When the SPM results were out, like others, I had to make another decision. Popular choices amongst my schoolmates from the science stream at that time were to become medical doctors. I was like 50-50. I was not that eager to become a doctor. And I certainly did not want to be part of something just because it was popular and famous.
The other obvious choice was engineering. I chose chemical engineering because it sounded more feminine to me. Next, I applied for an A-Level sposorship, hoping for a chance to study overseas. That was the time when one of my uncles told me about the job prospect of a chemical engineer, which was not very good at that time. Reality hit. He suggested that I pursue computer science course instead.
Well, I spent two years in the science stream. I could have just continued into the art stream
