Balik Kg!!!!

Tomorrow would be my homecoming and I'm quite excited right now. As I could remember, the last time I was being in my home sweets home was during Aidil Adha and it's more than a month now. I'm going to pursuit my bag pack...

Afternoon, as I realized my bike (my official transport since ages and still on that way for a few years ahead) isn't in the well condition, I went to workshop for minor adjustment and repairs. I can feel all irritating sounds whenever I pull over the throttle as I'm the regular rider, maybe some of my friends are unable to spot the different yet I do. The soar of the sound make my ears unpleasant, indeed.

I like purple

What the hell in the world is going on around this college? Why it's so hard to find some food nowadays? I mean in this college area only, Mantin area has a different issue. Well, I don't ask for something exotics or traditional dishes or old school foods or expensive menus that hardly to find, I just want a common dishes that can be easily found in any restaurant or stalls like before.

Yeah I know, last Friday was a Christmas and most of the students managed for their homecoming - three days in a row off from classes, which bastard didn't want to go back? For businessman especially for those who earn their livelihood by depending on students money (students bought some commodities by them especially foods), automatically they feel the bad consequences.

Unfortunately, those sellers or that so called as food's entrepreneur decided to close up the stall and restaurant. If you could be on the scene, it seems that this place is deserted. What a wise movement they do? Only Shahirah manages to run their business but only chicken rice is available. As conclusion, two days in a row, I didn't find a common food that I always took to stuff in my tummy. The digestion system would be freaking out right now.

The taste is heaven while the absence of the rice

Does money play hide and seek?....

Okay, I was looking for my money since a few days back and finally I found it hidden in a chink inside my old notes this evening. I knew it since the beginning, the cash is in somewhere but I've no clue where I keep them.

Last month, my mom handed over an amount of cash to me. So I managed to use a minor amount of it and I kept the rest in somewhere (I don't keep yet I hide them). After quite sometimes, I want to take another amount as I was broke after all kinds of expenditure. Since that moment, I aware I was losing that money and I start to panic. I try to recall in so many times but everything is pointless. Problem solved after I ransacked every single part that has a very high possibilities and high anticipation.

Moral of the story: make sure you recognize very well the place you choose to keep anything that you think is worthy or something that valuable for you. Losing something because of your own mistake would be the biggest regret in your entire life.

Is that enough to grab a new BMW ???

Karaoke-ing....

This entry is the continuity of the previous post as we not ended the night yet. After we celebrated a farewell party, we send back Dr Fathoni and his son to their apartment. So do with some friends, they were unable to join as their final report is not done yet.

The next plan was to go for karaoke-ing at somewhere in Nilai as it still early and the time is way far from the midnight. We were moving by two cars and 7 persons altogether.

As everyone knows, I'm not a good singer and whenever I start singing and heard my own voice, it's always irritating me. I can't get along with it. Well, I don't have this type of talent even all of them keep supporting me. It takes me a while to warm up, maybe I have to practice more and get myself in the mood so that I could adapt my own creepy voice..hahahah..... It's completely sucks ok!!!

When I was sleepy


I wasn't singing, I read poem

I was very passionate


superstars - to - be

Dr Fathoni - u'll be remembered...

We organized a simple farewell party for our beloved lecturer at Semenyih due to his resignation at the end of this year (the only strategic location we could found as he's not feeling well at that time). The person that I'm talking about is Dr. Fathoni Usman and he is the good lecturer I could say.

Seem that this college has lost another quality and very knowledgeable lecturer that rarely to find. The impact is not goes to the management but the students that he has educated since his first day in here. For our class, Dr Fathoni is likely a good supporter, he impetus us in almost everything, always willing to help in any condition and situation even it's not related with the subject he has assigned for. Sometimes it has nothing to do and slightly different from his jurisdiction.

In the other side, he is so friendly with his students likewise with our batch, we are closed together, not only just like lecturer - students bonding yet even more than that. We could feel the enormous different when he has no longer with us later as he moves to UNITEN - He'll continue his career but at the different workplace and different surrounding as well.

Dear Dr Fathoni, I wish you very good success for the future ahead. If you have a dream, fight for it. Good luck Dr.

Dr. Fathoni and his super cute son, Yusoff Abdullah


After we took the dine


A souvenir from my class members special for the imminent resigned lecturer-to-be

MARA's 30% discount - a misconception..

The next day after I had a very good fun in Melaka, we had planned to go to MARA in KL - to clear cut something that related with the scholarship they have funded towards our course's fee and it is very important.

I came along with my classmates (mostly similar persons who had traveled with me to Melaka yesterday) and they also have an affair with this particular organization. In some part, we got a similar problem and the rest is absolutely different case. A few things have been issued by me to the person's in charged - with help by the officer, everything is solved now except one particular case.

Since the past couple of months, MARA has funded me including my monthly expenditure. It is very convenient and the only privilege and benefited for those who have signed a contract with this organization. Unfortunately for the monthly expenditure they provide, the fund comes in a check sheet formation, So I need to liquefy the check first before the amount of the cash can be used to buy something. So, my sole purpose is to appeal with them to change the monthly check system to directly bank-in to my account so that I won't waste much time to go to the bank again.

My father asked me to confront with MARA as he has figured out the advertisement regarding the discount they offer for those who want to pay the MARA's advance (I wrote MARA's advance here, not MARA's loan....mind you!). Initially, I thought it was 30 percent discount from the exact amount that we have borrowed. Well, finally I found my judgment is all wrong. They will give that 30 percent discount from the balance that still unpaid. Meaning, in case you have borrowed Rm 1500 and you already paid Rm 900. So, you still have to pay another Rm 600 isn't it? (before the 30 percent discount is applied). So the 30 percent discount goes to Rm 600 that u still owed. So, the total 30 percent from Rm 600 will be deducted and you have to pay Rm 420 only.

I dumbfounded once the officer told me and quite shock with the system they implement. It makes every single student fall into the confusion just like me. Plus, it's benefited for those who still have a big amount of debt and completely unfair for those who paid almost the total amount.

Trip to A Famosa - I enjoy this pretty well...

This is a very long post as I got a lot of story to share with. Feel like I have been injected with enthusiasm of writing lately. This post might be have a sequel - to write everything in just an attempt is absolutely impossible....

within 48 hours just right after the exam was officially to declare it's over, I got so many unforgettable memories (I wish) and experienced a very great joy in my entire life until I'm temporarily forget about my studies and other problem-related. No problems come at all, everything is fade away down into the drain - I just feel the real diversion from the real world.

I'm going to summarize a series of these fortunate moments I had since yesterday (we spend almost an entire day in Melaka) and I'm glad to say that the day was full of joy. I wish I can turn on this feeling whenever I'm trapped or stuck in difficulties. Well, it just a piece of hope and totally absurd to become real. Everyone knows that :) The chronology of moments is shown in a numerical format as follow:

