Speech

I hate giving speech.

Had to give one, (impromptu mind you!)
(Sigh....) tengah2 cakap tu tetiba my mind went blank and I was in silence mode for 10 seconds (a very long 10 seconds). Ntah apa I sambung cakap, I don't remember anymore...hahahhahaha :P

The speech was a farewell speech. Got invitation yesterday, and since the farewell was also for others (ramai la jugak) I don't expect they would want us to give speech (coz timing majlis tu sekejap jer). Ha...hambik...kena bagik speech... I really don't like public speaking.

Come to think of it, I wonder how come I hate public speaking now? I was in my school debate team when I was in form 4 and 5.

Hmm...pelik!

Arnab & Tax

I was busy at the kitchen when my hubby told me that my mum's rabbit is giving birth. There were 4 anak arnab. But one of it may not survive. Masa my hubby tengok anak arnab tu dah lahir, tapi kulit one of it dah tersiat and kaki dia dah hilang. Tinggal tulang kaki dia je... We suspected arnab jantan yang sekandang dengan arnab betina yang melahirkan tu punya kerja... Anyway, just to be on the safe side, my mum dah keluarkan arnab jantan tu keluar dari kandang and let it berkeliaran kat laman rumah. Skang ni I dah at my home. Tak tau apa cerita anak arnab putus kaki yang malang tu... I don't think dia boleh survive. Sedih lak rasa.

Petang, I went to kenduri doa selamat jiran kat kawasan perumahan ni. Makan2, borak2 and then balik rumah siapkan tax submission. Alhamdulillah, tahun ni tak payah bayar tax. Dah bayar extra pun dari potongan cukai bulanan. Form dah selamat di submit melalui e filing. Actually this is my first year pakai e filing. Senang gila sebab all the info from my EA form (penyata pendapatan) dah ada in the BE form. So just edit part relief jer... lepas semak and pastikan semua betul, just click button and send my submission form.

Lega tax dah settle. So can concentrate to plan my 6th Wedding Anniversary surprise to my hubby :) heheheh.... Apa nak buat eh?

This entry is dedicated to Iza :)

Heheheh.... Actually I was quite surprise ada komen for my entry yang dah setahun. Since soklan tu jawapannya panjang, so I dedicated this entry to Iza and to those who wish to attempt ACCA.

Anyway, just to inform you that I have a paper more to go (plan dah lari sebab paper yang satu tu kantoi...).


FYI, I started ACCA since 2003. Huhuhuh...punya lama kan? Coz ari tu ada setahun dua I berehat dari amik paper after I got married. I belajar sendiri jer... X de attend mana2 kelas. Dulu-dulu because I was posted at Eastern, tak de kelas kat sana. Pernah try berulang every weekend to KL to attend class. Tapi penatnya, Allah je la yang tahu. Tu tak campur ngan ongkos yang mengalir laju bak air terjun... Then, bila dah kawin and pindah KL, I still belajar sendiri sebab susah nak pi kelas coz all the class is either lewat petang and abis malam or conducted during the whole weekend. I find it not suitable for me since kesian kat hubby nanti sengsorang jer kat umah (plus, I memang malas pun! huhuhuhuh...)

And because I belajar sendiri, I took only 1 paper at one sitting. Tak berani dik nak amik bebanyak. Pernah try amik 2 paper, kantoi gak...(tu yang menambah lagi masa nak menamatkan pengajian tu...). To me, you boleh belajar sendiri. You have all the technology now. I have tried online learning with BPP and found it quite helpful for paper P1. I also bought BPP textbook + Taxation text book as my study textbook. I tried ACCA past questions, over and over again, until I understand the format and technique of answering the questions. I also a registered member of a free online learning web for ACCA http://opentuition.com/ where I can get notes and read shared tips from members. I highly recommended you to join this web. And since some of my colleague ada yang ambik ACCA and pi kelas, I also pinjam their notes if they happend to take the same paper as me :).

I'm lucky my company grant me 5 days study leave for each sitting regardless of how many paper that I took. Tapi sekarang dah kena utilise annual leave dah coz this paper that I'm gonna take in June is repeat paper...heheheh. The study leave is only for first sitting.

