Just like to do a review of current New Shift Pattern.
It's been three months since the changed to the new shift.
Comparing the old shift and new shift does make a difference.

During the old shift time seem to be rather longer.
As it is a five days work week and the days past slower on Friday.
Due to a full working day required (13 hours).
Now with the current shift.
It's a five days work week but with an hour longer working hours daily.
But the work hours is average out without a long stretch on any day.
It's a plus......

Old shift has every Sunday as a family day for most.
Current shift a Sunday would only happen every six weeks.
For those social being it's a minus......

Old shift tends to have more earning power for most.
Current shift has gun down the earning power for most.
A plus for the company but a minus for employee who need cash.

Old shift - communication between shift is much easier.
Without having to write lots of grandmother grandfather stories.
Current shift - communication has to be documented in details,
So as not to be misunderstood by other crews taking over.
A minus for time wasted.

Old shift - less chances for people to fall sick.
As the 2nd shift does have a human lifestyle.
Current shift - more people fall sick often.
Due to the 2nd shift which extend pass 1am - very inhuman.
By the time settling down it would be 3 or 4am.
For those light sleeper - wake up early at 7 or 8am.
Or those with kids going to morning school - stay up till 5 or 6am.
In order to send them to school before retiring to a slumber.
For my case - within these 3 months I have fallen sick more often than usual.
Due to the low resisitant on 2nd shift.
A minus for health.

Old shift - people are more committed to their work.
Current shift - people tend to skive or not in the morale to work.
A minus for working morale.
(Due to poor management and worker relationship)

Old shift - company earns and project good profit.
One and a half way communication.
Current shift - company earns more but wanted to have even more.
Only one way communication now
A minus for bi-party relationship (reason as above).

It has shown to have more disadvantages than advantages.
Just wonder what will be the result of review by the management soon.
I will predict that they will say all is good.
Well - just have to wait and see.
Anyway it's not proving too be too healthy for me.
For I have fallen sick too often lately.
Even with the most cautious measure that I had taken.
I'm still prone to fall sick.
So it's time for me to review on more measures.
To prevent myself from falling sick and maintaining a good health.
Just had a check today - BP had gone up a little.
Have to watch out on that.
More ulcers in the mouth due to heatiness = bad breath.
Flu is with me most of the time and feeling lethargic at times.

I Knew It !!!!!

I knew it.... I just knew it!!!!!
That petty scumbag is nasty enough to resort to such a dirty trick.
I predicted this to happen...
But was even more disappointed and loose my respect for the cohort.
Anyway this time I'm not going to be humiliated and loose my dignity again.
I'll fight back for my right!!!!!

Peeps..... I suppose all of you don't know what I'm mumbling about, right?
Still remember I said before I'm awaiting for the result of an internal interview?
Read (Things Ain't Right)
The saga started with my Lesson In Life.

During the tussle with that petty scumbag (Ex-Boss).
I had actually ask the Big Boss for transfer.
The undecisive Big Boss was trying to delay the issue by not giving me an answer.
Hence, I just suffer in silence to patiently await for his answer.

While waiting for the unknown answer????
Another department (B) had actually approached me and wanted me to go over.
Since the scumbag don't know how to treasure me so I thought why not.
And that department (B) was where I wanted to be.
The dept head whom approach me said she had to first seek her boss approval.

Who knows a few day later, that scumbag pick a fight.
And he march me into the Big Boss office to force me to leave the section.
The Big Boss in co-hort with that scumbag make me leave the section.
Putting me into another section where someone had just left.
A quick and easy way for the Big Boss to solve his problem.
I accepted the humiliation and went over with my head high.
Met New Boss.

Then, the good news came.
Department (B) told me that they are most willing to arrange for an interview.
Didn't want to let the New Boss down and make him feel betrayed.
I told the New Boss about the whole Department (B) issue.
He was very understanding and willing to let me go if I am accepted.
He will not plan anything for me until I get the result.
Submitted my resume and was arranged for the interview.
Everything went on well and the Department (B) Manager was very happy with me.
He even commented on my knowledge and excellent experience.
With that I have a very high confident of getting the deal.
Was told that I do not have to worry of anything and will be told of the result soon.

