Practical Day 46: The Last Day





Terasa hendak berbahasa Melayu. Tak pe kan. Jadi dengan ayat stail ‘status FB’, kali ni ingat nak bersantai sikit untuk tulis-tulis pasal praktikal ni. Maklumlah, hari last.

Macam mana nak cakap? Memang hari yang ditunggu-tunggu telah tiba. Tapi, bangun pagi, tak terasa apa pun. Bangun, mentaliti nak pergi kerja, macam biasa. Tapi hari ni dah plan, nak beli 20 biji kuih donat dari Kedai Haji Kassim yang besar-besar tu dan bawak sekali kuih bakar yang mak buat. Nak open table untuk yang kerja kat office. Nak bagi kat kongsi kong? Tak pelah, lain kali kut. Bukan terasa nak balas apa yang diorang belanja semalam, memang dah plan la nak beli dan nak bagi mereka.

Okay, kemudian terus ke site. Tergendong-gendong bawak beg plastik besar-besar ni. Naik opis, terus sorokkan dulu. Sebab nak open mase pukul 10 nanti, mase minum. Ingatkan dah lambat, rupanya agak awal jugak aku ni. Dahsat jugak, perangai datang awal ni masih melekat dari hari first sampai hari last. cuma hari first dulu tu awal sangat la. 7.15 pun dah sampai opis. Gila jugak rasanya. Sekarang ni kira lambat banding dengan dulu cuma sekarang dah pandai bajet time.

Jadi, pagi ni cari la lagi maklumat yang best untuk di copy dan di fotostat. Kena cepat, supaya takde orang jadikan isu. Abang Syed yang biasa bawak nasi lemak dari luar ajak aku minum. Aku pun memang nak join. Hari last kot. Dengan senior staff yang paling aku kamceng. Yang lain kalau aku kamceng pun sebab diorang muda takpun baru kerja. Aku pun tanya camne nak distribute kuih yang aku bawak tu. Dia kata, cakap je kat Mr. Tong yang aku nak bagi kuih-kuih ni kat orang opis. Nanti dia bagitau la kat orang ramai. Okay, nasib baik ada cara.

Abis minum, lagi sekali aku belek apa barang yang aku nak culik. Sambil tu pulak, Faiz trainee baru tu pun ngendeng-ngendeng dengan aku nak tengok apa yang aku ambik. Nanti dia takdelah terkejut sangat dan blur apa yang boleh di culik. Pukul 10! Aku pun pergi kat Mr. Tong cakap nak distribute kuih tu. Pastu dia suruh aku letak atas meja meeting tu dan aku pun announce kat sume orang. Padahal orang kat dalam opis tu dah la sikit. Tak pe lah, nanti sorang-sorang msuk boleh la amik kuih.

Memandangkan aku tengah rushing nak renew road tax, aku pun keluar time-time gini. Time minum tak salah aku boleh keluar. Asalkan jagan lambat sangat. Uish, skil yang aku tengah apply la ni. Skil Mengular. Tak pe. Untuk hal-hal penting boleh consider kut. Malangnya, tak dapat nak buat. Bangang jugak Ikobana.com ni. Tak pe lah. Yang lagi bangang sebenarnya Post Office. Problem ape ntah sampai sekarang tak leh nak renew road tax.

Kemudian, macam biasa aku cuba cari lagi bahan sambil Faiz interview aku macam-macam. Aku kena turunkan ilmu sedikit sebanyak supaya dia dapat tahu. Lepas aku blah nanti aku tak sure dia boleh tanya siapa. Aku rasa dia boleh survive. Dia pun tanya macam mana lunch hari ni (Jumaat)? So aku cakap macam biasa. Hari ni dia tak bawak bekal, sebab dia nak try apa yang aku asyik beli kat kedai mamak tu. Mee Goreng Melayu Pedas. Aku pun nak keluar ofis, sekali Mr. Lim cakap kuih bakar tu sedap. Dia tanya beli kat mana. Aku pun jawab ‘Itu mak saya yang buat’. Pergh, kalau aku citer kat mak aku ni, mesti kembang. Pastu mesti lagi rajin nak buat. (Memang betul, mak aku kemudian suruh aku beli telur lagi banyak. Adoy).

Aku pun kemudian keluar ke D’Mamak. Order macam biasa, untuk rasa kali terakhir. Lepas ni entah bila la aku nak singgah sini. Jarang sangat lalu arah Gombak dan Selayang ni. Pastu aku dengan faiz pun pergi Solat Jumaat kat Klang Gate. Dekat dengan rumah pak cik aku. Tapi malangnya, hari ni tak jumpa dia pulak.

Aku kemudian balik opis. Abang Syed ajak naik blok A. Aku mula-mula macam keberatan, tapi dia dah nak ajar, aku tak nak menolak. Aku pun follow, kali ni dapat la jugak aku belajar sedikit sebanyak hal-hal architecture ni. Naik tingkat atas sekali, masyaAllah. Cuaca clear dan aku dapat tengok view KL paling jelas. 4,5 kali jugak naik tapi aku rasa nilah yang paling clear. Tau-tau je ni hari last. Lepas puas tengok, Abang Syed ajak turun, check level lain. Aku jalan pergi arah tangga, pastu stop jap. Aku pandang belakang nak tengok view KL untuk kali terakhir dari sini. Syahdu. Pusing balik dan join Abang Syed buat check pintu tangga. Kemudian aku mintak izin nak turun. Setengah jam je lagi nak time. Aku pun salam Abang Syed, pastu dia bagi nasihat. Aku tak boleh dengar nasihat yang panjang-panjang ni. Nanti aku terharu dengan rasa nak nangis. Nasib baik boleh tahan. Ha3.

Aku balik opis, packing barang dengan kemaskan kerja-kerja aku yang dulu-dulu tu. Tengok kat tengah opis ada Mr. Ting. Aku bagi souvenir Mug dari UK. Pastu aku handover file aku kepada dia. Maka secara rasmi aku sudah abis training kat sini. Aku pergi salam Eddie. Tapi dia nak check pasal barang yang aku slalu hantar tu. Jack Base, U-Head dan Ladder Frame. Nampaknya dia tak puas hati dengan jumlah Ladder Frame yang masih tinggal. Lantaklah, aku dah nak blah dah pun. Aku pun kuar, farewell semua orang dan cakap terima kasih kat diorang. Aku turun, salam dengan LP. Orang pertama yang aku bercakap kat site ni masa awal-awal masuk dulu. Turun sikit lagi jumpa Encik Zairul, Mr. Lim dan Abang Hafizan.

Pergi kat van, start enjin dan terus vrooooom. Aku pun meninggalkan site ni. Alhamdulillah, semua selesai. Tinggal lagi mahu buat report. Terima kasih Kak Mazita, Nurul, Shima, Abang Syed, Mr. Lim, Abang Hafizan, Ting, Mr. Tong, Eddie, Mr. Chong, Abang Amin, Encik Zairul, Cheah, Ah Heng, Ah Liew, Alex, Benny, Ah Teh, Rashpal, Simon, Abang Nizam, Encik Farid dan Faiz si trainee baru. Tak lupa juga kepada semua kongsi kong seperti Sugi, Swandi, LP, Pak Martin, Rahman, Taizil Islam, Basu, Khan Jaan Ali, Nazrul Islam, Shafiqul, Jamaluddin, Din. Lorry driver abang din dan Suyanto. Pak guard sekalian dan semua orang lain termasuk tower crane operator. Terima kasih buat kalian bagi nilaian yang tak terhingga. Selamat tinggal dan ketemu lagi di lain hari jika ada rezeki. Asslamualaikum.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.

Practical Day 45: Gudday







I am a little bit afraid of yesterday task. To find those sanitary wares that already arrived long before I’m here. The thing making this matter worse, LP also does not working here at that time. I assume that I have to check a new file from Kalam, another Bangla. I think he was the store keeper before LP. But I just want to keep busy with my report. I search for files that include information regarding this site. I photocopied method of statement and so many more. Ting didn’t say a word to me. I hope I can get off the hook this time. Later I seek Mr. Tong to get his initial on my logbook. Then I state my intention to make tomorrow as my last day. He seems surprised. I give a reason that my class will start immediately on Monday as I don’t have so much time to prepare. He seems okay even though he did not say yes or no. However, I will decide on that matter. Now, my decision is tomorrow is my last day. InsyaAllah.

Ting overheard us. He suddenly turns around and asked me to arrange everything that I have done before in a file. So he wants me to give to him later. Mr. Ting also adds that I suppose to hand over those items to Shima. Shima did not come today. So I feel a bit down. Okay, fine. I just go out and take some pictures around the site. It took me a while though. It is good as I want to waste my time without doing works from the office. Later about 1 hour before lunch, I return to the office. I wanted to photocopy some other materials. As I read the progress report to pick what I wanted suddenly Ting called me. Then he says that he wanted me to follow him for lunch, to the McDonald. I don’t know what to say. I have to cancel the lunch plan with Faiz.

In the car, with Kak Ita I have learned the truth. Lot of it. She said that (something might be racist)… but the fact is every race is same. The basis is there are good people and bad people. That’s all. Once they know that one Malay differ from Malay stereotype, they will be amazed. So that’s why I’m here right now. Being invited for lunch and will be treated by them like a celebration as an appreciation. I couldn’t ask for more. Alhamdulillah if what she says is true. So I ask for her opinion whether I’m good or not? Then she answer that I’m doing okay. I have to know the fact that I am learning and I am a TRAINEE. I should not mutter on my low-class task. The major point is to give an exposure to me on the working on site. It’s okay Kak Ita. I already accepted that fact few weeks ago when Mr. Yong, my lecturer gives me a visit. It is also strengthen after I met Ir. Shaharin last week.

