YEP

YEP stands for Young Entrepreneur Program. It is a program where school children are given the opportunity to run and manage their own business. These children form a company. They have a CEO, CFO, Marketing Director, HR Director and other important positions. They will have weekly meeting, learned how to write minutes, learned about coming with a product and marketing it, learn about competition, etc. They have guidance from working adult. My company participated in such a program.

Last week a few students from one school came into the office accompanied by their "mentor", an employee of the company I am working in. The mentor introduced the student and told us that they have this particular product to sell. The product is some sort of Post-It Notes packaged in a handmade box with nice ribbons and wrapping papers. The box were nicely done. Very good quality.. something one would find in a handicraft shop. Their so called marketing strategy is to buy this and give it to the secretary since last week was a Secretary Week. I have no secretary nor assistant so the thing is really useless for me. Not only that, the price for the product is a cut-throat RM14!

The students were extremely shy. They dare not walk around to show us their stuff nor do they want to pitch the product. I can feel for them. I used to be a very shy student myself and this particular girl was like so helpless.

Anyway, long story short, I got suckered.

So what am I going to do with an extremely expensive Post-It notes in a nice heart-shaped box? I am thinking of perhaps you know, somehow, giving it to Anne but giving just a Post-It notes sounded lame. What should I write in there? Poetry? Love Songs? What?

Any suggestions? Dr Love?

I think I have too much time... :D

Oh, BTW, my Chemistry post has received lots of comments lately. It's worth checking out.

  1. I suggest that you put in 'puisi-puisi' (poetries) from this month onwards for everyday in the cute box. Each day put your loving thoughts (trembling!!) so that each day she can peel the pad for surprises. What say you! Actions speaks louder than words! So start writting!

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009.

The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!!

Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours.

LG UltraWide Monitor 38WK95C Review

I bought this today. It was not an impulse buy. I spent months researching and then two months of waiting for stock from LG Malaysia.


Trust me, it is not easy to buy a modern monitor these days.

I have a few criteria:
ultra wide screen regardless of size - can be 32" or 34" or even 34"it must be IPS screen, not TN or whatever the other one is calledit must have USB-C to charge the MacBook Pro and also to extend the display of the MacBookit must have good speakers. Not the puny ones that some Dell monitor shipped with. Really good ones. I hate having to plug in the speaker jack from PC to monitorit should have G-Sync supportbonus - it has nice legs that doesn't take up space I have searched high and low. I looked for Asus, I looked at Dell and Alienware.. none of them ticked these checkboxes, particularly that USB-C one..

I realize that I really wanted the USB-C and good speakers. I don't really care about G-Sync because even though I still play games, I spen…

2017 Honda CRV in Malaysia! An owner's review

After years of driving an old car, I finally decide to change. And having a small family, I was eyeing a SUV. Last year, we were considering a Mazda CX5 because of its exterior look but after inspecting it in a showroom and then sitting on a Honda CRV, we have no doubt that Honda was the choice to go. Our decision was simply based on how spacious the interior cabin of the CRV is compared to the CX5.



And so, we have to decide whether to get one early this year or wait for the new CRV which was supposed to launch in May 2017 (well, that was before Honda Malaysia decided to delay the launch date after Raya). What made me wait for the new model was that the sales agent told me that the new CRV will have a new engine and Apple CarPlay! Being an Apple fan, as you can tell from this blog, I definitely wanted CarPlay. We dropped a deposit with the showroom sales agent in April.

I waited patiently and when Honda finally launched the car on 12 July, the wife and I went to the showroom for a lo…
