Work Work & Work

Hi There,

So in case I have not shared yet, my boss just gave birth on the eve of Ramadhan. Alhamdulillah, I think it s boy.
Well she just text to inform of the safe labor and none else. My boss is very personal of personal things. She has and of course but you won't be seeing too much things which is private. Like who got divorce, who got dumped, who is she angry at etc. Which I believe is a good thing.

Well, move on to my working life. I must admit that its a bit at the moment. I have to take over half of her workload, then a staff of ours is on hospitalization (three weeks now) and so some of her admin work falls on me. That's no issue at all, but there are things which was not hand over properly (I mean who could forecast that they are going to get injured next week, and so do the handover this week right?) And AlFatihah to our colleague's Father In Law who just passed away yesterday. This colleague is handling hardware request and so unfortunately I have to wait for him to come back next week to settle a few laptops request.

Other than that database update is in progress. And my next table neighbor is having headache with the reply he got. Hahaha when you don't understand the question you failed to give the needed/required answer. And so he has to do the induction/deduction thingy.

Somehow I am enjoying this environment. Am I being a nutcase? Of course not, it's just that I am learning something in a fast pace mode huhu

Its already the second day of Ramadhan. I failed to do my terawih last night. I was too tired and slept after Isyak up till 4:30 for sahur. Reason? Hahaha I missed my sahur and my dinner so I was very tired. I am known to have issues with waking up for sahur. Bu Alhamdulillah, managed to wake up this morning for Sahur, Thank you to Mr Hubby for waking me up. Simple Nasi Goreng Ayam and some left over kuih was just nice. Its still early Ramadhan so the stomach is still digesting the food and the fact that we are eating at 4am. Be nice to your stomachs ok people. They need rest too you know. Don't stuff too much else they'd go crazy, and when they go crazy you go crazy too huhu. I hope I will be able to continue the Terawih tonight, InsyaAllah.

Wish me luck with work and Ramadhan.

Ramadhan is here....

Alhamdulillah Penyimpan Mohor Besar has announced last night that 1st Ramadhan will fall on Wednesday, yippi yeay yeay. I was in the car when the DJ announced it and I was so happy.

The new operating hours for my office is 8:30am to 5pm. So InsyaAllah I will have ample time to prepare the food for berbuka and sahur.Oh yeah, this year no escape for me...I have to wake up and eat sahur. That's what hubby told me...or rather reminded me. He needs to eat rice because he has to work hard. When Ramadhan comes, people will be changing furniture and hence more and more work coming his way.

And so I am waiting for tonight's Maghrib for the usual hehehe ...

Arwah emak saya cakap, Syaitan dan Iblis semua kena ikat time Ramadhan. Jadi kalau buat salah, monteng puasa, monteng solat, mengumpat etc tak boleh salahkan syaitan dan iblis hehehe. Sebabnya salah diri sendiri ... Sendiri jadi syaitan sendiri jadi iblis hehehe.

Sometimes people asked, why even when Syaitan has been kicked out people still tend to do wrong things, bad deeds etc. 

Here's a good and wise answer:

Ramadhan is all about freeing yourselves from what ever negative thoughts, activities etc. This helps in making you to become a better person, and hopefully InsyaAllah it will continue so even after Ramadhan.

I do not know yet what is the menu for buka or sahur. Whatever there is I guess, then its off to terawih yippi yeay yeay. Remember that fasting for the day does not mean that you can eat till you drop at night ok. Being hungry during the day is definitely a concrete reason to be overloaded with food during night time.

There's a lot of opportunities to grab during one whole month, 
  inclusive of

A prayer to all my friends

So all together now.....

A month has passed by...

I was posting a comment in one of those websites for online short stories and decided to drop my blog address. And I just realized that it has been more than a month since I last posted anything. My apologies readers (hahaha, if any) for my laziness. Yup, I am just going to admit it...I am lazy. Haiya people wanna have blog, you also wanna have blog. But people are constantly updating, you are constantly being lazy huhu.

