I was anxious to receive students assignments yesterday because I will finally get to know the one dying question I have been keeping at the back of my head since March 2009. Not knowing the students one bit, I have randomly placed the students in groups for their internship. At that point, I have been asking myself if my choice of placement will be a good chemistry for the students, knowing that the students would not know each student very well and they might not even like each other.
And today I was able to read the students feelings about their placement. One particular group has caught my attention. I never knew there was so much going on in this group. Each member has strong personality and some members didn't even like each other at the beginning. The way they wrote... they sounded they were totally at my mercy!! This member wrote how much he has prejudice his fellow member because of an incident involving his friend, and finding out he will be grouping up with this member. He was scared and didn't know how to face. But in the end he said he was glad to be where he was. If not, these group members would never hang out or even have lunch together. They would actually never even talk to each other... And somehow, I really felt it was fate that played a role in bringing them together without realising myself lending a hand to make this happened. Somehow I just felt thankful to God that I somehow have helped these students in a way.
I read another student's assignment though and I was glad that this student has gained something outside from her world particular in testing times like this. I won't dwell too much on this because I don't know who are the passers by of this blog, and I don't wish to offend anyone of any religion because there is too much misunderstanding in this world. I have teamed her up with other 3 girls from two other races, and I have placed them in a very interesting place. She described her placement as 'interesting'. I was glad I didn't move her to other groups. I was happy for her. I hope she gains a new experience from religion view of point.
I'm particularly interested in reading a group's essay because the members have problem with each other. I was not really at ease reading the disappointment of the student's about a team member, but I somehow know this group has learned something important: teamwork. I hope they could be better in the future!
I never meant to read another student's essay but I was just plain sad reading it. But I was glad I read it. I never knew there was a student troubled about his placement and he wrote that he never had the courage to talk to me about it. It made me ponder about my communication and rapport. Have I been a good communicator? Been trained in sales, I know how important rapport is. Though they are just students (and very very young), they still need support and rapport. I really hope I have portrayed myself as being easy to be approached. I hope I have been a good listener, and I hope I have really given my support to these students. It now made me wonder how and where should I improve on my communication skill.
I really hope in the end the students will understand the meaning of giving back to society. Though frankly, I don't really do volunteer work other than my volunteer place provides me 5 star hotel, I really want to give back to society particularly the environment. That was what spurred my desire to study environmental studies. Because I hope I could contribute to humanity in future.
And I really hope I could contribute to the growth and development of professional yet holistic *meow*. Speaking of which, my position has finally been confirmed and my interview will be held tomorrow.

Prediction o prediction
Tuesday, October 6, 2009
Somewhere in Kajang, not very near to my home, located a person that could predict your lucky number for a very affordable price. What he does is just tell you your lucky numbers from January to December. Then you just need to buy the 4 digits he has given you at any lotto shop. And just wait for the results.
My boss's PA does that and she was telling me how accurate this guy is. I just stared at the yellow paper. She reported that she has won around RM500 and above after buying those predicted numbers.
Ooh. I was attracted but looking at the paper I knew this guy did some chanting before predicting the lucky numbers. Though I'm absolutely open minded with this kind of New Age stuff but paying this guy to get my lucky numbers is not what I'm going to because 1) it's no fun to buy a number which you know will come out and I prefer to play my awful analysing game which is quite accurate too and 2) I draw the line of openness about my religion. My religion gives lot of freedom to individuals but getting lucky numbers after someone praying is just ... against the teaching of my religion since we are taught that it is a slander not to believe in yourself.
Anyway, guess how much is this guy's service?
It's just RM 20, equivalent to USD 6.30. HAHA.

I was surprised to receive dividends from my shares twice a year. Actually I could say three times. I bought KPJ shares when it was RM2.66 per unit a few months ago. In August 2009, KPJ didn't give dividends in money form but in shares form from their another share company called ALAQAR Reits. I thought it was pretty smart of them to channel back the dividends money into their share company and award shares unit to investors instead of money. I was not quite ecstatic because I want divindends in money form. If I'm awarded with REITs, then I'm at disadvantage because I bought very few units of KPJ shares. From this amount of units, my REITs form of dividend will be incredibly small. It was a total disadvantage for me. I have two options for this REITs: a) sell the REITs or b) top up the REITs shares.
I became very undecided because I would like to buy more shares but I could not due to my current financial circumstances. So I leave this matter as it is. And I started to wonder if I have bought the right shares. If KPJ is going to give REITs in the future, then I won't have dividends?!
Surprisingly, I received dividends from the ALAQAR REITs last month. Though it's not much, but I just deposited the cheque happily. At least I don't have to use my own money to buy the REITs and can get dividends from something not really free...
And the most surprising thing was ... I received dividends from KPJ yesterday! Woohoo!! never expected it. But extreme elated!!!
Oh well, I now have no doubt of buying the right shares. But unfortunately KPJ is now too expensive to buy even though I would like to top up my units.
Speaking of KPJ, I'm not too sure if I should be angry with my remisier. I actually had no intention to buy KPJ shares. I wanted to buy another share in the IPO stage and it is on the second board of KLSE. The remisier strongly advised me to buy from main board due to stability, and I listened to him and switched to KPJ.
But somehow I'm feeling a little torn in two parts. If I didn't buy KPJ, then I won't get REITs and won't get dividends. But if I bought te share I initially wanted, I would have received dividends of RM 200.
Should I be regretting at all? Oh well renaye, time to hunt for cheaper shares now.

Today is where my boss held out a thrashing party for the committee members to thrash out their unhappiness about the major event on September 17, and also againt each other. My boss asked me to start the ball rolling but knowing my boss is not as kind as he thinks he is showing off to people, I told NEXT. And somehow the thrash part met its purpose when one of the members walked out of the room. And I just finished emailing my boss something very powerful. The sentence was "leadership is not only about having intelligence and skills but also having wisdom." I maybe lower rank than you or may it be IQ but whoever defies this email, it shows he or her is stupid. It would be interesting to see what is my boss's reaction.
On the other hand, the committee member who walked out of the meeting this morning and I had some fun in doing some ... asking pendulum for answers and tarot card reading. HAHA. I asked a question which freaked him out.
My first question was "Is there a spirit in this room". The answer was YES. Then I told him to ask the same question when I went out of the room, which he did. The answer was NO. "Is the spirit with renaye?" came with the answer YES. "Is the spirit good" came back NO. "Are the spirits renaye's past live's friends?" came back NO. "Do the spirits know renaye from past lives?" came back YES. And he just got freak out. HAHA.
Though I'm not good in telling the story from the tarot cards but I'm pretty good in getting related reading cards. I was pretty surprised myself. Never expected to draw relevant cards under pressure. I usually do reading in private and alone. I don't know whether my interpretations were accurate or not, but my colleague took it very seriously!!
Maybe I could read for people in the future. Let see if I could get hold of a tarot card reading sifu first!
