Another Seminar!

8th June 2009


Second week of internship; pretty much like last week, when it comes for Monday, the office will be almost empty, everybody went outstation, even the boss was absent.

However we were told that there is a seminar held at Impiana KLCC Hotel & Spa, and since we did not yet have any job or task, the secretary had asked us to go to the seminar. The three of us did not go alone, we asked our friend from other departments, Zaim, Bai and Syazwan to join us. The seminar was held by METSO and was attended by various companies such as PCSB, VCO, Emerson, etc. Again, I was not really interested in most of the presentations ( valve technology), and as usual (for me la) the best part of the event is meal time, haha. The foods are marvelous and much better than Holiday Inn Shah Alam.

That’s all for today. Hoping for a better tomorrow..

Spending 1st Weekend

6th June 2009


Weekends proved to be a great solace and remedy to troubled minds and tired body (tired la sgt..huhu). The first week’s weekend started earlier on Friday as yesterday was declared as public holiday in federal territory due to the YDP Agong’s birthday. Weekend is nice enough to recover any aches of your body, so sleeping a lot and wake up late the following morning would be one of the ways to achieve that.

It was quite a nice experience though to spend weekend in our humble hovel, spending time making our breakfast and dinner together, eating and sleeping at the same place (namely the guest area), watching roughly two movies continuously after dinner until mid night, all in all a very nice experience for me. I wish I could savor the moment…

Today we went downtown of KL, spending half of the day at Mid Valley. There are 7 of us, 3 are my housemate Kimi, Gg and me while the rest are my other fellow UTPians. We actually planned to watch the blockbuster Terminator Salvation, but it appeared to be impossible looking at the long que lines for the ticket. The same thing goes when we went to the bowling center. While we did nothing there, just hanged around and a normal window-to-window shopping, we actually had a nice time there.

So plan for tomorrow? Hehe..its secret.

Instrumentation & Control Technology Day

4th June 2009


Here goes the report of the 2009 Instrumentation and Control Technology Day, held in Holiday Inn Shah Alam from 2-4 of June 2009.

  • The event was organized by DFIC department and include participants from SKO, PMO, engineers from operation plants such as Angsi and international speakers from Petronas overseas operating units.
  • The three of us, Kimi, Syaji and me, namely the new trainees were not allocated any place in the event, so there is no room reserved for us. Since our participation in the event is an order from En. kamarulzaman himself, the organizing committees have tried their best to accommodate us. Thus, I were to reside with my senior, Ibrahim and a newly engineer (I forgot his name), both of them are Sudanese. Kimi with other 2 seniors, while Syaji decided to go to her house in Shah Alam.
  • That evening, we were to help the committees in registration process of the participants. That night, after officiating ceremony, we were told that there is an extra room due to the absentees of one of the participant. Thus, Kimi and me got our own room. The room I tell you…was awesome, (mind you, it’s a 4 star hotel man!)
  • The next day’s schedule was not really interesting, mostly presentations from engineers. I don’t know, maybe its just me who felt that. The most anticipating activity is meal time, whether it is breakfast/lunch/dinner, it brings such joy and excitement. If I were to indulge my desires, I will not let go any foods/meal served. Hehe what a pathetic.
  • The second’s night dinner was quite interesting. We have a barbeque party held in the swimming pool area. There are a lot of good foods which I never tasted before. I used this time to chit-chat with the engineers, asked them questions and take notes their advices. While having our dinner, we were entertained by the famous nasyid singer, Amar. He performed several magic tricks and sang some of his famous song (my favorite is nurul iman song). I got the chance to shake his hand and take pic with him. Later before the dinner ends, there were lucky draw, and guess what, I was the lucky one. Alhamdulillah..rezeki tu.
  • The last day is the continuity of yesterday’s presentation before the best speaker and best paper are chosen. The event ends with a closing ceremony and another lucky draw. We back to Wangsa Maju, again by LRT. Thanks to Syaji for sending us to the station.

2nd day experience

2nd June 2009


Rather than succumbed our self to the perspirations, we took a cab to the LRT station which has cost the three of us Rm1 each. I guessed it is affordable enough to bear and worth the money.

Today was my second day in office. This time around, they were many engineers turned up; perhaps they just came back from their outstation.We got the chance to meet our boss, Mr. Kamarulzaman. At first look, he was kind of scary person, but then when we talked and chit-chat for almost 2 hours, I found him to be kind and easy to talk with. So childen..moral of the story; never judge a mangosteen by its skin! Haha in fact I found him to have something in common with me; we both like gadgets! He owns a gorgeous Samsung Omnia ( I tell you, that’s my dream phone!!)

I thought earlier before the long discussion, we will be given task or assignment, but they were none. Instead, we were told to attend a 3 days 2 nights technology day which will start tonight. (Actually, Kak Suhaida already informed us yesterday, so its no surprise as we already packed the stuff earlier,hehe).

So after lunch, we departed from KLCC to Kelana Jaya LRT station, then to Holiday Inn Shah Alam. This is our first travel/visit and it’s in the second day of our internship!!!

1st day in DFIC, PCSB at KLCC


1st June 2009

Just one word; boring. The first day I was in office was just so bored but all in all it was a whole new experience for me. I will call this part of new experience as ‘prophase’ part. As the name suggests, I was just like a baby born, waiting and learning as much as I could. I am neutral and clean, pretty much like a null canvas. Just that this time I need to decorate it myself, neither the employer nor my parents will do. Today was just particularly an intro towards a new working life although I am still not certain on what are ahead of me, but it is for sure has driven me a lot of anxiety but yet excitement.

Today I woke up early but nobody can beat Syazwan as he woke up as early as 5.30am. I was second. I guessed everybody was really excited for the first day. We dressed and groomed to the smartest ever, everybody with his own brand new clothes, shoes, neck tie, etc. We departed from our humble hovel by 7am, walked approximately 20 minutes before reached the Wangsa Maju LRT station. It felt like you took a morning walk just to drench your formal attire, adding to that, the LRT coach..fuh is like sardine!

Once arrived the KLCC we were asked to get the security pass before we can go in to the tower 1. After getting the pass, we need to go through a thorough scanning of our body and belongings. This is an every day’s normal routine for security purpose. Then we headed to level 40 to attend the briefing. The briefing session was a lil bit draggy and soporific. There were about 104 trainees comprises mostly of UTP students plus of other universities. We were then divided into our respective department. I am in Department of Feasilities Engineering, under Development Division(DD) named as DFIC ( Department of Instrument & Control) with the other two trainees; Kimi and Syaji.

After lunch ( lunch in KLCC is costly), the three of us were taken to a tour in the office by the department’s secretary, Kak Suhaida. We were introduced to the engineers, senior engineers and former trainees, unluckily there are only a few of them, as they were going outstation. We don’t even meet with our boss, namely our supervisor, so we left doing nothing. But I used this time to ask questions to the secretary and the former trainees, namely our senior in UTP; I can tell you that they are very kind and helpful.

And tonight, most of us fall asleep early, perhaps due to the first day’s exhaustlessness..hehe.
