Think Why first then How
I clarify and analyze the cause behind the problems before I start thinking about the solutions. I believe that clearly understanding the problem is the first and most important step in finding the right solution.
Analyze before Act
I don’t react to issues. I gather facts, analyze and develop most sensible and appropriate action plan based on analysis, knowledge and experience.
Value Quality than Quantity
I value the quality of work more than the volume of work. I want to feel proud in what I do and put my name on, not just get the work done as much as possible.
Own Mistakes and Learn
I take responsibilities for my mistakes and learn from it. I don’t just sit back and not bother trying because of fear of making mistakes. Nobody is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. I believe that making mistakes is just part of learning. We will fall in our journey but will get up together much stronger each time.
Think, Plan and Do!
I am a thinker and planner but more importantly I am a doer who is ready to get hands dirty and work together with the team to get the job done. I enjoy walking with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the doers and the problem solvers who are honest, open minded and believe in “We are in it together, let’s work together to make it happen!”.
Believe in Simplicity
I believe in beauty of simplicity. Breaking down the complexity, making things clear and simple allows us to identify what is necessary and important, and focus our energy on those important things to get the job done.
Build the Trust and Respect
I believe that there is no ‘team’ without trust and respect. I work on building trust and respect by being honest, doing my best and listening to others. I believe that collaboration happens naturally when the team build the trust and respect for each other.

I am a listener, analytical/logical thinker, technology generalist, problem solver and the doer with heads in the clouds and feet on the ground.
I would LOVE, LOVE to walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the doers, the problem solvers and the listeners who are open minded for changes, and believe in “We are in it together, let’s go!”.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something with my techie hat on, so I decided to share couple diagrams I’ve made while back to explain how SAML works.
I am not going to do a whole lecture on what SAML is on this post but here is a brief explanation for those who may not know what it is and are wondering. 🙂
What is SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language)?
- It’s an XML-based, open-standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider.

On my subway ride to work, I sometimes think about how ideal “me” at work would behave. This morning, I decided to write my thoughts down as I was listening to new songs that I downloaded on my iPod. Here is my rule of thumb that I try following to become a better “me” at work. I think it would be awesome too if everyone at work try to follow these rules… Just a thought. ^^*;
Observe and listen,
Investigate and analyze,
Engage and document,
Ask and clarify.
Think logically and creatively,
Collaborate and formulate solutions that make sense,
Make decisions based on facts, but also
Believe in intuition and experiences.
Work with the team with confidence, patience and trust,
Give credit where credit is due,
Argue with constructive reasonings,
Look for improvements and opportunities,
…And ultimately be responsible, humble and honest.
