Poor Bird

I was driving to other office this morning, stepping on the pedal picking up momentum. Out of a sudden, in split second, out from nowhere, a bird flew straight head to me & crash on my windscreen. It first knocked on the windscreen, bounced & there's a loud 'tum' on the roof. The impact must be great. I step on the break & saw the bird fell to the ground. I felt so bad. It all happened so fast & I could not stop on time.

On my way back to main office, along the opposite road, I was trying to see whether the poor little bird is still lying on the road. The bird is no where to be found. The bird must have flew off. Thank God it is OK.

Got my offer letter

Collected my offer letter this afternoon. Yup! Finally, peace of mind. Will be reporting to work 1st July. Last day with current company is on June 24th. My future boss ask me to more homework before reporting to work. Oh gosh ! Pressure !

At work, a colleague is organising a farewell lunch for me. She's asking where will I like to go for makan. I don't have any preference though but she asked to choose expensive one as boss will be paying. First choice is to have Japanese food, second is lunch buffet at Sunway Hotel. For me, I will wallap anything that is free.

Submitted another Touch n Go contest entry this evening, with help of Tina on the 3 words slogan. Wonder whether I can get the 1 Year free tol prize. If I don't win it, that because Tina's slogan is no good :P

Still busy preparing the handover at office. Few more documentation to complete.

Handover Preparation

Busy preparing the handover of job to a person who has been assigned by boss. That person must be cursing me for giving him additional work load & responsibilities. But time is too short to hire a new person & for me to train him up.

6.05 pm - received call to collect the offer letter tomorrow. A sigh of relieve.

Tendered my resignation this morning, even though I have yet to get the offer letter from the other side. I know, to be on the safe side, I should be getting the offer letter first, but I don't know why I'm so anxious to throw the letter today. My heart says, "yes, throw it throw it!". So I'm just following my heart.

My boss was rather calm & cool when I handed the letter the her. Guess she has expected this to happen. Just one word "OK", not more not less. I'm abit dissapointed though, because I expect a bigger reaction, after 10 years plus of working under the same roof. Oh well, that will be good also as I don't have to waste time explaining.

I was called into the discussion after about an hour. I was asked whether I can allow her some space for negotiation. However, I told her my decision is final & I'm moving forward. She accepted that & wish me all the best.

Rough road ahead

I felt happier after tendering. But right now, thinking of what awaits me ahead is making me a bit worry & tense. My future boss is giving me a chance to serve the new company, even though I have no hands on or experience in few of the their systems. I just feel that, I cannot let him down & I need to buck up by using all the time I have now to enrich my knowledge. He must have a good impression of me. He must acknowledge that, he has employed the right person for the job. I must not let him down.

Like Brand New Leather Shoe

The black Crocodile shoes which I bought together with my darling last year, already has its based worn out. A pair of new leather shoes cost around RM150-200. Now that's not cheap! Looking at my budget for this month, I think it's better to get it repaired instead.

Total repair cost - RM28. Took this guy 1.5 hours to complete the job. I'm satisfied with his quality of work. The end result is like brand new shoe.

Man at work below.

Changing Fluorescent Light

Man! It's hard to change a fluorescent light! I mean the full set of it, not just the bulb. The main power has to be cut off. Take down the faulty one, & replacing the new one is a tricking part. Screwing the case to the roof was hard. That took me the longest time & it's darn tiring. My arms almost kill me. Trying to figure which wires goes to which socket is another problem. I got it right based on instinct.

Finally! It's time to test the new set. Switch back on the main power source & walllllaaaa!!! What a great satisfaction! All the hard work paid off.

Thank you Tina. You are not going to send me the bill later, are you ? :P

How Reliable Is Email ?

Everyone seems to be relying on email these days. Use for personal or business dealings, just how reliable is email delivery system ? How do you make sure your email reaches the intended recipient/s ? You can use the "Return Receipts" feature which comes with certain email client system, however, this feature will not work everytime, as the availability of such feature is depending on the recipients email server configurations.

