    Soooo confident and prepared for the evening, Ting. I’m very proud of your work ahead of time, and the way in which it was delivered tonight in class. I LOVE your always clever, creative use of visuals. Very relaxed presentation with all the info & and background research. I wish you could present again on another topic. It was that good! No surprise though.

      SWEET Thor!!!

      You are so nice to post this comment to me. I’m totally inspired. Yes, I do love the pictures I chose, because I do love this smart idea of simplicity.

      But I would say I was still frustrated not able to present without my notes…every time I promise myself to prepare earlier so as to free myself out of the note and 100% into the interaction with you guys just like I present in my own language, but my procrastination always result in such situation!!!!

      I so appreciate your feedback which give me great confidence and I really expect another presentation in front of you, are we going to have any classes in common?
