I hate my job!

Yes. You read that right. I totally hate my current new job. I'm not gonna name the company I'm working for as it's far too obvious and someone inside may find out that I bad mouthed the company from google search.

Yes. The company is well-known by many and I love buying from their website. Oops! I think you roughly know which company I'm talking about but their system totally sucks. They might have offered me a good basic and have good benefits but money is not everything.

Not to mention having to work long hours for an office job. 9am to 7pm leh. Whoever heard of a sales job with no commission? Even my customer don't believe I'm not getting paid commission for the accounts I bring in. And how can a company not provide training for new staff?

They expect me to know everything just because I have experience in sales? A good salesperson will fail badly in their job too if they do not know their products well! Smoking our way out does not work every single time!

I'm being taught 1 thing at a time after I closed an account or encounter customer asking questions that I do not know how to answer simply because I wasn't well-informed! Crap! I do not know how many times I made a fool out of myself because I do not know how to answer their questions.

Most customers are nice and do not probe further when I tell them I will get back to them once I have an answer but I got mocked by a not so nice customer once. He laughed at me right in my face calling me a newbie. Damn fucking embarrassing! This should not be happening! Am very unhappy about it!

I also hate being treated like a kid when all my co-colleagues are so much more younger than me. Just because I'm new in this industry doesn't mean I can be treated like this. I am experienced enough to know what can be done and what cannot be done! In terms of age, I'm also older. Have some respect!

Or maybe I should say I hate being micro managed. Asking long and short. Where you going la? Who you meet la? What company name la? What they deal with la? What time will you be back to the office la? This cannot la. That cannot la. You get the drift. I don't have to explain why I'm so pissed. This is what I have to say to them. KANINASAEYO! Neh! _|_

I initially took up this job even though no commission, but they offer high basic because I'm really tired of doing corporate sales. Fighting for numbers all day long and getting fucked all day long by that stupid GM.

Only after I join then I realize what a treat I'm in for. Even though no sales figure but we do have KPIs to hit too. And guess what? They keep changing your KPI throughout the month. Eh.. Can suka suka change KPI like that la. Stupid Korean fool! This is what I have to say to you. KANINASAEYO! Neh! _|_

I thought my job was to just open new accounts for customer and make sure they have sales coming in and occasionally get them to spend money to do advertising and promotions. I didn't know I have to set up their accounts for them and do listings for them blah blah blah.. All this are not in my job scopes man!

Have to do so much things I might as well carry on working in corporate sales right? At least I get paid commission for the effort I put in! Fucking crap! 1 of their job description is what leh. Having fun at work! Having fun my ass! So much nonsense to do and constantly being micro managed! They call this having fun? This people are sick in the mind. Once again, everyone say it together with me. KANINASAEYO! Neh! _|_

Pui pui pui pui pui pui pui pui! Okay. I'm done ranting. On a happier note, my Kate Spade wallet has arrived!

I'm loving it!
La la la la la

New Header!

Was so sick of my blog picture so I decided to make some changes. Can't change the blog skin though. It's the nicest among the rest.

So now I have a new header photo! Thanks to Hong Wei for helping me put the photos together!

I'm loving it!

Will be blogging soon about some work related stuff. Can't keep it in me anymore.

Oh oh! SMBF's wallet finally came!

La ta ta dah dah!

Nice a not?

I went crazy and ordered a Kate Spade wallet for myself too. Damn! I'm crazy over Kate Spade stuff recently. Need to stop this trigger happy roll I am on before I go broke and purchase more than I can earn.

Outing and Dinner at SMBF Auntie's House

Went out for a walk today with SMBF and Naomi at Orchard to look at Christmas decorations. Naomi got so excited with all the Christmas decorations.

We went to Pacific Plaza and saw a nice looking Christmas tree so we decided to go in and let Naomi take a photo.

While we were taking photos for her, an ang moh lady came over and ask if she can take a photo of Naomi too with the Christmas tree.