  1. We were departed from college to Melaka by a car, pack for 5 persons (Gua, Syuk, Yana, Rasyid and Yusoff anak Dr Fathoni) around 10 a.m, having a brunch at Mantin before we moved.
  2. Afiq and Odah were joining us but they came straight away from their home (as their home is located nearby from A Famosa Resort). They brought along their siblings for more excitement.
  3. Unexpected problem arose - the ticket price is Rm 40 ringgit and it's slightly different with the price they have advertised in the net. We had check the price in their official website before we come out with this plan, it just Rm 20 for each person.
  4. To clear the confusion - we went to the counter for further explanation. Okay, I don't know whether they make profit by fraud or we just can't understand the statement they advertised on the net - "For those who are staying or renting in this resort, they'll be given discounts almost 50 percent from the origin ticket price" - that's what the person in charged told us.
  5. We fine with that and we could accept the reason of the price is slightly different from what we checked in the internet. But now, most of us didn't bring loads of cash (as we tough the ticket is cheap and I never think to withdraw any cent from ATM).
  6. We accumulated every single cents we had and start to count all of them - Obviously, the total amount was adequately to accommodate for 5 persons. That's enough to keep us moving forward.
  7. We thought this place isn't crowded as the day wasn't a public holiday (even the suspicious mind told me it still the school's holiday). That's why we chose Wednesday in the first place. Unfortunately, it's getting crowded from an hour to another.
  8. So, we still stand a chance to try all the thrilled and adventurous sliding games available yet we had to wait for the turn. There were a lot of people and we had to be in the queue line. Patient always comes in the first place and highly considered.
  9. We spent almost 4 or 5 hours, I'm not sure as none of us wore a watch except Raudah's little sister and we never think to check the time as we were excited with the water.
  10. The dark cloud crawly covered the atmosphere - given a clear sign for the rain to come down - we decided to leave before the rain comes.
  11. The next plan is to go to Raudah's for sending her back and at the same time to visit her family members as well. But the main agenda is different - to ensure Raudah is able to follow us back to college and convince her parents that we got something important to look after in the next day. Furthermore, her parents aren't allowed her to drive during the night time without companion.
  12. We reached at the college area at 10 after a few minutes time of driving - managed to have a light supper before we took off to our apartment. Without hesitation, I felt asleep once I laid down on the comfortable mattress. Tomorrow, another plan is ready for us, we are going to KL!!!!
Still, even I through so many unforgettable memories, there are a few things that sometimes would be pissed me off if I keep thinking about it. Just want you to ponder about the things that are written below:
  1. This is the school's break season and sure there will be a lot of parents come along with their children, purposely to have some fun, but everything is expensive and for some particular service, they increase the fee by double the price. It doesn't matter for those who come from the wealth family.
  2. To keep our luggage or stuff safe, we have no option except to rent a locker. We need to buy a token depends on the size of the locker we want. This special token is valid for one time only and you can't regain it back once you insert the token on its slot. Meaning, when you unlock your locker, you can't lock it back until you buy a new token.
WTF is that!!!..See how they run the business here. The way they make profit is ridiculously stupid and can't be acceptable!...

Pictures for you to enjoy:

excitement moment

It has been planned since before the exam took place that a few classmates of mine and I agreed to manage a few events before we moving back to hometown. One of the events is to have a great time in Melaka or more specifically in A Famosa Resort..... It would be a very convenient trip.

Now, the moment is approaching and in less than an hour, we'll be moving to Melaka as a symbol of celebration for us after we have succeeded through a very hard semester (even the paper is not marking yet and the result hasn't been revealed). This is just another way how we release our tension. We just want to have fun together before everyone away to their hometown for holiday. Hopefully everything will go smoothly.

Unfortunately, a few members are unable to join and make their self not available. But the plan need to proceed as scheduled no matter what it takes. I'm quite excited and just can't wait to have a go....

an update!

It has been a while since a few busy weeks back for this blog has lost my attention. During the time range, my hands were full with many tasks need to be done mostly for assignment and presentation.

Literally, this semester is quite tough and I never expect that it would become on this way. Compare with the previous semester, I'm very frustrated with all three subjects that I ran and the worst part is, it happen because of my own time management. Everything was not following the time schedule and I experience the aftermath at this moment.

I just want to change the subject rather than to channelize the blame on myself after everything happen. Finally, the worst semester is over and I only have at least 3 weeks holiday before the new semester is reopened.

Yet, it doesn't mean I could enjoy every bit of the time. I still have a final project need to run and it takes a year to accomplish. It has started since last September and right now I'm still working on it. It has progressed drastically and that is the only reason I have top put back my focus in this final project.

Even the exam is over, I don't feel happy at all. I still worry about my result once it comes out later. To be frank, I didn't do well during the exam, there is not enough time to do the revision even the question has been revealed.

What? how come I couldn't score in final exam. For both subjects I took, I know every single question on the exam paper yet unable to answer all the questions properly. I just commit a real big mistake as I let the chance to go away. I'm really disappointed over myself. Very - very disappointed!!!!

Why am I deadly busy???~ discover~

Well I'm still busy with structural project and still many things need to be done. The due date is supposed in the early December but it has rescheduled and changes the date. This problem emerges due to one particular reason - the resignation of the related lecturer at the end of November. It so obvious the time range is getting concise after the lecturer insists us to complete everything before his departed.

Okay, that's the main thing. Another issue that suppose to take attention is - we are scheduled to finish our semester in the mid December or over after we enrolled this semester back in the early September, During the time range (September - December), it's required us to come to the class efficiently without miss any to ensure out credit hour must be 8 - 9 hours per subject in a week (presently, I'm running for 3 subjects). So, to reach the total credit hour and relate to the current case of my resigned lecturer - to - be (which will be affected soon), we as the unfortunate victim have to take the extremely enormous consequences.

To cover up back all the credit hour for next month (December), The lecturer has made decision to accumulate all the December's credit hour and replace them in any free lecture's slots that might be available in the month of November (Those hours will be divided based on the time available in our schedule from Monday to Friday). By doing this, all my free class time from Monday to Friday will be filled up by structural class and make my day to full of lessons, mostly structural subject.

Hence, I'm suffering by the largest burden on my shoulders that I never ever ask for, fighting and striving for my blurry future.

Desire?

It's natural for us to not easily get the satisfaction of anything that we have owned. We always crying for more and wish if we could have something beyond what we already have today. It's not because we are not grateful upon the god's rewards but we as a human being never miss to think about the mundane affair. We always try to improve our daily social life and wants it to become better and better. Unfortunately, we never realize our desire sometimes could ruin our life without warning.

Like any other people, I also have such problem in controlling and managing my desire. There's no fullstops or any specific border available to prevent me from keep spending the cash. Everyday I met different people with different stunning equipments or gadgets on their hands which they could cling with all the time. Well, I won't let myself to succumb with such things and the best way how I can avoid them is to spill those desires in here. Hopefully, it could help me in reducing this kind of feeling.

hv u done this before?

Do you ever know or realize or even experience that how people sometimes is pretending to be intently browsing their phone, pretend to make a phone call or typing SMS to avoid a certain social situations? Especially when it's an awkward social situation likes sitting alone in a crowded LRT or anywhere else. While you are waiting for your turn at the bank and a weird stranger is sitting next to you. When you are walking and passing by a certain person you don't like but you want to avoid from looking at their face by pretending to look busy?

I'm sure everyone has done it before. Isn't it? It just a lie for those who doesn't wants to admit. This is a normal phenomenon amongst the people around the globe. We are just human being and GOD has created us along with this attribute. Nowadays, as the technology in communication and computer's gadget has become the very rapid development, somehow it has ruined down the human relation. It makes us not so friendly with the strangers around us, we don't rely on the people's existences and abilities anymore like what we did before the technology era influenced us. Now, we just need to do a few taps on the phone's screen and we'll get everything we want. Usually, all required data will be shown in a simple way yet could be easily understood by the users. This phenomenon is called as HANDPHONE-ITIS

~Okay, class will be started in 10 minutes time, gotta run now~

my bro is fully restored

It's Saturday again and I have no idea why, I could feel the time traveled more faster than it should be - with a lot of works still left undone that makes the things didn't get any better - I keep delaying my project and still don't get any intention to proceed even it just a bit - I can feel the pressure growth on me yet, I don't get any plan to start my first leap. Hope something could spur me up soon.

For introduction ...

A year ago, he involved in a very terrific crashed while he was heading back to home from JB in the dawn time. He was riding his bike at the sideline of PLUS highway, and suddenly a drunk/sleepy driver unable to control his speeding car. He hit the highway's divider and bounces straight to my brother in just a few milliseconds time. There's nothing my brother could do at the moment and that was a very poor thing that happened to him. He has been through the very hard time since then and endure every bit of it triumphantly. Luckily, it just a temporary disabilities and he never succumb to any challenge along the healing time.

and now....

My younger brother had been hospitalized on last Wednesday in order to get further treatment of his broken leg. He used to follow up the medical checkup and medicine regarding to his broken leg in so many times before. But this time, it's slightly different. After almost a year he used the crutches for walking and support, now it's time for the era to end - He was undergoing a surgery to take off the steel which is used to support his leg's bone for all these while. I hope that he will be recovered and walk again soon.

He didn't do anything wrong - he was in the right lane and was riding with the constant speed limit yet he suffered for other people's faults and wrongdoings. This is the real life after all. Well, we couldn't predict any incoming harm upon us and the only thing that we could do is just to be extra careful.

