another friday entry
friday is the bestest day of the week
work is more enjoyable knowing that there are two days of rest awaiting you
work is going to get more challenging
going to move on to cover another's colleague work as she goes on maternity leave
boss asked if i am going to surrender aka am i going to give up and leave
i told her no. because i promised her during my interview that 'yes, i am able to commit six months'
so i am going to stay put to stay true to my words
but i hope i can learn and pick up things faster
either due to the lack of sleep or sub-conciously my brain refused to take in new information
don't seem to be concentrating on picking up the job scope of my colleague before she goes on maternity leave
i can do it! must believe that i can handle more difficult things!
but i do see some of the positive qualities of my friends at work rubbing on me. i am to be like them sometimes because they give people the feeling that 'you can always depend on me'. and they are very positive and bright also :D
i think my boss has a flair of making people comfortable around her even though she is the boss. She dont have jia4 zi3 but still have the required sense of authority. and she is great at convincing people! maybe all hr managers are like that. i stare at her sometimes then jaw drops hehe
today is friday. tomorrow is saturday. the day after is sunday.
for now, forget about the days after sunday

last day of chinese new year break
during the past weeks at work have been looking forward and counting down to cny
nothing to look forward to at work tmr le :/
past few days at home or out was a good break!
when down to china town at night on cny'eve
quite horrible yah many many many people and sticky grounds because of litter and everyone like squashed together trying to make their way through
it was an experience lar because cny mood is high over there lar
ha but once is enough :D prefer to stay home and watch cny countdowns on tv in the newyears-to-come
papa and mama -cny's eve at chinatown 08
me and my sisters after bai nian at ahma's house on first day of new year
somehow as i grow older will become more self-conscious and more foreign to the surrondings and people whom i hardly see. it really takes alot of effort to keep relationships going tough and maintain closeness with people. it takes time, proximity and an open mindset
snapped some photos of my desk at workplace
this is where i spend most of my time during the past month as well as the months to come
quite an open area because it's near the door so people keep walking past
near the pantry, printer, toilet and shredder
heard stories of shredder squashing toddlers' fingers and yah still feel goosebumps sometimes when using the machine
spending my last day of new year break at home!
home is the safest place. a place where you can let down all defences and be yourself

my first pay cheque!
my first paycheque is here!
but oddly the anticipated excitement upon receiving my paycheque did not happen to me
maybe it is because i didn't feel like i am working veryvery extremely hard and here's the reward for my hard work kind of thing
but having a salary means i get to pay for my own things, spend out of my own keep
must start budgeting already i am overspending!
chinese new year is around the corner
but i am still without new year clothes because i failed to shop for any that i like ):
it isnt like new year clothes are important to me lar because actually i don't really mind wearing old ones anyway
but it sort of dampen the new year spirit
anyway i am still looking forward to new year not just because of the food or angpows
but more important to me is the longlong chinese new year break to let me have a breather
worklife isnt really hectic for me nor are the working hours irregular or blah
but i just muchmuch prefer to school or to rest at home or to go out
something like looking forward to every weekend
actually this should be quite common to everyone
just that this longing for a break i feel is sort of too overwhleming for me lar
hope this will tone down after i grow used to the idea of working and not run away
tomorrow is sunday(: a good day except the notion that on monday it's a work day again
am going to stay home i suppose
and re-watch my coffeeprince on vcd woohoo-
