Aku masih belum blog lagi pasal my new workplace eh. Bukan kerja baru :), office je baru. My current employer ni is expanding, katanya la. And katanya nak build new campus yg boleh accommodate everything in one roof, which would only complete by year 2013 or 2014.
So, they decided to move one faculty to a new rented building sementara nak tunggu campus baru siap. Dan the new building ni is near Mine* la. My office is between hotel kuda emas itu dan S*pur*. Decision was to move the admin team yg serve the faculty. It was end December when decision was made, for me to move there la. At first aku ingat I'll just be monitoring that team from the main campus since ada dua team lagi bawah aku kat main campus. Tapi, they all decide that nak ada one senior person there kat new building utk supervise operations kat sana. I was in denial la of course, why me? Why? Sedangkan ada lagi 3 AM that they can choose from.
After a few days, I decided that I must take it positively, that I should take this as a challenge. So, I packed my things and ready to move by early January. Journey wise, lebih sket dlm 15 mins. Traffic kat bulatan kuda tu idakler jam sgt, moving ler. Nak lepaskan traffic kat kawasan perumahan aku yg masalahnya dari dulu. Once dah lepas TPM tu, berdesup je aku bawa sbb dah clear all the way sampai ke hotel kuda emas tu. Parking ada lebih sket la kena bayar. Tol RM2.60 pegi balik tapi semua tu dah incur sekali dlm parking yg aku bayar monthly so access card tu macam ko bleh kuar masuk 8 kali kat tol tu without charges la.
It's just a small team of 7. Crowd agak kurang la dari main campus, but still students being students la kan..sakit gak kepala nak melayan diaorg ni. Dulu aku ada concentrated area to focus on, but now, I had to learn new things operation wise, coz tempat baru ni dah jadi macam mini version of main campus. I'm expected to know A-Z and so, it's quite challenging dan menguji kesabaran aku daily la sebab scope pun dah luas and hence, aku ada new perspective of things. And it being a new place, will take some time to adapt to. Decisions pun some time kena cepat and aku kena juggle between interaction with students, lecturers dan juga staff aku sendiri. Dan tak lupa jugak aku masih ada staff lain yg masih refer2 kat aku dari main campus. Pening. At times, I had it easy. Other times, I just feel like screaming and just waiting for the time to strike 6.00pm.
Aku dah takde lunch partner so agak bosan. Keluar gak la dgn staff sendiri. So tak leh la nak mengumpat sedangkan lunch time tu le masa sesuai utk let off some steam kan hehe. Dulu breakfast dgn my sis every morning, now aku jumpa dia weekend je bila visit mama/ayah. Lunch selalu dgn bff kat office, now nak jumpa dan bercerita pun payah. But once a week, cuba gak la makan sekali and meet at one place yg paling tengah antara our campus :).
So, I have two choices. Either I complaint about it all the time and be cranky, or I take it positively and prove that I am capable to handle the pressure. Tepuk dada, tanya selera. Saya adalah manusia biasa, bukan robot. Jadi kadang2 aku cranky sampai migraine or kadang2 aku gelak happy-happy and assume it as just another working day.
Will blog about it again in some other posts. Aku macam berazam nak bercerita hari2 lepas ni.. ye lah ko Amy..
