Finally completed my last CFAB paper ; PTX. And I'm done with CFAB! I'll be starting my internship/WBL on 1st April 2014. A new chapter to adventure in, hopefully it will be a good and memorable one! Please treat me nice my dear seniors!
The beginning of the last stage in CFAB. Principle of Taxation (PTX). Bittersweet moments with this subject, like all subjects actually, but I'm glad I managed to pull it through and pass it. Thank you Mr Ang for your constant guidance. Hoping that my class gets a 100% pass rate again! Free lunch please!
We had our free lunch with Mr.Jack as we had a 100% pass rate for his paper, Business & Finance! We ate at Chili's in Empire Shopping Gallery.
with Mr. Jack!

The Chicken Wings were good

A hectic month. So many things happened during this month. Some good and some bad.
Chinese New Year this year wasn't as merry as the last few years. It was just a simple one for us this year.
My Vios had a collision with another vehicle when my father was driving it. So I didn't get to drive my car for the entire month.
Annual Yee Sang with the classmates!

Firm Visits to the Big 5 started off with KPMG and BDO on Valentines Day.
We were stuck in traffic for two hours when we came back from BDO. KL traffic is horrible. Not to mention that the bus has to go all the way back to Sunway College. So practically took my three whole hours to get home. I was in a mad rush and full of impatient throughout the whole ride home.
I had a Valentines Dinner with my friends to celebrate Yong Teng's belated birthday as well as Amanda's farewell party as she was leaving for Australia the following day. By the time I got home, it was already 8 P.M. Dinner was to begin at 7P.M. So I thought I didn't had a chance to go anymore as my parents were not at home to fetch me. However, luck was on my side that day. When I got home, I called Tao Juen if by any chance he could pick me up, and he said yes! He could make a detour back to my place and pick me up! Oh the joy! Not gonna spend my Valentines Day alone!
We had dinner at The Apartment
A great Valentine's Day spent with good friends

Visited Ernst & Young located at Menara Milenium. Such a gorgeous place. I could see the twin towers from their lobby. But I guess auditors by any chance won't even visit the lobby during working hours, or ever.

Visited another auditing giant, Pricewaterhousecoopers, also known as PwC. I went there by LRT because I didn't want to travel all the way to Sunway College and sit through the KL traffic to PwC's office.

Deloitte, the firm which I will be going for my internship. Deloitte had moved from their Uptown office to TTDI. Which is still quite near to my house. I won't complain, but if it was at Uptown, I could have walked to work! But I doubt I would anyways, plus Uptown is like a food heaven! But then again, traffic and parking there is pretty hectic all the time. So perhaps their move to TTDI isn't such a bad idea.
We had a surprise assessment given to us on that day. It was three sets of IQ questions. The first set consisted of 100 questions, second set 50/70 questions ( I don't quite remember already), and the last was an essay writing assessment. On that very day, Deloitte said that they would be giving out offers to us. I was one of the lucky candidates that got pick that very day. I hesitated for a while as I had other offers from different firms too, but after a long thought, I went for Deloitte. They were the first firm that gave me the opportunity, and I cherish this opportunity given. Little did we know, Deloitte managed to grab in up to 11 of my classmates too. Well, guess I will be seeing most of the classmates during my internship.

We had an impromptu lunch all the way at Klang as we had 6 hours break that day. Food was good, I was hungry so everything tasted good to me.
We then headed back to my house to chill and pass the time till 5:30PM as we had excel class that evening. Why did we even bother to go? We had a great laugh while playing the Xbox. Laughed until my stomach pain!
Before we headed back to college, we went and had some Cendol.

Lastly, we visited Grant Thornton which was located at the Sheraton Hotel. It was a medium accounting firm as compared to the previous Big 5. But the refreshment they gave was one of the best. Okay, the blueberry cheese tarts and pastries won over me.

Finally passed my PTX Mock2 after failing PT2 and Mock. So to celebrate, Sheong brought me to his friend's house and we made Spaghetti Carbonara with Bacon! It tasted pretty darn nice if I do say so myself. A little too much cheese, but hey, I like cheese anyways ;) We had a nice tea session then we went and watched Frozen. Thanks Tzy Yang for inviting me over! :) I had a great day!
