hola all!! it has been a while huh! i wanted to blog / update but i just couldnt get a time for it or was i lazy?? ya the big LazyBug has been bugging me…. aihhh!!!

but… but… today is an exception!!! oh my god!! oh my god!! i’m so excited!!! phehww!! how do i start this?? errrmmm…. ya!! u read it right!! there was a DEAD BODY found in the miri waters today!! a floating CORPSE!! at the Baram Field to be exact!!! oh my god!!! oh my god!!! i’m so excited!! dont believe me? read The Borneo Post / Sin Chew / Lian Ho tommorow. i’m very sure the local newpapers are very busy printing the news bout it at the moment. so if u read this now (at 9.52p.m.) congrates!! u read it first here at Cili Padi’s.

to ease the curiousity of the ppl staying in Baram, no this didnt happen in the real Baram district as in the Sarawak’s map. the Baram Field here means offshore platforms own by the Carigali. Ya, they have weird ‘so called’ local names for all their platforms eg: Tukau (haha! wat a name!! if pronouce in hokkien ‘Tu’=piggies ‘Kau’=doggies pigdog?! haahaa!!), Bakau, Bokor, Siwa, West Lutong, Baronia ect.. ect…. no need to tell all lah.

ehh.. hold on… brb in an hour. CSI just started!!

so this week my job is to cover all the platforms in Baram Field (totall 12 of them) and today was only the 3rd day. 4 days to go T_T 4 more days of waking up at wee hour in the morning like 5a.m and 4 more days of sea sick!!! agony!!! on a lighter note, i made a big achivement yesterday for not taking the sea sick pill or scientificly known as Dimenhydrinate tablets!! whee!! but today i have to take 1 tablet for my trip coming back to shore though. so no ‘whee’ today T_T

aikkss… off too far from tracks!!!

ok where was i again?? owh… the floating corpse!! so as we were applying our Permit To Work at Baram Bravo before heading to Alpha. the boat has to wait for us while doing this so it romped about the platform whitin 500m radius la…. while busying myself with my permits, i heard the OIM was talking on the phone asking like ‘ what’s the colour of the coverall? owh… head down… bla.. bla.. bla…’ and one of the PIC told me that we will face a delay cos there’s a mayat (corpse) …. at 1st i thought he was kiddinng me cos he is like that. a joker!! he called me ‘wanita beradioaktif’ in announcement or when he paged me!!!! haha!! until the alarm was raised and we had to do head count that i finally realised that there was indeed a dead body!!! wow!!! the ppl from the boat found it. Borcos Firdaus 3 to be exact. not me!! :p thank God i had to go up the platform for PTW. so i x have to witness it with my own eyes :p

the local marine police were called. and speculation started to errupt amongst us. wondering who would it be? how did it end up there? was it a Filipino? bla… bla.. bla… and the ke-po-ness went on…

so our job has been delayed. no thanks to the corpse!! T_T while relaxing for our time to start our job we talked about the shocking finding again a witness from Dayang told us it looked like a mannequin / patung / some fluffy toy at first until when the boat got nearer and they smelt the rotten stench…. ewwww!! and he even taken a photo of it…. so here it is… oh my god!!! oh my god!!! i’m so excited!!!

a photo from a photo :p photo was taken from a witness' digicam. the corpse was floating with its back on the surface.

sorry i know this photo cant do much justice but that’s all i can share here to prove i’m not making up story.

alright. sekian berita tempatan. time for a sleep. gotta wake up very early again tomorrow T_T why oh why did i agree to do this job at the first place?? T_T but for the umpteenth time i tell myself, i love my job!! ๐Ÿ™‚ i think i’m gonaa chant this to make me sleep tonight.

have a blessed day!!

black out service

the hall was that dark. those are lights from the laptop, a phone and a small window.

the hall was that dark. those are lights from the laptop, a phone and a small window.

for the 1st time today our church blacked out due to some technical maintenance by SESCO at the area. haha!! apparently no body took notice bout the power interruption announcement in the paper. so it will be off till 5p.m. since the church doesnt have a generator so there’s no way we could continue the service in the stuffy, dark hall. so after one praise song, one brief testimonial by The Pr., some important announcements and prayers we had to leave. it took a mere 30 minutes for a supposedly 2 hours service.

