Happening of 2010

It is the time of the year again. This entry i will try to summarize my 2010 experiences. I have been to ups and downs, many are ups.

1) First thing happen in early 2010, i manage to finish my thesis writings and submitted on-time (approximately 20 months). Submitted to faculty and normal, ding dong here and there and took them 8 months to call for my VIVA. Well, went for VIVA as instructed and done my best and WA...LA.... i passed.... Then do my correction again, as instructed and submitted and now STILL WAITING.... But at least pass my master, not easy being "the first" Master by Research Major in Marketing in UNIMAS that finish the master writings. And among the few among my colleagues that submitted on-time and fast. Am quite proud actually and my greatest gratitudes to my supervisor, Associate Professor Dr. Ernest Cyril de Run.

2) Joined SEGi College Sarawak campus as programme coordinator for graduate studies and applied business research on 12 April 2010. Pass interview in one shot in the morning and by late noon, get the offer from them for the position that i dont apply before. Oh well, took up the challenge and joined them despite the long and winding 'rumors' around that say how bad and bad is SEGi. Eight month passed and i proved those rumors wrong. SEGi is great. Without SEGi, i wouldn't be what and who i am today. Resigned two month ago, get a better offer at UCSI and next week 3 January 2011 my first day there. New year, new life, new work. ha ha.... ^^

3) Done programme accreditation for SEGi for four programme, BBUS Marketing, Human Resource Management and Administrative Management 3+0 in collaboration with University of Southern Queensland, Australia. Another one is BA (Hons) Business and Management 3+0 in collaboration with University of Sunderland, United Kingdom. Once all these programme being accredited by MQA, all the graduate (new and previous) will get their degree recognized by JPA and all the government bodies in Malaysia. So they should all thank me then. Ha ha... Plus, the accreditation came on the same day for all the four programme and im alone handling the academic, with Hailey help me do student files, Mahani help me do lecturers file and Fairol help me get everything prepare for the accreditation visit. Overall i do over 80% of the work. Tired and satisfied. Proof a lot of people wrong, that nothing is impossible as long as you have heart into doing it. Now just awaiting the news from MQA. So now im expert already in COPPA. Waka Waka.... ^^

4) Broke up with Kolly. Four years relationship. Few month back, we from bad to worst and finally she pop out the question and ask for breakup. Of cos, im sad and done many to retain her. I am not happy, i dont want a break up. But after few month, i finally open up my heart and brain (thanks to my elder brother for the advice actually) and i move on. Now i have new love and will cherish her and wont repeat the same mistakes again. I have put down my ego, temper and bad attitude, and whenever i do wrong to anyone especially my love one, the first thing i will apologize and make sure it wont happen anymore. I will cherish her more, love, care and be there for her. Weekdays i owned by the company, weekend it's our time. No work, no others, just sweet time together.

5) My family house finally sold off by bank few month back. We have move to a new place. We rented a house at Jln Kiong Soon no 29. A nice place. Even though the house is old (approximately 30 years in age), but it is so comfy. Last Christmas i went back and the first instance i step into the house, i found peace and joy. Glad my mom make the right choice. Things from worst now getting better. After move house, my dad get more "kang tao" and earning extra cash. My brothers are doing better and i found new love and life. Something good that im looking ahead now.

6) Send my mom to Sibu GH last Christmas Eve and do ultra sound on her neck. Got three lump at her neck, one big, one medium and one tiny. She will undergone a minor operation soon next year and hope everything goes well. Im worried actually. So so worried.

Thats the few big things happen in my 2010. Will detail one by one once i have ime to do that. Plus today im sick and lazy also. Waka Waka... ^^ Till then.... Laters......

Working life in SEGi College Sarawak

Today my last day with SEGi College Sarawak. Actually it is 31 December 2010, but tomorrow im on leave and Friday i only work for half day to clear my stuff.

I started off joining SEGi as a Programme Coordinator on 12th of April 2010. It is a big challenge for me to join SEGi due to the many bad rumors and comments that i heard before i join the company. As i was desperate and need money to sustain, i tool up the job as the programme coordinator for Graduate Studies and Applied Business Research.

Wow, first week at job really almost kill me. With the loads and stress, i persevere. I remember my Supervisor, Dr. Ernest, always told me this, "if you can stand here, you can stand outside there." Indeed, he is true. Its nothing worst than my years in UNIMAS and off cause the constant 'bomb' from my supervisor when i do my degree and master.

Nothing big deal actually here in SEGi. I have done four programme accreditation at the same time, preparing documentations mainly alone. It is two time thicker than my thesis for each programme. So work goes on and i continue and just bite my tongue and do, do, do, do.....

Yeah, manage to finish up all, and build School of Graduate Studies that was never there. Know a lot of friends, met students, being curse by students, and so many more. Include met my current Honey.

Overall, i will say this, SEGi is good but need more improvement. Sitting on management position here in SEGi i can testify that SEGi is ok. SEGi have the best working environment so far, from the different places that i have went to. SEGi also is a very good training ground for those who want to remain in academic in the long run. Not only i testify on this, but also all the previous managers and employees that left SEGi for a better offer. Without SEGi, i don't think i would learn and achieve what i am today. So my credit to SEGi and the team. "You guys are the best."

Im sad, leaving this wonderful place. Even though at times there is a lot of disagreements, but at the end of the day, we are all happy and contented in our life and undertakings in SEGi.

I will miss this place a lot. Untill then, later....

The In Thing with Facebook

I must admit, i'm addicted to Facebook. Whenever i open a browser, Facebook. Whenever i close a browser, Facebook again. Oh ya, I'm back on blogger. Well, was actually inspired by blog. Amidst the busy schedule he have with his kampungs and drinks and leeches, he still be able to write. Oh ya, he also work lar... I think something like a man biting koala or a Hippopotamus in pink pon pon.

So, i'm saying about Facebook. What with Facebook that is so so so, i mean really, the in thing and addicting stuff? If i have the ability to sustains hour and hour of looking at computer screen, i think i'll stuck in Facebook, foreeevvvveeeerrrrr....

The fellow that create this portal sure getting $$$ a lot. Or a lot of $$$??? Confusing, after so used to the Facebook language.

It is fun, seeing people post different things there, movies, songs, notes, critics, attacks, politics and etc. Where else can you get all those in one? Facebook, obviously. I'm not promoting Facebook if some of you were asking yourself when going through this essay, or whatever that you called it, (i rather called it a crap). It is upon curiosity, why Facebook? Aint Twitter better? Or what happen to Friendster (used to be the in thing before the arrival of Facebook in UNIMAS community).

I don know. There is always way to different route. Same as here. Not only staff Facebooking (hereforth, Facebook is fb cos i tired of typing the long long word. Phew, what a relieve~~). Student fb, lecturer fb, even my friend 56 years old dad is fb'ing and added me in his friend list (that apparently, we never contact after add). And i have over 700 friends in fb that 80% of them i never met. Lol~~~

Even the government now go to fb. Ever heard of 1Malaysia fb? What to say advertisement, that obviosuly taking advantage of this and start manipulating people. It is not that i don support marketers as i being one, but that the reality. The moral, don trust the advertiser cos mostly are hypocritical and manipulators. So, am i slapping myself now? *&(*^^%^&%$^&.........
