New layout this time!

And after one year, I'm in love with this new layout for the facts that;

1) It's simple
Growing older you'll always love something simple. So I think to have a layout with an almost similar tone and less different shades suffice to be considered as 'simple'. I once had my first blog layout self-tailored to be very funky and colorful. And I don't think that I had many permanent reader back then for that reason. Then brown-obsession struck me last year, so I changed the layout to this one:

Quite simple, and no complicated navigation. I love that. Dark brown and pastel-pink was a such great combination, ain't it? :)

2) No fussy and big header
I don't much prefer the idea to have my readers to scroll down just to reach my first entry so this one best suits my preference. A unique font for the title is enough, no unnecessary image! :)

Last but not the least,

3) Self-tailored icon!
I've read an article about changing the blog icon long time ago, but didn't find the necessity to do so until I met this current layout! Am so in love with this theme, so I decided to make this blog to be more ME. So I came up with this;

Hehehe, nothing much. Just a 1 minute job using Paint :) Feel free to get the tutorial here. Easy-peasy one ;)

Final Year Project

Alhamdulillah, dipinjamkan lagi oksigen dan organ2 yang berfungsi dengan baik hari ini :)

Quite a long time since I last wrote, but to keep this beloved blog silent for months was never an option; there'd been just so many things coming up, and to watch Running Man was one of those :P But frankly, life doing final year is not something easy when it comes to Final Year Project. Yes, FYP.

My project is basically an experiment-based, testing two types of polymer as the drag reducing agent in water flow system. I'm currently doing major in Reservoir Engineering and to have a project on flow assurance are two non-parallel scopes. But I somehow can't help myself from liking and being enthusiastic in completing this project - though I'd lost track for quite many times, as I've put my best effort doing the preliminary research, and came out with a 100% self-dependent proposal myself!

BUT I'm quite demotivated when thinking that I have to fabricate my own experiment setup; getting the pump, the pipes, the beam and everything! But when I come to think that the current technology we're having now is made up of infinite research and EFFORT and PATIENCE and HEADACHES of other great researches, I just keep telling myself that this is my own responsibility to the industry; to at least initiate a research that can assist another researcher. Got what I meant?

Simply said that, I wanna be admired as much as I admire the people who wrote great research papers. Many of the papers I read talked about simple topics, but later I came to realize that their research is basically combining pieces of other research. And that combined pieces are what I'm impressed with now! Great writings with detailed analysis.

I just hope I can someday be like them.