She said she is from France and she wanna take a photo back for her family to see. She also said Naomi is adorable therefore she wanna take a photo of her too so I said okay. =)

My adorable little angel

I also took photo with Naomi as she requested it but I look like a bloody pig in it! My goodness! Therefore, I refuse to put up the photo.

It's time for me to lose weight. I absolutely abhor how I look now. I've been gaining weight like crazy ever since I got together with SMBF.

I'm not blaming him but when 2 persons are together, they feel happy and tend to eat more. SMBF is a rather big eater so I somehow got influenced by him and started eating more too like how he got influenced by me and intake more sugar drinks than before.

We have agreed to start working out from tomorrow onwards and hopefully be able to lose some weight by end of the year.

Today is the 1st time I met SMBF's side of relative. Since the death of his parents, he is only left with his elder brother and they both go over to their auntie's house for dinner every Sunday as and when possible.

He has ever invited me over to his aunt's house for dinner before but I refused to go. I'm not so into meeting up with relatives unless on occasions. Even on occasions, I feel rather uncomfortable too because I can't really be myself and it's really boring.

I'm okay with cousins because we lots to talk about but not aunties and uncles. I just don't feel so good about it. I can be rather anti-social at times.

Partly, I'm worried about how his auntie and brother will view me and Naomi. How will they react after seeing us? I do not want SMBF to get caught in between if they do not like us.

But, as time goes by, I decided to give it a try. I know deep down in SMBF's heart he wants me to go along with him but stopped asking because he doesn't want me to feel obligated.

As our relationship got more stable, I start to think how long can I avoid it? I will eventually have to see them and thus agree to join him for dinner.

Things were not as bad as I thought it would. I met his brother, auntie and cousin for the 1st time. Although we didn't really talk much, it wasn't as awkward.

His brother was as per his description, weird. Doesn't talk much. Pretty much a loner.

His auntie on the other hand seems to like Naomi a lot. She said Naomi was pretty and even gave her a Kit Kat when we were leaving.

That pretty much sums up my otherwise usual boring Sunday. It's time to work again tomorrow. Somebody kill me please.

Nights everyone!

New camera and random new stuffs

Finally have time to blog. Am so tired everyday after work that the only thing I wanna do when I reach home is take a bath and sleep.

I'm so happy! Dear finally bought me a camera as advanced Christmas present! Yay! 3 cheers for SMBF!!!

Isn't it a beauty?

Lots of nice photos in the future! Not that my Note Edge can't take nice photos but it's just taking up too much space and causing my phone to be really laggy.

Recently went crazy and went on a shopping spree. Bought a Sony MP3 and a Kate Spade handbag shipped in from US but I super love the items I have now.

Chiang chiang! Occasionally pamper myself.

I'm not a selfish person though. SMBF's birthday is coming so I bought him a belt for his birthday. I also bought a Alpine Swiss Wallet for him as Christmas present but it has yet to arrive from US.

Goldlion buckle belt for SMBF!

It may not be anything expensive but it's the thought that counts right?

Okay. More blogging when I'm free.

I am feeling so tired everyday. Wanna blog about the new camera SMBF bought for me but can't seem to have enough energy for it.

Ending work at 7pm everyday then going home from the East to the West is super tedious. I'm always feeling sleepy right after bath.

I wonder if I made the right decision. But what's done cannot be undone. Just bear with it and hope I see some light soon.

1st day of work

Today was the start of my new job. Everything was pretty fine.

HR is a very nice and helpful guy. My group leader is also a nice guy. Made friends with 2 female colleagues in my team.

Don't really know the rest of the people though introduction was made. I have the memory span of a goldfish.

I seem to be the oldest in my team. How depressing. Sighz.. Life sucks.

Had lots of complicated stuff to learn. Selling copier was much easier. Hope I would be able pick up fast enough and get stabilized soon. Starting to feel the stress.

As I grow older, I become slower and memory fails me terribly.

