Sensei’s Visit


Training/seminars are essential to equip us as a team in line with our corporate’s vision. We excel individually, no doubt about it. How much more if we advance in sync? Possibilites are limitless! Two of our colleagues from Dubai and Abu Dhabi visited us to update our brains with corporate’s CRM tool. They’re very kind … Continue reading

Reward for Grumbling


Lately, I posted about something good that’s going to happen, well here it is! Talkin’ about motivation to work.  I’m struggling with injustice in our office, and WP is my outlet to rant 🙂 I even decided to quit my job (drafted resignation letter twice, felt so good in doing so, and regretfully archiving these).  And … Continue reading

Why is it so tough to move forward?


Lately I’m pondering about this question. Then my mind sails afloat the sea of thoughts. I then find myself trolling around scenarios of “what if?” “why not?” exchange – like a tennis ball.  Tradeoff is the main factor. If I move forward, I will leave point “A” and embrace point “B.” There’s no turning back, … Continue reading

Another Day in the Office


I am starting my day slowly, sipping my hot coffee, checking email… nothing new. I hate surprises. I was caught off-guard with our client’s requirements that I failed to see! Hairs on the back of my forehead started to rise. I knew it, something’s wrong. My once slow start accelerated to higher gear. Next thing … Continue reading

A good day to visit


Beneath a cloudy horizon spreads a gulf mena. Once was a scorched desert turned to be a melting pot of oil so rich that it paved way for this region’s development. Dubai, here i come – again. It’s not so (annoyingly) hot on this season. With 23°c, feels like a tropical country i came from: … Continue reading

On Leaving


It’s a typical business scene that someone will be leaving. As we greet with courtesy newcomers, so we pat shoulders of those who leave. You can hear remarks such as “good luck in your career,” “we’ll see each other again,” “don’t you dare to come back!” (i like the last comment..hehe..) I can’t help but … Continue reading

One Fine Night


This is a typical thursday-night setup. People are gathering around in one room and will talk for hours. Such happy hours are usually accompanied with liquors. And since it’s prohibited here in Qatar and we’re all good boys, we settled in bottles of “Barbican” instead, a non-alcoholic malt. Companionship like this relieves us from homesickness, … Continue reading

The Art of Running


I have a goal of shaping down my tummy. Since I’m in Qatar, a land overflows with foods and pastry, I can’t help but to gain some weight. It doesn’t really matter to me because of my slim body built. But seeing myself in a mirror, slim guy with round belly is not attractive :). … Continue reading

Dayoff Overload


I have two days off here in Qatar, friday and saturday. Sometimes I went with my officemates, but it’s better be during night time because of scorching heat in the desert. When vanity strikes, I climb in the rooftop of our accommodation and take few photos with my phone. It’s not exactly a scenery to … Continue reading
