• 18

    Covid-19, politics, slow economy… Yes, we are still looking to hire people for our company. One interesting question asked by some candidates whom contacted us through email, “Just about 18 years old PR company,” “Started in 2002, wait, how many years old is your company?” As you can see, we are taking our time in hiring the right candidates. Our industry is highly competitive and ever changing. Team members who lack the desired to learn and enhance their skills, generally would not last long in our company, more so the industry.

  • Food haven, Subang Jaya

    Julia met her biological mother during Chinese New Year, and on the way home, we went over to Mei Sek Subang Jaya for brunch. Mei Sek is always heavily patronised with no table available. And, no one is there to direct the traffic for seats. So you are on your own. However, being Malaysian, we will always ask politely, “Can we share the table with you?” A nice family of three offered us the seats. They asked if I am Japanese or Korean, I said, “Chinese,” “Oh, you from Singapore?” she asked. “Malaysian Chinese, born here.” I smiled. That was how the conversation started with then the family told us…

  • I wish I could explore more.

    I took a train with no particular direction, as I had about an hour to spare. Instead of the regular places that I would walk to, explore, I decided to randomly hop on a train, and explore the places which I could see and visit, in that one hour. So I came off the station at PPR Kampung Muhibbah. BTW, PPR stands for Program Perumahan Rakyat. From what I remember, when my father enquired with the city council about renting a unit when we were about to be chased out by the land lord at our old flat, due to my parents unable to pay the monthly rent. I overheard…

  • I joined #LuBikin stool stringing workshop by Kedai Bikin

    I love to learn new things. I followed #Musotree on Instagram, as well as Kerol, the owner of the travel lifestyle magazine, and through the algorithm of Instagram (and Facebook), I also discovered Kedai Bikin. Saw it’s workshop series 02 – LU BIKIN SENDIRI, stringing workshop, and signed up, for RM325 per session. Before we get into the stringing workshop, we have similar string furnitures at my family flat, for some years. I think the plastic string is bouncy to sit on, and of course to sleep on with the lazy chair design. I also remember my grandparents houses in Ipoh & Bukit Mertajam also had string furnitures, with my…

  • Leaf-ing

    Participated in special preview of Nissan LEAF for Electric Vehicles Club Malaysia two weeks back. I attended due to my curiosity of the electric car, wanted to know the practicality as well as feasibility. I enjoyed the session hosted by Edaran Tan Chong Motors team as well as meeting people who are the experts of electric cars. I have chatted with many in the group, it is good to meet the people in person. Also, I know very little about electric cars.  So, this post here, are my opinions about LEAF. 1) I do not like Nissan, neither Tan Chong, though I am also a Tan myself, I would not tell you…

  • Extending the amazing partnership

    Kaspersky, a global cybersecurity company, and INTERPOL have signed a new five-year agreement to reinforce their collaboration in the fight against cybercrime around the world. This is the second agreement between the two parties following the first signed in 2014.  On July 3, Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky, and Tim Morris, Executive Director of Police Service at INTERPOL, signed a contribution agreement under which Kaspersky will provide human resources support, training, and threat intelligence data on the latest cybercriminal activities to INTERPOL, strengthening the organization’s cyberthreat hunting capabilities.

  • Surprising Kuala Pilah

    We did an impromptu visit to Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan on the first day of Raya festive season, which was a major public holiday in Malaysia. A bit about Kuala Pilah. It is about 25km more or less depending where you destined to reach from Seremban. The journey was really pleasant though we were caught in a massive traffic jam, as many were heading to Kuala Pilah for Raya visits. Well, it added about 45 minutes extra to our drive, so took us about 1.5 hours from Port Dickson to reach the town. The road condition is really good, with some hilly parts, the local government has built wider roads…
