I still have got no idea what am I studying for my history paper.
But I am enjoying reading the US history after the Great Depression. It's more of leisure reading and hope I will remember the details.

As I kneel, head bowed, puking,
as I choke and snort my sputum
croaking, coughing, retching, groaning, on the bathroom floor,
I think, though brain is dizzy,
things I've never thought before
Things I've missed, though often
spewing, or somehow managed to ignore
While I lie bedraggled,
on the stinking cold hard floor.

Now with head a-throbbing,
o'er the great white bowl I'm bobbing,
Bobbing, throbbing, weaving, chucking,
surely there can be no more?
No more vomit I lay praying,
Jesus! save me now, and seal my maw
And send a team of maidens
to mop this stinking cold hard floor
And if you do, I promise,
on my honour, Nevermore!

But lo! my gut's ill-fated,
and my heaves are unabated,
And now my thoughts turn back
to whence they were before,
As I'm squirming, smacking, flopping,
like a spastic being ignored.
And no maidens do I hear,
not one wet-wipe does appear,
Nought but dread convulsions
on the stinking cold hard floor.

Tis curious, I wonder,
as I …
Stop dreaming!!!
Get back to study now!

My expectation for my other 2 papers is just a "Satisfactory" grade.
Anyway I have opted for Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grade. Yeah!!!
only 2 questions wrong for CS3266 exam..
hope my structured question will turn out okay as well.
CA marks at the moment stands at 60.75/61.
I am seeing A+ or A grade but of course hope for a A+.
This will be my second A+.
I am so disappointed with myself. I got a question confirmed wrong for today's paper. So sad...

So sad.. regine does not seem to have done well for her stats paper today. Hope she can at least get a B+.
It's going to be a stressful period for my dear. She just had a paper few hours ago at 5pm. She will be having another paper on tomorrow 5pm, and another one the day after tomorrow 9am.

I am no better off than her. I will be having a paper tomorrow at 1pm and another one the day after tomorrow at 5pm.

Her last paper and mine are on 30th Nov and 2nd Dec respectively. And so this means there is ample time for our last paper. I promised myself to have a good long sleep on 24th Nov night after my computer security paper.

God bless our health.

Primary school students had had their exams.
Secondary school students had had their exams.
JC school students had had their exams.
Polytechnic students had had their exams.
NTU students had had their exams.
Many SMU students had had their exams.
But NUS students had just started their exams.
Last paper is on 2nd Dec 2004.

I shall keep things simple and short because time is precious especially during examination period.

had unix exam this morning..found it manageable..hope can get at least min B+..went down to tiong bahru plaza after exam..found myself a seat in KFC..wait for my gf to arrive for our KFC lunch..set myself up for tomorrow's economics paper..brought out my water bottle and placed it on the table..reprimanded by a KFC auntie..told it was not right to drink water..told her it was plain water only..she walked away..i ignored her of course..i thought it was arrived an hour later..she brought out her 500ml water bottle with plain water..told her i was scolded for drinking plain water..knew she will be instinct was correct..we ignored her..bought some "chickens" was particularly excited..wahaha..
Left with lecture10, lecture11, lecture12 and lecture6.
4 more lectures to meet my today's target but then time now is already 0145hr!
My Unix Practical Exam was actually scheduled from 2pm to 4pm but then something happened and delayed the progress. Almost no one was able to log onto the NUS domain and mostly this could be due to some network connectivitiy problem in the lab. This is my 2nd PE for this module and in fact this is my 2nd PE in NUS. My first PE went quite well and I scored 95% for that. And as this 2nd PE, it was promised to be more on UNIX programming but then the 2nd question was based more on C. Quite disappointed since I concentrated so much on UNIX programming few days ago. The delay was a blessing in disguise since it helped buy some time and this meant more reading time for us.

At around 2:15pm, we were told to pack our bags and moved to another lab in the opposite building. "Everyone, we shall walk to the lab together", said Mr Edward, our TA. This reminds me of primary school times. There we go, carried our bags and stuff, walking to the opposite building. The procession was led by M…
My dear is still feeling unwell. I am going to pray for her and hope she will get well asap. 5 to 10 minutes is to be reserved for the pray before I go for a shower later.

I pray...
Quite happy today because I scored 45 out of 40 today for my CS33266 E-commerce website demonstration. The extra 5 max marks is due to my bonus features :) I do have 2 to 3 more bonus features yet to demonstrate and the grader actually stopped me since I have scored maximum. So happy today.

And as for my CS3235 Security first formal paper, my group scored only 11 out of 17. I think that is quite bad.
So happy today :)
My gf helped celebrated my birthday for me.. hehe..
She was playful enough to tell me she has not prepared anything for me (even a simple dinner) but then today, she got a watch for me :)
Reached school 7am+ just to have the watch kept in the locker, keeping it away from me for the time being... Reli playful but then eh.. really poor thing to wake up so early.
Went home after dinner and then was told an "anthrax" (a letter) was hidden somewhere with me. What I found was a card with some handicraft by her... It must have took her days to prepare and make all those.

Appreciate everything.
I major in computer viruses and worms study. From history, timeline, methods of propagation, variants, future trends, etc., I know them all.
I ordered "gong bao ji jin rice" and my gf ordered "tou foo claypot rice" today for lunch and both let us down :( The gravy for the "tou foo claypot" is 99% all oil! Really cannot imagine it. I then went to ask for an exchange and of course my request was granted. The "gong bao ji jin rice" also let us down. There's so much oil at the base of the rice and one can almost misrecognised that as gravy.

That's the most unhealthy food I ever seen.
