Surprise Bonus

We have got our Eid-ul-Fitre bonus surprisingly. Earlier it was told that we won't get the bonus at this festival. This is a good news for me after so many bad and depressing ones. Wish I can take a broadband connection at home with this money :-).

Second batch has been declared

The 2nd batch that will go to VC from Dhaka has been declared. It consists of Palash and Shakeeb bhai. Congratulations to them!!! Shakeeb bhai is one of the most efficient engineers in Eyeball Dhaka. I am happy to see him selected.

A great accumulation of knowledge

Wikipedia impressed me very much. It is a great source of knowledge. It has comprehensive knowledge of almost everything. I suggest everyone to give it a try.

Some nice days at Sirajgonj

Just came from Sirajgonj yesterday. It was a wonderful visit there. We stayed two days. For the first time, I saw the "Puja" of the Hindu religion. The city was fabulously decorated with lighting. Streets were filled with troupes. People were dancing and merry-making. All were in jovial mood. We visited a fair too. Though the commodities were not attractive, people were thronging there. Another day, we went to a relatives house for an iftaar party. It was great. We had nice time and food there. At home, we passed time with out cute young (really young, only a few months old) cousin. His presence was really captivating. We were always busy with the adorable kid. We took many photos and shot short videos of him. When we were starting for Dhaka, we were really sad to leave him back. Inshallah, we will go to Sirajgonj again in Eid.

Zunnun bhai

Yesterday, Zunnun bhai came to the office for the last time before departing for Vancouver. We all bathed him farewell. May be it is the last time I am meeting him. I wish him success in Vancouver.

Our new team leader

Shakeeb bhai has been appointed our new team leader. He is a very nice guy. We are very happy to get him as our new team leader. He is very pious and honest. You can view his photo here.

First batch got visa

Our first batch to go to Vancouver has got visa from high commission. It was much coveted. Shantanu, Zunnun bhai and Manjur bhai are going in the first batch. Today is kind of rehearsal of doing office without them. All of them are absent though only Shantanu is on leave. The office is very quiet. There is no hassle of lunch today as we all are fasting.

Ramadan has begun

Today is the first of Ramadan. As usual, I am fasting. I drank lots of glass of water but am thirsty now. I am hungry from the moment I wake up at morning. Our office time has not been changed officially. But in this month, I plan to come early and leave early. I shall try come before 9 am and leave not later than 4 pm. But today I shall leave at 3 :D.
