World Cup

finally, it's final!
Germany vs Argentina!
as in my mind, the 1st World Cup I watched was 1998...
and that time I was supporting Netherlands...
because of Dennis Bergkamp and Marc Overmars...
well, need not to explain why was I supporting the Oranje...
bowed out in the semi-final by Brazil...
it should be 4-2 if I am not wrong, wiki 1st...
yes! it was 4-2...
followed by a heartbreak World Cup 2002...
whereby the French was knocked out in the 1st round...
an earlier flight home for Vieira, Henry and Wiltord...
2006, the head butt final...
again, a missed penalty by Trezeguet resulting the cup won by the Azzuri's...
France became the losing finalist and I still can't forget the moment Zidane walked pass the World Cup...
so near yet so far!
as for World Cup 2010, I started to support any team with Gunners around...
was preferring Van Persie's rather than Fabregas but ended up with the Spanish became the World Champion...
and this year, there are three Gunners in the final...
hopefully, they will triumph against the Argentine!
Ozil, Poldi and BFG, I am on your side...
I believe this final will be the only World Cup match I will be watching...
hopefully by 2018, I will have a child or two, watching football with me!

a continuous work until either 7, 8 or 9pm...
and usually about 11-12am, time to sleep...

Quarter Updates

unbelievable!
had not been posting for like 4 months!
well, had been very busy for the past few months...
three trips down south, or may be four, five?
two trips to the northern of Malaysia...
for work, had been busy with my department work...
basically, I would say the company is expanding but not my department...
job quantity had been increased drastically...
but fortunately, there are always colleague around who are willing to lend a hand...
besides, had been doing different kind of organization to ensure the smoothness of my department...
hopefully, sooner or later, everything will be on track...
another issue will be abnormal working time...
guess I had been posting picture whereby I am still at the job site during night or even midnight!
this is seriously causing trouble because every time I got panic once I saw the customer name appeared on my phone!

nothing can be done thus, just hope the project will be finished as soon as possible!
guess those are some updates of my work...
as for me myself, I got married officially this month!
17th May, 2 days after our 5th anniversary...
although the traditional Chinese or actual wedding is 4 months away from now, there are a lot of preparation work to be done...
for example, pre-wedding photo-shooting, wedding dinner dish test and a lot more!
fortunately, one by one had been completed!
besides, my house renovation had commenced!
expecting a busy May and June...
hopefully everything will be set before my wedding...
as for now, it's time to sleep as tomorrow I will be expecting technical work...
thus, good night!

冲上Crane霄2 Finale Part 2

previously on 冲上Crane霄2... :D
the contactor is replaced but there's still some problem with the long travel of the overhead crane!
the last day begin with a prayer... :D
I was praying that everything to be smooth on the day...
as soon as the environment is bright enough for me to work, I got Mr. Lee to drop me at the site...
and to be frank, I solve the breakdown in just a mere half an hour...
all I could say is that I am not calm enough on the previous day!
the error was quite simple but what make it so difficult is that the error is came from the part which it was not supposed to be at fault...
I guess the major problem of this breakdown is more a mental one...
thus, no matter in doing anything in future, always expect the unexpected!
well, this 2nd 3 weeks stint is not as smooth as the 1st one in terms of work...
facing delay and unorganized arrangement...
moreover, attitude and the non-professionalism of individual add to ruin the whole assignment...
anyhow, I am still glad to be bombarded by these challenges, if not, it will be a bored trip...
and also, what I am going to post if there's nothing happened? :D
as for now, trim my hair with a hiked price and is expected because of the late return...
have some top for CNY but I am still looking for bottoms...
too bad, time is limited...
so hopefully, I will have the chance of doing some last minute shopping tomorrow...
guess it's time for me to sleep...
too tired and basically, do not have nice rest upon arrival...
so, good night!
but before that, as usual, if the series ended, the will be a song!

