Bye bye MISC...


Hi readers,
It's been a while since i left her....
She left me with lots of memories... sweet, bitter, with a pinch of spice...
She was the smallest one I've been on...
Small but never underestimate her!!!
She brought me to places that I've never been to.
She even sent me back to see my family once in a while...
Plus, she's the only one that really balances my work, family and friends on a same plank...
oh ya! She even gave me $$ on monthly basis...
Hahaha...


It felt like just yesterday that i woke up seeing her...
But...I'm now in yesterday's future, when the present becomes the past and the past is far from reach..








Chief Officer removing the ship's name....

M.V. Bunga Mas 10....
or now known as M.V. Tanto Tangguh..
She was sold off to an Indonesian Shipping Company as MISC Liner fleet faces a huge financial crisis and decided to exit the liner business.



 
Signed by ALL the M.V. Bunga Mas 10 crews

A mixed feeling of pride and sadness was there for me as a part of the "Handing over team"
Previously, i was announced to sign off due to reduction of crew,
But, the company prefers the more senior officers to stay,
so,
my junior managed to get off...
the sad part is,
i already packed all my stuff, gave some things away as mementos, and even made this!!








A lot of procedures were done to complete the handing over of the vessel.
Paper works, Store inventories, Company documentations and even familiarization for the taking over crews....



We've been through a lot during the process.
Chased off from Port Kelang Anchorage,
Water rationing,
Restriction from going ashore,
and many more.

but....
once we stepped off the pilot ladder,



I can see the faces of everyone...
that love-hate relationship between us and the steel...

It's more like "you-must-be-there-to-feel-it" thingy...

Before
After









M.V. Bunga Mas 10...
I will always remember you...




How it looked like.
How it felt....

YOU AND ME

The unfinished "project" of M.V. Bunga Pelangi Dua~


video
 


YOU AND ME

Do you remember, on the last nite of September~
Do you remember, on the first day of October~
Since that day, my heart
was captured~

You brought,
sunshine into my cloudy days,
Look’n forward to another day,
Makin’ time to stand! still and stay,
You-melt my heart with the words you say^^^

You and me sitting free living life like it's supposed to be,
You and me singing dancing here forever,x2

Do you remember, all the plans we made together?~
Do you remember, we're always there fo_r each other~
Since that day, my heart
was se-cured~

You kept,
makin' the sun rise, each of my days,
making my time flies, everyday,
plann' future all in our ways.
Against all odds and bums along the way^^^

You and me sitting free living life like it's supposed to be,
You and me lips on lips here forever,x2



Do you remember, on the last days of our summer~
Do you remember, how much fun we had together?~
Since that day, my heart
was broken~


You took
My sunshine away,
You promised me you’d stay~
Each day feels longer,
When you left you took my heart away.


You and me sitting free living life like it's supposed to be,
You and me?
I guess nothing lasts forever,x2

Right Here Waiting- Guitar+Harmonica


video


 Ok guys,
here's my FIRST attempt on posting myself playing the harmonica.
Be nice,ok??

Guitar-Sungha Jung (Mp3)
Harmonica-Myself :)






 Right Here Waiting For You -- Richard Marx
Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
Waiting for you

All seafarers are invited to this celebration in Jabatan Laut Malaysia, Port Kelang.

Hierarchy of merchant vessel

 Hi Guys!
And again,
it's been quite some time for me to start blogging again.
okay,
This time it's about the hierarchy of merchant vessel a.k.a the rankings on the ship!!
Everybody always relates sailors as "Captain"
well,
there's a loooong passage to reach that rank,
not as easy as you think.


The "Old man" is the overall incharge of the ship.
From there,
there will be two departments.


Being the Deck Department and Engine Department.
Each Departments are being supervised by Chief Engineer and Chief Officer respectively.


The Departments are self explanatory,
Engine and Deck:


Under the Engine department,
There are 3 sets of scopes.
Electrical, Engineers and Ratings.


Whereas under the Deck department,
There are 3 sets of scopes too.
Catering, Officers and Ratings.




Well,
the picture below gives the better view of it~
:)











Unlike the Navy,
the Merchant Ship crews are mostly focused on multitasking due to the limited bunk or cabins available.
the usual mannings are approximately ranged between 25-30 person.


