Virtual Assistant

Besides being an Information Technology executive, I also freelance as a virtual assistant in my home office. Just last week, I was paid USD 250 at USD 10 per hour for work from an Australian engineer who is also a businessman. I was the only person he contacted by internet and he offered me work for 25 hours block. The job was not too difficult and within my capabilities. He paid a 50% deposit payment upon confirmation and the balance upon completion of work. It was all done in a professional manner and I updated him weekly on the job nature and hours worked for the 7 days. He paid me via paypal and it was instant because he happen to be online when I completed the work and promptly paid me the balance. I love working in my humble home office!

Back from Langkawi

I came back from Langkawi 2 days ago and stayed at Bayview Hotel in Kuah for $255 per nite. For seaview, the price is $285 but there is not much difference between seaview and hill view. In fact, I prefer hill view and you get to see unblocked view of atap roofs, much greenery of the hills nearby and plenty of trees because Langkawi is still very much undeverloped and deliberately planned to be so to retain its natural beauty. I was there for business and after meeting up with the client, I bought cashew nuts, almonds coated with white chocolate, Australian nougats and orange flavoured Lindt chocolate flakes. I also bought a pair of Puma pump shoes for $159 from Al Ikhsan which specialises in selling sports products. My colleague bought 8 futsal balls for over $300 to be given as free gifts to our other client in Kedah.
