苦与乐

友人发简讯问我一个问题

友:一份事业能容得下多少苦与乐?
我:就看你如何看待苦与乐?如享苦中作乐,那何来之苦也?

他现在正想把事业扩大,但困难重重。有的时候,自己受的苦又有谁人知?

喜宴

2009223195428743_2

好久好久都没参加过朋友的婚礼,更别说是喜宴。今年收到不少的请帖,但很多时候是因为工事不在而无法参加。身边的朋友,嫁的嫁娶的娶,有的孩子也几个了,所以剩女无几了。。嘻嘻~(ehem,敏感话题,别问我~)因为我工作的关系,很多时候都不能太早答应出不出席。所以也搞得朋友们不好意思把请帖给寄过来。但不管有没有请帖,红包都不会少。 除了刚好我家办白事时请我的朋友,因为pantang没法给红包,不好意思。多多包涵。

今年公司节约,没飞。所以12月份的时候倒是出席了3场喜宴。见了好多好久不见的朋友。很开心!!其实一向来都不是很喜欢出席类似的“聚会”,因为通常周围都会比较吵杂无法好好的聊。但是可以重遇久违不见的朋友是个收获!出席婚宴是喜事本来就该开开心心的,就算有什么招呼不周或不满的自己知道就好也不好让主人家难做。这是身为朋友唯一能做的。

在这里祝福在2013里结婚的姐妹、兄弟们,恩恩爱爱、白头偕老、早生贵子!

Managing Relationship

The relationship I’m referring to here is working relationship with your business partner or counter parts in your working environment. My job required me to work with different working levels. From the engineers to C-level. Sometimes I’m dealing with understanding people and sometimes some jerks or bitches. I will have no choice but still to maintain a good relationship with them. Trying to put aside any personal feeling on this.

However, I do really have “this” issue with this Lady. The first impression is bad enough that I wish I could walk out from the whole deal (I do in some ways to avoid it…. but it still my job). I do feel bad when I have such feeling towards someone, but I’ve been assured by so many people that have dealt with her before they do have the same feeling. So I “should” feel better isn’t it? Sometime i just hope that I don’t need to “face” her anymore.But work is work, I can’t escape from this horrible “thing”.

So how horrible is she? She delayed her business call to me for 4 months. I met her bosses in Paris, her boss assured to assigned the person in charge in Asia to further discuss how we should work together. The first email came which is rude enough that there is no formal address of Hi nor Dear nor nothing….. An Asian working in Asia don’t even fxxking know the fundamental respect? (I showed the email to my colleagues and they thought the same) But since I don’t know her well, so I take it as just the cultural different. The best part is the telephone call that we had. She din’t even do her homework on what company I’m from and asking the stupidest questions that can be found on the company website! And whatever she promised and not deliver and there is no further follow up call.

A year later, I met her bosses again in Paris. They asked me why we don’t have any deals in Asia? I simply say cause there is no one following up with me and I’m not in need of your products. :) The things went viral and we are back in game again. However there is no apologised nor anything from her (from the conversation from her boss, she denied everything). Anyway, I’m trying to put things behind but I don’t see the cooperation from them. Is it going to work out well? I don’t know since the heat of needs is now cool off. I got some alternatives workaround without them.

So far in my working life I think she is the second person I don’t feel like working with. The first is my ex-colleague who back-stabbed me and this B is the second. Of course there will be people like this come an go from our life. A reminder to myself just be cool. :)

馬來西亞游記 北上

‘計畫永遠趕不上變化’,這句話套用在我們身上是絕配. >.< 原本是計畫到邦咯海島節,參與那邊的文化氣氛.但因為沒地方住(每家都爆滿!) 但因为假期已批,k建議北上,那我們就北上吧! m 在網上找到一間背包旅店,價格合理又有特價,而且看上去還不錯就訂了兩晚. 我們三人,我屬於最南部,k在吉隆坡,M 在怡保. 所以就以我開車從南部開始一路把他們給接了再一起到檳城去. 這一路上都沒怎麼計畫就自遊行嘛,一個輕鬆自在的旅行.走走停停,拍拍照,吃吃喝喝...但說到底還是吃吃喝喝最多.哈哈哈哈~ 三天兩夜,吃喝玩樂,無盡的歡笑,愉快的旅途. 希望我们下一次的旅行不会隔太久咯~ 這里上傳了一些這次旅行的照片.