Well, I joined my new place on the 3rd of June 2013. I had to report to Dayabumi (HQ) before going to Shah Alam. I went there by LRT and thank god, my new boss was having a meeting there as well.So she took me back to the office in Shah Alam. Alhamdulillah, for I was actually forecasting on how do I travel from Dayabumi to Shah Alam. One option was to go home and take my car hehehe. Though I will be arriving slightly late in Shah Alam. But Allah sent me a saviour, my new boss :)

We stopped by Bangsar to buy lunch and my boss treat me to CoffeBean. (waaa belum mula kerja dah kena belanja hehe). We drove back and she helped to assigned a laptop and working desk for me. Everything was done swiftly and before I knew it, I has started working already. There was a new project that needs a database clean up, and so that was my task for the day. My new desk was slightly bigger than before and less clusters because the Execs were given a laptop instead of a desktop and everything was on wireless!!!!! Muahaha

The area was humongous...extremely humongous. As compared to the old office. But I will be positioned at the main building next to the car park. Yeay. And every car has to do reverse park, its a standard which must be followed by every staff. And the guards will call out your car name if you don't...and maybe a summon from HR. I guess so, because no cars seem to defy the orders.

My next table was still empty as my new partner in crime will only be coming in the next Monday. In front of me is Kak Zam (the only female programmer) and next to Kak Zam is Fendi (also a programmer). Most often they will be seating at the meeting table in the middle of the office, as there's a lot of brainstorming session taking place for the new project. So I am left all alone...Lonely, I'm Miss Lonely.....huhu

Oh yeah, did I mentioned that I was seated in front of the boss's rooms. Yeah, you read it right. My desk is directly in front of the Manager's room and to make it worse, the Manager's room is next to the HOD's room. Hwargh, stress stress stress
The feeling of having your bosses looking and monitoring at what you do each and every second you were in the office is suffocating. Well, they don't like look at you all the time right?! Logic speaking they have tonnes and tonnes of work to do, so Jangan Perasan! Huhu

There's a canteen behind the office and that's the port for breakfast and lunch. Though the service is kinda slow but its faster than if you are going out. There's really not much choice around here. Either the canteen, or at the other side of the main road you have Pizza, KFC, a Malay shop and few Mamak's shop (which according to some friends are quite expensive).

There's a small "surau" inside my office which is a relief. We can go at anytime we wish to, provided waktu solat la. If you go 11 am then it looks fishy lah kan. The surau is shared but there's a sign to show if its a male or female who is currently in the praying room. Good eh. And the Muslims here do pray, Alhamdulillah...I am back to the "environment" which Allah has given for me to be a better Muslim.

Altogether there are roughly twenty people in this office, but it is very quiet and calm. A lot of work no doubt but the peacefulness is maintained and hence, its easy to focus on work here. Officially I start work at 8:30am and ends at 5:30. But to avoid the traffic, I normally arrived in the office latest 7:45am and I only go back after Maghrib. Hahaha but I get to finish more work I guess.

So there you go... A little bit of my new life here :) We'll continue some other time ok. Bye.....

In two days Time...

Well, it has been quite some time since I last wrote anything on this blog. Trust me, I was very busy...and lazy of course huhu. This Friday, 17th May 2013 will be my last day of work in the current company. It is of mixed feelings which I have at the moment. I tried to spend more times with my office mates and staffs. Lunch together
, tea together
, dinner together
. More things done together during office hours. we even had one ice cream
session last week.

Yup, what can  I say I like to eat...a lot.

Besides there's too much hanky panky going on in the office. Not that it had never happened before. But it is getting worse. To the point which I think leaving really is the best option ever.

Resignation... Done Deal

I had asked a few opinions from a few people regards to my decision. And even when people advised for me to do so by the end of the month, something deep inside me urged me to drop it by today. I kept thinking about it when I was doing my work. Can't wait is it - is what people will ask me no doubt. But this afternoon I had a disagreement with my boss. Clashes of opinions, and I ended it when I told him "Its ok I will give it a try to what ever you said" and walked off. He still wants to say something and I told him I can not think at the moment.

