Last Saturday, 15 November 2008, I dropped by at Wisma Genting to give some moral support to my students who took part in the E-Genting Programming Competition 2008 - 3 students from the BSc (Hons) Software Engineering and 1 student from the BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronics Engineering. I'm glad that they willingly agreed (after much persuasion for 2 of them) and registered for the competition.
The competition was held from 10 am to 6 pm. I didn't stay long. At around 10:30 am, I walked over to Pavilion. I had a good exercise - doing window shopping. I bought a Disney magazine and nail clipper for Jordan. Then, I had a cup of refreshing juice (orange + carrot). Seng Chor was supposed to pick me up at 2:30 pm but then he called me around 12 noon and said that he was on the way to pick me. So, I had to abandon my students earlier.
How did they perform? Most of them did at least 2 out of 4 questions. It is not compulsory for them to attempt all questions. The task was not easy. I don't have high expectations. They have done their best. Now, just wait for the results. The award presentation will be held in Genting on 17 January 2009.
