Selepas 1 Tahun di Bhg. Besi

20 September 2011, genaplah setahun saya berkhidmat di Bhg Besi. Apa yang saya rasa? Hmmm...macam-macam..

Tidak dapat saya nafikan, hati saya sangat berdebar-debar ketika memulakan langkah saya ke Bahagian Baru ni. Ye la, dengan pengalaman yang 'zero', dengan ilmu yang minima, saya telah di arahkan untuk menjadi DD di Bahagian itu. Tuhan saja yang tahu betapa takutnya saya.

But I was thankful that I have similar experienced when I was transferred to Corporate Division earlier. Yeah, I know the most important thing is to be positive (attitude?). I rely/learn a lot from my officers. I learned by mistakes. And I must thank god for giving me time to learn with Y. Bhg. Dato' W before he retired. Yeah, the support and understanding helped me to go through the hard time.

I was given 6 months to learn the industry and also the policy with Dato' W, I started to gather knowledge/experience and know the industry better. I am also very fortunate because hubby is also working in the same industry. Hmm, that gives us another topic to discuss when we are together.

How do I feel now? Haaa, I must admit that I am still learning. With the current boss/chairman replacing Dato' W, and the new system used, it has become harder to convince the committee with our proposal. It is like preparing for a war every week and I am one of the platoon leader. huwaaaaaa, it is not easy, really.

There were times when I felt so down and demotivated. But after sometimes, I just got tired and decided to become ...just a little stronger and also to adapt the 'whatever' attitude. I still get myself prepared though, but I know, despite whatever my opinion is about the case, if the committee disagree, there's nothing that I can do.

Hari ini hari Ahad, esok kerja balik??? haaa...saya anggaplah semua yang datang sebagai cabaran yang interesting, bukan masalah..easier said than done? I am trying and yeah, I realised when I set the 'positive' attitude, things do seem to be less tough..

still on raya mood

Today is Sunday, the last day of the long break. A nice long break indeed.

I started the day with my 2 kilometres walk/run. I am determine to do my walk consistently nowadays mainly to increase my metabolic rate and also to take care of my heart. The walk also give me some piece of mine, at least I know what I consumed, being burned out instead of accumulating in my body and stays as fat/cellulite...hiks, the present one is already abundance, therefore I do not need new one.

Hari ini ada 3 jemputan open house and semuanya away from Shah Alam, kena bincang dengan suami yang mana satu nak pergi ni.

I did bring ten files/documents to clear up during the weekend and as per now, I have not touched any...ha ha.

Okaylah, enjoy your break everyone, esok kita kerja kuat balik ye..

The excitement for tomorrow! Cuti Beb

Hmmm...another long meeting ended just now. I am suppose to go back to work, but since I skipped my lunch break, so I guess, what the heck, let me update my blog..I need to talk to myself.

I am so sleepy. I just found out that my boss is not around and that would mean, I AM THE BOSS... HOYEEE.

Sebenarnya hari ini sudah mood gembira kerana esok cuti akan bermula. Walau bagaimanapun, seperti biasa, sebelum kita boleh bergembira, kita perlu suffer sedikit. Semua fail di atas meja perlu di selesaikan. Tak pe, lepas ni saya akan buat dengan tekunnya, insya allah.

Esok, cuti. Esok juga ada rumah terbuka di Seksyen 9 Shah Alam...bestnyaaa

Hari Sabtu, ada dua rumah terbuka, tengahari, rumah kawan Shuk di Kg Jawa rasanya, petang pulak, di Bangi.

Hari Ahad pulak..di Rumah Orang Kaya Jeram...ha ha...

Itu juga membawa petanda yang dapur saya akan tidak berasap selama 3 hari? hmmm

Sebenarnya hari ini saya berpuasa, tapi banyak dapat dosa mengumpat waktu meeting tadi, betul la.

Okay lah kerja rajin-rajin semua so that tomorrow you can treat yourself since you really deserve it. Have a nice long weekend!

to puasa or not to puasa?

Baru habis puasa yang ke 2 hari ni.

Esok ada jemputan raya, lusa pun ada. Insya allah, Khamis puasa lagi.