Structure strikes in my nerves...part 003

And now, I'm undergoing my degree and still, the same problem is sticking with me. Structure all the time takes my attention - in order to torture the peaceful soul and harmony inner of my own. Now, let see what do I need to do to satisfy my crazy structure's lecture in order to fulfill all his requirement:
  1. I need to come out with design of new building that never exist even it so obvious that I am not an architecture student - I'm civil engineers to be and all I do is just calculate the loads and design the loads, not design a building. He asked me to produce related sheets in very little time.
  2. I struggle for the drawing and passed over him - I'm strongly believed he didn't check the drawing until now as he didn't utter any single word.
  3. We need to come out with a full report that contains 5 or 6 chapters inside. So, we have to submit each chapter gradually before it can form and bind together as a full report - the problem is, I submit chapter 1 for the lecture to inspect whether the project can be proceed or declined, unfortunately he never gives any feedback.
  4. Things become annoyed when he asked me to proceed chapter two and three. I don't have any clue to proceed until he gives his comment or any related suggestion and recommendation. Common, please mark up your mind Mister.
  5. In order to settle up all kinds of structure things, consequently I was absent both of my final project classes.

Structure strikes in my nerves...part 002

Previous paragraphs are not the main issues why I'm able to spend my little time for blogging here. It just a warm up before I go further to the main issues and emphasize them. Lately, structure has tortured my nerves very brutally compare with another two subjects that I'm currently take. I'll list down a few things that force me to dedicate utmost my time to STRUCTURE rather than anything in the world and become a workhorse. You can read them by your own and you can ponder by yourself straight away once you finish your reading.
  1. Since I was undergoing my HND, Structure never went away from me. It got full attention and keeps coming from a semester to another.
  2. Structure always becomes a nightmare for every civil students until every time we utter out a word of "structure" from the mouth, everyone will follow by saying "susahnye structure"
  3. Even for those who loves number very much, will facing the very mighty complication in doing all structure tasks.
  4. Every time the assignment brief of structure is about to release out, everyone would be friend with lecturer or to the person who they think is brilliant in structure.
  5. We never done all structure assignment by our own, we do plagiarism very often. We got apiece solution from different people. So do with other students.

Structure strikes in my nerves...part 001

I would like to dedicate this first paragraph to congratulate and to show some appreciation for the new installation of the new Negeri Sembilan's monarch which is recently affected. Tuanku Muhriz Tuanku Munawir has been chosen as a new Yang Dipetuan Besar (great King) of Negeri Sembilan, succeeding his late uncle Tuanku Jaafar Tuanku Abdul Rahman. The installation of this new ruler would be the 11th constitutional sovereign king of negeri Sembilan monarchy.

Due to the installation ceremony recently, the entire state of Negeri Sembilan which is under the territory and ruled by its sovereign are having an officially a day off today. It turns to something a little bit better after my college is a part of the territory. To make my day more interesting, I have at least 4 days off from any lectures and classes since last Friday.

TIDBITS

Okay, I'll try to recap my last few days in this post before I knock myself out on the bed again - today is Saturday and its breezing morning - why should I waste this dandy moment after I'm craving for it all this while? Sleep is the best part for now before I got to hand over all my projects soon.

  1. Last two weeks were full with joy and excitement, my classmates and I organized for a movie trip after a long time - as we busy with projects and long semester break. We didn't get our footsteps together on cinema since the last 5 or 6 months. So we were in line and pick a movie with title "papadom" as our target to strike. This movie is absolutely fantastic and we enjoyed the whole scene. It's valued for money.
  2. Later, at the same night, we celebrated Afiq and Zuera's birthday altogether even they were not born in the same date - unfortunately zuera unable to participate as she ran away from us - she was suspecting us to celebrate her in the different way with stuff like tepung dan telur - it makes sense why she ran away. The party is just simple - the flow is more to show how we appreciate our friends. I wish them great success and happiness for the year ahead.
  3. Last Thursday, I went back to my hometown after a month - I predict in the next two months would be the busiest ever for me to manage all projects and there's no chance for homecoming - will be missing my homeland badly.
  4. My uncle organizes an open house last week and coincidentally crash with my homecoming. So, I could enjoy all foods before Shawal move away and it was the last open house I attended. Will looking forward in the next Raya.
  5. As Monday came over, my hands were full with tasks and exercises need to be done. From that day until yesterday, the tension has kicked in my head - I didn't sleep well, I didn't get myself well-prepared.
So today I decide to enjoy all moments to the fullest and I wish it somehow could mitigate the stress that overwhelmed me.

takraw tourney

Since the last 2 weeks, It was an inter-school sport weekend organized by this fucking college, so I participated one particular game where I think I'm best on it. Takraw tourney had take my interest and the regulation is quite nonsense - Team must be set up based on school i.e civil, mecha, archi etc. To find 3 players per team with the same course is totally absurd. Not many students prefer in takraw rather than any other game. Obviously in every evening, to have 2 teams needs a lot of errands.

Okay, I was illegally in the mechanical school team - Civil school doesn't have skilled player in takraw except me indeed - On the first day, 6 teams were registered unfortunately, only a few teams could make themselves on the court. So we were looking forward on the second day and the situation became worst - more teams and individual unable to attend and support, only 3 teams left to continue this tournament until the end and we altogether were strive for the victory. We were looking for the next endeavor.

From the three official participated teams and less competitive tournament, 1st runner up is just fine for me :)

no tittle

I went to the morning class as stated on my schedule, trying to be a punctual person even I know I'm still a few miles away from that. Unfortunately, I was coming 10 - 15 minutes late and the fortunate thing is - the class still not started yet. Still many students were on their way to class.

It was a Geo class and began at 9 o'clock in the morning. But the class started almost at 10 due to 1 particular problem - the problem is unable to identify. So, I lost almost an hour without do nothing. If I can fill the whole hour by sleeping, it will be good for me for sure.

There are a few possibles that might be the cause of this an hour delay of lesson:
  1. The projector's plug is not function or in the other words, it's damaged.
  2. A problem occurs towards the electricity inside the whole block - we moved to the next class and surprisingly, we found the same matter.
  3. The projector itself has been damaged since the past.
UEL t-shirts have been distributed to all UEL students yesterday after I kept those shirts almost 4 months time. Well, it decreases the total amount of my responsibility a little bit somehow. Seems that a new CE batch has interested on this t-shirt - should I take some benefit and make some money from them? Just a lucrative opportunity is rolling down to me :)

I got a new lecturer

Like I always do, I will update my blog with the latest issue that happen to my life recently. It might not be interested for some people yet I don't care at all. I just want to spend a very limited time of mine into something that I like before I got so many things need to be done within this semester.

Since in the earlier of this semester, we have been told that our lecturer for Geo - mechanic subject will not stay with us for the whole semester - someone will replace her position and once we heard about this unfortunate news, everyone starts to despair about it. She's not going to resign or quit, she just wants to give a chance for this new lecturer to take over our class as this new lecturer demands for it - with a very skeptical reason - he thinks that he more comfortable to teach our batch, the final year student that busy with crucial projects need to be submitted.

So today, the previous lecturer is officially no longer with us as this new lecturer came to our class to start his first ever lesson under UEL program. He just a fresh graduate from nowhere and as usual, I don't expect too much from this guy based on his first debut today. Even I'm not so clear how far this guy could guide me in Geo, yet I still showed some respect to him and smile broadly every time we look at each other.

With the very simple introduction about him - he just informed his name and nickname, no more than that - he started the lecture with draw a few graphs, asking about the meaning behind each symbol that we could find in the notes. Well, I was dumbfounded. Poor me.

My friends at the back were unable to reach his voice. the sound is too soft and I've no clue for that. Maybe he still shies with us, unable to adapt the new environment and one more thing, his cloth was soaked after sweating out of many drops. I suspect this new lecturer is still in the state of NERVOUS. It's so obvious.

This is just a general issue and no specific name or individual has been stated along this article. For those who were in the situation, please do not be offended.

presentation sucks

It has been issued by my own lecturer since a couple of days back that the whole students in my class who are taking the structural design will have a presentation session. A session to present our proposal that 100 percently come out by our own idea (of course plagiarism is not allowed) to the panel a.k.a our own lecturer.

