finally, no more courses!

yes! no more courses to take!

Just finished giving my presentation for the course of my program as the last presenter. It was for the interdiciplinary seminar comprising students from the physics, mathematics and cs departments. Think it went kinda ok. Mainly because i made it very simple, which i think is how it should be considering that u're presenting it to a bunch of people with different backgrounds.

There was also another guy from the quantum group. He presented some stuff that I had no idea about. And even after his presentation, i still have no idea what it was about. Thought maybe it was me who is too dense to get what he was presenting.

But my groupmate, who is supersmart (who lent me his notebook - thanks, basti!) came along, and he too was lost. We dont know whether the presenter was too lazy to make and effort (and not copy and paste his older slides) or simply wanted to make his work look sooooo complicated and that he is really smart to work on such problem. If it is the latter, then i bet based on my presentation, people are just gonna think that my work is child's play BUT at least they understood it (i hope) and the relevance to them is clearer (i talked about sensor nodes placed on human body yada yada yada, cant get any more relevant than that, can we?)

Got some questions. One of them wasnt very clear, i answered it anyway and i hope he got the answer. The course is compulsory, so a pass is really good enough.

Anyway, what's important is i finished my courses, yay! FINALLY, now i can focus on my thesis...

Tricking Ayah

Adel dah mobile sekarang.
So we often try to make sure that the doors to certain places yg off-limits for him such as the toilet and the kitchen are often closed. Dia pun tahu tmpat tu dia tak boleh pegi, tp kalu skali nampak pintu terbuka, dia sure laju je pegi towards those doors.

Tonight was no different, tapi kali ni dia pandai nak sneak keluar.

What happened was... well, i needed to go to the bathroom, so i went there tapi terlupa tutup pintu living room, but i figured, takpela, Alem boleh tengok-tengokkan dia. 

Adel saw tht the door was open, so apa lagi, terus dia pegi situ. But not all the way, dia pegi sampai keluar, then patah balik, paused, checked on Ayah. Okay, Ayah (pura-pura) sibuk main komputer.

Then keluar pintu, but again patah balik, paused, checked on Ayah. Okay, Ayah still (pura-pura) tak perasan, keluar balik... 

Then dia buat skali lagi, but this time, dia confident Alem tak perasan, dia jalan terus towards the bathroom.
Nampak dia lama je hilang, Alem g kejar, dia dah depan bathroom dah time tu. 

Not that dia bole masuk pon sebab aku sure block dia. But the fact that dia dah pandai nak kelentong tu yang kelakar but aishhhh.... looks like we have to grow eyes at the back of our heads la camni....

keje keje keje

so we had macam group retreat, kena present keje dulu and ideas for the future. And as usual, diorg buat kat tmpt yg bole ski.

Since this probably going to be our last winter here, alem and adel pon join sekaki. And on the last day, kami try skiing. Group members kitorg ni baik2 belaka. Sorg taught me, then sorg lg offered ajar alem pulak. Adel tak diajar la sbb dia cuma bole main ski atas sofa je, while waiting for us to get back (we took turns la of course -- nasib baik kami lebih kurang sama saiz, bole share ski equipments).

Overall, syok gak. Lg syok if i'm fitter, and not too tired. Entahlah, sejak dua menjak ni, rasa penaaattt sgt, not too mention, tido tak penah cukup, mata panda ni mcm akan permanently tattooed around my eyes je. Tp takpa, anak punya pasal kan...

We thought the blanket fort is enough to prevent him from falling over the bed. Malam ni tadi, dia almost terterjun katil. Bahaya betol la budak ni. 

The weather was bad, so the others went for ski-touring, instead of skiing. We went sight-seeing. Walked downhill and uphill for about 500m, came back, tergolek atas katil.
 Got back, thought of putting him down on the ground and letting him play with the snow. Alih2, dia dah tertido tahap kejut pon dia buat tak layan. Syok sgt la tu tido dalam sejuk2.

 Taken right before I felt. Told my friend to just snap a pic, doesnt have to be perfect. And he was like, "I'll make sure it'll be good enough for facebook." Hampeh, and to prove him wrong, terus tak jadi letak kat fb hahahaha
Alem diajar

And oh, my presentation sucked, blurgh....