Mana lebih penting, memenuhi jemputan majlis hari raya atau ganti puasa/puasa enam?

Hmmm, itulah masalah orang yang suka makan....insaf lah wahai cikbib

Down The Memory Lane

I really am not sure how to start. But I just want to share this story about those who has got impact in your life when you were younger (therefore this only apply for old people, the young may not understand).
The old woman in the photo above is Wan Saidah (the mandailings refer to their grandmother as Wan). She will be 90 years on 11 November this year. She used to stay in the big green house next to my house at Chemor. 

Wan Saidah is still healthy physically but she has some problem with her memory. Gone were the days where she would make a big fuss whenever we visited her. She was the best host ever. Ever since I was small, going to Wan Saidah's house will be something which I looked forward to. On normal days, they would served us/me hot milo and biscuits (roti marie ke, roti mayat ke), and somehow everything tasted so nice. Come raya day, Wan Saidah's house will be the first house we visited. Hmmm....kuih raya dia semuanya sedap, and what I like best is their kuah kacang and rendang tok yang superb.

My mom has always refered to her as an example. The way she layan her husband, kemas rumah dll...

She has started to loose her memory more than 20 years ago. Her daughter only found out recently that there's a blood clot in one of the nerve that flows to the brain (I am not sure whether I have put this correctly or not). The clot has refrain some function of the brain..and by now, Wan Saidah cannot even remember her own name.

Watching her this afternoon made me shed some tears. Sedihnya tengok dia so lost but still kept on smiling. She sat at the exact same location at the time we arrived until the time we went back. I think she likes it when people touch her hands, because when I did touched her hands, she was clinging to it.

At least Wan Saidah is cared for by her loved ones during her old days. Well, we will all be getting old one day and we cannot tell how are we going to look like/behave then, ha ha. Let's pray for the best for all of us now and the future and I thank Allah for the opportunity to visit Wan Saidah, insya allah, panjang umur, kita jumpa lagi.

Mood malas lagi

Hari ini mood masih mood malas. Saya spend almost 4 hours to clear 8 papers, very unproductive.

My colleague Sham was directed to attend this 'lab' on the economic corridor for almost three months and I am suppose to cover for him? huh? That will be a great challenge for me. I hope I do not have to post too many of my 'stress' story after this, please.

An old and dear boss came to visit me this afternoon. He spent more than two hours in my room, chatting. Huh, officers dropped by to greet him and chat. How we miss working with him.

Malamnya, ada open house, bestnya. Esok, anak saudara saya akan sampai dari Jepun, harap dia tidak terkejut dengan keadaan rumah saya yang cantik berkilat nih, ha ha.

I will post some stories on my hari raya celebration later I am just too lazy.

Okay, chow chin chow

Cerita selepas raya

I am working today, but the mood is still hari raya malas, ha ha.

Despite that, I have cleared a number of things, managed to have a short discussion with boss and answered 1001 phone calls with patience.

Hey, I am fasting today, insya allah, and if my iman is thicker than kulit bawang this year, I will again fast tomorrow.

How's your hari raya? Mine was a very meriah/happy one.

I went back on Saturday afternoon (27 August 2011) and the moment I arrived, I started to sinsing my lengan and work. Masak la, cuci pinggan la, mop rumah yang besar gedabak tu la, sidai kain la, buang sampah la, iron baju la...dan yang ajaibnya, saya ok and saya happy, alhamdulillah.

Saya tak la baik sangat dengan emak saya, dan seperti biasa, dia akan mengkritik cara saya bekerja. Kali ni, cara saya memotong cili kering..oushhh...benda kecil, tidak perlu diperbesarkan. Mothers kan.

Tapi, sebelum balik, dan waktu raya saya sudah minta maaf dah..ha ha

Duit pun banyak habis, tapi saya bersyukur sebab ada rezeki untuk dibelanjakan, kalau tak de, lagi lah teruk kan.

Rasanya ramai yang telah tengok gambar di facebook saya...begitu lah ramainya kerabat di rumah saya, itupun belum semua ada.

Hmmm...saya belum lagi over the long break lah, masih terawang..semoga hari-hari kita akan bertambah baik insya allah. Let's pray for the best.
