I Am Back Blogging Again ...

I know. I neglected my blog again. Ha .. not funny, really. I've been busy the past 10 months till the point I actually don't bother blogging anymore. Just imagine working from morning till late night consistently throughout the week. Any free time will thus be devoted to sleeping, facebooking, surfing, sleeping, working at home (what!), sleeping again, eat, TV, family, sleeping ... haha ...

Fast forwarding to 2011, erm ... more specifically March 2011 ... now ... I told myself that I need to change. I don't see why I need to push to the max anymore because the progress I hoped for is not moving as fast I would like it to be anyway. The past 10 months is seriously eating me up already and I decided that it is not worth it and to give myself a little breathing space. I want to have a more active and healthy lifestyle, I want to do some travelling around, I want to meet different people, and I want to experience something more than I did in 2010. Not saying that 2010 is a bad year...just that 2010 is an eye opener :)

Anyway, how's life since leaving my blog untended. Hmm ... let's see ...

I can finally stop eating all the tuberculostatic drugs, what like after almost a year eating it every single day.

 

My last x-ray and body check-up was in August. The next one will be in August 2011. Doctor said that my lungs will take a couple of years to cure completely. Apparently, there are still scars (called fibrosis) on the surface. Umphh ... (another reason for me to take it easier this time around eh!)


I'm still single ... haha ... actually it is not funny because the pressure from the elders are truly overwhelming, I don't like it one bit. I say, when the time comes, the time will come. Do I really need to be attached, get married immediately, have kids and everything ... like right now and before I reach 30?


At work, as mentioned, I've been very busy indeed. I do enjoy some part of my work, yes, especially the challenges. When I want to accomplish something I always do the best I can and push to the max. It sounded silly sometimes but maybe I give in too much without realizing it occasionally. You see, people's recognition of me is extremely important to me. I need to know that I am appreciated, the stuff that I am doing is benefiting others and I can see where I am heading.

Family: Why are you working so hard for har? You getting 5K salary or more ah?
Me: Erm ... no la ...I'm still young ... just want to show what I can do, my dedication to my work & climb up the career ladder faster only mar ... nothing wrong right?
Family: Nothing wrong of course ... just that you have no life lately ... look at you now ... do you want to wait till you fall sick then you stop, is it? ... just like what happen in 2009? You still need time to recover you know!
Me: Erm ... (stoned!) 

Friends: Aiyah ... why are you working so hard for? Salary low ... work like cow ... even people who didn't do as much work as you earning way more than you lar ... not worth it at all ... not worth it 
Me: Erm ... they have experience and have been working longer already mar. I've just started ... and after all, wherever you go it is the same lar ... so have to work hard to climb faster mar ... correct or not?
Friends: Look at us lar ...been working long enough already ... we are still just here, just the same ... experience is nothing if you can't do the work properly, right? It is so obvious ... 
Me: Erm ... okay ... but hey I have friends working in the same line climbing so fast and earning double of mine already. I can also do it what. Just need more time.
Friends: Okay! You wait and see lah ... but why the hell you go and compare yourself with your friends for? 
Me:  (stoned!) ... erm ... because I believe I can do it too?

Me: Hey! I've been here for sometime already. Do you know what am I doing here and what is my daily job like?
Friend: Erm ...
Me: ...
Friend: Well ...
Me: ...
Friend: You know ... planning ...and erm ...well ... for the team and all ...
Me: (jaw drop and feeling like my heart just fell 1 notch)  ... (Is that all I do in front of you all this while? Is that all? Seriously?)

Okay! Enough with all the negativity above because I am looking forward to this year and how it will unfold this time around. I still enjoy some part of my job ... though I hate that some of it is becoming some sort of  a routine. When people have different projects every time, I am stuck doing the same thing. I have to be more positive and believe that all will not go down the drain. After all, I think I have definitely achieved some of the objectives written here already.

 

Am I getting richer in the past 10 months? Or having more savings just for the future. Well, far from it actually. Study loan, car loan, parents, petrol, food, other necessities, the list goes on and on. By month's end, I am left with so little I think it will take me another 50 years to have a comfortable savings to spend. Not to mentioned, someone owe me money and I'm still trying to get my money back ... hmph... that's worth more than an iphone. I don't mind really lending people money. That is what family and friends are for right, looking after each other's back and giving a hand in time of need. But, that ... yes I have learnt my lesson ...that is to lend to people worth lending only. 


Talking about study loan, I applied for an exemption 6 months back because I got a 1st class honour. Unfortunately, I graduated in the wrong year, I think. The #@%$ government stopped the exemption policy in 2005 but then decided to reinstate it back beginning 2010. What about students who graduated between 2005 and 2010. Unimaginably silly. Not fair at all. Why are we left out?


Last but not least, I am still iphone4-less. I would like to have one so badly for a long time already. I tried getting one few weeks ago when Maxis visited AABC. But, their plan sucks big time. So called sister-brother company eh ... what's with the expensive plans and 'keep us tied up forever' contract? I am currently looking at ways to get an affordable unlocked version outside. Any ideas where can I get one?


That's about it for now. Till the next post ... ciao.
