My only grouse about my new job is that… it’s causing me to be constipated. I don’t have time to drink water, or buy fruits to eat. I used to finish at least 500ml of water daily. Now, even if I buy a drink after lunch, I might not be at my desk to finish it, then it goes to waste. /sadface
Gawd. Constipation is the worst feeling in the world man. And you know what follows after constipation? Pimple outbreak from all the toxins still in the body. NOT looking forward to that. I’m drinking 5 bottles of Yakult tonight.
It’s been a long day. I am thankful for being able to meet that one person in this lifetime.
The ethernet adapter on my PC went kaput yesterday. I have no Internet connection. Using my brother’s laptop to blog now. >.>
This year is damn 破财. Cannot take it anymore. 🙁
It was BJ’s birthday on the 12th, PN’s and 老爹’s on the 15th, and MZ’s on the 17th. MZ’s in US till end of next week, so we’ll only meet up after she’s back. Think CS is organising something (shoots an arrow in CS’s way). Wahaha. 😀
We went to Kulai Khan at Park Mall for 老爹’s birthday dinner. Food wasn’t too fantastic, and the guy who was frying vegetables gave me a fright. >.> My new bosses brought me to a fantastic drinking and foodie place last Friday, so I might suggest to JJ to go there for her birthday celebration in July. I think she’ll love it. 🙂
长今 Was Here!

Pai gave me this book as a farewell gift. I’m currently on Chapter Seven: A Most Extraordinary Garden where I come across this part:
All I’m really getting at is that if you want to improve your life and live with all that you deserve you must run your own race. It doesn’t matter what other people say about you. What is important is what you say to yourself. Do not be concerned with the judgement of others as long as you know what you are doing is right. You can do whatever you want to do as long as it is correct according to your conscience and your heart. Never be ashamed of doing that which is right; decide on what you think is good and then stick to it.
These words hit me like an arrow in the heart. I always try to do the right thing, but I realised that doing the right thing (by my standards. And yes, that link there is just for laughs. :p) does not please everyone! So I mucked around for a while trying to please the people around me and was really unhappy. Now I do what I think is right, but I still worry about making everybody happy. Of course I know that we can never please everybody, but I’m programmed to want to make everybody happy, so this thing is just constantly nagging at the back of my mind. So what I end up doing is, being a poker faced person who does the right thing (again, by my own standards.) and trying very hard to ignore other people’s feelings, which essentially makes me a selfish person.
It’s late (according to my body clock) now and I have no freaking idea what I’m typing. But what I wanna say is, I hate myself for wanting to please everybody and that I agree with that block of text up there, but following it makes me uncomfortable with that incessant nagging in my mind. Rawr.
Time flies when you’re having fun (or just being plain busy). It’s the end of my first week of work at Convertium. I have no time to blog during office hours and I’m always out gallivanting after work… so, here’s an update today. Haha. :p
Due to lack of space in the office, I have my own room at work (My AC08 captain immediately asked if we had vacancies when he heard I have my own room hahaha). It’s a little semicircle shaped room that overlooks Chinatown. I call it the ‘little red room’ cos of the double red doors. When I have things to discuss with my colleagues, I’ll ask them if they’d like to join me in the little red room. Haha. It looks quite nice, but I don’t have my own drawers so I can’t put too much stuff in the office.
I use Vista at work, and Microsoft Office 2007. Love MS Office 2007, but hate Vista for being slow on startup, otherwise it’s quite ok usually. Work-wise, the amount of technology we talk about at work is orgasmic. And we have a great design team as well. I’m really impressed by their work, cos I can’t design for nuts. Hahaha. And yes, my Operations Director wasn’t kidding me when she said they eat, live and breathe The Internet. I love the work we do. 🙂 The Internet used to be my hobby, now it’s my work. Amazing feeling.
And Nick Pan is my colleague? I used to read Pearl Pan’s blog a long time ago, when I first got to know the protag gang.
My boss’s last words to me end of yesterday was, “So fast it’s a week. Before you know it, it’ll be ten years.” Now, that’s a scary thought, another 10 years of the Internet? Hahaha. And yes, he reads my blog! He’s the ultimate web stalker. He knows my deepest darkest Internet secrets. Hahaha.
It was my last day of work on Monday. Wanted to have a low key last day, but a couple of my colleagues came to my cubicle specially to say good bye to me, so I felt bad if I didn’t take photos with them. And taking photos with one or two people means it’ll be bad if I don’t take photos with the rest of them. Haha. :p
I saved the photos as contact photos in my Centro’s contacts and were unable to extract them out. But they get synced with my Outlook so here’s a printscreen collage.
It was a short 9 months (enough time to have a baby!), but I made a lot of friends within this time period, and even got the chance to participate in the M1 Asia Challenge (which allowed me to make even more friends. :p), which was quite an experience. 🙂
I’m starting work at Convertium as a Project Executive this coming Monday. Looking forward to it. Don’t really know what to expect. Hehe.
