Birthday Wish List 2017??

Last few weeks ago, I received my first birthday gift of the year. They accepted me to stay in Red Dot for another 5 years! It was hassle to complete the formalities. But, I do not need to be worry so much if I get retrench. Nowadays, it is not easy to survive in a big multinational company. Work hard is not the best way to survive. We have to be smart and react well in all situations. From my previous posts, it is advisable not to trust a person easily. Readers may think that I become more 'kiasi' but this is what I am facing now. Too many liars out there. Yesterday, I received my second birthday gift. I feel that I was lucky to get the opportunity although I screwed up the video and talked a lot of craps in front of five panelists during the interview. Now, I have to wait for them to finalise the location soon because there will be a lot of preparations need to be done. There is no wish list for this year. I just hope all well ends well.

272nd Post

Nowadays, most of the people that I known like to say that I am rich due to I am working in Red Dot and they think that I got a lot of money to buy everything and should treat them a meal. Frankly speaking, I dislike the way they think about this.

2nd Anniversary

I have been in Red Dot for 2 years. Time flies fast. I am happy that I made the right choice to work as an engineer here although sometimes I feel I am lone ranger. I learnt a lot of things here. From technical knowledge to life learning. Currently I am having a dilemma. I have to study the new design codes which it is not easy to handle with. Nowadays, I do not believe people much. There are too many liars out there. Anyhow, life moves on...

270th Post

Few days ago, I suppose to attend a meeting in London but I could not travel due to work. I opted for a web-conferencing with the other apprentice colleagues. It was easy to do web-conferencing but I faced a problem. The connection was disconnected few times. Half way through, so sudden I heard the siren. The meeting was on hold as they need to change the venue. There was an attack at the nearby. I was so lucky that I do not attend the meeting there. Honestly, the world is getting worst. I hope the peace will restore back soon.

Lunar New Year 2017

I had a good break on last week Lunar New Year celebration. It was a memorable celebration. I had a KFC for my reunion dinner for the first time. Haha!

I went to the Pearl of the Orient on the third day. It was an annual trip, to visit my relatives there. I was sad when I reached the Gurney Drive. There is a huge development there. Land reclamation is on going. No more nice sea view to see.

When I reached back to KL, I met my old friends, ex-schoolmates, ex-unimates and ex-colleagues in different time. It was not easy to make an arrangement with them but I am glad that in the end we still can meet up. Most of them changed in a way. Time flies fast. 1 week off is not sufficient for me.

268th Post

First week of work for 2017, it was awful. Work load is increasing and never ends. Few colleagues started to ask about my treat meal for them after they know about my new job position. I do not know why this type of culture happens in everywhere. Human are greed. Hopefully the next 357 days will be better for me. 

Here we are
Riding the sky
Painting the night with sun
You and I, Mirrors of light
Twin flames of fire
Lit in another time and place

First Post for 2017

I neglected my blog again. There were a lot of things happened for the past few months ago. I had a good pre-birthday celebration with two of my unimates on last October, who share the same birthday with me. Same birthday, same year, same university, same home country. We had fate meet up in Red Dot again. I hope we can do it again on next year. I celebrated my birthday alone for the first time in the Red Dot. I did not tell anyone about it. Loneliness was tough, but I managed it well.

From left, civil, electrical & mechanical engineers.

I was fortunate that I was selected for the scheme and traveled to London alone for the first time on last November. 14 hours direct flight is not easy. I was sat at the window seat and it was not convenient for me to go out for a walk, Nevertheless, it was my first ride on A380. Smooth journey and less noise. Reached London too early. I managed to visit few of the famous places. The weather was chilling but polluted. I had jet lag and I could not sleep well. I looked like a zombie. I was excited when I visit the institution headquarters and meet the other members. I need to improve my communication skill. They talked like 'Wow'.  I think I let the pictures below to show how I felt there. 4 days and 2 nights in London. Hehe..

The Big Bird, A380

The British Museum, a must place to visit

When I back from the trip, few of my colleagues keep teasing me that I will get promotion soon. They keep saying till December. Actually I dislike it. Human tongue is poisonous. I wish to stitch their mouth if I can. Haha! I  Last month I was a bit busy with works and I scolded the contractors until they do not dare to call me. Should I continue with this way? Hardly to meet friends nowadays when I back to my hometown. Most of them are busy. It is better to spend more time with family. Christmas 2016 was a wonderful time for me. I managed to spend my time family and welcome my new family member before I go back to the Red Dot. 

As for the new year countdown, I went back to the same spot to watch the fireworks alone. Mesmerised...

Have a blessed New Year 2017. Hopefully I can make it through..
