The diary of a self employed

Despite all the absence in coming out things here,but I never had decided to ditch this space of myself after the late SKYCHIN STUDIO. is something that traversed my teenage,the sole asset that my upbringings were recorded.Seeing back my old posts would make me laugh or scoff.

Well,I started my own career last month,which was quite a bold stride of me.I had been always straying here and there because I couldn't find the right path to channel this passion of me.In this maze of confusion,I finally stumbled to this decision to create my own company.

It started off with a vague idea of creating this business,I used to resent my days in secondary school questioning the integrity of that passion I thought I had ditched.I really think that it wasn't the right thing for me,but come to think of it,I find myself is still fond of gadgetry and technology,I couldn't cease to ditch gadgetry and technology. Then and then,at this verge of making decision between getting a part time job and being self employed,I went with the second one.

In this early summer,which was the March 21st,I started off my company,SKYCHIN MICRO. This stride has made things I did in the past justifiable because I find them handy when comes to coping on my own. I do not have anything,no loan,no budget,no man power but a list of contacts I had during the days and an idea.

Despite it was tough,but it wasn't too vast thanks to the friends I have around.One part of me being luckiest is to have friends who are supportive and very often they are the people who know things I need to do. Advices rendered from them were invaluable in getting the business started.Like I said,quality of life is something you do with friends around you,how they weigh to you at times of hardship and challenges.

A little stressed out,too many things tied up.Just made my name card today and got it made known to the public for the first time.I find answering to peers and friends one of the tiring tasks because once it gets on public,everyone asks about your business and why would you this and there.And nearly got into an accident driving someone's car because I was mentally so tired,I feel ten million of gratitude for not getting into that accident,thankfully I didn't bang on it...I swear I would be more vigilant.

A bit pressed out for time as the products have not been fully inputted to the system yet,out of all the cosmetic disguise,afterall this company is run by one person. Again,I feel my strength is apparently limited.

So today,I learned about being patience and cool.After the lesson learned from yesterday,now I always keep close supervision to my patience in doing anything.I try to suppress this urge to need to do things fast or avoid waiting,at times,things are meant to be at that pace,no point pushing it.Particulary on the road,I try to observe and revalue my driving habits.Well it's not entirely about being busy,it's to be consistent when driving,never bring your feelings onto the wheel.

Stayed for a while in the Soka Cultural Centre after the paper plane meet,and I came across to some passionate volunteers who work relentlessly on the ground floor for some upcoming exhibition.Their spirit has again strengthened my will in doing this field of work,despite being busy,everyone's given the same length of time,nothing could stop you to contribute.It's all on yourself.I again vow to give my best to my career and this invaluable job despite being really squeezed to breaking point,somehow I would still go for it :) There's how I conceive passion. Oh I haven't made the company stamp,gonna settle it tomorrow.

It took me months to come back here again. Sometimes I feel thrilled because I wouldn't need to renew my domain again on the next post. The past few months felt like years to me. I started my first semester in HELP University and about to begin the next semester on the following week.

Our sales have gradually picked up but still at the slow pace. Some look down on us. Sometimes, courier charges could mean a lot to us, stocking extra products could mean a tight spot to us. Getting lost in the city and ended up at the tol could mean making loss. We are that tight,every minor aspect could mean making loss. But still we firmly believe in this,even making out of a few bucks of carrying one item,we still go for it.We believe that our charcoal will soon light up and things will surely get better.

Again,as far as what we have gone through now,we feel things got better but not there,yet.

Rants of the period

This is an uncommon wee hour post,my life clock has been in haywire especially in the holiday period.It's a holiday that has no end on its length which previously the motivation I conceived while completing my A2 exam.In reality,it's not something you expect from a holiday,free time and slacking over.I still have deadlines and responsibilities to attend to,so I wonder whether I should continue to crank more things into this so called"sedentary" period.

Tried to look for jobs and found out it's either my schedule cannot fit in,get ditched or the pay is unreasonable.Since I'm someone who is already preoccupied,so I am looking for something that is far rewarding than just doing a waiter or promoter.Kinda frustrated as if I am not earning anything but leeching on the parents.And the worse nightmare is my future,I am now at the verge of fate and decision.Not sure whether I am fortunate to go to a prestigious university or would I really destine to stay in MY?Result is coming out on the 22nd.

More,a significant part of me is against my latest will to go into Accounting or Business field.From the very first time,I dreamed of studying Journalism and got confused and started to doubt whether going into that of Accounting or Business field would be the right choice.But now I am starting from the scratch again,wanting to do Communication Studies,which is practically Journalism again.To decide between your academic forte and personal liking is a tough decision.

From my hunch,2013 is going to be a revolutionary year for me.It's going to be a substantial change on my environment and the people I am meeting.Not sure whether not getting employed at the moment is a good opportunity to breathe or basically just not in luck?I really hope the hard work and portfolios I made from the past would pay off,really want to get into a good university PLEASE.

The best nigtmare

Well,I am sure everyone had their 2013 embraced.For me,my first day of the 2013 was the death of my life-nod HDD.The worst thing is,warranty is overdue but luckily I always have a good habit of keeping backups of my precious photos in another HDD.

But the real nightmare happened when I hook up my 2TB master backup HDD and installed Windows 8 to revive my workstation thinking that Windows 8 is gonna be like the 7 separating the existing directories and push in the system files.Who knew that Windows 8 formatted the root section and made it so clean that it's now with 1.83TB free space.I nearly freaked out and passed out at the instance.