No time to dwell in my own misery. It's time to sleep.

This has been an extremely boring entry. Sorry about that.

Batam Trip, JB and Steamboat!

Batam & JB

Went to Batam on Saturday and came back on Sunday but didn't have time to blog because on immediately on Monday, I went to JB with SMBF, Naomi and my parents to buy grocery for today's steamboat.

Batam was a pretty relaxing trip. Took ferry from Tanah Merah to Nongsa and checked in to Nongsa Point Marina Resort with SMBF, Naomi, my parents, Terence, Regina and Terence's friend Ah Tiong.

Me, SMBF, Terence, Mum, Ah Tiong at the back, Naomi looking down and Dad. Regina went toilet.

The view outside taken from my room. Pretty nice right?

Sorry. That's the only 2 photos I took. Don't really like taking photos with phone and my phone is lagging like hell with too many photos in it. Dear you got the hint? Lol..

Anyway, we went for a swim at Turi Beach Resort which is about 10 mins walk away as the swimming pool at our resort is under renovation till December. Naomi was so sad when I told her no swimming. She almost cried and the look on her face is heart breaking. Thank God there is another resort with swimming pool nearby.

After the swim, we went for dinner at a Seafood Restaurant recommended by Terence. We had loads of food like fish, prawns, egg, crab, kang kong and crayfish. There were 8 of us and each person only paid SGD$30. Not sure if that is considered cheap but overall the food was fresh an okay.

Subsequently, we played poker cards in the resort room and guess what everyone of us did after that? We went to sleep la. What you all thinking? Hahaha..

Woke up for breakfast and after some more poker games, it was back to Singapore loh. Was so lethargic that I went to sleep really early that night.

Woke up at 7am on Monday and traveled to JB. Halfway thru the trip, Naomi fell promptly asleep on my leg.

Pardon my fat thighs. Concentrate on her cute face instead.

We went to the wet market to buy a few stuff then we proceeded to KSL to further shop for groceries. Me and my mum went to have our nails done while the men and Naomi went to the supermarket.


Had steamboat at home today with the whole family. Koi the Kuku came along too because she was the one who suggested steamboat. Oh.. The auntie I dislike came along too. Shall have another entry on her some other day. Had mahjong after lunch then ate dinner again after mahjong. I won $30. Woohoo..

 Appetizing no?

Naomi had loads of fun and fighting again with Dylan (Nephew) and Ashley (Niece). Then she thinks it's funny to draw on her face and hands with her markers.

God kill me! I swear she will the death of me soon. I do not know if I should laugh or cry.

So anyway, that's the end of this entry and end of my break. Tomorrow, I'm starting on my new job. Nope. I still won't say which company I'm working for. I just hope this will be the last company I work for in the next 5 years and everything will be smooth sailing for me.

Wish me luck! Good night everyone!

Saying Thank You

You know how we as parents often teach our kids to say Please for the things they want and Thank You after they got it?

Kids usually pick up fast enough and make it a habit, but do we as parents practice that manners on our kids? I feel that we sometimes take for granted the things our kids do for us or maybe it's just me not having manners. =(

Naomi made me realize this yesterday. She was happily eating my pringles and I asked for a piece without even saying please.

I did not even say thank you too after I got it from her. She look at me finishing that piece of pringles then nudged me and said this: "Mummy say thank you to me!"

I was momentarily stunned for a moment before I got my senses back and said thank you to her while rolling my eyes.

It may seem funny in the beginning after telling my dad and SMBF then laughing it off thinking what a little adult she is.

After that, I gave it some serious thought.

What kind of a human would I want my daughter to be in the future?

Am I setting a good example/being a good role model for her?

I highly doubt so. She would probably think why she have to say please and thank you while the adults don't have to as she grows older.

I have decided to learn along the way together with Naomi as she grows up and practice what I preach.

If there are parents out there who are facing the same situations as I do, please do share it with me on how you manage to solve it.

Cheers! =)
