First Official Interview

As an accounting student, I had learnt a subject all-related to interview for a semester. Everything that I supposed to know about an interview had been taught to me. I've taken notes, I learnt to make resumes, few types of them...it's all to prepare the student like me to the real-working world after I graduated... Yes,I'm all prepared.....
Or at least I thought so...

Couple months after I finished my bachelor degree, while most of my friend had been searching high and low for jobs, I decided to stay at home and enjoy my freedom first. Well... I've had fun,so much fun. Then I decided to join the hunt for job. My oh my...

My first ever official interview, if I had to rate it... I'll gave myself a 3.5 out of 10. Man, I felt like an idiot. Almost ran out of the office in shame! ==_=="

The position: Human Resource Manager

I knew nothing about this position and the silly me have not done any research on that matter.. Minutes before I my turn, I asked Min to Google it out for me...
To make it worst, they asked me about the 'Akta Pekerja' which of course I have no idea what it's about. And I'm being brutally honest with them. Telling them with straight face that it's my first time hearing the Akta..... so on and so on...

And that's it... lesson learned!!!!
To do before job interview.
1.Prepare all the required documents.
2.Get to know the position,if u don't know,ask around,google it...
3.Be prepared to answer some of ridiculous Qs.
4.Confident is the key. Put your game face.
5.Be honest.If u don't know,then u don't know...don't make things up.
6.Practise makes perfect! Practise your lines, the ' tell me about yourself' answer.. because if u don't..ur mind could very easily went blank... like mine did.

Birdsnest Hostel in Hongdae

DISCLAIMER: BIRDSNEST HOSTEL HAS MOVED TO A NEW PLACE UNDER THE NAME OF 'THIS IS.. GUESTHOUSE'. THE NEW LOCATION IS JUST CLOSE BY. DROP BY ANY QUESTION.

It's May already. Been couple of months since my trip to Korea,  and I've been missing that country ever since.  Ahh,I need to go there again and stay longer and explore more! ^_^

So this post is gonna be about the Birdsnest Hostel,  that I stayed while I'm in Seoul.  It's my second hostel after Namu GH.
Owned and run by Mr DongUk Lee. It's a hostel that he just set up after coming back from his RTW trip.
We first arrived at the hostel without any reservation,on one cold day.. Luckily, DongUk  attended us. We asked whether any rooms available and he said yes.
Later he lead us to our dorm room.



We opted for the mixed dorm, 18000 won per person/night after 10% winter-discount. However, he told us to stay in the female dorm,with the same price. Thanks! Usually female only dorm a bit pricy,but he's so nice to let us.

Going to YG Entertainment Building

What a trip to Seoul,South Korea without ever going to see   THE YG Entertainment HQ building for the YG stans?  Be it VIP,LUCKY 7 or BLACKJACK (just naming some),  even seeing the building itself brings joy & excitement to us,right?  Let alone being lucky enough to see the stars up close :D
Going to YG building almost becoming my daily routine,tehee.
*no, i'm not a sasaeng fans*  It's hard not to when you know where it is. Because,it's like,  "this is my only chance to see and experience the awesomeness first hand". Actually I had tried walking from Hongdae to Hapjeong too.  It's not too far though, yes, I did reached YG Building, but it's time & energy consuming. ^^  Best to go by subway or bus, or better taxi.  Haven't tried going by bus or taxi,just subway.  So,here it is.
Take subway Line 2 (Green). Off at Hapjeong Station, exit 8. It's about 5-10minutes from the station,depends on your pace. Hehe,like mine,I bet yours will be as lig…

Hello! The semester is about to kick-off for some students, especially for those SPM-holders. So, as the senior student,I am, welcoming you guys to the Uni life! Please expect fun time learning,meeting and making friends, and great memories to be created as you go along this process.^^

If you happen to be accepted into UiTM Machang Campus,ahah! Then again,i welcome you! Allow me to simply explain about this campus.
UiTM Machang Campus is my current Uni.well actually it WAS my campus while i was doing my Diploma in Accountancy several years ago. After graduating, i was again accepted to further my study at this campus. ^^

It has been wonderful several years for me. Even though the campus is located quite far away from civilization, but that's the special thing about it! When i stated quite far,please do not expect anything like fast food restaurants or shopping mall or even supermarket. The most we have near the campus is 7-Eleven!! (^_~)
