Day 5 @ Palo Alto
Today was the last day in Palo Alto. 🙁
This was just like a dream, “One week in Palo Alto”. This was definitely one of the highlights in my life. If possible, I would participate the contest for this year or next year.
In the morning, we did some preparations for final presentation in the afternoon. There were always arguements and disagreements which I am already used to it now. It is actually a good thing because arguements and disagreements are inevitable when it comes to groupwork. But it is through the arguements and disagreements that we learn more, we discover our mistakes, come up with improvements and we learn to also compromise with one another.
At noon, we had a ceremony. All of us went up to the stage and took the prize from SAP for winning the Global Connected Car Contest 2012. Wow~~ this is a “sehr gut” feeling. 😉
In the afternoon, two of our teammates did a very good presentation to some VC. It went great. After the presentation and review for the week, we ended today with going shopping, chilling, and drank a bit at the hotel. Random thought – *German is so good at opening beer bottle. They can use anything and everything to open it. COOL.*
Tomorrow, we are going to San Francisco. I am really looking forward to it~
I was so inspired by the whole trip, honestly. Previously, I thought, living in Singapore with a good job would be enough. While, after being with those talents from around the world, my plan for the future will most probably change. I would love to go beyond of my comfort zone and take challenges. There are so much fun out there and there are new things to learn and experience. So maybe… to my German friends, see you in 2014 ~
