Twenty twelve in review

This is very common post where I want to review what had happened to me the whole 2012. I think 2012 had been a pretty amazing year. Career wise, I am satisfied with what I do. My work no doubt involve a lot of stress, but you tell me what kind of work is really stress free? My work also had given me the opportunity to meet many great people of the industry which was a huge advantage for me. My work also had send me to various places in Malaysia, most of it to places that I have never been to. Enough bragging about work.

2012 was about first timers. I have visited several places and done several activities for the first time in 2012.
List of places visited for the first time : Tawau, Redang Island, Terengganu, Sandakan, Perak, Pahang and Melaka. And visited Melaka completed my list to visit all states in Malaysia. 2012 was also the year I flew the most so far. According to my Air Asia travel logs, I flew more than 20 times this year alone. I travel a lot. By air and roads.

End of 2012 …

Christmas 2012

Hi people.. Well it's just few days past Christmas so I hope it is not too late to wish Merry Christmas! This is the last day of 2012, I know i haven't update much. My last post was in April 2012. That is terrible. Back in 2010-2011 era I blog like crazy. I still write but everything end up in my drafts. So before the year ends, I would like to put down my thought on Christmas nowadays.

Christmas celebration was often associated with joy. As December begins, you often see the shopping malls started to putting up their Christmas tree and setting up beautiful decorations. Besides shopping malls, airports, restaurants and hotels also doing the same thing. Not forgotten all sorts of Christmas songs started to fill the atmosphere. No doubt all this set up my Christmas mood.

However, my personal opinions give me the feeling that Christmas had lost its true meaning. Rudolph the Reindeer, Snowman, Santa Claus, Christmas tree, christmas decorations, bells and presents does not display …

What I feel I want to do now.

I am still very tired. I dint take my weekend off and I have been working for 9 days straight. Woke up early and go to bed late, very little time to rest. Been sick but I'm alright. Its payback time now, gonna be lazy and plan to spend long hours on bed. Good thing that I am home.

What I imagine myself doing is relaxing at the beach. Night time. Make a campfire, do some barbeque and drink. Gather some friends and talk about our life. Oh, that would be nice. When can we do that again??

The long working hours and accumulative tiredness.

Hi. Been a very tiring 9 days for me. Conducting seminar and training for the planters and my skin hurt now because I'm burned. And yes I am tanned! Finally the event is over and it went well. I cant wait to have my long rest.

Despite all the tiredness, it is actually fun. Very seldom we get the opportunity to stay together with my fellow colleagues since we're based in different station. Sometimes we do crazy things together too. haha. At certain stage when Im very tired in between the programme, I just took a nap anywhere I am. I just dont care anymore and really cant stand the tiredness and sleepiness. Say it on the sofa in the lecture hall, inside the vehicle, in the meeting room..I slept. Never did that because its unprofessional but I just did. Well, we all did because we're very tired. I'm confident my colleague may have took photo of me while im sleeping, and i believe it gonna leak anytime soon.
Another thing is the food. Been offered and indulging myself with…

This could be my lame update...or not.

Hi. Im back. Lose my passion to blog.
Anyway, lot of events happened since my last post. I travel a lot lately. A minute I was in a different city, minutes later, im in another city. Well, its work. It might be tiring and stressful..yet fun. Still in the process to get a car, presented my project and receive both criticism and constructive comment. Was relieved also as my presentation, I can say went well. And that make me realize that 6 months had passed. I survived this place. Amazing.
Well, yesterday I tuned into Chong Wei. Well not so Chong Wei as I did not manage to walk into the final but got myself the 3rd place instead. Anyway, here the story about how I gotten myself into our company's closed tournament. I seldom play badminton. To me, badminton is a backyard game. I played badminton to fill my free times as kid. I played badminton at my house compound, in the open area where the wind may blow my shuttlecock away. I watch badminton sometimes, and i may get confuse with th…

Caterpillars attack.

Here's the thing, currently I'm facing this pest problem in the nursery Im working at. Pretty bad condition actually. Try to control it, hopefully its under control any time soon. You know, these caterpillars may looks cute and adorable, because they came in many various attractive colours. But I have to hate them. They ate my seedlings and they are dangerous. Sorang nursery workers ritu tersentuh ulat bulu bengkak gila-gila tangan beliau. Oh yes, bertambah lagi satu risiko kerja saya. haha. A lot of risk actually, maybe i'll make one post on all the risk i have to take while working.
Here's what my boss said to me when he saw the serious caterpillars problem in my place.
"Oi..Mel! Ko jaga seedlings ka ternak caterpilars! Boleh buat zoo tau ni! "
Well, here's some photos of this caterpillar attacks. Oh my..they are everywhere.
Ada yang kaler hijau bulu-bulu.
Amboi. Comel nya engkau. Konon-konon pinkish-orange gitu!
Another one with different pattern.
Lagi kaler h…

quick January 2012 recap.

+ Accidentally burned my hand while preparing my dinner. Celaka. Sudah la lapar. Minyak panas terpercik, tindakan refleks tangan lagi terlanggar frying pan, minyak panas tertumpah atas tangan. Pergh..terbaek punya panas. Mesti camtu rasa ikan kena goreng. Time kena, berdenyut tahap dewa segala cakerawala punya sakit, but luckily now, no scar. Yeah.
+ Ada orang bayar dinner free. Weewitt..free meal. awesome.
+ As most of my working hours involve to be in the field, well, happen to meet this long slimey creatures in the estate. The snake. Several times. This work is indeed dangerous. Segala binatang buas pun ada, berbisa pun ada. So I just prayed for my safety ..and security of course. &qu…
