so after spending couple of hours in the office on eid day today, i decided to treat myself with some retail therapy.

so i walked to pavilion (i consider walking to pavilion from my office as a work out btw). went to the usual shops, decided not to buy anything.

just when i thought my moolah is save, i made mistake by entering parkson.

i first went to brand x counter, with intention only to buy the treatment essence - mine is almost finished. then the sales person started to tell me that i needed only couple more points for me to pick up free stuff with the existing points that i had collected so far. the free stuff offered happened to be the cleansing oil, which is something that i already used, and mine is almost finished too. so i 'had' to buy another moisturizer set, which happened to be on sale. the moisturizer comes in set which also contains the treatment essence in smaller package, which i so need for traveling purpose. it also comes with facial mask, which i just thought of buying this morning.

so anyway, turns out, i got 100 ringgit voucher from this purchase. i quickly go to the shoe section and try to find a nice shoe for work. did not find one. so i went to the handbag section with a mission... i MUST find a handbag more than 100 ringgit so i can spend the vouchers!

so the hunt begins. finally, i found myself a handbag that i think is nice, but obviously priced more than 100 ringgit. the handbag is 200++ ringgit, so i had to add another 100++ ringgit.

happy with 2 big shopping bags, i went back to my car and went home.

in the car, got me thinking, did i just spent money on unnecessary stuffs? i didnt think it was any waste of money since i actually needed the stuffs that come together with the other stuff that i bought. eventually i will buy them too, separately. so why not buy all in one shot right? to me this is nothing different than 'beli barang pukal' concept. or is this a shopaholic talking? no? what do you think?

before you answer, presenting.. my new handbag!! could you die?

Qatar Airways

So I got to fly business class with Qatar Airways. The seat was spacious. I got to pick my seat, so I picked the one at the back all by myself. Immediately, I tried all kind of seat adjustment... including converting the seat into a bed.

30 min after take off, we were offered lunch from the menu.

And more food:

As if it was not enough, they also gave me, Godiva chocolate... and very very nice coffee... (NOT complaining)

Other free stuffs that I got were including amenities kit - traveling socks and eye mask, and beauty kit - lotion, moisturizer, lip balm, comb etc.

Of course, the entertainment packages were great! I watched 3 movies - Shawshank Redemption, Cyrus ( heh, i've always liked stupid movie like this, turned out, it wasn't too stupid), and Nodame Cantabile II... and series of friends and family guy in between.

The Qatar Airways crew were of course, super helpful and friendly too. All in all, I gave them 4.2 stars!

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go


OK, all set to go (I think). Called my trusted cab to pick me up to go to the airport. I wish there's somebody to be there at the airport to bid me off.. but I guess will have to be all independent by myself. Oh well, I better get used to it.

Bye people! Be good, and have fun with me not around! (I actually write this on stick-on notes and paste them on my team's office doors)

today is a sleepy day for me. couldnt sleep well last night. i even cancelled a meeting today, just because i cant think anymore. so i wanted to leave early today - at about 5pm (early right?).

so senang lenang lenggang pegi masuk kereta... jeng jeng jeng

i couldnt start my car. guess why?

i forgot to turn off the car lights this morning. am pretty sure my car is supposed to make a weird sound to indicate/ remind the driver to turn the light, but obviously, i didnt hear it

now, am back in the office (i mentioned i couldnt work because i couldnt think anymore - just too sleepy) waiting for my housemate to go to klcc, and will drive her CRV back to home since 'battery jump' is not possible because the car park is still full (not accessible for other car)

hai time-time cmnih la mengharap white knight in shining armor datang selamatkan. or maybe in modern days... in shining black car kot?

doha trip PLAN part 1

so here are the places that I plan to go to during my trip next week~

  • Islamic Museum of Art – free, tour available at multi-media guides

10.30 to 17.30 Walking distance from souq wakif

  • Souq Wakif- It’s best to arrive early in the morning or after 5pm because most of the stalls are closed between 1pm and 4pm. Get lost in the alleyways, and snare yourself a bargain.


  • Villaggio Mall: The best place to spend some riyals is in the air-conditioned, Venice-like splendour of the Villaggio Mall, which has kilometres of shopping

"i heard you are going to doha?"

"yes, am going on nov 6"

"yeah u deserve a break"


i had a list. a to-do list. a to-do list while my boss is out of office this week. why i need such list? because #1 - i have a lot of work (duh!) #2 - i find it hard to do actual work when my boss is free and available. don't get me wrong, i love my boss (who happens to be my mentor as well), and we are good friends, but she; like other bosses... tends to micromanage. what does that mean? well, let's look at the real wikipedia, shall we?

micromanagement is a management style where a manager closely observes or controls the work of his or her subordinates or employees. Micromanagement is generally used as a negative term

so anyway, going back to my point about the list, guest what? i only managed to do 25% of it! why do you think??


because i micromanage too lah!! i dont even have time to do other work, sebab sibuk follow up with my techs' work. to be honest, i dont actually think micromanagement is a negative thing. to me, it's like coaching, like teaching a man how to fish.

so anyway, earlier today we, the young engineers had a session with THE godfather of our company today. and he quoted:

"A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves. - Lao Tzu"

now, it made me feel bad. i micromanage my team all the time... they must have not liked me that much. hehehe. let's look at the real life example and you will understand why.

L.. so have we made this comparison with this number?
C... so what is today's density?
W... so proving on M-971 dah siap?
K... so what do we do about this issue? (i usually know what the answer is, just testing him)
E... pls make this tab red, and the other one white, then have small-small tabs in between them
R.. pls be reminded to call them for MOV status
M.. reports for last loading received?

i should go find a book and learn to be a better leader (and person). will share with you the 'after' result!
