BIOLOGICAL MEANS IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN MAN MADE TYPES

Hi! Everyone,

In view of the critical and urgent effects of Climate change, we at, 
Lift You Up, is going to run a mini series of using natural means to
take up this challenging task. While I am constantly seeking 
better means and ways of combating climate change from my 
house, I will share with you, in the hope that you too will follow 
suit. As we have repeatedly stressed that we need to tackle this 
issue collectively worldwide.

Today's article, we have identified three major types of indoor plants,
which can serve as Biological means of Indoor Ioniser, Air Ventilator 
and Air Purifier. They are as follow:-

1. Sansevieria ( See photo below)





























You are encouraged to combine a few Sansevieria in one pot for 
lush appearance. To create a sense of trendiness and harmony, 
place them in a pot that matches with your home furniture.

No special care is required as it grows easily, but avoid 
over-watering.

Do not underestimate its function. It can purify and filter harmful 
gases in your surrounding areas as it is rich in an ion which is 
beneficial to human body. Hence, it is better than electrical ioniser
in the sense that it reduces your electrical consumption apart from
greening the environment. Additionally, it takes in carbon dioxide
and releases oxygen at night. So, what are you waiting for, get 
them now. 

2. Lady palm































This plant is suitable to be placed indoors and in the washroom 
and it can serve as air purifier. It can survive with little sunlight 
and you need to ensure enough moisture with frequent watering. 
So, its benefit is very much better than the electrical type which 
will consume electricity. Don't get us wrong here, we prefer the 
natural means and not against other means. We respect your 
choice in every aspect. 

3. White Anthurium (Peace Lily)




























It helps regulate room temperature and moisture. Hence, 
it may reduce your air-condition consumption to certain 
extent. Besides that, it also purifies the air and helps 
eliminate odours and is suitable to place in the kitchen.
It, too, can grow with very little sunlight. However, sunlight
helps the flowers to blossom. Frequent watering is a must.

To enhance its decorative value, we recommended you 
plant them in the Rustics, so called the finest hand-painted 
pots with a unique range of delicate natural designs.

With the above short write up together with its photos, 
we strongly believe it offers you, Valued Readers, 
benefits far more exceeding your time and efforts.

Do not forget to revert to us your feedback of the plants, 
both good and bad so that we can also learn from you 
so as to improve further to serve you, Valued Readers.

Stay tuned and seeing you again and again.

Your Chief Servant,

ENTREPRENEUR AND ITS CHARACTERISTICS

Hi! Friend,
It is my pleasure to see you again. Thank for your support and you will be well rewarded.
It is a known fact that national progress is in the hands of Entrepreneurs as they are the pillars to the nation's progress. They are not only the goods and services providers to the people, but these are also the people who are shape, drive the economy so as to achieve sustainable economic growth by creating more employment opportunities for the people. As it is not feasible for the government to fund and manage every industry, therefore the government needs to work hand in hand with these entrepreneurs to develop both small and large scale industries to accelerate the economic growth.  I also need to make this clear to you that Entrepreneurship is not everyone's cup of tea.  You need to develop certain qualities to be a successful entrepreneur. You may be aware that I, lately, have officially announced to the world at large that I am a Technopreneur. I would like to share with you as to what are  the qualities required to make a SUCCESSFUL entrepreneur, with the intention that you do join us and work together to lead instead of just taking  a back seat.

Creativity:

Creativity means the ability of bringing something new into existence in the public perspective. It can be anything and everything. The beauty of this is that there is no limit or boundary to it. Freedom need to be given so as to give the thinker a chance to create new items, which can be anything and everything. As such to be a successful entrepreneur, he needs to be creative. This point has been well proven  in the mankind's history, which needs no further elaboration.

Innovation:

Innovation is another important pillar supporting entrepreneurship regardless of the field the individual  is involved in. An innovative entrepreneur creates a resource.  Because of his overwhelming passion, he can overcome any obstacle that comes along. His innovative ways will enable him to circumvent all obstacles which ordinary person would not be able to do. That is why entrepreneurs always hold themselves responsible for their own future. As a result, they are able to sustain and maintain themselves throughout the journey without feeling the unbearable pain, very different from the ordinary person. They enjoy their enterprise no matter how tough it is and they do not need to be pushed by others. It comes naturally and they respond to it in a very positive manner, without regrets. It is, at times very difficult to describe in words unless you really go through such an experience. Sweet and rewarding for those who have made it.

Dynamism

An entrepreneur needs to be dynamic, so to speak, because of its nature of work the entrepreneur is involved in.  A dynamic entrepreneur is a problems solver and always seek for challenges that make their lives more exciting and rewarding as well. He always seek solutions to the problems/difficulties so as to make thing better in term of its features, function and etc..In short, to make the world a better place to live in. They love challenges as they know that challenges will make them progress. Therefore, you can see that they need to have interest and passion in that enterprise and not necessary focus solely on generating more money for themselves alone.  A dynamic entrepreneur always seeks better ways of doing things in a more effective and efficient manner. They rely on the tested and proven formula that makes everyone involved be in a win-win situation. They consistently evolved through time, just like the way you start peddling your bicycle.

