Significance of Completing MBA

Since young, I never agree getting good education guarantees better career opportunities. Maybe this is because my late mother never make such guarantee nor force us to get good grades. However, I still strive for excellence to prove to myself that I am equally good. I was so focus to challenge myself academically when I was young to the extent that I never bother to plan ahead. When I completed Form 5 education (then Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia), I started to work part-time in a restaurant while waiting for my result. Never had I thought of making plans for my…

Grassroots Innovation Movement & Perspectives

Grassroots innovation is a terminology where many Malaysians have misinterpret as rural innovation, including some of my younger colleagues in Malaysian Innovation Foundation (Yayasan Inovasi Malaysia – YIM), a non-profit organization entrusted to support the development of grassroots innovation in the country. This misinterpretation might arise due to the incomplete transfer of knowledge about grassroots innovation movement obtained from 2011 YIM’s visit to India’s National Innovation Foundation, a non-profit organization that drives grassroots innovation movement primarily to support rural communities, particularly poor farmers with novel untapped knowledge.

My Journey from Entrepreneurship to Employment

I’ve always been very independent since young owing to the good upbringing of my parent. While in secondary school, I did part-time job in garment factory almost on weekly basis to earn some pocket money.

Therefore, I completed my LCCI Diploma in Accounting, LCCI Higher Diploma in Accounting, Institute of Chartered Secretaries & Administrators professional…

The Power of Internet Business

There are lesser career opportunities nowadays and we often hear tens of thousands employees laid off due to global economy slowdown and also the increasing use of technology to replace labour intensive jobs. Yes, this is happening in Malaysia too especially in the area that I work in – Cyberjaya. I always hear companies near my workplace starting to retrench employees and some even shrink their operation in Cyberjaya and move their facility to a cheaper location. The challenging economy is worrying and creates tension and stress especially on those under employment. Many are worrying of losing their jobs and start…

Everyday is New in South Africa

Being a single mother, life is always challenging for me. I am not saying it is tough but the accountability towards my son brings me more decisions to make everyday. Struggling between career and family, very often, I’ll choose family over everything else. I guess this is how Chinese tradition is observed. (Yes, I am a typical traditional Chinese woman) I think all working mothers will somehow or rather agree with me that performing duty as a mother at the same time delivering “never-ending work demand from bosses” are stressful. Regardless of whether you are in business or…
