PC spoiled..

ai shit.. my pc spoiled.. it would boot up.. i think it is due to POST failure..which means the bios is dead..

last few days.. it was already showing sign of aging.. where the system date suddenly behaved in a strange manner..

i tried to boot up PC last two days.. and it was like stop there.. where you wont hear that booting sound "tink.."

also another symptom is that if you leave it long enough (with the power one) .. it might boot back.

one of my friend told me it could be due to "bloated" capacitor..where there is this batch of motherboard came from Taiwan which the capacitors suck..

anyway, even if the bios is spoiled, which is better than "bloated" capacitor.. i might still need to change the whole motherboard.. damn... i need to spend extra money again...

any of you got the same problem... don't be hesitate to consult me.. coz this is the second time i experience such problems.. I think it is becoz I visited to much naughty site..keke..

no revenue

I realized that these days.. there is plenty of jobs around but company just couldn't make up enough revenue to pay the staff..

In my company for instance, we always needed people..but just either the cost is too high or too risky for us to bring in more people to help out with the work.

many people would ask "do you have jobs in your company... ?" I would go " yes, plenty.. but just couldn't pay you dear.." I mean think of a time when someone actually came up to your company and work for free..if everybody were just to do that.. think abt it.. those drug addicts or criminals would offer to work volunteer for companies which having high activities but low revenue.. they would have made the difference. They would make a difference person out of themselves and the bosses would thank them more than the employed staff becoz it is a free service.

We need courage ..not anger

The arrival of a dark time also marks the beginning of new era. Whenever something bad happened to me, such as when I am dissappointed with something.. something new would also happen because you would swear to do something different isn't ?

You sweared that you would do this and tat ?? in order to remember that what have caused you to feel upset doesn't repeat itself. Just like when it is nite time and you prepare youself to sleep... and then you wake up and it is a brand new day.If you didn't sleep, it is not brand new day, just only morning.

Yesterday, I have an argument with my father.. and it made me feel so sad that I just want to give up on him.. give up trying to make him feel happier. I really feel that 26 years is enough. I remember when I was younger, you would always wanted to make your parents feel proud abt you.. I mean you try to get good score and etc.. after you started working, you tried to buy them things and etc.. to remind them that the investment is worth it. and so I have been doing this sort of "pay-back" thingy for 26 years.. and I felt that it would do.

I started to understand what kind of courage people have in order for them to leave home and pursue other interest in other environment. Just imagine for someone to land on a place totally new and stranger to him or her and start from zero. It is just exactly the opposite kind of feeling as when you think otherwise.

I needed courage and not anger.

i want to be enterpreneur !!

i was a bit lost ... because year end is coming and am doing evaluation for myself.. but it is really stupid in a sense that I felt I been busy for the whole year in hope for one day which I could suddenly become so rich man or something.. So I got a little scared.. a bit shaken.. (u know as you get older, feelings like this would follow..)

thinking back, I joined this company for one simple reason.. to be enterpreneur. after 11 months, have I achieved my target.. not really.. the only thing that I got is that I am enriched with more skills, knowledge and experiences. So now I got what it takes to be an enterpreneur and planning as well, but just lacking action becoz I am seriously laking time.

ok ok.. I feel better now.. Just do It !

moving foward

some people say I am "Phlegmatic" type... i guess so.. i like pondering abt futures and values of things..During these holiday season (Hari Raya..) i have some time and started thinking a little abt what has happened so far.. and it is scary to think that so little things had been achieved with so many days has gone.

the scariest thing in this society is really... i figure.. watching people moving yet you are not going anywhere. u r stuck with the same job, same salary, same company ...

i think the very important thing in life is to move foward.. achieving targets and dreams.. that is what i think what matters the most.

one of the reason i like blogging is to document myself and then I would sort of close-case for old stuff, that never to look back what had happened. if I have to be sorry then I am sorry abt it. admit it and move on.

it also made me realize that the most important job of a CEO is to make sure a company move foward. The rest of it..like profit drops, people quiting, products having problems.. are just secondary.. CEO must have the vision to move the company ahead, by leveraging on current situations and keeping hope floats for future excitement. In short, a CEO must at least have a dream, but he or she cannot tell people to stop all works and start focusing on that dream (this would be robbery).. so people have to keep doing their things.. keep acting while the movie director secretly put on a new stage. At the end of the day, annual meeting, if that objective is not achieved, then CEO got nothing to say, then resign.

so our resume is a good documentation of summary of our career. and as long as it shows sign of moving foward, it is good resume.

time flies

without realizing it.. I have been working for current company for almost one year... and I felt like still really new to it...

and I could feel the flesh of those people whom i worked for during previous job...

so, what is my job ?? I joined this company doing marketing.. I was resigned and they countered offered me to be General Manager.. coz my general manager was going on long extended leave.. I thought abt it and decided to finish the war which i started.. I took the offer and decided on assistant general manager.. how much is my pay ?? u guess.

i know how to run the whole business well.. the fact is it is not really a complicated one.. most of the time I am doing fire-fighting.. we are in air-time trading business.

I am starting a project called "Domite" .. I wouldn't tell u what it is until something is out..
isn't it a nice name ?? now it is copyrighted to me, ok ?

I see there is hope - volunteer

John Kerry lost.. it never really matter to me coz I am living in Malaysia. Neither I care much abt politics in my own country.

But American election has such wonderful drama and the final moments are always the most memorable.

During John Kerry's losing speech to his supporter, the one that attracted my attention most is the following extract...

"And to all the volunteers, all across this country who gave so much of themselves. You know, thanks to William Field, a six-year-old who collected $680, a quarter and a dollar at a time selling bracelets during the summer to help change America. Thanks to Michael Benson from Florida who I spied in a rope line holding a container of money, and turned out he raided his piggy bank and wanted to contribute. And thanks to Alana Wexler who is 11 years old and started kids for Kerry all across our country. I think of the brigades of students and people, young and old, who took time to travel, time off from work, their own vacation time to work in states far and wide. They braved the hot days of summer and the cold days of the fall and the winter to knock on doors because they were determined to open the doors of opportunity to all Americans. They worked their hearts out, and I wish… you don't know how much they, could have brought this race home for you for them, and I say to them now, don't lose faith."

such a wonderful spirit of volunteerism, ocean of generousity and peace of mind eventually. This is what it takes to make the world a better place.

7s don't after meal ...

This information has been circulated in the net for years... it is pretty much long lived.. right now I am just gonna give it a hall of fame..

  1. Don't smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigaretteafter meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer ishigher).
  2. Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after mealswill cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr aftermeal or 1hr before meal.
  3. Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid.This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to behardened thus difficult to digest.
  4. Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easilycause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.
  5. Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to thehands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach willtherefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.
  6. Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundredsteps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walkingwill cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition fromthe food we intake. *
  7. Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able todigest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.
  8. Finally, Goh Fen Ning(Monash univesity tutor.. very rich) would say ... Don't believe everything you hear.
