Goodbye year 2007 :_(

It's year end again. I still remember last year I was struggling to finish my study and I bought 2 bookshelf from Ikia using my best car.

For me 2007 is not a very good year and luckily it's also not very bad.

Career:

Well 2007 year is one of the most busiest year. I start with five main projects in hand and until today I still have two and it will going to finish soon. Too bad to said that the reward is less than the contribution :_|. I hope it will be better next year.

Love:

Ok, I had promised everyone that I will give everyone summon this year and I still failed to do that :_|. The fortuneteller had told me that I will getting married on year 2008. I hope he is correct :)

health:

No much problem just getting old. After not taking MC for so many years, finally I utilized one this year ;). Start to have some old man symptoms like back pain. And just for your information, don't worry about my litter brother, still strong like last 10 years, wah ha ha ha...

Money:

Money is always not enough especially when you didn't get mid year bonus/increment :). Maybe will try to find a new high paid job :).

As for conclusion, year 2007 is not on my side but it's also not too bad for me. Hope 2008 year will be more better and wish all my dreams come true next year.

Happy new year everyone!

Fish Leong - Worship



你挥霍了我的崇拜;
我戒掉了我的溺爱


I don't really how to translate these words perfectly, here is the translation that I can manage to write:

You overspent my worship on (you);
I stop my love on (you).


Very lovely poem.

Saving SEG meter

Mission: Saving SEG speedometer

Code name: Road runner

Symptom: As refer to my previous post about my ever make best car, my SEG is running at around 140km/h at 5th gear with 3000 RPM. I hope it’s true, but I know there is something wrong with my meter.

Action: I had been asking around the spare part shop to get a new meter but none of them selling and they told me the meter is very expensive if I want to get a new one. The cheaper way is get it from car scrap. Searching around internet and forum but get none positive result. Finally talk to a mechanic and he told me that there is a PCB board behind the meter, since I’m best electronic engineer in town  I plan to save my meter with all the knowledge I have.

Unscrew all the screw on my car dashboard (total got 6 screws) and unplug the cables (total three cables), the dashboard is detached from the car. Everything looks fine on the flexible plastic PCB behind the meter. So I plan to open the plastic cover of the dashboard. Two screws and compression fitting (not sure how to call that kind of connection :p). Once the cover is removed, the meter is now exposed. There are four screws at the back of the speedometer, so I unscrew it and the speedometer is detached. Looking behind the meter, there is a PCB board. No cool solder was found, no burned component, also no lose connection. Almost give up with the saving mission. Suddenly I notice a black material on the top of the meter. Using a multimeter to measure the connection between the two points. A very funny reading come out, 1.4kohms. Finally I got it.




The resistor behind the meter is 3.9kohms, and the black material is “eating” the PCB track and leaving 1.4kohms. So the additional resistance is causing my speedometer running at around 40% higher speed. 1.4/3.9 = 36%, so that the source of the problem.

Since the track can’t be repair, I just solder a small wire to replace the broken track and the mission is complete buy putting back everything to the car.

Result: No need to say too much, my SEG got it correct speed again.

Plan your MC



It sound like crazy, but some of the people can really do it.

If every year you finish your leaves (about 14 days) and your MC (about 18 days). Then include the public holiday (about 20 days). Total of about 52 days of holiday (public, personal and MC) in 1 year, so you only need to work about 4 days a week, 43% of the time you are non productive.

To avoid any lost in productivity, you need to plan our holiday and also MC. But most of the people will try to sick on most busiest day since thinking of it already a mentality sickness, so it is the best time to take MC.

If you are shy guy then you can drink a can or two can of Coke before you go see doctor. Or if you are already use this method too often and try to avoid doctor suspicion that you may have cancel, you can try to tell the doctor you got migraine. Or you can direct tell doctor that you are "sick" and you need MC letter, most of the time the doctor know how to write in the MC.

So remember to plan you holiday and MC cause it is end of the year soon.

Some facts behind the sohai project

1. According to wiki - List of human spaceflights, until 10 Oct 2007, there are total 260 manned spaceflights that reached 100 km or more in altitude, of which 252 reached orbit successfully (sorry for the failure 8).

2. The list of human spaceflights
3. According to wiki-Space tourism the cost to sent a human to space is around US$20M, but we spent RM95M (about US$26M) to sent a sohai to space.

The cost for space tourism now is US$30M and fully booked until 2009. I wonder how many rich man/women in this world. I wish I can visit to space some day.

4. According wiki-Angkasawan program, it is a project under the government-to-government offset agreement through the purchase of Sukhoi SU-30MKM fighter jets for the Royal Malaysian Air Force. Under this agreement the Russian Federation will bear the cost of training of two Malaysians and to send one to the International Space Station (ISS) in October 2007. Why we still pay so much???

5. According to The Age, Malaysia would basically be using foreign space programs as a "taxi service" to transport its angkasawan, gaining nothing of merit.

6. Quoted from The Age -
That's not Malaysia "boleh", that's Malaysia "bodoh" (stupid).

Angkasawan

Today we spent few million RM to bring a sohai to the space. I wish the money can be used for education or research instead of sending a sohai out of the Earth.

What a waste!

Puzzle solved

Now is 6AM in the morning, looking at the monitor, and finally, i'd solved one of the puzzle, the system is in auto mode, everything run according to my schedule. I hope the three juniors can buy me lunch today for making their live more easier. Now they can have more sleep :)

It's a satisfaction looking at my own system working as per my design, although it's never an 100% satisfaction for me. From project to project, I try to build a better system. I called the process as evolution. It's a painful process but that is the only entertainment I have to cheer up myself. At the end of the project, my company loose money (I hope it's not because of me), and my directors are so kind that they come out with their own pocket money and give me bonus. Thanks boss. I'm lucky that I have my working system to motivate me to do better. I hope all my colleague have other motivation to move forward.

