Sessi Jelajah Dapur - 26 April 2012

Bila aku stress kat opis, selalunya aku akan balik sharp 5:30 (itu pun selalu terlajak jadi 6:30) and masak for dinner.

This is exactly the case for the last few days.  Dah terlalu tensi di opis, aku dah berazam nak masak for dinner, and the menu chosen was Spaghetti Bolognaise and garlic bread.  Don't get me wrong, aku rarely beli sos spaghetti ready made yang ada dijual di pasaraya, I prefer to prepare the sauce myself. 

Lepas bershopping barang nak masak, sampai aje kat rumah, terus ler singsing lengan baju dan mula memasak.

Spaghetti Bolognaise with garlic bread - that's my dinner for the day

Sesat di Putrajaya

Semalam kononnya nak buat "farewell" satay outing for one of my colleague.  Decided to do it kat R&R Dengkil.  Also decided to carpool with her coz nanti boleh tunjukkan dia jalan balik ke office rather than she sesat barat some else dalam kegelapan malam.

So, selepas makan2, decided to hit back to the office, ikut exit Putrajaya.  Lepas dah bayar toll, ingat nak buat U-turn tapi terlepas gak.  So, ended up pusing satu Putrajaya then baru lah jumpa jalan pulang....hehehe.

Actually it's a blessing in disguise, coz memang jarang pergi Putrajaya time malam.  This time round, hampir semua tempat berjaya kitaorg lalui.....termasuklah the ever famous jambatan tu.

Dari kejauhan nampak PICC, decided to stop by the road side and snapped some pics.  Memang awesome, ianya kelihatan seolah2 satu spaceship yang baru mendarat.

Sungguh awesome, kan?

Nota Kaki:  All the best to my gossip buddy, Nurul.  Moga lebih tenang and less stress di opis baru.  Nanti bila aku nk coti2 pg berjalan, aku roger hang yek...

MBA Vs Master in Accounting Forensic & Financial Criminology

This is the definition of MBA and Master in Accounting Forensic & Financial Criminology.  Both are interesting and have their own advantages/disadvantages.  So, which is the chosen one?  Hmmm.......

Definition adalah ihsan pakcik google

The Master of Business Administration (MBA or M.B.A.) is a master's degree in business administration, which attracts people from a wide range of academic disciplines. The MBA designation originated in the United States, emerging from the late 19th century as the country industrialized and companies sought out scientific approaches to management. The core courses in the MBA program are designed to introduce students to the various areas of business such as accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, operations management, etc. Students in MBA programs have the option of taking general business courses throughout the program or can select an area of concentration and focus approximately one-fourth of their studies in this subject.

Accreditation bodies exist specifically for MBA programs to ensure consistency and quality of graduate business education. Business schools in many countries offer MBA programs tailored to full-time, part-time, executive, and distance learning students, with specialized concentrations.

Forensic Accounting & Financial Criminology
Forensic accounting or financial forensics is the specialty practice area of accountancy that describes engagements that result from actual or anticipated disputes or litigation. "Forensic" means "suitable for use in a court of law", and it is to that standard and potential outcome that forensic accountants generally have to work. Forensic accountants, also referred to as forensic auditors or investigative auditors, often have to give expert evidence at the eventual trial.[1] All of the larger accounting firms, as well as many medium-sized and boutique firms, have specialist forensic accounting departments. Within these groups, there may be further sub-specializations: some forensic accountants may, for example, just specialize in insurance claims, personal injury claims, fraud, construction,[2] or royalty audits.[3]

Financial forensic engagements may fall into several categories. For examples:

* Economic damages calculations, whether suffered through tort or breach of contract;
* Post-acquisition disputes such as earnouts or breaches of warranties;
* Bankruptcy, insolvency, and reorganization;
* Securities fraud;
* Business valuation; and
* Computer forensics/e-discovery.

Forensic accountants often assist in professional negligence claims where they are assessing and commenting on the work of other professionals. Forensic accountants are also engaged in marital and family law of analyzing lifestyle for spousal support purposes, determining income available for child support and equitable distribution.

Engagements relating to criminal matters typically arise in the aftermath of fraud. They frequently involve the assessment of accounting systems and accounts presentation—in essence assessing if the numbers reflect reality.

Some forensic accountants specialize in forensic analytics which is the procurement and analysis of electronic data to reconstruct, detect, or otherwise support a claim of financial fraud. The main steps in forensic analytics are (a) data collection, (b) data preparation, (c) data analysis, and (d) reporting. For example, forensic analytics may be used to review an employee's purchasing card activity to assess whether any of the purchases were diverted or divertible for personal use.[4]

Quote For The Day

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you have to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”

Found this at my friend's status update and thought of sharing it here....

