A DAY IN ASYIQIN'S LIFE

Assalamualaikum.

A day in my life. I think no one bothers, tapi I just nak share lah apa I buat dalam masa sehari. It's kind of my boring daily routine which i try my best to look enjoyable.

6.30am:
I wake up at 6.30am usually. Kalau awal daripada timing tu berkemungkinan besar malam sebelum tu i tidur around 10pm, then I will wake up earlier than this. So bangun, mandi, solat, kalau rajin mengaji kejap, then siap-siap with my attire to work.



8.00am:
Awal atau lambar, I wajib alas perut dulu sebelum keluar rumah. Kalau outfit kerja dah prepare the night before, then bangun awal pulak. I'll make time to prepare my own breakfast at home. This part kalau I skip, I tell you the whole day I akan moody. Macam something incomplete, missing. Pergi kerja tu rasa moody giler.



9.00am-6.00pm:
This is my working hours. Everyday memang well occupied bila dah sampai office. Lunch break pun kadang boss cari, nak solat pun kena advance tak boleh rilek-rilek, every minutes and hours memang sangat berharga sebab aku banyak kerja. Nanti kerja pending besok lusa aku stress lagi masalah. So usually aku jarang balik sharp at 6. Mesti drag sampai 7pm, 8pm, kadang 9pm. Isnin dengan jumaat lah yang aku paling busy, stress dan balik lambat. 

8.30pm-10pm:
Timing ni memang period yang menentukan kualiti tidur I malam tu. Usually kalau i stress, I'll go for exercise. Either jogging ke, gym, swimming. Balik rumah after shower confirm terus flat dan tidur nyenyak. 



Kalau malam tu rasa tak ada mood nak exercise, I'll do some speed reading, video editing, dengar muzik, call my friends and we'll talk for hours ataupun out for coffee dengan kawan. Let say the previous week tu I was super busy, timing macam ni I'll make sure pergi grocery shopping ke, laundry ke, house cleaning ke. Depends. Tapi I'll make sure waktu ni memang well occupied jugak. Kalau tak, the next morning memang rasa macam tak ada sparks nak pergi kerja. 

11.00pm:
It's my ideal and perfect bedtime guys. I'm not someone yang suka stay back lewat malam tidur lewat sebab nanti mulalah mulut rasa nak mengunyah, fikir bukan-bukan kemudian upset tak tentu pasal, eyebag berbakul-bakul. I need enough 7-8 hours to recharge my body. Kerja office tak siap macam mana pun I will never bring my document back home. It's a discipline guys. 

That's my daily routine for weekdays. Weekend memang lain, I'll share in my another post. Unless kalau hari tu rasa stress sangat, upset sangat, sunyi sangat, then I'll change my activities. Pergi tengok wayang out of blue ke, window shopping ke, food hunting ke. Tapi overall I'm a structured and organized person. Whatever I do, I need to justify why and what's the impact or benefits to me.

RIVERSIDE, JANDA BAIK

Assalamualaikum.

Hey guys, it's been a while. Sesekali dapat update blog tu rasa macam excited sangat. Heee.

I just want to share, 2 weeks ago me and my 3 other colleagues pergi short trip mandi sungai dekat Janda Baik. Why I need to blog this is because that was my very first time pergi somewhere dengan office mate sepanjang I bekerja. Kita orang bukan satu department pun, tapi we managed to get along very well then sama-sama pergi trip yang unplanned nih. 

Itinerary kami simple sangat.

3pm: Berkumpul dekat office.
5pm: Sampai Janda Baik, Pahang.
5.30pm: Try Nasi Ayam Bakar dengan Aiskrim roti.
6pm: Mandi-manda & selfie
7.30pm: Solat jemaah dekat surau tepi sungai
8pm: Balik KL

Simple kan? Tapi seronok sangat.











Alrite, kalau korang nak try mandi dekat sini, boleh cari location "RIVERSIDE JANDA BAIK". So far area sini not bad, ada restoran nasi ayam bakar, pondok berkelah yang dibina daripada buluh, toilet 50sen, surau pun dekat. Cuma nak masuk ke sini tu lah jalan dia Masha Allah bengkang-bengkok berbukit-bukau. Tapi trip ni memang seronok lah. Haha. 

Thanks girls for the memory. Appreciate sangat!


TARTE BURIED TREASURE RAINFOREST EYESHADOW PALETTE

Assalamualaikum.

