Today, I was still handling the investigation of the issue of a support request but it doesn’t take as much time as monday and tuesday because there wasn’t anything further we could do until the testing machine shipped to the testing location and have the necessary applications installed on them which hopefully won’t happen before going back home.
Also I got a good discussion of two colleagues which is working and had worked on the project in EMEA which I am working in Asia and shared the concerns and difficulties and it is nice to talk face-to-face and get some feedback and useful information.
For the lunch, I excused going out with my line manager and my line manager’s manager but instead turning to a colleague which I worked quite often and often found his voice and way of speaking is quite interesting – what I guess he should be quite nice! He bring me to the small stall very near to the office building and we had Thailand fried rice there. It was not his intention to order rice but gave the wrong number, but I love the dish very much indeed.
In our casual talk, I knew that we are of similar age and that he was in Faculty of Physical Education but he liked computer more so he got into this field. We also shared our aspirations and how the living people is like in our own countries and something about working aboard which is quite nice. Going back to the office, he shown me on the google map on how far away here and his own country is.
Night time is also nice, I’d been in a steakhouse with a few gentlemen and hear them share interesting story like “Suk Man Yung”. Sadly one of the gentleman got a new from a call that one of his close relative is somehow in emergency situation. That gentleman will take the flight back home in the afternoon tomorrow. Atmosphere changed and he apologized for that… To be honest, it is nothing wrong to apologize. Somehow I felt I need to apologize because I simply can’t think of a word to say and I can’t simply control my facial expression – it is sad, but I can’t show I am sad.. you know? Wholeheartedly, I hope he and his family will be fine.
For the free time in the weekend, I still hasn’t plan for it.. may be I should start planning it now and may be tomorrow morning as well..
