Nope, this blog is still opened

Well I have been missing in action for months but that doesn't mean the blog is closed down or whatever the reasons. This final semester is very important to me. Over the past few months, I have been actively searching for a job, finalizing my final year project and handling the usual work load in school.

As of now, I have just ended my exams. This exams haven't been on form. Missing out on 1 or 2 topics which appeared in this year exams. Probably not the ideal way to end my final semester of studies. However it was a relieve that the course has finally brought to an end. I have studied like I have not study in my lifetime. Pushing my own limits with each semester for the pursue of my own interest. To many, that the end of their education journey but it was a discovery of a specific area in IT which I discovered over the years. This area of interest will eventually be part of my requirements in finding the ideal job.

Uni life has offered me some of the best moments as well as bad moments. Best times includes internship, the company of cliques and the friendly lab technicians. Bad moments I should say should be my hostel life, and and the strong competition in fighting for a share in the score market. Studying exams was quite of a mental training as I realized that it was training your mind to take in knowledge more than its usual capacity. Overall uni have prepare mentally for the working world and I feel I have gain much in understand certain aspect in IT. No regrets in pursing this course but probably it has stretched me to the limits.

To end the year of 2010 with my final semester is what I have wanted as I will start a new year joining the workforce. Cya.

Prawning Tips

The following are the tips for prawning I got from a expert.
  1. Rod: Dipped the rod into the pond to measure the depth of the pond. Use your hand to mark the depth and grab the float. The hook must be one inch off the ground, if not pull it up to the correct height.
  2. Buy a 50 cent hook from Hai Bin Prawning, Bishan to have a higher chance of catching prawns.
  3. Large prawns movement tend to be minimum cause they are larger in size and the float tend to remain above. Tell-tale sign includes auto movement of float from left to right, sudden bouncing of float. Pull slightly to the direction against the prawn to see if there is any tension. Let the float go down if possible, that will signify that it is struggling to free itself from the hook.
  4. Small prawns will tend to pull the float down as they are smaller in size and shorter in height.
  5. Straighten the line. Have patient and wait for the prawn to pull the float down. Then applied a jerk like force to it.
  6. If it is a big prawn, try not to go against the force of the prawn, you will end up with no prawn and ur line hooking the rooftop. Force = Force --> Nothing. Let the prawn go down with your line first then as it struggle, u will feel a bouncing effect on your line. That is the time you should try and pull it closer to you then use your hand to grab it out.
  7. How to release the prawn from the hook? If it got long legs with pincher, out it on the floor and step on the pincher. Break it off and release the hook.
  8. Prawns are attracted to baits that are bloody, like chicken liver, earth worms etc. They are blind but can smell the bait.
  9. Finally, you will need luck and patience.
End of Prawn chapter. Have fun.

I'm Drained

I'm so drained out. That the verdict. This holiday is too long for my liking to do FYP.