I just do not wish to do something redundant. Something new came up and the launching time is 1st April, which is like few days to come. And we need a faster action and not something may take forever. I know that I can not afford that as well.

He called me and only said 5 things (the shortest meeting ever I tell you):
1. xxx
2. xxx
3. xxx
4. xxx
5. What ever your decision after this, its entirely up to you.

My reply? Fair enough - and I handed him the letter on the way out.
Maybe he would have take it as a challenge when I handed him the letter after he said that, but for me its a mere relief.

Guru Hina Pasukan Keselamatan Ditahan

Hmm, sebenarnya nak berkongsi suatu artikel yang dibaca melalui Kosmo Online.


GURU yang didakwa menghina pasukan keselamatan ditahan polis di Pasir Puteh semalam.

PASIR PUTEH - Seorang guru di Kelantan ditahan polis pada pukul 7 petang semalam di sebuah rumah di Kampung Gong Serapat, Pasir Puteh kerana menghina pasukan keselamatan dalam Operasi Daulat di Lahad Datu, Sabah melalui laman sosial Facebooknya.

Ketua Polis Daerah Pasir Puteh, Deputi Superintendan Mohd. Kamal Zainal berkata, suspek yang mengajar Pendidikan Seni di sebuah sekolah kebangsaan di daerah ini ditahan di bawah Seksyen 4 (1) (a), Akta Hasutan.

"Siasatan awal polis mendapati suspek berusia 37 tahun itu mengaku mempunyai penyakit mental tetapi sudah lebih lima bulan tidak makan ubat.

"Dia juga pernah ditahan dua kali sebelum ini atas kesalahan membuat kecoh di tempat awam," katanya ketika dihubungi malam tadi.

Menurutnya, kali terakhir suspek ditahan polis adalah pada tahun 2009 kerana mengamuk dan mengganggu ketenteraman awam.

Dalam pada itu, Kementerian Pelajaran akan mengambil tindakan tegas terhadap guru tersebut.

Saya tak pernah baca apa yang di komen oleh si pelaku, tetapi yang menarik perhatian saya ialah kenyataan bahawa pelaku di katakan mempunyai masalah mental dan sudah hampir lima bulan tidak makan ubat, punya rekod membuat kecoh di tempat awam dengan mengamuk.

Rekod sedemikian masih di benarkan mengajar?

Viva La Vida...

Honestly, I was never good at naming any songs and the respective singers for that matters hehehe. But I am kinda attached to this song by ColdPlay. The music is unique and the lyrics are somehow very poetic, well for me la..

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

* No idea what to post hehe

Honesty The Best Policy.....Hmmmm So Not

Greetings People,

The topic which we will be talking about today is

Why did I chose this topic? Well, it is known to some people that I was and still am looking for opportunities. Why did I not utilize the word "Better opportunity" instead of Opportunity - as normally this associates with work/career. Well, until you have been in that "opportunity" you would not know if its a better opportunity right? Some may offer better salary but perhaps a rather inconducive work environment.

Well anyway, I have been sending my CVs and applying online actively for the past few weeks. Why? Well, I would say it will be a good exposure for myself, to get to know what will be the latest trending in the market. The skills, the requirements, the job which is in demand etc. But yes, I do think of leaving my current company seriously. Why? Perhaps, its time for me to move.

Yes, there has been a lot advices given to me pertaining to this move. Some would say stay as getting a job with a better prospect is not easy nowadays. And plus I have been in this environment for sometime now and so it helps. Being in one's own comfort zone and being complacent is definitely an enemy when one is thinking about moving out and on with life. Hence why some say that change may not necessary be for the better. Well, it depends on personal opinion and experience I'd say.

And so I did forward a few resumes to friends as well. I received a call from my former lecturer asking if I would like to join her. It seemed that her boss is looking for a few candidates and she was reminded of me (aww so sweet). I sent my resume and was informed that an interview is required for her boss to meet me. And so I asked if it can be done on Friday as the client will be coming up to KL this week (conversation took place on Monday and client came on Tuesday. Expected to be here till Friday). She informed me that she will check on her boss's availability.

