let's do our bit

Have you heard of HDPE Material? For those who are familiar with pipings or trunkings, might have heard about HDPE pipes. But what exactly is HDPE?

HDPE is an abbreviation for High Density Polyethylene. It is waterproof and has high resistance towards chemical. Due to its properties, it is often used in many packaging applications, namely household and indutrial chemicals such as detergents, acid, bleach, etc. It is also used as cable trunkings or pipes because of its robustness to the rigors of the environment.

Just as any as other plastic materials, HDPE materials are recyclable. HDPE Scrap is a form of recyclable waste which consists only HDPE. If you are involved in dealing with HDPE material, and would like to avoid unnecessary wastages, Raw Polymers Ltd. is a perfect stopover for you to sell the HDPE leftovers. So besides doing some side business, you are also doing your bit to Mother Earth. There are many forms of HSPE Scrap out there. Below are the most common ones:

  • Post consumer HDPE Scrap (mixed scrap made of HDPE. It can be sorted by color or not)
  • HDPE film trimmings (scrap left over from manufacturing)
  • HDPE grocery bags (they come in colors: natural, white, black, mixed, printed and unprinted)
  • HDPE Regrind (all kinds of HDPE heated into hard solid material then grinded and made ready for recycling)
  • Scrap HDPE bottles
  • HDPE barrels and drums (empty “barrels” made of HDPE)
  • HDPE Slip sheets
  • HDPE white film scrap
  • HDPE shreadings

For those who are interested in finding HDPE suppliers, you can also find the relevant people who are responsible in handling the business. All you have to do is jump in, and fill in the form to forward your inquiries.

alone again, naturally - gilbert o' sullivan

I've been looking for this song over the years but to no avail. But in those times there were no YouTube! Laughing So thanks to YouTube, I present to you, Alone Again, Naturally, by Gilbert O' Sullivan. Now I can listen to it everyday on my blog!

Alone Again, Naturally
Gilbert O' Sullivan

In a little while from now
If I'm not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to whoever
What it's like when you're shattered
Left standing in the lurch at a church
Where people saying: "My God, that's tough"
"She stood him up"
"No point in us remaining"
"We may as well go home"
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to, who wouldn't do?
The role I was about to play?
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about God in His mercy
Who, if He really does exist,
Why did He desert me?
In my hour of need
I truly am indeed
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts
Broken in the world that can't be mended
Left unattended
What do we do? What do we do?

[instrumental interlude]

Alone again, naturally

Looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally

A sad song actually, about losing the loved ones. Crying

homecoming for dr. kadir rosline...majlis bergunting at kg. bayangan, keningau - 20 march 2008, 12 rabiulawal 1429

During Maulidur Rasul last week, we went to Keningau to attend a majlis bercukur/bergunting at Kg. Bayangan, Keningau. The kenduri was also to comemmorate Uncle Kadir's homecoming from Wales after completing his PhD. So he is officially a 'Doctor' now!!! CONGRATULATIONS! Star

To those who studied in UiTM Menggatal (I know Carol is, don't know who else), yup this is the 'still-Encik' Kadir Rosline you know, before he went overseas. Some of you studied with him also I think. To those who are currently studying in UiTM Menggatal, presenting your Deputy Director. Big Grin

The Majlis began with berzanji, followed by the actual bergunting ceremony, there were 4 children, 3 of them still newborns, the other was Dr. Kadir's son, then followed by the Zohor Jemaah prayers, then ended by the 'makan-makan', which everybody was waiting for! HEHEHE!!! 4 cows were sacrificed, so we were in for a treat!

Here are some photos I took of Uncle Kadir and his family.

men never listen...

Got this one from my friend, through email...Hehehe... Big Grin

A man and his wife receive a letter from their daughter who went to study overseas:

My beloved Parents, I miss you so much. I don't know when I'm coming home, but it seems not anytime soon. It breaks my heart to think that by the time I get back you'll be too old. So enclosed you will find a bottle of a potion I have invented. It will make you young, so when I return you'll be the same age as I left you. NOTE: "Please take only one drop"

NOTE: "Please take only one drop"

So they open the envelope and in it there is a bottle with a red potion..

