Entered to Kyungpook National University (KNU)

About a week ago I left my country and my work place and moved to a new place to start another chapter of my life. Now I'm a graduate student at Kyungpook National University (KNU) in Daegu city, South Korea. I will be staying here several years until I complete my masters and doctoral studies.

I arrived in the beginning of the Spring season and therefore it's still cold everywhere. There are some Sri Lankan students who are studying here including a past student of University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC). Their existence made my life easier since they knew all the necessary things  to survive here before I arrive.

I'm staying in a dormitory of KNU and therefore it's much easier to carry on my work. Dormitory has all the facilities and it's very comfortable. The three meals for a day is provided by the dormitory cafeteria. I'm working with Professor Dongkyun Kim and he is my academic adviser. He is leading the Wireless & Mobile Internet Laboratory (MoNet) in the department of computer science and engineering where I'm involved with his research work. The other members of the MoNet lab includes some graduate students from Korea and also Pakistan. All of them are so friendly to me.

By any mean KNU is a beautiful university. It is so huge and has almost all the components of a university such as medical, engineering, humanities, etc. Still I got only few chances to go around the university. There are so many things to explore. Until this article all the previous articles I've written are don while staying in Sri Lanka. But from now on I will be writing about various things from here in my new place.
