Time Goes By But We Stay Still...

We finally come to the end of 2011...few more weeks come the year 2012..the final circle of the earth as what the Mayans' Calender predicted..

Friday, 16th Dec 2011 is my last day in office for the year 2011 and resume work 9th Jan 2012...3 weeks of holiday and the longest ever (so far) in my career... It's about time!!

What did I do in 2011???

Career
1. Sick Leave - None
2. Emergency Leave - None
3. Promotion - no comment
4. Salary Increment - no comment

Travel & Living
1. Marathon Runs - Energizer Night Race (11 Km), Malakof Run (8 Km), Unity Run (6 Km), Penang Hill Climb, Beach Run (6 Km) and the highlight was Penang Bridge International Marathon (21 Km)
2. Fishing Trips - Kerachut Beach (Penang), Teluk Nipah Beach (Pangkor) and Under The Penang Bridge
3. Travel - Langkawi and Pangkor Islands
4. Lifestyle - Beer Fest (weekend after weekend)
5. Accident - 3cm diameter mark on forehead

I'm now thinking of a little twist to the Travel & Living for the year 2012...I'm going for fishing! Running has been fun yet fishing is much more relaxing...I get to drink beer whilst fishing but not running!! I may as well join local fishing competitions..no one knows where your luck is until you try..kan..kan...moreover fishing prizes are known as pricy! kalau dapat pancing ikan karuk di laut mungkin buli menang 1st prize juga :-O

Right, don't ask how I got the 3cm diameter mark on forehead...it was shit that happened

I can't remember when was the last time I felt excited about going back to Sabah...I never did but this time I think there's something to look forward... it'll be a little different because I've got a task of being my Bro's best man...I guess I'd be his bodyguard?? saves for drinking?? Let's hope everyone enjoy...

Lastly, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2012

Night Run @ Sepang International Circuit

I'm feeling a little bit excited about this coming weekend!

Yay...I'm going to participate in the 11 Km Energizer Night Run 2011 (ETA 02:00:00) at Sepang International Circuit, 16 April 2011 at 20:00...Can you imagine how rare the opportunity is to run there?

My training regime is quite alright this year but that doesn't mean running 11 km distance is not a challenge at all...

I have successfully completed the recent 8 Km Malakof Run 2011 with an official time of 01:00:01 (ETA was 01:00:00) It was a disappointment due to s silly mistake as I did not maintain the running pace which then causes muscle pain (not cramp though)

So...it's Sepang International Circuit!! I'm expecting my whole body to be more aerodynamic to tackle each corner and turn...I may have to buy few cans of cold beer to minimize the possibility of overheating engine block (before and after race)...let's just hope Sepang International Circuit is ready to welcome me..hehe..

* Driving all the way from Penang to KL this time

DropBox File Sharing

Hi peeps…

How many of you have heard of a file sharing host named DropBox? I’m pretty sure RapidShare, SharedFile and etc are common but they are nothing like DropBox….I’ve been using DropBox for almost a year by now…

It was recommended by one of our customers about 11 months ago…I needed to get a copy of their SQL database as well as the software application folder to reproduce the reported fault/bug at their end…at first, I was a bit skeptical of the security and managing the files but after a while of using the ‘service’ I kind of like it very much as it is very easy to use and organise.

Having an account with DropBox is like managing your own database; you can create and share folder with other DropBox users by inviting them to the shared folder...deleting files and removing access right are easy as a single click on the appropriate button!



DropBox Features

Apart from file sharing, DropBox offers services like File Sync, Online Backup, Web Access and Mobile Device Access (iPhone and BlackBerry)So after almost a year with all the satisfaction I’ve got using DropBox….it is highly recommended…

I think the highlight is a free 2GB free space for a free account and up to 100GB of space for paid account! I have so far tried the File Sharing service so if any of you guys have tried the others please do share…knowledge is power!

Cheers!

Good Start

Let's start the year with a big YE YE..

We had our 1st 2011 company meeting (Penang) yesterday and timely when the CEO was here visiting the branch...

As usual, he updated us with the company's target and plans for 2011..apart from updates, there were also announcements being made publicly and privately....guess the private part is very obviously la kan..salary increment!!!

We were craving for salary increment which we would usually be informed in Sep 2010 (junior staffs were asking and as usual there were always a rumour or speculation to entertain your trust and confidence with the company) I knew there was going to be a very good news but I did not expect to be this good for me personally....I've been with the company for 5 years so I'm being rewarded with a one off bonus as well as an additional 1 day off per annum commencing this year (this gives me additional 2 days off per annum) This year I've been granted additional 5 days off thus making my Manager a little worry? I guess he is...he did mention this after the meeting that I have too many day off this year excluding the fact that I only work 4 days a week...moreover, I had been granted days off (twice) since the beginning of 2011 by the Management without my consent..haha...it is not that we have more man power at this moment though...coincidentally these 2 days off were given when the pay was triple!!! The Manager jokingly said, I have too much money (The truth is, the Management tries to be fair to each employees in order to have a balanced triple pay a year..or else some body may request to work during triple pay just to get ahead of others) Well I wish I have too much money but thanks to God am quite happy I'm surviving the wild world with my current financial status...How's the salary increment? let's put it this way...encouraging!

Can't wait for the Bonus! I'm thinking of installing additional strut bar to my sport car or perhaps I will save it for something much more relevant - Holiday & Traveling!

I thank God, my parents' prayer and of course I thank myself for continuing to work hard in life!!

*Now thinking of winning Jackpot this year! If this were to happen, 2011 will be the greatest year to date then
