The “Last” Poem

Filed under: DEETEE, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 7:48 am

I guess Cheah must have been tired of waiting for another hotel to host lunch! So he says his good byes thru this poem. 🙂  As usual enjoy his unique sense of humor.

THE LAST 

With so much happening,
And a few people leaving,
The TIME is coming,
Perhaps we should disband this thing,
Known to all as “The Gathering”

Interest has waned,
Some people treat with disdain,
You can feel the pain,
Nothing much to gain,
It has become very plain.

The idea is to form a society,
To celebrate our work monthly,
To share our success story,
To establish a common strategy,
To communicate fairly,
And to find JOY in our routine daily.

But this is not to be,
Even with poems it’s easy to see,
No one seems to be free,
So there is no activity,
C’est La Vie,
Whatever will be will be.

The poems require some planning,
Words require highlighting,
“The Last” will have that meaning,
As with every beginning,
There must be an ending,
So it looks like I’ll be writing,
More for my GM reporting.

Furthermore, my evening,
Will be reserved for other outing,
That will give my Life meaning,
As Religion ain’t my kinda thing,
Hope you guys will be understanding.

For what is Life without passion,
Day after day, session after session,
We have yet to learn our lesson,
Feels like a life of retribution,
All words but no action.

So this will be “The Last”,
To all the remaining Revenue cast.
Whatever we’ve done in the past,
I will treasure and hold fast.

* This final poem dedicated to all those going off or are gone(in the literal sense, not physical sense ! )

cheers,

Poem by Cheah H C

Moving on from Revenue Management to a Trainer and Coach

Filed under: Daren, DEETEE, Frens, Revenue — delephant @ 12:38 pm

Jonathan Low

Jonathan Low has been a dear friend for many many years. In fact it was Jonathan who actually helped point the direction to go study Swiss Hotel Managemet at Hotel Institute Montreux, Switzerland back in 1990s.

Yeah lor he was the “senior” there, though we never got a chance to meet cos when he graduated, that was when I was sent over to Montreux.

But it was great, cos he found a church and a common friend in whom he introduced me too, so that at least there was a place of worship that i could go despite being in Switzerland. Swiss is an awesome country with rich history and with snow capped mountains all round. Montreux is a valley and during the cold periods we would get temperatures hitting 4 degres Celcius. But i digress … oh yes one more vivid point about Switzerland, those days, there was no internet, or skype or MSN … i had to go to the PPT (Post Office) and will see 5 Swiss Francs get swallowed up in mere seconds each time i gave a call home to the family! 🙂 That was Switzerland .. land flowing with rich dark (Lindt) chocolcate and cheese … and very expensive place to live!

Anyway … we met back in Malaysia when i finally got home and he was at the Hilton when I was at Shangri-La KL, then he moved on to Renaissance and finally to the ParkRoyal KL. We had regular meets (lunchies spiked with poems) with all the other Revenue Directors in KL. Those are fun times! (hmmm still waiting for the next Revenue Director to host a lunch!)

So what did you know, when I received a mail from Jon stating .. okies.. i won’t be in Park Royal anymore. 

I was like huh? Where you going? Which hotel are you moving on too?  

I am glad that Jon has chosen a path of his passion .. moving away from Revenue Managemenet to something that he loves in Training and Coaching people to be leaders of their own areas.

So if you’re looking for a good Trainer & Coach with experiences in the Hospitality Industry …  give Jonathan Low a call … for more info click on his profile (pic above).

Poem : ‘The Gathering’

Filed under: Daren, DEETEE, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 8:35 am

We’ve got an awesome poet in the Revenue Gang … its none other than Cheah from Shang! 🙂

Each time prior the Revenue Gathering … he would come up with a superb poem! Its so good that i am gonna start archiving it on this blog (will have to search my deleted files for his older poems)

This poem … we’re figuiring out where we’re gonna have our next lunchies? say our goodbye to Jonathan Low, and the upcoming F1 season.

Read on ….  

The Gathering 

The time has come,
Known as ‘The Gathering’ to some,
To others, it may be bothersome,
To us, it’s usually Lunch F1.

Speaking of which,
I’m opening this sales pitch,
On the next destination hitch,
As Jonathan has left us in the ditch.

It’s suppose to be ParkRoyal Hotel,
And it’s easy to tell,
It’s alphabetical,
However, he’s now set sail.

So, we propose a new destination,
Perhaps a place of fascination,
With sounds like detonation,
An event that wakes up the Nation.

Yan said Picnic at the circuit,
Will be of much benefit,
It won’t be a tight fit,
The only problem will be the ticket.

Do they give away tickets for free?
Can someone check and see?
Or perhaps there is a group fee,
then organising it will be easy.

I can bring cheese that shine,
Yan will bring 3 bottles of wine,
Together we will all dine,
F1 Saturday, weather should be fine.

For we always do the same,
GOD says this is not the game,
Don’t let the self get blame,
Let’s change and ignite the flame.

So, what say you my friend?
Should we follow the normal trend?
And gather at hotels again?
For a ‘quickie’ bite as planned?
Or for once, ‘kick the sand’,
And shout “Let’s go to the F1, man !!”
Dude, this goes hand in hand,
When someone asked you again,
At the hotel, you plan and you plan
But didn’t see you at the F1 stand
Let’s go while we can
And listen to the F1 band !!
