Travelling day.

Last Thursday my friends and I took a night flight out to Phuket (HKT). It was delayed, almost 2 hours and we were only given a bottle of mineral water, hmmm. When we reached the chalet, nobody’s at the reception. Luckily it was connected to a diner, which was ran by a bunch of ladies that were so helpful they advised me to ring the bell. But to no avail. Then, after ringing the bell quite few times, I saw the business card of the chalet and decided to give a call to a number on that. Turned out it was the phone in front of me, at the reception counter, which of course wasn’t a help. Then there’s another number, a mobile phone number and I decided to give it a try.

We were lucky someone’s picking up the phone, and here’s our phone conversation.

She : What time is now?
Me : It’s almost 1 o’clock
She : Check in at 2 pm.
Me : No, I booked for today, 17th not 18th….
She : Ohhh
Me : My flight’s delayed…
She : Oh, nobody there?
Me : No….
She : You go knock number 101… the staff is there. Maybe she sleeps.

I went to knock on 101 but again no one answered and then when I went to call her again, I saw 101’s key in the drop key box. I decided to open the door. There was no one inside the room and I assumed that it was for us. Heh. We were damn tired (spent) at that time, spent almost 7 hours travelling – started from ERL to klia2 to HKT to Kamala Beach.

When I was about to call her back, she called the reception and I picked it up, she sort of guessed that I would be there by the time she called. I informed her there was no one in the room but the key was in drop key box. She asked me if the room was clean, which it was and she told me that we can use the room. Turned out that it was a standby room for the clerk on the shift.

I informed the diner ladies that we were told to use the room and they bid us good night and good rest. We didn’t do much except went to 7E to get bottled waters and some food for breakfast, brushed our teeth and just went to sleep. There were only two pillows but there were 3 of us so I just slept on my backpack.

We woke completely around 8 am. I checked the bathroom and realized there were no towels, I thought I continued to sleep on and off until 10 am. My friends went out to see the beach which was just rightly in front of our room. Which was so nice. That was one of the factors that I went to sleep so much, because of the wind and the sound of the waves.

At 1030 I went to ask for towels and the lady at the reception recognized me easily. She apologized about the earlier incident and I was sorry too to have to call her so late at night. She gave us our real room, and provided us enough towels and pillows etc. She was too kind and warm, we did feel like we were at someone’s home instead of some chalet haha.

So, there; a bit of our adventure in Phuket.

Side responsibility at the office

How do I begin?

  • I was appointed as the Chairman of Wakil Pekerja (something like union) at my office. Based on popularity, I think? Staff voted online, even I nominated and voted for someone else, little did I know, there were people who nominated me, and voted for me. Still, I didn’t know if this is a blessing or a curse. People might vote out of love or hate, right?
  • We planned to organize an open day, sort of so my team (consist of 11 other staff) had our discussions, thought of some fun activities and even budget the program out. We had our meetings with the Secretariat as well as the Big Boss.
  • We had laid out some contests, nostalgia sort of offerings, it was supposed to be held on 22nd Aug 2017 (next week) but hmmmm, I guess we had to postpone it due to some unforeseen (of course) issues.
  • We didn’t get enough support from the management, which was kind of sad. Yes, it was one of the challenges in organizing side activities. I said “side” because it’s just a fulfilment activity for the staff, not some core jobs that is compulsory. It’s good to have but it’s also good not to have it. Something like that.
  • But this issue sort of demotivating my team and I. We had the same event last year and the colleagues love it. They got the chance to be active. We had sing contest, explorace (inside office building) as well as lucky draw. Last year, my team and I went around the office looking for financial support, I even mengadap YBTM to ask for some donations. Yes, we didn’t use the Ministry’s budget but we depended on the contributions from the bosses.
  • We will try to work things out with the help of boss yang supportive. Wish us luck, I still don’t know why I nak juga buat this.
  • This appointment will end this year, next year the staff will have to vote for a new committee. 🙂

Lagu Anuar Zain

  • Tengah dengar lagu Anuar Zain, sejak jadi Joox VIP ni (sampai Oktober je kot) best dapat dengar lagu tanpa gangguan.
  • Lagu Anuar Zain dalam playlist I semuanya jiwang-jiwang jer. I wonder ada ke lelaki yang jiwang macam ni, lirik semua best jer. Dan comel. Cute… Kadang-kadang tergelak dengar lirik tu. Tapi lagu dia memang best dan teliti rasanya. Dari sebutan sampailah ke muzik…. 5 per 5 bintang.
  • Kadang-kadang kalau lagu yang sedih tu, rasa sedih sekali, tanpa disedari meleleh air mata hahaha. Padahal tak dengar sangat pun lirik apa dia cerita dalam lagu tu tapi entahlah.
  • Pastu kalau dengar lagu yang ada elemen positif, cinta baru nak berbunga-bunga tu rasa comel sangat, kelakar pun ada lirik dia. Well, I memang minat dia since dulu-dulu lagi kot.

