Yes the perfect word. In fact i cant find any better word to describer the situation im in right now.  I can feel the wrath of 2018 after merely 17 days into it sharp and edgy to the point of ready to be used for slaughter.. Its better to describe as my condition at office right now. An 8 years veteran who has a vast knowledge and who has been delegated to transfer that knowledge to me will leave in a very short period of time due to personal issues. The "scariest worst" part of it, the knowledge that i have so far attained are merely 10 to 15%. The "terrifying worst" part of it, no single documentation by this veteran. The "disastrous worst" part of it, no backup personal with same knowledge up till now. The "apocalyptic worst" part of it, i have to meet a bunch of people who are waiting for an outcome where my limited 15% knowledge will need to speak out which is absolutely insufficient to cater..

To sum up..
scariest worst part
terrifying worst part
disastrous worst part
apocalyptic worst part

These are the worst of the worst part of my open eyed nightmare right now.. Whether i will come out of this turbulence or sink down fast, only time will tell. But for now, ive prepared to face what ever things coming on my way.  With or without life support..

A look back at 2017.. for me its a challenging year. Full of multiple zones of complication, emotional distress.. and financially.. well distress as always... The only thing keeping me together is none other then my 2 years old son..

Job change is an interesting turn of event back in July. A big change that ive decided right away.. No regrets on that. Apart from that.. others are all the same.. no change.. i just wish 2018 a bit more emotionally happier and also as always.. "financially" stable one..

Goodbye 2017... 18 is around the corner now..

Wishing all my blog reader, a joyous Christmas!!

Christmas brings family and friends together; it helps us appreciate the love in our lives we can often take for granted. May the true meaning of the holiday season fill your heart and home with many blessings.

The movie that comes to my mind on every Christmas.. "Home Alone"! A simple american comedy film portrayed by  Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, a boy who is always accidentally left behind by his family on their vacation.. It even goes on for a few sequels.. All with the same genre and beautifully played.. Love it! :)

I can’t believe two years has passed since you came into this world. Time flew so fast maybe because we enjoy, we really did enjoy, watching you grow up. You fascinate us with your every little milestone. Happy 2nd birthday to the most joyful, sweet kid that I know. Now look at you and all you’ve learned! You laugh and play and learn in your own special way. Joy to you on your birthday!

My Dear Son Divesshwaar,
Always stay happy and content in Life. On this special day, i wish you to remain healthy, wealthy and happy always, appa wishing you a very happy birthday! Love you so much!

Its going to be a month on my journey of working at HP. I can feel ive settled down quite well here. Things that i never before learn looks miraculously interesting to learn here in HP. Oceans of stuffs to be precise. Accesses's, meetings, training's are all coming over my way wave by wave.. Basically im pretty much occupied with stuffs.

But one thing that is affecting me pretty much is the loneliness. I hate being left alone as it makes me sad and rethink my utmost decision. But im accepting it in a positive way as time is the ultimate factor which will all change.

At HP i has few to none known faces from my past work life so my time at HP are all surrounded within me. Unlike my time at my previous company be it Intel or Seagate where i was surrounded by plenty of friends.. i felt like a family.. At my current place, sometimes during lunch break i just took my car drive around the area, talking to myself, listening to my car audio..  i know its weird, well thats the only thing i can do.. cause no one around to be with..

Hmm this loneliness is really killing me. :(
on Monday, July 24, 2017
As the image says.. Today I'm stepping forward on a new ladder of career in my Life. Going thru the tides of new rough waves in an unexplored ocean.. and opening the door to ... Hewlett Packard (HP). Yes im entering HP and yes i will definitely miss Seagate. The place where i spend the last +7 years digging for new skills and knowledge!

As for now.. Hello HP!
on Thursday, July 20, 2017
Seagate. I came to this company without knowing anything about it. With little to none of good things that i heard. Many people stopped me to join this company with a reason, they are not stable, they will close down soon, joining a hard disk company a bad thing and etc. But i stepped in. Stepped in sincerely knowing that i would make a difference for my self. Knowing that i will succeed. Knowing that those who stopped me, will feel proud of me.. and yes those things did happen. Before joining this company, ive been in a living hell.. referring to my life in Intel. Stress, Time and Agony of employment ripped me apart. But as soon as Seagate called me, i said yes.. and here i am 7 Years-4 Months & 10 Days (2689 days) as a dedicated employee for this wonderful company. But like a wise man says..  every beginning has an ending.. and like the say..today it will mark my last day officially at Seagate. Tomorrow i will begin fresh, i will woke up early and drive my car to a never before explored land and enter a new base which i strongly believe will thought me with goods and bad's of next chapter of my career. I hope, the time i cherished in Seagate will be a strong cemented will of success for me to face and survive at HP.