So, I being treated by Ah Ting and I get a free gift from McD. Six of us, made up from myself, Kak Ita, Rashpal, Ah Ting, Ah Teh and Mr. Tong, my supposed-to-be-supervisor. I never had a chance to go to lunch with them. I think this is to commemorate my ending of practical. After billion sweats falling over, hatred that I have felt, confusedness, lost in the world and so many more knowledge and experience that I have, I should thanks them for what I have now.

Later in the evening, I climb up to the uppermost floor of the block A. I wanted to see the brickworks being done yesterday. Amazingly, there is huge advancement made until today. Alhamdulillah, now I already have some pictures of progress. As I going down from the building, I met Taizil Islam, P1 from the previous post. He is the kongsi kong that I used to get help from. I shake hands with him and mentioned that tomorrow will be my last day. I don’t know whether he can understand me. He just laughs.

Suddenly my phone rang. It is Eddie. I take the call and he asked my whereabouts. I said that I am at level 11 to watch work under progress. So he wanted me to check on sanitary fittings inside the cabin. The cabin is placed on the roadside at the main road. I never have chance to peek in it. Now I have the huge chance to check on items in it. However, the cabin inside is too hot. Too humid as the odor is also bad. I check the items. Later I show it to Eddie even though it is already too late (for me, I want to go home sharp on 5). He took the list and wanted me to photocopy it for him. I just do the order. Later upon receiving the list again, he asked me “Adli, is it tomorrow is your last day”. Then I nodded without a word. Then he looks at other place in despair. I don’t know what the issue for him. As far as I’m concern, I can stop working here. Nothing else disturbing my mind. I hope he can find another trainee to do my job. Lol.

So I return home with smile on my face. I feel like a got an A for Industrial Training already. Well, the result not too important (Yes, it is actually important), but I want to feel this feeling. Feeling of proud and happiness. I hope I can get an A for this subject, Industrial Training.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.

Practical Day 44: Conflict







The training is almost end. As I close with the time, I came only on time to the site. Not early as I did in the beginning of the training. Woa, I remember that my van’s road tax already dead today. Hope nothing happen so I can renew it later. InsyaAllah.

Well, this morning I asked Shima and Kak Mazita to join them for breakfast. I never had a breakfast with them. Suddenly Ting came and also wanted to join. Urmph, I cannot do some gossiping for this time anymore. As we having our breakfast, Ting opens up the working discussion. I’m not in the mood to discuss about work with him. I rather to keep quiet besides joining him in the talk. I also don’t want to get too close with him.

Then we return to the office. I keep on with key in the measurement that I did last week and I hope no work coming in. Immediately after I’ve finished the key in work, Abang Syed already put on his helmet. He asked me to join him to the uppermost floor at the block A. He wanted to teach me about setting out and brick work. I couldn’t resist. As fast as I can, I catch my safety helmet and I followed him.

Here we are, at the uppermost level of the building. I wait a while as Syed solving some issue. Later he teaches me about setting out the brickwork. This is to ensure the accuracy of the bricks placement inside the unit is correct. Later he explains about ‘Exmat’. This is a type of mat that used to strengthen the bonding between brick layer. The setting out is using the ‘Grid Line’ made by surveyor. The grid line became the reference to drag the displacement of the setting out. After the setting out finished, then only the brickwork can be started. If not, later it might invite so many problems later on like plastering, water proofing, floor rendering, tiling and so many more. Sometime later, we continue to make some inspection on the brickwork done. We measured the distance between two points involving brickworks. If it’s ok, then it is fine. If not, Syed will order them to do some rework to correct the mistakes happened. Okay, we finished for the first part of the day.

Lunch, I go to D’ Mamak with Faiz, the new trainee. I couldn’t resist with its Mee Goreng Melayu Pedas version. I enjoyed it as I don’t know where and when I can get it again after I finish this training. Not much we can talk about. He interested to know about studying degree in Civil Engineering. I just explain to him what I know.

Then we continue our works for the second part of the day. As I sit on my table, then Ting come close to me and give me a Purchase Order (PO). He wants me to call the supplier. Woa, Team Aid! A company I already used to deal with. No problem. Then I call them and asked about the delivery. So, Nick from Team Aid says that it can be deliver tomorrow. So I hang up the phone and pick up my helmet as I want to go out. Then I walking around and taking pictures as I want to pick pictures and information regarding this site as many as possible. Then I rest a while as it is raining out there. As I drink my Teh Ais, somebody call my phone. It’s Eddie, the PM. What does he want now? I already finish with the delivery works. I receive the phone calls.
Me: Hello Boss.
Eddie: Hello Adli. Where are you? (Wow, he saying my name)
Me: I’m at Basement 2.
Eddie: Basement 2… Can you bring along LP’s store books as I want you to do something.
Me: Okay, okay.

Then I go to the store and I see LP. So I asked him to follow me bringing his books. Then both of us go to the office. Later Eddie order me to do some checking on some items of sanitary wares. Of course I says yes. But later, there are too many conflicts. Communication barrier between me and LP as he is Nepalese. Misallocation of things. The books are not well sorted for listing. Then I blanked with sweats as the store is hot. This is the item for Rashpal. He came but he suddenly decides on something which brings more confusion. Then I decided to take a numbers and show it to the boss.

I know it is not the same number (coding from the supplier). As that is the thing that I can only find in the huge store, I have no other way. I show it however to the boss. He does not satisfy. He asks me to bring again the books and ask Ah Ting to join the meeting. Okay, I do it and I, Ting and LP are in meeting with the Boss.

Oh, now I know. Both of us, me and LP are new. Not only me. So we don’t know how things going on here before our arrival. So both of them Ting and Boss are discussing in Chinese. Later he wants to divert my concentration with ordering me to detect some coding of items to be match with the list of sanitary wares. I think that they are confronting about something that might involve the blaming of each other. Alhamdulillah, that thing I imagine is not happen. In the end the thing I know is I have to find something related with sanitary wares inside MTRA file. It is already difficult to find that file and when I find the file, the file is too thick. I have to read page by page. As I said earlier, it will be unlucky for me if the Site Clerk is not around. She goes to the HQ. No one can accompany me talking as I’m reading.

One by one left the office including Faiz. As I being kept inside the office with moody face. I found one sheet about sanitary wares but that’s not it. Almost 6, I finished the file. Nothing can be found. Ting says to me that there is another file but I want to do it tomorrow. So he says yes then I’m packing to return home. So my 2nd part of the day is finished. I want to return home as I want to start for my 3rd part of the day. Pulling my effort onto ‘Monbukagakusho’ scholarship. Gambatte Kudasai.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.

Practical Day 43: Last Delivery


It is only a neutral day. Came to the site with a mission in my head. To order the kongsi kongs to finish the collecting of Jack Base and U-Head. Finally, it has an ending. Well, I order them to collect those things and arrange it on the palettes as usual. So I just looked at them doing their work properly. If something else happen I will ask them to adjust their work.

The lorry driver came. I order them to load these items into the lorry and as usual I have a chit chat with Abang Din about ‘Oh No!’ post before. I just pretend to be very interested in it. As the matter of a fact, I don’t like this situation. You can call me a hypocrite but actually I don’t know how to deal with this. Well, I hope I will be given strength in the days coming.

Yes, finally I see the ending of it. The lorry just went out from the site and I see I’m doing something. From 3900 number of Jack Base and now it is only 60 numbers left in this site. I couldn’t send it out as it is being used for the construction. I assume that I have finished my duty. Now I am much more relaxed.

I couldn’t remember clearly what I do for today as write about this day is two days later. The thing I know is today is free. I am doing everything with my heart open. No issues. I think that is why I couldn’t remember a thing. Never mind. Good days not always coming. Let me enjoy this feeling. I like our site clerk. I want to see her smile again. I think she is my closest friend here. She is my motivation to come here. Exactly on the day she arrived, I already felt that my burden has lost much. Yes of course. After her arrival, I don’t have to do Admin works anymore. She also talks to me many times. So I can express my stress to her. Even though my story makes her feels sleepy. Well, not much day left. I must write her name in Japanese as she already requested. I will give to her tomorrow. InsyaAllah.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tuassir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.

Practical Day 42: Mim Alif Lam Sin

I did not take my breakfast. As I have to rush to the site. Today is Monday and that means there will be a toolbox meeting. I cannot be late for it. Well, I arrived to the site and just wait for the meeting. Later Eddie calls me and asks me to finish my job today. As he want to take his people back. I said okay and thank you. Then, my target is to finish up all the outstanding works. After the meeting finished then I asked them to immediately continue their works. As I am rushing towards time.

Well, even though I have a hard time to settle matters, the work is still going on. Well, as I write this I don’t know what to describe this day. As I thought I am lazy but I think another people think otherwise. As I tell LP that this week is my final week. Then he said my rapport is good. What? Maybe he just want to ‘kipas’ me but he again state the same. He said that he sees me working all the time. Well, that what you see, ea. He feel a bit sad as he knows whatever I have done will be given to him after I leave. He will continue my works here. Hurm, at least I know somebody who feels sad for me after I’m leaving. Ha3.

