A Peaceful Week

Managed to score a few firsts this week. As you all probably already know, this week marks my first week at my new working place. First day was fine…. Not WOW…. Basically cos my boss is still on MC…. for another good 3 weeks. She only left me some files to read… hoping I can get by the next 3 weeks without feeling bored! Oh well! But…. There really isn’t many files to go through lor….cos my job function is a brand new one. Nothing much has been done till date…. so I spent the rest of the week working…AND RE-working my proposal on what I hope to achieve in this position. Haha! Thank goodness for inputs from some more senior colleagues… I was able to produce a “meaty” plan… well… at least it looks “meaty” to me lah! Friday was so much better, coz Big Boss started to tell me the other stuff i am expected to follow-up with.... so i will be busy from next week. Yay! Finally! Colleagues are fine as well….. Not WOW too…. Not the over chatty species found in the M’ship Office @ S_ _ _A…Neither

Colleagues turned Friends.... :)

The Final Count Down...

Friday's my last day at S_ _ _A. Been staying back to finish up all outstanding work. It is only when one is leaving, that one realises how many things we have done and acheived during our stay with the company. Stuff which seems so trivial, becomes important to pass on to the next person. This proves how comfortable I was, that every task comes like a breeze to me. :) Having mixed feelings about leaving. I know I will miss the people, as much as frustrations kick in once in a while due to the various reasons we all already know (esp. to those who follow my blog). But work here has been quite stagnant.... not been learning much... and no motivation AT ALL... So...guess a change is really what I need. Something to get me sit up and BE interested again. Challenges are coming up at my new place.... but dun know how I can take it... coz i BADLY need a break. The idea of having to start a brand new job right after leaving the old one is not exactly my way to a new start. Not much of

Weddings...

4 down, 6 more to go. This is not including those I have to attend with Hwa. Everyone’s getting married, which means we are all getting old. Haha! Last Sunday's was at Shangri-La. The invite stated dresscode: Formal. I looked at it and pondered for quite a while. I was unable to make out what formal really meant. Din want to turn up neither under-dressed nor overdressed. It didn’t help when I wasn’t feeling sociable last evening. Anyways… appeared in a green and white ensemble. Not too casual… but good enough for a wedding I thought. But alas… just like what I feared… I was underdressed. People were in gowns and bow-ties! **Faintzz** Good thing, the rest of the peops at my table were underdressed too! So din feel all that awkward after all. It has been some time since I met up with the ACJC council people. While in school, I was one of the quieter ones (I think I was! hahah), and I never really liked to hang around the rest of the council people. In fact I try to avoid them. Just h

Efficiency

The day started at 7.30am, where I made my way to the ICA building to collect my new biometric passport. Was expecting a crowd since it is their usual peak period.... however, what greeted me was, snakes of people.... queuing JUST to get into the building. It took a good 10 to 15 minutes before i set foot in the building. Haven't been to the immigration place for ages.... but the last time I was there.... I dun recall having such strict controls on how people enter and leave the building. The senario was exactly like how it was featured on The Straits Times last week. Anyway, once inside, I mentally prepared myself for a long wait. But guess what..... I was served in 10min, despite the fact that when I got the queue number, there were close to 70 peops in queue. Counter ladies were working their hearts out... and what makes all these happen is probably a carefully thought through service process. Kudos to everyone at ICA & Immigrations. They truly showed people what effici

ProCreation - PART 2

A colleague who is on maternity leave came back to visit with some cakes for her baby's one-month. Had a little chat about her "ordeal". Started to have second thoughts about having kids. Yeah Yeah.... it is one of those times again where stories scare the hell out of me! ..... Her water bag burst early in the morning, and she had enough time to take a shower before checking herself into the hospital. Advice from new mothers:- take a shower when u can... otherwise it is NO BATHING at all during confinement. She happily checked herself into hospital... and the wait begun. After 10 hours... she haven't had contractions nor dilations..... OK... the wait continued. 15 hours later, still nothing. Finally.... after 1 whole day... she threw in the towel and opted for a ceasarian or is it c-section..... hmmm watever, i think u guys get the drift. She was telling me the part where they administered the anesthetic. She felt her back cramping...and losing the feel at her bot
