Alone in Germany

Here I am, sitting in the hotel room, with a cold 8 degree Celsius, windy and the sky gloomy. The weatherman said it's gonna rain today.

Gloomy sky

Ahh....wouldn't it be nice to be with Mami and Yiyi now. Mami by my side, sitting on our swimg in the garden, watching Yiyi running around, yelling in delight "Papi Mami! Watch me! Watch me!!".

Oh well...another 3 weeks to go....


So what am I doing here in Germany, you asked?
I am on an work assignment here in Mulheim, Germany. The company that I worked with is in partnership with a German company, based in Berlin. For the project I am working on, I have to be here in Mulheim for some system testings.

You're alone, too?

The weather here is crazy. April's weather, they say. You can get sun, rain, and snow all in 1 day. And it's bloody cold, especially when the wind is blowing. So how nice, if I am back home with Mami and Yiyi, having teh panas and banana leaf rice with kari ayam and dhal, some vege on the side, fried fish ....mmmhh....

3 more weeks....3 more weeks.........

Work Work Work

It's my 5th working day today and I am doing pretty good. Adapting to the working life here.

The environment here is friendly. However, everyone's just super busy since they have got a few projects going on. I have yet to do any serious work, mainly because the project I am supposed to help out is already in advanced stage. So I guess it's difficult for my boss to slot me in. But every now and then, he would asked my opinion and experience on how things were done in my previous taking of projects. But one thing I dislike about the new company is it's location. It's twice as far as my previous company. Just yesterday, it took me almost an hour to reach home. Not to mention the toll I have to pay. But I guess I just have to adapt lor.

So what am I doing now? Reading manuals and blogs. LOL! Nothing to do mah, mah read blogs lor. But mostly technical blogs on Linux lar. Coz I'll be working with Linux a lot.

Just got a call yesterday from an ex-colleague of mine, asking for some info. So I asked him how he's doing.

"We got a pay cut", he said sadly.

"What?!". I was quite shock really. "When?"

"Just after you left".

Wow! Talk about timing. I was lucky to bail early. If not, that would really affect my package during negotiation.

Got to get back to reading blogs work. Ta-ta!

Papi : Nothing lor, reading blogs hehehe....

Mami : Which way you go?

Papi : Highway lor. First day mah, must be punctual lor.

Mami : So what time you reach there?

Papi : Very early, 8am I reach already kekeke...

Mami : So early ah?! How much toll?

Papi : About RM4 something leh..expensive.

So what did we do during the 2 weeks break? Lots!! We went to Penang, Sitiawan, Ipoh, Kampung Kuantan in K.Selangor to see kelip kelip. And we went swimming almost everyday!
Will post about those trips later. :)

Under the weather

Hou Yeet ah! Hou Kan Yu Yeet ah!!
So blardy hot today!!

It was raining cats and dogs just few days ago, which flooded Shah Alam and some other areas, and now it's so freaking hot!

And Yiyi fell sick again. It must be the fourth time this year. Ever since she started pre-school, she got sick quite often. Probably lots of germs in her kindy. Her classmates are the same as well. Every week, she'll come back and tell us that her friends got sick and didn't come to school.

Everytime she got fever, we got extra worried. I have a history of very high-fever. So we are worried she inherited that from me. The highest for her was 42 deg C. In the middle of the night.

But she got better this morning, and she's eager to get to school. She even went to school when she got the fever last week. Despite us telling her not to go, she 'insisted' she wanted to go. Luckily, the teacher told her she couldn't come even if it's just a lil' bit feverish.

So now she listen to everything the teacher says.
