My Convocation is Coming


It's my turn for convocation this coming weekend. Had been preparing for it in the past weeks. There are so many documents that has to be filled and mailed to them. It's sad that I still have to send those document in post office despite the technologies we currently have.

If you do not know, I've spent 4 years in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) for a bachelor degree of science (Computer Science). The university is located at Skudai, Johor, 4 hours or 360km away from my home, 30 minutes away from Singapore.

This coming Friday (22.08.2005), there will be a medal presentation event. Five of us (YiYang, CheeKuan, HooiNee, Lek and I) have planned to car-pool there. SweeHong, our good 'brother', will not be with us because he will be driving his parents there. Last Saturday, we came out to meet at SS2, just to discuss this matter. It will be a one-day trip.

Next event, our convocation, would be on Monday (29.08.2005). We all will travel there separately to drive our own parents there. I plan to drive there early in the morning. Some of them will be driving there a day earlier. On that day, we have to register ourselves at 6:45am. I think you can guess how early I will have to start my journey from Klang. The event will end at around 12:30pm. We shall have a photo session around the campus till evening, before travelling back. Hopefully all my coursemates will be there, taking pictures with me.

I really hope my friends in Klang would be able to be with me, but I know it's hard. It's on a working Monday. Will update again soon.

    Thanks.

    I'm too late to find hotels. Those nearby are already full. Those in JB is very expensive and almost fully occupied. Lazy to call one by one to ask. Moreover my father prefer to travel early in the morning rather than night time. :)
