Last Working Day!

I’m free! Work-less for 1.5 months! I’m jollified to know that all went well today, files cleared, smooth handover and managed to have a final quick chat and a handshake (of thank yous) with my bosses just few mins before heading off. THAT made me smile all the way home… Silly as it sounds, but my heart just felt much lighter afterwards.

The feeling of being freeee from work commitments, freee from meetings, free from phonecalls, free from inspections, free from facing nasty clients (especially).
Other emotions crept in too, a sprinkle of sadness and appreciation left me feeling teary.
My 2.5 years (in this company) was indeed a good exposure and experience!

So what’s next?

More packing lar…

4 Days and Counting…

with excitement, a tablespoon of concerns plus a teaspoon of achiness.

The thought of having to go back and forth packing, unpacking is beginning to tire me out. I’m still thinking how to pack smart… Have to start listing down my pack-wants and pack-nots by tonight!

Achiness from the mini fever germs developed last night, of all time… Again. Must be the recent daily downpours, and frequent quarterly soaked feet and arms. I’m now stuffing as much fruits into my system, hoping it’ll subside. Sigh!

Another mini blessing to thank for:
My boss will be giving me a farewell lunch on Thurs! I didn’t expect her to be so very generous, will surely be missing nice bosses (compared to my previous ones) like them. *wide smile*

7 Days Till My Last Working Day!

Days are moving forward so quickly! The nearer the days, the more nervous and excited i am!

Other than taking my time throwing and packing, packing and wrapping, my office paperwork is still piling! Can’t afford to grumble anymore, must speed up my work movements.

……………………………………………..

A chipy update: I’ll be paid (1 month) year-end BONUS together with my Nov’s salary! Wow! I didn’t expect it, but was seriously praying for this mini miracle, which i don’t quite deserve. My last prayer request for this month is answered!
What a joyous friday! Can’t wait to shop for what i need, repeat, NEED.

6th Working Year!

I realised yesterday night that this month marks my 6th working year in the design industry! It seemed like a year ago… Seriously. I never thought i was capable enough to pull through this industry’s immense details and criticsm/ fussiness of it, and to know i’ve endured for 6 years just startles me. Those in the design industry should understand where i’m at.

I’m always reminded of my miserable salaries during my first few years, well… I can’t afford to be choosy then. it wasn’t just tough, but it taught me so much humility and obedience to still learn and gain as much experience so to go far. I remembered feeling weak, mentally and emotionally. It’s not just about the low salaries, but extreme hard work, frequent OTs, and persistent criticism over your ideas or presentations comes with it too!

To some it’s ONLY 6 years, much more years to explore and learn. I agree on the learning part, it’s never-ending detailings and design exposure to learn. But with many more years to explore? Hmm, not very confident if i can hold on longer than 10-12 years in this field.

So what’s next after year 8-10?  Well, i’ve got a career plan, an exciting ambition to look forward to… A job position that’s above design but within the design sphere.
But, i guess it all boils down to IF i’m able to gain that particular experience in time.

Despite all and career trials to come, i’m still very thankful and blessed!

Chicken and Green Beans Stir-Fry

This dish is best cooked with pork, but couldn’t source for pork especially in the city, so therefore replaced with chicken, again.

                chicken-and-green-beans-stir-fry

What’s in it:
Minced ginger, red capsicum (thinly sliced), cut chicken pieces, green beans, sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar.

Husband loved it, but i still think it needs further improvement.

Update: Upcoming Mini Vacation

Change of plans, we’ve decided to cancel langkawi and opt for Colmar Tropicale (Bukit Tinggi) instead, just 40 mins drive from KL. Main reason was lesser flight cost involved, as we’ll be flying twice in next 2 months.
I’m still chirpy about it because we still get free rooms/ stay for 3 days 2 nights, breakfast and dinner included.

You can check out the package here for more info.   
This will be my 2nd time visiting… And a free holiday is better than no holiday! *wide smile*

 

Improvised Lunch

I improvised a lunch from remaining groceries in the fridge from our last dinner.
This time extra ingredients was added: carrots and olives.
