[thoughts]: dare to challenge myself ?!?

I (most of the time) believe that I will do my best in a very challenging or competitive environment. Well, up to this moment, it works most of the time. It doesn’t really necessary work related issues, I also apply it to almost everything, especially to things that I newly exposed to it – well, I value myself not that adventurous despite I like to play RPG games but I feel that I’m playful enough to enjoy every moments including the unpleasant one :p

Anyway, back to the topic, I’m aware too that most of the time, I will go out of the topic when discussing something or even when I’m alone trying to enjoy the silence 🙂

Here is one of the example,

I like to be participated in social activities, especially in helping other people, can be friends, or completely stranger. It doesn’t necessarily big help – I feel – even small helps will do. The point is, I like to see them happy as it makes me feel happy too, really. 🙂

[joke]: 11 rules from world’s sexiest geek

I received this post from one of the group I joined, it’s maybe.. true haha.. (not trying to defend geek here)

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1
Life is not fair – *get used to it!

Rule 2
The world *doesn’t care* about your self-esteem.
The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about
yourself.

Rule 3
You *will NOT* make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4
If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a *boss*.

Rule 5
Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.
Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: *they called it
opportunity*.

Rule 6
If you mess up,* it’s not your parents’ fault*, so don’t whine about your
mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7
Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now.
They got that way *from* paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and
listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you
save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try
delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8
Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life *HAS NOT*.
In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as
MANY TIMES
as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest
resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9
Life is not divided into semesters.
You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping
you FIND YOURSELF.
Do that on your *own time*.

Rule 10
Television is *NOT real* life.
In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11 (Don’t like this one but so true)
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up *working for one*.

It’s more than just the cups

I got this story from a mailist I joined, then made a small effort to translate it before I put it here. I like post and I hope you like it as well.

One day, there is a small reunion of some friends who used to work for the same company. Firstly, they started of their career from low bottom and now, most of them have been on a high position in some large companies. Then, someone has the idea to pay a visit to their very first boss of their company, where they used to work together.

One of them contacted their boss and discussed what the best time for them to come is.

Trying to keep my feet on the ground

Heiyaa..

I know, it’s been a while I haven’t really writing my blog. I’m still adjusting my lifestyle after, officially, work. There are lots of things happened within last month. Maybe I can wrap up some points and share with you all.

First thing, is about my new workplace.
I work as web developer in a translation company. I only know about this line of industry after I join the company. I think, it’s not really popular thing in my country, but since there are different races and languages in Singapore, this line may be popular. 😉

“It is easy enough to be pleasant when life flows by like a song. But the man worthwhile is one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.” Ella Wheeler Wilcox 1850-1919, Poet

Work work work

Wahoo..!

It’s been a while haven’t write about my daily activities. 🙂

These past few days were passing slowly until Sunday night. I was finally able to stay at home and watch movie on Friday because I tried to finish the things before going to work on next week. 🙂

Since obtaining my EP, I was planning to enjoy my day before entering the working world. 😀

Anyhow, I was not be able to fully enjoy that week, it was quite a busy week :p

Anyway, my first day was this Monday. I was so nervous. Just scared that something went wrong :p But, it went well though. I was introduced to many new people, and I hope that I could remember their names :p

Today, I was having new assignment after studying the system for half day…

So for tomorrow, I have to work hard!!!
Osh!

[discussion]: too busy with myself?

I’m trying to have some quiet time for myself every morning around 15 minutes. Or you can call it, I’m practising to meditate.

I started to realise that every time I began my day with even just brief quiet time, I felt I can pass that day with peace.

My current activities are shifting from job hunting to working preparation. Getting the employment permit done, looking for working shoes, reporting to my country embassy here, opening bank account, and many other administrative works (that excludes the shopping though haha :P)

Finally…

If people said that a mile journey starts with small single step, I guess, I did some of my early small steps.

I obtained my Employment Pass today.

Within the last 24 hours, I was rushed here and there.

Here’s some yesterday’s flash back….

Yesterday, I was planning to go to Funan Digital Life mall, to check about my laptop. It was broken since two months ago. It was repaired and broken afterwards. However the last one, really beyond my ability. Anyway, I had my lunch then I decided to visit the clinic I had my medical check up two days ago, to see whether I can collect the result since the nurse told me in the morning that it might be finished after lunch. She told me that I can collect it after 230pm waiting the doctor to sign the result.
I was wondering, will I be able to finish all my errands by today?
