Peak Hour & Lost Contacts

Peak hour
I was told by my manager last week that there is a new time schedule. Everybody in my team has to come at 10:30 am in the morning except him where he has to come at 9 am. Therefore, I left my house this morning at 8 am, where I estimated I’ll reached to my workplace at 9, one hour plus earlier before I start to work. (I like to take my time to walk slowly; surf some internet news or magazine site before I start to work.) When I hop into the 8:30 am STAR LRT train, there is no sit left for me. For me, I was surprise cause I usually able to get a sit when I took the 7:30 am train. Then it gets even worse after the train has passed 3 stations where people keep coming and there’s no one getting out. It becomes so packed like a can of sardine until I can see people skip the train after there is no more space to squeeze in. (The roof, perhaps?) After this experience, I realized that there is a peak hour for this train which I didn’t know. I’ll take the 9 am train tomorrow and see what will happen then. Hopefully I can find a sit then. (Else I have to stand for at least ten stops before I reached my station)

Lost contact
I had an easy task for today’s work, where I was needed to do a documentation review. The truth is, it was boring. It will get excited if there was an emergency on the software and the documentation is needed desperately. Anyway, the review is needed to be done before it will be release for the customer. Since it’s not an urgent task, I login into a community site, which I not really active on it, just to kill the bore after reading couple of technical pages. I was lucky that after searching into my friend’s community, I found my secondary school classmate wedding photo. It was like nth years that we didn’t contact to each other. From the photo, I start digging and found some long lost contacts as well. It is understandable why this would happen (sadly) because I didn’t go back to Kuantan (my hometown) after I was graduated from my secondary school. All my relative, college and university are in KL. My parent usually came to KL instead we (children) go back to Kuantan for any event celebration. Beside that, I didn’t get any contact number or address from them before I left my school. Anyway, it’s great to see the newly wed couple and the others as well. Thanks to the extra friend community that helped me find back those long lost contacts.

As expected, the 9am train does have more sits.
