Random Thoughts on a New Year Eve

AkiraSabine has had enough. She wants to move on. She doesn't know her future. Many things flashes through her mind every single second. She can't concentrate, she can't differentiate reality from mere thoughts.
She can't give her all, she doesn't know her next step, she felt she's abandoned in a dungeon,
no one's seeing, no one's's hearing and no one giving a thought.

She wants to put a stop to the present but she doesn't know what then?
She thinks she's had enough but a small voice is telling her, NO! not now.
She thinks life's not treating her well now, and she wants to leave, no one's listening,
no one's understanding, no one's emphatizing, but everyone's talking.
People says that's complaining but hell no.. she wasn't complaining.
who the hell they think they are to judge her?

but she thinks again, If she makes the move now..
" That would mean she's weak,if she were to walk away now
That would mean she's not strong, if she just give it all up that easily
That would mean she's not matured enough to cope , if she were to turn her back
That would mean she's a complete failure, if she couldn't live with barriers."

She's weak... NO!.... She's too pampered... NO!.. She's not a good asset ..Hell, NO!

Hell, couldn't she not relate those thoughts to herself.
So long, she thinks life shouldn't need to be this way..
So long, she believes there's a better opportunity should she chose another direction
So long, she thinks God has a better plan for her (she's a free thinker, by the way)
so long, she thinks work doesnt'need to affect her personal life, her physical & mental health, her personal quiet time, her personal stand, her beliefs, her carefree character.

Sometimes, she thinks, although many work for money, there are also many who work due to
ego. They push themselves in order to compete with colleagues. It's not just for the bigger
bigger paycheque, it's for the compliments and status. Even without a bigger paycheque, the feeling of being more knowledgeable, more capable and valuable to the organization outdoes
the money. She thinks she's one of them considerieng now that she's thinking "What would the rest think of me when I give it all up right when things are kicking off?"

If so, no wonder companies doesn't need booster for employee efficiency.
If so, no wonder companies increase their profits year after year.
If so, no wonder employees work day and night without qualms as they have every support for
company's mission and vision.

To her, is life worth sacrificing for the vision of a non-living body?
To her, is it worth being a good employee or a strayed opportunity seeker?
To her, there's something that fits every personality out there rather than impressing slaving for the bigger paycheque when there's already established policy to the increment.

Does it ever concern you that people will take you as weak when you quit?

I might reveal my plans in one of the coming posts. Stay tuned....

Oh, it's 12 am Malaysian time now!!!


May this year filled with laughter, abundance and accomplishments to both Akira and you guys!

Why HK Dramas Draw Flashbacks?

The bamboo building a.k.a Bank of China Building.

The IFC oftenly featured in HK TVB - The Gem Of Life

They claim this as the longest outdoor escalator. It's meant to commute public who stays up this steep slope. The SOHO is up here too.

If you choose to walk up the slope instead....

While trekking around the peak...

Every morning in Aberdeen....


From inside the cable car at Ocean Park....

Where else!

OK, this is not a mere picture entry.

It was November '09...

AkiraSabine just watched several episodes of TVB's Heart Of Greed. Automatically, the memory of 2 months ago came flashing back as they show the views of HK. She saw snippets of views at Victoria Harbour, view from Victoria Peak and Tsim Tsa Chui. Earlier, when she watched The Gem Of Life, she constantly saw snippets of the IFC, the escalator at MidLevels, Lan Kwai Fong, the piers, the MTR stations, the trams, the taxis, buses and mini buses.

All these sights brought her back to her visit 2 months ago. The sights of the luxury cruises cruising across the harbour especially, which she caught sight from the peak, trhe harbour and from where she did her hiking. The people around her who all spoke Cantonese unlike where she came from with a mixture of languages, the busy streets, the high rises, the nice soft bakeries.

On her only Sunday in HK, the streets got crowded. For a moment, AS was confused if she was in a neighbouring South East Asian country or HK. People came and picnic as early as 8 o'clock in the morning at pavements and parks. People swarmed into departmental stores like bees. People occupying the public sports amenities with their own skin of people.

All in all, it's been a pleasant up close experience in HK. All the while, HK only appears on TV to AS that she's could not still believe she's landed and explored the country by herself. It was as nice as she expected it to be!

What 10 things this Malaysian Realized About HK?

1. The coins come in various thickness and shapes.

While using the public phone, I snapped.

2. Hongkies like to soak under the hot sun at the beach

"Happening beach!", I snapped

3. Hong Kong does have nice beautiful hiking trails.

"WOW!", I snapped

4. Hong kong is all about sky scrapers and water and this Malaysian is awestruck

While enjoying my light lunch to this sound and sight, I snapped

5. Food serving in HK Char Chan Teng is LARGE and the locals actually have no problem cleaning the plate.

While sitting next to him, I 'hehehe' snapped

6. At these Char Chan Teng, I found out it's a good opportunity to mingle and eat side by side with locals.
While sitting facing him, I snapped the surrounding

7. When you say Kowloon Ma Tau (Kowloon Harbour), it is not the one which you earlier arrived at from HK Island by Star Ferry.

While I found myself lost, I still snapped

8. When I said I wanted to get down at Ad - Mi - Ral - Ty stop, neither the bus drivers nor locals understood me. When I
showed the chinese name of it, they said "Ohh, Ad-Mel-Ty Zham (I see, Ad-Mel-Ty Stop)."

After laying my butt, I snapped...

9. On Sundays, the Chinese Metropolitan city turned into a multicultural street carnival.

From the pedestrian bridge, I snapped..

10. It is OK to trespass the high rise from malls & restaurants to banks and office buildings to get to the MTR / bus station at the basement.
Is this how law of average works to increase exposure and public awareness of your business?

While waiting for the mercy of vehicles, I snapped..
