Miss Ismail

I received a call yesterday afternoon for job interview in Kepong.
However, since I am one psycho emotional lady and he started the conversation with Miss Ismail instead of acknowledging my given name, I feel a bit offended.
Thats my dad's name for goodness sake!
Think first before make any calls.
He sounded like Malaysian Chinese , can't he tell from the name and have a bit of education to address people name properly rather than just call me right away without thinking?

Hahaha.. actually thats not the real reason I am deciding to pass the interview, the main reason after investigate and ask around about the company, I find it is wise for me to pass.
Not worth it to give my best shot and I sense another crappy job!
Yeah! maybe i am being sceptical but yet my heart is telling me not try.
I am believing my heart more than anything now.
I believe more will come soon.
I just need to select wisely so I won't get trap anymore.

Although, I am jobless my online store still can sustain me for my daily expenses anyway. Not much and uncertain but enough for me to live for.

Worst come to worst I still can started my own flea market just to survive. I have done this before anyway. What it takes is efforts to survive!

Yesterday evening end up at Sg Wang and Pavillion. Pain to my head seeing so many people and feel giong back right away. But hey ! my parking at Starhill had increased to RM7 from Rm5. I need to make it worth it! Normal la I am particular about parking fees.

I am looking for parkson since I have RM100 parkson voucher.
Thought of buying myself a swimsuit for my coming trip.
I really wanna R&R in style there.
Then just remember I have one descent one at home then end up buying one comfortable casual shoes instead for the trip.
I guess my medium size red backpack will be enough for 5 days 4 nights stay there.
Can't wait , I may settle for one day ground tour then will explore the place on my own. Thought of renting a small scooter. I am not sure whether I still remember how to ride this machine and worst come to worst a mountain bike will do for my transport.
Off course I need to bring myself a compass and small dictonary on local language.
I also thought of enjoying local food.
Can't wait for my small little adventure soon!!!!!
I want this to be my most precious adventure ever.
Training hard to get myself fit for this journey!!!!!

Why me

Very busy today.
As usual meeting and meeting, with clients, vendors and also staff.
Sick of it !
What to do?
When he said to others I am represent him when he is away.
Basically , I am his eyes and his ears when he is away.

For example just now stucked in the meeting , well talking about Finance is not a problems.
Negotiating term is just a piece of cake for me .
Then they talked about technical, I am trying hard to understand and absorb whatever information register to my brain and start processing the data. Well since my pentium is not upgraded and dont even have anti virus or security so more or less a bit corrupted. kekekeke..

When I updated him in Singapore on Finance side for the meeting, he then asked me about the circuits and codes.
Hahahahaha again you are testing the wrong woman... kekekeke
Based on my notes, I just read it out via the phone as if I am a pro and talking about it until he is speechless on the other end. kekekeke

Thank God! its not the face to face updated, if not sure fail because I dont know hell what am I babbling about.

Anyway, to make thing more convincing I aske him question on solution for his technical side as well as proposed (of course general proposal) on possibilities to resolve this error occured.

Smart heh!

Anything in his house is my matters too.
The maid, the guards, the drivers , the properties and basically everything about him.

3 months in this position , I have wrote numerous letter of complaints to the MD and CEO.
I can see improvement of service in various problems arise. Ah! can't imagine my letter is damn powerful!
What I had learned in previous company really helps me.
If problems go to the highest authority and make big fuss and huge complains just to get better services.

Tough job!
Tough position!
Many people hate me along the way.
Many enemy I make along the way.

I am thinking to withdraw from this position.
My 1st attemp, failed!
I thought of trying again.... should I do that again?
or should I just wait until end of contracts???

I just can't wait for mid Sept.
I wanna R&R and enjoy myself to the fullest.

Pretty Girl - Game Plan

I am too exhausted this week after too many attacks from my enemies. The attacked came from all over the place until my mind feel numb.
As usual I remain silence and keeping myself mum.
This company , I can say in very critical situation unless :
1. Terminate that agressive fella
2. Terminate that politician fella
3. The owner to step out from the cocoon.
Today I made very drastic decision and also against my norm principal.
I insist on beauty with brain or the ugly with brain but yet here I am breaking my own rules and just hired a girl just because she is pretty.
This is my strategy against my 2 enemies.
Since the owner refuse and strongly disagree to sign on my termination letter, I need to use this tactic in order to survive.
In battle sometimes we need to distract our enemies and here I am using this tactic to distract them in order for me to survive until end of my contract.
Hope this will work until I strategize again for my next plan....

King of Hyginotic Broad Bean's Prisoner

My name is Elanora Elmm. I was snatched away from the King of Perfectto Lettue (King Perf) to King of Hyginotic Broad Bean (King Bean) beacause of my expertise in multi tasking and make thing work in the castle. I was known as a good assistant to the King. I was brought into this new castle called 'Castle of Finggie Sanita'.

My presense in the castle is not welcome by King Bean's 2 Generals. One is General Fukkio Stupido (Gen Lion) and the other one is General Assie Foolo (Gen Assie). Both Generals are fighting for power. Between these two Generals, Gen Fukkio is the most aggressive.

To cut the story short, since I came to the castle, Gen Fukkio never stop attacking me and also the King Bean. King Bean as usual remain silence and never show off his power as King. This leave me Elanora fight her own battle to ensure the castle run smoothly and try my best to protect the maids in the Castle.

One day, I was attacked by Gen Fukkio due to Gen Assie bad words on me. King Bean was aware on the whole situation but trying his best to keep me calm and make sure me not to loose my temper.

I did send letter of termination of my service, however due to 6 moons contract thumb print with the castle, i can't escape although I feel its hard to receive the attacked from both Generals.

