Training Accomplished

Hello everyone!! Today’s blog post will be about what I have been busy with in this week. First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy Friday!! Thank God it was Friday!! 😉

Next, today is the start of a whole new month. December 2017 will be filled with relaxing and enjoyment for each and everyday!! I am totally looking forward to it. December shall be exciting and allows me to use everyday to the fullest capacity for enjoyment of life!! 😉

Thank God and life that November 2017 was a great month filled with happiness, adventure and the courage needed to pursue a new environment (new workplace)!! Everything was being planned out beautifully, I just needed to carry out the actions and walked the path that God have laid it out for me!! 😉

Anyway, this whole week I have been reporting to my new workplace for training sessions. Every morning I would tag along with my director for the product trainings. I am able to understand and be friended the products with just five mornings. I am totally looking forward to reporting to work in January 2018. 😉

Everyone at work was being really nice and friendly to me. Especially the director, he was always wearing a smile and explaining the functions of the products to me patiently. My colleagues were all looking out for me and guiding me towards the pantry which was filled with all sorts of drinks and snacks. 😉

Let me just hope and pray that they will continue to treat me well and better in January 2018!! God bless me! Other than that, I am happy with everything about this company. There really isn’t much that I can complain about~ I enjoyed my time there learning all I could about the products, my jobscope and spending time with the director and colleagues!! 😀

Now I am being off duty which allows me to have a month of holiday before going back to the work force in January 2018!! Therefore I would be having much more time on my hands to do more blogging and sharing of my life events with you people!! Continue to stay tuned, meanwhile I shall end my blog post here as it is getting longer with my ramblings and random thoughts~ 🙂

Cheers,

BookwormMindy 😛

Goodbye To EA Sales Team


Cuties in the first photo from left to right: BookwormMindy, Daphne, Daniel, Dustin, Geok Hong and Josephine!! We made the dynamic team!! 🙂

Hello people, today’s blog post will be dedicated to EA Sales Team! The photos above was being taken in year 2016 when Daniel left his post as Sales Manager. In his replacement would be Dustin leading the Sales Team under the title of International Sales Lead!! 🙂

I have been working in this company for a near two years. During the beginning I did enjoy every single day at work. Hey, I even look forward to going into the office to work during the weekends. 😉

But as usual, great things does not last forever. Once Daniel was out of the picture, things got kind of out of hand. As times goes by, things beginning to pile my way. Responsibilities getting more and more, sometimes it was getting out of my league. Although they did ask if I needed help and I decline all help unless for problems that I knew was within their capabilities. 😦

Some of the responsibilities was being shared among a few of us, yet most of the load was being pushed my way. Why? I did subtly hint and question the Sales Lead… The answer I got back was kind of dissapointing. He said the response or feedback he got back from the few other departments was my work was the best among the few of us. 😦

Did he actually thought I would continue to bite my tongue and grit my teeth through each and every day till it was time for my retirement? If he did, he thought wrong. I am not one who can stand such nonsense for long. And I didnt. I coolly placed my resignation letter on his desk. When they all asked me why I left, I simply told them that I wanted to further my studies. 😉

Since I throw the situation at you a few times and you were not able to give me a great solution. I would most definitely find the next best solution for myself. I am not an individual whom stays in a miserable group for long. I didnt bid them with a bitter parting. Instead we all bid goodbyes in a sweet note. 😉

I personally thought that I handle the situation very beautifully. My ex-colleagues till today still seems to be messaging me for my consoling them of the nasty and sticky situation they got themselves into. I left with a sigh yet in a hyper and thankful mood. Thanks for everyone whom once or more help me in any way. 🙂

Without them, I would never be who I am today. Whatever sticky or nasty situation or comments they ever threw in my way was a “pill” to make me grow better and stronger. And for that I thank them!! 😉

I may no longer be working with this bunch of people together day in day out anymore, but I guess I would always remember them. For their kindness, their trickster manners, the fun times we shared together and not to forget those taichi style of pushing all their workload to my desk and left for to handle all those irritating and troublesome customers and backend troubles!! ;P

Last not but least, a final thank you and goodbye!! 😉

Smile Always,

BookwormMindy 🙂

Happy Birthday BookwormMindy! (FY2017)


Hello everyone!! Today’s blog post will be my birthday post!! Just a normal ordinary day like any other day on my birthday!! 🙂

Nothing really special happened, just that my sister cooked me a fabulous meal filled full to the brim with her love towards me!! Thankful for all the love she ever shower upon me since I was young like a baby!! 🙂

