Self-Meditation : Time Mangement

I have trouble with my time management!

Being a full time working woman, in a very busy industry,i really have a very little time for myself..not yet to mention yours truly new company that really need an attention. Everyday is like a battlefield for me, struggling 9am to 8pm in the office, rushing home cooking dinner, having 2 minute rest and continue with work. My mind keep on working even though i am physically asleep!

There one phrase at Web Article that attract my attention:

There is a belief that a messy desk or office reflects a disorganized or messy mind. Whether this is true or not is of little importance. What does matter is that piles of paper, memos and reports on the desk generate a feeling of not being up-to-date with your work, and may also force you to think about more than one job at a time.

Hmm maybe? Ok i’ll give it a try tomorrow..See if it works ya!

Oh by the way, i might will try baking (yea, you read it right )this weekend.. Ha ha…i just excited after reading webwordarticle about a cake..well maybe baking could be a good therapy? I’ll let you guys updated 😀

Someday..someday..i will stay longer at home, and lesser in the office…

How i wish..

There it goes…CNY holiday ended! Sigh, how i wish to have it a bit longer..
Four days off, but i am full with lots of things. Mostly cleaning the house and my room..Hmmm, sometimes it tense me to have to do lots of things when i really want to have a good rest at home…But , yeah, i can’t stand to see the fridge not cleaned, the laundry hasn’t finish, the room hasn’t cleaned, the floor, the cabinet, the…
haih..too many things lah..

I always wish i could someday only do part time at my company, and can spend more time at home. That way i can do more cleaning and arranging the house..With so much things to do and too short time everyday, i barely can’t do it all..

Oh, i just bought myself a book entitled “The Law of Attraction”

haven’t finish reading it, but so far it is as good as the title is :)..Well, just something for my soul and my mind this year ..Yep, lots of things in my mind this year, and its good to have something to ‘feed’ my mind..Well its a valentine gift to myself 🙂

A humble prayer to Raja Azman

I am so sad and touched, with the news Raja Azman, son of Raja Petra now in Sungai Buloh Hospital for….Read it all here people..

He did has went through a very hard time during his custody. Some politic issue has made a human being swallow a razor blade? (oh sorry, i shouldn’t have said things before the Police announce it…my apology )

A humble prayer from one of the people to Raja Azman, really touch my heart. May we all, who love the Truth pray together in our own way:

I ask the Almighty to send His angels to protect and keep Raja Azman safe.
Please protect your humble servant that he may serve your will.
Lessen his hurt and pain. Heal his injuries. Make his strong in spirit.
Bless and keep Raja Azman in your arms against these enemies.
I make this prayer to you Almighty.
Amin.

How to save money

I always wanted to have the consistency on saving same amount or (even increase) every month. But..well, ha ha..there’s always a BUT..

How la…I did try, and of course i can save..but well, its not enough..i had calculated, and i need to save triple amount that i save now, to make me well prepared with my financial future. Ha ha ha!

Well, maybe some of us don’t really bother about saving. But trust me its really important. I bought me and my mom’s life insurance some years back so that at least something is spare for us if just in case someday we need to pay high hospital bills.

I remember when i was a child, i always hate when my mom said “We can’t afford that, we don’t have money”. But think back, she was planning everything for us (me , my 2 younger sisters and my brother) for our universities fee, mostly. She even had the ‘expenses book’, where she wrote everything that she spend monthly.

Well, it was sad to finally realize, how much she had actually keep herself from buying the things she wants because she knows all of us will need the money for our studies. being in the situation where i work and have to save money, trust me mom, i know the feeling now 😛

My little sister always said i am almost like mom, with the word-of-the-month ‘We can’t afford it’..Ha ha..yep, sister, we can’t afford it. Its for your own good!

If i have my own child one day, i will teach them the way my mom teach us, saving. We can’t afford everything. Ha ha..well that’s good tho, if not, i might become a spoil brat now..

This is a good article we all should think about. As i keep telling my self , Save and just spend on necessary things. It won’t make you stinky, because you know when and where to spend.

