So far…

It’s Friday again!!! Working adults love Fridays, don” they? But I love every day of my life 🙂

The working hour at my workplace is 8 to 4 every Friday. That’s great as I can avoid all the traffic jams on my way back home. I have worked as Project engineer for 3 days now. So far so good.

#1 my cubicle

This is my table. The place where I almost fall asleep everyday when reading HTM 2022, my new-found ‘bible’ -.-

Got my safety shoes and helmet on the first day.

#2 my safety shoes. size 4-male grade is still too big for me -.-

#3 leng leng engineer

#4 the 'sleeping pill'

Receiving freebies feel good. But, the more freebies I get, the tighter my schedule gets. My boss gave me a few tasks on the first day I started working. I went to site, prepared project progress report and made a presentation within these 3 days. I also went through a series of induction and technical training. Being a new staff in my workplace, I didn’t expect to go through so much. But I am happy coz at least my time is not wasted in not learning. I also received new assignments, due next Tuesday and Thursday…edgy…

It has been raining for a few days now, so was this afternoon. Puddles of mud water were found everywhere I went when I visited the site.

I could hardly find any girls there. More than 97% of the workers there are men. Almost everyone is smoking. I have to walk faster with bigger paces, talk like a guy and stand like a guy. Everyone treats me nicely because I’m a girl, which is good also la…hehe

Being an engineer is not as scary as my friends described.

    true yes. very true. hehehe.

    it just reminds me of my experience on the rig here..The guys were commenting on the way i walk. They said i walk like a guy..because i walk in big paces and very fast. hahaha. i just have to, or else i’ll be left behind. 😛

      thank you because you understand how i feel 🙂
      yeah, if i walk slow, i’ll be left behind and the guys who are leading me will turn their heads back to see whether i got lost or left out. i don’t wanna get special attention because i’m a girl..huhu
