Profile

Here's my brief profile:

Chong Hwa Chinese Independent High School, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia  (1989-1994)

        I can still recall my high school days vividly with fondness (who doesn't? =)). There, I met most of my best friends, and got the chance to be involved in a wide variety of interesting extra curriculum activities. In my senior middle year 3 (roughly equivalent to the 2nd year of J.C. in Singapore), I worked very hard with my friends to organize a number of events, like inter-class chinese debate, inter-class poetry reading contest, drama performance etc, for the ECA I was in: Chinese Language Society.  And I spend most of the other time sleeping through my classes, hehe.

DISCS, National University of Singapore, Singapore (1995-1999)

        After I got through the University Entrance Exam (which has been discontinued since 1998, I think) for UEC (Unified Examination Certificate) holder, I was admitted into the DISCS (Department of Information System and Computer Science, Faculty of Science) in 1995. Ploughed through  3 years worth of tutorials, tests and exams, I received my BSc in 1998. After wading through another series of tutorials, tests and exams, received my BSc (Hons) in 1999.
