PETROSAINS: The Interview, Offer & The Decision.

I guess people would've been wandering what happening to me with all the tantrum's I've thrown on being in the greener pasture. Indeed, I've got another job offer. The job from an organization that people normally responded the word "sayang" or "hah? kenapa?" when i tell them i've declined their offer. (of course..from the title you already know kan...)

I actually applied for the job three months before i've been actually called and told that I am short-listed for the post i've applied for. I thought they already got people for the post.hmm..

Admittedly I've prepared myself hard for the interview.  I read ton's book's and I did studied the whole organization to make sure that I know almost everything that an interviewee should know. I prepared my outfits specifically for all those three days and it goes with handbags and shoes too. I even talk to myself ..in front of the mirror, bathroom ..and even on my way to the interview...freaky kan.. but I just need to get it right.

This is my second interview and this time the interview were as twice tougher than in my first interview. Imagine there are three phase of the interview and each phases is getting more pyschologically difficult and tense. However, just a friendly advice..anyone can ace any type of interview with thorough preparations + a little sprinkle of luck dust will be a great help.

It was a though decision to make... the decision that I have to make will not only affecting my life but I guess a lot of other life that meant so much too me.

I dedicated this post to all my lovely families and dearest friends that gone through with the decision process. In spite of all that, I realized I do have reliable friends that would actually give me the hard facts of life when I needed it most. To my dear fiancee, Paulbian..thank you babe..for your undying and endless support and love you've show to me in everything little things that I do. No one could ever replace you hunnybun!!
Recommendation ; This book has help me a lot in both of my successful interview. Perhaps this could be a little help to you too.. Just another reference won't hurt  Ciao!!....

The Weekend Breakfast : Tuaran Mee

It was one of those weekend dates, instead of roaming around kk shopping complexes..and after few hours of arguing of what we are going to do or where  to go after canceling our island trip..we finally decided to go to Tuaran .. to taste the infamous Tuaran Mee... 

Technically, I never been to Tuaran town ( I mean like..purposely went there for sightseeing or food tasting..aha! ) . From Penampang to Tuaran takes about  45 minutes to an hour (According to Paul),   However, the drive that day took longer than the usual, we stumble onto an accident involving a white myvi and an old lady. Paul saw a pool of blood is draining from the lady, I just couldn't watch it.. This is the second time we came across such tragedy. Gosh!! I still can't forget the accident up until today... 

By the way, in spite of the bitter event , we continue our journey in pursue of tasting the Tuaran Mee. We reach Tuaran about 11.00 in the morning, and the first thing you will see if you reach the town were the TUARAN MEE RESTAURANT

The Tuaran Mee Haven!!
At first, we are not really sure if this was the one that people been suggesting, however, while the restaurant lady taking our orders, I overheard a few of the customers telling the other restaurant lady how they found the place and heard about the Tuaran mee from their friends..  so, we figure we went to the right place...

Slurrrrrppp!! He is enjoying his Special Tuaran Mee Soup

Special Tuaran Mee Kon Lau Style~Macam2 ada!!

Bon appetite!!

The Tuaran Mee was superb!! Paul asked for Special Tuaran Mee Soup and I asked for the Special Tuaran Mee Kon Lau style..yummy!! ;-) ... According to the lady that work in that restaurant, the mee is made by her owner..hmm I guess that the thing that make it special ..Seems every succesful food outlets has their secret ingredient which is not a mystery though. hehe. 

Since, we took such a drive for our weekend breakfast, we decided to walk around the town and see what interesting..plus, Paul wanna check out some "Pukat" around the town.. yup..my babe is so not into gadgets..but he totally indulging himself with fishing, chainsaw-ing .. glad to have a man who knows to do these man-work ... (sejuk hati...LOL)


I took a few interesting shots around the town (trip..trip guna his new baby canon!!)

The clock tower without the clock

A few old structure in Tuaran

The Igloo Shop

We left Tuaran town about 12. 40 noon and we decided touse the new road (the one that passing 1BOrneo) to "try, test, kinam" a few shots more on the way back.

 It just one of those days..spending a day with your loved ones.. cherish every moment ;-) .. Thanks to baby Canon!! there will be more travel and trip around sabah this year I guess!! Crossfinger!! ;-p

I couldn't resist their cuteness, so I asked for a pair. Their were trembling on their first night at my home, frighten by all the new faces kali.. they seem weak as well, so I make them some milk and feed them with ALPO ...the pair slowly become energetic... im so happy to see those pair running around in my room on that night (yeah, they sleep in my room on the first night, takut kucing cakar..hehe)
