Red Warriors win the 2010 Malaysia Cup


The Red Warriors created history tonight when they defeated Negri Sembilan in a thrilling Malaysia Cup final that had spectators on the edge of their seats the entire game.

Kelantan beat Negri Sembilan 2-1 at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil to hoist the Malaysia Cup for the first time.

The victory is celebrated by Kelantan football fans, while the ongoing Galas by-election took a back seat today as fans in the state focused on the match up.

In addition to the win, tomorrow will be a public holiday for Kelantan to celebrate the long-awaited victory and rest before resuming work on Monday.

Wow... What a history! I bet my Monday in office will surely havoc with the stories especially  from my boss himself.

No doubt instead of all the controversies, The Red Warrior are still the best!

Free Download: FreeMind Map

FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software written in Java. The recent development has turned it into high productivity tool. The operation and navigation of FreeMind is quite fast because of a one-click "fold / unfold" and "follow link" operations.

If you want to write a completely new metaphysics, why don't you use FreeMind? Or do you want to keep personal knowledge base, which is easy to manage? Why don't you try FreeMind? Do you want to prioritize, know where you are, where you've been and where you are heading? Have you tried FreeMind to keep track of all the things that are needed for that?

We use FreeMind for our office project presentation last week.

FreeMind is a convenient and nearly self explaining application. It is fun to sort ideas or develop structures with it. I would like to say it is the best real Open source mind map project

The Boiling Issue: Water charges increase in Kedah

So sad and I'm not happy with the issue at all! 

Kampung Sungai Pasir is a small village that was part of Pekan Mahang located under Majlis Perbandaran Kulim Kedah. This small village is a place where I was born, my place that i grow older, my place where my family members stay. Instead of staying in KL for more than 10 years, I planned to permanently stay at this small village one day. 

I read about the announcement few weeks ago and today I will share my stand about the issue. 

Syarikat Air Darul Aman (Sada) was formerly known as Jabatan Bekalan Air Kedah. Although the name has been changed, I still couldn't capture in my mind, what is the benefits will be gain that may benefits all the people??? I'm saying this as a part of ordinary citizen, non-educated person, a person that struggle to live, and after wearing myself into the shoes of the villages! 

I know the situation currently faced by all the villagers at my small kampung. Almost every month there will be a water supply disruption for few days and amazingly almost every important day (kenduri kendara & hari raya, there is also a disruption of a water supply. The thing became bigger when the yellowish water comes out (no filtering at all!??) when the water supply is back.   I do not know what is happening but the decision the increase the water tariff is so unfair. If you cannot give the most basic service on water supply service, don't ever dream to put your so called burden to all the villagers. 

To PAS & BN, do not put the blame on each other if you yourself both for years can't manage the issue wisely!

1st October 2010: Alor Setar
Syarikat Air Darul Aman (Sada) Chief Executive Officer Datuk Adzmi Din said despite the double-digit increases, domestic users, who make up almost 90 per cent of the company's total 506,142 account holders, would only have to fork out between RM3 and RM8 more each month for their water bills.

"Our rates are among the lowest compared with other states and we have not raised the rates since 1993.

"We are the third lowest after Terengganu and Penang," he said

Citing an example, he said consumers would only have to pay an extra 10 sen per cubic metre for the first 20 cubic metres of water. The old rate was 40 sen per cubic metre.

For domestic usage of more than 20 cubic metres up to 35 cubic metres, the rate is 90 sen per cubic metre. 

The rate for more than 35 cubic metres is RM1.30 per cubic metre, a 40-sen increase from the old rate.

Adzmi added that the new water tariffs would not be a burden to consumers.

A brilliant interview...

Some, rather most organizations reject his CV today because he has changed jobs frequently (10 in 14 years). My friend, the ˜job hopper™ (referred here as Mr. JH), does not mind it. Well he does not need to mind it at all. Having worked full-time with 10 employer companies in just 14 years gives Mr. JH the relaxing edge that most of the ˜company loyal™ employees are struggling for today. Today, Mr. JH too is laid off like some other 14-15 year experienced guys " the difference being the latter have just worked in 2-3 organizations in the same number of years. Here are the excerpts of an interview with Mr. JH:

Q: Why have you changed 10 jobs in 14 years? 
A: To get financially sound and stable before getting laid off the second time.

Q: So you knew you would be laid off in the year 2009? 
A: Well I was laid off first in the year 2002 due to the first global economic slowdown. I had not got a full-time job before January 2003 when the economy started looking up; so I had struggled for almost a year without job and with compromises.

Q: Which number of job was that? 
A: That was my third job.