My life continues...

(2010 - 2017)

on Friday, June 23, 2017
Oh yes! Finally the much awaited job offer arrived and Ive Accepted the offer! I can't believe my eyes to say that ive been waited so much to hear the golden question of my life.. "do you consider the offer".. and i right away say YES!! Which company, Where and when? Il post them up very soon after i finish the deal up with my current employment. Just to make sure this is a smooth sail and no any hickups in between. For now, im in cloud-o-9!

Wish me luck!

Eventhou he is not with me today and to play with his grandson and eventhou i do not like him that much, he is still my dad. I have to thank him for brought me to this world, to let me see wonderful things and most of all to somehow to make me who i am today. His character and examples may be bad, but his will of life will always let me be admired.

Dedicated to my dad.. Mr. S. Sivanathan. Thanks Dad!

Watched 'Gold' the movie today. Quite intresting movie potraying on how a guy been conned for gold mining business and been left alone in the end to be ravaged by investors, banks, commisions, FBI till at the end..dead all by alone(*in true real life). The greed for money, the strong will to success.. perpetrating of stock fraud.. carries a good lesson of how karma returns back extremely ruthless! Btw, this movie is based on a true story and in real the company name 'Bre-X'.

My rating: (6.5 over 10 star)

I know it seems norm for all to face, been face or had been a victim of bullying in some point of their life. Mostly during their school times. But this act can lead to bigger problem for the victim. The worst.. death. There are so many cases of bullying out there and majority of us doesn't seems to care much about it, because we will think that as part of growing up process. Especially in schools. But when that involve death then we will be regretting to not stop the act, which by then will be to late.

I'm pretty sure my son will face the same bullying tune at some point of his school time, but im fully determined to be there for him and stop the act whenever it surface by all mean possible!

This post is dedicated to T.Nhaveen (A victim of school friends abuse who have died yesterday, who dreamed to become a successful music composer.) & ZulFarhan (A victim of a defense school newbie who just joined the academy). Both dreamed to achieve bigger things in their life, unfortunately their soul was ripped apart by the bullies. Rest in peace my brothers! :(

I wasnt a game freak. Until i met few of my ex office coulege's who are a real game freak. They transformed me from a non-gamer or nerd-gamer to a game freak! Thats when i start to hook up with this so called single person shooter or simulation games. My very first game where i started pretty much would be, Counter Strike condition zero (love to kill those AI terrorists), Diablo III (scared to play this game initially due to the dark nature of the game play), Age Of Empires and Age Of Mythology the titans (all time favorite). But out of all this, there is one particular game that will forever be etched in my memory. Which would be "Unreal Tournament (GOTY Edition)". If i remember correctly those days when i open up my PC at home, I'll be hooked in-front of my PC playing this games for like 10 to 12 hours a day! Thats freaked up right...

My mom would scold me pretty much for spending more time playing this games then do something meaningful.. But you know youth.. and the eagerness to try out something fun made me hooked to this game pretty badly.. Well think about that made me feel want to start over those game days now, but time for family eats up pretty much of my personal time.. nahh forget about it!

Just a memoir.. :)
Today it marked 7 years ive joined Seagate. Ive left Intel behind in search of a new work place,  new life, a new knowledge and finally here i'am.. 7 years! Its been a hell of journey.. hi's and low's of my career.. I never felt regret for leaving Intel where ive worked for 10 years!

I just wish my next destination will be a wonderful ones and more challenging ever. But i made a strong personal rule where i should not be at a place for more then 3 or 5 years at most. Lets see how things go.. :)

Lion. A beautiful movie portraying a longing  love of a man to find his roots away from his adaptive parents. Based on a real story, the movie potrays a deep emotion of an emphatic return of a son to his mother.. He searched and searched and searched his root...

This movie is an absolute proof of truth how technology can help mankind in anyway possible. The power of Google Earth! Never give up!

My personal rating: 6 / 10

Watched "Passengers" today. And I wonder what is it feels like been deserted on a spaceship and with a timeline of 90 years to reach a destination.. Wow its beyond any of my imagination possible.. I cant withstand an hour without seeing any humans around me...  and 90 years.. that's way way way wayyyy beyond my bodily acceptance!!!

Passengers.. a very nice move! Fabulous VFX.. excellent narration.. and awesome script! A must watch movie! Good hit from director Morten Tyldum.

My personal rating:  8 / 10.