Always felt thankful for the love my family gave me since young. Although they can be kind of control freak at times, I understand that they are coming from the perspective of trying to protect me from harm’s way, as much as they can. I thanked them that they gave me as much freedom as I could possibly get, their trust in me and for always having patience and understanding in me. 😀

They are my strongest support in this world, they are my everything! Just wanted to shout out to them that I love them with all my heart and thankful for their love towards me and always believeing in me!! 😀

The actual day of my birthday, we spent the day lazing around in my sister’s lovely home. We catch up on as much episodes of Taiwan idol drama as we can, gossip about the actors and had a heart to heart talk among ourselves!! It was an ordinary day filled with comfortable moments and lovely atmosphere!! 😀

Yesterday (Friday, 4 August) my colleagues celebrated my birthday for me at my workplace!! Just a tiny adorable panda cake for me, with a present wrapped in self designed tweety bird wrapper and not to forget a tweety bird birthday card all designed by them!! 😀

I playfully asked my colleague why get me a panda cake instead of a tweety cake? Her response was because she couldn’t find a adorable tweety cake plus she knew that one of my hobby is sleeping (I love to sleep early)! 😛

In the end they got me a a tweety bird t-shirt and a woodstock t-shirt!! Thankful for all their effort in creating the tweety bird card and writing their best wishes for me! We had a busy week at work, I knew that they created this world surprise for me within a short span of two hours, as we were so filled to the brim with our work!! Still thankful for all their effort and time, no matter how little it was being put into this little surprise!! 😀

After work, I met up with my childhood friend! We went for dinner and she passed me my present with a carefully handwritten birthday card! Thankful for the well written card with all her best wishes to me! 🙂

She even insisted to treat me to dinner, therefore I return the favor my treating her to our favorite dessert: ice cream!! We spent a good part of the short amount of time we got together to exchange our current situations with each other!! I gave her whatever advice which I deem useful and hope it helps her to make a decision which is suitable to her!  😛 
Last but not least, happy belated birthday to bookwormmindy! For year 2017, hope it continues to treat me even better than it is already treating me! Hope everything will go on even smoother, hoping that I will continue to be more bless and blissful each and every day!! 😀

To many more years to come in the near future!! 😛

Cheers,

BookwormMindy 😀

Made Up My Mind


Hi people!! I am back for another update before this week comes to an end. Let me share with you people a news on my current life happenings.  🙂

Since my post on my working life a few weeks ago, I have already made up my mind that I will be resigning from my post in this company. Just that this news will not be spread to my fellow colleagues and manager too soon. I will give it another week or two before I will pass the message and notify them of my decision. 🙂

I just received a text message from one of my fellow colleague sharing the news that he will be leaving his post by the end of this month in our team group chat on whatsapp. It then prompted me to share the news here with you people in advance, even before I share this piece of news with my colleagues at work. 🙂

I did share my decision with my family, they expressed their support towards my decision made!! After knowing the main reasons for my departure in this company, they encouraged me to present them my resignation letter as soon as possible. 😛 

I guess it will be time to start up a new adventure soon!! I am looking forward to it with all my heart!! Fighting Mindy!! 😀

Meanwhile I just applied for my annual leaves from this coming Monday all the way to Wednesday. I will use this short period of time to rest well and get myself ready for the battle I will need to fight after I get back to work on coming Thursday!! 🙂

I am planning to use this period of time to catch up on as many chapters of novels, episodes of variety shows and dramas, spend as much time as possible with my family. I will also be meeting up with my dearest sister on Tuesday, simply for sisterly bonding and lunch gossips session!! I totally can’t wait to do all the above!! Just the mention of those above got me all excited and hyper active!! 😉

Hope you people will wish me all the best in my life and give me all the encouragement in the world!! 😉

Have a lovely weekend!!

Byes,

BookwormMindy 😀

Feeling Lost~

*Today’s post will be about my feelings and thoughts of working in my current workplace. Please read on and leave me a comment. I need to gather some comments to make a decision on my future! Thank you in advance for reading and leaving me a comment on you thoughts and advices!! 😉

Hello people!! I will get to the point right away now!! In recent months, I have been feeling burned out and really tired about my job. For those whom do not know, I am working as a sales admin assistant at an oil and gas company. The reason why I am feeling so tired and having a headache for most days is because of my colleagues. 😦

The job itself I am coping well. It is my group of colleagues that I am getting really sick and tired of. Imagine tons of purchase orders on my desk waiting to be entered into the system, my colleagues is busing walking about the place yelling that he is tired and sick of this workplace. The other one is either busy playing games on her phone or surfing the net. 😦

