I thought I left design behind in Singapore after term 2, never thought I would meet my best friend design again, back with two more friends. Everybody, meet mini design in Chinese, design in Chinese and good old design. Wow, thought that design was hard, design in Chinese is a different level all together. Brainstorming in Chinese is so hard, ideas can’t exist if you do not have the words for it, technical terms in Chinese might as well be a different language all together. Feeling so helpless as I am grouped together with year 3 Chinese students in their design project, students with a solid 3 years of technical skills under their belt, while I struggle to understand what they are saying in the first place, let alone help them with their prototyping as they proceed to use techniques I have never seen before. Really want to post a screenshot of the many Wechat groups that sprouted up due to all these design projects, but shall not as it is not just my privacy involved. Here are some not so sensitive screenshots.

Thank the lords for Wechat translate function
Oops, maybe not enough

Stay tuned for more updates in 7 weeks time, if I am still alive…