Couple of months back around late november last year ive accidentally dropped my phone. But managed to get it repaired and restored to its normal self.. had a screen crack at the time. But after the screen replace i didn't notice any issues with my phone. It was behaving normal as how a smart phone would be. That changed all together couple of days back. Ive found it exquisitely weird that my phone keeps opening and closing apps by itself. Initially my thought was either a Trojan horse or bloatware creeps in my phone and causing the problem. But i noticed the screen itself is behaving abnormally. Its behaving as if someone keeps pressing the screen for which caused it to behave strange. Since im a gadget freak person, such a behavior is a total non-tolerable for me. I hate it! A gadget behaving such way!.. This is when i decided (today) to change my smartphone. I love Asus so much cause of its technology... that i intended to change it back to the same brand..

Today i went to a mobile shop and booked a brand new Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. This will replace my existing Asus Zenfone 2 Deluxe.. yea 1 generation ahead..

Moral of the story: Dont drop your phone.. If you drop it, replace it! Dont repair it! Their life will end if you drop it due to the nature of the intense circuitry and integrated embedded chips. Trust me folks!

Happy Pongal!! A small snippets about pongal.. Pongal is the festival celebrated by people of Tamilnadu, India. It is also known as a harvest festival celebrated mainly in the first month of the year. Although im a Malaysian why do i celebrate this? Cause my ancestors are from Tamilnadu and the celebration has been culturally pass down from generations to generations. In fact all the tamil people celebrate this festival! :)


A beautiful,bright and delighted day,
sun entered bright to intense the ray.
crop harvested to cheer the smiles,
come together and enjoy the life.
kites flying high to touch the happiness,
till mangled with sweet to spread sweetness.
Time to enjoy the moment with full intensity
 
Wishing all a Happy Pongal!

The first post of 2017. Just barely 8 days and i can feel the wrath of 2017 sharp and edgy! I had a terrible pain on my tooth couple of days back. A visit to the dentist and he uncovered a hidden tooth all the way at the back of my upper wisdom tooth, and it had decayed quite badly. The one and only solution which was given to me, is the removal! For all my life, never did i imagine a visit to a dentist and a pull of my tooth..

Well it went well, thanks to the professionalism of the dentist, the decayed tooth has been removed. I  did ask the doctor to gave me the tooth.. Hehehe as a souvenir of course :P Well it had been with me for nearly 37 years. I know its gross.. but i don't see a reason to throw something which has been part of me since im born. I'm in the process of preserving it! :)

That would be enough
For every day of this year!

2016, for me  i could describe it as a year full of emotion, sadness, unstable year. The only factor that keeps me running is my son! His arrival back in late 2015 brings me a new meaning, a new window, a new happiness that flows thru me that enables me to forget those badly stuffs that comes the way..

A few key events that i could able to review in happiness is our 2nd short travel to India back in June and a couple of short travel to the island of Langkawi.. Also not to forget my sons 2 major celebration. Which is his naming ceremony held in somewhere around March and his 1st year birthday celebration in December. Others.. not that much that i could remember.. Some i tend to forget.. "trying anyway".. and some i just wish the event never happened at all.

Well the window will be closing down for 2016 in a few hour from now..
I'm very much anticipating and looking forward for 2017. Health is a big concern for me.. i need to get things up and start to workout and lead a healthy lifestyle other then looking ahead for a job change of course and also..."obviously" stable money income which im hoping for every year! Yea, praying for this 3 things to shine bright on me.. Lets see what 2017 has in store for me.

Till then My Life continues....... :)
Good bye 2016!

Recently i got to know about the fabulous all time hidden (..well .. hidden to me) function of an app from Google itself.. "Google Contacts" from a working coulege of mine. From ages (well to my mobile age to be precise) ive been having a hell of a havoc time keeping my mobile contacts alive! Yes, by my statement of alive, i mean keeping it in one place. Which i failed to do so. Let me be more to the point. Well ive lost my mobile device several times in my life. That is deeply painful to me, cause there was a time during my early mobile days i save alots of my friends and family contacts on my mobile. But when i lost the mobile device itself, i felt devastated! Cause i couldn't retrieve any of them. No chance! Because im talking about the era of "Nokia 3210" (my 1st mobile device), where SIM card roams like a king, built in storage has not yet born, SD cards was not yet invented, google drive.. never heard before. So the only option i have was to write every single contacts on a piece of paper!!! Isn't that ancient enough! i felt like those days was a mobile stone age! It is!

Back to the current era. "Google contacts". I cant believe myself that till to date i have synced and saved all my contacts (around ~259 contacts) to google contacts and now there are virtually '0' contacts on my SIM & on my mobile device storage. When i login, generally on any place in this planet earth using my google account on a pc or on any android device, i could able to retrieve all my contacts in a split second! How cool was that?! Its awesome piece of a technology thanks to the mega giant google! You guys rock! I just wished you guys came in much early.. like back in late 90's. That would save me a lots of my contacts from perish away..!

Thank you Google!
