Love you guys!

Amazing 2009


2009 definitely has brought lots of good things for me. These were the few worth mentioning things that had happen. I hope it’s not too late to wish you guys a Happy 2010! Yippee! Good things that happen to me in chronological order:

Jurong Shipyard
I had participated in Engineering Exchange Initiative, Singapore Education and Career Visit (SECAV) in January. We went to Jurong Shipyard, Nanyang Technology University and National University of Singapore.

2. Industrial Training
During in between 3 months of semester break, I had the opportunity to do my industrial training at Sime Darby Technology Centre, Petaling Jaya. That was and thank God, only lasted there for a week. I moved to my brother’s house for the rest of my weeks there.

This time my friends and I went to University Malaysia Sabah to participate in National Chemical Engineering Symposium 2009 and you guys already knew, our team won the first place in the presentation competition. This year, the theme was Global Water Crisis: What can We Do? The exposure with others future chemical engineers from all over Malaysia was such an eye opening experience.

4. Bro’s wedding
My big brother was married at the age of 26 years old! Congratulation!

5. Sime Darby Engineering Sdn. Bhd.
I was lucky enough to be short listed for an interview with Sime Darby Engineering Sdn. Bhd. which located in Pasir Gudang, Johore. This company is the biggest company under Sime Darby Energy & Utilities and they are designing, producing and commissioning oil rig platform for oil and gas companies. There were only 6 of Sime Darby scholars were called with 3 of us are still studying, 2 already got other jobs and 1 just graduated. The interview session was, how I should put this, was super INTENSE. Try imagining you’re surrounded by 28 assessors from Sime Darby Engineering and another 2 from Sime Darby Head Quarters, Human Resource department. OUCH! The good great news is I got the job! But the not so good news is I am not sure I am mentally and physically prepared enough to work there. Oh and I am afraid of height. Hehe.

6. Finished design part 1
Even though I only scoring average grade for this subject, the experience of building a chemical plant from a grass root basis (from scratch) was priceless. All those sleepless nights and heated arguments are stressful but worthy.

7. On the way of completing FYP
Not only the project is almost complete, a master student and I (we did the same topic) are were forced by our kind supervisor planning to submit a collaborative paper on our research project to the International Conference on Process Engineering and Advanced Materials 2010 that will be held on June in Kuala Lumpur. If everything went well, the paper will be submitted at the end of this month.

8. Read more books than ever
While doing my final year project, I had the ample time on my hand in between waiting to collect samples. I read more than 10 books this year. An amazing number for the average 2 or 3 books per year :) My current favorite books are by James Patterson, Mitch Albom and David Sedaris. AMAZING!

9. Reached 22 years old
What is the great thing of being older? I just wish I am a little bit wiser this year.

10. The best New Year celebration ever!
Bukit Merah Laketown Resort
This year around, I celebrated New Year with my friends and one of my very much sportive lecturers at Bukit Merah Laketown Resort. It’s a waterpark resort in Taiping Malaysia. Thank you Dr. Hekarl Uzir!

nikillas said...

mine is not so amazing too..

shandye. said...

10 books per year?

aih... i guess malaysian in general ARE still not into reading. but then again, considering the fact that most of us teenagers are avid internet users, does reading blogs, online newspapers and whatnot counts as part of reading as well? hehehe... =-X

juLia d Bubbles said...

got a job?? congratsss!!!

Hav u read Master of the Game by Sidney Sheldon? if yes, go find the sequel Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game by Bagshawe ;) Amazingly amazing!

Bluecrystaldude said...

how much do Malaysian really read per year? I am not sure whether my number is in the average range or not, but 10 books per year (of course, it doesn't include my educational books) for me was quite high

Bluecrystaldude said...

Hopefully this year would be better! :)

Bluecrystaldude said...

Happy 2010 to you too LJ!

Bluecrystaldude said...

Oh! I think I have read Master of The Game, but not the sequel. Sidney Sheldon is one amazing author too! Tho i haven't read any of him lately. Thanks for the suggestion tho.

BTW, I am not sure I will take the job offer though. I'm actually leaning towards management rather than technical.
