Thesis Completed!

From just a short discussion with my final year project's supervisor...

My scrapbook.

to pages of scribbling in a notebook...

Place where I worked.

to endless meetings with different people, obtaining and analysing data and also the not-so-fun-nights alone in the computer laboratory...

Smart leh...:P

to my nervous final year project's presentation...

My thesis entitled "Road Safety Factors of Elderly Drivers".

to my first page of thesis...

Queuing up in front of printing shop.

to queue up in front of the printing shop as early as 6:30 a.m. in order to get my thesis printed and binded...

Me and my thesis!

Finally, I managed to complete my thesis today!

It was such a relieve just after I handed in my thesis to the school's office. However, frankly speaking, I do miss the time when I had to spend days and nights in the computer lab with some of my friends to rush on our thesis. So much laughters and so much fun!

So, does that mean I can take a break now? No! Cause exams in a week time!

Quick Update!

Ok, from the title, you all should know my hands are itchy from blogging now. It has been 10 days since I last blogged... *Sigh*

Anyway, just a quick update on my current status.

I've done with almost everything except for my thesis write up and another assignment. Exams are on the 5th, 9th and 15th November. And I've yet to do any revision! This time, I really don't know how I'll have to deal with all those exams. Can anyone teach me?

I had my final year thesis presentation last Friday and I took some photos of course. But I have no time to upload it yet. So, stay tuned for that. Overall, I think I didn't do well in the presentation. I was so nervous and I even answered some of the questions wrongly. Anyway, it's over and nothing can be done now.

Until next Monday, I'll be busy with my thesis write up. I hope I can finish on time though. I have written only 2/5 of the whole report. Arghh!

I'll write a post about Sasha too! If you all still don't know, this young mummy appeared in TV3! Lihai hor?

Anyway, I'll just leave it here till next time. Again, don't forget me, people! ;)

P/s: A really random post cause I just want to write something.

Friday Night = Relax Time?

Weekend is here! So what?

Computer lab for final year students.

I still had to stay in the computer lab on Friday night when everyone was probably taking a break after long weekdays...


I had to read some journal articles to proceed on to my thesis writing. I went back only at 1a.m.

Look at this!

How I wish I could still sit in front of the computer, not reading the journal articles, but reading all my favourite blogs!

Anyway, I might not be able to enjoy my weekend but I hope you all do! Have an awesome weekend, guys!

To all my Muslims friends,

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!:)

Bake With Kok *Edited*

I don't want to study! I don't want to write up my thesis! I don't want to touch book! Now, you all might ask, "What do you want?"


Toaster to bake cake?

Ever since I moved into this new place, I didn't really bake although I have a huge oven courtesy of the house's landlord. So, this afternoon while shopping for grocery, I asked Chris if he wanted to bake and his answer was as usual, "Anything!"

Pre-mix cake, no!

This time, we didn't go for the pre-mix cake. We decided to bake a cake from scratch!

What cake can we bake since we don't have a whisk, a cake tin, a measuring jug and worst, a sieve? Hmm... nothing you all can think of eh? Thanks to Aunty Judy for her 3 Minutes Sponge Cake recipe. I don't need all that to bake a cake! ;)

The ingredient is the simplest I've ever seen. These are what you need:
  1. 1 cup (8 fl. oz.) of flour.
  2. 3/4 cup of sugar.
  3. 3 eggs.
  4. 3 tablespoons (tbsp) milk.
  5. 1 tbsp melted butter.
  6. 1 teaspoon (tsp) bicarbonate soda.
  7. 2 tsp cream of tartar.
Now, I've mentioned before I don't have measuring jug, right? How did I measure 1 cup or 8 fl. oz. of flour? Flour does not have volume like water, so, you can't just use a mineral water bottle to estimate the amount. With Kok here, anything is possible. I looked up in the net and found this:

1 cup = 16 tbsp

Easy? You can do the maths for 3/4 cup of sugar now. ;)

The instructions are as simple as the ingredients.

Add everything into a mixing bowl.

First, sift the flour. For me, I didn't since I don't have a sift. What is the consequence of not having the flour sifted ah?

Mix everything.

Next, add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and start mixing with a wooden spoon. Whisk is optional here. At the same time, pre-heat the oven to 180 deg. cent.

Into the temporary cake tin.

After everything is well mixed, pour the mixture into a greased and flour cake tin. I used a temporary cake tin instead.

Put it into the oven.

Bake it in pre-heated oven for *Edited* 15 minutes 50 minutes (From Aunty Judy: I was supposed to write 50 minutes instead of 15!) or until it's cooked. That's it! Simple!

Just a reminder, don't pour in too much mixture to a small cake tin like mine. If not, it'll end up like this...


Overflow!!! By the way, the cake on top was done by Chris. He added some coffee to it.

Let's check the finished products.

Well baked.

Both the cakes were well baked except, the centre of the cakes sinked. I've no idea why as it happened to both the cakes.

3 Minutes Sponge Cake.

The cake was a bit tasteless. Maybe more sugar can be added or just add some chopped fresh fruits to it. Another failure is, it was not as spongy as I thought. Or is it like this? This might be due to the flour which was not sifted. Aunty Judy, mind to give advice?

Overall, it's a very easy to bake cake. Like Aunty Judy said, "This is a NEVER-FAIL-CAKE!". Even without most of the baking utensils, I still managed to come out with this cake.

Two bakers.

I don't know if I still have the chance to bake another cake with Chris or not. If yes, I might try another cake recipe given by Aunty Judy; Easy Anyhow Cake.

Try this cake! Let me know you can bake better than me! :)

P/s: Aunty Judy, I posted this recipe up without first getting your permission. I hope you don't mind.
P/s/s: I know I shouldn't blog at this time!
P/s/s/s: Do not open your oven until it's cooked! *Edited*

I can't believe! Today, I attended my final lab in my uni. I can still remember when I had my labs in my first year. In a blink of eyes, I have attended all the labs in my course. Now, I'm left with lab reports to deal with. This is tough as I have to finish my thesis as well as a presentation for that.

Everything will contribute to my marks and I cannot afford to get low marks, so how how? So many things to do!!!

Never mind. Sleep first...