My control subcontractor changing their engineer every 2-3 years. Most of their engineers are manager now. I wish I can work in their company. As usual, I repeat and repeat guiding these new faces to build up the system. Although, sometime I don't know how what is the logic behind these young engineers, but it's work at the end after so many stages of painful debugging process. I hope they can read more and play more puzzle games :)
(I miss Voon, he is a very good engineer, but now he is a manager, I hope he don't lost his skill after sitting comfortably in the air-cond room)

Proud to be an engineer

1st story:

Eleven people were dangling below a helicopter on a rope. There were ten HR people and one engineer.

Since the rope was not strong enough to hold all the eleven, they decided that one of them had to let go to save all the others.

They could not decide who should be the volunteer. Finally the engineer said he would let go of the rope since engineers are used to do everything for the company. They forsake their family, don’t claim all of their expenses and do a lot of overtime without getting anything in return.

When he finished his moving speech all the HR people began to clap…

Moral: Never underestimate the powers of the engineer.


2nd story:

A group of engineers and a group of HR people take a train to a conference.

Each HR person holds a ticket. But the entire group of engineers has bought only one ticket for a single passenger. The HR people are just shaking their heads and are secretly pleased that the arrogant engineers will finally get what they deserve.

Suddenly one of the engineers calls out: “The conductor is coming!”. At once, all the engineers jump up and squeeze into one of the toilets. The conductor checks the tickets of the HR people. When he notices that the toilet is occupied he knocks on the door and says: “Ticket, please!” One of the engineers slides the single ticket under the doors and the conductor continues merrily on his round.

For the return trip the HR people decide to use the same trick. They buy only one ticket for the entire group but they are baffled as they realize that the engineers didn’t buy any tickets at all. After a while one of the engineers announces again: “The conductor is coming!” Immediately all the HR people race to a toilet and lock themselves in.

All the engineers leisurely walk to the other toilet. Before the last engineer enters the toilet, he knocks on the toilet occupied by the HR people and says: “Ticket, please!”

And the moral of the story?
HR people like to use the methods of the engineers, but they don’t really understand
them.


3rd story:

Once upon a time three HR people were walking through the woods and suddenly they were standing in front of a huge, wild river. But they desperately had to get to the other side. But how, with such a raging torrent? The first HR guy knelt down and prayed to the Lord:
“Lord, please give me the strength to cross this river!"

*pppppfffffffuuuuffffffff*
The Lord gave him long arms and strong legs. Now he could swim across the river. It took him about two hours and he almost drowned several times.
BUT… he was successful!

The second HR guy, who observed this, prayed to the Lord and said: “Lord, please give me the strength AND the necessary tools to cross this river!”

*pppppfffffffuuuuffffffff*
The Lord gave him a tub and he managed to cross the river despite the fact that the tub almost capsized a couple of times.
BUT… he was successful!

The third HR man who observed all this kneeled down and prayed: “Lord, please give me the strength, the means and the intelligence to cross this river!”

*pppppfffffffuuuuffffffff*
The Lord converted the HR man into an engineer. He took a quick glance on the map, walked a few meters upstream and crossed the bridge.

Moral?
You have to be an engineer to think intelligent, Otherwise…
GOD HELP YOU !



Thanks to my girl send me these story when I almost give up being an engineer. And to all the engineers out there, hope these will cheer you all up.

Thought of day

My life become indirection nowadays. I don't know whether now I'm working for money or working for fun. Should I put more effort and initiative and creativity in my project or I just do what ever inside the book.

I never forget I'm electronics engineer and my dream is to create my own gadget. And I have to agreed with my girl that engineer are lazy, especially electronics engineer. They try to automate everything, including switching on the light. But we just want to cover the truth and said, we, the engineers, create a better life :)

Now the question come, do I still need to spent my time for the creativity in my job so that I can have fun meanwhile I don't have my personal time. Or I just go back at 6PM and do what ever described in the boring procedure.

If I put more effort in my job, will I be awarded or will I making myself look like a stupid idiot. What is the meaning of becoming an engineer if you only follow the stupid procedure.

What is the different between the engineer and technician? Sometime I hope I can be the technician because most of them are richer than engineer. And they can say "I don't know" and pass the ball back to the engineer.

Maybe I start feeling tire and I really need a good rest.

Maybe I should leave this job and start my own career.

I should built my better world for myself.

Another engineer vs manager joke

A team of young budding Managers were given an assignment to measure the height of a flagpole.

So the Managers discussed and put up a project plan with roles and responsibilities.
The Manager who was responsible for organizing the resources went out and got a ladder and a tape.

The tape measure was just the ordinary tape of 6 feet.

The lead manager assigned another manager to go on top of the pole and start the measure.

They were falling off the ladders, dropping the tape measures - the whole thing was just a mess.

An Engineer came along and saw what they' were trying to do.

He walked over pulled the flagpole out of the ground, laid it flat, measured it from end to end, gave the measurement to one of the managers and walked away.

After the Engineer went away, one manager turns head to another and laughs.
"Isn't that just like an engineer? We're looking for height and he gives the length"

Moral: No matter how good an engineer you are, Manager always finds fault in you.

Tension

I dont know how to tell you how much tension I have these days. The stupid project is going to end and as usual I will be damn busy. For all my previous projects, I always had some buffer, but not this stupid project. I'm totally ignored. People always think that control and instrument can finish on time with all mechanical works. But too bad to say that its need time. The moment the mechanical works is done, I only can start to install my instruments, wiring terminations, checking, programming, troubleshoot, tuning, ... Anyway, luckily I got help from my colleagues and sub-cond, finally I can relax a bit today.

The main reason of my tension is not from my works, it's my study. I'm going to have my master viva on next Tuesday and I'm not prepared |||^_^

It's had been four years I struggling to end my stupid study and I know I need to end it this time. I'm quite regret to take the course. Anyway, since it's started then I will end it.

Just wish me good luck.

A martial arts student went to his teacher and said earnestly, "I am devoted to studying your martial system. How long will it take me to master it." The teacher's reply was casual, "Ten years." Impatiently, the student answered, "But I want to master it faster than that. I will work very hard. I will practice everyday, ten or more hours a day if I have to. How long will it take then?" The teacher thought for a moment, "20 years."

When sick

Once a man went to a Veterinary Doctor in India and said:

Doctor I have come on vacation for a month so that I can get myself
treated fully within this period.

