Acceptance?


After the reorganisation many months ago, I have finally got a clear expectation from my new group manager.

There are still ambiguity in my job scope and responsibility but at least now I know what my manager's manager expectation is.

Basically on top of the majority of the work that I am doing now, I have to be the local content expert on things that I have no part in design or development, and the designer and developer are miles away in another time zone where all this time I have never been involved or tied in to any of their work.

I just have to somehow know everything they have done and be the expert in resolving issues that are related to all that areas. Three major and different areas that took different teams of people to design and develop.

So I guess I just have to go bug at least three different people and hope they can somehow pass their kung fu to me through some suitable communication channel that link two sides of the globe.

If only all that knowledge and skill can be directly downloaded into my brain...

My manager's manager also said I have to learn to say no to some of the job requests related to the work that I have been doing all my career thus far, when there is bandwidth constraint, in order to focus on the new role and responsibilty he gave me.

Funny because before he said that he said he heard many who said good things about what I was doing, and wants me to continue utilising my strength, and yet he wants me to say no to those requests if my bandwidth is taken up by the new expectation he has for me. My bandwidth will definitely be taken up, since I have to learn from scratch on things that don't really interest me!

I guess I already failed when I didn't say no to this forced role change.

天马行空:本小姐的日记


这篇文章纯属虚构,如有雷同,纯属你的幻觉。也许可能但不一定是,有一点点真实的虚构,但乖啦,不要想太多,看了笑笑就好…


二零一七年二月十日,热到趴零倒的有云晴天。

哈喽亲爱的日记,今天有几样事要八给你听。只是给你听哦,才不要跟那个整天烦本小姐分享人生故事的怪叔叔讲!

昨晚没有去偷鸭,只是乖乖的和小情人宅在家里,所以今天很有精神,YAY!


早餐时又有位同事叫本小姐美丽,本小姐第一百零一次的纠正他说:“本小姐的名是「本虾美丽」,你要么就叫全名,要么就叫本小姐!”

真是的,这些人,怎么总是学不会?

还有就是那些很无聊的粉肠,要讲多少次本小姐跟「根本英俊」先生是没有关系的!

只是偶尔暧昧而已。

还有那位,和那位,和那一位,全部都是暧昧而已。

本小姐不认为那是有关系咯。


整个早上开会又开会,幸好本小姐开眼睡觉和神游的功力很高,一直到免费午餐的时刻本小姐才回神。

要不是有免费午餐本小姐早就蛇到别处了啦,傻的咩?

免费的东西就不要嫌咯,但是齁…

那是什么午餐啦!都没有虾和螃蟹的!

真的很过分咯,骗了本小姐整个早上竟然是给这么萝型的食物!


午餐后就是欢乐时光了,呵呵!

和一群朋友玩桌上游戏,很巧妙的用本小姐那“都不知道自己在做什么”的策略把焦点转移到「美金美金亮晶晶」身上。

那些粉肠把「美金美金亮晶晶」的黄金抢得七七八八后本小姐就很容易赢了啦!

本小姐实在是太聪明了,有时自己都顶不顺自己。

「老翁」有回要发难时很帅气的说:“各位观众…”

结果骰子投出最小的一号… *噗嗤*

还有那「无发多亮」大师,每个人至少有四颗黄金他只有两颗,真的是菜到没朋友。

不用讲都知道最后当然是本小姐赢了啦!


过后大伙们去玩桌上足球,本小姐跟你讲哦亲爱的日记,那是今天最开心的时候了。

因为有小鲜肉!

不要傻啦,本小姐当然是和他一组啦!

其它的人也很识趣,这些猪朋狗友还不错哦。

小鲜肉要发功会用些时间,本小姐也不亦乐乎,就站在他身旁胡思乱想。

想些甜蜜的幻景和冰淇淋等等的东西。

游戏结果是什么本小姐不知道,总之就是很爽就是了!

欸,亲爱的日记,本小姐不是 dry 哦,本小姐只是很友善罢了,不要误会。

暧昧不算有关系!

Cracking


When I am too tired I get headache, then nausea.

The poor quality of sleep lately, combined with the early start and late end of the work day today resulted in just that.

A splitting headache with nausea crept in on my drive home. The setting sun that's always in the eyes did not help.

What a torturous drive. >_<

Hit the bed as soon as I got home, and didn't stir until two hours later, when the nausea subsided and the headache lessened to a more bearable level.

I am taking some sleeping aid these few nights, but looks like the 4-in-1 herbal formulation, established since 1947, is not helping.

I am cracking up...

Bollocks.