This presentation is supposed to take place on last Thursday, yet it has been postponed for some particular reason as it was reported that our panel was not feeling well. So he canceled the date just at the night before the presentation took place. Surely, it was good news for me as I wasn't prepare anything even a single slide. What a lucky man in the world I am.

Finally, the presentation was held today and I don't think I perform very well. If I want to make a comparison with other presenter, it so obvious that I'm a big loser and if this presentation is counted in marking, it seriously would affect my final score later in the end of this semester. Luckily it was not. No doubt.

My title is "to design the Mantin Megamall". This title is accepted but it would be declined if I stay with the location which I wish to locate this mall at somewhere in Mantin region. I've been advised to move my proposed structure to somewhere else like Nilai or Kajang. The reason is because, Mantin region is just a small town compare with both cities. Furthermore, to design a Mall in Mantin is impossible due to the population here. It doesn't makes sense.

Back to the story, everything was flopped out and nothing has turned to something bettter. Well, I can't blame anyone for everything I get except myself as I decided to delay the presentation until the last minute time. I prefer to play computer's game all the time rather than anything and there is no chance for the presentation session to take my attention.

Ok, this is the main problem - obviously, I'm still fooling around with my study and it has touched my awareness somehow. I'm not focused and not fully dedicate my time for books and notes where these should be my priority for now.

I'm aware of this matter and start to change the habit. Unfortunately, it just takes a while before I'm practicing back my old habit.

No pictures available in here as I found my ass quite lazy for that ,yet my friend uploaded on her page. Please take a short tour on http://nurulhelwa.blogspot.com/2009/10/1st-presentation-chapter-1-done.html

new semester - it's getting hard

This is the 3rd week since the new semester is reopened yet I'm still looking the right direction to step on.

What do you expect after the 3rd week in the class, associate again with your old friends after the summer holidays or some people would call these as semester break- which is, it took for 3 months and half? - Come to the class and start to listen the lecturer's voice again - just take every single word that spewed out from their mouth.

It's great to mingle back with my lovely friends, we start to share our past activity during the semester break and keep talking until the lecturer's pissed off. Meanwhile, we have to face 3 projects which are required us to execute alone and those three projects starts to piss us by it's little progression - no more in group as we are undergoing bachelor now :)

when the desire kicks in

It has been a long time since I abandoned my blog about a month and half ago - the main reason why do I have to make this hard decision is - the internet connection was being sucks - At the mean time, it was reported that this college was undergoing the execution of upgrading work from LAN connection area to WIFI city. Well, it sounds great isn't it? yet, I was the victim of the great deal of this upgrading process.

Since that moment, I missed a lot of things which I thought I could share some of them with my fellow friend, unfortunately it was completely absurd as the internet connection keep disconnected. And since that moment as well, all possession or enthusiasm were fade away to the drain.

It something like a new stimulation or new perfect temptation has been injected recently in me - suddenly the desire to update my blog has kicked in - like the old days, I'll try to active this blog at least once per day or once in a while.

What the hell I'm babbling in here?...

56th - construction begins

Yesterday, I was mentioning about the rumors regarding the new development made by this company. Initially, I thought the enforcement will be start within 3 or 4 days ahead but obviously, my expectation is completely wrong.

Once I enter the motorcycle plant, I saw a few unknown people with the "temporary pass" tag attached on the shirts, kind of busy with their work, to gauge the boundary and make as many as required with the tiny string crossing to each other. While some people were standing and talking altogether while observing their labor completing the gauge task.

I let them to settle up their work (well, it was a very bored view to see them, did a general fundamental process in construction and I thought it's better for me to leap away), even sometimes I start to dream about my future - would be the biggest part of successful team in construction and managing the most of the biggest project in the future.

My focus is back to the motorcycle plant - tried to mitigate the battery rejection.

55th - new development

It seems that this company has accumulated such a bunch of money since the early of their establishment. I'm quite shock once my ear get full with the rumors of a new building will be designed and develop straightforward in the upcoming days.

From time to time, this company tries to expand as wide as possible their wings in order to fullfill the non-stop demand and directly accumulate the massive profit as a reward. Since the half decade ago, this company never stops in order to develop new factories, warehouses, building and so on in order to support and balance the demand, which is keep increasing from time to time.

Surely, this construction activity and development project would be attracting enough fro my eyes as I'm a person who is the next engineer to be in the next few years. The purposed site is just right in front of the motorcycle plant and there is no reason for me to not make an observation at any time when all construction works take place.

55th - new joints

Since yesterday, I realized that this company still desperate to find the manpower as many as possible to sustain and keep this company to reach its lofty goals - to supply batteries all over the world under the name of Yokohama Batteries, for sake of its profit.

There are 5 new manpower will be hired today and most of them will be located at the different department, respected on their skills and knowledge. Unfortunately, from those new manpower, no one is spared for QC department. Which is, this department is requiring the very high of labor to hold the quality control positions and vacancies.

I can't wait for someone to come and take my position as I'm assigned by my superior to be the temporary inspector at the motorcycle plant. My job and responsibilities in here will last whenever the new QC is promoted - agreed by the human resource management to approve this new inspector.

54th - lacking of rest time

First of all, before I start moving to the next paragraph, I just want to inform everyone that this is the scheduled post which was written down earlier in a word document before I transferred in the web page of mine. I can't post out this entry as I can't find the internet access here in my room. I've no idea what happen to this fucking college because it starts to create a problem with the internet connection. Surely a million of people are getting pissed right now and I'm one of them.

It seems that I'm quite busy with my activity during a couple of weekends. The day that I expect to sleep a little bit much longer. it would be more pleased if I lied down on the very comfortable mattress of mine until the brunch time. Yet, it was totally failed to achieve this objective that I set in my wise mind beforehand. Just imagine, yesterday I woke up early in order to go to my convocation ceremony (I'm afraid to miss the bus trip) and today, I still need to wake up early to go to work. It's quite similar situation but different purposes. After all, this is the life that I choose and I vowed for not to look back and retreat. Go Kamarul...Go Kamarul!!!!

weekend - convo, what a day..

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages and Mac Lovers, I have crossed the holy grail of formal education cycle and have stepped on to a new horizon. Where my future life looks easy to fill up the vacancies, gaining the holy source of money for my own livelihood, to feed and sustain without much effort.

I was having a chance to attend a wonderful convocation after I sacrificed almost 280 ringgit. The total fee wasn't including the guest that you might bring along during this ceremony in progress. I paid 280 ringgit just only for a couple of hours in order to sit, listen and watch the flow of this event, which I reckoned that it didn't take me the most. Well, money is something worth, but not for the services, it's worth nothing and nonsense. I'm supposed to deserve more great of joy which is suitable with the money that I have invested. I need something value for money.

Maybe some people would say, such event like this needs to be the greatest memories as it happens once in a life time experience. Its fine, these people do nothing wrong. Unfortunately, I'm not a person who is concerning in keeping memories in my head, or at least to frame any photo and hang them in the wall, staring on it all days even it just a glimpse. It just a waste indeed and make my brain a little bit messy. Literally, keeping memories is not my stuff, still many things need to think and I don't want to make the brain jammed when all of these matters are jumbled up. It's going to blow into a thousand pieces later.

From the whole event, I could come out with a short summarize even I'm not pleased on this ceremony:

Legenda Education Group (LED) held its fifth Convocation Ceremony on Sunday, 9 August 2009. It was held recently at Shangri La Hotel, Jalan Sultan Ismail, KL. The Convocation Ceremony started with the lighting of the lamp of wisdom by the Chief Guest Dato' Saifuddin bin Abdullah (Deputy Minister of High Education) and other guests of honor.

This year, a total of 662 LEG students graduated in their respective fields of studies (correct me if I'm wrong regarding the total number). All 662 students were undergraduate students in various fields, namely Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Business Information Systems and etc. All graduates received their scrolls of honors from Deputy minister of high education, Dato' Saifuddin bin Abdullah at the Ballroom of Shang Ri La hotel.

p/s: Please be cleared that I've nothing to against the tradition or culture that was created since ages. It just my point of view, the way I see how I wasted much time and cash. After all, from my point of view, convocation is nothing. It doesn't help us even a bit in pursuit our carrier. So do in determining our next future and achievement. Dear folks, please do in believing me.

