Tripod: Qualysis cameras
In a research lab setting everyday, doesn’t feel like it’s work but rather just like uni? There are deadlines and stuffs you need to meet but they are manageable. Working with a group of people from various backgrounds to create ground breaking facts in the current database is mind blowing! 🤯 Meeting mechanical engineering prof from NTU, a confusing dr with Sports science, engineering, and clinical based, one of the 3 P.h.D occupational therapist in SG, hidden mechanical engineering in an IT guy from A-star and 4 other friendly admin workers. These people can only come together for a discussion once a week. If they say the discussion will take only 2 hours, that’s a lie. It can take up to 6 hours : after lunch till working hours are over. Brains are constantly generating new movements and trying to make sense and convince others of what they think is right. It is true when the lecturer tells you research is all based solely on the hypothesis that the researcher creates.
Although it’s Singapore, this would be the one place that is least stressful, non taxing, and very relaxing environment to work in. The fact that I’m Malaysian, they do recognise your ability and capability of work and offer job opportunity.
Though I’m not the intern for RRIS, they took me in as though I am part of the research team. Due to power down in our lab, everyone planned an outing! How cute. Went to Changi side for lunch, bowling and sight seeing. 🍽🎳👀 the beach didn’t felt like it was part of SG. Hot blazing sun but the cooling strong wind topped it all! Feels like New Zealand 😂
Apart from work, it was the end of the year, hence no Floorball sessions. Instead of getting fitter and hopefully take the chance to improve some Floorball skills, I think I’m deproving. 🧐🤦🏼♀️ also with the restrictions from one of the worst injury I’ve gotten... all I do is sit in the lab, work, eat, sleep. 😪 lucky enough to have a recreational Floorball session with TP and SP while they are preparing for IVP 2018. Motivation to run in the evening? Nope it will never happen because right after work, I’ll be drained and all I do is eat and sleep as soon as I reach home. All in all... internship was good. Great eye opener and first hand experience on an advanced lab setting.
So we had another cool device, 3D printer! Though it was a killer device with the manual in Korean, it has been one of the things that triggered me to actually spend time on it and figure it out. Almost like throwing me into a pool and expect me to learn how to swim to survive and not drown. But I guess that was what that brought me this far which I am grateful.
Let me show you my failed fish hook look alike.
