PAM’s Planner Soiree happened last weekend but I was not there

The Planner Addict Malaysia  (PAM) committee members organized a 12 hour soiree last weekend, offering workshops, talks, food and swag bags for attendees. The fee was appropriate but Timing was not really on my side. It’s not that I had a big event happening. It’s just one of those Weekend Dilemma for a woman with hobbies.

It’s one of those guilty feelings of having to leave your kids to attend something non compulsory. Especially when you have just attended another one the weekend before. Or you’re scheduled for another weekend activity without the kids in 2 weeks time. To be honest, I don’t really know how to explain.

Somehow it is fine to work on something at home with the kids around you despite them probably on a video game or just messing up your folded laundry. ha ha ha. 

The Planner Soiree welcomed kids to the event too but with no other adult with me to help watch the kids while I do my thing, it was not possible. Plus, I don’t think both Ninie and Ee would enjoy being confined in a strange place for 12 hours. Anyway, I heard that the Swag Bag was a hit. I’d really like to see what is inside. If you happen to be a fellow PAM member, with a blog, writing about the event, please share me the link yahhh..

In the meantime, this is an attempt of me making a Plan With Me video using my Samsung A7. Its damn short. The length is enough for an IG post. ha ha.  I need to find a better angle. Better pics and music. We will build up on that skill InsyaAllah..

Change demands patience

Remember the promo video I made for our upcoming Family Day?

Well, let’s just say that the precious hours I spent creating it over the weekend seems to be of no value to some people. Despite the date and venue has been pre-authorised prior to my appointment as the president of the programme – we are expected to make changes to the plan.

To the drama kings and queens, if you have already got an idea of what you’d like to do for our family day, then by all means  … such suggestions should be presented to the floor during the meeting. Not after. Not behind my back. tetiba condemn. tetiba tak puas hati.. nak gempak tapi tak nak bayar. spesis mcm ni memang aku tak faham.

Tackling the Problem

There are a few ways on how I can react to the news.

I can be a dick (not that I have one, perhaps I need to surgically attach one), be oblivious to the drama, go ahead with the original plan and suffer a boycott of the event.

I can also be a witch. Cancel everything and refuse to carry out any look-alike programmes for the whole year. Or if I morph into a bitchy witch, then a hiatus in clinic social activities for the next half decade. No jamuan raya whatsoever.

In the end, I choose to be an angel after a few hours of dissing ( I am human after all). Let go. Clear my head. And start all over again. At least it made me learn more about the dynamics of staff relationship within the clinic. I do know that the walls have ears. It seems that they can talk too.

HOBOMINCI

Consequently, my HoboMinci needs a revamp. I will need a big sticker to cover that FDKKC part. Thankfully I have bought new die-cuts, washi and what not from Lootersbox the other day. Through the most trustable shopping app in Msia i.e. Shopee.

Lootersbox is an online based shop that sells planner/journal related stuff and these peeps are based in Melaka. Oh how I wish that they would open a store like Stickerrific one day and hold workshops! I would be a regular patron. Sokay,  I will include them in my prayers to be successful and own a physical store. InsyaAllah. 

As of the matter earlier, I guess I just have to be patient. Keep my mouth shut. Refocus and re-prioritise. I suppose we could repurpose certain ideas. Not all are redundant.

*yawn*

HoboMinci and side kicks

Salam and Hi. For those who have not known yet I affectionately call my hobonichi my Hobominci.

Yesterday I took the opportunity to declutter and rearrange the furniture and planner related stuff I have in my Minci Cave. As expected, there’s a lot of dust. I sneezed almost all the time but I managed to get the place in order about 70% I still have another 30% to go today. Naturally I got distracted looking into my washi tapes journalling cards and the thousand many things I have at my pretty table.

Later at night, I get to update my memory book in this particular floral book which was given by Zawaniz. I selected my photos from my archives in Google photos and that was when I realised that I don’t really have a lot of pictures with my husband. So it was very difficult to choose a photo of the both of us to go inside the book. In a way, this will remind me to snap more pictures of the both of us together.

I printed the photos on an A4 glossy paper using the Brother’s printer. I think I need to re adjust the printing settings to get the best quality photos.

Spend the best 2 hours in my Minci Cave. Today is another day of cleaning and sorting. What an awesome way to spend my Sunday.

My word for 2019

2018 was hard. New baby. New workplace. New job. And nature of work.

Banyak makan hati. Banyak marah. Penat. I had to pretend I do not care or ignore certain hurtful remarks especially when I wanted to start dieting or pick up an exercise. It was easier to be alone. Or just keep things to myself. Because well, I am just not interested in some of them opinions.

I can see that it will be the same this year. I need to choose my companions well. Who I spend time with or follow on Instagram. I need to set goals for myself. I need to find my JOY. Re-enact my PASSION. Cultivate my MOTIVATION.

Hence this year my word is BURN.

God knows whether I go around with this BURNing desire to be the THIS GIRL IS ON FIRE!!!  on a positive note all the time or end up kena bakar. HA HA HA.

I will be playing multiple roles in 2019. Both at work and outside. My extra curricular activities seem more interesting though. Haha. I have my doTERRA.AOF family, my Back TO School (BTS) committee buddies, HyperDime, HoboMinci, Wanita Besi Eropah clan and many more adventures. InsyaAllah. ha ha.. I mean, do not get me wrong.. I love being a medical doctor. Especially the clinical aspect of it. However, the passion in treating my patients is frequently dampened nowadays by the non clinical parts of it – percayalah, benda2 mcm tuh mmg ada.. sometimes, it gives me a wadahek headache.

So here is for 2019. Lets see if I could take more pictures of myself too.

Paskal (2018)

I should start making a list of Malay movies to watch If You Want To Start Watching Malay Movies. Paskal would be one of my recommendations.

Image result for paskal

Its an RM10 million budget movie used wisely. As viewers, we get to learn a thing or two about our elite military team. It is patriotic and I can see a future where this will be a staple movie programme on National TV every 31st August.

The plot was simple. And almost predictable. But it’s Okay coz just how many Malaysian movies can get you to the edge of your seat? Less than 10 aite.. unless you’re a big fan of MIG productions. Which I am not.

Paskal was nostalgic for me as well as it brought on memories of PKBM (L) in secondary school. I can still remember bits of the Gempur Wira song. The pic below is a page from my HoboMinci. Paskal deserved a mention in it.

A TEAM IS ONLY AS STRONG AS ITS WEAKEST LINK

To be elite team, the members must be elite as a person too. And can work as a team. I think everyone should walk out of the movie knowing that.
