Work update.... lazy.


Work update.... lazy.

Hi people, how's your week so far? Just some update on upcoming events. From the end of next week, there will be the Hillsong Conference at the Acer Arena. It's quite a distance from where I am staying, and it will cost a bomb, so I doubt I am able to afford to go for the Hillsong Conference. I however, am going for one of the night rallies, when Joyce Meyer will be speaking.

Some of my friends are coming over from Toowoomba in July, so I will get to meet them. That'll be great.

Apart from that, been kept busy with work this week. Last week was rather quiet however. But anyways, work is work, and money is money.

Had korean for dinner twice this week. We went for korean last night and another day, both nearby. Well, it was not too bad. At the traditional korean restaurant, you'd get four side dishes with the main menu ordered. We ordered three, my flatmate, me and a korean friend of mine. Hot Pot of beef stew, a chicken ginseng soup and a chilli mackarel stew. Don't ask me what the korean names were. I have NO IDEA.

I am officially a Senior First Aider now!


I am officially a Senior First Aider now!

Hi people... I have the cough again. SIGH. Been breaking my vocal chords the past few days. I do know that on those days that I have a could (or impending one), I would perform poorly at work. Being a casual, that is detrimental to work performance. Well, what can I say?

I finally completed my Senior First Aid training with St. John's Cross Association on Tuesday. It was a two day training sessions. Although I would like to have opted for a one day course (and a self study of 8 hours), the thought that came to me was that since I am paying the same price for whether one or two days, I might as well have a face-to-face interaction with my trainer rather than study alone without feedback from other people.

There was a 45 Multiple Choice Question which we had to fill in and could only get 10 out of 45 questions wrong. = 35 was the maximum we needed to get to get our Statement of Attainment for the workshop. Well, thankfully I passed! I also learnt to do the CPR, have basic training with the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and the emergency numbers to call within Australia.

So yeah, that comes my First Aid qualification which will last me for the next three years till it expires. Hei wait, did I just see someone fall of his bicycle??

A post-flu & graduation update.


A post-flu & graduation update.

Hi readers, am now officially back to work. I was much better by Monday (which was Queen Elizabeth's Birthday), after being ill for two whole weeks sniffling, and had a fever that fluctuated up & down like nobody's business!

And now? Well, actually there remains still some remnants of the flu. I really have to maintain my health during this cold season. I don't really have anyone who could look after me. Boo Hoo Hoo... Anyway, it's common in countries when Autumn/Winter comes, when many people WILL catch the bug.

How's life in the past few months post-graduation?

Life as a survivor in Sydney.. I finally have shown it to my family that one can be independent when they make their mind to do so. Personally, although unsaid, I suspect that there is that smugness in my parent's minds. LOL. (Nevermind, it is a typical parent thing...). My mom definitely is of the opinion of my strong willness & independence of mind in that matter. LOL.

So what are my plans? I am finally done with undergraduate studies, (thank heavens!) so for now it is a matter of building my career (with the option of settling down with a family should that ever come up. LOL). The question of what I could build for my future is something that needs much prayer & planning, & whether I want to remain indefinitely in Australia for that very purpose.

One of my goals when I was younger was to go & see the world and live in a foreign country. Having done that in the past two & a half years, I am grateful for the opportunity to have done that & live, study & work in provincial Australia, as well as visiting New Zealand where some of my kin are.

In the process too, I had also discovered myself & built a 'living" relationship with my Heavenly Father during my time in Toowoomba. I guess, with the hustle & bustle in the busy city life of KL, it was difficult for me to even seriously find time to hear God's voice, nor to see his hand working personally in my life. Away from it all, it was an opportunity, where I did not have much options but had actually even endeavoured to spend personal quiet time with Him to hear him speak & work into my life.

My next course of action will determine what I could do for the rest of my life, so it is definitely something I have to seriously work out & pray before doing so. Just pray that I make a wise one.

Yes, that is SICK with a capital. I've been caught busy with work (thoroughly blessed if I may say so!) and now caught the bug.

I've got a sore throat, running nose, cough & fever. Periodically reaching for the tissue paper to blow my nose!

This is my second week being sick, what with Winter coming, and working children who have snotty noses all the time. It is contagious,if I may say so. Can't really work well under these circumstances. Going to have a 5 day weekend this week.

Have fun!
