Something about me

My name is U Jian. In chinese, it means “the key of friendship”.

Key of Friendship

Key of Friendship

I was born in a small family in Bukit Mertajam, a very small but crowded town in Penang state, West Malaysia.

I studied in Jit Sin, one of the top and famous school in Penang as well as Malaysia (but the problem is I’m not the top student). JSHS is a Chinese secondary school, and that’s why my Chinese is much better than English.

I graduated from UTM, one of the government owned university which strive to be world class university, but, in fact,what they did were always toward the opposite direction. 🙂

UTM is famous for its engineering courses among others local university, but yet, a typical Malaysia style university – “first class infrastructure, third class mentality”.

That’s why till now Malaysia Government still wondering why Malaysia’s universities’ ranking become worse and worse every year…

After my graduation and I work as a Mechanical Design Engineer in a Japanese MNC which located in Singapore.

The working life in Singapore makes me realized how terrible is in Malaysia.

At here, I no need to worry about my personal safety; no need to worry how the government wasting my income tax; no need to worry how the government carry out some white elephant planning (like Port Klang Free Zone)….etc.

SP

Quoted what Seow Pheng (one of my best friend) said, “Time is flying away and never wait for us….”,

I also realized that I’m getting older and older because of his grey hair. Ha!

Since I started work, everyday I drown in work and overtime. Then because of SP, I realized that it’s meaningless if day pass day like this.

I know SP more than 17 years since secondary school.

We joined the same school activity (Red Crescent Society), entered the same University (UTM), studied the same course (Mechanical Engineering), stayed in the same house during university life, work in the same place (Singapore), and now, though although we are fall apart, but what he leave in my mind will not disappear.

I started this blog partly is also because of him..

Hope you enjoy my blog and may happiness be with you always.

    Is this true? Hope to hear from you soon.
    CHEERIO!!

  4. Thanks for reading my blog.

    First of all, it is pointless for me to make some false fact in my blog. So I think it is safe for you to offer your trust. ha!

    To work in Singapore here, what I think is more essential is how do you look at this country.

    From the past few years that I have stayed in Singapore, it makes me realize why that Malaysia is fall far behind Singapore even Malaysia have plenty of natural resources.

    No matter in terms of public security, government management, university management and etc..There a still a long way for Malaysia to catch up.

    I think we can discuss this deeper if you are interested. 🙂

  5. By chance I opened your blog. It seams to be so interesting. I hope that you have more writing in English.
