Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha

For those Muslims across the world which celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha, it’s not too late to wish right?

Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha

Initially, I'm not gonna say this year Hari Raya Aidiladha is the best raya I ever celebrate, yet not the worst either.

So sadly to mention that I missed to experience the sacrificial slaughter of cows in appreciation of Qurban as required by Islamic teachings. It's because my father was asking if I could help him to pay a visit to his friend nearby in the morning and bring some foods like ketupat, lodeh and rendang.

I thought it takes only half an hour, however it cost me more than 90 minutes before I return home. Well, I'm not going to describe further since too many things had happened in between that I just don't wanna share with the readers..hehe...

Thinking of it, I supposed to help him in the evening instead, once the ritual thing is done. It can't be helped I miscalculated the situation and that time, I felt like I'm the one who was being slaughtered and sacrificed. Haha

Back to the story, the moment I came to the slaughter ground area which is my neighbour's yard, no one was there as everyone left the place already. Obviously, they make it at super fast speed that I missed the whole process. Later on, the meat was distributed to my home and I feel like 'is this Hari Raya Aidiladha for real? Well that's how my Aidiladha ends up. That was pathetic isn't it? And boring too...

And by the way...

It has been a while since I had my hair cut 2 months ago. Realizing how ugly my look was, so I managed to get my hair done last Friday.

Basically, there is my favorite hair salon that I came quite often whenever I want to get my hair cut. To me, the barber just knows very well what kind of hair style I do want. She really knows how to cut my hair...and this is not my imagination.

Speaking about the barber, she is a Chinese gal at her young age and always being my favorite. It can't be denied that she is such a beautiful, lovely and being so nice to me every time I came by.

She is actually the person in-charged in the reception counter. However, when she saw me pulled out the door and step inside, she was keen to take turn to serve me, and this is not the first time she behaves like this.

She did the same thing to the point that I've lost count on how many times we have worked together... hihi. I wonder if she is being nice to everyone too. I don't know if it just me or...

Do you think it's fair?

Do you think it's fair?

People who are able to work long hours in the office are considered committed compare to those who went back on time. They are viewed as durable, energetic and being tipped for the best employee of the year.

In reverse, people who went home on time are considered uncommitted even they achieve the objective compare to those who stay until the late hour of the day to meet the same objective. They are viewed as lazy, unreliable and are not favored in the work force.

Okay, let's observe this from the different perspective and standing point of view.

People who work long hours in the office is considered inefficient compare to those who went home on time. They are viewed as slowpoke, not sophisticated and a disease to the company.

While those who always went home on time are considered efficient compare to those who have to stay until the late hour of the day, to meet the same target of course. They are viewed as intellectual, dynamic  sophisticated and have high possibility to get promoted.

So, what is your employer's point of view? Which perspective takes your boss the most? You should prepare the strategy; otherwise, you mean nothing to your boss.

I Enjoyed Malaysian Cup Finale.. hewhewhew

I'm not so into Malaysian football and the same applied to international leagues or what so ever related to football.

This happens since I graduated from my studies where I've been apart from friends who-so-addicted to this kind of game. I didn't find the enthusiasm since then... Haih~~~

Even so, I never missed any important match which I found interesting to watch, something that can be entertaining and take me the most.

In order to make me not being viewed as such an outdated man, I use to check the football results in the web, especially EPL and LA LIGA on Not just that, I randomly got to know the player/scorer from here as well and I believe most of us have an idea on this particular website. It's very popular among the football fans.

And I don't subscribe the Astro programs just to fulfill what I think not necessary in my social life. It's a strong reason why the desire into football is degraded. To spent time at mamak stall, I'm too waaaaaay far for that. Haha.

Okay, there is the main objective of this entry ~ Watched final Malaysian cup last night between ATM and Kelantan, thanks to RTM for brought it up live on tv 1. For that, I was able to shout out loud when the scoring parts came. Haha..

This final match suddenly grabbed my attention when it became frenzy lately. Kelantan attempted to win the third victory this year after won Liga Super and FA Cup while ATM show stunning comeback from the beginning to win the title. So I thought it's gonna be a tight game and for real, it happened hehe..

