The perfect weather for me is “aircon” weather. That is, you go outside, and temperatures are similar to that of the internals of a shopping mall. 25 degree Celsius plus minus is perfect.

I’ve started a new YouTube series whereby I consolidate some of the more interesting and cool releases (products, services, open source code etc!) over the week. Check out my first introductory video and let me know what you think!
Two weeks ago, I took my final academic examination. Last Friday, I submitted my final academic report. Learning does not stop though. It never does.
This week marks the final week of my 3 month internship stint with Google. I learn a lot about Google, its products, services, the culture and of course the people. I am really fortunate to be able to experience what is it like to work in one of the best companies (in terms of the workplace happiness survey thing) in the world.