I jarang buat makeup review. But Hello! I cannot tahan lah dengan this eyeshadow palette nih, sumpah tantek giler! Sebelum ni banyak jugak beli eyeshadow palette, tapi biashe-biashe ajer bagi sis. Hahah.

lurvealoevera.blogspot.com

Memperkenalkan, TARTE BURIED TREASURE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA EYESHADOW PALETTES. Nah, panjang betul nama eyeshadow sekarang tak nak kalah tu. Hahah. To be frank aku tak tahu exactly store yang boleh jumpa brand Tarte ni kat mana, tapi aku jumpa palette hebat ni masa pergi karnival dekat Putrajaya baru ni, kiranya sales raya lah aku terbeli benda alah ni.

lurvealoevera.blogspot.com

Aku sebenarnya dah lama cari eyeshadow yang ada warna pink dengan merun ni. Sebelum ni aku suka warna natural jer untuk eyeshadow. Lepastu "ah bosan lah, nak try pulak warna lain" makanya aku terbelilah palette ni. Aku tak suka palette yang warna-warni cacar marba biru hijau kuning semua ada, membazir sebab aku tak akan pakai pun nanti. 

Jadi since Tarte Buried Treasure Rainforest Eyeshadow Palette (senafas ok =D) ni ada dua pilihan warna kegemaran aku which are natural warna tanah dengan pink and merun tadi, so ah memang in love lah benda alah ni. 

Kalau korang mencari eyeshadow palette untuk raya, try usyar online store yang jual brand ni. Seriously worth your money. Okay selamat mencuba. 


MY FIRST JOB (Part 2)

Assalamualaikum.

Sambungan kisah first job aku hari tu, kot-kot ada adik-adik yang tengah prepare nak cari kerja lepas graduate kan.

So first department aku waktu dapat first job tu adalah Undergraduate local Marketing. Since i punya degree background adalah education, maka aku try my best lah untuk dapat placement di school unit, which is the only unit dalam marketing yang bukan main KPI dia adalah sales.

Since that was my first job, to be honest I did't have any experience in marketing atau pengalaman kerja dalam bidang professional macam ni. Memula tu macam takut-takut juga sebab aku terjun ke dalam bidang yang aku tak expect dan bukan minat aku. Aku join sebab ada title 'Counselor' sahaja dalam jawatan tu, rupanya marketing. Harey betol!


Aku ingat company akan biarkan sahaja new joiner macam aku yang fresh graduate ni pepandailah cari pengalaman sendiri kan, ternyata tidak. Masa first week aku dekat department tu, they did product knowledge training almost everyday guys! Daripada zero to hero orang kata. Bukan sahaja one to one briefing session, siap ujian bertulis dan role play tu. Siang malam aku study okay untuk dapat skor paling cantik, kalau kau gagal kena re-sit for exam taw. Aku dapat 90 markah waktu tuh. Cemerlang bukan? Kata nak jadi pekerja contoh, tu yang berkobar-kobar zaman tu. Luls!

Training dah passed with flying colors, so next? Apa job description aku waktu tu?


Aku keluar outstation pergi Career Exhibition hampir setiap minggu lagi-lagi peak season. Daripada sekolah, politeknik, matrikulasi, semua aku masuk. 


Aku pergi company visits untuk cari collaboration atau agents. To be frank aku punya forte cume sekolah, part company dengan working adult ni memang aku tak tahu pape. Jadi aku follow member-member team lain pergi buat company visit. 



Selain tu, aku pergi school visits untuk buat repport dengan kaunselor-kaunselor sekolah jugak. Since aku pun ada lesen kaunselor berdaftar, so aku tak ada masalah nak masuk sekolah jumpa cikgu-cikgu kaunseling. Cuma kengkadang ada jugak cikgu kaunseling yang annoying dengan kehadiran marketers dari IPTS ni. Bagi dia orang, IPTS banyak menipu. 

Tidak dinafikanlah memang banyak kes IPTS tipu students dan parents, tapi aku punya kerja time ni bukanlah desak memana cikgu untuk bagi student kat kami. Apa aku buat adalah discussed what kind of events yang cikgu-cikgu nak buat di kampus kami. Campus visit? Motivational talk? Bengkel? Itu part aku. 


Untuk aku lebih tahu tentang marketing, aku pun join team lain untuk buat preview session di company kami juga. Kami invite adults yang berminat nak sambung belajar atau jadi agents, then kita buat lah presentation, discussion and tea break sekali. Bila deal dengan working adults ni, aku banyak belajar part service instead of product. 


Besides that, aku pun pergi event-event sekolah untuk kutips leads ke atau bagi career talk. Seronok sebenarnya. Confident level aku masa ni memang 100% lah cerita dia. Hahaha. Record paling power aku sepanjang kutip leads ni adalah waktu aku masuk Politeknik Shah Pekan Pahang tahun 2018, di mana aku stay 3 jam je dekat booth tapi aku berjaya kutip 400 data students. Memang proud giler lah balik outstation tu bila nak present kat boss. Haaa.



