Let's talk about convocation first. It was held on 12th August 2017, Saturday. An auspicious ceremony to end my 4 years of Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) in UCSI University. I was glad to be awarded First Class Honours after all the toil and sweat. I hope my family is proud of my achievement. Without their support, I would not have come this far. A huge 'thank you' to mom and dad for sponsoring, supporting and guiding me throughout my studies.

My new journey started a week later, 20th August 2017. I enrolled into Taylor's University for Master in Philosophy (Pharmaceutical Sciences). The programme has started for a week already and I'm enjoying myself here. Orientation on the first day was a little intimidating when I saw the range of students taking up postgrad studies. Some were in their 40s, and some were like me who had just graduated. I was so glad to have met Vivi. She's pursuing Master in Science and she had help me a lot throughout this week. The environment in Taylor's Uni is completely different from that of UCSI. People here are actually nice, friendly and helpful, and the service is impeccable. I'm staying in the hostel, a pretty decent but tiny room. Shops here made everything so convenient. No more climbing up and down the slope in UCSI!! I was given a working space in the lab, and I've been spending my past week there doing my literature review. The title of my project is "Application of MM/PBSA methods to binding affinity prediction of GPCRs." I'll be working with docking software for these 2 years here under Dr Jason. Fingers crossed to a successful project!
Cheers to a new start!!!