冲上Crane霄2 Finale Part 1

it's been a while of non-posting!
because of bad internet as well as stressed work schedule!
thing had not been easy over here...
basically, main problem is because of the unorganized arrangement as well as bad weather!
well, all but one overhead crane had been commissioned...
the only one is due to pending mechanical installation but this is not well informed to me!
push this back to Tuesday, I was going to the west area where 3 overhead cranes are situated...
these 3 overhead cranes were supposed to be done in one day!
upon reaching, is found that all the overhead cranes are not energized!
this really spoil my plan as I do not have mobile phone, I have to go all the way back to the office!
and I don't have a personal vehicle, it meant, bus!
besides, the long travel drive of one overhead crane had not been installed!
then, on Wednesday, I managed to finish two out of three, the remaining is still because of the long travel drives!
I made an effort to inform them a day earlier but it seemed like what I am saying is being ignored!
and the answer is, the long travel drive had been installed according to Mr. Peter...
excuse me, I was there and right in front of my eyes, it is not installed!
then after a meeting, they realized that they had dismantle it for the second time and I am right...
fine, I will wait until afternoon...
and finally, my commissioning job begins...
all begin well for hoisting and cross travel...
but when come to long travel, it was not able to run...
and upon opening the control box, one of the long travel contactors is jammed!
in my heart was like, why doesn't this happened on the 1st overhead crane but the last one!
my flight is on 26th and I am running out of time to wait for spare part!

go right back to the office for meeting...
a call to office and thankfully, KK reminded me of the commission spare as well as 2-years recommended spare part...
lucky, the damage part is part of the 2-years recommended spare part...
but as usual, to get one item in a very systematic company need a lot of procedure...
and the only thing we can do is until getting the documentation done...
and here come Thursday, I was in the office and I think every 10 minutes, I made Mr. Lee to update me on the items...
again, if I have a personal vehicle, I will be able to collect the item myself but unfortunately, no...
I had a sense of bad happenings so I don't want to delay my task to allow more buffer time in case something not right really happen...
thus, I urge for the items and finally, it was in my possession on 10am...
but, the weather out there was too bad and work had to be stopped!
heavy mist is around the whole premises!
I will have to wait until after lunch!
and finally, after lunch, the mist is off and that trigger the resume button of my race against time once more...
upon 冲上Crane霄, my 1st mission was to replace the contactor immediately but my helper told me that he did not bring my tool bag!
I made a call to him before I go to the west area and his reason is that I did not turn up in the morning so he thought I am not coming...
I made a call!
I made a call!
I made a call!
I was damn piss off and I remember my phrase...
'I don't care whatever kind of shit method you use, I need tools now! now!'
fortunately, he had screwdriver and that is more than enough for me do conduct the part replacement...
and upon changing, the overhead cranes worked!
I happy for like, may be 3 minutes?
then I found another issue, why does the fast speed of the forward long travel is triggered automatically?
as for backward, the fast speed is not able to be triggered!
I began with checking the wire termination...
dismantle this and re-install that, check here and there...
as for the control box, there should not be any problem because it's tested back in my factory but it seemed like the problem is from there!
frankly, I began to be panic!
I was not able to cool myself down to troubleshoot!
I made a professional move of going away from the overhead crane because I am quite sure I need some time to think...
while on the way back to office, I managed to cool myself down a bit and started to think carefully...
gave a call to KK again asking for his guidance as well as discuss on this issue...
he did provide some information but at last, I will still be the one to solve it as I am at site currently...
to be frank, at this hour, I am quite worry on the task tomorrow, whether can I solve it...
but at least, I have some confidence on this compared to yesterday...
I guess my heart had flew back to Malaysia and that blinded me...
well, the rest for today enable myself to be energized once more, for the one last overhead crane...
besides, I told myself, I am an engineer, if I am not the one to solve it, who else?
so, let's await for 冲上Crane霄2 Finale Part 2!

冲上Crane霄2 Ep 4

it's been a while I had not been posting!
had been busy with site work but the non-posting also caused by unstable internet!
anyway, the weather here is cooler than expected...
I can stand the cold temperature but not the mild wind which blew over my body!
that is why I went to Abu Dhabi again last Friday... :D
begin with my lunch...
ice-cream!
seriously, ice-cream!
and it was all the way to Abu Dhabi...
I managed only two hours there...
with the main agenda of getting winter gear to ensure I am working comfortable...
after going around the mall and get those items...
get myself a fast food dinner as time is not allowed for me to take anything better than that...
but still, chose something not so familiar in Malaysia...
Popeye!
and after that, it is all the way back to the camp...
and now, introducing...
Excellift Winter's Uniform!