Well, enough for today I think. Not much except I become a bit closer with Encik Farid. He taught many things about industrial training report. So he gives me clues that I might put inside my report. He even offered to me of his photo collection. So I can choose whatever I like about this site. Thank you Mr. Farid. I will revise what we have discussed earlier.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.

Practical Day 41: Cousin’s Wedding

I did not come to work for today. I know I will not come today long before I have started this training. That is because my cousin’s wedding is today. She is my same-age-cousin. There are no chances that I’m going to miss her big day, if Allah wills. Even though I’m not contributing much for her ceremony.

Weird thing is, there are still people calling me for work matters. Urgh. Well there are some mistakes about the delivery. As I pass over to Swandi, he might not hear my order really well. So I tell the lorry driver ‘Never mind, the thing already happens. I will figure out something later’. Now, I’m having both. The wedding ceremony and also my little bit of work.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.


“PATRIOTISM IS SUPPORTING YOUR COUNTRY ALL THE TIME, AND YOUR GOVERNMENT WHEN IT DESERVES IT” – Mark Twain -

Practical Day 40: Oh No!

Well, I just continue ordering them to do their works. As today much more difficult as I thought I want to make two trip of delivery. I ordered them to collect Ladder Frame first as that my plan. With the second trip will sent out all the three palettes that left. However as to collect and arrange the ladder frame inside the lorry is time consuming, so I have to postpone another trip for tomorrow. Well, here is the mistake happen. At least from my point of view.

What am I hate and afraid of just happen. Well, I still hold on my principle. The lorry driver explained to me that the broken items that have been sent out are not counted. Since he is not returning the uncounted items back to the site I already thought something bad. He explained that is no bad about it. It is not counted if it is broken. And if the broken items are returned back to the site, they will use it again and that will pose a great danger, even death. As he explained me there are few stages of working people. He told me I already reach level 2. And now he teaches me level 3. Where to do work properly with making benefit aside as for my motivation. As I hear to him, I know he might be right. Plus we don’t like our superior. But deep inside, I’m still holding on my principle.

He also offers to me some incentive. As I don’t know to accept or not. If I did not accept it, it will sadden him. So I decided to accept it later. But I will not use the money. Instead of burning the notes I will give to the kongsi kongs who has work for me before. Eventually, I know it is a sin. I’m sorry. I will train with much more honest people to work inside this adventurous world. ‘There are no bad students, but there might be a bad teacher’. Hurm, yes. I agree.

(29/7/2010) Alhamdulillah. I didn't receive anything. Thanks to God.

Allahummaghfirli Zunubi, Waliwalidayya, Warhamhuma, Kama Rabbayana Soghira. Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 39: Work Continues


Now I have to continue my work as I did not come to the site yesterday. In my mind, I’m really worried to think about what I have left before. I’m not sure whether I have caused trouble to others as I did not come to work. I thought I am nobody, but recently I am somebody, I am a part of the site. If I did not come, nothing will be sent out even it is ready to be sent out.

So I come to the site. Nothing weird happen. Only that there is a conflict of people usage. I don’t know who is holding that two people. In the morning, that two people doesn’t know what to do. So I asked him to follow my order to continue the collecting work. Then Din told me that they help him for yesterday. He let them to follow me because there is no sufficient equipment to be given out plus he cannot control too many people. So be it.

I continue with my work. Later I encountered Teh. He is the superior of Din. So he so surprised looking that these people following me. He approach me then asked me why these guys are following me. So I reply that I retake them from Din. He seems so frustrated. I don’t want to know what his problem. As he leaving, he said that I must use them for today and tomorrow will be given again to him. I nodded and just continue my job. Hoping all the collecting job will be finished today.

As I looked at them working, I think the work cannot be finished. So I decided to discuss this matters with Eddie, our PM. Well, some ‘discussion’ event happened. As it is first time I argue with PM. But in the end, I left his room as I won’t able to answer his question. He asked me ‘When you can finish your job’. As I asked again that the term ‘finish’ is so subjective. With so many JB and UH is still in use. What does he mean with ‘finish’? That is why I left his room. I don’t want to complicate things further. Well, just let tomorrow happen. InsyaAllah.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Monbukagakusho: End, But Not Forever


I thought the result will be announced in February 2011. Suddenly I received a news stated that the result will be announced on the last week of July. It is so sudden and I have to figure out about the Letter of Acceptance (LoA) from the university. I also joined a forum that discussed about this matter extensively.

Tiba-tiba rasa mahu menaip menggunakan Bahasa. Maaflah bercampur aduk.
Secara jujurnya, memang sudah dapat mengagak keputusan sebegini yang akan diberitakan. Maklumlah, hati sudah berkecamuk. Namun dalam masa yang sama, masih lagi berdo’a dan menaruh harapan moga dikurniakan Tuhan untuk diberi peluang belajar di Negara Matahari Terbit sana. Selalu juga termimpi-mimpi melakukan kajian di sana sambil mahu belajar adat disana. Hajat di hati juga mahu lancar bertutur bahasa Jepun disamping dengan mudah membaca tulisan Hiragana, Katakana dan juga Kanji seperti dapat membaca ayat Al-Quran dalam bahasa Arab.

Namun, penantian akhirnya terhenti disini. Keputusan yang tidak menyebelahi diri pula diketahui. Kali ini tiada A+ ke E, yang ada cumalah berjaya ataupun tidak berjaya. Dua jawapan yang jauh sekali erti dan maknanya. Keghairahan terhenti seketika. Terkedu melihat laman forum, heboh memberitahu keputusan sudah dikeluarkan. Sedang saya pula terketar mahu membuka email, ditekan juga butang enter untuk mendaftar masuk. “Tiada Email Baru” adalah satu kenyataan yang begitu menghampakan. Terduduk, termenung dan fikiran menjadi kosong. Diri seolah hilang, rakan memanggil pun tidak perasan.

Sebenarnya rasa begitu bersalah. Bersalah pada diri, bersalah pada rakan, bersalah pada keluarga, bersalah pada pensyarah dan pada semua. Selama 4 bulan berjuang, terpaksa mencuri masa FYP, IDP, dan latihan industri untuk segala macam persediaan. Saya mohon ampun dan maaf pada Auk, Syuk, Man, dan rakan-rakan yang lain kerana pelbagai perkara yang kalian telah bertolak-ansur atas perkara ini.

Rasa niat dihati, mahu menjadi permata di sana. Permata Islam dengan hajat hati yang amat besar. Namun segalanya belum dibenarkan lagi agaknya. Pelbagai perkara perlu disiapkan dari segi mentaliti, spiritualiti dan fizikal. Terima kasih kakak atas dorongan yang diberikan. Diri ini tidak kan terus berputus asa. InsyaAllah jika Tuhan perkenankan, sampai juga aku ke sana.

After all it is not so good for being too honest.

Practical Day 38: Wide View

Well, I did not come to work today. As I have to send my mum to the clinic. She has a periodical medical checkup. Then I already registered a full day unpaid leave. As I wish to go to Shah Alam to settle some of Monbusho matters. In my mind, I wanted to get my transcript, to meet with Ir. Shaharin as I want him to be my recommender and I wanted to discuss something with Puan Sabariyah about the title of my study later.

Well, not much about the clinic but there are so many things I discussed with Ir. Shaharin. First, of course I finish up the matters at PRPK where they manage the student transcript. I know, I might encounter some trouble as I wanted to have some manageable trouble. I wasted RM 7 as I wrongly asked the type of transcript. I believe, if it is some obstacle in front of me that’s mean or I hope that my path will be much clear later especially in the interview.

Only then I meet Ir. Shaharin. With immediate appointment made, he agrees to be my recommender. No issue arises. Then he deeply wanted to know what my intention is. So I explained clearly to him that this is a requirement for the interview. Later, he asked me about Industrial Training. He is the Industrial Training coordinator. So I explained everything that I experienced at the site. Then he just said that what I have been through for these few weeks earlier is good for me. No problem for my report even though I’ve been placed under the QS department. He added that even a scold from the boss; it is a part of learning. Wow, I’m motivated after meeting him. Well about the industrial training of course.

Later we discussing about the possible title that I will research upon arriving in Japan. Then I explained to him that I wanted to do ‘Effluent effect on soil’. He immediately searches the Scopus and other journal search engine. Unfortunately, there is no same journal on that title. He suddenly likes this situation. He suggested that my title will be an ignition on the scope of the studies as no one ever made the research. For better, this research might be improved to the PhD level. Wow, I’m not thinking as far as that. I’m only thinking to pass the interview first. Everything will be prepared later.

Well, I never become this close with Ir. Shaharin. It is sorry also, as I only asked him after I have some intention to meet him. Well, I have to prepare so many things. I don’t know what to do. As I have to refer to Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, because he told us in his book that during his trial for the Angkasawan program he already actively doing so many commitments. For me, I have FYP awaits me and industrial training reports. Plus, Integrated Design Project that haunting us. Fortunately, about Monbukagakusho, it will end on 8 July, for stage 3. I don’t want it to ends there. I hope it will continue until I returned home from Japan after finished my Master Studies. InsyaAllah.

Practical Day 37: Pressured

Well, honestly I write this post much later than the actual day. So I have to hardly recall my memory to remember what I have done on that day. As far as I know, I come as usual to the site. Knowing that I still keeping two Banglas now I have to make sure they have to do their works. So I have my delivery for today. I meet my PM, he wanted to know whether I want to use them much longer. So I said that I will return them to him after lunch. So I just do my work as usual. To deliver the JB and UH.

