I'm leaving Malaysia today going to the UK

Oh gosh!!!! Its been sometimes i didn't update my blog. I was very busy with everything. Yesterday i was in sabah and last night i was in penang and now i am in KL. Wow....what a journey...i just hope that i could get some sleep when i'm on the plane. I just had my breakfast (KFC), and i hate my KFC because they had very limited menus. Yeah..i know its only a breakfast.

Well, its a long and very sad day when we know we are going to somewhere far away from our family. Yesterday my family took me to the airport (terminal 1) KK-KL and many of them, smiled and waved their hands and shaked my hand...each of them wished my success in the UK. was really sad and i said to made my family proud.

My aunty (my mom's younger sister) went to the airport as well with her sons and daughter. Unfortunetly her husband won't be able to come because he had a meeting. I met her 3 years old handsome and cute hyperactive...

Leaving KK yesterday was horrible and it was really sad..tears on my eyes but i can's show it to them..i have to be very strong. Iarrived in KL about 5.40 PM and up to penang about 7.10 PM. Arrived in Penang about 8 PM and my friend was waiting for me at the airport.

Once I arrived at the condo, i went to my room and i looked my packed suitcase..Wow..i said to myself...i am very sad to leave my family and my friends. But i have to go and i must go. THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR A YEARS AND LASTLY I'VE GOT THE OPPURTUNITY AND I DON'T WANT TO LOOK BACK ANYMORE. I ironed chlotes about 4 o'clock this morning and one more time my friend took me to the airport. One more time, tears on my eyes, very sad...

Wow..i never had this situation before...i really feel so nervous even though at the same time i feel so excited to start my new life in a new place. Well, guys i have to go now and its 9 AM my flight is 10.30 AM.

P/S: I can't stop crying since yesterday...its really sad....this is too much for me but i know i can cope with it. Di-iringi dengan SMS-SMS yang sangat sedih membuatkan hati ini sangat sedih...
To all my family members...i won't dissapoint you all.

Update when i was in KL - Makan-makan d'KL

Huh...updating my blog again..boring in the office..doing nothing. So..i think better i update my blog. the same time busy watching the market..LOL!!!! Anyway..i was in KL last week and i had terrible many things happened to me. I really don't want to tell you guys about this. I really don't want to think about it because it's done so no more to think about my visa. Am looking forward to buy my flight going to the UK. Can't wait it...and i really cannot do anything at this moment until i got back all my original documents.

Okey..i was in KL and as usual my niece always wants me to buy a dinner. LOL!!! thanks God i got the money otherwise i have to withdraw some money. We went to D'Mines shopping Mall and it was packed. Even it took 1 hour to get parking space. Mmmm...very tiring but luckly my brother in low drove the i just closed my eyes and waiting the car to be parked. Went to KL and my niece fetched me at the airport with her husband and the baby was with her baby sitter at home. So we had good time that night..

Look at my niece..and her husband...hehehe..time to eat dinner

Believe or not she said she skipped her lunch that day because i was going down to KL

Mmmm...everything was nice except the Hailam noodles i had. It was horrible!!!

P/S: Mmmmm....can't wait to meet them again in Sabah in DEC for x'mas....i can't wait to go back to sabah. Keep my fingers crossed for my Visa.

Warm chlotes from my friends for the UK my money...:)

With a scarf and rain coat

A warm regards from me to all my friends..merry x'mas

Mmmm...Thanks so much to my friends for buying me warm clothes, rain coat and also a scarf. Huh...they went back to the UK last month and got back in MY they bought me all those stuffs. Wow..what a surprised!! I told me once not to buy warm clothes in MY because they won't work in England. Yes i know what he matter how thick the material is, it still doesn't work when u wear it in the UK. So they bought me feel so happy. Anyway...i am excited to celebrate x'mas this year before going to the UK. Feel very very nervous...seriously.....

Shopping before leaving for Sabah

Yeah..i spent my money like i drink a glass of water..LOL!!!

Yeah..Master this brand but sometimes i thought some of the prices are overpriced. not malay...quality come first rather than quantity.

My dutch friend just sat on the seaty and i guess he was sleeping while i was looking for what i wanted.

Wow..i did some shopping last week!!! I spent quite a lot of money. Hehehe...seriously i didn't realize i spent that kind of money and i never did it. First time and i hope never again. Unless i have a lot of money..heheheh...

