Friend is like a Good Bra

I received a forwarded mail from one of my sisters and now I would like to share it to everyone who visits my blog.

Friend is a like a good bra; hard to find, supportive, comfortable, always lifts you up, never lets you down or leaves you hanging and finally, it is close to your heart.

Did not get to update my blog lately due to a lot of works. Well, it is not a bad thing. This shows that my manager is willing to give me more difficult task to do. =)

I was given another client's accounts to audit. It is a hardware shop and, oh my, there are a lot of things to do! Papers all over my table and I am amidst the boxes of files!

Messy table, I know

Files behind me =.=

I am really glad that I got to rest for two days before I start my work.

p/s: Initially I thought of bringing back my workload home. =.=

It's Christmas Eve. The fact that I could not celebrate Christmas with baby is agonizing. Knowing that baby has to work on Christmas Day broke my heart. It has already been one month. I really miss you a lot.

However, I believe we are able to learn ourselves more in this period of time. No doubt that we have grown a lot ever since we started our own jobs. No fights ever since the last one. How long was it? Hmm.. Too long that I could not remember. The thing that made me proud the most is that we have not been into a single conflict ever since I was back to Kuching.

I know that this journey ain't going to be easy if it is going to be handled by one person. I know that traditionally, guys are the ones who carry more burden in relationships. Sadly, in my opinion, it is not true. It got to be two persons helping each other to make things work. I believe in taking and giving.

You called my dad last week. I was worried but at the same time, glad to know that. You really gave me a surprise when you told me that you thought of calling my dad. Now that you had talked to him and I guess he won't have many questions about you. All that left is him looking forward to see you as he asked you when you will be coming over. Last night, my dad talked about you during the family dinner and gosh, my uncle caught me blushed!

Insight of My Workplace

Been working for 3 weeks already and now, finally, I am going to give you the insight of my workplace.

I have to wake up at 6.00 am every morning and depart by 7.00 am or else there will be a massive jam. (To my dear friends who know me very well, 'Don't worry. I've not been late to work, yet, thanks goodness.') Usually I will reach there by 7.30 am and have my breakfast at the restaurant nearby.

I am my own driver now :)

This, is where I work

This is the car that I drive everyday to work

This is the office (that's my bottle)

My seat!
How come there's nobody in the office? 'Cos I am always there before them. I stay the furthest among all of them.

Dating Tips

Last Sunday, I went to Star Cineplex to watch The WarLords with my brothers, uncle and my mother. As we were queuing up to buy food and drinks, I saw these:

Pretty cool, huh?

..I've been doing great. Drive on my own to work. Got a new laptop. Got a new handphone. It just feels so great to get everything I want.

Finally it is the second week of my internship and I'd been a handling a lot of clients' schedules.

Lately, I was given miscellaneous jobs such as tallying the figures with the extended trial balance, doing schedules that had not been done, calling up banks and clients as I had finished my first audit (awaiting confirmations from the other party).

But today, my manager passed me another client for me to audit. Seriously, in audit firm, I've learned a lot of companies' names and most of them are weird! The one that I am doing now is Warna Kelisa Sdn. Bhd. Not only that; I once came across with Warna Kembara! And guess what? It is not selling Kelisas (I ain't sure with the latter one) but beverages such as drinks and beers and cigarettes!

One of my friends in the firm whose friend is working in E&Y told her that she has been photostating lately. I was relieved that I chose to go Hii&Lee instead of E&Y.

Work can really make me forget about studies -- I forgot that the results were out on Monday; I forgot about online subject registration.

I am really thankful that the senior was willing to let us, the trainees, to handle the clients' accounts. Meaning we will be doing the whole audit process. There are still more for me to learn.

Lately, I was quite upset. Something bothered me a lot. I do hope that I am one of their circle of friends. I did not give up on this friendship. I hope they do treasure our friendship.

Next semester will be a challenging one. I hope I will do better this time.

Finally it has been a week since I am with Hii & Lee Chartered Accountants. Also, it has been a week since I learn to do audit.

Honestly, it ain't easy to learn things that you had never experienced in studies. I was grateful that the senior accountants handed over a client's case to me and Lydia (another trainee who is also under CPA Passport). We faced a lot of problems. Fortunately, Hii & Lee has nice and helpful colleagues. All of them are more than willing to help us. We always have fun during lunch.

On Christmas Eve, all of us will exchange gifts. This has always been a practice in Hii & Lee. All we have to do is to write our name on a piece of paper. You can even write what you want ie. description, location, colour, etc. etc. The only requirement is that the minimum price for the gift must be RM 25. Then, there's draw lot to see whom you shall give the gift to.

Before that, there is still one more thing that I am worried about. From next week onwards, I have to drive to work on my work and everyday, I have to stuck in the traffic jam after work for one hour before I reach home. Sighh..

First day of Internship

Today is the first day of my internship. Mixed emotions, of course. Woke up 5.30am and departed at 6.40am. Reached there around 7.00am and yes, I was too early. No sight of any customer at the restaurant nearby, my mother and I went to another shop to have breakfast.

The world is really small. My friend's sister is there for internship, also under CPA Passport! She purposely came back from Perth to do internship in Malaysia. During the briefing, I got to know that the accounting firm that I am now working in is the largest local accounting firm.

Unfortunately, my senior was on leave. She just gave birth. But still, the colleagues are very helpful. They asked me to have lunch with them and yeah, we got to talk. All of them work there not until 1 year. The most is 9 months and the least is 2 months.

Seriously, there are a lot of things that I will need to learn though it gave me a headache to digest everything. I admit that I cannot handle stress very well but so far, I am doing good.

p/s: I was given stationery in the firm. That is not the main point as the main point is I was told that each of us owns 2 toilet rolls! XD

I have a goal. However, obviously, I have a great obstacle. My father.

I am his one and only daughter, I know. Though he does not seem to appear loving and caring but deep inside him, he really cares. He is not the type of person to step down his status as a father and be nice to his children like friends. But, whenever I was down, he would give me a call, hoping I was alright. Whenever I was sick, he would do whatever he can even though my mother had to be sent over.

Being the one and only daughter is both a good and a bad thing. I want to reach higher than my current state. However, I do not have the power to fight my will.

Nonetheless, I won't stop here. Someday, I know, I will achieve my goal.

But I will not forget that I am always my daddy's girl.

Happy 7th Month

ah bi, happy 7th month..

Even though we can only talk for 1 hour everyday, I am very happy. I understand that both of us will be very busy with our jobs; I got only one job to handle but you got two. I really wish I could be there to give you massages, hugs and kisses.

To be honest, I am not devastated with the fact that we got separated because at least we have our own spaces and that we can have different stories to talk about. Besides that, I am able to learn to be independent. See, I managed to turn them off and I believe they will not contact me anymore.

Two months, two weeks and two days till we meet again. I believe two months will pass faster than we know. Plus, we have already made a promise that we will make these obstacles rewarding at the end of the day.

I will not stop missing you.

i really miss you..
