1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
(Read from chapter 1 to 13 to understand Paul's message on "faith, hope and love")

My dream phone

As I was browsing through the internet a while ago, it suddently cross my mind that I have forgotten to blog this down. My dream phone.....

Sony Ericsson K550i. Why I choose this phone? First of all, I would like to have a camera phone. Seconly, I think Sony Ericsson is a pretty good choice because they come together with the famous Sony Cyber Shot capabilities (though not as great as the real camera but still sufficient). Thirdly, I like the design especially with the colour white.

Although the technology of implementing cameras on phone has been available for some time now, believe it or not I haven't use or own any of those. Call me back dated as you may, I don't see it as a need or necessity before this because we can always buy a digital camera to take pictures. But when have I started to change my mind? Since I started to blog of course!

I still can't hardly believe that I someday would join the blogging community. Don't know how long I will last also.... Besides, who would be bringing camera all the time everywhere you go? As an option, it's not that convinient to be bringing your camera everywhere with you. Ok, back to talking about my facination on this camera phone. This model K550i is not the newest or latest of the K-series as of now. It's not that old either. But I choose to have this model because, to me a 2 megapixel camera phone is sufficient enough for me to freely take pictures to share it here besides capturing those important moments as a reminder for myself or for future use etc.

As for now, I haven't purchase it yet. Still waiting for the price to drop further down before I really decides to buy it. Yep! I admit, I am that poor... hehehe....

BEWARE: Policeman Identification Card

The bellow message is quoted from an e-mail that I received some time ago. As an information and reminder to everyone, I am posting it here.

Below is the real policeman ID:

Ladies, be alert. It is happening in Penang !!
I used to receive forwarded emails regarding incidents of being 'disturbed' by a fake policeman but I don't really believe that until i met one last saturday.

It was 8.30am when I was driving at Jln Ayer Itam. I noticed a motorbike following me closely. Of course I didnt suspect anything bcos that is the main road to town. However, at the Mobil petrol station, b4 SRJK Shang Wu, I turned left to Tmn Lumba Kuda & he followed. This time he was riding the motorbike on my right & took out his handcuff and kept saying "Saya polis".
I ignored him.

Then at the tmn lumba kuda housing area he overtook my car & stopped his motorbike infront on me. I stopped & waited till he got down from his bike then I drove off again. Unfortunately, we met again at the tuffclub traffic light. This time, he kept knocking at my window and asking me to co me out from my car. He also showed me a so called police ID card without photo or logo.

I'm very sure that he is not a genuine policeman. Even if he is a real one, and if I did break any traffic rules, he can just send me a summon without needing me to get down from my car. So, I decided go drive to police station. He followed me till a few hundreds metre b4 I turned to the police station.

He is a medium size Malay guy, abt 165-170cm height. Riding Modenas Kriss 100, PGN 74.

p/s: A REAL policeman ID card is light yellow in color with Logo & the word "polis diraja malaysia " in front. At the back, there will be a passport size photo, name & matriks number.

Hope this thing wont happen again and wont happen to any of you as well..

~*Seducing Mr. Perfect*~

Haha...look. Is he handsome or not? He's like my heartthrob now, just like Rain after watching the Korean drama Full House. I like his looks better than Rain but Rain is really tallented in all ways. Looking at his picture over and over again I can't help buy just say he's really very good looking. Ok, enough of praising how good he looks. My boyfriend would strangle me if he knows how much I drool over this guy... However handsome this guy looks, my boyfriend is not that bad either... keakeakea....

Just over a month ago my boyfriend bought me an original Korean movie DVD without me tagging along. The movie title is Seducing Mr. Perfect. Knowing that I likes to watch Korean tv series or drama now a days, it's really sweet that he thought of buying it for me to watch, which of course without my knowledge that the movie even existed because I do not usually browse thorough movie store.

The first thing he said to me when he presented me with the DVD is "...have a look at the cover, is the guy really handsome or what?.." I was like... WOW! What a good looking guy he is. I must watch it no matter what. hahaha... His name is Daniel Henney, a Korean-American actor/model who claims that he speaks Korean like a 12 year old. He's American. If the actor is not him, I will watch it anyway because of the interesting title.

