    Last talk with my friend, she told me a story about an elderly couple who came to her shop yesterday. While the woman was having her nails painted, the man just stayed quietly at the chair and read newspaper. They came several times, and they held their hands tightly while walking all the way to their car. And I think that: How adorable a love can be. I wonder why girls have to dream of the "extraordinary guys" in the novels (especially Chinese romance novels), while all I want is just someone who understand me - the real me, and always be there for me when I need him.
    PS: A little bit sentimental, right? :v

    PS 2: conruoinho: I forgot that rule about members not using red in their comment. I'm sorry for that. I edited my last post and changed the color. :P
    By the way, please correct me if there are any mistakes. :D

    Hi, everyone. My english isn't good, so you can help me. This is my presentation which I will display next week.
    PRESENTATION

    During the current economic market, more and more enterprises, the competition is getting fierce. To survive and develop in this situation, to maintain market share, businesses must make the famous and respected. Every day, we hear many news about the company famous and respected such as Toyota, Microsoft, Apple, BP. Therefore what is the reason behind the famous and respected of one company?

    It's evident that the most crucial factor to make up a trademark or a company's reputation is price, social responsibility, customer service and public relation, advertising. Then, they are good sales staffs, quality products and services... There are lots of factors, but I can just name some above.

    Firstly, price factor.

    In today's market, more and more enterprises, the competition even fiercer. To survive, each business must have strategies for their own businesses. Having created for their companies' strengths in quality, price and service... Where price is a determinant of competitive advantage. Want to be famous first and foremost to satisfy consumer demand. The company must offer reasonable price for their products, and market prices that consumers accepted. Through price can assess the reaction of customers and competitors. The product is always a matter of concern now because it first affects the income of the business, the company's profits. Along with that, the product also affects the ability to purchase, the customer's buying decision. Marketing strategies can’t be perfect without the pricing strategy. Technology is constantly evolving, leading to price their products is declining. Consumers are increasingly sensitive to price. Competitors always overturn the competitive pricing environment increasingly fierce. But the cycle of prices, pricing for each product will create a separate rhythm that competitors can’t copy and it is an effective pricing strategy. From there, a good pricing strategy helps businesses brand positioning, ensure profitability, given viable business and market dominance. Since it is necessary to have a valuation process for innovative products, breakthrough product and fit for a trading company. When businesses have the ability to control prices and costs, they will gain the initiative - the change in gain competitive advantage, avoiding risky.

    For example, pricing strategies of effective Vinamilk. With unchanged policies, but of higher quality. Vinamilk while ensuring profitability and competing well with other enterprise business. Vinamilk has become well known and respected by consumers.

    Secondly, social responsibility factor.

    Minimize the adverse effects on the environment by following closely the current regulations on the environment of Vietnam Environment Act and Regulations to protect the environment of Toyota Motor Vietnam. Besides, we always keep searching to reduce negative impact on the environment through measures to save energy and resources.

    Maintain an open policy: ready to work closely and enhance sharing information with the environment agency/environmental organizations.

    Reduce the burden of environmental pollution through close control of environmental pollution from the activities of the Company: minimizing the industrial waste, thorough collection and waste treatment with regulations local, Vietnam Environment Act and transferred to the company or unit collection, transportation, processing function is allowed by law.

    Close cooperation between the departments of the company in environmental protection activities and training and disseminate environmental knowledge for all employees in the company.

    Evaluate goals frequently and implementing goals set out above to improve the environment.

    Thirdly, public relation (PR) factor.

    PR is one of the tools to build and brand development. Good PR is essential for a successful business, especially if you are a large company. If you have a good relationship with our customers, which could negatively affect their decision to continue to work with you, the company's reputation as well as diminished. That is the reason why big business is now focused on recruiting people with deep understanding of public relations. Their work is in the public interest, and nothing more than that.


    PR to build good relationships.

    As mentioned above, the image and reputation of the company depends on the relationship with customers is good or not. But before that, need to build beneficial relationships between the staff and the organization, also known as internal PR. This relationship will determine the success or failure of the company.


    PR is a soft skill training for life.

    A public relations manager good grasp not only professional knowledge but also practice the soft skills needed in life. PR people need to have mental acumen, ingenuity and persistence communication, persistence in the media campaign.

PR associated with journalism as a tool to support effective ... In business, PR major impact on sales, branding. Even in the field of entertainment, an artist wants to promote its image to the public also needs good PR skills to impress the public.

    PR has strong growth potential.

    With a dynamic working environment, creativity, meritocracy, PR is slowly becoming a profession to attract young people today .. Once good PR, the brand will never lose.


    Fourthly, customer service factor.

    Customer service is one in the main factors to make a company famous and repected. Why do we must customer service? Customers are where the money comes from, are where make a company famous and respected, so in many ways this is the most important success factor.The purpose of a business is to get and keep customers, so customer service must do before, during and after sales. It includes all kinds of marketing and sales. Effective sales and marketing begins with asking existing what they need, what problem they want solved. By keeping in touch with customers and asking these questions often, you will do a better job of developing customer loyalty and win competition. Customer service is not only its customer focus but also its products. The company should provide good quality products to clients satisfied. It involves tracking competitor actions, analyzing changes in the market environment and adapting according. The key to successful customer service is give them what they need, not just what you want to sell.

