Are we running today?

Happy weekend everyone! The weather this morning is pretty amazing. It's beautiful, cold and a bit wet. I decided to go out for a run today with the intention to get at least 5,000 steps before noon. 

I love running. It's the best and cheapest way to stay fit and healthy. What better way to feel alive other than listening to the sound of your heartbeat.
I ran for about thirty minutes and I have managed to get at least 7,000 steps before 9:00 am and I burned about 162 active calories. Not bad for 30 minutes of hard work.





After I've finished running, I walk around the park to capture a few photos of the day with my phone. It's amazing what images you can capture when you look hard enough.



Have a beautiful and amazing weekend everyone.

#thursday3 [17.11.1016]

Today was such an interesting day for me. I got stuck in a horrific traffic jem. It took me more than one hour to arrive at my office. 

HERE ARE MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK


1. I am lusting over Macbook Pro 13" with touch bar. Suddenly I felt like I am in the middle of history. Things are changing and a lot of people are resistant to change including our dependance to usb slots and SD card slot. I wish everything work seamlessly with one another wirelessly. That would be a cool thing to experience, like life on Star Trek Voyager.

2. I already finished reading The Couple Next Door and I really enjoy the book so much. Now I am reading The Sister and I See You. 

3. I am finally at peace with my planner. Bullet Journal has given me the freedom to be me and I have stop obsessing over binders and any other hardcopy planners. I am still using my iPlanner on my iPad as a complement to my Bullet Journal. I am still waiting for 2017 iPlanner from digitallyspeaking.net

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." - rukristin.com

The Devil's Work // Book Review

I am in love with this book! I've finished reading this book in less than two weeks. I just love how Mark Edwards can write an ordinary story and put an evil spin to it.



What this book is about?

"A gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Follow You Home and The Magpies.

It was the job she had dreamed of since childhood. But on her very first day, when an unnerving encounter drags up memories Sophie Greenwood would rather forget, she wonders if she has made a mistake. A fatal mistake.
What is her ambitious young assistant really up to? And what exactly happened to Sophie’s predecessor? When her husband and daughter are pulled into the nightmare, Sophie is forced to confront the darkest secrets she has carried for years.
As her life begins to fall apart at work and at home, Sophie must race to uncover the truth about her new job…before it kills her.excerpt from amazon.com


What do I think?

What I like about the book is how simple and ordinary lives of Sophie Greenwood and her office mate become a nightmare over shorter period of time. 

I really like that after all the books I've read by Mark Edwards, he can still surprised me. I definitely did not expect who was behind all those horrible things that happened in Sophie's lives.

I have an ebook and an audible version of this book and I enjoyed both format very much. 

I really like that the author included a character from this other book in this one. To me he has managed to create a world that feels so real to me.

One thing I learned from this book is not to judge people by what I think or suspect they did/do without having all the facts. Jumping to conclusion is definitely not good especially when you are new and don't really understand the culture of your new work environment. It can do more harm than good.


I highly recommend this book. This definitely made it to my top favorite book of this year


I can't get enough of Mark Edwards and I always looking forward to more books from him.


Currently reading - The Sister by Louise Jensen

Around the Office

I was feeling sad and depressed lately. I just don't have the passion for work anymore. I used to love going to work and do the things that I do at work. Lately everything feels mundane and routine.

So today I decided to go around my office and captured a few pictures of what life is like at the moment. Things can changed dramatically when new management comes. I really want to remember what "work" look like right now.

Before anything else, I started the day by climbing the stairs to 18th floor. This is one of the reason that makes me happy to drive to work. I feel lucky that I work in a building with an open air stairs. The view from the top is spectacular.

I started the day by checking my bullet journal and my planner. I have been trying bullet journal system this month and I am loving it so far. I can't believe how flexible the system is.

If I am not in a meeting, I will definitely attend training.

Attending Big Data for management training this morning. It's kinda dry subject for me. I just can't seems to grabs the big data concept and what kind of problem it's going to solve.

During fifteen minutes break, I am taking a stroll on the balcony. I love soak in sun before noon. It feels so good to feel the heat of the morning sun on  your face.

It's only 11:00 am and I can't wait for lunch.

It's time for my morning (not so morning) coffee to heat up my body. I just love this beautiful mug from Typo. I got this at RM10 with purchased. So pretty.

Bathroom time

It looks so calm. Most of the people are busy working.

This week on my calendar. I just can't finished up my SKT yet because I don't have all the information at hand. I need to finalise every thing by this week.

Lunch time - the girls at my office. Yeah to girl power.

I am so happy to see the board is almost empty. It's time to wrap things up for 2016 and start planning for 2017.

I just wish that I have taken the time to document my life at the office a few years back. Life definitely was different. People come and go, technology changes and life was moving at a different pace back then.
