Adios… To Kelly

I wonder why we can’t get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together. Well. This is honestly a MISSION IMPOSSIBLE.

I was getting pretty shocked when she first informed me last month that she had submitted the resignation letter to her superior. She decided to leave this company finally.

About a year ago, before she gave birth, she did mention to leave here after her first baby was born. But she didn’t quit after that and I thought she might have received a better offered which attracted her to stick to her job again. So I was kinda forgetting about this matter afterward. Unfortunately, her mind of leaving was aroused again and it turns out as a fact now.

Very soon, or it feels more like just a click, here comes the moment to bid farewell to her. It’s really hard to get those words out from my mouth as though there is something which is heart-breaking. I could still remember the moment when she told me about her decision, my tears were kind of pricking at my eyes and I turned away, fiercely blinking them back. I knew she noticed that and she was emotionally affected too. I’m sorry, Kelly.

No matter how, I honestly want to let you know that I’m really glad to know you and have you to be my friend even though we didn’t hang out together or chat much like the friends did but you do owe a place in my heart. You are my BUDDY too!

I hate Good-Byes. But still, I have to say them to you, my dear buddy. Anyway, please do keep in touch with me even merely a simple warmest text message will do. I wish you would have more time for your little one and good luck in your next endeavor too! Adios…

Hi, Little En En!

This is her. En En - the baby gal whom Niko and I wanted to visit today. She just done her shower and dressed in her baby suit by the baby-sitter. Where was her Mummy??

Oh, here she was. Enjoying her breakfast. Oh no. She was complaining that she was tired of the same dish every day. She wanted the fried noodles and McDonald!! Daddy Seah, go and kiss her to get her shut up. Ha~ :P

She is so small and delicate when you holding her in your arm. You could feel that tiny heart beat and the little warm from her body. If this is your baby, I bet you would feel that you couldn’t love anything more in the world.

I could feel my heart melt away inside when she staring and smile at me. Sometimes I felt I could just do nothing and merely staying by her side. Oh En En, you little angel!

Mummy Seah and En En who was sleeping in her arm.

Let's had some group photos with En En, Mummy and Daddy Seah. Say CHEERS! Ooops. Shhh... En En was in her sweet dream now.

Niko, when would be our turn? Uhm... I don't know even!

Look at this sleeping beauty. She was tired.

Oops... Want to get her nose looks prettier when she grows up? This is the way.

Niko took off her teeny little sock. We both were so curious and wanted to see her tiny toes.

Oh, look! They are so little. Niko said they seemed like the moulded paper clay mounted to the foot. Erm... I felt they were liked the bubbles, loads of tiny different shape of bubbles joined together. Ha.

Her parents said she likes to sleep in this way (大字睡). Oh COOL!

En En: Oh my god. What do you want again? Daddy! Help me!!!

En En: Hey-hey. Get-away! Don't interrupt! I need my sleepppp...

The last, we put all the angpaos (from Niko, Kelly and I) on to this sleeping beauty. Ha.

Lomography, the Toy Cameras?

Hey, I just got to know this Lomography tonight when I did my shopping at a camera shop with my hubby (my hubby wants to buy a little digital camera for his sis). I saw this Fujifilm Instax 7s and the others, like Fisheye No2 White, Jelly Digital Lomo, Diana Mini, and so on. I thought they were toy cameras initially.

Oh my god. They look awesome! And pretty COOL! Don’t they? They are using film, just like the old classical fashioned cameras. Unfortunately, I haven't had chance to try them out just now. Anyway, they are really amazing!

~A New Stage~

Oh God, I manage to spare some times to get back here again eventually. I was really busy for the past few weeks and don’t think this is going to be last soon. No. I’m sure it would continue as I go. Don’t worry about me, I know I can cope it well; this is one of my New Year wishes for 2010 too. I believe God is leading me in front. He will care and look after me, as always. *wink*

Tell you what, there is a slight restructuring in our Test team lately after my superior, BK is promoted to be the Assistant Manager of the Manufacturing Engineering (ME) Dept. He now has a bigger responsibility and loads of issues he needs to look after. He hasn’t had much time to merely concentrate on Test issue now. Therefore, in order to keep the team progresses well, he has done a little bit of changing to the Test team. Low is leaving the Test team and being the leader of Fixture team, while Shahrul and I are taking over the Test team now.

Yes, as you see, there are two leaders in the team. But, both of us are in charge of different issue. Like me, I’m taking over the TII (type of the models transferred from US) and VIM (Visual Inspection process) issues while the rest is taken care by Shahrul. He has a greater technical experience on production support. So, there won’t be any conflict in between us so long as everything is arranged well.

