Practical in Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR)

I have already finished my practical last two week and now it time to start my final year in UMS. During my practical in JKR Sarawak, there is a place that I used to visit. It is the resource centre in JKR Head Quarters. I’m a person that not used to go library however during my practical, things have change. The main reason I always visit the resource centre is that I can view the nice scene of Kuching inside the resource centre. I like the raining view the most.

The resource centre is located at 14th floor of Wisma Saberkas. Well, I’m not just coming here for the view but also because I need resource to finish my given task. In the resource centre, I can find reference books, wiring regulation, the British Standard and the Malaysia Standard and also other book related to mechanical engineering and chemical engineering. There’s also book about management and accounting. The environment in the resource centre is really good for me to finish my task. It is a good experience for me to do practical in JKR.

There’s a table located just beside the window. This is my favorite sit.

These are part of the resource centre.

Breaking Dawn Stephenie Meyer

The fourth book for Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer is Breaking Dawn. This is also the last book for twilight series because the fifth book, Midnightsun is only repeating the first book but from the point of view of Edward Cullen. In this book, Bella marry to Edward and they went for a honeymoon. Unexpectedly, Bella pregnant and this is not a normal baby. It is a baby of half human and half vampire.

They return to folk and Dr Cullen lie to Charlie that Bella caught a serious disease where no visitor is allowed. Jacob Black thought that Bella already dead and wanted to revenge for her. He when to the house of the Cullen and finally found that she is alive and still human but pregnant. The baby grew fast in her body and feed on blood. The membrane cover the baby is as hard as the vampire skin which makes all of them believe that the baby will tear out from Bella stomach and bring her to die. Edward worry that Bella will die after give birth to the baby, he wanted to stop her but Bella insist to give birth the baby and look for Rosalie help.

Finally the baby is born. Bella almost dead at the moment however Edward manage to change her into vampire in time. Now, Bella have her new life as Vampire and own a half human half vampire baby Renesmee. Irina a vampire from the Tanya though that the baby is a vampire baby and reported this to the Volturi. Having a vampire baby is violating the rule of the vampire world. The Volturi come to Folk for the justice. For the Volturi, they wanted to use this chance to eliminate the Cullen family and Aro wants Alice’s talent so much. The Cullen ask their friend from all over the world to be their witness that the baby girl is not a vampire child but a half human and half vamoire child. All their friends gather in Folk and agree to become witness after the see Renesmee.

The Volturi had come to Folk, the Cullen prove to the Volturi that they did not violate the vampire rule. However, the Volturi which to eliminate the Cullen so much that they try to find an excuse to take action. While the three ancient discussing their decision, their follower, the twin witches, Jane and Alec attack the Cullen with their talent. However, it is stop by Bella Shield. The Volturi finally retreat when they know they got no chance to win the fight with Bella shield. Bella, Edward, Renesmee and the other entire member live happily ever after.

After reading this, I feel a bit disappointed again because the Volturi had not been defeated and eliminate although we already know they are. I really wish so much to see all the Volturi guard being killed. Throughout the story, Emmett is known as the strongest among the Cullen but the book never talk about his fight to show that how strong he is. Overall, this is really a great Novel and worth for a read.

A Short Trip to Lundu Sarawak

Lundu is town in Kuching division at south west of Sarawak. This is my first time when to Lundu. Lundu is a place famous with the beach call Siar Beach, Gunung Gading National Park and Keropok. Gunung Gading National Park is the home of numerous rare plants including the world's largest flower, the Rafflesia tuan-mudae (bunga pakma) which can stretches nearly one meter in width during full bloom. The peak of Mound Gading is about 900 meters high. My visit here is neither for the purpose to visit the beach nor the National Park but got some job to be done here. After finished the job, we went to buy keropok at the road side stall near the bridge. The famous keropok maker makes keropok at their house in Lundu. I’m not sure that they are sold here or not but I’m sure you can get it straight from their house if you want. It is located somewhere near the stall here and I’m sorry that I didn’t take the picture of the house. However it is very easy to recognize because you can see the many keropok outside their house if the weather is good.

Beside the stall, there is a river. There used to have ferry service here to take passenger to the opposite or from opposite site to here. Since the bridge had been build, this service no longer requires. Now the hut here is used by visitor to view the river. For people who like to fish, I think it is not so suitable for fishing due to the tow poles here.

On the way back, we use another route which is to Rambangan if I’m not mistaken to back to Kuching. By using this route, we need to take a ferry. In Kuching, we don’t have a change to take ferry, I think this is only my second time using a ferry. My first time riding ferry is at Asajaya.

The worker on the ferry is fishing the small fish in the river. I don’t think they eat it because it is very small. Most probably they use it as bait for bigger fish at some other places.

When we reach the opposite site, we continue our journey back to Kuching. Here it is, we left crossing the boundary into Kuching from Lundu. The weather seem like going to rain and unfortunately that the car break down somewhere near Matang Wildlife Centre. We have to wait JKR’s mechanic come to fix the car. However, all this did not making me late for going home. I’m thinking to pay a visit in Gunung Gading National Park someday although my colleague told me that there nothing special in the national park. Need Crazyfool to bring me there with his four wheel drive!!!