Monday Blues - 16 April 2012

Today is the first day masuk office after bercuti sekian lama.  Sengal doh......very the Monday Blues.  Fought the Monday Blues feeling and lepas tu ok lah sikit.

Office aku nie, ala2 berada di Antartica, it's freezing cold sampai naik kebas hidung ku.  And the temperature starts to really zoom down after lunch time, itu lah waktu beban puncak suhu office tiba2 turun mendadak.  And selalunya, aku akan berkelubung and kadang2 terpikir, bawak blanket pergi office pun tak pe.

Pernah dua kali, diaorg amek recording bacaan suhu kat office and guess what, the temperature at my place is 12.5 degree.  Giler kentang kan.....the lowest temperature available kat air cond ialah 16. 

So, I found a solution to this problem.  Pakai sweater, winter gloves and also winter socks....walla, baru terasa selesa dan comfortable.

My gloves - terasa nyaman sangat bila pakai...tak kebas2 lagi jejari runcing ku..

My winter socks that keeps my feet nice and comfy in the office

Sessi Jelajah Dapur - 03 April 2012

Ini memang delayed entry, like almost 2 weeks baru teringat ada buat sessi jelajah dapur on that date, itu pun masa tgh mengemas folder gambo2.

Disebabkan lately nie asyik balik lambat aje kerana kerja melambak2 (what's new), maka, by the time sampai rumah, dah tak leh fikir apa nak masak.  Maka, jadilah Sessi Jelajah Dapur yang very simple, sardine sandwich with cheezy wedges.

Wedges tu beli yang instant punya dari supermarket, the cheese lak, hasil belian dari budak kat opis.  Very simple to make the cheese, just add boiling water (sedikit demi sedikit) mengikut tahap kepekatan yang dikehendaki.  Selepas itu, pour it over the wedges yang baru digoreng dan walla, jadi ler cheesy wedges yang lagi sedapsss dari yang terdapat di KFC.

The Usual Rumblings and Mumblings

Aku bercuti merehatkan minda dari hari Selasa hingga Jumaat....heaven, I tell you..besides the tremor incident, the rest of the days were spent doing something productive like masak2, kemas rumah, jadi gardener, supir and of course my favourite activity, window shopping.

Penat gak rupanya jadi gardener yek, buat keje menebas rumput, cantas/trim pokok2 kat depan rumah nie selama setengah hari pun, dah separa mati...the next day, sakit2 satu badan, nampak sangat tak biasa buat kerja ala2 buruh kasar....hahahha.

And as always, whenever I'm at home, the small one tiba2 aje lar tak sihat, demam lar...maybe alasan nak mengikut mak ngah dia keluar berjalan2....hehehe.

Oh ya, gonna be busy on Sunday, ada tempahan buat Red Velvet Cake and cuppies, so by tomorrow morning kena pergi cari bahan2 membuat cake at my favourite store....lama rasanya tak baking, ini semua gara2 tak de mood dan tak sampai seru nak baking.  But last Wednesday ada yang mintak tolong, so, aku pun cubalah mengembalikan mood membaking itu kembali. 

Now, where is my recipe book nie?  Dah nak kena listdown all the ingredients needed so that tomorrow boleh pergi beli aje....

In case ada yang tak kenal rupa bentuk RV cake, nie aku tepekkan gambonye di bawah

Andai Ku Tahu

Imagine this, you are having a good time with your friends, doing your most favourite activity when all of sudden, you started to feel wobbly, the ground is moving, furnitures are shaking etc?  How would you feel and how would you react, knowing that something is really not right?

Itulah yang aku rasa hari nie.  Sedang aku bersenang lenang, relaks2, melalak kat karaoke dengan Neena dan anak2 dia, tiba2 serasa bumi ini bergegar, everything in the room is shaking and it lasted for at least few minutes.  Mula2 anak2 si Neena yang perasan sofa bergegar and thinking that it could be caused by the sound system.  At the same time, aku pun keluar dari bilik kerana nak ke toilet.  Tak berapa tapak aku berjalan, suddenly this one kind of feeling meresap dari kaki ku, dan terus ke kepala.....aku terpikir masa tu, maybe it was due to the fact that semalam aku makan sate kamben dan BP aku naik....balik dari toilet, aku masuk bilik and that's when baru betul2 terasa terhuyung hayang.  Segera aku keluar ke kaunter and nak tanya kat kaunter whether do they feel anything?  Pada masa yang sama, aku lihat ramai pengunjung lain pun bergegas keluar bilik....That's when I know that it is not my imagination, yes, there's tremor.

