It’s more or less like a maintenance job to come here Sibu from time to time. After all, this is still a my hometown, and I still have stuff dealing with it. To be frank, I’m trying hard to give a break up with the town. I can only see worst thing getting up than getting fixed.
Well, this trip is very very short, so I need to treasure some of the best time I have at home and outside. I think I just found out how I can “use” my brother wisely Anyway, beside fixing the “maintenance” work, I too find out that I do have Indiana Jones Hats, some very old mobile phone boxes, my PMR result paper are all still here… Oh, and the sagging jeans I used to love Will be on church to donate those first thing in the morning!
Felt like going back last year again, being a contractor… Erm, actually as a home owner this time, but… Well… Anyway, it is good to see how things crumbling down and built up again. It is more or less like what I’m doing all the time – Web designing. First you see what you already have, then you see what you are getting soon, and bam! You are closing to it.
Dissembling floor, don’t like the marbles, I like some normal tiles.
Remove and build new door frames. Can’t deny that wooden door frame is nicer, but it just can’t take termites nicely.
Doing some painting job with the labours there. It was quite fun to work in a construction side again, although it doesn’t feel really right, consider that I paid them to do the job
Changing almost everything beside the structure. I like taking challenge especially when something is already fixed. By that I can really really take a good use to polish the problem solving skill.
Not only can I spend sometimes outside my house (which I basically spend for 24/7 normally), I can actually learning something new everyday, from moisture analyzer to scoping cement and etc.
Learn something new is a way to get the most out of my time
Year in and year out, this year must be the year of excitement for me already. Not only on working life, but the whole of life
House renovation started a day ago, progress has been amazing, these people work way faster than I expected, even they themselves surprise with their speed. Hopefully can get it fixed within this month.
Unlike buying pandora charms, buying property has been the longest wait and at least at the moment, most tiring progress. Finding the right house, getting a lawyer, then getting a loan and etc. That’s the good thing about not living with parent, I was forced to learn all these.
Now, time to get some work done…
So, living in apartment (or some called it condominium, more classy) has really giving me more lesson compared to when I was in college. While I was in college, I don’t usually stays at home, and home isn’t a place where I relax. Student don’t relax at home, student sleep at home. Erm… Maybe just me
Anyway, since I spend quite some times at home, I started seeing people throwing their rubbish directly from their window to the ground, mostly outside the apartment area, some hit the car parked at the ground area. People are too stupid to understand that empty bottle doesn’t fly a long way, even a non-engineer like me understand this simple physic.
What surprised me is that my neighbour, a foreign labour. They however, understand that to throw their rubbish at home, they need to: 1, pack nicely the rubbish; 2, throw it at the designated room, which is near the lift; oh, just to add more salt to the injury – 3, close the door after dumping.
Seriously, tell me how Malaysia can become a developed country again.
