never again

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

I cant seem to pen down my thoughts... Maybe there are too many things going on at the same time that I dont know how deal with them, all squeezed and jumbled up screaming for attention from pieces of loosely connected and overworked brain matter in my head. Sometimes I can feel the pulses throbbing right smack in between my eyes late at night, familiar and tolerated.

my yesterdays are all boxed up, and neatly put away,
but every now and then you come to mind..

A good friend had his wedding ceremony on the 28th. I was again the designated best man cum driver, and I was happy to be helping him out on his big day. It all happened in between the days that pushed me over the edge, on the previous Saturday night and that night after all the guests have left and the wedding hall turned once again into badminton courts. It made me realise a few things I should have a long time ago. My patience has finally run out.

butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away
leavin' me to carry on and wonder why
was it you that kept me wondering through this life
when you knew that I was always on your side

We have not contacted each other since. There are no more reasons for me to say anything at all. My life needs some cleaning up and that, I will do with feverish determination. For the skeptics who think otherwise and is just waiting for me to stumble yet again, I take off my hat and smile. It is a scary thought and you have every reason to doubt me.

Have a lil faith in me.

back on track

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

I cant make up my mind on where to "park" my blog entries. Xanga's ok but I still dont like the fact that membership is required in order to make comments. So, back to blogspot.

Anyway, its May. I left M and started work at NUS 3 days ago. The process of getting hired here was daunting, I submitted my application in December 05 and after 5 months of interviews, phonecalls, anxiety attacks and constant prayers, here I am sitting at my new cubicle at the corner of the room, with high partitions, ample storage and working space and total privacy. Things I left behind in 2003 when I left HDB. I am back on track, professionally, and if there are no major problems, I'll "settle down" here career-wise.

And why not? The environments' great. I have wonderful colleagues at the School of Medicine's IT Unit - Kevin, the only male in the unit before I came, was born on 8th August too! although 6 years earlier than me heh. Loo See is from the same NTU CE 1999 batch as me. Gek Luang was the first to greet me on my 1st day of work and made me feel at ease with her cheerful banter, she asked me to add her in my MSN list and then gave me the entire unit's MSN accounts too, I've got them all in my MSN list now heh. Leo's cubicle is just beside mine and she was the one who helped me setup my PC and accounts, teached me admin stuff like where to collect stationery items and how to send internal mails, she also brought me up to the Dean's office and introduced me to some of the staff there. Qui Ying has her own room which is beside the Manager's, so I have not had the chance to interact with her. My manager, Vincent, is a serious man who is very clear on work expectations. Its been only 2.5 days on the job and I'm already looking forward to a lot of good years contributing and working here.