Quality Leadership:

Leadership is form one of the most important ingredients because he needs to gain respect from others so as to lead the way in an effective manner. Time will tell his true quality of leadership. In fact, you can see his leadership when you walk into his office. His leadership will be reflected in his daily life and action, in how he manages the affairs, no matter how he conceals it.  Good entrepreneur is also a good student, who has a desire to upgrade himself in any area so long as it can make him progress further and further, so as to stay ahead in the field he is in. He enjoys healthy competition because this is the way which can drive him to progress further. He is a no nonsense person who always constantly give his best shot and never give excuses. His quality of leadership will be clearly reflected throughout every aspect of task handling, problem solving and confronting issues in daily life. He is truly efficient and effective. An enterprise with excellent leadership is always prominent and highly demanded in the market worldwide.

Team Builder in nature:

An entrepreneur recognised and acknowledged the fact that he cannot act alone, he needs to build team to sustain the growth of his enterprise.  As such, an entrepreneur form group of individuals with common purpose to drive them to stay focus on their BIG goals and not the problem.  They build network and continue to support each member with dedication, commitment, energy and innovation.

Firm and Decisive:

These qualities make them distinct from the rest. Usually they are far sighted, have clear defined mission and vision. They are able to stand against all odds. An entrepreneur makes firm decisions because they know what they are doing, they foresee the challenges in advance, therefore they are able to take the right wave of the uncertainty that ordinary people would otherwise missed. That is the great difference and always make them look forward, which normal people may view as high risk. They are versatile people and they know how to manoeuvre so as to climb higher. Even if there is a fall, in ordinary person's view, they viewed it as a temporary set back and they are able to capture this adversity to make themselves better than their initial position.  An entrepreneur start with a completely new activity and he may either succeed or fail. Here, an entrepreneur usually takes a calculated risk.

Commitment:

Similar to any other type of adventure, an entrepreneur is usually a person with high commitment, has strong dedication and will power. They want to play the winning game that requires patience, they endure whatsoever obstacles that come along their journey. And they know that the resistance is there to shape them to build their inner muscles to overcome much bigger obstacles as they move to  higher levels of success. Their desire will not lack fuel because they draw these energies from various invisible sources.

Communication Ability:

Good entrepreneur is also an excellent communicator who can convey his message precisely and accurately so that his team members know what he really means and work hand in hand to support him to move to the next level of success. They have "authority" that comes with strong persuasive power to align his teams to flow with him in the same direction. They need to do it in a very transparent manner that requires high integrity to earn the trust and confidence from their team members. Their team members will not only listen to them but will respond accordingly with full confidence.

IN this connection, you may contact me should you really want to commit yourself to join us to chart your own path of success. You may either furnish me your contact, via comment. Alternatively, you may drop me an email at jamesoh2003@yahoo.co.uk.

Thank you for your precious time and looking forward to hearing from you

TRANSMILE GROUP BERHAD : MY REAL EXPERIENCE AS TURNAROUND MANAGER

Hi! Friends,

Further to several articles posted on our blog, we believe you have a good understanding of how to turn around a company. As promised you much earlier that we ALWAYS uphold our policy to share with you our knowledge, skill, expertise and experience. We do so because we wanted to pass back to the world which we have been benefiting from. We do what we preach. Transparency and consistency are two key indicators to verify such an act.

IN this connection, I will like to let you know that I learn about Lee Iccacoa who turned around the General Motors during the seventies. I was amazed with this guy and hope one day I may have the chance to apply what I have learned from this great author. 

During my tenure with Time Advance Products, I was given an opportunity to work with a General Manager to turn around this sick company. After a couple of months of hard work, we were about to turn around the Said company. We have prescribed some of the formulae, suggested in my preceding articles, which stopped the company from bleeding further. Various measures such as shortening its cash cycle and fixing the cannibalized machine into a functionable machine to be sold for cash. However, that General Manager left due to a better offer from another company. As a result I was left alone there. I eventually left the company after I realized that a wrong guy was put in charge. It proved me right that the company was sold off to third party after I left.

That time I didn't really complete my mission as a Turnaround Manager. 

However, I was put into a real test again when I was the Financial Controller of Transmile Group Berhad during the Asian Financial Crisis in 2007. Because of my past exposure, I responded with calm and steadiness. At times, I even laugh it out, as a way to release myself, especially when I was hit by numerous occasions such as Section 218 notice, Seizure notice, etc.

My boss who trusted me, throughout my past performance, so much that he gave me so much authority to implement several drastic and effective plans to keep the company afloat and continue to service our bankers, suppliers well after some restructuring exercises.

