Har Jeong Kai Burger, Korean Burger??

Ordered a Har Jeong Kai Burger thinking it's Korean food. But turn out to be 虾酱鸡 Burger...

The Har Jeong Kai Burger is too salty for my liking, but the Cha-Siu Burger taste not bad.
The flavoured fries also not bad. But I think it gets soggy a little too quickly. Maybe that's a sign it is not those McD-style over-processed fries. But for a restaurant who uses fries as its signature dish, it definitely need some more improvements.
But for guys out there, there are a lot of eye-candies. The fast food restaurant is fully-manned by friendly 年轻美眉. =)

All in all, it is not the type of restaurant that I will go for a second time in the near future, but it's not bad for a first try when you run out of places to eat in this little red dot.

An llustrated Guide to a Ph.D.

A few pictures say it all
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Imagine a circle that contains all of human knowledge:

By the time you finish elementary school, you know a little:

By the time you finish high school, you know a bit more:

With a bachelor's degree, you gain a specialty:

A master's degree deepens that specialty:

Reading research papers takes you to the edge of human knowledge:

Once you're at the boundary, you focus:

You push at the boundary for a few years:

Until one day, the boundary gives way:

And, that dent you've made is called a Ph.D.:

Of course, the world looks different to you now:

So, don't forget the bigger picture:


Keep pushing.
