Did Something Crazy Today

Today got so fed up with work I sent my boss resignation notice, told him my last day of work is 17 Oct because 18 Oct is public holiday. Now he is on overseas leave, I think he will probably get a shock when he see my email lol.

The trigger point is an email from my boss's boss, because my boss is on leave so B2 have to cover him. B2 complimented me for "taking ownership of the issue", which he was referring to our systems slowness since last week.

Even though it is a compliment, deep down I thinking kan nin na why am I the only person to take ownership of the issue, the slowness does not just affect my system, it also affects another system, and I am supposed to take charge and deal with all the shit myself, wtf right. Other people have deadlines, as if I don't have? This is not the first time, there is a limit to how much shit a person can take, I don't know how to quantify but I guess this is it.

Well to be fair at least B2 was present during all the big meetings, but only him and me, users pressed him for hourly updates, he no choice arrow me, then I no choice have to do all the shit.

The word "ownership" really got me thinking, seems like whenever there is issue, nobody in our team want to take ownership, like to say don't know, or push to another person, or take forever to follow-up, in the end reach the really jia lat stage then ask me to solve. If I leave the whole team game over. I keep telling them if one day I'm not around then how, nobody listen, I also tired of repeating.

Then experience and skills another big problem, some work 2-3 years but still as if never learn anything, a lot of things still don't know have to ask me, I mean as a professional get $3k to $4k salary it is your duty to take initiative to find out, not as if we don't have internet, go fucking google, or just use your brain to think, difficult? Sometimes feel as if my workplace is a fucking kindergarten.

Attitude another thing, most of the time I feel as if I am the only person who feels any urgency, got this guy he just play with his phone during office hours, or simply just doze off, when he got like so many things I really need him to follow-up. I remember once where he dozed off during a meeting with key users, imagine the shock I got. I mean really, you call yourself a professional?

Really give up.

Cheap Hawker Eats, But...

Handyman Came to My House

Previously mentioned that my kitchen is ugly, I booked an appointment with singaporehandyman.com, they never confirm but came anyway, think their office cock up.

So this morning two guys suddenly appeared, both were very polite and professional. In less than 15 minutes they did the measurements, took photos, I asked for two quotes, one is to replace the whole table top and the sink but the whole middle piece of wood also have to remove. Another option is to just replace the sink and the broken door and put silicone to the leaks.

Just to highlight that have to pay $25 for the site measurement, but later can refund if I accept their quotation.

Monday they send me the quotes then see how.

Kitchen So Ugly!

After 3 years+, things start to fall apart, see the wall so ugly, the water leaking, the cabinet door also broken. Now looking for someone to help me fix, went to IKEA end up they use external contractor to do these stuff, they only sell the products, install or dismantle they outsource, pricing also not cheap, dismantle 4-7 feet cabinet $250, longer more expensive. If you interested you can ask them for a price list, they have a list of how much they charge, they don't make it openly available, but can ask for a copy. Just ask for onsite measurement, or dismantle charge.

Anyway who got good company to recommend let me know, thanks. If can just fix the cabinet door and replace sink good enough, but if cannot repair have to change whole cabinet also can, just need to change bottom.

Actually I prefer those integrated type of sink, no need to worry about the silicone wear off and leak water. Behind also leaking, so those type behind raised up is better.

This one done by my father, cheap cheap only, the cabinet top and bottom, sink and the stove only $600, so can't complain, can last 3 years+ consider good already.











KFC Double Down

One big piece of chicken wrapped with bacon, mayo and cheese, very sinful, very salty, good to try but cannot eat too much.

Home-cooked Nasi Lemak

Wife cook, power.

Actually nasi lemak quite similar to Thai food, a lot of Thai food also put coconut milk so nasi lemak was easy for wife to pick up, actually nasi lemak nothing much, just put coconut milk with rice, anyone also can cook, it's the chilli that is more tricky, different people cook different taste, some very thick and dry, some more saucy like my wife cook, I prefer saucy type.

Somebody Told Me No Smoking Within 5 Metres of Bus Stop

Na beh after work want to relax enjoy a smoke also difficult, was smoking near the bus stop, this guy told me no smoking within 5 metres of bus stop, I count from the shelter is definitely more than 5 metres, then he pointed to the bus stop pole just in front of me, kan nin na, like that also can, I also not sure actually count from where, just keep quiet and moved elsewhere to smoke as I don't want to argue.

I thinking all this kind of no smoking rules really retarded, if really don't want people to smoke, why not just ban sales of tobacco, problem solved? No, government on one hand want to earn big bucks, the other hand want to come up with this kind of stupid rules to entertain the non-smokers. One pack you imagine they tax how much, cost price say $3 per pack, they tax probably $9, they earn $9 per pack, where to find such good deal.

If they ban, I don't smoke, simple.

And the non-smokers some also one kind, they think the smoke from tobacco is bad, imagine they stand at the bus stop breath in the toxic air from bus, that one is good? Go tell the bus driver don't drive within 5 metres, as if it will make any difference. Also which idiot invented this 5 metres nonsense, is there even any scientific backing that 5 metres will make any difference? Probably no, that idiot must have arbitrarily thought of it while he/she was taking a shit.
