Finally Arrived

Finally arrived...
Finally, arrived in Hong Kong, started as a student, going into classes. Everything is new for me here.

Warm Weather...
The weather here is still summer! Oh... no... I thought it would end by September, and now I took almost all thick clothes, lol. I'm afraid of cold, you know... well, the autumn would only begins in the end of October. But the library and classrooms are very cold because of the air-cond. The clothes that I bring is still suitable if I'm going to stay in the school for the whole day :-) Walking out the street at night is still humid and warm.

2 hours of traveling X 2 ...
I stay in Fan Leng, which it takes about 1and a half hour to 2 hours of public transport to the university. However, GOD is forever faithful. I had started to make friends with my classmates, interesting though. And I'm as usual, forever blur in everything... haha. But I do meet wonderful people, bless you!

Malaysian Classmates...
There are 2 Malaysian government officers here just to take the summer course. It is great to meet someone from home! I'm still looking around for an accommodation near school. The one in Fan Leng is alright, accept for the long hours of traveling. And it is expensive, just travel in between the school and home will easily cost me about HKD1500/mth.

Out Of The Box
The class is interesting. It seems that I would need to learn how to transform the normal days practice and logical thinking or action into conceptual ideas in drawing out theoretical and practical enforcement. Feel like studying philosophy now. A lot of creative thinking were involved. By listening to the conversations between the lecturer and the other students, it is like you really need to jump out of the box, and it's a bunji jump! If you think I'm crazy enough, I think I'm rather a kinder garden kid in this situation. lol. I will really need a lot of prayers form you people! :-D

My first assignment is deal on September 2, and I am now in the library trying to look at the data and do some research. The assignment only require 2 pages, but the citation might take 1 page(exclude the 2 pages). A lot of readings! And I will be amazed if I could fix all that I want to present in 2 pages. Whew...what a challenge! I need that though :-) I often write too long...

I'm trying to focus on the topic of "Measurements and Prevention of Suicide in Japan." However, the focus area still need to be refine.

I have 4 clinical papers to read, 2 chapters in the text book to read, and a bundle of notes to work on, today. Urrh.... got to go! Will need to see the possible place where I will be staying later.
