One day in Genting Highlands

Today, we went to Genting Highlands for a day visit. My wife's brother-in-law sponsored the trip. Started our journey at 10.00 am. The day was drizzling little bit and we drove very slowly to escape unwanted skidding. There was a heavy mist and hardly to see. Reached there around 11.30 am. Nicely got parking under the One World Hotel. Unfortunately due to heavy mist, we cannot play outdoor games.

Just to share some photos…

100% Sampling Audit Work Is Value-Added Process??

The Risk Assessment (RA) exercise is quite tough since it involves participation from the management’s view of point on risk assessment exercise, existing controls and managment action plan. The RA is to provide information on the business plans, KPI, organization chart, processes and activities, P&P, financial information and so on. But the most important is the business objectives of the each management entity in the organisation.

Based on the business objectives, what is the main risks that prevent the achievement of the business objectives. What are the controls that have been established to control, mitigate, manage and transfer the risks. These controls are very important elements to determine the rating of the risks whether it is high, moderate or low. So, some risks are beyond the management control. These risks are called ‘inherent’ risks.

Friend that i remember...Zamzar

from left Zamri, Jaafar, Zamzar, me and Halimy

Today, I received a SMS from my former colleague that one of my former staff is in critical condition and requested to recite Surah Yassin for him. His name is Mohd Zamzar Abd Manap. A good employee who always try to learn and contribute the best to his work. Pray to Allah swt to give the strength. 

I immediately called Jaafar, one of his former colleagues in Seremban to know how serious he was. Jaafar told me that Zamzar was fell sick last year and his condition continue deteriorated until last week, he was admitted. Last Tuesday he was released because his condition was getting serious and sliding away. His brother brought his back to his home town in Kuala Pilah.

I feel very sad to hear that all this while I thought he is ok because the last time I remembered I saw him when I went to Seremban last year. We had lunch together with other team members. That was my last visit to see my team in Seremban. The team leader Rosmah had left to other unit in Bangi. Zamzar transferred to other unit in Seremban. Jaafar is still hanging there.

This year I managed to call him once accidentally and he told me that he was very ill and hardly to work.  I told him to take care himself and control the food intake, and be patient and always 'berdoa' to Allah swt.

Zamzar, I hope and pray that you must stay strong…

Some is considered best friends, colleague, normal friends, chit-chat friends, happy hours friends, crazy friends, lunch hour friends and enemy friends.

Why my last category of friend I said Enemy Friend.

He smiled at me and told me that I should not be worry anymore seems that right now, the H1N1 is not a major threat anymore. The H1N1 virus has depleted from the face of the world, the doctor told me.