Patiently waited..... One month past...... No news......
My heart start to sink a little and got a little worried.
Thought it would be courteous of me to just drop an email to ask about it.
I got no reply......
New Boss asked me about the result..... It's "?" to me?
My heart sank even further...........
Then I met dept (B) head and ask about how I had fare in the interview.
Was told should be hearing from the Management soon.
That re-ignite my fire again..........

Again.... I patiently waited..... Another month had past.... Still no news.
Now my heart really sank.
Anyway I owe New Boss an answer about the result.
He was away for reservist so I took the chance to probe around for answer.
Still couldn't find any answer.
1) The HR personnel whom interviewed me was away for a month.
2) Email to the HR Manager - No reply.
3) Ask Dept (B) head - told to refer to HR.
New Boss came back from reservist and I still couldn't give him an answer.
Felt really bad.
Just have to be frank with New Boss.
When he heard my encounter -
He was kind enough to say that he will find out for me.

Next day he went to the HR Manager.
To his surprise the answer was all the while there.
It's just that they don't know how to reveal to me.

HR Manager told New Boss that
I had actually been accepted for the deal.
Just that Big Boss will not release me.
When ask about the reason by New Boss.
Do you know what is the creative reason given?????
The f%#$@^* petty scumbag was behind all this delay.
He complain to Big Boss he lost manpower?
Why New Boss needed manpower and still wanted to release me.
Is it all a conspiracy between me and
New Boss?
I will set a bad example for all his other subordinates to follow suite.
I was like scratching my head????
What the hell is this - still trying to frame me???
Why don't he go pee in his own face and see it for himself???
Why his subordinates all wanted to leave his section???
Please lah.... Wake up his own idea.
If he's the people person like
New Boss.
Do you think all his subordinates will want to leave???

What genius idea that scumbag can come up with.

I felt really sorry for
New Boss.
Getting him into this mess.
And the stupid Big Boss think that New Boss is trying to stir the issue now.
I have no more respect for the Big Boss.
I don't think he deserve the respect anymore.

Now that this issue had been kicked up.
Last saw an email past midnight that a discussion would be held.
To discuss this saga next Wed between HR Manager, Big Boss and myself.
If they are going to kick up a fuss.
This time round I am not going to suffer in silent once more.
I will fight for my dignity and right.
Here we go...Ale...Ale...Ale...

Happy Birthday!!! Singapore!!!

It is the 42nd Birthday for Singapore.
This year has been exceptional as :-
1) The celebration is brought to Marina Bay and on a water platform.
2) A set of brand new experience for the audience attending.
3) A water curtain in between the display and with laser beam through it.
4) Firework at various locations.

Indeed it is a very spectacular expereince for all at the Bay.
I did enjoy myself to the show.
Although I didn't get to see it at the ceremony stand.
Watching the display from the opposite end is also an experience.
It's been also 20+ years I've never been to watch NDP live.
Today is an exceptional for me.
Being interested in the above reasons for this year NDP.
I also would like to capture some enchanting and beautiful moments of NDP.
Mainly because it's held at the waterfront and it's my favorite views.

So I have captured some beautiful and lovely shots of NDP & waterfront.
Do enjoy some of my pictures below and also the slide show at the side column.

5 Years....

5 Years is such a significant period for me.
Many things have happened over these 5 Years.

1) Mum's Anniversary
Within a few more days of the Lunar Calender.
Mum would have passed on for 5 years.
Had gone to the temple where she rest yesterday...
To pay my due respect to her.
As I had not visited her for a long long time.
Took the chance of my rest day to go over.
Things have change in the temple.
Renovation has been going on to upgrade the facet.
Good for the temple so that it will be rejuvenated.
So that Mum will have a better environment there.

2) A Step Closer to Financial Freedom
Received the credit of my investment profit back in my CPF.
Took the time to visit the HDB office to clear my remaining loans.
Didn't have this plan out during the time when I bought my current flat.
Was actually planning for a 10 years period to clear my loans.
However, it seems that things just being in the advantage for me.
Done some investment about over 5 years ago.
The investment seems to have progress pretty well.
It had make a tidy 160% profit for me.
This is what I had not expected to happen.
Hence, with the current economic instability condition (overheated).
Took partial profit out to repay my loan (in case anything happen to the economy).
Keeping the remaining still vested for more or better gains.
So I am one step closer to financial freedom.
Will work on more financial initiatives to improve my financial position.

