Shenzhen The Series: Day #4

MU 7 - 1 Roma (8-3)
Valencia 1 - 2 Chelsea (2-3)

MU will meet either Milan/Bayern, Chelsea will face Liverpool/PSV.

Well, class today was about SIGTRAN and M3UA. Nice topic (refer to yesterday post :P ). Class finished on 12.00. On 2pm we had a visit to ZTE HQ along with another trainees from other countries. There, we're shown about ZTE market, their products from handset into next generation network. Short trip to the factory and so on. After 1 hour visit, next destination was Hua Qiang Bei.

This what I hate when travelling (in Indonesia we call it 'klayapan') downtown with too many people (8 men 2 ladies). Disaster... I think i wont go anywhere again except with only 4 people. And not with the ladies.

Rara is a very good example for a cooperative travel mate. She's easy going, no complicated mind when going to certain place. Unlike this ladies, full of mumbling and so on and so on.

Hours in Hua Qiang Bei we, in this case was me, spent for nothing except sitting on the KFC and waiting for a minivan which bring us back to the university.

I failed to get Agus Suyanto's monopod and some IT stuff I've planned with Aang to find.

Shenzhen The Series: Day #3

2nd day training.
Today we're learning about SS7. Interesting topic because i almost know nothing about it. Just knew a little bit from network operation people. Our trainer is Zaka from Pakistan. He's speaking English very well, so it made class more comfortable :P

Like usually, training break on 12.00-14.00. Continue after that until 17.00.
Some people of my class plan to go to Dong Men but i couldn't join them. There were many SMS and missed calls in my cellphone. Means there's problem back in HQ. *sigh*

Gimme break guys .... I need to concentrate here with my training and you just messed it up *&%@)%)@.

Got dinner in the 2F building called Leisure Zone (there are also room for playing tennis table, poker, chess, billiard, karaoke even a gym). Back to my hotel and again ... be patient with the worst internet connection I've ever used in my life.

I managed to send a 500kb file after midnight ... you can imagine that. It's "broadband" connection they said. Pheww ...

Hmmm, day has changed ... MU has destroyed Roma 7-1 and won 8-3 on aggregat. That's enough for now, i need to sleep. Class begin on 9.00.

Shenzhen The Series: Day #2

Well, ZTE place actually is nice. Except the fact that is far away from downtown (+/- 25km), some people might feel a little bit isolated. Specially thos old babies .... *sigh*

Training start with introduction to GSM technology and then continue to the introduction of SMSC. Dont ask the trainer to have well english speaking skill like Hongkong people, but so far we can follow him. Most of :P

There are some terms and understanding that have been mixed up. We need to ask the trainer to make reference of every term he used with ITU, 3GPP and standards from other international telecommunication group.

Finally, we went to downtown. Get to know with the real life in Shenzhen. Yes, it is a busy and crowded city. My chinesse friend Yuan Cheng took us to a restaurant for dinner. Nice food, at least I eat 2 bowls of noodles + vegetables + chicken + fish :P He made fat every time i went to China with him.

Good news, internet connection is getting better today :) Horeeeee
Just finish testing voicechat via Y!M with Derry and my lovely girl Rara. Have no problem talking with Derry's Y!M, but couldn't do the same with Rara's :(

Shenzhen The Series: Day #1

Like usually, flying with Cathay Pacific is always good. Nice food, nice flight attendants.
Arrive on Hongkong around 2pm local time. After finishing all imigration stuff, got into the bus and continue the trip to Shenzhen. It took around 90-120 minutes. First stop in Hongkong border Immigration.

Next stop is China-Shenzhen Immigration ... 180 degree different from Hongkong. Phew .. old building, queue line messed up, and public toilet which can make you die just by its smell. There is a joke ... if you can smell the very very very very bad odour from public toilet .. then you're already in China mainland. Welcome :P

Shenzhen,first time here. I thought it will be another cities in China i've visited before, but it isnt. Old city industry.

We arrive at ZTE University around 5pm. Little bit cold, but it is nice weather actually. People in my groups start mumbling about the university location. They felt being placed in somekind of remote area. Middle of nowehere (no mall and place like that in radius 2km :P). I dont have problem with it. I'll just stay in Hongkong if it just for mall/shopping area. I need to learn about signalling and SMSC here.

Had dinner on 6pm, meet some guys from Iraq and Tajikistan who also have training here. Went back to hotel room and try the internet connection.

I'm impressed. Very very impressed.
For company like ZTE, the internet connection was totally and completely SUCKS!!!!!


Well, i got my dashboard written in chinesse characters :P

What's wrong with KlikBCA

- Losing https session oftenly
- Even the popup page that should display the transaction result we want to print, suddenly change into KlikBCA login page
- And I also got this view when trying to topup my prepaid number. FYI, that view is applied whatever option you choose from the "jenis voucher" dropdown box

Hmmmm .... are you thinking what i'm thinking ? *devilish smile*
