I Can't

Three forkful of noodles and six hours of sleep over 36 hours, four pages of confession, seven months of assumed happiness.

I can't eat, can't sleep, can't stop shaking. I need to learn to "can".

When Friends Are in Town

When my friends and their friends are in town, we have a good time with food and parties.

Let's Go Kolkata & Hyderabad

In the meantime, I managed to see other parts of India too. Woohoo! 
Kolkata's seafood is amazing! I had so much good food there and came back to Singapore with a very happy tummy. I don't understand why some folks have such negative opinions of the city - about its lacks of cleanliness and order. Seriously, which city of India can say it's super clean and orderly?
As usual, I have to pay 10 or 20 times more than a local to enter the Indian Museum and Victoria Memorial Hall.
Back in Hyderabad, I spent time in the office and time with the team, and I think our working relationships have become even better. 
At a farewell gathering for a colleague and myself, a colleague organised a lovely home dinner. I really feel like a family with the India's team and wish these friendships will continue forever.
India, till the next time!

Still Nothing to Wear

I have decided to stop shopping for a while. I'm.Serious.About.It.

I'll check in in three months.

Update on 4 March: This no-shopping thing was meant to be a big move, quite literally and not. Turns out, there's no moving to be done. I am in two minds about this no-shopping promise now. Let's check in again in three months.

It's All About Perspective

I LOVE sharing travel stories.

More than a few people have commented that I have bad luck when I travel - be it two flight cancellations in 2 daysdelayed (by 5 days) luggage), missed ferry connection by bus that was the result of a missed trainrunning like I was representing Singapore for the Olympics, getting off at the wrong train station, taking a really long bus ride, the list goes on...

Some of my friends commented, "You have the worst travel luck!"

But it's really about one's perspective. I always see the cake on dessert plate as not big enough. ;)

New Options at Work

I have been offered a new role with new responsibilities at work. This role will see me leading the Staffing Programs team for Greater China, a region which has always fascinated me and one I will not relinquish involvement in.

I have always thought it'll be just one path for me to take on a Staffing Lead role in a few month's time. Now, I have been offered another path for me to Staffing Programs Lead role.

Wow, I am most grateful for the trust and support I am getting from my manager, my manager's manager, and my manager's manager's manager!

Now, what should I choose?
