Be careful when giving response to a question. ("I don't think so, I know so") The following statement; to me; may backfire. It's a very dangerous statement.

Definitely "No". (no retraction) A "yes" will reflect the auditor's unprofessional ethics.

Auditors should have known what he/she should do prior to the audit and prior to closing. It's called planning/managing the audit.

It is about "judgement and evidence". It may not be 100% accurate but it serves the purpose.

Once it's done, it's done, there is no turning back. If serious error being identified after the audit or after any "follow-up", then, the auditors should be liable despite any disclaimer on the audit report.

Rediscovering the potential you have lost. Like I did. It's there somewhere but buried due to depression and the negative vibes you've fed into yourself.

This is another non-celebrity in Taman Seri Gombak. His name is Nathan, a homeless guy that I've known since the last 14 years.

He looks a little eccentric but don't be surprised, he can speak English very well. His life story was also a sad one, I wouldn't want to speak about it here.

It's been a while since I last met him and to my surprise, I bumped into him on the other side of Sri Gombak. He is indeed very happy to see me. Of course, I treated him for a cup of teh tarik and capati plus sparing some small cash gift for him....for old time sake

In a peculiar way, he kinda reminds me of the legendary Malaysian lawyer and politician, Karpal Singh. (RIP)

I still see "good job offers" that are not what they seem in reality. Many have regretted profusely accepting them - returning home and live to tell that it's not such a greener pasture after all. The offers seem genuine, so you travel thousands of miles to the unknown world (especially for the first time), to find out that your dream jobs are almost rip-offs - various "taxes" and "cession money" that you have to pay. The jobs are not scam but because you didn't do any homework before you decide, you'll find that you've landed yourself into so much trouble. (Don't ask me - which country/nation)

This is me trying to cross the road near SRK Seri Gombak.

I have noticed that most Malaysian motorists will never stop at Zebra Crossings.

Even if there is a traffic light, indicating that pedestrian can cross the road (for example near Prima Sri Gombak), they would not stop either. Well, that's how our so called "advanced mindsets" are.

"Hello how are you today Mr. Nik?"

This is Uncle Min (Ah Meng) - he is no celebrity or famous guy. He is just a fruit seller near Public Bank Taman Sri Gombak.

I am always happy and smiling everytime I bump into this chap. Suffice it to say, he is one of the most positive person I have ever seen.

He never fail to say "Hello, how are you?" to me..it's been like that for almost more than 12 years.

Was invited to co-inspect with some risk assessment experts on one "old" housing area near Kuala Lumpur. I have always promised myself that I do not want to get involved too much in inspection/risk assessment especially on houses (there are so much "things" that I can see) Before the first minute, I quickly noticed most *weepholes are sealed (*gaps left between some bricks in external masonry walls).

Can't imagine what would happened without ventillation - rotting, dampening and eventually structural integrity.

I asked the maintenance of why he sealed the weepholes - this was his actual answer...

"What's a weephole? (jokingly said "is it for the house to cry?"I cover (sealed) the gaps because of "bad quality in construction" - leaving gaps for rodents - snakes and rats"

I asked him "where did you study your engineering?"

He kept quiet, followed by sarcastic smiles from other inspectors.

Less but not least, it was a major non-conformance issued to his immediate superior - who happened to be on MC - I wonder why (and the HR as well - The maintenance guy seriously needs retraining)