Segera masuk ke bilik semula, kitaorg mcm panik hingga tak mampu berbuat apa2 selain dari duduk dan merasai gegaran tersebut.  Aku lantas call mak aku and asked whether there's anything in the news and told her what's happening.  Mak aku dah mula panik dan mahu aku segera tinggalkan bangunan tersebut.  Semasa bercakap dgn mak aku, mata ku tak putus2 memandang ke arah ceiling, whether there's any sign of batu pecah2, retak etc.

Selepas bercakap, aku terduduk semula.....serasa seperti ajal sudah datang menjemputku dan aku tak bersedia.  Aku sempat lagi terfikir, adakah aku punyai masa utk menelefon kedua org tua ku dan meminta maaf?  And what if the building really collapse, adakah aku akan selamat dan berada di bawah runtuhan bangunan untuk berapa lama?  Can I go through this?  And one big question that was playing on my mind masa tu, what if aku mati dalam keadaan seperti itu, berada di pusat karaoke?  Aku tidak mahu ajal menjemputku dalam keadaan aku alpa dan leka dengan hiburan dunia......

Emosi ku pada masa itu bercampur baur, sedih, takut, sebak etc.  Memang menitis gak air mata tadi mengenangkan segala dosa2 yg telah ku lakukan.

Bila situasi dah settle down, kitaorg masih lagi duduk di situ, terdiam dan terpaku.  Neena memang lagi tak tenang, her other half baru aje touchdown kat bumi Acheh. So, berbalas sms dan phone dia asyik berbunyi.  I know how she feels, and especially the kids, memang panik.  Bila dah dapat bercakap dgn her other half, baru lah aku nampak dia tenang sikit.

Sampai sekarang, aku masih berfikir kejadian petang tadi.  Ya, memang berlaku gempa bumi di Sumatera, reading nya ialah 8.9 pada skala ritcher.  And this is the second time I'm experiencing tremor semasa berada di dalam bangunan tinggi.  The first one was in year 2005.  Apakah aku masih tak sedar lagi bahawa Allah dah beri ku beberapa kali peringatan akan perkara ini?  Aku terasa sungguh kerdil tadi, coz no matter how brave and strong we are, kita masih takut bila diuji Tuhan.

Ya Allah, ampunkan segala dosa2 ku selama ini, tetapkanlah hati ku untuk selalu ingat dan patuh kepada Mu dan berikanlah aku kekuatan dan ketabahan untuk melakukan perubahan sebelum ajal menjemputku....

Sessi Jelajah Dapur - Ahad 01 April 2012

So, today, atas dasar kemanusiaan dan kasihan, maka aku pun mengambil order dari sorang nie, dia mintak pulut kuning, rendang ayam dan rendang daging untuk 20 pax.  Dia juga mintak semua food yang diorder dibungkus kerana ianya akan diberi ke surau, bayar nazar katanya.

So, the whole day today was spent in kitchen, preparing the pulut kuning and rendang....dah siap masak semua, dalam pukul 6 petang baru lah mula packing makanan tu.  Now, I'm dead tired, asyik duk keluar masuk dapur aje hari nie.

Pulut sebelum dikukus...

Proses membungkus pun bermula

Individually packed

Ready for collection and distribution

Cerita Minggu ini

Finally, the big meeting is over.....teramatlah lega.  Makan tak kenyang, tidur tak lena, mandi tak basah mengenangkan benda nie.  Once the meeting is over, terus aje call contact person kitaorg kat hotel tu, and ajak lunch.  Depa yg lain makan kat ballroom, aku relaks aje enjoying my lunch at the coffee house.....

Lepas lunch, sambung lagi dengan meeting sampai kul 8:30 malam.....balik rumah cam zombie.....tak pikir apapun kecuali tido

My lunch.  Since event went smoothly without any hiccups, maka kita makan besarrr for lunch.

Jumaat, 30 March 2012:

Hari yang sungguh nyaman dan tenang dalam opis.  Still speculating on the issue yg terjadi sehari seblm nya....Apasal jadi macam tu?

Hari yang tenang utk go out and have good lunch with buddies...which we did....No doubt penat semalam belum recover but still we had good time.
