Project 365

Welcome! This is my own 365 project of creating at least one post per day about the stuff that I learnt, achieved, and found, the stuff that made me happy, or the new thing I did every single day.

The project was started on 21 February 2010. It has stopped for few times but I am determined to continue!

This project is dedicated to myself. I want to feel grateful for every single thing I have. I want to be thankful for my own life. I just want to feel that I have enough.

First Day at HQ

Today was my first day at the headquarter of SWIFT, the company where I work at. The HQ is huge, with a big park inside the complex and small streams. There are different buildings scattered across the complex. They are really beautifully designed. The interior has different themes and design: contemporary, nature, zen, and vintage. I wish I can post the pictures here but I’m not able to due to security reasons.

I love the company’s cafetaria! The foods are awesome and healthy. Since it’s not halal, I would opt for vegetarian and seafood. There are salad bar too so we can take as many as salad we want. I love it! Most importantly, the price is very cheap! The drinks and coffee are free all day long. Here is what I ate today (6 euros):

You won’t be able to get the same price outside. This sort of meal should cost me more than 10 euros outside.

Alhamdulillah for everything.

What They Think of Me


These words are written by my colleagues during our 2-days team building event in Kampar, Perak. Each person had a paper sticked on his/her back, which can be written by others. It was a fun event full of craziness & adventure. I wish it could be much more adventurous though πŸ™‚ I enjoyed it so much. For the first time of my life, I didn’t feel lonely.

But unfortunately, loneliness struck so easily as soon as I reached KL. Oh I wish I could be surrounded by loving people all the time…

The Question of Ethnicity

Personal Details

When you have lived in Malaysia for few months, you know what I am talking about.

Yes, Malaysia is a multi-racial and multicultural country. Everyone knows that. But I find it intimidating that countless forms, both online or paper versions, belonging not only to government organizations but also commercial companies, contain the question of ethnicity. What does it have to do with anything? Tell me, why does a telecommunication company want to know your ethnicity? How about an internet company? What’s their purpose, really?

My First Free T-Shirt!



I got my first free t-shirt today at the office. I liked it πŸ™‚ I especially loved the cup. It’s really cool!!!

Although I’ve only been working for a week, I really enjoy working here. I’m still in a training phase, but I love what I have learnt so far. The web applications that they develop are one of the best in the market! (or even the best!) I’m not trying to be bias. It’s the fact. LOL.

I also get along with my colleagues really well, especially the team that I am in and the people whom I often have lunch with. The environment around the office is very casual. Very multicultural. Everything is transparent. I feel like I am in my comfort zone. That’s a great thing.

I hope I will feel the same way once I finish my training and do my “real job” πŸ™‚

A Quick Escape from KL


Today I was invited for a BBQ at a friend’s private orchard. We stayed there from 9am to 5pm, busying ourselves with eating, eating, and eating. LOL. Well, we did cut some bamboos for BBQ-ing and find some woods for fire. It was one of the best things I’ve done so far in Malaysia. I really loved to be here, away from the noisy city life. It was such a nice escape.

The Thing I Love About KL

— is its parks and a small forest in the city. I love to be here. Sitting there under the sun while reading a book — it’s so soothing.

Once I’m done with my reading or people-watching, I’d go to a nearby cafe to have a hot chocolate or cappuccino πŸ™‚


Life is good. I just wish that I can share this happiness with a close friend πŸ™‚
