Conquering Broga

May 24, 2009 at 8:36 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

I went hill climbing at Broga with KF last Tuesday. It was my first time to go hiking. It was fun but exhausting. Being an anemic and a person with weak stamina, hiking wasn’t easy for me. I was constantly in oxygen depletion condition and kept panting most of the time. Luckily I didn’t pass out, or else I couldn’t imagine how KF gonna rescue me.

Despite all the hardship I suffered, I forgot all of it when I reached the top. I know, for those who have conquered Broga, it was nothing surprising or to  be bragged about as the way up was easy by just following the trail. But to me, the success was greater compare to swimming for 2 km or finishing a marathon 🙂

The scenery from hill top was splendid. The air was cooling although it was about 9.30 a.m. when we reached the top. I was fascinated by the tranquility. There were no other hikers in sight.

it makes me crack

I attended a career fair at PWTC last Friday. Chee wei, Sohuen, Ching yin and I went to the career fair together. It was an impromptu decision. Whenever I make a decision on the spur of moment, it always ended up frustrating.

I was kinda disappointed as there weren’t many companies that offered jobs for chemical engineering fresh grad. A lot of companies turned us down when they heard we were majoring in chemical engineering field.

Chemical engineering was a course that needed higher pointer to get compared to other engineering courses but in the end, the most number of unemployed engineering fresh grad was from chemical field. Wth!

So, half a day was wasted. I treasure my time and I detest it when it’s wasted like that.  Walking in pointed shoes increased my agony. Seeing some of my coursemates who already got quite some good offers freaks me out.

Anyway, after that, Chee wei and I had vegetarian food at a shop in Kepong. Everything cost only 2 bucks, vegetarian chicken rice, vegetarian pan mee, vegetarian wantan mee, you name it. After that we went for dessert at Mill Wheel.

Superlicious 😀

At least good and cheap food in a conducive environment compensate for the disappointing career fair. On the way back, we got lost.

Chee wei intended to go back to Jalan Ipoh and then to back to UKM as he wasn’t familiar with Kepong. Mana tau, Jalan Ipoh directs to highway to Ipoh. He turned and turned and turned and ended up in Rawang. I LOL when I saw “selamat jalan” sign, sure fire sign of getting farther from Selangor/KL and nearer to who knows where. He turned again and this time we saw Batu Caves, the looooooooooooooooooong stairways and the big golden statue. I attempted to take some pictures of it but to no avail. I was either being blocked by cars or buildings. This was my best shot although it sucks a big hell of time. Please overlook the gigantic ad board and pay attention to the statue behind it 🙂

He turned and turned again and finally we were back on the correct track. We both agreed that it was not that bad to get lost. At least we were that near to Batu Caves, our greatest discovery of the day. Everyone would be shocked at our jakun-ness when we saw Batu Caves as we shouted and I bet the frequency of my high-pitched voice was beyond the acceptable level set by WHO.

Engineering jobs are hard works. To me, engineering is nothing more than being a kuli i.e. cheap labour. Girls should never be engineers, no matter how tough a girl is, she can never stands on the same par with a male engineer. People see a female engineer as a weak engineer. Whoo, a big disadvantage here. I REGRET TAKING ENGINEERING COURSE, IRONICALLY IT WAS MY FIRST CHOICE.

Quote of the day:

You are the worst bitch because you are not as poisonous as others.

Ps: quoted by KF and applicable ONLY on me. It’s another saying that I’m a nice person. Hehe^^

I’m back to Bangi a.k.a the dead town again. I submitted my thesis last Monday. Everyone knows thesis is a determination work, whether one can grad or not. I proudly announce that, I CAN FINALLY GRAD NOW!!! 🙂 Allow me to show off

Going home

May 7, 2009 at 8:51 am (Uncategorized) (, )

Went back to Johor last Friday. The decision was made on the spur of moment. It was super jam on the highway, starting from bangi tol up to seremban tol.

I don’t understand why does the highway jam so much when there’s public holidays. Is it because of the management’s lack of efficiency or too many fast lane wannabe and block other cars?

Anyway, I took some pictures of the roads and trees and bridges while I was driving.

It was just some random shots. Since I have a camera and I can drive with one hand only, another hand is left unoccupied. So why not 😀

My mom and I attempted to make gwai ling kou but failed on first trial. My mom complaint to my sister that I was the culprit. So, she shoo-ed me out of her kitchen. She managed to make delicious gwai ling kou in the end, without my help. Ok, so I’m trouble of all troubles now 😦

Home is always the best. I was reluctant to come back to Bangi but I had to as I needed to meet my supervisor to finish up my thesis.

Everything is done now. I can submit my thesis next Monday. YAY! Will help my lecturer to do research. The research work will commence next week, for a duration of 2 months. I still consider myself jobless. I really hope I can get myself employed soon.

I love holidays but long holidays drag my life down the drain. I do nothing but eat, sleep and watch drama everyday making me feel that I’m useless. Eh, I am out of topic already.

It’s sad to come back to Bangi but it’s great that I’m going back to Johor this Friday again. Haha. When someone has got nothing to do, one will spend time travelling here and there. 😀
