A sneak preview of Nafa Vibrancy

Update Log: Songs change to You Yi Dian Dong Xin By Jeff Chang.
                       ( The song I listen for the whole of last week. =P )

The singing session is perform by our class except the right person. =X 

Nafa vibrancy is a showcase of talent that each person had. The institution promote and encourage every student to show their talent and of course to make the whole institution more lively. So it not going to be just project and research everyday. =)

Not only that today evening, all the year 3 students have a dialogue with the Principal. Everyone get a clearer view about the career prospect and the salary for fresh-grad. We also get the chance to give our feed back what can be improve.

I miss the chance of bringing out to the principal about an issue which I feel affect all the level. Nayang academy is an Art institution and if any student who took up the course of visual communication, Multi-media and Fine Art too. We need to get design software like Photoshop, 3D-Max , Dreamweaver , Flash , Final-Cut Pro. In singapore, a student price for just 1 software cost $499 and plus plus which is way out of option for many students. 

So is there anyway the institution can get these software at special and affordable price for everyone? Many of the students are using pirated software. The worst part is that pirated software are known to contain bug. Some function not working which greatly affect the workflow. 

So if we are asked to use our personal work desk in internship. We are not using the original software although most of the employer do not ask about it. However there are people who are being question through interview which in turn make a drastic impression. Big Based company tend to be more attentive regarding this topic.

Nayang poly started visual communication course not long ago. So I get to know 2 of the students through a seminar. I was very surprised that they are offered $50 for a bundle of softwares. Photoshop, illustrator , Flash and just afew. It is not full package but it consist several important software throughout the 3 years of course.

There is an event host by a company which also sell a bundle of Adobe CS3 for only $97. I am not sure what are the software in the bundle. It only sell to primary school , secondary and NUS from what I heard from the staff. However you must produce your student pass and your particular. It is only valid for the student of the school or institution and MOE staff. 
There is a mislead information about original software being shared. When 2 person and above share one CD-key. It is no longer counted as original unless stated by the rules and regulation during the installation log. Yes, Adobe got the detail of particular for the specific Serial Number. However it will alright if you are not using for commercial purpose. =)
Some contest requirement do state that no pirated software is allowed.

Apparently , it is understandable that people around you do not believe in you in times. However , it is up to each individual choice. Time to rush my assessment!!! XD
