Internship Week #8 — Mood Raya On

Hi, guys. First and foremost, I would like to wish Happy Eid Fitri Al-Mubarak to all readers. How’s your Raya?

I could call this week for the saddest week ever after I have to come back to the office on the 5th of Raya. It’s not great at all. And it also was being my shortest Raya ever.

For the remaining three days, I have just completed all the calculation data for the surface area of Channel ports, Fabricating Beams (FB) and all angle parts. By Saturday, Mr. Wong asks me all the calculation data for tonnage so I print out the entire table and gave it to him.

He said will check it first then tell me if there is any misplaced data.

I hope there’s nothing wrong because he just gave to me another bucket of drawing to do the same thing. Only the difference is the project of that drawing is already complete and he asks me to re-check the total weight for each part on the drawing set for the bill of Purchasing Order (PO) purposing.

I guess I would start this job next Monday. Mr. Wong alway…

Syawal Manusiawi

Kembalinya saya ke kampung halaman untuk menyambut Eid’fitri bersama keluarga di Kerteh minggu lepas banyak menggamit perasaan dan emosi. Orang-orang kampung masih begitu. Mereka jauh dari cakap-cakap politik yang berat dan bersifat teknikal.

Berbual dengan rakan-rakan ayah semasa menziarahi mereka sempena Eid’fitri lebih berkisar soal peribadi, kerjaya dan sedikit-sebanyak tentang pembelajaran di universiti. Saya tiada ramai rakan sebaya di kampung, mungkin kerana sejak kecil lagi sudah bersekolah jauh dari kampung dan tinggal di asrama. Jadi tidak lah janggal jika saya pulang ke kampung dan sedar bahawa tiada teman sekampung yang benar-benar rapat melainkan anak-anak rakan usrah ayah saya.

Saya merasai pengalaman hidup di kampung dan juga di bandar. Jadi untuk konteks umur saya yang baru mencecah 20-an ini saya tahu apa pahitnya hidup sebagai “country boy” dan juga apa kelatnya hidup sebagai “urban boy”. Mungkin di kampung saya – saya cuma mengandaikan sahaja – Facebook dan Twitter …

Salam Eid’Fitri 1433H

Salam Eid’Fitri 1433H dari saya buat seluruh rakan pembaca laman blog yang usang ini. Moga kita berjaya menjadi golongan yang berhak meraikan kegembiraan ini di mata Tuhan yang Esa. Dengan serendah diri saya memohon kemaafan atas segala khilaf yang berlaku sepanjang kalian menjengah laman ini.

Mari kita sama-sama berdoa agar diberi peluang sekali lagi untuk bertemu pada Ramadan 1434H bagi menebus segala kesilapan yang kita lakukan sepanjang Ramadan yang lepas.

Ya ALLAH kau terimakanlah segala amalan kami sepanjang bulan Ramadan yang lepas. Sungguh kami tiada hak untuk mendabik yang kami berhak merayakan Eid’fitri pada hari ini.

Saudaramu,
Ahmad Tajuddin Abdullah

Internship Week #7 — A Technical Awkward

Hi, guys. Thanks for dropping by and continuing to read my note about the internship at Ikatan Engineering Sdn Bhd. May it will be my quick update for this week.

Yeah, you know this week is the last week of Ramadan. Also, be my last week working during fasting I guess. I am not even writing before my experience fasting during working at the office so I think for this note I should shout some here.

I tweet before on Twitter on the 1st week of Ramadan. Just for record in the office only have 2 Muslims there and that’s meant only both of us fasting. Others are non-Muslim.

They as usual recognized us as we are fasting during Ramadan. They show their respect by not eating and drinking in front of us even I am not bothered whether they want to eat or drinking in front of me at all.

Yeah by the way I respect their honor. That’s we call as tolerance between us. It’s a beautiful thought.

To fasting during working, — in the true means of the essence of Ramadan – is not an easy job. Maybe I mana…

Refleksi 10 Malam Terakhir Ramadan

Meniti jalur masa di laman mikro Twitter pada fasa penghabisan Ramadan menemukan saya dengan puluhan kata-kata peringatan tentang manfaat 10 malam terakhir Ramadan dan ruginya mereka yang tidak tahu menghargai masa-masa begini.

