Don't you just hate when...part 003

During my studying years last time, I used to have a lot of assignments, basically given by lecturers which are respected to their subjects. I never found myself in trouble of ensuring those assignments to be completed based on the right sequent of the sub-topics - apart from my endeavor to find the answer is slightly discounted in this issue.

Everything looks easy at that time as I know where to find notes, who should I refer once I couldn't understand certain tasks and which generous friends I could copy down their answer without any sneered face.

But now, everything has changed. I couldn't feel the same convenience moment which I have experienced last time. All I could see now is a new hard life at the top of my head, waiting to be relinquished out.

It has been two months now that I've served Astea Innobiz Ventures Consultancy Services as their Safety & Health officer. I've learned a lot of things since the first day I entered the doorstep of site office in government administrative center, Putrajaya.

Reminiscing the awkward moment back there when I need to produce monthly safety report regarding the GFRC rectification work which was actively under progressed, I was bewildering whenever I went through all the documents. No one was there to guide me as no one concern about my confusion I had faced.

Well, I can't blame them for that as they were not the persons who are in-charged. The person who is responsible to show me the proper guide was officially resigned just before I get started. Meaning to say, I have no chance to confront and talk with him regarding the subject matter, not even to see his face! So, there's only one way left as they don't give me any option - I have to learn all by myself.

Back to the report, it has a quite number of sub-topic such as report progress, machinery used, workers name's list, fatalities/minor/major/serious injuries issues and many more. All these sub-topics have to be attached together in order to form a complete safety report. At certain month, the pages reached out between 50 to 60 pages. It's obviously thicker than most of my assignments during my studying years.

At my first attempt to form the report, I was fully lost and dumbfounded. I don't know what to do as no one was willing to appear and help me. I can conclude that moment was the hardest part for me so far since I work under this consultant. I need to enforce everything all by myself without any consistent help from others.

Even after I was befriended with the supervisors and engineers so that I could use them as my springboard to gain some favor, yet it seems doesn't work accordingly. At particular things, they are very resourceful while in the certain part, they give nothing, not even the subtle message.

But now, after I was successful in sailing through the hard time a month ago, I could say that I face no serious problem anymore in producing that particular report. Every page is just a piece of cake. There's nothing I should worry about. I've cover all sub-topics in order to cater all requirements from JKR, JRM, PJH and PERKESO as well. Even they noticed the lacks, I could revise them in less a day :)

Hopeless Girl and businessman

For the second consecutive time, I've nothing in mind that I wish I could dump inside this entry as I'm completely running out of ideas. Usually, I used to write down my thoughts, experiences, issues and irregularities which force my dissatisfaction sense comes alive. Unfortunately, tonight those things haven't come across over the head, not even closer.

I endured the same situation yesterday but fortunately, a relative of mine came with an effective solution as she was tagging me with a bunch of questions. I could say that It's another way of sweets escape of boredom regime. Yet today is different, there's nothing could help me to regain back those ideas even how hard the brainstorming session I have launched. Every single way I tried was ended with frustration.

Apparently, it doesn't make sense if I say there's nothing in my head. Certainly, I do have some particular points which I presume we could share together, yet the point is not really convincing enough to be cited for the time being. So, I will write them later as I assure it will be more valuable later on.

Since the idea is still dried, I managed to roam on all over my blogger-mates until stumble up upon one particular entry, which was really attracting me. This entry reveals how a businessman's point of view replying the questions issued by one particular girl who described herself is pretty, beautiful and vogue. The worst part is, the girl was publicly urge her desire to marry any rich-man who has annual income more than 500 k. Well, to read the original post, please click me

Hopeless Girl : What should I do to marry a rich guy?
I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York . My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York CityGarden(? ), $250k annual income is not enough.

I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I've met a few girls who doesn't have looks are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

Reply From CEO J.P Morgan :
Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here. From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain. Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money": Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.

However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worried 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position". If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased". Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Don't you just hate when...part 002

In the previous entry, I enhanced out loud the issue about the bad consequences once you make changes in life. As I was promising beforehand to come out with the real-life-experience of mine so that I could relate with the entry’s title and to ensure the title remains relevant, I would like to share what is in my head for the time being. It just another grumble J

Recently, I moved to Balakong after being hired from one particular consultant. They were likely to provide me an accommodation for free charge including electricity bill and others. Meaning to say, I don’t have to pay any single cent for the rental fee where it makes me feel so much lucky. To deny or refuse the opportunity is just make me look so plainly stupid, isn’t it?

Apparently, this is a new place for me, not just only that but this is also a new atmosphere, new faces, new environment, new surrounding and new community as well. I never thought my life would be drastically transformed so much like this. I could feel the different and feel strange as everything is not as usual as before. My daily basis activity has totally changed!!! On top of that, whether I like or dislike, I have to go through no matter what regardless whatever it takes.

I want you to put yourself in my shoes. Let say you are desperately need to move to somewhere way far from under your familiarities aspect, and to make thing doesn’t any better, you have no idea who you need to call or text for favors, all you can do is standing the awkwardness all alone. What would you feel? What would be the first thing that running in your head?

