Selamat Berpuasa.

Buy my recommendations, or through my Amazon store. Or get the Young Turks series (all 4 books). Where are those corporate sponsors? Or throw donations at me. I need RM360 to get The Star ePaper.

  • I’m looking for a senior process engineer, 7+ years experience. Also looking for technical safety persons, metering / measurement engineers and other seniors you think will catch my eye.
  • Technip are looking for people, senior engineers, engineers of all ilk.  Visit here.
  • Kebabangan Petroleum Operating Company (KPOC to friends) has a three-page spread. Anyhow, the posts that they hope to fill are too numerous to name. Apply here, or snail mail to: Kebabangan Petroleum Operating Comp Sdn Bhd, Level 52, Tower 2, PETRONAS Twin Towers, KLCC, 50088 KL, Malaysia. Is the sudden surge of posts due to KPOC subtlety telling their existing staff “take a pay cut, or we’ll get fresh meat”? Hah, if you send snail mail, they want you to “indicate the position title at the top of the left corner of the envelope.” I’ll sell you copies of the print advertisement page at RM10/column.

Support your local bookshop!  Bookalicious at The Summit Subang is a good choice. I think they focus on trilogies, quadrilogies, and other ologies. Tell them I sent you, and enjoy the look of perplexity on their faces. Those of you who have dropped my name, thanks!

Food choice of the week? How if you visit Vietnam, how about visiting and updating GoHalalVietnam! for your food needs. For your other needs, talk to your local tour guide/ concierge / man on the street.

Some books for you to turn those bad numbers’ frown upside down.