Emergencies:

If there’s one certainty in life, it’s that unexpected things can happen at any time. Whether it’s a natural disaster, an unplanned illness, the loss of a job, or a bad investment, the financial repercussions of an emergency situation can be debilitating if you aren’t properly prepared. A well established savings account can help prevent a financial crisis when these situations arise.

Debt Prevention:

The main reason that people go into debt is because they make purchases that they can’t afford. In these instances, they usually turn to credit cards (which charge high interest rates and are often hard to pay off). A well-funded savings account can allow you to purchase the items outright and avoid the pitfalls of borrowing money.

Plan for the Future:

Everyone has something that they are striving for. Whether it’s money to buy a new car, pay for an education, or fund an early retirement, many of the things that we want can end up costing a good deal of money. An efficient and disciplined savings plan can help you achieve those goals sooner and without the drawbacks of debt.

P/S : Planning budget for my new house now..and …hmmmm….money..money..money 🙂

How to Avoid On-the-Job Weight Gain

Interesting title?

Yep, as i am on my way to loose some weight, i would love to share this. I miss my days when i don’t have to worry anything i wear, because thay just fit nicely on me..:(

Even if you love your job, it may be killing you.

Australian researchers found that men sitting at their desks more than six hours a day are nearly twice as likely to be overweight than those who sit for less than 45 minutes a day. While women fared slightly better—spending on average 20 more minutes on their feet at the office than men—researchers conclude that a sedentary job is a major health concern for both genders.

And it’s no secret that sedentary jobs (and lifestyles) have contributed dramatically to the accelerating obesity rate of the past 20 years. Put emphasis on the word ‘dramatically’—a study conducted by the University of Chicago in 2001 found that a worker in a sedentary career may end up with a Body Mass Index 3.3 units higher than someone in a highly active job. If you’re 5’5″ this can mean an increase in weight from 140 pounds to 155 pounds!

Now that you’ve heard the bad news, let’s turn to the good news…

You CAN love your less-than-active job and be fit. Here’s how:

1. Be sure to eat. It’s easy to slog through a day of meetings, e-mails, and phone calls to discover at 4 p.m. that you haven’t eaten since breakfast. But, your body needs energy to get you through the day. Make it a priority to have a healthy and tasty meal—along with 1-2 healthy snacks. It is not a sin to opt for such shortcuts as microwave meals, as long as you read labels to avoid items with excess calories and sodium.

2. Compensate, compensate. Get physical to compensate for your sedentary workday. Join a gym, take an early morning run, or find time for fitness fun with your family. Buy one or two pieces of home exercise equipment that will allow you to exercise no matter what the weather.

3. Rework your network. Chances are, your friends and co-workers need help with their love handles just as much as you do. So, try some new activities that don’t revolve around food. Organize a bi-weekly volleyball game, walk during lunch, or play a quick round of mini-golf after work.

4. Bring your buddies on board. While you’re coaxing co-workers to modify those after-work habits, see if you can’t involve them in a friendly get-fit challenge during work hours. By sharing healthy potluck lunches, exchanging recipes, and providing moral support, you’ll find that getting in shape can be a team-building triumph. (You might even check with Human Resources or management to see if you can involve them in a fun or meaningful way—since healthy employees save $$$.)

5. Don’t eat due to boredom. Blacklist the office vending machine by stashing strategic healthy snacks (apples and almond butter, low-cal energy bars, nuts, or hummus and pita bread) that will give you a lift without adding to your waistline. If you know that occasionally you’ll fall—and most of us do—pick out ahead of time the items you can live with so that your dip doesn’t become a dive. Keep water at your desk; it’ll give your hands something to do when you’re stressed and will divert you from eating when you’re not really hungry.

6. Vary your routine. We all have them— those daily social rituals, like heading upstairs to the cafeteria for a mid-morning latte and muffin. You can still have those items…but make it sometimes, not all times. If you want to change your life in big ways, try some small changes, like substituting a yogurt and black coffee with skim milk half the time. You’ll save about 470 calories (660 vs. 160)! (And you’re taking the stairs up to the cafeteria, right?)

