I was invited by the Malaysia Government to be industrial advisor for education ministry, technical learning department on their silibus and curicalar . Today, I need to be in Kuala Lumpur to attend a workshop organize by thi technical learning department. As a regular citizen, its an honour for me to get invovle in this workshop, to advise them on their silibus and try to contribute back to the society.
Once arrive at the hotel, it was a surprise to me that I got an exeutive room, together with a meeting room. After check-in my room, I met them at the first session at night and I was told that the real activity will be the next morning.
After had my breakfast, I was ushered into a meeting room. For the whole day, they will discuss on what to improve for their silibus and as a industry advisor to them, they will listen to my input and will take note on that. They will always appreaciate my input as they need guidance from the industry to improve their output – who is the students that will be feed into the industry, which is me. Thats why Im willing to travel from Penang to Kuala Lumpur so that I can help the Malaysian education system and thats the least I can do.
The next thing that Im looking forward from this session is meeting other people from the industry. Able to shake hand with CEO from bigger corporation makes me able to span more into the network. The once who was sitting beside me in the meeting room was someone that I worked with before. I did ordered 3D printing from him and he told me that he is looking for software engineer to help him to develop system in Batu Gajah, Perak. This is exciting as my team is now looking a new project in Bandar Seri Iskandar, Perak, which is just 10 minutes drive.
The next person that is sitting beside him, is the one who know my lecturer, the lecturer that I was having a meeting with last week. My lecturer and I were discussing a huge project. We took picture together and send to my lecturer. See, how the world is small.
Meeting at this kind of place, that surrond by industry people, makes me able to spend more network, getting more project, able to contribute back to society and that what makes me feel rich.
