Category Archives: Working Life
The title of this post indicates the age difference between one of my colleague and I. My colleague is 6 years younger than I am so that makes her 18. Last week during our lunch, we happened to talk about relationships and what I see in her is purely innocence. When I was talking to her, her eyes were full of hope, it glistens as she speaks about true love. This ray of hope has been gone in me since forever.
When she found out about my love life, she was taken aback. Then she asked me one very intelligent question:
What if you really, really, really, really, really love that one person? Will you overlook everything and embrace a new relationship?
When I heard that question, I only remembered the times I overlook everything just to be with that one person. Sometimes even if your love is mutual, it may not work out. In the end, my reply to her was simple:
I don’t know if I can love anyone anymore apart from myself.
I am not sure if my answers to some of her questions were too negative or realistic but I guess, there’s a little bit of both. I wanted to be truthful because to me, life isn’t all about the flowers along the way, there are thorns too. Sometimes when I talk to people who are way younger than I am, I don’t know how I should respond to them about life questions. In the end, I have decided to be truthful. My answer can be negative yet realistic but included with real stories from which I have learnt my lessons from.
These days, I tend to be less skeptical when I listen to colleagues who are way older than I am. In fact, I love talking to them because I can learn so much more. After all, they are more experienced in life than I am. Anyway, the innocent 18 years old colleague questioned me again:
Right now, do you still have the slightest feelings for any guys?
My reply is short and simple:
No one is worth it anymore after six years.
As the theme of the film Frozen, sisterly love is now the new love 😉 .
My third year would never be complete without signing up for another semester, well known as the third or special semester. For this semester, most of my course mates and I did our internship. In all honesty, I dreaded internship because I knew there would be reports to be written and with the company that I have chosen, I knew that I would be one busy woman.
Some of my friends think that I am looking for trouble by throwing myself into the hot water because quote them:
Internship is the time to learn how to use the photostat machine like a pro! Work so hard for what, very highly paid ah?
To me, as much as I am reluctant to do this internship, I have decided; since I am jumping into the hot boiling water, let’s swim across and be a survival 😉 .
For my internship, I am grateful that I am given a chance to attend important training as well as a chance to participate in it as well. I count myself lucky that even though I am an intern, no one actually treats me as an intern but as an asset to the company as I am given task in the office like a full timer! =)
In my second week, I went to my company’s little gathering in conjunction of the opening of the new warehouse. During all of this little gathering, it is when I get to see everyone relaxing, smiling and communicating with one another. The scene is actually really warm. At least I don’t see cliques but rather, I see everyone mixing around 🙂 .
My first product training!
Everyone who knows me well enough knows that I have a great dislike for children and pets because I find them troublesome unless it involves a lot of money
[And worth all the trouble/shit]. Oh well, the more you dislike children, the more you will land on a job which involves children. In my case, I am assigned to train children’s product. Yes, you may now laugh and thank you very much for laughing -_-.
I truly believe that one day someone will offer me a full scholarship to further my studies in Early Childhood Education or any program with the word children attached to it.
During my internship, I realized that I cannot fix anything because I don’t see it. Hahaha! Fixing this set of rack as seen in the photo above is a real headache. To be honest, I was really stunned when I saw the rack lying in pieces on the floor. *Gulp* All this kerja susah are not for me yea =P. I rather write 10 000 words essay =P.
Apart from conducting training, I have to evaluate my fellow trainees to ensure that they have been listening to my lecture. Anyway, I feel like a teacher/lecturer when I have to evaluate them. Right, the last thing I ever wanted to do is to teach. One of these days, you people are gonna see me working as teacher/lecturer because the world is just so cute.
The Royale Bintang Damansara hotel! 🙂
I am grateful to be given a chance to stay over at a 5 star hotel as an intern! Hahaha! Mana nak cari kan? =P
Ah… I am also given a chance to present in front of my company’s client and well, I hope I did well =X. This is definitely one of the best experiences that I ever had in my life! =)
Training can be a headache especially when the trainees are not paying attention and when you question them, they give ridiculous answers that can send your blood pressure rocketing. But I will calm myself down by reminding myself that I used to be a very bad student in class because I never pay attention too. No wonder in Form 6 all my teachers wanna strangle and hang me on the moving fan =/.