冲上Crane霄2 Ep 3

2nd day!
began with requisition of guidance...
thus, was brought to the overhead crane which is still under the tag of 'WIP'...
spent like half an hour guiding them what to do and then, it's off to the site office again...
nothing else can be done as assistant is still having his outstanding job...
thus, basically, just sit in the office browsing around...
and of course, checking on all the GA drawing which will ease the limit switch commission the next day...
anyway, I got hungry very easily this time...
mainly because of the winter season...
the weather here is like in Genting Highlands...
but with nothing surrounding the site and strong wind is everywhere, I got chilled!
well, let's hope everything will goes smoothly until the end of this mobilization!

冲上Crane霄2 Ep 2

kick start the day with a Korean breakfast!
and then off I go to the site...
well, was required to join the site mechanical inspection...
as usual, last minute notice...
but basically, nothing much as most of the overhead cranes had been commissioned during the last trip...
and besides, mechanical inspection normally involved only visual check as the inspector will not climb up...
thus, just a few frequently asked question to be answered...
and of course, having the touch up painting as punch list, as usual... =.=
as for the noon, I attended the site commission course, whereby a badge was then issued...
for your information, I did not attend any other special course other than the typical safety induction but now, majority of the site had been handed over to the end user...
so, a lot of site had been upgraded to limited access area and to go in, another special pass is required...
thanks God, I had that just after a short briefing as I am the only trainee...
well, it also observed that there are a lot of empty seats in the office as the final hand over dead line is approaching...
basically, just these updates and another good news to share is...
my assistant is still here...
which save me a lot of time of re-teaching everything...
hopefully I will have a smooth day tomorrow!

冲上Crane霄2 Ep 1

UAE again!
touched down approximately 7am local time...
as usual, there will be story at the immigration...
and a good one this time...
a check on my passport diverted me to the special lane for GCC countries... :)
which meant just a 10 minutes wait in that zone...
then, picked up and all the way to the site camp!
next, rang Mr. Lee on the arrangement to site but he asked me to rest for a day as tough flight on the previous day will risk my work as climbing up is required...
thus, just spent the day in my room...
well, not too much time for another MV though...
as the flight is tiring this time because the passenger beside me sleep soundly!
even ear studs are not able to block the snore!
spent the time in flight watching two shows...
one is 中国合伙人...
another one is 消失的子弹 but there is 20 minutes to go, perhaps the return journey?
well, guess this is the updates and happenings on the 1st day!
will kick start what is left!
let's 冲上Crane霄 again!

2013

finally, it had been another fruitful year!
well, little but major changes had happened!
1st up, from a graduate mechanical engineer, I had evolved into a self pro-claimed commissioning electrical engineer!
tried a lot of different thing this year...
having myself to be as a trainer, conducting training lesson...
had also been to overseas to conduct supervisory task...
which the most remarkable to be the latest one...
in UAE!
endorsed by an appreciation letter!
there goes the content...
We send this letter to appreciate for your courtesy extended during the supervision service period of Mr. Eddy. He has shown us professionalism of your company by performing excellent job with superior knowledge and diligent work attitude so once again, cemented ties between Excellift and S****** as a future business partner.'
working career had been smoother compare to 2012...
although there's a few set back which I nearly resign, in fact letter was submitted, but that awaken me to become a true leader...
well, please take this phrase seriously, I am only awakened, but never close to success at this moment... 
anyhow, might turn back to 2nd or even 1st gear in pursuing my career further for this year as I had important agenda this year...
2nd, I get myself a new car!
as birthday present but to have the car in just less than 2 years of working is really out of expectation and special gratitude must be given to my company...
as said, little but major!
as for the agenda this year, it will be my wedding of course!
but it's still early to talk about it in detail...
so for me, just a simple...
Happy New Year!
but bare in mind, if you are thinking of having something different or a start for something, you don't really have to wait for a new year...
because it's just another day in a year...
24 hours, never less, never more...
again, it's my 5 cents...
and now, it's countdown for Arsenal vs Cardiff City!
