Chemical Disposal, Technical Evaluation, Technical Lab Tour… etc

I have several pre-scheduled tasks for today (as expected after holding this position).

First, made a site visit to the chemical disposal storage which at 9 am, a team of technical staffs will work together to clear and transfer the waste chemicals to another chemical disposal storage area. Basically, we intend to have only one waste chemical storage for easier management and facilitation.

Secondly, there was this Penilaian Teknikal meeting for some items that will be purchased. This was chaired by the Timbalan Dekan Penyelidikan & Inovasi (TDPI). 4 Items were interestingly been reviewed 🙂 .

Thirdly, there was this official visit by Universitas Sriwijaya (UNSRI) to our faculty. Later, I brought the delegation to visit some of our labs. Exactly 5 of the labs. Thanks to the help of Dr. Anam, Jamal, Firdaus, Azri, Roslan, Dr. Wan Rosli, who helped to guide and explained about the labs etc to the Indonesian delegates. Credit to Shahril, our cameraman for the day.

Earlier in the morning, the technical staffs worked together (gotong-royong) to clear, clean the previous FCE chemical waste disposal storage area. Great effort, remarkable teamwork.

Subsequently, I had several unofficial meetings with several important people in the faculty – for technology & knowledge transfer, job/task transfer, comprehending many things, a bit planing and a bit of this and that… 🙂

Most importantly, I need to stay relax, calm and not to stress out myself.

Back home, I had a good badminton with my other half and kids 🙂 Need to balance life… work… family… exercise… Majalah 3… and writing this post 😉 then get some rest…

3rd Game – UTM Inter-Deparment Badminton

We just played our 3rd game tonight, which is the first in this knock-out stage. This time we battled Faculty of Science. Surprisingly, I was asked to play single. Hesitated, I obliged with the decision by our team leader / manager (Prof. G). The game started.

If you just read this post, you should read 2 earlier post here and here, to know the complete overview of our game.


(1) 1st double (PM Dr. Asnizam & Ahmad MPRC) – we LOST unfortunately.

(2) Single (ME) – surprisingly I won (YES)! I was lucky I guessed 🙂 God helped me! And it was a straight set. My opponent was exhausted and slightly heavier than me. That’s some advantage for me.

(3) 2nd double (Prof G. & Roslan Jas) – the decider – again, we lost unfortunately.

OVERALL – We LOST and will not proceed to the quarter final tomorrow.

Well, it’s ok. It’s just a nice game. I treated it as an activity for me to exercise (but during the game, it can turned out to be very tense!)

InsyaAllah, we’ll try next year 🙂



2nd Game – UTM Inter-Deparment Badminton

After the first game versus Bendahari, we fought Perpustakaan team. In this game, I partnered Ahmad MPRC again as FCEE first double. We played first. Followed by single (Dr. Nazri) and finally second double (Dr. Lau and Be Cheer).


We won all game 3-0.

All games were won with straight set. Unbelievable. Unstoppable. We emerged as champion for group C.

We will proceed to the next round, but this time it will be tougher. The game will be tonight. Let’s pray and hope for the best. Go FCEE!!!


UTM Inter Departmental Badminton Tournament

Besides being in the faculty’s football team for this year’s Staff Inter-Department Game, I am also in the faculty’s badminton team. This year, we were drawn in the same group as Bendahari and Perpustakaan. Tonight we were arranged to battle Bendahari. Luckily the format has been changed from 3 doubles & 2 singles to 2 doubles & 1 single. This is mainly due to lack of players available. I played alongside Ahmad MPRC (Gastech) as the second double team for tonight.

The result…

FKT (FCEE) won 3-0 against Bendahari 🙂

A sweet victory!

Tomorrow we are going to fight Perpustakaan. Hopefully we will repeat our success. Go FKT!!!