Doctor: I think you should go to the Doctor opposite to my clinic,
see that board.

Man: No, Doctor, I have come to you only

Doctor: But, gentleman I am a Veterinary Doctor. I am an animal
specialist. I do not treat human beings.

Man: I know, Doctor very well and that is why I have come to you only...

Doctor: I can not, because you speak like me, think like me, talk
like me which means you are a human being and not an animal.

Man: I know I am a human but listen to my complaints first:

Doctor: OK. Tell me.

Man:

I sleep vigilantly like a dog thinking about my work load whole night.

I get up in the morning like a horse

I go to work running like a deer

I work all the day like a donkey

I run around for 11 months like a bull without any holiday.

I wag my tail in front of all my bosses

I play with my children like a monkey if I get time.

I am like a rabbit before my wife

Doctor: are you an engineer?

Man: Yes

Doctor: Instead of telling this long history you should have told me
in the beginning itself that you are are an engineer.
Come on man, no one
can treat you better than me..........


This is good XD

Monkeys

A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there,another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll have a C monkey please." The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey. He fitted a collar and leash,handed to the customer,saying, "That'll be $5,000."

The customer paid and walked out with his monkey. Startled,the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said,"That was a very expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred pounds. Why did it cost so much? "The shopkeeper answered, "Ah,that monkey can program in C - very fast,tight code,no bugs,well worth the money."

The tourist looked at a monkey in another cage. "Hey,that one's even more expensive! $10,000! What does it do?"

"Oh,that one's a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming,Visual C++, even some Java All the really useful stuff," said the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read $50,000.The tourist gasped to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What on earth does it do?"

The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything, but it says it's a project manager".

For all working people

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again. So, he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note in its mouth. He takes the note and it reads, "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please". The dog has money in its mouth, as well.

The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a ten-dollar note there. So he takes the money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog's mouth. The butcher is so impressed, and since it's about closing time, he decides to shut the shop and follow the dog. So off he goes.

The dog is walking down the street, when it comes to a level crossing; the dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button. Then it waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to turn. They do, and it walks across the road, with the butcher following him all the way. The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg up and gets in it.

The butcher follows the dog into the bus. The dog then shows a ticket, which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor. The butcher is nearly fainting at this sight, so are the other passengers in the bus. The dog then sits near the driver's seat looking outside waiting for the bus stop to come. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the conductor. Then, without waiting for the bus to stop completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a house very close to the stop.

It opens the big iron gate and rushes inside towards the door. As it approaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and beats its head against it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door. The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing at him.

The butcher surprised with this, runs up, and stops the guy. "What in heaven's name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on TV, for the life of me!" to which the guy responds: "You call this clever? This is the second time this week that this stupid dog's forgotten his key.


Haha, I like this joke, make me want to cry after reading it.

Time management

Try this simple puzzle, see how good is your time management.


|[A 2 minute] |
|[B 4 minute] |
|[C 8 minute] |
|[D 16 minute] |

There are four boats on the left bank of a river. To cross the river to the right bank, Boat A takes 2 minutes; Boat B takes 4 minutes; Boat C takes 8 minutes and Boat D takes 16 minutes.

All boats need to go to the right bank but there are only one boatman. One boat can pull another boat but it will take the same amount of time as the slower of the two boats to cross the river.

If the boatman uses one boat to pull another boat to the right bank and returns to the left bank in one boat, how many minutes will it take for him to move all the boats to the right bank?


Try this puzzle and find out how good is your IQ and also maybe your time management.

Most of the time we are rushing for the deadline. If you manage to plan your schedule we can somehow shortcut lots of unnecessary wastage. Everyone can reach to the destination at same time and we can cheer for all the handwork that we had contributed to the project.

A project without coordination is a war field, everyone is your enemy. You need to act fast or else you will lose your territory and by then you are dead meat.

So you can choose either to work together or play the war game in your project. Good luck.

My SEG T_T

Today went to Time Square planning to watch the Transformer. I don't know why everyone are going for that movie and no more ticket until 9.30PM. Shit, I hope this movie is lousy :)

So I went back to have lunch with my family. And at the stupid jam road near the Jalan Pekeliling, a stupid Wira suddenly stop in front of me and as usual my SEG can handle this small method. But when I look at the back mirror, a lorry is driving like want to going to hell fly toward me. Shit, I know it going to hit me. And bang! This is what happen to the best car ever make :(




Luckily no one hurt, and I'm still in one piece with the handsome face XD.

No car use for a week, have to borrow car from my lovely girl friend.

Hope to see my SEG next week with perfect look.

How to success in working

Basically I'm a failure in my career :(

But what reason that allow me to write this blog? And what make you read a loser writing how to success? I myself also can't explain it. You may stop here if you think I'm wasting your time, but if you like to know some nerve inside a loser, you are welcome.

In every project or working environment, there are drivers and passengers. The driver can be defined as a worker/executor that pushing the project/task to move to it destination. Driver can be a leader, an engineer or event a general worker. On the other hand, a passenger is someone that sitting in a mobile, fetch by the driver to the destination. They can be analogy as parasite. In the mind of passenger, there are no teamwork needed, what they are looking for is victim, a stupid victim.

The mind of a driver is simple, what they try to do is try as hard as they can to move the task/project forward, fighting in the front line with no fear. But most of the time, the simple mind of these idiots forgot about the parasite at the back may overtake the credit when they are tired.

Therefore to success in your working environment, you must train yourself as a good passenger. What you must do is, sit relaxing in the car and let the driver fetch you to the destination and overtake the control at the correct timing and earn the credit.
Somehow, there are some rules that applied here. First, you must not try on a too high target, most of the time, you will fail. Second, remember, no friend in this world except enemy and victim.

Email is the most powerful tool invented by a stupid driver and abused by passenger. What make email so advantage over classical mail, memo, notice or fax? First it is black and white, that mean the evident is solid. Second, the speed of delivery is at the speed of light to everyone. And third, it let you choose who need to be attention and whom no.

