A little bit about myself

Hellow everyone! My name is Riyan, a Singaporean undergraduate student in National University of Singapore. I am currently studying in Year 2 under Life Science major. Hopefully, one day I would end up working for a government sector, maybe the AVA (Agri-food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore)or the Singapore Wildlife Reserves.

I am a guy who likes to face my computer, and does internet surfing or computer gaming as my favourite pastimes. Some will say that I am quite a nerd to be staring at my computer all day, but honestly, I do not care how others feel about my favourite hobbies. My favourite games are the PC RTS (real-time strategy) games, especially the Command and Conquer series and the Starcraft series.

Besides gaming and net surfing, I also enjoy studying, especially on the topics that interest me the most. One of them is zoology. I have studied a lot about animals and zoology from books, magazines, and even newspaper articles, although mostly is actually from documentary aired in Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Channel. Besides zoology, another one of my most interested topic is paleontology, the study of prehistoric life, such as dinosaurs.

Due to my preference in studies, the type of movies that I enjoy the most are the monster movie genres. My favourite type of television programs are all documentaries, and occasionally sports events such as World Cup and Olympic Games. I do not listen to music much, since I am not such an artistic person, but I do enjoy listening to some musics of any genres that I find pleasant to listen.

Truth to be told, the main reason why I start this blog is because it is essential for my ES2007S: Professional Communication module. In this module, it is a must for me to post an article about the topics covered throughout the course. Still, I will consider continue blogging even after the course has ended.

This is all I have to say about myself. Thank you for visiting!

PS: Occasionally, I do write fan fictions for fun. I am now writing a fan fiction story (a crossover between Command &Conquer and Starcraft). If you are interested, you may like to take a peek if you want:
