Your Are Much More Than Your “Job

“Your skills, talents and expertise are everywhere.”

At work, it’s easy for your valuable skills and knowledge to shine. But, the truth is, your abilities and expertise reach beyond your work.

Your emotional, intellectual, social and organizational skills are just as valuable as your work-related skills. These are skills and talents developed along the rough road of life. Don’t discount them. Cherish and nourish these skills; you’ll gain a stronger sense of balance among all the demands of your day.

Remember, happiness and satisfaction surround you when your wisdom is treasured, whether it’s work related or not.

Today’s Affirmation: I treasure all the wisdom I have to offer


Is this sabotaging your success?

“Is laziness holding you back?”

Now, I’m not insinuating that you’re lazy – just by reading this you’re far from it. But think for a moment how your success would be affected if you were more energetic …if moments of tiredness, fatigue, low energy, and low motivation weren’t part of your daily life.

Would you be more successful? How would your life change?

When you look around, it appears that those most successful women seem to have not only supreme focus, but they also seem to have found a way to beat the “couch potato” gene in all of us. They have retired their excuses and adopted a “do it now” attitude.

There are many ways you can enhance your life by simply “not being lazy.” Take some time today to identify some of those ways in your own life.

Once you do, you can put the “lazies” behind you and look forward to active and energetic days ahead.

Today’s Affirmation: The “lazies” are in the past and I’m feeling energized.


Do You Underestimate Your Competence and Potential? Why?

“Never underestimate yourself.”

Many people put themselves down, by pointing out their inability’s, inadequacies and weaknesses. They underestimate their capabilities, competence and potential. Unfortunately, this is especially true for women.

Does this ring true with you? Take a closer look at yourself and tune into what you say and do. Vow to never, ever underestimate yourself or limit what you can achieve. You are a woman with huge amounts of talent and skill, screaming to be seen and heard!

Instead of thinking in terms of what you “can’t” do, think in terms of what you “can” do. This will let your talents shine!

Remember, you have the ability. You’re perfectly adequate. You possess limitless potential, because you’re you!

Today’s Affirmation: I possess the ability to do ANYTHING!

Penang Trip- Day 2

We had our breakfast at Lemongrass Restaurant at the 2nd floor of the hotel, since my cousin is going to the Marathon. Most of the guests who stay in the hotel was here for marathon as well…and mostly chinese, you can even see any handsome fellow around..haha!!!  The foods was not really good.


After my cousin came back from her run, we going to Ayer Item – Jalan Pasar to have ‘Asam Laksa’,  famous food at the area, near Kek Lok Si Temple and Penang Hill. The stall is right beside the small market place but it can accommodate groups of visitors and tourists arriving in bus loads visiting the nearby Kek Lok Si Temple. A bowl of sourish sweet assam laksa with a dash of bunga kantan (ginger flower bud) and spicy hot chili will bring a great lip- smacking feeling. Every one love it !!!.


After buying some biscuits for family and friend, we drive to Penang Hill but the huge crowds  at the entrance at the ticket counter. We decided to drive off and the weather is cloudy and is started to rain all the way back. We round the town, we wanted to go Upside down museum , but the crowded too, we heading to 3D Art Museum instead . Even though the place was pack but we still be able to took a lot of photos. This museum house have 45 piece of artworks featuring 3S Trick Art, a technique that transforms 2 dimensional painting into 3 dimensional images. We were there almost 3 hours. Visitors make their way through the ground floor and then continue up the stairs to the first floor. The journey takes them through scenes in Penang, and then continue on to more fantastic and outlandish terrain. The entrance fees for adults was RM25 per person and those who was Mykad Holder was RM15 per person.


Is still raining when we going back to hotel to rest before going for our dinner lately. My niece wanted to go “The Voice Café” but the wave could not bring us to the place that we wanted. We decide to drive to Gurney Plaza. Since is still raining we could go to those hawkers stalls along Gurney Drive. You can find a lot of delicious and famous foods around the area. We ending up to have our dinner at Kopitam…the foods is not as good as in the hawker stalls.