When you are at trouble, find a weakest victim and put his/her name on the email and sent to everyone, CC to the management and you have successfully kill a victim.

When there is some credit to earn, you must fast enough sent an email to everyone and CC to the management about your 'great' contribution that make the task/project complete successfully. You are now earn all the credit and let all the stupid drivers eat shit.

In order to write a good email, you must learn how to use some stupid English terms like flying colour, momentum, teamwork, ladder, escalator (sorry to say that I neither know what these words mean and nor why there are here), etc. These terms give your email a management look. Management like these English term that make them feel more high class.

The second skill that you must employ is talk. You must learn to use correct term at correct location and time. For example, the management want you to come out a proposal, you may say, "I will try my best to come out the proposal, although I have two others document that urgently needed. I will try to ask Dinstein to help me on this." First, never say NO to the management. Second, must let the management know you are BUSY. The term 'try my best' mean you may get the result or you may no, if you get it is because of me; if you don't get because someone else cause me can't deliver it to you and you can't blame me, but somehow you can blame someone, in this case Dinstein. Third, always prepare a victim in the task so you can push your shit to him/she.

Ok, I hope these lesson can give you some hints or guidance to success in your working environment. And for all the driver, thank you for your hard work; for all the passenger, be careful you may be my next victim, wha hahahaha...........

Superman returns!


Almost 1/2 year I'm being chain by the Kryptonite chain to sit in the office to write story book, and finally I can put on my red underwear and fly.

Wah ha ha ha ha.............. I'm unstoppable!

Happy hour

For each of my project, a cup of beer with my sub-cond after the FAT is a must. It's indicate a mile stone of the project and it also mean a 100% done on the engineering, although it's not the case for most of the projects.

I don't really enjoy drinking beer, a cup is just good enough for me. However, my sub-cond will give me a bottomless, I think I must be torture him too much XD

It's enjoy listen to the music and singing while having a drink. The most enjoyable part is to talk about the stupid company, peoples and laugh at our stupidity.

I'm not sure about others, but working at site is enjoyable. Most of the time, people will forget about control system, therefore most of the time we are suffering from last minute notice and we did lot of stupid thing at site. That why we talk and curse those stupid peoples that make us do stupid thing.

All suffer that we faced will be forgotten when we celebrate the victory, cheer!

Old friend

Yesterday, I found two of my primary school friend from friendster. Feel so excited because I had lost all my contact with my primary school friends.

I had been moved to Johor from Perak when I was 15 and moved to KL when 18. So I study 3 different secondary schools. I still have contact with my Johor's friends, but for my home town's friends, I almost lost all.

I wish to found some of my best friends and talk to them about myself and listen to them about their life. And also tell my dream girl that I was fall in love with her last time :p

I hope to get back the contact as many as I can.

Friendship forever.

Singapore, here I come..

It's almost 9 years I never go to Singapore. The last time I went to Singapore is to work at Hitachi factory when waiting for STPM result. I swear to myself that I will never ever work at factory again. You have to train yourself to become a robot if you work in factory. It's suck. Until today I still can remember the smell of the clean room.

Basically I only like the evening of Singapore, it's make me feel peaceful. I hope I can still have this feeling for this visit.

Lot of my friend working in Singapore. Some because stay at Johor, so they prefer to cross the river to look for more gold. Some are from Perak, where no much of work and good paid can be offered there. Some are study there and never want to come back to Bolehland again. I hope I can spend sometime with them this time, but time is just too short.

Ok, as usual, try to capture some nice photos for you all this time :)

Genius – part 2

I have been work as an engineer for 6 years since my graduation. I use my knowledge (just to emphasis here, is knowledge not experience) in solving my dairy engineering tasks.

Most of the tasks, e.g. inverter configuration, flow meter setting, SCADA programming, etc, can be accomplished by reading the manual, that why Dilbert said only engineer read manual. Others tasks, e.g. motorized valve troubleshooting, install/dismantling instruments, etc, are just simple engineering daily tasks.

To some body else, it seem like a miracle or magic (black magic) “How he do that?”.

One day, I had been asked to write down everything and every step I need to do for the project, and suddenly I don’t even know how to use a test pen XD

Paper work is important, I never omit that. But over paper works will only become a burden to everyone and prevent the creativity in the engineering design. Yes, engineering is a mixture of art and science. I wonder how an artist creates their art works. Is there any method statement involve?

Not all engineers can write / explain the procedure, if an engineer can write he/she must be a technical writer not a project/design engineer. Engineer whose can write will not know how to do it; same for engineer whose know how to do it will not know how to write it.

Anyway, currently I start to think what angle I should use to unscrew a nut. Pity me :(

Genius



I watch this movie on the flight to Melbourne. Very interesting movie. It's about a 13 years old genius pianist that hate to play piano because of pressure from everyone.

There is a scene that I like it most, when the girl ask her father's friend about her talent in playing piano, and he told her a story about centipede.

One day, an ant saw a centipede walking, he is surprise and ask the centipede, "How you do that, you got so many legs but they are all synchronized when you walk". The centipede start to think how he can do that, suddenly, he can't walk anymore.


If you are not born with talent, then you need to work hard to get it. But if you are genius, you better use it. Somehow, genius is lonely, no one know how he/she do it but it just can be done so easily.

I'm lonely :p

I'm back from Melbourne

Finally, I'm Back to my sweet home. After 8 hours of midnight flight, finally the plane landed safely at Bolehland.

It's cool at Melbourne, I need to wear my jacket everywhere.

Everything here is expensive, I need to pay AU$2.70 for a 1.5l mineral water, almost cost me RM7.70 for a unbranded mineral water. Make me unbalance after drink the water.

What can I say about Melbourne is that it's BORING. The city is so small that I already round the city for almost 3 times in 4 days. Most of the shop close at 4.00PM. Shit, in Bolehland, we close at 4.00AM. Because it's so boring, I'd spent most of the night time at Casino. Playing slot every night and luckily win few AU$ for me to buy mineral water and have some free Coke in the casino. I wounder will I be ban to get into the casino next time XD, sit in front of the slot machine for few hours and only playing 2 cents per game. Can't even earn my money to pay the electricity and some more have to give me free drink. Shit, I think I'll be block next time.

