Well, today is 080808 but i am not going to talk about Beijing Olympics. I assume nearly all of my readers know we have two main oceans on this lovely planet, which is Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean. So what the heck is Penta Ocean then? It isnt an ocean by the way, it is actually a construction company based in Hiroshima, Japan since hundred of years ago.
Penta Ocean Construction is a leading Japanese comprehensive construction company with offices and involvement in many very large scale civil and architectural projects worldwide. Penta Ocean is also well known for its technological development capabilities.
The company i am currently attached to.
The company`s civil engineering unit also constructs airports and container terminals as well as dams, bridges, and highways. Work by its architecture unit includes concert halls, aquariums, office towers, and condominiums. Its environmental technology division builds wind power stations and recycling facilities. The company also has research and development operations for all of its divisions not only in Japan also actively taken part by the staff overseas.

I bet none of you understand what Penta Ocean actually is unless you were in construction or building line. Anyway, make it easier for you to roughly know my company, for instance, Penta Ocean was the major contractor for the Changi Airport reclamation projects, the Esplanade of Singapore, Marina Bay, Jurong Island, etc and now having few major projects with the authorities in Singapore.

I have started working since this month. Because i am still a fresh graduate, tonnes of stuff waiting me to pick them up. I am now designated in a Geo-Bund team, working with members originated from China, India, Taiwan and of course Japanese as well. I for the time being, need to go go to the work site everyday, learn and see how the work flow, how my senior supervise the workers and make sure the job is safely carried out and done nicely.

Generally, i work from 8am till 8pm, Monday to Saturday. Despite the tight schedule, i have two days off this week as tomorrow will be the National Day of Singapore. I gonna put this weekend off to a good use. I may only be able to update once a week which is Sunday. Thus, if you real wanna sit on my sofa, gotta stay tuned ya.