Back to the question whether nak amik professional cert like ACCA or go for Master?. IMHO, if you are considering to become a lecturer one day, perhaps it would be better if you go for Master. But if you want to stick to your current job (regardless your background), I would recommend you to take professional cert. This would be an added value for you, and you would be able to apply it in your job. Tapi biar la the cert tu recognised by your company and others (worldwide recognition la kiranya). Kalo nak amik ACCA pun boleh gak... Ada jer engineer yg amik ACCA ni. ACCA ni is not merely about accounting. It covers many other areas such as busines analysis, financial management, audit, tax, depending on the elective paper that you choose. Plus it is recognised worldwide.

Tu je la pendapat akak yang tak seberapa ni... but before buat keputusan, think about it thoroughly ya... Kalo tak tau jugak, istikharah la... Minta Allah beri petunjuk mana yang terbaik untuk kita...

Ok dik, Chaiyok!

(To my lil sis mimi, if you read this, plse leave comment yer...what do you think?)

Penat tapi....

I got home late today. Pkol 8.30 malam baru sampai umah. A big task waiting for me at home. Got message from my hubby petang tadi. His friend and family would like to spent a night at our home tomorrow. ALAMAK! My house is a disaster right now. Hehehhe...I'm sure you all wondering why la my house ni nak bersepah-sepah sedangkan bukan ada baby or budak kecik pun (baby besar ada la!). Actually x la bersepah apa...cuma berhabuk gila-gila jer... (and rambut i yg suka gugur berada di merata bahagian umah and kalo dikumpul dah boleh buat gumpalan hairball!) so nak kena operasi menvacuum satu rumah malam ni.

Huwaa.... penatnya....

Ok...nak pi start operasi ni... Sok tah pkol berapa la bangun pi kerja ni...

Leadership

I'm reading a book on leadership titled "The Leader Who Had No Title". Just finished the first chapter. Quite an interesting book. The first chapter was talking about leadership at all level. Hmmm... sounds familiar... Anyway, to summarise, being a leader does not mean when you are in the position of manager, or senior manager or general manager or ceo etc. It is actually starts even when you are a mere worker. Everybody within an organisation is a leader. We should show our leadership by showing a desire to be involved and a commitment to making a positive difference (quoted from the book). Show it by being truely excellent in our role. Just remember that every job is an important job.

Well, the concept of everybody is a leader; at least on their own, was found earlier (than this book at least) in the Quran.

"Ingatlah ketika Tuhanmu berfirman kepada malaikat: Sesungguhnya Aku hendak menjadikan seorang khalifah di bumi." (Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 30)


Yes... we all are leaders. But did we truely carry out our responsibility with Ikhlas and Amanah? Did we ensure that all the money that we received at the end f the month is justified with all the effort that we gave to our work. This is something that we need to think about... Some people berkira sangat dengan company. OT 30 minit pun nak claim. Yes...that is your entitlement. I didn't say that you shouldn't claim. But how sure are we that we truely spent 8 hours solelly for the work that been entrusted to us? Something that we need to ponder upon.

Semoga kita membawa rezeki yang halal kembali ke rumah untuk keluarga kita...Amin.

Eating Festival

I think this week is entitled to be named as eating festival. I had a performance review workshop at Hotel M*** KL. Just nearby the HQ. The workshop started on 10th until 12th (yes...I was working yesterday). It was a 'head throbbing' sessions as we discussed in details of the staff strength, weaknesses and development plan. And the session was from 8.30 am to 11 pm. We only stop for lunch, prayers and dinner. We also finalised the rating and ranking for all the 200++ staff. And at last on Saturday, we managed to finish it all...phew! What a relief.

Since the workshop was held at the hotel, of course the food was superb! Hotel food ma... what u expect? And since the food was superb, hehhehehehhe...(evil laugh) I had to admit that I ate a lot. I mean A LOT! But on the positive side - no rice at all :) Ratah lauk jer for lunch and dinner. And for tea break, kuih2 dia memang sedap. And it went on for 3 days (luckily it was 3 days only...if a week? isyk... bahaya!)

Today pulak, we have a wedding kenduri at our housing area. But dear hubby is on day shift today. So I went with my neighbours instead. One thing to tell you, sedap betul lauk kenduri tu. Isyk... memang banyak pun makan... Abis la diet den!