From my expression in this photo when I zoomed in, I think I am the verge of murdering the trainees for mispronouncing so many words. For example, orange sac is orange sex, world’s number 1 best juice is worst number 1 best juice, orange pulp is orange bulb. Sometimes, their pronunciation makes me feel like banging my head on the wall/table because well, too awesome la.
The less headache part is to teach the trainees how to set up a booth but I always pray that they remember the small details when they are on field and not do anything funky and then point their fingers at me. All the time I emphasize the small details and make them repeat one by one so that they do not suicide/die/mati on field.
Appreciation Dinner at TGIF 😉 !
I truly enjoyed my dinner at TGIF and this dinner makes me feel appreciated because all of us [Management and trainees!] involved for an event worked really hard. It always feels good when your hard work is paid off 🙂 .
Sometimes I have to conduct sample tasting session so that the trainees know the exact taste they should make for their samples. So I guess apart from being a trainer, sometimes we multitask to be a chef/’chef’/waitress =P.
My university supervisor, Dr. Zaidah visited me just to make sure that I am still in one piece and bukan kena cincang 100000001 times =P. Her visit made me miss my faculty [For once] with its pink paints which still look like some klinik kesihatan/pergigian.
Everyone be prepared to laugh again. Because my final product training takes place in the same room, same number of trainee and same product as my first training. Well, let’s end it off where it begins 😉 .
Anyway, enough of work stuff. Let me show you my daily entertainment during my internship:
Sam [UM], Nano [UTM], Neo [UKM] – Interns for special semester from different universities!
The three of us will always try to meet other in the morning and evening to kecohkan the whole coach. I really do believe that people have already recognized us/our voice and hate us so much because we disrupt the peace in the coach =P.
This is what you get on WhatsApp when you miss a train! =P Ahahahahahaha!
Instagram-ing look of the day via WhatsApp to show some lebih-ness. I don’t look lebih in this photo but this gives you an idea of my pretty muka bangun pagi =P.
To Nano, I know right now you wanna punch me because I have no class today. Here, I help you to punch me via this photo. I am so thoughtful. Sama-sama yea xD.
My internship experience overall has been enriching. I have learnt and grew a lot as a person. I have never once regretted entering this company. If I were given a chance to remake my decision, I wouldn’t and I would pick this company 10000001 times. To conclude this post, I am extremely grateful that I have a wonderful on-site supervisor as well as good teammates and some colleagues which I can rely on.
All I am glad is that I managed to swim to the other end of the pole despite being burnt all over. The scars are all worth it when I saw my result online. Some of my friends
mocked me says they do not work as hard as me in order to achieve the same result. Well, at least I worked my way up for it and I knew that I truly deserve the grade that I received.
We may walk different path in order to achieve the same goal but what matters is the lesson that we have learnt and how much we grow as a person. You may share the same grade as me by going through an easier road but how much did you learn and grow? 😉
Again… I am so sorry for this late/slow post. You wanna know why, because I have spent too much time with Libra-s and thus, I have been uhh, overdosed of Libra for a long time and therefore, I cannot make up my mind on what should I blog about but to only blog about Overdose Of Libra [III] .
Overdose Of Libra Part A
I love breakfast with good conversation and I love it especially when friends ask me out for breakfast at McDonald’s or the coffee shop behind old Apex [This is a place full with good memories !]. But actually, breakfast anywhere is just the same with great company around .
Once Nano [The Libra!] treated me McDonald’s coffee [Coupon] and then I treated her McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin With Egg [Coupon] .
Slurp, slurp! But I still prefer the one with the sausage roll .
My face will make a very good advertisement for McDonald’s breakfast poster. Look at my muka baru bangun tidur and best of all, look at my rambut baru bangun tidur . Dearest McDonald’s, please do not hesitate to contact me as long as the pay is good !
Muka baru bangun tidur Nano!
Everyone, this is Nano’s new purse which is inspired by me because I am the first one to start walking around with my money all chuck into a plastic bag and now, Nano improvised my idea and use a ziplock plastic bag .
Overdose Of Libra Part B
Some other day, Nano [The Libra!], Kean Jie [The Libra!] and I went out for our morning breakfast at McDonald’s and then went for a drink at some restaurant near Convent and went for lunch at Station Kopitiam until evening. See la, overdose of Libra for more than half a day =X.