Q: So from Jan 2003 to Jan 2009, in 6 years, you have changed 8 jobs to make the count as 10 jobs in 14 years?
A: I had no other option. In my first 8 years of professional life, I had worked only for 2 organizations thinking that jobs are deserved after lot of hard work and one should stay with an employer company to justify the saying employer loyalty™. But I was an idiot.

Q: Why do you say so? 
A: My salary in the first 8 years went up only marginally. I could not save enough and also, I had thought that I had a permanent™ job, so I need not worry about ˜what will I do if I lose my job™. I could never imagine losing a job because of economic slowdown and not because of my performance. That was January 2002.

Q: Can you brief on what happened between January 2003 and 2009. 
A: Well, I had learnt my lessons of being ˜company loyal™ and not ˜money earning and saving loyal™. But then you can save enough only when you earn enough. So I shifted my loyalty towards money making and saving " I changed 8 jobs in 6 years assuring all my interviewers about my stability.

Q: So you lied to your interviewers; you had already planned to change the job for which you were being interviewed on a particular day? 
A: Yes, you can change jobs only when the market is up and companies are hiring. You tell me " can I get a job now because of the slowdown? No. So one should change jobs for higher salaries only when the market is up because that is the only time when companies hire and can afford the expected salaries.

Q: What have you gained by doing such things? 
A: That's the question I was waiting for. In Jan 2003, I had a fixed salary (without variables) of say Rs. X p.a. In January 2009, my salary was 8X. So assuming my salary was Rs.3 lakh p.a. in Jan 2003, my last drawn salary in Jan 2009 was Rs.24 lakh p.a. (without variable). I never bothered about variable as I had no intention to stay for 1 year and go through the appraisal process to wait for the company to give me a hike. 

Q: So you decided on your own hike? 
A: Yes, in 2003, I could see the slowdown coming again in future like it had happened in 2001-02. Though I was not sure by when the next slowdown would come, I was pretty sure I wanted a ˜debt-free™ life before being laid off again. So I planned my hike targets on a yearly basis without waiting for the year to complete.

Q: So are you debt-free now? 
A: Yes, I earned so much by virtue of job changes for money and spent so little that today I have a loan free 2 BR flat (1200 sq.. feet) plus a loan free big car without bothering about any EMIs. I am laid off too but I do not complain at all. If I have laid off companies for money, it is OK if a company lays me off because of lack of money.

Q: Who is complaining? 
A: All those guys who are not getting a job to pay their EMIs off are complaining. They had made fun of me saying I am a job hopper and do not have any company loyalty. Now I ask them what they gained by their company loyalty; they too are laid off like me and pass comments to me " why will you bother about us, you are already debt-free. They were still in the bracket of 12-14 lakh p.a. when they were laid off.

Q: What is your advice to professionals?
A: Like Narayan Murthy had said " love your job and not your company because you never know when your company will stop loving you. In the same lines, love yourself and your family needs more than the company's needs. Companies can keep coming and going; family will always remain the same. Make money for yourself first and simultaneously make money for the company, not the other way around.

Q: What is your biggest pain point with companies? 
A: When a company does well, its CEO will address the entire company saying, ˜well done guys, it is YOUR company, keep up the hard work, I am with you. But when the slowdown happens and the company does not do so well, the same CEO will say, It is MY company and to save the company, I have to take tough decisions including asking people to go. So think about your financial stability first; when you get laid off, your kids will complain to you and not your boss.

Why we need to sleep early?

Hello my friends,
It has been a week Damaipeace not updated with new posting. Not to say that I am too busy last week, I think it's more on my unplanned schedule that make me quite kelam kabut and reached home late and tired except for yesterday. Yesterday, I mean on Friday I stepped out from my office at 4.00PM to join my company's Jamuan Hari Raya at our HQ, The Mines City. 

After few considerations (traffic jams, don't want to drive alone in the car, not wearing my brand new Hari Raya suit, and ect.) i'd decided just to drive back early. I reached Damansara Damai at 4.30 and drove straight to Tam Motorspot workshop at Prima Damansara (just nect to Damansara damai) to service my cars' front brake. Around an hour later, I'm already at home relaxing myself on a sofa with a glass of drink while watching television :)

Today, I would like to share with you an article that I received from a friend. Its all about having enough sleep. Do share with your friends as well :)


The main causes of health damages are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause

2. Not urinating in the morning.

3. Too much eating.

4. Skipping breakfast.

5. Consuming too much medication.

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.

8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We have to adopt a good daily life style and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits is very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals.


Evening 9 - 11pm: is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (de- toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in a un relaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health.

Night at 11pm - 1am: The de-toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 - 3am: de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5am: de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

Morning 5 - 7am: de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.
Morning 7 - 9am: Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9-10am rather than no meal at all. Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals.

Midnight to 4am: is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.

Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.