53rd - a letter to Tai Kwong group

To all members of Tai Kwong batteries industry:

Ladies and gentlemen,

Today, all of us have done the company proud as we have a splendid production record which is, we able to produce out more than 150,000 automotive batteries for the month of July. It's clearly shows that we have earned the right to walk tall, knowing that we can achieve what was unimaginable since the first time I become the new joint of this group.

Personally, it has filled me with pride, being able to tell others especially outsiders or even my regular blog readers that Tai Kwong Yokohama Batteries is not the "Chinaman company" that some sneered at. We now have a team of professionals that withstood the pressure and challenges that management has thrown at.

I know that some of us in particular have been directly or indirectly affected by verbal and written reprimands and I'm glad that it only made us stronger and more determined to prove ourselves.

It's very much more than the 150,000 target breaking that should be highlighted but the ability to accept change to improve, is really beyond my expectation. Keep it up guys!!! Although credit should not be taken away from the marvelous effort by the production team, but recognition must also be accorded to the unsung and often forgotten people behind the scene.

The maintenance people that ensured less breakdowns and all the support people like me, which is contributed also deserve a pat on our backs. A special mention to our beloved manufacturing executive, Mr Todd Lisborg for his excellent production - management. Well, a celebration is in order and frankly speak, I'm proud to be a part of all this achievement.

52nd - Interested in table tennis

Greetings...

Well, I prefer for not jotting down anything like usually I did, which is most of the contents were probably related with my daily work. Nothing was stunning has happened, no extraordinary moment needs to share today, all I have is only to endure every bit of endless suffer that I'm facing very often almost in every day. Let's find something diversity apart from the working stuff...

Last Tuesdays, Tai Kwong advocated a table tennis tourney for all their workers. So, everyone could participate in this indoor tournament as long as they work under Tai Kwong properties including me. I'm the one who enrolled my name since the last two weeks when this tourney was advertised all over the factories. It's all free and the bills of all trophies or any sort of prizes are under company's financial management.

Once I enrolled my name in the registration sheets, I was eager to have at least a short training in order to improve my terrific skills. It has been a while that I didn't hold the table tennis's bad and I start my first step out with the training room. Here, the management provides a special room for training purpose and will let you to practice for how many hours you need depends on your endurance.

They only allow you to start your training at 6 p.m every day, which is after working hours and will be continued until the next 3 or 4 hours ahead. But, I just came once even some of them were practicing most in every day. The reasons are shown as follows:
  1. The distance between my home and the work place is around 20 Kilometers. It's far enough for me as I need to through the haunted area alone even it's not midnight yet. The route is extremely silence and very dark.
  2. It's not because I'm coward or no guts. The source of the problem is, I got problem with my sight. Some people do now how I'm struggling to see when the surrounding is very dark or too bright. Please don't mock me, mind you!
  3. After I finish my training on that day, I reached home around 30 minutes pass over 9 0'clock. Obviously, it's still early but I didn't think on that way. I grab my pillow, setting up my mattress and bed, felt asleep until the next following day without taking bath.
  4. During the practice session in the training room, I stood for no chance to get more point as all my services were replied with the opponent's crazy return. It's hard for me to find the starting point and the breakthrough of the ideal performance in this way, even some of them were trying to guide me. I burst out so much frustrated feeling on the way home. I was giving up.
Well, after I through all these moments, I tried to find a new way of solution. I was trying to ask all my colleagues or even their networking friend that they possibly have, whether they are interested with this indoor game or not. Unfortunately, it wasn't my day. It's hopeless when everyone gave me the same answers and those answers still can't satisfy me.

Thing was not getting any better when I need to go to Pekan for 2 days in a name of outstation for the sake of Tai Kwong dignity. I moved over there on Tuesday, the same day with the tournament took place and there's no chance for me to play. On top of that, even I still have a chance to play, I don't think I could make it through in the next stage. I'm surely will be kicked out during the preliminary stage. End of the long entry :)

51st - it's never change...

After 7 days that full of joy and excitements, now I need to put myself back on the track, to become a very responsible, energetic, hardworking and aggressive employee. Take and face everything no matter what, let them to stimulate with my passion and painstaking in order to done any task.

Well, it just a starting point for today, which I thought that I could revive and regain back the spirit of "working" beforehand. Unfortunately, it won't take long as the situation has forced me to switch the vision to something way different. Something that makes me sleepy, hopeless, annoyed and look so stupid. The situation that I mean is I need to cling around at the Motorcycle Department again.

As everyone knows, I was in Pekan for the last two days and have spent my own money for my budget including foods and any other expanses. Now, it's time for me to claim back all the money that was invested during the business trip from the management. Hopefully, they would give extra bucks to show their highly appreciation due to my diligent services.

Based on my money track backs, I was spending around 20 ringgit per day including foods or any sorts of diversion activity, Meaning, I was spending at least 40 ringgit for two days in a row. According to my department's clerk, management would contribute 30 ringgit per day to whoever which is need to work outstation at least a day without consider the location, whether the distance is quite far or not.

If you spend extra money which is exceeding than 30 ringgit per day, management are not going to cover back those extra money and they still pay you the total amount which is already stated on the agreement sheets. No privilege for you even you are the manager and they never concern about the location that you need to attend. So, you should be wised in spending all the time no matter where you are.

50th - bad moments..

This entry is the continuity of yesterday's post as I wasn't had enough time to share my daily live experiences. Back to the topic, yesterday was a very tiredness day and everything looked sucks. It started with the people over there where they can't give their full cooperation with us.

Once again we have to work under the sweltering sun and things didn't get any better after we need to brought and remove all 73 pieces of batteries from a pallet and put it in front of the 73 units of trucks.

I don't mind at all if those trucks were located in a short distance from the pallet but thing's that totally makes me screw up is, we need to walk almost 100 meters with a very heavy batteries are hanging on our both hands. Just imagine how much suffer we have to endure if we need to remove all 73 pieces of batteries.

It's hard for me to believe that in a big company like this, they don't provide any forklift for the guest's uses or at least to provide a small trolley for us is just good enough and we are very thankful. They do have forklifts yet they were stingy to lend one of it.

This time, the task is quite tough and complicated. And the worst part, it takes a long time to accomplish. They were strictly prohibited us to work until the twilight come over or exceeding the time. As a result, we have to rush in installing the batteries before the approved time. Luckily we make it on time and I don't want to talk about the quality. Just imagine how was the quality if you work under pressure circumstance?

I dumbfounded for a moment once I heard they asked us to park our vehicle outside of the factory's boundary and not allowed us to park inside. I've no idea what were they thinking and what is the purpose of all this. They think that we are going to steal one of their vehicle products or abduct one of their securities.? Such a bunch of small minded people. So, we had to walk almost 300 meters before we reached at the work place.

At night, I was suffering bruises all over my fingers, yet I still could jotting down something inside my blog, that what I was looking forward when the job of the battery's installation get done. Well, I'm in my room now, waiting for tomorrow morning. Sometime I wish for the time to tick slowly as I'm very lazy to start working tomorrow.

49th - currently in Pahang for 2nd time

First of all, I'm currently blogging from Pekan, Pahang once again, online-ing with someone lappy and surely I didn't have much time to hold it on my grasp as the owner needs to use for working purposes. Yesterday, someone was calling me and wanted me to get involved in this business trip. Well, now I can see that I'm becoming one of the company's important assets as they still put a trust on me even I wasn't come to work yesterday.

Lately, seems that my schedule for these two weeks was full with excitements stuff as I was traveling out away far from my common boundaries. Last week, I was in Pekan for a business trip and in the last two days, I was in Perak in order to attending my Friend's wedding reception.

Right now, I never expect that I was given a chance to escort a special force to go to Pekan for the second time within a week, with a special purpose and objective which is to install back the batteries into the DMAX pick-up trucks.