P/S: Content = Overdose Of Kean Jie.
Fatt hau .
This one needs no caption .
Showing off his long hair -_________-…
And we met Tan Wai Kian, my gila partner in crime on public buses [Hahaha! =P] for scaring all the other passengers by sending flying kisses to other! =P He is 3 years younger than me and I can totally imagine what will happen if we are in the same class in school! [SMK Tinggi Kajang = SMK Topsy-Turvy]
He didn’t kiss me. We are just posing for the camera!
This is Nano at Station Kopitiam =D.
Kid’s Meal! I let you guess who order one =P. Nano and Kean Jie cannot play! =P
Overdose Of Libra Part C
Pik Teng [The Libra!], Nano [The Libra!] and I went clubbing ❤ .
HAHAHA! No la, no la, kidding only =P. We went out and lepak together and yea, overdose of Libra again lo =X.
Overdose Of Libra Part D
This one is the paling teruk one . You know why, you don’t know right, never mind I tell you now then you will know . Because right, Nano, Pik Teng and I got the same job at Alamanda, Putrajaya. I would very much love to blog about my job but this is not the right time, wait till I resign [Probably end of this year] from my job and I shall tell you all about it =P.
So anyway, Pik Teng and I stayed over at Nano’s house for 3 days and yah, I am telling you this, I AM OVERDOSE OF LIBRA until the maximum. In the living room, Pico is using the laptop, I am sitting in between Nano and Pik Teng and Nano’s mum is behind us using the laptop.
The best news? The Libra-s are…
c) Pik Teng
d) Nano and Pico’s Mum
-________- I am stuck in a living room with all the Libra-s and then never mind, I sleep in the same room with the four Libra-s for 3 nights! You say la, overdose of Libra or not! =|But it’s okay, Libra-s are very friendly people who can be very, very crazy .
Nano dalam kedudukan yang tersangatnya cho lo/unlady like =P.
Remind me to tell you a story on how Nano lost a teddy bear to Caitlynn and how I played Hospital with Caitlynn during my first stay at Nano’s house .
The daily routine every morning and night .
Kerja orang yang biasa tidur selepas pukul 1 pagi dan terpaksa tidur pada pukul 11 malam =P.
Pik Teng and I =P.
Nano and I! =P
Us with the miniature Sydney Opera House.
We went to Sydney together!! ❤ ❤ !! I love my Nano and my Nano loves me !!
Lunch with Nano ^_^!
Her dinner. Now we all know why she is such a Nano!
One of my dinner! =P This pizza is from Cold Storage and it cost less than RM3 and it is totally worth my money!
My pizza with lotsa toppings and cheese!
And this is me, enjoying my Cold Storage pizza at McDonald’s . I love McDonald’s! You know why, because when your food needs more pepper/salt/sugar/tomato or chili sauce, you just head over to McDonald’s for some free spices/sauces .
And McDonald’s too provide a good place for you to sleep during your break time =P.
My lunch with Pik Teng =P.
Pik Teng with the delicious mango peach sundae! McDonald’s mango peach sundae is very, very delicious and it is absolutely recommended so everyone must go and try it as soon as possible because it is my ever most favourite ice-cream from McDonald’s now other than the normal sundae cone and McFlurry Oreo .
Pik Teng and I enjoying our mango peach sundae! =P
Chicken McDeluxe! =P [Apa-apa saja la the name =P]
My burger! =P Yummy or not! =P
Hehe! One of the place that we have to visit at times during our working hours =P.
Pasta from Carrefour which tasted not too bad except I went to McDonald’s to add more pepper and this tupperware full of pasta [You take yourself and you pay by its weight =P] cost me around RM2.15 .
A place where Pik Teng and I had our dinner together ❤ .
This is where Nano and I spend our money at for our morning drinks! =P
And right in front of Starbucks, we went over to have Big Apple Donuts . Nano, don’t you love drinking Starbucks and eating doughnuts while sharing some good secrets and talks together?!
And most of all, I miss snacking in the middle of the night while gossiping with the Libra-s!
So the next time when all of you meet me, when I am being indecisive, too compromising and diplomatic, yea, you all know why =P [Overdose Of Libra].
