As many of you know, I work in a new company since early this year, on the 2nd January 2008 to be exact. I will be doing the same old boring job, just maybe slightly different from what I did in my previous company in term of scale and size of the projects. After two and half years working at the previous company, I felt it is the time to move on. Life is pretty mundane after a while. Everything because so repetitive, and we call it life? Same shit different day. I promised myself not to live my life that way. It is way too boring for me. Life should be interesting, no?
One of the reason I left is because I want to feel what it is like to work in a bigger company. Where you can meet more people and have more activities. My previous company, there were only 12 of us. 2 admins, 4 draftwomans, 4 engineers. I listened with envy everytime my my friends mentioned their company trips, activities such as sports day, family day, annual dinner. Sounds so fun! Well, I am the type of person that is not very comfortable doing things alone. I hate to be alone, that is why you will never see me eating outside by myself. I will take away my meal and eat it at home, watching my tv. (TV freak remember?) I love meeting people. You learn a lot from meeting many people. Each with their own shits. That is why I think many of my friends love to ask me to join them their gatherings and activities for I seldom decline their invitation.
And I am glad to be in the new company, so far. Meeting many new people. I was suprised to know that there are many new faces in the company when I joined. Reporting on the first day, I met this one guy also waiting at the lobby, also his first day at the company. After we reported, the admin lady brought us around to introduce us to the rest of the staffs. On our way out to the lift to go to next floor, I saw another lady reporting for duty. She was sitting at the lobby, reading newspaper. She looked up, our eyes met, and she smiled. Oh my! She is pretty hot! Haha! I am happy already being in this company. She is a Malay girl, wearing tudung. But, race or religion has nothing to do with one looking pretty or not right? Pretty is pretty, good looking is good looking.
I remember many times back then in university when I remarked to my friends ‘Eh, check out that girl. Sweet heh?’, they took a quick peek at the girl and looked at me and said ‘But she’s Indian.’ (Or Malay if the girl is Malay). Oh I was with my Chinese friends at that time. How weird. For them, if you are a Chinese, you will only look at Chinese girls and you will never lay eyes on any girl from other races, what more to say she is pretty. Haha! Well, back to the pretty lady, I finally get the chance to meet her on the next day, when she was brought around the office to introduce herself 🙂
Well, 2 weeks in the new company I am yet to do much things. I was given many reports and manuals to read. I bored myself to death reading it. It is like back to uni again, staring at the books with eyes wide open, but mind travelling elsewhere. (Not thinking of that Malay girl lah! I see many pretty girls already, pretty immune now. Hahah!). I should master the sleeping stance – sleeping with eyes open, so I can pretend like busy reading when I am actually sleeping. I want to do a ‘Pak Lah garfield mode’, sleeping anywhere and anytime, but I just do not have the talent like him.
Actually most of the time for the past weeks, I just pretending that I was busy doing things, clicking and typing at my computer when I actually busy uploading files, setting up this lousy blog, facebooking haha! Well, it is normal for newcomer to a new company to have his precious time lazying around for the first few weeks, right? Do not scare him first, when he is settled down, then only the slavery begin. Hah! Looking forward for the coming days.. hope to share more stories with you guys.. Enjoy the video ‘The New Kid In Town’ by Eagles ~!