In the same time, Ah Man the man from Xun Hip, the subcontractor always pushes me to finish up the calculation we made yesterday. I said that is impossible. I need a free half day to work on that. But I have other task to be completed. So I have to ignore his pressure.

I just have my day. Some issue arises between me and PM as he wanted me to clear all the JB and UH totally. In my mind, that is impossible as there are so many JB and UH being use right now. But I tried anyway. So I just do it. Sent out two trips of items.

Well, I couldn’t remember much about my work anymore. Not like my early weeks of working. I just go through it. Okay, at least on this evening I tried to satisfy Ah Man. But I only can make few calculations for him. I have to go back as I have to bring along Faiz the new trainee. I couldn’t remember other event. Because I know I’m tougher now. I have to go through everything as I want to learn.

But I know, I like my site not because of the site’s nature. I like to see Shima, the site clerk. I like her smile. And I’m not happy if she is not happy or under pressure from the superior staffs. She is my friend that keeping my survival at the site. Even though she did nothing to me, but she gives me strength from the inside. She gives so many tips that are too valuable. I mean, she gives me some rare tips that I never heard of from other senior staffs. Sometime I express my problem to her as I have to share it with others. She is willing to hear even though it is quite boring. Well, enough of her. I hope I can see her every day onwards. If she is not at the site, I feel that I will be unlucky on that day. I hope she will come to work every day.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir. Rabbi Tammim BilKhair.

Sorotan Praktikal Hari 36

Mr. Yi, seorang staf dari pihak consultant. Umur mungkin akan mencecah 40 tahun dalam masa terdekat. Bekerja sebagai Clerk Of Work di site kami. Beliau adalah seorang yang peramah. Aku pun terkejut melihatkan dia tahu nama aku lebih awal dari aku mengetahui nama beliau. Pelbagai perbincangan telah kami lalui dan nampaknya beliau amat berminat untuk menjadi Safety Officer. Namun, aku rasa perbualan kami untuk hari ini sudah lama beliau pendamkan. Mungkin tercari-cari orang yang sesuai untuk berbicara mengenai isu ini. Seperti biasa beliau akan memanggil nama aku dengan lantang ‘Adli!!!’ jika terserempak di kala ringan tanpa bebanan kerja. Dan inilah antara isi butir bicara kami, ketika bersama-sama menuruni tangga satu tingkat.

Mr. Yi: Hey, saya tengok kan, MARA banyak yang keputusan biasa-biasa saja pun dapat masuk.

Aku: (Terdiam sekejap dan berfikir, ye ke?) Eh, ye ke Mr. Yi? MARA? UiTM ke maksud U?
Mr. Yi: Yalah! Saya tengok BM dapat 8 pun boleh masuk Universiti.

Aku: (Biar betul BM 8 dpt masuk) Eh, takdelah. Kalau BI tu boleh jadi la. Memang biasa la tu, saya tak boleh nak cakap apa la.

Mr. Yi: Itulah, keputusan tak hebat mana pun dapat masuk universiti dan belajar tinggi-tinggi. Kami ini tak de peluang tau. Susah mahu belajar. Kata 1Malaysia, patutnya semua orang dapat peluang yang sama.

Aku: Tak de lah sampai mcm tu sekali Mr. Yi. Memang ada segelintir macam tu, tapi ada juga yang excellent. Bukan semua dalam tu yang Mr. Yi cakapkan tadi. Lately, saya tengok junior saya ramai yang lagi hebat keputusan SPM mereka dari saya lagi. Mereka sudah pilih student excellent untuk masuk. Kalau tak pun, student yang excellent itu sendiri yang pilih untuk masuk UiTM.

Mr. Yi: Itulah, tapi saya sendiri yang tengok keputusan mereka. Waa, BM 8 tapi dapat masuk.

Aku: Erm, itu saya tak dapat nak cakap apa la. (Line dalam kepala: Nak buat cammane, itu sebab diorang –Govt- nak tolong). Itulah, kan kes 10% nak open tu, saya rasa setuju juga. Sebab antara kami ni banyak alpa dan leka. Termasuk saya sendiri. Perlu ada competition untuk advance. Kalau tidak, ramai yang belajar main-main.

Mr. Yi: Itulah, masa Khalid MB cakap mahu open 10%, waaa, bukan main ramai lagi keluar buat demonstrasi.

Aku: Saya tau tu, tapi saya pergi kelas tau Mr. Yi. Saya tak join demo tu. Saya tak pandang pun apa yang diorang mengarutkan tu.

Mr. Yi: Kalau betullah buka 10% untuk non-bumi saya memang laju mahu apply tau.

Aku: Saya tak tau la. Kalau Mr. Yi nak tau, inilah kali pertama saya dalam environment campur.

Mr. Yi: Campur? Sama dengan Cina?

Aku: Ya. Sebab selama ni saya tak pernah campur. Tapi kalau dah campur tu, prejudis tu dapat dihindarkan sedikit demi sedikit. Saya dapat kenal pelbagai kawan dari bangsa lain.

Mr. Yi: Kamu berapa lama lagi dekat sini?

Aku: Next week is my last week.

Mr. Yi: Selamat berjaya untuk apa yang akan awak tempuhi nanti.

Aku: (Gelak dan sengih-sengih) Thank you Mr. Yi. Good luck to you too.

Dan kami pun beredar ke matlamat masing-masing. Jadi, aku pun tak tau nak cakap apa. Masuk kali ini dah dua kali aku dengar isu yang lebih kurang sama. Tapi yang 1st adalah comparison antara JPA dan biasiswa lain. Dia (kenal kat tempat interview) tak apply langsung untuk JPA sebab dia tahu agak mustahil untuk dapat. Lagi sekali, aku pun tak tau nak cakap apa. Cuma, beringatlah. Kita diberi peluang, kena gunakan dengan sebaik mungkin. Jangan dah susah nak ambil peluang nanti, mulalah nak bising-bising.

Practical Day 36: New Trainee

It is a normal day. I mean normal because I didn’t feel the Sunday. It is like suddenly Monday without I’m realizing it. That might be helpful so I did not miss much the Sunday. Well, for today I’m being promised by our PM to be given few people to help me to clear up the JB and UH. So, after the toolbox meeting I just waited as he organized the workers. Then he gives me 3 people to clear up the items. Then Abang Ijan said to me ‘There is so many kongsi kongs you have here”. As I always borrow his people then that is why he said like that to me.

So I just show them where to collect those items. A confrontation occured as PM pointed towards me as he looks at me like I don’t know how to manage these people. Even though I said OK, but I chose to ignore his order. As far as I’m concern, my job will be completed. No matter how they do it. InsyaAllah.

So I just walked around as the Banglas collecting those JB and UH. In the same time, my mind is thinking to plan how the works are going to be done. The most challenging part is to bring up the JB and UH at the drainage which is so deep. With the tower crane is broken down and mobile crane is too busy, so I have ordered them to transfer it manually. Luckily, halfway the work being done Abang Ijan advised me to use Backhoe as to transport those item at the upper level. Alhamdulillah, everything is working well even though it took some time. Unfortunately, as I thought that these items can be delivered today, it turns out bad. 3 Banglas is reduced to 2 as one of them fell sick. Plus there are so many JB and UH not yet arranged on the palettes. So I decided to cancel the delivery for today. But promise to the lorry driver for tomorrow morning delivery, InsyaAllah. However, I believe I do a right thing. So I don’t have to be afraid. Then I’m hoping that everything turns out fine for tomorrow. Amin.

Later I returned to the office. Then Abang Syed said to me “There, your pal.” What? So I looked at young people. I’m thinking about a new trainee as what Nurul said to me last month. So we are having a new trainee. Pity on him, his home at Serdang, the site at Desa Melawati. Making thing worst, he don’t have any transport. So he just learning as first day like what I did. Climbing to the uppermost floor but much more beneficial to him. As he learned from Alex, he will quit tomorrow. So the trainee learn a lot about architectural works.

As he is my new friend and fighting alongside me, I offered him to Setiawangsa Station as he took public transport. I’m afraid that what I said to him in the van will frighten him. I hope not. As I motivate him that we must fight for our survival of fighting. Well, I will finish in next week so I dare to say like that. However, two weeks is a long period. Nothing can be taken for granted. I must do my best also.

Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 35: Visited


I don’t know what to sent out for today. As I don’t know what item are already arranged. The only thing in my mind is to collect the entire ladder frame, JB and UH. As I walked suddenly Swandi (Site Agent, Indonesian) said to me there is a bulk of ladder frame. As I looked towards it, wow, that is so many. So I can make a delivery. So I arranged people and lorry driver in the evening so I can have time to arrange it.

Then I got message from Auk. He wants to visit me at site. So I said ok and I’m free in the morning. I waited for him long enough but he did not arrive at the time that I feel suitable. He arrived few minutes after lunch hour started. So I just take him a walk inside and show him a show level. Explained him few things and we went out for lunch. In my mind, I thought he want to leave if I have some work to do, beside he want to stay and watched me working. So be it. I just let him watch me working. He also helps me when I’m measuring area. But he also watches me handling the entire ‘sent out’ work that I always did.

Pity Auk, I can’t entertain him properly. Only after I finished all the works at 4 then I took him for prayers and explained him several issue about this site. Then after finished working hours both of us called other friends to watch a match between Holland and Japan. Yeah, we are having a very fine evening today.

