HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BYE BYE 2009!!!!

Welcome 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


2009 Resolution Final Update


1) Complete first year MBA – no fails in exam
Done 100% – two modules exam with flying colors result

2) Improve/change lifestyle habits
– Do not lie
– Focus more
– Be decisive
– Less chili, less ice in meal

Done 50% – not applied fully but doing any of these now will cause me to feel guilty. Awareness raised.
Will keep reducing each unhealthy lifestyle and habits for a better Ongki.

3) By October, buy a diamond necklace (double size of previous) with every month’s saving
Done 50% – I indeed bought a bigger diamond but it’s not with monthly saving. Money management still poor.

4) Organize an overseas trip with family
Not done – parent’s don’t want to go due to H1N1 outbreak. Will plan one in coming year instead.

5) Build TravelSoft and impress Cynthia and help their businesses
80% – Built a brand new module fully by myself, started from scratch. A sense of achievement, and what’s more, client using during Matta Fair, am proud of myself! Who cares whether who got impressed or not, lol.

😆

Hey, reread the Mixed fortune…Zodiac guide to Ox year, pretty close to real life,

Generally, it’s a favourable year. You have three big lucky stars but several unlucky stars around you. So you can expect to face some obstacles on the road to success.
Ongki : Yes, it was a significant year. Marked many new beginnings for me.

Career This is the time for you to shine. Two lucky stars smile on your career. You should make significant progress and get promoted. Don’t be over-confident when you have achieved success. The salaried Ram may make more than sufficient money. It’s a good time for investments and new business ventures.
Ongki: Career progressed well. No promotion but great progress. Manager satisfied with my performance.
Just started a new business with friends, started up great.

Love life With the influence of two unlucky stars, the Ram is likely to have arguments with his/her love interest. But you get to know each other better and take your relationship to the next level.
Ongki: Yes, there were arguments with SCH but we now understand each others better.

Health Watch out for signs of increased stress or burn-out. Take a good rest.
Ongki: Worn out, exhausted with full time job, freelance, new business and part time MBA.

Take note: Although you may feel like a superhero, you’re definitely not one. Take precautions, like everyone else.
Ongki: A safe 2009 has passed. What’s next for 2010?

Celebrating 30 years old birthday


A year where i am at the right point to reflect the past and to plan for the future.
Most ppl in their 20’s doesn’t really know what they are doing because what they should be doing is what everyone else doing.
But starting 30yrs old, thats the beginning of your real own journey.
The future is not something your parents will arrange for u.

To others, the next is marriage, motherhood and i guess thats the ‘maturity’ point
To me, i might be ‘late’ as allen often describe me, my mentality is only at the age of 20.
But no one can escape from this kind of society pressure!
I leave this issues to go by nature, depends how it goes.
However, i am in the midst of planning my future.
What do i want to be in the next 10 years?
Before seeing the next 10 years, i see what did i do in the past 10 years.
We must know where are we before we can find the way to where we want to be.
That makes us different from the mice in the Who Moved My Cheese…

In the past, i grab every single opportuniy that comes to me.
I always think, there is no lose to agree, to say yes, to accept and to do almost everything that comes into my interest.
That explain why i have changed seven jobs in my employment history but that also explained the places and ppl i have met in these years.
My friend described that i have some kind of BIG (blessing in disguise).
But it should no longer be this way, and i won’t let it happen, i will take all the responsibility of what is going to happen to me next, starting 2010.

In the next 10 years, i want to own a profitable business.
2010 is the year where i will put this goal into second priority, aside from doing my MBA.
It is also the starting of my accumulating knowledge process, as per boss’s advise.

– Rented out my nice condo 🙁
– Holiday cum work trip to Taiwan, spending Christmas and New Year in this wonderful and pleasant city.
– Lost my beloved diamond pendant with silver gold necklace during the trip, determined to get a better one next year

Not a very fruitful year, but definitely a significant one.
If 2006 is the turning point of me going uphill and 2007 is the one I’m coming down, I suppose 2008 is the year I was struggling so much to go up again.
Is 2009 the year of me going up again?

