There was a time when I'm totally out of choice. So I simply lock the door and and sat in a corner. And stay silent for months. Waiting, waiting, and waiting. No answers from anyone.

Okay. I lied. I have attended an interview before, in Wangsa Maju. But there's no answer from them.

Waiting, waiting, and waiting.

And then someone wants me to meet her in her workplace. It's a new factory (but an old company), and they need lots of new workers. She asked me to work for her, as a supervisor. She is an assistant manager of a department. So I simply went there, asking for a secured job.

And they said something like working hour is around 7 am - 7 pm daily, Monday to Saturday, with not-so-high salary, etc. And I just accept it, because I have no other choice. Seriously, getting a job is extremely difficult nowadays.

And then there was this one call from I-don't-know-who.

"You're invited for an interview this Friday." - This call is actually from a company which is quite near to the one that I went for interview. I simply go there and fill the form, with no intention of getting hired there. Somehow, they call me for interview.

And there was another call. "You're hired as a production engineer. So please came in on this date, and you will need to sign your offer letter"


I went for supervisor interview, but it turns out that I was hired as an engineer.

And there's also another call a few days later. The company that I went for interview in Wangsa Maju called me, asking whether I'm still looking for a job. I replied "I'm hired for a company and will start working next few weeks"

And that was my story of getting hired.

In the meantime, my job is not really involve with what I've learned in UTM. Because my job scope involve with chemical/mechanical/manufacturing engineering. The only thing I need to focus is to monitor the parameters - temperature, flow rate, machine speed, etc. In a simpler words, it's not my dream job. But, whocares? As long as they gave me money, I will work hard for them. Besides, It's just 20 minutes form my home. Das ist ein Katzensprung.

Somehow, the story does not end there.

Someone asked me to submit my resume to her. She was a friend of my mother. Not really a close friend, but a friend. She says that she's looking for an electrical engineer (or electrical engineers) in Subang, I think. But once the job there is done, the workers gonna serve the main company - which is outside of Selangor. The good thing is, I can demand for higher salary. The bad news is, it's in Sarawak.

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

There was time when we're out of choice. But there's also a time when we're full of choices.

Maybe, it's my time for "the time for full of choices" and no more "the time when you can't make any choice". But, I still can't make any choice. I'm thinking of submitting my resume sooner or later, but there's no guarantee that they will call me. Or even if they hired me, I I'm still unsure whether I should work for them or not.

And, if I leave now, what will happen to the other production engineers? What will happen to the company? Are they ready to accept this news? 

It's my dream job.

And it will be in Sarawak.

Make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?

I've finished Tomb Raider 2013 for PlayStation 3 today. It is a truly a great videogame. It tells the story of Lara Croft, the young archaeologist  on her journey to become a survivor.

The story revolves around her decision to explore a certain part of of the Pacific ocean using a new route, which leads the whole exploration team to be stranded on an island. And her decision leads to the death of lots of people, and she feels so guilty to everyone. As she tried to protect and save all of the survivors, collecting relics and documents, using bow and shotgun, she becomes who she's meant to be - a tomb raider.

I spend the whole week to explore most part of the island. Looting from enemies, animals and plant to get experience and buy the skills .Getting salvages and upgrade the gears. I think the best part of the whole game is in the last stage of the game, where she tried to save Samantha.There's a lot of Solarii army and also the Stormguards that protects Queen Himiko. (And there's lots of bloody scene, which is why this game is not suitable for children)

There are three types of Survival Skills available -Survivor, Hunter and Brawler. Survivor helps Lara to survive and getting more experiences, tracking items on the map, getting more salvages, etc. Hunter is suitable for those who loves to make killer headshot and long range battle, while brawler is for short range attack.

The best weapon in the game is the final bow, which is the Competiton Bow. It can penetrate many solid surfaces, and suitable for one-arrow killer headshot. Plus, we can combine it with Napalm Arrows or Explosive Arrows.(Her signature weapon, the two pistols/handguns are only available at the end of the game, but we can't use them throughout the story mode after we finished the game.)

There'll be the sequel for this game next year, with title of 'Rise of the Tomb Raider'.


I'm thinking of three videogames I wanna play in the future - Arkham Origin, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and also Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark for PS3. And also Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire for Nintendo 3DS (but I don't have Nintendo 3DS. Huhu.)

That's all for now. Thank you for reading.

Oh, minggu depan cuti seminggu! Woohoo! Seminggu la bertapa depan tv tu nanti. Eheh.

I've started playing Tomb Raider 2013 for PS3 last week, but i haven't finish it yet. The latest gear that I got this morning is the grenade launcher. installed to the rifle. But my favorite weapon is  the bow (because it is silent and can be charged before release the arrow), followed by the shotgun (I use it for short range attack, instead of the climb axe that Roth gave to Lara Croft). And yes, this is the main reason why I didn't blog last week. Eheh.

Anyway, hari ni Selangor cuti. Engineer muda sorang ni pun main Tomb Raider dari pagi. Tapi tengah hari kitorang satu family keluar tengok wayang. And we decided to watch Big Hero 6. Jujur saya cakap, saya memang tak tau cerita ni pasal apa. Beli tiket pun atas dasar nak cepat-cepat masuk pawagam dan keluar awal. So cerita tu je la yang ada before 1 pm. Best gila kot cerita ni!

Bagi saya, cerita ni sedikit sebanyak membuka minda penonton tentang kemajuan teknologi pada masa depan. Dan cerita ni jugak menekankan kepentingan kreativiti dan sumbangan idea-idea gila daripada inventor/engineer/scientist kepada dunia.

Baymax is quite cute. Hoho. Saya boleh ketawa sekuat-kuatnya kat pawagam masa Hiro dengan Baymax lari dari villain yang pakai kabuki mask tu. Waktu Hiro 'sumbat' Baymax kat dinding dalam warehouse tu. Tapi waktu Baymax dapat kostum kedua dia, he lokks so cool! Idea microbot yang boleh pecah dan bercantum balik tu ala-ala transformium dalam Transformers: Age of Extinction, Benda ni macam nanobot la jugak. Nama bandar cerita ni San Fransokyo, gabungan nama San Francisco dan Tokyo. Nama watak-wataknya pun ada mix American dengan Japanese. Maksudnya ada percampuran budaya la antara barat dengan timur. Tapi klimaks cerita ni memang sedih la jugak. Sebab Baymax terpaksa korbankan diri dia untuk selamatkan Hiro. Hiro pulak waktu tu dah mula sayangkan Baymax.

I suggest that semua engineer dan juga student untuk elektrik/elektronik/mekatronik/mekanikal tengok cerita ni. Banyak benda korang boleh belajar dari filem ni.

That's all for today. See you again, insyaAllah.
