Disclaimer: due to too many people asking me whether the following information is true or not, I wish to say that I dunno the true validity of the following information except that I can trust my aunt. My aunt who is a teacher told me that the dates of the release of SPM results is 12th of March 2008 and 15th March for STPM.
Disclaimer over.

Now for the old Franciscans, is a website to sign up on to. As for all my form 5 2005 classmates, remember to come to the 128th Anniversary Dinner on the 5th of April 2008 in SFI!

Now back to me. 2 days ago, I had joined the Buddhist Fellowship Dharma Sharing Class. It's a very nice class and it I had made some friends there. They thought Buddhism in Chinese and that's a good change to the previous way I learned Buddhism: in English. Tonight they had a Common Class where they invited a monk to give a talk.

About my room, I cleaned it up yesterday(finally) after my feet felt that they didn't cleaned it up as good as I wanted. Gonna vacuum it by next week. Now I am getting used to all those cold showers and walking to the common bathroom with nothing but a towel covering my underwear. But loneliness is still a thing to get used to. Especially at night. Don't get the wrong idea here mind you, I am a virgin! Ha ha just kidding.

After the Camp

I am the only one left after the 4 day camp at pangsapuri UKM. Boon teik didn't wanted to stay back at UKM with me for 5 months. So I shifted my things, that's a lot of things too mind you, to kolej Aminudin Bakti. The room was dirty, small and no hot shower! However the first class I had this Friday was amazingly nice, haha. Even with Form 6 Maths, I can solve Schrödinger equation. But interpreting it and applying it is another matter.

Now I felt the loneliness of walking alone to class, Eating alone, and doing almost everything alone. All my life, I had been wanting to be alone. Now that I had gotten that, I realized that I am just like everyone else: I had social needs. Ya, laugh on my classmates. I will make University friends! Just you see.

Now on to more serious matters concerning the IPhO. For the 49 students who went there and for those who are interested in this competition, this Year, The Malaysian Institute of Physics had decided to train the former 6 former in UKM for 5 months straight. Well as you might had guessed, I am the only one interested in this. And this time, they had decided to choose the top 8 first and not to choose the top 5 so fast. this will certainly ensure tough competition between the top 8 to be in the top 5 because the weakest 3 will have the most to lose as they will be studying physics and will have to catch up with their contemporaries. Let me with my personal experience advice you, it is more than enough time for you to catch up and revise your homeworks even if you start at the end of July. So despair not and strive on to finish your form 6 syllabus before the next camp. May the force of physics be with you.

Just making a post

Happy Chinese New Year to everyone. This year is reasonably nice. I had "helped" my grandparents to make nian gao. Meaning minimal help as I was consumed by laziness and odd sleeping time. This year, I had at least contacted more friends and go visiting with them, which reminds me that I should be doing harder. Now I had finally put in more people inside my Hp contact list.

Ummm.... oh ya my local University Application was sent with 5 of the 8 choices to be pure physics, each in USM, UKM, UM, UTM, UPM. Half of the choices will land me in USM.
Soon I will be going to UKM for Physics Olympiad training for 4 months, starting from 18th this month. In the mean time I will be attending a Princeton University Application Interview in a yet to be confirm date on the second half of February.

I will be eating dinner later with Mr. Wee and Mr. Chia talking about my arrangement in UKM. So that's all for today thank you folks.
