Moving On...

...adios Macam Bagus

Welcome Dream a lil' Dream...

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Come to Momma...

Suddenly I feel beautiful...wonder why...haha...Lookin' at these wonderful stuffs is like a therapeutic session. like snow in Sahara. like a pardon to death sentence convict. it's a drug no woman can resist! ye la..kalo ade duit mmg xle resist...kalo xde duit melopong je la...haha

M a Gucci aficionado... Been secretly (until now dat is) harbourin' a wish to get my hands on Flora. But my sis beats me to dat! Urrghh... but me thinks Rush appeals to my senses more... it's has a touch oriental, sharp, woody and floral, whereas Flora is sensual, light, soft, feminine, flowery fragrance. Since my Rush is approching it's 5th-year anniversary on my shelf, better get Flora instead (cilok je la). Price tag?? $139

oh yess...nice eh? Being me, of coz i want a bag to hold lots of documents and personal belongings and do not want a big bag that will make me look weirdo or salesgirl...huhu

Coach Braided Leather Extra Large Zoe bag - an extra large bag with style and sophistication...price tag?? $1000

Next, Louis Vuitton Monogram Embossed Suede Paris Soupe Whisper GM... though this is 08 Fall Collection, I'd give my eye n teeth for this! haih... "Crafted in graphic Louis Vuitton Paris embossed leather, with distinctive details such as silvery flat link chain and a playful pompom, this bag is comfortable to carry by hand or on the shoulder" and so they say.... Price tag? $4,040

Ok. Now for the impossible dream.... Have you seen “most expensive handbag in the world” ? No?Yes? whatever... Now i'll give you the Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin. That LV is a junk at most half the price of it. The Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin is what Maybach is to cars, Schloss Neuschwanstein is to castles, Monaco is to luxurious nightlife. Ultra luxe croc on a Hermes Birkin is enough to make u beg at a strange SA’s feet, but paired with 14 carats of pave diamonds on the signature Birkin lock and clasp would send me into a continuous groveling state. That sight would not be pretty let me assure u. Recently Doyle New York auctioned off a Hermes Diamond Croc Birkin which sold for $64,800. That price is reasonable, compared to a ‘$140,000 one-of-a-kind pink crocodile Birkin bag with diamond hardware that was sold in one day' when the Hermes Palm Beach Store opened in February 2007. While a Croc Birkin is one my eternal dream list, the diamond encrusted croc Birkin seems a bit farfetched for moi, but is still a masterpiece and the pinnacle of all handbags. To whoever keeps pushing that LV bag as the most expensive in the world (macik CT ek??), feast ur eyes on a bag that makes the LV tag of $45k look like chump change next to $140k. 1 of the proud owner? Posh 'skeletor' Becks, if i got it rite... hmm...the influence of E! hahha...
So... xberbaloi? yeah sure. not worth it. but u wud b nice..heck, it wud b something out of this world to have it. but to buy it, no way in hell i'll succumb to this earthy seductive craving. total waste of money tell ya' the end..xleh masuk kubur jugak.


Can You Solve Einstein's Riddle?

Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said 98% of the world could not solve it (ek? tu zaman die la..skang dunia dah mberubah, zaman dah idok??). It's not hard, you just need to pay attention and be patient.

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

The question is: Who owns the fish?


* The Brit lives in the red house.
* The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
* The Dane drinks tea.
* The green house is on the immediate left of the white house
* The green homeowner drinks coffee.
* The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
* The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
* The man living in the center house drinks milk.
* The Norwegian lives in the first house.
* The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats.
* The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
* The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
* The German smokes prince.
* The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
* The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water.


Changing Mindset

Thought this would be interesting enough to share ...


If your company, Comb manufacturers assigned you to sell the comb to the monks in the temples? Can you do it?

What is your answer?

a) No Way , Impossible!
b) Crazy!
c) I will give it a try in order to follow my boss'instruction.
d) Well, I will try.
e) Ya, I think I can sell ??? (5pcs? 10pcs? 50pcs? or name it)

Pick an answer above and read below to find out if you are/you are going to be a successful person or not at all.


There was one company "manufacturing combs" which intends to expand its business and so the management wanted to employ a new Sales Manager.

The company ADVERTISED the vacancy in the newspaper . They are so many peoples turned up for the interview everyday....accumulated to almost a hundred peoples in just few days.

The Company now having the problem to choose the right candidate for this position . So, The Company interviewer had set A Difficult Task to whom who want to come for final interview.

The Task Is To : Selling Comb To Monks In Temples

Only 3 Applicants willing to stay on for this Final Interview challenge. (Mr A , Mr B , Mr C)

The Chief Interviewer instructed: "Now I want three of you here to sell these wooden combs to the monks in the temples. You only have 10 days to do it and report to me after that."

After 10 days, they reported.