Update from KL:

Mmm...currently i am in LCCT airport and in just 1 hour i will be in Penang. Huh..4 days in KL and i had terrible days. I had so many problems with my Visa application. Actually it wasn't my fault. Their fault..because they didn't update the latest format for bank reference letter. Queensbay maybank branch gave me a letter (the previous format) and the university representative checked all the documents before i left penang and everything was all right. But when the people (shall i say assessor?) in Visa office checked all the documents, he said the reference letter from the bank was incomplete. Oh Fuck off!!! I went to maybank branch in Ampang park and they said they do not have the authority to produce a letter to support my application. What a dick?!!!! It was really annoying. It means i have to go back to penang to get a letter from queensbay maybank. Why? because i opened my account at there. This is redicilous..wht if i opened my maybank account in Sabah? Anyway...i solved the problem at the end because i went to maybank HQ in puduraya. Thanks God they are very helpful and very very efficient. Anyway...i have to go now....the plane has landed.

P/S: I am tired and i need to get some sleep as well. Very very tired......but i feel happy when my visa application has been accepted. I was nervous when i tried to resubmit 3 times and there was always something incomplete. Lastly my 4th attempt...they accepted it. What a relief!!!!!!!!!

Bungkusan Langsat dari sabah telah sampai..hehehe...

Dig dong!!! Someone pressed the apartment's bell. I was with my laptop that time busy with my things. Ding dong!!! the bell pressed again. I said to myslef...argh...i don't care who comming i want to do this. But strangely nobody open the door. So i slowly moved away frm my laptop and try to look outside trough the other window of the apartment. I saw a guy holding something and i was wondering if it was a guy from the other floor wanted to give something to me. I opened the door and i did not know the guy and i said Yes..may i help you?". And the postman said..."yes is Mr. Andrik here?" and i said "Yes am Mr.Andrik ". He looked at me and he said "Ok..ada bungkusan untuk kamu" and he handed the pack to me. I looked on it and i say my name and my sister's name were written on it. So i signed the form that i need to do and say thank you to him.

I went to the kitchen and took a knife and started to open the pack. Wow...i cannot believe it. LANGSAT BAH DALAM DIA!!!!! and i straight went to my bedroom took my HP. I rang my sister and i said.. "uiiii...kamu kasih kirim sy langsat kah?". She laughed and i am so happy..lastly i can eat langsat after a few years i didnt. I guess we can find the langsat in penang but not sure where. At once i thought i've seen it but dont remember whether it was in Penang or in Thailand. you gooo laju..only one day from sabah to penang

dalam kotak kasut bah..hehehe

Wah...can't wait

P/S: I cannot watch shows its 4.43 am but my eyes say don't sleep!!!!!

The good and bad working with Motorola. Based on my experience

Since my last post about Motorola acceptance I've received quite a few emails asking about this company. I've been working with Motorola for almost a year and i can say it was good but not excellent. I mean there are good sides and bad sides (not really bad sides but i just didn't enjoy it). Anyway i enjoyed my programming and also my web applications development parts. Lets talk about -ve and +ve sides of Motorola in Penang.

The +ve sides

- I love my role as a software engineer and i feel so proud of myself with every single project i've completed.

- No need to punch card. No worry about red mark or black mark on your card. No punch card anyway.

- Flexible time work. It does not matter what time you arrived at the office as long as you work 8 hours per day!!!! thats fine!!

-Salary increment is twice a good. Even bonus also twice a year. For example if your basic salary is RM3500 and your performance for the last 6 months was 90%. It means your salary increment is 0.09 x RM3500 = RM315. If you can maintain your performance in the next 6 months 90% means your next salary increment is 0.09 x RM3815 (remember your basic salary became RM3500 + RM 315) = RM 343.35. This means within a year your salary increment could be RM700!!!
My last performance was i'm glad of it!!! Buli lah cari makan!!

-You can work from home as long as you can submit your work on time.

- A lot of fun at the office. I mean dinner, team building, moto mania and many other activities.

- I've learned something which is very valuable to my future career. They called it Automation Testing. I've learned the script and the process. Wow...i loved it a the beginning but after sometimes...i felt bored.

The -ve Sides
- Motorola is a huge multinational company and since i am a new engineer with them. They don't really care about you particularly when you are exchanging opinions with the senior engineers. No matter how good your opinions are, they will put it to the lowest priority.

-Since i am the only "hard core programmer" (pheweeeitttt!!!) in my department, i felt a bit lonely and stress especially when i am developing a web application that required me a lot of hard work and skills. The other engineers don't really know about programming because they are specialized in doing testing. So when i asked about the development side...they don't know. Pity me!!! I squeezed my brain for every single project I've handled.

