Research/Consultation

In my close to 16 years of services in government administrative ecosystem, I’ve participated in some consultations/negotiations/meetings/researches as well as presentation or seminars. I can tell it if you are not really prepare or do you study enough to participate in some specific topics.

Usually I would be feeling disappointed and frustrated when some expensively paid consultant can’t get what I meant… or didn’t really know the issues yet they are holding to something that they have decided earlier… and they would fight me because I wouldn’t agree/listen to them. It’s my portfolio, it’s where I’m coming from but it seems like you don’t want to acknowledge my input. It’s funny? I know that you’re the researcher… yes you’ve done your research, but like, I’m here, I’m doing it now, so can you take note and then, improve your findings?

Penat tau?

When we have meeting on Tuesday, I would appreciate the reports would be out on at least Thursday/Friday, better yet on Wednesday but this one… they posted the template for feedback after almost two weeks of our discussion. Hmmm.

I just hope you do better, I would appreciate if…

  • You study the background/core business of the agency/company that you are going to meet
  • You come back with the report as fast as you can after the discussions/if there’s any updates needed?
  • You are able to receive any inputs and study your findings later…
  • You believe in your respondent? and try to be understanding even if you don’t really understand? You can understand later?

Is it too much?

Vaccinated.

Alhamdulillah I got vaccinated for the first dose of AZ at 5pm yesterday. Since husband’s turn is today, (InsyaAllah) we decided to stay at the nearby hotel to minimize travelling back and forth from home to the vaccination centre.

Before making reservation for the hotel stay, I made calls and checking to ensure that we are allowed to travel together to the city as well as could we stay for the night.

The hotel is allowed to receive guests as long as the guests adhere to all the SOP and Covid-19 related matters. Once we arrived we need to share the screenshot of our vaccination appointment with the hotel as a proof for the stay.

Anyway, hopefully everyone will get their vaccination soon.

Oh, the second dose of AZ will be received within 9 weeks now instead of 12 weeks before.

Take care everyone!

P.s; it’s sad to see the road is that empty during weekend morning. Hope we’ll get better soon. InsyaAllah.

I think I looked bigger than usual

When I looked at my photos from last year, specifically from September to December 2020 and maybe early this year. I looked bigger and my aunt once told me that I’ve neglected my physical appearance at that time, when we met at a family event last Jan.

The truth was, I was on medication. I guess in my whole life of 38 years, this is the closest of I’ve became sick. I was diagnosed with psoriasis. I went to five clinics before I was diagnosed and referred to the skin specialist. When I first saw the doctor, I was requested to do a survey to check on my mental perception towards my conditions (apart from the physical check up). How this illness affects me etc.

I’ve been supplied with lots of medicines, all sorts of lotion, cream, shampoo, liquid and also tablet. I was informed that they contained steroid. So maybe, it affected everything.

That is all I wanted to share.

I am better now. Only on 1/4 medication and my appointment now was reduced to twice a year (before it was once in 2 months).

Take care everyone.
