Fairy tales Story

Just wonder why fairy tales story never happen to me......Where a poor girl meet her prince charming and live happily ever after.

Shocking news again.....

Hmmmm, today another shocking news which make me feel really sad. Today is my "SENSEI MR YASUO" last day!!! Honestly, I really unprepared to get this news so fast. When I read the farewell message I nearly drop my tears. I just don't know how to describe my feeling at this moment.

Monday, February 23, 2009


This morning we have an ad-hoc meeting and as expected they will be retrenchment going on in the company. I believe majority of us have been prepared for this bad news but anyway I still speechless after the announcement.

Generally, the retrenchment will be follow-up in a few phases. I believe now the company is implementing for the first phase where the entire contractor will be the victim. Then the phase 2 will be the permanent staff which is under the prohibition period / new comer.

Even I am mentally and physically prepare but deep inside my heart I still hope for the solutions. It is easy to advice people but it is hard to overcome ourselves.

I really feel speechless and no mood at all for anything. I guess this is what we call life which is full of uncertainty as the song “Life is like a roller-coaster” where there is up and down.

Lost Motivation

Recently I just loss motivation and found myself unable to focus on anything. I am not sure why this happen ? I am tired and still have sleepness night even I have try a hot chocolate drink before sleep.

Hahaha - I really enjoy cooking as I think it is a form to release stress and make me happy !!!!

Another sleepless night

I just couldn’t sleep well this few days…..I don’t know why? I am rolling from side to side on my bed so that I could get into my sweet dream faster. Well, it did not work for me at all. So I just switched on the CD player with nice instrumental songs which I hope it can make me fall asleep as soon as possible. And yet the same, it did not work! What had been pressured me so far and brought me all these sleepless night…………

The Present is a “Gift”

Two men both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the window in the room. The other had to spend all his time flat on his back. The man talked for hours on end on different topics like their wives and families, their homes, their jobs and their involvement in the military service. Every afternoon the man near the window would describe the scenes and sounds of the world outside.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods when his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

One morning, the nurse arrived bringing water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to window. The nurse was happy to make the switch. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up to take his first look at the world outside. If faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate to describe such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind. She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to make you happy”

Thoughts for reflection:
The riches person in the world is one who knows how to make each moment
Happy for the self and others, Today is a gift, that’s why it is called the present.

Layoffs and Downsizing

Today I decided to write on the layoffs and downsizing in MNC. All of us is aware on the economic crisis and a lots of people are worried about getting laid off as many company is going through “restructuring” – I am one of them who is really worry on the situation even I know “There is no reason to worry for the problem that cannot be solve”……..but sometimes we just can’t help ourselves.

Trying to be positive is the only solution…..Besides that, don’t listen to wild speculation as rumors really can cause lot of hurt feeling. (I think so…).I also reminds me that I should not burn your bridges from anger. Hehehe…..I know even if I am the chosen one (hopefully not) it is not about my personal work performance. This is important to make me feel better.

I also want to thanks to all my friends which hear my stupid craps and nonsense during this period….Hahaha – I believe you all will hear more craps from me.

Farewell dinner

Honestly it is sad to bid goodbye to your friend but deep inside your heart you know his have making a right decision to move to a better career pathway. I wish him all the best in the future undertakings.

Actually, I do think we will miss out the farewell dinner as it has been rescheduling few times. Anyway, we manage to make it yesterday. I really feel sad as I will lose another good friend in PENANG. When I am writing this blog, I am thinking how we meet in the previous company. Hahaha…..

I think we know each other because of the “Test project” which is complicated. I do remember that you do help me “tapao” when I stay late in office alone. We ate “Maggie” together in the weekend when both of us try to complete our task. We have our first “outing” at Secret Recipe. We have our “Chap Goh Mei” meal together since both of us are not local “Penang folks” last 2 years. If not mistaken our first movie in cinema is “Music and Lyrics”. Hahaha – all this just simply pops in my mind …….I think we just can “click” well as you be there when I am facing my difficulties in last time.

I agree that we not that close actually………we not chat in MSN/SKYPE or having dinner that often. Just when we are free, we will hang out and chat. Maybe a few times a year….but I just treasure the friendship. I think we will “NOT” miss each other and will forget each other very soon after months…….

All the best and take good care of yourself. Forget the past and kick off with a great start in a new environment.....

Don't be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.

Coffee Talk

Hmmm – each day pass by and I can feel that I getting worry and worry due to the uncertainty in the company prospect. Sometimes I really feel lost and I do keep telling myself not to be worry as nothing much I can do.

There are many bad rumours on my current company. I believe there will be layoffs coming soon. I just joined this company for less than 4 months and according to management strategies company usually will layoffs according to the “last come first out” policy and the contractor. Even some company will implement to cut the senior folks as well. I am really in dangerous position as I am not sure which management strategy they will implement.

The only things I can do now is just pray to “GOD” and hope everything will go smooth.

Giving is fun......

I just went through my closet sorting out the clothes that I won't/dislike to wear. I managed to get a bag of unwanted clothes and I decided to share it among my colleague. Honestly, some of the clothes look brand news just maybe I become fatter and I just feel dislike to wear it. I know this is bad habit but since I will not wear it why not i just share among my friends.

I just ask whether my colleague is interested on my unwanted clothes or not......as sometimes people dislike to take unwanted clothes. Anyway, all my colleague is ok as we have MARINA who acted to be the supervisor to distribute the clothes according to the sizes and her personal opinion.

The office suddenly turn to a very happening environment where all the girls busy picking up the clothes. After the selection, I plan to pass the extra to the charity box.

My "Brother" alwalys remind me giving is alwalys better that receiving......I really enjoy giving and receiving as well especially present. Hahaha.

What is your ambition?

I remember that when I was a kid, I will always wish to become a doctor. I always think become a doctor is great as can saves people life. This happen maybe I have influence by the drama series which is related on the medical world such as ER, Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs and ChicagoHope. Hahaha - my favourite drama series is ER which has the handsome Dr Carter.

When I grow up, I know that become doctors is not an easy task as the basic qualification is the doctor must be excellent in the study. Besides that, all doctors must be prepared psychologically, mentally and physically. Anyway, I have 2 good friends become a doctor and there is under the housemanship training now.

I love to hear on their experience as they will be confronted with endless list of tasks, including managing patients, assisting specialists in the surgery room, getting scolded by senior medical officers and even slapped with litigation suits by patients. Honestly, I really proud of them as I know them sacrifices a lot to become a good doctor.

When I am blogging now, the list of problem come across my mind for the doctors is below:

  • Demands of the job — overload for the long working hour.
  • Time pressure — balancing work and family.
  • Finding coverage — especially for rural physicians and specialists.
  • Patients who are difficult, demanding, or critical .
  • Barriers to doing a good job — waiting time for imaging and specialists, shortages of hospital beds and nurses and the ever-escalating paperwork .
  • Lack of control over the direction of healthcare
  • Splits within the profession — specialists compete with GPs for financial resources which leads to less camaraderie and more mean-spiritedness
I really proud of you......Dr Yong and Dr Chan. Do enjoy the housemanship training as I believe besides the problem that you may faces there will be some enjoyment as well :)
