Dinstein teach Chinese

Morning everyone, today I want to teach you a Chinese word.


OK, everyone please pronounce with me 仙(xian) 家(jia). And in Cantonese we pronounce as "xing ka", and in Dinglish, we pronounce as "xinger"

Now I explain what is the meaning of these words.

仙 mean a legendary celestial beings that have special magic or power and can live eternally, when we put the word 家 at the back of a word, it become a noun. For example, 政治 mean politic, and 政治家 mean politician.

Originally, we use this word on some human beings that have extraordinary knowledge or extraordinary power and most of them are extraordinary long life.

Now we use this word on some so called specialists because they are so legendary that all you know about that person is through some fantastic "successful" story.

Here are some examples from my daily life.

There was a project that build a steel tank inside a concrete tank. Somehow the steel tank is leaking which is a bad news for the builder. Fortunately, there is a specialist in tank leaking detection come to the save the day. The specialist start to present their "successful" stories and the magical way they solve the problem. As usual the builder's bosses are so impressed with the specialist. Therefore, the bosses employ the specialist with some huge amount of fees.

The first time, the specialist came to site and install some instruments, which is look like a mike or sound receiver on the external of the tank and hook up to their old PC (legendary Pentium 1 133MHz), and they start the legendary program which is run on DOS. All the builder's engineers are expecting something like a 3D rendering of a wall that indicate the leaking holes. But somehow the specialist give the engineers some numbers. And as usual, these numbers are just a number, meaningless number. After the unsuccessful try, the specialist give some "reasons" on the failure of their technique and they proposed another method which is similar but this time they have to do it inside the tank. After draining the water and some preparation works, the specialist come to site with their legendary equipment, which is look like a mike or sound receiver that will detect the leaking compressed air sound. And the result, well, I don't want to mention much here. The most funniest story is that all the builder's sohai engineers went into the tank and use soap to detect the leaking air.

The second story is about a project which need to lift a big chiller to the mid floor of a 50++ stories building. As usual the specialist is approach to the bosses on their fantastic stories. As usual the bosses is impressed with their good presentation skill and the specialist come out with a solution that to use a huge crane, about 500 tons, which is few hundred time larger than a chiller, and lift the chiller into the building through the gap of the windows, which a blind also can tell you it is too small. Let see how is the result in the near future.

I was once saw a control specialist that build 2 pages only SCADA, a electrical specialist that replace a fuse with wire, a heater specialist that supply a oversize heater that melt the motor insulation, a pump specialist that supply a wrong size pump impeller, etc.

There are lot of specialists in this world. Some are really an expert, but most are so called a specialist, you can call them a conman but I personally like to call them as xinger. Anyway, they live longer than you think and richer than anyone of us.

I'm extremely a sohai

Just went to the factory training yesterday, so I have completed 1/3 way to Sudan. The next thing to do is go for immunization. I hope I wouldn't cry of those needles TT. I also not sure the company will say "This is your personal thing, company already included in your allowance, and you need to pay for that!". Ya, who know what the management will do to "save" the company from losing money again.

Talking about Sudan, previously the supplier agreed to sent a man go there to troubleshoot their equipment, but after the war news and the crashed flight, their company have rejected the job cause they care more for their worker. So I'm pig-sold in this case. How much I get? I think a lot, RM200 per day, but not sure including the meal or not? I will become rich after 2 weeks. Hey, we have to thankful to company for giving me allowance and sold me to the Sudan.

Compare to my ex-subcond, Mr. Voon, he is poor thing. If you follow his blog, that guy is really a poor thing. You see, he have been to Ukraine and Istanbul on April, Taiwan on May, then now he is at Spain. I heard, he is going to Korea next month. Really kesian him going to that kind of places. Sudan is much better.

I'm going to KK on Monday to find fault on the control system which build by a chiller specialist. I don't know how to find their fault since they are specialist and I'm only deadwood and build failure system. Hope can come back in 1 piece after commenting their system. As usual I need to pay for my own air ticket first and claim back after a month in order to finance the losing money company. And this time I will pay for my own food cause I feel malu to let company to reject my RM7 prebook flight food again. Too bad can't get extra colleague to go there cause I heard the company losing money again for that project.

Anyway, engineer is always being victimized, and the manager always lose manage the project/money. Just pray for me for coming back safely from Sudan, hope the flight can up and land smoothly, no war, don't sick and the chiller can just run smoothly once I'm there.

The following joke is not created by me. I just translate it from a friend. So, please don't catch me, I'm still single and virgin #^_^# and I want to marry soon.

Malaysian, Japanese and US doctors meet at the international seminar.

The Japanese doctor said: Ten years ago, there was a young man meet an traffic accident, and his finger was broken due to the collision. After the hospital surgery, this year he wons the international piano competition first prize.

Then the American doctor said: Ten years ago, there was a young man meet an traffic accident, and his feet ware broken due to that accident. After the hospital surgery, he wons the 100 meters gold medal in the last Olympic Games.

Malaysian doctor listened and sneer said: 30 years ago, there was a young man meet an traffic accident, and his brain was died, after deliver to the hospital, I transplant a pig's head to him, now he is our prime minister.

Hope to make you feel better.

I'm soulless

I'm not sure when it started, until recently I found out that I'm soulless.

Everyday I repeat and repeat the same task that I did yesterday or last week. You can say there is no movement, but I would say I'm circling with no progress.

I'm an engineer full with energy and dream when I just graduate. I continue improve my knowledge, cause I know if I stop I will no able to catch the technology. But unfortunately, I think I missed it :(

I wish I can found my way to catch back the train and continue my journey.

Are you ready?

Ok, Bolehland government announce the increment of the petrol from RM1.92 to RM2.70, which is RM0.78 or 40% increment.

So what happen next? Everything will up. The transportation fees are up, therefore, everything directly related or non-directly related are up. Those goods will not walk itself to the market. Do you think, this is the worst case? No! the next increment is on August, which is 2 months from now. At that time, the petrol price will be open to fluctuate according to market price. So, what is the price? It's > RM4.00.

As usual our PM make announcement that they will not increase the price today and will study on the petrol price. The next minute, as usual he change his fucking mind and announce the increment immediately today. I saw cars queuing on the petrol station to get the last drop of cheat petrol. Roads those are usually free moving are jam because too many drivers are trying to save some petrol money.

So what are the direct impact on me? I used to use around RM350 per month for my petrol and for new price, I will need to pay extra around RM150 per month and in other word, RM1800 per year. This is not yet including others increment.

So what can we do?
You can't do anything cause the government is not belong to the peoples, it's belong to some fucker. And we are so sohai to select those fuckers to work for us.

If you are interested, read this about the RM600 billion story.

What is the impact to Malaysia and Malaysian?

I'm not economist therefore I don't really know what actually going to be happen (you can read this). And from the engineer's point of view, it is going to be a very serious inflation.

Whether you like it or not, or you're happy or not, the Bolehland government will not pay a fuck of consideration nor sympathy to you. Just prepare yourself for the next wave.

Good luck!
