Business Trip@Jakarta & Surabaya

This trip was a real challenge for me. I literally planned the whole thing: the schedules, the appointments, the flights, the lodging as well as logistic to each client. And I did all these alone! It was quite challenging but this will not be the last trip; there are more to come.

Of course, I was really excited and had been looking forward to this trip a lot because one, I wanted to know how things go and if it will be under my control and two, I planned it all so, of course I wanted to see if things would turn out well.


We left to Jakarta on Sunday afternoon and well, Jakarta is somewhat not what I had imagined lol I imagined it to be clean and organised. Much to my horror, the traffic here is comparable to the one I experienced in Bangkok.


Though the room is not as awesome as the one I had previously, at least there is a bathtub in the bathroom too for me to take a hot bath after a long tiring day. I spent 75% of my time in Jakarta on roads, man! It was really exhausting and drained my energy a lot.


We had to leave to Surabaya on Thursday morning and then headed back to Kuala Lumpur on the same day in the evening. Fortunately, we had a one-day Haji break on Wednesday. Believe it or not, I spent my whole day in the hotel! Now you see how I couldn’t be arsed to leave the hotel and tour around Jakarta.


The worst nightmare was after our only appointment with a client in Surabaya, we had to foolishly waited for 4 hours before we could check-in and proceed to the international departure area where at least you could shop and such.

When I got home, it was around midnight and after the unpacking and cleaning myself up, I had a great Skype chat with Cyy. It’s been ages! It’s really nice to have someone you can talk to when you got home especially when you are living alone outside as it does make you feel like home..

Find My iPhone


Please help return my lost iPhone. If found, call you-gotta-be-kidding-me.

In Malaysia, once you lost your iPhone, that’s it for you.

Money cannot buy happiness. brings pain to the citizens where the country leaders are all corrupted and act selfishly. brings fatality in the community where people are robbed and murdered. brings curse in the family where siblings despise and fought among themselves to gain the wealth left behind by their parents. my case, it brings fear and then, distance between me and my parents.

However, if you think about it, money can buy happiness. brings wealth to the country and its people. brings wealth to individuals who will satisfy themselves to obtain what they want. brings joy in the family where they have shelter, food, clothing and more. my case, it brings peace in my family.

They say ‘Money is a root of all evil’ but, I say ‘Human beings are the devils themselves.’ Money is just a dead object. It never controlled and ordered us to do anything. We are the ones who let ourselves being controlled by our greed and thus, typical human beings put the blame on money.

I have no idea why I started this post but I started to see the terror of what money can bring after talking to that person. I’m scared.

What I Want To Be


When I was a lot younger, I wanted to be an astronomer..

..until I learned that becoming one in Malaysia is useless.

I then wanted to become a biomedical scientist..

..until I learned that becoming one in Malaysia is useless too.

So I thought of becoming a pharmacist instead..

..but it was not in my interest at all.

And therefore, I took into consideration in becoming an accountant..

..however, I do not enjoy working in the office doing paper works and such.

I left Malaysia and went to Shanghai for a year and involved myself in a gaming industry..

..but due to some complications on my legality status to work there, I came back to Malaysia for good.

Now I am a marketing officer who covers the market in South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand..

..but my job scope covers administrative works, business development, customer servicing, marketing, market research and sales.

I guess things do not always go the way you wanted them to, no?

走着 走着


没有什么能阻止我 什么都做得到

没有什么难得了我 什么都做得好

对自己的要求很高 做什么都要最棒

也很在乎别人对我的看法和想法 做什么都希望大家开心 而忽略了自己的感受

觉得自己很坚强 很独立 不管自己有多么的不开心 伤心难过 都会一直保持大家喜爱的微笑

想让他们知道 不管发生什么事 乐观的我是不会消失的

不管是 家人 朋友 或是 同事

我都要保持最好的我 最棒的我

但 我真的好累了

The Be-early and The Belated

It has been 5 years since I last celebrated my day with my family. Finally, the day has come, when I had the chance to celebrate the day with them. Though it was a be-early celebration, it is far better than none.

I made a trip home for a few days and my, it was so good to be home. Everything felt so comfortable around me. My plan was doing a pot-luck with my friends at mine with my family. Everyone came and the night was fun.

It was a great get-together and the house was lively. It has been such a long time since I had a good laugh. Good to be home.

On the same week, I had my belated with my friends back in Kuala Lumpur. However, all my hometown friends were not able to make it. Quite disappointed though but on the other hand, more than expected number of people came! I was grateful, seriously.

I decided to have my belated at Shabu-Shabu Restaurant, my all-time favourite place for food. This place is definitely worth your money to have nice food and most importantly of all, you will have fun with your friends. That is the main reason I chose the place.

It has been 2 years since I last went there so, it was good to be back.

I ended the night with having my brother to come and pick me up from the Puchong and we had a short yam-cha at this random shop in Kuchai Lama. And had I mentioned that the guy I fancy was with us too? *blush* But so far, there is no progress yet *sobs*

The Birthday

“You are sneaky. You don’t have it posted on your Facebook info but everyone on your profile knew.”

Yeah, I did it on purpose. I removed my birthday from my Facebook, just being curious on who, among my many friends, remember or bothered to check on my birthday.

You know it is more meaningful that people remember and made an effort to give you a call (thank you), you know who you are, or either WhatsApp-ed or texted you. Also those who posted their wishes on your wall. I really do appreciate it. Loving you all more now.

I had a be-early birthday back in Kuching with my family and friends and it was fun! I will be having a belated birthday celebration this coming Saturday though. Hope it is gonna be good.

However, there wasn’t any special celebration or whatsoever on the day itself. But, I did go out, instead of staying at home. I went to this Super Networking event organised by KL Expat. It was fun as I went alone and knew no one there. Then sooner or later, you made a few new friends and then, learning that it was your birthday, to have people that are not very close to you, singing birthday song was really cool!

Of course I hope we will still be in touch again and yeah, we exchanged name cards which was the primary purpose of the event. Oops, no picture at all from the event.

My bad.

Two Months

Few weeks ago marked my two months’ of work in Kuala Lumpur. I would not say it is a job that will take my life ie. being really busy and I had to work my ass off. It is more like either you will get really bored or you will get really busy. There is no proper trend or what you will call, peak period or otherwise. Everything happens and changes really fast eg. stock market and yes, you must adapt to the change. You got to have a dynamic personality else, build that personality within you!

If the income can flow in like the stock market, that’s even better.

When I learnt that it is normally a 3-month probation period, I set a goal to end my probation period within two months and good gracious, I did it. There is an increment, though not much, but it is something. Something to boost my confidence, motivation, bla bla whatever positive shit you can come up with.

I have yet to set another goal.

Probably a pay rise within 6 months counting down from when my probation period ended? Or maybe, closing my very first own deal before year 2010 ended?

Would love to earn EUR instead of MYR. How awesome is that?

I would not say this is the most exciting job ever but this is definitely a great experience to gain. You were able to meet high-profile people, exchanging name cards, sitting down having meetings or doing presentations and probably, dine with them, socialising. I will not say  I am a perfect people person and that I am perfect in socialising.

I suck too, sometimes.

I would say I have them but I am still learning and improving.