As for me,
I was the MISC sponsored "ALAM Product".
Went to ALAM( Akademi LAut Malaysia) located in Malacca,
recruited as a cadet.
went for basic trinings there for 1 year,
then i was assigned to sail for 12 months in total onboard :
1) Chemical Tanker- M.T. Bunga Melati Dua
2) Container Vessel-M.V. Bunga Bidara
3) Container Vessel-M.V. Bunga Seroja Dua

After the sea service,
i rejoined the academy for the 3rd year(Final year).


before being certified as an officer,
an oral examination will be conducted by the Marine Department.
After that examination,
i was sent to the sea again as a Fourth officer, serving onboard 
M.V. Bunga Pelangi Dua.
Promotion was given onboard, now holding the rank of a Third Officer.


to date today,
i've been serving as a Third Officer onboard
Just follow the table above,
Still a loooooong journey for me!!
Gambatte2!!!
M.V. Bunga Terasek and now onboard M.V. Bunga Mas 10~

Fishing!!!

The Wedding Vow

The Wedding Vow


When I look into your face,
There’s nothing that I can’t praise.
Your composure, elegance and grace,
Just leaves me speechless and out of place.


Chorus: Before I met you, I was innocent and dull,
But for you, I’d lie, cheat and steal;
Lying beside you, counting the stars,
Cheated my fate, by having you in my life,
Stolen you from the heavens above~

When I gaze into your eyes,
It’s like a piece of paradise.
Numbers won’t fit if there’s a price,
Even words can’t describe something so nice.

Chorus: Before I met you, I was innocent and dull,
But for you, I’d lie, cheat and steal;
Lying beside you, counting the stars,
Cheated my fate, by having you in my life,
Stolen you from the heavens above~

When I swipe my fingers into your hair,
I still can’t believe that we’re a pair.
But, among those guys staring out there,
I promise you; my tender, love and care.




Chorus: Before I met you, I was innocent and dull,
But for you, I’d lie, cheat and steal;
Lying beside you, counting the stars,
Cheated my fate, by having you in my life,
Stolen you from the heavens above,
I believe that, this is what they call “love”~


Something that i wrote when I was onboard MV. Bunga Terasek few months back...
Enjoy~
*blogging from my torchie*

Straight from my Torchie~ >.o

Urmm...
This my 1st attempt to blog from my Torchie! (My Blackberry Torch).

Trying to take the advice from my Little Niecey and be positive by blogging more~
:p

Lately, am feeling very VERY depressed.
FML...
My Lappy is not even functioning well....
Imagine a newly bought RM4K gamer's laptop, ASUS,
It's not working!!
The screen goes blank and the screen will only appear by luck..
Urghh...
It's still under warranty,
But...
The ASUS centre is only available in Kuching(12hours roadtrip)
And in KL(by flight).
Damn it!
I can actually call for the pick up and fix service by the centre,
But,
The office MIGHT call me anytime to sail!!
The dilemma...
It might take days to send it for fixing...
Then, I might sail off without my lappy...
Grrrr.....

Can't even play games>>SKYRIM!!!! I truly missed you...
Blog properly...
Video browsing...
Huh....

Now I'm learning to play guitar...(Plucking, as
Little Niecey told me.)
At the moment, still learning to play BlackBird by The Beatles.
Beautiful song...
I have my own interpretation of the lyrics..
:)

BlackBird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

:)

P/s: Will never give up on you no matter how hard it is...
God, be good to me...
<3

The Step~

Every success is borne off the step,
how else would you know that it's bigger than your grasp?
Like the ignition that is for the fire,
the step that you'll take to go somewhere higher...


Without the foundation of your knowledge and guts,
the step will never be and will never was.
to stand on a loose part on the edge of the balcony,
then your fall will be nothing, but something very silly...


A step is not always about ahead,
a step backwards to see what we've forgot,
never to waste drops of sweats and blood,
for something that bears fruit, it will not...


The step is a planning that is being executed,
will it succed or will it just hurt?
there's no knowing of rising or down the depth,
until you buckle up and take, the step...

The List :)

Urmm....
I pity my blog...
Very abandoned lately!
Few years back,i promised myself to constantly update it if the internet connection permits..
Seems like another promise broken!
Tskk3....

Yeah,
It's already 2012!
Like people always said,
A new year, a new resolution!!