King Bean told me I am doing a good job! But hey!!!! I am Elanora... suffer mentally and emotionally. I have to put my face strong and not to re act on such attack.... uwwwwaaaaaaa ... I Elanora cried and cried and cried at my Secret place near the Rabbit Hole at mushroom enchanted forest.

What should I do ? What should I do???
King Perf make me suffer and I am suffering too.... God! did Elanora have done something bad??? Why need to torture her? Is there any Prince to save this damsel in distress???

Malaysian Drivers 2

Here goes my defination on Malaysian Drivers attitude based on my every day on the road observation..

The Oportuinist
They will in and out of the line just to get to their destination. As long as we leave some gap to our queue... here they are... trying force in with their poker face with full of selfishness. Very irritating isn't it??

The Fickle minded
They will be at the left and then at the right and then at the left and at the right and on and on and on... they just cannot make up their mind!!!!! so headache!

The emotional
Beware of this person. We don't know what they are thinking. We don't know whether they just got fired or bf or gf dumped them or their wife just ran away with other man or hubby screwed her bestfriend. You never know....So if you overtake them just because they are too slow or you just wanna to overtake them... they will overtake you back and break right away and make you horn them. Well honking them will not solve the problem. They will get more emotional some may get violence and try to find trouble. Depends on their mood....
If possible change lane and if can use other road better.Just stay away if you wanna be out of trouble!

The Hot temper
Almost similar with the emotional one. Only that this type will really harm you.

I will write more on other type next time...

My computer hate me

I was up working since 5am for 2 days in a row.
At least 4-5 hours stuck in front of computer before heading to morning shower.
My shoulder and neck end up stiff like wood.

Tired and exhausted but what counts is my efforts to work and move forward for the sake of getting out of employment under other Bosses.
I want to be my own boss.
Trying hard to get out from corporate employment world and move towards self employment.

My acer laptop was damn slow for pass 2 months.
I end up purchase a desktop last month just to make thing speed up.
But getting use to get some programme compatible to window 7 are really tiring.
I am trying hard to be patient and control my anger.
I end up with frustration for the last 2 days.
I can't install my flash player and my attempt to edit and develop my new online store really distrupted.
I have my own deadline to catch.
Festive season and end of year business is coming and I need to catch up before mid Sept.
If not all my plan go down to drain....:(

I just pray hard to God grant me more patient....and my computer to co operate with me.

My Fruitty Weekend

Last Friday was not so happening.
Problem after problem at my work place.
I feel tired to crack my head and try to maintain calm and try my best to solve it one by one.
While I was driving home, my headhunter who introduce me to this new workplace, called me.
mmmmm... well she were asking me about how am I doing in this company.
My feedback was easy, don't do business with this company again if you want to maintain good rapport and not to spoil talented people future. Basically in harsh statement I would said " This is craps and hopeless company".She asked me to stay at least 6 months. I will not comment on that and this is my future you are talking about dear. Don't make me scream at you. So stop it!!! i am trying to be nice here....

I was rolling on my bed at 8.15am , and received a call asking me to bring her for baby clothes shopping. So Saturday end up, spend time at Jusco selecting baby clothes. Really get crazy to see all these cute baby clothes. Since she is expecting baby girl, well end up buying many pink including the hat and many more. I believe she will end up a princess.

Sunday, since this is last weekend to eat in public before 7.00pm, I really wanted to to eat as much as I can.
Brunch at Ampang , Yong Tau Foo, then eat Lamb Fried Rice , Cendol and ABC Special. Yummy!!! Then walk at Wangsa Maju Walk. Almost afternoon drive all the way to Bangsar for Pasar Malam. I end up having dinner at Devi's corner, mmm my favourite Nasi Lemak with Mutton. Bought grapes, sweet potato,oranges and sweet pears.

While I am writing this entry, I am also waiting for my sweet potatoes to boil and do the laundry.
Later may process 3 orders just came in.
My other store still not ready to be launched yet!
Next week , thought of not going out and wanna spend time with my other store, Hope can launch by next week.

Tomorrow... another recruitment day!!!!!. Hate it and at same time my worst enemy coming back from Yangon. So I need to stay calm and strong!!! Corporate game never been easy to handle without strong EQ.

Lower down my expectation

I came from very tough and demanding environment...
Expectation on work quality is high.
I try my best to lower down my expectation on my people to suit their capacity..
I can't lower myself to low!
Thats nonsense... we are doing business not running a charity organisation.
But wait a minute... even charity organisation emphasis in good and quality service.

Well... today I received one resignation.
There are talks about me flying around this organisation and it fly to my ears.
I am too hard on these people, maybe.
Whatever! I can never please people.
and I will never do that because I don't care what people say about me.
My ultimate objective to give good service to people who employed me.

But if you decided to hang around shaving your beard and shine your nails in this office, well you are dealing with the wrong leader here.
I am one result orientated person.
I will guide and teach you but I can't concern too much on how you do it.
If I need concern on these small things, how do you expect me to focus in bigger thing?
OK put it this way.. I employed 6 people since I joined almost 3 months to this organisation.
1 left within 24 hours then I fired one with 24 hour notice and then I have remaining 4 person. Not bad!
opppsss!!! one more resigning after 1 weeks... ah left with 3 person.

My responsible is higher now.
Leading one management office can be a tough challenge when you are out there fighting with only few followers. I mean followers who can accept your ideology and believe in you.
OK people !!!!! my recruitment me is on the way!!!!!!

Aishshshshshshs.... feel tired but hey... I am looking for another job.. hopefully lady luck knocking my door.

Hopefully this year of Tiger over soon...
I need to get rid of all these bad luck. hopefully coming new year is good for me!
I will stay positive... and do whatever I can.
