Malam Yang Indah di Jakarta

Sebenarnya kedatangan gua ke di Jakarta ini adalah untuk melihat perusahaan kain-kain dan pakaian di Tanah Abang. Sahaja tengok-tengok sambil buat kajian ringkas berdasarkan harga dan logistik.  Melalui pemerhatian aku memang murah harganya kerana di situ menjadi pusat jualan secara pukal di mana segala perusahaan di seluruh Indonesia akan dijual disitu. Gua tidak amik gambar kerana sibuk melihat apa yg berlaku di sekeliling dan juga sebagai keselamatan gua supaya tidak kelihatan sebagai pelancong.

Malam itu aku jalan-jalan di sekitar bandar Jakarta di Monas dan juga makan nasi kambing. Rasa kambing di sana berbeza di Malaysia entah aku rasa lain pada hal daging kambing juga mungkin cara masakan yang berbeza. Tetapi semasa aku baru sampai di Jakarta aku dipelawa makan di restoran Indonesia di pusat membeli belah Grand Indonesia memang sedap. Mungkin  jika di dalam mall kualiti dia terjaga tetapi pasti harganya berbeza berbanding harga makan di tepi jalan.

Jangan terkejut jika anda makan di tepi jalan ada pangamen aka pemuzik jalanan menghampiri tempat makan anda . Jumpa lagi di Jakarta.

16 Rich Habits

Nak share dengan kawan-kawan the article about 16 rich habits. Pokok pangkalnya everything start with positive mind.

Intelligence, talent and charm are great, but more often than not these aren’t what separate the wealthiest among us from the poorest.

Instead, the differences are in our daily habits. Do you realize that these subconscious, second-nature activities make up 40 percent of our waking hours? That means that two out of every five minutes, all day and every day, we operate on autopilot. It’s true: Habits are neural pathways stored in the basal ganglia, a golf ball-size mass of tissue right in the center of our brains, in the limbic system.

This neural fast lane is meant to save the brain energy: When a habit is formed and stored in this region, the parts of the brain involved in deeper decision-making cease to fully participate in the activity. However, we all know there are good habits and bad habits.

I spent years studying the difference between the habits of our country’s rich and poor, questioning hundreds of individuals. On the rich side, these were people with annual gross income north of $160,000 and net liquid assets of $3.2 million or more. I defined the lesser-off as those with gross income of $35,000 or less and no more than $5,000 in liquid assets. When I was done, I analyzed the results of my research and boiled down the responses to create a picture of what allows the wealthy to prosper where others do not. My ensuing book became a sort of instruction manual for how to become wealthy.

The gulf between Rich Habits and Poverty Habits is staggering. If you’re well off already, chances are you already adhere to most of these Rich Habits. Integrating the ones you’ve neglected will push you further. But be assured: If you’re doing fine now without minding these principles, it’ll catch up to you.

Some of the differences between rich and poor are obvious, while others are a little more surprising. Here are the most important Rich Habits you can take up to reach and maintain your wealth potential.

1. Live within your means.

Wealthy people avoid overspending by paying their future selves first. They save 20 percent of their net income and live on the remaining 80 percent.

Among those who are struggling financially, almost all are living above their means. They spend more than they earn, and their debt is overwhelming them. If you want to end your financial struggles, you need to make a habit of saving and budgeting what you spend. Here are some sensible ways to budget your monthly net pay:

▲Spend no more than 25 percent on housing, no matter if you own or rent.
▲Spend no more than 15 percent on food.
▲Limit entertainment—bars, movies, miniature golf, whatever—to no more than 10 percent of your spending. Vacations should account for no more than 5 percent of your annual net pay.
▲Spend no more than 5 percent on auto loans, and never lease. Ninety-four percent of the wealthy buy instead of leasing. These folks keep their cars until the wheels fall off, taking great care along the way so that they save money in the long run.
▲Stay away from accumulating credit card debt. If you are doing this, it’s a clear sign that you need to cut back somewhere.
▲ Think of savings and investments as two completely different things. You should never lose money on your savings. Try to stash six months of living expenses in an emergency fund in case you lose your job or your business goes belly-up.
▲ Contribute as much as you can afford to a retirement plan. If you work for a company that matches your contributions up to a certain percentage, great. Always take that free money when you can get it.

2. Don’t gamble.

Talk about a sucker bet: Every week, 77 percent of those who struggle financially play the lottery. Hardly anyone who is wealthy plays the numbers. Wealthy people do not rely on random good luck for their wealth. They create their own good luck. If you still want to bet after knowing the risk, use money from your entertainment budget.

