of vietnam?

i've been up and down and up and down...
work have been so attached to me... ( yup.. bukan saye yg attached to work...)

been facing numerous kind of people from all over the countries...(bukan pi berjalan pun, tapi kat office tuu, macam2 jenis orang from all over the world ada...and of course, different country, different accent..)

been bluffing everyone (client and safety engineers) with my own theory and to make sense!? (wow, didn't know i can make up a theory that make sense to everyone...kalau salah, pandai2 laaaa...huhuhu)

working as an architect for offshore living quarters, my design normally will based on the previous living quarters,(bukan susah sangat pun..tak payah nak pikir pasal concept.. hahaha) but the challenge is, when the footprint differs from the previous living quarters, there goes the design solving finding solutions with limited space and of course facing the client and the safety engineers from client's side!... (memang sangat laaa stress bila berdepan dengan safety engineers and clients yang sangat cerewet... itu tak boleh, ini tak boleh... tah ape2...bagi simple design vanity basin, tetiba nak stainless steel countertop basin.. dulu kata nak simple jer.. tak mau pakai stainless steel.. hadoiiii...)

the safety team said, there are different kind of fire protection walls when it comes to offshore well head platform...sebab kat well head platform ni laa kerja-kerja oil drilling been made...(oh yer, i'm the lead for this wellhead platform living quarters...and the burden is on me! everything pun kena amik tahuuu..)

to prevent from any explosion, certain rating of firewalls need to apply to the living quarters..
(actually, living quarters tu manning for 3 months jer every year,...tapi drilling work is risky and explosion may happen.. tu pasal laaa nak determine fire rating tu lambat sangat.. asik berubah2 jer...maybe the safety engineer tak confident kot..hahah )

once design is confirmed, there goes the report writing, material take off, weight report and all the calculations that i have to do...(saye tak suka calculation ok!!)

everytime issued all the documents, ada saja yang nak change itu ini... ( heyyy korang tau takk, if you want to change the specifications, the drawings yang dah almost 80% ready tu pun kena tukar okay!!.. ishhhhhhhh....)

so yeahhhhhhh... sampai bila nak abis???

project manager pulak, every day will call me up asking about the progress, and the expected date to issued all the reports...(woahhhhhhh stress okay, i've been telling the same thing, yet still call and ask...)

and yang paling best ayat power project manager "dalila, we have to make everything done by end of november... no matter what, end of november" berulang2 kali sampai rase, when he started to say that, nak jer ikut miming his words.. hahaha

yesterday, 1 report is done..hopefully no is another report that has to be issued by at least end of next week!!.. and every time nak issue report, i have to make sure that client satisfied with it, and to ensure the client satisfied, there goes the never ending discussion and meetings...( diorang ingat saye robot ke? ade button yg boleh pi discussion and do the reports at the same time and finish it by end of the week? discussion will at least takes about 2 hours... then nak compile everything, make sure drawings pun having the same info, then nak calculate lagi...then nak jawab phone and queries from project manager laa, mechanical laa electrical la... aduhhhhhhhhh how can i do my work smoothly kan?)

but anyway, with the stress, the burden and the time, i felt relief when yesterday the client being a bit nicer than before... he said "i'll get approval from your boss to bring you to vietnam to see how they fabricate the Living Quarters that u designed..." wahhhhhhhhhhh... relief laa tapi tak put too much hope laaa.. heheh...oh yerrr... why vietnam??..well because this project is for the vietnam's petro oil... and they fabricate the Living quarters in vietnam... will deliver to vietnam sea most probably by end of next year...weeeeeeeeeee

and another thing that made me smile...(again, not putting to much hope laa....) when my boss called me into his office, and said.. " i have discussed with the hr and they will increased your salary... we dont want you to go... we will make you stay.." okayyy saye rase he made this decision just because, suhana my colleague nak leave the company!!!.. and pandai plakk boss nak kononyer pujuk laa when at the end of the conversation tu, dia cakap... "i know, you've been doing so much work and you deserved better salary...they said they will prepare the letter next week"..... cehhhhhhhhhhhhhs.. baru tau ker saye buat keje banyak and his work pun saye yang kena buat?? hadoiiiiiiiiiiiiii... but alhamdulillah if it happens.. hehe

oh... although i have been so tired attending to the workload, i still have time sms-ing mr.h...(no dating2 session okay... nanti kena sembelih.. or maybe kena pakse minum racun as what mr.h said..hahaha... so sms-ing is enough for now although mr.h is in KL... pathetic tak?)

mr.h told me that he managed to prove to his boss and he is now lead a project for vietnam resort...VIETNAM jugak!!! lain office, lain project but its VIETNAM.. ada ape dengan VIETNAM???... hahaha..tapi project mr.h is onshore.. atas darat, mine is offshore.. atas laut...(ehh tetiba terkeluar tajuk..haha)

moral of the story... maybe no one notice that you worked so hard... but Allah s.w.t noticed and HE know the best for each of his servant...

p/s : going to miss my best colleague suhana... she's pursuing his career in other oil and gas company as an offshore architect.. all the best! lets kick something before your last day okay!

till next time!... :)

inshaAllah... we'll find the way...