Namun satu frasa yang tersemat terus biarpun laju jalur masa itu memberi ingatan kepada kita ialah Ramadan itu hanya untuk mereka yang berusaha dan mencari dengan penuh keikhlasan.

Menulis soal ini bukan mudah. Seolah ianya memberi gambaran betapa saya yang menulis ini begitu hebat melayan Ramadan selama ini.

Tidak. Saya cuma menulis untuk ‘refresh’ setelah 20 hari Ramadan berlalu. Berani saya katakan betapa rakan-rakan pembaca jauh lebih hebat mencari makna Ramadan berbanding saya. Moga-moga segala kebaikan dan kesalahan yang kita buat sepanjang Ramadan ini menjadi pintu kepada turunnya petunjuk dan keampunan Tuhan yang Esa kepada kita.

Insya ALLAH. Kita perlu optimis. Biarpun kita sedar sudah berkali kita tersadung dek dosa dan kesilapan sepanjang 20 hari yan…

Monarki Tidak Berakhlak Wajib Disanggah

Terbaru pendedahan sebuah blog mengenai tingkah laku putera raja di sebuah negeri yang bernama Selangor bukanlah yang pertama dan terakhir malah itulah warisan berita generasi demi generasi mereka selama berada di tampuk kerusi monarki.

Banyak sudah sebelum ini dilaporkan malah sudah ada si pelapor disumbat dalam tahanan reman kerana mendedahkan tingkah laku yang amat “berakhlak mulia” dalam kalangan mereka yang bakal memimpin jutaan rakyat Malaysia dan paling menguja kan bakal mendapat gelaran Ketua Agama Islam negeri secara automatik.

Saya tidak dapat membayangkan apabila anak-anak raja yang berakhlak mulia begini tiba masa mereka untuk menaiki takhta kelak, apakah rakyat akan membiarkan mereka dipimpin oleh kaki perempuan, kaki botol, kaki kelab malam, kaki judi dan lain-lain amalan mulia ini dengan rela hati dan penuh taat?

Mandul betul rakyat sebegitu!

Saya ulangi, tidak pernah terdetik dalam hati ini untuk menafikan tentang keupayaan dan fungsi serta kedaulatan Institusi Raja M…

Internship Week #6 — Thanks Mr. Rashidi

Hi, guys. What's going on?

This week is totally differed compared to previous weeks. I got a lot of jobs. I got an instruction to do this and that. I manage to calculate most of the main metal structure for TNB 1000MW Manjung Coal Fired Power Plant— I mention about this in the previous note.

It’s not a small project. It’s only because I got a chance to do work with Mr. Wong, General Manager of IE. Work with him throughout the week; yes, I am happy, but it gives tremendous pressure on my shoulder.

For the first time, I got a chance to have met with “big guys” of IE like Mr. Wong and Mr.Liang, someone in Production Department. They are questioning my calculation data for every sheet of drawing and ask me to prove it how I manage to get that particular values.

Yes, again, I just think maybe this is the step should be facing before a Mechanical Engineering Degree holder can be recognized as an engineer!

Till Saturday, I still play with these drawings. After all, the total tonnage for …

Internship Week #5 — When The Responsibility Comes

Hi, guys, this could be my super-fast update. Today I need to go to #UndiMsiaChats at Pusat Rakyat LB. So I am on leave for today – with full permission from my supervisor.

Back to the topic, this week is not gonna love me so much. It's sound legit yeah?

Throughout the week, I need do re-calculation for all parts done by last week. It was a usual procedure here to do a double-check for each calculation we have made. If for the last week’s job I made a calculation by referring to Assembly Drawing, to do re-calculation process I need to look at Details Drawing.

Just to mention here, Details Drawing for this project got 131 sets of drawing. Much enough?

By Monday, I finish all the 1st round of calculation process and this enough to make me take-off from office for tomorrow morning. Then the 2nd round of calculation being started on Wednesday and I manage to finish it up exactly on Friday at 5:25 PM.

The job scope still seem like last week, but for this time its much burden me as well…
