World Milk Day

I was walking to my Gym and overheard a girl asking her man " Brad! do I look fat?" and I heard the guy answer the girl , "No Dear!!! you are not fat!"
I walked slowly and let them pass me.
Huwaahahahahuwahahaha.... I almost burst!!!! manage to control my laughter...
If I am the girl I don't want to ask that guy. Although he is my boyfriend or whoever he is.
That guy is damn fat!!! very overweight and the girl is obviously chubby and plum...
Silly Girl you got to ask the right person for your important question.
I know I know I am very very bad to say this but hey.... please ask the right person for honest answer.
Sunday!!! I read on the newspaper about the World Milk Day @ Pavillion.
They are giving away free milk.
Well I am so ambitious to be part of the crowd.
Reached there arggghhhhh totally let down.
Nothing much to expect just an event organised by Dutch Lady!!!
Well, I end up went straight ahead down to check on my Honeymoon Dessert Bar.
Its a long weekend, as usual I feel I wasted it.
Ok next weekend I will plan properly.

Work that body

This week everytime came back from Gym , I will watch Japanese series title Bambino. Lead actor is Matsumoto Jun the one played that Hana Yori Dango. Story about a passionate Chef. Its all about pasta and pasta. When I watch they cook pasta look so delicious and feel like having one on my table.
mmmm since tomorrow is a holiday so maybe i should experiment some pasta. Ehehehehe ... look like somebody gonna burn the kitchen again!!!!

These 2 weeks was working hard with my body.
I will work out for almost 40 minutes.
Last night was the most suffering part.
Doing cardio work out with my personal trainer.
OMG! hurt every part of my body.
Hope this work to kill off that flabbies around my waist.
Dreaming about having a nice body is a beautiful dream.
But to make it happen... OMG!!!! I feel like dying....with all the diets... drive me crazy!!!!

Tomorrow I saw Cheras Gym Schedule , they have inline dancing at 10am.
Thought of driving there and have some work out and sauna then back home to continue on my book. Or alternatively , I can just do pilates at home following that DVD I just bought.
Its all depends on my mood on waking up in the morning... yes!!!! I have been up very very early every morning to hit the road during working days....give me a break...for some kit kat! ehehehe... its all depends on the gravity from my bed....eheheheh...

Wait for my report on the breakthrough!!!!!

I would end my tonight entry with this quote from Mark Twain

" Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great!"

I keep away from that kind of people. He always belittle my ambition and always commented I made a mistake everytime I made one step towards my ambition. I feel bless to be out!!!! Ciao...

3rd Day here

3rd day.... ahahaha finally manage to find my way back home.
Many things to be done in this place.
At least I am now getting started and hope can finalise some issues by this Saturday.
Whatever.... it is still early to judge thing over here.
I just need to play some drama here and there.

Last night, my 1st gym session.
I don't even know to use the gym equipment.
So, asked one of the trainer there to help me with the machine.
I was a lil bit angry when I overheard him called one of his Personal Instructor and say, ' Bro! help this Filipino girl! she need a trainer'.
Filipino your head! I am Malay le Malay le...

Then when get to know this Trainer he was talking to me as if I am a foreigner here.
After using one steps machine for 15 minutes, I hear echoes from his voice and everything started blurring. I grabbed his arm and said I am fainting! I am fainting!
He panicked!!!
He quickly lead me to the floor mat and asked me to lie down with both leg up on the gym ball.
Then we started a conversation again while I closed my eyes and rest.
He thought I am Filipino all the way. Sakit Hati ku!
I asked him what make he think I am Filipino?
He said his Boss told him (the guy who called him to attend to me)
He also mentioned plus my weird looks and my weird English accent.
I speak in Malay mix with English but its come out weird accent too and end up....
After conversation with him he still think I am not Malaysian instead I am Thais!
At least he said one of your parent is Thai! uwaaaaaa...
Naze Sono yo na (in Japanese means Why llike that?)
Whatever!!!! I just want to work out happily to avoid jam back home... lalalalala

Anyway, I had done few cardio work outs!
I hope to loose at least 5 kg within these 3 months and get back to my ideal weight.
Rina! Gambatei!!!! jia yor jia yor...

2nd Day here

How should I write for my 2nd day experience here?
Seriously I am not familiar with the road back home.
I took almost 2 1/2 hours to reach home on 1st day and same case happened on 2nd day.
The feeling??? Sucksss!!!!
I can say hopeless case in term of journey back home.
Traffic jam are so CRRRRAAAAZZZYYY!!!

Yesterday night end up sat in with one of Fitness First Consultant.
Yeah! again I am being difficult with people for not giving up my credit card details.
The consultant got very frustrated with my stubbornness ahahahaha so end up one of manager in charge being called to convince me. Of course I still in rejection mood.
They just gave up to my demand... yippeey!!!

So today I am very positive to start my exercise.
Ahahaha again see how long I will last.
My diet is getting along quite well with Yong Tau Foo soup (strictly 3 items on tofu only) for breakfast and lunch. I opt to replace my dinner with fruit juice mix with wheat grass.
I give myself 3 month for the result.

How am I doing here???
Well 2nd day - more things coming up.
I have few types of character in the office to take care :
* Politicians
* Non performance
* Performing but no motivation
* The Rules breaker

How should I tackle this problem?
Part of my management re structuring process I am now in midst of strategising the Performing but no motivation one because for me I need these people support and be in my team.
With their co operation, I believe I can tackle the non performing and the rules breaker.
Well , how about the politicians - easy for time being I play the same politics or another word part of their game.
I am in it , baybeh!!!!

