This Sunday is a great Sunday indeed. Not working and no calls from company nor clients. Great great day..so far.

I hadn't been blogging for quite some time already. Sometimes I have this great need to write something down, but when I turn on the PC, I'd rather be facebooking instead. Such is the power of FB! Or, I'd be watching some great performances on youtube (or some funny baby videos that I like alot..hehe).

This is not going to be a picture-filled post, though I really have quite a number of photos I'd like to share. Today, we are going to talk about something serious--your life! For those who are unaware, I just turned 25 last 2nd of Nov 2009. I'm like what..quarter-of-a-century old?

Have you had those moments when you thought, "Oh man..I'm not young any more..I should have achieved something already!!!" I'm having those moments more and more lately. Jiin mentioned that she doesn't want to be a cheap labour and urban poor any more. I guess she must've had those moments too. I'm sure nobody wants to be a cheap labour but if you really REALLY feel despised on being treated unequal of your talent and true capability, you should be doing something about it.

#1 You could start being your own boss!
Wait, should I be opening a shop and selling something? But..I have no modal, renting a place, electricity and water, everything is money.

#2 Fear not, because of the great INTERNET, you could sell something online!
But, wtf, everybody's doing this already! What are you going to sell? Teenagers clothes with lots of fancy photos and stuffs? Erm, not sure if that's gonna work these days.

You know what, all of these are excuses. There's this devil in your mind called "Lazy" which is influencing you and telling you that you are doing great at whatever you are doing. Why try something new? It might be risky and dangerous! To tell the truth, this devil is quite strong in my mind. I hate it when he's limiting what I should try or do..but what he's saying sounds so "true" (wtf, the last sentence actually rhymes!).

Ok, let's say I do not have talent of being a boss. Then I shall be the best employee ever and climb up the corporate ladder. You know what, a new Regional Business Unit Manager aka Big Boss will be coming to work in my company soon and I heard he's only 34! Of course he is angmoh and sometimes that helps too but I guess somehow, he must have something extra that propels him to the top at the shortest time.

I'm in the midst of finding this quality!!! How can you be a top performer, where you will not be envied by your boss, and your boss will so appreciate you that he will give you a promotion? Erm..how how? Should we stay in the same company for a long time to climb the ladder, or should be jump here and there when there's opportunity?

HOW???

How??

how?

...

..

You get my point yet? Hahaha..

VERY GOOD! GUYS, REMEMBER:
Type OUT from the respective mobile number and send it to 1994

Small talk: Just came back from lunch with YC, SP, and SP's hubby. I see SP's face, full of happiness. Guess that's what you get when you're married. Really nice seeing you ppl after so long!

Hi there, long time didn't mem-blog. This Merdeka holiday came at the rightest time. Gave me abit of time to do some personal things.

Anyway, HAPPY MERDEKA! We must be 1Malaysia ok? At least 8% GDP growth every year till 2020 to achieve developed country status. Stop cutting cow's head ok? Malaysia Boleh!

So, I just returned from Shanghai actually..expecting a quiet and peaceful long weekend when suddenly, unwanted call from company received. I see the caller I already know d, FUCK. To make the story short, there is this problem at site(a really simple one but nobody knows/wants to solve it) which requires my immediate presence to resolve.

Wah, sungguh tak cekap la, nice Sunday morning need be at customer's place at 8am in PD. Told Elaine and my family about it. They weren't too happy but understood my situation. Because I know the nature of the problem at site so I promised that it'll be a quick one and I would come home in the afternoon. After that, I went out for my cyber/yumcha session with the guys. It was a real nice evening until eventually goddamned unlucky Arsenal lose to the CCB ManU. I was feeling moody alright.

When I returned home, my parents told me they were gonna fetch me down to PD 2ml while they go jalan-jalan there. I was like wtf, noneed la, i not small kid anymore, i could drive there myself la. They insisted, saying they wan go jalan-jalan coz boring at home, long weekend etc. I eventually gave in. =)

How many of you guys got kena fetch to work by ur parents b4? Haha. I can proudly say I HAVE and totally not ashamed at all! We left home at 6am and all the way I kept saying thanks to them coz teman me on a boring job assigment. We stopped by Seremban for breakfast and reached PD site at 8. All in all, the work was around 15minutes and rest of the time was waiting for them to retransfer the power. Left working place at 10:30am. Hahaha..

