I am back!

Yes! Finally I am back from Denmark ( well actually I came back week ago but just plain lazy to update myย  blog :))

It has been more than 2 months since my last post, time really flies! The last 2 months was one of the highlights of my 2008 experience ๐Ÿ™‚ Got a chance to visit my new company’s HQ in Denmark, meeting lots of new and interestingย  colleagues from many different parts of the world, managed to find some free time to travel to different places in Europe… all in all it has been a very good experience for me.

Anyway, this post is sort of a quick shout, just to let people know that I am back to the world of blogging (mmm… actually I don’t have that many fans at the moment, but at least I have the Tan sisters ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers girls! )

I am still in the middle of sorting out and touching up the photos that I had taken during my trip in Europe, few thousands of them…. ๐Ÿ˜

Anyway, you can visit my Picasa website for a quick glance of some of the photos which I posted there. The link is as below:

That’s all for now, will post more when I have the time for it.

Cheers!

By the way, the WordPress’s new Dashboard is really cool! They are getting better and better! Good job guys! Just hope that one that they will release an offline blog editor then I can blog much more frequently… finger crossed!

Pre-marriage syndrome?

I am still having the giddiness which has been bothering me for almost 3 weeks! Went to hospital to see an ENT yesterday and he prescribes some medicine for me. Hopefully after completing the medicine it will recover. I feel very tired everyday, something like motion sickness. It affects my concentration especially at work.

One of my net friend says that I might be getting pre-marriage syndrome. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I doubt so ๐Ÿ˜›

This Saturday will fly off to Kuching, then Monday will be having our wedding registration, and Tuesday is the wedding photo shot day. I hope my giddiness will go away otherwise I don’t know how I can go through the photo shot properly.

Will be staying in Kuching until end of next week, hopefully before I return to Melaka I will be able to choose the photos to be developed.

Cheers!

Been lagging in updating my blog.

Have not been feeling well lately, not sure why. Having this dizziness although not very serious but quite annoying. Reminds me of the vertigo sickness which I had several years ago. It took me several months to fully recover. Hopefully this time around it is not vertigo and hopefully this weekend I can rest more at home and it will just go away ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, I bought a scrapbook last Sunday which I want to pass to my colleagues for them to write some notes for me to keep as memento ๐Ÿ™‚ I got this idea when I read an article on newspaper about the autograph which we used to write when graduate from primary or secondary school. I want to remember my colleagues and friends here as they really enriched my life in many different ways. They were very shocked actually when hearing from me that I am going to leave the company soon. In their eyes I belong to the group of people that 100% loyal employee, hehe.

Initially I wanted to write the preface, but after checking my handwriting again I felt that it’s better to print it out rather than handwriting ๐Ÿ™‚ Nowadays very seldom write so handwriting is very stiff… hehe… So I browse the internet to get some idea of what to write onto the preface, then copy-paste-modify-decorate… and tada….. here’s my preface on the scrapbook.

I like the font very much, it’s called SAGINAW and you can get it here for free. The cute boy waving goodbye clipart is cute too ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, let’s hope they will write something nice and funny, then I will share it here ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh ya, should begin my countdown to my ‘departure’ from this company. My last day will be on 21st October hence there’s another 29 days to go. Feeling both excited and sad…..

Cheers!

Everybody lies…

I like to watch Dr. House. In the drama Dr. House used to say ‘everybody lies’. YEP, its true, everyone, including politician, either from government or opposition, they lie and lie and lie! Everybody in the office was not in working mood yesterday, which is 16th Sep. The ‘holy’ day according to opposition leader Mr. Anwar that they will topple the government. Although I think initially most of the people does not think it is possible, but as 16th Sep getting nearer, Mr. Anwar is feeding lots of statement to the public, eventually everyone starts to believe that that’s the D-Day for the government. Everyone awaits a new era of Malaysian political scene. Well what do you know….nothing, nothing really happened!

So, back to square now, I think the only person benefited from all these huh-hah is our DPM, now he got the Finance Minister portfolio, well that’s nothing new as my gf already held that portfolio long ago ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am not sure how Mr. Anwar going to convince the public after this, his reputation is totally shattered from my view, and I think a lot of people share the same feeling. Hopefully he will prove us wrong but at the moment it seems very unlikely.

Well, it sucks!

I am totally lost…

I am damn totally lost! I don’t know what else can happen in this country. It seems like Malaysia (and of course Malaysian) has becomes a laughing stock in the eye of the world. Within few days so many things had happend:

1) Majority of BN MP bring sent to Taiwan for so called agricultural study, then followed by PR MP who was sent to ‘communicate’ with the ‘potential’ rebels within BN MP. Why have to travel all the way to Taiwan during fasting month ? Who’s money they are using ? What benefits we can get from this trip ?

2) The detainment of a reporter, a blogger and an opposition MP under ISA act, and the lame excuse given by the home minister. The reporter was released 24 hours later an again some lame excuses was given, which even my grandma will laugh from the grave (really, seriously it’s true)

Damn it, what happened to Malaysia ? Now it has turned into a circus with everyone trying to put up a good show to ‘entertain’ the crowd. How I wish if I can leave this country for several years and ignore all the nonsense. then come back later, if it does not self-destruct first.

Really speechless today, what a shame!

Funny post from one of the ‘pendatang’ :)

All the huh-hah about the pendatang issue is coming to and end finally (hopefully). But one of the pendatang among us (Kenny Sia) got some funny post. Go and have a look:

1) Chinese Squatters

2) Ah Mad Strikes Back

Damn funny.

Anyway, all these ‘commotions’ over the pendatang issue for the past few weeks had me wondered if really the gomen going to fall come 16th Sept, will all of us, the pendatang be facing another 513 ? Scary thoughts…..

God bless us.

Resignation

Yeh, finally tendered my resignation letter today. Yesterday I had a small discussion with my local boss and he agrees with my decision. He feel that the new company might be able to offer a better job prospect too. So today I get my boss and HRA GM to sign my resignation letter. Huh, quite nervous because this is first time I submit a resignation letter ๐Ÿ™‚ Guess there’s a first time for everything.

Once I get it signed and submit to HRA, I have a mixed feeling. Feel sad that this moment came earlier than I initially thought. On the other hand I felt excited with the new roles and responsibility as well as new working culture that I am going to face soon. I told a few of my closer colleague about my resignation and they were quite sad about it. It touches me when i felt the sincere sadness and concern from the colleagues. Well they do understand that If I am going to achieve something I have to move on.

My resignation notice is 3 months (huh, wonder why so long). Anyway my boss said its ok for me to offset my notice period with my balance leave. Guest what, I have 44.5 days of balance leave! hehe…. That’s the good point of not taking leaves because you can use it to offset your notice period. After I check and recheck my schedule I think my last day in the office will be around 20th Oct. Then I have about 1 week+ gap before joining new company. I have to settle some arrangement related to our weddings. The new company wanted to sent me for training once I join in Nov, hence in Nov and Dec I think I will not have the time to arrange my personal matters, so better to do it soon.

Iย  can’t imagine how am I going to react when saying goodbye to my colleagues on my last day. Will I cry ? Aiyo really can’t imagine….. hehe… will tell you more once the time comes.

Cheers!
