188 Suites In Need of Justice!

A lot of owners have issues with JMB 188 Suites after 2 years of guaranteed rental income. The new offer of rental income dropped from 6.8% to 3.8%. While the letter showed the splendid results from Fraser since its operation, a lot of owners puzzled why the offers turned to be sour. Nobody knows the reason.

During the 2nd AGM (30th Aug 2017), some owners were prohibited to attend the AGM on the reason that water charges were not being cleared. In fact, the most they can do is you become an observer in the meeting, but not to stop you from attending the AGM. The funniest thing was the committee hold a strata act booklet and showed you the clause that they brutally twisted the fact of per saying clause. What on earth that these people were so daring to fool the owners in a bright sunny day? Were there a lot of hidden or undisclosable agenda behind the scenes?

To many, this is obviously a discrimination. The so called emcee even impolitely asked the owners in harsh way to lodge the report at COB. Owners wondered were they in some sort of ganster meeting. Was this the ethic of conduct as an emcee of the meeting? Was he even reserved the right and authority to bully the owners? Could we call it a criminal? Deep in thought, are JMB the puppet whereby they are supported by some influencers or owners are puppets by blindly paying the management and fees all to support their unreasonable act of conduct?

A fair judgement and treatment is urgently called. Owners are desperately asked for justice!!! JMB, don't ever try to fool or threaten the owners! The society needs a clean and unprejudiced JMB to operate and run the show, not the dirty JMB players with all the silly tricks!

Let's believe the era of brutal JMB operators will soon meet its final destination.

A revolution for property management, desperately!

As an owner of property, I wonder if these questions ever popped into your mind? How could we trust the property management company? Can the operation be more effective? Can the annual report prepared for AGM be more transparent? The question goes on...

I believe some of the owners have encountered same problems like me. Looking at the annual report, especially the financial part, that seems like some unexplained transactions. Why I said so as when we in the meeting requested for a more detailed copy of accounting transaction, it's being ignored by the committees.

Now, since there's condo management fees, could anyone tell me what is secondment charges? Is the condo management fee covered the paid of the stuffs in the office of one particular condo? If that so, when you look at the quality of stuffs in the management office, you will be suspicious that the revenue being paid to them worth the five figure costs?

So, we were told that the management charges and sinking fund that we paid monthly did not afford the upcoming expenses. And, we all forced to accept a rise of 15% on our management charges. It sounded ridiculous but you have no choice!

As you and I may aware that the committee for the property does not receive any paid. However, could you accept a dictatorial joint management body or committee? Are they COMMITTEE or CONNEDMETTEE? With the passion to take care of the interests and benefits of all residences in the first place, but you have no idea what's behind the scene. The agenda brought out in the meeting was in fact being determined, we're just sitting to be notified rather than conducting a discussion and securing the consensus. Whatever suggestions given were easily ignored or turned down by the experienced joint management body or committee.

I was pissed. Later, I found out that this is a norm in almost all property management bodies. I sighed with this situation. I am hoping a hero appears to amend and better the situation. Property management company, sounds to me, like dictators. Residences have no much choice but to blindly accept just everything being reported, including all the fees, charges, and rises. I guess that is why there are a lot of people start ignoring paying the management fees and affected those who are playing by the rules.

I believe property management isn't easy. However, can we at least do it professionally with ethic? Someone out there with expertise in this field, you have a business opportunity right now! That breakthrough is very much relying on you! Perhaps, an artificial intelligence (AI) software or apps could ease our life's frustration!

We want a revolution for property management! Desperately!

单座,能下厨的吗?

上个星期天,老妈子说朋友相约去吃晚餐。朋友说两个人的份,很难煮食、麻烦。老妈子把约给推了,原因是想为难得回家的咱们尝尝住家味。谢了,妈子,您是最棒的!

现今社会,要做的,只要一个理由,不要做的,可就有百个千个理由。你说,一个人的食量,可以下厨的吗?

