My Girl 2003






It's a very lovely Thai movie, I'd been searching for sometime and finally manage to watch it. Really a very nice movie. Worth to spend you time to watch it.

It's showed since Oct. 2003 but only until lately I knew about this movie. Not sure they don't promote it or Malaysians are addicted to CG movies and those superstar movies.

It's just a very simple story and it remind me about Shunji Iwai movies. Simple and no pressure when watching it.

About the actors, Charlie Trairat is the cute little boy named Jeab, can't found much information on net. And the lovely little girl, Noi-Naa, is acted by Focus Jirakul. She is 10 years old at that time, and now she is a pretty lady.

Why Employees Leave Organisations?

Very nice article.

WHY EMPLOYEES LEAVE ORGANISATIONS ? - Azim Premji, CEO- Wipro

Every company faces the problem of people leaving the company for better pay or profile.

Early this year, Mark, a senior software designer, got an offer from a prestigious international firm to work in its India operations developing specialized software. He was thrilled by the offer.

He had heard a lot about the CEO. The salary was great. The company had all the right systems in place employee-friendly human resources (HR) policies, a spanking new office,and the very best technology,even a canteen that served superb food.

Twice Mark was sent abroad for training. 'My learning curve is the sharpest it's ever been,' he said soon after he joined.

Last week, less than eight months after he joined, Mark walked out of the job.

Why did this talented employee leave ?

Arun quit for the same reason that drives many good people away.

The answer lies in one of the largest studies undertaken by the Gallup Organization. The study surveyed over a million employees and 80,000 managers and was published in a book called 'First Break All The Rules'. It came up with this surprising finding:

If you're losing good people, look to their immediate boss .Immediate boss is the reason people stay and thrive in an organization. And he 's the reason why people leave. When people leave they take knowledge,experience and contacts with them, straight to the competition.

'People leave managers not companies,' write the authors Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman.

Mostly manager drives people away?

HR experts say that of all the abuses, employees find humiliation the most intolerable. The first time, an employee may not leave,but a thought has been planted. The second time, that thought gets strengthened. The third time, he looks for another job.

When people cannot retort openly in anger, they do so by passive aggression. By digging their heels in and slowing down. By doing only what they are told to do and no more. By omitting to give the boss crucial information. Dev says: 'If you work for a jerk, you basically want to get him into trouble. You don't have your heart and soul in the job.'

Different managers can stress out employees in different ways - by being too controlling, too suspicious, too pushy, too critical, but they forget that workers are not fixed assets, they are free agents. When this goes on too long, an employee will quit - often over a trivial issue.

Talented men leave. Dead wood doesn't.

I want my holiday!!!!!!!!!!

I start on leave since last Wednesday until today, which total 8 days. But I don't feel to have any good sleep in these few days.

1. 6/2 Wed morning, I go home from work cause I need to standby at P1 until the system is running.
2. 8/2 Fri midnight, rush to Serdang Hospital to reset the controller due to power failure. The phone call never stop until the next day morning due to repeated problem.
3. 9/2 Sat morning, go back to Serdang Hospital to recheck the power supply and reset the controller.
4. 9/2 Sat midnight, rush back to Serdang Hospital cause the UPS failed.
5. 12/2 Tue night, rush to P1 cause those sohai don't know that the chiller can't start if the chilled water is too cool. Manually force chiller run.

I don't understand how can an operation and maintenance company employ some sohai to run the plant. Some of the operator don't really know how to use a computer, until the stage that they don't know where is the Windows Start button O_o. I don't know how to describe these sohai. Sometime it make me so frustrated that I nearly come out those f words.

I saw a lot of first class equipments maintain by third class operation. At the end, these system is just a lousy system because no one know how to operate and maintain it. If Malaysian people still think that a control system do not need specialist to maintain, then we will stay forever in the third class world.

And from this lesson, next Chinese new year I will go to vacation, so please don't call me cause I wouldn't be around. I just want to good rest not 24hour standby for call. I'm a engineer not operator. Please respect me. Thank you.

Happy Chinese New Year


Well, 1 year pasted and it's Chinese New Year again.

Ok, don't ask about when I going to give angpao. I don't want to say any bad word these few days. And for those married, remember you still need to give me angpao although I said last year I don't want any. Please tell me girl to marry me this year or else you all need to give me angpao no matter you like it or not.

Then about the conclusion about last year. It not a very good year for me. I had been worked like no day and night, but at the end, I feel like do it for fun and no one care about the hardworking that I had put in. Anyway, once again it's new year so I don't want to say any bad word. I just hope next year I can be more wisely and fair to myself.

Ok, for all my friends, I wish you all Happy Chinese New Year and a prosperity Mickey year.

... and wish me that I can be sold out this year :(

The hottest news

Since last week I was busy to end my project and finally it's going to end. After working more than 24 hours none stop, today I can have a rest.

Read back some newspapers and I think the most hottest news is the Hong Kong star, Edison and his porno with female artists.

Had you saw the photo?

At first I thought it is another photoshop creation. But trust me that, I think it's real. The photo is so real until you can't create it using any software.

Now all the forum is talking about this topic. Who got the source of these photos? Is it real? The person who post the photos become God over the night. 470M hits in a day and 28000 reply.

My blog only got 5k hit after two years :(

If you watch Death Note before, this is the real Death Note.

Police arrest a suspect but found out that he is not the source. That suspect suicided after that(not sure true or not). No one know who post/own these photos, and he/she is named Kira.

I'm not sure will it be more porno coming out, let wait and see.