Those purchase orders was being printed out from customer’s website, written up, queueing up to be entered, finally getting entered and stamping the done chop on them all by myself. Imagine if you are in my shoes, would you be frustrated? Day after day, if this is not enough for you to go bonkers, hang in there, the story continues on… 😦

While I am working on one of the many purchase orders, the one walking about the company will ask me any new purchase orders in the customer website. Meanwhile the one playing games will ask if there is alot of purchase orders on my desk. I mean hello, don’t you have a pair of eyes, you can’t take a look for youself? You don’t have a pair of hands? You can’t log in to the customer website and check it out for youself? 😦

If I am free and doing nothing like youself, I will be more than happy to help you out! But I am busy trying to do my part as much as I can, yet they are not doing anything useful to help the situation, instead they are adding on to my workload!! 😦

The above still not enough to drive you mad? Nevermind I still have case scenarios to share. Hang in there~ Whenever I encounter purchase orders that we have run out of material to sell to, I will send an email to the whole sales team and check with them what material can I use to machine to size. Not a soul would give a damn and reply my email. Until maybe a day or two then they will start to look at the email and ask me to repeat the situation to them all over again!! Why do everyone expect an email and do not read it at all??? I simply do not understand!! 😦

Nowadays, they expected me to write up the order even if we have run out of material. I am expected to contact the respective head of department to check up on the specification of material meets to purchase order requirements. Since I ask the team, no one wanted to give me an answer, they expected me to provide the answer. They will then only give a standard answer of go ahead and machine it. -.-

Our sales lead is not doing his job as well. Customers contacted him to check if orders can be pull in and deliver any earlier than order original due date, without checking with anyone, he would give the customers a promise that we could meet earlier delivery date. When actual promised date came, we are unable to deliver material on time, the whole team would have to face the wrath of the customers!! 😦

All thathe cares about is we entered as much orders as possible, in return the system will show a good figure at the end of each day. He do not care if we can deliver material on time or if the material is in good conditions!! He only care about “money” showing up in the system, this will give him a good look infront of our boss. -.-

I seriously do not know how long more can I stand working in this place. The people here have great issues, no one is working their part! Yet they ask tons of questions and give me the response like “eww, this one looks difficult, I do not want to enter this order, I will continue to left it on your desk for you”, “I only want to enter the simple orders” and “huh, this order have so many lines, you enter ok? Proceed to walk away from my desk.” are a few to name!! 😦

After sharing some of the issues that got on my nerves like every single day, do you get my frustration? Or are you still feeling all good and undisturb? Peaceful as heaven? I am really curious about all your feelings and thoughts! 😉

Since a good six months I have been surrounded by negativity, that’s probably the reason why I have not been sharing much my personal thoughts in this blog space!! I love sharing positivity around, therefore I hate to spread negativity. Lifes goes on!! 🙂

Meanwhile I sincerely encouraged all of you whom are reading this blog post to leave me a comment on your thoughts and advices for me!! I would definitely love to read and know how others look at this situations and how they can overcome it!! I could use some help and advices. 🙂

Meanwhile I will continue to sail on ahead in a slow and steady pace. I will continue to do my part to as best to my capability as possible!! Cheer on for me!! 😀

I will try to generate as much positivity during this weekend while awaiting for all your advices to flow in~ 😉

Smile Always,

BookwormMindy 😉

Aussie’s Cuties


Hihi everybody, today’s blog post will be on a team of Aussie’s Cuties!! One of my colleague just came back from his trip to Australia with his family. The sweet guy bought a little softie for each of his team mates. Which includes yours truely, I am so blessed!! 😀

Felt so thankful and bless when the moment my eyes landed on my little softie kangaroo!! I always wanted a kangaroo softie, but my family didnt get a chance to visit Australia yet. The last time this colleage of mine went to Australia he didnt got us any softie, since he didnt went to their local farm and couldnt find any cute soft toy animals over there… 🙂

The softie above kind of symbolises each of us in this Sales Team!! The kangaroos represents Jo, GH and me. The koalas represents Daphne and WY!! Eugene didnt got any soft toys for himself, although he did informed us that he got extra koalas and kangaroos for his children!! His daughter even help to pick out these Aussie cuties for us!! 😀

Alright I guess that shall be all for the day. Just wanted to share with everyone how cute they look and I really really really love kangaroos!!! It is a challenge to find any kangaroos related merchadise in Singapore since it is not a icon of Singapore, therefore it is always my pleasure to own a kangeroo related stuff!! 😀

Hope everyone have a great day ahead!! TGIF!! Happy Friday to all of you!! 😀

Bless XOXO,