在身为后天小厨师的我看来,一点都不难,在于你有心无心的。一个人的时候可以煮些什么?一个人的时候,必须委屈单一色菜色吗?可以两菜一汤吗?告诉你,绝对可以!只要你不懒惰,料理款式可是多姿多彩,什么菜色都有可能。。

买个迷你自动紫砂锅,挑选个人喜欢的药材汤包,鸡肉或猪肉过了水加入,一锅汤就等着你放工回来享用了。

两菜嘛,也很简单,不需要花费你很多时间。可以蒸豆腐、羊角豆、鱼、虾、等等。如何准备料理?简单,重要的是并不花时间。一些例子供你参考。蒸豆腐嘛,豆腐加上配料炸葱、耗油就可以了。蒸羊角豆,哈哈,更容易。羊角豆切片,浇一浇适量的酱油就可。鱼呢,只需加上配料姜丝、米酒或姜酒。虾啊,加上配料姜丝、米酒或黑酒。看看,是不是很容易?前提,你必须具备所需材料和调味品。饭呢,不需要用电饭锅,一块和其他料理放入大锅里蒸,方便极了。

稍微有一点时间的,可以煮一锅熟。长豆、南瓜都可以,加入肉类或虾类的和其它你喜欢的食材,在锅里翻炒一番,此时把米加入,倒入适量的水,再加入适量的黑酱油和鸡精块。待水沸了,将其倒入电饭锅。开启电饭锅,一锅熟长豆或南瓜饭马上就成了。

不煮饭的,还可以考虑煮粥、汤面类的,选择都在于自己。不管是一个、两个人也好,都不是阻碍你下厨的理由。打外面解决三餐,总会吃腻的。烹饪,是一件享受的乐事。若是想要捉住心爱人的胃,更是要上心哦!

~当个后天小厨师~

你我生下来不懂得煮?这是自然。对厨房的事,理解反应迟钝?小事一桩。以前在家待着的时候,最多时间可以看到妈妈烹饪。可是呢,就是不当一回事。长大了,在外工作,想要自己煮个什么的,发现这到底应该是下水了再加调味,还是下了调味再加水?抓不着头脑!

无所谓的,许多事我们都不是天生就懂,后天补勤就是了。我不在家依靠的日子十几年了,久久都搞不懂厨房是怎么一回事。与友人住在一起的时候,也是兴起才偶尔一起玩家家酒,做个简单晚餐。都不是我掌厨的,我负责处理食材。

再后来与弟弟、弟媳住在一块的时候,基于地方小、有限,一煮厨房就搞个乌烟瘴气的。总是买了一星期的菜,就只煮了一餐,其余的食材就这样浪费了。我煮了面,我弟弟还嫌没味道,真难入口,不如花几块钱,买个路边便食。那时,我也是这么认为,我自己都觉得难吃。最终,还是落个不善于烹饪的人。

终于守得云开见月明,在几年前有了自己的小窝。这下可以大显身手,自由发挥一番了。从简单的煎炸,到后来的蒸炒炖,这期间可交了不少学费。这学费当中就包括食材、时间、烧焦料理、煮失败了还得自己啃下肚子咯!当然,不忘了拿着电话询问,和妈妈偷师。这一路的锻炼,终于现在身附一两手了。最容易的不过于是一锅熟了。

现在去逛百货的时候也知道要买什么食材了,以备有用时之需。我可是不允许厨房和冰箱是空隙隙的。必需给填满!这样,肚子饿了,要煮什么的,选择范围良多,没有局限。

所以呢,天生不懂得煮,无所谓,可以当个后天小厨师!

刷屏

隔了好一大段日子没爬部落格了。这曾经是所有喜怒哀乐的凝聚点。要不是Ah Dear 提醒我,叫我再重新回去爬格吧,我想我真忘记这片曾经我最爱的空间。也是一些友人的喜好吧。还记得,那时我们每天赶爬格,做工时都偷偷爬格,不爬不痛快的。然后,还有年终颁奖礼,特搞笑好玩的。

唉,时光变迁,人事与非。年龄增长了,大家的中心点转移目标了。现在忙的都是柴米油盐、小孩子、搞生意、换车换屋等等。更牛逼的就非面子书或微信刷屏、洗版莫属了。新的一种生活方式,不跟上潮流,就变落伍了。这是连阿公阿嫲都得学,为了避免与新新人类有代沟的问题。

有时,我会想,这些大家都在热闹忙着的刷屏、洗版,到底具备着什么意义?不刷屏,没八卦到的消息新闻,会不会少块肉,生活就不能了呀?

我就说每一个人都有24小时,除去睡觉与工作各8小时,大约剩下的时间都跟刷屏有关。这手指不刷屏就得出问题了,感觉怪怪的。出来吃饭聊天的,大伙儿也是忙着刷屏。这面还得见吗?

