这几天好不顺心,整个人老是担心不已,我知道是本人想太多,造成了自己的困扰,可能这就是所谓的低潮期吧。

之前在大老板的决定下换了部门,由于在工作岗位上不长而没有什么信心,又不知道这个部门到底做些什么,所以一开始总是积极做事,虚心接受。可久而久之,你就发现这种行为会被当成理所当然,而你想表达你的看法时,可能就不当成一回事。直到忍无可忍的时候,就好像被拉紧的橡皮筋突然之间断了似的,要是幸运遇到谅解你的队友,工作态度上会有改进,不然,局面将会尴尬,而队友只会觉得你做些事也不愿意。说实话,我其实没什么选择,做的事情更本不是我的强项,之前对这方面也没有经验。

在这种情况下,令人生气的不是工作,而是态度。职场新人必须吃苦耐劳这很多人都明白,但老将至少谅解一下新人也无妨吧。

在大公司里,大多数人工作都是为了生计,有人工作经验多,有人经验少。经验多的人没有必要给工作经验少的人脸色,大家都是混口饭吃,每天天大部分时间都面对着对方,若能够相互谅解和包容,同事相处之间和乐融融,这至少为人生的三分之一省了心。

也许你觉得我要求过高,可有哪个人不希望自己能够开开心心的工作? 也许是受了前老板的影响,合作的非常愉快,但现实其实没有那么容易遇到吧。

很感谢一路上鼓励我的朋友和老公,让我明白工作外还有很多的乐趣,要继续充实自己的生活才是王道。

现在只要管好自己的工作,别和那些干扰心情的人靠的太近,我得继续努力寻找自己的一片天空呀。

Came across this article on Facebook and I guess it's interesting!

Better earning power comes with higher spending power too. Have you wonder money is always not enough though you just had an increment? You got your bonus? You survive on 3k now but 10 years down the road, you cant survive though you have 5k or 7k.

It's all depends on your spending habits and your expectation. You want to go to atas restaurant to show your status, you want to carry luxury goods, you want to chill with friends at a bar. All this expenses increase as you have more money, this lead to, you are spending more even though you are earning more as well.

"However, I understood something important: you don’t have to open your wallet every time you want to have a good time."

This post is slightly more extreme and I felt that everyone is free to tweak around according to their own needs. Most importantly, it allows one to rethink of the expenses that one is spending right now!

Happy new year 2017! Time flies and CNY is round the corner already. Visited Malacca on last Friday to Saturday, understand that the time was kinda short but I did not want to squeeze with the long weekend crowd so yeah!

The last time I visited Malacca was when I was still in Secondary school. So it has been 10 years and I do not really remember it anymore. This trip was kinda last minute and we booked everything about 1-2 weeks before, lucky that Malaysia is really near and transports are very frequent.

We took the 8am bus from kitchener road and reached hotel Equatorial at about 2.15pm. Took us some times as Tuas exit was having slight jam, we were at the check point at about 11am. We had Ramly burger for brunch, it's the authentic one! If you didn't know, That’s because the Ramly beef and chicken patties, the essence of what a Ramly burger is all about, has been banned in Singapore for some time. The meat looks abit different from Singapore's version.

So once we reached the hotel, we unpacked and went out to hunt for food! 



We walk to the Christ Church Melaka and then the Jonker street. There's so many fooooood. We had the yuan yang laksa and chendol at unit 88. The queue is kinda long and very crowded. You can choose to take away the food. 



We then had this durian puff which was recommended to have it within one mouth. The cream just WOOOSH! And the taste is kinda solid. 

We had this BBQ corn as well, the taste is really BBQ! haha, but it's kinda biggg, and we snack along the way, so better to have more people to share with you.

Had Henna too! So nice and it lasted me more than a week. The cream is kinda strong and my hand was abit itchy after 20 mins. I did one in Bali and the itch came in after almost one hour. haha.