Everytime you feel like you cannot go on
You feel so lost
That your so alone
All you see is night
And darkness all around
You feel so helpless
You can’t see which way to go
Don’t despair and never loose hope
Cause Allah is always by your side

Insha Allah
Insya Allah you’ll find your way

Everytime you can make one more mistake
You feel you can’t repent
And that its way too late
Your’re so confused, wrong decisions you have made
Haunt your mind and your heart is full of shame

Don’t despair and never loose hope
Cause Allah is always by your side
Insha Allah
Insya Allah you’ll find your way
Insha Allah
Insya Allah you’ll find your way

Turn to Allah
He’s never far away
Put your trust in Him
Raise your hands and pray
OOO Ya Allah
Guide my steps don’t let me go astray
You’re the only one that showed me the way,
Showed me the way
Insha Allah
Insya Allah we’ll find the way

the way it is...

I can read your mind and I know your story
I see what you're going through
It's an uphill climb, and I'm feeling sorry
But I know it will come to you

Don't surrender 'cause you can win
In this thing called love

When you want it the most there's no easy way out
When you're ready to go and your heart's left in doubt
Don't give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that's the way it is

When you question me for a simple answer
I don't know what to say, no
But it's plain to see, if you stick together
You're gonna find a way, yeah

When life is empty with no tomorrow
And loneliness starts to call
Baby, don't worry, forget your sorrow
'Cause love's gonna conquer it all, all

of emails

hari ni sangat busy kat office...

okay, ni nak cerita from the beginning... last week, i got an email from electrical engineer...tak payah laa sebut nama yer...

he wrote :

"Hi Dalila, can i have architectural layout plan for me to incorporate with our electrical equipment layout?"

i replied

"hi, please find attached are the latest updated architectural layout as per requested"

then, yesterday the electrical engineer email lagi, this time he needs clarification on the modelling of the living quarters that i designed, he emailed to me and project manager and he cc'd to other disciplines..

then the project manager replied to him to clarify (since pm dah reply, saye senyap jer laa..hehe) and project manager cc'd to this mr.s...(oh yer, other disciplines ni tak berani nak email and cc directly to mr.s they said he wont give answers easily....he will ask, why and why not use this and that yadda yadda.... hahaha....sometimes, small things become bigger... keje jadi lambat...)

suddenly today i got this email from mr.s...

he wrote:

"FYI. Please inform me what you are communicating with other disciplines, these emails can quite easily be forwarded on to the Client!!"

woahhhhhh agak sakit hati ini bila bace email macam tu pagi-pagi, nak pi buat air nescafe pun tak jadi.. rase mahu pi bilik dia and campak semua drawing kat dia... (okay kalau dreaming benda-benda macam tuu memang selalu laa.. tak payah nk tunggu dapat email dari mr.s pun... hahaha)

whats the problem if the clients know? at least the client knows we are communicating with everybody to get the job done... kan? cehhh..tu pun nak kecoh.. arghhhhhhhhhh

As advised by my senior.. she said.. "reply kat mr.s.. 'noted'......" and yes... i did.. huhuhu...

then my senior said... lepas ni, if anyone from other discipline email and asking this and that... forward je kat mr.s and said...."FYA"... lantak la sana, biar dia jawab email semua...kalau dia tak tau, pandai-pandai laa dia datang tanya... hahahaha

missing him

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world,
I think of the arrivals gate at KLIA Airport?? (hehe).

General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed,
but I don't see that.

It seems to me that love is everywhere.

Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy,
but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.

When the planes hit the twin towers,
as far as I know
none of the phone calls from the people on board
were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love.

And if you look for it,
I've got a sneaking suspicion that love actually is all around.

~ Love Actually~

First week of working in year 2010…
The GBS (global business system) officially activated…
Starting from this week, everything is ONLINE…

Nak request for annual leave, nak buat medical claim or any other claims, semua ONLINE… approval from boss juga ONLINE…

yup!! Paperless!!! Love the environment people!!!…
how cool is that?? Haha..

BUT, somehow, because of this ONLINE technologies, people nowadays lack of verbal communication..

Everything is written ONLINE and you can read all the words using your own intonation and your understanding… and there comes the misunderstanding...

Aiseymannn.. not cool anymore... hahaha..

Moral of the story... balance everything... do ONLINE and do verbal communication too!!! (tanda seru ini menunjukkan nada excited... ala2 cikgu tadika excitedly announce... "time for break!!! Let’s eat!!!")

p/s: mixed feelings hence the crap...