我人生自工作开始的第一个十年与刷屏挂钩。另一个十年又是啥看头呀?我有想回去过去的冲动,那种多一点心动、感触的时光。

搭讪

其实寻找一夜情、把妹不是夜店的专属,沙滩也是其一。

话说两位姐姐傍晚时分走去库打沙滩看日落、吹海风。待日落后,由于仍依依不舍日落后的天空,弥漫着色彩缤纷、阵阵海风的吹拂、看着人们在享受着冲浪和沙滩上的嬉戏、还有那汹湃的海浪声、而明日更是飞往下个旅程的时候了,因此便再做逗留,留恋一凡所有的景色。

正越来越多人离开海滩时,突然走来一位巴厘男子和一位阿拉伯人来搭讪。那位叫Louise的巴厘男子讯问二位姐姐从何而来,是否还会在逗留多一会儿。他希望他坐下来的话,姐姐们可以留下来聊个天呗。

他俩一坐下来,便多了两位阿拉伯男子加入,还邀姐姐们喝酒抽烟,可是被姐姐们谢绝了。而后,开始猜测对方的年龄。他们仨各自是22、25和28岁的小伙子。顿时,姐姐们在他们眼里都年轻了十岁,分别是25和28岁。姐姐们何乐而不为呢!

小伙子真是盛情款款,欲邀姐姐们去喝酒跳舞。积极地说服说来到巴厘岛这个充满自由的天堂,应该无拘无束地去享受、释放自己。姐姐虽然是和这些小伙子好聊,不过倒是明白这些小伙子的别有用心,便拒绝了他们的盛邀。这些小伙子倒是不放弃的,继续逗姐姐们乐。若不是姐姐们尿急,肯定不止是一字钟的闲聊咯。

原来,在海滩上,尤其是像巴厘岛这么热情的地方,搭讪倒是家常便饭,年龄不是问题。下次想要感受一下被搭讪的感觉的话,可以到海滩走走、坐坐。。。

人之初~简单

人心有多单纯简单,
快乐理由亦变简单,
心亦容易自由满足。
对于一件事的接受,
就赖于心有多执着。
对于一件事的看法,
就赖于心胸有多宽。
一幅极朴素的景色,
可以有多优美迷人,
于你内心如何诠释,
真的可以非常简单,
又不失人之初感性,

心,若简单,一切亦简单。
我,只想简单。

稻苗。人生

阵阵微风吹拂稻苗,
时向左摇,时向右摆。
随性地让风决定它的摇摆姿势,
不做任何防抗。
风,要我去那,我就去那。
逆风而行,对它没有半点好处。
或许,会让自己更疼痛。
这样反而舒坦。
我想,人生大概如此。
不是每一样事情都如你想象中,
坦然地面对每一件人事物,
无论是好是坏,开心的抑或是伤心的。
此刻的心情,犹如稻苗,
没有无谓的欲望……
就是淡淡的一杯啤酒都可以觉得很满足。

心,有所感,有所受

这一天,我们来到Ubud。
Zen Spa依然没变,只是价格不一样了。
巴厘岛的人依然盛情接待游客,让人感觉舒服。
Ubud 的天空依旧蔚蓝,心情极好!
旧地重游的意义,不一定要和以前做比较,
我想会更是属于身心灵的归属感。
这一夜的月亮额外明亮皎洁,凉风习习。
这一切的感受与享受,与你的心境拖不了干系。
心静自然凉;心澈自然明;心诚自然真;心善自然美!

带心出走去

是时候带心出走去,它被我封闭太久了,纳闷得很吧!
十二年前我与闺蜜Celine Dear 一起到巴厘岛游玩。
这一刻,大家的心灵劳累得很,故决定我们旧地重游,
什么计划都不会有,只想给身心灵放假、休息。
这一天,抵达巴厘,发现机场都变了样。
是的,十二年前的我们,和十二年后的自己若没什么改变,
那就得检讨自己这些年是怎样度过的。
人,不进则退;经一事,长一智啊!
我们这带心出走的旅途会和以前一样吗?
我保证不会一样,肯定是不同的精彩!

过去。未来。

过去的这些年,偶个人真正体会自己是如何的用力工作。这所谓的用力工作,别人怎样都不会了解,偶是怎样走过去的。然,感谢这一路走过的人事物,让自己长大许多。或许,一些在个人的生活上有所被忽略了。是时候认真看待自己的意愿,好好策划未来的日子该如何精彩。不想就这么样的过一生,因那毕竟不是偶所向往的。如果这些年偶用了九牛二虎之力工作,那现在偶想用尽二虎之力享受生活。。。