Alrite, this one kami jarang-jarang buat sebenarnya. Ini adalah Online Career Test di mana hanya Registered Counselor sahaja yang boleh conduct sesi ini. Career test yang aku belajar zaman buat degree dulu macam Ujian Minat Kerjaya Sidek (IMKS), Self Directed Search (SDS), Inventori Personaliti Sidek (IPS) semua kami implement ke dalam online system. After student jawab test tu, tak payah sesusah kaunselor nak buat manual marking. Sistem akan keluar berapa skor student, then kami akan start kaunseling kerjaya atau bimbingan kerjaya bersama parents. 


Aku stay dalam Marketing tak lama, 6 bulan sahaja. Waktu tu matlamat aku cuma 2, nak performed dan lepas tempoh probabtion. Soal kenaikan gaji tu aku tolak tepi dulu sebab aku fresh graduate, aku tak boleh expect untuk kenaikan gaji dalam tempoh 6 bulan. Apa aku nak adalah benefits yang company bagi bila aku dah jadi confirmed staff (macam annual leaves, medical card etc). Kemudian aku aim nak cantikkan resume aku untuk jump company dalam masa yang sama aku nak bina network dalam industri ni since aku memang minat education background.

Within 6 months, aku berjaya collect 25 enrollments, joined 5 education fairs, collect 10,000 data, pergi 60 buah sekolah for school visits, bagi motivational and career talk, outstation ke JB, Perak, Terengganu, Pahang, Pineng. 

Did i passed my probation period?
The answer is........... NO.

MY FIRST JOB (Part 1)

Assalamualaikum.

Hari ni aku rasa burnout sangat, mungkin sebab over work kot. Keluar rumah pukul 8.30am, balik kerja sampai rumah pun dah 8.00pm. Dari Putrajaya travel ke Petaling Jaya setiap hari. Weekend pun kerja lagi, nonstop back to back dah berapa minggu. So aku rasa nak share something personal kat blog.

Dah setahun 4 bulan aku kerja dekat this one company ni, ni kira first permanent job aku lepas graduate lah. So far banyak lah suka duka bahagia dan lara sepanjang hidup bekerjaya ni. Nampak kat instagram life aku macam best, tapi kau duduk tempat aku dulu tengok, hidup bekerja ni macam bercinta jugak, ada pasang surut dia.

Alrite, kalau korang sekarang ni tengah tanam anggur, atau baru grad mana-mana uni dan sedang mencari kerja, bolehlah amik iktibar daripada pengalaman aku ni.

Masa baru lepas konvo tu aku start apply job dekat Jobstreet, apply dalam 10-15 jobs macam tu, tetiba within 1 week aku received about 4-5 interview kerja. Aku cuma pilih 2 jer masa tu. Alhamdulillah nak dijadikan rezeki, aku dapatlah kerja dekat company sekarang ni.

Masa interview tu macam-macam soalan ditanya,

"Boleh kerja weekend?"
"Kalau kena outstation awak sanggup?"
"Boleh drive kereta manual?"
"Ada transport sendiri?"
"Boleh cakap bahasa Inggeris?"

2x jugak lah datang interview dekat company ni, sampailah HR call, "Tahniah ye cik, cik dapat kerja sebagai Education Counselor di company kami ye." Gembira tahap rasa nak terjun tasik Putrajaya acah free dive. Hahahaha.

Tapi banyak benda sebenarnya aku tak berkenan dengan company ni, dia kata kerja kaunselor, tapi tengok agreement rupanya kerja marketing. Dah kenapa panggil kaunselor?? Dah lah Offer letter kena datang ambil sendiri kat company, gigih lah aku datang dari Putrajaya ke PJ time tu. Lepas tu HR cakap lapor diri on 8th December 2017, tetiba ubah tarikh, lepas tu ubah lagi. Elok-elok cakap boleh masuk 2017, tetiba dia cakap kena lapor diri 2 Jan 2018 pulak. Time tu aku macam nak giveup dah lah, lepas tu kawan aku cakap masuk dulu, cari pengalaman kerja, cukup 6 bulan cabut lah.

Aku pun terima nasihat dia.

Maka secara rasminya pada 2hb Januari 2018, aku mula bergelar sebagai wanita bekerjaya.

BERSAMBUNG..............

PANTAI TELUK CEMPEDAK

Assalamualaikum.

This year i have this one mission keeps running in my head, which is beach hunting. Even though pantai tu i dah pernah pergi, i akan repeat balik untuk masukkan dalam check list. So this time around i went for a short vacation with mum and dad to Pantai Teluk Cempedak.

