Early or Late?

Yep, I've been working late. Like 10:50PM latest so far.

And I love it.

Why? Think of it this way...

When you leave early (say... 5:50PM which is so far my earliest) then you get stuck with everyone else on the way home (Seremban Highway, Jalan Duta, Segambut... that's some of the roads I'll pass on my way home), it sucks, big time.

But...

When you leave late (say... after 8 or 9PM) you get to drive on a free way. No jam at all. And you get to speed. lol. I'm not encouraging you to speed, by the way.

Which would you prefer?
Leave early, jam the whole way home or
Leave late and have a free drive home

Honestly, I hate traffic jam. So working late sounds good to me.

Do you agree with me?

---------------------------------------------

I feel the need to unleash my patriotic side.

Selamat Menyambut Hari Kemerdekaan yang ke-50!

Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!

Work was...

A slight abstract report.

First day of work was faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar from boring. So far till I had to do overtime until 10:30PM. Yep, you read right, 10:30PM. It was busy busy busy.

Before lunch I got a work done. After lunch I had to do a work that was so near deadline. So it was rush rush rush. Until 10:30PM also cannot finish! Seriously! My Snr. AD told me it's late and I should go back but come back early the next morning.

So today I went early and continue doing the work till about 1:30PM++.

Anyway, today I managed to complete my works fast and went home at 6:30PM

And you know something...?

I love my job!

Sunday, August 26, 2007

First day

Tomorrow (27th August 2007) will be my first day of work.

Yep, I'm starting work.


A new chapter in my life.

Am I suppose to feel nervous or excited? I don't really know. I just know I'm gonna have face something I've never done before (really work, work) and I'm feeling pretty good at the moment.

Although I'm quite disappointed that I would not have a friend at work but I guess I'll just have to make new ones. Pretty excited and afraid about this though. I wonder if they are friendly... like the ones I met when I did my internship at Studio DL. I hope they are.

How would working life be...? In this line I'm in... I'm expecting very busy after lunch when all the marketing people go out and get some projects for us, me to do. And not forgetting the long hours after the official working hours (0900 - 1730). Can't run from this.

I do hope that place (Sri Kembangan) would be a safe place after 5:00PM. The area where I'll be working consist mainly of factory lots and it's very quiet. That being said, I've made up my mind to not be the last person in the office. I don't care if there's extreme load of work to be done. I'm leaving once everyone else leaves. I don't want to be an addition to the statistic.

Whooo.... long time didn't write so much already.

In conclusion, I hope to gain much experience from this place where I work. Gain some new friends. Abstain from office politics. Work smart. Work hard. Get a pay raise. Impress my bosses. Stay safe.

Yep, I'm gonna enjoy working life... I hope...

I'll be glad to hear any experience you want to share :)

Conversation with dad today.

Dad : Your photos now are not as good as when you were using the (Canon Powershot) A400.
Me : Uh...
Dad : Some photos are quite blur
Me : Must be the Auto-Focus focused wrongly
Dad : Better camera must have better results..
Me : Uh-Oh... [Silently blaming the AF, ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, yaadaa yaadaa yaadaa]

Ok, ok, I know it's me. I'm learning okay. Give me some time.

Someone! Anyone! Teach me how to use a dSLR!

SQ07 Pre Ceremony

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini talk :
Someone called me today and asked if I have a dSLR and asked me if I could participate in something and get paid.

Last Friday (27th July) was the official Opening Ceremony for Sequence 2007 (SQ07), a graduation degree show.

With every event there will be a "pre" thing. So this post will be on the pre-opening ceremony of SQ07.

Almost everyone gathered at 1U on time (10:30AM) and we got briefed and started setting up our panels, etc etc etc.

I was busy setting up my panel as well. (That means no photos of my fellow graduate setting up their work)

The shooting started after everyone has settled down and finished putting up their panels. That includes me.

There was this balloon thing for the opening gimmick

And some took the advantage of photographing with it