🙂

Wish

I won’t see anyone else. Would you? Are you seeing someone else?
No. You know I don’t have time for that.
Okay. You can’t go out with anyone else.
You’re acting like a child.
I love you.
I love you.

Bebel day

  • One of the officers guna projector tapi dia simpan kat pejabat dia, and he left for a meeting outside of the office this morning, I texted him personally because we needed the projector for our morning meeting but he didn’t reply or say anything, we needed to borrow from other division. He didn’t even apologize for this when he returned to the office just before lunch;
  • I was out for lunch, walking to the eatery when a group of 3 sisters sort of blocking our way, chit chatting… I was like damn, this is a walkaway, if you wanted to keep talking, find a place to sit and talk all you want! I just rushed by them and maybe… I bumped into one 44of them;
  • I was supposed to attend a meeting outside that I know of even before the invitation reached my boss, because the secretariat contacted me directly, knowing how my boss operates, I replied to the secretariat that better left boss to decide and I didn’t even know (didn’t even think) he would let me attend it…. true enough boss did instruct someone else to attend until the person declined then the boss asked me instead to attend the meeting… well the question was, boss was well aware I was the one who manage the thing for years, I wasn’t sure why he wouldn’t let me do it… why would he ask someone else who do nothing related to this? I started to think that boss just doesn’t want me to leave the office… ;
  • Now I am working from the discussion room, I have my officer with me in front of me to ensure she’s on right track hahaha! I’ve found out we work faster this way…

Alright, that would be all! 🙂

Rantai Sejuk

Pagi tadi pergi melawat FAMA untuk persediaan mesyuarat pada September, jadi ini adalah hasil perbincangan yang tidak formal, dan tidak boleh digunakan sebagai rujukan okay. Nama tajuk dialihbahasa untuk mengelakkan carian enjin. Boleh tak?

  • Or, dalam bahasa mudah adalah pergerakan barang-barang menggunakan lori/kenderaan yang memerlukan penetapan suhu tertentu;
  • Juga turut melibatkan storage barang-barang mudah rosak (perishable) seperti sayur, buah, ayam, daging (agricultural products) juga kadang-kadang bunga;
  • untuk kegunaan domestik di Malaysia, FAMA dan lain-lain agensi di bawah MOA adalah berkaitan (LKIM, Veterinar etc);
  • Cadangan supaya kenderaan bersuhu ni digunakan di Malaysia adalah tidak berbaloi memandangkan Malaysia terutamanya Semenanjung adalah sebuah negara yang mempunyai infrastruktur jalan yang baik yang memungkinkan barang-barang boleh dihantar dalam tempoh yang sempurna dan hasil tani adalah kekal segar dan diterima;
  • Kenderaan bersuhu memerlukan penjagaan berkos tinggi, dan kurang kemudahan penyeliaan di Malaysia;
  • FAMA mempunyai banyak faciliti ni di beberapa buah negeri di Malaysia yang mana cukup untuk cater keperluan makanan (hasil tani) di Malaysia, dan barang-barang adalah diedarkan mengikut zon, dan masih bertahan sehingga sampai ke pengguna;
  • Mendapati bahawa kos barang rosak adalah kecil berbanding dengan keperluan untuk menyelenggara kenderaan bersuhu tertentu;
  • Masih kurang kemahiran teknikal bagi memastikan prosedur ni digunapakai;
  • Masih ada syarikat lain yang menyediakan facilities ni terutamanya rangkaian pasar segar seperti Jaya Grocer, Ben’s etc (hiring the private provider) – mungkin boleh melawat untuk kajian seterusnya;
  • Tiada prosedur standard yang diregulasi kan, kebanyakan penyedia perkhidmatan menggunakan contoh amalan terbaik dari negara-negara maju – which is good;
  • Need to study more on this. 🙂

 

2017 Birthday shopping spree!

Well hi! July gave me plenty of reasons to go shopping! (and some unnecessary justifications too) (so oxymoron)!

Here’s what I’ve purchased on the name of birthday presents (from myself to myself) who cares, my money! (Alhamdulillah! InsyaAllah!)

  • Kors (hmmm) with some leftover allowance from the ASEAN meeting;
  • The Body Shop (25 or 20% percent birthday discount);
  • Elianto (30% birthday discount);
  • The Face Shop (30% birthday discount);
  • Padini (20% birthday discount); and
  • F.O.S (20% birthday discount)

Okay that’s all so far! It was also good to get to share the discounts with some friends! 🙂 Here’s to another blessed year ahead, cheers!

InsyaAllah!

Alhamdulillah ya Allah for all the things that made me, me. 🙂
