3point8 4444 v2


Someone actually commented that the 3POINT8 4444 is funny....
That's something new!!!
Well, can't say that i ain't glad to hear about it. In fact, i'm thrilled by it!!! (Thanks Julie!!!)
U know, everyone has their own ego, and i'm sure that practically anyone would be delighted when someone compliment on their creation, their ego...

So, the question is: Why did i name my blog 3POINT8 4444??
You have probably read this tagline at the top of my blog...


I really believe that the past describes a person. For example, if a person was once a president of a club, most likely he would be perceived as someone who has leadership skill. Thus someone might describe that person as a leader.
And i really believe that the future defines a person. By future, i actually meant the ambition, goals, and believes of a person. For example, if that someone has a burning desire to be the most handsome guy, he would hunt for the latest trend of clothing, the most fashionable hairstye, the best cosmetic product, and learn the most suitable body language to project his 'handsome-ness'. Thus his actions and his thoughts would dictate the person he would be in the future. We become what we believe in.

3POINT was my past...Back then in TARC, I earned the nickname of 3.8
For that period of 2years, my CGPA throughout those 6 semesters were roughly around 3.8. So, people start to address me as 3.8. Can say that i was quite proud of that nickname. Probably because it represents the standard of my intellectual level. But of course, i wouldn't have done it without my friends... I really appreciate those who had lend me their notes, those who have tutored me, those who have ask me questions, even those who have annoyed me during exam period... Without them, i probably wouldn't be in UNSW,australia now....

4444 is my future... The number 4 is a number of completeness, with a beginning and an end.
Many of the cycles that we know of, have four components. [The 4 elements: Earth, wind, fire and water] [The 4 stages of apocalypse :war, plague, famine and death] [The 4 quadrant of cartesian coordinates]
I have no idea why, but since young, i've been obsessed with the no.4. I tried to relate everything wih the no.4. Even until now!
Everytime i eat a cookie, i would make sure that i will take exactly 4 bites to finish it!
The no.4 has been deeply implanted into my mind. I will still continue to relate everything with the no.4. So, I guess thats the future for me.
