One of my dreams is coming true ^_^

Hampir setiap hari cek SPA website, ye la sambil main Sorority games kat facebook tue tengok tengok juga kalau result interview dah keluar ke belum. Tiba tiba mataku ternampak satu tajuk tue kat bahagian bawah sekali "Keputusan Temuduga untuk Pegawai Tadbir Diplomatik Gred M41" . Dengan penuh perasaan berdebar-debar aku klik dan masukkan no IC ku..pastue ini yang keluar :-

Betul ke nie ? Macam tak percaya jer. Ingatkan nak tunggu sampai dapat offer letter baru boleh confirmkan betul ker tidak tapi tak tahan nak share juga kat blog nie ^_^. Tadi jumpa Datuk Rahman, the person who interviewed me in a wedding. He remembered me and said Congratulations..hehe...dia ingat kat aku...^_^. So I'm very confident right now, I did good during the interview..Yes..

I did received supports from my family and Mr. Hatiku of course ^_^. And don't forget http://tipsptd.com Lot's of information aku dapat dari website tue.This is the 2nd time I take the PTD exam but 1st time ikut Pre-PAC and interview. Aku beli Pakej Rujukan Peperiksaan Bertulis PTD M41. Tak rugi pun sebab sedikit sebanyak boleh mengurangkan perasaan gemuruh nak jawab peperiksaan tue.Tapi banyak juga buku lain yang aku review. Dah tak larat dah nak baca semua buku tue plus waktu untuk pergi kerja lagi. Nasib baik ada kak Rosma yang sangat memahami.

Sesiapa yang berminat nak beli buku tue. Klik je kat gambar sebelah kiri tue..okay..Good Luck Kengkawan ^_^

For the Rest of My Life Lyrics

This is another singer which is currently 'meletop di pasaran' for his songs. I love it. Kak Rosma recommended him and one of our colleague help us to adjust our pc so that we can hear it from youtube..hehe.. until IT Department found out about it and block our access...Dalami lirik. Ia mempunyai maksud yang sangat mendalam in a simple words.




I praise Allah for sending me you my love
You found me home and sail with me
And I`m here with you
Now let me let you know
You`ve opened my heart
I was always thinking that love was wrong
But everything was changed when you came along
OOOOO
And theres a couple words I want to say
For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you. loving you
For the rest of my life
Thru days and night
I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I I`ll be there for you
I know that deep in my heart
I feel so blessed when I think of you
And I ask Allah to bless all we do
You`re my wife and my friend and my strength
And I pray we`re together eternally
Now I find myself so strong
Everything changed when you came along
OOOO
And theres a couple word I want to say
For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you. loving you
For the rest of my life
Thru days and night
I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I I`ll be there for you
I know that deep in my heart now that you`re here
Infront of me I strongly feel love
And I have no doubt
And I`m singing loud that I`ll love you eternally
For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you.loving you
For the rest of my life
Thru days and night
I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I I`ll be there for you
I know that deep in my heart

Sungai Lui By Aizat

Just listening to radio when this song is in the air. Sungai Lui by Aizat. When I first heard this song, I thought it sounds very familiar because I listened to old songs but somehow forgot which one. My sister also told me the same. However, seriously in love with this song together with the lyrics. Good Job Aizat. Continue your well done job :). My boss also loved your song even she queued to buy your signed album. hehe..And she said I'm the one who should did that not her ^_^.




