"compromise is only for the strong, the weak can only follow"

I read this quote in some movies or drama which resonates with me very closely. I once explained this concept to my dear friend Mr Sim, to get him to stop measuring people to his level, especially when they are our teammates.
So one day, the other friend whom i introduced into the team, gave a very "strange and unfounded" remark, and I snapped.
Eric: "I chose August because I want them to report" Me:  "Yes i know you want but why do you want, we need to justify" Eric: "No, because I want him to report it" Me: "You can't say things like that, this is not your father's bank, you can't just use your opinion to request submission of a specific time, your opinion does not matter to them"
Ouch?? Harsh but fair in some regard.
When you are self declaring yourself as a Regional Governance in a Japanese Bank, your opinion does not matter, the corporate title doe…

I'm sorry

I'm sorry i did not fulfill my promise to blog monthly, July and August had been very stressful. I had to dug deep to maintain sanity, efficiency and remain alive.

Anyways, after 2 weeks of not being home over the weekends, I decided to come home earlier on a Friday, instead of the usual Saturday evenings. I called mom to ask if she wanted to have supper because i was having my dinner, she was stumped and very excited. As usual, she ignore my question and ask something else, I immediately steer her back to my question and end it there.

 A warm welcome is always good to have when you're coming "Home" after some time. But sometimes I wonder if it's the same for every parent, longing for their kids to be home. Sooner or later I will not be within reach and they will have to get used to it?

The few things I love about Singapore is the safety and security, the low taxation and crazy efficient on everything. The latter contribute a lot to the stressful environment, th…

Mopped up May and June's JUDGEMENT !!!

Didn't post any shitz in May because I was too busy at work. My buddy came into the bank and I had to show him the ropes around, fight with external people and trip internally by our own "civil war". Somehow I managed to survive.



The friend is into his 2nd month and I have been quite harsh on him because it's my reputation on the line that I brought him in, he got a promotion in corporate title, increase in base pay and will be getting some nice bonus next year too.

How harsh had i been? To a point where our manager had to private message me to check if that is the "normalcy" tone or language my friend is used to me talking to. Opps?

My boss explained his views and I did so with mine, we agree to disagree and then moved on.

It's a very beautiful affair to have such an understanding boss, he checks on each and every one of us to ensure we are doing OK every day. He thank us specifically for our efforts on each and every chore he entrusted us with, respec…

Amazing April

As we bid farewell to the menacing March of 2019, remember the lost of my Huawei P20 Pro ?? I've got it back !!! WHAT ARE THE FUCKING ODDS of retrieving your mobile phone in this age right?

So I did file an online report with the Singapore Police Force on lost of property with the intention of blacklisting my phone's IMEI [ International Mobile Equipment Identification ] to discourage shops to take in this mobile phone because it was obtained illegally which would in turn would lead to lesser phone thefts.

To my amazement, the police went down to the location, retrieve the CCTV and with details provided to them on the time, location and made of mobile phone, they managed to identify the person who "had" my mobile phone.

I was told, by the security that "some guy took it" on the day of the event, before I decide to call it quits and head home. HOWEVER it turned out that a staff from the same supermarket i was shopping in, "picked" my phone while I …

Curse of the "menacing" March.

So the best month of February left, it's the best month because I was born in Feb, valentine's day happens in Feb, it is also the shortest month which means you get paid a lot earlier the following month.



Here comes the pain.
Recently I lost my mobile phone
Then I lost money on mahjong
Then I broke my toenail and cut my toe because the kitchen was wet
And the shameless person who dared insult my father had the cheek to borrow money from me, when he mocked him in the past... and had the guts to lie in my face. *still nothing in my bank account*

The reason I lent him because I wanted to "pretend" to be the "bigger" person, because seeing him lie to me about how he was on his way to the airport and how he lost his wallet made me felt so absurd about how sick a person can be. I'm no angel either in this regard, the redeeming factor that made me not chase over it was only because my cousins are still young and I did not want them to be affected by lame shits…

Thirty 2

16,830,720 seconds . . .

That was how long I've lived, excluding the days in my mother's womb and pardon any backdating to be done at the time of this article. That's 1/3 of any healthy living human being's lifespan, or 1/2 in my case? Something popped up about average Americans with fractions, 1/3 is larger than 1/2 cuz 3 is greater than 2! #justcantgetenough



As I look back and reflect on my mediocre life and scrutinize that lack-lustrous CV of mine, I began to wonder when do I want to go back to, to fix things, or to change things.

Back to primary school, where I should focus on sports and dream of being Singapore's first BPL player?Back to secondary school where I should focus on bball instead of badminton even though badminton was my forte but I had much more passion for team sport?Back to national slavery where I should not take a diploma and instead immediately dive into finance, then again not, that diploma set such great foundations of mine today.Or not pic…

Are the usual answers.

Just some days ago I thought, reviving the dead Or turning back time would be great  ! ~ Why??

I don't understand

why do people look down on their phone and cross the road when they clearly see a vehicle coming towards them, do they expect us drivers to be sane 100% of the time and gamble with their lives?



Why do older people enjoy cycling AGAINST the flow of traffic? What wisdom are there in the aged when they clearly have impaired vision,  lagged reflex etc.

Why do females enjoy cutting queue so much and expect doors to be held and food to be served to them first when they clearly preach about gender equality and diversity?



I feel like running over that biatch that pretend to not care when my vehicle was approaching... knock down the old man who do not give flying fk about his life because he has both feet and h…
