Was suppose to do a post for Chivas events I attended today but due to unforeseen circumstances, this post has to postpone until further notice. On top of that, due to laziness strikes which is kinda normal I guess, I decided to share some interesting books that I came across when I’m too boring and ended up hanged out inside some bookstores.

#1 Jobstreet.com Career Guide (didn’t take 1 with me)

This book captured my sight because of Jobstreet.com. It is nothing alien to us, isn’t it? How could I miss out something so catchy when I actually know at least 80% of the sales team in Penang branch? Wondering how many copies sold in a year. Maybe with such economy recession with lots of retrenchment, it might be doing good.

#2 Making Out In English (shouldn’t waste my money on this)

Out of my surprise, this book laid exactly the same rack with #1. Both tag under guidebook I guess. The former guide you to be success in your career and the latter channel you to a better person at home, hence a complete person in life?

He & She signs

who in the world need a book to help u understand those?

#3 How To Become CEO

Lately, Business FM (BFM) is the radio channel I tune in during my morning drive to work. There were a lot of interviews went on with CEO from various sectors. Curiosity kicked and I was reading this book in MPH itself. Finished at least 15% of it and I decided to take it home.

This book is just simply simple. Interesting. Fascinating. Inspiring. & easy to absorb. Everyone should just read it. I should make it a gift to all the directors in my company because in one of the chapter, it quotes, “Overpaid your people”. Awesome! LOL

Nice read. But currently I’m only qualified to become

Chief Entertainment Officer

These up and down pics actually a chapter in this book. simple right?

Out from 15 titles, know 2 read 0. no wonder i’m stuck in middle of no where FML

#4 Dictionary – English to Penang Hokkien

Someone close who works in #1, introducing this remarkable piece of work from a German who works in Penang. Amazingly a master piece like that wasn’t done by Penang people itself by an expat. Even The Star paper wrote about it. Salute!

As many of you may know, Penang Hokkien is often accused of being ‘rojak’ (mixed with many languages and dialects) dialect. This dictionary explains it so well and was done superbly. The contents are so down to earth where you actually hear them on a daily basis on Penang or Northern part of Malaysia. It covers from something ubiquitous to somewhat vulgar/impolite. Best buy for RM22.00

Best Dictionary EVAR!!!

This page actually make me and Carol laughed like hell and Suanie laughed from couch and eventually ended up on floor

It does has something nice and funny too
