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.

All about my world, word and story. Of course including my bear, Polar.
Another Internship Another Self-Discovery
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.
An Academic Award
After 3 academic years in university, I have finally obtained a scholarship for my final year. The scholarship covers my entire last two semesters before I graduate. Maybe this is the start of my grand exit out of my academia life. Maybe, just maybe. School’s about to start, we’ll see what happens next.
Striking off more and more things that I do not feel particularly excited about. I guess that is part of life, exploring different options and opportunities and understanding more about yourself.

Where art thou my dream job?

Sports is really fun, badminton is really fun too. I will get better and have even more fun soon!
I’ve started learning to cook some time ago. For valentines day this year, I decided to cook dinner for my family and loved ones. Did not prepare this completely by myself though. Instead, a wonderful and marvellous chef and my master in cooking helped me throughout the process.
Overall the food turned out okay. The soup, best among all the dishes, tasted like those from cans (which is a good thing if you are wondering). A tad too bit salty though.
I had much fun preparing the meal. 10/10, will cook again.