Thank God for putting me there to go through the entire cycle, which was a real sweet and rewarding job, although it was not easy. I finally achieved my dream to become a turnaround manager in 2009, at the age of 38. Good things did not end here. The Senior Management, at that time, decided to transfer me out from the finance for whatever reason known best to them. The rest is not relevant. 

I took it as an opportunity to pursue my law degree so that I can peruse my other dreams. The rest is history. Again, it proves in my favour now as I have seen the light.

By now, you should understand why I make myself present at its recent AGM and even offered them my expertise. Unfortunately, it was turned down. 

Again, I take this rejection as another opportunity for me to offer my coaching courses to others since the market has a real shortage of turnaround Managers worldwide, as we have mentioned in our preceding articles. (Click the title to make access to this article)

Therefore, I urge those who are serious to take up this course. I am the right man, who have the necessary skills, knowledge, experience to assist you. If you are the one, then contact me now at jamesoh2003@yahoo.co.uk; skype me at james.oh18, or via comment.

Please act now before you regret later.

GREEN PROJECT AT BANDAR UTAMA

In line with the Green Issue, we are pleased to inform you that the Bandar Utama Shopping Centre has embarked in a memorable event, called BOOKCROSS@1U, since January 1, 2010 and projected to last until December 2010.

As such, you are encouraged to bring your books to read and exchange at 1 Utama's Official BookCrossing Zone - BookCross@1U located at Ground Floor Highstreet.

BookCrossing is earth-friendly, and gives you a way to share your books and clear your shelves.Through this unique method of recycling books, BookCrossers give life to books.

Furnished with cosy living room furniture with bookcase, lamps and sofas, BookCross@1U is designed as a convenient BookCrossing venue for booklovers whilst doubling as a special reading lounge for shoppers.

More over, 50 books are sponsored by MPH Bookstores every month and released at BookCross@1U. Regular book club meetings, author readings and BookCrossing sessions will also be organised at BookCross@1U by MPH.

With the initial group of books released by MPH, hundreds more books will be contributed by 1 Utama to provide an ongoing platform for shoppers to read.

1 Utama is the first mall in Asia to launch a BookCrossing Zone, so be sure to visit us often! Your presence is greatly appreciated so as to encourage more  such projects to address the Green Issue.

You may contact the Customer Service Centre at 03-7710 8118 from 10:00am to 10:00pm daily for more details on BookCross@1U.

Another initiative you should not missed is the roof-top garden which occupies almost 30,000 sq ft and houses over  500 species of rare tropical and temperate plants - - making it possibly the largest roof-top garden in Southeast Asia in terms of variety and number of plants.

The garden is the brain-child of 1Utama director Datuk Teo Chiang Kok who had been concerned about preserving the environment in the face of mushrooming development. As such, we express our heartfelt thanks to Datuk Teo.

The roof-top garden coincides with another green initiative – an actual rainforest enclave cultivated within 1 Utama called the Rainforest.

Both projects were led by distinguished botanist and researcher Dr Francis Ng, who recently was awarded the prestigious David Fairchild Medal 2009 (Plant Exploration) presented by the National Tropical Botanical Garden of the United States.  We are truly proud of both of them who have made the Nation proud of their remarkable contributions.

We want you to sing the song below with us, the song called "EXTEND YOUR HANDS TO US, PLEASE."



EXTEND YOUR HANDS TO US, PLEASE



America in Deep shit;
We heard your voice even if you don't cry out;
We wanted to let you know you are not alone;
The rest of the world is trying hard to reach you


America, you are not fighting alone;
We want you to continuously lead;
This set back is not the edge;
But it is a turning point;
And it is meant to make you stronger;


The rest of the world will never abandon you
America, America, America
We heard your voice
That's why we are trying to reach you


We know that you are hiding away from us
Nevertheless we keep on trying all feasible means to reach you
We just want to let you know that we will never give up hope to reach you
We know you will keep on trying to hide away from us


We know how you react, and the pains you are suffering
Even though you hide from us
We never blame you
But don't belittle us although we are not so big as you think
But our heart and voice is overwhelmingly BIG


Even if you reject us thousands of times
We wouldn't feel the pain contrary to your view
That's why we still have the energy to keep on  reaching you
Even when you keep on running away from us


What we need from you is
You extend your hands to us
We are willing to hold your hands to walk through the journey with you


That is our commitment and we will do it wholeheartedly
We will gather those liked minded people
To sing this song and continue to sing this song over and over
Until and unless you extend your hands to us


We know how you think
We are not irritating you, as you perceived;
We know that it is not your fault
But we can't leave you;
Ignore or abandon you


This is because we care and are concern for you
That's why we ask you to extend your hands to us
So that we can reach you


We will not give up and will continue to sing this song
Until and unless you extend your hand to us.

Here, we invite artists, producers and those who are keen to work with us to hit in a big scale, on commercial basis, so as to create a huge impact to lift people up. Then please email to jamesoh2003@yahoo.co.uk or skype me at james.oh18.