I am so excited with my new roles.
Yes! sounds a bit messy and tough.
But hey what is life without a challenge???

I will be very busy within thsese 3 months and hopefully can settle by then.

Hope! God give me more strength to complete my mission successfully.

My 1st day

My 1st day really make me have a big headache (migraine to be exact).
Maybe I push myself too hard this time.Over do it again!
Too much information and too much issues to solve.
Big time issues.
Most of the people I interviewed have problems on not clear job descriptions.
Yeah! need to see people one by one to understand each individual function.
Part of restructuring exercise that I need to do for this company.
I know its hard to do it but I need to put my brave face and just do it!
Today , I manage to see only 3 people ( more towards mid and lower level staff) but enough to give me migraine due to much input to absorb and digest.
Early in the morning already interviewed their COO for almost 2 hours plus 1 hour in the evening just to get better picture on whats on in this company.
I see opportunity every where from the issues highlighted but I need to sit down and strategise well to get the message through to the board!
The way I looking at it the organisation structure is out of place basically this one worst than my previous. (wahahahahaha.... me and my going crazy laugh0
Most of this staff actually looking up at me and have a high hope for me to turn around the company in term of business process. Ah!!!! too much pressure when all of them is looking up like this. I am suppose to come in as low profile person and make changes slowly but now look like I need to work fast and need to change the 'so called' culture here.
I don't know whether my book that I am working on currently will apply to this company.
Maybe it will be good to get the practical and at least my end result is proven to the world?
and I can start dreaming to share platform with John Maxwell to give self help talk to people.
Yeah!!! first I need to self help myself.
I am exhausted in seeing people but right now but I accomplish something today at least a prelimenary diagnosis of this company sickness.
That is good enough for first day... and next step to do a strategy to provide better solution.

Over the Rainbow

What is my favourite old song which I feel meaningful towards my life?
The answer will be Judy Garland song ' Over the rainbow'.
The lyrics is beautiful and meaningful.

" Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true

Somday I'll wish upon star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
away above the chimney tops
That' s where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh why can't I?

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow why, oh why can't I? "

O How I wish to be that happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow and see what's for me on the other side. Can I ever reach over and beyond the rainbow?
How much efforts do I still need to be there???

I am sitting here thinking and thinking on how to be the bluebird faster fly over the rainbow..

So Long and Farewell

Today is my last day at my three and half years workplace.
I feel a bit sad when driving out of the office.
I reached home and read a long email from my just x boss , of course I feel upset.
I can feel how he feel today and tomorrow and the day after tomorrow for not having each other around. For him to use to me reminded him in many things and for me to drive all the way to work and get use with all my tasks.... aiyoh! I am so devastated right now!!!!
No doubt we bitch about each other all the time. Yeah! that was me ahahaha..
Although, both of us always have disagreement in many things but yet the feeling towards each other is unexplained. Both actually feel heartbreaking to be departed.

Well, life must go on!
He always encourage us to move forward and be a successful people.
It is his advise that I listened , to leave and find other alternative if you think current one is not good enough or have limited chance for you.

I just hope he could develop his own team and bring the company to the next level as what he always wanted. However , I also hope he could learn from his mistake and try not to hurt too many people along the way up!

This is a big decision in my life as I always thought I can grow with the company and wish this could be my fixed destination until I retire. But this end up to be another stop and now I am moving on to the next station.
I am now looking forward to my new path and will face whatever comes with my brave face on!
Gambatei!!!! jia yor jia yor Rina God! please give me strength to survive in your world and please dont make me forget to prepare for another life too.

Ip Man and IP Man

Wet Sunday.... raining almost through out the day.
I was at Pavillion just now watched Iron Man 2.
I was there around 12.00 noon, thought it will be crowded with people but it was amazing since not many people at the Cinema. Well... when paid for the tickets then I understand why....
Ticket price comes with service tax (entertainment tax). RM12 + RM3 = RM15 per ticket. Not a good idea to bring girlfriend to cinema anymore. I guess all of us need to think of other alternative such as buy DVD and stay at home. Imagine 2 tickets = RM30 and 2 lunch can cost aroud RM25 here you go RM55 gone not to forget transportation cost and maybe some desserts to impress your love ones....Costly!!!!
OK back to Iron Man 2, well it was a very damn boring movie. Almost fall asleep but since paid so expensive need to stay awake to the end. However, it was a total let down since I was waiting for this movie ever since watched the 1st one.
Talking about Ip Man or IP Man. I read in fb many people is looking forward for this Ip Man. But at that time I pronounce it IP Man. I was quite sceptical when saw the poster it was a chinese movie and thought it was a Matrix in chinese version. Something got to do with Sci fi movie or something never come to my mind it was a Kung Fu movie.
One of my friends were telling me about this movie which is Bruce Lee sifu then only I am interested to watch.
I went to watch on Saturday at Cheras Leisure Mall. OMG!!!! love the movie so much. As usual since I was small I am a Kung Fu lover. I can watch Drunken Master and start practicing the steps on my own. ahahaha think about it I feel stupid!!!!
Tomorrow is my last day at work!
Nervous nervous nervous to enter new world soon.
New me new character new image...I will bring myself up to another level.
Currently, enjoying my hot honey nutmeg tea... so refreshing!