The weather that day was hot and sunny. We arrived around 2pm, then i brought my lil brother for a walk and yeah of course we did it purposely in order to give mum and dad space for them to have a nice date. Hahaha.

MY FIRST DAY AT WORK FOR 2019

My phone was ringing. Oh! It's 7.30am already.

I woke up early today and realized that it's 2nd January 2019 already. I slept well last night and i felt so energetic. I made myself a cup of hot green tea with potato bread for breakfast while listening to Era.fm 2 hours before off to work. 

' What gonna happen today?'

' Is my boss in a good mood today?'

I was on leave for the past 15 days and lots of things came up to my mind. I was so worried for thing that has not happened yet. It was totally a mess. 
The moment i dropped my handbag on my work desk, my boss was calling me for a short new year meeting.

" The first thing you must learn today is to have endurance to stand the pressure. Now second thing is i want you to learn about emotional maturity, it's about how well you deal with the pain. And the last thing is..."

While he was pouring a cup of hot tea on his table... He continued...

" you must organize your job. Utilize everything, planner, filling and notebook. This year i want you to aim for salary increment. It will be rewarded to staff who perform on June and December. I expect you to get your increment to the maximum level  based on your qualification. "



I walked out from his room and received three things from my boss this morning.
A planner, a notebook, and his trust

WHEN IT COMES TO PEKASAM IKAN PATIN...

I'm a Johorean. Well to be exact, i'm a partially Johorean. I was born in Johor, and grown up in Pahang. Even though i don't know how to sing lagu negeri Johor, but i can eat well Tempe and Pisang Goreng with sambal kicap just like a local. Will that make me look like a better version of Johorean? Hey my IC clearly stated that i'm a Johorean okay? Lol! I sound desperate. 

My family has been staying in Pahang for about 18 years already. We don't really converse in Pahang ascent as mum was born in Melaka while me and my brothers were born in Johor. Everyone is trying to preserve their own uniqueness. So the only one left is dad. Yes, he's originally made in Pahang. You can see a stamp with Patin's logo on his face. Haha, joking!

18 years, i guess that's enough time to make the other half me as a Pahangite. Oh, this half me is better because i know how to sing lagu negeri Pahang and eat Gulai Tempoyak Patin, but not their ascent as we don't practice that at home.

I love food. And I like everything that has ikan Patin. I'm a good eater (and my dream is to become a JJCM host without getting fat). You name it anything with ikan Patin.

Gulai tempoyak ikan Patin.

Pais ikan Patin.

Ikan Patin bakar.

Sambal ikan Patin.

Gulai masam ikan Patin.

Ikan Patin goreng kunyit.

And... My favourite one is...

PEKASAM IKAN PATIN!

You can offer me an expensive meal from a fancy restaurant. I'll enjoy it. But when it comes to pekasam ikan patin... Sorry guys, you'll see how excited i am. It's just a simple lauk kampung, but i damn love it and can even eat 2 plates of rice with this. It makes me addicted and craving!

Forget about pasta!

Forget about Kyochon!

Forget about chicken dumplings!

And forget about Tony Romas!

Oh! Hate to admit this, but can you see a Patin's stamp on my face now? 


MY FIRST SUMMON

I got my motorbike license on 2010 and car license on 2017. Within these 9 years, i never received any traffic summon until one day i saw a piece of paper on my bike.

Well, it's from Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya, which is my very first summon in my entire life. Gosh! I've tried to hide it from mum as i know she'll be asking me this and that until the day mum phoned me.

' Did you get summoned last week?'

' Err....' i was trying to lie, but then...

' I received a red letter with your name.'

I admit i did break a few rules before. 

I drove my dad's car over the speed limit but luckily i saw the AES symbol in the waze and managed to pass it without being caught.

I did simply parked my bike and cars if i couldn't find the parking. 

I even being caught by JPJ for two times too. The first time was i forgot to renew my motorbike's roadtax (it expired on June 2016 but i told the officer i thought the date was June 2017, how lame!). While the next round i drove my housemate from Putrajaya to The Mines but she didn't wear helmet that time. When the JPJ officer asked me, i told him that i picked my housemate from the nearby KTM station, because that's her first time coming to The Mines, i offered her a drive (actually i made up this story to avoid from summon and it worked eventually. Haha) 

I still remembered how the JPJ officer yelled at me, but everytime i was caught, i tried to talk to them nicely and convinced them i won't do that again next time. So that's how my license is still clear without any summon for 9 years.

I guess because i was damn confident and full of myself and i told many lies before, this summon from MBPJ was a big hit for me. Alrite sir, lesson learnt. 😣 Please don't put me into the jail.