Frankly, I did feel pressure with this sort of arrangement. I started to doubt my capability to be a leader and even felt depressed of every issue that came in endlessly. I afraid I would upset BK by the end. Luckily, he didn’t give up on me. “I have faith in you. So, just give your best! You never know what you gonna get,” this is what he encouraged me. Oh, he honestly a great motivator! He is right, all glory comes from daring to begin, so am I. I should grab this small opportunity as this could be the way and the only chance for me to succeed in my career. Well, I believe in that.

Of course, not everything would be going smooth when you first being the leader of the team unless you are really blessed. I have met a little problem – there is a guy in the team who is very unsatisfied with this arrangement and he even offends me.

This was happened just a few days ago. One morning, I approached him to follow up some VIM process stuff; he turned up impatient and very aggressive to me. He even questioned me impolitely why an Engineer A should have to report to an Engineer B (I’m Engineer B, means a junior in engineers ranking). You know what happened in the next second? He took off his badge and pointed it to me to REALLY show me that HE IS A TRUE ENGINEER A. To show off that his ranking is HIGHER THAN MINE. Hey, come on! What a bloody fool. I’m only assigned to look after the team but not to be his immediate superior. Why on earth he has to be so indignant at me. I didn’t want to argue any with a moron and therefore, asked him to talk to BK on his own. “I will. I will definitely ask him,” he replied me in fierce. Ok, go ahead.

He didn’t talk to me afterwards for the whole day. Well. I didn’t mind either. But this troublemaker had almost brought in a big trouble to the Test team the next day.

There was a lot of units had to be urgently shipped out to customer as planned. However, he was the one who preparing the test report didn’t send out the test report to the R & D team in US for shipment approval the day before the shipment. Without the approval, how could they ship the units to customer? We would fail to meet our commitment to our customer.

Our planning member was looking for him for the whole day and even sent a load of enquiry emails to him but he just simply ignored them. The planner was so irritated and we only got to know about this when she complained to me and BK. Luckily, there was some sort of quality issue which held the lot from shipment; else it would have entailed unnecessary trouble to the Test team and even the ME because we would have to answer the Management why we didn’t send out the report for approval. This was honestly a serious matter. Ok. This was not enough. Guess what he had done after he quarreled with me (about the Engineer A and B stuff which I mentioned before this)? He secretly and intentionally removed my email from the test report receivers’ list. This means I won’t be able to receive any update of the test data.

Oh, SHIT. What a real childish! His brainless attitude was indeed too much and all in all had certainly affected everyone’s job. By the way, he is great in spreading the FAKE. Besides this, I couldn’t find any of his contribution to the Test team.

Last time when BK asked him to take over the whole VIM process (there are two, Marrants and Wings processes), he screwed it. Until the end, BK requested me to lend him a hand by looking after the Marants process for him. So, I did it. When he was almost settled down with his Wings process, BK asked me to pass back the job to him. So, I taught him how to handle the Marrants process. And you know what he said? He asked me not to teach him like a teacher teaching a pupil. Oh-my-god. I had never thought like that. I just wanted to give him whatever knowledge I know and he was… truly hopeless! Sometimes, I felt I really wanted to dump him into the sea and let him chased by the sharks.

There was a moment in the past, the production manager was chasing him for the VIM report and he felt tension and went to tell BK that he wanted to resign (I clapped my hands in delight if he really did! Unfortunately, he didn’t quit at the end). He said he would rather be a postman or a school bus driver. Gosh. He can’t stand with a little pressure and just a teeny bit is enough kill him in horror. Thus, how could he survive outside? I could say he would be a great failure if he never changes.

OK. Enough to talk about him. I don’t want this hopeless screw loose creature to ruin my day.

Besides that, I’m indeed enjoyed my work and my new busiest ever life. It's GREAT! Ha-ha. I’m moving on constantly and this is what I want in my life. “Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all.

Happy 2010!!

Boom! It’s time to ring in “New Year 2010” – the time to share the happiness of new beginning and nostalgia of a year gone by. What are your new wishes in 2010? I hope to keep myself motivated and fulfill my new year with lots of good things and works. I’m feeling myself a bit exhausted lately because of I almost have to work about 12 hours everyday. So in this year 2010, I hope I could cope it well. And, I wish to have more time spending on blogging too. *wink*

Also, I hope I could have more and more time for my family too. I mean, I should have to go back to visit them more often. Honestly, I miss them so much here. I hope they all are doing well in 2010 and healthy and be full of the joy of spring.

And to my grandpa, I hope you will be getting well soon and remain healthy always. Mei Mei (my cousin), congrats on to be successfully recruited as MAS stewardess! So, is winning worldwide beauty contest become your next target? Hee-hee. Anyway, hope you would get a great achievement in your new career.

Lastly, to all of my dear friends (as well as those bloggers here) who I cherish most, hope your new wishes would come true and let’s toast for this new beginning and wishing each other prosperity, peace, health and happiness! Cheers…
