Hello everyone, it has been quite a long time, right? I do feel guilty to my own blog for abandoning it. However, I didn’t do it on purpose, I was actually too occupied with my media asignments. After all we do what we need to do to buy “beras” he he he (same as usual), I do hope that you have not forgoten me he he he.
This time I would like to share with you my recent experience with the work I am doing now. My involment with media work has taken much of my time, so recently I decided to take up a friend invitation to tour the islands of Semporna. I was ready for a vacation…my boss however saw it as an opportunity to give me an asignment. There goes my holiday.. he he he :).
The 3 days and 2 night trip turns out to be a wonderful journey. Although I was under preasure to get photos of the place, the host of the trip and a good friend of mine, Muslianshah Masrie, made me enjoyed the trip to the max. Other than taking me and the other trip participants to 5 islands, he also made sure that we saw the unique part of the Sea Gypsies people and of course enjoyed the beauty of the islands. The best part for me is the food. Muslianshah made sure that we were well fed all along this trip. He cooked for us fresh seafood for lunch and dinner and for breakfast boiled tapioca with achovies paste or what we usually call as sambal ikan bilis (he he he tin punya kaitu bos? :)) Mus is definitely the best cook you can have during a trip.
Returning from the trip, tired but happy, I had to face my boss who has been waiting for the asignment delivery. I delivered the photos to him 2 days after returing and hoping he will approve my work. I was happy that he approved all the photos but I got the surpsrise of my life when he told me to do a write up of the whole trip to be published in Berita Harian column called Kembara. How my boss could come into conclusion that I could write, I have no idea but this was a job that really challenged me.
But, I tried my best…and I guess my boss finds my writing to be interesting enough, because he published it on 17 November 2013.
I guess what I really wanted to share here is my own expereince in venturing into new ground. I have no idea where this will take me but I am thankful to have the experience and learn a lot from it.
