Inside the goodie bag.

The external speaker is Ms. Faridah Hamid. She has been doing women's talk for the international and local people. We had fun listening to what she has to share. Its about empowering ourselves by learning to ask the right questions rather then whine and complaint about petty things.

The speaker - Faridah Hamid

The one thing that she said that caught my attention was a caption from her slides that says :- 'how we spend our days is, of course how we spend our lives'.

Lessons in life that she personally wanna shared with us are :-
1. Focus on strengths
2. Improve
3. Delegate
4. No need to be perfect
5. Invest 10% of our income in education (for personal development)

After the talk, we all adjourned to another session, 'make-over'. At the same time Estee Lauder is having discounted for their product range. Most of us made our purchased lar....cannot tahan mah!!
