This green leaflet put on the table for the taking show the various set meal combinations with respective prices. Overall, the food was good with plenty of privacy – just the 2 of us were dining in an entire empty restaurant that can cater to a wedding banquet. I shall be going down south tomorrow morning to Kuala Lumpur and by Friday, will be down south further and come back to KL to attend the Mooncake Festival sponsorship dinner table of 10 that was paid for by our company in a hotel.

Hence, this blog may or may not be updated for another week as I shall be on the go all the time traveling for work.

Benefits of Checks and using a Cloud Based Software to Create and Print Checks on Demand

Checks always will be one of the most powerful tools in every transaction if you use wisely use it. A cleared check with a proper memo (described clearly is that checks you wrote for on the bottom of the check) on it is used as a contract what for that payment, which is not possible, if you send the money electronically like wire or credit/debit card. A cleared check is a proven receipt also. Payee can’t argue or deny with you ‘oh this is not what you paid me for’ or ‘that part of job or product is not included when we talked’.

16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done

16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done

The above is a detailed and long infographic specially designed to show case the 16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done. As it is self-explanatory, I shall not go into detail other than the summary. It is pertinent to me too and teaches one not to be a perfectionist but to be excellent in whatever endeavour your pursue. Also plan for tomorrow by tonight or jot down roughly what you want to do and spend the time productively; you can also plan it in your head, instead of jotting down if you can remember.

As for me, I am too lazy to jot down, so I always plan ahead and try to maximise the time that I have NOW. It is also good to give back to society to invest in life after death. Do some charitable work or pray and spend some quiet time alone with God to recharge and let the Holy Spirit be your beacon of light to guide you through this treacherous path called ‘life’

Get the right tools and use technology to help you out. The internet is your world of oyster where all informationn can be found. Just know how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Also, enjoy the moment and don’t sleep too much; otherwise you will come to poverty. Anyone who loves to eat, enjoy life and sleep without working or lifting a finger will surely come to poverty and become hungry.

While working, enjoy your life and sometimes pamper yourself now and then like eating delicacies or going for spas and massages to help rejuvenate and destress to chase the blues away. Live life to the fullest and work hard and smart. Whether you are in business or working for others as an employee, remember to save more than you spend to save up for your retirement so that it is golden and not woeful.

Searching for That JOB

After graduating in 1994, I remember looking fervently for a job and I applied to dozens of companies, where a few called me up for an interview, before finally landing myself a job in a computer school. I became an IT trainer, teaching Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Access. I also taught BASIC programming at a junior level. I recalled working 9 hours in a row, with each lesson lasting 3 hours. If we have 3 lessons in a day, we called it ‘caterpillar’ and if there is a break of 3 hours in between, we called it ‘butterfly’. I don’t know why it was named as such, but those where the days we colleagues destress by cracking jokes, usually related to the private parts. 🙂 And we laughed over it during recess time.

I have had my share of filling up to 4 -6 forms of details on the spot and wait for the interview afterwards. In Singapore, there will always be x-rays done and medical checkups before you are cleared for employment. I recalled going for at least 5 x-rays for every new job that intended to hire me. Some lasted long while others were short stints. After 12 long years of ‘hardship’ of studying and working, I finally called it quits and returned to Penang, Malaysia for a slower pace of life.

For most people a JOB is ‘Just Over Broke’, which I fully agree. You are paid just enough so that you won’t leave and Not more! I was living from paycheque to paycheque and was always broke at the end of the month, leaving my bank account to 2 digits and even 1 digit one time! There was no savings in any form and it was all into expenditure to pay for bills, shopping, etc.

Well, now I am happy to say, I landed myself a Dream job to work in a home office doing administrative work and also maintaing the company website that I designed. By God’s grace and some luck, I got myself a moderately understanding boss who was initially my website client and now we work together on many projects. He helms the company while I do all the computer work or any work related to computers. And the workstation is just a walk to the next room, working in my pajamas.

Condo in Damansara

Nice condo in Damansara

I was at a client’s place in Damansara where we have a current project. For the sake of the business, I shall not reveal which Condo it was, but suffice to say it was one of the oldest and most well-kept condos in Damansara. Here, you can see the beautiful blue-tiled pool surrounded by greenery with red blooms or chili fruits which adds to the attraction of the place.