Pejamkan mata mu untuk ku
Dengarlah dunia berkata-kata
Usah kau ragu disini tempatmu
Walau berubah dimata kita
Tetap indah selagi kau masih percaya

Tertawa kecewa terpisah
Jalan yang lurus kian berhalang
Adakah semua ini yang ku inginkan
Ataupun hanya mengejar dunia semata-mata
Ku harap ku masih percaya
Adakah semua ini yang ku inginkan
Ataupun hanya mengejar dunia semata-mata

Ku harap kau masih percaya
Bukalah matamu
Biar aku memelukmu
Kita bersama masih muda masih mentah
Ku harap kau masih percaya

Selama ini ( 7x )

The Ah Kau Story

Read an article yang 'dicedok' dari skor career. It's good for sharing :)

Ah Kau is a guy who sells newspaper every morning next to your apartment, and you are one of his daily regular customers. Before dashing off to your office every day, you will go to his small stall and buy The Star newspaper. Wearing a newly pressed shirt, a tie, and a pair of Clarks shoes, you grab a copy of The Star, pay RM1.20 and exchange smiles with Ah Kau and greet him.
 
"Apa macam Ah Kau ini hari? Bisnes ada baik?"
 
The normal greeting like you do every day. Yes, Ah Kau doesn't speak English. He speaks Chinese and knows a little bit of Malay. He speaks a little bit of Malay but with a very thick Chinese accent.
 
"Biasa saja... ini bisnes aa, kadang kadang baik, kadang kadang tada untung oo...."
 
"Biasalah hidup. Kadang kadang ok, kadang kadang tak ok." You give Ah Kau a pat on the back.  You smile and walk away and get into your car. You start the engine and start driving to your office, a multinational semiconductor company located in a premier industrial area. You are a young and promising finance executive and the future looks bright for you.
 
A year goes by and things look pretty good on the track. You decide to marry your fiancé and have your new wife moves in to your place. Both of you feel happy because you can save more money as the two of you will be sharing one apartment and can live as one.
 
Ah Kau is still selling the newspaper as usual. Sometimes in the morning your wife gets the newspaper from Ah Kau instead of you.
 
A year later a child comes along, and you decide to buy and move into a newly developed condominium just across the street. This place is bigger so it will be perfectly fit for the 3 of you. But since both of you are working, you decide to get a maid to take of the household and your kid.
 
By this time you're offered a managerial job from another multinational; the remuneration package offered is much better in terms of the pay, contractual bonus, medical benefits, ESOS scheme and a few others which make it impossible for you to decline. So you join this company happily. 

You get busier. You realize that you spend less and less time with your family. When your department is busy preparing for the next audit, your working hours become more and more ridiculous. Any internal issues arising in the office means you'll be stuck in the office until 8 or 9 pm. Sometimes, during the weekend, you'll spend your time in your office, buried under paper works and documentations, instead of taking your family for a walk in the park.
 
One morning, on your way to get your copy of The Star, you realized that Ah Kau is no longer in his stall. So is his rundown motorbike. Instead, there's another young Chinese guy at the stall.
 
"What happen to Ah Kau?" You ask out of curiosity.
 
"Oh, he is still around, but he is no longer taking care of this stall as he has opened up a new grocery shop down town. I am running this newspaper stall for him."
 
"Ok," you smile. You feel happy for Ah Kau. "At last he manages to improve his life."
 
Your normal life continues. A year passes by and at the end of your company's fiscal year, you're rewarded for your effort with a 5 months bonus pay-out by your employer. Wow. Now that is a very handsome reward. You feel your effort has been equally compensated. To celebrate, you decide that it's time to trade your 5-year old Proton Wira to the latest Honda Civic model. It won't be much a problem to you to get a loan scheme from the bank as your pay slip will provide you an easy gateway to access financial help from any bank.
 
One day, the hardest reality of life hits you right on the face.  The company that you've been working for years announces that they're moving their business to China for cost and competitive reason and has asked you to find a job somewhere else. "What?" You scream out cold. "I got a lot of liabilities on the card! Who's gonna pay for my mortgage? My car? My credit card? My gym fees? My bills?" You yell like there's no way out.
 
This is the first time you feel let down by your own employer. All your hard work seem to go up on the smoke. You feel sick. You now hate your company.  On the way home, you stopped by at a mamak restaurant for a cup of teh tarik while pondering about your future. Alone.
 
