Polishing

I stayed in my friend Zhixing's place after polishing the last CS3217 project together with Jingping last night. We plan to publish the small app on App Store to gain some experiences as individual mobile game developers. Hopefully we'll launch a neat version for girls around the Chinese New Year.

The past week is pretty joyful, mostly on debugging and feature/UI polishing. I helped solve a crucial bug on Android TextView text selection. I also polished the website reading page JavaScripts to improve the user experience. The basic web service api also started to get developed. Last Saturday, I attended a design thinking workshop by the OrangeHive. Yangyu and I made a creative logo in the workshop and  that was an interesting experience. 

The iOS app for readpeer is getting great. Most iOS development is done by the junior, Zijian while I sometimes help solve some bugs when he encounters problems. Zijian is getting self-motivated and happy playing with iOS development. That is really great! We are expected to come up with a prototype in a month and then seek professional designers for UI polishing. It is lucky that the idea didn't die as a MVP but really going to become a product for people to use. The web client is launching next week as an experiment for market testing and bug reporting. Busy days are coming.

Another good habbit I started to form is to eat less pork and do more physical exercises every day. It is surprising to get the feedback from my peers that I looked thinner only after 1 week's time.

Too many good things happen this week and no bad news worths recording for now. Stay alert.

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 …
