The intern,

work has consumed me once again ever since i started my internship. i have been working eight hours a day, excluding three to almost four hours of traveling to and fro my work place, six days a week. if you're wondering, i'm working at a call centre. eight hours on the phone and on the web, it can be really draining. and especially on days w bad weather, the other day we had about hundred eighty calls on the queue, i didnt even get to pee. i dont like my job. but i'm not complaining. i dont hate it either. work can be really interesting. i've never talked to so many people in my life a day! i mean i get to talk to at least three hundred people a day, and i have to decipher all kinds of accents, even have to deal with difficult passengers, talk to the drivers etc.
though we are heavily underpaid and i had to wake up at 5am on alternate weeks, plus work spells end of social life for me, i know i'm learning so so so much. in fact, all the people i encounter everyday never fail to amaze me w new things. some people are really entertaining, seriously. and people can be really anal.... plus point, i managed to discover so many hidden places and road names along the way, love picking up new skills. way to go.

some overdued photos from jan, ikr.

we hopped over to fika cafe(finally.....) some time last jan, both of us had cravings for meatballs so bad then. fika's located at the corner of arab st and beach road, a perfect location for meeting up w your mates to chill and have some light bites. we were most lucky to have gotten ourselves a table since the cafe's pretty small. i went ahead w the swedish hash, and sean picked the safer choice - swedish meatballs. i love the diced potatoes, and onions and beef from the swedish hash, but some might find it a tad too salty. well, but i liked it that way. the meatballs were pretty decent as well.

later that evening, we went to yiqin's for steamboat. oh now i rmb!! this was post cny, wow i really am behind time. the same day, late at night, i also went karaoke w sean's parents as well as his extended family at a club along wessex. god, i haven sang for so long, and it was awkward.