Well back to the title up there. Asked my boss if I can get leave on Friday. He asked why. I told him that I need to go for an interview.

Me: boss are u in?

Boss: yes i am

Me: saya nak mintak HD this friday boleh?

Boss: naper/

Me: i have an interview. i know it sounds weird but i do not wish to lie

Boss: times...honesty can be a little mellow

Me: rezeki tak berkat kalau menipu
even i told the interviewer that i will not be able to leave early
because i have commitment still here
in case i got the job lah
sebab dia ada tanya if two months negotiable

Boss: ok

Me: tapi kalau bukan rezeki saya di sana then i am ok with it too

Boss: ok

Me: i am only left with 5.5 days and 5 days will be utilized to go kinabalu
then i have no more leave so i can not leave teh company just like that kan

Boss: yup

Me: dun wori i dunn the intention to AWOL
not my style

Boss: i know

Sent at 10:19 AM on Tuesday

And so the conversation just ended like that. See, I may be seen as the dumbest person on the face of the earth just by being honest about the reason for me to take leave. Even my comrades shared their concern as well. They even told me to be strong about it.

I don't feel that lying is good especially when it comes to things as such. Why is it so hard to acknowledge that your subordinates wishes to go for an interview. I mean don't you feel happy that your subordinates might be getting a better offer, better position, better career enhancement etc. Well, I guess not. A colleague was asking if I purposely did that to see if I am worth of a value or important to my boss? No No No No...That has never been my intention. Never. I just wanna see if he is different. Apparently he is not :(

I have repeatedly informed him that I will leave properly when the time comes. I know how it feels when your people left just like that. FYI, none of my team has ever done that but when others do, the work burden is felt on the rest of us :)

So Learning Point of the day:
Should you need to go for an interview, do not ever tell your boss. If he asked what will you be doing on your AL applied? Just say sleeping (well if you were sleeping during any of that 9 hours of supposedly working time, its not considered lying tau).

Life After Marriage...

Well, I did promise to stop talking about my wedding day but did not say anything about post wedding day kan kan kan huhu. Well, Alhamdulillah everything went pretty ok I guess :) The most sought after event is "Open Your Presents" huhu

Although some of my friends used to complained that duplicate presents is an issue, I don't seem to think so. Well, I did receive the normal wedding gifts, Dinner Set, Breakfast Set (a set for two so I guess I can use it until the family expands huhu) , Iron, Kitchen ware etc and I am just happy that I can have something to put in my kitchen cabinet which has always been empty for as long as I can remember :)

The most famous question which I still received on daily basis is "How's marriage life?" from those who genuinely would wanna know, those who is ready to tease and those who are merely kay-pho-chi. Well, I don't really know what do I need to say. The vocabulary chosen needs to be correctly and wisely used to avoid any misunderstanding which could easily leads to disaster *exaggerating wink wink. I guess its ok for me. For one thing I am glad that a relationship has been made halal, that would be the most important thing for me. I am now a makmum to an imam. I have someone I can snuggle with whoa.... too much info there. Turn around turn around hehehe. We played computer games together; or rather the FB games together. Other than that, I am washing twice the clothes, folding and ironing twice as much, having to share the Astro remote control, having to share my queen bed (my bed is my gymnastic floor hehe). Well, based on what I share you guys can do your own math...

One thing that I have yet to venture is cooking for my hubby. I don't cook at home, one of the reason is because of the house kitchen piping has been giving us some problem dating like years ago (giving me problem since years ago, as he just came on board last December). And I need to learn more on what he like to eat and what he doesn't. Well, he doesn't like vegetables at all with the acceptance of Kobis Masak Lemak . I like vegetables especially simple salads and am not really a big fan of chicken and meat. Haish clashes of interest..See? This is one of the things which I need to overcome as well .

