Minyak oh minyak.. kenapa engkau mahal?


wallaweh!

berikut adalah diantara punca-punca kenaikan harga minyak dunia untuk pengetahuan kita bersama:

1) Mainan politik minyak dunia oleh Amerika Syarikat. Punca utama adalah melalui serangan Amerika ke atas Afghanistan dan Iraq. Akibat daripada peperangan itu, keadaan ekonomi semasa seluruh dunia menjadi tidak menentu sehinggalah ke hari ini dimana semua harga barang keperluan naik mendadak.

2) Pengurangan aktiviti eksport daripada negara-negara pengeluar minyak dunia seperti India dan Arab Saudi. Ini kerana mereka ingin menumpukan perhatian kepada aktiviti pengeluaran minyak domestik yang semakin berkurangan dan permintaan yang semakin tinggi. Disebabkan itu, ia telah mengakibatkan berlakunya pengurangan pengeluaran minyak kepada negara-negara lain seluruh dunia dan disinilah berlakunya kenaikan mendadak harga minyak dunia. (high fuel demand, low fuel supply) Keadaan ini telah memaksa kerajaan bagi setiap negara (termasuk Malaysia) menaikkan harga minyak bagi menampung kos yang begitu tinggi.

3) Spekulasi politik antarabangsa. Yang terbaru, spekulasi mengenai Israel yang akan menyerang Iran dengan sokongan pihak AS. Ini bakal memberi impak yang besar kepada ekonomi dunia dimana negara Iran (yang kaya dengan hasil minyak) bukan sahaja handal di dalam sistem ketenteraan, malah mereka juga menjalinkan hubungan perniagaan antarabangsa yang baik dengan negara-negara besar dunia seperti Rusia, China, Jerman dan sebagainya. Pendek kata, selepas AS, Iran adalah negara kedua yang mempunyai pengaruh serta kuasa yang besar. Oleh itu, anda fikirlah sendiri mengapa AS beriya2 mahu menggunakan Israel untuk menyerang Iran.

4) Kepelbagaian masalah teknikal syarikat2 pengeluar minyak. Saya tidak berapa ingat bila perkara ini terjadi tapi ianya berlaku sekitar sebulan dua yang lepas, dimana ada syarikat minyak (milik negara Mexico) telah menghentikan sementara operasi pengeluaran minyaknya berikutan berlaku masalah kebocoran serta pertumpahan minyak di tapak pemprosesan minyak mereka. Disebabkan itu, harga minyak dunia pada masa itu juga telah meningkat dengan mendadak. (Maafkan saya kerana tidak dapat memberikan fakta yang agak tepat dari segi masa dan tempat berlakunya kes ini).

Kesemua punca-punca ini adalah berdasarkan fakta yang saya peroleh melalui akhbar2 serta majalah dan ianya bukanlah rekaan semata-mata. Ada banyak lagi punca-punca yang belum diketengahkan dan Insya-Allah saya akan cuba mencari seberapa banyak lagi bahan2 ini untuk tatapan kita bersama.




Rumah Bruce Lee jadi muzium

HONG KONG 3 Julai - Pemilik rumah agam pelakon terkenal, Bruce Lee membatalkan hasrat untuk menjual rumah tersebut, sebaliknya bercadang menjadikannya muzium bagi mengenang legenda kung fu itu.
Dermawan yang juga jutawan terkenal, Yu Panglin telah membeli rumah berkenaan pada lewat 1960-an pada harga AS$109,000 (RM348,800).
Beliau sebelum ini telah menawarkan hartanah itu untuk dijual namun membatalkan hasrat tersebut setelah mendapat desakan daripada peminat legenda itu.
"Saya akan menimbangkan semua pandangan masyarakat dan peminat beliau (Bruce Lee), malah bersedia untuk menyumbangkan hartanah ini jika majoriti beranggapan kita semua patut memeliharanya sebagai tanda kenangan di atas kehebatannya (Bruce Lee)," kata Panglin.
Pada asalnya, Panglin bercadang untuk mendermakan separuh hasil jualan rumah tersebut kepada mangsa gempa bumi di wilayah Sichuan. -utusanonline

Bursama trading suspended??



wallaweh!

Hello viewers. I was shocked when sha called from OSK and said that the tradings in Bursa Malaysia has been suspended yesterday (3rd July 08) due to some reason. Well it was a rare situation actually since this suspension happened when we had a lot of speculations (you know it btw) going on around us nowadays. And ya it never happened before and of course, it gives a big impact not only to the poor investors, but also to the economy.