There are 73 pieces of batteries with the loading around 18 Kilos need to be installed on the provided case, inside the truck's engine. Last time, the task is quite easy as we just need to take it out from the truck's front hood but now, it's getting a little bit tougher than before as we need to lift it with 18 kilos of load stick along and locate it properly inside the case. It quite tough and a little bit complicated as we need to ensure no scratch even a single line during the process takes place.

Last time, the time estimation is only 2 minutes per battery and now the time need to be expanded more that 4 minutes time if no problem arise. This time, we have to install more than 4 bolts and make sure it's tight enough. That's the main thing why it's costing me so much time. And the time estimation could exceed more than 5 minutes time if we have to face any lame problem such as loosing the screw or the bolt is not in the right socket.

Got so many thing need to be described here, but I'm running out of time right now as the owner of this lappy is going to retain his belonging in a few second time. So, got you tomorrow...

48th - cuti

I didn't come to work today due to the weaknesses condition of my entire body, the source is probably come from a 2 days trip to Perak and consequently, I felt so week since early in the morning even I was still could be able to wake up once my alarm rang out loud.

Yet I still have a spirit and decided to put some energy as a little effort to kick my ass to stand. Unfortunately, It just a waste once I remembered that all my uniforms were dirty as I left them unwashed since a past few days in order to travel to Perak. Quite despair a little bit Then, I decide to continue my sleep.

9 o'clock in the morning, an annoying sound came over from my phone. I could recognize of the ring tones and it was a calling from my office. Try to trace me and to ensure that I'm safe enough, asking me a concrete reason why I'm not coming to work today. I never know all these people love me a lot until they really want to know the roots of my reason. Well, I think it's such a nuisance.

In order to cover up the situation, one of my friends suggested me to take an emergency MC which, I could easily get from a particular clinic. At first, I'm not interested until I changed my intention in the late evening. So I went to the particular clinic and cheating the doctor once he asked about my illness.

I'm totally lost a big amount of cash as it was costing me around RM 30 ringgit for the medicine, just want to get a piece of precious paper that has written "medical certificate" on its surface. Well, what kind of sacrifice I did just now and it worth nothing. Surely I'll try to claim this on HR department especially for the cost of the medicines.

travelling to Perak..part 003

After a few hours time we were sitting on the chair and while having a chit chat with all members under the massive concise tent and shelter, The groom, which is my friend was introducing his wife to us. I just can't hear her name clearly and I've no intention to know more. I got nothing to do with her name I suspect but based on what I heard, she's an Indonesian. Not a common Indonesian that we could easily find as a maid or whatever, but she's an autocrat which is living with fancy stuff and luxury lifestyle.

It's time to move our ass away to the next location. We though that it was enough time to spend with our marriage friend and seems that his hands would be busy once all of us disappear from his ground yard. I'm sure he has to clean everything, clear up all rubbish, get rid and vanish all unnecessary stuff away from the eyesight that would ruin down the scenic ground yard.

So, once again we have to split into a few bunches of people, this time it's not two, but three groups which is, one group was heading to Penang, one group to Parit Buntar and the other one was headed down back to KL. I was in the group which is to Parit Buntar as we had a place to sleep and rest. It's a rented house that belongs to one of my friends. Luckily, no one is going to be a tenant of the house and it's so obvious that we had a chance to have a place to stay.

At night, we planned to roam all over the penang island. Franky speak, I couldn't find myself to enjoy the sea view as we traveled at the night, almost midnight actually. All I can see is only a black wall which is completely block my eyes. It was a little bit frustrated feeling actually as this is the first time ever I'm going to step over the Penang ground.

No many place we could hung up as the weather was on the raining mode. Once we satisfied on what we had through and experienced, we decide to went home and take a total rest before we headed back to KL. Before that, we were trying to trace the gang from Sentul but we failed. Too many obstacles need to face and one of them is, one of the car was lacking of fuel, forcing us to forgo our plan on that night.

After a long tighten sleep on the very comfortable mattress, the noon was coming, We get ourselves prepared for the way to back in KL. As usual, it took almost 4 hour time on the journey. Plus we had stopped at R&R in Sungai Perak. That was the last station we stopped and the next location is in Sentul. From sentul, once again Jang and I rode away from KL city to where we came from. Until Nilai's tol plaza, we split away to the next destination.

travelling to Perak..part 002

From the stall we move straightforward to Ayap's at the very early in the dawn and the time was very late, around 3 o'clock in the morning. I felt guilty at the moment I knocked the door, disturbing someone while he was sleeping. But we don't have a choice and I don't want to sleep anywhere like homeless people even sometime we look so. We aren't junkies to sleep on the bus station or any public shelter indeed.

Ayap was welcoming us with his ugly eye bags, seems that he was sleeping for a long time yet still drowsy. The mattress was ready to have my tiredness body, I just bedridden and felt asleep once I put my head off the pillow, waiting for the sun to arise on the next day. We have a long journey to go through.

Next morning, almost 20 people were ready to go to Perak. The mission is quite same, to attend one of our friends's wedding reception in Taiping. From 20 persons, 12 of them are from Sentul itself and the rest are former students from LEG college. Even we are not from the same clan, yet we have met quite often before this in so many times. Therefore, we know each other even we are not so close.

Sentul were moving first and left us behind as we need to wait another person from Kuantan. At first, he decide for not to come until he switched his decision at the very last minute time. Consequently, we need to wait him to reach Sentul until afternoon. While waiting for him, we decide to find a special present to show our congratulations due to our friends towards his wedding. So, we accumulate a few bucks to find a big one.

The journey began just right at the afternoon. At 3 o'clock in the evening, we were finally reached over to the groom's house. The rain was falling down yet it was not so heavy, it was drizzling. Once again, we met up with those Sentuls clan and obviously, they were full enough and all of them in a lazy mode. We did a handshake with some of the people that we thought as the groom's family members or important people that have responsibility to ensure this event to succeed.

We were offered to have some dishes and drinks which is already served and waited to be eaten. We were starving to the death and without wasting time, I fed up everything until I burped out and alternately drinks a few gulps of water, just to make sure the digesting process went smooth through the intestine. Sometimes I almost mustered out as I stacked in too many foods.

travelling to Perak..part 001

I'm planning to go to Perak, not for a business trip but to attending my close friend's wedding reception somewhere in Taiping. This plan was issued since the past two weeks in order to get everyone's approval and setting up everything accordance to the event based on the group's compromising. The event is exactly on Saturday and I have no option except to take a leave for a day.

I move out from my apartment and through the accommodation surveillance gateway at the midnight and headed to Nilai as someone was waiting me at somewhere. In a way from my apartment to Nilai, there are many haunted places that always been talking utmost everyday by the population here. So, I've to go through alone all these horrifying place that full with hair-raising rumors of ghost story at the middle of night. You just imagine how scared I was at that time.

I met Jang at the Nilai's Tol Plaza and we had a short conversation before we continue our journey and headed to Ayap's in Sentol. Jang was coming from Melaka as he works over there since 6 months ago after he graduated from this college. It has been a while that I didn't meet up with this guy.

We were in Sentul after a few minutes time of riding and united with some friends over there and manage to find any stall that still run their business at the very late night. All of us will join the trip to Perak and tomorrow will be more person would like to escort. With the relax setting and with a few cups of drinks get served on the table, waited the hot drinks to reduce the temperature a little bit lesser, we start our conversation with the variable of topics and most of the topics are related in what we are up currently.

Most of us have our own carrier apart from me which is still a student and obviously no special commitment to take care of. It has been a while that we didn't hang up like this since all of them graduated from undergoing their HND during the old days. From my point of view, they don't change much and show no different at all. They still stay with their own personalities that I know before. Having this change to mingle with this people is a very lucrative moment.

Time was switching into the dawn and everyone decided to split away to their home while me and Jang moved to Ayap's which only a few seconds away.

the journey will be continued. A plenty of dramas still to come....

47th - stuck in the state of bored

I still run some errands alone as I usually did since I was in here, specifically when no testing needs to run, which is to be in the production line and monitor the employees, give some guidance if necessary towards on every single wrongdoing they have committed.

Since yesterday, I know there is no testing would be assigned for me and realize today would be a long day for me indeed. Not many things I could do today and I'm really bored to the death. I was becoming one of the slowpokes on this earth as my body didn't sweat even a drop. I need something that could an adequately kick my nerves to move and generate all my body cells so that I could be more energetic. Well, I don't have that for now.

