The best things happen this year

For this year, there are few things that I can consider as the best things happen to me and family. First, it was my sister's wedding last March on the general election day. It was the first wedding among my siblings and will be a memorable ceremony in our family.

Secondly, I got my
promotion last August. My supervisor has agreed to upgrade my position to one level higher after I took his challenge and fulfill my promise to complete a project - Customer Satisfaction Survey system. It was a successful project and good achievement for my career and KRA/KPI this year. After complete this project, I have been trusted to develop another similar system - Internal Satisfaction Survey. Both projects are owned by Customer Service & Practices Management (CSPM) division of my company. Later, I was requested by Group Human Resource & Administrations (GHRA) to develop a new system - Competency Assessment & Development system. The system will be used by the whole company to evaluate and assess the staff achievement throughout the year.

Thirdly, Insya Allah
my parents will go to Makkah to perform their pilgrim or Haji end of this month. This is going to be their third time to be there. I pray for their safety and may Allah give them strength and easiness during performing the Haji. My parents will be in there for 45 days and will come back here middle of January 2009.

Alhamdulillah, that are a few things that I can say best thing happened this year. I hope all our doa and hope will be granted and may Allah bless us. For the next year, I hope more good thing will happen and one of them will be my weeding. Ameen...

Alhamdulillah.. I am so grateful because after 2 years, I got my bonus this year. Besides, the increment also quite ok. It is really helpful for my wedding budget next year, Insya Allah.

That is my second bonus of this year. The first one is the new state government for Selangor. PKR-DAP-PAS (Barisan Alternatif) has formed the new state government after win the 12 general election on 8th March 2008. It was so unexpected that the BA has won the election in Selangor, Kedah, Perak and Penang beside PAS is remains in Kelantan. The election result has shocked the whole nation and other countries where BA has denied BN to win 2/3 majority in parliament. BA won 82 seats while BA won 140 seats from 222 seats. Some of they said it was a 'political tsunamy' in Malaysia. I hope that new state governments will rule the states better than what has been done by BN over 50 years since 1957. I can see that BA has good opportunity to prove that they can be a good government and this is the chance as the preparation to rule the country in 2013, Insya Allah.

By the way, UMNO (main component of BN) now facing many crisis after the election. The PM now is not get full support from the people and I think he should step down. I see he has lack of charisma to be a good leader from the beginning he become the PM. A few years before he became the PM, I have attended a dinner where he gave a speech. I saw, many people were enjoyed having their dinner instead of listening to what he said. Until today, 3 deputy ministers have resigned from their post and UMNO is now so worried if their MPs will jump into the opposition party (BA). We will wait and see what happened after this.

Those two bonuses are really good things happened this year to me. Meanwhile, my sister has her wedding ceremony on the election day. It will be a remembered wedding ceremony of our family even though many of our friends and relatives were not come because of the election. I hope that she will live happy ever after with her husband.

This year going to be interesting for me in my job. After appraisal session with my supervisor last week, I hope that it will be good increment in salary and bonus.

For this year, I want to learn new thing especially Java programming. It will more value for me if I can master this language besides VB.Net that I have now. Sure, I can make good demand when apply a new job after this. I also hope that I can learn on IT infra such as network and server administrator. For database application, I want to learn on Oracle and database administration where all this while I just a database user. So, with all this target, I hope it will make me more value in future career.

By the way, I really hope that we will have bonus this year. It will help me for my wedding next year, Insya Allah. I was definitely frustrated with last year where no bonus given by the company. Hope it's not going to be happened this year.

Happy New Year - 2008

It's already 2008, and I will be 28 in couple of days. This year I hope I will improve myself to be a better person. A lot of thing to do for this year, I have to get money as much as possible for my wedding next year. To achieve that, I have 2 choices ; get a better job with a better salary or do part time job. But I prefer the first one, so I still have time for family and friends. Currently, I am waiting for the test result of IRB (LHDN). Hopefully I pass the test and qualified for the next interview to work with IRB.

This year my sister will get marry on March. Now, my parents are so busy with the preparation of wedding ceremony. I hope my sister will live happily with her future husband. My youngest brother is still studying in Cairo, Egypt in Syariah (Islamic Law) in third year. My fiance also studying there in the same course but she already in final year. They will have the examination next week and I wish them all the best.

I pray this year will a be happy and prosperous year for me and family. A lot of good things shall be happened this year, Insya Allah. Ameen..

Happy New Year 2008!!

I'm back!

After two years, now I'm back. Since last year I have been busy with my work. It's difficult for me to find suitable time for me to write. However, after I have seen many people now start writing in their blog I think I want to start back. Hopefully, I can continue writing my blog after this.

Meantime, it will be the second year for me working at this company, my first permanent job ever. However, I am quite disappointed with my current situation. I am still paid like a fresh graduate. Last year, there is no increment for the salary and just get the bonus 6 months after the others got theirs. The payroll said my name has been missed to get the bonus. For this year, my company did not give any bonus because last year target profit was not achieved. Nonsense! How they do the business? The increment that I get is just enough to pay my prepaid! It’s so unfair while my friends (other company) are paid handsomely.

Now, I am looking for a place to work, new company. I really hope that one day I will get a nice place to work with satisfied salary.

By now I am busy to finish the development for system integration. I suppose to finish it by early of May. My colleagues and I have no good motivation to work and stay back since there is no point for us to work hard since no bonus is given. I just can be patient and pay my duty as usual. By the way, Happy Birthday to my mum which celebrate her birthday on 12 April and it's also the last day for her to pay her duty at work. Now she is retired and stay at home with my father.

I think enough for now. Anyhow, I am back!