3. Read every day.

Reading information that will increase your knowledge about your business or career will make you more valuable to colleagues, customers or clients. Among wealthy people, 88 percent read 30 minutes or more every day. Just as important, they make good use of their reading time:

▲ 63 percent listen to audiobooks during their commute.
▲ 79 percent read educational career-related material.
▲ 55 percent read for personal development.
▲ 58 percent read biographies of successful people.
▲ 94 percent read current events.
▲ 51 percent read about history.
▲ 11 percent—only 11 percent—read purely for entertainment purposes.

The reason successful people read is to improve themselves. This separates them from the competition. By increasing their knowledge, they are able to see more opportunities, which translate into more money. Comparatively speaking, only one in 50 of those struggling financially engages in this daily self-improvement reading, and as a result the poor don’t grow professionally and are among the first to be fired or downsized.

4. Forget the boob tube and spend less time surfing the Internet.

How much of your valuable time do you lose parked in front of a screen? Two-thirds of wealthy people watch less than an hour of TV a day and almost that many—63 percent—spend less than an hour a day on the Internet unless it is job-related.

Instead, these successful people use their free time engaged in personal development, networking, volunteering, working side jobs or side businesses, or pursuing some goal that will lead to rewards down the road. But 77 percent of those struggling financially spend an hour or more a day watching TV, and 74 percent spend an hour or more a day using the Internet recreationally.

5. Control your emotions.
Not every thought needs to come out of your mouth. Not every emotion needs to be expressed. When you say whatever is on your mind, you risk hurting others. Loose lips are a habit for 69 percent of those who struggle financially. Conversely, 94 percent of wealthy people filter their emotions. They understand that letting emotions control them can destroy relationships at work and at home. Wait to say what’s on your mind until you’re calm and have had time to look at the situation objectively.

Fear is perhaps the most important negative emotion to control. Any change, even positive changes such as marriage or a promotion, can prompt feelings of fear. Wealthy people have conditioned their minds to overcome these thoughts, while those who struggle financially give in to fear and allow it to hold them back.

Whether you fear change, making mistakes, taking risks or simply failure, conquering these emotions is about leaning in just a little until you build up confidence. It’s amazing how much confidence helps.

6. Network and volunteer regularly.

You’ll build valuable relationships that can result in more customers or clients, or help you land a better job if you spend time pressing the flesh and giving back in your community. Almost three-quarters of wealthy people network and volunteer a minimum of five hours a month. Among those struggling financially, only one in 10 does this.

One perk of volunteering is the company you’ll keep. Very often the boards and committees of nonprofits are made up of wealthy, successful people. Developing personal relationships with these folks will often result in future business relationships.

7. Go above and beyond in work and business.

Unsuccessful people have “it’s not in my job description” syndrome. Consequently, they are never given more responsibility, and their wages grow very little from year to year—if they keep their jobs at all. Wealthy individuals, on the other hand, make themselves invaluable to their employers or customers, writing articles related to their industry, speaking at industry events and networking. Successful people work hard to achieve the mutual goals of their employers or their businesses.

8. Set goals, not wishes.
You cannot control the outcome of a wish, but you can control the outcome of a goal.

Every year, 70 percent of the wealthy pursue at least one major goal. Only 3 percent of those struggling to make ends meet do this.

9. Avoid procrastination.

Successful people understand that procrastination impairs quality; creates dissatisfied employers, customers or clients; and damages other nonbusiness relationships. Here are five strategies that will help you avoid procrastination:

▲ Create daily “to-do” lists. These are your daily goals. You want to complete 70 percent or more of your “to-do” items every day.
▲ Have a “daily five.” These activities represent the crucial things that will help you get closer to realizing some major purpose or goal.
▲ Set and communicate artificial deadlines. There’s nothing wrong with finishing early.
▲ Have accountability partners. These are people you team with to pursue a big goal. Communicate with them at least every week, and make sure they hold your feet to the fire.
▲ Say a “do it now” affirmation. This is a self-nagging technique. Repeat the words “do it now” over and over again until you begin a task or project.

10. Talk less and listen more.

A 5-to-1 ratio is about right: You should listen to others five minutes for every one minute that you speak. Wealthy people are good communicators because they are good listeners. They understand that you can learn and educate yourself only by listening to what other people have to say. The more you learn about your relationships, the more you can help them.

11. Avoid toxic people.
We are only as successful as the people we spend the most time with. Of wealthy, successful people, 86 percent associate with other successful people. But 96 percent of those struggling financially stick with others struggling financially.

