. I bought an ebook from Douban http://read.douban.com/reader/ebook/565846/  titling
"不说,就真来不及了-纽约客的临终遗言"which means "It will be too late if you don't say it now-- New Yorkers' last words." 

The author said that he spent 350 dollars posting an advertisement on the New York Times newspaper collecting anonymous last words from the New Yorkers as a way to study confession psychology of human beings. He selected 28 stories and made them into the book. I was shocked by the deep meaning of the first two stories and bought the whole book after the free trial. Though I later knew from a review saying that the stories might not be true and the author might be fake, I read though the whole book on Sunday morning and found the lessons of the confessions really worth learning.  It is profound, which reminds me of religion and the seven deadly sins in the bible. People die for some reasons. Humans are too weak to be lured by sins. Without a strong and righteous moral law, it is very hard(or impossible) to maintain a innocent life. Be alerted!


3. On Friday evening, my teammates and I went to have dinner and then sing Karaoke to release the stress after the hard days. It was great.


I noticed that my blogger audiences are mostly from Russia after Google Reader is said to be shutting down. Maybe I shall write my own website and post the blogs there.

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
