Trident 16

Filed under: Snippets Of The Piquant Life — lv @ 11:21 pm

is where i am now. it’s a rig if u must know. and it’s my first time on a rig. before this i’ve only been to platforms and barges. various of them. so now i’m glad to add ‘rig’ in the resume :p i met three friends once i arrived. two are also staying on this rig for their respective job. well, i guess i’ll bump into familiar faces everywhere heh. it has been more than a year since i last came to this field. Samarang that is. a PCSB facilities. suprisingly the ppl (the old ones) still remember me. hmmm…. well yeah, when you are a girl going out to the platforms ppl tend to remember you.

on the 1st day i came. we took a supply boat instead of fast crew boat which took us 6 freaking hour. checked in time was at 5.30a.m. and mind you, i just reached labuan from kemaman late the night before and i was in dire need of rest. the boat crews were kind enough to let me in one of the cabin and nap the whole journey to Trident 16. hehe…. and never had i onboard a boat with so many nationalities along. Schlumberger alone has sent five different engineers from five different countries, Italy, the U.S, Libya, China, and the Philippines. Ah-Ma-Zing!! and my room mate now is that lady from China who is talking on Skype with her boyfriend back in China now :p

so far i’ve only done a specific job at one of the platforms. and that was just my side job actually. my main task is here on this rig which is sadly delayed for another 2 days 😦 that means more standby and more sleep, eat, tvs, internet and chillaxing on the heli deck. oh, we had such a long mock fire drill last night.

and that is why i am so free now that i actually have time to update my blog!!!!!!!!!!!!

hmmm…. dunno what else to say so i’ll just show you some photos.


Trident 16 welcomes you 🙂