It just a big lie if I said nothing happened on every moment that I went through today. I do through many things but it just the same circumstances, no extraordinary stuff happened to show any different. It's something like the same old drama that I wrote it all in the previous entries.

I never have intention to write it all over again as I know it would be a crappy and boring article to be. I'm also frustrated and fed up to write the same thing every day. I wonder when all this could change to something way different than this.

46th - batteryrejectandstillintheoutstationmode

I'm still tired today even I was reaching at home around 3 o'clock in yesterday evening after a very long trip. We start our journey and left Pekan around 10 o'clock in the morning and took almost 5 hours before we found ourselves in the Mantin territory.

I was one of the passenger and didn't drive the vehicle even a meter, but I'm still unable to stop my body from feeling a very tiredness. I don't know what happen to my biological sleeping clock as I feel sleepy all the time and lazy if I couldn't fall asleep.

I'm still free from any testing and the only think I could do right now is, standing and cling stupidly around the motorcycle area with the sleepy eyes and force them to protrude. Yet, there's one thing that still need to get my attention, to count the total of rejected batteries of motorcycle and record them into the rejection check sheets.

I'm quite shock once I'm done the counting. The total amount of the rejected batteries is out of my expectation. It's more than 350 pieces in four days and this matter was never happen before. Well, no wonder why this matter come arise.

Currently, the motorcycle plant have 2 primary shifts which are in the morning and evening. The production rate is pretty quick and so do for the rejected battery. It increased from a day to the next and the problem will finally goes to me. What I'm supposed to say to the maanger?

45th - outstation is over

The objective of the business trip is finally accomplished. This is my first morning at Pekan as I never been in here before. It was a breezing morning due to the raining last night and the surrounding of this accommodation is extremely silence, such a peaceful place to stay.

We still need to do something before we could head back to the way we came from and the task is not so tough like yesterday. If yesterday, we just need to remove 75 pieces of batteries and put them under the trucks, today we need to take those batteries and locate them on the pallet, provided by the person in charge over there.

There's something that I want to complain about the workers over here. Seriously, I don't like all these people, they screwed me up with their annoying jokes. I'm never meant to offend anyone, but to face all these crap has just make me irritated.
  1. The person in charge was making a joke and it was subjected to us, the people he never ever made and I think he lost his respect to us as his special guest. We got an ear full and were offended deep down in our heart. Since then, I expressed out all curse and profanities only for him.
  2. They asked us to pay at least 50 ringgit for the forklift. Thing that we are not satisfied is, they want us to remove the batteries and transfer them at the other place, yet they don't provide us any transport until we decide to pay the fuel for the forklift.
Can you just imagine, we need to pay Rm 50 just for one trip of forklift which is didn't take more than 10 minutes time? The forklift is belonging to them, why they don't just lend us the forklift for a few minutes. Such a bunch of stingy. This is the world of business, they are practicing for no mercy!!!

44th - outstation

I'm currently blogging in Pekan, Pahang due to a business trip. Got something need to be done in here as I'm one of the special force team in order to enforce a special mission. With 3 persons were escorting me, we've been given a special task, to remove a big amount of batteries from 75 units of Isuzu DMAX pick-up trucks.

All the trucks were located at the flat area, it's something like a very spacious field of bitumen. I just can't imagine how big this area and it's full with many units of vehicles from the various types of models. The place doesn't have any shelter or shade that you could hide yourself from the sun and just imagine how we worked under the high temperature circumstances. This is truly a wonderful experience indeed.

The moment before I traveled to pekan, the story goes like this:

I already know about my job schedule for today as I've been told that I need to be in the production line for the second time within 2 days. The QC in charge was still not coming, without any special leave's letter or at least a short note of excuse.

So, I took the challenge and secure all check points even sometime I'm whining over. Seems like yesterday, it didn't take a long time and the issue is different from yesterday, no more machine breaks down for today. The exact reason why I'm so excited is because, I'm going for a business trip within two days from today until tomorrow. Well, I'm so hilarious at the moment :)

43rd - less fortunate..

I was struggling yesterday for my victory and my body didn't have sufficient time to restore properly. Today is Monday and I need to go to work, all my body parts are listless and not very well at all. Thing's not getting any better after my skin switched into darker due to the sunburns. I'm not very sensitive with the sweltering rays, yet to have a black skin cover up all over my body is not something that could please me :(

Not so many work had done and no testing anymore need to launch on this day. Moreover, my superior wasn't come due to her alternate leave and I thought that I could have much time to spend only for relaxing. Things didn't happen as I wish after my superior was calling me from nowhere and turn myself into apprehensive mode, she insisted me to be in the production line for a while to replace one of the QC over there. She told me that the QC in charge were unable to come due to the personnel matter. I start to realize the call was ruining down my day :(

The phone call went off and I start myself to frown, feel a little bit aggravate towards my superior. How come she knows the production line was lacking of QC and desperate to need one as temporary successor? and why she was pointing her finger on me to find an ideal solution? I still accept the task and did anything that necessary especially on checking and recording part. Fortunately, it didn't take long as one of the main machines broke down and the maintenance in charge were unable to do anything until the special force get involved later. So, the production line didn't have any option accept to stop the whole line.

weekend - out of the blue...

Yesterday evening, when the sun started to hide it's ray, one of my friends gave me a phone call, asking me whether I'm free or not this weekend and he planned to put my name on his team list for Takraw tourney somewhere in Mantin. Initially, I wasn't interested with that as I tend to sit back and have the relax setting during the weekend after 6 days of being a workaholic person yet, he insisted me to get my ass in and convincing me that we are going to win this tourney. He is such a determined person indeed.

I don't know why I'm so excited of no reason to start writing down in this second paragraph and next. But I'm very sure that this is the very stunning, very dazzling, very sensational, very remarkable, very outstanding, very outrageous, very fascinating, very tremendous, very fantastic, very magnificence, very superb, very amazing, very fabulous and very marvelous weekend as our team has a very convincing winning the title of Takraw tourney.

Start from the preliminary stage, we got almost 16 teams took part and more than 50 participants were endeavor of playing to the death to strike the title. We have to face all of them no matter what. Our team is just a sudden-form-team and I never played with them apart from my killer as we were played together since ages. It's quite lucky when all my team members were on their top-notch, everyone played well until the final even the sweltering sun was burning the skins.

After we sacrificed and nail it everything we had in every match, finally we able to bring back 5 massive hampers. This is something out of the blue and I never think to win this. The winning momentum will keep me smile and I'm going to strike a new title next week, the ping pong tourney. Oh shit, should get myself on training yet I'm still wonder, where do I can find the people who could train with me?
my great teammate


of course this is me :p

42nd - aku benci seseorang!!!

I spend almost 8 hours time by doing nothing today as no more testing need to conduct. The previous testing was done triumphantly as all results were come out right on the time and I handed the result's sheets away to my superior and let she continues the rest.

Normally, if I don't have any testing to run, my superior will assign me as a temporary inspector at motorcycle department which is, still no QC inspector is available over there. I've been informed that, the new QC will start to be hired in the next few weeks and surely the management will locate him or her at this department. It just a sweet escape for me as a lazy worker in term of observing something without do nothing. It screws me up dammit!!!!

Well, even I was hanging up in the motorcycle department in so many times, I still unable to adapt myself with one particular person over there. The person that I mention just now is a supervisor and honestly speak, he quite cocky towards me, everything I did or even the workers did are all wrong from his eyes. He thinks that he is the one who could settle everything without letting any of us to ponder about. This is a very frustrated feeling to work with typical people like this. Feel like to smash his face into a thousand pieces.

41st - new testing for me : battery's handle testing

Seems that my schedule for this week is quite pack as a series of testing need to be implemented. Things is not getting any better when those testings need an instant result as urgent requirement from a few parties, apart from QC department.

This is the very new testing for me as I never done this before and this is the first time for me to run this testing. I was a little bit shock when my superior told me that she unable to help me out and she just relied everything on me to perform the whole testing. Yet she already gave a clear briefing, a several tips and complete instructions beforehand.