I was staying at Mantin more than five years due to my studying purposes. Being part of the public, I’m very glad to say that I know pretty well about the developing era of this township territory. Many infrastructure buildings and trade centers had been constructed to spur the economic growth over the period. This region wasn’t stagnant, I can see a lot of improvement and transformation over this town in five years time and pretty sure you will expect I have discovered a lot of new things here.

So, do I need to implement the old pattern of introduction in Balakong after I was successfully sustaining my life in Mantin? Don’t you feel that I need to restart my life utmost at all over again similarly in the past five years? This is what makes me feel inconvenience when I have to make “changes’ in my life despite I’m fully aware to be affected with more benefits from the same “changes”.

Don't you just hate when...part 001

Lets straight to the point…

Truthfully without no hesitancy and suspicious mind of mine, I’m such a person who doesn’t feel very convenience in term of “changes”. Or in a different view, I prefer to not have any drastic changes in my life. Obviously, I’ve admitted plainly :)

Sometime people will ponder that having changes in our life is stunned especially whenever it makes our life a little bit pleasant compare with the previous hectic life. Okay, I have nothing to against the fact, there’s nothing wrong with the fact. But, have you ever wonder about the consequences in term of disadvantages instead of the advantages that we would experience right after the “changes” we have made?

Okay, let’s take this issue into example form..

Let say you are owning a phone which is looked very sophisticated, have multi – function button, various build – in applications and very easy to operate. You are delighted and enjoy so much fun in every time you utilize your phone as you are clinging around it for quite number of years and amazingly, it found no irregularities or defection or have not given you any problem at all. Even it felt down on the floor, smashed it on the wall and detached harshly for more than hundred times, it still in good shape and quality. The best part is, you bought the phone with your hard earn money and it was the latest phone in the market. It had been sold out at every phone’s booth or gadget’s shop just like pisang goreng. It was hot item at that time!

Now, this is the issue….

You had spent all nights long just to get familiar with those buttons, application and function. At certain part, you were struggled and it took you more than a week so that you could get along with them without much effort. After few times, it had polished your skill as your fingers smoothly tapping on the button and able to save some time of thinking about the next press.

After a few years, new phone has roared out in the town – this time, it highlights the capability of their latest function and application compare with the previous version. Pathetically, those new functions have no different at all with your old phone and it has nothing to do with your daily social life, but your desire keep seducing you to fork out some ringgit to switch your old phones with the new one.

Okay, now we arrive at the part that I really don’t like…

I hate when I need to spend all night long just want to gain some knowledge about that new phone. It seems that I’m redoing the old process of introduction. It feels so much worse when I have to sacrifice my quality time such as sleeping and facebook-ing..hahaha….This is just an example and nothing to do with my real life, mind you!

~End of babbling~

*will try to relate this issue with my current situation later*

When the Inner speaks, the Outer listens

Hye kamarul, this is inner Kamarul calling from your deep down of your despaired heart :) As I work closely with your feeling, I know the real disappoinment that you have to endure after you were announced to graduate as second upper division instead of first class division - the crown that you have craved for a long time. Your heart was crumbled pretty badly, indeed.

Frankly to say that you are not terribly neither stupid nor you are becoming one. Perhaps these are the things that certain people who is called as students in particular or teenagers as a whole will have to go through no matter what. Don't pull yourself down like that or you will have the sentiment disorder later on. You have tried at your very best and I'm quite sure you have done all necessary things to reach your dream. You had played your part quite well :)

It doesn't meant that people who dedicate their life and time on books at all time will be triumphantly success in the exam and vice versa. Even they felt like they had answered with flying colors, it doesn't meant that they could get the straight A's recorded on their report and be crowned as one of the best students in the region.

The worst part is, some of them has sacrificed their sleeping hours and completely forsake any sort of entertainment just want to fulfill their time with theory only. I classify this kind of folk as freak and has no life to live. Life is not only depends on theory, it must moves together with daily basis practice and both of them just need each other.

I know that failing or getting something which is not parallel with your standards would really dump you at the state of great frustration but that is life. Life isn't always fair. If life is a straight forward then everyone will start to complaint that life is f*cking boring. Isn't it? Allah is always testing us and we are unable to analyze the hidden agenda. Only Allah knows what is better for us.

I believe that you are likely to find something harder and brutal than this later on since you are now has step forward to the next level where the responsibility has grown bigger. You are working now and I assure that you will clash towards different high potential challengers and rivals. So, always remember:
  1. Work smart, put effort and do all the best you could.
  2. Be prepared for whatever challengers you may get.
  3. I always believe in this "Only when you fail, you will rise again". So when you fail towards something, don't just sit around yet rise again and work harder. InsyaAllah all your efforts will be paid off in so many different ways.
  4. Believe in Qada' and Qadar
  5. Without a teeny-weeny doubt, doa and tawakal
Your brilliance will always shine through, so why are you getting nervous about big roles or responsibility that you have to take? Rest assured that your team members, no matter how big it will be, will be left impressed by your performance. So instead of using up all your energy getting stressed out, use it to envision the standing ovation you will receive.

It will help you to get back in touch with your confidence, it's there, but you might have to dig down deeper in order to find it. Hey, if you need someone to converse with and there's no one is willing to hear you, or all your rambling has falling in the deaf ears, I could be your talking wall :)

Bye bye Kamarul. I hope I could boost back your confident level in every now and then. There's no any other way except FORWARD :D
