after a loooong hiatus

sorry for the mia. i guess since working i dont really have the time to sit and write. i chose hanging out over blogging. hmm. guess im too old to babble nonsense anyway. but i have regretted that we ( me and my bf) have shared wonderful memories but weren't able to share and record in this blog. but never mind later i'll put up pictures from my 1 year old phone (yes. i bought a new phone just to reward myself on graduation), to give you flash of memories that were not able to be updated.

hokayhhh. update time. when was my last time here? hmm.

I was working as an intern at Emery Oleochemicals for 3 months as trainee engineer which was an awesome experience and i got to get my hands dirty and working on big machines (its like an achievement for me sorry for the geek-y) and I wanted to continue there but unfortunately they dont hire fresh grads. So my previous manager asked me to work around first and gain experiences. And he gave me a reference letter for me to bring around my interviews and that letter was one of the reasons I landed my first ever engineering career. I'm thankful for that.

So, here I am. Almost completed my 1 year with Celestica with an SQE position. I actually applied for Process Engineer but I was called back for the SQE vacancy. At first I was like what the hell is SQE? What so hard about taking care of supplier's quality? But it was like a smack in the face. Its like the busiest position in Celestica. Haha. No, really. I'm serious. I dropped down to 2 sizes for pants. Jalan-jalan sikit kena tarik seluar naik. haha.

Buuuuuuttttttt, I had a long talk with manager last month, I was thinking of switching my career to something more technical, instead of fire fighting in the production. My wish has been granted. Though I am still in the quality field, I now sit in the Incoming quality as an FAI Engineer. Which to my amazement (is sooo much harder than being an SQE). An FAI Engineer responsibility is to inspect and study the first material, meaning the person will provide his/her approval for the material to be used in production. If anything goes bad, the root cause and questions will always be pointed to the FAI Engineer. Instead of working in 1 project in a team as SQE, I am now managing 8 projects and whats worse is I am the only FAI Engineer around. I'm not giving up yet, but I can already feel the stress and starting to doubt my ability. If I work too fast, I might miss some important points, If I work too slow, production line will have to hold. I'm still finding my momentum to get into that medium speed. InshaAllah everything will run smoothly.I just hope I'm not disappointing anyone. Fuhh. Pray for meeeeee.... :)

ooh, here's a photo of me and boyfie on my graduation day :)