If you want to end your financial struggles, you need to evaluate each of your relationships and determine if they are a Rich Relationship (with someone who can help you up) or a Poverty Relationship (with someone holding you back). Start spending more and more time on your Rich Relationships and less on your Poverty Relationships. Rich Relationships can help you find a better job, refer new business to you or open doors of opportunity.

12. Don’t give up.
Those who are successful in life have three things in common: focus, persistence and patience. They simply do not quit chasing their big goals. Those who struggle financially stop short.

13. Set aside the self-limiting beliefs holding you back.

If you’re hurting financially, you’ve probably told yourself some of these untruths before: Poor people can’t become rich. Rich people have good luck and poor people have bad luck. I’m not smart. I can’t do anything right. I fail at everything I try.

Each one of these self-limiting beliefs alters your behavior in a negative way. Almost four out of five wealthy people attribute their success in life to their beliefs. Change your negative beliefs into positive affirmations by reading lessons from the greats of personal development, like Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie and Jim Rohn.

14. Get a mentor.

Among the wealthy, 93 percent who had a mentor attributed their success to that person. Mentors regularly and actively participate in your growth by teaching you what to do and what not to do. Finding such a teacher is one of the best and least painful ways to become rich.

If you know your goals, find someone who has already achieved them. You’ll be amazed by how many people want to lend a helping hand.

15. Eliminate “bad luck” from your vocabulary.

Those struggling financially in life have a way of creating bad luck for themselves. It’s a byproduct of their habits. Poverty Habits, repeated over and over are like snowflakes on a mountainside. In time, these snowflakes build up until the inevitable avalanche—a preventable medical problem, a lost job, a failed marriage, a broken business relationship or a bankruptcy.

Conversely, successful people create their own unique type of good luck. Their positive habits lead to opportunities such as promotions, bonuses, new business and good health.

16. Know your main purpose.

It’s the last Rich Habit, but it might be the most important. Those people who pursue a dream or a main purpose in life are by far the wealthiest and happiest among us. Because they love what they do for a living, they are happy to devote more hours each day driving toward their purpose.

Odds are, if you are not making sufficient income at your job, it is because you are doing something you do not particularly like. When you can earn a sufficient income doing something you enjoy, you have found your main purpose.

Believe it or not, finding this purpose is easy. Here’s the process:

1. Make a list of everything you can remember that made you happy.
2. Highlight those items on your list that involve a skill, and identify that skill.
3. Rank the top 10 highlighted items in the order of joy they bring to you. Whatever makes you happiest of all gets 10 big points.
4. Now rank the top 10 highlighted items in terms of their income potential. The most lucrative skill of all is worth 10 points.
5. Total the two ranked columns. The highest score represents a potential main purpose in your life. Presto!

As you can see, the differences between rich and poor are simple—sometimes intuitive—but not insignificant. Aim to take up all 16 of these habits, and you’re almost guaranteed to become better off.

You can change your life and reach your goals, all by making small tweaks to your daily routine

20 Perkara Unik Tentang Guangzhou

Sebelum aku terlupa aku ingin coretkan pengalaman ringkas aku selama 5 hari di Gungzhou bersama travel buddy dan orang tempatan

Masjid Huaisheng Guangzhou
1. Bahasa komunikasi utama mereka ada bahasa Mandarin walaupun di sana terdapat pelbagai etnik namum bahasa ibunda mereka adalah madarin. Maka belajarlah bahasa mandarin mudah atau 'Mandarin for Business' kerana akan membantu ada di sana.

2. Kebanyakkannya semua perkataan dan signage adalah dalam bahasa mandarin. Walaupun anda sebut berdasarkan ejaan hakikatnya bunyi adalah berbeza seperti orang Malaysia sebut 'Guangzhou' walhal orang China sebut 'Guangjhou'. Maka mereka mungkin tidak paham apa yang anda sebut.

3. Setakat ni harga  yang gua survey di beberapa kedai yang menjual sim card adalah berharga antara 100 Yuan - 160 Yuan dan kredit di dalam terdapat 80 Yuan. Boleh dapat 100 Yuan

4. Semua harga yang diletak adalah harga muka, masih boleh  dirunding hatta harga penginapan di hotel pun masih boleh dirunding.

