Visiting Oxford was marked as a mojor thing to do in my stay in UK. Fortunately, I achieved this target yesterday. I joined a trip organised by Azlin, together with three other Malaysian students.
Although the main objective of this trip was to visit Blenheim Palace, which is located a few miles away from Oxford City Centre, I managed to taste the academic atmosphere of the university. A new target emerged after that: one day in the future, I will either have my sabbatical leave there or get a degree (perhaps after my retirement, preferrably in Philosophy) in University of Oxford. It is a dream now, but where there's a will, there's a way. Who dare to say I won't be able to realise my dream?
The person who led today's trip was Rizal. Rizal is doing his MBA at Warwick Business School. As an alumnus of University of Oxford, he introduced some of the magnificient colleges to us. Knowing him was a serendipity to me: Rizal is a lawyer, and he is also a boss of a game company (Mygo Solutions) in Malaysia. I agreed with him that currently there is no so-called 'game industry' in Malaysia. Most of the studios or companies are merely doing outsourcing jobs, obtained from oversea studios. If I manage to obtain my PhD in game-based learning, there will be a grand platform for me to realise my 20 years game-based learning master plan. Interested to know what's my plan? I will make it official via my sponsor in year 2011.
Perhaps, I should work harder now...
