Valuable lesson - tip to survive in the office

Bismillahirahmannirahim.

Along the years while I am working for someone, one tip that I always hold until now is

  • know your boss/supervisor/manager
  • know their style
  • know their standard 
  • know what they want
Believe it or not, by knowing all this or maybe more than this will help you to achieve more in your work. It is not only it helps you to know your boss but then you will be more aware people around you. Because you will know what to expect from them, and once you know what to expect, you need to have plans to counter their action which not along your plan. This in order for you to not playing blaming games. This tip is good for people who start working in every aspect of environment. Let me give you example/story for you to agree or disagree with my tip.

Story 1
This is where I learn that knowing your boss style will save a lot of your time and energy. Years ago I am working at kindergarten where me and this colleague of mine with SPM holder is doing fitting for future student that time. A clear instruction I heard was let the kid try the uniform, then when the kid was settled, the colleague told me that put those shoes also, knowing our lady boss pattern, she will ask to try this also. Indeed it is true that while we ask the kid to put those shoes in, we heard another voice asking us to do so. Isn't it  really save us the energy and time and also our heart feelings? Just a simple understanding being highlight by my colleague of mine I really feel it is a good advice.

Story 2
Later after that, I was working with a male manager that he always looks for standard. Whenever he found our mistake, he will say that why there are no standard! He is the type don't care about wasting. Please redo on new paper when he found a small mistakes. The good things about his standard is, we always do our job up to the standard, and we learn that don't let people find our mistake. Even my other colleague knew our manager standard that we always remember what his requirement because if we paste anything that not up to his standard he will ask us to redo! Phew... but working with him make me learn a lot of things.

Story 3
It is crucial that when your boss has a pattern that will caused you to taking for granted. Like this lady manager of mine which replaced our male manager. She seldom monitoring my work. But I never taking for granted for her lack of supervision but I am still glad that I can do my work freely with nobody push so hard and I still able complete my work. I know how her style is, but because of I am to comfortable with my earlier manager style and seriously speaking that I could not catch up her style. Means I am having trouble on changing. Her style is last minute, because this lady boss of mine have focus on each issues. She can foreseeing each of problems happened and she wanted to avoid and counter it. While she settled each of this issues, and suddenly one of the issues were falls under my JD, all of my works that time will need to be on hold. Working with her, needs a lot of preparation which I really could not cope. But she is not the reason I leave because knowing her style, she always helping us to solve our problem before it became shitter

Story 4
Working with my sister who is controlling everything even I am the lady boss of one of the place. Understanding how she giving promises, how she telling others and how she works. Can really avoid me to have hurt feelings. 

Like I told you earlier, understanding how people surrounding working style can really help you a lot. Counter it, not just let it happened if you want to succeed. This people may push you up or pull you down. You have your own choice. 

Thank you for your time!

SCAM: Cabutan Bertuah daripada MAXIS

Asssalamualaikum,

Hari ni lisa nak cerita, beberapa minggu yang lepas lisa dapat call daripada Indonesia.

Enjoy some massage

Salam…
New things I want to share today are massage center. I have this habit when I’m in Kuching, whenever I sick, I will have traditional massage, but what else I can do when u stay in a stranger place. Thus the remedy is reflexology center. I’ve been visiting few massage centers in PJ – SS2. But I want to introduce u to this Thai Massage – Arokaya Traditional Thai Massage, JJ Bukit Raja, Klang.
I really want to try Thai Massage actually, coincidently, my boyfriend was sick – he got fever and I believed it caused by his new cigar flavor. But then I really have no guts to drive to SS2 today – the jam at LDP and so on. Thus last time I went to JJ Bukit Raja with Dewi and I found this place as it is quite cheaper than at Subang. Of course that I suggest to him to this place..tadaa…

What so special?

U got to experience Thai Massage.
- I asked for foot reflexology, but they also include a bit body massage.
- Man customers will get masseur, while the lady will get masseuse..…

Kuching outing: Telaga Air

Bismillahirahmanirahim..

Minggu lepas 7-9 Ogos, saya  balik Kuching sekejap sebab mertua datang jalan-jalan Kuching. Pak Su husband tengah kursus di Perlis jadi sepatutnya dia yang jadi tour guide, tidak jadi pula. Jadi kami pun balik memandangkan aritu raya tak balik Kuching.

Saya tak ikut husband Sabtu tu sebab mertua nak jalan-jalan kat Serikin. Oh Serikin kalau tak ada barang nak cari, saya memang surrender. Kebetulan keluarga saya nak pergi Telaga Air (katanya nak makan seafood - plan asal mereka sebab menantu balik Kuching), kami teruskan juga sebab ada open house pak cik abang ipar area situ..

Telaga air, kalau sebut, saya akan teringatkan kat situ ada satu tempat kursus yang tersedia pelbagai kemudahan. Kalau u olls nak ke sini, biasanya untuk cari ikan-ikan fresh kerana memang sangat dengan jeti dan boleh juga makan seafood - selain tempat macam topspot kat bandar, kampung Buntal dan Muara Tebas. Memang ceruk-ceruk lah nak makan seafood.

Kebetulan haritu nampak geng-geng man…