This time, the testing is significantly to test the durability and the restrained ability of the battery's handle or some people would call that as a battery's holder, attach on the battery's cover. This testing is quite easy if you could understand the objectives and how to well manage the testing yet, it's quite dangerous and full with risk. You have to play with many kilos of concrete loads and you should watch your foots all the time during this testing is conducted.

The idea of this testing is appear when the management of this company wants to create a new design of handle. The want to come out with a new design to change with the old design, where they believe that this new kind of handle is more durable, more sophisticated, more easy and comfortable to grab and long lasting.

There are 6 types of handle that need to be test. Each handle would spend a long time to analyze before the final result would be emerged. I'm going to explain this testing in a general way:
  1. I need to take a cover which has a handle is already attached and hang it at the special machines (specially for this kind of testing).
  2. Then, I need to take two special steel bars with a tray. To measure how many possible weight to make the handle fail to restrain.
  3. I need to put many kilos on that tray until the handle failed down, all I need to do is, record down the total weight in a special form.
  4. The testing done.

40th - new testing implementation

Straightforward to the point as I'm running out of time in my untidy room, with the time is showing 30 minutes pass over the midnight. It's a bed time and I'm supposed in my dream, have a good time probably somewhere around Paris. I was negligent for quite some times as I watched Transformers 2, the revenge of the fallen for the 2nd time, downloaded by my housemate a couples of days ago. I forget to update because this movie is fucking awesome.

Seems like I can't stand any chance to have a relaxation day as a new testing is need to be implemented. This time, to form a battery by using the second grade material particularly the negative and positive plate. Second grade material is a raw stuff that has a minor defection yet still can be used. In this case, I need to form a battery by using the defected plates.

Second grade plate could be determined by observing the plate surface. If there are many holes on the plate (in Tai Kwong, they called this defection as a powder drop), it would be considered the plate as a second grade. If the plate have a serious powder drop, the plate can't be used anymore and need to re-process.

Usually, second grade plate could be used but one condition needs to apply which is in one battery, you are not allowed to use 100 percent defected material. Meaning, you have to grab a small amount of defected plate and stack alternately with the flawless plate. This is what they always practice if they find the second grade plate.

And now, they try to change the style, change the solution of the second grade plate and try to use 100 percent defected plate to form a battery. They want to investigate whether the quality of second grade plate could be much similar with the non defected plates. If this testing finds a good achievement, surely no need to distinguish the plates anymore apart from the serious powder drop plate during the staking process.

39th - x tahu nk tulis tajuk apa....

My superior showed up today after she put herself on unavailable mode. As usual, she'll start to become energetic again as she was leaving all her works for the last two days. Even though, she still has intention and interest to ask about the testing that I'm running currently. She prefer for its progress and wanted to see the result. The testing is just fine and everything went smoothly. Only a few parts are still not accomplished yet but I'll try to endeavor on it when the right time comes.

It's not overdue if I tend to write down a short brief regarding the motorcycle departments. There are 3 production lines available nowadays after the 3rd line of production line was recently arrived. Meaning, this department would become a noisy place similarly with the other department. I'm wondering where is the next place I could go to release some tension and cooped myself out from this real world.

38th - I hate blood test

My superior was not around today as she need to attend a special practice in somewhere, I'm not sure the exact location but for sure, she would be in the practice room for the whole day. This is the second day that I didn't meet her and frankly speak, I feel that I've lost some guidance from her. She leaves me away without saying any, even goodbye and didn't brief me what I'm supposed to do. She has to prepare my complete schedule beforehand.

I got a blood test today in TKYB, not only for me but also for the whole worker especially operators whether they involve directly or not. Even the staffs which stay in the office and rare to expose themselves and inhale the lead powder need to take part on this test. For those who are trying to skip away, surely they'll got a warning letter inside their mail box.

I'm quite scared of injection tools and to have this blood test was scared the hell out of me. I never have been injected for quite some times and suddenly the nurse needs to take my 4ml blood fluid. What? I though they just cut my skin and take only a drop of blood specimen and the test done.

Things that happen to me during this blood test:
  1. My body was trembling, I was thinking to run away until all QC members calm me down.
  2. My hands were suddenly freaking numb, my face turns to pale and lips wasn't in red anymore.
  3. The nurse didn't find my blood artery. So she holds my arm and make it warm a little bit. A moment later, the artery starts to show up.
  4. The artery does show up, yet it's too tiny and the nurse need to chance the small size of the sarcastic injection.
  5. I was screaming when the needle start to puncture my artery. I got an ear full when everyone was laughing to their death.
  6. Everyone only took 4 or 5 seconds to have 4ml blood in the special container, but I need more than 10 seconds before I could completely flow out my 4ml blood.

37th - randomness

Last night, I was with my friends and hung up around the cafe, located at Kota Seri Emas after the friendly match is over, just want to soak back the thirsty throat after it all dried up.

Just imagine, in a friendly match like that, no drinking water was available or provided from the home player for the guests. I didn't ask much but at least to put a container that full with crystal clear drinking water is just fine. I'm so grateful if they could provide that.

While waiting for the food to be eaten, we have a chat about the randomness stuff until one of the topics has grabbed my attention. Is there any possibility for me to have a public leave tomorrow due to the reminiscing of Isra'k MIkraj's night? (Does the spelling correct?) Is there any possibility for TKYB give this public holiday to all employees especially for Muslim?

For those people who are working under the state of N9, surely, they'll have but not for the people who are working around the region of Selangor. Moreover, the company is belonging to someone who is non-Muslim.

So, to have the better decision, I was phoned out to Kamil, Abidin and not to forget, my superior. All of them were saying the same thing, it's a working day for sure. Obviously, no chance for me to not come in the next day (I mean today, it's Monday)

Next morning, the topic change to the lazy morning, walking down to the canteen of TKYB company and have a chat with friends, usually with a warm water for me and teh tarik for them on the table, waiting to be drink. The issue is about my new hair design and the mood only happens in a bright and relaxed setting. Some of them didn't realize me until they turned their face for the 2nd or 3rd time. I got so many feedback from their perspective, listening on their reckon is all that I can do.

My superior was under her alternate leave since the management was pleased to announce the new working hours for 5 days per week effect from last 15th July 2009 as a group initiative to provide quality weekend to all employees. So, I'm a little bit free and could be anywhere without apprehensive, only the manager I need to beware in case he figures me out :)

weekend - potong rambut, takraw kat nilai

Weekend is coming back and I already have a big plan for killing some leisure that I might have today. It was running in my head for a long time until I made the most hardest decision in my life (I think) and without no hesitation, without solid pressure from anybody and without critical thinking, with my heart wide open and the willingness of myself, I was going to get my hair done somewhere around Mantin.

Within less an hour, the result was come out after waiting the barber finished up her job and the new look of me is freaking sucks!!! argh, I don't like the way she cut down my hair, this is not the style that I asked her to do. I just can't stop myself from laughing to the death when every time I'm standing in front of the mirror, stare my own freaking face makes me screwed up, really!! mmg berdekah!!!! Every time I try to relax, the bad dream emerge and linger inside my head, those people outside are going to make fun of me, mocking me until the tears out. argh!!!!!!!

Well, I still have guts to through all possibilities from the people around, do some significant adjustment towards the hair which is necessary and applied a little bit of gel, Surely it will looks fine. In a few days ahead, surely I could bear with this unexpected situation. F**k la, how come the barber does something measerable like this on me? I still can't except this recent unfortunate thing.

Evening, one of my fellas was calling me, inviting me to join a takraw friendly match, somewhere at Kota Seri Emas, Nilai. I do think that not many people know about this place as it's a new development area, populated less than a thousand people I think (it just my assumption, don't trust me at all, mind you!!!) So, it such a wonderful offer and I decided to have a go.

The total number of us is 3 persons which is an adequately enough to form one team and we were there from evening until the twilight came over. Well, I could see the real game of sepak Takraw in here, most of them played very well, everyone is eager to win and defeat all their opponent is always the main target. It was quite hard games indeed and I could gain some knowledge from them and getting a new network is a must, in case we want to challenge each other, surely it must be in a good manned :)
