I am just a typical guy, your average Joe kinda guy. Been there done that, but still stagnant. Attended one of the residential school in Ipoh (an all boys school.... you guys can sure guess which one) went on to KPP/ITM (duh... as it was known back then.. it was changed to PPP (Pusat Pemulihan Pelajar... btw KPP stands for Kolej Perosak Pelajar, but now known as INTEC - dont ask me what it stands for)
Went of to an island in Europe, in a town by the seaside (Famous landmark - Palace Pier - You should know the place :)
That was a brief resume of my travels in pursuit of higher education. What did I get out of it? Pretty much a screwed up life experience. But seriously, my travels made me who I am today. Really in my opinion Malaysian students with overseas studies opportunities stands out better than local Malaysian students (most of them anyway)
Why you say? the experience, the independence, the interaction, really is different. You're on your own dude. no spoon feeding. zilch (unless you have a too good too be true coursemate that feeds you everything - naaah highly unlikely) Some of you might disagree... prove me wrong
What am I doing now? I am in this company for nearly 13 years and this is only my second job. (God.. has it been that long?) I do interesting stuff, planning for technology advancement, get my hands dirty with things other people havent done before. but one thing really gets me puzzled. Heve anyone heard of NGN (Next Generation Network)? Why do people still call them NGN when they are already here, now? whats so next generation about it. I would rather call it the Now Generation Network and save the term Next Generation Network for something really is next generation.
Anyway, if anyone out there ever heard of Morse code? Thats what I do.....NOT!!!!! I let you guys whoever is reading this to ponder what I really do... or maybe I'll get round to tell more about it some fine day.
Before I sign off, let me tell you a joke that my eldest daughter (Lets call her AF1) told me the other day.
Do you know how Hang Tuah got the title Laksamana?
One day the Sultan sent out Hang Tuah to get him a bowl of Laksa, Hang Tuah searched high and low for the laksa, unfortunately there was none to be found. When Hang Tuah went back to the palace, the Sultan saw him and promptly asked in front of everyone, "Laksa mana Hang Tuah?"
Upon Hearing that all the Bendahara and menteri thought that the Sultan just gave him a new title... and he title stuck till today.
Hey, dont be angry if you dont find it funny, at least it got me smiling, especially coming from my AF1
