Been quite busy these few days with my work. Although busy, I am quite satisfy with the jobs and projects given to me. More projects given meaning more learning opportunity. Though I am quite tie-up with all the projects, but I will always ensure I have a balance working life. Which is also another reason why I update this blog. WLE or Work Life Effective is the working culture that I want in my life. I believe no matter how busy we are, we must always ready to leave our jobs after working hour. Of course at times, I do work round the clock, but at times only and not always. I have a feeling that we can actually finished the tasks assigned to us within our working time if we have good time management. Some people might think that I am lazy or not dedicated to my job. But, I'm not. I feel that I'm quite dedicated to my jobs. It is just that I always remind myself to have a balance of working and personal life. As a matter of fact, I am always punctual to work and sometimes I start work earlier so that I can finish my tasks. I'm different compares to a lot of the employees here. Some will always try to abuse the flexibility given to us. Coming late to work, but "cabut" quite early, not coming to work at all without notifying others and take the annual leave given to us, and etc. Is this because we are Asian? I come across a lot of companies giving flexibility to their employees oversea, but not in Asian countries. I wonder whether it is true that Asian will always abuse the system. However, I'm thankful to GOD that he provide me with a job that provide flexibility in Malaysia as well, cause I'm not the kind of guy who would like to stuck with the sign-in, sign-out thing.

Why do we blog? This is the question that I asked myself when I see my younger brother blogging, who will be the co-author to this blog as well. Few months back, I did not like blogging as I did not like to express my feelings or thoughts to others. But after going thru some of the blogs, I began to realize that blogging is not only expressing ourselves, but at the same time connecting with others and share our knowledge with others. It is sort of another way to socialize with others via the Internet. I used to think bloggers are those lone rangers, geeks and those without anything to do with abundance of free time to blog. But come to think of it, if a blogger has very few activities, what is he or she gonna blog about? Some really blog for the sake of blogging. I do come across intellectual blogs, which really enlighten me. If we are stuck troubleshooting our pc, some blogs might in fact help us out. Some bloggers give step by step instruction on how to do something. Some bloggers give reviews on certain subjects, such as cars, movies, etc. Reading these blogs mean that we are able to see how others perceive on certain products, and not just based on the producer of the products. The producer will be bias, of course. While bloggers can choose to be bias as well, not all blogs will be bias. So in one way or another, when we read these blogs, we can roughly know how others feel for the products. Blogging can be fun, but at the same time it is time consuming, and to some others, blogging can be stressful. No matter how we perceive blogging, I still think it will be a good experience to blog. It can be use as a tool to help think out of box.