That depends on how I plan to succeed it. I have confidence, if I want, I surely can…

– Peng Siang’s wedding, first time being in Alor Setar with another 4 big-man, squeezed in the same car

Erm, nothing much I could recall from the year of 2007 actually. I don’t remember much except tears, tears and still tears!
In the future, if possible, I don’t want to remember this year at all.
If i can use a graph to represent, I think the peak of my life should be in 2006, but it dropped tremendously in the year of 2007.
2006 is like, living in fairy tales, everything were not lasting…my whole life upside down.
2007 is just the process of switching things back to the original.
It’s painful. Love life left a big wound, career moved back to Malaysia, no longer travel for work, gaining back my kg(s) 🙁
But looking back, its all anger, sadness, and the worst thing is, I realised I really got old! Moreover got old without anything worth of my precious age!!!!
Approaching 30s, gal at my age, should have been a mother of at least a steady partner or got married like most of my friends do.
And what did I achieve???
Funny, still a blur, emotional Ongki.

But anyway, being travelled to Alor Setar to witness PS’s wedding at the end of the year, I know what should I do in 2008.
Seeing PS laughing so cheerfully, I think I remember how I used to be happy-go-lucky and laugh as silly as he do now.
Then, looking at the ppl around me like Scott, GE, WB…I feel warm. I told GE, “I’ve got so many friends, it doesn’t worth it”.

Hey, HAPPY NEW YEAR! It’s 1.04am of 1st Jan, 2008!

The coming new year, I want to start living my life to the fullest, of course, history told me that, not all things come smooth, there must be hiccups here and there.
So I am telling myself, I must learn and practise how to achieve a good mental to cope and to strike!

At work
1) Do my Eisentech project well, must have confidence, I aim to ask for increment once the project is well done
2) Learn from my managers, their capabilities, strategy – i cannot be a turtle, hidden under the shell anymore!

Life
1) Attend Juan’s graduation this coming May in Sydney and to visit Jun in Melbourne.
2) To achieve 50K before new house is ready to move in – whether to move in is another story 😀
3) Do not be easily mentally affected.
4) Must have a balance and healthy lifestyle – spend time with family, friends and not just playing with the computer
5) Keep good health, sleep early, wake up early!
6) one last time, NEVER VISIT HIS WEBSITE ANYMORE!!!! Ongki, no one can hurt you except yourself!!!!! Let go!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jan
– still with NZ.MY
– was in good term with IV and YP.
– We played In-Between, somewhere around CNY. I was very unlucky, lose some money.

– Two days before 1st day of CNY, gathered at AY’s house.
– There were AY, CKY, CCY, MS and I. We played blackjack. Won a David Tao’s CD. AY the big loser.

– Third day of CNY, visited Ipoh. Drove my Avanza, with WB and GE.
– Met HL and stayed at his godparents house. HL family was there too.
– They were celebrating his godmom’s birthday. Almost met his whole family.
– We got to meet others coursemates like AChoy and LS, NC and BH (the first and last time meeting her mom), MA and MH and lastly SC.

– At night, we went to a pub, chit chat and played some games to ‘finish’ up the alcohol.
– CY and I both drunk. She even fell down by the roadside 🙁
– I was very unhappy with her presence, they did flirt with each other. I was unhappy and mad but no way to release. I cried…and at the same time, I recalled AD. I think I hate Ipoh.
– I was tired of crying, HL pat on my shoulder and he even did something which I think is quite warm…brotherly act…nothing more than that, just that it’s my first time.
– The last night, before returned to KL, went K with CY’s friends, it was the most torturing night for me. I was hoping to return KL asap. But the fact is nobody realised what was wrong with me.

Feb

– she did what promised. sent bouquet of *teddy bears* to my office.
– i was not at all happy. anger covered my heart, brain and eyes. (i couldn’t believe i did that!!)

Apr
– joined CIS at TPM, a very different environment where all colleagues communicate in Mandarin.

– the sickness of “chi9sin” spreaded from heart, to brain and destroyed thinking system.
– the last phase of the sickness and “certified” as well.
– “chi9sin” = fall for a guy, try to stay away from him but he said he needs u but only as friend, then he angry cox u still chose to go, but when u realised u dun wish to end the friendship, he said NO and turn around to go after your best friend whom u confided in when u were sad.
– the consequence? after work, went to Taman Tasik Permaisuri, felt the feeling of coldness, under the rain for more than 2 hours.
– will never forget the Malay guy who seems to worry so much about my safety, that he accompanied until i finally agreed to go home.