5. Orang China memang suka berniaga, di mana sahaja pun boleh berniaga hatta di kawasan tepi jalan atau dalam pusat membeli belah. Rentang sahaja kain dan letak barang yang hendak di jual

6 Pengangkutan utama adalah MRT , masih terdapat pengangkutan awam lain seperti Bas, Teksi dan Skuter Tuk Tuk  15Yuan - 20 Yuan sekali jalan. ( sekuter yang telah dimodified). Untuk pelancong gua sarankan Teksi dan MRT kerana harga murah.  Teksi siap dengan riset sekali dan apabila lampu menyala atas bumbung menandakan tiada penumpang tetapi teksi paling susah dapat kerana selalu penuh.

7. Makanan halal sebenarnya ada di mana-mana sekitar bandar Guangzhou cuma limited sahaja dan orang tempatan tidak faham akan restoran/makanan halal. So susah kalau tanya di mana restoran halal unless mereka muslim. Mereka tidak paham perkataan 'general' dalam Islam seperti halal, solat, mosque atau musollah dll, Hanya dalam bahasa Mandarin sahaja.

8. Mereka berjalan laju kerana mengejar masa dan train METRO kerana setiap masa itu penting bagi mereka

9. Mereka berkerja siang dan malam tanpa mengira waktu terutama peniaga. Apatah lagi cuti jauh sekali kecuali yang bekerja di pejabat di mana Sabtu dan Ahad mereka cuti.

10. Masalah orang miskin dan peminta sedekah adalah masalah dunia sejagat. Di Guangzhou juga ada tidak kira tua atau muda. Orang gelandangan juga boleh lihat apa bila tibanya waktu malam di mana mereka tidur kebanyakannya di depan pintu bangunan. Tetapi yang sedihnya adalah orang muda yang sihat tubuh badan meminta sedekah dengan menulis pada kertas ' Tiada wang itu pulang' berhampiran hentian bas pada hakikatnya mereka ini menipu , Itu lah yang telah diberitahu oleh rakan gua di sana.

11 Di sana ada penyeluk saku di mana gua ditegurkan oleh tempatan supaya saya simpa barang saya dalam sling bag yang saya bawa dan pastikan ia berzip.

12. Apa yang di sampaikan oleh gua punya local friends bahawa mereka ini bertuhankan duit, tiada agama iaitu 70 - 80 % tiada agama . Oleh sebab itu banyak penipuan seperti telur palsu, susu bayi yang tercemar dengan bahan kimia, minyak masak yang digunakan berulang-ulang kali dan lain-lain lagi.

13. kenderaan motosikal diharamkan bagi kegunaan orang biasa kerana motosikal menyebabkan pencemaran udara. Hanya basikal elektrik dibenarkan untuk laluan jalan raya dan mereka mempunyai laluan khas untuk basikal di jalan raya

14.Mereka masih mempunyai sifat belas kasihan pada orang tua di mana gua sendiri lihat depan di dalam MRT di mana mereka memberi tempat duduk pada orang tua.

15.Kalau di Indonesia terkenal dengan Teh Botol , tetapi di China terkenal pelbagai jenis teh. Mereka sendiri suka minum teh dan akan hidangkan teh untuk tetamu. Yang menarik tentang teh ini adalah dari daun yang belum diproses menjadi serbuk berbanding orang Malaysia hidangkan teh yang telah diproses menjadi serbuk teh.

16.Semasa gua di sana berusan jual beli barang, mereka melayani gua dan kawan gua dengan teh hijau. Nak kata beli barang tak lah banyak but maybe kami pandai 'gebang' bahasa mandarin dan mix bahasa inggeris hehehe.

17 Susah nak jumpa Massage Center di sana even signage berbentuk tapak kaki pun tiada walhal di Malaysia bersepah dengan billboard yang besar dari jauh sudah nampak.

18 Selepas jam 8 malam kebanyakan tempat menjadi sunyi dan biasanya kedai sudah tutup di waktu begini kecuali di kawasan Beijing Lui dan kedai makan.

19 Apabila meraikan tetamu mereka suka menyediakan perlbagai juadah dan 'portion' banyak. Gua  makan sampai kenyang kerana tidak mahu membazir walhal bagi mereka tidak apa kalau tidak habis bermakna makanan yang dihidangkan cukup untuk tetamu.

20.Mereka juga adalah negara serba canggih dan moden. Mereka mempunyai menara iaitu Gungzhou antara yang tertinggi di dunia. Yang paling menarik sekali di International Airport Guangzhou terdapat kemudahan 'charge battery' di mana anda hanya perlu bawa handphone sahaja dan cucuk pada wayar yang disediakan.

Jangan lupa bawa air paip jika anda tidak selesa menggunakan tisu selepas menunaikan hajat. Itu sudah menjadi budaya mereka.Air paip memang tiada dalam tandas awas.Tisu kadang-kadang ada kadang tidak ada tetapi biasanya ada.

