I've traveled back to Kuala Lumpur for the long weekend and Thaipusam holiday. Since I'm home, I decided to dig into my personal library as I remembered having a few Michael E. Porter books that would be essential for this module. True enough, I found two books by Porter which I bought in 2006 (almost a decade ago!): Competitive Strategy and Competitive Advantage. Now is the time to re-read them...
I also made a mental note to search for a book I really loved—Your MBA with Distinction—which I bought many years ago. I found it in my book pile. My "library stamp" shows that I bought the book in September 2005! When I bought it at Kinokuniya 10 years ago, it was RM123.60; now it is RM292.95 (also at Kinokuniya). I'm so glad I have this in my personal library! As you can probably see from here, my MBA dream started a long time ago. I will share more about this in one of the next posts.

My Scholarvox e-Library issue (read post here) is finally being taken care of, so I no longer face the problem of not being able to access the site. Many thanks to the Penang IPE coordinator, Mr. Sri, for listening to my feedback and fixing this problem. I was given another person's login (not mine) but assured that it is OK for me to use it. But since this directive came from the College itself, I will use this login while waiting for mine. I'm still not happy about this because I'm supposed to have my own and it's part of the program feature.
