*Kenangan Terindah*

Recently, I'm in love with an Indonesian song!! The song is so soothing and it has very meaningful lyrics... Check it out...

Kenangan Terindah by Samsons

Aku yang lemah tanpamu ----- Aku yang rentan karena ----- Cinta yang tlah hilang darimu ----- Yang mampu menyanjungku ----- Selama mata terbuka ----- Sampai jantung tak berdetak ----- Selama itu pun ----- Aku mampu tuk mengenangmu Darimu... Kutemukan hidupku ----- Bagiku... Kau lah cinta sejati


Bila yang tertulis untukku ----- Adalah yang terbaik untukmu ----- Kan kujadikan kau kenangan ----- Yang terindah dalam hidupku ----- Namun takkan mudah bagiku Meninggalkan jejak hidupku ----- Yang tlah terukir abadi ----- Sebagai kenangan yang terindah


This song has reminded me about my other memorable events in the past... Some of my happy moments, especially in school...

She is my best friend in high school... We spent most of our time together. Some seniors even mistaken us as twin sisters... Lol!! *miss yah*

They are my crazy classmates and Maths teacher in 2002... 5 Sc 1 Rocks!!!

Guess where were we?? Lol!! We were inside the GENTS!!! Yea... Crazy fellas... Errm.. Actually we wanted to snap a picture of every corner of the school before graduate. Thats why... *paiseh*

... And I also had a sweet and enjoyable holiday in Langkawi... But the worse part was I got sunburn after that... *sad*

So, what about your Kenangan Terindah??


Presentation Skills

I went for a "Mini Presentation Skills Workshop" last Friday. That was a quite interesting workshop. The speaker made us into 5 small groups and discussed a mini task. The task was "How do you celebrate Malaysia's 50th Birthday"... LOL!! Yea... 31st August is coming soon!

My group suggested to have some 'teleconferences' with our Malaysians abroad... And also some video clips showing our Tanah Melayu and so on... Then, 2 presenters represented my group and presented our suggestions in front of the rest... That 2 representatives did a very good job. I like the way they present... =p

After that, the speaker commented on all the presenters and gave us lots of useful tips on how to improve our skills of presentation... Here's some presentation skills that I wanna share with you... =) *Sharing is Caring* Lol!!

During Presentation
  • Take control - control the audiences
  • Breath - this may help you to reduce your nervousness
  • Realise people want you to suceed
  • Concentrate on your message, not medium - FOCUS!
  • Don't apologise for your nervousness
  • Organise your mind - BE PREPARED!
  • Pretend - Act like your super confident... Lol!!
  • Control the pace - Not too slow... Not too fast...
  • Use 'pause' - instead of 'emm... ahh... errr...'

After Presentation

  • Be supportive
  • Reward yourself - Maybe buy yourself some chocolates?
  • Get perspective

I hope these little tips will help you (and myself) to do better during presentations... =)

My experiences of conducting surveys...

As mentioned in my previous post, I am conducting a market research for my final thesis. So, I am in the process of collecting information about the consumers' buying behaviour and perceptions towards the fashion apparel products.
For the past few weeks, I was busy in the food courts and shopping malls to distribute my questionnaires. For the first day (in Asia Cafe, SS15), my response rate was not bad. Most of them are willing to participate in my research. One of them even asked if there are any vacancies in Monash University... LOL!! However, a small number of them rejected my survey politely (at least with a smile).
The following week, I was conducting my survey in Mid Valley Mega Mall. Some of the shoppers are willing to help me. They are quite friendly. But, unfortunately, the management of the shopping mall disallowed me to carry on my survey... =( Anyway, the guard stopped me in a very polite way. He didn't screw me up in public. *Phew*
Ok... Another area was Sogo, KL... The shoppers were quite rude... Most of their responses were "No!", "Solli..."... And one of the guy even ran away with my questionnaire and pen!!! What the hell... I had bad experiences over there... *Sigh*
And last week, I was in Berjaya Times Square... The situation was even worse! NONE of them is willing to fill up the form for me! One of the guy replied "Tak ape... Saya ni student"... I was like... Huh?? Did I ask u to buy anything? And some lady gave me a weird look and said no... Some even stared at me fiercely... Oh my god... I didnt know KL people are so unfriendly... No wonder one of the research conducted by Reader's Digest said KL people are rude... And yea... I had proven their research is quite true. Ohh wait... Me myself is from KL too... *Opps* Maybe I am the minority... LOL!!!