Suddenly you saw this new, shiny BMW 3 series being parked nearby. And to your surprise, it was Ah Kau. Yes, Ah Kau who used to sell newspapers nearby your old apartment. "What happened to old Ah Kau?" You whisper to your self.
 
Ah Kau still recognizes you, and sit next to you, and shared his story.
 
To make it short, Ah Kau had accumulated his money from selling newspapers to open more stalls, one after another. Every new stall is run by his workers so that he focused on opening more and more stalls, which in turn give him more and more money. Over the years, he had accumulated enough cash to open up new grocery store while at the same time buying more assets to grow his wealth. And his current wealth and success is achieved without any loan or financial help from banks and other financial institutions.
 
There you go. That's the story.  While Ah Kau is set to become financially free, you're back to where you're started before. Ground zero.
 
Before leaving, Ah Kau gives you a familiar quote, "Biasalah hidup. Kadang kadang ok, kadang kadang tak ok."
 
He gives you a pat on the back and walks away. 
 
In reality, if you're observant enough, there are a lot of Ah Kaus out there, that you will see every day and every where you go. The names are different, but inside them is every character of Ah Kau. They might be Uncle Dorai, Ah Chong, Pak Abu, Makcik Gemuk, Pak Man nasi lemak or others.
 
They look to be struggling on the surface, but if you look carefully and compare with you life, many of them are living with little or no liabilities. They ride an old 'kapcai' bike. They live in an old rundown house. They don't have credit card to swipe. They wear a 10-year old shirt and short. No new, shiny Toyota Harrier. In short, their living means are far below than yours. But what you don't realize is that many of them can save more money than yours, and over the years generate enough money to expand their business, or invest in properties. Their asset columns are much thicker than that of yours.
 
So the next time you see Ah Kaus, never look down on them, and never under estimate them. Or else you're up for a harsh reality lesson.

:::Satu Lagi Omongan Kosong:::

Sudah lama agaknya aku tidak menulis blog. Ada kalanya terfikir sendirian, untuk apa blog ini. Kenapa aku menulis blog ? Oh rupanya sudah ku ulas sebelum ini. Tapi sudah pasti sebab utamanya adalah kerana tugas ku yang memerlukan aku untuk bertugas di luar. Blog ini adalah tempat untuk aku berkongsi pengalamanku ketika berada di negeri orang.

Tetapi bulan ini genap setahun aku berada didarat tidak bertugas di laut. Jadi tiada pengalaman yang dapat dikongsikan. Didarat tidak banyak perkara yang menarik yang berlaku padaku. Kebanyakannya adalah rutin harian biasa sepertimana mereka yang lain. Kini aku seperti mereka yang menganggur, mahu mencari kerja..Tetapi masih sayangkan MISC sebenarnya. ^_^.. Ku cuba cuba memohon melalui jobstreet tetapi withdraw kebanyakan application kerana rasanya masih belum bersedia. Cuma satu kubiarkan, application under consideration untuk satu resort terkenal di Melaka.

Jawatan sebagai pensyarah UiTM juga terbuka. Aku sudah mengisi borang dengan lengkap. Sudah kumasukkan kedalam sampul, tetapi belum ku pos lagi. Masih berfikir. Adakah aku sudah bersedia ??

Perniagaan online ku. Alhamdulillah, barang-barang ku sudah habis dijual tetapi bukan melalui online ^_^. Tetapi melalui jualan di UIA, Mardi dan Astuty Boutiqe. Modal telah dipusing semula dan barang niaga telah diberi kepada adikku di Melaka untuk test market di sana.

Esok salah seorang sahabatkan berkahwin, Tahniah ya.. Secara jujurnya, aku cemburu..Huhu * warning to Mr Hatiku *_* * eheh * tetapi juga memahami kita hanya merancang dan Allah yang menentukan. Aku sendiri sahaja perlu menguruskan banyak perkara dan masih banyak lagi yang belum selesai...
