As mentioned in previous post, I went for a 3 month student internship after my graduation showcase in August. Together with two of my classmates, we completed our internship at SS Design Studio, a sole proprietorship company which specialises in manufacturing of props, sculptures and models mainly for theme parks and events.
Owning two workshops in Ulu Tiram, Johor (I was very lucky that free accommodation was provided near my workplace), majority of the clients of SS Design Studio are from our neighbour country Singapore so it was inevitable that there were regular on-site trips to Singapore. Thankfully, my company was responsible for all my expenses during my occasional duties in Singapore.

My responsibility mostly revolved around making sure the final outcome look presentable by doing some touch-up work. There was a lot to learn from each project as I was new to the industry. I appreciated the diversity of projects my company had taken up because working regularly both on-site and in workshops had exposed me to great hands-on experience with tools as well as materials.
This job isn't as interesting as it may sound at all. Often we worked from one morning to another morning due to lack of employees with too much workload. We rarely had enough sleep when the due date was near. We were also constantly exposed to dust and chemical substances and workplace hazards without proper protective equipment.
