[Volume 7 Issue 8, #1515]
最近忙於我篇研究論文中, 發覺其實寫學術性論文對我(呢個IT背景嘅人)嚟講, 確實係件難事.. 之前喺職場, 邊有呢啲長篇大論嘅文章?? 全部都係簡短精杆㗎啦, 係唔係?? 而且每次寫嘅報告, 都係比較技術性質㗎嘛.. 以前三兩日可以完成一份報告, 依家一日最盡都係寫兩頁咋陰功!! 點解?? 因為每寫一個句子, 就要去搵好多參考支持自己個point, 又或者去搵好多參考反駁其他人嘅point.. 而且仲要寫到有連貫性, 前呼後應兼一氣呵成, 真係挑戰我囉.. 希望可以快快寫好呢一篇最後一擊啦, 阿彌陀佛~~
講開又講, 我呢份論文需要搵好多喺吧生谷工作嘅IT人透過電郵幫我做調查問卷, 大家如果有朋友可以幫手, 麻煩通知我吖~~ 感激不盡!! :)
am occupied with my research dissertation recently, and i realized writing academic dissertation is really something tough for (someone with an IT background like) me.. previously in my jobs, there is nothing that i need to write in such a long magnitude because all reports are required to be concise and precise, right?? furthermore, contents in those reports are mostly technical.. i can get one report done in two to three days last time, but now i can at most write two pages of text, that's pathetic!! why then?? because for every sentence i write, i need to search for references to support my point, or maybe search for references to oppose views from others.. also the need to have continuity between sentences, well structured to have a smooth flow of ideas.. that really challenges me and how i hope i can get this final one done quickly, amitabha~~
BTW for this dissertation, i need to find quite a number of IT people within Klang Valley to help me with a questionnaire, if you or your friends can help, hope you'll contact me, my heartiest gratitude!! :)

    1. It's not easy and rather time consuming to do your dissertation. Even for a tesis, I had spent my precious free time just for that. You definitely have to do lots of research and they have to be acknowledged. Surely you know how to go about it.

    2. Good morning, Wenn, SK, everyone!

    3. SK, is that an English title I see up there? A 4-word title somemore! Cool!

    4. Good morning, HS!

    5. Morning everyone! :)

      It's Thursday and I'm back to work. Wuwuwuwu~

      So quiet at the office and feeling lazy to do much! Lazy to spam too! LOL

    6. Good afternoon, everyone!!

      First day back to office and I need to clear my emails and piling workload~ I love long holidays and hate its aftermath! I even think of not returning at all... but I can't fight the reality T___T

      Luckily, I don't have to do any research dissertation at this old age anymore~ You won't see me graduate in 10 years time, given this dissertation :p

    2. Good morning, everyone. Where is HS today? I am back to work already. I couldn't sleep well last night. Toss here and there. I felt stressed to come back to work.

      Delete
    3. HS is reading our comments but sulking and hibernating like Garfield now! Woi HS come out and comments la... Don't be so small gas!! Hear me?

    4. Aisehman, Yan, I thought you were going to be first commenter today - reference my comment in the earlier post.

      SP, what merajuk?! Why you always so negative say I merajuk one?! No one read my comments in the earlier post, meh? Now, I betul-betul merajuk!

      Delete
    5. Yan .. I thought you are getting excited to work so that is why toss here and there? or jin jin keep on disturbing you so make you sleepless

      Delete
    6. HS - yes I read your comment that you don't want to be the first commenter but I thought you just joking.... don't le merajuk.

      Delete
    8. HS, you no need to give way to me to be champion. Like that no shiok. I want to be champion with my own capability. wokey?

      Delete
    9. Eh Harlow SP, you think I am a Santa Claus giving free hugs to small gals? They have to pay me to hug them okay!! I am not like you who can hug any ah moi or Gasing Trees for free!

      Delete
    10. Yan, no offence. Maybe SP was right afterall - I was only joking. Oh well..

      Delete
    11. HS, no problem one. We all are great jokers. No hard feeling one. I believe everyone have big gas here, no?

      Delete
    12. Adoi this HS is small gal and worried so much. We are all certified HCP (Hard Core People)

      Delete
    13. sometime it is really funny..
      when HS beat them flat then they start saying wah HS you like a stalker..
      then when HS give way.. then they say that they want to win it fair and square...
      so apa you all mahu le? kakakakaka..

