meeting with an Australian guy
its almost 1 40 am when i emailed few quotations to few customers.
they came from few different companies with different business cultures.
i just tertiarap atas lantai
in the bedroom
with all the lights on
while the wife n kids were sound asleep.
yeah.. me is da boss.
for that small little company.
i’ve tulis one entry somewhere about one chinese businessman cerita to me about malay businessman
why we mostly failed compared to them.
and how he said that i need to think like a chinaman
boss means kerja kerja kerja lebih from others
boss melayu – weh, gua boss tau! keja gua main golf okeh.. dgn datuk sana tan sri sini.
boss means you were the first one to arrive and the last one to leave the office
boss melayu – chait!! ni kompeni aku, aku punya suka la mau masuk pukul 11 balik pukul dua….
boss means you tahu tahu tahu tahu tahu tahu whats is going on in your business line
boss melayu.. alaaaa sebab tu i hire you..you must know how to tackle this problem.. you jangan tanya i……
boss means you sacrifice sacrifice sacrifice many many many many leisure in life
gaji aku mesti lima digit, kereta aku nak latest E class with driver.
boss means you must think think think think a few more steps from others
what ? go ask my engineers…..
boss means you must be bold and brave – in making decisions.
alaaa takpalah…okeyla dah macamni, orang lain lagi teruk appaaa… alaaa kau kerja kuatpun, kalau rezeki secupak tak kan segantangnya oii.
and many more things yg i rasa not appropriate to share.
all those things biasanya during few early years of your business
there will be time
when all your hardworks
all the tears
all those nonsense
diberi Anugerah dari Ilahi
and that will be the time, you reward yourself.
pada masa tu lah
biasanya, orang orang melayu
akan mula bercakap
bila kita memandu kereta besar sikit dari mereka
bila rumah tanah luas sikit dari mereka
bila baju mahal sikit dari dia
tru i guess.
frens, doakan moga abanglong berjaya; dunia dan akhirat.
so very long tak bukak wordpress !! sib baik password masih ingat.
my last entry was ages ago though i promised to write more often
menjadi alasan !
– the company now is back to all male company. the female engineer had left last two months
– is replaced by one young engineer. terengganu mari. i was lucky to have him on board as he was very talented and hardworking. my major client was pleased with him and they were very happy. translation – more jobs to the company…insyaAllah
– cuaca in office tidak menentu… ribut !
– life…. hermmmm
its good to write again
see you all again !
the pic was taken in one of the felda in pahang
was there to tag along the official wedding photographer.
budak baru belajar ! hehe
i met one guy there
a government officer
who eventually became my client now
doa doa yer !
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
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
personal insurance paid
hensem bosses …muahahahaha. ini selingan.
apasal kenot deliver as the company expected ?
i called both of them to the room
short sharp serious talk
asked them whats the problems ?
they said nothing
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.
He called me.inquiry about signal decoder and converter
Never deal with him nor his department before though their company is one of our major client
Takpa nanti saya check n will call u back later. Aku cakap sambil jot his name kat kertas
Aku then save his name dalam henpon changgeh aku huhu
Tadi aku nak call dia
Nk inform about harga n delivery
Aku amik henpon changgeh aku
Slide slide tekan tekan tekan

intro entry from the recent trip to bandung
hotel menu – called jus energy. mixture of lobak bit,cranberries,ginger
wierd taste but sufficient effect
otak otak – nice, sweet and so sedap
bit pricey though !
their version of bubur nasi – from a stall tepi jalan
despite all the glorious foods- still failed to find mee bandung or sirap bandung there ! obviously a failed mission in Bandung
