[Volume 8 Issue 9, #1791]
都有成三個月冇用我嘅成長系列posts嚟悶親大家喇, 今日就由上一回講到嘅中學生涯繼續落去啦, 哈哈!! 其實去到中六嘅時候, 都仲未想清楚自己將來想做乜, [下刪詳情五百字], 陰差陽錯之下, 跟咗大隊去咗城中某學院讀咗個1+2嘅電器及電子工程.. 1+2課程即係話, 第一年喺呢間學院讀Diploma兼大學一年, 跟住兩年就喺英國讀埋個Degree, 係相當快速嘅一個途徑.. 所以學院生涯其實得短短九個月, 印象唔係太深刻, 唯一唔同嘅係終於唔駛著校服返學, 而且遲到走堂冇人理, 同校風嚴厲嘅中學比較簡直係天淵之別, 哈哈!! 當時中六考完試等成績, 仲有兩個月先算係畢業, 我就得到校方同意去學院上堂, 兩個月之後再返去參加中學畢業典禮, 係好有趣嘅一個經歷.. 呢張相係我少數學院照嘅其中一張, 攝於1996年喺日航酒店舉行嘅畢業典禮上, 當時因為只係Diploma畢業, 所以未戴得四方帽住(都唔明做乜硬係要搞個畢業禮??).. 後面個女人係院長, 化咗灰都仲記得佢一口高八度嘅英文同埋講嘢時候翹起嘅厚脣, 而頒發證書嘅就係當時嘅副教育部長, 大家仲認得嘛?? 之後就係庸庸碌碌準備過英國嘅事喇, 下回再同大家分享大學生涯啦~~ :)
it's been three months i have not bored you with my growing-up series of posts, let's continue today from where we left at my high school life, haha!! when i was in form 6 i still haven't really thought of what i wanted to do in the future, [deleted 500 words on details], in the end and by chances i just followed the flock and got into a local college to do a 1+2 electrical and electronics engineering program.. this 1+2 program means, the first year doing a diploma cum year one syllabus, and the subsequent two years to complete the degree course in UK.. hence my college life was just a short nine months, don't really remember much but what i found different was that i didn't need to wear school uniform anymore, and nobody will care about me being late or skipping lectures, compared to my strict high school it's just so upside-down different, haha!! it was after we sat for our form 6 exams waiting for results and two months before we were officially a high school graduate, we got the consent from the principal to start our studies in the college first, and two months later back to school for the high school graduation, a rather unique experience i would say.. this photo was one of the few photos i took during college life, taken on the graduation at nikko hotel in 1996, since it was just diploma hence we didn't wear a mortar board (but i don't understand why the college still insisted to do that??).. the woman behind was the dean, i shall never forget her high-pitch english and her thick lips pushing out when she talked.. and the man who was giving away the certificate, still remember our former deputy education minister?? after this, it was busy time preparing to fly to UK, and those i shall share with you again some days later.. :)

    1. great to be studying overseas! My girl signed up for 2+1. Still struggling till she comes back for good soon..

    2. I did my degree only after my marriage and it's satisfying that my dream came true even though at a later stage.

      Delete
    3. hahaha, i think i wasn't any excited that time, because that convo was like some kind of "fund raising" event!! oh yeah, i think it's a good experience to be able to study overseas, have the opportunity to see a lot of things.. and good that you finally did your degree even though it's after your marriage, it's never too late to do anything as long as you wanted that to happen :)

      Delete
    4. I find the convocation ceremonies these days become so commercialized!! Need I elaborate more? They are money spinners for many parties, like it or not. Just look at how they set up the photo shoot sessions to save your time but milk you dry.

      Delete
    5. totally agree with that.. it's just like AA, now everyone can go to convocation ceremonies.. but what you have there are all basics, need more extras and better service?? yeah, come sit down and we shall talk~~

      Delete
  5. The time of your life ... receiving your important scroll... how did you feel during that moment? Proud of yourself? I would be if I have the opportunity to receive a degree scroll.. LOL...

    1. We all looked like nerds and minions when younger with frothy hair styles, nerdy Raymond Wong specs and funny clothes! Bwahahahahaha... I dare not post my nerdy photos for fear of some readers getting fits and heart attacks.

    2. So your 1+2 studies programme sent you to UK for a happy stint. You never replied me before when I asked you which part of UK you lived. So I shall have to wait for the answer in your coming posts.

      I always encourage parents to send their kids for twinning-programs to save their unnecessary expenses. The biggest joke I ever heard was Kuku Bird went to a college in Klang for BKT-Twinning which sent him to Michigan! Before that I never knew Klang had good colleges besides abundance of Bak Kut Teh stalls.

    3. TM you are so good with your description .."[ frothy hair styles, nerdy Raymond Wong specs and funny clothes..]"

    4. hey, i guess everyone looked like that macam during the 90s lah.. even the cool Andy Lau and Leon Lai and Aaron Kwok also in that style dei.. surely laugh like hell when we look at ourselves in the good old days, especially those fashion sense, haha!!

      have you ever asked me which part of UK i went to study?? i can't recall that at all.. i studied in Brighton in the Sussex county if you have heard of this place?? :)

      Delete
    5. Yes I asked you before but no answer dei.

      So you went to Brighton!!! Voila! I think my Bil posted a facebook photo showing the seaside with a huge flat cliff that looked so unique and nice. Why won't you post all the Brighton photos to show us?? Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share! Share!

    6. oh the flat cliff was not really in Brighton, what Brighton is famous for is the rocky beach, yes no sand but rocks.. a senior took us there on our second day in UK.. yeah, will try to dig for the photos to share, i'm continuing my "growing up" series of posts, remember?? :)
