Where : Room - MC

Completed my first week of 3rd year 1st sem. So cepat pelajar tahun tiga liao. Not too bad. Let's jut summarize a bit. On Monday, I had my first Motion Graphic class with Joanne. It's a new thing for me, learning a new software : Adobe After Effects. I am not a big fan of MG. That's why I didn't sign up for Advance Motion Graphic. Well, I might just like it after this semester maybe. But I won't choose AMG still. Reason being I intend to do things related to something interactive like websites and games. That's why my electives are 3D for Multimedia, Advance Digital Media, Gameplan&Design and Advance Web Design. Anyway, Joanne's class was interesting. Have to come up with 2 concept board next week. On Tuesday, I had Design Method 3 with Sweii, my head of department together with Sook Chiung, my tutor. As usual, due to our small number of students, we have discussion instead of a real lecture. Design Method could be quite boring when it comes to the first few hours. But usually we'll have free&easy time for researches before having a one on one discussion with the lecturer about our thoughts and idea. This week we got our proect brief entitled "Re-Interpreting Playground". Basically it's about our POV on the dying traditional games against the rapidly blooming digital games. From there we had an hour to do research in whichever way we want. All of us were glued to the internet. Way too lazy to move our butt ove to the library. Then we talked to our lecturer/tutor about our POV and takes on that issue. All of us ended up with different ideas about that issue. And we have to be specific about what area we want to target on. I am not very sure about my classmates ideas but I know we targeted on different perspective of that issue. For me, I am going to concentrate on the "Brain stimuli from games". I seriously have no idea how to even build a project from that. More research!!

On Wednesday, I had class with Kenny. This class we have some of the seniors with us. They chose to take 3D later. Like I mentioned, it was pretty stressful. Haha. I have no idea why. Anyway, this class we are going to model an object and then animate it. Fu... Software to learn from this class will be Lightwave. First class went well. Hopefully will be able to handle it. Then Thursday, Hazmer's class. Only Tanyus, Selvia, Samantha, Wahyu and I take this subject. Advance Digital Media. Sook Chiung is our tutor. It was a recap session. So Hazmer helped us to recap what we've learned 2 terms ago. Went pretty well but many a time got interrupted with burst of laughters. So random. After class, we buka puasa with Hazmer. Samantha and Sook Chiung did not join us.

So we went Sushi Zanmai...again. When I see Sushi Zanmai, I see all 5 of us. =.=! Same goes to Starbucks. Anyway, macam biasa, ketawa until wanna die. And again, macam biasa, after sitting there for one hour plus, we made a trip to the toilet. And then we went to Starbucks cos Hazmer wanted to show us the music game in his DS Lite. Had so much fun playing that game. So funny the characters and all. It was quite an eye opener. We left starbucks at around... 11PM. Hazmer sent us home. In his car we talked about the coming new lecturer. We gave so many conditions for the new lecturer in order to teach our class, plastic surgery la, must be funny la, cannot too serious la, cannot deduct marks la, must eat dinne with us la and yada yada yada. Must sign contract also. Hahahahahah! Laughed until wanna die. Oh, it was such a joke about Hazmer's aboriginal face. Behtahan man.

And so after I reached home, I washed up, did my Quiet Time and did my assignment: play flash games. Serious la. That's my assignment. Our project for ADM is a Point-and-Click Adventure game. Part of me wanna pengsan cos I did point-and click for my DM2 class, the smelly shoes one. And also now I am doing Casually Killed graphics, also point-and-click game. A bit scared cos' I macam ada this fixed perception on how a PAC game should look like. But a bigger part of me felt very relieved it's PAC and not SHMUP game cos I don't really fancy shooting game that much. I am the sort of person who play a game for its' storyline. And also, during the holiday, I kept on thinking on the what kind of story I could come up with for a game. Still, being such a critic on storyline, I am afraid I will even criticise my own. =.=! Oh well, at least it's something that I really wanna do. So yea, my asignment will be, play more games. What a life. Not only that, for Motion Graphic, I should watch more youtube. Life is great until you have to build the whole thing out. -.=!

Oh, and I finally understand how Array works in programming. Wait... better dont say that until I try it out. =.o!

Kla..gtg. Tomorrow have to go back Malacca. Ta!
