SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 落幕了快 20 天,搭上了一篇 Technical Briefs 的順風車,去了一趟新加坡。

新坡加,是個中文、英文、馬來文與坦米爾文為官方語言的國家。 都市的建築、行人走路的速度、多國語言的交談聲、金融機構的發達程度 以及大量的外商林立,她是個比台北城來得發達與先進的地方, 我是這麼認為的吧。

上台演講,還是會緊張吶~~不過看著前幾天,隨行的實驗室同學的排練,就突然覺得很輕鬆了。 年輕真好,有緊張出糗的權力;年長更好,變得什麼事都可以悠然自在以對了。 I still have a dream, to present a technical paper, a full paper, with good quality and presentation skill, in SIGGRAPH.

據說,這個 The Fullerton Hotel 的前身是個郵局,讓我想起阿里山的郵局。 下次,很不幸得再來新加坡的話,我想要住這 XD

新加坡的美食,我印象最深刻的就是肉骨茶了。 清湯拌著胡椒味、滿滿都是肉的肋骨,吃起來過癮極了! 一吃就上癮! 奕超加點的肥腸怎麼可以這麼好吃! 油條混進湯裏,怎麼可以這麼美味! Oh my~

給還待在校園,汲汲努力於玩樂、享受大學青春的台灣學生們,多花點時間看看世界, 不管是以發表論文的方式,或是出國比賽,或甚至是來個沙發客行,鐵定會影響你一輩子的。 上頭照片的這位外國小朋友 Etan (well, 同行的,除了幾位老師,我想不到有誰比我更年長的了 XD), 第一次來到亞洲,年紀與我第一次出國飛往美國相仿,但他可不只是單純的出國玩喔! 他負責發表一篇 Technical Briefs: Efficient rasterization for edge-based 3d object tracking on mobile devices。 That’s what I think one of the best ways to travel around the world, showing some your work, fooling around the city and meeting some new friends.

The last surprise while we flew back to Taiwan. We met Engels, a retired director of German Wines Ltd. No one knows what happened to this row of three seats, we just kept gossiping things with surprise, laugh and insipration. Actually, Howie and I didn’t know how come that happened to us, either. Howie just played Cytus while I just paied attention to a story of the 1st computer in the world. And that led to lots of following chatting~

You never know what’s gonna happen to your journey. Just like what we did. We just talked in our home-made (or even home-brewed) English, and that was enough to work!
