I shall be travelling to KL tomorrow morning for business and site visit where my partner does the driving and meeting with clients. Sometimes, I just wait in the car and check emails, Whatsapp, Facebook, etc. He is qualified as a Civil Engineer, so site visit is not so suitable for ladies. The construction work is ongoing and they may be nails, pieces of steel jutting out from the ground, etc. And all the workers are men and it would be very rare to see a lady engineer or supervisor giving instructions to the male workers. By right, men should handle men only and not involve women.
Generally, women earn less than men in most of the countries as they are seen to be the weaker sex. To be honest, I could not earn so much now if I am on my own doing website designing and such. But thank goodness I met my boss from the website and he was the one who propelled the company to greater heights from his past experiences as a director in various sectors. He is very determined, working hard every day, giving instructions to workers, pay them their wages every few days via internet banking, handles logistics and replacement of the materials. He also attends interviews to secure the job at hand. I am a silent partner doing all the computer work which works very well for me since I have a long term sore throat since a few years back. There is very little contact with fellow human beings unlike in the MNCs or factories in Bayan Lepas in Penang – supposedly the Silicon Valley of the East.
By the way, today is International Women’s day and The Star red banner on the papers are coloured purple just for today to celebrate this special day for women. I shall be departing for KL tomorrow around 8:00am and be back before Sunday for my youngest sister’s birthday celebration at Fong Wei Chinese Restaurant in Penang.
