I’ve started my new work at a new place yesterday and i’m still learning to adapt to the new environment, which is not really a problem for me. wanted to put it up yesterday but then got ppl ‘curi cable’ (steal cable) so couldn’t be able to online.
First thing when i reached there while waiting for the HR personnel to entertain me, i was told to read the book on about their ‘Terms & Conditions of Services’. it was ok and i thought maybe that’s the only book i’ll ever have to read before starting my work.
So, i was brought around the building and introduced to some ‘important’ ppl. and finally, i was brought to my dept. to meet up wit my colleagues (and also ex-unimates). at that moment i thought to myself, now at least i won’t feel alone in the whole IA dept. as i was in my previous company.
I was showed to my table and the next moment came 2 more books to be read. one was ‘Competence Framework’ while the other one was ‘Audit Approach Methodology’ (500+ pgs!). wah lao eh, i can’t believe it there was so much to read.
Just if yesterday wasn’t enough, i was again given another 2 more books today to read. i have to admit that i’ve never read so much non-stop before in my entire life, not even my uni life! normally, reading a book for an hour is enough to kill my life. wat more to say, me reading books for these 2 days non-stop. and besides, i have nothing else to do but read. i was told not to rush to be given work cos i need to understand lots of things from the books before getting my hands on doing the work. by the way the book i was talking about, are books written and printed by the company itself.
No pc for me yet, but maybe a laptop if i request for one but it’ll take donkey years. so, about 90% of my colleagues brought their own laptops. and if you look at it the other way, you might mistaken it for a PC Fair! at the moment, i’ll see how things go first before deciding to use my own laptop for work.
There’s only 1 thing that i wasn’t happy with compared to my previous company. and that is the TOILET! here, the toilet cubicles is too crampy and not comfortable enough for me to do my business. in my previous company, the toilet cubicles are so spacious and tiles are even better than the one here. the toilet in the previous company is so nice till the extent that there are ppl who is able to take a nap while in the middle of doing their big business. can you see how great is the toilet now?!
Anyway, will blog more as days goes by.
cheers & GB…
