“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” ~by Og Mandino

Last Day for Miss Yeo with TLMS fellows

It’s time for our MD, Yamada san to hand over the wrapped gift to Miss Yeo in his office. It contains all sweet little things and words from TLMS to her.
She was leafing through the card with Pauline and my partner after the little hand-over ceremony. I could feel that Miss Yeo was so touched by all the sincere hearty wordings and pictures on the card. Just that she kept herself in well emotional control. Otherwise, she could have burst into tears, I think.

When farewell lunch...

Lastly...Miss Yeo, thank you for your great contribution and support to TDK group from the beginning till the last day you leave. We appreciate them! We wish you the very best in your next career and good luck with your next endeavours! Do come back and visit us whenever you miss us, Adios!

Wrapped the Gift

Everybody was so impressed when we showed them the farewell card this morning. Look at what they said…

“It’s awesome! How can you make it?!”

“Great job!!”

“So cute!”

“You both are so creative!!”

“You must have to make one for me too when I leave someday…”

“Me too. I can offer you a budget so long as you produce one for me. ” (Jen: Ha-ha~ this guy must be crazy. Kekeke.)

“The wordings are funny! It’s a bundle of humor!”

“I love the cartoon. They are so amused!”

Look. We were bathing in everyone’s praising and admiration now.

Praise can be a fine tonic and this is how it was. Our hard work is well paid off! We are indeed thrilled to bits with what we received!! Ha.

Making A Farewell Gift for AT Yeo

“DONE!” I can’t help to cry out. Phew~

It’s such a great relief that we have accomplished the unique plus lovely ever handmade farewell gift for AT Yeo who is going to leave TDK-Lambda (M) very soon. She will be staying until this coming Friday. So, honestly we had got no much time left since my partner suddenly came out an idea of making the card for her on last Wednesday.

Tell you what; I was getting really surprised when I was first informed by my partner afterwards that she didn’t have any single experience in making the handmade product. She didn’t know DIY at all as though an absolutely plain paper which is waiting for other to paint on.

Oh my god! For a moment, I thought I would have to do the entire thing alone. Luckily, my partner didn’t give up on herself even though she found that it’s a difficult task to get on. I knew she was depressed, as well as me. I knew the pressure very well especially one is first getting on something that he or she has never got on before. So, I kept motivating and giving her loads of encouragement.

Collecting the name list, booking the table, ordering the dishes, and so on. We worked together to accomplish them. The pressure started to become obvious and greater especially when we needed the cooperative from all TLMS folks.

The issue began to come up when we invited them for the photo session. Most of them were very nice and cooperative except a senior member whom had been making some noise to our request. He was so annoyed about all the stuff, as expected. He argued that this was merely a normal and couldn’t be simple farewell for a colleague and we shouldn’t have to make it so huge and grand like this. He thought we should make it as simple as possible. That’s it. Then, he walked away before the photo session started. For God’s sake! All we could do is be polite and pleasant for the rest of the session. We didn’t want to take in any crappy words from a bloody stubborn cow that easily got jealous of others. Well, forget about this bit!

After browsing and purchasing all material we needed, I invited my partner to come over to my place in the weekend in order to discuss and work together on the card we promised. I mainly took charge of design and drawing part while she concentrated on writing out the others’ message for AT Yeo in some sort of amused form. She has the talent in that, in frank!

I couldn’t help myself but kept laughing after reading what she wrote on the card. I can tell you that my partner has really good humorous sense and all those she wrote are so hilarious. Ha. Well done, gal!!

Besides, I also want to thank my sis and my bro here. Both of them have been very helpful by lending me a hand during the task. My sis is the one who sketched out all the portrait of others in cartoon form. She is so clever, isn’t she? By the way, congrats sis!! For getting the offer letter from MLNG!!! This is really a great thing to celebrate!! Yippee!!

Again, thanks everyone for the hard work!!! This is also dedicated to my partner too!! Bravo, all my dearest!!

A Few Hundreds Turned Into Bubbles

I just settle the case this afternoon. My hubby was along with me.

I met a minor car accident just about two days ago halfway to the factory in the morning. It happened right in front of the roundabout near the Senai Airport. I thought the Wira which was turning left about to proceed in to the roundabout, I was behind it. So instinctively I pushed the pedal to get my baby car to move forward as well. Meantime, I turned my sight to the right to survey if any chance to get into the roundabout later.

Who know? The Wira stopped abruptly in front again after a few strides. Probably there were too many cars running by and she hadn’t felt to continue. But it was too late when I realized it – my baby car had kissed the Wira ass. Oh my god. I was so nervous when that moment because this was my first time crashed other people’s car after 4 years driving. I quickly got down from the car to make an apology and offer paying her the compensation.

Luckily the damage was not so serious – my front lamp at left was pushed inward a little bit as the frame was bent in while the bumper at the back of that Wira was slightly broken. I sent my car to the workshop on the same day to get the frame and lamp adjusted. RM40 was gone after that.

Then, I met with the Wira lady driver again this afternoon as committed over the phone. She brought me to the workshop her recommended and negotiated for the expenses. The bumper surely needs to be replaced and repainted afterwards. All and all had finally cost me RM270 to settle. *Heartache*
