My Workplace

While working in a company, we will be given a place to sit and do our work. Some people might like their place and some might not. For me, I am quiet ok with my place. I felt my workplace is full with rubbish, before I clean up and make it look neat, gotta take a shoot what is on my table 🙂


This is the place I do my work during working hour

How we park

Nah, this is how the staff park the car in front of the office. Not just park ONE car, but THREE 🙂 So the Mr Satria who parked in front of our office yesterday, please do not simply park your car in private parking space 😛

Jam


A picture I took last week, this is the bad traffic happened in KL city after working hour, where everybody rush back to rest and dine with family.

Do you know what is PRIVATE PARKING?

Come to office in the early morning, got one bloody hell parked his car in front of our office lot. I am wondering, do people know how to park their car? or do they understand what is Private Carpark. This kanasai car park in front of our office and made me gonna pay to the shity DBKL coin machine. Have to slot in after every 3 hours!

Don’t park your super car in front of our office, unless you pay us a visit! Haha, again, may be can ask my colleague to print out an A4 paper with the word “Private car park, only for staff” and stick on the windscreen with UHU Gam 😛!

Watch out for Some asshole local company Employment

Last week, one of my friend went for a job interview and she got an offer from a VOIP dot com dot my fucking company. Basically, once you get an offer, they will prepare an offer letter for you. The salary that the so call bloody cheap CEO confirmed with her during the interview was RMx5xx, and the damn CEO ask her to collect the offer letter on the first day of work. Monday, it’s the first day she went to work, and she got the offer letter from the company. Damn, the salary offer during the interview and the offer letter given is totally different. Supposingly the offer would be RMx500, and now the offer is RMx350. Althought it’s RM150 lesser, but what the company promised during the interview is different now, how can we trust a company that didn’t give the offer he promise during the interview? So, I sugggest my friend don’t sign the offer letter. Sign or not sign? If for me, I felt cheated by that company, I will look for other job, there are a lot of job oppotunity out there. Why work for a company that didn’t do what he promised?

Furthermore, there is no bonus, no allowance, no medical care. What the fuck is going on? Don’t the company have the business ethic?

For fresh graduate, here is my basic guidelines, mean some basic question you need to ask. So you won’t get con by those bloody fucking company

Basic Salary
Fix salary offer by a company, not including allowance, why we must classified as basic salary, because 7%-11% of you basic salary will be deduct for EPF.

EPF
According to Malaysian Labour Law, 7%-11% of your basic salary must be allowcate for EPF. If you do not have the EPF account, you got to register one with KWSP or the employer will register for you. Basically, the employer HAS TO register for you. Beside that, employer will contribute 7%-12% for your EPF.

Socso
Socso will deduct from your basic salary, it also contribute by employer.

Allowance
Some company might giving your petrol, laptop, handphone or reimbursement allowance.

Annual Leave
Minimum 14 days annual leave will be given for one year

Bonus or Share
Some company will be giving bonus or share in the end of the year.

Medical Care
Some company also given medical care to their employee.

and check out more info from Media Pekerja website

So, when you got the job, what should you ask? Ask them;
1. What is my BASIC SALARY?
2. How many ANNUAL LEAVE did I get?
3. Did I have MEDICAL CARE protection?
4. Is there any ALLOWANCE given?

Bonus or Share are not important, can skip that. If you work hard, sure company will give you bonus at the end of the year 🙂

Paul Wong v Paul Gilbert

Finally, Paul Wong “official” website is loaded with details, I hope it always have the latest news, so the website doesn’t look redundant. After Beyond disband, long time didn’t heard about Paul Wong news, except he voice in the last Hong Kong concert, “I am going to quit”. I think is a waste if he quit, he has the talent to compose good song and lyric! Paul, you should’t quit. Now you are with Hann, and I’m sure your bank is full with $$$, now is the time to make the music you like, no more pop bro… Pop doesn’t belong to you, I am sure you know what is your future road path is. I am always support you, buy original CD from yesasia.com, don’t waste my money :P, continue compose good music!
