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,

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,

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,

My April 2017


Hi people, today’s blog post will be purely just my thoughts and feelings for April 2017!! Just a summary of my life happenings for the month of April in year 2017!! 🙂

Read on if you are interested on my humble thoughts and little feelings!! In the first week of April, I am feeling all sorts of positive emotions like happiness, excited and hyper activeness!! Since it is the first week of a new month and all. A new beginning for a brand new Mindy!! (This thought always pop up in my mind every first day of each month)!! 😀

Second week of April is all about being when can my Friday arrive on a red carpet with lots of flashing lights and cheering crowds of thundering clapping to go along with all the glamour!! Seriously it started to become such a drag for Friday to arrive in style and anticipation of yours truely!! 😛

Third week of April, and this is the most roller coaster week. Monday is always being blue for everyone whom need to report to work. Tuesday is always a day to continue to try and get rid of those blue feelings. And suddenly, it is already mid week Wednesday. 🙂

Since my boss uses a mid week Wednesday to announced to the whole company that there will be a retrenchment round the corner. Everyone at work started to become anxious and anticipating as well. Anxious that they will be the ones that called into the office and received that special retrenchment letter. Anticipate for the same thing. Contradicting of emotion for all staff~ Yet we continue to hold strong and march forward with our steady and firm foot steps!! 😛

Finally the last week of April, results for the list of people that got retrenchment are out. Some came as a surprise while others’ departure came as a sweet gift from God or in a human form; my boss!! 😛

This week have been a good one for me since I enjoyed two days off from work from taking my annual leave and recharged my battery!! Glad I took the two days off work, since the minute I am back at my desk, the workload seems to pile up slowly but definitely. 😀

I am both happy and glad that my superior saw my potential to continue to grow with the company. I guess my performance at work seems to impress my boss enough to strike off my name from the list of people to retrench. Guess all the hard work did pay off in the end, especially at such a crucial time!! 😀

Not that I am gloating at those that got the retrench treatment, just glad that I still have a full time job. This allows me to continue enjoying my daily routine. It helps me to prevent from going to all those troublesome interviews and it always have the ability to make me visit the toilet frequently!! 😉

I guess everything turns out great for me. I hope everything will continue to work in my way for the rest of the days~ Of course I will continue to work hard and strive for the best!! Fighting!! 😀

Wish everyone have a great and awesome weekend ahead!! Have fun!! 😛

XOXO,

Cheer Up, It’s Mid-Week

Hi people!! It’s mid week!! Hooray!! Another two more days to weekend!! 😀

Today’s blog post is just pure rambling on my part. Since it has been such a long time since I write about my heart felt thoughts at this tiny space!! 😉

Nowadays whenever it is time to go to work I dragged my feet along. That is until the minute hand ticks to my knock off time and suddenly I feel that my two short legs can’t carry me fast enough to speed along the route to my home!! 😛

The reason being my bottle-neck feeling at work is because of my colleagues. They started not being co-operative enough. Kept asking questions, yet still did nothing after getting the answer. Response to my answer to their questions is always the same thing saying that nope I don’t want to do it. -.-

I just cannot understand how they think. I am fine with you people not doing the work, I can do those “mundane” tasks. Just do not waste my precious time answering your questions and not giving me any productive actions in return. -.-

My mindset is really simple, just don’t ask me any questions when you do not have the heart or willingness to do the job!! Simple as that, just keep quiet and sleep at your desk or play with your phone. •.•

I am feeling super annoyed whenever they keep asking me the process of my routine. Example is customer emailed to us and asked us to expedite an order. I have printed the PO and already in process of entering the order into the system and just a second away from releasing the order to the operations team. Here they goes, asking me thousand and one question in regards to this order. My facial expression was like -.-||| ~~~ >.<

I do not know how to overcome this situation. Some of you may advice to speak to the management. But I refuse to do so, since in my opinion our management was a waste of air. They did nothing. Nothing of importance anyway. Enough said. Feeling super dissapointed. 😦

Therefore what a little worker like me can do is pray hard for the weekend to quickly arrive. So that at least I can relax for two days before back to facing my colleagues’ evil ways!! @.@

Meanwhile I shall continue to do my work as usual. I shall continue to remind myself that just do what you are suppose to do which is work. Do not and I repeat to myself, do not talk too much unnecessary stuff with these colleagues. It is better to not mixed work and personal together with them. It is best to be purely professional with them. 🙂

I can do it! Cheer up, it is already mid week!! You already survived half of the week, you can definitely hang in there for another two more days!! Fighting!! 😀

Decided to post a selfie that I took this morning with my favorite drink; Green Tea to remind myself always smile!! 😛 Do not forget to smile through all the storm and thunder!! 😀

Together with my selfie is a plant I saw this evening when I was on my way home. Wanted to share this beautiful scene with all of you whom are reading this naggy blog post!! 😛

Love how those leaves look, so fresh, so bright and so young!! I will learn from them!! Continue to live well and better each day. Be a stronger person than the day before!! 😀

Let’s all fight for a better tomorrow!! 🙂 Wish all of you whom are reading this blog post to have an awesome day ahead!! 😀

Cheers,

Goodbye 2016, Welcome 2017!!!

Hi people!! Two blog post in a day!! 😛

This blog post is mainly to thank everyone whom have read my blog for the past years and continue to come back to read more about my humble daily affairs!! 🙂

Thank you everyone!! Just feeling thankful for all that had ever happened in 2016 which turn me into a better person and made me who I am today!! 🙂


I welcome 2017 with open hands and hope that 2017 will be an even better year ahead!! 2017 please continue to treat me well and if can, treat me even better than 2016 did!! 😉

In 2016 I continue to brace myself for all the obstacles being thrown my way at my workplace!! I guess I did a good job overcoming them, gave myself a good pat on the shoulder (can’t reach my back, normally people will give themselves a pat on the back :P) after each day at work!! 🙂

Although I always felt super tired after each day at work, but with the happy faces of my colleagues (my sales team colleagues only) I always have a way to cheer myself up and drag my tired soul and body to work day after each day!! Continue to “fight” the other departments and customers with them by my side!! Together the sales department is invincible!! 😀

2016 in short have treat me well. In 2016, I had a healthy lifestyle of exercising more freqently (like 6 days per week, not inclusive of my usual walking of 10,000 steps per day routine)!! I enjoyed my reading hobby, managed to achieve a record of at least one to two books per month (those with at least a few hundreds of chapters)!! 😛

Spent lots of time with my family and bonding with my favorite sisters. Chatting on the phone with her was always such a happy affair that either of us wanted the phone call to end even though it was late into the night! 😛

Although all that was stated above was such simple tasks or ordinary happenings… yet I appreaciate all that has ever happened!! 🙂

Will continue to strive on to be a better person in 2017!! Together let’s all fight for a better tomorrow… Last but not least, thank you all of you whom have stand by my side, regardless of how little or much you did to help me (reading my blog post and giving me likes help too). You gave me the much needed strength to continue to write (or type) out my feelings and thoughts in this little space!! 🙂

Happy New Year 2017 to all of you out there!! 😉

Love,

BookwormMindy 😉