Well, the movie is generally quite entertaining because there's an element of humor in it together with lots of scene of Daniel Henney in it. I don't think guys would very much likes this movie as much as we girls do unless they are gays. By the title, you would have guessed what the movie is all about ya. But still, it's good to watch it yourself to find it out.

With all said, where could you find a Mr. Perfect huh?

Japanese food has always been my favourite. It used to be a luxury food in our country many many years ago. Now it is normal to have it whenever you like but still not as often as our usual rice and dishes kind of food. Anyhow, it is not difficult to find the nearest Japanese restaurant with either cheap or expensive price range in KL, or you can even go for buffet style if you are really into it.

I have always like going to a buffet style Japanese restaurant. Not that I am a big eater like I can eat a cow, it's just that I prefer having the wide sellection of food to chose from without feeling guity of how much it cost to eat the same dish over and over again because you only have to pay one price for any sellection or amount of food you eat in buffet.

One of the Japanese buffet restaurant that I wanted to try out is Jogoya at Star Hill. I heard that the food there is good and many sellections. The price is of course a bit pricy, around RM 100 per person compare to some other cheaper options like Shin-NiChi which cost around RM50 per person.

Though it feels good to be able to go for the buffet style whenever the cravings comes, just a quick fix to the nearest Japanese restaurant (without the buffet) like Sushi King or Gengi Sushi will do for me. Hmm... I wonder where on earth in Malaysia would have a restaurant which serve beautifully made sushi design like the picture here....
Can you bear to eat this?

Part 1: Beloved Sister's Wedding ~@ 07-07-07

It has been 10 days since her wedding. It seems like it just happened yesterday. And I was really busy with work and did not have time to update it on my blog. We had a great photographer, Louis, who is also one of PGC church member whom we had had many times shared the joy of serving God together during my stay with PYP and we had also shared many time together in CG and BS group. He's a great brother in Christ and I can hardly believe that he has turned out to be a great photographer too. I'm still waiting for all those pictures taken during the wedding but just a glimps of it, here is the link to Louis' blogsite that he had updated a few pictures and a slide show.

**Deep breath~~** Really hard to describe what I feel about my sister getting married (well, as now has already married).

**Sob~sob~~** There's happy tears and there's sad tears. I'm happy for her that she has found a meaning in live that she could share it with someone whom she loved and be loved, and most joyfully the love they share are bound by the love of God. I am sad because I have lost one of my dear possession which memories will not be filled the same way as before but will stay forever in my heart and soul, a wonderful memories of sharing a room together, sleeping on a queen size bed together, or having her around the house doing our own separate things. There are many more things that I will dearly missed about not having her staying in the house together all the time. Words cannot discribe those things. It is better left unspoken and leave it for the heart to tendered it. All those wonderful time we had shared together over the past 25 years living together, I will always cherish and dearly missed because she is indeed my one and only dearly beloved sister who has grown up to be a beautiful and lovely lady. Talking about this makes me feel old...haha...

Although all those experience that I have had with my sister cannot be renewed again in the same manner in the present and future, I am sure we both will find the joy in each other's company again, doing the things we both likes best ~ spending quality time together shopping, chatting and having meals together.

How to negotiate salary?

As my mid year performance review has been completed last month, it never cross my mind to try asking for more $$$ over the "special" salary adjustment which has just been done for me 3 months ago. Over the years, no doubt this thing cross my mind when my company twice yearly held the Employee Performance Review. However, I always puzzled over the idea of asking for more in terms of the tiny puny income they gave me for the humongous work load I receive.

Well, in the future if I still think I should be getting more, then I could look into some of these tips I found out from someone who e-mailed it to me. But whether having the guts and intelligence to do it or not is a different matter all together, isn't it?

10 Salary Negotatiation Tips

Do not to bring up compensation until the employer makes you an offer. If you're asked what your salary requirements are, say that they are open based upon the position and the overall compensation package. Or tell the employer you'd like to know more about the responsibilities and the challenges of the job prior to discussing salary.

