从来没想过，别人把的我过去看得那么 high profile。我只是普通的小市民，背后拖着很多故事，有令人遗憾的，有令人欣慰的，有令人开心，等等。不管怎样，我的双脚还是踩在这片黄金地的其中一条小路而已。What makes you today is the sum-up of your past decisions。什么的对的决定？什么是错的决定？这些答案在你努力寻找的当儿是很难发现的，只要你继续走下去，到了某个时候回头往后看，你会有所发现。
对我而言，做你当下想要做/该做的决定，选择，和事情，不要后悔。After all, today is the present that you can have for today。
I have learned that from my previous interview experience, most interviewer like to ask about your strength and weakness, why I should hire you...blablabla... and the most universal answer for engineering field is something to do 'solution provider', analytical and critical thinking laa... For people that never think about this answer, don't worry, it is inherent in you.
Everything, we think about should I wear this or that, eat this or that, spend money on this or that, spend a little or a lot and so on... this is the choices that we make every day. In engineering, when you say you are a solution provider, you simply put this thing into a more systematic manner, which excludes your personal emotion and preferences. In engineering, we do not say whether I like it or I don't like it, all based on data and experiment outcome, that's why people claims that engineer is very dull and boring. No doubt!
Currently is the fire fighting time. I do that for now and for the past 2 weeks, and no solution yet. Sometimes, it is very demotivating when things go against our favour. I have been busy like hell, yet I'm still need to write something here which take away the paid time, but I simply have to do it. Apart from fire fighting in workplace, the fire seems never go away from our daily life, too. You have issue A,B,C in week 1, issue C, D, A in week 2, and issue F, A, B in week 3. Old issue keep repeating while the new issues keep coming in, is this healthy in engineering and manufacturing line?
Here comes a nice quote my by boss "When problem occurs, not because of the theory is wrong, it is because we do not understand the whole thing well enough, or we missed something." Don't you think that this apply to our daily life as well? Ironically, many things in this world keep happening whether you like it or not, even you hate it. It is not just down to one person. Sadly, when a problem occurs, you have to solve it. When it burns, it turns into fire fighting.
A few questions to ponder. Is solution provider needed only when there is a fire? What is the requirements or criteria for a fire fighter? What is the flammable things in the line?
It is not good to get scolded in the early morning but I guess I don't have any excuses. Failure rate is 4/5, up to 80%. My condition is not good, according to my recent form.
Looks like I have to figure myself a way when the some of the things are out of balance, like my sleeping time and working time. Sleeping enough is crucial. When it is not, everything could go wrong, including the 80% failure rate. Sigh.
It's shower time, I waiting the washroom to be ready at 3.30pm.
Babysitting production parts is quite complicated because too many parts flowing at the same time, got other babies around, too. It is a good experience, and you can really have a hands on feeling when you are traveling around with the parts (Of course excluding washroom, makan and snaking laa...). You can see what is happening at some place that you've never been, you can help operators to do their job and being taught a lesson by them, and understand the process step from a baby to a 'flying baby'.
I like babies, kids, I wonder how would it be to babysit a real 'baby'.
It was my very first day of work yesterday, it was a normal working day. Had my breakfast on my desk, drink a cup of Nescafe to kick start my day, and it is very amazing that I did not get heavy head for the whole day.
I saw my boss for the 1st time since 2 weeks ago. He was off to sister plant in Thailand to settle some quality issue while I was traveling to Melbourne and Australia. Looks like his business trip is more meaningful than mine, but I've learned something during my breakaway trip, too.
I think I'll share something about my trip later on. Need to catch up my tasks, else I'm going to lose it.
