Dream Dream Dream

A short conversation with one developer friend on my way to a meeting made me decided to spare some time today to day dream. Although I am comfortable with my current job, position and the pay ... my inner self kadang2 meronta-ronta nak join balik the private sector. Anyway, sometimes listening to my developer friends relating how soft or competitive the housing market today can be a pushing factor too.

But recalling an article on Datin Freida Pilus, the founder and Chairperson of the Sri Cempaka Schools, on the Edge last Monday, I was quite inspired, perhaps motivated that a former civil servant could be Woman Entrepeneur of the Year 2008. Sacrifice her 13 years of service to open a private school in 1983, just because her sons started schoolling and she was dissatisfied with the conditions in national schools plus realised that there was a potential in private education ... look at her now! Gaji sebulan pun dah boleh support pencen 20 tahun hehehe.

At least she shortlisted her dream to only ONE whereas me ... sekejap nak jadi chef, sekejap nak jadi photographer, sekejap nak jadi entertainer (yang nie confirm angan2 mat jenin). The truth is I really want to be a modern and professional ginger farmer. Original idea patented to my mum.

I bought this book 2 weeks ago at MPH mid valley. I remembered when my dad returned from a working trip to Australia many years back he bought me some cream and beauty products from lavender after visiting a lavender farm. So I was really amazed that we can create many by-products from a plant like essential oils, perfumes, creams, soaps etc etc.

Ginger root, is widely used in Asian and Western countries, either in its original form as a delicacy, medicine or spice OR as essential oils in cosmetics or aromatherapy (massage).

Hmmm .... should I make the sacrifice?

Nothing wrong in dreaming, J, for it opens up a world of possibilities. Night dreams can even be an unconscoious projections of desire or fear, even revelation....

But planning to go into the private sector is no dream. A modern farmer can be as successful as an educationist, a professional photogtapher, a beauty consultnt etc. But let self-fufillment be u r goal, not money. The richer a person is the richer he or she wants to be. Org kaya selalu lokek...

Anyway, wealth doen't ensure happiness. Some say happiness lies in sharing..whatever. U agree?

(Sigh!) The problem is ... it's normally based on monetary gain, financial freedom ...

rumah urut..hahaha! Ko ingat kita pernah potong rambut di tingkat 2, area Sinsuran? Then one day, we went there again for another cut? Tho at that time sudah pukul 6 - 7 gitu.. Bila kita ketuk pintu, they looked suspiciously scared? Dengan senyum pucat diorang bilang 'Kedai gunting rambut cuma siang seja..tiada waktu malam..'
Oooo..bila ingat, aku bersyukur kita tidak ditarik masuk ke dalam kedai. Sia-sia dikecimpungkan dalam industri jual beli body...hehehe..

The problem with money is when u don't have it. It's never enough, though, no matter how much u have.

Tapi soal financial freedom amat penting. Mengikut Robert Kiyosaki, u'll never attain it so long as u work 4 money and not let money work 4 u. His formula: work hard, set some money aside, invest in promising venture, buy up the company, let it make the money 4 u. Read, Rich Dad Poor Dad.

U r still young and can do it. Don't wait forD.Trump. Save up and let the savings work 4 u.

Yalah, true... never come around to get the book. But adalah mcm get 1-2 tips from the book seperti ... make money works 4 u. Ini memang I advocate sangat.
