week 1

So, my first week at Fusionopolis is over. It’s been a rather short week! Enjoying every bit of it, and can’t wait to go back!

A few highlights:

1) The people there are very friendly, esp the 1st-yr attachment gang and the young PhDs. (Haven’t actually seen any old PhDs, so can’t comment on them…). Really enjoyed talking to ST, SL and V. Hoping to meet up with them for lunch or just to chat next week.

2) Speaking of lunch, I’ve managed to AVOID EATING ALONE for the entire week! Which, I must say, is no mean feat! In fact, I think J and Z had been eating alone all along until I asked them out for lunch. So far, I haven’t eaten with the same group of people twice 🙂

3) I haven’t eaten at the same PLACE twice either! There’re so many good places to eat, with free transport via shuttle bus! Holland V, Biopolis, JTC and of course, Fusionopolis itself. Lots of food I haven’t tried tho… Looking forward to having lunch at NUS! Quite a few ppl I can meet there…

4) And I haven’t even mentioned my WORK yet. Which isn’t really work… Cos i’m just sitting at my desk reading C++ & cryptography and playing around with code…. which is my idea of a playground… ST and SL gave me quite a few pdfs to read!Quite mathematical too! A very good introduction to topics like groups, fields, rings, matrices, lattices and elliptic curves! Not to mention, number theory!

5) And when I feel I’ve sat down long enough at the desk, there’s FREE coffee, tea & milo in the pantry, which has an AWESOME view! (I’m on the 19th floor) Can see all the way to the port, overlooking NUS, ITE, ACS… the only other high rise nearby is the Singtel building, which is quite far away…

Yeah, so… It’s been a great week! Looking forward to my next ~15 weeks there! My daily log is under the fold.workstation
