MH192 The government has instructed an investigation into why Malaysia Airlines planes have faced a series of troubles recently, said Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi.

Fourth Story - Short Briefing about GST

Several days ago, I was attended briefing about Government Services Tax (GST). As public know, the GST was announced by our prime Minister in Parliament in budget 2014 and will be implement in April 2015. GST is a tax which its replace the existing tax. GST rate or standard rate is 6%.

For the business which recorded revenue more than RM500,000 yearly is subject to the GST, but for the people like me, it’s doesn’t matter how much your yearly income weather more than RM500,000 or less than RM500,000, its subject to pay GST directly or indirectly. Directly meaning, you pay for GST which it is state in the bill or indirectly meaning pay for the GST which included in the price have you pay for the good or service you gets.

From the briefing revealed that not every business subject to the GST. They must register with Custom and get the GST number. The businesses which have not registered with the Custom are can’t collect GST form the customer. Meaning they can’t taxing you directly when your pay for goods or service. The type of businesses are called user like us. They must pay GST to the suppliers who are registered for GST. So, how they want to counter back the amount that they pay for the GST. Of course they must to increase the price. It is different for the businesses which subject for the GST and registered with Custom. The can claim refund from the Custom the differences amount between outgoing invoices and incoming invoices the have recorded for the month.

Outgoing invoices means, how much amount that the business collected from the sales for the month and incoming invoices means how much amount of GST that the businesses pay for upon purchase the goods and service for the month. The different between output and input, will be refund by government.

For the supermarket, might be they have pursued by government to maintain the price at the time GST will be implement at 01 April 2015. So, how they want to make sure that the GST is not impact their profit. I assume starting from now, the supermarket and also the consignment supplier was increasing their price.

Yesterday, I am looking for long-sleeve at SOGO.  I am looking for the branded long-sleeve like John Master, Renoma, Crocdile, Bonia and the other brand. When I notice the price, I am very surprise and shocked. The prices are so crazy expensive beb….. Can you imagine, for the John Master, the price was started from RM100 and above? I Notice that the other brand was started from RM100 not below than that. Huh….gaji masih lagi di takuk lama, tetapi harga baju melambung.. Short of the long story, I ended my mission at Kamdar. For not wait my time, I purchase two shirt, Durban for RM59.90 and one shirt which might be a new brand. The rand was write in Italic and very difficult for me to read. That is the mistake for that particular brand because when the brand is not clear, the customer can’t remember.

Ok thank you.

Third Story - Kuala Berang you waits I come

Hai everyone. This is the third story to share with you all. Actually, I have an idea to write something here, but time constrain, busy to complete the assignment and at the same time busy at work place. Next months, Inshaallah I will be transfer to my hometown.  They (my Headquarters) want me to manage a branch. Meaning, I will appoint as a branch manager.

 Wow… that is a big responsibility. Branch manager beb...... Actually I have no experience as a branch manager before, although I have an experience work at many branches, but I know that is very different. But I believe that anything must have a first steps or starting. Our  ex-Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir also don’t have an experience before he appointed as Prime Minister, but what is the result? He became a great prime minister.  I am so proud of him. But I know I cannot compare with him. 

Important to be prepare is about knowledge.  I have a lot of knowledge in everything, but I don’t know that my knowledge is useful or not to manage a branches. I am realized that is a lot of any things I must to manage.  A staff, machine, equipment, customers, society, local leaders, and so on. These are the “makhluk and thing” that must I care and manage.

Kuala Berang actually is my hometown. Kuala Berang is not different before I leave 15 years ago, except one or two building are established. I don’t know why Kuala Berang just like that. Might be that is too many politician decision come in in administration of Bandar Kuala Berang. That is my view, but the true is many variable factors that will involve such as population, surrounding economics, mentality of people and so on.

I am so happy actually to transfer because I will come back after more than 14 years traveling. From Kuala Berang to Tawau, Sabah. From Sabah to Kuala Lumpur. That is my journey. Now I come back, Inshaallah on Mei fourth.  A hard challenge waits for me, I know. 

Kuala Berang, you waits  I come……. Below I write up tips how to become a great manager or great leader. Actually, this tips is for me, but I want to sharing here. This theory is not my idea, I just copy and paste here. I forgot where, I get these tips. But the true, it is not my tips.  I don’t know why the tips start from 28. What happen to the number 1 – 27? What happen to the MH370. Ha ha ha….where is our aircraft actually. It is true that unlucky aircraft ended his journey in Indian Ocean?
For me, that is three placed that aircraft might be placed right now. First, in the sea. Second, on the earth or on the land and third, in space. Who know? Hanya Allah yang tahu?
Herewith the tips how to become the great managers or great leader.
