nothing beats mingling around a group of service enthusiasts
everyone's en-route to carving their own legacy in where we are being placed
a day being a hospian, forever in life we'll be a hospian :)
we are definitely a cut above the rest :)

revisiting K.A.P, a place where memories will never fade
the days we dropped our bags and risk them being stolen
walked our way to bukit timah hawker for lunch
flipping those textbks and scribbling those formulas
- my oh my -
tHe love-hate rELatiOnsHip
- 100 emails -
in a span of 3hrs while i was held-up in a meeting with my freight forwarders
thereafter, i took a look at my phone and my jaw dropped
good job people.....from wherever in the world you all are
my poor rottenberry that vibrated and blink signals like nobody's business
luckily i always hv the gorgeous Four Seasons Beverly Hills to bring me to dreamy land
- snore -
it was definitely a very humbling learning journey for the past 6days
every step i took within the expo hall, my knowledge widens
i came back from this trip with many thoughts in mind
most importantly, we must never forget our roots...
"everything we know, we learned from someone else"
if given a chance, i would love to hunt down the below and place it in my office!
hell anw, despite having only a day of R&R, i went on board the coolest mrt-alike-train ride
the whole tunnel was approx 10mins and the lightnings were amazing!
the short journey ride have made me realized something important:
from today onwards, i must make sure i work in detail, leading to near-perfection
it's been a good 13years since i last visited during my uncle's wedding
in a few hours time, i will be boarding the flight on a 5hrs+ journey enroute to a city i yearn to re-visit
this time round, the 'dream' comes true with a responsibility on hand
it's really amazing how business trips allows me to visit places where :
1) i've never thot of visiting (brunei & cambodia)
2) places where i used to enjoy so much but just cant seem to find the time to head there again (sha)
will be traveling with several family friends whom are all working in the automotive industry,
tyres in specific :)
will be meeting up with many familiar clients whom i've only gotten the chance to hear their voice,
and now will get to meet them in person :)
will be seeing my 7th uncle & family and esp my dearest 2 little i-wan-to-box them cousins
- hahaha -
as much as i am overly-stressed of being out-station and having to take control of my local operations
i believed these challenges in life doesn't comes by easily for anyone
and i am just glad that i hv done my very best to live by each day hoping for the best in all
- it's definitely ALL IN THE MIND -
i will be BACK :)
exceeding my personal expectations
molding a different ME
creating the best impression of my own self in others eyes
never look back on the chosen path for no one takes pity on YOU
it was the process of sourcing for the most practical gift to chilling out @ a unique place
as we grow out of our youth shell, we re-visit what we used to share as young peeps
my birthday, the absolute picnic, the blue sky, white white cotton clouds, enormous poodle, stranded balloons, diaper cutie boy, weird couple, music, bird feathers and shits.
all the wonderful wonderful happenings, thank you my closest sweetest pals for making this day an absolute heartfelt day for me!
fleeting moments i'm not going to to be edible. thank you once again for putting in so much effort!

booked ourselves with the restaurant one week in advance
but, it turn out to be a torturous nightmare ahead
- lol -
the initially happy us
shocked in awe when the whole LUMP of food arrived
despite it all, nothing beats the companionship that allowed us to survive the night thru
Reaching OUT. Reaching UP
i paid a price to scare my wits away in a cinema
but it came along with contagious laughter shared with many other Singaporeans
ting & i gave yg a shock-of-his-life,
right after he ends his soccer game, he received an sms from me...
without his consent or acknowledgment,
we went ahead to book him a tix for the movie
he ain't aware of what's the show about nor did he show any prior interest
still, we dragged him along
- niak hiak niak -
i've always been a fan of jack neo's productions,
as every movie of his speaks of the real-on-goings of the environment i grew up in
i really teared for this show, but they were all tears of laughter
in support of my dearest cousin's event,
right after the movie, i dragged them both to OC to view NDP Live
i was really keen to head to marina for the fireworks display, but reckon we might not be in time
with that aside, it was a MUST for me to participate in the Nation's Pledge Moment
and WE DID IT together @ OC!
initially it was an embarrassing moment but thereafter we really embrace the experience
it was really fun singing out loud, waving and clapping our hands together with the melodies
nothing beats this unique way of celebrating National Day!
all thanks to yg's laziest of not bringing his dslr,
i do not hv any ndp 09 memories to keep digitally...
nonetheless, it was a great night well-spent!
Happy 44th Birthday Singapore!
!!! ever-proud of how a small island have developed into what it is today !!!

i've always been a firm believer of:
thus, many of my service preachings comes from the scenarios within
this show was a live-walking-textbook to me
after leaving the hospitality industry and zooming into the corporate world, i've taken a new perspective towards the below scene:
GM: General Mgr
PHM: Potential candidate for Hotel Mgr
GM: the role of a mgr is to look after the guests?
PHM: tat's right...
GM: no tat's wrong...
GM: i've already employed hundreds of people to look after that: waiters porters receptionists...
GM: in mgt, ur no.1 responsibility is to maximise profits and protect the interest of the hotel
GM: this is a business...
GM: if u don't understand that, maybe u r not the right person for the job!
to my surprise, an idol's biography have also revealed something:
"I never made a mistake of putting profits ahead of people, and I believe part of Four Seasons' worldwide acclaim is built primarily on the strong relationships i've built over the years with owners, partners and board members who shared my standards, and with the thousand of employees, managers, and executives who helped make the company such a success." ~ Isadore Sharp
I still strongly believed that Service is in priority when I encounter any business dealings with my suppliers or clients. However, no matter how great one's service can be, if the profit margin is being compromised, it just doesn't make any business sense. On the other hand, the service-passionate me alway thinks that an excellent service provider is worth the investments for smoother operations :)

~omg,tell me I am not OLD~
A student no more
But an Ultimate Slacker and more
Being a couch potato
Laughing out loud
Taking photo with 70degree of face
XXX stuff.. -winks-
Hanging around with close friends like the breasident club to share interesting stuffs like gossips
Bitchy reality shows and then cursing and swearing while watching
Watching Friends and then laugh along with the audiences
Chatting around and stopping at every single spot along TP Biz concourse
Driving around and still being nagged by mum & sister for not knowing how to get to destination
