Lateral thinking

Lateral thinking

After helping Willy with his event at the Grassroot Club along with Huishan on the 24th Jan, we had a supper at Willy’s favourite carrot cake stall somewhere on Ang Mo Kio. It somehow lead to a lateral thinking session. If I am not wrong, it all started with Huishan going, "Open, close. Open, open, close. Open or close?" (I still cannot figure it out still.) Then Willy went on with more lateral thinking questions. It was fun to see…

Work Politics

Work Politics

When I was assigned to my current responsibilities, I thought everything was simple and would be smooth sailing. It was otherwise. I recently had to work with one guy on polishing up and correcting on our work flow. The outcome was 2 weeks worth of hard work on my part, while, to give some credit, a day or 2 worth on his part. While I could bear all this, since I don’t mind filling up all my spare time with…

The items displayed, from what I know, are just a small part of…

A blast from the past: Class 4/2

A blast from the past: Class 4/2

I was viewing the photos in MHSS Facebook Group when this photo popped out. It was from the time when I was in my final year in MHSS. This was my entire class, sans Adnan, who was the photographer, and Yue Wei, who simply was not around. I could not remember when we took this, but it was a pleasant surprise to see this again. When I saw each face, 3-4 years younger us, I saw poignant stories, some serious,…

Working too hard

Working too hard

I confess. I think I am getting too dedicated with my camp duties. When I could rest in bunk, I went ahead with the remaining, and growing pile of work I am doing. I just a workaholic. Employers will love this kind of worker boy… Getting stressed out soon with the lack of sleep. My call, my decision, but I want everything to be perfect, if not, excellent in the upcoming event. Gosh. OK, I am too scatter brain to…
