During the spring of 2007, I took a class on Science Writing as part of the requirements for my MSc. Ni kira kes paksa-rela la. If I was given a chance at that time, memang tak akan pandang sebelah mata langsung subjek ni, huhu…

Needless to say, I was struggling at first, seriesly . Terasa macam nak drop the class pun ada :(. But with the continuous help and advice from Prof Odell, after a few weeks, I managed to get hold of myself and starting to enjoy the class more and more.
