Did I mention before that one of the main reason that I continue blogging
is because I like to type on the computer keyboard ? :X
Okay here I am blogging again in an obvious effort
to revive my blog.
Things are boring recently.
There’s no NP events recently , so it’d been
school, work, school, work, school, work and school.
And meeting friends every 17 days or something ?
I can’t remember, I don’t have good memory.
Let’s talk about school for a little.
My previous semester’s GPA was 3.109.
Which was lousy if I compared it to my classmates.
(I think I’m the bottom few.)
Never the less, I
was am still very motivated to score well
for this semester 😀
– The modules this semester seems pretty easy. For now.
– I am promised an iPad for 6As / a Kindle for 4As.
For every A I get I will be given …. Nah, not gonna tell you.
See, it’s a sure win situation for me. OOPS :X
Tsk, my mouse spoilt.
(Before I continue the post below this sentence, I chatted with a few
friends on FB, showered, browsed FB, watched some video. 3 hours has
Okay, so that was about it for school ? So far from what I remembered.
Work’s the same, nothing much.
It’s like sitting there and get paid for it. My job is easy.
Despite saying so I really learnt a lot from my job,
not exactly job related though.
Boss really taught me how ugly the world
really can get really is,
how naive I was … Actually, still am .
I got really sad when he told me stories and how the world really
is like, especially the sales section.
There’s also the fellow part timer, 26 YO.
They told me/ what I’ve learnt :
– Enjoy while you can , there’s really no time for you
to even do nothing when you come in to the society.
It’ll all about family, earning money, and money again.
– Don’t get married too early.
Or even worse, they kinda changed my mindset about the
entire marriage thing.
What I thought was really like, be in love, get married, have kids,
happily after. While maybe because I didn’t think that much.
Come on, I’m 17 only.
But they really showed me the … dark side ?
No, there’s no cookies at the dark side.
My boss showed me how … fragile a relationship between two
person is .. Yes, showed. :/
It seems like you’ll never ever gonna know if that’s the
right person for you, probably not even til you die.
– Don’t get in to sales.
Gosh, you really have to work every single day !
No public holidays what-so-ever, not even on weekends. Siao.
– Money IS important.
– People are materialistic.
That’s about it, it’s so depressing I don’t wanna think about it
There was this very young and beautiful looking auntie
who came to the shop and we (Her, me, boss) had a good chat
about live outside Singapore.
She was a Singaporean who emigrated to Australia 20 over
(Before I continue , I have something to confess ..
I got distracted for about 2 weeks before coming back here to complete my post.)
So, what she told us was that Singapore is a shining star country in the
eyes of the foreigners in the country. She said the people there thinks very
highly of Singapore. I didn’t have the chance to ask her why.
I asked her if it is stress living there, as in if the standard of living there
is high. She , surprisingly to me, said not at all. She told me the life there is
near to blissful, everyone ends work early and there is no such thing as
over time. People don’t put ‘work’ as priority over there.
Work ends at about 5pm every day and get their pay by weeks or fortnights.
The life there is not stressful at all. Only minus point is that there are no
yummy food like we have here in Singapore.
She told me the comparison of Australia and here.
She really likes it here in Singapore. BUT the life here is quick paced
and stressful. Like a train there can’t stop moving.
The standard of living here is way more expensive then there.
In fact, it’s way more expensive than most of other countries.
I was shock, but at the same time I have to agree even though I didn’t live
in other countries before.
I myself feel it as a 17 years old girl. I have to work part time and study
at the same time ? Although it’s totally by choice.
I felt pretty sad when she said that. I love this country, but because of our size
and system and kiasu-ness, this environment is way too stressful.
Just look at the people waiting for MRT .. (AND HOW INSIDE GOT SPACE PEOPLE DON’T WANT MOVE !)
Apparently there are no space left at the entrance, they die die also want to squeeze in.
And me being a little small in size always no need move people at the back will
push me in.
This bring me back to my all time favourite topic.
Our education system.
On the other day, I had a quick conversation with one of my lecturer about the ed system.
Yes, the richer people/family is at an advantage end of the entire system !
Only 4/10 people from tops schools are living in HDBs, others lives in
condominium, terrace and stuff.
Ya, you may think okay what, considered a lot. NO !
Do you know how many HDBs we have in Singapore ? It’s all over the place !
And only 40% comes from HDBs ? Siao.
Let me analyse.
Kids born in wealthy family have less things to worry about.
Parents are rich enough to hire maids that will pretty much clear all the chores.
They will not hear ” AH BOY UH ! GO WASH THE PLATES !”
or ” WOI ! SWEEP FLOOR ! THEN KEEP THE CLOTHES !.
Which you have to agree hating to hear all these from your parents.
This shouting thingy from them will distract you from studying if you were.
It also takes up your studying time. Or your playing time, which cannot be shorten will
eat into your playing time.
Us as the poor kid, will spend time thinking about the stuff we want but can’t have.
Rich kid ? Point and get it.
Rich kids have their own room too, and their own comfy personaly space to study.
Poor kids don’t.
I shall not elaborate anymore, I have blogged about the other points before.
Okay .. That’s about it .
Can tell I am under a lot of lame stress lol.
(Finally completed this post haha)
