Just A Random Update

Halloween is like 2 weeks away. I don't know why I kept having the impression that Halloween is on the 10th of Oct. Halloween is definitely one of my most favorite festival, but believe it or not, I have never celebrated Halloween before. I mean it's like unlike in other countries, people still go door to door for Trick-or-Treat. But in Singapore, I am given the impression that it is about either pubbing or clubbing with scantily clad females and hopeful males. I don't know about you, but I feel that it is no different from normal days except the twist of dressing.


Halloween: The evening of October 31, the eve of All Saints' day is observed by children in costumes who solicit treats often by threatening with minor pranks.

If only I could dress up and go knocking on doors for treats.
But obviously the only treats I will be getting from doing that are only annoyed stares and probably a good hell of scoldings.
Anyway, I would be working during that day, fat chance am I going to celebrate it.



Anyway, I have started work and I am working days 6 days a week. 
Hell it is draining energy from me.
 I want to climb up the corporate ladder.
Probably aiming too high but I hope I would get what I want. I want to be a successful lady. It would definitely take time.

I applied at 2 companies for interviews.

Company A arranged an interview for me.
The first interview went pretty smoothly. The interviewer asked if I am sure I want to work there. He felt that I am 'over-qualified' for just an Admin position and could have applied for better job with better pay. I replied with a firm yes. He then proceeds on filling me with the information on the job scopes expected of me. I was pretty shocked that an admin there actually have to do sales (some more have to hit sales quota horz!) My asking pay was $1*** and he asked what is the lowest I can go, I quoted lower than $1***. I felt that it was justified since I have to do sales too and I do not get any commission from it. He asked if I am ok with working 5.5 days a week and probation pay of $1600. I thought about it and said I'm fine with it. I mean it is of no harm since I do not have sufficient working experience. He then asked me if I am sure that I want to work there and I replied "yes". With that, he arranged a second interview for me.

The second interview was with a personnel from higher management.
He too briefed me on the job scopes and I thought " So, am I going to get employed since the both of them kept briefing me on my job scopes?" And then, he saw my asking pay. He said "Hmm... $1800..." before going onto other stuffs and ended the interview with " We will call you."

I left thinking was it because my asking pay was too high? 
I later learnt that small companies don't usually pay high to their employees and love to exploit them. Never mind that. I can't complain about that.

Then I went for an interview for Company B.
And yeah! I am damn happy that I have gotten the job on the first interview! Initially I thought the interviewer was pulling my leg but hell no! Although I've got to work 6 days a week, but the probational and after-confirmation salary is way way higher than the  first company. 
Not bad for a start!


Because of the nature of my job, I have changed my dressing totally.
Guess what, my sister was so kind to sponsor me with office wear (dresses) and kept a good look-out for clothes which she thinks are suitable for work and yet kept the style I love. * Talking about having a good sister * I chose dresses which allow me to ride to work. 

For example, this...



Now the clothes in my wardrobe are collecting dusts. They are too casual to be work-attire. I have only a few pieces of office wear and I absolutely hated them. The skirt that I have doesn't allow me to ride to work and I look so skinny in it. Thank goodness I am able to ride with stilettos. But now, I often sport pumps to work for comfort. 

So far, I am pretty happy working there. It keeps me occupied and I definitely learn a lot. I am exposed to different aspects of a company's operations. There is space for growth. I feel that there is a better chance of proving myself here as compared to Company A. I will definitely work towards my goal and hopefully I will get there.
