An article for sharing.
online resource:

One of the keys to getting the most out of your time is developing the ability to ask yourself the right questions at the right time. This need only take a few seconds before you begin any given task. More often than not, you will find these few seconds will present new and better ways of doing what needs to be done.

While it is important to manage your time with calendars, diaries and daily plans, effective time management also requires that you manage yourself.

Before you set about any task, big or small, stop and ask yourself whether this is the best use of your time. Perhaps there are other, better ways of achieving the same result. Or maybe it is a task that you are not particularly suited to that another person could do in half the time, in which case you might want to delegate.

If you do decide to take on the task yourself, ask yourself what is the best way to complete it quickly and easily. It only takes seconds to ask yourself these questions and listen to the answers that come.

As time goes on you will get better at this. One of the most important things to do is to learn how to ask the right questions. In general, your questions should begin with the word 'what'. This focuses your attention and evokes clarity. The remainder of the question needs to ensure that it opens up possibilities, is solution oriented, elicits information and moves you forward.

Here are some examples of powerful 'what' questions that would help you focus better on a particular task and make more effective use of your time:

"What is the most important thing for me to focus on at the moment?"

"What would enable me to use my time more effectively?"

"What isn't getting done that needs doing?" And added to that, "What will it take to get this done?"

"What is the next step for me in this moment?"

These questions can also be used when considering more long-term goals. For example, "What do I want my life to look like in five years?".

Once you have asked any question you need to take a little time, perhaps one minute, to listen to the response that comes to you. You may find that what comes up in your response is clear enough and you now know the best way forward.

However, you may find that your response lacks clarity. It may include all sorts of thoughts and ideas, but no clear way forward. In this case, it can be a good idea to take note of the thoughts that come to you and break the problem down into smaller parts to find the best way forward. You may find there are more specific questions you need to ask.

However, for the smaller tasks in our day-to-day professional and personal lives clear answers usually come quite easily and quickly. So, before you move on to your next task take a little time to consider whether it is the best use of your time and if so, how you can complete it in a time effective manner.

Awaiting Challenges

It will be another brand new semester for me tomorrow.
Hmm..should I be Happy? Excited?
Or even looking forward for it?

I don't know.

Well, I doubt. I fear.

Result will be released in another 4 days.

Hopefully, I manage to pass all.
But, this is what I hope the most.
--> To Pass With Flying Colors!!

Gratefully, I ask god,
Can I?

Guess what?

HE does not answer me.
Not even a single clue.

What I got from him was...

"Be Patience, My Girl."
"Your doubt will be cleared on Thursday."
"Just Wait."

I shall wait. And See.

Nothing is perfect in this world.

Some are poor.
Some are not good looking.
Some are not talented.
Some are having bad tempered.
Some are greedy.
Some are childish.
There are more...uncountable...

Although there are so many imperfections out there,
Do we actually sit back, relax,
and try to think about what is more important behind every imperfection?

Go for cosmetic surgery?
Put on thick make-up?
Or trying to be someone else?

Conclusion: We will end up being very FAKE!

Why don't we just be who we are?
Why not just be contented of what we already have.

If there happen to be imperfections,

只有接受不完美,才能让一切变得更完美!(quoted from the movie "Perfect Cut2)
Nice one.

Choco Weekend

Went up to Genting Highland during the weekend.

I feel neither fun nor excitement this time.
Well, maybe, I should say this.
Genting Highland is no longer a suitable place for relaxation.

Polluted air.
Rude people.
Terrible cinema.
Expensive food.
Limited outdoor & indoor games.
And the list goes on...

I doubt, why it can still be classified as,
"The City Of Entertainment"!?
Is it because of the casino?
To me, casino is just like a money sucker.
Once you enter the door of casino,
aha, it will suck almost all your money.
Well, in other word, don't ever think that you could 'save' your pockets.
For sure, there will be some holes when you leave the casino.

Although everyone knows it, but they are willing to take the risk.
Well, just pray hard before you enter.
Hopefully, god bless.

Just when I am about to black list this place...
Mummy bought me some chocolates at Gohtong Jaya.
Even though they are produced in Malaysia.
But, to my surprise, they taste so good!
Smooth and delicious.
No lies.
Their quality is fine.
They are comparable to other well known chocolate brand like Fidani & Hershey.

-from left: almond choco, tiramisu (my fav), and milk almond-

-few boxes of other flavor choco-

Chocolates manage to make people smile.
This happen to me as well.
So, with all those chocolates,
at least, I see some colors in my weekend.

I just wish to...


With all the exams popping in...
With all the stress I am having recently...
With all the ups and downs I am going through lately...

ONE conclusion for that: They are killing me softly!

As I was thinking how to overcome those..
Aha! Suddenly, I've came across something..

It is making me so "highhhhh up"
It is making me so "exxxxx-cited"

What is it? Mmmm...

Ladies & Gentlemen..It is The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel (Dubai)

To me, it could be considered as the world most beautiful hotel! (well, at least for now..)
Oh god, I just wish to go there..right now!
Lets peek at it...

And this..Oh..the nicest part of will be so close to the nature!
With all the marine creatures around you, I am sure, no nightmare of course!

Beautiful, isn't it?
So, tell me, how can I not dreaming again? Haih..