Practical Day 34: Top Of The World



Well, I don’t know what to do today. But I already promised by Abang Syed to learn about ‘setting out’. So I’m eager to wait for it. So I just acting busy, key in what I have calculated yesterday into the computer. But, I can’t. I know I’m not good at acting. Then at almost 10 a.m. I’ve been busted by Ting, the 2nd boss. Well, I want to call him 2nd boss no more. Just say his name, Ting. He looked at me and asked usual thing. “What items delivered today?” and it is so typical. But I don’t have anything to be sent out. I said to him, “You said that you want to arrange somebody to collect those items that scattered all over the place. So I don’t have anything to be delivered today”. “Whoa, so you just sit over there and do nothing?” he replied with high voice. “Well, what should I do” I replied then. He rush to the phone and called somebody. Now, I have a job. A bit sad that I probably won’t be able to join Abang Syed later.

So I called a number on the wall, the ‘kepala’ of Bangla. This is much hardcore. The Bangla doesn’t understand Malay at all. But fortunately, the ‘kepala’ can understand Malay. So the system just like this, give instructions to the ‘kepala’ and later he will order his subordinate to finish the task. It is simple. But the issue here is Ting actually steal Abang Ijan people. So he is angry but I explained to him that I can wait for his job. What an idiot! Taking people just like that, he should ask Abang Ijan properly, not like that.

I take this time opportunity to talk with Abang Azhar, person from JKS the subcontractor. He tells me about the general view of the upper part of the hierarchy. About the issues arises between staffs and bosses. How to handle and how to accept the fact that we just a subordinate. I hear with interest for his entire story.

Okay, today is Friday. I went home and do my prayer. Later I returned to the office I’ve seen the Bangla is doing their work. It is fine. So I just give orders then they will arrange all my items. Now it is time to follow Abang Syed to climb the Block A. But we have been separated because I have some stomachache to be settled first. So then I climbed to the 16th floor, where there are no bricks yet. Then I called him to ask his whereabouts. He is at level 10. Oh! I reached here first.

Later he comes to the place where I wait. He said that the ‘setting out’ couldn’t be done. It is too late. Maybe tomorrow they will proceed. Then he teaches me about the level. There are marks everywhere and they are at same level. This is being done by the surveyor. They marked the spot to notify the level of the middle floor. This is important as the renderer and other works will refer to this line. So today I just learned this.

But wait, he then ask me to follow him to another level. Level 17 a.k.a. upper penthouse. I’ve been here first, the penthouse before their real owner. Wow, for the first time I reached the uppermost part of the building (excluding water tank level). There are no roofs yet as it is open. I look around me, look for the KL view. It is so beautiful. I feel that I don’t want to return down. I want to stay here for much longer. But it last only for 15 minutes as Abang Syed want to go back. Then I watched the view for the last time. Wow, it is so beautiful.

Practical Day 33: Nil

I come to the office with ease, relaxed feeling. Nothing much bothered me as I knew already what I will do. The task waited for me today is to measure some area of the condominium. Not much I think, but with few variety of rooms. The day before, I already thinking what Eddie the PM will ask me. He must be asking ‘What items delivered today?”. So I prepared with the excuse that “Ting already asked people to collect those thing that scattered all over the place. And for me, I will wait until everything is ready then I can sent it out”. Yes, that thing happened and thanks Allah because I already planned what to answer.

Okay, at the morning I just calculating the area that I already measured yesterday. I colored it with my highlighter. Then Ting (2nd Boss) called me and asked about the delivery, so I just answer like what he said yesterday. So, he looks around at my table and asked me to follow Ah Man. I replied that I already planned with Ah Man at 1 p.m. So he just keep quiet and do his job.

So I sit at my table and doing the calculation slowly. Then it is lunch hour so I just go out and bought some bread. That’s it for my lunch, not much. I returned to the office and just browsing the internet. Now I just wait for Ah Man. He entered the office but nothing happened. He doesn’t ask me to follow him. So later he walked out the office and then I don’t know what to do. But still I continue with my calculating job, but much more slowly as I don’t want to finish my job much early.

At 4 p.m., I already finished my calculation. So I just sit there and waited for 5 p.m. At some point, I expressed my worry to Abang Syed that my job has finished. That makes me worry for tomorrow. Later he offered me to follow him tomorrow to do some inspection. I don’t expect this but without hesitate I just accept his offer. I want to learn. I hope tomorrow there will be nothing disturbing me as I want to learn. InsyaAllah.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 32: Relieve




I came to the site with so many things in my head. My lecturer is coming, Eddie the PM wanted me to deliver items out and Ah Man wanted me to accompany him to do the measurement. First thing first, even with my bag clinging around me, I approach for Pak Martin. I asked him to help me and fortunately he is willing to help me to arrange the Jack Base and U-Head. FYI, PM wanted me to deliver the frame but I take the JB and UH as the replacement as I don’t know how to solve the problem of the ladder frame.

As Pak Martin arranged the JB and UH, I took a chance to deliver my bag to the office and ready the new paperwork for this delivery. As I waited Pak Martin by his side, the lorry driver passed through us and he stopped. He asked me where the item wanted to be delivered. Wow, I’m surprised. It is hard yesterday and today he even offered me to deliver those items. I don’t want to miss this chance. As I promised him that I will arrange somebody to lift the frames from the drain into the lorry.

Directly after Pak Martin arranged the JB and UH, I asked him to help me again. To help me to deal with the tower crane and to arrange with the lorry driver. He kindly wanted to help me. Now, the JB and UH are ready and I called Abang Din, the smaller lorry driver to confirm with him to make a delivery. As I called him, Pak Martin already brings the lorry to the side of the drain. He is ready to lift the frames. Wow, Pak Martin is really easy. I don’t have to give specific instruction. Just general confirmation and he can do it on his own. Not like Bangla, I really appreciate it.

So I just look at him. Abang Nizam once told me that people like Pak Martin is easy to handle. We don’t have to worry too much. If we give him clear order and he can do it, he will definitely do it without burdening us. He is also versatile, which means that he can do many works. So I just look at him with his assistant lifting up the frames from the drain. I don’t have to yell or to help much. It is being done easily. This is what I called ‘problem solved by nature’. I know that Allah is the one who arrange the situation. Alhamdulillah.

Now, my lecturer called me. He already arrived. I gave Pak Martin last instruction to pick up other frames at other place then I greet my lecturer, Mr. Yong Chua Bon. He taught me ‘Static and Dynamic’ in my first semester. I still remember him even though he did not know me. So I greet him with a smile. Then we get into our office. This event makes me nervous. Mr. Tong not at office, Mr. Ting is too busy. Mr. Ting also instructed me to not disturb Eddie, the PM. So I’m blank. I asked Mr. Yong to wait for a while as I searching for Mr. Tong. As I called him, he already at level 16 doing some inspection. Fortunately, He sends Mr. Chong to replace him. I don’t know what he discussed with my lecturer as Mr. Chong never instructed me to do anything.

I waited at the meeting table. Look at them discussing about me. Later after they finished talking, Mr. Yong called me to discuss something. So he questions me about what I have done here with several other questions. Later it is finished, our meeting. Then I said thanks to him for visiting me and then we dismissed.

Then I rushed to search for Pak Martin to continue my job. Again I satisfied, he almost done with his job. Even without me watching with the fact that my lecturer is visiting me. Then I just preparing the paper work and the lorry driver send the item. Then I have a breakfast with Abang Nizam. Actually we talked a lot but I don’t know what to write here. One thing is, Abang Nizam is the one who granted permission for Pak Martin to help me. I thanked him with full of gratefulness. He added that if he knows that my lecturer is coming, I should say that Abang Nizam is my supervisor so he can back me up a lot. But the thing has passed. Nothing can be done anymore.

Later in the evening, I just send out the JB and UH that left. Funny thing is, Abang Din the lorry driver forgot to close his lorry door. I already pointed it but he didn’t notice I presumed. Later he stopped and he closed the door. Maybe he is too tired. So sorry about him. But that is his job, he must do it. Later nothing much happened, but I feel ashamed for a scandal that arises inside our office. I hope I can avoid it. So I just go back home and nothing inside of my mind. Just wanted to sleep and wake up for tomorrow. Hope, nothing surprised me tomorrow.

Ya Allah, Allahumma Yassir, Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.





“PATRIOTISM IS SUPPORTING YOUR COUNTRY ALL THE TIME, AND YOUR GOVERNMENT WHEN IT DESERVES IT” – Mark Twain -

Practical Day 31: Unbelievable


I feel bad about today but with my determination, I come early to the site. I have to plan how to manage the frame to be sent out. Also I have to ensure the correct frame to be sent out. Fortunately, I manage to realize that the frame that I thought the one which will be sent out is wrong. It is supposed to be another type of frame. Still I have a time to think about the correct frames.

So I dealt with another lorry driver, Suyanto which he drives a much bigger lorry. He said he will be free at 10 a.m. so I waited for it. But at the same time, I don’t know how to lift the frames into the lorry. But I hope the nature will take care the problem. As I waited, DBKL come check our site. The guard says “Look, the person who wanted to be fed is coming”. I can get what he is saying. And I just observed the situation. And truly, the unbelievable act happened. It is ****ery. I can’t believe I can see the situation right in front of my eyes. Even though it is not direct but the one who gives the ****ery told us how the thing going on. Unbelievable 1.

