UNIMAS Convocation of Post-Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (27th Jan 2012)

The convocation was held in Hilton Hotel Kuching on the 27th Jan 2012.

The first question you may ask is... what is PgDip?

Post-Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (PGDip) programme is an internal staff development programme specifically designed for its newly hired academics and junior lecturers who have just returned from their graduate studies. The programme is designed as a professional development initiative to continuously retool and reskill young academics with knowledge and skills about Teaching at Higher Education, especially in the area of pedagogy and instructional technology (Click here for more information).

ISITI UNIMAS Writing Retreat at Damaipuri Resort, Kuching (3rd - 5th Feb 2012)

It was a writing retreat for the research group on the Orang Asli Telecenter project and the main purpose is to gather everyone in order to produce and compile a final report of the research project.

The 3-day writing retreat was held at Damaipuri Resort & Spa, Kuching but i missed the 1st day as i have to bring my baby to get her 2nd vaccine. Thus, i joined the group from the 2nd day onwards and below are the photos taken by me using Samsung Galaxy Note.

This is the lobby of the resort and the sea is just behind the registration counter.  

Enjoying the nice view while walking towards my room after checking in...

The view from my room. I love the scene so much as it makes me feel very relaxing and just wanna sit back and relax. Unfortunately, i have to leave the room as soon as possible to join my group for the report writing.  

A panorama view from my room. The good thing of Samsung Galaxy Note is that it has a function called Panorama in the shooting mode. Just choose it and swipe the phone horizontally, it will stitch the photos together and create a panorama photo.  

Another panorama photo in the next morning. 

The room. One thing they can improve is to kill off all the tiny ants as there are some marching in the room... i hate ants... Other than that its fine. 

After the swim. The swimming pool is big and the view is really nice as the pool is just located next to the sea...

Sunset at the pool side...
