I am not a man who's fascinated by being able to go around the world traveling to different places different climates. I may not qualified for such statement, but I think I'm not the traveler type.

Well, I do enjoy learning and watching different cultures, but I have no interest in going places that I've never been to. I only enjoy once I found out that place has a different or interesting geological history taken place millions of years before. Yeah, apparently rocks could induce such attraction unto me.

Beaches? Well most of the beautiful beaches I've seen are just happens to be nearby carbonate platform, that's why the scenery is beautiful. Carbonates are interesting, looking at how wave is form and affecting the beach, or should I say, shoreline is damn interesting. Other things than that are way beyond me.

Your Application Has Been Withdrawn

Wow what a cool start for today.

Well, actually that has been expected since they've never did any follow up. And with the oil prices going way down and lots of downsizing manpower happening across the globe, it would not be too difficult to guess that my chance will be put down for good.

Being a geologist, optimism is the key. Like people said, there's always a silver lining behind every event. To cope, and to continue on moving and living the life the way it should be.

A lot of other pioneers, particularly wildcatters, had been put down by the giants due to their optimism, because they were depicted as fools, trying to achieve something when the economy is not that of a good condition. But still, they manage to do so, and they get what they were after, and people who look down on them, somehow become amaze of what they are capable of doing.

For you guys, wildcatters. Cheers.

Sebab apa nak ambil Master?

Sebab nak dapat kerja bagus?

Tapi nanti orang kata overqualified.

Tapi berapa kerat ja orang yang ada kelayakan Master depa nak ambil?

Ramai lagi budak degree takpun diploma yang depa nak guna.

Mungkin sebab aku nak belajar.

Sebab aku rasa apa yang aku buat masa degree tu bodoh.

Jadi aku baru jumpa semangat untuk belajar betul-betul.

Perbaik dan tambah segala macam ilmu supaya aku dapat fahami betul betul bidang yang aku betul betul minat.

Supaya aku dapat mendalami apa yang aku minat.

Sebab aku pun berhak untuk memilih sama ada untuk sambung belajar atau tidak.

Belajar itu tak pernah merugikan, jika hasilnya ialah ilmu.

Sebab ilmu itu tiada nilai harganya, cuma manusia saja yang kadang kadang alpa tentang betapa berharganya ilmu itu.

Sebab nabi kata, belajarlah kamu walaupun ke negeri China.

Dari buaian sampai ke liang lahad, belajarlah.

Dan jangan pernah sesal akan segala ilmu yang telah kau pelajari.

Kerana satu hari nanti ilmu itulah yang menjadi harta paling berguna yang akan kau warisi.

Dan yang warismu akan warisi.


Dengan nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan (sekalian makhluk).

For the Night is Darkest Before the Dawn

The oil price really affects those who are looking for an opportunity to dwell into the career path of oil and gas industry. Apparently, projects are being canceled and a lot of job opportunity have been turned down. Lots of people lose their jobs, as well as the aspiring new graduates struggling to cope with the possibility of not getting any placement in an oil and gas company. Things aren't going to look good for a couple of years, according to experts, as the price might going to go steady (read: economic) in a very slow pace, probably in 2-3 years or maybe a whole lot longer. But, the demand will surely grow as the world population is getting an increment annually. The possibility of under supply of energy will be imminent as the world giants, or should I say, titans, trying to push back the price towards a more comfortable zone (at least $80 a barrel should make them happy). But as they always said, things like this have been predicted years before. Anything that sticks on top shall one day fall down, bend towards the gravitational attraction. Those who rise shall fall, before making another rise. And yet, rising from a fall will not take a night's effort. Probably our future generation will harvest the fruits, but not us. And so fellows of the same fate, endure and survive. No matter in what kind of situation, opportunity will rise. Maybe not in this industry or this market, but surely your services are required by others. For those of brave souls, keep up with your effort. May you bear the fruit from every sweat you've poured. For the night is darkest before the dawn.

When I was young and small, people keep telling me what I should do, instead of what I'm capable of.

In the end, I turned out to be the machine everybody wanted me to be.

But does that satisfy me? No.

Apparently, as I grow older, I learn that you should go by your own pace.

Don't follow other people's pace, some might be faster than you, some might be slower than you.

Go with your own pace. Don't go along with the flow.

You are your own flow. Don't let people dictate what you should do.

Instead, search for yourself, for what is your worth in this world.

You'll sure find your place some day.