It is already 10 a.m. and I meet Suyanto one more time. Again he stressed out that he has no time. He has to finish his job. He decided to do my delivery at 3 p.m. I don’t think so. I have another thing coming on. I have to measure some area at Futsal building with Ah Man at 1 p.m. Now, there are several things clashed. Never mind.

Forget to tell, I already deal with my lecturer to meet me tomorrow morning. So I guess there is no activity that I have to handle as I want to make myself free to see my lecturer. It is a deal. And later in the evening as I said, I do some measurement with Ah Man. I thought there will be many places need to be measured, suddenly it is one only. So I just relaxed, and do some calculation in the office while listening to the seniors about cross culture chat till 5 p.m. So I packed my bag and wanted to go home.

As I walked through the walkway, I saw PM in front of me. I just smiled and he suddenly asked me about today delivery. I said that I couldn’t make even one delivery for today. So he asked why. Then I explained that the lorry driver canceled it because he has to do something else. Then he asked me whether I have planned for tomorrow delivery. Then I said no. Then suddenly he raised his voice out of anger because of this. So I just stood still. He wanted me to make an arrangement for tomorrow before I can go home.

Hurm, he didn’t know that my lecturer will come visit me tomorrow. I’m stuck. I burst my anger in my heart. Now, I decided to cancel my plan with Ah Man tomorrow, and changed it with the delivery. In the morning, I have to manage whether the jack base and u-head, or the frames. I have to do it whatsoever. With my lecturer is coming, so I have to prepare some simple task before I meet him. Then only I can truly do my job.

Honestly what I want to say here, I know the order of the delivery works is directly under our PM, Eddie. But Ah Ting, my 2nd boss wanted to lighten his burden with giving me the measuring job. If I didn’t do the measuring job, Ah Man will go mad on me. However, that work supposed to be done by Ah Ting. Then for me I know the delivery job is urgent. Now, I’m stuck. With my lecturer is coming. I don’t know what to do. Plus I don’t have even one Kongsi Kong to help me to clear the job. I believe the kongsi kong is very important to help me. I’m not doing it by myself.

Again, and again, and again. Ya Allah, Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 30: Still Working




Today is the thirtieth day of my training, theoretically. This is including my three days off because of sickness. Sorry about the early calculation that I’ve made earlier. The total day that I supposed to undergo my training is 47 days. That means it is 17 days left for me. Can’t wait for the end of the training. Still I’m thinking that after I finished this, I still have to go to work, and situation will be the same. Nothing much different. Only I hope that if I can choose a company, I don’t want to work with Prinsiptek anymore.

Okay, it is Monday. I don’t feel the Sunday yesterday since I’ve been packed with so many activities. Again, after the housekeeping work Abang Nizam treat me for a breakfast. Later I arranged the delivery of Jack Base and U-head (again). There is also a delivery in the evening. I managed to make two trips for today. Alhamdulillah.

Nothing much happened or I couldn’t remember things that happened because I write this on the next day. Added with bad mood, makes me want to write less. That’s it.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 29: Weird Saturday


I’ve already planned for two tasks for today. One, to deliver (again) the Jack Base and U-Head to the Team Aid, the supplier and two, to measure a lot of area on the site. So I asked my 2nd boss which one that I have to take as the most important. So he asked me to deliver the items and asked for two trips from the lorry driver, again.

I did that, appeal to the lorry driver to make two trips for today. However, he always gives some excuses to skip the work. He only can make one, and that make my job harder. But, earlier at the outside of the office I just walk out from the office at the same time with PM. As he walked in front of me, he saw so many Jack Base that scattered around the office. So he called my name and wanted me to clear these things. So I just do that on my own.

However, the safety officer Abang Nizam saw me do the work. So he asked me to stop. He said that I supposed to order the Kongsi Kong to do the job. So he called one of his men to help me to clear these things. Later he explained to me that he can use his men to do such job. I should not show that an officer like me can do the job. That will make those kongsi kong much more lazy. So kind of him to help me. No one ever concern about me and never give me some advice or help unless I asked for it. But Abang Nizam knows that my experience is limited and he sincerely help me even though I said nothing.

Long story short (sorry for making story very long), I finished the delivery for one trip. I return back to the office and realize a meeting is about to start. But Abang Syed asks me to go out to Mamak to take a drink. I refuse as I’m afraid to go out from site during working hours. So he asks me to go to the nearby warong instead to take a break. For that, I agreed. So we hang out together and drink some beverage to clear our thirst.

Later we return to the office and I saw the meeting is at the height of its agenda. I just sit at one chair and listen to them. I wanted to learn what are they discussing, and what issues that arise as the construction is in progress. Later the meeting finished. I just return to my spot and wait for orders or for the lunch hour.

As I waited, Abang Nizam called me. He asked me whether I’m free or not. So I said that I’m free right now but I have something to do in the evening. So he asked me to follow him right away. So I just follow him. I thought I have some work to help him. I ride his car and he brings me to the hardware shop. I’m thinking that he wanted to buy a lot of things, so he wants my help to carry those things. Suddenly, he just by a socket and plug, a small plastic bag. And I am the one who carry the plastic. Never mind. Later he brought me for a lunch. He treats me for today. Alhamdulillah. Since we have a lot of time, we talked about many things. At one point, I realize that he came from our hometown back in Semenyih. He even knows my late uncle and my cousins. What a surprise.

Later we returned to the office, a bit late. But I’m afraid of nothing since I came back with Abang Nizam. Just that simple. Later my 2nd boss asked me a lot about the delivery. And there was something that I don’t have a mood to tell about. I just sit at my place and it is almost 3 p.m. I saw Abang Nizam is dealing with Kongsi Kong about an injury happened on one of his friend. Again, Abang Nizam saw me do nothing and he asked me to follow him. So I just follow. We visited the injured person. He has been cut by a knife. The cut is deep. I just look at Abang Nizam do his work. He advises the kongsi kong to treat his injury. Later we left the kongsi area. He looked at his watch and it is already 3 p.m. He invited me to join him to take a drink, I can’t refuse.

So we just go to some mamak stall and take a drink. Here, he is very kind. He knows that I’m having a cold right now. He bought me two Panadol Soluble. He said this will ease my cold. I don’t know what to say. I’m stunned with his act. I think this is the only time that we became this close. There was one time before that we have a chit chat but that was a few weeks ago. And today he treats me like I’m his brother. I really don’t know how to react, the only thing is I said thank you to him.

So we return to the office and I really continue with my job. Meeting with the lorry driver and he explained to me some problems that he encountered when he deliver the items. So I say sorry and he says okay. I will do better next time, InsyaAllah. I just deal with Martin, the kongsi kong about the Jack Base and U-Head to be arranged. So today finished just fine. Alhamdulillah. I hope Mr. Tong will consider deeply my request. At the start of this morning, I have requested to Mr. Tong to be changed of my work. Since I have to race with my time here. I have to learn much more about civil works. So I requested to get involved in infra works or architectural works. He said he will consider about it later. Ya Allah, please make that thing come true. I have to learn much more things beside QS things.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Rizalt Dan Bahasa Jepun

Teringat masa keputusan PMR dulu, cerita Senario turut melawakkan bagaimana orang tua hendak menyebut ‘result’ dengan betul. “Apa, Rizal? Rizalt? Risal?” itulah dialog Azli Senario ketika itu.Walaubagaimanapun, itulah yang hendak dikisahkan disini. Result, baru saja diumumkan. Betapa liat hendak menundukkan website UiTM untuk deterobos masuk. Keesokan harinya barulah dapat ditembusi.

Bukan hendak mengisahkan bagaimana susahnya hendak menyemak keputusan peperiksaaan, tapi keputusan peperiksaan itu sendiri. Saya tahu, sudah beberapa post yang lalu menceritakan mengenai ini. Namun kisah saya senantiasa di dalam kedukaan. Sejak menulis, tidak selalu result yang ada menceriakan. Kali ini juga.

Tapi sedikit lain untuk kali ini. Alhamdulillah, impian hendak mendapat 4 rata sememangnya sukar. Saya tahu ianya seolah-olah satu angan-angan saja. Tidak lebih dari itu. Walaupun saya sentiasa berdoa ke arah itu, namun rezekinya mungkin tidak dibenarkan lagi. Alhamdulillah, saya mengaku saya mendapat anugerah dekan kali ini, namun nilainya tidaklah sebesar mana. Ramai lagi yang turut serta mendapat penghormatan ini. Apatah lagi bagi mereka yang sudah selalu cemerlang. Kali ini lebih lagi. Saya percaya, ramai lagi yang mendapat 4 rata dan apalah sangat dengan tiga.tujuhlima. Bukan hendak menjadi manusia yang tidak bersyukur. Sesungguhnya kesyukuran itu amat besar. Tidak disangka mendapat sebegini. Tapi melihatkan seorang rakan yang tidak ceria walaupun mendapat AD, menyebabkan saya tertanya.

Tertanya, kenapa tak berpuas hati. Secara lojik, antara dua. Samada beliau sudah bertungkus lumus namun rezeki agak kurang, mungkin menyebabkan kedukaan masih ada walaupun agak cemerlang. Satu lagi, mungkin usahanya adalah atas penipuan, jadi kepuasan itu tidak dapat hadir dalam jiwanya. Bagi saya, saya terasa puas, tapi tak bermakna mahu berhenti. Puas kenapa? Kerana saya tahu nilai keputusan itu adalah atas hasil usaha diri saya sendiri dan kemudian diizinkan oleh Allah. Alhamdulillah, usaha itu Tuhan mahu membenarkan saya mendapat dengan setimpal sebagai hasil. Jadi saya amat gembira melihatkan keringat saya terdahulu menghasilkan gpa yang sebegini.

