Valuable lesson - tip to survive in the office


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!

Kereta kena tarik oleh MPSJ


Pada hari Jumaat lepas, atas urusan pejabat, Lisa pergi TNB Taipan. Sesungguhnya, area Taipan adalah area yang susah nak dapat parking. Jadi, Lisa pun parked kereta kat belakang back lane TNB Taipan, walaupun Allah SWT dah bagi hint yang pegawai MPSJ tengah clamping kereta. Hatiku berkata, alat clamping tak banyak ni, sempat nie settle kat TNB.
Tidak ku sangka dalam satu jam juga urusan di TNB, apabila Lisa keluar. Kereta ku dah tiada. Argh sudah! kereta kena tarik ni. Tanya abang yang buat kasut pun cakap macam tu. Lisa pun telefon husband, mintak husband datang tapi tak mengharap sebab masa tu dah nak masuk waktu solat Jumaat. Lisa pun call MPSJ, nasib baik angkat, dorang kata kena pergi depoh tunda carik sendiri. OH MAI! Sangkut kat Taipan, tak tahu nak buat apa, malas nak susahkan orang. Tetapi terpaksa jugak call kawan Lisa mai amik.
Dalam hati Lisa, walaupun senyum dan gelak gelak. Mempersoalkan, Ya Allah, kenapa aku ya Allah, kenapa aku diduga begini Ya Allah, …

Enjoy some massage

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..…
