Editor’s Note – December 2017
December is always my favourite month of the year (after my birthday month that is) as there’s Christmas and New Year’s Eve which is a great time to spend with loved ones and friends. Look out for my Christmas and NYE feature which will include the info on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day dinners and menus, as well as the NYE parties happening in Kuala Lumpur.
Speaking of my birthday, many thanks to ANTE in 1 Utama Shopping Centre for hosting my birthday dinner (again!). As usual, the food was absolutely delicious especially the pork steaks! Also, many thanks to Macallan for the single malt whisky!

This 38.5 mm authentic military version offers a reading which emphasizes the minutes on the large face reminiscent of the navigation watches used by military pilots to calculate their direction or speed. Reinterpreting the style of the past, the photoluminescent triangle at 12 o’clock enabled the pilots to instantly get their bearings, even in the dark.

How to Deal with Millennials – The Entitled, Narcissistic, and Lazy Generation
A huge component of my company MHB is managing bloggers and social media influencers who are millennials or Generation Y. These are persons born after 1985 up to the early 2000, and are a generation that many bosses (who are usually older persons from Gen X and beyond) especially in corporate management find difficult to understand. This is because many of these millennials are extremely hard to handle, and often behave in an unprofessional manner which is unacceptable in the workplace.
Fortunately, Simon Sinek, who is a British/American author, motivational speaker and marketing consultant offers some solutions to the conundrum. He is the author of three books including the 2009 best seller Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2009).
If you’re in management and are at your wits’ end as to how to deal with your millennial staff, this video is for you. If you’re a millennial, Simon also offers some words of advise for you.
The main point for millennials is – when you focus is on helping others, you naturally stop being so self-centred and narcissistic.