3) Perspective of Life has changed
My perspective of life has changed.
Have learnt to take life much more easily.
Learn to appreciate the moment in life;
Learn to appreciate the people around me more;
Learn to appreciate the things I am bless with;
Learn to appreciate the time I am given;
Learn to appreciate the opportunity of giving and letting go.......
I'm no more the young lad that took life so hard.
Missing a lot of moments, time, people, things etc in life.
When I was younger I had tend to push myself too hard,
Not knowing that infact I lost more than I gain.
As an energectic and active young lad - Achievement is all I care.
After all these years when I reflected back - What is Achievement after all?
It is all but a passing cloud - it comes and goes.
Of course in between the experiences gain is valuable.
It is something that the book will never be able to teach me.
I am not into any regrets for what I've been through.
But the balance in life that I had not been able to achieved earlier.
Probably it's the family background that I have.
Was too eager to achieve more to
let my parents have a better life.
Seeing them toil all their life to support us is a pain.
Anyway these 5 years after mum passing on has changed me completely.

What's installed for me over the next 5 years in life?????????..................

Super Busy

OMG....Had been super busy over the last few days.
So many things to do and happen all almost at the same time.

New Boss was on reservist so helping the seniors to coordinate works.
As he will be away over three weeks period.
Had to help out due to manpower shortages over the three weeks.
Woking a little extra to help clear the load and meet the target.

Friend's father passed on so went over to condole.

Had to meet agents to discuss on my new investment.
Was talking to them on my new requirement and needs.
So that they can work out the investment plan for me.
Got all of that done within two evening.
A few new investments are in force now.
So now I have to monitor them to see the progress initially.
Just to make sure that the $$$ invested is really working for me.
Short term may not see the effect but looking at mid term and long term.
Next is to await the earlier return-on-investment to be credited.
So that I can get the housing loan settled.
Then I am down with 1 debt free planning.
More to come.
Can't afford to live on debt - pretty dangerous these days.
But the commercial world just try to get all of us into debt.
Leveraging may be a way for some or many.
But this tool has to be used careful.
If not careful then can get ones into big trouble also.

Next thing to work out is my old age fund............
Am I that OLD yet?????? WinkTongueSurpriseShockedSmile
Nah... Just trying to plan a little further to make sure I have enough to retire.
Also to make sure that I can retire without having to worry about 3 meals.
And still benefit to enjoy a carefree life.
Am I thinking too far away??????

Then there were some home related and personal issues pops up.
Tried to have them settled within the shortest possible time.
Manage to get them all almost settled.
There are still few issues bugging me.
Hopefully can get them settled next week.

Phew!!! I am all drain out.
I must take a rest to energise.
Or else there are two more weeks ahead to be busy with work.
Had been missing out on all my SMS's, emails, missing calls etc.
Will try to review them all and start getting back to them.

Still awaiting for my interview result.
Don't know what happen to it?
Was told being reviewed and it's already more than a month now.
Has it been trash or is it still in KIV?
I don't know??????
Really don't know who's suppose to make the decision now.
(Another failure in the system in this co.)
Probably I'll be more proactive by going to the HR and ask about it.
If it had been trash then I can concentrate on what I'm suppose to be doing.
If it is still in KIV then how long more have I to wait?
I need an answer to this.
As I still owe New Boss an answer on this.
(Did inform him about this application and he's been supportive)
That's why he can't plan for my job right now.

Well....Busy week ahead.

Time To Harvest

I think it is about time to harvest my strawberry.
Will harvest those that have ripen soon.
Will do it tomorrow.

My neigbours are complimenting my strawberry too....Big SmileSmileBig SmileSmile
So proud of them.

Also it is time to harvest some of my investment.
Have just got my agent (sis) to work out my investment.
In order to reap some profit first before the market get too hot.
Will clear out my housing first with the profit.
Then, will sow more investment at the right price and right moment.
In a way to get her going.
At the same time help myself with a bigger retirement fund...Wink

Good to see her pulling up her sock after "adviced" by me.
Now she had shown a good attitude and improvement in finding her own path.
Working hard full time and wanted to keep a few more jobs to save more.

Dazzy-----Dreaming-----About my retirement fund now.....
Not forgetting my round-the-world tour........AngelWinkAngelTongue
Oh..Oh..also not forgetting - Three-Blind-Mice - Ten Year Tour....Tongue