Never forget that employment is an ongoing relationship. Job negotiations are the starting point for your career with a company. Get too little and you're disadvantaged throughout your career there; push too hard and you can sour the relationship before it begins.

Be creative. Consider the value of the total package. Look for different ways to achieve your objectives. Be willing to make tradeoffs to increase the total value of the deal. If you're creative, you can package what you want in ways that will be acceptable to the company. You'll also be able to find creative 'trades' that allow you to withdraw requests that might be problematic to the company in return for improvements in areas where the company has more flexibility.

Do Consider How Much Experience You Have: Those with more experience can hope to earn more money. Remember to talk about the amount of experience you have if it will help you negotiate a higher salary. If you don't have a lot of experience, be realistic about the salary for which you can ask.

Know when to quit bargaining. The one sure way to lose everything you've achieved is to be greedy. There comes a point in every negotiation when you've gotten everything you could have reasonably expected to gain. While most companies will want to treat you fairly and make you happy, few companies want to hire a prima donna. Being perceived as greedy or unreasonable may cause the deal to fall apart. Even if it doesn't, you'll have done immeasurable harm to your career.

Understand the dynamics of the particular negotiations. Sometimes you'll have skills that are in great demand. And sometimes, you may be one of several qualified candidates the company would be happy to hire. Sizing up the situation and understanding the relative position of each party will help you determine when to press your advantage and when to back off. Knowing when to ask is often critical to getting what you want.

Be prepared. The more information you have about your market value and the prospective employer, the greater your likelihood of success. This is the first commandment because it's the most important. There's a wealth of information available on the Internet, at the public library and through professional associations and networking groups. Time spent learning how to negotiate and preparing for negotiations may be the best investment you'll ever make.

Don't Talk About How Much Money You Need: When you are going through salary negotiations, don't tell your boss (or future boss) that you need to make more money because your bills are high, your house was expensive, or your child is starting college.

Do Research Salaries in Your Field: Look at recent salary surveys, talk to others working in your field, and contact your trade or professional association to find out what other people are paid for doing the same work. Remember that salaries differ by geographic region.

Timing is important. Remember that the best time to negotiate is after a serious job offer has been made and before you have accepted it. Once you are clear about the initial offer, you can express interest and even enthusiasm, but ask for more time to consider the job offer. Sometimes you can split up the negotiating session into two meetings: one to firm up the job design and responsibilities and the second to go over compensation and benefits.

8 random facts about me

This is my first time gotten tag. This came from Judy. Hmm...what's the 8 random facts about me? Here's what I can randomly think of at the moment...

1.) I love eating french fries and anything with potatoes in it. Whichever way you cook it, I will definately finish eating the potatoes.

2.) I drinks Milo with no milk, no sugar, and nothing else mix to it. And I don't like it hot.

3.) It's hard for me to wake up anytime earlier than 10am eventhough if I slept at 9pm at night.

4.) I can drive but I don't like driving and you'll seldom see me behind the wheels.

5.) I check my alarm a few times before I sleep. Sometimes even woke up in the middle of the night to check my alarm. This only happen on working days....hehe....

6.) I can't live without having these 2 gadgets - handphone, and computer with internet connection of course.

7.) I am not into sports.

8.) I am allergic to penicillin (just found out about it recently).

Now I would like 3 of my friends to share with me about this topic.

PIN number reversal

I stumble upon my old e-mail folder again and found this useful tips.

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM
machine, you can notify the police by entering your Pin # in rev erse.

For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The
ATM recognizes that your pin number is backwards from the ATM card you
placed in the machine.

The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to
The robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you.

This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that it is
seldom used because people don't know it exists.

Shopping spree

I had a very wonderful shopping trip last Sat (30th June) at KLCC. Haven't have this kind of satisfaction and happiness after so long. I had to look for a nice looking white shoes to go with my short dinner dress for my sister's wedding, and I actually found one. Many thanks to that "someone" who accompanied me and gave me invaluable help and opinion, which helped me done 90% of the decision. That "someone" was actually my worst nightmare as my shopping companion in the past. I couldn't even find any shoes at MV which has a reasonable price and as good looking as the one I just bought that day. I hope there would be many more wonderful memories shopping together with that "someone" in the future.
