A new beginning
(I'm sorry everyone... this entry was written halfway on Monday night but did not have the time to finish it before I headed back to my dorm!)
Got my visa on Friday morning at Kuala Lumpur then airticket in the afternoon, flew back to Kota Kinabalu at night.
I spent all of Saturday morning printing my coach ticket, maps, enrolment cert. etc etc and only started packing 3 hours before the flight. As a result of all that last arrangements, I forgot to bring my laptop charger, hence; will have to wait for a couple of days before the charger arrives. Can't wait til I can do my work comfortably in my room.
I arrived Heathrow Airport on a Sunday morning, hopped on2 d bus, and arrived Coventry 2 hrs later. I am so lucky to have Crystal, my coursemate, living right next door. She took me around, I unpacked, and hibernated from 8pm-7am (fyi, I don't usually sleep that longg..haha)
My first day at Warwick today, I discovered that I have a lot to catch up on. 1st day of class, 6 mini projects. WOW. I thought I have time to get some necessities at Tesco's but I don't think thats going to happen. Its 9pm and our group is still working on our first mini project. Haha... Not that intense because I have very nice and funny group mates. Helpful too! Apart from that, I found the video about Deming quite fascinating... especially the demonstration on the white & red beans... Yes he did say that it is the management's fault for not providing the correct equipments... Nobody likes to be blamed... and usually managements put the blame on workers for not being able to achieve a given target....
After class, our team headed to the grid for discussions. Alan & I did our part on EFQM, and he finished real q-u-i-c-k! This EFQM framework is of relation to the topic of quality. The first thing that came to my mind was TQM that I studied during my undergrad degree at Northumbria U..... and EFQM was something new to me... Throughout the whole night of reading and trying to answer questions... I found that my groupmates each have their own unique skill in which I have to learn... I have to admit that I lack of analytical skills... Perhaps it is due to way I was brought up and the schooling system ( obedience = listening to parents & teachers).... oh well... I have a LOT to learn!!
