once upon a norza

i am norza and this is my blog
 

feeling draft'y

I have 3 other draft entries on my blog but everytime I finished one, I would click that "Save as Draft" button. There wasn't anything exciting to blog about anyway.

My typical day:

wake up. have a shower. have breakfast. go to work. lunchtime. go home. staring the pc or watch teevee (if there's anything worth to watch). sleep.

Ok, I do read the famous threads about malay celebrities gossips on the mommies forum...haha. i wouldn't know that i.s.h.a.k a.h.m.a.t just died last week or A.w.i.e married another one if I didn't read the threads. When it comes to news, I'm very slow. I even read the Sunday Times which is one week due. And that's just because I like reading the Sunday comics and Life section. I would rather read real news from other sources rather than our local media.

And suddenly everyone I know is changin job or have a new job already. Since I graduated in 2003, I've worked for at least 3 different companies. Interviewers have the impression that I'm a job-hopper. Aside from the fact that I was a fresh grad and most job wants someone a few years of experience, Singapore also had a recession at the time I graduated. I grabbed whatever opportunity which was thrown to me. The pay was ok lah...no complains since I was single at that time and I just need money to fund my hobby: photography. heh. The people were great too and it was the first time I worked for a Malay company. But I decided to find a new job since the company was said to be having some financial problems.

Later I got 2 jobs at the same time, alternating days between designing print ads and brochures for a travel agency and teaching computer to lil kiddies. Money wasn't too good but fortunately I got some monies from the startup company formed by me and 3 friends. I have some funds from teaching some kids in our Mendaki Tuition Scheme as well.

Finances were manageable. Emak used to tell me, "Baik kau simpan duit tuhh, jgn blanja...ke haper ader org nak dtg meminang..."

And true enough, someone did meminang.:P On the day his parents came to meminang, I just got back from an interview. I later got that job and was contracted to a ministry body. Of course, everyone complains about their job but I don't want to complain about my job lest I get sued. heh. I have been fortunate to have had great folks around me amidst of all the shite i'm getting. But I applied other jobs in the hope of a better pay and a better design exposure.

So did I get a new job? Well, I've signed the new contract and waiting for medical clearance. The feeling of going to a new place sure is different than the excitement I felt 3 years ago. Perhaps I'm getting older and the intention of getting a new job is not just purely for myself but it's more of saving up enough to 'retire' and look after Aisyah (and hopefully number 2 (and beyond) to come). hurhur.
