I think today is a nice time to post my Malaysia trip. I’m on the sick leave and have nothing to do at home.I went to Malaysia on 6 of Feb, It was an eve of Chinese New Year. I woke up at 8 in the morning and I just had a thought to pass the border and wondering around Jahor Baru, the border town on Malaysia side. As soon as I cleaned and tidy up myself, I grabbed my passport and rushed to the city train station which is only 7 minutes walk from my place. I rode the city train, MRT until Woodlands Regional Interchange Station which is only 5 minutes away from Yishun MRT station. There are only 2 MRT station in between Woodlands and Yishun which are Simbawang, Admiralty. I switched from the train to the bus at Woodlands Station to cross the border.The bus took me to entrance of the immigration portal on Singapore side and waited me at the back yard. It took only more or less 10 minutes to reach the portal. So I presented my passport and multi-entry visa for Malaysia and Singapore and m…

Fetching up a friend in Changi Airport

While I was waiting to meet with Desmond, a call just came in. It is form one of my close friends Soe Wai Linn. He said Aung Win Tun, A-Phoo-Gyi is his nick name, means the old man in Burmese, is arriving with this afternoon flight. So I questioned for more information about the old man’s flight schedule, the departure time, flight number, etc. However SWL can only estimate the flight time and he assured that is a direct flight from Yangon. So I surfed internet and checked the arrivals flight from Yangon.

Just after I passed through the site compound, a thought came into my mind. It would be very nice for the old man if I wait him and pick him up at the air-port. Again, SWL is ready to provide an accommodation for him. This was one of the reasons that he called me earlier. So I set …

Sick Leave

Today, I took my impromptu very fist sick leave in Singapore. I’ve been feeling unwell since last Friday. Good Friday wasn’t good enough for me. On that day I did fatigue physical exercise as soon as I had dinner with dinner with Ko Hla Tin. From that time forth, I had dirrara, dizziness, sneezing and a slight fever until Monday afternoon. Suffering all those kind of symptoms, I’m a little bit weak and I feel defenseless.
Actually, I spent the whole morning at work. Preparing M&E drawing for Ko Thein Tun and correct the errors on the co-ordination plan which was made a few months ago. Lunch time, as usual, I went out with my Burmese colleagues, Ko Thein Tun and Ye Htoon and opened to them that I’m feeling unwell. Ko Thein Tun advised me to take sick leave under the permission of Desmond, the project manager. Just after I came back for the diner, I wait a few minutes to see Desmond to ask his permission. It needs to wait sometime to go into his room although I can see his desk from …
