The Battle of month end closing.

This is the 2nd month-end closing of the accounts.
As usual, its a war in the office.. Lucky thing, i got my sword on the right hand and my shield on the left, all ready for battle !

A few nights, we had to work till after 9pm, or even 10pm, each day was fully packed with never-ending things, from 8:30am till 9pm. While we are doing task A, task B, C, D, E, F, comes rushing us. And in between all these tasks, we are needed to learn new things.
The whole team is Physically and Mentally stressed out.

As such pressure build up, people tend to be more short-tempered, (i admit i am one of them too) and quarrels start from such situations too.

Many times, i really feel like giving up, and tender my registration (Yup) but i overcame it. However i am not sure how long this can last, as i always drag myself to work nowadays..

So as a reminder to myself and all my friends, do keep cool.
Work is never ending, work to your very best and dont give yourself too much pressure! 

"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I don´t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it.

You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That´s how winning is done.

Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain´t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody.
Cowards do that and that ain´t you! You´re better than that!" (Rocky Balboa)

Try playing this in your head, always.

Complains of work aside, let's see what Hong Wei been doing this weekend ? =)

Saturday, i was at Orchard area and was shopping for the colleague in my department, who is leaving us next week.( means = More Stress at work)
While shopping, i found something i like!

A new watch!
Nice, isn't it? =)
Bought it to reward myself for the hard work.

Sunday was mostly of resting and clearing up of things.
I cleaned up my hamster's cage, and it is now enjoying its clean cage. =)

There it is, climbing up the side of the cage just now. Hehe!

I cleaned up part of my room too, at least now it looked a bit neater, as compared to before.
I sorted out the textbooks and notes i had while i was taking my Diploma papers, packed them nicely into a plastic box. Haha!

I also sleep quite alot, i sleep will 1pm today, and also took an hour nap after i done the cleaning up.
I am so sleepy, even now while im writing this post, shall turn in early today, in prepare for the upcoming busy week...

How was your weekends, my dear friends? =)

Will it be me ?

Hello all friends!

Few days back, Hong Wei was being invited to take part in an event called: Tiger Beer Regional Online Influencer Challenge !

As far as i known, i had always been having my eyes sticking on the tv screen whenever a soccer match is being played.. discussing over lunchtime with colleagues of how the previous Barclays Premier League matches went... and of course, the recent World Cup! =)

While typing this entry, i suddenly recalled, one birthday present my friend bought me, many many years back.

A Man-United jersey, Hor~ HAHA!!

Forgot to mention the prize for the challenge.
A chance to go to Manchester and meet up with Wayne Rooney! He's also the brand ambassador for Tiger Beer!!

If my dear friends, do you feel that I should be the one to win the chance to go to Manchester and meet up with the man himself (or even scratch his backside?)

If the answer is "Yes!", please kindly drop a comment with:
- Your URLs to your social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

So easy! =)

Thank you all for reading, good luck to me!! =)

The Ghost Festival a.k.a. the Hungry Ghost Festival

Today, is the first day of the seventh Lunar month, or the so called Ghost month.

During this month, you will be seeing people praying and placing offerings along the pavements.

Laugh at me for being superstitious, there are some advices(or things you might already know.) in which i would like to share.

Like how my mum and grandma always say, "Hong Wei, ah.. dont step onto the joss sticks, offerings or incense paper hor.. it's for the good brothers one.."

When i got older, i realized that the 'good brothers' mum and grandma referred to was actually the spirits/ghost, who will be given a month ''holiday'' on human world during this month. Therefore, the offerings are for them.

*So do not step onto the offerings, when you see them.*

During this month, we are advised not to stay out too late during the night.. if you really staying out late, for ladies, try to get a friend or buddy to walk home with you.

It is also a month of  'concert-like' live performances, called 'Koh-tai' by the Hokkien-speaking people.It is usually performed by a group of singers, dancers and entertainers on a temporary stage that setup within the residential district of certain areas in Singapore.

*Do note, the very first row of seats are meant for the 'good brothers'*

Some video clips of  'Koh-tai'..

So for this month, be safe, don't stay out too late. =)