The night view at Melbourne is nice, especially near the Yarra river. I saw every one is pointing their camera towards the river. I think that is the only attractive night activity at Melbourne city.

The only reason that can let me to stay at Melbourne is that there are lot of pretty girls on the street :p. I told myself, I better go back to Bolehland or else I will not want to marry anymore. Hey, don't try to ask me to give away the garden for a flower since I can stay in the garden :p (I hope my girl didn't read my blog).

Not to forget, thanks to Jamie for this trip. Without him Melbourne will be a dead city for me.

OK, have to sleep now. My brain had stop working.

1 year gone

I just notice that I started to blog on last year 25th May. 1 year gone, nothing have changed for me, still single, still stupid, still so genius, still busy,...

The only thing change is I'm 1 year older then last year T_T

I'm not sure when I going to stop telling you all those stupid stories that I have. Well don't worry, I will torture you all for another year to read on my broken English blog, hahaha, I think I'm the first one who use broken English to torture people. That why I call myself genius orz, hahahah........

Time management

Yesterday I plan my schedule like this:

09.00AM Go electrical sub-cond factory for FAT (I think I should call it checking, see my sub-cond do what I told or not, and also check whether they cut cost on my project or not.

10.00AM Go BES to "show face" (This is one of the stupid project, the operator don't know what they are doing, they don't communicate to each other and come to me all source of stupid complain, idiot!). Then backup a copy of SCADA and give to my control sub-cond for reference. Then walk through the P1 SCADA with control peoples.

12:00PM Go to P1, help the pretty lady engineer on her fire fighting project. Then discuss P1 project with my control sub-cond. Force him to buy me lunch XD

02:00PM Go to KLIA, configure the VFDs to do PID tunning. Then commission the on/off valves, testing interlocking, fix the temperature controller, run the system in Auto mode.

09:00PM Go home sleep.

This is what happen yesterday.

09:30AM Reach electrical sub-contractor factory.

11:00AM Finish checking, go back to office to pick up instrument.

11:30AM Drive towards to BES.

12:00PM Arrive to BES, waiting for control peoples.

01:00PM Backup SCADA and go for lunch.

01:30PM Discuss P1 SCADA at coffee shop.

02:30PM Finish discussion, drive towards to P1. KLIA project manager called, not able to enter plant due to no chargeman.

03:30PM Attend meeting.

04:30PM Discuss fire fighting with safety and the pretty lady engineer.

05:30PM Go back to P1 to prepare notes for sub-cond and supplier, discussion with colleagues on the stupid fire fighting (Nothing need to be done, but yet we need to submit tonne of stupid paper works to told them nothing need to be done).

09:00PM Go home.

The only successful schedule that I met is go home time.

I WANT TO QUIT!!!

Tomorrow I go Melbourne, hahaha no one can ask me to do stupid job anymore in these few days.

Thursday, May 31, 2007

Finally...

After working for 6 years, finally I can got for FAT, T_T think of it I also want to cry.



I will be here next week XD. First of all, I would like to thank to lousy Contrec engineers who design the stupid energy meter. Because of the manufacture defect, I would able to go there to do some stupid testing.

Search from Google, CBD and Yarra river have very nice view. It's 1.5km from hotel. Have to train my legs now. Will try to take some nice photos.


Melbourne CBD

Yarra river

Melbourne, here I come XD

Engineer's dilema

When I was at school day, I dream to become an engineer because my teachers told me that engineer is a very nice job and have wide future. They also told me that engineer can earn lot of money and can get very high post when you are professional engineer.

So I study engineering and when I come out work as an engineer, I realize my teachers didn't told me the whole story. They only conclude the facts by adopting few rarely successful story of some engineers. So I had been cheated and my sweet dream become nightmare T_T

I work almost 24x7 a week, I can't off my handphone, I work in hot and humid environment, I work alone, I work overnight, ... (I got tear in my eye T_T)

The most important part is that, if you don't get your partner at school/university days, you are doomed. Most of the engineers are male, if got female engineer, she is either being booked or you wouldn't have interest on her XD. So, if you are engineer and you are still alone, please pray hard so that you can be awarded with a nice and pretty girl friend (It's like buying a Big Sweep ticket, you got chances to win, but the chances is nearly zero. But somehow, you got hope, a desperate hope).

For me, because I'm a good man and also best engineer in town, that why I have been awarded with a pretty girl friend XD. You can admire me but please don't jealous, hahaha...

Engineers, enjoy your day and remember pray hard.

Why we use CC and BCC: explained!

Just watched the movie "Just Follow Law", very funny movie.

Jack Neo's is very good in teasing the government, he know the most itchy part and let you laugh until cry. But most of his movies are not like other stupid idiot movie, he always put the touching part on the second half of the movie.

If you haven't watch the movie, go and watch it, or buy the original DVD when available. It's worth to spend 2 hours for this movie.

Why am I still at office?

Today went to KLIA plant on afternoon to check on the electrical and control system. The system still not yet 100% ready, so after checking and discuss with sub-cond, it's 5.30PM.

So I can choose go home have a nice dinner or go back to P1 to continue my write up.

At the end, I go back to P1 to continue my stupid write up.

Maybe you will ask, why don't I go back home and do it at home? OT?

Yes, I can do it at home and I don't bother much on the OT also. But I still choose to do it at office.

I don't bring my job back to home since the first day I work. It's principle and also habit. I watch lot of movies, read lot of story and what I understand is that most of the family problems actually started from work.

Sometime, some work is not fun at all, it's boring and make your day down. Most of the time we are very kind to our friend but we are mean to our family. If you notice, sometime, same words from family member will make us angry but not if it is from our friend's mouth. Therefore, it will be family disaster if you are not able to control your temper while you work at home.

But I'm staying alone?

Yes, I'm staying alone in a big house XD. But it should not be an excuse to bring your work home, because sooner or later you will used to it, and it will become a habit even after you are married.

So, please remember finish your work at office, because that what an office is meant for. Enjoy you day with your family at home.

