i'm not sure about the details, but what i know for a fact, since its first oil, the OIM and its superintendents are all mat salleh. being the first, deepwater, FPSO... we malaysian are suck in recognizing our own people.. kononnye orang kita takde experience...

and worry no more!

after five years, we gonna have the first malaysian onboard as one of the product superintendent. the only malaysian for now. and what made me 'prouder' is he's a malay malaysian.. okay la, his mum is chinese-adopted-by-malay-families, his dad is malay, he married to a beautiful hot malay girl, and blessed with three smart brilliant children..

never have i been more proud that i could be!

ok, he'll be in for a 3 month probation, he'll do fine. just can't wait for him to come back for a good long congratulation hug!
