Kenapa

1 perkataan yang sering kali kita sebut. Dan selalu disambung dengan cadangan. No doubt. Sometimes orang luar memang nampak daripada sudut yang kita berbeza. Mari kita narrow down our scope untuk soal kerjaya.

Kenapa kerja sebagai dot dot dot…
Kenapa kerja di dot dot dot…
Kenapa tak minta kerja di dot dot dot…
Kenapa tak cari pengalaman dulu…

“Kenapa… kau pura-pura tak tahu ya..” - sedutan cerita Labu Labi.

Semua inginkan yang terbaik. Tapi tak semua berusaha yang terbaik. Kalau dah berusaha, kita berserah pada takdir. Di sini ramai yang terlepas pandang. TAKDIR.

Just to share my experience…
Right after SPM, I further my study in a bachelor degree programs. Masa final year, semua kena buat industrial training. During my time, most of company tak bagi elaun. Kalau ada yang bagi pun yang paling tinggi RM500 (memang jarang lah). I did applied my internship in maaaaaany places. Masa tu bukan ada kereta, or motor, or duit. Ditakdirkan tak dapat any placement in mana-mana tempat. Then i applied jugak intern di IT support dept in campus. Alhamdulillah. Allah permudahkan semua. Jadi intern la lat situ. Dapat la elaun RM160. Pergi ‘keje’ jalan kaki je - with high heels dalam beg. Budak U… dapat task.. Happy sangat! memang all out buat programming. ASP.Net and SQL server. Tengah-tengah internship, terpaksa keluar dari apartment lebih awal sebab ada event. Nasib la time tu ada kerani sambilan yang sama office sewa di pusat latihan dalam area yang sama jugak. So, boleh la menyewa kat situ. 

Habis intern terus sambung Masters degree sambil jadi RA. Terus stay situ sampai habis masters. Right after habis tempoh masters n RA, i went back to penang and i heard they are no longer bagi sewa bilik tu untuk orang luar. 

I spent 1 year and half in my hometown. Doing thesis write-up, initiating a small business (SHOL), taking care of my parents, my late grandpa. I have spent my time and love for them. i even applied some jobs over there tak kesah the position including kerani. Trust me… i have got ZERO reply! Interview ada 1 tapi terus senyap. Then I got a job offer from my former boss (She’s now dah naik jawatan). 


02 May 2012 - my life has changed. I have a job. My salary is good. I am working with a well known higher level education institution. i have my own office (room). My life gets better. Alhamdulillah. There are few times people asked me… kenapa tak masuk industry? get the pengalaman. I admit memang pengalaman sangat penting. no doubt. Tapi bila Yang Maha Mengetahui tidak mengizinkan, apalah daya si manusia kerdil serba lemah ini untuk melawan takdir. 

He knows my capability.
He knows which area suits me.
He knows me better.
Percaya pada diri sendiri.

L'Occitane < How to Pronounce this?

Last weekend, I went to Penang from KLIA. Then I said to my brother I want to see how much L'Occitane products around free duty area. I pronounce L'Occitane as Lo-ki-tan. Then he laughed at me and said it is Loc-si-tain. We were debating few times and my justification was it is French. French dont pronounce every character written there.
On the next day, I was looking for How to pronounce L'Occitane over the internet. Then I have found this video on Youtube. It wasnt just me and my brother who are confuse on how to pronounce this.. people in US also! Please watch the following video...


We say... LOX-EE-TAN...

Lenovo The New X1 Carbon featuring Intel® Core™ i7 processor

While browsing on Twitter this morning, I have found this advertisement from Lenovo. It is about their new Ultrabook. What attracts me at the first place is their statement.. ".. world's lightest 14" ultrabook". 

Then I take a look into the link. It shows the weight of this ultrabook starts at 1.28kg. When I look into the thickness, I think Macbook Air is thinner than what Lenovo's offer. 

I search the basic specification of Macbook Air on Google then i came into the following analysis and conclusion…

  Lenovo The New X1 Carbon featuring Intel® Core™ i7 processor Apple MacBook Air (11-inch, 2013) Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, 2013)
Weight 1.28kg 1.08kg 1.34kg
Size 14” 11” 13”

Information on Macbook Air weight is from http://www.theverge.com/

Yes, Lenovo maybe correct on their statement says it is a lightest ultrabook in the world… only for 14” league.

pthread and C program in Linux (Basic)

This example is suitable for those who are very new to pthread in C in Linux. You will learn on how to use pthread in C program. There is an additional code to be included during compiling the source code.