We had Hokkaido cheese tart, just realised the brand is actually from Malaysia so it's cheaper and very common in Malaysia.

We went nearby to have a massage session too! The famous thai massage sis fully booked for two days so tsk. We went to the one next door instead. My legs felt quite shiok so I think it's not bad too lah, haha, about 80 RM for 70 mins. :D.

Next day, we had this for breakfast near our hotel. The meatball noodle taste good and wanton mee is not bad as well, think $3.5rm each hehe.

We then head off to baba charlie for their Nyonya kueh and baba low for the penang laksa.


I regret not getting more kueh there as the one with the pandang leave and bazhang is really nice!! Forgot to bring carry bag for the trip so I can't get any additional stuff. :(. Malacca has lots of food and I'm sure I will revisit again! From Melaka sentral to Singapore woodland check point, the whole period took about 3.5 hr, including 20 mins toilet break in btw. It's highly recommended to travel during non peak/weekday for the ease of jam and check point queuing. So, till next time! :)

Hello,

It's been a while since I'm here and actually, just wanted to share a review on this beauty centre so that more people can take note of it when they visit this shop. 

There's 5 branches in Singapore under this brand name and I visited the Tampines outlet. I did some research beforehand and the reviews on fb were all not bad. I purchased the $78 groupon which said to be include the following services: 

https://www.groupon.sg/deals/singapore/the-best-beauty-centre/96177709


I was thinking, great bargain, I can go for a more natural look and its only $78 instead of the usual $300+ in the market. I immediately fixed an appointment on the following Saturday.

Once I enter the shop, the counter person gave me a list of example on the tablet and ask me which one I was looking for. I look through and it looks the same to me, so I point to one of the photo and showed to her. She asked the beautician came and talk to me, she then point to a table of price list (if I did not remember wrongly):

Basic: 188
Manual: 380 
3D: 600
Something else: 900
Another one: 2000 or something

She: The package you purchase has a value of 188, you can get the basic one, but it will be very light and not nice, it will be only one stroke along your eye lash. (I assume she meant the below pic, just that it will be just one stroke) http://s1244.photobucket.com/user/eyesandcandies/media/step2-0001.jpg.html.
Me: But your groupon is showing this eye liner image.
She: *Laughs* the image is too exaggerating, we will not do this, it will scare people off
Me: It says my package worth 500
She: That's including one touch up and lash curling
Me: But I cant don't want that

She: Sorry you cant. You can take the 900 one, it will look nice and last for a few years at least
Me: No, I do not care about lasting for a few year. I just want a natural one and happy to last it for 1-2 years. I am not sure if I will be comfortable or like it.
She: You will definitely like it! How about the 600 one?
Me: No, I can do 300-400 at outlet such as browhaus, perfect beauty, brow n beauty, why here? I have researched on them and all looks good.
She: We have sold package worth a few thousand, we are as good (hello, price is not the point, you don't get it ya?)
Me: Can I refund this coupon?
She: No
Me: Then I will just go ahead with the basic one, can you draw one for me to preview?

(that day i was on make up beforehand, so there's some residue of the eye liner on my lash)
She: It will be just like what your eyes look like now
*I was shock, the basic one is not even a proper line?!*

She: You can take the 380 one, it will be as nice as what you see on your friends.
Me: really? Can it last 1-2 years?
She: One year is definitely not a problem

I thought the price is similar to the market price so I jus went ahead. The session last abut 1/2 hour, however, the effect is still quite thin and not similar to those image that I had researched. I just disappointed and can't be bother with her anymore. If you want to know the name, you can PM me.

So that's a really bad experience I had, and I am glad that I have been rejecting her and insist not to get the more exp package, since they cant even do a proper job for the normal one! Please becareful when you purchase something from groupon too, as their after sale services is really bad. I have lodge a complaint before and it was never resolved.  Of course I will still lodge a complaint this time round, at least I have done my part.

Ok that's all I want to rant for now. - Cheers!
