No, I have not successfully migrated to Tumblr as was the original intention, because for an assortment of reasons, I couldn’t find time to blog. Now that I have some time some 3, 4 days later, I’ve lost the urge for low-fat blogging. So I’m back here. Admittedly, I was a bit swayed by your comments.. for if I cannot provide relief for friends at work, how can I call myself a good friend! Haha.
I haven’t been blogging mostly because work is keeping me occupied at work, and A is keeping me occupied after work. The only reason why I’m blogging now is because I decided that I need to sleep in my own bed at least once a week to get my money’s worth. Also have to use the speakers once a week minimum, ditto for Nespresso machine. What’s the point of gadgeting up when I’m not at home most of the times, I sometimes wonder. Nonethless..
I’m bound for Beijing and Shanghai this Sunday for a business trip which is awesome because I’m finally getting the exposure I need (which comes along with a change n boss). Also it’s been a while since I’ve stayed at the Four Seasons, so now’s a good time to stock up on travel-sized L’Occitane toiletries. Yay. Did I mention that I’ve L’Occitaned my entire house (that refers to the two halves of my bathroom); it just smells sooo good, better than Molton Brown. Molton makes me feel and think like I smell like a granny. I’ve yet to ascertain that fact, remind me to ask the A tomorrow.
In other news, work is good. The business is growing at a time when traders are losing billions; at a time when banks are cutting heads; at a time when my ex-colleagues are ringing me up to ask if there at opportunities at my current firm. I have global counterparts for my sector, which means there’s actually breadth to the research and opportunities for global products. My team is nice, my boss actually eats and laugh, and I no longer feel bad about going out for lunch or leaving before 9pm.
Of course, there are long hours to be had and a tough journey ahead, but when I see reason and sense in it, it’s worth the climb. Feeling like you’re part of the team as opposed to a slave is also tremendously empowering.
It’s Friday so quickly, and I have a date, defined as nice dinner as opposed to rolling out in shorts to a nearby eating place, with the A on Saturday. I spend so much time with him, and am so happy, I’m in danger of uttering the L word. I meant Like. Love is to be taken seriously, and to be honest I’m genuinely terrified by it. So no Lo in 2011 I predict, just a hell lot of Li. 🙂 Have a nice day tomorrow everybody, and thank you as always for reading my blog, muah.
