Doctor Who

This semester I had been addicted to yet another Drama series. To recap here’s roughly one series per semester.

  1. Batman the Animated Series (plus Batman Beyond).
  2. OnePiece
  3. Wizards of Waverly Place
  4. Big Bang Theory
  5. How I Met Your Mother
  6. Doctor Who

Specifically it is the new series of Doctor Who, starting from the 9th Doctor until the 11th Doctor. I’ve seen the 8th Doctor movie too!

Essentially it is about an alien called the Doctor who travels with (a) companion(s) in his time-travelling machine, the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space). And he usually goes to a situation where he has to save the day/planet/ or the whole Universe!

Semester 6 in NUS

It’s been so long since I’ve updated this blog again! Sorry for the long wait my fellow loyal readers. Well, you can largely infer via the long absence that I was in one of the best of mental heath states (in terms of having no  or little stress academically), or I was in one of the worst mental states, so bad the situation was that I can’t put it online.

Which ever it was, one good news that is worth sharing is that I (most likely) will be going to Imperial College London from May to early August for Research Attachment! It has been one of the destination that I wanted to go since my cousin is studying there. (However, currently he’s on exchange to USA, so I won’t get to meet him there.)

But anyway, there’s a classmate and good base of Malaysians and Buddhist Society to join in there too!

Another news is that I would be ending my roommate status with Hariom by the end of this semester. It has been a very great year being roommates! Reason for not being roommate for next semester?

  1. Hariom’s going to France for 6 months for Research Attachment.
  2. I’m going to University Town (since RVR old block is closed down).

Ah, at last I am going to interact with the USP people a lot more than I used to in the Residential College in University Town.

Anyway, back to the beginning of the semester, I’ve gotten these modules to have fun with!

  • PC2230 Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics
  • PC3236 Computational Methods in Physics
  • PC4232 Cosmology
  • PC4274 Mathematical Methods 3
  • PC5228 Quantum Information and Computation
  • UIS3924 Independent Study Module: Black Hole Information Paradox

Oh and updating on my CAP from last semester: From the CAP I decided that I do not have the patience or aptitude for doing pure Mathematics, so I decided to drop my second major (again) and drop the Special Programme in Mathematics. Therefore also I need to get all As for all modules from now on to get back to first class CAP.

Hence one great important, sad and necessary decision is to: not to rerun for NUSBS Management Committee again next year.

Anyway it has also been a good year being in the NUSBS MC, a great year, a year I really love. For there are 14 other wonderful person that comes together with me, and we laughed, we played, we worked, we learned, we practised, we seriously get to know each other very, very, very, very well! Ahhhhh…makes me more sad that I’m not rerunning again…

More to come in future posts:

  • Addiction to Doctor Who
  • Chinese New Year and Family
  • Various events and talks involving Buddhist Society

Until then, see ya!
