Langkawi Chronicles:Shell-Out@De Boys Cafe

On a whim, Boss Lady and I decided to grab some simple rice & seafood dinner.

Checked on FB and came on to a post about a newly opened beachside eatery called De Boys Beachside Cafe and after perusing a couple of pages it seemed like a good deal.

Got lost along the way. :)

Thank heavens the chap from the cafe came to our rescue on his motorbike and led us to his place.

The place is nice and quaint, smack dab on the beachside complete with the salty tang of seabreeze, perfect for Shelling-Out.

Then came the food.

And this is Boss Lady starting the meal.

Fare thee well

Had to let go one of my team member today. This is now the hardest task yet in trying to administer staff discipline.

The staff is a fairly good one, mostly reliable (orang Malaysia kata 'okay-lah') and always respectful, even during disagreements with his team members.

However his attendance is less than acceptable, prone to being absent from work. What is due has been done - counseling, briefings, the obligatory show-cause and warnings, but he broke the camel's back recently.

So I had to let him go.

The hardest thing I had to do this year.
