Learning..

My last posting was about being mentally active.Last weekend,I had three days of mental hiking and mountain biking through a journey of listening, talking, dramas, listening to poems,acting ,pretending and reflecting on a body of knowledge related to governance.It was more than what I asked for.Next time,I  better be careful with what I  asked for-I may ended with too much too chew like the foods and drinks provided by the hotel during our lunches and dinners.

It was a new way of  learning for me in the methodology used to get the people to learn and understand a new concept.It was very effective way to get to know what it was through answering probing questions and sharing the answers with fellow participants.Later,we told our personal stories to reflect the meanings of what we understood about the concept.On the last and third day,we gathered what we have learnt and created scenario where the new knowledge could be applied.

As a trainer in project management,I became a trainee in governance workshop.When the role was reversed,I could learn how the coaching gets into the trainee.

Today I need a rest to allow my body,mind and soul to  be relieved of various stress and strain they had suffered and enjoyed in the last three days.Tomorrow,I am going cycling with my buddies.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002



The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..





"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?





'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

ON RAINS

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
