Coming home

Finally, I going home tonight, together with my natural enemy, Mr. Toh. This trip will be his last trip to the desert since he going to leave us to the greener land soon. But please don't quote my word as I hardly can predict what his next move. My project manager also took the earlier flight to go back to Bolehland this afternoon, and this is also his last trip to this piece of desert.

So if you ask me when is my last trip, I can only tell you that I don't know since I always the last person who leave the battlefield. Anyway, I hope I can stand it until the completion of the project which I believe is still quite sometime to go. Again, don't quote me, cause I may leave sooner than you can expect. So, lets time record the history.

Staying here for two weeks this time and can't really do anything since there is no skill manpower to do my job. Anyway, I'm waiting until all the equipment have been installed, then I will come to complete the system, hope I'm still with the company that time.

So, everyone seem to be leaving this company which previously has nearly zero resignation over ten years. So what happen? Please don't ask me, I don't know. Anyway, it is none of my business also.

July will be a travel month for me. Next week, I will go to Penang to attend the manager training again. Thanks to company for spending the money to make sure we become a good manager.

Then mid of July we will have sport club trip to Medan. After so many years that we didn't have any sport club trip, finally we got one this year. Again thanks to the management for giving us this trip.

By end of the month, I will going to Krabi and Phuket with some of my colleague. I hope the company don't ask me to cancel my leaves or else I can't finish it by end of the years.

Ok, sign off now.

It's summer

So, it's officially summer today, 21st June 2011. We also call today as summer solstice or you can call it tropic of Cancer. So, what does it mean?

Some basic about the Earth. We know that our Earth is tilted 23 degrees and 26 minutes. Therefore, on the day that the sun reached the highest point in the sky which is 23d26', then we named that day as summer solstice. And on this day, we will have the longest day (shortest night) in a year and after this day, then length of night is growing longer and length of day getting shorter.

So, what does the summer solstice mean to you?

Inside Job

"Why should a financial engineer be paid four times to a hundred times more than a real engineer? A real engineer build bridges, a financial engineer build dreams. And when those dream turn out to be nightmares, other people pay for it."

Andrew Sheng, Chief Advisor of China Banking Regulatory Commission.

How much you should be paid?

Recently I start to wonder how much I should be paid. So, I google my question and I found the answer from Kelly Services' salary guide 2010/2011.

On page 25, second row, electrical & instrument engineer, degree holder, with 4-6 years of experience, the salary should be between RM4500 - RM6500.

Then I search for my current post, engineering manager, but somehow they don't have this position. The nearest position is lead electrical engineer, where his job function is to lead a team of engineers in design base environment. Quite close is it? So, how much he should be paid?

On page 24, first row, a degree holder with 8 years working experience, the salary should be between RM7000 - RM12000.

Ok, now is the serious part, before I become a manager with more than 6 years of working experience, my salary is much lower than the lowest paid of E&I engineer; and now I am a manager but my salary is still lower than the lowest recommended paid of lead electrical engineer.

So, when my company said they have adjusted our paid based on the market rate, it's just bullshit!

Hello Chinaman, you know what are you doing or not?

What's hot in the market today? I believe nothing hotter than Taiwan's food scandal and it make me reopen my chemical book.

So, what do you know about DEHP? Well, it's an organic compound, it's colourless viscous liquid which soluble in oil but not in water. It's widely used as plasticizer in manufacturing of articles made of PVC. In a layman term, it's plastic. Because of it's plasticizing properties and our genius Chinaman come out with a genius idea, "Why don't we use it to replace palm oil as clouding agent for our product?". In their mind, every single cent they saved, is a cent gain in their pocket, other than that is none of their business.

So, what will happen after you consumed these products? The most significant is the effect on male, it will feminizing a male. Now, I begin to understand why more and more gay, especially at Taiwan.

Do you still remember the melamine case? It's another type of cheap plastic that mixed with milk powder or dairy products in order to earn more profit.

I really need to thanks God for giving all Chinese great intelligent and evil mind. We can create anything, and we are as good as God. You heard about the man made egg? I can't understand how us Chinese can create egg from chemical compound. The creator shall be awarded with Noble prize. And I believe in very near future we can create chicken, beef, fish, and whatever food you can name it. It will be tasted as good as real food. You will never able to differential it until you use very precise lab instrument to decompose it into smaller element, then you will found plastic element in all these foods.

I don't know how many products in the market are really safe to consume, and I don't want to know also. You will dare not take any foods once you'd heard all the stories about food. You can start to do farming if you want to live longer, or you can move into jungle and share the house with monkey.

Anyway, don't worry, because we, Chinese, will destroy this world very soon. So you will only suffer for maybe another ten years and you will die with all kind of cancels.

So, to all the Chinaman, please continue your good work to produce more and more plastic foods, make yourself a billionaire and die together with all these dirty money.