Mom was telling how they jalan'ed the whole PD during that time. She confirmed to me that PD beach is confirm condemned to max. Impossible to swim in it seeing how dirty the water was. Couldn't agree more. We left straight for home and managed to fetch my bro and sis for lunch. They just woke up wtf. (I really terikut how sweatlee blogs coz really cute to put a wtf unintentionally at the end of some sentences)

The conclusion is: I'm glad that a nice family Sunday has seemed undisturbed by my impromptu job assignment. And I am super happy, lucky, and grateful that I have the wonderfulest and bestest family ever. If I was to be reborn, I would like to be reborn into this same family~~

=P

p/s: If you have not already read this.



Note to self: Today, I bought something very important in my life. I shall remember 1 Aug 2009~~

WE IS SINCERELY INVITES YOU WAN..REALLY WAN!

Bugger, like that my UTM can't get APEX standard and do some technical glitches with student admission la. Sien.

Recently I had a business trip to Tampa, Florida, US of A..and man..that is a place really FAAAARRRRRRRRRR from home.

I was away for a total of 7 days and working days were 3 days. I spend 4 days just travelling(flights + waiting time)..WTF!!!

I had to go to Singapore > Frankfurt > New York > Tampa. The stop-overs are because MAS doesn't have an economy class flight from KL to New York on weekends..wtf.
However, I took Singapore Airlines and I must say..it's really good(from flight services to loyalty programme)! Asia airlines CONFIRM beat western airlines anytime.

Today, i'm gonna share on the F&B services on the long trip i've endured. Because the trip is so fucking long, you get to eat alot of meals on the plane..and some of them are actually pretty good! I even took some photos of them and scanned the menu for your perusal. Do enjoy..


When only I can sit Business Class?


We'll begin with Supper [Singapore to Frankfurt]


Grilled beef steak served with roasted assorted vegetables and rosemary flavoured potato.
Can you spot the red wine?


Before touch-down [Singapore to Frankfurt]


Fried noodle with honey glaced roast pork, vegetables and mushroom


Breakfast and Light meal [Frankfurt to New York]


Scrambled egg served with bacon, mushroom and hash brown potato


Chicken supreme served with buttered vegetables and sauteed farfalle pasta

During my short stay on US soil, didn't really get to see nor do much. Took the below photo of the hotel we stayed though..


Damn like those cheap motels we see in the movies right?
Actually the room is not bad la.
USD89 a night(not including tax).

Wah, super attracted to this 8tv mandarin news newscaster --- SUPER CUTIE!







If managed to get home before 8pm sure hope she'll be the newscaster for the nite..hehe.

Some facts about her:
Ong holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Industrial Engineering) degree from University Technology of Malaysia. “During my industrial training, I realised an engineer’s life was not what I wanted so, I gave newscasting a try. Ong, who hails from Butterworth and has two younger sisters, likes to read, dance and swim, but says she rarely has time for that now.

OMFG...UTM!!! WHICH BATCH?!?


Wah..super cute for a newscaster..syiok!

Wow, i'm amazed..

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of update but since coming back from Finland, i hadn't had anytime to rest!!!


Was in Bintulu for a week and will be going to the States the week after next week for a week. (<-- four "week" word in a sentence, how about that)

Ok, so to go to the US of A i need to apply for a visa. In one of the forms(of so many f**king forms), it's stated "list all education institutions and contact number". Well, fine. At least I thought it was easy to obtain these infos. But heck, I couldn't find the phone number of my alma mater - SMK La Salle Klang!

Couldn't google it, not in the school magazine(to my amazement!), and not even in the sijil berhenti sekolah oh. In the end berjaya found it here.

