Auditing relationships

Relationships are like auditing.

First, you got to understand the client's background and it's business process as well as it's operations.

You got to look as past year financial statements to determine how it has been performing thus far. If you are relying on internal controls, I.e whatever the client tells you, you got to make sure there are measures to ensure the controls are in place.

When there are differences within the threshold, leave it. But when it's so substantial that it's above the threshold, you got to investigate and account for the difference. Get the explanation from the client and retrieve supporting documents if possible. Basically to reduce the unexplained differences to below the threshold so that you can q it.

But there are certain accounts that are in nature very important such that any difference have to be accounted for, irregardless of how material it is. Just like in a relationship, there are certain things that one cannot accept, no matter how tiny it is, it just can't be tolerated

Psst; q means to ignore, in my auditing terms.

When the accounts are so bad that they have to be qualified( which is bad), I suppose you've got to relook whether you will wanna continue on the engagement or do sth to make sure that the accounts can be unqualified ( which is good)

Went out for therapy session on Saturday. It sire works well (: with new clothes and yummy food, how can I not be happyyyy! (:

I bought the top last week with Pearlyn. Heh, I think I look like a flamenco dancer wannabe, speaking which, I didn't get the chance to watch a live performance when I was in Spain. Upset ): boohoo, the next time I go, I must watch the dance!

So what's a flamenco dance?

Flamenco dance (baile) is a highly-expressive, Spanish dance form. The flamenco is a solo dance characterized by hand clapping, percussive footwork, and intricate hand, arm and body movements.

Flamenco Technique:

With roots in Indian, Arabic, Spanish cultures, flamenco dance is known for its sweeping arm movements and rhythmic feet stomping. Flamenco dancers spend a great deal of time practicing and perfecting the often difficult dance. Although there is no single flamenco dance, dancers must follow a strict framework of rhythmic patterns. The steps a dancer performs are dependent on the traditions of the song being played. Perhaps the greatest joy of flamenco dancing is watching the personal expressions and emotions of the dancer, which change many times during a single performance.

The Flamenco Dancer:

Flamenco dancers, known as bailaores and bailaoras, are serious and passionate. Typical of flamenco dance, a dancer will often stand motionless and free of expression for the first few moments of a song. As he or she begins to feel the music, the dancer might begin a steady beat of loud hand clapping. Then, as emotion builds, the dancer will begin a passionate dance. The dancing often involves fierce stomping, sometimes made louder with percussion attachments on the shoes, and graceful arm movements. Castanets are sometimes held in the hands for clicking, and folding fans are occasionally used for visual impact.


Who wants to be my flamenco dance partner! (;

I walked out from the opposite store, when I saw this beauty being hung up on display, and i was pointing at it with immense excited and exclaimed : OMG! I WANT THAT! and I just zooomed over.