Well according to Datuk Yusli the CEO of Bursama, the main reason of the suspension was due to technical glitch (kerosakan teknikal pada sistem komputer) and yet it caused them to lose about RM450,000 in terms of trading commissions with an average value of daily trading currently up to RM1 billion. (b.harian 4thJuly)

Well my opinion is this:

1) It should never happened. Why, bcoz we're in a middle of national crisis. With a super duper speculations from the political side, plus with this technical failure, it gives a huge impact on the investor's confidence level to invest in Malaysia. Just look at the Composite Index now. Right after the one day suspension, the KLCI dropped to a 16-month low to 1124.53 points (staronline.com 4th July).

2) Bursama should change the trading system they used currently (SCORE) because it has been used for quite some time.

3) Detailed explanation should be given from Bursama about this suspension so that we could get back the investors' confidence. And thank god, they already did that.

4) I believe this is due to the technical glinch, not for some other reason. Well ya there's a lotsa political speculation going on around us currently and i believe those speculations has got nothing to do with this failure. Wallahua'lam.

5) Let us bring back our 1,200 points trading record back on track. Although it is impossible for the time being, but i believe if we could stop all those speculations, we could get back the things that we have lost. Amin.

I love Malaysia. Do you? :)

working + studying : workying??

Wallawehhh!


Hello and welcome evryone. Ya honestly got nothing to talkabout. Just personal expression about me going studying again for my master degree. Well after a not so long year of working (guess la) and suddenly to go back 'school' again, i felt one weird feeling flying and buzzing around my head and i dunno what. Ya definitely question and whispers that flew in my mind currently sounds like 'wey can u do it?' and 'malaslaaa' and 'ntah' and 'bole bha kalau kaw' haha. Personally i think this feeling comes from the working experiences that i get previously.

Well first with UMW Toyota Capital as a Cust Service Executive. Eventhough only for short period, i did get a lotsa colorful and 'blackforest' experiences. Now i knew that Malaysians are all CEREWETs. But i appreciate the management team for taking care of our needs. Thanks to Miss A'tikah and Miss Tan A.Kwee (for hiring me of course) Bro Sarjit Singh (for his guidance n support) and rest of the colleagues. Speaking bout colleagues..haha lotsa memories la. Weyy jaja mana u? Ezzaaaa hows your study?? (she's currently pursuing her masters degree at MMU). These 2 people are my colleague yang best + sporting (notice both of them are females..haha see the leg la :p)

You know what's the differences between MNC (toyota is MNC btw) and local companies? Well the main strength of this MNCs are the culture that buried in the company. Toyota for example, they have this Kaizen (means continuos development) as their secret weapon. And no wonder, they are currently at top of the list. The locals, i'm not particularly sure because i'm a Malaysian and i know about our culture (doesnt matter whatever races we are). But 1 thing for sure, i'm proud being a Malaysian because we built together the Malaysia that we have today.






2nd, with Universiti Malaysia Sabah as a tutor under finance and banking course. Well actually it was only for part time as Kak Zaiton (my program coordinator) called me whether i want the position or not. Hell ya denifinitely i took the offer since i'm intrested in lecturing. I actually put myself on risk since the offer only for part time (about 3-4 months) and if i didnt get any offers for full time interview, i'll be a dead meat. And so i officially resigned from UMWTCAP on 14th Dec 07 (mysis bday pulak tu) and report duty in UMS on 5th Jan 07. Kak Zai put me as part time tutor under provision of Pak Midi (Lecturer of Financial Mgmt). So i gave tutor class for these finance students (198 students) and he gave the lectures. for part time tutoring course, i tought Interim (Interaksi antara Siswa & Masyarakat)and also public speaking (for music students). And syukur alhamdulillah get the full time position for tutor after a long tiring months (almost a year) of waiting!


Honestly, this was my most enjoyable and enjoyable moment of working. I really enjoyed myself teaching these students as they are very committed to me. and ya probably that is why it is hard to say bye2 to them bcause we are just like a family. But weh when it comes to grades, it'll become a different story oredi..ahaha.. to my finance and interim students, welcome back to campus (haha abis suda cuti) and to my musicline students, gd luck on your mid exam and practice a lot if you want to beat ur seniors' standard (weyy p.speaking jgn lupa nnt sa buat spot check masa resital p.speaking nnt~haha) miss u all guys :)

And now here i am back in shah alam with a WORKYING mood. ahaha sounds crazy dowh. One good thing here is that i can continue my long lasting hobby yang suda lama x buat, which is lepak @ charok (in our budak uitm own language) with my frens here. And ya we go play futsal..wohooooo we have a team called Vatos Locos and so far slalu menang dan kalah. haha now i'm back again in Business management faculty and guys, pray for my success as i'll pray yours too :)

See you guys in my next blog..daa