I used to have this friend,
She shared with me about this "list".
A personal to-do-list of self achievement for the year...
After sooo long, it was somehow forgotten like the said friendship~
Will get back on that story...
Anyhow..

Yeah,
The list..
Last year, 2011's list
The list never seemed to exist.
No matter what i say to defend myself, it will just be a pile of excuses...
A couple of things happened....
Ups and downs~
1st thing 1st,
Her...
Yeah, i already broke up with my before-mentioned-in-a-post girlfriend.
Life is simple, but human makes it complicated.
That's what i always say...
Seems like she was not the one...i guess..
Well, suck it up and look ahead,matey!
Shooh2 negativity!
Am single, then!
*winks*

Well, 2011
I sailed officially as an officer,
Means more experience gained.
But...learning is a neverending process, agreed?
That's what my previous Captain said.
Quoted:
"Do you think that i know everything?
No, i'm constantly learning.
Easy way and the hard way!

Easy way, learn from other's mistake,
Hard way, well, face the problem and crawl out of it alive!

There's two ways to be powerful,
1) Success
2) Suck-ass
Which one will you be?
I know lots of them who chose option 2.
You?"

Life is simple indeed,huh?


Ok2,
Back to the list.
This year, aged 24(by the end of the year)
I'm planning big.

1) Buy a house.
Seriously, i'm planning to buy a house,
At least 1.
I already discussed it with my parents,
And will definitely buy a house here, Bintulu as a starter.
If im lucky enough,
Maybe another 1 in Kuching!
:)
I grew up there, so, makes sense,right?

2) Get a FREAKING driver's license!

Shut up!
I still don't have my driver's license,owkay!!
Was too busy with my ship's license and sail all over the place!!
Bwahahaha~
Only now i feel the insecurity and caged without the license...
Trapped here, isolated from the world outside~
Haih...

3) Buy a car...optional, i guess..
Well, it would feel better to have my own car, right?
Then my parents won't be nagging me about the transportation issue~

4) Financial management.
This, my friend, is an important one to achieve!
Been suffering financial problem..well, my own financial, of course, not to depend on my Parents!
Note to self: Credit card is for emergency purposes only!
NEVER increase the credit limitation.

5) Needs VS Guts
Being impulsive as i am, it's highly NOT recommended for me to enter any shops with gadgets This year.
Urmm.... Last year, i think i spent not less than 5k on gadgets alone.
And i even left my wireless speaker on the ship!! due to fear of luggage overweight..
Curse you Jebel Ali, why were there so many gadgets that i bought but don't need!!
Well, at least my dad loves the tablet that i bought!
:)
So, this year, avoid shops selling phones, gadgets, computer accessories, consoles.

6) Self improvement
.
It's kind of sad to look back on how i physically changed after my cadetship.
I admit that im extremely overweight at the moment, (just to give myself the slap on the face)
I should be more consious on what i consume and be more involved in physical activity.

7) Talent?
I shouldn't let any of it go to waste, right?
Just another self to self note:
Learn to play guitar PROPERLY, Improve on the harmonica, Increase more technical skills Playing with my Zippo, Be LESS sensitive on unrelated issues....

8) Perfect Haired, Irresistable Lips, Ooooo~ <3
You're my ultimate goal,
God will lead me in His own way...
It really DOES hurt when you fall again, huh?
:)

9) MAYBE join the choir after returning from my next ship.

Actually i just love the feeling that i get from singing songs that praises the Lord~
Deep inside, i just want to join the group,
But... too much drama there,eh?

10) Next vacation!

Am planning to get all my siblings and parents their passports,
4 x rm300,means rm1200 alone for passports,
Then,
Just bring my family go for vacations outside Malaysia!!
Brunei, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia~
Well, this is not fixed for 2012 though,
But still, worth putting on the list!!

11) Get to the hot page on 9GAG!!!
Ahahaha,
Well,
I'm a 9gagger,
Don't act surprised!
A TRUE 9gagger owns an ACCOUNT, VOTES on vote page, POSTS original posts.
One does not simply call itself "LIKE A BOSS" while doing shitty stuffs, Get it?
Few posts died in the vote page,
But at least i had likes, right?
And it was from complete strangers!
Not from my fb friends..
Urgh~

*this list is open for any changes as in additional not reduction of goals which is considered good for achieving life purposes*


So....
That's all for now..
3rd mate!
Full Ahead!!
:3
