The trip to Dubai was actually really awesome. I got invited to present some work at the event so it was extremely tiring but overall a really good experience to get some feedback on my work as well as to meet new people and see new things.
Deserts, technically one of the oldest things, but super new for me.
I really want to go more into depth on my experience there, but I don't think this blog is appropriate for that anymore. For the past few years I've essentially been using this blog as a weekly diary for the things I do when I'm abroad.
That's fine and all, but I wanna write in a different style and it doesn't seem like that would fit here anymore. So I've decided that I wanna start a new blog. I'll keep this one going for weekly entries, but I'll have a "cleaner" blog that will be posting more in depth stuff.
It'll finally let me dive into more detail into events too.
For that blog, I'll be using my own domain. It'll be at blog.garykcng.com which is currently super under construction. But when I have posts, they'll be there. I'll try to get a few posts in there soon about Dubai and I might even do some retroactive posts about my previous travels too.
I essentially see it as less of a diary and more of a real blog. So I'll talk about my travels, events, life, etc. But I'll do posts less frequently as compared to this and just go more into detail since I've been glossing over details sometimes on this blog. Should be a fun way to write I think.
More fun than carrying fish onto trains.
Anyways, since I just got back from Dubai, that project is pretty much over for now. There was a lot of positive feedback so I might go back to it sometime, but right now I have to focus on my thesis project and lab project.
