In blink of eyes (864782929283 blinking actually), year 2011 has ended and the year of 2012 has started.

Recalling back, I've experiences alot of things for year 2011, live like a roller coaster, going up and down.

~ Career ~
I still remember I was with Cadbury for early year 2011, feeling so excited joining the feh-mes chocolate company. And most important they gave me my expected salary, offering the job to me 1 hour after the interview! I was like sibeh happy, happy till like nobody business, telling and sharing it with all my family and friends.


And everyone congratulate me and follows with a question "Buy chocolate got discount ah?" *sweat*... but infact really got discount de, as the staff/employees are entitled to buy at staff price. So everyone so happy can't wait for me to buy chocolate at the cheapest price.

I thought this is the job where I will stay at least few years, or maybe retire here.. But God is fair, giving you such an offer but you will need to deal with a super devil bitch boss, who thought she know everything and anything. =_=

So after 7 months stands with her patterns, I resign and decided to back to basic in looking for another job. And I found this company at I-City, IT INSIGHT SDN BHD.


# My new colleagues

I was hired as consultant, and thanks to everyone I was given a chance to shine myself, and I was confirmed in 2 weeks, and was promoted to project assistant manager in 4 months. Now I believe God is fair. ^_^

~ Love ~
As u all know, maybe not everyone know... I had a bad past experiences in love at year 2010/2011. I was so down and somehow lost the way on how I should proceed to find my partner. I still remember I started to join friends or colleague for beer happy hours after work, trying hard to make myself happy by hang-over, crying over the nights and wet my pillow, depression and hating my life.

And at that moment, he appear and become my soul-mate. Who is he? Hehhehehe! You know I know la... Hahahahah!


# Us @ Korea at year 2011

Vincent who used to be my colleague,now has become my lover, my beloved lover who will always be there for me. He treat me like a princess, treat me like his precious gold. I know he will try his best not to hurt me, and giving his best to make me happy.

We've been together almost 2 years (coming August), and I hope more years to go.


#Show off with another face-stick-face photo. Hahahhaha!

At year 2011 also, Vincent and I also bought a house at Bandar Puteri, Klang. But yet to get the key, as now it's in the process of getting the loan settlement. I guess we will get the house key in 1-2 months. There goes our first dream house. *Sweet*



#Our dream house

~ Family ~
Nothing much but my family members growing bigger and bigger. My eldest sister just got pregnant and expecting their 3rd kid, while my 2nd elder sister just delivered her 2nd kid. Wow! Bigger isn't? =_=

And with the exponential growth of Tam's family, it make me think when it will be my turn to get baby so I can together gather contribute in making the number bigger and bigger. Hahahha!



I don't know, he don't know, no one knows except God. Hahahahha! I guess we will know when I write about "Bye 2012, Harlo 2013" ba.. So stay tune la ya...

My journey with IISB

Posted by ~Elaine Tam~ at 5:37 PM 0 comments Links to this post
You must be wondering what is IISB or who is IISB or what the heck is IISB? Haha! you can try search Google or even try to ask Siri whether she know anything about IISB?

Actually IISB is my new company, and it stands for IT INSIGHT SDN BHD. I've been joining this company since July 2011. Hmmmmm.. *counting fingers*.. Ohhhhhhhh, almost close to 5months, entering half year being part of IISB. Isn't that fast? Felt like just joining this company like 1-2 months. But I've been through alot with this company eventhough it's just for such a short time.

I still remember for the second day joining this company, my boss brought me to meet customer, given me a task to prepare presentation slide in the first week itself.

After 2 weeks joining this company, I was given 3 projects to handle. Wtf! Will it be too fast bah? @.@ Thank God I manage to survive and thank God I manage to learn from it. I guess because of the struggle, after spending the effort in trying my best to learn from others, I was confirmed and promoted quite fast within 2-4 months time.

Nevertheless after being confirmed and promoted from application consultant to project assistant manager, the responsibility on my shoulders getting heavier, whereby boss will always keep you in the mails, regardless it's hot-burning cases or something that boss require you to follow up. Customers rushing for projects deadline, business partner rushing for user training, boss rush for timeline project plan, boss rush for weekly meeting, everything just rush and rush.

Anyway, I'm trying my best to cope and be myself in everything. *cross fingers everything will work out fine* OMITOTU!! ALILUYA!

Back to my journey with IISB, there were alot of milestone which I've marked in my memory being with all of them, all IISB's gals and guys!

Sports activity

Let's start with the first activity that I can recall, Go Kart session with all of them. It's really fun, why? Since it's illegal to speed on the road, that's the only way we could push our pedal to the MAX without the worry of exceeding the limit and kena stop by "someone and being asked for "duit kopi".

#1 Around 20-25 of us takes turn to play Go Kart under the hot burning sun! To add on, it was at 12pm... As a result, I got complimentary tanned-skin. Wtf!


#2 Me after 25 of continuous laps on the field, with sibeh smelly helmet!


#3 Happily laugh with the "gelagat" from him who always be the clown in the office! Hahaha!


#4 We even build something "unique" during the game-session. What do you think it looks like? Answer to be provided at the end of this post. Haha!



Not long after that I was invited to the management retreat which was organized at Colmar tropicale, Bukit Tinggi, a 1 night stay trip. Basically this management trip is to discuss the goal and target of the company. Not sure why I was invited, they claimed I was talkative enough to give ideas. *Speechless*

Anyway, it was a great trip especially when we are away from office to enjoy easy breeze there.

#5 Yes, Management Retreat "Walking Towards The Future".


#6 all of the Bosses, HOD (Head of Department) and senior consultants and me!


#7 We also spent sometime to exercise, to sweat, to challenge each other by playing badminton over the sport house.



#8 Frankly, most of them are very playful, just like me. Adding me in, it make it even worst! Hahahaha!



Birthday Celebration

#10 See, once bosses are they, one cake for each of them! So luxurious birthday huh!




Farewell & Sports Activity
