gentle reminder

I need to post a few gentle reminders here.

If your working hour starts at  7.30am or 8.00am, it means you have to WORK starting from 7.30am or 8.00am. Not just punched in and join the 8.30am crowd for breakfast until 8.30am. 8.30am crowd starts working at 8.30am. But 7.30am and 8.00am crowds, you guys SHOULD START YOUR WORK AT 7.30am or 8.00am. Please eat before that.

If you have a lot of work, cut short your lunch time. I usually take 10 minutes to finish my lunch and continue my work. Having a one hour lunch break does not mean you have the right to eat for 30 minutes and spend another 30 minutes watching Korean drama. Or worse, on Friday, eat for 30 minutes and spend another 2 hours watching movie. You can accomplish may things in 2 hours. I choose to complete my OUTSTANDING TASKS.

Have system in the office. Remember where you put things.

Always have list of outstanding tasks in front of you.

Say only important things. Other people have work to do.

My Working Wall

Working Wall at my office. 
Series of mindmap (far) and planning for slide presentation (the closer one).

Food : Fever

I was down with a fever during weekend and my husband prepared barbeque and steamoat for dinner. The next day, I prepared white rice and grilled salmon for baby Nazmi. Salmon is his favourite fish :)

Food : Tea Time

My husband was away for a photoshoot. I prepared Mi Bandung Muar for him in the evening. And of course, some fruits.

Best friends at IIUM Sports Complex

Every Saturday and Sunday, I will usually be running around sending Nabil to his tuition class (Malay, English, Math & Science) from 9am to 1pm and Nazreen and Nazran to their reading classes (Nazreen - English & Nazran - Malay) from 11am to 12.30pm, if my husband is not around.

Last two weeks, my husband was away for photoshoot and Nabil's tuition teacher was away performing umrah, so, in between sending Nazreen and Nazran to their reading class and picking them up after one and the half hour later, we went to IIUM. And there was an annual primary school's sport event. We stopped by and let Nazmi sit under the tree and watch the games (ok, ok, I am the one who wanted to watch the games).

For my office's potluck, I made Apple Crumble - Kek Batik - Fruit Cocktail Custard with Mango Pudding. As usual.
