I was going planning to get off work on time, make a delicious dinner for myself, complete writing and finally post an all words, “Why I…” series post today. I actually have that in draft for a week now, writing a bit a day and I expected to complete it today. At least that was the plan.
In reality, it is almost 9.00 PM as I am writing this now, and I just got back home from work. And I am absolutely bushed and cannot think straight anymore to complete writing that post. So what I am going to do today, is show you another Youtube video while waiting for my dinner to be ready from the oven.
I’m not going to blog about my dinner tonight because I have done something similar and blogged about it before. In fact I have done it many many times since. For all intents and purposes, if you want to know how I prepare my dinner tonight and how it looks like, you can click here instead. It would look something like that.
Anyway, let’s talk about the Youtube video. The video I am going to share today is nothing like what I have shared before. Today the video is going to be something related to my work. I believe most of you who have hung around here for long enough would have already deduced which company I am currently working for, and I have never had any controversial things to say about work, so I guess it is fine to actually reveal to you which company I work for.
Here we go…
If you want me to summarize what the video is about in layman terms, this video teaches you how to use a function generator (a signal generating electronic device) to perform water magic in front of a camera.
But why I really want to show you this video is because of the person in this video. You see, I am a test engineer. My job is to develop test systems to test products such as that function generator before they get shipped out to customers. The man in the video used to be the senior test engineer in our US facility. He was my mentor. No wait, actually he still is. He has since moved on to a marketing role of Youtube engineer, making educational videos such as this one.
Actually, he is not only a work mentor, he is also a good mentor for me outside of work. He taught me important life lessons, lessons such as: how to get a free monthly membership from Netflix, how to hunt for great bargains when shopping, how to conquer my fear of online shopping, how to forget about premium factory outlets and head straight to flagship stores to get the best deals for Coach and those things, etc. Things that I would NEVER EVER learn from a fellow Malaysian. It was great!
So I think I should promote his video in my blog and get him maybe 3 or 5 more views. Watch it, it is quite cool!
On a totally unrelated note, he used to be single when I first joined the company. I know for a fact that most single ladies from our Penang office thinks he is as good looking as Daniel Wu or Andy Lau.
