2015 is a year full of changes for me work-wise, and personal-wise. The two most significant changes would be moving out to our own house that we bought 5 years ago and shifting the office from Cyberjaya to Sunway (for me). :)
We have been informed about the office relocation during our Q3 All Employee Meeting (AEM) last July, if I am not mistaken. Since that, the management has communicated to us about the relocation update monthly via our newsletter on the progress, time to time. By early December 2014, we have started packing and moving from one level to another, until all the levels were completely closed for shifting.
Being located at the highest level in the office (level 3, Wing B), we were the first level to start the packing and moving activities..
The morning of our CD RAN gotong-royong day:
I got my box, sticker and checklist for packing..
The toughest task during this packing time would be to sort out my documents, which mainly consist of my technical training materials from the GSM technology up to LTE. From my Maxis days till E/// days. A LOT ok! In the end, I had to sit, cross-legged on the floor and started sorting. No way all those documents can fit inside the box provided by the re-locator. T_T
Finally, after an hour sorting...I was done!
Guess how many kg my box weighing?
By the end of the day, all of us finally settled with packing our personal stuff and we were relocated to Wing A the very next day. Quite sad actually, to leave my workstation which I was comfortable with with a privacy, secluded and having a nice view...
Having my last photo at my workstation...*sobs*
After a week of closure, this was how my floor looks like; the workstation has started being disassembled, and clutters were everywhere. Since most of the things will get rid of, people started to take whatever useful to them too..hihi
Hoarders alert, hoarders alert...
Finally, 16th January 2015 came, and it was our last day of occupant in the Cyberjaya office. It was indeed a sad day for all of E/// staff, to leave the building which has captured all the bittersweet memories, the joy, the laugh, the tears...the failures, the success..

The last view that I am currently missing...

On Monday, 19th January 2015 we officially moved to a new building; The Sunway Pinnacle.
Although it is very nearby to my crib (which is approximately 6.3km away), it took me an hour in the morning just to reach the office. The bottleneck would be the traffic and traffic lights in USJ plus the U-turn near Sunway Pyramid. Frankly speaking, I was stressed out at first because previously I have never met any traffic jam on my way to the Cyberjaya and it took me only 30 minutes to reach the office although the distance was 35km! >.<
However, a month has passed and slowly I have adapt with this situation and I took it as a challenge...The good thing was, since all of us are granted the season parking at Sunway Pyramid, I had a good 10 to 15mins walk in the morning, evening and sometimes during lunchtime. Most of the time, I do power walk, as my work out routine. The Sunway management however did provide us with buggy service, in case we are too lazy to walk or need to rush.
The best thing is, the buildings in Sunway are interconnected with each other either via tunnel or basement park so there's no issue of walking in the hot sun/raining day. I just love to stare at the beautiful view of Sunway Lagoon each time I passed by the Sunway Tower Hotel...
The following day, we have a simple ceremony to officiate the new office space during our first Fika session of the year. If you are not aware, "Fika session" derives from a concept in Swedish culture with the basic meaning "to drink coffee", often accompanied with pastries or sandwiches. It's like the English is well known for its afternoon English tea, the Swedish is known for it's Fika session...haaaa, gitu. :)
Anyway, first thing first, before we enjoyed our breakfast, we came to registration counter to collect our goodies (yay! :D).
We got Ikea Kussiner storage box personalized with our company logo. Nice!! and that's not all...ok!
The goodies inside the storage box ;)
Actually, it was my first visit to level 22, where the receptionist and the main area are located. Quite impressive I must say. The main platform itself will change it's color from time to time..
Pinkish at first...
Tiffany blue when I stood there..
...and lime green during the official launch of our new office by the Board of Directors and our Country Manager :)
The Fika session was held in our multi-purpose room, which is situated near the pantry..
I just love the deco at this corner near the multi-purpose room especially the fusion concept. Nice :)
