It's been quite a while since I wrote my last entry.
I'm now on compliance leave from work, staying home, eating a lot =) Life is good!
I've been on my job for 6 months, survived one round of headcount reduction in mid Nov... Well, there might be another round in the next quarter but we don't know. Getting slightly better at my job, market is so soft now that has created more chances for me to explore new things. Lovin' it! Admittedly, there's always frustration at work when i couldn't find the best solutions. Fortunately i've a team who is able to brain storm with me, and to provide good feedbacks. Thank you team!
I moved in with Diana, finally.. It's a place that I can come home to every day after work, though not much interaction with the rest, I have my own peace. Thank you Imran for helping me move!
Time really flies... I still miss the times spent in HKG. Connecting myself with my best friends in hkg through emails every day. One day a girl friend said to me:" phoebe you are so secretive, u never told me anything, and here i am always sharing with you my boys stories" Haha... I found it so interesting! I thought about what she said. It's true the ones who know most about me apart from the usual suspect from AIESEC, are my girls in HKG. Oh well =)
I was just reading some old books at home, came across The Game. This is an interesting book, overall. I only like the front part, when the writer started going on and on about Mystery going crazy I quit. It's a book about guys learning how to pick up girls, the techniques they can engage, the online platforms they use to share experiences provide advices, continuously to refine their skills and eventually transform into a pickup artist. Some of the techniques can be applied in our daily lives too, you learn how to ice-break by having some stories ready, how to hold the audience attention and such. Pretty cool! Well the side effect of after becoming a great pick up artist, they start to lose faith in the opposite sex coz literally they can get into any girls' pants, regardless they're married,single, heterosexual, bisexual etc... Recently, I met some nice friendly older guys. They are doing great at their jobs, earning big bucks, fun to be with, they are living to the fullest of being a playboy while involved in longer term relationship. Haha... Well, if guys can play around like this, girls can too. It's purely a matter of choice. I found it become more challenging to believe in others' intention when being approached... But then i was telling myself there's no harm to have a drink with this person, especially when u're not sure, who knows what's gonna happen at the end of the drink? Just sit back, relax and have fun. It's okie to be less uptight.
Year 2009 is around the corner and I am getting one year closer to my death bed, I hope to become more patient, learn more, accomplish more, see more of this world. All the people around me stay healthy and happy!