To others out there searching this as well(haha, god knows why u need it), its:
Tel: 03-33717469
Fax: 03-33736950

p/s: I did not actually call to verify whether the number is still  active.

"Princess Aiko"

Heya! Next Friday going to touchdown in Malaysia. Can't wait!

Received an email from Phang yesterday. The title was "Princess Aiko of Japan".
I really like to read Phang's forwarded emails because they are always very delightful/fei/pat!

And so i was reading the content of this mail which "supposedly" contain pictures of the first child of Their Imperial Highnesses Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako. Then half way I thought, "Wait a minute, Princess Aiko is look like this meh?" So as usual, i went to seek my great sifu - Google and "he" kinda shown me some of the Princess Aiko's photos that "he" owns. AHA, i guess Phang's email was fake.

Nevertheless, the girl in the pictures was so CUTE that i selected 3 photos to be shown here. I really like children..especially cute ones! Hahaha..
Here you go..


"Mama, see see, I am doggie.."


"Erm, I'll have what mama is having..it looks yummy!"


"Mama, you sure this is cola? Coz I'm feeling dizzy.."

OMFG, SO CUTE!

Hi there, dunno why, suddenly got feel wan blog, so here it is.


Today was a benefitial day. I learned about IEC61850 Goose Messaging in training! Haha, you really don't need/want to know about that.

Today's a shiny day as well. Shinniest i must say, ever since i've been here. The snow are starting to melt. They were saying that we are lucky to be here during this period because we could see two seasons in one trip - end of winter and beginning of spring.

So my training life here is like:
1. Wake up 6:30am and 7:30am take bus to company
2. Training course starts and it ends at 4pm
3. Take bus back to apartment
4. Check office mail(Malaysia) and start do office stuffs(my gawd, i hate this. training here but still need support homeland)
5. Dinner
6. Back to do office stuff if still not done yet
7. Online online online (facebook, digg, youtube, you-name-it)

As you can see, life like this is quite the sien. Looking forward to the weekend though. Last week we went skiing and this week they are planning to go to Sweden using ferry. Wow! Ok, will see how it progresses.

So back to the title "Bored in a foreign land". Gosh, i miss Elaine and my family alot. So kesian her alone there nobody teman. Really feel she is very wei da. Come here(central region) work so we could be together always. She got an offer to go Penang but she refused(but now think good also la, semicon industry situation now). Then the baddest thing i did - dump her in Company P and went to Company A. Haih, dunno wat to say. Me = bad bad bad. Luckily she is quite well compensated there(aha!) so she's not complaining much. Well, she doesn't ever complain. Such good and kind girl she is.
>> Wakaka, I think i type more of this u all will muntah so i'd better stop here. I pro in jump topic, see how i do it now.

So mostly when i'm in the apartment i look at the screen of my beloved company laptop - a Lenovo T60. I really "lap" you very much. You were there with me through "thick and thin". Wakaka.

I dunno about you guys but i use Google Reader to keep track of all the blogs/feeds I read. In this tool, there's this mechanism/algorithm which searches for the stuffs you read and automatically recommends something that you might be interested in. You know, like the youtube recommendation thingy. So i was browsing and i saw this:



Well, since i have so much time/i'm so bored so i clicked it.

I was brought to this site of a wonderful young lady(omg, i am sibeh old d) which is studying in the States. This is the type of blog where she tells about her daily life, her fashion style, how she's so in love with her bf, etc. IT'S SO NICE!!! It's simple, easy to read(with lots of pics) and keeps bring back the memories when Elaine and I was studying in UTM. Haiyor, think of it oso happy =). We used to stick together and read blogs like this(we are sibeh 8 ppl). Seeing young couples together like this makes me very happy leh, y ar?

I steal one photo from her flickr to show u all. Hope she doesn't mind.


HOW CUTIE!!!

Seriously cannot resist girls with cheeks like these. Tarik like that really damn nice. =P
Hope they kekal long long, get married, and have cute children!

Oh, can't believe it. Type so long d, just 10pm here, wtf. There was one day that I was really bored till kns, I went to sleep at 6:30pm.
