Working Diary 4

2 Weeks had passed just like that !

Wow, that was fast. I could still remember freshly my first day of work. It just seem like it happened yesterday. My two week of work is mostly about revision and some enhancement on internal application.

Happy / Sad to say that my working life is still kinda relaxing.

For sure, I will love the Friday more now than last time. All hail the TGIF.

Looking forward for next week challenge.

Working Diary 3

Today morning started with a light rain. So, traffic jam was expected.

But I still managed to reach my workspace at some where near 9 am. Haha, actually it does not matter at all. Good thing about this company is the flexibility. No entry record is recorded.

Finally today I get some butt-kicking action. But it is a real small kicking. Just some simple modifying and enhancement. Weighing the task difficulty compared to what I done in IBM, it is small potato. I was given time line until tomorrow, and I get it done in 1 hour.

Since the project leader is so busy, so I back to my usual self-revision for the rest 7 hours. At least the feel of guilt was disappear for that 1 hour.

Working Diary 2

Today the weather was great. Morning traffic was okay too.

My workstation had shifted to a more spacey place with larger table. And I get to change my small monitor and snail-speed cpu as well to a bigger monitor and more powerful CPU =)

I am still reading today. Most of the time I was revising book and searching information from internet. Today I get to know I going to assigned a project soon ! =)

Yesh ! I am bored to death on my work station. I felt terrible guilty accepting salary but contributing nothing. You know, when your mind is too free is very tiring. In fact it is more tiring compare to when you are busy and your mind is focus.

Gotta say I am really blessed. My mentor is a super caring person. Though she was busy, but she will make sure to spend enough time on me.

You know, one of my biggest worry during my first day of work is that, I will have to eat alone. I was thinking people usually prefer to eat with their comfortable gang and I will needs some time to mix into em. But I was touched by their friendliness. Although I am placed to sit at back end corner which kinda far away from my team. But they are still walk to me and invite me for a group lunch.

Guess what, the parking is free ! They prepare a large parking site just outside of the office building and placed some security guard to look over it. Recalling my experience on Damansara Height, the parking is a worst nightmare. I have been there for few interviews and get chopped a lump of money for the parking.

I literally got to high speed fly to the car park after interview to save myself a few Ringgit.

Working Diary 1

Here goes my first working week. My first week in the profession of Developer. Well, I gotta say that I am shined by a lucky star this year.

When I am just few days away from striking my pen on a job offer at some particular company at Kelana Jaya, I get an unexpected phone call from a company.

Well, I had been twice to that company for both assessment and interview. The company is really nice actually but I am not satisfy with what they offer me.

So, I had declined them in my heart at first.

Because of that unexpected call, I changed my mind immediately because the offer is too good to be rejected. And so, I went to the company for the third time to meet my manager to be for a nice conversation. After understanding my job scope and my future prospect in this company, I decided hop on board.

So, here come the another Developer in town.

Specifically my position is a lotus note developer. If you remember, I have 7 months of experience in IBM doing the exact same thing. That is why I said, lucky star is shining on me. My first week of work is about reading and googling around for memory refreshment.

My workspace is a small desk which placed at corner back in the office. So, I am very near to the big window of that 10th floor building. Gotta say that I really love the view of highway with cars running on them. I could check the traffic condition before making my decision when to go back.

Rat Race

I had secured a job.

Actually in this ICT field. It ain't that hard to secure a job upon graduation. Thanks to few professional certificates that I took previously, many companies took the initiative to call me instead. I was just accepting any invitation available and check em out during interview.

At last, I had make my decision. And my first day of job will be on next monday.

So, this is it huh.

Another chapter in my life. Another dot in the saturated workforce.

Government and Bank will be happier. Another tax payer to fill the coffer and another potential credit card holder who might be a shopaholic.

After a rough math counting on my expectant salary, I guess I still could survive with it. Thanks to my super father that had given me a car to drive. With a car that was already out of mortgage plus I am a KL-lite, I could say that I save quite a big chunk from the living cost.

Well, money creates desire and greed. Sooner or later, I will be indulging myself with all the wonderful things I could buy. Especially if somehow I get into relationship. The budget will be too complex to calculate.

Being fear of without money make people working hard,
When they get their paycheck, greed and desire starts people to think about all the wonderful things they can buy.

Then the pattern had been set.
The pattern of getting up to work, pay bills, getting up to work, pay bill, getting up to work, pay bills.... and the lives are then run forever by fear and greed.

Welcome to Rat Race.

I knew I will soon be joining the Rat Race. In fact, all my peers also will. So, how fast can we get out from this Rat Race ?

Lets compete shall we  =)
