October 2008 Blues

For some odd reason, my Streamyx internet connection is really-really slow. I have no idea why and I don’t think I want to know. I have alternative internet connection I can use but I only use that if it is really necessary. There are 2 applications I use when I want to write something on my blog. One is my Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 and the other is my Google Picasa photo manager. If I don’t fire up these two applications, there will be no new blog post. It’s just so easy to get distracted nowadays with so many stuff you can do online.

The other thing is, my office has blocked me from even accessing my own blog. Of course for those Blogspot blog owners share the same fate as I am as well. I guess the boss doesn’t want his staff to be blogging at work or maybe because accessing blogs is consuming too much internet bandwitdh that it caused a clog in the internet access at my office. Either way, I’ve already bought myself another new internet connection for me. It’s just that I now need to perform on something to perform own ($$$).

Job wise, one of my first task when I entered my current company was to help produce a proposal to win a project at a local university. I’m just so happy that after the hard work of preparing all those documents, we finally have been awarded the contract. My job for that one is done and now I need to move on to acquire other accounts to sustain the company’s operation or else those new and existing colleague of mine would be out of jobs.

I’ll be updating my blog with my latest gadget that I’ve been fiddling around. I’m also experimenting something that I’ve been always wanted to have which I finally got my hand to recently. It’s just so much fun getting stuff that you’ve always wanted.

Selamat Hari Raya 2008

It’s Hari Raya 2008 today. It is also raining outside of my bedroom window. Oh well, this year I only got 2 physical Hari Raya cards. 3 or 4 years ago, I can get almost 10 – 15 physical Hari Raya cards. It seems like people are now resorting to just using SMS. I’ve already got almost 10 Hari Raya SMS wishes and I think by the first day of Hari Raya ends, I’ll get a couple of more SMSes. I haven’t send any replies nor send out Hari Raya SMSes simply because I’m waiting for the time where I’ll get off my laptop and get bored while waiting to get home later on, then I’ll start SMSing.

Similar to last year Hari Raya, I still went to work eventhough there were only 6 people left at my office. I was the only person who had worked on the day before Hari Raya last year and repeating it again this year. The others are all the personnel who joined the company after me. I didn’t do much work at the office since a lot of people had already started their holiday. Luckily the boss gave a half day leave so guess what, I saved one day of my annual leave yesterday. Of course I had to take a leave on Friday so that I can enjoy a 5 days of Hari Raya holiday.

Anyway, here’s my Hari Raya digital card for this year’s Hari Raya 2008 to all my blog readers:
