Personal | Life Update

group of people standing on brown soil
Assalamualaikum and greetings!

WOW, my last update was in August 2019! Life was so hectic for me since 2019 because I was in my final semester to finish my studies. Alhamdulillah, I managed to complete my studies in January 2020. I successfully finished my final semester with flying colour results. Fast forward, I managed to secure a job as a Civil Engineer at a sub-contractor company. 

At first, I find it was quite challenging for me to be in the construction site for the whole day. I was and still worried about my own safety and even thinking to buy myself a pepper spray. They said to not trust anyone 100% onsite. No matter if they are construction workers or the staff. I hope you know what I mean, working around men all the time. Sometimes, I need to be onsite until night. This challenging working environment is seriously mentally drained. If I am not used to working this hard, I would quit my job after a week started working.

But lucky for me, I found myself a very kind and helpful boss and senior where I am not afraid to ask questions and to make a mistake. FYI, I made a lot of mistakes but they said that everything will be fine since I am still learning. Alhamdulillah.

Other than that, I still managed to keep drawing since drawing is still and will always be my hobby. Hoping that I can find some times to post my artworks here. Actually, writing in this blog is not for popularity or anything, but for myself. It is a diary where everyone can read. The posts in this blog were my past memories, good or bad. 

I seriously hope that I can still be committed to this blog in the future. Post more with helpful content for engineering students. For me, I love to have someone who is willing to share with the students since the students need to be more exposed to the industries and to help them to choose their course for further their studies or to choose a career path. So, those who want to ask me questions. I am more willing to help you by sending me an email or contact me through my social media accounts. My nosiness might be helping someone to choose their path wisely.

See ya!

Civil Engineering | Survey Camp At Kem MSN Saujana Asahan, Melaka

Assalamualaikum and welcome to Jellove!

I have been wanting to share my experiences when I went to the survey camp for a very long time ago. It was the last field trip for degree and I was super excited. The pre-requisite subject that the student needs to take before attend this survey camp is Geomatics Engineering. In my case, since I was a diploma student, I didn't have to take this subject anymore for a degree. So, my skills in surveying have rusted and need to be polished. But, since I revised by reading the notes and do some calculations.  The camp was held for 10 days, and there were 4 sessions with a different date.

//Topics and instruments that used throughout survey camp
  1. Levelling/Two-Peg Test (Staff, bubble, measuring tape and  electronic level, tripod)
  2. Traverse (tripod, prism, total station, measuring tape, nails and picket)
  3. Tachymetry (tripod, prism, total station, nails and picket)
  4. Setting Out (tripod, prism, total station, measuring tape, nails and picket)

Thank god that I don't forget to bring along my calculator, notebook, laptop, and a copy of lecture notes because I might have some difficulties if I forget to bring these. A laptop still needed although the report needs to be done by using handwriting because it was needed to process the data by using SDR Mapping and AutoCAD. 

//Other important stuff that I brought
  1. Medicine (fever, flu, pain reliever, allergy, etc)
  2. Skincare (sunblock, moisturizer, face wash, etc)
  3. Sanitary pad
  4. Mineral water and food (Instant noodles, bread, and biscuits)
  5. Iron and water boiler
  6. Shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, toothbrush and powder/liquid detergent

When I was at the survey camp, I always feel so hungry since we were working for the whole day. We ate at the dining hall and the food served as a buffet. So, you know what comes next. Always be prepared. Other than that, to save space for my bag, I brought just a few clothes and wash the clothes every day. So, I don't have so many dirty clothes at the end of the survey camp.

I choose session 4 (the last session) and it was the best. All the students were separated by a group of 5 or 6 students. It was fun although it was tiring and exhausting at the moment because I had to carry heavy instruments every day.


This was my every day's view. I was so lucky because my group was placed near the lake with the mountain view. The sunrise and sunset were so breathtaking. But, near my working area, there were no trees to keep myself away from the sunlight. It was hella hot at noon.

I was posing with the instruments which are Total Station and Prism.

Little that I know that this fire camp would be an obstacle to do Setting Out 😂

After I went back to UTHM, I was so determined to do something related to Surveying for my Final Year Project. Dream comes true! hahaha! So this was my experience in Survey Camp. How about you? Do you have any camp for your course while studying at university?

Viral | Whales, Tiger And Sun Bear Seen Roaming Around In Terengganu

Assalamualaikum and welcome to Jellove!

Isn't it exciting to see that suddenly these animals appear out of nowhere? Yes. You also can see it as a joke. 
"Aku dah kata ada yang main jumanji" - anon
Try to open your eyes, and see in different ways. Did you ever wonder why these animals came out from their natural habitat? did you? If you haven't, think now. Read this post. You don't need to study science or environment to see this issue. We, as greedy humans are destroying their habitat. Their habitat is in danger. We are destroying our ecosystem by building more and more shopping malls, commercial areas, and houses. Didn't we have more than enough shopping malls? Especially in the city. 

The first issue was the orcas spotted near Terengganu and also there are so many whales found dead on Iceland beach. The whales were spotted by the Petronas staff 16 July 2019. I think that maybe they are migrated to find a place which suitable temperature. This protected species sighted near Terengganu waters for the first time.

The second issue appears to be two tigers (Harimau Belang) shows up at Terengganu and have been strolling around on the road. However, the tiger appears to be tame and attacking human. The tiger might be someone's pet. According to theborneopost.com, this is the third incidents that happen in Terengganu. The first one was in February 2016, a tiger (Harimau Belang) was found dead after involving in an accident with an MPV at Kemaman, Terengganu.  The second one was in November 2018 where a black panther was found dead after being hit by a car near Dungun, Terengganu.

The latest arising issue should be a sun bear has been caught after a week with the tiger and whales issues. Says.com stated that a sun bear appearing to be around the village feasting some coconuts, jackfruits and honey. However, according to Says.com, there are still 2 sun bears on the loose, and the captured sun bear will be released to their natural habitat soon after a health check by the veterinary.

This is not a joke. We are being blinded with money and greeds until we do not realise that we actually have been destroying our ecosystem, the animal's natural habitat and also our earth. Look at those pitiful eyes, they are screaming for help. They are hungry and lost. Although some of them are predators, but the real predator is us. The evil one is us. Stop all these fights between humans and join hands together to conserve our nature, our home, our air to breath, and our water to drink.  It is so so sad to see that we, as a human stupidly blinded with money and greeds until we lost our humanity.