7. Lose the technology. Modern advances are great, but do you control them or do they control you? As much as possible, take advantage of opportunities throughout the day to get up and move! Deliver that memo in person, sit on a stability ball at your desk to improve your posture, park at the far end of the parking lot for a brisk walk to your building. You’ll be surprised how quickly minor changes can improve your energy level and help you get fit.

8. Choose wisely. Whether you normally go out for lunch or eat in the cafeteria, try to make your meal choices conscious ones. Learn how to eat out wisely, and remember how much better you feel come mid-afternoon when you eat healthy. If you find that your cafeteria or workplace doesn’t offer healthy choices, check with the person who’s in charge of food service—you may be the person who tips the balance to get better options!

One in five Americans is obese; three in five are either overweight or obese. But sitting at a desk doesn’t have to mean you’ll be just another statistic! Incorporating these simple strategies into your workday will bring you one step closer to being a healthier, more energetic you.

Malaysia and more politics make me dizzy

Just clock off from office, and having my own time at oldtown white coffee :)..I had some mee with minced chicken and layered tea ..hehe…At least it ease my mind ..

I just read some blogs which discussing about current political issue in Malaysia, and indeed it is very interesting. Thanks to the government for always do the Reading campaign, it remind me everyday to read their blogs, and i do respect those writer who write such beautiful and honest post on what they have in mind.

I am not into politics, but to read the posts, it really make me realize that the current government should do their reading and try to understand what Malaysian discussed. Do not ban any website or put people into prison just because they are talking.

Think in a positive way, take the comments to improve. Well.. like my boss always said, go outside and check what people says about our service.

If you come back with all nice comments, you will be in danger. Come with nasty complains and we will start from there.

Its true tho! With lots of nasty complaints we improve day by day. We know our stuffs, and we are more confident to talk. I mean, what it is in a company to kill (opss, maybe too harsh) hmm put their own clients to prisons just because they are telling the truth? Ok, some are not true, but for me i will gladly prove that what my client say is not true.

I always love marina Mahatir’s writing, and the person herself 🙂 . This is quoted from her writing:

My interpretation is that a good leader is one who doesn’t sit around trying to find ways for people to love him or her but does the right thing for his country and people and hope they will see the justification for it, and eventually love him or her.

you can find her blog at http://rantingsbymm.blogspot.com 🙂

Very true ain’t it?

Well…it’s up to everyone to decide…But for me, i will vote the leader who respect in honesty, love and people…

Weekend reflection

Went to church yesterday morning, and the Mass is all about love. well people know we are Christian by our Love anyway…:)…

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Ain’t it sweet…I always remember and love 1 Corinthians 13:1-13. In short and simple words, it taught me thousand things.

Raising up in a big and loving families, i learn a lot about love. It never mean that we never hate, we never hurt or we never do any mistake to each other. But when there is love, even a bit, forgiveness will come afterward. We will forgive and forget, and remain in love with each other.

In a strange way, my beautiful family seldom shows love in hugs or in words. But we show it in our everyday life.

My grandma, my beautiful and sweet grandma. She will have us (me and my cousins) work in a paddy field and keep telling us, that if we did not do well in school, we will have to do it for the rest of our life. And yup, the paddy field work really killing me, and of course my cousins..ha ha..

It was hot, long hours and dirty. I keep telling myself everytime i had to go with her to the paddy field, that i will not do that for the rest of my life. i will graduate and have a work and become somebody.

Ha ha..it’s funny tho, how my grandma shows her love to all her grandchild. I mean, to torture us in a hot paddy field just to make sure that all of us understand how important education is.

But yea, we all end up not working in a paddy field, but respected what the paddy field had taught us..Everyone has a different way to show love, just like my grandma did. I owe her so many things in life, especially LOVE.

And in the mass..i prayed for my late grandma and grandpa, may their soul rest in peace, and may Lord Jesus Christ bring the in his kingdom..Amen.
