Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC)

It was today when I walk to POIC Kota Kinabalu to know more about this company. I plan on making my industrial training (which will be on may) in this company.

The office was quite easy to find as it is situated at Sabah Trade Centre Kota Kinabalu where PC Fair in Sabah was held.

Looking by it’s name, everyone might have think that this is a company like IOI in which they process palm oil into product. But the fact is, this company is only a Palm Oil land developer. They did not involved in processing palm oil to the final product (this is what the officer told me).

With that, my plan of doing my industrial training here need to change. Not that they don’t take any internship but it is just that Chemical Engineering is not related with their business. So even if I apply and get a place there, it would be such a waste as there is nothing i could do there but maybe only become an office or a coffee boy.

For the others chemical engineers who want to do industrial training in POIC, i reccommend you to find another company which is really in the palm oil processing field.

For those who thinks they were interested to do industrial training in their administration section, copy the contact below;

I start blogging in 2008 but I have never take blogging seriously. And that is the biggest mistakes that I make in my life. In 2010 I almost stop blogging completely. I concentrate on my low paying day job and was too tired to even look at my blog. But then I still keep my blog and websites up. After 7 years, I realize that I cannot only depends on my day job. I could not afford being in the rat race 9 to 5 work and also on unpaid on-call work. Then I realize something, if I never stop blogging in 2010, I will have lots of audience by now. It takes few years for me to realize this mistakes. And now here I am again, creating a good content for you. I hope you can subscribe to my mailing list and also like my Facebook page. Also, if you found that my content is good, please share it with your friend. Thanks. - Papa Shally
