Today at 3rd of June, in the Hijiri year is 8 Ramadan 1438, meaning of that today already eight-day Muslimโ€™s peoples fasting. This a little bit of different but not totally. Last year Ramadan start at 6th of June and that time I was on night shift at workplace. Being a work at night shift, company had provided a free meal for us. The company has quite creative to make the voucher meal for staff and it reusable. Not like my other company that I had been working on before.

The first day of Ramadan last year, I was the first day night shift. Arrived at workplace and pull on jumpsuit, head to in front of PECVD department for briefing. Line up with colleagues, selfie, chit-chat and waiting line leader, production engineers and more. After briefing, production engineer said that company will give us food for iftar. We all feeling great and thankful. Canteen at this not like other canteen, small, one windows for food and other one for drink.

JA Solar canteen phase 1, enjoy our meals here.

In production line, main operator and operator discuss who is going to take break or iftar. I was and always first. So, the other operator will have a iftar in production but not a big meal. Itโ€™s only drink some water, a carton water. At 7.25pm, colleagues and I, headed to canteen and line up to get a food. Give the meal voucher to person in-charges and take food and sit down waiting for Adhan. I capture every time getting a voucher meal card.

My first meal for iftar at workplace. Malaysian style meals, a spicy always. 06/06/2016
ramadan4
Operator who not take a first break will drink water in production.

However, for PECVD got notice that our department have to iftar outside canteen. It means โ€œoutsideโ€ and I was like โ€œwhat!!โ€. At the first we having a iftar outside, my co-worker and I did not change the production clothes. We look different but not weird, as we already had a fire drill before, so we are not changing.

Hence, we had to change to normal clothes that because itโ€™s was wrong to go outside with jumpsuit. Changing jumpsuit take a more time and time is valuable. The company so strict about time. You have 30 minute for iftar like regular break time but when had to changing clothes, take food, go outside and eat. Like you are not having like a dinner or iftar. Every time to changing a clothes had to locker, then you going to return to canteen where the air shower door take time to open and take almost 25 second to do air shower.

Urrghhh!! so not good about that.

In fact, air shower time can be change to specific count but to many hand, play the timer and cheat the door. Security had to remove the part in the air shower to maximum the quality of enviroment in the factory.

A colourful meal voucher that reusable. A quite genius way to save a tree and waste a resources.

For one things, if I got chance to get out early from production, I just go to canteen looking suitable place to eat. The canteen was crowded and everyone got a seat, the noisy environment after Adhan was heard from someone phone. The canteen so quiet and everyone eat. What so funny, everyone is silent when the stomach is going to fill with foods.

The best memories about having iftar at this workplace. So different.

ramadan5
Another spicy meal except the eggplant that I not eat.

The end of Ramadan, where everyone got a pay check. Our main operator buys us a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) it only for our machine. Our machine has 5 people include our main operator and me. Besides, our free meal and one box of snack plate box each. I desire to eat a KFC before. So this is lucky day to get a KFC. My favourite most is Coleslaw. Thank you main operator for the KFC.