- I did not have the chance to strengthen my programming skills because there is no someone better then me in programming part in my department. So i just slightly above from where i was. I was expecting to learn more in Java but no one could program Java in my department. So a bit disappointing actually. It's a pity actually because Motorola Penang is specialized in doing testing instead of development.

Anyway, there you go...i've listed some good and bad things working with a multinational company and maybe you would like to consider my review about Motorola. Think about it friends!!! I didn't say they are good or bad but i said they are pros and cons.

P/S: I am still counting my day to leave Motorola. In 2 weeks time I will be leaving!!!!! At this moment so busy with my visa applications going to the UK. At the same miss sabah so much. I knew i don't have time to spend in sabah because i might be leaving for the UK in the first week of Jan 2010.

How to cook noodles? Believe me this is much better than using boiled water.

Huh...I think its been a week i didn't blog because i was so busy with the new project requested by the manager. Unfortunately, i am the only one hard core programmer (pheweeitttt!!!) in my department and i have no choice to escape form it. So i really have to stick on it and this week is really horrible for me because i have to struggle to finish the project within a week. Not really actually..i mean i do have 2 weeks time but i wanted to finished it this week because i will be busy after 21st of Nov for these and that. Anyway...i wanted to post the pictures of mine cooked something but i didn't have the time. And today, i finished my work this afternoon and yeahhh.....i'm free now!!!! Last week i cooked special noodles with some salads (i cooked it..dare u to believe?LOL!) egg and also sausages...oh yes..another one is baked beans and of course the chili paddy. Okey...okey....lets have a look what I've cooked.

I love this kitchen...even though i used it occasionally

I love cooking
With an egg..i love it
Wow...i started it
Wow...nice baked beans and egg
Mix em' together...dare to believe?
Omg..they were melted on my tongue with a glass of fresh milk..
Wow..look..can u see something on the top???? chilies...bebe!!!

P/s: Its been 10 months i didn't cook and i missed it so much. I'll be back to sabah in Dec and cannot wait to cook more dishes for my family. BTW, i am counting how many days more to go before leave Motorola for the UK!!!!

Once upon a time...............

Vincent's apartment

Last Sunday I went to my friend's apartment because we were planning going to Penang Hill. He is so fancy to see Penang from the top of the hill because I told him that the view is nicer to see the island from there. So he rang me about 12.11 PM.

Attention!!!!Google Chrome is not a stable browser yet!!!!

Here is one of the outcomes frm my stress test

Another outcome frm stress test

Attention, my friend told me that his GC (Google chrome) has crashed and unable to reinstall (i think the worst part when u are unable to reinstall it). He told m GC is not a stable browser yet!!! I said to him "No Way!!!" since I love google i tried to back up all their products. He hasked me to do several "stress tests".

So this morning I did a few stress test on GC and he was right when GC keeps prompts me this message. Oh Shit!!!!! NOT RECOMMENDED if you are browsing something important. Because GC doesn't have auto recovery. Trust me!!!! GC is not stable yet.

Don't use GC if ;
1. You are doing an online editing
2. You are shopping online
3. Have the intention to leave GC idle for more than 20/30 minutes

However, Do use GC if
1. You are browsing for reading purpose
2. When you are downloading something

Because GC is faster compared to the other browsers.

P/S: Stress test? how to do this? mmmm...try to run many programs as possible on your laptop and it affects your browser, means your browser is not stable enough yet. Other than that, try to open many tabs as possible and sometimes it will crash your browser.

Penang ChiangGay Festival

I went out with my friend Vincent last monday and we went to the place near Penang legal court. While we were there we saw there was a fastival and i am not sure what was it but if i'm not mistaken it was a ChiangGay Festival. Don't get me wrong, it is just a name and a lot of tourists at there and most of them from China, HK, Japan and Korea. We were busy looking at them and here are the pictures taken.

Do u see the flag is on his foot?

And he is going to kick it up

Yeah...kicking it up..

And the flag went up going to the second guy's head

The guy on the ledder is ready

Oh Yes...the flag is on his head

He is trying to balance it on a ledder...

I cannot imagine how to do it. I mean just immagine if the flag went to your mouth and break your teeth? Don't you feel regret for the rest of your life? Hehehehe.....Or if the flag miss landed on your eye...isn't scary? Huuuuuuuu....don't want to take the risk!!!!

P/S: After so many friends asked me whether i have a facebook or not and i keep answered NO I DON'T HAVE ONE. Lastly, i created a facebook account and i started looking for friends from that site yesterday.
