boring here

February 22, 2007

I am writing from Winchem and there are merely a few people working here and what is the hit is that we trainees are not allowed to take any leaves this Chinese Nerw Year. The Cheng Beng celebration is still unfated as I dunno whether can get any leave for that particular day… What a mess

Joshua another trainee went home early escaped from the boreness of the company as he is having some little fever. And today for the first time the company give me a RM 10.00 worth of angpow and this make my angpow collection to be at RM 150.00 only… considered as good already for a moderate and yet down to early middle income family that I had.

till I write next time… I shalls stop here before the boss come and kick my ass..

Accident …

February 9, 2007
8.00 am is the time i reach the Industrial Estate with my bike energy supply at half its capacity. In the same time there are a motorcyclist overtook most of the car from behind and ride in front of me.. As there are many car heading to Prai 2,3 and 4 the road is jammed up. Traffic is slow and many decided to take a short cut. I decided to took the short cut to save time and petrol but the Nepalese who is infront of the cut the cue and dash for a U turn.. perhaps they are late..

I had to stopped my bike and allow them to make a U turn first.. From far i can see a 4 wheeler coming fast and I try to honk them… even the rest of the motorist are doing that… From the time I stop to the time I honk is barely 5 seconds and there goes an accident… The pillion rider was thrown and landed 10 metres from where I am.. and we went to help.. No body dares to do anything other than to drag him to the roadside…

If i were the one who is doing the U turn perhaps I could be the one… When i reach Radcure which, Joshua who is attached to Winchem came and tell me… Chin… the Nepal fella Tapau de…I asked… Tapau Nasi Lemak or wat… He replied, Tapau Nasi Lemak… Black plastic bag one..

So we understood….. The pictures are in my Phone … can t upload as the bluetooth device is corrupted.. This reminds me to drive safely.. Always….

Industrial Training

February 3, 2007

Perhaps there may be some confusion that leads to miscommunication. I am based in Prai for Industrial Training and in the same time the company name, Winchem is having a few companies as its subsidiaries.

The Winchem group of companies are consists of

  1. Winchem Paint ( Malaysia ) Sdn Bhd
    Manufacture Paint
  1. Radcure Ink and Coatings Sdn Bhd
    UV Cured Ink as well as printing inks
  2. Glofin Sdn Bhd
    Marketing and Sales.
Many thought that I am in the paint company instead I am actually in the Ink company. So to be exact I am based in Radcure Ink and Coatings Sdn Bhd that make me know nuts about paint. Even though it is under the same umbrella the function and the product of this company as well as the lab facilities are different.

Since they are subsidiaries, they are registered under the same address. For those who may be confused that I am actually in Radcure and not exactly as Winchem. The one who are based in Winchem is my senior, Mr Joshua Raj from Sitiawan.

Today i went late to work even thou I had my alarm at 6.00 am. I just thought of sleeping for another half an hour and this make me to sleep till 8.30 am..damn.. called up the company and then rush to work forgetting to bring my water container.

Reach the company at 9.10am punched my card and later i got called up by the supervisor which is also the company director and advised not to be late anymore.. They all thought that i had myself involved in an accident or something but it seems they had their self guessing the wrong thing.

Today’s assignment is to prepare the Optix Bright Orange and things are being done quite well and the following monday will be the QC day and definitely have to come early. Time passes so fast in the work place and this is the time for lunch and today, they have this Chinese New Year Luncheon in Victoria Station Bandar Sunway, in Penang.

My First Day In Winchem cum Radcure

February 2, 2007

Industrial training thou is not compulsory for me at the moment, it was a great time to have by doing it in advance and another real one in the future. When arrive, I was greeted by a half decade lady which i thought to be a sweet seventeen or worst a creamy ladies in 30s. Her youth vocal is blinding everyone including myself who are not easily conned by voiced. I am tricked this time. What a disappointment.

Briefing and the factory tour was conducted by Mr Wong, Admin Manager and soon we are handed to the directors of the company, Mr Andrew Low and Mr Choo. FYI, Mr Andrew is the son of the Managing Director means there are no play play business here. There are 2 sections here whereby Winchem is divided to 2 subsidiaries. Winchem is dealing with paints and Radcure is another company that deals with UV Ink.

I therefore was being picked by Mr Choo to join him in Radcure Sdn Bhd and I am guided by Ms Khoo who is the senior chemist. My first assignment is to mix the ink to be sent for quality control. It was a tough task initially but I initially picked up by due to my poor respiratory resistance towards the turpentin and thinner that was used to provide solvency to the ink, I am having a watery nasal for that particular day.

Job ended at 5.30pm and I therefore took my bike and rush myself out of this place and tomorrow will be another day.

There will be more update on Winchem very very soon…
