I saw posts on Instagram where people post pictures about how horrible and nasty 2020 was. Here is my version of it.
2020 was nothing but a disaster at the global scale. People died from COVID-19, jobs are lost and the economy took a drastic hit. But I am here to document that 2020 was a rather decent or almost good year for me.
- I have graduated with 2nd upper in Computer Science in NUS (YAY!)
- The giftforgood team has officially launched the website on 14 Sept and we are doing decently well as of now
This is me sharing my experience of first time applying for internship. I’ve got this friend , Jin Ying, that kept on nagging me during my December holiday to tidy up my resume and prepare to apply for the summer break internship. I’m glad that I did it. Some people asked me why do I want to apply internship so early when I’m just a freshmen? Don’t you want to enjoy your summer holiday? Well, I certainly want to enjoy the holiday but I felt that it was more important to gain experience in the working world. To understand different…
It’s been 3 months since I hosted my SGMRT_bot. During the explosion of the vulcan post on Facebook. There was a sudden increase in the amount of people using it. From the initial less than 100 subscribed users to now 7200 subscribed users. It was a roller coaster ride for me as well. Initially, the code wasn’t planned to handle so many users and everything was done in a poor sequential way.
For instance, when there is a breakdown detected. I would sequentially send out all 7000 users. Little did I know, this have caused an spike in the RAM…
Dear NUS SoC, Why your printers so hard to add? Well, as an incoming freshmen, i didn’t know anything about adding printers to my computer. All the knowledge gain from camps and friends in NUS was that there were printers in the basement as well as at level 1.
Of course, i asked around more when i wanted to print some lecture notes for class. People only pointed me to a link where i have to follow some pictures and try my own luck to add the printers to my macbook. On that website, there are kind of a few…

So recently, i got very intrigued how Pushbullet works and i did some research during my free time in camp. Some of the stuff i found out is that they mostly used Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) to send notification and text/images to all your connected devices.
Using GCM of course have some draw backs is that you have to reset your device token whenever you reformat your devices which is a hassle to always check for .
Since recently, i’ve been building telegram bots during my weekends and free time, i’ve decided to integrate a similar…
Firstly, this medium post is very much inspired by this post that i read online . Feel free to take a look as well https://hackernoon.com/the-programmers-guide-to-booking-a-plane-11e37d610045#.m44kw6xzw
Okay, lets start with the real goodie stuff here.
After reading the medium post, i got inspired to do my own data scraping of websites that sells Airplane tickets. Hence, i went with Singapore’s Scoot Airline because it’s like the most common site people go to buy airplane ticket to nearby countries like Thailand(Bangkok), Indonesia or even Malaysia. Also, i believe it serves the cheapest flight ticket.
Okay, so i’ve decided to go with NodeJS…
Many years ago, my house used to be victims of Loan Shark paint pouring. It wasn’t our first time facing such a situation. Even when the situation died down, we merely repainted the walls and just suck it up.
However, this year it was different. I woke up to see all my house windows poured with GREEN paint. It was everywhere, every nooks and crannies. Of course i am frustrated. We even confronted our neighbors about it , asking why did he go loan from the loan sharks again and obviously he denied all claims made by us. …
I've stumbled upon Unsplash website last year and ever since, I've been using it to set wallpapers on my computer as well as my phone. However, when I set wallpaper on my phone, I would download it on my computer and transfer it to my phone using pushbullet extension in Chrome.
So, I have decided to create an App on Android using Unsplash API which is amazingly FREE. For this application, I tried to follow Material Design Guidelines as close as possible. I spent my weekends creating and designing prototype. After the prototype is done, I tested it on my…
