Just busy

Hello world! Just want to say to you all, particularly to those who mailed me asking me whether I am down with health problems again that I am doing mighty fine. Health wise has been good and I am due for my next check up in 2 months time.

Anyway, the silence is due to the fact that I am currently heavily engaged in the
annual corporate battle. At the same time, I am also facilitating the battles of others. Like I said, this year's battles are going to be more intense and interesting and they have lived up to the expectations.

Plenty to talk about particularly my experiences in my recent interviews. No, not as an interviewee but as an interviewer. Yeah, trying to recruit an additional guy into my team and this new experience has been interesting!

Tell you guys next week. Cheers!

Happy New Year!!!

I remember my first time as an interviewer, you really see a lot of strange and wonderful characters whom you have to evaluate their suitability to join the team.

Anyway, we're waiting for any bonus announcement from the boss. I think if we don't have any, it will be a disappointment but it's better than being given the boot. ;-)

purple mushroom - well, i dont have that feeling yet.

angie tan - that's the unfortunate mentality... that we are still fortunate to have a job... and by that, employer remove the increment and bonus even when they are doing well.

Aoki - i am always around... as you can see in fb.

kyh - hehhehe... more so if you're in my shoes.

zewt said...