The husband looks at the wife and says: "You go first."

So the wife opens the bottle and takes a drop, there after the husband follows. Indeed they do turn 5 years younger.

A year passes and the daughter returns home to find her mother young and beautiful, carrying a baby on her back.

The mother proceeds to tell her daughter how the potion worked and made her look young.

The daughter is delighted and asks about her father.

"Your father, my child, got so jealous that I was young and beautiful so he drank the whole bottle."

"So where is he?"

"Oh, that's him I have on my back."

Are we really like this? Maybe I should ask Dan... Laughing

butterflies...

Hahaha...Laughing

I'm trying to avoid it, but I can't say that I entirely forget about the phone call I am supposed to get from a certain oil & gas company. I know I would jump when I see numbers that begin with the prefix 03, followed by 2051, flashing in my handphone screen.

So this morning, the call came...

Me: Hello
Lady: Hello, can I speak to Mr. Muhammad Izuan
Me: Yes, speaking
Lady: Yes En. Izuan, I believe you have attended our interview session in KLCC last Saturday
Me: Oh, yes yes... (DOH! Doh)
I don't know why, but for some reasons butterflies were all over the place, not only in my tummy, but everywhere; tummy, chest, veins, nerves, brain everywhere!!! I could feel I was trembling!!! Nailbiting
Lady: Mmm...okay Mr. Izuan...
Yessssss...this is the moment I've been waiting for!!!
Lady: Mmm...we can't process your application because you haven't submitted your latest resume...
Shit! Sooooo anti-climax!!!At wits end Hadn't I?! OMG!!!
Me: Alamak, really...
Lady: Yes, I think you forgot to leave it with us the other day. We have all the other documents, EXCEPT your resume.
Me: Oh, okay, is there anything I can do... Confused (Is that even the right question to ask?)
Lady: Yes, can you fax it to us, or easier still, can you email?
Me: Oh sure, I'll do that as soon as possible. What's your email address?
Lady: Ummm...you can check the email I sent to you for the invitation.
Me: Oh yes...okay, I'll send it to you...
Lady: Okay, thank you. Bye
Me: Bubbye...

WHAT!!! The waiting continues... Waiting Nail-biting... Nailbiting

i don't know...neither do i...

Two young engineers applied for a single position at a computer company. They both had the same qualifications. In order to determine which individual to hire, the applicants were asked to take a test by the department manager. Upon completion of the test, both men missed only one of the questions.

The manager went to the first applicant and said, "Thank you for your interest, but we've decided to give the job to the other applicant."

"And why would you be doing that? We both got nine questions correct," asked the rejected applicant.

"We have based our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you missed," said the department manager.

"And just how would one incorrect answer be better than the other?" the rejected applicant inquired.

"Simple," said the department manager, "Your fellow applicant answered question #5, 'I don't know.' You answered, 'Neither do I.'"

my not so weekend... (21/03 - 22/03) - Part 3

I didn't do much in KL Sentral. After having a much needed meal at McDonald's (starving!!!), I took the SkyBus to LCCT to catch my flight back to KK. It was rather early, but my watch showed 5:32 pm when I boarded the bus, so I guess it's okay because I don't have to wait for so long. Remember my flight back to KK is 9:25 pm.

I had to buy time, so I bought Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist. It was good. I recommend it.

25032008389

I waited, until I felt the time is appropriate to check-in. Just as I finished my checking in, astaga!!! The guy behind the check-in counter told me that the flight kena retimed lagi 2 hours!!! 2 hours and 20 minutes! To 11.45 pm! Kering la ni!!! Kalau telur menetas sudah jadi ayam! Huhuuuu...So kasian... Crying

By the time my flight was announced for boarding, I had finished The Alchemist, had an Esprit (Orange & Tangerine), and chicken lasagna in The Coffee Bean. Plus numerous visits to the loo, and unsuccessful attempts to the internet, through KLIA Wi-Fi. I was too tired already when I boarded the plane, I straight away dozed off. When I woke up, it was caused by a shudder, signalling that the plane had already touched down in KKIA T2.

