Still remember Kak Lin my ex-colleague who's pursuing her PhD in Cambridge? She was back her a few days ago, and will be going off tomorrow. And yes, Abg John (Kak Lin's supervisor and mentor) was here too.
They were actually on their way to Hong Kong for conference and meeting, and dropped by in Malaysia. So sweet of them of drop by at our office and say hi.
They visited us in the name of friendship, and collaboration in research of course. Now that Kak Lin is not attached to any institution, she will be able to choose which one she want to join when she got back. The thing is, the institution I'm working with now don't even appreciate and value such talent. Many good people with great potential and ability were marginilized, and had left. Hm..... I might do the same.