Well, so far everything seemed to be under control. We'll see how it goes with Food War muahaha.

Wedding day Part Three

Well well well, I promise that this will be the last post of my wedding day. Hehehe macam lah orang lain tak pernah kahwin is what most married readers would say (ada ker orang yang baca blog ni, mode perasan).

Malay custom states that after the bride's side of the 'kenduri' has been done, now its over to the groom's side. We had ours in LGM in Sungai Buloh, the place was nice and with a big size parking lot as well. Next to the hall is the LGM hotel so its easier for the seminar participants or in our case, the bride and groom to have a place to get themselves prepared before the ceremony.

The night before the ceremony, we went to the hall to send some things over and have a look at the work of the catering team :) They were fast, efficient and very clean. The theme here is black and white, back to retro bebeh!!! And also to place our door gift bag - a big orange for 'pencuci mulut' (dessert). Simple and convenient :)

Well, the very next day we were there roughly around ten plus in the morning. We sent some extra dishes which my mother in law had cooked (yup, with all the fodd she was still cooking some more 'lauk') and off we go to get prepared. The guests arrived around 12 and we had our "makan beradap" as usual. My guest of honour was of course my parents, Nina's parents and Mak Cha :).

We had nice food and nice companionship. Abang Morhizam, Hubby's cousin was our official photographer of the day:) Thank you abang Morhizam.

Let me see, at the moment I am lazy so maybe later I will update more :)

Cau Cin Cau :)

Wedding Day Part Two

Okay, so this is the day :) Woke up early of course. Went to set up a few things and time for the make up. Ina is here to save the day. Hurray!!! Well, those who have been into a wedding would have known that marriage nowadays is relatively costly. The whole bridal package, make up, wedding dress/gowns, henna drawing can easily cost up to thousands of Ringgit Malaysia. And I honestly do not have that amount of money to spend huhu.

So here we go, the make up was quite fast and easy as I have told Ina that I want it simple and sweet. I am a non-make up user and so I don't want my face to end up looking like a Chinese Opera Actress :) (courtesy of Google). And so sweet and simple it was.

Once the Groom and family arrived, we were called to sit in front nearer to one another as the ceremony is about to begin. I guess here in KL in much simpler as compared to Johor. Simpler in what sense? No no no, you still have to do the akad and all, its just that in Johor you will have a commitment paper read out by the bride's mother containing all the doa's and advices to the bride. A very touching moment I'd say. That was what I saw when I had to be my cousin's Lady In Waiting :).

My auntie was sobbing non-stop and then my late uncle had to continue from there onwards. Huhu...Well, anyway back to future. The Kadi was very firm and strict in making sure what ever is required to be shared and passed down to us was done properly.

The form were signed and confirmation was done. And then comes the solemnization. My fiancee was sooo nervous that we were only declared husband and wife after the third attempt (minus the two 'practice' session in between).

After the solemnization, he went for the prayer and then the "Upacara Batal Air Sembahyang" took place. He put the ring to my finger and gave me the "Mas Kahwin" or "Mahar" (courtesy from Google - We did not know that a 'declaration' is required as the Mahar will then belongs to me me and me muahahaha.

Then came the Lafaz Taklik, the Kadi asked him to read and then paraphrase what he understood. I guess he was still nervous that he mentioned "Sekiranya saya tiada dan keluarga gagal memberikan nafkah zahir dan batin pada isteri"....What The Hell!!! Everyone practically laughed at this point of time. Aiyah family only required to give the Nafkah Zahir and not the Nafkah Batin la sayang...Hahaha panic attack I guess.

Alhamdulillah, the session ended rather well. Lunch was served and we get to meet everyone particularly my family members. Next, was the photography session. Since we can not go out that far as some guests are still here, we opted to go to somewhere nearer. A small lake nearby to the golf course and the round about to UPNM hehehe.

Since a proper ceremony has not yet taken place, hubby has to go home that night and promise that he will come back the next day to pick me up :)

What an awesome day it was indeed :) And Monday back to office :(
