Not being two-faced
steptacular
Just a thought regarding a post I have seen on Facebook: Being nice to people you don't like is not being two-faced; it is called growing up. In my opinion, this is well said and something I can relate to. Probably because in the working environment, you will get to meet more people who annoys the hell out of you and are in who way of ever becoming friends with but you still have to maintain a certain amount of EQ when dealing with them. I have learnt in University days that no man is an island and nobody can truly succeed on their own. I am certainly going to follow this phrase and make it my personal motto.

My bossy nose
steptacular
Can people ever become allergic to a particular surrounding? I do. Everytime I am over at my student's place for tuition and I developed runny nose symptoms. At first I thought well I must be due to all that cigarette smoke that I am breathing in but today I am still having such symptom even though the father was not at house. I think my nose is trying to tell me something: stop tuition!

Dear big flat nose of mine,
Don't worry. O level is in going to take place in another two weeks. You will just have to learn to behave for another two more weeks. In the meantime, please let the legs stop the running.

Winning the taxi drivers' vote
steptacular
Read a news report that if Dr Tony Tan is elected as our next president he will raise the maximum working age for taxi driver to 75 and have a model taxi driver award.

I don't think this will encourage voters to vote for him. Most the taxi drivers I have met are always complaining about how tough fheir job is and how miserable their pay is so I can't picture taxi uncles rejoicing over such news. I wonder is this a tactic to win the taxi drivers' vote since they are often the harshest critics of the government.

Depression

Feeling awfully depressed for the past 2 weeks. I think I have not felt so depressed since army days. Feel so frustrated about work - so much things to do and so little time to do them.

Twelve cupcakes
steptacular
After much procrastination, I finally bought myself the long awaiting twelve cupcakes that I have been reading about from Daniel Ong's twitter. My favourite is the Bailey Chocolate flavour. Even though the cup cake is a little expensive ($3 a piece), i find that a little indulgence once in a while is satisfying.  They are much better than expected because I read that bad cupcakes can be very dry but not these, they are good .So I will recommend you to drop by United Square to test it yourself. It is a pity that I didn't get to buy the red velvet that I have been wanting to try on. The down side is that United square is too inconvenient and the cupcakes sell fast so there are usually none left by the time i leave the office (stall closes at 9pm)

This is your life
steptacular
This is your life.
Do want you love and do it often
If you don't like something, change it
If you don't like your job, quit
If you don't have enough time, stop watching TV
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love
Stop over analyzing, life is simple
All emotions are beautiful
When you eat, appreciate every last bite
Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences
Ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them
Travel often, getting lost will help you find yourself
Some opportunities only come once, seize them
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating
Life is short, Live your dream and share your passion

Dream about my job
steptacular
I had a dream about my boss talking to his boss about the section organization changes. In it he said I was leaving. Is this a premonition? I am super bothered by this thought.

independent worker
steptacular
I remember saying to my ex-boss that I am an independent worker during my interview. Fast forward 10 months, I find it difficult without having my boss to give me guidance and direction. Am I going back on my own words now? The past few yield loss cases have got me thinking: Is it because my boss thinks that I am managing fine without him, so he doesn't step in?

Almost 1 year working anniversary
steptacular
 It is going to be my one year anniversary for working in TECH/Micron. Coming August 1st, it will be my official 1 year of adult work-hood and so much happened over the past year   that  has made me realized that you cannot always get what you want. Good things will happen to you but very often, we encounter more misfortune than we will like to. The important things are to surround yourself with positive energy and not to take criticism personally. We all strive to achieve work-life balance but as the saying goes "when you are young, you use health to earn wealth but when you are old, you use wealth to buy health". Work-life balance is a mystical treasure that every worker tries to chase after. Congrats if you have accomplished your quest, well done! and for those who have fallen behind, it is time to leave the dark side and not dwell in solitary.Let's all move away from this zero sum game

It is going to be my one year anniversary soon and I have made plans for my next move. This past year has been a wonderful experience and I have developed into a stronger individual. I think  we have to keep moving if we want to  have progress and further improve ourselves. Staying in our comfort zone will only make us deteriorate. I am looking forward to more challenges ahead.