Teringatkan kayuhan basikal di pagi hari, setengah jam lebih awal dari yang lain. Saya terpaksa keluar awal kerana takutkan kesibukan lalulintas. Tambahan pula, saya hanya mengayuh di sisi jalan yang sempit, takut-takut menyukarkan laluan orang lain. Teringat juga penantian yang lama sebelum memasuki kelas kerana sudah datang awal. Pulang pula yang paling lewat. Tapi sekarang itu menjadi manis. Untuk orang lain, saya tak tahu. Tapi sepanjang semester lepas, saya tahu apa yang mereka lakukan.

Menipu, itu mungkin termasuk dalam kamus ‘usaha diri’ mereka. Saya tak mahu tanya dan cuba tanya pun saya tidak mahu. Apa perasaan mereka ketika ini. Kata kakak, mereka sudah tentu merasa puas dan bangga dengan nombor yang tertera pada result mereka. Tapi kakak dengan tenang mententeramkan jiwa saya. Menyatakan tindakan saya benar, tidak perlu menipu. Apalah nilai gpa tinggi, tapi atas dasar penipuan.

Saya pun tidaklah sejujur mana. Meniru sedikit dalam assignment, perkara biasa. Tapi sepatutnya perkara sekecil itupun tidak boleh dianggap biasa. Tapi itulah ‘limit’ saya. Saya tak mahu lakukan lebih teruk dari itu. Mahu meniru dan membawa toyol didalam ‘test’? Saya masih ‘taboo’ untuk itu. Pendapat saya, bagi mereka itu adalah salah satu dalam kategori ‘usaha’. Tapi hakikatnya itu adalah salah. Jadi, lantaklah dengan kehebatan mereka. Tidak tulen. Pada saya, nilai gpa saya itu seolah-olah bersinar semacam emas. Saya pun tak ngerti kenapa begitu. Walaupun ‘society’ mendapat B-, ianya tetap semacam bersinar. Itulah nilaian sebenar keupayaan saya terhadap subjek itu. Tulen, itulah yang lebih berharga.

Sebenarnya, teringin bercerita mengenai Bahasa Jepun yang saya pelajari sebagai bahasa ketiga di sini. Alhamdulillah, kali ini Mariam-sensei memberi saya A+. Saya yakin, istilah sebenar bukanlah ‘beri’, tetapi itulah yang saya ‘deserved’. Dengan integriti Mariam-sensei selama tiga semester, istilah ‘beri’ atau ‘bagi’ bukanlah mainan untuk beliau. Seseorang pelajar itu akan mendapat markah atas apa yang mereka berhak. Dan berhak pada saya untuk kali ini, jatuh pada A+. Syukur.

Bukannya apa, ini menunjukkan hattrick saya dalam perjuangan Bahasa Jepun ini. Selama tiga semester saya berjuang berseorangan di rumah sewa untuk menuruti minat diri tak disangka hasilnya adalah amat berbaloi. Cuma berteman di kelas dengan rakan seperjuangan cuma bezanya, keempat-empat mereka adalah perempuan dan mereka dapat mengulangkaji bersama dan berbincang bersama. Saya amat jarang mendapat peluang sebegitu. Cuma semester terakhir yang lepas, adalah juga rakan yang sudi bertandang ke rumah untuk belajar bersama walaupun sekali saja.

Terkenang kembali, pertama kali belajar Jepun, terpaksa berdialog dengan dinding sahaja. Tiada peneman yang dapat dibuat berbicara bersama. Terus-terusan dengan latihan dan ulangkaji berseorangan. Jika ada masalah, terpaksa bertanya melalui SMS ataupun panggilan. Paling tidak, menunggu hingga hari esok dan bertanya pada rakan sekelas perempuan. Namun, saya sebenarnya nak menyatakan rasa kesyukuran tak terhingga kerana dianugerahkan rakan seperjuangan sebegini. Rakan yang tak menyusahkan malah membantu pada tahap yang terbaik menyebabkan saya terharu. Masing-masing memberikan usaha yang terbaik untuk menjayakan kerja berkumpulan terutamanya dalam projek video pelajar.

Kenapa menjadi gembira sehingga begini? Bukannya apa, saya baru sahaja mendapat tahu bahawa bukanlah sesuatu yang mudah untuk mendapat A dari Mariam-sensei. Jadi penghargaan ini menjadi amat bernilai pada saya. Dengan ‘kebersihan’ markah yang dijaga oleh Mariam-sensei, menunjukkan ketulenan keputusan peperiksaan Jepun bagi seseorang itu. Saya tak dapat menyangkal, tiada satu subjek lain pun yang dapat menunjukkan markah yang bersih selain Bahasa Jepun dengan Mariam-sensei. Itulah ketulenan sejati yang saya terlihatkan kali ini didalam Degree. Alhamdulillah. Cerita tidak tamat disini. Kami masih ada Latihan Industri dan satu lagi semester terakhir yang dijangka menjadi amat sibuk. Doakan kami.

Practical Day 28: HQ Job

Today I just have to deliver the jack Base and U-Head, as usual. My target is to make the lorry driver to try to make two trips for today. Unfortunately, he cannot make it as he has many reasons. I couldn’t force him to do so, so I just let the situation be like that. Later my 2nd boss asked me to return to the office. He wants to give me a new task.

As I enter the office he suddenly at the front of the door, so I just asked him what he wanted. As he sees me sweat heavily so he just let me rest for a while and wait for Shima, the new site clerk. Then I waited for her to finish her job. Later my 2nd boss asked us to go to HQ and deliver some documents and learn how to key in the Delivery Order data into the system. I’m amazed at first because today is Friday, and he always asked me to make a travel on Friday. What the hell. I have religious obligations on day like this. I just go with Shima because the heavy part is for her, not me. I just become the back up as I must learn that thing also.

So two of us travel to the HQ at Subang Jaya. I mentioned to her that today is Friday. I have to do my Friday prayer and it might disturb our plan. So we decided that Shima will learn the key in and later I will learn from her. So I just go to my house at Shah Alam and pray there.

As I arrive at Section 7, Shah Alam I’ve seen my friends motorcycle. That means my friends are at home right now. I have some chit chat with them since we haven’t seen for a long time. Then we go for Friday prayer together. Later I checked our result and this I will tell you in other post.

I rush back to the HQ and Shima is still learning how to key in those data. I thought we can go back to the site directly after I finished my prayer. So I’m stuck at the HQ for a long time, not until 5 but it is until 6.40 p.m. What a miserable day, but not much. I have something happy in my mind.

Along the day, we learn to be as a team to finish the job. Our teacher, Kak Miza does not hesitant to teach us. She does not angry as we learn slowly. She still teach us with full of interest as this is important thing to be done. Even this take too much time, but she let us learn on our pace that is why I’m not mad at this situation. Shima feel that she wanted to stay here, working here since the environment is very friendly. Not tough like at site. For me, this is not my job. I just play my ‘role’ as a student. Learning everything that they force me to learn even though it is not related with me. But everything is fine since Kak Miza is very nice and kind toward us. Finish the day, we just wanted to go back. To return to our home and get some rest. And another thing in my mind, I want to claim my overtime and also the claim for fuel for travelling from site to the HQ. Sorry, I don’t have so much funds to bear this on my own.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 27: A Half Day

As I write this I’m listening to a song entitled ‘Tatakau Monotachi’ which means Those Who Fighting. I really like this song. The piano sounds make me feel serene even though it is hard. A fast song which some soft element inserted in it. Okay, never mind.

Today marked a full month I’m here. Started from 10th May and today is 10th June. I’ve learned many things particularly to deal with peoples. It is hard and so many because it cannot be learned from classrooms and lectures. Today I’ve been scolded again but never mind, I can ignore it already. With the advice from new site clerk make me much more enlightened.

It is only for half day today. I have to accompany my mom to the clinic for some blood testing. It finished even before 8 a.m. but I’ve already asked for half day so I just rest for the remaining hours. Until it is 12 noon then I prepared to work again. I don’t know what’s going to happen for today. As I arrive, I feel a lot of differences. Everything already started and finished their lunch hour. Everyone is working hard and the meeting which relates with progress report I’ve made yesterday already finished. But as I arrived my 2nd boss said that the Jack Base and U-head already collected and were put at some place. So I have to arrange a delivery to the supplier. I just ask something and he scolded me back. What the hell. I asked him in a good manner and he replied with anger. I cannot understand until now. Go to hell to him.

I ran away and checked those items. I didn’t return back to the office. For what? It is better for me to stay at the basement and take a stare at those items. I don’t have to deal with that idiot. Until at one time my PM himself called me through his handset. I’m surprised. He asked me about the arrangement of the delivery. So I said it is already arranged and we just have to wait for tomorrow. So he hangs up and I just returned to the office. So I fill up the paperwork and have some chit chat with senior worker. Everything later turned just fine. Nothing makes me hectic. But I just wait to use the computer, the internet. I want to check my result. Unfortunately, as usual it cannot be done. Maybe I have to wait for tomorrow. InsyaAllah.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 26: Making Progress Report

I thought I have to do some measurement today. So I waited for a long time for Ah Man to do the job. However he didn’t come. After some problems were sorted out, I’ve been called by the Project Manager with the new site clerk, Kak Ita and Ah Ting to his office. The issue was to finish up the progress report that usually being done by Nurul, the former site clerk.

