Last post. April 29th.
Wow really had been quite some time.
Been really, really busy. Not with studies. But busy enjoying myself. :)
Anyways, latest updates. I just got back from Labuan. Love hate relationship with Labuan FT. Boring (only one mall, food not that nice, food expensive, small, ntg to do, etc, etc) yet awesome (awesome people, cheap chocolates, cheap liquor, beach? maybe).
So I was there for my field exposure with Schlumberger. 1 week in Labuan. One of the best experiences I may say, getting an insight unto how and what the engineers and operators in SLB do. :)
First time wearing blue coveralls, all these while yellow (Petronas).
Welcome to Labuan. A small and humble island.
We flew there by AirAsia. And I went with another UTP friend (Iffwad) and a new found friend from UTM (Ravin). It's like 1Malaysia. LOL.
Accommodation - Engineers' house (Lazenda 3). I have to say it's awesome! Double storey house and I got the master bedroom, fully furnished with queen sized bed, wardrobe, air conditioned. :) Stayed with another Field Specialist(FS) and a Field Engineer Vacation Trainee(FEVT).
Bus comes at 7.30a.m. daily, work practically begins at 8a.m. and ends whenever you are done with your job. First two days I went back at 5p.m., third day at 7p.m., 4th day at 10p.m. and 5th day at 5p.m. :)
Heck, tiring but fun! We get to touch the tools and even clean and service them. Hard work but interesting. :)
At the main entrance of SLB. Together with Andry (FEVT) and Wilfred (Crew Chief)
With Andry and Wilfred again. This time in the dog house.
With Wilfred, Dexter, Ravin, Iffwad, Andry, and some unknown workers.
Oh by the way if you wonder where we are wearing different coloured safety helmets, this is because for those who are there to visit, they need to wear blue helmets. Green helmets - for those less than a year in terms of working experience, white helmets - more than a year.
With the tools.
This is with Mr Rutat. Our Field Service Manager (FSM). He's from Thailand.
Last day at the airport. Doing last minute shopping.
With Iffwad. Back KL using MAS.
I've learnt a lot, observed, and had so much fun in Labuan. Thanks to awesome people who constantly brought me out for lunch and dinner, and also for shopping.
Honestly, in the beginning I really wanted to come back asap, but after 2 days later, I actually hoped that my field exposure would be longer. Haha. :)
Thanks to those who gave me advices in life. Especially Rutat, Welter, Wilfred, Baby, Phil, Ning.
Thanks to those who brought me out. Ning, Tiong, Clarence, Phil.
Hope to see you guys again in Labuan :)