Home sweet home :)

An ISO 9001 Pencil

This is good XD

In an effort to get registered, an organization had written, rewritten and written again many of it's manuals, procedures, process descriptions and control documentation causing one of the staff to ask "what's the difference between a regular pencil and an ISO 9001 certified pencil? "

Answer: The ISO 9001 pencil has an eraser on both ends.

Summer talk

I found out that since last week, I got no "mood" to work. At first I thought it's personal problem, but lately I found that most of the engineering team members are having same problem. Summer is here.

Most of the member in engineering house was sick these few week. And once after recovered from sick, the "no working mood" virus is attacking. Everyone is hoping for a holiday and rest.

I don't know about others, but for me this is symptom of overloaded. It's like Microsoft Windows. Once the OS is overloaded, it become hang and need to be reset. Once it's restarted, it will become hang again if you try to run heavy program. What it actually needs is cooling, a shut down for few hour will actually solve the "hanging" problem.

If you are overload, don't force yourself to work, it will just make the situation worse. Stop and rest, cool down your mind and start back again once you are ready.

Good luck engineers, the war is just begin, it is still long way to go. Victory will with us but we need to keep ourself strong to hold until the end.

Hypothesis

1st hypothesis: If you work too hard, your girl will leave you.
2nd hypothesis: If you are poor, your girl will leave you.

We all know money is alway not enough. Therefore you are poor, you girl will leave you. So, you start to work very hard to earn more money to become a rich man. But your girl will leave because you work too hard.

It's a bad chain reaction. Bad infinite loop. Black hole.

But believe me, you better work hard, so once your girl is leaving you, you can use the money to get another one. If you poor and your girl leaved you, you are dead meat. You got nothing, no girl no money.

The conclusion, work hard and earn more money, like it or not, your girl will leave you. So better keep more money to get a wife from Thailand / Vietnam :)

Voucher

Last week, when I was queuing up at the cashier counter to pay my goods, I saw a lady was paying her goods using two pieces of RM50 shopping voucher, but the amount of her purchase is only RM70++. What she do is, she ask her husband to get something to make it over RM100. So everyone is waiting for this lady to finish her shopping.

I personally don't like the idea of voucher, it's like forcing someone to give you money due to some reason. But the party is so stingy and they force you to use the "money" with lot of conditions and within limited time. And we are also so stingy that we try to fully use the "money" even though we don't know what to buy. For me it's a torturing process.

Voucher should be a award, not burden. So, the first thing to remember is only ask for the voucher if you think you will use it in near future. Second, understand the stupid condition, sometime these people just give you some very stupid condition to use it. Third, never use it on last day.

Hope you enjoy your voucher.

Summer is coming, I'm sick

Summer is coming, it's hot and humid, it's virus and bacterial best growing temperature and RH. That why, I'm sick.

Not able to sleep yesterday night, due to non-stop fewer. This morning have to sick in the meeting room talk about the stupid control sequences. Then go back to stupid site and can't do anything. My production is near zero today :(

Then go see doctor, and I tell doctor what medicine I need and ask him to write a MC for tomorrow just in case the medicine that I request not able to cure my sickness.



It's my dinner, bread with tuna, Milo with oat, and my favorite 1/2 boiled eggs. Here is a tip how to make professional look of 1/2 boiled eggs.

1. Put 2 eggs into a cup.
2. Pour a boiled water into it.
3. Wait for 10 minute before serve.

Then take stupid medicine.

Due to too lonely, SK start to talk to himself

Dinstein: Kesian, you are sick.
SK: Yes :(
Dinstein: Where is your girl friend?
SK: >|
Dinstein: Oh, I think I said something wrong, so she not coming?
SK: :_(
Dinstein: So, I'm right, she is not coming
SK: T_T

I promise myself, if she come and make me a dinner, I will give her my everything including my body XD

It's 2.30AM



Guess how many people are still working in this house?

The answer: 7 engineers!

Maybe Dilbert can explain that :)



Tomorrow I want to eat "bak kut teh", no more curry chicken rice and roti naan!

Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru







I love this movie, Aoi Miyazaki, she just so cute.

The movie is from Ichikawa Takuji's novel, Renai Shashin: Mou Hitotsu no Monogatari, lovely and touching love story. My nose gets sour after watching the movie. I don’t know whether I love the ending or not, but for sure the sad ending make me feel so touching.

This product SUCK!


What wrong with this product?

1. The energy and cumulative energy reading reset randomly, maybe few times a day, maybe once a few months.
2. The meter stalled after running for sometime.
3. The RTD input is too sensitive, spoil without any symptom.
4. The pulse output stalled after running for sometime.

If you are the engineer who design this meter, you are SUCK!
If you know the engineer who design this meter, pass my message to him, "FUCK YOU!".

1 litre of tear


I watched this movie last Saturday and my breath nearly stop when I saw the author writing her diary when she nearly can't control the pen. I wonder how many people can be as strong as her.

Suddenly, I thanks God cause I'm still able to climb up and down at site, make my hand dirty, solving puzzles, ... Thanks to those people laughing at my stupidity, guess what you can continue doing that cause I will continue be stupid.

For all engineers, technicians, clerks, managers or directors, please don't push your responsibility to others. Take back your responsibility and put it on your own shoulder, start to make decision, be a real man. Please ask God to take back His gift to you if you want to be deadwood.

New way to testing and commissioning

Today I'd learned a new way to do T&C. Sit at the chair and look into the monitor for 8 hours and the T&C is completed.

Nice article from Haruki Murakami - If I love you

如果我爱你, 而你正巧的也爱我.....

那你生病的时候, 我会去照顾你, 陪你到好.

你骑车的时候, 我会要你小心点, 还要你到的时候打电话跟我说.

你忘了吃晚餐时, 我会装做很生气, 然后说: 你这样会让我很担心耶!

你头发乱的时候, 我会笑笑的替你拨一拨, 然后手还留恋的在你发上多待几秒...

你想哭, 我会陪你掉泪, 尽管前一刻我的心情是多雀跃 ~

你要笑, 我会陪你笑出声, 不管我上一秒是多么的沮丧...

