It’s All A Gift




God gives to us whether we thank Him or not. He’s generous to us beyond our imaginations.

THANK YOU GOD, PRAISE TO THE LORD, BLESS YOU GOD!
Peggy, Jessica, Hanry & Mike was willing to give way…therefore Miguel got the 2 additional blocks…everything have been settle amicably…I have been saved by God again.

Yesterday, Peggy asked me whether I want to join her team as a buyer or not…whether Peggy was joking about it or being serious…well at least, there is still someone who still remember my previous job role & gave a recognition to it…

Marquess of Torres Vedras




It’s not you…whew…

Marcus shared this with me…Sörenstam doesn’t quite like Samuel…wants Marcus to transfer Samuel out…and ask Marcus to get another headcount…so this is where Madeleine comes in…Sörenstam wants Marcus to recruit someone like J___...hahaha…have merchandising background, can present…hahaha…I think I have given Sörenstam a very good first impression…thereafter…I failed miserably…nonetheless…THANK YOU GOD, PRAISE TO THE LORD, BLESS YOU GOD! Ok, now I ada semangat sikit untuk kerja…hahaha...

I rather Marcus mengulingkan Mr. Horton’s Secretary…hahaha…so, meaning now…I have to look forward to Madeleine’s arrival…I actually suggested Uncle Andy to Marcus...I think we need an Analyst; rather than another manager...but then, at the end of the day...Marcus is the one who makes the final decision...

Earl of Mornington




Betul – betul menyampah…Mr. Horton’s Secretary tak boleh diharap langsung…not a team player…must be careful…extra careful…

All these while…during the S&M meeting…Mr. Horton’s Secretary have never left the room, will sit in the room until the meeting ends…regardless whether the meeting is being chair by Marcus or Mr. Horton’s Secretary…and today, the meeting was chair by Mr. Horton’s Secretary...while I was presenting my part…Mr. Horton’s Secretary left! That is also because…I have prompted Mr. Horton’s Secretary this morning…that when it comes to the Hari Raya Promo Space part…Miguel & the Head of Apparel will bising at me and I will have a backlash from them. This Mr. Horton’s Secretary…tak ada semangat kerjasama langsung…abandon me…to let me face all of these alone.

However, my God is greater…THANK YOU GOD, PRAISE TO THE LORD, BLESS YOU GOD! The whole situation was calm…both Jessica & Peggy was calm…Miguel was also calm…

From tomorrow onwards…I and Mr. Horton’s Secretary will have no more conversation related to work…all casual only…Mr. Horton’s Secretary is not only selfish…finally, all the true colors are out…dia sebenarnya tak baik langsung

Virtue not ancestry




Madeleine: Marcus apps me last week, might hv an opening for me thr…so I want to ask some details from u…how Trade’ planning dept? Wat u do thr? Interesting girl? We been a buyer. How different is this to our buying role?

Marcus must be kidding me…want to add one more headcount?! And we are yet to do the real Trade Planning work as well…now, also 3’s a crowd…on Friday, the Group re-structuring news was out…so, Marcus must have apps Madeleine before Friday…Marcus is also on a mission to bring back Baldwin into G13; under Mike…

Virtus Non Stemma




So, buat presentation deck…Marcus tak berapa boleh lah…presentation…also so – so only…I wonder how Marcus felt today…Uncle Andy more pro than Marcus in every single angle…hahaha…and yes…this is where I must learn…I must slay the whole damn thing...

FOY POUR DEVOIR




Hahaha…Marcus’s take…no originality…no breakthrough…no newness…what Marcus did was copy & paste the whole damn thing from FOM, tidy the slides up a bit…add in some colors...draw proper tables...and that was it…so, now we all know where Marcus’s capabilities lies…however, it’s not wrong also…Marcus also confess that Marcus took it from FOM…the whole deck was from the Group (top down approach)...and Sörenstam also ask Marcus to use the original FOM deck…hahaha…

VBL 6503 arrived yesterday!

Virtue alone is unconquered




Feedback from Sir Thomas on my Press Ad Sales Results…not user friendly, data is not robust, numbers are not dynamic, there is no call for action, there is no top of mind, it’s not visually impactful…fine…I’m no analyst either…here’s the thing…both Sörenstam & Marcus are clueless about Trade Planning…they don’t know what the scope is all about…Marcus keeps on doing the remeh-temeh part...I think Uncle Andy, Mr. Horton’s Secretary, Samuel & myself does know…but here’s the thing…we cannot be seen to be overwriting the authorities…Uncle Andy and Mr. Horton’s Secretary don’t want to do the heavier work as well…everything want to outsource...for them, if it can be delegated; delegate as much as possible...Samuel pula take on everything...sigh…but I have to say…for the past 2 weeks…the Store Walk Revamp, the S&M Meeting Revamp, the Promo Charter, the Promo Theme Evaluation…did sort of inject some excitement back into my life…hmm…I don’t mind to do the heavier work…just need the extra effort to convince Marcus & nudge Marcus to the other side without being seen as having any personal agenda…hahaha…being a buyer; it's about putting off the fire on a daily basis…Trade Planning is about looking at the bigger picture of things, at a higher level, doing the priorities; not what is important…
