I said yes to this project based on trust, interest and confidence, without questions. At the initial stage, HR was rather stunned when I told them I would take whatever reasonable remuneration offered as I trusted their benchmarking. They had expected me to set a figure or negotiate; I couldn't be bothered. To me, it's very simple, I made a promise and it would be fulfilled, regardless. It's been three happy months. Not ruling out the possibility of dipping a foot in the industry again, but only on a project basis. I'm oddly fond of the work.
Meanwhile, byeeee to a great view of the sea, green and bits of an urban skyline. It's not even July, and all of a sudden, many flags have suddenly been hung out to wave in the breeze and haze. A bit kiasu, no? Anyway, it's a timely reminder that National Day is around the corner, and really, we must learn to celebrate the Singapore spirit, however we define that to be.
|The haze has given the usually stunning blue skies an off-color look. But I'm grateful for whatever we can get, well knowing that neighbors up north are hit when we're in the clear. Haizzz.|