Here is another view of the pool with the main building on the left side overlooking the awesome view of the swimming pool, dotted in dark blue tiles with turquoise tiles.

Had a Stroll at KOMTAR Walk

This morning, after an early lunch of dim sum, I walked up the stairs to KOMTAR to enjoy the view of new restaurants, moving display of pictures and photos on LED ceiling lights, took a break at Marry Brown empty seats and just absorb the colourful sights and cafeterias along both sides of the aisle. There was a huge display of durian that greeted us near the entrance. Durian is supposedly the ‘king of fruits’ in Malaysia with its pungent flavour and fragrance. It is an acquired taste; otherwise foreigners will think it smells like used socks, according to then President Obama, during his trip to Malaysia sometime back.

I was mesmerised by a colourful ‘parade’ of people in Samba-like costumes walking along the KOMTAR Walk aisle and took the opportunity to snap a photo for lifetime memory and posterity here in this blog. You cannot miss the colourful ostrich feathers of red, blue, green, yellow and the like. A Marilyn Monroe look alike and Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean lookalike was there too as eye candy. I guess I was lucky to have this opportunity with the small group to attract tourists such as myself and friend, albeit being locals. Can you find me carrying a placard that says, “I love To The Top, KOMTAR?”

The above photo was taken at ‘Japanese Street’, fully adorned with the signature pink cherry blossoms, local to Japan and its sushi outlets selling Japanese ice-cream and of course, sushi. There was also a Rolls Royce on display at the foyer; I don’t know why it is there in the first place and it was not even offered for a lucky draw. But the model is old compared to my uncle’s Phantom in Singapore that has sleeker style and more chic.

SpeedRent – Linking up Landlords and Tenants

AN online platform, Speedrent, is available in Malaysia for landlords and tenants to deal directly with one another. “The app connects the tenant directly with the landlord. The tenant does not need to pay a deposit,” says founder Wong Whei Meng. On the website, it says “Speedrent makes home renting DIY easy!”

Traditionally, he says, tenants who rent a place for RM1,000 monthly through an agent would have to pay RM4,000 in total – a two-month security deposit, one month utility deposit (both which are refundable) – and the one-month advance rental. But with Speedrent, Wong says, the tenant pays RM2,000 upfront (RM1,000 for the first-month rent and the other RM1,000 goes to Speedrent.)

“So this is 50% less in terms of upfront cost for the tenant.” He says the landlord will also pay Speedrent the equivalent of a month’s rent. In return, the landlord will be covered by an insurance policy if the tenant bolts before the one-year tenancy is up. This, he says, is in partnership with Allianz General Insurance. “Traditionally, if your tenant runs away after six months, you get the five months that he paid, and you get to keep the three months security and utility deposits.

“But with Speedrent, if the tenant defaults on payment or goes MIA, then the landlord will get the six months’ rent. And he will get another two months rental guarantee from the insurance plus RM15,000 and RM1,000 as an inconvenience benefit. “So in total, he gets about nine to 10 months of rent.” The app generates a tenancy agreement template for both parties to sign online. This is sent to Inland Revenue Board for stamping, making it legal and binding.

Speedrent also does a credit check on the tenant so that the landlord will know whether he has a good credit score. The rent goes through Speedrent, which tracks the tenant’s payment record. If he doesn’t pay up but continue staying at the home, Speedrent will talk to him. If that fails, they will get lawyers to send out a letter of demand and an eviction notice.

“Based on our statistics, most tenants would opt to leave by the stipulated date.” And if they do not, Speedrent will give their names to CTOS to be blacklisted. “So far, we haven’t had to blacklist anyone yet,” says Wong. If the landlord is the one who is problematic where the place rented out is bad with problems such as bed bugs, Speedrent will remove his listing and ban him from their app.

Wong says Speedrent which started in 2015 matches about 50 to 60 landlords with tenants each month. High-end units move slowly but those within an affordable range rental between RM1,200 to RM1,500 get taken up fast, he adds.
