All the best....

"All the best.." The most favoured wish I've received from colleagues and friends....

It's not going to be an easy environment yet it might be a good opportunity to enhance my credibility and capability...

I've packed all the necessary stuff...

I've made a double check that nothing "necessary" will be left behind or forgotten...

It's a week of intensive learning period in my career...so it is very important to ensure I'm fully ready to face the possibility...I would not want the Management to think that the trip is a waste once I got back to Penang..

I've had couple of surprises happened in Penang office since earlier this month...well, some of it was expected though...one of our developer has tendered his resignation letter and it was "timely"...due to lack of responsibility...and it was a good decision from him by accepting a job employment offer with government sector in KL...where he might not need to worry about performance review etc (sorry but it's a fact that most "Malaysia Boleh" can only "Malaysia Boleh" in government sector....) It's been more than a year and nothing seemed to motivate the developer from avoiding to make silly mistakes...

I'll reach (if no delay) London on 19th March at 10pm UK time; 20th March 6am MY time...staying at The Old Red Lion Hotel in room 6.

I've received my work schedule which stated that I will accompany our Trainer Manager to visit one of our customers in East London on 25th and 27th March (a day visit) and will be in the office on other days..

20th - 22nd March were scheduled free time for me...which I've already received some joke-kind-of-invitation for an outing at nearby bar during weekends...let's see how the joke-kind-of-invitation goes when I come to the office on 20th to collect the company's car...haha..

It's 10 past 2am now..I shouldn't be awake at this time when I should have been resting...

In the end.."All the best Wel.." - trying to motivate myself...haha...

Upheavel..

It all started due to tiredness...I fell sick since my return on Tuesday..I had a flu followed by sore throat then ended up with high fever...thankfully, I managed to control it down before it went bad..currently in the midst of recovering...

I had good and not so good news..I don't want to talk about not so good news though..let's put it aside as I think there's a brighter side of it..there's a plan for that and hopefully it will go as smooth as it may...

Good news..I've just confirmed my next trip somewhere at the end of this month...I've been scheduled to make a week period of business+leisure trip to UK and had been discussing the matter with the manager since my return...I don't prefer to go details about it..end of story..I will be flying on the 19th and return to Penang on the 28th...

Earlier, I was planning to postpone the trip to early April as I had a quite tight budget for my own personal expenses...but once I've listened to what the manager has to say...I'm happy to proceed with the dates....

I'm sure most of us aware that the British Pound Sterling is not as cheap as Singapore Dollar and nor Brunei Dollar....having said that, I'm happy to know that the company will provide a car, a mobile phone, cash allowance (not sure how much for 7 days though) most likely, all expenses are covered by the company excluding the things I'm about to buy for personal purposes..the office is located at a country side area of Haverhill, Suffolk...the nearest town is Cambridge which is about 30 minutes drive...

Several questions had been asked especially the workplace environment as I will be working under several big fellas there (pressure is higher than usual) their work ethic and habits...also, I might be invited to a trip with our guys in Sales or Trainer Department to visit customer's office...be it for demo or troubleshooting and perhaps other reason...the main purpose of the trip is basically a learning trip where I will be exposed to business approach and procedures...

Look forward to meet and get to know the colleagues in the UK....if things go as planned, hopefully I'll manage some of my free time with friends in London (Ms. Flo and Mr. Guz)...

Untitled..

There have plenty of things to say but forgive me..I just don't feel like penning them down at this moment or never...I'm just tired and wanted to get some rest before continuing my normal life..this will do.....

1. I just got back 5 hours ago...after a tiring trip but eventually ended up pretty well with good chance to experience a new Airbus 340-300....

2. I boarded a new AirAsia's Airbus plane from KL-Penang (refer No.1) The trip to Penang was its first commercial flight (according to the Captain)....it's a big plane (almost as big as Boeing 777) There have facilities (buttons, LCD screen etc) at every seat to watch movie, listen to music etc...we were given a portable media player for testing purposes...the plane has Business and Economy classes with 3 rows seat (2-3-2)

3. I missed a scheduled flight KK-Penang at 7am that morning...I was late about 5-10 minutes to check in...I ended up with new tickets from KK-KL then KL-Penang...thanks to the sponsorship; my bro..(sepa suruh relax-relax jalan dari rumah..haha...if I were drunk, reasonable juga tapi we both were 100% sober exlcuding the tiredness..)

4. I resume work tomorrow...meeting up with our manager who had just returned from UK on 2nd March....he will resume his work as Manager at Penang office...

5. There might have another trip somewhere in March or early April for me....I'll be on 14 hours journey, a week period of work+leisure (depending on budget) related trip...

6. I'm officially making my way to a 'pokai' status...returned to Sabah twice in a month...inevitable trip though, so I wouldn't mind as it makes me felt happy to take part...

7. My Aunt Tina has left us....I'm sad but I just don't know how to react towards the feeling...a big lost to my family...she'll definitely be missed...love you..

8. I was half blind during the KK-KL-Penang trip....I had to take out my right eye's lens because I felt pain due to lack of sleep...both my eyes were 'pedih' actually but it would not be a good idea to take both out...nanti silap kapal pula...

9. Straight away went out (once arrived home) to buy the new House Season 5 Part 1 (3 DVD - 15 episodes) currently watching..

10. First time watching movie at Centre Point...The Legend of Chun Li...I waited over an hour trying to watch it at the cinema opposite the round about, next to the old Cathay building but the show was cancelled (Apparently there was only me wanted to watch it there)

11. Good to be back to my own crib...resting and hopefully I can dream of 4D or Jackpot 6/49 is even better...
