Lead By Example


Lead by example? Talk the walk or walk the talk?
After I read a column in our local tabloid, The Sun, decided to write a complaint letter to the CEO that the columnist had mentioned, which he said is also his close friend. This is because, he quoted, both of them praised Amazon’s high quality on customer service.

I half expected I would get any reply from this CEO from a leading online recruitment company in this region, when I know usually one’s high approval on something might not necessarily apply to his own organization, especially when we already have some awful experience dealing with them, which further leaves me with no illusion.  

This, is how the corresponding letter looks like:

Forget “Sorry” - Goodbye is Definitely the Harder Word


Two years and ten months.

Time passes really quickly when you have a job. I still remember the day I came in for an interview with my immediate superior, Ms. Norana Johar, scared as hell, not sure about what I should and shouldn’t say. I think I tried on about more or less a gazillion outfits that day, before choosing a combination of a black skirt with a dark blue/black top. Exciting colors, huh? Fresh out of Uni I was in a rush to start working then, and I must say, working at FingerTec was one of the best rash decisions I’ve ever made in my life.

After all, if I didn’t choose this job, I wouldn’t have the two strands of precious white hair now protruding out proudly from my scalp, occasionally waving hello to my parents and relatives, reminding them that my purpose in life should be looking for a husband.

Of course, I am only kidding: Its three strands.

#trendinginreallife is Harder than Most People Think


Follow other's footsteps, or make your own?
“I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that brand,” might sound like it comes from a conceited person but the truth is, most of us apply this rule in our lives in some way or other. Every decision made on our choices and purchases defines who we are and our priorities in life. Eva Mendes or Pamela Anderson would rather go cloth-less than wearing anything made from animal on their bodies, I reckon. A CEO of a listed company definitely wants to be seen driving the latest model of a BMW or an Audi and buy a property in a high-profile neighborhood. An environmentalist would prefer a Prius than a car that boasts on horsepowers. Whether you agree or not, we are continuously branding ourselves every step of our way, building an image for the world to see.

In professional and personal lives, we constantly project perceptions by the brands we choose and, vice versa, perceive other people by the brands they choose.

User Interface Defines User-Friendliness



Innovators are betting on new interfaces to drive computing power
Since the foray of personal computers into our life during the last three decades, monitors, keyboards and mouses have remained as the most essential interface devices for human to interact with computers. Even though we observed some minor improvements like monitors from bulky to flat, to higher resolution; keyboards from big to smaller; and mice from cabled to wireless; the nature of the medium stayed put.

It remained that way until computing power were compressed into tablets and smartphones, where the new human interface started to observe a real change, and the change is obviously welcomed and quickly situated the once dominant PC-era to a post-PC era.

Still contemplating on TimeTec Cloud? Fret not.
Cloud system is the trend these days. A growing number of companies are deploying cloud-computing systems in their operations and many more are considering the same move. According to a recent study of 1,300 U.S and U.K executives, conducted by Rackspace Hosting with support from Manchester Business School in the UK, 58% of the respondents agree that cloud system is cost-saving through avoiding IT infrastructure cost, while 48% of them agreed that cloud systems give them the ability to scale up cost effectively. That, amongst many other reasons, is one of the important of why cloud should be implemented.