REQUIREMENT

  1. Linux Machine
  2. gcc
  3. pthread header file

Pthread header file is a standard file. You can just download from the internet from any sources available. (the file name is usually pthread.h)

STEPS

create a new directory, pthreadProgram

mkdir pthreadProgram

Go into the directory that you have created.

cd pthreadProgram

Place your downloaded pthread header file (pthread.h) into this directory.

now, create a new c file

vi tprog1.c

Write down the following codes:

//Program Name: tprog1
//PThread
#include <pthread.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#define NUM_THREADS 5
void *PrintHello(void *threadid)
{
    long tid;
    tid = (long)threadid;
    printf("Hello World! It's me, thread #%ld!\n", tid);
    pthread_exit(NULL);
}
int main (int argc, char *argv[])
{
    pthread_t threads[NUM_THREADS];
    int rc;
    long t;
    for(t=0; t<NUM_THREADS; t++){
        printf("In main: creating thread %ld\n", t);
        rc = pthread_create(&threads[t], NULL, PrintHello, (void *)t);
        if (rc){
            printf("ERROR; return code from pthread_create() is %d\n", rc);
           
        }
    }
    /* Last thing that main() should do */
    pthread_exit(NULL);
}

Done with writing the source code.

Press Esc

Then :wq [write and quit vi tool]

In this example, we have fix the number of threads to be 5. You can adjust the

To compile, you can do this in many ways. For this time, we are going to use direct compilation method.

gcc -pthread tprog1.c -o tprog1

Note that you need to include “-pthread” option during compiling the program.

If there is no error, you may now execute your program

./tprog1

"EH awak berisi la sekarang ni.."

"EH awak berisi la sekarang ni.." - X

Oh I wish I can reduce these fats by just pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL or Eraser tool in Photoshop. I can be multibillionaire if manage to do and sell a tool macam tu.

Well.. everyone wants a perfect body. So do I. I want my weight to be as the same as during my report duty last year. Very slim and nice body shape.

Yes I admit my weight is much more increased compared to last year.. after convo to be specific.

During 2011-2012 (when dealing with masters and being a mommy-daddy's PA), i didnt exercise at all. But i managed to reduce my weight. Tak ada benda lain nak fikir, body pun senang hati and bahagia dapat perhatian. I was healthy! very healthy! I have very less toxic inside my body. (I know from detox patch)


Now, my with a lot of workloads (not complaining because i love my job), this body seems rebel. It wants more attention. And it keeps on growing and expanding. Owh my dear. Susah hati lah. Sapa kata tak susah hati. Tapi bila sibuk kurang la susah hati tu. And i think my body is developing the fats to protect me from kesejukan kutub utara 8 jam sehari tu. HA macam polar bear.


But when I am thinking back... what ever it is... Alhamdulillah now I have rezeki. I managed to get my meals everyday. Pernah, i was bising about fats here and there, and one day when i get too busy, i dont have time to eat, i feel really bad. not rasa bad because of tak makan. but it seems like Allah is 'punishing' me for whining about this fat and rezeki that he gave to me every single day. During that day, I came to the office early in the morning, attending the meetings, classes until 6pm. i eat nothing except consuming some cups of green tea. that's it!

But of coz it does not mean I can take this problem easily. For those yang sangat concern about my weight, THANK YOU for your concern. That means I am visible to you and you have time to think about me! That is so sweet! FYI, I am also realised about this matter. I am working to reduce it. InshaAllah, kalau diizinkan Allah, mudah la urusan nak kuruskan badan ni dan kekal sihat. Doakan. Kita mampu merancang n buat, yang izinkan tu Allah. Buatlah macam mana pun kalau Allah tak izin, tak makan 100 hari pun tak kurus jugak. Doakan.

p.s: I dont need any advertisement or approach especially pasal Herbalife or Alphalipid or Shaklee. Thank you.

"i did one good thing pagi ni... rasa happy"

Ini la rasa beza bila selalu tak buat, kadang-kadang buat. Bila selalu buat, dah jadi macam rutin or dianggap sebagai tanggung jawab. tapi bila jarang-jarang buat, dapatla rasa kelainan kemanisan dalam hidup.

Macam tu la jugak bila kerja dalam bidang yang memberi servis.

Bila selalu senyum dengan pelanggan, they will feel okay biasa la orang senyum. Tapi once kita macam, people will talk about it.

Bila selalu muka kelat, sesekali senyum, then orang akan cakap jugak... Puji Puji Puji... sebab benda lain daripada selalu.

Padahal hakikatnya always kena senyum.

Same goes antara kita dengan family. Kadang-kadang hati ni jahat jugak kena bisikan syaitan. Family la orang yang kita spend more time dalam hidup. And bila kita spend more time, kita nampak la flaw here and there. We see our neighbour... terdetik dalam hati,

"bahagianya mereka" 

"ada kereta besar" 

"ada rumah besar" 

and etc... 

We want a parents macam tu jugak. But we didnt live in that family. We cannot see the flaw yang dilindungi oleh tembok batu yang tak ada orang lain pun tahu kecuali family jiran tersebut.

Lumrah hidup sebagai manusia. Bila sentiasa ada, take for granted. Nampak yang salah saja. Bila dah ditarik nikmat tu, baru nak hargai.

Lihat sekeliling...

Lihat keluarga...

Lihat kejiranan...

Lihat daerah...

Lihat negeri...

Lihat negara...

Muhasabah diri.