Barang lama ada nilai

Petang tadi gua singgah Cash Converters berdekatan rumah gua saje cuci-cuci mata mana tau ada barang baik. Belek-belek gua terjumpa CD lagu Dewa 19 original alaaa murah jer 6 hengget so gua beli. Ikutkan boleh jer tak yah beli sebab gua dah ada dah dalam format MP3 yang gua download tapi sebabkan cd original gua beli. Alaaa siapa tak pernah buat download lagu di internet , bohonglah kalau tak pernah buat hehehe by the way jangan buat yer dan gua tak sokong cetak rompak. Kalau korang nak buat itu korang punya hal. Gua ingat ingat cd ini ok la bila main ada problem pulak adoiiiii nasib tak semua lagu rosak tapi ingat setiap pembelian ada 3 hari jaminan bergantung pada barang tertentu.

Sebenarnya macam-macam  ada seperti barang elektrik dan elektronik, pinggan mangkuk tapi gua lebih suka mencari barang-barang rare yang susah nak jumpa dan ada nilai lagi tetapi susah lah nak jumpa macam dalam cerita PAWN SHOP dalam astro. Gua memang suka layan tonton dengan bapak gua , kalau dia ada mesti dia cerita pasal USA maklumlah dia dulu belajar kat sana so macam-macam cerita tentang USA.

barang yang lama jangan dikenang

Mamee Jonker House

Siapa tidak kenal Mamee? Pasti semua kenal mamee kerana sejak kecil lagi kerana pasti kita membeli makanan ringan apabila pulang dari sekolah atau apabila kita singgah kedai runcit pasti kita nak beli jajan atau makanan ringan. Harga pun yang saya ingat 30 sen ketika zaman sekolah , sekarang tidak pasti harga Mamee berapa.

Serba ringkas tentang sejarah Mamee, sebelum saya hanya tahu Mamee ini dari Melaka sahaja dan apabila melepasi tol ke Ayer Keroh pasti akan melalui jalan yang akan melepasi Kilang Mamee yang tersergam indah dan iklan pelbagai produk Mamee. Untuk pengetahuan anda mamee adalah produk Malaysia oleh itu kita harus berbangga dengan produk Malaysia ini . Mamee telah memula operasi pada tahun 1972 oleh pengasasnya iaitu Datuk Pang Chin Hin di Ayer Keroh, Melaka. Sekarang produk Mamee telah berada di beberapa negara ASEAN , Australia dan lain-lain negara lagi.

Bagi mendekatkan dengan masyarakat bagi tujuan kesedaran (Awareness Program) Mamee telah memperkenal nama Mamee Jonker House di Jonker Walk, Bandar Melaka. Terdapat 5 seksyen  di Mamee Jonker House iaitu : 

1. Merchandise Store 
Sebagai pusat jualan produk mamee dan juga cenderamata seperti t-shirt , cawan dan key chain.

2. Mamee Cafe
Tempat makan untuk pengunjung dengan minuman dan hidangan berasaskan produk/bahan Mamee dalam setiap hidangan. Menu kebanyakan adalah berasa menu ASIAN atau Malaysia Taste.

3. Mamee World
Apabila anda memasuki ke Mamee World umpama kembali ke masa silam untuk melihat kembali bagaimana mamee bermula dari 1972 sehingga sekarang.

4. Doodle Noodle
Di mana anda mencorakkan dan mewarnakan sendiri Mamee Cup anda dan menentu sendiri menu/perisa apa untuk mamee anda dalam cup itu nanti. Semua proses dilakukan secara manual dan dibantu oleh pekerja di situ.

5. Lil Monster Kitchen 
Lil Monster Kitchen untuk pengunjung belajar bagaimana hendak membuat mee (noodle) bermula dari uli tepung sehingga menjadi mee. Semuanya di buat sendiri dan di bantu dengan mesin yang mudah di gunakan.

Dengan adanya Mamee Jonker House dapat mendekatkan masyarkat kepada dunia Mamee dan secara tidak lansung menjadi antara daya tarikan pelancong di Jonker Walk, Melaka. Saya boleh katakan sekurang-sekurangnya kita harus masuk ke dalam Mamee Jonker House untuk mengetahui sejarah Mamee dan bagaimana Mamee ini dihasilkan.


Untuk maklumat lanjut boleh rujuk di mameejonkerhouse.com

p/s : Nanti nak pergi sekali lagi untuk beli t-shirt. sebelum ni makan tengah hari kat situ jer .
