Office Renovation

So our office is going for a major renovation soon… I’ve got too many barang barang after being here for more than 15 years.

Managed to clear quite a bit already….

So empty right! I feel a sense of accomplishment lol.

But after renovation, it’s 100% for sure that I won’t have a seat next to the window anymore. Sigh… There goes my frequent photo taking of the Marina Bay skyline….

Here’s one more to add to my collections then, while I still can!

TI Staycation!

Got a staycation coming up this weekend, just to watch TI!  Hope I can sleep earlier and wake up at around 2~3am to catch all the action on Sat/Sun! Will try and remember to post some pictures here – need to update my blog more!

Already August

I can’t tell if time passes fast, or slow.

It seems fast – it’s already August now.  It was almost yesterday when we just started year 2018!

But it seems so slow…. there’s still 3 more months to my Japan trip!  Ugh……

Can’t really describe my feelings right now.

Cleared my work pretty fast this month… now I’m just waiting for my boss to pull the supplier’s aging report so that I can work on the SOA recon.  Otherwise I’m just sitting here with nothing to do, especially when there’s no emails from suppliers…

Bored out of my mind… wish I could just get home now to play my POE Incursion Flashback event.

Test post from app!

Just testing from my mobile phone… Seeing if this works?

I’ll add in a photo just for the sake of testing….yup.

My uh, collection of King’s Avatar (全职高手)! Loving this Chinese animation / web novel. Have finished reading all 1700++ chapters online, but now rereading it! And still loving it!

Tired as hell

It’s been a hectic two months… I was so busy at work.  New colleague came in on 25th May and I had been spending entire days teaching her from scratch.

Finally managed to finish teaching all the basic stuff yesterday.  Finally had time to take a breather.

Gosh….

Well in the meantime while all these were happening, I have booked yet another trip (?!) to Japan this coming November.  Haha!  Initially it was supposed to be just a last-minute-planned short Hong Kong trip, but as I was looking through the airticket and hotel bookings and overall costs, I realise with just bit more money thrown in, I could go for a simple Tokyo trip! So after a quick discussion with Bruno (he was also willing to save and splurge a bit more for Japan!), we decided to switch our year end short holiday break from Hong Kong to Japan (Tokyo – Asakusa only, to be precise).

Airtickets were becoming expensive and the promo fares that SQ/ANA were offering were long snapped up with others.  What’s left are regular airfares which are really too expensive.  Thankfully JAL still has reasonably-priced airtickets, so I managed to get them! Also, we picked Red Planet hotel to stay as the trip will be in my birthday month and Red Planet offers a whopping 45% discount off their prices to members during birthday month.  So I managed to save quite a bit despite choosing to stay in a pretty popular area.

The itinerary that I’ve drawn up isn’t too ambitious.  I wanted it to be more relaxed but somehow one thing led to another and we ended up having a pretty packed itinerary!  Not that we will be rushing to and fro like headless chickens though, but I have wished it could have been more relaxing… can’t be helped though, there’s really too many things to do/see, and too little time!

So now, what’s left is just the waiting….. 5 more agonizing months to the trip.  Ohhhh it’s time to start that countdown timer widget at the bottom too.

Almost Dead…

Wow it’s been a long time since I last blogged.

It’s been so tiring and exhausting lately, ever since the change in job scope at work. Still trying to settle in to this role of having to talk (email) to random strangers, colleagues at work etc. This is just not me.  I felt so drained at the end of the day – everyday. Sigh.

I desperately need a vacation – but I can’t. I can’t really afford it when I do not know when my Dad will have to be hospitalized again, and whether we will be slapped with another 3k bill again.  My mom has all the money but she refused to pay a single cent.

All these have been affecting my sleep lately… I could be sleepless one night, only to be extremely tired the other day and finally managed to sleep properly.  It’s just a vicious cycle at this point.  I’m just so tired mentally…

Update…!

So yup, as what I mentioned in my previous blog post, there had been a change in my job scope this year.  Instead of processing invoices, now invoice processing has been delegated to my supervisor, while Benson and I took over HER responsibilities.  Reason being she wasn’t able to produce the work that my boss expected from her…  She was supposed to do suppliers reconciliation every year (every month, in fact), but she refused to do it, citing time restriction/limitation as the reason.  So now, that particular duty falls to us.  On top of that, I have to also create ledger cards and maintain the counterparty system, which was something she had been doing all along as well.

So in other words, we are kio-ing her sai, yes.

Sigh.

But honestly, now that I don’t need to do daily invoice processing, my time has been freed up tremendously.  I have days where I literally has nothing to do.  Meh. I’ll see how it goes after CNY.  I have absolutely no mood to learn anything new now anyway.

My dad was warded again.  Apparently he had another silent heart attack….and this time his symptoms were worse than back in August.  I’m not sure what or how to feel about it. I think… 随缘吧。

I’ve been singing a lot at those M-Bar individual KTV booths!  A little expensive but it’s so flexible.  No need for prior booking, no need for a 2hr / 3hr block session etc.

Oh, and I’ve been playing this Travel Frog game Tabikaeru.  I love the froggy so much that I installed it on both my phones! LOL. The froggy is so cute! <3

Yeah the points are a little all over the place in this post… but I don’t really give a damn.  Not really in a mood to write much.

Happy Chinese New Year to all in advance, I guess…?

 

New Phone. New Job Scope. Busy As Hell.

The title says it all.

On a side note, I have updated the Taipei trip in my travel blog.  Feel free to read.

My new phone is my first Huawei phone. So far it’s quite all right.  I bought it for it’s OIS feature in its camera. It was difficult to search for its accessories though… but otherwise the phone seems pretty decent.  Here’s an obligatory shot:

Not bad eh? At least it doesn’t have that irritating blue tint that my Samsung Note 4 used to have when talking photos from this tinted glass at my office.

I’ve got a new job scope – and…. I don’t feel like talking about it right now because it reminded me that I have many things yet to be done and I should be doing them now.  So… I’ll elaborate about it at some point.  For now, I’m just busy as hell….

Happy 2018!

Obligatory post!

Happy new year!

This will be the first year where NO TRIPS are being planned beforehand.  Bruno needs to find a new job and save some money. This is also a year where there’ll be much changes at work.  I’m trying not to feel too stressed about it though.

I was thinking of perhaps going on a solo short trip to Helsinki this year end for a white Christmas, but then the airticket price is REALLY rather off-putting.  Geez.  S$1,270 for a return trip. I can get a 2 pax return airticket to Japan at that price! Yes I know Finland is halfway across the world.. but meh, spending over a thousand dollars for less than a week’s trip sounds really not-that-worth… Meh, we’ll see.

Back from Taipei

So I’m back from Taiwan.

Fell sick while I was there, and also realised at the same time that my phone camera is dying.  Focus is shit, and it lags the whole phone.

Sigh.

Time for a new handphone….?

I need to get the trip written in the travel journal.  But I’m lazy, as usual.  HA HA.

We’ll see if I’ll ever get to it….
