Your Work Is Not Your Life

Some friends see me as 'unemployed'. Others see me as taking a break from corporate world, and they kept on asking when I am going back for interviews and trying to recommend available jobs to me. A few think I am resting at home, possibly slacking and shaking my legs.



Technology is not to blame, you are

Recently, PCF introduced technology into our sign-in system. Instead of the manual signature by the parents, parents use the iPad to take picture to sign in. Seems like a no-brainer as this digital storage of information will be better for the administrative duties too.



Cost of a traditional Chinese wedding in Singapore

I am not joking when I tell you a wedding is a hefty affair. Looking at the financial point of view, I would have opted for a simple buffet lunch but no, wedding is also a family affair. It really depends on both you and your partner's parents, more so for the bride's parents. They would want a lavish event to marry off their daughter proudly and to loudly announce to their friends and associates.

This is also their day so I have to do it their way.



Review of Di Gio bridal studio

The rates when I got married 5 years back have not changed much when I compared to the rates of a friend who just got married this year. It was and still is too expensive in my opinion. If you got married right after you graduate, I am pretty sure you can't afford the whole Chinese wedding package and banquet without any financial support.



Entrepreneurship - A wasted degree?

Earning $100k or getting a honours degree is not stopping me from starting me own business. However, many would feel that I have wasted my education. They ask, why do I need to study so much if I am going into entrepreneurship? Have I wasted my technical knowledge and wasted my last 8 years of working experience?



Can you be the woman while I be the man?

In our next life, can you be the woman while I be the man?

That's what I like to say to my husband. Why? No menstruate cramps, morning sickness, delivery pains, confinement headaches and breastfeeding woes. All the physical torture of women that is not the least bit shared with men.

Freaky Friday anyone?

Protective or over protective?

I understand how some parents can be protective over their kids, especially the babies or toddlers. Especially new parents, because I have been through the exact same phase. There are also some people who are not adept at handling babies but still insist on hugging them. Or worse, some have poor hygiene habits and kept touching the kids' cheeks and chins.



Sharing session with SimplyJesMe - Postponed

The sharing session has been postponed as the organisers will be holding a bigger event at a later date and combined with other bloggers. The scheduling of this date was too rushed so they were unable to get more speakers.

Now, this is a better idea!



Customers are not always right

I know I have not seen all after being in sales line for 9 years. After so long, people still continue to surprise me. One thing does not change: Customers are not always right.

They can shout at their top of the lungs, they can scold you for their bad mood, they can shift the blame to you because of their own fault but they cannot escape blame on their part.



Club Med Bintan - All-inclusive, unplanned holiday

This was quite an interesting idea for me - All-inclusive resort where all the food, accommodation and facilities are added in the price. I heard it first from a few friends but I never thought I would want to try it. After all, shouldn't a holiday be full of sight seeing, shopping and walking?

Not if you just want to relax and not have to plan any itinerary or follow some boring tours.
