still in the office. some of the staff were sent to install something in clienst place in shah alam, they use my car thus i cant balik yet.

also today, after many years managing this small company, i was tested

kesabaran, ketabahan, kasih sayang, setia kawan dan semangat juang.

i love all my staffs

i do

they were more like a family to me

the adik adik who were cling to their big abanglong

as shield of hope,faith and life.

so; was very very rare they kena marah

i never remember raising my voice to any of them.. not once.

the mistakes normally were neutralised with discussion and small meetings

naik lemak though, sometimes.

as the business is tougher and tougher

the overhead is bigger and bigger

costing is higher

yet the pricing or the quotations remains the same as zaman kaset dan floppy discs

i put the trust to two new engineers

one female and one male.

being with us for almost a year already.

both employed as a project engineer

assingned to do things a project engineer should do.

well..basically; everything they must do one


we, as in me and my partner

waited passionately for them to grew with us

have the same spirit, speak the same language, breath the same air.



ladyluck wasnt on our side

i dont really know what was wrong

kat mana silap kat mana salah

it seems that they sort of tak ada semangat

just kerja for the sake of makan gaji

ada kerja aku buat, ada kerja ada gaji kind of thinking


suruh design – failed – alasan, baru kerja… dah setahun dah wei

suruh buat marketing – failed – tak reti nak cakap – whattttt!!!!!!!

masuk kerja – patut 830 but almost 900 am baru sengih sengih clock in

suruh follow up clients – sekali bising sekali buat

suruh buat daily report – sekali tanya sekali hantar… tak tanya tak buat

information – most of the time they kept to themself… bila client call me about the progress, aku nganga tatau apa

suruh survey new market – hampehhhh…. none !

ajak makan – laju pulak !!!

suruh penetrate new departments dekat the same customer – till now tadek results….

dalam resume says can do this can do that – time kerja kenot do this kenot do that; bila ungkit, u ada mentioned dalam resume; owhhh itu saja tulis encik… was their answer.








tak dinafi also

they kerja okeh

sanggup stay back till four in the morning time kerja banyak

sanggup day trip to jb to meet a client

sanggup kesana kesini to settle problems

sanggup and boleh menerima any arahan etc



but project engineers need to do project engineers stuffs whaaaaat

salary – good

transportation allowance

minyak allowance

toll allowance

phone allowance

paid overtimes

personal insurance paid

hensem bosses …muahahahaha. ini selingan.

apasal kenot deliver as the company expected ?




until today

i called both of them to the room

short sharp serious talk

asked them whats the problems ?

they said nothing


said me

this meeting is the final meeting

if there is any next meeting about the same situation/problem

it gonna be an ugly conversation…

i give u two orders

one – follow all the company rules. all of the rules. period

two – i need results on sales and new business. i gave them target…

please ubah sikap

kalau tak boleh ubah… then it means that we can no longer work together.





once my former boss in japanese firm said to me

there are three rules adi-san

rule number one – boss always right

rule number two – follow rules number one

rule number three – boss always right.
