Time flies and it's the final month of my industrial training. For the past weeks I had been real busy with my project, weekly report and interview session with the Mill Adviser (MA) and UTAR supervisor. Glory be to God, I was well prepared.
Interview session with the MA:
The MA read through my weekly report and asked questions on almost each station of the palm oil mill.
- What is the capacity of the mill?
- What is the capacity of weighbridge?
- What is the function of weighbridge?
- What is the capacity of loading ramp?
- What is the function of the wall on loading ramp?
- What is the capacity of each CPO storage tank? Is it sufficient?
- How long is the sterilization period?
- What is the sterilization cycle?
And many more questions……….. Thank God I was able to answer most of the questions and I received good comments from the MA. What a relief!! I was quite stress about the interview as I heard from the manager and the assistants that the MA always ask difficult questions.
After the interview session with the MA, I was quite confident for the next interview with UTAR supervisor which was on the next day.
Interview session with UTAR supervisor:
The interview session went really well. Basically the supervisor asked about my welfare here. How is this place? How are the people here? How the manager and staffs treat me? And so on…
How I answered him? Of course I'm doing very fine here. I feel so blessed to have come here for training. The manager, the assistants and the staffs all treat me very well. Besides that, I learn a lot here. I came here having zero knowledge on palm oil processing but now I know how the oil is extracted, what are the machineries involved, etc.. The only setback is the place is very quiet and very boring but so far I'm still surviving. Haha.
Btw, I'm going home for Christmas!!! KL ppl, c u guys on christmas !!!
God bless and SHAKELINGAM!!!™
- There are cows everywhere. No disrespect to them, I like their meat, but I don like their shits/cow dung. They poo everywhere and I have to use my skills to avoid running over it. Besides that, they move very slowly, always blocking the roads..
- Yes I do know that lizards are good. They eat all the insects in our house, but.... they also poo!! In fact, they poo everywhere, even on my bed.. Every time before I sleep I have to make sure my bed is free from lizards' poo. Otherwise, it's gonna get dirty.
- Ok monkeys, I don't mind if you all hanging around at my yard, but please don't touch my car!!! When I was back from work, my car was full of dirt and sands. On top of that, my front passenger's window visor is torn off. The monkeys were partying on my car, dirtying my car and tearing off the window visor but that's not all, they even pee-d on my car!!! Ish ish. Monkeys you better watch out.
- Driving here is dangerous, especially during night time. No street lights but thank God my car lights are bright enough. I saw some ppl riding bicycle and motor bikes which have no lights, alone!! Kudos to them cos I'll never do dat.. It's way too creepy.
- No internet access in my estate house. Nowadays I usually go on9 once or twice in a week, and it is 25km away from my estate house..
- No yum cha, no pool centre, no cinema, no bowling… Haih…
Things I like:
- RM2.20 for a plate of wan ton mee. RM3.00 for 1 roti canai, 1 roti planta, 1 nasi lemak and 1 teh tarik. There's no way I can find that in Subang.
Flexible working hour
- My working hour is from 7am to 5pm. It seems very long but I do have two break times, an hour for breakfast, an hour and a half for lunch. On top of that, I can break any time I want.
- This place is really relaxing. The people here are more laid back and less stressful.
- So far I have not encounter any traffic jam here.
- My boss, his assistants, the staffs and workers are nice ppl. They taught me a lot of things and they are quite generous. Especially my boss, his assistants and their friends.
- Glory to the Lord. Grateful that I found a nice church here, thanks to my youth pastor. I've met a lot of new friends here and they are very nice people.
So far the people I have met are all very kind, especially my manger and his assistants. They always treat me meals and even ask me out for CS gaming session or badminton. Haha.. On top of that, I have found a church here, thanks to the help of my church’s pastor. The nearest church here is 30 minutes away, located at Parit Buntar, Perak. It’s called Parit Buntar Chinese Methodist Church (PBCMC).
Basically i ran for an hour, and started walkin as my left knee and ankle are in pain.. I walked for an hour and the 3rd hour my calf muscles cramped and i had to walk and drag my legs for anothr 1 hour and 50 mins..
I used 3 hours and 50 minutes to finish 25km of ultra hilly roads.. No wonder they call it Newton Challenge, it's against gravity! Rested for the whole sunday before i get to continue my studies for my last paper of the year..
Although it was a bad timing, stil thank God that i finished it and managed to get a finisher T. And that is my last run of the year. This year has been a fantastic year with lots of running wit lots of frns.. But kinda regretted cos this year i dint train enuf.. Shall rest for a few months and continue running..
