Open Houses and Work

Saya memang sudah lama tidak update pasal berita diri sendiri. Heeee..

It have been hectic few weeks, that's why.

On weekdays i was busy with office stuff. On weekends busy with open houses. i can't even have 'me' time. ('_')

Sekarang baru lapang sikit. Alhamdulillah.

Speaking of open houses, i attended so many. 5 invitations a day is too much for me to handle. i tried as much as i can to attend, tapi yang tak ter-attend tu mintak maaf sangat-sangat yea. InsyaAllah kalo korg buat lagi next year, saya akan datang. See, Malaysians are very generous. Tak kedekut buat makan-makan untuk menjamu kawan-kawan dan sedara-mara. i loike! But then, maybe we should spread the open houses, instead of everyone hold their open houses at the same time (in the month of Syawal), why not some of us do it in other months? We can still call it open house what? Hehe..

Anyway, here are some pictures of open houses. Tak dapat lah letak semua coz tak banyak bergambar. Banyak makan je. Huahua.

Bermaaf-maafan lah!

 Aren't they cute?
My little cousins - Balqis, Jiha and Adam.

These not-so-little cousins juga suka bermain bunga api!

Thanks for making me fat guys!

On a different note, work has been HECTIC! On top of doing technical geological works, i have to handle data reviews and do managerial works like drafting memos, letters, etc. Multitasking is not easy. You won't find me at my desk early morning til lunchtime. i'll be too busy running here and there (sometimes back and forth between Tower 1 and Tower 2), handling the data reviewer's endless (and sometimes IMPOSSIBLE) requests, chasing bosses for signature (to the point they'll sigh and say "Oh no.. It's you again!") on top of doing geological tasks. i feel bad because sometimes it seems like i neglect my technical works. How am i gonna improve my geological knowledge and capabilities if i'm too tied up with not-so-technical tasks? Tsk. Tsk.

Strangely, i LOVE this hectic work style. It keeps me motivated, keeps me going. i just wish i have endless energy that i won't feel like i'm running a marathon in the office!

Oh.. Oh!! This year i got the chance to lead two office Raya-related events: Deco Raya for my department and department's open house! Alhamdulillah, both event went well. We got 3rd place for Deco raya (compared to no placing at all last year!) and the bosses are very happy with the Raya open house (ahem.. Jangan tak tau, saya buat air bandung soda and beli 500 cucuk sate itu ohkay!). Through organizing these events, i learned how to be a leader, how not to lose it to a i'm-great-i-know-it-all guy, how to listen, when to speak up, and when to just shut the eff up and stop bothering. i learned that even the smallest events like these require a lot of sacrifices. i'm glad that in the end, everything's ok. Heeeeeee!

 My first ever ketupat, hasil ajaran Mariah!
My mama and grandmas are gonna be so proud if the know this.

 Behind the scene.

 We stayed back sampai kol 10pm ok. Balasan buat keje last minit!

Welcome welcome!

Elements of multiracial Malaysian, and rumah kampung are combined together.

Open house yay!
We had lemang, chicken rendang, nasi impit, lontong, laksa, and satay with various pot luck-ed foods!

 Makan!
 
 Klasik sangat kan?


p/s: super massive thanks to my friends merangkap committee member for both events. Tak lupa juga kepada pembawa potluck.. If you're reading this. :p

p/s: i think i gained weight. i don't really dare to get on the scale to confirm this but yeah, i think i'm a few inches thicker. But last weekend i put on a jeans that i bought seven years ago and it still fits perfectly. So now i'm confused. Did i gain weight or not?