我在空闲的时候, 会念念你的名字, 想想你的声音.

我在逛街的时候, 会想到 "啊! 你正好也缺了这个.."

我在发现了好东西的时候, 一定马上想到 "一定要你来看看!"

我失眠了之后, 听到你也失了眠, 会在心理偷笑.

我在熬夜时, 接到你只为了说声 : "不要太累! 要早点睡了.... " 的电话, 会甜甜的笑着而乖乖的去睡......

我在想你的时候, 会知道你也在想我.




但是如果我爱你, 而你不巧的不爱我.....

那你生病的时候, 我只会打通电话慰问你, 不敢奢求待在你身边.

你骑车的时候, 我只会暗暗在心中希望你安全.

你忘了吃晚餐, 我也只会笑笑的问: 为什么不吃呢?

你头发乱了, 我只能轻轻告诉你: 头发乱了喔~~

你想哭, 我只能在旁边无奈的轻轻叹气着.

你想笑, 我只能微微地对你笑着...

我在空闲的时候, 还是会念念你的名字, 想想你的声音.

在逛街的时候, 会想到 "是谁帮你买了这个呢? "

我发现好东西的时候, 会无奈的想着会是谁告诉你这个好消息呢?

我失眠之后, 会躲着不让你看见我的黑眼圈.

我在熬夜时, 不敢期待会有电话声响起来.....

我在想你的时候, 会想到这时的你是在想着谁?


如果我不再爱你了.... 那么我一定就不爱你了, 我会去爱上别人....


世上有什么不会失去的东西吗? 我相信有, 你最好也相信!


村上春树 :
鱼说 : 你看不见我眼中的泪,因为我在水中....
水说 : 我能感觉你的泪,因为你在我的心里....


The fish said "You cannot see the tear in my eyes, because I in water..."
The water said "I can feel your tear, because you in my heart...."

Does Management really know their Staffs?

On walking into the factory, the MD noticed a young boy leaning against the wall, doing nothing.

He approached the young man and calmly said to him, "How much do you earn?"

The young man was quite amazed that he was asked such a personal question, he replied, none the less, "I earn $ 2 000.00 a month, Sir. Why?"

Without answering, the MD took out his wallet and removed $ 6000.00 cash then gave it to the young man and said: "Around here I pay people for working, not for standing around looking pretty! Here is 3 months 'salary', now GET OUT and don't come back".

The young man turned around and was quickly out of sight. Noticing a few onlookers, the MD said in a very upset manner: "And that applies for everybody in this company".

He approached one of the onlookers and asked him, "Who's the young man that I just fired?"

To which an amazing reply came of, "He was the pizza delivery man, Sir...!!!"

Toyota Vios



I promise myself to get one. But before that, I need to end my stupidity.

Motorola phone charging problem. SOLVED!

We all know that Motorola phone always have charging problem after sometime. What actually happen? What went wrong?

My girlfriend family got a Motorola phone, and as usual it stop charging after 1-2 years. So once again as an electronic engineer, I'm going to repair it.

After open the cover, I checked the continuity. Look OK. Then I try to shake the connector. Surprise, the legs are moving.





It's soldering problem! The solder is not secure enough. Therefore after plug and unplug the connection for sometime, the solder will crack and the phone will have charging problem by then.

It's spend me 1/2 hour just to solder these pins. I think I need to get myself a surface mount soldering kit. The phone now back to normal charging function.



I'm not sure about the new Motorola phone, but old model which have this kind of connection will have this design defect. So if your Motorola phone stop charging, you should know what went wrong.

Maxis broadband

If you pissed off with Streamyx, and your are within 3G area, maybe you can try Maxis wireless broadband build on 3.5G HSDPA.

How fast can it go?

Here is the testing done in Subang Jaya. Thank to Jamie lend me the modem for testing.





How much its cost?

Well, basically cheaper than Streamyx if you are not "download monster". A basic 384kbps package is RM50 per month and the modem rental is RM18 or you can buy it with RM299.

By the way, Maxis doesn't give me any commission for advertising its product, I just share an option with you. I think that what blog is meant for.

How much is 100 million?

Previously, I was wonder how much actually 1 million is. How to describe it. But today I start to thinking how much actually is 100 million.

  1. Basic description.

    • I like eat chicken rice, so how many dishes of chicken rice that need to be sold so that total sales is 100 million. If a chicken rice is $3.50 per dish, then 28,571,428 dishes need to be sold. All Malaysian need to eat at least a dish of the chicken rice to make up to this number.

  2. Expensive description

    • The gold price per gram is around $73.50. Therefore, 100 million can buy 1,360,544 gram of gold or in other word, 1.36 tonnes of gold. Almost a weight of a Camry.

  3. Luxury description

    • The size of $100 is 150mm x 69mm, a 100 million can make up to 1,035,000 m2, which is the area of 75.5 football fields.

I wonder how much of heat that can be produced by a 100 million of $1 notes. Can use to heat up water for my shower ah?

My organizer

Lot of people nowadays bringing lot of gadgets, phone, PDA, PALM, notebook, MP3, etc. Most of them are happy with the product basic functions.

I have a Sony Ericsson K610 and a ASUS W3A notebook. Since I'm electronic engineer and majoring in communication, I would like to see them talking to each other. How?

I like Sony Ericsson because they are release all their phone information for other to develop application for their phone. You can go here to check on your S.E. phone (that why S.E. phone is for engineer). Personally I don't use software from S.E., it just too huge to install it and delay my notebook startup. So I use MyPhoneExplorer by F.J., very small and free application but it has everything you need.

On the notebook, I installed a organiser called Rainlendar by Rainy. Another small freeware but powerful enough for personal used.

Once you installed both, just select enable the synchronization function in MyPhoneExplorer and you are ready to have same database on PC and your phone.

Is 15th!