Call the recipients each time you sent a mail to confirm whether they received it ? What if you are sending to 100 recipients ? How many calls you going to make ? With email, its meant to cut down on telecommunication costs, so this measure will not served its purpose.

So the best way is to return back a mail to the sender, acknowledged receipt of the mail. It's not that hard or difficult to do. How much time will you waste by just replying, "OK, received. TQ".
Of course, you only do this if the mail/s are important or the sender requesting you to do so.

So if you are a sender & you want to be very sure that the email actually reaches the other party, put a small note requesting an acknowledged receipt. Better be safe than sorry.

Misbehaving IE

If your Internet Explorer got hijacked, what are you going to do ?

Well, the first logical things to do is to scan your computer for spywares & viruses. However, sometimes this scanning just can't resolved the hijacking problem. When you start up the Internet Explorer, it just brings to an irritating website. You might find your Internet Explorer starting to show some signs of hiccups too.

If you are using Internet Explorer 7, you are in luck. All these problem can be restored by clicking on the RESET at TOOLS - INTERNET OPTIONS - ADVANCED.

Learning from someone

I was attending to one user call this evening. Problem connecting to a port system. Managed to get hold of the system personnel who assist to reset the modem at their end. A message appear on the computer screen. Apparently, I need to key in some command at the screen to start up the system.
I was waiting for a return call. Then one of the operation staff saw the prompt on the screen & told me to key a certain key & hit ENTER. Hey!!! The system is back online.

Well, I learn something new from the operation staff today.

That just show that, no matter how significant a person is in an organisation or in your life, we still can learn from them.

Stay Alert

Overheard a conversation between mom & sis. Neighbour, a lady was out from bank & heading home. She noticed that a motorcycle, with two indians was trailing her back home. She called her husband for help & the indians eventually speed off when seing her home.

Can you help me please ?

One day, the office boy came over to me & asked, "Can you please help me ?". Without giving a firm answer of helping, I said "how may I help you?". "I need to borrow RM50, I will pay you back end of the month when the salary is out". It took me a while of answering him, as I was thinking, whether the money will actually come back to me as he promised. Finally, I took out my wallet. I only have RM80. I told him I can only borrow him RM30. He agreed & took it.

If your colleague (someone you hardly know & talk to) approached you to ask for the same, will you do it ? If no, what will you be saying to him / her ?

Well, firstly, if it's from Dell, why aren't they using their corporate email address ?
And just look at the date.
Third, there's no such thing as FREE anymore in this world, more ever a free notebook.
Lastly, the link is pointing to a very strange website, which I dare not click. Don't want to end up, having my notebook infected by virus / spyware.

I'm at other branch office, on standby for one staff who is on holiday for 2 days. Surprised to see the state of his working table. Darn messy! Could not understand how can a late 20's young man tolerate with such messy working environment. Lots of rubbish, empty boxes lying around, newspaper on the tray all not properly organised.

At least what he can do is to allocate 5 - 10 mins before off office hour for some housekeeping task. Not too hard to do. A clean & properly organised work place makes the working environment much better & your colleague will have a good positive impression on you.

IM Stolen Too ?

I wrote about email being stolen, at this link here. Now if email ID was stolen, what else is being compromised ? IM, that's right, instant messenger. Now imagine this, if the irresponsible person is able to write convincing email asking for help (which sounds very genuine), he / she could be use IM doing the same. For those who is unsuspecting, or without giving much thought, might fall into the trap & lost few hundred or thousands of ringgit.

What should you do if you come across this kind of thing ? If you are unsure if the other person is who you are thinking he / she is, don't just believe blinding in the IM. You have fix line or handphone, why don't just pick up the phone & make the call ? Even if he / she told you that the phone is lost, hey!, no harm giving it a ring to confirmed, or you rather loose few thousands ringgit???

Or you can be smart by question some questions to him / her. If you suspect something amiss, you can play games with him / her. Pretend as if you are going to give or borrow the money. If you play along, you might discover something is not right.