So, Kelantan won the match by beating ATM with 3 goals against 2. Honestly, the match was entertaining with both teams kept attempting to score and I must say it was two ways traffic match.

To make thing more excited, the environment turned out a bit tense when both teams were tied with 2 goals and no choice, the game had to be dragged into the extra time.

Well, it can't be helped that Kelantan did better by scoring their winning goal when the extra time just started. Congratulations to Kelantan, they deserve the victory after showing such outstanding effort.

Honestly, if someone asks which team I'm gonna support, I'll take ATM. I just don't have the interest in Kelantan since most of the fans were bragging about their team spirit, occupied most of the stadium's seats and winning streak. I just can't blend with it. No offense to Kelantan fans okay..huhu

I'm not bothered anyway who team had won and which team succumbed to the lost. It’s fine if I enjoy the game and worth for my time :)

I have a lot of work yet I am here sleeping my way through. Haih~

Hmm... I'm so bored. I know, I suppose to go to office today. I have a lot of unfinished things to look at. Risk analysis submission to JPP, submissions to IWK, submissions to local authority for 3 cypark solar projects and a lot more where should be settled by next week. Obviously they are gonna be delayed and sadly, no active progress for all of them. So there you go, I have a lot of work in between yet I am here sleeping my way through. Haih~

I feel guilty to Mr F for cypark projects as he did most of the design all the way from structure to infra. Truthfully, those projects are supposed under my responsibility and Mr F just checks upon my design and drawing. He is the project manager and I work under his supervision anyways. Mathematically, I just contributed less than 10% from the entire process.

It seems all instructions felt to the deft ears as I paid all attention to JPP project. I wonder if he pissed for what I've done.

And I've JPP meeting on Monday yet a lot of things are not in place. I 100% confident the client will be irritated and mad upon our infirm progress. 

Dear workload, I'm sorry, I just can't find the enthusiasm to work today. I'm gonna regret this later.

Time Flies

I have never liked working.  To me a job is an invasion of privacy.  ~Danny McGoorty

Today is 17th October 2012 where it marks something to my engineering career. I've been marrying Perwira Al-Shura Consulting Engineers Sdn Bhd as civil engineer for a year now. Being here for a year is something magnificent after considering the company tough circumstances. To date, this is the longest workplace I ever worked and it's worth all the time, effort, throbbing headache, palpitation, crying (as my ex girlfriend was left me during my early involvement in this firm - imagine how badly did I cry haha) and of course lack of sleep.

During my tenure so far, I've through a lot of memories regardless the sweet and the terrible one. It's hard to forget those days especially the hard and difficult moments that I've had endured. I don't expect to work in here until now even I keep complaining every single day about my workload. On another side, I'm glad enough that my time is pretty much occupied with those workloads that I get to enjoy my working life rather than concentrating on my personal life.

My overtime exceeds than 500 hours over my 12 HECTIC months of service here. It's way fantastic compare with other staff members. However, no extra fees being paid upon the extra efforts that I've shown. No special rewards as well except the increment due to my confirmation as company permanent staff. It's also the signal for the probation period was over. That is the terrible thing that ever happened in my career so far I guess. Despite that, I'm glad for myself after be able to go this far. Over 500 extra working hours is like a record that complicated to break. Bravo! Haha, hopeless me..:P

Working under pressure is a normal circumstance for me now, insufficient of manpower doesn't make thing any better when the workloads keep increasing from time to time. Guys, this firm was like a terrible engineering training field to me. Most of the working hours is a brainstorming session. Sometimes, it can't be helped to skip my lunch for the sake of my work. Not just that, I sacrificed a lot of things as well such as money, my quality time with family and friends. Even my ex girlfriend was being one of the victim of my commitments. Sob..sob..sob

Even I keep complaining and whining, I'm still grateful for what I have today. I gain a lot of experiences here where hardly to obtain anywhere. I judge this based on the awarded projects where the firm gets to handle. I'm grateful to have officemates and support staffs which are very friendly, very open minded, easy to communicate and very cooperative. Thanks for being nice to me. I look forward to stay longer in here, but it can't be helped if I'm being offered a new job with handsome income and benefits, I shall grab that :). Im not that stupid to let it go!
