World No Tobacco Day!

World Tobacco day is held on 31 May yearly. I went to a music event at Plaza Singapura to support this event. I did not know that just making cigarettes will require cutting down a big area of the forest and harmful to the environment. I am glad that I do not smoke and swear not to smoke in my whole entire life.

Smoking do harm  the environment and people’s health. Even the person do not smoke, they would still smell the bad tobacco smoke in some public places. Even if it is cheap, I would not want to pick this bad habit up at all. Harmful to health, Harmful to environment as 2000km2 of trees will be cut down just to make tobacco and cigarettes.

Educate the public on this is not going to be an easy job. People have to be a role model. The government is trying to tax more on these items and increase the number of places of non-smoking areas.

If people do not smoke, they can spend money on other things and pick up good habits. Why not? Let’s be smoke free. I would hope to ban smoking in my house too.

That’s all folks.


Colour moods: Grey

Grey is my current mood. Not really in a good mood when the company kept on banking money into the wrong account and cannot even withdraw money from the account.

Mood worsens when career hits part of the lowest point. Why I do not deserve to get some other training? Am I useless or dispensable? Even if I do not surf those website during office hours, do i really deserve this? Why need to hire so many people to cut past me and push me even lower and lower? Why cant they get a new staff with no experience to take over some posts? Why cant they put the senior staff upwards? When will I shine?

Why newer staff get better training than me? why cant they train me earlier in some other areas 1st than to let me wait, wait and wait? How long can I wait? How much longer? 2 years? 5years? 10years? My fate has been twisted all around and how can I feel happy in such a working environment? Why nobody wants to think how others feel? I cant stand to remain at the back of the pack, just because I do not have the background.
Just because I do not have the basics. Just because I am under contract. I am a local yet my fate is like that.
If every company or dept is like that, there is bound to have resentment from some staff.

Am i an outcast of this dept? Am I ready to be out of this place? Do I need to have enough and more specialised skills to stand out and get a better job? And shine out.

When will my light turn brighter and who can lit up my darkness, my greyness and brighten up my life? Who can change my life into better and more brighter?

How can I prove myself? Patience or get a transfer? Hope God will lead me the right path and I will make the right choice from there. What will be my option? Be a perm staff? Pursue my passion in my next job and be a more happy person? What can I really do?

I do not feel good if the environment remains like that. More people will go into IMH at this rate. I need to go for more upgrading course and gain experience from volunteering jobs to build up my portfolio.

THe world is so competitive and I need to get more specialised skills to prove my own worth. Meanwhile, I need to keep on learning. Learning day by day and enjoy my life while I am learning. Learning to be a better person. Learning to look things in a different perspective. Learning to let go all of my bad memories as I have forgot my unhappy life. Learn to smile more often and Learn to plan ahead of life.

That’s all folks.

Sports: Cold Storage Kids Run

By the way, I just want to tell you all that I do like to help out in some sports events and may take part in a few of  the sports events if I have the time. Normally, I will tend to do brisk walking or light jogging.

This is my first time helping out for Cold Storage Kids Run event. This event is much more different from the event which I usually help out in. The t-shirts and tags are so nice. Happy green chase, sporty red chase, singapura financial sky blue chase, sunshine orange chase, speedy purple chase, boogey blue chase. So many interesting names match up with different colours. Haha

The t-shirts labelled “I am a proud runner”, “I am a proud parent”, “I am a proud volunteer”. However, there is a question ringing onto my head. “Do I feel proud?” I feel proud that for the kids as they can run with all their might and this race is to encourage the kids to move on and be happy. Many parents signed up their kids to join this event. It is to instill confidence in the kids and positive encouragements from the volunteers and parents do make some difference and making me still wanting to help out for more sporting events. Of course, as a volunteer, I felt quite sad that some kids overexerted themselves and felt discomfort after finishing the race. Some even fell and injured themselves. Asthma attacks too. Luckily there were medical staff from KKWCH.

Saw Joanne Peh, Ann Kok and Mr Teo Ser Luck’s whole family during the event as well. However, I did not have the time to stay longer as the weather was unbearable and hot. I was dehydrating and smelly at the end of the event. Now, I am going to watch TV.

That’s all folks.
