A Walk in the Admiralty Park

Just went to Admiralty Park with LEO this morning. And I’ve been suffering from a splitting headache since 8 hours ago. There wasn’t much good shots taken but yeah it was fun aside from the mosquito bites. And the weird feeling that we’re lost when we stopped in the middle of a random road, with trees on both sides. I should have taken picture of the weird place we were in but I forgot to.

We were totally overdressed for today. Short rainfall, and a little muddy trails, were expecting to have concrete paths, since it’s a park, so I thought it’s like Bishan Park kind of place. Well, think it feels more like a reservoir, well, it’s still a nice place to explore hahas. I’ve touched up on the photos already, not sure if you guys would want me to post it on Facebook or not, thus I think maybe its better to post here instead. Lemme show you guys the before and after pictures, feels like those online before and after make-up effect kind of photos :

Still thinking whether to use this picture for silhouette or for framing. Cuz… honestly I think it’s harder to get a framing shot than a silhouette shot. Either way, I’d definitely keep this first and see what else can I come up with hahas.

This might be a better picture for silhouette. But, I think if I actually submit these 2 photos for both silhouette and framing, my lecturer might just minus my marks for being too lazy LOL.

Actually should have asked Lynnette to stand further down the road and there will be like 2 frames. Argh, what a pity *roll on floor*. And seriously, I should print a A5 size of this picture and give it to Oi to pin it up on her room wall.

Not sure if I should use the below for framing cuz it doesn’t look nice at all. And while looking for framing shots, I realised Oi really have talent to become a stalker.

Random girl duo / band. This should be used as an album picture man. The one with the cap the rapper, the other can be the background singer. And I’m just a camera-man taking pictures for their albums T.T

The above is chosen for my assignments, I’m contemplating which ballet picture to use for framing. In any case, I have 2 confirmed pictures for my assignment now, and 6 more to go.

Below are album pictures for L and O:

A girl running away from home. Should have cropped off the buildings too, so she’ll look like she’s lost in some greens.

Oi, you have no idea how hard it is for me to adjust the setting colors, because your leg look damn sunburnt everytime I move up the color contrast.

That’s it. Dudettes, if you all wan the pictures, tell me I’ll send it to ye.

I thought of a picture for “Pattern” already. Do you guys have any idea where to go to take picture of a spiral of stairs?

After editing the photos, it feels like the pictures that are taken with my camera are covered with a thin layer of grey veil. Ah~ The power of photo enhancement.

 

 

 

Lecturer: This is not cheating ah~ This is called “photo enhancement”..

 

 

 

 

Phew, papers over

It’s been such a long time since I took papers. Well, true and not true to that, I did have a math paper like 6 months ago. I remembered practicing questions everyday, from 10am -6pm, and then 8pm – 11pm for 3 days. Usually I’m not that hardworking type, hell, of all the words that can exist to describe me, hardworking is not one of them. I’m not a hardworking person, and the reason why I hate math that much is also because math is a subject that require you to keep practicing and practicing. I don’t like to practice on things, I prefer to understand things, rather than forcing myself to memorize things or doing it over and over again for 10 thousand times. Precisely why I flunked my A math in secondary school as deep as the depth of the Pacific Ocean (have no idea how deep is that).

N-e-way, I had a hard time going through that math module, remembered sitting through the lecture for 2 hours 30 minutes, feeling more confused than ever for every lecture. That’s when I took to practicing, because there wasn’t any choice for me, and I don’t want to repeat that module again. It was torturous enough for me, imagine going through all those torturous moments again. I did managed to pass it, I dropped 1 paper at that time though; System Architecture. I was planning to change my course at that time, and that 1 module was something I cannot bring over to my current course (which is a good thing, I don’t really understand the )*&@) that was going on at the later part also). So I ended up with that math paper and a java paper (as long as it’s a programming exam, I think I should be quite okay with it, unless it’s some data struct thing).

I had a software engineering paper, and a human computer interface paper yesterday. For some reason, I thought that I will be able to handle it, and only took 2 days leaves to study for these 2 papers. On top of that, I hadn’t went to 1 lecture at all. Well.. Technically speaking, I went for 1 and a half lecture for software engineering. None for human computer interface. And then I didn’t even study at all during the exam break, which I used it to slack to my fullest, and when I finally sat down to study on this Tuesday for my software engineering, the horrible truth dawned on me: that I am seriously under-prepared for the thing.

Those thick-until-can-crush-your-skull-textbooks that are given to me for the modules, I always thought it’s kinda like a guideline thing, or for random decoration in the room. I didn’t know I really had to go through that. I used to have a couple of those kind of books back when I was in poly. It was.. used.. as.. a.. guideline / decoration thing, there’s 1 that I never even flipped through before (some system architecture thing, even now have no idea what is it supposed to use for). Within that 2 days, I’ve flipped through more than half for each of the thick books. Not sure if turning up for lecture will have change what I’ve went through or not. There was so much )(@*#)@ to remember, and so )(*)$@#@ time for me because I was hugging the buddha’s leg at the last minute. And even though the modules are quire similar to each other, it’s also very different, both focusing on different aspects. Once I’ve studied software engineering, I forgot things for human-computer interface and when I studied human-computer interface, I forgot about software engineering.

There’s only a one hour break in between the papers.

I has to switch my mind from software engineering to human computer interface within that 1 hour. A lot of things that I crammed into that puny brain of mine didn’t come out, and things I’ve only flicked a few looks at came out. There was even 1 question in software engineering that’s tackling things concerning project management, I did not even read through that part.

Asking me how does this factors affect project progress thing: financial status, stability, modularity, maturity and 1 I don’t even remember what. What in the hell is modularity??? Owing to the crapping skill I got some my literature class back in the stone age period, I really crapped a lot. Whatever the crap I can think of, I crammed it in the answer book, using as many software engineering terms I can think of into the answer, hopefully the markers can take pity on me and give me 1-2 marks.

DOESN’T MATTER NOW. I’M FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE. For the time being.
