The good but not so old days....

While I was multitasking between reading and replying several whatapps messages as well as clearing my emails, a thought of the past came to my mind. I was also short on time as I needed to rush back to JB in order to beat the jam, which usually starts from 6pm to 9pm. It was hectic! The thought that dawn on me was back in the 90s during my late teenage years where I was working for small computer company before I got into the varsity. Life was pretty simple then! There were 4-5 of us working and I am a technician. Well, I can said that it was my first job in life! I love the job as I get to learn about PCs including assembling it. No problems if I broke a part, as the lady boss can always replaced it with her distributors. We take turns to manage the simple admin tasks of the company especially phone calls. There were no emails, no mobile phones as well as pagers, though these two type of devices already available in the market but my lady boss didn't want to use it. Mobile phones are huge and probably using the PCN network then. Whenever, there was a call, she will instructed us to take down the name of the caller, number and message onto an open worn out diary. If it's urgent, put a note there. She will read it when she was back to the office. And, we leave office sharp at 5.30pm and get to reached home smoothly without any traffic congestion in my small bike to catch the 7pm HK TVB serial. 

Fast forward to now ... need I say more...hahaha... Anyway, with more stress in life, there was also improved healthcare to cater to stress-related diseases including mental health to 'balanced' the quality of life, not to mentioned there are more health related programs, resources and activities.  However, I don't think we want to get sick, right? 

How I miss the good old days .... ! Perhaps I should pay a visit to my first company when I am back to Ipoh in year-end or early next year..hahaha... Ok, I patronised Nijumaru Japanese restaurant near Sutera Mall in JB. I let the pics do the talking.


One of the most beautiful sake sushi I ever seen...!

My favourite Sake maki!

As usual, my kids would love a salmon bento.

I ordered a Sushi Udon set which came with an assortment of sushi

And the plain but delicious and healthy Udon set

as well as a chawanmushi which I pass it to my little princess.
I didn't take all the pixs but I always never fail to compliment the fresh Japanese food there. No wonder, we needed to reserve a table there else it will be a long wait!

Have a good week!

    1. Princess - yeah lor .. Pascal, dos ,basics , Fortran but I don't like it till visual basics is born.

      Usually I will help them to finish the bento and that's also why they shared the bento.

  6. when I started working, there were already emails and mobile phones and no people actually were using pager anymore.. we learnt to support and face our customers, bosses only backed us up, which I think is a better way for us to gain experience..

  10. I would prefer if there is no Facebook but I need the internet as they save a lot of my time.
    I also missed those days when life was simpler and more peaceful.
