It gets a little scary and worrying when I spend so much time at work and take my work so seriously. It feels so separate from school, so different from the other 5 semesters I’ve spent on campus. Work and school life are really different from each other, but you know what? I love to work!
Nuffnang has a really healthy culture – clean, politics-free, honest, open, communicative and interactive. Everyone treats the office like home and even though it’s only the beginning of my 4th week, I can understand why already. Work is so enjoyable and comfortable, and it’s so easy to take pride in each and every one’s individual work. I get to be in charge and when I see results, I feel totally belonged to the project, and it only keeps me going further, and more motivated than ever before. When Nuffnang’s website says that the work culture is “unconventional but fun”, it really means what it stated. At first I couldn’t really get used to it all, being more used to the formal, corporate ways of bigger organizations – but now, I’m seriously enjoying being who I really am at work. Truthfully
So I can go on and on, but let me just zoom the topic on to my new colleagues, Dana and Melody! Popular fashion bloggers, the Monoxious girls, dropped by last Friday..and as I am typing this now, guess who appeared in the office???
Putting a nice picture of her here in case she reads my blog, hohoho!
First time I’m seeing her in person! Nuffies call her Wendy, and they were discussing about her wedding in March…
Oh well. Was I “starstruck”, like how Esther put it? I think it’s more curiosity than anything else Very soon though the internal excitement died down because everyone’s so used to seeing her around already. Don’t want to look so “sua gu” right??? But she’s Singapore’s top blogger and she wants to know who’s number 2! HAHAHA. I found that quite amusing!
With Esther, Melody and Dana
Group photo! (they were playing band hero!)
Nuffies picture after steamboat dinner at Chong Qing – “guest visitor” Timothy Tiah! Very nice guy
(The Magic of Chong Qing Hotpot – according to Ming, “best steamboat restaurant ever!”)
A movie I’m really interested to watch.
In the city that never sleeps, love is always on the mind. Those passions come to life in a collaboration of storytelling from some of today’s most imaginative filmmakers and featuring an all-star cast. Together they create a kaleidoscope of the spontaneous, surprising, electrifying human connections that pump the city’s heartbeat. Sexy, funny, haunting and revealing encounters unfold beneath the Manhattan skyline. From Tribeca to Central Park to Brooklyn the story weaves a tale of love as diverse as the very fabric of New York itself.
Why do people fall in love?
Aren’t they afraid to discover the ugly truth that will inevitably emerge after some time?
How does one know what is true love?
How does one realize what’s important and what’s not?
How do I learn to forget the “flaws” and focus on the person’s strengths?
If I only keep seeing the person’s faults and perceived weaknesses, does that mean that I no longer love the person?
Is this all supposed to be learnt “naturally”?
Is it about age, maturity level or just a matter of time?
Why does the “love element” come and fade?
Are my feelings superficial?
Why do I want to marry him and yet I can change my mind almost immediately?
Is it him or is it me?
Does it have to be both of us?
Does love always mean making sacrifices?
What on earth is love?
This certainly isn’t! Hollywood’s golden couple calls it quits after raising 6 children together, while being unmarried and totally wanting to be separated. Their $330 million fortune is set to split as well.
Pretty sad for them.
It’s all up to circumstances, but if I were Aniston, I probably wouldn’t be in a hurry to take Pitt back, if at all.