The Chief Interviewer asked Mr A:"How many have you sold?"

Mr A answered:"Only One."

The Chief Interviewer asked: "How did you manage to sell?

Mr A answered: "The monks in the temples scolded me when I show them the comb . But on my way back to downhill I met a young monk who bought it to scratch his head due to dandruff.

The Chief Interviewer then asked Mr B: "How many did you sell?

Mr B replied: "10 pieces. I went to a shrine and noticed many devotees's hair was in bad shape due to strong wind outside the shrine. The monk in there listened to my advice and bought 10 combs for their devotees in showing respect to the Buddha statue."

Then, The Chief Interviewer asked Mr C:"How about you?"

Mr C replied: "1,000 units."

The Chief Interviewer and the other 2 interviews were astounded.

The Chief Interviewer asked: "How you did that?"

Mr C replied: "I went to a famous temple. After observing for few days I discovered that there were many tourists. I then told the Chief Abbot there. "Sifu, those who come here are much devoted. If you could give them a gift, it will be more elating to them. I told him that I have a bulk of combs here and ask him to raft his handwriting on the combs as a present to those visit here. He was very delighted and straight away ordered 1,000 pieces."


HARVARD UNIVERSITY had done a research that says :-

1) 85% of success is due to attitude and 15% is capability
2) Attitude is more important than intelligence , specials skills and luck ..

In another word , professional knowledge only constitutes for 15% of success of a person and 85% is due to self-cultivation, public relation and adaptability ability.

Still remember the story of Selling Shoes to African ?

When 2 Salesmen were sent to that continent, one of them reported: Can not do it. No one wears shoes there?

The second salesman said: "It is good to market . A lot of opportunity."

Success and Failure is dependent on how we face problems.

Remember, when the economic is good, there are peoples going bankrupt.

When business is bad , there are many new millionaires produced as well. So , apply now the 85% right working attitude fully.


I believe this basic principle of 85% right working attitude is also applicable to Plantation Management.

Many problems encountered by planters in their plantations can be overcome for they are not as difficult as "selling comb to monks in temples". Logically it's impossible for no monk will buy a comb because it is used for combing hairs. Monks in temples are simply not your customers!

Now with this story, we learn to "think out of the box" and even with 15% capability, we are confident to solve problems for nothing is impossible as long as we have the RIGHT WORKING ATTITUDE with COMMITMENT full of DISCIPLINE, DEDICATION and DETERMINATION. Every time when we watch MISSION IMPOSSIBLE movie, the ending is always POSSIBLE.


ala...mcm Bob the Builder la...

"Can we fix it? Yes we can!"

Dream a Lil' Dream of Me

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this...

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Yes, dream a little dream of me...

A Story To Live By

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying:

'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes..

Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift!

Today,before you say an unkind word

- Think of someone who can't speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food

- Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife

- Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today,before you complain about life

- Think of someone who died too early on this earth.

Before you complain about your children

- Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep

- Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive

- Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job

- Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another

- Remember that not one of us is without sin.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down

- Put a smile on your face and think:

You're alive and still around!


Got back to work yesterday. For 2 days before dat, I was chained down by the depression. Ha ha…depression la sangat. Dunno what got over me sampaikan aku hanya bertafakur di rumah. It was only for two days and I was like slowly losing my mind out of boredom. But I don’t wanna go out, jalan2 kt mall or park or whatever. It was like I reached the stagnant, motionless phase, unable to neither go forward nor unwind it all. Froze in time.

Maybe I’m trying to cocoon myself. Shieldin’ myself from the pain and the hurting which this world had dealt me with. Macam comel lak kalo aku leh cocoon-kan diri aku. Yes, 2 days of nothingness. 2 days of being at the point of nonexistence. 2 days of reflecting on my life and thinking…. thinking….. thinking…… 2 days of wallowing in self pity and gathering the strength to get back on my feet. 2 days of finding my inner strength and the courage to move on. And lotsa good it does me, aye, sirrr! Coz, I was rewarded with chocs n a weird looking red rose which at 1st glance I tot it was plastic. After a closer look and a attempt to sniff it ( dlm movie2…cium2 bunga.bajet cute la jap), it turned out to be made of feathers…so soft and sweet… bagus2. m lovin’ it!

While contemplating, somehow, my mind wandered to this piece of poetry, written on the cover album of Tommy Page. Bet most of you xkenal pon sape mamat ni kan. Well, 1 of the advantages ade older sisters is that you know the singer from eons before you were born hehe…. Well, I was like years ago, but I still remember the words… kinda sad yet inspiring, telling me not to give up just yet…

Something turns to nothing
And nothing makes you cry
There was something in that nothing
It’s gone and you wonder why
Life can be lived on one thing
For that one thing it could be something.
So wipe those tears of nothing
For tomorrow, there will be something