Hopefully, my journey was worth it. Praying

my not so weekend... (21/03 - 22/03) - Part 2

I reached KLCC at around 8.20 am. I thought I was early. When I reached Level 36 (yes, the interview was conducted on Level 36), there were already all of the other candidates, except another 2, me being one of them. One of them was actually there since 7.30!!! Wow, surely they were serious!

Before the actual 'Structured Interview' began, we were all brought into one room where we were all shown a video on what Petronas is all about. It is there where I learned one thing about Petronas; Energy Received, Energy Returned, Aspiring People, Everywhere. Thinking

Why is it called a 'Structured Interview'? It is because the interview is divided into 3 parts; Ability Tests, Case Study, and the normal interview itself. Whew, mind you, they were hard. Guess what my case study topic was...'Publicity and Privacy'. What the!!! I have a blog, do you consider that as looking for publicity? Do I have to mention that I blog to the interviewers? Ekekeke...

The tests were predictably tough, and when you add the time constraint, it becomes harder. The case study, hmmm...had to please the interviewers, but how do we cope with devious publicity and privacy issues in the 'World Wide Web' age? Nevertheless, I thought I did well, so now I'm just hoping for the best in the next 10 to 14 days time. Hope for the best, expect the worst. I'm just grateful for the chance I got to even be shortlisted and be called for the Structured Interview, everything else after that is the will of Allah SWT. Angel

When the interview finally ended, I realized I was the only candidate left in the room. Man, I was grilled by the interviewers for 2 hours! And it was already 3 pm. I went straight out to window shop at Suria, before taking the LRT to KL Sentral.

Hehe...haftogo, they're closing the office, will continue tonight...see ya! Big Grin

my not so weekend... (21/03 - 22/03) - Part 1

I was just reading Ratu's blog about how she spent her weekend. Nice!!! Too bad it wasn't McLaren though, but it's better when you have both drivers on points rather than only one! And the standings still shows that Lewis Hamilton is still numero uno by 3, ahead of Raikkonen and Heidfeld. Oh yeah, and McLaren is still leading the constructor's standings with 24 points followed by BMW Sauber with 19, and Ferrari in THIRD PLACE with only 11 points. It's only the 2nd race of the season. Surely McLaren will bounce back in Bahrain. Go McLaren!

Anyways, my weekend was kinda...hectic, if not eventful. I was lucky that it coincide with the long holidays, and Saturday was declared a 'holiday' (notice the quote-unquote sign, our leave was cut one day...hmmm...) by my company. On Friday I had to fly to KL after receiving a last minute call from Petronas to attend an interview there on Saturday, 9 am. So just like karulann she had to fly back to KK, I meanwhile had to rush to KL. My flight to KL was at 4.25 pm, while my flight back to KK was on Saturday, at 9.25 pm. The flight to KL was okay, except that towards the end of the journey, we had to thread into enormous cloud, causing the plane to shudder a bit. Praying I sat next to the window so I felt compelled to take these photos.

Anyway, I reached LCCT soundly and safely. As soon as I stepped into the LCCT hall, it became apparent that I forgot about one of the biggest annual event in the country. It's the Formula 1 (or F1, or Grand Prix, or..) weekends! It's the time when people from inside and outside the country will throng KL to catch the F1 fever. Well, I knew about it, I had it in my reminder, but the sudden rush of things made it impossible for me to remember everything! Hotels will be full of course! Darn! Where am I going to stay?

Nevertheless, I managed to find a hotel, but by that time, it was already 11 pm, and I was too tired to do anything. Besides, I had to attend an interview the next day, at 9 in the morning! So, I guess it should be time to go to bed, not even time to prepare for the interview... *sigh*

What happened during the interview? Well nothing much...read on, in Part 2... Winking

trouble sleeping?

An accountant is having a hard time sleeping so he goes to see his doctor. "Doctor," he says, "I just can't get to sleep at night!"

"Well," suggests his doctor, "Have you tried counting sheep?"

"That's the problem -- I make a mistake and spend the next six hours trying to find it!" Chicken
