GTI me now...

God damn, it's almost end of 2011. And god damn how I've neglected blogging, again.

Well, at least I know what I want in 2012.

KL bits 7 - Holy crap on a cracker, I'm overweight!

Just got a new bathroom scale, and I'm currently 74kgs. With my 165cm height, my BMI is at 27.2 and that only means that I'm overweight. Need to get it down to 18-24 range. Maybe start with less bak kut teh?
Also want to start exercising more, was just speaking to TriStupe on getting myself started with an entry level bike. Let's hope I find one too. Maybe this?

Time to re-program my mp3 player with workout tunes.

KL bits - NYE 2011

It's great to be back!
4 sekawan among other usual suspects for countdown NYE 2011.

Fireworks from Blastmaster (thanks to an ex college mate back in the days, Krishna Moorthy & Co. handled the event).

p/s. pics poached from Eugene's collection of shots.

SA bits 57 - Rakan sekampung

My friend and ex-colleague, Terry. He came over from M'sia for a separate project.

"Nice to have someone to speak cantonese with" he says. " And dude you gained some weight, almost didn't recognise you!". I agreed with him on both statements immediately.
He stayed over last weekend, his workplace and apartment is about 30kms away from where I live. Distance is like traveling from PJ to Klang on the Federal Highway. Took him out to the usual few spots for food and sight seeing. He's probably going to venture more into other places in future, for example this weekend they plan to visit the Cradle of Mankind and Sun City. I'm sure they'll enjoy themselves in Sun City since it's a water park and summer's almost here :P

SA bits 56 - I've been neglecting this blog..

My apologies to my family whom I know would look forward to any news & postings here. I've been very busy at work hence nothing really interesting was happening which explains the lack of postings. But I'm taking this opportunity now to update this space.

What's been happening you might ask? Growing my own spring onions. Yes, it has been that dull..But it's really part of cost cutting :P I always never manage to finish the spring onions I buy until they expire in the fridge so I thought, what the hey, let's grow my own. These babies don't even need soil, amazing isn't it?

My spring onion farm

Speaking of cost cutting, the company (Motorola-Networks division) has recently announced a take over by NSN (Nokia Siemens). As we all know take overs are commonly followed by reductions. Reductions in workforce I mean. So there was our new boss speaking in a townhall meeting, assuring that this was a revenue related synergy instead of cost related synergy. Bla bla bla, no one can really assure us contractors of that in my opinion. So yea, days here are numbered.
Most of us have made plans to return to KL. That includes Suresh and Akash who will most probably be arriving in KL earlier than scheduled. Well, they have their own personal reasons. As for me, I have my personal reasons too. Unless of course they terminate my contract earlier than expected. Until then, tentative arrival date in KL is 28th January 2011. This would most probably be for good, I'll just have to see where the next wind blows and which direction. Or maybe I'll just park safely in KL. Never know...

With that in mind, the next few postings will be of my time spent here. All the "noinsense" that we've been up to :P.... I'm sure it will bring back much memories when revisited in the future, all my housemates, colleagues and friends.

SA bits 55 : Double trouble?

Look what I've got as a gift for my hospitality :P
Guna from NSTP (friend of Akash) bunked over at my place while waiting for his flight. He gave me this bottle as a token of appreciation. Not as smooth as JW Green Label though. Nevertheless, it was good stuff. Something to keep me warm during these winter nights :P ... and no, I'm not an alcoholic.

SA bits 54 : First time for everything

There's a first time for everything, and today I was told that I had committed a fireable offence :O
Somewhere along the line of work, tight project timelines and hectic scheduling, a process was not followed in terms of the company's purchasing policies and procedures. The guys in upper management are busy fixing it up and hopefully it will be rectified. Lesson learnt, and don't take policies lightly regardless of the amount of money involved.