    Finally, advertising factor.

    Advertising is considered sharp weapons of companies in competitive period. It’s a important factor to help businesses are known and successful. That is reason why today advertising is cared by businesses, because not only branding but it also brought businesses closer to customers. Not only that, many businesses are using advertising as an useful tool to fight back fake goods are becoming raging now. Because through advertising, businesses promotion brand and introduced our customers the lastest products, with specific identifying characteristics as well as product distribution system through which user can distinguish real goods and fake goods.

    Recently,you have heard about factors to make a company famous and respected . All 5 factor are related to each other and very important . Each factor is an indispensable role in success of a company.

    I don't think those guys in Chinese romance novels are extraordinary. Extraordinary guys are those that have the patience to go with you till the end of the road without letting go. After all, those stories always ended at the so-called "happy ending" wedding, which is actually just the beginning of a lifelong journey. ;)

    Woa, this is not a homework corner, dude. :P Hopefully next time you will be writing your diary post rather than just sharing your presentation from school. If this is intended to be an oral presentation, words will flow from your mouth. Re-writing this with correct grammar won't really help, what you need most is remembering the main points that you would like to get across to the audience, and practice to say it more naturally. Therefore, I'm not going to spend time correcting all the grammars and stuff like that. However, I do have some thoughts that I would like to share after this quite interesting read.

    Is this true? Is the price, or social responsibility, or customer service, or public relation or advertising the most crucial factor that builds the good reputation for a company? The company can have all that but without a good quality product, it will not go very far... Would you buy a motorcycle because it is cheap? Or would you buy a it because it is known to be safe (and cheap)? Would you pick a construction company because they bid with cheaper price? Or would their reputation for well-built architect trump their pricing? IMO, pricing maybe a factor to enter the market but if the company would like to stay to compete in the long run, then good quality product is the key.

    Think of how Apple grows in USA: they started with competitive pricing (or maybe higher, but not by much) as Windows, but provided much better quality product; this helps them build an empire with tons of followers who trust their quality. Then their expansion became more obvious when people were lining up in front of stores to just get their hands on the new version for each product release. At this point when they've just released iPhone 6, their quality has evidently decreased with the "flexible" phone that bends inside your pocket, but their reputation for good quality product still earns them premium price and of course, insurmountable amount of money.​

    I have some more thoughts, but I think I will end this here... Thank God I no longer have to deal with homework. :))


    *****
    I have the same fear... but not because of English. I'm afraid of kids asking me more simple questions about daily life stuff and still I don't know the answers... LOL, I will just make up stuff. :))

    I think everyone is all looking forward to their birthdays and today is my birthday.
    It's a day without any special things having happened to me. I went to school, studied and then came back home.
    But tonight is different.
    I have received gifts and best wishes from friends, even whose I've never met or talked to. That's the thing I can't express. It may be called happy 'cause everyone all care about me, apart from my family.
    My close friends gave me two books I like best but they put them in a big big box. I had thought that it's a bear or a brick =)) 'cause they had said that they'd give me a brick to build a house before I opened this.
    After dinner, I and my family had a small party to happy birthday to me. It's a long time since my family last sat together and talked about many things without any interruptions such as having an unexpected visitor, busy with work or study,...
    When I logged in gacsach, I'm very surprised to find that I've had 25 coins. :confused: First, I thought it's my "salary" the boss sent by mistake. :-? But when realizing that conruoinho has sent to happy birthday me, I'm very happy. Thank Ms Small Fly for that. >:D<
    The gift Gac gave me is so nice. I really like this cover. :"> Thank Gac so much for giving me lots of things I've never receiced before.
    I'm older, more mature. I have a goal to achieve and I'll do my best to do it. Good luck to me! :">
    P/s: It's my birthday so I wanna store my feelings in English in here.
    Even if words can't transmit all my feelings, I wanna thank you all for everything.

    Just finished another book by Murakami: I'm filled with sadness mixed with nostalgic and melancholy about Tsukuru's past. How do you know that this would be the last time you played the piano? How do you know that this would be the last time you talked to someone? How do you know how or when a relationship began and ended? How do you recognize that the event that was happening would be the most beautiful thing that had ever happened to you, and that it would only happen once, and will never happen again? When do we realize that the peak of our youth or the peak of your life have passed?

    Murakami seemed to move away from the surreal world of 1Q84 to return to the real world of Norwegian Wood. While telling the story of one's life, the story of another life is revealed, just like in the real world, all of our lives are interconnected and influence each other one way or another. As if there was a mutual understanding, Murakami let the readers connect the dot and create the ending of the story the way they saw fit, despite the fact that it may take a lot of time to feel for each character's situation - like Tsukuru had taken sixteen years before he could resolve the problem of the heart.

