WEEKLY COMMENTS :
Thisweek I was able to learn and understood how to use Action Script to performcertain task in Adobe Flash CS5. Action Script was made easy by using the CodeSnippets. It was fun to watch every group’s animation as every group was onlygiven few days to complete the animation, and we all worked hard to perform ourbest to come out with a good quality animation. Zkey was very supportivethroughout these two weeks, and I managed to learn a lot from this course.
Thank you Zkey Sir, I had a great time in your class and certainly learned a lot. It was fun and educational. Look forward to attend your class again if there’s a chance. Hope you had a great time with us and also in Labuan =) 
Pictures were taken at the beach in front of the campus. Beautiful sunset from Labuan.
