Just a short article about my life up until now. Maybe just to serve as a status report to remind me of what I’m going through these few months because I feel I’m at a pretty important stage of my life.

I hope this will help me reflect my feelings, thoughts and aspirations and also help me put things into perspective. Also to put some of my plans in writing, and some crap to help me laugh at myself after I read this crap again in a year’s time.

I’m 24 years of age and almost a third of my sane life has passed. It’s a time where people start to make decisions that will alter their life, pave the road they tread and walk through the doors that are opened for them. It’s the prime age where males and females start to think of making money, reproducing and experiencing life (not necessarily in that order).

So far, I’m in my 4th year of my studies in my 7th semester on my pursuit of graduating with not only some engineering stuff in my head, but a qualification to prove that I actually have said stuff in my head. This semester is however a practical semester where I have to work as cheap labour in some company (Nokia if you don’t already know where I’m working, refer to past entries) in the hope that I gain some experience.

It’s been a pretty eye-opening, jaw-dropping and mind-boggling (and other body part actions) experience. So I’m pretty much stuck at this company for the time being and most likely in the near future. Well, I’m quite sure I’ll be working there part-time after this semester since it pays good money, doing my thesis (Diplomarbeit) there since my manager asked me to stay before I get offers from someplace else. That’ll be until I graduate. Where it goes from there, I’ll decide when the time comes.

I’ve been meeting a few people and experiencing some workplace politics and working life these few weeks as well. I met some managers from a couple of Asian companies and managed to get to know them quite well. It seems Malaysians with European experience are pretty sought after. Sure glad that I didn’t doze off in English class, able to speak Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, Malay, and German. I’m actually giving some thought in working nearer to home in my early career if working in Germany/Europe didn’t work out. However, I don’t see myself working for someone all my life though.

I’m not one to speak much about relationships but it’s been pretty smooth sailing. It’s nice to have a few close friends rather than a lot of acquaintances. I’m not a person who is good in maintaining contacts such as sending messages out of the blue, remembering birthdays and stuff, but when we spend time together, I try to make it count.

On the romantic side of things, I can only say that I wuv my Larling, and I mish her so very much every time we are apart. I’m so grateful that I have someone to share my dreams, hopes and aspirations, someone to lift me up when I’m sad and someone to trust in.

On the spiritual side of things, I’m still a freethinker who thinks that God exists and religion is crap.

On the topic of money, I’m currently financially stable, able to survive comfortably with what I have and afford some luxuries as well. I’ve been tutoring English as well which help pay off some of my life’s little luxuries such as underwear.

And to end this article, I would just like to say that I’m saving up for my Christmas/Birthday Present which is a Playstation 3 and a huge ass HDTV. So, anyone care to contribute to this fund? I shall with a thick face hope that you will visit this site’s sponsors by looking to the left of your screen.

Be safe and don’t eat yellow snow.