心的频道:突然好想歇


原本是要上载一篇过去发生的趣事的。
但下午不知为何突然觉得好累。
心好累。

就是那么突然…
想把自己关起来。
歇一歇。

关心和在乎很耗心力。
真诚的互动和交流应该是让心饱满的。
不是吗?

是因为我现在病着才这样?
太多天没有睡好了?
还是忧郁症又要来袭了?

是真的希望今年我会开始多交际些。
把心放开些。
让值得的、会珍惜的人进来。

但好累哦…
心很疲倦。
还有那淡淡的愁。

Favourite place


My biological clock has gone somewhat haywire these few weeks, waking me up early in the morning when I am still tired and don't want to wake up yet.

They say old people don't sleep much, perhaps this is the sign, *sigh*...

Anyway, today I actually managed to sleep through the usual time my biological clock wakes me, only to be woken up by the din the little monsters was generating downstairs. I am sure our neighbours within two stories above and below, as well as two units adjacent left and right were cursing us for the inconsiderate brats.

I am really sorry, they just never listen, never learn. =(

Managed to get back to a semi-unconscious state after going downstairs to tell the kids off, who turned their volume down to a civilised level for the most part, only the occasional shriek and the well-timed scream whenever I was just about to fall asleep again.

Little monsters, really.

I finally gave up late in the morning, resigned to yet another tired day. Got up and turned on my mobile phone, and got a WhatsApp massage from a colleague friend informing me he was at my favourite place.

Huh?

Turned out he was at a dim sum place, a restaurant that I have mentioned before. The thing is, I haven't even been there and somehow it's my 'favourite place' according to this colleague friend.

Anyway, for the record, my favourite place is my bed, especially when I am doing one of my favourite hobbies: sleeping.

Don't judge me, there is nothing wrong having sleeping as a hobby! =P

午餐记(四)


昨晚因为大宝森节而塞了两个多小时的车才到家后很想写篇有关的文章。
但太累了所以没有写。
只是有那很无聊的念头,要写短短的文章重复说塞车。
除了塞车还是塞车、塞车和塞车那种。 =P


情人老婆仔知道我不喜欢交际,所以今天她和两个瓜去拜年也没有招我。
不是我认识、关系很好的,我去也只是折磨自己。
所以她只是告诉我他们去哪里和我需要自己解决午餐。
谢谢你老婆仔不强求为难我,爱你哦! *吻*


麦当奴脑障搞宗教话题,所以我很有原则的杯葛它。
没有必要用我不清真的血汗钱“污染”它的店。
够尊重了吧?
世上就是有那么废的人,大马这什么都可以的国家好像特别多。


少了一个可以解决午餐的地方。
有点无奈,但这是原则!
没关系,槟城不缺吃东西的地方,呵呵!
所以午餐我去那熟悉的茶餐室


那新的经济饭档口的食物看起来不错。
蛮多顾客光顾的。
或许下次可以试一试。
但应该叫杂菜饭,因为看顾客给的钱额一点都不经济咯…


等我的福建面时习惯地看看周围的人。
哦,有除了华人以外的顾客哦。
有一家洋人在用餐,也有两桌的印度人。
不知道是不是大宝森节的缘故?


茶餐室的奶茶比以前好喝了哦。
我看看是谁负责泡茶水。
是换了人没错,但竟然是外劳嘞。
应该是外劳没有本地人那么吝啬,泡得比较浓吧?


我吃饱了离开前特地过去看了看杂菜饭的食物有什么选择。
不错哦,有我喜欢的。
嗯,下次就试试看。
在没有塞车的情况下回到家,嘿!

一杯姜奶茶的时间


周末开始时,我告诉自己,这周末要写篇有意思的文章。

有建设性的、能启发人的、看了会觉得有受益的那种。

但至今我还是没有头绪要写些什么…

嘿,还真有点懊恼。


午餐后泡了杯姜味奶茶,开了电脑,决定就是此时脑中想什么就写什么。

很随性、没有概念、无策划、不草稿的就写。

部落格文章而已嘛,又不是要投稿什么文学奖、什么创作奖的。

再说我就是纯粹自己写自己爽而已,当作生活记录。

可以让别人受益当然好,但我很清楚这部落格的观阅量,所以也没有什么不实际的假想。


最近常常叫些朋友分享他们的人生故事,想要更深层的认识他们。

感觉还真的有点阻力,应该不是每个人都喜欢分享的吧?

我觉得分享不难,就是把想到的写出来而已。

自己的思维、想法、经验、和生活点滴,好多可以分享的啊。

我常说,不是能不能的问题,是要不要的问题。

应该不是他们认为重要的事吧?

呃… 想一想其实也是啦,不是那么重要而已…


好啦,奶茶也要喝完了,就写到这为止。
