So much so that I want to stay in a better house with a kitchen so that I could cook, I am grateful for a clean place to stay and it is within walking distance to my workplace.

So much so that I want to be in a bigger company with more benefits, I am grateful for being able to leave work on time almost everyday and have some me-time after work.

So much so that I wish to have more income, I am grateful for mom and dad who are always there for me whenever I need them.

So much so that I wish to spend more time with my loved ones, I am grateful for staying not too far apart from them.

So much so that I wish to eat good food everyday, I am counting my blessing on every meals I have.

So much so that I wish to be a millionaire one day, I am grateful to be able to save before I spend. And so they said, it is not how much we earn but how much we save.

I have so much hope and expectation of myself. I wanted more income. But then I thought to myself, am I enjoying my life? Restricting myself from many things so that I could be on track.

I have no fear of missing out. I don't mind eating my plain oats everyday. But sometimes, I just feel that there is something missing in my life which I have no idea what is it. I have my job. I have my family and friends. I have a car. I have a shelter even though it is rented. I tried to save as much as I could. But yet, there is something missing. Is it the social life that is missing? Or is it that the once reading habit is missing?

I used to read and engrossed into the world of fiction. I do admit that technology has taken its toll on my life. Day and night I scroll my phone. Day and night I checkout instagram pictures.

Perhaps I should take a week off my phone and do something else to improve my life. It is now or never. So I guess it is time to find out what's missing in my life.

Motivation came running after me today when it poured while I was at the park so I ran home!

Cooked fish maw and fatt choy for the first time for lunch today at the office. It was a peaceful day as most of them have gone to Saigon for company trip. A few of us didn't go as we, new comers, would have to pay 70% for the trip. Next year I shall be able to go for holidays under company's expense yay! *Looking forward*

Giving myself a pat on the back as today marks the fourth consecutive day I spent my evening after work at the park trying to run 5 full rounds and did some other workouts thereafter. Although it rained today and I wasn't done with my exercise yet, I did it in the compound under the shelter. Never felt so satisfying after a good sweat. And no unhealthy snacks today. Surprise I was quite satisfied with my almonds today.

Another day of work and it is the weekend already! Gonna make tomorrow count!

Happy Jean

Dear diary,

Today is Wednesday. Little did I know that the weekend is just two weekdays away. And today is the third day of work since Chinese New Year break. Work is as usual. But after all the non-stop eating during the past week, I am constantly hungry in the office and always on the lookout for snacks. Salty snacks. Yes. My almonds can't seem to make me satisfy. Bakua from Jo on the first day of work plus hoi kung lunch by our beloved bosses at Annie 1 cafe. Then on Tuesdays, we had Sabah snacks from Angie and today I had the same snacks from her. I tried to resist but I still gave in eventually. Oh well, seems like it is gonna be another CNY week for me. Teehee.

Okay. So what makes me happy today. To leave work on time and to spend time at the park are what make me happy on weekdays. Both which I have done for three consecutive days post CNY. Yay! But what made me happier on Monday were when I received angpows from bosses and colleagues and when my bosses instructed me to join them for lunch. I rarely go out for lunch as I usually diy in the office to save cost. Most of the days were oats. Pre-CNY, to be precise. Fast and easy plus I don't really like sweating. I leave the office, I sweat.

Sometimes, it is not about which company we are working in but it is the environment and the people whom we work with are all that matter. I am happy with where I am now. I know that three months is too short for me to say that but I have no regrets rejecting IBM. Well, truth to be told, one of the reasons why I chose to stay in my current company was so that I won't be a bad person who would leave the company after being treated exceptionally well by the bosses. Bosses who went beyond their limits and offered me a place to stay nearby the office so that I could walk to and fro work and not waste time in the jam. It is always the little things people do that touches my heart. It is the little things which I think I wouldn't have deserved but they grant it to me anyway. And they made me continue to have faith in human kindness. I can't wait to receive my confirmation this month end and hopefully I will get a pay rise! Keeping fingers crossed!

Till then.