  4. so now I guess that you are working hard on searching for some data and information..
    but I think nowadays is much simpler.. we have Google search.. and we could get more information from it...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Those days too when I was doing my tesis. I googled a lot and also read a lot from reference books.

      Delete
    2. SP it is not that simpler like you googling for HCP. If it is so easy, SK would have finished in 2 days and no need to call for SOS!!

      Delete
    3. It is easy to write this type of technical assignment. However it won't be that tough for SK too, as he has used to write blog. I am he can pull through this soon.

      Delete
    4. Annay TM .. HCP is easy to get online?
      hmm tonight must do some research .. lol..
      so i guess he need to head down to the public "library"...

      Delete
    5. Googling online may give one a lot of info but sources from the internet are not always accepted as references. However, the internet is a great resource for reference materials to check up on.

      Good luck on your dissertation, SK. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step" comes to mind and you have accomplished that, the first step.

      Delete
    6. Let me backtrack a little.

      Guys, what is HCP some kind of hamsap thingy? HamChimPaeng I know.

      OMGoodness! Is that it? LOLOLOLOLOL...........

      So academic one this acronym..

      Delete
    7. SP and TM's HCP is Hard Core Porns

      SK's HCP is happy cooking pan

      Yannie's HCP is happy call pan

      Meow's HCP is happy cocking pan

      HS, you get it now?

      Delete
    8. Aiyoh! Very the paiseh! I better go stand in the corner now. Or shall I delete that comment? *blushing*

      Yan, thanks for the list of meanings - all very clean ones by contrast (except the first one). Oops..

      Delete
    9. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!!!! Meow's Happy Cocking Plan with Kaldip? Wakakakakakaa

      Delete
    10. Wah!! HCP team is expending with new vocab. Ham Chim Paeng?? Kakakaka, the little girl is always so naive and pure (and always thinking about delicious food). Don't bother to entertain those lecherous uncles and aunties, you'll end up polluted.

      Delete
    11. Ham Chim Paeng for SP and TM is also Apom, because everything fluffy in middle, they will call Apom.

      Delete
    12. you know that ham chim peng got another meaning one..
      last time I heard my mum say about this when i was a kid..

      Delete
    13. SP, don't always make people suspense, what story your mum said to you.

      Delete
    14. I think ham chim peang is pussy cat...
      i remember that there is one time she saw a girl fell off the bicycle and she say that hopefully she didn't hurt her ham chim peang...
      then i start to think hard what does she meant?

      Delete
    15. SP, your mum damn funny la! Like mother like son. Now I know you have your mum's great sense of humor and HCP ideas. lol!

      Delete
    16. Whoah! I learn new vocab from SP today! HCP sure can be a lot of things, eh?

      Delete
    17. LOL...eh you belum list HCP for LIna is what leh. Now we know HCP for HS is Ham Chim Peah

      google can do so much only la. Still some data need to be gather through working experience or eople involved in the industry.

      Otherwise everyone would just hand in "copied" paper from the google only la

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. TM, guinness stout can help extract brain juice or other juice? I never heard about that. SK, drink brands chicken essence better. Guinness Stout will make SK so high and stimulate SK other part of juice out.

    2. drink some ali cafe tongkat ali coffee..

      Delete
    5. TM, stout is only perfect for aheming with Kamala. SK now needs all his energy to concentrate on his dissertation, not playing around the bushes with Kamala, dei~

      If he fails his final dissertation, Kamala will piak his stupid head and leaves him for a better man. Kekekeke!

    4. Tm very sharp eyes wor. must be lotsa practice from observing something lol.

      sk forgot use spell check functions kot from do so much work

      Delete
    5. My eyes always veli veli sharp for wrong reasons only!!

      Delete
    6. SK purposely wanted to test his readers on the wrong spelling. So it's proven that TM is very alert and observant.

      Yannie, better be careful on your camwhored photos, TM's eyes might be lurking to see whether your bra is on or off ~~:p

      Delete
    7. lol on ah hua..
      then I better wear few more boxers.. later when he meet me he will keep on stare on my big bulge

      Delete
    8. SK cannot test his readers here la, Yvonne.

      Here got cikgu and hapsaper who have very sharp eyes.

      Hmmm...am wondering whether your idea of SK testing the readers eyes here got some validity or not. Maybe he needs someone to help check his dissertation before he hand it in.
