~~ Count My Blessings ~~
I think I get lucky in my life, most of the times.. Except those relationship bs, I am blessed with lotsa love and help...
I've been given the opportunities to develop myself in different platforms, with steep learning curves... Being pushed and pushing myself... I don't think I've discovered my potential at this current role yet, so many things to learn.. Need to adapt, and be receptive to their ways of working and thinking... I realized how I would just shut myself down when I don't agree, refuse to listen.. Gosh, I am so not open minded... This is the worst attitude ever, when I refuse to understand/listen... It will only hinder me from progressing further... Someday somehow I'm just gonna pay a huge price for this kind of behavior *gulp*
Counting down 2 years and 46 weeks in this little red dot... Can you believe this? I don't know why I'm doing this... I don't know what's gonna happen... But I just wish to see more of this world before settling down... I realized I've been single for quite some times... And people have always asked me if I've imported any boy from hkg to sgp... Sadly, nope! Haha... It's been exciting to meet different people and just to hang out... My mentality has changed quite a bit, not looking for serious commitment, just friends that are looking for excitements in life too... Party till dawn, travel to the end of the world... Whatever comes along, I'm game for it!
Yes, I've been lucky.. But every thing comes at a price... Nobody would know how much effort u've put in, just to get this far... Life is not a bed of roses, definitely not my life... Aim High... Think Big... U're the Star!!

I've been back for one month.... I feel like it's been a long time...
Every day goes by so quickly, before I realize it's already 10pm... Dashing off to get some rest before the sun rises again...
Admittedly, there's lotsa frustration that I am going through... From macro environment to daily routine... I know I am procrastinating... I know I should get myself together and move forward... I know I can do the job well, with more effort and attention... I have to say my manager has been supportive, the team is also friendly... Surprisingly, I am not used to a environment whereby mandarin is widely spoken... Most of the times, I have to resort to English to express myself in a clearer and more concise and professional manner... Lotsa challenges ahead of me, come what may!
My friends have been supportive... Dee took me in at the beginning, sorry for imposing on you, thank you for your help... Kenny grandpa has been spending times with me, always calm me down with his sincere advices... A couple of friends took time to hang out with me during their business trips to Singapore, introducing me to their friends... Started to build my social circle... Been going out, however the feeling is just not the same... Oppa has been the one who is able to understand my feeling perfectly, always shares his experience and perspective with me...
Been feeling emotional these days... Hmm, I guess this is part of the deal... There are people that I think of every single day... But for how long, I would think of them? Will they fade out eventually? I am scared of that day will come... Out of sight, out of mind?
It's another 2 year and 11 months in this land... What will happen within this period? Embrace my life... Loving every single second of it...
