Just another rant


Am I really that inefficient?

Or do they not get it that it takes time to do all those tasks?

Maybe they think those tasks should take lesser time?

You know, please do assign the tasks to whoever you think can do it faster and better, that person is probably better suited to handle the tasks.

You gotta use the strength of your employees, assign the right person for the right job, win-win for both employee and employer.

Not just grab whatever and pass them on to whoever you think is free.

Janitorial service* also has limit.
* that's a major part of my job, cleaning up other people's shit

Keep on loading your employee without a care about the bandwidth is just driving your employee to burn out and quitting.

Let's face it, many employees quit because of the management, not because of the job.

Worrier


School examination starts tomorrow for both the kids, but all they care about is their game time and television time.

To them, revision is just something they need to do before they can play or watch the television.

Their attitude towards their studies is just so different to mine when I was their age.

I would be worried about the exam, grabbing any spare time I had trying to go through the subject one more time.

Then again, I am a worrier. My quality of sleep suffers whenever there is something really important happening the next day.

As I have said many times, I am just not very good at handling stress.

I would like to have the spirit of a warrior, but I guess I am just a worrier.

Oh well.

味道


今天出门上班前惯例的和情人抱抱吻掰掰,她说我身上那药膏的味道已经是我的味道了。

说孩子一闻到那药膏味就知道爸爸来了!爸爸来了!

我问她竟然不是嗅到我用的止汗剂吗?

她说只是嗅到药膏味咯。

哈哈,唉~


今年我好像加速老化那样,身体越来越差,每每打完羽球就腰酸背痛。

拜一打球拜二敷药,拜三可能还要敷药然后又打球所以拜四和拜五又敷药。

周末若还是没痊愈就继续敷药…

*汗*


开着车时我就突然想到辛晓琪有一首叫《味道》的歌,歌词里有句是想念‘身上的味道’。

难道我老婆仔和两个瓜想念我的时候是会想起那药膏味?

真是的…

>_<

心的频道:友情需要经营


大学研究期末我变得反社会、反社交,所以那时之后的新朋友不多。

加上我又喜欢宅在家里,几乎都没有主动联络朋友,所以连以往的朋友群也缩小了。

我也不觉得怎么样,看来我还真的是个孤僻的人。


我常说,有些同事只是同事,有些同事也是朋友。

我有一群这样的同事朋友,开始时是公事上有接触的同事,因合得来而成了朋友。

然后渐渐有些是公事上没有接触的同事,但又因为不同的因素相识,合得来,然后成为朋友。

应该是我搞的那些工作以外的康乐活动的缘故,朋友把他们的朋友拉进来,接了缘。

有缘没有分的已经淡去,留下来的是会珍惜那缘分的。

至少我是这样想。

坦白说,常常有工作以外互动的,来来去去也就那几位。

我尽量参与那些互动,毕竟多数是我带起的康乐活动,我就是这样一个整天向往跟工作无关的欢乐活动的人啦,呵呵!

我又不是工作狂啦,总要有让我喜欢去上班的原动力嘛…

加上,我是相信朋友间要常联络互动,才能保持友情的。

当然有些朋友是不需要常联络,而友情又不会变质的。

但有更多的是不常联络就会变陌生,被淡忘的。


每个人有自己的生活观、价值观,所以我们重视的,认为重要的,别人不一定会有同感。

友情也一样,一对朋友在对方心里的位子不一定是平等的。

我想,多数都是不平等的。

但友情需要经营,应该是大家都可以认同的吧?

看得重的,就付出得多点;不那么在乎的,就只是被动的回应。

重要的是,不要把朋友对你的好当作理所当然。

Random thoughts


I have been feeling my age lately, and generally my health has been poor, both physically and psychologically.

Several illnesses and aches, nothing really major but reminded me of the fact that my body is no longer what it used to be.

Depression comes and goes as usual, and there is additional stress from work that I deem is totally unnecessary and wouldn't have happened if not for that reorganisation. So disappointed with the management now.

Putting into action a change plan, don't know if it will bear fruit. I will just go with the flow and do my best.

If it did happened, I am going to miss many things that I have established and gotten used to throughout the years.

*Sigh...*

Random behaviour for July 2017


Put in a conscious effort to keep my entries short and crisp last month, and I am pleased with the majority of my entries, though a few are probably a tad on the long side for my standard of suitable Facebook post length. Anyway, consider myself successful in my June's impromptu resolution. feel good +1

Giving myself a break for July, so no impromptu resolution for this month.

Because I can.

生活点滴:不要吃太多


原来 team building 的华文是「团队建设」,我好像找过这翻译,但又忘了。

今天是我工作部门的 team building。

但四项活动里两样是吃(早、午餐),一样是坐着看戏和吃爆米花,只有一样才真的是有团队建设的活动。

所以我叫它 tummy building。

出门时老婆仔跟我说:

不要吃太多哦。

去 tummy building 你竟然叫我不要吃太多,怎么 build tummy 哦?” 我说。

等下连裤带都需要脱掉。

我在笑声中离开。

傍晚带着吃不完的午餐回到家,告诉老婆仔:

今晚都是不用煮我的晚餐了。

老婆仔笑说:

tummy building 成功!