It’s mean I’m the main force in completing the report. Even though the de facto leader is Kak Ita that will guide us through the completion of the report. I’m the thruster of the work. The site clerk is totally new and she doesn’t know anything and it is impossible to rely on her. I do it step by step, remembering the steps that have been thought by Nurul two weeks earlier. Fortunately, Nurul has left a file, file of the main core of the report. I only have to photocopy some parts that been used again and again and other parts were already prepared by Kak Ita and I only have to print it out. Some other parts, I only have to request from others persons that related.

Because this is my first time do it alone with Kak Ita is so busy, I have to do it slowly, understanding as a whole the progress report. Alhamdulillah, there was a new site clerk which give some hand to help me. It is time consuming, I take a break for a while during lunch and I saw the site clerk doesn’t go out for lunch. I believe she will go hungry after this. The report completion will took much time with no experience person are going to lead.

I do it however until it is 4 p.m. Finally I completed the whole set of progress report. I cannot believe it. I couldn’t be satisfied right now, there are another 15 sets need to be completed. So I rush with photocopying job and do it again and again. One by one personnel left the office to go home. Now I feel what Nurul felt when I left her early two weeks ago. Still me, new site clerk and Kak Ita are struggling to finish the report. Finally at 8.40 the real time, we finished all the copies. The only task to be done is binding works. Maybe it can be done for tomorrow by the new site clerk because I have to take my mother to the clinic in early morning tomorrow. Alhamdulillah for now.

Practical Day 25: Calling Day

I knew I don’t have much work for yesterday. So as usual I will be nervous to wait again for today. But it is not too long, early of the morning my 2nd boss called me to settle the Purchase Order (PO). This is the list of purchase made by the company or by the main-con, or sub-con. So I have to call the supplier to ensure the delivery of the items. To know when the item can be delivered. That’s all. But as far I remember I believe those jobs are hard or heavy for me. I don’t know why. Even my 1st boss take over from me for a call.

Enough of that and the lunch time came. I thought after lunch I will go for measuring with Ah Man again. I wait but nothing happened. Then my 2nd boss called me and give me some instruction. He said I must study the plan of KLFA Administration and futsal block for now. Because tomorrow there will be a hefty job awaits me. I have to measure the huge block of KLFA. So, okay I just did it. I studied the plan and later I just return back home. Waiting for tomorrow.

Practical Day 24: Learning By Myself







I knew I always stuck with U-head and Jack Base work. I don’t know when it will end. With the fact that I always dissatisfied with QS works, I want badly any civil works. It is 5th week already and I must do something. So after I’ve been given a task to collect UH and JB again, I took some time to gain my motivation back. I just sit at a place to search for my momentum.

After break, I gain my feelings and started to make a call. I call Saga as the one who in charge with UH and JB at the highest level of block B. He said that he can make those items to be put down to ground level from the highest floor. So I just waited but nothing had happened.

At this point, I just sit at the edge of a basement car park and look at slope work. There I saw Mr. Lim finishing his job. Suddenly he already at my back. Now I just stand up and asked from him a lot about slope works. So he explained to me with drawing plan on his hand. I’m delighted so I can ask him freely about the slope work. Now I know, if I want to learn what I want I have to do it by myself.

In the evening after lunch, I asked Bro Syed to allow me to follow him. As I overheard that he wanted to check for water proofing. So I just follow him and he teaches me how to inspect the water proofing work. Now I know much more thing that I wanted and I’m eager for more. But I have to make my real work as my priority. So I will change between my work and when I want to study about civil works. InsyaAllah, with Allah helps, I will be able to learn much more without outside interference.

Plus, I have a chance to enter the kongsi area. It is almost like a slumdog. It is pity for them to stay inside there. But that is life. They have to accept it. Me too if I am destined to go through their life. But I hope the life will be much comfortable than what I saw earlier.

Allahumma yassir wa la tu’assir, Rabbi tammim bilkhair.

Practical Day 22: Couldn’t Stand It

I came as usual by I knew I’m not well. I continue with photocopying job. Later my 2nd boss asked me to do some Purchase Order (PO) to be given to the related person. At this time I feel very dizzy to even stand up. So I asked my 2nd boss to go to the clinic to get a treatment. So he let me go and ask me to keep the MC certificate.

I think it is the pain on my chest yesterday. As I checked, my doctor said that my fever has affected me a lot. The pain on my chest is because of gastric that consume my inner part. So she let me to rest for today and tomorrow. Thank Allah. That I wanted really bad. So I just rest and as far as I know I sleep all day long.

Practical Day 21: Heartache




There was sudden general assembly today. I don’t know why. My colleague says that they can conduct this event anytime they want. For this time, they will organize massive cleaning effort involving all the workers. So sudden I am leading 20 people to do some job. As I watching them my heart felt very hurt (30/06/2010: It was a gastric). I couldn’t do anything. I just sit down.

After 10 a.m., I was given other task. I couldn’t remember what it was. The thing that I knew our secretary being snatch by young malay. Curse on them. Later on the evening I have to make a fast DO delivery to the HQ. That’s all I can write.

Practical Day 20: Working Through Sickness

Again, there are other milestones for me. The twentieth day and it is a new month, June. I came to the site without motivation. I’m not feeling fully healthy. So I just came because there is no MC anymore. Early in the morning I am hanging out at canteen with Bro Syed just to buy some time. Later we just continue our job.

My 2nd boss later asked me to finish up the jack base and u-head issue. Again, I have no men right now. However I still check it out to observe how much left at the basement. Surprisingly there are four women collecting those things and arrange it on palettes. As I investigate later I knew that they are working under direct order from Project Manager. It is good, so I don’t have to think too much.

Then I came back to the office my 2nd boss asked me to go to a hardware shop to collect data about availability of PVC folding door. It took me almost an hour to locate the shop and sometime later to deal with the owner. Finish then.

I parked my van at the usual spot, where there is a natural bench located near it. I’m so tired. No energy inside me. I’ve lost my appetite for a few days now. I’ve got a fever, diarrhea, sore throat, headache and many more. So I just try to fight these diseases. I sit on the natural bench and take a breath for a while. It seems my breath now became short due to these diseases.

Later, I returned to the office. After I briefed to my 2nd boss about the PVC folding door, he directly asked me to do another thing which involve going upside of the slope. So I asked his generosity to let me rest a bit because I’m not totally healthy. So he just smiled and let me rest. I do what he asked later but unfortunately he gave me a wrong instruction. So I don’t want to do it anymore for today. Maybe tomorrow if it is okay.

Later I just sit and try to take a nap. It might be inappropriate to have a nap while other is working. Suddenly Abang Nizam wakes me up to make sure my condition. So I explained why I became like this. “I lost my appetite so I did not eat. The consequence is I don’t have enough energy”. Then he recommended to me to take energy drink like Gatorade, Livita or any other that I think might help. I like his idea and maybe I’ll do it for tomorrow.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 19: Recovering

Today I created my own holiday. It is because of sickness though. I think it is much better now, not like yesterday. It was too bad yesterday. Even have a slow walk, my headache become worst. For today, I should take some rest to make it totally recover.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 18: Not Feeling Well

I came as usual but most of them come late. I waited for my 2nd boss but he never came. So I don’t know what to do and just studying about possibilities of my further studies. At 11 a.m., my PM suddenly called me to ask about jack base and u-head. He wants to know how much we still owe to the supplier. It is hard to discuss without my 2nd boss around. As he looks at the data, he surprised because there are too many of it. He might want to blame me because I did not do it properly. He asked why there are several palettes did not send out already? I explained it is because the palettes are the u-head 900 mm type. So it cannot be sent out to the supplier, because that is our asset. He wants me asked LP to take those things out at the roadside.

I follow my PM’s order. Now, I already feel some dizziness because of headache. I couldn’t walk to much so I just asked LP to finish it all. It is okay, everything were suddenly at the roadside now. Only thing is I don’t know what to do with that thing anymore.

After lunch I already have a plan. A plan to resolve the 2 weeks delayed work with Ah Man. To measure the trenches inside TNB building. So we just do it and finished in no time. So I returned to the office and do some calculation and key it in to the computer. Generally my job is finished for today. So I just wait as sometime I have a chat with Bro Syed. Later I think I have a fever. My body is hot, heat from the inside. I couldn’t stay focus and I just sat at the corner of the room. It was 5 p.m., time to go home and it was heavy rain. I just go through it and I think that is my fault.

I returned home and my condition become worst. It is fever and I just need some rest.

Allahumma Yassir Wa La Tu’assir, Rabbi Tammim Bil Khair.

Practical Day 17: Working Holiday


Just go to work, no holiday for today. The task for today was little. Accept genset delivery and some measurement for water proofing. Only a simple thing. My brother at home called me asking how to open the Xbox 360 since my nephews and nieces wanted to play it. So I explained how to open it. As I going back home, it was raining and I just go through it. I think this is my fault.

Practical Day 16: No Holiday For Me

I didn’t remember a thing because I write this so much later. What I remember are I hanging out with Bro Syed for breakfast. Later there were so many photocopying job. As I have a chance to ask my 1st boss about holiday entitled to me, my 1st boss denied it. I even called the receptionist at the HQ, suddenly the HQ correct their statement and saying that I’m not going to have my holiday for Hari Wesak. So I have to work for tomorrow. Sigh.

Allahumma Yassir wa la tu’assir, rabbi tammim bil khair.
