Internship Week #4 — Let's Move On

Hi, guys. It's good to get down here again and write up something for my Internship’s weekly update. For the first 2 days, I just sit in the office doing some small task. My supervisor doesn't give any work as he always says “Relax, don’t rush. When time is coming then you will know”.

Yes, he’s right. Start on Wednesday I was asked to go to QA/QC Department and meet with Mr. Fong. There he explains to me if I am interested to follow him do some QA/QC training and specifically he says will let me learn how to do a die-paint test for welding inspection purpose.

Actually, I only got 3 days for this job starting Wednesday till Saturday because Mr. Tan need to prepare a full report for project cost and should submit it by Saturday, so he let me do other work for a while.

But sadly to tell since I got a problem to get safety application — safety application is critically compulsory when you enter the manufacturing side — I ask to follow Mr. Wong Chong Meng, a Project Manager just li…

Pembangkang Pasca PRU-13 Perlukan Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah

Malaysia perlukan pembangkang yang mampu berperanan dan berfungsi dengan baik. Hal demikian hanya dengan berlakunya fenomena ini barulah kita boleh mendabik dada bahawa Negara ini praktis demokrasi tulen. Tabiat kini para pengundi dalam kalangan warga Malaysia – kerana saya kira ada ramai juga pengundi untuk PRU13 nanti bukan asalan warga Malaysia tetapi jauh nun di Asia Tengah – kalau di pihak Barisan Nasional berkempen seolah-olah Pakatan Rakyat tidak perlu wujud lansung dalam sistem pentadbiran Malaysia.

Begitu juga perangai ramai penyokong Pakatan Rakyat yang turut melahirkan perasaaan sebegini seolah-olah biarlah BN itu hancur terus.

Hal ini tidak betul. Ia amat tidak sihat. Saya dambakan PR mengambil alih Putrajaya selepas PRU13 akan tetapi saya begitu berharap BN juga akan menjadi begitu kuat semasa pemerintahan Negara ini di bawah kelolaan PR. Kuat di sini bermaksud BN mampu berfungsi sebagai sebuah pembangkang yang baik dan effektif kepada system semak dan imbang untuk setiap…

Internship Week #3 — Trainee or Permanent Staff?

Hi everyone this could be my very short update for throughout this week’s experience working at Ikatan Engineering Sdn Bhd. Oh, sorry, I’m here not for working purpose, but as a trainee.

Do you understand what trainee means is for?

So I was trained with a bundle of jobs to finish in a short period. By continuing last week’s unfinished job to calculate the total tonnage of metal structure for palm-oil factory in Johor, my supervisor asks me to do the calculation for each drawing set including Refining & Dry Fractionationbuilding, Boiler House, Chemical Store and Pipe.

It’s a lot. The calculation needs to finish in short time because IE want the cost estimation for tender bid purpose. The most suitable cost being proposed by any companies for this project will raise their opportunities to get the contract. Simple is it?

Sometimes I feel like I am not a trainee, but a permanent worker there. Sound interesting indeed, but believe me being a worker is the real boring thing you ever do …

Internship Week #2 — Work Attitude Please!

Hi everyone, it’s good to meet you guys again for my Internship weekly update. As I mentioned last week, this week will go to busy with some new project. And of course it comes with sort of drawing!

Start from Monday until Wednesday, Mr. Tan asks me to sort out everything about the drawing start from managing to print out all the drawing at Design Department, make a checklist to ensure all drawing element is completely print out as given in Tender Document.

Just to mention here, for this time Ikatan Engineering Sdn Bhd gets a project to build a palm oil factory at Tanjung Langsat, Johor. It’s a new project and what make me shock is the drawing set that I need to manage is almost 250 pages per drawing set!

Gosh, it’s too much. I had to manage for 3 sets of main drawing and some more add-on drawing.

Look so naïve, it is my first time ever to see and go through the details of the complete drawing to build a complete oil-palm factory. It does include drawing for refining & dry fractio…

Internship Week #1 — Mechanical or Civil?

Alhamdulillah I was successfully reported as trainee at Ikatan Engineering Sdn Bhd start July 2, 2012. It’s a big day for me for doing something new and goes to a new place and the environment.

To say I was inexperienced working at big company and do some work on factory side, it’s a lie because before this I already have a training at industrial site last year almost 3 months at DK Composites Sdn Bhd in order to fabricate our car body for Shell Eco-marathon 2011.

Also, for this year we manage to complete the car body modification processes at the same factory too.

However, to write my feeling during the first day of my internship is quite opposite compared to what am I doing at DK Composites.

Here we go, as I reported as a trainee to Human Resources Department my blood shrunk after introduced to each staff at the management office, also head of each department and introduced to my supervisor here.

Nervous?

For sure!

As I said, it totally differ to what I am facing during working at D…

Mesir: Penularan Kesenjangan Ijtihad Kotemporari dan Tradisi?

Membicarakan topic kebangkitan rakyat Mesir menggulingkan rejim Mubarak yang sudah berada dalam lipatan sejarah sejak setahun lalu seolah memperlihatkan tiada titik noktah. Kini perbicangan-perbincangan ini bersambung pula dengan kisah pilihan raya Mesir yang mungkin sesuai disebut sebagai pilihan raya pertama dalam usia Mesir wujud di muka bumi ini yang benar-benar merasai roh demokrasi awal tahun 2012.

Sejaran hebat ini tercipta bukan sekadar bersandar pada model tipikal – mungkin hasil propaganda media – bahawa kebangkitan ini adalah ketidakupayaan rakyat Mesir menerima kezaliman berterusan rejim Mubarak tetapi jauh mengatasi dari skeptical itu.

Menjadi semakin menarik hal ini apabila perbincangan mengenainya turut melibatkan factor dan pengaruh hasil kebangkitan marhean di Negara Uncle Sam, Occupy Wall Street dan beberapa kebangkitan lain yang berlaku di seluruh dunia dalam sekitar tempoh 3 tahun ini.

Antara mesej besar dalam pelaksanaan Maqasid Syariah adalah menegakkan keadilan …