Tomorrow is monday....(sigh) Monday blues!

Kuliah Zohor

During lunch hour, I have this opportunity to hear a kuliah zohor at surau klcc. Actually, when I arrived at the surau the kuliyyah already 3/4. Anyway, sempat jugak got some tips from the penceramah (prof apa tah nama...x ingat...).

She told us about being isteri solehah...it all come back to this 3 words 'have, give, get'. For instance, if you have love, you give the love to your husband and you will get love from him. If you have 'curiga' towards your husband, you will treat him badly thus he will act 'mencurigakan'. It also works as 'u give kebahagian to ur hubby, u get kebahagian from ur hubby and u'll have kebahagian for ur life'. Got what I mean?

According to prof, we have positive or negative vibe that we can send to other people. Being married, of course kita tau 'luar dalam isi hati rahsia baik buruk' sang suami ni. If rasa hormat towards the hubby ni hilang, the hubby would sense it. Thus, bila ada org ketiga yang memandang tinggi @ menyanjungi hubby kita, that is where the sparks of affairs can begin. Lelaki kan ada ego... so the prof said, from time to time, feed your hubby's ego by puji-pujian to him (cakap la abg ni ensem ker...etc) and thank him frequently (tq for oving me...etc).

Prof also said there are 3 things that we need to watch out... Couple yang selalu gaduh, memang selalu buat this 3 things...

1) Being judgemental to your hubby - jangan menghukum terus...biar pun dia pernah buat salah, atau kekurangan dari kita (dari segi rupa, harta kecerdikan etc), kena tetap hormat dia sebagai suami.
2) Jangan rationalise tindakan buruk kita. Maksudnya, bila ada benda yang dia x suka kita buat, kita siap bagi alsan2 kenapa kita buat cam tu...
3) err.....tak ingat lak yang ketiga apa....sori....

Another tips, prof kata, sebelum tido, make sure salam suami, minta maaf dan minta dia redha kat kita. Dan kita juga digalakkan memaafkan org lain...buang segala negativity yang melingkari...sentiasa berfikiran positif. Sebab negativity ni melemahkan diri. Ketika sujud terakhir dalam solat, kita doalah semoga Allah berkati rumahtangga kita. Masa tengok cermin, kita doalah semoga suami kita akan sentiasa nampak kita cantik dimata dia. Prof kata, ketika di umah, penampilan mesti lebih cantik dan baik dari ketika kita keluar rumah pi kerja. Pakai la perfume kat umah, untuk suami kita...pahala banyak dari pakai perfume masa pi kerja (silap2 dapat dosa lak).

Anyway, I think the main message is, nak jadi isteri solehah, start dengan diri kita dulu. Lelaki soleh, untuk perempuan solehah kan? Our hubby, kita kena hormat dia walaupun dia serba kekurangan. Hargai dia, walau dia pernah melukai kita. Jadilah pemaaf dan beri peluang untuk dia berubah.

Tapi kalo dah jenis yang x ingat dosa pahala dan tanggungjawab tu.... doalah pada Allah semoga Allah tolong berikan hidayah... Amin

Resting? Not really...

I was suppose to get some rest this weekend. Meaning, have enough sleep at least. But last night, I slept at 2.30 am... Itu pun lepas my hubby suruh tido. Otherwise, I would stay up watching my favourite movie 'The Sound of Music'. Last night sempat sampai they all sang out that yodel song jer...

Anyway, I suppose tonight I need to sleep on early. Tomorrow is monday...(sigh...) The beginning of another hectic week. Good Luck everyone!

Bowling and body aches.

The last time I played bowling was about 2 years ago (I think...). It's been so long, I was not confident to play it at first. My Division had organised an engagement session with our GM, of which an inter department game was organised to strenghten our teamwork. Our department had sent 2 team. My team (we named it 'Bakor Je...Kita Bakor Je...) and the other team that we named Kak Limah Main Bowling. Hehehe.... It was a funny name and my staff had suggeted it. I like it so much so I just went along with them.