At first I was struck in a daze,nothing  worse when all your sole copy of life photos for the past so many years gone in a glimpse.Fortunately,I managed to calm down and punched in some search on the internet and found some HDD recovery software that allows unformatting recovery.Then,the more challenging task is to find the crack out of this rare breed software.It's so hard to look for crack or keygen when these softwares are not even used by the mass.But somehow I managed to find the crack.

The whole night was a sleepless one,imagine losing all your photos in the past that would mean your life never happened in the past lol.That feeling,you get me?

Retrieving the files wasn't only about probability and a painstaking long hours of putting it on the scan,it requires you to sort out all the recovered files hidden or disguised in the system files.I was playing hide and seek with my memories the whole night,renaming/sorting out "jpg" files.Then finally,the recovered files weren't in their right title or name,you"ll need to rename them and compile them back.The most crucial thing is,you"ll need a massive HDD space to allow complete retrieval,but in this case,I don't have one since the 2TB one is my biggest HDD and it tragically happened to be that one.

Then the whole thing took me a whole night,only slept for a few hours and woke up.All and all thankfully I could recover back the pictures but my KPOP and KDRAMA were all GONE *sobs*Not having any bigger HDD here,the sad thing is.

Best memories of 2012

I nearly ditched blogging since this year but continued to come out another one which is also the last one for the 2012.

1.Best achievement definitely owes to my completion of A level which had drained up an enormous part of my time,strength and soul.

2.AN12B was the best high school period of me,that despite what I had done in secondary school.To me,it didn't look like a college to me.Thank you for the awesome birthday party thrown for me.Not to mention our Melaka and Genting trips.

3.Attempted for KGSP program,but anyhow learned a lot from the course and finally looking for other alternatives.At least I was qualified to apply which it was a wonder to me,if I hadn't done my A level,I wouldn't have had the right for this.

4.Got to see SNSD @ Petronas Alive in Malaysia this year.Thanks to Petronas although I didn't even pump your petrol even once.Despite it was not quite a good experience due to poor organizer,but my longed wish to see them fulfilled.

5.Spent a lot this year and bought my new phone after so many years.Lumia 800 isn't the best phone,but I get to use data and have my calender and photos in sync with the cloud.

6.Did a lot of community work and though they were intangible and often are big part of my life.I feel great doing these and will continue to do.

Back to December

I have fought so hard to prove something I did 2 years back.After such a hiatus,I am back here and consequently my rants were let out through twitter all this while,nothing comes handier than micro blogging.Now I ran out of hunch to blog here.

All this while,a lot had happened,I have no idea where to begin with.Speaking of which,my korea plan was refused few months back.Had nothing to mourn over but life has to go on,I believe opportunities are ahead.Thankfully,all my energy was spent doing the final external paper last month which had somehow alleviated my hardship.Looking back,I am glad that to the least,I had tried trying for it.

Life without going to college and exam is somehow thrilling but monotonous at some point.I wouldn't fight not wanting this kind of life.It is finally a time I can stop and ponder without much things preoccupied.When asked what is ahead,I wouldn't want to bother at the moment.I just want this holiday to be as long as it could be.

Letting ambition and work aside, for now let's talk about recreation and play,period.

Time for a break

Blogger has entirely moved to the new interface,not really used to it.It took me sometime to play and rest before kicking in with this post,it was a standstill though.

Just did my AS and went to Melaka for a class trip.Generally,I would say I gave my best and fingers crossed only.Currently giving myself a short break in conjunction of the school holiday,not engaging in any obligation given yet,sad to say I'm having a flu right now.Too bad it's in the holiday,but fortunately it's in the holiday cause I'd have screwed up my AS lol.

I have finally changed my phone last month,complementing my trusty LG KP500.Life sure is more convenient as I have data carried around and a better phone camera.Not only that,having a private line means more privacy as I could have 2 lines for different types of contact.

At times we loathe life,studying eats up a big part of life,that when we finally able to breathe a sigh of relief,then your working life kicks in,after you worked yourself hard for 20 years,having family and this and that,then it's your retirement days...and then it's your grave.Life happens and never asked you for a break.

I dream of a length of time say if I were given a period of 1 year to play and live complacently.I would really make use of it.I'd read the books I like,drive out to places I wanted to visit,play hard and sleep early..that I could even write a book about what I'd do if I were given this one year.Okay,just an assumption.

We may not know,because we might need life to be somewhat contrived to really learn what is life and the important things don't we.Like studying,if studying wasn't obligatory,we wouldn't have done that at first.

Central Bank Visit


Finally got to visit the central bank,so far we have visited the parliament and central bank,hopefully more to come before we graduate.Generally speaking,nothing much than their fantastic architecture in the BSN Museum.They could be as lavish as spending on 3 commercial projectors just to make an interactive information wall,that they have like 16 projectors working in the gallery.Nice tempered glass and marbles there,there were sculptures and paintings on the 3rd floor which they claim could cost up to six figures.


Us and Ms.Koh and the birthday boy at the centre,Wai Leong.


The presenter did his job in the brief introduction part of what the central bank does.One thing I find irritating about the presenter was that he couldn't keep to his native tongue,trying to fake accents was odd already.The worst part was he couldn't keep to one,and switched from British to American and finally his own manglish later on.

It did us a painstaking experience walking for 600m to the BNM Museum,the irony was other colleges had their own buses sending them to the entrance but only us having to walk :( Overall the trip was a success and later we had our lunch in Steven's Corner with Jordan,Xavier and our president,Jiwan.

Tomorrow's a public holiday,that's why I get to blog now :D
