My Alaskan Summer 2010 (3)

Its almost a month since I stopped working! A part of me still can't believe that I'm actually back in Malaysia. Thinking back, I kinda miss processing fish (in a weird way). I did had tonnes of fun every now and then during work though, which is one of the reasons I'm missing work!

Theres this Polish guy who worked beside me when I was chopping of salmon heads. At first I was kinda intimidated by him when I know he is gonna work beside me. AND I HAVE A VALID REASON FOR FEELING THAT WAY OKAY! He is freaking 193cm tall! Hahah!

Great partner though ;)

Big and nice! (before I chop its head!)

Sorry fishy =X

Yeah, he had to stand like that coz he was too tall for that machine LOL!


When fish processing was about to come to an end, there really wasn't much work for us. Our company gave us more hours by asking us to clean totes. Those were also quite enjoyable moments! We got to work under the warm sun~ I could wear just a t-shirt and shorts for work!

I don't get much sunlight during fish processing alright!

Tote washing! *scrub scrub*

Imba tall Polish dudes =\

I don't really have much pictures of us working in the plant. The only period I fling my camera out to work is towards the last few days of work. Most of the time I'll pass it to people who are free to help me snap pics around while I work.

It gets troublesome though.

Good thing about work is that we get breaks every 2 hours or so. I really really REALLY look forward to break/lunch/dinner times everyday! Those are verrrrryyyy comfortable breaks! Fish processing caused lotsa sore muscles kay! -.- But theres this friend of mine who often offer quite PAINFUL comfortable massages >.>

Thanks, DJ x_x

Waiting to start work after break~

It really is tiring. So these happened quite often :P

Speaking of fun, there were days that we go to the beach in a bunch just to party around! It occurred on days which had less work~ (or days which any random drunkard wants to drink real bad LOL)
Just a pic of how we start things off and I'll save the stories for another time. (or never ever)

The big boss who made it all happen :D



My Alaskan Summer 2010 (2)

life at the cannery couldn't be any more boring. It will get tiring when there is too much work or otherwise, boring if there isn't much work. It is because of such boredom that people start playing random games just to kill time. Who would have thought that these little things we do to kill time could be so much fun! :P

In fact, the salmon seasons are like a scientific SIN graph (sry me nerd boii). They come and go in such pattern which gave us so much free time at a certain period. Besides playing ping pong most of the time, we play a little card game once in a while where the loser gets "punished" >=) .

Working in a fish processing, I can ask for fish to cook. Salmon is very expensive in malaysia, of course I spammed fish like crazy! Nah, not as much as you think actually, only occasionally =)

Sometimes I would get too lazy to cook anyway. Cooking itself is fine, washing the dishes is not something I like to do. I had a solution to that though, every time my roommate and I want to cook, we would cook more for my friend CP and then he do the dishes! :DD Save us the trouble of scraping pans and plates!

Thanksss CP! :D

I also hang out around at the kitchen some times after dinner (especially when internet's down). Just lepak-ing with other friends there, chatting through the night. Many times when there aren't people around, I'd like to bring my keyboard there to play some music. The skies there are AWESOMELY clear and starry!

Great cooks!


Random moments in the kitchen~

When conversations go wrong. LOL!


Walaa! I'm currently at San Francisco spending the last few days of my travel. This city is not as what I imagined. It is wayyyyy different from that hot cozy warm city I had in mind. Probably because of the end of summer, the weather here is very cooling and foggy! Plus, the internet at this hotel kinda suck. Owh well, good night!


My Alaskan Summer 2010 (1)

I've stacked up wayyyyy too many things in my drafts~ I've decided to just randomly nab some pics here and there and express different moments of my Alaskan Summer. Boy I've left Kenai for a bit more than 3 days and I'm missing that place already! One thing I can never forget is of course, the people I hang around with!

SC buddies from Malaysia =P

"Yum cha" session buddy from Taiwan ;)

Bestest Mongolian girlfriends! <3

On the other hand, I've managed to get soooo much closer to nature. It is BEAUTIFUL there! The trees, the starry night skies, the clear blue skies and of course, everything thats alive there! The moose, the caribous, anything alive!

Did I mention dogs too?

Okay we had a good pic, now gimme my disc back!

No way!
(But its fun! T_T )

(Random moose shit)

Theres this one time where I went mushroom picking in the forest. Artem invited me out of the blue one day. It was a pleasant experience as mushroom picking in Alaska is way different than Malaysia. Because it is much colder here, trees and plants grow much closer together (as learned in geo classes years ago? ;D )

Into the forest we go!


More moose crap!

This is how the good ones look like~

And so concludes my first random Alaskan summer post =P I've just finished my 3rd day in Seattle, will be flying to Las Vegas in 7 hours time!~ And halfway typing this post, I'm actually vid calling one of my imba friends, long jon. He is imba because he laughs funny and likes guys in waitress costimes. =)


Very very soon, I'll be back at home enjoying awesome Malaysian food with imba Malaysian friends! Oh yeah! Until then, LETS FLY AROUND USA!~ >=D