The event started at 3.15 pm with speech from the GM (honest to be told I can't remember what he said...ahaks!). Then we had a refreshment before we started to bowl. My team members were worried about me...Maklum la...lama dah tak main. I told them I'm not a good bowler (which is true). To my surprise, I played so well in the first game (I got 140 point. The highest so far in my life. hehehhe). Few strikes and spares. I even impressed my team. Hehehehe.... Tapi 1st game je la. Our team scored 550 point during the first game - the highest of all. Other team member pun impressed kot dengan kitorang.

Second game, my momentum started to drop. Just managed to get 7-9 jatuhan pin everytime I bowled.3rd game lagi teruk, except for the final 3 frame where I got my momentum back. But, since my teammate semua bagus2, we managed to lead the game until the end. Our teams was declared winners (my team 1st place & the other team 2nd place). Seronoknya!

However, I have to go back home a little bit early. My MIL nak balik umah dia (dah rindu kat umah dia la tu...2 minggu dah dok kat umah I.) So, after finishing the 3rd game, I excused myself and went back home. Traffic nya...adeh... macam biasa la KL....

Today, I'm at my MIL house. My body aches especially my legs and right hand. Just want to have a good rested weekend. Hope the same goes to all of you... Have a wonderful weekend!

If you think your life is hard....

I was watching 'Bersamamu' @ TV3. Usually I won't watch this 'sad story' kind of TV program...not because I don't care... It is because I'll feel so sad that I would be crying watching it (Yes....I'm that sensitive).

But tonight, since my MIL is the Queen of the house, she got to watch whatever TV program she likes. And I'm as a dutiful daughter in law (hehhehe) will watch whatever TV Program she choose.

But I managed to hold back my tears (malu la kat my MIL!). Sedih la... I can't bear watching other people's suffering. Kesian sangat kat adik tu... being 16, but he can only lie on his back and his mother would attend to him. He suffers with brain cancer, which already spread to his spine. Memang sedih sangat.

This makes me think, how many of us being thankful to Allah? We often complain that we have a hard life. We often asked why we have such problem? Why Allah did not accept our Doa? Why does this problem happen to me? But we always forgot that there is other people who has suffered more than us.

Shouldn't we be thankful that Allah gives us such problem? Don't we know that Allah would never test us, unless the test is for forgiveness of our sins or to increase our 'darjat'. Yes dear reader, when we got tested by Allah, it is a sign that He still Loves us, He does not want us to forget Him, hence the test was given so that we can come back to Him for forgiveness.

So next time when you feel that your life is sucks, stop for a moment and Istighfar lah... Terima lah dugaan Allah dengan hati yang tenag, dan bersyukurlah...sebab dugaan yang kita alami tidak sehebat dugaan orang lain.

Life...

I'm a bit 'emo' right now. I'm sorry if this entry contains words that is offending to some of you...

I can't stand reading/hearing about wife who is 'unjustly' treated. I'm amazed though by the strength of the wife. Orang perempuan memang kuat. Ustazah kat sekolah dulu, pernah tanya soalan kat kami...kenapa orang perempuan yang bersalin? Bukan org lelaki yang melahirkan anak? Ustazah kata, sebab orang perempuan ni kuat. Lebih tahan sakit berbanding lelaki. Sebab tu jugak, org lelaki yang banyak sakit jantung....eh, kluar topik la...

Back to the story about the unjustly treated wife ni. For all of us yang x mengalaminya ni, memang senang nak kata "tinggalkan je lelaki macam tu..." or "bawak je masalah ni ke mahkamah" or "mintak la family campur tangan". If I was not married, I would probably say the same. But when I'm married, I understand how does it feel to love and be loved. I understand how does the marriage is something that is more than you can imagine, how you love your other half that you are willing to hold on to it as long as you can. It is not fair for us who is the outsiders to give comment like this... Berat mata memandang, berat lagi bahu yang memikul...

For those ladies, I pray to Allah to continuously Gives you strength, and I pray that Allah would help your other half realised, what a 'dumba** he was for treating you like that (sorry...tengah emo ni). Just remember, Allah will not test you on what He think you could not bear... Semoga anda semua dilimpahi pahala atas kesabaran yang tinggi itu! Amin...

p/s: Alhamdullillah... Thank You Allah kerana jodohkan aku ngan my dear hubby... He is all I need :)
