monday, after a seminar and the state election weekend

the state election's over. i lost a bet over Dr. Sim's Pending (ya, it's like a sport when you put a bet on something, not to say, much more merrier) so i owe half a crate of Heineken to that jolly good fellow. and somebody owe me lunch, for our bet on Ba'kelalan's Bian. the 'blue ocean' strategy proved to be okay, BN remains in reign. and who am i to say if its for the better or worse of Sarawak?

i should be posting a review of a book i recently got from our local FREE internet bookloan/swap, hosted by several blog owners: mine (kukuanga), Dr. Hidayah and Siti, but, i haven't had the time to compose a decent review (as if i'd be able to do so).

the book from Dr Hidayah's collection arrived thursday afternoon via Poslaju (darn expensive at that too! RM8.35). so, i resolutely aimed for a quite evening, reading. i spent the whole night reading and jotting down some notes (pointing points worth checking for the review).


this is one of those books i wont consider checking out in a bookstore. reasons?

#1 unappealing cover

#2 the author's biodata. he's a full time lecturer = boring?

#3 the first 5 pages of the book is not engaging enough to read.


more of that book later in the review. i was in Melaka during the weekend for a seminar. i think, i enjoyed most parts of Dr Azahari (UPM) lectures. the Dr from INTAN totally flunked his lectures by mumbling over the microphone and failed to transpire the simple idea of the Blue Ocean Strategy. mokcik-mokcik pengajar jururawat misinterpreted the whole concept by giving irrelevant example during the workshop. but then again, maybe that Dr's just frustrated over our ignorance of simple kelok ekonomi.


again, i was reminded of being ancient and not knowing our own worth. old and useless = junk. old and valuable = antic. the only difference between the two is in external appreciation/ valuation which highly depends on the substance and quality. if you're wondering why most of the nurses in public hospitals lack good manner, you should meet the typical of their tutors.

i think good manners are second, first goes to their skill. i love watching the young nurses rushing by, sangat kemas.

skill is of course paramount, but, when it comes to close human contact, especially the said job, itu manner pun paling penting juga owh..
