Instead of blabbering what I’m doing in the lab, I’ll jabber on what I do out of the lab. But before that I’ll start on my daily routine.
After waking up, wash up, head to Outram Park where shuttle bus will be waiting for me at 0750. My pals could always witness me chasing the bus frantically, along the way to the bus stop, as I always reached there on the dot (I need to wake up earlier, as I don’t wana look stupid chasing the bus every morning then perspire profusely and stink the whole bus with my sweat after chasing the bus)!
I’ll took my nap on the bus as I had late night preparing my report, reading some journal the night before & not forgetting practicing my guitar (for like 15mins, that explained why I’m way behind my pals over at guitar lesson T__T). Where were we? Right, on the bus =,=, after bout 25mins, I’ll reached the entrance to JI and will be awaken from my dreamland. I’ll need to tap card like tapping (ez-link card at MRT) before entering JI itself. Then the bus will continue to bring us to the company/institute located right the coast of JI. 0830 then.
At the company, swiping of card again (claimed to be to ensure our safety, but the fact is to check what time we clock in and out). The 2nd thing I do is to rush to place my stuff in locker then aim straight for the TOILET. My bladder was at its brim then after drinking 600mL of water for the passed 1 hour (this is standard procedure for me, think my body is conditioned to that, as I realized 400mL of water left in my 1L bottle every morning and I never purposely drink exactly 600mL!).
Thereafter will be drinking milo from this 6 in 1 dispensing machine! That the thing I love best in the company. Break time I will have café mocha. Intermediate break have milo again. Sometime I mix them like café mocha with espresso, but it just tasted like diluted espresso. Well anyway the 6 are Nescafe sugar with milk, Nescafe black, cappuccino, milo, café mocha (my favorite) and espresso. =]]]] Man can’t express how I darn love that machine! LOL
Then lab time . . . experiment. I tell you man those seniors in the lab are so PRO that they never used glove when handling sample, I meant is fine when handling non-toxic stuff, but even when handling chemicals like phenol (carcinogenic), they still use BARE HAND!! And left the phenol in open air overnight (never pour away)!!! And at 1 time spill and kena hand, but they were like ‘its ok’!!! those sight just baffled me.
-Perhaps the rush of finishing the experiment that safety is overlook. -
Break time, food ok at reasonable price, but will be having Chinese economical food for 4mths!!!! There only 1 food store there, once in a while they have fish n chips, roti john but none interest my taste bud.. .
Back to lab . .. .experiment, once in while our supervisor (DR) will pop-by to ‘inspect’ us and 1 time was caught ‘red-handed’ (me and XP were reading some blog over the internet, then he pop-by behind us!!!) but guess is alright, cuz we had nothing to do in the lab at that point of time.
Then time to go home!!! (-time do passed fast when you really got something to do-)knock off at 1730, 1700 strictly for Friday only @__@
Nap on bus again~ eyes were closed but my mind was awake for some reasons, perhaps I don’t wana miss my stop~
Home prepares report after dinner, 2300 in room doing misc stuff then sleep then the routine continues . . . sound boring but I beginning to adapt to and start ‘appreciating’ it!!
Hope I’m not too late to grasp that particular flower blowing in the wind~