Today is 15th of the lunar calender, and it is Chap Goh Meh (actually this phase is come from Hokkien, it mean end of fifteen; Chap Goh is fifteen and Meh is end or tail) or in Chinese it's called Yuan Xiao "元宵". It's also a Chinese Valentine. Today girl will throw orange into the river to wish for a good lover and the man will pick up the orange and become the lover :)

Yesterday, as "usual" I work until today morning, thanks to Nick for helping me this time (he had off his hand phone again to prevent me to call him XD). Anyone watch the lunar eclipse today at 4AM? I slept at 3AM, so don't expect me to wake up at 4AM.


Share with us if you captured any photo.

So today, the Chinese New Year ended :(

...

WAIT!

The new year is just begin, only the festival is ended. So keep all the holiday mood and begin another hardworking year. Who know, maybe next year you can became your own boss.

Teamwork

According to oxford, teamwork mean the combined effective action of a group.

Wikipedia defined it more clearly as a concept of people working together cooperatively, as in a sports team.

As for me, I defined it as a group of people that have same hobby and dream moving towards a same direction.

Case 1:
The company said "Let us fight for a 100 million sales this year, by our teamwork we can do it". The director looking at the 100 million money, but the worker looking at 100 million job. So it will fail and not to mansion about teamwork.

Case 2:
The company said "Let us fight for a 100 million sales this year, by our teamwork we can do it and if we achieve it, I will share 1% of the profit". This time the director looking at the 100 million money, and some worker looking at 1% profit but some still cleaver enough looking at the 100 million job. So it have some changes to success. From here we can see the effect of teamwork.

Case 3:
The company said "Let me be your partner and we fight for a 100 million sales this year, by our teamwork we can do it. We share whatever profit that we make this year". This time, the director and the worker are looking at the 100 million money. So it mostly will success.

Same dream, same direction, that what I call teamwork.

A joke from internet
There were four people named
Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and
Everybody was asked to do it.

Everybody was sure Somebody would do it,
Anybody could have done it but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that, because it was
Everybody's job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it but
Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody

Angpao

Every year, when Chinese New Year came, we will get angpao from parent, relatives and also elders. Every year, I will keep the angpao until after the end of Chinese New Year then I will open it and keep those money in the bank. Year by year, and I have been doing it for 29 years. It's happy when receiving angpao, it's not about money but it's a festival feeling actually.

As usual, this year I "ask" angpao from my colleagues :p (too bad they have to give me cause I'm still single). It maybe my last year to ask for angpao, next year I promise them I will give angpao to their children. Hopefully.

Anyway, I hope my girl friend will agree with me.

Girl, I'm getting embarrass to ask for angpao already, can we give angpao next year?

Stock Market

It's 1278! Finally, after 13 years, we are at high point. Too bad, I don't involve in any stock market games :(

It's a good news?

I start to worry. It's another 10 years from our last economy crisis. From past experience, we all know, the economy crisis repeat every 10 years. Will it be happen this year? When?

I'm not economist but everyone should know I'm Conan's fan, therefore the prediction that I make is just a collection of past evidents and I hope it will be useful to you.

In 27 Oct. 1997, we had a global stock market crash after the economic crisis. It's Monday.

In 19 Oct. 1987, we had the Black Monday where the most famous stock market crash in the history.

In 13 Oct. 1989, we had the Friday the 13th, a mini crash due to fail of Leveraged buyout deal of United Airlines.

And back to 24, 28-29 Oct. 1929, we had the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

So, will we facing another stock market crash on October this year? Only time will tell.

Dinstein Astrology Class



The showed picture is called Spring Cow Chart <春牛图> (ha ha, not sure can translate like this or not :). It's used to describe or predict the weather of the year. Mainly used by farmer due to most of them are illiteracy.

How to read this chart? There is a poem showed at the below of the chart.

春牛身高四尺,身長八尺,尾長一尺二寸,牛頭紅色,牛身黑色,牛腰黑色,牛角耳尾黃色,牛膝脛黃色,牛蹄青色,牛尾右繳,牛口合,牛籠頭构子用桑柘木麻繩結青色,牛踏板懸門右肩。

芒神身高三尺六寸五分,面如老人像,黑衣黃腰帶,平梳兩髻在耳後,露耳,綁腿、鞋子、褲子俱全,鞭仗用柳枝,長二尺四寸,五色醮染,用麻結,芒神站在春牛右前方。

There are lot of informations embedded in the poem (please don't ask me to translate, I'm not a Fung Shui master), mainly are on season informations.

Here I show you how to read the chart. But before that, the man is call Mang God <芒神> and the cow is Spring Cow <春牛>.


  1. The Mang God is standing at the right of the spring Cow.

    • It's mean the beginning of spring is earlier than the new year.


  2. The Mang God is wearing slipper.

    • It's mean this year will be a less raining year.


  3. The poem on the top right - [三冬雨水多,九夏禾無蹤]

    • It's mean quantity of rain will be more on winter (month 3rd) and less on summer (month 9th), it is adnormal.


  4. The poem on the top left - [人民多瘧瘴,六畜盡遭迍]

    • It's mean there will be epidemic happen on humans and animals.


According to NASA, there will be El Nino effect for the year 2007. So whether this year is a summer year or a raining year, only time will tell. I will let you know by next year.

Some how, both also predict a serious pandemic this year, I really hope they all wrongly predict it.

Once again happy Chinese New Year to all.

It's Chinese New Year Eve's Eve!

It's going to be a long holiday (hopefully). Unfortunately, today the bosses is going to have a meeting regarding a new project with client, hence there is no early dismiss like last few year :(

And I still having lot of document have to be done. It's a busy year.

Sometime, we wish the company can doing well, get lot of project then at the end of the year, everyone will reward with the efforts and hard works that we dump into the company. But some how sometime the input is not equal to the output.

You may ask yourself, do I need to be so hardworking? Why I'm still doing it? Hobby?

From all my previous bogs, the engineer that I described is

1. Hard working
2. A genius
3. Stupid guy
4. Hands on person
5. Very poor in presentation
6. Poor in English/language
7. Do thing quietly

If you having the above "symptoms" then well come to engineering world, else congratulation, you are qualified to promote to manager level.

Back to today topic, as usual I'm not lucky enough in lucky draw.



Ok, everyone, Happy Chinese New Year and Go Xi Fa Cai.
