Working Abroad

(Day 27 in Kabul)

Being far away from home on an assignment is like being on a ship far away from the shore.

There is water everywhere and no land on sight for miles. After a month or so, the feeling being lonely and boredom kicks in and this is compounded by the same old food that is provided in the morning, afternoon and in the evening.… [Click to read the rest] “Working Abroad”

Another misleading statement?

(Toll charges without any care – Picture source: Bernama)

Just in case you have missed it!

I was reading TV Smith’s “A Tunnel Review” and one of his statement got me thinking. TV Smith said “Dear Samy said the toll will be higher than normal as the cost of construction is exceptionally high.… [Click to read the rest] “Another misleading statement?”

Royalty and the Government

A quote from Fahrenheit 9/11 was running through my mind this morning:-

Me: Was it all just a dream?

Pak Lah: The Raja Muda of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah, has the concerns of his people at heart, although he was born into royalty

Me: Did this statement came out from a politician’s mouth?

If you can’t fight them…

I was not feeling well yesterday and now I know why…

How fast some people can change to suit their needs? One day they say blogs are bad and need to be curtailed but on another day, they say use blogs to “keep abreast of new information technology”. Zam said that “many officers are still using outdated methods in disseminating information and are not maximising advertising space to the fullest” I am pretty sure that he talking about himself.… [Click to read the rest] “If you can’t fight them…”

Burka Band

(Day 20 in Kabul)

It can be downright serious in Kabul with armed guards by the road side, at the entrance of the hotel and riding in the same vehicle with us. The very mention of the place “Kabul” may sent shivers to some people and I can’t blame them – the newspapers here always have an article about the fight against Taliban on frontpage on daily basis.… [Click to read the rest] “Burka Band”

Day off!

(Day 19 in Kabul)

It was 11 in the morning when the call came in.

Breakfast was the last thing in mind on my day off from work and yet the call was something I could not ignore – it was from a friend at our workplace in Kabul inviting us for dinner at his home.… [Click to read the rest] “Day off!”

TDS: Total Dissolved Solids in Kabul (Day 15)


Image Source: The Take Out

It is Day 15 in Kabul

I have been learning new things abroad and whilst it is mostly related to my work but there are some that are not. One of it is the quality of water that we drink.

Before this assignment, I had no idea just how bad was the quality of water until a friend of mine explained about it and that included noting down the TDS value of the water.… [Click to read the rest] “TDS: Total Dissolved Solids in Kabul (Day 15)”

Cheap Classification?

It does not take that long to get “foot in the mouth” statements from our local “heros”, doesn’t it? 

Just for the kick of it, I had this post titled Zam : Classify bloggers from the Star for my morning joke:-

Malaysia has to classify bloggers as professionals and non-professionals as a mechanism to prevent the misuse of blog sites, Information Minister Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin said.

Seeing French!

(Day 12 in Kabul)

It is Friday today…that is something like me saying “it is Sunday” and the odd thing is I should be in bed as at now. Only problem is I was not but rather was at work with the rest of the Malaysians here (I know that I am going to be a zombie soon).… [Click to read the rest] “Seeing French!”