    As usual, Murakami colored his stories with some background music. This time there were Years of Pilgrimage by Franz Liszt and Scenes from Childhood (Traumaiu) by Schumann. For the first time ever I recognized a classical piece mentioned in his novel. Scenes from Childhood was a nocturne linking me and O'Henry's short stories when I was growing up, which made the story so much more sentimental for me than it was supposed to be.

    Colorless Tsukuru... did not have a sad ending, but also not a happy ending. His story and his life continued. Life, always continues without ending. The end of one's life is always the beginning of another. The inbound train for someone is always the outbound train for another. Just like that, it keeps on going.

    People carry such wrong notions about Love. Every time I talk to someone about love it seems like I am discussing a Business issue. Love has become a two way street. People have forgotten that love is a one way street. People are ready to give love only if they are loved. if for a moment you can take a realistic look at your situation the...n you will find out that all your complaints about love have been due to your own doing.

    It's strange but true Love has been reduced to a thing. In love you are not unconditional. Your love is available to other person only if she/he is living up-to your expectations. That's why you fail in love. You are not loving a stone, other one is also a human being. It's like keeping the other in ZOO and telling her/him how she should behave so that you can love her!

    Have you ever thought about it? For a moment think? - Can you accept the other with all positives, negatives, drawbacks and love unconditionally? I doubt so - the reason for it is very simple. You do not love yourself unconditionally! You have not accepted yourself in total.

    This is why you see so many failed marriages. When you are in love, actually you are not concerned about the other. You are excited about what is happening to you when in love. You feel good about life, good about everything around you. In other words in love you are only concerned about what's happening to yourself. The other has never been important to you.

    You cannot love - you have to be the Love itself. When your love is not directed to the external direction, your celebration of love begins, your needs to be filled with love. Then slowly you will see your love will be responded unconditionally. Remember that the whole alchemy of Love is inside you not outside. Love yourself deeply and unconditionally then you are capable of loving the other also.

    Early morning today, I guess It was around 1 or 2 a.m, I went to my bed and I bet I will sleep for next 5 minutes. I checked the calendar as my usual habit before closing my eyes, and I found out that, today is my best friend birthday. How can I forget it? I knew her for more than ten years and It will be longer... But just dont hear her voice, dont see her face, dont have any information from her for a period of time then sometimes I totally forget about her.
    Looked at the calendar, saw this day on it. It was thrilled me.
    I got up, took some beers from the fridge, tried to call her ex-boyfriend and the one who could be her husband. and very soon I recognized it was very stupid idea.
    No one picked up my phone. Of course, how they could do it? Each of them now has a wife on his right side bed, then who want to miss her? Just only me, her poor best friend, still miss her, still remember her, but so funny, she almost forgot if she did not check the date.
    I said to two men who her heart belongs to that they need to move on, it's only thing can help her to relief, but it seems to be I worried for the white teeth of cow, because they all move on, even me...
    But I cant stand of this feeling, just only one and a half year, then no one remember her, even her fiance, her child, specially my Friend, her first love - father of her child - her exboyfriend...
    Friend, suddenly, I miss our past, when we was four, I mean four of us, when we always laugh and I care about nothing. I had you, my best friend, and my second best friend. Why now just only me and you in this very lonely world? Friend, forgive me, just today, let me be submerged by our past...

    Well, hello diary. This thing sounds very stupid but I think I am on the edge of falling in love with a guy. You may think that falling in love with a guy, what's a big deal about that? The problem is I know I shouldnt fall in love with him. He is a good guy, just I know that we are not meant to be together. Our personalities, the way we see the world, the way we want to live our life is very different. Somehow I am the type of girls that are very rational in love. I can have a crush on someone but if I know that he is not suitable with me, then I will immediately stop it before a crush turn into love. But this time, somehow, I know that I should stop but I really want to try. I really want to give it a try even though I know it will go no where.

    Actually, it was me who pay attention to him first. He is not really handsome, he even smokes, which I hate a lot. But dont know why he just caught my eyes. I told myself, being friend is ok. Just being friend with him, that's not a big deal. But I think the more I know him, the deeper feeling I have for him. The way he talks to me makes me feel like to him, I am close, too. He told me many things. But at the end of the day, I know that he didnt think about me the way I think about him. When I know about that, it's hurt at first, then I told myself, my feeling will not go to anywhere anyway. Even I know that we shouldnt be together so what he feels is not a matter.

    But things got pretty serious when I start to think about him when I dont see him. I was so shock when I realized that I was smiling when I remembered about what we had talked with each other. Now I know my feeling is really dangerous right now. I want to be rational like all the other times but the fact that I am seeing him quite often makes it really hard to work. I get jealous over many things he did. I get jealous with his best friends who is a girl and also a friend of mine. I get hurt when he didnt reply my text. I know I should not do that, and that is not even my usual self.

    Now when I know about my feeling, I even think about him more. Now, I am really looking for the summer vacation. At least, I wont see him at that time and it will be chance for me to balance my feeling. TT..TT
