Reminiscing the days that we had

Met up with Pearlyn, Kenn, Uncle Eddie (who was back to renew his passport) and Alicia (who was back from Swiss for a holiday in Singapore before heading to Hong Kong for her internship). We caught up with each other, talking about current happenings in and out of USS and Kenn reminded us that yesterday was our second year working in Resorts World Sentosa. Our first day having our OJT with Park Services. I miss the days that I had during internship. I miss the managers and the crew that I was working with then. Internship days were the best days of my life! Given a chance, I would really want to relive it! :O)

Things that were done before turning twenty-one

This was my first stay over in a luxurious hotel. For the past few years, I have never stayed overnight at chalets which includes birthdays, class gatherings and what ever. On Monday (26 December 2011), I stayed overnight at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Tower 1 Level 12 Room 86. It was a grand room and it was around three quarter the size of my home.

All thanks to Shermaine’s parents who booked a room and Shermaine invited us for a stayover, at the same time to celebrate Stella’s 21st Birthday. Before reaching MBS, I accompanied my brother for his first book-in after his two weeks of book-out from the camp.

Then I headed to Marina Bay via Promenade Station. When I stepped onto the Olympic Park, I saw this breathtaking skyline at Marina Bay just beside the Floating Platform. The wishing spheres for the Marina Bay Countdown was there. Lasers and lightings were flashed onto the spheres that were floating on the river. Many took photos of it and of course I did!

Things that were done before turning twenty-one

两年前的今天

我认识和结交了一群志同道合的好同事。这一天,我们一起上了OJT。跟了一个非常棒的经理Grayson学习了整个工作的过程,玩了Enchanted Airways. 虽然我已经离开了那个工作岗位,可是我非常怀念实习期所发生的点点滴滴。谢谢你们给了我一个美好的回忆!Alicia, Kenn, Uncle Siew Foo, Kelias, Jerome, Uncle Eddie.

BUSY WEEK.

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven’t been blogging for the past two weeks after the StanChart Marathon. Was really really busy with school projects and all. Finally I’m having my three weeks break before the Spring 2012 term starts on 16 January. Everything has been great so far. Xmas was spent working at USS with close to 17k crowd (which was really really tiring). Crowd management is a skill to be learned I feel as huge crowds are always hard to manage. -.-

After Xmas its New Year’s Eve. Time flies and I’m heading to Marina Bay Sands Hotel for a stay over with my Uni clique and a birthday celebration for a friend.

Annual Marina Bay Countdown 2012 is coming soon and I haven’t been going for any of the events that was organised due to the amount of work that I was assigned to and kinda missed all the deadlines. 😦

Hope y’all had a Merry Christmas and have a blessed new year ahead!

 

BUSY WEEK.

We Are Young – Glee

One of the awesome-est song I heard from Glee!

Give me a second I
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom
getting higher than the empire state
my lover she’s waiting for me
just across the bar
My seats been taken by some sunglasses
asking ’bout a scar
and I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
but between the drinks and subtle things
the holes in my apologies
you know I’m trying hard to take it back
so if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
than the sun

Tonight
we are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight

Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight

The moon is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
The angels never arrived
but I can hear the choir
so will someone come and carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight
