I know it's only 10 weeks but 10 weeks away from home is quite a hard for me especially when I never ever actually lived anywhere else. To top it all I never even been to Sipitang, I heard of it of course and I admit I wasn't really keen in going there in the first place.
Anyway here is a photo diary of my life for 10 weeks at Sipitang.
Taken At Esplanade, Sipitang
The construction site.
I just came back from the site and saw this cute little puppy. I was homesick and this puppy just made my day.
The friendships that started there.
In the messy overcrowded office/home.
New phrases that I learned.
This device is a vibrator or as the workers call it "Lancau" a.k.a "Penis". I don't really know how to explain properly the usage of this vibrator, I know the workers use it to settle the concrete... urmm...That sounds wrong, anyway due to my lack of vocabulary. (Okay, I sucks in English and trying improve it. English is not me first language.)
Experienced the famous Beaufort flash flood. We were stuck for 2 hours.
Witnessed man butchering a bat.
Became a game addict for a month. Okay... Not really an addict but I can't stop playing skyrim there and I'm not the type of person that get carried away in such things. I also learned how to play DOTA, torch light and L4D.
The temporary stop work phase turn everyone I knew there into some crazy game addict. Everybody would pretend as if they're doing something serious when in fact, they were playing DOTA. zzz
So that's about it. I love the job, I hate the management, I enjoyed hanging out with my colleagues, I had good food most of the days, I learned to socialize with people outside my social circle, I get to know a few professionals that turn out to be perverts in disguised, I've been in to a kampung karaoke, even sung Lily Allen's "Fuck you" there and manage not to offend anyone.
If people ask me, "will you do it again?"
I will definitely answer, yes if the money is good and better management. Haha!
Bye Sipitang... See you. :)
