Currently,I'm in the United Kingdom (Sheffield) doing my degree programme in University of Sheffield. My course is titled Biomaterials Science & Tissue Engineering.


There are more to life than just academic qualifications.

Experiencing the world is something one cannot learn in a classroom environment.

Graduating from university is just the beginning of life.

Spending more money on getting better quality products beats spending more money getting many of the same cheap quality products.

There's only so much we can remember,that's why taking photographs are important in remembering the good times.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There was this time,back in the army,and my rifle/infantry company was walking through the jungle to get to the enemy positions,then we had to walk through this crazy pool of swamp water!So of course,we went into the swamp and somehow get ourselves nearer to the objective.What is even crazier is that the swamp stinks of rotten eggs,the water level was chest high and the path was soft and squishy (as though we're walking on quicksand).
