Genting 26-28 February

I am off to Genting. Objectively to prepare strategic paper on Knowledge Management. I have been involved with experts on this area for the past one year. For sure, I will having fun with these wonderful people. I consider myself as rookie in this area with some exposure during my master paper and assisting a friend of mine completing his PhD thesis. During the meeting, I will present the implementation strategy which highlight some aspect of Management and Organizational behavior as well the solutions

Knowledge Management is a new area in both theories and practical, not to mention almost non-existent write up in Culinary perspective. I believe I am in the right direction.

Happy and Prosperous CNY

Wishing all my friends and students, A Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year 2010

On TV last Tuesday

I was on TV2 last tuesday.. morning segment, preparing the sugar-less bread :)

I didnt know or let alone watch it as I was having a class that time, until a friend of mine inform me.... ghee, where is my copy of that session

Office Politics

Technically I prefer to read others's blog on politics - example like Malaysia Today or Kopitiam Abg Nan, but that is on nation politic.

Office politics, hmm... I am not interested. As for I know most of Hariri's are very professional, hardworking while accepting whatever came in their career life, me included.

I was introduce to this kind of politics since 2002 when I was requested to take the 2nd top position in a institution/company. That point is more as strategic move as I was tasked to turn-around the company which has been loss since the last 5 year.

It was a small group of 12 employee - Not much on office politics there, nevertheless I learn most of the business strategy, art of war and organizational behavior, luckily we manage to turn-around within a year and I manage to secure half-day leave to further study and whenever CNY - I will get 'big' angpow.

That did not make me an expert, but somehow I has manage to handle a case involving a particular organization, where I acted as consultant for knowledge management system.

Now as 'unofficial' adviser to my colleague, I found that human never had enough despite fat salaries and tremendous benefits given by the employer, still wanted to 'kill' a person so that he/she can hold the position.

For me, rather simple.. rezeki Allah bagi, cukup-cukupkanlah.. kalau tak cukup pergi cari project lain takpun pergi ngajar part-time. Sibuk-sibuk dengan 'position' nak buat apa, lainlah kalau kita ni bagus sangat or can bring few million ringgit worth of business to the company. Setakat menghabiskan beras aje...semua orang boleh buat
