Kerteh and me
Let’s just say for the past 6 days, 2 days logged work hours is equivalent to a week of normal work day! And yes, the work hours I’ve done at my current company is always at a moderate rate – work and life balance is the key. 🙂
And no, I didn’t have to go offshore.
I had to in the beginning, and was ready with my coverall, together with my safety shoes and glasses. Just a day before departure, I was told I’d be going to the most remote location, which is a 1.5 hours helicopter ride. And yes, no toilet, and no walking around in the chopper, of course! So naturally, I had to tell them about my coccyx pain, where sitting down for that long would be a definite torture.
As much as I am glad (main reason was because I didn’t have a safety passport, so in the event of emergency I wouldn’t know how to escape from the helicopter! Yeah, yeah… me and my worries…), I am sure it is actually good experience for me to go. If they were to send me to a nearer location, I won’t give it a miss! Oh-well, maybe next time…
The plus side of not going – is to have Mr. Hubs and my boy drove up for a night stay at the hotel. The boy has been talking about hotels and beaches since a few weeks back (from friends’ holiday stories & past holiday photos), so it’s kind of a good idea for them to join me, except that I had to make an early escape on Saturday (early as in 6pm, mind you, because the rest stayed until 1am) just to have some fun at the beach for a while, followed by dinner.
The next morning I’d have to be at the airport by 5am, so I left the boys while they were still sleeping. They left for home just after breakfast, dropped by the airport to say goodbye and I was left to work for 15 hours that day. Not fun, I know!
Now that I’m guilty for not able to spend as much time with them as I want to, I think I should have a proper beach holiday in another few weeks time! I needed it, and the boy has been asking for it… and I’m sure Mr. Hubs wouldn’t mind it at all!
Owh. Yesteday, I’ve been talking to a lady who actually has a breast reduction done, and was she glad she had all the weight lifted off her! I guess when it’s a breast reduction, people talk openly about it. Unlike the opposite!
And yes, I’m looking forward to a javanese massage & a facial at the hotel’s spa this evening. Yeay!
p.s. I actually met Izy at the airport! 🙂
