PhD graduation ceremony

Yeah! Officially completed PhD at Exeter Uni. Attended graduation ceremony last month. Unlike Malaysia, I like the fact that the flow of events here is simple as there is no so many speeches from VIPs and stalls that sell flowers and souvenirs. Come on, after all it’s our big day and not VIPs’. Too many stalls selling flowers and dolls make me feel like the graduation ceremony is sort of commercial event and seems to make the entire ceremony become a market place.

life long learning,

Begin to learn new knowledge beyond my technical skills, coursera offers many free and useful short courses. It's not easy though, given that you need to have commitment to do home work, spend time to attend video lecture etc.
