love always win

once you're in love, nothing else matters anymore - including your friend.

it's true, however you want to deny it. trust me, i know.

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!
