Genting Highlands Trip

Just for your information, Cat and I went to Genting Highlands last Saturday. We stayed there for a night and we have a lot of fun there, playing in the Outdoor Theme Park.

I went for all the rides including Space Shot, Corkscrew, Spinner, Cyclone, Go-kart and some other rides...

My heart jumped out when I was riding Space Shot. For someone who are afraid of height, I am crazy...

For pictures, please stay tune... I am editing the pictures as soon as possible.

Details about me selling myself.

I received a question from a Songie about the meaning of me selling myself...

Don't get me wrong. What I do is completely legal and I would never betrayed myself.

Somehow, I realized that I just need to explain it a little bit further so that there won't be any misunderstanding about me...

The time when I wrote the post about selling myself, I was actually asking my boss to transfer me to another department from the current telesales dept. I was a bit frustrated about myself because I wasn't really selling up to my own expectation. At about the same time, I found out that there is an opening in the marketing dept and after some discussion with my fellow colleagues, I decided to talk to my boss. I prepared a proposal about the way to reengineer the marketing dept.

Later, I was given a small task to do but I didn't do it very well. Somehow, part of my work was able to impress my boss and he decided to offer me a position in the marketing dept.

I am transferring to the marketing dept at the end of the month.

The process of me proposing to my boss to sell my idea is the whole idea of the post on selling myself. I do believe that if I didn't approach my boss about it, I would be stuck in my current position forever or never going to move forward.

That is something that I never want to happen.

So, guys, if you think that you need to do it, just do it. That is the only way that you would be able to stand out from the rest.

Result of Selling Myself

Just want to inform you all that I would be moving to a new department in my current company. I am moving from telesales consultant to become a marketing executive. This is the result of selling myself that I have mentioned previously. I guess I was just lucky to get the chance!