but God is omnipresence. He is everywhere more often nearest to our heart. it’s just a prayer away. so a black out is not an excuse for an ‘absent’ before of Him. or else our presence to the church every sunday would be just like a ‘punch card’ to report that ‘hey, Lord! i came! count me in in the book of life ok!’ sad but true. but we cant deny some christian do think of it that way. by religiously going to the church every sunday, they consider they are holy and know it all. i dont deny i used to be one of those type too T_T i thought by going to church every sunday and participating in one or two activities will consider myself a good christian. i’ve done my part or watever. but thanks to some relentless ppl around me and through various ‘berus dan sental’ i gradually learned and understand.

“for it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

ok lah, i sounded so serious up there. i dun wanna rant more as if i am all so holy like that. hehe!! *back to comic mode* i am just reminding myself cos i am so free now after returning from the 30minutes service :p

am gonna blog bout my last week’s short vacation asap. oh yes, with heaps of photos too! *grin* here’s a sneak peek ;p

can you?!! hehe....

can you?!! hehe....

have a blessed day!!

had a sleepover at The Cuzy’s place last fri cos the parents weren’t around so she needed a chauffer to send her for her driving lesson the next day. yeah, wat is a cousin for right? to become a driver. =.=” (i kid) and lagipun i haven’t sleep at their new place :p but funny thing was that instead of sleeping in the room we slept on the sofa in the living room =.=”

i brought labo along. i planned to take a sunrise shot the next morning. i told her that we will need to wake up very early to catch the sunrise.

so at the wee hour of 5a.m. sat morning, i woke up by the alarm i have set. i tried to wake Cuz Fiona up but like i’ve guessed she decided to continue on with her slumber. she was loyal to her hobby – sleeping! looking at the darkness outside i doubted that i dare to go alone myself =.=” but… thank God there’s one good fella was already up! so i found my companion *grin*

so we drove up the The Grand Old Lady. the road goin up was pitch black. sigh! where were all the street lights? or were there even any? what have the city council do?? T_T when the 2 of us reached the top it was only 5.30a.m. thank God there were lamp poles and it was bright up there. we saw many vehicles parked around the area. i wondered what was the occasion. at first i thought some early morning hash activities. but as we got nearer i saw few church vans. from the methodists. owh… they were having morning prayers on top of the hill facing the city! ๐Ÿ™‚ so i remembered one verse.

I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. Psalm 3:4

me and my little companion continued on waiting for the sun to get up. now i know that the sun in miri rises at 5.47a.m. and here are some of my takes…. it was an awesome scene.

dawn #1

dawn #1

dawn #2 - awesomeness!!

dawn #2 - awesomenes!!

dawn #3- i know this is almost similar to the above but still i like to post it ok.

dawn #6 - it's getting brighter now it's around 6.30a.m in the morning

what are their functions here other than being herbivors?

so that’s it for now ๐Ÿ™‚ i’ve proved to you that i do love nature here. and came to think of it, i actually woke up earlier during weekend than those of my working days =.=”

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. Psalm 33:5

have a blessed day peeps!!

Ehehe… yeah… iโ€™m not a good blogger see… iโ€™ve already mentioned that in my 1st entry so… here i am back as i like it :p

Hehe… some of them managed to come back this year. so weโ€™ve arranged meet-ups activity as many times as possible. Same old crazy bunch of fishes! Peter came up with a sentence that reminded us how โ€˜oldโ€™ we are already โ€˜u think we are still 18 meh? That was 10 years ago lor…โ€™ since that the line has been repeated deliberately to us ladies by the guy … hnhh!!! (pls be reminded my bday is still long way to go ok… :p)

Photography โ€“ sly, my senior back in uni came to myy for some official meeting. But being a kind senior that he always been he brought along his gf to meet labo my love. We met up for dinner and did some casual photoshoot despite the bad weather. But on 2nd day we had to give up to mother nature as liquids started to drop from the sky. Iskh!! Nevertheless, sly managed to take some good photos of me clowning :p thanks sly for being patient with my very dense head on keeping up with all the technical. Thanks also for keeping your knuckles to yourself when you are so tempted to knock my head for not even familiar with my own camera :p i promise to make do with the manual. saya budak baru belajar…..ย  *straight face*
