What a hectic week!


I AM SO SO SO SO GLAD THAT THIS WEEK IS FINALLY OVER!!! M had to go on block leave, and her block leave coincided with the busiest period of the month for us. ;( During this week, there were a few times when I really felt that my temper would get the better of me. I had felt like lashing out at my colleagues for always trying to "disrupt" me from finishing what I had to urgently do (which never seems to end sigh...), but I had to just hold in my irritability and angst because I am still technically on probation, even if boss has already told HR that she would be confirming me.

Despite being so irritable and feeling so angsty, good things came out from this week. Someone who holds a high position in Marketing actually wrote me a commendation email to boss. I felt really happy because I totally didn't expect such a glowing report from her, and it did make me slightly embarrassed because I was sure that what I had done was just what I thought I was supposed to do. ._. Another person with quite a high position from HR also wrote me an email to thank me for what I had done all these while despite my busyness and told me to "jiayou" at the end of his email.

During M's (mandatory) absence from the company, I truly realised that for almost the past 3 months, I have been relying on M a lot. M's absence was felt by me lol, especially during the first day of the work week when she wasn't there. People starting bombing me with phone calls and emails. M's empty table suddenly became a battlefield because there simply wasn't enough space on my table to hold all my to-do items anymore. People who came to find me or boss would just drop their jaws at the state of M's and my work stations. Despite this, I see some good in M's absence, because for once, I realised that despite the minor hiccups in the beginning ('cos I'm still quite a blur sotong), I did manage to survive the week without any help from M at all and for this, I felt really proud of myself. ;')

This is something I wish I wouldn't have to repeat, but it really has been an enlightening period for me. Thank God for all these!

October updates


How time really flies. It's now one week into October. And autumn is definitely in full swing in Korea. The Triplets' father had mentioned to the Triplets that the sky in autumn looked very high and far away. I agree. But the sky I saw in autumn was also the most beautiful.

For the second year in a row, I will be spending the new year away from Singapore. I had booked my tickets on the last day of September, which I thought was a really great deal LOL. But apparently the other Miss Au and J (my new colleague HAHA) thought that my ticket was still expensive. o.O''' Anyway, I will need to ask them on places to go since it will be my first time there. I'm already counting down to my escapade to a country with winter, although I think for now, nothing can beat Korea's bitter winters.

Wicked Garlic opened another outlet right in the CBD, at Clifford Centre. Apparently Boss is a huge fan of them so she suggested to go there for lunch. I of course agreed as I really loved their pasta when I first ate there at Tanjong Pagar. Boss liked their Facebook page, so she knew that they were giving out free chocolate molten lava cake for every set meal purchased. When we reached there, I excitedly asked about the cake and the owner (I presume) told me that just for us, he would give us the molten cakes for free even if we just ordered the normal ala carte meals. I guess aegyo does help in getting myself some extra food. ^^

I ordered something different from the previous time; I had the roasted chicken aglio olio this time round and it tasted really good! M's prawn aglio olio is also something which I will definitely try the next time I am there. After getting 3 free chocolate molten lava cakes, the same guy came to our table and said that he would be giving us a box of tiramisu for free too. WOW HAHAHA. I just couldn't believe our luck LOL.

My roasted chicken aglio olio, which was damn good! *two thumbs up*

OK, I'm not a prolific blogger (neither do I aspire to be one; I just want a platform to pen my thoughts down), but still, a BIG SHOUT-OUT to Wicked Garlic for being so nice to us on Tuesday! We really did enjoy our lunch very much, and you can definitely count on our support (especially Boss' HAHAHA!!!). ;D

P.S. * is going to where I am going too?! I was quite shocked 'cos it's too much of a coincidence, but don't think we will get to meet each other though, because * looks like ** will be going earlier. 맨디야, 넌 왜 이래??? 넌 지금 포기해야 지... I'm really a myriad of confusion. I can't even figure myself out, so how can I expect other people to do so? Haiz... ;/
